…very quickly, while Beam and RR [livejournal.com profile] rromantic is having a screaming match again.

All of it is Beam’s own fault of course. It’s been raining non-stop the last couple of days, and RR told him he wasn’t going to come NEAR the laptop if he goes galavanting outside, getting his little paws and fur all wet and muddy.

He, of course, didn’t pay her any attention, came home the other night and wanted to start answering the comments to his Purr-fect love chapter 9 story.

Which is when the fighting started. She refuses to let him come anywhere near the keyboard, and he refuses to dictate his replies and let her type it, or let her write her own.

I’m not sure when they’re going to resolve this. She’s having breakfast with her grandmother this morning, and then it’s off to work, where, I am very proud to say, she’s finally starting to actually earn her salary and not play with BJ all day long.

So I’m guessing they’ll get around to “discussing” it again late this afternoon.

I wanted to do the decent thing and let everyone, who hasn’t heard from Beam yet, know what’s going on.

Oh!!!! Other news (and Beam is SO going to kill me for this!!!!)

JUSTIN HAS BEEN DRAWING PICTURES OF BEAM!!!!!

They are fucking fabulously beautiful (Justin can make any subject matter look gorgeous!)!!! I’ve peeked in RR’s inbox, she received the final drawing last night… !!!

I’ll try to post it sometime. If RR and Beam keeps carrying on like this, it shouldn’t be too difficult. Even though Beam WILL scatter me!!!

aaaannnddd... number 2 is up!!!

[livejournal.com profile] emily_sheppard has posted her entry for the "Bubbly" theme challenge at [livejournal.com profile] boys4all, and omg... IT'S FUCKING HOT!!!!!

If you're a Torchwood fan, and the thought of Jack and Ianto gives you all sorts of delicious shivers, have a peek at "Would you care for some bubbly?" here.

Even if you don't know the show, go on... go and have a read... you don't have to be familiar with the characters to enjoy the hotness of two beautiful boys together! *wicked grin*.

Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] emily_sheppard!!! SO glad your muse decided to come play with us!!!

Yeah!!!

The first fic for our "Bubbly" challenge at [livejournal.com profile] boys4all is up!! You GO [livejournal.com profile] purpleplanets!!!

It's a Brian/Justin, sort of post 513, AU satire.

I absolutely ADORE it, but then my brain is more warped then even hers is. I do have it on good authority that [livejournal.com profile] akintay and [livejournal.com profile] freakykat thought it's quite readable, if you'd rather trust them recommendating it. *grins*

Link to "Blowing bubbles" here.

Leave her some love if you liked the story, and if you don't do satire... please don't be nasty about it, we're all just having fun!!!

Not my fault, I REFUSE to look like the disorganized one!! It was NOT my responsibility to remember all about schools and universities and other stupid real-life excuses for making the challenge deadline!!

Please remember to let us know if you think you’re going to participate (we won’t hold you to it!), by just replying to this post.

More time, more stories… I still say this means each of you can do at least two thingies, since you now have all the time in the world!

Yeah, later.

Oooooohhhh, I can't tell you how excited I am about this one!! Finally, FINALLY, Beam agreed and said I can help!! *furiously going through ideas index*

Bubbly, and any variation of it, e.g. bubbling, bubbles etc.
Deadline: Wednesday, 5 March 2008. Entries must be posted before 11:59:59, GMT - 10 hours, i.e. Hawaii time. Let me know if you need to borrow some of my particles to add to your fingers for working that one out!

Oh wow, so many awesome stories for our “In the dark” challenge!!!! Although I haven’t read all of it yet, because RR’s [livejournal.com profile] rromantic been dragging her feet something disgustingly getting around to [livejournal.com profile] freakykat's, [livejournal.com profile] dana_serenity’s and [livejournal.com profile] emily_sheppard’s. Some shit about Beam tapping his little furry paw about “Purr-fect love” getting attention RIGHT NOW.

Don’t worry, though, I know for a fact she’s got those three masterpieces downloaded to her hard drive, and the moment I’m done here I’m going to insist on reading them immediately. Time for her next dose of ice cream in any case, so I should have a couple of minutes of peace and quiet.

