Fic Rec: Neurotic and Sociopathic in Space by DeliriousEphemera (on fictionpress)
Summary: So your hot math teacher has a spaceship hidden in his basement. Oh, and he's a wanted criminal and you ended getting kidnapped by aliens. A little freaking out might be in order. Unless you're Jakob. Then it's the best thing that ever happened to you.
There are a lot of typos and SPAG type errors in this, but I like the snark? Also, it's completed, so that's a plus.

Don't you hate it when you stay up past your bedtime reading a gazillion words of a fic you've found yourself sucked in to and then realize it's a WiP? Me too. So, you're forewarned that these recs are WiPs, lol. At least they were both fairly recently updated?

Captive Prince by [livejournal.com profile] freece
Summary: Damen is the true heir to the throne, but when his half brother seizes power, Damen is captured, stripped of his identity and sent to serve the Prince of a rival nation as a pleasure slave.

Real Vampires Don't Sparkle by DeliriousEphemera on fictionpress
Summary: Matheus didn't ask for this. He just wanted a normal, boring life. One bad night, and now he was drinking blood, running for his life, questioning his sexual orientation and generally being a whiny b*tch. Well, that last part wasn't new. slash. snarky.

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

So, I totally fell asleep last night during the race, in the middle of txtng with [livejournal.com profile] snarkyrainbow and following livetweets from my NYC girls about PStump. Woke up around 2am, asked my brother who won the race (Matt Kenseth, for those keeping track), tried to play catch up on twitter/email but that didn't last very long. Seriously, I am SO TIRED these days, esp when I actually take meds for my headaches.

I'm kinda depressed that my brother is out here playing basketball with Davey, and Harley is planting flowers in the yard, and I can't do either. :( (Ronnie is at his other momma's house again) But it's a nice day, so I have the munchkin in her cage out here on the back porch. Roger and Maddie wanted us to come down to the lake for cookout/boatride/etc this evening, but I don't think I can handle that ride today. But Tim just came back from the store with steaks, so haha. He bought extra if anyone wants to come over for dinner, lol.

I've noticed that I have a bad habit of writing about nothing when I write fic. Like, one of the things I have up right now is 1500 words but half of it is really unimportant and pointless. Ridiculousness!

You may remember me saying something about [livejournal.com profile] apiphile writing Inception fic that was het and that I'd be disappointed if it was skipped over because of the pairing. You may also remember that I haven't seen Inception, but I like to read AUs and actually like to read fics by authors I like in fandoms I don't know because I can imagine the characters however I like in my own head. And it's easier than most with [livejournal.com profile] apiphile's fic, because I have read her original fic and even though TV and BPV aren't actually original fic, they are both worlds of their own. anyway, fic rec.

I loved this AU, a lot, and when I'm feeling more clearheaded I'm going to go back and reread it because I have comments for [livejournal.com profile] apiphile that I didn't leave for her the first time I read it. But yall should go read fic / enjoy the art & music / leave love for author and artist.

ProjectMMH.org is a website that serves as a resource for information about the Meet Me Halfway project and the issue of foster youth who "age out" of the foster care system and face serious life problems such as homelessness and poverty. ProjectMMH.org also organizes the Meet Me Halfway Street Teams, a national network of volunteers who work in local communities to raise awareness of Project Meet Me Halfway. Currently, Jimmy Wayne and Project Meet Me Halfway are exploring the idea of building a facility for aged-out foster youth and homeless youth. The project is only in the conceptual stage now, but many volunteers with many different skills will be needed. Would you be willing to share your skills to help build a youth facility?

Still being super unproductive. Did have a good day on Saturday at Martinsville, despite the headaches and the fact it was super cold and windy and the Bass Pro team didn't win. With the storm rolling in today and that-time-of-the-month also rolling in, my headache last night and today has been epic. Also, my dad and I finished the bedroom downstairs last week, and even though it was decided that Tim would take that room until he found a new place of his own, he didn't go get his bed this weekend like he planned on, so I'm still stuck trying to be polite and not keep the TV/light/my laptop on at night since he has to be up at the crack of dawn for work and we're sharing the living room. Dammit.

