I've been toying with the idea of doing a fic meme, mostly to help with writer's block. I know I for one am sort of freaking out over finishing my BBB, and I know sometimes it really helps to just focus on something else for a while.

[livejournal.com profile] schneestern and I have played around with round robin fics occasionally, and they really seem to help loosen me up so I can get back into the flow of whatever else I'm working on. Would anyone be interested in doing something like that? It would be really informal, probably just in comments. I was thinking something along the lines of a prompt meme, where people could leave one or two sentences as a beginning, and if it inspired anyone, they could write the next paragraph or two, and so on and so forth. It could be kind of fun, too, if there weren't any restrictions on how many people could respond to any part of the story, so if person A posted a few sentences, and person B responded with a paragraph, and person A responded with the third part, and then person C wanted to jump in and run with it, person B could still respond with their own take on how it continued. So there could be multiple threads going in the same fic, different branches off different parts, kind of like choose-your-own-adventure stories.

I caught up on Supernatural last night. )

So, Supernatural.

reactions )

Anybody feel like looking over a fic for me? It's bandom (haha, of course), Pete/Patrick, definitely some underage Patrick. I mostly need someone to check for errors and tell me if it's good or needs to be fleshed out more, bounce around an idea or two.

I also maybe have a Black Donnellys fic or two that might need looking over in the next day or two. >.> If anyone's interested.

1) make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment. (that way you're not leading the questions asked to fit the characters.)

2) ask your flist to post questions in the comments.

for example: 'one, nine and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. do they succeed?'
'under what circumstances might five and seven fall in love?'
'which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?'
'write a drabble in which three and five fight crime.' (...possibly not technically a question.)

3) after your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

So do that, por favor. I kind of love this meme to an unhealthy degree.


COME BE IN A GANG WITH ME. I'm serious, you guys, I don't even care if you think it's lame or not going to be any fun, IT TOTALLY IS. We will make it fun. And I'm not going to lie, there are points for recruiting (so um, you could stick my username into the "anything else?" box if you feel like it when you sign up - AND YES I SAID WHEN AND NOT IF MY FRIEND), but even if you don't use my name to sign up, just sign up because the more people that do, the more skulls my gang has to bust, the more fun it will be!

Pretty major Supernatural casting spoiler.

my thoughts - spoilers ahoy )

Also, is it kind of lame that for a second, I wondered if saying there was a major casting spoiler was a spoiler itself?
quarterturn: (spn - green winchester)
I don't want to comment on the SPN misogyny wank one way or the other, and this question is purely out of curiosity, not intended to prove one side right or wrong.

I've been slacking on the posting lately, but Supernatural finale! I must react!

obvious spoilers, and it's not all squee, so beware if you're still riding the finale high )

So what's the deal with everyone being grumpy all at once? Seems like it never fails, if one person on my flist had a bad day/week, so did everyone else, and then so did I. Is this like a menstrual thing where we all sync up? Or a psychological thing? Or because it's cold and dreary out for a lot of people? What is going on, and plz to be making it stop. We all deserve some bright, sunshine-y days.

re: SPN last night, I don't have a whole lot of thinky thoughts. I did, but then I forgot them, so maybe more on that later. Next week though HOMG. !!!

I've been watching a lot of British shows lately, and the operative phrase there is a lot. Whoever recommended The Mighty Boosh? You can probably ask for anything you want and I'd be obligated to do it. THAT SHOW IS BRILLIANT. Not only did I get hooked, but I made my siblings watch it and now they're both hooked. I kid you not, they have watched the entire first season at least three times, and the second and third almost as much. My sister ordered a multi-region DVD player just so she could buy the DVDs. (It didn't work, but that's another story.)

So then of course I had to go on a hunt for more Noel Fielding (not that I don't love Julian just as much, but Noel is SO PRETTY with his hair and his clothes and his tiny little self omg) and I discovered The Big Fat Quiz of the Year, and wow. Noel Fielding/Russell Brand may be my new OTP. And Richard Ayoade, hot damn. I thought he was just the crazy shaman from TMB and the geeky guy from The IT Crowd, and then bam, he's the hot funny guy. :D

And The IT Crowd! And Roman's Empire! And Garth Marenghi's Darkplace! And I rewatched a little bit of Green Wing, and thought ok, well. I've been avoiding Doctor Who for long enough, if the British have created the genius comedy shows I've been watching, let's check out the drama.

I'm almost all the way through the second series of the new stuff, and yeah. It's good. It's definitely one of those things that I could see myself falling for hard and fast if I let myself, not least because I actually like the female character on it. Then again, I tend not to fall hard and fast for things I know I won't be involved in fandom for. I don't really know why. And the Doctor Who fandom, just from my limited outside perspective, seems large and loomy and terrifying. Which is the same kind of view I have on bandom, except less scary and more coated with glitter. I had a whole big thing written out about why I want to dive into bandom and why I'm terrified to. It will be re-composed another day, I'm sure.

