Title: THE SIN OF SILENCE

Author: NegativeSpaces (Tumblr)

Rated: M

SynopsisSantana knows that dodging fists and stashing bodies isn’t the glamorous lifestyle that rappers make albums about, but nobody pays them to be accurate. In between making her own way and making sure Puck doesn’t say something that’ll end his, a chance encounter with a familiar blue-eyed stranger has her all too aware of the sacred virtue of silence.

Title: DEOS FORTIORIBUS ADESSE

Author: pleasanthell (Tumblr)

Rated: M

SynopsisBrittany felt her chest heaving. Suddenly everyone was looking at her, including the Spartan and the boy. She found herself leaning on the front of her imperial box. She must have called out because everyone was looking at her. She took a few deep breaths before gathering her thoughts. It was difficult when she couldn’t rip her eyes from the Spartan’s stare. The deep brown eyes held her captive.

BrittanaCon 2014: Featured Author Series 10

brittanacon2014:

***Just 2.5 weeks until BrittanaCon!!! There’s still time to get a SUPPORTING MEMBERSHIP or make a DONATION, they’ll remain open until August 7th***

image

The tenth installment of our Featured Author Series showcases a Con staff member who has been working her tail off to make our first BrittanaCon a huge success, LebaneseToaster.  She’s recently added her writing to fanfiction.net but has been an active author on tumblr for a while and specializes in fantastically fluffy Brittana.  As for attending this first BrittanaCon, she had this to say: “I am so excited for BrittanaCon that I can not even put it into words.  From the moment I heard about it, I was willing to do whatever I could to help make it a reality.  I am so looking forward to meeting everyone who has helped bring this fandom to life!  A fandom is nothing without its fans, and let’s be honest, we’ve got some pretty awesome fans!”  We agree and we can’t meet to everyone too!

If you’re on the look-out for sweet Brittana drabbles and one-shots, Heather’s tumblr and fanfic profile are the place to go.  She specializes in whimsical!Brittany and totally-in-love-with-her!Santana in each of these cute pieces.  Heather writes high school age Brittana perfectly, capturing their love for one another and their individual characterizations in snippets ranging from cuddle time in Soft Dreams to a sweet stroll in Pixies and Sprites to studying for finals in Oatmeal.  Her headcanon for young!Brittana is superb in A Matching Set, we wouldn’t mind seeing this developed into a multi-chapter cause it’s just so darn fluffy.  

She currently has one multi-chapter in the works, Blue, that features high school age, but AU!Brittana as nerd!Santana and new girl!Brittany meet on Britt’s first day of school.  Santana feels an immediate, inexplicable connection to Brittany that Heather sets up beautifully.  Just three chapters in so far, we’re hoping there’s more to come for this one soon!

As always, a big shout-out to LebaneseToaster and all of our attending or supporting authors for keeping hope in Brittana alive during the dark canon days.  Please stop by their author pages and drop them a line to tell them just how grateful we are as a fandom for their contributions!

Thank you to all who are following and reblogging, keep spreading the word on all the exciting things happening as our countdown continues!!!

BrittanaCon 2014: Featured Author Series 9

brittanacon2014:

***Attending registration is now closed but SUPPORTING REGISTRATION and DONATIONS remain open until August 7th***

We are just three weeks away from our big weekend in Richmond and as more details fall into place, we are all binge reading our favorite authors in preparation!  In our ninth installment of the Featured Author Series, we present the work of another attending author, JennaMacaroni. While our last author post featured a master of angst, we got a nice respite in the fluff and feels of JennaMacaroni’s various Brittana stories.  She had this to say about her excitement over attending BrittanaCon: “I guess what I’d say I’m most excited about for BrittanaCon is just to spend a whole weekend celebrating everything these girls made possible:  all the incredible art, the writing, the friendships forged, but especially the courage Brittana have given us over the years.  I feel like I’ve grown up with these girls and with this fandom (even if I was too shy to start posting fic until recently) and Brittana have helped me to realize all the awesome that I am and I am so grateful to have found this wonderful community because it’s opened up a whole other part of me that I never realized.  Plus I’ve been following some of these authors for years and will be fangirling SO hard to meet and hang out with some of them in person!” Us, too!!!

