ladyfoxxx: (clap your hands!)
Okay, I seem to have LJ back, but I won't be counting my chickens. I haven't been able to use it hardly at all this entire week, but if it will let me, I have things to share!

Like, it was my birthday on Monday! I am YOUNG FOR TREES. And because I am the LUCKIEST PERSON, I got PRESENTS!

[livejournal.com profile] mizubyte made me a new journal layout! And it's SO GORGEOUS. Go on, click my username, have a look. I CAN'T STOP STARING AT IT. I have never had a custom layout before because I suck, and now I have an AWESOME one and I didn't even have to make it myself - SCORE. MY GIRLFRIEND IS THE SMARTEST.

Miz also wrote me FIC. Not just any fic but THE SEQUEL TO Failboat Frontmen which was the one I FORCED her to write ages ago because that's how I roll. It's a near-canon AU not-ficcy thing where Frank never joined MCR and instead fronted Leathermouth and they got huge and tour with MCR and he and Gerard are FRONTMEN IN LOVE and crash each other's shows and make eyes at each other on Steve's Untitled Rock Show and stuff. Anyway, it's AWESOME she's written Frontmen In Love which follows their continued adventures and it's smiling inducing and has lots of hot porn, so it's basically my perfect fic.

Oh and she totally made me this ridiculously fabulous hand-clappy icon too. More ridiculous Yo Gabba Gabba icons here!

[livejournal.com profile] bebunny played to my weaknesses and wrote COMPLETELY AWESOME Sky Pirate Ray! It's a wee companion fic to her completely awesome Clockwork Angels, giving Ray some time in the sun, and getting him laid, which I am ALWAYS in favour of. The girl writes the BEST fucking world-building you guys, you have no idea. I am in awe.

And if that wasn't ENOUGH, the totally awesome [livejournal.com profile] draconic_girl made a podfic of Skeleton Records. It's completely smile inducing, so go grab that if you want to listen to her read you the story of Gerard's ridiculous not-date with the hot guy from the record store.

In short - I am SPOILED.

I also got to go to the zoo, and hang out with my friends and do other awesome stuff.

Oh and yeah, there was also THAT WHOLE THING WITH THE SNOWFLAKES )

Yeah, so hopefully LJ will behave, so I can answer some comments because I'm SO fucking behind. Also, I have porn to post. If I can find time to prep it.

LJ, OH GOD, NEVER LEAVE ME AGAIN. *clings*
ladyfoxxx: (Ray and Frank cracking up)
ETA - Okay so apparently I am unlocking this?

So it appears that the thing that is going to make me make an LJ post after being a slack-ass slacker* who doesn't update much lately is this bandom voice post meme that is all over my flist right now.

If you haven't done it yet YOU SHOULD DO IT! \o/?

The Questions:
1. What's your username and is there a story behind it?
2. Where are you from and where do you live now?
3. What are you wearing? Yes, I am hitting on you.
4. How long have you been in bandom? How did you get into it?
5. Which bands are your favorites?
6. Which band members are your favorites?
7. Have you seen any of them in concert? Any fun stories or memories to share?
8. Do you have an OTP? What is it, and why do you love it?
9. What story do you wish someone would write?
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

Apologies in advance for my snottyness, I have a mild cold. Go ahead, make fun of my (rather muddled) accent. Also, my apologies to [livejournal.com profile] brooklinegirl for getting my snot all over the first paragraph or so of her most awesome story.

bandom voice meme by ladyfoxxx

*slack-ass slacker is actually code for "being eaten alive by my NaNoWriMo"
ladyfoxxx: (killjoys - Geeway fingerguns WHEEE)
HI HI HI.

Look I'm not dead! I am just... IDEK, not around much. Those who are on my twitter feed will know that I recently started a new awesome yet demanding job which is eating me alive, and prior to that I was being eaten alive by my crazed, last minute writing spree to get my [livejournal.com profile] bandombigbang fic done. I'm still kind of flailing in the general direction of my bbb fic, I had to request a late posting date because oh man I need EVERY SINGLE SECOND and new job = crazy demanding.

So really, there ain't that much left of me that hasn't been nibbled on from all sides, my spare time these days is ZERO.

But enough of all that palaver!

Can I be the LATEST to say thank you to everyone who responded to my thread on the You Are Beautiful Anonymeme? Just, I don't even know where to start, I think I'm going to have to save up that thread to read on days when the world is kicking my ass because it's SO wonderful and life affirming and happymaking for me. God, I adore you guys. For those of you who said you don't know me that well or wished you knew me better - STEP UP bb's! I'm right here! I try to be approachable, I swear I do.

