my offer:
I can write drabbles, ficlets or fics to your art prompt, or just a general prompt if there's something specific you're jonesing for.
link to example(s):  My SGA fic is here, Hewligan here.
I'll write: pretty much anything you want me to, other than what's listed below.
pairings I'll write: I'm currently active in SGA fandom and write primarily slash pairings mainly McKay/Sheppard, but could write other pairings if motivated by the prompt.  I will not rule out femslash, but I think that would also depend on the prompt. The best rule of thumb here is to ask first about another pairings.  I've also written certain Hewligan crossovers, Boa v. Python/Thoughtcrimes (Brendan/Emmett) and I would consider writing RPS or any other Hewligan pairing I'm familiar with.  I also love writing Rodney's family, so anything including the Millers would be nice.  I've also written Lorne, OT4 and Gen, so I really do love to stretch my writerly muscles.  I have no problem with dark!fic or death!fic, if the prompt is right.  Again, a good rule of thumb – ask first in comments.
I won't write:  There are some things I won't write, simply because I don't have an interest in them (Mpreg) or a desire to go there (Violent/Non-Con/Rape).  I don't mind kink and will do light BDSM, but I won't write incest and will not write any character bashing.  Het is really not in my comfort zone (outside of OT4), but I would try if you've got a great prompt – although it is very difficult for me to pair John with anyone but Rodney (or OT4 as long as Rondey's there).  Absolutely no John/Elizabeth or John/Sam – sorry, I just can't.  Also, the only het pairing I feel comfortable writing for Rodney is Teyla and maybe Keller, but the prompt would be key there.  I love to write Carson, but I really can't ship him with anyone.  I think that covers it, but always feel free to ask first.  I can find inspiration from the strangest places sometimes and if you have a great prompt, I may not be able to resist.  

status: I'm busy as of September 14, 2008 and probably will be until the end of the year.  If you don't mind waiting, you could still leave a request - it might be something I could get to, you never know.

Having rewatched season four for my bigbang story, I've had a yen for some good Lorne/Teyla fic, especially tags for Spoils of War. Shippy or just friends, I'd be happy with either.

Sound like something you could do?
7th-Jun-2008 04:31 am (UTC)
I admit this does sound like an interesting prompt. I'd like to see what I could do with it. I will say, I have a June 30th deadline for artword but have to finish my fic earlier for my artist. Would after that be all right?
7th-Jun-2008 08:51 am (UTC)
Your artist. That sound s so possessive ;)

I think there's a mistake in your profile. Shouldn't that be 'I have no problem with dark!fic but death!fic is a big nono'?

*runs off... fast*
7th-Jun-2008 12:14 pm (UTC)
Well, I do have and artist, and she's mine (at least until June 30) and yes I am possessive ;D

What? I think death!fic can be done tastefully given the right prompt (see, there's my out).
7th-Jun-2008 12:27 pm (UTC)
That would be fine. I understand deadlines very well.
7th-Jun-2008 12:34 pm (UTC)
Great! If there is anything else specific you'd like other than what you've already indicated, just let me know.
7th-Jul-2008 01:12 am (UTC)
Hi, just wanted to let you know that I hope to get your story to beta in the next day or two - just to let you know I hadn't forgotten.
7th-Jul-2008 01:15 am (UTC)
Awesome! I look forward to it.
18th-Jul-2008 04:17 pm (UTC)
Hi, I have your story ready (at last) and do apologize, but I had beta woes. Anyway, I sent an email to the address in your profile, but will repeat here in the event you did not get that.

I wanted to find out how you would prefer receiving it. Would you like it emailed to you as a Word file, or would you mind if I posted to my journal and sent you the link? I wanted to give you the option and whether or not you wanted it posted publicly, or if you'd prefer to use the link to post it publicly yourself. Just let me know your preference. You can contact me at neevebrody at gmail (dot) com.

when I start pestering you with ideas for fics, know this;it was allllll your fault!!!*points at you accusingly* now that we've settled this,my idea-John/Rodney, AU John is still the military commander of Atlantis, everyone is there(Ronon already replaced Ford), but Rodney comes in later cause he's very young-as in early 20ties so he's just been recruited,yadda-yadda...and let the fun begins(and smut, of course*smirks*)...basically, me likey older John/younger Rodney and all the implications of their relationship...John having issues cause Rodney's young and inexperienced compared to him, maybe even didn't have a gay relationship before(ah, but who could resist John, right??*g*), fear of somebody finding out(or you could make it a complete AU where there's no DADT or it was repelled-I like that too,so..), John's intimacy issues, Rodney's intimacy issues or family issues(I like good characterizations of Rodney's family)..throw in what you like more...as long as it ends with them together and there's sex(and your Vincent/Brendan fics assure me you write fanfuckingtasticly hot sex scenes!!*fans herself*)-yup, now I'm blushing..*facepalms* so...could you write this?? I like how you can write smut and still make it a multi-layered character story*schmooozes you* I don't mind waiting...
22nd-Jul-2008 05:13 pm (UTC)
John/Rodney, AU John is still the military commander of Atlantis, everyone is there(Ronon already replaced Ford), but Rodney comes in later cause he's very young-as in early 20ties so he's just been recruited,yadda-yadda... I assume Rodney comes in as Zelenka's assistant – but still in Science Department, becomes a member of John's team?

