hardparade: (heroes; adrian & milo)

This is basically a sorry-for-disappearing post. :/ I've really just been so busy with studying and talking to my amazing new boyfriend (♥). BUT I will devote this weekend to getting SOME kind of fic-writing done, because srsly I'm suffering withdrawals or something, it feels like SO long since I've written anything.

While I've been gone, I've sort of been dipping my toes into a couple of new fandoms. But reluctantly, because they're kinda embarrassing. Right, well, you know how I love Drake & Josh? I think the natural progression for Drake & Josh viewers is for them to end up watching iCarly. Which...has happened to me. And somehow I'm kind of hooked on it now. And I really want to write some Carly/Sam, because Sam is a total dyke, okay.

Strangely, the other fandom is, well, Disney, I guess. I've had a sort of vague interest in the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus and everybody just from ONTD and some people on my flist, but I always kind of stood back from it and didn't get involved. I was interested though, like, enough to find Miley incredibly irritating, Nick really hot, and the idea of Jonascest very appealing.

So anyway I was bored the other night and ended up skimming a few communities, and now I ship Joe/Nick (this video pretty much convinced me) and possibly Miley/Selena, and I feel so ashamed because I never thought this would happen. :( I remember when I first saw an advert for the Jonas Brothers' album or whatever and I was all "QUIT TRYING TO BE HANSON!" and now, idk, they've sucked me in. I CAN'T HELP IT.

Yeah. So I might end up writing some of that, but maybe not, because I'm not really a FAN and I doubt I know enough about them all, etc etc. But we'll see. Knowing me, I'll attempt to finish off one of the Narnia fics I've got half-written, and then end up getting sidetracked writing a Nick/Miley/Selena threesome or something. *sigh*


I finally caught up on Heroes. Sort of. Spoilers up to 3x03. )

I tried to keep up the food theme, and totally failed. Oh well.

Title: exploding international
Author: likecharity
Pairing: Adrian Pasdar/Milo Ventimiglia (some Milo Ventimiglia/Hayden Panettiere)
Rating: PG
Warnings: Real person slash
Summary: He isn't jealous, he tells himself. That would be ridiculous.
A/N: Title from The New Pornographers - All For Swinging You Around. Just some fluff for [livejournal.com profile] eryslash. :) Haha, I think all of my Heroes fic so far has been dedicated to [livejournal.com profile] eryslash in some way, but this one deserves it especially, for her amazing Adrian/Milo quote-vid-picspam which you can check out here.

It starts in Munich, with chocolates. )

Title: (you come in) burned
Author: likecharity
Pairing: Nathan/Peter
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Incest, underage sex (Peter is sixteen)
Summary: He's let it in, now. He's opened the box, he's started the fire. And no matter what he does, he knows he's never going to be able to shut it out again. Nathan and Peter, and their beginning.
A/N: Title from The Dandy Warhols. I must have worked on this for weeks. Partly because it is so long, and partly because it drove me insane. I'm so glad it's finally finished. This is my how-things-got-started fic for the Petrellis, and I dedicate it to [livejournal.com profile] eryslash, [livejournal.com profile] kimmy_dreamer and [livejournal.com profile] fiorediloto, for not letting me give up. ♥

It's Christmas Eve, and Peter stands in Nathan's doorway with his hands shaking. )

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.

*clings to fic and crosses fingers*

It will get finished, it will get finished, it will get finished...

I also have an Italian-related question! My book says that 'e Lei?' means 'and you?'...like if someone asked 'how are you?' and you wanted to say 'I'm good, and you?'. But that's formal, right? What's the non-formal 'you' in that context? It doesn't say. :( Help me, Italians! XD

...I probably shouldn't be tackling fic-writing and Italian-learning at the same sort of time.

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*

Okay, first of all, I am probably a little too amused by the fact that my spellcheck's first suggestion, when it tells me 'Skandar' isn't a real word, is 'Sandra'. But srsly, ahahahaha.


I finally finished all the episodes. All the episodes! I can't quite get over it. I was kind of looking forward to that moment because it meant I could FINALLY explore the fandom. Because so far I've been either just not doing it at all, or tentatively clicking around on communities and shielding my eyes half the time. And I can't get used to it, I still keep checking if things say they have spoilers, and then I'm like, wtf, no, I've seen everything, I can't be spoiled anymore.

I seriously spent most of yesterday exploring the fandom, and it was amazing. I love that moment, you know, when you first get into a new fandom and you just spend ages reading loads of fic and looking at loads of stuff because it's all new. And I've still got a ton of stuff to look at. I'm just savouring it all, hahaha.

Just in case anyone actually hasn't seen all the episodes but is planning to. Spoilers for the second season. )

Title: this is why
Author: likecharity
Pairing: Nathan/Peter/Claire
Rating: Hard R (very hard R!!)
Warnings: Incest (brother/brother, uncle/niece, and a bit of father/daughter), and Claire is sixteen!
Summary: Later in their lives, they will be lying in bed, Claire between them, and the ambiguity will make it difficult when she asks them, stuttering and shy, to explain to her their story.
A/N: Set sometime after Claire starts staying at the Petrelli mansion in S1, but the timeline of it really doesn't fit in with canon, so I just gave up with that. This is for you, [livejournal.com profile] eryslash, I hope it cheers you up a bit. :)

It starts, of course, with Nathan and Peter. )

I think the answer to that question is 'because I'm lazy'. I have told my Heroes-watching friends that I should probably try watching it, several times, but it took me until yesterday to actually get a move on and start downloading some episodes.

Actually, it was because I had a dream the other night where I was in Rome with [livejournal.com profile] eryslash (haha!) and we were in this pink-painted room with a shower in it, randomly, and she told me I really, really had to start watching Heroes because she knew I would like it, and that I would really love Petrellicest, and she said I had to go home right away and find some download links. XD

Anyway, OMG.

I'm only five episodes in, but I have basically been downloading/watching since last night, it's just that my connection sucks and the downloading is going FAR TOO SLOWLY. And I am so impatient.

This show is like...the most awesome show I have seen in a very long time. I seriously kept getting shivers whilst watching the first two episodes, especially all the bits with Isaac and his paintings and how they matched up to ~the future~, I don't know why it was those bits that got me particularly, it was just so spooky and awesome.

And Nathan and Peter are totally my favourites although I really hope Nathan stops being such an ass sometime soon. :/ But Peter and his hair and the way he's always pushing it out of his eyes, and his crooked bottom lip and his mouth in general, guh. He actually really looks like a slightly more attractive version of my English Lit teacher, which is cool.

And I am on board with the Petrellicest already, Ery, because? "It's biological. I can't help it. We're connected." ♥ ♥ SQUEE. And they touch all the time. There is just so much touching.

The problem is, I am like the most squeamish person in the entire universe, and there were some scenes that I was just not prepared for. I managed to not watch the hand-in-the-garbage-disposal scene, because I saw that coming, but there were a bunch of other bits that I just nearly threw up at. (AUTOPSY SCENE OMFG.) I've gotten quite good at shrieking and covering the screen though, so I'll cope. IT'S WORTH IT.

Aaaaanyway, the really frustrating thing is that I can't even venture into the fandom and explore yet, because I'm too scared of spoilers. I mean, I'm only five episodes in. BUT IT'S SO TEMPTING. I want Petrellicest fic. :( I don't want to have to wait until I've seen alllll the episodes, especially because, at the rate they're downloading, it will take me months.


In other news, I have been chewing gum pretty much constantly all day. When I stop, I start biting at the skin around my nails. I may be developing a bit of an oral fixation. :/