Anyway, let's talk about FIC. See, last week I got to meet [livejournal.com profile] chuckaloonie IN PERSON. And oh man I could NOT STOP HUGGING HER. She is tiny and adorable and so so sweet and she gave me candy from Mexico and we talked about fic and boys and stupidity with [livejournal.com profile] kopperblaze, [livejournal.com profile] bebunny, [livejournal.com profile] xclusiveantonym, [livejournal.com profile] never_coming_bk (who made amazing CUPCAKES!) and [livejournal.com profile] piratesunk was there for a while, but way before me because I am the LATEST.

Anyway, awesome fangirl lovepiles aside - Laura has not been able to keep up with fandom lately (what, with the whole, having a life thing) and she's been MISSING ALL THE FIC.

So, she has charged me and [livejournal.com profile] bebunny to make a list of the ten not-to-be-missed fics of the last six months. And since I believe in being lazy being efficient I thought perhaps y'all could remind me - what is a recent fic that really REALLY knocked your socks off? I'm already percolating some of my own ideas, but I need some reminding.

A few little details as to preference! Bandom of course, MCR-centric preferred, and she's not really big on Killjoys. Also, if Bob's in it there may be tears of joy. And she likes her porn.

THANK YOU OH F-LIST OF WISDOM. *hugs you all* I missed the shit out of you guys.
ladyfoxxx: (Ray smiles like the sun)
Hi I'm crap! Here is a short list of why:

1. New job where I share a room cuts back on my internet time
2. I am addicted to Twitter and have been spending a lot of time there, since 140 characters seems to be about the level of commitment I can handle right now.
3. I am madly trying to write my [livejournal.com profile] bandombigbang so that I have some kind of draft in for the 30 April deadline. A week ago I had 6k. I now have just over 20k (\o/?) but I still need an ending. Of course once I have an ending I will need a TITLE and a SUMMARY and OMG HATE HATE those two things. /end whinge

Anyway, HERE IS A PHOTO OF RAY ON THE PIANO.



ASK ME HOW MUCH I WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH HIM RIGHT NOW. GO ON ASK ME. Hint: A LOT. [livejournal.com profile] kopperblaze is the best because she keeps slipping me links to photos of Ray being adorable/a hotass.

Also, here is a meme! [livejournal.com profile] piratesunk was looking for a title for a fic earlier and I made a bunch of really stupid suggestions, which made me think this one might be a bit of fun. Yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] romanticalgirl

Give me a title in comments and I tell you* the story that would go with it.

(*Tell you = summarise. Because I need to practice my summaries, naturally!)

HI LJ. I MISSED YOU.
ladyfoxxx: (Frankie is actually a zombie)
So I spent the day curled up on the couch with my doona (duvet or comforter to you foreigners) and trying not to cough. My body has SUCH a sick sense of humour to be doing this NOW.

But the good news is! I have a [livejournal.com profile] bebunny! She's crashing here tonight, then tomorrow we're setting off with [livejournal.com profile] xclusiveantonym for Manchester where we'll meet up with [livejournal.com profile] dancinbutterfly and [livejournal.com profile] krisipanics to see those crazy Chimerical Romances again. And again on Saturday in Nottingham with [livejournal.com profile] dancinbutterfly because I am INSANE.

So, body, no time to get SICK now! OKAY? I am taking ALL the vitamin C.

In the meantime - have a meme!

Post the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. Feel free to ask about anything and I'll tell you the premise or paste you a tidbit for any of these.

Okay, so my filenames aren't all that descriptive, I am wavering as to whether to note the pairings too, or at least the verses since a bunch of them appear to be sequels. Let me know if there's any that sound interesting.

This was supposed to be a short, brief gig recap, but apparently I HAVE A LOT OF WORDS. AND A LOT OF LOVE. THAT I NEED TO SHARE WITH YOU ABOUT HOW AWESOME THIS GIG WAS. There is possibly an overuse of CAPS at time. I am sleep deprived and SLAP HAPPY, OKAY?

I have also furnished this post with some photos - the crappy ones are mine, from my gig tweets, the good ones I pilfered from [livejournal.com profile] mcr_unofficial.

ON WITH THE RECAP! )

&THISBAND;

THEY WERE ON MOTHERFUCKING FIRE.

