Oh, Cobra Starship, how I love you. <333 Their new song makes me very happy.

Last night, Camisado came up on my iTunes mix, so I had to listen to all of Fever. I'd forgotten how much I actually enjoy that album.

Saw this on my flist this morning: Band Girls Big Bang is a 10,000 word writing challenge that features and focuses on the often forgotten girls of bandom. Who's gonna write me epic Greta/Alex Greenwald to go with that? *g* (Or Brendon/Cassadee? WHAT? I don't have to make sense!)

I didn't see SPN last night, but I don't like the reactions I saw to the episode so I'm not too sad I missed it.

I'm working my way through (the master list is here -- voting closes 11:59 pm EST on Tuesday, May 12th) so I have a few recs from that (and a couple from OWL):

H/D fic/art recs )

I'm about to head out to a birthday party for my niece (yall feel free to text me and keep me entertained while I'm there *g* The kids are going swimming and I don't want any part of that; I'm just gonna hang out in the party room with my notebook & my cell phone, I think).

Earlier this week, I betad something that really just blew me away with its awesomeness. It was finally posted today, so I figured I'd rec it, because it seriously needs to be read no matter which fandom you're in, along with a few other recs from this week.

Taken and Forged by [livejournal.com profile] albydarned
Set mid-season three for both Supernatural and Criminal Minds
Reid-centric (with Reid/OMC, OFC, not explicit)
Rated: R/FRM, Word Count: 4,600
Warnings: non-con (not explicit), violence and dark themes
Summary: Something is hunting Reid. Watching him, controlling him, waiting until the perfect moment to make him only hers.
Yall, seriously, this is incredibly dark!fic but it is so well-written and so perfect and shudder-worthy and I LOVE IT! PLEASE, go read it and be sure to leave [livejournal.com profile] albydarned a comment letting her know what you think.

Dragon Tamer by [livejournal.com profile] gelsey
Harry Potter fandom; Charlie/Draco
Rated: R, Word count: 2178

Bandom, Brendon/Ryan
Rated: PG, Word count: ~2400

This seriously made me wanna cry for the boys, very well written & emotional.

Southland Tales (The More Things Change) by [livejournal.com profile] phaballa
This is a kinda-sequel to [livejournal.com profile] phaballa's Chicagoland fic, which is an awesome, amazing J2 au that I know I've recced before. It's one of my favorite things. (Jared and Jensen plus kids!! C'mon!) I haven't read this yet but I know it's going to be awesome, so I went ahead and included it in this post, lol.

Okay, my car is warmed up and Davey's tapping his foot, so I gotta go. Love yall bunches!! <3
why_me_why_not: (happy birthday)
There are two very special birthdays going on today, so it seems very fitting that Samantha was born this morning and can share her birthday with two of my favoritest peoples in my world.

[livejournal.com profile] mimiheart is an excellent friend, an excellent mother, and an excellent person all-around. I have kinda lost touch with her as time has passed, but she is still so special to me and will always be.

Then there's [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000. If you don't already know how much I love her, you must not pay much attention to me, lol. She is totally made of win, she writes bandfic with me even when it's completely irrational ridiculousness, she lets me come crash in her guest bedroom, she writes me porn, she puts up with my crazy txtng habits, she never makes me feel stupid when I ask stupid questions, I swear this list could go on for days. Instead, I'm gonna rec you some of her fic, because comments can be a great present!

Settle Into Home
Bandom: The Cab, Ian/Marshall, Rated R
Ian and Marshall head to Washington for a break after Rock Band and touring with the Plain White Ts.

I Don't Want to Know
SPN/CW RPS: Jared/Sandy, Jared/Jensen, Rated Teen
Sandy isn't sure exactly why or when her relationship with Jared went wrong; she just knows that it has. She kinda hopes it is something she's done, because then she can maybe fix it, but she's afraid it's something else.

If Not Victory
SPN wincest, rated R
Dean. Sam. Bondage. ~2000 words. No plot to speak of, just porn.

All in the Family
Harry Potter, Bill/Charlie, rated R
Charlie returns home after the events of HBP.

Last Take
QaF RPS, Gale/Randy, rated RWhat happens on the set stays on the set, especially after the last wrap party.

You can find the rest of her fic over at [livejournal.com profile] iris_scribbles, and she also writes with me over at [livejournal.com profile] tabby_and_iris (Epic Love Story 'verse, yay!).

