screencap meme #3, Reply 1997, naruto 693, misc

Ok, I was going to wait until I had something more substantial to post, but meh. Below lies a bucket of unrelated things. Firstly: finished the screencap meme!

Rachel Summers + Colours Abound; Charles Xavier + Up Close and PersonalCollapse )

Plus Outlander picspam because why notCollapse )

Thoughts on Reply 1997, AKA the only substantial part of this postCollapse )

I lied I also have feelings about Naruto 693Collapse )

Movies: X Men, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - no spoilersCollapse )

+ My Yuletide fandoms were accepted \o/ Granted, this is not a surprise, considering they don't have 100 eligible fics between them on the entire internet, but I'm still happy. In perhaps more relevant news to my f'list, "The 100" has been accepted too, so if you're uncertain because you wouldn't know what to offer...

+ Last but not least,

fills so far for the Anything but Song Lyrics comment-a-thon

I have been trying to write this prompt and it kinda isn't working. Oh well.

+ RL talk: I had laser eye surgery today (unplanned), thought I was fine afterwards until I arrived back in the city centre, and proceeded to wander around hiding from the noon sun and its BLINDING LIGHT until I could find a bus to get back home. FUN TIMES. I'm feeling fine now - spent the evening hiding in my dark room.

my friends are the worst (picspam meme #2, music)

Normally I would wait a while before posting again, but I wanted to do this meme that ever_neutral tagged me in.

You can tell a lot about someone by the type of music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your iPod, phone, iTunes, media player etc and write down the first 20 songs. Then pass this on to 10 people. One rule: no skipping.

Songs and commentaryCollapse )

Also, picspams and stuff:

The Borgias + Scenerygasm/Colours AboundCollapse )

Random Outlander picspam thingCollapse )

++ In other news, I just finished watching Princess Tutu, which is the smartest, most self-aware magical ballerina duck romance story that every tv show could ever hope to be. But since I watched it over 48 hours, I need a break from tv.

Finally:



  • Current Location: down the road
  • Current Mood: lolz
  • Current Music: the buzz of the computer

sundry and stuff. (picspam meme #1, fdtd, yuletide)

[0] real life: is tiring but satisfying, which is all I can ask for tbh. I have enjoyed the past 3 weeks a lot, though my thumb will probably never recover.

[1] So, that new vampire show, From Dusk Till Dawn, which is... probably my current fandom, especially now that I have a set of HD screencaps on my computer. (Second only to Naruto which is finishing anyway.) It is also the only tv show I am remotely close to having caught up on, so theres that.

Set me freeCollapse )

[2] The next things on my to-watch list are Princess Tutu, Orphan Black, Outlander (which I'm behind on). And... Ancient Chinese Dramas. Lotus Lantern (+ its prequel), which is probably my fave tv series ever. Since I already have them downloaded, they are probably next. I am also tentatively considering KDramas - Reply 1997 and Shut Up Flower Boy Band mainly because of what I've heard about them. I'm kind of curious, all right?

[3] The only thing I have to say about what's happened in the past chapters of Naruto, up until chapter 691, is this: After all that has happened, nothing seems to surprise me any more. I’m pretty tired of it, honestly. (courtesy of Haruno Sakura, chapter 691)

[4] YULETIDE, RIGHT? WHO'S EXCITED. I have so many fandoms I want to nominate and/or request, and I don't know which to prioritiiiiiiise. My current selection of things I want:

Fandoms & charactersCollapse )

[5] I love ship memes lets do another one:

my “FOREVER” pairing:
my “sometimes” pairing (if i’m in the mood):
my “friends-with-benefits” pairing:
my “adele” pairing (“WE COULD HAVE HAD IT AAAAAALL”):
my “hate sex” pairing:
my “working on it” pairing:
my favorite threesome / poly ship:
my platonic "their friendship is too precious to mess it up with romance" ship:
my “i love it but don’t want it to happen” pairing:
my “it started out crack but now it’s serious and i regret everything” pairing:
my endgame pairing:
my “across time and space they will always find each other” pairing:
my “settling for second choice” pairing:
my "I don't want to ship it but I do" pairing:



[6] I'm still working on the picspams! Finished ones so far:

Alice Morgan + silhouetteCollapse )
Emma BBC + tickles my pickleCollapse )
Jane Foster + colours aboundCollapse )
From Dusk Till Dawn + bruised and battered (spoilers till 1x07 ish)Collapse )

current (1)

you'll always be my friend. you know too much.

fluffyfrolicker and kwritten did it and I am a sheep. Helpless but to follow. Comment and tell me:

The HOW THE FUCK DID WE BECOME FRIENDS?
We can basically all reminisce and flail about everyone's awesomeness. #feels