Especially since Beam’s given up, he’s draped over her legs with Patat. Can’t really blame him, it’s the most awesomely beautiful day outside, and we’re spending it on the veranda. She’s happier than I’ve seen her in a long time.

“In the dark,” our first [livejournal.com profile] boys4all challenge, has closed, and I think it was a spectacular success. Thanks so much for everyone who entered, and yeah for all the new members!! *particles shifts excitedly*

[livejournal.com profile] freakykat and I have talked it over, and we’re definitely continuing with the community, putting up a new challenge every two weeks, so please GO PIMP in the other fandoms!!

We are therefore also in need of the second theme. Anything and all suggestions welcome, bizarre and weird is all good! If your plot bunny’s jumping up and down screaming, please direct him/her/it/them my or [livejournal.com profile] freakykat’s way and just comment to this post, or send me an email at ridiculously.romantic75@ gmail.com (just remove the space after the “@”. Either myself or [livejournal.com profile] freakykat will make the announcement for the next round ASAP.

Greatness!!

rromantic: (BJ B&W)
It’s all Beam’s fault. We got into an argument about Brian/Justin and Jack/Ianto. He’s still very upset about TW even being in the house, and when he found out I opened the “In the dark” challenge for all boy-on-boy pairings, he got all hissing and spitting mad.

RR heard the racket, and subsequently found out about the challenge – which I was trying to keep as a surprise for her.

She now insists on participating herself, but there is no way she’ll be done on time, sssoooo… we’re extending the deadline until Tuesday, 12 February 2008, at 23:55 Hawaii Time.

Hope that works for everyone?

The list so far:

[livejournal.com profile] wouldbedorothy: GR
[livejournal.com profile] freakykat: JI (I think)
[livejournal.com profile] ladybugkay: JI
[livejournal.com profile] akintay: JB
[livejournal.com profile] we_dreamerz: JB
[livejournal.com profile] rromantic: JB

No competition, no judging, no formal entering, anyone can participate. Fics must be posted on [livejournal.com profile] boys4all anytime before the deadline.

Monday, and RR [livejournal.com profile] rromantic’s actually given me permission to work on the laptop!

She’s busy filing, sweeping the fire hazard from her table. A bit unusual, I’m used to staplers and drawers and punches, but she says storing the heaps of paper in the trash can is much more effective. The cleaning lady will pick it up with that big bag of hers, keeping them all neatly together in one place.

Thumpa’s running commentary on RR's RL, BJ universe and everything else )

There we go… RR’s done with the filing, and done talking to the ex as well. I’m about to be chased off.

wwwhhheeehhhh!!! I've got my own thingie-me-gic... what's the word... [personal profile] freakykat suggested it... yeah! Community!!! And I fucking did it all by my own, go Thumpa!! *wildly floats around*

which *particles shift embarrassed* is why there’s not a default user pic. Anyone? Please send me something beautiful to go with our new hang-out spot? RR [livejournal.com profile] rromantic is useless with that, just complains about the internet connection again when I ask (that is getting so ooolllddd!!!).

I haven't even touched the subject of designing the journal with her, so please? Another anyone?

Responses to the “In the dark” challenges can be posted to [livejournal.com profile] boys4all, as soon as you join. I’ve also posted the original challenge to [livejournal.com profile] boys4all, including the deadline, and some other questions you guys sent me.

Please pimp as much as you want. Maybe this will work, maybe it won’t, but personally I would love to have one place where I can drool about all the boys, since my world is rapidly expanding beyond BJ (dddooonnn’ttt tell Beam!)

There we go… hope I got everything right… oh, wait! I did want to ask, does any of you know of something similar already created? ‘Cause then we need to kill this one and move over to the existing community.

Wednesday afternoon, and we’ve had no power outages (yet?)! RR’s grumpily gone off somewhere, my turn on the laptop! She’s been like this since last night. We were working on [livejournal.com profile] sexy_pumpkin’s 307 fic, when halfway through she just decided she didn’t feel like it anymore. Needless to say, Beam wasn’t impressed.

She did pick up on it again this morning, though, and actually managed to get enough done to send it to her beta for a look, but… shit, on this one I have to agree with Beam, I wish she would just the fuck get her ass in front of her desk, and start doing something about her shit-list. She’s stressing and queening and throwing all sorts of tantrums, today’s being “Who give’s a fuck,” and all of it because she’s procrastinating, knows it, and is doubly de MOER in at herself for it.