So, everyone, go over and wish [livejournal.com profile] mimiheart and [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 a very very happy birthday, b/c they definitely deserve it!

This particular Hokie bird amuses me:

Photobucket

House points to anyone who can guess why. Except for [livejournal.com profile] casualyobsessed, b/c she spent the afternoon with me. No House points for sisters!

Speaking of House points, there was an h/d fic recced this weekend that I read and find to be amazing. You should check it out. Lamp in a Cooling Room by [livejournal.com profile] sansa1970. Draco and Harry become snared in a trap, but they're not alone. Love guides our path for reasons we can't always understand. Seriously, this made my heart ache in such a beautiful way and I love it. I think it was on my to-be-read list (it's from the Hd_worldcup) so I hate that I didn't read it sooner.

Also? [livejournal.com profile] pixel_0 wrote a little slice of J2 perfection. I'm pretty sure it's flocked, though. If you're on her friends list, go read it. It is seriously amazing.

Kelly Marie died 9 years ago today. That makes me feel old. We took her flowers & whatnot this afternoon, which is why we were in Blacksburg & counting hokie birds. Now, I'm off to make chili and clean house. So unfun. Love yall!! <3
why_me_why_not: (Default)
okay, so I'm posting 8 today b/c it's the 8th. I won't promise that I'm going to post happymaking things everyday for the month, but that is my goal, since I'm tired of being whiny and complainty (Jon calls me Spongebob Complainypants at work). Of course, you may end up with like 31 pictures of Frank Iero on Halloween (b/c Halloween is his BIRTHDAY and b/c he's alternately adorkable and omgfuckinghot, so he would totally be an acceptable happy-making item), but we shall see. We all need some happy in our lives, yes?

Panic at the Disco on Last Call last night (sponsored by Corona, lol)

Can't Cry Hard Enough by [livejournal.com profile] gelsey
Angelina Johnson/George Weasley, past Angelina/Fred
Summary: Fred is dead. He has left behind two people that love him very much. How will George and Angelina cope now that he's gone?


my brother took us out for dinner tonight

Whisper of War by Madrone (not to be confused with Whisper War; I love the Cabbabies, but this is definitely not them)

How Did I Get Here? by [livejournal.com profile] rufus
Bandom genfic, where Spencer Smith and Bob Bryar swap bodies. Totally awesome characterizations of both bands. I LOVE THIS FIC! It puts me in a warm, fuzzy mood. I definitely think you should read it.
why_me_why_not: (Default)
Hi lovies! I hope things are going well for you!

Oct 6th -- Have 6 things that make me happy!

1. The newest member of our family, my brother's puppy Daisy
click for pic )

2. Hearts Over Draconis by [livejournal.com profile] somigliana
Charlie Weasley investigates a mysterious dragon killing—a post-war tale of murder, intrigue and love. Charlie Weasley, Luna Lovegood. DH disregarded.
I haven't started reading this yet but it's been sitting up on my screen for like a week -- since whenever [livejournal.com profile] somigliana posted that it was finished -- waiting for me. I'm really looking forward to it; it's gonna be my reward tomorrow.

3. finding a parking spot directly in front of the building where I had a job interview this afternoon

4. Jon-from-work saying Jared & Jensen are fucking hot and that they're the reason he started watching Supernatural

5. homemade apple pie, fucking YUM!

6. Draco's Boy by Empathic_Siren
A non-magical AU, HP/DM, Harry and Draco meet as eight-year-olds after Harry moves in next door. Draco takes a liking to Harry and decides to make him his boy. Follow them as they grow-up together, learn each other's deepest secrets and, after a little bit of angst and a whole lot of UST, fall in love.
I'm not quite finished with this, but I'm really really enjoying it.

Tell me something good that's going on with you? <3
why_me_why_not: (awesome)
Over the weekend, I posted fic over at [livejournal.com profile] tabby_and_iris:

A Sweet Melody
by [livejournal.com profile] why_me_why_not with help from [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 and [livejournal.com profile] wearethestars
Rated for everyone, ~2400 words
Part of The Epic Love Story of Brendon Urie and Frank Iero 'verse, Frank/Brendon, Bob/Greta
Summary: Alicia and Mikey need a baby shower.

And a drabble:

For [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy. Ryan/Ray: hero worship, octopus, banana. 200 words.

