we can roll around in your dirty old magic  
Today has been a day, my surgery has been moved, all of the things failed to become accomplished, and I owe so very many comment and email answers. I will get to those, I swear! Cross my heart! But right now it's 1:42, and I've got a dentist appointment about 40 minutes away at 8 in the morning. So, I LOVE YOU, I WILL GET THERE, I SWEAR IT.

In the meantime, though, a few things I couldn't help but share:

1) Remix time is fast approaching, as it tends to do, and discussion of fandoms to add/remove is going on here. Just ftr though, Inception and H5-0 will both be added this year. I AM SO EXCITED. And need to hurry and get some fic written so I qualify in H5-0. But come over and join the discussion! See what'll it take for us to entice you all to come play with us this year! :DD

2) [ profile] harlequincepted's new theme is up! We're going with kid!fic this round, which covers everything from baby-on-the-doorstep to Eames-is-suddenly-six. CANNOT WAIT to see what turns up in this. ♥

3) So there's this band you may have heard me mention once or twice. Empires? Tiny band I've done stupid things to see. Would do stupid things to see again. Yeah, yeah, you've seen the flail. These dudes are fantastic in at least a billion ways, and they are unsigned, and here is your chance to help them get some recognition they absolutely deserve by voting for them to be on the cover of Rolling Stone. Do it, do it, DO IT FOR ME, OKAY, IF NOT FOR THEM.

4) Seriously THANK YOU to all the people who told me about that thing on H5-0 tonight. Ahahaha. I will be updating the pimping post regularly to keep up with that thing. Probably not everything else, because, uh, not sure if you've noticed this but: STEVE AND DANNY ARE MARRIED. I'd try and show you every moment that proves it, but that's pretty much every minute they are on screen together. Also, because it really must be said, OH MY GOD TONIGHT'S EPISODE. OH MY GOD THEM. I love them so much.

5) EVERYONE SHOULD GO LOOK AT [ profile] aredblush's SUPER AWESOME FANTASTIC Valentine's Day card. Bandom and Inception and HAWAII FIVE-OH, OH MY. Honestly, I think she can't be more amazing, and she draws a Steve/Danny ninja Spider-man kiss. DYING from how much I adore it. DYING.

things! and other things!  
So, I've pretty much decided to go ahead and hit Chicago this weekend. I mentioned it to my mother and her response was "well, it will be your last chance for a while." CURSE YOU, ADULTHOOD. >:(

But the important part of that story is EMPIRES. EMPIRES FOR ME THIS WEEKEND. :DDDD

Also, it has come to my attention--and to absolutely no one's surprise--that there is, in fact, not a single fake boyfriend fic that I don't want like burning. ♥___♥

Also, also, I am attempting to cut back on Diet Dr. Pepper and it HURTS MY HEAD SO MUCH. DDDDD:

Also, also, also, I have had Firecracker by Katy Perry stuck in my head since I woke up. >:(

Also, also, also, also: THIS HAPPENED. :DDDDDD

You guys, you guys, I know you've all seen this already, but [ profile] harlequincepted!! GO! JOIN! WRITE ME FAKE BOYFRIEND FIC. :DDDD This is gonna be glorious. You know you want in.

Seriously though, the list of my bulletproof kinks pretty much goes like this:

  1. Fake boyfriends!
  2. Banter
  3. Accidentally married
  4. Pining

This is gonna be the best, I can tell already. ♥______♥

Now the question becomes: WHO IS GONNA WRITE ME THE CAN'T BUY ME LOVE AU?

I finally managed to write something for the cuddling meme! But I Still Think That We're In Love. Arthur/Eames and a typical morning. Um. It is ridiculous. But cuddling.

Title totally stolen from, uh, IDK, I was listening to Darren Criss at the time and really just wanted to go to bed. But this is a totally important point, okay: Darren Criss is too awesome for words. I'm blind from the heart eyes!

I was going to try a little Puck/Kurt thing next, but IDK, you guys. I have the hardest time with Glee fic. WHY IS IT SO HARD?

things! + fic - the same old story - killjoys verse - gen  
1) Last Monday, I told [ profile] aredblush that obviously the only way to really celebrate Danger Days coming out was with, will art. (Art is the weapon!) And she drew me killjoys! So amazing, guys! So amazing!

2) In exchange, she asked for the killjoys from the girl's POV. So this happened:

The Same Old Story - Killjoys - gen - 405 words
Girl you got to be what tomorrow needs )

3) A few days ago [ profile] gyzym and I were talking about an Oregon Trail AU, because we crack ourselves up. And because Inception is possible! [ profile] aredblush just DREW IT AND IT IS GLORIOUS AND YOU SHOULD ALL GO LOOK AND ADOOORE HER BASICALLY, OKAY

4) UM TO THE AWESOME PERSON WHO HAS BEEN STUCK WITH ME FOR YULETIDE: I fail at letters, so, so, let me just say, I enjoy happy things, banter, pining, banter, seeing how two people are with each other, banter, friendship, banter, cuddling, banter, and even ridiculous AUs. You should feel no obligation to follow my optional details, and write something you like. I'm sure it will be fantastic. Happy writing, and thank you so much!

5) Speaking of cuddling, a poll!

leave the wreckage of your sins  
Oh god, guys, I am so far behind on answering comments and emails and doing, you know, everything. It's been a ridiculously busy weekend so far, and I'm supposed to be at a dinner right now, but I'm hiding in my room to post this first. Mostly because, UGH, I love my family, but I don't have to love them all weekend do I?

