Summary: She and Bob have been friends for a good long while now, and nothing's happened. Maybe they're just not cut out to be two. The two of them and Spencer could make a good, strong triad, and she at least wants the chance to try.

Notes: I started writing this as a cheering up snippet for [livejournal.com profile] icanbreakthesky with the idea that five things she liked were cupcakes, space AUs, Bob, Greta, and Spencer; and then I kept writing bits and pieces with encouragement from her and [livejournal.com profile] siryn99.

I actually have a Google doc titled "plot bunnies" to keep track of these things (sort of; I know a lot of them get lost because I forget to copy them into the doc). If you love any of these and end up writing them, please let me know about it so I can read the story! (Unless you take the disturbing one and write a serial killer story, because I'm not into serial killer fic.)


You know, we always assume Pete is all subby, but there should be a story where he gets turned into a werewolf and turns out to be an alpha. No one is more surprised by this than Pete. Patrick swears a lot when Pete uses his alpha thing to get his own way.

*

Ryan (Luciani, not Ross) ends up pregnant. Mike K, being the only sensible person in that group, explains that he's going to have a baby and he can't live in his car/people's couches. The Stegers are practically family, so Ryan moves in with Max and the Steger parentals. Then Max/Ryan, obviously.

*

Possibly horrifying plot bunny: Zack quietly takes care of anyone who might hurt Brendon or Spencer.

*

You know all that fic where Pete sexes up Patrick to show him he's attractive? There should be fic like that about Max. I would even read fic where Pete (creepy or not) is the one sexing him up.

*

Andy Hurley and Misha Collins both tweeted about the protests in Barcelona. Where's that cracky fic? They meet, and Misha's like, "I already have a threesome," and Andy's like, "That's cool. Want to have sex anyway?"

*

Once upon a time, I was going to make an illustrated Black Cards mini-primer/plot bunny, but I didn't get my act together and then they kept losing members, and now this is all that's left of it.

There are four people in the Black Cards:

Pete Wentz (bass, frontman): formerly of Fall Out Boy, father of Jessica Simpson's nephew, soon to be ex-husband of Ashlee Simpson
Bebe Rexha (vocals): the girl, formerly of a publicly unnamed wedding band
Nate Patterson (guitar/keyboard): the one I know nothing about
Spencer Peterson (drums): Cobra Starship's Nate Novarro's best friend and former drum tech

You do have to pay close attention, though, to know there are four of them. Publicity is all Pete or Pete and Bebe. The sense I get from Twitter is that Nate, Spencer, and Bebe hang out together. I would love to read a story that examines that. Possibly something about how Pete feels very alone/isolated - he has this whole new band full of people who seem to like each other more than him, he's getting divorced, so many of his friends live far across the country - and how he slowly comes to realize he can be part of this group with his band.

Summary: They don't pick up girls very often because anything they could do with a girl they could do with each other, but sometimes they like to have sex with a man. They used to hook up with Brendon sometimes, but now there's Sarah.

Notes: My original plot bunny for this was: Spencer and Haley, stoners in love who sometimes pick up a girl to have a threesome with: y/y/mfy? Of course, then I was wondering how you could get Brendon into that so: girl!Spencer/Haley.

Hook Up )

Summary: Sometimes, when Spencer comes into the living room to find Brendon cuddling Bogart or baby talking to him or scratching behind his ears, something happens in his chest, this too-tight feeling that makes it hard to breathe.

Notes: This was going to be kidfic for [livejournal.com profile] schuyler, but I never quite got that far.

Disclaimer: Fiction.

Summary: Ryan invites Spencer and Brendon over for the first time in months, which is when they find out he has a baby.

Notes: Written mostly over Twitter to amuse myself.

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.

Foxy Shazam is a lot of people, and from what I could see from where I was standing, a lot of weird people. They have some not quite coordinated dance moves that made me see how they fit into a tour with Bad Rabbits. (I still don't understand why The Young Veins were on that tour.) They were entertaining, but I wouldn't see them again unless they were opening for someone I wanted to see.

The second act was Patrick Stump, and when I say "Patrick Stump," what I really mean is "Patrick Malfoy as styled by Flock of Seagulls." More about Patrick. )

And then there was Panic!. We moved down to the floor for them because I wouldn't have been able to see Spencer from the bar area we were in for Foxy and Patrick. We kept ending up in the dude sections of the place because [livejournal.com profile] idahophoenix is tall and was trying not to be in people's way. But it was fine! We were right at the back of the floor, and for most of the set, I could see right between people to watch Spencer. More about Spencer. And those other dudes he plays music with. )

Remember that time I talked about Spencer the pool hustler? A couple of weeks ago, Zack posted another picture of Spencer Smith, Pool Hustler:

Picture! )

This reminded me that despite the idea behind plot bunny of the day posts - to get them out into the world so I can stop thinking about them - I kept plot bunnying this story out over Twitter. Here's the rest of it!

More Plot Bunny )

So obviously this is the AU where Spencer is a pool hustler. Brendon sings in the house band. Dallon bartends. Zack is the bouncer. I have no idea what Ian does.

