what the hell, why not  
Twitter made me do it. We just can't get enough of these things, twitter and I. We bring to you:

The Multi-Fandom _______ Made Them Do It Meme


Aliens and Sex Pollen and Pon Farr, OH MY!


Everyone has a favorite way to fill in the blank, so it's time to show me yours, fandom. Is it Tony/Bruce: An Experimental Lab Chemical Made Them Do It? Bucky/Steve: The Shield Made Them Do It? Darcy/Clint: ALIENS (Thor) MADE THEM DO IT? Derek/Stiles: The Supermoon Made Them Do It? Arthur/Eames: The Dream Made Them Do It? Loki/Thor: A Spell Gone Wrong Made Them Do It? Harvey/Mike: A Book Made Them Do It? Sam/Dean: Clowns Made Them Do It?

Maybe that's not it. Maybe you've got something a thousand times better. Lay it on me, fandom, because when it comes to this, the possibilities are endless, and there is just never enough.

The Rules


Any fandom
Any pairing
Any rating
Any word count
Any medium
All the _____ Made Them Do It
All the love.

to cliche or not to cliche... has never been a question.  
Right. I've had something of a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week, and from what I understand, I am not alone. Add in the fact that Remix X signups are opening VERY SOON and I don't qualify for the fandoms I'd like to write in most... The obvious answer is the thing that makes me happiest in the world. CLICHES. So, whatever, let's do a thing.


The Multi-Fandom Cliche Meme



Fake boyfriends, accidental marriages, and amnesia, OH MY!


Any fandom, any rating, any pairing, any cliche. Pick your poison and bring it to the party, because everybody loves a good cliche.

Steve and Bucky undercover at a gay club, dancing close and wanting things they shouldn't? Nick and Monroe make out for cover and realize they don't want to stop? Agent Coulson gets magicked into a toddler and the Avengers have to care for him? Who has to cuddle for warmth? Who has to share a bed with their UST and the object of their lust because there's only one room at the inn? Who can survive the zombie apocalypse, but worries their feelings may do them in? Who has to get someone out of their wet clothes before the teeth chattering does them both in? What about the time Character A has a minor sickness/injury and Character B fusses and Character A is grumpy and THERE IS ALL THE LOVE EVER? What about the one where everyone thinks they're a couple? Where a trip to Vegas/Canada means they wake up married? Or the one where they don't realize they are TOTALLY MARRIED until they start getting toasters and blenders from their friends? What about that road trip across the country that someone has always wanted to take?

Whatever your cliche, whatever your fandom, whatever your character, whatever your medium. I want them all.

some nights I stay up, cashing in my bad luck  
1) HAPPY BIRTHDAY [personal profile] aredblush YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE, BB. ♥

2) Remix time is coming up soon! I know a lot of us have fandoms we don't qualify for that we'd like to, so I was considering doing a multifandom comment meme/prompt fest to help get the story counts where it would need to be. But the question becomes: Random prompts? A specific type of prompt? Or a theme?

So, a poll )

3) Inspiration is hard! And while I'm trying to figure out item #2, I thought it'd be fun to try try and get a headstart. So, whatever, a different kind of meme:
The iPod Shuffle
No, not that one. Let's be honest, when we need inspiration, the first place we go is our music library. So let's try something a little bit different. My music library is no help to me, but maybe it can be for someone else. Here's how this thing works:
1) Comment to this post, and I'll give you a prompt in the form of whatever song shuffles up next on whatever music player I've got going at the time.
2) Turn on the music player of your choice to shuffle, post this to your own journal and dole out prompts. No, you can't hide your shameful music. If it shuffles up, that's the gig.
3) Write/draw/whatever way you create for the prompt you've been given: post it. Again, no hiding the shame. Even if you think it's awful, post it.
4) Link your finished product to the prompt comment, because it's always lovely to see the results. ♥

because a great hug has a little cling to it (et erit cuddles!)  
Do you remember, once upon a time, when LJ let fans do their thing, and we didn't have to worry that six companies where so focused on making an outdated model work instead of bringing themselves to the new century that they were going to, what's the quote, slap at gnats with a wrecking ball? When censorship was something that would never be considered? Back when there was a cuddling meme?

