*iz dying*

So, I was sitting at work this afternoon, acting all normal, when I got an e-mail from paradise_city. We often e-mail each other during the day, and in fact, had been e-mailing each other about crack fics earlier that day, so I wasn't all that surprised when I received an email from her.

That was, until I read it:
Although I will admit to liking a lot of the Rodney/Bug!John fic that came out after "Conversion," and then I read that one where Rodney was clipping John's toenails and somehow that led to sex and then John left his penis's exoskeleton on Rodney's nightstand and that sort of ruined the whole genre for me. I'm forever afraid of a sneak attack penis exoskeleton now, which is just not right.


If the women who sit around me didn't already think I was crazy, they do now. I nearly *broke* something trying to keep the laughter down. I did in fact, fall off my chair, and probably broke something important in my brain.

The sad thing is, I really want to post this anonymously now to sgastoryfinders not because I want to read the fic, but just so I could make some of the members of that comm cry with despair for fandom. Maybe the Mascara Balls are enough for them.

PS. paradise_city, the google ad showing for my gmail account right now is for harem pants, cheap. I wish I could blame that one on you. *sigh* Also, I called you, to squeal over this. I'm not sure if you have a roommate or not, or if they'd listen to your messages, so I thoughtfully left the word penis out of my message, but *god*

Would it be childish of me to dare you to ask over at sgastoryfinders? Because I totally am. :P

The sad thing is, as far as requests on that comm go, this doesn't really stand out :P

It really, really doesn't!

Oh SGA fandom, what did we do to deserve you?

*seriously*
I live off this kind of crack. I think, no matter how disappointed I become with the canon of SGA, I don't think I'd ever be able to give this fandom up, because there just aren't many others out there that are as cracky as this! I mean, canon just leaves so much open for us! Not that you can really fit things like penguin!Fic into canon, but whatever.

Exactly! SGA fandom really IS my happy, cracked-out place and I'm holding on to it as long as possible.

The Taming of the Fly

It's lighthearted and hot in a fun way and I've always loved it.

Thanks so much.

Heh, well, you know people have a habit of taking the main idea of a fic and making it sound ridiculous while describing it. I'm going to try reading it :)

Well, it is kind of ridiculous, but it's also satisfyingly fun to read. I find myself just as fascinated by everything as Rodney. I bet he keeps that sheath ring and absently plays with it like a slinky when he's kept up at night thinking about problems.

Oh, my GOD. If I ever see Rodney with a Slinky now, I will die of fannish horror. Now I have to fear penile exoskeletons and legitimate Slinkys. Fandom is scarily awesome.

I shall bring a papier mache penis vase, as well as a slinky when I come :D

I haven't had a chance to get much beyond the first paragraph, but I'll definitely read it tonight. Even paradise_city admitted it was good (even if the exoskeleton part scared her :P), so I guess it just goes to show that when trying to describe memorable bits of fics, even the best fics sound absolutely ridiculous. :D

EXOSKELETONS!
Ahahahaha! Combined, we are awesome!

I finally got your message. My cell phone (which is the number you have, by the way, so feel free to leave any message you so desire in the future) didn't feel the need to tell me I had a voicemail, so I missed it until your email. But it was well worth it. aurora_84! sgastoryfinders! Commenters who are horrified! Commenters who think it's "sweet" and "awesome"! Commenters who find alternate uses for the exosekeleton! Oh, fandom. My love and horror, they live in equal parts in my secret heart of hearts.

The tricky thing is that it's actually a good story. I really like the way the author writes John's though processes as primal without being violent, like the way he simplifies Rodney to "help" and feeling good to "yum." It's great until the exoskeleton attacks you out of nowhere and than you can never go back.

Also, I know I'm going to regret this, but Mascara Balls?

God, imagine if we ever went through with that Elvis wedding :P

Oh, you're not going to get long distance/roaming charges if I call you on it, will you?

But it was well worth it.
:P Good, I almost didn't leave a message, but really, YOU MADE ME FALL OFF MY CHAIR. AT WORK. IN FRONT OF PEOPLE!

Commenters who find alternate uses for the exosekeleton!
Oh come on, you would totally use it as a vase if you had one!
And now, I'm oddly tempted to try and papier mache one, and bring it as a present with I visit. Speaking of visiting, maekala booked the hotel room ($105 total for the three nights, how awesome is that!), but she can only book for three nights in a row, so I hope it's still ok for me to stay with you on Thursday night.

My love and horror, they live in equal parts in my secret heart of hearts.
Ha, just wait, soon I will have the horror banished, and you will feel the same glee I do, when people photograph cookies having sex with marshmallows for help :D

Also, I know I'm going to regret this, but Mascara Balls?
It's not actually that bad, but *links*

Nope. No need to worry. :)

I wasn't sure if that was literal or not, but since it was, I feel like such a rock star, for real. I've made people laugh so hard they cried before, but I don't think I've ever made someone fall out of a chair. \0/

Yeah, that's totally fine. :) Just let me know how to get my third of the hotel payment to her. Oh, and let me know if there's some special kind of ticket I need to buy for the con. They come in several different levels, don't they?

Well rock on then, I was still kind of in my chair, but my butt was hanging off and the arm rests were all that kept me from the floor. :P

Actually she put it on my credit card, but we can just figure things out when we're there. As for the con tickets, I haven't actually bought mine yet, I should probably get on that, but I think I'm just going to get the basic one. PM is the only actor I really care about, so I'm sure the rest of the time we're just going to be checking out the fan panels, or hanging out. Unless there's something that you wanted to check out specifically.
