So... my last entry said something about 'semi-hiatus'?

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Ahem. So, yeah, that was an awfully long 'semi-hiatus'... six years. I'm pretty sure I have crammed a ridiculously huge amount of RL into those six years, I feel like a completely different person.

But in some ways, perhaps not so different. Still lovin' the Snape.

Anyway, so I was looking through my 'unfinished' folder and I found a half-completed meme. So... I finished it. The first thing I have finished in over six years. Frankly, it's one of maybe three things I've even started in the past six years.

Anyway, here it is on AO3. If anyone's still here!?

1. Write down the names of 10 characters.

2. Write a fic of fifteen words or less for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. DO NOT read the prompts before you do step 1.

Multiple pairings (mostly slash), weird crossovers, mix of fluffy, dark and smutty, as per the meme prompts - and one of the things I did while I was on hiatus was binge-watch SG1 so there's some of that.

So... not been online much at all recently, I know. I suppose I am on semi-hiatus, really, due to Rl being really very full and difficult and, well, really fun too, but intense...

But I just wanted to ask some opinions. If an online game chat censors (as well as such sentences as 'smash it' and 'and i kept losing') the word 'lesbian', what level of irate should my support email be? Is lesbian not okay now? I mean... wtf.

I seem to be writing a story about slasher!Mary Watson. It keeps making me laugh... but it's not meant to! It's meant to be serious business smokin' hot threesome porn!

Ah well.

... And now I'm thinking the whole thing might be better suited to first person. Oh, I hate it when that happens.

We interrupt your regular programming...

... to get boringly political. Anyone on my flist interested in British politics?

Well, anyway, election buzz is in the air, and in May, we get to vote for one of two parties with two middle-class white male leaders to take over running of the country. Well, actually we can vote for quite a lot of political parties, but basically it's just those two, with Lib Dems coming in a not especially close third. It's depressing.

Cut for an inexplicable ramble on politics. )

I would like to officially announce, in writing, that Stephen Moffat owns my entire heart and soul.

That is all.

Things wot makes me laugh.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Now, I am pretty easy to please when it comes to humour. I like to laugh, and I like silliness quite as much as sophistication. But there is one type of humour that is guaranteed to make me laugh til I pee myself... and that is messing about with language. This includes things like Carry On film style accidental innuendo, SPAG errors like "I helped my uncle jack off a horse"1, such beautiful Engrish as "You are invited to take advantage of the chambermaid", and this:

OHGOD. I have seen it so many times, and still I cannot breathe for laughter.

1. No one would let me proof-read their essays in school for this reason.

[ profile] emzlovesharry did a HP Kill, Marry, Shag meme post the other day. I could play Kill Marry Shag all day! I do not like having to pick someone to kill, but that's kind of the point I suppose.

She gave me Bill, Bellatrix and Colin Creevey.

Marry: has to be Bill, of course. He is cool and sexy and has a fang earring and sexy long hair and boots. I can imagine actually going for him in the real life, which is not true for all of the fictional characters I fancy.

Shag: totally Bella. The thought of Bella being domineering, evil and thoroughly insane in a bondage corset taps into some dark kinks of mine. It helps that I can imagine her as Helena Bonham Carter.

Kill: Sorry Colin! You die in the canon anyway, so... it's alright?

If you wanna play leave a comment!

I don't make a habit of posting pictures, or I would be here all day... however, there is something so utterly beautiful about this one.

Repost: Art, fic, a limerick.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Having the privilege to see one of [ profile] emzlovesharry's many, many delicious fest submissions (She's so prolific! I feel very embarrassed in comparison!) reminded me of a pic I drew a while ago for the Snarry Games free-for-all challenge. Which... I never posted anywhere else, and consequently totally forgot about. Now, this journal is not at all systematic: my tagging system consists of 'fic' for my fic links, 'fanart' for my fanart, 'art' for my non-fan art, and 'meme' for my tragic addiction, but beyond that, you will see a mish-mash of headers, lack of headers, links to various places, oblique references to fics I never finish, and vanishing cut text with too much importance bestowed upon it. However, it is comprehensive: rarely will you find something somewhere else that I have created, that I have not at least linked to... and, after today, rarely will hopefully be never.

REPOST: a ficlet, a limerick, a drawble! )

You don't actually have to look; It's a notebook. Full of delicious angsty political Slytherin-y HP Harry/Lucius, Harry/Draco or possibly even Harry/Narcissa pron... or, as is more likely, some kind of combination of the three. I don't often write on paper, but I bought this one, typed some of it up, and then promptly lost it. I have been meaning to try and rewrite the stuff I lost, but it's so demoralising...

But now I can finally progress again! Woo!

Also, today I joined Holmesslash. I am tres excited, but confused, as I *think* I posted a big ol' introduction post only it doesn't seem to be showing up and I don't know whether I did it right :( And I hate having to have a Yahoo account! One more to add to the throng...

My hands hurt. One cuz of cramp and the other cuz of bashing it into a doorhandle in a fit of what my mum likes to refer to as over-enthusiasm.

HOWEVER, I am jolly happy all the same. Just as I was beginning to think scary words like 'hiatus' (I tend to panic that a creative dry spell* is a a sign of the end times and that I will shortly become an imagination-less zombie), my dormant HP muse stirred into frenzied action.

*Not that it was even a dry spell... sleeping with my Sherlock Holmes audiobooks turned my brain into a mush of Holmes/Watson. Speaking of which... wasn't House EPIC this week?

On an obviously totally unrelated note: WOOO SNARRY-A-THON SOON! Much love.

I've lost weight! A whole... 2kg of it! Somehow!

I blame the patented Crushing Bouts of Social Anxiety DietTM. Don't worry, though, the Crushing Bouts of Social Anxiety DietTM comes with free prizes in the shape of (Eventually) More Confident AnyaTM, Money in the BankTM, and Friends In The Local AreaTM!

