Thanks for taking my poll everyone. :) The results were quite interesting (to me, at least) and oddly enough, fairly close to what I expected.

On a vaguely similar note,

[ profile] mac_hearts_pc

Which just goes to show, if something exists, someone's probably written slash about it on the internet.

Did you guys know that Citizen Kane is not so much about one man's rise and fall from power as much as the breakdown of Charles Foster Kane's big gay love with Jedediah Leland?

I mean, think about it. They were "close in school" *winkwinknudgenudgesaynomore* and then they go and start up a newspaper together, and Leland is still totally in love with Kane, right? He's practically slobbering all over Kane's declaration of rights thing.

Then, later on, during the dancing scene, Leland's all jealous and stuff of the can-can dancer Kane is dancing with, and he can practically sense that Kane is pulling away from him. Then Kane goes away on vacation and comes back engaged, and Leland doesn't look happy for him at all, just kind of depressed.

After Kane loses the election, he and Leland have a separation, and Leland's drunk because it was bad enough that Kane went out and got married on him, but he also cheated on his wife with another girl too, and being numb was better than the pain. So Leland decides to go to Chicago to get away from Kane and so that he doesn't have to see Kane every day and feel bad about what he can't really have anymore.

When they see each other again for the first time for years, Leland's still jealous as fuck of Susan, and while she does suck, he's got extra vitriol for her just because. Also, Kane's hurt and angry at Leland because despite their separation, he thought their relationship had meant something, and in his hurting, he fires Leland. Then, in order to make it final, Leland shreds the check and returns the "present" Kane gave him a while back, and the breakup is official and angsty and tragic.


That's totally the story Welles was trying to tell.

(Also there was stuff in there about Rosebud and the need to be loved, whatever the fuck that was.)

I hate Econ 113 so much, omg. I'm taking the class pass/fail, and I'm still worried about it.

First major exam tomorrow. It's Math, which shouldn't be too bad, I just haven't studied at all for it. Also, I still have Math homework to do, so I should really be making my way through my English. Like, now. Of course, its a linguistics essay, and yeah. I can't wait until the weekend. A Clockwork Orange is playing at the Avon, that should be pretty cool.

On a completely different note, I think I'll be cross-posting fic here as well as [ profile] parrotfic, except at [ profile] parrotfic, you don't have to listen to me whine about how much Consumer Theory sucks. (No, it really does! The Cobb-Douglas utility function is one of the ugliest things I have ever seen.) I might post smaller bits and pieces of fic there that I won't post here. Maybe. I'm still not quite sure how I'll be using it.

On a somewhat related note, I posted my New Year's Resolutions fic:

Title: Not Gay
Fandom: The Office (UK)
Pairing: Tim/Gareth
Summary: Gareth Keenan is not gay.
Notes: For Halrloprillalar, who wanted "drunken awful regrettable slash". I did my best.

You know I've had my brain eaten when I write this much in this short an amount of time.

Title: Failed experiments in fluff, angst, and other things
Fandom: FMA. I swear I'm going to write more HP in the future. I think.
Notes: 10 Roy/Hughes themes. In which I have little too much fun with writing snippets that don't like to end themselves. There's no consistency between themes. They're just sort of thrown together. Unbetaed cause I'm feeling lazy.

Title: Maybe Tomorrow

Word Count: 3,937
Feedback: The best thing evar. Flame away, even, if you feel like it.
Disclaimer: I own nothing and make no money. It's all Square/Enix.
Notes: A rockstar!AU that takes place in Tokyo. "Heavily inspired"* by Lost in Translation. No, it's not self-indulgent and gratuitous at all. Title stolen from a Stereophonics song. Once again, lots of love to [ profile] crazythorn for reading it over.

Kain = Fury. Just in case anyone was wondering.

Another note: I sorta want to get more beta readers. [ profile] crazythorn is teh awesome, but I'd like to get more opinions. Any volunteers to become one?

Feedback: The best thing evar. Flame away, even, if you feel like it.
Disclaimer: I own nothing and make no money. It's all Square/Enix.
Notes: Part I.

Betaed by the sehr awesome [ profile] crazythorn. This was something of a surprise, as I generally don't do sequels, but there's so much about the war that I didn't get a chance to explore in the first part. And I made a cover because I was bored and messing about with Photoshop.

Feedback: The best thing evar. Flame away, even, if you feel like it.
Disclaimer: Don't own anything. I make no money. Etc.
Notes: Follows the manga canon, mostly, as I know in the anime that Hughes wasn't actually at the war. There's some anime stuff thrown in there as well.

Much thanks to [ profile] crazythorn for the beta.

Title and lyrics come from the Bob Dylan song. Yes, I know that's cheesy.

This is part of my Bob Dylan multi-fandom fic(let) project. Basically, one Bob Dylan song - one fandom. Over 500 words and incorporating a few lyrics. So, yeah, this is my first one. I reserve the right to leave large blocks of time between ficlets if I do so desire. This is probably going to be the last one for a while. I do have [ profile] rsficathon to think of.

Ok, so I figured that I should post my random steaming piles of crap that I label "fiction" in my journal as well as other communities, if only for posterity.

Title: Minutiae
Author: [ profile] thedeadparrot
Pairing:S/R, duh.
Rating: PG, not much stuff.
Spoilers: Through GoF
Disclaimer: I make no claims (or money) on the characters, situation and other stuff in this fic. It’s all J.K. Rowling’s.
Summary: A day in the life.
Feedback: Hit me with your best shot.
Notes: This is my first HP fic. Written in a weirdly experimental style. You really don't want to know the geekiness that inspired this. Nope.
Thanks to [ profile] librae for looking this over and giving me heaping loads of encouragement.
