Jump in the Water, L/V, NC-17, WIP 1/2  
Title: Jump in the Water 1/2
Pairing/Character: Logan/Veronica, ensemble
Word Count: 6525
Rating: NC-17 for smut eventually (This part is only PG-13 though. Ha! I'm a tease!)
Summary: Woobie Logan and Pink Veronica get a little edge thanks to a game of Truth or Dare. Set to the tune of Kiss That Frog by Peter Gabriel.
Spoilers/Warnings: Preseries AU - I mostly hold to flashback timelines. Lilly is not dead.
A/N: I just realized this was far too many words for one post, so I thought I'd post the first half tonight while I finish writing the end. 'Cause certain people (starhermione86 and hippiedaisy27 that means you *wink*) were begging for some fic. Sorry it's not Triangulations, but at least it's something. More of less a cliche fic, though I can't remember where I was supposed to post for that challenge. Oh, well, Trixxie will tell me, won't you, love?

I'm trying to get my mojo back by starting at the beginning.Collapse )
Current Music: Kiss That Frog - Peter Gabriel

GERTINATOR fic!!!! What a way to make a good day better! This is lovely, I like how you characterize the relationship these kids have as a group, vipers indeed. And the mention of Aaron was sneaky, poor Logan, evil Lilly. This is really fun, can't wait for the next part!

I saw the stripey socks icon and I jumped up and down! :)

So good to have you back. :) Sigh.

I love your take on Logan/Lilly dynamic. Feels very true to what we saw of them. And also, very true of Lilly's attitude: She can do whatever, but Logan has to stay faithful, even when they are broken up. Plays so well to her insecurities. The ones she tried to hide with the over-the-top power trips. :)

And, man, the description of the boat party! Again, so very true of the dynamic. Hanging out with the popular crowd always meant you had to have survival strategies. These so-called friends that would trample you if you are not careful. :)

I can't wait to see where this is going. :)

And, ahem, might one dare to ask if "Triangulation" is planning on making a return? :)

Oh, and welcome back!!!

YAY!!!! I saw this posted this morning but I was good and waited so I would have something to look forward to after my classes. :D

Completely worth it.

Logan revealed that he had once hidden under a table in Alyssa Milano's dressing room and seen her naked.

Haha. Love the callback to 1x2.

This is sooooo good. Poor, innocent Veronica on the boat with all the debauchery and Logan, mmmmm. I love the hint of strength that she shows, it shows her transitioning and growing up really well when she finally stands up to Lilly. I also like your portrayal of Logan/Lilly, even though I love Lilly, I get a lot of fun out of reading her as a scheming bitch and I like that Logan did some growing up as well by realizing what she was up to.

One little thing... you wrote shear joy at one point, but I'm pretty sure you meant "sheer".

Anyway- I love the part with Logan and Veronica talking in bed and the way he notices her. It makes my heart all fluttery, as well as the little moments like about taking a tire iron to the car and hwo he hid her from view from Dick in the morning. There's some equally awww and then hot moments. And now I really want to download that song! Hehe. Anyway next part soon! I was so missing your stuff! :D

First of all, I got a shout out in your A/N! Every once in a while being a persistent pain in the ass does pay off. :-)

Now on to the fic. I cannot stress how much I love this. Lily is just how I love her, manipulative and self-absorbed. The LoVe stuff just made me amazingly happy.

"A shiver running down her spine told her she was definitely attracted to the dangerous, lost, confusing boy sitting across the circle from her"

I loved that line. Part of what makes Logan so attractive is the fact that he has hidden layers, partly dangerous, partly lost, and partly adorable woobie we all love.

Please post the rest of the fic soon, because I want to see how they deal with the new relationship and how others (Lily, Duncan, Keith) respond.

I don't have time to read this right now because I am heading to work. But I wanted to let you know, I screamed when I saw your name. I've missed you and your stories, U are an amazing writer!

YOUR BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
nocturnes: LoVeSwaymidnight_27 on April 20th, 2007 06:14 pm (UTC)
Yeah!!! You are back!

Love how you got a new story and the details you put in. The Lilly/Logan dynamic was interesting to read, especially during the whole challenge part where Veronica stood up to Lilly. The hints of Logan bashing the headlines in a fight and Lilly sleeping with 'someone's father' was a good touch.

Most of all, I really enjoy the Logan/Veronica moments. I really like how you put in Veronica's perspective of Logan wanting to be loved. Love Logan's line: You have turned out to be a surprising ally in my search for truth, justice and the American lay. The part of Veronica smelling Logan and their first kiss was perfect.

Can't wait for more!

I'm so glad you posted something. I was re-reading Triangulations last weekend and thought about you and what a shame it was that you were not posting anything. Anyway, great job and I look forward to part II.
