Dear Yuletide Writer,

Dear Yuletide Writer,


I mean, we've got at least one fandom in common, so clearly I think you have great taste, and I'm already excited to have you writing for me. :D This letter, uh, got away from me in places -- don't worry, I'm fully on board the "optional details are optional" train! I know some people prefer lots of details; I've written all of this just in case you're one of them, but if you're not, that's totally fine. ♥

general stuff )

bottom of the river (music video) )

15 ways to stay alive - daphne gottlieb )

fast and furious series )

the elder scrolls iv: oblivion )

Okay, that's (finally) it! :D: I hope at least some of that was helpful!

My body's been one big mess of hurt and exhaustion since the semester started and (spoiler alert) I am very tired of it. ;____; I've missed a bunch of classes already and I'm way behind on everything. I mean, I'm also behind because I've been really lazy in addition to being sick. And I think I'm suddenly, inexplicably burned out on school already, despite being so eager to get back.

That said, classes are fun and being around friends a lot is even more so. I just wish my body and brain would get with the program and let me enjoy it and maybe also, y'know, not doom myself to failure. ;__; I also keep flip-flopping on the grad school vs. not grad school thing, which is ridiculous because I'm stressing myself out over something I can't even apply to for another year. /o\

ANYWAY. Yuletide's coming up! I wasn't going to do it this year -- not sure if I mentioned it here or not, but the gift I wrote last year got some really weird, nasty anon comments out of nowhere and it pretty much soured it for me completely -- but then nominations started happening and I just got too excited about it all. :D: I've currently got Oblivion (as in Elder Scrolls, not Tom Cruise), Professor Layton, Adventure Time, and fifteen ways to stay alive as my noms -- not sure Adventure Time will make it through, but we shall see! I'm still working on my character nominations, especially for Oblivion, since there a million and one NPCs and I LOVE ALL OF THEM. Not sure about requests, either -- I'll probably just request Emmy from Layton, regardless of who I end up nominating, and Marceline + PB. I don't even know who/what to nom/request for the poem. Narrator? You? Her? Wolves? I'll probably just leave that one blank.

Sorry for the rambling, but YULETIDE. :D

Anyhow, I have no idea what else to write about, I just want to get back in the habit of journalling again. \o? I watched this Wonder Woman movie tonight and while I had issues with... pretty much everything, it was still kind of awesome and I'm really not sure why they can't do a live-action Wonder Woman? Also, the special features were well worth the $5 the DVD cost me. I have so many feelings about feminism and comics and mythology and these teeny documentaries need to be a million times longer.

Okay, that's it for real, I think!

New year's resolution: to boldly go.

Also, hello Dreamwidth! I fell off the journal wagon, tried to ease myself back into the swing of things by only checking LJ, am still too intimidated to even look at my flist over here, but I will start afresh in the morning. I've missed you very much! ♥ I hope you're all doing splendidly, and I'm excited to catch up.

...hi! /o\ So, uh, I realize I did a friending meme and then disappeared off the face of the universe. Apologies? I have no excuses or explanations or, y'know, any kind of reason. HI GUYS! I am a person who exists and I am going to try to get better at, uh, proving that I exist by interacting. /o\ /o\ /o\ I am terrified to even attempt backreading, so. HOW ARE YOU?

[livejournal.com profile] rarewomen happened, and I got the most amazing Doctor Who story! the courage of your lungs: 5 people Jenny ran into while saving the universe -- this is the fic of my dreams, you guys. Daydreams, I mean, because my dreams are generally dull yet creepy, and this is the total opposite of that. But literally everything I have wanted since seeing The Doctor's Daughter, except now I'm a little sad that this isn't a TV show. I want to watch it every single day. ;______;

school stuff blah blah I'm probably dropping out again NO ONE IS SHOCKED )

ANYWAY, we shall see, I guess! In better news, today I bought my mom part of her mother's day gift (a Hellboy one-shot featuring a bunch of puppies!) and got free tea and napped and felt a lot less sick (cutting coffee and meat out of my diet has improved things exponentially, which makes me a little sad but mostly grateful) and Nan visited and I watched TV with my mom, and really I guess it's been a good day, even if the education part was terrible. \o?

