I owe some replies to the awesome and sweet comments on my last post, but I've feeling shitty over that whole situation (and the added issue with Ralph), plus I've been busy with birthday parties (Ava and Neville) and sleeping more than is healthy. I'm not really sure what's been going on the past few days other than that.

Fic rec:

never leave alone from a corner table by [livejournal.com profile] earlofcardigans
Avengers (2012 ARBB) || Clint/Coulson || 6660 words
Clint and Phil have most of their meaningful conversations over fries and milkshakes.

I know I linked this over on Twitter, but for those of you who aren't on there (or who are avoiding it tonight b/c of the overabundance of tweets about the Teen Wolf finale):

GO WATCH THIS VIDEO! It's a multifandom fanvid set to We Didn't Start the Fire, and there are SO MANY CLIPS in it. The video itself made me happy but I kinda wanna watch it again to see if I can name all the clips without looking at the list that the vidders posted, lol.

Because we all need some cheer in our lives...

[livejournal.com profile] alafaye (friend of a friend) is hosting The Cheering Up Meme.

Go, leave a prompt, look over the ones that are there and if you see some thing that inspires you, write it or draw it or whatever. Anything goes, let's spread some smiles! :)

There is also a Girl!Direction fic fest going on, if that's something you're interested in.
why_me_why_not: (simba)
I was going to tell yall about the awesomely hilarious zombie apocalypse conversation that the boys and I had on the way home from dinner, but it was too much to type out. Let's just say, my kids are awesome. Instead, LINKS!

I accidentally came across this via Twitter, but I kinda love it: Written? Kitten! - for those times when you have trouble focusing on getting stuff written, you get rewarded for every 100 (or 200 or 500 or 1000, whatever you choose) words with a pic of a kitten! How cool is that?

I'm pretty sure this also came from Twitter: Colson Whitehead's How to Write

Things that I want but don't need AT ALL, including Retropolis T-shirts and geeky bras.

Speaking of things I want, I have a running list of possible fic prompts (usually from song lyrics, yall know me) and/or titles that don't have a home (seriously, this list has been building forever, waiting for the right fandom/character(s)/idea/inspiration). The most recent additions:
*"Their powers make them super; their choices make them human."
*The truth is you could slit my throat, And with my one last gasping breath I'd apologize for bleeding on your shirt.
*"I'm too sober for this shit." (which could really be the prompt to fit any and every pairing/fandom)
* No matter how many breaths that you took you still couldn't breathe
* This is the first song for your mixtape. It's short just like your temper, but somewhat golden like the afternoons we used to spend before you got too cool...
* Save me cause i’m falling, now i can’t seem to breathe right, Cause I keep runnin' from my heart.
* "We can't control the wind, but when it blows, we can turn our sails towards it."

There is a Multi-Fandom Olympics AU Ficathon, if anyone is interested.

FIC RECS!

If Heaven's Hypothetical by impertinence & shoemaster
Hockey RPF (which I still don't know, I read it like original fic)
Jeff runs away from Toronto and finds himself homeless in Raleigh, where he accidentally starts serving eggs to Eric Staal.

Pizza and a Movie by Closer (part of the Pizza-Verse)
Suits AU
In an alternate universe, Harvey's still a lawyer but Mike's not a pot runner -- he's a deliveryman for Rollo's Pizza and Ribs, which happens to be Harvey's favorite pizza place. Once Harvey finds out his pizza guy is a genius, Mike's life takes a few turns he would not have expected...

The Time to Find a Place to Land by BlackEyedGirl
Avengers
By Phil’s count, this is his third attempt at bringing the Avengers together, although he will admit his participation in the second attempt was more symbolic than anything else. He hadn’t expected Stark to be the easiest sell, or Barton to be the most problematic, but things have changed since he’s been away. [Movie spoilers.]

Signup for [livejournal.com profile] theheartofspn's Winchester Summer LOVEfest!, a two-month, multi-media celebration of the Winchester brothers leading up to the Season Eight premiere. Any fan who wants to participate can sign up now through the end of July, and celebrate their love of the brothers in any way they choose: fic, vids, art, picspam, meta, graphics, recs – if you created it and it’s about the Winchesters, we want to see it!

You know that feeling you get when you start reading a fic and you just know it's gonna be a favorite? Yeah, so that happened today. And it probably wasn't appropriate that I was reading it on my phone while standing in line while dropping monkeyface off at church camp, but I started it before we left here and wanted to finish it!

But yeah. If yall know me (and which fics are my all time favorites), then it won't surprise you that I loved this. So I'm sharing:

Won’t You Please (Leave Your Mark On Me) by [livejournal.com profile] torakowalski
Avengers || Phil Coulson/Clint Barton (past Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff) || NC-17 || 20,000 words
Clint really likes handcuffs; he’s just not sure how to tell Phil that. Which is a problem since they’ve been sleeping together for a few months now. Contains: a character experiencing subdrop and so description and discussions thereof, some non-consensual handcuffing (not in a sexual sense) and one non-negotiated scene. Also the following kinks: handcuffing, bondage tape, spanking, wax play and discussion of whipping, painplay and flogging.
Also on A03

So, so good. :)

LINKS:

What the actual WHAT? I mean... Brendon Urie, what? Idek, you guys.

