Day 7

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.


Right. Um. Okay.

So, I've always wanted podfic to be made from my fics. I've never deemed any of them good enough for that, and I don't really know many podficcers (I've never been that cool I guess). But I've always dreamt of having a podfic done of one of my fics, because, Idk, it's just awesome, isn't it?

It's like inspiring people enough that they make art in relation to fic I've written. Any and all art, it takes my breath away and makes me feel so humbled. Arghl, this makes me sound so conceited, fjdegvefnjkv. Just, art, art is lovely and we don't tell artists that enough.

Other than that, mixes. I love music and I love when music is fitted to my favourite characters/fics/anything, so, yes. Mixes are good. Mixes are great!

Now done shamelessly asking for things ^_^.

Also, head over to the Jeremy Renner Birthday Bash, because it is his birthday today and so there is pictures and recs and ficlets and coooooooome!

So, I'm feeling like pretty muuuuuchhhh shit. You know how, a few days ago I said I was in agony, yes? It's because I am guessing I pulled a muscle in my neck/shoulder area, and I could hardly move my head. It was turning into a dull, sort of controlled ache, until last night, at some point during the night I moved, and Idk, I felt something pop/snap and now it hurts approximately a thousand times more than it did. I didn't get any sleep after that because it was throbbing, and I could barely move to find some sort of comfortable position, because holding my head upright pulls on these muscles and it hurts like a m*therf*cker.
So now I have a hot water bottle against my neck and it's not going far to soothe, but it's better than nothing and it keeps my head upright without me having to use any muscles. I probably need a neck brace, at this point.

In other shit news, I went to meet with my boss yesterday, to talk about our ~work situation, and, as sort of feared, basically it was either get a new office or let people go right away. So he chose to keep us on for a while longer, finish what we've started, but he's giving us the freedom to just go for interviews during our work hours if we have the chance, and he's offering us interview practice, and stuff like that. I think there's only 3 of us being sort of let go, but I'm not exactly sure, because he told me he wanted to do something else, too. At least we're not going into administration or something like that, so he's still paying us and it's not DEEP SHIT. It just sucks. I told him I've got interviews lined up, because it smelled like rubber for us, and he just wished me luck. Fuck.

And speaking of interviews, I had one, after that meeting, yesterday. And it was...Idk. It was quite informal, and all the pretty things I wanted to say about the company didn't come into the discussion, and I don't know if I answered some of their questions the way they wanted me to, but. I try. I'm not really good at all this stuff. However, I have three more interviews on Monday, so there's hope!

ANYWAY. That is the bad, let's get to the good, yes? Yes. [livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs and I ended up signing for the for which we're writing our Love, Actually redux. And it's already 5K (the min word count for the big bang is 15K) and we're still completely at the beginning. And I already love it. Muehehehe.

Aaaand I went to see JEREMY RENNER AND HIS ARSE in the cinema with my friend Lisa the other night and it was a brilliant silly timy FILLED WITH JEREMY RENNER'S ARSE. Oh, that arse in those tailored trousers, my oh my.
Speaking of Jeremy Renner, [livejournal.com profile] kellifer_fic posted this picture on Neve's journal the other day and it inspired all sorts of dolphin noises, so, sharing for those who didn't see (and those who want to see it again):

My insides are still quivering.

Okay, I wanted to talk about photography as part of the snowflake challenge, as it's sort of my non-fannish ~thing, although it was started by fandom. Or not really, it's just all mixed up together. Basically, my non-fannish thing? Live music photography, because I love it so much. I love taking a million pictures and going through them, editing them, remembering exactly when was this and when was that. I had the chance to be in the photo pit for the very first concert of a McFly arena tour last year, and I swear to God the experience was such a thrill. If I had the money to get better equipment than what I have, you have no idea, I would have so much shit. I have so much to learn (which is why I really love reading [livejournal.com profile] vickita's entries and checking out her pictures, because they're amazing), but that's this thing I really enjoy doing outside of the fannish world.

A few examples if you're so inclined )

OKAY OKAY I AM DONE. Sorry! Anyway, that is that. Now, to go back to ~work. Sorry this became so long, wow.

(this icon is just exactly how I feel right now. I'm in such agony, thinking these recs has taken me all day. Lalala.)

Day 2

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.


