Summary: Gabe and Victoria are drunk when they get married, and they aren't in love, but they make it work anyway.

Notes: In case it's not obvious from context, I wrote this two or three years ago, before Gabe and Bianca broke up and before Victoria started tweeting pictures of her professionally done nails. Consider it to take place within that time period. Thanks to D and S for providing nail polish advice, [ profile] lakeeffectgirl for reading through this and talking it out with me, and anyone else I may have talked to about this but forgotten now. Any errors and rough patches are due solely to me, not to them.

I know I'm pretty much out of bandom, but Gabe/Victoria is my forever OTP. I was going to make a mini-picspam, and then I had twenty-two pictures, so this is a giant picspam.

Summary: Everyone - well, everyone who knows about it - thinks that Mikey sells himself to supplement his income because being a cater-waiter doesn't actually pay that much.

Summary: Victoria puts her hand on the back of Gabi's neck, and Gabi tilts her head down to bare more of it to her touch without seeming to know what she's doing.

Summary: Nate gets back to the bus, and Gabe is hiding out in his bunk. The rest of the band takes a good look at Nate and figures out why.

Notes: My original thought for this was: Actually, what I really want is some Nate-centric Cobra gsf.

Bands/Characters: Cobra Starship, Leighton Meester, The Academy Is...
Pairing: Leighton/Victoria
Word Count: 59,000
Rating: Adult/Explicit

Warnings: Although the sex itself takes place off-screen, Victoria does engage in a romantic and sexual relationship with Saporta as part of her cover. Gabe and Alex's non-celebrity ex-girlfriends are characters in this story.

Summary: NYPD Vice Detectives Leighton Meester and Victoria Asher go undercover in Gabe Saporta's underground club with the aim of gathering enough evidence to put Saporta away for good. Leighton and Victoria are used to undercover work, but this is a longer operation than usual, and they aren't used to being apart. A "Good Girls Go Bad" video AU.

Notes: When Cobra first posted the video for "Good Girls Go Bad," I promptly tried to give away the plot bunny for the story the video had so clearly set up. Then there was [ profile] bandgirlsbang, and I used that as a reason to start writing the story. It kept growing and growing well beyond the due date, and I'm so pleased to be able to post this as part of the same challenge this year. Thank you to the mods for running it both years and giving me a reason to both start and finish this story. Thanks are also due to a great number of other people. [ profile] lakeeffectgirl, [ profile] siryn99, [ profile] icanbreakthesky, [ profile] mayqueen517, and [ profile] unrequitedangst let me add them to the Google doc. Even if they weren't reading regularly, knowing they were there helped me keep writing. [ profile] lakeeffectgirl and [ profile] schuyler were extra awesome and beta read for me. (Any remaining mistakes are, of course, my own.) [ profile] siryn99 and [ profile] schuyler helped me figure out a title. So many people that I have failed to keep track of them all answered questions and let me talk out things I was unsure of. You all have my thanks. I couldn't have done it without you. Huge thanks go to [ profile] dwg for the art and [ profile] delphinapterus and [ profile] roadmarks for the mixes. They are all amazing, and there is more gushing about them in the respective posts. Title loosely taken from Stars' "The Night Starts Here."

[ profile] roadmarks Notes: I had a blast reading and mixing for this fic and I can't wait to read it again! When I was mixing, I started out trying to pick songs that fit with the plot, but then I gave in to the urge to make a mix that was mostly about pining -- I hope you like it nonetheless! :)

Author's Notes: I think this is actually a stealth pining mix. I didn't realize it was the one with the mixer note about pining until I was looking for a title for the story and looked up the lyrics to all the songs in both mixes. This is such an upbeat mix that if you aren't paying attention to the lyrics you won't know how much pining there is in it. You could conceivably have a lively party to this mix. I love how well that fits with Leighton and Victoria being undercover and upbeat while they're missing each other.

A few specific notes: I love "Fair Game," and I'm not sure I'd ever heard anything by The Like before. My brother loves Bassnectar, so I can't wait to tell him someone put a Bassnectar remix on a mix for something I wrote. I love that both mixers put Stars songs on their mixes. I only knew one of their songs before, but now I'll definitely be looking for more. "First Train Home" keeps catching my ear. I love that this ends with "Dog Days Are Over," which is neither a pining nor coming home song, but a keep fighting song (at least in my head).

I knew one of the mixes had notes that the mixer had cut from following the plot to just making a pining mix. It's actually the other mix that has that note, but if you listen to this one, you can see why I thought it was this one on first listen. This mix has a lovely melancholy feel. If you are in a long distance relationship or unrequited love situation, you may not want to listen to this. I'm not in either of those situations, and it still almost made me cry on first listen.

A few specific notes: My dad is a big Alison Krauss fan, and I'm looking forward to telling him that I have one of her songs on a mix for something I wrote. I love that both mixers put Stars songs on their mixes. I did know this song, and I will have to go looking for more of their music. I was absolutely delighted to see Alisha's Attic on here. I haven't thought of them in years, but I remember loving one of their songs way back in the day. "Moments in Love" catches my ear every time I listen to this mix. "Home" is a lovely ending to this mix.

[ profile] dwg's note: I made a series of posters with corresponding wallpaper packs - they range from 1600x1280 to 1024x768, widescreen versions included. There are 6x ~5MB packs

Author's note: When I opened my email and clicked on the links to the art, I literally gasped at how perfect this art is. I love how glossy it is, and how well it matches the look of the video. What they really remind me of are the kind of TV show ads you might find in magazines, and I love that [ profile] dwg made that for my story. [ profile] dwg, thank you so much for these! Everyone else, be sure to take a look behind the cuts and see how incredible this art is.

Happy Halloween! This is the third year I've done this, and it's always fun.

Red Door

Knock or ring the bell by leaving me a comment, and I'll reply with a treat of some sort. It might be a fic snippet, a picture, a song, or something else I come up with in the moment.

Summary: Gabe and Victoria's first night home from tour.
Note: While this can probably stand alone, it is the third story in a trilogy. The first two are Going Steady and Knocked Up.

Homecoming )

I really want a story where Pete meets an unexpected dude somewhere (like Starbucks or the park or Whole Foods) who is really good with Bronx, to the point that Bronx invites him to sit/play/come home with them. Eventually, Pete and unexpected dude fall in love and have sex on days when Bronx is with Ashlee.

The question about this plot bunny is: who should the unexpected dude be? A Jonas brother? ("You're dating a Jonas," Gabe says, with a look that says way more than his words.) Chris Pine? ("Captain Kirk," Gabe says. "Is it out of this world?") Peter Dinklage? (Gabe says, "I can't believe you found another Peter even shorter than you.") Suggestions welcome!