JennaMacaroni’s adorable stories dabble in both near canon/HS settings and awesome AU verses.  Her high school age, near canon one shots are just as fluffy as can be starting with Bachelorette in which we get the adorably whipped Santana we all know and love so much.  Clarity is a fantastic little look at how Santana spent the summer after Nationals in New York before Brittana’s senior year as she finds the courage to truly be herself and to love Brittany openly and for all to see.  We get another glimpse of sweet Santana in Late as she falls asleep while waiting for Brittany to come home from motocross. JennaMacaroni has a wonderful ability to transition from adorable to steamy in just a few brief sentences within a story, truly capturing the essense of Brittana’s relationship as they interact with one another. This is especially apparent in All I Want Is You, as Brittany plans a wonderful evening for their first official Valentine’s Day together.  How could the date be anything other than perfect when we get Santana and the “crazed breadsticks look in her eye”?  Just one example of her ability to bring laugh-out-loud funny into the fluffy fray!

Most of her recent work can be found in a series of fanslides and drabbles posted on her tumblr that also features her two fantastic multi-part AU works Unicorn Turds, a nifty HP!Brittana crossover, and Olympic Tryouts, a highly entertaining Brittana!hockey player fic.

Unicorn Turds features a whimsical look at Brittana at Hogwarts and she proves quite adept at nailing the characterizations of our other Glee favorites as they are all split up among the various houses.  Brittany is the big kahuna at Hogwarts, top of everything and as irresistible to Santana as ever, the only problem is that Santana can never seem to work up the courage to talk to her.  The pairing off of the Pezberry friendship is one of the best things about this verse, outside of the delicious Brittana interactions, of course!

Olympic Tryouts again features a large cast of Glee favorites but the crackling, electric interactions between Brittana from the get-go are absolutely what keep us coming back for more.  We know we aren’t the only ones who had flashbacks to canon’s First Time locker room looks while reading this verse!  Filled with fantastic details that contribute to the awesome imagery of Brittana as hockey players, JennaMacaroni manages to create unbelievably emotional, sweet moments in the midst of the humorous tension she builds between them.  Each chapter she posts just gets better than the one before it and we’re excited to see how it all “plays” out!

As always, a big shout-out to JennaMacaroni and all of our attending or supporting authors for keeping hope in Brittana alive during the dark canon days.  Please stop by their author pages, drop them a line to tell them just how grateful we are as a fandom for their contributions!

BrittanaCon 2014: Featured Author Series 8

brittanacon2014:

***ATTENDING REGISTRATION CLOSES THIS THURSDAY July 17th!!!***

image

The eighth installment of our Featured Author Series showcases the fantastic work of Frayedattheends.  She has written numerous stories for Brittana, tackling canon, near-canon, and AU in a variety of one-shots, multi-chapters, tumblr ficlets, and fanslides.  We are so thrilled that she will be attending BrittanaCon and taking part in some of our author activities!  She had this to say about attending: “I’m excited to go to BrittanaCon mostly because of the people. Tumblr is a place I feel like I can be myself more than anywhere else, and I feel comfortable. I look forward to meeting and hanging out with people I’ve found on here, and people I haven’t yet discovered, to be ourselves in person. To me it’s more about getting together as a community than just getting together to talk about all things Brittana. (Even though that is super important and exciting too.) I’m kinda anxious about it, and about letting people really meet me for who I am, but at the same time I know I’ll be accepted regardless. We’re a special fandom, and we’ve been through a lot together, and as cheesy as it sounds I think that and our love for those two dumbass cheerleaders connect us all in a very special way. I’m really just looking forward to spending a weekend around these people and our wonderful community to talk about a beautiful, fated couple that means something to each of us.”

Other than being fantastic, two things that distinguish Frayedattheends’ stories are that many of them are written from Brittany’s POV and many of them are chockful of angst (the major exceptions to this being her tumblr ficlet which are definitely lighter on the drama).  Her multi-chapter are not for the feint of heart, and even her canon related one-shots bring the feels hard.  The first, entitled She Is The Sunlight is set post-Diva and gives a fantastic look at Brittany’s thoughts and actions as she encouraged Santana to follow her dreams in NY.  While staying true to what we saw onscreen in the episode, Fray did a splendid job of fleshing out Brittany’s role in the episode and bringing the thoughts behind her actions to life.  Sometime Around Midnight takes place near-canon and features Brittany heading to NY to get her girl back, just as we all knew she would.  Imagine if canon actually let them meet back up in NY, complete with some drama, dialogue, and chemistry, and that would be this fantastic one-shot.