Also, I ♥ Gabe Saporta. "Quack quack quack fuck you @petewentz"

Do yall follow Jim Beaver (jumblejim) on twitter? He was letting his daughter Maddie tweet on his account today and she was writing fanfic on twitter. It was kinda really adorable. And she said "You guys will never believe this, but I met Sam! And Dean! And Bobby! Wait, Bobby's my dad. Hee Hee. Maddie." So cute. :)

Yall see this necklace? I really like it. Someone should buy it for me. (I know, Hinton's in West Virginia, right?) But it is nice, and if yall haven't checked out the stuff that [livejournal.com profile] apiphile has up at her etsy shop, you really really should.

While I'm pimping Derek out, you should check out her RedBubble page (my personal favorites: the I heart Music tshirt and the Social Retard tshirt) and her LuLu account. I have a few of these, and I can vouch for the awesomeness of Tiny Fictions.

And my high school friend (friend from high school, not friend who is currently in high school) Elizabeth is starting up a line of natural body care products. She's just in the beginning stages right now, but if you're interested (or want to offer encouragement, lol), she has a blog up at wordpress and a facebook page. Feel free to tell her I sent you her way.

We celebrated Neville's first birthday today (he turns one on Thursday; can you believe it??) with only limited amounts of drama. I'm probably gonna do a RL picspam in the next few days. I'm sure that those of you NOT on my facebook are missing seeing pics of my kids, aren't you?

I HOPE YOU ALL HAD A GREAT WEEKEND, AND A GREAT WEEK AHEAD! LOVE YOU! <3
why_me_why_not: (Default)
Guess what? I'm gonna torment yall with fic. :) Just be happy it's not the high school AU, lol. I'm gonna link you to two older fics that I actually really like, then give you the new one. One of the old fics reminded me of a challenge, though, and I wondered if anyone would be interested in participating.

The original challenge was to take the first five songs to come up on random in your itunes/whatever player you use for music files and take the first line of the second verse of each song and create a ficlet incorporating those lines. Awesome challenge, right? So I'm gonna alter it a little bit, if anyone is interested in playing along with me. If you leave me a comment, I'll give you the first line of the second verse of the first five songs to come up in MY itunes shuffle, and you use them to create a ficlet. Any fandom/pairing/whatthefuckever. Anyone wanna play?

I have my flist titled as "Things to Make Me Smile", because that's mostly true. But sometimes, things on my flist just make me growly.

This is pretty much copied from [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge's entry here.

A few days ago, Wordpress suspended A Search For Survivors, and there was a letter campaign that had to be called off because they deleted it. [Read More About It Here] Now, they've brought it back, sort of, and are taunting [livejournal.com profile] waywardradish with it. They are, in fact, tormenting an abuse survivor by telling her she has no control over her words and her story.

So please, feel free to email them again at tosreports@wordpress.com to -- politely and courteously -- request that they stop interfering with the journal. No specific subject line is needed. Suggested text (via [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge):

I strongly protest your continued interference with the Wordpress journal childtorture.wordpress.com. It is a vital and invaluable resource for holding therapy survivors. The documentation it presents includes firsthand experiences, eyewitness accounts, and news, medical, and legal documents available to the public.

In suspending and/or removing this journal you are doing both the community and your own public image a severe disservice.

Holding therapy is abusive and lethal and aimed at children, who have no voice. Please give abuse survivors back their voice.


Please take a moment to send a short email, reblog if you are able, and if you have support to offer please offer it to Radish directly.

Okay, so once upon a time I had an Author & Beta Resource Guide and it's completely out of date now, but I'm going to work on a revamped one this weekend. What I need from yall is help compiling links to include. So, if there are any resources that you use regularly as an author or a beta and you think I should include them, please link me in comments?

Some examples:

One Look is a dictionary site I regularly use.

HP Lexicon is a fandom-specific resource for HP fandom.

Super Wiki is a Supernatural Canon and Fandom Resource

Creating Dazzling Dialogue

[livejournal.com profile] apiphile's guide to ecstasy (the drug, not the feeling. I also have other drug resource posts in my links)

Websites for Writers

Bandom_primers comm on LJ

I obviously have a lot more links than this already accumulated, but this is just an example. I'm looking for links to resources that are both fandom-specific or that are for writing in general. Any and all suggestions and links would be greatly appreciated, and feel free to link others to this post b/c the more help I get the better the resource guide will be. <3

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.

Before I start spamming you with new stuff (because I know yall can't wait to hear me ramble about Molly Carpenter's first date with detective whatshisface), I figured I'd recap the last week of posts, in case you missed them. I know everyone had other things on their minds. So...

Picspams

The Used
Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester)

Bandom || Tom/Jon/Cassie || Adult || ~2650 words
He looks away, back down at the camera, fiddles with the lens, and when he looks back up Jon's eyes are closed again, his lips moving against Cassie's ear, and she hums in response to whatever he whispers.

