If you add me but don't comment, I'll assume you're here for public entries and not inundate you with my personal life by adding you back :D

Hellloooo LJ! Is anyone still out there??? I have been pitiful at updating and won't even attempt to get caught up--I've had a wonderful few months, with tons of traveling, mostly to cons, and then a lot of the same-ol', same-ol' in real life. Mostly I am popping my head in because I've been going through a pretty horrendous dry spell with writing for...well over a year now. I hadn't written a word since the Spring round of spn_masquerade and then suddenly I wrote 12,000 words in one night and finished a story I had been stuck on since 2013, so that felt pretty good and I wanted to share it with...anyone who would listen, basically. XD

Title: Do Androids Dream?
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters/Pairings: Sam/Dean
Rating: NC-17 for explicit sexual content, violence, alcohol use, and language
Word Count: 16,398

Summary: AU: Sam has been training to be a blade runner most of his life, ever since a group of rogue replicants killed his mother in an attempt to kidnap him as a baby. Now he's one of the top officers in the L.A. Police Department's Blade Running Unit, with a reputation for being ruthless when retiring rebellious androids. Problem is: Sam's never been as comfortable killing replicants as he pretends to be; growing up with Dean as his primary caretaker and a valued member of the family has left Sam with a weak spot for androids that he knows might get him killed one day. Knowing that doesn't stop Sam from loving Dean, or from wishing his replicant was as human as he acts. Now he's on the trail of Azazel, the yellow-eyed android responsible for ruining his life, but the closer he gets to retiring Azazel and putting an end to his days as a blade runner, the more he learns that there might be no turning back for him and Dean. (Loosely based on Blade Runner)

Even more important than the fact that my failboat ass finally wrote something is that the thing I wrote comes with beautiful, beautiful art by blythechild. The art IS pretty spoilery for the end of the story, so if you plan to read it, I recommend looking at it after the fic. If you DON'T plan to read it, go look at the art anyway!! ESPECIALLY if you are a fan of Blade Runner. It captures the atmosphere so perfectly and is truly better than I deserve. ♥ ___ ♥

I also wanted to mention here since I have not yet that I am currently findraising for the DC AIDS Walk, which gives money to Whitman Walker, a local clinic that does outreach, testing, and care for HIV & AIDS positive DC residents, especially those in low-income neighborhoods. It's a pretty important cause to me as this clinic helped my family a lot when my dad was sick, and fandom has helped me raise a ton of money for them over the last few years. If you are able and interested in helping reach my target (which I am almost at!!), you can find my page here:

That is all I have for now!! Hopefully I will be back in soon with some Halloween fic, I guess that will show whether I've actually dug myself out of this writer's block hole or if the above was just a fluke. In the meantime, I really hope you all have been well (or as well as anyone can be in 2016...what a year, yeesh). I keep up with many of you on Twitter but do really miss my LJ friends. :( TELL ME HOW YOU ARE DOING!!

Hello lovely authors of spn_j2_bigbang stories J237 and SD10! I am your artist--doing art for this challenge for the first time and both excited and nervous to meet you! Please reach out to me when you get a chance--I only bite if you're into that. ;)

*tap tap* Is this thing on? I have been the most absent from LJ so far this year. Not that that's entirely new, but I have missed the few of you lovely butts who are not around on Twitter. I hope you've been doing well and enjoying fandomly things?

I am still recovering from the awesomeness that was DC Con last weekend. I saw so many great fandom people and I am not even going to bother trying to list everyone, because I will leave someone out and it will be a disaster, but I got to room with some of my favorites, riyku & dugindeep (and does Stacy have an LJ??? I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF STACY HAS AN LJ). We saw J2 and other cool people like Tim Omundson! My ops were...not my favorites for the most part (my Jensen was especially bad, woe!), so I won't spam them, but I had a great great time and after the con, lovely people allowed me to drag them all over my city, and kelleigh even came up to visit despite not being at the con. souslelys stayed an extra day and we watched Crimson Peak (THE MOST UNSATISFACTORY INCEST EVER, SAM AND DEAN HAVE SPOILED ME) and some episodes of the Supernatural anime, which stars LOLOLOLOL THEY MADE JARED MAKE ANIME SOUNDS and special guest Jensen Ackles Bringing the Bromotions in the last two episodes. IT WAS SUCH A GREAT TIME.

