brilligspoons: (steve/tony)
I'm exhausted from having to be a fully-functional employee who does what she's supposed to do and have had to email two too many VPs/AVPs about Things I've Been Neglecting, so HEY, a meme! Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] pocky_slash, who stole it from someone else, who stole it from tumblr:

Let's play this game where you guess my favourite tropes and fictional character types.

Taking up residence underneath my desk, brb.
brilligspoons: (tea time with reid)
Blegh. What a world.

Meme time!

How this works: Comment with your favorite color and I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better. Update your journal with the answers to the questions. Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

[livejournal.com profile] lilithnaamah gave me these!

1. What are two things on your bucket list?

I have skydiving on there for some reason. Also, I'd like to visit all of the states I haven't already. I've been to 19 (+1 for D.C., so 20, I guess) so far. Maybe next time I own a car I'll do some road trips.

2. What were your favorite books you've read in the past year?

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, Etiquette & Espionage, and Timeless. The Weird Sisters was okay, too. I didn't read that much last year, unfortunately, and a lot of what I did read wasn't that great. /shrug

3. If you could quit your job tomorrow and not worry about money, what would you do?

At first I would just sleep a lot, and then I'd move on to reading everything I've been meaning to for the last few years. Once I got bored with that, I'd probably start traveling as much as I could and spend a lot of time in places with beaches and tropical weather and fruity alcoholic drinks. Also I'd play more video games. And maybe write more.

4. You're so into the various comic fandoms nowadays. I can only sit back and watch with curiosity, and no understanding. What's your favorite fandom now and why?

Oh god, there are so MANY fandoms I'm involved with at the moment, I don't even know where to begin. I'm only nominally in comics fandom right now for reasons (one of which being certain people who drive me up a fucking wall, but whatever), and most of the others I'm in are TV- or movie-based. I guess my favorite fandom is Teen Wolf? Like, the show is a hot mess 98% of the time, and I really question whether all of us are actually watching the same material, but there's been some amazing fannish output in the last six months. Also I just really love werewolves.

(I've been reading a lot of Hobbit fic lately, though. It's movie fever, I can't help it.)

5. In case of the zombie apocalypse, what are your must have supplies?

Generators. Tall barbed wire fences. Canned and dried foods and bottled water. Books. Guns and bullets and machetes (and maybe an axe or two).

I'm very, very tired, friends. Also procrastinating/bored, so here's a meme that I'm stealing from people on my friends list:

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's Parker ...she likes money and cereal." Then post this in your own journal [only if you feel inclined]. In return, ask me anything you'd like to know about me and I'll give you an answer.


Tell me things! Ask me questions! Help me avoid working on all of my projects and thinking about how tired I am!
brilligspoons: (nut cracker!)
Day One of our No Bosses Adventure Week, and I am BORED OUT OF MY SKULL. Granted, that's mostly because I can't concentrate on anything so I'm purposely putting off all the projects I should be working on, buuuuuut whatever. It's my LJ and I'll complain if I want to!

Let's do a meme, friends. Leave a comment telling me to write something out by hand (a poem, a grocery list, a couple sentences from a favorite fic or something I'm writing - whatever you want), and I'll respond with a picture of said handwritten thing. Ready, and GO GO GO.

I have a terrible mental block right now. Like, I've gone through most of my in progress docs and done some editing here and there on the BBMUs to make sure all the pieces connect properly, but I cannot for the life of me add anything new without wanting to burn the whole thing. :\ I'm hoping that maybe doing some drabbles/commentfics will help? So let's bring this back for a couple hours:

Comment with a character or pairing and a brief prompt. I'll give you a few sentences in response.

:D?
brilligspoons: (cuddlebot needs love)
An explanation of sorts. )

I have one episode of Hawaii Five-O season 1 left. Kind of scared to watch it, BUT. I'll do that tonight and let you guys know if I die or not. The last few episodes have made me clutch my heart all the way through - just. CHIN HO KELLY, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING. KONO, YOU ARE INSANELY BADASS (and also you are Steve Junior and adorable and I love you). DANNY AND RACHEL AND GRACE. STEVE IN SEAL-MODE MAKING A BATTERING RAM IN THE FOREST AND HOLDING IT STEADY WHILE HE TAKES A CALL FROM DANNY.

