(No, not for the awesome Apatow series.
Although obviously you can prompt away with those characters and that world all you want, loves.)

A place where we can celebrate those of a less conventional nature. Fun.
Your favourite villian? You bet your sweet arse count as a freak.
Most awesome medical drama? Dude, doctors are geeks, of course they are.


1. Is my love a freak or geek?
I don't know, do they feel like a freak or a geek? In your heart of hearts?

For the purpose of this, there are three categories:

THE ARCHETYPES: the ones that without any kind of doubt fit the category.
For freaks, this is: those not accepted by society, yours or their own. For geeks, it's those with an overenthusiastic nature towards things that are perhaps not all that popular (academia, sci-fi, blah-blah) in the grand scheme of things.
FREAKS: Abed Nadir- and probably every character (Community), River Tam, Eric/Phantom (Phantom of the Opera), EVERYONE FROM ROCKY HORROR, lmao.
GEEKS: Leonard, Sheldon (Big Bang Theory), Willow (BtVS), Fred (AtS)

THE INTERESTS: people who may or may not be freaks or geeks themselves but are engaging in freaky/geeky behaviour.
So maybe Quinn Fabray (Glee) is a stamp collector? Maybe Sid and Michelle (Skins) have got together to practise the occult?
It's about celebrating everything weiiiiiiiird.

AKA: The ones you can justify.
I can't think of every situation. And in all fairness, I wouldn't want to. Maybe you have a favourite play that two people in the entire world have read but you can justify that person as a geek or a freak, ("well, didn't you see them take an unhealthy fascination with the frog? GEEK"). I won't be checking all the entries, that's silliness. So don't fear repercussions. And the way I see it is, if they're a freak/geek to you, they're a freak/geek to me.

2. but... but... how do I get people to write for my freaks and geeks and geeks and freaks?

You comment to this post, you numpty.


Be as specific or as general as you like, have lyrics, settings, activities, a random word as your prompt. Have it written from one perspective, the other, both. Have some romance, or not. Have a slash ship or not. You can be as cracky and delicious as you can because the theme lets you be so general. YOU CAN DO ANYTHING.

Come on, you've done this before.


4. Do I have to write for this if I prompt?

Erm... No.
It'd be nice if you did.
But I often steal icons from people and I have no intention of learning how to make graphics.
Hence, the crappy graphics made by me.


You'll just be ignored and deleted. And I've been told that's the best way to deal with bullies, so watch out is all I'm saying.
Ships and characters are precious, don't break other people's toys.

6. SPOILERS ARE A GIVEN. Don't bitch.


If you are graphically-capable, please make me a banner.
I need the help.

Grey's Anatomy, Burke/Cristina, Chemistry (as in the science, not the obvious steaming hot chemistry that they had together. If you want to use real chemistry for smutty goodness, I'd never be opposed to that. Or any kind of science/sex mixture, haha.)

The Princess Diaries, Lilly Moscovitz, someone called me a vapid cunt and i said the sky is blue, bitch, i'm busy
an unholy mess of a girl.: new teenage romantics.corleones on October 23rd, 2010 03:20 pm (UTC)
Princess Diaries | Lilly Moscovitz | Calculating Bimbo

She gets an offer for her own tv show when she is twenty one.

She turns it down.

"I think I'd like to write a column instead," she tells her agent, coolly inspecting the picture hung up in her office. She's stopped actually looking at people when she talks to them. It's a lot easier to deal with humans when she doesn't have to look at their faces.

"But Lilly-- "

She waves a hand.

"I could do without all the foot fetishists."


It runs in the New York Times. The reviews are decent.

She gets her boyfriend at the time (Kenny 2.0, you could say, same glasses even) to read them for her.

He writes up summaries on post its and leaves them on the kitchen table with her breakfast.

Lilly tears them up after she's read them. One must, of course, live with oneself but one must never live with one's critics.


Mia sends her postcards from Genovia.

Lilly doesn't always have to time to write back but they do New Years in New York every year.

Drunken times are good for catching up, she learns. The princess likes her martinis.


When she is turning thirty, she buys tickets to a concert as a treat to herself.

She doesn't bother to check the line up. It's at the Met. She's grown to trust their taste.

Boris Pelkowski is behind the violin. His sweater is still tucked into his shirt.

He looks exactly the same.

(Lilly doesn't know what to do with this.)


She goes up to him after the show.

"You look good."

Her smile is sharp. "New glasses."

"They suit you."

"How are you, Boris?"

He grins, slow and warm and white teeth and good god, Lilly Moscovitz, get a hold of yourself.

"I'm fine," he says.


They sleep together for the first time on the living room carpet of his studio apartment and in the morning, Lilly doesn't know what to do with herself.

She wakes up on the floor, under a thick quilt. She wraps it around herself carefully and dares to open her eyes.

"You want a bagel?"

She nods.


Her therapist says this is good for her. She's finally getting closure.

"The boy threw a globe on his head for me. I don't think closure is really what he needs."

"He was young, then. It's not a good idea to assume he's still hung up on you."

"No. No, of course, he isn't."


After a few times, he insists on taking her out for dinner. They have Chinese.

"So, what, Mr. Violinist, you don't have a girlfriend or something?"

Boris looks confused.

"I thought you were my girlfriend."

Oh, Boris.


He asks her to marry him six months later. It is not romantic.

She is putting on eyeliner, sitting at the end of his bed with a mirror propped on her knees and she is going to be late to work and it's going to look like she hasn't gone to bed all night because she was too busy having sex and her lashes don't want to open all the way and Boris says --

"Lilly, will you marry me?"



They have a house in Brooklyn now.

And a cocker spaniel.


Lilly writes her first book when she is thirty five.

It doesn't sell as well as Mia's.

She thinks she might just not care.

(The critics like her better, though.)
