Guys, I have been hardcore stalking the greek cast twitters and they are all going to make me cry with how bummed they are not to be hanging out anymore. They had their wrap party last night, and I think they finished filming the finale Thursday? Anyways, they are all the worst at keeping secrets about casting spoilers so here is a collection of the twitpics I've found this week. Don't click if you want to be surprised by at least one come back.



how are they not airing it until JANUARY?? :( )

That's right, this week the first of a series of GREEK chapter novels has been released. The first novel, titled "Double Date" revolves around Casey's latest dilemma. Rusty has asked her to escort Dale as his date for an Honor Engineering banquet while she attempts to get over her recent break up with Cappie and find a "suitable" date for the All-Greek formal.

THIS SOUNDS SO AWFUL THAT I WANT IT IN MY ARMS ASAP. EVEN THE COVERART IS RIDICULOUS.

Also, I am not doing the three weeks of dreamwidth, but I am going to try to do three weeks of READING dreamwidth, because I so frequently forget it exists. If you don't have me added over there, it's the same name, same idiot comments. :D

LOL SPAMMING BUT GUYS I BARELY CARE ABOUT SPORTS AND AM THE WORST KIND OF OLYMPIC SLASHER WHERE I HAVEN'T ACTUALLY WATCHED THE OLYMPICS BUT I AM SO OBSESSED WITH THE GIRL BROS ON THE CANADIAN HOCKEY TEAM.



Via [livejournal.com profile] britbitribbit. I am mostly posting it so I can CLOSE THE TAB and stop staring at it. GD I LOVE DBAGS WITH CIGARS. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE WRITE ME PORN ABOUT THEM MOTORBOATING?????

Uhm. So I was totally right about the Greek exchange. The loveliest [livejournal.com profile] allthespoons wrote my fic, and let me link it again because I just lol'd thinking about it. We Got Spots.

I wrote First Comes Crime, Then Comes Marriage, a Casey/Katherine marriage of convenience fic for [livejournal.com profile] janet_carter. Hilariously I was writing for her as we both sat on [livejournal.com profile] giddygeek's kitchen floor.

The story I was writing then was not the one I ended up with though. I was trying to write an Ashleigh/Rebecca telepathy story, that barnacle had to call me about to break it to me how bad it was. LOLOLOLOL. Luckily she helped me pull through with something else at the last second, and Giddy was the best and betaed it for me.

Also I am hugely amused that I have never written a pairing twice so far. I have written Ashleigh/Rebecca, Casey/Ashleigh, Calvin/Evan, Evan/Rebecca, and Dale&Calvin, and of course, now Casey/Katherine. I actually kind of like it, despite how little anyone comments on AOOOOOOOO. What is up with that, I wonder? I do it myself, sometimes. I don't comment as much as I should when I get off livejournal sites. I think it's the lack of icon.

Speaking of Greek, wasn't it so tragic how ABCFam lost every scene that didn't have Rebecca in it? Gee golly gosh! more about last week's episode )

GOD NO ONE IS WATCHING LIFE UNEXPECTED AND IT'S PROBS GONNA END UP CANCELED AND I LOVE IT SO MUCH.

Seriously, I have not been this OTP-y about anyone on television since Seth and Ryan. I am such SUCH a sucker for the fucked up childhoods, and the us against the world, and NEEDING each other. You guys, Lux and Tasha are THE BEST.

picture from Monday's episode and reasons you should watch/ship it )

Ugh I love this show. Well, I love parts of it. It's still very WB-y which is to MY tastes, but you have to be the sort to love shows about high schoolers playing beer pong. Which I do.

ALSO. [livejournal.com profile] greekrow FINALLY posted the exchange fic stories on Sunday night! I know I'm late posting about it, but I want to talk about my story when it's no longer anon. After a LOT of heartache, I ended up kind of liking it!

But I will talk about that...whenever they get revealed. In the meantime, if you like ME and you like GREEK, you should read the story WRITTEN FOR ME. I know in exchanges, we're like, oh I hope this person likes it, but it's still a story written for the public. NOT THIS TIME. THIS IS FOR ME. IT HAS CRIMINAL MIND DISSES, FURRIES FOR DAYS, AND EVAN AND CALVIN AND DALE BEING GR8.