lskefnlsknfslknf CAN'T. In fact, I can't so much that I bought the DVDs for myself. They, uh, showed up yesterday. \o/ WHAT EVEN IS THIS SHOW, YOU GUYS. :D :D :D :D :D

Okay, so. In honor of Valentine's Day, let's do a commentfic/meme of sorts. Comment with a pairing, and I will write you a few sentences of fic about their ~romantic excursion. Go go go!
brilligspoons: (coffeecoffeecoffee)
So neither boss is in today, which means that I will probably be halfheartedly poking at all the emails I have to answer and data I need to collect while trying to write words of some kind. I don't think my brain can handle much more than that, honestly. The last few days have been...rough. :\

Anyway, Imma steal a meme from [livejournal.com profile] pocky_slash. Play along if you like, and if you happen to post this in your own journals, I'll try to write you some stuff, too. :D?

The Five-Minute Warning: A multi-fandom fic challenge

Rules:

1. Clear your schedule for five minutes. (or longer, if you have time).
3. Then look under the cut tag, where you will find ten prompts, all of which are song titles (selected at random from my iPod).
4. Choose one of the prompts, and - using any appropriate fandom/character[s] (meaning ones you know I enjoy) - write.
5. Reply with your teeny weeny story in the comments to this post.
6. Repost this in your journal and make your friends write for you!

Why We Tell Stories

I
Because we used to have leaves
and on damp days
our muscles feel a tug,
painful now, from when roots
pulled us into the ground

and because our children believe
they can fly, an instinct retained
from when the bones in our arms
were shaped like zithers and broke
neatly under their feathers

and because before we had lungs
we knew how far it was to the bottom
as we floated open-eyed
like painted scarves through the scenery
of dreams, and because we awakened

and learned to speak

2
We sat by the fire in our caves,
and because we were poor, we made up a tale
about a treasure mountain
that would open only for us

and because we were always defeated,
we invented impossible riddles
only we could solve,
monsters only we could kill,
women who could love no one else
and because we had survived
sisters and brothers, daughters and sons,
we discovered bones that rose
from the dark earth and sang
as white birds in the trees

3
Because the story of our life
becomes our life

Because each of us tells
the same story
but tells it differently

and none of us tells it
the same way twice

Because grandmothers looking like spiders
want to enchant the children
and grandfathers need to convince us
what happened happened because of them

and though we listen only
haphazardly, with one ear,
we will begin our story
with the word and

SO BORED RIGHT NOW. I even just answered the email I've been putting off for days, that's how awful everything is. UGH. So I'm stealing a meme from [livejournal.com profile] pocky_slash:

Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

who is the big spoon/little spoon
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
who uses all the hot water in the morning
what they order from take out
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
who does most of the cleaning
what has a season pass in their DVR
who controls the netflix queue
who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working
who steals the blankets
who leaves their stuff around
who remembers to buy the milk
who remembers anniversaries
brilligspoons: (the scream)
I am kind of antsy, in that the prospect of sitting at my desk for the next 2.5 hours is absolutely awful and why can't I just run around the building screaming at the top of my lungs right now? So I need to focus. Am stealing [livejournal.com profile] pocky_slash's commentfic meme from yesterday:

Comment with a character or pairing and a brief prompt. I'll give you a few sentences in response.

GO GO GO.
brilligspoons: (black cat)
It's Halloween! Let's do a little trick or treating, shall we? Comment here (as many times as you like) with "Trick or Treat!" and a request (for a picture, or a drabble, or something!) or a prompt or whatever, and I'll either respond with whatever that is (treat!), or I'll give you something entirely different of my choosing (trick!).

:DDD

Scary Things and Me. )

How are things, friends? Everyone hanging in there?
brilligspoons: (i loved you first)
Meme again, because everyone's doing it! This is very exciting for me as I'd never had a WIP folder before a month or two ago. \O/

I will post the names of all the files in my WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. Choose one (1), and I will post a random line or two. (Note: some of the docs in my WIP folder don't have anything in them yet, but I'm hoping that this will make me get those started.)

Okay, I'll play along.

Give me a fandom and I'll tell you:
+Favourite female and male character
+Favourite scene
+Favourite ship
+Unpopular opinion

Have at it, friends. :D

The problem with LJ/DW: We all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So, I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Then post this in your LJ/DW and find out what people don't know about you.


Resurrecting this one 'cause I'm bored and can't concentrate on this work shit. Go on, ask me anything. :D
