Come at me...

... heh

Found this on theladymore's page and thought I'd step out of my comfort zone:

send me a pairing and a number and I'll write you a ficlet about one:

… grinding up against the other
… moaning the other’s name
… stripping off
… sexting
… giving the other a strip tease
… giving a lap dance
… being drenched whilst wearing white
… leaping into the other’s arms
… confessing a fetish
… pinning the other against a wall
… trying to turn the other on
… successfully turning the other on
… turning the other off
… tying up the other
… spanking the other
… having some “private time” and the other accidentally walking in
… having a “friend” over and the other accidentally interrupting
… flashing the other
… having a wet dream and calling the other’s name during it
… bending over seductively to pick something up for the other
… leaving hickeys on the other’s neck
… trying to play footsie with the other during a meeting
… trying to go down on the other, under the table, during dinner

Fandoms: Tekken, Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel, NANA, Sailor Moon, and... let's go with a bit of Ouran High School Host Club.


Music Meme - Day 30

30. Your favorite song this time last year.

[A month and a day late is still better than none.]

So, of course, why didn't I do the appropriate thing and post this on New Years' Eve: one, I had to ring in 2015 alongside my co-workers on a foggy, disruption-fueled late-night shift at the airport and two, it was so hard to pinpoint just one favorite (I may also have been waylaid by certain, uh, 'attempts' to kick my writing into gear). Hence, I thought I'd make this a free-run post and share whatever music I enjoyed over the past year, complete with a devastatingly cryptic theme. Still scratching your heads over what it could be me? Have some honorable mentions to help you out.

Pointless post to end a meme with, yeah. Nevertheless, I hope everyone who happens to be reading is off to a great start to their year and if you aren't, I hope things get better soon.


Music Meme - Day 29

29. A song from your childhood.

Introducing my first real music obsession. A testament to the fact that while I was a fairly insufferable teenager, I could still be annoying as a six year old. Just ask my Dad; he's the one who had to drive me to and from school with this anthem blasting at max volume in the car. I'm quite sure I can make his eye inexplicably twitch just by humming the chorus alone.

What the hell, I've got a fifteen hour shift lined up tomorrow, I'mma zig-a-zag-ah all I want tonight.


Music Meme - Day 28

28. A song that makes you feel guilty.

I'm about 80-85% over this band at this point in my still-blooming evolution in music taste, though that hasn't stopped me from revisiting their stuff from time to time. While much of that can be put down to my weakness for a voice like Amy Lee's, I mostly blame the nostalgia left over from my emo teenage wasteland hell years wherein I'd partake in sulking, long periods of enforced solitude, angsty journal confessionals, terrible poetry, and a playlist comprised solely of Linkin Park and Evanescence.

Yeah. To those who knew me as a fifteen year old, I sincerely apologize.

Also, this isn't the only Evanescence song on my iPod. Since it's just shy of ten years that I should've given them up, I adjudge this song worthy of today's theme.


Music Meme - Day 27

27. A song that you wish you could play.

Now that I've come to it, I regret not having mentioned Amanda Palmer earlier. Her stuff was a huge source of comfort during a particularly rough period in my life, the memories of which this song immediately scratches out. It's a special type of hurt that I'd somehow forgotten until I heard a name mentioned today. His name.

Granted, it doesn't ache as hard  as it used to, but if I was a drinking person then this is the tune I'd be hammering out on the first line of piano keys I'd wash up on, on the precipice of a hangover. Hell, I'd still crash and burn to this, even if the closest thing I can spin out of a keyboard is a two-note Happy Birthday. Since I've already picked a song to be angry to, I'm also gonna list this one as the coming-to-terms song. Something sharp and bitter, something that bites, even with an aim as sloppy as mine.

But that's wishful thinking. I came here to vent and you deserve some good music.


Music Meme - Day 26

26. A song that you can play on an instrument.

Cop-out: I can almost whistle the first few notes.

I mean, I've been told I have a good speaking voice, which clearly is better off utilized for toasts and bedtime stories, so I can't even count that as my best 'instrument'. In any case, my real art lies in my words and what better song to set that tune clear than one about the sweet agony of a writer in love?

Okay, total cop-out, but I love this song and hope you enjoy it as much.


Music Meme - Day 25

25. A song that makes you laugh.

I was pretty much lost for words after hearing this song, so I'm just leaving it here and let you wrap your head around it yourself...


Music Meme - Day 24

24. A song that you want to play at your funeral.

A possibly self-indulgent pick, but the 'song' title says it all. I've always referred to myself as a closeted hopeless romantic and there are few better times to come out than at a funeral (though I'm sure someone could correct me on that). I don't like thinking about my final send-off any more than I do about my future wedding, but I'd still want it to be a quiet affair. Something sweet and serene, at a time when the pain of letting go would have started to heal. I hope I'd be remembered well and I'd hope that this piece would be a source of comfort for those who would do so for me.


Music Meme - Day 23

23. A song that you want to play at your wedding.

I gave up planning my wedding when I learnt the truth about fairy-tales: which was/is that that's all there is to them. So out when the dress - never felt good in silk and white always made me look fat - and I took on unattainable crushes just to squeeze what I could from them. That excess teen angst needed to collect somewhere, after all. Never had a particular lust for matrimony the way it's painted, is what I'm trying to say.

But I haven't let go of being happy. Being happy with someone. I want the kind of happiness that can't be contained in one 'special' day, not when I've heard it flow for miles and millions more deep. When I do marry, it won't be any more special than the love I would've - hopefully - discovered by then. It will be a quiet moment, like the most precious things are, and that will be enough.

I don't think about weddings in the same way I think about love. So when I take that step, it'll just be another swell in that ocean of happiness I've dreamt about since the first time I heard about 'ever after'.


Music Meme - Day 22

22. A song that you listen to when you're sad.

God, look at how long it's been. I'd hang my head in shame if that was actually physically possible.

Anyways, on to the music. I've mentioned this song in a previous entry, so now I get to go into more detail. It came with a fanmix I downloaded and it started playing at a particular time when I was feeling rather low. On my first morning on the way to work, to be specific. As per routine, I had taken my usual place at the back of the bus and immediately plugged in my earphones because a) I'm so not a morning person, and b) some of my co-workers haven't quite picked up on that fact despite the, um, 'subtle' little hints I'd been throwing, lips curved into a frown, monosyllabic replies, eyes shut tight, et al.

In short, I was a long way from my happy corner, especially given that I would drop this job in a heartbeat if it were possible. First days at work have always been the case. Then the song comes on and I open my eyes at the exact moment the bus turns a corner so that I get the view of the sun rising on my side. I hate to delve into cliches, but goddammit that was one of those small, beautiful moments worthy of being associated with a musical memory.
