For some reason I thought nightmares were something that stopped when you grew up. Like wetting the bed.

So that's an awesome way to start the day.

I have a goal this year, which is to post one fic a month. Minimum of 500 words.

Let's see if I mange it, eh? :)

...so I thought I'd ask my flist/circle.

What are your favorite perfumes? In particular, what are your favorite non-floral perfumes for winter?

Inquiring minds, and all that.

Oh, yes, also I'm still alive. Hating school and wanting to be graduated/terrified of being graduated, but alive.

Guys, can we talk about how very very wrong this:



And yet, on the other hand, I have to go DEAR GOD WHAT IS WRONG WITH RDJ'S WARDROBE. D:

First of all, it fits completely wrong and makes him look like he gained twenty pounds. (Remember how in the first movie he looks like this? And this? IF THEY TAKE THAT AWAY I WILL BE HEARTBROKEN.)

Secondly, what is wrong with his hair.

[personal profile] bookshop had a general call for quick, ridiculously soppy Arthur/Eames fic to combat the massive amounts of angst this fandom likes to dream up. These are what I offered.

Arthur is secretly a big sap.Collapse )

Arthur's morning routine.Collapse )

Um. This fic is the longest thing I've written to date, and is also the first thing I've finished in this fandom to date. It's also the most complicated fic I've ever written in terms of plot, so I'm pretty sure it's kind of all over the place in terms of emotional arc and plot lines. I ran out of patience at the end though, so here it is. :P

The Probability of Failure (AO3)
~6,600 words. Rated R for sex. College AU!
Arthur meets Eames at a truly regrettable frat party, and things go downhill from there.

Read more.Collapse )

Everyone in Inception fandom needs to run, not walk, and read [personal profile] rageprufrock's new fic Presque Vu right now.

This fic is long - 70,000 words.

This fic follows movie canon, and will break your heart.

I just read this fic and it took me three hours of staring at my computer in rapturous awe, unable to get out of bed, unable to get dressed, unable to get food, unable to even refresh my other tabs because I was completely entranced.

It will break your heart and put it back together again. Oh Arthur.

My love for this past season can't be textually rendered. It was everything I was hoping for and never thought I'd actually get. You guys, seriously. Seriously.

Warnings! Contains possible spoilers for the finale.

So guys, I'm thinking about cross posting my fic here from my Dreamwidth journal and making this a fanworks journal. If anyone has any strong opinions on the matter, feel free to voice them here.

IN UNDER THE WIRE. SORT OF. Written for Porn Battle with the prompt "opium."

Edit (7/28/2010): Ending revamped. It didn't feel right.

Watson returns home. Holmes awaits.
~900 words. NSFW. Warnings for recreational drug use.

When Watson arrived back at home one afternoon, he was surprised to find Holmes stretched out on the floor of their sitting room...Collapse )

Over the weekend, ontd_ai (of which I am a member) and ontd_startrek (of which I am not a member but considering becoming) got into a friendly competition to see who could raise the most money in a 48 hour period for Haiti relief. The pages were set up through UNICEF, and each comm had its own page to keep track of the funds, and the timer was set from the opening of the page (meaning that since _ST had their page set up significantly before we did their 48 hour period ran out first).

I have never been happier to be part of a competition. The entire thing was full of trash talking but remained totally friendly (I even made some new friends from _ST), there were epic macro/.gif battles between members of the two comms, and in the end? We raised a combined total of $31,000. In two days. And we're not done raising money, even though the competition is over. (For the recond, _AI won. :P)

I don't say this to toot my own horn and tell you all how awesome I am - I could only personally donate a small amount. I just say this because sometimes I forget in all the drama why I'm still on the internet. But you know what? This is why.

When we want to be? Fandom is awesome.

Also, if anyone would like to assist our efforts, the _AI Unicef page can be found here, and the _ST UNICEF page can be found here.
Current Mood: Fuck yeah. :D

So, I'm turning 21 in two weeks (exactly!), and since I got an earring for my 18th birthday and a nose piercing when I graduated HS I'm thinking I should keep up the tradition and get myself a piercing.

So what do you guys think? Belly button? Another earring? Eyebrow? IDK.

The opening sentence to one of my paper resources:

"This article analyses an anti-essentialist SF novel, focusing on the extent to which anti-foundationalism enables a more accurate as well as a more productive representation of postmodernity."

And, I. Just. WHAT.

What does that even meeeean.

Adam Lambert's first music video (not counting Time For Miracles because...well because) has been released! You can view "For Your Entertainment" either on adamofficial.com or here on youtube, and I highly suggest you do. I love this music video, for many reasons, starting and ending with ALL OF IT. ALL THE TIME. It's sexy and looks really well produced and it's really, really hot.

But what I adore about this video? Is how it perfectly showcases how Adam refuses to be just one thing. He'll give the camera a totally smoldering look and then quirk his mouth just a little bit like he's going "I AM A FIERCE DOM. hee!" and suddenly manage to be both totally hot and totally adorable at the same time.

Or he'll strut around in a very masculine suit and tie and then do a move like this:

which I have seen countless times, but I have never seen a man do in a music video ever because it is such a coded-feminine dance move.

And his refusal to be just one thing (masculine or feminine, sexy or cute) is amazing.

Passed out on the couch for about three hours last night before [info - personal] shirozora managed to get me awake enough to stumble to my own bed (after a couple unsuccessful attempts that I don't remember at all but I believe her that they happened). I somehow managed to get into my sleeping wear (even though it was five in the morning and I'd just been dragged out of a deep sleep) and had thankfully taken my contacts out hours before, but still. That always messes with me a bit.

Today I went to a book signing for Lynn Flewelling (otterdance)! Who did not actually have a new book out because her publishing date got pushed back (to MAY *grumble grumble*) but she'd agreed to it before the push back and was there with her writer friend Laura Anne Gilman who did have a new book out and they were both very nice (though I hadn't read anything by LAG and therefore didn't have much to say to her) and I was my usual obnoxious fangirl self by getting about twenty books signed and then not leaving and just hanging around talking after the people have gotten their books signed and the authors are signing things for stock. But she said it was nice meeting me and I'll totally go back when her book does finally come out and she goes on another tour for it. :Db

Also one of the employees of the local, independent, genre bookstore (SciFi, Fantasy, Mystery, Horror) was really cute and fun to talk to. This is my favorite store ever. :D

...I think it says something about me that I've been to more book signings than concerts. Also I write about them more as I went to see Mute Math last weekend and haven't even said anything about it (though yes it was TOTALLY AWESOME). (There. Now I've said something.) *cough*
