This really should've been one long chapter but didn't end up like that. The second part is coming soon! Also, thank you so much for your comments. I haven't replied to them all in the last two posts and I'm usually really diligent/obsessive about that so don't be surprised if you get a really late reply from me.

Also! The Queensland auction has ended and there were some ATWT fandom people who put themselves up for bidding (including myself) and you know what that means? New fic from people! Yay! Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] peggin for being an awesome crazy bidder and winning my auction and murgy for being not too far behind. Thank you and thank you to everyone who donated!

Valentine's Day Secret Admirer Extravaganza 2011!



It is that time of year again and it's time to submit your anonymous Valentine's for 2011. This year, I'm kicking it up another notch and opening this to IJ users! It's something that actually didn't occur to me until this year since this event has solely been on LJ for a number of years but IJ users are more than welcome to participate!

In case you don't know what this is then here are some basic rules:

• Let someone know (anonymously) that you admire them, secretly stalk them like them, miss their stories, love their stories, love their art, etc. The possibilities are endless. It's a really nice thing to wake up to on the morning of the 14th.

• Send as many messages as you want to whomever you want. This is about spreading the love, you guys.

• Please try to send your submissions already HTML coded! This is how you code for a LiveJournal Username: [lj user="username here"] just exchange the [ ] for < >. And if you know basic HTML coding, go for it! Try not to do it using Word because sometimes the coding doesn't transfer over. I'd suggest using Notepad.

• All submissions will be e-mailed here: amelia.lourdes@gmail.com

• The submission deadline is: MIDNIGHT, FEBRUARY 11TH, 2011. This gives me the weekend to work on them.

• ENTRIES WILL BE POSTED ON FEBRUARY 14TH, 2011.

• Questions, comments, suggestions, and contributions welcome! ♥

Example? You can e-mail me something that says:

[livejournal.com profile] amelialourdes: Thank you for being a big, bucket of awesomesauce.
[livejournal.com profile] amelialourdes: Please buy me lunch tomorrow.

If you want to take a look at past Valentine's Day posts you can go here, here, here, and here.

Spread the word one and all and thanks in advance for participating!

I thought I'd repost this here for my own reference. It's my gift for the [livejournal.com profile] qaf_giftxchnge held here on LJ and IJ. The link to it is here but you have to join the community (and I recommend you do!). That post is locked but this post here will be public. Hope you enjoy it!

To: [livejournal.com profile] abrokencompass
From: [livejournal.com profile] amelialourdes
Title: One Step At A Time
Gift Request: [livejournal.com profile] abrokencompass has requested Brian getting cancer while Justin's with Ethan.
Rating: R
Summary: Michael tells Justin that Brian has been absent from all of his favorite activities and that leads Justin to investigate. Canon applicable to late Season 2 and early Season 3. Hopefully this fulfills all gift requests for [livejournal.com profile] abrokencompass. Enjoy!

End of the Year Fandom Meme.

Meme #1. )



2010 Year In Review.

Meme #2. )

qaf 30 day meme: day 29 - 30 (bonus day).

I've absolutely loved doing this meme! Maybe there'll be another one in '20? Ha.

Day 29 - Your favorite QaF fanart (icon, wallpaper etc)

That would be anything by [livejournal.com profile] url_girl, [livejournal.com profile] raelala (as [livejournal.com profile] severina2001 mentioned), [livejournal.com profile] ohfreckle, and our original icon maker of all icon makers - [livejournal.com profile] paddies! I also loved the wallpapers that I used to have. Man, there was a whole site for it. They were all great.

Day 30 - Do you have any QaF related items? And if you could own one item from the sets, what would it be?

Well, of course I do! I have all the DVDs and the first DVD of the British series. I have the book in hardcover that I got the day it came out. I have a bunch of episodes recorded from Showtime. I have some screeners. I have a lot of scripts. I have a big S1 poster. I have something from one of the conventions. I have a matchbook, the calendars, fans, temporary tattoos, a shirt I got from one of the Planet Babylon stops in Vancouver. And thanks to one v. v. generous fangirl, BBC, I got me a pillowcase from the set! \o/ I think that's everything. That sounds like a lot.

God, what don't I want from the set would've been the better question, haha. Anything in Brian's loft.

