When Bryce showed up on the white Ducati at the beginning of their sophomore year, the only thing Chuck could think was that of course Bryce knew how to ride a motorcycle. )

1. Dim sum! And they even had chrysanthemum tea! Served, exactly as it should be, with a little dish of rock sugar. *swoon* (It is strangely difficult to find in the US, so it is very, very exciting to know that there is a place nearby that has it!) Deliciousness. ) Definitely going back there.

2. [ profile] antumbral's Hockey RPF (Blackhawks)/Generation Kill fusion-crossover ficlet (also here), in which Duncan Keith is a spotter, Patrick Sharp is his sniper, Patrick Kane is their driver/communications guy, and Jonathan Toews is (of course) their fearless leader. It is just so ridiculously pleasing. ♥

3. Yes, I'm still basically in the process of falling in love with hockey. I watched half of 24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic (only half because the Housemate twice (twice!) deleted the first two episodes before I had the chance to watch them) and it was awesome. I have had to start actively preventing myself from spending all my time reading articles and blogs (and re-reading fic), because there are a lot of things that actually need to get done this month (we're moving, among other things; there is a lot in my life to be stressed out about, at the moment), but it's fun to know it's all out there for me to absorb when I have the chance.

4. Porn Battle XI is coming! :D Prompting will start tomorrow and run through Friday, January 21st, and the dates of the actual battle are Sunday, January 23rd to Thursday, February 3rd. [ profile] oxoniensis has more information up here and here. All fandoms welcome! Come post some prompts! (See the FAQ for info on how to format them correctly and all that jazz.) I have started my brainstorming list for prompts, but got a little distracted by a fic idea, so I still have much to do. Possibly I ought to make sure to prompt something that the fic idea would fill, because my desire to write the scene that's been on repeat in my head for the past few days has gotten pretty strong. Two hockey players, one figure skater, 2010 Winter Olympics, happy shiny super-porny ménage à trois featuring oral sex and instructional dirty talk -- should be fun, if I can make it work!

5. Shearwater is still one of the best live shows I have ever seen or ever will see. Never fancy, just them and their many, many instruments (all of them played between 3 to 6 instruments over the course of the show), but breathtaking, engrossing, charming, intense, and so, so gorgeous. They performed The Island Arc (Palo Santo, Rook, and The Golden Archipelago) all the way through (with 10 minute breaks between albums), seven people on stage (if I remember correctly the previous two times I saw them they usually had five people) all playing with total commitment. I am a little bit in love with Jonathan Meiburg, I think, and his voice. I am definitely in love with his band. Just incredible.

Um. *cough* That was a lot of hockey, wasn't it. I might be a little obsessed. But it's not the only thing I'm thinking about! I have been also contemplating a lot of other fandomy things! )

Warnings: Uh. Rampant cliches? First time writing either character? Fluffy fun?
Summary: Chuck is sent to fix Ray Toro's computer.
Notes: Written for Porn Battle VII, prompt "Ray Toro/Chuck, tech support," original thread here. This version has been copyedited a small amount, as I was writing pretty much down to the wire and there were more typos that I'd like to admit in the original. Feedback and constructive criticism is, as always, cherished.

Stray plot bunnies and ficwritingish thoughts:

1. I should remember to take a copy of The Obnoxious Jerks with me on vacation. I'm pretty sure it could make for a seriously adorable bandom AU.

2. I am also pretty sure it is now my responsibility to write a love letter to my time at Stanford in the form of a Chuck/Bryce pre-series story. (Did I mention that I enjoyed the first disc of Chuck a whole lot? Because I really, really did.)

3. Having an epic college AU work-in-progress is kind of insane-ifying. Also having another WIPish thing in tandem with it, no matter how casual.

4. Recently I've been wanting to go back to the SPN fics I was working on, but who knows if that's ever actually going to happen.

5. My yuletide status is totally OH SHIT BEARS and will be until I get enough schoolwork done that I can actually work on it, gah.

Speaking of, back to work! *flail*
