I'm a Bit More Refined in My Recent Years Parts 3, 4, and Epilogue

banner_FriendsAU (2)

Title: I’m a Bit More Refined in My Recent Years
Fandom: show verse Big Time Rush
Pairings: James/Logan, side Logan/Dak, Kendall/Carlos, and Guitar Dude/Mercedes. Katie, Lucy, Jo, Camille, Jennifer Knight, and Arthur Griffin all make appearances.
Disclaimer: I own neither Big Time Rush nor Friends, even though I want both Carlos and Chandler. Title is from Drake Bell’s “It’s Only Time.”
Summary: BTR Friends!AU. The shenanigans of James, Kendall, Logan, and Carlos the day after Logan moves in with Kendall and Camille and reappears into James’ life. Pure PG-13 schmoop.
Author’s Notes: Thanks so so SO much to my amazing beta Angie (nditsjustmyself) and my fantastic artist Sonja (deadpetsparky). They had to put up with my flakiness and writer’s blockage and general ridiculousness. I LOVE YOU BOTH. Gold stars for the both of you! And, ohmigod, this crossover-ish-thing has taken over my brain, and seriously, my love for James/Carlos has been eclipsed by the intriguing pair that is Kendall/Carlos. And, erm, this turned out to be more ensemble fic than pure James/Logan.

Parts 1 & 2

The First Time Lucy Watched a Movie with the Boys and Camille

Title: The First Time Lucy Watched a Movie with the Boys and Camille
Characters: the BTR boys, Katie, Lucy, Camille, with slight James/Carlos and Camille/Logan if you blink
Rating: PG
Warnings: Vague spoilers for Stardust, if you haven't seen it
Word Count: 799
Summary: Saturday nights are movie nights. This is Lucy's first time joining the crew.
Authors Notes: So there's this new BTR community: btdrabbles, for which anyone can drop by and write a 100~ word drabble about any challenge that this baby community has prompted. I'm a bit of a dweeb, so what I initially had as a fluffy drabble kind of bloated and got up to 800 words. Eh, well. PIMPING.  


Lucy and Carlos share the same taste for swashbuckling fantasy movies.Collapse )

So, updates!

Things I have on my to-do list:

- I have finally FINALLY seen the Nickelodeon movie Rags and I am in love with it so hard. The songs are awesome and catchy, and I'm downloading them all as we speak, and all the characters are all so quality in it, I can't even begin to express my love for everyone involved in producing this TV movie. 

"Me And You Against the World" music videoCollapse )


Here is the trailer-slash-music-video for the end song "Me and You Against the World," which is awesome and beautiful and peppy and I have never shipped a canon couple this hard since Ron and Hermione. Also - pay attention to the tall, blonde guy in the dark blue shirt in the back. He's Lloyd and he's adorable and he dances his heart out to things because well, he loves dancing, and he loves Charlie, and he's got a heart of gold. And do you see the gorgeous short-haired girl dancing next to him? That's Tammy, who's even more awesome and giggly and the Voice of Reason in the movie, but in the best way possible.

And now I direct you to the in-show music video (it's titled "Behind the Scenes" because it's an extended cut; in the film, the music video was cut short because of technical difficulties). 

Keke Palmer's "Love You, Hate You" BTS videoCollapse )

Apparently, it's Kadee's least favorite song (in the movie), but I love it because she's so pretty and ridiculously fit and I've probably listened to the song about a dozen times now. ANYWAY, the important thing is the two girl backup dancers: Tammy, as seen from above, and the blonde, Sammi. They are a canonically legitimate couple, and everything is great.

- The reason why I bombarded you all with embedded music videos is because of this: I'm in the midst of writing two fic based on Rags, one about Tammy and Sammi taking Lloyd to a gay bar and introducing him to ALL THE BOYS, and the other about Finn and Shawn getting together. :D I have reasons.

- Another fic I'm working on is an Avengers one, which holy crap I'm nervous about because of the quality that AO3 and LJ has provided for all of my fannish delights, but I love Jeremy Renner so I'm going to try my darnest to do him justice. Anyway, it's based on Pink's "Trouble" music video, which he starred in as a slightly sleazy sheriff; Clint and Natasha are dispatched to deal with the Painted Lady, who's stirring up trouble in a Wild West themed town. Clint is the new sheriff, and wears eyeliner and obscenely tight tee shirts and carries around a whip rope, and Natasha joins the troop of badass lady followers of the Painted Lady. It's crack, but I hope the best kind. 

- Also, there's the BTR Big Bang in which I write FRIENDS-slash-coffeehouse AU for Big Time Rush, because I have a weakness for coffeehouse AUs and I apparently have a strong desire to ship James with Logan.

- Which reminds me, I'm working on (and have been, for the past I don't even know how many months) on a Jett Jackson inspired BTR AU - i.e. Kendall Knight finds himself ejected from the showverse universe into the real world, and has to suddenly deal with a cocky Logan, a sexy mofo Carlos, and the most endearing James, not to mention the realization that he is apparently in a sordid love triangle with Logan and his supposed best friend and fellow hipster Dustin.

...That's it, I think. Hur hur.

