Anonymous asked: Dom, because he's probably the saddest, most pretentious man in the world, has left a note on the break room white board saying: PLEASE DO NOT DO TRY THE CAVIAR PIE IN THE REFRIGERATOR, IT IS FOR STAFF WORKING ELECTION NIGHT. (SAME GOES FOR THE WATER CRACKERS) — THX, COBB.
NO JOKE: I had a boss MAKE THIS AND BRING IT TO A PARTY once and as it does in the story, it tasted like bilge water and onions and also SADNESS.
Anonymous asked: (I was going through your dvd commentary and, forreal, wayfinding is like the best fic ever and you should totes magoats think about finishing it someday)
…is this Leupagus? Secretly reading Supernatural fanfic? Because I literally know of no one else in the universe who uses the term totes magoats.
Also, I do love Wayfinding. I really hope I can pick it up again.
Anonymous asked: "But I wasn't ever able to get past the fact that he comes from a long line of scary motherfuckers who would kill me if I touched one hair on his head."Kirk looks bewildered. "Sarek's scary? How?""Not Sarek," Pike says, feeling the pang that's gotten easier even in the past few weeks, the familiar pain of a lost friend. "Amanda Grayson. If she'd found out I'd been despoiling her little princess, I'd have lost the use of my legs a long time ago."
HILARIOUSLY this one was a Leupagus line from our joint disaster masterpiece about baby’s arm dicks. But no I totally agree with her I’m pretty sure that Kirk lucked out that Sarek is the remaining in-law because Amanda Grayson would have seen right through him to his slutty, cockhungry heart and murdered him on the spot.
Anonymous asked: Dom's problems were never with if he loved Mal, if he were willing to do stupid things for her, take risks for them; but there's a chasm between the costs to himself and the levels of acceptable danger toward their children, and he's not sure he'll ever be all right with that, how cavalier and selfish she'd been and for how long. But he knows, too, that his life seems two-dimensional without her.
I think I gave Dom too much credit for being a good parent in Provenance, actually, if Inception is any guideline for how he handles decision making.
Anonymous asked: "This is Eames, of course he wants your attention," Dom retorts, because he thinks about Eames's rough little laugh and his hands hidden in his pockets and how hilariously tragic it is that Arthur can have no idea, none at all, how many gazebos Eames would burn down to get Arthur's eyes back on him. "Mal used to say that Eames would commit arson for your attention." And maybe the whole of provenance and/or presque vu, my favourites of all time!
Provenance was essentially a masturbatory exercise in my fatuous, sweaty cape-wearing nerd love for the art world. It’s so WEIRD and EXPENSIVE and I spent several years very seriously looking into art restoration masters programs before deciding I would rather set my face on fire than go back to school and also my 2 years of middle school French wouldn’t cut it for the Romance language requirements.
Fun fact: in my mind, Eames has definitely committed at least one arson, indirectly for Arthur’s attention. While he is mostly an incredibly suave forger and semi-thief, sometimes he is not an incredibly suave forger and semi-thief, and sometimes a well placed fire is his only option. Arthur must never know, because the housefire claimed a MONSTROUS Egon Schiele Arthur loves because he has terrible, terrible taste.
(Separately, I HATE Egon Schiele.)
Anonymous asked: Just reread this and cried. -- "You could never make me do anything, Bruno," Boots says to him, gently like he's afraid Bruno is going to run away like a child, which is probably a valid concern at this point. "You--I always chose to follow you, Bruno. You always said that I should and I never really said no."
That Melvin O’Neal is a heartbreaker and a half, ain’t he? Too bad for Bruno that this blond punk is the love of his life.
rannisuta asked: "Some days, between Souji's perpetually-smiling face and soft, awkward hands, Hijikata nearly forgets that he is honing a blade, that Souji is flawless and fine--that he's deadly. It makes him furious, frustrated, wordless, to see Souji pad into his room when the light is still gray and watery blinking sleepy-dark eyes and murmur about getting a pet when Hijikata has seen him with blood on his face, a blade in his hands." i love you forever and ever for writing fic for PMK, i really do.
PMK was a fandom built for people who like being punched in the face, seriously. I still have occasional flashbacks to reading that stupid manga and weeping on the pages and WHY DO I MAKE THESE CHOICES. Did that fanfic ever even get finished? Or does it just languish in fucking AGONY like all of its readers?
Anonymous asked: Touya still, as he always has, watches Shindou with a determined awareness. He takes note of Shindou's shifting and inconstant moods, the changes and patterns of Shindou's life, to which he bears unfailing witness, and records for his private understanding, wary of it for no reason he can fathom. From Inertia, please!
There a lot of people who really hate this fanfic, but I don’t care, I love Inertia. I love the slow arc of Touya realizing what and who Shindou is to him, and I even loved writing the horrible story of Touya’s poor wife and her post-partum. If nothing else, I think that story exemplifies the pervasive dangers of allowing yourself to be subsumed by a quiet life — you never know what’s bubbling just underneath the surface of your calm.
madecunningly asked: Two hours later, in a non-descript emergency room, with Dylan clutching one of his hands and gazing at him in deep concern and the Senator standing on the other side of his bed looking more than vaguely amused, Bruno says, "I'm not hurt. It was just an accident. I need a new phone."
There’s something really sad about this line, I think. This is Bruno being incredibly dissociated from himself and the absurdity of his own circumstances, just wanting people not to look at him so he can get on with his day, bury his head in the presidential sand.
Also, man, this was written so long ago I don’t even mention social media in this campaign. TIMES, THEY CHANGE SO FAST EVERYBODY GET OFF MY LAWN.
elelith asked: Sorry... Got excited about it - I won't do the other fics now considering I get crazy with one of them. Any chances of you doing another genderswap? You are epically good at them. Or even a someone-fathered-a-child fic... Oh well, as long as you keep writing I shall be happy...
There’s always the possibility for more genderfuck when it comes to me, although I’m unlikely to do kidfic unless it’s really purposeful. I really love, LOVE children, and part of that just goes into not wanting to write about people having kids unless they genuinely want them. I think most of the stories I could write with that through line would be way, way too self indulgent to entertain.