Delicious ate itself. The FBI took MegaUpload away. The internet imploded. SOPA is dead on the floor. It's been an emotional roller coaster kind of a time for the fannish among us. Obviously it's time for this. Obviously.

The Multi-Fandom Cuddling Meme 2: Cuddle Harder


Quick! Before they try to take this away from us too!

♥ Any fandom
♥ Any pairing
♥ Any rating
♥ Any word count
♥ ALL THE CUDDLING

DW only, because LJ has made itself worthless for this use.
Stay excellent, fandom. It's what makes this whole mess worth it.

well then. let's do this thing.  
In the course of a week I have given up the ghost of delicious and LJ. I can still be found across the board (including pinboard, but not tumblr, because I know a time vampire when I see one) with the same username. I'm more active on twitter later, just because 140 characters doesn't exactly require a lot of time.

Work is a lot of work. It's frustrating, and exhausting, and I have gotten sick more this year than in the last four. I have no social life--online or off--and a 15 hour day is actually just pretty normal. I'm living the dream, you guys, and I probably wouldn't trade it for anything.

So I've been mostly inactive in fandom, but that doesn't mean the outrage doesn't stand. I still love things. I still lurk. I still throw out completely random stories that I long for on twitter, and try to convince people to write them for me.

I've been toying with the idea of a Grimm meme of some sort, since I've fallen head over heels for it. (And Avengers. I don't even know, I wish I did.) But that's more than just a little out with the new LJ changes, and, whatever, there are only so many times I'm going to let a service make me feel like the money I pay is worth less than people who use it for a different kind of social networking. I'm a fan, and LJ has always been the one place that I didn't need to feel bad about that, but times, they are different now, it seems.

Anyway, I've had this account for two and a half years now, so I figure if there's going to be a change, I should do it in style.

You're Invited


Please, join me right here, right now for my
Dreamwidth Journal Warming Party



Simply pick out a fandom and/or pairing that you think
should belong in this journal, and tell me where to put them.
And I will write you at least 100 words.
Let's get some paint on the walls!

let's be honest, I've never met a cliche I didn't like  
Because there is no such thing as too much of a good thing, especially if you live in paradise:

The Hawaii Five-0 Cliche Meme


Fake boyfriends, accidental marriages, and amnesia, OH MY!


Whatever your poison, whatever you favorite cliche, it's open and allowed here. Want to see Steve and Danny make out for cover and discover their ~true feelings? What about when they have to pretend to be boyfriends to keep cover? When they're forced to share a bed all ~platonic-like for weeks and keep waking up cuddling and then can't sleep without each other? Maybe Grace playing matchmaker? The one where everyone but them realizes they're married? Danny gets de-aged to six and Steve has to take care of him? Steve gets magicked into a tiny, angry kitten and/or dragon? They one where they must cuddle for warmth to survive?

Maybe that isn't your flavor. Maybe you want the one where Kono is a punk rock princess that keeps getting into trouble? Or where Chin loses his memory and thinks he's back on the HPD force. Maybe the one where Kono is secretly a criminal mastermind, working the team from the inside. Or where she has the chance return to her pro surfing career and must choose. How about one where Chin goes on an epic road trip?

There is no bad cliche! Whatever your favorite, I promise I want to read/see it, too.


The Rules


♥ Every cliche welcome!
♥ All pairings, ratings, mediums, and genres can be included!
♥ Any word count works!
♥ Have fun and be kind. ♥♥♥

There comes a time in every fandom when a pillow fort is needed  
I'm feeling like what the world needs now is some love, you guys, and what Inception fandom needs is so much love that they over-indulge like a kid in a candy store. You feel a little bit sick the rest of the day, but it tasted awesome so it was worth it.

So, you know, I am the girl with the cookies. As a rule. There may also be cake, because I'm trying out some new recipes. Anyway!

