So Peyton's been bothering me to update my LJ but I felt like RL was too boring and sad and derpy to talk about that and I've already got Tumblr for fandom squee. Which mostly equates to writing inane strings of letters in the tags of gifsets that give me feels, but still. Isa posted this meme thingy today and I thought YES GOOD SHE'S GOING TO TELL ME WHAT TO TALK ABOUT. And thus an update was born.

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal.

7 questions )

Oh, also before I forget, Teen Wolf has eaten my mind.

Come join [ profile] beacon_hills, an interactive challenge comm for Teen Wolf. The very first Phase is starting soon STARTED A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO ACTUALLY and it'd be great fun to have some new member join in the fun.

There are two teams: team_argent and team_hale. They're both great teams, and which ever team you join EVEN THOUGH TEAM HALE IS TOTES THE BEST BECAUSE IT'S REN'S TEAM, you will be sure to have a great time competing.

Apply for a team and be sure to tell them I sent you.

Everyone's doing it, so end of the year (or beginning of the new year since I'm late as usual) fic meme!

I have no idea how many fics I've written this year, since sometimes I've counted two linked fics as chapters of a longer one and sometimes as two separate things. And I don't want to count the drabbles or the ones that suck too much. My writing folder is messy as fuck, as usual, and there's a bunch of things that I told myself I'd finish by the end of 2011 and look, it's 2012 and nothing's changed. Figures. I've also got one or three unfinished fic memes, but... yeah... my resolution this year is that I won't make any resolutions because they never work for me anyway. ONWARDS!


Plus all that half-finished crap, like the anonymous Merlin fic for the kink meme, the ASOIAF/SPN crossover, the longish Castle fic and a bunch of Italian ficlets plus the SPN/HP crossover I'll translate soon maybe. The grand total is about 50 fics and 140,000 words, give or take, which I like. Go me. And here's to 2012.

I'm in a crappy end of summer mood, mostly because I wasn't able to write anything for all these months and I'm sure I'll regret it as soon as uni starts again. Right now I'm considering dropping out of my two big bangs... I wrote only 5,000 words for the SPN one and the first draft if due in two weeks, and I'm thinking even if I submit something it'll be crap and nobody will comment on it. IDK

Cut because if you're not in HiH you might not care, and even then you might still not care. )

Now... uuuh... MEME! Stolen from [ profile] hiza_chan who has all the memes worth stealing, because it's been a while since I've done one of these.

Tropes fic meme: Below are some fandom cliches - pick one and give me a pairing (and some details if you want) and we'll see what I can come up with.

Each trope can only be picked once; pairings and fandoms can be re-used.

Preferred fandoms: Doctor Who, Torchwood, Merlin, Sherlock, SPN, Glee, Rizzoli & Isles, Castle, Hawaii Five-0, Suits, Inception, X-Men First Class, ASOIAF/Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Locke Lamora and other minor fandoms, feel free to order off the menu though you might end up with a big OOC clusterfuck if it's a fandom I'm not confident writing in.

o1. genderswap (Charles/Erik for the crazy kitten person)
o2. bodyswap (Jean/Locke for Hiza)
o3. drunk!fic (Charles/Erik for Hiza)
o4. huddling for warmth
o5. pretending to be married (Jaime/Brienne for Iris)
o6. secretly a virgin
o7. amnesia (Steve/Danny for Iris)
o8. cross-dressing
o9. forced to share a bed (Castle/Beckett for Isa)
1o. truth or dare
11. historical AU
12. accidental-baby-acquisition (Ryan/Esposito for Isa)
13. apocalypse fic (Jon & Arya for Hiza)
14. telepathy
15. high school/college AU

ETA: feel free to request more, usually what happens is that I fill 80% of requests and then get distracted and wander off and never finish, but I'll try to at least fill one request for everyone. \o/
renrenren3: (SPN * not drunk enough)
For [ 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: (Text * Call Batman)
Pick one of my stories, and I'll write a DVD-style commentary for it!