YOU GUYS! I signed up to be a Team Captain at [livejournal.com profile] marvelgames2012. :D I'm on Team Action/Adventure (awwww yeah) and I am ridiculously psyched -- I'm all about comics and superheroes and excited teams of fans and competition and action/adventure and fanworks and organizing things, so obvs this is right up my alley. Team Humor still needs a captain, though, and they're taking volunteers for the next few days before signups begin.

You can:
* sign up to be a Co-Captain for Action/Adventure and we shall become a force to be reckoned with and destroy all competition!
* wait until general signups start and be on my team and we shall become a force to be reckoned with and destroy all competition!
* volunteer as tribute sign up as Captain or Co-Captain for another team and we can have a sexy rivalry or something?
* wait until general signups start and be on someone else's team, see if I care :( (actually I really don't, be on whichever team floats your boat! it'll be fun either way!)
* not sign up and spend your summer eating fiber and watching The Mentalist or something I guess

Anyway, here's the official info-type thing, since... I haven't actually given out any information, unless BE ON MY TEAM LET'S WIN THINGS is information.

Sign-Ups Start April 14th
Sign-Ups End April 24th

Info | FAQs | Schedule | Sign-Ups
[livejournal.com profile] marvelgames2012 is an interfandom, interdisciplinary "competition" where writers/artists/vidders come together to compete for the challenge of Grand Tournament Champions. Unlike other challenges, however, you do not have to be a writer/artist/vidder to participate. Teams need cheerleaders, fact checkers, betas, plot bunny providers, shoulders to cry on & more. Everyone can participate in the Preliminary Challenges to earn points towards the Grand Tournament Championship.

Currently, [livejournal.com profile] marvelgames2012 is taking volunteers for Team Captains and Co-Captains. Please see this post for more information. (Don't forget to check out the other links too!) Team Captains need to be assigned by April 7th April 14th so it's first come, first serve. Team Humor is currently the only team without a captain.
Grand Tournment begins August 1st, leaving just over 3 months to complete a fic/art/vid for submission for your team. More information can be found [livejournal.com profile] marvelgames2012.

In other news, today and yesterday have been warm and sunny and I don't know what to make of that, where am I, is this spring, what is sunshine, I don't understand. (It's so nice, though! Almost all the snow's gone, although there's a chance of flurries the weekend :/) And... that's all I've got for now, it is DEFINITELY naptime.

In other news: getting on with life is strange, but it's happening -- it's seriously weird, though, looking for things to fill my days rather than scrambling to divide my time, plus living with the quiet, hollow feeling I'm never going to be able to shake. I signed up for Postcrossing and have five cards to send out this week; I signed up for MyHogwarts and am happily settling in to my Ravenclaw dorm; work drama seems to be smoothing itself over; I'm housesitting again at my friends' place and enjoying the hell out of their video game/DVD collection; I've got to take a serious look at the state of my finances, as well as get my taxes done, but I'm putting that off for at least another few days. Oh! And I've got the first story in the Avengers-movieverse-jammed-into-a-modern-Westeros series I'm planning juuuuust about done -- anyone interested in beta reading a fic about there always being a Stark in Winterfell? :D? :D? I've got a couple of scenes left, but expect it'll be done in another day or two (or three).

How are you guys doing? I am feeling mighty disconnected -- and was even before this godawful past week -- but I'm getting caught up yet again, and it's good to be back around. :)

I've basically looking a hot mess, uh, this whole year so far -- stomach flu + Christmas + being sick all January + somehow losing a chunk of February to winter blues and then spending the next two weeks catching up = getting my hair cut almost three months later than I'd planned. The poor woman who did my hair today, oh my goodness. She's almost as good as my doctor when it comes to telling me why the things I do are wrong without shaming me about doing them, so that's awesome! And she did magic things and I no longer look like an Entwife that got covered in moss and was consequently settled by a colony of exceptionally fuzzy brushtail possums, and I feel so great about that.

Today's other big adventure: getting a crash-course in all the stuff I will need to know for work for the next month. I am... really, really unprepared, BUT I will be mostly unsupervised, which means I can work the way I work best: frantically googling something I know very little about, then spending my every waking moment obsessing about every tiny detail until I get frustrated and overwhelmed, do it all in an hour and declare it finished to whoever's overseeing the project, then ignoring its existence forever unless someone specifically brings it up. \o?

