wook77: (Remy)
Was tagged for the 8 Days of Happiness Meme and as I've only really been pissing and moaning lately, I thought I'd do it.

1. Post about something that made you happy today.
2. Repeat for eight days.
3. Tag eight people to do the same: (you don't have to)

Not going to tag.

Things that make me happy -

1.) There's this little known movie that's coming out. I don't think I've mentioned it here before but it's about these people with special powers and they can do some kick ass stuff. It's called X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Yeah, I'm sure I haven't mentioned it before but the US premiere is in Tempe AZ and I'm going. a;dslfkjasd;flkas;kdflj HUGH JACKMAN! LIEV SCHREIBER! RYAN REYNOLDS! TAYLOR KITSCH! DOM MONAGHAN (maybe)! OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG Best thing ever!

ok so that one is cheating. How about -

2.) Heroes. The consumption continues. omnomnomnom BTW - I read this amazing story with Mohinder's mum visiting Matt/Mohinder. Now I can't find it! Help?

3.) I'm getting my car's body damage fixed tomorrow. I also get to drive a shiny rental car for awhile. I hope through until Tuesday so I can take that up to Phoenix for the US FREAKING PREMIERE OF X-MEN ORIGINS *spazzes again*

4.) Writing. I've started an original m/m story and am working through a few other epics including a dean/seamus and harry/draco fic, a Sirius Big Bang fic, the prequel to Memories as a Teacup, an X-Men Wolverine/Gambit fic, and a Matt/Mohinder in Heroes.

5.) The budget at work is almost done which means I can go back to being lazy. Err, working.
wook77: (Gambit with a Cocky Grin)
Woe, Penguins. You make me very very sad.

Heroes Season 2 is now done and returned to Blockbuster (ok, so they're sitting on my DVD player waiting for me to get off my lazy ass and return them). I dl'd Season 3 (thank you, [livejournal.com profile] accioscar!!!!!) and have watched the first episode. [livejournal.com profile] elanorofcastile hooked me up with some awesome cables and after I figured out how to actually use my TV as a monitor, it worked beautifully. my reactions so far )

Omg guys. I'm literally flailing and my heart is POUNDING!!!! X-men world premiere is in Tempe on Monday!!!!!! Omgomgomgomgomgomgomg. I'm totes going omg. My boss is mocking me but who the fuck cares?! Godomgomgomgomg something awesome and fandomy a d AWESOME is happening in arizona. *dies and iz ded*
wook77: (gambit with a card)
I had had every intention of being a good fangirl and holding off and waiting for the X-Men movie. BUT, then it got leaked, someone on my flist squeed and I caved. I admit it. I caved so fast that I reached the center of the earth before I took another breath, that's how far and deep and fast my cave went. (ok, come on, work with me here, my brain is mush)

OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. I called [livejournal.com profile] elanorofcastile and the entire message was squee and giggles and OH MY GOD. She had to call me back just to figure out what the fuck I was talking about.

The only critical thing I could say is "needs moar Gambit" cause it totes should be X-Men Origins: Gambit :P.

GAH. I cannot wait to see the finished copy in the theatre. Now it's even harder to wait. GAH GAH GAH GAH GAH GAH OMG

Having said that, I think I've told this story before but I can't find the post so... here's how I came to slash fandom. See, I started out in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. There I abandoned my first WIP. As I was cruising ff.net in a desperate search for something other than work to do and I thought to myself "well, self, you like Gambit, look for fanfiction". I found an awesome story and it was labelled slash and I had no idea what that meant. Little did I know that i would be sucked into X-Men fandom and, from there, decide to look for Harry Potter and, baddabing baddaboom, here I am.

Wolverine/Gambit is, by far, my favorite pairing in X-Men. I love Bobby/John. I've read Beast/Bobby and Wolverine/Nightcrawler but, for me, I always come back to Wolverine/Gambit. They have such similar personalities and, yet, they're very different. Their backstories (all billion and one of them), their interactions, their attitudes, their powers, everything pulls me in and keeps me going back.

It's one of the few pairings that I'll give a bit of fanon a pass. For comicsverse slash, here is a fairly complete archive.

In canon, Gambit has multiple mutations. He has physical mutations - his eyes are red thus his nickname, Le Diable Blanc. He has, depending on interpretation, two "talents" - kinetic energy and "charm". The charm, in a lot of fanfiction, turns into empathy. Regardless of the empathy factor, he has three known mutations.

In fanon worlds, Remy(gambit) is abused on the streets, normally a street hustler and prostitute. There's plenty of stories where he isn't but that's the fanon characterization. Some I don't mind, some I like, most I hate.

moar thoughts on Gambit in Fandom...a mini-rant )

For those that are just getting started in X-Men fandom due to the Wolverine movie, there's a a brilliant Remy/Gambit fansite that will tell you almost everything you need to know about Le Diable Blanc in the comics.

Now that I've introduced Gambit, maybe I could tempt a few of you into writing and drawing Wolverine/Gambit. Plz?

[livejournal.com profile] hp_springsmut has finished posting. I did two works, my original assignment and a pinch hit. As reveals are a few days away, what ones do you think I did? Any reasons?

[livejournal.com profile] hd_worldcup starts posting tomorrow. There are some amazing works this year. The artwork, in particular, is stunning. There isn't a piece of artwork that I didn't fall in love with.

Work today sucked. We terminated 6 people due to the economy and the continued lack of profit and performance at one of our locations. Of course all the terminations were happening right next to my office and it made me all weird. Also - I had to sit in on one of them.

