I’m a planner, always have been (which is annoying some of the time), with set goals for most things in life. In regards to writing, I had to look over my crazed (continuously breeding) plot bunny file and sort out what I’ll be working on this year. I knew I had to be realistic and write what stories can actually be done with my limited free-time. Real life derailed my plans in the fall, so writing goals had to be set aside for the last three months. It’s made me a bit irritable, I always feel good and positive when I’m working on writing projects, so knew I needed to decide what stories I absolutely have to do this year.

So here it is, the plan (hopefully realistic) in order:

Title: Can I Kiss You Now?
Fandom: James Bond (Craig Movies)
Relationship(s): James Bond/Q
Genre: Romance, Humor
Warnings: Explicit (perhaps)
Word Count: 10,000-15,000 (estimated)

2016-2017 00Q Reverse Big Bang Challenge

Summary Pending Posting! (Shhhh it’s a secret until Saturday).

4/1/2017 Updated: Currently on hiatus…

Title: Crescent City Boogaloo
Author: L.J. MacTavish
Fandom: Original Fiction
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Gay Fiction
Length: 80,000

Two years after the death of his long-time partner, NOPD Detective Oscar “Oz” Chadwick has no interest in romance or finding love again, no interest at all in opening his heart to another. Only his job, friends, and his saucy bit of good’s sister keep him focused to carry on despite his grief.

His job as a homicide detective for the New Orleans Police Department is always a good distraction, and Oz is on the hunt for a ritualistic serial killer causing chaos during the Carnival season.

With the FBI horning in on his case, his Police Commander riding him like Seabiscuit to solve it, and a one-night stand haunting him, in the form of FBI Special Agent, Jacques Verret. Oz must catch a killer stalking The Big Easy, all the while avoiding any additional romantic entanglements. You can read the first chapter here.

Title: Hunted
Fandom: Criminal Minds
Relationship(s): Spencer Reid/Aaron Hotchner
Genre: Suspense, angst, romance
Warnings: Canon-level Violence, Explicit sex
Word Count: 20,000-25,000

Criminal Minds Bang 2017 Challenge

The BAU is on the hunt for thirteen serial killers after a coordinated mass prison break. Little do they know one of the thirteen is after one of their own.

Title: The Descendant
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Relationship (s): Ansgarus Mauritius Pastorem/Ronon Dex; John Sheppard/Rodney McKay; OMCs OMFs

Warnings: Canon-level violence, explicit sex
Word Count: 100,000 (estimated)

July 2017: Battle of the Five Fandoms on Rough Trade

An Ancient warship finds Atlantis and the crew consists of direct descendants. A small contingent that has been in hiding for millennia. They can no longer sustain their population without inbreeding and had heard rumors of the Earth colonists on Atlantis. The captain is a young man, a descendant of Janus, brilliant and beautiful. Many of the crew have already ascended, but the Descendants that are left are not done living and fighting the creation of their ancestors.

Title: Camouflage
Fandom: Merlin (TV)
Relationship(s): Merlin/Arthur Pendragon
Genre: Alpha/Beta/Omega Dynamics, Romance, Suspense, Action & Adventure

Merlin is hiding more than his Magic from the King of Camelot.

Title: Perfect Illusion
Fandom: James Bond (Skyfall, SPECTRE)
Relationship(s): James Bond/Q
Genre: Romantic suspense
Warnings: Canon-level violence, explicit sex
Word Count: 60,000 (estimated)

Inspired by London Spy

James Bond meets a young man sitting on a bench by the Thames. They eventually become lovers though Edwin (aka future Q) doesn’t know James is MI6. Edwin is a librarian and underground hacker. James goes missing and Edwin works to find him with the help of his hacker friends and perhaps a burly former Royal Marine neighbor, save him.

In between the larger projects, I hope to get some more shorts completed in the fandom’s of James Bond (Craig Movies), London Spy, Merlin (TV), Sherlock (BBC), Star Trek (AOS), and Stargate Atlantis.

Best, The Nut.
