Title: Confessions of a Man Insane Enough to Live with Beasts
Fandom: Weeds
Characters/Pairings: Andy/Nancy.
Rating: PG-13 (language)
Word Count: 3,144
Author's Note: Takes place between 6x08 "Gentle Puppies" and 6x09 "To Moscow and Quickly". If you're looking for sexytimes, you're about to be disappointed since this falls in with canon more than it doesn't. Also, this is a sort of half-assed attempt at answering [ profile] falseeeyelashes prompt from months ago; the only part that remains of that prompt is the Fourth of July setting. And on that note, if this show has a timeline I can't figure it out, so pretend it's July. Finally, title stolen from Bukowski.
Summary: They can't hold this together much longer.

the high won't fade here )

- I want to thank everyone for their lovely comments to my last post. I am definitely feeling the love from you all right now.

- Since I know I have a ton of fans on my flist, my very talented friend [Bad username or site: @] made a breathtaking ensemble video for The Vampire Diaries. I don't watch the show but I got to see this vid from start to finish and, man, it gives me chills. You should check it out here.

- If anyone's not following [Bad username or site: @] over on tumblr, they really should be. And I don't just say that because she made these gorgeous arts inspired by my last Chuck fic. She's multi-fandom and multi-talented and above all that a really great person.

Title: We Made Out Like Bandits
Fandom: Chuck
Characters/Pairings: Sarah; Devon/Sarah, Casey/Sarah
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 6,570
Warnings: Character Death.
Author's Note: Accidentally inspired by my brain on drugs and this. I have never actually been to these places. Though The Plaza Hotel really is probably haunted.
Summary: AU. It's a Tuesday morning and her eggs are runny; the red smear on the table isn't ketchup. No one screams.

it breaks when you don't force it )

I'm posting this here since everyone on Tumblr seems to have figured it out on their own so I figured I would share.

I beta now. A hell of a lot more than I used to. So, some ground rules.

I am of the belief that there are various levels of betas: Level 1 being grammar/spelling/formatting. Level 2 being word choice, characterization, etc. Level 3 being tear this shit apart. I'm not so hot on Level 3 unless we're really good friends. Like I've betaed for you before and I feel comfortable enough to tell you 'this scene in no way works at all, take it out now'.


I will Level 1 beta (i.e., check spelling/grammar) for anyone (even if we're not flisters), in any fandom -- even if I don't know it, and [Bad username or site: @] can attest that I've looked over her TVD fic before with no problems -- for any pairing, regardless of my feelings on it.

I will Level 2 beta for FLISTERS ONLY, any fandom that I am familiar with (check my userinfo), for any pairing within those fandoms, regardless of my feelings on it.

My email is You can contact me here via PM, on Tumblr via my ask, and on Twitter. My username is always slybrunette, wherever you go. You can also find me on gchat. I take .docx, .doc, and GoogleDocs. I use track changes but if that's not cool with you, we can work around it.

Finals week is coming up but after May 6th, I should be more or less available for the duration of the summer. I am more likely to get back to you in the afternoon/evening. I'm going to try for a 24 hour turnaround but if it's a 10,000+ word fic, that may take a while. This post will be stickied to the top of my journal, for future use.

Anyways, feel free to hit me up :)
slybrunette: (B. Sweets; couldn't wash the echoes out)
In case anyone isn't aware, tonight's the last night of Coachella, and it's streaming here.

The National is playing at 7:20PM PST and Mumford & Sons (who were fantastic last night) are playing an encore at 8:30PM PST. Amazing, amazing stuff, and a bunch of bands left to play.
slybrunette: (chuck. c/s. like fire around the brim)
Title: You Make Me Lose My Buttons
Fandom: Chuck
Characters/Pairings: Casey/Sarah
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,460
Author's Note: For [ profile] gigglemonster who made the wonderful GIF, which inspired this fic.
Summary: She knows he’s looking. This is a very well fitting dress and he can play the all-business spoilsport who craves nothing more than a gun in his hand but it's a front that she can see right through.

i don't like my clothes anymore )

For six weeks starting in the middle of May I get to get up at six in the morning two days a week to go to my behavioral psych class.

So I guess I will no longer be sleeping on those two days. Fabulous.

People, DO NOT, under any circumstances, tweet a link to my fic -- or anyone else's for that matter -- to a WRITER or a PRODUCER on the show said fic is for. That is a stupid, stupid plan, not the least of which being that it's A) annoying to them, and B) they CAN'T read fic because it opens them up to legal issues. Just. Don't. They're not there to be harrassed and I understand that I am probably meant to take it as a compliment but I don't. You know what I take as a compliment? A comment reading hey, this was good. But don't tweet. Don't be stupid.

