erraticonstilts: (frank/gerard - bad romance)
the bbb fic i mixed for was posted! you should all check it out here (listen). it's a polyamory fic featuring frank gerard jamia and lynz, it's pretty awesome. also i think it's funny i ended up choosing [ profile] mistresscurvy's fic, since she chose my mix for brbb. but yes, read it!
erraticonstilts: (sherlock/john - that remains unsaid)
i've been reading a lot of sherlock fic lately and decided to make a reclist! yay! a note about the categories: pre-s2 refers to fics that were written before s2 but don't necessarily conflict with it (at least, not in a major way). post-tgg refers to fics that were written before s2 and deal with/mention the resolution of the pool scene and so aren't compatible with s2 in that way. i guess they could be considered aus, but since they weren't intended to be i don't want to put them in that category, so. i still have a number of fics bookmarked to read, and i'll update this list (and mark the additions) as necessary. anyway, on to the recs )
erraticonstilts: (sherlock/john)
i keep telling myself i'll be better at updating, and now february's on its way out and i've only updated once this year. blah. anyway, something i've been meaning to say for a couple months: christmas cards! i received one from [ profile] kidsxheroes, [ profile] piratesunk, [ profile] citibyrd, [ profile] tortugax, and [ profile] greedy_dancer. thank you so much! :D

based on the most recent entry at brbb, it seems my mix was claimed! i was convinced it wasn't, since i didn't spend as much time on it as i wanted to, and i'm not exactly broad in my tastes. but yay! i'm excited to read all the fic.

nothing much has been happening on the rl front, so i've been spending way too much time online. or really, just on my computer. a couple weeks ago i watched all of sherlock, and it has TAKEN OVER MY BRAIN. it's just so good! saturday i finished my first rewatch, and now i'm wanting to start it all over again. i've even read fic! speaking of which, you should totally rec me fic. i've already read this, which was really fantastic. so yes, fic recs please, if you have any.
erraticonstilts: (gerard/lyn-z - just like heaven)
drum roll please ) i'm going out of town tomorrow to see my sister! they're all getting back from iraq, so we're heading to kansas for the ceremony and to spend a long weekend with her. be back sunday!

EDIT: i forgot to mention, the bbb fic i mixed for was posted! here. go read it, it's very awesome and highly enjoyable!
erraticonstilts: (gerard way - come on bring it)
hey! so here's that meme where you post the first line of a fic and have your flist try to guess which fic it's from. i kind of cheated with some where the first line was especially short/vague.

01. "What's that song?" / Brendon's mom sets a glass of juice on the counter right at the edge of the Living section. give me more by [ profile] wearemany, guessed by [ profile] darksylvia

02. Gerard was so drunk, he couldn't stand up. He was sitting on the pavement with his back against the lamppost, trying to grasp a thought long enough to figure out how to get inside the front door. the holly golightly club by [ profile] fluffontop

03. Frank hasn't even sat down when Mikey sticks his head through the door and says, "You're still looking for a lodger, right?" conclusions by [ profile] bexless, guessed by [ profile] fleurdeliser

04. Gerard didn't actually notice that he was a girl when he woke up or anything. wake up and notice by [ profile] cimness, guessed by [ profile] fleurdeliser

05. Gerard hasn't prayed in years, probably not since Gamma died. an inexplicable occurrence of angels by stele3, guessed by [ profile] fleurdeliser

09. Justin can't remember the last time he saw the stars. subject to change by [ profile] soundczech, guessed by [ profile] colorthenight

15. Gerard Way leads a life of quiet desperation. progressive diminishment and the art of living (or, how gerard way got his groove back) by [ profile] coffeewordangel, guessed by [ profile] fleurdeliser

17. They marched back into Colleville-Sur-Mer with the rising sun on their right, its first rays catching the pools of standing water that splashed across their boots. peace which passeth understanding by [ profile] dreadfulrauw

The second basement of Building Six at the Kennedy Space Center is not, Frank reminds himself, straightening his shoulders and stepping out of the elevator, one of the more intimidating offices in the NASA compound. the light from our bodies precedes us by [ profile] fleurdeliser and [ profile] mxtape, guessed by [ profile] fleurdeliser

erraticonstilts: (frank/mikey)
happy only slightly belated birthday, [ profile] lastglances! i really hope that you enjoyed your day :D

tom conrad's new band is pretty amazing. i keep listening to the songs over and over; i kind of love them already <33

we are leaving in about an hour to drive to chicago. i figured it was pointless to try to go to bed, so i'm just going to sleep in the van. i drank so much caffeine today, i'm all jittery and feel kind of crazy and hyper and like i'm going to crash any minute, heh.

i just finished reading the last part of the holly golightly club. if you're not reading it, WHY THE HELL NOT? it's one of the most amazing fics i've ever read, i love it so much. you don't even have to know anything about my chemical romance to read it, just watch the video linked at the top of the first part. seriously, check it out.

