Okay so after some discussion on 12's post about not letting LJ go gentle into the night, I'm going to make an attempt to be more active here. SO HERE HAVE SOME RANDOM STUFF.
Karmina and Mieko are making the soundtrack of my life right now. Music helps me write so much? I know some authors prefer complete silence, and I do occasionally, but usually I find some song and listen to it over and over until The Thing The Song Inspired is Done. (Yes, I am one of those people that will listen to a song on repeat. It drives my musician sister INSANE. Even if she can only see me hitting 'back' on my iPhone she is like, morally obligated to roll her eyes. LOL)
This Karmina song is so S2 Mary-- the music people on Reign
did an amazing job:
"All the King's Horses"
I made a DW account
so I could play trope bingo, which was great fun and thought provoking. Combing the tvtropes site is a fantastic time waster
, hehe. I'm doing the next round for sure, even if my meta is not particularily ~deep and I had to rush the Katherine/Nadia one to get it in on time. (Flashback to school days! Well I'll settle for a lukewarm B instead of getting an auto fail.
Golden Week has been truly golden here. Blue skies and that perfect balmy weather that is neither too hot nor too cold. So we've been enjoying the backyard and the beer festivals and outdoor play places for kids. (And it's finally raining so here I am on my computer. TYPICAL.)
Grey's Anatomy: BWAHAHAHA. If you weren't aware, they killed off yet another major character before the actor's contract was up. The fandom wank is hilarious and awful, and the finale was at some parts amazing (The callbacks! The music! The passing of torches! The red herrings!) and in many ways bizarre and completely unsatisfying (So Pierce and Alex are friends now but Amelia and Pierce are not? So Amelia was able to not fall off the wagon until her support system came back? So Alex will never in his whole life get proper turkey?) But I have fic coming from waltzmatildah
(Yay! ALSO GO CHECK OUT fandomaid
! My beta offer is still available and there are custom requests and auctions up now!) and will maybe dip my toe into that rather intimidating pool myself.
I write reactionary fic to fandom opinions that piss me off WHAT CAN I SAY.
Also POI: These glimpses of Shaw are just giving me way too much hope. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE FINALE.
We are not getting AoU until July here. *cries* like seriously as if I will not find a decent pirate version before then? JUST TAKE MY MONEY LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD. Also: amber_protocol i want to know your AoU ~thoughts!
