Iiit's link dump time! The new issue of SSBB is out and it's the steampunk one! I'm so excited about all the other stories~
Mine is this one lol obvious pseudonym is obvious and I'd tell everyone to read it because it's awesome good decent, but there's a R-rated scene at the end (obviously), so yeah. Typical of me, I never write stuff that I could, for example, show to my grandma with impunity.
Actually I did write a couple of PG-rated fics for Glee and Vampire Diaries, but they sucked so much I don't even feel like spamming those links and crossposting them around.

By the way, how awesome was Damon in the last episode? And everyone else too. I love them sfm.
And I decided that Ian Somerhalder is the other half of my dream Good Omens cast. There would be pictures here that prove my point, except I can't because it would be terribly distracting to look up pictures of him. Or pictures of anyone really, but particularly of him.

This Sherlock comic on DA made me laugh so much. WARNING - it's a crossover with Disney.

Looking forward to April 17th! )

Now for a bit of TMI. Skip this bit if talking about wet dreams squicks you. )

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 [ 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. :|

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 [ profile] amaranthine3
Castiel (SPN) - I won't say I'm in love for [ profile] batgurl88

And the more attentive of you might have noticed that I took the Merlin/Inception crossover off the list. That's because [ 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 [ 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.

Since I got back into the ASOIAF fandom I decided to retrieve all my old fics from 2008-2009 and post them in my fanfic journal. And it's driving me mad. I'm now insanely happy that when I started writing fic fairly often I also started a fic journal and tagged everything. Because I used to just... post fics here and there, with no titles and no summaries and no coherence, and it's driving me mad. How did I even manage.

Anyway, I posted six fics today. I still have a document of 10,000 words with all the others. This is insane.

Also, ffff Vampire Diaries. It really got better around episode 5. Too bad a character I liked had to die in the meantime, but still. Awesome ep.

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 [ 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)

Ah, first of all, welcome all new friends from the friending meme! ♥ I actually made some new friends this time, maybe because since it was my meme I felt I couldn't just lurk like I usually do. Uhm, yay me. So the first entry you'll get from me is something with a misleading title that's actually a meme.
Stolen from [ profile] hiza_chan because she's like the queen of memes or something:

1. Make a list of 15 characters.
3. Let the people of your FList comment one (1) number and one song they've chosen.
4. WITHOUT SHOWING YOUR LIST, write something about the character, using the song to inspire yourself.
5. You done? Good. Now you can go and show which character or couple it was.
6. It's a meme with a twist!!

Fandoms are: Merlin, Doctor Who, Torchwood, SPN, The Big Bang Theory, Inception, ASOIAF, Temeraire, Locke Lamora. I've even tried to pick characters outside of my comfort zone. It is a pain to leave out Arthur and Petyr...

Maybe this'll get me writing before the next round of [ profile] thegameison_sh and the start of [ profile] camelot_fics.

Okay, now that my ehpeek literary endeavour is done, I can return to the usual memeage. I think I'll do two of these every day from now on, since they're long overdue and I'm getting bored. WTF short attention spam.
But before that let me tell you about this season's anime, or at least those I watched so far. Kind of spoilery, but it's just the first episode of each series anyway. But first some random linkage.

There's more behind-the-scenes videos from HBO and I think it's the first time I've been so interested in an elevator.

Plus Colin and Bradley are being ridiculously adorable, again. My favourite part is Colin saying "dragonfruit" and Bradley snorting with laughter. So much love.

And the 2 minutes trailer for the SPN anime. Engrish Carry On, some interesting action scenes, Dean looks like Tristan from Yu-Gi-Oh but I'll try to overlook that for the sake of more monster hunting.

Autumn 2010 anime
(or, having big-name seiyuu and sparkles won't redeem your crappy series)
((in some sort of order from awesum to crap))

Cut because I'm verbose. )

Day 21 - A pairing you like and no one else understands why?

Ciel/Finny from Kuroshitsuji. Originally created because I was growing tired of Sebastian/Ciel, especially with creepy!pedo!stalking!abusive!Sebby, but the more I think about it the more I wish someone had written it. They seem like they'd be adorable together. Finny is fiercely attached to Ciel, I could totally see him going all protective if his master was in danger. Sebastian would have nothing on an enraged Finny.
The sad thing is, the Kuroshitsuji fandom is in a sad, sad state. Here's some stats from The Pit. About 3,000 Kuroshitsuji fics (all ratings), 2,300 in English. Out of those, how many with Finny? 36. Thirty-six. And this is Finny, someone who's been around since chapter 1, fairly relevant to the plot, has been to a greater or lesser degree in every story arc. TA grand-total of two of these fics (both one-shots) are Finny/Ciel. I be sad. Okay, I'm at fault too because the only Kuro fic I wrote was Ciel/Sebby too, but I'm still complaining.

Day 22 - A pairing you hate and no one else understands why?

Roy/Ed from FMA. First thing, it gets in the way of my OTPs. Second thing I don't really see the chemistry there. They're probably the most popular pairings in the fandom but I'd rather stay clear of them. And then the age difference really turns me off, there's like 15 years between them and Ed is in his teens. I don't really want to think of Roy as a child molester, plus there's the unfortunate implications that come with abuse of power since Roy is Ed's superior in the military.
So, uh, no. Part of why I love FMA but won't get into the fandom, I don't like most of their favourite pairings. Likewise with Ed/Al, at least they're of an age but ick. They're one couple where I love them together, I love their interaction, but as friends. Yep, sometimes my slash goggles fail me.

❧ What's with my favourite characters always dying? Okay, mostly everyone dies. But still. Dammit. I'm not amused.

❧ What was amusing was, instead, re-watching Merlin 2x04. "Lancelot". I must say I was even less impressed that I was the first time around, Lancelot's own acting is less than stellar and both he and Gwen have really ridiculous lines. And chickification is rampant.
The one fun thing was, in the scene where Arthur and his men find Morgana's party, one of the knights in the background trips over his cloak. It was awesome. I was all, "Hey wait, I thought I saw that guy trip, go back a few seconds," and he really did! We watched it three times. Best. Scene. Ever. I've always said that those cloaks are dangerous. Seriously, what kind of douche would prance around with a cloak (or a dress) several feet longer than normal?

❧ The costumes I'm really looking forward to are those for A Game Of Thrones. The behind-the-scenes clips really have me looking forward to it, seems like they put a ton of attention into details. I'm not sold on Cersei's hairstyle during the tourney, it makes her look so old, but it was just a couple of frames anyway so maybe it'll look better in the finished version. And Jon looks a bit too scruffy, but then again I have this ~*sparkly*~, bishounen-pretty vision of him anyway that's totally my inner fangirl speaking, so I'm not really one to speak. But yep, definitely looking forward to this.

❧ Last three episodes of SPN tomorrow, then I'm all ready for S6. Kind of. And ready to make a start on Doctor Who.

Cut for stuff you probably don't care about. )

I swear there was a point to this post. Oh, sure. GRRM is having a busy week announcing the casting results for the HBO series "Game of Thrones" which should debut in 2011 - and finally the one I was waiting for has been announced as well! Not Simm as I'd hoped, but judging from the fan reactions I think this is a pretty good fit. I wish there was some LJ community to fangirl with, or at least someone who made icons. I desperately need a Petyr icon. Not that I'm watching the series just because of that one character, eh!

Then again, I'm mostly a liar.
