I finally have a few moments, so here's my latest Take That story.

A Little Out of Reach (3619 words)
Pairing: Howard Donald/Jason Orange
Summary: An unexpected phone makes Howard admit to something he's long hidden. But is it too late?
Notes: Written for the "loss of voice" square on my [ profile] hc_bingo card, and inspired by my paranoia about Jason seemingly being MIA during the boys' recent recording sessions. Thanks, as always, to my lovely first reader, [ profile] soundofthesurf, and my fab beta, m. butterfly.

Read on AO3.

In spite of an inspiring card, I didn't make a bingo from my [ profile] hc_bingo card last round. But I've decided to give it another go and sign up again, because a) it's h/c! and b) I'm a masochist.

This way to my hc_bingo card )

Signing up is probably madness. I've been working on a story that was meant to be a fill for my last [community profile] trope_bingo card (not to mention a sequel to my Howard-as-cop TT AU), and I have a stupidly huge case of writer's block on it. I've got a scene that just isn't doing what it needs to do, but I'm not sure how to change it, so I've been staring at the same sentence for weeeeeeeks whilst my brain my brain grinds away at it like an asthmatic hamster caught in a wheel. I finally decided this week to do an end run around the bloody scene and start writing everything that follows. I'm hoping this will lead to me figuring out how to deal with the recalcitrant scene. The jury's still out on whether this is working, but at least words are being produced.

Part of the problem might be that I think the creative part of my brain is more keen to vid than write at the moment. With the problem being that I don't have the huge chunks of time I need to vid available at the moment. But I definitely want to. And I've promised myself and a few others that I'll have a new vid for BistoCon.

So yesterday we're driving to a friend's place for brunch. To keep me alert, I was playing a Take That compilation I'd made, and it was on We All Fall Down, a B-side of Mark's. (This will be relevant.) All of a sudden, the Sweetie pipes up:

Sweetie: I see a Castiel vid.
Me: ::confused by apparent this non sequitar:: What?
Sweetie: The lyrics of this song, "We all fall down from the sky...Looking for a way back up again." It would make a good Castiel vid.
Me: ::starts laughing hysterically::
Sweetie: What?
Me: Oh my god, you're right. It would totally work. I can't believe you noticed that.
Sweetie: I've heard this song a lot.
Me: ::laughs again::
Sweetie: Supernatural and Take That. I blame you.
Me: ::keeps laughing::
Sweetie: Wow, did I blow your mind?
Me: A little.

I'm seriously tempted to try making that vid. In my copious amounts of spare time.

In other news, I've signed up for a couple of writing challenges. )

Drunk on the accomplishment of completing a line in [community profile] trope_bingo, I've signed up for a [ profile] hc_bingo card. Because I'm that much of a glutton for punishment. And also, h/c! My favourite thing ever!
