gyzym: (TROPES IN YOUR TROPES)
So! You have stumbled upon my journal. If you're here for the fic, congratulations! You've come to the right place. If you don't know about the fic: hello! I am [livejournal.com profile] gyzym, and I write fanfiction. Most of it is slash (male/male) fanfiction; if this is not your cup of tea, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, HEAD FOR THE HILLS.

All right, now that that's sorted, here's how this works: fic is divided by fandom and 'verse. Links and summaries and pairings are here; every link takes you to the top of the page in question, where you will find ratings, warnings, author's notes, etc. Please do not read anything rated R or higher if you are not of age where you live.

Hawaii 5-0 )

Inception )

Sherlock Holmes )

White Collar )

Harry Potter )

Veronica Mars )

On the Topic of Tags:
Yeah, um. I find it hilarious to use inane, random tags on my posts. Because, um. Because it is hilarious?

In any case, the tags that I use to streamline fic posting are (probably) all attached here.

On the Topic of Full Disclosure and Credit Where Credit is Due
Full disclosure: the username is an Allen Ginsberg reference; the journal title is from an e.e. cummings poem.

Additionally, I do not own any of the characters I play about with in my fanfiction, nor do I own most of the titles of said works--they're pulled from song lyrics, by and large. I'm not making any money from this, I have no intention of doing so, I claim no ownership of anything, and I don't mean to cause distress/offense/copyright infringement.

On the Topic of Problematic Elements in My Fiction
Should you find something, whilst reading one of my stories, that offends you/is incorrect/could offend others/is in any way problematic, please please please do not hesitate to tell me. I will never spew hate at you, I will never attack you, and I will always thank you for taking the time to let me know.

On the Topic of Non-Fic Things Discussed Herein
Sometimes I talk about my family! They're crazy, but generally in a hilarious way. Because my name, like it or not, has become Jizz/Jizzy (I really didn't mean to name myself after semen, I really didn't, I THOUGHT IT WAS AN INNOCENT ALLEN GINSBERG REFERENCE OKAY, I WAS YOUNG) a hilarious conversation ended up producing the following names for my brothers:

Burro Punch/Burro: My 19-year-old (frat boy) brother
Burrito Punch/Burrito: My 11-year-old (sixth grader) brother


Because...donkey punch...and ito is a...diminutive...anyway. THE POINT BEING, if I am referring to Burro&Burrito, they are my little brothers :D

Additionally, I have a non-fandom blog over on blogspot, called Illegible Address. It makes a concentrated effort to make it amusing; I'd love it if you guys felt like checking it out! Look, there's even an easy-click button:



On the Topic of Friending
By all means, feel free to friend me. Everything fandom related is public, and so is most everything else, though I don't post much that isn't fandom related these days. I always like meeting new people! I don't always friend back, which is NOT about you, but rather my utter inability to be responsible and proactive about replying to emails/notifications/whatever. It's a character flaw.

If you DO friend me, please do me the favor of dropping a hello into this post. I want to know what you're about! Also, I am often distracted by writing gay porn, and sometimes it takes me ages to actually pay attention to anything other than my bajillions of open Word documents. By which I mean: oh, god, you guys, I can be really terrible about answering comments, but that does not mean I am not a) reading them and b) feeling INSANE GRATITUDE towards anyone leaving them. I just, augh, I get all bogged down in writing and then it's been too long and I feel like an asshole and THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR ME, I AM SORRY.

Tl;dr summary? I'M KIND OF FLAKY SOMETIMES, BUT I DO ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOU ALL ♥
gyzym: (T.Hard w/ cig and skepticism)
Ahahaha, fixed my internet, and then [livejournal.com profile] rrrowr did me a solid (THANK YOU RO THANK YOU RO OH MY GOD THANK YOU) and then I was all, what do you want? And she was all, Arthur/Eames wallsex! And for whatever reason, though I've been blocked on these two for seriously months and months and fucking months, this actually happened. I don't know if/when it will happen again, and my sincere apologies if it's not for awhile--I SWEAR TO GOD I'M TRYING WITH THESE TWO, THEY JUST. Oh man, when they don't talk to me they really do not say a fucking WORD, I don't know what to do with them.

