SO... I have come out of hibernation to say MERRY CHRISTMAS (or whatever y'all celebrate, it's all good), and also...


Specifically, that Bernard/Charlie fic that's been on my WIPs list since 2008. I KNOW.


Go read it. And stuff. <3

Way, way back, when I was but a wee baby!bandomer (AKA August, 2009), I wrote a little Frank/Gerard-ish fic called Vampires Will Never Hurt You (But I Make No Promises About Zombies)

This fic was, in a word, ridiculous. It sprang from this idea I had about wee!Gerard who had a disease that made him kind of like a vampire (he can't go out in the sun), and wee!Frank who thinks wee!Gerard is THE MOST AWESOME PERSON ON EARTH, and their adorable fourth-grade love. It was only 1,400 words, and an elementary school AU, and while I did get some lovely feedback when I posted it, and I was a bit in love with my wee!boys, I moved on to other parts of bandom and didn't exactly forget about Vampires, but I mostly put it behind me as a first effort in bandom, and a cute enough little fic for what it was.

Fast forward.

This evening, I posted the sequel to Vampires. It's called You Only Hear the Music When Your Heart Begins to Break, and it's 13,700 words of high school fic set in the same universe.

There is really only one reason that this fic exists at all, and that's because [ profile] psuedo_catalyst asked me about what high school held for my Vampires versions of Frank and Gerard, and got me thinking about it, and then proceeded to be very excited every time I talked about it after that. (Which just goes to show that if you want fic from me, clearly the way to go about it is to actually ask me stuff when I post writing questions memes. XD )

Now, I LOVE that, okay, totally love that anyone would like my silly little fic enough to want a sequel that much. But I probably wouldn't have devoted a post to it, not really, but then [ profile] isweedan mentioned something very similar tonight on Twitter, and I just felt the need to post about it.

Because it's AWESOME, of course, but also a little weird to me, that people not only read my little elementary school AU, but really did like it, and even remember it.

I'm not even sure what the point of this post is, other than that I am mystified when stuff like this happens, because I don't think of myself as the sort of person whose fics people remember, or demand sequels to. So it's weird to me, but it also means so much, and makes me so happy when people tell me stuff like that.

So perhaps the point of this post is to encourage everyone: if you like someone's stuff, comment and say so.

I'm not going to claim I'm perfect at this myself, because I'm not. But even though it's not New Year's yet, I think I'm making that my resolution. I will try to be better about telling people when I really love their stories, because I know how much it means to me to hear things like that. It's amazing what the smallest comment can do to make someone feel good and happy and valued.

New Fic!

solarcat: (SGA (McShep) -- Pier)
Title: Physics Error #36
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Pairing: McShep
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: 545
Summary: The fully indexed and cross-referenced database of all the scientific errors in Wormhole X-Treme! serves no actual purpose whatsoever (except to make Rodney feel better that at least someone noticed all the ways in which the show got it wrong, wrong, wrong), but everyone needs a hobby.
Notes: For [personal profile] ocelotspots, because the ideas we have at 3AM are sometimes too fun not to write. *g*
solarcat: (Bandom (Pete) -- Nun)
Title: Zombies Ate Your Idols (They Were Delicious)
Fandom: Bandom (MCR) / American Idol 8
Author: [ profile] solar_cat
Pairing: Adam/Kris pre-slash (with hints of Adam/Kris/Katy?), Frank/Gerard stage!(?)gay (No, seriously, no one has any actual sex so I DON'T KNOW WHAT THIS IS. D= )
Rating: PG-13.
Wordcount: ~3,200
Warnings: Highly unrealistic. This would never actually happen. Like, really, never.

Summary: In which Gerard Way takes a stand against discrimination, Adam Lambert discovers the importance of dice, Kris Allen is not kidnapped against his will, and the folks at 19E learn to love the stage!(?)gay. Welcome to the Zombies Ate Your Idols tour, 2010!

Notes: Huge THANK YOU!!! to [ profile] zeenell and [ profile] b_dsaint for their truly phenomenal beta work, without which this fic would be even MORE implausible and ridiculous. <3!

Zombies Ate Your Idols (They Were Delicious)
solarcat: (Bandom (Pete) -- Nun)
I wrote more fic! And yes, I have committed bandom again. I will repent of my sins... um... someday? XD

Title: Spyro! (Or, The One Where Spencer is a Small Purple Dragon)
Author: [profile] solar_cat
Fandom: Bandom: PATD/TYV, FoB, tiny amounts of CS and TAI.
Pairing: PATD/TYV GSF, minor Pete/Patrick, hints of Gabe/William
Rating: PG
Wordcount: ~9,000
Warnings: Ridiculousness. Author who has read too much Discworld. Scarves?

Summary: It took Spencer approximately five seconds to realize he had wings.

Notes: This fic is entirely [profile] monroe_nell's fault. She commented on Twitter about how the shorthand for Spencer/Ryan was "Spyro", which only made her think about the video games. To which I replied, well, obviously Spencer Smith is a small purple dragon! And then suddenly I was writing this fic. XD Except, of course, I'm a huge Spencer/Brendon shipper, so my only recourse was to make it GSF. Sorry, "Spyro" OTP-ers! XD Remarkably, I have written self-indulgent fic with a plot! I am amazed at myself! \0/

HUGE thanks go out to [profile] monroe_nell and [personal profile] sansets for their endless enthusiasm for this fic! I couldn't have done it without you! <333


Which means I get to do THIS:

23772 / 50000 words. 48% done!

WHOOO-HOOO!!!!\0/ \0/ \0/ I BROKE 20k!!!! HELL YES!!! \0/ \0/ \0/

That's right. I committed bandom fic. *hangs head* Well, no going back now.

Title: Vampires Will Never Hurt You (But I Make No Promises About Zombies)
Author: [ profile] solar_cat
Fandom: Bandom | MCR
Pairing: Frank/Gerard pre-slash
Rating: G
Wordcount: 1420
Warnings: None that I can think of. Elementary school!AU? Is that a warning?

Summary: Gerard clenches his fists tighter. "It's a disease," he says defensively.

Notes: So I had this idea for a fic where Gerard and Frank are in elementary school and Gerard has this disease that makes him kind of like a vampire, but Frank thinks it's kind of cool and also Gerard draws pictures of zombie massacres. This would be that fic. XD Great liberties have been taken with the fabric of reality. Many, many thanks to [ profile] monroe_nell for the encouragement and for looking this over for me! <3

Seriously, you should watch out for zombies...

And hey, combining posts!

14772 / 50000 words. 30% done!
