So, I have a long overdue fic due to [livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie, because she is made of awesomesauce and made a donation to my Relay for Life campaign in response to this post.

I do have to say, it's a challenge writing for [livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie because she is awesomesauce and I want to write something worthy of her, but nothing I wrote seemed to work for me. And I owe her 1000 words of The Used, bandom babies, with babies clarified as Either Drive A or Dan's unborn daughter Farrah. Since I had trouble, she gets two 500 word ficlets. She's also going to be getting a package in the mail in the next week or so, and her name on a sunshine card that'll be prominently displayed on our banner since she was our very first donor for the year.

The Used & Drive A

Oh my god, Quinn, they're babies! )

Dan + his daughter

Two pink lines on a home test, a second and third just to be sure. )

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie! I'm sorry for the delay, and I appreciate you more than you know. LOVE YOU! <3

Ugh, nightmares and insomnia - why do they exist? So over that shit!

Next time I start feeling all whiny and shit, someone needs to shove me in the direction of [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique's LJ. It's probably wrong on some level that the Brat Prince Verse is happy place fic for me, but that's okay. Also, I owe [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique and [livejournal.com profile] apiphile comments, but the point is that BPV makes me happy.

I'm still playing catchup on drabbles/ficlets. I think it's a forever kind of prospect.

275 words, written for [livejournal.com profile] wook77, prompt: sectumsempra, scars, names

Every scar tells a story, even when the tale is something a person wants to forget. )

225 words, written for [livejournal.com profile] phelixstar, prompt: van-days Bert and Quinn in a battle against the heat/boredom

It is so fucking hot! )

So, I have several posts I've been meaning to make this weekend, and I also got run off the computer already today. I'm hoping to get back on after everyone else goes to bed & finish the awesome fic I'm betareading and get to work on some other things.

In the meantime, how about some long overdue ficlets? Mucho gracias to [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 for looking these over for me.

225 words for [livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie: Jepha, snowflake, tea, scarf

Jeph regularly thought they were getting too old for this shit... )

400 words, [livejournal.com profile] gelsey's rarepair challenge: Draco/Luna; "Each night the moon kisses secretly the lover who counts the stars." -Rumi; whisper, darkness; Somewhere Out There - Linda Rondstadt 

Luna likes the quiet blanket of darkness... ) 

400 words for [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane: Johnny/Evan, honeymoon 

Evan wasn't really a spur-of-the-moment guy... )

200 words for [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000: something Bogart-related about the Discos recording their new album? I'm imagining doggy sounds somehow making their way into the list of weird background noises on this album. 

Spencer had agreed that it was easier... )

600 words for [livejournal.com profile] arielchan: werewolf!Empires 

Sometimes Tom really missed being able to sneak off and sulk in peace... )

HEY, THERE IS GRASS GROWING IN MY BACKYARD!!! Yall probably don't understand how significant this is, but OMG IT IS!!

*points to icon* This applies to each and every one of you on a daily basis, but today it's pretty much reserved for [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique, [livejournal.com profile] strangecreature, & [livejournal.com profile] apiphile.

Holdon's birthday is this week and there is supposed to be a shared birthday party for him tomorrow afternoon, but I just got a phone call that there is going to be a separate small party / cookout for him this afternoon for the other side of the family this afternoon but that he and James would really like it if me and the boys could be there. But my Saturday plans are mostly "clean house" and "grocery shop" and "read fic one of my new books", especially since there's a storm front moving in this afternoon.

Speaking of reading:

1. I didn't get my copy of Dragonsoul because NO ONE IN THE FREAKING VALLEY has it, so it had to be ordered for me. :(


Ours Is a Criminal and Uncouth Love (Prisonverse) by [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique, [livejournal.com profile] strangecreature, & [livejournal.com profile] apiphile
Bandom AU || approximately 54,000 || NC-17 || mainly Frank/Bob
Warnings: some dub-con, buttsex, questionable ethics, legal research done by watching Law and Order and skimming Wikipedia.
Summary: LONG ASS PORN ANGSTY LULZ. And, like, acceptance and personal growth and shit. But mostly ANGST PORN GIGGLES.

I have been waiting for MONTHS for this to be finished, omg. I am gonna have to stay away from the internet so I won't spend the afternoon reading it before I get my actual chores done.

3. Also, I'm waiting on recs from BBB, but I've already heard good things about Possibilities in Basic Space, the zombie!The Used fic by [livejournal.com profile] schneestern. SO EXCITED!!!