Zack sometimes has to keep guys from going after Brendon, either because they're more interested than Brendon than Brendon is in them or because their girlfriends are more interested in Brendon than the guys are particularly happy with. Brendon and Spencer flirt a lot. Brendon gets his drinks free, of course, but sometimes instead of drinking his beer, he hops down off the stage at a break and sets it down on the edge of the pool table for Spencer. (Astute observers might notice that this is when Spencer is most likely to miss a shot he actually meant to make.) This story should also have some Breezy (because Breezy is awesome), maybe hiring a babysitter one night and coming in with friends so she can flirt with the hot bartender (who just happens to be her husband) and let him pick her up at the end of the night.

I've had this picture open in a tab all day:

Picture! )

I don't know what it is about it that I love so much. There are Spencer's pushed up sleeves. There's the way Brendon and Spencer are dressed alike, bookending Dallon. There's the way they all look so relaxed.

This is for an anonymous to you but not to me person's prompt for this pairing. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mayqueen517 for her suggestion of Tennessee when I needed a drummer.

This is an AU that does not in any way, shape, or form conform to the reality of the music business.


Fic: Better Than Céline and René )

As you probably know, I tend to churn out plot bunnies over Twitter. One day, I said:
Plot bunny of the day: Bob/Spencer coffee shop AU. Bob owns it. Spencer finagles his way into being a manager. Bob thinks Spencer is (a) too young and (b) sleeping with Ryan, Brendon, and Jon. Spencer can't go home because he'll bang the shit out of his drums, which will get them in trouble with the neighbors.

"I have a soundproofed basement with a drum kit," Bob offers. And then they have sex. And then Bob angsts and Frank tells him he's an idiot.
One of my friends emailed me and said, "WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT ON TWITTER RIGHT NOW - YOU SHOULD WRITE THAT." (Emphatic capitals hers.) So I did, in bits and pieces over the next two weeks. For this month-long fic posting project, I have now also given it an ending.

Title from "Coffee should be black as Hell, strong as death, and sweet as love," which is purportedly a Turkish proverb.

I'm in a weird writing slump right now. It's not that I'm feeling uncreative. In the past few days I have written in my head:a few plot bunnies/snippets, cut for length. )

But every time I sit down to edit book one or work on writing book two or the Leighton/Vicky-T story, I just don't want to. I end up reading fic (I will apparently read anything about Bob) or browsing the internet or poking at the never finished things I'm going to post this month. I think part of it is that while I'm invested in finishing the books and the Leighton/Vicky-T story, I'm not extremely passionate about them as stories. (The way I am with, say, the things above.) (Especially since the Leighton/Vicky-T story took an unexpected turn for the dark.) I don't know if I need an organized break from my large projects or if I need something new in my life to kickstart my brain. Any advice or ideas for writing through the disinterest?

Technically, one of them is gen and one of them is Pete/Patrick/Brendon/Spencer, but the three of them more or less make sense in a post together.

*

This first one is a gen snippet of what I've been wanting someone to write: Travie telling Pete and Patrick they need to just talk to each other.


You're being an idiot )

*

The second one is the plot bunny for some Pete/Patrick/Brendon/Spencer kink.


Did you smoke up before you came over? )

*

The third one is two snippets from an unwritten werewolf!Pete/Patrick, Andy/werewolf!Matt story where Andy sends Patrick to Matt for werewolf advice.


Matt's a werewolf. )

Between a combination of vacation days and holidays, I have today, tomorrow, Monday, and next Thursday and Friday off. Theoretically, I'm using this time to work on my novel for NaNo, but (a) I'm just under 7,000 words, which means I don't think I'll hit 50,000 anyway and (b) I'm going to end up working on things other than my novel and they might as well have structure. So leave me a prompt and I'll write you something by the 28th.

Where is the discussion about this? There should be some bowling AU plot bunnies, discussion about how wide Brendon's legs go, and jokes about balls, at the least. (Bonus points to anyone who can make a good "There goes your social life" joke out of it.)

In other "yes, I do have a separate Twitter account so I can cyberstalk partners/siblings, why do you ask?" news, Haley came to California for a long weekend and after playing video games, she and Spencer headed off on a road trip where she's very excited about elephant seals. I'm finding her more adorable these days, although my previous mild dislike was based entirely on my being VERY JUDGEY about people who were disappointed that Dollhouse got canceled. I am also imagining this weekend to also involve a lot of pot smoking and sex while high. (Spencer, if you are not back in your home precinct today, I hope you absentee ballot voted yes on 19.) I would read a million words of Spencer and Haley, stoners in love.

And in case it was keeping you up at night, the answer to the question, "Has Ruth ever written Brendon/Spencer/Haley/Sarah porn in her head?" is a decided yes.

I wanted fic where Brendon's a werewolf and the mate bond goes both ways. This is the parts of that story that were fun to write. For those of you who read it as I wrote it over Twitter, it has changed a bit - I wrote a beginning and made the most awkward transition somewhat less awkward.


Brendon as a wolf is pretty much like Brendon as a human. )
