I thought that felt familiar.

Strangely comfortable
This post is brought to you by the letter S: Shayara, sex, and sindrian!

So I'm working on Jessa's story a bit. Particularly on fleshing out (heh) her relationship with the Hallorans. (Yes, Cicatrix is my primary focus. Jessa's story, which really needs a name, is my unicorn chaser, because we're not at the parts where people are getting killed yet.) And I scrolled past a particular bit, a sex scene between her and Fenris, and...


I re-read it.

I scroll back up and read another.

I skim through a lot of it.

And I start blushing like crazycakes.

Because, y'know, years after I established Jessa and Fenris's sexual dynamic in loving detail? I ended up having pretty much exactly that sex.

Like, I think sindrian and I have used the same dialogue.

Seriously. Everything. Just. OH HAI. No wonder we feel so familiar to each other.

It's funny, because he is not Fenrislike in any other respect, and the Jessa/Fenris arc bears no resemblance to our relationship at all. If anyone, sindrian reminds me of Victor - even then, not a lot, just his general energy and the way he carries himself.

I don't usually make myself blush, y'all. But yeah. I was totally having pretty much exactly that sex.

(Man, I miss him. Eight months.)

(No, this is not in the sexfilter, because there are no details.)

(Jessa's story, however, is so chuck full of details that it's almost certainly unpublishable.)

Oh, my. I was in the same position once -- I wrote a very emotionally-charged, tremendously romantic reunion scene in my big Snape story, and then found myself dating someone I'd known twenty years before. And something very like the reunion scene took place.

I'm not kidding about the dialogue. *blush*

I didn't think you were. My reunion scene was not exactly heavy on the dialogue -- it was full of description and internal monologue.

But I also know what it's like to be repeating dialogue I've already written, except this time not in the story.

So I believe this unreservedly.

Yeah, a lot of the similarities here are not-dialogue, too.

...I miss him lots. Not just because of that.

Or possibly just publishable in a different venue. :-)

Hmmm... You know, suddenly it occurs to me that there might be a market somewhere for an anthology where not-known-for-their-porn authors get to publish all their "too hot for the actual novel" scenes and chapters... Possibly under the title "Deleted Obscenes". =;o}

Come to think of it, I know from anecdotes told on the con circuit there's a number of authors [mentioning no names] who indeed do have snippits of 'too hot for publication' stuff.

Including at least one fairly well known young adults/children's author, who lamented over drinks that they could *never* publish anything remotely adult now! As their publisher would drop them like the proverbial hot potato.

Of course, getting them to agree to publish in this anthology might be tricky, I suspect it'd have to be anonymously

I have an anecdote rather like that, but it is not fit for public consumption. So I posted it to a very tight filter on my LJ that you can read. :-)

At a guess, your subconscious liked the sound of what you'd written and decided to try it for real.

You do realize I really want to read this now, right?
13th-Jan-2011 01:00 pm (UTC)
I shall read it aloud to you. And then we can act it out. (Again.)

I imagine there won't be waiting til the reading is done, more like stage direction... which of course will lead to not reading to the end, but oh well, the end can be read later...