Had to go by my daddy beer and cigarettes last night, then spent forever over there while he set off fireworks for the kids in the middle of the street. We were making plans to spend 4th of July weekend at the lake - pig roast & live band & fireworks & all sorts of other nonsense. I'm actually really looking forward to it. I just gotta remember to buy the boys new life vests for the boat b/c they've definitely outgrown the kid sized ones they had last year.

also, we're going on a huge family camping trip the weekend after that, so that's two weekends in a row that I'll be away from civilization with no cell or internet access. Good times? *g*

Oh, and Matt said he'd move to Texas with me and the boys, lol. Seriously, so tempted. <3
why_me_why_not: (Default)
Okay, listen up, yall. There is this verse that I absolutely LOVE, and I know that I've mentioned it here on LJ and also in our email chains and probably if I've had an actual conversation with you recently, but I don't think yall understand the magnitude of my love for this world that [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique and [livejournal.com profile] apiphile have created. (also, what does it say about me that my favorite places these past few months have been [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane's schmoopy Johnny/Evan ideas and BPV, which are two worlds so completely opposite I wouldn't even know where to begin comparing them)

Anyway, the Brat Prince Verse is a series of stories created by [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique and [livejournal.com profile] apiphile, both of whom I love as writers and as friends. Here is the master list of links for the Brat Prince Verse. I should probably also link [livejournal.com profile] jumptheshark's posts on borderline personality disorder and mental illness, which are linked in the master post and which I also plan on including in my updated Author & Beta Resource Guide.

Now, on to an abbreviated version of why I love the 'verse. It is delightedly fucked up. It is probably wrong that I love it as much as I do, and that certain bits of it make me SO FRICKEN HAPPY, but it's okay because I'm not the only one who feels this way. I love that it's bits and pieces of their life together - Mat and Bob and Patrick - and that it's not in chronological order and that it's told from different viewpoints in different pieces. It makes it interesting to piece together. Also, the dynamic of their relationship just hits me in ways that I can't explain. Seriously, they hit kinks I didn't even realize that I have, or that I don't admit that I have. Some of it is really fucked up and dark. There is incest that is actually dirtybadwrong, and not in the dirtybadwrongsofuckinghot way of Wincest. Just... wrong and squicky and fucked up, which is how incest actually IS but isn't how it's portrayed most of the time in fandom. (don't get me wrong - I'm a total wincester, but this works on a different level) There are a lot of times that I question Mat's actions and thoughts, but at the same time, I can relate to some of them. SO FUCKED UP. But there is also the faildorableness of Mat trying to take care of a sick!Bob. And there is the kinkiest cuddle!fic ever that totally warms my heart. And there are pictures by [livejournal.com profile] howifall.

Seriously, give these stories a chance, even if you you're not into bandom. Hell, especially if you're not into bandom. I mean, it's AU anyway, and Mat Devine is tragically absent from bandom anyway, and I can provide you with pictures of the characters if you need.

This is Bob Bryar. )

This is Patrick Stump. )

And this is Mat Devine! )

So, GO READ and be sure to leave some love for the authors! Or the artist if you're checking out the associated fanart!

Also, bug [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique for a new Kill Hannah primer, or at least a better picspam than I could come up with b/c I'm easily distracted by shiny. ;) I mean, it's not like she's busy with school or anything...

Belated thanks to all of you for your birthday wishes and for the well-wishes about my accident. I had a fantastic birthday and a fantastic weekend. I got checked out by a doctor when I got home, complete with a ct scan, and my brain isn't any more damaged than it was to begin with and the black eyes should go away soon even though the concussion symptoms will probably hang out for a while.

[livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 finally managed to get me to watch Generation Kill and I LOVE IT. Apparently I have a new fandom.

I am soooooo tired, omg.

Mat Devine was tweeting about hanging out with Mikey Way, and I'm reminded of [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique lamenting the lack of Kill Hannah fanfic in bandom. What's up with that nonsense??

I love Gabe Saporta, and the Cobras, and Travie. And I love Travie's new album, which came out today.

Dragonsoul came out today also, but I can't get it until Friday. But yay for Jaida and Dani's new book!

I basically deleted everything in my inbox, so I'm not going to catch up on LJ, comments or posts. If I missed something important, tell me here. Starting over with a clean slate for Wednesday and going to try and keep up this time.

