has been reposting her drabble from her "100 Drabbles" set. Among them was the drabble she did for the crack!fic prompt. Which reminded me of the crack!fic challenge. And how funny some of them were,
and LONG. I think Whore in a Hoody
had to have set some sort of drabble series record. And not just in QaF fandom, but in like all of fandom.
The funniest and most brilliant of them? Hands down had to be Justin is a Rap Star by queerasfruit
. If you haven't read it before, you really must. If you have, go read it again!
ETA: I'd COMPLETELY forgotten that I made Whore in a Hoody icons. :D
Well, okay a few vids tie for this award IMO. But this is definitely in my top 3 favorite vids of all time. And somehow, unbelievably, it doesn't seem to have ever been rec'd on IJ. WTF? AMAZING SONG/Lyrics and AMAZING VID
So you can see the vid, in really bad quality on youtube uploaded by someone who didn't make it. OR you can go to the maker's webpage, scroll down, and download Affirmation. I HIGHLY recommend this option. Because the quality will be SO MUCH BETTER. And it is definitely worth it to have it saved for all of eternity on your computer.Webpage for higher quality download( Lyrics )
PS. Makes me cry every single fucking time.
Time for my Thanksgiving Holiday Tradition!
I'm not sure if anyone is even paying attention here these days, but if you are, share some recs!
The Rec-A-Thon is officially open.
QAF Past QAF Fic, Vids, or Graphics posts from years gone by. (Created in Pre-2011)
QAF Present QAF Fic, Vids, or Graphics posts from the last year. (Created between December 2010 and the present day)
Other Fandoms Fic from other fandoms you don't want your QaF friends to be missing out on.
QaF History Any QaF related post/discussion that you think is worthy of revisiting by old fans, or sharing with new ones. A marathon that was particularly inspiriing, a picspam that was hilarious, fic that can't be believed (see serialkiller!mermaid!brian). You get the idea.
You can share as many or as few as you like.
You do not have to do one from each category.
You have until Friday at 1pm EST.
Post them in your own journal, and then comment here with a link so that I don't miss out and can make a master list for everyone.
Your recs can come from anywhere. They do not have to have been posted on IJ. DW, LJ, AO3, personal websites, wherever. All are fine as long as they are not locked posts.
I've been on a fic reading kick since returning from Xiefest.
Tonight I'm taking Framed
to bed with me. It was one of the many fics discussed on my ride home with outlander
. And I was reminded of it when I was making my reservation to pick up
my new iphone.
I've also decided that I like season 5 Brian's hair. Yes. There, I've said it. It has grown on me. But I seem to have a lack of Brian s5 solo pictures. What up with that?
So I'm on a mission. Show me your best Brian season 5 icons. Just Brian. No text. No Justin. I have plenty of those already.
ETA: I just snagged the one on my post. It is by pfodge
. It doesn't fit my rules, but it seems appropriate. :D
Yesterday I finished "After the Smoke Clears" by Allie Q.
Who no longer seems to exist. So I have no link, sorry.
I enjoyed it.
If anyone has a link, comment please so I can add it to this post.
I started trying to read "After the End" by bloodyrose, but it wasn't working for me. Which is a bummer since I don't think I'd read it before, so I was all, YAY! new fic. But oh wells.
So now I've started reading "Everything At Once
" by Plumsuede. zomg. I'd forgotten how much i love this fic and her writing. I had also thought in recent months that I no longer enjoyed porn. then i read some of the porny bits in this fic and realized, maybe i just only now enjoy really really good porn.
According to my iphone, the fic is 622 pages long. although, very short pages, still, i'm only on page 15 right now, so this one should tide me over for the rest of the week at work.
ION: Are you ready for some Action? It's been a long time. Too long. Watch for more info later in the week.
ETA: Link to After the Smoke Clears by allie q.
Rec-a-thon is now open.
Rec your favorite QaF fics, Vids, Graphics and Meta on your own journals, then stop by here with a comment to let me know!
You have until Midnight November 26th to join the fun.
Let's spread the QaF love!
And if you wish, throw in fic in a different fandom by a qaf author for good measure.
Sorry to post early, but tomorrow will be a busy one for me and I didn't want to forget. Also, I haven't received any advance recs, so hopefully you are still all planning your own recs. I'll be super sad if no one joins me in spreading the love.Here are the recs from 2008 if you wish to avoid repeats
And And here are the rec'ing recommendations, hee, which don't need to be followed strictly, but it would be cool if you did!
Rec-A-Thon Recommendations:Posting Your Recs:
1. Post your recs in your own journals on November 25th or 26th. 3 rec max!
2. Please put a link to the rec in your post.
3. On the 25th I will put a post on which to comment with a link to your posts so I know where to find them all for the Master Rec List.
4. Please do include MajorCharacter!death warnings, and brief statements about why you are rec'ing. But please do not include lengthy explanations.
5. If you cannot post on those days, send me an email, ny . defined @ gmail. com (no spaces) with your rec by the 24th, and I will post it for you!What to Rec:
1. Short fics or One-shots only. No multi-chapter fic please.
2. If you are rec'ing multiple fics, they MUST be written by different authors.
3. They must also be different genres OR written in different years. So you could do a hurt/comfort from 2008 and 2010, or a death!fic and a pwp from 2008, but you can't do 2 pwps both from 2008.
4. No Repeats! Check out Rec-a-thon 2008
and avoid repeating what is already on there! We are looking for variety and also maybe some authors or fics we haven't read before, not necessarily just our absolute favorites.
Final Note: I don't want to discourage people from throwing in a rec to a vid, or graphics post or meta, or even a non-qaf fic by a qaf author, but I want to keep this primarily about qaf fics. So throw in an extra if you like, but don't forget the qaf fic rec!
I'm home sick. And I know of at least one other fangirl who is too.
And when you are home sick, and watched as much HGTV as you can stand, there is only one other really good way to keep yourself occupied-sharing your misery with brian and justin. I'm in need of some hurt/comfort fic I think. But not just H/C, specifically fic where someone is sick.
I'm going to start off with some of the best "i've got a cold" fics on the planet The Kleenex!fic Trilogy
. Start with the one on the bottom and work your way up!
And when you are done, if you have H/C-sick fic rec of your own, drop a link off on this post, kthx. :D
