So, my daddy and I got storage areas of the basement cleaned out yesterday. There is actually a floor in the basement! And it's white-grey, not brown/black! :P Seriously, we hauled out so much trash and ruined things. But at least we have room now to move some of the things from the actual family room of the basement and from what will eventually be my bedroom. Last night I took the boys to watch Ice Racing, which was a bunch of guys and one girl (who was a quad racer and took the checkers in every heat she was in) just goofing off and having fun, lol. But now I'm excited for actual race season. First NASCAR race is Feb 20 (which reminds me, I need to check w/ Tim, because he was supposed to be getting tix for me & the boys for the spring races at Richmond and Martinsville) and Taylor's first race of the season at Motor Mile is in April. Yay for watching cars go really fast in circles? Lol.

I'm supposed to be doing more housework today, but me and the princess are just chilling instead. We actually have sunshine today! Illy likes to play in the sunshine, so we have all the curtains open. She keeps trying to bite me and take over the computer, so I set her in the floor and turned all the Kung Zhus on her (we have six of them now, and it's kinda funny to watch and her reaction to them). I've gotta meet Tim at 4 and we're gonna hit Home Depot and Sam's Club before we all meet up at Logan's for dinner. Yay for family times?

Here, have some happy making things:

So, that Brendon kid and hotass drummer Spencer? Yeah, apparently the full version of their new song leaked. Can they hurry up and announce their tour dates? I have serious fangirl plans for stalking them, dammit!

The theme for this year's Relay for Life is something related to cartoons, so we're appropriating that to make our team theme CareBears and CareBear Cousins (which is fitting, since our Team Name is Cousins for a Cure). I already called dibs on getting to be Grumpy Bear, lol. But we're starting to work on fundraising things, so I might ask yall for tips.

(related to that, and I'm sure this will be an actual post later, would anyone be interested in contributing to ideas for and/or purchasing a fundraising cookbook?)

[livejournal.com profile] wendy posted a link to [livejournal.com profile] big_heart_june's boy bits picspam. Wendy called it a Jensen and Jared crotch!spam, which is essentially what it is, but no matter what you call it, it's happy making.

I have no idea how I ended up following @IAVA (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America) and @MattGallagher83 (Matt Gallagher) on twitter, but I do follow them both. Either way, there was an essay that Matt wrote for the NYT's Home Fires this week that was linked in multiple places, and I wanted to share it. Pilgrim's Progess by Matt Gallagher.

Okay, last thing, before I run off to meet my baby brother: GK Fic parties! [livejournal.com profile] iwillrememberu's Main Ships Party and [livejournal.com profile] little_missmimi's Unsung Heroes fic party.

1. DISCOS! Yall do realize that when we get an actual album and a tour, you're going to have to listen to me tell you practically every day that I love Brendon Urie, right? I'm sure yall have missed that. :)

2. [livejournal.com profile] wendy is awesomesauce, and she has compiled an updated list of different Big Bangs!!

3. Speaking of Big Bangs... what's going on with BBB this year? Not that I was gonna sign up, but I do have 12k words of hs au still, lol. Why do I never finish anything??

4. So everyone else is doing that "ask me about the first time I did something meme", but I honestly have such a hard time remembering things that I'm gonna pass. But I love reading everyone else's answers!

5. It's snowing outside. YUCK. It's gonna suck to be Harley tomorrow if the close schools, because I'm gonna leave the boys with her if that happens...

6. I'm kinda amused that our current email chain is still the one that was started on Jan 3.

7. I wrote comment fic in this post, if anyone was interested.

8. I never posted any Christmas pics on here. Actually, I don't even think I put them on facebook. *fail* Someone remind me on Thursday or Friday to share pics. I know everyone wants to see Illy's first Christmas!

9. Of the six women I know that are currently pregnant, five are having boys. Amy isn't far enough along yet to find out, but she'd better have a girl. We have SO MUCH baby girl stuff to share! :P

10. I have nothing else to say but I had to make this an even number. *smooches*

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

... Wait, you're not surprised? Huh. Well, it's been a while, so I figured I'd better remind you. :)

Thank you, Dallon, for making my night!

