This is a pointless fanfiction-related post.  
It does have a pretty cool meme snagged from everyone and their mother at the end. XD

You know you need help when "My Life Would Suck Without You" by Kelly Clarkson sounds like an L/Light fic waiting to happen.

Okay, in my defense--

I know that I got issues
But you're pretty messed-up, too
Either way, I found out
I'm nothing without you

'Cause we belong together now, yeah
Forever united here, somehow, yeah
You got a piece of me
And, honestly
My life
Would suck
Without you

Being with you is so dysfunctional
I really shouldn't miss you, but I can't let you go


...I have so many fics in my head that are basically just songs, more distinctly artiuclated. It's the articulation that's hard to come by. XD

Someday I might actually write some of them. CRAZY, I KNOW.


****


Today's Oh No You Din't (Plz?) goes as follows and relates to the honorable Captain Jack Harkness, natch:

eltea (1:37:22 AM): {Because I was like omg wouldn't it be hilarious if it was Jack, but then decided it should probably be someone a little less good-hearted. :P}
tierfal (1:37:27 AM): {XDD}
tierfal (1:37:33 AM): {Yeah, Jack's too easy. OH I WENT THERE. XD}


****


Anyone want to tell me why my sister and I have become obsessed with Food Network Nighttime?

Or do we not even want to know? XD

It's not our fault; we keep watching the Food Challenges, and Iron Chef America (\o/), and Good Eats with Alton Brown, and Unwrapped... XD

It makes us hungry. :d


****


And now the meme... Everybody's doing it. O_o

➀ comment with a CHARACTER OF MINE.
➁ receive three bits of trivia about their sexuality: practices, preferences, experiences, fantasies, kinks, etc.
➂ ask about how they'd interact with a character of your choice... IN BED.
➃ ????
➄ PROFIT

Go ahead; make my day. XD Suggestions are... anything you see on the Masterlist, which means anything at all. XD Don't forget Nick, Theo, Vincent, Maion, Micah, and Todd if you're a fan. ^^ Or Sam, Adrian, and Mark, haha. XD

Soooo... yeah, I'm kind of one of those sucky writers who doesn't always actually have that much in mind behind the scenes. That, or kind of one of those sucky writers who puts everything I've thought of pretty blatantly into the fic.

Either way, ask all you like. :) I'll just tell you... something. XD It MIGHT NOT EVEN BE SKETCHY if you don't want; I don't care either way. XD

 
 
Feeling: okayokay
On the Radio: Good Eats on Food Network!

Vitamin C: Mello - Pimptierfal on August 18th, 2009 07:54 pm (UTC)
Oh sweet Jesus. Mello/Theo is a ship from my nightmares. 8D

Theo secretly thinks it's adorable that Nick wears lame decal T-shirts. He secretly finds it a little bit adorable that Nick epic fails at cleaning his room and may or may not fantasize a little bit about midst-of-mess making out. He also has more than a little bit of an SAT-word fetish. TALK EDUCATED TO ME, BABY.

(Mello rings the doorbell and then waits, poised with his hips out. Momentarily Theo comes to the door, opens it, and stares.)
Mello: Goooood afternoon, sir. Are your parents home?
Theo: (stares a little more) Um. We don't have time, thanks. (hastily starts to close the door)
Mello: (jams his foot into the door before it shuts; pries it open) Don't be silly; I'm only asking for a minute of your time--
Theo: (shoving against the door) You can't have one!
Mello: (overpowers him and saunters in, then pauses to plant his hands on his hips, kicking the door shut) Well, then.
Theo: (sprawled on the floor, stares up at him in horror)
Mello: (grins) I get that a lot. Come on; time's a-wasting.
Theo: (mortified) What do you want from me?
Mello: (rolls his eyes) Don't tell me you don't want a piece of this. (motions vaguely to his leather-clad whole) Where's your bedroom?
Theo: (squeaking slightly) I don't have one.
Mello: (sighs) Tip for you -- playing dumb really doesn't fly when you're wearing argyle.
Theo: (starts scrambling away) I'm calling the cops.
Mello: (grabs two fistfuls of argyle sweater and hauls him towards the hall) Oh, no, you're not. C'mon, I'm sex incarnate.
Theo: (clinging to the first available doorframe in the hall) Get away from meee...!
Mello: (yanks him free, towing him by his feet) Not a chance in hell. Which is where I'm going after this.
Theo: (wails) I'm going to sue you until your lawyer can buy a yacht!
Mello: (heaves him into the bedroom) You remind me of Near. (grins wolfishly) I like it.

