Illustrationfish_echo  is, that's who. 

Back in Halloween she dressed up as Delirium-Who-Was-Once-Delight, in particular, the design from my icon. 

I just got a package from her.  It contained

One (1) card in an enveloped marked "To: [Morag] Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas (much belatedly) P.S. open presents before the card (card contains spoilers)" with many stars on

AND

One (1) boomerang from Australia (I'm hoping she wasn't intending this as a death threat ala Scandal in Belgravia, but then I remembered I can't even make a yo-yo work, there's no way I'll actually get a boomerang to come back

AND 

Twelve (12) crocheted and knitted fish of many varieties.

So, if I find a cheap old black leather jacket, here in meatspace, I can actually look like I do on the internets.

As I said, who is made of awesome-sauce?  fish_echo is, that's who.  Thank you, sweetie, I love the presents and you too.

Contents include: Language, disturbing dream imagery
Summary: Everyone needs their secrets, Arthur knows that, but there’s something huge he’s missing here and without it, Sam’s a puzzle he can’t quite solve.



September 4, 2001


Arthur's sitting in a diner booth across from the Winchester kid (emphasis on 'kid'), who's sucking down a milkshake like he’s going for a prize, giving these tiny groans of pleasure every time he pauses for breath. Arthur looks down at the milkshake in front of him, wishing he could block the sounds as as easily as the visuals, both o...

Rating: R
Series: Not Such as I Was
Pairings: Mal/Dom, Sam/Arthur, Arthur/Eames
Timeline: Set during the first half of season four in Supernatural, during an in-movie flashback for Inception.
Disclaimer: None of the canonical characters contained herein belong to me and this work is not intended for any profit or other commercial purposes.
Contents include: Insanity, suicidal ideation
Summary: There are many reasons why Mal must make Dom wake up with her.

November, 2008

Mal sweeps her arm across the table she'd just carefully set, sending the food, flowers, and flatware flying across the hotel room. She thinks for a moment and then grabs one end of the table and pulls it over on its side. The salt shaker tumbles to the floor, creating a thin arc of salt on the carpet between her and the door.

Salt on the carpet, salt blocking the doors: Sam had kept on...

Okay, so these are a little random, so short captions while I remember it all, yeah? Bear in mind I slept through about five hours of the entire beta and wrote this up last night before going to sleep and forgetting why I'd taken each shot in the first place.

Illustration

First screencap, just to prove that my health cap was, at one point, 666, possibly because dear Yoavina, my character, is in fact The Whore of Babylon. More signs to come.

Illustration

So, the screenshots started coming quicker as the weekend drew to a close and a random bug opened every waypoint to me.  Squid managed to jerry-rig himself and Sin in later, but this was in case they couldn't -- proof I'd gotten to places we weren't meant to go.  Also, I worship the moon and colorful windmills.  Tilt away, Señor Quijano -- some of us are busy worshiping the gorgeously rendered moon.

Illustration

Also, I like pretty shiny swirly things. Now, we were fairly sure the programmers didn't intend for most players to reach these areas this weekend, like here on the windmill, but this was actually surprisingly functional.  That won't last.

Illustration

Pretty. Shiny. Fully clad.  This too does not last -- well, just that final bit.

Also, images Squid had only seen in the videos before this: the ghastly floating pirate ship.

"I...OK, not a crossover that would have occurred to me right off, but it works kind of scarily well." - Ao3 bookmark comment by MollyC

This sums up about half the comments this series has received, reminding me that not everyone has spent the last six months obsessing over Superception the way I have.  For me, this is a parallel head canon, so I'm always confused by people being surprised that it works. Of course it works! This is how it happened!

The thing of it is: I love this crossover and I will never be able to write all of the fic that I want in it.  Plus, I'm lazy and would like to read some without having to write it first. Hence this post: the merged timeline of my Superception 'verse, "Not Such As I Was".  If you're curious how to pull the two canons together, here are the basic mechanics and back story for how I chose to do it: a mix of canon, fanon, historical fiction, applied phlebotinum, miracles, and, of course, True Love(s).

