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)
Sooo I posted my Charles/Erik mix last night after winning my battle with megaupload, and somehow it went over my customary 5 comments. I'm so happy people like it. And at the same time I'm horribly depressed at my own song choices because some of them are just SO SAD. DD: WHERE ARE YOUR ADOPTED KITTIES ERIK. I AM NOT PLEASED BY THE LACK OF KITTIES. THERE BETTER BE KITTIES IN THE SEQUEL, AND SNOGGING, AND CUDDLING, AND PICNICS.
Anyway. I'm already working on a v2 since I keep finding more and more Charles/Erik songs and I like getting depressed because of sad songs.


I'd already mentioned this one, but let's do it once more with pretties. Do the big bang with me? :D


My favourite fest is back! There are at least 4 prompts I'd love to write already, and it's only been open for a few days. I'm so excited.


Also I watched Rizzoli & Isles over the weekend. WHY DIDN'T ANYONE WARN ME OF THE CLIFFHANGER. I hate it when series do that. :|
renrenren3: (Merlin * gif)
From fmylife.com (which is the greatest plot source right after Texts From Last Night):
Today, I woke up next to my best friend after lots of drinking and the best sex I've ever had in my life. The only problem is we're both straight males. FML

My mind went there immediately, only I can't write this myself.

...Or can I?


ALSO: GLEE TONIGHT! I wonder if I can catch a livestream. I need the Warblers covering Animal.
renrenren3: (DGM * Allen & Tyki)
Happy new year, f-list! I assume everyone's following the Gregorian calendar here, though you never know. My high school history and philosophy teacher used to be a fan of the French Revolution's calendar. That man is awesome. Anyway that's neither here nor there.

I JUST WANTED TO INFORM YOU ALL THAT I WROTE FIC IN WHICH ARTHUR AND MERLIN HAVE A KID NAMED EDITH.
There would sparkly text here but I can't be arsed to find the code because I spent the last forever putting up voting for [livejournal.com profile] camelot_fics. Actually it'd be helpful if you voted too, you can vote even if you're not a member. Though, well, the entries are all kind of depressing. My fault for choosing a depressing theme, I suppose.
BUT! LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT THE EDITHFIC! ACTUALLY LEMME LINK YOU TO IT AND IT'LL BE QUICKER:
The littlest Pendragon * Merlin * Arthur/Merlin, Uther * PG * ~3,000 words

Also I finally can de-anon for [livejournal.com profile] thegameison_sh's challenge... I wrote a zombie!fic for it. IDK why since I'm not much a fan of zombies but it was the first thing that came to my mind.
Hold on for your life * Sherlock * John Watson * PG * ~800 words

I'd steal the long-ass end-of-year fanfic meme but it's long and I have stuff to do (like sleeping) so I'll just do this instead. Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] hiza_chan because she steals my memes so turnabout's fair play. ♥

Give me a pairing and I'll tell you:
1. When or if I started shipping them:
2. What I think their challenge is:
3. What makes me happy about them:
4. What makes me sad about them:
5. What moment I wish had never happened:
6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other:
7. My happily ever after for them:

There was a second meme here but I forgot I'd already done it. Haha fail.
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: (Merlin * Lady Vivian)
So I actually had a pretty good day after my previous derp-filled entry, up until a couple of minutes ago when I finished the third fic of the day and my f-list told me that Yahoo is shutting down delicious. To which I can only say, why?
I've exported my bookmarks and waiting for fandom to reach some general consensus as to where to migrate. I liked delicious because almost everyone had an account and it was easy to save, tag and rec fics. Damn you Yahoo for killing off services that actually work.

Anyway, as someone would say, POSITIVITY! I'VE FINISHED MY YULETIDE FIC, DAMMIT!
I started this morning with a file full of random bits of characterization and vague mentions of what would be going on in the fic in no chronological order, and the finished fic was betaed and submitted to the archive before dinner. Maybe karma thought it was time I found a competent beta again. Dunno.
But whew, that's one more story done and I like the result. And that's the last I'll say about Yuletide before 2011, otherwise I'll slip and reveal what I wrote.

Also: song meme, v. Merlin.
Gwaine(/Lancelot[/Gwen]) - Every little thing she does is Magic by The Police [livejournal.com profile] redjumper
Vivian(/Morgana) - Falling by Florence + The Machine [livejournal.com profile] teaboytoaliens

It's... probably best if you don't ask me about the pairings. Gwen isn't actually in the first one but I needed a "she" somewhere. Also I made myself sad by making Viv sad.
(Only 2 fics to go now.)
renrenren3: (Merlin * Lady Vivian)
The house thing is still going through. Yesterday we went to see it and it's... well... it's okay I suppose. Honestly, the family who lives there now keeps the place awfully, there's dog droppings in the courtyard and the steps of the stairs are all chipped and there's the world's biggest spiderweb in the cellar. But mum's already planning a list of everything that needs to be fixed and my uncle says it can be done. He's going to help my parents with the contract and all.
I think the place would be nice too, once it's fixed up. It's a very old house and I love that. I've always wanted to live in a place that had an upstairs and a downstairs, don't ask why. Plus my parents really want their own place. I just don't want to think about how long it'll take to make the house inhabitable.
Plus I really don't feel like moving again. I say again though it's been 10 years already, but I remember last time we moved it was between December 1999 and January 2000 and we had New Year's Eve with cardboard boxes in the living room. Eurgh.