This is such a surface post, I really want to just gush about how much I love The Mighty Boosh and how unfair it is that even if the live show does come to America, it probably won't come anywhere near me, and how I'm definitely contemplating writing Noel/Russell RPF but it could so easily go wrong. But I would gush for days. DAYS. And there is so much else I need to be doing. So. Instead, I leave you with the following pictures of Noel and Russell and their adorableness.

Also! [livejournal.com profile] svmadelyn has her annual Valentine's Day Game going on. Go! Play! Love!

So, TV! Which, gosh, I watch way too much of.

Dirty Sexy Money 1x01, 1x02, 1x03 )

Dexter 1x01, 1x02, 1x03 )

Supernatural 3x02 )

Which brings me to a question I've been pondering: just how many women has Dean slept with? (Saying he's only slept with women, which I'm not, but. That's a question for another time.) So, poll!

This poll isn't to gauge how many times he's had sex, because I'm sure we're all aware that if you have Dean Winchester in your bed, you do not stop at once. Ever. Just how many women overall he's been with. I know the number increments are wonky, but they seemed to fit.

poll! )

Supernatural, continued )

Heroes 2x04 )

This is super long. If I had something to offer in appreciation of your reading, I'd offer it, but seeing as how the rain that we've been having for TWO WEEKS STRAIGHT makes my internet connection stop working every five minutes or so, I have not been doing any uploading. So you'll just have to take my less fun thanks very much. ♥

This is going to be a totally random entry, sorry, just warning you now.

So our power went out earlier, because the power company is running new, bigger lines around our neighborhood for the new ethanol plant (yay living directly under huge power lines! Cancer, \O/!) and of course, when our power goes out, my first instinct is to clean. Because really, when else am I going to do it? When we have power, I either want to be doing something on the computer or watching TV. And our power goes out often enough that it's a totally workable plan.

I think tonight my siblings, Allen, and I are going out to a cemetery and to this supposedly haunted house known only as "Hell." I don't even know. I've never heard of it and I've lived around here my whole life, but I suppose it's worth checking out. I told my sister and brother I didn't want to go unless Allen went, because he's one of those very skeptical, very logical people that does believe in the paranormal, but only when there's definite evidence, so he'll be pointing out that we're all idiots for getting scared and then I won't be as scared. :D Of course, I'd be much, much more enthused about going if I knew there was a chance I might run into a certain pair of brothers also doing some supernatural investigating... :D

Speaking of which! I watched the director's cuts for this weeks SPN, and my thoughts )

This is probably really lame of me to be so excited about, but I got my first non-flist (that I know of) rec today! Or found it today, at least. And I don't know if that's not something I should be as excited about as I am, but I'm pretty giddy and it means a lot to me, so. You know. If it's sad and lame, too bad. The weird thing is that it was for that Ryan/Kelly Office fic I wrote, which was my first (and probably only) fic in that fandom, and the first het fic I've posted for public consumption, so that's interesting. But also awesome!

And while we're on the subject, I have a couple recs of my own.

Before You Leave, 300, Gorgo/Leonidas, NC-17 by [livejournal.com profile] schneestern. Seriously, hot and gorgeous and wonderful. The character insight is fantastic, and the sex is smokin'.

another bag of bricks, The Black Donnellys, Tommy/Jenny, Tommy/Kate, Tommy/Kevin if you squint, ensemble, PG-13 by [livejournal.com profile] technosage. This is over ten thousand words, and it works better than an episode, in my opinion. The character voices are dead on, the tone is dark but funny in spots and bittersweet in others, just like the show, and the plot is believable and moves quick enough that when you hit the end, you really won't believe you've just read an eleven thousand-word story.

Also! The porning is ON over at [livejournal.com profile] justthatdirty for the Heroes pornathon, so you should probably go write something hot and dirty and kinky.

I have a billion million things to be doing, and things I owe people and e-mails and comments to get back to, and like, ten trillion pages of my flist to catch up with (which, just so you know, will never happen, but I am aiming to get back to commenting regularly, so if I missed something important, let me know) but right now I'm gonna go shower (because yeah, I'm kinda skanky like that and haven't showered yet today) and possibly finish cleaning since I'm in the mood now and find something to eat!
quarterturn: (spn - the family that bleeds together)
First of all, I know I have people from VA on my flist, but I don't know if any of you attend the school that was terrorized this morning, so, you know. Check in, ok? And massive hugs and squishes to all of you, and maybe some cuddling too, because this stuff makes me stop and think how much I appreciate every single one of you.

