End-of-year fic meme. )

I HAVE WRITER'S BLOCK. I decided to attempt the drabble meme to see if it could kick me back into action, and it may have worked. I cheated though—I listened to each song a couple of times and totally edited them a little bit after. But shh! The important thing is that I wrote something, right??

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble related to each song that plays.
You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble
You start when the song starts, and stop when it's over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.

I chose The Kills for my fandom, which basically means Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince and everyone who is tangentially connected to them. There's actually a lot less Alison/Jamie here than you might expect, and that's because this was a really good opportunity to experiment with all kinds of other combinations.


Title: Drabble Meme #3
Author: likecharity
Pairing: Alison Mosshart/Jamie Hince, Alison Mosshart/Noel Fielding, Alison Mosshart/Jack White, Alison Mosshart/Kate Moss, Kate Moss/Noel Fielding/Russell Brand, Alison Mosshart/Kate Moss/Noel Fielding, everyone/everyone.
Rating: It varies, but let's go with NC-17 to be safe.
Warnings: Real person het and femslash, and hints of slash. A few have mentions of violence and rough sex, and a couple are slightly cracky, but I think that's it.
A/N: Well, er...these seemed less weird at the time.

You are probably aware that I'm not very good at drabbles. )

Reply to this post and I will pick five of your userpics for you to talk about in your journal.

[livejournal.com profile] corleones picked these for me:


dreamers; twins| the limbs of one seemed also to belong to the other (© [livejournal.com profile] yeahsoanyway)
The Dreamers is my favourite movie in the world, which is something you probably already knew about me. Isabelle and Theo's relationship is so fascinating and so I wanted an icon of them even though I don't really talk about the movie often. I kind of use it as my generic incest icon sometimes. The keywords are a quote from the book by Gilbert Adair, describing the scene the icon depicts.

More behind the cut! )

In other news, fffffffff it is my 21st birthday on Thursday. D: I do not like birthdays lately; getting older freaks me out. And everyone makes a big deal about 21sts, even though it basically means nothing here. Idk, idk, I can haz reassurance?

THIS IS AN ANNA POPPLEWELL APPRECIATION POST. (Mostly.)

She did a photoshoot for THAT magazine, which isn't actually out yet, but there are behind-the-scenes pictures from it which are gorgeous.



Original + more. )

In other news, I've been watching a ridiculous amount of TV. I'm watching Game of Thrones and The Borgias, and generally enjoying both. Game Of Thrones, I'm less sure about—some of it really disturbs me, and I know that's kind of the point, but I just feel kind of nervous and uncertain about it. But I do like it! It gets like +1000 points for the incest and the slash. I really like The Borgias a lot—shipping Cesare/Lucrezia, obviously, and generally enjoying François Arnaud's face, and also there was consensual whipping which I approve of. I find the Cesare/Michelotto relationship really interesting. And now I want to read A Song of Ice and Fire and lots of books about the Borgia family, but I still suck at reading lately.

I'm also watching Camelot which, um, is not so good. I don't know, maybe Arthurian legend shows just don't do it for me, but it's just kind of boring, and really at this point I'm only watching for Eva Green and her OVERALL AWESOMENESS, being all crazy and powerful. (Also maybe a little bit for Jamie Campbell Bower.) What else? Baffled by the Fringe season finale, and growing increasingly concerned about the state of House (and also suddenly shipping Chase/Thirteen, where did that come from??). Rewatching the first season of The O.C., because I kept seeing stuff on Tumblr and getting nostalgic. I got so much of my music taste from that show back in the day, it's amazing—at least twice an episode, I'll be like "hey, I like this song!...oh, this is where I first heard this song."

In the past week or so I've also been marathoning Community and Parks & Recreation and wondering why I didn't do that sooner. SO GOOD, YOU GUYS. I don't actually laugh out loud that often at TV shows, and it's not like I don't find them funny, but it's more like...I appreciate the clever writing and I'm amused, but I'm not actually cracking up, you know? But both of these shows have been making me laugh regularly. Especially the flu episode of Parks & Rec. My Dad actually came in and asked me what was wrong because I was laughing so hard. "I can't go home! I have to get ready for the Chamber of Secrets!" "...Commerce." SPEAKING OF WHICH: I love Ben Wyatt. Can we talk about Adam Scott and his delightful face?

