Thank you for visiting and welcome!

My fan fiction can be found over at AO3 (I'm Taste_of_Suburbia). Maybe you already know me *waves*

The vast majority of my writing concerns SLASH, though I also write FEMSLASH, HET and am trying to write more GEN. I'm big into romance and even bigger into HURT/COMFORT, angst and fluff. I am a proud multi-shipper (especially rare ships), and I literally have way too many ships to list here. So you will see a wide array of fandoms, characters and pairings. I am HUGE into fandom and my life is pretty much geeking out over it at every possible moment.

I hang out on DW mainly around the holidays (holidays comms and such), though my goal is to spend more time on here, so please feel free to add me to your circle/friend me and I will surely friend you back. If you've here 'cause you're looking for something to read, then thank you for visiting! Every kudos, bookmark and comment on AO3 or anywhere else is greatly appreciated.

Also, I'm a pretty lonely person, so if you ever want to drop a note then I'm always around :)

immolate_the_silence: (Buck & JD - Friends)
So very recently I was gifted a fic in randi2204's absolutely spectacular Mag7 Rockstar!AU, after giving her some prompts for Mag7 Daybook's holiday season, and of course I absolutely have to share it here.

First of all, you should check out the awesome fic that spurred me on to give her some prompts and to dip my toes a little into the AU with my Chris/Ezra drabble for her. The fic takes place on Mary's 'Good Good Morning' show as she interviews the boys and how they came together as a rock band. It's just so charming and real and the boys are so lovely here and it's worth like a hundred reads.

Good Good Morning! - AO3 or dreamwidth

And here's the fic that was so unexpectedly and sweetly gifted to me after I gave her a prompt that bit me and wouldn't let go. This one centers around JD's beloved guitar getting broken and Buck doing something so unexpected and heartfelt and this one just has all the FEELS: angsty and happy. Go read!

The Angels Had Guitars - AO3 or dreamwidth


Here's to many more fics in this wonderful AU!

I was so happy to find all the cookie recipes in my stocking this year. I was on a real cookie binge through the month of December (and still am), so imagine my surprise when I open my stocking and find such a beautiful array of cookie recipes.

Moving on...

I also received some super cute animal pics and vids; being an animal lover, these little additions really cheered me up too. In addition, a New Zealand band recommendation (and metal to boot!), some much-needed and exciting sounding YA fantasy book recommendations, and some lovely holiday greetings.

Now down to the fic.

Drabble/Fic

Missing Persons - tarlanx (tarlan) - Moonlight - Mick/Josef - Mick had started to move on but an unusual case shared with Josef showed him a new path to follow, with Josef by his side.

In this fic, Mick and Josef get away from the hustle and bustle of LA and work together on a case that reeks of Greek mythology. There's protective Josef and Mick pouncing on the idea that he and Josef could have a happy little existence together... and what more do you need? I was so happy to receive Mick/Josef in my stocking this year and tarlan was just the perfect person to gift it to me.

Domestication - katiemariie - Penny Dreadful - Ethan/Sembene - An old Harry Potter fandom trope applied to the end of season 2: even when trapped together on a full moon, a werewolf will not kill its mate. Or, you know, the guy he likes.

In this fic, Ethan wolfs out like he did in the episode, but unlike in canon doesn't kill Sembene. This is really the perfect fix-it fic for these two, and it was secretly one of the requests pairings I wanted most because I miss these two SO MUCH. Ethan and Sembene are just so beautiful and caring and touching in this fic and it's like the perfect catharsis after that episode. And, to boot, it's in Sembene's lovely point of view. 

I told you so - angelus2hot - Vampire Diaries - Damon/Alaric

In this drabble, Damon comes back hurt due to an ambush and Alaric is waiting for him, though figures it might not be too nice if he tells Damon 'I told you so,' at least in that particular moment. The 'rush into things without thinking' Damon that we all know and love is featured here, though at least he has Alaric to come back home to. I just love this little drabble to pieces.

Art

Beth Turner - falcon_horus - Moonlight

falcon_horus gifted me again this year with a lovely 'Happy New Year!' Beth Turner piece. I'm still hung up over the show Moonlight and Beth is still one of my much beloved favorite characters, and WOW is she radiant here. I still can't get over how beautiful the piece (and she) is.

Recs & Other

Thank you to schlitzie_ramone for the band rec! And thank you to dunderklumpen for the animal vids and pics. Also thank you so much to cookiegirl for the YA fantasy book recs and for sharing with me a wonderful fanmix she had previously made (it's about Trick from Lost Girl and is so awesome, so go check it out).

Cookie Recipes

Thank you so much to bonnefois, highlander_ii, roeskva, ladyoneill and spiralicious for the cookie recipes!