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... )

I just wanna say there are two things that I will eventually master: finishing fics I start, and not writing things when I say I'm not going to write them.

It's not quite Monday, but it is my bedtime, and it'll probably be midnight by the time I get this post finished. April 12 is the 23rd birthday of a very special boy. I love his stupid little face, and I hope he has a fantastic one, especially if it involves: a) drunken shenanigans, b) his GMB bandmate Spencer, c) new music for us, or d) all of the above.

Also, even though I still have three dozen drabbles that have never been typed up, the first five people to comment with a Brendon-centric prompt will get a drabble.

Warning: probably not dial-up safe, mostly older pics b/c I was cheating by finding pics anyway, possibly some repeats, not in any particular order, pics stolen from various places around the intrawebs. Also, from the pics I have here, it looks like I'm a Brendon/Jon shipper. Idk where that came from.

a ridiculous number of pics )
why_me_why_not: (Default)
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

Happy Sunday!!!

The sun in shining and melting the snow, but that really just means that the roads are gonna be a mess in the morning after everything refreezes tonight. Hmmm.

+ Pete Wentz & Travis McCoy's BBFness makes me awwwwwww!

+ [livejournal.com profile] 14valentines

+ Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] a_is_for_amy!

+ Dragon Soul comes out June 8!

+ Favourite Sam Winchester Mannerisms Picspam by [livejournal.com profile] bellanut

+ [livejournal.com profile] exsequar's Empires concert recap, with pics and vids

+ Empires Tom/Sean fic! you told me just to breathe but you stole my breath by [livejournal.com profile] vlieger

+ Rewatching OZ, starting from Season 1. (I blame [livejournal.com profile] strangecreature, although OZ has been mentioned in multiple places around my flist the last few weeks.)

+ [livejournal.com profile] thebunnyknows wrote me a TU ficlet - I'll share a link when she posts it since she went to bed on me last night.

+ FIVE DAYS! Not only do I get The Used on Friday (and the Drive A babies, lol), but I get to see [livejournal.com profile] thebunnyknows and [livejournal.com profile] valerie_z and [livejournal.com profile] sinsense! YAY!!

+ Oh, Discos. WTF? *hearts*

Sometimes dead people grab a few things at the grocery store. )
why_me_why_not: (Default)
Want some random ficlets? Several of you have already seen these by emails, but if anyone else is interested...

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

725 words of Bob/Patrick

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

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

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

425 words of Brendon/Patrick

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

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

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

Brendon opens his eyes slowly, cautiously. The past couple days are a hazy blur, a mishmash of nightmare and hallucination. It feels strange to wake up to clear – if dim – light and quiet. )
why_me_why_not: (Default)
It's quite possible that I posted this one before, but I can't find it anywhere, so I may just be thinking that I've shared it quite a bit via email? Either way.

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

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

Two nights in the same hotel doesn’t happen ever, but somehow it does. )
why_me_why_not: (Default)
More fic-type things? (note, there's no way I'm gonna finish enough prompts for a bingo on my [livejournal.com profile] cliche_bingo card so I'm just throwing some of my random ideas out to you. I have no idea how I've ended up with so much half-written crap lately.)

175 words for [livejournal.com profile] desticex, who asked for Dan/Quinn, coffee, hammer, cold.

There were at least three inches of snow on the ground and they were out here making a video. )

300 words of jealous!Spencer.

Spencer had the dvd loaded up, a bowl of popcorn with that seasoning Brendon like, and a blanket big enough to share, but no Brendon. )

425 words of the beginning of Brendon/Spencer mpreg.

Brendon tries Spencer's phone for the tenth time that day, but it's still going straight to voicemail. )

OMG YALL I HAVE THE BESTEST FRIENDS EVER!!!! *SMISHES YOU ALL IN A SUPER GIGANTIC GROUP HUG* Giving me drabble prompts, entertaining me while I'm at work, writing me fic about Bob and Patrick and PIE (seriously, I was skipping out of work reading that shit, omg), and then I get home and find this:

under a cut b/c I can't figure out how to resize )


Okay, I'm gonna go type up all the stuff in my notebook. Remember when I used to ask for drabble prompts and actually write 100 word drabbles? What happened to those days? :P
why_me_why_not: (funnification)
Random ficishness.