Dude, you know your lead singer is like a fucking octopus? )

I still owe out four drabbles/ficlets right now, but feel free to keep me occupied at work, okay? plus, this weekend we're going camping so I won't have internet, just my notebook. So, if you'd like, give me a character or a pairing and three prompt words. Feel free to pick any fandom that you know I write in.

Speaking of prompts, I left one for [livejournal.com profile] chaeldub and got this little piece of awesomeness in return: Tattoo.

I don't remember if I ever recced this or not, but [livejournal.com profile] chaeldub wrote a fic for the [livejournal.com profile] hd_worldcup called Better The Devil You Know, which I really really enjoyed and suggest to all you HP and H/D fans.

I'm off to convince one of my girls to chat with me for bit. Love yall! *mwah*
why_me_why_not: (Default)
Fic Recs!

I know, yall are like 'Is she ever gonna shut up?!' I get to go back to work tomorrow, and I start night classes this week (mon, tues, and fri nights) so you'll get less of me. Maybe.

A Thousand Shades of Red by [livejournal.com profile] nekare
SPN, Wincest, rated R, 10,021 words
Summary: Growing up is hard. Sam knows it, can feel it beneath his skin as his bones stretch and his baby fat fades and he’s perpetually hungry.
I haven't read much SPN fic lately, but this one I couldn't resist b/c of how much I love everything [livejournal.com profile] nekare has written in HP fandom. I'm so so glad I took the time to read this one, b/c it's beautifully written, if a little heartbreaking, and nekare definitely has a way with words as she shows us Sam's progression through his teen years.


The Birthday Cake Fiasco of 1980 and How It Lead to Really Fantastic Shagging by [livejournal.com profile] sopdetly
HP, Remus/Sirius, Pre-Azkaban, PG-13, 1,755 words
Even though there is no actual shagging in this fic, despite the title, I found this to be highly enjoyable. I appreciated the laugh and the reminder of why I adore the puppies.


And we know bandslash is my current obsession, so one more:

if we wake at all by [livejournal.com profile] riflethrough
Marshall/Ian, Cash/girl, R, 1970 words

and it's sequel:
feel you through the weather by [livejournal.com profile] riflethrough
Cash/Marshall/Ian, R, 4200+ words

Yeah, The Cab boys are my guilty pleasure. But guh, totally needs to be read.
why_me_why_not: (Default)
OMG, I so need to remember to tag my posts. I never do, and it makes my life so difficult. I'm so smart. I don't know what I'd do without [livejournal.com profile] lilian_cho stepping in and tagging things for me sometimes.

I have drabbles of my own to post, but while I get them typed up, how about some fic recs so I can close some of these tabs I have open on my computer?

Ashes of the Heart by [livejournal.com profile] gelsey
HP, Blaise Zabini/Pansy Parkinson, NC-17, 750 words
Summary: Sometimes, no matter how happy something makes you, it just isn't meant to be. Loss and grief burn away the memory of that happiness and leave but ashes of the heart.
I love Pansy, really, and this short piece just kinda captured me. Very beautiful.

Tempered by [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000
bandom, Jepha/Bob (UST) (The Used/MCR), PG
Summary: Jepha doesn't tell Bert or Quinn when Brian sends him a pass for My Chemical Romance's show at the SaltAir Pavilion.
okay, so I'm a cheat and I love Iris, but that doesn't make this any less good.

I actually thought I had more to rec, but apparently not? Oh well. Go give my girls some love.
why_me_why_not: (Default)
Fic Recs!

I know, you're wondering how I can have recs when I have no internet. Simple! I had at least a dozen tabs open of things to come back to when our internet got disconnected, so I still have that stuff! Yay me! And yes, these are mostly friends and I may be biased, but their fics are AWESOME. Read and find out for yourself.

Three Septembers and a January by [livejournal.com profile] mizbean
HP fandom, Harry/Draco Harry/Ginny, R, 6000 words
Summary: In September 2002, Harry walks into a pub during a rainstorm and his relationship with Ginny changes forever.
This is so well-constructed and the characterizations are so good. And it's even DH-epilogue-compliant. It's enough to make me fall in love with Harry and Draco all over again.

