I’ve been juggling a lot of health issues recently, and as a result of this I’d unfortunately dropped off my regular update schedule for a few months. I’ll now be returning to the normal schedule, and a weekly update of works most recently published will be coming out on Saturdays going forward — this summary will be dispatched directly to inboxes by email via ButtonDown, as well as posted on Tumblr.
I will be posting from Wales instead of Ireland for the foreseeable future, and as well as the usual retinue of TweetFic, essays and analysis, short fiction, and serial updates, I’m currently on a big Star Trek kick, and as well as posting episode analyses and likely specifically Star Trek: Deep Space Nine-themed essays , I’m also writing a bit of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fanfiction at the moment!
If you’re a fan of DS9 or Star Trek, it might be to your taste, but fanfic isn’t part of any of my subscription models and of course, being fanfiction of a property that’s not in the public domain, it won’t be posted behind a paywall on Patreon or Medium — fanfiction will be posted on Ao3. It’s just a little hobby stuff I’m doing on the side, so if people are into it, great, and if not, hopefully it’s not too annoying in amongst the rest!
I’m going to put a summary of everything I’ve published since I last put out my weekly round-up in July and from here on, we’ll be returning to our usual scheduled round-up each week.
Thanks so much for the patience and all the love, everybody! I’m feeling far, far better and much recovered compared to how I was a few months ago, and everyone’s support has been lovely.
Summary of New Works Published
Serial Update: Powder and Feathers
Chapter Forty-Nine: Party Favour. Jean-Pierre and Aimé orchestrate their gangbang.
This chapter is pure filth.
Chapter content warnings: levels of dubious consent and consensual non-consent, with other men under the impression that Jean-Pierre is drunk; object insertion; messy sex; power exchange and power play; manipulation; rape fantasy; referenced violence; transphobia and misgendering; homophobia
Serial Updates: An Uncommon Betrothal
Several updates of An Uncommon Betrothal have come out over the past few months, so I’m just going to pop a list of them all here!
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Episode Analyses
This is a new format I’m going to be experimenting while working my way through Star Trek: Deep Space Nine over the next few months — I’ve seen the whole series many times before, and it’s my plan to do these write-ups which will be a mix of blog and live-reaction, character and story analysis and commentary, and other ephemera and thoughts on the show and the episode itself.
Effectively, the purpose of this and the other entries going forward is to do close-readings of each episode I have in front of me.
My main interests in watching Deep Space Nine are typically in queer-coding, the depiction of neurodivergence, mental illness, and disability, and in the Cardassians and the Ferengi.
TweetFic: A King’s Man
The nastiest, NASTIEST men in this one, when an assassin is caught by his mark, the king, and held captive.
CW for violence, manipulation, heavily weighted power dynamics, consent issues, threats, and general MEAN Men.
Romance Short: The Blacksmith and the Florist
Romantic short: a chronically fatigued enchanter becomes fascinated with one of the neighbours. Adapted from a TweetFic — short and sweet! Discussions of chronic fatigue and pain throughout. Rated T, M/M, 2.3k.
Star Trek Deep Space Nine Fanfic: Tease
Garak/Bashir, Rated M, 1.5k. In the aftermath of the incident with Tahna Los, Garak catches Julian on the way back to his quarters.
Star Trek Deep Space Nine TweetFic: Aging Men
Garak/Bashir, bickering about growing older, dialogue only.
TweetFic: On The Job
Silly little slice of life and flirtation between a hotel receptionist and the new maintenance guy! Short and sweet.
Star Trek Deep Space Nine Fanfic: Interpersonal Studies
Fanfic serial. Garak/Bashir, Rated E, 15k+.
Garak and Julian work to get the measure of one another, each of them trying to see what’s hidden under the other man’s skin.
Playing with a lot of the canon relationship development but actually letting them touch and play with one another — leaning into Bashir’s autism and his status as an augment from the beginning, not to mention his analysis of Garak, and Garak’s own analysis of him.
Erotic Short: Suspended Pleasures
Rope bondage and potion play in the apothecary’s office. Rated E. 1k. M/M short between a cis apothecary and a trans partner.
Age difference, suspension bondage, overstimulation, crying, come inflation, and fear of getting caught, as well as mentions of exhibitionism.
Erotic Short: Fit For Purpose
Supervillains and superheroes, but with massive cocks and stretchy bodies. Oh, yes, you read that right.
M/M explicit short between a huge cis male alien superhero and a trans man supervillain with whole-body elasticity. 4.2k.
Silly and light in humour, but extreme on the porn! Featuring pheromones (mildly dubious consent for this, but both parties use pheromones to get their way, and are enthusiastically into it), come inflation, huge size difference, unrealistic sex, alien dicks, prodigious amounts of come, dom/sub, mild corporal punishment, undernegotiated kink, rough sex, objectification, dirty talk.
