renrenren3: (Text * Call Batman)
Go watch Suits nao. I'll give you three reasons why.

  1. There's snark and gay and suits. No but seriously, this is the most epic bromance. Think Arthur and Merlin. Think Steve and Danny. But with suits. I feel like that part is relevant because they put it in the title. It's relevant. Also the women in this show? They kick ass.
  2. Reason number two?

  3. lol j/k I don't have three reasons, go read Pat's primer instead, she puts it better.
renrenren3: (X-Men * Charles/Erik)
So as I miiight have mentioned already, I wrote fic with kittens. This is that fic. I'm going to slip in a couple of recs for fics that aren't mine, too, so I don't look like the huge comment whore that I really am.

Of kittens and teacups and love (X-Men First Class, Charles/Erik, PG-13, ~5,000 words)
Modern AU in which Charles and Erik are flatmates. Charles studies psychology and likes tea and chess and keeps bringing home stray kittens, and Erik lets him because he's maybe perhaps a little bit sort of in love with him.
I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CAVITIES YOU MIGHT GET FROM PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO THIS STUFF. MIGHT INDUCE FLAILING. THERE ARE RUN-ON SENTENCES AND I KEEP FINDING TYPOS. THERE ARE ALSO KITTENS.

Half-light (Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, NC-17, ~750 words)
Arthur, Merlin, a pair of handcuffs and no plot whatsoever. My entry for week 1 of the [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon. (I figured since I keep bothering you and talking about it I might as well show the ~results.)

Planet of the undead (Doctor Who, Amy/Rory, PG, ~700 words)
Amy and Rory survive a zombie attack. Because obviously I needed to go back and write more zombie AUs. Except it's DW so everything can work in canon! Yay! This fic turned out surprisingly well, considering it was written for a challenge in which I needed to use 5 different prompts chosen at random.

When a good man goes to war (Doctor Who/SPN, Dean, Sam and Eleven, PG, ~600 words)
When a good man goes to war, he calls in some owed favors from an old acquaintance. Someone prompted "DW/SPN, When a good man goes to war" and I just had to write this. Commentfic again, and this was written during a ficcing all-nighter so quality is what it is, but I like the outcome.



And now, other people's stuff!

Technicolor (X-Men First Class, Charles/Erik, PG, ~1,500 words)
Charles, Erik, and an appliance store. More domestic schmoop, because clearly I'm not satisfied with just my own. IT'S SO FLUFFY I COULD DIE.

The Evening Broadcast (X-Men First Class, Charles/Erik, NC-17, ~1,100 words)
Sometimes, no matter how hard Charles is focusing his thoughts inwards, things still manage to get out.
OR
That one where Charles accidentally broadcasts his orgasm to the whole house.

Exactly what it says on the tin. Hilarious.


And some fanart too! It makes me squee so much to see artists that I like joining the First Class squee. There seems to be a lot of them coming over from the Inception and the SPN fandoms.
renrenren3: (Default)
Colin Morgan, Bradley James, Andrew Garfield, Jesse Eisenberg and EVERYONE ELSE EVER pales in front of the combined powers of James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender. I mean, I can't even. Just watch this interview. (*) Or bask in the glory of the gifs that invaded my dashboard this morning. No cut because why wouldn't you want to watch them. Seriously. Just. I don't even.









(*) Video might be kind of spoilery for X-Men First Class. But why wouldn't you have watched that glorious, glorious movie yet?

Also, I want screencaps of the movie so I can make the cover for my ~awesome fanmix. And pics of Lyanna for my other fanmix, but she isn't even in the series so agshagshsahsgh;;

ETA: Where is all the RPF. I swore I'd never write RPF myself, but come ooon. This is just begging to be written. Like. Five times they have sex, and the fifth they cuddle. IDK IDK. I HAVE PRINCIPLES. WHICH INVOLVE READING RPF BUT NOT WRITING IT. YET.
renrenren3: (Glee * Kurt & Blaine)
...it's 1:17am and I'm watching a crappy livestream waiting for Glee. Yep, I caved in. My sister told me it's a bad idea. It probably is. It's not even the Regionals episode, but what can I say. I'm in love with Animal and I'm tired of keeping healthy sleeping habits. I'll pay for this in the morning. Meanwhile, live reactions! And really live this time!

