I like to do the Fandom Stocking thing so here's mine:

1.) Comment on everything you read/view and like during the holiday fests season, especially. It's a busy time right now and lots of people (me included) are frantically trying to finish shit up. A comment is golden, even if it's on an old piece of fanwork(s). Give a gift and pass it on.
2.) Did you know that $5 will feed 50 dogs at your local shelter? Leave a Donation somewhere for me. Look through your pantry and clean it out to give to the local food bank. Donate to your local animal shelter. Clean out your closets and give to your local homeless shelter. Buy a coat for someone and donate it. Buy blankets and donate them.
3.) Make me a cool icon or fanmix or upload your favorite holiday song and share with me why it's your favorite song. (Darcy the Dragon by Roger Whittaker and Emmanuel by Janis Ian are my favorites)
4.) I won't turn down Amazon.com gift cards. Or Bestbuy.com or Thinkgeek.com
5.) Hold the door for someone. Take an extra moment to say 'thank you' and 'you're welcome' and 'please'. This is one of my biggest pet peeves so you'll be giving me a gift by not being a dick.
6.) Write me a random fic. Or draw me art.
7.) Paid time for my LJ would be lovely.
8.) Give to your local library. They're all hurting for dollars. Even better than giving, check to see what their LGBT section looks like and donate some LGBT books that they can use.
9.) I wouldn't turn down any of the more recent The Editors albums. I need "Papillon", "You Don't Know Love", and "In This Light and On This Evening".
10.) I wouldn't mind some LGBT books either. Say, "Hero", "The Obsidian Man", "Masks Rise of Heroes", "David Inside Out", or "Boy Meets Boy".


Because I'm too lazy to do a new poll - here is my poll for Christmas/Holiday cards from last year. Feel free to sign up for one this year. I love sending them though they'll be cutting it close to get there for Christmas. I have about 60 boxes of cards so help me clean out my stash. I promise I won't show up at your house unless you invite me. EDITED TO ADD: If you don't plan on sending, that's cool! I love sending them so please don't worry about reciprocating! Also, if you're international, I don't much care, I'll send international.

I love getting cards, too, so if you have my address already, please send me one. I missed all the polls due to work. If you wanted to send me one, could you link me to your poll? Danke!

For the fourth year, I'm participating in the Southern Arizona AIDSWalk. If you wanted to donate, please go here. Any little bit helps. This year, your donations are going to support free HIV/AIDS Testing to everyone that comes to the event and wants to be tested in addition to expanding their version of Meals on Wheels for AIDS patients in Southern Arizona.

I'm on the team of one of my friends, Team Ti-To, which is named after her father and a family friend. Her family friend passed from AIDS while her father has been living with HIV since 1997. We're a small team and hoping a few more people from our circle of friends join us so all your support would be appreciated.

This is my first year of not walking with one of my dogs. Unfortunately, my dogs are simply too old to walk 5k. It's going to be weird not having to stop to pick up dog poop and almost get run over.

Anyway, shameless pimp to get you to donate here to help HIV/AIDS patients in Southern Arizona.

And for those in the area - if you were thinking of walking/attending/volunteering, please let me know! I'd love to connect with you!

Yo! Multi-fandom flist members - I'm looking for people that want to talk about being multi-fandom and what it means to them for [livejournal.com profile] slashcast.

All I'd need from you is:

1.) About an hour of your time
2.) You'd have to have access to Skype
3.) Be willing to go on record and have people listen to your voice.

Comments are screened to this post if you're interested in talking with myself and a few other people about being multi-fandom.

If you aren't willing to go on record, maybe you have someone that's multi-fandom that would be. Feel free to mention this to your multi-fandom flist members, as well.

It'd be more of a chat with multiple people. I'd be willing to send out the list of questions beforehand if that would make you more comfortable with the discussion.

Spent today working at the main job as my boss is in Bali and I'm doing her job plus mine for three weeks. A bit stressed, can't think, blahblahblah. I literally pulled my hair out in frustration/stress the other day. I watched hair sprinkle down onto my paperwork and realized it was time to take a break.

