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

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... )
why_me_why_not: (denial)
I'm feeling better than I was, but I'm still not 100%. I can breathe, at least, even though there's a whining/ wheezey quality to it, and work!Amy brought me soup from Panera at lunch today. Also.... uh, I forgot what the "also" was. Whatever.

I'm never going to get caught up on LJ, but I'm determined to try, lol. In the meantime, how about this? We all have our pieces of personal canon for different fandoms, right? One of mine, that I'm sure everyone knows, is "Jason Gideon and John Winchester are/were friends. Or at least know one another." So, I'm gonna tell yall a few bits of MY personal canon, from different 'verses/fandoms/whatever, and yall tell me some of yours. Okay? Okay.

1. Molly Carpenter has a grasshopper tattoo.

2. Dean Winchester never lets anyone else work on the Impala, and he would even give up PIE if it meant he could get top-quality parts for her.

3. Spencer Reid was a virgin until well after he joined the BAU.

4. Despite the fact they were pretty fucking evil, Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy love Draco more than anything.

5. Caius Greylace will pester the shit out of Alcibiades until one day Alcibiades wakes up and realizes he's completely, totally in love with Caius.

6. Fred Weasley - a ghost, of course - divides his time between terrorizing his brother at the shop (he may be dead, but he still has a say in what's going on!) and causing mischief at Hogwarts (his mischief is NEVER managed, and Professor McGonagall won't admit she rather likes having him around; the years of the Wars took a toll on the school and the laughter and good-natured pranks help strengthen the magic there.)

7. Brian and Justin will eventually end up together, but they were never meant to be married.

8. Shawn will never find a girlfriend that means more to him than Gus does.

9. Gabe is totally going to take credit for Sean and Zach finally getting their shit together and hooking back up.

10. A good portion of the people that Dean and Sam save have an underground support network, kinda like the Paranet.

And look! I managed to not use any real persons in my personal canon! That doesn't mean you have to refrain, though. I mean, it's also part of my personal canon that Sisky and the Butcher are so married that no one even acknowledges it anymore, so whatever.

It has been so spectacularly nice here this weekend, yall. I love the warm weather, I am going to be sad if it goes back to freezing temperatures before it's actually spring.

I'm about to upload some pics to facebook and may throw a few on here as well, if anyone is interested. or needs to be warned for kid!pics, lol.

Here's what I need from yall though: (I know everyone is busy and stuff, but it never hurts to ask your friends for stuff, right?)

1. I was talking to [livejournal.com profile] wordsindreams one day and she asked about The Used and I said something about them being dirty boys. She asked if I meant "dirty" as in unclean or as in kinky. Obviously, the answer to that is both. And I intended to do a picspam for her but I've been so super busy. So, if you are a TU fan, would you link me to or share in comments some of your favorite dirty!Used pics?

2. HP fans! Or even if you're not an hp fandomer but know HP! Tell me who your favorite rare pair is! I have a bunch of drabble prompts that I'd love to write HP for b/c I miss it, but I don't want them all to end up being H/D. I've been writing Luna/Charlie for [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy and I wrote Luna/Draco (that still needs to be posted) for [livejournal.com profile] gelsey, so I'm curious as to what other pairings yall would be interested in. The only disclaimer (I think) is that I will only write Ron with Pansy, but idk if that counts as a rarepair since most of you know that's one of my favorite HP pairings. Oh, and I don't actually do next gen either.

3. WINCON. Who on my flist is going to wincon this year (other than [livejournal.com profile] wendy and [livejournal.com profile] exsequar, of course)? It's in CHICAGO, yall! I'm just curious, wanna know who I can plan on seeing this year.

4. Related to that, when is SPN coming back with new eps for this season? (let's not even talk about season 6, I'm still not sure how I feel about that)

Okay, I really do need to get this room in some type of order before dinner, which probably requires I get off the internet for a bit. <33333
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!


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)

Okay, I'm getting ready to go to bed. Text me if you want me. :)

175 words of random HP

Harry had long since traded his glasses for Muggle contacts. )

151 words set in the werewolf!Empires 'verse

Everyone knows that Nick's is neutral territory. )

375 words, also set in the werewolf!Empires 'verse

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: (stars and stones)
This actually needs to be its own 'verse. So consider this the first part and I may come back to write more later?

