|February 21st, 2015 09:32 am - Pairing sillies meme!|
This meme seems to be going around again - I got it via avanti_90
. I need something to bribe myself to get to-do list done with, anybody want to give me a pairing and some numbers?
It can be any pairing from any of the fandoms you know I know canon for, except I'm going to exclude RPF this time, because I'm so incredibly behind on canon for all my old RPF fandoms. (There are some fiction canons I'm also incredibly behind on, I'll let you know if you hit one of them.)Comment with the name of a ship from a fandom I know and I will tell you a bit about how each of the following scenarios would go down for them:
1. Fake dating
3. Sexpollen/fuck or die/aliens made them do it
5. Their first kiss
6. Meeting the parents
7. Moving in together
8. A crossover of my choice
9. An AU of my choice
10. If you like, another trope/scenario of your choice
|August 8th, 2013 01:38 am - Meme via tumblr|
Okay, I hardly ever meme, but I need something to re-awaken my fanfiction organs, I think, so here, ask me about the one that's going around tumblr right now. (Not posting to tumblr because trying to do this sort of thing in tumblr posts is terrible in all ways.)scootiemcbooty
Put a ship in
my ask a comment and I will tell you a bit about how each of the following scenarios would go down for them:
Okay, requests closed, sorry, I've wasted too much time on this already. :P
- Fake dating
- Sexpollen/fuck or die/aliens made them do it
- Secret kinks
- Their first kiss
- Meeting the parents
- Moving in together
- A crossover of my choice
- An au of my choice
- If you like, another trope/scenario of your choice
...any ship, but depending on what ship you ask for, you may get what you deserve.
|May 16th, 2012 11:49 pm - Meme Fills Update|
...okay, that hypothetical crossover meme has reached levels of ludicrosity previously unattained on this journal.
Here is a list of fills so far:Dresden Files/Vorkosigan Saga
(consisting of some extra bits of canon for the crossover I already wrote for this.)Temeraire/Princess Bride ideas
for finchPinkwaterverse/Cthulhu mythos
(in which I fail miserably; surely *somebody* can come up with a better one?)
does Major League Baseball/The pirate Rabbi and Thor/Star Trek to my promptsWhite Collar/Pirates of the Caribbean
and DCU/The Lone Gunmen
. (Somebody needs to write a pirates/white collar crossover actually. Desperately. Also need fic now where Frohike tangos with Barbara Gordon, but that's a given.)some flailing as regards Temeraire/Sherlock Holmes
for ellen_fremedonBritish Comedian RPF/Vorkogisan Saga
(This one got kind of out of hand after lannamichaels
tapped in. It probably helps to note that we were borrowing some of the characterization from a previous conversation regarding Aral Vorkosigan, Epic Troll
. Also: this article on how traditional Chinese stand-up has fared under communism
which I incidentally already had bookmarked, yes I did background research for this bit.) marginaliana
asked for a British Comedy RPF crossover and I'm afraid in the elaboration we focused almost entirely on the Barrayar part, but I promise if I actually wrote it there would be a bunch of scenes of David and Charlie and Jimmy and Dara and so on meeting in hidden, poorly-lit back rooms at the university and playing at revolution.Avengers/Sesame Street
. An excuse to write fic for the Teeny Little Super Guy! Yay!Homestuck/Colbert Report
, featuring unbridgeable idealogical differences. And stabs. Mostly stabs.Homestuck/Vorkosigan Saga
. In which there are fantrolls.Homestuck/Ranma 1/2
, featuring brownbetty
contributing their own versions as well, which we must encourage them to write. yes.
Unfilled, still to do (list mostly for my reminder):
Avengers/Young Wizards and Vorkosigan/Avengers (I really need to watch that movie, I guess)
Something Sutcliff/Rihannsu-ish (Every time I poke at this I just come out concluding I need to re-read Rihannsu more. Tragic!)
This is actually an interesting way to find out what fandoms my commenters care about! Avengers yes (kind of obviously) but there's lots of Vorkosigan and Homestuck and Temeraire on there too, hmm.
And yes, I will still fill prompts if people leave them. Not crossovered out yet!