We Got Spots. Read it and LOL FOREVER. For the record, I guess [livejournal.com profile] allthespoons as the writer. There are only two or three other ones that I didn't beta/cheerlead/or have insider information about, so if I make any more guesses I'll give others away, I think. However, you should totally guess which one I wrote. No one guessed for yuletide because I think it was REAL OBVIOUS, but I'm curious about this exchange! I will write a drabble for the first one to guess correctly who is not Ash, Casey, Giddy, or Barnacle.
drunktuesdays: ([GRK] may i suggest a cappie-chino?)
In my continuing effort to be in every fandom possible in hopes that one of them sticks AND is active, I've been reading nonstop Holmes/Watson fic. I started with looking for just movieverse fic, but I definitely read MOST of what was available and started going into the delicious for the whole franchise.

Let me tell you, guys. HOLMES FIC IS WRITTEN IN EXACTLY THE STYLE OF THE BOOKS. I'm not saying that's bad, but you can't read a nice pwp before bed. No, it's all SPRAWLING VICTORIAN MYSTERIES WITH SEX SCENES THAT TAKES YOU A GOOD PARAGRAPH IN BEFORE YOU REALIZE THEY'RE EVEN DOING IT.

IE: Laughing--at first--I did my best. It was a challenge, as I had thought it might be, for even in these circumstances his compulsion to observe and to analyze threatened to overrule every other. After patiently putting up with his no doubt well-meant suggestions and directions, I was thus all the more gratified when his verbal commentary became more incoherent and disjointed, and finally disappeared altogether in a cacophony of inarticulate sounds that I had never heard him or any other human being make before, even from my hiding place outside that fateful window. Overcome, and more than a little frightened of what I had wrought, I sought his eyes again.

I have some weird tabs open right now.

I got my Greek Valentine's Day Exchange assignment and it is GREAT. I am going to do some plotting today!!!!!!

Hello my dears! I had a quite lovely weekend. I picked [livejournal.com profile] barnacling up from the airport on Thursday afternoon, had a TOTALLY FAIL-FREE RIDE HOME, took off my pajamas for the first time in a week, and waited for [livejournal.com profile] giddygeek and [livejournal.com profile] janet_carter to arrive so that we could take the train down to NYC to attend a swank bash hosted by [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o and [livejournal.com profile] fox1013. They were LOVELY hostesses, and I got to dance and party and sing with some of my favorite ladies in the land, including [livejournal.com profile] happy_coconut who I got to meet for the first time, and Hannah's lovely girlfriend [livejournal.com profile] thehoyden who I ADORE a little more EVERY TIME we meet and she proves again undeterred by my insane creepiness towards the two of them.

There is a picture Giddy has somewhere of Hannah singing, and me looking on with total hearteyes and I'm pretty sure it sums up the night. COME HERE FANGIRLS. LET ME PRETEND YOU CAN'T HEAR ME AS I EXPOUND UPON YOUR GREATNESS. But now they are gone, and my [livejournal.com profile] barnacling is on a plane going too far from me. :(

Yuletide reveals went live while I was away! The LOVELY [livejournal.com profile] fujiidom wrote my fun fun awesome A Very Greek Christmas fic, and Marksy wrote me a madness fic for Community that just tickled me pink right here. I am a lucky lucky lady.

I wrote Rebecca/Evan for [livejournal.com profile] allthespoons! I'm Gonna Tell It Like A Comeback Story, 2,134 words. I wrote for Casey last Christmas in a bandom gift exchange, and now I want to make it a tradition, because I am SO proud of both stories. I am such a giant cop out when it comes to writing porn, because I'm like FIVE or something, and writing for Casey makes me step outside my comfort zone in all the best ways. Yay, yuletide, yay Casey!!!

I also wrote a REALLY DUMB MADNESS FIC for [livejournal.com profile] iamtheenemy. I Won't Make the Same Mistakes, Ashleigh Gen featuring Cobra Starship's cobra. :D? :D? :DDDD?

Speaking of Greek, our beloved [livejournal.com profile] greekrow mods are doing a Valentine's Day Exchange modeled on yuletide. At least 1000 words, reveals after posting, hosted on AO3. Please sign up!!!!!!

I think that is all of my garbage for the week. I have two [livejournal.com profile] popoffacork tabs open, three yuletides, and a West Wing episode queued up, waiting for my descent into slobbishness. WHAT UP VACATION, LOVE YOU BEST.