So, uh, right, here's 1500 words of drunk Arthur/Eames established-relationship-ish kind of size kinky PWP? Like, seriously, PWP, and also glossing over the whole most-drunk-people-have-trouble-getting-hard-thing and oh, god, I don't even know, you guys. My apologies for the errors that are probably herein, this is an insomnia fic, and also for the terrible title, and also for the fact that after months of nothing on this front what came out is...this. Augh I don't even I'm going to go try to sleep now RO I LOVE YOU THANK YOU AGAIN.

Dangerous When Loaded, 1500 words, Arthur/Eames, NC-17 )
gyzym: (Open road)
Ahahahaha oh my god, it's a WIP titles meme, totally ganked from [livejournal.com profile] sorrynotsorry et al. THIS SAYS A LOT ABOUT MY WRITING PROCESS: to wit, that it is a mess. These are actual titles of actual documents, and I actually know what (almost) all of them mean. Also, enough of them contain parentheses--in the RIDICULOUS DOC TITLES THAT ARE NOT ACTUALLY FIC TITLES--that I had to differentiate my comments by putting them in brackets. In conclusion, fml fml fml.

Seriously, this is solid proof that I'm out of my mind )

TO SUM UP: run from me now, I am obviously not good for anyone's health, least of all my own, and oh god please do not hold me to producing any of these, the end.
gyzym: (Flowery neck)
THIS IS A POST RECCING VARIOUS THINGS THAT NEED RECCING, NATCH. (Sidenote: the other day my mother sent me a text with the word "natch" at the end, used correctly, and I was like, hey, where did you pick that up? "I made it up," she says. "It's an abbreviation for naturally!" WHAT EVEN.)

First and foremost, [livejournal.com profile] winterlive wrote Inception fic. It's called Get Lost, and it's 13K of Arthur genfic, and if you are one of those people who tends to read only within your pairing, I urge you--no, I implore you--to read this anyway. It is quite literally the best character study of Arthur I've ever encountered, and follows his journey across the country post-Inception as he ties up some loose ends and figures himself out. It's about growing up and going home again and not going home again and loss and strength and learning and who you end up being while you're not paying attention, and, oh, god, it's incredible. I just--you need to read this story, you guys. It's one of those that leaves you stunned and breathless at the end, that totally changes your viewpoint on the character while reinforcing it at the same time. SO. GOOD. Go forth and be amazed.

SECONDLY, [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing has made a post explaining what it is about Hawaii 5-0 that is so damnably addicting, because she's apparently not content with dragging just me into this fandom kicking and screaming. IT IS EXTREMELY COMPREHENSIVE AND VERY CONVINCING, but if anyone would like a quick and dirty summary of the show, my own is as follows:

-Steve's a ninja
-Danny's pissed
-THEY'RE SO MARRIED
-Jersey joke
-Hnnnnng Grace Park
-Hnnnnnng Daniel Dae Kim
-SERIOUSLY PLEASE JUST ADMIT THAT STEVE AND DANNY ARE MARRIED
-No understanding of or apparent concern about how laws actually work
-Jersey joke


I have had it confirmed by others that this is accurate. (Also over at [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing's journal is The Inception Anon Love Meme, which just fills me with warm fuzzies every time I look at it. ♥)

THIRDLY, [livejournal.com profile] emilianadarling, who is BEYOND AMAZING, did a podfic of my story Don't Feed Me, Seymour. For those of you keeping track at home, that was the one where Arthur is the worst cook ever--er, well, the one where Arthur is the worst cook ever that isn't part of domesticverse, I like that trope, okay??--and it is WAY, WAY, WAY BETTER as a podfic. [livejournal.com profile] emilianadarling's delivery is spot on and hilarious, and it's just awesome. I was grinning the whole way through in absolute joy and glee that anything I wrote could inspire something so fab. You guys should all check it out.

Finally, [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub's big bang is up, which, yes, I know that you know, and you probably think that I am biased because I beta read it, BUT WHATEVER. You still need to hightail it over to All the Rules to Break and read it at once. Serial killers and cops and the FBI and oh my god Arthur and Eames. The emotion is pitch perfect, the plot is a brilliant ride, do yourselves a favor and get over there post-haste.

