All The Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues  

If you've ever, er, wanted me to write smutty (or sort-of, borderline, trying-but-not-really, because-I-suck-at-smut, mostly-just-a-different-name-for-angsty-in-my-vocabulary) Damon/Elena fic, then prompt me! Since junkyatbest and I totally planned out my prompt (hee, very Secret Service of us), I need to fill out a prompt too, but I am so ridiculously terrible at it and I know I'll just botch up all the prompts that already exist, but y'all are familiar with my horrific attempts so I won't mind making you roll your eyes at whatever finally comes up. Actually, if you generally want fic written, prompt here at tvdmixing :D Except you'll have to fill a prompt as well, since it's an exchange system. BUT THE MORE, THE MERRIER, RIGHT?

I've kind of been deferring watching the LOST series finale because I literally do not know what I'll do with my life once its over. D: I'm mostly just sitting around making Game of Thrones icons because I'm supposed to be working on various college projects, so. I also downloaded the first season of Buffy, and I'm honestly all 'BUT WHAT IF IT ISN'T AS EPIC AS I THINK IT WILL BE'? /things that keep me awake at night.

Community's gone till a vague period, and it went out with a bang (and Alison Brie's boobs), SO I HOPE YOU ROT IN HELL AND HORRIBLE RATINGS NBC. Also, it appears I'm one of the only people on this planet, but I loved 'Symphony of Illumination' on How I Met Your Mother, and I absolutely do not understand how people didn't. It was a ridiculously amazing episode for Robin, and it reminded me how the show is so much more than what you would initially think it is. And I don't complain about not having met the mother, because that isn't what the show's about. It's about all the things that get you where you were meant to be, and how even a wrong turn or a yellow umbrella is responsible for you being where you finally ended up.

ALSO, FIC RECS, Y'ALL. People have been writing me fantastic fic for their Holiday Fic Requests and I should really make a masterlist for it; I shall keep updating it as more stuff gets written *g* Going chronologically:


It Took So Long (Just To Feel All Right)  | lit_chick08 |  Damon/Caroline | pg-13 | Caroline wishes she had the strength to send him away but Damon just...does things to her.

Why it should be read : because it's angsty and fabulous? No, really, the characterization is brilliant. Exactly the sort of dysfunctionality you'd expect of these kids a century or so later. And Caroline's voice is so heartbreaking D:


A Girl Like You | badboy_fangirl | Damon/Caroline | pg-13 | I've been looking for a girl like you. Not you, but a girl like you.

Why it should be read : This fic runs a fantastic parallel to the fic above, from Damon's point of view. And inside Damon's head is my favorite place to be, even though it's all crazy in here. Caroline/Damon can definitely end up like this, in this co-dependent, we-don't-actually-like-each-other sort-of-relationship.


the tilt of this strange nationjane_wanderlust | Barney/Lily | pg-13 | wanting her is like a constant throbbing inside his skull.

Why it should be read: she wins all the awards for writing me Barney/Lily. And Barney's voice is so, so incredible, I cannot even. It's an incredible look at Barney analyzing why he want to see her naked. Or wants her, period.


a house down the road from real lovejane_wanderlust | Derek/Casey | pg-13 | he's not jealous. He's just...mildly amused.

Why it should be read : Because I'm still trying very hard not to steal that beautiful title? Derek/Casey was my original OTP. I was obsessed with them for more than two years and I've written an insane amount for them; but this? This is my Derek, exactly how I like him; buying prime riverside property in Egypt and snarking his way through totally not being in love with Casey .


The Blood Runs Red Down The Needle And Threadcassiehayes | Damon/Caroline | pg-13 | she hates herself for saving his life when it's the last thing he deserves

Why it should be read : Because it deals with all that canon very nicely glossed over. Caroline is so glorious in this; she's not forgiving, she's not okay, and she's dealing, because she's Caroline fucking Forbes. It takes a canon scene and adds so much more depth through beautiful writing.


a small event in someone else's historyjane_wanderlust | Damon/Caroline | pg | of all the gin joints.

Why it should be read : because the gin joint is a Starbucks. BECAUSE DAMON IS AN ENVIRONMENTALIST (LOLOL IAN). Because Caroline thinks she owns Manhattan. Because Damon doesn’t exactly categorize days in his calendar with Caroline-less calibrations. JUST READ, OKAY?


You Are An Endless Summercassiehayes | Stefan/Caroline | pg | It's one of those drowsy mornings, and Caroline would much rather talk about what it's like to live for 150 years than get out of bed.

Why it should be read : because the title itself screams Stefan/Caroline? And the entire fic carries that utter comfort that I associate with these two. Because they're the only people who'd lie in bed and discuss existential questions. Because they're adorable and hunt bunnies and this is their future /trufax.

 
dye my eyes and call me prettyjane_wanderlust | Caroline gen | pg-13 | boys like you love me forever.