okay, time to go waste time until we leave. merry christmas/happy holidays, everyone! ♥
erraticonstilts: (brian/gus)
i've been reading a lot of [ profile] beyond_babylon stuff the past few days. specifically the "weird period" in b/j's relationship, you know, then brian goes to ny and he and justin make up, yadda yadda, etc. it's my favorite storyline, and pretty much the only one i can remember. it's making me want to read the whole thing over again.

speaking of fic, i read all the entries in [ profile] qaf_challenges. i've posted a link to my favorites, in case you want to check them out. the authors were just revealed this evening, so sorry, no anonymity for you. under ze cut )

you know what's kind of crazy? i saw gale's episode of law and order: svu before i even knew who he was. when i watched it purposely, to look for him, about halfway through i realized i'd already seen that episode before. it's funny i didn't remember, because surely i would have noticed the most attractive man i'd ever seen staring back at me from my tv screen. although, gale did look...different, in that episode. not really like himself, and it's not just the glasses. his hair was kind of, no thank you. doesn't stop me from wanting to watch it, though.

okay, something that really irritates me, is people who say that cowlip got it wrong, and they read fic that "fixes" what happened on the show. specifically, the finale. i don't get how people can say that what happened on the show is wrong. it can't be wrong, it's cannon! the writers, the people who created the show, are the ones who decided what should happen; it's not possible that they got it wrong. it's their creation; there is no right or wrong, you know? it is what it is. i mean, i can understand why people would say that, if they're unhappy with the ending or find it somehow inappropriate, but still. it's not a test; it's not like brian and justin's relationship was supposed to achieve a certain level and cl failed to get them there. cl (or the other writers, but cl have the final say) decide what happens, and then it happens. um, i don't mean to offend anyone. anyway.

if you'd like to participate in the once you're drunk it's like, you're drunk party, please go here and fill out the poll.

also, stolen from machiiinaonika:
MS Paint Meme Rules:
1. Comment here and I'll pick one of your LJ interests and draw a picture using the mighty MS Paint.
2. You have no say in what I draw for you, or in how much it will suck!
3. Put this in your journal along with the pictures people drew for you (or, you know, not).

here are my drawings from the last time i did it, if you want to see what you're getting into ;)

now i'm off to watch particles of truth!

i watched clips of hal sparks on celebrity duets tonight. he makes me laugh, so hard. i just can't take him seriously. and a rock star? i'm sorry, no. every time i see him sing i think of michael singing to ben in qaf 20whateverthefuck, and i laugh. more. he is much with the cheese.

i finished reading name your wish, and wow. it's really fucking good. and long, like whoa. but fantastic. it's an alternate version of the end of s2, with angst, but good angst. read it!

and now, 121 caps. photobucket somehow didn't shrink them, so they're really big. this-a-way )
erraticonstilts: (brian/michael)
if you're in the mood for a really good, sort of b/j but much more than that but also kind of depressing fic, i suggest you read this (heh, sounds appealing, doesn't it? :P but really. read it). it made me think, you know. hell, i'm still thinking about it now. but don't read it now if you're feeling particularly positive about qaf at the moment. i was. it's like, i go through cycles. sometimes i feel really good about b/j and qaf in general. i believe brian really does love justin and justin is happy, for real happy and not just settling and accepting the 'romance is bullshit' idea, and they do see each other even though justin is in ny, and it all works out. not in marriage and ideal happily ever afters, but in a way that works for them. but then i get pessimistic, and think that maybe justin wasn't entirely happy a.i. (after ian) and still wanted the things brian wouldn't give him, and that even though brian supposedly changed he doesn't intend to keep in contact with justin after he goes to ny, and they grow apart and don't end up together. and maybe i take this all a bit too seriously, but i don't give a shit. i like taking it seriously. makes life more interesting.

but if you're looking for postive b/j angst (like, angst but with relief and good things and such by the end), read this. it's long and angsty and fantastic and memorable post-s5, and i loved it.

i uploaded this new icon because it seemed appropriate and i do like brian/michael. just not romantically.

it's almost 11pm, and i haven't started my homework. i told myself it wouldn't be this way this year, but it is. and i can't seem to make myself care.

this post is heading dangerously toward emo-esque territory, so i'm stopping now.

EDIT: interest collage )

so, because i'm in a fic-y mood today, and i'm avoiding homework and figured this was a good way to distract myself, i decided to make a list of all my favorite qaf authors/fics. this is like, my favorites of the favorites. there are more found in my memories. the authors with a * next to their name are the ones who i think absolutely everything they write is brilliant, and i would save them all to my memories, except no, and i had to restrain myself. so, in not too particular of an order, here be the list:

list )

this is by no means a comprehensive list, as there are authors i enjoy who haven't been included, and i only recently started reading qaf fic, and there are many i want to read but i just haven't had the time. and just because they're my favorites doesn't mean they'll be your favorites, but i do think you'll enjoy them, if b/j is your thing.
