Obligatory end-of-year meme time!

I feel like it's a good time for me to do that meme where you post snippets from unfinished fic that you have lying around. I have eleven, some are ones I'm currently working on, and some are completely stalled and/or ancient and I feel like they may as well be shared.

All Narnia RPF, not surprisingly! There's a whole bunch of pairings, and ratings vary but go up to NC-17. Anything else worth warning for is specified in the heading above the extract.

1. Skandar/Ben/Georgie – ha, this is literally all I have for this. There was a prompt on the kink meme about Skandar and Georgie teaming up together to seduce Ben, and…that was relevant to my interests.
"He's bisexual," Skandar snaps, "we both have a chance."

"He likes girls better," Georgie fires back.

"Legal girls, maybe," Skandar retorts, and Georgie pouts at him.

+10 under the cut! )

Also here, have a slightly creepy but strangely attractive picture of Ben, Skandar, and both of the Wills morphed into one face. (THEY MORPHED ANNA AND GEORGIE IN THE MOVIE, OKAY? I WAS CURIOUS.)

This post is partly a way of making up for not posting much fic lately.

It is also partly because it seems like I have to do that 'post snippets of every unfinished fic you have on your hard drive' meme at least once a year.

But mostly it's because I recently got a new laptop (my old one was falling apart—literally) and had to transfer all my files, and that led to me discovering a whole bunch of things I'd saved and totally forgotten about.

The ratings of these vary, but go up pretty high. And some of the ideas are kinda fucked up but you can figure that out from the pairing and avoid as you see fit—no other warnings necessary, I don't think!

I'm incredibly jetlagged and a bit of a mess mentally but I HAVE THE INTERNET BACK. *clings* To celebrate, and because I feel like I haven't posted a fic in forever, here's seventeen unfinished stories I have on my computer. Seventeen. You guys, that's ridiculous. Some of these I'll never finish, but hopefully I'll get some posted soon.

The ratings vary but go up pretty high, just a warning. And like...some of these ideas are really freakin' weird. Just another warning.

You know what's weirder, though? Being inspired by Rocky Raccoon to write Nick Jonas/Caleb Followill/Lily Aldridge (that'd be Caleb's girlfriend) COWBOY AU. Where Caleb is the sheriff and Nick is this handsome mysterious young man who just rides into town and takes Caleb's girl. And there are fights and alcohol and tough barmaid!Lily and repressed gay feelings and eventual threesomes. BISEXUAL COWBOYS!!!

...MY BRAIN IS BROKEN. I feel like in the near future, people are gonna be talking about me and say stuff like "Yeah, she used to be pretty sane and write decent fic, but then she discovered Kings of Leon and COMPLETELY LOST IT." I'm sorry, you guys.

But anyway.

Kings of Leon and Disney ('cause apparently those fandoms get grouped together in my mind these days). )

These are probably really easy, I fail at subtlety. I also fail at SHORTNESS, it took me like forever to do this 'cause I had to keep cutting them down. This is why I can't write drabbles.

ALSO. Go check out the Skins Anonymous Kink Meme, there are tons of prompts but not many have been filled yet. I've got a few in mind that I want to write but agh, I've got SO MANY things to write at the moment. I know there are requests you guys gave me ages ago that I still haven't filled and I'm so, so sorry for that. It just seems like I can't force anything right now and just have to write when I feel inspired. I REALLY HOPE THEY'LL GET DONE SOMEDAY THOUGH 'CAUSE THEY'RE AWESOME.

Aaand, I gave my masterlist a makeover if you wanna go check that out. :)

...I swear I had like fifty random things to update about and I was going to make like, a neat post of all of them, but I really can't think of the rest now. Damn.

Okay, so in this Narnia-cast-discovers-Twilight fic I'm writing, I've got Ben inviting Will and Skandar to the New Moon premiere, and I've just got to this bit where he introduces Will to RPattz at the afterparty, and suddenly a throught struck me.


Wtf, brain?

EDIT: UM OKAY WHAT. A BRIEF SEARCH INTO THE EARLY-2006 ARCHIVE OF [livejournal.com profile] narnia_rpf TELLS ME THAT I HAVE. Check this out. And there's more! That's so random! And strangely hot. Have they ever met before? I FEEL LIKE I'M GOING CRAZY.
hardparade: (Default)
Things that made me happy today:

- Talking to my sister, it'd been a while. ♥
- Starting to write a slightly cracky fic about Ben getting a part in Twilight.
- Starting to watch Merlin! Which I'm enjoying, although my lack of attraction to Colin Morgan puzzles me, seeing as he basically looks like a mixture between Harry Treadaway and Skandar Keynes, both of whom I find ridiculously good-looking.

