Title: The Life and Times of Dating an Italian Fashionista
Rating/Warnings: PG for Romano's mouth
Pairing(s): Spain/Romano
Prompt: Romano taking Spain clothes shopping with Italian fashionista action.

Not that he really cared how the idiot dressed, but it was embarrassing when Spain showed up to meetings looking like... well, like this.Collapse )

So, the world hates me at the moment. These are probably the most ridiculous things in the world to let bother me, but I'm a Beth so I guess it's just my lot in life. The only thing I can do is post an entry about it on livejournal and move on with life. Besides, I don't post half as often as I should.

1. So. I was making a grilled ham and cheese sandwich and I pulled out the mayo. That's when I saw that this was not just any mayo. This was mayo MADE WITH OLIVE OIL. What? I've never made homemade mayonnaise without olive oil. I mean, that's one of the key ingredients. Olive oil, eggs and vinegar, plus whatever spices look interesting. So if the mayonnaise I ate today was MADE WITH OLIVE OIL, what was all the other store-bought mayo I've eaten in my life made with?

2. For the past week or so I've had recurring nightmares about the British Empire. Like, really scary ones, too! They've been waking me up every day at around four am with a serious case of the hiccups. I don't mean "Ooh, my chest hurts! Make it stop!" hiccups. I mean "WHY HAVE I HAD THE HICCUPS FOR SIXTEEN HOURS. PLEASE KILL ME NOW." hiccups. I've tried every cure known to man, from holding my breath to getting scared to a spoonful of sugar under the tongue.

3.So, my friend Anthony and I are fans of the Hetalia kink meme. We're dorks and have gotten in the habit of acting out a couple stories of the sillier, non-explicit over the phone with each other each night. It's awesome. I'm also on the kink meme to write stories, though. I've got the superhero!Spain fic, which I'm terrible about keeping anonymous about and then I've got another fic which I'm horribly embarrassed of because I hate admitting that I like this pairing. Well. Yeah. Anthony picked THAT story to read with me one night and didn't even let on that he knew perfectly well that it was my story until the end, when he laughed at me. I hate boys and I hate having a distinctive writing style.

Alright! So I've finally finished sorting through the two hundred one-sentence fanfics that Anthony dared me to do way-back-when, and I have picked out the eighty-five that I can show off without hiding my face in shame afterward. Go me!

::...hides face in shame anyways because I'm randomly shy like that::Collapse )

More computer issues... but what else is new? I'm starting a two week and a half week vacation tomorrow, so I won't be on the computer much anyways. Maybe by the time I come back, my new battery will be here and I'll be able to fix my laptop! That would be absolutely fabulous.

Before leaving for vacation tomorrow, I'm going to try to finish/edit/post some of the Spain/Romano ficlets that I have sitting around, plus some of those one-sentence fics. pilipa and I are having a writing jam tonight, so I'll totally get stuff done. I work so much better when she's around, but don't tell her I said that... even though she's probably reading this.

So apparently I'm capable of getting shy about my writing. I didn't even know it was possible for my massive ego to let me go all not-vain, especially about writing, especiallyespecially about writing fanfiction.

Last night, at around four in the morning, Elise and I discovered a cute fanfiction meme. We stayed up until six-something finishing it and giggling and reading out loud to each other. I was brave and veered away from Spain and Romano for pretty much the first time (well, after the first song; the first song that came up for me was Buono Tomato. How was I supposed to resist that?) and tried my hand at writing things I was nervous about writing, like USxUK, FrancexCanada, and Belarus. It's nine hours later I'm still pleasantly surprised at how well a few of them to turned out so I made Anthony do a quick beta job and now I'm posting while I'm still brave.


So without further ado (or copping out)...Collapse )

Hrm. Well. Operation Livejournal is not going all that smoothly. It's not the poor Livejournal's fault, of course. It's all Robbie's fault. Robbie, my darling laptop, seems to have a problem recognizing his own battery right now, and so isn't charging correctly and is running extra super slow and has a personal vendetta against Livejournal. No worries, though, as a new (expensive, argh) battery is on its way as we speak! I hope. Unless, aliens declared war on all postal workers and my new battery got exploded in a laser beam skirmish.


On the bright side, I've been playing with fanfiction. Specifically a giant Death Note AU (Hot Priest Mihael on a street corner!) based on a prompt from our generators that Elise got, which challenenged her to make all the good characters evil and the evil characters good. Which is really tricky, because everyone is really so gray area, especially when you start focusing on the minor characters. But it's shaping up really fun, and centers on the escapades of a well-meaning detective named Beyond, his hacker son/brother/roommate/caretaker/partner Matt, and their attempts at thwarting the nefarious chop shop run by Jailbait Nate and the brainwashing cult run by Hot Priest Mihael. Nate and Mihael's new nicknames courteous of Matt, of course.

And then there's my other project...

Well. Spain. Romano. You know I adore it like whoa. Still, I was having trouble actually getting them in my head in a solid enough way to write them. So I turned to my loyal minion Anthony, to whom I read Poland/Lithuania fanfics over the phone and who has been pestering me endlessly to write some new fanfic of my own. I told him to give me a couple words to use as prompts and instead of doing ten-word fics, I'd do one-sentence fics. When I said a couple words, I had meant maybe five or ten. He came back with two hundred prompts. So I've been working on those, and it's been awesome. Like the first twenty or thirty were kind of fail while I was trying to get into the swing of things, but after that it's all clicked into place and has been really fun. I'll probably end up turning at least a couple of them into fanfics and/or posting the one-sentence results here, after I clean them up a bit. I'm almost up to number ninety!

*waves at the LJ world* And we're back, live from Beth's bedroom after a however long hiatus, during which I got bored completely with my old journal and decided to make a completely new one. It's a much better fit, anyways. I'll play around with customizing things around here and hunting down the LJs of everyone that I stayed in contact with ... well, everyone that I stayed in contact with who still has an LJ. Maybe with a bit of prodding I can get Skye, Sujin and Blu back on here? Hrm.

But for now I feel very silly since I know I'm just talking to myself to fill up space and get rid of that always awkward first post. I hate first posts.

It's late. New LJ, I'll clean you up in the morning. You have a couple of icons at least. That's good enough for now.
