I'm entering the home stretch here. If you're following this as I post, I'm sure you've noticed the time between chapters has been getting longer and longer. RL and other WIPs have been demanding my time. So this chapter is a bit longer to hold you over. There's one more chapter that's already been written, just needs beta'd, then a couple more that only have vague outlines. I think we're looking at 11-12 chapters, and they should all be up within a month, I hope. It keeps getting longer, which is why I have to keep pushing back my estimate of how long it'll take.

Just got my tickets for FOB/P!atD tour this fall. Sooo jazzed. Luckily I managed to score floor, so now I just gotta get in line early...

Okay, I don't care if I'm the only one, I love love love Young Volcanoes. The video for the Phoenix made it difficult for me to like the song--it wasn't until I listened to it w/out the video that I started liking it. This video, on the other hand--Patrick's acting is seriously amazing. ***Spoilers for the video*** )

Parts are going to be slow coming from here, as I reach then end--probably a week between them. I'm not really happy with how it is right now and I'm trying to overhaul it. That's why this part was so long in coming (along with me being sick). So, yeah, it's more or less finished, but needs a fair amount of work. Probably 3 or 4 more parts.

Okay, I have a lot of feels about the album. There are a few songs I loved immediately, which is rare for me, and there are some that have grown on me. Others...not so much. To be fair, Young Volcanoes and The Phoenix both took a LOT of listens, so maybe these ones will eventually grow on me, too. However, I can't even really listen to Rat A Tat with that beginning. I'm sorry, I was trying to give it a shot. There are a couple Hole songs from the early 90s that I liked, so...you know, I'm not necessarily against Courtney Love from the go...how*ever* her little...IDEK, rap?? is so painful to listen to, and the whole "It's Courtney, bitch," makes me cringe so hard in embarrassment for them. Like, what, she's still relevant in anyway? Sorry, honey, no one *cares* if it's Courtney. Maybe I'll get over it. I hope so, because I actually like the lyrics in it, particularly in the second verse. Meh. And who knows, I might be the only person in the world who feels that way.
Anyway, overall, I like it. It is definitely my least favourite of all their albums, but considering how much I love them, and love all their albums, that doesn't = bad. Just not to my tastes, entirely. I'll deal with it, and there are a few of the songs that will become favourites, I know. I'm just glad that they are constantly changing, which means the next album will be different from this.

Oh my, someone please tell me there are all kinds of hot foursome fics following the Peter/Sara photography session. Elle was so into directing it, and poor Neil chugging the champagne...that kid wants it bad. Just saying. I need to find these fics.

Muse and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary this weekend, which was awesome on many levels. For one, I never thought, at the beginning, we'd make it a year, let alone 10. She was the sweet, innocent Mormon still clinging to the idea that she'd have a temple marriage someday, and I was way too jaded and screwed up for my 19 years. Now here we are with a house and a baby, and Muse about to start TTC with number 2. Secondly, we stayed at an awesome bed and breakfast. It was only a couple hours from home, but my parents took the kid, and the b&b was amazing, which is really all we needed. It was a 3 room suite, with a gorgeous 4-poster bed, tv/dvd, fireplace in the bedroom, a table (you could choose your breakfast time, and dine in room if you wanted), second fireplace, and GIGANTIC whirlpool/hot tub in the outer room, and a private bathroom. Plus there was a private porch, beautiful garden with koi pond, and the main kitchen stocked with free beverages, snack foods, and the lady would put fresh baked sweets in there every day. And the food!! Omg. They let you choose from a menu of about 10 items for breakfast. We enjoyed their banana walnut stuffed french bread, spicy breakfast burritos, and these awesome egg and potato pies on English muffins with tomato and spinach. Served every day with fruit bowls, tea and juice. Guh.

The first day we took a nap (moms!) then went out to dinner at an Asian fusion restaurant and went bowling after! We haven't bowled in almost as long as we've been together! I got a strike on the first go. By five turns in, it was all gutters. In the end it evened out. We only paid for an hour, but it was a lot of fun, and felt like much longer. Then we enjoyed the hot tub and cuddled up with Psych.

The second day we got our tattoos!

Mine is the key, hers is the lock. The ivy means "fidelity, friendship, and marriage" and the clover means "be mine." When she proposed, she wrapped the ring box in ivy, and there were clovers in the box.