Maps by [livejournal.com profile] tailoredshirt. Hawaii Five-0. A Chin and Kono fanvid, absolutely full of fondness and beautiful feelings and so well edited, it's seamless and enthralling.

Love in the time of Marmite by [livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs. Inception. Arthur cooking food that feels like home and love and it's a blanket of love and amazingness. It's got all the feelings, and it's such a wonderful, different read.

A drop of blood could change it all by [livejournal.com profile] stjarna1984. McFly. I claimed Von in a challenge, and asked for her to write me something dark and bloody and angsty, and boy did she deliver. This fic, this fic, it is still one of my very favourite in the whole fandom, it's scorching hot and amazingly written, so shock full of angst and crazy feelings.
delicatale: (McDanno too close for comfort)
First of all, happy new year, my lovelies! I had a nice evening of lots of food and alcohol and all three Star Wars movies. It was fun! Although, I am old and wanted to go to sleep from, say, 10pm.

Snowflake challenge!

Day 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Drop a link to your post in the comments.


It'll end up being H50 fics, because writing in this fandom has made my writing evolve leaps and bounds, and even though some of the fics I have written in the McFly fandom I hold very dear to my heart, I realise just how inadequate they are. So here we go.

This Darkness Would Turn To Light, Steve/Danny, NC-17, ~5000 words. I felt like this story has been slightly overlooked when I posted it. I was still starting out in the fandom, maybe not quite trusted by people yet, I don't know. But I'm still really proud of it.

Make This Dock My Home, Steve/Danny, NC-17, #10,000 words. Again, I didn't post this story at a time people wanted to read it, I feel? But I put so much hard work and research into it, and into keeping a rhythm for it, it's one of my favourite stories I've written in this fandom.

Months And Miles From Dreams, Steve/Danny, NC-17 overall, ~51,000 words. Obviously this one would be in this list, right? So much sweat and tears went into writing this, and writing it the right way. There are still parts I'd rewrite now if I could, but still, it is, to date, my biggest solo achievement in fandom.

delicatale: (Danno SAYS ILU)


That is lovely (I think, particularly, it's going to strike a chord with [livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs), and I'm going to definitely look into this. As for a blanket statement: feel free to transform any of my work, and there is a list to my masterlist up on my lj page.

PS: favour - I just finished my crossdressing!Bucky/Steve fic, is anyone willing to beta?
delicatale: (Danno lonely)
So, I got home from my parents yesterday evening (which was a nightmare, let's not talk about that) and then went on to have a SHIT night and woke up at 6 and watched really bad tv shows for a while before going back to bed and then waking up at 12. Which is more like it, isn't it? Back to work tomorrow so I'm making the most of a day off, even if I'm all alone :(.

My mom bought me a pair of crazy heels for Christmas, hee XD. We're not the kind of family that give a lot of presents, so I got that, and my brother got me perfume (didn't even complain that I didn't get him anything, I think he realised I was really quite upset he didn't even text me for my birthday, in amongst other things), and my grandma knitted me a scarf ([livejournal.com profile] stjarna1984's mum also did that! I HAVE ALL THE SCARVES). It was good because I was with my family, really, that was all I wanted from these three days and I got it, so, I can't complain.

Other than that, since the next three days at work are probably going to be very quiet, I'll hopefully get to write these drabbles and other things I'm working on. That'd be good, even if I'm still quite angry at the whole 'you can't take holidays you have to be in the office otherwise there won't be enough people' when there is, for a fact, enough people. BUT, TRYING NOT TO BE BITTER, I'll just write all day and fuck it.

Speaking of writing, have a meme, I'll try to have good answers for it!
Give me a character or a pairing (or both) and I will tell you three tidbits of my personal headcanon for them.

In the meantime, I am rewatching Kings.
delicatale: (Avengers Bucky is terrified)
Hmmmm. So this afternoon was dull. Half of my office had a meeting with a new client, and since we are getting rid of an old client, these days are pretty quiet. I spied one of my colleagues playing Bejewelled while I was contemplating playing Solitaire and was trolling the interwebs instead of working on my fic - I procrastinate LIKE A PRO.

Anyway, I still managed 1,100 words on my latest fic, and I'm working ahead, so that's good. I'm not stagnating, which I like. I'd like someone's opinion on it, but as people are busy/not interested, well, I make do! And I make progress. So that's good.

