...who don't understand my love for media in all its sundry (sultry, dirty) forms.

Do you not have enough time to waste online that you want add another person's sn to your AIM chat list? Well, mine is up for grabs! *g*

Honestly, this is my first foray into participating in a real fandom, and I don't know (m)any(?) people, so I figured I'd start with an open invite.

I'd love to chat about fiction, writing, editing, sparkly boys in bandom, tv shows, manga, whathaveyou.... Shoot me an IM at cinderfalling and/or leave a comment. (Hopefully, this means I'll start using AIM more than a couple times a...year.)

Well, and ETA because as long as I'm posting!:

Why did no one on my friends-list post this interview with Gerard and Bon Jovi?

The one where Gerard acts like a thirteen-year-old GIRL with a BIG FAT CRUSH, all shy smiling and ducking his head and playing with his hair when Bon Jovi compliments his band and laughs! at *his* jokes! The amount of girliness and adorableness is beyond words and I had to find it ON MY OWN.

Gerard makes huge hand gestures! And plays with his hair! (I mentioned that, but it bears repeating.) And talks like he's on a first date with the coolest boy in school! Jersey accents! And he's wearing the rainbow unicorn shirt!

Well, and uhm. Okay. I have to admit I made (teeny!) screencaps when I first watched (but teeny ones! Youtube-sized!) of Gerard's uber-ultimate cute girliness. And uhm. May have uploaded them to post to the internet for posterity.

...I don't really have an excuse for this one except that sparkly, girly, basement-dwelling cult leaders on dates with their schoolyard rockstar crushes interest me. )
I wrote for Her Majesty's Dog, A Dog Dreams on Kirkegaard Hill. My recipient asked for something sweet, and I tried--although I'm more than fairly sheepish at my attempt, as I was (and am) still trying to finish final papers that aren't coming. I had to scramble very last minute to cobble together a much more involved story I jotted down in my notes than I had time to produce. I'm relieved she did like it, though.

I got Black Moon in the Afternoon Sky, an amazing story by Melymbrosia set in the manga After School Nightmare. If you read my half-coherent comment on the story, it manages to contain every single thing I absolutely LOVE about the manga.


After School Nightmare: Some background and pictures. )

Just. Guh. To recap and summarize: The gender politics--genderfuckery, people--the respect the story pays to the plot and to its characters, the intelligence quotient of the entire piece, and the HOTNESS. There is a scene later in the series that I found hotter, more intimate than entire PWPs, and it's one kiss. The mangaka is amazing. She conveys so much with so little, and with such talent; a lot of times, the things that go unsaid between the characters are almost palpable. My breath fucking caught.

I can't do any sort of justice to the manga here, which is filled with nuance and detail, so I offer the first volume for download for you to check out: After School Nightmare vol 1
