Comment if you're interested in being added.

At this time, I am mostly friending people I already know in some way, as this is very much a personal journal; mentioning, in your comment, how you know me would help. I do not friend journals used solely for fandom content, with the exception of communities. If you're new to me, you can read this to learn more.

There's no real reason for this other than I don't feel like doing the things I'm supposed to be doing and there are a lot of crossovers the world needs that haven't been written yet, so here we go, yet another drabble meme dedicated to crossovers. Throw 'em at me, whatever you've got.
Post prompts. This means: fandoms, character(s) (and pairings, if any), a prompt of any fashion (lyrics, phrases, quotes, a single word, what have you.
2. Answer prompts. OR if you happen to have a crossover floating through your head already, just post it willy-nilly in the comments. With or without a prompt, give us fic. Use the subject line: fandoms, character(s)/pairings, title, rating.
3. If you see a prompt you like and someone has answered it already, don't be afraid to answer it again anyway! The more, the merrier.
4. Comment! Tell people if you like their work, it makes them happy.

Other than that:
♠ Here there may be spoilers, as that is how these things work, so read at your discretion.
♠ All manner of pairings and moresomes are welcome, as are ratings from G all the way on up and every fandom, from the obscure to the absurdly popular, whether movies, TV, books, comics or whatnot. Pretty much anything goes, kids.
♠ You don't have to write to prompt and you don't have to prompt to write.
♠ Also pimp the shit out of this. In conclusion, have fun and get writing.

[fanmix] Jeff/Britta: something like a drug

nicole_anell was kind enough to bid on my fanmix for help_japan and, in the midst of all the madness of moving, I finally managed to put this mix together to my satisfaction. I'm hoping very much you like it, too, Nicole, and that it suits the way you see Jeff and Britta. It's so much fun making a mix for these two; there's a more caustic edge than you get with most couples in fandom and it gives me a chance to use music I don't usually get to put in because everyone else is, for lack of a better word, sweeter.

Hands down, I"m too proud for love, but with eyes shut, it"s you I"m thinking of. But how we move from A to B, it can"t be up to me.Collapse )

Okay, so I'm at sixty icons right now (waiting for my paid account to run out in a few days so I can sync it up with the extra icons again, I hate when they run out at different times, eeeech), but I wanted to do this meme, which I haven't posted here since April 2009, SO:

In this post, talk with your icons and gifs and *only* your icons and gifs, either/or. Post early, post often, and respond to whomever you want. Just leave a dot or a dash in the comment field if LJ tells you you can't post a blank comment.

The more the merrier.

Technically it's the fifth, so here you go. Even though you have completely fucked up my sleeping schedule, Leshia, I guess you're still kind of okay. I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY. This fic did not actually turn out the way I thought it would, but I guess it turned out the way it had to, so hopefully it doesn't completely suck or something. Oh, and I made you a fanmix? Even though you did not ask, because I had this idea so. But not for Finn and Derek (I seriously thought about it but it was just too difficult and I'm lazyyyy), for Sean and Mere, except it is ALSO not what it was supposed to be, because I was like, "LOL I'll make one full of dumb teen love songs" — don't, do not, question that I possess the dubious ability to pull this off, I have a lot of Taylor Swift lined up for every variation on this theme — but then I just got lazy and used good* songs, I guess. Merry early Christmas.

Also I changed your tag for consistency.

Will we need someone to deliver our silver lining now?Collapse )

Title: Second Lover
Canon: Grey's Anatomy
Rating: PG-13
Summary: As far as he knows, going fishing with your ex-girlfriend’s would-be-boyfriend is a social situation without a rulebook. Finn Dandridge/Derek Shepherd, some Meredith/Derek and Meredith/Finn. 2353 words.
A/N: You can tell this is a serious fic because there is a title banner. It could only be more serious if there were an accompanying fanvid done entirely in black and white with grainy transitions and possibly some fanart of Derek as a cowboy. (P.S. No one in this story is a cowboy.) Leshia asked for this, so here you go, world, the fic you didn't know you were missing.

And wherever you go and whatever you do, there"s a man underground that will always love you.Collapse )
Okay, on Tumblr, Shane asked for my cast for The Hunger Games (and subsequent books) and I am only too glad to oblige. I think it's a bit rocky because it's not uniform, because some of these people are shockingly difficult to find pictures of, but I like the cast on the whole. Lina helped me with some of these, as well. I'm not sure who I'd actually cast for a movie, but in terms of looks, this is, give or take a couple approximations, who I saw when I was reading.

I resisted the urge to use quotes and descriptions and things, so as to keep this spoiler-free.

