I Think I Need A New Obsession.
Hey. So. I have ideas and am not sure which ones to entertain. FLIST, HELP ME!

I've been writing Donna/Harvey in formal wear fun through the "Some Times" series (heh, series, of two parts), and am torn on where to go next. Poll time? POLL TIME!

Poll #1871944 Donna/Harvey Formal Wear Fun

"Some Times" Fic - What Happens Next?

Line? What line? CROSS IT. SEXY!TIMES NOW.
Hold that line! Delicious UST. I NEEDS MOAR.
ALL THE THINGS. UST! RST! AU! *flail hands*
Move on from formal wear already. New fic idea time!
What is a Donna/Harvey? WHY U NO WRITE OTHER FANDOMS?
It's Sparktober, woman! Get it together and write me Sparky fic!
I has other thoughts! Ideas! Prompts! See comments.
Ticky Box! TICKY BOX!!

Also? Can other people like Go On before it's cancelled please? I am falling in love with it hard and will cry if it goes away. *wibble*

ETA: I checked the ratings and Go On was actually significantly up this week - 33% bump in the demo! It beat New Girl! So. Nevermind. YAY GO ON!

Yay, first one to vote and comment so it's no secret which way I voted. ;)

Haha! A vote for sexy times means rainbows and puppies and unicorns now exist together somewhere in the world, so that's always a good choice. ;)

NEVER EVER EVER STOP WRITING HARVEY/DONNA FICS! (Unless you really don't want to anymore, but then you'll have me sobbing in a corner, and it won't be pretty.)

Voted for sexy times. Go figure. But UST is okay too. Anything with these two. I'm not really picky if you write it.

Also, WHAT? Go On can't get cancelled because it's awesome and I need it in my life. It's sweet and funny and crazy and all things wonderful.

And... *goes to sleep*
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: October 11th, 2012 11:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
*CLINGS TO YOU* As long as you keep reading them, y/y?

And I actually like all the scenarios but couldn't decide which one to follow. MAYBE ALL OF THEM. ;)

Also! Good news! Go On was actually up in viewers and the demo this week. By a lot. So if it keeps that up, it'll be safe. THANKFULLY. Aside from this show and Elementary (and maybe Nashville once I watch the pilot), none of the other new shows are interesting me.

Sleeeeeeeep. <3

OMG, do not even JOKE about stopping writing about Donna/Harvey or Suits fic!!

Ummm, I can't tell you whether SEXY!TIME vs DELICIOUS UST. Mind boggles - both are equally awesome and we don't want the fic to end!

I do vote for Harvey to stay in the tuxedo (although I would NEVER say no to Harvey in white tie like this *grin* perhaps at a state dinner?) and it's definitely up Harvey to respond to Donna's first move.

Ah! Hahaha. DAYS late, but I figured out how to unspam the comment! LJ, WHY U SO WEIRD?

I LOVE Go On! I'm so attached to everybody already, but particularly Ryan, Anne, and Carrie. Is it in danger already?

I need to catch up on your fic, and then I shall come back to vote. :)
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: October 12th, 2012 12:00 am (UTC) (Link)
SAME. Each week I just fall in love with the show even more. It's such a beautiful blend of funny, sweet, quirky and even sadness. Plus, yes to all the characters you mentioned! And how hilarious is Sonia? She is fast becoming a new favorite of mine, too. But I misspoke - I knew it was sort of riding the middle of the pack, but apparently this week it shot up in the ratings and put it above the danger line, so I'm hoping that continues. Wondering if maybe word of mouth is having an impact?

And hee. Also YES. I need help! :D

Umm, okay, my previous comment was marked as spam, but I'm sure you'll see it.

Anyway, somehow the whole white tie / tuxedo thing made me wonder if Donna and Rene ever conspire? While Harvey clearly picks his clothes and dresses himself, you know that Donna must have some influence (even if a hated tie gets "lost" by the dry cleaner or "accidentally" spilled on).

Must try Go On...

Heh, that's so random. But I saw it in e-mail, and WHITE TIE COMMENT FTW.

Oh, and Donna and Rene absolutely conspire. I can just imagine Donna and Harvey at lunch, and they swing by Rene's quickly to check out the fall line because they're close by the shop, and of course Donna suggests it because she knows Harvey usually has great taste but sometimes he gets fixated on something weird and she saw that three-piece suits were back and knows he always struggles when there are too many elements at play. And Rene and Donna will strategically stand with Harvey between so she can make her "no" face at Rene when Harvey has his back turned and is heading into the disaster zone. ;)

And yes! It's such a lovely show - well written with a crazy cast, and a beautiful balance of the funny and sweet.