Bonus Day - Anything QaF related - whatever tickles your fancy

I'm pimpin', haha. I'm gonna pimp my website qafcaps.com. It's definitely a labor of love. QaF and now Lure are my strongest fandoms and I'm just not someone who goes from one thing to the next. I kind of stick to one thing and that's where I'm happiest. I'd love to have some kind of archive site dedicated to our fandom. Still considering it and it's really a matter of getting some participation from some of the former fandom fans. It'd be nice is all I'm sayin'!

The Meme. )

And those are all the memes I wanted to get out before the new year!

I hope that everyone is having a safe, awesome night tonight. I'm not really big on it so I am here. Give me a chance to get caught up on everything. So, wishing everyone a fabulous new year and I'm sure that I'll be seeing you all around!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Fic: A Beautiful Mess, 10/?
Summary: Luke is a pediatrician! He is officially Dr. Luke Snyder.
Spoilers: References to Luke's past from canon and that's about it.
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: Wish they were mine but they're not.
Note: This was inspired by this entry in [livejournal.com profile] lure_prompts by the brill [livejournal.com profile] _alicesprings. Feedback, concrit, etc. welcome! ♥

And we're back! Completely flooded with some great fic and videos in [livejournal.com profile] noah_who. I also participated in [livejournal.com profile] qaf_giftxchnge for anyone's in that fandom. I'll be posting those links soon! I have to catch up with everything this weekend too, ha. Way behind. I know you guys have a lot of fic to choose from so just glad to anyone who's still reading! I really appreciate it. On with it. Next chapter to be posted tomorrow.

Chapter 10. )

musicandme: (qaf ; united (308))

First of all -- omg. This fandom never ceases to amaze me. I love fandom and I definitely love the people in it. That said, thank you so, so much to [livejournal.com profile] aurora_84 for being awesome and amazing and so, so generous! And another thank you to [livejournal.com profile] highd for their generous donations. I appreciate it more than you know and I am looking forward to keeping the site open and adding more to it in the future.

I certainly don't expect people to donate. I have trouble asking for that kind of thing but I know how incredibly generous fandom is and people have your back when you're in fandom. I do have that donate button on the page but I really don't expect people to give and like I said, it's difficult for me to ask especially since there have been previous (recent) moments of generosity. I do want to say thank you though and thanks for helping me with it. Thank you!

Now on to the Queer as Folk Meme since we're Queer as Folkin' it up over here. I don't think that I started this on the 1st of the month but I'm just gonna go with the days on the meme.

Day 24 - Your favorite QaF quote

I'm gonna go with an oldie but a goodie! Debbie: "Mourn the losses because they're many, but celebrate the victories because they're few." This just sounds like it should be a famous quote but I like the way that she said it, cheering up Emmett, wanting him to celebrate this victory even though he'd been sad because of what he'd been going through with Ted. Like I said, the end of S3 was pretty epic.

Day 25 - Your favorite QaF one-liner

Er. There have been many. "What kind of homosexual are you?" - "The kind that fucks men."
"I just saw the face of God."
"I like dick."

... and now I'm thinking about all the S1 quotes. There have been many. They were good for that.

Day 26 - Your favorite advice or wisdom from the show

LOL wisdom? Brian wants Justin safe. He wants him safe for a long time. That's all.

Day 27 - Your favorite QaF fanvid

Omg, omg. My very, very first QaF fanvid was on Tool Lunatics site and I still get wibbly when I think of "After All". It wasn't even the best but it was my first. But, I think (one of my) favorites will always be Affirmation by [livejournal.com profile] f1renze. It was perfect. That song was meant for the show. Also, Defying Gravity by [livejournal.com profile] bea_nonymous was meant for Justin.

And that video that used Plow Monday's "Blank" and then there was the SR-71 "My World" which still makes me weep whenever I think about it. I just loved our fanvids. I think I'm gonna have to break out that disc and watch them all.

Day 28 - Your favorite QaF fanfic

HELLO, WHO DO YOU THINK YOU'RE TALKING TO HERE? I AM THE ULTIMATE SUCKER FOR QAF FANFIC ESP. OLD SCHOOL FIC.

Okay, I hold the title with [livejournal.com profile] url_girl and most of my flist but still. I love everything here. There. That's my list. As if I could pick a favorite. It's not happening.

The Meme. )

musicandme: (qaf ; united (308))

Behind, behind, behind.