In other news, approximately 99% of my thoughts this week have revolved around Brian O'Conner and werewolves. Who do I file a complaint with about this, because I have things I need to finish and not a single one of them includes Brian O'Conner. >:(

rambling about writing! avengers fic, fast and the furious fic, original fic, oh my )

ANYWAY BASICALLY: writing! I enjoy it! And planning out writing! Which I enjoy even more than writing! WHY DON'T I EVER REMEMBER THIS, GUYS. I'm always like "Ugh I guess I have to do some writing," as if someone's blackmailing me to write fanfiction or poems or paranormal dystopian lesbians, and then I finally sit down after days of procrastination and after five minutes I'm just like :D! :D! :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD! Someone remind me of this next time I am whining about writing, yeah?

Why hello there, LJ/DW! I have been mostly absent, and I apologize! I wish I had a good excuse, but the truth is pretty ridic -- my old DW layout was hurting my eyes, so I mostly stopped reading my flist for awhile. /o\ And eventually when I was less overwhelmed with life I tried to find a new one, but I couldn't find one bright and clean enough for my tastes, and then the one I DID find that I liked made reading my flist really difficult, so... I didn't. /o\ And then felt bad about commenting on LJ when I hadn't been keeping up with DW. /o\/o\/o\ (Also, hella anxiety these days, which has led to a lot of half-filled out comment pages being closed because "Oh my gosh that sounds bad does that sound bad? What if they think I'm being sarcastic/mean/stupid/horrible? Better not say anything at all!" which I know intellectually is stupid, but knowing =/= feeling, sadly.

So, uh, hey guys! How's tricks? I wish I could say I'd been busy and doing amazing things in my absence, but truthfully, today was the first day in over a week I left the house for anything but work (and given that I've only been working weekends, uh. wow, self. I was housebound for no real reason from 6pm Sunday to 8:30pm Friday /o\) and my home time was mostly spent watching the first season of Parks and Rec and logging 30 hours on a Pokemon game over the course of four days. idek. I have no idea what else I've done, aside from not sleeping, occasionally working in weekend-long spurts, living on a diet of Pop-Tarts and coffee, and being on Tumblr. :/ My boss at job #1, who I adore and who is the best boss anyone could ever hope for, is leaving, job #2 stiffed me on payday, and I am dealing with those things by... resolutely ignoring them at best, staying up all night worrying about them at worst. I backread every Tumblr about shitty tattoos I could find, and am now consumed with the desire to get a tattoo but the total fear that it will end up being a shitty one. Basically: hello, I have been being dull and also anxious for the past few weeks.

Anyhow! I discovered how to import my LJ layout to here, and I went to a hockey game today, and I watched a Vin Diesel movie tonight, and tomorrow I'm going to the hospital with my mom (for a relatively minor thing, no worries!), so, like. It's a brave new world, I guess! One where I actually look at my flist and leave the house voluntarily and do things I want to do rather than continuing to do things I don't want to do anymore just because I have an obsessive need to keep doing something until I reach a logical place to take a break and some things just don't have that logical place. (I'm looking at you, Pokemon Pearl. Also, my definition of logical probably doesn't fit with the actual definition, ftr.)

So! I'm back and I hope you all are well. Going to catch up after sleeping + hospital + haircut I hope oh my goodness it's terrible, but in the meantime: hi, guys! How are you?

if you see this, post a poem.

Wild Geese

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting--
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

- Mary Oliver

Still sick (and kind of wondering if I have strep, but I haven't had a fever in two days and most of the aching's gone, and the headache's a little better, so I think I'm on the mend, even if my throat's just as raw?), still not caught up on anything at all, including real life. /o\ So much for getting a head start on the new year, but whatever, I have been writing down ideas for stories I want to write and list of things I need to do and budget stuff, so when real life begins again, I AM TOTALLY READY FOR IT. \o?