+ =

Idk, it makes no sense. But I am only half way through the second episode, so, you know, we'll give it time. :D

First of all -- still obsessing over the Jonas Brothers. I downloaded their latest album and within about four days, went from being like "psh, this sucks" to liking about nine of the twelve songs. WHAT. I've been watching their Youtube videos too and being generally charmed by them, and, I don't know, it depresses me. But [livejournal.com profile] ohnojobros is an AWESOME community where comment threads often spontaneously turn into porn ficlets, and I'm starting to feel at home there. I'll probably be doing a JoBros picspam soon, not that anybody cares. XD

When you see this, post an excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

Four excerpts, all Narnia. )

ALSO, I have two unfinished Skandar/Anna/Ben fics. Two. HI, THAT IS CLEARLY INSANE. One was weird enough, and now I have two, and I can't decide which one to continue because they've both come to a sudden standstill, and is there even any point in carrying on with either, really, because once again, y'know, INSANE.

The first one I quite like the structure of and there's quite a bit of plot, and plenty of weird!Ben which makes me lol even though I wrote it. It involves voyeur!Skandar (and also drunk!Skandar, which is always fun) and there's a bit where Ben talks to hotel staff while only wearing a bedsheet. And I really like the way I've written the Ben/Anna, because it's not a ship that I like, but it's all pretty casual and Anna has him wrapped around her little finger which is how I totally see their non-existant relationship.

The second one was when I decided to ditch the plot. It's a lot more angsty and smutty and Ben and Skandar have this hot rivalry thing going on.

I'm totally stuck now though because I like what I've got of both, but I can't combine them, like...at all. And I really don't know where I'm going with either. The first one would be a LOT harder to try and finish because it is SO HARD to go from plot and humour to porn. Without making the porn funny too, and I don't really want to do that. The second one I could probably finish, actually, if I just put in a bit more effort, but idk whether anything should happen between Ben and Skandar, and I stopped writing in the middle of the smut and that's always hard to get back to.

Download this song, it is pretty much the only thing getting me through writing this smut scene right now.

It's 'Phenomena' by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and it is SO. HOT.

I...am writing Anna/Georgie.

I don't really have anything to say to defend myself. I was writing my Will/Skandar/Anna, and it was all happy and fluffy and I was really enjoying myself, and now all of a sudden I'm writing some kind of really angsty femslash future!fic.

I'm just gonna wait and see where this goes.

I swear to god, gin makes me write better.

Okay, maybe not better, but it frees me up somehow, and makes the words flow way easier, and I usually end up happier with the result.

And I mean, it's not just any alcohol. I was drinking gin when I wrote the first part of The Night Starts Here (the Will/Skandar/Anna fic) and that went so easily for me, and I was just really happy because it was something I'd been struggling with.

And here I am drinking gin and coke and getting on so well with my Petrellicest fic!!

Which is funny, because Liz (my Dad's girlfriend) buys gin every few months, but always complains about it and says it makes her really, like, upset and angry. But it makes me feel ~creative~.

Also Broken Social Scene! I think music makes a big difference. I can pretty much only listen to music without words, or music with hardly any words, when I'm reading/writing, for obvious reasons. And I think Broken Social Scene is the best music to write to.

...I'll just clarify that I'm not actually drunk. The fic probably wouldn't make a lot of sense if I was. Let's hope it does make sense, anyway.


I'm going to get back to this fic now. XD
hardparade: (Default)
2,560 words of Petrellicest! *dances*

That is all.

Oh wait, no it's not! [livejournal.com profile] shoebox_project updated! SHOEBOX. I know that was yesterday, but I still can't get over the excitement of it -- it's been so long. I can't even express my love for Shoebox anymore, I just end up all incoherent with joy. ♥

I'm not sure if this is a stupid question, but is there a sort of generally-accepted pseudo-canon for Nathan's past? Like when he joined the navy, when he started work, when he met Heidi, etc. Do we even know how long he's been with Heidi? Gah.

I'm sure I'm just going to be told that people just make it up, haha, and I know I probably should come up with my own idea of these things and just stick with it, but it's the kind of thing I always get nervous about when writing past-fic. I know there is no specific canon, but if anyone has their own really fixed idea of when things happened it would really help me out. :( I don't know why, I just really struggle with that kind of thing.
hardparade: (Default)
I'm kind of starting to panic about my inability to write Petrellicest. :(

The thing is, I'm sure that just by saying that -- and thinking it all the time -- I'm like, reinforcing the idea, which can't be good. It's probably just that I've built it up so much and put a lot of pressure on myself...I love the ship so much that I want whatever I write to be perfect, so it's like I'm intimidating myself. Or something.

I have been trying, pretty regularly for the past few weeks, but every time I start I just end up not liking whatever I've written, and scrapping it, and then getting worried that I'll never be able to write anything.

For one thing I think I need a more specific idea, because my ideas are allll over the place.

And then I need to relax and take some time and just try stuff out until it works, instead of freaking out if I write something I'm not happy with. I don't think I've ever had this problem before. Well, I have, but only with specific fics, not a pairing in general.

