This was going to be a moody and srs post about how Downton Abbey is crushing my heart into tiny pieces every week, but then Sas happened.

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.

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 [ 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.
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: (Pornathon * Team Lust)
Strange things are happening today. And I'm not talking about my submission for the pornathon this week, though, well, that's strange too. My muse derailed me into writing something totally different from what I had planned, which meant it came out all rambly and incoherent, and also 800 words so I had to cut 80 and I hate having to do cuts so I just kinda deleted paragraphs at random. Also when I realized I was at 700 words I hastily hurried to conclude but I'd barely written any porn, so. Basically, I wrote pornless porn. IDK IDK.

Also I found myself in my wips too derpworthy to live folder and found a complete fic. For Ace Attorney. I'm not even in the fandom any more. I think I wrote it for the kink meme over a year ago and then didn't post it because it went in a different way from the prompt. Or because I was ashamed of the porn. WHICH IDK SELF IT'S A KINK MEME. Whatever, I no longer have shame and I need the wordcount for [ profile] fiumidiparole so I'm doing some quick editing and posting.

But the point of this post is another. I might or might not have accidentally signed up for an X-Men Big Bang. (Hint: I did.)
[ profile] xmenbigbang. There should probably be a pretty banner but I can't find it and I'm sleepy and lol whatever, I can pimp properly later.

What else did I forget about? There's the Tourney of the Hand over at [ profile] westerosorting and I still haven't recovered from Hogsmeade, I'm all excited about Pottermore even though we know next to nothing about it yet, and I fell in love with One Cell In The Sea. It's probably the only album I've ever listened to in order, without skipping tracks, multiple times. Hearts in my eyes. ♥

Back to editing shameful porn now.
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: (Merlin * gif)
As promised, ze link to ze livewatch! Also I'm putting together the entries from [ profile] camelot_fics for voting but I kept getting distracted by Pat's picspam. And I'm also digging my own grave with the prompts, I keep picking shit that's uber-hard for me to write. And this time one of the prompts was AU so I created yet another AU that I want to expand but I know I never will because I HAVE NO TIME OR WILLPOWER. :|


I might have stolen that gif.
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.

renrenren3: (Glee * epic fail)
Some weeks ago I ran into this guy who played clarinet with me in middle school and I hadn't seen him in a while so we said hi and I'd have asked him to get a coffee with me and catch up if it wasn't that he was late, I was late and we were in the middle of nowhere. (Thanks, campus comfortably located outside of civilization.) Then yesterday he sent me a message on Facebook asking how is my thesis going and we should meet up sometimes to catch up. And the only reason I'm bringing this up at all is because this is the closest I've gotten to a date in the past year. Which, needless to say, is sad. I need to meet new people, except I hate meeting new people.

My exam got pushed back to next week due to one of the professors being sick. Again. Poor man, I actually like him a lot. He's a decent person. But it's so difficult to be organized when the dates get moved around so much, and of course the more they push back the date the more I procrastinate.

Also it'd reeeally help if you went here and said "I support Team Point Man". It takes about 30 seconds and makes me happy and if you want I'll write you a drabble in exchange. Spread the word, I'm not beyond whoring myself out for the team. If that came out wrong, it was exactly my intention.

So my exam was today. The written part went... well, I'd say meh. I've been trying four times to pass it already, it's just that crazy. This time I might have done okay, if I haven't accidentally borked up something. Fingers crossed for the results on Wednesday, meanwhile I'll be studying for the oral part.

Meanwhile I wanted to pimp a couple of land comms that might be relevant to your interests~ [ profile] gleeverse (I'm in Team New Directions) and [ profile] inception_land (Team Badass Point Man ftw, and I'm instructed to say that the other teams are Architect, Extractor and Forger, though you can call them Team Badass too). Obv, refer me if you join so I get pointsss!
I know I keep complaining about being busy and then join new comms and all, but I need some distractions dammit. All my former high school classmates keep uploading photos to facebook that show they're doing nothing but going on holiday or getting drunk and I'm pissed off that I chose such a difficult degree and need fun stuff. So yeah. Join me.
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 [ 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