The season and I are still mostly not on speaking terms, but HOLY SHIT WAS RED MEAT NOT A BLESSING TO OUR VERY EXISTENCES??? That episode, I swear. That was some Kripke-era magic on screen right there. And Jensen brought his "I actually care about this material" A-game. IT DESTROYED ME. AND THEN J2 THIS WEEKEND WERE SO OUT OF CONTROL. OMG. OUT AND DRUNK AND JENSEN BEING SO AFFECTIONATE AND GIVING RANDOM FANS $200 FOR HER BIRTHDAY. I FUCKING DIE OVER THOSE TWO. Then spending the next day together, too. Honestly, we get no break. ♥____♥

Anyway, I'm in a MUCH MUCH better place emotionally and with fandom than I was a few months ago, so I feel like it's a good time to start engaging more on LJ than I was when I was a great big downer.

Among other things, I have a buttload of fic to post! I'm still woefully behind on every long fic I've touched in the last...YEAR, but here is a bunch of mostly fun mostly porny stuff I've produced over the last month because spn_masquerade & salt_burn_porn bring out the best in me. JUST AS A WARNING, I tried to really push myself with masquerade this round, so two of the fills are quite extreme kinks. Pay attention to the warnings!

Word Count: 4,951
Author’s Note: Written for spn_masquerade.

Word Count: 1,849
Author’s Note: Written for salt_burn_porn.
Summary: Sam and Dean find each other in The Empty.

My last spn_masquerade related thing is actually a plea for people who prompted in this most recent round to maybe help me out?? If the person who left this prompt happens to see this, can you please reach out to me? For reasons? I've tried asking a few people I suspected of being the prompter, but alas, no luck so far. Much thanks to anyone who can help me track them down!!

Gonna go pretend to do my job now. ;)

Hello, lovely livejournal friends. Long time, no post. Not gonna make up excuses or promise to do better--I was in a depressive rut re: fandom for the better part of 2015 and I hope it's over but maybe it won't be, anyway, as you can tell, I've been a joy to be around and you're all very lucky I was AWOL. XD

I HAVE really missed you guys, and I hope your new year is starting out on the right foot!! I'm here a few days late to post a writing meme I do every year, not because I think anyone but me cares but because I think me cares a lot. Before I do that, let me be a big attention whore and mention that I wrote new fic!

Title: The Castaways
Fandom: Real Person Fic: CW
Characters/Pairings: Jared/Jensen with some vaguely implied future Genevieve/Danneel
Rating: NC-17 for explicit sexual content and past homophobia (off-screen), some internalized homophobia as a result
Word Count: 11,683
Author’s Note: Written as a spn_j2_xmas gift for dollarformyname.
Summary: AU: Jared is a passenger on a ship to America when a storm forces them to take refuge on the first spit of dry land they find. There, Jared finds Jensen, a man who has been stranded alone on the island for years.

And now here's the meme:

I"ll write my out. Write everything down far as I can see. I"ll write my way out. Overwhelm them with honesty.Collapse )

Y'all, what a weekend/beginning of week this has been. Yesterday was my 25th birthday! A quarter of a century old. Of course, the most bizarre thing is that 25 was always the age I REALLY WANTED TO BE as a kid when I wanted to be all grown up, so I guess I really am an adult now. I'm quite enjoying it so far!!

I did go to New Jersey Con at the end of September, and it was a blast. Not only was it one of the best cons I've been to all around, but I spent it with some of the best fangirls on the planet, which is what honestly made the con for me. I spent most of it with my G Spot ladies, riyku, tebtosca, fiercelynormal, dugindeep, and costsofregret. There was also some hanging out with fangasmspn and blackrabbit42 (who was so lovely!!) and all too brief moments with fireheart13 and roxymissrose (who I honestly think I terrified when I met her because I got way too excited and she was like *backs away slowly* SORRY BB).

J2 WERE TOO MUCH, as I'm sure you've seen from the gifs and pictures and videos, but man, NOTHING COMPARES to actually being there and seeing all their silliness and their closeness and being giddy with everyone around you and just OH GOD SO MANY EMOTIONS IN MY BODY. Misha was really great, too. I'd only been to one panel of his before, DC Con 2014, and it honestly really kind of soured him for me, so I was really, really happy to be so filled with love for him again. Gil McKinney continues to be probably exactly what my siren would turn into--just so fucking charming and adorable, kill me. AND RUTH WAS TOO CUTE FOR WOOOORDS. I was really excited about her, and I'm so relieved she didn't disappoint.