...I don't remember where I saw this meme first but I think it'd be fuuun.

I also saw the house today and the renovations are still ongoing and last week I helped my mum as she went shopping for sinks, but I really don't feel like writing about that so have a random Dean gif instead.

[ profile] maridichallenge has started their next event. 8 weeks, 4 teams, 2 prompts per week... I'm doomed.
renrenren3: (DRRR!! * gif)
First a couple of plugs.
♥ If you haven't already, it'd be really great if you could go here and say "I support Team Point Man" because we're almost in last place so yeah.
♥ I finally finished my Master fanmix! When is Doctor Who starting again? :|
Jumper livewatch tomorrow night.

Memes. Because it's been forever since my last meme and I miss them. The 5,000 questions meme doesn't count because it'll probably take me 3 years to finish it anyway.
All stolen from [ profile] sheswatching.

Name a fandom (or two if you reeeally can't choose) that I am familiar with and I will tell you:

My endgame OTP:
My original OTP:
My crack OTP:
My guilty pleasure OTP:
My anti-OTP:

First of all, I blame this on [ profile] fanficrants. There was this rant posted earlier today about someone taking a SGA fanfic and replacing the names and posting it as an Hawaii Five-0 fanfic, turning everyone OOC, and I wondered what would happen if I tried that. So, uhm, I took a couple of my shorter stuff and gave them a spin on the search-and-replace rollercoaster of life. I might also talk funny because I'm sleep deprived.
So, below the cut are 5 awesome new stories for Castle, Supernatural, Psych, Sherlock, Hawaii Five-0 that are actually old stories with the names replaced but sssh it's not plagiarism if I recycle my old stories! See, even if I don't have time to write because of exams, I can still produce new fic. They took about 5 minutes each because I actually went and fixed some small details that might have been too much of a dead giveaway. Like a patronus in a pretend!Supernatural fic. Trololol.
Cookies if you can guess the original fandom, though it doesn't count if you remember the original fandom from having read the original fic when I posted it. Usually I get told I have a good grasp of characterization so this should be easy. Ish.


Look at that, 5 fics in just one night! I'm awesome, Y/Y? Also I watch too many cop shows.
renrenren3: (DGM * Allen & Tyki)
Have you got any idea how difficult it is to get a good image of a sprig of mistletoe? Seriously. Try looking on Google, over half the hits you get for "mistletoe" are actually images of holly. I even tried in Italian, no luck. I'm no plant expert myself and even I know the basics of the age-old kissing tradition:
✔ white berries✘ red berries
✔ rounded leaves✘ pointy leaves
✔ mistletoe✘ holly

See? Idiot-proof. I suppose if it's just for the sake of a snog it wouldn't matter if it was a cabbage, but I want to do this properly. So I went and yanked this nice little image from Subeta (of all places) and now that we're all set we can start!

multi-fandom kiss under the mistletoe
Prompt me any two characters from a fandom of mine and I will write you a ficlet in which they kiss under the mistletoe.

Clicky for a list of fandoms. )
renrenren3: (Default)
I kind of saved these memes for a rainy day. It's raining now. Also, integrals are killing me.

Meme numero uno )

Meme numero due )

Meme numero tre )

Also, have an out-of-context image of Doumeki:

No, he doesn't really say that, but it was the first thing that came to my sleep-addled brain when I saw the panel. Staying up until 3am to read all the last volumes that I never got around to reading is probably not the best decision I've ever made.
renrenren3: (DGM * Allen & Tyki)
Seriously, real life can go fuck itself at the moment.

I'm finally done with [ profile] hiza_chan's ficlet from the song meme! Character #13 was Locke Lamora and I'll be very surprised if there's anyone else on my flist who's into the books, but I'm happy I got to write him. :D Plus you get a second character (I WONDER WHO THAT WILL BE!) so you don't get to complain. *insert evil cackle here*
I found the song strangely appropriate for Locke, plus the fandom is sadly non-existent so I had to do something longer than a comment-fic. Set before The Lies of Locke Lamora which is the first book in the series, very minor spoilers for the first chapters. Everyone should read the books because they are awesome.
Posted separately because it got longish and I decided it deserved full fic status so it goes into my archive.

