oh, man, what am I even up to these days?

1) reading books with pages! I am in the middle of, like, five different books right now, which is simultaneously stressful and delightful. The frontrunner for stuff I am likely to finish soon is definitely Embassytown by China Miéville, which is weird and wonderful and absolutely insane in the face, like everything Miéville writes. Is anybody else reading it?

Next up after that will be...probably the new Jim Butcher, once I walk down the block to get it from where it was misdelivered, and then possibly Kavalier & Clay, on J's recommendation, but maybe Blackout and then All Clear instead - I read the first one when it came out, but I want to reread it before I read the second one. BASICALLY I AM SPOILED FOR CHOICE, and also if you want to talk about books / recommend me books / hear my thoughts about books, I am ALL OVER THAT NONSENSE.

2) cleaninnnnnnng. It is honestly kind of disgusting how much of a housewife I am, but god damn do I love flitting around the house in my nightie and tidying all of the things. Not that it does a damn bit of good, since Lilu McFuzzerton continues to shed like a motherfucker no matter what I do, but it makes me feel productive.

3) Mario. I am SO BAD at it, but god I love it.

4) writing! I KNOW RIGHT, god, I haven't written anything at all in waaaaaaay longer than I care to admit, with the exception of yuletides, but yesterday I wrote a thing! and posted it! and then lj went down like a poorly-constructed POS. w/e w/e, it's on the Archive too (as is all of my fic, now! \o/?), and so if you are into Pride and Prejudice and also crossdressing you should check it out: to pass for a lady,—only think what fun!, Mr&Mrs Darcy, (fairly tame) crossdressing.

(Somewhere in the space-time continuum, my childhood self is APPALLED and has no idea why. SORRY, TEENIE!M. LIFE IS ROUGH.)

5) It's not a list without five things, but fuck if I know what I want to say. Today I will cook with peanut butter (rainbow peanut noodles and also peanut butter cookies), beat the last boss on level two FUCK YEAH, and add a few hundred words to the make-charles-xavier-less-of-a-douchebag story. LOFTY GOALS ALL.

and then, what do you think we did? We dressed up Chamberlayne in women's clothes, on purpose to pass for a lady,—only think what fun! )

So there was a yuletide! And I participated this year, which I never had before, and it was simultaneously terrifying and awesome, but mostly awesome! Especially once I remembered that, oh, hey, somebody's writing a story for me, too!

That story was A Measure of Devotion, by blackclaude, and it was amaaaaaaaaazing. *flails and glees* It's Whip It! fic, and it's Bliss! and Pash! being loldorably codependent and slightly faily (but ultimately triumphant!) bffs-in-love! ♥

I also wrote a story, with much tearing of hair and gnashing of teeth, and that story was always, division, for The City & The City, written for [livejournal.com profile] tronella. It was...not really the fandom I would have chosen to write—apparently this is the Yuletide way?—because lol intimidatingly involved worldbuilding, but in the end I was pretty pleased with the result! Morbid and creepifying for the win! :D? :D?

And, yes. Happy yuletide, everybody, and whatever other holidays you celebrate. I myself am celebrating today with LAZINESS; tomorrow will be a festival of SHENANIGANS and gay movies and dooting around in the outside world (where there is SNOW! *_____* ).

not real! never happened! don't google yourself or those you love!

FACT: this story was sparked when [livejournal.com profile] lordessrenegade and I were talking about Pete/Patrick/Ashlee threesomes and how badly we wanted to read some. FACT: this story actually got going when [livejournal.com profile] loveyouallwrong IMed me one night and told me to tell her a story. FACT: this story would have been lost forever at least twice, except that [livejournal.com profile] angelsaves had chatlogs and saved my sorry ass.

FACT: all three of these wonderful ladies made this story happen, mostly by letting me write it at them a few hundred words at a time and then hounding me until I wrote more. &enablers;

FACT: [livejournal.com profile] impertinence read it over once it was all finished and assured me that it actually made sense to somebody who hadn't been reading along as I wrote it. ♥

FACT: [livejournal.com profile] longtime_lurker was kind enough to braindump a lot of Pete&Ashlee canon on me. All mistakes and fabrications are mine and not hers!

FACT: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] quettaser in a holiday fic exchange. UM. I hope this is what you were looking for? It kind of got away from me somewhere in the middle. /o\

Notes: This story is entirely the fault of [livejournal.com profile] shoemaster, who is a VILE ENABLER and, as usual, hounded me until this was done. ILU and your maple fist, bb! Thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] loveyouallwrong, who read it over and helped my figure out the transit aspects, and to [livejournal.com profile] angelsaves and [livejournal.com profile] lordessrenegade and any of the other usual suspects who got spammed with bits of this during the writing process. You're the best. ♥

Written for [livejournal.com profile] bayleaf, who knows why.

OBLIGATORY DISCLAIMER: not real, never happened, i am making all of this up for fun and to keep [livejournal.com profile] shoemaster entertained, and not for purposes of profit. DON'T READ STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE YOU KNOW IN REAL LIFE.

Band(s): MCR
Pairing(s): Frank/Gerard
Word Count: 26,000
Rating/Warnings: R, but only barely
Author Notes: Babies and associated ridiculousness. NOT REAL. NEVER HAPPENED.

