Today's treat is a bit of nostalgia. I was going to link you to the video clip for one of them, but I couldn't find it. So instead you get just the screencap.

This is from one of my most favorite filmed moments ever. It's from Project Greenlight, and it's Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. Ben's smoking as they talk. Matt gets up, gets his cigarettes out of his pocket, takes Ben's cigarette to light his own, and puts Ben's back in his hand, and Ben just keeps talking like he doesn't even notice. It's so smooth, and to me reads of such an easy intimacy.

Bonus screencap of Ben's hand casually resting on Matt's knee. There's a reason they're one of my original OTPs.

Today's song is a shout-out to all those old-school DamonAffleck fangirls still hanging around. I have this version of Stevie Nicks' "Edge of Seventeen" on Live Planet & Beyond! (The EP), where the track listing [ profile] lakeeffectgirl sent with the CD describes it as "(The Ballad of Matt & Ben As Teenagers)."

Part 1

This is the last one for today. The idea for this was that Matt kidnaps Layne Ulrich (Lars and Skylar's son), and brings him home to Ben. Ben eventually realizes who Layne is, and decides to keep him anyway. At least, until the FBI figures things out and comes to take Layne away.

Overall Con Theme
Too much SGA. Seriously, people, too much.

Catch Phrase of the Weekend I
"Your vagina is not a purse."

Catch Phrase of the Weekend II
"Penis, penis, vagina."

Bad Story Concept
We were talking about AUs, and someone told us about a lotrips AU. In this AU, Viggo is a teacher at a boarding school that Orlando attends. This sounds good, right? But then whoever it was told us the rest of the plot: Viggo is actually undercover looking for alien activity, and Orlando is an alien but doesn't know it.

Bunny for Sale
The consuite is actually an old nightclub, which had Molly and I trying to think of old nightclub AUs. Here's one I'll probably never write: Angel was Spike's something (father, brother, lover, mentor), but he died recently and left all his money to Spike. Spike takes this money and buys an old, rundown nightclub. His accountant, Willow, suggests that he might hire her best friend/client Xander to do the renovations. Spike instinctively introduces himself to Xander as William, which only Angel ever called him. Faith, Buffy, and Riley are all members of Xander's crew. At this point, you should insert some handwaving about Spike and Xander starting to fall in love/lust. As part of this, Xander brings in a fabulously beautiful wood bar, and it's Willow who tells Spike that Xander actually made it himself. Eventually, at Spike's request, Xander makes exactly the kind of desk Spike needs for the office upstairs. And there's some Spike and Xander having sex in the apartment upstairs during club hours.

Ah, the dealers room. I got the Firefly pics I wanted for my blank wall, and I bought another Spike picture for my Angel and Spike wall which will now have to curve around the corner. I also bought two very pretty Willow and Giles pics. I have no idea what I'm going to do with them, but they're pretty.

Girl, Unidentified
There was one particular fan who never wore her nametag that we took to referring to as Hot Girl. The only thing I heard her say was in the femslash panel where she said the LA lesbian community she's familiar with does not look like the community on The L Word. She also spent a lot of time hanging out with [ profile] hederahelix. If you know who Hot Girl is, please let us know; we want to stalk her on LJ. Hot Girl, if you're reading this, we appreciated looking at you, and we mean the stalking you on LJ thing to be complimentary and not creepy.

Thursday Evening
While lounging about in the lobby, we halfheartedly searched for [ profile] soobunny. This consisted of us asking people, "Has anyone seen Soo?" Someone asked us, "What's her last name?" To which we, of course, answered, "Bunny."

Friday Morning
First up: Angel panel. I'd yet to actually see my co-moderator, but there she was in the panel. I was not prepared for this panel, and, uh, I don't really remember much of it. I tried pimping The S Curve, but people didn't seem too interested.

Friday Afternoon
After snacking instead of real lunch, it was time for the Research for Fic panel. This was less about how to do research and more about how to work that research into your story. Again, too much SGA. However, this was where we discovered that more people than we know are into boutique-y fandoms, as one woman was reading a gargantuan book on the pox for research for a Libertine story (I think; maybe Libertine was someone else).

