ANOTHER Chapter 17 Teaser!

This teaser specifically goes out to @misskikieg. Hon, I'm sorry about the next few days. Even though I gave you Jackson for a couple of hours, I hope this also makes you happy. LOL! I love you, my Angel. <3 P.S. The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball #BenMuthaFuckinJohnson played in second grade.



The door swung open, and, as I requested, every person who helped comfort me through the MJ craziness walked in the door.



“I hope you have enough food, woman. I didn’t eat all day in preparation for this dinner,” Kellan said as he walked over to me and gave me a kiss on the cheek.



As I waited for the potatoes to finish, I placed the meatloaf, turkeyloaf, and veggieloaf on the table along with the green bean recipe Suzy’s family gave me a few years ago. Kristen asked me how I was doing as she and Ashley took the salad and breadsticks over to the table to place near the loafs.



Once Jackson had put enough beer on the table to satisfy a frat boy, he walked over to me and gave me a quick kiss. I don’t know what came over me, but I grabbed him by the front of his shirt and pulled him back in for another. The fact that we were in a room full of our friends who could blatantly see us sucking face didn’t even register as he pushed me against the fridge.



“If you two start dry humping, I won’t hesitate to throw this salad at you,” I heard Kristen say.



“Shut up,” Jackson mumbled against my lips, causing me to smile against his.



“We should probably stop before we’re hosed down,” I said.



“Fine,” he agreed, pulling away from me. “We’ll finish this later.”


I'm still writing Chapter 17, by the way. This chapter has a lot of important shit going on so I'm trying to do right by it. Unfortunately, the way it's looking, a Saturday post probably won't happen. I'm so sorry about that for those who were looking forward to it. At this point, it'll probably go up early next week. From J's reaction, you guys won't be disappointed.



I know I tweeted this a couple of times already, but I'm unbelievably excited about it. C, CD received its first rec EVER today! @kitty_cullen from @Jaspers_Darlins said some really sweet things about me and the story. When I read the following from her rec, I actually cried: "I urge you, if you've ever even thought about reading a RPF, start with this one. You won't regret it." Go HERE to read the full rec post.





Con Amor Siempre,

Chapter 17 Teaser!

It's 6am on my day off and I'm awake. Have I mentioned how much my work schedule sucks this week? If not, I'll say it again. It blows! I'm working two overnights with no sleep recovery between them and my normal schedule. In fact, they have me working a double during the Spencer Bell concert when I asked for that day off. I'm working on getting out of it, though, so I can at least sit at home and watch the live feed.

OK, enough of my whining. Here's the teaser for Chapter 17:

I grabbed my bag, flinging it over my shoulder, and stood up. I kept my head down, praying with everything in me to not cry until I was in the car and on my way home.

“Where are you going?” I heard Jackson ask from behind me, my hand already on the doorknob.

“Home. It’s late.”

“Iris, we need to talk about this.”

I spun around, cursing the fact that my hair was so fucking long since it wrapped around my neck like a noose. I dropped my bag and grabbed at the hair that I was ready to tear out of my own head.

“What’s to talk about?” I asked as calmly as I could, walking past him to the living room’s coffee table.

“How about the fact that you’re so pissed off?”

“I just told you why I was pissed.”

He walked over and stood directly in front of me. From the close range, I saw that he was not only worried but scared.

Does the fucker think I’m gonna deck him or something?

“What’s really the matter?” he asked in an eerily calm voice.

And there's that. I feel like I need to warn some of you in regards to the tone of this chapter. I wrote it the night I found out about Facebook Whore and then lost internet connection. Since I didn't have anywhere else to channel the anger, it carried over into the story.

I received some AMAZING news yesterday. See --> :D C, CD is being rec'd on the Jasper's Darlins blog on Wednesday by Senorita @kitty_cullen! To my knowledge, this is the first time C, CD has been rec'd anywhere so I'm trying desperately not to pee my pants. Kitty's gonna include it in a whole "RPFs aren't as bad as people think" thing. As soon as the link is up, I'll tweet that baby out. <3 Kitty

Time to head back to the writing board! Let's see how long I can stay awake and not faceplant into my computer desk. LOL


Con Amor Siempre,
Iris

Chapter 16 Follow Up

So, you guys know I'm a giant crybaby, right? Well, let's just say that this past chapter had me SUPER wiggin. Here's why:

First, I'll say that I greatly underestimated you guys and your reactions to this chapter. For that, I'm sowwy. I be a bad friend. Lo siento! :( My giant worry was that nobody would get Iris'/my reaction to MJ's death. He didn't take over my life the way Mariah did, but he still had a huge influence on everything and everybody. I took a lot of shit over the years for being an MJ fan. Through the allegations and the cracks over the plastic surgery, I didn't budge. Why? Cuz I'm a crack-whore addict when it comes to my music. Whether I personally believe he did the things they accused him of, I'll never divulge. To me, as you guys know, it's not about the personal bullshit; it's about the music and the entertainment and the way I feel when I hear "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough" or watch "Thriller." Anyway, I was worried that you would look at Iris/me as a crybaby. Yeah, I cry at and about everything. The damn Folgers commercials around Christmas time cannot be watched without a trip to the Kleenex box. But MJ's death was HUGE. The worrier in me wondered whether you guys would get it. I'm happy to be proven wrong.

