Last day of the Project, and the last fic 'Into His Arms' is finished and posted!

Into His Arms, ~13 700 words.

To me, the project was a success: I finished three wip's, and within the time I scheduled for it.

I don't think the ends were as polished as they could've been, and over all the fics had plenty of inherit problems - plot holes, repetition etc. I'm not completely satisfied how the stories turned out, but I made finishing the stories my main priority - no endless rewriting. I picked one solution and then moved on to the next problematic part.

And now it's time to turn to the next three WIP's I have. The three I finished were the oldest WIP's, and the next three are the biggest: RBB, Path and Untitled 10K smut fic. But more on those later, after I've decided on the time schedule.

Now, victory lap *woo!* and then some ice-cream!

Yes, it's true: The Giant fell!

Meant For Each Other (For Certain) ~21K

The whole thing is in the kink meme in 30 parts, but I'll post it all at the AO3 today - I only had time for the first part this morning.

But it is finished, oh wow, I still can't believe it! Time for VICTORY LAP!

One fic left in this project, I think I can see the finish line glimmering in the horizon...

I finished and posted one of the three Project fics!

Wild Charms (6 727 words)

I wrote nothing but that whole day yesterday. I decided to follow the trader rule of thumb: "Cut your losses short but let your profits run."

That story pulled yesterday, it felt easy to write it, so I abandoned all time constraints and let it run. Perhaps it would've been wise to let the story rest for few days and then glance at it again, but to be brutally honest with myself, I've rewritten that story so many times that I don't know if there was a way to make a good story out of it anymore.
So I cut my losses at that point, and called it done.

Now, time to turn focus on the other two!

Title: You Love To Fail
Fandom: X-Men: First Class
Relations: Erik/Logan/Charles
Kink: shaving/depilation, caning, bondage (wrist/ankle), free square (bondage other)
Word count: ~1400
Notes: Written for xmen_firstkink meme prompt: "Charles likes to act like a bit of a brat in the bedroom in order to get taught a lesson by Erik and Logan. Erik and Logan argue about how much is too much while Charles just really loves both of their methods."

Story is a stand-alone, but it can also be read in line with the two fills for the same prompt, my another fill Green Light and OP's own fill "In Other Bedrooms" (same link as the prompt).

You Love To Fail )

Title: 20 Questions Or Over
Fandom: X-Men: First Class
Pairing: Moira/Erik, based on Moira/Erik/Charles triad
Kink: bondage (other), tickling
Word count: ~3000
Notes: Yet an another fic from the same starting point: Moira and Erik try to find the common ground. Like always, it is on Moira's shoulders to make it work (I think it is because she is the responsible one here)

20 Questions Or Over )

Title: Another Lover, Another Love
Fandom: X-Men: First Class
Relations: Erik/Raven/Charles
Kink: consent play
Word count: ~660
Notes: Erik likes to push people off the cliffs of their own making, even when they are not willing. (E/R/C triad)

Also written as a fill for an image prompt at Xmen-fistkink meme.

To the story )

Title: Picture Me And You
Fandom: X-Men:First Class
Pairing: Charles Xavier / Raven Darkholme
Kink: vanilla
Word count: ~1300
Notes: Raven attempts to play a game with Charles, but like in Calvinball, you can never play with the same set of rules twice.

Thank you all the commentators at [community profile] kb_cafe, who gave valuable pointers and thoughtful suggestions to my questions about the essence of vanilla kink.

Story was also inspired by xmen_firstkink meme prompt: "Charles brings home another random girl, and Raven pretends to be his wife or girlfriend to scare them."

Warning: nothing really sexual

This way to the story )
