a f/f comment ficathon

On a not unrelated note, where are my Karen/Holly icons, internet? YOU'RE ALL BUSY MAKING GIFSETS ON TUMBLR, AREN'T YOU?

Not that I don't also appreciate your efforts on that front.

Also I saw the Legend of Korra finale. I might do a post later to try and put my thoughts together. The brief version [Spoiler (click to open)]is that like the whole series, I think there were some good things and some good ideas but an equal amount of strange/bad things and some rushed execution. For once I find myself actually thinking a show needed more episodes.
I. This week felt loooong. I am not sure why, really, since in theory it was no different from any other week, but oh my god was I glad to finish work today. It’s Thanksgiving weekend, so we get Monday off as well, which is swell. Thanksgiving tends to be something of a non-event in my house, and this year my dad’s in Beijing so it’s just me and my mom, but I am always open to having additional days off work/school. And to anyone who says it’s “not real Thanksgiving”, allow me to direct you to this gif:

II. I also discovered a Canadian station that – gasp! – lets me stream Community, Modern Family and HIMYM online. Legally. To those of you in the US with Hulu or in Britain with iPlayer this probably seems pretty basic, but to that I say F U GUYS. I don’t have anything in particular to say about this week’s crop of shows, though I will say that in a shocking twist I think this week’s Office episode was my favourite of the four I watched.

Also, a question for those of you who watch Community: Spoilers for 2x03 I guessCollapse )

I also watched the third (by accident, lol, I thought it was the pilot) episode of that show “Undercovers”. It’s not really my kind of show, so I find it hard to say if it was just me finding it bland or if it was kind of bland, but Gugu Mbatha-Raw is totally adorable and her American accent is A+. I hope it survives long enough to find its feet.

III. I suck at comment ficathons, but I support the theme of this one and I know some of you are into them so I’m going to advertise it anyway:

IV. I am quite bored. I tried writing some s5 fic earlier but that wasn’t happening. Raaagh I miss being able to write (short) fic. Anyway, I’ve returned to my long-forgotten 30 Women Meme.

Today's: geniuses on whom incompetents rely.Collapse )
01 September 2010 @ 12:33 pm
I. So we are all in agreement, right? No Facebooking/Twittering of each other's posts? Good.

II. I am off to a cottage tomorrow morning! Well, I say "cottage", but supposedly it is like three times the size of my house. I will take pictures. Anyway, it also means as of tomorrow I will be gone from the internet until Monday evening. I know, it will be hard.

III. I finished s1 of Secret Diary last night! Spoilers I guess.Collapse )

IV. Doing my modly duty:

It is your basic comment ficathon and it is running for the next couple weeks.

I have such a dumb relationship with ficathons and fests. Allow me to share.

Step 1 - The Ficathon/Fest/Whatever is announced/I find out about it

Thought process: "omg this will be so great I will write ALL THE FICS!!!"

Final action: Sign up for way more than you can deliver and/or stalk the post eagerly and tell all your friends about the AWESOME FICS you are TOTALLY GOING TO WRITE for the AWESOME FICATHON

Step 2 - The Ficathon Opens and Accepts Prompts

Thought process: "OMG OMG OMG... I don't have any prompts, I must jealously guard any good fic ideas I have so that I can write them."

Final action: Post no prompts and resign yourself to answering others'.

Step 3 - Fic Posting Begins

Thought process: "OMG!!! ...omg I can't write any of these. This prompt is too long, this prompt is too short, and this porridge is too cold. Why do all the prompts suck? Why do I suck? OMG why can't I write anything? OMG FICATHON I HATE YOU!"

Final action: Write maybe 200 words of fic for one prompt; hate all 200; flounce and write nothing while regarding the ficathon and the successful authors with resentment

Step 4 - The Ficathon Ends

Thought process: "Well that sucked for me. Hmmm. Maybe by the next one I will be better at writing prompts!"

Final action: repeat steps 1-4
26 July 2010 @ 03:11 pm
In the last two days I have somehow gone from not writing anything at all to having three -- or maybe more like 2.5 -- fics on the go at once. And they all involve some measure of plot (AHHHHH) and goldy_dollar. So as you can probably guess, in one of them, the Doctor and Rose bake a cake out of rainbows and smiles so everyone can eat it and be happy.

