I haven't signed up yet because I want to figure out an idea to write before I commit, but I wanted to put this here, because I always want more John or Jeff fic.

I think I mentioned the one-day film challenge (Crash Cinema) in my last post? Well, I did that. The film we made in 8(ish) hours came out kind of ridiculous but not terrible. Hopefully amusing. It was for the theme of Argo (that new Ben Affleck movie), and we had to incorporate a bunch of stuff into it. Anyway, I went to the press screening of Argo on Monday and LOVED it, and our short film is showing before the premiere of Argo tonight, so I'm going to see it again! This time with the whole red carpet dealio (lol). I might come back with more thoughts later, but for now I'll just say that I really enjoyed the movie, and that it was very tense at times but surprisingly hilarious at times too. Definitely not a "funny" movie, but lighthearted enough to break up the crazy tension and time pressure. Really good, though; I recommend it.

Last night, I watched Devour. Purely because of Jensen. (The things I do for him...) Reactions: 1) LOL 2) no really, LOL, what is that thing? 3) there is some terrible acting going on here 4) holy god, Jensen is pretty 5) he just can't escape the hell, devil, possession, psychopath shit, can he? Okay, honestly, it wasn't as terrible as I was expecting it to be, but I had some pretttttty low expectations. Jensen was about the only good thing in it, and I'm glad he was the star because if he'd only shown up in a couple of scenes, I don't know that I could've gotten through it. I loved all his little bb psychopath moments. Had to hide my eyes when he was cutting off his tongue, though. D: I came out of that movie just wanting someone to edit together that footage with SPN footage to make a video about young!Dean. It fits pretty well, right?

I've seen New York Minute (ridiculous, but I grew up watching Mary Kate & Ashley movies, so that wasn't as terrible as I thought it would be), so next up is Christmas Cottage. I will admit, I don't have high hopes. lol sorry, Jared, it just doesn't look like my type of movie. I do like Thomas Kinkade in real life, though. I will give it a shot.

How awesome was SPN 8.02, btw? FUCKING AWESOME. Can't wait for the next one. Is it Wednesday yet?

Other things: I keep calling the job to find out the schedule for my training and they keep not calling me back. UGH, I WANT TO START ALREADY. Hopefully I'm about to pick up another job, though: teaching kids robotics like I did this summer, except year-round. Yay? Yay money and robots, at least. And finally, I'm trying to get back in the habit of checking my f-list and posting here, so keep on top of me to do that. In the meantime, you know where to find me (on twitter. always. constantly. forever.). Oh, I'm writing a bit more too. Trying to finish a kink_bingo fic that keeps growing. Hopefully I can wrap that up soon. And who's excited for NaNoWriMo? I think I'm settling on an idea, now I just want to START it. \o/

Yesterday was my birthday! It was pretty great, just sat around reading fic for most of the day. I still have no job. BUT my film, which was indeed finished, was accepted into a film festival in Sacramento! I am SO EXCITED. \o/!!!! Heading down there mid-August for that, hopefully I can do a lot of networking and talking to people. Still need a job. D:

I have totally failed at keeping up with LJ, I'm sorry. /o\ I really do need to get better about it, I miss LJ. Twitter is still my home, at the moment. In my absence from LJ, I forgot to mention here that I have posted fic! You probably already saw it if you're on twitter or subscribe to me on AO3.

The first, written with [livejournal.com profile] sulwen, is the first part of the mpreg omega fic we've been talking about for aaaaages. Adam as the pack's Alpha, Tommy as the only fertile Omega. Kinks include knotting, obviously, and dubcon that goes with the trope, as well as mpreg, underage sex, and some incest (more of that to come in future parts). Born This Way

The second is some very off the cuff Jared/Jensen porn with some of my usual kinks: D/s, comeplay, breathplay... But it's basically fluff. First time really trying out writing J2, which I hope to do lots more. Oh, Baby, Baby

And finally, I wanted to say that [livejournal.com profile] sulwen and I have found our next big passion project. We're getting a very early start on next year's spn_j2_bigbang... which is still posting right now for this year, sign ups won't even open for a while yet. But we're REALLY EXCITED. We've been messing around with a lot of ideas, even some original fic, outlining and dabbling and brainstorming, but nothing has felt URGENT in the way this idea does. It's really really great to have that need to tell a story again. And it's probably a good thing we're starting early because lol we can already tell this is gonna be looooong. :D We definitely feel better this way than doing what we did with LBB, jumping into it at the last minute with a 160k fic and not getting it beta'd until like, the day before posting... hahaha hopefully with starting this far in advance, things will fall into place a little easier.

ps: my Jack is the cutest puppy in the entire world, I swear.