Sweden, Snow, and Serenity by [livejournal.com profile] wook77
HP fandom, Dean/Luna, hard R, ~10700 words
Summary: Six months after the Second Battle of Hogwarts, Dean's burnt out from his experiences with the war. When Luna invites him to accompany her to Sweden to look for the elusive Crumple-Horned Snorkack, he finds more than he bargained for.
Okay, it's no secret that I love wookie. But this story... ever since she first started writing it, I was in love with it. Beautiful imagery, beautiful emotions, and Luna is so Luna. It's a brilliant piece of work and wook deserves lots of love for it.

Letters to Prague by [livejournal.com profile] phaballa
popslash, Lance/Justin, rated Adult
Author Summary: And that was four years ago and he's been in love with Justin for two years and he only wishes he weren't maybe once a month, when Justin does something infuriatingly unthinking; when he forgets to call and stays at the studio all night working, when he gets Lance to blow off a meeting or an event or a party because he doesn't want to go out but he doesn't want Lance to go out without him, either. He still acts like a kid sometimes. He still acts like the kid Lance met fifteen years ago in Florida—cocky and spoiled and like he'd never seen a day of disappointment in his life and never would. But that's only once a month and the rest of time Justin is the guy Lance fell in love with. He's a real person and neither of them are the same people they were when they met, or even that day at the Ivy.
Okay, my summary was gonna be "Lance gets pregnant!" Seriously. But even though it is mpreg, [livejournal.com profile] phaballa makes it about so much more than that. She's a brilliant writer, in case you haven't read any of her work. And I can't say too much about this one b/c I only have the first part of the story up and I need to finish reading it, but I love [livejournal.com profile] phaballa's writing style and I love what I've read of this so far and I know I'm gonna love the rest of it as well.

I've been meaning to rec this H/D fic for a couple days. Yall really really have to read this: I have no words to tell you how awesome it is, especially without giving anything away.

Moments of Truth Between the Lies
written by [livejournal.com profile] wook77 for [livejournal.com profile] the_eros_affair
Fandom/Pairing: HP, Harry/Draco
Rating/wordcount/warnings: Hard R, 1482, angst
Summary: Harry's headaches are getting worse, but he forgets about them when he's got Malfoy under his hands, in front of him, around him.

I really truly loved this and it makes me want to hug or strangle the boys. And it makes me want to write H/D. And it's incredibly HOT even though it's beautifully, heartbreakingly angsty. Go read and be sure to tell wookie what you think!
why_me_why_not: (Default)
I've been slacking the past couple days. Crazy work hours & a killer headache are muchly to blame. And [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000. I meant to post this on Monday but I didn't, obviously.

What I Read This Weekend: This is not an all-inclusive list, just a sampling that I felt was worth reccing. Also, b/c I am a slacker, what I read is either written by someone on my flist, recced by someone on my flist (I seriously have enough things that have been recced to me to keep me busy for the entire summer), or from [livejournal.com profile] slashfest.

Certain Things (Should Be Done Right)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] apple_pi
Fandom: LotR
Rating: R
Summary: In which Merry and Pippin are drenched, Pippin sneezes, Merry is a fusspot, and it all comes out right in the end.
Warnings: Slash (try to contain your shock!)
Spoilers: Takes place after the War of the Ring and the Scouring of the Shire.
This was written for the 2007 [livejournal.com profile] remix_redux, and even though I never read the original fic, I really enjoyed this one. It's just quiet & easy & hobbity... very very lovely.

A Tom and Jerry Story
Author: [livejournal.com profile] not_mandroid
Fandom: Supernatural/RPS crossover
Pairing: Dean Winchester/Jensen Ackles, a bit of Jared/Jensen
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: 4815 // 10 pages
Warnings: spoilers for "Nightshifter" & "The Usual Suspects"
Summary: Dean and Sam have split up to work on a case. While Dean's checking out a lead, AU!Jensen is a cop and recognizes Dean's face. There's a chase and then they end up sexing each other up in a motel off the highway [Request by ltlredhairdgirl]
This was written for Krystal for [livejournal.com profile] slashfest, and I was really looking forward to it because I loved the prompt when she came up with it. And [livejournal.com profile] not_mandroid did such an awesome job with it. Both Jensen and Dean are outrageously narcissistic, and the whole fic is just funny and hot and begs for a sequel. Plus? Jared is an undercover hooker.

