Wow - I am still capable of finishing a story!

Anytime Soon

Perry should never have made Harry go undercover, even if it was supposedly one of the easiest assignments ever. Nothing Harry is involved in ever stays easy. Plus, both Harry and Perry are so in denial that it can probably be seen from space. Harry/Harmony, Harry/Perry, minor dubcon btw Harry/OC. Same rating and behavior as the film (meaning gratuitous violence, h/c, language and kissing). FYI: the Avenues are a gang that have been present in Glassell Park since the 1950s. There’s your obligatory trivia for the day.


R, 18,000 words.

 
“My safe word is ‘fuck off‘,” Harry said.

“That’s a phrase, and it’s not that safe,” Perry said.

“You, Perry, are currently in possession of a fucking unicorn.” Made my night. Thank you. This was fabulous - a great story, touching and funny in the right places. And the ending!
there's a broken italics tag near the end, "He started yelling about how he was sorry about Matt but he didn’t have any choice.

“Even though I’d do anything for you,” Harry said, then his eyes went wide again in shock.

AUGH. That bit was perfection.

The whole thing was just so great, even if extreme h/c isn't always my thing, that I was honestly just going through a sequence of *heartclutch*, read a line, *heartclutch*, read a line, *heartclutch*, and on and on. KKBB is for me a perfect canon, and this fic is just lovely as all hell. The kiss is so well deserved by the time it arrives, and so enjoyable.

DEFINITELY. Whenever I'm sick, or drunk, or really any time I want to have a huge grin on my face, it's the film I pull off the shelf.

KKBB fic! Yay!

May Hapless Harry's good luck/bad luck never change -- it's such a defining part of his character.

I enjoyed the switch up on the POV -- instead of Harry's narration we got to climb into Perry's for a change. Fun.

Good job. I laughed, I winced, I wanted to feed them both cookies at the end.

You're writing again! Yay!

When Perry dragged him upright and out of the party, Harry was sporting the noticeable beginnings of a boner.
“You are one confused little monkey,” Perry said.
“Ficus,” Harry said immediately.
Heeeeeeeeee!

“You have the ass of a sixteen year old track star,” Perry said. Preach it, Perry.

Harry wandered aimlessly through the house, touching surfaces like they were something new and fascinating. Fingertips were brushed along walls, furniture, countertops. The look on his face was ecstatic wonder. He was obviously getting something out of every encounter, something that should have been ridiculous but managed to come off as sensual and evocative. He rubbed his face and most of his upper body along the back of the couch like a cat, eyes distant with some inner rapture.
Perry would take another bullet before saying so, but it was beautiful. Harry like that was beautiful. He felt a moment of self loathing for thinking so, even though it had little to do with Harry’s maleness. It had more to do with Harry’s Harryness. It was the penultimate version of the person who fished moths out of pools, who saved damsels in distress, who tried to breathe life back into near-strangers lying in the street. This was bad, this was the fucking worst scenario involving Harry that Perry could imagine, because Harry was damn near helpless when he was perfectly sane and sober, and suddenly he was wandering around Perry’s house ten times as helpless but also beautiful and begging to be touched.
Oh, boys. And the ending!

Oh, I just want to chuck Harry under the chin and tell him everything will be okay, sweet boy. Because he wants so much for people to see how amazing Harmony and Perry - and even Violet! - are, and he's so earnest about it.

So much fun!! Your Perry voice is peerless, and your Harry voice is even better. He really is the cutest bundle of cluelessness that never clued. And I totally get the bi/gay magnetism. He's cute, and they all want to be the first to teach him their tricks since he's so obviously brand new and shiny.

Some favorite moments: every time Harry says he'd do anything for Perry. Ficus. Jackanapes. Violet and Bunny. Harry-sized cat!! Flowers for Violet. Blushing! Unicorn. Harmony totally knows. :grins:

A couple of tiny things. Some of your contraction apostrophes are backwards. Yeah..I don't even know - A) how they do that, B) why I noticed, or C) why I kept looking for 'em. Also, penultimate means next to last. That's my favorite brain-o besides bussed for cleared tables or sent by bus when it actually means kissed - makes for hilarious mental pictures. :mentally pictures Dean bussing tables: :giggles: (again)

Thanks for the fabulous read!

