TIME magazine has a fantastic article about fanfiction.

Right? I love it.
speccygeekgrrl42: (*happy dance!*)
Yuletide signups are now open!!!

Get your prompts in early! I offered what feels like a lot fewer fandoms than last time I signed up, but it's a pretty strange assortment, so whatever I get to write will be interesting! And my prompts this year were a lot simpler than last year. I learned something from those 'how to be a good requester' posts people have been making. xD
speccygeekgrrl42: (*happy dance!*)
HEY GUYS.

YULETIDE NOMINATIONS ARE OPEN!

Go! Nominate! Get planning for what you're going to request! I already have two solid ideas of things I'd like.

*does the Yuletide dance* Hooray, rare fandom love extravaganza!
speccygeekgrrl42: (all work and no play : Mohinder)
Because I'm a sheep and, really, any occasion to beg for rare pairings is one I will take:

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Kirk and Spock

Sheppard and McKay

Sylar and Mohinder and Peter and Noah and Elle

Jack and Ianto

Dana Scully and Fox Mulder.

Well, I mean, if I have to pick. >.> It's hard to carry off six full seasons and change of unresolved sexual tension AND solve all that conspiracy bullshit, you know. They didn't even kiss until season 7! (No, Triangle doesn't count, that was an alternate universe. Although totally hot.)

So yes. Though I have some enduring OTPs, for this question Mulder and Scully take the win.
speccygeekgrrl42: (fuckin' hate you/lol love you:Kirk/Spock)
Dear fandom:

McCoy does use other insults besides "green-blooded hobgoblin" and "elf". Seriously, "I'm a doctor, not a ___" is a catchphrase; not being more creative with epithets is just lazy. (And, yeah, keep that down to once per fic unless there's a really good [read: hilarious] reason for more.)

Also, what I said about t'hy'la last week? Still applies. It's not a goddamn pet name, all right?

Also also, n00bs please go watch some TOS. Chekov is not all that sweet and innocent. Seriously, I don't even know seventeen year olds NOW who are as naive as he's being characterized sometimes. He's sneaky and brilliant, okay? And although I know I've been guilty of this, pleeeeeeease stop writing out his and Scotty's accents phonetically. Please.

Sincerely,
ohmygodIhavespentwaytoomuchtimereadingficlately

PS, I'm sorry for bitching so much, here, have a link to a story that made me snort cranberry juice with lols: High Times on the USS Enterprise.
"This," said Sulu, holding up a plastic baggie with a flourish, "is Warp Core weed, lovingly grown in the 'ponics system by yours truly."

"While I am aware of your ability as an herbologist, Mr. Sulu, I am unaware as to how cannabis will better help me understand humans."

"Cannabis won't help you to understand humans, Spock. But smoking it will. It will relax you and help you get in better touch with your senses and emotions," Jim paused for a moment, "I think."





*teehee*

In the past... uh, five hours... I have gone from 130 tabs to 65. I know, 65 is still ridiculous, but at least I can close and reopen Firefox if I need to... it took a half an hour for all the pages to load the last time I had to restart. :o My name is Dani, and I am addicted to tabs. I need help to break the habit... xD but right now, I just need sleep.
speccygeekgrrl42: (cadet outranks commander: Spock/Uhura)
I'm afraid I am becoming a crotchety old fangirl.

When the temptation to yell "Get the fuck off my lawn fandom" gets too strong, I just put my head down and count to thirty and remind myself that once upon a time, I was the one writing really bad fic and uploading my crappy art.

back in my day we didn't HAVE fandom wikis, we did our goddamn canon research by REWATCHING THE EPISODES ON VHS WITH A NOTEBOOK AT HAND, and if you actually had someone say the word t'hy'la out loud it damn well better have been a life or death situation, you think that's an endearment like 'sweetheart'? fuck no, that shit is SUPER MEANINGFUL! AND LEONARD MCCOY'S EYES ARE FUCKING BLUE, DAMMIT, HE'S A DOCTOR NOT A ROHIRRIM

oooh, Jeopardy is on... what's that? time for applesauce? you don't say!


and now, to make my dorkishness fully apparent: Rohirrim is a collective noun, what's the word for one person who lives in Rohan? fucking LotR and its zillion languages, fucking elves, what.
speccygeekgrrl42: (colors! so many pretty colors : Pintsize)
I just watched WALL-E with my family.

That was ridiculously cute. And I definitely almost cried over robots.

Just... n'awwwwwwwwww. So much.



OMG HEROES AWARDS.