I know you guys are like, "Iris, WTF's up with all this 'Are they, aren't they?' bullshit? Just have them get nekkid already!" And to you I say, you should go read MoBS by @hunterhunting for all the seksi times. Jackris is still doing the "getting to know you" thing. Yes, they may have progressed to regularly molesting each other's lips, but Iris is a firm believer in labels. Just cuz she thinks they're together and wants it like KStew wants "It," it doesn't mean that it just is (did that make sense?). Words must be exchanged and a relationship must be formed and then developed before any potential nekkidness can happen. Plus, the faster the nekkidness happens (may or may not, btw), the faster C, CD ends and I'm not quite ready to let my baby go just yet. *sniffle*

C, CD timeline: Now, as we all know, Eclipse didn't start shooting in The Couve til September and I have them shooting as early as the last days of May. I addressed this in a early chapter's A/N, but I'll do it again so that you guys know where I'm coming from. I am all sorts about the reality of this fic, as you guys know since I harp on it ALL the time. However, I wanted to give Jackris at least four months to try and get something going between them. So, for those TwiHards reading my story, this is how I see it: New Moon shoots February-March, Rob and Kristen shoot Remember Me and The Runaways (not together obvi though it would be HILARIOUS) April-May, Eclipse shoots last days of May-October 31 (actual end date). Because I'm a nutcase, I will incorporate important things that actually happened during those months into the story. So, for those who know what I'm getting at, I will indeed be including Jackson's injury in September. If you have any questions regarding the timeline, tweet it or include it in a review. :)

Now, a serious note. I am a proud writer of an RPF. PROUD like a gay man in a sequined dress. For some reason, there has always been a stigma attached to RPFs. I discussed it briefly with @tellme_thetruth, the author or Vicious Circles, one day and thought I would be OK with the negativity that's thrown our general way. I decided to get the objective opinion on the subject, though. I headed over to adifferentforest.com, not my favorite fic site but one I still visit, and started a "campire." Those quotation marks were me rolling my eyes, by the way. Anywhoser, I asked the following: "What is it about RPFs that people find so offensive and/or taboo?" The responses I got were unbelievable. They ranged from "invasion of privacy" to "creepy" to "sick." Click HERE to read through them. For about 15 minutes, I started wondering about why I was writing what I am. Then *cue Superman theme* the lovely ladies known as @_JMC_09, author of The Unaccompanied Soul, @Sophz456, author of Camisado, and @tellme_thetruh swooped in and righted my ass. They reminded me that the same people that knock RPFs are also the same people that have vivid, sexual dreams about the Twilight cast. We're no different except that we have the cojones to write our shit down and put it out there for the masses. Once again, I became the hardcore bitch my mother has grown to hate and tolerate. I will NOT make excuses or be ashamed of what I write. So, suck on that, haters!

In case I haven't talked about this enough, the Faithful Shipper awards are accepting votes for their Winter 2010 awards. C, CD was nominated in EIGHT categories. I'm still doing a Linda Blair head spin thing. You can head HERE to cast your vote. Remember that you can only vote once and voting ends on April 17th. The Twilight Twins awards are accepting nominations for their "Summer Romance" awards. You can go HERE to nominate C, CD if you think it's worthy.

Non C, CD awards: I am heavily pimping Vicious Circles and The Woods for The Silent Tear awards. @banana_pncakes7 and @tellme_thetruth are two very talented authors. The Woods is my favorite fic ever (behind Wide Awake and ONLY cuz WA is complete) and Vicious Circles is an Jackson RPF that is too amazing for words. Please go HERE to nominate them.

So, my schedule this week gives me THREE days off. I think this is the boss' way of apologizing for the shitty schedule I've had to endure the past two weeks. I'm hoping to take these three days and give you an update within two weeks. I'm starting to get into some serious timeline/plot issues and I need to be on my game. I'm taking extra care to not fuck this up for you and for me. :)

Now that I have rambled enough to take up 10 minutes of your busy day, I'll be out. I have to go fight with @TheFakeGroupie over @TheFakeJAction on Twitter. Yes, this is my life. LOL

Thank you for continuing to put up with my craziness. I love you all. <3


Con Amor Siempre,
Iris

P.S. Thank you for the birthday wishes and for putting up with my drunken tweets! #DrunkenSocrates made an appearance but I think he went back to hiding once the hangover kicked in about halfway through my shift today. :P


Did you really think I wouldn't include this pic again? Psssssh! :P

Chapter 16 Extra Goodies

Karate Kid Crane Kick
Chariots Of Fire Theme Song
The Boy Who Could Fly
This could quite possibly be the worst trailer for one of the best movies of my life. Trust me and just watch it. :)

Mariah Carey's "I'll Be There" MJ Tribute
Michael Jackson's "Thriller"

