dizmo: A lemur sticking out its ridiculously long tongue. (misc: lemur tongue)
Yeeeeah, I'm definitely going back to crossposting to my LJ from DW consistently... on those occasions I post, which is rare, but I'd like it to be less so. There's a new year's resolution for you. A good chunk of my LJ-flist is doing the same, for reasons that probably don't need rehashing.

Anyway, anyone who's made the DW jump, feel free to circle me up however you'd like. Same username from LJ.

Right! Anyway! As for content! First thing's first! Yuletide!

It's always fun when the fic you receive is in the canon you requested that really, nobody needs any crazy canon knowledge in order to appreciate.

That being said... A bajillion thanks to my author, who wrote me Rest In Whirled Peace. It's Ben & Jerry's anthropomorfic and they're ice cream superheroes. I mean, come on, how can you not want to read that?

After I finished reading that... a couple times... I proceeded to show just how obsessed I was and read absolutely every fic with one Agent Phil Coulson of SHIELD in the Yuletide archive. (And then I did it again the next day with Madness.) And believe me, they're all delightful, whether or not my favorite NINJA BAMF IN A SUIT is a main character or not, so please, by all means, read them and enjoy if you remotely care.

There are, of course, numerous other fics that bear reading, but I really really suck at rec lists, and most of them have been covered in other places if you're looking for recs, so far be it from me to tread on old ground.

And now, changing trajectory slightly...

Sheer morbid curiosity had me do something in a fit of temporary what-was-I-thinking-ness last night. And I happened to actually find something hiding in the mists of the internet that I thought didn't exist anymore. That being what I'm pretty sure is my oldest surviving piece of (published) fanfic. It's X-Files, it was written when I was nineteen or so... give or take a year (we're talking so old I found it on an angelfire archive). The prose is ever so slightly purple. (Ahah. Yeah. Ever so slightly.) And I kinda wanna facepalm at my younger self for the thing, if not so badly as some of the ridiculous Mary Sues I safely paper-journaled about a few years before that. And I have a conundrum. Should I post it to the AO3, with a roughly appropriate backdate? I mean, for the interests of completeness, and to see how far I've come... but, again, facepalm. But I wouldn't want to orphan it either.

Hm. Maybe with appropriate tags to let someone know what they'd be getting into.

I'll contemplate further!

And in a brief interlude covering RL... Still sadly jobless... although it being my first Christmas season out of retail since, like, '03 or so? Let's just say it was a bit surreal being home on Black Friday.

But Christmas was marvelous. Got a Kindle Fire from Andrew and it is a ridiculously fun gadget. I'll definitely be using it as a tablet more than an ereader, though. (I've got my nook for that... Had a Sony Reader, but I broke it, oops, thank God for squaretrade... But I got reimbursed and went for a new model. Thing is LOADED with fanfic now, I love it.) But man, Angry Birds is so much nicer on that screen than my phone's. >_> He also got the LotR extended edition on bluray for my whole family, to go with the huge TV we got earlier this month. :) In addition, as I commented on twitter on the day, I really appreciate socks and underwear as gifts so much more now than I did as a kid.

Also, the presents I gave were pretty much universally well-received, which always makes me extremely gratified. I love picking out the perfect present. Although the individual that expressed the most joy was, of course, my dog, who got a squeaky toy and went into transports of delight. Good times.

Anyway, wow, I think I've just said more than I've said in ages combined, so I'll leave it at that! TTFN!

Buuut... A Sailor Senshi Maker!.

I blame [livejournal.com profile] mithen and her amazing Sailor Bat. That's all I have to say.

Sailor Krypton! )

Okay, that's that. Going to bed. Really. Honestly.

Well, I managed to add a few sentences (and delete a comma) on a fic I've got that's been stalled for... a while. It's like pulling teeth, I swear, but I at least feel somewhat accomplished for getting that much done.

It probably doesn't help that this sucker isn't really like anything I've ever written before. It's like... An AU that... isn't an AU? Or... a non-AU that is an AU? ... I'm not even sure.

Right, basically, it's DCU movieverse fic written as if I lived in the verse. Like... Writing RPF about superheroes (because I totally would, duh).

And I have oodles of ideas for later in the fic, which is awesome, but I HAVE TO GET THERE FIRST, because I really really suck at writing nonsequentially. And I have to remember what I can actually feasibly know about these guys... while still being close enough to the characters to make them recognizable.

It's fun when I manage to get things actually done, but the doing is... it's slogtastic.

That's not even a word, I don't really care.

BUT WOO, I really do feel accomplished for getting that little bit done in the first place. I really do need to keep it up. Silly writing and its silliness.

Right, first real post in ages, and it's not even really all that interesting. XD

Oh well, carry on with your normal lives!

Okay, so.

