Squiggly Adam

(no subject)

Hello, void.

I don't expect there's anybody still reading here, and that's probably for the best. I was going through my old documents, though, and found this start-of-a-story. I barely remember writing it, but when I re-read it I found myself thinking it didn't suck, and wondering why I'd never posted it. When I got to the end, I remembered: it was supposed to be long. It was going to be many chapters of these boys dealing with the fallout of one teeny tiny event, separately and together, like unraveling a mystery. But then I stopped.

The Kradam thing was weird, wasn't it? Strange looking back at it from years down the road. I don't even write anymore, but for a while I couldn't hold in all the stories I wanted to tell about these imaginary versions of real people I'd never met. Seems so crazy, and yet I miss it sometimes. And as much as I miss feeling creative and inspired the way I did back then, I think I miss the community even more.

So here's just the beginning of a story, dedicated to the ghost of Kradam, and all the awesome people who went crazy along with me for a little while.

Squiggly Adam

Chocolate and Wine [Rockstar!Adam AU]

Title: Chocolate and Wine [Rockstar!Adam AU]
Author: itsmadeofgold
Beta: norosegarden ♥ x ∞
Pairing: Kradam
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~1,600
Warnings: Extreme schmoop.
Disclaimer: I subscribe to the multiverse theory, which means I can very sincerely believe that somewhere, sometime, this did or will happen. But in this universe, it's just something super schmaltzy I made up in my head.
Summary: Three-ish or so years after Adam walked into his bar and changed everything, Kris finds symmetry in a momentous event.
A/N: I borrowed a couple of words from Darren Hayes toward the end - not many, but those I used for the title and cut text of the first chapter in this story seemed to fit too well. They came from the song "Good Dress": You walked into the room, and the future came with you.

[Charity Fic] Between Two Lungs

Title: Between Two Lungs
Author: itsmadeofgold
Beta: The tremendous and stupendous norosegarden, who - much to my delight - continues to tolerate me for reasons unknown.
Word Count: ~4000
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Mention of infidelity (very much in passing), graphic sex (as implied by the rating), language (which shouldn't bother you if the graphic sex doesn't).
Disclaimer: This is a work of fiction and nobody is paying me. I come in peace.
Summary: It shouldn't be a big deal for good friends Kris and Adam to share a guest room at Tommy's beach house, but with the lights out there's more between them than just the dark.
A/N: This fic is shamefully overdue, and there's no apology strong enough to excuse it. Please believe I've been trying; my own mental block and stupid personal dramas led to the starting and scrapping of probably half a dozen stories in the last few months. That I've managed to finish one feels like triumph, even as I'm hating myself for how long it's taken. pulapunat, this one is for you, and I really hope you enjoy it. I'm so sorry for the absurd wait, and for telling you I was almost done only to have my story collapse again. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your donation, and your patience, and your understanding. ♥
A/N II: Title and cut text from the song "Between Two Lungs" by Florence + The Machine.
A/N III: Seriously, norosegarden is a saint for putting up with me. All praise to you, bb. ♥

OMG you guys! diane_mckay podfic'd my HS!AU (Start on the Inside) and I am so ridiculously excited it's probably not normal. I have listened to it twice and it still blows my mind. Go here and listen and tell her how flipping awesome she is! Eeee!

I know I have charity fics left. They will get done! I'm sorry it's taking so long; I've had personal dramas (OH GOD THE PERSONAL DRAMAS) and a general whiny writing-is-hard-leave-me-alone feeling which has been holding things up. I will come through though, I promise.

It's amazing what you can accomplish when you're obsessively focused on something.

So, yay! Pretty much everything I've ever written is now here. And the series are all nicely grouped together (gogo!AU is 72K+? OMG), and it all makes my little Virgo heart pitter-pat with organizational glee.

So I started an AO3 account. I'm planning to move all my fic over there to make it easier to find and sort through. That will be a big project (because I really needed one more of those), but to start off with I got Dance With Me and Holding All The Pieces posted, since they were the biggest pain in the ass to get to (being locked posts on kradam_ai, a result of my not knowing what I was doing when I started posting fic).

I gotta say, I really do love seeing them all put together instead of chopped up into pieces.

Anyway, they're here, and the rest of my shit will slowly start appearing there, too. Hopefully not too slowly... I'm kind of really excited about having this stuff organized.
