Steve and Danno: It's a TV Cop Fantasy  
So, I've fallen into the pit of a television cop show that is the Hawaii Five-0 reboot. And, in the words of My Chemical Romance, I won't go down by myself.

This is not a Hawaii Five-0 pimping post. This is a Steve/Danny pimping post. Because spoiler: Steve and Danny are married. Chin (Daniel Dae Kim, omg, so much love) and Grace Park (testing your heterosexuality since 2010) are fantastic! They are kickass. They are the second and third best reasons to watch this show, but they aren't going to be featured here. It's isn't at all because I don't adore them; it's just because I think anyone who'd even consider the show would do so because Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park.

So, what it boils down to is this, the number one reason to watch this show: So you can fall in love with Steve and Danny and write me all of the fic.

Let's begin with an introduction. Beware of spoilers, excessive youtube links, and things you wouldn't think could actually be canon )

The Basics and Fun Canon Facts. Same warnings as before. )

Steve/Danny fic recs! With stories from every option on the rating menu, so beware if you're underage! )

Where to find pretty things and other awesomeness )

In conclusion:

Now write me some fic :D

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.

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:

on ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur by [ profile] rollsofrice
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.
'Yes,' said Eames. There was little use hiding these things on a planet the size of a small house, where things would catch up to you eventually, even if you constantly took several steps to the right.

stop disappointing me, internet. >:|  
Today is shaping up to be one big black hole of suck, for no reason I can actually put my finger on.

So, I would like to make this post a HAPPY PLACE.

Gimmie your recs, tell me a joke, post something nice about someone on you f-list, show off a gif, in general, SPAM WITH THINGS THAT BRING YOU JOY, PLEASE. Spread it around! Direct others! No angst, no drama, no gloom! Just things to brighten the day for yourself and/or others (like me)!

Look, look, I will start. Recs!

Mr. Eames and Mr. Eames by [ profile] jibrailis
Eames goes undercover as an advice columnist and Arthur is a mail-order-bride. This entire thing is just joy.

This Life Looks Good On You by [ profile] gyzym
There are only four rules in Arthur's house. Glorious, wonderful domestic Arthur/Eames, where they accidentally set things on fire and are happy and in love. And it just makes me smile a lot.

write all the cliches?  
Things of note:
  1. I am currently trying to talk [ profile] musesfool into writing a story with ALL THE CLICHES IN THE WORLD.
  2. ... How many fanfic tropes could you fit into one story?
  3. Shut up. I am totally not tempted to try and write all the cliches.
  4. Though, lucky for me, [ profile] jibrailis wrote The Big Sleep, which is a story where Arthur's vicious in his sleep, and Eames subdues him with petting. You guys, this is the story of my heart! Having to be stealthy to cuddle! Petting! Hating on the creeptasticness that is Edward!
  5. \o/
  6. Also, the awesome thing about fandom: someone else will write it so you don't have to! :DDD
  7. Okay, so I might be considering attempting the write all the cliches.

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 [ 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 [ 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, [ 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?


Look! A meme!

As last seen with [ 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::

You guys! You guys, LET ME TELL YOU A STORY. This is a story of Fandom History.

See, it happened like this [ profile] bookshop on a dark and stormy posted a prompt the the [ profile] inception_kink meme.

[ profile] jibrailis wrote an AMAZING fill for this prompt, Flannel: A Love Story, which you should all go read if you haven't yet, because, see earlier re: AMAZING.

[ profile] aredblush read this story, and then drew adorable art for it!


I filled this request with the story I posted in the dead of night last night/this morning, Like I Wanna Live Now, because I've apparently given up the ghost of writing something that isn't so fluffy cotton candy takes a step back to say, "whoa, whoa... that is fluffy."

