Title: Bowls of Pasta (2/?)
Fandom: Narnia RPF
Characters/Pairings: James McAvoy/Georgie Henley, with bits of Ben Barnes/Georgie Henley on the side.
Rating: PG and it's utter crack, too.
Warnings: If you don't like OCs, you probably won't like one that's briefly mentioned in one of James's letters. I added a background character, she existed for comic relief. What can you do? *kanyeshrug*
Summary: Skandar and Ben make fun of each other endlessly; Georgie and James are tired of sisters; there are bacon, an unwanted guest, menopause, and a shouting Will P.
A/N: I became addicted to writing this. I don't even know what it is! It's utter crack is what it is, it's fun and it's (hopefully) funny and it's me writing whatever the hell I want to for my own entertainment. It's scatterbrained and all over the place and I hope you enjoy it. Bonjour et bienvenue, mes amis....
Also, it's necessary to read the first chapter to understand what's going on here.

Oh fuck you, Ben. I bet you don't even know what the books are titled, I bet you'd have to look it up. I bet you'd find not knowing the titles a valuable asset to your coolness.

Well I'll have you know they are excellent.

FINGERSMITH FOR FUCKING EVER.

Aside from that I really suggest you read them. Laugh at me, go ahead, well guess what? Anna's sister likes them. And I know you like Lulu. Even though she's probably a giant lez like we've discussed (not when Anna's around of course) but still that just makes her more legit and therefore COOL. Cooler than you.

She's a legit lesbian reading legitimately lesbian books and we can't even GO there! Her vagina is like a magical world, the portal to which we can NEVER open because WE DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT KEY. NO MATTER HOW KEY-LIKE DICKS ARE. BECAUSE SHE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT DICK.

It's just so baffling to me, HOW CAN YOU HAVE SEX WITH NO DICK? you can't put a vagina in a vagina

Georgie

It looks like I'm going to have to get tattooed then, doesn't it? No point in arguing now, is there? I suppose not. If I'm resigned this early on, then that resignation will turn to anticipation eventually. Anticipation will become excitement and I'll probably be ready by the time you're twenty-five or so.

OH DEAR GOD GEORGIE DON'T WRITE THINGS LIKE THAT PLEASE IF YOU WANT PEOPLE TO STAY SANE.

And I know I'm going to regret this, but...yes, it's a promise.

Anne-Marie's sister's just arrived from Bristol so I must go, we're welcoming her in, she always brings more luggage than she ought to* and I am always the one to carry it in. Bugger it.

Have a good night, I have to log off now.

James


* the emotional kind of luggage, too. urgh. i expect to hear a lot about serial boyfriends this week. also sitting in the kitchen with a guinness at 3:00 in the afternoon. even A-M hates it, she just calls you up out of nowhere at fecking noon and announces that she's on the way to your place and should be there by evening.

Subject: Fiona Duff Newsletter, Issue #1
Date: 1 February 2011 | 11:45 PM

Georgie, I told you I'd keep you posted and here we are. It's the Fiona Duff weekly (or not, depending on my mood) Newsletter. welcome and enjoy your stay.

Where do I begin?? It is her fifth night here, and this letter may be a bit disjointed, just like her life and my brain....


27 January [Night One]
On the first night we ate at Monkey Nuts [don't ask] and Fiona got pissed drunk. To be fair it was happy hour, but she got more than happy. More like a psychiatrist's nightmare fuel to be honest. She started on about her last boyfriend and it ended out with her standing on a chair, trying to insert her empty beer bottle as a tampon. [Don't worry she was wearing underwear]. It was ugly.
Her skirt which was made of PVC was pulled all up on her stomach in about two seconds, and then with the beer bottle. She forgot that her knickers existed and the fabric stopped her from actually getting the bottle in there. But still.

Anne-Marie had to fucking grab the bottle from her sister's crotch and then tackle her back into the booth. It took me and a couple blokes to get her into the car, but not before at least half the patrons left. I don't think we'll be allowed in there again.


28 January [Day One, since she arrived at night if you remember]
Fiona slept all day. A mercy which turned out to be false, since she woke at 6:00 PM and stayed up all night doing daytime things.

At 7 PM she made herself bacon and eggs. At 8 PM she went for a walk about town. Ten o'clock, she was exercising to a Pilates DVD in our living room.
She styled her hair with the loud blowdryer + every styling mousse on god's green earth at around midnight. It took her an hour.