I got runner-up on Best Claire Characterization, Best Matt/Mohinder (G-PG-13), and Best Mohinder/Sylar (R-NC-17)

I tied for Best Claire/Elle (R-NC-17), which was seriously not what I thought I would pick up, and got Best Adam/Hiro (G-PG-13).

banners? plz! )

All in all... pretty good for my first award competition. \o/

Congrats to everyone who won and placed! It was fierce out there.

Next time, I'm gunning for Best Sylar/Luke... *game face* (lol yeah right.)


Julia keeps making me play Trauma Center with her. I want to write, damn it, I'm in the middle of two things that I really want to finish. (also, I have embarrassingly bad fanart to re-scan and color in Photoshop.)
speccygeekgrrl42: (all work and no play : Mohinder)
Today is pretty awesome:

-registered for class insanely easily
-PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
-cookies!
-spending the rest of the day reading to check off my list for [livejournal.com profile] heroes_slash awards. (oh my god, it is going to be so hard to pick between two of these stories that are in almost every category together.)
-found out that my second-cousin Jen is coming to visit next week :D

Oh man. I am nose-deep in fanfic right now. It's been surprisingly simple to cross off a lot of these stories, though. I can't help it, I am a snob against consistently bad grammar. :/

I might not finish the Nymphmomania series until this weekend. My brain is kind of absent when it comes to who I'm writing for Saturday. I could just skip to Sunday, but that's cheating...

caaaake.

Amount of writing done today: minimal.

Amount of... well, anything much done today: also minimal.

Amount of hilarious fun in the [livejournal.com profile] broomcloseted chat room: MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE! xD

Seriously, I am so glad I kind of tripped into being part of the Heroes fandom. In [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets people always complain about how batshit their fandoms are, and I have seen nothing but love with the people I've met since October. Everyone is so nice and there is so much cracky fun and, just, you guys are all awesome. ♥


So, I want to write 250 more words before I go to bed, but I have hit a wall on Erased (which is what I am tentatively calling the sequel to Marked) and I am stalling out on everything else as soon as I think of it. *sigh* So I'm going to call a halt to it, do a meme over at [livejournal.com profile] drive_thru_rx, and hit the sack.
speccygeekgrrl42: (Default)
Hey, Heroes buddies. I re-pimped the kink meme in the communities I'm in, but... that doesn't include some pairings, or like ANY of the het comms. So if you wouldn't mind passing on the information, could you comment here and I can give you the post I've been using for pimp purposes? (Or, of course, you could make your own!)

Thank you in advance ♥
speccygeekgrrl42: (between you and your god : Mohinder)
but whoever made [livejournal.com profile] fandomkink obviously didn't care about promoting it, and I don't want to overspam the Heroes comms with "come play another kink meme! :D", but for god's sake.

There are three pages of requests and five finished prompts. And of those five, I wrote three of them.

WILL SOMEBODY MAN UP AND WRITE SOME MOTHERFUCKING PORN ALREADY KTHX I JUST CAN'T DO IT ALONE


and also I would still like my requests to be filled, jeez

Come on, Heroes buddies, help a girl out and pimp this a bit?
speccygeekgrrl42: (born to the age of panic.)
The terrible secret of LiveJournal.

I just... never really thought about it like that? And it's kind of a sobering thought.

Yeah. Anyone fannish: read it.
speccygeekgrrl42: (me.)
Plz note that I almost died in the shower while thinking this through (I slipped on the tub and almost broke my neck x.x), so hear me out.

I know a lot of you guys are sick of Fall Out Boy. I've been told so. I've had people defriend me because of it.

It's my fandom. Okay? I don't bitch when anyone else talks about their fandoms. I don't say "God, I'm so sick of hearing about the Office" or "if someone posts something about CNN again I'm going to cut a bitch" or "what's the big deal about Battlestar Galactica?" (to name a few, not singling people out, just thinking about the big fandoms on my flist I'm not part of.) I'm not making you listen to them, I'm not saying they're the best music that's ever been made.

I'm saying I like writing goofy fanfic about them, and wibbling over them, and obsessively looking up pictures of them. I make layouts and icons because that's what people do with their fandoms. And I know there's not a single fan on my flist who can say otherwise.

So: if you want to hate, that's your choice. And if you dislike my fandom enough to get rid of me, well, I'll be sad to see you go.

Just take a look in the mirror, mkay? Fandom's about having fun, or it should be. And this fandom makes me happy in ways that other fandoms have consistently failed to do. I wish everyone had something this fun and worry-free to indulge in, without the constant drama that plagues other fandoms.

But, in the words of the immortal H.O.V.A.: "I'm like, fuck critics, you can kiss my whole asshole, if you don't like my lyrics you can press fast forward." Or, you know, something like that? Anyway, it's either talking about Fall Out Boy or Justin Timberlake. If anyone wants me to go on to the Prince of Pop, y'all just let me know.

om.

speccygeekgrrl42: (bitch please)
So I was just treated to an exercise in paradox.