Anyway, first of all, consider this... a music rec? I saw Jarrod Gorbel open for fun. in St. Louis last month and was smitten pretty much right away. And 'Impressions' just... This song, you guys, this song.
Watch this video and fall in love! )

Look, I'll I'm saying is: "wash it off your skin / leave the wreckage of your sins / feels a lot like, feels a lot like a new beginning"

If the Inception team were going to have completely ridiculous/useless superpowers what would they be? I don't mean like, invisibility, or mind reading. I mean ridiculous! Who can make bagels (and nothing else!) magically appear? Who can talk to squirrels and no other animals? What other random superpowers do they have?

Ugh. Okay, more family time now. :( Since they are knocking on the door.

I had a totally awesome and apt title for this post and I forgot it  
Because I am a ridiculous person who indulges in retail therapy two things happened today.

1) I got a shit job at the mall.

2) I bought The Fantastic Mr. Fox* and How to Train Your Dragon.

     2.a. If you think I haven't spent the majority of the afternoon and evening trying to figure out how an Arthur/Eames version of HtTYD would work, then you obviously do not know me well enough at all. But I can't figure it out! Is tiny Saves the Day Arthur Hiccup? Or is Arthur the super competent Astrid? IS ONE OF THEM TOOTHLESS? Are they just entirely different characters in the situation after? Growing up with pet dragons and needing to random save the day from mythical ruin? HOW WOULD IT WORK?

* The title of this movie seriously just makes me think of [ profile] foxxcub's stories about her husband. Yes, I think of [ profile] foxxcub's husband instead of George Clooney. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME FANDOM.

[ profile] bookshop is hosting another fluff meme, and you should all go check it out and participate because, um, it is a thing of joy. I don't know what else to say. JOY.

So far, I've written Eames the Ice Cream Truck driver, but there are probably more to come because I really don't want to do homework. WHAT WILL IT BE, YOU GUYS? Tattoo parlor AU? Dog walker!Arthur? Kissing booth? That cupid!Arthur I owe [ profile] aredblush? Something else completely random and ridiculous?

fic - everything is coming up rainbows - inception - arthur/eames  
True story: today I got a text message from an unknown number. This same unknown number had sent me birthday wishes, and I thought it would be sort of a dick move to answer "Happy birthday!" with "Thanks! Who is this?" Oh, how little did I know. Today, the unknown number texts me, and asks me to be a bridesmaid in their wedding.

There's a very thin connection between that story and the one to follow. I... don't really like weddings. I wrote this for [ profile] gyzym and [ profile] aredblush because they are crazy people who encourage me to be crazy at every turn. Also, seriously, [ profile] gyzym did everything shy of holding me at gun point to make me write it.

title: Everything Is Coming Up Rainbows
fandom: Inception
pairing: Arthur/Eames
rating: PG for language
words: 3580
summary: Arthur kisses Eames on his stupid fuzzy cheek, then interrupts another drawn out "awww" from Ariadne to say, "We're married, by the way," over his shoulder, "in real life. Did you guys not know that?"
disclaimer: I do not own Inception or Care Bears, and I cannot be held responsible for tarnished childhood memories.
notes: This is the prequel to Let the Fun Shine In, but if you haven't read that one, then this one probably won't make a lot of sense. Sorry! Again, all blame should be directed at [ profile] gyzym. Thanks to [ profile] musesfool for the short-notice beta.

Art (which is so much more adorable) to go with this story by [ profile] aredblush can be found here and here. ETA: And here!!!!!!

bad ideas, I has them!  
Bad idea I totally want to write #1: The AU where Arthur is a less than ethically sound computer forensic technician who hacks into high security government websites when he needs to calm down, and Eames keeps creating and giving him viruses because he needs to break down his firewall. It would be called Love Bytes. Because I am the lamest lame that ever lamed.

Bad idea I totally want to write #2: The AU where Arthur is the frustrated crime reporter for the local small town newspaper, and Eames, after being called out for excessive unpaid speeding tickets, and an inappropriate comment about how he likes things fast slipped passed the editor, keeps committing crimes petty crimes to get Arthur to pay attention to him again.

See Nichole. See Nichole avoid homework.  
Let me tell you a story!

Once upon a time, in a land exactly like this one, there lived a fangirl who could actually finish stories. She's been missing for a while now. Maybe she's been locked in a tower (of homework and gloom), or poisoned by a witch, or cursed to sleep for 100 years (and doesn't that sound nice?). Whatever, the point here is that she's gone, and has been for a while, and as it turns out, I would like her back. If found, please return and all that jazz. I'm going to talk to the milk carton people about making getting a photo put up.

Um. And then no one made out. The end.


I started a new story last night. Yes, another one. The name of this doc file--as I know some of you *cough* will be so very interested to learn--is "hairpullingyay."


So. That happened. Also, Simon Pegg is fanboying about Inception on Twitter and it makes me happy.

remember when you were a mad man?  
Warning: I may in fact spend the rest of the week titling posts with lines from the new MCR song. (Out today! Buy it now on iTunes! :D )

Since MCR has finally seen fit to grace us with new music, I would now like it if Panic! would do they same. That would make an awesome birthday present for me, I think. :DD That or a JGL. Or some Handsome Bob/One Two fic. Or the magical ability to read/write/understand French without having to go through what I suspect to be the long and difficult process of learning it. I'm not asking for a lot, here, really.

The real point of this post, so you know you can ignore all the rest of it without missing anything fun and/or exciting, drive by rec:

An Arthur/Eames version of The Little Prince. You guys, for real, this is just stunning. I don't even know what else to say about it.

This should not be as difficult as I'm finding it  

If I was, say, writing an AU where, um, let's just say professional ballroom dancing is involved. If I were doing this... Can I get away with having Arthur call Cobb by his first name, even though it's not a thing we see him do in canon?

It's not really a big deal, I just keep typing Dom instead of Cobb. Annoying, stupid fingers. >:|