I wanted to write more, but I hear loud crashes from outside and my car alarm is going off. Damn it.

James

James,

I feel for you. I really do. But this story can warrant only one type of response:

COMEDY GOLD. COMEDY GOLD JAMES.

I was reading it to Laura and she almost pissed her pants in laughter. I told her she better not, not on my pink fuzzy floor pillow, I already had to buy a new one of those from where she did last time (since you can't wash them). She told me that was four years ago, and why do I even remember it still??? Then kept laughing and she rolled over and barked like a dog, with paw-hands and everything.

Trust me I am more sane than my family.

And, Question: If you started your life over and were doing things differently, would you really not marry someone with siblings again?
Like if you met Anne-Marie and, magically knowing what you do now about horrible siblings-in-law, would you decide not to marry her because of it? Or would you marry her in spite of it, because you loved her? OR, would you marry someone completely different?

I've got to go, Rachael needs to use the computer. Something about typing up a resumé. Why didn't she just do that at her flat? She does that stuff here since printer paper is expensive etc etc etc.

you are not the only one dealing with a sister right now. But I've got two, so I wallop you in the annoyance contest. Give me proof I dont! keep these coming they're hilarious. comedy gold as i said.

Love,
Georgie.

Dear Anna,

I wonder what Georgie and Skandar and everyone are doing. To that point, how are you doing?

Things are all right here, Mum's going bonkers since she's in menopause now and we're replacing one of the windows that she threw a chair straight into. Actually she did that to two windows, but we're only fixing the one in the sitting room. The other one's covered in duct tape - Daisy's plan and let's see if it works.

Will

P.S. maybe Poulterface knows something about them we don't.

Oh Will stop being everyone's dad, I'm sure they're all fine. Yeah, I know, easy for me to talk, when I do the same thing. Still, your mum's probably making you nervous. You could rent a flat near here, I bet you'd find something cheapish.

If you want the Narnia bit, know that the pub where C. S. Lewis and Tolkien and all used to go is in Oxford, too...I can't remember the name...perhaps they've got a room....

Someone knocked over my porridge, i'm in the dining hall with a lap-top...oh fuck it.

Love,
Anna

P.S. it was actually someone else's porridge but i still want to go clean it up since i'm not just going to LEAVE IT LYING THERE am i?? i'll check with Will about the others by the way — A.

Dear Anna,
You're lucky I'm on-line right now, so you can get back to will right away and stop his epileptic seizures. make him eat some bacon. he'll like it and then he'll think like the hive mind. yes. yes. convert, convert, convert.... he shall think like us with enough bacon down his gullet
hee. hee.

And as for Georgie and Ben. NO. THEY ARE NOT DEAD FROM FUCKING...

...

...


...YET.


i can't make any promises for future.

then again, are you really sure they are? fucking, i mean. WE all joke about it behind their backs (and sometimes to their faces) but is it really happening? And if so, would you condone it (based on legal and moral aspects)? You are a barrister's daughter, after all.

And Skandar is alive. I am living and doing well, except that this girl who lives near me called Millicent won't stop sending me candy hearts and it's getting on my nerves. I heard she saw Dawn Treader about twelve times. I hope it's a lie. How do you put girls off?? Usually I want to make them like me BUT NOT HERE.

How are you two (you and Will)?

I really will shove that bacon down Will's uptight throat if he doesn't calm down
that's it i'm calling the guy.

Will

3 February 2011 | 7:30 PM


Will Moseley was brushing his teeth with a manual toothbrush when the call came. He immediately dropped the brush into the sink and spit vigorously. Running to the bedroom, he just managed to grab it on the last ring.

"Hello?"

"Is that you, baconface?" an aggressive voice demanded.

Will was befuddled in the extreme. "...Excuse me? Who is this?"

"YOU KNOW DAMN RUDDY WELL WHO I AM, BACON NO-FACE. YOU CALL ME WHEN YOU CALL!"

"What?" Now Will was slightly scared in addition to his confusion.

"Listen to me. It's very, very rude to send your girlfriend letters questioning her about people she doesn't even know!"

"Poulter, take your meds. Are we talking about Anna? What happened? And she's not my girlfriend, how many times do I have to tell you all —"

"As many times as it takes to make the truth false!"

Will "Baconface" Moseley sighed. When Will Poulter got into fistgrinding rages like this, usually out of protectiveness for Anna, it took a miracle and about ten Xanax to calm him down. Bacon No-Mates dove straight in.

