be_themoon: (perhaps i can tell you how i feel)
 man defaulting from a fanfiction challenge for the first time ever feels really weird. so sorry, yuletide! but i am just not cut out for fanfiction this year, which i should have realized earlier. i may browse through and see if i can write some treats, but i really just do not seem to have fanfiction mojo. it's a weird feeling!

i am so bad at regularly updating, and at checking my flist. it's hard to remember to keep up multiple platforms of contact with friends! twitter, plurk, email, dreamwidth, livejournal, aim - all sorts of places with friends i want to talk to. and there are only so many hours in a day!

perhaps i should set up a "if i'm not around dreamwidth i am in these places!" post so that it is always to reach me one way or another.

in assorted things!

+ new TARDIS interior nooo I'm sure the new one will be beautiful (Gallifreyan!) but I have so much fondness for the old one and its steampunk self and that old typewriter and the glass column I will miss it a great deal. 

+ I have been watching through Life with a friend, and it is a beautiful beautiful show, oh wow. I am loving it so much. Only three episodes to go what will I do when it's over? Weep, probably.

+ I have been watching Elementary too, with said friend, and it is doing fantastic. You guys should all be watching it I think, I am pretty sure the majority of people I know would really enjoy it a lot! The relationships are complicated and done really well and the acting is beautiful and it's a very very human Holmes who's been through a lot. BASICALLY I REALLY LOVE IT AND IF YOU WANT ME TO WORD VOMIT ON YOU I WILL.

+ Sometimes I feel sad I broke up with Supernatural but then I don't. Except it's a longer more complicated emotional moment than that. Oh shows and feelings about them.

Today: assorted everythings. (Technically it is the morning of Day 5. It's still night time for you guys so there! :P Day 5 post will come later.)

MORE COMING TONIGHT. :D
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (DC: Batgirl: smile and dodge)
 First, some recs!

Vialethe wrote some gorgeous Last Battle AU Susan/Edmund travelling the world. 

Beccatoria did a lovely DCAU Wonder Woman vid, "I'm Holding Out For A Hero."

[personal profile] settiai did a fantastic Doctor Who Rory/Amy vid, "You Told The Drunks I Knew Karate". THEY HAVE PERFECT FACES.

Someone wrote me a lovely Ramandu's Island fic for the Narnia Fic Exchange, This is not an ending. I've been bad and neglectful and am only now commenting on it, but I really enjoyed it.

Stuff by me that I never mentioned here! My Remix fic.

Secret Virtues (the Blackmail and Bars Remix)
Highlander: The Series. Amanda, Methos. Pretty much gen. 1,003 words.

Amanda and Methos are definitely my favorite two characters from Highlander, and I love their interactions in canon, so this was quite fun to write. It's a little bit silly. :P

I'm currently speeding through reading the Alex Rider series. (The school library has all of them but the second.) You guys, the level of psychological damage this kid is carrying after just four books is INSANE. I shudder to think of how totally broken he's going to be after 8. 

Communication levels here where I work: MINIMAL. We had a meeting three weeks after I got here where we were finally given a list of specific instructions for our jobs. Yeah. Before that we'd just been doing whatever we'd been told to do and not really knowing what we were supposed to do. I know. There was something on the list of specific duties about "checking the dorms every 30 minutes". I asked about it because I'd never been told to do that or seen anyone do that (including the two people telling me to do it), and they both looked at me and were like "Oh, nobody's told you that?" ... NO, okay, no, because nobody tells anybody anything in this hostel! 

But mostly work is going okay. I may be coming down with chicken pox? Aidan had shingles and I've been feeling kind of bad the past few days. Tomorrow I have all day off so I'm going to sleep a lot and drink a lot of water and hopefully feel better. (It probably hasn't helped that my stomach has once again hit the "oh dear god this food is awful" spot and can't take most of it. I'll have to go to the grocery store today after lunch and see if I can find something decent to eat.) 

Downloading takes so long on this connection.

I sort of love being pretty independent. :D And having money regularly. (Though I am trying to avoid spending most of it. My pay goes straight through to my card, and I try to only use the cash I get from vacuuming a lady's house on Friday's. :D)

I'm writing! I feel really happy about that. I think I'm going to do a "works in progress" meme sometime soon, because I keep fluttering between them and I could use the incentive to finish them. (It's kind of a bizarre list.)

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (DC: Batgirl: smile and dodge)
 I don't really have collected thoughts on it. not that the lack of capslock means that I didn't like it! I did. I really liked it.

Just a little busy being super baffled.