Also, I think it's interesting that Heroes is the first fandom I've ever even considered reading genfic for. I've read quite a bit and really enjoyed it, and I think that's pretty cool, because most of the time the idea of genfic bores me. But Heroes has created such an interesting, you know, universe, that fic doesn't need to be pairing-oriented for it to be good. Or for me to want to read it, anyway, apparently, haha.

My other news (lolol was that stuff really 'news'??) is that I've started learning Italian! I was saying before how I wanted something to do with all my free time now that I've left school, and I've always been really interested in languages. I learnt German (very badly, because the teaching was crap) and French (for about five months) at school. It was seeing [livejournal.com profile] eryslash's, [livejournal.com profile] kimmy_dreamer's and [livejournal.com profile] fiorediloto's occasional Italian posts that got me interested, I think, just because the language looks so pretty. :)

So I've bought some books and CDs and stuff, and my Dad's apartment now looks like a high school Italian classroom, seriously, everything is labelled in Italian with the pronunciation written underneath. XD I'm still really just beginning. My sister's been learning Spanish for a few years and she started that by teaching herself, so she's been really helpful. :)

Aaaanyway. Back to trying desperately to write some Petrellicest. *sigh*

I think I've worked out what the problem with writing RPS is. Or at least, the problem I have.

It's that I always try really hard to get my facts straight. And that't relatively easy when you're writing in a fiction fandom, because you can go check out the book/show/film to make sure of something. The canon is all quite neatly compressed.

But when it's RPS, the canon (lol, it seems weird calling it canon, it's more like, real life) is ALL OVER THE PLACE. It's like, bits of it are mentioned in interviews, bits of it are just things that everyone knows, and bits of it are things that you feel might be true, but can't find any proof for, and you only think you might've read it in some article once.

It's nowhere near as easy to check your facts. There are a few things you can do, like check the person's Wiki page or whatever, but that's only if you need to know a very basic thing, like where they were born or how old they are or what year it was when they went on some TV show. If it's recent news, that they might have just happened to mention in an interview...things can get quite difficult.

Maybe I just stress out about it too much and I don't actually NEED to have everything correct. After all, it's still fanfiction. But for some reason it bothers me if I think something's wrong.

For instance, at the moment, I'm thinking about two RPS fics that I want to write, and I keep getting held up by little details. Like, did Chris Corner and Noel Fielding BOTH go on tour with Robots In Disguise ever? And if so, when was it? And I know that the Robots used to DJ in London, and so did Noel, but do they still? Sue and Chris live in Berlin now, so when did they move? Etc etc etc.

And there isn't really a way of me finding out. I guess I just don't want someone to read it and be brought out of the story because they're going "But that never happened! There was never a time when the four of them were DJing in London, therefore, this story never could have happened, and now I can't properly imagine it, and it is ruined for me!" I just like people to be able to imagine that something really could have happened.

Maybe I should just stop worrying about it. :/

Guys, I'm writing Kaiser Chiefs fic.

Why does this happen? I've got like a billion other fics on the go, ones that I've been writing for...ever, and here I am writing KAISER CHIEFS FIC.

Damn you, Ricky Wilson, for being on that repeat of Never Mind The Buzzcocks last night, and inspiring this. I HAVE OTHER THINGS TO DO.
hardparade: (Default)
OK, I don't know if any of you know who Noel Fielding and Simon Amstell are, but Noel's being a guest team captain on Simon's pop quiz panel show Never Mind The Buzzcocks" at the moment, and for the past few days I've been really wanting to slash them.

The thing is, I cannot for the life of me work out who would top. This probably sounds ridiculous.

In all the slash I've read with Noel in, he's been a bottom, which I totally agree with and can imagine perfectly. But Simon! Is totally a bottom as well.

SO. Even if you have no clue who these guys are, I would like you to watch the following clip on Youtube and offer me your opinion. I know it will be difficult, because you'll only be seeing a brief conversation between the two, but...please. I'm so stuck.

Oh, and also, the clip features a rather controversial joke of Simon's about Courtney Love. Personally, I found it hilarious, but loads of people were really shocked. (Including Noel, as you'll see, but that's fair enough seeing as he's actually friends with her.)



Noel is the black-haired one, Simon is the curly-haired one. It's only 46 seconds long! Please have a go.

Agh, I am slightly worryingly obsessed with Noel Fielding at the moment though. He's everywhere, lately, because he and Julian Barratt are promoting the new series of their surreal comedy show The Mighty Boosh. And *sigh* I'm just in love with him.

Here is a small picspam just because I can't help myself. )

Phew. OK. I'll go away now. My brain has been a crazy place these past few days. All this Noel everywhere, and my best friend just got two adorable tiny little kittens so I've been round there all the time playing with them, so my mind is just like, NOEL FIELDING! KITTENS! NOEL FIELDING! KITTENS! and I can't get it to shut up.
