everybody is so make believe  
I can't even believe I just wrote this.

I am going to be shunned so hard by anyone and everyone who knows anything about dance. OMG.

your love made a slave of me  
1) I have been listening to the Like pretty much nonstop for the past two days. Apparently they are one of those bands that I listen to the album and I'm like, "oh, okay." And then a song randomly shuffles on a few months later and I'm like, "OH! OKAY!"

2) I really need to get anything of theirs that is not on Release Me.

3) Their lyrics would be SO GOOD for story titling.

4) This line's mostly filler!

5) I would like to learn about military strategies and formations for a story I want to write. (Um. The AU where the Inception team are a group of wedding planners. Shame is not for fandom!) But I have no idea where to start with that sort of research. I'm also not sure I'm not insane. Wouldn't it make more sense to research, I don't know, wedding planners? My brain, you guys, it is broken

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

there's not much to do when your friends are all fish  
Um. Joseph Gorden-Levitt is killing me, you guys. I'd like to say I was productive today, but no, I've just spent the majority of the day flailing at pictures of JGL. I have considered doing a pic spam, but I couldn't do it as well as the Fuck Yeah JGL tumblr. Go. enjoy.

Make sure to listen to him sing a song from fucking Sesame Street. Try to not melt into a pile of fangirl goo. I dare you.

I'd say I'm not toying with the idea of Inception fic, but I'd be lying.

I'm about 1000 words into a story for this prompt, and it hasn't gone at all where I was expecting or intending. I'm not sure how i feel about it, really. Oh, writing, why so hard?

I'm not tortured; how are you ever going to relate?  
I need a zombie icon, for all I talk about them.

I don't suppose any one of you can explain postmodernism to me in small words that would be acceptable to use in a speech class? It's a big concept to try and simplify, I think. The metaphors, the reason that zombies are fucking scary--I got that. I can simplify that for a general audience. It's the postmodern concepts that tie in that I'm having issues with.

Of course, when am I ever not having issues?

Bah, and also humbug.

Have the beginning of my Brendon/Spencer zombie apocalypse AU that I wrote, and then decided failed as a beginning. I'm not giving up on the story, I'm just giving up on this part of it. I think. I promise to shut up about zombies soon.

The Beginning is Here )