Can we talk about any of this, actually? I've basically just been sitting here watching all this TV and not really talking about it.

AND FINALLY, a meme which could be fun maybe if anyone is interested:

Mini-DVD Meme: Pick any paragraph or any passage of between 500-600 words from any fanfic I've written and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet of what I was thinking when I made or wrote it, why I wrote it, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the fic, and anything else you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

My masterlist is here but I guess if you pick something I wrote ages ago I might not remember what I was thinking at the time. :/
hardparade: (narnia; skandar (pc))
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! )

Obligatory end-of-year meme behind 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.)

So with the approval/permission/support of the lovely [livejournal.com profile] suborbital, I have decided to start a...

NARNIA KINK MEME PART #3.
(anonymity optional!)


Both FPF and RPF are welcome. Het, slash, femslash - anything and everything. XD

Basically, this is how it works: you comment with something kinky you've always wanted to read in the Narnia fandom. Anything goes, this is not the time to be shy. Then, others will (hopefully) reply to your comment with fic. And you can fulfil other prompts, of course!

Let's celebrate Dawn Treader the right way. With kink? )

YOU KNOW WHAT'S GOOD FOR WRITERS' BLOCK?

THIS:

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble related to each song that plays.
You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble
You start when the song starts, and stop when it's over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.

Even when you're terrible at drabbles.

Title: Drabble Meme #2
Author: likecharity
Pairing: Ben/Georgie, Will/Skandar, Anna/Georgie, Ben/Anna, Skandar/Will P, and gen
Rating: It varies, but up to about PG-13
Warnings: Real person slash, het and femslash. D/s in one, voyeurism in one...vampirism in another?
A/N: Just an attempt to break my writers' block, using the fandom I'm most familiar with. :) I pretty much followed the rules apart from about a week's break in between the 8th and 9th drabbles, just because I got totally stumped. Also, each drabble has a link to download the song it was inspired by.

I sort of love being let loose on this fandom and all its possibilities. )
hardparade: (misc; never mind the buzzcocks)
Out of utter curiosity, if I was chained up in your attic/study/basement/library/secret lair, and I had to write you one story, what would you request? (demand?) Or alternatively, what's something you always hoped I'd write but know is never going to happen?

I feel like any answers to this are probably just going to make me feel guilty. BUT I STILL WANT TO KNOW.

In other news, the LJ Markov Random Text Generator is always fun, right?

Which is funny, because Alison used to be, delivering it up into Dean. And she only just turned FIFTEEN, fffffffff
(?!?!?!)

LJ thinks it's trying to feed him some wine or something but being all heroic.
(Omg I love it.)

Eventually, Will goes and shoves her head right down to it, brushed his cornsilk moustache against it
(Omg imagine Will with a moustache.)

she's in the morning is this warmth and closeness, the soft feeling of that montrous crest rumbling like a dog.
(I love all the fancy sentences that end with a totally bizarre similes. LIKE A DOG.)

(She spits; slaps him; makes him feel quite sleepy. "Er," says the man, taken aback. He drives on.

Will jerks awake at the end of 1999, so...that's interesting. )

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!

The Kills/The Dead Weather/Kate Moss/what even is this fandom. )

Narnia RPF. )

Skins, including RPF. (And, um, Skins RPF/Narnia RPF?) )

Kings of Leon (and Jared Followill/Demi Lovato) )

Woah, check out this mass of tags. Crazy business.

Some answers to that Character-Number Meme! Thank you, everyone who asked questions. I'm gonna shuffle up the numbers so you can ask more if you want. :D

Jenny Schecter (The L Word), Zooey Deschanel, Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl) & Joe Jonas are starting a band together, what is their name and what kind of music do they play? Also, who's the lead singer, and what instruments do the others play?
...That was sounding totally AWESOME until it got to Joe and then it just turned hilarious. But at least two of these people are musical? So Zooey and Joe can be like, joint lead singer, while also playing minimal guitar. And...well. I imagine Jenny and Blair would spend most of their time having catfights. Maybe Blair on keyboard, Jenny on drums? They'd play kickass girly electropop, but Zooey and Joe's voices would add this weird unexpected twist to it because Zooey's all folky and Joe's...a guy. Actually, this is starting to sound kind of awesome again. I have no idea what they'd be called. Zo, Joe, and the Temper Tantrums. Idek.