I've just gotten into Suits and Donna/Harvey so I've just read through all the fics (I know I'm a completely random person commenting in your journal) and my God, so many high quality fics. I love your series(ish)! I'd like there to be RST eventually but I can definitely handle some more UST.
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: October 12th, 2012 12:15 am (UTC) (Link)
WELCOME! There are not nearly enough D/H folks on my flist (*EYES FLIST*) or really, partaking in the online fandom in general right now. THE MORE THE MERRIER. (And thank you!! Glad you're enjoying. *grins*)

Also, AWESOME. I had another UST idea, but wasn't sure if people were getting tired of that and ready for something different. This helps!
abvj From: abvj Date: October 12th, 2012 12:41 am (UTC) (Link)

Are you sticking to Harvey's POV for the entire series or do you think you'll alternate? I think UST is fine as long as you are slowly building... and, let's face it, these two have been dancing around this for how long now? They thrive on UST so it's only natural. Besides, I really like the slow burn you've created inside of Harvey's POV - mostly because I find good Harvey POV so hard to find. But I mean it when I say I'll take anything.

I'm ruminating on what you replied to my comment with @ my journal. Expect a rant this weekend. And possibly more fic!

I'm not sure? It was unintentional to have both part one and two be from Harvey's POV, so I'm not opposed to switching it up. But I think it'll depend on how much each part becomes something somewhat related, or if each part is really a stand alone fic that just happens to be part of a formal wear universe. I dunno. :/ What do you think is lacking in fandom/interesting to see explored? Keep it all with Harvey and make the series more like a chaptered fic? Or let each part be its own thing - whether a UST moment, an AU fic, RST, told from whomever's perspective - and just keep each one tied to a "formal wear" scenario?

I am so behind on your fic, but FORMAL WEAR. FORMAL WEAR.

(You should have something about the Natural History Museum for old time's sake.)

phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: October 12th, 2012 06:59 am (UTC) (Link)
You had all sorts of internet and landlord problems. I forgive you. ;) *HUGS*


I MISS YOU TOO! And I fail at comm moderating this hiatus. I have IDEAS. And lack the ability to follow through. SOON IT WILL BE JANUARY AND I WILL BE LIKE, WAIT WHERE DID ALL THE TIME GO FOR ALL THE D/H HIATUS THINGS?!

I LOVE GO ON!! Unfortunately I do not contribute to ratings. BUT IT IS AWESOME.
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: October 13th, 2012 06:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
YAY!!! And ISN'T IT THOUGH? It's very funny, and much more tender than I expected, and I just keep finding more love for this quirky cast of characters. It's definitely my favorite new show of the season.
eveningdreamer From: eveningdreamer Date: October 13th, 2012 03:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
I will start watching Go On! ;) Not that my Canadian watching will matter. But still, so much love for Matthew Perry!
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: October 13th, 2012 06:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
You should! It's really delightful - funny and sweet, and the writing is fresh and smart. Aside from Go On, the only other new show I'd recommend would be Elementary if the two episodes that have aired are any indication. Sadly, I'm finding pretty much everything else to be lacking.

I'm just a completely random person commenting on your journal because the giant and shining poll that says FORMAL WEAR lured me in. I love the formal wear. I cannot get enough of it, and although I just always want Donna and Harvey to rip the formal wear off one another, I love Harvey's point of view so far and am dying to see how it continues, at least for a while...? It's just so good and I love this ship so damn much it's hard to not be selfish and just grin at you until you break and let us all roll around in really well written fic from Harvey's POV, which is a terror to find and hard to write (mostly because I'm lazy and afraid to tarnish the ship that is made of witty banter). So.... I'm all for more of Harvey ruminating on their situation in a tux and trying not to explode from all the feelings. :)
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: October 14th, 2012 05:18 am (UTC) (Link)
No, you are SO welcome! COME PLAY WITH ME! I'm unable to stop thinking about Donna and Harvey in formal wear scenarios apparently, so it's really nice to know that people are reading the fics and I'm not alone in crazy land over here stuck obsessing on a formal wear writing tangent while everyone else looks on in horror.

Completely appreciate the comments too, and I'm blushing, honestly, at the nice things you said (not to mention the comments you left on the fic-a-thon. I'm all aflutter). The Harvey POV and UST thing been echoed a few times too, so as long as my brain cooperates, I think that'll be the plan! <3
