so actually after high_school_low mentioned loveing gabe saporta/kevin devine, i wrote a littel tiny bit of fic about them, and then on the way to school i was thinking about it, and like... i have a lot more fic to write.

because, as maria discovered, gabe's old band (midtown) and kevin's old band (miracle of '86) did actually play together in the past, so it's concievable that they met, both of them at the height of their fucked-upness, and my brain sort of snowballed from there while listening to disloyal order of water buffalos on the way to school.

like, there's been plenty of srs!gabe fic where he's all I'M SO MESSED UP I'M A DRUG ADDICT I CAN'T LOVE~ and then someone ~heals him or else is just as fucked up, be it travie or brendon or bill, but like... kevin was way more fucked up than gabe ever was. and kevin looks so innocent and childlike, and i can see gabe messing around with him because he thinks he's some other wet-behind-the-ears kid who'll fuck him because he's too unspoiled to know that's gabe's fucking toxic like all the rest, but then, maybe the first time they fuck, maybe the second, whatever, kevin shoots up with gabe right there and gabe suddenly realizes that 1) kevin is older than him. by a lot. even when he was gabe's age he was older than him. he hasn't been as young as gabe in a loooong time, and that scares gabe and 2) he didn't let gabe fuck him because he doesn't know how fucked gabe is; he let gabe fuck him because he's a thousand times more fucked up than gabe is and he's pastthe point of caring about getting better or worse. and gabe is like, oh fuck.

and then they have this thing where they fool around and get high and stay up till all hours (all night, even, never shutting their eyes at all) arguing about whether politics are the only thing that matters or whether the world's already burning and it doesn't matter who's in charge of putting out the fire and nothing matters anymore, not even politics, and eventually they even say "i love you" but that doesn't mean they stop fucking other people or anything, it just means what it means. and gabe cries himself to sleep in kevin's apartment many a time just because he doesn't know what else to do, but kevin never cries, not ever- sometimes gabe feels that kevin doesn't really love him in the same was he loves kevin because kevin won't give him that, won't let gabe see him break down; it takes gabe a while before the thought occurs to him that kevin might just be permenantly broken, might not even have that love to give him.

this is getting long, so i'll cut it.Collapse )

i hate writing misery!fic, so idk about that last bit. it's so extreme. i think i may just end up writing it so they just fall in horrificly disfunction love and leave it there, but the forced detox thing is so something gabe would do, idk. he's so fucked up. THEY'RE SO FUCKED UP.

ANON POST

taken from saykendrawithme, who took it from immortal_lights.

I want anybody and everybody who comes across this
to leave me an anonymous comment. It can be anything you want.
A story. A secret. A confession. A fear. A love. ANYTHING.
Just post anonymously and honestly.


I hate when people force poetry because they think it makes things easier to deal with if you make them sound pretty, or at least pretty enough that people pity you, and I know half of you are gonna do that, but I'm doing this anyway. Partly for those of you who don't, and partly because now that I've ranted about it those of you who would probably won't. If I hear a goddamn thing about pits at shows or sunsets or converse sneakers or laughter I will cut a bitch. You know what I mean. Talk like a normal person, not like a blogger. Talk like you're telling me out loud.

Stories are encouraged! Don't feel pressured to have a point. Don't try to make this bigger than it is. It can be huge if you want it to, but just telling me about where you went with your friends today is okay, too, if that's what you really feel like doing. Just don't force it, okay?

In honor of Ryan Ross' Sesame Street-style music recs, and my an alliterative conversation I had with Arielle today, here is an unreasonable amount of my favorite music by bands and artists that start with the letter "B".

30 odd songs under the cut: punk to doo-wap to pop to electro to rap. Booyah!

Artists include Baby Bash, Bad Religion, Buddy Holly, Barry Mann, Big Japan, Between the Trees, Brand New, The Boy Least Likely To..., Busedriver, Bruce Springsteen, Britney Spears, etc.

Clink on for the music!

B IS FOR BOOKIE AND THAT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME.Collapse )

This is a music sharing post, in response to Kaleigh's mixtape (it's locked- if you know her, then you know what's going on, and if you don't, then just download the music here because it's good). So these songs were compiled on a theme; part one is basically about how fucked up the world is, and part two is (equivalent to her part three) and is about how we deal with it. Songs of help and of hope. \o/ It's literally c/p'd from a comment on her journal, so if bits are addressed to "you", just ignore them. Unless you're Kaleigh, obviously. Also, Midtown is excluded from this list because she knows it, but for everyone else, GO LISTEN TO FORGET WHAT YOU KNOW.

THIS POST IS DEDICATED TO ESS AND SAM. [Jan. 1st, 2009|04:59 pm]

OKAY SO.

I read an amazing fic yesterday. It was well-written and lovely both in phrasing and in sentiment; you rooted for the good guys and cursed the band ones. It was all in all, wonderful.

But it had an unhappy ending.

So I left a comment about how much I adored it, along with my usual rant about unhappy endings. Sam and Ess in particular will be familiar with my woes on the subject.

It included this question, albeit jokingly: "WHY DO ALL THE GOOD WRITERS HAVE TO TORTURE THEIR CHARACTERS SO MUCH? ;_; WHAT DID THEY EVER DO TO YOU?"

The author (the wonderful ourgossip_lips, by the way. And the fic in question is this) responded as such, which seems to be basically the default answer: "THE TORTURE IS WHAT MAKES IT ~FUN. And... I don't want to say "real," because that is very woe-is-the-world, and I try not to be like that, but seriously? Woe is the world. It had to be sad lol."

To which I replied: ";_; i pity the fool who finds happiness in misery, if you don't mind me quoting liberally from both Pete Wentz and Mr. T. If you're doing it for realism, then it's art. If you're doing it for fun, then it's still just fanfiction. And if it's art, then why use characters that already exist? Why make ~~living people suffer in the minds of author and audience? Why not create fictional characters that reflect the world in which we live through metaphor? And hey, loads of people in small towns have happy endings. It's not like every single couple is miserable, so who's to say it's "realistic"? Possible, yes. More realistic than a happy ending? No. And let's assume that everyone has both misery and joy in their lives, which is a pretty fair assumption, in my opinion. Why choose to write about the misery and not the joy? Of course, small amounts of misery make for good plot; there is now an obstacle to overcome. And little doses or misery make the joy all the more sweet. But stories that ~end miserabley? I simply don't see the point, besides that the author 1) would rather watch other suffer to make themselves feel happier, 2) is miserable themselves and would rather bring others down to their level, in text if not in life or 3) doesn't understand that there is joy in life, and that happy endings are possible. And in that final case, the author should seek help, if they are not already receiving it."

And then I told her that this all has nothing to do with her and I am gonna post this in my journal because this is really, really not directed at her. I only mentioned her name because the fic was LOVELY and you should all go read it.

I'm leaving this public so she can see it, if she cares to look.











TL;DR IF I'M GIVEN THE CHOICE TO THINK ABOUT HAPPY OR SAD THINGS, WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE SAD THINGS? WHAT BENEFIT IS THERE BESIDES SADISM AND FURTHER MISERY?
