goodbye LJ

You know, it's weird. I don't consider myself --honest to God-- a 'loyal' person. I'm too logical for that shit - somebody does a bad thing, I am under no obligation to stick with them just because of reason A or reason B.

Uuuuh but I kinda do it anyway. Or at least try, if they let me, lol. The recent happenin haps with my SCA household has been just one example.

Anyway, the POINT is that I have been clinging onto LJ with a fierce grip. Because I have years of my life there, and a permanent account, and I am not exactly a rabble-rouser (at least not in any sense Russia would care about) so whatevs.

But it's time to evolve.

I have copied the whole thing to a DW account (thalialunacy2, the two because i am an idiot, long story short) and today it goes away. Yes, I will lose some things - picture hosting is the big one. Fic links will die, which I am egotistical enough to think will matter to people out there.

But eh. I think I take my preservation tic to seriously, anyway, she says as she stares at the 12 boxes of memorabilia she still has to scan and dispose of. There will be plenty of evidence of my history.

So here goes.

new fic: 'You're Only In Trouble If You Get Caught' (Merlin/Arthur, 15k, R)

Title: You're Only in Trouble if You Get Caught
Fandom: BBC Merlin
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur
Summary: Wherein Arthur is a princess with ambition and Merlin is a dangly sorcerer who can’t help but nick things. Add in a marriage decree, an OAP named Gaius, a really complicated spell, and stir.

Genre: Canon-era fairytale AU, where everyone's pretty happy and gayness & magic are both on a kind of non-death-y don't-ask-don’t-tell level.
Prompt: Very loosely based on Disney's Aladdin, from which came the title.
Rating: R for sexual situations
Length: >15k


( Court is actually *more* boring as a noble than as a servant, something which Merlin quite honestly hadn't thought was possible. On the third day, as it goes on, and on, and *on*, he considers requesting a bit of embroidery to work on, as some of the other ladies have, but realises quickly that he'd be rubbish at it and give the game away. So he merely sits and tries not to fidget as Ceremonial Dagger Number Fifteen is given to Lord Whatsit for a thing he did in aught-thirty. )

'No, there is too much. Let me sum up.'

Star Trek 2009 was a big fucking deal for me, accidentally. Life is what happens when you're half-heartedly writing for six different tiny fandoms to procrastinate on schoolwork, so I went to see it the weekend it came out, but mostly on a whim: friends invited me and I'm vaguely a geek so I figured ok.

And I fell ~hard, yo. In that indescribable way that involves adrenaline, nausea, and maybe even some crying. Like those girls in the photos from the Beatles first tour in the US. I fell so hard I slid without protest into the fandom in a way I hadn't in the half decade since I'd slid mostly out of HP, which had been a complex and sometimes very hurtful period in my life.

The experience I then had in the Star Trek fandom was ~immense. As immense as HP, though in a different way. I was more grown up this time. At least a little. As were most of us, a lot of HP veterans who knew what buttons not to push. And for whatever reason, in Trek I was definitely more of a big deal. I met dozens of people, wrote thousands and thousands of words, read what seems like millions of awesome stories, and exchanged hundreds of comments, on both my fic and others'. It was my ~place.

All good things must end, of course, and I'm mostly not bitter about Tumblr and STID. I've accepted that some things are beyond my control, that things change, and that maybe I'll never be as involved in a fandom again. I've started writing original fiction to fill the hole and I'm okay with that, even though it's not quite the same. I miss the community but I have people in my life from it that I will never, ever let go of. (Much to their chagrin I'm sure. ;) )

My memories of it are fond, is what I'm saying. And my love for it has remained. Jim and Bones still stir me, hearing the French horn rip from the beginning of it all still makes me grin even if I'm in the foulest of moods. It is a good, if not often visited, place in me.

Star Trek Beyond was 2 hours spent exactly in that place. That's the best way I can describe it. From the opening to the very last note, and every spinny-camera one-liner in between, I was home.

I'd list things in particular, but where do I even fucking start?

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

First, the second trailer for Star Trek Beyond dropped. The second trailer which involves 1) Bones. 2) Bones and Kirk having a drink and discussing Kirk's daddy issues. 3) Bones giving Spock deep advice. 4) the trio standing there like a boss. 5) Kirk and Bones in leather jackets. 6) BONES. SO MUCH BONES I JUST MIGHT EXPLODE.

I am so fucking excited for this movie.



And then I get back from a thing and find out THIS FUCKING HAPPENED




WITH RUBBING AND PINKY RINGS AND FACE SQUISHING AND EYE CRINKLES AND ~HANDS GOING UNDER FUCKING JACKETS~ FDJAKL;FDSJAK;LFAHJIO;VFDANLG429J[

And 'I'VE GOT A LITTLE BONES IN ME,' said Chris Pine innocently. What a fucker.

If this is a harbinger for the press tour to come, I may not fucking survive. Please send red wine and smelling salts.

I did it! I wrote a little! I'm back on the horse of ridiculousness! Basically I just had to let go of insecurities about getting characterizations 'wrong' in RPS. OF COURSE IT'S WRONG. I DON'T KNOW THESE PEOPLE. lol. (Although damn, writing about someone as private at Colin Morgan is, uh, more difficult than writing about, say, Karl Urban. Who is a dorky fuckwhit who uses more emoji than I do when I've had a bottle and a half of wine.)

Uh. Anyway. To tomorrow! \o/

fic: 'It Didn't Happen Like This' (aka Frat Boy 12) (Urbine) (NC-17)

AKA THE END OF AN ERA, BROTASTIC BRO-FRIENDS

It didn't happen like this.
Or: Part the Last of the Frat Boy Series

Fandom: Star Trek (reboot) RPF
Pairing: Chris Pine/Karl Urban
Rating: NC-17, yar.
Length: 5,360
Summary: A trip to the past, and three little words.
Warnings: Rimming, alcohol abuse, bros, uncouth language. A whole lot of cameos by guys I knew in college.

Notes: Well, here we are, y'all. At the end of a journey that started nearly seven years ago.

Upon first thinking 'huh, I should finish this', imagine my surprise when I looked at my FRAT BOY UNIVERSE doc (because I am excellent at titles) and a good chunk of it had already been written… not by me, but by my friends. So: Author Who Wishes to Remain Unnamed, [livejournal.com profile] jazzy_peaches, [livejournal.com profile] norfolkdumpling, [livejournal.com profile] jennycarolyn, [livejournal.com profile] tourdefierce, and jenforthewin-- I know it was a thousand years ago, but thank you. Anything funny in here was written by them, for sure. Giant thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] agenttrojie and [livejournal.com profile] janice_lester for not cringing TOO hard when I ask them things about New Zealand and then invariably get it wrong in execution. The two pictures that inspired me during this particular chapter are: Karl Urban the frat boy, and Urbine on a plane (or maybe train, IDK)

That's all, folks. Thanks for being along for the ride. <3
