taolac strip part 1
taolac strip part 2

Indeed I don't know you, but hey, thanks for the guilt trip all the same, it's a lovely feeling.

PSA: If you friended me just to get Art of Love and Cooking (aka my Puckurt food porn fic) updates, guys, just go to my AO3 page (here: http://archiveofourown.org/works/325863/chapters/525114 ). I don't know when I'll update that fic again, I'll probably turn it into an original story at some point, I have no idea -- for now I need to concentrate on getting money to survive. So yeah. If I ever update it, it's probably more convenient for you to get it through AO3 e-mail alerts or something.

I'm boss.

Good! Finished writing Rhapsody yesterday (AT LONG LAST. That script took me over A WHOLE YEAR to write! This is so not done. I don't even know why it took me so long, for a story that I had all planned out from the beginning) tonight I'll re-read it, correct it, maybe add more directions for the artist, and then on Monday I'll be free!... from that story at least. Well from the story of the series' first volume. Anyway, to-do list:

-develop a plot and an entire universe for a shounen series, since Dara-chan decided he wanted more than the little one-shot I wrote for him. Not complaining, here. I want to make it some kind of remake of The Island of Doctor Moreau. And, of course, HunterxHunter, since no matter what I do, no matter which new influences and authors and art I discover, I always go back to my gods: Alan Moore and Yoshihiro Togashi.
Anyway, chances are I'll be bothering you again about it if it works out.

-write that fucking third part of the third chapter of my Puck/Kurt food porn fic, The Art of Love and Cooking (my fic titles suck balls). Now that time has passed a little and I've re-read the two previous parts, I've decided I don't hate it and my writing in English and myself anymore, so I'll finally get around to finish that third chapter. In theory, the parts that follow shouldn't take that long, since that third chapter really was the most difficult to write for me. I really want to finish that fic; I said I would, and I will. è_____é

-at the same time, write the script for the second "episode" of Mytho. At least that shouldn't be too hard XD

After that, Inch'Allah. I dunno if I'll be able to write my massive Sherlock crossover fic, but at least I'd like to write the genderbent one; I've prepared a fanmix and everything, it would be a pity if I didn't complete it.

Other than that, happy Easter! Or happy some-kind-of-pagan-spring-festival. Or happy Sunny Sunday. A few friends and I went to the Parc de Sceaux today for a late Hanami picnic (we missed the right date, which is usually the second Sunday of April, but we decided to do it anyway) -- and the reason I'm telling you this is because I've finally tried to prepare the candied aubergines with the recipe I've linked in the bonus post to Umami!

Sunday FOOD Porn yaaaay!! ^0^

Rating: Hard R for this part. Last part will (finally!) be NC-17.

Fandom/Pairing: Glee, Puck/Kurt

Warnings/Spoilers: Food porn, and then some actual porn after that. No spoilers because it's an AU in which glee club didn't happen.

Comments: So in this chapter we learn more about Puck's life in France, this whole part is kind of angsty, I think. We also reach one of the main "knots" of the story, so some heavy revelations are made, I hope you'll still find this part okay, though. NGL, I feel a little anxious about it right now. I've put a lot of work into it as usual, but now I just don't know anymore. WiPs bring out the worst in me, jeez. =___=;;

Just to keep you posted, part 2 (out of 3) of Chapter Three of The Art of Love and Cooking has just been sent to beta. Another 4000 words or so.



Yay, finish line. I'm EXHAUSTED. I've been writing all week just to get that part done; I'll try to write part 3 as soon as I can, but for now, I hope you won't mind if I take a little break. X____X Writing in English for a long period of time hurts my brain; I'd love to update quicker, believe me, but this is truly the best I can do. I just checked: about 30 000 words already written for that fic, if I include the part I've just finished. This is insane.
And now I need to get RL work done, which also consist in writing, but in French, hurray, so hopefully my brain won't turn into jelly and start trickling down my ears. Gaaaah. Kill me already.

Comments: PLEASE DON'T KILL ME. This is part 1, part 2 and 3 will come later, 'kay? Again, this chapter is dedicated to my betas; they're really great and I can't thank them enough for the work they put in this. You rock, both of you. <3
In each part I try to put as much food and music (since this is still a Glee fic, yo) as I can, I feel there is a little less food and more music in this one. At the end of this post you will find a Youtube mix (just because it was simpler, never mind the videos that go with the songs, most of them are rubbish) with all the songs mentioned in here.

