er, um

I have these ideas for a couple of slash stories that have been floating around my
head (or somewhere) for a while now and I'm not sure what to do with them. I don't
generally have much urge to write fiction, but that's primarily due to no talent
for plotting, not a major challenge in this case. Both stories would certainly be
NC-17, so the uh, climax of the plot is somewhat pre-determined. One is
Holmes/Watson; I didn't even know there were others with that pairing until href="http://mechaieh.diaryland.com">Mechaieh (a Sherlockian) managing not to
tell me I was just being stupid, suggested I try a quick web search. Turns out
there are entire sites on the theme. The other, which first occurred to me during
a chat with Natalie pairs up Robert
Heinlein's Lazarus Long and Andrew Jackson Libby, quite possibly not a pair that
have been written about before (at least, I couldn't turn up anything in another
quick search). Though I can't really claim any great perception in spotting the
homoerotic comment there, since Lib says as much in Number of the Beast.

Anyway, I don't want to post it here. Too many people whose opinions
on the subject I'm not sure I even want to know, know about this diary. (Though
ironically, the two members of my family I think I've mentioned it to probably
wouldn't mind.) So if I ever have time to write up either story, what do I do with
them? And how easy is it to keep the author's identity from being obvious? I don't
care about inviolable secrecy but would rather not be a bright shining beacon to a
simple search. It might be nice if there were some reasonably anonymous way to get
feedback, too.

I must not be all that worried, or I wouldn't
be writing this entry. Maybe I'm just easily embarrassed.
