btvs - faith - xmas

This is very quick post, really. I am really behind on all the comments and I will get to them within the next few days. Atm, I am chilling out with pizza (I felt too lazy to cook, so I bothered some poor delivery man to bring me food and coke) and tomorrow I am going to attempt to cook ALL THE THINGS and bake ALL THE COOKIES and marathon some christmas movies with Heather. I didn't do Yuletide this year, but a cursory look at the archive reveals some exciting things (SNOWPIERCER FIC! ROSE RED FIC!) so at some point I wanna curl up with that fic as well.

However, since I am way behind on the December Talking Meme, here are three back to back entries for them xD I hope it's a semi-decent read:

December 20th: if the PTB gave you control over one* series/movie/book and let you rewrite one of the RITURZ' fatal flaws - what would you choose/change? for kwritten

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Welcome to the TVD bitterness hour (spoilers up to S5)

ANYWAY. ONWARD WITH THE WORST QUESTION

December 17th: Jean/Scott feelings for rosaxx50

Heh, I feel awkward talking about this because I'm worried I'm going to say something wrong. I have a lot of feels but it's been awhile since I've watched the X-men trilogy (I've been meaning to do a marathon but mostly I've seen Days of Future Past and First Class most recently. And weirdly the second Wolverine film). But in general, I always feel awkward talking about X-Men and the like because I have zero comic book context and I feel like the vast majority of people who talk about it (granted, this is on tumblr) do, so I always feel like I'm wading into conversations I don't understand entirely and should keep my mouth shut. Like my general opinion is that I feel films and comics should be considered separate, stand alone verses, rather than an extension of one another but still, I feel like I'm missing a lot of material.

But that being said, Jean/Scott! I have no X-men icon, so have Pepper; also spoilers for the entire X-men series, up to Days of Future PastCollapse )

December 16th: A story I want to read for summerstorm

This is a tough one. There's obviously a lot of stories I want to read, in general? I have a lot of books on my too read list at the moment (Hero, Slice of Cherry, House of Leaves, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown), and there's also a lot of stories I want there to be WRITTEN so I could read. That's sorta of harder to think about because I am not going to know until it hits me in the face, it's easier for me to think of stories to theoretically write rather than to read. Of the top of my head, I really want more stuff like Slice of Cherry - serial killing codependent woc sisters in a small creepy town. I also want to read more horror novels that legit freak my shit out and make me scared to sleep (it's been so long since I've had this experience) Idk, what do you all want to read? Unfortunately I've had a migraine all day, so I cannot ramble on endlessly.

IN TERMS OF FIC, I just want everyone to write me fic for my OTPs or rarepairs. Or rarepair OTPS :( The main thing I want at the moment is From Dusk Till Dawn Carlos/Santanico fic about their 500 YEAR LOVE STORY, FROM BEGINNING TO END. I would write it, except I'm terrified of it because CAN YOU IMAGINE THE RESEARCH ALONE.

In other news, Heather made me watch the first season of Sons of Anarchy in about three days and I am full of feelings for a show that just ended. I AM 7 YEARS TOO LATE. It's not FAIR. Maybe I'll write up a post about it later but that S1 finale was such a fine hour of television. The final scene alone.

So every year (at least, it feels like every year) I see my flist be filled up with this talking meme for December and I never do it because I'm always swamped at this time of year, so alas, I just give other people topics.

WELL NOW I AM UNEMPLOYED AND OUT OF SCHOOL AND WILL NOT BE PESTERED BY RELATIVES THIS HOLIDAY SEASON so I finally get to give this a shot. Also, it'd be a fun thing to keep me busy and I do missing talking to everyone on LJ. Soooo:





Pick a date in December and give me something to talk about. Give me a question or topic-- absolutely anything fannish goes: TV, movies, books, comics, fandom, ships, fictional characters, actors, writing, arting, whatever strikes your fancy...

Also, feel free to suggest multiple topics/dates or to just leave a topic and no date, I'll fill it in.