NEWS!

Jun. 24th, 2012 02:48 pm
silentdescant: (Default)
Biggest bit of news: I graduated from SCAD. \o/ This is awesome, obviously, but I already have mixed feelings because damn, I miss school. Well, not yet, but it hasn't sunk in that I won't be going back, so I feel like I still have classes to take, you know? I feel like it's just summer break. But I graduated, I won't be going back (not there, anyway; if I go to grad school at some point, it'll be somewhere else). [livejournal.com profile] undersea Came down a few days before and stayed with me, and we got to sit next to each other during the morning ceremony, which was really cool. Our families also got to meet, we all hung out and had dinner together, and our moms got along like... well, pick a similie.

My grandparents on both sides also came down, and we stayed at a beach house on Tybee Island after I moved out of my apartment (bye, great apartment! bye, independence! ;_____;), and from there my mom and I went up to Atlanta for a week or so to get all my stuff and a couple cars shipped to Seattle. The cars arrived a couple days ago and the rest of my stuff arrived today, and I haven't unpacked at all. For the time being, I'm just at home, job hunting. I don't know how long term I'm staying here... O.o Hopefully not TOO long, because wow, I already miss living alone/with roommates as opposed to my parents, lol.

Additions to the family: I got a puppy!! This has been several months in the making, but it wasn't a sure thing until I finally talked to my family about it right around graduation, when he came available to adopt. He was seized in a hoarding case or something and was basically tied up in legal stuff until the case finally closed--earlier than expected, which meant my sister had to adopt him for me right after graduation before I got to Seattle (I thought I would be home by the time he was available). He's a little long-haired chihuahua, VERY fluffy, black and white with black around his eyes that makes him look kind of pissed off all the time, even though he's the happiest little puppy ever. (I keep saying puppy, but he's like 2 years old. Just tiny.) I (re)named him Jack, and I call him all sorts of stupid, ridiculous names, and he got used to me pretty fast, sticks to me like glue, all that sort of stuff. \o/ My sister's also getting a new puppy (in addition to Dazzle and Peanut, who both live with her at school already), but she won't be available to adopt until August. LOTS OF DOGS. Fortunately, she goes back to school (with all three dogs) in late August, which will leave me with just Jack.

Fandom news! The biggest fandom news is that I have a new fandom now. Supernatural! Which I haven't posted about AT ALL, because I have basically avoided livejournal for MONTHS. I haven't even been on except to read fic, pretty much. Haven't even read my flist. /o\ I'M SO SORRY, I want to do better about that. Twitter's basically my main social outlet at the moment, even though half the shit I read there annoys me these days. lol

BUT, SUPERNATURAL. AND SPN RPS. So here's how it went[livejournal.com profile] sulwen came to visit me in Savannah over spring break (St Patrick's Day, yay parade and drunkeness!) and forced me to watch the pilot episode. I was immediately hooked and we watched all the way into season 2 before she left. Then after she left, I continued watching NONSTOP until I caught up with the middle of season 7, which I watched as it aired. And until I had to pack up my TV, I KEPT watching spn nonstop, rewatching my favorite episodes and sequences of episodes and rewatching my favorites AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN, and right now I'm going into WITHDRAWAL. Luckily the CW and TNT both have iPad apps that can stream episodes, I just can't choose which episodes I wanna see. BUT I DON'T EVEN CARE RIGHT NOW, I just need my spn fix.