"Where did this all start?" he patiently asked. That was all it took.

"You porkin', baconeating, emailing feet-grabber....

"I am alive. Skandar is alive. Anna is alive, Georgie is alive. Sometimes I question Ben's comprehension of the universe BUT HE IS ALL RIGHT TOO. AND ALIVE."

Bacon-Will began cheerfully. "Well thanks, I'd been wondering that lately —"

"I KNOW FUCKING WELL YOU HAVE. Stop bloody badgering Anna! She's our friend! E-mail harrassment will get you sued! I'll shove your bacontits down your throat —"

Will No-Mates heard a sound from the other end, then a voice, dimly.

Will, what's going on? A woman, Poulter's mother, maybe.

"Nothing, Mum. I'm on the phone to Baconface."

Oh, is that your drug dealer then? the woman joked wryly. For the first time, Moseley No-Mates wondered whether his younger counter-Will really was on drugs. But he dismissed the thought instantly as nonsensical. Will's pupils always looked the same. Drug use affected things like that, didn't it?

The young man sighed. "Yes, Mum, Will is my drug dealer. Would you like me to buy some pot for you? I know you're not into the heavier stuff."

Ah, so it's Moseley you're on with. In that case, just get me some china white.

"All right, then."

Supper's at eight, don't miss it. It's stew Millicent's mum sent over.

"Fucking Millicent again...." Poulter-nuts muttered.

I've had a talk with her mother. She should be out of your hair soon enough, I've made sure of it.

Poulter-nuts gasped in excitement. Enthusiastically he asked, "What, are you having her killed?"

No! A giggle, then receding footsteps. A door shutting.

Baconface Moseley decided this was the time to clear his throat.

"Oh, yeah, you're still on the line. Listen, Will, I have a bit of a problem."

I figured as much, Bacon-Will thought but didn't say. He was very relieved to hear Poulter-nuts's voice sounding far closer to normal. "What kind of a problem?"

"A girl problem."

"Ahh...."

"How do you put girls off? There's one who won't let up, she lives in my town, it's weird."

Bacon-Will was quiet for a moment, thinking. What did put girls off? Then it struck him like lightning on a Sunday morning.

"I've got exactly the cure. Listen, I've got this belt buckle, and every time I've flirted with a girl with it on, I've failed. Just from wearing this one belt."

"A belt?" Poulter-nuts was skeptical.

"Yep. It's in the shape of a ram's head, I can lend it to you by Saturday. She'll be off your back in no time...."

the end.
for now. once again, for now.

Another excellent chapter!
Georgie remains as adorable as ever (and the thought of her saying 'I make bank motherfucka' is priceless :)).

I feel rather sorry for WIll :( He seems kind of side-lined and lonely. I hope he's not going to stay that way.
Not knowing much about Will Poulter (or fandom's image of him) I was rather confused by angry!Will, and also the bacon references!
This is still fabulous though, and I'm really intrigued to see how everything pans out (especially Will's attempts to scare off poor Milicent :)). Hopefully there'll be more soon :)

I was feeling sorry for Will M. It's like, everyone else is all friendly and having fun, and he's having to check up on them through Anna. It just made me kind of sad for him :(

Will P with anger management issues is hilarious, especially as he actually seems to be the sweetest, most polite boy you could hope to meet. I love the idea that behind that gentle exterior there's a little red ball of rage struggling to escape!
LOL The bacon stuff mainly confused me because I figured it must be some sort of in joke that I was missing (my knowledge of Narnia canon is pretty good, but I'm very new to the RPF side of Narnia fandom). It makes a lot more sense now that I know that's not the case.

That belt buckle! D: I think any sane person would run a mile from that, so it'd be a good way of seeing if poor Milly is mainly sane but just with a bit of a hopeless crush, or whether she's completely lost it. Either way, one or other of them will be running a mile :D

The OCs didn't bother me at all; they worked really well. In fact, while I figured that Millicent was original I had no idea Anne-Marie's sister was. I loved reading about her excruciating embarrassing exploits. Poor James! And poor A-M :D

Still very much hoping that there'll be more to come!

ohgodohgod! That 1st response of Skandar (and him sending it without finishing!! Which totally has happened to me HA! now I have a thingy from gLab that let me undo the sending for the first 10 or so seconds? /end of random blabber) and with Ben's response I almost fall of my chair O.o giggling hysterically and Skandar comeback ohh!
-I just googled what does playing the field meant >.< just to be sure *embarrassed* lol
Oh I should like Ben and Skandar talking about girls and how to make them happy lol!