Title: International Werewolf Relations
Fandom: Harry Potter/The Dresden Files
Characters/Pairings: Harry/Draco, Billy/Georgia, Teddy Lupin
Rating: suitable for Everyone
Word Count: 1427 words
Disclaimer: I own nothing of either the Wizarding world of JKR or the supernatural world of Jim Butcher. Written in fun.
Summary: Harry and Draco take Teddy to Chicago the summer before he starts Hogwarts.

Draco detests Muggle transportation, but Trans-oceanic Apparition is complicated, dangerous, and draining. )
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. )

Fic Recs and Fic Dump :)

BUT FIRST! The [livejournal.com profile] usedfic Exchange needs a pinch hitter for a story!

ANYONE? You don't have to be part of the challenge already to pinch hit, and the minimum is only 1000 words.

So, speaking of The Used, here's where I got my crack-ration to start my week off right:

California Son by [livejournal.com profile] valerie_z
Tim (Rancid)/Bert (The Used) || NC-17 (but just barely) || Warning for incest
He didn't know why Bert bothered him so much. Something about the guy just got under his skin. He could talk for an hour with the intern at Machete who thought 9/11 was an inside job, but one smirk from Bert McCracken and he was ready to start swinging. He just needed to keep his distance.

And a Harry Potter rec. Now, I'm not actually so much into Snarry, I only read it when certain people write it. And [livejournal.com profile] mimiheart is one of those people.

Finding Peace by [livejournal.com profile] mimiheart
Genre(s): Genderbender/Crosdressing
Prompt(s):Secrets and Lies, Sanctuary
Harry/Snape || R, please read posted warnings || ~17,000 words
It takes a great hero to defeat the Dark Lord. Sometimes it takes a greater one to face oneself.

One of my long overdue drabbles. This one is for [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000, who asked for Dean/Castiel with a prompt of fallen, wings. It's also not exactly Dean/Castiel, b/c I can't wrap my mind around that, but it's close enough. 100 words.

Castiel hated to admit  )

And this is something related to my Big Bang Fic. If I ever do attempt to write porn, I inevitably get it halfway written and then stop. And then it never gets finished, lol. And we all know I have the attention span of a small butterfly, so. Anyway, this kinda stops in the middle of everything, and it's technically unbeta'd even though it's been read by several people. But I'm dumping it so I don't have to keep thinking about it sitting here unfinished.

Untitled Pete/Patrick/Ashlee
Obviously NC-17 || ~2800 words
Set the day Bob leaves for Chicago in Basement Romantic

Patrick hoped Pete would be gone by the time he made it back from the airport, but it didn't work that way. )

Best text I got yesterday: You are dangerously close to invoking plot in our selfindulgent bandom world!

haha. My friends are the best friends.

Took the boys to see HBP last night. I think that, like with OotP, I like the movie pretty well from a movie standpoint the first time I watch it, but after I see it more than once, I start picking out things I'm not happy with. do I need to cut for spoilers when we've all read the book? )

The other day, me and [livejournal.com profile] casualyobsessed and [livejournal.com profile] fangs_up1 were hanging out (I think this was the day they were making their movie preview b/c they're silly and summer vacation makes them bored) and we were listening to The Used's Blood on my Hands and I said "some things can't be tweeted"> (the actual line is "some things can't be treated") and now I keep saying it. *fail*

Took the kids to see Looney Toons this morning at one of the local (small) theaters; my cousin Scott was there with his kids and his girlfriend. Free refills on popcorn = the kids went through FIVE BAGS of popcorn in the one hour show. I'm getting ready to head to my cousin Amy's for a birthday party and will probably get stuck over there all afternoon. Which means I'm gonna be txtng the heck out of a few of you, haha.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!! <333

I really need to not be online for the next few days. I've got job search requirements to fill, plus my telecommunicator testing on Friday, and my actual certification testing (eep!) on Saturday that I need to study for, and Thursday we're going to that concert in Richmond so that's like half a day (at least) gone right there. But the internet is so darned distracting!

I've got a million things I want to post about (I know, yall are tired of seeing my name come up on your flist, sorry!!) but I'm trying to be RESPONSIBLE and get other stuff done first. But I read this fic this morning and I really HAVE TO share.