AND HAVING SUCH A GOOD TIME. Allow me to end on my favourite note of the evening: RAY TORO'S FACE:



SUMS UP THE ENTIRE NIGHT ON SO MANY LEVELS.
ladyfoxxx: (killjoys - all four sexy fuckers)
Okay gorgeous flisties, so it's now Australia Day in my home country. Which means you have approximately 19 hours left to bid on me at the [livejournal.com profile] qldfloodauction. What is this in aid of? My post where I explain why I'm participating. Obviously the worst of the actual flooding is over but there is a LOT of cleanup and a LOT of rebuilding to be done. Which means $$$ is the best way forward for a lot of my fellow Queenslanders - thus the fundraising!

What the winning bid will get - a minimum of 2k of fic (and hey, I'm wordy these days, it will likely be more) written by me! For you! Pairing of your choice - preferably one I've written before but hey, I am open to challenges. I will even try Waycest!

My bidding thread

Bid hard, bid often.

Also, for your reference (though I doubt it will be necessary, ha. Like I'm that popular), here is the local time in Sydney, Australia - bidding closes at 11:59pm EDT (ie. the time on that clock).

Happy bidding folks!

ETA. Completely off topic, but I was updating my Masterlist and I noticed my first two fics posted of the new year are both het and wife centric. Huh. I totally didn't plan that.
ladyfoxxx: (Default)
I'm sure you've all heard by now about [livejournal.com profile] qldfloodauction. I don't know how many of you know that Brisbane is my hometown, but it is. It's somewhat surreal to be in London seeing the news reports roll in about how three quarters of my home state is underwater. To see photos and footage of streets I used to walk down, places I used to shop, bridges I've crossed, places I've lived and worked - destroyed and waterlogged.

Some picture examples )

My family and friends back home so far are okay - lucky enough to live on high enough ground, thank god, but that doesn't change just how many people have become homeless from this - and how much work lies ahead with cleanup and rebuilding the socalled sunshine state.

So I'm putting myself up for auction to try to raise money for this cause. My thread is here. I'm offering a minimum of 2k of fic, bidders choice.

I know I still have outstanding debts from a previous auction - I'm working on those right now, just so you know. I couldn't not participate in this, it's too close to home - literally and symbolically.

If anyone else is participating in the auction please let me know - I'm ready to bid.

Auction closes on the 26th of January. Porn for a cause people. Happy bidding!
ladyfoxxx: (Geeway gleeface OMGSURPRISEWTFBBQ)
*waves*

So I'm completely behind on pretty much everything! There are at least two [livejournal.com profile] werewolfbigbang fics posted I'm desperate to read, the [livejournal.com profile] pxp_flashbang fics have started posting and I haven't had time to read any of them, there are new interviews GALORE I haven't had time to watch and tomorrow is the Dr D broadcast thingy - FOR THE LOVE OF GOD FANDOM, SOMEONE RIP THIS. I need to see it and I know I won't be able to tune in live.

But I made it to Australia safe and sound, the wedding was fun and I didn't get too drunk and my little niece is ADORABLE.

Here's a few things you may or may not have already seen/know about that are making my GLEEFACE right now.

1. I WROTE FIC )

2. THE MCR DANGER DAYS SYDNEY LISTENING PARTY IS A GO )

3. DECEMBER CONTINUES TO LOOK TOTALLY AWESOME )

So there is my big three. I am so sorry I haven't been around much and I continue to not be around much. I am skimming my flist and randomly checking Twitter on my phone but I feel like I'm missing more than I'm getting. Please, if you post anything cool or see any awesome Bandom shit drop it in my comments because I feel like I am MISSING EVERYTHING.

Of course, most of all I am missing YOU, flist. So much. *HUGS YOU ALL* Don't give up on me yet. I'll be back soon! With porn. LOTS OF PORN.
ladyfoxxx: (killjoys - gleeful squee)
And I miss the ENTIRE PARTY.

My flist? SKIP 160. You guys, WOW. Amazing. I love how the posts chart from total capslocky squee to 'OMG let's talk about details' to FIC. YES THERE IS ALREADY KILLJOYS VERSE FIC. I LOVE IT.

This is the first actual pre-album crazy thing I have been around for (my last band-based fandom I showed up after the last album was made, so I never got to experience this kind of crazy first hand) and I FUCKING MISSED IT. I feel like the last girl to show up at the orgy, smell of sex and sweat everywhere, and a bunch of fucked out people all passed out and too tired to comment.

