It's a low-key, relaxed, everyone play in everyone else's sandbox ficathon. There's big fandoms prompted and tiny ones and crossovers that make you go "... they are ALL INSANE, aren't they?"

and it is all just the best thing. Spread the news! The more people know about it, the more people around who might, just might know that one tiny fandom you have been wanting fic for forever. 

(ps if you want to write MORE than three sentences that is totally allowed, as are multiple fills, shenanigans, and absurdity. it is the most low key and fun ficathon eveeeer.)

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (AH: Allie: I'm King fucking Arthur)

it is probably telling that it ended on my MC telling off and threatening the collective governments of earth for not being nearly good enough people and then going and destroying a facility experimenting on posthumans. and by destroying I mean completely and totally levelling it piece by piece after getting everyone out. 

It's not so much a coherent story as this wide, sprawling collection of things that are a big part of this universe I'm building around it, but I think it's a pretty fair amount of work for one month.

beta request, don't look if you're in crossover exchange )

right so

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (CA: Steve: I don't wanna get over you)
I am going to do a kind of big post right here. This is partially because I have been absolute crap at updating recently and therefore have a lot to, but also because I am procrastinating on a) NaNo, b) college essay, c) Crossover Exchange, and d) Yuletide. (I know, right, I just received my assignment and I'm already procrastinating. Even though I like my prompt. I'm a GENIUS at this stuff.)

FIRST OFF omg omg you guys you know the book Avalon High by Meg Cabot? spoilers for book and movie )

So yes I think you should all go watch that, or just like skip through anything that's not about her being awesome and then write fic about it because LADY. KING. ARTHUR. guys.

...sadfacing about brain )

anyways I love you all and someday I will write a PROPER update that involves things like Stuff That I'm Doing instead of just lists of things I'm procrastinating on and crying about. I promise.

oh and yes I also made like. a MASSIVE icons post. it is HERE.

it includes:
7 Avalon High (Allie as King Arthur)
16 Fables (Cinderella) (remind me to talk to you guys about Fables, DCnU, and Once Upon a Time at some point)
20 Alex Rider
7 Batman Beyond (Max Gibson)
7 Young Justice (Artemis)
7 The Authority
27 Miscellaneous Comics (Lady Sabre, X-Factor, Young Avengers, Birds of Prey, Ice, Wonder Woman, Stephanie Brown, Cassandra Cain, Aquagirl, Gunnerkrigg Court)

here are some of the icons in it 
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Default)
Right! So. Dearest of Yuletiders, I pretty much adore you, and I really love these stories, so I'll love pretty much anything you write for them.

I do want to give you some sort of suggestions as to more specific things I like, because I know that I like having some specifics, but don't feel too bound by anything I say. I like a huge range of stuff and I tend to forget to list half of what I like, so. 


stuff )

So, uh, yeah. I hope that's not too much detail, and I hope it's enough, and I'm really, really excited for whatever you will write. Seriously. If it's in one of these fandoms and avoids my triggers/squicks - I'm good. And also I love you for this, and I'd really like you to have fun writing this story above all, so. Please, do something that gives you joy.

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Default)

I interrupt my still-going-and-starting-to-catch-up NaNo to bring you this important news


And you want to do it.

um information about erasures - it is when you take a piece of writing and you pick and choose words from it to form a poem? it is SUPER FUN.

EXAMPLES: last round Lass did this one for me based on 'this temporary flesh and bone' and it is excellent! I did this one which is based on a Bond story by the lovely nextian. If those are not enough examples just browse through the erasureathon comm!

BASICALLY if you like language, poetry, words, etc. You will like erasureathon.

oh my god I keep misspelling things.

lol hi

 I will feel better when the stats stop telling me I'll finish on Dec. 15th. Which they won't stop telling me until it's not true anymore. Which means I have to write... two thousand something words? Which I won't accomplish tonight. But if I make word count tonight, I'll only have like - 2500 words to write tomorrow!

I am finally achieving some sort of breakthrough, which is good, because if I don't have any inspiration for NaNo but have loads for my RP characters, guess who gets written and who doesn't? 


p.s. oh my god I have to catch up so I can start writing college application essays I hate those things. also I need to write and ask for recommendations. also one of our hostel girls came home from a party drunk tonight. thank goodness I wasn't on duty. (instead I am on tomorrow. and don't even get the hour more sleep in of the weekend because some girls have to be let out early. and I worked like three extra hours Friday. I'm being cranky ignore me.)

so! NANOING FLIST, how's your novels going?