Girl-face
Author: [livejournal.com profile] virginie_m
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: Sam/Dean
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 3000
Summary: Written for this prompt: Sam/Dean I want Sam to give Dean something before he leaves for Stanford…his bracelet, maybe? And I want Dean to wear it forever and for Sam to be pleased when he sees it after they're reunited.
Okay, so I'd been meaning to read this since it was posted to [livejournal.com profile] slashfest, but didn't have a chance to until Sunday, and I'm so glad I did. It's so intense and beautiful and perfect, and the characterization is believable to me. Two things to note about the author: she hasn't seen S2 of SPN yet, and this is her first SPN fic. So she deserves some praise & encouragement, b/c this is awesome.

Time Passes
Author: [livejournal.com profile] wook77
Fandom: HP
Pairing: Dean Thomas/Seamus Finnigan
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Seamus starts marking time from the moment Dean's heart was broken.
I didn't read this one this weekend. I actually betad it a short while back and it's one of those things I couldn't wait to be able to rec. I love the pacing in this, and the way Seamus keeps track of time. Wook always manages to throw in these awesome lines and phrases that I absolutely love.

Two Straight Guys in Wisconsin: The Amazing Adventures of Chris and His Cock
Author:Rhys
Fandom: NSYNC popslash
Pairing: Chris/Lance
Rating: NC-17
Summary: So, the mini-summary on the author's page says "A very long story." The person that recced this to me just said "read it." And I'm really bad at summaries, so I checked out how other people summarized it and the best I can tell you is: They're in Wisconsin & Chris is crazy. Lance has a straight-guy crush on Chris, and then they have gay-but-still-straight sex with each other
I have no idea what it is about reading popslash, but I kinda love it and have a hard time explaining why. Some parts of this seriously had me laughing out loud though.

So, go read, enjoy, leave love and feedback. And if there's something you think I need to add to my To-Be-Read list, feel free to drop me a link in comments.

May is here. Finally. Fun things for May:

Umpteen more tball and soccer games
Avalanche games (yeah, apparently I'm bad luck b/c I didn't go last night & they won 11 to nothing. They scored 7 runs in one inning. WTF, guys?)
Safari Carnival @ Ronnie's school
Fishing Rodeo
Beth's Wedding
Harley's Awards Ceremony
Birthdays, including: [livejournal.com profile] phaballa, my nieces Trysen & Tonya, my uncle Mike, my sister Bessie, my brother RT, 5 of my cousins
RENO!

I'm working on a post for fanfic tunes for May. In the meantime, how about a roundup of what I did fandomy April?

What I wrote:

Jared's Ark
J2, 550 words
Summary: Um, Jared wants a bunny.
A/N: My [livejournal.com profile] alli_everyday asked me to write her J2 bunny fic one day, and at the time I had an idea for it that wasn't complete crack, but I lost it. So, I wrote this instead.


Doofus
Wincest, Adult, 1400 words
Summary: Sometimes Dean has to remind Sam there's no reason to be jealous.
A/N: Written for [livejournal.com profile] wendy in response to this post. Myself and my betas all fail at titles. Obviously. This was saved as "doofus" in my fic files and apparently that's how it will forever been known. But it actually isn't half bad!


What I recced:

But Lately I See Her Ribbons and Her Bows by [livejournal.com profile] notthequiettype
Sam/Dean. Adult.
Dean wakes up as a girl in north Las Vegas. 8,800 words.

I can't remember the last time I laughed so fucking hard. Seriously. Plus there is really hot porn in it.

My Five Favorite Fics that I've Written
posted from a meme. HP, SPN, QaF, Criminal Minds

Six Months On by [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000
Criminal Minds, Reid-centric, 400ish words, spoilers for The Big Game & Revelations
I was supposed to write Reid & molecular biology for [livejournal.com profile] swedish15 and couldn't, so Iris loves me enough that she wrote it.

By Appointment Only by [livejournal.com profile] phaballa
aka the Jensen the Happy Hooker Crossover AU of DOOM
Fandoms: cw rps/popslash
Pairings: Jensen/JC, Jensen/Lance, Jensen/Jared, JC/Lance... they're HOOKERS, okay? They fuck a lot.
Rating: Adult
Summary: Jensen and Jared are hookers. JC is JC and Lance is Lance, except that everyone's having sex with Jensen. Well, not Chad. He's still too busy giving VDs to high school girls.

