I'm baaaaaaack~! I had losta fun in good ole San Fran, though I dunno if I'm actually gonna do a picspam.

Before I can do anything at all, however, I need to purge my brain of all the drawing ideas that have backed up over the weekend.

I love my brain, but even when I'm on vacation it doesn't give me a break! I've got three ideas, all Darkwing Duck. One's a Liquidator/Bushroot piece that I'm going to draw to "The Best is Yet to Come" by Frank Sinatra because IT IS SUCH A LICKY/BUSHY SONG HEEEEEE! ::cough:: The other is a kind of speculative poster thing for [ profile] erica_x's "Playing With Nightmares"- it's been stuck in my head, like, all day. And the last is prolly gonna end up as a crack fic, one way or another- it's of Bushroot having an affair with a bee.

Like I said, I LOVE MY BRAIN. ♥

Welcome back!

Naturally I had to Google the lyrics to that song since you said it reminded of you Bushy/Licky. (As if the 17 songs I have on my playlist for that pairing aren't enough, hah!) The lyrics intrigue, so I'm going to hunt it up on YouTube later.

And I'm eagerly awaiting the art you've been inspired to do! :D

I've- er... already finished it. :DD;; I'm gonna have to do an opinion-post on f-lock to see if I put too many of the lyrics into the pic and if I should remedy that, but otherwise I'M DONE. ♥

THIS IS ME ON A DRAWING SPREE. I have Bushy/a bee half way inked already, and Paddywhack in the poster-thing IS GOING TO MURDER ME AAAAAH. ::needs to learn to draw him::

This is also me while in the beginning stages of being sleep-deprived, so please excuse the occasional caps.

OH YEAH I FORGOT may I know what those 17 songs are? :DD I don't function well when I try to draw without music, so I'm always looking for more songs to add to my art playlist! ♥

I admit I'm curious about your Bushroot and the bee idea. Does it involve pollination? Hehe!

And sure, I'll share my list of 17 songs with you! Music inspires me a lot too. I have playlists for pairings and characters and shows. (Our discussion in [ profile] darkwing_fans even got me started on a new, short Negaverse fic playlist last week, even though I haven't started any such fic yet.)

I'll give you a standard Licky-style YMMV disclaimer here though, as this is a list of songs containing various genres and moods that I associate with them for one reason or another. I'm not sure they all make sense to anyone but me, given how subjective interpretation of music can be. A lot are kind of angsty or bittersweet, or more physical/sexual as opposed to romantic. Several of them would fit a Bushroot/Liquidator relationship like in EricaX's fics as opposed to my more affectionate portrayal of their relationship in my fics.

1. "Alive and Kicking" by Simple Minds (Strikes me as Bushy thinking about Licky.)
2. "Love for Sale" by Talking Heads (Though this could really be Licky with anyone, the song just seems to fit him so well.)
3. "Never" by Heart (Strikes me as Licky thinking of Bushroot.)
4. "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" by Dead or Alive (Makes me think of Liquidator hitting on Bushy.)
5. "All Over You" by Live (Kind of a weird one, and a bit dysfunctional, but makes me think of them regardless)
6. "Sea of Sin" by Depeche Mode (Mostly a physical/sexual association, from Bushroot's POV, thinking about being with Licky)
7. "Sweetest Perfection" by Depeche Mode (This one's purely a sexual/physical association, but it makes me think of Bushroot's reaction to Licky's watery erotic touch.)
8. "Urgent" by Foreigner (Yeah, I know there's a DW/Negs slash fic with this title too, but I can see it for Bushy/Licky too.)
9. "Kinda I Want To" by Nine Inch Nails (Makes me think of a hesitant Bushroot fighting his attraction to someone like Licky, actually I think this fits in really well with EricaX's storyline with those two.)
10. "Run-Around" by Blues Traveler (Situational association, but the tone of the song makes me think of Bushy fed up by Licky if he was playing games with him.)
11. "Turbo Lover" by Judas Priest (Fairly physical, but I can feel this as Licky thinking of Bushroot.)
12. "Just One Day" by Anything Box (Angsty and melodramatic Bushroot thinking about a complicated relationship with Licky that isn't working out. Again I can really picture this with Bushy in EricaX's stories.)
13. "Until the End of the World" by U2 (Brings associations of a somewhat repentant Licky thinking about Bushroot after he's treated him badly.)
14. "Caught In a Spin" by Andy Bell (Loose associations, but it makes me think of them regardless.)
15. "Blue" by the Verve (Somewhat angsty, but this strikes me as Bushroot thinking about Liquidator.)
16. "Heartbreaker" by Pat Benetar (Bushroot thinking about Licky after he's been seduced.)
17. "Suffer Well" by Depeche Mode (This is another loose one, really it's more of a "Bushy's feeling emo in general" song to me, though the lines about "an angel led me while I was blind" and "You called my name, my love was born" to me always instantly come up as Licky when I think about Bushy when I hear this song.)

(Edited to fix redundancy I failed to catch in preview mode.)

It does, actually! ♥

EEE! ::makes grabby hands::

I'm not sure they all make sense to anyone but me, given how subjective interpretation of music can be.

Heh. DON'T WORRY my brain insists on associating Bushroot with Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody", SO I UNDERSTAND.

