Yuletide 2014

Oct. 25th, 2014 | 08:53 pm

Dear Writer of the Yuletide,

So, if you're here it means we've matched on a (or possibly more than one) fandom. Yay! It's nice to have you here.

If you're the kind of person who likes to get in the know about their assignment this journal might not be of much help. Feel free to take a peek at my tumblr if you want to learn anything more about me this letter can't give you.

I'm also dm21 at AO3 but again, not really reflective of me. All four of the fics I have uploaded are old and a bit of a ways away from the fandoms I'm in now.

I love all fandoms equally but some prompts come to me more easily than others so don't be intimidated if any requests seem wordier than others.

So, first off, some general stuff

Likes. Dislikes. Etc.Collapse )

So, here goes the good stuff. Fandoms ordered in alphabetical order.

Bates Motel
Characters – Norma Bates, Dylan Massett

The RequestCollapse )

Bonnie and Clyde (1967)
Characters – Bonnie Parker, Clyde Barrow

The RequestCollapse )

Fantasista Doll
Characters - Kiyomasi Komachi, Totori Kagami, Uno Uzume, Uzuki Manai

The RequestCollapse )

Wake Up Girls
Characters - Nanase Yoshino, Shimada Mayu

Witches of East End
Characters – Ingrid Beauchamp, Dash Gardiner

I'm Over the Dome (And Other TV Thoughts)

Sep. 22nd, 2014 | 11:32 pm

Dome dome dome dome dome dome dome dome fuck you.

Feel free to read that opening sentence in whatever beat you feel is appropriate.

You know what I really hate? Shows that introduce a character for a season and then proceed to kill them off by the end of the season. What's the point? It's a waste of my time getting interested in a character and it's a waste of the show's time in developing them. I especially hate it when these characters are women, persons of color, or both.

And I hate it even more when the characters they don't kill are ones that completely deserve to die.

This is why I left Supernatural (among other reasons) and this is why I completely skipped out on the Under the Dome finale. I pray to the networks this show gets canned because I don't want anyone to have to suffer through that crap anymore. Mike Vogel, your face is beautiful. May I find you soon on a better show.

And Junior? Double tap. Double. Freakin. Tap. Sit your ass down and watch Zombieland because those rules aren't just rules for the apocalypse they are rules for life.


But enough about that. Other things were on. Things like Gotham and Sleepy Hollow. And also Madame Secretary last night.

First off. Gotham? I liked it. It was a solid enough pilot, weak in some points and strong in others. There's much room for improvement which is the highest compliment I can give pilots. My favoritest part? Selina freakin Kyle because OF COURSE. This is a tumblr gifset I reblogged. Look at her. Isn't she adorable!?

And also Renee Montoya and the future Mrs. Gordon had a thing together? Sweet YES! Give me a bisexual character in anything and you have my love forever. I mean, as long as you don't try to pull that we don't wanna label things crap. (You were so, so close Arrow! Lucky for you, you earned my love in other ways.)

I'll probably be reblogging other things I like over at my tumblr.

Sleepy Hollow. My mother was confused by the opening. I was kind of able to put things together but I was still left a but confused until they cleared up the no we're still trapped in purgatory thing. They did have me worried a bit that they were going to kill off two major characters without warning but then, yay, they didn't. I mean, can you blame me for getting scared? I've been burned before. Scarred even.

I am a bit bummed I'm gonna have to sweep it off to the side for American Dad but AD was here first and it's only fair.

Madame Secretary was okay. I liked Tea Leoni's character. I think it's worthy of the three episode test and a check in along the way.

Fall TV Schedule

Sep. 20th, 2014 | 04:40 pm
mood: excitedexcited

 Wasn't I going to use this account more? Eh, anyway, here's what I'm watching this fall.

Sunday

Bob's Burgers @ 7:30

It took me a while to hop on the bandwagon of this show but thanks to Adult Swim reruns I am here for the ride. Now that Fox has broken up the animation domination line-up and shuttled American Dad off to TBS, it's the only FOX cartoon I have left to watch. Oh, Family Guy, the bridges you have burned.

Once Upon A Time VS Madame Secretary @ 8

Oh, Once how I wish I could quit you. And I tried. I did try. I was ready to ragequit, throw in the towel, etc. Alas, the only way I think I can ever be free of this show is if it a.) gets cancelled or b.) Lana Parilla leaves the show forever. I don't think any of those will come soon so I guess I'm stuck here.

