Still alive!
So it's been over three years...clearly I wasn't lying about the infrequent use thing! My son is now almost two years old so life has become slightly less crazymaking. I have always loved reading fic online but haven't always been good about leaving feedback. So now I am going on a quest to tell all the amazing writers how much I have enjoyed their work and attempt to begin writing some of my own again. So if you got here just to see who said hi, sorry there isn't more going on yet but if you are an author then I just want to say how much your writing means to me! Loves!

Fandom: The Real Philosopher's Stone

I finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Saturday by 4:30 pm, and I have been processing since then.  Overall, I loved it.  I've read many reviews and I don't think I can do better, so mainly I feel like discussing fandom.  Currently, the fandom close to my heart is the new and relatively small fandom for “Blades of Glory,” and it has the most wonderful fans in the world.  So that is my little plug, come say hi to us at blades_of_glory.

It has taken a while to come to terms with the close of the source material for something that has been such a huge part of my life, in such a wonderful way.  Honestly, my relationship with the HP fandom has been that of donning an invisibility cloak and apparating into various journals and story sites, then reluctantly taking off the cloak and re-entering the 'real world.'  Which is a nice way of saying I am a lurker, and I haven't contributed any fic of my own...but my life has been much happier for reading it.  I don't know anyone in my real life that appreciates fandom, or reads fanfic...which is sad.  I feel a bit like a member of a secret society, wondering if the people I see on the street are really fanfic readers or writers as well.  I have rather slid out of the HP community, but with the final book out I feel a pull to re-enter and discover what amazing new worlds fanfic writers will create.

 

Really, I think I would have enjoyed DH more if I was strictly a fan of the books and not also of the amazing worlds stemming from them.  Unfortunately for JKR, too many amazing fic writers reached the end before she did and I’m already enthralled with several dozen alternate endings.  But it’s a mild disappointment, because I love fanfic too much to be upset with it preventing an unfettered enjoyment of cannon.

 

It seems that the HP fandom is split into camps at this point.  Some people are angry that their particular ships were invalidated by the book, to the point of cursing JKR.  Some are upset that the novel is so 'heteronormative,' and doesn't acknowledge alternate lifestyles.  Some are displeased with the way not all of the loose ends were tied up, and the Remus/Tonks issue that okay, really did seem to come out of nowhere and slip headlong into nothingness.  And other people are completely happy with how things turned out, but that seems to be in the minority.  And each camp makes such good points it’s difficult not to agree; I feel surrounded by many Big Brothers.  Although love cannon or hate it, the fact that this many people actually give a shit about one thing is amazing, so yay Jo!    

 

It surprises me, really, how members of this fandom seem to take up a crusade banner for their particular ship or belief, and defend it like they are on some sort of holy war.  It makes me want to promote the concept from "Dogma," that it is better to have ideas than beliefs because beliefs are so difficult to change and people will kill or die for them, whereas ideas can change more freely.  Because, aren't we all together in this thing, fandom?  It's a whole world of possibilities and no one has the 'right' slash pairing since this is all fiction based on fiction, and it seems like we should all be supporting each other in every imaginative foray into the many possibilities of fanfic.  Whoever we ship, whether we are readers or writers, we are all basically saying the same thing:  this is my happiness.  This is a way to read or write my version of a perfect world, my bit of heaven on earth…whether it be fluffy, angsty, humorous, dark, het, or slash.  And that is what I love so much about fandom.  

 

And now, everyone can go off and write his or her own versions of how the story could have gone, and it will be exciting and new and there are a thousand thousand stories waiting to be discovered, and whatever you think about cannon I think its capacity for opening doors to new worlds and stories is amazing.  Fandom is a force that unites people across age, gender, race, geographic location, sexual orientation, religion, etc.  And that, my friends, is pretty freaking amazing.