Speaking of ideas, you know what fic I want more than anything in the world? spoiler alert captain america is involved, everyone is shocked! spoilers for the comics, i guess, although this would be movieverse? )

Anyway, wow, it's 4:30 am and I should probably try to sleep again. I just get so panicked when I'm sick, and sleeping is so difficult. :( Possibly I'm just going to (finally!) finish that Doctor Who fusion thing and work on my big bang fic and continue to be bleary-eyed and make pathetic noises. OH ALSO. I watched the second Fantastic Four movie today -- I thought it was the first one when I grabbed it from the library, but I still made myself watch it because now it's overdue and I AM GETTING MY FIFTEEN CENTS OUT OF THIS MOVIE, goddammit. And I did! And that's about all it was worth, tbh. However, I really want Sue/Johnny fic and the universe doesn't seem to have ANY. At all. I don't understand. :(

Yuletide reveals are up! I wrote two things: my main gift and one for Yuletide Madness. :D

don't have to know the words -- Captain America, Steve/Bucky, wherein Bucky's injured and bored and kind of a troll, but Steve countertrolls him. With kisses. Also, there's huddling for warmth! :D? I struggled with this one (I kept coming up with ideas, writing a few hundred words, then realizing they didn't work or I had issues with what I'd written or it was something I would have needed much more time to do justice to) but it was that kind of thing where you're like FUCK YEAH I AM DOING THIS THING, and I ended up having a lot of fun.

just a change I'm going through -- Macdonald Hall, gen, wherein there are superpowers. :D: Also, hell yes that IS a Big Wolf on Campus theme song lyric as the title, what of it? :DDD

In other news, I know I owe like eight billion people comments and emails, and I haven't checked my flist all day, pretty much, but my body's decided to ring in the new year with a cold and I am tired and achy. :( I just took a naproxen, so I'm basically just... hanging out online for another few minutes until it kicks in and I can actually lie down without backache. Sigh. (I did have a fabulous New Year's Eve, though, and I hope you all have had a good couple of days. ♥ Happy new year, lovelies!)

new year's resolutions!

#1 involves food; probably not especially triggery, but avoid if you want to err on the side of caution )

2. Shoot more things! Probably with airsoft guns and not real ones, since the firearms safety course/licensing stuff is proving impossible to get information on. MAYBE I WILL JUST BUY A CROSSBOW. Ultimate goal is to have Hawkeye-aim!

3. Get better at krav maga, okay if you haven't guessed by now, 2012's theme is THIS YEAR I WILL BE A SUPERHERO.

4. Writing stuff: write at least 100000 words (altogether, on any/all projects), write three short stories and twenty poems, finish one big bang fic, and attempt NaNoWriMo if possible.

5. School stuff: do the academic boot camp thing before heading back to school, get a 4.0 GPA, submit all papers on time.

6. Work/money stuff: keep resume updated, pick up a student job while in school while keeping other two jobs, get a student line of credit, pay all bills on time, end the year with money in my savings account and no debt. (Fingers crossed on this one, but I think it might be doable!)

7. Start new holiday traditions! I mentioned this on Tumblr, how Christmas generally makes me twitchy and sad, not to mention stressed, so I would like to add fun, random things to the holidays, whether they make sense or not. And not just Christmas! Like Valentine's Day! St. Valentine is the patron saint of beekeepers, so obviously I will be celebrating February 14th with a Pushing Daisies marathon and a viewing of Eddie Izzard's Glorious. COVERED IN BEEEEEES

8. MAKE A TESSERACT OUT OF MINI-MARSHMALLOWS AND TOOTHPICKS. I've had this as a goal forever and just never got around to it. THIS YEAR IS THE YEAR.

9. Start a Pokemon game from the beginning, build an awesome team, and defeat the Elite Four. This will probably be the only thing on this list I actually do.

10. Have fun. Have a lot of fun. HAVE ALL THE FUN THAT IS TO BE HAD.

Anyone up for beta reading a short Iron Man fic? :D? :D? It's around 1500 words, Doctor Who fusion, Time Lord!Tony and companion!Pepper. I was planning on using it as the prologue for my avengers_bang fic, but it just wasn't working out the way I wanted it to, so I'm leaving it where it is (at least for now) and instead doing the ASOIAF fusion I already have a good few thousand words of (and a solid outline of what needs to happen between which characters, even though I uh still haven't worked out the plot /o\).

In other news! I saw the new Sherlock Holmes movie today and I don't know if I liked it but I really, really enjoyed it, if that makes sense. I've decided that what I want more than anything is a fic where Irene, Mary, and Sim team up to kick ass and take names, a la Birds of Prey.