Unfortunately solo Jared and Jensen solo ops and Jared/Misha photo ops sold out on me before I could buy (they went on sale while I was still saving up to buy my apartment--I made the wise if not the fun choice to hold off until closing). riyku did manage to find me a Jared solo, so I went all out on that one. I'm not posting ALL of my pictures here, but here are the best ones:

I get by with a little help from my friends.Collapse )

Anyway, it was a great con and I got back from it to, honestly, the worst week I have had in A LONG TIME. For reasons I'm not going to go into because I'm happy to let that one go forever. I was worried it would ruin my birthday weekend, but THIS IS NOT THE CASE. I had a lovely weekend!! Mom and I went to see my favorite opera, Carmen, on Saturday and it was a gorgeous production!! And yesterday me and some friends, mostly local fandom people, had a low-key day at the board game bar playing silliness. Probably the most exciting thing--and this is the state my life is in--was that there were wonderful new J2 pics rolling in ALL FUCKING WEEKEND EVERY SINGLE DAY YIELDED NEW BEAUTIES. And lots of Jared/Gen, Jensen/Gen, and Jared/Jensen/Gen treats for me, too. I JUST REALLY LOVE THE BOATHOUSE YEARS, YOU GUYS. I am counting all of these as birthday presents from the universe to me personally:

Seriously, these people are just trying to make me crazy at this point.Collapse )

Anyway, those are the best birthday presents from the universe since the night The End aired. All that remains for me to #Tulpa in order to make this the best of birthdays is for at least some of what they've teased for Season 11 to actually get delivered in the season premiere on Wednesday. Not holding my breath, but #TULPA WITH ME, FRIENDS.

I also got a billion and one sweet birthday wishes from you great folks! I'm going to try to thank everyone, so apologies if I miss you. Thank you to quickreaver, petite_madame, and fridayblues who all drew me beeeaaaautiful fanart. :DDDD Thank you cassiopeia7, fireheart13, and casey28 fot the lovely LJ posts! Thank you to deirdre_c for the delicious heart v-gift in addition to a Twitter spam that would have melted the coldest of hearts and to equally_dour & roxymissrose for the wonderful v-gifts--I love those things. :DDD Thank you to ash48, stripytights, dolnmoon, morganoconner, madebyme_x, blackrabbit42, deanshot, gatorgurl94, locknkey, ephermeralk, and lady_eilthana all for the lovely birthday PMs (which I fully intend to get back to today, I promise!). I got a lot of love on Twitter, too, though I thanked people over there as they came in. Fandom, my wonderful fandom loves, you do not let a girl feel forgotten on her birthday!!

Final thing! In case you missed it, I had a few fills from spn_masquerade and some fics from other places, so I tried to post a fic/day during my birthday week. I only made it to Thursday, which means I STILL haven't finished my spnopera fic, but, I did post some nice (erm, mostly super fucked up) things!


Title: Inertia
Characters/Pairings: Sam/Dean
Rating: NC-17 for explicit sexual content, dubcon in which I am dubious of my own ability to call it dubcon rather than noncon, somnophilia, and barebacking
Word Count: 3,935
Summary: Sam is hit with a spell that puts him to sleep. For seven hours, nothing can wake him. Not even Dean.

Title: Gonna Take You to the Glory
Characters/Pairings: Sam/Dean
Rating: NC-17 for underage (Sam is 14/15), explicit sexual content including barebacking
Word Count: 8,016
Summary: When Dean finds out from some high school seniors that there's a girl who sucks dicks for hours through a gloryhole every Thursday night in an abandoned house, he can't wait for the next Thursday to go to the address they gave him and get his dick sucked, too.


Title: Tell-Tale
Characters/Pairings: Jared/Jensen
Rating: R for graphic violence, serial killers, dark!boys, and lots of character death
Word Count: 2,676
Summary: He can’t help it if he thinks it’s kind of sweet. He keeps the heart in his mostly empty freezer, peeking at it every few days. It's probably not human, anyway. Obviously he’d report it if it was human.

Title: On Rough Seas
Characters/Pairings: Jared/Jensen
Rating: R for sexual content, gore, and general creepiness
Word Count: 5,370
Summary: AU: Jensen is a sailor who falls in love with a siren.

Okay, that is it for me! I am running late for family birthday dinner!!

I just sat here for like ten minutes trying to think of a clever title for this post and then I was like, "What are you doing with your life, Cherie?" Granted, I'm at work, so my other option, after angsting over post title was, "Order whole slew of business cards." Which isn't something I'm super invested in.

HELLO FRIENDSLIST, HOW ARE YOU??? Is everyone having ALL THE FUN IN THE WORLD AND THEN SOME over at spn_masquerade? I've only managed one fill so far, but I've gotten two people filling my prompts, so that's been awesome. I'm hoping to write some more today--my goal for this round is 5, but all I need to do is write at least 3 to beat my previous best record. Can I get a hell yeah for setting the bar low?

Are you playing in this playground? Talk to me about it. How many fills have you managed? Go on. Make me feel inferior. I'm into it. No, but seriously, I am having a blast working on stuff for this challenge, and if you are not playing yet, you still have a full day and a half to get in on this action!

The Parade of Perversion: Fills close September 19 at Midnight EST!

I think I used Jensen last time I pimped this, so there. Equal representation. Everybody tentacle!!!