I'm starting this at December 15th, just to give myself some extra time and also, that's when I'm officially all alone and won't have much to do. But otherwise, come at me:

December 15th: Tell me about a controversial opinion you have for wheatear
December 16th: A story I want to read for summerstorm
December 17th: Jean/Scott feelings for rosaxx50
December 18th: What draws you to incest ships for streussal
December 19th: Top five FDTD scenes for ever_neutral
December 20th: if the PTB gave you control over one* series/movie/book and let you rewrite one of the RITURZ' fatal flaws - what would you choose/change? for kwritten
December 21st: five stories you want to see written for FDTD for rosaxx50
December 22nd: What do I miss about LJ culture? for lackadaisy
December 23rd: Favourite Disney character(s) and/or song(s)! for wheatear
December 24th: Threesome talk for Heather
December 25th: WHY HALLOWEEN IS BETTER THAN CHRISTMAS for Heather
December 26th: A story I want to write for summerstorm
December 27th: Katherine Pierce for pslasher
December 28th: Give me a pitch for a thing that more people should be in to! (Movie, show, book, fandom, etc.) for lesson_in_love
December 29th: S2 of From Dusk Till Dawn for rosaxx50
December 30th: Fanvids you would make if you were a person who made fanvids, for streussal
December 31st: BRAG ABOUT HEATHER COMING TO VISIT ME FOR HEATHER

So, this is probably a bad time to make a comeback to my flist #after I've ignored livejournal for more than a month. BUT HI EVERYONE. HOW IS YOUR HALLOWEEN GOING? I hope everyone's having fun.

Since it's Halloween, I will probably be spending the night eating pizza, drinking, and watching horror movies. Which is like heaven to me, tbh. It won't stop raining, so I am a little :( over that because that probably means no trick r treaters at all and it's already very late as it is. And we have a shit ton of candy. Welp.

Anyway, it'll take some time to catch up with everyone and I don't think I can do it tonight BUT I DO WANT TO DO A MEME. If anyone wants to participate (if anyone's out there; LJ is kinda dead):

give me a pairing/character, PLUS a halloween-themed/creepy/monster au/anything semi-related prompt in my askbox and i will write a ficlet

Dear low key fic exchange writer, THANK YOU so much for writing for me! This wild card prompt is both a list of other things I’d like in the fandoms requested, other fandoms I’d like fic for, as well as what I’m generally into. This is a bit long, but please don’t get intimidated though! I would be happy and as you can see, I like and love A LOT of things. This is just mainly meant to give you other ideas if my initial prompts didn’t work for you, or inspire you in general if you want other jumping off points.

likes, dislikes and all the promptsCollapse )

1. Job interview went decently, I think? It was my first job interview ever and I was super nervous and oh god there were several questions I was just not prepared for BUT I think they liked me? I am being overly optimistic, probably, but they were very friendly to me and I got a tour of the facilities. I don't actually think I got it because I'm super inexperienced (I mean, it's entry level, the requirements are literally just a B.A. for the most part) but I feel okay about it? Idk. Weird feelings.

2. Today I decided to learn to cook more because I am adult and college graduate and should be able to feed myself more than pasta from a box, cereal, and ramen, so I made pancakes for dinner, because that's how I roll. I ended up fucking up the first batch because I was making oatmeal cranberry pancakes and somehow, mixed up nutmeg for turmeric. I made turmeric pancakes because I misread the bottle that badly. I don't even know how that happened.

My dad, bless his heart, ate all of the turmeric batch and said he liked it, so okay, that was nice of him. On the plus side, my chocolate chip oatmeal pancakes were straight up awesome.

3.



My friend Marta is doing a low key fic exchange. Everyone on my flist should sign up, because I need more people in my smaller fandoms to sign up. GO SIGN UP, YOU CAN PROMPT ANYTHING, IT'S MULTIFANDOM AND THE RULES ARE REALLY FLEXIBLE (I have not signed up yet but hopefully tonight, I will).

4. Since I am trying to make a triumphant return to LJ, I am stealing this meme and hopefully we can all bond over LJ #weeps about the decline of LJ:

The HOW THE FUCK DID WE BECOME FRIENDS? meme.

