1. Unpopular opinions meme!

Name a fandom I participate in/have participated in and I'll list my three most unpopular opinions about it.

2. I have a bunch of icons to talk about from that meme that was floating around, let me know if you want me to pick some of yours.

Icons! )

I am not procrastinating, I am taking breaks. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

A couple of recent topics from [community profile] fannish5 (with some spoilers for the relevant fandoms):

Five (canon) couples that seemingly came out of nowhere

Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place; The Vampire Diaries; The O.C.; Veronica Mars; Buffy the Vampire Slayer )

Who are your five favourite female characters of colour?

Battlestar Galactica, Wizards of Waverly Place, Andromeda, Greek, The Office )

I have progress! On an actual fic! You guys, I love the holidays.

[ profile] apocabigbang

10811 / 10000

I am *finally* writing Justin/Alex again! Which, considering the last thing I wrote for them was for last year's [ profile] apocabigbang, is kind of fitting. (But bizarre, like, what was I doing for a whole year?)

Under normal circumstances, this thing would have been done already, except that I was up to, like, what was supposed to be the final climactic scene, and then I was like, wait, what if this wasn't the end? What if it was just the beginning, and actual ~stuff happened after this and it was less boring? Which - I actually realised, made it a much better fic, like, less boring=better, who knew? (And also much more big bang-like, since it's gone from being a basic action-adventure type thing that barely broke the word limit to a story with an actual plot and stuff.) Except it also pretty much doubled in size, which means I'm not so nearly done after all. But I'm getting there! (Five scenes to go, I think.) And it's over the minimum word count, at least, so the draft will definitely be ready by February.

I ♥ [ profile] apocabigbang.

(And also [community profile] festivids, which is v. soon. I can't wait!)

I'm still answering question over at that questions meme, which is super fun! Most of it so far is Greek, which is awesome, because I really love talking about Ashleigh and Rebecca and ASHLEIGH and forever OT3s. But I will talk about other stuff also if you ask me!

My offer @ [ profile] helpbrazil2011 | My offer @ [ profile] qldfloodauction

I'm offering the same thing for both: At least 3000 words of fic, with a starting bid of $5. (Bidding at [ profile] qldfloodauction is currently up to $15.) I've offered to write in the following fandoms:

Better Off Ted, Covert Affairs, Diplomatic Immunity, Disney RPF, Doom, Gilmore Girls, Greek, The Guild, Hawaii Five-0, JONAS, Legend of the Seeker, Make It or Break It, Miss Match, The O.C., The Office, The Office RPF, Princess Protection Program, She's The Man, Snow White: A Tale of Terror, Sonny With a Chance, Tin Man, Valentine, Veronica Mars, and Wizards of Waverly Place.

I'm offering at least 3000 words of fic, with a minimum bid of $5. Het, femslash, or gen, AUs and crossovers are fine. You guys pretty much know what I can write, but here are some details anyway, and I'd be happy to answer any questions.

Dear festividder,

I am so, so excited about this, I can't even tell you - someone making a vid just for me? In a small fandom that I love? Count me in! I hope there's something in my requests that works for you - I tried to be as open as possible with my requests, while still hopefully giving you something to work with and some idea about what I like best about those fandoms. But, seriously, anything you make will be cherished and adored and rewatched until my computer breaks down, there is seriously no pressure here, just vid something you're excited by and I am sure to love it!

I don't really have any fandom-specific notes to add that weren't in my requests, but in general: I like all kinds of vids, from fun, happy vids to fast, action-y vids to dense, thinky vids, and everything in between. My musical tastes are pretty eclectic, and I love it when a song choice surprises me - as long as it fits the vid, I'll love pretty much anything. I do have a vid recs tag, if that's something you're at all interested in.

And for anybody who's curious about what I asked for:

Vid requests under the cut )

Oh, and yes, I am more than okay with receiving treats!
amathela: ([greek] zbz)
Meme-ish things, part two! [ profile] iladora asked for five fictional characters I wish were my IRL friends:

Ashleigh Howard, Greek. We would borrow each other's clothes and plan fun college parties and watch 80's rom-coms together, it would be awesome. If I could be friends with any fictional character in the universe, it would be Ashleigh.

Kelly Kapoor, The Office. Okay, honestly, I'm not sure I could stand full-time Kelly, but - Ryan does it? And he's only gone a little bit insane? Plus, she is super fantastic, we could go shopping and paint our nails and watch crappy girly movies and be super excited about BASICALLY ANYTHING THAT IS AWESOME, and she's essentially Mindy Kaling on crack through a sitcom filter, so what's not to love about that?