REST OF FLIST, how's life? I.. haven't checked anything in like three days now. Oops.

will be posting this on Tumblr too feel free to ignore it.
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (DC: Batgirl: smile and dodge)

1) NaNoWriMo with a 70,000 word goal. (LADY SUPERHEROES.)
2) reapplying to UofC if I get up the courage to ask for new recommendation letters. :/
3) RPing with my most lovely Maxine Gibson and Alex Rider! SO MANY FEELINGS. 
4) Still watching too much TV. Especially TV that involves superheroes. Especially tiny teenage superheroes who just want to snark in peace.
5) Working. As normal. 
6) Trying to make sure two of my hostel girls remain okay. One of them has some sort of long-term illness that she has never gotten addressed and the other is almost constantly on the verge of a psychological meltdown and her parents are not helping.


GOOD NIGHT. NaNo starts in an hour but I need to be sleeping because I have to be awake at 6.30 again tomorrow. I SHALL BEGIN TOMORROW. someone teach me how to write action scenes in the interim like ten hours. while I'm sleeping and working. that would be great.

ETA: So within half an hour of posting this I had to call the dean of girls for the sick girl and she went to hospital fifteen minutes later. And I have a protective streak, and I like her, and I'm the one who took her to the hospital when she had pneumonia and I've been pushing her to get a doctor's appointment ever since to figure out what's wrong and I am worrying my head off for her.

hey flist!

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Narnia: Susan: fire at will)
 I feel bad, I have been neglecting - um, everything?

I picked up a few people at the YJ friending meme! I feel like I should introduce myself, but I am really super bad at introductions. Um. Hi, I'm Betsy, I'm working in New Zealand for a year before college, I like reading and writing and music and watching things and LADIES and superheroes (and superhero ladies are double awesome) and politics in the sense of wanting to beat up all the politicians and do something myself and languages and silly things and RPing and Susan Pevensie. (You may think the last one is overly specific compared to the others. It is not. Susan Pevensie is the actual best. She is an entire category of awesome all by herself.)

NaNoWriMo is in five days! This is really exciting to me. I have been wanting to write and doing planning for writing a lot this past year, but I've been so fragmented in my actual writing, bits and pieces of things. NaNo makes me sit down and write a complete narrative, which is always a good and needed thing. HEY HEY HEY you should talk to me about NaNo, anyone else doing it or anyone who just wants to talk! 

Also Crossover Exchange (which I should get written this week if I am smart, which invariably I am not when it comes to deadlines), Yuletide when it comes around, and Festivids. 

some RL chatter! ) 

TV-wise, I have nothing but incoherent joy at Downton Abbey, even more incoherent joy for Young Justice (TEAM TEAM THIS TEAM OH MY GOD), an admission that I have GOT to catch up on Criminal Minds and Nikita, and a note that I've been watching a few episodes of Alpha and it seems quite interesting. But I am so open to discussing these shows, definitely.

And that is all I have for today! <3333 Love you guys!
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (DC: Batgirl: introduce a little mayhem)
right, so, a festividding letter.

Dear Festividder!

I love you. You are amazing. The idea of getting any vid for one of these fandoms is enough to make me jump up and down in my seat flailing joyfully. Thank you A TRILLION in advance! Below are some further thoughts in case you want them.

seriously you're awesome for doing this. )


Oct. 14th, 2011 04:29 pm
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (DC: Batgirl: smile and dodge)
 in much lighter fare than I've been recently!

I'm doing NaNoWriMo again, as I do - well, every year. :P this year it is teenage superheroes and the dawn of the superhero age! I want to get to know my characters a bit better, so I'd like to do a meme thing with you guys if I can? 

Three options!
1)  Give me one, two, or three characters and a prompt. (Anything from one word to a song.) I'll write ... something. 
2) Ask my characters questions about themselves. Anything goes!
3) Anything else you think will help me build their characters. :P

The characters are:

Pavati, 18, protagonist and main character, just graduated high school and acquired superpowers. Not a very brave person, retiring, considers herself a follower, highly developed sense of responsibility and justice, pretty naive. 
Andrea, 18, protagonist, Pavati's best friend, also just graduated. A big fan of explosions, sarcasm, and a fiercely loyal friend.
Terry, 16, protagonist, about-to-be-a-senior-and-turn-17, just realized he's a mutant/posthuman, geeky, very anti-government, increasingly bitter about how his kind are being treated. 
Mr. Brown, age unknown (middle aged), antagonist, in charge of the squads responsible for bringing down and imprisoning dangerous posthumans. Paranoid about posthumans. Willing to go to extremes to keep them down.
Hana Saab, early 30's, mostly antagonist, commander of the squad sent after Pavati. Has her doubts about the methods being used. 

