May Writing Goals Report, June Writing Goals
rsadelle
Report on May:
  • Do some work on the Bollig/Monahan crossdressing fic every day except Thursdays until it's done. Maybe edit/post it. (I'm less uncertain about this than the mpreg, so it should be easier to edit.) - Check!

  • After the crossdressing fic is done, pick something else to work on every day except Thursdays. Possibly the three-pov AGally coming out story. - Sort of. Mostly I've been writing whatever I feel like, and I might have lost interest in the three-pov story.

  • Finish editing/post the AGally/Prusty mpreg. - Check!

  • Write miscellaneous snippets as inspired. - Check!

  • Say positive things on Twitter. - Mostly.

Fic: Let you put your hands on me (Hockey, Brandon Bollig/Sean Monahan, 15800 words, Explicit) 1/2
rsadelle
Summary:Sean's never quite gotten excited about sex the way other people seem to. That lasts from the time he first starts discovering sex until he's twenty and in his sophomore season in the NHL.

Content Notes: This story contains crossdressing, spanking, teacher-student role play, and characters using the term "slutty" to refer to sexually active young women.

Notes: Brandon Bollig really did tell the Flames cameras about dressing up as a cheerleader for Halloween. Title from Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream." Thanks to Lake for consulting and everyone on Twitter who answered various questions.

Summary: Brandon is not pleased that (a) Alex was gone when he woke up in the morning or (b) that he’s pregnant when no one in his family has ever been a carrier.

Notes: Title from Mumford & Sons' "Timshel." Many thanks to Lake for helping me make this story better, and thanks to everyone who answered miscellaneous questions on Twitter.

Hockey Wives: Season 1, Episode 8
rsadelle
This is the last episode of the season. Nicole Brown doesn't appear in it at all. The show spends some time with Noureen DeWulf at home. The other six women converge on Toronto for an event for Tiffany and George Parros's clothing lines. What made this episode stand out from the others is how much it really is focused on the women, with only a few appearances from their partners.

Recap/Review/CommentaryCollapse )

Hockey Wives: Season 1, Episode 7
rsadelle
This episode was a little more freeform than the last one. We saw a few women together, but for the most part, this episode was focused on women and their partners as Christmas approaches. My favorite reviewers from The National Post were entertaining again this week, although I didn't directly connect any of their points to the rest of this entry. I'm will warn you up front that most of this entry is about Brandon Prust and Maripier Morin, and I didn't think much of either of them or their relationship skills.

Hockey Wives: Season 1, Episode 6
rsadelle
This episode's structure was much more like the first episode than the last few. The episode centers on a launch party for the new social networking aspect of Brijet Whitney's hockey wives resource website and we follow everyone around as they converge on LA for the party.

Recap/Review/CommentaryCollapse )

Hockey Wives: Season 1, Episode 5
rsadelle
In a comment on last week's post, secretsolitaire said, "I found this episode a little more boring than some of the others -- not sure why exactly." I enjoyed last week's episode, but this week's is where I started to lose interest, to the point that I kept bringing up the controls on my video player to see if I was close to the end yet. I'm not sure what made this episode less interesting to me than the others.

As seems to be the pattern now, this week's episode follows five of the women around - Nicole Brown, Kodette LaBarbera, Emilie Blum, Tiffany Parros, and Maripier Morin - including a planned trip for two of them - Maripier and Tiffany - to spend time together.

Recap/Review/CommentaryCollapse )

Hockey Wives: Season 1, Episode 4
rsadelle
This episode continued on with following women around without too much (obvious) staging of the action. This week's ep focused on Noureen DeWulf, Tiffany Parros, Brijet Whitney, and Maripier Morin. We also see a lot of Kodette LaBarbera, but most of her time is spent with Tiffany and/or Brijet, so I've put her scenes in with my comments on the two of them.

Content note: Tiffany uses a gendered slur. The show beeps it out, but I've reproduced it here as part of a quote from her.

Recap/Review/CommentaryCollapse )

Hockey Wives: Season 1, Episode 3
rsadelle
The structure of this show is a little odd. When the first episode profiled six of the women, I expected the second ep to profile the other four. Instead it continued to follow some of the women from the first ep and introduced us to two more. Surely, I thought, the third ep would profile the last two women. It did not; instead we followed five of the women we've already met. The feel of this episode was different too. In place of formulaic introductions and staged hangouts, we followed Nicole Brown to her kids' hockey and soccer practices, Noureen DeWulf to work and to an ultrasound appointment, Tiffany Parros to a househunting trip, Martine Forget to a modeling shoot, and Emilie Blum to an Iowa Wild game. In nearly every case, we also saw them connect with female friends who aren't themselves being profiled by the show. I thought the change in focus helped flesh out the portrayal of all five of the women.

Hockey Wives: Season 1, Episode 2
rsadelle
Content note: this episode included a discussion about a modeling career, with all the beauty standards and weight talk that implies, and I've repeated some of those comments in this post. You can skip the two paragraphs about Martine if you want to skip that part and only read the rest of the entry.

WIP Amnesty: girl!AGally/Prusty hooking up and clothes sharing (2100 words, Mature)
rsadelle
The idea behind this is that Alex and Brandon hook up off and on. They don't talk about it, and they don't tell anyone about it, but Alex keeps borrowing Brandon's clothes. I only wrote some of the snippets of this story.

WIP Amnesty: AGally/Prusty Gallys fake dating (2000 words, Teen)
rsadelle
I wanted a fake dating story where the people who were fake dating were not the end game pairing. Like so many things, I wrote bits of this into emails to lakeeffectgirl, but never wrote the parts in the middle.
