be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (DW: Amy: we are not birds)
 In the interest of staving off imminent self-loathing, can I ask you guys to participate in a sort-of-meme for me briefly?

Namely, drop me some sort of writing prompt! A quote, a color, song lyrics, whatever. 

It's going to be original stuff - if you want to see it just note in your comment and I'll reply with whatever I come up with. If you don't want to be bothered with whatever I churn out just drop the prompt and keep on your merry way!

If you have any preferences among my original projects you can mention that and I might go for that instead of the characters from the list. I could possibly also be interested in writing for Hardy Boys or SPN:TNG too, but I'm not really sure. Maybe, who knows. 

Basically the only important part of this whole post is the bolded bit, the rest is just me rambling. I think I might go get some sleep, and then write lots in the morning, and I will feel awesome. THIS IS HOW LIFE WILL GO AND YOU CAN'T TELL ME DIFFERENT.

I'm really sad about school being over. Much as I'm eager and thrilled to be leaving home and going to New Zealand, this semester was really great for me, both learning-wise and personally. I feel like I've become a lot more comfortable with myself and being myself around other people. Saying what I actually think rather than bending to what people around me think about me / about the subject. And some of that has definitely been my teachers and fellow students this semester. (One of whom I have a massive crush on, ugh.)

clearly, then it's fandom meme time, for cheering up purposes! Stolen from redsilverchains. :D

Name a fandom, and I will tell you a) my three favorite romantic relationships, b) my three favorite non-romantic relationships, and c) one character combination (either shippy or non-shippy) I wish got more attention in canon.

Also I might write you something.
 

I'm also currently working on what was supposed to be a quick Blake backstory piece and has been turning into a monster.

It's time for [community profile] isurrendered  shenanigans, guys! WHEE.

1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea. (post-apocalyptic scifi-fi drama, fantasy, noir gumshoe pulp, criminal procedure...IN SPACE, historical drama WITH WEREWOLVES, etc.).
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them.
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios, and show synopsis that you want.
4. Post to your own journal and/or the isurrendered community on DW or LJ.

PROMPT: from [personal profile] whynot : Superheroing ain't what it used to be. Superheroes are getting disillusioned, giving into the glitz of the paparazzi and reality TV, but there is one hero who still believes in doing good. 
TITLE: Unmasked
TYPE: Drama/sci-fi, in 13-episode seasons.
SETTING: 2040, Earth.
OPENING CREDITS SONG: Crash Years - The New Pornographers
CLOSING CREDITS SONG: Help I'm Alive - Metric
SYNOPSIS: Nicole Clary has spent her entire life waiting for this - graduation day and her induction into the ranks of superheroes. She knows the rules inside out - no masks, no secret identities, follow orders. What she doesn't expect is to find that the superheroes the world so looks up to seem more like supervillains up close. At first she just thinks they're too caught up with fame and wealth and power, but it doesn't take long for her to begin to realize that the League has committed horrible crimes in the name of justice and peace. Horrified, she looks for help in an unlikely place - a paralyzed first-generation superhero and her gang of teen masked, unregistered vigilantes.

 TWO THINGS

one: that one massive project of mine, a mix and exposition for an original project so I can get it out of the way and shoved into a To Write Much Later folder. the only constant (being change), a monster squad mix.

two: we should talk about The Eagle, I feel. and write awesome fic for it! you guys, there is a kink meme! it is tiny, and you all know my hang-ups with porn (I project my privacy issues EVERYWHERE), but I am hopeful that there will also be awesome fic that is not in fact all about the sex! I want more book verse Esca/Marcus/Cottia fic! I want more movie verse Esca/Marcus fic, and how eventually they meet up with Cottia and maybe they all head into the far wilderness somewhere else and are awesome forever? I DUNNO. I JUST WANT FIC. CAN THERE BE FIC. Can we talk about how much fun this movie is and how utterly gay it was and how I am already vidding it? (It is totally just a draft until I get actually decent source. Yes.) and how apparently there needs to be road warriors post-apocalyptic AU fic?

