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* 

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. (SPN: Jo: a great big world)

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.

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. (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.)

Moffat! <3

+ 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

better now. )

fannish things!

Why I don't read porn. )

the Diana Gabaldon fiasco )

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.

+ I have my Remix assignment! I am quite pleased. We are matched on fandoms I am quite excited about writing in, wheee!

+ Last night I dreamed about my entire family being home, all together, doing crazy awesome things together, with a guest appearance by Mary, who had magically transported us all to New Zealand. Well, that didn't take much interpreting. *misses Mary*

+ Mary, you couldn't have warned me about 2x01? D: oh, CAMERON. John! PB&J KEEPS THE RESISTANCE OKAY. I finally get that icon of yours. :D

+ I have a very short poem tonight, and then tomorrow I get a Criminal Minds! which has so far been having favorable reactions in areas I trust, so YAY!

it is not so much that I miss you by Dorothea Grossman

It is not so much that I miss you
as the remembering
which I suppose is a form of missing
except more positive,
like the time of the blackout
when fear was my first response
followed by love of the dark.

+ Am now all caught up with SPN, having finally watched the last four episodes. Oh, SPN. I am very glad I have never let you completely take my heart or it would be completely shattered right now. As is I am sad and worried and upset and at the same time SO impressed with what you are doing with the story. COME ON GUYS THINGS HAVE TO WORK OUT. Caaaaastiel! )

+ Leverage! This was actually about a month ago now (three weeks?) but I finally watched all the way through the Season 2 finale and ohhhhh my heart. OH TEAM. like familyyyy )

+ Criminal Minds returns next week! with what looks to be actually quite an interesting episode. The people for the spin-off intrigue me more and more the more previews I see. we shall seeeee!


Now off to bed, after I take a quick shower and brush my teeth! for I must be awake at 5 in order to get to the sunrise service at church. (I always go to the sunrise service on Easter. You don't have to be a Christian to appreciate the feeling of sanctity and joy that it has.)
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (White Collar: OT3: bound by trust)
Watched Criminal Minds 5x13, Risky Business )

I also watched most of Supernatural 5x11, "Sam, Interrupted." I dunno, it was okay. I wasn't in a very effective SPN-watching mood. I need to be feeling fine and happy, and I'm feeling more reclusive and worried. I think I'm going to have to rewatch it sometime - parts of it were hilarious, and parts of it were really, really interesting, and I want to watch them and be able to be interested and have thinky thoughts. Which I can't do right now.

And lastly! I used the last few remaining days of holiday (no homework until yesterday) to watch all eight episodes of White Collar, which has also been recommended to me. And it is indeed glorious, because Neal Caffrey is a shiney shiney thing of beauty, and the OT3 is quite an OT3 (El, I ADORE you!), and the latest episode was fantastic and the one before that was fabulous too (OUT OF A JUDGE'S WINDOW). so this goes on my list of shows to watch. (White Collar. Criminal Minds. Supernatural. huhhh. this is beginning to seem like A Type. and I don't even like most cop shows! apparently just very specific cop shows. I can't get enough interest in Numb3rs to watch it consistently, or, uh, any other cop show I've been told to watch except for The Unusuals.)

oh yeah! I watched two episodes of Bones at one point over the holiday. I... I don't know, you guys. I want to like it, I really do. And Temperance is really awesome some of the time, and Booth is awesome too (Boreanaz! that man can act), but something is missing, and I had lots and lots of problems with how unprofessional Temperance is, and how flip-floppy Booth's characterization was in the Pilot. I don't know. I have been told it just keeps getting better, but unfortunately we're now at a point where soon I won't have time to keep watching. So! if I'm to keep watching Bones, I'm going to need some really good Season 1 episodes to check out. Bones fans! what are the best/most necessary Season 1 episodes?

Watched Criminal Minds 5x12 )

agh agh agh. must stop procrastination. I've set myself a deadline of Monday to start whittling down on it, and I've been working on it a little bit over the holiday (not heading straight for the computer in the morning - cleaning up my room first, doing some other housework, getting food) and I mean, it's the holidays. procrastination then is understandable. but it does need to stop now. I need to get myself organized on Monday, I need to lay out a schedule, and while I can't stop the procrastination all in one fell swoop (that has NEVER worked), I can at least get myself started. and I need that.

Tuesdays and Thursdays are going to be a nightmare. I've been almost completely isolated over the past three weeks (well, almost a month, actually), even partially from the internet (that's why I've been commenting at a pretty low rate and not posting almost at all) and it's been heaven. Jumping headlong back in (three classes and then choir) is going to feel a little like hell. Get through one week at a time. Reacclimate. I can totally do this. I am, however, totally looking forward to my classes. school & learning, OMG. yay!
be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Misc: Text: keep calm and carry on)
huhhh. that's weird.

let's see, summing up the year/decade. it was awesome? I met almost all of you guys this year? I dunno! I suck at summarizing.

ALTHOUGH. omg Criminal Minds you guys I am so happy I found this show! it is chock full of lovely comraderie and intelligence and smart smart people working to stop bad guys and fantastic portrayal of women and victims and the bad guys, who are not always bad guys so much as people-who-totally-cracked-and-really-need-help. have I mentioned how very, very hot I find competence? which everyone on this show has in spades? YEAH. and Reid is adorable and nerdy and fabulous, and Garcia is freaking hilarious and so awesome, and Prentiss omggg and Hotch! and Rossi! and Morgan! and JJ! ... yeah, I'm devolving into incoherence. it's just, I have not found a show I want to/have been rewatch(ing) this much since Avatar, and you guys know how well that show was characterized and how much sheer awesome there was in it.

if we're being serious, probably the most important thing that's happened in 2009 was meeting all of my new online friends, who have really helped me screw my head on at least straight enough that this year, I think I have a chance of working out some of my issues. I've managed to drum it into myself that I have the ability to remove myself from a situation that I know is going to go south, and that this isn't something I've made up (... still working on that one, actually, because every time I talk about it I feel guilty for dumping my crap on everyone else). And I've dealt as far as I can with the fact that my dad's not going to acknowledge his own problem and get it fixed, and I'm actually getting better at this whole regulating myself thing. not fabulous, but better. the icon on this post and my default one ("I am out of my goddamn fool mind and I am going to own this shit.") have basically been my mindsets this year. I'm kind of hoping to expand that this year to like, have a good time or something. :P

which leads to my one New Year's goal: learn to manage my time better. and yeah! that's about it for a new year.

still. I'm staying up till twelve, just so I can hi to the new year, and make it promise to be wonderful.
