So JGL retweeted someone linking to a song of his with a <3 and there is enough adorbs there to hold me for a long time -- but wait! It gets better! Because the song is apparently something he wrote in college for a French literature class.


Am I the only one in paroxysms of glee picturing this? Joe. French. Poetry. Singing. College. IT IS EVERYTHING GREAT IN ONE PLACE. And it leads to amazing fic places!

I mean, first of all, any fic where we get bb!Arthur studying French poetry is destined for greatness. You could have prof!Eames or dorm roommate!Eames (who mocks French poetry, no doubt) or fellow student!Eames (who gets into a battle with Arthur over the last copy of de Musset or whatever and there is antipathy and lust). You could have 10 Things shout-out fic where Arthur pretends to speak French to tutor that sort of thug-looking guy with the tats who is flunking out of French 101.

And then there's Steinway!Arthur, who has to take a 200-level literature class for his degree and chooses French and promptly spends a semester being broody and dark and playing a lot of Ravel and Debussy.

And, since my high school AU!Arthur is rly just a very poorly-disguised Joe avatar, there could be sequel fic in which they are in college together and Arthur gets obsessed with Camus and becomes acquainted with the canon!Arthur yet to come.


Realism, Keller Debate, and Rodney the Fag

So, a lot of the lovely readers leaving feedback on my last story are saying something to the effect that it seems "realistic" in one sense or another. At first, I thought maybe this was because some of my past offerings have involved straight-making machines, gates that take people's clothes off, and chemicals in the water supply that make everyone pair off and start breeding. But then I thought about it some more, and realized, as I told [ profile] lamardeuse, that probably people are reacting to the number of references I made to bums and poo. What could be more realistic? This is clearly a case where being mentally 6 years old has actually made people think of me as somehow more "adult". Ha.

What I didn't intend to do, having been somewhat out of touch with fandom for a while, was to wade into the apparent battleground that has evolved around the character of Jennifer Keller. While I didn't really love the character (except for about 5 minutes when it looked like she was going to make Ronon smiley and sweet), I didn't especially dislike her either, and I honestly didn't really know that there's been an ongoing division among SGA McSheppers about how to treat Keller in post-series fic. I suppose this fic, though not planned as such, is my own position statement with regard to her; and having written her and Rodney out of my mind, I don't actually plan to write McKeller ever again.

I know you have all read [ profile] toft_froggy's 1950s girls' boarding school AU (and if you haven't, you should, dammit!) but I've been thinking about how great it would be to have a boys' boarding school AU, now that we know all about John's moneyed heritage. Maybe it should be set in England in the 1930s and Rodney could be a student one or two forms below John so he ends up being his fag (I kid you not, this is an actual English boarding school term) and having to clean John's study to his exacting standards and make him toast and warm his bog seat before John uses it every morning. (And okay, I'm lifting 99% of this from Roald Dahl's Boy, you know) And wee!Rodney would be so delightfully resentful and his big mouth would keep getting him in trouble with John and John's peers and John would make a big show of how he had to punish his fag with a caning and John would close them both in his study and slap his cane against a cushion and roll his eyes because it's not like *wanted* to beat Rodney. And near the end of the year, after they'd gotten to be sort-of-friends (but secretly, because John is so much older and cooler), right before John is about to leave school and head off to Cambridge -- then he'd corner Rodney and with blushy seventeen-year-old cheeks and ears, he'd kiss him on the mouth and tell him not to let the other blokes push him around. And then, it would be 1939, and Rodney would be working on developing British fighter planes and he'd bump into John, who was a newly minted officer in the RAF, and Rodney would be all grown up and pretty as hell and John would be serious and handsome in his starchy uniform, and -- and...

Okay, I'm calming down now. But wouldn't that be great? Someone go and write it. It sounds like too much work for me.

For no apparent reason, I'm rewatching SV S3 and I just have to say...I still love this show. Mostly because of the pretty, it's true, but I do!

Also, has anyone written spoilers for Lexmas )

Rec me or prompt me...

toomuchplor: (one of those days)
So I find myself in the startlingly unfamiliar position of having a couple of (mostly guilt-free) hours in which to procrastinate.

I feel fannish but am at loose ends as to what to do. So, someone rec me! SV or SPN (but nothing that spoils the latest SPN, as I am sadly behind the times), gen, het, slash... just something good that makes me smile lots.

Or, alternatively, give me a prompt. Yes, I know I should be writing Constellation, but I really don't have the patience to bite into that big cookie right now. Something short and fun and possibly porny.

Pretty please?

Okay, okay...

Three Balls and a Baby needs an epilogue. Except I really think it should be less of an epilogue and more of a wee ficlet in the same universe.
