It's been kind of a shit day so here's a photograph:

and here's a bit of dialogue-only ridiculousness to go with it, originally a comment fic at [livejournal.com profile] canis_takahari's place:

Hey it cheered me up a little.

Thanks to everyone who enjoyed these drabbles and all the Rymon this season. It was a great year! I'll be posting more—I'm working on some giant smutty thing—but here is the final, and only NC-17, drabble.

I Need You So Much Closer. In which Simon and Ryan take advantage of an 8-hour time difference, a lunch break, and a morning erection.

Woe for the end of the season!

There will be a bonus final drabble coming soon!
jlh: Chibi of me in an apron with a cocktail glass and shaker. (Ryan and Simon get a gold star)
Since this is a little late (the top 6 part 2 results was giving me fits) you get a bonus early drabble. Enjoy!

Top 6 Part Two: Never Wash You Off My Face. In which Ryan gets a special present.

Top 6 Part Two Results: Well You’re Already in That Cage, Baby; You Built It Yourself. In which Simon protects what's his.

Top 4: Your Voice Across the Line Gives Me a Strange Sensation. In which Ryan explains how the rules work.

Guys, I cannot believe there are only two weeks left and only seven more drabbles to write!

How strange, when editing the template I use for each week's performance recap, to not be taking a name out of the list! I usually wait for the recap to post the drabbles but Jacob is running very late this week. I've poked at this a lot, particularly the one for the Idol Gives Back results show, for obvious reasons. But hopefully, you will enjoy; as advertised, they're rather sentimental. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] dana_kujan, whose comment about their body language on stage gave me a way into the second drabble.So I watched Ryan on Ellen (I missed Simon, woe) and the one interesting thing he said while he was avoiding Ellen trying to get him a girl (awkward!) was that Simon said he'd only go to Africa if Ryan went with him! Friends, they are so in love.

I'm sorry, guys, but the more I thought about the fight in the top 7 performance show the more I felt that Ryan wasn't really mad, so there's less angry/makeup sex as there is a reference to such. Actually, I've noticed that Ryan, really, is like this rodeo clown that trots out to distract Simon-the-bull from the riders (singers) when things get a little too dangerous. I don't know why I never thought of this before; perhaps because Joe R gets so annoyed with it and refers to it as Ryan just being contrary to Simon. But the more I think about it, the more I think it's really Ryan trying to keep Simon from being really nasty to the singers by taking the nasty on himself, and he does it all the time.

All that said, I ended up converting anxiety about my paper into a fic inspired by some excerpts posted from Simon's book, and my usual Rymon beta, the excellent [livejournal.com profile] ladyjaida, is as stressed by end of term as I am, so while I'm sending it to her as a treat, I'm not asking her to beta. Dana, Meg, interested?

I wrote two drabbles this week, one for the performance show and one for the results. They're a little sexier this week.I signed up for this [livejournal.com profile] 26_drabbles challenge, where there's a prompt for each letter of the alphabet, since right now I'm already at 20 planned drabbles. (I've written 13 now, and there are 6 more performance shows and the unveiling of the winner.) I'm sure I can get something out of American Idol Cares about Black People, so that's 21. 7/5/4/3 results gets me to 25. Going back to the semifinals results I didn't write about gives me a cushion of two more in case any of those 4 are a half hour results show (because seriously, you can't get enough Rymon for a drabble off a half hour in which they squish a celebrity performance or two and the results and the Ford ad). With prompts like kiss, unbearable, jealousy, angry, fear and (heh) panic, I'm pretty unconcerned that I'll be able to match up the drabbles to these prompts.

In other news, I watched a great American Experience on Jim Jones and the People's Temple (google it if you have no idea what I'm talking about). I was just old enough in 1978 for the whole thing to freak my shit out, especially with all those kids who were wearing those weird 70s tank tops and flared jeans just like me. It turns out that Jones decided to move to Redwood Valley, CA from Indiana due to a list published in Esquire in January 1962 called "Nine Places to Hide." It was a list of nine places that would survive a nuclear attack, and were:
  1. The central valley of Chile
  2. Guadalajara, Mexico
  3. Mendoza, Argentina
  4. Christchurch, New Zealand
  5. Melbourne, Australia
  6. Malagasy Republic
  7. Redwood Valley, California
  8. Belo Horizonte, Brazil
  9. Cork, Ireland

Also I made a ton of icons today, and if I knew how to put them where other people could see them, I'd share, only I'm not awesome at icon making anyway, so you know, feel free to check them out!