That song makes my Ligh/L fanfic inspired list too! I sing it loudly in the car much to the dismay of my children turning it into a crime against nature in more ways than it already is! XD

Alton Brown! Science Food Geek, how I adore thee. And Iron Chef... yes please, how fine is your paring knife tonight.

Characters of Choice and Fic: Light/L in Caveat Emptor or Chocolate Always Loves You Back (You don't have to do much filling in the background; I just wanna know how they end up in bed :P)
Vitamin C: L - Bewilderedtierfal on August 18th, 2009 08:13 pm (UTC)
I was singing it over lunch today... my sister, who gave it to me, was like, "*FACEPALM*". XD

Alton Brown amuses me far too much -- he's just the right kind of total dork. 8D

Hahaha. XD Weeeell... I think in both cases, it'd have to be on some sort of trip or vacation, at least the first time -- since they're both entrenched in the midst of the Wammy Boys, who I imagine have remarkably good hearing. XD

For the Caveat Emptor pair, I think they'd be doing a case in London, probably not long after the end of the fic, so L would still be making a big point of keeping an eye on Light. You know, for "safety reasons." XD And I think that there would come a point where Light was feeling a little tired and claustrophobic after a long day of running around the city talking to cops and witnesses, and he'd be standing at the window of their hotel room with his forehead resting against the glass, looking out over the contours of the city in the night. After a while of sorting through files and sending off emails, L would shut his computer and pad over to slide his arms around Light's waist and set his chin on Light's shoulder, and they'd have one of those almost-under-the-breath "Really I'm fine" conversations that clearly means the opposite, which would end with L turning him around, pushing him against the window, and maintaining unwavering eye contact until Light gave in and muttered out something about feeling kind of overwhelmed and a little bit alone. And then I think L would drag him to the bed and prove how much he cared. ;D

Oh, dear, the Chocolate boys... I'm sure at some point, Quillish would take the kids out for some shopping trip, dentist's appointment, or something of the sort, and Light and L would be very poignantly left alone. XD (This is presuming that Light moves in before too long, which is still up in the air in my head and in the fic, so who knows -- otherwise, they could just wander off to hang out in Light's apartment, which actually sounds rather promising! XD) In either case, there would be foreplay over tea, probably some feeding each other cookies, and a lot of good-natured awkwardness. XD Eventually they'd make it to the bedroom, lock the door even though they were alone, argue about the possibilities of someone coming in the front door and them not hearing, and then clumsily but quite contentedly get down to business. XD

Hope that's what you were looking for! :D
marissa: Keira Knightley 2abitofadork7 on August 18th, 2009 05:27 am (UTC)
I have nothing to say, other than that it is 1:26 a.m., Eastern Standard Time. Late nights and insomnia rock! XD



...and I'd like to know more of Nick. He was funny. :D
Eltea: Merlin - Those Dayseltea on August 18th, 2009 09:00 am (UTC)
Aww, I wanted to reply and say Hello from 1:26 Pacific Time, but I missed it; it’s 1:59. XD

…speaking of which, I should be going to bed; I have to be at the DMV in six hours. >_>
marissaabitofadork7 on August 18th, 2009 02:57 pm (UTC)
Aw, we were thisclose! XD
Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on August 18th, 2009 08:20 pm (UTC)
1:30 AM and I get along very well. XD

Yay for Nick! XD Hmm, let's see... I think Nick has dated a couple girls between high school and college, but never for very long, which I think is in large part because he really doesn't know what to do -- his approach is kind of a, "Hey, uh, cool. Do you want to go get pizza and watch 'Iron Man'?" one. XD He's not as insecure about his sexuality or any part of himself as Theo tends to be, which I think stems from the fact that Nick's mother is one of those "That's wonderful, honey; as long as no one dies, go right ahead" sort of parents, and I think he's been very curious about his attraction to Theo for a while, but has figured it just isn't prudent to admit it, because he doesn't want Theo to be uncomfortable. It's what BFFs do. XD In any case, in admiring Theo, he has developed a huge kink for argyle, khaki, and plaid, and he consistently fantasizes about someday telling a joke that makes Theo laugh until he cries. Because Theo-trademark Knowing Smirks are nice, but real laughter is even better. :D
marissaabitofadork7 on August 18th, 2009 08:25 pm (UTC)
WHOA WHERE DID THE DAY GO. It's already 4:30?! Totally did not see that coming...

