drunktuesdays: ([COMM] i will NEVER DIE)
Boy do I feel like I have so much to tell you about but I always forget everything as soon as I open Livejournal.

First things first, let me tell you a storyabout nailpolish )

Anywho, it is YULETIDE REVEALS which I was ESPECIALLY anxious for this year, because I wrote something that I feel simultaneously proud of and crazy nervous.

My recipient was [livejournal.com profile] ishie who I love and knew from her 30 Rock stories. We matched on Downton Abbey, which I was excited to try to write, and THEN I read her request and her first prompt was for Mary/Carlisle and I was like WHAT? Who would even SHIP THAT, he's clearly a gigantic feelings challenged asshole!!

But then I couldn't stop THINKING about it, and as I was talking it out with [livejournal.com profile] giddygeek I actually totally talked myself into it. What really got me going was Ishie specifically asking for "wounding each other and reluctant affection and bitterness and grudging admiration" and I was like, yes, I love ALL of that stuff as well, and really, Mary is sort of a gigantic feelings challenged asshole herself.

Once I started going, I didn't stop and I wrote 6K in basically a week. It's the longest thing I've ever written, and I think it's the best thing I've ever written as well. I knew it wasn't going to be as popular as Mary/Matthew stories are, but I was HUMONGOUS caught up on whether Ishie would like it, and she did! So it was a success for me!

So anyways, if you wanted to read it, it's called Take Care!

Then I watched the Christmas special and cut for spoilers )

My Yuletide gift was a Community story from Eli called Mercurial Adventures in Chemistry and it is GEN about my favorite group of dummies on television. Wicked pleased!

And now I am going to sit quietly and recover from the straight up punishment I delivered to my liver, and wash the lipstick stains off my rack. Happy New Year, guys!
drunktuesdays: ([GEN] ~*~*VONNIE*~*~)

Thank you so much for writing for me. I love stories, and as I say every year, writing for me is like taking a communications 101 class at a no grades college. I am easier than your mom.

I like MANY THINGS, but in particular, I like people being nice to each other. I like fond mocking, capers, dudes holding babies (their own or other peoples), people rising to challenges, figuring out their sexuality, high school, fairy tales, dumb jokes, arranged marriages, soulbonds, harlequins, slash, het, gen, etc and so on to infinity.

I dislike FEW THINGS, but they are main character death, trauma that doesn't get resolved, angst for the sake of angsting, UNRELENTING GRIMNESS, vampires, werewolves, magical genderswap (this does NOT include always-a-girl aus) abuse, h/c that has more hurt than comfort.


An Abundance of Katherines: I am prepared for the eventuality that I will be the only one to offer/request this book but in case you are interested, I have uploaded a mobi copy right here. I loved this book, and Colin and Hassan's roadtrip and their bickering and bantering. I still don't understand how that book didn't ended with the two of them deciding they were made for each other, but I would also appreciate any gen adventures with the two of them traveling around. I liked Lindsay and her attitude on life so please, no Lindsay bashing. As I said in my actual request, in order to write Colin, there is a bit of John Cusak hating of ex-girlfriends, but I would appreciate no gratuitous woman bashing.

HIP HOP RPF: Nobody wants Drake and Nicki Minaj to get married like I do. Drake himself comes close, but I want them to be married everywhere. I love them so much, and I would appreciate any stories about their relationship and Drake's inept way of wooing her. Nicki can turn him down forever if you want, but the fond affection of their friendship is my favorite, and I will cry rainbows if you wrote me a story about them

COMMUNITY: Yo, I totally had to include this to ensure I got matched. It doesn't mean I don't love this dumb show like my own child because I DO. I have written for it before, mostly Troy/Abed, but I'd read anything you wrote. Gen capers where the group commits to a terrible decision? In for it. Three characters trapped in a room and forced to have hilarious interactions? Do me on it. Two characters hooking up in silly and/or sexy ways? I'll slice it open and huddle inside it. I don't care anything about Jeff/Britta or Jeff/Annie but I do care about Annie and Britta in any other combination including Annie/Britta, and boy do I want Dean/Jeff songfic to Waking Up In Vegas.

I have an unfortunate habit of adjusting to small negative changes in my life, out of pure laziness, and then not noticing when those changes become larger and larger until all of a sudden I OPEN MY EYES and my life is INTOLERABLE.

Such as when my right mouse button stopped working TWO YEARS AGO and I learned all the windows shortcuts to avoid right clicking.

And then the battery would only really last an hour, then 45 minutes, then a half hour, and then I had to keep it plugged in all the time.

Then a screw came loose in the side of the screen and never went back in right, so the thing made noise when I closed it, and then more noise, and then it really just stopped closing all together. Then the thing the screw used to belong to BROKE.