Fray’s foray into multi-chapter fics tackle some major angst and serious topics but are absolutely fantastic reads for those who can weather the emotional storm.  Love Remains the Same picks up Brittana immediately after Brittany completes her senior year with Santana headed to NY to follow her dreams and Brittany’s plans to go off in a separate direction to pursue her own.  The story unfolds as it follows their journeys and we discover that they are still connected, as they find their way back to the love for each other that never really left, in true Brittana fashion.  The fic incorporates a slew of our other favorite (and maybe some not favorite) Glee characters in fantastic supporting roles.  It’s truly amazing how Fray manages to nail each characterization so perfectly, blending them seamlessly into the story to make the Brittana of it all that much richer.  She has started the sequel, Worth Fighting For, and though it’s only two chapters in as WIP, the feels are already spilling out all over the place.  It picks up the action with a flash-forward prologue and then the first chapter jumps right in where LRtS left off.  Maybe we can gently encourage her to get back to this story soon and give us some majorly fluffy content to balance the overwhelming angst she seems to love!

Fray dives into even more angst in another multi-chapter entitled In The Darkest Part of Me.  In this AU fic, Fray wades into some pretty heavy territory as Brittany and Santana meet under difficult circumstances. Despite these circumstances, Brittana’s first encounter is absolutely electric and their interactions only get more charged as the fic progresses.  While Fray dabbles lightly in some common Brittana tropes, namely dancer!Britt and closeted!Santana, she goes far beyond basic characterizations and gives us complicated, multi-layered versions of these tropes that hook you from the start.  She again incorporates some familiar faces from canon and they add to our understanding and compassion for Brittana and their struggles from the get-go.  

Some of Fray’s lighter fare include Songs for Us, a nifty series of one-shots written to a song from her iTunes shuffle.  It is absolutely recommended to read with the song that was the story’s inspiration and it proves to be a really neat way to bounce from canon to near canon to AU, fluff to angst and everything in between.  

Her most recent multi-chapter is Learn You Inside Out, and features Brittana meeting up in the diner where Britt works in the small Ohio town where Santana travels to house-sit for her abuela.  Again, the first interactions between them are fantastic and will leave you craving more.  Despite Brittany’s considerable baggage, she and Santana become friends when Santana can’t seem to stay away from the diner or her.  The development of their relationship over the course of this WIP has been fantastic already and hopefully Fray can continue to both tease and please her readers as it progresses.

In addition to all of these, be sure to check out all the great ficlets and fanslides on Frayedattheends.  Her Days of Summer series is particularly fluffy and appropriate as we gear up for BrittanaCon in a few short weeks!

As always, a big shout-out to Frayedattheends and all of our attending or supporting authors for keeping hope in Brittana alive during the dark canon days.  Please stop by Amy’s author page and give her a warm fandom welcome.  Be sure to get your questions in for her and all our amazing author Q & As, panels, and discussions!!!

In our seventh installment of the Featured Author Series, we showcase a new author in the fandom, Queenofthegreatescape, who is working on a fantastic first story and will be attending BrittanaCon.  Amy has this to say about attending: “I cannot emphasize enough how excited I am to be attending the First Annual BrittanaCon next month.  While I am just starting to write for the fandom, I have been reading others’ stories for several years and have the utmost respect and admiration for the talent this wonderful group of people possess. Additionally the support and camaraderie that I have experienced just being associated with Brittana fans make it all the more worthwhile.  We laugh, we cry, we rage, we rejoice.  All as one.  What a powerful group we are indeed.  Can’t wait to make new and enhance existing friendships at BrittanaCon!”  She captures our thoughts on it pretty perfectly!

Her first foray into writing is the gripping AU fic, Internal Affairs.  It is a work in progress, with five fantastic chapters so far, that will leaving you antsy to read more practically from the first line.  The story features detective!Brittany as she navigates the fallout from an on duty incident in which her partner was injured and a suspect was killed.  Nothing is as it seems from the very start of the tale and it’s clear from the get-go that Brittany has more than one mystery to solve as the story progresses.

Amy builds the tension and drama between Brittana right along with the tension and drama of the main storyline.  In just five chapters, she’s delicately layered the interactions between them, played with an intricate power dynamic and effectively teased her readers with prospect of more.  She does an amazing job of capturing not only the Brittana characterizations, but also a slew of other favorite Glee characters who make appearances and truly fill out the universe she’s created.  We hope she’ll post more before BrittanaCon but we can’t wait to see where the story goes no matter when it happens!