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (YJ: Kaldur: bring it on)
Betsy rambles at Tumblr about how I Am Number Four could have been a way more interesting story with some crucial changes, and then gets wrought-up in general about sexism and racism in books/movies.

so I just watched I Am Number Four

first post )


"The sequel book is is called “The Power of Six” and has been out in the UK for a couple of months. You are aware that the film is based off the book by Pittacus Lore, right?"

Betsy still wants to smash things )


"Anonymous asked:
but the movie is based on a book, so we can't blame the movie for telling the wrong story-line

the book clearly told the wrong story too!

more explosions, guys. Who would pass up on MORE EXPLOSIONS. )

later post:

oh man guys I am being kind of serious and text-y today. uh, sorry?

problems! )

I would also like to add that I am fucking pissed that I live in a society that tries to tell me that because I am a woman it is weird that I like superheroes and action movies. (DOCTOR PEPPER I AM LOOKING AT YOU ASSHOLES) I think I just have a lot of rage today. most of the time I can acknowledge how fucked up society is without getting this angry about it. not today I guess. 

also I'm doing lady superheroes for NaNo! They will be awesome. :D

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Nikita: do not remember me as a bridge)
So NFE reveals went up a while ago and I - neglected to mention mine here. Or stick it on A03. This is now rectified!

a cloud tangled in the tale of a kite
Narnia. Liliandil. Liliandil/Caspian.
On LJ. On A03.
Her heart is beating very fast indeed, and where she can feel the pulse at the corner of his wrist his is as well.

This is actually more or less a sequel to last year's NFE, your least gesture beckoned a constellation. (I even titled them from the same poem. I know, I know.) At first I was kind of worried as to whether I could write another fic about Liliandil, but as it turns out I quite like her and writing her - I should do it more often, but then again her and Caspian's lives just make me really, really sad. I hope I did justice to her. There was more I wish I could have figured out how to put in, on her tangled loyalties and maybe some meta on how stars work, but I got stuck too many times when I tried and I didn't have enough time to make it work. (I think it would have taken a long time.)

I've been working on the last thing for the We Love The Women That Fandom Hates fest, but it keeps being too big and taking too long. It will show up someday, I promise. :P

real life stuff )

So there's a couple of icon memes going around! First round is from [personal profile] fallingtowers . :D

icon meme responses! )

Also have watched 2x01 of Downton Abbey and have a LOT of feelings about it. Feel free to ask me about them!
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (LotR: Eowyn: no more waiting)
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.)


recs and link to vid. )

Cassandra Cain

friendship! )

Artemis Crock

clip and comic panels )

Martha Jones (who was technically my Day 3 additional lady but I forgot halfway through that I needed to do two extra ladies because I was doing two days)

some recs! )

Ginny Weasley

a little bit of talking. )


Day 2 & 3

Sep. 11th, 2011 02:28 pm
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (DC: Batgirl: bad cop worse cop)
 Yesterday I was on duty or at a party all day, so there was no posting. It's still only day 2 for a lot of the world, though, so I don't feel too bad. :P Today I am also on most of the day, and I feel kind of like crap, so there will not be much today.

So for Day 2 & 3, you guys are getting tiny fics. This also comes with a tentative promise to write a three-sentence fic in comments for any prompts given. Prompts can be given for my main three characters, as well as my seven bonus ladies - Kara Thrace (Battlestar Galactica), Stephanie Brown (DC), Martha Jones (Doctor Who), Ginny Weasley (Harry Potter), Guinevere (Merlin), M'gann M'orzz (Young Justice), and Amy Pond (Doctor Who).

Narnia. Susan & Lucy. Gen. 173 words.

sisters! )

family affairs
DC. Cassandra Cain & Damian Wayne. Gen. 224 words.
spoilers for Gates of Gotham #5.

more family! )

secrets kept
Young Justice. Artemis & Dick Grayson. Gen. 316 words.
Spoilers for Young Justice 1x08.

