I kinda want to get back into LJ-ing a bit more. There are so many things I;ve missed, but I'm slowly but surely growing to hate Tumblr when it comes to fandom things - it sucks, it's immature, it's full of wank and hate and it's way closer to RL than my comfort level is at, soooooooo. LIVEJOURNAL! How I missed you. You are led by incompetent assholes, but I still love you dearly.

Did I tell you? I am SUPER excited about Yuletide. It is my first year participating and I am IN LOVE with the fandoms I'm requesting and oferring, even though I wish there was more I could pick from (like The OC, or Pitch Black, which are, apparently, not eligible). It should be fun to do it, I am really looking forward to it, even if I also have 9000 more words to write for my Teen Wolf big bang, and also 3K to write for my Teen Wolf reversebang. I have dropped out of the RBB, because of so many different reasons. Luckily my artist is getting a fic anyway, I was the second claimer, so it should be okay.

In other news, HATERS AND NON-BELIEVERS TO THE LEFT, BECAUSE spoilers? I guess? For the SHIELD tv show )

In terms of real life: I went on a date that didn't go well; my company is going through a restructure, but I got a pay rise at about the same time the restructure process started and thus I was told in not so many words that my job is pretty safe; life at home is quite great; MY BIRTHDAY IS IN 22 DAYS. I love birthdays.

Also, I want my new tattoo like, yesterday. I need to pester my artist friends a bit more.
delicatale: (Avengers Cap is badass)
Right, a few things.

1. [livejournal.com profile] lanyon makes me happy e'rrrrryday by indulging me and writing stupid boys in love with me;
2. [livejournal.com profile] stjarna1984 posted this on her tumblr earlier and I died inside with glee:

Now, Cap in the comics has worn a dress before, and so has Chris Evans, sooooooo...where are the crossdressing!Cap fics? Huh? HUH?
3. After the express auction of last night, I find myself really wanting to put myself up for auction again. There's nothing going on, though, and probably no-one in the Avengers fandom would bid on me, but still;
4. Okay, help needed here. [livejournal.com profile] someidiothasice has shown me the way to a few, but say I wanted to dig into comic books (interested in Cap, Winter Soldier, Avengers, mainly), which would you recommend? I have bought the recent Winter Soldier issues and also got the Captain America/Winter Soldier by Brubaker compilation. Don't really want to read Civil Wars, but if there are other stuff you think I should really read, show me the way?

CHEERS! I am going back into workmode.
delicatale: (T-Hard is pensive)
Finished watching Generation Kill, and I have all the feelings of manly men not talking about their feelings and expressing themselves through their fists and VJBFKLVFJKL DOC WAS MY FAVOURITE. If anyone has fic to rec me, please do, thank youuuuu. I have a feeling the biggest pairing is probably going to be Fick/Brad, I AM OKAY WITH THAT.

Still writing my Phil-and-Clint-hide-away-in-England fic. Taking my time and savouring it, really. Hoping to finish it this week, though...Got a Big Bang to write with [livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs, too! This stuff won't write itself!

Oh, guys, I have just read tweets that Tom Hardy is poorly and might not make an appearance to the premiere tonight. Now, I am still going, FOR REASONS THAT ARE OBVIOUSLY NOT SHALLOW AT ALL, but this makes me sad. I don't want him to be poorly :(. I guess if he's not there it eliminates the 'what do I do/say apart from unladylike giggles and swooning if he ever comes close to me' issue. Issue which I do not have with Chris Pine.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] ariadne83 has the most amazing plot bunny and I want to roll in it forever and ever because, yes. It is pretty much perfection. Also, there is now a [livejournal.com profile] bucky_kink community! HOW HAPPY AND WONDERFUL.

Speaking of Bucky, Just Jared has reported that Sebastian Stan is to guest in an episode of Once Upon a Time, which makes me SO HAPPY, because a) Sebastian Stan, b) Once Upon a Time, c) those two things together.

Okay, I am done with the most random entry in the history of EVER. THANK YOUUUU.
delicatale: (Avengers Tom Hiddleston is lounging)
Okay, so, I suspect today is going to be terrible in all sorts of way because I have NOTHING TO DO at work and if I keep on being stalled in my fic I'm going to cry. BUT, last night we went to see Sherlock Holmes 2 and that was a rioooootttttt, and now I'm trolling on Tumblr as I do usually, and, oh, look, I may have just found the prettiest picture ever.

Under a cut because it's big and I'm nice like that. (more pretty in the comments, by the by. )

There you have it. I have no words at all. Okay, now to go try to write some fic, or something.
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.

delicatale: (Tom Loooove)

So, I watched the pilot of Once Upon A Time this morning.

Spoilers for Once Upon A Time 1.01 (gotta start somewhere!) )

Books; )

Music; )

Movies; )

Okay, that was all.
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: (Scott and his tongue)
So, thanks to the magic of Tumblr, I learn new things errrrryday! Like the fact that they're ~sort of redoing Mad Max, which is making me VERY excited, because, MAD MAX, okay. I mean, as long as they don't try too hard like they did with Tron: Legacy. ANYHOODLES, EXCITEMENT.