Today, I came home, and in a fit of "see? I can do shit well, sometimes!", I vanity-googled (as you do. Come on, you know you do it) and found that, a long time ago, I won Best Kiss at the Charlie Awards for a Charlie/Lavender fic I wrote. More to Life. It's a fic I wrote for Daily Deviant awhile back. I sort of like the idea of Lavender haring off to go be a Dragon Tamer. YMMV, of course.

But that got me to thinking about some of the stories I've written. There are two that I've written that sort of squick me at the same time that I sort of really love them. Both are Star Trek. One is Lead Me Not Into Temptation which features Jim Kirk at 13 having sex. Which, um, ew, but... hot. And the other is If It Please Your Father which features George Kirk/Leonard McCoy/Jim Kirk in an incestuous DP(one hole) fic. The idea of dad/son cocks rubbing together in my body is GROSS but in McCoy's? Please and thank you.

So what about you? What fic have you written that you're especially proud of? What one has you wondering WTF you were thinking? What one pushes your limits and/or comfort zone?

I was mocking discussing laundry habits with my sister. So, I wanted to see how abnormal or normal either of us are. Thus, time for a poll.

Since I have a lot of booklovers on my flist - this clothing store has some amazing book-themed shirts available in mens, womens and kids. They also have sweatshirts. I know a bunch that I would love to have.

Anyone else really annoyed at the new Samhain Publishing website? It takes way too many clicks to even get to the fucking books let alone find the books that are new releases rather than the ones that haven't even been published yet. I sort of think I'm done buying from them with the redesign. Way too much hassle to buy books there now.

I'm in love with two songs that are either not available and/or iTunes wants way too much money for them. Anyone got software that will allow you to rip music content off of Youtube? My software stopped working. Airborne Toxic Event All I Ever Wanted is a fucking AMAZING song. The other is Changing from Airborne Toxic Event. Both of them are just breathtaking. (Links go to best quality of audio rather than related video images) Or if someone has a copy of the Live from Disney album for Airborne Toxic Event? *puppy eyes* My usual places are leaving me hanging :(

Oh Great Flist - help me, you're my only hope.

The little round button on the very bottom of my iPhone randomly stopped working. Thus, to switch apps, I have to power down the phone and power it back up. Is there a way to fix this or am I fucked?

I have about a day's worth of patience for these sorts of shenanigans so if you have any ideas, please lay them on me as quickly as you can. I'd really rather not pay for a new phone, especially the iPhone 4G with the wonderful touch spot but I will if I have to buy a new phone.

I'm not interested in a Droid so telling me to get a Droid ain't gonna be helpful.

I'm in desperate need for a SPAG beta for my Sirius Big Bang fic. It's due on Monday and, unfortunately, stuffs happened and my grammar beta had to back out.

It's already had a pass through by a few eyes on plot and, in an earlier incarnation, SPAG. But I'd really like another set of eyes as a final check on SPAG.

Fic is 24k as it stands now. I can email it fairly quickly and if I could get it back on Sunday, that'd be awesome.

Any takers?
wook77: (Kirk is Han)
Canon questions. Do we know winona's last name? Do we know what track George followed? Pilot or navigator? So I know that Jim was command track but if he'd ended up first officer, what would he have been? Like Spock is the science officer so what would kirk have been?

Help me flist, you're my only hope.

Prompt me?

wook77: (star trek: Groupshot)

Prompt me with some 5 things (ie the five times kirk kissed mccoy, 5 times kirk stole a car or whatever similar) you'd like to see.

Fandoms; Star trek (kirk or bones centric plz but i'm willing to try sulu or chekov or Spock but no kirk/Spock). hp - deamus only.boondock saints. Departed. Green street hooligans.

Brain won't focus and I need the inspiration.

Normal limitations apply - may not get to all of them, probably won't turn out how you imagine them.

ETA: I'm a bad fangirl. Added fandom: xmen origins wolverine. Or gambit.
wook77: (star trek: mccoy is intense)

Know what I want? I want a fic where kirk and McCoy travel back in time and have all sorts of crazy kinky sex with kirk's dad. I want double penetration or bj/anal combo with McCoy in the center of a kirk sandwich.