Why it should be read : because Caroline sees her life through Princess shades, because that's who she is. And fairy-tales can be so utterly horrific. This is such an amazing look at Caroline and her insecurities and her jealousies and her Caroline-ness and all the boys she's loved. Besides everyone knows I'm partial to the fragmented style.

I still have to re-read the last two (I'm late with commenting, sorry guys!) And apart from this, ever_neutral has been writing FANTASTIC character-driven fic, and the pairings include Rebekah/Damon, Alaric/Elena, Stefan/Klaus amongst others and you should really check it out. As has abvj, although I don't know any of the fandom's she's written for as yet, but I do know her and she was one of the most fantastic writers in the TVD fandom while she was still interested in the fandom, so READ y'all. Also, earnmysong's Holiday fics are absolutely fabulous, and SO MANY different fandoms, you need to go over there right now.

[26] Mad Men
[44] The Vampire Diaries

OMG, IT'S BEEN SO LONG D: But I'm glad you liked them!

I've been lurking at the D/E fic exchange for two days now, and I don't dare to prompt, because I already have too much to write! So I'm lurking and waiting if I can spot a prompt that has my name on it, because then I won't be able to resist anyway ;).
youcallitwinter: broadway's got you in its hold right nowyoucallitwinter on December 10th, 2011 07:51 pm (UTC)
Oh man, I know the feeling; I rarely write prompts because I'm so terrified of disappointing, haha. And you should definitely write! Or if you don't, then it'll be good for the other stuff you have to write; it's win/win either way for us xD

There are so many gorgeous close crops in your GoT icons! I especially enjoy the one focusing on Danaerys's mouth!
youcallitwinter: broadway's got you in its hold right nowyoucallitwinter on December 10th, 2011 08:01 pm (UTC)
I'm just starting on any sort of experimentation in icons, so your appreciation of the cropping is much...appreciated, heh. And I kind of had to remind myself midway through the GoT set that it wasn't a Dani Is The Queen of Everything post :s Thanks!
Alexia Lisa Drake: Game Of Thrones - Lonelyalexia_drake on December 10th, 2011 07:14 pm (UTC)
Great icons as usual :D

Nice list of fic recs, I'll come back in a couple of days to read some.
youcallitwinter: broadway's got you in its hold right nowyoucallitwinter on December 10th, 2011 07:52 pm (UTC)
Thank you!!

Oh yeah, I love the fact that my flist is filled with awesome writers, haha

youcallitwinter: broadway's got you in its hold right nowyoucallitwinter on December 11th, 2011 10:13 am (UTC)
Haha, I know what you mean, Sawyer is such a fantastic character I cannot even deal with him. I'm actually making everyone around me watch LOST as well, so I usually sit and watch with them to reinforce the epicness. It's like I've started a rewatch without even finishing the series, heh.

Oh, that's the same for me; usually the movies/shows never match up to the book, no matter how good they are. I hope you're able to make it through your self-imposed restriction on the books :D

You're most welcome, I LOVE the holiday season for all the fic it's getting me xD

OH HAI THERE GORGEOUS ICONS. GAME OF THROOOOONES, SO PRETTY, EVERYTHING IN THAT SHOW IS SO PRETTY, AND CAROLINE WITH THE HBIC FACE, ALL THE AWARDS.

/capsattack

Anywho, don't even worry about late with commenting, I myself have been shitttttt with comments/replying to comments lately, oh gosh. Plus I'm like, three days behind now with holiday fic I think, so EEP. But I am loling very much at 'Because they're the only people who'd lie in bed and discuss existential questions' so, HEE, just wanted to let you know.

Awesome list of other fics that I can't wait to take a look at, and awesome icons, as per usual, you rock ;)
youcallitwinter: broadway's got you in its hold right nowyoucallitwinter on December 11th, 2011 10:19 am (UTC)
I AM SO PREDICTABLE IT'S NOT EVEN FUNNY. BUT THAT SHOW IS FILLED WITH PRETTY PEOPLE SO NOT MY FAULT. And Caroline's HBIC face, HOW IS THAT GIRL SO PERFECT

/righttherewithyou

Replying to comments is the worst, you've already written AMAZING fic, you shouldn't have to thank us for thanking you, hee. Besides don't worry about being late, we're getting so much fabulous fic from you, it's worth the wait!