How Not to Fall in Love, by Mercedes Griffin; or, That Time When Mercedes Slept with Casper and Jett

Title: How Not to Fall in Love, by Mercedes Griffin; or, That Time When Mercedes Slept with Casper and Jett Because She Wanted to Stop Being Friends with Them
Fandom: showverse Big Time Rush
Pairings: Mercedes/Guitar Dude (Casper), Mercedes/Jett Stetson, implied Jett Stetson/Dak Zevon, side Kendall/Jo, side Camille/Logan
Disclaimer: Lots of swearing in this fic, kids. I own neither of the entities that are “Big Time Rush” or “Monkey Love,” which is great, because that means I can play around with my imagination and pretend that I’m dating Carlos.
Summary: AU. In which Mercedes does her hardest to get out of her rut, a rut that is nearly 100% because of her friendship with the two idiots in her life. That means engineering a plan to sleep with the both of them.

Author’s Notes: So I am slowly making my way through Jeremy Renner movies, and this one popped up on my radar because 1) Seamus Dever is a total dork in this and 2) there is this gifset of the sex scene The Renner has with the main girl and OHMIGOD. Anyway, so as I do, I started thinking of how I could write a BTR AU based off of this, despite the movie being…weird as a whole, except for The Renner being adorable and vulnerable and sarcastic. The main girl is all bitchy and self-involved and reluctantly falls for her best friend, and that led me to my second favorite BTR ship: Mercedes and Guitar Dude. You know you all wanted this.



Holy crap, I wrote almost 6K of Mercedes/Guitar Dude Collapse )

It's a Love Story

Title: It’s a Love Story
Fandom: Love and Other Disasters (2006)
Characters: David Williams, Peter Simon, Tom, Finlay McMillian
Summary: Quick little companion to one of my favorite movies. That brunch scene when David and Peter finally meet up and laugh over all the mistaken identity and misunderstandings gave me all sorts of feelings, and I wanted to write fluff from David’s POV, filling in scenes between that brunch scene and their eventual meet up in the train station.
Disclaimer: I own nothing, unfortunately, despite me wanting to have the contents of Jacks’ wardrobe and wanting to be best friends with Peter and Tallulah and have daily brunches and participate in all those meta conversations. Also, I am not British, and do not have a Brit-pick beta, so bear with me in any anachronisms and/or Americanisms.

Even more distraction from several fic just waiting to be completed

Shamelessly taken from redbrunja.

Come convince me to write you a story by leaving a character/pairing/prompt or just by gushing or giving me details about a story you want me to write. ANY story. As long as I, you know, have written/know the fandom.

And, um, I do have a bigger love of fandom than just Big Time Rush, despite my LJ's dominant love for it. Ha. Take a gander over at my tumblr and you'll see. :D

why I love fellow BTR lover Aarthi

So Aarthi, aka kasuchi, is AWESOME and the greatest cheerleader in the world. I was furiously (read: getting distracted by things like LJ and Facebook and…food) working on a paper due at midnight, and to motivate me, we made a deal: for every 150 words that I’d write, she’d give me a one-sentence BTR fic. And since they were all glorious and awesome, I decided to copy and paste them into an entry.


Here be one-sentence ficsCollapse )

koyote and the man I'm going to marry (here's to wishful thinking)

Oh dear god.

Every winter break, I always get hit with the Korean bug and go all crazy over Kpop music and rehash over all the crushes I had when I was in middle and high school, back when I was like OHMIGOD I'LL BE AS ANNOYING AND FOBBY AS POSSIBLE. Despite this being the first year of not going to Seoul for an extended stay with my cousins, I've managed - in the LAST WEEK of my winter break - to get bit again.

And you know why? Because of this beautiful face:



That, my friends, is Kim Jong Min. He's 34, and insanely funny, and part of the three-person singing group "Koyote," which is apparently known as a hip hop group? ::scratches head:: Anyway. Koyote is made up of one girl, Shinji, who is the female vocal, Jong Min, who is the male vocal, and Baek Ga, the resident rapper. (...Yeah, I don't know either.)

And what exactly has prompted this fall back? (Coincidentally timed with their music comeback after 5, 6 years.) ALL OF THEIR MUSIC VIDEOS AND LIVE PERFORMANCES THAT YOUTUBE HAS UPLOADED. Just look!




And this one! (So prettyyy.)




And now I'm halfway done with writing RPS about Jong Min and Um Tae Woong, an actor that is part of a reality show, 1 Night 2 Days, which, to succintly explain, is a Survivor-esque show about 5 grown men who spend an entire day and night completing crazy deeds in order to eat and sleep relatively comfortably. It's a lot funnier than how I'm describing it.

What is my brain?

(And don't worry, I'm working on looottss of BTR fic. Nod nod.)

Title: When You Smile
Pairing: Carlos/Kendall
Disclaimer: I own nothing, sadly, that is BTR or Nickelodeon or anything that isn’t my imagination running rampant. Title is from Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are.”
Summary: For the Harvestfest fic fest prompt #36: Carlos/Kendall - Kendall takes Carlos to a Harvest festival! With rides! And corndogs! And um. Snuggling!

 
Kendall wakes up to a sea of orange.Collapse )
