...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.

Not only I got a story idea for the next issue of [livejournal.com profile] bb_shousetsu... I got ideas for the next two issues. Three actually, considering I've known what to write for the Wild Wild West issue for months. Somehow, their deadlines are a great encouragement for me to actually write all the original plot bunnies I have sitting around. I just wish I had time to write.

I didn't even make a reaction post for tv shows this week, and I totally should have. Hawaii Five-0 was epic. Steve and Danno's bromance reached new levels of awesome. (This is totally not a spoiler because it happens IN EVERY EPISODE.) In the opening scene, you can't tell me that they weren't on a date. I might have a thing for disheveled!Danny. The scene in the pawn shop had me laughing so much, there were tears in my eyes.

Glee 2x13 spoilers and 2x14 preview. )

Thank you everyone who replied to my post yesterday, it was a bad moment and you helped make it better. You guys are awesome. ♥

Now let's talk about happier things. Suddenly, new eps air! Gifs! Squee! Incoherent flailing!

Spoilers. )
renrenren3: (Glee * Kurt & Blaine)
You know how most times I'll look forward to an episode and read spoilers as they trickle in and watch teasers and speculate what might happen and think it'll be epic?

And I get my hopes too high and when the episode airs it's never ever nearly as epic as I expected.

Well, screw that. I just watched the Glee Superbowl episode and it was beyond epic.

Spoilers, gifs and whatnot. )

This is hilarious - one of my Merlin fics was translated into Chinese. A couple of girls contacted me on ff.net weeks ago and I'd almost forgot about it, and then yesterday they emailed me the link. It's almost surreal. And it makes me feel guilty because I'm not posting on ff.net any more. But then again I'm almost not even writing any more so yeah.

Apart from the crack!Disney/ASOIAF crossover. I promised I'd write that one and I'm writing that one. And the steampunk short, obv. And [livejournal.com profile] kurt_blaine just started posting fics from their exchange and I've written for that too. But apart from that, nothing, I swear.

Speaking of Glee, it kills me that the new ep is airing tonight. Can't wait for it, the hiatus has been killing me. I'm so glad we're back to a normal schedule again, I missed all my regular shows. Plus the latest eps of SPN and Big Bang Theory killed me of funny. ♥

This afternoon I'm saying "screw you" to study. Hawaii Five-0 aired last night. I cannot concentrate if there's epic shit sitting on my hard disk waiting to be seen.

When was the last time I made a reaction post? )

I wish I could have watched Castle already too. They've been teasing us with the BIG SPOILER for months, though I bet in the end they'll go with Status Quo Is God.

After a year, I finally finished Empire of Ivory. I read it in one sitting too, though I found myself liking the minor characters more and more. I wept for the lack of Granby through most of the book. And please tell me that Riggs reappears at some point and didn't just fall off the face of Earth. Novik has this alarming tendency of forgetting about some characters, whenever she bothers to give them a personality at all. I need to find solace in fanfic.
I expect it'll take me a year or so to get to Victory of Eagles. I already cheated and read most of the Granby bits though.

In totally unrelated news I'm still laughing at the fact that Chris Colfer it tweeting to Nina Dobrev. I want a Glee/Vampire Diaries crossover now. Possibly with Damon and Stefan facepalming at the impromptu musical numbers that keep happening.

Comic rant

My newest thread on [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants has more replies than anything I ever wrote. Also I pissed off more people today than during the debate about crucifixes. The subject? Comic sans.

LAYDEEZ, COME AND HUG ME! I'VE BEEN CALLED MEAN BY PEOPLE OVER THE INTERNET AND WON'T BE ABLE TO SLEEP TONIGHT!

Oh yeah, the original point of this post was that Chris and Darren are going to be on the cover of EW and I can't wait for scans, but in the meantime this is keeping me pretty amused.
renrenren3: (Glee * Kurt & Blaine)

I LOVE HIM SFM. SERIOUSLY. JUST. HIS FACE. HIS ADORABLE SURPRIZED FACE.
I don't even care about awards but I'd have been willing to give up sleep and pull an all-nighter if I didn't have an exam this week. Also there was no reliable live-stream to be found. But I was so happy to wake up this morning and see all the interviews. TEARS IN MY EYES.

Cheered me up from the crap that is life around exam time, that and my daily episode of Criminal Minds. Oh hey, I think I might be obsessed with yet another show.
Though not as obsessed as with Hawaii Five-0, which HAS A NEW EP AIRING TONIGHT. The wait is over! \o/

Yes they are married. There is evidence of it. Also Kono is badass.

Lastly: LAYDEEZ! IT'S MONDAY NIGHT AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. If you don't I'm going to tell you anyway.

It's our weekly movie livewatch, and this week it's Ninn's turn and she picked Anastasia. Click the gif to get to her open post and join the squee. It's at 8pm GMT, in a bit less than three hours, but there's the ever-helpful countdown if you're timezone-challenged like moi.

I hate this upcoming-end-of-holidays mood. I can't even study properly because I don't want to ruin the last two "free" days. Plus I hate geometry, I studied for that exam three times already.

Also I can't be arsed to post stories on ff.net any more. They always mess up the formatting in my documents and they have too many restrictions on summaries and titles and the readers don't understand simple concepts like "complete" and "one-shot". On the other hand there are a lot of nice people who aren't on LJ or AO3 so IDK. I just don't feel like uploading 6-7 stories there tonight.

OH YEAH. I posted/am posting a lot of stories that I had lying around, including the polished version of the first fills for the mistletoe meme. It might be because I need to boost my wordcount for this nifty little event:


To my Italian-speaking f-list: come, la vostra non ha il bollino Chiquita? Vale millemila punti in più!
To my non-Italian-speaking f-list: it's probably better if you don't google any foreign word you don't know, especially from work or where a parent/sibling/child/significant-other/anyone-really can see you.

Also, admire more shininess!
This is all thanks to [livejournal.com profile] 3x9_lover who gave me the idea of using Glee for prompt 71 (before, I'd started writing two Vampire Diaries ficlets and scrapped them both).
TIVIBÌ CARISSIMA! ♥ Even though I had to write Dave "Creepyass" Karofsky for this.

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.

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!

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.

It's over. Guys, remember my list of fics/fanmixes/etc that I was planning? I've just been assaulted by the thrid Kurt/Blaine plotbunny in as many days. Everything else is so not happening. I'm getting a couple of exchange fics out of the way, and then Kurt/Blaine it is. It's not as if I can do anything else before getting that out of my system.

By the way, anyone up for betaing one of my ficlets? They're ~1,000 words each. Fandoms are Professor Layton, Phoenix Wright, Sherlock and Castle. Aaaand there's more crossovers than it's healthy for me to write. Thus, I have a problem finding betas.

By the by the way, Etrian Odyssey is fun.
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.
