Five Things That Never Happened To Fernando Morientes
the remains of the day
acchikocchi: (misc // kachoufuugetsu)
so I wrote this like... two years ago? but could never get the final scene to my liking. then I rediscovered it a couple days ago and thought "hey, this isn't bad," and then yesterday happened (or didn't happen, as allegiances dictate). any resemblance to actual commercial organizations living or dead is of course a complete coincidence.

(Is there anyone who still prefers the livejournal layout for reading? I can crosspost if necessary, I'm just lazy these days.)

Truth in Advertising
Cristiano Ronaldo/Kaká
3345 words

One week to finalize a whole campaign pitch, the entirety of which will be centered around this sixty second television spot that is, currently, a blank document. Cris is so fucked. (AU)

it has come to my attention that I have been letting down my end on the chatfic posting front. meaning it's time for the return of...

Late Night AU Theater, part 3245721

with your hosts, [livejournal.com profile] nahco3 and [livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi

tonight we introduce the first installment of our landmark series, Hookers That Sleep With Professors. (stay tuned long enough and you'll catch the tennis special, starring David Ferrer and Janko Tipsarevic. OH YOU THINK I'M KIDDING.) despite the fact that this chat occurred nearly a year ago the general concept has provided HOURS OF AMUSEMENT since. it is also very long. don't say I didn't warn you.

[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: now that my mind is on the subject
i would like to read some alvaro/raul that i did not write
[livejournal.com profile] nahco3: I feel you completely
but like what if it caught on
and then in a year there would be fic
where Raul was a heroin addicted hooker
and Alvaro was a professor
you would regret it
[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: chokes
oh my god
but i would also probably skim it out of morbid curiosity
to see just how you could DO that
[livejournal.com profile] nahco3: ok if I wrote you Alvaro/Raul
maybe Raul would not have a heroin addiction
[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: SO JUST A HOOKER THEN
he would be such a cheerful one though
actually that would be kind of hilarious


in summary:
[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: how the hell did i end up telling a story about raul albiol as a hooker, anyway
[livejournal.com profile] nahco3: um
I made up
[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: i think this is your fault.
[livejournal.com profile] nahco3: a badfic summary?
so not my fault here
[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: i'd like to blame you anyway
are you sure it's not
it would just be convenient.
[livejournal.com profile] nahco3: I am DV
ok, I called the hooker
but you are Alvaro
acchikocchi: (Default)
three posts in one week?? I know, right, what is even happening. but don't get too excited, this one is just valuable links for you.

1. [livejournal.com profile] footballhetfest is a new thing! a thing that opened yesterday and is just what it sounds like. if you're feeling inspired by the amazing Olympic women's football you can write about the amazing players of the national team of your choice, or you can also write about, say, how super great David Villa's wife is. oh wait that's what I'm doing. possibly more than once since writing that sentence gave me yet another idea. excellent.

2. if you are not in fandom and have found yourself thinking, gosh, Mer usually has such impeccable taste, I don't really get why she writes about that Cristiano Ronaldo creature in a remotely sympathetic way, you should definitely check out [livejournal.com profile] yeats & [livejournal.com profile] dorkorific's comprehensive guide to CRon, Kaka, and their deep and abiding true love. plus if you familiarize yourself with it you will be prepared to read some really excellent fic. (see me for details.)
acchikocchi: (spirited away // at sea)
notes on this story and women's football )

Here's a handful of resources on Spanish women's football for anyone interested:
futfem.com - the place to go for league and NT news/info. (es)
Podemos Jugar - think From A Left Wing, but in Spanish. (es)
Nosotras - Women's sports coverage at AS. Isabel Roldán reports on the Primera Division as well as a fair amount on the national team and women in football at large (e.g. as directors). I've also seen Maite Martín's byline on several articles. (es)
From A Left Wing's Jennifer Doyle on the Spanish WNT, with a pretty convincing hypothesis for exactly why there is such a difference between the junior and senior teams, including a short interview with Laura del Rio. (en)
Interview with Veronica Boquete, touching on several of the above issues. (en)
FIFA write up of a national community side tournament, focusing especially on the players' families.

notes on the actual writing, and original characters )
acchikocchi: (footie // number thirteen)
Writing up the notes for the Zaida story right now. (Thank you so much to everyone who's commented, I hardly even know how to respond. I just, I really appreciate it.) I did most of the initial research last winter/spring and I wanted to share some of the things I came across in the process. This is an interview from AS, via the fantastic website futfem.com, with Maria (Mery) Ruiz, the first (female) Spanish player to reach the quarterfinals of the Champions' League. The last few lines are pretty heartbreaking, especially for Madridistas.

Original Spanish here. Translation by yours truly, all corrections welcomed.