My boss and I had a talk today about last Thursday (she just got back from vacation). I think we're in a good spot. I'm finally feeling more cleansed about this whole thing. She seemed to get where I'm coming from and where I'm frustrated at. So we'll see if things improve.

I've been reading way too many spoilers for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. If only I could tempt more of you into the X-Men fandom. There's so much shiny (images linked are NSFW) there. I'm still so extremely excited over this movie. Also - I heard Taylor Kitsch try out Gambit's accent and it sort of made me lol. Hopefully it's better than it sounded on that little clip. It sort of sounds British instead of Creole. You can hear it on the official website (not dial-up friendly in the least). IDK. Also, I bought a Gambit action figure and put it up at my desk. Don't judge.

I really really really want a new mood theme :(. Anyone feeling graphically inspired and would be willing to do a custom one up for me?
wook77: (Gambit/Wolverine hot hot hot line)
ANOTHER WOLVERINE TRAILER! and omg it has so much gambit and it's going to be in front of Watchmen so I'll get to see it on the big screen. Gambit's eyes ARE red and I doubted and omg. omg omgomgomgomgomgomgomgomg I swear to god that I'm hyperventilating and flailing and not breathing as i replay the trailer again and again and again.

He climbs up a motherfucking building, people. His eyes are RED. He tosses cards and he kicks some serious ass with his bo. oh jesus. I think if I could hear him talking right now, I would orgasm.

Is it May 1 yet? I so want to write fic for this fandom but, dude, it'd be retconned immediately. oh god. Gambit.

Can someone please, for the love of me, rip this and send it to me? My software isn't cooperating.

I think I need a new mood theme. And a new layout. Gambit. OMG.

edited to put in some spoilers for the trailer )

Added quite a few spaces/lines so that if you didn't want to see the spoilers when commenting, you don't have to. Hopefully.
wook77: (shelter-see the light)
Got right back into the swing of working assloads of hours as soon as [livejournal.com profile] anathema91 left me :(.

Tonight, though, I scored a few really awesome things at Fry's. See, last weekend's "sidewalk sale" was on books. And dude. I got book 2 of the Bartameaus (omg, cannot spell that) Trilogy, The Opal Deception (Artemis Fowl) and about 10 romance novels with assorted other books that are gifts and, thus, cannot be disclosed at this time... all for 30 bucks. 15 books for 30 bucks. That rules.

Speaking of stuff that rules -

Thanks to whomever voted for me. This made me absolutely ecstatic.

Speaking of stuff that doesn't rule - me. I'm getting my ass handed to me in Lego Star Wars 2. Dude. It's legos. Why am I losing so hardcore?! Stupid princess needing stupid rescuing.

Going back to things that rule. this article about the reshoots for Wolverine rules if just for that awesome flailworthy photo attached. You and I both know that Gambit AND Sabretooth are totes checking out Wolverine's ass. Unfortunately for Sabretooth, he's already lost out to Gambit. It's just too bad for him and awesome for us. "I know who you are, Gambit." *flails*

If someone were to icon that, I think I would explode in a gleeful explosion.

Going to see Underworld 3 tomorrow. My sister and I are going to hang out. We haven't done that in months with just the two of us so it should be nice. Then after that - I get to go into the main job to do some end of year tax stuffs. And to clean up some of the mess left after the people in charge at the main job terminated both of the main managers. Nice planning on their part, too, because they didn't think to make arrangements on how to cover duties until after they terminated the two people. I got a phone call asking me to come up with a plan. WTF, people, WTF?!

And I slip right back into not ruling stuffs but to head back into ruling stuffs one last time - There was a George/Lee fic that ruled. It was written awhile back that featured George going off to, err, southeast Asia or somewhere around there and Charlie tracking him down. Do you guys know what this story is? I've been thinking on it all day and I cannot remember the title or the author and I really want to re-read it. Help?

wook77: (Hello!Wolvie)
Broke a tooth on Saturday night... how? That's a great question. I have no idea. I was eating some cheese, crackers and grapes. Next thing I know, I slice my tongue on the sharp edge of a broken tooth. According to my dental tech sister, I'm going to need a crown. Blech. Not a happy camper.

This morning, I woke up and my thumb drive (the drive I keep ALL my WIPs) was in four pieces. Anyone know if there's a way to get information off of the chip inside the thumbdrive as the USB port thingie is no longer attached?

Also - went to see X3 -

spoilerific review )

So, I totally plan on claiming an X-Men request at [livejournal.com profile] slashfest. I'm super excited for it. We have some brilliant requests including some h/d, deamus, remus/sirius, death eaters and more.

If you haven't put in your requests, I urge you to do so as requesting will be closed down either late tonight or tomorrow morning. Any fandom/ Any slash pairing. You get three requests so keep that in mind. We also haven't received all that many Star Wars requests so, Star Wars fans on my flist - consider yourself *poked*.

Requesting things does not mean that you have to fulfill someone else's requests. So, request away!

And now - even though I told my family that I would be on the internet all weekend due to [livejournal.com profile] slashfest, I now have to go downstairs and totter about on a ladder to re-paint the kitchen because my mother doesn't like the color that I've hated since we bought it. I told her that she'd hate it but no, I'm an idiot that doesn't know what she's talking about. So, now I get to re-paint what we just painted a bit ago (and keep in mind that we have 20 foot walls in the kitchen).