GLEE SPOILERS. AND FLAILING. BUT MOSTLY FLAILING. )

It could be because I missed the first 10 minutes, but I still can't believe it's over. This episode was... IDEK GUYS I HAVE ABUSED EVERY EXPRESSION OF JOY AND SURPRISE ALREADY. 3AM. I'M GOING TO SLEEP AND DREAM OF BABY PENGUINS.
renrenren3: (Glee * epic fail)
As much as I love [livejournal.com profile] kurt_blaine for being my primary source of spoilers and set photos, I wish they weren't so damn quick to delete posts. Especially when they delete a post because the same photos/links/whatever because the same stuff has been posted in a comment to another earlier entry. Not everyone is keeping track of all posts, yanno. :|

Also, everyone should go join [livejournal.com profile] hawaii50_land because it's awesome and because I say so. There will be another pimping as soon as they post their pimping challenge (all land comms usually do so it's a safe bet) but I just wanted to tell you. The pimping challenge is a-go. There were banners. Look at the pretty banner.

It's H50. It's epic. Also I'm on Team Chin, but I weep at the thought of 3 other awesome teams I'm not in, Team Kono, Team Danny and Team Steve.

And, because I eventually was going to, I made a tumblr account: http://furthermoreover.tumblr.com/
I thought of the name while I was doing one last frantic re-read of some theorem or other just before my exam, the words were swimming in front of my eyes and couldn't read properly. I thought if I passed I was going to make a tumblr account with that name, so yeah. Everyone with an account, I want to follow you! ♥

ETA: I also finished my Torchwood fanmix, the one I've been working on ever since seeing S1. Oddly enough, the thing I'm most proud of is the back cover with the tracklisting, so I wanted to show everyone:
Img. )
renrenren3: (Merlin * Lady Vivian)
I ACED MY EXAM!


Also, Glee was awesome.

I'm going to make some kind of spam post later on to celebrate. So happy, guys, I don't even.
renrenren3: (SPN * not drunk enough)
So uhm, I accidentally wrote some porn. IDEK how it happened, the first (normal, for my standards) part was inspired by the maritombola prompt, the second (angsty) part by an email exchange with Pat, the third (porny) part possibly by a certain Italian community that shall go unnamed.
Everybody goes, leaving those who fall behind
Inception * Arthur/Eames * NC-17 * ~4,000 words

Still one month before the DVD comes out, Y U DO THIS TO ME ITALY?
This makes it my second longest fic ever. Say what you want, porn is an effective way of boosting word count. And look at how pretty my card has become.

Also I have a couple more tombola ficlets and my gifts for the [livejournal.com profile] layton_exchange, but they can't hold a candle to my literary endeavour above.
Encyclopedia of reality shows * Sherlock * John, Sherlock * PG * ~550 words
The clockwork inefficiency * The Big Bang Theory * Penny, Sheldon * PG * ~600 words
Turnabout Puzzle * Phoenix Wright & Professor Layton * PG * ~1,000 words
A Gentleman and a Lady * Professor Layton * Layton, Claire * PG * ~600 words


SPEAKING OF PAT! DON'T FORGET THAT TODAY IS THE...
Despicable Me Live Watch Spam ♥

No, I really don't have anything else to say that isn't Ren-centric. :(
renrenren3: (Default)
Hi new friends from the Kurt/Blaine friending meme! Or possibly friend, there were lots of comments but few actual friend requests. Damn social awkwardness extending to the internet too. Anyway.

I finished S1 of the Vampire Diaries tonight and I have a few (non-spoilery) things to say.
First, how can Damon be so awesome?
Second, I don't know why but I read some spoilers that turned out to be actually wrong. Derp derp. Well, it helped with the suspense I guess.
Third, I think I have a crush on Damon. My sister might too. At the very least she agrees he's awesome. And my brother agrees (on the awesome, not on the crush part, or at least so I think; I'm still doing the bi-until-otherwise-proved thing). In short, when we agree on something, it means it's really really awesome.
Fourth, I felt sad for Damon in this ep, whenever he tries to to something nice life screws him no Kurt damn you it's not fair if your songs come up in my playlist and make me emo and holy cliffhanger Batman, I'm glad I can start on S2 straight away.
Fifth, Stefan's not as boring as I was afraid at first but he's still nobody compared to Damon.
Sixth, I ran out of things to say that aren't related to Damon.
Seventh, I ship Damon/mostly anyone. Seriously. Alaric, Elena, Sheriff Forbes, Stefan, anyone who can get him to drop his shirt.

Progress on my epic to-do list is going slow but steady. My thesis, which is not on there but is nevertheless a constant boring presence in my life, is kinda sorta moving forward too. And I got the 2 Layton ficlets out of the way.
I was going to write some Inception, only my first attempt sucked so much I don't think it'll ever get published. And I usually post all kinds of crap as long as it's complete, but this really sucks. You know when you have an idea and think "oooh, this is gonna be awesome!" and then it turns out to be a bitch to write and you hate the end result? Yeah, that.
So I moved to my [livejournal.com profile] merry_merthur prompt (did I mention that I hate portmanteau names already?) since I finally figured out what to write, got an outline and everything.