In happier news, or the real reason for this post, is that the stories for the Spring Fling Exchange at [livejournal.com profile] we_pimpin were posted yesterday. I probably should have rationed them out, but really, what better way to spend a Sunday recovering from an exhausting day of sun and socializing than by overdosing on Ray-fic? Here's the link to the Master Post but here are my favorites: (no authors, obviously, because author reveal isn't until next week)

When I See Tomorrow (I See You There)
Brad/Ray || NC17 || 
5000
 words
When people ask how they met, Brad usually says that Ray followed him home one day, like a demented puppy, and refused to leave.


Sunshine and Springtime
Brad/Ray; Nate/Ray || NC-17 || ~ 9,000 words
The long con of Nathaniel Fick.

You Call This Archaeology?
Brad/Ray || R, for all those creative expletives || 9779 words
Indiana Jones!Au. It’s one thing to talk about consulting with someone, but Brad’s not going to be responsible for keeping some wet-behind-the-ears pup in one piece.

72 Hours Libo
Brad/Ray || NC-17

 words
A weekend away from base doesn’t go quite as Brad and Ray expect.

Let the Engines Roar
Ray/Brad || PG-13 || 8,936 words
"You realize we don't do bikes, right? Like, yours is a beauty and I'd fucking love to make an exception, dude, but we're an auto repair shop." He starts walking inside to where Walt is manning the front, because hanging around by the Ducati is just awkward. He'd worry about being rude, except Ray kind of gave that up as a lost cause when he was fourteen. (Fast & Furious AU)

The places we've never been (but were always bound to end up)
Ray/Brad || R || 24,500 words
Brad’s been gone for two years, stopped talking to Ray at least a year before that. Fuck, they haven’t even been friends in almost five years. There doesn’t get to be a lazy, easy friendship between them anymore. Ray just wishes Brad had gotten the memo. warnings: adult language, adult situations, domesticity

Ugh. I am made of so much fail these days, you guys. I don't even know where to start. The worst part is, I didn't even realize how much I was failing, because it didn't dawn on me that I was actually in a depressive state because I'm not actually to the point of feeling suicidal. And on what fucking scale of normal does that equate? Blah.

Sorry to dump a bunch of whining on your flist pages. How about some links to make up for it?

Stay Awake When I'm Asleep by [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane
TSN RPF (Jesse Eisenberg/Andrew Garfield) || 36,000 words || Contents May Include: An ASTONISHING amount of curtainfic and schmoop. A lot of nonsense. Some sex.

Make your own joke about wolves by [livejournal.com profile] apiphile
Inception || Ariadne/Eames || PG || 2900
Summary: Oh like you didn't want to see Tom Hardy in a dress.
I should point out that I have never seen Inception, my only concept of the Inception characters is from [livejournal.com profile] apiphile's fic and ramblings, and I don't usually read het. But I generally love anything she writes enough to include it on my rec lists. So if anyone skips over it just because it's HET? I would be disappointed.

And speaking of het I don't usually read, I haven't read anything from HP fandom in a long time, but one of the pairings I did follow there was Granger/Snape, and this was written as a gift fic for a very lovely friend of mine:

The Granger Solution by [livejournal.com profile] talesofsnape
HP || Granger/Snape || slightly nsfw || ~22000 words || full of tension, flirting, wit, and banter
written for [livejournal.com profile] keladry_lupin

And the last link isn't a fic rec, but a link that was shared on twitter by Chip Coffey, who some of you may know from Paranormal State (stfu, I love that show! Even if I totally make up fic for the actors in my head sometimes, and think Ryan has gotten too big for his britches over the seasons.) or Psychic Kids on A&E. Either way, I kinda find Chip Coffey to be amusing and entertaining.

