Many moons ago there was a fic called 'Boy' aka (ETA:) 'The Boxer' (I think), by alice someone or other 'Gay Bar' by automatedalice_. If memory serves, it was based on/around/referenced a song called 'Boy'. I am looking for that song, if anyone remembers who it was by, or a snippet of the lyrics or something, so I can try to track it down.

If someone happens to have a copy of the fic, or knows where it might be located, that would also be appreciated. *hopes*

Thank you! :D

ETA: Score!

'Boy' aka 'Gay Bar', by shannon aka automatedalice_, courtesy of The Way Back Machine and kitane.

Yuo should all go read this! (And the song, btw, was Book of Love's "Boy".)

The only fic I know of with a similar title is Boy by spikedluv; and 'the boxer' theme reminds me of a long-ago fic(let) by wiseacres, whose name I can't recall, sorry.

Oh, I just realized that's advanced search has a 'search by song title', so here's a couple of possibles from there (for lyrics I hear is good):
"Boy!" I Think It's Really Love - The Rock 'n' Rollers
Boy, Boy(I'm The Boy) - Culture Club

...and there's just way too many song titles that match, and no way to get the list to sort the albums alphabetically by them, sorry.

My bad, it was called 'Boy' aka 'Gay Bay' by automatedalice_, which is now a deserted, locked down journal. Which still doesn't give me the song or the fic, but might help in the search.

There are way too many 'Boy' songs to make any sort of search feasible without a snippet of lyrics or an artist. (I already tried. *g*)

Thanks for trying!

I loved the fic wiseacres and the one by spikedluv. :D

Well, I'm quite familiar with a song "Gay Bar"... *vbg*
20th-Aug-2007 09:35 pm (UTC)
Ha! Me too. *g*

The only thing I can think of that even vaguely resembles that title is "Bus Stop Boxer" by wiseacress, which is based off a song of the same title by The Eels.

If that's not it, then I'm sorry, but I'd reccomend reading that fic, because it's really good :)

That is a very good fic, but alas not the one. I had not only the AKA wrong (Gay Bar not The Boxer) but also the username - automatedalice_ (journal long deserted and locked.)

Thanks for trying1

A rec for a rec:

This is what I was looking for and it's well worth a read. :D

Automated Alice automatedalice??? wrote a fic called 'The boy' and it was a first time AU Spander thing, all human. I'm trying to find it, mostly 'cause it was hot, but also 'cause i think that might be what you're thinking of??

20th-Aug-2007 08:34 pm (UTC)
it is! and there's an underscore at the end of her name but that doesn't help because the journal is flocked and deserted, long dead. It's very hot and I actually have the damn thing in my memories still (which I should have remembered!) but alas, all locked and useless. :(
20th-Aug-2007 08:41 pm (UTC)
Me again - there's some of the journal at the WBM =>*/

it's being a pain for me, though. Maybe you'll have better luck. :-)
20th-Aug-2007 09:16 pm (UTC)
Um. Well. Yes.

I, kinda, er, find my way into a part of automatedalice_'s journal, via the wonders of WBM. It's not an actual html page, but it can be viewed as such by copying the code into FrontPage or something; I stumbled over entries from roughly the summer of 2004, and there're part 14 and 15 of the "boy" fic there, among other hazy post-stuff. It also mentiones that the stories were also posted to mmm_smut, except I can't find any entries in calender at that time that resemble the fic/parts.

It's here =>

Opera eats all the line-breaks, though, and IE cuts off before the end, but it's good for copy&pasting.

The gods of all lj entries past and locked will strike me down for this, I'm sure...
20th-Aug-2007 08:57 pm (UTC)
Ah, yis. There were two alices, one with underscore and one without.

I was positive i had her fic from some other site, and also positive someone else had archived her stuff for her, rather like abundantlyqueer...

That one lj, i dunno - i got on here in 2004 and was still reading and commenting so....i dunno. I'm so confused!

That was an awesome fic, so very good and very hot.
I want it now, too!!

Thank you thak you thank you! I've been mourning the loss of this fic (along with the not remembering pertinent details. *g*)
20th-Aug-2007 09:32 pm (UTC) - nevermind my last comment...
...I couldn't be more obsessive dedicated if I tried...

boy index via WBM => song = Book of Love "Boy" (single at Amazon). No lyrics from me though, sorry.

*colapses in a heap*
20th-Aug-2007 09:40 pm (UTC) - for the 3rd time, grrrr stupid lj
...And I got beaten to the punch, even. le sigh
20th-Aug-2007 09:42 pm (UTC) - Re: for the 3rd time, grrrr stupid lj
^^^pets^^^ You did good! *smooch*

I'd much rather have 2 people find it than none. :D
20th-Aug-2007 09:41 pm (UTC) - Re: nevermind my last comment...
Thank you! :D

I've saved it to my hard disc because I hate losing precious fic. And it is a wonderful fic!
