No I didn't get my letter.

BUT.

I think it's coming? Because I kept trying to log in to see if my account had been activated and my letter was just late.

And it just happened.

So.

Aside from the fact that I flailed like a 11yo and still can't think straight.

Leave me your names and I'll add you?

I'm trying to be a good girl and actually wait for the letter, plus there's stuff I needed to do.

The long LJ entry to catch up with what's going on in my life will have to wait, though.

ETA: I'm SkyLight32 since apparently I forgot to say in my excitement

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: (SPN * not drunk enough)
For [livejournal.com profile] denija, who asked me about Accidental Superheroes (SPN, high school AU, vague Dean/Cas, PG, ~1,400 words). I apologize in advance for the last paragraph, I just have... a lot to say about this story.

The fic without commentary is here.

Batman and Superman )
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: (Text * Call Batman)
♥ I think I haven't posted in almost two months. It's all [livejournal.com profile] hogwartsishome's fault. They kidnapped me! They did it nicely, but still. I was all I'M NOT GOING TO BE SUCKED IN and then got sucked in anyway because I have no self-control. But it's fuuun~ and btw, hello new awesome friends from the Hogsmeade friending meme! :D :D
Also, hi to the people from the [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon! I got in Team Lust, which is the team with the MOST AWESOME PEOPLE EVER including some of my favourite M/A authors ever, this is going to be fun. I even get to google sex toys and call it research.

♥ Speaking of writing. I joined [livejournal.com profile] bigbangitalia, mostly because I want to get one of my long plots out of the way. It's just 10k words over the summer, so yeah. I already know I'm going to write in English and then translate it because I can't write in Italian. I just get stuck on the dialogue because I'm used to watching/reading things in English instead of the dub, I wrote some SPN/DW over the weekend and I was all BUT HOW DOES DEAN SAY "DUDE" IN ITALIAN? WHICH FUNNY WORDS CAN THE DOCTOR SAY IN ITALIAN?

Cut for talk of X-Men: First Class and veeery vague spoilers. Also my long-ass plot for an AU fic. )

♥ Yes, I needed to tell you that because 1) it's epic, 2) my brother contributed and 3) I hadn't written it down yet and I was in danger of forgetting. I'm also working on a fanmix for Charles and Erik, so I can get sad while listening to nice music too. I might need help in deciding what to write first. Or second, right after I finish this fic I've been working on since February. Numero Uno is the epic Dean/Cas post-S6 fix-it, or How Ren Wants S7 To Go. Like a proper Deus Ex Machina, God shows up to strip Cas of his pants his angelic powers after the events of S6's finale, so human!Cas is forced to roadtrip with Dean and Sam. Dean teaches him important human skills such as not getting his ass kicked by the monster of the week, showering, cheating at poker and blowjobs. Numero Due is a SPN high school AU. Don't judge me, though if you stuck with me through the rambles about Charles and Erik and kitties you probably won't. This can basically be summed up with Dean and Cas are high school students and they meet and they have sex. And I wrote a one-shot about them meeting here already, though obv it would need to be rewritten if I go with this story for the BB. Numero Tre is Harry/Draco, because idk. Apparently I've been cursed with plots for a pairing that I used to despise. Must be karma. It's just the typical post-book-7 EWE in which Harry and Ginny split up and Harry finds out that Malfoy isn't so evil after all and in the end they get together. So, f-list, if you stuck with Harry me until the very end, tell me what should I write. Numero Uno, Due, Tre or... idk, let's call it X?

♥ THERE IS ALSO SOME LONG-OVERDUE FLAILING ABOUT DOCTOR WHO BUT IT'S OVERDUE AS I SAID AND ANYWAY LONG POST IS LONG AND I WANT TO GO AND MAKE A CUP OF TEA, SO THERE.

Click me!

GO CLICK MY DRAGON EGG INSTEAD, IT'S A PRIZE FROM ONE OF [livejournal.com profile] hogwartsishome'S HOGSMEADE ACTIVITIES AND I HELPED BRAINSTORM IT. :D
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: (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: (Default)
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. )
renrenren3: (Default)
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. )
renrenren3: (Glee * Kurt & Blaine)
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. ♥
renrenren3: (Default)
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.
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.
renrenren3: (Default)

The Despicable Me livewatch was fuuun! And we're doing it again next week. And the week after.
Though I doubt we'll be able to top this movie, because MINIOOONNNSSSSSSS!

I reached the conclusion that everything can become a crossover with Merlin. It's like the ultimate wild card, maybe because you can argue that the boys could be reincarnated into almost any couple.

My brother is learning how to cook. I feel like I'm not doing anything to better myself as a human being, though I did almost finish floor B09 on Etrian Odyssey.

Also I made the fanmix I was talking about. Long Live is so perfect for the trio, it makes me want to cry and pat myself on the back for a job well done. (I do that, on occasion.) Spamming this image everywhere because it took me forever to make.

Fun fact: at first I hated both prompts. How is it that the most hated prompts end up being the ones that produce the best results? Like when I wrote for "MPREG", or that random Placebo quote.

And when I like the prompts to start with, they are a bitch to write. Assignment for [livejournal.com profile] sherlockmas, I'm glaring at you!
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)
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)
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.
