I have been very lax with admin recently and metafandom's been so busy, I'm so sorry, my life . . . basically, Malcolm Tucker's 'crisp packets' speech from The Thick of It has become very relevant to me recently -_-; Next chapter of Grey might be a little late because I have had *no* time to write all week (this is problematic not least because I go a bit strange if I can't write every day; I am talking to myself quite badly) and I'd rather get this thing *right* at this point instead of scribbling out whatever and fucking up the end of a fic you guys have stuck with for a long, long time now. Wish me luck for next week? ^^;

In the meantime, admin! There's been shitlots of Hallowe'en stuff over at fuckyeahtheghost and fuckyeahthephalanx (this is a good holiday for this fic ;) ), including lots of adorable ghosts <3 Meanwhile there's artwork by redkukushka, thank you honey! (Yep, a pretty good time of year for the the Ghost, clearly ;) )

whitesheepcbd has been helping ghostlanx to infiltrate rl NY in a way I find ridiculously pleasing, thank you honey ^^ whitesheepcbd has also taken part in a fic exchange with draxie for Hallowe'en, writing a fic each on the prompt of 'the Ghost and Phalanx rescuing kids from a haunted house' (read Whitesheepcbd's here, Draxie's here! Thank you both, they're awesome, I'm half tempted to take a teensy break from the fic itself to contribute a 'canon' version of the prompt to act as the urban legend that inspired the 'fanfic'? (Just to really knot your brains, it would actually act as fanfic of *your* fics then, making an absolute meta-pretzel of what counts as real anymore zomg o_0 )

Finally the-facemaker is back with COSPLAY YOU GUYS! I am actually aware of further cosplay which awaits photographs, but basically, my year was made by Hallowe'en this year, you guys were all *amazing*, oh my god =D

So, while you all bask in the glow of your collective fabulous (thank you all so much ^^ ), I really ought to reply to some comments, huh? ^^; Or try to squeeze in an hour's writing. Ack. Let's see what self-control Rainjoy is capable of tonight, congrats on surviving the scariest night of the year everyone, and happy November! <3

[Edit: Apparently I'm doing neither of these things and I'm farting around with making AtOG playlists to upload. Anyone got any small pieces of fanart they don't mind me using for Ghost, Phalanx, and fic-generally playlists because it won't let me upload them without those? ^^; Would be appreciated! <3]

Because I'm going away this weekend and I'm not a *complete* sadist, an update *before* I leave:
Grey part 30 of probably 33?, AtOGverse, superhero!AU.

Disclaimer: If Joss Whedon started writing it I might start watching it again? Neither of us own it though -_-

Rating: Let's go with R because like hell I know how to rate half this shit anyway, you know your reading capacities better than I do . . .

Warnings: Part one had a loooong list, the main one always has been that anything you might read about in a newspaper might turn up here. This chapter? Some of the same issues we've been dealing with all along; all the bad things we've faced can always come back. They can always be overcome, though, too <3 Everything Sebastian will ever come out with is clearly always complete dickshittery and I'm sure you're all aware of that, because you're clever readers ;)

Summary: You have every right to your every no, but, if you are lucky, it's your yes that will stay with you every day for the rest of your life.

Kind of sleepy and dopey admin too, ugh.

So, first up, Grey updated, notifications will be borked for those of you who rely on those, sorry. And I am so behind on admin, metafandom is so much more together than me ;_;

1) Draxie drabbled! Engaged superboyfriends, eeee <3 Thank you, honey =)

2) Art <3 Really lovely black and white photograph style art. Yay =)

3) Hallowe'en is basically the best time for this fic, yeah ;)

4) More fic from whitesheepcbd! Angsty fic, but I cannot complain about that for lo look at what I write ;) Thank you honey <3

5) This one is fucking lovely, he wears the mask so well <3 Thank you babyblainers!

And now I need to blow my nose and slump in my chair and hate my life a lot, because Sunday in the library with a cold and just ugh. May spend the next few hours sulking over simblrs. Hope everyone else is well, stay warm and keep the germs at bay, guys <3

Grey part 29, AtOGverse, superhero!AU. Sorry for weird updating schedules recently, on top of my insane to do list I got a cold that just won't go =(

Disclaimer: God, it is *so* not mine.

Rating: This part R.

Warnings: Part one had a long list of shit that can always come up; this chapter does some harking back to old bad things, but at least shit *happens* this chapter . . .

Summary: You don't choose your ghosts; but it is always your choice how you face them . . .

Grey part 28, AtOGverse, superhero!AU. There's admin I'll deal with if my brain will allow it, though I suspect neither that nor comments owed will happen tonight, sorry -_-

Disclaimer: I owe many comment replies. I own nothing.
Rating: R with wariness of subject matter; go careful.

Warnings: Part one carried a comprehensive list and all of them will always be relevant, I'm really sorry but this universe just isn't a *nice* one and bad shit will come up, please be wary of that. This part we have stuff relating back to earlier traumatic incidents in the weird-angled way this fic does, a very implied but I think we all know what's going on there minor character death, and it's also what I think of as the last depressing chapter of the fic; that means, woo, no more 'depressing' chapters, but also, sorry, this one is totally depressing yeah ^^; If you're really worn out for that crap right now, wait until the next one's posted? <3

Summary: He doesn't know any ghost stories that end 'happily ever after'.