I post it in the hopes it may inspire some people to cross these canons over in completely different ways.  It's also an open invitation for other people to join this sandbox; after the timeline, there are some general guidelines that I'm using while writing the series, further details on Project Lavoisier, quite a bit of miscellany and some story ideas that I don't know if I'll ever get around to incorporating.  But maybe one of you will.

Needless to say: here there be spoilers-- probably.  This is a living document: it's how I think the two canons interacted prior to June 2012 (with the help of my accomplices - Cally, Squid, Sis, DS, Mel, Lass and anyone else whose ear I've talked off: THANK YOU.).  Particular details about events may change in the process of fic writing, or if someone happens to come along with some much better idea about what happened.  Also, these are by no means the only places where the canons intersected: others almost certainly happened, it's just th...

I was just procrastinating on tumblr.  I reblogged one of his posts and answered a question he posed within, because, well, A Game of You was on the shelf right next to me.

Then I got an e-mail from tumblrbot saying that Neil-Gaiman had asked me a question.

This was obviously from a universe with zeppelins in, except:

As calmly as possible, I tried to piece together a coherent reply.

Then I got to look at my dash again and find this:

Psych #1: Why is the first word you always use to describe yourself "short"?
Me: Because it's the obvious one. "Look for the short chick." People pick me out of a crowd every time.
Psych #1: You seem to focus on being small, it comes up almost randomly in conversation. Why is that?
Me: Because it's not something I ever have a chance to forget about.
Psych #1: Why? Do other people always bring it up? Because you seem to be the one always bringing it up in our conversations.
Me: No, it's because... well, being as short as I am is really tedious.
Psych #1: I don't understand. How is being short tedious?
Me: Like when I cook, if I need something in the pantry, I have to climb up a stool to grab it. God help me if I forget to grab everything I need in one trip, otherwise it's back up the stool. And standing in grocery aisles, waiting for someone, anyone to show up to grab something for me. People are always nice about it, but I'm still the one always stuck there waiting for them.
Psych #1: Huh. I never thought of it like that.

Hi. I'm Morag! There's a number of new people about (I'll get to that in a minute), and it's been awhile since I posted anything that wasn't, well, porn (there's an explanation!), so an intro/update post isn't uncalled for. I've been doing a lot of tumblr-ing too, which has added think-y things, as well as thesis-ing, so more thinking. But yeah, first thing to know about me: I'm 4'9", short enough for it to be annoying, not quite so short that people ask if it's a symptom. Also probably a good giveaway up there: the necessity of numbering my psychiatrists and psychologists.

Another thing about me: I'm allergic to lanolin (read: almost all wool, except for certain goats and as it turns out, buffalo) and the only craft-y thing I have any talent for is...

Self-Cest Comment Fic Meme
Banner by Illustrationthecookiemomma


So, the response to the meme has been rather overwhelming. I couldn't be happier: there are some prompts in there that I'm absolutely dying to read. I'm also not entirely sure how word of is spreading: there are people promoting it on tumblr (thanks!), I posted a promo at crossoverfic and at a couple specific fandom communities; but I've never met half the commenters (which is awesome, nice to meet you all!), and what's more, I've never heard of some of these fandoms before!

Which is fantastic, but I do have one worry. It's great to see such diverse prompts, but it's a Comment-Fic Meme and those aren't nearly as fun as they should be if there aren't fills to go with the prompts. I've been doing my part, but my f-list is obviously dominated by people from my fandoms and this has become a truly multi-fandom meme.

So while I don't want to stop the prompts (not for another week or two at the least), if you're an author in any of the following fandoms, consider dropping in and seeing if you can make a fill (and feel free to leave your own prompt while you're there). Anonymous commenting is ON and IP logging is OFF for now; so if you're feeling a little shy about filling or prompting a kinky situation, feel free to do so anonymously.

Bear in mind, these are only the fandoms with existing pro...

Many thanks to Illustrationthecookiemomma  for this lovely banner</user>

This is a multi-fandom comment-fic meme based on the following exchange:

Callowyn: to me, there is no such thing as a crack pairing.
Morag: Would you ship Arthur from Inception with Tom from 500 Days of Summer?
Callowyn: dude, I invented a verse solely for reasons of misha kissing misha. I WOULD SHIP ANYONE WITH THEMSELVES. AND YOU CAN QUOTE ME ON THAT.
Morag: Challenge accepted.

