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.
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (YJ: Kaldur: bring it on)
First up! There were some beautiful things written for me recently.

written for me + two vid recs + comic rec )

stuff I've written recently )

And while I don't feel like tracking down all the stuff I wrote this year, I figure I might as well answer the end-of-year writing questions meme because why not?

talking about fic )

Um, I'm also going to declare this free-for-all on asking me anything about anything I've written. I kind of doubt there are questions, but if there are feel free to ask, or tell me that I got something wrong, or other stuff.

Happy New Year, everyone!

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Nikita: do not remember me as a bridge)
 Back from camp, done with the last day of work, HOLIDAYS.

oh yeah also Mary broke her collarbone. so. um. that happened.

Also Crossover Exchange!

Nevcolleil wrote me a lovely Criminal Minds/Inception crossover, Life Ain't A Dream, about Spencer and Arthur and their tangled life together. You guys should go check it out, it's really nice and I love the idea of Spencer and Arthur being childhood friends who wreaked havoc together before turning into something more.

I wrote The Curious Case of the Time Agent and His Sister for turkeyish, a Torchwood/Narnia fic which is actually set roughly in the same universe as that other Torchwood/Narnia fic I did ages ago, To Go Nowhere With You. (I strongly suspect there will be an Edmund/Ianto coda to this fic prettyyy soon. Also there is the fic that is specifically a sequel to TGNWY.) I am also writing a pinch hit which will show up sometime soon. Also I want to thank flyakate again for being an invaluable and wonderful beta. That fic was in a horrific state when she got it, and she did a quick turnaround and a very good beta on it at the same time. <3333

ALSO erasureathon has started and the person erasing for me is amazing and has already done one. xenoamorist erased Far From His Home and turned it into as small as a world and as large as alone, which is an amazing, beautiful piece of poetry about Castiel and Dean being in love and the awkwardness of bodies and it is really, stupendously well done. YOU SHOULD GO READ IT.

ps I am sort of watching TV but mostly just sitting around joining Aidan and Mary in their epic Battlestar Galactica watch. It mostly goes like this. "Betsy is it going to get better? At all?" "... Well, no, not really." "ARGH." *puts on another episode* 

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (SPN: Jo: a great big world)
FLIST. TWO THINGS.

one: spoilers for SPN 6x17 )

omg Justice League: Generation Lost is almost done! I am so excited for the last issue, I cannot even.

ALSO: I feel like Cass and Wendy and Stephanie and Damian should make their own little club. Probably called something like "Hero Kids With Supervillain Parents". They could eat cookies and refuse to talk about their feelings and then kick some ass, with Wendy making snarky comments in their ears, the rush of the wind in their face as they swing across the streets of Gotham. Unstoppable. They are more than the sum of their parts. They are better than their parents ever were. They stared death in the face and they walked away from it, stronger for it. This is the heart of them - the hope for a better tomorrow. A place where nobody has to be them.

oh hai Remix. hm.

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.

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: Castiel: this is all that remains)
 BEFORE I GO TO BED (as it is 11:30 and I am going ROCK CLIMBING in the morning, wooo!):

spoileeeeers. (oh hey can I have River Song back now pleaaaaase?) )

YAY SHOW.

things I did tonight while avoiding an essay.

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (CM: Prentiss: what is this fuckery?)
 1. L&O:UK last week was excellently done, SO GOOD in an artistic sense and Bamber gave a fantastic performance, and also it took a jackhammer to my triggers. but it was also sort of cathartic? I don't know if I can explain it.

2. awwwwww to SPN 6x02. I think I may be in the minority of my flist in that I am really enjoying S6 so far. it is sort of nuts, but I expect no less of my SPN! and we get Cas back next week, which is cool. :D

3. Z AND WYRM, IN EIGHT DAYS. <333 part of me cannot believe this is actually going to happen. :D

4. a friend of mine was pretty seriously ill these past few days - he hadn't been feeling good for a while, and then he went into the hospital and then it wasn't salmonella or e. coli like they thought and they were like TESTS and it was kind of crazy to get the news thirdhand, especially since someone was like "they are testing for cancer!". They finally found what it was, and it should be relatively easy to cure, so thank goodness for that. but yeah, that was not cool. 

5. COLLEGES.

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (SPN: Jo: a great big world)
 have been seeing several negative SPN reactions?

I guess that makes sense - it has a really different feel than it used to. But I really enjoyed it. It wasn't an "OMG FANTASTIC" episode, but I felt like it was put together pretty well, made sense, and was true to their characters. Spoilers! )

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. (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. (CM: Prentiss: what is this fuckery?)
Signal Boost: why Haiti after the earthquake is totally the appropriate place to set your J2 romance! /sarcasm

People are doing the explaining pretty well why exactly this is offensive, so I don't really have much to say beyond: oh, Author, that was not appropriate. I really don't know how you thought it was. And at this point, I really have to agree with the people who say that the intentions that went into writing this fic don't. mattter. They don't make it less offensive. 

+

OH FOR FUCK'S SAKE, WORLD. give me a break here! Must you give me race-fail AND gender-fail on the same day?

I cannot even begin to describe how really, really unhappy I'll be if they do let AJ and Paget go. Seriously. Oh Criminal Minds! I trusted you! Don't fail me now. D: See icon for further opinions.

+

Laptop out to the shop for back-up disc-making and defragmentation, I think my mom said? But it'll be back tonight, yay! While waiting for it to return so I can write Stonehenge Apocalypse/Supernatural crossovers in peace. In the meantime, I got distracted from my mission to watch Happytown by the glory that is Methos. Snarky English-accented cynical kind of amoral dorky 5000-year-old guy who claims he sticks his head out for no one and then REPEATEDLY attempts to fight the hero's battles for him? Because he's a loyal devoted LYING LIAR WHO LIES? You know I'm on it.



DON'T WORRY, LASS. I shall return to Happytown once I have finished with Methos. The first watch-through, that is. (GUYS IT'S LIKE DEAN/CASTIEL THE REMAKE (or the original?). They have a dramatic break-up, completely with throwing each other around on cars and sobbing! Only not always as serious, and Methos has a sense of humor.) I'm finding myself quite liking Duncan too - he's so honorable! An honorable guy can sometimes be boring but you can ALWAYS count on him.)

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Narnia: group: now a big hug!)
This is a particularly special piece of fail. You know, I'm fully aware of how very, very lucky I am that I don't require medication (though I'd probably be better off with it). Not everyone has that privilege. I guess what I'm saying is SHUT UP, ROBIN HOBB.

MEME TIME. 

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons. [it may not be instant but I'll do it!]

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (SPN: Castiel: this altogether thunder)
so I was just thinking about things like Casfest and how I am totally nervous about whether I can actually write Castiel well enough and then I realized that OMG IT IS [personal profile] whynot 's BIRTHDAY YAY!

+ 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)
I'm going to go with it was good, though it is hard to tell through my haze of "WTF OMG WTF".

the icon meme is going around again! I got it from [personal profile] sophinisba this time. :D

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

Pretty, pretty icons! )

And last night's Criminal Minds! OH TEAM. <333333333333333xinfinity

ACK SPN FINALE TONIGHT what am I going to dooooo. Cas must not die!
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.