Before Rainjoy actually falls asleep at her desk:

If you can read Russian, you can read AtOG! I don't like sharing real names without permission and I only know one of the LJ names of the translators (thank you zelenoye ^^), please let me know if you want credit honey because wow you've been busy, omg *_*

In other ficcish news, Draxie drabbled again =) Superboyfriends running a super-school, zomg.

Oh and also, it actually is a Phalanx mug ^^

Thank you everyone who goes above and beyond in the name of keeping the metafandom of a fanfic alive, it consistently amuses and just *delights* me, thank you ^^ And now I must bed because I have tutor training in the morning. They're actually giving me young minds to mould. Fuuuuuuuuuuck. On that catastrophic note, goodnight ;)

Grey part 27, AtOGverse, superhero!AU.

Disclaimer: I am handmaid to words, right hand to some strange muse; nothing is mine.
Rating: Hard R?

Warnings: All of those listed in part one live in a permanent state of could-always-return; obviously this chapter we have *last* chapter's fallout to deal with, I accept that it's a heavy place to be right now, I'm the one who has to write it -_- We start out the chapter in Kurt's head, given what we learned about what it's like in there last time, tread careful.

Summary: It wears you down, down, down.

While I wait for bloody iTunes to update because I want to listen to John Edwards, oh god my life is so hard etc.

So first of all thank you fuckyeahthephalanx for beating me to this because I did get sent it ages ago and it got buried under my inbox and I was hopeless, and it's *lovely*, Ghost fanart of a very beautiful nature <3 Thank you both very much to the artist for how *pretty* it is, and also to the person who sent me it (I can't remember who you are on LJ! I'm so sorry, I am fucking hopeless, let me know if you want crediting honey <3) because I am indeed the queen of being the last person to know about 'my' fanart ;)

Fuckyeahthephalanx has also been busy writing some very dark fanfic (do read the warnings) of a kind gloriously 'canonical' in terms of the fic's internal fandom; it is *exactly* the sort of thing they'd speculate, isn't it? It's perfect, honey, thank you, and thank you for my doggie <3 (A sequel with Phalanx in it in that universe would be fascinating, wouldn't it? she said innocently ;) )

(Just taking another moment to appreciate the doggie <3 )

On a lighter note, lol ;)

I will now reply to comments because iTunes is STILL UPDATING OH MY GOD. LET ME PLAY MY MUSIC GODDAMN YOU. Fuck it I'm going onto youtube. Be with at least some of you soon, hopefully, thank you for your patience <3

Legit so tired, had a dream that made me really angry last night which woke me early, and angry, wouldn't let me get back to sleep because, you know, *angry*, and then put me in a weird (angry) mood all day. Bascially, your subconscious is there for trolling you, and no other necessary purpose.

(On the other hand I watched this today and now I have tiffin, so really, life is not bad, not at all <3)

Anyway, admin! Because fuckyeathephalanx remains busy =) Magicalplaylist made a little dress-a-Blaine with a Phalanx option (aww <3 I used to love playing with those things when I was a kid. Then they invented the Sims and, well). Thank you honey ^^

Were there ever actually cosplay it would pretty much make my universe, just so you know <3 (I'm actually having an arse of a time sourcing two shades of very pale grey fabric just to make a plush, so if you can do *that*, mad props, seriously . . .).

And also, orphaned art! If anyone wants to claim it drop a line here or to fuckyeahthephalanx =) But it's brilliant, just so you know, masked artist; should I feel guilty if people break out of CGI graffiti and into the real thing? ;)

Thank you very much, everyone in phandom, because you amuse and delight me constantly ^^ And now bed because oh hell I have to deal with the institutional definition of art when I wake up tomorrow morning, don't even ask, it's a pain. Anyway. Hope you have fun days lined up, and be well <3

Grey part 26, AtOGverse, superhero!AU. I owe so many comment replies, I'm so sorry, but this weekend I doubt I'll have the chance to post though I *may* be back in the library with nothing to do but teaching prep or the internet, so you kind of know I'll be with you then, right? ^^; Sorry, guys. Life is going to be crazy for a *while*.

Disclaimer: Can you actually imagine what Glee would look like if I owned it? It would have loads of Gladys Knight covers and arguments about the ontology of art. It would not recognisably be Glee ^^;

Rating: I did set it as an R but actually I'm upping it for subject matter, rating porn higher than this is just fucked up; NC-17.

Warnings: Part one has a long list, and the sheer length of the list is the depressing part. Okay, this chapter though, seriously: this chapter and the next are . . . not nice (though lol there's at least one to come that I think'll be even *more* stressful ^^;). In utter seriousness, you know I always warn that every bad thing that's happened previously can always come up again? In this chapter *they do*. If you don't want to deal with fucking awful shit tonight I wouldn't. The world contains worse than just violence, the world tells us we *deserve* it (fuck that; we don't. No-one does.). I owe so many comment replies that I may also be bought out of some guilt if you don't read it yet anyway? ^^;

Summary: No sense, no feeling, no meaning anymore.