Ten Ways to Become More Psychic

Okay, so I'm gonna go pretend to sleep or pretend to be productive but really just end up watching bad movies on Netflix or tossing and turning in my bed while writing fic in my head that'll be forgotten by morning, but whatever. I love you guys, even when I'm being fucktarded because I'm fucking crazy. Stupid fucking bipolar.

I am failing at LJ right now. Actually, I'm failing at life, the internet, and everything right now, so I guess it's par for the course. But I have a list of things I wanted to post about, so I'm going to try and knock that out, then go tackle my inbox and comments, then my flist, then work on fic. Sound like a plan?

If this entry seems like a jumbled mess... well, that's because it is.

Kane's got a song - I think it's from the Live in London album - called Oklahoma State of Mind. Part of it goes NASCAR, strip bars, American made cars, country rockin' women now to get up and get 'em, we got Budweiser beer, Jim Beam, Jack, tequila and lime. Every time I hear that, I think it's totally a Ray Person song. Y/N?

Shameless is SO FREAKING GOOD and I am sad that this week is the finale already when I just got into the show! And I want a million words of all kinds of fic, so I hope there are other people into this. Also, Lip is totally my favorite. But Ian and Fiona are too. And the rest of them.

And I'm totally writing Being Human fanfic (for the US version), especially after Monday's episode.

Someone, I think it was [livejournal.com profile] exsequar, posted links on twitter to these pictures of Antartica's Blood Falls, which are pretty damn awesome.

Everyone seems to be hanging out on Tumblr and I'm still behind when it comes to the tumblr craze. Sorry!

A million and one things happened in regards to the panic boys. Brendon Urie is still my favoritest thing in the ENTIRE FREAKING WORLD. No surprise. But I can't tell you anything specific about what's going on with them because I'm failing at the internet. But! I did get a concert call the other night! So I have panic + screaming fangirls on my voicemail, which is a total win!

Kirsten Vangsness posted this pic of MGG and Shemar the other day and it's totally adorable, as those two are.

Wil Wheaton posted about a Stand By Me reunion. for anyone who doesn't know, Stand By Me is my all time favorite movie. ♥

I have this article from our local No Kill Coalition open in a tab, but I'm not sure what I wanted to do with it.

And I have this up as a reminder that I want to find/steal the song b/c it was recced to me when I was looking for songs to write to. ([livejournal.com profile] junebug_waltz totally made me an awesome playlist to write kitten!fic too, btw. she is made of win.)

I still have [livejournal.com profile] swear_jar's the gentle art of making enemies: cigarettes open on my screen because it doesn't have nearly enough comments on it and I keep meaning to find more people to rec it to and/or encourage to read it.

We were playing Scene It the other day at James's and no one knew the scenes from Footloose! And it was like the tractor scene! Who doesn't know that?!

I am sick and tired of being crazy. So over this bullshit.

Also over these headaches. And I'm worried that they're going to ruin my enjoyment of concerts. I haven't actually been to a concert since I started having them. I mean, I went to the Cobra/Travie concerts, but that was while I was severely concussed, lol, so that doesn't count. And I did go see Carrie Underwood & Billy Currington, but I felt like crap that entire time, and I don't know if that was the company and/or my general emotional state that week. I am so afraid that my enjoyment of Panic and NKOTB/BSB is going to be affected by this. And that my enjoyment of races is going to be affected. We're going to Martinsville next weekend, so I guess that'll be the test.

The other tabs I have open are related to job searching or my CEUs, and the other windows I have open are also related to job searching or to partially written fic. I don't think yall want that, do you? So, I'm going to try to tackle some of this other stuff. I will be so happy when we get my bedroom finished because trying to be quiet because my brother is sleeping is kinda boo. But he has to be up at 3am. Blah.

If I've missed something important, tell me here!

Good morning! Happy Friday!