Things of note:spoilers )

 ANYWAYS. I really liked that episode, it was at once satisfying and raised a ridiculous amount of questions. Oh Moff Who and Team Eleven, I am so pleased you are back. 

kinda spoilery too )

OH YEAH also I accepted at Kalamazoo and have my deposit in and will be going there in Fall of 2012. and now for New Zealand preparations! I will probably get to see them filming the Hobbit! if I'm lucky and have funds, I might be able to fly over to the Philippines for a bit during the N.Z. summer holiday! THIS IS ALL TERRIBLY EXCITING.

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (DW: Amy: we are not birds)
First genderswap meme response up here: Golden Age Pevensies & Queen Cassia, picspam & accompanying fic. Yes, that is a new community. I wanted someplace to dump things that wasn't my personal journal. More genderswap replies coming later for: Supernatural, Merlin, Downton Abbey & White Collar.

and now for the Awesome Ladies meme!

the list:

1. Susan Pevensie (Narnia)
2. Keladry of Mindelan (Protector of the Small)
3. Jesse Flores (T:SCC)
4. Amy Pond (Doctor Who)
5. Nikita (Nikita)
6. Lady Mary Crawley (Downton Abbey)
7. Anastasia "Dee" Dualla (Battlestar Galactica)
8. Emily Prentiss (Criminal Minds)
9. Anna Milton (Supernatural)
10. Diana Barrigan (White Collar)
11. Kono Kalakaua (Hawaii Five-0)
12. Holland Donaghue (OC)
13. River Song (Doctor Who)
14. Jenny Lewis (Primeval)
15. Eowyn (Lord of the Rings)

(do you know how hard this was to narrow down? I wanted to put EVERYONE on there. I switched names in and out for probably half an hour before settling on this. SO MANY LADIES.)

and responses!

11 responses. ) 

and that one meme with your WIP titles. I don't really have a WIP folder, just a writing one, but let's see what I've got in there. 

I have got to finish some of this stuff. )

Shoooooow

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Nikita: Michael/Nikita: long distance)
First, the internet at my house has been being awful recently, so I may be pretty absent in the next several days. UGH UGH UGH so annoyiiiiing. 

So, TV stuff! 

The Event pilot. 
3/5? maybe a 4/5? )
Supernatural S6 premiere tonight! I look forward to watching it tomorrow. :D

What else? L&O has been back, though I have to wait another week for the episode all about Matt. (MATT <3333). I am hopeful that we will get a lot more this season about his fantastic boss Harriet, because I adore everything I've gotten about her so far. 

MORE IMPORTANTLY. Nikita! 

I think I have a new Show. )

Now VID RECS.

Well, just 3. Cold War by emthiessen on LJ, a video around the Doctor Who S5 finale. GORGEOUS. "This is a cold war, do you know what you're fighting for?" You guys know how the finale gets me - this vid is all about WHY, I guess. 

I have not, in fact, abandoned SPN, despite my love for Nikita. Man With A Thousand Faces, a Gabriel vid. OH GABRIEL. Sometimes I just adore you. :(

When You Were Young, another Doctor Who S5 vid, because apparently when you put Doctor Who to The Killers I will fall over myself to watch it. Oh Amy&11! "We're burning down the highway skyline on the back of a hurricane that started turning when you were young." I LOVE THEM SOOOO.


be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Leverage: Parker&Hardison: thieves)
 Today is Mary's second-to-last day at home, and her last full day. I have been absurdly busy, but in the short moments I've been online, I have been SO pleased about all the vids being posted. (VidCon! though not all of them, I think.)

So a drive-by rec: Run With Me by [livejournal.com profile] chaila43 , which is essentially a vid about how River Song could probably take on the entire universe and WIN because she is just that awesome, and it is a vid to Speeding Cars by Imogen Heap, and it is just AWESOME, omg. Parallels! Wonderful cutting! The story of River and the Doctor done so well and so beautifully! It makes me giddy with joooy.

okay, off to play Alibi with family. considering that I have managed approximately four days to myself in the past four-five weeks, I'm pretty sure I'll spend most of tomorrow past noon hiding in my room having a nervous breakdown, finishing rewatching T:SCC or watching other stuff, and hanging out on Skype hoping to talk to people. See you!
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (A:TLA: Katara: can't knock me down)
 GUYS. GUYS.

