a problem I really should have anticipated  
The problem with deciding to write a multifandom breakfast anthology for het_bigbang is that I will basically want to eat nothing except breakfast for the entire summer.

(I almost went out for pancakes just now, but I decided that going out for pancakes at 6:30 pm might be okay, but doing it alone is just pushing it a little too far.)

Random breakfast fact: my parents, to this day, believe I invented banana pancakes. (Like everything else, though, I got the idea from Star Trek.)

Goal: 25 pairings/stories.
Written: 1
Actually Good: 0

I really need breakfast icons.

Oh, and in case you thought I had been completely possessed by breakfast, your latest Dancing With the Stars shenanigans:

Hines calls a radio show and says Kym's coming to Pittsburgh for events, but he doesn't specifically say that sex-pact sex isn't one of those events. (The post that linked me to that radio broadcast misquoted it as saying he's seen Kym every day since the finale, and I was like, webcams? Teleportation? Because I'm fucking creepy and know from twitter that they were on separate coasts last week. God, why do I let myself on the internet?)

Kym's back on the hearts-n-flowers twitter wagon and calls Hines her hero and the Argentine Tango her favorite moment of DWTS which, I mean, a) she's been doing DWTS for twelve seasons, and b) she was surely in a fuck ton of pain (she also said she was scared to walk down the stairs at the beginning of the dance, and I link you to that mostly because some awesome person replied: If you had been unable to dance with Hines would they have had Jonathan Roberts fill in for you? Oh, the man-go was the best).

ETA: Man-go.

First rule of sex-pact sex is you don't talk about sex-pact sex.

Plus, I mean, in that article he talks about the craziness of paparazzi in LA, and she's had Australian tabloid drama, so clearly they want to keep things on the downlow.

They'll have to go into the last place someone would expect...i.e. not a hotel. Ok, brainstorm creative sex locations.

I'm totally not used to brainstorming creative sex locations that are actually on Earth.

I mean, we have closets everywhere, but my brain now believes they're unique to Atlantis.

What pairings have you decided to use so far? Because I have suggestions if you need them. ;)
Little Red: b5 - t/g uncertainty - lyssiemylittleredgirl on June 2nd, 2011 02:56 am (UTC)
I'm taking suggestions! Though it seems our pairings are often at cross purposes. ;)

Though it seems our pairings are often at cross purposes.

Heh. Yeah, I wasn't even going to suggest my B5 or BoP pairings. (Although if you were to write them, I'd read them eagerly...)

Are you writing Julian/Jadzia? I seem to remember them on your poll. I check all the usual fic archives for new J/J fic oh, every six months, and I always come away disappointed. They were my first pairing some fifteen years ago, and...I think that might've been the last time anyone wrote fic about them.

Oooh, and Daniel/Janet? Riker/Troi? I'm trying to remember what other fandoms we have in common.

I think I might accidentally break everyone's hearts if I wrote your pairings for B5 or BoP. ;)

Julian/Jadzia! That will have to happen! Oh, I adore those sweethearts. The Bashir/Dax relationships plural is kind of confusing to my fangirl brain!

Daniel/Janet! Can't forget them. Riker/Troi has been requested. RIKERS IN SPAAAACE.

Webcam! Because webcams are EVIL. They are SO vid-sexing each other.

Jonathan filling in would have been AWESOME. I'd have to start shipping Hines/Jonathan, though. (Sorry, Anna!) LOL
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on June 2nd, 2011 03:17 am (UTC)
I feel like webcams should seem evil and smutty to me, but I feel like they usually just involve a lot of staring at another person staring at the internet. I wouldn't make a good character in a porn fic battle, apparently!

HAHAHA. Jonathan's the kind of person you just ship with everyone and everything he walks past, except never seriously, because he and Anna are silly adorable cute. Every now and again Anna posts her version of the stream-of-consciousness blog, except hers is in video form, and I always think of Jonathan being like STOP FILMING, I'M WATCHING TV and she's like "Whatever. Anyway..." So married. Hee. Also, the time he tried to cover for forgetting that he proposed to her on valentine's day which is one of the cutest and most-married video segments ever.

BREAKFAST ALL THE TIME -- this was, no lie, a running joke between myself and my sister. I forget the provenance, but it had something to do with a coworker of hers who was talking about how when he lived at home and his parents were out of town he'd just eat breakfast for every meal.
Little Redmylittleredgirl on June 2nd, 2011 03:18 am (UTC)
My dad makes brunch every day. I come by it honestly!
elliejaneelliejane on June 2nd, 2011 08:42 pm (UTC)
There was mention of pancakes!! Thusly, although, I can't give you any suggestions as to pairings, I hereby come across with an idea!

Here in the UK pancakes are not breakfast food, they are dessert. They are also thinner than US pancakes (I think?) and traditionally eaten with sugar and lemon juice (obvs other varieties exist but the straightforward lemon and sugar is my fave!). Could you centre a fic about this fact, with some kind of entertaining confusion ensuing? I've no idea what off the top of my head, but there ought to be something possible!! One char thinking they've been asked for breakfast and the other not turning up til teatime? Or vice versa? Or something??

Anyway, I think I mostly posted this as an excuse to think about pancakes and drool, as they are one of my favourite things but I don't have them often! Feel free to pass over this pancakes idea and/or chuckle at the perversity of Brits!
Little Redmylittleredgirl on June 2nd, 2011 08:50 pm (UTC)
And they're called pancakes? Not crepes? Crazy! My dad makes hungarian crepes that he calls palachinta (sp?) and I'm not really a fan. Give me regular pancakes any day!
elliejaneelliejane on June 2nd, 2011 09:31 pm (UTC)
Yep, they're called pancakes! Brits tend to think of crepes as being French, or at the very least Continental (ie; from the continent of Europe rather than the islands of Britain, which syncs with your dad's Hungarian ones). But the basic recipe of our pancakes and crepes is very similar. We do have something called Scotch pancakes, though, which are much more like US pancakes.

We also have a Pancake Day! This is what we can call Shrove Tuesday, the Tuesday before Lent in the Christian calendar. Lent is supposed to be a time of giving things up, so traditionally Shrove Tuesday was the last chance to indulge yourself. Apparently, pancakes used to be eaten on this day because they contained ingredients which were once forbidden during Lent. Nowadays, Pancake Day is often just seen as an excuse to eat something yummy!
