I drabbled!


[info]not_yet_defined
I wrote fic!!!! Drabbles!!! What?? But don't get too excited. It is depressing. Only because the state of united states is fucking depressing. Given my mood of late, and my sudden newfound obsession with reading fic again, this was bound to happen.

What Happens Next



When the Sandy Hook school shooting happens Gus is 12, JR is 8. Melanie and Lindsay kiss their kids and hug them a little tighter. They don't say it out loud, but over the years they've often been glad they moved to Canada. This is one of those times.

In 2015 when marriage in the US is finally legal, they think about moving back. They love life in Canada. Gus is 15, moving at that age is tough. But they also love their Pittsburg family, and miss them dearly. They decide to wait a bit and see what happens next.

***

What happens next changes everything and nothing.

49 people die in a gay nightclub. Trump becomes President. And 17 high schoolers and their teachers are murdered by one kid with a gun.

Gus is a senior in high school. JR will be there next year. Melanie and Lindsay kiss their kids and hug them a little too tight. And they thank god every day that they live somewhere where they can send their kids to the movies, or the mall, or even just to school and be reasonably assured they will come back home at the end of the day.

What Happens Next

[info]qaf_drabbles
Umm. I'm just going to assume the old rules about how to post drabbles no longer apply. Plus, I just wrote my first self-serving fanfic in like 10 years. And I still got it when it comes to drabbling. Both are 100 words exactly! And no one is here anymore to read it anyway. I've been depressed a bit lately. The state of the world, at least in the US, is fucking depressing. And I've been reading a lot fanfic again. So this was bound to happen..

So, [personal profile] thistlechild got herself a Netflix account and added me to her profiles. That's pretty awesome, and I've already watched a few movies that were new to me.

Movies:

Warm Bodies (2013) - because Nicholas Hoult is cute, and having a zombie romance movie told from the POV of the zombie was something new and interesting to me. I liked it! It was funny and unusual, and I'm definitely going to watch it again. *g*

The Intern (2015)
- another cute movie that I really liked. Robert de Niro and Anne Hathaway had great chemistry, and I adored Robert's Ben. His calm, positive attitude is really something I need in my life.

Zootopia (2016) - had wanted to watch that one for a while now, and it didn't disappoint. I enjoyed it very much, and Judy and Nick make a great team (and a cute couple *g*).

I'm afraid I didn't get much further. Since Sunday night I've been fighting with fever, coughing, and pain everywhere. I went to the doctor and got my sick note and stuff, and have been sleeping most of the time. And that's what I'm going to continue doing once I've had my dinner.

The Best Laid Plans - Apparently I never posted this one to my journal.

Title: The Best Laid Plans
Gift Request (2011 exchange): Gen/Slice of life or PWP theme: alternative holiday celebration or decorations. I think this actually fills both requests to some degree! Thank you Orlith for saving my butt with a beta!

I last updated in January -- I had forgotten when and about what so I had to go check. It was only three weeks ago! Such is life.

Thanks to [info]enchanted_jae for the Valentine's card and [info]digthewriter for the Valentine's card and Drarry art!! ♥

Long post behind the cut, but it's actually all good/meh stuff and nothing with drama or anxiety or upsetting things.

And that's it. That's what's going on with me. How's the rest of you?

I spent four days in Hamburg visiting [personal profile] maerchen_mond, and we did pretty much nothing except eating a lot of junk food, drinking alcohol, talking late into the night, and watching so many

Movies:

Mission: Impossible III (2006) - because after we had watched MI:4, it turned out that [personal profile] maerchen_mond hadn't seen MI:3, so we had to catch up, right?
Knight and Day (2010) - Because it was available, and I think this movie is hilarious, and because we already were on a Tom Cruise streak.
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011) - We talked about Tom Cruise getting too old for action movies, and I mentioned that I loved this one, and that Jeremy Renner was really sexy in it, too. *g*
Cowboys & Aliens (2011) - I don't even remember how we decided on that one. Talking about some of the actors maybe. Still love the way the viewer gets thrown into things, and bruised and bloody Daniel Craig wearing chaps and a vest is definitely an incentive for me. *g*
Edge of Tomorrow (2014) - Yes, again. *g* [personal profile] maerchen_mond expressed interest, and I'm always up for this one. It also sparked ideas for a pen & paper roleplaying adventure which we might turn into something real for a weekend.
Jurassic World (2015) - because the trailer for JW: Fallen Kingdom is out and made me want to re-visit this world. I still love the movie a lot, mostly for Owen and the raptors. Hopefully Blue will survive Fallen Kingdom! And I'm back to reading Jurassic World fanfiction again. *g*

The movies were all re-watches for me (but new to her), and making it into a kinda Tom Cruise themed event just happened by accident. *g* We had a lot of fun, though.

We also watched the complete first season of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, which was a new thing for both of us (mostly, [personal profile] maerchen_mond had already started watching up to episode four), and which we both loved a lot! I know I read the book(s) about twenty years ago, but I didn't remember anything apart from the name. *g*

Also. Naming my user pics by episode was a bad plan for 10 years in the future when I no longer remember things by episode....

The 100


[info]not_yet_defined
This seems like the perfect place to come speak into the void and bad mouth another fandom.

The 100. OH MY GOD. Those bitches be crazy. I found a Niylah/Clarke fic, and was very excited, because I find them interesting. And then I read the comments on the fic from clexa shippers. Holy shit. Were we like that? I'm pretty sure I never called anyone who wrote brian/michael a fat pig. Good god. And Niylah/Clarke is at least canon.

My wife is a huge The 100 fan and big time clexa shipper. Today, missing fandom, I tried to get into it. I couldn't. I love the The 100. I liked Clarke and Lexa. I do think it was some ignorant bullshit what they did with Lexa. But...Its done yo. Can't we move on at some point? Do we have to mourn her and them for all of eternity. I still want Clarke to find someone new, be happy, find love.

Would I have forgiven QaF if they had killed Justin? I don't know. I think so. I KNOW I still would have wanted good things for Brian ultimately. I would not have wanted him to spend the rest of his life miserable and in mourning.

Anyway...

Yes. Cover your teeth.

That was QaF, right?

Things change and stay the same.


[info]not_yet_defined
Its been over a year. I popped on to find my journal was unreadable because the old customizations were no longer supported. Sadness to say goodbye to how my journal had looked for over a decade.

I don't know how to customize anymore. So I chose a random format. It isn't the same. But then, neither am I.

If anyone I used to know (or still know) reads this, I hope you are well. I hope you are happy. I hope life is good.

I still think of Brian and Justin and QaF. I still occasionally watch an episode. And I still, unbelievably, make up stories about them in my head. It is my go to when I'm very bored or driving in my car or trying to fall asleep. They are still my home base. My fictional place of happiness. My OTP. Even after all this time.

If you are curious about me. I AM GOOD. I have a good life. I have a great wife. I love my job (usually). And we travel a lot. I cannot complain. And these days my name here is not so accurate. The definition doesn't change daily. I am settled. I am somewhat defined. And I am happy with that.

Be well.

My Feed! lol.

[info]nyd_lj
creating a feed feels a little pretentious to me. don't ask me why, but it does. Like why would anyone care enough about what i'm posting to make this necessary? However, a few friends now have asked for it. So i'm caving to pressure. all you have to do is click this link and voila, a feed of my IJ in summary form will show up on your LJ flist. Now if only i could get some of the people at LJ to do the same.


Ny's RSS Feed, Click to Friend Me


if any of you over here ever decide to be so kind as to create feeds, let me know and i will add them. it would be nice. it would rock actually. you will totally get good karma points.

take care!

and thanks to xie_xie_xie for showing me how to do this!