First part of chapter 3 of The Art of Love and Cooking has just been sent to beta reading! Yaaaaay!! I feel super relieved right now; I'll try to write the next two parts as fast as possible -- I'm on a roll! They will be cake compared to that first part, though -- that bitch made me die a thousand deaths, but I ended up prevailing, muahahaha!

Below the cut you'll find the first -- unbeta'd, which means there might be some grammar mistakes -- paragraph of the chapter that you can take as a preview cookie for what's coming, just to say sorry for the long wait and that this fic isn't dead; it's just that I'm horribly slow (and, yeah, I got slightly sidetracked by Sherlock too). Thank you all for your encouraging comments, they've been a great help to me! <3

By the way, there will be only three more chapters to this fic, and the next ones won't be as monstrous as this third chapter, so bear with me, hopefully the wait won't last for months again.

Here we go, preview cookie:

So raise your glass for me )

Here below is the (much overdue) bonus post to Chapter 2 of The Art of Love and Cooking (it's a PuckxKurt WiP that I'm writing where Puck is a chef. Yeah.). First of all, I'M SO SORRY GUYS. I'm unforgivable, I shouldn't have let so much time go between updates, it's just not done; but the good news is, I'm working on (the true nightmare that is) Chapter 3 as we speak, since I'm almost done with Rhapsody's script (at long last!). There will be about six chapters all in all for this fic I think, so please bear with me and my excruciatingly slow writing, I swear I'll finish it, I just don't know exactly when. Thank you to the people who have recently discovered and read the fic and left the sweetest comments, and thanks also to the regular readers, you all give me courage to wrestle my crappy English and get down to writing at last.

Careful, the post below might be a teeny bit image-heavy.

This part gave me pain. I swear. Stupid engagement party, you took way too long to write. The bonus post will be veeery nice, though -- with pictures, too! I also made a playlist for this fic (deezer is fucked, so in the end I made it on Youtube), and you'll find there some of the songs in this part (the Celine Dion one too, OMG), you may check it out: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=1848AC02C2B19C75

So as promised, here's the first bonus post to The Art of Love and Cooking. An "amuse-bouche" is food in small bites that are usually served between the dishes; sometimes they sum up a whole dish, and anounce what comes next. It litterally means "mouth-entertainer".

Why a bonus post? What will it be about?

Because I did a lot of research before writing this fic, and I learned a bunch of seriously cool stuff about food and chefs along the way, so I thought I really had to share it with you guys, since I know some of you are interested in it.
Take this as some kind of DVD commentary, where you can learn more about the recipes and some aspects of the fic I can't explain or linger on in the chapters. I'll talk about the food mentionned in the chapters, of course, but also food philosophy and great chefs. Although if I realize afterwards that this idea is boring everybody except myself to death, I promise I will stop, be not afraid ^^

How frequent will it be?

I'll post one bonus after each chapter - except if I don't have anything interesting to say, which might very well happen.

Want to share? Variants, stories, experiences, food philosophy, restaurants, favourite chefs or cookbooks, likes or dislikes? Want to trade recipes?

Then be my guest and feel free to comment on these posts, off-topic is permitted as long as it's still food we're talking about, or food-related anyway.

Comments: Sorry about the dialogues with hyphens, it comes from French language punctuation indeed (I'm amazed how fast you guys figured out I spoke French as a first language! ^0^ ....oh god I suck ;____; ). I'll sort that out with my future beta(s?) as soon as I can (answering your comments even sooner, btw, thank you for volunteering, people), thanks for pointing that out to me anyway ^^ This still has dialogues with hyphens since I wanted to post it as soon as it was done, but I will definitely edit it afterwards.

Warnings/Spoilers:
None, really. It's Alternate Universe, in which glee club never happened (no Mr Schue, yay!). I don't think I'll include the baby drama either. Well, I haven't quite made up my mind about it yet. Also, this fic is a slow-building one, I'm sorry about that. Well, not too slow, hopefully. Lots of OCs, sorry about that too. There will be sex, there will be drama, but mainly, there will be FOOD, and a lot of talk about food because I'm an obsessive glutton.

Comments:
The story comes originally from an incredible prompt I found on the [livejournal.com profile] puckurt  comm; I kinda took the idea and ran away with it, though, so it's not exactly like the original prompt, even if the general idea is the same. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] chavelaprincess  for this awesome prompt that is currently ruining my life since I really don't have the time to write this but doing it anyway.
