I promise on a stack of Jack's I'll finish my J/D ficathon fic tomorrow. I got a heap of it written at work today (just don't tell my boss), and I just have to type it in. Also got a bit of the sex written (gimmie a "Yay!!" for that! First sex scene eva!).

My biggest problem with it is Jack and Daniel won't shut up. They keep trading quips instead of kisses. And every now and then Jack gets a rash of giddiness that I'm not happy with, but I don't seem to be able to stop him.

And Daniel... what can I say about Daniel, other than the boy has so much teen angst about him you know that he's got "The Bell Jar" under one arm and "Catcher In The Rye" under the other. And it's a strong possibility he's got more shades of black in his wardrobe than there are days in the year.

So tomorrow I show the guys who is boss of this fic. Or they show me.

They're gonna make toast outta me. groan.

And then there's the matter of a title. I have a few ideas, but I don't think they suit the fic. I hate titles. If anyone has a spare title just hanging around the house, stealing the last of your coffee and choccie biscuits, send it my way. I promise to give it a good home.

So-called sex scenes

Lassie, I know exactly what you mean. Me, I've been trying to get Chris and Ezra to have sex for pages. Literally. My story is 35k worth of so-called sex scene...so far. Like you, I'm worrying if anyone will ever read it all -- or maybe just skip to the 'climax' if I'm lucky. Ezra keeps talking and even Chris is chipping in.

So far I've experienced two versions or writerly dead stop: one the more common 'write yourself into a dramatic corner' one; and the other the more rare 'right like a speeding train until you literally run out of puff and the story just looks at you'. Thankfully the first one was solved with a paragraph cull and the second when I remembered that post-coital is about the only time Ezra is guaranteed a cuddle and come hell or high water (but not literally;) he's going to make sure he gets one!

As for titles, I've actually been stealing mine from Mark Twain's 'Roughing It' -- but I can suggest this title machine:

I doubt it will come up with exactly what you need but pop in a few words that feel right for you fic and see what happens. :-)