So I guess there might be fic soon. I KNOW, YOU WERE ALL SO CONCERNED.

In the meantime, here is more of that 30 Day Meme.

Day 16 – Your Favourite Who-Related FanFic

Okay I don't actually have a good answer for this one. I can't think of a Doctor Who fic that sticks out in my mind as being ZOMG THE BEST EVER the way I can easily think of my favourite HP fic, for instance. I think the problem might be that the characters in Doctor Who are too spread out. I mean, my favourite Doctor/Rose fic probably doesn't have a segment on the epic BFFery of Ten and Donna, or a part about Martha Jones being the most badass bamf to ever bamf. So it is hard to find ONE FIC that I like most.

So here, have one of each.

Ten Calls by Jayne Leitch is my go-to Martha fic rec. It was written post-s3 so it has been a bit jossed since then, but I still really like it, and I think it does a good job of portraying the relationship I wish Ten and Martha had had after s3 though in reality I know that could never happen because Ten is a weenie. But it's delightfully timey-wimey and her Martha voice is quite good and in general the fic makes me happy. Four for you, Jayne Leitch.

For Donna, let's go with Your History Written in Stars and Time by such_heights. There are about a billion post-JE Donna fics, and this one is probably my favourite, and probably the only one that more-or-less stands up after EOT. The idea behind it, that aliens keep searching out Donna because the universe does remember, is so sweet and sad. And it is one of the few post-JE fics that doesn't either fix Donna's brain or end with utter despair, so that's nice.

Okay turns out it is actually way harder to find my favourite Doctor/Rose fic than I would have previously anticipated. This is possibly because there was a period of time where I read just about everything anyone wrote ever, and that was followed by a period of time where I read nothing.

Let's go with But Broken Lights by rosa_acicularis which was written in like 2007 but whatever I do what I want. It was my go-to Ten/Rose rec for a long time and I love a good argument in a fic, and I remember really liking the way this fic discussed all their ~issues~. It's possible they even kiss or something, I don't really remember, but clearly I really liked the fic if I could get past that HORRIBLE MISSTEP, lirl. ...Wow I am the worst person ever at writing recommendations. Frances, I blame your salesmanship.

Here's a list of the other days.Collapse )
24 July 2010 @ 11:10 am
IIII am in Montreal right now at goldy_dollar's aunt's house. It is very nice and I think one of the dogs has taken a liking to me. Yesterday I was made to climb a mountain but I think I have now more or less physically recovered. Today we plan to counteract all that physical activity with cupcakes and poutine. This is good because I am much better at sitting and eating than I am at climbing mountains.

You would think I might have more to say, but I really don't. I will get back to that 30 Day Meme when I get home I think. In the meantime, I rec you THE BEST FIC EVER:

Title: Chicken Soup for the Dark Wizard's Soul by fireicerage906
Fandom & Characters/Pairings: Harry Potter, Dumbledore/Grindewald
Why you should read it: Because it is the greatest thing on the internet.
Excerpt: “You mean...” Grindelwald’s face twisted with disgust. “You’re just going to keep me?”

“I... No.” Dumbledore let out a frustrated sigh. “Perhaps... perhaps I’ve been at Hogwarts for too long. Maybe it’s time I settled down, time I cared for someone else. I could take care of you. Gellert, I could help you.”
I. This icon accurately depicts my life. Ty, Hyperbole and a Half.

II. Everyone is doing that ‘seven things about my writing process!’ meme and I think I am just bored enough to give it a shot. Let's see!Collapse )

III. I am totally going to watch that not-Disney-but-everyone-thinks-it-is Anastasia movie for the first time tonight. I KNOW, I AM SO COOL.

IV. Day 12 – Whatever Tickles Your Fancy

John Barrowman Writes and Performs Song Fic

Oh, John Barrowman.

The rest of the days!Collapse )

Fandom is pretty often ripe with misogyny and all sorts of back-and-forth wank about that misogyny, but occasionally it surprises me. This fandomsecret today delighted me because I am always delighted when I learn about more people who love Martha, Donna and Rose.

