Repeated meme stolen from[livejournal.com profile] jnhardyzmercy 

Choose 10 characters (preferably from the same fandom) and answer the questions that follow. No peeking until your list is done!

However, since i'm such a rebel, i've decided to do multiple fandoms. Take that, society!

My Characters:

1) Josh (Being Human-US)
2) Merlin (Merlin)
3) Gabriel (Supernatural)
4) Reginald Jeeves (Jeeves and Wooster)
5) Gregory House (House MD)
6) Captain Jack Harkness (Torchwood/Doctor Who)
7) Aziraphale (Good Omens)
8) Nan (The Catherine Tate Show)
9) Marshall (United States of Tara)
10) Mark Cohen (RENT)

Okay, I just have to put this out there. I just did ten different fandoms right there. You don't understand the pure agony i just went through. Like, I'm going to aneurysm.

Now, a Q & A from your sponsor )

Name a character I've written about, and I will tell you three things that I think are essential to keep in mind when writing that character.
jabber_moose: (Default)

I stole this from [livejournal.com profile] morganoconner 

These are 3 "snippets" from 3 WIP stories i have. I only picked three, because if i put down more, i'd just depress myself.



1) When Ianto returned, he wasn’t sure which was more surprising- the fact that Jack was still out for the count, or that he was not alone.

The man was in his thirties, kneeling at Jack’s side, a hand pressed to Jack’s forehead. His dark hair was tousled, as though he’d been mussing it with his hands, head bowed in a sense that Ianto could only describe as reverent, lips moving wordlessly. He was a smaller man than Jack or Ianto, though his tan trenchcoat gave him a slightly more intimidating appearance.

“Er, hello?” Ianto’s mind was racing, compiling an explanation for the well-meaning stranger who happened upon his temporarily deceased boss, and to the Retcon resting inconspicuously in his jacket pocket.

The man lifted his gaze to Ianto, eyes startlingly blue in the lamplight, solemn and searching. “I am sorry,” he stated without inflection. How the man could actually give the impression of absolute sincerity without so much a flicker of expression was beyond Ianto, but he managed it. “I was too late.”

As Ianto stepped forward, a lie and a reassuring word on his tongue, Jack surged into life with a tortured gasp, clutching at the man’s trenchcoat. His gaze focused on the man, registering, before a suggestive grin made its way to his face.

“Well,” Jack said, one brow raising in interest. “Hello there. You’re not Ianto.”

The aforementioned Welshman let out a relieved sigh he wasn’t aware he’d been holding since he arrived back on scene.

“I am not,” the man agreed, studying Jack with a straight face. “I am Castiel, an angel of the Lord.”



2) When Sam got back to his place, he was surprised to hear Jess’ laughter before he even unlocked the door.

Marc was sitting at their dining room table, drinking their coffee, and making his girlfriend laugh until tears ran down her face.

“Sam!” Marc greeted, cheerfully. “You’re home early.”

Sam looked between them, and Jess just smiled. “You left your man purse at class. Marc dropped it off.”

Sam didn’t have a man purse.

Or a bag, for that matter.

Marc grinned at Sam, eyes burning an unusual gold, and an unexpected chill swept through Sam. Something inside  of him whispered about a past life, of demons and never stopping- blood and death, burning, and a hand in his.

Don’t look, Sammy.

Don’t look.

Sam suddenly crossed the room, grabbing Marc’s arm, and pulling him out of the room.

“Forceful,” Marc said. “Kinky. You only needed to say…”

“Who are you?” Sam demanded, pressing Marc’s smaller frame against the wall. “What are you?”

“Okay, hands off the merchandise,” Marc pried Sam’s fingers from his upper arms. “Stop being a cray-cray. You ever think that maybe I just like you?”

Oh, God.

Jess was right.

Marc was gay for him.

Sam released Marc, stepping back. “Sorry.”

Marc shrugged, rubbing his arms. “Geez, what do you pack in those gigantor arms of yours, steroids?”

“I’m sorry,” Sam repeated, lamely.

Marc was unusually silent for a moment, looking up at Sam, mouth drawn into a tight line, eyes suddenly dark and sympathetic.

“No, Sam. I’m sorry.” The shorter man turned, called goodbye to Jess, and left.



3) "That's it," the pizzaman's voice was pitched low, seductive. "Unzip your pants. The kids are still outside. Nobody'll know."

Castiel paused, brow furrowing. He hadn't recalled that line the first time, but perhaps he had been too distracted.

"Are you honestly going to protest? It's just me and you, now. I won't tell," the man's smile was disarming enough, and Castiel slid his zipper down with a low sigh.

"We shouldn't do this," Castiel informed the pizzaman along with the babysitter. "They'll be back in any minute."

"An extra tip'll seal the deal," The pizzaman grinned, and there was something in his eyes, something unstaged, raw, and purely mischievous that made Castiel's nerves stand on end, and then there was a sharp pull on his Grace. The room flooded with a new kind of light, and the unconvincing protests of the babysitter were drowned out.