THEN (and this is the most exciting part for me, really) [ profile] aredblush decided to DO ARTWORK FOR THE STORY. You guys, it is so adorable! It is the most adorable ever! I am just OVERCOME WITH HEARTEYES. GO LOOK AT IT, I PROMISE IT IS WAY CUTER THAN THE STORY COULD EVER DREAM OF BEING!

In more happy-making things:

Haircut today!

And, I know, you've probably seen this little video, but...


If you'll excuse me, I need a moment to collect myself from all the JOY.

I'll tell you anything, but not the truth  
Went to a BBQ at a friend's house this afternoon for Labor Day. I realize I'm pretty much the least social person ever, but oh my god. I love her dearly! I wanted to punch her friend a lot. I can't decide if he's an asshole or an idiot, and after one too many "well, what do you expect, she's a girl" comments followed by YET ANOTHER BOUT of not attempting to keep his kid from pushing people, I had pretty much had enough and made an early escape.

Now I'm irritated and tired.

Instead of doing something like homework, I've been working on this story. It started off as comment fic. It was 500 words, and I was just going to clean it up a little bit and post it. It's now 5000 words, and still needs a better ending put in, so, lord, it'll probably end up around 6k, at least. I have no idea how this happened, and it is absolutely the most ridiculous thing in the world. I sort of love it. If I knew what shame as anymore I'd have it.

Ridiculous fic thing, so you all can start judging me before I even post it )

Honestly, I don't even know what this is anymore.

Have a couple of recs, for some fic that's actually good!

Les Jeux Sont Faits by [ profile] tequilideas. A stunning look at Arthur and Eames. It hurts, but in all the best ways.
“All romances are tragedies, darling,” Eames said, finger still holding Arthur’s place, pressed between pages that were filled with nostalgia and fantasy. “Some of them just end before they get there.”

En haut et en bas by Anon ([ profile] weatherfront?). This was done for the prompt, "Mal made them do it." It doesn't go at all like you expect. It's sad, and it's hopeful.
Eames remembers this because that's the moment that he falls in love.

Uploaded this for someone else earlier, but if you're interested Panic! at the Disco - Skid Row

Shh. No, I'm totally in bed. And asleep. I did not just stay up until almost 5AM writing, because that would be insane. Especially since I have a programming assignment due tomorrow and an exam in my federal government class on Friday that I haven't even begun to study for.

But, you know, ANYWAY. Let's talk about how Tom Hardy makes doing push-ups look like he's doing porn. )

I just don't even know what to do with this video. Other than get a whole new appreciation for Tom Hardy's ass, because, holy shit. Let's focus on that some more.

Also, so my one true love doesn't think I'm abandoning him for pillow-lippy pastures, how about a video where... a lot of things happen, but my brain gets stuck on how JGL apparently likes it when it's hard )

Also, he laughs. ::chin hands:: I enjoy that a great, great deal. For the record.

Um. Have a rec!

Dream a Little Dream by [ profile] meiface. An Arthur/Eames version of the Bank Robber dance video that JGL and Zooey Deschanel did. It's got an amazing flow, and is just the loveliest thing I've read in days. (Which, let's me fair, in Inception fandom is saying something.)

I owe a ton of people emails, and should totally be doing homework, but instead I'm looking for a certain Arthur/Eames fic I read yesterday and now cannot find. I love how the Inception fandom has exploded, but damn it's hard to keep up with it.

Anyway, something I never do!

SYTYCD spoiler? )

The LXD has started! It's just a super interesting concept, and I'm going to go ahead and put "Harry Shum Jr. choreographing on SYTYCD" on my Random Fannish Desires list. Dancing as a superpower! I sort of can't wait for more of that. I keep wishing I could train my body to do that. My body keeps laughing at me though, so I'm going to go ahead and guess that no, no, I never ever could.

Speaking of Things I Wish I Could Do, you guys, someone needs to tell me where I can get the skill to write something like this Simpsons/SPN fusion story. It's so completely random, and so completely awesome, and someone just really needs to direct me to that store, basically.