The Path Less Traveled By by [livejournal.com profile] gelsey
Harry Potter || Percy/Oliver, Weasley family, Albus Dumbledore || R, Dark themes, language, suicidal urges || 3,190 words
Summary: Percy Weasley must tread a darker road than anyone knows when he gets out of school and begins his life. Not everything is as it seems.

I don't even know where to start with this. I don't usually like Percy, but I do like it when authors explore his character a bit because he actually isn't that fleshed out in canon and we only see him through Harry's eyes. This is just such an excellent exploration of what could have been; I cannot believe [livejournal.com profile] gelsey made me cry over Percy while still staying true to canon. Plus, Oliver Wood is always a welcome addition. Yes, I'm totally in love with Wood, what of it? *g* Anyway, this is an excellent little read, and I highly suggest it to everyone, whether you're actually in HP fandom or not. And, as always, be sure to leave a little note for the author letting her know what you think. :)

I almost got into a fight at Christmas dinner b/c Jo is a bitch and decided she wanted to talk shit about Tinsley. And yeah, Jo is pretty much my sister, but Tinsley is Tinsley and way more important to me. Drew is sick and just broke up with his longtime girlfriend (who came by the house all sad and stuff b/c she has no family to spend Christmas day with), Bree had pink eye, and then there was the whole issue of Holden leaving in the morning. He had made up a song about him and his daddy taking a road trip and kept singing it, and kept asking why me and Pam and Shannon were crying, and finally started avoiding the kitchen because each time he'd come through one of us would scoop him up and hug him. :(

But now, I'm kicked back in my new, fuzzy pjs, eating a plate of leftovers and watching Mama Mia with Harley, so I'd say that's a win. Here's a couple more drabbles: )
why_me_why_not: (Default)
I am a slacker. I've come to accept this. Yall still love me, right?

somehow, this particular round of fic-dumpage is all the fault of [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy.

500 words of H/D. [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy asked for “the first time Harry runs into Draco after he and Ginny get divorced”

The first weekend Harry gets his kids, he’s really not sure what to do with them. )

200 words of Gabe-centric nonsense, written when the news came out that Gabe couldn’t talk for a week

When Gabe is told he needs to rest his voice for a week, his band decides that equals permission to take him home and fuss over him. )

200 words of Winchesters for the prompt words: Walmart, motorcycle, whining

Dean usually avoided Walmart )

500 words, Patrick-centric. This has been sitting here for a while. I’m really not sure who it was originally for or what the prompt was, but I have a vague recollection that it was supposed to involve Gerard, so it was probably for [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy.

Patrick doesn’t remember what city they were in when it started )
why_me_why_not: (Default)
A few random drabbles as I'm dumping fic:

225 words from the random H/D Eighth Year verse that exists in my head. Written from [livejournal.com profile] gelsey’s prompt words: bottle, crimson, breeze.

Draco didn't look at Pansy as he handed over the bottle of firewhisky. )

125 words of Stanford-era Sam. Written from [livejournal.com profile] nasus221’s prompt words: grow, best, heat.

The wasn't too unbearable (yet) )

150 words of Hermione & Charlie. Written from [livejournal.com profile] gelsey’s prompt words: silly, desk, shout.

Hermione knew she was being silly )

350 words of Teddy/Victoire. For [livejournal.com profile] gelsey’s prompt of “first kiss”.

Teddy wasn't expecting anyone to be out here )
why_me_why_not: (up to no good)
So, I've been toying around with the idea of writing Eighth Year HP 'verse (post-DH but epilogue disregarded). I have parts of it outlined in my head, and I really like how it seems to be coming together. Anyway, I also have a list of prompt words given to me by some of my favorite girls, and I intended to use them for drabbles, but this one got out of hand. Tell me what you think?

Title: A Chance to Be Not-Enemies
Fandom/Pairing: Harry Potter, Harry/Draco(ish)
Rating/Word Count: Everyone, 1000 words
Disclaimer: I don't own Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy, or any other part of JKR's wizarding world. No harm intended.
Summary: Now the Eighth Years were planning a long weekend in Romania, to visit Charlie Weasley and to learn something about dragons as extra credit for Care of Magical Creatures. Malfoy had apparently declined the opportunity.