Nick seems like a really good best friend. He sounds pretty ordinary, but in the most spectacular way, if that makes sense. :-)
Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on August 19th, 2009 04:37 am (UTC)
Aaaaah, I hate it when that happens! XD *flails*

I know what you mean, and that's in a lot of ways what I'm going for, so I'm glad to hear it! :D
marissaabitofadork7 on August 19th, 2009 02:34 pm (UTC)
Well it's a new day now. And still in the a.m. So that feels better. XD

Cool! I got it right. :D
Eltea: Pensiveeltea on August 18th, 2009 06:06 am (UTC)
I want… Nicodemus. No, not that kind of want. Well, only a little. And as for the other character… well, since you were talking about Captain Jack up there… ;)

OH YES I WENT THERE.
Vitamin C: The TARDIStierfal on August 18th, 2009 08:59 pm (UTC)
omg, *dies*. XDD YOU DID AND IT IS A SCARY PLACE. O_O

lol why have I never noticed how passive-aggressive Nicky is? He's just like, "MUST NOT MAKE WAVES MUST NOT MAKE WA--*kills everyone*" XD

(Somewhere in an extremely alternate universe, Nicodemus is sitting in the farthest back corner of an inn, sharpening his knives, a slightly grimy bandage wrapped around his right hand. He pretends to be ignoring the bright-eyed, be-cloaked newcomer who pulls a chair up to his table and sets two tankards on it.)
Jack: (cheerfully) Bought you a drink.
Nicodemus: (looks at it for a moment, then returns to his work; flatly) Thank you.
Jack: (contentedly, looking around) Nice place... other than the bedbugs and the rampant syphilis.
Nicodemus: (glances at him, wanting to stare, and then focuses on his task again)
Jack: (nods to the tankard; pleasantly) Aren't you going to drink that?
Nicodemus: (gives him a look, then reluctantly takes a sip, making a face)
Jack: (sits back smugly, then leans forward again) What happened to your hand?
Nicodemus: (mutters) Accident. Leather work, and the tool slipped.
Jack: (leans forward a little more) Sounds bad. Can I see?
Nicodemus: (leans away, resisting the urge to cradle his hand protectively against his chest) Are you a doctor?
Jack: (grins) Haha. Not quite. But I might be able to fix it -- at least let me take a look.
Nicodemus: (eyes him mistrustfully for a moment, then reluctantly unwinds the bandage and proffers his hand for inspection)
Jack: (examines the deeply-gouged gash, carefully and with interest) Did you get this in a stable? Bacteria breeding-ground, my friend... Yeah, that's infected. It'll poison your blood if you don't take care of it.
Nicodemus: (shifts uncomfortably) What should I do to 'take care of it'?
Jack: (winks) Hold on to your hat, kiddo. (sets Nicky's hand down and starts rummaging through the shoulder bag he's wearing beneath his cloak) Let's see, now... Aha. (glances up and grins) We're going to want to go upstairs. This'll freak people out. This'll freak you out, but it'll solve your problem. That's your good hand, isn't it?
Nicodemus: (warily) I intended to sleep in the common room.
Jack: (makes a face, then grins again) Well, I don't. Come on. Bring your drink; that stuff's not that cheap. (grabs his own tankard and starts for the stairs)
Nicodemus: (gathers his things, hastily re-wraps his hand, and follows, fingering the handle of his best-weighted knife and watching Jack's back as he goes)
Jack: (flings the door to his attic room open) Well, welcome to rat paradise. Take a seat.
Nicodemus: (glances around, then sits down on the bed, which is the only available surface in the narrow room, which is narrower still where the roof slants sharply down over the bed, barely leaving room for Nicky's head)
Jack: (pulls out a vial of glowing gold quintessence and flops down next to him, holding it up to the weak candlelight) Beautiful, huh?
Nicodemus: (shifts a little away from Jack but examines them shrewdly) What are they?
Jack: (contentedly) Nanogenes. They'll knit you right back together, good as new or your money back.
Nicodemus: (glances at him uncertainly)
Jack: (idly) It's an infomercial thing. Give me your hand again?
Nicodemus: (uncertainly cedes it) What kind of magic is this?
Jack: (grins) The easy kind. (pours the nanogenes out onto Nicky's palm) Go on, guys; do your thing.
Nicodemus: (watches in amazement as his hand repairs itself, swathed in glowing gold dust)
Jack: (collects the particles again) There we go. See?
Nicodemus: (gazes in wonder at his hand, flexing his fingers and turning it over in amazement) What...
Jack: (brightly) Don't think about it too much.
Nicodemus: (looks up at him, pauses, and then swallows) How -- much do you want?
Jack: (grins) Of what?
Nicodemus: (pauses) Coin. I don't have a lot, but I could always -- work it off.
Jack: (looks him up and down, then smirks contentedly) I can think of a couple ways you could do that, yeah.
Nicodemus: (holds his healed hand to his chest and eyes Jack suspiciously, but, slowly, with a little less trepidation)
Jack: (slides an arm around his shoulders; blithely) ...you're not one of the ones with syphilis, by any chance, are you?