We could have finished the current fic, if the time she spent writing self-pity emails to every poor soul that had the unfortunate luck of daring to ask how she’s doing, was put to better use!!

*mutters in Afrikaans*

What really pisses me off, the “In the dark” challenge? Obviously it’s suppose to be a surprise for her (I might be reconsidering that), so she’s not participating in the challenge. But I gave her the most fabulous idea for it weeks ago, which she’s not allowed to start on, until she’s completed her other two fics, and of course [livejournal.com profile] sexy_pumpkin’s.

We could have been working on my shaving cream brilliance by no, but nnnooooo… we’re fucking sulking.

*pulls particles together*

Thanks for everyone’s enthusiasm about the challenge! I’ve been asked about deadlines, so let’s say midnight, your local time, Sunday 9 February 2008. Is that too soon? I don’t know how long it takes to complete something, I never do the writing, and RR is clearly no good example.

With regards to the “at least serious kissing”- part, that means at least a good tongue fuck. I LLOOOVVEEE those!!

I’m meeting Beam in front of the office in a couple of minutes, I asked him to come over and sneer some sense into RR’s blond brain.

Thumpa

ridiculously.romantic75@ gmail.com
rromantic: (BJ B&W)
Don’t tell Beam or RR about this. Beam, because he might just actually really try to kill me this time (yes, I’m only a “dust-cloud,” but I don’t like claws swiping at my particles!), and RR, because I would like to surprise her.

I suggested the idea to Dolores ([livejournal.com profile] purpleplanets) when we had the first power outage a couple of weeks ago, but she pulled her skirt over her head *no-mental-image-no-mental-image-no-mental-image* and made for the bush. I haven’t seen her since.

[livejournal.com profile] akintay, however, likes it, and she’s convinced me to give RR’s flist the challenge:

Anything with “in the dark,” but not using it as the title, I gave that to [livejournal.com profile] litlemspowerful
WARNING: No character deaths, not even the flowers Brian didn’t buy Justin may wither. If their car dies because it ran out of petrol, it did anything but spluttered it’s last. MUST be “happily ever after.” A ridiculously romantic “happily ever after” is the best. If we fuck-up on this... let’s just don’t. Emmett’s queening is at least entertaining.


1. Any pairings, but only boys playing, Brian/Justin, Gale/Randy, Jack/Ianto etc., incl DC comics ([livejournal.com profile] ladybugkay? *would have batted eyelashes if had any*)
2. Must have smut, minimum very smootchy, romantic kissing, to BDSM and raw-fucking, but please no rape, or m-preg (she’s not stable enough at the moment)
3. Fanfic, ficlets, pornlets, dabbles, lyrics, vids, banners, userpics, and every other worship method I might have forgotten
4. Canon and/or AU, sci-fi, humor, angst, x-overs with books, movies, tv series etc. The weirdest story will get Beam for a day
5. Whatever makes RR cry the most (must be *puddled* tears!) …uhm… doesn’t get Beam?
6. I’ve never done this before – do you need a deadline or something (oohhh… RR HATES those…)

Poor RR runs the risk of double darkness this week, the power cuts are continuing, and she might need to work some long hours to catch up on work she’s fallen behind on, since she spends more time on LJ than intelligently moving around thousands of little numbers on her laptop screen. She’s on BJ-diet this week (and growling like them too, but not in the same fun way!), so we can use her email address: ridiculously.romantic75@ gmail.com (just remove the space between the “@” and “gmail.com”).

To top (*let’s!*) her Monday, it sounds like rain (again), and that’s a guaranteed mood-darkener right there. I’d better go save Beam, and get her bubbles and steaming water and candlelight ready.

Hope you have fun!

It's gone far beyond funny.

I make a point of not getting involved in politics, avoid following the news, and reading the papers. Unless you’re participating in the game on the powers-that-be level, there’s nothing to be gained from watching rape, murder, death and destruction resulting from humanity’s on-going fucked-up choices on a daily basis.

At least, I can’t be that involved with RL’s shit. It fucking kills me, while making my medical health insurance rich beyond Teddie’s wildest (wet) dreams.

