☆ My [livejournal.com profile] i_reversebang fic is with the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] lamboyster for beta'ing....only about a month after when I had hoped to have done this by. Oh well...still technically on-time because my date is the 19th. Woot.

☆ I finished No to Your Key of Rust last week....so I started another TSN/RPF WiP. I know. I should have finished the other WiP before I started another....but this prompt was seriously irresistible. Long story short, I am writing a giant fic in which Andrew Garfield is a cat magically made human who loves Jesse Eisenberg who has a super crush on the new marketing guy at work, Justin Timberlake. I have きみはペット in the back of my mind alllll the time, to be completely honest. And that show--not the manga, the liveaction TV show--is, IMHO, the best TV show of all time. So. For romance-novel-meets-JDrama-meets-TSN, hop on over.

Only 1 part so far. :( But already around 4k. :)

I always really enjoy it when some fic subtly changes something fanon has started to accept without question. In this one, [livejournal.com profile] aqualined plays with the connections between the four central people a little, allowing Wardo to have a pre-existing (and, so far, thoroughly valid and important) friendship with Chris that is entirely different from the friendship with Mark. I didn't even realize I had them grouped together like I did--like so many fics so convincingly have done already--until this fic tried something different on for size. ALSO. It's brilliant and charming and lovely and includes Wardo cuddling a tiger baby. Just go read it. It makes sense, I swear.

hit the books by anonymous


Is anyone unaware of my literary nerd-dom? No? So it should come as no surprise that a fic that simultaneously romanticizes university libraries AND crackles with wit and vivacity should float my boat, right? ALSO, GUYS. This anonymous is worried about getting a reputation for traversing different fandoms and making them all into romances between reference librarians and professors. This makes me want to start a petition for such an effort, by this particular lovely anon. Can I petition that anon does that? Could s/he hit every fandom of ever and then, I dunno, start another loop?

Summary: Mark doesn't react well when he finds out the whole staff have been nursing a crush on Eduardo.
Notes: Isn't it odd how some fandoms tend towards the mammoth, months-in-the-making fic (I'm looking at you, TSN) and some (Inception springs to mind) tend towards ten times the quantity and a fraction of the length? I love all the lengths of fic, obviously, because they're all brilliant. But I realized--since I was in the middle of No to Your Key of Rust and two other massive WIPs--that I hadn't written all that many short-n-sweet fic for this fandom. So I pumped this one out overnight, just to see how it fit.

Stop voting for Wardo. Stop doing it right now. And stop the crushes. No one is allowed--I mean no one is ever allowed to have the slightest romantic inclination towards Eduardo Saverin or I will make his or her life a living hell. I can do it. )

OK, so apparently the TSN fandom is gonna continue to pump out the wonderful and wondrous WIPs for a bit longer. And by "a bit longer," I mean "the foreseeable future." There are so many fantastic WIPs is my point. It's, like, impossible to not join in.

♥ Have a couple snippets that I'm working on:
WIP the first )

....and the other one....
WIP the second )

♥ And, vastly more importantly, here are a couple by other people you should watch:

And everything nice by anonymous.
Up to 13b and the fastest shot in the west updater on the interwebs!

Oh, gosh, ya'll. This fic. This fic. The feelings I have for this fic! I feel like I need to start spouting sonnets, a la Elizabeth Barrett Browning, to properly express my love for this biznas. So Mark has a daughter, right, who is named Jess--I like to imagine her as a girl!child version of Jesse Eisenberg in my free time--and Andrew is hired as the manny. This fic will make iron-clad ovaries explode, I'm not even playing. Scrooge would have suffered from Fatal Ovaries Explosion, is what I'm telling you. There is no misanthrope so misanthropic to resist this goodness.

Come out of the shade by anonymous
Up to 7c!

Jesse is a playwright and Andrew is playing his neurotic mostly-autobiographical character. If that doesn't make you run--and, yes, I know that no one actually runs from one URL to another, it's all in the fingertips, right, but I stand by my metaphor to the death--to read it, I have more temptations to strew your path withal. This fic is gloriously well written. It has these layers of subtlety to both Andrew and Jesse's characters and keeps both characters in these complex systems of depth without sacrificing the interaction between them. Oh, and did I mention Justin Timbalone is the director of the play??

sweet on you by [livejournal.com profile] moogle62

Why have you not read this yet? Stop reading me, go read that! Eduardo runs/owns a bakery and Mark likes his coffee and the way he sings to himself in the morning while he bakes. Dustin is funnier than I have ever seen Dustin before--no, seriously, you thought you had laughed before but we were both wrong, you will laugh till you die--and Chris and I DON'T EVEN KNOW. I have run out of words. I would have to show you a slide-show of Happy Things to accurately depict this fic. It is made of unicorns and rainbows.

♥ ALSO. I am about halfway through with my [livejournal.com profile] i_reversebang fic. So that's to come.

Title: No to Your Key of Rust

Word Count: 6,092
Summary: TSN + Star Trek AU. Eight years ago, Eduardo was captain of the USS Palo Alto and Mark was his second-in-command. Between then and now, Mark got Eduardo removed from duty and led the Palo Alto to fame and fortune; Eduardo ended up teaching Ethics at Starfleet. Mark shows up in his classroom one day and it might just be time to bury the hatchet.
Notes: I considered not even posting this. I don't know what this business is. I tried to stay anonymous while I was writing it on the [livejournal.com profile] tsn_kinkmeme, but I am apparently incapable of remembering things like pressing the "anonymous" button every time and whatnot. (I'm doing much better with the other two WIPs I have going there.) So don't judge me too harshly by this.