Dean is pretty much my favorite character on TV now. There's lots of thinky-thought reasons, but one very superficial reason is that Jensen Ackles is seriously pretty. I got my Jensen fix last night as I made my parents watch Ten Inch Hero (which has become my feel-good movie, and my mom enjoyed it too, yay). So that leads me to SPN RPS! Jensen and Jared as a fic pairing are as happy and fluffy as Sam and Dean are angsty and fucked up, it's pretty great. I've been reading SO MUCH FIC, lots of rps while I was still catching up with episodes, and I just recently started reading actual plotty spn fic now that season 7 has ended. SO MUCH ANGST. SO MUCH KINK. SO MUCH EXCELLENT, AMAZING FIC. Seriously, some of the fic I've read recently has been the best fic I've EVER READ. In any fandom. I had no idea the fic would be this good. I love it. Annnnnnnd I got into the fandom/finished school just in time for the gigantic spn_j2_bigbang to start posting. \o/!!! I love Sam and Dean and John and Jared and Jensen and Jeff and Misha and just EVERYBODY, it's all amazing and I'm so so so so happy rolling around in a new to me fandom.

Other fandom news: I've seen Avengers several times and LOVED IT, and Clint/Hawkeye is my favorite (UNF HOT) and he needs his own movie okay. I've been reading some good Clint/Natasha and I've always loved Tony Stark so I like him in fic, and Clint/Loki is some fucked up awesomeness. Haven't done a lot of exploring in that fandom, though, just read what I've seen recced. Other fandom stuff: Adam's album is amazing and I love it (I don't think I ever talked about that, SORRY LIVEJOURNAL), and I may be in the minority but I fucking love Tommy with his pink hair. I love Tommy full stop, really, but you already knew that. :D MCR is fairly quiet, which means my epic mcr feelings are fairly quiet at the moment, but Frank on twitter continues to be a delight, so that's always a good thing.

Plans for the foreseeable future include: seeing Brave now that my sister is back from Cuba, seeing Avengers again with her, seeing other movies as they come up, forcing my family to watch spn so I can talk about ALL OF MY FEELINGS aloud, and search for jobs. Search for a gazillion jobs. SIGH. I also want to get back to writing. My film is done, I just need to get those DVDs ready to send out, and I finally have some time to go back to writing, YAY. I have so many things planned with [livejournal.com profile] sulwen, you guys have NO IDEA. :DDDD

Missed you guys. Gonna try to get back in the habit of reading my flist and posting updates here. But really, if you wanna keep up with me, follow me on twitter. @silentdescant!
silentdescant: (save my soul)
Well, it is a new year. It is the year of graduation and jobs and a new place to live. It is also the year of new music and tour from Adam, which I am REALLY excited about. I don't expect new music from MCR, but I'm still holding out hope for videos and comics and whatever else those boys come up with (I can't imagine they'll hibernate for long). I want to do things like eat healthier and lose weight (I did both this past year, but it's hard to stick to, and I want to get better at the sticking to it part). I also want to be more social (I definitely started that this past year, but I can do better), and meet some online friends, now that I know some people in kind-of-my area. I want to write more, although that sounds silly when you read onto this next bit of the post. I want to write some original fic, though, and that's always hard to stick to, for me.

But check this out. I was going to do that end of the year fic meme that I saw a couple people fill out, but it wasn't working for me, so I just tallied things up instead. I wrote and posted 46 fics, two of which were co-written with [livejournal.com profile] sulwen (and one of those was for the sick!Frank challenge at [livejournal.com profile] yobrothatssick). One was a 41k fic for [livejournal.com profile] lambliffbigbang and one was a 25k fic for [livejournal.com profile] bandombigbang. 15 fics were for the summer fill fest at [livejournal.com profile] glam_kink (and they're having a new year fill fest now, you should check that out). But this is the really shocking (to me) part: my wordcount totals.

solo posted fic: 122,053
posted fic with [livejournal.com profile] sulwen: 20,883
(which brings my total posted fic to 142,936 words)

But that's not all. I mean, I am SHOCKED that I wrote more than 120k this year on my own. But listen to this. [livejournal.com profile] sulwen and I were both signed up for LBB again, and we both had problems with our fics, and on the very same day, we both planned to drop out of the challenge (which I hate doing). So to keep from dropping out, we teamed up and started outlining the fic we had both dreamed of, the one nobody would ever in a million years write for us. This was in October. Since then (and the fic is only about 80% finished so far), we have written about 124,500 words together on it. That's almost the same as I wrote solo all year. My mind was blown. Especially once I added all my writing solo and with her together: 267,436. That is a fucking ridiculous amount of words, you guys. I'm pretty pleased. It's hard for me to even remember writing all those fics earlier in the year, because our LBB took over my life, and I can't even think about what it was like before it wasn't a part of my life. That and all our notfic which we desperately want to write but can't until LBB is finished. Finding an amazing writing partner is pretty much the best thing ever. We are constantly inspired to write more.