I have written some other things recently that are also still Top Secret, so once the feedback period for Masquerade is up, I'm going to have quite a few fic things to share with y'all. It feels good. I'm taking it easy right now, trying to ease my muse back into existence after the hit she took this summer before trying to jump back into any major projects, and it's working. That said, I have quite a few deadlines coming up on me, so I need to get with it (*bats eyes at amberdreams--YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN).

Also, who got their spn_j2_xmas assignment and just about died? Mine is for someone I love and aside from that, we are so well-matched it's actually a problem? They listed like 21 pairings and 42 likes and all of them are things I want to write fic for. I genuinely have no clue what I'm going to settle on. Not really thinking about it this month, though.

Life has just entered that craziest period of the year for me. Work finally started to slow down now that the semester is underway and things are moving along, except that it's our performance review period, so that's a little stressful. But--and I am not complaining, believe me--I have SO MANY TRIPS coming up for the last months of this year, all in a row. Earlier this month I went up to New York to visit ordinaryink for labor day, as I do every year. We went to the renn faire and the jersey pool and it was a lovely trip.

Next week I am going back up AGAIN, but for THE MOST EXCITING THING EVER. New Jersey con with alllll my ladies. I am so excited to see tebtosca and fiercelynormal and dugindeep and of course my beloved riyku and others! G SPOT IN THE HOUSSSE. I also have a really funny plan (I think) for my photo op with Jared, and the main piece for my new cosplay arrived yesterday and it's fucking perfect. So, yeah, that's going to make my year. Also HOW SOON IS SEASON 11?! I haven't gotten excited about the show much in the last few years, but everything the boys have been saying...IT'S GETTING SO HARD NOT TO GET EXCITED.

So basically I'm living my life not able to think about anything except how great NJCon is going to be. Sorry, job that pays me money to think about other things.

Finally, I wanted to let my friends on LJ (and apologies to y'all who have already seen this 100 times on Twitter) that I am right now fundraising for the Washington AIDS Walk on October 24, which I do every year in memory of my father, who I lost to AIDS when I was a very little baby. The money goes to a fantastic organization in D.C. called The Whitman Walker Clinic, which provides medical care, therapy, and financial support to people and families living with HIV/AIDS in the DC-area. D.C. still has epidemic-level rates of infection--the highest in the country--but so much improvement has taken place over the last few years, largely thanks to the work of Whitman Walker (which also supplies free medical care to members of the LGBT community not dealing with HIV/AIDS).

I do it every year and it means so much to me, and thanks to the generosity of fandom, I've been able to be one of the top fundraisers for the past few years, which is absolutely wild to me. I'm going for a new personal best this year, so if you have anything at all to spare right now and are so inclined, please support me!

Okay, that's my plug! I think I am going to go do those business cards so I can get out of here and begin a weekend of porn writing such as the world has never seen!

THERE ARE SO MANY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It looks like Fall sign-up season is about to gear up (which means it's almost fall *sobs into sun dresses). Here are just a few things you SHOULD KNOW ABOUT because I WANT YOU TO MAKE NICE THINGS FOR ME TO ENJOY TBH:

The Parade of Perversion: Round Opens September 5th

Masquerade has become one of my favorites, even though I generally fail at writing just porn. It's cute that I try???

ANOTHER FAVORITE (possibly my actual favorite???) spn_reversebang has just announced its return!!!

Annnnd of course the ever wonderful spn_j2_xmas is returning under new management, with sign ups opening in just a few days (Sept. 1).

23 August 2015 @ 03:23 pm
Title: Outtakes
Fandom: Real Person Fic: CW
Characters/Pairings: Jared/Jensen, also Jensen/Danneel
Rating: NC-17 for explicit sexual content, infidelity, alcohol use, and language
Word Count: 8,402
Author’s Note: Written for salt_burn_porn.

Summary: Jared made a promise to himself: if he's going to be this person, he is going to be fully aware of it. He isn't going to pretend Jensen will leave his wife any moment or that he means more than she does or that he can be upset about any of this when he's the one who came along and fucked everything up. He is taking what he can get.



(Hi, guys. I'm sorry I have been AWOL on LJ lately, both in posting and in commenting. I've been having a lot of trouble writing, and it's given me some LJ-related anxiety that I've been...not quite taking a break from, but trying to reduce for a little bit. I have missed countless posts and birthday wishes and I love you all and miss you if I don't see you on other platforms, and I hope to be better about this soon. ♥ This isn't a real entry but maybe I will make one soon. Life is happening so much lately!!)

