At Least I Have a Friend with Me by [personal profile] dreamlittleyo
Pairing/Rating: Hamilton/Washington, Teen+
Wordcount: 7,200 Words
Summary: Alexander shouldn't need reinforcements to attend his former fiancé's wedding, but he can't bear the thought of showing up without a date. Asking Washington to be his fake boyfriend is either a terrible idea, or the best he's ever had.

(For the utterly delightful [personal profile] critrawkets/cjackgifs)

1. [community profile] fandomlovespuertorico has started auctions! I'm offering One Direction, My Chemical Romance, Dan and Phil, and Disney's Descendants fic here, but there's a bunch of different kinds of fandoms and types of things offered. Check more out here. Auction ends October 23rd.

Feel free to spread the Tumblr link too!

2. I felt very under the weather yesterday, and I'm not sure why? Maybe just a bad day. I can usually pick some kind of main cause or worsening factor, but I think yesterday was mostly just "you're chronically ill and you're going to have days like that sometimes". My planning format really came through, though - I did a couple of my most important things and let everything else go and went to bed early at least knowing that I did things to help myself long-term but that I was still listening to myself. Balance! It's a thing!

(Also working on forgiving myself when I don't do that, but that's what I'm in therapy for, in part.)

3. Wednesday Reading time!

A month since my last post isn't so bad! I went to Disneyland at the tail end of an event and lucky egg'd while walking around in Downtown Disney, so I did a couple major evolutions. And then I leveled while I was there, and played in the gyms...really, I can't imagine I'll have so eventful a time by the end of the year as I did in the one week I was in SoCal.

Title: Gunpowder and Lead
Format: fic
Bands: MCR, MSI
Pairings: Gerard/Frank; Gerard/Frank/Lindsey
Rating: teen and up
Warnings: violence; character death; suicide (minor character, off-screen); addiction/addictive behaviors.
Summary:
Frank and Gerard made it through their first cattle drive together, but now Frank is gone and Gerard doesn’t know what to do. His gut tells him Frank’s disappearance has something to do with the preacher man, but he has nothing else to go on.

Turns out, Lindsey is looking for the preacher man too, but she won’t say why. Gerard has reasons enough to hate the man, but Lindsey has more—reasons that stretch back into her family, her childhood, and what brought her out west in the first place. She wants what he owes her—she wants revenge.

American Western, set in the 1880s.

Title: Empty With You
Format: Fic
Bands: My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy
Pairings: Frank Iero/Gerard Way, Mikey Way/Pete Wentz, Kristin Colby/Mikey Way, Patrick Stump/Pete Wentz
Size: 36,410 words
Rating: explicit
Warnings: Minor character death (off-screen), suicidal ideation, past attempted suicide, depression, drug use, alcohol use, addiction issues, angst, more angst, use of 'verse appropriate slurs.

Summary:
In a world where everyone has a soulmate, where do the outcasts fit in? Gerard and Frank are viewed as irreparably broken by the society they live in, shadows with no future, half-lives not worth living, and yet…somehow, there's something between them. Not a soul bond, but something else that feels real. Something they have no words for, something outside of what their society recognizes.

Something that just might be the death of them, or bring them back to life.

Title: But What About Love?
Format: fanmix
Bands: My Chemical Romance
Pairings:
Frank Iero/Gerard Way
Size: 16 songs
Rating: PG
Warnings: none
Summary:
I fell in love with the tumultuous aspect of Frank and Gerard's relationship in this fic. The back and forth between timelines was so jarring, it only added to the effect. I tried to capture that in this mix: their teenage young love that was so great a painting of them should be hanging in "The Louvre." But, also the biting anger that Frank is still holding onto, after them ending. Hopefully, I did justice to both of these characters, and their explosive romance. (Of course, with a dash of heartbreak.)

Title: How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful
Format: Fic
Bands: Fall Out Boy
Pairings: Joe Trohman / Patrick Stump, All / Recognised SOs
Size: c. 70k words
Rating: Teen audiences
Warnings: Grief, off-screen character 'death', discussion of mental health issues, discussion of the mistreatment of a minor.
Summary:
Joe didn't even want to take the scenic route home from Las Vegas, but Pete never listens, so they're in Death Valley when the ships pass overhead. That's the only reason they're not taken. They should have been. They could all have been at home with their loved ones, taken alongside them. But they weren't.