I have to work on more CEUs today, which isn't all that fun, obviously. But at least I don't have to leave the house this morning. It's all cold and rainy and yucky outside again. We definitely need the rain, especially with the early start to fire season and the large number of forest fires we had last week, but I'm glad I don't have to go out in it.

Today is Bert McCracken's birthday. Last year on this day (lol), I took Monkeyface to see The Used in concert and he got the band to sign his shoes and he and Bert are "buddies for life" now (according to Bert). I love that pocketsized crazy dude.

Want some more links?

I've been reading original fic lately instead of fandomy stuff, and the story I read last night was cute, so I figured I'd share. Half a Lie by [livejournal.com profile] silver_etoile. Two months ago, Cody kissed his best friend. It's a good way to start a Friday. :)

Also, I'm a little late on this, but I got this link from over at [livejournal.com profile] more_is_more: Warm and Fuzzy Heart Day Icons

Most of yall are more tumblr savvy than I am, but I figured I'd ask anyway - have you seen this picture of Misha and Jensen? And this one of James Franco's cat nap? :)

DUDE! THIS WEEK IS ALL ABOUT AWESOME POSTS ON MY FLIST!!

Favorite authors posting fic is always A++, so let's start there:

Shelter by [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique
Shelter || 2800 words || Porn with a dash of sexual orientation questioning || Title comes from the movie this is loosely intended to be a prequel to- see it. Surf dudes having feelings and sex, what more could you want? Seeing the movie is massively unnecessary for reading, though, it's intended to stand entirely on its own.

Memoirs: Epilogue also by [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique
Porn || Features fluff and warm fuzzy feelings.
(goes along with The Curious Case Of The Firecrotch: This Is Why We Don't Write Our Memoirs While Drunk, Ben., which [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique wrote with [livejournal.com profile] apiphile)

And [livejournal.com profile] apiphile has ruined me for Inception. I still haven't seen the movie (yes, I do live under a rock, I think this has previously been established), but Del mentioned earlier that I'm probably going to be disappointed that the movie is not actually wall-to-wall porn. SHE WOULD NOT BE WRONG!

Summer by [livejournal.com profile] apiphile
Inception || 3,100 words || Ariadne/Eames

And speaking of fandoms I'm not in, [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane wrote Jesse Eisenberg/Andrew Garfield fic. I'm not in TSN RPF fandom! I barely know who Andrew Garfield is!! But this fic is adorable and hysterical and I love it SO MUCH and her Justin is quite possibly my favorite thing about the fic, except that the entire thing is my favorite. (“What you need to do,” said Justin, totally ignoring him, “is send him a naked picture of yourself. That’s how this shit works. I saw it on To Catch A Predator.”)

Don't Carry It All by [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane
25,000 words of Jesse/Andrew awkwardnes goodness, with a healthy dose of Justin.
It started because Justin decided to set up a dating profile for Jesse against his will.

Also on my flist this week, this awesomely happy-making multi-fandom picspam from [livejournal.com profile] sonicbookmark (who I adore and am going to kidnap so we can run away and get married), several awesome recaps from LA CON from [livejournal.com profile] wendy (complete with pictures!), PatD concert and m&g recaps from [livejournal.com profile] sunsetmog, pictures from [livejournal.com profile] pecos's Asia Adventures, and lots of flailing about Discos and PStump and MF'ing EMPIRES (yall have all gone to vote for them, right?)!

This is totally a happy week!!
why_me_why_not: (Default)
Okay, so I have three fics in progress (one for [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 about Baby Belle, since I never sent it to her last week and is technically just a snippet); one for [livejournal.com profile] swear_jar, which I'm going to pretend is her birthday present so as to explain the delay in finishing it; and one for [livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie) and a post I wanted to make about my weekend. And I have a shiny new laptop!! I also have a headache, but no one will be surprised to hear that.

Instead of all those things, though, right now I'm going to talk about helping your fellow LJ-ers and also throw out a couple fic recs!