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. )

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. (GK: Walt: no idea what we're doing)
 *facepalm* Am fairly certain my body doesn't even know the definition of good timing. But I am feeling pretty much all better today, which is good! Just the remnants of a sore throat. :D thanks for the good wishes, guys. 

okay! one not-fun-at-all thing (and possibly even triggering for sexual violence victims, due to his phrasing) - TWoP's Jacob says some really nasty things about Amy Pond (and looking at his recent recaplet of Vincent and the Doctor, he also uses the phrase "bipolar bullshit", which. Okay, I don't have the time tonight to discuss this, because I will melt down.)

In happier things!

Harborverse - I haven't talked about it in a while, but I've been poking at Part 2 for a bit, working out plot, and yesterday/today I figured out that I've been focused on the wrong area - Cedric isn't the focus of the story. It's really all about Holland, and I'm so pleased about that. I couldn't make her central before because I couldn't figure out what she was doing, but now she has a plot arc and a character arc, with joining the Provosts and various other Things, and I'm really excited to write her, and her with Cedric, and her with Awesome People of the Provost and Awesome Mafia Leaders and her with Magic Beings. And basically just excited to be writing original regularly again, omg. Donaghues, I have miiiiissed you. (Things I need to do - rewrite Part 1. Perhaps I will get the newest rough draft done for NaNo this year? I want to set a higher goal for myself, and it's really a completely different story than the original Part 1. Also rough drafted, which is crazy for me.) Yay writing! *flails hands* SO HAPPY.

So I watched an episode and a half of House with my dad tonight (yeah, I know, he watches House - it always surprises me, but I'm pretty sure it's more about the health things than anything). It was pretty fun! I don't think I'd watch it on a regular basis, but it was really nice to have something to do with my dad that we were both interested and active in - I think he liked that he got to explain most of the relationships and characters, as I only know the basics and character names, and that I was watching something with him. So yay!

I've friended several new people recently - for those of you who are relatively new, I'm Betsy (or Beth, or Elisabeth, or Be), I love writing and fandom and music, and in RL I exhibit many of the symptoms of bipolar disorder, which causes me problems. I dunno! It's pretty easy to figure me out, really. I love to talk to people, and chatter about fannish things. 

I HAVE SUCH AN AWESOME FLIST. <333333 You guys are just SO FUN and intelligent and smart and talented - it's really incredible. I love you guys so much, I really do. I've had some rough times lately, as you know, and your warmth and kindness have been indescribably helpful, as have you simply being your wonderful selves on my flist. 

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Misc: Pic: no good reason to act her age)
FIRST and most importantly as well! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, [livejournal.com profile] zempasuchil . I hope it is a fabulous one. :D I would write you things, but I am afraid that I am too busy. <33333 I shall make do with good wishes and cheer! LOVE YOU LOTS AND LOTS.

Speaking of busy: this Saturday my mom leaves for New Zealand. She'll be gone for a week attending my sister's wedding. My older sister is out West skiing with her boyfriend and his family. Essentially, this means that I'm in charge of meals, cleaning, school, and getting everyone (including me) to school/baseball/other places on time for a week. This will Not Be Fun, especially because both of my younger siblings are kind of jerks when it comes to cleaning. I do almost all of the cleaning in the house - they do some yard work on Saturdays and make lots of messes. (Yesterday night I found molded over steak in the back of the stove, which I had had no occasion to use or clean since last Friday. I had mistakenly assumed that others weren't just dumping dirty frying pans and plates in there.) When I ask them to clean, they don't. When I get angry at them because of that, they yell and say that I never do anything. At which point I go really quiet and kind of scary. It is not fun.

Also: ScriptFrenzy and Remix, same time. I can... totally do this? Uh. TOTALLY. well, I can, but it'll be tough. but I am SO PLEASED to be writing Cabin Fever, SO PLEASED you have no idea. I have been needing a new original fic project to distract me from wanting to turn to go nowhere with you into a whole 'verse.

Three tests recently - one today, one last Tuesday, one take-home due next Tuesday. Got a 61% on the Biology test, which is killing me inside. I just. GAH. It's definitely my fault, there. *facepalm*

Okay time for happy things. happy things like writing memes! TWO OF THEM. an old favorite and one picked up from fahye.