So for the new year, the pressure is on. We have to finish our LBB by our posting date in January, and we each have a [livejournal.com profile] bandomreversebb fic to work on, and I have to get everything together to shoot my film in February (and March). And then I have to find a job and a place to live and graduate, holy fuck. More immediately: I have to pack. I've been home since Thanksgiving and I'm heading back to Savannah at ass o'clock in the morning tomorrow. Then all that other shit can start.

Overall, I think it's been a great year. But I have high hopes for this next one. :)


btw, all of my bandom and glam fic is up at archive of our own, and all my cowritten fic with [livejournal.com profile] sulwen is and will be posted there exlusively. I will probably keep posting solo fic there and here on lj for the foreseeable future. If I ever get the time, I'll work on transferring all my lotrips fic over to AO3 as well, so everything can be in one place, but who knows when that will happen. :P

I did the voice meme thing everyone's been doing! It's super cool to hear everyone's voices. I've been bad about leaving comments since I do most shit on my phone, but I'm listening! Wanna hear me ramble for 15 minutes? :D

The Questions:
1. What's your username and is there a story behind it?
2. Where are you from and where do you live now?
3. What are you wearing? Yes, I am hitting on you.
4. How long have you been in bandom? How did you get into it?
5. Which bands are your favorites?
6. Which band members are your favorites?
7. Have you seen any of them in concert? Any fun stories or memories to share?
8. Do you have an OTP? What is it, and why do you love it?
9. What story do you wish someone would write?
10. Are you working on something for bandom right now? Tell us a little bit about it.
11. You've got fic open somewhere on your computer right now, don't lie. So go to one of your open tabs or word documents or whatever, and read us a couple of lines.
12. Say these words: Iero, haberdashery, LOLcat, flist, dirigible, halcyon, nemesis, ephemeral, languorous

Bandom Voice Meme 2 by silentdescant

I had to split it in two because it cut me off in the middle! Bad soundcloud. Listening back to it, I don't think I said "ridiculous" at all, which is crazy because I say that word like a million times a day. Wow! I do say "like" and "super" and "awesome" a lot, oops. Voice posts are cool, I kind of want to do them more often. I like rambling about shit (even though I do get off track way easily).

Happy Thanksgiving!! My dad is out skiing and my sister is... still in bed, I think. Or playing with puppies. I'm recording the parade for us to watch later over Chinese food or something. /laziest family

silentdescant: (consigliere)
I COULDN'T RESIST. /o\ i bring this upon myself.

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started (or during the story if there's a good break), and I'll write you however many words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

my fics can be found on archive of our own or at my fanfic tag because my fic index hasn't been updated in ages, lol.


ps: i am going to atlanta for that young playwrights festival. FUCK YEAHHHH. thank you for all your comments before. <333

so... I decided to do that WIP meme I've seen going around, where you post a single line from a fic with no context. uh. this is gonna be long. I have a lot of WIPs. LOL I'm just gonna do the ones that are actual fics, though, not the ones that are random bits and pieces that have no actual plot, or the ones that are just outlines. Glam fics first, then MCR. random order, otherwise. wow, there's a lot here.

Post 1 line from your WIPs, no context, just one sentence:

GLAM - 16 fics, lol )


MCR - 31 fics omg )


so what can we learn from these? I WRITE A LOT OF ANGST. Frank and Tommy get hurt a lot. LOL some of these fics will probably never be finished and/or posted, jsyk. a few aren't fit for the public, lol.
silentdescant: (Default)
Okay, so as some of you probably know, I'm in a playwriting class right now (and it is awesome), and we basically bring in scenes every class period and read them and critique them, and talk about writing processes and techniques and do some workshopping and basically it's the most fun class ever. BUT anyway, today we were talking about an article about like, people being afraid to write politically-driven plays, and afraid to touch certain topics, and afraid to break out of their shell, that sort of thing. And it got me thinking! Not just about that, because we also did some interesting outlining excersizes. So.... RAMBLING AHEAD. Lots of thinky thoughts about my own writing and stuff. But I really really want to hear about YOUR processes, because this is all very fascinating to me.