Secondly, how about some SPN promo pics? I feel a little awkward being squeeful over them when there was a tragedy today. Is that weird? :-/

promos for Folsom Prison Blues, probably pretty spoilery )

I have so much I want to update about, but I am so lacking motivation.
quarterturn: (bd - brothers)
Told you I'd update again. Prepare yourselves, I may be spammy today.

So. I guess according to thefutoncritic.com, The Black Donnellys is going on hiatus as of April 23rd. NBC, FTL! How do you do an inverted YAY arms? /O\? Those are BOO arms. I hate to be pessimistic about it, but we've all known the numbers have sucked for a while, so I'm not holding my breath for a return.

Also, why is more of my flist not talking about this? super hella major SPN finale spoiler - I'm going to write it in white, too, so you can comment on other stuff if you feel the need )

To add a little levity to my day comes my girl Pam, [livejournal.com profile] dementedlove, with whom I'm talking to about future RP ventures, and I mention that I'd RP anything in the world with her, and off the top of my head I say I would RP Three's Company. And she comes back with this:

"haha Jack/Larry Three's Company RP FTW! hahaha and slutty!jack and possesiveskeeze!larry and maybe we'll throw in a stalker!Mr. Furley, and he's watching Jack and Larry through hidden tunnels in his apartment building walls, and he finally kills Larry and drugs Jack and kidnaps him and ties him up so he can put his wrinkled balls in Jacks mouth. hahah ew."

EW INDEED. But really effing funny, too? YES.
quarterturn: (spn - IT'S TRUE HE'S A GIANT)
An update, in list form!

- TBD: 1x05, spoilery for 1x06, but nothing worse than the previews )

- My brother thinks he's hilarious (and most times he is, but don't tell him that) and wrote "Canadians like it on top" on the back window of my car. There's a running joke in my house that my room is Canada. I made him wash it off before I went anywhere.

- While playing spades last night, my sister made the statement (in a totally innocent context): "I like to take it in the face." This was possibly the funniest thing she's done since we convinced her that camels spit acid.

- After spades, Allen and I watched the Magic Bullet mini-blender infomercial and decided it may be the best thing ever.

- My goal today is to get my sister caught up on SPN. We watched CSPWDT and Simon Says yesterday, I'm thinking we can get through the rest of them if we do nothing but watch SPN for the rest of the day. Best way to spend a day ever, Y/Y?

- Watching those two episodes reminded me how much I disliked the plot of CSPWDT. The brotherly interaction was top notch, however. Simon Says was, as always, awesomesauce.

- I finally started watching Entourage. I've seen 1x01 and 1x02, and here are my thoughts: )

- I got myself a ho at Sweet Charity. [livejournal.com profile] picayochan will be writing me oodles of smut, it will be wonderful to the kabillionth degree. Coming in at just slightly less wonderful than the overwhelming wonderfulness of fandom raising ten thousand dollars for charity.

- Real life update coming later? I don't know, I've been trying to write one for days and every time I get something written, I chicken out and delete it. New friends, if you want in on that real life filter, drop me a comment.

- Please to be giving me your definition of "crackfic". Not what you think everyone else thinks it is, not what you think the popular definition is, your personal definition of crackfic. And if you feel like it, how you arrived at that definition. Mine later.

Dudes, I finally had a Winchester dream last night. Sadly, Sam was totally absent. Actually, that might not be so sad.

I'm in this gas station and there's a female clerk and Dean Winchester is in there, too, and we're kind of chatting it up/flirting. I think we know each other pretty well already, because we're goofing around and I steal his keys and go hop in the Impala. I only live like a mile away from this gas station in real life, and in my dream I was just going to take it to my house and then come back. But Dean's watching me through the window of the gas station, and he is NOT AMUSED, so I ended up turning back early. But oh, guys. Oh man. Driving the Impala was like everything you'd imagine, even just dream!Impala. It was amazing. Impala sex fic recs, anyone? The rest of the dream was about me going back to the station and the bad guy from Roadkill trying to kill me, and Dean being very older brotherly in his protectiveness.

Speaking of Roadkill, though...

finally watched it )

Oh, heh, yeah, about St. Patrick's Day. My sister ended up cancelling on us at the last minute, and I was in a pretty terrible mood anyway, so Allen came over with booze and food and we ended up just chilling. I had a Guinness for the first time ever, and man. That stuff is SO much better than the regular beer we have here. I've been trying to get myself accustomed to the yellow beer here for years, and I just can't do it. I attribute my Guinness love to my Irish heritage. lol.