I am saying this now because this apparently happened while I was gone and, as someone who's seen this happen in TBBT fandom and become an ~issue, this shit is not kosher with me.
slybrunette: (ncis. t/z. today you were far away)
Okay, so one more thing before I go:

Title: At Terror Street and Agony Way
Fandom: NCIS
Characters/Pairings: Tony/Ziva
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 7,843
Author's Note: For [ profile] rinslet. Hopefully the length makes up for how long I took. Also, I guess this is me dealing with my issues re: the Somalia storyline and how it was handled by the show. Title stolen from Bukowski.
Summary: There are inquires. Six rounds with a shrink, a proper one this time, a pinched faced woman who doesn’t know him from Jack, except for what his file says. His file says a lot. Not as much as hers, though.

we're losing our exits one by one )
slybrunette: (p&r. april. my hipster darling)
I'm leaving tomorrow to stay the weekend at George Mason and go see Cold War Kids in concert, and probably won't be around again until Monday. It'll be a nice opportunity to clear my head because I've had a horribly stressful last week and a half (this is why I took prompts and have yet to post fic -- I can't seem to finish anything), and I'll be spending it with [ profile] bebitched which is always a bonus.

Anyways, I won't have much internet so if I miss any posts directed at me/posts of importance, just drop me a line here. Depending on what I finish, there might be a filled prompt or two tomorrow before I leave, so I'll catch up on comments with that after I get back.

Have a good weekend everyone!

(There's a chance I'll also be back post Grey's to rant/rave, but I highly doubt that.)

Prompts are being filled from last post; thank you for your patience.
slybrunette: (CHUCK. Chuck; soldier who lost composure)
Title: Chuck Vs. The 'F' Word
Fandom: Chuck
Characters/Pairings: Ensemble. Eventually Bryce/Chuck(/Carina) and Casey/Sarah.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 10,014
Author's Note: Part two of my AU Series, beginning with Chuck vs. Uncle Sam. If you haven't read that, this probably won't make a whole lot of sense. I owe everything to my wonderful followers on Tumblr who don't mock me when I liveblog my writing woes but mostly, as always, to [ profile] gigglemonster.
Summary: Black and white. Good and bad. Don't kid yourself; society's moral code is more complex than that (or the girl with the gun is telling lies again. maybe there's two girls. maybe they're mixing their lies with truth. maybe that's the dangerous part. here's some truth for you: this whole mess is the dangerous part and safety is a tale best saved for schoolchildren).

slybrunette: (tww. t/cj; i'll just keep waiting)

Got to say, in general, I hate fandom's taste after this last round. Hate.

Title: Timeless Like A Broken Watch

Rating: PG-13
Author's Note: For the Grey's Anatomy comment ficathon. Original post here.
Summary: They meet again in an airport in the middle of the country. All bets are off.

you calculate coincedence and circumstance and turbulence )
slybrunette: (SN. Dan; even money)

Yes, I am in fact Team Dan over Sheldon. Also, Team Troy, Team Andy, Team CJ, Team Kalinda, Team Miranda, and Team Kara. Some of these races are hard guys, Raylan Givens vs. Neal Caffrey makes my head hurt, as does Lucille Bluth vs. Leslie Knope.

Fandom: Grey's Anatomy
Characters/Pairings: Burke/Cristina
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 500
Author's Note: For the Grey's Anatomy comment ficathon and [ profile] nursebadass. Angstville. Original post here.
Summary: They can go ten rounds or she can stand by the door, arms crossed and indifference on her face, but it all ends the same.

it's only the tenses that keep changing )
slybrunette: (ga. meredith. put the girl on a pedestal)
Title: Coup de Grâce
Fandom: Grey's Anatomy
Characters/Pairings: Meredith + Lexie. Pre-ship.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,804.
Author's Note: For the What Should Have Happened Ficathon at [ profile] meredith_lexie. [ profile] foibles_fables wanted a redone 2x18 (the episode where she slept with George) with a Mer(+/)Lexie twist.
Summary: Meredith just needs a few shots of tequila and a warm bed, warm body optional.

and your voice calls out for the coup de grace and the lights go out )
slybrunette: (bbt. s/p. close captioned heartbeats)
Title: A Comedy Of Manners
Fandom: The Big Bang Theory
Characters/Pairings: Sheldon/Penny
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 6,160
Author's Note: Originally prompted at the Valentine's Day Fic Exchange. I was always late to the party and, um, rl took over for the past month so. Also, Comic Con is a tired setting but I tried to change things up a little.
Summary: Of extended morning afters, lipstick stains, and inconvenient hotel room arrangements.

comic con has the worst timing that year )
slybrunette: (justified. tim. green light)
Friends cut.

If you think I cut you for the wrong reasons/wanna try again/etc, leave a comment. If you're just here for fic, then by all means continue to be here for fic (now if I would just actually write some).