A STEAMPUNK-ISH A:TLA SEQUEL WITH A WATERBENDER LADY AVATAR. plus a bonus interview in which the creators are like "... why not?" when asked why they decided to have a female avatar. and scoff at the notion that a male has to be the hero of an action show! and acknowledge their female fanbase OMG. (and there is already a friending meme! also shipping wank. OH FANDOM. how can you be made of such fail and such awesome all at once? *sigh*)

Guys, the television gods love me. As I said elsewhere, first I got Season 5 of DW, then I get this? IT IS LIKE A HUNDRED CHRISTMASES ALL AT ONCE. MAYBE MORE. 

2011 is going to be SUCH A GOOD TV YEAR. New season of Doctor Who! New season of Primeval! Avatar: The Legend of Korra! 

Watching White Collar 2x02. Instareaction!

Spoilers, naturally. )

(2011 TV IS GOING TO BE SO EPIIIIIC.)
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (HL: Methos: not afraid to run away)
So Aidan's gone as of Friday afternoon (Mary's staying for three weeks, yay!). We went to the beach, to the springs, played Ultimate Frisbee, had a party, and played possibly illegal amounts of board and card games. I socialized for what ended up being almost five days. Still utterly exhausted and anti-social. I slept badly Friday night, woke up three times or so.

Yesterday night I didn't get enough sleep either, for other reasons. Mostly involving The Roach Saga. (I HATE roaches, guys. SO MUCH.) About five in the morning today a roach took it into it's head to be as obnoxious to Mary as possible, including running across her face. *shudder* Then it got onto my bed, and things spiraled out of control from there until Mary was sleeping on the couch in the living room and Katherine and I had the lights on and were watching Primeval (the last four episodes of Season 3) and White Collar's first episode on my bed, while encouraging our dog to kill any roaches she found in our room. So yeah. I got... six hours of sleep last night? I've been alternating between hyper and looking drugged all day. Anyway, that all led to the Great Roach Hunt, wherein Kat and Mary and I spent large portions of today clearing out my room. Really thoroughly.

Come on down to metatardis!
Where we are all definitely madmen in boxes.

It's going to be pretty fabulous, guys. There have already been some great meta-pieces, and I know there'll be more. You should drop by! 

Vid recs! I have four.

Your Ghost by [livejournal.com profile] charmax is a devastating and beautiful Winchester family epic. The lyrics are utterly perfect, the song is beautiful with the right melancholy to it, and the story told is wonderful. Three generations of Campbells/Winchesters, with all their utter tragedy!

Never Gonna Leave Me by [livejournal.com profile] lee_fragilidad is a Syfy Alice vid, Alice/Hatter, and it's just the right mix of upbeat running/fighting and wishful glances. The cutting is sharp and the whole thing is really well-constructed.

Bad Romance by [personal profile] such_heights may have me convinced that I need to finish watching S2 of Merlin. (I'm.. .not sure why I haven't, actually.) But I definitely have to watch the Morgause episodes, and this vid is why. Gwen/Morgana/Morgause love triangle! WANT.

Lullaby For A Stormy Night by [personal profile] such_heights is the tiny!Amy and Eleven vid we all knew we wanted. So adorable, omg. ♥

On TV-watching fronts! White Collar 2x01 was quite lovely. Neal and Peter were in fine bickering form, Mozzie played a great role. I only wish there had been more (MUCH MORE) of El and Diana, and that that one Scare hadn't happened at the end.spoilerrrrrs )

Primeval is pretty wonderful - I wish it was more racially diverse, but they are fairly decent on delivering Awesome Ladies Being Awesome and there is no shortage of handsome men and I am shallow. spoilers through 3x03 )

Femgenficathon it is! this needs to be DONE. I need to move on! wait what why am I writing Claudia Brown/Jenny Lewis fic all of a sudden. *eyes* but I wanted to write Rosalie fic? except... I guess that's not happening. 

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (SPN: Jo: a great big world)
 + I, uh, may or may not have revamped all my icons. Again. (Note: the one icon that has remained constant since more or less the beginning is Susan-being-kickass. The icon might change, but it's the one type of icon I think I've always had. SUSAN.)

+ it's not my fault! it's just, there was Jo, and I LOVE Jo, and plus it was a wanderlust icon! and things just kept spiraling completely out of control from there. (also WANDERLUST. I have it so badly.)

+ People have been wonderfully awesome today! flist, carry on being awesome! <333

+ One thing that was not particularly awesome - in the lesson at Sunday school today, the teacher spent a good five-ten minutes talking about how it's your fault (and only yours) if you're upset, or sad. Which - okay, I think I'm a mindset where I can actually talk intelligently about this for a moment. rambling for a moment. )

+ Huh! I still feel happy. This is good. 