Madame Secretary premieres tomorrow and I'm going to check it out. I appreciate that they aren't hiding how Hilary-inspired the show is. I mean, Tea Leoni even kinda looks like Hilary, lol. CBS isn't always on top of things when it comes to online streaming so time will tell if I'll be able to keep up with it.

Mulaney @ 9:30

I'll confess that before this show I had no idea who John Mulaney was. I still don't really have an idea but I do know now that he's a stand up comedian and a former SNL writer. The show does seem to invite Seinfeld comparisons which is a tall order to fill but I'd like to give it a chance. And it also stars Martin Short who I love so much thanks to The Cat in the Hat (people looking to cast a new Cat in the Hat movie I beg you to not look too far) so maybe it'll be worth it.

Revenge @ 10

I've committed to ride and die for Revenge until the very end. Last year's cliffhanger was a big game changer and I'm interested to see where we go from here. Having Madeleine Stowe as a narrator is gonna take some getting used to though.

Monday

Gotham @ 8

A Batman TV show without Batman is apparently the TV Show I have been waiting for. Okay, so I guess Batman is sorta there in the shadows, lurking in the dark but he's like a wee baby Bruce Wayne so it doesn't really count.

Sleepy Hollow VS American Dad! @ 9

The premieres of SH and AD! are a month inbetween so it's not a problem now but come the 20th of October I will be off to TBS for the new "edgier" American Dad!, as they're calling it. I wasn't able to quite absorb myself in Sleepy Hollow as much as I'd like so I don't think I'll be missing it that much from my schedule. However, it's definitely a show I'll have to set aside for a marathon at some point.

The Blacklist @ 10

I kind of lost track sometime after the first half of the season because of my then sleeping schedule. I desperately need a catch up marathon which I hope to do soon but I probably won't be able to watch in real time for a while.

Tuesday

Selfie VS Flash @ 8

Why does ABC do this to me? This is the second time they've set up an Emily Kapnek show (Rest in Peace, Suburgatory) against a DC comic book property. Unfortunately, I must make a choice and that choice is for The Flash. Which means, yet again, I will be getting my Kapnek fix through Hulu.

Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. @ 9 (and that's the last time I'm typing out Shield like that)

It's not the strongest show but I was entertained throughout and I think there's a lot of room for improvement here. Also, I ship May/Coulson soooo I'm kinda interested to see if that goes anywhere. Shallow reason is shallow.

Wednesday

Arrow @ 8

The show return I'm most excited for. I'm mostly looking forward to Laurel Lance Action Girl, Daddy Diggle, and Team Arrow shenanigans.

South Park @ 10

Is there really anything left to say about South Park by this point?

Thursday

A to Z @ 9:30

I'm a sucker for a good romantic comedy which this seems to be in the vein of.

How to Get Away With Murder @ 10

I'm pretty much going in blind with this show. All I know is that Viola Davis plays a professor of law, murder is involved because duh, and Dean Thomas has left Hogwarts to study Muggle law. So this should be interesting.

Friday

Cristela @ 8

Female led comedy starring a Mexican American cast? I'm there.

 The word document to the next chapter of Care A Lot High has been open on my desktop for the past hour and at the most I've only written a few sentences. I hate not being able to write anything without thinking about all the time I spent on a chapter that ended up getting eaten by my own stupidity
 
The desire to write is there but I keep getting bogged down by my thoughts.If I had lost those couple thousand words by computer error I think I could have handled it better but the fact that I lost them by my own hand is weighing down on me.
 
I tried writing other stories but I don't have quite the same fire with them as I do CAlHigh at the moment.
 
I don't know what to do because I really want to write this but my brain won't allow me.

No Brain Stop

Dec. 15th, 2013 | 04:12 pm

You do not need another fic idea. You do not need another fic idea. You do not need another fic idea.

You will come up with idea after idea but you will not follow through with any of them. You've had the Care Bear AU idea for well over a year and you've barely even just started that. You've had the idea for that pre-Zombie Island Scooby Doo fic for about just as long and you haven't done anything with that except maybe some plot related stuff. And let's not even mention those three drawerfics you know you'll never write but continue to think about constantly anyway.