Apparently the past couple of days unofficially ended up being FOB picspam days, which totally made me smile!

[livejournal.com profile] strangefrontier posted Patrick Vaughn Stump Is Sexy: A Picspam.

[livejournal.com profile] ihavecake posted about the other nerdy, sexy one, Joe Trohman.

And [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique posted Petespam!

So that leaves ANDY HURLEY! If you've been on my flist a while, you know that I fail at picspams because I cannot make witty commentary on the pictures, or if I attempt it I usually give up part way through because I have the attention span of a small caterpillar. I tend to just throw pictures up and be like "HERE! HAVE SOME SHINY!" But I'll try.

So, I posted [livejournal.com profile] slashfest fics. Yall tell me what you think? In the meantime, I'll be suffering through class and thinking about what kind of songs Draco Malfoy would sing if Harry Potter was a musical...

Title: Not the First Kiss

Requestor: [livejournal.com profile] miz_thang88

Rating/Wordcount: E for Everyone / 572 words
Summary: No one pays them any mind. Sometimes, it's better that way.
Disclaimer: I own nothing of JKR's wizarding world.
A/N: I had this written but was procrastinating getting it beta'd. Then, my flashdrive died. I had to redo this entire thing so it's completely different than what I had originally intended (which was actually set post-war), but I still kinda like it. I hope you do too, [livejournal.com profile] miz_thang88! <3 Beta thanks goes to [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 and [livejournal.com profile] ltlredhairdgirl.

Theodore couldn't remember the very first time Blaise had kissed him.

He would probably have still had plenty of doubts if he had accepted the scholarship the first time, right out of high school, but at least he wouldn’t have felt so out of place among his peers then.

Hi my favoritest peoples! It’s the last night for [livejournal.com profile] slashfest claiming, and there are still some amazing prompts left waiting to be snagged! Come take a look; you may see something you wanna claim and write, or something you can talk someone else into claiming (I’m guilty of trying to do this! And guilty of not talking [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 out of claiming something even though she and I both have too much to do already!).

There’s something for everyone at [livejournal.com profile] slashfest! Some unclaimed prompts that deserve some love:

Criminal Minds: Reid/Morgan Set sometime after Revelation. Morgan thinks that part of Reid's problem is that he feels he has no control, so while they're fooling around or getting ready to fool around, Morgan just stops and makes Reid take over. [Find it here]

Criminal Minds/Bandom RPS Crossover. Spencer Reid/Brendon Urie Reid somehow knows one of the panic boys (from growing up in Vegas) and somehow Brendon ends up tied into a case the BAU is working. Reid is all weird because he likes Brendon but thinks he's so uncool in comparison. [Find it here]

Harry Potter: [Find them all here]
Dean/Seamus Post Hogwarts. Dean and Seamus wake up together (and naked) after a rough night none of them can remember. They question the people at the party and figure out" what happened, accepting it but... later (maybe months later after they have an established relationship), they find out it was all a joke from the twins. ;)
Harry Potter: Blaise/Draco Blaise and Draco are casual bed partners, there's no love between them. They date different people and fail them. Finally, they realise that they are meant for each other.
Sirius/Remus Marauder-era pranks, something involving the Map.

LOTR: Aragorn/Legolas Legolas congratulates the new King of Gondor the only way he knows how. There should be some kind of plot/back story to this too, not just a PWP. [find it here]

RPS Patrick Stump/Justin Timberlake Justin has some fond memories of working with Stump and Pete Wentz on Timbaland's Shock Value, and he's looking forward to seeing him at the VMAs. [Find it here]

RPS Jensen Ackles/Chris Kane Taking a break from the pressures of the Hollywood life and going back to Texas for some BBQ, beer, and old fashioned male bonding. Just what they both need to get over the job and the people they've missed out on because of it. [Find it here]

Shelter Zach/Shaun Zach feels like he owes Shaun, so he sends Cody with Gabe for the night and sets out to make a romantic dinner/evening for himself and Shaun, only things don't go exactly as planned. [Find it here]

Supernatural Sam/Dean Dean is withdrawn and introspective and Sam is sick of it. He ties Dean down to the bed and keeps him there, doing dirty things to him for an entire day until Dean starts to feel better. He complains but really he's very grateful to have Sam in his life and to have Sam take care of him. [Find it here]

Tin Man Glitch/Cain Glitch teaches Cain how to dance (waltzing preferred) in time for Ahamo and the Queen's second wedding/renewal of vows. How smutty it goes is up to you but I'd love to see some kissing at the very least. [Find it here]

COME TAKE A LOOK! CLAIM A PROMPT! TELL A FRIEND!!

Claiming is open until 11:59 EST tonight. [Rules and Regulations]

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*

JERICHO!! OMG! Yeah, I won't talk about it here, but seriously? Oh. My. God. *loves*

Also? I don't have the dvds for s1 of Jericho. In case anyone needs an idea of what to get me for my birthday in two months.
