FIC: Out for the Season (Or, How Kissing Jim Kirk Made Hikaru Gay – For Someone Else)[Chekov/Sulu,M]

So after being MIA for ages I randomly return with a long fic. I started this ages ago and stalled out, and when I reread it recently I really loved it so actually finished it.

Title: Out for the Season (Or, How Kissing Jim Kirk Made Hikaru Gay – For Someone Else)
Author: cordelianne
Fandom: Star Trek XI/XII
Pairing(s): Chekov/Sulu with some Kirk/Sulu and Kirk/McCoy
Rating: Mature
Word count: ~22,600
Disclaimer: Sadly not mine, in any way.
Summary: High School AU. Hikaru’s parents think getting him a foreign exchange student will be a great idea. Hikaru thinks otherwise.
Warning: Jim Kirk is a sneaky scene stealer.
Notes: Undying thanks to savoytruffle for her invaluable beta and brilliant title… especially since Chekov/Sulu isn’t really her thing.
This fic is complete and posted in 5 chapters.

Star Trek Enterprise!

Hang On, I'm Running

I feel it's only appropriate that I break my accidental LJ silence (oops, hi everyone!) with talk of the new Star Trek.

Since it'll be spoilery, I'd better put it behind a cut: Collapse )

So I'm now pondering a Scotty & Chekov fic, and trying to come up with ideas for a Kirk/Sulu fic. If anyone has any ideas let me know!

I bring you links of things... from the President to Joss Whedon

In the wake of the depressing news of Amendment 1 passing in North Carolina (my sympathies to everyone who fought and voted against it), it's nice to have some cheery news. And we have that from none other than the President himself. Sometimes I just love Obama SO MUCH:
Obama announces official support of same-sex marriage!
[A]t a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married. - Barack Obama

Also, I love this video (thanks to spikedluv for posting this) which nicely states that the North Carolina Amendment asks the wrong question and avoids the fact that this takes away rights from many people:
The beautiful words of Reverend Dr. William J. Barber
However you feel about same sex marriage, religiously or personally, or morally, you can be for or against, you should always be against division and hatred, and discrimination being written into the Constitution. - Reverend Dr. William J. Barber

Wonderful children's author, Maurice Sendak, passed away and this is a lovely remembrance of his accomplishments:
And he sailed off through night and day and in and out of weeks and almost over a year to where the wild things are.
Roundly praised, intermittently censored and occasionally eaten, Mr. Sendak’s books were essential ingredients of childhood for the generation born after 1960 or thereabouts, and in turn for their children. - Margalit Fox

This past weekend, I was in Philadelphia where I managed to eat lots of good food, see many awesome sites (historical and the Van Gogh Up Close exhibit) AND still have time to see the Avengers twice. It's possible I loved it! So to close up my mini linkspam, a thank you letter from Joss to his fans:
Aw, Joss, you are a delightful sap and silly dude!
So this is me, saying thank you. All of you. You've taken as much guff for loving my work as I have for over-writing it, and you deserve, in this our time of streaming into the main, to crow. To glow. To crow and go "I told you so", to those Joe Blows not in the know. (LAST time I hire Dr. Seuss to punch my posts up. Yeesh!) Point being, you deserve some honor, AND you deserves some FAQs answered. - Joss Whedon
FYI: He does say he's working on a sequel to Dr. Horrible!

Okay, Cordelianne over and out!

Update... from Cordelianne?!

Hello all! It's been waaaaaaaaaay too long since I've posted here! I decided the only way to fix this is just to dive back in. I have been keeping on with your posts, but have been kinda lurky (I'm sorry!).

Updates on the life of Cordelianne:

  • I finally have a job! In my field! I'm working as a part-time Librarian in the Children's Department at a public library (my ideal library job, well, maybe except for the low pay and minimal hours!). I admit that the lengthy job search proved often depressing, frustrating, and stressful. However, it wasn't all bad....

  • Since the summer, Camisha and I have basically been living together! Things are going really well and we're very happy. We're in State College together (where Camisha's at Penn State finishing her PhD), and my job is at the local public library. The lovely Camisha deserves much credit because during my search for work, she was kindly supporting me. And in more good news...

  • We have started taking steps towards me getting pregnant. We're still in the preparation process but I can assure people I will post any good news related to this!

  • I am really missing my friends and family back in Toronto. I am doing a pretty good job of keeping in touch via email and Skype. But I still really miss them. I am getting to know more people in State College, though, which is nice.

  • I continue to be a pop culture and TV fiend, and am watching too much TV (I can't keep up with it all!). I'm loving The Good Wife, Community, The Vampire Diaries, Raising Hope, The Middle, Happy Endings, Parks and Recreation, Cougar Town, Sherlock and probably a zillion other shows I've forgotten!

  • I've been seeing some movies I've loved: The Artist, This Means War, Pariah. I'm looking forward to The Hunger Games, The Avengers and wish that the new Star Trek was coming out this year.

  • I am still, very slowly (in stops and starts) working on my Sulu/Chekov high school AU that I started an embarrassingly long time ago. But I have so much written, I must finish!

  • Now that I'm done school I'm reading a lot more, especially lots of kids' lit. I'm really enjoying the kid adventure series, The 39 Clues, as well as adult fare like Tina Fey's Bossypants, and The Orphan Master's Son.

That's it for now! *hugs*

Courage my friends, 'tis never too late to build a better world

Today is a sad day for Canadians, Torontonians and Jack Layton's family and friends. Early this morning, NDP leader and Canada's Official Opposition leader passed away from cancer at 61. Not only did he lead the left-leaning NDP to a strong opposition against the Conservative party earlier this year (the best results ever for the NDP), he was passionate, inspirational and well-loved by all (regardless of politics). My headline title was said by trailblazing early NDP leader, Tommy Douglas, who Jack Layton always quoted, and I am certain that Layton leaves a similar inspiring legacy.

I cried this morning and am very sad to hear of Jack Layton's passing. I remember voting for him as a Toronto city councilor many year ago and my respect for him continued throughout his career. He fought for the homeless, the environment, gay rights, and for all people without a voice. His passion and fighting spirit are inspirations to us all. My condolences to his family. We have all lost a great man.

In his final days, Layton wrote a letter which aimed to inspire us all (and I believe it has). His moving and inspiring last words:

My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.

All my very best,

Jack Layton

Rest in peace Jack Layton, I'm wearing orange in your honour today.

Hello! *Waves*

Hi!!!! Wow, it’s been an embarrassingly long time since I last posted. So instead of trying to sum up everything in my life, I thought I should post so people know I’m still alive and around.

Just a couple of updates:

  • I finished my degree and graduated! I am have a Masters of Information Studies – I'm a librarian! Now, if only a library would hire me. I am applying for lots of jobs so something has to come up soon… right?

  • While I look for work, I’m staying with the girlfriend down in State College. It’s nice to be with Camisha!! We’re also talking about future plans, such as having a family, which makes me VERY happy!

  • I haven’t been doing much writing, unless you count all the essays and assignments I wrote during the year, and all the job applications I’m working on now. I hope to do some writing again soon, especially since I do have fic ideas and am part way through a Sulu/Chekov fic.

  • I’ve still been quietly reading fic. Since there hasn’t been much Sulu/Chekov lately, I randomly have been reading in the Harry Potter fandom, especially Albus/Scorpious. Also, I’m intrigued by Erik/Charles from the newest X:Men movie. Does anyone have any recs?

  • I am SO EXCITED for the final Harry Potter movie!!!

Well, that’s it for now! My hope is that by posting a short post, it’ll inspire me to post more often!!