James and Georgie and her subtle hints and flirts are so cute that I want to get them together and just watch them be :) *loves*

The randoms-nes of Will and Anna .. lol! You got me laughing (loudly-again!) when I read And as for Georgie and Ben. NO. THEY ARE NOT DEAD FROM FUCKING... .. ... cause I had to scroll down the page to read the "...YET." LOLOL! Thinking Will P. will probably be shocked of the mere thought, oh the surprise! when actually that's old gossip/joke among them... lolol! OMG! Now my mind is going wild with scenes of them constantly teasing and joking about B/G fucking..

Will P is seriously (and funnily) messed out. BTW, what is with all this reference of bacon and stuff? lol! Is there another fic/interview/pic/article I should read or is just something you came up with?

OMG! I LOVE languages too! *tries to contain herself no to reach the comment limit* *takes a deep breath* *chants to herself* keep it simple don't ramble, keep it short!

Mine is Spanish.
Latin!! I like!! :))) Latin and its family of languages that is favorite!! I studied Modern Languages (Eng&French, but more English than French) so I studied it very technically (with linguistics, phonetics and phonology and literature practically by the book..) Image my shock when I first went to a message board (it was Harry Potter's).. HAHA! I say.. In the university?? They teach NOTHING! lol! Definitively, the language is made by the speaker. My first experience with the actual, real native speakers, even though it was written, was shocking and fascinating. Idioms!! OH I love them, even if most of the time I don't get them (lol)[rambling alert!!]

Oh English. And I'm still learning *sighs* specially when you don't actively practice it. You continually make mistakes because you're thinking in you're first lang and building every sentence and phrase and then translating it >.< And in my case I'm re learning it (and every language I learned, including my own *annoyed*) 'cause a CVA "blew up" the Brocca area in my brain that left me with a total aphasia, now, thank God!, just a slight accent to my own freaking language (lol) and the occasional blackout. [WARNING: rambling! End comment now] -lol!-

Are you learning Latin and then a Romance language? Or just for something else. I would think so, with Latin being a dead tongue and all, some people only learn it for specific purposes.
From: [identity profile] delsilencio.livejournal.com
Spain!! My grandfather too! (Basques) My sister and I wanted to visit one time but ETA blew a car bomb with their usual complaints :/ that day and we were advice not go near (or tell our last name, since apparently it had ties with ETA terrorism O.o WAH!? hearing about it with an ocean of distance is funny and even entertaining but there.. scary stuff

♥ Modern Languages! Yesss! I don't how they view the career in other countries. People thought my sis and I wanted to be Touristic guide!! and told us go to the institute to learn English (and study something else). GRR! People have no vision. We told them, EVERY TIME, that there is more to Modern Languages than being Tour Guide or a teacher. Besides you just don't learn the language, it's literature, culture, and the science behind (linguistics, phonetics, morphology, etc) It's great! You have many options to apply it. We took the Translation/Interpretation approach and after my stroke my sister decided to do a master on Speech and Language pathology (fascinating, I tell you!) There's nothing wrong with being a teacher. I was one before the stroke and I always said I didn't want to do it (lol) and I found myself liking it and finding very addictive, although draining and intimidating at first when you're 3 or 4 older that your students O.O lol!

OMG that is the kind of book of idioms I love, the one explaining the reason behind the phrase! Where did it come? WHY people started to saying this way and not the other way.. it's true to the statement of people making the language and sometimes I wonder to what extent having an Academy of Language setting rules for it actually helps at the end with its arbitrarily :/ I think it should be a joint effort. Some people think there shouldn't be one at all. Lol!