Other Holiday Greetings

I also received some lovely holiday greetings from: valarltd, knowmefirst (who gave me a lovely image of vintage pocket watches), and twinsarein (whose little frog animation is just so damn cute).

Thank you to everyone who decided to grace my stocking with their lovely creations. A wonderful, happy and healthy 2017 to all of you!

Part 2 of 2 - Drabbles & Other ('cause apparently the post or the tag list or something is too large :(

I ended up stuffing 17 stockings for my second year at Fandom Stocking: 10 fics, 4 drabbles, 1 vid rec list, 1 music rec list, and 1 stocking that received both 1 fic and 1 piece of art.

Just like the year prior, it was difficult for me to stick to just drabbles, though I had loads of fun writing everything and even creating the vid rec list. I was able to branch out of my usual SPN fandom again (only 3/13 were SPN), which made me so happy. I was able to write in 4 other fandoms I have written for in previous years (Moonlight, Dark Angel, Z Nation and Hunger Games), and wrote for 5 new fandoms this year (Fantastic Beasts, DC Super Hero Girls, The Magicians, Lost Girl and Mag 7). I was especially ecstatic to write in the Mag 7 fandom (I just found this series this past summer and it has taken over my life).

Speaking of, my Mag 7 stocking stuffers for Mag7 Daybook are HERE.

Again, like last year, I'll thank those I've gifted for allowing me to write what I've written. It was the best Holiday season yet.


Drabbles

Close Call - Z Nation - Roberta, Murphy, Doc – Murphy has a close call.

The Morning After - The Magicians - Q/Eliot/Margo – Eliot and Margo both gave to him and took from him. They hadn’t used him and, with satisfaction, Q knew he hadn’t used them either.

Lead and Follow - Supernatural - demon!Dean/Crowley – Dean and Crowley’s summer escalates into something more.

A Christmas to Remember - Dark Angel - Alec/Max/Original Cindy + Joshua - Alec just wishes Max would stop stealing the cookies.


Fic + Art

Heartaches & Cityscapes - Moonlight - Mick/Josef - The first sip, purer than what he currently had back in his apartment, finally unfroze his tongue. “I haven’t felt the same since you turned me. It’s like I’m having a hard time keeping up with everything, trying to figure out where you fit in my life.”

“And I don’t fit?”


Vid Rec List
The Originals/The Vampire Diaries - Elijah, Rebekah, Klaus + Stefan/Klaus
HERE


Music Rec List

Fic

Sweet Serenity - Fantastic Beasts - Jacob/Queenie - Queenie would no sooner leave her heart behind than she would Jacob. Damn MACUSA’s rules.

Mutual Madness - DC Super Hero Girls - Diana/Harley + Kara/Barbara - Diana gets a taste of the madness within.

Better than Memory Foam - Supernatural - Dean/Crowley/Cas – An angel and a demon in his room, like it was a perfectly normal day.

A Visit Filled with Promise - Fantastic Beasts - Newt/Jacob - The Atlantic Ocean may have separated them, but Jacob Kowalski had never been far from Newt’s cluttered head.

The Wedding Video - Lost Girl - Bo/Tamsin + Kenzi, Dyson, Trick – Someone had to document the happiest day of Bo Bo’s life.

Five Times Crowley Offered His Services, And One Time Dean (Willingly) Accepted - Supernatural - Crowley/Dean - Dean can’t escape Crowley so easily, and it’s probably good that he can’t.

Hangover Remedies - Magnificent Seven - Vin/Chris - Somehow Vin wandered into someone else’s room last night.

Swept into Four Corners - The Originals/Magnificent Seven - Elijah, Klaus + Vin/Chris - Elijah Mikaelson is a renowned bounty hunter searching for his brother Klaus. Chris Larabee and Vin Tanner are just trying to fill up a free afternoon with whiskey.

Firecracker - Hunger Games - Haymitch/Johanna - The first time Haymitch met Johanna she was all sharp, unforgiving eyes and an even sharper bite.

Cold Clarity - Lost Girl - Dyson/Kenzi + Bo - Kenzi had burrowed her way quickly into Dyson’s heart, leaving behind her own particular brand of sass, not to mention filling him up with warmth, loyalty and devotion.

AFTanith,

I just wanted to give you a few band recommendations since I'm obsessed with some of the bands you mentioned and because I'm a huge music person in general.

Chevelle is one of my favorite bands, so I would recommend Taproot first of all (and everything they've put out). All of their albums vary, with the first being the heaviest, so from experience you might want to start with something lighter like Welcome, Blue Sky Research or Our Long Road Home. The Episodes isn't for everyone but is my favorite.