I got very lovely comments on my Holiday Love meme thread already, I am all warm and fuzzy about it, thank you, whoever you were! If you want to gimme some more sugar, MAMA LIKES IT. I am a terrible beggar when it comes to love.

Lastlyyyyyy, you can't say I'm not a giver, too.

HE IS SO TERRIBLY ADORABLE.
delicatale: (Steve breaks my heart)
I've been doing this stuff a lot lately. I am just craving the love, I guess. It's been a long week, you guys, so, you know, here is my thread at the Holiday Love Meme.
delicatale: (Alex best face ever backupplan)
Okay, so, a meme, stolen from [livejournal.com profile] somehowunbroken and [livejournal.com profile] shinysylver.

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.

H50, Avengers, Inception (Arthur/Eames), hell, even McFly (Junes anyway) if you feel like it. It might be a challenge XD. Now is your chance!


I'm in pain, still. Almost slept in a chair in the living-room last night, but I couldn't get more comfortable than in bed, so gave up. Didn't sleep much - backache and torrential rain against my window, and there you have it.
Aaaaand I have feelings about H50. STEVE, YOUR FACE IS SHOWING.
delicatale: (JGL has a beard)
Okay, so I'm kind of having a WEIRD day, and I'm all over the place and I feel a mess, so I thought, hey, what would be better to mend myself and others than to host a love meme? HUH? NOTHING, THAT IS WHAT.

So, HAVE A LOVE MEME. Put in your username, and let people shower you with love.

No rules per se, anonymous is on, don't be a dick. Spread the word, don't hesitate, give and take, enjoy. I do not have a banner or linking code because I have no skills, I am sorry. I LOVE YOU GUYS.

Ooooooh! Saw this on [livejournal.com profile] verasteine's lj, I am curious!

When I write a story, what do readers immediately look for?

the timestamp meme: Choose one of my fics (H50, if possible) and give me a timestamp - e.g. two weeks before or five years later - and I'll write you a comment or ficlet telling you what happened.

Talking about my fic list - who is in favour of having summaries and details in fic lists? I usually cannot be bothered, but I've been thinking about it lately.

Okay, so, a meme or two:

Pick one of my fics, and I'll give you three details that didn't make it into the fic. Background canon, deleted scenes, or a look into the future. My choice, but if you have a specific question you can ask it in your request.

Everyone has things they write about. Everyone has things they don't write about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I haven't written about that you'd like to see me write.

Writing writing writing. Adult!Grace/Steve is over 12k now. I have thoughts about going back to my Terminator fusion (I blame seeing Anton Yelchin in Fright Night yesterday), and I've got my Zombiebang to focus on as well. I'm still not 1k into it and I guess I should give it more of a go before we get to the deadline...Got a month to go, should be doable. It's just hard to think about anything else but this Grace/Steve...

For your time:
delicatale: (Alex my body is ready backupplan)
#1 The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I write AND give me another time period (Ancient Rome, Regency England, etc.) OR give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU, superhero AU, etc.). I will then explain what story from that fandom I would AU in that era.

#2 YOU pick a scene from one of my fics that you want to see from another character's perspective. I write it!

#3 Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you one sentence from that story.

#4 If you could force me to write anything, what would it be?

#5 The thing is, when people look for stories, they always make it sound like badfic. Now, often that's because it really is badfic, but sometimes it's good and they just suck at describing the story.
So, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to summarize badly any one (or more!) of my stories and I'll try to guess which it is. You could even pretend you don't remember the pairing or fandom to make it harder to guess.
delicatale: (Chin oh unf)
Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] gossy16:

Pick a fandom and I'll tell you my...

- 3 favorite relationships
- 3 favorite characters
- 3 of my favorite moments
- 3 reasons I like/love that fandom

I have seen a lot of shows, but i also have not seen a lot of shows, so pick one and I'll let you know! Because if I make a list then I'll forget some of them.
delicatale: (Danno and Grace)
Okay, I am actually a little scared to do this, but why not.

DVD Commentary Meme.

Take a look at my Master List, and see if there are any stories or a genres you'd like to ask me a question about.

Pick a passage from my stories, up to 500 words, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the story, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

You can ask me anything - character motivation, writing process, or if you disagree with the direction I took in a story, ask me to defend it.
delicatale: (Danno what twisty face)