Writing my fic for [livejournal.com profile] merry_merthur. I kind of regret signing up for this one because the minimum wordcount is 2,000 words and the prompts I got are all out of my comfort zone and I'm worried that it might come out forced.
At least I'm taking advantage of the fact that my thesis advisor hasn't replied to my mail yet so I have nothing better to do. Though I think next week I might have to start studying for January's exams. I just wish I knew which exams are in January and which in February. Oh well. When in doubt, write fic.
I just wish I wasn't so easily distracted by tvtropes.
Halfway through. Come on, me, the second half is the fun one. For a given value of fun.

Also I'm in dire need of new songs for my playlist, I'm in that depressing phase in which I play the same 5 songs over and over again and all the others sound just boring.

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: (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)
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: (Merlin * woo)
Reveals went up at [livejournal.com profile] merlin_muses, so I can say it now: mine was How To Woo Your Manservant. Though I think it was obvious, what with the abuse of the word "woo" and the reference to chicken and destiny in the summary. I'm predictable.
I finally got to post it under my own name then, and as soon as I'm done with the cover there will be a soundtrack for it. Featuring Lady Gaga, so you know it's all srs bsns and stuff.

Thing is, after all fics were posted I went back and checked, and nobody wrote the fic for Merlin and Morgana falling under a love spell. It was actually my first choice but someone claimed it before me. And then they didn't write it in time. I was really looking forward to it, but meh. At least I got to write Woo.

And now, kind of late but here's the last part of the fic recs. (The first two are under my fic recs tag, since my tags are organized, really. I just like to give them confusing names.) Just one because... I don't know, either I've become incredibly picky in the last month, or all the best fics were posted at the beginning and the last ones didn't live up to their standards.

Deny Thy Father * Arthur/Merlin * R * 26,624 words
Modern AU. Arthur walks out from his society wedding and Uther cuts him off from the inheritance. Arthur moves in with Morgana and her "plebeian" flatmates and falls in love with Merlin. You know the story. It's a decent read, though the plot isn't exactly original, it wins points because of the cat.

I can't believe it's over. Sadface. I'm even all caught up with Glee. ffff Kurt why so adorable? No idea what I'm going to watch next.
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.

Stuff.

renrenren3: (Text * Call Batman)
FIRST OF ALL WELCOME EVERYONE FROM THE CRAZY [livejournal.com 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.
2. SHOW THAT LIST TO SOMEONE AND YOU DIE.
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.
HIZA I SWEAR YOUR FICLET IS COMING! Kinda sorta.

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

List! )

ALSO EVERYONE SHOULD JOIN [livejournal.com profile] sherlockmas BECAUSE I SAY SO AND BECAUSE I'M ENTERING TOO MANY EXCHANGES AND I NEED SOME COMPANY IN MY DESCENT INTO MADNESS.

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)
It's one of those days. I started off collecting all the songs for my ficmix (the [livejournal.com profile] merlin_muses-inspired one) and ended up with a Merlin fanmix and a Doctor Who one. I don't even.

Also, the name Merthur gives me shivers, but whatevs. Continuing with my tradition of holiday slash, I went and joined [livejournal.com profile] merry_merthur. And I think that's it for winter exchanges since I also want to join Yuletide (needneedneed some Temeraire and/or Locke Lamora fic) and I don't want to end up with too much stuff on my plate.

Though, there was that Sherlock exchange... derp derp.

SELF RESTRAINT, I HAVE NONE!

Also, wishing my professor would reply to my email before next Monday. :/
renrenren3: (SPN * hug)
Don't you just hate it when you read and re-read a fic, and have it betaed, and then have it betaed by someone else just to be 100% sure, and then you read it again a couple of weeks later and find there's still a couple of typos that somehow managed to elude you?

It drives me mad.


And here's the weekly dose of spoilerific squee. )
renrenren3: (Merlin * woo)
...MEME TIME!

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 [livejournal.com profile] hiza_chan because she's like the queen of memes or something:

1. Make a list of 15 characters.
2. SHOW THAT LIST TO SOMEONE AND YOU DIE.
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 [livejournal.com profile] thegameison_sh and the start of [livejournal.com profile] camelot_fics.