(Yes, I know I failed spn_j2_bigbang this year. It was a really hard thing to do, but I got to the point where I have a story I'm really happy with so far, and in order to make it into the challenge, I was going to have to rush the ending and drop the ball on it. I decided to take some more time. That said, I *will* still be posting Sensory Overload, which will be epic (the longest thing I've ever written, in fact) and have OODLES of BEYOND AMAZING ART by dollarformyname. It's just not going to be for that challenge. Which is a bummer, because this is my first time not doing bigbang since I got into fandom. :(((( But it's going to be a better story for me taking more time, so I appreciate your patience and promise it will be up, hopefully soon. As I said, there's been a lot of anxiety for me around writing lately, and one of the things I decided was that I need to take some of the stress out of it, let it feel fun again and not like a second job. I am really happy that people are excited to read the story, but I would also really appreciate not receiving anymore messages telling me I didn't post and asking when it will be up. It will be up. I promise. I don't know when. Believe me, I am aware of when I miss fic deadlines and find it depressing enough without reminders.)

(Please continue your regularly scheduled squeeing over how great J2 are being at Minncon today. ♥___♥)

Update: life is still crazy. Moving is still the most stressful. I went to Capital PRIDE this weekend...

...and fulfilled my lifetime destiny to be a person who owns this shirt:

I wore it to work today. Being an adult rocks.

I was yelling so loud and begging with so much intensity that everyone around me was trying to catch one for me when they started throwing them. The Chipotle guy literally came back after they'd moved on to hand one to me personally when he saw I hadn't gotten one. Such was my need for this shirt, and the pathetic desperation I was radiating.

Anyway, all that aside, I had a pretty productive fandom Sunday, and here are the spoils:

A multi-authored fic adventure!

I wrote Chapter 5: The Impossible Dream of this crazy (and highly amusing) round robin fic we're doing. If you haven't been reading along, you'll want to check out the first four chapters (or mine won't make sense) and stay tuned, because there are still 7 wonderful authors about to take a turn!

And once that fun was all up, I unpacked a thousand boxes of clothing seriously who owns this many t shirts threw together this little rec list of J2 crime recs, so check that out if that's your bag.

June is all work and spn_j2_bigbang from here on out. Here's hoping I make it out. XD
Bimbo Baggins
Hey all,

This is just a quick note to let everyone know that, yes, I am aware I did not post my spn_j2_bigbang yesterday.

I really thought that I could manage the first day of posting despite the upcoming move, because I was judging how much time this move would take based on previous moves. Well, as it turns out, it's a completely different animal to move into your own apartment without roommates or adults to set everything up for you, and there is a lot more involved than I ever realized. So many things to buy when your roommates owned everything (like, I knew I needed to buy a baking sheet, but ask me about realizing after you put your dinner in the oven that the oven mitts were your roommates'...). So much to set up (when they tell you to save money by getting the self-install kit instead of having someone come hook things up for you, SPIT FIRE AT THEM). So much to do just to make the place the very bare minimum of livable.

DON'T GET ME WRONG. I still love my little apartment to death. I know I'm going to be very happy once things are settled. But it's taking a lot to get there (I'm still almost entirely packed and living out of boxes).

So anyway, all this is to say: my lovely artist dollarformyname and the gracious mod wendy were very understanding, and I did have to ask for a new date. We will now be posting the fic and art for Sensory Overload on Monday, June 22.

I'm really excited about this one, you guys. It's a really cool idea and I'm liking how it's coming together, and as much as I want to share it right away, a little more time to love on it is going to make it the best story it can be. :D

P.S. This also extends to why I have been shit at commenting on people's posts, replying to emails/comments, and I did see that some of you fine folks tagged me for a fun WIP meme, but I'm not sure if I'll have a chance to do it with everything going on right now.

04 June 2015 @ 02:07 pm
I'm still not entirely sure what is going on here, but apparently at some point I agreed to take part in this lunacy. Me and a bunch of far more talented hags (riyku, alycat, cleflink, deirdre_c, dugindeep, homo_pink, morrezela, tipsy_kitty, zubeneschamali, tebtosca, and fiercelynormal) are doing a round robin fic of some sort. Come watch us write each other into corners and curse each other's names and probably porn eventually!

A multi-authored fic adventure!

Look, riyku already kicked us off, so read Chapter 1 and watch the comm for continued debauchery and hijinks.
Bimbo Baggins
Helllloooo, friends! How are you all? First of all, can I just say I am BLOWN AWAY by how much love and warmth and happiness you guys brought to the #AlwaysKeepFighting Love Meme I hosted? I posted it to try to cope with my own distress re: Jared (so happy he's been spotted and seems to be doing better), because I needed something to smile about so much, and I thought it would get MAYBE 500 comments. It is just under 5,500 right now. BLOWN AWAY BY THE LOVE AND SUPPORT IN FANDOM. I am so, so happy I got to watch it happen, so thanks to everyone who participated and made it a success. <333333

I am in a whirlwind--but a good one. :D Last week, I took off work and finally (finally, FINALLY) moved into my amazing new apartment. I painted the walls and everything. A wonderful fandom friend and her delightful family helped me move, so it was actually a lot less stressful than it could have been. I'm still living out of boxes and have some more furniture I need to buy before the place can be truly set up, and I don't have INTERNET AT HOME yet, which has been trying, but, god, I love it so much already. I cannot wait for it to be all settled. I'm going to be so happy in my new home (and get a DOG). Moving is so expensive, though, and I still have so much to buy/do. /o\ AHH.