We can basically all reminisce and flail about everyone's awesomeness. #feels

Title: sorry about the blood in your mouth (I wish it was mine)
Fandom: From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series
Ship: Seth/Richie
Rating: NC-17, for graphic violence and sex.
Disclaimer: I own nothing.
Word Count: 23K.
Spoilers: Up to Pandemonium, but mainly AU from Place of Dead Roads. Things unfold differently, let’s just say.
Summary: Richie is a vampire now but that doesn’t mean things have to change, right? (or so Seth tells himself)
Warnings: Violence, gore, bloodplay, references to child abuse, references to underage incest.
Notes: Title and cut tag taken from Richard Siken’s little beast. I started writing this way back after I saw the second episode and finished around the time Pandemonium aired, while I edited and beta'd for the rest of the season. Therefore, this doesn't entirely line up factually with canon, which is probably a big deal only to me, and more of an alternative take on events. Lots and lots of thanks goes to opheliahyde, who is more than just the beta for this fic but my partner, I could not have finished this without her input, her enabling and her hand-holding through sleepless nights, and did everything to make sure this was in tiptop shape. All errors in the fic are mine. Also on Ao3.

but more frequently I was finding myself sleepless, and he was running out of lullabiesCollapse )

I am officially a college graduate. I am now an alumni, and jobless. Go me.

I don't know how I feel right now but it's weird. I AM HAPPY YET SCARED OF LIFE but I am taking a month to just not do anything, tbh, so I am not worrying.

I will probably make a more substantial post later when I am not so tired, but I am also gonna be around more :D (until I get a job, probably)

BUT I HAVE GRADUATED COLLEGE (WITH HONORS. I THINK I DESERVE BRAGGING RIGHTS)

Also everyone should go check out From Dusk Till Dawn, because it's legit my new favorite show.

Also LJ's new layout is SO FUGLY I WANNA CRY, I was going to post fic soon and now it's just going to be ugly on my LJ, UGH.

So I am two weeks late with fic rec friday? Two weeks late. Mainly because of school and assignments, so I wanted this fic rec friday to be somewhat lasting, in case I have to disappear again. So you get five fics, all Allison Argent centric. I've been sitting on this for awhile--I think the Teen Wolf finale made me want to compile something like this, and everyone else is welcome to drop Allison fic recs in the comments, because I actually have a pretty hard time finding Allison centric stuff in fandom. Let me know, I'm sure some of you are sitting on stuff I haven't read yet <3

Like Smoke Across Fire by [personal profile] escritoireazul
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Characters/Pairing: Allison-centric, Allison/Erica
Rating: Teen
Summary: Allison's world is a world of women and wolves.

My comments: Short comment but this is literally everything I wanted right after S2. It's a perfect continuation--Allison grieving her mother and her fucked up headspace after that, full of grief and regret, and I love the writer for addressing the problems and issues in the Allison/Lydia friendship, as well as giving them time to mend. The Allison/Erica stuff is just scorching and self-destructive and I dig it a lot. Go read.

Excerpt: Erica drags her chair closer – too close – until her legs press against Allison’s, and the heat from her body makes Allison’s skin prickle. “Chemical reactions,” she murmurs, too low for anyone else to hear. “Mix and spark. Sometimes they fizzle out.” Warm breath against her neck, and when the hell did she get that close? “Sometimes they burn.”

It’s so wrong – werewolf hunter and werewolf, and she really loves Scott, even after everything – but for a second, all she wants to do is grab Erica and burn.

four more under the cut; also spoilers for Teen Wolf S3BCollapse )

+ So I let fanfic friday/weekend slip up. IN MY DEFENSE I'VE BEEN SICK AND OVERLOADED WITH HOMEWORK. Even during spring break :| I will make up for it this weekend, I promise, I have ~plans~

+ I have yet to watch The Veronica Mars movie. This makes me very sad because my entire flist that's active is excited about it. Fuck you, school and fuck you movie theater that only shows it in a city an hour away.

+ They made From Dusk Till Dawn a television show AND NO ONE TOLD ME ABOUT IT. I'm so excited, this is literally my shit, omg. Brb watching the pilot.

+ I was literally up all night and didn't get to bed until 7 am working on a project, until to wake up a few hours later to go to school. YET I AM RLY HYPER? It might be the coffee but I am so hyper. So I am putting up a meme, mainly because I miss my flist and Imma catch up on it tomorrow but I miss LJ and talking to people. SO MEME. Stolen from redbrunja:

Please ask me questions about my OTPs in the comments! Any questions! All questions! Deep questions! Silly questions! Ship questions. (It doesn't even really have to be OTPs. Basically, anything you know I have ever shipped. And maybe even anything I haven't. And, let's be serious, I could talk about certain adorable dorks for freaking ever, so let me do that. Okay? Okay.)


