I need a vacation from my vacation

I'm back from St. Thomas! I'm all rummed out, I'm way tan, I have mysterious bug bites on my calves and feet, I'm exhausted. I also swam just about four feet over the biggest stingray I've ever seen - about ten feet long, four feet wide, just the creepy blinking eyes were enormous - and we swam with sea turtles, one came up for air inches from my face, it was so awesome. Sea turtles are the coolest. AND I got stung by something, possibly a sea urchin, even though all I did was lean up against a wooden ladder to a dock. I had to douse my arm in vinegar for a night, but it faded by the next day. Way less painful than a jellyfish sting, but still unpleasant. The iguanas there are like pigeons, I named the ones that hung around right outside our condo - Meegosh, Sanchez, Lolita, Manny and Junior.

I'm glad to be back, though, I missed my zoo. I have no energy to unpack. I hate traveling. I will probably be extremely unproductive this week, but it's not like I expected to get anything done anyway.

That's all I got. There's a cat settling down on my arms for a nice snuggle, so I gots to go take care of that.

too much with myself

Ahoy, there! Wow, this feels weird. Um, okay, it actually hasn't been all that long, I guess, but it seems like it's been really long. Anyway, I've finished my novel thing, thank fucking fuck. Man, that took forever, right? It's about 56 thousand words, and I've been mainlining the Lemonheads - god, the Lemonheads, shut up, they're kind of fantastic, okay? - because my main character has a thing about Evan Dando, and I can't think of a title for the life of me. It's, like, freaking impossible to name. My working title is "Whatever" so that is no help at all, and [livejournal.com profile] starflowers has told me adamantly that I cannot actually name it "Whatever." Darn it. She's also trying to convince me to try and get it legitimately published - which will be so so hard - even though my main character swears like a sailor and is generally an asshole. A lovable asshole, but there it is.

WHATEVER.

There are things finally afoot again over at [livejournal.com profile] sodamnskippy. I will hopefully be participating in our Christmas gift exchange, we shall see. Also, we're in the Urban Dictionary (under "Skippy"), which I think is hilarious.

I have not seen Inception, however I can't stop reading the Arthur/Eames fic. It's all extremely amazing. I never thought I had a well-dressed man fetish before, but I just want to read pages and pages about Arthur's suits, is that weird?

I'm also reading Kakashi/Iruka Naruto fic. That--I have no idea how I got so very into that, since I have no sense of the canon whatsoever. I was just innocently trolling delicious for werewolf fic one day and came across a fun Naruto fandom one, and then I got sucked into a whirling vortex of ninjas, idek.

In three days I will be leaving for St. Thomas until the 5th. I'm very excited to get away from here and my zoo, even though they will all be missed horribly. I will be living it up under the sun, snorkeling, reading fanfic on my kindle, being pestered into hikes and fishing trips with J, it's gonna be awesome.

ANYWHO: I'm not actually here, this is all an illusion *wavy hands* (feel free to let me know what you've been up to anyway).

holding pattern

Hi all! So I've really been afraid to define this, but it looks like I'm in the midst of a hiatus. You've probably already guessed, since I haven't been around much. I've been in one fandom or another since 2003, and I've never taken a break before, so I figure I'm due.

I'm still writing my original story, being ably cheered by [livejournal.com profile] starflowers and [livejournal.com profile] liquitexart, so that should be done at some point. It's basically about a kid in highschool who curses a lot and accidentally made out with a guy. So, you know, my usual fare.

I've been buying some ebooks from Dreamspinner Press. The covers alone get me hysterical, I mean, seriously.

Also, Tosh.0 is my new favorite show.

So, uh. That's it. Sorry.

Oooo, thunderstorm.

what's going on is going on

The heater exploded in our eel tank and killed Lenny, my lunar wrasse, and Deputy Steve, our awesome zebra moray eel, and I was SO UPSET. Lenny was badass, he hated everybody. Steve was a cool dude. They will be missed. But last weekend we went crazy in That Pet Place (you have to go crazy there, it's close to the best place on earth) and we got Rick, a little lunar wrasse just coming into his own, and Officer Kevin, a zebra moray with an awesome personality; I felt a little bad because he was the 'baby' of one of the fish staff people there, but we couldn't leave without him.

I want a writing nook. And a bird. A secret writing nook with teal walls and a big lovebird cage and no dogs or cats. J has promised to make this happen, but I have my doubts.

Boring life is boring.

that's mr tree beard to you, bucko

So I've realized the reason I can't write fic right now - I'm way too invested in my original fic, and I can only write one story at a time, so my guys are gonna have to finish their story first. I'm at 21k and it just keeps going and going, so it looks like it'll be a while! In the meantime, I'll probably continue to be extremely boring, sorry.

In other new, I am finding nothing interesting in fic-ville to read, either, but I'm on a werewolf kick, so I'd be delighted if you guys could rec me stories where one or both of the main characters are werewolves, in any fandom at all, even ones you don't think I read in (although I read in so much!). WEREWOLVES. THEY'RE HAIRY AND FUN.

good times

I miss the days when I actually had ideas and told you all about them. Apparently, once upon a time, I was interesting? Weird.