[livejournal.com profile] anasuede did this meme over on her journal and tagged me to do it.

Writer's Meme: Sometimes it's ok to pimp yourself out. Post a list of your top five favorite fics you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same.

Picking Up the Pieces - HP - Draco & Harry are thrown together after both face situations that turn their lives upside down. Will they become friends themselves? Written btwn OotP & HBP. [PG] Multichaptered, unsure of total wordcount.
I love this because it was my first fanfic. I know it's not the best piece of writing, but it was a huge step for me just to write and post it, and I met some of the most awesome people through it Without it, I would never had gotten involved with The Tauri Archives and the OWLie family there. I also would never have gotten close to [livejournal.com profile] ltlredhairdgirl, who is one of my bestest friends, or [livejournal.com profile] lilian_cho, or several other of my favorite flisters. I have a lot of happy memories associated with writing and sharing PutP, and I absolutely adore Karissa.

24 Hours - HP - Written in response to the 24-hour challenge. What happened during the 24 hours between the attack on the Potters and Harry being delivered to the Dursleys? [PG] 4300 words
One of the things I love about HP is that there are so many blanks in the story that we can fill in. I loved writing this, and going over all the possibilities of "what if?"

Blue on Black - QaF - Gus gets lost... Post-series, features mostly Justin and Gus. [PG] 3000 words
I think the reason I love this is because it came from out of the blue. We were having a comment party and [livejournal.com profile] misread_ and I were going back and forth writing lines of fic. We didn't have a fandom in mind, or even a character. We were just using pronouns and general situations. And this is where it ended up.

Tequila & Teethmarks - SPN - Dean just laughed, like this was all some sort of game. Maybe it was. If so, Sam didn't understand the rules, but he was pretty sure he was losing. Wincest, nakedness, boy!kissing, biting [ADULT] 3500 words
The first Wincest I ever wrote. This was after I said I wouldn't write SPN or wincest, and when I could still claim I didn't write smut. But I had had the title in my head for a while, and it was begging for a story, and I think this one turned out rather well.

Reciprocity - Criminal Minds - One night changes the direction of Reid and Morgan's friendship.
This was written for [livejournal.com profile] slashfest a few rounds back. It was my first venture into Criminal Minds as a fandom, and I had actually not read any fic up to that point, so it was very exciting to be writing it. I really can't explain it; it's like... when I write in HP or SPN, there are so many other fantastic writers out there and I'm always so intimidated b/c I've read their stuff and I know that there is fic that is so much better than what I can do, so not having anything to compare it to made it... not really easier to write, but maybe less inhibited? I have special love for this fic, even if I'm not doing a very good job explaining why.

And my runner up (b/c De did it, which means I can do it too):
Kisses in the Impala - SPN - wendy actually gave me a prompt that wasn't for porn! I was so surprised that I just had to try and write it. Her prompt: -Five kisses in the Impala (from Dean's PoV)...kiss from mom, kiss from dad, kiss from girlfriend, kiss from Sam, kiss from Sam when they finally Do It. [PG] 1500 words
I always love writing for [livejournal.com profile] wendy. She always gives the best prompts and also is the most enthusiastic, enabling cheerleader EVER. And this one... I dunno, it was my first try at wee!winchesters, which I think everyone knows I love to write, and it was interesting trying to get the voice right as Dean grew/changed/whatever.

I'm not specifically tagging anyone b/c I haven't been paying attention to who has already done this. So, if you're a writer on my flist and haven't done this, consider yourself tagged.
why_me_why_not: (Default)
I'm at home with a sick kid. Who's not really SICK. He's just coughing b/c he has chronic bronchitis (another thing to thank the ex-dumbass for) and there's nothing I can do about it. He just needs to drink lots of water, remember to cover his mouth, and not get excited. But I had to go get him from school, and my supervisor was all upset about me leaving her and I told her that if Harley will watch Ronnie when she gets off school that I'll come back in about 4 or 4:30. But I really don't want to. But I kinda need too b/c it's awful early in the year to be using up my sick time. Even though I'm the only one in my dept that hasn't missed any time since the first of the year.

Oh, and speaking of Harley, do any of yall know anything about a Degrassi fandom? I'm sure it exists, I'd just like to find it before she does so I know what she's getting into. :P Also, she made me SPN wallpapers for our computers. She's so cute sometimes.