I was going to start writing it this afternoon but then I got this idea for a steampunk original story and I was all "oooh, this is gonna be awesome!" again... yeah, I never learn from my mistakes. But this time I had all the scenes playing out in my mind one by one until I went from "it would be cool to have a duel on top of a zeppelin" to something with a beginning and a middle part and characters, and then I thought of an ending scene which is the hardest part for me, and then I thought up the backstories of the minor characters and then I just had to at least outline it. The outline alone was 750 words, that's more than my usual ficlets. This thing is getting written. And I'm kinda... happy about it, I haven't written anything original in years because I kept going back to my one original plot and that's an epic saga with a dozen characters and plots that I'll never be able to write in one lifetime. But now I have my plot, which is totally an excuse for the two leads to get together with steampunk!London in the background, and it's still better than nothing and I'm gonna stop rambling and go write this.
renrenren3: (Default)
Spoilerpalooza. )



In other news, I joined [livejournal.com profile] maridichallenge (nah, totally not stalking anyone!) and I'm taking part in their annual tombola, which is the Italian version of bingo. Or is bingo the English/American version of... well, whatever.
The chance of customizing my card with trendy colours and a 1-in-6 chance of landing the "duck-shaped vibrator" prompt lured me in. So now I have yet another list of things to write, but they're all pretty awesome. Apart from the mpreg prompt that had me go "FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!" and complain for an inordinate amount of time, but then it was the first one I wrote because I'm insane like that.

Worse than gay porn (SPN, Dean and Sam, ~2,000 words, PG-13)
I wrote mpreg without actual mpreg. But it still warrants a mpreg warning for discussing mpreg. I still find mpreg awfully icky but now I can't stop saying mpreg.


Click my awesome card for embiggening!

Click this cut to figure out what the prompts are! )

Also, I finally closed voting at [livejournal.com profile] camelot_fics so I can de-anon for my own entry:
Fancy clothes (Merlin, Arthur and Merlin, ~600 words, PG)
Now... onwards to that Layton ficlet that's been plaguing me!
renrenren3: (Text * Call Batman)
The Inside Game of Thrones special aired, and it was awesome as promised. There's a bunch of new clips and it looks as the rumours about an April premiere are true.
I'm mostly excited about Petyr, I don't dig Aiden Gillen's moustache but he does look a lot like my mental image of Littlefinger.
Plus, eeee, Harry Lloyd! Ever since seeing him in Doctor Who I've been looking forward to seeing him as Viserys.
Also Benjen, and lots of Jon, and that scene with Arya, is that when SPOILER SPOILER happens?



Now if only that tie on [livejournal.com profile] camelot_fics could be broken... I'm giving it until tonight in the hopes we get a couple more votes, then I'm moving on. But I'm not happy. I hate having to take executive decisions. :|
renrenren3: (Default)
The next couple of meme ficlets have been posted! This time I filled both Castle prompts. I loved the Beckett one, but the Castle one ended up being one of the longest. I don't even know why. Uh, whatever. I even managed to avoid spoilers, am I awesome or what?
Kate Beckett - All the Right Moves by OneRepublic for [livejournal.com profile] gallifreycalls
Richard Castle - Hurricane Drunk by Florence and the Machine for [livejournal.com profile] bizarre_esque
With this I'm halfway through, and it took me just a month! So maybe I'll be done in another month and then I can do this Christmas prompts thing... Except I don't do Christmas, so it'd be for New Year. Whatevs. I'm rambling now.

Watched Inception again, in English - finally managed to download a nice clean rip! Obviously I'm getting the DVD too, but I'm bad at waiting. Anyway, Inception. ♥
Yeah, most likely the next fills will be the two Inception ones.

Lastly, if you're a Merlin fan you reeeally should head over to [livejournal.com profile] camelot_fics and vote so I can break the three-way tie that I have. It's really bothering me and I can't (for example) say that there is a tie for third place because my own fic is one of those tied. :/
So, either the tie get broken or the tie gets broken.

---

ETA: I finally made a custom icon for my layout so I wouldn't have to suffer LJ's ugly default one that always stretched the text. I totally still have pixel skillz.

Also I'm sad because I wrote this awesome fic for [livejournal.com profile] thegameison_sh's challenge but it might not fit the monthly theme.