While the rest of the country has been hoarding candles at the premonitions, doomsday-sayers, expectations, assumptions, wishes, threats and forecasts that power black-outs will be occurring even more frequently, I finally made my peace this week and accepted that a very big part of my life now consists of experiencing the fucking stone age for myself (oh, mineminemineminemine, I got it! How brilliant would a BJ x-over with the Flintstones be?! *RR thumps Thumpa and his idea off the table*).

After all, things can’t go completely to shit, can they? Reports about power availability becoming even more of a problem over the next 5 to 7 years can’t be true. Surely I misunderstood our top six… FUCKING ALL SIX!!!... biggest gold and platinum mines have shutdown today for an indefinite period, because the irregular power black-outs threatens the lives of their workers.

Oh, and those workers? Millions of them? They’re now faced with the possibility of unemployment. Cerias.

Trading of gold shares fell with more than 11% on the world markets at the news, a knock that big (don’t even THINK of saying it!!) apparently an unprecedented occurrence on the metal markets (don’t quote me, I know fuck-all about how to make money, it’s never stayed with me long enough for us to have a deep (NO!) and meaningful relationship) in 42 thousand years.

Our economy lost millions and millions of Rands.

The most beautiful country in the whole goddamn world and they’re letting it go to shit with a fucking government that “broke its silence today and acknowledged that we are experiencing a nation-wide power crisis, and uhm… yeah… we will also admit that it’s because of poor planning.”

Bliksemse fokkers!!!!

And… that is why I don’t watch the news or read the papers. Look what it does to my language.

It does, however, become a bit much to ignore, not to mention the inconvenience, when the lights go out around you, and it’s suddenly so fucking dark that your head can’t find it’s way out of the sand. And fucking scary shit too if it’s brighter inside your head than around it. Big ears could have its uses, your very own little lanterns, hands-free.

I don’t believe… it just can’t be true… not my country…

Thanks for stopping by Africa, where we guarantee you will get away from all the hustle and bustle and pleasantries of city life. Here you can stand in the middle of the fucking capital city and see the wwwhooolllleeee Milky way! Look how much prettier it sparkles? Who needs streetlights when you can have romance under the stars… Wasn’t that Zaphod Beeblebrox and The heart of Gold time-fucking past Earth?!

I’m now accepting all candle donations, please let me know if you’d like to contribute to the “not-light-a-candle-for-but-send-a-candle-to-RR” cause. I especially like the fragrant ones. But not lavender-smells. Or pink candles *EEEKK!!*. Blue wax tastes the best, those would be great, thanks.

My day started with much better tears *wildly smooches [livejournal.com profile] qafmaniac one last time… really… promise… last time today!* than it’s ending.

Guys… *sobbs helplessly*

20:54. Sleeping pills, oh thy beauty be…

*turns out the bedroom light* … WTF?! … oh, yes, silly me. Forgot my poor house has been relieved of the fire in its veins.

Goeiefokkenmoersebli… *sleep pills kick in*

To RR’s flist from Thumpa: fucking finally… she’s gone to sleep, Beam (Justin said it’s fine if he stays for the weekend to keep an eye on the “house of queens,” as Beam putts it *sticks tongue out at Beam*) and Patat is curled up on either side of her, they’re practicing to be her new “electrical blankets” for next winter.

She didn’t get around to doing any of the LJ stuff she’s been chasing me and Beam off the laptop for. Emails and comments, I think, but I’m sure she’ll be much better company tomorrow.

[livejournal.com profile] qafmaniac, thank you for my… OMG… I promised myself I wouldn’t cry…

*Thumpa runs off in search of dry towel*
rromantic: (butt to steel beam)
Our scheduled power loadshedding for Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, happened this morning at 8:04 am.

Of course it did.

*shrugs* I've made my peace with it.

Applauded when the server alarms went off, packed my bags, waved at my colleagues although they couldn’t see me, and went home (where the power is also down).

I’m now stretched out on my fully-horizontal-tilting-outdoor chair, watching the grass grow, because yes, indeed, it is still raining.

And yes, I’m still at serious trouble at work. Not in the sense that I’ve been called in, but I’m very, very, very far behind on my shit-list. Reason? Can’t possibly be anything but BJ and LJ. Oh, wait – with a bit of Jack and Ianto thrown in.

