Title: give me a chance (to prove it to you)
Author: Spikedluv
Fandom: Shelter
Rating: PG13/Slash
Pairing: Zach/Shaun, Cody
Length: 8871 words
Spoilers: For entire movie to be safe.
Summary: Six months after Shaun moved out of their apartment he gets a call from the hospital that Zach’s been in an accident.
Notes: Some angst with a happy ending. Written for the 15th round of [livejournal.com profile] smallfandomfest for the prompt: Shelter, Zach/Shaun, Zach and Shaun have broken up, but Shaun gets called when Zach’s in an accident because Zach never removed him as his emergency contact (happy ending preferred). Also written for the 3rd round of trope_bingo for the prompt: in vino veritas/drunkfic. (Zach is on drugs rather than drunk, but I’m calling it even.) Title taken from Kris Allen’s ‘Prove It To You’.
Feedback: Would be appreciated.
Disclaimer: These characters do not belong to me and no profit is being made.

W00t! Subject lines are back!!! (Even though they’re weirdly also showing up in the body of the comment.) To celebrate, we’re holding a comment!fic/art fest!

~Comment below with your prompts. (Prompts can be as vanilla or kinky as you want and can include AUs and fusions/crossovers so long as a Shelter character/pairing are the main focus.)

~Each prompt should be posted in a separate comment.

~While this community is centered around Zach/Shaun, your prompts may be about any of the characters central to the movie. (Please do not prompt for Zach/Other or Shaun/Other unless it’s leading up to a Zach/Shaun resolution.)

~Include the character/pairing and a brief description of the prompt in the subject line, and then include more detail in the body of the comment. Example:

Subject line: Zach/Shaun, AU!meeting (Tattoo Artist)
Body: Zach is a tattoo artist; Gabe talks Shaun into getting some ink from his new friend Zach

~Fills may consist of any type of fanwork: fic, graphics, vids, etc

~Fills should be posted as a reply to the prompt comment.

~~Optionally, fills may be posted directly to the community but you should reply to the original prompt with the link so the person who submitted the prompt knows it’s been filled. (This is different from most comment!fic memes, I know, but we’re a small fandom and there are only a few comms to announce fanworks at, so I’m making this exception.)

~~If posting directly to the community, please include the prompt you’ve filled in your header and, if you tag your own posts, include the ‘{challenge} comment!fic/art’ tag.

Now, let's get to prompting! *g*

Title: Finding SHELTER
Author/Artist: islandgirl_246
Pairing/Characters: Shaun, Gabe, Zach
Rating/Genre: R for language and some intimacy.
Notes/Warnings: ***A fanfic prequel to the movie Shelter (2007). The backstory to Shaun and Zach…***
Shaun is a soon-to-be-published author, trying to finish his first book, which seems to be causing a rift with his partner, Rick. Rick would rather him do something else, like become an English professor. Even as Shaun struggles with his book, he's struggling with something else, memories of a certain lad back home, whom he can't seem to get out of his head, especially as every time he turns around someone reminds him that Zach is out there. Will his relationship survive the struggle or will his seeming unrequited feelings for Zach jeopardise what he's working towards?


-----

Shaun was tired. He’d had another of those pointless fights with Rick about his writing. How could you love someone yet not understand them? Sometimes he felt that Rick just didn’t get him; didn’t understand that he had to write. It wasn’t a job, a choice, it wasn’t a hobby. It was his fucking life.

He had two months to complete the book and get it to his publisher to make his deadline and avoid any penalties stemming from the advance that he’d been given to produce it, publisher-ready, by the deadline. So what if it meant that he had to lock himself away in the study and not break for a damn party he didn’t want to attend anyway? Why did Rick not understand that going to a Saturday night dinner party that was contrived by his rich circle of friends for no other reason than that it was Saturday night and they were bored, could not take precedence over his writing? Not now.

His phone rang and he checked the caller ID before he flicked it open. It was Gabe, and even before he said hello, a smile was already forming on his lips. His brother, as annoying as he could be at times, sometimes had perfect timing.
“Hey bro, how’s my favourite fag?”

Read more... )
PS: I wrote this because I was trying forever to find a fanfic of how it started – the obvious attraction that Shaun felt for Zach even before his return to the coast. Zach in his break-up argument near the end of the movie had told Shaun he was sick of “being your childhood wet-dreams” and he should find another fantasy, which more than hinted that he’d known Shaun was gay and had more than an inkling that Shaun had feelings for him. Shaun for his part earlier told Zach – "I didn't know you knew about me". I wanted to explore that in this piece of writing. I hope I did it justice and hope others will enjoy.

