Yanno, I think I’m
severely disappointed quite surprised in you lot. You played relatively nice despite LB’s inspiring jealousy because she got to go to RWA absence from the interwebz due to famous author business. I think you’ve all lost your edge. Well done.
Here’s what you chose for LB’s story:
1. the setting~ a convention. *Wonders if this is a yet another slap in the face for living on the other side of the planet and not getting to go to anything cool. :(*
2. some background to the main protags~ it’s their first meeting. Hmmm, will it be lovey dovey or smoking hawt, I wonder??
3. another character~ a half nekkid cowboy. Yeehaw!!
4. a conflict~ pineapple. Even I’m intrigued about where LB might go with this one. 😉
5. a piercing or tattoo~ a My Little Pony tattoo. Awww, every half nekkid cowboy should have one.
6. an object to be mentioned in the story somewhere~ a jock strap. There was never going to be any escape from this, LB! We all know how much you luv ’em. Mwahahahaha!
Dearest darlingest LB, it’s all yours! The first weekend in August is looking mighty fine for a sweet read… or should that be sour considering the fact that a pineapple is involved. 🙂
May the Muse be with yooooooooouuuuuuuuuu.
Ooh, ripe shiny arse!
erm, was there something else?
Your hubby is right. You are getting very smutty.
I don't think that's a bad thing.
I have every confidence in LB after reading 'Men of Smithfield'… Still I can't wait to see what she does with a half naked cowboy, a pineapple and jockstrap! ouch..
maybe I should be wishing her good luck?
Suzi, I was thinking of changing my stance on the good luck thing when I saw the results of the game myself, but, well, half the fun is in the blatant sniggering at the author. 😉
I'm peeved that loss of laptop meant I couldn't vote. I would have liked the Sherwood Forest.
Hmm, gay Sherwood Forest fic.
I thought you hadn't been around to annoy Jen lately, Sean. She was beginning to get a complex and saying very nasty things about you.
I approve of Sherwood Forrest slash. I'm thinking Robin and Guy.
Kris, I can't wait *g*
Me either. *G*
Oh come on, I know you missed me being around to stalk *bats eyelashes and leaves front door ajar*
Robin and Guy? Eww. Although I do love Marian and Robin together. Maybe I could write my first m/m/f.
Don't pay any attention to Kris, Sean. She just likes to stir.
This is just like high school all over again…noooooooooooooooooo!
Ooh, Jonas Armstrong and Richard Armitage Robin Hood slash. Yum, yum.
Sean don't you dare start writing menage. You really will be off the autobuy list then ;).
That version of Robin Hood lost me when they killed Marian. Effing ridiculous.
Do I have to warn you that there's f/f in the steampunk I'm writing?
I know, I've been following your tweets. Not a great fan of f/f – though have read a few f/f short stories.
Hope you don't mind if I skim over those bits!
Not at all. They're not extreme.
I'm fine with f/f.
What I'm not fine with is m/m/f.
Know this, Sean, if you do this it will be most unpleasant… for you. Front door ajar or not.
Come on, a Marian/Robin/Guy scenario could be hot.
Like that scorching scene between Lancelot/Arthur/Guinevere in The Mists of Avalon.
You mentioned she who shall not be named on my blog! That, that… adulterous bitch! I hate her.
Guinevere? Oh well, she had fun though.
Fun? Yeah, if you call destroying a few good men and a kingdom for a fuck on the side fun.
She wasn't singlehandedly responsible for the fall of Avalon!
I think we've gotten into a weird area here. Apparently our little Kris has issues with Guinevere. lol
Kis – LOVE the cowboy! Can he come to my house and play? And Jenre's right – nice shiny arse! yum.
Although I pffft at the jock strap (tights would have been great) I still can't wait to see what LB comes up with. 🙂
I'm fine with f/f.
What I'm not fine with is m/m/f.
As for mrs G. I have to agree as well.
Kris, I knew there was a reason I liked you… I cannot stand when people go 'poor Guinevere'… Instead it should be 'poor Arthur' he was effed over by his wife and best friend, and yet she came out being the victim? They betrayed him! aaarrgh!! Drives me nuts.
Tracy: I'm very cool, calm and collected on the topic of that G woman. VERY.
You gotta admit that the piccie makes a pretty damn good case for the jock strap. 😉
Ingrid: You and me. We're tight.
Suzi: You're my new bff. The sighing thing that most idi-,err, people do over Lancelot and the G-cow. I friggin hate it. They betrayed Author and everything he stood for, but at the same time kept going on about how much they loved him. Plz! They deserved the devestation, guilt and sorrow they had, not to mention the fact that they never ended up together. GOOD!
I of course stole those two man pics for my collection. When my hard drive failed completely my back up DID NOT reinstate pictures. Bastards! Anyway…just means more hunting of man pics. 🙂 Bummer. lol
OMG, that cowboy is seriously HOT. I immediately added him to my stable of hotties 😉
Looking forward to reading the story.
I agree, G was a two-timing biatch and please Sean, no menage 🙂
That last picture should be banned for being too distracting! ANd if that's that picture you sourced for the js I would have loved to see the one you sourced for the tights 🙂 And no, that wasn't a hint…much *grin*
Am so glad that the pineapple will be making an appearance 🙂
Tracy: God, how awful for you. You poor chook.
Lily: Hot cowboys. Nom, nom, nom. I have more. Just for research purposes, of course. 😉
“I agree, G was a two-timing biatch and please Sean, no menage :)”
*carefully adds Lily to her Christmas list*
Orannia, who knew she was a butt girl: Hehehe. I could show you the tights pic, but then I would have to kill you. *g*
Hey, I wanted Sherwood forest! Guys, you REALLY could've done better. At least pineapple and My Little Pony made it.
Sean, is it too late to beg for NO F/F? I'm OK with m/m/f though, as long as boys don't skip each other… OK, scratch it, no F!
Another person who wants Sherwood Forrest slash. There must be some somewhere around the interwebz.
Well, thank god, you said 'scratch the F', Matthew, otherwise I would have been seriously worried about you. 😉
BTW, “Call Me By Your Name” just arrived in my mail today. I'm blaming you if it's crap.
