1. How can Timothy Hutton and Christian Kane as their characters on Leverage make me want to do dirty dirty things to them, and more importantly, watch them do them to each other. I know it's only been on for two episodes but someone has to have started a leverage community. I need to find it. Or I need to encourage others to write for it. Or I need to sneak into [livejournal.com profile] poisontaster's AKB community and write chris kane + tim hutton (who apparently has been seized but i don't know more and need to research it) when slaves fall in love fic.

2. Someone on my friends list wrote some van/jake S&M club fic. It wasn't done, but it was started. And I. Can't. Find. It. Fess up, flist. Which one of you was it? [livejournal.com profile] j525, i kinda think it was you. Am I wrong? Where did it go.

3. While driving to face a strange moment in the history of my real life, I was listening to Cry Cry Cry and heard The Kid followed by The Ballad of Mary Magdalen. I was so caught up in the emotions of those two songs side by side, and all of a sudden I had this idea for a new story. Great Depression era traveling circus + selkie or merman + runaway gay boy. Do others of you do this? Do you hear a song and have it just hit you in the gut with the emotion of it?

4. Research stuff and things. I need to find some books on The Great Depression and more on traveling circuses. I need to think in sepia tones and cirque du soleil before cirque du soleil existed. I can see the world forming in the edge of my mind, but it isn't there yet. Recommendations for links/books/etc that you think I should know are appreciated.

5. I'm looking for music with circus references. I have The Kid by Cry Cry Cry. I have Monkey in the Middle (or whatever it is) by Suzanne Vega. I have Damn Everything But The Circus by The Story. What else do I need? Ask your friends, ask your neighbors. The more songs the merrier.

6. I realized that this past friday was my Fanniversary. I posted my first ever fanfic on 12/12/07. [livejournal.com profile] merepersiflage is a foul temptress and I have been captivated ever since. Thank you. I wanted to celebrate all things fic in my life by posting a companion piece to the first one. I might still do that. But it will be late. In the mean time, I am celebrating by taking pencil to paper and starting part 6 of the interview. It's hurting my soul a little bit to see my poor rentboy noah so fucked up, but that's nothing next to how hurt luke is currently. Those boys. There will be some of this posted later tonight for anyone interested.

7. I joined a community which, if I participate, would have me writing j2. Technically, I suppose, what I submitted to Samhain could be classified as j2 AU, but not really. I'm not sure of what I think of dipping my toes into those waters. It's seriously intimidating. But it's also Disney movies done j2 style. And some of my favorites are wanting to do it. I have until Jan 4th to decide. There's time.

8. Speaking of Samhain ... It is the 14th. I have ten days in which to hear something from them. Ten. More. Days. Ack.

Interview Part 6, the beginning. Totally w/o betas. )
I'm trying out this different way of writing where I write the scene that has the strongest pull in my head, and not necessarily the one that logically follows the rest. It seems to be working, which, huh. Kinda cool. I'm pretty sure I owe that to writing fanfic, and more specifically writing with [livejournal.com profile] ithilien22. I wrote 'missing scenes' for my magnets'verse. Then because I was passing stories back and forth with ithilien, I would write bits and pieces not connected to words I had written last. Part of me struggles against this because my writing idols are the ones that primarily fly by the seats of their pants and write sequentially. I want to emulate them. However, if this works, then this works. And I'm going with it.

That was the preface to the fact that what I'm not writing at the moment is the big black moment. It's going well as far as the dialogue goes. Ben (who used to be Jake, and could still go back to Jake) came back to the farm prepared to ask Gabe to stay. Especially now that it won't matter because the marriage can't go through in time, so there's no way to mistake what Ben is doing for sneaking through his dad's will. But he gets home, and there's a little yellow coupe in the driveway and he loses his shit.

The good: I know I have to finish this part before I go back to work tomorrow. I can't leave it like this or I'll be a big ol' mess. This means that I need to push forward, and while I still have brackets in which i have notes like 'must write sexy horseback lesson' and 'need to shift my timeline forward three days', I will have ostensibly finished the fucker.

The bad: IT'S SAD.

Here. )
Title: The Interview (Part 3)
Author: nouveau_monday
Pairing: Noah/Luke
Rating: PG-13 for language
Word Count: 3.7kish
Summary: Noah finds a new location and tries to return something Luke left behind.
Spoilers: This is completely AU for the boys. So yeah, any relation to the story line is minor. Facts I kept were the Colonel, Noah's mom, and Oakdale. Other characters resemble themselves, but everyone, by definition is not quite him/her self.
Disclaimer: As I said, this is AU. The characters belong to CBS and P&G and possibly others, but definitely not me. That is the real travesty of all of this.
Notes: Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] mightyten for being a great beta, especially when I whine all the time. And she's ridiculously busy. And she still did this. Because she rocks. And also [livejournal.com profile] elin_aurora who saved me during my time of need.

Apparently he looks psychotic enough, because the guy behind the counter nods like one of those big-headed bobble head toys and scurries away to the coffee pots. )


Next Installment
It's 10:51. I've written about 3k. I need to write about 2k more. There will be no sex in this. And there will be no sex because my fucking tits are itchy and so if i'm going to suffer with itchy tits then noah can fucking suffer with itchy tits. Tell me again about being deranged for liking body modifications and that it is so not okay and bordering on way beyond tacky to bitch about ones tits when one voluntarily willingly went and had metal bits put in them.

gaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

also. I just glanced through a bigbang and couldn't read it because dean shoots some chick named Monday. WTF is that about? I mean, duh, nothing to do with me, but hello, dying mondays shot by dean? So not FTW.


okay. i'm done for now.

Title: Love Don't Die
Author: nouveau_monday
Pairing: Luke/Noah
Rating: PG-13/R for language, and yes, that means no sex occurs in this piece. (I wasn't going to mention that, but apparently as this little !verse of mine has been all about the sex until recently, so someone thought I ought to mention it.)
Word Count: 4.4k-ish
Summary: Noah is well and truly broken, and deals in the only way he knows how. He pushes away the person who could help.
Spoilers: There are quotes from the show all the way through June 16th of this year. If you aren't up to date, and don't want to be, don't read.
Disclaimer: This is mostly why Noah did what he did. I don't own anything or anyone related to this show. If I did it would be very very different. CBS and P&G, Van, Jake, I'm a little jealous of you all for owning yourselves and this story.
Notes: Much thanks, as always, to [livejournal.com profile] mightyten and extra thanks for helping me in a panic goes to [livejournal.com profile] vertigo66 It was suggested that I point out that all of this is in my little Magnets!verse, and in that happy place (or not so happy place currently), the boys have been having sex since New Years Eve. And, I'm still on track with the storyline. So what do you know, maybe it has been going on for that long? You can start at the beginning of the Magnets stories by checking out my memories. They're all numbered and pretty there.
My other note, as always, is to give credit to the music that wound up as the title. Disappear Fear's Love Don't Die off Seeds in the Sahara because in the end it was it was about Noah thinking he should be able to rescue both himself and Luke, but that maybe it would be better if he did that just by leaving.

Noah stared around the bedroom he had shared with Ameera, forbade his gaze to land on his boyfriend. )



A few lyrics to make sense of the title:
I apologise
for taking sides
and putting this charade on parade
try to pretend
right to the end
that i could always rescue
you and i
god knows how
hard we tried
love don't die
it just hides
while we decide

Title: If I Wrote You
Author: nouveau_monday
Pairing: Luke/Noah
Rating: PG-13/R for language, and yes, that means no sex occurs in this piece. (I wasn't going to mention that, but apparently as this little world has been all about the sex, someone thought I ought to mention it.)
Word Count: 4.6k-ish
Summary: Noah and Luke aren't sure how it happened that they aren't speaking, but they know it's not okay. Now how do they fix it?
Spoilers: There are quotes from April 29th's show and May 6th's show. All of the events take place between those two dates. If you aren't up to date, and don't want to be, don't read.
Disclaimer: In my world this is what happened between when Luke left and then when Luke next showed up at the house a week later. Apparently the writers left these scenes on the cutting room floor.
Notes: Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] mightyten for being the best beta, especially when she has her own wonderful stuff to write which is amazing and you all should read immediately if you haven't. Also, she suggested that I point out that all of this is in my little Magnets!verse, and in that happy place, the boys have been having sex since New Years Eve. And, I'm still on track with the storyline. So what do you know, maybe it has been going on for that long? You can start at the beginning of the Magnets stories by checking out my memories. They're all numbered and pretty there.
My other note, as always, is to give credit to the music that wound up as the title. Dar Williams' If I Wrote You off End of Summer because in the end it was that fear of this all being over that stopped the boys from speaking.


If I Wrote You

Noah ran his fingers through his hair and definitively did not throw something. Ameera was there, and not used to loud noises. Or maybe she was overly used to loud noises. Whatever. It didn't matter. Luke had done it again. But this time, it didn't feel like before. )
Title: It Was What I Wanted Now
Author: nouveau_monday
Pairing: Luke/Noah
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 9kish
Summary: Luke makes a request of Noah after the wedding is over and everyone should be sleeping.
Spoilers: through the wedding
Disclaimer: If I wrote for ATWT, this is what we all would have seen after the travesty which was Noah marrying Ameera while Luke watched.
Notes: written for [livejournal.com profile] luke_noah's monthly challenge #1; "you belong to me". Lyrics of choice for the title with much thanks to Juice Newton and Angel of the Morning. Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] mightyten for being a great beta, especially when I whine all the time. And she's sick. And she still did this. Because she rocks.


Luke frowned at the piece of paper in Noah's hand and crossed his arms in front of him. Maybe he could make it spontaneously combust? His heart hurt. )

Story done. I think I did get the angst I was looking for. Waiting for beta to read and then I'll post up. An interesting thing about writing this is that I've gotten much better about my deadlines and about making writing a priority.

I've never been more grateful for a vice in my life.

I went to visit my friend [livejournal.com profile] katomyte in NYC this weekend. Had a blast. Spent saturday day time walking around the city. Spent saturday night and sunday morning watching Dark Angel episodes with Jensen Ackles in them.

Just for the record, I feel like a dirty old man. Seriously. I just don't think I should have had such an intense ohmygodwantnownownow a. about a celebrity, b. a celebrity many years ago, c. i had a whole bunch of more reasons but all of them end in my toes curling and me panting with bizarro celebrity lust.

In other news, I continue to be all angsty within my fandom of choice. I need to jump fandoms or something. I keep hearing angsty music and going "oh, that would be perfect for how Luke or Noah is feeling right now." Tonight's music of choice was Pet Shop Boys Jealousy.

I can picture Luke being at the farm, lying on his bed, thinking about what happened, maybe tossing a hackey sack up in the air and catching it. He doesn't want to think about Noah and Ameera, doesn't want to think about why he hasn't heard from Noah in twelve hours, doesn't want to think about what might be going on, even though realistically he knows nothing is going on, but it doesn't stop the pain, the fear, the vision that's flitting through his mind. He's so gay that he'd totally be listening to the pet shop boys and would absolutely identify with the lyrics. (For those not in the know, you can find the lyrics behind the cut.)

I wanted to write hugs and puppies and now I'm stuck in confusion. What just went on today? Also, there is someone on my FL who kept on talking junk about Luke and Casey hooking up. I am so very not down with this. You know who you are. I blame you entirely.

However, points for Noah saying he loved Luke and points for that snuggle at the end.
