I’m a planner, always have been (which is annoying some of the time), with set goals for most things in life. In regards to writing, I had to look over my crazed (continuously breeding) plot bunny file and sort out what I’ll be working on this year. I knew I had to be realistic and write what stories can actually be done with my limited free-time. Real life derailed my plans in the fall, so writing goals had to be set aside for the last three months. It’s made me a bit irritable, I always feel good and positive when I’m working on writing projects, so knew I needed to decide what stories I absolutely have to do this year.

So here it is, the plan (hopefully realistic) in order:

Title: Can I Kiss You Now?
Fandom: James Bond (Craig Movies)
Relationship(s): James Bond/Q
Genre: Romance, Humor
Warnings: Explicit (perhaps)
Word Count: 10,000-15,000 (estimated)

2016-2017 00Q Reverse Big Bang Challenge
Art by Myztic Myan Moon

Summary Pending Posting! (Shhhh it’s a secret until Saturday).

Title: Crescent City Boogaloo
Author: L.J. MacTavish
Fandom: Original Fiction
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Gay Fiction
Length: 80,000

Two years after the death of his long-time partner, NOPD Detective Oscar “Oz” Chadwick has no interest in romance or finding love again, no interest at all in opening his heart to another. Only his job, friends, and his saucy bit of good’s sister keep him focused to carry on despite his grief.

His job as a homicide detective for the New Orleans Police Department is always a good distraction, and Oz is on the hunt for a ritualistic serial killer causing chaos during the Carnival season.

With the FBI horning in on his case, his Police Commander riding him like Seabiscuit to solve it, and a one-night stand haunting him, in the form of FBI Special Agent, Jacques Verret. Oz must catch a killer stalking The Big Easy, all the while avoiding any additional romantic entanglements. You can read the first chapter here.

Title: Hunted
Fandom: Criminal Minds
Relationship(s): Spencer Reid/Aaron Hotchner
Genre: Suspense, angst, romance
Warnings: Canon-level Violence, Explicit sex
Word Count: 20,000-25,000

Criminal Minds Bang 2017 Challenge

The BAU is on the hunt for thirteen serial killers after a coordinated mass prison break. Little do they know one of the thirteen is after one of their own.

Title: The Descendant
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Relationship (s): Ansgarus Mauritius Pastorem/Ronon Dex; John Sheppard/Rodney McKay; OMCs OMFs
Genre: Romantic suspense and adventure
Warnings: Canon-level violence, explicit sex
Word Count: 100,000 (estimated)

July 2017: Battle of the Five Fandoms on Rough Trade

An Ancient warship finds Atlantis and the crew consists of direct descendants. A small contingent that has been in hiding for millennia. They can no longer sustain their population without inbreeding and had heard rumors of the Earth colonists on Atlantis. The captain is a young man, a descendant of Janus, brilliant and beautiful. Many of the crew have already ascended, but the Descendants that are left are not done living and fighting the creation of their ancestors.

Title: Obsessed
Fandom: Merlin (TV)
Relationship(s): Merlin/Arthur Pendragon
Genre: Romantic suspense
Warnings: Canon-level violence, explicit sex
Word Count: 20,000-25,000

A visiting noble shows a sexual interest in Merlin.

Title: Perfect Illusion
Fandom: James Bond (Skyfall, SPECTRE)
Relationship(s): James Bond/Q
Genre: Romantic suspense
Warnings: Canon-level violence, explicit sex
Word Count: 60,000 (estimated)

Inspired by London Spy

James Bond meets a young man sitting on a bench by the Thames. They eventually become lovers though Edwin (aka future Q) doesn’t know James is MI6. Edwin is a librarian and underground hacker. James goes missing and Edwin works to find him with the help of his hacker friends and perhaps a burly former Royal Marine neighbor, save him.

In between the larger projects, I hope to get some more shorts completed in the fandom’s of James Bond (Craig Movies), London Spy, Merlin (TV), Sherlock (BBC), Star Trek (AOS), and Stargate Atlantis.

Best, The Nut.