And I don't know if I'm signing up for next round because I like Sherlock but I'd like to write other stuff too but it's short and usually the themes inspire me but I want more time for Glee but IDK.
renrenren3: (Default)
My plans to write write write keep getting thwarted. Yesterday I missed my alarm, got up at 11am when my neighbours had a row that was even louder than usual, turned on my computer and ended up researching gay marriage law in the US. Then my muse deserted me and I ended up watching a couple of Castle episodes.

Then I had to leave for this Christmas dinner, which was... nice, I suppose, but not as memorable as the others (for better or worse). I was stuck at the far end of my group of friends, the two girls in front of me spent the evening locked in conversation with each other and I didn't know the girl next to me. Then I found out she was an Erasmus student from Germany and she clearly didn't know many people, so I thought it'd be nice to talk with her a bit. Except... I suck at making casual conversation with strangers. I spent most of the dinner staring at the ceiling and thinking of a good conversation opener. In the end I did manage to strike a conversation with her and we talked quite a lot, and after dinner was over we got up so I could talk to some people I hadn't seen in ages. But ugh, the awkwardness at the beginning.

Also, about awkwardness. While we were walking back (I slept at Irene's as usual) I accidentally hummed "Teenage Dream" and didn't know how to justify a sudden Katy Perry obsession. Then this morning I found out she watches Glee too. Which... unexpected, but cool.
On the train ride back I managed to write part of my [livejournal.com profile] thegameison_sh entry and was about to finish it after I caught up with my flist... but then...

THE CLIP OF BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE FROM 2X10 APPEARED AND I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO STOP SQUEEING EVER SINCE. SERIOUSLY, I CAN'T EVEN STOP SMILING. I'VE WATCHED IT LIKE 4 TIMES ALREADY AND IT MAKES ME SO RIDICULOUSLY HAPPY, JUST... HEE. BOYS. FLAIL. CUTENESS. PANDAS. POINSETTIAS. SENSE. AM I MAKING ANY. WHO CARES. LOOPING IT ONCE MORE.
renrenren3: (Default)
First things first, bask in the awesomeness that's the newest Thrones trailer. One minute long and a bunch of new footage, though of course the most interesting bits are the ones that flash past in a split second. And there should be a 15-minutes "behind the scenes" special next week that I'm really looking forward to.



It's actually happening. Spring 2011. SPRING 2011.



My new to-do list. )

Of course there's also the song meme that never ends. Since last time I posted about it I wrote a couple more ficlets:
Jean Tannen (Gentleman Bastard) - Give Us A Little Love for [livejournal.com profile] amaranthine3
Castiel (SPN) - I won't say I'm in love for [livejournal.com profile] batgurl88


And the more attentive of you might have noticed that I took the Merlin/Inception crossover off the list. That's because [livejournal.com profile] frantic_allonsy wrote it already. So... yeah. Not the very same plot I'd have written, but it's not as if I'd have ever gotten around to writing it. And they did. And it was epic.
So yeah. Go read it.

Also if you could stop by [livejournal.com profile] camelot_fics and vote for our first challenge, there's a lot of cute entries and they're all short so it shouldn't take you much. I could use some more votes.
renrenren3: (Default)
I think I'm (not so) slowly losing my mind. Having Teenage Dream in loop might or might not factor into it. I swear I wasn't so obsessed when I watched 2x06. It's just, I have no clue, it's like a virus. My sister isn't helping either. Usually when I'm on Planet Squee and start flailing like a madwoman she glares at me and makes me stop. Instead this time she made me watch the original video and this video of Chris Colfer being kind of a ninja. This from the lady who used to viciously steal the mouse away from me whenever I tried to go on Youtube. So, yeah, now we're teaming up and doing twice the flailing.


Eeepic slooo-mooo ruuunniiiiiiiiiiing!

There were other relevant things in my life, like an exam and watching Rapunzel and it's my sister's birthday tomorrow. Oh, and I'm trying to compile all entries for R1 of [livejournal.com profile] camelot_fics and it's taking me way longer than I thought. Meh. I guess I should get the voting post up before starting to write one of the two Kurt/Blaine ehpeek fluff plots that I'm concocting. Yeah, not even trying any more to pretend I'm not a shipper, though it's weird to start shipping them during an episode where Blaine didn't even appear. It's marginally weirder than starting to ship Merlin and Arthur before watching a single episode.
renrenren3: (Default)
I'm reduced to a whimpering pile of goo and even hugging Ducky for comfort isn't helping. Why can't it be next week now. I don't even know why I'm so hooked on Glee.