And sign ups for this year's femgenficathon went up today. Once upon a time it was this ficathon that produced what is still one of my favourite pieces of fanfiction: Five Women Who Hate Fleur Delacour by snegurochka_lee. If you're at all inclined to read Harry Potter fic and by some sad miracle you haven't read this yet, I heartily endorse it.

So I decided to sign up this time around. Here's the quote I've got:

It seems to me that the poet has only to perceive that which others do not perceive, to look deeper than others look. And the mathematician must do the same thing. -- Sofya Kovalevskaya (1850-1891), first major Russian female mathematician, first woman to hold a full professorship in a northern European university, writer of memoirs and novelist. Known for the Cauchy-Kowalewski theorem. The lunar crater Kovalevskaya is named after her.

No real ideas yet, but fics aren't due until July. It was only after last year's round that I learned it was not actually a HP-only fest like I'd previously thought, so this year I thought I'd give it a whirl, because if there is one thing Doctor Who fandom is not lacking, it is badass female characters. I submit this video by kaydeefalls as evidence:

Happy Friday, everyone!

So pretty much the bulk of what I wrote over the summer were the fics with wild_sibyl and goldy_dollar respectively, and both of them were a lot of fun. However this also means that all I've really written in like six months is Cloen angsting around, and I really miss writing Donna because Donna is great.

So... someone give me something to write which features Donna being awesome.

In other news last night goldy_dollar and I saw "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs" primarily because it was the only thing playing at a convenient time, and it was kind of really awesome. It was legitimately hilarious, I was very surprised.

Also, happy Jew celebrations to all Jews on my flist. SHANA TOVA seems to be the appropriate thing to say so I will say it.
17 September 2009 @ 09:51 pm
Here are several unrelated thoughts while I wait for someone to upload the season premiere of The Office.

on Kanye WestCollapse )

on cat sweatersCollapse )

on fanfictionCollapse )

a little-known fact about Journey's EndCollapse )

on talking pop-up adsCollapse )

Andddd looks like it's up, so fin!

eta -- now with working HTML! Hurrah
24 August 2009 @ 09:49 pm
I'm writing a fic with goldy_dollar and I find the process kind of hilarious. The last collab I did was with wild_sibyl and we were basically on the same wavelength the whole time. With Frances it seems to be more like:

Frances: I think we should show him getting better.
Kali: Let's have him set fire to an orphanage.
Frances: ...Or he could go to dinner at Jackie's.
Frances: ...Um...

Apparently Harry Potter didn't rid of me of my "LOL ANGST IS FUN" thing as well as I had hoped.

And now, a poll of SCIENCE! Because I know you missed my polls.

Ten's crowning moment of hypocritical douchebaggery was totally...

"Rose Tyler, defender of the Earth!" vs "YOU WORK FOR TORCHWOOD?"
Bitching at Martha for working the job that he got her
Every time he yells at someone for committing and/or attempting genocide
Bitching at Martha for threatening to sacrifice her own planet for the sake of the universe
"No second chances, I'm that sort of a man! Unless you're the Daleks. Or the Master. Particularly if you're the Master."
"You're wrong, Jack. But wasn't Rose adorable when she was an all-powerful Time Vortex-riddled glowy God? :D"
Bitching out Cloen for killing the Daleks. Again.
Going out of his way to avoid post-COE Jack in all his crying, coffee-drinking glory
Dear World,

lacunaz has written the best post-JE fic anyone has ever written, ever.

It is called "Handy" and you should go read it here because as we all know, how people refer to second!Doctor is Srs Bsnss.

That is all,

01 February 2009 @ 06:52 pm
In a fit of madness and possibly awesomeness, inksplotched, likeserendipity and I present:

atasteof! A Taste of Everything, a Multi-Fandom Recs Community.

A Taste of Everything will feature recs from a variety of fandoms with a variety of pairings and genres -- emphasis on (you guessed it) variety. Right now we're a team of three -- inksplotched will be reccing for Harry Potter, likeserendipity's in charge of Twilight and I'm your rep for Doctor Who. About 2-3 recs will be posted per week per fandom.

We're also looking to expand our fandomy horizons, so if you'd like to represent a fandom, or even suggest a fic in any fandom, let us know! We're particularly interested in finding people for the following fandoms:

  • The Office -- hurrah, miss_mishi!
  • Gossip Girl
  • Merlin
  • Supernatural
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Narnia -- welcome aboard sensations!

