So, I just finished The Fiery Heart. I know it would end as it did, but still, that ending was brutal. Someone hold me.

Absolutely Yes, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, Lizzie/Darcy.

When Darcy sobers up, he plans on blaming the entire evening on Fitz.

Okay, so I deeply, deeply want to get my text-based fannish fix, so I’ve decided to give this whole dreamwidth thing a shot. I’m going to be attempting to cross-post between the two platforms and see how that goes.

Thus, advice on the following would be helpful:

  • cross-posting: how to not fuck it up

  • how to get the most fannish bang for your buck as far as posting on two platforms

  • something else that you don’t know enough to ask about

  • cool people to follow and cool places to hang out!

Also! I am considering just posting my fic on AO3 and linking it from my lj/dw/tumblr. Does anyone have a reason not to do this?

Yesterday involved adulthood kicking me in the teeth a couple times and then spitting on my face when it was sure I was down.

So that was the opposite of fun.

As soon as this week is over, I fully intend to spend this weekend writing and watching tv and reading comics. (On that subject, I'm taking smutty fic requests here.)


[+] Basically, Christmas is coming in July, I mean, there is a Yuletide-esque small fandoms exchange happening soon (posting deadline, 15 June). I am totally here for that.

[+] I read and loved the first issue of the new Ms. Marvel.

[+] Let's be real, there was no chance I wasn't going to do this meme, given that it's my go-to 'i want to not think about real life, help me flist, you're my only hope' meme:

Fandom Tennis Match Meme:

Okay, here's how this is going to work. You comment with a fandom question. I answer it and then ask you a question that has some thematic relevance to the question you asked me.

I saw Winter Soldier again tonight with my mom (my first review is here) and loved it, if anything, possibly more the second time.

Random thoughts:
Read more... )

I realize the above random list of things is does not give the proper squee-ful emotional beat - let it be stated that I totally left the movie pumped and I can't wait for all the CA2-inspired fics to start appearing.

This meme was absolutely, unapologetically filthy, there is no way I'm passing it up.

From brbshittoavenge:

Send me a pairing and a number and I'll write you a ficlet about one....

  1. … grinding up against the other

  2. … moaning the other’s name

  3. … stripping off

  4. … sexting

  5. … being drenched whilst wearing white

  6. … leaping into the other’s arms

  7. … pinning the other against a wall

  8. ... pinning the other down

  9. … tying up the other

  10. … spanking the other

  11. … having a “friend” over and the other accidentally interrupting

  12. … flashing the other

  13. … having a wet dream and about the other

  14. … leaving hickeys on the other’s neck

  15. … trying to play footsie with the other during a meeting

  16. … trying to go down on the other, under the table, during dinner

  17. ... just going down on the other, in general

  18. ... denying orgasm

  19. ... talking during sex about something non-sexual

Okay, so the basic premise of the new Gotham tv-show sounds like endless foreplay with no pay-off, but they're doing teenage Catwoman.

How do I not watch that?

I like poetry but I don't ever really seek out poetry, so I really appreciate it when people post it on tumblr and such. In that vein, each year, [ profile] musesfool posts a poem a day for national poetry month, and this was my favorite so far:

There is no going back ~Wendell Berry

No, no, there is no going back.
Less and less you are
that possibility you were.
More and more you have become
those lives and deaths
that have belonged to you.

You have become a sort of grave
containing much that was
and is no more in time, beloved
then, now, and always.
And so you have become a sort of tree
standing over a grave.

Now more than ever you can be
generous toward each day
that comes, young, to disappear
forever, and yet remain
unaging in the mind.

Every day you have less reason
not to give yourself away.

Has anyone read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell?

Because I got it from the library and I don't know if I want to keep reading.

One, because having a fandom front and central in a book makes me a bit uncomfortable (ignore the woman typing behind the curtain!).

Two, because I have the feeling that she's going to ~learn a lesson~ about going out into the world and being less shy.

And three, because she's a slash fangirl, and I have no fucking patience for interludes that are the "canon" of her slash pairing and no fucking patience for slash being written about in a completely unexamined (i.e. ladies, what ladies, why should there be ladies?) way.

Okay, a podcast I was listening to did this and it seemed like fun- here follows the 5 top-played songs on my iTunes:

(Note: apparently iTunes don't count a song as play unless I listened to it all the way to the very end; fyi, this HUGELY throws off the accuracy of my play count. A better gauge would if it counted songs that I listened to 75% of.)