Pretty much my entire music collection is a Death Note fanfic/AMV waiting to happen. It never does, but I'd like to think it might.

Chosen character: Light, from 'Chocolate Always Loves You Back'.
Interaction character: Hermione

So, a day at the park together. How would it go?
Vitamin C: Light - Wettierfal on August 18th, 2009 10:35 pm (UTC)
The worst was when metamorfic_moon was like, "To sign up, tell us four lines of a song that makes you think of Remus and Tonks!", and I was like, "....everything is Death Note now." XD

As for Light/Hermione... oh, my good heavens; let's see... XD

(Light and Hermione, a junior and a sophomore in college, met in the library a few weeks ago and have been sharing erasers and notepaper for a while. Light has finally asked Hermione out for -- surprise surprise! -- coffee. Well, in Hermione's, case, chai tea. They've taken it to a nearby park for some caffeinated people-watching.)
Light: (sips his coffee)
Hermione: (sips her tea)
Light: (sips his coffee)
Hermione: (sips her tea)
Light: (sips his coffee and glances at her)
Hermione: (thoughtfully) I think the people of the world should pursue global socialism.
Light: (blinks) I don't know about that.
Hermione: (frowns) Well, think about it. Capitalism is a deeply corrupt system -- wouldn't you say? It's based entirely on the prospect of oppressing an underclass with no concept of how to align themselves and fight back.
Light: (wrinkles his nose) There are unions. They're not perfect--
Hermione: (shakes her head, bushy hair flying everywhere; she shoves it back) They're not perfect at all. The problem is that there are so many people who are willing to submit to anything just to support their families, and they break the strikes and undermine the unions, and the capitalist machine just crushes everybody except the people at the top. (demurely sips her tea) It's sick.
Light: (pauses) Yeah, but... if you start redistributing resources without a catch, people start squandering them. It's human nature to find the easy way out -- that's social physics; you take the past of least resistance.
Hermione: (sips her tea, sighing) Yeah, I know. (looks at him) What are you studying, anyway?
Light: (smiles faintly) Criminal justice. You?
Hermione: (smiles a little into her tea) Major in education, minor in economics. (swirls her tea, popping off the top to look into it) Shouldn't people want things to be good?
Light: (shrugs) People want things to be easy. Sometimes you have to give them a push.
Hermione: (raises an eyebrow, smiling at him) Into the long arms of the law, I presume.
Light: (grins a little) No one's preventing them from reading Marx while they're in jail.
Hermione: (sips her tea, nodding a little, and then frowns again) It always makes me feel bad.
Light: (blinks bewilderedly) What does?
Hermione: That Engels always gets left out.
give me time. and a crayon.: Light blinkthe_gabih on August 19th, 2009 08:28 am (UTC)
xD

I totally ship those two now. That is wonderful- the last lines in particular.

