'Sup, LJ/DW/whatever? Now I've got access back, I really ought to get into the habit of posting regularly again. Not that I really was before, but it's this or actually get round to working on my personal statement and/or emailing old university tutors who don't remember me asking them for letters of recommendation, and right now, procrastination is winning.

So, have a meme of sorts that I just made up - the following list is the file names of all the incomplete and/or abandoned WIPs I've got saved in my fic folders, organised roughly by fandom ('Australians' is my catch-all shorthand for anything relating to Aussie war fandoms - Changi, Gallipoli, Beneath Hill 60 etc.). Comment with a fic title, and I'll give you an excerpt.

(Australians)
ashes
claytonmcbride
reunion
rota

(BoB)
beyond the sea
decline and fall
heard so much
lol threesome
mirrorverse rough
new arrival
penk and spina
romance novelist
scenes from the triumph
skinny
the war at home

(Marvel)
stress relief

(MASH)
flowers in your hair
hawkeye and haldane

(The Pacific)
bungle in the jungle
crash and burn
fivemins
impossible things
kisses
sea people
shameless filth
there is no excuse for this
through the years
unfinished business



Not that I'm actually working on any of these right now, mind you - my current projects are a follow-up to the Captain America fic I wrote last year, and a modern-day Pacific AU loosely inspired by GK, with Leckie as an embedded reporter in Iraq. I'm quite excited about getting to work on the second one in particular, although also a little daunted, as while I'm perfectly comfortable using historical wars as backdrops, I feel inexplicably uncomfortable doing the same thing with more recent ones. I don't exactly want to just make shit up out of nowhere either, though, and even a small amount of research has given me a few events which would perfectly as background... so, er, those of you who've written stuff in a modern warfare setting, how do you deal with this?