To the handful of people who friended me after [livejournal.com profile] rhombal's Epic Bandom Prank of Epic Win, with which I was minorly involved, ummm....



Little primer. I'm Erin. I'm 27, live in Vegas, work in a bookstore, and am, as I referred to it as [livejournal.com profile] nottheprankster, in the Kuiper Belt of bandom. Meaning basically... I can actually distinguish most of the members in a core group of the bands involved, have caught myself singing along to the occasional song, and have read a fic or two. Oh. And wrote a sonnet. XD

I really don't post much. And what I do tends to be... Random and silly. But you're welcome to it!!!

Other interests include popslash (my first love!), Chicago sports (GO CUBS!), and most of the Discovery Channel family of programming (DUDE. MYTHBUSTERS. EXPLOSIONS. THAT IS ALL.).

That being said. Hi! Nice to have new friends! Whee!

While I'm still fresh from the movie, and mulling it over, I will offer my reactions.

But first. Entered the theater way late because I was waiting in line for the 12:15 showing for a while after they already LET my 11:59 one in. So seats were amazing crap. Right down in front and ALL THE WAY TO THE LEFT. But.

Hahah. While I was waiting in the wrong line, IN MY COSTUME, (which, there was nobody else in costume IN line, that I saw. But there were quite a few in the theater, so I felt less freakish)... A pair of teenage girls came up to me. They wanted to know if one of them could take a picture of me with her friend. XD I did. So if I randomly show up on a random myspace with a caption like 'LOOK AT THE TREMENDOUS GEEK HAHAHA', I would not be surprised. XD

After I figured OUT I was in the wrong line, and went to enter the theater, some guy saw me and totally air-wand Expelliarmus-ed at me.. I promptly pulled out my non-air-wand from my wand-pocket. He actually freaked out and clung to his friend. I died laughing.


Spoilery. Maybe. Kinda. )

June 6. Barricade Day, per Les Mis. Therefore, for the third year in a row, I have... MADE A BARRICAKE.

It's the BEST BARRICAKE YET, too. It has a sekkrit ingredient.

Anyway, pictures here and here...

And then...


dizmo: (nsync: chris say cheese)
So. Finally home from Disney World. Plane delays are awesome.

Will do a lovely detailed vacation rundown. With pictures! At some point.

But for now... here's a preview, because it must be shared.

Quite possibly the coolest thing that has happened to be in almost EVER. )

That is all. Thank you.
dizmo: (joey - sweet)
... Before I leave for Jackson. Which is before I leave TOMORROW for... AAAAAAAAH DISNEY WORLD!!!!!!!!!!

Ummmmmmmmm. Okay. What do I have to say.


This is so belated. But. They're up! As ALWAYS, the one of mine that got remixed ended up like eighty times better in the remixing. SO GO READ IT..

As for the one I wrote... I like it, although I was a little bit worried about it, because it seemed... I dunno. Kinda... Actually, if I state my main objection to it, it really kinda gives it away, which I don't want to do. BUT. I've gotten more than ONE piece of feedback. And positive feedback at that, so it seems that my recipient enjoys it, which is good, and even if she was just being polite (XD), a couple other people who WEREN'T obligated replied too. So hah. Or something.

That being said, I'll not be around, I don't think, for the reveals. BUT I promise to properly thank my author when I get back (next Thursday), and also reply to feedback at that point in time. Bwee.

Um... Anything else, anything else... I dunno.

I doubt it.

Spohali, I'm gonna send you a going away e-mail because I'm lame like that. Keep an eye out.


Of course the beauty of our timing here is that I'm going to be missing practically EVERY SEASON FINALE EVER. (Except House. Thank God the AI finale is gonna be pushing that back, because I had a conundrum as to whether to tape it or DWTS. That was just CRUEL.)

SO. I have SPN and both DWTS eps set to tape. Barring any catastrophe, I should be able to watch them. The odds of my managing to avoid spoilers when I get back are kinda slim, but c'est la vie.

Oh. But I WILL be voting for Joey from my cell. In Disney World. On the Pacific Time voting schedule. Because my area code. Yes. BUT I WON'T BE ABLE TO VOTE ONLINE.






Ha. *mass of tags*

I have new computer!

Named Critter.

For... uhhh... no apparent reason?

*snicker softly*

*does a dance*
dizmo: (joey - nice hat!)
Chilling for a bit in the computer lab before heading home. New computer arrives tomorrow, according to UPS, but up until TODAY, they said it was arriving today, so we'll see.

But that is so not the point of this post.

I went to go cruise by espn.com to see if I could get any interesting Cubs info.

And saw the following.


... Now, the second I saw the title of that first link, I started laughing so hard. It was great.

And now, I'm putting 'Download Armagedd'nsync' near the top of the list of stuff to do when new comp arrives.

I wonder how long it will take me to fill up a 160 gig hard drive with mp3s...