A stroke, yes. It was terrible and specially because I was 27 and didn't fit the profile to be having one. That b*tch of a neurologist thought I was in drugs! or pregnant or my boyfriend had dumped me, or sacked. She said I just having a nervous breakdown. I was so furious that the first thing I managed to say was NO! –lol Every time she asked her stupid clueless questions, from sheer anger. They said to my father, "There's nothing wrong, she doesn't want to talk, I'm going to refer her to a psychiatrist". AND that "*%/&)(" discharged me not before knocking me down with a tranquilizing! Just the year before I attended a teacher conference and one the lectures was the Brain, so I had a strong suspicion something blew up there (lol) I even googled it the next day for my sister to see it and then she went to that *"$•&$ doctor and gave her a piece of her mind. After that she ordered the resonance that confirmed the stroke in Brocca's area. It was very strange for me, because I was the subject and the observer; I was interested in everything that was happening to me from a pure scientific point of view. Why there were certain phonemes that I struggled with and not others. I tried to speak ASL with sister and I realized that I couldn't –as I was recuperating my speech with therapy, it was the same with ASL. Even for ASL you have to have your Brocca/Wernicke area intact. It was truly fascinating from a linguistic point of view!
From: [identity profile] delsilencio.livejournal.com
All doctors said I recuperated fast because I was young, and didn't smoke, didn't drink and do all crazy things etc.. (My brother and some friends think that because I was such a good girl it happened lolol!) but I think I just had no patience with people finishing what I wanted to say – which often they didn't get, hence my frustration and fast recovery to say exactly what I wanted lol! And believe or not, LJ helped me a lot. Since I had a medical leave from the Uni I was teaching (for the whole term that it was starting O.o) I found myself with lots of time, I did speech therapy twice a week and all the medical tests that followed and the rest was TIME for me! O.o LJ, being in fandoms. LOL! Fandom is good for you (THAT helped very much with my English oh! That's another theme! When you have learned other languages, what happened to them after a stroke). Another thing I realized when you have expressive aphasia, it's easier when you have all the letters in front of you (keyboard).

This past Monday it was 3 years (nono! Don't count! I stop at 28 lol) that happened and even though I sound like myself I still struggle when I am tired, stressed, excited, angry.. Which again brings me back to that amazing-ness of brain and how it works (after a stroke).

Words! ♥ (random though: I am always amazed by those authors/singers (like Tolkien or Enya) that enrich their stories/songs with a makeup language/words) It always amazed me how before learning a language, you listen to it being spoken and it's just jumble, strange, sometime funny meaningless sounds. Then you learn it and WOW the change is indeed magical. Well get yourself someone to speak Russian with or something about it (a show, singers, books), otherwise your interest will fade. I'm interested in Gaelic and I was so into it once that I kind of was trying to learn it but stopped because I didn't have anyone or anything to practice it.

Don't worry about taking your time to answer, I *know* real life (and work) can get in your way. The day we only get to surf the web at leisure without interruptions (just for eating and such)... *sighs* will be Great

They must felt threatened by a knowledgeable patient, and must hate the eternity they had on med school to know what we have with just a click. The Internet is such a great tool, if you know how to use it and discriminate all the crap that goes with it sometimes, of course lol! Oh Gosh you grandmother's got Parkinson :( That's sad.. and painful. But THANK GOD that your mother survived the cancer. (I lost an aunt to cancer last year. :(. Does your grandmothers has had that disease for much time?

*basks in the warm glow of your tiny misunderstanding* :)))) lol!
Well, I didn't exactly recover all the languages. In fact, I was about to make appointments to start my English speech therapy to complete at least that one. I started to read in Portuguese (FFs.. lol. Narnia fics, of all!) and to my relief not all is forgotten. But as I did in Spanish and will do in English, I have to do speech therapy if I want to be fully competent in that lang, since speech was what's affected the most. I did improve fast with Spanish and English with the exposure of them. LJ and Internet helped me with English as here was the only place I could interact and read and write my thoughts, which helped in some way the aphasia, (BTW, at that time, people didn't know, just my LJfriends). The only thing missing is my oral competence.. it's purely motor, cause I know exactly what I want to say and how just got the remnants of the psychical difficulties and a slight aphasia that I still cannot shake off. LOL!

Enya at least make up words for some her songs but not an entire language as Tolkien and G.R.R. Martin (A Song of Ice and Fire series) O.O AMAZING!

Welcome back to LJ/web world!

Haha, yay! Skandar and Ben's bickering is the best. As is Skandar flailing about in confusion over lesbian sex. AS IS THE IMPLICATION THAT LULU IS A LESBIAN. Georgie teasing James about the double meaning (and James's reaction) was great. I love James's first email about Anne-Marie's sister for some reason, it felt really real? Also LOL Anne-Marie's sister, and I enjoyed Anna's emails. You kiiinda lost me towards the end there, but I think maybe I just preferred the email-format? And it got pretty cracky, but like, it is a crackfic, so. Idk idk. DID LIKE THE BELT BUCKLE THING THOUGH. IT'S BEEN SO LONG SINCE I'VE SEEN THAT REFERENCED.