THANKS A LOT FOR SUCH AN AWESOME PLAYLIST BTW "You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)" and "Sweetest Perfection" have BOTH attacked me and demanded to be drawn. XDD

"Sweetest infection" is now my favorite phrase.

Also, "Turbo Lover" is SO THEM MY GOSH.

HOW DO YOU FIND THESE SONGS? "Your love is like a tidal wave" "In my dream I was drowning my sorrows/But my sorrows they learned to swim" "Sea of Sin" "Our love is like water" I MEAN REALLY I found myself fortunate that "The Best is Yet to Come" had that first line with trees and plums! XD

Regarding "Bohemian Rhapsody" for Bushroot? I can totally see that. Heh, I should probably grab an mp3 of that sometime that isn't Weird Al's polka version.

And I can't wait to see your pics based on "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" and "Sweetest Perfection"! I can't get enough Bushy/Licky.

As for how I find the songs, a lot were mp3s I had before getting back into DWD, that just struck me when they popped up. Some also were songs I discovered listening to Sirius (generally 80s on 8, First Wave, or Hair Nation). I'd never heard "Turbo Lover" until it played on Hair Nation, but instantly I was like "holy crap this makes me think of Licky and Bushy" and I got a copy of it ASAP.

Oh, and about the Negaverse story list? It's only got 3 songs ("So In Love" by OMD which makes me think of Nega-Bushy thinking of Nega-Rhoda, "Pop Song 89" by REM which makes me think of Nega-Megavolt, and "Wrong" by Depeche Mode which just strikes me as a general Negaverse-ish song) so far but I'm sure I'll add more to it eventually. I'm toying with the idea of gathering my ideas into notes for that story and tackling it in November as this year's NaNoWriMo project. I did it for the first time last year, and it'd be fun to do a DWD fic for it this year. Plus that gives me a few months to work on other stuff in the interim.

Every time I get to "Mama, just killed a man/put a gun against his head/pulled my trigger now he's dead. Mama, life had just begun/but now I've gone and thrown it all away," I think "BUUUSHROOOOT! ♥" And the whole thing about "Any way the wind blows/doesn't really matter to me/to me," because he's plant and blahblahblah insert plant metaphor here.

And I can't wait to see your pics based on "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" and "Sweetest Perfection"! I can't get enough Bushy/Licky.

I drew something Licky/Bushy while listening to "Sweetest Perfection" and "Turbo Lover," and I was blushing the entire time. I don't normally show that kinda stuff I draw publicly (in fact, I have a little desk drawer in my room that I hopehopehope my mom never finds for that kinda stuff. They don't stay in my sketchbooks for long. .///. )) but because it was inspired by you I may just f-lock it. So, you know, only you can see it. ^///^

Yay more songs! \o/

Oooo, NaNoWriMo! :D I'm looking forward to it!

Ooooh, pretty please? I wanna see! XD

This so makes me want to write more Bushy/Licky fluff and/or sex...

As soon as I get Bushroot right. ^_^ I may not color it though, because I've also been working on that PWN poster, which has decided to take over my hand for the forseeable future.

Doo eeeeet! ♥

Awesome! And I'm fine with seeing a sketch if that's what you've got. I'm looking forward to the Paddywhack poster too, so it's all good.

And uh, I'm working on that now, actually. All this Bushroot/Liquidator talk has inspired me to write out another Licky-seduces-Bushy scene that's been kicking around in my head.

As of where I finished off last night too tired to write any more, it was up to 3216 words, and not over yet. Hehehe!

I have to polish and post the little morning-after Bushy/Licky fluff that I wrote the other day that goes between Splash in the Dark and this piece, too. Unfortunately I'm stumped on a title for it. I hate it when that happens!

Goodness, you write fast! XD

Would you like any help on the title? ::horrifically bad at titles but wanting it to be posted sooooon:: :D

Oh, sure, if you have any suggestions I'd be thrilled to hear them.

Titles are evil. Thanks anyway, though!

On a positive note, while my husband and our visiting friend were watching a movie I wasn't into last night, I got a little more Licky/Bushy lovin' written.

I still want to see Bushy pollinated by his bee friend, hehehe!

Oh, and I listened to that Sinatra song from your picture on YouTube. It's adorable picturing Liquidator and Bushroot to it. :D

ISN'T IT? I grin like a loon whenever I listen to it now.

There's one more Sinatra that I've got for those two, and it's "I Believe in You." It so Bushroot thinking about Licky and how awesome he is. ♥ "You have the cool, clear eyes of a seeker of wisdom and truth. Yet there's that upturned chin and the grin of impetuous youth. I believe in you. I believe in you. I hear the sound of good solid judgment whenever you talk. Yet there's a bold, brave spring of the tiger that quickens your walk. I believe in you."

Huh!? What!? WHAT!?

That was seriously my reaction when I first noticed "Playing with Nightmares" in your journal entry. I was just skimming through, as usual, and suddenly I read that and up above was my reaction. I then go and read it. Read it again. Read it a thrid time and it finally clicked. LOL

A poster? For my fic? Thank you! :D

And oooh, a Bushroot fic! hehehehe. Glad you're having a good time on vacation!
