So, in taking a page out of [personal profile] cathalin's book

I couldn't go without doing Yuletide so I ended up posting a Treat! (The people who offered to help or couldnt help but were sweet about saying no nicely I love your faces).

In the GRAND Yuletide tradition, if you can guess which my fic is, I will (try to) write you a ficlet in any fandom I've written in in the past, say, year(including the fandom I wrote the treat for :D).

CLUES:
1. it is UNDER 2000 words (Stop laughing. I can still write stories that short. No seriously I can. Why are you laughing?)
2. it is in a fandom i have never written in before
3. it is explicit for sexual content
4. it is a heterosexual ship

Additional bonus clue:
5. it is a historical piece set sometime in the 20th century but is not Downton Abbey.

Please at least guess? I wanna know what you THINK even if its not on the money. I just really love this game.

RECS LATER! I ALREADY HAVE ONE! BECAUSE YULETIDE! WHEE!
dancinbutterfly: (Hunger Games - Let the Games Begin)
This looks like fun so I borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon.

1. Go to page seven of your most recent WiP
2. Count seven lines down
3. Copy and paste the next seven lines of text

Gerard makes a point of getting on the train early. He hates the Hunger Games, loathes them. Waking up screaming in his bed at night over what he did to win his year is a regular occurrence but since there are other Mentors in District 10, he gained the chance not to have to participate in the Reaping anymore. His fellow Victor Mark sits on stage during the Reaping instead, representing the Victors of District 10, smile plastered on like it's all good fun because he and Gerard have a deal. He's twenty years older and he puts on the public show at the Reaping for Gerard, bless the man, in exchange for Gerard doing all the one on one duties with the Tributes on the train.

I've heard people say that writing is hard because you have to make decisions, but we never really talk about the decisions we make with stories or why we make them. We talk about plot bunnies, but not about how we actually turn them into a story.

And it seems like a lot more fun to do that than to work.

So, if you wanted, ask me questions! Anon commenting is on, if you feel shy. Or ask your flist to ask you questions.

What were you trying to do [here]? Why did you decide to ____? This is what I thought about xyz, is that what you were going for? What made you write ____? And so on.


Ask me anything. Please. I am trying to write on my bandom reverse big bang and I'm stuck. This sort of thing always helps me me get my creative juices flowing.

Today was my last day of my treatment at Ridgeview. I was a little nostalgic to be perfectly honest. I was there for 6 weeks and it involved a LOT of work on some seriously big picture stuff. But I'm done there and found out three hours ago that I'm heading over to a new hospital called Skyland Trail. This is AWESOME because Skyland does things very differently than Ridgeview. At Ridgeview there was a high volume of group/talk therapy and an incredibly large volume of lectures. Skyland is putting me on a program with something called Dialectical Behavior Therapy(I dont know what that really means either) and structured practical and recreational therapy options. So on top of group talk therapies and meeting with doctors there will be the option of exercise therapy, art therapy, music therapy, nutritional therapy, horticultural therapy even - on top of the group style stuff and meeting with doctors. This is super awesome and I'm really excited because it should help me...actually do the things I need to do to live an active and healthy life. So, things are looking extremely good from here over my long weekend.It feels awesome to make a POSITIVE post about my mental health you guys.

So in celebration - THAT AWESOME DOMESTIC MEME! Feel free to ask for multiple pairings and also feel free to ask for any couple you've heard me talk about including fic-specific versions of pairings!. (Suggestions of available fandoms: Bandom, Haven, Entourage, The OC, Venture Bros Fringe, Dexter, Farscape, anyone mentioned in the pairing guessing meme, and anything else you know I've talked about positively)

Name a pairing that you know I like and I will tell you:

who is the big spoon/little spoon
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
who uses all the hot water in the morning
what they order from take out
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
who does most of the cleaning
what has a season pass in their DVR
who controls the netflix queue
who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working
who steals the blankets
who leaves their stuff around
who remembers to buy the milk
who remembers anniversaries

This is my last week at Ridgeview Day Hospital. After that I'll probably be transfering to a different, longer term day program but its still uncertain. I'm trying not to think about this!

So in the grand tradition of [livejournal.com profile] tabula_x_rasa, [livejournal.com profile] tuesdaysgone, [livejournal.com profile] jezrana and [livejournal.com profile] mizubyte who I stole it from - the DVD commentary meme! I am a fan of navel-gazing memes especially since I am in fact meant to be working on Other Things. I'll answer DVD commentary/Q&A type questions about my fic if anyone wants to ask them. My masterlist is up to date on bandom minus comment fic type stories (one day I will fix this) but the fanfic tag on my LJ will take you to deeper and darker places like my Entourage fic or my older and dustier stories from long past ala The OC or Drake and Josh. Anyway, yeah. Please to be asking questions yall? I'm stuck on what I should be doing and memes like this almost always loosen me up. YOURE DOING A GOOD DEED IF YOU PLAY! :D

Also - completely unconnected to this meme or my emotional state in regards to treatment: Lets reflect for a moment that we live in a world where My Chem(the group English newspapers accused of being a suicide-encouraging death cult) does a song on Yo Gabba Gabba about how everyone is special. Life is lovely isnt it?