So, no brain, this is definitely not the time to come up with a futurekids-fic for Saint Tail. Put that fic idea back where it came from or so help me . . .

Well, my planned Elementary watch didn't go quite as planned. I was hoping to use Saturday to help me get through the episodes but the complications of having a shared computer popped up. I managed to have the computer to myself all day today and I got myself up to episode 21 so I have now reached the episodes of Elementary that I have not seen.

For some spoilerish stuff
Once Upon a TimeCollapse )

Tomorrow's Monday which means I have to endure yet some more school. I'm contemplating talking to my counselor about my senior project. Guess I'll see how I'm feeling then.

Also on Monday will be the newest episode of The Blacklist. I must confess that I have still not watched last Monday's ep. This is because I was accidentally spoiled on the events occurring in the episode and have not been able to bring myself to watch it. I might just jump in with this next episode though I suppose I will have to come back to that episode sooner or later.

Link Collection

Nov. 24th, 2013 | 10:34 am

 Places I will be when not on Dreamwidth

My Tumblr: I make gifs, usually of more obscure kind of stuff but I sometimes gif for my currently airing fandoms. A bit of real life talk slips in here but it's usually brief.

Goodreads: Sometimes a review pops up but I mostly just use this to keep track of what I'm reading. Might not use it as much after I move to:

BookLikes: I'm already planning for this to be a New Years Resolution. I figure a new year would be the best way to handle this and would give me a fresh start on the books front.

MyAnimelist: Meh, should hopefully be self-explanatory.

Should I Post Here More Often?

Nov. 24th, 2013 | 10:02 am

 The answer is: Probably. It'd be nice to have someplace to collect my thoughts since tumblr doesn't provide me with much room for text talk. Let's start by talking about what I've been up to.

The Fannish Stuff

Last month, I started posting gifs of Ice Age to at least a little fanfare. I gif for fun, not notoriety but I admit it's nice when my work gets recognize. There's a very small amount of Ice Age fanpersons on there but most rebloggers have been the casual sort. I wish there were more people to talk about these films with because it really is the franchise of my heart. Small fandoms are fun but lack of communication can bring me down a bit.

Yesterday, I finished watching/reading a walkthrough of the first Hyperdimension Neptunia video game. I also started watching a walkthrough for the second game mk2. I can see why most people would prefer the sequels. The graphics look better (though still wonky for an independent game company), the storyline seems nice, and it looks like the gameplay has been vastly improved. It would seem the anime has taken more inspiration from the sequels than the first which I'm quite glad for. The first game reminds me a bit of the first few eps of the anime: no substance.
I'd love to play these games for myself but alas, I do not have a Playstation console nor have I reached that level of piracy yet. Though it's probably only a matter of time. It started with songs, continued to TV shows, and slowly drifted to movies (though I've scaled back on that things to a little scare this summer) so I assume it would only be a matter of time before downloading games becomes a thing for me. It's a like a gateway drug!

Of my returning shows, Arrow, Revenge, and Once Upon A Time have been great. My enjoyment of Supernatural seems to be fluctuating on a week by week basis. I'm in this more for characters not named Sam and Dean to be honest. I'm especially in love with Abbadon, whose had my heart since her first appearance and has somewhat helped ease the loss from original Demon of my Heart Meg.

Yesterday, I also caught up on Strike the Blood. I'm kinda conflicted on this show. I feel like there's something in my head that's blocking me from fully embracing the show. It is my first experience with ecchi elements so that might be it? But i think the two leads may also have something to do with that. I'll continue watching until it gets too much for me but until then I'll be fully enjoying any screen time with this character specifically.

Well, let's move on to:

Real World Stuff

It's almost halfway through my Senior Year and I fear I'm not quite succeeding as I should be. I haven't even started the paperwork for my Senior Project and I can't stop myself from procrastinating on everything. I feel like I'm watching myself drown and can't do anything about it. Hmm, I wish I was in a better mindset because the only thing really holding myself back is me.

For a bit of TMI: I started my period today and it hurts like hell. Also, I'm hungry as fuck but it hurts too much to move. Well, at least I didn't have to wait 77 days between cycles this time. Though of course, it would come around before Thanksgiving because stuff like this only happens to me before important dates. Well, at least the pain should be gone by them, hopefully.