...but if you're interested in another, feel free to apply here!

Watch us, apply, suggest a fic or simply look around.
iTunes' Halloween mix includes the (oldschool) Doctor Who theme and Hedwig's Theme (which is just called "Harry Potter"), as well as a crappy cover of Thriller by some woman. Who wants a cover of Thriller?

Speaking of Halloween, I hope you all had a good one. I was a crazy cat lady, but for whatever reason I never ended up using my camera so there are no pictures. The party I went to was ...retardedly dramatic. Drama of the highschool variety, to be specific which is I guess what happens when you try to date highschoolers. It was hosted by my friend Joe, who is my friend Candice's ex (and they dated for four years), and it featured:
-Joe's new lady of interest; they've been on like one or two dates
-Candice's "interest" in this lady of interest
-Lady of Interest flirting with Some Other Guy
-Kid From Highschool telling Candice that Lady of Interest "likes Joe but wants to fuck Other Guy"
-Candice indignantly telling Joe about Lady of Interest's interest in Other Guy
-Joe getting really really drunk
-Candice tending to really really drunk Joe while Lady of Interest and Other Guy mysteriously disappear for a long while
-Possibly there was some hole-in-wall punching as well lol Andy

All in all, not the best party I've ever attended. I had intended to stay the night but I ended up getting a ride home from Lisa and Kyle (who were dressed as Satine/a prostitute and Christian/a Rabbi respectively. Lisa insists he was Christian, but everyone -- and Kyle -- agreed that he looked more like a Rabbi) because I wasn't really ~feelin' it~... plus when Lyle left I'd be basically alone with a bunch of high and/or drunk kids ...and Will, who was neither. Will claims to have found a new respect for my status as the Obligatory Sober Person, LIRL.

Most of the other costumes were unremarkable ("I'M A CAT LOL" x 200) and I don't have pictures anyway so sorry, but definitely my favourite was Joe and Chris' pair of Captain Hammer and Dr Horrible. I think I got minor street cred (or internet cred) for actually recognizing them right away. I was also the only one with ovaries who seemed to understand why Mark took to playing "Never Gonna Give You Up". Candice's was pretty good too, she was Miss Scarlett from Clue.

Obligatory meme (because no one cares about the rest of this stuff): Go to urbandictionary.com and type in your answer to each question in the search box, then write the FIRST definition it gives you.Collapse )

For those of you who are cool enough, UR.org's Annual (Harry Potter) Christmas Fic Exchange is opening up again, so you should all go sign up now so Christy doesn't eat my face. The exchange fics are notoriously AWESOME so obviously you should go do that now.

Haven't made a public/fandomy post in a while so here goes!

Has anyone ever watched that show "The Moment of Truth"? I just saw about ten minutes of it and I can't get my head around how stupid it is. For those who are unaware, here's what I understand the premise is: someone agrees to answer X number of obscenely personal questions while connected to a lie detector. The show then "randomly" selects 1/2X of those questions to ask them on air. If they answer everything honestly (and basically don't chicken out by refusing to answer or lying) they get half a mill. Questions include "have you cheated on your current girlfriend?" and other life-shattering inquiries. I just... I don't get it. Okay, so you could win half a million (before taxes) -- but you also potentially destroy all your interpersonal relationships. Why? Why? And of course the audience boos angrily whenever someone answers "yes" to a bad question, and of course there's a woman who goes "THAT ANSWER IS ... [insert unneccessarily long pause for dramatics].... TRUE..." and of course the show picks all the questions where the answer was embarassing.

Did I mention I hate reality TV and game shows?

Except The Mole. Fuck yes, the Mole was so awesome.

What else? For anyone who's seen Hairspray or had to listen to the credits music constantly for five months and watches Doctor Who: this is so comically appropriate.

Also the first chapter of Breaking Dawn is failtastic. All I want from Breaking Dawn now is for Jacob and Tanya to hook up and be totally awesome, leaving Edward and Bella to wallow in their failure marital bliss. And lawl, northern Canada. Sup Jake?

