vixx secret santa exchange 2015

A while back, I was talking to some friends and this idea came up: Wouldn't it be fun to have a Secret Santa exchange? I'd originally wanted to drag everyone to participate in Yuletide with me but running a VIXX version seemed like a nice alternative.

So I fiddled with AO3 for a great number of hours trying to figure out how it worked and bullied some friends into trialing it out for me. It's still very much in its infancy stage so please bear with all the hiccups, and poke me on Twitter (@slashedsilver) or here if there's anything I may have missed or you have questions about!

But in the meantime, here is the tentative unveiling of...

Pairing: Cha Hakyeon & Lee Jaehwan, featuring the rest of VIXX
Rating: G
Wordcount: 1,350 words in total
Warnings: None
Summary: Jaehwan wants to watch Big Hero 6. If only VIXX felt the same.

Notes: Thanks to neko_90 for the idea, hakyeonnnie for all the canon checking help, my precious tlist for answering my trivia questions, and namikaze_jkc and wykedpanda for the look-through and encouragement! Apologies to John Barth for butchering his quote, but thanks to namikaze_jkc for putting it in my way!

There is a very relevant gifset which lodged itself in my brain a week ago and refused to leave. neko_90 reminded me of it and added, "I want to think that they sneaked out to see the movie at like a midnight session or something." And this fic was born.

prompt post

In honour of -- nothing, it just seemed that there should be an impetus for doing things -- here is a prompt post!

("How do I angle this?" I asked Rai. "I don't know," she replied, entirely unhelpfully.)

The main reason for this is because I haven't written a word since the VIXX Three Sentences Ficathon and it seems like the only way I'm going to write is in a low-pressure situation.

So -- leave me some prompts! Or fill some prompts with me! \o/ (Because it's lonely filling alone and also because alesserrain promised me she'd fill some too.)

Accepting: VIXX prompts only <3

Pairing
: Cha Hakyeon/Lee Hongbin
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 9,200 words in total
Warnings: None
Summary: Hongbin stops the company car to pick up a hooker on a cold street corner. It's the best and worst mistake he's ever made.

Author's Note: This fic is dedicated to alesserrain, fanclub president, because without her support it would have remained a drabble and not the 9k monstrosity you see today. (Please direct all complaints that way.) Thank you for the prompt, the poem, and for assuring me that I had a story to tell ♥

Also for the adorable wykedpanda and thunggyu, who cheered me on and pretended to be excited with every release of a new part, kalopsia, who held my hand and walked through a writing crisis with me, and alphanumerunes, who read this over, typed me hangover poetry, and caught the errant typing mistake.

Written for alesserrain's prompt on the VIXX Three Sentence Ficathon, "I was looking for a hooker when I found you."

recs from the VIXX 3 sentence ficathon

A while ago, I bullied talked alesserrain into hosting a VIXX prompt fest for all the prompts she kept throwing at me. Now, it's up and is a thing of beauty.

I have some personal favourites which I had to write somewhere or lose them forever. You're welcome.

I didn't rec everything or I'd be here until tomorrow morning but there's a lot of awesome there so go check it out! It'll be up until 30 June; prompt and fill some of them today! :D

Pairing
: Gen, Team-fic
Rating: G
Wordcount: 2,650 words
Warnings: None
Summary: VIXX go on a camping trip. It wouldn't be so much of a problem if they'd actually done this before.

Author's Note: So many thanks to my bestest and most awesomest fellow spies Danger Eagle 6 (naladot), Biscuit 007 (kalopsia) and Agent A (darkyulate), who defied time zones and irregular sleeping hours to beta this fic, hold my hand and cheer me on. You have made my writing so many times better and I treasure you all very, very much. Also for Eunice (alphanumerunes), who declared the fic suitable to be eaten by "every man and woman, and child and chicken."

you did well today, too

Title: you did well today, too
Author: slashedsilver
Rating: G
Wordcount: 8,815 words
Fandom: VIXX
Pairing: Gen, Hakyeon-centric, OT6 friendship
Warnings: None
Summary: Maybe it's selfish, but Hakyeon doesn't want to be leader anymore.

Author's Note: So many, many thanks to garowyn, stars_in_love and citrus_sarang, for working through my Hakyeon headcanon with me; the ever amazing Team Spy: Agent Porcupine (horrours) for answering our questions, Agent A (darkyulate), Agent Yuna (mara_ciro), Lone Devil 1 (cassiem312), Danger Eagle 6 (naladot) and Biscuit 007 (kalopsia), for word wars and gentle betaing when I was ready to throw this fic away; jojibear, who brainstormed me out of a hole I'd written myself into; and most especially to alphanumerunes, my biggest cheerleader who patiently held my hand and walked me out of writers' block. This fic would not have been possible without you.

This is probably the fic I've spent the longest amount of time labouring over, because the subject matter (and subject) meant so much to me. I knew at once when I saw the prompts the story that I wanted to tell, and I'm thankful for the chance to tell it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it.

steel heart!AU: now in Russian!

The lovely Ellen Son has started translating steel heart!AU into Russian! :')

It's the very first time any of my work has been translated and she's been nothing but sweet and patient throughout the whole process. When she first approached me with the request, I was bowled over and so, so flattered because -- how much must you love something to translate it slowly into another language?

Ellen, you made my year

So far the first chapter is up :) Available on both AO3 and Ficbook!