Her story bears a certainly similarity to that of Raul. Maria Ruiz, known to most as Mery, is a Madrileña by birth (06/13/1983), a Madridista by heart, and a striker by position. Last season she made the decision to leave Espanyol, just proclaimed champions of the Copa de la Reina, to play for Zvezda 2005 in the Russian league.

I was hoping to finish this before the year was out, but the last two hundred words just wouldn't come out right until today. I'm pretty sure there's an audience of probably about three people out there for gen second-generation futurefic, but this fic has come to mean a lot to me, and I think it's one of the better things I've written, so.

Thanks as always to [livejournal.com profile] nahco3 for betaing, hand-holding, and the canon I stole from her own fic. Spoilery notes here.

Due to timing of the new job I actually had to default on Yuletide (i.e. not because of procrastination, for a wonder XD;) which was disappointing as I loved my assignment and it would have been a nice opportunity to significantly expand my writing horizons. Since it was pretty much out of my hands, though, I felt fairly sanguine about everything until I read my gift fic, which was wonderful. [livejournal.com profile] pun wrote for A Suitable Boy Any Given Dream, the Firoz post-novel coda of my heart, and I was overcome with default guilt and had to go write a Madness ficlet in the last few hours before the collection closed. ._.

Thus the following, which is extremely silly. [livejournal.com profile] mimsicality gave me the original prompt following a viewing of the RM Christmas message videos and I pretty much did everything but sign my name to it -- the comments of "ALVARO" were a good indicator I was following customary patterns. XD So I'm guessing the recipient/everyone else had that figured out, but just in case, a belated Happy Boxing Day, [livejournal.com profile] yeats. :)

Thanks for the prompts the other day, am working on them! (You can still leave one if you want, for that matter.) In the mean time, Cris/Leo that I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] nahco3 for a prompt a while ago. It would probably fit somewhere along the timeline before the elopement fic if you wanted it to.


In which Cris knows how to deal with overprotective teammates )

this was intended for [livejournal.com profile] nahco3 from the beginning, but it's finally finished for a particular reason. happy birthday to my favorite writer, cheerleader, tinhat, chat buddy, Diego Maradona biographer, AU plotter, filthy enabler, polar bear tamer, and all-around partner in crime. ♥ ♥ ♥

Abort, Retry, Fail
Word Count: 16,500
Pairing: David Villa/David Silva, others implied
Rating: R
Notes: We've all read [livejournal.com profile] guede_mazaka's Magverse, right? We know the idea of HBIC Luis Figo overseeing a horde of foxes Spaniards didn't originate with me, right? Okay. Just making sure.

Summary: In which FC Barcelona are a department of misfit programmers, Figo's in charge, Xavi has a lot of Ideas, Bojan might or might not be an intern, David Silva's just trying to help where he can, and David Villa is completely clueless. Romcom-style AU.

Sooooo! Here is some more of this fic. Like five months later... yeah. Half of that delay was expected and due to RL changes; half of it was, um, not. That second half would still be going on if it weren't for the UNENDING patience of [livejournal.com profile] nahco3 in listening to a pretty constant stream of moping, complaints, and pleas for help, so (as if this needs to be said), a million thanks and a polar bear. ♥

In this part: backstory, brooding, more Germans (remember them?), some actual plot developments!

acchikocchi: (footie // mou's got this)
[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: it's like Leo and Cris are eloping.
[livejournal.com profile] nahco3: DO NOT GIVE ME IDEAS.

How this ended up with me writing about them getting married in a ceremony officiated by Mourinho? If ONLY I KNEW. This is essentially cleaned up commentfic so, uh, maybe don't expect a lot of deep character analysis here. Other than how this is of course symbolic of how I would like all the Clasico drama to be cleared up.

Nice Day (For A White Wedding)
Pairing: Leo Messi/Cristiano Ronaldo; others heavily implied. Appearances by the majority of Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Word Count: 7800
Rating: PG
Notes: Crack. Utter crack. Humor at the expense of everyone involved. Edited for rampant italics and other problems by [livejournal.com profile] nahco3, which is only fair since it's her fault. Title after the song, natch.

Summary: Leo's the one eloping with Cristiano Ronaldo, so why is it up to Cesc to make sure nothing goes wrong? And what kind of elopement has an afterparty, anyway?

it's a nice day to start again )
acchikocchi: (footie // qué?)
(Sorry for letting posts go uncommented or comments unanswered over the last few days, this is the reason why. Was determined to get it off my back by the first of the month, which I didn't quite manage, but close enough!)

So this is a) how I Stockholm Syndrome'd myself into shipping this pairing (PLEASE JOIN ME) and b) the most explicit thing I have written in, like, five years, and it's not even that explicit. Or as I call it, "look, I wrote something that isn't about David Silva!"

........though he's in it. like you were expecting anything else.