I can't remember if there is anything else I wanted to say, but I love you all and miss hanging out on LJ and hope things will level out soon. *hearts*

There are so many ridiculous half-finished ideas in my life. This was inspired by one of the [livejournal.com profile] bandomvalentine prompts that I didn't claim. Unbeta'd and finished by not complete, if that makes sense.

Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man

My twitter isn't working. :( I'm not getting updates from anyone but myself if I check it on the computer, and on the phone I get myself and my @ replies, but no one else's timelines. Boooooo! also, why do I always go to bed right before the ridiculous conversations. Silly Brian Schechter.

We're going to a party at the skate center later this afternoon. I really need to do something productive around the house before that, but I don't see that happening. I am supremely LAZY today.

Cassadee is on the cover of the latest AP. My copy is sitting at the end of the bed and makes me all :D. I still think she's adorable. (and I still wouldn't turn down Cassadee/Suarez fic! just saying!)

There have been a number of thinky posts about depression in the last few days, brought up by the disappearance and death of Andrew Koenig, and they all say things better than I could. In particular, I like
this one by [livejournal.com profile] karjack.

I haven't been actually checking my flist, but still relying on stalker settings, which means I miss stuff. Some of it's important (to me), like the fact Sema is apparently back and posting This Is The Way The World Ends on [livejournal.com profile] monaboyd? Holy shit, how/when did THAT happen?

anyways, I'm gonna go be lazy. :) Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday. (feel free to send me a text or an IM or an email or whatever if you see me. Lazy hopefully entails working on the writing I didn't do yesterday.)

HEY, ONE OF YALL BRILLIANT PEOPLE WHO DOES FANARTS? I need fanart from this story. Someone draw me Bert-as-Catwoman and I will... pay you in internet kisses and picspams? send you cookies in the mail? Idk.

Even if you're not a fanarter, go read this and have a good laugh. I love [livejournal.com profile] valerie_z.

Want some random ficlets? Several of you have already seen these by emails, but if anyone else is interested...

(note, all unbetad and probably ridiculous. Enjoy anyway!)

725 words of Bob/Patrick

Why did Lindsey send us each an invitation with a 'plus one' on it? )

475 words of Sisky. My interpretation of Sisky's tweets the other night, when we were all thinking he needed his internet taken away. :)

Drunk!Sisky is drunk. Also, he is complaining – loudly and insistently – because he's seen everyone’s dick except for Chiz's. )

Brendon wasn't hiding. Really, he wasn't. )

Title: not so conventional (and it sure as hell ain't normal)
Author: Tabby ([livejournal.com profile] why_me_why_not)
Pairing: Brendon/Spencer
Rating: Adult/R
Words: 7476 words
Prompt: 34.Brendon/Spencer, Kidnapping AU! maybe Spencer is part of a group of bank robbers and they kidnap brendon or take him hostage. Happy ending please (Maybe Spencer help him escape in the end, or something, maybe he was good all along, and so on)
Summary: Brendon gets kidnapped and sold into a prostitution ring. His new owner has secrets, though.
WARNINGS: mentions of drug use, mentions of violence, suspected character death, stockholm syndrome, dub-con.

Author's Notes: This was accidentally written after a discussion with my friends. I'm almost certain the blame goes to [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface, but I blame her for a lot. Thanks to her and the rest of my email-chain buddies for cheerleading this. Superbig thanks to [livejournal.com profile] citikitti for betaing for me even though she doesn't read bandom, and also to [livejournal.com profile] ashlein for everything. Title comes from Panic at the Disco's Camisado. Written for [livejournal.com profile] bandomvalentine.

FYI - this has a revised ending; Kat's the only one who's seen it.

Brendon opens his eyes slowly, cautiously. The past couple days are a hazy blur, a mishmash of nightmare and hallucination. It feels strange to wake up to clear – if dim – light and quiet. )

I am so not getting anything done. But the internet is so much more interesting than State Pharmaceutical Assistance Programs!! I'm just gonna pass on those questions on to Robbie anyway, since I'm not officially trained for that. Which is his fault anyway.

When Robot Armageddon comes, will you be by my side?, which is the only [livejournal.com profile] popoffacork fic I've read (yes, whatever, I do show favoritism) and which is adorable. Mikey is pretty sure his electronics are turning on him. Bob is the only one that can help. Naturally.