Ted Mosby, How I Met Your Mother. Oh, Ted! I love him, and I don't even care if he pronounces encyclopedia like a tool. I would let him show me architecture and be pretentious and I would listen super patiently to all his many and varied romantic woes and I would fix him up with all my cool single girlfriends even though it would inevitably end in disaster because one day he might just make it work, and we would dress up and go to really boring parties AND THEN WE WOULD WATCH SOME FIGHTING ROBOTS, COME ON, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO BE FRIENDS WITH TED MOSBY TOO.

Eli Wallace, Stargate Universe. I blame this entirely on a dream I once had where we were friends and bad stuff was happening and then he cuddled me and I felt better, but whatever, he looks like he'd be awesome at cuddling. And that's my entire reasoning. Sometimes you just need a friend who gives good hugs.

Cara Mason, Legend Of The Seeker. I'm - not really sure how this one would work? At least the others live in what is more or less the real world, but whatever - regular Cara, or modern AU!Cara, or whatever, I think she would be an awesome friend, fierce and snarky and loyal and excellent in bed. If you earned it. And nobody can eye roll like Cara, don't even true to argue.

[ profile] corleones asked for my top five literary OTPs, and ... honestly, I'm not sure I have a lot of literary OTPs. Which, considering how much I love shipping, honestly surprised me. Um, I really love Knightley/Emma? But other than that, IDK, I'm sorry I couldn't answer your question!

[ profile] jengrrrl gave me these icons to talk about:

Tell a thousand words )

ALSO, I HAVE BEEN WATCHING MAKE IT OR BREAK IT ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ YOU CAN PROBABLY EXPECT A POST ABOUT THAT SOMETIME SOON. (I know I promised a proper update, but - it's possible I lied?)
amathela: ([life] partners)
... I actually wrote enough last month to do one of these. Which has not happened since January, oops. I wrote four fics in four different fandoms, and almost all of them were new to me (except Greek, in which I'd only written a drabble); about 18,000 words all up.

It's Not Like The Greeks Invented The Marathon (Evan/Casey - PG-13 - 5604 words) The ZBZs are forced to team up with Kappa Tau for an upcoming Greek event. Nobody is particularly happy about it. (Well, except Cappie, maybe.)

Might As Well Make It Bleed (Marshall/Mary - NC-17 - 1065 words) Marshall tries to talk Mary down. She has other ideas. Spoilers up to episode 2:1 - Gilted Lily.

Interpersonal Hygiene (Charlie/Dani - R - 1862 words) Five times Charlie and Dani showered together (sort of).

The Greatest Adventure In The History Of Basic Cable (Cain/DG - PG-13 - 9080 words) Sometimes adventures have a way of finding themselves.

Also, because I missed doing these, a (sadly) brief roundup of my fics written in February - June:

They Shoot Cylons, Don't They? (The Forgiveness & Stuff Remix) (Lee, Boomer - PG-13 - 885 words) He doesn't expect to see one of the toasters helping them, and he doesn't recognise her; he learned to block out her face, the particular way she smiled, long ago. A remix of Forgiveness by [personal profile] sabaceanbabe. Written for [ profile] bsg_remix. Spoilers up to episode 2:20 - Lay Down Your Burdens (Part Two); slightly AU for season three.

The Déjà Fait Fate Destabilizer (Wendy - PG - 1235 words) Press the button, go back in time, save the world. Easy?

Never Kill A Boy On The First Date (Justin/Alex - PG-13 - 23,208 words) In every generation there is a Chosen One. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of darkness. She is the Slayer. In this case, she's Alex Russo - one girl in all the world born with the strength and skill to hunt the vampires, to stop the spread of their evil, blah blah blah. She also might be kind of falling in love with her brother. But first, she has an apocalypse to avert. Spoilers up to episode 3:5 - Night At The Lazerama.

That's a bit sad, whatever. In other news, I'm back at school, and it's ... okay? I have art this semester, so that's kind of fun. And my schedule does not suck. So, I'll probably actually be able to finish my [community profile] femslash10 assignment, yay. And possibly write other stuff. I'm setting small goals ;)

Guess who got her first semester results today? Or, well, most of them - in a completely unsurprising turn of events, our math lecturer has not fulfilled her basic job requirements and submitted our results, so they're not up yet. But! I did pretty well in my other subjects - surprisingly well in some of them, I must have done better on my final assessments than I expected - so I'm happy. And math can bite me.

(Also, I feel like I can relax a little now that I know I'm doing well - not slack off, but, well, I'd really like not to disappear from fandom for an entire semester again, so.)

ALSO, DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MISSED? WRITING! I have made actual, significant progress on my [ profile] help_haiti fic, and, apparently I am writing Tin Man fic now too? Roughly a metric ton of it so far, including a big dumb space AU (yay!); I have no idea where it came from, but I'm okay with that. Because writing is fun! Somehow I forgot this.