Basically, me likey older John/younger Rodney and all the implications of their relationship...

I've not considered this type of scenario before, but admittedly, the idea is kind of intriguing. Let me pose something: Rodney, mid-twenties, he's not totally uninitiated as far as experimental sex, even with the same canon-based background, I see him a little more sure of himself than canon Rodney and since he's coming in late – I see him attracted to John from the beginning, but really works at not showing it, while at the same time not always being able to contain his flirting. John is also taken with Rodney at first, maybe because of the irritant factor initially, but soon John finds himself wanting to see Rodney, thinking up ways or reasons to go to the lab, get him on his team, etc. All the while, knowing what he's doing is not a good idea, but being helpless to stop himself. I would be inclined to write from John's point of view and have a good deal of internal dialogue about what he's going through, and of course, inevitably, he gives in to temptation because Rodney lets him know it's something he really wants as well.

Sound good? Or, do you prefer John to be the initiator?

...as long as it ends with them together and there's sex(and your Vincent/Brendan fics assure me you write fanfuckingtasticly hot sex scenes!!

*blushes* And from this, I take it you mean actual penetration sex? It's funny, I never realized how little I write John and Rodney that way, I'm not sure why. (will have to correct that).

My immediate deadlines: one story to finish for a friend; August 30th – birthday fic; September 1st – kink_bingo (though it's not looking too promising for me finishing); October 31st – auction fic due; November – mini_nanowrimo. So… I will propose to have your story finished by the end of October as well. Would that be acceptable?
22nd-Jul-2008 08:23 pm (UTC)
I like everything you suggested;woman, there is a reason why I asked you to write it(don't think I haven't looked at other authors)-I really like your style of writing*nods admiringly* and no problem regarding the deadline;I'm just really grateful and honored you'd write it(regardless of the fact that offered it in the first place*g*) so...write away...I don't know how your whole creative writing process goes(somebody never posted the answer on that question*levels a significant look at you*) but if you want to bounce some details regarding the story, e-mail away; if not, no prob.;I'm a 110% certain I'll love it*hugs you*
22nd-Jul-2008 08:37 pm (UTC)
*facepalm of shame* I know, I know I never answered your question - but I haven't completely forgotten about it, really. The Muse is apparently taken with this project as well - she's already throwing stuff at me (seems she likes young!Rodney, too).
22nd-Jul-2008 08:45 pm (UTC)
yay for the busy Muse*offers her chocolate*..hmm..what does one offer to a Greek Muse??*contemplates on that* anyway...yes,yes,yes...I'm getting a custom-tailored fic*is a very happy fangirl* and it's due right after my birthday in September...wow-that's even better*squee of epic proportions*
18th-Sep-2008 09:08 pm (UTC)
Hey sweetie! Just want you to know I HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN YOU! Really, I hate that I won't get this to you on your birthday, but I'm shooting for end of September to mid-October. Hopefully your fic won't grow a life of its own like my last two did. One was 12,900 words and the other was 9,200. Not that you don't deserve a good long fic, too, I just mean sometimes it takes longer to write 9,000 words than others!
3rd-Aug-2008 02:28 pm (UTC)

I saw you just recently took on a fic so I'm not sure if you're willing to write something for me as well, but I thought I'd give it a try. I'd like some fluff, please. Seeing that I'm usually an angst whore and that's all I'm ever able to write myself, I somehow feel the need for fluff at the moment. So, if you're willing to do this, I'd like McShepp. An AU where either DADT never existed or was revoked. First time, if you can manage - as graphic/fluffy/kiny/vanilla as you like. I'd like it to be somewhat realistic - meaning NO ONE is very good with a new partner for the first time. Maybe even one of them is still pretty inexperienced when it comes to m/m. It could even be John if you go for the DADT has just recently been overturned and he barely ever risked something because of that. I'd like for them to be open about the fact that they are together. *shrugs* That's about it. I know, not really much to go by but I really had the general craving for some nice, fluffy romance. With a bit of smut if you want.

I hope you'll let me know if you can make it or not, cause I tried this sort of thing here once before and she said she'd write me a fic and then I never heard of her again.

It's okay to say, 'sorry I can't make it' or 'I'm uninspired by your prompt, so no, I can't write anything' which I'd totally understand, but I was kinda sad when she just never contacted me again. Hope you understand.

That said, I'm looking forward to talking to you!