I am selfish enough to put a link to my own stuff first, so if you haven't had a chance to check out my Relay for Life post, please do so. :)

[livejournal.com profile] apiphile has a post here where she is offering words for donations made to [livejournal.com profile] soda_and_capes or [livejournal.com profile] myselftheliar. For details and/or information about what they need donations for, check that post.

[livejournal.com profile] danacias brought this Groupon deal to my attention, and the offer runs through midnight EST tonight, so I'm going to steal part of the post she made about this.

If you're reading this, there is a good chance you know - or know of - [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane. More specifically, you may know that she teaches at a public school in New York, and that she encourages her students to participate in the book club she runs. Approximately 25 kids are currently signed up, but very few of them can afford to buy the books they collectively decide to read, and the public libraries usually only carry a few copies of a given book, so most of the books the students read are purchased by [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane or by flisters who are able to pitch in for books.

If you've got $10 available for the book club, the current NYC Super Groupon from Barnes & Noble would actually give the class $20 worth of books. So if their next book is $9.99 each, they could buy two books with one Groupon. So, you know, if you can spare $10 for a Groupon for her class, it would be wildly appreciated. By me, by her, by the kids in the book club. If not, no worries. Really.

Again, here is the link for the current Super Groupon from Barnes & Noble. Basically, you buy the groupon and forward the email confirmation or just the coupon code to [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane. (of course, if you want to use this groupon for yourself, it's a good deal any way you go)

Background: [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane teaches high school students (9th - 12th grade) but uses 6th grade textbooks because so few of her students enter her class able to read at proper grade level. She commits a lot of time and effort into creating lesson plans that will motivate her students to do part of their assigned homework, so the fact that she has kids reading harder material in their free time because of her encouragement is kind of amazing.

Now, fic recs:

A Steady Diet of Sodapop and Ritalin by [livejournal.com profile] jmc_bks
GK Brad/Ray AU, ~4400 words
Summary: Brad likes elevator music and musical theater; Ray decides he must be schooled in real music.
I adore this whole AU that J has created, and I am so glad that she is writing fic and sharing it. I love her Brad and Ray - and the mention of Gabe Saporta - and I know she is staying a little under the radar, so I'm hoping that some of you will go read this and leave her some encouraging comments. I promise you'll like it.

The Curious Case Of The Firecrotch: This Is Why We Don't Write Our Memoirs While Drunk, Ben. by [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique and [livejournal.com profile] apiphile
A Fail Noir Adventure
Rated Not Appropriate For All Audiences for swearing, drunken pillow fucking, scandalous histories, and detailed erotic encounters of the homosexual persuasion.
Approximately 22,000 words in length
okay, so I may have had a reaction of a high pitched squee and hand clapping when I saw this. I haven't even started reading yet, but I am so excited to see new fic from these two - I love it when they write together. (not to say I don't love their individual writing as well) I plan on spending my evening curled up with my shiny new laptop reading this.

Okay, I'm going to try to take something else for my headache because I have to start some laundry and stuff before I go pick the boys up from karate. <3

Merry Christmas! Hope everyone who was celebrating had a wonderful day, and stayed warm, and didn't get arrested for the murder (or attempted murder) of family members! For those of you who weren't celebrating Christmas, I hope you're having an excellent weekend!

Here in the mountains, the stupid snow won't stop fucking falling, even though the predictions were for a light dusting. Ha. There were a good four or five inches on the ground when I got home earlier, and that was hours ago. And if you saw my tweet about my brother wrecking his truck, you'll be happy to know that Drewber is okay. A little banged up, but perfectly capable of celebrating his 21st birthday on Monday with no ill effects. His truck, on the other hand, is totalled, which is unsurprising since he rolled it down an embankment.

Stupid snow, seriously.

Also, if you txtd me holiday wishes and I didn't respond, it's because I DON'T KNOW WHO THE FUCK YOU ARE!