It quickly becomes apparent that the whole planet's population has been decimated. All population centres have been stripped of every human inhabitant - there are no bodies, no destruction aside from the fires that burn from kitchens left unattended and cars suddenly driverless in the streets - everyone is just gone.

So, they do the only thing they can think of - they go home.

Freedom!

Sort of!

Exams are now officially over. For at least 8 months. If he failed (that's not unlikely with one of them), he still doesn't need to start studying again until next June/July. We're celebrating by going to see Moana at a restored Art Deco cinema near us. Neither of us have seen it, so it's going to be a real treat.

Now that I don't have oodles of free time stretching in front of me any more, I need to get my head in order for fannish stuff over the next few months, so that I don't miss a deadline or over-estimate what needs doing. I'm feeling a bit swamped, but I think that's mostly an illusion due to So. Many. Plot. Bunnies.

14/15 October - Podfic Big Bang starts posting.
I'm mostly done for this, although I need to make audiobooks of my last fic.

~

November - NaNo
I've never actually managed to do anything consistently in November. It's my worst mental-health month of the year, thanks to my SAD. Also, I always felt pressure to write an original piece*, rather than fanfic. This year, I've decided to say "stuff it" and give it a go anyway. I'm playing around with the idea of a Daredevil/Defenders/Guardians of the Galaxy fusion piece, which is big enough for Nano as I'm having to world-build first. It hopefully won't be 50k, though! I'm going for 500 words a day ideally, and more to the point, something every day. I'll try to update here if anyone's interested.

18 December - Yuletide is due
I have my assignment, I have a shoulder to cry on (thanks, topaz_eyes!), but I have no plot ideas right now. I'm terrible without really clear, tight instructions. The more restrictions you put on a story, the easier I find it to write, which is why I love 'Five Things' fics, or ones that mess around with time. While I love the assignment, I'm flailing a bit at the moment to work out what to actually put down on paper. Welcome to Yuletide :)

~

Also 18 December - #ITPE is due
This one is the Informal Twitter Podfic Exchange, for which I think I'm actually sorted. I've got a couple of things recorded, then stumbled across the PERFECT story for my recipient, so I want to get that down as well. I probably won't edit them until after November, but I like to have the actual recording done early.

~

Then on top of that, I've got 3 monster Podfics that I want to record so very, very much. But they are 3.5, 4.5 and 5.5 hours, so. That's going to take a while. I also have a half-finished The Defenders tag fic that I so, so want to finish, and which I am totally and utterly stuck on. It's the danger of working out the ending for me. Once I know it, I struggle to write it (which is a note to make for NaNo)

For some years, I've kept a private post at the top of my journal, reminding me of WsIP, plot bunnies and Fest deadlines. Looks like it's time to update it!

~
*I only realised when talking to colleagues the other day, just how rare it is nowadays for me to have in-depth conversations with non-geeks, and also how much I take for granted that no matter what you like, people will just go "oh, cool, doesn't do it for me". I was deeply thrown by the mockery I got for liking a D&D podcast, or how surprised people were when I said I follow Formula 1. While the geek community is sometimes awful, I do take for granted the idea that you're allowed to be enthusiastic about things without being laughed at for it. I chose not to mention the fanfic because. Well. Obvious reasons :/

Summary:
After meeting the wrong end of a blade, Gerard wakes up in a mysterious realm called the Under. He's surrounded by demons who all seem to think he's something special, but none of them will answer his questions. They reveal nothing except the fact that he died too soon. The only person willing to help is Frank, his self-appointed guide, who swears he can bring Gerard home. He escorts Gerard across the Under, and together they confront enemies, unexpected feelings, and secrets of the darkest kind.

In the end, all it takes is one misplaced soul to bring worlds crashing down.

Me before my vacation: I'll have so much time in the car to read! I'm so excited. Even if I don't read, I can watch a lot of TV. And even if nothing happens on the road, I can do some reading in line for rides.

Me on the road: [sleeps a lot because of medication, has to deal with screaming kids when awake]

Me at the park: [almost never alone, absolutely exhausted when I am]

Me after vacation: ...oh well.

I did still make some progress on books in the last couple weeks, though.

Books. Talk of fat shaming, rape. )

In other news, I'm going to try to put up a Pokemon Go post in the next couple days. I did a lot of playing on the trip, and it was a delight!