So, I still need to get started on my [community profile] femslash10 assignment, but I'm looking forward to that, so it should be easy enough. Also, I'm trying not to guilt myself too badly about the [ profile] help_haiti fic, even though I do feel terrible about it, because I know if I don't let myself write anything else until it's finished, all that's going to happen is that it's going to sit there mocking me and nothing will get written at all. Right now, instead, I'm using as self-bribery fodder, and that's working pretty well. Sometimes I have to trick myself into getting stuff done, whatever.
amathela: ([disney] you're the new classic)
... and mine is awesome, I can't wait to get started!

Dear [community profile] femslash10 writer:

Thank you so much for writing something just for me! And just so we're clear - anything you write, I will love, so don't stress too much. In particular, though, if you're looking for a little more guidance, I love happy fun times, fluff and crack and various kinds of wacky hijinks, romantic comedy and action/adventure and ridiculous AUs, unresolved (and resolved) sexual tension, and girls who, ultimately, really really like each other.

More information about my requests under the cut )

If you're still not sick of me, you can read more about the fandoms I requested via my tags - Disney, Princess Protection Program, Greek, She's The Man. And remember - this is all totally optional, and seriously, if enjoy what you're writing, I'm sure I will, too!
amathela: ([greek] ashleigh/casey)

Ahem. So. I finished my first semester of grad school! Classes are over, exams are over, placements are over. And now I have a whole month off, which is so ridiculous I can barely even process it right now. In a good way. My time will be my own again! I can barely even remember what that's like.

Anyway, onto Things That Are More Fun (But Are Not News, Some Of Them Happened In April, Whatever, I Have Been Gone For A Really Long Time):

- I finished [ profile] bsg_remix (which I still haven't reposted here, oops!). And I got two awesome remixes in return: Sharon by [personal profile] frolicndetour, and The Marble And The Sculptor by [ profile] olaf47.

- I had to drop out of Remix Redux, sadface. But I still received a remix (which I feel guilty about, but it's awesome, so): Fair Play by [ profile] penknife.

- ... and [ profile] chaos_thon, too.

- But, my [ profile] help_haiti fic is actually coming along! It has a plot and an outline and words and everything! And it's only four and a half months late and counting ...

- And I signed up for [community profile] femslash10, double yay! Because, did I mention I HAVE A WHOLE MONTH OFF? (Although: I did not ask for Tawni/Sonny femslash, even though I really wanted it, because nobody signed up to write Sonny With A Chance. I also did not ask for the WOWP/PPP crossover where Alex has to take care of this princessy chick, ugh! and why is she cute?, even though I really want to read that, too, because half my requests are already about people shaped like Demi and Selena, and I figured that was maybe enough. Probably.)

- I thought I would have more to say here, because of how I've been gone for, like, five months. I actually do have a lot of things I wanted to post, but haven't on account of how they're no longer really relevant. Like, Things That Are Gay: All Disney Shows Ever (aka. WHY TAWNI AND SONNY ARE FOREVER SOUL MATES, IT'S CANON DAMMIT!, AND IF YOU THOUGHT STEVIE WAS REMOTELY STRAIGHT I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT SHOW YOU WERE WATCHING, SERIOUSLY.) And Legend of the Seeker (spoilers: it's over! I'm sad!), and how I watched (and loved!) this season of Doctor Who, but that's over too, and Things That Are Gay, Part Two: I'm actually watching Pretty Little Liars and I kind of love it, even though it's ridiculous. Okay, that one is more current, but whatever.
amathela: ([disney] live to party)
My first term as a grad student is over! Which means I'm officially on holidays - at least for the next week and a half. \0/

So, what did I miss? It feels like I haven't been properly connected to fandom in forever, I've missed you guys. I have a massive backlog of fics, and I'm ridiculously behind on my TV watching - apparently the Greek season finale was on yesterday? I've only seen up to episode 13, so clearly this needs to be fixed ASAP.

In more exciting news, I finished my first ever big bang, yay! I wrote Never Kill A Boy On The First Date (Wizards of Waverly Place, Justin/Alex) for [ profile] apocabigbang, and I got three fantastic pieces of art for it - If The Apocalypse Comes ... (I'm Feeling Pretty Psyched) (fanmix) by [ profile] tortugax, an untitled fanmix by [personal profile] roseclaw, and some amazing graphics by [ profile] dhfreak. I am completely overwhelmed by their collective awesomeness. <3

Now, I have to go look at my to-do list ... which is like a mile and a half long, eek! I know I have gift fics to finish, my [ profile] bsg_remix, and maybe [ profile] chaos_thon, but I'm honestly not sure if I'll be able to finish that in time. And a couple of assessments that are due the first week back, and homework I'm not fully caught up on, and resource folios, and reflections ...

