Well, I got this account mostly 'cause all the cool kids were doing it, because I certainly don't need another journal to keep up with. I'm pathetic with them already.

And yet, I took this opportunity of a 'fresh start' to consolidate all my fic/art from both LJ and IJ. Fic and art from Harry Potter, fic from Pirates of the Caribbean - I'd forgotten how much fic I wrote for PotC! A fun surprise. :) (while I'm at it, I wonder if I should step into the time machine and find my Buffy and X-Files fic... hmm) There's also new entries from my latest fandom, American Idol (specifically Adam Lambert/Kris Allen).

If you're here wondering if I'm legal to view your stuff, the answer is yes, in any country. :)

If I understand this correctly, you should be able to view all of my entries without being my friend, as long as you're at least 18. If you have any problems with this, however, just comment and let me know.
Title: Securing the Blessing
Author: [info]choose2live
Rating: G
Pairing: Adam Lambert/Sauli Koskinen
Length: 1546
Disclaimer: This is a complete work of fiction. I don’t know these people, and if you do, for the love of God go away.
Summary: The trip to Finland hasn’t gone as planned, but Adam still has something important to do before he and Sauli return to LA.

Author's Notes: Many, many thanks to @illuxxia for the Finnish translations and Sauli canon help, and to lovetoseverus and dreamsofspike for feedback on this unapologetic schmoop. :) All remaining errors are most certainly my own.

Happy new year, my neglected f-list! I come bearing random fic, featuring very talented, pretty, and lovable people. It is RPF. If you're wondering who on earth these people are, I'm not sure how you managed to not hear about Adam Lambert, but he is made of awesome. :)

Here's what you need to know: Kris Allen won American Idol in 2009. He is married to Katy. Adam Lambert was the runner-up. I hope you decide to check it out!

Title: Wonderland
Author: [profile] choose2live
Rating: story – PG; series – NC-17
Author: ChooseToLive
Pairing: Adam/Kris/Katy in slash, het, and poly combinations
Length: ~2400
Disclaimer: This is a complete work of fiction. I don’t know these people, and if you do, for the love of God go away.
Summary: When Kris auditioned for Idol, Katy never dreamed he'd make the Top 13, much less be crowned the winner. But if she was unprepared for that, it was nothing compared to meeting Adam. First in a series.
Author’s Notes: A huge thank you to lovetoseverus – who didn’t get mad when I took a leave of absence from our fandom, didn’t make fun when I confessed my obsession with Kradam, overcame her dislike of RPF to beta for me, has been my right hand for writing and my fellow Adam fangirl. You rock my world!

My dear friend [personal profile] veridian_dair is a wonderfully talented artist. She's been the one to motivate me to get back into art, myself, and I've been having a great time with it. One day a month or so ago, she asks me, "If you could be any fictional character, who would you be?" I didn't even have to think about it - "Elizabeth Swann."

And so, she embarked on a weeks-long effort to produce the following artwork for me, using a recent picture of myself and the AWE promo poster. I'm blown away by it, and I know you all will be too!