So, this isn't a squee post about the trailer (the amazing, amazing trailer) because I doubt I have anything to say that hasn't already been said ad infinitum (OMG FRANK'S FACE FINALLY OMFG, GEE'S CRAZY BEAUTIFUL AMAZING STUPID RED HAIR, AND HIS WIGGLY WIGGLY ASS AND HIS NAKED AND GIRLY SHOULDERS, AND RAY LICKING HIS FINGERS AND WEARING SHIT-HOT AVIATORS AND MIKEY'S FUCKING HOT-LIKE-BURNING BLONDE HAIR, HIS HAAAAIR AND HIS FUCKING NINTENDO GLOVE AND POLKA DOTTED LADYBOYS ON ROLLER SKATES AND THEM LINING UP LIKE IN THE INOK VIDEO AND THE SONG IS SO FUCKING CATCHY AND THIGH HOLSTERS THIGH HOLSTERS!! AND ADORABLE BANDIT-IN-2019-AGED GIRL AND THE MOTHERFUCKING TRANS AM AND THE HIGH POSSIBILTY OF RAY AND MIKEY ON MOTORCYCLES AND AND AND...)

Instead it's going to be a OMG MCR ARE TOURING EUROPE post. WHY SO FUCKING SOON? Cut because there is just no pleasing me )

But hey, let's talk about how MCR are gonna be in Edinburgh on the 25th October! And guess who is going to be in GLASGOW on the 25th of October? THE FUCKING BLACK CARDS that's who. You know, PETE'S NEW BAND. So he'll be like, an hour away from MIKEY and they are touring Europe at THE SAME TIME. IS THIS A COINCIDENCE? *adjusts tin hat*

It went something like this I'm sure )

Holy crap, those two bands, in Europe at the same time. WHAT IF THEY PLAYED A SHOW TOGETHER? HOLY CRAP MY BRAIN WOULD EXPLODE. IT WOULD BE LIKE SUMMER OF LIKE REDUX. Oh universe, GIVE ME THIS.

I WILL STOP POSTING NOW BUT I WILL NEVER STOP SQUEEING.
ladyfoxxx: (text - but what's the pantone number?)
So I was going to post some more top 5 answers yesterday, but [livejournal.com profile] b_dsaint and I ended up writing cracktacular Clueless recast as Bandom chatfic instead. Because we are complete dorks and highly distractable like that. WHOOPS.

Anyway, without further ado, some Top Fives!

5 places I'd like to visit )

5 celebrity looks I'd like to steal )

and 5 favourite foods )

I still have a few more top 5's left, so expect another post at some point.


In the meantime, why not sign up to write some happy Pete/Mikey fic? Because there really will never be enough in the world.




And in other, other news... Brendon, what ARE you doing? )
ladyfoxxx: (text - I wrote THAT?)
Because I'm sick. In the body as well as the mind at the moment, which is a change from normal. Work has been FIERCE and it's a habit of mine to fall victim to any floating bug the moment a deadline passes. So deadline day was yesterday and today I'm home wrapped up in my doona (duvet to you foreigners) with a nasty sounding cough and lots of orange juice. I'm going to try to catch up on my f-list but it feels like I've been gone so long I'm going to miss a lot, so I'm really sorry if you posted something cool recently and I didn't comment. I should be back on the horse now.

Thank you so SO much to everyone who responded to my thread on the Fanfic Appreciation Meme. I'm sorry I haven't responded individually (would you like to see my doctor's note?), but truly and sincerely it was such a lift to read your thoughts and find out what your favourites were. I was actually kind of surprised by the spread of fic in the responses and it made me beam how many people said In Production because at the time of posting that I was so hideously unsure about it. Thank you so, SO much for taking the time to share your thoughts. It was so much what I needed.

In an effort to give this post some content, have some Top 5 responses.

5 bandom photos that demand an invitation into my pants )

5 pictures of bandies being 12 and giant nerds )

5 things I got into because of someone in bandom )

5 fics I want to finish writing )

So, did I miss anything important? How are you, f-list?

I wish I could stop coughing, it's giving me a headache.
ladyfoxxx: (gee horizontal)
So in seven and a half hours I'll be on a plane to the UK. I will actually be in the sky at midnight, well more than one midnight with the change of timezones. I'm just stupidly positive about this relocation and looking forward to some adventure.

I don't make new years resolutions, but if I did this year's will be to travel, to write and to learn to play a musical instrument. I'll definitely be working toward those goals this year, not because of a resolution  - but because I WANT to.

I know I haven't posted any fresh fic in a while, so here is a little sort-of meme. 5 grabs from 5 unpublished fics/fics-in-progress that will be finished in the new year.

Five upcoming fics )

Hope there's something there that looks interesting. Please post your own! And happy new year!