When the light faded, Castiel was no longer alone in the room. He was filled with a sense of breathless awe at the sight of the pizzaman standing before him, striped shirt untucked from unbuckled ironed slacks.

Castiel supposed the feeling he had wasn't unlike the one Dean experienced when he spoke of Dr. Sexy, MD, before he was sufficiently scarred from the TVLand experience when Gabriel-

Gabriel.

Gabriel, who had taken on the form of Dean's "idol."

Gabriel, who led the brothers to cage Lucifer through the use of Casa Erotica.

The pull he had been receiving to this particular form of entertainment, and the character he had 'learned' to kiss from standing before him. It was no coincidence.

"Gabriel," Castiel confirmed, the knowledge that his brother was somehow alive and standing before him sending his emotions into a spiral.

"Special delivery, kiddo," Gabriel grinned.

And that was when Castiel moved to punch him.

He had learned that from the Righteous Man.

How you know you're reading a fic by [livejournal.com profile] jabber_moose 


1. If it's NC-17, there will have been frotting/clothed/wall sex
2. It'll be a little abstract
3. Reading it will have  a  'flowy' feeling
4. There will always be a beginning, middle, and end
5. Pairings may vary, but it will typically be "generic" (Dean/Cas, Sam/Gabriel, Jack/Ianto, Tony/Control, etc)

I stole this from [livejournal.com profile] icarus_chained  because i want to write something, but i'm feeling blocked up

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any story I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the characters' heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

I mean, i don't expect replies, since i write mostly commentfics (Most of which are under 500), and those are short. So, yeah

But *shrugs* I mean, i've written Boffle and Jooster things that are longer.

IDEK.

So, classes begin next week. Two days a week, only, but they're back to back, Wednesdays and Saturdays. I plan on busting my ass to do well in.

So, naturally, with that in mind

 From [livejournal.com profile] zekkass 

✿ Leave a comment saying I'M ON A BOAT!
✿ I'll respond by asking you five questions to satisfy my curiosity.
✿ Update your journal with the answers to your questions.
✿ Include this explanation and offer to ask other people questions.


Questions posed by [livejournal.com profile] zekkass 

1. What's the funniest book you've ever read?
Funniest book i ever read. I'd probably have to go with either I Am America (And So Can You!) by Stephen Colbert or Wake up, Sir! by Jonathan Ames

2. Why did you give your manga away?
I was moving across the country  I can't believe you remembered this and didn't want to cart my entire collection. Besides, i knew they'd be going to a good home

3. So what are your thoughts on yaoi? XD
Someone's been hitting up [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants haven't they? God, those tags slay me every time. Anyway. Yaoi was my kick off to the world of fandom, actually. For a more serious answer to it, i like it because of how it's usually written. It's kind of tough to find alot of writing where it's not all..damsel in distress, happily ever after. I like something with substance, something that presents a challenge.

A guy can easily bring a girl home and family can be like, "HOORAY!

Guy brings a guy home? Not so easy all the time.

Also: Japanese culture is a plus. I love learning

4. Explain why you like Dean/Castiel to me again.
Why i like Dean/Castiel. One of the things i don't think we've discussed before is the fact that i can like them as a pairing, but as a friendship, they're dynamic as well.

There's that in your face intensity. The savior/saved (but who's who, anyway?). The parallel between Cas and God, and Dean and John. I think Cas was introduced at the ideal time, too. Dean's life has revolved around Sam, and when Cas entered the picture, Sam was pretty deep in demon blood territory. Dean needed someone else in his life, even if he was a dick.

Doesn't hurt that Cas can't die too easily, whereas everyone else in Dean's life has. Sure, explosions, banishments. And Cas isn't...a burden. He doesn't rely on Dean to save him.

Also, they're both BAMFs.

The fandom isn't lacking in awesome fics, either


5. Favorite musical? Why?

Why would you do this to me? Just...why? I mean, seriously. It's cruel and unusual punishment. I have half a mind not to even answer this. I'm totally stalling.

Let me try this. If you said..mayybe...a theme/genre?

"Of the musicals you want to sing along and dance in your seat to. Between Mamma Mia and Footloose, which would you choose?" Footloose

I don't even.

This is cruel.

I answered. I answered vaguely. I semi-answered.

I plead the fifth on this one
jabber_moose: (Default)


I did one of those 12-character number replacement memes, Supernatural style. (With House and Wilson, cause i needed two more)

This should not have been attempted. I should be out getting my pie ingredients. Damnit.


 

1) Crowley
2) Gabriel
3) Bobby
4)Castiel
5) Dean
6) Sam
7) Death
8) Lucifer
9) Chuck
10) Becky

11) Gregory House

12) James Wilson

Ask me one fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general.

Just one question, please, but it can (and perhaps should) have sub-parts.

Question can be as wacky as you want. Ask me about tv shows, characters, fanfic in general, fandom issues/meta, anything about any of my stories specifically. Whatever you want.

I am a meme-thief!