Hi! I would really like to write some fluff actually. It seems I've been too dark and moody lately. I think I have an idea to expand on a little piece I wrote for More Joy day and I could work in the DADT being rescinded. The only thing I would say at this point is that I have two obligations with deadlines of August 30th and then maybe I could free myself up to get this written. Would that be okay? Of course, if I can see my way clear, I'd try to get it to you before then. I never know... once I sit down to think about a fic, it may just all come out at once. Oh, and I'm really sorry you had a bad experience - I can assure you that I don't operate that way. If I see myself getting stuck and can't meet a time I promised you, I'll always let you know. Thank you so much for thinking of me.
4th-Aug-2008 02:02 am (UTC)
*squeee* That would be awesome if you could write something for me. I kinda love your fics, have for a long time but just now actually realized it's YOU. Duh. I mean... you know how it goes, you read something on LJ, find a link to another story in one LJ, click it .. get to another LJ and so on... And int he end I usually don't find my fav fics again and have to ask the nice people in some ficfinder comm.

Oh hey,no worries, take as much time as you need. I envy people who can work with timelines - I can't. Really, I'm serious I am incapable to work with timelines. I tried once. The fic was supposed to be short... now it's 3 years later and I have a 25.000 something words fic I regularily get stuck in...for months at a time.

So yeah, no timelines for me. Mostly also because I can't do short. the last "short" fic for a prompt table turned out 10.000+ words. All of my rabid plot kitten demand long stories and usually on top of it my beta goes "MORE!" and yeah that's the end of 'short'.

I'm so excited that you really want to write something for me. I feel all special. *wink*

Oh tell me about dark and moody. Sometimes it seems to be my default setting. Every attempt to write fluff ended in SAP and my betas insist that the fic not go online without a DIABETES WARNING! Guess I should stick to the angst after all.

It was very nice talking to you and I'm looking forward to what you come up with. I'm sure I'll love it!
4th-Aug-2008 02:04 am (UTC)
Um, that was me. I'm not really sure why I am suddenly anonymous. Anyway... THANKS!
18th-Sep-2008 09:06 pm (UTC)
Hey, just wanted to let you know I haven't forgotten you! I have finally completed fics that grew a life of their own and ate mine for the past 2-3 months. It is my sincere hope to have your story to you by the end of September - mid October at the latest. Thanks for being patient!
13th-Oct-2008 11:08 pm (UTC)
Hey there, sorry for not responding earlier. Thanks for still wanting to do this. I'm looking forward to whatever you have planned. Thanks again!
15th-Nov-2008 02:58 am (UTC)
*pokes you gently*

Hey sweetie, you still alive?

I just wanted to know if you're okay. You didn't answer any more and I thought I'd ask if you're still willing to do this. Maybe it can be my christmas present *blush*

If you can't make it after all, let me know?

Thanks, and I hope you'rea alright!
15th-Nov-2008 03:17 am (UTC)
Oh, how sweet of you to poke me 'gently'. I'm still very much alive. Some RL stuff got in the way for awhile and then things a work picked up and I've been trying to finish the fic I'm writing for another RAF recipient and mini_nanowrimo... but yes, I'm okay.

I'm also still very much willing to write for you and want to and the way it's looking, Christmas present might just be the thing. I'm really sorry it's taken me so long, but the fic I'm trying to finish gave me problems and I've really wrestled with it, but I'm hoping to have that posted in the next few days.

So, if you're willing to wait just a bit longer, I'm still willing to give it my best shot... actually, a little fluff is sooooo what I need right now.

15th-Nov-2008 03:36 am (UTC)
Okay, so 'poke'might not have been the best choice of words. It's 4.30 am and this is my second language.

I'm not sure if I interpreted the tone of your reply right, but you just sounded the tiniest bit ... *consults dictionary this time* exasperated? Worn out? Not sure.

Hey, you don't have to do it, you know that, right?

Nothing is worse than having to write a fic that just won't speak to you and you try to force it. I should know, I have several of those.

Honestly, you should only do it if you really still want to do it and not because you promised earlier.

Let me know how you decided. And yes, if you still really want to, then I'd love it as a Christmas present.

*hugs back*
15th-Nov-2008 03:48 am (UTC)
No, I think "poke" was the right choice, I was just surprised you would do it gently ;)

Worn out would be a good description, but really, it's been a bad week. I didn't mean to sound as if I was making excuses either. Good, you understand when you've got something that just doesn't work. Well a short little fic turned into a lot more and when it wasn't working, I had to shift gears and it's just one of those things. (I also tend to be a bit of perfectionist so that doesn't help matters.)

I do not feel obligated at all and like I said, very much want to write for you. I think once I get the other fic posted, I'll be able to stop worrying about it.
21st-Dec-2008 05:41 pm (UTC)
It's here: http://neevebrody.livejournal.com/85048.html

I can't thank you enough for your patience - I hope you enjoy it and that it's fluffy enough. ;)
