Stacy in Bloom | 26: Music for the Modern World


Title: Stacy in Bloom
Fandom: Kids Incorporated
Universe: Canon (Season 5 – 1988)
Genre: Friendship/Romance
Rating: T
Summary: With her sister and best friend halfway around the world, who else is there for Stacy to turn to…but Ryan? When the consequences of their actions become clear, the two must decide if pursuing each other is worth breaking up the band.

It's been seven years in the making, but we're finally here: the New Year's Eve concert! ♥

Notes on Chapter 26 )

Believe it or not, this is (only) the official halfway point of the story. (Yes, 120K words is only -half- the story, LOL.) I am forever optimistic that it won't take seven (or more) years to finish the rest of it (especially considering there is an equally-long sequel percolating in the background), but there are plenty of Major Storylines to come, including the integration of several episode plots, Stacy's birthday, the prom, graduation, and summer. Whew! This fic might give new meaning to the word "epic" if we ever make it to the end! :P

I love it when I have sudden, random ideas. I wish it happened more often. Its the rare times like these that writing is 100% magic and 0% sausage-making chore :D

No, your eyes are NOT deceiving you - I have (finally) updated this story! It's only been five years, but who's counting? :P

(Like my new banner? ♥ The upside of taking such a long hiatus, when your original inspiration song is re-uploaded to YouTube in high def, LOL.)

Notes on Chapter 25 )

I am really, really pleased to be working on this story again ♥ It has never been far from my heart or my mind. This is my happy place and it's always a pleasure to spend some quality time here ♥ ♥ ♥

THANK YOU! ♥

Thank you to everyone who was kind enough to put something in my fandom stocking. I never know what to expect, but I am never disappointed. I feel like I win every single year, LOL - even the year that I was seriously ill and had to flake on everybody I wanted to treat, I totally won :D

This year I received a little bit of everything: BSC fics, IY fics (I miss you, IY fandom!!), a Tangled fic, lots of pictures of castles and kitty cats, and even a greeting from a heretofore unknown fellow KI fan! Unfortunately, my output was not as varied - I only finished 4 BSC fics, which will at some point feature at [community profile] babysitters100. This little fic-writing spree inspired more BSC fic, as well as a character guide for Charlie Thomas, so I was definitely busy during my little week and a half of vacation :P

Quite a few of you on my f-list treated me, and I tried to do the same. There was at least one fic that I did not have time to write before reality set in, but it will be coming at some point this year. If you had a fandom stocking, I hope you enjoy your gifts as much as I love mine!!

Kids Inc | Oneshot: Tell It to My Heart

Title: Tell It to My Heart

Universe: Canon
Genre: Angst, Romance
Rating: T
Warnings: Innuendo
Word Count: 7,012
Summary: Season 5. He couldn’t deny it any longer, to himself or to anyone else: he was desperately, achingly, heart-wrenchingly in love with Stacy, and now the only question was…what could he do about it?

Links: DW | FF.net | AO3


MAN does it feel good to write for this fandom again! ♥ This is a birthday giftfic for my oldest & dearest KI fandom friend, KeB, and let me tell you internets about how hard it was to keep this thing under wraps for two weeks!!

This fic came out of nowhere, but had definite inspiration - a lot, in fact.

Points of interest... )

I really enjoyed writing this, and I think KeB really enjoyed receiving it! Whenever life starts to suck more than usual, I retreat to my happy place, and this show/universe will always be my happy place. It never fails to make me smile, and make me want to work on ALL the KI projects, LOL. I am hoping to jump back into Stacy in Bloom, as well as do an overhaul of the OTP manifesto now that all of the episodes it covers are available. I've discovered new cute moments between these two that simply have to be documented, and have had several sweet people send me other things (mentions of the real-life romance between the actors) that need to be included as well.

I always have my eye on finishing WIPs, of course, and hopefully my Summer Mini Challenge will help on several of these fronts. Frankly, I'm just so happy to be writing again, and I hope I can keep it up!! The SMC is certainly coming at the right time of year for me, for a change :P

Quick lunch time update

[+] Slowly but surely, I've been going through Stacy in Bloom and giving it a light edit. I am hopeful that I'll be able to update it soon, because its been too long ♥

[+] I also wanted to gauge potential interest in having another Summer Mini Challenge. I'm still working on my [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo card, but could always use a summer time boost. Anybody else game?

It's pretty bad when your cut scene is longer than the original fic, but I guess that's just the way my muse rolls these days :P Personally, I'm just ecstatic to have two new pieces of fic out in the same month(!), even if this story went in an almost completely opposite direction from what I intended.

It was a lot of fun to jump back into this universe (and this fandom), and I found myself starting to miss Stacy in Bloom, with all of its innocence and nostalgia ♥ I'll get back there eventually ~ I want to see Fleeting through first, since I'm much closer to the ending there than I am with SiB.

My nerdery knows no bounds: 2012 Fergie nail polish collection

I'm something of a nail polish fanatic, so imagine my delight when I learned that one of the things Fergie was going to do when she partnered with Wet n Wild earlier this year was release a nail polish collection. From the moment I saw the first promo pics, I was in love - and now, four months later, I've *finally* tracked down all of the colors.



So now, I must squee ♥

Kids Inc | You’re the One That I Want: IV - Love Somebody


Title: You’re the One That I Want
Fandom: Kids Incorporated
Universe: Canon (Season 1 – 1984)
Genre: Friendship/Romance
Rating: T
Summary: Mickey didn’t realize just how much Gloria had come to mean to him until it was almost too late.

Links: DW | LJ | FF.net | AO3

And, finally, we reach the end of our journey ~ and find an ending that is somewhat unusual for my stories.

Notes for IV - Love Somebody )

I have to admit, diving back into the KI canon has made me long for Stacy in Bloom in the worst way - I've found myself rereading that story and remembering why I love it so much, and just wanting to throw myself into working on it again. There's just something about these characters that's absolutely enchanting to me ♥ But, I must refrain - I've spent this entire year writing KI fic, and it's time to point my attentions elsewhere, to projects that are *long* overdue to be finished.

KI will always be here for me - it is truly my happy place ♥

I hope if you've read this story, you've enjoyed it just as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Woohoo for getting another giftfic off my plate! This one is a (much belated) gift, intended for [personal profile] gloriafan's 2011 [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking. I promised him a Mickey/Gloria story, and boy, did my muse deliver.

I don't know what it is, but for some reason, all of the KI fic ideas I have manage to explode out of my control, and this story is no exception. What I'd originally intended to be a short oneshot (~5K) turned into a four chapter story by the outline (with an estimated word count around 10K), and ended up being nearly 16K words long by the time I finished. I suppose once I got started, it was hard to stop...

Notes for I - I’ve Done Everything for You )

This is definitely a fic more about friendship than romance, but anybody who knows me knows I can't resist sprinkling in a bit of magic somewhere, LOL :P

I also used a prompt from my Summer Mini Challenge table to help me write this story. That prompt was "smooth" - I only intended to write one scene around it (which did happen), but I also found myself using the word as a nominal adjective in all of the chapters. So, win-win, no? :P

This story has been written in its entirety; I decided to space out the chapters a bit, not only because of their individual length, but also because this story is absolutely chock-full of canon references. I'll need four separate author's notes posts to get them all in, LOL - and keep them straight!