Amyone want to make me a very happy girl?

I read a great kirk/kirk fic [ETA: A Good Man by [livejournal.com profile] brighteyed_jill is the fic in question. Cannot embed links on my phone, unfortunately so apologies for delay in linkage]/eta but I want McCoy in there too. *wants liekwhoa*

Another thing I want... Where's a good resource for info on the characters? Like a great wiki where I can trust the information. The wiki I found doesn't even show the new movie as out. :/

wook77: (blow up fandom)
As I continue to scribble away at copious amounts of Star Trek, I thought I'd do that meme that's floating around. Except there's no way I can pick just 10. So I broke it down into het and slash and posted them in no discernable order.

Choose your top 10> 15 pairings from any fandom:

Slash:

1.) Dean/Seamus (HP)
2.) Kirk/McCoy (ST:XIverse)
3.) Connor/Murphy MacManus (Boondock Saints)
4.) Bobby/Jack Mercer (Four Brothers)
5.) Bryce Dignam/Billy Costigan (The Departed)
6.) Pete Dunham/Carl Buckner (Hooligans/Green Street Hooligans)
7.) Tyr Anasazi/Seamus Harper (Andromeda)
8.) Harry/Draco (HP)
9.) Remus/Sirius (HP)
10.) Matt/Mohinder (Heroes)
11.) Chekov/Sulu (ST:XIverse)
12.) Logan/Remy (X-Men)
13.) Agent Zero/Bolt (X-Men)
14.) Luke/Wedge (Star Wars)
15.) Wedge/Tycho (Star Wars)

Het:

1.) Spock/Uhura (ST:XIverse)
2.) Colin/Parvati (HP)
3.) Seamus/Lavender (HP)
4.) Neville/Ginny (HP)
5.) Seamus Harper/Andromeda (Andromeda)
6.) George/Mason (Dead Like Me)
7.) Dean/Luna (HP)
8.) Logan/Jean Grey (X-Men)
9.) Iceman/Rogue (X-Men)
10.) Revan/Malak (Star Wars:KOTOR)
11.) Carth/Revan (Star Wars: KOTOR)
12.) Exile/Atton (Star Wars: KOTOR)
13.) Revan/Canderous (Star Wars: KOTOR)
14.) Wedge/Winter (Star Wars)
15.) Han/Leia (Star Wars)


Also - after reviewing the business plan for my main place of employment, I've come to the conclusion that it is as follows:

1.) Get offered retail space for store.
2.) Think about opening store.
3.) ???
4.) Profit!

They had no cost of goods sold or payroll expenses factored into the budget. None. So they're going to sell shit that, um, doesn't cost anything and is sold by elves in the middle of the night? IDEK.

I was going to post a rant about the disorganization at the Harkins in Tempe but, instead, I'm going to stick with the gleeful bits. Not only did Larry McMurtry stop by my office today (he bought a bunch of used books and is helping to price the ones that he didn't buy) but my old neighbor from when I lived in Camp Hill, PA, stopped by today. She drove in from Camp Hill! Alas, I twisted my ankle at work and couldn't make it to Fry's tonight. Someday, we will get our porch stairs fixed at my office. Someday *impotently shakes fist*

Another awesome thing that happened is that someone read an old H/D fic of mine that I'd forgotten that I'd written. Upon reading it when it showed up in my inbox, I thought it sort of stood up, still. I look back to my older works and I get mildly embarrassed by some of them. Others, I think stand up. Coffee is the story, written back in March of 2006. What do you guys think? Does it stand up?

Also - I noticed that I failed at responding to comments on that post (and so many others, omg. So sorry, people) so major apologies to everyone that commented on it. I appreciate them even if I'm now far too embarrassed to respond to them. (I'm looking at you, [livejournal.com profile] yodels, [livejournal.com profile] sugareey, [livejournal.com profile] enchanted_jae and [livejournal.com profile] wearethestars in specific.) Oh man, how much has happened in fandom since then?