As you can imagine, this has kept me PRETTY BUSY of late, but I've been writing! Yesterday I posted my spn_meanttobe fic:

Title: Off the Menu
Fandom: Real Person Fic: CW
Characters/Pairings: Jared/Jensen
Rating: NC-17 for explicit sexual content (underage, 17/21 between main pairing, but there is some kissing before then), physical, sexual, and emotional abuse of a minor (all off-screen, only the aftermath is shown), prostitution of a minor (between 15/16 when he starts), character death (not main characters, one quick but somewhat graphic description), underage drinking, brief mentions of suicidal ideation, and a homophobic slur
Word Count: 26,565

Summary: AU: Jared is an injured kid wandering down the side of the road the first time Jensen meets him. He brings Jared back to Baby's, his father's diner, to help. As they grow up, they become close friends, but just when Jensen is beginning to realize his feelings for Jared may be more than friendly, Jared disappears.

Years later, Jared returns to his diner, but he's not alone. Every night, he comes in escorted by a different john, and Jensen quietly aches for the boy he fell in love with.

I'm pretty happy with it, but honestly, the most important thing is the art quickreaver did. HAVE YOU SEEN THIS ART!?!?! God, can we fucking talk about this fucking art. Jensen's tummy and little bb!Jared. I am the luckiest writer on the planet. Seriously, look at the fucking art.

Now I have to hit the ground running because I post my spn_j2_bigbang on Monday and I have SO MUCH STILL TO WRITE. /o\ Fortunately, I have no internet at home, so distractions do not abound. -___- But seriously, wish me luck because between these fics and the moving, I may just collapse and never get up on June 9.


Claims for spn_cinema started yesterday but are still going on now! I snagged Bladerunner, and I am going to finish the robot Wincest fic I have owed blythechild for almost 2 years now if it kills me. XD

Good luck to all my artists and authors getting their bigbang drafts in shape! WE CAN DO IT!! \o/\o/\o/ And then SOOOO MANY SHINIES TO READ, YESSSS.

Hey, guys. As you by now surely know, it's been a really emotional weekend for the Supernatural fandom. One of our boys is hurting, and all of us have been pulling together, sending him our love and wishing him the best.

While my heart is broken for Jared right now, the thing that has struck me most over the last 24 hours has been the outpouring of love and support that I've seen circulating. It's been really beautiful and inspiring.

Today on Twitter, yohkobennington started to leave random love for her friends, and that made me think: when is a better time to take stock and remind ourselves how much we all mean to each other in fandom than now? Jared's not the only one going through a hard time, and I think we could all use some cheering up.

So, without further ado, I've decided to create the #AlwaysKeepFighting Love Meme so we can spread love to each other.

The rules are easy!

Hey everyone! By now, I am sure you have seen that reveals are up at spn_j2_bigbang. AKA basically the most exciting day of the year. LOOK AT ALL THOSE DELICIOUS COLLABS WE ARE GOING TO GET TO ENJOY THIS SUMMER.

As for me? Well, I don't want to say I hit the bigbang lottery, but I DID get claimed by the unfairly talented dollarformyname. This was mine:


Title: Sensory Overload
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: NC-17
It's been hundreds of years since man fled the Earth's surface to the Metrosphere, a collection of cities built in protective bubbles just above the fatally polluted atmosphere. Life in the Metrosphere is ideal; crime, illness, and poverty have been eliminated, and the invention of affexions—engineered emotions—has allowed everyone to reach perfect happiness with just the click of a button.

Jared Padalecki is the favorite son of the Padaffexion Pharmaceutical Corporation, the poster boy for affexions and for the social order as it stands. He has never gone a moment without being 'fexed' and thus has never experienced negative emotions or doubt. All that changes when he is kidnapped by a group of terrorists who call themselves Naturals. They take him to the Surface, where Jared believed life had been wiped out, and introduce him to radical anti-fex ideas. Their leader, Jensen Ackles, is no happier to have Jared brought to his camp than Jared is to be there.

