HAPPY NEW YEAR! I had a great New Year's Eve, which consisted of staying home with my boyfriend, watching monster movies, and playing drinking game bingo. Fun! We watched Pacific Rim, Starship Troopers, Dragon Wars: D-War, and Jurassic Park, and it was EXCELLENT.

It's also time for the requisite year in review stuff, so, a meme, courtesy of pretty much everyone on my friends list:

my thread here


Also: Ask me my top 5 [whatever] of 2013 (on tumblr or here, whatever). Because I'm procrastinating and it seems fun!

Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] slowmercury, I hope you had a great day :D

My own birthday extended birthday weekend ended up being pretty awesome; we went on a winery tour and to the zoo and I ended up getting a fancy coffee maker after all that makes super delicious lattes, plus I brought home way too much wine and cider with me, so it's all good.
amathela: ([hsm] ridiculous teen pop stars)
Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] the_antichris!

So, that AO3 meme going around:

Sorted by hit count )

Sorted by kudos )

So. Avengers, am I right? And yuletide - I'm not surprised that seven out of my ten highest-kudos fics were yuletide fics, since I tend to hang out in small fandoms year-round, so obviously yuletide is going to provide a decent forum for that. (The only small fandom fic not written for yuletide on that list is Wizards of Waverly Place, which, also not surprising.) What was surprising was Team Building 101 - I had no idea it was that popular, but it makes me super happy. Also No Heroics, since Doom is a downright nonexistent fandom outside of yuletide.

On the other hand, I think the list sorted by hit count is probably more representative of my general body of work (it's a lot of Wizards of Waverly Place and Disney RPF, which, yeah). And there are a few fics that show up on both lists, though I think the second list is more heavily populated by fics I posted directly to AO3 when I wrote them, rather than crossposting long after the fact (which is the case with most of my fics); I don't know if that makes much of a difference, but it seems like maybe a little? And if I had to make a top ten list of my own favourite fics, it's probably look a bit like a hybrid of both lists, with a few other/older fics thrown in, so I guess that's not bad.

One last interesting thing: If you sort by comment threads instead, most of the same fics still pop up, but The Déjà Fait Fate Destabilizer (The Middleman, Ensemble) gets in at number six, so I guess Middleman fans just really like talking about it? Small fandoms represent!

Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] torigates! I hope you have a fantastic day :D

So apparently Manu Bennett was promoted to series regular for season two of Arrow? Which, apart from being exciting news in itself, MAYBE MEANS MORE CHANCE OF SEEING ROSE EVENTUALLY?????????? I LIVE IN HOPE.

And a meme that's been floating around:

How many (and which) ships have you shipped from the time you started watching a show until the show ended and you still continue to ship? Two rules:

1. Must be a show you watched at least part of as it was airing on tv (because catching up on a show in three weeks is different from watching it live over a span of years).
Or have been watching it for a good amount of time, whatever, I can't necessarily remember what shows I actually saw live and what I didn't after a few years, THIS MEME IS NOT THE BOSS OF ME.

2. The show has to be over with (i.e. no current airing shows count because you don't know which ships crash and burn or get together in the last few episodes and that might affect your shipping).

This was ... actually fewer than I expected? But still a lot, because I watch a lot of television.

Justin/Alex (Wizards of Waverly Place), Helo/Athena (Battlestar Galactica), John/Teyla (Stargate Atlantis), John/Aeryn (Farscape), Ted/Veronica (Better Off Ted), Michael/Lindsay (Arrested Development), Richard/Kahlan/Cara (Legend of the Seeker), Buffy/Faith (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Lamb/Veronica (Veronica Mars), Peter/Claire (Heroes), Clark/Lois (Smallville), Nathan/Haley (One Tree Hill), Beck/Jade (Victorious), Sasha/Payson (Make It or Break It), Ryan/Kelly (The Office) ... probably others I'm forgetting, whatever.

Some of those I still care about more than others; others, obviously, weren't right from the beginning of the show, but I think "from the time the characters were introduced" counts. And Ryan/Kelly only very nearly qualifies, but whatever, the show is almost over and they're only going to be on one more episode, I very much doubt whatever happens then will make me stop shipping it when several seasons of barely there-ness and the characters generally being kind of terrible people didn't. (And sadly I couldn't include Ryan/Taylor, because I only started shipping them in season four like everybody else with a soul, but I still ship them a lot, so they're there in spirit.)
amathela: ([comics] ravager)
SO THE RAVAGERS WAS CANCELLED, UGH. And, I mean, it's not like I'm saying that was a great comic? BUT ROSE WAS IN IT AND IT WAS CALLED THE RAVAGERS AND WHERE AM I GOING TO GET ROSE NOW????? DAMN IT, DC. YOU ARE THE WORST.

Anyway, onto talking about tiny pretty pictures. [livejournal.com profile] empressearwig, [livejournal.com profile] catteo, and [livejournal.com profile] crackers4jenn gave me icons to talk about! If you want me to pick some of yours, let me know.

Welcome, new friends! My flist has been super lively lately and I'm still adjusting, so there were a lot of posts in the past few days I didn't get around to commenting on. But I'm super glad to have met so many new people, so, in that spirit:

Fandom Tennis Match Meme!

