Brief update: Still writing in The Musketeers fandom.

Aramis still hot:
aramis smouldering

Title: Biomechanical Recordings [experimental, no subtitles]
Author: Donna Immaculata
Rating: Explicit
Pairing: Aramis/Athos
Word count: 2,807
Summary/Notes: A hastily written PWP, because breathtaken, etoiledemer and mellyflori enabled me evilly, like the evil enableresses that they are, and demanded I write some kinky porn with feelings. So there we are.
Part of a projected but not-as-yet written modern AU, where they are all indie filmmakers in contemporary Berlin. Expect pretentious titles and popcultural references.

Title: In Corpore Sano
Author: Donna Immaculata
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Aramis, Athos, Porthos (Trois Mousquetaires)
Additional Tags: BROT3, Friendship, Hurt/Comfort, Shaving, Bathing/Washing, Linen’s Carnal Value
Summary: Aramis thinks he has to deal with the aftermath of Marsac’s death alone. Athos and Porthos disagree.
Notes: This is an extended scene of the last chapter of Ars Moriendi, but can be read as a stand-alone. It didn't fit the themes or the atmosphere of Ars Moriendi, which is why I wrote it as a separate fic.
I've finished my current Musketeers WIP. It's an attempt at a baroque ghost story and actually one of my favourite pieces of my own writing. I did proper historical research, incorporated literary and philosophical concepts of the baroque period, threw a buttload of psychological horror at Aramis, and didn't write any gratuitous porn. So yay.

Title: Ars Moriendi on AO3
Author: Donna Immaculata
Rating: Mature for disturbing themes
Characters: Aramis, Athos, Porthos, d'Artagnan; with a supporting cast of war refugees, honnêtes gens, Jesuits and one undead soldier, slightly soiled
Word count: 25,187
Summary: In the wake of Marsac's burial, Aramis doesn't sleep.
Notes: Inspired by the idea I’ve seen pop up in several places that Marsac would come back as a zombie, as evidenced by Aramis leaving the sword stuck in his grave for him. Despite the silly-sounding premise, this is not a crack fic - quite the contrary, actually.
Inspired by The Dying of the Light by Cunien

Title: Angel Lust

Pairing: Aramis/d'Artagnan

Additional tags: Intercrural Sex, PWP, Erotic Asphyxiation
Summary: An unrepentant PWP and quickie born out of a how-on-earth-did-we-get-here? conversation with monamemonetoile about d'Artagnan escaping a hanging and getting shagged by Aramis against a tree. With the noose still around his neck.

Well, at least it's not porn this time. It's angst and horror instead, which I inflict on Aramis because I love him.

So does anyone remember, back in the days when one was getting into the Harry Potter fandom and thought, naively, that all one would do would be reading some nice fics and perhaps writing some sweet Sirius/Remus, certainly none of that weird kinky stuff, thankyouverymuch, and then, six or twelve months later, one would find oneself at the PC (it was the dark ages) at 3am writing Hagrid/Giant Squid porn?

Yeah, that's kinda how I feel now.

I have not intended to get sucked into a new fandom, certainly not one where the main attraction of the source material is the hawtness of one of the leads, but here I am, writing The Musketeers porn like there's no tomorrow. How did that happen? I didn't even enjoy the show all that much.

And as if that wasn't enough, I am also being sucked into the Tumblr fraction of the fandom even as we speak, because I got a Tumblr two weeks ago (as donnaimmaculata, because that's my fannish identity and I stick with it) to look at pretty pictures, and have already been forced to get involved. Give me two more days, and I'll be reblogging Aramis gifs.

Because this is Aramis:
They used all the cheapest tricks in the book to make him alluring. I see through these tricks with my hands tied behind my back, and yet they don't bother me. At all.

And so he gets all the porn. And the latest piece of porn is one of my most porniest yet. It is actually a character study, really, it is. A character study through the medium of porn.