I just feel like they should be best friends okay. )

three minutes down but who's counting
DC. Stephanie Brown and Dick Grayson. Gen. 436 words.

death traps and quipping all in a day's work. experience needed. )

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Narnia: Susan: fire at will)
 So it's day 1 of the lady love fest! I've got three ladies

 - Susan Pevensie (Narnia)
 - Cassandra Cain (DC)
 - Artemis Crock (Young Justice)

I figured Day 1 I would just talk a little bit about each of these amazing ladies and why I love them so much. I also have a plan to each day have a fourth segment where I do one little thing about a lady I didn't claim but who tends to be treated poorly in fandom. 

Also, I'm open to requests/suggestions/prompts for picspams, short (VERY short) fics, questions you'd like me to answer about those three ladies, etc. 

That having been said, on to Day 1!

Susan Pevensie

it's Narnia guys spoilers for that I guess? ) 

Cassandra Cain

spoilers for Cass' series ) 

Artemis Crock

spoilers for tie-in comic and show )




and that concludes Day 1 for me! GUYS I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE YOURS.

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Narnia: Susan: fire at will)

I think you will all appreciate this! and should join up and do it! :D

We Love The Women That Fandom Hates

GO GO GO. I want to see all the awesome lady posts on my flist! (Two guesses as to the two people I signed up with AND THE FIRST TWO DON'T COUNT.)

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (JLI: Bea: totally innocent)
hey guys! remember that time I did a movie shuffle meme and didn't finish the majority of them? I have three and a half free days and a completely empty hostel and this makes me feel like creating stuff. SO, here are three of them. :D

stuff for blueprints for escape )

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.)


Aug. 17th, 2011 07:46 pm
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (JLI: Bea: totally innocent)
I feel like doing memes okay. I also feel like talking about couples I love deeply, or find interesting, etc. etc. I don't wanna go to sleep or leave the internet, whyyyyyyy. 

Listed below are descriptions of some of the fictional couples that I ship. With the vagueness and obscurity, try to guess the people listed in the comments.

Most of these are canon ships, but there are a couple fanon and one crack crossover ship.

1. She's a girl who wants to be an investigative journalist, he's a smart mouthed but extremely intelligent and talented artist. Together, they fight aliens! Rani/Clyde from Sarah Jane Adventures, guessed by [personal profile] wordsatourbacks and wingedflight21.

2. She's new to this world, but so is he. He's emotionally stunted, she definitely isn't. They are absurdly adorable. Superboy/Miss Martian from Young Justice, guessed by katakokk

3. They are going to be the best damn monarchs EVER. (He can't cook.)

4. They played rooftop tag, bonded over evil dads, and believe in redemption wholeheartedly. Cassandra Cain/Stephanie Brown from DCU Comics, guessed by [personal profile] metonomia 

5. They were good together, weren't they? They were better than good. 

6. They've been in love since they were eleven, no matter how hard he swore she was insufferable. You can't tell me differently. Ron/Hermione from Harry Potter, guessed by [personal profile] kayloulee , grim_lupine, and wingedflight21. 

7. He used to be a king, now he's got an indeterminate job involving being a badass. He makes a great cup of coffee and is incredibly competent. Their relationship is based on five hours, give or take a bit. Edmund Pevensie (Narnia)/Ianto Jones (Torchwood), guessed by [personal profile] wordsatourbacks , flyakate and wingedflight21.

8. He's an uptight and competent professional, he's the emotionally intelligent guy who enjoys irritating him. Together, they steal secrets. Arthur/Eames from Inception, guessed by [personal profile] kayloulee , flyakate, and probing_grays.

9. She's a rogue agent on the run. She doesn't see a reason to live until she's given a mission. They just want to fix everything. And be in love. Alex/Nikita from Nikita, guessed by[personal profile] wordsatourbacks and wingedflight21

10. He's a space archaeologist with recurring death issues, she's the talented and gorgeous lying thief who just. won't. leave. Daniel Jackson/Vala Mal Doran from Stargate SG-1, guessed by [personal profile] alexseanchai and anastigmatfic. (Admittedly, the recurring death issues was kind of a dead giveaway.)

11. Snarky psychic seeking ferroequinologist. Shawn/Gus from Psych, guessed by [personal profile] wordsatourbacks 

12. You are my god-given solace. I'm angry with you right now, I'm not talking to you. Garcia/Morgan from Criminal Minds, guessed by eudaimon

Snagged from[personal profile] bedlamsbard .

Alfred Hitchcock said, "If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach." If I wrote a story today, what would the readers immediately look for?

Kind of curious!

ETA: It's a snow day here! ... There's not really much snow left, but it is a snow day!