If we burn, you burn with us.Collapse )

this is a gift — it comes with a price

that ficathon I mentioned is still on-going, and while I've only written one story for it thus far (Giselle and Nancy from Enchanted, though, which is pretty cool, since I've never tried that before and it seems liked), I've found a bunch of great ones.

Magic's in the Make Up, Penny Lane, Almost Famous
Waegukin, Tina Cohen-Chang, Glee
fine as a bridesmaid, Gillian Owens, Practical Magic
Anna saves the world. a lot, Anna Wu, Chuck
I am the tin man, Sarah Walker, Chuck
equilibrated, Laura Dannon, Brick
cuidado, Anita, West Side Story
you need a flame before you fizzle out, Britta Perry, Community
I'm not saying we ever had the right to hold on, Meredith Grey and Izzie Stevens, Grey's Anatomy
got a sky full of stars (and nothing else), Amy Pond, Doctor Who
and so on and on and on, Daphne Blake, Scooby Doo
the dreams that dreamed awake, Amy Pond/Rory Williams, Doctor Who

There are, of course, plenty more, but those are the ones that a) caught my eye and b) I could still find in the fifty plus pages, so. There will be a masterlist later, though! In the meanwhile, I've got a few prompts open to try and a few prompts unfilled if you want to, oh, start with mine because you're all brilliant.

Prompts looking for a good home.Collapse )

Anyway, that is about all here, because I am pretty much not awake because I stayed up until the sun was long past up because I am a crazy person, but whatever, sometimes this is what you have to do. I REGRET NOTHING. Go play with stories, guys.

Jun. 8th, 2010

Okay, so I a) don't write that much fanfic anymore and b) generally don't pimp out memes other than your standard kudos/snaps cup thing when I need the flattery, BUT:


This is the greatest meme of all time. OF ALL TIME.

And I have like a thousand ideas to write after I've got a new adapter for my laptop (and after I've watched Glee probably, which, you know what that means, I should start with that Brittany/Troy vs Santana thing I was talking about). It's going to take me until then just to get used to this keyboard again, man. But anyway! You should participate, no matter how short or silly your fic is. Last time this rolled around, I seriously wrote Gossip Girl/Supernatural and it was so fun, so just... do something crazy. (Maybe I'll do Serena/Sam like I said I might back during Fandom Cage Match. Huh. Someone remind me of all the Grey's ones I said I'd do. And then write me some of the things I have suggested in the past that I cannot do, like Veronica Mars/early SPN or Meredith/what's his name from Early Edition or Grey's/NCIS:LA or Veronica as the Doctor's newest companion. Anything. It would make my crappy day bright.)

Also I just rewatched Glorious 39 for the first time since I saw it on the plane and oh man, prettiest ever.


Oh Foot Foot, I wish I could find you.

So, guys, I know I'm behind on this because this is some old music right here, but I suspect that a lot, if not most, of you also have no idea of what you're missing out on, because I only just came across this last night, thanks to the brilliance of Octopus Pie.

Yes, that's right. I've found it:

And Hanna's glee in having found it is an accurate representation of my face last night when, sitting in the dark, I discovered the sheer unmitigated joy that is the crappiest music ever made.

Are you ready for this? I don"t think you are. Get somewhere you won"t look insane when you cackle like a dying hyena.Collapse )

Feb. 10th, 2010

I'm home alone, answering the phones, again, so I should get to writing things and I will shortly, but in the meanwhile, I couldn't resist doing this. (ETA: Or this — anonymous love meme, go say nice things.)

Most of you probably haven't seen it, but zombres has put together this absolutely epic cast your own TV show picspam that wound up being three parts, a huge updating of the Greek gods, following what might happen if they were still around and kicking (mostly at each other) — all the drama and shenanigans of Olympus in the present day. Moreover, she's been writing these amazing fics for it over at i_sing_anyway. So, because I can, I said I would put together a mix for her.

It was supposed to be a general Lito mix — Lito being the name of the place where the gods now reside — but I'm kind of super into her portrayal of Aphrodite, so it shifted. Hope you like it, Angie!

in a love affair without a love songCollapse )
title: My Boy Builds Coffins
canon: Harper's Island
notes: Tracey asked for a fic about Henry and Abby. I had a couple ideas as to what that would mean, but this is the one that wanted most to be written. I meant to do the other Christmas-related stuff first, but I've been itching to do this. It's unbetaed and unedited, so forgive any mistakes. Also holy crap, this got long.