Lots and lots and lots of spoilers for Furt. )

I'll shut up now and go do something productive.
renrenren3: (Default)
The poll did, incredibly, help me get things done! I finished both the regular and the bonus challenges for this month at [livejournal.com profile] thegameison_sh and wrote a couple more ficlets for the song meme:
Ianto Jones (Torchwood) - I'm Yours by The Script for [livejournal.com profile] denija
The Doctor (Doctor Who) - If I Could Turn Back Time for [livejournal.com profile] ladybracknell


Also, hell yes! The Vampire Diaries is starting to get interesting. For the first time I'll be looking forward to the next episode which is... 1x05 I think. Twilight references ftw.

And I went back to [livejournal.com profile] westerosorting after the longest hiatus ever, I missed that comm. ASOIAF used to be my only fandom last year, I'm not sure how I managed that with my short attention span. Still, it was fun. And I might even get to join the RP again with Petyr. ♥



To-do list )

GAIZ! GAIZ! MORE PROMO PHOTOS FROM MERLIN 3X13 HAVE SURFACED AND YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS!

THERE'S ALSO ONE WITH THE KNIGHTS + MERLIN, FOR THOSE OF US WHO'VE BEEN WONDERING WHERE HE WAS!

CLICK CLICK CLICK! )


Also I've started watching The Vampire Diaries in the hope it'll distract me from the sad, sad lack of Glee until next week.
So far it's... meh. Apart from Damon, who saved two episodes just by showing up and trolling everyone else. And Edward Stefan needs to stop frowning at the world and try some other expression. He might want to look dark and broody, but I think he's just constipated. Also I can't watch him make that face any more without laughing, and since he does that face all the time... yeah, I laugh in all of his scenes.
But even tropes says that it gets better after episode 4 or 5, so I'll go watch the next episode now.

THERE WAS ALSO SOMETHING ELSE I NEEDED TO SAY BUT I'VE BEEN HOPELESSLY DISTRACTED. FFFFFFF BOYS.
renrenren3: (Default)
So. I'm done posting the fic. I'm done posting the fanmix. I'm officially done with everything Woo-related. Damn, why didn't I think of making a Woo tag? I think I'm out of excuses and I should start working on some new project. Any new project. I have too many.

Anyway, I took the chance to gather all my plot bunnies together. They're really a lot. I love them all, of course, you can never have too many plot bunnies.
So, uhm, you get to tell me what to do. I expect about two people to take part in this poll, one of them being me, so it's your once in a lifetime chance to influence me FOREVER!
Also there's still a couple of minutes before dinner and I was bored.

[Poll #1646368]


Yeah, the Merlin/Power Rangers manip didn't make the poll because I'M DOING IT ANYWAY. It's srs bsns.

Also ffff when does Glee air? I need a new episode. Or fic recs. Or both.
renrenren3: (Default)
So one of my professors is pregnant and we were hoping that her course would be taken over by a colleague next semester. Because she's a complete bitch and likes to make us suffer by making everyone fail her exam. No, seriously, a friend of mine already tried her exam six times and it's the only one she still needs to graduate. So we were all hoping she'd get out of the way and her course would go to someone who'd give us the chance to take the exam both in January and February, like we can for all other courses. And we'd talked with her replacement who seemed fine with it.

Except I just got a mail saying that she put her foot down and said we absolutely can't have more than one date. Shouldn't she be feeling, dunno, motherly and nice and things like that? It's not even as if we like taking her exam multiple times just to waste her time, I'd be more than happy to pass it at my first try and move on. Bitch.

On a definitely happier note, EW published 10 promo photos for A Game of Thrones and I approve of them. Especially this one of Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, who's just fuelling my obsession for pretty men with swords.

Actually all the photos look great, apart from the ones of Kit Harrington. I can't say I'm a fan of his moustache, but maybe he'll grow on me. He does play one of my favourite characters.

I hope there's some hi-res version coming soon. I need to find the fandom, it's finally time to start iconing my heart out.

With all this flailing, I almost forgot: I got my assignment from [livejournal.com profile] sherlockmas and it looks awesome. Can't wait to start writing. ♥
I miiight need some help with police procedures though, is anyone willing to help a girl?
renrenren3: (Merlin * woo)
WARNING: EXCESSIVE HOTNESS. Also Merlin S3 spoilers. But, honestly, you need to see this photo if you haven't already. )

I DON'T EVEN KNOW ANY MORE. THERE WAS SOME STUFF I NEEDED TO POST ABOUT REAL LIFE AND THINGS THAT SEEMED IMPORTANT BUT I'VE DECIDED THAT MY MAIN PRIORITY RIGHT NOW IS FLAILING AND TRYING TO REMEMBER HOW TO BREATHE.

HOW DO YOU EVEN BREATHE.

THIS IS JUST.

IDK.

I'LL BE IN MY BUNK.