blah blah blah I talk a lot )

I thiiiiink I'm just about talked out (thank god, right?). I kind of feel like there was another writing topic I wanted to address, but now I can't remember, and I don't want to get too disjointed and rambly (even more than this already is). I want to hear about your experiences! Your processes! Your hopes and dreams and inspirations! EVERYTHING. I love hearing about how writers work. Tell me things. :)
silentdescant: (join the black parade)
I've read some good stuff recently, but here's a few specific fics I want to mention. First, Knickpoint, which is Arthur/Eames for the prompt "barebaking for the first time". It's super hot, and I really like these characterizations, even though it is a little fluffier than my usual preferences (which is great for you guys, since nobody likes anything as depressing as I like it). Secondly, just because a man visits another man doesn't mean they're doing anything illegal (yet), which is also Arthur/Eames, and is very funny. Snappy dialogue and adorable imagery. And finally, a couple of Adam/TommyJoe fics: Scenic Route, because it has some of the long, drawn-out stuff I've been craving even though Tommy doesn't quite have a gay freakout, and The Boat That Would Row You Back, Carefully, because it's Dom/sub but not explicit, and it's really very very sweet. There's more recs at my delicious, of course, but those are a few that stood out.

I haven't been doing a whole lot except reading fic the past couple of days, because getting into two new fandoms at once is exhausting and there's so much to catch up on. Of course, with Inception, it seems like fics are just appearing out of nowhere at some kind of truly epic rate, and I can't even keep up with that alone (not all these fics are any good, though). With Adam and Tommy, it's more finding good fics that are maybe a little older.

But I have been doing something! Last night I really bit the bullet and started writing my werewolfbb fic, because lol I only had like two hundred words written in a notebook somewhere, and between last night and this afternoon, I've actually gotten a fair amount done! I'm just about up to 3k already, which is both good and bad because yay, closer to the minimum wordcount, but oh man, how long is this fic gonna be? I miiiight need to talk through my plot with someone soon, because I don't really have an ending planned out yet, so if anyone wants to talk about bandom werewolves? :D? Let me know. If I get a handle on this fic (and get a plot idea) maybe I can attempt the Inception bigbang. O.o

But besides that, I've just been sitting around reading fic and snuggling the little fluffmonster I have dubbed "lil dude". I think I mentioned that he's super shy, right? Well in the past couple of days, he's had a breakthrough and will now run around all over the house and explore things and LET PEOPLE TOUCH HIM! He is so soft and tiny. *______* He's still kind of a weirdo, but he lets me pick him up and pet him and snuggle him sometimes, which is quite awesome. \o/ HE IS SO FUCKING CUTE I CAN'T STAND IT. I wanna keep him. Except he's a boy and I don't really like boy dogs. :\

I am having conflicty conflicted thoughts about relationships and that nonsense, but that's nothing new, so I'll let it stew for a little while longer before rambling about it on here. I don't really want to filter this post, since it has fic recs.
silentdescant: (so long and goodnight)
HEY GUYS. The first BBB fic I did art for has been posted! Working for Joy on Overtime, by the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] ciel_vert and [livejournal.com profile] theopteryx. I'm super excited to read the finished fic, because it was already really good when I read it the first time, and that was with scenes missing. So go check it out, because a Frank/Gerard Pretty Woman AU is just what this fandom needs right now. :D

My flist is fairly incestuous, though, and you all probably already know about this fic being posted. I love you guys.


In other BBB fic-related news, I've sent mine off to my beta and I've got all the kinks with the mix I received worked out, and everything is awesome. I just need to find time to finish and code everything around my cousin's graduation (tomorrow) and my sister's graduation (next week) and my grandparents being in town all the time between. Not much else happened today. My life is boring.


ps: I started reading Ours Is A Criminal And Uncouth Love earlier today and I've only read the first part and a half, but I already want to rec it. Frank/Bob, kinky and sexy and angsty prisonfic, my kind of thing. :P

hey guys!