Day 17 - A scene that makes you angry/pissed you off

There are a few but one in particular stands out. During the cancer arc when Michael and Justin are talking and Michael says, "DON'T TELL HIM THAT YOU KNOW." And then two seconds later, when he's weeping like two-year-old on the floor, he says something like, "I don't want you to die!" Oh. My. God. Fuck you, Michael. I've never wanted to punch someone more than in that moment. It isn't all about you. Surprise, surprise. And yet Justin gets punished for it? Christ. What Michael said in 301 about leaving Justin to die made me punchy but I felt satisfied since Brian punched him in the face (and shouldn't have forgiven him that easily).

Day 18 - Something that you wish never happened

Uh, how about? Let's get married ... PSYCH. JUST KIDDING. WE'RE NOT GONNA DO IT. I've never been so high on happy fumes and brought down faster than fast. I didn't want to see them split up at the end even though now we're supposed to "know" that they're together. I'll take what Randy says more than anything Cow Fucking Lip will say so I'm content knowing that he thinks that they're together in the end. It's not as if I was ever unsure. I'm not. I just didn't want to see it.

Day 19 - Something that you wish happened but didn’t

I wish that S4 and S5 was kept as consistent as the previous seasons but they didn't. I wish that they wouldn't have let real life influence THE LAST SEASON OF THE SHOW. I wish that [livejournal.com profile] lady_jane's Inferno actually happened. The Bestie actually brought me to that story and it became our new canon. The way that she made Justin react to the Brandon incident was just true to life and that would've been the more realistic approach but y'know, people get stupid when they think they have power. Cowlip.

Day 20 - Your favorite Debbie t-shirt

Oh man. I forgot the episode but it was like, seen the show, read the story, done the musical? Something like that. It had the word musical in it. Therefore, that shirt was made of win.

Day 21 - Your favorite outfit worn on the show

Oh my god. Brian in that suit when he was getting sued by Kip. It was that fitted shirt, the long brown coat, and fitted pants. He just looked so long in that suit and hot. Oh and of course THE PANTS that Gale had to get sewn into during the party for the Senator. Oh and Brian's red -- okay, a lot of Brian's outfits.

Day 22 - Your favorite song from the show

How do I pick just one? One of the thing things about fandom was finding all the songs that they used in the show. I gave up in S5 but many of the songs in the previous seasons have been fantastic. I mean, I say "Filthy Mind" and you know what I'm talking about. But there's also Rufus Wainwright's Poses, Sketch by Kurt Swinghammer, Wild Sweet Cool by Crystal Method in 205. A lot of great music.

Day 23 - Your favorite place
This question makes no sense. I changed it.

Day 23 - Who's Your Favorite Trick?

I have two! I love the art kid from the episode where Jennifer takes Justin to the art gallery. God, I wanted to see them get it on in the bathroom. Then, the second is the waiter from the episode where they throw the Senator a party. Brian took him up the stairs, they started making out in the hallway, AND I WANTED TO SEE MORE.

The Meme. )

musicandme: (cmas ; decor)

Thank you so much for the adorb santa bears [livejournal.com profile] plasticine_star and [livejournal.com profile] suzvoy. Still in the Cmas spirit because of them! Suz even provided awesome Ethan and Reid fic within the v-gift. That was a gift by itself! Hope that you're feeling better [livejournal.com profile] plasticine_star! Thank you for the candy cane [livejournal.com profile] colorthenight. Did you get my gift? Thanks ladies!

musicandme: (cmas ; decor)



Say what? What is this? Well, honestly, drinking hot chocolate and eating gingerbread men definitely put me in the mood for Christmas but you know what else does? Fanfic. Nothing says Christmas like fanfic written for the holiday. I'm pretty sure I holed myself up one year to just read and read and I do hope that you do the same. Or if you don't, just glance at the names and enjoy the nostalgic kick to the past!

A gigantic, ginormous, huge thank you to the v. v. talented and awesomesauce [livejournal.com profile] url_girl for making the kick ass Cmas graphic! I also direct you to her past awesome icon contributions here, here (made for the Snowin' and Blowin' Challenge), here, and here, here, here, here, and here!

THE LIST:

1. [livejournal.com profile] bigboobedcanuck brought us the 12 Years of Christmas and this is so my canon forever and ever. You just spend year after year with them and it's like you're a fly on the wall.

2. E and E brought us the 12 Days of Christmas in which they take us on a journey that you can only take with Brian and Justin.

3. I spend every year with Rizabeau's epic Sugar Plum Fairies. I hear that. Don't laugh. It's not epic as in the best thing that I've ever read and you have to ignore the "baby's" and long, long passages that are probably difficult to get through. But, you know what? I don't care! There are adorable babies in it, more in-character moments than out of character moments, and it brings together the whole gang featuring Brian and Justin, of course. How wrong can that be?