As he waits for a chance to escape back to the safety and comfort of his life in the Metrosphere, Jared must live as the Naturals do, learning to navigate the much more volatile emotions that come with living affexion-free. The longer he stays, the more he begins to see the dangers of living under the influence of prescribed emotions. Every moment he spends at Jensen's side makes him better understand that love isn't something that comes in a bottle, and it's up to him to take this message back to the Metrosphere. But bringing revolution will require a terrible sacrifice, and Jared may not be ready to give up what he's only just found.

How about you guys? What'd you write this year? Can't want to see all the claiming posts pop up on my flist today! I'm way too impatient to match summaries with the numbered list, but there were a ton of fics I am just dying to read (CAN I READ THEM NOW? HOW ABOUT NOW?).

On that note, I need to crawl back to my mess of a draft so I can get it to my artist without being completely embarrassed someone so great is reading my trash draft. /o\

Today, as I was making my way toward the office, I saw one of the more glorious sights my eyes have ever beheld. You see, I work on a satellite campus as close as you can get to Buttfuck, Nowhere in the middle of a city. We never get the fun, college campus things out here.

And yet. As I stepped off the shuttle (that's right, we have to take a shuttle here from the real campus because there isn't even public transportation out here) this morning, there was a Coke bus parked on the quad. You may not know my feelings on Coke. Be assured that I have feelings on Coke and they are positive feelings.

Anyway, I was naturally excited because "oh, free stuff that I actually want!" BUT THEN. IT GOT BETTER. As I got in line, they asked my name and "Who would you share a Coke with right now if you could choose anyone?" Being bamboozled by the free Coke excitement, I gave honest answers to these questions. I got a Coke with my name on it (pretty cool since my name doesn't come on ANYTHING) and my girl wutendeskind. But as I was walking away, I realized what an opportunity I'd missed.

And that's the story of how, instead of getting anything useful done, I've spent the entire day playing with my new fandom Coke cans.

Share a Coke with your soulmate.Collapse )

I am a Real Adult with a salary and a mortgage.

My highly mature workday aside, here are some other updates. I posted a little fic this morning!

Title: What's in a Name?
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters/Pairings: Sam/Dean
Rating: R for sexual content, violence, major character death (neither of the boys)
Word Count: 1,500
Summary: Five times all they needed was each other's names.

Some really terrible things are happening in the world right now, and one of them, as I'm sure you are aware, is the tragic Earthquake that struck Nepal. A bunch of really wonderful and talented people are offering great fanworks here at the fandomaid auction. Although I still owe charity fic from years ago and thus will not be offering fic, I am offering betas! Guys, I am a fantastic, thorough beta, and I highly recommend me. It's bigbang season! You will need a beta!!! My thread is here.

This is the last you will here from me before the spn_j2_bigbang deadline. I have 17K to go right now. Which is pretty bleak, I grant you. But I've been really making myself proud with my writing output so far this year, and I have a plan, so I am not doubting myself yet. Besides, now I have Jared/Jensen cans of Coke to reward myself with when I strike 20K. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE ELSE ALSO TYPING FRANTICALLY TO GET IN ON TIME. I SHALL SEE YOU ALL AT THE FINISH LINE, MY BELOVED COMRADES.

Hallo hallo, friends. How are you all doing? I figured I would swing by to make an entry, bring attention to some cool things and brag about the awesome weekend I just had in NYC hanging with fangirls. :D

Gonna do this right. With, like, pictures and stuff.Collapse )

I did have a nice little ego boost today in that my writing comm, infatuated_ink just hit (and surpassed) 400 watchers!! That's so crazy to me. I cried the day it hit 100, no joke, because I could not believe that many people would be interested in reading my fic. I mean, I know 400 people is not a lot in the grand scheme of social media, and I know like 70% of those people are not hanging out here anymore. But still. That 400 people ever stopped by and said, "Hey, I want to keep up with her writing!" gave me a smile.

Fandom things I am super excited about:

Have been waiting for *cough* certain lazy bone friends to make a SPN Opera comm for years. Someone beat them to it, and we are all the better for it. I have a cool idea for it, too! I am probably going to come sniffing around for an artist to pair up with for that one, so if any artists are interested in doing opera things with me (er, except murder), do feel free to let me know!!

no title

Not 100% sure what I'm gonna do for this one, but I have been bouncing some ideas around in my head. I love that this fandom still has exciting new challenges like this starting up years and years in. :D


If you were not able to get through spn_masquerade because of the SHEER VOLUME of fills, check out these rec lists I made of my favorites! I didn't read everything, but the stuff I did was marvelous. So marvelous I had to do one reclist for Supernatural and one for RPF over at spn_themes. That's right! TWO fantastic recists full of porny goodies. ^___^

ALSO, IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD, the absurdly talented podficcer, chemm80, made a podfic of Sparks are Whirling Faster, a college knotting AU I wrote aaaages ago. It's SO GOOD and really hot! Y'all should check it out if podfic is your thing, and let her know you loved it. :D