I like talking about shipping, basically.

these bloody days have broken our hearts by cassiehayes
Fandom: The Vampire Diaries
Characters/Pairing: Caroline/Elena
Rating:: PG-13
Summary: They kill Klaus, but at a cost. Caroline tries to help Elena through her transition.
Warnings: Character death, blood/mild gore, blood drinking, consent issues around transitioning, themes of death.
My comments: One thing I always wanted was Caroline mentoring Elena in how to be a vampire. Another thing I always wanted was for Elena to turn right after in S2. SO THAT MAKES THIS EVERYTHING I WANT. I love the Caroline/Elena friendship here, and how it's not perfect, neither of them are perfect friends but it's focused on JUST them, no Salvatores, and I deeply cherish just reading them rely on each other and Caroline being a caretaker, and slightly selfish in not letting Elena die like she'd want to. I adored how Elena legitimately struggles with being a vampire, nearly eating innocent people, and struggling with her grief as well; there is such a melancholy, sad and somewhat dark tone to this whole story--this is a victory where Klaus dies but it doesn't feel like a victory, too hard-earned--and it makes the fic almost bittersweet but with an edge of hope. Caroline and Elena are really tender and gentle here, and also INTENSE. It gets intense and hot in the best way. This fic is a gift, tbh, and really underrated and I super recommend it.

Excerpt:[Spoiler (click to open)]Caroline pulls Elena to safety when all is clear, rests her friend’s head in her lap, and when Elena next opens her eyes she is in transition.

Jeremy is with them, standing above and shaking, and he thrusts his wrist at Elena.

“No—” she starts to choke in horrified realisation. “No.”

And Jeremy grabs her shoulder, says “Elena-” and Caroline wraps her fingers around his wrist and presses it against Elena’s mouth and says “Yes.”

Elena breathes heavy, a long shudder rippling through her, and shakes her head. “No—n—just—just let me—”

Die.

And Caroline could. Caroline could pull Jeremy away and say, let her go, Caroline could finally grant Elena this. She feels so small in her lap, unbearably light, and there are still tearstains marring her cheeks. She smells like salt and blood and grief.


Caroline could grant Elena this, but instead she says “No,” and holds Elena in place as Jeremy presses his wrist to her mouth with more insistence and Elena shudders again and she cannot help it. Her head snaps forward when she buries her teeth in her brother’s wrist and even as she drinks desperate with hunger, they can both hear how she is still sobbing.

Doorway (1576 words) by sanidine
Fandom: Pacific Rim
Characters/Pairing: Raleigh-centric
Rating:: Teen
Summary: The medical doctors tell you it's probably PTSD. Newt and Hermann run a battery of increasingly bizarre tests and don't find anything conclusive.
My comments: This was CREEPY AS HELL. So much that I don't really want to tell you very much about the story because you should experience it for yourself, but I highly recommend it, because the author is really good at creating a creepy, mounting sense of dread with very little words. It's in second person POV, which is an issue for some people, but it definitely works here to create a creepy, intimate type of vibe. The author says she was inspired by a Stephen King story, so that should tell you a good deal of what to expect.

Excerpt:

[Spoiler (click to open)]When you say that on air it's a joke, but you itch, just a little bit, all the time. First just on your skin, but then- Deeper?

Nothing more than a minor annoyance, really, it's not like you're breaking out in hives. The handlers bring you some Benadryl. It does nothing for the itching, but you do doze off in the middle of a New Zealand morning show. You make a startled noise when Mako nudges you awake. Someone autotunes it and the video goes viral overnight. This is your life now.

Newt calls out of the blue one day. He says that he had to steal a cell phone because him and Hermann have been in totally super secret government lockdown. Building a Pons drift system out of trash put them on a lot of radars, who knew, not to mention the whole drifting-with-the-Kaiju-hivemind thing. He is, he tells you, kind of a big deal now and has been trying to talk the government guys into letting him pose shirtless on the cover of Rolling Stone oh and by the way, could you get the press people to call Rolling Stone?

There's a lot of scuffling, then. Hermann comes on the line with Newt loud and brassed off in the background. He tells you to ignore Newton. Hermann was the one that stole the phone and he wants to know if you're alright. They haven't been allowed access to outside media and have missed most of the press tour. How is it going? Where are you? Have you been feeling well recently?

Are you sick?
