Um. I wrote kidfic

I hear: Why Should I Worry? // Billy Joel (from Oliver and Co.)

Title: Sugar and Spice
Pairing: Brendon/Spencer
Wordcount: 1142
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: I don’t own, I don’t know and I declare this 100% fictional.
Notes: I'm trying to learn how to write again. Since bigbang, everything I come up with wants to be looooooong. So I was looking at word of the day emails for inspiration and this was the result of “eldritch”. Yeah, I don’t really know how it resulted in kid!fic either. Warnings for pure sugar? Seriously, this is toothache-inducing stuff. I was feeling very fluffy, apparently. Beta’d by xbeax and nimmy - thank you both, kindly. All remaining mistakes are my own. If you see any, point them out!


And all things niceCollapse )

I feel: sore

So I recently re-downloaded GIMP (my pc died, I lost everything) and so I've been mucking about with it, trying to get used to it again. And here are the results of something I wanted to try.

I've never made a manip before, so for my first I don't think it turned too bad.

NINJA alertCollapse )

Request Ahoy

August 26th, 2009 (05:28 pm)
I feel: bored
I hear: You Can - David Archuleta

Guuuuyyyys. I want to write. I have a hundred other things to do, yes, but I wnt to write. And to be honest, I find it easiest to write when I should be doing something else. But right now, that is not so much the case, so I am here begging for prompts. Please?

Give me a prompt (and a fandom/character/pairing) – as detailed or as vague as you like. Anything from your pretty little head.

Or if you can’t think of anything, you can pick me a number between one and thirty, and I’ll write something for one of the corresponding prompts in one of 100_prompts’ smallest tables.

Or if you are so inclined you can choose a number between 1 and 1111, and I will write something inspired by the corresponding song on my (currently very empty) itunes. This will be an adventure, as most of it has been rather randomly found and a lot of it I don’t actually know that well yet.

If you are kind enough to give me a prompt, please remember to give me your desired fandom/character/pairing too. As much as I want to write, um, I do make no promises that it will be good. So, I’m sorry if you prompt me and it’s awful.

Fandoms: Currently, I really only write bandom. It’s been a million years, but I have written HP in the past, so would give that a go too. I’ve written Doctor Who, but only ever Ten and Rose era, and it’s been a fair while. I’ve never written, but would be willing to try Cookleta. I am a fan. Anything else is probably unlikely, but you can always ask :)

Prompt me, my lovelies.

Help me on my feet again

Happy birthday to me

I feel: ecstatic

This is it. My bigbang '09.

June 19th, 2009 (02:07 am)
I feel: indescribable

Title: Round and Round the Garden
Pairing(s): Ryan/Brendon, background Jon/Cassie
Word Count: 33,248
Rating/Warnings: PG. Warnings for unlikely happenings and Pete Wentz.
Disclaimer: I don’t own, I don’t know and I declare this 100% fictional.
Summary: Spencer Smith is in for a very enlightening, but boring summer when he switches places with his favourite childhood toy. For the little brown teddy bear called George, however, this summer is going to be an unforgettable adventure.

Notes: So this might be long. Um, this was my first go at big bang, and it was an adventure. I really didn't think I would be able to reach 20,000 words (the longest thing I'd written before this only being ~4300 words) and then I passed that many and I didn't think I would finish in time. But I did, and here it is. It was not an easy road, and not a road I travelled on my own.
Huge thanks go to my immeasurably fantastic beta, Aly (sinuous_curve), who must have got sick of saying "delete a comma" after just the first page of this story. Any remaining mistakes are most definitely my own - and if you spot any, tell me? A hamper of hugs go to Kate (the_piano_knows) for the constant cheerleading through emails from the other side of the globe, for never minding if the only reply she got was my latest wordcount and for pretending my premise wasn't completely insane. My thanks and my love to Ellie (moondarri) as always, because I wouldn't even be trying if it were not for her influence and general existence in my life.
Thank you to the hugely talented llamapi for the beautiful art, and to kaciagemini for a fantastic fanmix and for giving me a better understanding of the whole concept of a fanmix. Um. Now maybe you might like to read my story?

Isn't it nice to know that the lining is silver?

June 19th, 2009 (01:50 am)
I feel: touched
I hear: The Lining Is Silver - Relient K

Okay, so, I'm gonna be honest here. I'm not usually the person who will download a mix that goes along with a story, so having someone make a mix for my big bang was interesting and rather new. It was also completely amazing. kaciagemini's mix "No Teddy Bear Picnic" completely blew me away. The majority of the songs were completely new to me, and I was so impressed and well, surprised, by how well these songs fit the story. Which is, ridiculously well. I kind of want to dissect every song and tell you where it fits for me, and who it fits with, (and maybe I would, if it wasn't almost two am) but seriously, download the mix and it will tell you itself.

As someone who usually wouldn't bother, let me urge you to download this mix. It will make a difference. And I think it's greatly changed how I will react to fanmixes in the future.

No Teddy Bear Picnic: A FanmixCollapse )

Okay. So, hopefully you clicked. Now hopefully, you'll listen. It's amazing. So, yes. Thank you so much, kaciagemini, for making this fanmix for my big bang, and thank you for changing my view, and enriching my fandom experience.

Isn't it nice to know that we're golden?

You wanted arts and crafts

June 19th, 2009 (01:32 am)
I feel: grateful
I hear: Troublemaker - Weezer

I was so excited when someone claimed my story to do art for. So excited. And I don't think I could have got any luckier than llamapi. (Completely unrelated tangent - such an awesome username, am I right?)

Anyway. Art. For my story. My story. That I am still completely shocked that I ever managed to finish on time. Art! Absolutely Awesome Art. So, before I result to keyboard mashing to express the pure delight I feel every time I look at this, I give you the fanart for my bandom big bang.

Warning: Only click if you are ready to be jealous of some mad artistic skillz. With a Z.Collapse )

Thank you so much, llamapi. How about we show this fabulous artist some love in the comments?

How's this for arts and crafts?
