Believe it or not, I actually wrote something. And finished it. And here it is...

Waiting for the Fall
A Nashville fan fiction

By Cappuccino Girl

Notes: Just your standard Rayna/Deacon, Rayna/Liam, songs-about-Rayna affair. Written post episode 14 [Dear Brother]. In case you feel the need to track down the song quoted toward the end of story below, you can listen to it here. If you like it, I recommend supporting the artist by buying it from your favourite digital music provider. Or get it on vinyl. It really does sound better, I promise.




THE LEAVES WERE TURNING from red to muddy brown, and neighborhood kids were walking home from school. Sun-soaked concerts were a fading memory, and for the first time in a long while, she had no album to record or promote.  Inside her house, the mess of the last intervention was still on the kitchen floor. At the fifth try, she really should have managed it better, choreographed the perfect last straw. Instead, it was one week later and tiny shards of broken china still crunched on the tiles. There in the living room, his notes were strewn on the piano, whiskey-stained and torn, songs she’ll never have the heart to record, royalty checks he won’t be able to drink or snort up his nose.

EMPTY ROOMS

A Nurse Jackie fan-fiction
by Cappuccino Girl

Disclaimer: Not mine. Don’t sue.
Notes: Takes place after the end of season three. For Z & N, with all my love.


She shredded the Sotheby’s auction catalogue this afternoon. What else was she supposed to do with it? Pop it on the coffee table? Sell it on eBay? Save it for the children she’ll never have? So she cracked opened a bottle of wine at just-gone midday instead, and made the triggers of her childhood disappear. Just like that.

So here I am, drinking iced coffee on Sunset before heading to the airport. The sun is shining, and the guys next to me are discussing their sex playlists ( one features Star Wars). This place has grown on me so much. I'm really going to miss it, especially the delightful soaked_in_stars.

When I get back, there will be all manner of life decisions to make, what with the never ending string of job rejectiins I've received ( one on my birthday, no less). But for now, the sun is shining and I am still here.

Crazy fucking afternoon. I drove to Melrose with three of the people who are staying here. Aside from my initial 'omfg Melrose!!!' reaction, it was really relaxing yet entertaing afternoon. We browsed the shops, avoided stalkerazzi chasing Miley Cyrus and a Jonas brother, and played fancy dress in thrift stores. By the time it was 7pm, we decided to head back. I wanted to stop at Trader Joe's so I could get mac & cheese to bring back for S. At the same shopping complex was a Pinkberry, which I really wanted to try. The guys I was with spotted Milla Cunis in the queue behind us. I wandered towards the car.... and then waited fucking ages because they ended up chatting with her and they took a photo with her. Just the whole concept makes me uncomfortable, so I'm really glad I left. But my day was awesome. And i have cookies. Tomorrow, more fun times with Clr. There may be beach involved. La di da. La di da.

After sleeping until 11 this morning ( suck it, jet lag!) I eventually made my way out of the house. I even figured out filling up the car with petrol ( you pay before you fill, how crazy is that?!), and then made my way to the so- called hipster enclaves of Silver Lake and Echo Park. As a european, I honestly don't understand the concept of 'hipsters'. At all. Hell, all I know about Echo Park is that Warren Zevon & Linda Ronstadt had some high times there in Carmelita. But yeah, back to 'hipsters'. I'd say the dress sense here is 3 times better than anywhere else i've been so far. I'm also guessing most people here veer towards creative jobs? Yes, I am genuinely confused. I am also currently sitting in a cafe right out of Belleville ( the quartier in Paris), so that might account for some of it. I give up. This part of the city is totally cool.

Am meeting Clr and friend for B-day dinner tonight. The place is called Elf. I am assuming gnomes and leprechauns are optional.

Thanks for all the lovely b-day wishes on my FB, everyone. *bissous!*

So here I am in Los Ageles, sitting outside having my morning coffee and cigarette and i'm not wearing a jacket because it's warm. Driving to where i'm staying last night frightened the hell out of me. 5 lane freeways?! I can't even handle 3 lane ones when i'm driving in England. Plus here my car is big and everything is on the other side. Need to nut up for the next few days until i get used to it all, i think. And avoid having an accident. But the road signs say things like Sunset Blvd and Laurel Canyon and it's all a little trippy.

Meeting Clr for breakfast this morning and then who knows. I'm thinking WeHo or beach. La di da.

How great is it when spring finally shows up and you can put your wooly jumpers and winter coats into boxes?

Here's what's inspiring me in the fashion department at the moment.Collapse )