ETA: I know a lot of you were mentioning a friending meme in the comments here. For those still interested [livejournal.com profile] yanethyrael has put one up here!

because the answer to "do you need a hug" is ALWAYS yes  
There should be a snazzy intro here, but let's face it guys, the point would be this: CUDDLING. Every one needs cuddling. People love cuddling. I love cuddling. I think Arthur probably secretly loves cuddling. And you know Eames is a clingy bastard. Because cuddling is awesome! And everyone should get some cuddles. So, allow me to present:

The Multi-Fandom Cuddling Meme

  2. All pairings, fandoms, rating, and genres welcome!
  3. There is not minimum or maximum word count.

But now I'm exhausted and have a paper to write when I'd really just like to work on this fic that [livejournal.com profile] gyzym and I are doing, and the world is just a deeply unjust place, okay. Deeply.



Have a meme instead, ganked from [livejournal.com profile] hackthis and [livejournal.com profile] musesfool:

Out of utter curiosity, if I was chained up in your attic (I prefer attics, basements are damp and cold, attics theoretically at least have windows), 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?

Random thing I want #14092010: JGL covering Amanda Palmer's Leeds United. No, seriously. Just think of JGL getting all growly while singing, "Who needs love when there's Southern Comfort." Yeah, you're welcome for that mental image.

When you recover from that: The Like - Why When Love Is Gone. Which I don't so much want to see JGL cover. This is just the musical representation of my relationship with Sam and Dean. "Your love was sweet when it started / but now I find it leaves me broken hearted." Seriously, I'm all nervous for the new season. It's like that ex you know you're going to run into and you're not sure how you can handle it. STOP IT, SPN. I CAN'T TAKE ANY MORE HEARTBREAK.

Look! Meme things! Part 1, because homework is demanding.

For [livejournal.com profile] imagines: Arthur and Ariadne get trapped in an elevator when it breaks down. They experience no discomfort (hunger, etc.) other than being REALLY BORED. How do they pass the time? )

It's Puck's birthday. Does Gus get them a gift? If so, what is it? )

Veronica Mars and Kurt Hummel find themselves under mistletoe at Christmas. What do they do about it? )

If Mal Cobb and Wendy Watson were roommates at college, how would they get along? )

Mal Reynolds is plotting revenge against Eames. For what reason? And should Eames be running for their life, or will they just be waking up with filthy words written on their face in Sharpie? )

For [livejournal.com profile] jibrailisMal Reynolds and Wendy Watson have a dance-off. Who wins? )

no, stop it, I mean it this time  
I am posting this and then closing all things LJ until after my homework is done. No, no, I mean it. I cannot keep getting distracted by Inception fic. No, not even random comment fic I may be attempting to write where Arthur just kind of likes to have his hair played with. Whatever. You can't prove anything.

I'm sorry if I owe you comments, but first I must do this programming and biology homework so that I don't fail out of school and end up unemployable and miserable. Or, well, unemployable. I'd probably still have too much Inception fic to read to be miserable.

Look! Recs!

PASIV/ACTIV by [livejournal.com profile] jibrailis. You guys, you guys, the PASIV MADE THEM DO IT. I love this fandom. ♥♥♥
I wrote you a story, the PASIV said slyly during the third job. You might even call it an erotic story.

the pistol of a flower is its only protection against insects by [livejournal.com profile] stachelyjohnson.
Arthur is an assassin with lawn care problems. Eames... Really just creates a new set of problems. It should also be noted that I've never met a pun I didn't like.
"Do you understand what it takes to kill a cactus?" Eames asks, horrified. "It takes a man who is significantly less hospitable than the Sonoran Desert. It takes dedicated neglect to kill a cactus. No wonder your hedges are screaming."

Also, if you haven't seen them yet, [livejournal.com profile] aredblush drew INCEPTION MY LITTLE PONIES. These are legit the most adorable thing in existence.

Now that I've buttered you up, a question!