For those of you here for the fic and shit rather than the personal stuff - I posted an old but revised ~400 word peek of Slideverse over here for "show and tell" at [livejournal.com profile] wrisomifu. I've opened this and another one back up for the writing of November. I know some of you guys are following me for Slideverse in particular and thought you might like the look. The comm is locked so you can read it here under the cut if you like.

I am not okay and I'm working on that but I mention some ways in brief that might possibly trigger so - cut for courtesy. )

As always - one of the few really great distractions from my life is fandom. The last few meme's have helped me find something to think about besides my insanity and recovery so, hey, lets do another one (Note: to two or people with unanswered meme questions, my computer rebooted and I lost EVERYTHING I had written for you, so yours should be done by tomorrow evening EST)!

So writing memes. Take your pick of one or both!

1)If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach. —Alfred Hitchcock
When I write a story (or a poem!), what do readers immediately look for?


or an oldie but a goodie!

2)The timestamp meme: Choose one of my fics and give me a timestamp - e.g. two weeks before or five years later - and I'll write you a comment or ficlet telling you what happened.

Multiple requests welcome!

Things are shit. My beloved London is in chaos(To my even more beloved Londoners - PLEASE STAY SAFE! You're in my thoughts.). My mother and I cannot seem to stop fighting. I'm fairly sure that my moderate crazy with food is in fact a full blown ED and completely separately I have been swinging back and forth between frothing rage and crippling despair (going insane basically) and am back to going to 12 Step Meetings.

So. There's only one thing to be done! POST ANOTHER DISTRACTY MEME! There are so many really cool ones going around lately. I dig this one - ask away.

Give me the name of one of my fics, and I'll give you three details that didn't make it into the fic. Background canon, deleted scenes, or a look into the future. My choice, but if you have a specific question you can ask it in your request.

Multiple requests always welcome.

I love this one because it's just an idea. I dont have to actually, ya know, produce fic :D

The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I write AND give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU, superhero AU, etc) or another time period (Ancient Rome, Regency England, etc). I will then explain the gist of the story I would write for that AU.

Feel free to add pairings or multiple requests.


Fandoms: Bandom, Xmen First Class, Captain America: First Avenger, and anything else you know I'm into :D

So, Saturday was the My Chem gig. I have video, lots of it, because my camera died an ugly ugly death (i'm REALLY upset about this) and it was fantastic. [livejournal.com profile] bebunny wrote my killjoy name - Storm Surge - on my neck and there was much clustering and chatting. [livejournal.com profile] ladyfoxxx has an EXCEPTIONAL concert report that is a lot more detailed and clear than mine. Also - hot. Oh my god hot. So hot that I came out of my t-shirt between The Blackout and MCR and was in just this neon green sports bra. Did you guys know that UK venues give out water at shows? They dont do that in the US you guys. It's kind of awesome. And pursuit of said water sort of seperated me from the group and suddenly I'm in the pit and I can't even see my girls anymore /o\ Ooops. That said? Awesome awesome AWESOME fucking gig. Gerard Way. You are a ridiculous adorable human being and I love you. Please continue to make sex noises and high kick and make jazz hands for the rest of time. Love me. The video will be up *waves a hand* at some point. Probably when I go over to Fox's and steal her decent internet.

In other news - I AM MAKING PROGRESS ON MY BANDOM BIG BANG! HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS ITS A MIRACLE! :D Also, my dramatic writing classes make my life. Seriously. I live and die for Mondays. AND AND AND! IN MARCH?! WE ARE TAKING A TOUR OF THE BBC! *points at her icon* This was me in class when our teacher told me this. Seriously. The BBC. THE BEEB! I GET TO GO ON A TOUR WITH A GUY WHO USED TO WORK FOR THEM! HOW AMAZING IS THAT YOU GUISE?!

In news of things that are awesome, my mother has recently made friends with one of the DJ of the Atlanta alternative radio stations. She's awesome that way. The two of them bonded over the value of fatherhood and how she plays Muse for her 9 and 10 year old ESOL students. He calls her The Muse Teacher on the radio. Isn't she cute? Anyway, so she was talking to him yesterday and My Chemical Romance came up - as it does and my mother, ever the soldier for the cause, was like "My daughter saw them in London Saturday! She's going to see them in Manchester next Friday and then somewhere else on Saturday." and apparently he was like wow, I wish I was her, to which my mother said "We all wish we were her." which is cute. But then the DJ said "I don't know what we're doing when My Chem comes to Atlanta but the station always has something so give me a call when we get closer to May and I'll try and get you guys in."

.......

MY MOTHER LADIES AND GENTLEMAN. HOW FUCKING AWESOME IS THAT? ANSWER? VERY FUCKING AWESOME. It may not work out but seriously, this station does like...live sessions for small groups of like 50 people? IF THIS WORKS OUT I WILL ACTUAL FAX DIE OF JOY. NO REALLY. So. Yeah. I had to share.

And in closing - I'm totally going to throw up the WIP meme that is going around to help get me working on my projects.

Post the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. Feel free to ask about anything, as many of them as you want, and I'll tell you the premise or paste you a tidbit for any of these.
Holy crap there are a lot of these /o\ )