And as usual, all bunnies and notfic posted by me here are completely available for other people to pick up and run with, if you should chance to be so inspired.
|May 15th, 2012 11:57 am - Hypothetical crossovers meme|ellen_fremedon
has started a meme
, which is terribly dangerous but too tempting for me to ignore, so here:
Let's play the Hypothetical Crossover game! Name any two (or more) fandoms you know I'm familiar with*, and I will tell you how I would, hypothetically**, cross them over!
Take the meme, spread the meme, do the meme, love the meme.
*Fandoms I'm familiar with: written on AO3
(expand full list), tagged on DW
(under fandoms: , though note my DW tags are a mess atm); marked 'read' on LT: SF and YA
, comics (and art)
. (If you want to be particularly evil, you can give me two fiction fandoms + a nonfiction book
and I will mash all three.)
**I thought about saying that you can't name a pair of fandoms about which you know I have already a) written, b) hypothetically discussed, or c) declared I am not writing, but nah. Just, if you give me one of those, you deserve what you get in return!
|September 2nd, 2010 09:55 pm - Another thing|
gave me that "explain five icons" meme
. Here are the five icons she chose ( These may contain major spoilers for some of the small fandoms my icons are from. )
If anybody want me to pick five icons for them, I suppose I could. :D
(look at me showing off my l33t new css skills, too!)
|March 11th, 2010 10:26 pm - Some scraps of things.|
Here are some posts I have made to DW communities in the past week:asexuality
: Queering the Census: We ALL Count
, in which I gripe about the Queer the Census campaign
, which is about greater visibility for LGBT people but erases everyone who isn't heterosexual but doesn't fit it one of the L-G-B-T boxes.common_nature
, In which elke_tanzer
and I have started a community that is all about nature, and you all should join it! And post stuff there! And leave comments!create_my_comm
: Little Details
, in which we are all agreed that DW needs a community that is like l_d only awesomer, and none of us want to be the one to start it! (So you should!)starry_sea
: Anybody still here?
, in which I apologize abjectly for abandoning my own community, and talk about how to get it active again.tarot
: An Amazing Tarot Blog
, in which I rave at length about Pre-Gebelin Tarot History
, which discusses tarot from a strictly historical and rational perspective, a perspective which is deeply awesome and far, far too hard to find.treknovelfest
: Illustration for "Three T'kay Stories"
, in which I have done a lot of research in the Starfleet Archives and found photographs & descriptions of the original ancient Vulcan artifacts that were used to illustrate ljc
's treknovelfest entry based on my prompt, From The Terran Coyote to The Klingon K'Ortar: Tricksters of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants
...there, that can be my followfriday. :D (What posts have you made to DW communities in the past week?)
Most of those were posts I have been procrastinating on making for months! Having them done is like breathing clear air again. (Also, omg, I might actually have to change my to-do list now - I'm afraid the dry-erase marker might have set in on some of them.) There's several more I've had on hold, though - maybe now that I'm on a roll I can scratch even more of them off.
In the spirit of getting things done, how about that WIPs meme that was going around awhile ago? One paragraph from everything in my "In progress" folder, was it?( This includes fics, meta posts, vids, fanmixes, and various stranger things, in all states of completion, fyi. )
...it says something about me that my reaction to all of that laid out is "That's less than thirty things! Not at bad as I thought!" If you ask for more information about any of them in comments, I will probably give it to you. (At length! ^_^ )
Also while I am doing random meme-y things, poall:

|February 7th, 2010 10:12 pm - 101 fic kinks|
Yeah, every so often I do a meme. :D
This is the "list 101 things you like to see in fiction" meme. stultiloquentia
has a list of people's lists
following the spread of the meme.
