przed: (SPN castiel with wings by lenyicon)
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. )
przed: (tt howard/jay scruffy)
I've somehow managed to finish the last story to complete in my trope_bingo line. It's another long one, and I'm back to the Take That boys. (Howard/Jason is rapidly becoming my pairing of choice.)

All We Have (14476 words)
Fandom: Take That
Rating: Mature
Relationships: Howard Donald/Jason Orange
Summary: PC Howard Donald doesn't suspect his life is going to change utterly when he answers a call on Canal Street.
Notes: Written for the [community profile] trope_bingo challenge. Trope used: au: cop/detective. Thanks to [ profile] soundofthesurf for being my kind first reader, and [ profile] cenea for a blazingly fast beta.
przed: (pros mixed doubles gunrange)
Well, I didn't quite make the trope bingo deadline, but I should make a line in the amnesty period. To that end, I've actually written some Pros! (I know, don't acted so shocked.)

This Charming Man (1305 words)
Fandom: The Professionals
Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Summary: Doyle's new partner is an arrogant bastard. Or so it seems.
Notes: Written for the [community profile] trope_bingo challenge. Trope used: rivals to lovers. Unbetaed (if not unedited) so all errors are on my head.
przed: (tt howard/jay lust/love)
I'm finally writing again! And I've managed another trope bingo story. Now I've somehow got to finish two more before Tuesday to complete a line. Aiiieeeeee!

Friendly Fire (1726 words)
Fandom: Take That
Rating: Explicit
Pairing: Howard Donald/Jason Orange
Summary: Howard and Jason have unfinished business.
Notes: Notes: Written for the [community profile] trope_bingo challenge. Trope used: handcuffed/bound together. Thanks, as always, to [ profile] soundofthesurf for being my lovely first reader, and m. butterfly for checking that all the commas were there.
przed: (tt mark/robbie cuddle)
Here's the monster trope bingo story. I can honestly say I've never written anything quite like it.

The Other Side (20210 words) by PR Zed
Fandom: Take That
Pairings: Mark/Robbie, and a hint of Howard/Jason
Summary: It would never have happened if Mark hadn't gone to Nigel's party that Friday night.
Notes: Written for the [community profile] trope_bingo challenge. Trope used: genderswap. Thanks, as always, to [ profile] soundofthesurf for being my lovely first reader, m. butterfly for her usual impeccable edit, and [ profile] halotolerant for helping make it a better story.

Three stories to go and I'll have a line for bingo. Unfortunately (or fortunately, I suppose, depending on whether you're the reader or the writer) at least one of those stories looks to be another massive, plot-heavy one. I think there will be writing of fun, short smut before I tackle that one.
przed: (tt howard/jay smug)
Whilst I was waiting for the beta on my 20,000 word epic, I've finished another trope_bingo story.

If Love is a Game (2353 words)
Fandom: Take That
Pairing: Howard Donald/Jason Orange
Summary: Howard has a plan. Jason may, or may not, cooperate.
Notes: Trope used: game night. Thanks, as always, to my lovely first reader, [ profile] soundofthesurf, and to m. butterfly for making sure all the commas were in the right places.
przed: (tt beautiful markie)
The good news is I've just finished a first draft of my first [community profile] trope_bingo story. It's a whisker shy of 20,000 words.

The bad news is, if all the stories for the challenge end up this long, I'm never going to get a bingo on my card before the deadline.

przed: (tt ot5 puppy pile)
