FIRST POST ON MY BRAND NEW COMPUTER! SHE IS SHINY AND BLUE AND HAS DRAGON DESIGNS AND HER NAME IS RIVKA. (I have already been laughed at three times for having a Jewish computer, and I don't care.)
I am still in the process of setting her up, but to everyone who reads this journal, I have a plea. I am going to visit my mother's (conservative, Republican) parents this week, and will be internetless for that time.
You know my fandoms - primarily McFly and HP, but I seem to have fallen into bandom, and I can probably be convinced to write Narnia, Ros&Guil, Good Omens, History Boys, or whatever else your twisted minds come up with. For those of you interested, I will also offer up my classical obsessions, so you can prompt me with mythological characters (e.g. Jason and Orpheus) or, you know, Alexander and Hephaistion, or whomever. Or whatever else you want to prompt me with, so long as I know who the characters are - I will not have internet to attempt research.
1. Give me a pairing (or just a fandom, if you want gen), and an actual prompt. The prompt itself can be a word, a phrase, or whatever, but it has to be an actual prompt, do not just give me a pairing. The more you give me, the more likely I am to write what you want.
2. I leave on Tuesday, and have to be at the airport early afternoon. I will try to check comments as late as possible, since this is sort of last minute, and the more prompts I have to focus on, the less likely I am to go insane, but please try to get any prompts in before noon EST on Tuesday, September 1.
Seriously, people, I will need something to do with my spare time while I'm there, and reading/writing fic seems to be the thing that keeps me sane in that house.
So, I posted the first half of the original Boots story the other day, and now I'm posting the re-vamped version, which is actually complete, even though it's about a sixth the length of what the original should have been, but... I don't know. I'm still posting it under WIP amnesty, because it goes with the other one. It's my journal, I can do what I like.
Title: These Boots Are Made for Walking (Take 2)
Pairing: Tom Fletcher/Dougie Poynter
Warnings: Slash, obviously. Cross-dressing, sort of.
Author's Notes: 546 words. This is what happened when I got fed up with my original story idea revolving around The Boots.
( These Boots Are Made for Walking (Take 2)Collapse )
I've gotten rather sick of some of these fics I have sitting around on my drive, giving me nasty looks for being unfinished, so I'm going to post these bits and pieces I have, as they are - unfinished and/or unedited - and say to hell with them. Some of them are things I really like, or used to really like, but have gotten bogged down with, others were never really meant to be written at all, I just had a scene or a moment in my head and had to put it down in writing. They're different pairings, and from different fandoms, and by posting these things I'm not saying I will never pick them up again, but I'm giving myself permission to let them go, so I don't have the pressure of needing to finish them if I don't want to or don't have the inspiration to. I still have WIPs coming out my ears, so this may not be the only time I do this.
So here's the first piece I am liberating. I liked the idea, but I never could get the second half of it to work, so here's the first part.
Title: These Boots Are Made for Walking
Pairing: Tom Fletcher/Dougie Poynter, Harry Judd/Danny Jones
Warnings: Slash, obviously. Cross-dressing, sort of. Incomplete.
Author's Notes: 1,561 words.

Title: I’ve Seen ‘em on the TV, the Movie Show (They Say the Times are Changing but I Just Don’t Know)
Summary: Bandslash. Same-sex marriage was legalized in Massachusetts on May 17, 2004, that summer, Fall Out Boy was on Warped. These are facts. I watched this interview and couldn't help myself.
Warning: Oneshot. Slash, of course. Marriage should come with warning labels, right?
Author's Notes: 1,503 words. This is what comes of my watching old youtube videos when I'm in a mood to write fluff. Thanks to murderofonerose for betaing.

Because I gave zen_fountain a prompt, and because I've had a lot of trouble writing lately, and hope this might jumpstart me:
The first five people who comment in this post get to request a drabble length fic (i.e., about 100 words [Don't expect me to actually follow that. It may well be longer]) of any pairing/character & one-word/short phrase prompt of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal.
If you're reading my journal, you probably know the fandoms I write in, or have written in, though you're always welcome to try something else, and I'll see what I can do.
Happy 4th of July to everyone celebrating! (And a special Happy Birthday to my sister, even though she will never see this. :D)
Title: You Can Only Say That What You Want Is Where You Are
Summary: The first time Tom wears his ring in public – not just ‘running out to the store’ public, but ‘red carpet, flashbulbs, and video cameras’ public – is almost a week after Dougie gives it to him.
Pairing: Dougie Poynter/Tom Fletcher
Warning: Oneshot. Slash.
Author's Notes: 1,568 words. Prequel of sorts to If You Feel A Little Lighter, which is actually sort of a sequel to something that's not finished yet. Basically, I wrote a couple paragraphs for figletofvenice ages ago, and it turned into something else completely, with a random cameo by Chris Pine. I don't even know.
( You Can Only Say That What You Want Is Where You AreCollapse )
This has been sitting around on my computer waiting to be posted, and as I've had a crazy and sort of scary past couple days, I figured posting part of my Nightmares Arc was strangely apt, though so far the only nightmares I've had have been while I'm awake. I'm not sure if that's better or worse than the while-sleeping kind, though I'd love to know what you all think. So, here, have some semi-angsty, semi-fluffy pre-Floynter. They have somehow become my safety blanket.
Title: Pull Me Out from Inside
Summary: “‘m all right,” Dougie tells his knees. “Just a bad dream.”
Pairing: Tom Fletcher/Dougie Poynter
Warning: Oneshot. Pre-slash.
Author's Notes: 1,617 words. Part of my Nightmares Arc (this one takes place before Show Me Something I Can Overcome. Thanks to figletofvenice for the read-through and suggestions.
( Pull Me Out from InsideCollapse )
Title: Utensil Joy
Summary: Bandslash. Utensil prompt - spork.
Warning: Drabble. Sort of implied slash, this is me, after all. Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump.
Author's Notes: God help me, I'm writing bandslash. Written because linzeestyle was talking about sporks in the midst of a Pete/Patrick discussion, and this is how my brain works.
( Part Dix-NeufCollapse )
I fail at remembering to post things. So. I wrote a bunch of prompt ficlets ages ago, and posted most of them, and somehow missed one, so that's here, as are the fanfic drabbles I did for that prompt meme a couple weeks ago.
For lambofcurl101th, who requested:
