I was talking about a story I read once in which someone licked someone's eardrum. I said I was surprised that I hadn't seen that sort of thing in Night Vale fandom, where prehensile tongues aren't ruled out by canon. And [personal profile] king_touchy commented:

Oh god, just by writing that out you likely caused exactly that fic to spontaneously exist.

And, you know, it's probably true. Reality is malleable, and fandom doubly so. Who knows what I've let loose on the world with the power of my imagination!

With that in mind, let's try to use that power for good! With the power of my mind, I'm causing the following stories to burst spontaneously into existence:


  1. A story in which, while two people are falling in love, one of them washes the other's hair.

  2. A story in which one character says, "That feels so incredible. I don't even know what you're doing to me," and the other one tells him.

  3. A story with the line: "No. I don't want you to have what you want. What you want is to be safe from me."

  4. A story where a buttoned-up character only lets his emotions out when the other one can't respond -- say, talking into a hidden earpiece during a stakeout.

  5. A story where two people with an intense and difficult relationship go fishing together, sitting back-to-back on a cooler.

  6. A kiss in a kitchen.

The circle of gossip and power-mongering at work is expanding to the point where I'm finding it difficult to stay out of it. (See the Christians, and how they love one another.) I have a cold that's making me both uncomfortable and stupid. And some jerk threw a half-eaten Ho-Ho through my car window while I was working.

I don't suppose any of y'all have wonderful smut in progress that you'd like to share a little nugget of?

I'm not going to do the wishlist thing this year; I want one or two very expensive things, and aside from that, I'm at the point in my life where I really wish people would come to my house and take things away.

But I'm keeping an eye on y'all's wishlists. Don't forget to add them to Spreadthecheer.

Of course, anyone who wanted to write me some porn would be more than welcome to do so.

The Tech Goddess and I went to see "Memoirs of a Geisha" today (more because it had a conveniently-timed matinee than anything else). I wasn't terribly impressed.

There should be a word for that nice warm feeling you get when you finish a good book. Postliterary?

Anyhow, I finished Terry Pratchett's Thud in about a day and a half. It made me laugh until the spouse glared at me and put headphones on, and then it made me cry a little bit in a restaurant, damn it, because I'm just susceptible to that sort of thing.

And now I'm wishing that everybody in the world would slash Grag Bashfulsson. With anybody. I'm not picky.

(Oh, and Pratchett wrote a little history of the game on the official website of the game of Thud, which is why I love the internet.)

I dare you

resonant for some reason is imagining a new show called Stargate: Atlanta
resonant: in which they're just stuck in traffic all the time
resonant: and you can get a whole ep out of the day the air conditioner breaks.
shalott: bwahahahaha
shalott: dude
shalott: post that to lj
resonant: OK, why not.
shalott: and invite people to write drabbles for it
shalott: in the comments
shalott blithely arranges for you to be spammed with mail for my entertainment

[note. You can take them out of cars occasionally. I assume even people in Atlanta sometimes do something other than drive, such as work at the airport and stuff.]

Birthday was kind of a dud, actually; evidently I need to do a better job of going around the month beforehand and saying to friends and family, "When my birthday comes, which is in exactly twenty-four days ..." because RL people did not remember the way LJ people did -- the in-laws, my brother, and my best friend all forgot it. There was an ice cream cake, which was lovely (and will be lovely again tonight), and the kidlet made me a bookmark with copious use of her current favorite tool, the hole punch, and my mother sent me some money, so, hey.

And the spouse and I did get to go out to dinner and to see the Hitchhiker's Guide. Arthur is cute as a button (that's not a spoiler, is it? anybody want me to cut-tag that?), and anyone who wanted to write any Ford/Arthur would have one guaranteed reader, at least.

Mostly this is an excuse to use my new cupcake icon. Hooray for cupcakes!

Am I just imagining that someone wrote a Fraser/Vecchio story that made use of the similarity between "Benny" and "veni"? I could swear I'd read that story someplace. I even have it in my head that the title is "Veni."

If no one did, someone really should.

This post brought to you by my choir director, who just handed us Cherubini's "Veni Jesu."

Can't resist [livejournal.com profile] tartanshell's wishlist meme.

And by the way, [livejournal.com profile] plotbunnymuse is keeping a master list of wishlists here, so if you post one, go and add a comment.

My wishlist )

There are a lot of HP stories where Harry gets up from the table at the Leaving Feast and blows off a chance of the party of the decade in order to go down to the dungeon, shout, "I'm not your student any more," and fling himself at Snape.

Sometimes Snape is expecting this, and sometimes he's as shocked as Warner Bros.' lawyers. Sometimes he accepts Harry's offer, and sometimes he nobly sends him away to get old enough to be interesting gain Useful Experience and Perspective so that he can Make An Informed Relationship Decision.

What I want to know is, why is it always Harry who makes the first move?

Because, really, can't you see it the other way around? After the Leaving Feast, Snape comes up to the Gryffindor common room and sends everybody scattering, and he talks for a while to Harry in private and then sweeps away, and the rest of the Gryfs come cautiously back in:

"What'd Snape want, Harry?"

"Probably wanted one last chance to assign him a detention."

"Er, Harry? I really think it's not terribly healthy to be casting Scouring Charms at your lips ..."

And then Harry goes off into the world to get old enough to be interesting gain Useful Experience and Perspective and Enough Distance To Become Intrigued.

But meanwhile, Snape's despairing of Harry's ever changing his mind, since Harry didn't say "No thank you" or "I'm flattered, but" or "It's not you, it's me" -- he said "Wha -- aaaaagh -- no, no, no, make it stop, make it stop --, god, the nightmares, where's my wand ..."

That's a story I would really like to read.