Whatever muse I once had has apparently died a violent death. It's like pulling teeth to write five coherent sentences, I swear. It's basically to the point I don't even want to write. I don't know, but it sucks. I also fail at writing commitments because of it -- I didn't finish anythingbutgrey's birthday fic on time, I've owed pirate_smile a letter for like ninety years, and I only just finished the letter I've owed latine for one hundred years. Not to mention Silly Love Songs is rolling in a pit of failure, haha.

I also mean to write a Harry/Hermione fic for afterthree's "someting unexpected" challenge, because coming from me there's nothing more unexpected than an uncanon shippy fic about the Trio, wtf.

Anyway, in the spirit of attempting to kick myself into gear, here's a meme:

Reply with a character or pairing i'm familiar with and i'll write a few sentences of fic.

Note the "few sentence" part; I promise nothing complete or whole in any form, I just kinda wanna... force myself to write stuff. Yeaah. And if you happen to give me a Twilight pairing, please note that I have never, ever written Twilight before because that would mean I'd have to actually put thought into Smeyer's characters.

So yesterday/today I applied to & joined ontd_twilight, clearly indicating that I am megalame. OR MEGA AWESOME? No probably megalame. Anyway thusfar they seem to be hilarious. And I'm pretty excited because I've always wanted to ruin a fandom.

In other news, happy Easter, guys. I don't really celebrate Easter beyond "ooo chocolate bunnies" but ... y'know. Enjoy.

- Reply to this post, and I will pick four/five/six of your icons.
- Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
- Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
- This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

Here's that icon meme, as chosen by inksplotched and mybabyangel:

1. - I feel as though this speaks for itself. I cannot be part of the Twilight fandom without mocking it mercilessly, and I needed an icon that would allow me to do so, and bluebellflames pulled through. YAY JULI. Also, it's massively true. Dude speaks like a shitty Valentine's card.

2. - Basically buttfacemakani is amazing, as I am sure everyone in the universe will agree, plus I love Lily/James and unrequited!Severus and basically it's just the greatest image I've ever seen. That and Lily's bubble sys "LOL LOL JERKS" and though now I think it probably is her calling them jerks while laughing, I first interpreted it like "LOL I <3 JERKS" which I think is a very accurate and hilarious statement, given her choice in men.

3. - I hate Chuck Norris jokes, but I sure do love Chuck Norris style jokes when referring to someone who is not Chuck Norris. Like "Bill Nye can split atoms with his bare hands!" and ...well, the quote seen here. Plus it matches the amazing facebook group I'm in. There were like ninety of these that I loved, including "Neville Longbottom uses the Mirror of Erised to comb his hair."

4. - I found a post of Simpsons quote icons and saved like nine thousand. I'm using this one for the time being because it helps me make fun of Twilight. ...And eskimos.

5. - Another result of bluebellflames' awesome icon requests. I love this one because it combines my love for Scrubs and Dr Cox/Kelso with an awesomely useful icon for times when peopel are bastards. Which is often.

6. - Because it is amazing.

IN OTHER NEWS, everyone who is anyone NEEDS TO GO WATCH this AMAZING episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark? on youtube. Shit, I loved that show hardcore when I was young and am super-stoked to find out that episodes are on youtube. But you all need to watch THIS ONE because there is NOTHING FUNNIER than a 90s show about computers. Tru fax. EVIL TAMOGACHIS :O

I have just decided I will finish my redandthewolf entry tonight. I must, I must, I must (improve my bust?)

And I'm stupid so I posted at this honesty meme so... yeah, do it if you like. Whatevs.
20 December 2007 @ 09:13 pm
Okay buttfacemakani is to blame for this one. You know, as if you could ever blame her for anything at all. She'd just draw something awesome to distract you and then run away into the night. See: icon.


Name a character from one of my fandoms, and I'll give you either ...

1. three facts about them from my personal canon/fanon
2. a reason he/she sucks
3. a reason he/she is awesomecakes
4. five things that never happened to that character
5. five people that character never fell in love with and why

If you want 1, 4 or 5 it may actually spawn itself into a little fic, in which case I advise choosing from the wide array of Ms. Rowling's characters rather than Monica from Friends. If you want to choose someone random again then I'd suggest 2 or 3 because I probably won't be able to come up with much more. Ha. Ha.