We had a magnificent dinner with wine flights and amazing desserts, and a bartender who kept giving us freebies, then cuddled with episodes of Justified and went to bed early. Then, because we're super lame, rather than doing any of the things we planned on Sunday, we went home early, because we missed our son. And came back to find my mom had taken him to meet the Easter bunny. I love my dubious-looking boy:

I feel like there's an end in sight. This will probably end up being around 10-12 parts. Having a bit of trouble with the last couple parts, and with this one, so it might be more like a couple weeks before I'm finished, rather than a few more days, but I'll just space the parts out a bit more until I finish. I'm not 100% happy with how this chapter turned out, but after fussing with it for several days, I'm giving up and giving in.

Oh, boys. I'm not sure how I feel about the song, really. I've listened to it a couple times, and I'm already liking it better than I initially did, but the chorus is never going to win me over, and the bridge lyrics are just breaking my heart. Seriously? back with attack with back?
The video, however, is made of love and lols. I mean, sure there have been videos like What a Catch, Donnie, where Patrick was basically the only person in them, and it still felt like he wasn't there, like was just a cipher for Pete. It was almost electric watching him in this video. Like watching him find his stride. He is a fucking front man here, and it's so freakin' cool to see.

We went to a March for Marriage Equality today downtown. It was, honestly, a little depressing. Columbus has a huge gay population, and the turnout was only around 800. Blah. Seriously? But Mr. E got his photo taken by the newspaper and we were interviewed, and asked if we'd be willing to do a follow-up when marriage is legal. I'm thinking, geez, you guys seem a little too sure it's going to happen. I hope it will turn out positively, but I'm a little too realistic to get my hopes up. So, anyway, he missed one nap, went down super late for the other, so I've only just now got him down for the evening. I really should be doing dishes and straightening up, but I'm writing and reading fic instead...oops. Can everyone rec me their favourite Brencer, Arthur/Merlin, and Destial fics?

Meanwhile, I have a lot of feels over the MCR thing. Mostly I'm not as disappointed as I would have thought I'd been. I am a little sad, but it isn't like the heartbreak that the Panic! divorce caused me, and I'm not as emotionally wrecked as I was over the FOB hiatus. I guess the thing is, I don't look at MCR and think "what could they have created???" Because everything they did create is just awesome. I love every single thing in their discography, and it's such a broad, bold collection, all over the map. But the thing is, as much as I do love MCR's music, and their lyrics, and Gerard's voice, I don't feel that same personal connection to it that I do to FOB and Panic's lyrics. I feel like Ryan Ross was telling the story of my fucking life with Fever, and Pete...Jesus, I thought I was the only fucked up person in the world who thought the things I do until I heard his lyrics. With both of them, I'm hungry for more. Brendon, somehow, managed to create some lyrics that, while not nearly so personal to me as Ryan's, still hit the spot. My Chem's lyrics, on the other hand, have been a method of escape. Each song paints such a vivid image, I feel like I'm watching a story, and with Danger Days, I feel like they've created a satisfying ending. Of course I'd still love to have more from them, but I'm okay with how things stand. I got to see them 4 times at the barricade, I've got setlists, guitar picks, awesome vids, and I've made great friends at their shows and in bandom. If anything, I'm sad that I can probably guess at the reasons behind the split (primarily MikeyWay going batshit insane). But nothing's ever over in the music world. Who knows what'll happen 7-10 years down the road when their kids are starting to grow up. In the meantime, I'm confidant that we'll see plenty of their other creative endeavours.
mokuyoubi: (Steve/Joe Toxic Twins)
Sort of a bummer that no one seems to care about bandom right now. I'm not really complaining. And I really have no one to blame but myself for having lost track of what's going on, where everyone is, when I disappeared forever. But, blah. I guess I should be moving on, too, but I really only want to write original stuff or bandom, so whatever.

I totally agree with everything Patrick said in his little rant about St. Patrick's Day. So I guess it hardly matters that, thanks to my son, I was a day late in baking my Irish Carbomb cupcakes, and now I'm settling in with Boondock Saints II: All Saint's Day.

Before the movie there was a preview for The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, and I was just struck, once again, with all the very strong feels I have about that movie. Going into it with such high expectations, and knowing it was the last work of Heath Ledger, it was a let down, to be sure. I try to rationalise that a lot of the problems I have with the film might have been fixed if Heath Ledger hadn't died. They could only use the other actors inside the Imaginarium, and a lot of my issues are with things that aren't tied up/contradictory/don't make sense in the real world. So, yeah. I still like to watch it, and I'm especially bowled over by Colin Farrell's performance. Everyone goes on about Johnny Depp, who I'll grant you bears the closest resemblance physically. But Colin's performance is like a goddamn revelation. He BECAME Heath Ledger for that role--the mannerisms, the gate, his fucking voice--even though he doesn't look as much like him in the face, the rest of it put together make him look overwhelmingly like Heath. There are so many times I watch it and sort of forget that it *isn't* Heath. IDK. People talk down on Colin because some of his choices in roles, or because he's the bad boy and a drunk, or whatever, but I enjoy the hell out of his acting, and I really admire who he is as a person, and I love having him as a GLBT ally. Now I want to watch that.