Hopefully mother nature will not see fit to continue her personal vendetta against the union of me and Warped Tour. Hopefully.

For the, like, three of you who are interested: All Caffeine-Free Faux-Punk Fatigue by [ profile] paperclibbitch is an awesome Glee fic. Puck/Kurt and Quinn/Mercedes, set post-Journey, so make sure you're caught up before you read it.

I don't have a Glee icon! This will have to do!  
Spoilers for Glee? Well, no, not really. A character spoiler for Glee? But I like to think that it's something that's already been made clear before? )

Also, Puck continues to be the one I want to listen to sing the most.

Speaking of Puck! My God, he is hot. Hot like burning. Hot like fire. Pretty, pretty fire.

I am seriously considering writing the fic where he decides that, no, as a matter of fact, he is not going to sign over parental rights*, and ends up keeping the baby and trying to raise her on his own, in his very own failtastic but trying manner that I happen to find so ridiculous and adorable. Also, I may have no desire to ever reproduce, but something about a badass with a baby just really does it for me. I don't get it. He would be working, and trying to keep up in school, and randomly conning other glee kids into babysitting! He'd bring her to practice, sometimes, and they'd argue over lullabies, and whatever, he would always sing her to sleep, and every time he did she would grin and that made everything else in the world totally worth it. ♥♥♥

Or, you know, not. Because apparently I fail at doing anything light or funny or sweet, and I's gots to bring the angst. Even though there are some fandoms where the thing I want most if for them to get lots and lots and lots of hugs. So many hugs. ALL THE HUGS IN THE WORLD. ::cough:: I'm sure you all could not guess which fandom that is, either.

I mentioned this to [ profile] sleepismyfriend last night, and she informed me that, most likely it already exists somewhere on the internet, so I shouldn't bother. But I cannot find it! Now, I'm not particularly shippy about Glee, beyond "...will this get Puck to sing and/or remove his shirt?" because my priorities are awesome. But in my search for this Puck + baby fic, I ran across 'Cause You've Got An Awfully Long Way to Go by [ profile] paperclipbitch which is Kurt/Puck that I can totally and completely get behind. It's long and filled with cliches that I love a stupid amount, and has like, the very best Kurt voice ever, and basically, I might just start shipping Puck/Kurt full time now. It's so great, it didn't even make me want Finn to be punched in the face, you guys. You should all go read it, and then find me my damn Kurt + baby fic.

Especially since, hilariously, nobody could agree on what I should write next. Nothing got more than one vote! And at this rate, if I have to go and choose something myself, it will be this, and not something from my to-do list, which is just sad. I want to mark something off of that. It's getting a little bit out of control.

Yesterday, I let my brother shame me into working out, and now my everything hurts. Everything! All of it! And I was up, um, all night, reading that fic, so I'm put myself down for a nap before I turn into a cranky, cranky baby. I'm totally going to be mourning the fact that I do not have a Puck to sing me to sleep though.

Now, I'm gonna bury this in a tl;dr post of random fandom flailing so it makes me seem like less of douche, but: A public service announcement: If one of the warnings you attach to your fic is "OOC" then you are doing it wrong..

* Does the show even realize this has to happen for the baby to be put up for adoption? Is this one of those fail things like how they think you can tell if it's a boy or a girl before you're even showing? Has no one on that writing staff ever been around someone pregnant at all? Why is there not a person whose job it is to say, "... dude, no, no, that is not how that works."? BURNING QUESTIONS.

you'd have a happy life if you did the things you liked  
[ profile] luzdeestrellas wrote me fic because she thinks I'm awesome. She said it was for my birthday, but since that was ages ago, clearly that can't be it. You should all go read it though! It's Sam and Dean being awesome and calling each other names and making out. So SPN as it should be. Boys.