OKAY, I'M OFF TO WORK ON THINGS that hopefully are not Hawaii 5-0 fic but probably will end up being Hawaii 5-0 fic anyway fml fml fml. I hope you all are having fantastic Thursdays :D
gyzym: (OMG TOM HARDY'S SMILE)
OKAY SO I COME BEARING DOMESTICVERSE THINGS. The first is the floorplan for their house in South Pasadena, which I've been wanting to draw up forever. BE ADVISED: I COMPLETELY HALF-ASSED THIS BECAUSE THE SOFTWARE I WAS USING HATED MY GUTS, AND SO I STOPPED LIKE...ADDING FURNITURE AFTER THE KITCHEN AND THE BED. Also, ignore ALL of the dimensions on this thing, I am *not* good at that kind of thing and didn't even guess as much as I like. Just drew it how I thought it would look without consideration of size. BUT:

Domesticverse floorplan )

Secondly, I...uh...wrote a domesticverse fic. Only this is this new thing I've been wanting to try for ages now: a domesticverse sidestory. These are basically going to be shorter stories that aren't in order with the master timeline/aren't as important to the ongoing plot as the main stories are/are too ridiculous to work into a bigger story. Basically they're little moments as opposed to...you know...plot builders. I'm still angsting over how the hell to tag them on Ao3, but this is the first one.

This particular story is Arthur & Eames' first New Year's Eve as a...couple type thing :D That means that, timeline wise, this is set in between "between my reflex & my resolve" and "this life looks good on you."

Happy New Year, guys! ♥

Title: so this is the new year
Rating: PG/PG-13
Wordcount: ~2550
Summary: On the one hand, they've been…whatever they are…for six whole months, which is probably long enough to trust that Arthur means it when he says Eames can go. On the other hand, it's only been six months, which is not nearly long enough for Eames to take it on faith that Arthur isn't testing him somehow.

so this is the new year )
gyzym: (Red house)
So, uh, before I do anything else, I have AN ENTHUSIASTIC REC. The truly incredible [livejournal.com profile] wandrinparakeet did a fanmix for the domesticverse, and, just, YOU GUYS. This fanmix is just like. jdfdskf AMONG OTHER THINGS, ABOUT HALF OF THE SONGS ARE ON MY *PERSONAL* SOUNDTRACK FOR THAT VERSE, and the rest of them are INCREDIBLE, I've listened to nothing but this mix all day. I am just so flattered and so floored, and it really is some fabulous music, and she did gorgeous liner notes to go with and I am just. I AM A BALL OF LOVE. Trust me, GO DOWNLOAD IT.

And now for some information that I found extremely jarring, and some thinky thoughts about it!

The Year in Fic Meme! )
gyzym: (Arthur's on a beach)
HELLO HELLO INTERWEBS.

I apologize for being a little MIA, shit has been busy etc etc holiday parties etc etc limited time etc etc OMG YULETIDE all of things etc etc etc etc. I have a lot of things to say! But, first and foremost, I would like to let everyone know that (drumroll please):

I HAVE NAMED MY BROTHERS.

Yes, it's true, everyone clap, I know you are as thrilled as I am about this. AND EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT, I am deeply relieved not to have to keep typing out "the nineteen year old" and "the eleven year old" every six seconds. And I guess I should probably...tell you...the names. So, uh, basically what happened is [livejournal.com profile] two_if_by_sea suggested I call one of them Donkey Punch because she's hilarious and horrifying and stuff, and then that mutated into:

Burro Punch/Burro: My 19-year-old frat boy brother
Burrito Punch/Burrito: My 11-year-old sixth grade brother

You know, because burro means...donkey and "ito" is an...affectionate diminutive...okay anyway HURRAY FOR CATHY! I will probably mostly be calling them Burro and Burrito, TBH :D BUT AT LEAST THEY ARE NAMED NOW.

Speaking of my brothers, the other night Burro and I got high and he unwittingly outlined a hilarious Inception fic with me. )

So, you know, that was the best ten minutes of my life.

And now, because it's been ages since I posted fic and I feel legit bad about that (although I am working on things I swear I am) here is a WIP dump!

