1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it’s over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.

I’m doing this meme again, because I really enjoyed it the first time and I think I got some neat drabbles out of it. I’m not planning to do any specific pairing or fandom, but we’ll see what happens. These are totally unedited for everything except typos, so expect them to be a bit rougher than my usual work.

ALSO: I’m not really keeping to the time limit. I just want to be writing, and if I’ve got a good thing going, I’m not going to stop myself.

ALSO: I only did five, because it was late and I needed sleep.

Author’s notes for all the pieces follow at the end.

WARNINGS: (Lightly) implied incest, (lightly) implied underage, absolutely no pr0n, unedited writing, a bad joke, wordiness, AU, (non-explicit) prostitution, crazy angel theories that even I don’t understand, implied death, songs from musicals, and a mention of Glenn Beck.

Oh my god, did you guys just see Jon absolutely take it to Jim Cramer? It was heart-stoppingly brilliant.

I've seen Jon do this before, pretend like it's all going to be a big joke and then go totally balls-to-the-wall serious with it. I respect the man to no end for having the courage to do that.

I actually felt a tiny bit bad for Cramer. He clearly wasn't expecting it, so he pretty much just took his punches and was a good sport about the whole thing.

Seriously. Go watch it. It is a thing of beauty.


Also: while we're speaking politics, may I just say how incredibly awesome I think the first fifty-some days of Obama's administration have been? That man gets shit done. I have never been so proud of this country in my life. YAY.

So I'm watching old episodes of The Daily Show on the Comedy Central website. And man, 1999 Jon Stewart is...rather pathetically adorable. I just want to hug him and say, it's ok, no one noticed you struggling through that laugh-free interview, I promise! It's amazing how much he's improved over the years. It's almost sad to love an ongoing TV show so much, because I'm going to be pretty crushed when it ends.

Also, the headlines in '99 seem awfully naive compared to today. I mean, all that uproar about the whole Monica Lewinsky thing? You watch it today, and it's nothing. It seems ridiculous after everything Bush put the country through. You know?

The best clip I've come across so far:

That Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert/Conan O'Brian storyline was seriously the best thing I've ever seen on TV. Ever.

*grins madly*

You know, I just can't help it. Mpreg freaks me out. I wish I liked it, because there are some great fic writers out there who do mpreg, but I just can't. It's too weird - even in fandoms where it can be explained, like Smallville (alien reproduction!) or Harry Potter (potion gone bad!).

ETA: For some serious hilarity about Superman and mpreg, click here:

Actually, I take it back. There is one way I can enjoy mpreg - when it's part of crackfic. I remember one Jon/Stephen fic in particular that was hilariously that's ok. But when people try to make it serious, it makes me shudder - and not in a good way.

On a side note, I stayed up until six AM last night watching Rafa lose his semifinal at the Australian Open to the unseeded Tsonga. I am in the process of ficcing away my disappointment and praying that Federer kicks the kid's ass in the final.

And winter sucks. Hardcore. Most of the time I don't mind Ohio, but I HATE Ohio in winter.

Ok, this quote is so not as funny out of the context, but I love it so I'm posting it here to save forever. Plus, it's like the smallest drabble ever - just from those three lines you get the whole fic. *is so in love with her RPS it's not even funny*

“What…how should we do this?” Stephen asks Anderson quietly. “Which one of us should kiss him?”

“It should be you. You’re his best friend. I think he’s more comfortable with the idea of kissing you,” Anderson rationalizes.

“Guys? I’m right here.”

Oh my god, I have become SUCH a Jon/Stephen fangirl! *loves them so* I've got to try writing them one of these days. I love slashing comedians because then the fics are funny AND hot! This, from a fic by zenified, made me just about fall out of my chair laughing.


They walked into the elevator, each leaning against opposite walls, and their eyes met.

“We need to talk, you know” Jon stated seriously.

“Yeah, I know,” Stephen mouthed as the elevator doors closed.


“Fuck talking,” Jon breathed, grabbing Stephen’s shirt as he pressed the ‘Emergency Stop’ button inside the elevator.
