Yet another 2-hour delay this morning. I'm really over the winter months and weather, friends. In other news, there's no one in the office today, so I've amused myself this afternoon by writing crackfic for [livejournal.com profile] paper_tzipporah.

An email from [livejournal.com profile] paper_tzipporah:
I always think of Richard Armitage as R. Armitage in my head, but, you know, it sounds like RAWRmitage, and [this tshirt]

I feel like I should apologize for my brain, or something

please write me fic where Rarmitage is a dinosaur and gets cuddles.

...so I did.

Paris needed a new coat of paint anyway. )

I mean. At least I wrote something.

Work had a 2-hour delayed opening this morning, which is not what I was hoping would happen. I mean. I made it in safely and all that, but my bed was SUPER WARM and SUPER COMFORTABLE this morning, and it's snowing REALLY HARD still. :\ :\ :\

I continue to be exhausted and am also running low on patience and good will. This week has been especially stressful because of the mouse that invaded our apartment. Like, I tend to think of myself as mostly able to deal with various household pests (uh, by virtue of not having my dad around to make them go away anymore), but I've lost my shit so many time in the last few days, it's ridiculous. I hate it, the end.

But there have been some positives, too.

+I claimed a mix for [livejournal.com profile] bigbang_mixup, and it's excellent. I think I have the bare bones of an idea for what I want to write, so now it's just a matter of typing up some thoughts and making sure my mixer is cool with everything.

+Doug talked me into buying a blu-ray player. Well. The conversation basically went:

Me: I pre-ordered The Hobbit!
Doug: On blu-ray, right?
Me: No, I don't have a player.
Doug: You should get one of those.
Me: ...I do have that Amazon gift card.

And so on and so forth. The one I bought connects to our wireless, too, so we can watch Netflix in the living room now. :D

+Richard Armitage, Andy Serkis, and James Nesbitt answered fan questions on Twitter on Wednesday. Just. *flail* Adorable!

+I managed to complete and post a story on Sunday. \o/ It was a Hobbit RPF kink meme fill, and I'm debating whether or not to de-anon. Not like I haven't posted RPF before, etc.

+Three more weeks until vacation. I can totally do this.

In conclusion, kitty snuggles:

So last night I was complaining about how there just isn't enough kissing fic in my life - like, as much as I don't understand the appeal of makeouts in real life, I just want all of my favorite characters to kiss each other a lot? Which I feel is a totally just and righteous demand to make. Look, makeouts seem like nice things in theory, so there should be more examples of it.

Whatever, I just want there to be a lot of kissing and I don't care what fandom it's in, shut up.

Anyway, [livejournal.com profile] paper_tzipporah promised me commentfic if I prompted this on LJ. I think this will benefit everyone in the long run, so if you feel like joining in, you totally should. Look, I even wrote Hawaii Five-0 OT4 makeouts last night. Maybe I will write more this afternoon. Who knows.

:D?

Last night a group of us went out to Border Cafe for dinner (om nom nom), and it was good times all around! Except for the fake parrot that spent all night judging me, but that's another story. I pretty much passed out right when I got home (I was REALLY tired, okay, and the two glasses of sangria I drank before/during dinner only made that worse) and woke up sometime around midnight, and of course I couldn't fall back asleep after that. Woohoo.

Buuuut I ended up reading Young Avengers: Children's Crusade, which was an A++ life choice for sure. I'd recently read the initial YA run and some of the tie-ins with other titles and come away from them feeling all warm and fuzzy inside, but Crusade sort of...tipped my feelings over the edge. :D?

Fic desire involving a minor spoiler for the end of Children's Crusade )

*ahem*

Today is a No Boss day, so I'm hoping to get some writing done. We'll see if that actually works out. >.>

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Somewhere along the line, I don't know where, I developed an anon meme addiction. I was only peripherally aware of their existence before last month, but apparently they're now something I check a couple times a week (only two memes, I feel I should clarify that point). I know that it's an unhealthy attachment, and there have been plenty of moments where I wanted to reach through my computer screen and strangle an annoying anon. That being said, I've also read some comments and gone OH GOOD I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS THIS, etc. As with all things in life, anon memes are a mixed bag.

I suspect that my fascination with them stems from being, for the most part, out of touch with fandom opinions at large. I've spent about half my life in fandom, yes, but I so rarely interact with people outside my friends list (and many of you aren't even in my current fandoms right now, so) that I have NO IDEA what's going on most of the time. Anon memes are chock full of opinions and wank and scandal that I wouldn't have heard about until five years down the road! Plus I am not-so-secretly desperate for gossip. I like to know things! Of course, knowing things would be a lot more useful if I actually knew 99% of the people these anons are gossiping about. I don't recognize most usernames on LJ or AO3 unless I'm friends with the person, so I'm always like MAN THIS WANK IS FASCINATING but who -? (My memory is a terrible thing, friends. I remember obscure facts about The Silmarillion, which I haven't read since high school, but god forbid I be able to tell you who wrote the super amazing awesome fic I read last night.)

Anyway, all this to say I have a problem. Haven't quite reached the comment tracking point, but I don't doubt that I'll hit that in the very near future.