Big shout-out to Queenofthegreatescape and all of our attending or supporting authors for keeping hope in Brittana alive during the dark canon days.  Please stop by Amy’s author page and give her a warm fandom welcome.  Be sure to get your questions in for her and all our amazing author Q & As, panels, and discussions!!!

Last week we featured a published author who also happens to write amazing Brittana fic and today, we are excited to feature yet another published author who graces us with amazing Brittana words.

Littleoases is the author of the young adult lesbian novel, Her Name in the Sky, but has also consistently written numerous canon-complementary and future!Brittana fics for the last three years.  She will be attending BrittanaCon and had this to say about why she’s excited: “I’m stoked! It’ll be a dream come true to meet other Brittana authors and hear about their writing process. It will also be so much fun to meet the people who have been reading my stories over these past few years. We all speak a common language when it comes to Brittana, and I am just so looking forward to being in a room with all these people and shouting that language all over the place!”  Sounds like she’s a fangirl at heart, just like the rest of us!

It could be said that Littleoases specializes in filling in the numerous gaps that canon leaves for Brittana, particularly during season 3 as our favorite girls were Figuring It Out  in which she perfectly captures the thoughts and feelings we as a fandom collectively knew Brittana were experiencing together.  The evolution of Brittana’s relationship, the support and love that they have for one another, and the ways they learn to express those things are all captured beautifully in her stories, perhaps none more so than No One Here Could Know.  This three-part story tackles the days that follow the events of “Mash-Off” and is as heart-wrenching and feels-inducing as you can imagine.  She perfectly fills in the atrocious narrative gaps, including a fantastic scene where we get a conversation between Finn and Brittany that I think every Brittana fan dreamed of after the episode aired.

Another fantastic glimpse of Brittana’s relationship is given in Ours, a nifty one shot that shows us Brittana through the eyes of eight different members of New Directions. Littleoases’ ability to capture the voices and characterizations of so many of our Glee favorites truly demonstrates the extent of her talent.  

Her ability to describe moments, beautifully capture them with words, and then unravel their emotional depth and significance is a gift that she shares over and over again in her one-shots including Debit Card (I’ve never been so moved by a PIN in my entire life), Girlfriend (the panic is palpable and adorable and exactly what we all imagine when Santana uses the word to describe Brittany for the first time), Fight (in which Brittana prove that even soulmates have fights and miscommunication, but Brittany is the genius we all know and love and Santana is mostly a lovesick puppy who sometimes gets scared and makes mistakes), and many, many more.

Littleoases tackles future!Brittana in the adorably domestic Filing that gives us a wonderful glimpse into their life together post-college, painting the picture of how they share even the most stressful but necessary of tasks lovingly, as partners in ways that make us “awwwwwwwww” our faces off.  She serves up a fantastically fluffy glimpse of future!Brittana in Valentine’s Day that captures their looks, their touches, and their loving words so sweetly and perfectly we may all end up with cavities.

Finally, she even manages to handle the angstiest of times beautifully in Faithfully that offers glimpses of Brittana’s relationship as told in five increments straddling seasons 1 through 5.  As canon winds down, we can only hope that Littleoases will tackle whatever loose ends we get for Brittana in the last season and that she will continue to write for them beyond the end of the show!

Big shout-out to Littleoases and all of our attending/supporting/participating authors for keeping hope in Brittana alive during the dark canon days.  Please stop by their author pages, drop them a line to tell them just how grateful we are as a fandom for their contributions, and start getting questions ready for the fic author panels and discussions!!!

Hi Guys,

I know it’s been a while since I’ve answered any questions, and I promise to start again. I’ve been going through some personal stuff, so I’ve taken a little sabbatical from answering them until I’m in the right headspace to both focus on providing the right answers and do so without getting easily frustrated.

In the meanwhile, I’ll still be providing fics. I’m steadily working my way backward on everything I have in my inbox, so I’m hoping to get more posted, or updated on finished fics.

Thanks for being patient with me. :)

- Carrie

Edit: If you’re desperately looking for a fic, feel free to inbox me on my personal Tumblr. Please make sure to not be on anonymous, so I can respond to you directly.
