jfc, has it really been 5 months?


I can't believe the last time I posted, or actually even really logged on to LJ, was over 5 months ago. If it wasn't for teapostal (♥) giving me a bit of a nudge, I probably would have let another 5 months go.

Why does LJ look like this now!? Sooo many changes, so much to catch up on!

Things that have happened to me so far this year:

  • Got a new job. New Job is doing really well and I love everyone. It's so nice to work with fun people again. It also helps that I'm actually excited to go to work and it's busy and I'm not slowly dying inside.

  • Friends are trying to to get me to run a 10k. LOL WHAT. How did they get the impression that I can run 10k?

  • Bought Season 1 of Teen Wolf because I ran out of things to watch. I am now hooked. HOOKED. I can't decide if I want Tyler Hoechlin to a) never wear a shirt again in the show, or b) always wear low-slung jeans, a tight white shirt, and his sexy as fuck leather jacket while driving around in his car like a hoodlum.

  • I've been making my way steadily through all the Stiles/Derek Teen Wolf fics I can get my grubby little hands on. Share your faves, bbs. Sharing is caring.</i>

where the h/d at?

Just read a sweet little Avengers/HP crossover and now I am dying for some good H/D fic. I'm such a horrible H/D fangirl because I haven't read nearly as many fics as I should have over the past few years. But that must be rectified immediately!

Dear flist, please rec me your most favourite H/D fics that you've read in the last little while. I will take your AUs, your Hogwarts-era, your angst, your humour, your porn - anything!

Maybe it'll help cheer me up and get me drawing productively again.

rec comms and art things

Is there a Marvel-centric or Avengers-centric version of crack_van? I know there's crack_impala for the SPN fandom and crack_broom for the HP crowd. I follow comicstore_news but I'd really like to follow a comm dedicated to recs. Can you tell I'm new to the fandom? Lol.

Also, I need to get started on some art things. My hd_fanart prompt is really very awesome as there were boudoirs and feathers happening in it and I can't wait to get started. But I might need some help coming up with ideas for hd_holidays. I am awful at coming up with ideas on my own.

thor/loki recs?

Paper Monsters by clocks is done. *flails* I remember this being one of the first things I read in the XMFC fandom and have been impatiently waiting for its completion since. I love everything that the author has ever written, especially Our House, in the Middle of Our Street. It's a fic that I can read over and over again and love it more after every reading.

Right now I'm trying to make my way through all the Thor/Loki fics I can get my grubby little hands on. :D :D :D Avengers fans on my flist, got any Thor/Loki fic recs for me??! Tumblr's been doing an awesome job on the fanart front and I've been listening to a podfic of Chaos War by faviconastolat. But I need fics for reading, you guys!

Also, Hiddleston. ♥___________♥ I never really had much of an opinion of him until I started watching interviews with the Avengers cast and then interviews of him alone being his perfectly articulate and dorky and smiley self. If Tom Hiddleston, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender were ever cast in a movie together I don't think I would be able to handle it. I'd be dead by the time the trailers came out.

There have been some really intriguing things coming from spn_j2_bigbang! xmenreversebang starts posting July 6!

My sister graduated from college a few days ago. Man, I feel old.

rec me all your john/sherlock fics

Dear friends in the Sherlock fandom,

Rec me all the fics! Rec me all your favourite long, plotty John/Sherlock fics! I want your AUs, your casefics, your fluff, your angst, everything.

I'm not feeling very well and all I want to do is curl up in my bed and read and read and read. I'm good for my Charles/Erik and my Marcus/Esca but I am severely lacking in things to read for John/Sherlock. There's a shit ton of fics on AO3 but I don't know what's good! HELP ME.

With kind regards,

of music, recs, and christmas cards


Cobra Starship's Night Shades is on loop in my car right now and I'm really digging Disaster Boy. It took a while for me to come around on the new CD (a little too much club vibe for my liking, some of the singing sounds off, plus Shaggy OMG WHAT NO) but I like it. It's no Viva La Cobra (best ever) but it's good and catchy and generally upbeat. If anyone wants I can put the album up for download.

Recs in need!

I'll soon be embarking on a short road trip with some friends to attend another friend's wedding in October and I need tunes! I'm going to be stuck in a car with these people for hours and hours and while I love them, I prefer to drive with nothing but good songs in my ear and the open road ahead. Therefore, please rec me some good driving music!

Rec for you!

the road ahread is clear again by notalwaysweak (The Big Bang Theory). This was done for bigbangbigbang and it features a Penny that tries to do well for herself and then good things happen. It touches on the Penny/Raj and Penny/Leonard relationships from the show and clears them up neatly. The Penny/Sheldon in this is really more pre-relationship but the build-up is very sweet and believable. The supporting characters are also quite awesome. Author's summmary: Penny’s had enough of being a failure. If she can’t succeed at what she wants to, then damn it, she’s going to succeed at what she knows she’s good at.

Christmas cards!

Don't forget to give me your address if you want a Christmas card! Come one, come all, share in the goodness and joy of the holiday season. :D

i like gooooold

I have the ugliest sunburn which is slowly turning into the ugliest tan. :/ And right now I'm sitting at my desk peeling/rubbing/scraping at it. The thing hurt like a mofo until two days ago and blisters started popping up yesterday. I feel like Goldmember, but of course, minus the eating part. Kinda gross. O_O

Does anyone know where I can find good Criminal Minds fic? It doesn't have to be shippy or anything, just some good fics for someone new to fandom to ease into.

Oh, and:

Thanks to those that wished me a happy birthday!

I'm really liking Born This Way and am attached to Government Hooker, Bloody Mary, and You & I.

lj strike and audiobook requests

A day of silence, if you will, has been suggested here in response to LJ's burgeoning dictatorship over our internets. If you don't want to follow the link, the details are as follows:

For one day, make no posts. Make no comments. Let there be NO new content added to LJ.

SUP obviously does not realize that Basic users have given something of value to them, that it is content that drives the site.

So, for one 24-hour period, from midnight GMT to midnight GMT, let's see how many people we can get to pledge to contribute NO CONTENT.

This will create a permanent downward spike in the daily-posts statistics, a permanent reminder of the power of the userbase.

Who's with me, and what date shall it be?

This Friday, March 21.

Hahaha, that won't be very hard for seeing as how I don't post very often anyway. :D

Since discovering the wonderful world of podcasts and audiobooks, I have done nothing but listen to SPN fic on the way to and from work. It's about a forty-five minute drive so listening to Sam/Dean makes the time fly by. But I think I'm slowly running out of things to download, so...

Can anyone rec me any good downloadable fic? Please? Save this poor girl from the horrors for five o'clock traffic by plying her with hot Wincest and shiny J2 fic, I beg you!
