Lessons learned from rock festivals? I don't care how hot it is, it's still physically impossible for me to stay grumpy while Sonic Youth is playing. Even if it's not one of their best nights.

Also: strapless bras are great in theory, but there must be some art to wearing them that I have never mastered, because I've never found one that doesn't migrate towards my waist, dragging my boobs down with it and making them look saggy when they aren't, and isn't that the very opposite of what a bra is supposed to do?

Appropos of nothing, from "Old Possum's Book of IMpractical Cats": I'm in love with these guys. Little cuddly kits are great but I want a Viking lynx!

I've written three more birthday drabbles, all of a crossovery flavo[u]r.

For [livejournal.com profile] vivien529: A GO/HP drabble (Minerva thinks that angel's got a little Slytherin in him!)

For [livejournal.com profile] signifier (who I get to see in August!): J.K. Rowling via J.L. Borges - Snape and the Aleph (also owes a conceptual debt to "The Three Versions of Judas")

For [livejournal.com profile] blueeyedtigress (who I get to see tomorrow!): GO/LOTR - Aziraphale and Crowley having a cuppa with Frodo

Productive? I think so.

...and I kinda feel it too, because that's how tired I am. I'm waayyy behind on the drabbling, but that's because of the last 48 hours, I've been at home and awake for about maybe 5 of them. Yes, my friends have been feasting and feting (and other f'things) me pretty splendidly, including an 8-hour marathon of a BBQ in a beautiful yard in Humboldt Park yesterday. I woke up at 2 PM today with a huge grin on my face, feeling loved.


And someone anonymously bought me two months of paid LJ time! *squee* Thank you thank you thank you!


So here's the first five b-day drabbles, anyway. I WILL do them all if it takes me to next b-day. (And I'm doing them in the order the ideas hit me, not the order received, sorry!)

For [livejournal.com profile] musesfool: GO - Something with the Them and a birthday party

For [livejournal.com profile] kkpixie: TDS - happy, fuzzy Stewart/Colbert

For [livejournal.com profile] celandineb: GO - Aziraphale/Crowley, bananas

For [livejournal.com profile] teh_jenna: HP/US Politics - something involving Snape and George Bush

For [livejournal.com profile] use_theforce_em: TDS/LOTR - members of the Fellowship on the Daily Show

OK, more to come in days to come - enjoy!

Gyah, PMS and money troubles on top of everything. My usually hard-and-prickly therapist took one look and went all Jewish-mother on me, all but forcing me to eat cookies.

But I can still drabble! (x-posted from [livejournal.com profile] go100, for the "Holiday Spirit" challenge.)

Title: Slaybells
Words: 100
Rating: v.mild PG for stealth slash suggestions
Notes: Discworld x-over of sorts.


“Oh dear, this is a bad idea…”

WHY? I’VE DONE IT BEFORE.

“Hogswatch is different, Azrael…the round Earth isn’t nearly so…flexible with space-time, and…your reindeer are terrified, and…”

YOU ARE A ROD IN THE QUICKSAND, AZIRAPHALE.

“I believe ‘stick in the mud’ is the idiom here. And who’s doing your…not the boy!”

IT BROADENS HIS HORIZONS. BESIDES, I HAVE PRESENTS FOR YOU.

Tea from the bottom of Boston Harbour. A library card from Alexandria. A highly uncensored Renaissance painting.

“Dear Lord, is that—?“

HE POSED IN FLORENCE, YES.

“Just this once, then. I didn’t see you.”

HO HO HO.

***

Safe journeys to everyone travelling the next few days!

That my brain is cracking. And rebelling. Little bits of unproductivity keep sneaking out through the work, yay.

This was written for the [livejournal.com profile] go100 "Help" challenge. I'll post it there as soon as I can figure out how to do the spoiler warnings right.

See, one of my all-time favorite movies has a remake imminent that I am not looking forward to...

The Consultant
Words: 100
Rating: PG for suggestion of pretty icky violence
Characters: Crowley and Aziraphale
Summary: It's a crossover. And no, it didn't have to happen this way...

It's a human-sacrifice murder mystery, with martyrdom and apples )

In other news, that Spike Lee documentary on Katrina that's starting tonight on HBO looks like it's going to be really excellent and really hard to watch. Will have to get someone to tape the rest of it for me tomorrow.

For me, and anyone who wants 'em.

Drabble (cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] go100, for the "Show" challenge)

Title: The Big Premiere
Words: 100
Rating: G, I'm afraid
Summary: 19th century. Crowley and Aziraphale go to the opera.
Author's note: My experience with opera is very limited, but I have seen this one. And...crossover alert! "Celebrity" cameo.

Everybody's a critic. )

If that doesn't do it for ya, have a picture of Senator Obama trying to do something athletic in very nicely-fitting jeans.

He's a lefty! )

That was swiped from this image thread at Daily Kos that made my eyes water from laughing.

OK, now back to work.

I'm pretty overwhelmed by the response "Breathless Mouths May Summon" has gotten; only a few people know this, but as of last week I was all a-wibble with anxiety about it not being good enough. (I only do this with things that really, really matter to me)...especially with a collaborator involved; being worthy of her work is a new level of responsibility. We seem to have made a lot of people happy.

If you're wondering why it was posted only to [livejournal.com profile] lower_tadfield and not here, it's because the person who physically does the posting (me, in this case) gets all the email notifications, and q_w shouldn't have to keep checking both here AND there to see what folks were saying. Best to keep it all centralized.

Now, just because that story took up my whole psyche, it doesn't mean that's all I've been doing.

Remember that crackfic meme that was going around a couple weeks ago, where you take characters whose pictures appear in your icons and alphabetize them to generate pairings? I didn't do it for my own icons, but I did leave a couple drive-by crackfics in other people's comments.

For [livejournal.com profile] violet_quill I actually sort of used TWO of her pairings. The first is a het pairing, of a Real Person and a Toon. The second is....well, I'm just glad I don't actually believe in Hell.

PG, I think. Be warned - I did not spend more than half an hour on either of these.

She was a tall dame. I am not a tall man. )

The second was for [livejournal.com profile] xylodemon, who wound up with Crowley/Dementor. Well, this is more a story about Crowley and a Dementor. Just a little bit of virgule, ew. This one I think owes a spiritual debt to [livejournal.com profile] hjbender's hilarious "Revenge of the Houseplants" and I know it owes a very concrete material one to [livejournal.com profile] mamushi's genius illustrated treatise on Dementor reproduction, from which I used a premise. Also PG-ish.

He couldn't even say why. He just didn't like it. )

We all are She's still waiting for that Eminem/Gandalf, by the way.
