"Let's Go To Bed," Bean/Bloom

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Title: Let's Go To Bed
Author: [info]tmihily (Hilary)
Pairing/Categories: Bean/Bloom + some Viggo
Feedback: please
Warnings: none, unless you have a voyeurism squick
Disclaimers: I do realize this is not real. I also do not know either of these guys and I never once believed they're actually shagging, and neither should you.
Notes: for [info]ficrocksthe80s; my song was The Cure, "Let's Go To Bed" -- lyrics are there. Sort of gacked from that video that went around a while back of the two guys kissing while their friends watched and laughed.

What Are Words For? (1/5) (Harry/Draco, NC17)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Title: What Are Words For?
Author: [info]salixbabylon
Pairing: Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy
Prompt: "Words" – Missing Persons, part of the [info]ficrocksthe80s fest
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5637
Disclaimer: JKR owns everything. I just like to play naughty games with her dollies.

Summary: "Six months after the end of the war Harry decided, admittedly in a fit of pique, that he wasn't going to talk any more."

Author's Notes: Surprisingly mostly canon compliant, even with DH. Only I didn't kill Fred because that's just wrong. Also warning = plot! Not my usual PWP-fare. Tons of thanks to my beloved beta, [info]sarka *smooch*

FIC: What Makes Her Come, and What Makes Her Stay (Casino Royale RPF)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Please note that I am posting this for Viktoria and that I didn't write it. :)

Title: What Makes Her Come, and What Makes Her Stay?
Author: Viktoria Angelique
Fandom: Casino Royale RPH AU
Pairings: Daniel Craig/Eva Green, implied Eva Green/Orlando Bloom
Rating: R
Prompt: Everybody Have Fun Tonight -- Wang Chung
Disclaimer: Not true, not meant to imply anything about anyone, etc etc. Also no beta, and edited last-minute, so any mistakes are my own.
Summary: Well, I couldn't quite bring myself to write something quite as happy-go-lucky as this song, which I was never a huge fan of, but I looked at the lyrics and decided that I could make it a bit more serious if I just focused on the "getting away from others" aspect. I also was somewhat inspired by another song, Damien Rice's "The Professor and La Fille Dance," from which the title comes. The characters are Daniel Craig, Eva Green, and Mads Mikkelsen, all actors in the film Casino Royale, along with a sort of cameo by Orlando Bloom as I needed a young pretty boy :-D Ages adjusted as needed.

…and what makes the animal run, run away? )

Title: Tenderness
Author: [info]chaosmanor
Fandom/Pairing: Original fiction
Song Prompt: Tenderness, by General Public
Rating: R for language
Disclaimer: Original fiction, belonging only to the author. Even the poetry is mine, and I'm sorry about that, but it was necessary.
Summary: There weren't many people Dave would go to a poetry reading for.
Notes: (if any) Um, I seem to have written original fiction.

Need, (SGA, John/Rodney, NC-17)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Title: Need
Author: [info]saldemonium
Fandom/Pairing: SGA, John/Rodney
Song Prompt: Major Tom (Coming Home)
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: Not mine. I wish. If they were, they'd do a lot more boinking in the show.
Summary: Aliens make John spank Rodney, but they don't have to twist his arm too hard.
Notes: I started writing this for telesilla's Smack A 'Lantean On the Ass Weekend. Then it started getting long, and I decided I liked it better for my prompt than I did the other fic I'd been working on. =) Actually, I found it pretty difficult to write something that fit this song. I started four different fics before this, but they didn't work out, and one would have been pages and pages long to do it any justice. So, I was thinking about how John and Rodney are sort of drifting and alone, until they find one another, a coming home, if you will. It might not be an obvious fit, but turn your head and squint a bit. ;)

Shut up?! Shut up?! You're not the one tied up and bent over, Colonel! )

He's a Maniac, Sam/Dean, PG, by wolfshark

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Title: He's a Maniac
Author: wolfshark
Fandom/Pairing: SPN, Sam/Dean implied
Song Prompt: Maniac Lyrics can be found here.
Rating: PG - I know! I can't believe it either!
Disclaimer: Not mine, don't sue.
Summary:Sam couldn't help feeling like Dean was a maniac - completely and absolutely insane. And he was going to yell at him about it, just as soon as he saved Dean's ass from the demon currently playing games.

He's a Maniac )

Idaho Mortensen and the Obelisk of Osiris (VM/OB/KU - PG13)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Title: Idaho Mortensen and the Obelisk of Osiris
Author: [info]nosselinfea
Fandom/Pairing: AU Viggo Mortensen/Orlando Bloom/Karl Urban
Song Prompt: Walk Like an Egyptian – The Bangles
Rating: Probably a PG-13. Slash implied but nothing graphic or explicit.
Disclaimer: This is all fiction, nothing is real. I don’t own these men, I only wish I did.
Summary: Viggo is an archaeologist on the hunt for a valuable and powerful artifact in Egypt. But others are after the same thing and now it has become a deadly race.
Notes: The song I was given inspired me to write something in the vein of Indiana Jones. This is therefore obviously a very AU story. It's also funny, cheesy, and pure 1980s. Thanks to Jack for the beta. 4,200 words.

FIC: Roam, or Eight and a Half Conversations with Aunt Jenn (TPM AU, Qui/Obi, R)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Title: Roam, or Eight and a Half Conversations with Aunt Jenn
Author: [info]temve
Fandom/Pairing: Star-Wars-TPM-fem-Earth-AU - in other words, OB and Jenn bear a certain undeniable resemblance to Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn. Except they're women. And both at least partially Irish.
Song Prompt: Roam by the B-52s
Rating: R to be on the safe side
Disclaimer: I do not own the rights to Star Wars, Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, or the Romanian movie poster described in the fic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Summary: OB is absolutely positive that 'Roam if you want to' is the most ridiculous piece of advice she's ever been given. At least until she ends up doing it.
Notes: This is where I confess to being probably the only author in this challenge who had never even heard her prompt song before. But the B-52s have a way of inspiring femslash, so here you go. Also, [info]shrieking_ell has a way of inspiring femslash too, and has kindly betaed this into shape for me. Any remaining mistakes are my own!

Disclaimer: I don't know trhese men, and I made it all up. Lies, all lies.

Notes: Beta: the wonderful Debbiej

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Welcome to [info]ficrocksthe80s, a pan-fandom fic-writing challenge!

The very very basic gist of this challenge is this:

1. You sign up to write a fic.
2. We send you a song from the '80s. (Not just any random song, mind you; these are the hits that ROCKED THE '80s! You will recognize it!)
3. You write something inspired by that song (no, it doesn't have to be songfic, the lyrics don't have to be featured, and your characters don't have to exist in the same world that created the song).
4. You post your fic.
5. We all cheer for the '80s music nostalgia!

Signups will go live on September 10 and will close down September 16.

Posting starts on October 31.

A more complete set of rules will follow in the next day or two, but minimum word count will be 1000, no max, and any fandom (including RPS) is welcome -- though we'll ask you to have appropriate disclaimers on your fic.

Your moderators for this challenge are [info]telesilla and [info]helens78.

Woohoo! '80s music nostalgia, here we come!