I love those Winchester boys, you guys. I've spent five years watching them bicker, and banter, and get kicked around, and try to save a life or save the world. I've seen them and their best, and their worst, and their most honest. I've watched them lie, get beat up, get heart broken, and do the last thing they want to do because it's what's right. I want to bring them home and feed them cookies and give them hugs and that safe place they've never really had.

They are my very favorite boys.

I mean, I'm also fond of some other dudes. Against my better judgment, I love Pete Wentz and all his emo, apparently. So.

Last night I had a dream that [ profile] prettykitty_aya and [ profile] universeunfold and I went to a FOB show that was the size of an Empires show. There was someone else there I didn't know, who was apparently a friend of theirs, who just laid in the floor reading a newspaper. I don't even know. The guys were milling about and Andy kept hugging Shai. Treva told Pete that one of the songs was impossible to not dance to, and Pete laughed and did the stupid, "haha you liiike me" thing. So I made fun of his hair. Then we all proceeded to argue with him, when he said he was going to grow it out the length of Andy's and see if he looked like Dave Grohl. Then, because Shai and I have vowed we are not driving home after a show again, Pete decided he would drive us, and Treva thought it was a fantastic idea.

It was not.

Where do I go to apply for a new brain, since I have clearly lost mine?

So, yeah, let's not talk about how badly I should be writing my small fandom big bang. Let's just not.

But! Hey, look, I'm not dead? Isn't that cool?

Let's just call this a fly by recs post of fluffy fluffivity. Or something, yeah? I like making up my own words.

The Negotiation Limerick File - Funny, funny, funny fic. Like, listen, people, really. This is what is so awesome about bandom. It can make me smile like no other. For so much emo, there is really so little angst. And anyway, super!secret!spy!fic FTW. We'll pretend it isn't a Panic/MCR crossover. Because I don't read MCR. I do not!

A Day Like Today - To myself, I call this fic PROOF THAT LAURA LOVES ME LIKE BREATHING. It's Sam! And Dean! And hugs! Dude, really, really, are there two boys in the world who need hugs more than Sam and Dean? I think not.

What Kind of Day Has It Been - Sam and Dean meet the Muppets! Just, you know what, just click it. You will, I swear, hand to god, you will laugh until you die.

Brendon Urie cover of Slow Motion - Vid rec! Mostly because it makes me flail around and tell anyone who will listen how OMG I WANT TO MARRY BRENDON URIE'S VOICE OMGOMGOMG HI. No, you know what, I don't know why. I just do. It's a sickness!

1) What's a girl gotta offer to get caps of The Daily Show? Fic? Sexual favors? I just want one or two from last night's show. I need a Gryffindor!Jon icon. Don't you understand?
2) My tummy hurts.
3) I've yet to write anything this year. What'cha think about that?
4) No, I do not have a Spice Girl's song stuck in my head because my soundcard keeps randomly deciding that it's not going to work until after I restart. But thanks for your concern.
5) Why does the fic I want to read not just magically appear on my f-list? Other people, they want fic, and magically, there it is. I feel you lot are slacking.
6) This weekend I will be going to see Brokeback Mountain. With my mother. Who keeps calling it Bareback Mountain. Hopefully. I don't know if I'm disturbed or amused.
7) I've started a list of Scrubs recs (on lj). This is bad, people. I don't rec. I don't. I, in general, flail about sadly and this is on LJ, because the rest of the internet is not handy and easy to click a little heart and put into my memories and, my god, have I even begun to rant about LJ and their dislike of the memories feature yet? Because I gotta tell you, they aren't fond of it at all, they way it only loads every other time you click on it, and you have to spend twice as much time refreshing just to get it up and hey, look ma, I still have runon sentences.
8) It's Got a Good Beat and You Can Dance to It: The Multifandom mp3 ficathon. Not because I am an addict. Not because I am weak, but because I made her do it. Yes, yes, it's true. I am all powerful that way. So go, I say! Go and sign up, and do not fear that you will end up having to write a story for Santa Baby!
