The cat is asleep on the bed. He doesn't know that it's Tuesday, nor does he especially care. But we do! What have you been doing?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

Today's question: Do you maintain multiple posting names (i.e. pseudonyms or "pseuds") for your work, or do you lump all your works together under one name?

Viernes: Action Movies

Jul. 21st, 2017 03:58 am
[identity profile] schweinsty.livejournal.com posting in [community profile] comment_fic
Happy Friday, everyone! I’m [livejournal.com profile] schweinsty, and let's end the week with a bang (perhaps literally). Today's theme is action movies; prompts can be anything having to do with action movies/action—a quote from one, a title, action tropes, fusions with, or even just set in action movie fandoms.

Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the spoiler cut.
If there are possible triggers in your story, please warn for them in the subject line!

Prompts should be formatted as follows: [Use the character's full names and fandom's full name]
Fandom, Character +/ Character, Prompt

Some examples to get the ball rolling...
+Star Trek AOS, Jim Kirk(/Leonard McCoy), fusion with Speed
+Supernatural, Dean Winchester + the grenade launcher, “This is my boomstick”
+The Musketeers, Any Musketeer + Group of Thugs, Curb-Stomp Battle

We use AO3 to bookmark filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and post it to AO3 please add it to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2017 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 1 (not very current), Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 2, or the Calendar Archives, or for more recent prompts, you can use LJ's advanced search options to find prompts to request and/or fill.

While the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheets and LJ's advanced search options are available, bookmarking the links of prompts you like might work better for searching for in the future.

Well, fuck.

Considering the spate of musician deaths in the last couple of years, it was only a matter of time before it claimed one I considered my own.

I was a late comer to the Linkin Park bandwagon; it wasn't until "Faint" from their 2003 album Meteora that I sat up and paid attention. I still remember my reaction to hearing that song for the first time, because hearing it now, fourteen years later, I have the same reaction.



IDK. It just got into my blood.

I've often said that music is the lifeblood of my creativity, and never has that been so apt as to when it came to LP. Their songs are all over my stories; hell, in my Daria universe, Mystik Spiral basically takes LP's career path. Both of my Daria stories feature LP songs; all of the fic I've written for that series (quite a bit of it unpublished) was originally named after one of their songs.

Early LP was the perfect fit for Inuyasha's anger and frustration with the world, and I had, once upon a time, planned to do a collection of stories based off of songs from Meteora. As the band's sound evolved, so did their ability to spark my inspiration. The last album I purchased was 2010's A Thousand Suns, the making of which more or less served to cement my 1000% crush on Mike Shinoda.

Learning that Chester is gone still doesn't feel real. I didn't believe it until I saw Mike's statement on Twitter, and I was absolutely crushed, especially for him. In all of their making of clips, you can see that they had a pretty special bond as the creative forces of the group. Chester was the soul of the band, and now that he's gone...

IDK. I don't know what they're going to do, how they're going to react, what's going to happen to their seventeen years of bandom togetherness. How can LP exist without their charismatic frontman? I found them late, but they have meant the world to me, even if I'm perpetually 5 years behind the times. I would listen to Chester sing the damned phone book - his talent was that phenomenal.

He was so young. SO young. I hope that he didn't take his own life, or that if he did, it was accidental, like Scott Weiland's sudden overdose. I have no expectation that this will bear out, but I just can't stand the thought of someone like him, who was so warm and positive and just really fucking amazing, in that sort of anguish and pain. He had a really difficult childhood, one that haunted him for the better part of his life, but he'd turned the corner over the last couple of years. The cycle was supposed to end with him, not end him.

My heart goes out to his family and his bandmates and to my fellow fans, a lot of whom relied on LP's music to bring them out of their own dark places. It was nice to be on social media when the news broke, to see the outpouring of grief and love alongside the slack-jawed astonishment. It helped, knowing I wasn't the only one whose day came to a sudden, abrupt halt, who sat there numb and fighting back tears. I read the responses to Mike's tweet confirming the death and almost came to tears again.

I hope Chester is at peace now. There will never be another one like him.
