Come hither, come hither!

This is the directory of stories by me, arctic_grey. Under the cut you will find select stories written between 2008 and 2012. I hope that you'll enjoy reading them!

Stories of boys
who stomped their feet, saying,
"Shut- shut up!
I am dreaming of places
where lovers have wings."

Gimme fictionCollapse )

Hey guys!

In these modern times we live in, we can now get stories bound as books pretty easily, which is great! This also means that a while back some of you started getting my fics bound as books. It now has gotten to the point where the fics-turning-into-books should be regulated somewhat, and so that’s what we’ll do!

Read more on what's available and how!Collapse )

Hi folks,

When my tumblr went, so did the THROAM chronology, and I've had a few people ask for it, and so here it is! Now let's see if I can still remember how to do a good ol' LJ-cut...

Chronology ahoy!Collapse )

They exist. Post-THROAM scribbles, that is. HUZZAH.

The original, actual story very much stands on its own. These ficlets have been self-indulgent to the fullest. They're short and offer small glimpses of things that I saw happening to Ryan and Brendon during their lives together. The first ficlet was written for a reader who made some artwork for a story and who originally did not wish for me to share the ficlet with others. Consider it's been a while now, though, I figured it'd be alright to let others read it too. :) I don't necessarily agree with my characterisation of Ryan in it, I've made him too timid, but it'd be too much effort to go change it. It's the longest ficlet there.

The fics have different POVs, so have fun with that. ;) And the third ficlet was once posted on my writing blog but it's been tweaked since. Also note how I kept writing in etymology bits into the ficlets. BECAUSE I CAN. And the last ficlet undoubtedly has numerous errors in it. Just roll with it.

This stuff hasn't been betaed because they're just ficlets. Just for fun. All mistakes are my own. Now let's see if I still remember how to do an LJ cut...

A/Ns: Be sure to go download the Vol.3 soundtrack! It's amazing, of course.

And that's it. This is The End, now it's done. I would like to thank C. for being a great help to me throughout the writing process, and Sarah for helping me out with BN Inc., which enabled me to focus on THROAM more. And I’d like to thank my sister for being an enthusiastic cheerleader – your support has meant more to me than anyone else’s. And I’d like to thank James who might never read the story, but without whom the story would have sucked.

Most of all, though, my sincere thank you to Tiffany. You didn’t know that the story would be this bloody long when I asked you to beta it, and you’ve stuck with me, never complained, fixed hundreds of typos, made the story better, and I want you to know that your time and effort are so, so appreciated. Thank you. <3

Lastly, thanks to all the readers for all the love, the artwork, the bitching at the characters. You guys have made the writing worthwhile. And thanks to THROAM!Ryan for letting me grow with him. I will miss him beyond words.

No one wants to hear me talk, though, so I'll hand it over to him one last time. <3

A/Ns: The epilogue will be posted on Wednesday. If you feel that there are any unanswered questions, then please refrain from asking them until you have read the epilogue that ties a lot of the loose ends. I've got a lot of cheesy shit to say, but I'll save that for Wednesday. But thank you for the love, thank you for reading, thanks to those who helped me (you know who you are), and thank you all for becoming a part of this world that I have loved endlessly over the past few years.

II: Chapter 9Collapse )