Went out Saturday night and ended up having a good time. We went to Charades to meet Tinsley for drinks since Adele was working there. Met this woman named Julie who was waiting for her girlfriend's flight to get in. (Charades is a hotel bar, actually, at one of the hotels beside the airport, but it's an awesome place). Julie kept buying shots for Tinsley and Kristina and we were talking about all sorts of things. Then we got distracted b/c there was a VMI group staying at the hotel celebrating Scottish culture so there were a bunch of people walking around in kilts and Julie asked one of them if they wore anything underneath them. He said yes, even though they traditionally don't. Then Joey Lynn showed up (yes, my brother's fiancee and his ex-wife, going out together) and she had a few nasty friends with her and embarrassed me just by showing up, especially since the one girl had a tampered ID. But then Joey and Kristina were dancing together and I went to the bathroom and came back to find Kristina slipping dollar bills into Joey's cleavage. So I decided I wasn't gonna go to the Park with them, like we had originally planned, and went to John's with Tinsley instead. Which was fun, card-stealing ghosts and vibrating walls and Josh the Mad Hatter and all.

One last thing for now, I'm cleaning out some old files on my mom's computer and there are some fandom recs on here, so I figured I'd share. It's entirely possibly that I've recced these before, but oh well. Also, I'm not sure when these were accumulated, and some of them have summaries but others don't. Enjoy anyway!

So, I've spent my whole evening trying to work my way through slashfest, reading the fandoms I'm familiar with (and comfortable with, b/c there are some pairings I can't read) and being saddened by the lack of commenting going on over there. I bring to you now some of my favorites, in a variety of fandoms. Mostly from slashfest, a few from my flist. There will possibly be more tomorrow, since I have a few more slashfest fics to read and then I can start working on my fanfic-to-be-read list.

GOOD OMENS
Casual as Birds by [livejournal.com profile] apple_pi
Fandom/Pairing: Good Omens, Aziraphale/Crowley-ish

Fandom/Pairing: Smallville, Clark/Lex
Rating, Wordcount: R/NC-17, 7,303
Summary: A close call with Kryptonite causes Clark to see a side of Lex he'd long thought dead...
Just because I've only caught a few random episodes of SV doesn't mean I can't read the fanfic! *g* This is very awesomely written and I loved it.

I'm trying wholeheartedly to get back into some kind of spirit, be it holiday or fandom or whatever, just so that I can at least go back to pretending to be happy, but it's a struggle. In the meantime, I think I've become one of those whiny, complaining people that I really don't like, which just makes things all that much worse.

My usual suspects betas are all otherwise occupied, either with real life, or with writing their own fandomy things, or a combination of the two. So, I come begging of my flist... I need a second beta for my Criminal Minds slashfest fic. I don't need someone that knows the fandom, just another set of eyes to go over it for grammar, spelling, punctuation, other mechanics, etc. It was already betad by [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000, who luckily loves me no matter what, but I prefer to have at least two people read before I post anything that's going to be posted somewhere other than my own LJ. Also, I am going to need betas for my other two slashfest fics, one is HP and the other is and HP/GO crossover. They aren't quite finished, but they're close. Being nonsociable does have its occasional advantages, I guess. Also, if you know me, close doesn't always mean anything b/c I'm very bad with time.

Some of my favorite peoples have been writing up a storm lately, and I feel utterly intimidated by them because they are all so frickin awesome! I can't rec everything that I'd like to, b/c a few of the things I'd love to rec are fics from [livejournal.com profile] merry_smutmas and the authors obviously haven't been revealed yet, so that'll have to wait. But I can make other recs in the meantime, and these things are undoubtedly just as awesome. But you don't have to take my word for it... GO READ!

Top of the list is [livejournal.com profile] notthequiettype, who has posted three fics in the last three days, as well as a hugely awesome slashfest fic that it a must read.

Two Highways East and a Quarter Mile North of Salvation
Pairing: Sam/Dean, Dean/Sam, Wincest
Rating: Adult for content, but not for porn.
Words: ~3,500
Warnings: Incesty-ness, horror movie-like gore, and do I need to warn it's dark? It is the Apocalypse after all.
Summary: from the prompt: Dean and Sam are part of the few who have survived the Apocalypse.

Now, for the porn. She's blaming these on De, which means we should be thanking them both.