Acknowledgements (lol): This fic owes its entire existence to the encouragement and enthusiastic co-shipping of [livejournal.com profile] nahco3, who then also edited like a champion. The check-ins for [livejournal.com profile] distira's WIP amnesty challenge helped it along past several hurdles, even though -- obviously -- I didn't exactly finish it within the parameters of the challenge. Subtitle after, yes, the Moldy Peaches song. It fit.

The Nature of Humanity and Badass Spaceships (Anyone Else But You)
Pairing: Raúl Albiol/Álvaro Arbeloa (past Raúl Albiol/David Silva)
Word Count: 11,300
Rating: somewhere between R and NC-17
Notes: Set during the 2010-2011 season. Any mistakes are my own.

The thing was, Álvaro had kind of made a point of never sleeping with teammates, just to be on the safe side — he'd seen that go wrong and it wasn't pretty. But Raúl was different: he was Álvaro's friend first.  )
acchikocchi: (footie // my very favorite)
Recent comment exchange with [livejournal.com profile] rondaview re: David Silva prodded me to come back to this post I meant to make uh in May. the main thesis: David Silva Is Very Attractive, as illustrated by (mostly) recent pictures. Recent because I assume all interested parties have the older i.e. Valencia-era stuff; if that is not the case I am happy to make a second post. Also because he has been especially good-looking lately.

Needless to say, image heavy. Excuse the occasional tumblr user watermarks.

if you see what i mean )

mer, it has now been over a year since you got so obsessed with this person. do you see that abating any time soon?

acchikocchi: (footie // chibi villa will still cut you)
I have a million things I need to post about, so obviously instead of doing that I am going to post this rambling and frankly insane BRILLIANT full cast AU outline, courtesy of a chat with [livejournal.com profile] nahco3, because it needs to be saved for posterity. I really have no explanation for this. I will just say that the highlight is probably the part where Barca is staffing the New Yorker and leave it at that. edited to add: ALSO IT'S VERY LONG. don't say I didn't warn you.

Edited to cut down on keysmashing, capslock agreement with every line, etc., though some of that is left in for atmosphere. XD

Pairings: in order, Stevie/Xabi, Ramos/Torres, DV/DS, Bojan-->Pep, Pep/Mou, CRon/Leo, Xavi/Iniesta. I think that's all of them. Plus a supporting cast of thousands.

Okay, so. This is all started so innocuously, with this picture...

[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: he looks so puzzled.
[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: (which is admittedly par for the course, but.)
[livejournal.com profile] nahco3: maybe he was trying to impress
[livejournal.com profile] nahco3: f torres
[livejournal.com profile] nahco3: the hot caddy
[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: i think impressing f.torres the hot caddy is the only reason he would be golfing
[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: backwards baseball cap and all.
[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: okay come to think of it
[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: recently xabi was tweeting something about golfing
[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: so clearly this is one of those complicated stevie/xabi sergio/fernando AUs
[livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi: you know the type i mean
famous last words )

this has been tonight's installment of Late Night AU Theater. tune in next time for more with your hosts [livejournal.com profile] acchikocchi and [livejournal.com profile] nahco3 and their undying fondness for every trope ever written. thank you and good night.

[livejournal.com profile] nahco3 posted hers, so I'm doing the same. :) background information: this is based off a brainstorming session inspired by the universe of [livejournal.com profile] meretricula's fabulous soulbonding fic the best luck I had was you. the angsty Raul/Mori backstory scenario is outlined here and here in particular.

as for this ficlet, the game in question was played 23 March 2008 and went pretty much as described here. the television footage tragically didn't focus on the right players after the match, but fortunately right-minded internet people were on hand with cameras.

and [livejournal.com profile] nahco3's DV/DS ficlet that she wrote for meeeee is here. :D

Raul/Mori, 850 words. other pairings predictably implied.

the remains of the day )
acchikocchi: (footie // cesc!)
So it's only been two and a half months, no big deal... Sorry. :( Anyway, this brings it up to a solid 47k overall, i.e. officially the longest thing I have ever written in my life. I think this is probably the halfway point? Probably. (oh god.) Anyway, a big, big thank you to [livejournal.com profile] winterspel for a steady stream of RL encouragement and discussion.

In this part: car chases, inter-agency conflict, feelings(tm), a surprise.

Next part of spyfic soon, I promise, it's been almost done for like a week now (argh). In the meantime, here's something that's actually finished, whoa. Possible subtitle: Cheap tricks in emotional manipulation, or, Angst means you're my favorite.

I don't usually post notes with my fic, but the first two parts won't make much sense unless you're familiar with the events of the 2002 transfer window, in which Real Madrid attempted to sell Morientes to Barcelona against his will as part of a three-way deal for Ronaldo the first. (more.) Everything else should be relatively straightforward.
