And now for something completely different...

Sooo... I wrote Sherlock fic. I know, I know, it's not Alice-related, but this is my WRITING journal and I can post things I write that AREN'T Alice, as rare as that occasion is. >.>

Anyways, whenever something in fandom bothers me I tend to write a fic that more-or-less states what my problem with that fandom is. In this case, my problem is that I'm a HUGE John/Sherlock fan, but I don't like all these shipping fics that have them hugging and kissing and being snuggly. I understand that it's cute and romantic and that's what lovers do, but what's so great about John and Sherlock is that they aren't a couple. They're a pair. A matched set. And having them be all huggy-kissy-snuggly is, frankly, writing them completely OOC no matter HOW great the dialogue is, ESPECIALLY in Sherlock's case. That man is not in denial, or being coy, or playing hard-to-get, or even aloof. Sherlock is Sherlock. Plain and simple. And he is NOT NORMAL so you can't just treat him like a normal person with snarky dialogue.

TL;DR Some fandom is turning John/Sherlock from a bromance into a romance, and writing Sherlock OOC in the process, and I've seen it happen with enough frequency that it annoys me. -_-;;

Plus, once I got in Sherlock's head I just started having fun. He is SO easy for me to write. Such a nice break, to have someone SO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT from every character in Alice. XP LAWL

Title: Nuance
Author: alittleoddish
Pairing: John/Sherlock
Genre: Genfic, but a relationship is alluded to
Rating: PG for language

Summary: Fact speaks for itself. And, as Sherlock knows full well, whenever one talks of facts, the nuances make all the difference.

In the Rough, chapter 26/40

Summary: "But this is starting to sound like a quest! Quests are such a pain, Alice, they really are. All horseback and food rations and traveling in groups and no truly hot tea, with significantly less sex against trees.”

A/N: Okay, so I'm uploading this a little earlier than I normally would be (because I usually like to write a couple chapters ahead of my uploading, so I have a que that I can mess around with if I change my mind about something), because I can't, on good conscience, leave you with that kind of cliffhanger for long! XD

I really want to thank all the people who've consistently left such lovely reviews - you guys are the reason this fic hasn't just stalled and floated into oblivion. I've got so many other multi-chapter fic ideas that have been tempting my attention, but you guys keep me dedicated to seeing this adventure through. It's about to get crazy, folks, so stick in there! I love, love, love you all.

"Sleeping Beauty", Alice/Hatter, AU

November 27th, 2010 (07:20 pm)

Title: Sleeping Beauty
Author: alittleoddish
Pairing: Alice/Hatter
Rating: PG
Genre: Angst/Tragedy

Summary: AU. A dark, dystopian fairytale-book retelling of the final scene of Syfy's "Alice".

A/N: This fic is very strange. Pieces of it have been hazily drifting through my head for ages now, and last night I was blocked on “In the Rough” and thought maybe I’d faff out a few sentences, and within an hour the whole fic in its entirety had spilled out onto the page. That makes it, to date, the quickest fic I have ever written. @_@

It’s a very twisted sort of fairy-tale. I meant for Alice’s world to feel like a stilted and flat version of reality, like a pop-up book. Then Hatter comes in, the only real thing, and she doesn’t even recognize him for what he is. He doesn’t fit. The end result is spooky and devastating, and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

In the Rough, chapter 25/40

November 21st, 2010 (12:28 am)

Title: In the Rough (25/40)
Author: alittleoddish
Rating: Mature
Characters: Alice/Hatter, Jack/Duchess, Charlie
Disclaimer: I don't own any part of Syfy's Alice.
Summary: "But this is starting to sound like a quest! Quests are such a pain, Alice, they really are. All horseback and food rations and traveling in groups and no truly hot tea, with significantly less sex against trees.”

A/N: Sorry about the long wait! The timeline of my next several chapters is really confusing, and I wanted to make sure I had it all straight before moving on, so I could shuffle things around if I needed to. I've had this chapter done for EVER in the meantime, but I figured that taking a pause of yet-undefinable length on such a cliffhanger would be cruel. ^_^ Enjoy!

Again, thanks so much to my GORGEOUS betas, zombres and randombattlecry! They are simply fantastic, they always keep me on my toes to provide the highest quality of writing I can. Also, thanks to my amazing Official Fandom Soundboard abscondinabox, with whom I have spent many-a-Skype session discussing the ins and outs of characters and plot, and without whom this story would undoubtedly be a disaster.

"Winter", Alice/Hatter

November 9th, 2010 (10:07 pm)

Title: Winter
Genre: Holiday Fluff, which in my opinion is its own genre. ^_^;;
Word Count: ~1,300
Pairings: Alice/Hatter
Warnings: There's so much holiday fluff in here, you might choke on it. You've been warned! X3

Summary: Hatter's first Thanksgiving with the Hamiltons, and he and Alice bring in the holiday season with a bang. Fluff and hilarity ensue.

A/N: I know, I've been posting so much recently! ^_^ I've made 30,000 words of Alice/Hatter fic for my mission_insane challenge my NaNoWriMo project this month, so hopefully I'll be busy, busy, busy writing and posting. I figured it was a worth challenge; 30,000 quality words in a month is difficult. >.< Wish me luck!

A/N: Yeah, I've been looking forward to writing this chapter for awhile. It's been formulated in my head since I drew up my first outline. <3 awww... ENJOY!

In the Rough, chapter 23/40

October 28th, 2010 (01:51 pm)

Title: In the Rough (23/40)
Author: alittleoddish
Rating: Teen Mature
Characters: Alice/Hatter, Jack/Duchess, Charlie
Disclaimer: I don't own any part of Syfy's Alice.
Summary: "But this is starting to sound like a quest! Quests are such a pain, Alice, they really are. All horseback and food rations and traveling in groups and no truly hot tea, with significantly less sex against trees.”
Warning: This chapter contains… (sigh)…

A/N: …You know what? I’m just going to change the rating on this sucker. There’s sex and blood and violence and then more sex just because I feel like it, and yeah I could just keep posting warnings, but why bother? -_-;; I swear there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, you guys! But part of the reason why I wanted to write this was because the characters in “Alice” are adults. I wanted to give them a big scary adventure, and basically…

Well, confession time, people. The whole reason I wrote this story is because I wanted to give everyone a chance to be more badass. That was my big motivator. They were great in the original series, every single one of them, but I knew that they were capable of more, and I wanted to write that. So this Grand Epic was born, and we’re swimming through the halfway-point, everything-goes-to-shit-point right now, and it’s going to get (believe it or not) a lot. More. Crazy.

I’m having fun. I hope you guys are.

Enjoy the chapter.