SUCH A SWEETHEART YOU ARE <33
Sarpaceisthetrick on December 10th, 2011 09:39 pm (UTC)
Hey bb, just a reminder that the prompting is exchange based.
Anyone that submits a prompt is required to fill one prompt.
You can fill as many times as you want, but you are only allowed to submit a prompt one time.
Just wanna mane that clear.
Xoxo
Viva the secret service
youcallitwinter: broadway's got you in its hold right nowyoucallitwinter on December 11th, 2011 10:21 am (UTC)
Oh my god, I totally forgot to mention that, so yep, definitely going to add that in! And exchange is the best way to go, holiday cheer for everyone :D

GO US. xx

Okay, so let me explain the pretty in this post:
1. You make icons with GoT too?! Ah, now I can save more of your lovely icons (:
2. In fact, I saved the 8th to last icon of Dany and then right below it, the Sansa one. Amazing colorings!
3. Your TVD icons are beautiful as always...
4. ...that's why I saved the one where Elena is once again staring at Damon's lips.
5. AND, SRSLY, THE ELENA ICON (the close-cropped one, where is she is looking down at the vervain necklace) IS JUST MADE OF BEAUTIFUL. :D

That is all. <3
youcallitwinter: broadway's got you in its hold right nowyoucallitwinter on December 11th, 2011 10:24 am (UTC)
1. Haha, I JUST finished the show, so of course I had to make icons /McPredictable
2. Wow, thanks for specifying, considering I didn't even bother to put numbers or anything, aww <3
3. I'm so glad you like them!
4. HAHA, WE SEE U THERE ELENA. She does this a lot, it is epic :D
5. IT'S NINA'S FACE, TBH. Her expression is so delighted and awestruck; just a really brilliant actress!

You are so amazing, thank youuuu!
punkylanapunkylana on December 10th, 2011 11:21 pm (UTC)
great icons, the sansa ones are my favorites
youcallitwinter: broadway's got you in its hold right nowyoucallitwinter on December 11th, 2011 10:24 am (UTC)

Hardcore Buffy fan here. Ask me anything.
Um, first season is verrrrry campy.
In my honest opinion there are 3-4 epic eps in it.
But seriously watch season 2!
Season 2 is epic.
Amazing.
Makes you FEEL so much.
youcallitwinter: broadway's got you in its hold right nowyoucallitwinter on December 11th, 2011 10:26 am (UTC)
Re: Hardcore Buffy fan here. Ask me anything.
I DID NOT KNOW THIS ABOUT YOU.

Haha, I just saw one and a half episodes yesterday (in fact I saw two VERY DIFFERENT versions of the first episode, what even?) and I thought it was hilariously adorable; SMG is so very young, I still remember her in Cruel Intentions being all sexy and incestuous!

Definitely going to watch now :D

I am so happy you finished GoT so I can finally have ICONS!! :D Snagged one of Dany and one of Arya. Thanks for sharing, bb.

More fic to read \0/ YAY!
youcallitwinter: broadway's got you in its hold right nowyoucallitwinter on December 11th, 2011 10:27 am (UTC)
PREDICTABLE IS MY MIDDLE NAME, YES. Arya and Dany are such bamfs, I cannot even. HOW ARE ALL THE WOMEN SO PERFECT?

And all the fic I'm getting is REALLY putting me in the holiday mood, hee :D

LMFAO DAMON/ELENA FANDOM IS SO PERVERTED. It makes me like us better. Because I usually hate us.

THANK YOU for the fic recs I am always starved for good fic in this fandom. Also SHUT UP you flatter. ITA about abvj though, WHERE HAS SHE GONE? (I don't actually know her personally, I AM JUST WELL-ACQUAINTED WITH HER FIC LOL.)

All the icons are gorgeous and I want to kill you. I am particularly glad for GoT and Mad Men, I DID NOT KNOW YOU ARE A FAN OF THE LATTER? \o/
youcallitwinter: broadway's got you in its hold right nowyoucallitwinter on December 11th, 2011 10:35 am (UTC)
LOLOLOL, IKR? I tried to search for a prompt to fill and basically spent the entire time thinking "omgomgomg, how can I possibly write this?" I'll go with exhibitionism BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW DAMON IS A DRAMA QUEEN. I mostly hate us too, but Ian/Nina sexytimes make me like us sometimes.

THERE IS SO MUCH FIC IN THIS FANDOM, HOW IS GOOD FIC SO HARD TO FIND? I feel like doing some investigative journalism thing to find out, make statistics and stuff, because it is incredible. I think it may be because everyone's so pretty, and it's like "OH GOD JUST HAVE SEX ALREADY". Shuuuuup, you're been writing unbelievably IC fic, that is so delightful to read <333 And unfortunately abvj doesn't like TVD much anymore, which, FANDOM, YOUR LOSS.

Mad Men is the actual best of course, I DID NOT KNOW YOU LIKED IT EITHER D:

This is fandom's most overused gif:

a) I've been hearing so much about the show recently, BUT I FEEL YOUR PAIN. OMG, you're writing holiday fics, I just checked, it hasn't shown up on my list for some reason D: MUST ADD YOU TO THIS POST. And it shall be worth the wait :D

b) TOTALLY. And I've been hearing so much about it, being in a vampire-related fandom, that I felt like I HAD to see it :D

c) HOW AWESOME!! I must read that as well, those two are so freaking adorable!