Ask me a question about one of my fics -- characters, plot, what happened before or after, what the writing process was like, what scenes I cut or changed, other ways the fic could have gone, relevant bits of backstory/headcanon/worldbuilding, what a certain line or scene meant or was in reference to, what various characters were doing offscreen, or anything else you can think of. Questions can be as silly/serious/sexy as you like.

+

Give me the title of a story I've never written, and feedback telling me what you liked best about it, and I will tell you any of: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made me want to write it, the biggest problem I had while writing it, why it almost never got posted, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that I wish I'd been able to salvage, or something else that I want readers to know.

ETA: THAT'S IT I'M GOING HOME AND MAKING SOMETHING WITH SUGAR OR AT LEAST VAGUELY SWEET AND NOTHING CAN STOP ME I SWEAR TO GOD. *glitter rage meltdown* Shit, I knew I was heading towards this. It's what I was trying to avoid with cathartic sad TV, which worked but not as long as I'd hoped. Now I'm tired and crying in the school library for NO REASON whatsoever. goddamnit. I have a driving test tomorrow and I cannot fail it and. I just.

going home. making sugar. doing writing memes and fixing Pevensies/Winchester of Doom and I am going to HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND.

Things Betsy finds fun: making up pantheons. Mostly because it involves researching pantheons, which I find so freaking fascinating. It's amazing! It is like candy to my brain, or something. It's awesome!

Fun facts of today's research:

Alala, female personification of the Greek war cry! Ironically enough, her name means "dumb, mute, speechless." I find this amusing.

Ares was the personification of more of less impulsive violence and slaughter, Athena the goddess of strategic fighting (also wisdom, probably the reason for the strategic fighting). Mars, the Roman (ETA: things Betsy should never do in a hurry - write about gods.) god of war, on the other hand, was the god of manly valor more. Minerva, the Roman equivalent of Athena, tended towards the crafts side of things much more than the war side.

Want to guess how this train of research got started?

Researching the Hippocratic Oath, so I could rewrite it more or less appropriately for Cedric, because he is a doctor. Then I delved into who he would swear by, got out my old research for the gods of a different world (hastily built during Nano for about twelve days and then set aside, because I needed something fun to write that year and that world was much too realistic). Currently he's swearing by the Gods Without Names (alternatively, the Gods Without Faces, which is technically inaccurate), and the small gods, which is the general name for all the lesser gods of all the religions, who have kind of gotten jumbled together at this point. The Gods Without Names were always my favorites - they were going to be the Winter gods, for a region of people who had invaded and conquered around two hundred years before. There's five of them, and each one has multiple titles (and these are just the most-used ones). Each one is very much up to personal interpretation.

The Goddess of Yesterday (the Grey Lady, the Dreamweaver, the Dawndreamer)
The God of Tomorrow (the Grey Lord, the Morrowweaver)
The God of War (the Red God, the Nightbringer, the Blood God)
The Mother (the White Lady, the Sun Goddess)
The Maiden (the Receiver, the Faceless)

Uh. Going to finish rewriting the Hippocratic Oath and going to bed now. *facepalm*

oh, cedric

Okay, I'm pretty sure this is going to be a post on the scale of epic.

thanks and cracked teeth )
I've caught up with my f-list! I went back to around Thursday and hopefully caught everyone from then on. Sorry if I missed anyone!

Things I want to recommend to people.

A) [livejournal.com profile] zempasuchil drew Mary Blake/Renesmee. It is adorable.
B) Anything on [livejournal.com profile] houseofpevensie . I'm a bit erratic on commenting on them, but the writing is superb and I adore the characters.
C) [personal profile] animus_wyrmis posted her lovely Leah/Angela fic with no name. So pretty!

TV shows I watched while I was in a horrible mood - Chuck (about six episodes of the first season), Pushing Daisies (part of the first episode before I got kicked off the computer), Supernatural (a few of my favorite episodes), Project Runway (I have to admit, I generally skip to the reunion episode after my favorites get kicked off).

