Title: Irony’s Paradox
Author: [personal profile] tamela_j
Artist: [profile] astro_nom
Genre: Lit fiction
Pairings: Bryon/Colin
Word Count: 5,500
Rating: Rish
Warnings: angst, life and death matters
Summary: Bryon Schultz met Colin Markers at an Apocalypse Party... that should have been his first warning that the relationship was going to wreck him. In fact, it was only one of many ironies that Bryon has to contemplate.
Author Notes: Written for [community profile] originalbigbang's Reverse Big Bang, where an artist/mixer created something and I wrote something based on it. It was great and a bit terrifying to be writing original fiction again for immediate release. *meep* [profile] astro_nom, I’m so sorry! It occurred to me after the 12th listening that maybe, perhaps you were looking for a story about an actual apocalypse, not just metaphorical. :(( Thank you so much for the song collection though! I loved them! Seriously, everyone, check it out!

♥ Story for [livejournal.com profile] originalbigbang is coming along pretty well. It's about 8,500 words so far and will definitely hit the 10k mark and beyond. I'm feeling even more confident since they have moved the deadline back a month. ♥ Not really ready to talk about the story itself yet. It still feels like a theme in need of story sometimes--which is rather odd for me. More on this later.

♠ Found a really interesting online site to get published. It's called Everyday Other Things and they are looking for contributors to do collaborations of art and story/poetry. From their website:

If you're interested in creating something for the site, send us an e-mail. In return, we'll send you an image to work with, and a three week deadline. You send us what you come up with, we'll post it on our website.

If you are a photographer/graphic designer or visual artist, send us an image and we will pass it along to one of our contributors.

I thought that sounded like fun and sent away for a picture. I don't know if this is allowed, but here is the picture I received. Pretty cool, huh? I have ~ideas~. ♥

♣ So, not sure how many of you know this, but the folks at NaNoWriMo have started a new thing this summer called "CampNano" which is basically the same premise as regular NaNo but taking place in the summer and also without a lot of the pesky structure and rules. For example. You can do it in July OR August. You can stretch the same project over both months. You could try and write 50k a month or stretch that over the two as well. Basically just WRITE dammit!

I heard about it on June 30th, I think, and so July was out for me. But, I think I'd like to sort of participate in August. I should have most of my OFBB story done. And I'm not going to commit to a huge undertaking like a novel--don't be ridiculous! That's what November is for! No, instead, I think I want to write fun stuff. Short little ditties.

That's where you come in. I want PROMPTS! Ideas! Inspiration! Anything you want to throw at me! I have found (like with the picture and the [community profile] junetide) that I really like to write for other people, for other peoples' wants and specifications (whether or not the recip reads it or not). So by all means--PROMPT AWAY!

Ahhh, but of course, one caveat. There is no guarantee that your prompt will be chosen. Also, one more caveat: there is no guarantee that you will like what I do with your prompt.


Thank you!

This mix was created for [livejournal.com profile] duckgirlie's Ampersand.

This was a great story about that time in life where the pressure of giving up dreams that seem suddenly unrealistic bare down on you. I really loved the different journeys that each member of this band took throughout the year this story chronicles. It all felt very real.

My story is completely different than the one I started with...but that's okay. That story will be waiting for me, but until then, I'm sort of madly in love with this one. There's angst and lots of flashbacks and young boys in the cusp of discovery. *sigh*