Cut to [livejournal.com profile] kalpurna and [livejournal.com profile] giddygeek laughing hysterically when I carted out my laptop which the back cover dangles, the lcd is propped on one side by blank cd case, and which I had to run to plug in before I had wasted the 3 minutes of battery I was allotted.

...Uh, I bought myself a new laptop, guys. I think it was justified.


I wrote Automated Daydreaming [Troy/Abed] for [livejournal.com profile] gigantic, which, let me tell you friends, I was terrified of THAT assignment, because Ceej is the only person other than Hannah, Giddy, and I who I consider a Ph.D of Pete Wentz, and therefore worthy of much admiration and a good yuletide story.

So then I wrote that. I wish I had it in me to write longer stories, but I'm pretty happy with the way that came out. Yay dumb sitcom fics!!!!

I also wrote you are the song which is a VERY short FNL Tami/Coach treat fic for someone who prompted about their first thanksgiving. For writing it at work, and then making [livejournal.com profile] misspamela beta it immediately, I am happy with it.

But the fic that person got as their actual story is SO GOOD that I can't even deal. bright and clear is probably my favorite take on Eric and Tami's relationship. ♥

I also really liked the Modern Family fics this year. Particularly the ones about Alex coming out. OBVIOUSLY I loved Marks's (who mocked me for kudo-ing it without recognizing her) tapdancing in a minefield makes me want like FIFTEEN THOUSAND WORDS of Alex and Haley being mean/supportive of each other. UGH I LOVE SISTERS BC I DON'T HAVE ANY.

I also really liked dividing every question 'til the questions are complete despite the fact that it has SUPER WEIRD spacing issues that I just want to fix. It's pretty much everyone's reactions to Alex coming out, and I think my favorite is this.

When she tells grandpa (and she doesn’t want to, because this feels like a total over-share, but her uncles insisted she start now, or something), Claire has his elbow in a tight grip, and Mitch is muttering things like, “No jokes about k.d. lang. No asking if she’s going to cut off her hair. No-”

“Oh, geez,” her grandpa sighs, pulling her into a hug.

“I love you,” he says into her ear. “And if anyone tries to give you trouble, you just let me know.”


drunktuesdays: ([COMM] go somewhere with less balls)
Okay, I was not into Community RPF at all for some reason, but tonight they are CRACKING ME UP. Don Glover (Troy) and Gillian Jacobs (Britta) have traded accounts and are making dick jokes and cat jokes at each other's expense and I am dying.

I think my favorite is:

@MrDonaldGlover: Follow Wednesday: @joancbaez, @janefonda, and @nprbooks

@GillianJacobs: Follow Wednesday: @limpbizkit, @limpbizkit, @limpbizkit, @icarlynews

UGH DYING DYING DYING. DYING FOR DAYS. This is also amplified by the fact that Yvette Nicole Brown and Joel McHale are retweeting it and laughing themselves. I HOPE THEY ARE ALL ON SET RIGHT NOW. AND I HOPE DON AND GILLIAN SETTLE IT BY BONING. YEAH I SAID IT.

In other, FNL news I have become a Julie Taylor wife. In fact, I pretty much astrally wed the Taylors in their entirety, but recently Julie has become my Rory Gilmore tv person where I'm like DAMN GIRL, DON'T MAKE THAT DECISION. I BELIEVE IN YOU. I FEEL LIKE WE NEED TO GET COFFEE AND TALK ABOUT IT.

Dear [livejournal.com profile] yuletide author,

First of all, YAY. I am so amped that we have been matched, because I always have great luck when it comes to exchanges. I am SO EXCITED, as Yuletide is my favorite time of year, although this is only my second year actually participating. Here is last year's letter, and it is still mostly relevant. I am still the yuletide equivalent of a communications class at a no-grades college. Easy peasy.

Basically, I like stories where people are nice to each other. I like stories where people are figuring out their sexuality, or who are oblivious to things that they should already know about themselves. I like when people rise up to challenges, and prove to be good people despite shitty events. I like babies, and high school, fairy tales, movie aus, humor, teasing, formed families, slash, het, femslash, gen, RAINDROPS ON ROSES AND WHISKERS ON KITTENS. The whole cheesy ABC Family channel original movie cliched deal where everyone is happy at the end.

My dislike list is easy too: genderswap, death, abuse, h/c that has way more hurt than comfort, sad endings.

I'm such a loser, and I can't even be embarrassed about it.

SPECIFICALLY: Hellcats, Community, Parenthood )

Damn guys, my mom's cousin's daughter got married yesterday to the dude she has been dating for thirteen years. She's 26! That's ridiculous!

I honestly have nothing else I want to post about. Here is a meme!

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee.