In recent news, I am 99% sure going to move into Minneapolis on August 1st! I'm all excited, it'll be my first apartment alone. It's just a studio, but I think it's cute. Mostly I just love the Uptown neighborhood, there are lots of coffee shops and book stores and theaters. Also, I interviewed for a job in a day spa about 5 blocks away so that would be wonderful!! To celebrate, I have purchased a new Brian Andreas print to put up in my new place, because I love his work. It says,

Is willing to accept that she creates her own reality,
except for the parts where she can't help
but wonder what the hell she was thinking.

It goes well with my other print that reads,

Leaning out as far as she can,
hoping she'll fall soon so
she can stop worrying about
whether it will happen or not.

I think that about sums up my life, really! So, things are looking up- now I just need to get a better job so I can afford my life!

Okay, so I have determined that I really need to write in this more often. But since not a lot seems to be going on in my life, we'll see how that goes! It may end up as a rumination on whatever is bumping around in my mind at the time. Mostly, my life right now involves me trying to figure out what I'm going to do with it. I have a license to teach k-12 Spanish, and an English writing major, and an aesthetician license...and I'm working at a group home. I have this mental block going on right now about effecting any change in my life, but I seem to be at the rock-bottom move-your-ass point since my current job doesn't give me enough money to effectively live on. But, I am looking for an esthetician job now, and I'm on my way soon to go look at a studio apt. in Uptown Minneapolis which would be a really cool area to live in. So, hopefully one of these years I figure out what I want to do with my life. Besides work at a book store at some point, and a coffee shop as well. It seems like those would be awesome jobs to have, since I love books and people watching.

Possibly, I need more goals in life! Well, I do plan to walk the pilgrimage route across the top of Spain, too. I recently read a book my crazy, world-traveling aunt sent me. It talks about vocation and it says that, "Vocation at it's deepest level is, 'This is something I can't not do, for reasons I'm unable to explain to anyone else and don't fully understand myself but are nonetheless compelling.'" I think that sums up my thoughts on why I never seem to settle on one career, combined with my current favorite Brian Andreas print. It reads, "I don't know how long I can do this, he said. I think the universe has different plans for me. And we sat there in silence and I thought to myself that this is the thing we all come to and this is the thing we all fight and if we are lucky enough to lose, our lives become beautiful with mystery again. And I sat there silent because that is not something that can be said."

So, there are my daily ramblings. And, because I'm ridiculous and don't put this stuff into my own journal, here is my last Blades of Glory fic. I am so in love with this fandom! Also, I need to kick my muses into gear because I'm having issues with writing my latest story.

Sex and CandyCollapse )

Oh my god, a real life post!
So, I have realized that it is weird to have a journal that contains nothing but fiction, because its sort of like the author doesn't really exist. But I do exist, I swear! Currently, I exist between two places that I don't really live...because I am supposed to be moving into a house with my friend, but the house isn't built on time and I had to move out of my sister's place since she got married. Therefore, I am bouncing between my sister's house and my friend's parents' house for the next few weeks until the new house is ready. It's annoying as hell, especially since it means I can't be up on the internet late anymore because I have a desk top and can't bring it to my friend's parents' house.

I have to go back to my sister's house in the daytime, when I'm not working, to work on my story. I am typing on my friend's laptop since she is at work and I'm off, and I'm hoping to God she doesn't figure out what I'm doing on her computer because any hint of anything gay squicks the hell out of her and she'd freak if she discovers my favorite pastime is reading or writing slash fanfiction. Although, it has occured to me that she is going to have to find out at some point because when I live with her, she'll sort of wonder what I'm up to on the internet all the time...has anyone ever been de-friended for being into slash, I wonder? I'm thinking it's a definite possibility with her...or, she'll just start praying for my soul and trying to get my back to God. I don't think I'm away from God, but I don't think we believe in the same one- my God likes gay people just the way they are, seeing as he created them that way, that's what I think.

So...other stuff about me, I'm working at a group home and just got finished teaching British Lit. to a homeschool group. I'm trying to find a job as an esthetician, although not very hard because I am the world's biggest procrastinator and even though I love change I dislike instigating it...I am a walking irony.

Inescapable plot bunny!

Now, to introduce myself a bit.   I am intrigued the whole subculture of fandoms, communities become outlets for all that people generally try to conceal from the world at large- our inner obsessive, and lets be honest here, pervy, tendencies- which is very cool and liberating!  Okay, I’m off my soap box now.  I have an idea for a Jimmy/Katie/Chazz story that would be quite long and have a plot line running from right after the movie ends until…maybe a year later?  Starting PG and slowly transitioning to NC-17.  But before I write it, I want to be sure people would want to read it- are threesomes too squicky (holds breath and blushes, waiting for an answer)? 
 

Okay, here are my thoughts regarding where this trio could end up.  Now that Katie is likely disowned from her siblings, and they are going to be out of the picture in jail regardless, she will want somewhere to live.  I don’t imagine the old house has many positive memories for her.  Jimmy and Chazz also need somewhere to live, because they were only in that house temporarily.  It would make sense for them to move in together- likely an apartment in Denver with 3 bedrooms.  Chazz would want his space, and I don’t think Jimmy and Katie are ready to share a room all the time- they are quite obviously both virgins, and I think they would move a bit slowly when it comes to sexual things, especially since they are both inexperienced and probably insecure- think about your first relationship, it’s very nervous and tenuous at first. 

Because of this insecurity, I think they would each go to Chazz for advice on sexual things, since he is obviously the expert- but I don’t think they would let each other know much about this advice at first, because they would want to please each other and seem like they know what they are doing when it comes to sexual things; even though Jimmy did say Chazz “taught him a few things.”  I think Chazz would give great advice when it comes to sex- but he would respect their wishes for him to keep quiet about the lessons.  But by his teaching each of them about sex, he would be teaching them exactly what he likes, even if it wasn’t done on purpose- he would be molding the pair into his ideal partners. 

I think Jimmy and Katie would be truly in love- Chazz would just learn to love her as a friend first.  I don’t think he has ever been around one woman for long enough to experience really loving a woman before, but once he got used to it I think he would like the stability and type of passion it can create. I think Jimmy will turn into a very touchy-feely person now that he as learned to allow people into his personal space, so the men’s gradual closeness will come from that- I can see him laying in Chazz’s lap to watch a movie, etc. and genuinely being innocent to any sexual connotation that action has.  Chazz, the more innately sexual being, will realize his desire for Jimmy first.  I don’t think either of the men is gay- they would both just love Katie at first, and want her sexually, but them being attracted to each other would come more slowly because it is foreign to them.  Even though I love reading pwp slashiness, I don’t think it is too realistic for them at the point the movie ends, if I’m going for believability. 

Katie is already attracted to Jimmy, and Chazz is attracted to her- and I’m sure it would be hard to live with Chazz and not want him, and he would probably be endearing in his odd sort of way, leading to an emotional attraction as well. I don’t want to spoil how I would create the trio’s developing sexual relationship or how it would end, although I do have it all planned.  So… I know that was super long, sorry!  But, any suggestions, etc.?  Would you follow this story?  (Bites nails nervously)

Sort of first entry!
So I created this journal a few years ago, when I was stuck sitting around for months with a broken ankle.  During that time I discovered the amazing world of fan fiction, and I was planning on joining groups and commenting, and doing some stories myself...but I didn't.  I made a few random entries, but I deleted them to start fresh.  I have been guilty of being a lurker, so I am asking an apology of the entire subculture- I will do better, I promise!!!  (hides face in shame, but can't resist peeking between fingers to check for the proverbial thumbs up or down from the coliseum crowd)  However, I'm totally LJ and computer illiterate so I will have to go through some tutorials to figure out how to post stories behind cuts and things.  I have an idea for a long story involving Jimmy, Katie, and Chazz- eventual threesome pairing, but I really think I can make it work logically.  So, I will ask suggestions of the community- but I think I need a separate post so this whole intro doesn't end up in the community page.