I have a number of stories confirmed for the rest of 2016 and a number of plot bunnies in mind for 2017. The bunnies were getting out of hand, so I felt I needed to address my writing schedule.

Confirmed stories for 2016 include:

Title: Divergence (Part 3 of the Transference Series)
Fandom: Criminal Minds (Sentinel Fusion)
Relationship(s):Spencer Reid/Aaron Hotchner
Genre: Romantic suspense, angst
Word Count: 35,000 (estimated)

In the midst of a serial killer investigation, Spencer and Aron’s relationship is called into question by their superiors at the FBI. With Spencer’s Transcendental powers increasing at a frightening rate, can he and Aaron keep their bond and Spencer’s abilities a secret? Or will they be forced apart to preserve their union?

A/N: I got a little behind schedule with my obsession in fully plotting this story out prior to writing. The first time since I started to write last year that I’ve been able to have a completed plot. I anticipate posting this story by the end of August 2016.

Title: The Descendant
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis (Post-Season Five)
Relationship(s): John Sheppard/Rodney McKay, Ansgarus Mauritius Pastorem (OMC)/Ronan Dex
Genre: Romantic suspense, humor
Word Count: 100,000 (estimated)

An Ancient warship finds Atlantis and the crew consists of the direct descendants of the Alterans. A small contingent that has been in hiding for millennia. They can no longer sustain their population without inbreeding and had heard rumors of the Earth colonists on Atlantis. The captain is a young man, a descendant of Janus, brilliant and beautiful. Many of the crew have already ascended, but the Descendants that are left are not done living and fighting the creation of their ancestors.

A/N: This will be the first story in the scifi genre I’ve attempted, as well as the longest story I have planned. I’ve been a long-time SGA fan, so looking forward to writing some McShep love this year, as well as creating an interesting Original Character. I anticipate starting to post the story in December 2016.

Those are the two confirmed stories I’ll be working on throughout the summer and fall. Of course, my 00Q (James Bond/Q) obsession knows no bounds, so I hope I’ll have time to get a few shorter stories done in that fandom before the end of the year.

Confirmed stories for 2017 include:

Title: (untitled)
Fandom: James Bond (Skyfall, Spectre)
Relationship(s): 00Q (James Bond/Q)
Genre: Romantic suspense, angst
Word Count: 60,000-80,000 (estimated)

After Skyfall James Bond is at loose ends physically and emotionally with the death of M. He meets a young man sitting on a bench by the Thames and they eventually become lovers. Edwin is all that James could want in a lover, smart, sarcastic, irascible, and inherently kindhearted. Of course, Edwin doesn’t know his boyfriend works for MI6. When James goes missing, Edwin will have to find out who his lover of ten months really is and with the help of his friends, (and perhaps a burly former Royal Marine neighbor) save him.

This plot bunny has evolved a bit since it bit me on the ass after watching London Spy in the fall of 2015. So a London Spyesq 00Q story was born. This will probably be a SPECTRE-AU story. This project will be the first I work on in 2017, so I hope to have it posted sometime in March or April. And don’t worry folks, Q will eventually become Q!

Title: Hunted
Fandom: Criminal Minds
Relationship(s): Spencer Reid/Aaron Hotchner
Genre: Romantic suspense, angst
Word Count: 50,000 (estimated)

The BAU is on the hunt for thirteen serial killers after a coordinated mass prison break. Little do they know one of the thirteen is after one of their own. With one man down, can the BAU save their friend and team member, Spencer Reid from an obsessed killer? Will Hotch lose the man he loves? The man who doesn’t know Aaron’s loved him for a very long time?

A/N: This bunny just whacked me upside this head this week, but I truly like the premise, so it’s a definite on my writing schedule for 2017. No estimated date of completion yet, but most like summer or early fall.

As for the rest of 2017, I would like to write at least one Sherlock (BBC) story and try my hand at a Star Trek (AOS) short story. Of course, there’s a few smaller 00Q’s on my list as well.

I’m looking forward to trying my hand at some longer stories and new fandoms in the coming months.

Best, The Nut.