Uh, besides anon memes and furiously trying to finish my big bangs, I haven't been all that enamored with fandom. Like, it's a serious shift in my life that I am currently more concerned with writing than I am with reading every fic I can get my hands on. That...is probably more to do with me being dissatisfied with what my fandoms are offering at the moment than anything else. Basically a lot of people are writing things that make them happy, and that is an awesome, good thing, but personally I am not interested in any of it. SHRUG. I'll just be over here, crying over how no one is writing the stories I want to read.

And that's enough rambling. Back to work, I guess.

O h m y g o d AVENGERS TRAILER.

I'd really like to go frame by frame with this one, because that is the level of invested I am in this thing, but my brain doesn't want to function beyond a lot of keysmashing and squeeing. Congratulations! You've been spared. BUT FEEL FREE TO COMMENT WITH YOUR OWN FLAILING, OKAY? I AM ALL FOR THAT.

Uh. I have a lot of feels about things I wasn't expecting to have feels about, you know? Like fucking Stark Tower, of all things, what even. More expected are my feelings WRT to Tony Stark in general, as well as that bit where it's Thor, Tony, and Cap standing together in the woods. And NATASHA, can I please have a goddamn Black Widow movie already? I even have thoughts about Loki and the snake-like machine thing at the end (we can has myth shout-out? :D?), which is super weird for me and I'm going to blame tumblr for that one.

*FLAIL* *FLAIL* *FLAIL*

Can't believe it's not May 4th yet. >:(

GUYS THREE TRAILERS AND CLINT HAS YET TO SAY A WORD.
brilligspoons: (that just happened)
Can I...can I just talk about Steve McGarrett for a few minutes? Is that okay? It better be, because OH MY FUCKING GOD.

I just watched the North Korea episode, so, uh, spoilers if you haven't watched it yet. )

I hope you all realize that when I started watching this show, I had zero intention of being this flaily, and not just in relation to Steve. I didn't even like him that much for the first half of season one, for christ's sake. SO WHATEVER, HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY, WORLD.
brilligspoons: (keysmash)
Watched the first eight episodes of Hawaii Five-0 yesterday. >:( Why is it so addictive. >:( Why is Kono so fucking badass. >:( Why are Danny and Steve fucking adorable and all surly and banter-y. >:( Why do I want to watch an entire show about Chin riding around Hawaii on a motorcycle now. >:( Why am I such a sucker for shows with delightful team dynamics. >:( >:( >:(

Ugh, whatever. I need fic recs, friends who are in this fandom. Please point me to where the good stuff lives. >:(

SO, GUYS. HOW 'BOUT THAT AVENGERS TRAILER LAST NIGHT? HUH? HUH? HOW GREAT WAS THAT? I TOTALLY DIDN'T WATCH IT FIFTY TIMES THEN RIP THE VIDEO AND PUT IT ONTO MY IPOD SO I COULD WATCH IT ALL DAY TODAY. NOPE. NOT THIS GIRL. I'M IN CONTROL OF MY BASER URGES. INCLUDING THE TONY STARK-RELATED ONES. YUP. NOTHING TO SEE HERE.

Julia, Andrew, and I already have a plan to see the movie. I'll be down in Jersey that weekend because the 5th is Isabella's first communion, so we're going to make Cathy babysit the kids when I get in on the 4th (she's on a cruise right now and can't protest, and the family rule is you cruise, you lose, suckas).

SQUEEEEEEEEEE AVENGERS. \o/

Speaking of movies, I saw some this weekend.

I'd only heard about Chronicle early last week, actually, and I think I made the right choice, seeing it on Saturday. The story was your basic we-got-superpowers-now-what plot, but I liked the script, and the movie was shot in an interesting way. I liked the three main characters a lot, and the whole last bit kept me on the edge of my seat. Very well done overall, I'd say, though not totally groundbreaking. I do recommend seeing it if you're into so inclined, though.

One for the Money wasn't super great, but it was enjoyable, mindless entertainment. Mostly it succeeded in making me really homesick for Jersey. And because my only exposure to the story was the bandom adaptation, I kept expecting Gerard Way and Frank Iero to pop up, so. /shrug Anyway, it was fine and funny in parts, so it wasn't a hardship to watch.

Should probably do some work today. >.> Happy Monday, all!

GUYS. Basically all my feelings are about THIS FANART (sfw) today. I just. I can't. I DON'T ACTUALLY KNOW HOW TO EXPRESS MY ADORATION FOR IT WITHOUT BREAKING DOWN INTO KEYSMASHES AND INCOMPREHENSIBLE NOISES. I was THISCLOSE to curling up underneath my desk and rocking back and forth when [livejournal.com profile] pocky_slash came into work this morning, I kid you not. Just. AWKWARD TURTLE FLAILING.

Sorry for, y'know, spewing that all over you.

OR AM I? )

In conclusion, a;lkndm;lmdlskefnlasmnd. GO TELL THAT ARTIST HOW AMAZING IT IS, OKAY?

EDIT: In case you want to tell the artist how awesome it is on LJ, it was linked here earlier as well.
