Fic: Crossroads, Original, R, 2/2

Title: Crossroads
Fandom: Original fiction
Pairing: Joe Emerson/Tony Vitali
Rating: R
Warnings: mild description of 9/11, mention of blood and burns, m/m kisses
Summary: Tony and Joe's decisions in the face of a new world and new situations
Notes: This is the original story I wrote for my Creative Writing: Short Fiction class. Many, many, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] jestana, [livejournal.com profile] swingandswirl, and my workshop group. Without them, this wouldn't have been quite as much fun and probably a slightly less believable story. :D

I've been playing a new Sim at university for the past couple days.



His name's Aeon Vandervelde and he's a shy art student. His original major was Literature, but he discovered a love of painting and switched to the art major.

I can't not do this

1 out of every 10 people are born Gay. That means 1 of every 10 people are instantly put down, given bad labels, left alone, put in a minority and so much more, all for something they didn't ask for.

Gay teens are turning to suicide as a way of escaping.

If you want to tell them that life will get better, & you respect them for who they are, copy & paste this. Most of you won't, but let's see the 5% of you who will.

Fic rec!

Spike, Xander and Tara are all pretty much tied for my favorite Buffy characters. Spike/Xander is my original OTP, but I've grown attached to Willow/Tara over the years. [livejournal.com profile] snowpuppies wrote a fabulous friendship!fic that focuses on Tara and Xander. I have no words for how much I love it, but it's beautiful and funny and poignant and sad and just plain lovely.

To Heorot, Bright with Gold by [livejournal.com profile] snowpuppies. Go tell her how awesome it is. I dare you not to laugh or go awwww at some point before the end.

For some reason, this is keeping me up

I'm generally not much of one to spout my religious or political beliefs and I may have posted about this before, but I need to get this out of my head so I can hopefully go to sleep some time tonight. This morning. Whatever.

One of my biggest pet peeves about the Conservatives' arguments about gay marriage is that America was founded on Christian principles. WRONG. Most of the Founding Fathers were Christians, yes, BUT many of the original settlers came here to get away from religious persecution in a nation that had a national religion. Thus why the Constitution specifically states separation of church and state.

Conclusion? Arguing that the national government should not allow gay marriage because it's against Christian principles means jack-all. It is NOT a valid reason. If it, in any way, threatened national safety (which it doesn't), THAT would be a valid reason.

In fact, any political argument that brings religion into things, whether it's Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism, or Wiccan is not a valid argument. Give me SOUND political arguments and I might listen to you, but the minute you bring up religion in a political debate, I will tune right out.

Also, the fact that any one person believes they have the right to dictate who I marry, be it a man or a woman, severely pisses me off. Granted, the purpose of elections is to allow the people to vote, but the fact that more than HALF the people in my home state think it's their right to decide who I marry is extremely disappointing.

Fic: Trusting Instinct, Numb3rs AU, Charlie/Colby, Ben/Brian(/Trent), PG-13

Title: Trusting Instinct
Fandom: Numb3rs AU
Pairings: Charlie/Colby, implied Ben/Brian/Trent
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: 3x24 The Janus List, 4x1 Trust Metric
Warnings: Slight drunkenness on Ben's part, but other than that, nothing you wouldn't see on the show
Summary: How the events in The Janus List affected Ben and his family.
Author's Note: Set after The Secret is Out but only by a week or so. According to the show, Trust Metric is only five weeks after Janus List, so, going by the air date for Janus List, Trust Metric takes place in mid-June of '07, rather than September as the air date for Trust Metric implies.

Please put this on your status if you know someone (or are related to someone) who has been eaten by dragons. My wish for 2010 is that people will understand that being eaten by dragons is not something to be ashamed of. Dragons are nearly unstoppable and are truly terrifying. 93% won't copy and paste this... they have been eaten by dragons.

Curious re: fanfic/canon relationships

What really sells you on a relationship? Is it the chemistry between the characters (perhaps even the actors)? Is it the subtext?

For me, it's banter. My family is always picking on each other and I banter a lot when I'm flirting, so witty banter really is what sells me on a relationship. That's why I love Charlie/Colby, Spike/Xander, Jack/Ianto, Zach/Shaun, Eliot/Hardison and Eliot/Nathan, Sam/Dean, even Hermione/Snape (not that they banter in canon, but a lot of the Hermione/Severus fic I read in my early fanfic reading years when she's older, there's quite a bit of banter and she holds her own against his snark). Although, Morgan and Garcia banter A LOT, their relationship is more a quasi-brother-&-sister/best-friends-who-flirt-because-it's-safe-to-do-so than romantic to me. On the other hand, I LOVE Garcia/Kevin, especially their hacking foreplay in Penelope when they're bantering without words and even with words without the other hearing them ♥

Anyway, the whole point is to get a discussion going, learn other people's point of view. Het, slash, gen lovers all welcome, pimp this out to your friends. Just, please, respect other people's point of view. If you disagree with someone's theory, be polite and courteous, don't flame or I WILL delete your comment.
