Tell Us a Story That's By Candlelight

Waging a War and Losing the Fight

[sticky post]I last wrote on here 6 years ago. That's good.

Because no-one else is here now. LJ is dead. That's good, because now my archive can exist in peace with no danger of someone actually reading my garbage I want to kindly preserve somewhere besides a cloud drive, Tumblr, e-mail attachment, or a USB drive.

I continue to write things at the time of this post. I had some life events happen, like falling in love and getting engaged and sleeping around and getting involved with an old high school friend and then my best friend leaving me for that guy and them moving on with their lives and I move on with mine and me being hurled into a deep depression that I didn't write anything for a solid year almost and moving on with my own life and getting back into the groove but now I'm back to writing and getting back into the swing of things again.

I've primarily moved on to Tumblr for my blogging addictions, but LJ has an archive of my older writings that aren't posted elsewhere I needed to make sure I was still protecting and curating. I will eventually back them all up somewhere else, unless LJ won't let me edit my old posts and copy/paste my own writings... I have to remember how to use this site, but so it goes. I like that it's empty now. I enjoy having an empty auditorium. This is not sarcasm.

I suppose that makes me a bit of a hipster to post my entries to empty space on purpose, but so it is and so am I.

Some Idiots Learn To Look The Other Way

effingshisno

Title: Some Idiots Learn To Look The Other Way
Fandom/Series:  Some Idiots
Characters: Cade Somers (central), reflections on Walter Holiday
Pairing: Cade/Walt.
Summary: Cade reflects on the specific challenges of loving a mercenary...
Challenge/Theme: Timed writing exercise on October 25th, 2009 using Dr.Wicked's Write-or-Die to get a feel for my 2009 NaNo characters. 10 minutes.  There was a prompt but I don't remember what it was.
Length: 477 words.
Genre: General. Maybe considered Action.
Rating: PG-13 for violence.
Status: Complete.
Warning: Slash, violence, and shallow characterization.

Notes:
Once again, this story was written before my Some Idiots Have All The Luck. It's Cade-central, and I didn't know him very well. Also, when he thinks about his and Walt's first meeting, it actually doesn't match up with the actual manuscript; this story was written before the novel, and that means before the actual opening scene was written. So it goes.

Gotta look away, gotta look away, can't look backCollapse )

Some Idiots Make Too Many Pop Culture References

Fandom/Series: Some Idiots
Characters: Walt Holiday, Cade Somers

Challenge/Theme: Timed writing exercise on October 29th, 2009 using Dr.Wicked's Write-or-Die to get a feel for my 2009 NaNo characters. 25 minutes. I can't remember the prompt for it.
Length: 907 words.
Genre: General.
Rating: G. (Omg, G-rated Walter? IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD!)
Status: Complete.
Warning: Slash, bad jokes, and possible over-load of pop culture references.

Notes: The Cade and Walter featured in this story, while not as developed as their Some Idiots Have All The Luck counterparts are a lot more developed than as they appear in "Television, Television". They're still not fully-dimensional characters at this point.

I ain't a rocket surgeonCollapse )

Walter Holiday
effingshisno

Length: 1, 280 words.
Genre: Erotica/General/Humor. (Why is it that I can never write ONE frickin' genre?)
Rating: NC-17.
Status: Complete.
Warning: Slash, man-sex, and badly written characters because this was written before I got to know Cade and Walt better. Implied Het because of ex-girlfriend talk.

Notes: Walt and Cade in this fic are the same guys you've read about elsewhere, just not as developed at the time of this writing. In other words: I didn't really know who they were at the time of this writing, so they may seem OOC when compared to other Some Idiots writings. Also, the sex in this fic was written to be rushed, unsatifying, and humor ON PURPOSE. JUST SO YOU KNOW. I DO KNOW HOW TO WRITE SEX SCENES. So it goes.

It's guy love, between two guysCollapse )

Notes:
First time writing this pairing and for this community, and with a time limit of 15-minutes only to write and revise, I don't think it's very good. BUT. As part of the challenge, I must post a link back to my fic. So, here it is. Badly written, complete with strange sentence structure and clunky dialogue, as well as a little Armor WTF. PLEASE EXCUSE ME WHILE I GO INTO THE CORNER AND WEEP WRITERLY TEARS.

 

love wounds with heat, death with iceCollapse )
