Oh my god this thing got out of hand. Will post to vying tomorrow, but right now I just want to get this up so I can collapse into bed.

Seriously love this song, but it's always struck me as very sad, even in its reassurance and defiance. I think that influenced the fic quite a bit, despite the way the middle turned into just a lot of sex.

Title: Don't Dream It's Over
Pairing: Keith/Lance
Rating: R. Sex, language
Warnings: Post-series weirdness. Allura piloting the Black Lion, angst, abovementioned sex and language. I haven't even skimmed over the ending since writing it, so it's probably rife with errors. Too tired to care. Will fix later.

On to the fic!Collapse )

It's pretty sad when the person who organized the lyric wheel can't get her fic completed on time. So I'm 6 days late, for which my most profound apologies, but you might understand why when you see what form the fic took. Despite how long it took, I'm still not quite satisfied with it, as I don't think it's anywhere near my best work... but that may just be the usual self-esteem thing.

Also? I can so see the drastic influence my recent obsession devouring reading of GW fic has had. *wince* (And sorry to all those poor folk who are seeing this multiple times!)

Title: The Antidote
Fandom: Voltron (Vehicles)
Characters/Pairing: Jeff/Shannon
Rating: PG-13 to mild R
Warnings: POV fic, with all the associated stream of consciousness ramblings that usually entails. Also, some mention of substance abuse and self-pleasure, but in very small quantities. Fic for the vying/voltron_yaoi 2010 lyric wheel; lyrics attached at the end.

Disclaimer: WEP owns Voltron in all its incarnations.  Not mine, no money, no kidding.

Well, I joined the voltron_yaoi lyric wheel at the last minute. Literally. Seconds to go. O.o Madness, I tell you. Madness! Like I didn't have enough I was behind on. It's quite possible that my determination to not evolve into another epic has impacted on the style of this, for which I'm not a jot sorry. *grins*

Dedicated to whoever supplied these lyrics, because the 'Allura' condition became my muse.

Title: Unintended
Author: Quill
Fandom: Voltron (LV)
Pairing: complicated
Rating: G

Disclaimer: I own only these little words here - and several dozen rapidly multiplying plot bunnies *sweatdrop*



Unintended

I'll be there as soon as I canCollapse )



As an aside, me getting lyrics for a song called Unintended, by a singer/band called Muse is either most apt, or the biggest cosmic prank. I'm still deciding which. It's quite possible that my original misreading of the title as 'Unattended by Muse' could possible be more accurate. ^^;;

One last reminder that if you want to join us in the lyric wheel, please get your lyrics to me before Saturday, Februrary 6th (that's tomorrow, folks!). I'll be sending out the lyrics at some point tomorrow so that those lucky folks who have signed up can get started on tearing out their hair writing. *evil grin*

You can get in touch with me via PM through ElJay.

thanks!

Hi again,

Just a reminder that there's still time for folks who want to join the lyric wheel to do so. I will send out the lyrics I am sent to each recipient on Saturday, February 6th. The due date is March 1 (but posting early is okay, if you're done early) (I know I won't be). If folks need an extension, please let me know.

Anyone who wants to join is welcome! Please just make sure you send me the lyrics you'd like me to pass on before Saturday.

In more than one sense, I hope. *gets out paddles*

(Posted to both vying and voltron_yaoi; my apologies to everyone who sees this twice!)

So, recently, I've been struck by nostalgia, and while indulging in it, I remembered the Voltron lyric wheels, and how much fun they were. So I decided to set up another one. (After all, the last time we had one was in 2004. I think it's time.)

If you’re not quite sure what I’m talking about, I’ve included the explanation and rules that were posted to vying for the first lyric wheel (slightly edited from the original). They were lifted from the RRYaoi archive, and had originated on a Due South ML previous to that. My comments and such are marked with *.

***
1. Just what is a lyric wheel, anyway?

The lyric wheel starts when a group of people send their names in to the humble wheel-mistress, who collects the names in a random order and makes them into a list. The first person on the list (A) chooses a set of song lyrics and sends them to the wheel-mistress, who sends them to the second person on the list (B). B's own set of lyrics are sent to the third person (C), and so on, until the lyrics of the last person on the list are sent to person A. Hence the name 'wheel'.

When each person has received a set of lyrics, the object is to create a story giving that person's interpretation of the lyrics, and including at least one quote from the song.

2. Is this supposed to be songfic?

Not at all. The object of the story is not to write a story where the characters hear the song on the radio or dance to it or sing it to one another - in fact, that's exactly what the story should not do. The only part of the song that should appear in the story are the quotes being used, and the general theme or idea of the song.

3. What kind of song can I use?

First of all, the song has to have lyrics, though there isn't a limitation to what sort of music - jazz, country, rock, rap, polka, from any era anything that has words that you think are suitable to Voltron (sic) and its characters. We do ask, though, that you be kind to whoever receives your lyrics; while novelty songs are fun to listen to, having to think of a story inspired by ‘The Macarena' might give your fellow writer a serious headache.

The only real restriction is that the song must be in English (or have an available English translation).

4. How long does the story have to be?

We'd prefer that you keep them fairly short, no more than 4 pages (2000 words, or 10K); though if you're particularly inspired, well, write to your heart's content.

*I’m a firm believer in the last. Tell your story just how it comes to you, and don’t worry about the length.

5. What kind of story can I write?

Any story, any genre, any pairing, any style, happy, angsty, romantic, hilarious, terrifying. All we ask is that you keep at least one character from the show; you're welcome to add original characters, alternate universes, crossovers, etc.

Just one rule: no sex-only stories. PWPs are welcome, as long as there is some attempt to tell a story or develop one of the characters.

6. Does the story have to be beta'ed?

Not at all; in fact, we'd prefer that it wasn't. Not everyone has access to good beta readers, and just to keep everyone on an even playing field, we'd like everyone to send in their stories completely unadulterated.

7. How much time do I have to write it?

Somewhere between 10 days and 2 weeks.

*This is actually going to depend on the response, positive or negative. I realize folks are busy and may not have a lot of time to devote to writing. My original thought for this was to set the due date as March 1, just as it was in the first lyric wheel, lo, these many years ago. That gives everyone at least 3 weeks from receiving lyrics. My hope is to have everyone post all their stories at once on the due date. However, if more time is necessary, that's totally negotiable.

8. What if I don't like the song I'm given?

Unfortunately, you're stuck with it. If you don't understand the lyrics, or if the song is just too bizarre to use, then we'll see about exchanging them, but if you simply don't like the song, if it isn't your style, we suggest you just try making the best of it.

***
And that’s it! (Simple, huh?) Pretty much anything goes, and anyone who wants to can join. If you have questions and need further clarification on something, or just want to drop your name in the hat, please reply to me and let me know!