And there’s so much to work with! How many times have characters canonically met their past selves, or alternate reality versions of themselves, or an evil doppelganger, or even run across the actors that play them? How many crossovers have you read where someone meets their look-alike from another universe? Think of the classic Buffy episode The Replacements, in which Riley Finn says of two Xanders: "Doesn't it make everyone wanna lock them in separate rooms and do experiments on them?"

Fuck that shit, let's see what happens when they're locked in a room together! Maybe they'll have sex? Awesome. We all love imagining pretty faces making out with each other. Now it’s time to imagine pretty faces making out with themselves!

Rules:

All fandoms welcome! Both RPF and Fanfiction are fair game. And yes, this is an invitation for someone to write Brit Marling/Rhoda Williams (Another Earth).Threesomes and more-somes ...

If you haven't been watching, the spontaneous transformation of E! Online's TV's Top Couples poll comment section into a Doctor Superlock RP session is one of the greatest and most beautiful things ever.  My favorite moment?  When Jim Moriarty started flirting with Lucifer.

You came to power on the same wave that gave us Web 2.0, the one built on user-provided content.  As it turns out, people were a lot more interested in each other than we were in pretty much anything else (okay, except for porn).  One of the reasons many of us were comfortable sharing content was because it was not necessarily linked to our meatspace identity.  We could be different people on different sites (there are things said on this site that would not be said on sites linked with my meatspace identity -- in turn, information on my meatspace life here tends to be descriptive but not specific).

Has there been a single instance since the inception of Web 2.0 that users have reacted positively to post hoc information sharing without explicit consent?  Or has there been massive outrage until users were permitted to limit data sharing in accordance with individual comfort level?  IT HAPPENS EVERY FUCKING TIME.

And yet you don't seem to learn.  So here we go again.

Google, you provide some wonderful services; I've had a gmail account since the first round of invites.  Last time I checked I have... eight separate log ins.  But I'm gonna have to limit my use of them now.  Announcing a sweeping privacy reform while not permitting users to choose which of your services they want to use?  Does not count as asking for our permission.  (Completely abandoning google just isn't convenient at this time, especially given the dearth of alternatives without equally troublesome privacy issues of their own)

I won't miss google+ (although given that it's been several hours since I deleted the google+ accounts, those profiles really ought to be gone by now).  No more browsing while logged in.  No more personalized news.  I now have to delete your cookie EVERY DAMN DAY.  Basically, chrome is now my google docs viewer and nothing more. And no more logging in to gmail unless I need to search for a conversation-- thunderbird is go.  ...

Stage directions are over-rated (also, I need to write some porn for the next scene in the next actual story in this 'verse, which means I need my porn writing security blanket, aka Illustrationcallowyn , to settle in for the semester and make me write the phone sex.) Anyway: more Superception pic-spam/pretty things to distract you from exposition dumping.

Warning: While being a PG-13 story, this ficlet contain references to dub-con Samifer goings on.

Okay, I admit it: the temptation to pic-spam Dean in his '40s get up is too strong to resist. So I tacked some dialogue from one of the up-coming "Not Such As I Was" stories onto them to justify myself (and that way I get to pic-spam Hotel-Level Arthur and Eames too!). Also, Illustrationtabaqui was asking about Arthur and Dean's relationship after the last story — this is about as well as the two of them will ever get along.

From Illustrationedenfalling 

Pick up the nearest book to you. Turn to page 45. The first full sentence describes your sex life in 2012.

Shit.  The nearest book I have is by Dan Savage.  All things considered, it could be worse.  From The Commitment: Love, Sex, Marriage and My Family:

"They must know people are coming here for summer vacation," Terry said, "and they figure they'll gouge you on drink mix."
Drunken sex after overpriced drinks?  That sounds nothing like me at all.  =D  Of course, when it comes to real life, I am an enormous Dan/Terry shipper, and Terry can make me quadruple margaritas any time he likes.