Generally, therefore, whilst a gibbering wreck, I am also very happy.

Except for the one sad thing I am going to have to do but am putting off 'til the morning because I am a bad person. :(

Dreamwidth invites.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Two-and-a-half stories written in quite possibly as many days! *dances* Porny porny delicious porn stories! And about four fics on the go that may be finished upon completion of the half-a-story! Though that's often the case with me.

Also, I have had a nice evening at work.

I am a happy bunny indeed!

But this is not the point of this post. The point of this post is: I have received a bunch more Dreamwidth invites. Anyone want one?

Holmes, Watson, oh how I love you...

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Aside from getting to the near-finish of a little H/D Slytherin orgy party story (light-hearted and cracky, not Harry-at-a-Dark-Revel, sorry to disappoint/excite anyone), my days of late have been filled to the brim with Sherlock Holmes.

Cut because apparently I have a lot to say on the matter. )

So, liek, I have a job. It's part time in the co-op, and it's not bad. I feel quite pathetic though; it's exhausting, and they haven't even given me longer than a four hours at a time. I'm also a bit of a nervous wreck; my various neuroses make me constantly worried about doing something wrong and I wind myself up spectacularly about imagined error unless I am given regular explicit praise and reinforcement. I think this is part of only child syndrome (though I am not really one), but then my other problem is over-analysing, so who cares?

Still, I keep having minor breakthroughs: this weeks' lesson is 'get over yourself.' It's a good one. Indeed, I think it should be my slogan for a while.

But anyway... that's what's going on in the land of me! And as soon as I'm settled, I will have ficcy offerings, including my Snarry-A-Thon fic. Indeed, already there are good signs I will be drawn back into fandom: today, for the first time in like, oooh... three weeks? I fancied a good old-fashioned fanfic smut fest. Quite amazingly, a new troll appeared on the horizon, and kindly provided a list of recs! *snicker*

Fandom and RL in peace and harmony...ha!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
The [ profile] snarryldws week one drabbles are up! Plz to be voting! Guess which one is mine and you'll get a cookie.

Oh, and I have already reached my first Snarry-a-thon fest freak-out, which is actually a very good sign. I must have at least three, you see, and the earlier they happen, the more likely I am to have a breakthrough in decent time to actually finish the thing.

Of course, my mother is interfering somewhat by demanding that I learn 3D modelling right this second, because she has dreams of setting up a cottage industry making videogames. An unusual family business, but My Bloke is an indie developer and programming student and Her Bloke is an experienced leet programmer. She says she'll do publicity. What she actually means is she'll be boss.

In this game-production dynamic, as according to them I am the only one with any artistic talent at all (oh dear), am obliged to be the chief game arteeste. I am scared. Especially since this will put me on the wrong side of the programmer/artist divide AND the artist/manager divide... and I'm already on the wrong side of the mother/daughter one. Also, mum has no more than girlfriend-knowledge1 of the areas at hand and will therefore probably be the kind of boss that demands things only achievable by magic.

That said, I can't get any other bloody job, and working on a game development team is a major step in the right direction. So... woo!

Any 3D modellers out there got any tips?

1. Is there a word for that magical second-hand knowledge of your partner's job/hobby, the stuff that makes you appear diverse and interesting at parties?

My plans for a Canon Event are on hiatus, because (disregarding RL for the moment) I have just realised that we have [ profile] snarryldws and the [community profile] snape_potter Snarry-a-thon and I want to do both. And, indeed, am. Woo!

I have also finished one of two things for [ profile] help_haiti and just have to send it off. The other thing is delicious scones, and because I want them to be as fresh as possible, I am just waiting for my lovely winning bidder to say the word.

So, that is me at the moment! Living from fest to fest, it seems.

Oh, speaking of which... I haven't reposted my Yule Balls fic. It was not the first story I wrote for the prompts, but the first story I wrote wanted to be 100k and I know I probably will never finish it in my lifetime, let alone before deadline.

Help Haiti.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Just heard about [ profile] help_haiti and immediately ran off to offer things. No fic, because my brain is feeling fragile and I am not sure how long this state will last, but delicious baked goods of a distinctly local nature and some jewellery. Am thinking about offering knitting too, but my knitting... well... it's rubbish. I am fine wearing it myself but I am not so sure about giving it away.

In any case, guys, check it out. The jewellery is stupid-cheap atm. :)

Semi-Regular Film Review

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Soooooo... Pontypool.

Just rented it off the telly. It's weird to be in a room with three people who are often in accord (well, four, but mum doesn't count because she was drunk and fell asleep), and have three totally different opinions of a film.

I, for the record, loved it, but I don't know if that's going to help you out if you're trying to decide whether to watch it.

It's been... well, a very long time... since I was last scared by something. And I was properly panic-filled and tense in a really great way. And it lost me on the premise for about five minutes, but I waited and wanted it to stay good, and the tension sort of pushed away my failure to suspend disbelief, and I *love* linguistics, so in the end I ended up loving it. And I was delighted by the ending, my favourite kind, the one that doesn't shy away. I also especially love the nearly-zero gore, nearly-zero set changes, people-in-a-room format. I love it, because it scares the crap out of me, and I love people.

This is not very coherent, is it? Ah well. Basically, I loved it. In a personal hits-all-the-magic-buttons way. In a "Hmmm, I think I would get on with the author of this" way. And I want to watch it again right now. But everyone else in my house thinks it's lame, and so Anya is a sadface.

Oh, and Daybreakers: ruthlessly competent but sooooo... average. Bland. Blah. And the script ruined all tension with its lack of ability to assume imagination in its viewers. Quite the opposite of Pontypool, in fact!