Title: The Foe in Sight
Author: Donna Immaculata
Fandom: The Musketeers
Rating: Explicit/NC-17
Threesome M/F/F: Aramis/Milady/Ninon de Larroque

Summary: Ninon takes what she desires, Madame de la Chapelle reveals hidden depths and Aramis is loving every second of it.

So, I gave in and got myself a Tumblr. I'm donnaimmaculata there as well, because this is my preferred fannish identity on the Internets. Any of you available to be followed? I'm not sure if I will use the account actively, but I'd like to be able to look at pretty pictures. Oh, and if anyone has any tips as to tumblrs that one should follow, let me know.

Also, I wrote fic again. Doctor Who (because Ten is hot) and The Musketeers (because Aramis is hot). Yep, these are my fic-writing standards.

Title: the boy without a name was silent

Fandom: Doctor Who
Prompt: #14 - Author, in the Sanatorium, with an umbrella, in a mobile library
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Jack/Tenth Doctor
Word count: 500
Spoilers/warnings: none
Summary: All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Told in five drabbles of 100 words each.

Title: A Good Soldier
Author: Donna Immaculata
Fandom: The Musketeers
Rating: NC-17/Explicit
Pairing: Aramis/Tréville
Word count: 4448
Spoilers: for episode 4
Summary/Notes: Written as answer to deacertes' prompt: I have this idea that Aramis doesn't really know what to do with himself after laying Marsac to rest. He trudges around in the rain for hours before finding himself back in Treville's office staring at the bloodstains on the floor. Which is where Treville finds him... I like my Treville toppy and caring

The thing got bloody long, because they just wouldn't stop angsting. But I managed to make them do sex in the end.

A Good Soldier on AO3

And just to reiterate: This is the sole reason I'm writing in The Musketeers fandom at all:

Ah, fuck it. Here I am, happily posting fills for the bbcmusketeers kinkmeme anonymously, because it's more fun that way, and then I realise that I can't figure out how to post the next chapter in an anonymously posted work anonymously. And so I'm forced to reveal my name.

I'm currently amusing myself writing The Musketeers fics, and they're all Aramis-centric, because Aramis is the only reason I watched that show. He is very, very hot. I don’t care about any of the other characters (well, the King is deeply amusing), and I don’t care about the actor who plays Aramis or him in any other roles, but Aramis? I totally would, 17th century washing habits, syphilis and all.

Well, I’d give him a bath first and explain latex condoms, but then I would. Totally.


Title: Only Fools Rush In
Author: Donna Immaculata
Rating: Explicit
Pairing: Aramis/d'Artagnan
Word count: 4516
Warnings: PWP, but a fluffy one
Summary: D'Artagnan considers himself pretty well experienced for his age. But then Aramis happens along, and it blows his mind.
Notes: Written for the kinkmeme, for the following prompt:

D'Artagnan considers himself pretty well experienced for his age, he's slept with a whole three people and one of them was a married woman (one was also an assassin but w/e he didn't know that at the time).

Except then he somehow ends up sleeping with Aramis (casual offer? part of OT4? love confession? Your call), and it blows his mind. It isn't just that Aramis knows how to do things that d'Artagnan hasn't even heard of, he's so assured and thorough and communicative and really, really dedicated to finding out exactly what works for his partner.

I just want d'Artagnan completely out of his mind with pleasure, and Aramis delighted at how responsive and appreciative he is.

There's, um, one more fic, but it's disturbed me so much that I'm keeping it anonymous for a while longer. Perhaps one day I will reveal that it's sprung from my clearly diseased brain.

So, I've been wondering: is it worth getting a Tumblr account? Is that where fandom is taking place these days and where everyone has wandered off to? It's time to admit I'm totally out of the loop.

On plus side: I've managed to write fic in a new fandom. I'm not getting too excited about it, because I know myself and know that it won't last, but for the time being I'm indulging in a very nostalgic sort of crush:

He does look very lickable, doesn't he?