FIRST OF ALL WELCOME EVERYONE FROM THE CRAZY [ profile] merlin_land_ot FRIENDING MEME! I'm totally friending everyone I wasn't already friends with because it was the greatest thing ever.

And speaking of memes, since I was talking about this with Jen earlier:
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!!

Yeees, it's the one I've already posted before but since I only got one reply (#13) and I've friended like 12 new people since then I figured it might be worth a shot to try and get your interest again. The fandoms are Merlin, Doctor Who, Torchwood, SPN, The Big Bang Theory, Inception, ASOIAF, Temeraire, Locke Lamora. And also Castle which I totally forgot about.

#14 is still open! Not that you probably know that character anyway. :|

List! )


And no, I still haven't watched Merlin, though I did watch SPN but I keep forgetting to post about it because I find the vampire plot kinda boring. Also watched Children of Earth today. Russel T. Davies owes me three hours of my life back. And I'm just 4 episodes away from finishing Doctor Who S5, what am I going to do after? D:

Oh, I see it's midnight right now. Here, have a totally useless manip:
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.
renrenren3: (Merlin * woo)

Commentfic meme. Funfunfun. Blame it for this entry's shortness, I've been writing for that instead of finishing this meme. Oh well. I also think it's the first time in months I wrote het. Kinda sorta.

Day 29 - What ship had the best proposal?

Ed/Winry from Fullmetal Alchemist.

"I'll give you half my life, so give me half of yours!" Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww!
It helps that I've loved them from the get-go and I'd been praying for them to get together for about half the series. And Ed delivered an awesome proposal and they had epilogue babies and all was well with the world. ♥

Day 30 - Your favorite ship forever and ever and ever?

Merlin/Arthur. Three months isn't much to decide and I don't know if it'll be forever and ever because I don't see the future, but I do love those boys and given the extent to which they dragged me into the fandom I don't think I'm very likely to find another favourite ship any time soon. There isn't any other pairing I've written so much fic about, and soon there won't be any other pairing I've read so much fic about. There's just something about them. Ask me the same question next year and we'll see, but for now... I'm off writing more fic.
renrenren3: (SPN * not drunk enough)
Since nobody replied to the meme (sadface) I amused myself by compiling this non-exhaustive list or tropes that apply to me. In 3rd person.

Now for Day 27 & Day 28 of the meme... )

Incidentally, it looks like the next show in my watch list will be The Big Bang Theory, on account of lots of people in my class at uni liking it. Geek show, joy! (Nevermind that I'm one myself.)
And I've watched almost all of this season's new anime, apart from maybe Togainu no Chi, but only because my brother is still debating whether to watch it or not. I bet he won't, or if he does he'll drop it at once. Nothing special so far.
renrenren3: (Merlin * gif)
So yesterday I stayed up until past 4am. The Den of Iniquity does this to me. Also gives me the tendency to post in capslock and talk about robot heads. Seriously, Stonehenge Apocalypse wins some special prize as most ludicrous catastrophic film ever. (Title previously held by some film in which the Earth was about to be destroyed by microwaves.) At least now I have a quote in the header instead of filler text.

I also watched the Dark Knight finally. But meh. The Joker was creepy, which was good, but he was also creepy, so he scared the crap out of me. So during the best scenes I was too chicken to watch the screen.
Still want to re-watch Inception. My parents saw it last night too, but mum didn't really understood about limbo. She missed just why the ending was a mind-screw. She said she was happy it ended so well! (To which, me and my siblings explained all the different interpretations and she said derp derp.)

Merlin 3x05

Baww, Colin! )

Day 23 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out great?

Sam/Dean/Castiel/Gabriel. SPN spoilers. )

Day 24 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out badly?

Arthur/Merlin/Morgana. Merlin spoilers. )