These are not all sex-related, in fact most of 'em aren't. And they're not bulletproof: most of them make me as unhappy when badly done as happy when well done, unfortunately, and many of them are very frequently screwed up. (But I still give people credit for trying!)( 101 Fic Kinks )
...yes, we are still snowed in, what gave you that idea? Also, wow, my list of kinks seems to be considerably more upbeat than most of the other lists I'm reading! I like stories where people get to be happy and functional. D:
(I was actually planning to try to make the Holmes vid that's currently haunting my dreams, but after I did all the clipping, I realized that trying to make a narrative-heavy, 8-minute-long constructed reality vid about a character for whom there is less than four minutes of footage total *might* be a tad ambitious when I haven't vidded in five years. So I got an insane Mary/Irene pre-movie bunny instead and have been re-reading "Sign of the Four" by candlelight.)
|May 28th, 2009 04:14 pm - 10 Ships|
So there is a meme in which people list ten of their favorite ships that no-one may ever break up, and they try to get people to see if they all have anything in common! So here's some of the 'ships that I'm totally tinhat about, where you can do whatever you want in the story as long as you keep my ship in and I'll be happy:
1. James T. Kirk/Enterprise
2. Jack Sparrow/Black Pearl
3. River Tam/Serenity
(Also, Kaylee, Mal, Wash & Inara/Serenity: they're not with each other, they're just all with her.) (The Enterprise
crew are all with each other too, though.)
4. the Doctor/the TARDIS (also, the Doctor/Bessie.)
5. Stephen Colbert/the Colbert Report
6. Han Solo/Millennium Falcon
7. Ray Vecchio/the Riv (theirs is a doomed and tragic love.)
8. Dean Winchester/the Impala
9. John Sheppard/Atlantis/Rodney McKay
10. Bruce Wayne/Gotham City
...I may, on occasion, take the word "ship" slightly too literally...
(I was listening to my book on tape of "Presumption of Death" yesterday, for my Dorothy Sayers/Torchwood fest fic that's now officially two days overdue, and I got to the bit where Flying Officer Jerry Wimsey of the RAF is describing what it feels like to stroke a spitfire
, and I kind of melted. I mean, young Jerry was win *anyway*, but when you add my pre-existing weakness for flying aces
... yeah. mmmmmm.)
|April 21st, 2009 12:25 am - Some things.|
1. I posted a tutorial on how to set up an OpenID account on Journalfen
, so if anyone has JF comments importd here that they'd like to eventually claim, they should mark it. (metafandom
is still linking to the draft version of the tutorial, but hopefully that will change.)
/me officially washes her hands of S2 forever.
2. /me has sauntered vaugely downward into the #dw irc channel
. Curse you, Opera, why did you make that so easy?
If previous experience with IRC stands, I will stay in channel for about a week, and then get behind and never go back. But hEll bot is adorable.
posted this meme:Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so others can play along.
...and I told myself that the next time somebody I read posted it, I would do it. So:( local politics, regional soft drinks, spike jones, the primordial ass, crossovers, fleegix, and oracular pigs )
PS: Is anyone else getting an occasionally-recurring error when they try to preview from the web interface? I keep getting: [Error: Can't call method "imgtag" on unblessed reference at '/home/dw/current/htdocs/preview/entry.bml' line 106. @ dfw-web02]
Unblessed indeed, DW. Unblessed indeed.

|October 6th, 2008 11:55 pm - Specially meme-scented entry!|
So I have been trying not to get to emotionally involved with the politics (though I still want to do that "Sarah Palin or TGP
: Who Is More Qualified?" point-by-point comparison), but I have been following fivethirtyeight.com pretty closely. And OMG, if Obama takes the South
? That will be not only win, it'll be the most important thing to happen in American politics in my *lifetime*.
Anyway.1. Comment on this post.
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Think of 5 fictional characters and post their names and your comments on these characters in your blog.stellar_dust
gave me "D".
...I had a list of twenty-five characters to pick from, and that was before I checked my notes. So, um, have the short list as meme x 3.
And hey, while I'm at it, why not give me two numbers between 1 and 15 and I'll write you a comment-fic where those two characters meet. :D (Random or calculated, I don't even care.)( Five Large Fandoms )( Five Small Fandoms )( Five Nonexistent Fandoms )
...Yeah, I should probably stop there. Even if it means I have to leave out David Starr, and Mike Doonesbury, and Dick and Dorothea (the D's), and Diana Fowley, and Dick Grayson**, and Dickon Sowerby**, and Daystar, and Death**, and Doli the Dwarf, and ....