Look, I don't think that The Musketeers is a brilliant show. In fact, I got bored halfway through and stopped watching - stunning visuals notwithstanding - but then I gave it a chance, watched it all in a marathon session and decided to revive a crush from 30 years ago, when Aramis used to look like this:

old school

Yeah, the new version is better. My ten-year-old self is weeping for the missed chance. Seriously, my ten-year-old self would so have loved to have had the new revamped Aramis to perv over. He has been specifically designed to appeal to my ten-year-old self's (and teenage self's) aesthetic requirements. And while my present-day self appreciates the visuals, it is not entirely overwhelmed by them. It's too sad.

But that didn't stop me from writing porn for him. And angst. Well, the angst is Marsac's, because Marsac is The Musketeers' verse's Sirius Black (which makes Aramis Remus Lupin, which explains a lot).

Title: Dance Macabre
Author: Donna Immaculata
Rating: Mature
Pairing: Aramis/Marsac
Word count: 4718
Warnings: Angst, Unhealthy Coping Mechanisms, Hand Jobs, Mutual Masturbation, PTSD, Miscommunication, Catholic Guilt, Death Wish

HP Beholder, my favourite HP fic exchange ever, is over for good. I'm incredibly glad I decided to participate after all. I did dither for a while and, back in February, wrote: Now: do I sign up for this year's HP Beholder or not? It might give me the opportunity to write a sweet tale of underloved, underappreciated souls finding love. But knowing me, I would only end up writing a painful and awkward encounter between two unpleasant people who learn nothing from that experience.

Well, quite. I ended up writing an unpleasant encounter between two people, one of whom mercifully did learn something from it. Still, the whole thing did turn out pretty nasty:

Recipient: [ profile] _hannelore
Author/Artist: [ profile] donnaimmaculata
Title: By Theft or Force
Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Dolores Umbridge/Arabella Figg
Word Count: 7000
Medium: Fic
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): Dolores Umbridge and all that this entails, i.e. *dub-con, implied use of date-rape drugs, manipulation, incredibly twee and sickening dirty talk*
Summary: The Muggle-born Registration Commission has decreed that magical powers stolen by Muggle-borns are to be retrieved and distributed among Squibs. Arabella finds herself on top of the list.
Author's/Artist's Notes: I hope you don’t mind the lack of romance, Hannelore! I did include the cats, though, to balance out the unpleasantness. I also must apologise for the language, it is unbearably cutesy. Dolores has infected my brain.
The [ profile] wintercompanion exchange reveals are up, and I wrote a Ten/Jack fic for the hardworking, Jack-loving mod [ profile] trobadora

Title: Down Memory Lane
Author: [ profile] donnaimmaculata
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Jack/Tenth Doctor
Warnings: blatant plot devices (aka “force field” and “disappeared TARDIS”)
Summary: Jack remembers exactly how he met the Doctor. Then, timey-wimeyness happens.
Notes: The plot, such as it is, references Heribert Illig’s phantom time hypothesis, which postulates that 300 years of history have been made up, and the Paderborn Epic. The Time Agents in this scenario appear to be the roundworld equivalent of the History Monks. Make of this what you will.
Many, many thanks to [ profile] fluffyllama for the beta and for – very appropriately – fixing my tenses!

The Porn Battle is on over at Dreamwidth, and I went and wrote a pairing that I actively dislike. This is new. Until now, I've written pairings that I like, and I've written pairings that I was curious about and wanted to try out, and I've written pairings that I'm indifferent about, but never one that I abhor.

Title: I was made for loving you, baby
Fandom: Doctor Who
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Doctor 10.2/Rose Tyler
Summary: Rose got what she wanted.
Word count: 2200
1. Written for the Porn Battle (The Ides of Porn) for the following prompts: Doctor 10.2/Rose Tyler, Forever, sleeping in, on her knees, fantasy, need, engagement ring
2. Despite the title and the prompts, this is not a happy tale. It's an attempt to explore the mindboggling dysfunctionality of that pairing through the medium of sex. Because - why not?