1200 words of unfinished top!Arthur PWP )

2,000 words of...um, drunk blowjob porn )

That coffeeshop AU drabble that I posted on Nellie's AU thinger awhile back )

And a coffeeshop AU drabble never before seen by the internet )

Will these coffeeshop scenes make it into the coffeeshop sequel? Er, maybe. Which brings up the question: is there going to be a coffeeshop sequel? Er...probably. BUT I DON'T KNOW WHEN, GUYS, IT MIGHT BE MONTHS FROM NOW, DON'T HOLD ME TO ANYTHING, OKAY?

Also I'm working on this other thing. I'll tell you guys about it soon, when it's done. For now, I have a Yuletide to write (oh god) and nails to paint and, hopefully, coffee to drink. HAPPY SATURDAY, GUYS :D
gyzym: (T.Hard w/ cig and skepticism)
1. Ahahahahahaha, so I woke up this morning to SEVENTY FIVE EMAILS from various points in the last week because apparently Gmail hates me, so if I owe you a comment response/email, I AM SUPER DUPER SORRY, I WILL GET ON THAT STAT.

2. APOLOGIES FOR HOW I LIGHTWEIGHT VANISHED, I WAS ILL AND THEN I WAS...ER...LAZY AND ILL? BUT I AM BACK NOW.

3. I've pretty much spent the last week mainlining Psych, largely because jdfnjdkfhdjskf James Roday. His face! His hilarity! His perfectly pronounced Spanish, Jesus fucking Christ. And, also, hello Dule Hill, I have missed you and your gorgeousness desperately since I crushed on you during The West Wing (which, I mean, seriously, that show as a young teen, do not even get me started--it was all, "Bradley Whitford! Rob Lowe! Dule Hill!" and I was all, "I am not even quite old enough to understand the wish to be in my bunk, but...but I think that's where I want to be"). Do not worry, though, Inception still holds my heart; I am currently writing one Psych fic and, um, I believe 15 Inception ones, so have no fear.

However, for the record, it's not like you can blame me, because these men? VERY ATTRACTIVE.

You know that's right. )

4. OH MY GOD I AM SO BEHIND ON FIC WRITING MY MUSES WERE ASLEEP ALL WEEK BECAUSE I WAS SICK AND GROSS AND NOW I FEEL BETTER AND AM BACK IN MY COFFEESHOP AND GOING OH MY FUCKING GOD WHAT I HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHINGGGGGGGG OH MY FUCKING GOD, SO, YOU KNOW, THERE IS THAT.

5. Happy Chanukah, fellow Jews on my flist! Happy first week of December, everybody else! ALL THE HEARTS FOR YOU GUYS. ALL OF THEM. ♥ ♥ ♥

6. EDITED TO ADD: I HAVE JUST REALIZED THAT BETWEEN MY ICON, MY MOODTHEME, AND THESE PICTURES, THIS POST FEATURES PHOTOS OF TOM HARDY, JGL, DULE HILL AND JAMES RODAY. CLEARLY THIS SHOULD BE MY NEW GOAL IN EVERY POST.

gyzym: (T.Hard w/ cig and skepticism)
Er so. The things is I've been working on this Hollywood AU on and off for months because my brother, who knows not what he does, sent me this article about, among other things, how Inception is a metaphor for film making. And, of course, immediately I was like ARTHUR IS THE PRODUCER EAMES IS THE ACTOR OH MY FUCKING GOD I NEED TO WRITE THIS. Because, you know, I have no self control.

And anyway this is the first 10K and normally I don't do the whole WIP thing but OH MY GOD I NEEDED TO GET THIS PART OFF MY FUCKING COMPUTER IF I WANTED TO GET THE REST DONE, so, uh. Sorry. I apologize. For the WIP-ness. The rest should be done soon.

Also, A Disclaimer: What little I do know about the film industry is culled from a torrid on again/off again relationship with watching Entourage and, more importantly, the year I spent dating a film student in college. I spent a lot of time on college film sets! I spent a lot of time in college cutting rooms! But I DO NOT ACTUALLY KNOW HOW IT WORKS IN HOLLYWOOD. Much of this could be very, very, very wrong, and I used some ~artistic license~, and I make nooooo claims that this is how this industry actually functions. None. Okay?