Fic is coming first, I think ;)

I wrote seven fics in November, around 13,000 words, in five fandoms. Three I'd written in before (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Wizards Of Waverly Place, Disney RPF), two I hadn't (Glee, Greek).

Burn, Don't Freeze (Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Buffy/Faith - PG-13 - 100 words) It's easy to keep warm, at first.

All The Better To See You With (Glee - Puck/Quinn - PG - 100 words) It's not like he watches her. Spoilers up to episode 1:8 - Mash-Up.

If I Could Talk I'd Tell You (Glee - Artie/Tina - PG - 100 words) There's a lot she wants to tell him. Spoilers for episode 1:9 - Wheels.

I Want To Hold Your Hand (Greek - Ashleigh/Rebecca - PG - 150 words) It's pretty much the same thing they do every night.

Don't You Forget About Me (Wizards of Waverly Place - Justin/Alex - PG-13 - 7005 words) All Alex wanted to do was to make Justin forget. (In which case, the spell could be called a success, but ... maybe not so much.) In which magic is used without permission, Justin gets amnesia, and Alex is definitely not his girlfriend.

Not-So-Good Titles For Murder Mysteries (Disney RPF - David Henrie/Selena Gomez - PG - 5335 words) In which David Henrie kills Joe Jonas (but not for real, probably).

Paparazzi (Disney RPF - Demi Lovato/Selena Gomez - PG - 467 words) Sometimes, when they're in public, Demi walks in front of her.

It's a lot less than the past couple of months, but I can live with that, especially since most of what I'm writing now isn't due for another few weeks or months, and because at least I finished the couple of major fics I was working on more or less around their deadlines. I'm also planning on taking it easy, a little, since I'm still recovering from that whole hospital thing, and because the last thing I want to do is burn myself out on writing just before my holiday ficathons and big bangs are due.

Goals for December: finish my [ profile] prettylightsfic and [ profile] yuletide fics, get more words my [ profile] apocabigbang fics (including nailing down a plot for the second one, which is kind of giving me a headache), keep working on To Wish Impossible Things. Maybe write some Yuletide Madness, kink meme, and/or prompt fics if I have time for it.
amathela: ([film] centre stage)
Dear [ profile] yuletide author:

Yay, you're writing me a fic! This is a thing I love, and I'm already excited to read it. If you already have an awesome idea you're totally excited to write, feel free to go ahead and do just that - I love every one of these fandoms, so I'm sure to enjoy anything you could possibly write, especially if you love it, too. But in case you're still looking for that perfect idea, these are just a few of the things I love in fic, and in the fandoms I requested, which may give you some idea of what would make me particularly happy.

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas )

If you'd like to read more about stuff I've said about any of these fandoms, you can browse my tags: Wizards Of Waverly Place, Miss Match, Greek, She's The Man. Or just ignore everything, and go with what you feel like writing ;)
amathela: ([greek] zbz)
My Alex the Vampire Slayer [ profile] apocabigbang fic is plotted, yay! It will ... probably end up being significantly longer than the 10,000 word minimum, but that's okay; I still have three months to write it, after all. And I'm totally excited about it, which is awesome. Now if only the Disney RPF fic would come as easily.

In other news, Greek had its mid-season finale last night, and I'm going to miss it so much. But, thoughts on the episode:

And now we have to wait until January for new episodes, which sucks. (Though chances I'll rewatch the series before then are probably high, ngl.)

A month ago, I wasn't sure if Justin/Alex fandom was big enough to sustain an entire kink meme (but screw it, it was an awesome idea).

Since [ profile] omgjustinalex went live, people have left 97 prompts, and written 36 fics. And it's still going on. (This may not seem like a lot, compared to other fandoms, but we're teeny tiny, so I think it's totally impressive.)


I've written seven fics for it so far, and, yeah, more are probably on their way.


[ profile] omgjustinalex

Also, it looks like both Wizards Of Waverly Place and Disney RPF are qualifying fandoms for [ profile] yuletide! Which is awesome; you guys already know I'm totally requesting WOWP fic for that, right?

And speaking of [ profile] yuletide, I'm thinking my other requests will probably be Miss Match (again; I swear I'm going to keep requesting this fandom until somebody ever writes fic for it, you know you want to), Greek (also again), and maybe Centre Stage? Ooh, or She's The Man, yay! Disney RPF is tempting, but I'm thinking about requesting that, even as a wild card fandom, for [ profile] prettylightsfic, so we'll see.