OKAY, so I am at my grandparents' house, aka the place with no cell signal, but I got my laptop hooked up to their wireless and that is pretty sweet. \o/

SO I SIGNED UP FOR HC_BINGO!

here is my card. )

so now I have a kink_bingo card (and I've started a couple of ficlets for that already), and a hc_bingo card, and monaboyd_month to write by the end of the month, and a bbb to edit and post by the end of the month. \o/ \o/ \o/ I got my art and mix and stuff for it, and that's pretty awesome. I haven't listened to my mix yet, but I shall do that tonight. I'm excited. \o/ (lots of \o/ emoticons today, hahaha.)

oh hey also, monaboyd_month stuff has been posting, and today is [livejournal.com profile] kiltsandlollies's day, and so far she's done a couple of picspams, and she does the best picspams, and if anyone wants to know why I ADORE Billy/Dom (friendship or slash), check this one out. *_______* OH MY BOYS. ♥_________♥ I have a type, can you tell? obnoxious boys who make epic hearteyes at slightly-less-obnoxious boys.

in other news, I had a great girl-talk with my aunt last night, which was awesome. she's super religious but she knows I'm not so she tries not to push anything on me, which is great. we went out to the mall today and there were SO MANY PRETTY DRESSES. I think I will need to go shopping once I get back to Seattle. (two days!)

I'm behind on Glee and Doctor Who, but I just downloaded both to watch tonight/tomorrow. yay! (yay computer + internet, yaaaaay, I can't live without you, Jeeves, never leave me.)

hey hey sup hey

i got a kink_bingo card. it is here:

card! )

idk, this is a really random post. i cut out paper stuff and helped teresa build obstacles for a pre-FLL lego type game. it was interesting because apparently the makers don't believe in good instructions, and they don't know how to make sturdy paper structures. we took a bit of creative license and made everything better. then we made oragami whales and stars and a box to put the stars it, it's pretty cute.

there's an AC guy here fixing things, and I HOPE I HOPE I HOPE he is just about done. it's actually not too bad today, but it is a little sticky with all the humidity. hopefully we'll be sleeping better tonight.

this is like the most wired family ever, they have about a million computers. and one just stays up hooked into the audio system with pandora or itunes running. it's neat.

hi hi how are you allllllll? here, how 'bout you leave me prompts/pairings to go with the kink bingo things and i might try to write something? you guys know what pairings (FRANK) and fandoms i like. :P

heeeeey.

so HEY, guess WHAT.

LAST NIGHT i stayed up really late.

why?

to hit 20k.

so i did.

i'm going to write more this morning, and then go draw a naked guy, and then sit around fiddling with sliders on the mixing board at the theatre. last dress rehearsal! show opens tomorrow night!

sorry i've been so faily at commenting lately. :(
silentdescant: (consigliere)
The deadline for bbb drafts is a week from Friday. I'm not at 20k yet, and I'm even further away from having a semi-complete draft, so I need to get my ass in gear. But I thought I would procrastinate post this little picspam of inspirational things that relate to my story. There's a few bandom pictures in here, but mostly it's things I found on tumblr or inspireplease. All, surprisingly, safe for work.

silentdescant: (mikeyway)
drawing! today was supposed to be our final grade day for this first pose, but we did the critique and then he gave us another week to fix it up even more. \o/? I really don't have a lot to do with mine. darken a few things, straighten my horizon line, that's about it. I was actually impressed with the progress a lot of other people made; there were some pretty impressive drawings up on the wall. of course, there were also a bunch of crappy ones. :\ anyway, then we started our next drawing, which is our relining/foreshortened pose, and we have a male model this time. I'm not sure whether to be disappointed or glad that from my angle I can't even see his dick. :P here's my sketch of the pose, which I think is a really great pose, and one that I imagine a lot.

had to rush back and drop off my shit to get to practicum on time. I got there like 5 minutes late (not that it matters to them), and helped carry a ladder into the theatre, and then Jeremy came in and told us all we weren't needed and could go home and still count our three hours. so I worked for about 2 minutes and got dismissed with full credit. FUCK YEAH. damn practicum. hahahahahaha fucking practicum.

I finally finished reading [livejournal.com profile] dancinbutterfly's bbb fic, You Know What They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison. there's a lot of pairings I don't normally read--hell, a lot of characters I don't normally read--but it's a really engaging, angsty story, and Frank's in the mafia so you know I couldn't resist that. I got totally into all of the storylines even though I usually don't get invested in characters other than MCR, so you should check it out because it's really good.