Let's say--hypothetically--that Eames were to woo Arthur through the love letters in the form of, say, crossword puzzles. And, because he is a brilliant and complex man, he would like to use many references to Romantic poets and poetry. Where, do you think, would be a good place for him to start?

::coughs::

Look! A meme!

As last seen with [livejournal.com profile] musesfool.

I've made a list of 15 characters. Give me wacky situations in the form of "1 and 3 are on a road trip. Where are they going?" and I will respond when I've got several requests.


Okay. Really now. Homework. ::is stern::

and I managed to survive summer school with my 4.0 intact  
Last night, I stayed up way later than I should have not writing, but watching Stop-Loss. It was surprisingly good? I mean, I tend to not go for war movies, but, well, JGL. Apparently I'm willing to watch just about anything for that dude and all the epic amounts of awesome he totes around. It helps that the other dudes weren't hard to look at, either. Depth, you guys, I am missing it. Anyway, JGL as a fucked up soldier! Singing terrible songs with a terrible country twang and playing guitar and smiling.

Then I watched the special features. And, ugh, I don't even know how he is real. "I then I pretended to kill a guy... That was fantastic." I walked away from that somehow even more charmed. I didn't know it was even possible!

Then I looked at his twitter and realized the dude managed to send himself flying through the back window of a cab... and then demanded someone film his injuries before he went to the ER so he could put it on the internet.

I will totally have something else to talk about soon. I promise. I hope. Um.

Look! A meme!

If you could have me write a fic specifically for you, what would it be like? Fandom, characters/pairing, genre, plot elements, kinks... what's your ideal fic from me?

fic - new age hipster superheroes - glee - puck/kurt  
::squints at clock:: Can I call "homework" as the reason this didn't get put up yesterday? Um. Hey, my first real Glee fic! I'm going to post this and crash, so here's hoping it works.

title: New Age Hipster Superheroes
rating: I think there are Disney movies racier than this
fandom: Glee
pairing: Puck/Kurt
summary: Somewhere along the line—and Kurt will go to his grave swearing he doesn't remember where—somewhere between slushie facials, locker room taunts, all night study sessions, and the fourth time Kurt jumped out of a plane with Puck by his side, Kurt started to get used to having Puck at his back.
word count: 2,241
notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] princess_mir for this prompt. I, um, sort of failed to make it even half as cracked-out as I had intended. Many, many, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] musesfool for suffering through two days of "why won't this work," and helping me make it work. ♥♥

It's my hopes that writing is like a manual transmission. If it won't start, just give it a push and eventually it'll get going. In that hope, a meme.

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] princess_mir:

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request ~something~ of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. (Also, gimmie a prompt, please and thank you.)

In return, they have to post this in their journal. If you absolutely can't write, you can offer drawings or icons or something instead (meta? picspams? reasons why that character/pairing rocks/doesn't rock?). Sigh. This part is... less than mandatory, I suppose. I guess. Since most of you are far more productive than I am anyway.

when I grow up I want to be a professional bum  
Random thing I suddenly want like I want to continue breathing of the day: A Puck/Kurt "Can't Buy Me Love" AU. No, no, seriously. Stop laughing at me! Kurt would totally be Patrick Dempsy! Only instead of paying Puck to pretend to be his boyfriend to get popular, he does it to get back at Puck for being a homophobic jackass. He's a Cheerio, he's already popular. Jesus, he's more popular than Puck, and it's not like the football players aren't terrified enough of Sue to leave him alone on uniform days. But Puck needs money, and Kurt needs to prove a point. And maybe keep his new bad ass reputation and McQueen collection both living in harmony. Well, maybe need isn't the right word. Double-sided manipulation ftw! And, of course, fake!boyfriends falling in love.

Why this fic does not exist in my life right now I will never, ever, ever know.

Anyway, I've been seeing this around on my f-list, and I've got a bunch of new people around these parts lately ( ::waves:: ), so it seems like a good time for a meme:

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she likes office supplies." I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. (Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal. In return, ask me anything you'd like to know about me and I'll give you an answer.)