I was going to give this a whole adventurous side-plot about Eduardo having to take over the Palo Alto for some plot-heavy reason and then realize that he didn't actually want to be a captain anyway and then more plot for more plottiness...and then I wrote a Super Fluffy epilogue instead. So. There you go. But I ended up coming up with VERY intricate and plotty backstory for this fic, which is something I don't usually do. Go figure.

Oh, and the title comes from the song "How I Could Just Kill A Man."

Exploration is a series of calculated risks )

Is there anyone who would be willing to beta my [livejournal.com profile] i_revsersebang fic? I hope to be mostly done with it sometime this weekend. I could give you something in return...I don't know what..a ficlet? Something. Point is, I would owe you.

Now that the begging is out of the way, let's talk about the fics. I don't know what is UP with the TSN fandom, but people be cranking out these MASSIVE WIPs. I mean. These things are GLORIOUS. I have never even had a "WIP" tag on my delicious and now it is chockablock with things I check dozens of times every single day.

kiss by the book by anon.
Up to 8 parts and counting.

This fic has it all. It has celebrity guest appearances by everyone lovely who can even tangentially be connected to the cast of TSN. And--far more importantly--it has the world's supply of happiness and warmfuzzies under lock and key at the mo'. "What's the plot, B?" you ask. Legit question. This whole awesome epic of adorbs started with this simple prompt: College, AU fic. Andrew meets dorky Jesse in the library, and is instantly smitten. Jesse is socially awkward and can barely manage talking with persistent Andrew ... so they find another way to communicate? Jesse has to have glasses. SO SIMPLE. And yet this fic is all that is good and true and magical. You have to read it to believe it.

Bashert, Baby by [livejournal.com profile] raquel_el_pillo.
Only 2 parts so far. Not updated all that often. :(

Andrew is Jesse's new bodyguard. WHAT. I LOVE CLICHES. And this one is done so very well. I'm shocked more people aren't making a to-do over this fic, actually. It looks so very promising. And the entire first part is basically about how awkwardly Jesse orders coffee and, yeah, that's wonderful for my soul.

Fortune and men's eyes by anon.
5 parts and counting!

Eduardo is actually the heir to the throne of Brazil. Mark doesn't know because he is just that much of a shut-in. He invades Eduardo's space when he's in desperate need of a laptop and Eduardo's is in the cafe with him--nevermind. I can't put words to this wonderfuliciousness. Can I just say--I saw the prompt and was like, Nah, man. That shit's too Disney. Then I read it anyway because I am post-prelims and have some time to kill....and this thing has eaten my soul. I LOVE it. I love it so much. I love it to a hyperbolic degree.

Unexpected Relations by anon.
6 parts and counting!

So...ummm...I don't usually go in for this sort of thing but see the post-prelims reasoning above and you'll get why I opened this after it popped up in my delicious network a couple of times. The premise is this: Mark and Eduardo's single parents start dating and eventually get married. The boys are lovely in this--they're basically heartbreaking in very different, very subtle ways. It's looking like things might finally be getting better for them, though! Go, boys, go!


A couple of points that make this an AWESOME INTERVIEW:
♥ He answers the question "what are you wearing?" with "well, I'm at home in boxers now...but I will be something darker [at the Oscars]."
♥ He tells a story about making a facebook page in Peter Segel's name. WHY DID HE DO THAT, THAT LOVEABLE FUZZBUNNY OF ADORBSNESS.

Summary: Andrew tries to talk to Jesse's cats in their own language.
Notes: This was written for the [livejournal.com profile] tsn_kinkmeme for this prompt: let's speak in meows. maybe you'll understand me better in cat language. There was already a superawesomesauce fill by the ever-glorious [livejournal.com profile] thisissirius (hers had Andrew turning into a cat, though, so I don't think I stepped on any toes by writing this vastly different minifill) which YOU SHOULD READ. Also, in the news: I GUESS I'M WRITING TSN RPF NOW. (I have two other fics in the works at the kinkmeme, one a Mark/Eduardo Star Trek!AU and the other...more secret. I've been doing it anonymously.) Last thing: the title comes from an Oscar Wilde quote.

It felt absurd--utterly, completely absurd--but he meowed at her. The tabby dropped the end of his scarf and looked up happily. Coppola wound himself around one of Andrew's ankles. )

So, yeah, I was bumming around this afternoon/evening--I have an absurdly early schedule on Mondays and have habitually bad sleeping practices so I am good for absolutely nothing post 5 PM on Mondays--and I was reminded of that trend a couple months back of genderswapping casts. Do you guys know what I'm talking about? This one for Inception was the one in particular that I ran into again.

And then I had my absurd thought of the day---or, more accurately, maxed out my "absurd thought" quota for the day--because my honest-to-god first thought was: Huh. Wonder if that would work on The Social Network.

I try to remember there are actual people who are not the movie actual people--and, honestly, I sort of have grown to weirdly love RL!Mark Zuckerberg since the film came out--but DUDES. Would this not be a fun exercise?

I'll go back to my corner now.