A/N: Written as a result of [livejournal.com profile] wook77's prompt words: laugh, cry, blue. The truth-or-dare game referred to within can be found here.

He told himself it didn’t matter, but the truth of the situation was it did. He just didn’t want to have to ask himself why that was. )
why_me_why_not: (Default)
Some of the ficbits that I wrote this weekend from the awesome prompts some of yall gave me:

[livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy asked me for Tom/Ryan: make up, photos, kisses. Because I didn't know which Ryan Crystal meant, she ended up with two things. I actually know nothing about Ryan-from-Empires, though, other than he exists.

300 words, Tom/Ryan Ross

And for all the photos Tom appeared to take, Ryan hadn't seen a single one. )


200 words, Tom/Ryan-from-his-band (in which I actually completely ignore the prompt words, sorry)

Tom knows a million reasons he should avoid inter-band relationships. )


[livejournal.com profile] gelsey asked for Narnia: Edmund & Caspian, gen, warning Caspian about hurting Susan. 100 words.

Caspian was surprised to see Edmund waiting for him, sword in hand. )


[livejournal.com profile] wook77 asked for Latter Days: scars. 200 words.

Christian had a habit of running his thumb over the bottom of the scar on Aaron's arm. )


[livejournal.com profile] chaeldub asked for HP: Seamus/Dean - Year 8, Absinthe, socks. 200 words

Seamus tried to be quiet as he stumbled in the dark through the Gryffindor common room. )


HP: Harry/Draco, 200 words (to preface the h/d I actually wrote for a prompt)

Draco couldn't sleep a lot of nights -- nightmares, too much quiet, too many thoughts )


[livejournal.com profile] chaeldub also asked for HP: Harry/Draco - wand, dare, bite. 500 words

Truth or dare with a shared bottle of firewhisky among the Eighth Years was always risky business, but the stakes were even higher when the former Slytherins got involved. )

More to come tomorrow...
why_me_why_not: (awesome)
so, life is kicking my ass at the moment. How about some fic? Well, approximation of fic, anyway. There may be real fic on my lj again one day, but I wouldn't advise holding your breath.

I asked some of my favorite girls for prompts this morning. I don't think they turned out the way anyone anticipated or meant for them to. I'll put the non-bandom ones first, okay?

For [livejournal.com profile] alli_everyday. Sam/Dean: laugh, dream, doubt. 150 words.

Nights in some random motel room are the worst, )

For [livejournal.com profile] ltlredhairdgirl. Harry/Giant Squid: beach ball, tofu burgers, accio. 150 words.

Harry sat on the end of the dock and dangled his feet into the lake. )

For [livejournal.com profile] nasus221. Marshall obsessed with Greta. 150 words.

Marshall stood off to the side of the merch table, watching the stage. )

For [livejournal.com profile] wearethestars. Bdon/Spencer: Nevada desert, fall/falling, boots. 280 words.

Spencer stared out at the Nevada desert, miles and miles of sand painted by the setting sun. )

For [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy. Tom/Travis: picture, phone call, one night stand. 325 words.

Tom shrugs. He’s not discounting their night together, because it was something. )

For [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000. Butcher/Bden: drums, Australia, bandana

Brendon sometimes wishes he played the drums. )
why_me_why_not: (Default)
Think yall can handle one more ficlet type thing?

350 words of random h/d )

And I posted my (very very late) ficlet for [livejournal.com profile] slashfest.

Title: Sins
Author: [livejournal.com profile] why_me_why_not (aka, Tabby)
Requestor: [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 (aka, my favorite fanduck)
Fandom/Pairing: Criminal Minds, Morgan/Reid
Rating, Word Count: 521
Disclaimer: I don't own the BAU or any of the characters contained within this work of FICTION. No disrespect or harm intended.
Prompt: Morgan/Reid When Hankel (The Big Game/Revelations, season 2) tortured Reid and Morgan said we all have sins. What sins have he and Reid committed that Reid might have confessed to?

Morgan knows a million little things that Reid could confess to, any number of which would be considered a sin in Hankel's eyes, but the one thing he knows would condemn Reid is the one thing he hopes doesn't come up.
