essbeejay: in your face, nerds! (in your face!)
Eons ago I promised an entry breaking down my massive TEF/PpG/RrB playlists. Today I am following through! Kind of! With (most of) the Blues, at least! )

Even though I don't quite listen to music with the ear for “Would this fit a character/pairing?!” the way I used to, the possibility exists that these playlists may get updated from time to time if I hear something that happens to fit.

Of course, if you lovely folks have any Blues songs you'd like to recommend, please do! I love listening to the playlists you all come up with :)

ETA: P, one of my favorite peoples of all time, wrote me birthday fic! Specifically, Reds!birthday fic! Featuring blushing and angries and shirts! Go read and lavish all the love upon her!

Title: More Than Human
Chapter 9: Monday Broke My Heart, or Everybody Knows You Cried Last Night
Pairing: RrB/PpG
Rating: R/M, because they're teenagers and a good handful of them use terrible, filthy language.
Disclaimer: Pay your respect to Craig, not me.
Summary: There is no way I can make this sound original, ever. My attempt to write a believable RrB/PpG in high school fic. Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal. – Camus

essbeejay: i'm happy and i'm driving! (i'm happy and i'm driving!)
So like most hot-blooded humans, I like listening to music! And a lot of times, music can serve as great creative inspiration, blah blah blah, you guys know this, there's no reason for me to observe the platitudes of paying lip service to how music gets the creative juices going. WE ALL KNOW.

I've been meaning to do this for a while - either to try and pull myself out of the creative ruts I keep falling into, or possibly to distract myself from writing what I really ought to be focusing on right now (ahem, TEF) - and finally sat down to do it today.

Here's how I played it: I put my MP3 player on shuffle, and whatever song comes up becomes the title of a potential fic, and I have to come up with a character, plot, and summary for it as fast as possible. Just those items; I don't actually write the fic itself (though maybe...). Anyway, it was a fun little exercise and I thought I'd share the results!

Song/Title: So Happy I Could Die (Lady Gaga)
Character: Princess
Subject matter: Self-reflective vignette highlighting Princess' cynicism about her life and how she has everything she ever wanted and what loser would want to be a Powerpuff Girl, anyway?
Bonus alternate take! Fluffy self-reflective vignette highlighting Princess' genuine happiness at being with Bubbles.
Summary: Divitiae virum faciunt. / Princess never thought it'd be like this.

Song/Title: Six Weeks (Of Monsters and Men)
Character/Pairing: Him
Subject matter:Short from Him's POV hinting that something big will be happening in six weeks that only He is aware of. What it is is never explicitly stated or made clear to the audience.
Summary: What's coming, only the Devil knows for sure.

Song/Title: Dear Maria, Count Me In (All Time Low)
Character/Pairing: Boomer
Subject matter: One-sided Boomer pining for Bubbles. Setting is one of the Girls' many public appearances involving an audience of people that he's a part of so he can be an anonymous fan rather than a Rowdyruff Boy.
Bonus alternate take! One-sided Boomer pining for Bubbles writing a letter to the Townsville Tribune's advice column asking what to do about his hopeless crush. Epistolary format.
Summary: This is the only time he has the courage to call her by name.

Song/Title: Come Into My Head (Kimbra)
Character/Pairing: Sedusa
Subject matter: Sedusa and her cynical reflecting on men's superficial, surface-level interest in her.
Summary: “You want to know what I really think?”

Song/Title:Eet (Regina Spektor)
Character/Pairing: Sedusa
Subject matter: Angsty. Sedusa's bitter jealousy of the Girls' youth and innocence and how her own can never be recovered. How nobody's can ever be recovered, really.
Summary: “It was so easy.”

Song/Title: Primadonna Girl (Marina and the Diamonds)
Character/Pairing: Bubbles, Bubbles/Princess
Subject matter: Bubbles observing Princess's character, showing how she understands what makes Princess tick and why she acts the way she does... and how she can overlook it and love her anyway.
Bonus alternate take! Princess's POV post-breakup. And how, while it fuels her resentment towards the rest of the world, it also makes her a stronger, more formidable villain.
Summary: All she ever wanted was the world.

Song/Title: Champion (Nicki Minaj)
Character/Pairing: Buttercup
Subject matter: Buttercup on how villains and criminals shy from her and her sisters as the years go by... and how she likes that power more than any superpower she's ever had, and how that, in turn, reveals things about herself that she doesn't like and isn't sure she wants to examine.
Summary: “They know who we are by now.”

Song/Title: She's My Shaker (Jon Fratelli)
Character/Pairing: Brick
Subject matter: Brick in his adolescence slowly coming to terms with his growing attraction to a certain red-headed, bow-clad superheroine.
Summary: “You don't move like you used to.”

I'd write a proper ending to this entry but that would require effort. EH.

On my way to being pretty damn drunk. The rest of the alcohol just hasn't kicked in yet.

So if anybody is reading TEF they will be happy to know that I succeeded in cutting the last of that 5% from ch9 and sent it back to beta Sunday! WHOOOO.

So here is a drunken!sbj totally fucking rejected post to celebrate.

I wish I could scan this in for you guys. I was going through a phase where I was writing everything in cursive because I hadn't done it for so long and wanted to make sure I remembered how to. )

I seriously have no recollection of writing this, or where I planned to go with it. Maybe it was just a drabble?

Oooh, that shot of Applejack's kicking in now. (No, not the pony.)

Wait wait. I have more things I can post for tfr. No, that's the original super!Drama!cakes!ending for TEF. You guys definitely don't want me to post that.

Oh here we go. Have some tfr Blues!

I think I need another shot. This one isn't working fast enough. )

Jesus that was boring. I'm on my way to drunk and I STILL found that boring.

Hm here's another one! Guess who's perspective this is from. )

Okay have another.

Him is in this one! )

Man, I thought I'd be more entertaining posting drunk. Sorry everybody.

Hey btw Quilly won the PpG Hub Drabble contest for the year! Congratulate her, she is awesome.

Maybe the next time I post drunk I'll be more entertaining.
