Away, With My Heart [18 Apr 2012|09:25am]

[ mood | accomplished ]

Title: Away, With My Heart
Author: badboy_fangirl
Rating: NC-17
Fandom: Young Americans
Pairings/Characters: Hamilton/Jake (background Scout/Bella)
Warnings: Underage sexy_times
Word count: ~6400
Summary: Young love meets adult baggage.
Author's Notes: This fic started more than a year ago in my head when I first discovered Young Americans on YouTube. I want to dedicate it to the wonderful lit_chick08 in the event of her birthday because she's one of the treasures my obsession with Ian Somerhalder has brought into my life. :D Many thanks to sarcasticcheese for the beta over the first 4k words. Any remaining run-on sentences are my fault!

He flings himself down on the bed, tugging his tie loose as it hits him: the conflict, it's all gone. The social whatevers that would regulate him to secretly kissing a guy in a men's room unless he suddenly became a whole lot braver just melt away.

Beta request. [28 Jun 2011|11:11pm]

 Hi everyone. Just putting this out there in case anyone's interested, but I'm writing a YA fanfic, kind of J/H but it hasn't got there yet.
It's just under 2000 words so far. I was wondering if anyone wanted to read it through before I load it up, tell me which bits need tweaking.

If not, I hope to get it up in a couple of days!

AdventChallenge! [24 Nov 2010|06:54pm]

 Hello all,

I'm going to be doing adventchallenge in December, and one of the fandom's I'm taking prompts for is Young Americans. Unfortunately, due to the number of fandoms I'm involved in, I can only take around 2-3 per fandom (changeable due to inspiration and pettiness) but I'd love your prompts! (seeing as I have none so far.)

Explanation for how I'l treat prompts and the place to post prompts can be found here.

Happy Christmas! (also, if you're doing adventchallenge , let us all know so we can prompt you too)

Episode Update [25 Apr 2010|07:58pm]

Ok, so i have found a set of links for episodes 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 & 8. .

Sorry, guys. My hard drive was stolen a few months ago and I haven't yet found any copies on the random disks I have scattered around the house. YET. When I do, I will repost with all fresh links at MegaUpload and Fileserve, as I don't use Rapidshare anymore :S

Young Americans Episode Help [25 Apr 2010|12:08pm]

I recently managed to find some decent quality AVI versions of all 8 episodes, but i hit a snag with 1x03 in the fact that the password given for it doesn't work?

Anyone good with RAR files and can help me out?

I have a premium account with rapidshare, so once i can get my hands on it, i'll upload all 8 episodes for everyone.

Where has all the fanfic gone . . . (long time passing) [16 Oct 2009|07:04pm]

Ok, so turns out I actually talked for a long while, so if you want to skip what I wrote and just read my questions at the bottom, that would be fine.

Hey, I'm pretty now to the Young Americans fandom (having finished watching the series yesterday) and was wondering where has all the fanfiction gone? I looked on The Silver Oar Awards (which only went up to 2004 - is there any equivalent? I'd be interested in writing) and the only active links were the ones for the 2004 winners.

For example, one I was interested in was a story called "Thanksgiving" by 'Roxane', yet when I put this in google (inside quote marks) there were only two results - the page from the Silver Oar I had just come from and a forum that had been down for a couple of monthes (but I cyber-poked it and got it up for a couple minutes, then copied and pasted to a word doc.) where somone had recced without a link. Does anyone know of this?

Other than that, I wanted to see if there was anything you could rec that fulfilled some stuff I wanted sorted. See, I started writing a small amout of fanfic, and discovered that I do not like constant refferals to Jake as her/she. (Probably because when watching YA, she(cringe) appears as a boy most of the time) (This will result in some extreme stylistic issues if I ever post anything) I also read some fic on FF.net, and discovered that I don't like overly-feminised Jake, where at the end of the series she is suddenly perfectly comfortable wearing dresses again or just starts randomly having these "inner girl monologues" about guys (including over use of "Oh My God" and "I cannot believe I just did that". (during season or post-YA) Because, a) I don't see Jake as someone who thinks things that far through (see: the decision to cross dress) and b) Even if Jake did have an inner monologue, I think that for the purpouses of the boy-pretense, it would be fairly masculine and/or focused on becoming more masculine (both outside and in the thoughts).

So my conclusion from that, is that I want fic either narrated by Jake (who will not refer to herself in third person) or someone who doesn't know (Will?) or third person limited that belongs to someone who doesn't know Jake's secret. Or who does, but is struggling with the idea andjust decides to revert back to 'he'.

To Sum Up, My questions are:

1)Is there still a request/challenge site for YA fic?
2)Does anyone have links for "Thanksgiving" by Roxane which appears to have disappeared off the face of the internet?
3) Any (good) recs that refrain from reffering to Jake as she/her too much, over feminising Jake or ones that deal realistically with the gender/sexuality questions that would arise from this pretense?

Winter Pays For Summer [13 May 2009|08:21pm]

I guess YA fics are pretty rare nowadays, but if anyone is interested I've posted the first few chapters of a story of mine at fanfiction.net. The story in it's entirety is fairly long, which I wasn't sure about, but then when's the last time we had a YA story, period. So maybe the length is okay? ^_^ The rest will probably go up in a few days.

Nicky's YA episodes - site migration [28 Apr 2009|08:55pm]

Nicky's YA episodes has been migrated to my personal domain, as Geocities is shutting up shop.

The new link is:
nickyfic.obsessive24.net. Please change your bookmarks as the old site will be disappearing in due course.

All internal links should now be working; please advise me if you spot any broken links. I will amend external links where I see them, though I won't make an exercise of hunting down old links to fix.

Kate Moennig/Ian Somerhalder Mash-Up [03 Apr 2009|08:39pm]

I've been attempting to learn how to use the cookie cutter function in Sony Vegas and so as a test of skills I created a little mash up of sorts. Still don't know what I'm doing, but I figured I'd post anyway. :o)

Hey there, guys! I just joined the other day. I was so glad when I saw this community!

It's like everywhere else on the internet has given up on what was such a brilliant series. I'm looking for Jake/Ham fanfiction and I think i've dried up that well already! A lot of links have died DX

So yeah. Hello. I hope there's still people around here. If there are, feel free to point me to your fics.