I need to read a play and a chapter of my textbook tonight (fuck, it's already almost 1am), and I haven't worked on my bbb in forever so I need to get in gear there, BUT. I want to do this meme. it's the DVD Commentary Meme! Ask me stuff, I can talk about writing for... a long time.

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

I just now updated my index, so all my fics are here.

fun stuff

that icon meme everybody's doing. except it works better when you guys do it because YOU ALL HAVE MORE ICONS THAN ME ;____; but I will try to make do. I used more than one for a few questions because I didn't want any of my icons feeling left out. :P

meme! )


recs!
- with the lights on has a bigbang sequel: down to the water. girl!Gee/Frank, sooooo amazing. lots of Frank not knowing how to help, and that's really all he wants, is to help. I just reread the first one, too, and nnngh that's good. super hot sex, and I love both of them as characters. I wish I could say this is the best porn I've read recently, because it is amazing, but the problem is that I've read some other really awesome porn and then I couldn't decide. I will just say that it's the best het porn I've read recently.
- some really awesome historical fluffy backstory to go with I Was Your Silver Lining. knowing what happens next in the timeline is kind of heartbreaking, but this little glimpse is so great, how they're just so young and in love and happy. that makes me smile. :)
- also I reread To Cast Turpentine Kisses last night, because bandom needs moar kinkfic and nnngh it is so good. hello, awesome D/s relationship PLUS teacher/student angst. kiiind of makes me want to pick up (and catch up) lotruniversity again. (why was kink so abundant in lotrips but so hard to find in bandom? not fair!)
- another two fics I reread because I wanted something kinky: As Mine See It, where FRANK WEARS A COLLAR IN PUBLIC, okay, I love this fic a lot, and also Burn, where Frank is a total size queen and it is really hot.
- [livejournal.com profile] bexless posted a fic today and that is always exciting. kind of a crossover with American Idol and MCR, even though that isn't much of a crossover and is just more like real life. but anyway, it's Adam Lambert/Frank/Gerard, and don't worry, the OTP is still very much intact, and it is basically just SUPER HOT because it is set during Projekt Revolution when Frank was for all intents and purposes in heat. Pinch Hitter. it's hot.

plus, okay, she has a really great primer picspam to explain the situation. and I don't know about you guys, but I loooove primer picspams (and I hope people will make more once we start getting new pictures), and I'm always tickled by the way Bex explains all these people to newcomers. plus, nnngh Frank and Gee need to get on stage asap. PLUS it keeps flashing through my mind, all the times they've said that ProRev was their favorite tour and they had the time of their lives (while groping and kissing each other--oh hey, did you know Gerard got MARRIED during all that as well?!) and how it kind of got back to being fun again, and sorry but I just need to flail for a moment because OMG I hope they remember that when they start touring again. because seriously, it was the best for us too.

also I know I've mentioned rereading unholyverse about a million times but I will rec that fic forever, to anyone, because it is one of my absolute favorites. and okay yes, not all of these fics are new, but they are all good and they're some of what I've been reading recently while waiting for the mcr bigbangs to be posted.

so yesterday I didn't work on my big bang but I wrote 2k of something else so I feel kind of accomplished! probably won't get much done today since I need to actually do homework for tomorrow, and today I also have PRACTICUM UGH UGH UGH right after drawing class. I really hope it will not be torture. (ugh practicummmmmm)

ALSO here are a couple pictures I uploaded for [livejournal.com profile] desfinado of Frank being a snuggle-whore, to go with the picspam theme of Frank being tiny and manhandled and subby, which is basically my favorite theme in the history of ever.

frank is my favorite )

title: Hotel AU
pairing: Billy/Dom
rating: PG-13
words: 3300
warning: discontinued WIP (sorry), shifting POV, Dom having a bit of a stutter
summary: They work at a hotel in the middle of nowhere. Various things go wrong right before an important guest is scheduled to arrive.
disclaimer: very very untrue and unfinished.
a/n: I remember asking for a hotel AU a while back, and I couldn't remember if it was lotrips or bandom; I couldn't even remember if I'd written it or not. Well, apparently I did write it, or at least part of it. I'm not going to finish it, though, and I actually kinda like it, so that's why I'm posting it here. These are mostly just disconnected scenes of a much more involved story. Even though I wrote a little outline in this document, I don't remember the sequence of all the mishaps, so these scenes jump around a bit; I tried to put them in some semblance of logical order.


