shadowhunters. simon lewis/raphael santiago.
7.5k. classic hollywood AU. ao3 link.

summary: When Simon went out to Hollywood, he told his mother that he got an accounting job on a studio lot, doing the numbers on costumes and sets. Instead he pretended to play whatever instrument they asked him to in the background of Paramount's latest, Hotel Dumort. That was where he met Raphael.

oh I was moved by your screen dream )
margotttenenbaum: (Gretchen&Jimmy)
Here are the fics I wrote for Yuletide this year! Someone explain to me how I have written THREE fics featuring James Dean when I do not even really like him. Also somehow all of these fics feature dancing. Their only thematic link tbh.

this is going swell. you're the worst. gretchen, lindsay, becca. pre-series, set in high school.
It's not that Gretchen and Lindsay are friends. Gretchen has friends, other girls with edgy haircuts who go to raves with her over the weekend. But Lindsay keeps her company when she cuts class and always has the good snacks in her bag, so Gretchen figures they can be co-workers for now.

lo sparo a te (bang bang). the man from u.n.c.l.e. gaby/napoleon.
The thing was, Solo could dance.

c'est si bon. classic hollywood rpf. eartha kitt/james dean/paul newman.
"I want to move like you," he says. "Can you teach me how to move my body like you do on stage?"

Requested by [ profile] bond_girl. I thought this would be way harder to put together - I mean, putting together a fanmix for such a favorite/iconic movie seemed kind of impossible. But surprisingly it came together very easily. I tried to stick to music from the 50s/early 60s, with some earlier stuff. I really didn't purposefully pick so many songs that have to do with walking in the rain - I'm just going to assume that was the number one activity of sixties pop stars.

I don't want to put you in a cage, I want to love you! )
margotttenenbaum: (Blair; femme fatale)
 Why can't I stop comparing things to Gossip Girl?! I have another GG/something else picspam comparison idea but I'm holding off because seriously, can I please have other ideas? Nevertheless, I think this is my favorite picspam so far. It was really fun to do.