I also had four mini bottles of Kahlua chocolate latte (YUM) and then I passed out. Not passed out passed out, I just got so sleepy I couldn't keep my eyes open and ending up falling asleep at like eleven. I AM A PARTY ANIMAL.

Pam ([livejournal.com profile] dementedlove) wrote me the most awesome John/Dean, and it is my life's goal right now to get her to post it. Seriously. It's awesome. And we're gonna discuss expanding on the plot because she's got a damn good one, and just. aljfasljsfd. I am so lucky to have this girl. ♥

Umm. I totally did not get my Departed/TBD story done for [livejournal.com profile] tbd_stpaddys. I slept almost all goddamned day. I THINK ALLEN DRUGGED MY GUINNESS. However, I'm sure I'll still try to finish it, because I'm kind of psyched about it.

Aaaand, [livejournal.com profile] schneestern's got me thinking of a plot bunny involving Jensen/Jared and the use of sex toys during interviews. >.>

My hand hurts/is possibly bruised because I tried to break up some ice with my fist. Turns out I am not Chuck Norris and I cannot break things with my fist, even ice. I would've tried a roundhouse kick, but I figured it might get messy. Plus, I was not wearing shoes.

And now some Heroes picspam. Zachary Quinto and a couple Adrian Pasdar, maybe one or two Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere.

orgy of hotness, anyone? )

ETA: No I definitely don't have over 70 tabs open in Firefox fight now. >.> GIVE ME TIME I WILL GET BACK TO EVERYTHING.

Also, I seriously need you guys' expertise/opinion on this: Is the word 'gypped' a slur? I have my own opinion about it, but I want to hear what you guys think first.
quarterturn: (justthatdirty - come play with us ;))
So I crashed last night, right? Totally ready for a full night's sleep for the first time in weeks, ready to get my ass to bed early so I could be up early and be productive.

But, you know. I was still buzzing from the excessive amount of caffeine I had yesterday so I tossed and turned, and long story short, got up and watched A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints.

my far from thinky review - not really spoilery but just in case )

Now, all of you who've seen it and feel like reading/writing/loving on some fanfic: [livejournal.com profile] saints_slash. Which, as I told [livejournal.com profile] picayochan, makes me think of Boondock Saints slash, but it's not. However, it does give rise to a good question: A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints/Boondock Saints crossover, Y/Y?

Secondly: [livejournal.com profile] justthatdirty. You know those awesome Heroes pornathons [livejournal.com profile] technosage hosts in her journal every so often? Well, here's a community for them. Except they're not just for Heroes anymore, kids. We've got a The Black Donnellys pornathon coming up soon, and then Heroes, and then either Supernatural or CWRPS, and it'll just keep rotating. And probably have a few various others thrown in for good measure.

And I was going to post a poll about something, but it's something that would definitely throw off your porn, so it'll wait.

New SPN tonight OMG SLKJFSDKLJSDF I almost succeeded in holding in my fangirlish squees of delight but I can't, sorry.

ETA: Total and complete facepalm moment. My Big Sister from the Big/Little project? Yeah. Just look under the cut to see why she kicks so much ass.

damn straight )
quarterturn: (dexter - we love dexter)
Those of you who've been around a while might remember my Mustachioed Pistachio and friends posts from a while ago. Well, there's pretty much nobody more awesome than [livejournal.com profile] subtle__sarcasm right now, because look what she drew:

The Mustachioed Pistachio )

I should probably hire her to do the illustrations when I get around to writing that series, as long as she'll work for love and glitter, because that is an amazing representation, and she even has him saying what I said he'd say.

That has pretty much put me in a fantabulous mood even though it's six-thirty in the morning, I haven't slept, they are predicting another storm just as bad as the last one for tomorrow, and [livejournal.com profile] catalyst2 passed along some less than awesome news about the premiere date of season two of Dexter.

under here, just in case it's considered a spoiler )

Ok, I know by now when I say 'Black Donnellys friending meme' you are all collectively rolling your eyes, but I keep getting comments on that thing and it amazes me, so I pimped it again and you guys should go check out all the new people on there and make more friends. Maybe you will get as lucky as I did and find someone who leaves you comment porn on the same night the show premieres. Yeah, that's my not-so-subtle way of poking you guys to go read [livejournal.com profile] ubi_es_calem's Tommy/Kevin-ish comment porns which are amazing.

And for those of you who are into such things: MOST AMAZING SPN FANVID EVER. - originally linked by [livejournal.com profile] lokiie who basically wins link of the year. It's Wincest for real. I mean. If I didn't know beforehand that it was manipped, I seriously would have thought this girl got her hands on raw footage of Jensen and Jared.

And [livejournal.com profile] stego is back, which tops off my whole week month year life.
