Do you guys know what this is? DO YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT THIS IS?!

THAT, ladies (and...possibly gentlemen?) IS THE FIRST FIFTEEN CHAPTERS OF C&C, 30 PAGES OF 6 POINT SIZED FONT, HIGHLIGHTED AND MARKED UP.

YOU READ THAT RIGHT. CHARMS AND CURSES.

I'm going back, printing out all the chapters (five at a time), highlighting any important bits and poor bits, and then I'll compile everything in this swankified journal [livejournal.com profile] rachelmorph got me for Christmas. From there, I have some semblance of what I was actually going to do outlined in my head, and therefore be able to write the FINAL CHAPTERS OF C&C.

.....THEN START ALL THE FUCK OVER BECAUSE SO FAR EVERYTHING I READ IS SHIT. OVER-HYPED SHIT.

Seriously, I don't know why you people like it so much. Sure, the characters are fun and I have some semblance of plot admist the fluff. I WANT TO SLASH AND HACK THE TWISTED MUSE MUSICAL NUMBERS. And possibly all Springsteen references. He's still my idol, but I didn't realize how much I OVERDID IT.

All I see is one reference after another, whether it be pop culture or some bizarro-facts I was learning in school at the time, and wanting to flex my academic muscles for you all to gaga over my brain goop. GOD I WAS TERRIBLE. Maybe I should pick up NAWTS or GWAB up, since I can't reference anything in there. UGH. DID ANYONE ELSE NOTICE I SWITCHED FROM DAWN HAVING HAZEL EYES TO "AQUA" THEN BACK TO HAZEL?! *twitch*

My brain hurts. But, I started writing this nearly four years ago. RAGGLEFRAGGLEGRUMBLEMUMBLE~ I want to start over NAWTS. I loved that world so much....but I know it needs to be hack'n'slashed. I mean....Jiminy Crickets, my grasp of first aid back then makes me CRINGE.

Slowly, but surely, I'm working out the plot for C&C and MTTIC, and once I reread everything and makes the proper notes, then I'll start writing it again.

I'm working on a drabble, currently. I blame the ghost stories I bought.

Theme Songs

So I was bored and started to think of songs that would go well with some of my stories. A few times mostly just as "anime opening credits songs" sort of style and then the theme songs and such. Here's what I got!

First MTTIC.Woot woot! )

Just a simple writing exercise to get my creative juices flowing again. Basically you take the first line from page 10, 20, 30, etc of a book and write a little something with the character there. So I picked "Away Laughing on a Fast Camel" by Louise Rennison using Shasta.
So here we go~



pg. 10. " 'What kind of party is it going to be?' "

"Costume, duh," I replied, picking up some bright orange streamers from a bag of decorations. I tossed it up to Jazz, who stood on the ceiling. He caught it and taped one end by his feet before letting it slack.

"What're you going as?" he asked, catching a purple streamer I threw up.

"I 'unno. A banana?"

He laughed. "Should Dawn get a gorilla costume?"

"Nope, he just needs to get really hairy and find a mask. He's got the muscles to be a gorilla if he really tried."


pg. 20 "In the loo."

Why do they call it a loo? Then again, why do we call it a restroom? I'm not resting in the least. Maybe a girl's restroom might have a lounge area. That'd be effin' nifty. Well, I'm gay, can I go into the girl's restroom? Would they mind? I wouldn't. Save for all the femmy products lying around. Eeeew.


pg. 30 "He just smiled and said, "I know you are secretly very thrilled, Georgia."

"I am not secretly thrilled that you are going to bring me back presents from Czechoslovakia. And who is Georgia?" I replied, blinking. And why was the man behind me in line STILL talking to me? The line shifts and I switch my weight to the other foot, holding my box. It was full of frozen pest fairies in mayo jars. They'd live, but they wouldn't be happy when my mother got them, that's for sure.

"You are," he said, blinking back confusedly.

"Um...no. For one, I'm Shasta, for two, I'm a guy."

He tilted his head, staring at me carefully. "You look more like a Georgia to me."

"...are you off your meds?"


pg 40 " 'Jas, you live, as I have always said, in the land of the terminally deluded and criminally insane.' "

"I do not!" Jazz replied, a little huffy that my sister was calling him 'Jas'. "I have done nothing criminal at all!"

"Oh really? You stole my underwear all the time when we were kids!"

"What?!" he squawked.

I raised my hand timidly. "That was actually me. Olly Toggerson kept paying me for them. Got five bucks a piece."

My sister became enraged. "MY PANTIES ARE WORTH MORE THAN THAT!"


pg 50 "In the end, they all went off, including Angus, who I actually thought was driving the car at first."

And honestly, anyone who lets that insane familiar drive had never heard of the great reenactment of the suicide Thelma and Louise he attempted during our Grand Canyon vacation.

"Ten bucks he'll be surfing on the hood when they hit the coast," I muttered to Rhian.

"You're on if you throw in that Snickers bar in your pocket."

I blinked. "How the hell did you know I had...?"

He smirked, taking a drag of his cigarette first. "Ninja detective skills."

pg 60 "Dave the Laugh will be there."

"...we need to come up with a better nickname for him," I told Dawn flatly.

"Like what?"

"I dunno. Dave the Laugh sounds so...he is a laugh, a couple laughs even, and possibly a guffaw if drunk..."

"Dave the Guffaw?"

"That sounds like an alien."

"Yes, an alien that leaves you in stitches."

"And not in the bad way."

"....I wonder if all us gay men are really aliens."

"Why say that?"

"I mean...anal probing."

"....Shasta, put down the beer."


pg 70 "There was a lot of tossing and so on until I got a really bad neck cramp."

Dawn studied me for a moment. "Nope, you can't do the hair flick, your hair isn't that long."

I rubbed my neck with a wince.