But actually I'm kind of hoping people will give me someone interesting and choose 4 or 5 (or even 1) because I am bored and sort of inspirationed-out and this seems like a cool place to start.

What should I be writing? Probably one of the fic exchange/challenge things I'm signed up for, or Silly Love Songs (which should've been updated like eons ago), or A Thoroughly Unremarkable Day (which I intended to update like eons ago) or, even better, one of the two major essays that I really, really need to start and have not, yet.

What am I writing? None of the above, naturally!

Title: Hollow
Rating: G right now. Or maybe PG for rampant angst. Guess it depends on how much of a pansy you are. Also I am like 99% sure no one gives a shit about ratings unless it's the difference between a PG-13 and an R/NC-17. Has anyone actually ever been like "OH IT IS PG-13 AND I AM TWELVE, I BETTER NOT READ IT"? Come on.
Characters: Various; any pairings will be canon, but I don't expect this will veer into the land of shipping too often.
Summary: Follow various characters on their pilgrimage to Godric's Hollow.
Excerpt: Thinking of them no longer causes an ache so deep he fears he might collapse into himself, and he finds himself worrying that the admirers that cropped up after the fall of Voldemort have faded into obscurity, leaving the Potters' grave forgotten and ignored.

Hollow - March 27, 1985

10 October 2007 @ 10:48 pm
Title: Crossing the T's
Authors: Me (_thirty2flavors) and latine (Sharon).
Rating: Probably nothing more than G for now, though I'm thinking it may rise to PG-13.
Genre: Romance/Humour. (I return to my roots? Or something.)
Characters: Dorea Black & Charlus Potter, along with a whole host of original characters, overlooked canon characters, and characters you know and love before you know and love them.
Excerpt: I am trying and will continue trying my best to get along with you, but do believe me when I tell you that when these six months are over, you and I are done with. No hard feelings.
Summary: In the 1930s, Tom Riddle is just a boy, Dumbledore is just a teacher, Grindelwald is undefeated and, as it happens, a Potter and a Black are paired together in Potions. Inspired by The UR Forums' Letter Project Challenge.

03 October 2007 @ 08:34 pm
I'm watching a hockey game, but it's intermission right now, so survey ahoy!Collapse )

I've lost my interest in pimping, but I have written lots more drabbles:

'Out, Damn Spot' - a scene centering around Severus plucked from POA.

'Bluffing' - a 100-word companion to Valedictory, starring Sirius.

'The Height of Dishonour' - inspired by the line in DH "[James] would have thought it the height of dishonour to mistrust his friends.

Slightly longer:

'But For the Grace of God': Severus duels James after Hogwarts, and the battle makes a lasting impression.

24 August 2007 @ 12:46 am
So partially in thanks to nest_of_spiders and partially just through, um, my miraculous brain (pft), Puzzle Pieces has three new not-quite-drabbles-not-quite-oneshots tagged on to it.

First, a oneshot:

Title: Delayed Reaction
Rating: PG for massive angst
Prompt: "Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it." - Dumbledore in GOF (If I were Chris I'm sure I could give you the chapter number too.)
Excerpt: He finds James' body first, and grief begins to work its way to the outermost edges of his consciousness, but he shoves it away valiantly. Any emotion is better than the unbearable impending heartbreak, and so he throws himself into anger and hatred instead.
Summary: Sirius represses his grief over the Potters for a very, very long time.

Dude my iPod just went from a very solemn Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again to a blasting (Phantom's music is quiet) Stayin' Alive by the BeeGees. The dangers of shuffle. *snort* Awesome.


Yes. These are all added to Puzzle Pieces, though they're longer, 300-700 words.

Title: First-Rate Intelligence:
Characters: Lily, James
Prompt: "The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise." - F. Scott Fitzgerald
Summary: James is worried about the consequences of hiding.

Title: Something Old, Something New
Characters: James, Charlus
Prompt: Very loosely:"Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes." -Henry David Thoreau, Walden
Summary: The day before he goes to Hogwarts, James inherits an heirloom.

Title: Purveyors of Aids
Characters: Remus, Fred, George
Summary: Remus thinks about his favorite students.

Current Music: wishing you were somehow STAYIN' ALIVE
