Title: Blue Curtain
Pairing: Bering & Wells
Summary: A small bed isn’t always a bad thing.
Note: Because sometimes I’m told to write porn.
I can’t decide if this is the best anon I’ve ever gotten, or the worst. :) It is, of course, referencing this ask/answer from last night during my honesty hour game, that I have trouble writing explicit erotica because it comes out sounding like an instruction manual.
My answer to this ask? a) PPPTH. I’m blowing giant raspberries at your face. b) NOPE, because I recently went through a dry spell, and the writing didn’t get any better. (Is 3 weeks a dry spell? I was getting cranky, and the spousal unit was worse than I was.) and c) PPPTH. :)
(But seriously, I’m trying to write a sex scene in a much bigger fic, and while it’s still fairly wooden, I’m starting to get the hang of it… a little? We’ll see when I finally finish the fic and post it. The problem is that I’m a very visual person and so want to write it like stage directions — I’m not great at finding the rhythm of the movements in my writing so much as explaining what happened, which is not a lot of fun for anyone. But I’m working on it.)
Oh, silly anon, didn’t you read the rules? I’d answer anything “with the exception of like my full name and address and whatnot”, and I’m putting the spousal unit’s name in the whatnot category. Because while I clearly don’t have problems posting my own picture, I call the spousal unit as such for reasons. Like anonymity, and privacy, and because this is MY tumblr, and not, as typey likes to refer to the SU, the hummus’s. I will never post a picture of anyone else or give out personal details without their permission.
But you want a hint?
Well, anon, thanks for this message! I’m feeling pretty good about it! I think I would be even MORE awesome if this damn cold would go away, but otherwise? Pretty good.
And I think YOU’RE awesome anon. :)
OH shit typey, what did we decide? I was on the left, so that made me the pilot? I don’t remember, but the jaeger that typey named “Destroyer Zed” is totally awesome. It can parasail. For realz.
I’m not sure if I consider any of them WEIRD, just adventurous. I’ve had pretty public outdoor sex in the folk festival campground, and had the spousal unit’s hand up my dress during speeches at a friend’s wedding (thank goodness for long tablecloths). Um, the side of a mountain in Peru? But we were in a tent. The desk in our students’ union offices? But it was night. None of those are really weird. At least not to me. Maybe someone else would say differently.
OH! How about in a teepee, in November, when it was really cold and there’s snow outside the teepee but there was no fire inside, and we were the only two girls and surrounded by like, 15 drunk and passed out guys? OH and I totally forgot about the hotel stairwell with this guy that I met at a school conference, and then we finally ended up in the university owned van. That one was fun.
Um, tmi? I blame the cough syrup.
I read a LOT of fanfic, and I still love reading some of my old favourites from het ships, but I don’t really seek out many new ones. Like, I still love Caskett, and will still return to Nate/Sophie, Hardison/Parker/(and sometimes Eliot), Josh/Donna, Kate/Jack, Juliet/Sawyer, and a few others… but NEW ships? Pretty much all my new ships are femslash. I’m not discounting new het ships, it’s just not really what I’m interested in right now. They’re so… boring. And yet, I identify as somewhere in the middle, and so I’m sure I’ll swing back eventually. Maybe.
OMG anon, you’re the best.
The only one I’ll fully answer is Carmen Sandiego, because mizzy2k told me of her headcanon once where Sophie Devereaux had an alias of Carmen Sandiego, and I have never accepted a headcanon SO FAST.
As for the rest… it’s clearly just because I’m awesome, clearly, and then far too many, because I always end up using my teeth. :)
eta: It’s been pointed out to me that two of them are song lyrics, which after being told, I promptly realized. The answer is still that I’m awesome. Clearly.
Oh man, reading a story that’s rated E that’s not drives me CRAZY. Or like you’re reading something M, and finally you get to it — the characters SWEAR. Or there’s like, a mention of violence or something. Seriously. That is not what those ratings are for. :)
I’d really like to be able to write GOOD explicit erotica, because any attempts thus far have ended up sounding like an instruction manual. HOWEVER, I’m working on it, and while it’s not REALLY explicit, I hope to get there one day. YEP.
baaaaaaaaaaaskerrrrrrrryyyyyyyyyyy *jumps up and down to ‘I don’t wanna go…..I don’t wanna go…..I don’t wanna gooooooo…to bed…with a man’*
I mostly just want to point out that you forgot that last part of the lyrics, there, which is “from town”… though I will accept your lyrics too. :)
I really love your dumb questions there, alak. :)
But no, Moose are shy animals and are not often near my city. They’re mostly quite a bit further north than where I am right now. HOWEVER, when I lived a bit more on the outskirts of the city, I often had deer wander into my yard. That’s fun.
Well, I HAVE already managed to brainwash most of you to tag “ellaphant” whenever they reblog elephants, and same with people tagging “lunatic roadshow” whenever there are minions. Both of those things make me VERY happy.
But really, the best is when I see either flailing or longer intelligent tags on something original that I’ve done. Getting comment fic or really just anyone responding to something that I’ve created or written about or written tags about makes me happy. I think it makes everyone happy, which is why whenever I reblog things, I make sure that I don’t just tag ‘fic rec’, I actually make sure that I expand on it. Especially, because I know that people spend a LOT of time making these things for tumblr, and I want them to know that it’s appreciated. ESPECIALLY when it’s something that makes me think. That’s the best.
About Canadian winter? I think it’s the way that everyone just kind of acknowledges that we’re all in this together, and so we make the best of it. Like, the second there’s a nicer winter day (so, anywhere up to about -15C), everyone is out skating on the river trail or cross-country skiing or something, because we just have to get through it.
I HAVE taken shots of maple syrup, and even sipped it from a shot glass, but it’s much better over pancakes and waffles. Or as candy. Or, poured boiling hot onto the snow, and then wrapped around a popsicle stick and licked.
Only the $100 bills smell like maple, and though the Mint denies it, it is fact.
When have you seen me dance?
Never, I’m just making an assumption. Plus, it’s the gif that appears when I hover over your avatar. :)