3 years ago today, I posted a [livejournal.com profile] hd_365 fic (don't read it. It's not very good). I posted a Donald Duck Impression to cheer a flist member. (omg, lol. SRS LULZ) I'd forgotten about that one. (I unflocked it so you can giggle at my horrible impression) Also - I giggled in it. LOL. and wtf. I have a tag for it? What the everlasting fuckity fuck? And then I posted about going to Coachella.

Now I'm all nostalgic for the fandom of old.

ETA: omg. I did the donald duck impression TWICE. here too. OMG. Also - that transcript is so made of win, [livejournal.com profile] incapricious!

In other, less emo, news -

How would you describe the taste of pumpernickel? short and succinct like "woodsy" or "bitter" or something, plz.

Why yes, I hate pumpernickel bread and haven't had it in about 15 years. If I were to go on my response as a description, the following paragraph would look like -

Instead, he nodded, closed his eyes and picked up the sandwich, taking a full bite. The Russian dressing burst over his tongue as the sprouts crunched between his teeth. The turkey and the provolone melted in his mouth even as the dark bread's do not want taste blended it all together. The sweetness of the tomatoes balanced the bread out.

Terminus :D. I flew home this morning and a;dlfj;dlfjkad;flj oh my god.

Last night, I had a lot to drink. Like alot alot. It was fun and I hope I didn't annoy anyone with my rambling ways but the squee was definitely flowing. I woke up this morning and, well, I'm sort of dumb in the morning so I thought it'd be a good idea to make myself puke so I wouldn't fly with alcohol in the tumbly. This plan failed. Miserably. Instead, all I did was end up feeling queasy and gross. Is this what you guys get when you get hungover? If so... epic fail, body, epic fail. I think I shall consider this my first hangover ever. I ended up taking a taxi to the blue line station and then riding the El in. Once I got to nap on the El, I felt fine :D.

I friended as many people as I could remember and I can only hope that if I forgot you that you:

a.) forgive me for forgetting
b.) friend me anyway so that I can friend you.

ETA: Terminus Friending Meme (omg. what do I put here? I was the loud one that kept drinking all weekend? wait. don't answer that :P)

Also - [livejournal.com profile] autumnlecroix is made of suck and crotch. I've nicknamed her lecrotch and there is a reason for that :P.

[livejournal.com profile] anathema91 and I will be hosting the "Fandom - Claim Your Tits" photo gallery. We took lots of tits and ass shots. Oh yes we did.

I needed a button that said "I am the Deamus Get Together". But I did con beg solicite some Deamus artwork. Oh yeah, no shame for getting the Deamus. I figured everyone else was adding mucho H/D and Snarry art so I had to represent for the Deamus. We need a Deamus get together at Azkatraz.

I want to do a bunch of panels with people. One on RPGs, one on Best Mates and Homoerotic Subtext and adlfk;adf;lj Lots.

At Terminus, I went to a few panels that made me boggle.

The Fandom Wank panel was dry and boring and BLERGH. Too many quotations, not enough knowledge.

The Questionably Queer panel was very interesting. I disagreed with the one presenter that there was an opportunity in the books for Dumbledore to mention that he was gay to Harry but, all in all, very interesting.

I got a major ego check from [livejournal.com profile] accioscar when she looked at me during one of the drabbling rounds and asked "do you write?" Ouch.Burn.

Terminus photos will be trickling in though. I just need to get them uploaded. I was supposed to go in to work but my flight was delayed just EEEEEEENNNNOOOOUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHH that I can skip it. Sweet :D

Better wrap-up to come. For now? Nap.

ETA: Anyone know how I should treat a swollen leg that will not stop swelling? My left leg started swelling on the plane and I've had it elevated since I got home but it still aches and hurts and is swollen liekwhoa. Should I wrap it with an ace bandage or something?

Ok, Hollyoaks people. I've watched the JP/Craig and JP/Kieron storylines so far. With the caveat that there are episodes missing from the JPC storyline on youtube - I still think that Craig is an arse who doesn't know what he had and didn't really love JP. my thoughs on Hollyoaks, let me show you them and, err, spoilers? prolly? )

I've tried watching fanvids to get the best of the JPC thing so I can see why people are so in love with JPC. And, err, I've only really come across dreck.

