Daily linkage post! Things that make me happy + please votes:

I read an awesome vampire!AU the other day:
No One Bites Back As Hard by [livejournal.com profile] witchling
GK || Walt/Ray(/Brad if you squint) || Hard R (blood play) || ~5k words
Some times Ray suggests that Walt should audition for “Twinklight” - pretty much without fail he gets punched for it, which is like domestic abuse or some shit. (Vampire!AU)

And [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface made my day when she shouted on twitter about a Fast Five picspam: Picspam, of the big size. FAST AND FURIOUS. by [livejournal.com profile] apetslife

One of my current favorite songs: Luke Bryan's It's Time To Take My Drunk Ass Home

And we all saw this video of Misha and Jensen, right? I HAVE NO WORDS! omg, Misha Collins. (also, thank you to [livejournal.com profile] wordsalone for bringing this to my attention!)

Oh, god, EMPIRES. Seriously, everytime I hear a concert recap (or an encounter recap, lol), I fall more and more in love with these failboats. Please please please vote for them. Voting for this round of Choose the Cover goes through April 14th. EMPIRES!!!

My kids are CRAZY, yall. CRAZY.

Apparently the boys from Empires actually are werewolves. I'd link yall to twitter / pics for proof but my head hurts too much.

Speaking of werewolves, I may accidentally end up writing fanfic for the US version of Being Human. Oops?

Also, I somehow got involved in a conversation with my friend Jim that ended up with talk of buying handcuffs, and I'm not sure how? Another oops?

If this headache doesn't go away by Saturday morning, idek wtf I'm going to do. I have to drive 3 hours both ways, and spend idek how many hours at the karate tournament. Ugh, my life. :(

TELL ME GOOD THINGS, YALL!
why_me_why_not: (funnification)
Work is work is stupid. Blah. But I don't have to go back until SUNDAY, and tomorrow is FOOD DAY, and I'm supposed to be packing that last corner of my bedroom but instead I'm procrastinating. (haha, I know, yall don't believe it, do you?)

LINKS!

Check out this awesome piece of artwork from [livejournal.com profile] howifall. The little details in her art are always fabulous; I love it.

And then go read Faces of Luck, the porny schmoop that [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 posted from the girl!Brad/Nate 'verse she accidentally created.

And I did write a ficlet of sorts for [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000. She's already seen this, but Happy Belated Heather-birthday to the Internet? :)

645 words of Tomrad/SVV.

Tom knows just how well Sean translates to film. )

I really need to quit fucking off on the internet and go make dinner for the kids so I can get showered before Shannon comes to pick me up. But the internet is so entertaining! Today was my do-nothing day, and so I had a chance to get reacquainted with the wonder of the internet. HOW HAVE I BEEN SURVIVING WITHOUT IT?

And I haven't even been on Livejournal! That is my task for tomorrow!

Things that make today great:

1. Drive A announced a new tour, which means they'll be in Norfolk in Feb. I still kinda adore them. And I'm excited about their new album.

2. Empires. I cannot find the words to express my feelings on them. First, they release their music video for BANG, which is so NSFW and creepy and THEM, and everyone should go watch. Just be careful of who is around when you're watching, lol. But also on that page, in addition to their broken video counter, are the pictures Tomrad took during the video shoot. I love this failtastic band!

3. Mat Devine (from Kill Hannah) did a Q&A type thing that totally made my morning. Sidenote of special thanks goes out to [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique, because she's the reason I even know who Mat is!

4. Everyone ever is fired for not linking me this video last week: Spencer got a stun gun... HOW DID ANYONE EVER THINK THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?

5. Shane put three videos up for the Doritos Crash the Superbowl Challenge: Long Shot, What?, and What? - Extended (Zack seems to like the first one, I like the third one. Still - go watch!)

6. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows tonight! And tomorrow! (haha, going to the midnight show with friends, then taking the boys tomorrow evening)

okay, I really need to get in the shower. Will have my phone, feel free to text me since I'm sure I won't be the only on standing in line waiting for DH tonight. <3

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... )

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
Pre-split Patd/Empires, Spencer/SVV
811 words

Why do you have a tambourine on your head? )
why_me_why_not: (Default)
I don't follow football, so I've been watching reruns of Criminal Minds on A&E all evening instead. &BAU;

I also listened to Tom Conrad on Q101.com and heard the debut of Empires' new song. Can it be Tuesday now so I can have that song for my own?

Lol, I started to type "can it be Friday now?" Apparently I wanna fast forward this week!

FIC RECS:

Radial by [livejournal.com profile] philomel
SPN, Dean/Sam + the Impala. NC-17.
Beautiful fic showing how Dean feels about his car and his brother.

Princess of Dragons by [livejournal.com profile] gelsey
HP, Charlie, Victoire
Charlie is made Victoire’s godfather upon her birth, and he becomes an intrinsic part of her life. (such a lovely bit of writing, I love Charlie in this)

Oh, Discos & The Used, I love you.

BUT! OMG, EMPIRES!! Yall, I love their ridiculous dorktastic faces SO MUCH! I kinda want to do a post about WAYS IN WHICH EMPIRES ARE AWESOME! but I have other things I'm supposed to be doing this weekend, both fandomy and around the house. BUT!! *flails* Really, I'm pretty in love with them this weekend. And I've been away from the internet for MONTHS, so if I've missed anything spectacular related to Empires while I was gone, feel free to share the love with me. Because I'm almost certain there is going to be an Empires Appreciation Post sometime this week. <333

Am at home b/c the daycare is closed, and I didn't realize how good a thing this was until I actually got out of bed. It seriously hurts to move at all; my back and my wrists are really feeling the effects of all the snow shoveling yesterday. And this computer chair isn't very comfortable, but I'll deal.

So, [livejournal.com profile] apiphile posted a link to this tumbler yesterday and I may have spent my computer time looking through the pictures there instead of working on fic like I intended. Not that I'm complaining!

But today I really, really have to do something productive. And I can now link you to the Brendon/Tom fic! (if you're following along as I try to finish the teacher!brendon thing, you may know where the desire for Bden/Tom porn came from. but teacher!bden doesn't really have sex with Tom!)

Thinking straight, with nothing to prove

Brendon/Tom || 4495 words || adult || plotless porn

by [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 and [livejournal.com profile] why_me_why_not

This is fiction. If you know or are any person named herein, please hit the back button. Or, you know, don’t tell us. (I’m looking at you, Tomrad.) Title from All the pretty girls, by fun.

*facepalm* Working title: Bandboys need no pants. That says it all, pretty much.
why_me_why_not: (exclamation points)
I HAVE SUPERNATURAL NAIL POLISH BECAUSE [livejournal.com profile] acidquill IS MADE OF AWESOME!!!!!

Also, some band posted a music video today. And since I worked overtime, I'm sure I'm the last to see it, but just in case... The Used - Empty With You (I can't embed it, probably because I'm retarded, but you should go watch it. at least once. *g*) If someone could be getting me a Quinn Allman for Christmas, that'd be fucking awesome. Just saying...

p.s. BANG! Just a friendly reminder. :)
why_me_why_not: (stars and stones)
In honor of the new single that's going to be available at weareempires.com at midnight CST...

Title: Pack

Rating: Adult for language
Disclaimer: They totally belong to each other, not me. :)
Summary: part of the werewolf!Empires 'verse. what more do you need to know? (beta'd by [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000, cheerled in various parts by various people.)

It’s 2:36 in the morning and Tom is wide awake, staring at the cracked ceiling in his darkened bedroom and listening to the rain tap against the window. )

I think it's time for a Happy List! I haven't done one in a while.