I was made for loving you, baby on AO3.

Now: do I sign up for this year's HP Beholder or not? It might give me the opportunity to write a sweet tale of underloved, underappreciated souls finding love. But knowing me, I would only end up writing a painful and awkward encounter between two unpleasant people who learn nothing from that experience.
So, David Tennant, god bless him, continues to provide fannish inspiration. This is an idea that I've been toying with ever since I first watched Broadchurch last year. There are just so many parallels to Blackpool, I've never believed that DT has not realised it. Hence, it made perfect sense to be used for my metafiction/friends-to-lovers fic for the trope bingo challenge.

Title: Lessons Learned - A Best Practice Guide to Broadchurch
Author: Donna Immaculata
Fandom: Blackpool/Broadchurch crossover
Summary: The Blackpool vs. Broadchurch face-off, or: Lessons DI Hardy should have remembered from a previous life. Oh, if only he'd been a time traveller!
Rating: PG-13
Genre: crossover, picspam, meta

Pic count: 45

My second contribution to the [ profile] lupin_snape exchange has been posted. The prompt was:

Not established relationship. R or NC-17. After the death of Dumbledore, R searches for S and for answers. He finds him in hiding and they argue, perhaps even fight, but end up in bed. Tenderness, not hate sex, comforting of mutual pain. In the morning, they must go their separate ways. Tone: bittersweet

A straightforward, old-fashioned hurt/comfort fic:

Title: But the Loom of Life Never Stops
Author: Donna Immaculata
Summary: After the death of Dumbledore, Remus tracks down Severus in hiding.
Rating: NC-17
Genre: angst, hurt/comfort
Word count: 8781
Notes: Title lifted from Henry Ward Beecher's Life Thoughts: "We sleep, but the loom of life never stops; and the pattern which was weaving when the sun went down is weaving when it comes up tomorrow."

But the Loom of Life Never Stops

My Remus, btw, has always looked like this - looong before David Tennant entered our lives and made them brighter:

Single Father 1x02[(023726)16-00-52]

Very thin, with a thin face and good hair that falls into his eyes (canon!), in his late 30s and not too old looking, definitely no moustache. No scars, either, because Harry would have commented on them. I will never forgive the films for what they did to Remus. David Tennant in the scene pictured above made me instantly think of Remus Lupin; there's a certain loneliness and melancholia that fits him well.
Thanks to my re-discovered lust for David Tennant, I actually wrote a Doctor Who fic, pinch-hitting for the [ profile] public_call exchange. It was fun, the story totally ran away with me, and I wrote almost 9000 words in bit more than two days. And all that just because David Tennant was so incredibly hot as the Doctor.

And because I had just finished reading The Three Musketeers when I wrote the fic, I made Ten and Martha go to 17h century Paris:

Title: Memento Mori
Author: Donna Immaculata
Recipient: subjunctive
Pairing: Tenth Doctor/Martha Jones
Rating: R/Mature
Word count: 8264
Warnings: none
Summary: The 17th century is less romantic than Martha thought.

Memento Mori
Look, I wrote fic! I'm very proud: I hadn't written anything in months, and in the next few weeks I've got two more fics coming up.

This one was written for the Snupin Santa Multimedia Holiday Fest over at [ profile] lupin_snape, answering the following prompt:

NC-17. A challenge for you, dear writer! I would like what amounts to nearly a complete monologue. One is talking to the other - doesn't matter which - seducing him. Can be day or night, in bed or in the forest, (over the phone??) established relationship or no. Set the scene through the monologue, though bits of information are allowed. Little bits. Some speech by the other is allowed, but as little as possible. Noises are fine, however. ;) Perhaps he's gagged? You tell me. Can be kinky or not, but this is a consensual situation. Tone: HOT

Title: Knight in Sour Armour
Author: Donna Immaculata
Rating: R
Word count: 1894
Pairing: Snape/Lupin
Disclaimer: Not my characters, I just take them out to play
Summary: After rescuing him from the Department of Mysteries, Snape brings Lupin home and puts him to bed.
Notes: A writing experiment: monologue-only fic is tricky, but it was an interesting exercise.