Also, a DP is a director of photography, or that dude or dudette who, you know, films the movie.

gyzym: (Wait for the kick)
So, once upon a time [livejournal.com profile] two_if_by_sea and I had this conversation in comments on...something...about this awesome band called Why? and I was all OMG THEIR LYRICS and she was all OMG SO MANY FIC TITLE OPTIONS (I am paraphrasing here) and we started throwing lines back and forth. And she said "I'll see you when the sun sets east/don't forget me" and I said, you know, that line makes me want to write a story about Arthur and Eames getting stuck in limbo and searching for each other, and then I got distracted by other things and forgot about it.

...and then, uh, today I wrote it.

ETA: Now with breathtakingly gorgeous fanart by the fantastic [livejournal.com profile] staticlights. Seriously, it's just...it's just stunning, oh my god.

gyzym: (Arthur's on a beach)
Some things in no particular order:

1) So, [livejournal.com profile] xxdoublexx finished that draft I told you about, and drew some other scenes from the coffeeshop AU as well, and I am posting about it here in addition to that other post because IT WOULD BE A SHAME IF YOU MISSED THIS. Seriously, it so gorgeous that I cannot even, you guys. In a similar vein, [livejournal.com profile] ravyn_ashling drew ARTHUR IN HIS OWN ADORABLE BEANIE, and also I am the luckiest person in the world, I am still so bowled over by the love and response and just. Augh, you guysssss! ♥

2) I apologize for the fact that it's been like, a whole week since I posted fic, because I know that is a long time for me and stuff. I'm working on it! I just, I have these two domesticverse fics that I want to do but both of them want to be Eames POV and I'd FINALLY gotten that 'verse evened out POV wise and if I do three more there will be eleven fics in that series instead of just the ten and, you know, assorted sidestories, like I was originally planning, AND TEN PLEASES ME MORE THAN ELEVEN, and, um. None of this makes any sense, but I'm on it, yes? And also in theory the film AU, I'd really, really love to get past my writer's block on that one, if I could just pound out this one scene I'd be all set, because the rest would write itself, I know it would. BUT I AM WRITING A LITTLE CRACKY THING AND A BUNCH OF OTHER THINGS AND THERE WILL BE FIC SOON, I SWEAR.

3) HELLO AND WELCOME, NEW PEOPLE ON MY FLIST! There are a mystifying number of you, and I am deeply deeply flattered and very excited to get to know you all, but concerned that you may not understand that I am most sincerely out of my mind. As such, please be advised: I am, most sincerely, out of my mind. Should you decide to stay on anyway, be warned in advance that all I do is post fic and occasionally really ridiculous other shit, and also whatever you've heard about me is probably true, only, you know, more and worse. Especially if what you heard about was my insanity and my abysmally foul mouth :D

4) DEAR WEATHER, SUCK LESS, LOVE JIZZ

5) I did some. Um. Original...um. Would you read a novel that started like this?  )
gyzym: (Tom Hardy wants YOU)
Okay so what this is, right, is ME POINTING TO ALL OF THE OH MY GOD WTF HOW SO AMAZING ART people have done to go with the coffee shop AU which, just, seriously, you guys. I do not deserve you. I DO NOT DESERVE YOU AT ALL FDFNDFJDNSFKLJSDNFJ. I said it to Aja last night and I meant it: I am so overwhelmed with love that I cannot even breathe.

1) [livejournal.com profile] sandrocks did this COMPLETELY GLORIOUS ARTWORK WITH ARTHUR AND EAMES AND FLOUR ASJDDSDKF. It is, seriously, so beautiful I could actually weep. And then she posted ANOTHER EQUALLY AMAZING PIECE in the comments and just. I just. Arthur is blushing and Eames and I just, I honest to god cannot even handle the amount of love.

2) [livejournal.com profile] pen_pistola drew this OH MY GOD SO ADORABLE scene with Eames and Arthur sharing coffee and brownies and I just. I cannot look at it without grinning, I want to write odes and sing terrible love songs completely off key to it and her and EVERY FANARTIST EVER, OKAY.

