Comment and I'll add you back.

♥ Most fandom-related posts are un-locked - fic etc - however, to receive the full Pieces experience, hit up that friends button. Also, yes, I am awesome at Photoshop, thanks for asking. Don't be jealous.

Here's to you, Mr Brass - thanks for five awesome years. <3

Oh gosh, I cut it fine with my Kaleidoscope signup by an hour. Like a boss. Now - down to business!

Dear Doer of Darkness,

Thank you in advance for whatever magnificent wonderment you're about to send my way. I appreciate you taking the time to write for my prompts, and have no doubt I'll be ecstatic with anything you send my way.

My major no-gos are: non-con, unnecessary violence, women being treated badly, like they're incompetent or anything else that shows them to be anything but bad-ass. Plot-what-plot is okay, but as long as there's something of the characterisation in there.

I (embarrassingly) love partners bantering and bickering, bad domestic fluff (especially if there's babies) (or fake marriages) (but only if it makes sense and is in character), ladies f***ing s--t up and taking names and late-night talks in odd places. For the fanvidders, I love vids set to Hawksley Workman songs. I'm easy to please.

More specifically!

1. Keizoku 2: SPEC
Toma and Sebumi watering the garden would be fine by me. If gardening is not your thing, I'd love something that showed their lives away from each other in the year Sebumi was off being a monk, or what their life could be away from everything shown in the series. I've always wanted to read fic where Toma and Sebumi move into a relationship (as much as these two could) and how Chii influences that, in all the good ways and bad. Basically, gardening fic or maybe them baking and yelling at each other would be fine by me. Vidders, I'd be happy with anything, especially a series-as-a-whole vid.

2. Keizoku
I'd like pretty much the same for Shibata and Mayama as I would like for the SPEC Kids. Their life together after the series ends, how Shibata rose in the police force as Mayama became like, an aquarium salesman - anything really. If you're feeling mucho ambitious, I'd love an Aya/Madarame fic - but that may be a can of "are they alive/aren't they?" that you may not want to open. Vid-wise, the same sort of suggestions I listed for SPEC.

Sunny Hill - Midnight Circus
Why isn't there a fandom for this?! Creepy night time circus, ominous ringmaster, beautiful women stuck in some triple ring limbo - ugh. I love Sunny Hill, and their comeback was everything a girl would want from her kpop. A fic exploring the origins of the Midnight Circus, and how the Accordion Player fell in with them would be great, but I'd also love something that dives into the odd mirror-based relationship between Jang-hyun the Ringmaster and Seung-Ah:

Is he in her head? Is he real? Is she? Why am I so into a kpop video? I don't know - all I know is that I want fic, man.

4. Strawberry Night
I'm not sure anyone will sign up to write this, which is a shame as it's one of the best Japanese procedurals I've seen in a long time. The chemistry, the story, Himekawa's team in general - it's just fantastic, and I recommend it if you've not seen it. I'd love fic that is about the team; partner fic; healing fic set to Coldplay's 'Fix You' (okay maybe not) - gen or Himekawa/Kikuta is most welcome. I also welcome anything that delves into Himekawa's past, and Kikuta find out about it, but I understand that this wouldn't be an idea for everyone.

5. Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato
Have you ever thought to yourself, "why am I so invested in a drama about an Heiress and Butler who solve crime?" Pretty much my train of thought for a good hunk of this year. Fic about Kageyama and Reiko's relationship - bickering, making up (bonus points for ~in the bedroom~), their progression from employee/employer - anything is welcome. Bonus points for Reiko being the competent police offer I know she can be, but the writers sadly don't. Vid-wise, a vid set to '10,000 Nights of Thunder' by Alphabeat is most welcome.


That's it! If you have questions about pairings, song choices, why I'm so into a stupid show about an Heiress and Butler, please feel free to ask anon or however you'd like. Thank you again - I hope you have fun writing/vidding :) Happy Kaleidoscope!

Pieces xoxox

PS: Can't guarantee I'll have an answer to the Nazotoki question. It's a mystery.

NOTES: You know when an idea hits you and NEVER LEAVES? And every fandom needs a rockband AU, right? It's hard to place this squarely in either in the bookverse or TVverse, because it's a little of both - Spoiler warnings apply for both! The fic is mostly Gen, but pairings will eventually appear.

The fic title and all chapter titles are courtesy of AC/DC. A wanky reference post with discographies and band lineups is here.

With thanks to my tremendous betas, [personal profile] lizbee and [personal profile] theonlytwin; who along with [profile] suburbannoir helped me nut this idea out. Thank you <3 Let's do it!

Do you guys remember Murder Call? Australian cop procedural with a noir kick that ran on Channel 9 from 1997-2000? No? *proverbial crickets*

Welp, I do. Based on the Tessa Vance novels by Jennifer "Emily Rodda" Rowe, it was the sister program of sorts to Water Rats. Rats was, at the time, an exceptionally popular cop show that was pretty much responsible for shaking up the Aussie TV industry's perceptions of what an Aussie procedural could be, as it was as slick as American shows (well, kind of) - but with a home-grown edge. Murder Call wasn't a direct spin-off; instead it was a strange mish-mash of genres that, at it's best was excellent, and at it's worst? Kind of bad, actually. But Lucy Bell and Peter Mochrie as Tessa and Steve - the city girl and the country boy - have such good chemistry that it's worth staying for the whole, odd, bizarre ride.

I loved both Water Rats and Murder Call, with Murder Call easily being the one I had the softest spot for as I grew up. But, like anything in the Aussie TV industry, the show was either too ambitious or not ambitious enough - take your pick - and was cancelled in 2000 only to disappear without a trace. No DVDs, nothing.

Luckily, it's hugely popular in Europe and has been rerun on 13th Street, Universal's pay-TV crime network. I just managed to get my hands on the whole series and yep, detectives Tessa Vance and Steve Hayden are still Baby's First Partnerz OTP. Because, partnerz.

You guys know that means fanmix and bad fic, right? Right.

As I would recommend you all watch this for the cultural experience and the partnerz aspect, I shall facilitate the procuring of said procedural if need be. *knowing look*

...I really love partnerz, guys.