ETA: I figured I should give an apostrophe example, and isn't it just typical that the one I chose isn't a contraction, but rather a possessive. Whatever! :) Here 'tis: Harry‘s voice took on an edge of panic.

>>He really is the cutest bundle of cluelessness that never clued.<<

LOL! That should have been on the DVD case. I love it.

The contraction apostrophes - bane of my existence. I cannot figure out why Microsoft Works does that. I usually catch them as I'm writing, and sometimes the conversion to html or htm at upload will fix most of it. UGH.

Aha! Good point! You can blame the 'bussed' problem on most folks who have worked in restaurants. It ruins your grammar for life. "I thought I told you to bus those tables." "Shut up, I already bussed those tables, you're blind." "You're the worst busser ever." XD

We all know Dean would kiss tables if it would embarass Sam...

\o/ I may have to type that up and stick it on the back of my copy.

I think Word/Works is out to get people. A bunch of opening quotation marks on the J2 I just beta read fell down, and sat at the bottom on the letter to their right. Weird!

Focused/focussed always gets me. I have to spell check every time.

AAAHHHAAAAA!!! And arrange for video, for later replays of the bitchface!

THIS. oh my please just write Harry and Perry forever! They are just so perfectly them - snarky yet vulnerable and totes in love ;D And such a wonderful balance of them fun and the OMG WHATS GOING TO HAPPEN. And seriously the description of Harry on E and coming down was just so spot on - OKAY I MAY HAVE STARED AT SHINY OBJECTS FOR AN HOUR WHEN I'M IN THAT STATE, but not just that - all of it rang so true.

anytime you want to write more of them will not be too soon ;D

I love these characters too much. And I will never ever admit how many times I've seen this movie, now. YES THANK YOU FOR CONFIRMING MY DOPED!HARRY; MY ONLY OTHER OPTION WAS TO TAKE E MYSELF. XD I live in the right area, but am far too awkward to be taken as anything but an undercover cop should I try to purchase anything.

I have another...21k words in the works for these two. omg. This is your fault for encouraging me...

I loved this so much. The story was by turns stunningly beautiful and amazingly funny. I love love love the way that Harry always misses the point of Perry's rants, but gets the rest, like how Harry keeps surprising Perry all the time, but Harry already has him figured out. That is, Harry figured out in a really clueless way, that Perry, whether Perry knows it or not is GOOD for him, while Perry still doesn't understand that. For someone so lost Harry really knows how to tune in to the important parts. All the things Perry never says.

I thought that the best line in this was when Perry reflect on Harry's amazing luck for someone so unlucky. It really sums the character up for me.

Also you're dialog is epic :)

Thank you so much for sharing this.

LOL I know - Harry only picks out the things he wants to hear while Perry is yelling at him, and it's almost always the semi-positive things. THAT is why they would be the most awesome couple ever.

This story is so snappily written and hugely entertaining, I wanted to ask you if you would be willing to give me permission to make a podfic of it. I'd be happy to send you it first for a preview, or just send you the link when it's done if that's what you'd prefer. I've always loved Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and film noir, and these stories of yours are just great. I stayed up way later than I should of last night to finish this story, laughing... I hope you are into this idea!

So, I've finished recording your marvelous, wickedly funny fic Anytime Soon, and here it is: http://www.mediafire.com/?0g8gjag8z1ee2
It would mean a ton to me if you wanted to listen to it and let me know what you think - I don't even know if you're into podfic, but I appreciate you letting me record this. It was a blast, loved it more reading it aloud, and I hope I did it justice! I will post it in a few days, but am happy to change anything if you think I missed the boat on anything. Thanks....

We rewatched KKBB over the weekend, and so of course I went in search of fic and reread the other stories you'd written. And then remembered that I hadn't had time to read this one before, so whee!

I love your Harry & Perry voices, and ultimately defenseless stony Perry is against the puppy-dog charms of Harry. It doesn't hurt that Harry looks like he does (!), but in the end it's his personality (every little usually irritating thing about it) that is Perry's kryptonite. \o/

This was spectacular. It made me laugh and wrenched my heart and so many other things. Please. Please tell me there's a follow up somewhere that I cant find that finally ends Perry's waiting? Because I just...your Harry clearly loves him. So much. Please?