3) [livejournal.com profile] red_rahl drew CHIBI!ARTHUR AND CHIBI!EAMES WEARING THE BEANIEEEEEEEEE AND ARTHUR IS SITTING ON A MUFFIN AND EAMES IS LEANING ON GIANT COFFEE AND THE HEARTS IN MY EYES ARE ACTUALLY A MEDICAL CONDITION NOW, PEOPLE ARE STARING, AND THAT'S A LINK TO WHERE SHE POSTED IT IN THE COMMENTS OF THAT FIC BUT REST. ASSURED. THAT I WILL SWITCH IT TO A PERMALINK IF/WHEN SHE POSTS IT ELSEWHERE AND JUST JSFDFJSDKFDSKF.

4) [livejournal.com profile] jacquise, who is a barista in RL (and let's just take a moment, guys, to THANK ALL THE BARISTAS WHO KEEP US IN COFFEE, because for real they are the best people ever), ACTUALLY WENT TO WORK AND MADE ARTHUR'S LATTE. I just. I seriously did actually squee aloud when I saw it. Just, I just. Oh my fucking god, how did all of you fabulous people come to exist, was there some kind of like, did you just spring into existence to improve my life??????

5) [livejournal.com profile] xxdoublexx did DFDSKJFLSDFJKDSLFJ THIS AMAZING DRAFT THAT I CANNOT LINK YOU TOO BECAUSE SHE WENT AND LOCKED IT BECAUSE APPARENTLY "IT IS JUST A DRAFT" EVEN THOUGH IT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DRAFT IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. So this is basically a placeholder for the finished version.

ETA 11/5/10 OH MY GOD I AM THE LUCKIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD PEOPLE ARE STILL MAKING ART:

6) [livejournal.com profile] salvamisandwich drew THIS AMAZING VERSION OF THE HEAD MASSAGE SCENE. EAMES' APRON IS PAISLEY, YOU GUYS. It, just, and the expression on Eames' face and they both look so tired and it is JUST HOW I PICTURED IT BUT BETTER OH MY FUCKING GOD.

7) [livejournal.com profile] pearljamz drew ARTHUR AND EAMES AND ARTHUR'S LAPTOP and, you guys, for serious, the level of detail in this is stunning and the way they're looking at each other and Arthur, go at once, GO AT ONCE. AHHHHH ALL THIS BEAUTY IS SO OVERWHELMING I MAY FAINT.

8) [livejournal.com profile] sandrocks/[livejournal.com profile] onthecount PAINTED (DO YOU SEE THAT WORD, THAT WORD IS PAINTED, JUST IN CASE WE ARE NOT CLEAR THAT MEANS SHE PAINTED IT OH MY GOD OH MY GOD) a MOTHERFUCKING SMALL VICES BAKERY HOLIDAY CARD. I JUST. I CANNOT EVEN. I HAVE SURPASSED GLEE AND GONE INTO SOME KIND OF LIKE. STUNNED. AMAZED. FDSFJDSFDSFHDSJFDHSJFSDHF STATE.

9) leightonton over at deviantart drew ARAIDNE AND YUSUF AND ARTHUR AND EAMES and they are ALL so beautiful, all of them, every last one, but oh my god Ariadne especially. She, just, this whole thing, I seriously do know these are the most incoherent recs in the world but for serious, you guys, I am SO IN LOVE WITH EVERYTHING THAT I CANNOT EVEN EXPLAIN.

ETA 11/7/10: SERIOUSLY OH MY GOD WHAT HOW AM I SO LUCKY HOW IS THERE MORE:

10) [livejournal.com profile] xxdoublexx finished that draft I told you about, and also drew the scene with the BEER SINGING and and and and and THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DEPICTION OF THE SCENE WITH ARTHUR FREAKING OUT EVER EVER EVER, IT IS WAY BETTER THAN THE FIC AND IT WOULD BE A SHAME IF YOU MISSED IT. Seriously, it so gorgeous that I cannot even, you guys.

11) Guys. Guys. [livejournal.com profile] ravyn_ashling drew ARTHUR IN HIS OWN ADORABLE BEANIE, do I really need to say anything more than that?

12) [livejournal.com profile] norinoricat drew ARTHUR WITH THE BOX OF PASTRIES AND HE IS SO ADORABLE I CANNOT EVEN DSFJDSJFDSJFKDS.