More under the cut. )

I can has questions for that character number meme? I've put some pretty random people in my list, and I can already tell that the results are going to be entertaining. But I need more questions. :( Make me write a drabble for a random pick of numbers or something, it'll be like a lucky dip.

Oh, this post is all about memes. Everyone is doing that icon meme and I like to copy people?

01. How do you feel right now?


Continued... )
hardparade: (celeb; treadaways)


Ha! Cool. I guess this shouldn't be weird to me seeing as I know they're in Clash of the Titans together (with Kaya too, yay!) but...it's still weird. Look how small Luke looks, Nick is a giant.

Also, this meme sounds like it might be hilarious, so I want to try it.

1) Make a list of fifteen eighteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment. (That way you're not leading the questions asked to fit the characters.)

2) Ask your flist to post questions in the comments.

For example:

"4, 6, 12 & 15 are starting a band together, what is their name and what kind of music do they play? Also, who's the lead singer, and what instruments do the others play?"

3) After your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the eighteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.
hardparade: (skins; effy (b&w))
Meme taken from a bunch of people!

Comment on this entry with a pairing I ship from one of my fandoms and I will tell you:

1. When I started shipping them
2. What I think their challenge is
3. What makes me happy about them
4. What makes me sad about them
5. What moment I wish had never happened
6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other
7. My happily ever after for them
 
If you need ideas you can check out my profile for a list of pairings. :D Also, if you do that, you might notice the random gap before my table starts. I tried to redesign my profile the other day and that gap just won't go away, it looks even stupider when there's a header there. (The gap is between the header and the table.) If anyone has any idea wtf is going on there, please let me know. My HTML seems fine, I just don't get it and I want it to look prettyyy. SADFACE.

Umm I feel like Formspringing(?) tonight, if anyone has questions! About me, about my fic, about anything. Questions! And once again, I think everyone who doesn't have a Formspring should get one. :P

My username is: [livejournal.com profile] likecharity from the song 'You Make Me Like Charity' by The Knife, one of my favourite bands. I picked it without thinking that much, and I'm not particularly happy with it, but I feel like renaming causes too much confusion to be worth it.

My journal name is: "instead of paying enough taxes", which is the following line from that song. You make me like charity/instead of paying enough taxes.

My title is: "i'm not trying to wake you up" from 'Pull A U' by The Kills. EVERYTHING IS LYRICS FOR ME.

My friends page is called: "it's just the sound of my heart' from the same song. You can barely hear that line, I only noticed it when I was watching a video of a live performance. It just really stood out to me.

My default icon is: I recently changed it from the one of Caleb with the guitar to Alison Mosshart being hot with a gun in the video for 'Treat Me Like Your Mother' by The Dead Weather. Which is awesome. The icon was made by [livejournal.com profile] terminologique.


I need some True Blood icons. Speaking of True Blood, I started downloading the S2 finale when I got up this morning and THE DOWNLOAD RANDOMLY FAILED AT THE LAST MINUTE. *shakes fist* I'm having to start all over again. I do not have enough patience for this.

House ones to come later. I might try and finish watching S5 before I do those, to make sure I'm making fully-informed decisions. Though narrowing my favourite House/Wilson moments down to FIVE is going to be a nightmare whatever I do. ;)

Top five pieces of personal canon for Demi and Selena. )

Top five Joe/Nick moments. )

Top five Kings of Leon pictures. )

Ask me my fannish Top Five [Whatevers]. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post.

I NEED TO DO THIS SO THAT I DON'T JUST IGNORE LJ ALL TOGETHER. It seems like we're gonna be moving house next week, so things are pretty chaotic and crazy and I've just been kind of OFF, lately. I'm so sorry, you guys. ♥

If you need a list of fandoms/pairings to ask me about, check my profile. :)

I'm still watching House pretty obsessively. I watched the end of S4 last night and was a sobbing mess for a while. MY GOD. I still haven't quite recovered. I cry at TV shows and films pretty often, but not usually quite that hard. It was incredibly powerful. And now I can read any fic that's pre-S5, in case anyone has any recs? :D