Okay, here's how this is going to work. You comment with a fandom question. I answer it and then ask you a question that has some thematic relevance to the question you asked me.


amathela: ([comics] titans together)
Which TV shows did you start watching in 2012?
Arrow, The Mindy Project, Terra Nova (!), Teen Wolf (!!!!!), Chicago Fire, Suits, Miranda (<3). I actually watched the first few episodes of Battlestar Galactica (1978), and it was exactly as ridiculous and awesome as I expected it to be. And recently I started watching H2O: Just Add Water, which, ditto ;) In keeping with the comics-heavy theme of this year, I also picked up a lot of animated shows - Justice League, Batman: The Animated Series, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Green Lantern, Teen Titans, Ultimate Spiderman.

The rest of the meme )
amathela: ([btr] slap slap kiss)
Since I wrote pretty much nothing all year (until yuletide, when I wrote ALL THE THINGS), I figured I wouldn't restrict this to just fic, because what would be the point? So, things I made posted in 2012:

FANFICTION
Occupied (Diplomatic Immunity, Ensemble)
Heavily Armoured (DCU, Dick/Steph)
Scavenger Hunting Is Extremely Likely Disastrous (S.H.I.E.L.D) (Avengers, Sif/Darcy)

Advanced Practical Stealth Techniques (or, Things That Weren't In The Course Catalogue) (Princess Protection Program, Carter/Rosie)

VIDS
Ultimate Showdown Of Ultimate Destiny (The Middleman, Ensemble)

FANMIXES
Past = Prologue (Doom, John/Sam)
Love In The Time Of Zombies (Doom, John/Sam)

So, this is going around again? And I've never actually done it, so!

Little boxes made of ticky tacky )

HOW MANY ICONS DO YOU HAVE: 250 on DW / 270 on LJ
OUT OF HOW MANY AVAILABLE ICONS SPACES: See above.
IF YOU COULD BUY SPACE FOR MORE, WOULD YOU: Yes!
DO YOUR ICONS MAKE A STATEMENT: Not really? I have a lot of icons of female characters and very few of only male characters, so I guess they're fairly representative of my general interests.
WHAT FANDOM DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: Disney RPF and Battlestar Galactica
AND THE SECOND MOST: Wizards of Waverly Place
WHAT SHIP DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: Justin/Alex
ARE YOUR ICONS MADE MOSTLY BY OTHER PEOPLE: Yes
DO YOU MAKE ICONS: Only when I really, really need icons.
ARE THEY ANY GOOD: Sometimes they don't suck?
ANIMATED ICONS ARE: Not really my thing.

Snagged from pretty much everybody, here's my fandom year in review!

2011 fandom overview )
amathela: ([comics] young justice)
SO, I HAVEN'T BEEN AROUND A LOT LATELY. I AM SO BEHIND ON EVERYTHING, LET'S TALK ABOUT RANDOM STUFF INSTEAD.

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! )


3. [personal profile] mfirefly10 gave me BSG, SGA, Farscape, and Veronica Mars to talk about my favourite characters )
amathela: ([wf] jaye/mahandra)
Comment with a character and I'll tell you:

* How I feel about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon
* Something about them I consider true, though it's just head canon/fanon
amathela: ([farscape] look at the princess)
Still too busy to post much, but let's have a couple of memes!

#1: Name a couple (or two, or whatever, there ain't no meme police) and I will tell you the exact moment I started shipping them. Or stopped.

#2: If you had to pick one fic of mine that is the one you identify with me, what would it be and why?

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 )
amathela: ([bsg] hardcore superstar)
Let's provide a minor distraction in the form of an awesome meme!

Name a character from one of my fandoms, and I will reply saying:

* How I FEEEEEL about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.

There are A LOT of memes floating around right now, so whatever, let's do this!

Name a fandom that I am familiar with and I will tell you:

My M/F OTP
My M/M OTP
My F/F OTP
My endgame OTP
My original OTP
My crack OTP
My guilty pleasure OTP
My anti-OTP


(I may not actually have that many OTPs pairings for any given fandom, but I'll roll with the parts I can answer.)

Also:

THE ANONYMOUS WRITING FEEDBACK MEME
amathela: ([misc] gold)
Swiped from all over:

Ask me fandom-related questions in the comments. They can be fandom specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general. Questions can be as wacky as you want. Ask me about tv shows, characters, fanfic in general, fandom issues/meta, anything about any of my stories specifically. Whatever you want.
amathela: ([wowp] did you forget)
Random updates:

+ It's been over a year since I started writing Wizards of Waverly Place fic. And - I still probably consider that my current primary fandom, which means this is officially the longest I've ever been continuously involved in/excited about one particular fandom (and, yes, I know it's been ages since I actually posted WOWP fic, but that's because I've been super busy, not because I've lost interest). This is probably not exciting to anyone but me, but whatever.

When I first got into the fandom, I expected my excitement to last a few weeks, tops. Um ... yay?

+ I am working on the fic prompts from my last entry; there's still room for more requests, so if you want to make me write something, you can go over there and leave a prompt :)

+ Also, via [livejournal.com profile] dollsome:

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.