I'm still getting used to my new phone, but I have figured out how to email long, rambly bits of crack fic to [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000, how to look at the pics of PJ Ransone on [livejournal.com profile] swear_jar's tumblr, how to read fic, and (hopefully) how to post to LJ.

So, on the subject of fic. [livejournal.com profile] yagkyas! I have to say that the fic that was written for [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 (one foot in front of the other) has already earned a spot in my heart as one of my all-time favorite things. It's hs au, which I'm sure yall are surprised to hear I love, and is just too awesome for words. Also, the fic that was gifted to [livejournal.com profile] thebunnyknows (It’s Not Love At First Sight (Because This Isn’t a Country Song)) has excellent Ray!voice.

For an actual fic rec, though, for all of you who get to enjoy your Sunday lazing around the house and playing on the internet (unlike myself, who has to work twelve fucking hours), I present you with links to fic built on the current pairing of my heart.

The best thing about this pairing and these fics is that you can read them and appreciate the awesomeness without having to be in GK fandom or have a background knowledge of GK canon.

These are both written by [livejournal.com profile] marycontraire, who is evil in that awesome way where she has me wanting a million more words of Stafford/Christenson, and I may make ridiculous noises of glee when I see her name come up on new fic posts.

I'll give you the porn link first.

cocked, ready to let it go
I'm sure that yall are shocked to find out that biting is my bulletproof kink, right? No? Oh well. GO READ THIS AND ENJOY THE YUMMY BITING SEX!

And the actual, 11K+ story that yall should read, whether you're in the fandom or not: tear down the house that i grew up in (i'll never be the same again)

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

LINKS!

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

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

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

645 words of Tomrad/SVV.

Tom knows just how well Sean translates to film. )

So, [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 wrote fic! It is awesome & I love it & I've loved it since she first mentioned thinking about it.

Five moments in the birth and maturation of a "thing"
adult || ~2600 words
Generation Kill || Mike Wynn/OFCs

Complete fiction based on the performances of actors in the TV series, meant to imply absolutely nothing about real people.

go read & leave some love for [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000!

So, [livejournal.com profile] apiphile said this: I need to find a comm for fannish discussion which centres on the quality, style, and execution of writing. Something which talks about how information is fed to the audience, about how things are paced, about the craftsmanship of the storytelling in the text (be it written or filmed) rather than the content of the writing/the story. I want to talk about how the author achieved X and Y effect, their choice of dialogue, their use of adverbs, their pacing and their sentence lengths, etc.

And by "not the content" I mean I don't want essays about how such and such may or may not have been racist, I am not interested in the social issues brought up by the story or the number of queer character or if women were correctly depicted. I am not interested in character detail or world-building at this point. I *am* interested in plotting processes and what evidence can be seen of particular types in a finished product.


And, after the chiming in of a few others, [livejournal.com profile] criticalfandom was created!

For:

Fannish discussion of media (TV, films, books, comics) which focuses on the quality, style, and execution of the writing.

Discussion of how information is fed to an audience, at what speed and through what means.

Questions about how particular effects were achieved in writing; about the craftsmanship involved.

Debate about how specific texts (TV, films, books, comics) could have been improved; whether extra scenes or fewer ones were necessary.

Discussion of dialogue, of adverb and adjective choice, of euphony, of authorial style, of pacing and of sentence lengths.

Questions about terminology are also welcomed.

Join and pimp so we can get the ball rolling and some content up in here. I'm excited for this. Talk about how your favourite stuff is written! YES.

(If you join... or hey, if you don't... pimping of the comm would be much appreciated. It's brand spanking new and needs members to make it work. PLEASE PIMP?)

(Credit goes to [livejournal.com profile] swear_jar for this post, b/c I am a thieving thief who thieves. And I like her words.)

Yall, guess what?? I stepped on the scale and it says 199.5! It's been a long time since I saw this side of 200 pounds, lol. But that means I've lost almost 14 pounds in the last 2 months! AND! It's my fat week, so that means I'm doing good, right?