+ You guys, the "gotcha" moment from the Doctor Who finale is now guaranteed to make me start crying. Actual tears! OH SEASON FIVE, how so AWESOME?

+ I have writing mojo back! Interestingly enough, not for fanfic at all (oops! uh. I will get those things I need to write done! I will! Just not today. Or this week.). In fact, it is all for original fic, Harborverse and then I've got some 2K of character outlining and scene bits for something to put in the WIP folder and come back to later. Or possibly I'll just write today, whatever I want to, because I have inspiration and I have been missing this so much, so MUCH. The joy of writing is a beautiful thing, and I really needed that yesterday, and I love the feeling and the joy of visualizing things and writing them down and I just love it so so much. <3333 I'm off to write now! 

ETA: I almost forgot! I wanted to link you to all to this fantastic anti-rape ad - apparently it is being run in Scotland? It is really well-done.

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Narnia: group: now a big hug!)
 things I want: lots more indulgent world-building fic about a world Doctor Who  )

you know, the more things I hear about SPN S6, the more I get excited for it! it's sounding kind of epic. 

poetry is EPIC, guys! especially when you're relating it to fandom, which means that [livejournal.com profile] gid_hanasheh and [livejournal.com profile] motherlessguns are awesome and that everyone should watch them.

man, SPN is addictive, isn't it? and it spreads like wildfire! let's see. I got Lass hooked, Lass got Z and Wyrm into it (and I think others I don't know), Larm and I got Meto and Irish and Kate into it, and now I'm sort of worried for ALL OF YOU GUYS' SANITY. SPN will steal it! and rip your heart out! oh wait, you know that now. 

I want to watch Happy Town, because it's crazy and fun, but at the same time - it creeped me out SO badly, and that was just the first episode. I think I have to be very careful about how I'm doing emotionally before I finish watching it. 

I did, however, watch the SyFy Alice, which has been on my list for a long time, and Alice/Hatter is adorable, y'all. Also everyone kicks ass! I always enjoy that.

I get to plan hopeful college-visiting! YAY.

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (DW: Eleven/Amy/Rory: team tardis)
 YES.

Just. YES.

Thank you, Stephen Moffat and Team TARDIS and EVERYONE involved in this season! ("Gotcha.")

I cried. I have my perfect season. I can't even comprehend the thought that next season could be better, because. This SEASON. this FINALE. 
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (GK: Walt: no idea what we're doing)
 I have been having A LIFE this week, guys! I went out like three or four times? I went to a movie! and the springs (twice)! and I actually Did Things with Real, Live People and I didn't even consider injuring anyone! not once! 

and now it is WHO TIME OMGGGGG.

JUST THREE MORE MINUTES. 

It's storming, but the lightning must hold off long enough for it to download! PLEASE.

(PS: No, seriously, did someone like TRAVEL FORWARDS IN TIME, find out my preferences in men, and then create Methos from them?)
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (GK: Walt: no idea what we're doing)
First off, I would like to take a moment to pimp the Narnia Fic Exchange. (OMG YAY.)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Go! Sign up! Enjoy! Sign-ups are open until June 19th. *claps hands excitedly* I am looking forward to this SO MUCH, you have no idea.

Doctor Who last Saturday! Guys, SO GOOD. 

Spoilers for Doctor Who 5x10,  )

Stuff from next week's blurb/preview. )

HEY DW FANDOM, while I'm on Doctor Who. Stop it with the slut-shaming and other absurdity! Feminism: you're getting it wrong. If you dislike Amy, try to dislike her in a rational manner. I know it can be done! I know people who are doing it in a rational manner! You can do it too. (Well, I'd prefer you just convert to thinking she is the awesomest, but I'll settle for disliking her for rational reasons that don't involve saying she dresses like a slut, which is especially insulting to me because - well, does that mean you think I'm a slut for having legs like hers and wanting to wear her clothes?) I encourage you to engage in reasonable discussions, thoughtfulness, and a deep deep look at internalized misogyny. Thanks!

no love until you stop the hypocrisy and vileness, 
Betsy.

Title: My Imperfect Offering
Vidder: [personal profile] be_themoon
Fandom: Doctor Who (New)
Music: "Aside" by The Weakerthans
Spoilers: Large spoilers through 5x09.
Summary: Rory!
Streaming/Download: Streaming at Vimeo and download at FileFront.
Notes: This isn't meant to be a great vid - I did it solely as therapy for yesterday's episode. I'm kind of like this :( right now, because I'd meant to do a Rory-only vid once the whole season was over and I had more material, and, well.