Have been a bit here and there lately, haven't I? I've got 2 Steve/Danny fics on the go and ideas for more Arthur/Eames and my parents were there at the weekend and work is busy and LA is in a week, and, and and.

But! [livejournal.com profile] zoronoa drew Danny for me, so you should go over her LJ and tell her just how amazing it is, because, IT IS.

There. Random post is random, HELLOOOOOOOOO.
delicatale: (Steve breaks my heart)
I want to say thank you, for all the v-gifts I've been receiving recently! I don't know why but just, thank you ♥. You have no idea what it means to me.

I'm feeling a bit strange. I'll put it on painkillers, I guess. My head is all messed up, and I really want to cry, even though I have no actual reason for it to? I just feel like it, and I don't really like it. *shrugs* weird.

I have decided not to do NaNo. Which doesn't mean I won't write the undercover bikers fic, just. Not as NaNo. I won't have enough time and life is too busy these days for me to be able to do it, so I'm doing the ~responsible thing and not get myself into it and get frustrated if I don't manage. I might do my own, personal NaNo at some point next year, who knows? It's not like I can't choose to do it whenever I want to...

My zombie fic was recced over Tumblr, I was amused! I'm so glad people found it funny and entertaining, sometimes even cute. I just wanted to write it like a video game, with a lot of stupid banter, and I'm happy if people found it fun!

♥ ♥ ♥ people.

I love you all!

delicatale: (Steve smugitty)
Several things.

+ Don't want to get into any debate on the casting spoilers, but, let's just say, many things in debates I have seen sadden me a lot.

+ Work is mildly frustrating, but plannage of things to do in LA with the girls make my day much better!

+ I sent in my first [livejournal.com profile] sd_ldws drabble - it's not my best, but I was surprisingly uninspired by the prompt, and i find 500 words a bit too much for a ~drabble thing. But heh, it's done! And if I get booted, it's okay.

+ most importantly, [livejournal.com profile] tailoredshirt and I present to you, a new H50 community! Because there is never enough!

So I'm at Dreamwidth as well, but don't expect much of this - I like LJ and I am used to LJ and maintaining two friends lists seem like way too much trouble for me. It's more of a backup thing. My fics are all on my hard drive at home, or on AO3, or on GDocs. I've never relied on LJ for archiving, maybe that's why I'm not too bothered. Dreamwidth has always been slow for me and even worse in the past few days so that's not necessarily the best, either. I don't know. Anyway, I'm delicatale over there so if you want to add me in case of emergencies/more attacks, go ahead. I also have a few invite codes, I think. Anyway, I'm in the process of importing everything over there, because I didn't do it before. I may regret it, I don't know why, but heh.

Other than that, I wrote two ficlets these past few days and if LJ seem to be working all right, I'll post later on. Also finished the Steve-and-a-baby fic that [livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs were working on (although, working, not really) and that was fun ^^. My Muse is sort of all over the place lately...

Nevertheless, I am still offering myself for fic here, so please, if you'd like me to write something for you and have a little bit of money to spare for a good cause, go ahead and bid!

Finished the first series of Games Of Thrones - I amuse myself getting annoyed at the tiniest things that DID NOT HAPPEN LIKE THAT IN THE BOOK. In terms of the book I'm nearing the end of Book number 2, have bought book number 3 part 1, and I am so so so sucked in it, I dream about it. It upsets me and disgusts me and moves me and it's very very enthralling. These characters, my...

Just because I can. And he's biting his lip.

ANYWAY. It is Friday, I have been paid yesterday, I am seeing McFly next Tuesday, my hormones are sort of leaving me alone, I have fic to post and read, it's all good. Hopefully. Let's not jinx it.
delicatale: (Steve pondering)
Kind of in a bleh mood. Don't have too much to do at work, which I'm glad about, but then I'm still waiting for more info about the mistake I made the other day and I keep on giving myself scares over nothing. I should be more attentive and right now it's making me feel guilty and a little weary.
In related work news, I have applied for another job. Don't get me wrong, I like where I am today - people are cool, I have a lot of freedom and trust (maybe too much), the pay is good, as is the office. But this job I applied for is exactly what I know to do, but for ASOS. And I've been dreaming about working in-house for a fashion company. I'm tired of gambling and always coming back to gambling even when I thought I wouldn't have to, I want to work in an area that I am passionate about. So maybe it doesn't reflect on the way I dress, fair enough, I'm more converse-jeans-shirt kind of girl than heels and fancy shit, but that doesn't mean I can't be passionate about it anyway. So we'll see - I don't have high hopes and I'm okay with it, but I thought I should give it a try anyway.

In other news I kinda want to write something - I have porn in the mind because of One Drop That's Me And All The Rest Is You and the current scene in the Bakery!AU, but Neve isn't around because she's got guests coming and things to do and my current WiP(s) are not really porn-inducing material so I'm just like /o\. IDK, DUDES. LIFE IS HARD.