Light: (grins a little) No one's preventing them from reading Marx while they're in jail.

That? Is him in a nutshell, and I adore the way you've given her an anti-capitalist mentality in lieu of an anti-house-elf-slavery one.
Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on August 19th, 2009 06:27 pm (UTC)
Haha. XD It was actually a bit tough getting them into that kind of position, because they're almost too similar, in some ways! XD

That was definitely the turning point, though -- SPEW philosophy versus Death Note justice. Damn, I love fandom. XD
give me time. and a crayon.: Light blinkthe_gabih on August 21st, 2009 07:44 am (UTC)
I'll bear that in mind. I'm seriously considering writing a fic about them now, on rereading what you wrote. Dear Lord, what have I gotten myself in to...
Rex: DN - Matticequeenrex on August 18th, 2009 09:37 am (UTC)
I pick Adrian! 8D

And also...uh....jebus, man, my character pick shall be... Jethro even though I have yet to write any DW fic but you have so there 8D

Also, also, GO TIERFAL GO!!! \o/\o/\o/

....forever and a day later:

Firsthand
(Deleted comment)
Vitamin C: Mello - Mihaeltierfal on September 3rd, 2009 05:45 am (UTC)
...so I knew you were going to say that.

Not just in general, but I knew that you were going to ask for Two Letters Mello, and I knew that you'd ask about L but that you'd also ask about Matt. XD

Well, since I've abused this meme unspeakably since the start, let's see... I think this Mello is a lot less experienced than most of my Mellos -- I think he's more innocent in just about every way, emotionally and ideologically as well. I don't think he's picked up the leather habit, because he and Matt were presumably too poor (and spent all the money they did have on chocolate and beer, hopefully not to be consumed at the same time), though I imagine he has a huge kink for it. I think he and L will take longer than they rightfully ought to to realize that they both have massive food fetishes, and sundae sex will ensue.

Speaking of him and L and sex, though, I think the way that that fic felt natural ending a bit lower-key than most of mine do is sort of a reflection on the greater scheme of their relationship -- that, and Mello's general sort of naivete, which I think he recognizes very well, such that he stretches even more trying to cover it up. (Not that that ever works for any of my Mellos... better luck next time, Mel.) I think it would have to be at a place and a time that were very quiet and safe, where they could take it as slowly as they needed to. I think there would be a lot of lying around L's room doing case work, just in general, and I imagine Mello would make a game of trying to distract L from really intriguing finds by seducing him.

But in a very guileless way, for him, at least, is the impression that I get.

Uhhh, Mattttt. Hmm. I don't think Mello's really leaving much out when he says they just mess around all over Britain trying to get a handhold. There's probably a lot of booze and a lot of hysterical laughter, but there are probably also a few big fights resolved over brainless action movies accompanied by cigarettes and chocolate milk.

And I think Matt's girlfriend is a girl who's nice and clever and cool, but maybe not quite enough for a Wammy Kid's taste. I imagine that, as L predicts, Matt will be back, though I don't think he'll apologize -- because I don't think he really did anything wrong; I think Mello was kind of bitchy about the whole thing because he was jealous, and I think he knows that at a close-enough-to-surface level not to be mad at Matt when Matt sidles back to Wammy's one of these days.

Where he probably takes up with Near, because I like pairs of things. ♥

....I hope this makes a little bit of sense. >_>

Vitamin C: Mello - Mihaeltierfal on September 5th, 2009 10:53 pm (UTC)
*mostly just dances plz* :3

I should probably write a sequel sometime about Matt and Near. And call it Two More Letters.

Pff, it was like, four weeks later that I finally got to this, and I've still got two more? No WORRIES, man. XDD

I love that song way more than I should. XP Oh well!

Ummmm... OH! I definitely want to hear more about Vincent because I love him to death.

My character of choice will be...Arthur. I figure they're both pretty cocky--*facepalm* I'm just going to stop typing now...
crazyboutremmycrazyboutremmy on August 20th, 2009 07:50 am (UTC)
Ok, Imma pick Nick. But tell me something different than what you told abitofadork7. :)

And character of choice? Would you kill me if I picked Theo? :D