This story would absolutely not exist with out the handholding, encouragement, badgering, and all-around awesomeness of [livejournal.com profile] shoemaster, so you should feel free to blame her for everything. Thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] angelsaves, [livejournal.com profile] lordessrenegade, [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o and [livejournal.com profile] strobelighted, who all let me flail at them about this story and send them bits and pieces to squeak about. Finally, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] bexless, who somehow got conned into beta-ing this monstrosity, and pointed out countless stupid errors.

You are my very very favorites, dears. FAVORITES.

"Hey, Ma," Mikey says. "No, everything's fine—well, I mean, Gerard accidentally adopted a baby—no, he's changing her now, he can't talk." Gerard flips him off, but Mikey just settles further into the couch. Gerard pouts, then looks up at Frank.

"Frankie," he says, and Frank shakes his head.

"Sorry, man," he says. "But as the one sane person on this entire bus, I'm pretty sure my official job is to watch and laugh."

part two
etben: flowers and sky (i am a visitor here)
I started this...back in February, I guess? And then got about fifty words from the actual end and said, "well, fuck. how does this end?"

And then this past weekend I mentioned it to [livejournal.com profile] fox1013, who took a look at it and said, "well, look, you just need a little bit more, see—" and then I wrote it! and it was done! Which just goes to show that my whole "here's what I'm writing; guilt me into finishing things!" process is totally valid.

SHHHHH IT'S TOTALLY THE 27TH NOW.

This story owes basically EVERYTHING EVER to [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o, who let me write it at her in chat and then said, "right, great, now make the ending not suck," and then, when I sent it back to her again, said, "okay, yeah, better, but can it not suck?" Everything awesome in here was her idea; I'm seriously not kidding. Thanks also to my other three favorite ladies, [livejournal.com profile] angelsaves and [livejournal.com profile] shoemaster and [livejournal.com profile] lordessrenegade, who made squeaky noises in all the right places. All four of them deserve pie. Or possibly kittens.

&also: not real, never happened, don't google yourself.


Ultimately, it's all Patrick Stump's fault. )
etben: flowers and sky (PRECIOUS LITTLE FACE)
So once upon a time, I had the following conversation. ) And the more I thought about it, the more I realized that it did, in fact, explain everything. Even, hopefully, this story.



Mysterious Ways
MCR; Frank/Gerard/Lyn-Z, Pete/Mikey/Alicia; rated R
note: genderswap, threesomes, aliens, crack. not real, never happened, don't google yourself or your friends. Read-through by [livejournal.com profile] cool_rain_kiss and [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o; handholding by [livejournal.com profile] angelsaves and [livejournal.com profile] shoemaster; inspired by [livejournal.com profile] lordessrenegade.

IN WHICH the Brothers Way are aliens, Lyn-Z is badass, and everyone else is very, very confused. )
etben: flowers and sky (frank iero)
...I blame [livejournal.com profile] shoemaster. For everything. She stayed online with me for I don't even know how many hours, saying YES AND THEN over and over until I finally wrote this story, and then did it all again as I slogged through the edits. I love her best.

Thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] lordessrenegade, [livejournal.com profile] angelsaves, and [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o for reading this over and assuring me it doesn't suck, and also for being made of SOLID AWESOME.

He only knows her full name because that's how the guitarist introduces her - 'Francesca Antonia Iero, ladies and gentlemen!' - and that's pretty much all he knows. )
etben: flowers and sky (summer camp mania)
So last night I was on IM - well, honestly, I was on IM most of the day, but last night at about 8:30, I started talking to [livejournal.com profile] fox1013. Like I do. And it was fun! Because I said, I want to meta on about summer camp, and [livejournal.com profile] fox1013...enabled. Like she does. So that was fun!

Around 9:30, we got to talking about fannish summer camp AUs, which are - oh my god, people, they are the bread and butter of my very soul. Like - any fic about summer camp is automatically going to my top ten list. Explaining it would take a really long time, and also possibly some strong drink. Just - take it as a given, okay?

And around this time [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o joined the conversation, and we continued on until almost midnight, talking about things like this )

MY POINT BEING: Dear internets, there are many many fandoms that could use some summer-camp AU loving, but the three of us - awesome though we are - are not equal to this task. It falls to you! Take up the torch! Go to your keyboards and give us some good old summer loving. Snippets are welcomed, as are handwavey outline-type-things - basically, we have a craving and want you to FEED US. (and, obviously, more than one snippet per fandom - or one person writing snippets in many fandoms! - is A-OK by us. We are greedy like that.) Just write it, and link one of us when you do, and we will flail all over you.

But we do not come to you empty-handed! We wrote snippets, too, to seed the ground.

I wrote due South, because [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o is the boss of me.

GO GO GADGET FANDOM! Write us summer camp AUs! Make my day! (or, um, if we're on some kind of honesty kick, make my life. You don't even understand.)

Looking back at it during the WIP meme that's been circulating, I realized that, hey! this is actually done. Or I'm willing to say that it's done, which is very nearly the same thing.

The thing is, Eric actually really likes Kara Thrace. )
