Damn, I don't have a cab icon.

Anyway. Fic! Scribbled out at a breakneck speed over the course of a month--what? It's fast for me, okay. And alright, I know that everyone's probably tired of my high school au 'verse, but this is the last one! I swear! (I mean, really. There aren't any more peripheral characters that I can take out and torture.)

The rest of the stories in the 'verse don't really need to be read in order to understand this one, but it would probably be very helpful.

Title: Bad Tattoos and Worse Ideas (Or: How Two Faily Lunch Helpers Fumbled Their Way Together)
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Cash/Singer, background Johnson/Ian, background Brendon/Ryan
Word Count: ~17000
Warnings: Swearing. Excessive fail, although that kind of goes unsaid when the Cab are involved. (I feel like I should warn for superfluous mention of Barbie’s boobs and the song Stacy’s Mom.)
Thanks to: [livejournal.com profile] chaoticallyclev, my fabulously fantastic beta whom I definitely don’t deserve. I should really take a page out of Gabe’s book and chain her in my basement so that she’ll never leave me.
Author’s Notes: You don’t have to read the other stories to understand this one—although it would be helpful!—but this is yet another installment in my high school ‘verse, which can be found under this tag. (Takes place during about the same timeline as Swear To Shake It Up.
Summary: Alex likes Cash who likes Brendon who likes Ryan, only it’s kind of complicated. Which Alex thinks it really doesn’t need to be, if Cash would just pull his head out of his ass. So he needs a plan, only that is complicated, and Marshall’s even started pulling out the flowcharts. Basically, it’s a mess, but hey—it’s high school.

Thursday is pizza day. )

  So, I've been perusing the cabfic community, and there's a (surprisingly) large amount of good fic on there! :D I actually don't know much about the Cab except that they are adorable and seem to fail a lot. Which sounds perfectly awesome to me. \o/ Although Singer's hair kind of squicks me.

A few of my favorites so far:

Marshall/Ian (with bonus Marshall/Gabe, Cash/Marshall, Singer/Marshall, Johnson/Marshall)
A really pleasantly plotty genderfuck starring Alex Marshall, who tbh looks a lot like a girl already. So, yay: not much stretch of the imagination required! Well-written, with a wonderfully schmoopy ending. :) Snippet: "And I am now a girl," Marshall says slowly. He makes a face. "Well, kind of. Sort of. Physically, anyway. Whatever."

Wow, this is so adorable. There are boypiles and hugging and comforting and teasing, and yeah. I really don't think there's a single thing about this story I would change. Great characterization, as well. I'm really starting to get into the Cab. Snippet: "This is so gay," Johnson says, but he's climbing over as well, slower and quieter than Ian and Cash, and he gets around to curl into Marshall's side.

HS au. This was incredibly funny and awesome! Alex is faily and awkward, and Cash is a douchebag (as Alex reiterates many times throughout the story). And the thing is, it works so well. Snippet: Christine grins, and maybe it's not entirely nice. "Right, so like, did you really make out with Cash the other night?"