In other other news, more new friends, hi! :DDDD I just did an intro post over here. I'm still struggling to get caught up on my flists on both DW and LJ, so I apologize if my commenting is sparse between now and the first few days of January! But I am very, very glad to have you all here. A couple of things I want to mention, though:

* All my fannish stuff, including fanworks, and vague stuff without too many RL details will be left unlocked on Dreamwidth, while anything talking about real life in general will be locked. I'm more than happy to chat about fandom things with anyone who wants to leave a comment, so if you're not all that interested in the RL stuff but want to subscribe to the public stuff and chat every now and then, that's totally fine!

* Every day is defriending amnesty day in my books. Sometimes people don't click, and again, that's totally fine! I promise not to get butthurt about it if you defriend me. Unless we're, like, RL friends or we talk all the time or what have you, in which case I'll mostly just be confused and will probably message you going "DID I DO SOMETHING WRONG???" because, like. If I owe you an apology, I want to make that apology happen. ♥

I think that's all! It's so far beyond time for me to be in bed, oh my gosh. Night, lovelies!

orders of business:

1. I'm behind on my flist already /o\ This... is probably something I should have put in my intro post: hi, new friends! I read every post, but sometimes I don't reply to stuff until days and days later, if at all. /o\/o\/o\

2. I've been making a lot of new year's resolutions, and a lot of plans -- one of said resolutions is to make myself academically awesome before I go back to school, and one of said plans is a list of reading material I want to get through before I start classes this summer. So! Anyone have any recs for anything good that pertains to archaeology, history (especially ancient history, but medieval is also good, along with anything related to agriculture or science), folklore, mythology, orrrr just any non-fiction that you enjoyed? :D? :D?

3. More Yuletide (and Yuletide Madness!) recs:

One Last Lick (Machete, Luz/Sartana) -- I got a fic during Yuletide Madness this year! :DDDD And it is great! Short and sweet and really, really sexy. *_____*

more fic! )

I've yet to read most of the Avengers-related or Community stuff, since I was mostly focusing on all the smallest fandoms, so I've got a lot of reading left to do and I AM EXCITED. :DDDDD

4. Seeing the new Sherlock Holmes tomorrow with my bff [livejournal.com profile] amber_crystal! :DDDDD

5. I ordered the first seasons of Parks and Rec (which I've never seen, but thanks to Tumblr I quote it all the time and also I lead a Ron Swanson appreciation life) and Pushing Daisies (show of my heart!) tomorrow, and I think I'm going to try to watch all of Game of Thrones before they get here (which should be the first or second week of January). It's quite possible that some of my new year's resolutions involve watching a lot of TV. :D: Mostly, there's a lot of things I started and never finished, despite liking, and also a lot of things I've been meaning to watch but never got around to it. This year is the year I watch ALL THE THINGS.

6. ♥

7. eta Almost forgot -- I got a migraine and I've been trying to trace a possible trigger and I've got seriously nothing, and if it is actually the LJ issue that's been causing other people problems, oh my god LJ we are seriously done professionally.

Merry Christmas! ♥ Today was a, uh, trying day on several levels, as was yesterday, but I channeled my frustration and anger into cleaning the bathroom, which was a fantastic outlet for said frustration, plus my bathroom is spic-and-span for the first time in ages (as long as you don't look in the cupboard or drawers or medicine cabinet or, uh, bathtub). Rage-cleaning aside, it was a pretty decent Christmas overall. :) Also! Yuletide Yuletide Yuletide, ahhhh! :DDDD The fic I received was how i live now, a Jennifer's Body fic that's set after the movie and the tone and voice are spot-on and the language is gorgeous and ahhhhhh, happiest. :DDDD And I also appear to have received a Yuletide Madness fic, too, so I'm excited to see that! :D

other Yuletide fic I've enjoyed! )
I've made it about as far as the Bs on the fandom list and a few other random ones, and I feel like I am bloated as much from fic as I am from turkey. :D Anyhow -- hurray Yuletide! So excited to read through the rest of the tiny fandoms I like.

Also, hi new people! I was planning on doing an intro post, but that will have to wait, because I keep dozing off and it's a little embarrassing. Anyway, hello, it is good to have you here. ♥