I'm working on and off on the Mike/Kevin nanny au that's turned into an au where the entire cast of Wizards of Waverly Place works in a magic shop. It's also the one where Kevin's parents died and he raised his brothers and Frankie hates him and his life is angst-filled and ridiculous.

Kevin is only back at the shop for a week before Jake corners him in the storeroom and says, “Someone’s looking for you.” )

my kingdom for a pony

guys, okay, I am SERIOUSLY BORED with fandom, this is a tragedy!! How do I rekindle my love? I can't even write anything, it's just steadily getting WORSE. Maybe ask me questions about past fics? Any fics at all? Any fandom?? Whatever you want to know??

I'm also trying my hand at something original because [livejournal.com profile] starflowers is being encouraging and apparently I like writing pointless stories about kids in highschool, but who knows when I'll finish it, it's only about 13k words right now, and nothing has happened AT ALL.

UGH.

Skippy fic: And I Say It's All Right

And I Say It’s All Right | PG | 2,500+
Mike/Kevin pre-slash. Kevin gets a divorce, and turns into a cat. AU.

The day after his divorce is finalized, Kevin stretches out of a depressed stupor masquerading as sleep and realizes he has a tail.

A/N: Weird, vague, magical. Just go with it. Un-beta'd, title's from Here Comes The Sun.

this needs cheerleading

Because it's totally not going anywhere in my mind, but there needs to be more Joe/Bob in the world, right? Give me lame high school ideas that will go with this!

Joe normally doesn’t have any trouble making friends )

ugh

Head colds apparently lead to lounging around in bed, mainlining NCIS and Criminal Minds and coughing my head off. I think I told J at one point that I wished Gibbs was my dad. And I giggled. And then I snuggled him and said, or your dad, or my boss, or just around to give me hugs. Or kisses to the temple.

Here is something I wrote to be a sequel to The Hours Have Changed, centered around Victoria, that will probably never ever be finished:

It’s pouring. )

I fear your love is impure

So I could write a Mike/Kevin tragic nanny au, where there are parental deaths and angst and strained sibling relations, and where Kevin is lost and raising a kid that isn't his and living on Joe's couch.

I could also write a high school au where Bob lives out of his car and has a secret crush on Bill Beckett. Possibly Bob has an abusive uncle, and everyone thinks Bob's silent but deadly, when really he's just a cuddly teddy bear, and Frank's the new kid who makes himself Bob's instant BFF.

Neither are going anywhere at the moment, though :(

Beach Dog 'verse fic: Wondermutt

Wondermutt | R | 7,000+
Prequel to Found Days, Longer Than The Road, and Plays Out Like A Drum.
Kevin/Mike, Quinn/Bert, Butcher/Sisky, Gabe/VickyT, Blake, Bill, Lissa, Sam, Eddie & Mab, Zack, Brendon & Spencer

A guest-bands band deserves a story of stories. Scenes from the Wondermutt festival tour.

A/N: see Beach Dog’s timeline. I’m back in this world because of my new-found love of NCIS (Mark Harmon --> Summer School --> Wondermutt --> Beach Dog) and if you don’t get that reference, you should watch Summer School and pay close attention to my favorite little throw-away scene. End quote-ish thing that isn’t a quote is bastardized from the movie, because that beach dog totally parallels this Beach Dog, in ways that are smarter than me. Herein lies sex, babies and very little rock n’ roll. Oh, so self-indulgent, sorry.

I should write for Disney

I want to know where the fic is where Alex Russo gets sick of boys - she kicks out her latest boyfriend, he was so annoying, and kept talking about--stuff, Alex wasn't really listening, and wanted to snuggle after sex, which, just, ew, it's not like he's a werewolf; she kind of uses that stick to measure all guys, so she figures girls are the next logical step, it's not like she hasn't always been in love with Harper anyway - and uses Justin's 10-year-old son - since she isn't a wizard anymore, thanks Max - to trick Harper into marrying her. Stephen's all, "I don't know if we should be doing this," and Alex is all, "Lighten up, short stack," and bribes him with tickets to the Planetarium and a Mars bar and a quarter she found in Justin's pocket. And then at some point she'll be all, "Surprise, we're married! And have cats! Isn't this so great?" to Harper. Only because it's gone horribly wrong - like their apartment is filled with a dozen talking cats - she says it in that sheepish way that isn't really sheepish, she just doesn't want Harper to yell at her, so she stacks her toes and sort of says it to the ceiling with a half smile and jazz hands - because, really, talking cats are kind of freaking awesome, they can send them out to spy on the neighbors, like a talking cat army. Alex has the best ideas. And Justin has three sticks up his ass, but because he loves Alex - in a long-suffering, why do I have to be related to her? way - he forgives the use of his son and helps get rid of all the cats - except one, because talking. freaking. cat. - and undoes the binding agreement thing that apparently made Harper her slave, not wife - oops! - and Harper agrees to hold her hand and go see movies and make spaghetti with her, and possibly fool around on the couch at some vague point in time, because Harper's, "not a hussy, lady!" and then Alex grabs hold of the front of her cheese doodle vest and kisses her.