Well, friends, here are a few drabbles and links. First, some Idol things:
  • Top 9 Drabble from yours truly, incorporating a conversation I had with [livejournal.com profile] dana_kujan. The really funny line? It's hers.
  • Jacob's TWoP recap is up (I always need to check the recap before I write the drabble) and I think he's been reading Hunter S. Thompson. He converts his hatred of the white male power structure that the constant harkening back to the American Songbook, and Tony Bennett himself, represents to him by deconstructing the entire boring show, including a long exegesis of the shift from friends of Dorothy to folks that are queer as well as a throwaway reference to Ryan giving Simon an "insouciant handjob." It's brilliantly strange, or better yet, strangely brilliant, threatening to flop over into incoherence before righting itself with wry self-awareness.
  • The AMG recap is also up, wherein our music experts predict that that Blake absolutely is the Daughtry of season 6, right down to being the probable overall biggest seller post-Idol, even though he never should have sung "Mack the Knife." They also agree with us that the show was boring and Tony easily the worst mentor yet.
  • In case you missed them, my other must-have recaps from the snarky but pop-loving music nerds at Idolator: Tuesday and Wednesday.

In addition, I wrote a Snape/Lily double and a half drabble at the request of [livejournal.com profile] ali_wildgoose, who stumped me earlier. No title, not really beta'd. Takes place immediately after Snape's Worst Memory:Snape/Lily. Very G. )

For similar reasons, about 250 words of Seamus/Dean requested by [livejournal.com profile] amyamy. A real ficsnip from something I'm working on, so also un-beta'd. In the EWFS-verse, takes place about four years after they've left school—two years after "Re-Union":Seamus/Dean, with special guest appearance by Parvati. Also very G. )

Happy Monday!

Last week a debate broke out (well, not really a debate, since the "debaters" agreed) about the relative merits of the two TWoP Idol recappers, Jacob and Joe R., with comments running in favor of Jacob thanks to his crush on Ryan. Well, y'all should be pleased with the recap, which is pretty much dripping with Ryan-love. The drabble for the week, thanks to the influence of both Jacob and [livejournal.com profile] dana_kujan, centers on Ryan's superpower, which is to be the most adorable jack-booted thug ever: Sometimes You Make Me Want to Build a Model of the Eiffel Tower out of Belgian Waffles (scroll to the end).

Grading is a very frustrating thing, I have to say, though I'm sure that comment is very unsurprising to the teachers on my flist.

I wrote two drabbles in [livejournal.com profile] silverbookworm's excellent post, here and here.

I have been to the beach twice and am now quite tan.

And now I'm off to dinner and a show.
jlh: Chibi of me in an apron with a cocktail glass and shaker. (David and Keith from Six Feet Under)
I don't have a rainbow icon so I'll just use David and Keith. Only in New York, kids (as Cindy Adams likes to say): Tomorrow we'll have the pride parade and Billy Graham. Sublime to the ridiculous, and you can guess which I'd say is which.

Today I was working on a story and had to cut a sequence of dialogue to help the flow, but I really liked the sequence itself. I pasted it into another window and realized it worked pretty damn well as a stand-alone drabble. So here's a racy little bit of Harry/Draco for pride, dedicated to the incomparable [livejournal.com profile] titanic_days. Sasha, as you'll see, I could only find the March/April issue and was vexed.

Car Talk. )

Man, I'm grouchy. My phone got busted this weekend so I ran out to get a new one--just a little cheapy, I don't need anything fancy. Well, I left it in a fucking cab last night. I guess I'll just have to get another cheapy when I get back home later today. It could have been worse; I could have lost my ID or my wallet, and lots of people just gave me their numbers again so there wasn't much in that phone to be lost. But still, annoying.

Speaking of annoying, is there a reason that people have to manufacture wank where there is none? No wonder we can't have a civilized discussion around here any more; two friends have a polite and respectful debate and suddenly there is side-taking and general silliness. Please, people.

I read the rest of Fruits Basket Vol 7 last night and this morning. Uo-chan reminds me of [livejournal.com profile] bhanesidhe especially now that I've read all that groovy backstory. Val is, of course, fucking awesome. But I owe [livejournal.com profile] tea_and_toast some drabble )

Man, no new Veronica Mars last night. What a week.

I post this with trepidation, as maybe no one will want to drabble off me! (Never mind that everyone is doing this meme.) But I am working a lot right now and having something to take my mind off when I take a little LJ break, as I am wont to do. I also find this interesting as I cannot, of course, write a drabble at all, because everything I write is really long. So anything that happens here is bonus!

Here are the first lines. Go ahead and drabble me in the comments, and extra points if you know which are which!

First lines! )

*is hopeful*