Then we stayed in the same room for the Beta Circle. I greatly appreciated that this was scheduled for Friday afternoon, because it meant that people could take things with them. There were only a few people there, but I think we got some good work done. I have to admit that I haven't yet read all the comments people left for me, but I definitely appreciated those of Glass Houses, who asked sensible things like, "What is he tied to?" and "Wouldn't that take a long time?"

At some point, we swung through the fannish tradeshow, but that was it for Friday panels.

Friday Evening
We ducked out of the party early (as in after about five minutes) and went back to the hotel room to watch, um, something that had a lot of ads for Armageddon the next night.

Saturday Morning
Litslash: Again, I was unprepared. Again, boutique-y fandom people. Dine had just given Molly a copy of Luck in the Shadows, so we even had a visual aid. Molly kept the list of litslash fandoms we came up with. I only remember a few. The most interesting thing to me was the discussion of fan ficcing the fan fic. No one seemed to think anything much of it.

Saturday Afternoon
Religion and Slash: It seemed interesting, but it started out way more about the religion of slashers than religion in fic, so I took myself back down to the con suite.

Eroica: I expected this to be a small panel. What I hadn't realized was that there are no Eroica fans who are also young folk. The funniest moment of the panel was when one of the attendees started complaining about a classic slash plot, which is almost exactly the plot of the Eroica epic I'll probably never finish. Best plot bunny of the panel: Dorian is really deep under cover working for MI-[some number].

DamonAffleck: This panel was myself, Molly, Soo, Charles, and Meagan watching video clips and dividing up the merchandise Molly brought for us. The cigarette smoking thing! Ben's hand on Matt's knee! Ben jumping on Chris Moore!

Dykes on Parade: Mmm, femslash panel. The panel was again awesome, but it really needs to be on the main track. I have the list we made in the panel of femslash places and pairings, and I promise I will type it up in the next couple of days.

Saturday Night
Molly and I played a little bit of He-He, but we were very tired, so after only a few rounds, we headed back to our room to watch the end of Armageddon.

Sunday Morning
This year, we actually made it downstairs in time for breakfast. Of course, we were running later than everyone else, so we ended up, just the four of us, at the table way back in the corner.

Sunday Afternoon
The Absence of Color in Black and White Fan Fiction: This was the best panel I went to all weekend. It was awesome, and Con and Lady J brought academic handouts, which made it even more awesome. (I occasionally have the urge to read academic handouts, but I don't know what to read.)

Jay and Silent Bob: This panel was myself, Molly, Soo, Charles, and Meagan (Elek joined us at some point) watching Charles' highlight reel and discussing both the recs handout Charles brought and the list of fanon. We discovered that my brain full of Jay and Silent Bob is still in action. On the list of fanon is "Jay gives good blow jobs," which is totally canon. In the Clerks comic, Jay gets a job as a fluffer, but gets fired because he's too good at it.

RPS: Ah, the RPS panel. Where everyone loves the RPS and if anyone doesn't, they know not to show up at the panel.

Escapade Review: This was the worst panel I went to all weekend. Instead of really encouraging new people to lead panels, they seemed to be discouraging people who lead panels to either not lead them or lead fewer, and it seemed really negative. They are, however, looking for ideas about how to get more young folk to come to Escapade. If you have any, let them know.

Sunday Evening
Dead Dog Party in the con suite. Woo-hoo! We stayed until the last people were filtering out, and then we went back to our room. Where we found the best TV show ever: Bailando por un sueƱo which appears to feature some people dancing, then celebrities giving roses and candles to people with sob stories, and then some other people dancing. It was hilarious.

Then we got Molly hooked on Grey's Anatomy.

Monday Morning
We got out of the hotel fairly early, and so we found time to visit a mall that was not a mall. It seemed to consist of a Borders, some movie theaters, and a lot of restaurants.

Monday Evening
I decided to have dinner at LAX. I went to the chain clam chowder in a bread bowl place. This was a bad idea. First of all, I burned my tongue. I have burned my tongue every time I've had their soup. A burned tongue hurts a hell of a lot more the second day. Secondly, I spilled soup on me, making me have to wash my sweatshirt in today's laundry. Thirdly, there were high winds and therefore turbulence in Sacramento, and I was nauseated. I appreciated the cold and the wind when I got out of the airport though; it helped settle my stomach.