So please to be recc'ing me your favourite JPC vids? Plz? Convert me as to why you think JPC is so awesome. I really want to like this storyline as I happen to think that JP is just about the cutest thing ever and if he were to leave the show, I might just have to cry.

Probably there will be spoiler discussions for future episodes in the comments. If there are a lot of comments as I've not a clue how many Hollyoaks fans are on the flist.
wook77: (slashfest)
Have been talking to someone about possibly moving [livejournal.com profile] slashfest to its own webdomain like [livejournal.com profile] yuletide does. Then - slashfest would become more like the [livejournal.com profile] yuletide comm - where things are discussed and hashed out and announced.

It'd be a bit different as the two fests are completely different. Plus - I have a few things I'd like to see improved upon from their website. And the whole make a request, claim thing is quite a bit different, too. But the basic premise is still there.

Pros: the site uploads the requests and claims for me, making it easier to organize. Also allows for automatic uploading by the participants with their fics. Can set up coding in the site to track dropouts and bannings for the various rounds. Can also set up coding to do the purging of the requests that are no longer valid.

Cons: people bitch about the lack of comments now and I'm not sure that commenting would go up at the website. I mean, if people can't hit the comment button at the bottom of a post, I doubt they'd be willing to click a link on a website.

What do you guys think of the feasibility of it? Take it off LJ and have it more automated and, imho, more polished? Honesty set to "on" plz. I can take the concrit, really :D. This is, obviously, just something in the beginning stages so the more input, the better. I want to get it hashed out as best I can here before I take it to the main comm as you guys speak "wookese" and stuffs.

Comment away and, as soon as I get back from Fry's, I'll be responding!
wook77: (slashfest)
I did warn for [livejournal.com profile] slashfest poking, right? During request/claim rounds, I pimp it hardcore so, um, yeah.

There are tons of great prompts out there. No, seriously, there are. And ok, I'm pimping this baby everywhere but hey, I rely on my flist the most for good fic/art so of course I'm going to come to you all directly.

I know so many of you are multi-fandom and multi-pairing but here are some HP samplings for you.

Harry/Ron (Post-Hogwarts) After Ron and Hermione split, Harry is there for Ron. Sex optional. (I know so many of you are into bestmates fic... come on, it's a great prompt!)

Sirius/Remus Marauder-era pranks, something involving the Map (Puppies! We've got puppies!!!)

Harry/Draco Draco is somehow turned into a chocolate-covered Malfoy. Hogwarts is on a chocolate kick, and Harry has to save him from being devoured by the entire school by whisking him away and somehow free Draco from his sweet prison with lots of hate!sex and licking. Crackfic at its finest! (We've got H/D!!!!!)

Harry/Remus Horcrux hunting. First time. (We've got Harry/Remus and it's such a brilliant prompt that lets the author go her own direction!)

Harry/Snape I can buy most other pairings, but not Snarry. I don't care how you do it, but I'm ready to be convinced that Snarry really is possible. (We've got "convince me to ship Snarry" and how brilliant is that to make a conversion? You know you want to. Heck, convince me too! I've seen some brilliant art and I'm willing to read some brilliant fic but don't tell [livejournal.com profile] ficlette)

Snape/Sirius Two years after Voldemort's demise Sirius gets out of the Veil, and has to ask Snape for help for...something. No kinks other than mild BDSM - no non-con, dub-con. (Who can resist the power of Snack? No one! Not even me, darnit!!!)

and the last one I'll pimp for now has me looking right at someone I know is writing it anyway... why not fulfill someone's request at the same time?

Harry/Neville/Seamus Room mates that wank together, well, wank together. (You know you want to. You KNOW it. Come on... be brave *winks*. Carpe Request!)

Basically, we started the round with almost 350 prompts. We've had about 40 claims so far and I would love to see more and more and more! You have until March 12th to finish it up and that's a fairly decent amount of time, right? Right! Here's the link to the Harry Potter Requests but there are well over 50 fandoms represented so there has to be something for everyone! Go on and take a look...you know you want to.