Knight in Sour Armour
It turns out, [ profile] hp_halloween, the Halloween-themed gift exchange, is quite a demanding fest: 70 double-drabbles, all posted on one day, ranging from fluffy rom-com to chilling horror tales... I have finally managed to read my way through this year's batch, and here are some of my favourites:

HP Halloween drabbles )

I wrote A Thinking Cap for [ profile] bonfoi, whose pairing requests included the Sorting Hat/Hogwarts Castle. How could I resist?

The moment I decided to give this pairing a go, I knew I would have to write it in verse form, because the Sorting Hat would sing his love to the Castle. So the challenge was to write a poem in exactly 200 words. And the amazing thing was: it worked. As I wrote what I thought was the rough draft, I fully expected I would have to do a lot of editing afterwards. However, it turned out I had hit the word count almost exactly on the first try - the draft had 199 words. All I had to do was change "mind-reading" to "mind reading", and I hit my target. I've no idea how that happened! It did please me immensely, I can tell you.
In fannish news, shiny new fandom is still shiny. I wrote six Hornblower fics since October. This makes it officially my second most proficient fandom after Harry Potter.

Apparently, all it took to get me hooked were pretty navyboys

and being angsty.

And so there's more navyboy porn:

TITLE: Fearless
AUTHOR: Donna Immaculata
PAIRING: Horatio/Archie
DISCLAIMER: These are not my characters. I just take them out to play.
SUMMARY: The morning after; Archie angsts and Horatio is speechless.
NOTES: For [ profile] eglantine_br, who asked for a “second-time” fic. Consider it a birthday present. I didn’t know it was your birthday today until I saw [ profile] anteros_lmc’s post, but I have planned to post it today anyway and am now very pleased with my timing.

In other seafaring news: I watched Treasure Island with a couple of friends last week, and we had a blast. I can't say whether it's a good show, but it's got Eddie Izzard as a very charismatic Long John Silver - and that's all it takes to make me happy.

Image Hosted by

There's also some serious costume porn going on, Frodo goes mad and Gene Hunt is as masterful as ever.

Treasure Island is costume porn. )

And after we had watched Treasure Island, one of my co-watchers outed herself as a fan of Age of Sail kind of movies. And so I told them about that one show I watched, with ships and battles and naval officers, and if all goes well, we'll be watching Hornblower together one of these days. They will totally pick up on the slash vibes. It will be brilliant.

This post has been brought to you by my period drama fetish that I discussed at length before.
TITLE: Grounded
AUTHOR: Donna Immaculata
RATING: NC-17 for boyloving
PAIRING: Horatio/Archie
DISCLAIMER: These are not my characters. I just take them out to play.
SUMMARY: After the fiasco that was The Wrong War, Horatio feels like he has failed everyone. Archie helps.
NOTES: Porn. And angst. Porn and angst. In fact, an exploration of how many different angst factors can be crammed into one fic. I had all the porny bits written up for days when I tried to fill in the gaps with a semblance of plot, and I somehow went overboard on the angst. Also, hurt/comfort.

Set after The Frogs and Lobsters.

Sequel to Breathless

To my great surprise, I've finally managed to write more fic. I'm sure all those of you who have written several pieces for Yuletide alone are very impressed.

TITLE: Breathless
AUTHOR: Donna Immaculata
PAIRING: Horatio/Archie
DISCLAIMER: These are not my characters. I just take them out to play.
SUMMARY: Horatio and Archie are back in their cell in El Ferrol and talk about girls. Touching ensues.
NOTES: One line is lifted straight from Lucy Maud Montgomery, because it's fitting and beautiful.


And in other fandom news, I have managed to get myself an Archive of our Own account. So yay.