The Ties that Bind
Adult J2, Ash's words: Jared's got a lesson to learn. Um, so, De mentioned bottom!Jared and then porn happened. This is maybe the filthiest thing I've ever written. Un-betaed. And uh. PORN. Herein there be kink. And porn. Did I mention that?~1,800 words.

Sleeping Shadow Moves
Adult J2, Jared gives Jensen a pleasant wake-up. ~850 words.

And some awesome Sam & Dean gen, rated Adult for language/insinuation
The More They Stay the Same
Dean's got a strong appreciation for the finer things in life, namely women.

Since de was mentioned more than once in the A/Ns for Ash's stuff, how about we do her next? De, known as [livejournal.com profile] anasuede to the uninitiated, wrote I'm Gonna Give You What You Deserve (Hush Now, Don't Say a Word) for [livejournal.com profile] jsquared_xxxmas for day six (six solid spankings).
Words:: 5,785
Summary:: Jensen just doesn't know when to stop. Like, ever.
There just aren't enough words for me to tell you how hot this is and how much I loved it. De's got such an amazing way with words.

And another slashfest entry fic.
Recollect Me Darling... by [livejournal.com profile] keepaofthecheez
NC-17 Wincest, 5842 words
Warnings: m/m sex, incest, underage (Sam’s 16), voyeurism, masturbation
Summary/Prompt: Dean’s intent on corrupting Sam, but Sam knows what Dean wants and gets off on torturing him.

When I started this post, I wanted to rec something by [livejournal.com profile] wook77, but I can't decide what. By now, all you HP fans should have read her Dean/Seamus slashfest Wish Long and Long, but if you haven't, go do it! The imagery in that fic is so amazing. Otherwise, go lurk around her LJ and read some of the fic she's been posting almost daily this month. She's creates magic with words.

There are a couple other things that I want so badly to rec, but I can't yet. Boo. Here's one more SPN rec.
Once Upon a Time by [livejournal.com profile] ravenrants
PG, features John, wee!Dean, wee!Sam
Sammy asks for a bedtime story, John obliges. It kinda goes downhill from there.....
why_me_why_not: (Default)
So, I ended up being the mom last night. But it's okay b/c I still had a good time. And I got to do a lot of flirting with the hot bartender.

Fic Recs for a Saturday Morning:

I haven't been reading much of anything lately, but I caught sight of this on [livejournal.com profile] _emeraldgreen's LJ and even though it's not an official fic or whatever, it reminded me of how much I love her writing style, so I have to share.

A bit of Marauder-era porn featuring Remus/James, along with some James/Sirius, Remus/Sirius and quite a bit of James/Regulus.

Now... some of you know that I have secret affection for Harry/Luna. And my de wrote an awesome H/L kinda story for [livejournal.com profile] reversathon. It's 4000 words of major angst and dark themes.

Request/Summary: Harry/Luna. Post-war. Harry's miserable, drinking himself into oblivion type thing. Along comes Luna to sort him out. Doubt, insecurities, etc. Up to you whether she manages to sort him out or it all ends up rather postmodern and ambiguous.

You can find it here: Believe

And speaking of H/L, one of my favorite stories has been completed. Azar Darkstar's How to Tell the Truth from the Lies can be found on OWL/Tauri if you're a member there and on ff.net if you're not. It's a multi-chaptered, AU, Harry-is-Salazar story, with a very interesting twist on canon and other commonly accepted HP-truths. It's definitely worth a read, but there are dark/mature themes, violence, death, etc.

Now... I'm off to the Voldemort store and to the creek for the afternoon. I have an original short story to post later, if anyone wants to volunteer to read over it before I do (except for krystal b/c it's for her and I can't ask her to betaread her own present). It's short and kinda schmoopy, but oh well. *g*

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

WAIT!! I forgot to ask... Would anyone (or multiple someones) be interested in trying to get together a multifandom Y!M chat tomorrow evening?

Okay, so I'm kinda hyper and can't sleep, so I'm organizing some stuff on my computer. This is an HP rec list I compiled a while back (think like a little over a year ago) from suggestions in a yahoo group I'm invovled in and I don't know if any of you'd be interested, but I'll put it here anyway. Just in case anyone wants it.

Oh, and one non-HP rec that was on the list:

What if Darth Vader were a blogger? His thoughts, feelings and moods during the "original" Star Wars trilogy.