Despicable Me Live Watch Spam ♥

No, I really don't have anything else to say that isn't Ren-centric. :(
renrenren3: (Default)
The next couple of meme ficlets have been posted! This time I filled both Castle prompts. I loved the Beckett one, but the Castle one ended up being one of the longest. I don't even know why. Uh, whatever. I even managed to avoid spoilers, am I awesome or what?
Kate Beckett - All the Right Moves by OneRepublic for [ profile] gallifreycalls
Richard Castle - Hurricane Drunk by Florence and the Machine for [ profile] bizarre_esque
With this I'm halfway through, and it took me just a month! So maybe I'll be done in another month and then I can do this Christmas prompts thing... Except I don't do Christmas, so it'd be for New Year. Whatevs. I'm rambling now.

Watched Inception again, in English - finally managed to download a nice clean rip! Obviously I'm getting the DVD too, but I'm bad at waiting. Anyway, Inception. ♥
Yeah, most likely the next fills will be the two Inception ones.

Lastly, if you're a Merlin fan you reeeally should head over to [ profile] camelot_fics and vote so I can break the three-way tie that I have. It's really bothering me and I can't (for example) say that there is a tie for third place because my own fic is one of those tied. :/
So, either the tie get broken or the tie gets broken.


ETA: I finally made a custom icon for my layout so I wouldn't have to suffer LJ's ugly default one that always stretched the text. I totally still have pixel skillz.

Also I'm sad because I wrote this awesome fic for [ profile] thegameison_sh's challenge but it might not fit the monthly theme.

And I don't know if I'm signing up for next round because I like Sherlock but I'd like to write other stuff too but it's short and usually the themes inspire me but I want more time for Glee but IDK.

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.

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?

Fucking Real Life

Okay, I'm stressed over this fucking exam. So. Fucking. Much.
There just isn't enough time. And I've tried but I can't concentrate, and I know why. I'm just sick and tired of studying and I don't care about physics and I just want out. London needs to happen. Or something. I need to go somewhere, have a change of pace some time soon, or I'll lose my mind.


The fucking huge fandom

The only thing keeping me sane lately has been tea and Glee. Seriously. (It kind of rhymes but that wasn't the point.) There are no words to describe just how much I love that show and its cliché-riddled cast. I can just turn off my brain and hum along when I know the songs. And I kind of watched 5 episodes today with my sister because I knew stuff would happen on 1x12, and then 1x13 was Sectionals and we just needed to finish, and we were supposed to watch two episodes on Merlin tonight but after the failboat that was 3x09 (though I liked the punch-to-the-arm scene) I didn't really want to watch 3x10 so switching back to Glee seemed like a good alternative and then 1x15 was the Madonna episode... So yeah.

We're officially marathoning it. Late to the party and everything, but I don't really care. I just think I'll stay clear of the fandom because I don't really care for unnecessary drama and I miiight just have some unpopular opinions about characters/ships. (I also want to adopt Brittany, but that's beside the point.)
And I have a new favourite song. Lately I change favourite songs a bit too often. I have the attention span of a deranged rabbit. Unless it's time to watch another episode of Glee. Honestly I think this show might just have brainwashed me into some kind of mindless minion but I don't really care.


The small fandom that makes me happy

I've signed up for [ profile] yuletide and I've got a feeling nobody else is offering or requesting Locke Lamora. Which makes me sad, because, seriously. The author is cool too, personal problems aside, he's got a livejournal and pulled his main character's name from a Final Fantasy game and said he was okay with fanfiction as long as he didn't have to read any of it. And he's got the full prologue from his first book online here, I don't remember if it's the part about little Locke or the start of their highly entertaining con, but either way it's a good read.

There are conmen and witty remarks and badassness and female pirate captains. There's also much use of the word "fuck" and similar, but if you read my entries I suppose it doesn't bother you too much. Oh, and he tends to create characters and make you love them and then kill them off brutally. But apart from this, the books are cool. So, uhm. Read them? Please?

renrenren3: (Text * Call Batman)
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)

Merlin Prompt Fest @ [ profile] merlin_muses

Posting has started!

In case you haven't tired of it yet... here's the link once more! The first story has just gone up, with more coming soon. Including mine. I'm scared to read it again in case I find some remaining typos.
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.