If you're not part of a fandom, and everyone keeps talking about it, the urge most people get is to tell everyone to shut up.

However, if you're the kind of person who does that, you're the kind of person people tend to get off their flists. Also, whiny ass.

So the only civilized route to take, when you don't fan along, is to say nothing. Don't mock people for their fanthing-of-the-moment, don't make whingy 'I feel so left out ;_;' posts. Grab on and get involved or suck it up and shut up. But people who take the civilized route are, in effect, doing nothing, so the whiny abstainers get all the attention and no one really tells them to stfu.

So here I am, telling people to just stfu. I'm glad you fans have something to be excited about, I hope you all have fun for it, and whiny people can shut themselves up on a cock. :D

--brought to you by the "I can shut up, why can't everyone else in the 'verse?" foundation, and the letter X--
speccygeekgrrl42: (^_^)
How bad do I want to stay asleep? Pretty freaking bad. My brain is getting creative.

I dreamed that Kristin and I had a whole row of alarm clocks, and they went off, and I started turning them all off but one of them-- and I couldn't tell which one-- just wouldn't stop. So I said fuck it and went back to sleep. In my dream. Until I listened to each one by the speakers, and when I found the right one in my dream I woke up and got out of bed to shut mine off.

But I had slept on my right hand, and I COULDN'T SHUT IT OFF.

AAAAAAAAAAH.

But I'm okay now. If by okay I mean typing in fragments and really tired, which I clearly do.

Did I forget to fangirl last night? Oh, man. House was wonderful, the House/Wilson interaction was lovely, the motorcycle... omfg, Hugh Laurie on a motorcycle, pardon me while I proceed to fangasm all over the place. Unf. And Supernatural had a huge plot hole that I totally missed because I was high, and I thought aside from it the episode was excellent. And Sam should have kissed the bug boy. Who was, by the way, the closest thing the week had to a damsel in distress, so yay for getting past the 'only pretty girls need to be saved'. And, aaaah, can't wait for next week. *flails weakly*

Kay, getting good for work now. How much of my clothing can I put on under the warm comfiness of blankets? Only the Shadow knows!

eta: BONUS ROUND: I found money in my pants while I was getting dressed! Only $2, but $2 I didn't have five minutes ago! Sweeeeet.
speccygeekgrrl42: (tired)
Don't stop short of getting everything you want. If you hold out just a little longer, everything will fall into place.

Today was miserable in parts-- I ended up coming home and passing out from 2 to nearly 7:30, waking up just long enough to do my brother a favor (dear lord, dealing drugs as a favor and this seems almost normal. my life = messed up) and popping a lot of acetominophen and microwaving a lot of heating pads between then.

Tomorrow will be much better in the parts that sucked, and if the parts that didn't suck get even better, then tomorrow will be a winning day! Because awesome RP is the win. ♥

Brief TVgasm: Criminal Minds today, oh my god. I have found my pet pairing-- Hotch/Reid. Cause, omg, the end of the episode. *spaz* (And I know Gideon/Reid is the usual one, but Mandy Patankin just doesn't lend himself to the slashination in my head.) Finally, a genius character in a show I can actually watch. (Because somehow, I can never get into Numb3rs.)

things I need (more) icons of: Criminal Minds, Supernatural, House.

things I need now: two more pills, a glass of water, to brush my teeth, to pass out.

ARGH

From [livejournal.com profile] garbarella: When you see this on your flist, quote Firefly.

Mal: This job I would pull for free.
Zoë: Can I have your share?
Mal: No.
Zoë: If you die, can I have your share?
Mal: Yes.


Jayne: You know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I go get and beat you with until you understand who's in ruttin' command here. Now we're finishing this deal, and then maybe maybe we'll come back for those morons who got themselves caught.
[Starts breathing heavily]
Jayne: You can't change that by getting all...... bendy.
Wash: All what?
Jayne: You've got the light... from the console... keep you, lift you up. They shine like... [tries to catch the light in his hands] ... little angels...
[Jayne collapses with a thud. The crew just stares]
Wash: Did he just go crazy and fall asleep?
Simon: I told him to sit down.

Eeeeeeeheee, Firefly marathon SciFi SO GOOD. So much better on my TV than on my computer. Hey, [livejournal.com profile] antistructure, are you seeing Serenity on Friday? We should go see it. Yeah.

Ohhhh, Wash. And Zoe. And Mal, and Simon, and Inara, and Kaylee, and Sheperd, and man River creeps me out but HER TOO. ALL OF THEM. SO GOOD.