Part One
Part Two
Part Three

4. There's Danny's Gift Gabbing which I haven't read in a while. But, if you like that furniture series, the Jealousy series (WHICH I LOVE), you'll enjoy this!

5. Randall has a series of Christmas related fics here that I will always rec out just because. I'm a fan of The Other Side of the Fence. That has some ... holiday themes in it.

6. untitled!Christmas fic by [livejournal.com profile] windtossed right here. Short but sweet.

7. [livejournal.com profile] reinabelle's Mistletoe and Ho Ho Ho because CHRISTMAS SMUT WITH CHRISTMAS LOVE AND HOW CAN YOU RESIST THOSE COMBOS?

8. [livejournal.com profile] severina2001's Of Comfort and Joy. You know what [livejournal.com profile] severina2001's fic feels like? It's like, sitting with a mug of warm apple cider, grabbing a blanket, and settling in comfortably. It's like that. This one has scrabble and Brian and Justin being epic. What else do you need? Oh, I know. More fic from her! A Non-Traditional Christmas Feast aka [livejournal.com profile] amelialourdes' heart clenches like a clenching thing. The Truth in which Justin is hungry. You'll see.

9. [livejournal.com profile] mclachlan has Wreck of the Dayhere. Brian doesn't do Christmas. Psh, yeah right.

10. [livejournal.com profile] suzvoy (I knew you had one!) has Quack which is totes not a Christmas story ... except it totes is.

11. Last and not least (not like any of these were in order of epicness) was the Snowin' and Blowin' Challenge. Geocities died and took our beautiful fic with it but it was pretty much the most awesome challenge done for the holidays. Pretty much. Many, many wonderful pieces of fanfic came out of there and if I sat here and described them all to you, I'd be here all night.

So, how about you just look through them and enjoy that holiday feeling that washes over you.

You can download it here: Snowin' and Blowin' Challenge - Fan Fic. It's a .rar file so extract it to open the files!

That should keep you all occupied for now. More to be added when I have time to go through the wonderful helpings that our fandom gave to us. Enjoy these!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!

musicandme: (cmas ; decor)

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I have about a million and a half thank yous to distribute but first let me say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and every other denomination or non-domination there is! Hopefully you are all enjoying some kind of nice vacation even if it's just been a day and a half off like me. Hee.

I've been busy at work so I haven't really had a chance to sit down and play around on LJ. I will be doing that tomorrow for sure (if I'm not too busy playing Epic Mickey which is, indeed, EPIC). But, like I said, I have a million and a half thank yous to say here even if I haven't answered you personally (yet) I hope you guys read this.

Thank you so, so v. v. much to my wonderful friends who've left me a v-gift and made my profile just that much prettier: anonymouse (hee) holiday cookies and more holiday cookies from the awesome [livejournal.com profile] suzvoy and [livejournal.com profile] on_the_ground. Thank you for the v. holiday festival drink, [livejournal.com profile] ayesakara. It is fabulous, bb! Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] friday82 for the awesome snowman cookie ... that I wanna eat whenever I look at it, haha. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season, bb! Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] severina2001 for being epically awesome always and for the adorable santa bear! Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] peggin for the adorb santa bear! He is precious. Last but not least! thank you to my friend [livejournal.com profile] ohfreckle for the precious festive penguin! He is indeed festive and I heart him and you for it! So many ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ for all of you!

And many ♥'s for all of you for just being here! So grateful to you all for being awesome.

Special, special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] highd who I definitely owe an e-mail to but thank you so, so, so, SO much for the donation to qafcaps! It was so generous of you to do that and thank you so much for wanting to keep the website up. When the time comes to renew it, I know that I will definitely be using it. It was really such a wonderful thing and I'm so, so grateful for it. Thank you again!

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] rockie2010 for thinking of me and making me a Brian and Justin fanclip vid to Michael Jackson's "Give In To Me". I grew up on the Dangerous album so that's one of my favorite songs of all universal. Thank you so, so much!

God, just looking at this list, I know I've been a really spectacularly crappy LJ friend lately, lol. But, on the other hand, you guys have just blown me away that I'm thought of at all so thank you again everyone so much for everything! I love having you guys here and I hope that you're getting some well-deserved rest and presents!

Much love to you all! ♥