SHOULD THERE BE MORE ART, I WILL BE ADDING LINKS HERE. IF I HAVE MISSED YOUR ART SOMEHOW, PLEASE TELL ME, ALTHOUGH BE PREPARED FOR ME TO JUST FALL OVER DEAD OF JOY. I SERIOUSLY DO THINK I AM GOING TO EXPIRE OF JOY. I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH I CANNOT EVEN.

PLEASE TO BE SHOWERING ALL THE BRILLIANT, BEAUTIFUL ARTISTS WITH LOVE, Y/Y?

gyzym: (CARE BEARS)
OKAY LOOK I RECOGNIZE THAT I AM BASICALLY JUST SHAMELESSLY SPAMMING YOU GUYS NOW BUT. BUT BUT BUT.

[livejournal.com profile] angelgazing wrote fic, and I just, I need you all to read it, okay? Because Arthur and Eames are at a fair and there are Ferris Wheels and A ZERO GRAVITY RIDE and deep fried beer and sunblock and just. Just. I have this thing, okay, about the way she does Arthur and Eames, about the way they are always such perfect assholes in love and there is so much JOY IN THIS FIC and HER ARTHUR VOICE and I laughed and I cooed and I SHRIEKED IN GLEE, OKAY.

I just, I mean, seriously. Even if you hate fairs and all happy things in the world, this fic is worth reading for the dialogue alone. THE DIALOGUE ALONE, YOU GUYS. OKAY, WELL, AND ALSO THE SHEER HILARITY. I mean, just, look, LOOK AT THIS BEAUTY:

"Fuck, fuck, you are demented," Eames tells him, shaking his head. He goes to take another step and falls into Arthur chest to chest, pushes him against the wall and holds him there with his weight. "My legs feel like jelly," he says, because he's an asshole who is never going to let Arthur forget the first time they slept together.

GO. GO FORTH AND ENRICH YOUR LIVES. GO FORTH ON MY WORD, FOR I WOULD NOT STEER YOU WRONG. DID I MENTION ABOUT THE DEEP-FRIED BEER? DID I MENTION ABOUT THE LOVE?

Ride On With the Lights On. Trust me.
gyzym: (JGL with guitarrrrr)
Okay, so, um, you guys, this is the thing: my personal life is in the shitter to degrees I cannot even explain, this has been up there in worst weeks of my life, and despite it I am doing okay. I am doing okay because the amount of love and support and just dsfjdkf I have gotten from you for this coffee shop fic is literally KEEPING ME SANE. There are just. There are nine pages of comments, I don't even, and every time someone pipes up to tell me that they enjoyed it my entire life gets so much better.

THANK YOU, YOU GUYS. I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH, I REALLY, REALLY CAN'T.

And I was just, I was thinking about that and then I was listening to this song [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing sent me last night that is literally the musical summary of that story (it's the last one on this mix, in case you were wondering), and I thought, well, you know what, I might as well make a soundtrack. Because, you know, the least I can do is offer you guys some free music in exchange for my sanity :D

So, uh, without further ado or some such thing:

I've Got Nothing To Do Today But Smile: The Soundtrack )
gyzym: (Sleepy!Arthur)
OH MY GOD, YOU GUYS, THE OUTPOURING OF LOVE FOR THAT COFFEE SHOP THING, I CANNOT EVEN. THANK YOU SO MUCH, YOU HAVE MADE MY MONTH, AND I APOLOGIZE FOR THE FACT THAT I AM NOW GOING TO FLOOD YOUR FLISTS WITH RANDOMNESS. IT IS A VERY POOR THANK YOU.

That said:

Some navel gazing on the topic of original fiction )
gyzym: (JGL with guitarrrrr)
THE COFFEESHOP AU, IT IS FINISHED.

So, uh, disclaimer first and foremost: I work for a mid-sized corporate law firm, but in the marketing department. I don't know shit about shit, and I don't claim to know. Anything I've gotten right in terms of Arthur's job is entirely due to the most excellent [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan, and anything I've gotten wrong is totally my own fault.

Also, this story is my love song to [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing, my tribute to the baristas who keep me in free coffee, and an (early?) birthday present for [livejournal.com profile] bookshop. And, also, the title is a nod to Paul Simon, because who doesn't love that guy? Except, you know, Art Garfunkel.

