So, end of the year friends cut. This is not good times for anyone, let's be real. But I basically have way less time on my hands then I did last year, and don't have time to wade through all of the posts that populate my flist. So. Here be the awkwardness.

I cut you if:

A) We literally never talk and are probably just on each other's flists out of common courtesy because we used to at some point.
B) I looked at your username and didn't have a clue who you were.
C) I can tell that I am filtered out of a lot of your posts already.
D) Insert other situationally specific reason here.

I think that's it? I don't know. My fic posts are all public. If you friended me for that, you're not going to be missing out on anything. If I've made a horrible mistake then feel free to drop me a PM or whatever and we'll square that away because, well, human error and all. Otherwise, this is nothing personal and I wish everyone nothing but the best in 2012.

Yo, people, watch Prime Suspect. It is the legit greatest. And NBC is cancelling it, which is a sad, sad fact that has practically reduced me to tears BECAUSE I LOVE IT SO, but you should still all watch it and maybe the fates will intervene. The acting/writing is quality, the chemistry is top-notch, and Kirk Acevedo's face continues to ruin my life. So. Watch. It airs on Thursdays. Today is Thursday. Clearly this is meant to be.

fic [chuck]: dialogue as a diagram of a play for blood {casey/sarah}

Title: Dialogue As A Diagram Of A Play For Blood
Fandom: Chuck
Characters/Pairings: Casey/Sarah
Rating: R
Word Count: 1,784
Warnings: Violence.
Author's Note: Some of this can be blamed on my television/film viewing habits of the past few days. The rest of it I choose to blame on Tumblr. I might have snagged a line of dialogue from someone's ask that wasn't even directed at me. Whoopsies. Forgive me for my sins.
Summary: Partially AU from S1. They break things, they don’t fix them. Walls and bones and rules and resolve; it all crumbles the same.

fic [chuck]: chuck vs. la dolce vita (ensemble, au series)

title: chuck vs. la dolce vita
fandom: chuck
character/pairings: ensemble. bryce/carina, bryce/chuck, for this part; various others implied.
rating: r
word count: 16,629
author's note: fair warning: i had a very hard time with this. i also wrote the last several sections with people on top of my roof, so i will own any and all spelling errors that occured, though i think i've gotten rid of the bulk of them. i'm sorry this took so long.
summary: part three of an au series. sarah tries to juggle an accidental date and a tempermental partner, as they fight to keep their jobs in light of the incident in vail. carina's presence puts an added strain on chuck and bryce's relationship, both professional and personal.

don't give in, like the very last bowling pin )

title: our book won't close
fandom: the west wing
character/pairings: josh/amy, slight josh/donna
rating: pg-13
word count: 2,833
author's note: i started writing this in a hotel in d.c., during a heatwave. i finished during a flood. if that doesn't help explain the constant presence of weather during this, i don't know what will. it's also worth mentioning that i haven't seen season 6/7 in quite some time, so if my facts are slightly off we can just say it's au and call it a day. lastly, this is angsty. whoops. unbeta'd.
summary: post-series. scenes from a three day vacation in your past.

title: with band-aids and safety pins
fandom: weeds
character/pairings: andy(+/)nancy. really up to reader interpretation.
rating: r
word count: 2,526
author's note: last monday i was expecting a fight that i didn't get, so i wrote one. this is more cathartic than anything else, and it's one of those single scene post-eps that i used to write years ago, so this is an odd change of pace for me, personally. unbeta'd.
summary: post 'vehement vs. vigorous'. he's taken to locking things up.

all the building fronts are just fronts )

author's note: written for [livejournal.com profile] gigglemonster for the non-canon ficathon. unbeta'd.

fic: [the good wife] an honest living {cary/kalinda}

Title: An Honest Living
Fandom: The Good Wife
Characters/Pairings: Cary/Kalinda
Rating: R
Word Count: 1,130
Author's Note: For [livejournal.com profile] waltzmatildah who wanted 5 defeats. I may have taken that metaphorically as well as literally. And yes, I'm just as stunned that I wrote this as you probably are. It's worth noting here that I'm a casual viewer and as such my canon might be a little screwy. Don't hit me. I tried. Finally, thank you [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] for the encouragement.
Summary: They are the kind of people who revel in each other's losses. Professionally speaking.

Title: We've Got No Chance Of Recovery
Fandom: Grey's Anatomy
Characters/Pairings: Alex/Lexie, Jackson/Lexie, slight Alex/Meredith.
Rating: R
Word Count: 1,044
Author's Note: For [livejournal.com profile] rorylie who wanted 'Five Times Alex and Lexie kissed'. This is a very rough interpretation of that prompt and got too long to fit in a comment. My apologies if this sucks; my frame of mind is really interesting these days. Angst warning goes here.
Summary: Lexie has come to let these men define her.

fic: [grey's] close your eyes to exit {alex/lexie, jackson/lexie}

Title: Close Your Eyes To Exit
Fandom: Grey's Anatomy
Characters/Pairings: Alex/Lexie, Jackson/Lexie, halfway implied Alex/Jackson/Lexie.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3,084
Author's Note: I wrote this in early April, rediscovered it Wednesday, and then tacked on a few extra scenes. Originally based off of [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]'s request for 'five years after the shooting' fic, except she wanted Alex/Lexie and this spiraled. Ignores canon from the last handful of episodes, which is probably for the best. Also, references to television shows I'm not even a fan of is what you get at 3am.
Summary: Future-fic. What's mine is yours and what's yours is mine and this nightmare is certainly ours.

Rating: R
Word Count: 3,158
Warnings: Character death.
Author's Note: I've been more or less on the fence about posting this for a day or two but I finally said what the hell and went through with it. All I can say is this is an experiment.
Summary: Future-fic. The thing about the noose around your neck: after a while, you forget how to breathe anyway.
