i run nedxnancy.tumblr.com for my daily fix of nancy/ned action. i love: nancy drew, law & order criminal intent, the fall, dark city, mad men, arrested development, archer, community, justified, lois & clark, star trek, perry mason, jane eyre, eddie izzard, terry pratchett, addams family, apple, bertha cool & donald lam, MST3K, interpol, my morning jacket, st vincent, playmobil, diana gabaldon's cracktastic outlander series, raymond chandler, cillian murphy, wodehouse; alias, chuck, carnivale, pushing daisies, the adventures of pete & pete, tomorrow people (new series), veronica mars, legend of the seeker/the sword of truth, lost, x-files.

 

well, that certainly took long enough.

five months later, the next section of chapter 3 of precious (chapter 3 is STILL NOT COMPLETED) is finished.

seriously i just need to give up and stop calling it chapter 3.

someone else's arms (Nancy Drew, Nancy/Ned, R, 1/?) | Archive of Our Own

During Ned’s junior year at Emerson, Nancy finds herself at a crossroads as she begins to plan the next step in her life—but the best-laid plans often go awry.

Note: This story was written in response to a specific prompt, and the premise and certain plot elements might not work for some readers. The version of Frank Hardy in this story is like a worst-case one, and if you’re fond of him, you would likely call his behavior here out of character. The story also includes (offscreen) assault. Please read responsibly.

so, debating about what to do about someone else’s arms

should i change a rather important detail, or not, before i post it to AO3?

pros and cons either way

more work for me to change it; more angst for other people if i don’t

chapter 4 at my writing journal
story to date at AO3

I have published 250* stories on AO3!

ndnickerson:

*actually 251, although I suppose the number is still accurate since one story is an alternate ending of another story.

I feel like celebrating! I’m not sure how, though. Maybe by opening up a small number of request slots for fic. (I’m also considering making a patreon account, thanks to freaoscanlin's telling me about it, but I'm still debating.)

My next milestone is 200 Nancy Drew stories - I’m currently at 179. :D

(Why yes I do actually need to be awake at a decent time tomorrow. Heh.)