In Shelter-adjacent news, I've been reading articles and interviews relating to Steve Grand, a relatively unknown singer/songwriter from Chicago, who posted a music video for his original song "All-American Boy" to youtube a couple days ago, and which as already received over 871,500 hits -- if you haven't watched the vid, I highly recommend it!

All-American Boy )

The reason I'm making this post (aka, the relevance to our interests) is because of this article:

Steve Grand's 'All-American Boy' And Country Music's Views On The LGBT Community

From which I learned this:

8 of 20: Shane McAnally: The Gay Country Songwriter

Shane McAnally, who co-wrote most of the songs on Kacey Musgrave's debut album, is the rare Nashville creature: an out country songwriter.

While his name might not sound familiar, you've definitely heard one of his songs if you listen to country music. Writing hundreds of songs a year, McAnally has written or co-written hits for The Band Perry, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson and for the TV series "Nashville" (he also recorded songs for the gay film, "Shelter," under the name Shane Mack).

When interviewed by the New York Times in May 2013, McAnally said that his success came when he came out: “My career really took off when I came out. When I stopped hiding who I am, I started writing hits.”


I seriously had no idea! Some (most?) of you probably already know this, but if you, like me, didn't, then, here, I guess. *g*

So I figured after reading everyone's wonderful stories, I'd give it a shot to write one of mine. Anyone have any suggestions on where to get help with editing. I don't think my husband would feel comfortable fielding this one, and he's usually my "go to guy" for grammar.

Welcome to the Shelter Extravaganza!!! Drabble Tree!

Photobucket


For those of you who have never participated in a Drabble Tree before, and as a refresher for those who have . . .

The Rules:

1. Your drabble should revolve around characters from the movie Shelter, but any character/pairing, genre, and rating are allowed.
2. All drabbles should be between 100-300 words long.
3. All drabbles must be posted as a comment to this post.
4. Choose a word, phrase or line from any previous drabble and reply to that drabble in the comments (thereby creating the tree effect).
5. Bold the text you’re ‘sharing’ with another drabble.
6. As a kindness to our readers, please include the following in your subject line: Character/Pairing and Rating. (If you use a journal style that does not allow for subject lines, then please include this information as the first line in your comment.)
7. The Drabble Tree will be open for the entire Extravaganza!!! period, from today through Wednesday, May 16, so please keep coming back to check it out!
8. Do not feedback on the drabbles here as that screws up the tree effect.
9. Have fun! *g*



A drabble to start us off - Zach/Shaun, PG13:

Zach stretched, the sun shining through the open window warming his old bones. Not that he would admit to getting older. Zach rolled over, his body instinctively finding Shaun’s. When he opened his eyes, Shaun was watching him with a fond smile.

“How long have you been awake?”

“Not long,” Shaun said. “You wore me out earlier.”

Zach wrapped an arm around Shaun’s shoulder, threw a leg over both of Shaun’s. “Feel like getting worn out some more?” he asked, voice going husky at the mere thought of having Shaun under him, inside him, all around him.

Shaun slid his hand up Zach’s back. “You have the best ideas.”

A loud crash from the living room was followed by Cody’s voice calling, “We’re fine! Nothing broke!”

Zach giggled into Shaun’s shoulder, and Shaun had to bury his face in Zach’s neck to hide his own laughter. When they drew back, though, there were tears shining in both their eyes.

“Did you think this would ever happen?” Zach whispered to Shaun, his fingers playing with the hair Shaun had grown out, even though there were traces of gray in it. “That we’d be together this long. That we’d still be so happy.”

Shaun studied Zach’s face. He pressed a kiss to Zach’s lips and then lay his forehead against Zach’s. Shaun simply said, “Yes.”

Before Zach could respond the way he wanted to, the door was thrown open. “Grandpa, Papa! Daddy says it’s time for you to get up!”

“We’re hungry!” a second voice chimed in.

Two little boys with pointy knees climbed onto the bed and over Zach and Shaun.

Zach glanced at the doorway, where Cody stood smirking at them. “Yeah, Grandpa, Papa, we’re hungry.”

Zach looked at Shaun over their grandsons' heads, and they shared a happy smile.



Now it’s your turn! Please, join us, and spread the love. *g*
