17th-Jul-2010 09:58 am - [Keeping the comm unpurged]
LJ is starting up a purging of journals that haven't been posted to in 24 consecutive months; this post is just to keep this comm unpurged.

I think I had offered to give someone else the reign of this comm, but I had forgotten who had wanted to take it (if any...I think I know who had in this particular case, but please remind me). If you are interested, please comment here and I'll give the reigns over for your use!

If you'd like to make sure your work is safe, please post them at your own journal if you haven't done so.

23rd-Nov-2007 02:42 pm - Wrong Maps Pete/Patrick Round=Over
He understood, then, that there was more to their endeavor than wrong maps and wrong turns. The trip had been about what was right -- and about having the right person beside him for the ride.
Blades of Grass, by burgerking

Out of all the awesome quotes we've seen in this challenge, I just think this one sums everything up wonderfully.

The last chapter was posted today. I really want to say thank you:

To the readers, thanks for taking a look at what we worked on. To jaydenrioblue for our header.

And to our writers. There aren't enough words. Honestly, thank you all.
I guess if we were naming an MVP, we'd probably give it to sobota, who effortlessly pulled out 4 fics.

And since I am complete corny, I'd ask that we'd all get MVPness, for coming on this road-trip and sharing the awesome.

Below the cut is a listing of the fics, with some sexy quote action. Check them out when you can, and if I've missed any, please inform me. And when we're ready to roll again, watch this space. We'll be glad to have you along for the ride.

Title: I Will Remember This 'Til The Day I Die
Author: Sue (

pseudonumity), otherwise known as...
Pairing: Pete/Patrick
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Pete and Patrick watch the sun rise.
Author's Note (1): Dudes, seriously. This province is beautiful. Pictures (I II III)!
Author's Note (2): The Wentz is infinitely quotable, but dear shit that boy's grammar hurts my brain.
Disclaimer: Not true and not mine.
Research Materials: Have any of you ever heard a Newfoundland accent? (In all fairness, this guy is a Cape Bretoner doing an impression, but it's fairly accurate.) 



19th-Nov-2007 06:25 pm - The Story Dragon

I haven't posted a fic in forever. I haven't even really written anything in weeks (maybe months, I don't know. It's been a crazy-long time, anyway), so apologies for the rust and verbosity. Once I started I just couldn't seem to stop.


Title: The Story Dragon

Author: Sue ([info]pseudonumity), now with a shiny new blog. 

Pairing: Pete/Patrick

Rating: NC-17 (which was really fun to try to write at work, let me tell you...)

Word Count: 2800. Sorry. She's long.

Summary: Patrick wakes up to find Pete's taken him across the border.

Author's Note (1): I took a little creative license here. I'm going with the Festival the way I remember it, and with the old Dragon because the new one sucks monstrous donkey cock.

Author’s Note (2): At an ungodly hour this morning I had an idea about how to end this, and sent off an e-mail seeking approval. I haven’t gotten a response yet, but I’m going with it anyway. If this gets retroactively shot down… well… meh. I’ll burn that bridge when I come to it.

Disclaimer: Not true and not mine. Any resemblance to real events is coincidental, and would probably be adamantly denied by festival organizers, anyway.

Warning: If you happen to be from around London and the Children's Festival is a beloved memory of innocence and mirth, I apologize for raping your childhood, but it's your own fault for reading this.



17th-Nov-2007 11:28 am - Blades of Grass {CNY}
Title: Blades of Grass
Location: Central/Upstate New York
Rationg: PG (Totally harmless)
Dedication: redzspike, my big gay best friend.
Author's Notes: A bit rushed but I hope you'll enjoy it. Keep in mind that whatever you think of when you think "New York" is wrong. Up here, everyone is backwards and sheltered. It's kind of a "simple living" sort of place.

The Motor Inn exists, unfortunately, and it's just off the thru-way -- which is a "turnpike" in any state but this one...

16th-Nov-2007 09:01 am - Last Reminders
Well, I've just sent out the last batch of reminders to writers. If you've gotten a reminder already, cool! If you find you can't do anything, dudes it is fine by me. We cool. Some people have messaged me that they'd be late or they simply couldn't do it... but that is ok, for real. Life happens and we keep rolling.

So, we're nearing the end of it! I had mentioned before that there were plans for a Wrong Maps Tour at the start of 2008, maybe including other bands that we know and love. You may or may not know I have NO IDEA how to carry this out. None. So if you want to throw in some suggestions, that would be awesome. If you think the idea might be too complicated (I feel a little that way myself if I allow myself to dwell on it too long), you can say.

Any other ideas? Fill us in!

Off to finish reading those last batch of fics.

Stay sassy.

13th-Nov-2007 02:08 pm - The City, It Never Sleeps
Title: The City, It Never Sleeps
Author: clippedwings
Location: New York, New York
Summary: The dastardly duo discover there's more than just the tourist traps to explore in good ol' Manhattan. Aka Chrissy knows the Upper West Side all too well.
Rating: PG-13
Author's Notes: Sorry this is late, I had major personal drama and the fic sort of exploded in my face. But it's done!

Author's Notes: Okay, I waited until midnight because I got a competition tomorrow... anyway, here's the piece for the South Jersey part of the wrong_maps challenge. Please enjoy!