As proof that I really need to slow down on the fic writing and just concentrate on a few, I'm going to go ahead and do the 'give a line from each of your WIP's' meme. Um. For some of them it's more like post a paragraph.

harborverse, nostalgia!origfic, what images return (next renesmee), untitled susan!fic, untitlted narniaexchange, untitled erasureathon )

I must turn in one Latin assignment and two Government assignments, and then I shall return to play with fic! Renesmee metafic is being difficult. a) I completely forgot Seth b) I introduced the Cullens. I'm thinking that needs to be a later story, that this one should be only about Mary and Leah. I dunno.

Stuff I did yesterday
-went 'back-to-school' shopping, or our equivalent of it. my mom hates shopping generally, so we only go on big shopping trips two or three times a year. I got cute shorts and a t-shirt that has peace's definition on it and a skirt that is legitimately adorable with really big pockets (do you know how long I have wanted a skirt that has pockets and is still cute?) and two white church shirts and new white good shoes (they are so cute!) and also slips and a tank top etc. SO YAY!
-went through my two drawers and rearranged everything
-brought in two loads of laundry
-got half an assignment for government done
-posted part 2 of the Mary 'verse, which needs a 'verse name

Things I have done today
-wrote parts of Cedric and Holland in New Orleans with the mafia (oh god help *whimpers*)
-responded to comments on LJ
-determined that 'Don't Stop Believin'' is Renesmee/Mary's theme song, most definitely
-wrote bits of part 3 of the Mary 'verse (some in comments, mostly in my head - it's set in Harvard) and extraneous bits

Things I still need to do today
-make brownies for when Papa and Sam get back from baseball
-do the dishes
-get at least one assignment, preferably two, turned in for government
-work on Latin
-finish eating dinner
-get some typing up done, of any of the stuff I've got floating in my head/on paper (this includes Mary 'verse, Happenstance Harbor 'verse, my random nostalgia writing
added
-make graphic for and pimp [livejournal.com profile] erasureathon 

So much! I'm going to turn the music up loud and dance while I do the dishes.

(other stuff in my head - it's weird, but generally the only time I actually talk about my depression is in when I'm in one of my down moods, and once I'm feeling better it's instinct to just white wash it and say everything's fine and smile a lot. I'm not exactly sure what this says about me. I do know that I'm kind of tired of feeling ashamed of something I'm doing my damn best to control, especially since it's not anyone else making me feel ashamed of it now that I don't talk about it to my sister, just me. it's stupid and frustrating and I keep doing it anyways.)

*turns on the music*

ETA: You know what? It has been one of those days (weeks, really) again. I'm getting tired of them.

Found more poetry!

Also, most important thing to remember while writing 'At the First Glimpse of Thunder' or whatever part of it I end up writing next -

This is an AU of Earth. It is not Earth.

This means that America doesn't have to win the Revolution.

Huh.

*considers possibilities*

First there are facts. “The King died.” Then are plots. “The King died and the Queen died.” Then there are motives. “The King died and the Queen died of grief.” And then there is story. "The King died. The Queen lived."

Yes, I'm well aware that that is not how the original quote went, but that's how mine goes. Writing is a story of life, and the best ones are a celebration of life.

 
Anna's curled up against Katie in the back seat, iPod in her ears, when the car stops moving. She wakes up slowly, still yawning as she glances out the window.

"Jared." There is no response from the first seat but the slam of car doors, and she sits up straighter, grabbing a few of the nastier items littering the front seat with one hand as she cranks down her window with the other. "Jared, this isn't a hotel!" she calls out the window, dumping the trash into a plastic bag. Beside her Katie stirs and Anna sighs and opens the door, crossing barefoot to where Jared and Owen are standing in the sand on the edge of the road. "Jared," she begins again, but he grabs her wrist and pulls her forward.

"Oh, Anna, shut up and look," he says.

"It's the desert," she says, and he circles her with his arms and rests his chin on her hair.

