This fic is not by me. How I wish I could say that it is, but it's not. It is written by someone I've recently had the privilege to come to call a friend, who wanted to have a crack at writing something that she'd never done before and wasn't prepared to unmask right now. I understand her reasoning, and hope that you can accept this as truth rather than the old "my friend wrote this fic..." schtick because it isn't. I would be proud to own this one as my work. But instead, I am proud to present it for her.

Anon commenting is switched on for this post, and I won't be replying to comments. Rather, the writer will respond to anyone kind enough to leave a one. Everything from this point onward is in her words:

Title: Stockholm Syndrome
Fandom: Museslash
Pairing: Matthew Bellamy/Dominic Howard
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,635
Summary: It's about exploring boundaries and trust, fulfilling a partner's fantasy.
Warnings: BDSM, handcuffs, rope bondage, pain, spanking, cutting, verbal abuse and humiliation.
Writer's Notes: I've read a lot of slash over the years, but I've never been able to read a complete fic that centres on BDSM. It's something that really unsettles me, most of the time. That's why when I heard about the Come As You're Not fic writing party, it was the first thing that sprung to mind. This has been a real revelation to write and couldn't have been done without the unfailing support of [livejournal.com profile] filthgoblin. You’ve been a god-send for guiding me through this, and persuading me it’s good enough to share.

I’m still not sure I’ve cured myself of the unease of reading it, but maybe I have of writing it.

As some of you might already know, [livejournal.com profile] karaokegal has a Halloween party post over at her journal called "Come As You're Not". Basically, it's a fic fancy dress party, and by that I mean you are challenged to write something that you would never write in a million years. [livejournal.com profile] karaokegal explains it better than I could, so I'll copy and paste from her post:

YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO:

[livejournal.com profile] karaokegal's Fourth Annual “Come As You’re Not” fanfic costume party.

Who is invited: YOU! If you're seeing this posted anywhere on your friends list, even if you've never heard of me, please come to the party anyway.

I’m inviting you all to write a fanfic as someone other than yourselves.

Costume examples:

If you’re known for linear narrative, go poetic and out of sequence.

Are you a fluff-bunny? Write angst. (And if you're known for developing hives at the hint of fluff, take a few Benedryl and write some.)

Have you said you can’t/won’t do smut? Go down and dirty.

Smutstress extra-ordinaire? Do something so gen a five-year-old can read it.

Write for a pairing you don’t believe in, preferably one that violates your OTP. (Or write threesome fic for your OTP and the biggest threat to their relationship.)

Cross-dressing: Do a story for a fandom you’ve never written in. Think of all the great fandoms that have cropped up since last year...this isn't JUST a House-party or a Torchwood party. Any fandom (movie, tv show, play, book, literature) is welcome.

Bi-fictionality is HIGHLY encouraged. If you've never written slash-now's the time. If you're a true-blue slash fan and totally squicked out by the idea of HET---GO FOR IT!

In fact, this may be the perfect time to face your worse squicks-Bring on the age-discrepancy, hetero, wing-fic! Incest? Rimming? Contact lens sharing? Bring it on!

Write in a style you claim to despise. Songfics, deathfics, AU are all welcome as long as it’s something that you would never be caught dead doing in a million, billion, years.

Base a fic on a cliché you’ve been railing against.

Write a purposely sucky story and create your own MST for it. Or pair up with someone and get them to do the MST for you.

RPS/RPF are more than acceptable, if it's a pairing you haven't done before and especially if you've gone on record saying that RPS/RPF is nasty, bad, icky, squicky etc.

For added costume appeal-create a userpic that is totally NOT YOU!

No word restrictions. Elaborate costumes (long fics), masks thrown over the face (drabbles), and anything in between are fine.

Check out the parties from 2006 and 2007 and 2008 for examples. (And remember it's never too late to comment on a fic.)

RSVP is nice, but not necessary. You can tell us your costume in advance or surprise us at the party.

About two weeks before, I'll be loading up the truck and going shopping so think about what libations, yummies and recreational drugs you'd like me to procure.

Once again, the party will last a whole week so you needn't feel rushed to post and read everything in 24 hours.

I’ll open the post as soon as it turns October 31st my time, which means the UK can start partying bright and early. Post the story in your own LJ and put the link in a comment.

BRING FRIENDS: Please, please, please pimp this post on your F-list, but NOT in any of the fiction communities. This is not an official Ficathon, Challenge, or Exchange. It’s just a party!

And remember, even if you don't wear a costume, you're more than welcome to attend as a reader. (And bring friends.)




The original thread to state your intentions [if you want to, it's not compulsory] is here. I have some amazing writers on my f-list so it would be great to see some of you guys over there. I already have my fic idea germinating, and it features writing my first piece in a fandom I've not yet written for and tackling one of my massivest, squickiest fictional and real-life squicks head-on.

I'm off out in a little while with a friend to see The Boat That Rocked. I want to see it, it's chock-full of actors I really respect (Nick Frost and Bill Nighy to name just two), but it's had mixed reviews. The friend I'm going with was looking for someone to see it with a second time so it can't be all bad. I'll report back if anyone's interested, and if you've seen it and want to share your views then feel free to wade in :)

In other news, [livejournal.com profile] candesgirl is having a Pervy Picture Party. Pop along, post up a picture that you like for someone else to use as a fic prompt or choose one that you like the look of and write a fic about it. I will go along with a pic once I think of one, and I will write something once there's some pics up there to choose from. All good, friendly, happy fun. Lovely :D

I don't really know if this is pimpage [because it was someone else's fic] or whorage [given I had a hand in making it]. But anyway, the moderator of [livejournal.com profile] dw_podfic recently approached [livejournal.com profile] terraswrath and asked her if she would consider recording, or having someone record for her, a Theta/Koschei fic she wrote a while back called "Say My Name" for the comm. Someone had requested it, and even though I was struck down with laryngitis at the time, I offered to read it once I was better since Terra didn't really fancy doing it and was unsure about someone she didn't know reading it out.

So I did. This evening. I've never really understood why people would want fic in podcast form, but apparently it's catching on. So if you fancy having a listen: to try something different; to get a fix of Whofic; or even if you're just suddenly taken with a whimsy to hear what I sound like, you can find it here.