Dom spotted Billy just as he was about to dip his fingers into the sweet, creamy chicken sauce. He dove for the counter and slapped Billy‚Äôs hand away. )

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. If you absolutely can't write, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to offer drawings or icons or something instead.

o1. [livejournal.com profile] strobelighted, Frank/Gerard
o2. [livejournal.com profile] wonder_walldbc, Toro's thighs
o3. [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow, Mikey/Alicia sharing clothes

ALSO! Ask me one fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom-specific, crossover, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general. Favorite character, favorite moment, unpopular opinion, something about a fic of mine... whatever. Wackiness encouraged.

ALSO ALSO! [livejournal.com profile] no_tags authors REVEALED! I adored pretty much everything I read (which was basically all the MCR ones), so here's a list of, uh, pretty much everything I read, in no particular order.

list of fics and their authors! )

And now I can tell you that I wrote the Frank/Jamia/Gerard pegging fic, Toys to Play With. Which apparently is kinda hot? IDK, I WAS SURPRISED BY THE COMMENTS, I HONESTLY WAS. Thanks, guyssss. (And I'll be reposting the fic here at some point.)

eta: Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer are officially engaged. &HEARTSSSSS;

OH MY GOD IT'S TIME FOR [livejournal.com profile] bandombigbang AGAIN! I'm ridiculously excited, even though I don't know what I'm going to write. I signed up for Wave Two, because 1) it gives me a bit more time and I'm not afraid of the higher wordcount, and 2) the deadlines actually fit into my calendar a bit better. I'm still thinking about signing up to do art as well, but I keep going back and forth. It would be fun, but I don't even know what I'm writing yet, or how intensive it will be towards the end, but art probably won't take me AGES to finish, but all the deadlines coincide with writer deadlines so I'd need to be on the ball... I really kinda want to do it, though. :| :| :|

I chatted with [livejournal.com profile] wonder_walldbc about my screenplay idea, and got to talking about BBB as well, and I convinced her to go ahead and sign up too. I might possibly continue to write my NaNo fic, which was mainly Frank/Jamia, orrrr I might drag another old WIP out of my fathomless file of unfinished fic, or I might try to write something new, I don't know. I'm leaning towards the Frank/Jamia fic, though. Or one of the others. Maybe the slave one, I love that fic. :D :D :D I AM SO EXCITED. We're now discussing her plot ideas. I'm excited for her fic too. :D :D :D :D :D I love BBB season.

This has reminded me, however, that the [livejournal.com profile] no_tags deadline is coming up REALLY FUCKING FAST and I haven't even gotten to the meat of my fic yet. I'm probably just under halfway. Just need to get my ass in gear. There's absolutely no reason for me to be procrastinating on this fic. And yet I am.

I've been struggling with an idea for my screeplay class for three days, and I think Megan and I finally got something solid I can move forward with. Or at least approach my professor with. All the other ideas I had were just ideas, and not plots, which is my whole problem. When I'm writing fic, I get an idea and I write it, and as I develop the characters, the plot naturally comes out. For this class, he wants us to plan everything out beforehand, and I don't normally work that way, so coming up with the plot first was hard. But I've got something I like, so I think I'm good.

I do still need to write a little tiny webisode script for my lighting and field class, but that only needs to be like, 5 pages or something super short like that. And it only needs to be episode 1 of a series which we don't have to write. heh. :\ LOTS OF WRITING TO GET DONE. I still need to 1) read my screenplay book and 2) write a book report on it, but that deadline is very flexible; the guy just said "get it done, uh... when you have time..." because he knows nobody likes reading textbooks. lol

Ben's shoot went well; hung out with him and [livejournal.com profile] undersea after, and even chatted with her a bit once I got back to my room (I'm amused by this, since we're just a parking lot away from each other), and I'm sorta planning on going to improv with them tomorrow night. If things go well.

ETA: Frank is the most ridiculously adorable ever.
