It’s been quite a while since I last updated and I am incredible sorry for that. But the current HJC show was just the oppurtunity I needed to pull myself back together and get more active. For those of you who are wondering when and if I will re-open a scrapbook over at ES I am sorry to disappoint you but I won’t. Well, at least not at the moment because I just don’t feel like having one and I couldn’t have it as active as I wish.
I am not 100% satisfied with the picture and there are definitiefly things I need to practise a lot more but I guess it’s worth enough to show the original as well because nonetheless I am pretty proud (after working on it for about 7 days now).
For those of you who are interested - This is Liebesglück’s first Traditional Show. She is quite an amazing horse. She just needed a couple of shows to gain herself some wonderful titles, both with the HJC as well as 2 Life Time Titles. We are very proud of her!
We hope for the best in this show though since we changed her rider to be Katja Baumgart from now on and she was never ridden by her except for some training rides at home. She was also nominated for the Inventional Show but we decided that this could be a bit too much for her first big appearence in the big arenas around the world.
We also decided that we give Bery a little rest since he did an amazing job in the last HJC show, placing 2nd. The best placing we had so far in Show Jumping. And with him just being 4 years old and also having 2 titles, he deserved his rest to gain some energy back.
Figured I’d do this and update it every so often if I remember to. This is gonna be a masterpost of all bits of writings I’ve done, both here and AO3, and topped with the donation link. For the stuff on here, follow the links OR check the ‘Josef writes’ tag every so often for my stuff :)
Q works as a DJ by night, and owns a motor-vehicle modification workshop by day. James owns the club Q works at, and several others as well. They flirt over shared snarks and Q takes James out for a ride.
“Want a lift?” Q asked casually, like he hadn’t brought an extra helmet for this opportunity specifically. James had been mocking Q’s riding skills. Q had declared James would have his brains blown if he rode pillion. It was nearly 4 in the morning, quite the perfect opportunity indeed.
Knowing Q rode a bike was one thing. Actually seeing him perched with his legs splayed was another. Drinking in the sight of Q decked in a biker’s leather jacket, complete with probiker gloves and a HJC helmet that had more than one sticker on its surface. It really was quite the change from his usual drab jeans and t-shirt attire behind the DJ station.
His ride was a thing of classic beauty. Jet black seat covers contrasting beautifully against the chrome of the frame. Its straight-twin engine looked modified, but James couldn’t tell for sure from where he stood.
The smirk on James lips quirked in a way that fought back a smile. Sauntering confidently over to Q, who watched James approach with a smoulder that certainly took things up a notch. James swung his leg over and fitted himself closer than necessary against the DJ’s leather clad back.
“If you want your brains intact.” Q said, knocking the helmet against the knee that was pressed against his calf. Giving James an eye roll over his shoulder when the blond leaned even closer still, his fingers touching Q’s purposefully before he took the helmet.
“Ready?” Q raised his voice, over the loud rumble of his modified engines.
“Blow my mind Q.” James yelled back, his arms wrapping around Q’s waist. The bike must have gone from 0 to 50mph in a second, and breaking speed limits the next. James wrapped his arms tighter around Q as the wind whipped past them. The tension in Q’s body as he focused on weaving through the sparse traffic like a lunatic, the powerful hum of the machine between their legs.
James conceded on Q’s superior riding skills when they finally parked before the morning traffic could start. And Q conceded to James expert thrusting speed before the morning had even begun.