Wow, okay. Look at this 2008!Cherie length LJ post. I talk too much!! Also, I am at work. I should, like, actually do some work. But work is the only place I can LJ, which is why I've been such a shitty friend on LJ this past year. My home internet is THE WORST, and getting my FLIST to load is hard enough, but then getting it to load a comment page?? And post my comment??? Without losing connection and all my hard work???????? Impossible. I WILL BE BETTER IN ONE MONTH AND TEN DAYS WHEN I MOVE INTO MY(!!!) APARTMENT. :DDDD

OH, ALSO. I have been rewatching the X Files. It has been my very best life choice and I recommend it for everyone. That is all.

Good news, everyone. You have finally reached the end of me using Phantom of the Opera lyrics to title every damn LJ post. For this round of spn_masquerade, at least!

I am happy to claim my two fills for this round! Here they are:

Title: Growing Pains
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters/Pairings: Sam/Dean
Rating: NC-17 for explicit sexual content, underage (of body, not of mind) but references to underage when Sam was younger
Word Count: 4,885
Author’s Note: Written for this prompt.
Summary: AR after 10x12: Sam kills the witch who put a spell on his brother before they get a chance to restore him to his proper body. Dean is stuck in the body of a 14-year-old, and Sam should really keep his hands to himself.

Title: Baby Steps
Fandom: Real Person Fic - CW
Characters/Pairings: Jared/Jensen
Rating: NC-17 for explicit sexual content, underage (14/18), psuedocest (possibility of real incest, no confirmation so entirely up to the reader), exhibitionism, tie kink, and come play (facial)
Word Count: 6,722
Author’s Note: Written for this prompt.
Summary: AU: Jared is nine years old when his mom marries Jensen's dad.

Apparently I've been in the mood for underage lately? I blame 10x12. That was blatant lizard brain baiting. Anyway, I really hope you guys enjoy/enjoyed my fills if you get/got a chance to read them, as much as I enjoyed reading all of y'all's fills! I hope to do a rec list of my favorites for my spn_themes list this month if no one beats me to it, so I'll make sure to point you to that when it's up. :D

CONGRATS are in order for equally_dour, who guessed that I wrote Baby Steps based solely on the fact that incest and to souslelys who guessed Growing Pains because...of basically the same criteria. HAH, WHOOPS. I SEEM TO HAVE SOME GIVEAWAYS. And to riyku (who I accidentally wrote 2/2 fills for XD) and tebtosca, both of whom ran a wildly productive porn sweatshop.

Helloooo humans! First off, because I ALWAYS FORGET ABOUT THIS UNTIL IT'S TOO LATE, I failed to celebrate my LJ's ELEVENTH birthday last Tuesday. 11! Pretty soon, my LJ will be trying to get me to let it learn how to drive. Which would be useful since I never bothered to do it.

I am super excited because it is T-58 minutes until the masks come off over at spn_masquerade and I HAVE JUST ACTUALLY MANAGED TO GET THROUGH READING ALL 35 PAGES. I THINK I MAY ACTUALLY NEED TO TAKE A BREAK FROM PORN AFTER THIS, THAT IS HOW MUCH PORN I READ. I did little else at work all week and literally nothing else all today, but I MADE IT. There were some hella amazing fills that I am seriously hoping get claimed. I am so bad at guessing. The ones I know, I only know because all my friends are terrible at keeping secrets, though I have a few suspicions on some other ones!

As for me, I managed only two fills. My goal was three with a reach goal of five, but I promised myself I would not be disappointed as long as I got one down. And two is one better than I managed last round! POSITIVITY. The universe conspired against me a bit this round--the first week ended up having a lot of unexpected paperwork and stress related to the apartment, which I was not expecting to be buying until next month, and the second week (last Thursday - this Thursday) I had a compressed nerve in my shoulder causing all kinds of arm pain. It hurt like hell to do anything, but especially type (even now, it's still not great to type, but alas, I have an addiction). Annnd it doesn't help that I pushed myself in tebtosca's Porn Sweatshop all day last Saturday to get those two fills done. Anyway, I'm giving myself a pass since I had some extenuating circumstances. Next round, at least 3 fills, and maybe one day I can be cool like riyku and write 300 fills/hour.

This is also why I've been terrible at commenting on your posts, guys. I promise I've been reading them, but even now, typing on my laptop is making my arm cramp up horribly, and there was just no way last week when the pain was at its worst.

Not sure if I'm gonna clean up my fills and post them today or tomorrow. In the meantime, anyone got any guesses on which are mine?* With no cheating from the peanut gallery who all already know. :P

* = if you guess both correctly on your first guess, I will think of something nice to do for you. :D