The series/'verse previously known as my Sam/Arthur, Arthur/Eames Supernatural-Inception Fusion of Doom™ actually has a name, "Not Such as I Was."  Now that it has more than a couple of stories in it, it's earned a masterpost!  So, from now on, links will be collected here.  Furthermore, if anyone else is interested in contributing to the 'verse, you can private message me and I will send you a link to the original timeline that birthed this beast.

Updated:  01 December 2012

The following links and brief headers/summaries lead to the DW posts with complete headers, which are also crossposted to LJ for those who prefer to comment there.  I suggest reading in posting order, as chronologically things get a little tricky.

Timeline
NB: This is essentially the story bible of the entire 'verse.  It is presented to encourage others to write more Superception crossovers/make more art, etc., either within the 'Not Such' series or by having others look at it and say, "Well, no, it obviously the crossover happened this way." It also contain copious spoilers, but if you're getting impatient with the pace I write at, the titbits offered here are better than nothing -- and maybe you'll write some of the more atmospheric fics and world building ones better than I could. I'd love to read them.

Not Such As I Was Timeline


Tumblr
Feel like contributing just a couple of words whenever you feel like it?  This 'verse now has a collaborative tumblr that you may join or simply submit materials to.  It's slightly haunted by Lucifer, but we're starting to feel cozy there.  So, please, join us at luciferknowsyourtotem

So, I'm just finishing 3.10 of Deadwood and I have to ask:

Does the actors subplot ever go anywhere?  Does it have any connection whatsoever to the rest of the story?  Or did the writers find out they hadn't been renewed and decided to take a whole lotta LSD before writing up the finale?  I am literally gnawing on my fist every time there's a scene change and we wind up with the actors.  This is worse than watching the wheels come off of Twin Peaks.  At least with David Lynch, I expect this sort of bizarro-plot foil.

On the other hand, there's also my ongoing crush on Calamity Jane... well, maybe not so other hand with the whole dream bit-- but anyway, much approval for Jane/Joanne.

Pairings: Sam/Arthur,
Timeline: Set during "Dream a Little Dream" (3.10) for Supernatural, pre-movie for Inception.
Series: Not Such As I Was
Contents include: Language, graphic sexual situations
Summary: Sam never expected both of his lives to catch up with him at once.

January, 2008

Dean picked out one of the papers from Bobby's mural of research. "'Silene capensis,' which of course means absolutely nothing to me."

Things clicked into place in ways that were totally fucking impossible. Silene capensis might not have meant anything to Dean, but it meant a whole other world to Sam, one he thought he’d left behind. Fortunately, Dean was looking away while Sam schooled his expression into something more neutral.

"Here, obit," Sam said, a little too eager, and started reading it aloud. There had to be something in here to occupy Dean for a few hours...

Thing the First: Catching up on Leverage and there was Hardison in a waistcoat. I thought my waistcoat-thing was just due to Arthur, but no, it's its own thing. Illustration

Thing the Second:
I'm actually trying real, no-holds-barred self-editing on a story, which I haven't done in ages because my betas spoil the crap out of me. I swear that most of what I'm doing is deleting over-dramatic lines, eliminating parts that at one point fit where I thought the story was going but didn't in the finished product, and stream-lining dialogue. Despite this, the word count has gone up by almost a thousand words from where it started. Seriously, WTF?


Six-word stories: I've posted about these before, and they can be both tricky and a lot of fun. If you come up with one, please, share it in the comments—any fandom, no fandom, whatever— all are welcome. To kick things off, here are three six-word stories from my Inception-Supernatural AU fusion series... thing.

1. Azazel's 'special children' built spectacular dreams.

2. Sam didn't give Arthur pet names.

3. Eames could always spot Lucifer's tells.

Summary: Mal survives in different memories in different ways.

Ariadne pulled her wrist away and shouted, "That's some subconscious you've got in there, Cobb!" Arthur froze for a split-second as the pain narrowed to a needle-fine point in his chest, knowing what was coming. "She's a real charmer!"

It still hurt. He rolled his eyes to cover the wince. "I see you met Mrs. Cobb," he muttered, looking down and rolling the still-warm strap in his hands.

Ariadne gaped at him, her breath still shaky from that first death. The first one always sucked. "She's his wife?" she yelped, aghast.

"Yeah," Arthur admitted, then switched the subject before she noticed. He ...