Did I ever tell you guys I hate the word squee? I do. I got icons from [livejournal.com profile] marksykins!

icons )

PS I really hope [livejournal.com profile] ncc_gqmf is right about the Community finale, otherwise I'ma be annoyed.

Abed disappears every Thursday at 2:30. It wouldn't be weird except that Troy and Abed have Early Roman History on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and after class, Troy always turns to Abed and makes some awesome joke about the subject and Abed laughs and they go eat french fries. Except on Thursdays when Troy turns in his seat and Abed's already packed and halfway across the room to the doorway. It shouldn't be weird, but it is a little.

So I'm pretty sure everyone's aware that I get real happy when fic I want appears without any provocation from me to make it happen. GOOD fic, none the less.

Here are some community recs!

The Feel Good Movie Of The Summer Troy/Abed is pretty much shaping up to be my show otp in the literal meaning of the term, instead of the normal way I use it, which is I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT THIS PAIRING. Abed's voice is super tricky to get though, and this story has it without a doubt down PAT the entire time. Love love love.

And In The Streets You Run Afree Jeff/Annie, which I'm not gonna lie, I thought I would only like it if it stayed UST, but I was WRONG. Awesome.

Even Twinkies Expire Sometime, Or: The Repercussions of Random Kissing Jeff/Annie. I do not really want to talk about how hard I adore dollsome, or how many tags I have on her journal. The answer would be embarassing to me and to you. When she started writing Community, I pretty much clapped like a demented seal. No one writes comedic fic for sitcoms the way she does. Read it.

In other news, I have a to-do list I have accomplished nothing on, and a yuletide assignment that I am AMPED about. Yay this weekend!

Dear [livejournal.com profile] yuletide author,

What up! This is my first year doing yuletide, and I'm super excited. I've gotten excited about postings and reveals every year, but my involvement has been always limited to reading and enjoying everyone's suffering the last two weeks before the deadline!

But you should probably not suffer! If you are not already on my flist, then you should know that I am unspeakably easy when it comes to fic. There's not much that will keep me from enjoying a fic, especially since spending a year in bandom where my no list was "sad death". Note that happy death is totally fine.

In general, here are somethings that make me cross the line from enjoying to adoring: really dumb jokes, inept dudes holding babies (self-birthed or otherwise), fond mocking of main characters, parodies, fairytale aus, devirginizing, arranged marriages, obliviousness, sex against walls, girls being great, aliens made us do it, dreams, pretty much any premise that you go "no one is going to roll with this". I promise you, I will.

My dislike list is ridiculously short: Angst that doesn't get resolved. Vampire!fic. Magical genderswap (although I'm totally fine with always-a-girl). Character bashing that is serious, not hilarious. PRETTY MUCH THAT IS IT. I am not a real big BDSM girl, but I think that ties into not being a really big pwp girl? But I seriously am typing this and thinking of two stories that are exceptions to that statement. All of this is optional, seriously. I can't imagine disliking whatever you put out, unless everyone dies at the end. Then you will pay.

by fandom! greek, eastwick, the middleman, community )

drunktuesdays: ([GRK] we will always party hard)
This weekend was so incredibly boring and I gotta tell you, I kind of reveled in it. I can't remember the last time I stayed home for the entire weekend voluntarily. One of my bffs stopped by on Friday night with her baby and hung out for a bit, but honestly that was it. It was pretty great.

Today I had to go to a stupid work training. Every year, my gym throws these huge all-staff trainings that are idiotic trust games. Last year we threw FISH at each other. This year we settled in for something as equally dumb, but after fifteen minutes of speeches, they loaded us on busses and took us to the movies. \o/!!! I mean, we went to see All About Steve which was shitty, misogynistic crap, but I got PAID to sit and watch shitty misogynstic crap in the back row of my favorite theater, and shittalk all the other departments for not being as great as us. SWEET BUSINESS.

I'm in a weird place fannishly, where Greek really does not have enough fic to satisfy me, and I think we're all waiting for yuletide/the canon to close before really writing it, which is FINE, however I have nothing to do. I've been reading a lot of Robin/Barney and Due South and whatever I can find on a rec list. But last night, I went to go look for some Community fic, and got blindingly angry. Is anyone else watching this show? I've begun looking forward to it, even over the OFFICE on Thursday nights, and I went on expecting to settle in to some sweetass Troy/Abed or Annie/Troy or even Brita/Jeff.


Today I tried to insult [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o by comparing Pete/Mikey to Jack/Rose from Titanic, and the insult backfired and she started planning out a titanic au in the IM. If she weren't simultaneously watching Greek and updating me with her (strangely correct) opinions, she'd be fired

Speaking of Greek, I leave you with greekbeaver: home from gym, watchin football, soon off to Greek softball game then church afterward