Like that.

No, wait, wait, just listen

So my mom and me saw Date Night on Saturday - possibly the funniest movie I've ever seen. I laughed so hard my voice was hoarse and my stomach hurt. Those two should always be in movies together. ANYWAY, you know shirtless Mark Wahlberg was a highlight, even with his weird hair, and it totally got me hankering for a Bill Beckett/Mark Wahlberg fic - I have no idea why! It just HAPPENED! So check this:

For some reason, Bill ends up having a part in a movie! He has no idea what he's doing! But he's, like, I'll try anything once, and there are strings pulled and things happen and call-backs or whatever, and suddenly he finds himself cast as a college student in a cops & robbers movie called The Ride Along. He gets to grow a mustache, because his character, see, is a criminal justice major who's riding along on cop beats - traffic mainly - and he's in the back seat of two cops (like Kevin James and Sean Murray) and, um, I don't know, they get out for some reason, and Bill's still locked in the back when the cop car is hijacked! by Mos Def and Mark Wahlberg!! Thieves of some sort!! and what happens is an epic road trip/chase ala Smokey and the Bandit/Tommy Boy/Men at Work - there is singing of The Rainbow Connection at some point. It's a comedy! And I put entirely too much thought into this fake movie instead of Bill's epic and inappropriate crush on Mark Wahlberg and how he handles working with him.

I can't stop sneezing.

That is all.

timelines are surprisingly hard work

I'm documenting a Beach Dog discography because I have nothing else to do with myself, writing wise. This is getting so pathetic :(

But it may turn into another Beach Dog 'verse fic, so let's hope this gets me out of my funk.

In other news, I want a grill, so J can cook me yummy things.

I should also stop taping Criminal Minds so I can catch up on the 25 I have left on my DVR.

danger, will robinson

So I've got writer's block. Seriously hardcore writer's block, it's so bad.

I've also got a shiny new TV in the bedroom, plus a DVR box, and since the bedroom is basically my domain, I've been spending a lot of time watching Criminal Minds. A LOT. I did not realize I liked crime shows, but Criminal Minds is on approximately fifty million times a day, and I've been taping all of them. I've formed an attachment to Reid, it's like he doesn't sleep or eat, he's all pale and elastic and there's these constant zombie circles around his eyes - I ask you, how is that attractive? And yet it is! I just want to bundle him up in blankets and feed him soup and pet his shiny hair.

I have also be reading Criminal Minds fic - and before you ask, no, I will not write it, I don't write in a lot of fandoms I read in - which has led to me reading NCIS fic, which has led me to watching NCIS the show, which I refuse to tape, because it's on just as much as Criminal Minds, and if my DVR is constantly taping, then I'm unable to watch anything else. I'm just going to wait until I catch up on CM, and then I'll start NCIS. I am obsessive about these things.

In other news, I thought my iPod was dead, but apparently I just let it run out of battery life? I don't know how that happened, I think maybe my charger wasn't plugged in right.

AND, here is your random trivia thingy of the day, week, month, however long I go again before posting, who knows -

Before she was Designing Women's Julia Sugarbaker, she was on Different Strokes, and had a ginger-haired TV son, Sam. Sam and Arnold got into all kinds of shenanigans, including getting kidnapped by a pedophile, talking to KITT and blowing up a movie set, meeting Mr. T. And around the same time, Sam appeared on an episode of Dukes of Hazzard, as a little kid who done lost his dog. Now, the fine folks over at Dukes of Hazzard apparently didn't think Sam's adorable southern twang was adorable enough so they DUBBED HIS VOICE with the person who did the voice for Cindy Lou Who in TV's The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. It was strange and mystifying.

These are the things I remember. Along with Webster BURNING DOWN MA'AM AND GEORGE'S APARTMENT and the creepy talking ventriloquist dummy in ALF. The 80s were kind of fucked up.

Gotta cheese it, folks, talk to you later.

Bandslash fic: The Hours Have Changed

The Hours Have Changed | R | 15,000+
Gabe/William, Demon!Gabe AU

He’s pretty, Gabe thinks. All Farrah Fawcett hair, high cheekbones and wide fucking eyes. An April showers Bambi with - he lets his eyes linger down the length of him - Christ on cracker, just about five miles of legs. Just like an angel, fucking over a kid who’s got all his sexy years spread out in front of him.

Warnings: Demons and angels AU and all the weirdness and religious themes that implies.

A/N: This entire thing is [livejournal.com profile] starflowers' fault. And also because I watch too much Supernatural and have an intense love for The Prophecy. Thanks very much to [livejournal.com profile] insunshine for the beta! Illustrations by the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] liquitexart.

IMPORTANT ANGEL INFO: courtesy of the internets, I don't really care if it's wrong.

Gadreel - fallen angel, some claim he was the snake that tempted Eve in Eden.
Rizoel - angel with power to thwart demons
Michael - yes, that's Mike Carden
Lahabiel - angel who protects against evil
