Welp. Livejournal finally went too far. Guess this is where I'll be if I ever feel like journaling again.

So I decided to make a reclist of Adam/Tommy fic, because there’s a lot of it, and I know how hard it can be to find the good stuff when you’re new to a fandom. A couple notes before I start:

- I had to limit myself to a few stories for each author, but I strongly recommend checking out the rest of their works as well!
- I did not list content notes or warnings here. Please make sure to pay attention to them after clicking a link.
- Most of these are my personal favorites, and obviously those are just due to personal preference. However, there are also one or two fics on the list that I actually haven’t read (yet!) but felt compelled to include due to how well-known they are within the fandom.
- There’s no real order here. If it’s on the list, I recommend it!
- There are so many more great stories than what I could include here. Please, if you have a favorite that isn’t listed, link it in the comments!

On to the fic! )

There's been a bandom voice meme going around, and it was GREAT fun to hear everyone's voices, so I thought I'd make a version for Adam fandom! Adapted from the meme originally by [ profile] sneaky_sena.

Think of this as a template. If you want to skip a question, go ahead. If you want to add your own questions or just ramble on about Adam or fanfiction, feel free! Just do a podcast or a voice post or whatever you can to get your voice on the internets for all of us to hear.

1. What's your username and is there a story behind it?
2. Where are you from and where do you live now?
3. Besides Adam, who are some of your favorite musical artists?
4. Have you been in any other fandoms besides Adam? Which ones?
5. How long have you been an Adam fan, and how did you first hear about him?
6. Have you seen Adam in concert? Any particular favorite concert experiences?
7. What's your favorite song off of For Your Entertainment and why?
8. Are you a fan of any of Adam's many talented friends and colleagues ? If so, who?
9. What are your favorite genres of fanfic? (angst, fluff, porn, crack, AU, etc...)
10. Do you have an OTP? What is it, and why do you love it?
11. What story and/or pairing do you wish someone would write?
12. What fanfic would you recommend to everyone? Tell us about your favorite stories!
13. Tell us about what you're hoping to see during the Trespassing album cycle.
14. And of course, the eternal debate: how do you like Adam's hair best? Up? Down? Shaved sides? Tinted tips? FACIAL HAIR? Feel free to link a picture in your post!

The Questions:

10. Are you working on something for bandom right now? Tell us a little bit about it.
11. You've got fic open somewhere on your computer right now, don't lie. So go to one of your open tabs or word documents or whatever, and read us a couple of lines.
12. Say these words: Iero, haberdashery, LOLcat, flist, dirigible, halcyon, nemesis, ephemeral, languorous

Throwing these here so I can close all the tabs - [ profile] glam_kink prompts I like and might fill. Not that I'll make it to all of them, of course!

WIP MEME: post a little bit of each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations.

Those are the ones I have post-worthy bits for. I can't believe how many ideas are still just in my head, or written out only in a basic one-sentence summary.

I keep making posts about the things that are annoying me and then making them private because I sound like such a horrible bitch. I'M JUST REALLY ANNOYED WITH THE WORLD RIGHT NOW, OK?

^^would be better as a tweet, but I'm still scorning Twitter, as it's one of the things annoying me

ETA: It's so weird and difficult not being on Twitter. I didn't realize how addicted I was until I tried to stop. I keep refreshing Gmail and LJ and Tumblr over and over and over to try to make up for it, haha.

On the other hand, I get the distinct sense that I've already saved myself having to witness unpleasantness. For which I say, good call, self.

A glimpse into my brain, when presented with time to write:


- Oh wait, but I should really be working on that gift fic that's two weeks overdue...

- And then there's charity fic that was supposed to be finished in February...

- Maybe I'll just work on timestamps - those will be short and easy...

- Or I could use this time to start that longfic I need to get going on...

- *and way, way in the back, original fic waves in the distance, hoping for attention*


Messing around on the internet until I pass out. Zero writing.

I can't believe how little I post to this journal these days! Fic journal + twitter + tumblr basically killed the need for a personal journal, I guess. But I've had this journal for too long to get rid of it, so here we go, a post.

Stealing from basically my entire flist, lol:

Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.
Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.
Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot sometimes.
Day Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever).
Day Seven: Four turn offs.
Day Eight: Three turn ons.
Day Nine: Two images that describe your life right now, and why.
Day Ten: One confession.

1. Sometimes I feel like we don't connect like we used to, and it makes me scared that we're running out of things to say.
2. I'm done with you.
3. Just because I don't call doesn't mean I don't love you.
4. I love being your friend - you make me smile and laugh every single day.
5. I wish you hadn't fallen out of my life. It was both our faults.
6. You'll never know how grateful I am.
7. I admire you more than you know. You hold my heart.
8. I'm jealous of how you managed to escape. I wish I could have gone with you.
9. There's only so long I can feel sorry for you when you bring it all on yourself.
10. You intrigue and intimidate me in equal measures.

For anyone who hasn't seen these! Jack and Ianto's romance in brief (pretty sure they're in the order they aired):

And two bonus kisses!

Aside from Jack/Ianto, the sweetest moment of the show:

And the hottest (imo):

Seems to be a pattern, huh? :D

This new story is possessing my mind like nothing has since my LBB, back in the days when I was first starting to think about it. I love this feeling. It's like there are whole universes spinning in my head, rooted in the detritus of my life and branching out into big glorious ideas that I will never properly be able translate to the page, not in the perfect pristine way they appear in my head.

The story has a soundtrack and everything. I'm listening to the songs now, and god, it just makes me feel alive. These are the times, rare and precious, when I really do feel like this is what I was meant to be doing, when there's fire in my blood and I am actually unable to do anything but serve the story.

sulwen: (doctor)
Been wanting to do this for a while, and finally got a day off to put it together. Be warned: I have a strong and possibly childish love for blatant sexual innuendo. That's what got a lot of these songs here. Also, this might be a Ke$ha playlist in disguise. Oops.

There are a few notable artists that I've left out of the list simply because when I listen to them, I listen to the whole album. Gaga is the main one.

They're in alphabetical order by first name at the moment, because I will probably mix the order six thousand times before I actually find something I like enough to stick with.

So there we are. Guilty pleasures. :)

[Poll #1716844]

Thanks for voting, guys! Closing it now before I end up with another tie. It's interesting to gauge levels of interest in different things!

Hopefully I'll have something to post soon. <3

I spent part of this morning compiling a reading list.

My husband and I own a lot of books. A LOT. We've spent every Christmas since we've been together asking for bookstore gift cards. This has resulted in more books that I can possibly keep up with, especially considering how much of my reading has actually been fanfiction over the past two or three years. It's time to work through some of the list.

These are all books we own that I have not read and want to read. They are in no particular order.

Read more... )

It looks incredibly daunting, to see it like I need to spend less time online, clearly! I'm a fast reader, but that doesn't matter if I can't tear myself away from my laptop.

Anyone read any of these? Got comments? Recs? Warnings? I'd be curious to hear!