Sing my imperfect offering. )
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (DW: Amy/Rory: this is forever)
RL things. )

so, Doctor Who 5x09 Cold Blood reaction post.

akshdgd NOOOO. )

*deep breaths* I attempted to self-therapeutize myself through vidding. The result is a 1:22 Rory vid that did absolutely nothing to make me at peace with it. It'll probably be up soon - it's rough, but I didn't make it for perfection. I'm reserving my perfectionist tendences for the Susan Pevensie vid I have been patiently working on for days now. No, it's not done yet. Almost, but I've got to get one last bit adjusted.

I've been planning to do one drabble every day this summer - most of the time I'll probably do round-up posts once a week, but today I'm just going to put it in this post.

just a nurse
Doctor Who. Amy/Rory, 137 words.

For one, he's a nurse. )

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (DW: 11&Amy: gotcha)
GUYS GUYS GUYS kaydeefalls has posted a new Doctor Who fanvid and because she is ABSURDLY GOOD it is WONDERFUL. 

So What Do I Do With This, an Amy-centric fanvid set to "Stray Italian Greyhound" by Vienna Teng. The song choice and lyrics is spot-on, the vidding is beautifully done, it's just perfect, okay? (I am especially amused by the juxtaposition of the Doctor with the lyrics "so what do I do with this / this stray Italian greyhound" because it fits so well.) BUT: those of you on the American schedule, this vid does contain clips and very minor spoilers from 5x07 "Amy's Choice", so you might want to wait a week and watch it then. I don't thinkt it really spoils anything for the episode that can be understood without watching the episoe, but still, be careful.

I've been self-medicating with it and other fannish things all morning. Sam and Katherine were gone this morning when my mom woke up, but so were their bikes and they've headed out on walks without telling anyone, so she wasn't worried at first, just angry that they were still doing this after she'd told them to stop. It eventually turned out that they had gone to some neighbors who have animals and are apparently STILL THERE, without telling any of us, three and a half hours later. So I am pissed at them, and only now starting to un-panic.

Moffat! <3

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Bourne: Jason: it's all textbook stuff)
+ omg, Remix done and out to beta turned in! WOO.

+ TeeVee. Criminal Minds - lovely. SPN finale - good and also really mindscrewy. Doctor Who "Amy's Choice" - lovely.

+ Speaking of Doctor Who. This is some lovely meta on the differences in writing style between RTD and Moffat, and pretty much pinpoints why I love Moffat's style so much more. <333 Spoilers for Season 5 through 5x07. )

+ Did Pirates of Penzanze today, and it came off okay. I think I even did all right myself! So yay for that. :D
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (GK: Nate&Brad: it's hard to save the wor)
Now playing only on Dreamwidth: Sixteen Pounds, Titanium (my Generation Kill meta/picspam/pimping post).

oh, last night's Criminal Minds! a thing of BEAUTY. Pitch-perfect character interaction, focus on the victims and their agency, Reid and Prentiss and Morgan being adorable, Garcia being <3333333333333333, Rossi dry and snarky, Hotch and his non-reassurances, JJ and how she still worries when parenting and children are involved. Criminal Minds is always good, but when it's at it's best it's like no time went by at all while you were watching it, and last night it was at it's best. (Prentiss and Reid gambling for pretzels and cheetos! omg adorable.)

you guys tonight is the second-to-last episode of Supernatural Season 5. *panicky eyes* I don't know how they're fixing this. but at least there is a Season 6! and the producers have sworn that they're wrapping up this plotline the way they always meant to, so I don't have to worry about plot decay.

and Saturday a new Who! in VENICE, with Rory and vampires! it's going to be fabulous.

Unfortunately, I won't get to see Doctor Who until Sunday. Friday afternoon my sister and I are driving down to St. Petersburg to visit a really close friend in college. She got engaged recently and she's moving out West to be with her fiance and switching colleges, so this may be one of the last times we see her for a while. D: but we're going to be staying overnight and coming back only late on Saturday.

on a last note, [personal profile] newredshoes asked "What ridiculous AU do YOU want?" to her f-list, and I immediately went "OMG GK BASEBALL AU" (of course! if only my dad realized what an influence baseball has been on my life, despite only playing one season of softball). I want it, guys. where is the baseball AU? must I write it myself? I do not have time! (Fact: if it's a team show, I want a baseball AU. I just want it much more desperately than normal for GK.)

maybe I just desperately want all kinds of crossovers and AU's? that's probably part of it.