ETA 1: OH MY GOD OH MY GOD NOW WITH ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL FANART BY [livejournal.com profile] pen_pistola AND MORE TO COME FROM [livejournal.com profile] xxdoublexx YOU GUYS ARE MUCH TOO GOOD TO ME PLEASE TO BE SHOWERING LOVE ON EVERY FANARTIST EVER AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

I've Got Nothing To Do Today But Smile (The Only Living Boy in New York), 1/2 )
gyzym: (Tom Hardy wants YOU)
Okay so, in order to tell you that story, I have to tell you this story:

I work at a law firm (in marketing, MARKETING I TELL YOU, I make no claims of having any legal prowess whatsoever), and I have developed this friendship with one of the name partners, who I am going to call McPartner for the sake of not, uh, revealing identities. Basically, we bonded over a mutual love of David Foster Wallace and now he gives me reading assignments and sometimes we talk at great length about the idiocy of people and/or films I need to see, and he's deeply amused by the way I never take his shit. IT IS NOT IN ANY WAY SEXUAL, I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT RIGHT NOW--he's married and a very upstanding guy and also like 40+ years older than me, it is not that kind of thing. TBH, I think he's decided I'm the Liz Lemon to his Jack Donaghy [ETA: Lmfao, [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing has pointed out that it is in fact possible to ship Liz/Jack, so y'all are just going to have to take my word for it, okay? WOULD NOT TOUCH THAT WITH A TEN FOOT POLE, FOR SERIOUS]. IN ANY CASE, he came by my desk on Friday and we had the following conversation:

McPartner: Did you get that book I told you to get yet?
Me: What book? I finished Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself, I told you that.
McPartner: No no no, I mean [name of book redacted because AUGH I FORGOT THE POST-IT AT WORK AGAIN].
Me: ...You never told me to get that book.
McPartner: Yes I did!
Me: Nooo you didn't. I do actually take your reading assignments seriously, even if they do distract from things like, you know, working for you.
McPartner: You know, there are people who are terrified of me.
Me: Shame I'm not one of them, isn't it? Do you remember when you told me about the book?
McPartner: Of course I do, it was...uh...
Me: ...
McPartner: ...okay, maybe I dreamed that.

There was loling, and then I wrote down the name of the book and went about my day. And then TODAY--and keep in mind that I have had extensive conversations about Inception with this guy, because, you know, it was awesome--this happened:

McPartner: Did you finish the book yet?
Me: OH MY GOD IT'S ONLY BEEN TWO DAYS
McPartner: Well, to be fair, in my brain it's been a lot longer.
Me: It's not my fault you can't manage to have these conversations with me in the waking world.
McPartner: Well, I was three levels under.
Me: LOL. The inception didn't take, try harder.
McPartner: Actually, hilariously enough, a friend of mine just went to see that movie, and he'd had a hard day and fell asleep for the first 30 minutes. He called me after and was like "PLEASE EXPLAIN." Can you imagine?
Me: Oh my god, it would be incomprehensible.
McPartner: Why's that guy bleeding in a corner? Is--what's the silver box? Did those stairs just...oh my god, why is the hotel rotating???
Me: DON'T THINK ABOUT ELEPHANTS.

Inception: the more you know.

(ALSO: THE COFFEESHOP AU IS ACTUALLY FOR REAL THIS TIME GOING UP TONIGHT. I'M AT THE PENULTIMATE SCENE AND IT'S ONLY 7PM. IT. IS. HAPPENING.)

(ETA: OH ALSO LOLOLOL I INSTALLED A JGL MOOD THEME LAST NIGHT AND THEN FORGOT TO USE IT. WHOOPS. I HAVE NOW FIXED THAT.)
gyzym: (ROBERT)
Okay, and by "I'm going to post Robert Fischer fic in a bit" I obviously meant "I am going to post Robert Fischer fic in less than an hour." I don't even know how this happened. Despite the stated pairings, this is mooooostly Robert genfic, but only mostly. Title is from a fantastic Jack Gilbert poem called Tear it Down, and [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing totally found it for me.

Title: We Must Unlearn the Constellations to See The Stars
Pairing: Robert/OMC, Robert/Saito
Rating: R
Wordcount: 2673
Summary: Even in your dreams you never quite try hard enough. Even in your dreams you never get it exactly right.
