The Weaved Patterns of Connections

Knowing how to touch another person is not romance

I have officially moved all Teen Wolf fic to AO3
camo condom
Right now only Teen Wolf fic has been moved; I'll move the A-Team and other various fic later. My user name is the same: LadyLade, just in case you'd rather use AO3 than LJ.

(Also, I'm not planning on deleting this journal, even though I'm basically inactive due to RL issues, but on the off-chance that LJ deletes me there is now another place to find my fics.)

The Names We Gain and the Anger We Share
camo condom
Title: The Names We Gain and the Anger We Share
Rating: PG-13
Summary: By the time Allison’s twenty-four, the other hunters call her The Cleanser. She hunts down a rogue, they say, and it’s like the thing never existed. But there is one thing the hunters don’t know, and that thing is bundled up on the back seat of her car on the long drive home from South Dakota, finally sleeping.
Pairing: Allison/Scott
Warnings: None.
Disclaimer: Yes, yes, this is exactly how it happened.
A/N: So I wanted to write about Allison being super badass and whoa did I not expect to take that turn to Seriousville.
It's like a paper chase!Collapse )

I swear I'm not dead.

So. Yeah.

Hello everyone! Sorry for the, like, half-year absence; spring semester was extremely, extremely stressful and stress = reemerging severe social anxiety for me. I've currently got 122 messages in my inbox (holy shit, someone please tell me that they went on a user pic spree) and as I am finally de-stressed enough to have internet interaction again, I promise promise to go through them as quickly as I can. So, in advanced: THANK YOU THANK YOU to people who commented on my shit, especially when you saw I hadn't answered comments in approximately 2.315 billion years.

(Also holy fucking shit lj, what is this devilry with the new posting format re: tags?)

A few quick Teen Wolf thoughts.

I'm re-watching the first season (aka netflix is autoplaying while I'm dozing), and I really think that the reason Scott is (to me) so much more likeable in the second season is because he just didn't translate from script to screen in the first. Scott's definitely not an intellectual like Lydia or even Stiles, but the whole "cute, dumb, and adorable" comedy thing they saddled him with tends to overshadow the fact that he's not stupid either. He's the one who points out how stupid it is to be looking for half a body when a) they don't know what half of the body they're looking for and b) the killer might still be out there. He also makes the connection that Allison's been held back because she moves around so much, and he makes that connection right away (I totally admit that it probably wouldn't have occurred to me for a while, if ever). Which makes it suck even worse when the writing is inconsistent with Scott intuitively understanding common sense situations, like the juice and "my mom buys the groceries" thing (although that was completely hilarious).

Also, I really don't buy the whole fandom cliche of Derek being completely unable to move past his family's death. The way he acts--I really think he had a genuine life in New York, with friends and favorite restaurants and a job or college or something that made him, if not happy, then at least content some days. That's not to say he doesn't blame himself every single moment for his family's deaths, but he's too good at compartmentalizing to still be going through the stages of grief. He's learned to deal with it. He loses a bit of control when Scott accuses him of killing Laura and the bus driver--real mature, Derek, pushing the sixteen year old down the stairs--but even when he's being petty he makes sure that he's not hurting Scott too bad. The whole shady creeper routine and the whole living in life-threatening places (seriously the subway makes me cringe because hello, tetanus) is literally Derek just trying to survive. And the fact that Derek doesn't even seem bothered by the fact that he has to squat in his family's burned shell of a home just about slays me.

Fuck. I need a fandom that doesn't make me ache.

Not Your Average Fairy Tale

Summary: Derek needs to start carding the people he flirts with.
Pairing: Derek/Stiles
Warnings: Ridiculousness.
Disclaimer: I think Teen Wolf has eaten my soul. I don't remember signing that over.
A/N: This fucking fandom, I love you guys more than any fandom before, no joke. Prompted by this post on tumblr and I apologize in advance because it just kinda got away from me.
A/N 2: YOU GUYS. margi_lynn did a really awesome podfic, so go and love her forever!

I have no control over my life anymore.Collapse )

Can we just talk about the lastest episode of Hawaii Five-O real quick?


I Took the One Less Travelled By

Notes: This is a "trying to sort out my feelings pretending to be an essay" essay, but I think, as far as the Teen Wolf fandom goes, all of the needs to be said. Basically, a roughly 2600 word essay on the pros and cons of Sterek becoming canon vs. the pros and cons of Sterek not becoming canon. (Outcome: odds heavily in favor of Sterek becoming canon.)

Sweet Jesus I need to be able to write essays like this for college.Collapse )

Oh hey someone made an animation.

We Move Back to the Beginning

Rating: R
Summary: Chris knows where Allison goes. He used to go there himself.
Pairing: Chris/Peter
Warnings: I can't even.
Disclaimer: I think Teen Wolf is giving me a mental breakdown.
A/N: Oh jesus, what the fuck did I just write. This is all because of captainrenner's tag of "they probably had a specific place," and then my brain was like, "Allison and Scott are not that original," and then this happened. I SWEAR SHE'S STARTING A REVOLUTION IN THIS FANDOM.

Seriously, you probably shouldn't read this if Teen Wolf is already ruining your life.Collapse )

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
camo condom
Just a quick post, because my internet keeps shorting out (eff youuuuuuuuu internets).

I went to see Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter last night. And it was as bad as I thought it would be, but in all the wrong ways.

(There was a plot? I don't know, I spent the entire time laughing because everything was ridiculous and confusing.)

The premise was that SLAVERY AND THE GENOCIDE OF NATIVE AMERICANS WERE CAUSED BY VAMPIRES. I shit you not, they actually said that. And one of the vampires was trying to justify it by, "yeah, dude, but Africans totally sold other Africans to us."

I want to believe that this was a giant meta on racism and that vampires are a metaphor for Europeans (mostly the English in the US territory, let's be honest here) being horrible people in the name of things like Manifest Destiny. But I just can't get past the whole idea of blaming vampires for slavery and genocide. No. It was humans that were the monsters.

(Also, Lincoln? Did not sign the Emancipation Proclamation because he was anti-slavery. That was not his main agenda.)