PS: I AM CATCHING UP ON LIKE A WEEK OF POSTS, AND OTHER IGNORED TASKS. PRETEND ALL THE COMMENTS AND REPIES YOU MIGHT GET FROM ME TODAY ARE TIMELY

yuletide!

drunktuesdays: ([COM] can we go somewhere with less ball)
You guysssss! My yuletide gift is so cute!!

It's called A Very Greek Christmas and it is GREEK GEN. I am such a lamer because I LOVE GEN SO MUCH, but this is exactly the kind of gen I love the best where I am SLASHING THE CHARACTERS. LOL doing it so wrong. This is like the time Ash was writing me an Ashleigh/Rebecca story and I admitted I was slashing her Ashleigh&Casey.

Only better because it is all for me! Seriously guys, if you like Greek and ladies being great, you should probs read my fic.

Rebecca sauntered in further and peered at where the water was making crackling noises atop the back-left burner. "I saw you rereading that Betty Friedan book, yesterday. Don't lie."

Casey's mouth opened and closed a few times before she sneered and returned her attention to the list in front of her.

"What?"

"I just didn't know you knew who Betty Friedan even was."

"I can read."

"Also news," Casey sing-songed back and grinned at Rebecca's glare.

Ashleigh returned just as the kettle started to squeal and Casey started explaining just what the Very Greek Christmas Exchange would entail. It turned out to be a pretty blatant harbinger of doom.



UGH, IT IS GREAT AND IT IS RIGHT HERE

This is my first yuletide actually participating and I feel like it has been a large success! I wrote two stories (one to be revealed tomorrow I guess?), and I am pretty happy with their outcome!!! I see that everyone is playing a guessing game and I am SUPER CURIOUS to find out if my writing style is as distinctive as I think it is.

If you can guess my yuletide story and/or my treat, I will write you at least drabble! Comments are screened. :D :D :D :D

PS TO [livejournal.com profile] marksykins: THIS JUST DEFINITELY HIT MY GOOGLE ALERTS WITH THE HEADLINE "Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wentz: Dentist Duo" WHO WINS MORE THAN US?

drunktuesdays: ([HIMYM] hi-5)
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 )

Uh, I guess the bottom line of this entire letter is WAY TO GO YOU, I'M THE YULETIDE ASSIGNMENT EQUIVALENT OF A COMM CLASS AT A NO GRADES COLLEGE.
drunktuesdays: ([GRK] same impulsive drunks)
This is hands down the stupidest thing I've ever written. I don't know why you're friends with me.

So when I went to Boston to see Gaslight Anthem, I was still recovering from that flu and probs should not have been wandering in the cold rain as much as I was. I was trying to be as stealth about it as possible, but I started feeling real faint at the show, and went to the bathroom to sit down for a minute, and clear my head. My ipod touch fell out of my back pocket and I picked it up, put it on the tampon garbage container thing and GUESS WHO WAS SO OUT OF IT THAT WHEN THEY EVENTUALLY GOT IT TOGETHER, THEY FORGOT IT.


I was totes distraught for the rest of the night, but then I got an email the next day from a dude who's girlfriend found it, asking if I wanted to meet up and get it back. My face was pretty much a literal :D! but as I don't live in Boston, I asked him if I could send him some money via paypal to send it to me. I offered him a reward because SERIOUSLY WHO RETURNS IPODS??

And then I get the email back that says:

Hey Lea,

Not a problem. Just let me know where you'd like it sent and I'll get it out to you. And save the $25...just pay it forward :-)


DOESN'T THAT LIKE COMPLETELY REAFFIRM YOUR FAITH IN HUMANITY? I was certain he was lying and I was never going to seee it again, because clearly no one could be that great. But today I got home from the longest day of school ever, and there it was. My little scrooge heart is all warmed and shit.

BTW I wrote Beaver/Wade for [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o's hickey meme right here.

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.

FACT, THERE ARE TWO FICS ON THEIR COMM AND THEY'RE BOTH JEFF/IAN. I got so angry I had to take a walk. I COULDN'T EVEN REMEMBER WHO IAN WAS, THAT IS HOW LITTLE HE IS ON THAT SHOW. Goddamnit fandom. >:|

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

DYYYYYYYYING. I HOPE PICTURES TURN UP.
drunktuesdays: ([GEN] ))<>(()
I don't say this quite enough, but thank you guys. Thank you for being there and listening and being super even when I'm crazy and absent and stressed. I am seriously blessed.