I finally managed last night to start going through all the comments I still want to respond to, and drafted a whole bunch of answers. I didn’t send it due to, once again, all the little lights blinking at me, before going softly to sleep. Shit… I hope they’re just sleeping and didn’t die?! A blown up network server is no fun, really no fun at all.

However, in spite of all that, I’m still smiling, because Purr-fect Love 8 is posted!!! I’m a tiny bit excited about that…

If all goes well, the power should be back in about 3 hours. Should. Shouldshouldshould. In the meantime I’ll be a good little worker bee and try to organize my to do list into what-must-I-do-FIRST-when-the-lights-sparkle-again.

Once that’s done… BJ!!! Beam!!! Thumpa!!!

Thumpa’s showed me his notes on his visit to BJ last weekend with Beam, and it doesn’t look too bad, considering it’s a plot bunny doing the muse’s writing. More queen than even I am, and I suspect Beam’s going to go at it with a heavy hand. I kind of like it though, it's something completely, completely different. Maybe this time I shouldn't let Beam do the editing...

Thumpa returned all starry-eyed and dreamy-looking - as much as a dust-cloud can look to be in love. Apparently they had some sort of an anniversary celebration going at Britin, and Thumpa and Beam arrived just in time to watch the… uhm… festivities.

I don’t know when we’ll see that story. Thumpa is being tight-lipped about dates and deadlines.

2 hr 15 min battery life remaining. Guess I should put that to RL use.

*hugs*
RR
rromantic: (noses)
Thumpa, you forgot to flock your entry.

Did I say useless? I meant... let's leave it, I'm too well mannered for this.

Your idea for a third story has potential, I'll talk to you about it at Britin.

Please go back to work and finish your replies on the comments heaped up in RR's inbox.

Beam
rromantic: (butt to steel beam)
…hold on… I know how to do this… *clicks HTML thingie*… *go get carrot while page loads*…

I knew it can’t be that difficult! *crunch*

Beam said I’ll never be able to get the hang of LJ, that I’m useless with computers. I don’t know what that means, I haven’t been called “useless” before, and RR is hogging the dictionary. Her English is not very good. If it wasn’t for Beam and [livejournal.com profile] wouldbedorothy, she’d probably never post any fics. She does know “as he holds him” and “makes his knees go weak” and “kisses until he gasps for air,” so the emotional parts Beam lets her write isn’t too bad. *crunch-crunch*

Just because I’m from the Troposphere does not mean I don’t know how stuff in RL works!

On the contrary. I might not be a techno-boffin, and I might not be much to look at (okay, very little to look at, I’m a bit more see-through in this dimension than I anticipated!) does not mean I’m not a good plot bunny!

So what if I need BJ training (by the way, oh my Apollo… Brian is so hot!!! *crunc-cru-crunch excitedly*It’s going to be fabulous thinking about him all the time!)… Where was… oh, yes. So what if I need BJ training, and so what if I got the “dig up” part a bit wrong?

“Wortel” is the one Afrikaans word I learned before meeting RR, since I don’t particularly fancy going back to the Troposphere even more wispy-looking than I am now. It’s not my fault it can mean either “carrot” or “root.” RR told me to find a “wortel,” and I brought back a root. At least it was the biggest one I could find in that mess of a jungle she calls her “garden.” *crunch*

Besides, it doesn’t matter whether I passed Beam’s idea of testing my capabilities. Who digs up ideas, anyway? Ideas either come, or they don’t. It’s all about putting them to work before they go off all over the place, looking for someone else to inspire. Best to use them while they’re still whole and available.

I must remember to send [livejournal.com profile] foreverfolked a “thank you.” The fanfic idea she requested from RR is completely outside of Beam’s area of expertise, but since I’m from a boundary-free environment, and there’s no limits or rules on my thinking, I should be able to help RR.

I’ve already come up with a brilliant idea for RR’s next story, once she’s done with her current two. Beam’s a good writer, I’m sure he will enjoy her third fanfic, especially since he will be in it. He can be a bit vain.

I think I need to lock my private posts, Beam might not appreciate all my thoughts.

…how did this work again… *stares at screen*… *crunch-crunch thoughtfully*… I think it’s the “Post to rromantic” button…

*clicks “Post to rro-*