Had a great time with my cousins and such tonight. :)

[livejournal.com profile] mya_in_ab playing word association with me today

someone randomly yelling out "jazz hands" in the middle of our quiet classroom this morning

naked leprechauns in 3D

us getting in trouble for bonding (we were maybe a little too loud - apparently they could hear us singing the Fraggle Rock theme song like two rooms down)

this interview: Part One and Part Two

speaking of The Used... [livejournal.com profile] apiphile wrote this ficlet thingy and one of the lines in it is "He'll never admit to anyone quite how in love he is with them being in love, mostly because it'll get back to them and then Bert will never ever shut up about it and Quinn will probably use it as an excuse to borrow money from him or some shit." And that line just sticks with me b/c I REALLY AM SO IN LOVE WITH THEM BEING IN LOVE!

and speaking of [livejournal.com profile] apiphile, she was dumping fic this weekend and there was some Frank/Bob with Frank being a manipulative little shit and Bob being BOB and breathplay.

I'm sure yall remember me talking about [livejournal.com profile] swear_jar and [livejournal.com profile] apiphile's Thursday Verse? Well, it spawned some awesome fanworks of its own, such as [livejournal.com profile] strangecreature's fic Creeps which is so perfectly Pete-and-Mikey from that 'verse.

And then [livejournal.com profile] strangecreature (who is fabulous at artsy stuffs anyway) posted this picture of Mikey from TVRemix 'verse, and, as I told her in a comment, it is that is the perfect combination of creepyasfuck and HOT!

"I"m just saying, whoever killed her, also murdered the English language." (also, "Nothing seems rocky but Rocky Road.")

Davey wrote a letter to a cute little girl in Cananda ;)

Music mixes on my flist! Wendy and Ash always have the best mixes, but there have been several other mixes popping up lately. <3

Whenever I watch the Jonas Brothers (HEY! I have KIDS! We watch a lot of Disney Channel!) I keep expecting Mike Carden to appear and/or wondering what would happen if he did.

Kill the headlights and put it in neutral by [livejournal.com profile] themoononastick. Yes, yes, okay. Keep judging me. One one hand it's Ryan Ross. But on the other, it's TOM CONRAD. And the prospect of Empires being faily, which I cannot resist, b/c really. I love their fail. But really. Once, way back when Tom was alternating between being angry at the world and being depressed and Ryan still thought that painting birds on his face was the ultimate expression of his inner turmoil, Tom and Ryan had some, as it turned out, surprisingly good sex. Together. At the same time. With each other. Please please please read this and enjoy it as much as I did. :)

Someone needs to hook me up with info on how to download Glee. It's on at the same time as CM, and I'm not missing CM but I have been convinced that I need to add Glee to my list of obsessions.

Bandom - Empires || Ryan/Sean/Tom || Adult || 2465 words
Disclaimer: I don't know any of these boys personally and I make no claims on them. No harm intended. If you are one of the persons in this fic, please hit the back button or at least don't tell me about it.
He doesn't want to fuck up whatever bond is forming in his new pack, but the marks look good on Sean. They look even better when he realizes Ryan's the one leaving them.

A/N: Title comes from Empires' Valmont. If you don't know the song, go download HOWL from their website FOR FREE right this very instant. Part of the werewolf!Empires 'verse. You don't have to have read They Just Howl, since there's no plot to this, but that's where it started. And there's a big part in between that's as-yet-unfinished. This one is just about sex. Beta'd by [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000, all remaining mistakes (and I know there are at least a few) are all mine. Dedicated to my girls: [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000, [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface, [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy, [livejournal.com profile] nearlycloudy, and [livejournal.com profile] ashlein, who have all already read this.

Somehow Ryan always ends up with accidental marks. Sean ends up with the intentional ones. )
why_me_why_not: (levels of awesome)
Omg, I don't even know where to START with this day!

So, downsides of the day include having to work my shitty job (I told Teresa today that I didn't make all the sacrifices I did over the last year and a half just to end up in a job where not only am I seeing my kids for less than an hour a day, but my med schedule is being fucked with, so she shouldn't plan on me taking the job seriously. It's totally temporary), the fucking humidity, taking my ring off last night and forgetting to put it back on this morning so I freaked out all day not having it to fidget with, [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface's phone was being stupid, and... okay, so it was actually an awesome day, so I can't even think of any more downsides!

I guess I'll start at the beginning.

[livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy is so awesome and she started telling me the CUTEST Bob/Frank story last night and she kept me entertained with it throughout the day. I <3 her.

Then when I took lunch, there was a multitude of awesomeness waiting for me: a voicemail from someone about a Real Job -- I have an interview in the morning! -- that I had just applied for and some little band called The Used (yall may have heard of them?) POSTED US TOUR DATES! Which, obviously, resulted in much grinning and giddiness and checking tour dates and the calendar and such.

Cue me smiling insanely for the rest of the afternoon.

THEN. On my last break I had a voicemail from ANOTHER job that I've applied for, with info about coming in to take assessment testing. SCORE! Plus, my Daddy ended up calling while I was on break, and he's back in town and told me to come by tomorrow after work for money and veggies.

And then I came home to catch most of Secret Life and spend some time checking airfare and whatnot. And looking at OLD pictures with Mom. And then watched Raising the Bar and went to Walmart. I have a shirt! Tomorrow, I will have a Team Zack shirt!

OH! And [livejournal.com profile] danacias's tweets made me stupidly excitedly happy for the second night in a row. I'm kinda ridiculous about that Brendon kid.

Here is my decision on The Used. As much as I want to go to LA to see them (seriously, my friends are the best friends), that show is in the middle of the week. The Houston show is on a Friday, and thus much more easily workable schedule wise. But I WANNA GO TO LA! Seriously, I'm gonna go crash Crash's life (Crys + Ash = CRASH *g*) for like a full week after the first of the year. IT'S MY MISSION! But yeah, The Used in Texas. :) I even remembered to ask [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 if I can stay with her! Of course, it was after I already started comparing ticket prices, lol, but it's totally the thought that counts!

I AM SO HAPPY TONIGHT, YALL! *group hugs*

So, fic? This is a belated birthday ficlet for [livejournal.com profile] novalinedy, who is sweet and awesome and deserves lots of happy. Actually, I'm gonna post her a ficlet AND a snippet from the Empires!werewolves 'verse, because she's a Tomrad fan and because I feel bad for being so slacktastic about posting her birthday ficlet.

Hideout
Tom Conrad/Shane Valdes (kinda) || 526 words
[livejournal.com profile] novalinedy wanted something out of the Perception 'verse, maybe how Shane and Tom met, so this is what she gets. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy and [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface for reading it over for me.

Tom was trying to find a place to hide from Brendon’s grabby hands... )

And a snippet of werewolf!Empires:

Ryan's the one that always ends up with the accidental marks, but Sean's the one who ends up with the intentional ones. )
why_me_why_not: (blame lesa)
So, I've been tormenting [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface (and [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 and [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy) with fic about werewolf!Empires, and [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface said she really didn't know who they are/what they looked like. So, a short but informative picspam is called for!

I just did a RyanJ picspam last week or so, which you can find here.

Also, if you don't have Empires' album, I might disown you. I mean, it's on their website FOR FREE and it is AWESOME. Go here to download.

And if you're interested in the fan-created cover album, which I also quite enjoy, check out They Just Howl.

Now, for pics of the band: )

I stole some more pictures from [livejournal.com profile] exsequar. You should check out her post here for more pics and other awesomeness about Empires.

And there is also a fantastic post with pictures here.
why_me_why_not: (balloons)
So, today is [livejournal.com profile] danacias's birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HUN!

I mentioned the other day that I was going to make her a Bob Bryar picspam for her birthday, and she said she wouldn't mind if one of the Empires boys snuck into the picspam too. Funnily enough, today is actually Ryan J's birthday too! So I had to include him.

Bob Bryar )

*happy sigh* I kinda love Bob.

I also adore Ryan Luciani. For any of you who don't know, he's also a drummer and he's also from Chicago. He is supremely more failtastic than Bob though. Still, he's kinda rather adorable.

Ryan J )

In conclusion: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! <333

A/N: Much love to [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 for betaing and helping me with a title, and to [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy for her "Oh Thomas. You precious precious retard." comment when I texted some of this to her months ago. Comments/feedback is love.