"I know. Look," he says softly, and she obliges him. Beside her Owen is silent, and the only sound is the car door closing as Katie comes out to join them, eyes rimmed in mascara that's rubbed darker than she intended and hair tangled. Anna relaxes and leans back into Jared's arms. The night air is cold here, and he is warm and comforting. The desert is bigger than she had ever thought, and it is unsettling to look at. But she's unwilling to break the hush that's fallen over them, and there's an almost full moon (waning, she thinks, analytical as always) coloring the desert silver. Everything is completely silent for several minutes. She digs her toes into the sand and wishes she could take out a cigarette without disturbing Jared's arms.

"It looks like it goes on forever," Katie says finally, wide-eyed, and Anna smiles at her.

"Who knows? Maybe it does," she says, and Owen grins at her. She can feel Jared smile against her hair, and she turns around.
 "That doesn't mean I'm not exhausted," she says more practically, and Owen gives a sigh of exasperation.

"Sometimes I think you don't have a romantic bone in your body," he says.

"Ask Jared," Anna says with a wicked smile and heads back to the car, taking out a cigarette and lighting it as she opens the door and slides in, avoiding the view out her window.

Places my four road trippers are visiting.

Lincoln Park Zoo, in Chicago. There is a sign somewhere with the quote "Never doubt that a small, group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has," by Margaret Mead. When my family visited it while my sister was in college at Wheaton, we all sat under the sign and looked very very serious.

The desert. Just the desert. Any part of it really. They may even try camping on it!

Las Vegas.

That statue they're building of Crazy Horse. They buy postcards and donate to the fund, even though Anna says that it's just another statue and in a couple hundred years people will be excavating it. That's what you get for having archaeologist parents, Jared proclaims, and drops in another five bucks. Anna scoffs and tilts her nose up in the air and insists it's just the truth.

Times Square.

The Golden Gate Bridge.

And many others. The thing I didn't realize when starting this fic was that it would involve research. ARGH. Oh well, I still want to write it. *hugs fic*
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Harry Potter: Slytherclaw: vile names)
church annoyances )

MORE IMPORTANTLY.

So. This started out as me just being nostalgic and then turned into me going 'what i don't even know what... what are you doing? no stop that COME BACK HERE ANNA!' as the characters just kind of ran off and became a little bit thinly-concealed college-baseball AU of Merlin/Narnia (the FMC is named Anna. >.< there is also a Katie and an Owain and a Lance (although to be perfectly fair he's based on one of the guy's on my brother's Harvard team, also named Lance and kind of sort of awesome). I am never escaping these people, am I?) and a little bit my family AU-ified and our adventures in Connecticut and Massachusetts and Florida with baseball and road trips (only, um, it decided not to do so much baseball except for when they drop by Lance so much as just ROAD TRIPPPPPP, but there will be baseball THEIR NEXT SUMMER, WOODEN BAT LEAGUE WHEEE). Look I just don't know, okay? (also, obviously last names are indeterminate and may be changed at a WHIM.)

Jared (5:12): lance we need you to come take photos before we go )

Have two DW Invite codes for anyone who wants them! I believe most of my f-list already has them if they want them, but if not... Unless there's some overwhelming response, which I seriously doubt, it'll be first-come first-served. <333

Urgh, comment notification is being wonky. It's alerting me, but it's waiting until hours after they've posted a comment, and totally out of order. Huh.

Also - Happenstance Harbor. Basically, me going COME ON BOSTON HARBOR HAVE SOME FORM OF RECORDS. COME ON. I'M NOT ASKING THAT MUCH.

Boston Harbor haaaates me. And yet I do need to know at least the basics of what type of ships came in and out, how many, what time they were likely to come in more often, what times of the year no one ever sailed (though that I can find out through other avenues HAHA) and also basic wharf arrangement because Happenstance Harbor is the Boston Harbor of my alternate universe America. Except a bit bigger, because of rock problems on most of the Northern coast. There's only three harbors up there, but they're all big. And then you've got down South, which every Northerner knows is just sand. "Yeah, they claim their harbors are bigger, but everyone knows they're just pulling cod out of rocks."

... oh ... I'm coming up with SLANG.

This story is never going to leave me alone, is it?