Okay, in less TMI info. OMG YALL I READ THE AWESOMEST WINCEST FIC!! Okay, so technically I beta'd it, but that totally counts as reading! And yall should go read it too!

dig your thumbs in by [livejournal.com profile] swear_jar
SPN || Dean/Sam || 12,000-ish words || NC-17
Warning: breathplay, D/s overtones.
Notes: Written for “breathplay” on kink_bingo card. Title from “Midlife Crisis” by Faith No More. Pre-series but not underage.

It's so delightfully fucked up and OMFGHOT and there is snark and fighting and sex and YUM! GO READ IT!

Also, weeks and weeks ago, I was supposed to post the answers to these 5 questions that [livejournal.com profile] pushingyouaway gave me. Oops?

ask me )
why_me_why_not: (blame heather)
[livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 is the bestest. Yall should go tell her so!

Four Eyes
GK glasses!kink PWP || Brad/Nate || adult || ~1050 words

(Also, hypothetically, if I were to write - or possibly cowrite - GK Alien Invasion AU, someone would read it, right? *sigh* One day I will find a fandom where I actually stick to my claims that I won't write fic.)

(Also, also. *points to icon* She is such a bad influence on me & I love her.)
why_me_why_not: (I Fucking Love You)
HEY, THERE IS GRASS GROWING IN MY BACKYARD!!! Yall probably don't understand how significant this is, but OMG IT IS!!

*points to icon* This applies to each and every one of you on a daily basis, but today it's pretty much reserved for [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique, [livejournal.com profile] strangecreature, & [livejournal.com profile] apiphile.

Holdon's birthday is this week and there is supposed to be a shared birthday party for him tomorrow afternoon, but I just got a phone call that there is going to be a separate small party / cookout for him this afternoon for the other side of the family this afternoon but that he and James would really like it if me and the boys could be there. But my Saturday plans are mostly "clean house" and "grocery shop" and "read fic one of my new books", especially since there's a storm front moving in this afternoon.

Speaking of reading:

1. I didn't get my copy of Dragonsoul because NO ONE IN THE FREAKING VALLEY has it, so it had to be ordered for me. :(

2. THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO SPEND MY DAY READING, SO IT'S GOING TO BE MY REWARD FOR GETTING THE HOUSE CLEAN!!!!

Ours Is a Criminal and Uncouth Love (Prisonverse) by [livejournal.com profile] stratospherique, [livejournal.com profile] strangecreature, & [livejournal.com profile] apiphile
Bandom AU || approximately 54,000 || NC-17 || mainly Frank/Bob
Warnings: some dub-con, buttsex, questionable ethics, legal research done by watching Law and Order and skimming Wikipedia.
Summary: LONG ASS PORN ANGSTY LULZ. And, like, acceptance and personal growth and shit. But mostly ANGST PORN GIGGLES.

I have been waiting for MONTHS for this to be finished, omg. I am gonna have to stay away from the internet so I won't spend the afternoon reading it before I get my actual chores done.

3. Also, I'm waiting on recs from BBB, but I've already heard good things about Possibilities in Basic Space, the zombie!The Used fic by [livejournal.com profile] schneestern. SO EXCITED!!!

Had to go by my daddy beer and cigarettes last night, then spent forever over there while he set off fireworks for the kids in the middle of the street. We were making plans to spend 4th of July weekend at the lake - pig roast & live band & fireworks & all sorts of other nonsense. I'm actually really looking forward to it. I just gotta remember to buy the boys new life vests for the boat b/c they've definitely outgrown the kid sized ones they had last year.

also, we're going on a huge family camping trip the weekend after that, so that's two weekends in a row that I'll be away from civilization with no cell or internet access. Good times? *g*

Oh, and Matt said he'd move to Texas with me and the boys, lol. Seriously, so tempted. <3