400 words for [livejournal.com profile] nearlycloudy, who asked for The Used + rainbow sprinkles.

Late night munchies in the middle of nowhere, a stop at Walmart for Ultimate Sundae fixings made perfect sense. )

Both [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface and [livejournal.com profile] ashlein asked for Brendon/Spencer HS AU. So I went back and pulled some old prompt words from [livejournal.com profile] notthequiettype: bumper cars, high school reunion, texting. 450 words.

Brendon knew he was a daydreamer. He couldn’t help it, okay? )

450 words for [livejournal.com profile] maryangel200, who asked for Bob/Frank, pasta, couch, horror movies.

Frank had never understood the appeal of snowy days spent in Bob’s Chicago apartment, but Bob claimed to love them. )
why_me_why_not: (blame lesa)
Yall know [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 is awesome, right? Well, if you didn't know, now you do. [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 = AWESOME!!

So, there's this whole little 'verse we've created about werewolf!Empires (and werewolf!panic puppies!) and it mostly exists between us and [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface and [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy and maybe whoever else [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 texts fic to during the day, but last week she wrote me a snippet out of that verse that yall should totally read.

Also, Friday was [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface's birthday. I know there was a lot of Spencer Smith love going on around this corner of fandom that day since it's common knowledge that [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface has a little thing for Spencer. But some of us also wrote her fic!

I'm gonna link [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000's first, b/c she is made of win and this totally made my weekend.

A Thousand Words
Brendon/Spencer, Shane || adult || 1565 words
"No copies. You get the memory card, you decide what happens to any and all photos."

Shane packed up his bedroom and most his photography equipment when he moved from his and Brendon's place to the new apartment with Regan, but there are things he's missing. He's still got his key to the old place, so it's nothing to stop by one afternoon and pick up the Canon Rebel he uses for casual photography and the extra Wii remote (that is his no matter how much Brendon protests that it was purchased jointly; the fucker can afford to buy his own, especially now that he's got Spencer sharing housing expenses).

And I also wrote something for [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface, b/c I LOVE HER!

Untitled || Brendon/Spencer || 723 words

An increasingly inebriated Brendon had been bestowing increasingly enthusiastic kisses on various members of the party. No band member, tech, or merch guy was safe. )

Hotel Night
bandom (patd) || Brendon/Jon || Adult || 775 words
Disclaimer: not mine, all false
Summary: Brendon + Jon + hotel night

A/N: written for [livejournal.com profile] playfullips -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUN! Beta'd by [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000, thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface for being her encouraging/enabling self. All mistakes and inconsistencies are mine. Inspired by this image from [livejournal.com profile] vic_ramsey's epic Brendon/Jon picspam

There’s really no such thing as a bad hotel night, but this one is starting out better than most. )
why_me_why_not: (happy birthday)
Today is [livejournal.com profile] thedogstarlives's birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HUN!!

Have some Spencer Smith for your birthday: (in random order and snagged from various places around the internet)

Just a few Spencer pics )

Happy Birthday, sweetie! I hope it was a good one!
why_me_why_not: (balloons)
[livejournal.com profile] thedogstarlives is graduating high school this week. Congratulations, hun! I wanted to make her a picspam in celebration, and she asked for Panic At the Disco and the Boys (and Girls!) They Love? Pics of Panic loving on each other and other people! \o/! It kinda turned into a hugging picspam, lol, but that’s totally a form of loving!

panic boys loving on each other and other people! )
why_me_why_not: (Default)
GUESS WHAT? It's my birthday! Someone should totally make me a picspam of The Used to celebrate! :P

I made a picspam of a completely different sort for [livejournal.com profile] playfullips, and I had to be sure to include just pics of Jon & Brendon both, because Brendon is totally my favorite and Jon is... Jon, lol. Pictures stolen from various places on the intrawebs. Also, I fail at picspams b/c I never bother to comment on things. But the pictures are shiny!

JWalk & Bden )
Now, I'm gonna go think about something that is NOT Brendon and Spencer having sex on the patio of the beach house they've rented. Dammit. [livejournal.com profile] playfullips, [livejournal.com profile] ashlein, and [livejournal.com profile] shutyourface are all bad influences!
