oh so many years have gone though i'm older than a year [27 Apr 2004|01:37am]

indie!clark was officially born a year ago this march during a conversation about the strokes and shaggy haired boys, and it's worth mentioning, he was invented by pearl_o, not me. credit where credit's due, she just knows me too well.

but it was a year ago today that i created selling_out and the spectacles came alive. i wanted to do something for those people who share this delusion with me. i'm currently working on that project, one that's kept me writing, but offline, and it's still nowhere near finished. this is a little taste.

when you're in your little room
and you're working on something good
but if it's really good
you're gonna need a bigger room
and when you're in the bigger room
you might not know what to do
you might have to think of
how you got started in your little room
- "little room" by the white stripes

Everything starts in that little room. I know that little room. I have that little room.Collapse )

make a wish, Bexpie! [14 Apr 2004|12:14am]

For bexless, Happy Birthday!!!

Wish

"Close your eyes and blow."

"Where have I heard that before?" Ethan teases, and adds "Ow!" when Astrid smacks the back of his head. "Fine, fine."

Clark laughs, low and honest, and it still makes Ethan pause. He licks his lips and contemplates a wish.

"Wish for something you can *actually* have," Thomas says. Of everyone, Thomas knows him best.

"What's the fun in that?" Ethan asks.

Thomas shakes his head. Ethan closes his eyes and blows out the candles.

When he opens them, Lex's arm is still around Clark.

Next year, Ethan thinks, as he cuts the first slice.

not sure how much longer my internet connection will hold out, so here it is. unbeta'd, so look out for tense issues.

the story of clark's tie collection started back when i was first drooling over the idea of indie!clark. i just wrapped it up in some plot.

i really just wrote this to cheer myself up. i hope it doesn't suck.

the title comes from queen's "somebody to love". i'm listening to far too much queen than is probably healthy.

this was going to be a story about the egghead in the czech class until ethan opened his mouth. at the end of this post, i've included the egghead scenes i had to cut, but still found cute.

you guys will point out a tense issue, right?

Luthor announces new venture for company and son.

Metropolis, KS -- January 25, 2008 -- With the introduction of Ancient Records, Luthorcorp extends its reach into the world of music. While the label is to remain a subsidiary of Luthorcorp, Lionel Luthor's son, Lex, will act as CEO and creative consultant. Leaving Princeton with an MBA, this is the scion's first chance to prove his worth in his father's company. Ancient will be based in Metropolis, and sign bands from all over North America.

The young Luthor has built up a formative roster, but he's not afraid to play favourites. "Ancient has to come out running, and, with The Spectacles, I think we have a chance to win."

The elder Luthor was not available, but commented via his spokesperson, saying, "Lex has the complete support of Luthorcorp behind him, and I wish him much success with this venture."

Plus, it's been so quiet in here... I figure they must be on the road.

after breaking them up and (kinda) getting them back together, it's been tough to get back into the indie groove. some frivolity was in order.

the spectacles come over to get clark stoned. they get lex instead.

for tstar78, for too many reasons.

I made an Ethan wallpaper but since Geocities doesn't like linking, it's best to get to it through this page.

Remember when tstar78 broke Clark and Lex up?

And then pearl_o played good fairy and got them back together, and then turned evil stepmother and broke our hearts again?

And then dammitcarl made it aaaaaaaall better?

Well, my job was to tell the story of what actually happened on that fateful night when Lex was out of town and Clark, well.

Clark was out with Ethan.

Many, many kisses to my beloved tstar78 who pulled this story up by its bootstraps and turned it into something readable. And then she betaed it too. *g*

So, now without further ado.

the first selling_out collab. and it's not over yet. bexless has some ideas about 'the night', I think celli's mulling 'the girl', and i'm hoping fox1013 will take on simon and give him something else to do. this is what it's all about.

Dude, we all have embarrassing numbers of random pictures of the Spectacles cast on our computers. And they're pretty!

I say to jess, "Man, Franny/Thomas really would be so hot!"

And jess says, "Well, they all would."

And I thought about this, and said, "Well, yes."

And then I did this anyway.

Franny/Thomas, manCollapse )