Cold is my next go to and I would start with 13 Ways to Bleed on Stage or the lighter A Different Kind of Pain. Next I will recommend A Perfect Circle (and if you like this band then maybe Ashes Divide), 10 Years (especially The Autumn Effect album), Filter (The Amalgamut album is their best but also the most metal), Trapt (self-titled is my favorite and a good starting point), Staind (I would start with Break the Cycle or even The Illusion of Progress for something lighter), Deftones (Koi No Yokan and Diamond Eyes are really good and I think good starting places), and maybe Sevendust (Black Out the Sun album).

While hopefully you haven't heard of all of those, if you have then you may not have heard of Revis, who only put one CD out (Places for Breathing) but are AMAZING. Armchair Cynics are just as indie as they are, but their small album Killing the Romance is awesome. Crossfade is another one that comes to mind if you like Chevelle, especially their self-titled album.

I'm also into European bands like you are, and if you like Within Temptation and Epica then hopefully you should like some of these: The Gathering (if_then_else, Home, Souvenirs), Tristania (Ashes) and Sirenia (An Elixir for Existence or The 13th Floor). Unsun's two albums The End of Life and Clinic for Dolls are also fantastic. Lacuna Coil (gothic metal for most of their albums, Comalies is my favorite) and Theatre of Tragedy (Storm and Musique) are my personal favorites. And before I forget, if you like Anneke from The Gathering then you should check out her vocal work in The Devin Townsend Project.
 
Some other band recommendations:

HIM kinda reminds me of My Chemical Romance. The Razorblade Romance album is a great starting point, though they're essentially gothic romance music so they're not for everyone.

Matthew Good Band comes to mind as you brought up Fall Out Boy and Panic at the Disco, but I wouldn't really compare them. This is a great Canadian band that is one of my favorite bands ever because of their upbeat, feel good music. I would probably start with Beautiful Midnight or Underdogs. Matthew Good also puts out some great solo albums, especially Avalanche, which is pretty indistinguishable from the stuff with his band.

Paradise Lost is one of my favorite bands and has worked in a wide variety of genres: gothic metal, doom metal, death metal and even alternative metal/rock. Their alternative metal/rock ones are highly addictive: Believe in Nothing and Symbol of Life for a little more metal. For gothic metal, then their self-titled album is a great starting point.

I really hope you haven't heard of some of these and that one calls out to you.

The Happiest of Holidays!

So my mother decided at the last minute to give me a Christmas since I'm still living at home (I should have suspected judging by how many times she went to booksamillion). And I finally got to open my presents today!

I've been wanting Funko Pops for ages but haven't yet bought into the craze. Well, my mother sought to remedy that (probably after I reminded her that my obsession with Suicide Squad was not temporary). Imagine my amazement to receive both Harley Quinn (one of my favorite all-time characters), and my own little Eva Green!

Behold: Harley Quinn (Suicide Squad edition) and Miss Peregrine (Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children):

I also received a Suicide Squad bookmark, a Christmas Snoopy mug with a Woodstock plushie, and a pack of my favorite G2 pens in lovely colors.

And, per request, two brand new books that made my favorite series (Richelle Mead's Bloodlines) collection finally complete!:

And with my leftover Amazon gift card credit, I finally ordered those two End of Green cds I've been wanting so damn badly (both of them brand new and one of them a box set!)

So here is a list of the stockings I've stuffed for the Mag7 Daybook holiday season. 6/6 Stockings! Excluding myself of course (though I am saving the Wild Card prompt on my hurt/comfort bingo card for that *smiles indulgently*). So I totally met my goal! And let me just say, I had a blast :)

Farad's Stocking - Drinking Buddies - Chris/Vin - OW
“You thinkin’ ‘bout whiskey again?”
Chris’ thoughts, however, were elsewhere.  

warqueenfuriosa's Stocking - so my soul's not left so hollow - Chris/Ezra + Vin - OW
Words were flung, punches thrown, yet that hollow feeling in the pit of Chris’ stomach at the haunted look in Ezra’s eyes… that was what nearly killed him. 

boogieshoes' Stocking - Strawberries & Cream (aka The Power of Love) - Chris/Buck + JD - ATF
Lucky for Buck, Chris didn’t forget the whipped cream or the strawberries.  

solosundance's Stocking - Entirely At Your Command - Chris/Ezra + Vin - OW
Chris had a whole long list of obsessions he’d never breathe a word of to anyone. Except… well, judging by the look on someone’s face, the object of his affections might already know and there wasn’t a damn thing Chris could do about it. 

randi2204's Stocking - Concussed - Chris/Ezra - Randi's Rockstar!AU
Ezra’s cranky as he nurses his concussion, but Chris will take him any way he can have him.
+
7 Rockstar!AU prompts:

1) Vin has writer's block and [insert other character here] helps him find his inspiration again.
2) Behind the Scenes footage from the Music Video gets leaked online.
3) Chris & Ezra come out as a couple and wind up on Good Good Morning with Mary again ('cause she totally supports aka 'ships' them!).
4) JD's guitar is smashed somehow (accident, intentionally, etc.) and Buck tries to cheer him up and/or does something about it.
5) Going on tour and being in such close quarters can wear on the boys sometimes.
6) There's an interesting story behind Josiah's sitar that only he and Nathan know, but Nathan definitely isn't telling. Unless....
7) Ezra tries his hand at singing, much to Buck's annoyance and/or anger, but at least Chris and Vin are cheering him on!

