chapter six of my day  
I apologize for the spam--it's like I'm dumping truckloads on you, tons of spam excavated from the bowels of the earth.

But anyway. I'm trying to write...

*crickets chirp*

I got nothing. Talk to me more, please? Really. Speak to me your non-smutty-but-kinky thoughts. I promise to chat back.

I mean...I'm not the only one online on a Friday night, right? On the whole Internet? Because that would just be sad.

Not the only one online, but I got nothin' of interest.

Yup. Nothin'.

But you have a woman with blue hair! That interests me. *g* Is that really Fred's actress, or an astonishing simulacrum?

You are. There's nobody awake but YOU.

In a way, it's like you rule the whole world.

Hey sweetie.
I'm about to go to bed, though.

And I'm in a mood.
Anna S.: zenfen_mooneliade on June 25th, 2005 04:52 am (UTC)
*hugs you and your mood*

I'm sorry. Are we on the same cycle? Because that'd be pretty amazing.

I've been loving your comments, by the way, and I'm sorry I haven't replied yet. Except to say this. *love*

I hope you sleep very very well!

I'm here, the Ms are winning, and I'm waiting for some indication that my beta is alive, online, and received the chapter I need to post in the morning.

I'm no longer sucking all the writing juice out of the aether in this sector, maybe you should try again?

Non smutty but kinky... just wrote a bit of one of my kinks: I like it when a bad guy realizes he has to cooperate with, or aid, the white hats in the interest of his own survival; I especially like it when he does it with the full intent to make up for that by being particularly evil again as soon as possible.

And I really, really like it when the apparently stronger person in a relationship crumbles and reveals just how emotionally dependant they are.

Julia, should really be working on the ficathon piece. Or gardening by moonlight.

Ah, yes. I like that too. I loved the flashback episode of Jack's marriage (where Syd played Laura) because, oh man...marshmallow center.

Or gardening by moonlight.

That sounds lovely. :)

I'm online, because I have no life. And because I have approximately 30,000 ficathon stories to finish in the next three weeks.

I'm just boring. And torturing pretty bisexual time-travelers.
Anna S.: tina-turnereliade on June 25th, 2005 05:04 am (UTC)
I'm just boring. And torturing pretty bisexual time-travelers.

These two things present a logical contradiction. Or something sci-geeky like that. *g*

30,000 stories is a lot. If only they could each be one word long. Oh, I know--you could copy and paste text from random google results and call your style Dadaist. :)

People who are so exhausted that their defenses are stripped away.

The weird intimacy of talking quietly on the phone about mundane things like work.

The way a large project (theater,, other peformance, unusual work situation) brings out people's passion, the giddy "we're all in this together" that comes out no matter how bad things are. It's a bonding experience and it all turns out okay in the end.

Spoonerisms. Saying the wrong thing that's actually the right thing. The akwardness that comes when trying to correct oneself which just makes it worse/funnier.

Passionate geeky interest in just about any topic (but not sports).

People bonding over their shared desire *not* to have children, or their admitting that they don't like spending time with children (particularly female characters).
Anna S.: blair-sandburgeliade on June 25th, 2005 05:24 am (UTC)
Oh, you have great ones. I love these:

Spoonerisms. Saying the wrong thing that's actually the right thing. The akwardness that comes when trying to correct oneself which just makes it worse/funnier.

And:

Actually, all of them. The first and second ones are especially great too. I think that's why I love Marshall even when he's kind of OTT and you want to swat him--because he's the only real geek on the show. It'd be cool if the others occasionally got their geek on.

Morally ambiguous characters. Characters that are *right* and not *nice*. Characters that have -lived too long / seen too much / are not human / are not stereotypically American or have spent time in other cultures. Characters that don't succumb to gender roles.
Anna S.: muldereliade on June 25th, 2005 05:40 am (UTC)
Sorry, when I said "Actually, all of them" I meant all of your ideas are cool, not that all topics including sports were deserving of passionate geekery.

