So, uh.

*Awkward silence.*

... Hi.

Have you ever felt so bad for updating you didn't update? Yeeeeeeah.

Excuses in TL;DR form: RL sucks and comes first, I'm just going to write as it comes. Updates are going to be sparse at best, but I'll do what I can.

Also, I've come to realise there is a lot of suckage about this story but I'm guessing that sucking and updating is better than not updating at all, so we'll see. D:

Title: Missing Time, by umbersong.
Word Count: 2.4Kish.
Rating: R
Chapters: Here.
Genre: Romance/Family
Warning: More swearing & fade-to-black dubcon.
Summary: After a stunt gone wrong puts one of Jim's daughters in danger, he comes face-to-face with the Vulcan he split up with twelve years ago in one of the most awkward possible circumstances. When he discovers the hard way that telepathic bonds don't die easily, it all goes to hell from there.
Prompt: From here:
Kirk/Spock - The Parent Trap (Yes, The motherfucking Parent Trap!)
Kirk and Spock have twins, but end up splitting up while they are still newborns, so they decide each keeps one of the twins so they'll never have to see each other again. Cut to 12 years later, they send the twins to the same intergalactic camp where they meet and decide to switch places to get their dads back together.


There was nothing sexy about pon farr, Jim knew that much.Collapse )

Is umbersong posting fic?

Nope.

*Ducks flying tomatoes*

*Hides for a few minutes*

*Emerges carefully*

No excuses here aside from the typical "RL stuff lulz"; I haven't been writing at all. This is just being posted to let you guys know I haven't forgotten! I will finish this fic, it'll just be a while in coming. I can't even give a time frame.

I want to start writing again, and I ask you writers who have me friended: what do you do when the ideas flat out don't come, when you write a sentence and it feels like you're trying to pass a camel through a needle? When everything feels so dry?

I've been reading - fanfic, mostly, and the occasional actual book. It doesn't do much for me. I've had a long break from writing and I'd like to get back to it. It's just a bit difficult.

I'm really sorry how updates just suddenly dropped off the face of the earth like that.
 
I don't have an excuse. It's not real life - it's a shift in my thinking. What I mean is that since the last update I've started.. huh, how do I say this without looking totally insane? There's been a shift in how I work and think and while I'm a lot happier for it, updates have lagged as a result. EVERYTHING has pretty much lagged as a result, it's like my brain shut down and restarted and everything's still kicking in. I haven't been writing at all since, where I used to write a lot.

Do know that I WILL finish this story, it will just take a while. I have been playing with the most recent chapter, it's just not ready yet.

And, you guys are going to hate me, but updates are going to continue to be sparse until December at the least, 'cause November is NaNoWriMo. :( 

Really, really sorry. *Hugs*

I'm really sorry that this update is so late, but this chapter was hell on a stick to write until I decided "Stuff it, I'm skipping to [insert event at the end of this chapter] because it's not like anything else happens between now and then."

Uh. Some of you may hate my guts for what happens there.

Again, sorry this is so late - I'm at least 2K words into the next chapter so hopefully that'll be up at the usual time, if not within the week. :) Thanks for being patient.

Also, LJ's pissed that this entry is too big, so I cut it into two parts. Bugger.

Title: Missing Time, by [info]umbersong

Word Count: 6289 total

Rating: This is where it gets PG-13. Uh, after some thought, I'll probably have to up the rating of the next chapter at least.

Chapters: Here.

Genre: Romance/Family

Warning: Bones after being woken up in the middle of the night, confrontations, Jim-heart attack, and... intense swearing towards the end. (Personally, I think Jim was being mild.)

Summary: After a stunt gone wrong puts one of Jim's daughters in danger, he comes face-to-face with the Vulcan he split up with twelve years ago in one of the most awkward possible circumstances. When he discovers the hard way that telepathic bonds don't die easily, it all goes to hell from there.

Cut to 12 years later, they send the twins to the same intergalactic camp where they meet and decide to switch places to get their dads back together.

After the police had gone, the men clustered about the kitchen.Collapse ) Chapter 7B.


Skipped updates. D:
Bones - Pretty Colours
umbersong
Apologies for the skipped update. I don't have any excuses except that I've been lazy and unmotivated, but I'm getting my butt back into gear and there'll be an update this weekend. :)

(Actually, honestly - I have this period in all of my fics where the enthusiasm honeymoon and slew of ideas run out just at the beginning of the middle. I know how this fic ends, I just don't know what happens now. Which I've been fixing the last couple of days. Not to mention, I hate it when my muse drops anvils on me and doesn't tell me what certain things I have to slip in do later, but I'll have to trust the bastard.)

For those who are interested, in a week or two I will begin to post a cyberpunk AU. I'll post a hook when I can be bothered.

(I should probably warn you guys that NaNoWriMo is coming which means there will be no updates in November, but I'll try post more towards the end of October to make up for it. Or I'll edit ahead of time - actually, that's what I'll do, I'll see about making a buffer so I can just post whenever.

I'll post again closer to the time in case people forget.)

Thanks, peeps.

So, I filled this prompt from the kinkmeme and 'cause I like being able to find all my fic I put it here.

5 times the penguin, that was invented in Russia, interrupted sex and the 1 time it didn't.

Missing Time 6/?
Bones - Pretty Colours

So, in the last chapter I accidentally put in something which really shouldn't have been there (God knows why, maybe I was sleep deprived or something) and now I'm kind of following my muse blindly in the hope of fixing it and hoping to god I don't screw this up. Oops. You know what I really hate? Not realising I have mistakes until after I put it up. Shit. Oh well, I know how to fix THIS one up in the next one, at least.