Deannie's Stocking - Big Brothers & Little Brothers - Buck & JD Gen + Ezra, Nathan - OW
Winter Fever has swept into Four Corners and despite Buck’s best efforts, the youngest of the seven has fallen prey to it.


Extra Goodies in the General Fandom Stocking

Oh, Christmas Tree -  All 7 Gen - OW
A Christmas without JD may break them, yet a Christmas tradition might just bring them together again. 

and my weak heart is swimming with devotion - Ezra/JD + All 7 - OW
Ezra loses his favored jacket, and he almost loses something else too.

So I'm trying to get some last minute writing done before the end of the year and then before the 5th as well, but I just stumbled upon absolute zero, then the laws of thermodynamics, then astronomy and through that cosmology (big freeze and heat death), and finally the fascinating concepts of entropy and thermodynamic equilibrium.

And ENTROPY... oh god, I could spend the whole rest of my life on this.
(And I suck at science btw)

WHY?????!!!!!

Really enjoyed Suicide Squad.

Not only was the acting great and the characters fleshed out beautifully, but I thought the directing, special effects and editing were all amazingly well-done, despite so many saying otherwise. The fact that David Ayer was able to introduce all these colorful characters and still establish an interesting (and simple not an overly convoluted or boring and filler) plot and give the audience such a wild ride is just AWESOME to me.

I was expecting having a lot of fun watching this film and that's what it was... a ton of fun. And what wouldn't be fun about a group of quirky, antisocial misfits? Definitely worth the time and the money, and don't let anyone convince you otherwise. 

Oh, and just because I can't not mention it: Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and Joker (Jared Leto) were to die for.

And I was very pleasantly surprised by Will Smith's, Joel Kinnaman's and Viola Davis' performances as Deadshot, Rick Flag and Amanda Waller. Overall, what a fantastically fun and beautiful film.

So my time to get my Bachelor's is running down and suddenly things are getting a lot scarier. Pretty much since Elementary school I've always assumed I would get a Master's Degree, but now that I only have a year left I'm doubting it more and more.

First of all, I really just want to get another job and start working (even though the last one changed me and set me further back in a lot of ways and made me into a horrible person), since I'm miserable when I'm not making money. Second of all, I just found out that you have to take this GRE test and I've taken a sample and it's unbelievably difficult (even with studying), plus it's like $200, so now I just think that Graduate School is wholly unrealistic. My parents just told me that they were willing to pay for all of it, but this just makes me want to go less and less and less (since the guilt is eating me alive). Plus... writing is supposed to be my passion but I am really sick of writing papers and my motivation is dropping further and further every semester. 

Why does life have to be so goddamn hard? I have it easier than most and have all the support in the world, but I've been completely depressed and miserable since 2010 and there is no silver lining in sight.

Well, this is the worst birthday I've had yet. To be honest, turning twenty-two makes me feel old anyway. 

I watched a couple episodes of Z Nation Season 2, which was great, and then I re-watched Insurgent after that. Unfortunately, it made me cry so much that my eyes are still itching... so probably not a good birthday choice.

I was bored the rest of the day so I decided to bake a cake. I never cook or bake because for some reason the food never comes out good, but my expectations for the cake were low enough that all I wanted is for it to have been edible... but no. Not even edible. The cake was more like bread than cake, and the frosting had no appeal. In addition, the sprinkles I got were too small, but at least I liked the dollar candles. That's what happens when you don't want to fork out $25+ for a cake. Dinner didn't come out that great either. 

So next, just to try to make my day a little bit better and because I haven't bought anything in months, I find two things I want on Hot Topic.com, except both are sold out in my size. I'm also pretty pissed because I'm part of their rewards program and I didn't get anything for my birthday (even though I did last year). Also, every time I wanted to order something in the past year it's never been in my size (what's the point of selling things then?), and I live too far away from a store to justify driving the distance on the 50% chance it's actually in the store (and if you call them they're rude and don't give you a straight answer). Gonna scroll through amazon shit now. 

Here's to next year with my liter bottle of Mellow Yellow.