Other stuff
---> FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANT, xx_pinkstar WHERE ARE YOU AND HAVE YOU READ THE NEWEST NARUTO CHAPTER YET? GO GO GO, I have been crying a lot on tumblr and I need more people to descend into a vortex of feelings with me.
---> I did not manage to see X-Men: Days of Future Past. Alas, the times never suited me during the weekday, and I refused to bus 2 hours to go and see it by myself.
---> However, I did finish watching Community s1 with its delightful colours and delightful relationships and delightful commentary. I'm still too easily squicked by the embarassment factor to continue watching, but let it be known that I concurr that Modern Warfare was a brilliant piece of television, and the show thus far as generally, if you couldn't tell, been great overall. I even found myself fond of Jeff/Annie though I went in refusing!! to be ~affected!! by them!! (But generally, all the relationships are delightful. Except Pierce and Chang, who I both find pretty gross.)
---> Also, Luther s1 and Alice/John. And Alice. And John. And everyone. The show is wonderfully compelling and well-written, and, excuse me, It's you who's right. There is love in the world. Best scene or creepiest scene, or best? It's also a remarkably pretty show. Watching it concurrently with Community makes me realise how shinily bright Community's colours are, while Luther is all full of negative space, a case of the aesthetics really fitting each show well.
---> I started a tumblr side blog. It has been my most successful venture on that site so far.
---> Reading Shingeki no Kyojin was a good life choice even though I will probably never sleep again. Never considered myself a horror fan, but damn. A series where I love everyone in this bar and would never, ever want to inhabit their world, EVER. But how could I not go for a series where a guy's ~greatest power was being "weak enough" to emphasize with other people, where the ~genius jerk is not, in fact, a jerk, but a professional, so many wonderful women, and never trying to simply things down. Basically everything I wanted from a horror war story.
---> Much time was spent reading sunclouds33 recent meta and not-so-recent meta. Of particular note, Xander Harris pairings (which I requested), Wesley/Lilah and Wesley/Angel (and like the shipper I am, I had to delurk and comment on the W/L parts) thoughts on Don/Betty (Mad Men) though I haven't watched much of the show, and some marvellous insight into the Dollhouse characters
---> The real reason I haven't been on LJ though is not tumblr. It's because I have been racing levelling-up in AdventureQuest (online game) for the past two months because I am obsessed like that.
---> Um. That's about it.
---> No, I lie. I'm not sure whether to be amused whether no one, apparently, knows what I ship. Tut.

Ok what has everyone else been up to?

30 days of ships (in one day) + fic

First off, awesome things that are awesome:


Fix It Comment Ficathon


+ I wrote something! For a different ficathon, but nevertheless, I wrote a thing.

she is mine and i am hers. vampire academy, lissa/rose. ~600 words. all ages. @ ao3, ffnet
Lissa did wonder, when she woke, what Rose had achieved in Europe. Had Rose managed to find the ancient beauty among the shadows? Did Rose have the time to think about geometric colours and bold colours, when she was without someone she loved?

Lissa found it difficult enough.


For the impromptu ficathon. Set during Blood Promise. Lissa ruminates and misses her best friend.


I have a break for the next two weeks! Once I finish two assignments, anyway. (This is why I'm on el jay - every time I look at the assignment I have the urge to open up another browser tab.) But because of that, I decided to do a ship meme 'cos I am me. Created by leobrat and used by me to see exactly how much many tags I could conceivably fit onto a post.

Ships, a lot of shipsCollapse )
otc: incredible

but i must (bsg + the borgias ships)

1) Guys - in case you haven't noticed my focus in the past couple of days - I need you to tell me to get out of the Naruto ship wars on tumblr. Right now I'm just browsing through, but then yesterday I started a side tumblr just to archive all the flames I see*. I am this close to reblogging with snarky comments that will definitely be seen. SAVE ME.

* it is scary how quickly things become ferocious. There has been ship warring, old grudges, cyberbullying, and sockpuppet accusations already and it's just three days down the line and still going strong.

2) Meme from sherrilina

I'll pick one of your fandoms. Post a pic or gif for all your ships.

Feel free to either suggest fandoms for me, or ask for fandoms.

sherrilina gave me The Borgias and Battlestar Galactica

No real spoilersCollapse )

3) One of my srs business friends at high school, who recently moved to the other side of the country (boooo) to start her post-graduate degree, came back for a visit recently.

And told me she'd started reading Pirates of the Caribbean fanfiction. Until 1am in the morning.
And that she was def. a Jack/Elizabeth shipper. We discussed this. In public. While having coffee.
And asked me for fandoms I thought she'd like to read fanfic in - I suggested Austen and she asked me for sites.
And I was on the verge of telling her about Dobby/Dumbledore fanfiction before realising (1) we were in public and (2) this is not the sort of thing said out loud.

Hahaha, what is this "fandom secrecy" thing people are always talking about.