(** marks characters I have either written in fic or tried to write.)
|August 14th, 2008 09:00 pm - why I keep making_light on my blogroll|
So I got linked to The Ball of Kerrimuir, fandom edition1
, which led by logical steps to Avram Grumer's Denvention sketchnotes2
, which of course led me to Raiders of the Lost Basement3
, which referenced Ah, Sweet Idiocy!4
, which took me along the primrose path to Mike Resnick's overview of published fan histories
, which has me once again wanting to actually work on codifying the history of 21st century fanficdom into something narrative-like and zine-ish5
. With lots and lots of cross-references to kerfuffles in fandoms of the past, for maximum schadenfreude. 6
What do you think -- too soon?
Anyway, there was this meme going around about your five fannish crushes, and why they would never work? Here's mine! Only, bonus: I don't give you the names of the characters, you have to *guess*! (It's made easier by the fact that there are at least three correct answers to each of these...)( The sad part is, I considered putting things like 'is an evil megalomaniac' and 'anatomically incompatible' on here, then thought, no, if he was willing I could totally work around that. )1. "Agent Scully she was there / Standin’ on her head / Provin’ tae a’ the boys an’ girls / Her hair is really red." - alas, the contributions by the Making Light commenters aren't really up to their usual standard. This is not the first time I have been tempted to write up a "Scansion for the completely deaf idiot" guide. (The Master could help with the rhythm!) It's not that hard, folks.
2. I want to get good enough at sketching to do sketch-notes. I have a couple of pre-photography "sketch your vacation" how-to guides, I just haven't *read* them yet.
Also, I really, really want to get to a Worldcon. Because, Worldcon. Anybody up for a roadtrip to Quebec next summer?...
3. The first thing that's going on my new wishlist once Librarything gets collections!!! will be The Book of Lies. Well, no, the first-first thing will be The Book of the Damned. *Then* The Book of Lies. Also, why have I never attempted automatic writing? This seems like the sort of thing I would have tried. Maybe ten-years-ago me and I can work on that, too.
4. At some point, I swear, I will make it to a library that has full Merry's Museum archives on microfilm and write up Algebra for fandom_wank. Algebra *needs* to be on fandom_wank.
5. By the way, I'm totally going to be working on that psi-fi space opera thingy again for NaNo this year. Because I want to write it, dammit, and I've never really stopped thinking about it since two years ago. So, yeah. Space opera, dammit! Novel-ish-thing!
6. So, a part of me wants to say that a modern fandom history needs to be hypertext web-2.0 with hyperlinks and community authorship and stuff. Another part of me, though, really likes reading long memoirs and historical recreations. I think there really is a need for history-qua-history - a wiki is never going to be more than primary sources once removed; I want my story told with analysis and correlation and storycraft and blatant personal bias; good old dead-white-guy methods, yo!

JF: I NEEDS MY ICONS BACK! NAO!!!
I'm tempted to just *pay* again - I only have about a month left at this point - but if they're in too much disarray to either, 1) fix the problem, or, 2) reply to my support post to say they won't fix the problem soon, then I don't trust the payment to fix it quickly either.
I spent today cleaning house for a lady who had lived there for 41 years - the house was in a first suburb, her husband was a WWII vet, and it was fascinating. (And very, very in need of cleaning.) I came home with a Jackie Kennedy-era little black dress that's in great condition and fits me perfectly (and $15-an-hour pay, which was also nice...) so that's a win.
I have webspace again! The images on this journal work now! Now - AS SOON AS I GET MY ICONS BACK - I can start uploading stuff again!
And okay, okay, I went ahead and did that Free Rice vocab thingy
, since I was only being bombarded by it from *all sides*. FYI, insanely competitive RL friends, I got up to fifty about three times but I never broke fifty (...and never dropped below 44), and by the time I got up to level 49 several times it became apparent that their word lists at that level don't have that many words on them and I was guessing based as much on their question-picking algorithm as on the English language, and they have some definitions on there that are - not very right. And I donated about 4,000 grains and I'm not going back because that thing *eats time*, which I knew, which is why I didn't try it before now. ^_^