Last night I was pretty much useless about the whole thing. Basically, for the last couple months my car has been deteriorating in a hilarious fashion. The radio quit lighting up, the door handle on the driver's side BROKE OFF IN MY HAND, he did that terrible throttle-y thing, the works. In the last month, Esteban added to his already crowded repertoire a tendency to stall out first thing in the morning, or if not stall, then hesitate for about ten seconds or so when I pressed the gas pedal.

Yesterday I started him and he cheerfully rolled up the driveway, rolled down my street, rolled down the hill, all while i was FRANTICALLY PUMPING THE GAS PEDAL, trying to get him to kick into gear. I luckily have my mechanic at the bottom of the main drag my street comes off of, so I rolled him into the shop, and had my mom bring me to work.

The verdict is that Esteban has a weak cylinder that is due to blow up any time now. That was definitely emphasized, the "any time now". Apparently, like any minute! I was told to baby him like no other, check my oil daily, and don't drive anywhere I don't have to.

Natch, I flipped my business, and just sat there staring at LJ all "I guess I am a pioneer woman now. I go nowhere I cannot walk to. Where is my roller skates?" just blasically black screened.

And then [livejournal.com profile] giddygeek started sending me craigslist links and then I remembered how you can get cars on the internet! That's where the owners sometimes live when they want to sell them!!

Anyways, my bff and I spent the entire day looking at cars and test driving things and arguing over whether I have the intelligence/coordination to drive standard (I don't) but the whole thing resulted in me falling for a lil Mitsubishi Mirage with a saucy interior and POWER WINDOWS.

Power windows, you guys! At one time in Esteban's life, his window was being held up by a pencil. You know how old people say, "I am tired of these fancy email/text messaging/computer gadgets, I just want a PHONE that makes PHONE CALLS!" Esteban was the equivalent of that phone. He went places, sometimes successfully. I am going to miss him dearly when I junk him.

However, if I do buy that minx of a Mirage, I will have all of the latest technological advances since 1955, and I am pretty excited about that.

All in all I am having a good day. Excellent (though still not fruitful) encounter with Hot Dunkin Donuts Guy, and I got asked out by a hot nineteen year old I only vaguely know, but said yes anyways.

My moods, yo! I must remember that there is a light to every fricken tunnel and cheddar goes splendidly with my whine.

I know Casey said no claiming on the Greek Challenge, but I am calling THE MOST DIBBIEST DIBS TO EVER DIB ON THIS ONE

SO I WAS LOOKING FOR PICTURES OF PETE IN DREADS FOR [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o AND I FOUND THIS LITTLE GEM THAT WAS COMPLETELY UNREMARKABLE TWO MONTHS AGO BUT NOW IS MY WALLPAPER ALSO I AM IN CLASS RIGHT NOW, SO THIS IS SEMI-AWK )
drunktuesdays: ([GRK] i can tell you about leif erickson)
lol posting more this week than I have in months, but I wanted to post this separately from the episode reaction. What would you guys think of me hosting a Greek fic meme? It'd be modeled on [livejournal.com profile] anon_lovefest except not anon, or at least, not necessarily anon. What I mean is that you guys could leave prompts and respond to prompts, and at the end of the week, I'd collect and post.

I know we got totally burnt out on them in bandom when there was that stretch of one EVERY DAY, but in the beginning it was super fun. ALSO IT WOULD END IN FIC.
drunktuesdays: ([GRK] same impulsive drunks)
YOU GUYS. So you know how in bandom, there's a number of people we stalk for canon, and they know we're there, and it's sometimes uncomfortable, but you get over it?

IN GREEK THAT PERSON IS [livejournal.com profile] cappiesdad who is uh...exactly who it sounds like? I maaaaaaaay have found his myspace, which has a goldmine of candids, if you don't mind occasionally going AHH, CAPPIE'S MOM. Which I don't. I did not upload any of those, except I think there are two that do have Cappie's dad in them because it was an awesome picture and he couldn't be cropped. I'm okay with it though. His screenname is Cappie's dad. He made Scott Michael Foster pose next to his PARKING SPOT.

here are the fruits of my labor )

If none of that is to your tastes, here is Evan's myspace in which he poses as a sad clown. Hello Evan!