And then, on the drive home, I hit the worst of the storm just before Yuba City. Thank goodness the road is mostly straight there, because I certainly couldn't see much of anything.

Lars, Skylar and Myles welcomed the newest addition to their family on Sunday, May 6th. Layne Ulrich was born at 3.26PM with a weight of 7lbs. 9oz. and a length of 18-1/2 inches. Parents are doing well and big brother Myles is looking forward to the adventures that lie ahead.

Matt leans against the doorjamb, arms crossed over his chest. "So now you have everything you want. Perfect job. Perfect husband. Perfect children."

His voice startles Skylar. She curls over the baby in her arms protectively. "What are you doing here?"

"I heard about the blessed event. I wanted to offer my congratulations."

"You've offered them. Now get out."

Matt stalks across the room. He twitches the blanket away from Layne's face. "Such a beautiful child," he murmurs.

Skylar sets her mouth in a thin line. "Get out, Matt."

Matt runs the back of one large finger down the baby's cheek. "I didn't get to see the other one when he was born."

She shrinks into the chair and gently replaces the blanket. "Get out."

Matt leans down over her. "He could've been mine."

"Get out." Her voice shakes.

Matt brushes his cheek against hers. "You could still be mine," he murmurs into her ear.

Skylar squeezes her eyes shut. When she opens them, the room is empty again.

Pairing: Matt Damon/Lars Ulrich, Matt Damon/Skylar Ulrich, Matt Damon/Ben Affleck
Rating: FRAO for m/m and m/f interaction.
Disclaimer: They're all real people, but this story is not true.
Summary: Matt fucks Lars, Matt fucks Skylar, Matt fucks with Ben's mind.
Warning: This has Real People Het as well as Real People Slash. And the woman is not a celebrity, but rather the ex-girlfriend of one celebrity and the wife of another. If this squicks you, don't read it.
Author's Note: This was just going to be a Matt/Lars PWP, but then Spooky posted the tallific rules saying no wives, my rebellious side kicked in, and I woke up with this plot in my head.
Thank yous: Thanks to the many, many people who helped find words and answer grammar questions in chat. Thanks most of all to Amatia for doing a lovely job of hand-holding and betaing in chat.

Title: Tender
Author: Ruth Sadelle Alderson

Rating: FRT for incestuous m/m affection.
Disclaimer: I don't think this ever happened, and you shouldn't either.
Summary: After a long day on the set of 200 Cigarettes, Ben takes care of his brother.
Warning: They don't have sex, but it is an incest story. See the Author's Note for more.
Author's Note: When I first wrote this, it really creeped me out. After I read it a few times, I was a little more comfortable with it. I made Armelle read it when I visited her and she said it was sweet. It still makes me kind of uncomfortable, but not quite as much as it did before.

Rating: FRT for m/m affection.
Disclaimer: They are their own people and I seriously doubt this ever happened. If you think it actually did, you're a sicker person than I.
Summary: An attempt to learn lines mutates into a tag-team seduction. Response to Joanne's first line challenge.
Author's Note: I was going to write a light-hearted little snippet in response to Joanne's challenge and I started writing and then Casey wanted to be angsty and it just kept growing. And I don't know if Ben ever called his brother "Baby Casey," but it worked for the story so in this fantasy world, he did.

Warning: Lots of death here.
Author's Note: Everybody else has dedicated Matt/Ben stuff to me, so could I dedicate this to myself? No? Well, maybe not. This is for Joanne, then, because she put the death idea into my head, and for Amatia, for putting the woman's pov idea into my head.

Spoilers: For Dogma.
Disclaimer: They belong to themselves. Not me. Unfortunately.
Summary: Matt and Ben spend some quality time together after a rough day of filming.
Author's Note: Despite the fact that we've all mentioned Matt/Ben as a lovely slash couple, no one's written anything about them. Until now. I've started, so now you can write some of your own. Please don't feel as if you have to be bound by my vision of the boys--the only thing I know about the reality is what I learned from the Golden Globes pre-show (Winona Ryder was going to go to the premiere of The Talented Mr. Ripley but she had to work).