Edward/Bella Fic Reccommendations
A Chance Encounter
Company Loves Misery
Secret
The Gentleman From Washington State

As J mentioned in the Teaser post, mah little story has been nominated in several categories for the Faithful Shipper awards. I don't even know how to begin to say "Thank You." It still amazes me that people are reading my story, let alone issuing death threats and plotting to kidnap my hard drive. You guys make me SO happy. You really have no idea. Aaaaand now I'm being told that I'm nominated in 8 categories, not the 7 I thought. What can I say? I was way too shocked and excited to count properly, I guess. Go HERE to vote! Remember,if you don't vote for me (which I totally wouldn't blame cuz I'm up against some of the best fics EVER) make sure you vote for The Woods. Ms @banana_pncakes7 deserves to have her talent acknowledged. She's far too amazing to not win everything she's nominated for. P.S. Voting ends April 17th and you can only vote once.

Also, please don't forget that The Twilight Twins awards are also accepting nominations for RP fics. Their theme for this award round is "Summer Romance" so there are a lot of cute categories. Go HERE to nominate.

So, if all is on schedule with the SuperBeta, Chapter 16 should be up on Twilighted tomorrow. As soon as that goes up, I'll post it on FF.Net. I'm a little worried how you'll take the latter half of the chapter, but I'll explain everything in the Follow Up blog post Sunday.


Con Amor Siempre,
Iris



I can't stop staring at this picture. Can you blame me?!

Chapter 16 Teaser!

This is J here!

So I asked Iris to let me post. I had to fight with her about it for a bit, because she kept saying that she was sure I was going to post inappropriate pictures on here which is sooo not true. Anyway, I wanted to make it known that I am not as mean or as ditzy as I feel she sometimes makes me out to be. Hehe! Also, she just tweeted the fact that I said not to post anything and totally made you guys hate me, and that is so not cool! I'm actually really nice! A bitch sometimes when people are mean to me or mess with my friends so... Yea.

Anyway, I'm here to say two things and then I will let you guys go back to your regularly scheduled programs.

1.) Vote for C, CD in the Faithful Shipper awards. I already did my civic duty and voted. You should, too! Vote here!

2.) Here is the teaser for Chapter 16 brought to you by me, J! Enjoy!

“What did you guys do?” Nikki asked.

“Ashley wanted us to put saran wrap on his toilet. He caught us coming out of his room and freaked,” I panted.

Out of nowhere, Jackson leaned down and gave me a quick kiss on the lips before going back to looking into the peephole of his door.

“I don’t see them so they have to be at the other end of the hall,” he said.

The casualness of the kiss threw me for a loop. I was two seconds away from giggling like that fucking schoolgirl so I walked over to the living room and flopped onto the floor and on my back. My hair was everywhere, I was slightly sweaty, and I was panting like I was in a Lamaze class. I could hear Kellan and Ashley on the other side of the door though I couldn’t make out exactly what they were screaming about. It suddenly got really quiet and then I heard the door swing open and slam shut. I raised my head off the floor to see Ashley come charging over in my direction and then sit on the couch. She was still holding the fucking saran wrap roll.

“I wish you guys could get out more,” I breathed. “You’re all getting stir crazy.”

I could hear Nikki yelling at Kellan through the door, telling him he could only come in when he calmed down. I must’ve looked like a crazy person, laughing like a maniac while on the floor with my hair all over the place.

“You think he’ll know what we did?” Ashley asked.

“Probably. All we can hope for is that he forgets that you were holding saran wrap,” I answered.

I began to pull myself up off the floor when I saw Jackson’s hands shoot out so that I could take them. He pulled me to my feet and smirked.

“By the time you two are done with this prank war, we’re all going to be innocent bystanders,” he fuckhawt chuckled, still holding my hands.

I didn’t get a chance to make a snarky comeback cuz he kissed me. He placed his hands on my hips and pulled me to him as I let my hands rest on his forearms, the kiss itself being slow and deep. He pulled away the moment we heard Nikki’s voice.

“That’s disgustingly cute.”

“I told you. At least they’re not on a couch this time,” Ashley threw in.

Anyway, I hope you guys liked! Remember to vote!

Love, Peace and Butterflies,
J


Ok, this is Iris again. Um, yeah. So the "inappropriate pictures" she was talking about? I told her that I was afraid she'd post penis pics or something on here. And now she yelling at me to not change anything she added to the blog. She's fucking crazy, but that's why I love her.

So... There's the teaser I chose for the chapter. Hope it makes ya happy. It should be posted on Saturday for my birthday. It's the only day of the week I managed to get off from work, go figure. Anyway, I'll let you fly peeps go for now. I'll have the Extra Goodies up tomorrow and a Follow-Up post done on Sunday cuz I feel like I'm going to have to defend myself quite a bit after you guys read this chapter.


Con Amor Siempre,
Iris


Say "Hello" to the star of all my dreams and the future father of my children! Fuck, that boy makes me wanna say and do all sorts of naughty things to him. *sigh*