What I'm rereading (b/c when someone asks me to find them a fic, and I have to search my tags, I am easily distracted!):

More WIP Amnesty. This is the Teacher!Brendon fic. You think that as long as I've been fooling around with this, I'd be done, but I'm obviously not. So, have at it. That leaves me with only the ONE actual wip, the hs au, aka SS Teacher, fic, that has taken on a life of it's own.

This one is obviously unfinished, but I know HOW it ends. So there is a happy ending, even if it's not apparent here.

Brendon's a kindergarten teacher! Frank's daughter is one of his students!
5700 words, unbetad, ridiculous

Brendon thought it was probably wrong that he loved his job so much. )

By the time they're close enough to see the flashing lights, the smoke, and the chaos, Tom's already pretty close to freaking out. )
why_me_why_not: (Default)
Apparently this wants to be fic, but I don't know where it goes. It may be part of the werewolf!Empires 'verse, but it may be something else entirely: Nick waited until he heard the shower start up before he picked up his phone. Tom answered on the third ring, sounding a bit distracted. “Come get your boy off my couch.” Nick was serious. He loved Ryan, really, but it was far past time for Ryan and Tom to kiss and make up.

Oh look, drabbles! Or, more appropriately, snapshots! I don't think any of them are an even number of words, much less exactly 100.

125 words; Dean, Sam, military; for [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy.

You can't be serious! )

100 words; Draco/Harry/Luna, zipper; for [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy.

There were times Harry was baffled by Luna’s love of Muggle attire. )

448 words; Brian/Greta in the Basement Romantic AU 'Verse

Brian heard Greta before he saw her, and he still hoped he was wrong. )

636 words; CM/bandom crossover; Spencer Reid meets Spencer Smith.

Reid has to visit four stores before he finds the particular book of Celtic folk tales he’s been looking for. )

It's quite possible that I posted this one before, but I can't find it anywhere, so I may just be thinking that I've shared it quite a bit via email? Either way.

Title: A Day in Zack's Life
Fandom/Characters: Bandom; Zack, Brendon/Spencer
Rating/Word Count: Teen; 1339
Disclaimer: NOT MINE!
Summary: A day with our favorite boyminder.

A/N: Inspired by the [livejournal.com profile] cliche_bingo challenge of Day in the Life. It's only a partial day though. Unbetad.

Two nights in the same hotel doesn’t happen ever, but somehow it does. )
why_me_why_not: (porn! shiny!)
Title: Shiny Happy Bob Times
Fandom/Pairing: Bandom, The Used/Bob Bryar
Rating ADULT
Word Count 3200 words
Disclaimer The boys in this fic belong to no one but themselves and each other. If they were mine, I'm sure I'd have better things to do than write about their sex lives.
Summary: Bob doesn't know if Quinn comes back or not, but he can't worry about that right now, not when there are hands pushing up his shirt and hoodie, and fingers at the button of his jeans, and Jepha mouthing at his neck. His mind is a little preoccupied with trying to determine whose hands are whose. Not that it matters, since they're both trying to get him naked.

A/N: Currently flocked; I reserve the right to come back and change things as I see fit (including the title! That's just what it got called when I was sending it to [livejournal.com profile] ashlein. The other option is Failiest Porn Ever. *shrugs*) after this is actually beta'd. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow for starting this shit and for cheerleading. Cheerleading thanks also goes to [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy and [livejournal.com profile] ashlein. ETA: Beta thanks goes to [livejournal.com profile] mimiheart, who loves me enough to beta something in a fandom she's not part of. And to [livejournal.com profile] gelsey, for the same thing.

Tell me what you think! (also, for those of you who need to know, this week is Brendon Urie week, since I didn't write anything Brendonish this week)

Bob doesn't really need an excuse to disappear for a couple days. )
why_me_why_not: (great minds)
So, my dear friend [livejournal.com profile] thebunnyknows wrote fic!!

Title: Not Quite An Alley
Band: The Used
Rating: R/NC-17
Warnings: Slight d/s
Disclaimer: I’m not The Used. I don’t own them. This is only real in my fan girl mind.
Authors Notes: First foray into bandom, here’s hoping that it doesn’t completely suck. HUGE Thank You to [livejournal.com profile] why_me_why_not for the beta job, the hand holding and for being an amazing friend.
Summary: He wanted to nod, indicate that yes, he understood. But the last time he had done that, Dan had left him panting, hard and aching in an alley next to a 7-11 just outside of Philadelphia’s city limits.

He’d been taken by surprise.

Go read and leave her comments and love and encouragement! <3