Hey there! I'm working on about a million fics right now, including the soul!bond fic from hell, which is still making me want to pull my hair out. Argh! No idea which way to go. So, in the meantime, have some of this, instead.

So, a few months ago a haunted water glass destroyed the keyboard of our one completely functional laptop D: It still works, except for a few crucial keys -- dfck, shift...the space bar -- I've been using one of the semi-functional ones that has functional wifi, but refuses to acknowledge that it has functional wifi, so I have to plug it into the cable. This thing is like a window into the past. Funnily enough, it, too, got visited by a beverage glass and abandoned a few years ago. I guess it dried out okay, though, because while it was defunct for a while, it works fine now! So yay! Except I need to finish putting my more recent music on it. No V&V or Danger Days, Neon Trees, Brobecks, or Foxy Shazam. Also there is no New!Panic folder for pics, which is a little sad. And there are a bunch of fics I forgot I even had--mostly GSF, though a lot of Ryden and Joncer that are half finished. I'm seriously tempted to post them in some sort of WIP amnesty thing. There are one or two I might actually try to finish.

Anyway, the point is, I couldn't find my soulbond document (because I'm slow and it took me two fucking weeks to realise it's on the NEWER computer, because I wrote it last year, not last fucking decade, duh), so I just copied and pasted snippets I'd sent people. Then started writing from what I had. Only then I found the document, and there were several thousand more words. So now I have two different (dramatically different) versions, and I like both of them, and I don't know what to do, or which to keep, or IDK, should I try to work it so both versions can happen in the same story. Ugh.

Summary: Part of a much larger fic where Ryan and Spencer go to Whitby so Ryan can soak up the ~atmosphere for his writing, and there they meet vampire!Brendon. This is a porny, plotless, self-indulgent excerpt from that 'verse, where Spencer really wants Brendon to bite him.

AN: I've been sitting on this a long time, and when I was going through putting stuff up on AO3, I got confused wondering why it wasn't already posted. A long time ago someone pretty much tore it to pieces and rewrote at least a 1/3 of it, and made me feel like absolute shit about it. So...I'm just warning you up front that it probably sucks. Thanks so much to [livejournal.com profile] pr_scatterbrain who looked over this almost two years ago, and who made me feel better about it and myself.

Also, I, like Spencer, probably do way too much telling rather than showing here.

So, a million things. Um, I'm finally getting around to putting my stuff on AO3. I'm not exactly sure how I feel about it. I like the convenience of being able to download the fics directly to my kindle, but I sort of hate the kudos deal, and I'm really not eloquent enough to explain why. As a writer, I don't mind having my stuff there to reach a wider audience, but as a reader I'm annoyed when authors don't give me the option of viewing their stuff elsewhere, because...I really don't like reading shit on AO3. Anyway, if anyone is interested, here's my shit: http://archiveofourown.org/users/mokuyoubi

On the topic of putting things on my kindle. I need to look more in depth at some of the links that were provided for me, and maybe I'll find the answer. For some reason, although the mobi format allows me to read fics on the kindle, it will not save my place. Even when I bookmark the page I'm on, if I leave and come back, it's back at the beginning and the bookmark is gone. Annoying, because the fics aren't paginated, so I have to search by location. In long fics, this can be quite annoying, argh. Still, love having my favourite fics at my fingertips whenever I want!

Next, is fandom dead, or is it just livejournal? I mean, I get that things are slow because not much is happening in bandom, but some posts I've read have given me the vague impression that things have moved to dreamwidth. Would this be a correct assumption? Should I be doing crossposting? I've avoided that way longer than AO3, but *sigh* what can you do? It seems like BBB at the very least has completely moved that way.

Finally, fics! Oh, man, I have no idea what to write next. I've been playing around with the Mpreg continuation of the Cinderella 'Verse, which was never meant to become so epic, but which is so much fun to play around with! Spencer will be the one carrying, I think, but I haven't got that far in it yet. Also still messing around with the SoulBond fic, which I'm sort of unhappy with, and the Brencallon, which I'm enjoying, but I've entirely forgotten where it was headed and I can't find my notes D: Also considering working on an Inception AU, Dr. Who AU, and Battlestar Galactica AU (all Brencer, obviously, lol). Basically, I want to write ALL the fics, and I have no idea where to start!
