Okay, so who else is caving and downloading Pretty.Odd?

I, in an ideal world where I possessed some fucking patience, would wait until I had the deluxe edition in my paws until listening! But I'm weak, so whatever!

Work is absolutely killing me- the end of the financial year is not exactly a time of joyous celebration when you have a massive underspend in your department. Its also not joyous when you're waiting on a funding decision for your Masters degree and EVERYONE IS ON HOLIDAY WTF!

NEVERMIND. I have 6000 words of Bob/Brendon fluff. It has the provisional title of 'An Unapologetic Love Story' and is over 4000 words longer than anything I've ever written in oh ever. I blame matertera, who keeps allowing me to have discussions like 'what sort of flower would Brendon give Bob?'

To my U.S pals, is it you know, feasible to major in music and minor in art? I am confused by this thing you call 'College' but is clearly University in different clothes.

Thank you, [profile] klgrem, for the card!


So here's the deal: I am applying for a £10,000 grant for postgrad research. I am, at this precise moment in time, supposed to be writing my grant proposal.  Yet here I am!
Of course, thinking about failing at this makes me think about how I fail at other stuff like losing weight and having relationships. Oh and finishing things. Just how much I fail in general, actually. I'm not usually that emo about this stuff, but home has been eh, tense, I can't find a permanent job and I cannot write this fucking proposal. Today is just one of those days when running away with the foreign legion looks attractive. You know those days when you're all 'I have an honours degree! I'm smart and not ugly and pretty funny! Why am I still unemployed and single? Why is every girl I date crazy?' questions for the ages, man. It's just so depressing when you realise that in order to be employed you may actually have to take your hard-earned degree off of your CV.

But eh. I have Panic tickets for the Glasgow gig (any other fangirls going?) and I have my health (HAHA I am Sybil Ramkin without dragons, natch).

So [personal profile] disarm_dwas talking about how she's started her 'prissy university AU' and I was like OMG YES PLEASE and then she suggested that we should all write AUs based on our uni experience.

Mine would consist of Spencer moving to Aberdeen after a crappy high school life and meeting five of the best friends ever, omg, and they bond really well until one of them LEAVES in a huff and then they're only four after someone else has to go home. But then it somehow becomes even more awesome,because they just have fun and love their courses and get drunk and go on holiday to Spain. Then they have lots of different flatmates and all of them are pretty awesome without fail.

But of course I've never slept with any of my flatmates ever, though I did have a giant crush on one of them for a long time. I'd make Spencer an anthropologist (because that's what I am. Social Sciences represent!) Ryan would be a biochemist (because my best friend is a biochem major) then I'd probably put Brendon in sociology. Jon Walker would be the older chemical engineering student and I'd use other bands for the other flatmates.
I kind of think basing an AU on my uni experience would be awesome, because Aberdeen University is pretty awesome.

Okay, there are 71 entries tagged bandslash on del.ici.ous now. Time for the actual rec post I think- mostly Gerard/Frank, Brendon/Spencer or Pete/Patrick.

unequivocal by [profile] stereomer        

Been recced all over the place already but worth repeating. It follows the band right through the early days from Frank's viewpoint. (Gerard/Frank)

With Friends Like These by [personal profile] iamtheenemy        

Sometimes I get a craving for a sweet 'My best friend totally digs you!' fic. You know, where Ryan Ross tries to get Brendon and Spencer together and makes Spencer jealous by flirting with Brendon? This is that fic. (Brendon/Spencer)

The Making of Axe: The Horror of Man by [profile] provetheworst      

Game Developer AU! Will's an intern, Spencer doesn't do hugs, and Pete's no Frank Iero. (Will/Travis, Will/Adam, Brendon/Spencer)

Leaving you Alone With Me
by [profile] 3jane   and [personal profile] mimesere   

I think this fic is amazing- Pete and Patrick get married in Canada. I just love this fic. Plus, Joe and Andy are awesome in it. (Pete/Patrick)

 I've got your number one bullet right here, baby by [personal profile] supergrover24  and [personal profile] femmequixotic
This fic will kill you with the hot. Seriously. I could bang on about all the plotty stuff but seriously guys, hot porn. (Pete/Patrick)

Just close enough to touch by [personal profile] disarm_d

There are many things I love about this story, one, that it contains my panic! otp and it's well written. Two, that it has a lovely slow build up to a relationship and three, that I love the Spencer in it so much I could just keymash all over the place. Go read right now. (Brendon/Spencer)

Watercooler Romance by [profile] marigolde

I have a weakness for AUs where something extraordinary happens in an ordinary way. In this case it's Gerard and Frank, getting along with life and finding love.  (Gerard/Frank)

Close Enough For True by [personal profile] skoosiepants

It's a SNOW WHITE AU. Spencer is Snow White! A bitchy, trendily shod Snow White whom Prince Brendon has to save with his horse Mr Frisky. Why are you not reading it yet? (p.s, I am waiting for skoosie's comingoutau!, for it is sure to be awesome) (Brendon/Spencer)

Home is a name
by [personal profile] arsenicjade

This story is the prequel to Wednesday Night boys, the famous panic! hooker AU. But I have to say I like it better- because I love Frank here, and all of them.  (Gerard/Frank, Mikey/Ray)

pretty much a sex god by [profile] adellyna

Another prequel I liked better than the story! It's the prequel to the wedding planner AU,  the story of how Jon and Spencer got together. It is SO CUTE YOU GUYS OMG THE LADYBUG SHIRT.

Over the past month *koff* or so, I seem to have accumulated a lot of bandom media. So I've been uploading some things for [profile] always_august and I thought I'd share them with you guys as well. They're all on megaupload because ss HATES ME.


Panic! At The Disco


The Panic! Live DVD- Oh there is just so much pretty in this I cannot even begin.

Panic! Covers- The covers of Tonight, Tonight , Round Here, Karma Police etc

Strung Out on Panic! At The Disco- The general baroque feel of Panic! songs lend themselves really well to the String Quartet's covers.

Panic! Live-  The live CD. I love the live versions of Camisado and Nails For Breakfast, Tacks for Snacks

The Panic! Itunes Special- Oh HEE. I love this and want to draw crimson glittery hearts around it.

My Chemical Romace

Heartbreak in Stereo by Pencey Prep- Frank Iero's band before My Chem. Frank was the lead singer. The album is sort of awesome.

I'm Not Okay (I Promise) video- In Life On The Murder Scene (which I have most definitely not watched five times) they said Bob Bryar joined the band like a day before they shot the video. 

Helena Video- The start of the My chem obsession  with co-ordinating their clothes. I do not complain.

String Quartet Tribute to My Chemical Romance- I love String Quartet covers, okay?

The Teenagers Video-  Apart from reminding me of a Marilyn Manson video, it makes me miss Mikey Way's glasses.


If anyone has the 'Ghost of You' video, I would very much like it.

And now, under the cut, icons!