She doesn"t go back to the island.Collapse )

[fic] I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm

title: I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm
canon: Pushing Daisies
notes: For Angie, who requested "Ned/Chuck decorating the house for Christmas." I take back what I said about the last fic -- this is the fluffiest thing I've ever written. But that's kind of a natural part of PD fic, so enjoy.

The holiday season had never been especially kind to the Piemaker.Collapse )


title: Tidings of Comfort and Joy
canon: Uncanny X-Men
notes: Christmas at Muir Island, as requested by Nix (two spots still open! Two fics down, seven to go. I mostly meant these to be comment fic, but this one got a little too long for that). I'm not actually sure all these people were on Muir Island at the same time, but I seem to remember that being the case and my will is law; let us go forth and pretend this is canonically possible, because I'm not bothering to check.

Every year, it seems to Moira, the holidays get a little brighter, a little more chaotic, as ever more people find their way to Muir and call it home.Collapse )

Free-For-All Love Meme

Forget the Emmys, I'm giving all of you an award for Most Awesome. So I propose a kudos meme -- a free-for-all lovefest, because you guys are all ridiculously amazing and I know you know people I don't know who are ridiculously amazing, so let's get to covering each other in praise and affection.
1. Leave a comment with your name and a list of the characters you play and/or the places you keep your writing, wherever it is you do what you do.

2. Go around and tell people what you love about them: why you're glad they're in that game or you love having this character around or how awesome they are as a person, how great their icons are or how you especially loved this plot arc or that story just really got to you. Love something they didn't link? You don't play in the same game? Just want to tell them what a great person they are? Anything goes.

All I ask is that you PLAY NICE. If I see anyone being snippy or mean, I'm deleting the comment. Anonymous commenting is on, in case you're feeling a little shy. And if you know someone who deserves some attention but doesn't have a top-level? Add one. If there are doubles, I'll delete the newest one, so check and make sure one isn't already up. Just keep tagging in! There's no such thing as being late to this party.

Spread the word and spread the love. ♥

[picspam] Generation X

I can't stop doing mental casting of all the comics I read, so I threw together a mini-picspam for Generation X, mostly because there is a part of me that just really, really now wants to see a movie of this with Adrienne Frost as the main villain because she is batshit. You could totally do it and keep out all the bizarre trippy story arcs that way and it would be awesome. Or maybe I just want to see this Emma and Adrienne fight.

A day will come when Lina and I have managed to cast the entire Marvel universe between us.

I doubt we"ll run into any trouble in a quiet little college town like Snow Valley.Collapse )

Chuck at Comic Con 2009

It took a few days, but I got my act together and have finally made the Chuck panel picspam I promised. I got some great photos from the other panels, but I don't think I'm going to bother posting them like this this year. I'm just putting them on PCR's gallery, linked below. As for those of you who were there with me, I'm uploading the pictures I took of us as I write this. I'll give y'all the link when that's done.

If you haven't read my write up of the panel, you can find that on this SDCC tag or on PCR.

Don"t freak out.Collapse )

May. 25th, 2009

So I totally forgot it was a holiday and woke up really confused why everyone else was still sleeping. But now that I've remembered and because Jessie has suggested it, there is nothing that says Happy Memorial Day! like a GIF PARTY.

Memorial Day Gif Spam

Pimp it and go crazy, guys, go crazy.


Apr. 25th, 2009

Okay, so my 'net is slow already and I probably don't need more distractions, but I wanna play a game, adapted from a meme of Melly's.
In this post, talk with your icons and gifs and *only* your icons and gifs, either/or. Post early, post often, and respond to whomever you want. Just leave a dot or a dash in the comment field if LJ tells you you can't post a blank comment.

Mar. 7th, 2009

Hey, guys, so it's friends list trimming time. The goal was mainly to cut either journals that aren't in use anymore or comms I no longer want to be in, but I did cut a handful of currently-in-use LJs. You know the drill. This journal has always been focused on more personal matters, and though I did less of that for a while, I'm getting back in the habit, so it was time to cut out the more fandom/game-related journals. I want to stay in touch with everyone, so I mostly cut people with whom I'm already maintaining some other form of contact (Facebook, Twitter, etc).

Of course, as ever, if you'd rather not stick around here, too, it's always De-friending Amnesty Day here.

Jan. 4th, 2009

Today is lookslikelove's birthday, so in her honor and by her request, I've put together a casting picspam of the comic book Fables.

Set in the present day, it's another "what comes after happily ever after" story, one which reimagines the figures of all our favorite tales as refugees from the war which ravaged their various fairy tale homes, and who have now set up their own very small town, hidden somewhere in Manhattan. I don't think there are any spoilers here.

Once upon a time in a fictional land called New York City...Collapse )

Happy birthday, Lina!