Why I felt the need to clarify that, I don't know. *g*

No, I'm not online. I'm off doing one of the million things I'm supposed to be doing. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. When all else fails, denial will see me through.

Non-smutty kinks I would think of if I were here, which, let's not forget, I'm not:
1) People who do not do vulnerability actually showing a teensy little bit of it anyway. I find that really emotionally intense.
2) Going all feral and furious in protection of one's mate. I can so see either Jack or Vaughn doing this, perhaps on a mission gone wrong, and it's very pretty.
3) Redemption seeking. Hey, it's sexy.
4) Snarky yet affectionate banter. It's as much fun to read as it is to do.
5) Casual physical contact that isn't casual because the people who are doing it are usually very untouchable. I feel that this gives the slightest brush of fingers a nice, zingy charge.
6) That well-oiled machine thing that was mentioned before. It's nice to see partners or a team operating in complete harmony.
7) Unexpected juxtapositions of character traits. For instance, that thing you mentioned about rednecks who turn out to be suprisingly tolerant. Also, this includes things like tough guy types who like to cook and cuddle kittens, or grandmothers who ride motorcycles.
8) Intelligence and competence, especially with a side helping of sarcastic wit.
9) Overcoming emotional or cultural barriers to be with someone. This can be getting past old trauma, having to revise sexual orientation, whatever.

Well it's Saturday morning for me, but I'm here!

Non-sex-kink: Not sure if it fits but I *love* discovery. That moment when someone finds out, a first time thing, or a friend finding out about a relationship. Or even just a past history type of thing. (I'm not that coherant on Saturday mornings am I?)
alittlebritonalittlebriton on June 25th, 2005 04:30 pm (UTC)
I'm so on board with discovery. Very nice. Also fruedian slips can be useful. As well as locked rooms with two people in them that have unresolved issues.
(Anonymous) on June 25th, 2005 03:02 pm (UTC)
My non-kinky idea: being extremely turned on but trapped in a situation (at work? on a mission?) with other people in close proximity and not being able to do anything about it, but your mate nonetheless totally picking up on your mood and throwing these little cues your way, inciting and flirting and making it worse, sort of a mini consummation. Still managing to fly under the radar of the other people who are around--or not, managing, quite, but that's cool too.
cindershadow on June 25th, 2005 10:09 pm (UTC)
Too late to the party to be of any immediate use (Sat. afternoon now), but since this question has been tugging at me since you asked it, forcing me to puzzle my own out, and you said you might use them later for other tales, I figured--what the heck! So--my (mostly) unsmutty kinks:

--Someone who really gets the other person, seeing through the image most people have (which is why I liked that exchanges between Jack and Vaughn in "Shortcuts" chapters "The Dinner Party" and "The Bedroom," among others)

--Subtle body language/touch to show relationships, particularly when the individuals themselves may not yet fully recognize what's going on (Vaughn on the phone with Jack at the coffee shop in "Shortcuts: The Office" and especially the shower scene in Paris at the end of ch. 6 in "Bona Fides," both Vaughn's unspoken offer and Jack's response, which gives rather than takes. I'm also really enjoying this aspect of the role of touch in your Sentinel stories, which lend themselves to that kind of sensuality/physicality, and you do it very well. The contact doesn't have to be overtly or even implicitly sexual--the hand on the back of the neck under the hair or on the shoulder, just as comfort, gets me every time. This is one of the reasons I love they way James Caan played his role in the Jane Fonda film "Comes a Horseman"--and despise him for describing it since as wussy, since it shows great strength and tenderness.)

And there are more nibbling at the corners of my mind, but these are two of the main ones, so I'll quit there.

It is not too late! I'm still totally stuck. :) <--> :(

I like your ideas--the touching, the *getting*. Yes. And a hand on the nape of the neck is a huge wow for me.

So cool to know you're reading Sentinel too! *g* I bring out my new Blair icon for you.

Thank you!
