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.

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 )

I cannot believe my holidays are almost over, I have done literally almost nothing. Why do I always use my break to sign up for ficathons I know I'm not going to get finished early?

ANYWAY, THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING WITH MY BREAK.

1. REWATCHING ONE TREE HILL, WHAT IS EVEN MY LIFE? STILL LIKE CHRIS KELLER. STILL WANT TO MARRY DANNEEL. I cannot be the only person on the internet who loves her and couldn't care less about her husband, right?

2. Rewatching Farscape (currently on hiatus after S1, see above). Still awesome. Still love everyone.

3. Reading comics, Emma Frost is the best thing in my life.

3a. Watching X-Men: First Class, having my heart broken at how not awesome Emma was. Otherwise pretty cool; Mystique is consistently my favourite thing about the movieverse.

4. Watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two, v. brief super shallow nonspoilery reaction )

5. READING AWESOME YA LIT, WHICH IS WHAT I REALLY WANT TO TALK ABOUT IN THIS POST.

5a. HEX HALL. Seriously, if you're in the mood for a YA book that isn't all angst and depressingness and dystopias all the time, read this book. It is super fun! Plus, the main couple is actually friends first, it is really great, plus REALLY FANTASTIC (if disappointingly infrequent) MAKEOUTS, I AM SERIOUS ABOUT THIS. AND SHE HAS AN ACTUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HER FEMALE BFF, WHO IS GAY AND LOVES PINK, and I don't know what the general consensus is on Elodie but I loved her. There is also a sequel, Demonglass, and the third book is coming out in March. But don't wait until then, come read it now!

5b. DIVERGENT ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥. Okay, so this one actually is YA dystopia (it's very Hunger Games), but I'd still recommend giving it a shot even if you're sick of those, because I LOVED IT AND I NEED PEOPLE TO COME TALK ABOUT IT WITH ME. FOUR!!!! SERIOUSLY HE IS SO AMAZING, AND SO IS TRIS (WHO IS THE MAIN CHARACTER), AND I SHIP THEM LIKE CRAZY, AND BASICALLY IT IS SUPER AMAZING GO READ IT RIGHT NOW.

6. Updating my userpics, I FINALLY HAVE PARKS AND REC AND HAPPY ENDINGS AND GAME OF THRONES ICONS. Speaking of Game of Thrones, I may have to make a separate post about that later, this is already pretty long.

Alternate universe picspam and fanmix, for the Fandom Manifesto challenge at [livejournal.com profile] fandomverse.

One (Totally Valid) Reason You Should Watch One Tree Hill: Because sometimes, characters fall asleep and dream they're in awesomely cracky AUs. Sometimes they're time-and-place AUs where they're all gangsters in the 1940's (not pictured), and sometimes they're "what if" AUs - for example, what if Dan had married Karen instead of Deb; Lucas was a rich, entitled asshole; Nathan was the bastard spawn; and Haley was his BFF? It's called Lifetime Piling Up, and it's totally canon.

I've been wanting to make an AU-verse Nathan/Haley mix for a while (adorable BFFs!), so that's under the cut, as is a general episode picspam.


Don't say I never gave you anything )

amathela: ([oth] brooke/haley)
Ack, why can I not write? I'm trying to finish my [livejournal.com profile] spook_me David/Selena fic, and I love the premise, like, a lot, but actually getting it down is like pulling teeth. Yesterday I wrote 200 words! This was an improvement over the last four days. God, why is it hard?

Far more awesomely: [livejournal.com profile] prettylightsfic is running again this year! Besides [livejournal.com profile] yuletide, it looks like this may be the only holiday fic exchange I participate in this year (unless something new and awesome suddenly pops up - I would not say no to something Disney-themed, or even Glee), so I'm very excited. The poll to gauge interest in fandoms is up now, so if you have any interest in a multifandom RPF exchange, you should totally consider signing up, and go vote! And, I'm just saying - if you really love me (and are genuinely interested in participating), and wanted to suggest Disney RPF as a write-in fandom? I would totally not be opposed to that.

Since I have no new fic to offer (I'm still working on those meme prompt fics, I swear), have some episode reactions:

Glee )

One Tree Hill )

The last episode of Greek wasn't my favourite, but Ashleigh is adorable. As always. I'm kind of loving Eastwick (even though I'm not fully caught up yet), which I only really started watching because I love Jaime Ray Newman and Rebecca Romijn, but it's awesomely cracky and kind of enchanting. And I'm watching Flash Forward, mostly at [livejournal.com profile] talumin's behest, but the only things I really care about are a) Janis, b) John Cho, and c) WHAT WAS UP WITH THE RANDOM FREAKING WALLABY? Um.

ETA: Haha, this window has been open so long that I managed to watch The Plan before I finished posting! Thinky thoughts to come, possibly?
amathela: ([film] clueless)
Fic writing was kind of sparse in August, but I did get one thing written:


Kinda Gay (One Tree Hill - Brooke/Peyton - PG-13 - 1103 words) How Brooke Davis learns that gay isn't a four-letter word (unless Bevin is spelling it).


I blame the dearth of real fic-related accomplishments partly on my absence in the first part of the month, and partly on doing other things - working on fanmixes, mostly, but also putting together some vid recs (that I should be posting soon) and starting an original fic project, which is way fun. And hunting down new and interesting forms of entertainment - Andromeda, which I'm not ashamed of (it's cheesy awesome, and I love Rommie), and Wizards Of Waverly Place, which I kind of am. (But only kind of. Or not really. Whatever, I own my guilty pleasures.)

I also went bowling with my sister (belatedly) for her birthday, which was a lot of fun, and have officially booked a trip to New Zealand in January to see my mum, which should be awesome; the last time I saw her was in November, and I feel guilty about that. If only she weren't an international flight away. And if only I could actually afford to fly internationally.

Anyway, more fic should (hopefully) be forthcoming this month, and I'm planning on hosting another round of [livejournal.com profile] remixthedrabble soon, before the holiday ficathon period gets well and truly underway. I usually sign up for one fandom-specific ficathon in addition to Yuletide and Pretty Lights - last year it was Merlin, the year before it was SGA - and honestly, right now I have no idea what that might be. Possibly Star Trek - [livejournal.com profile] ladies1st is totally relevant to my interests - but I wouldn't mind doing something a little ... smaller fandom-related. Anyway, I look forward to being surprised :)

I'm actually very happy with my fic output this month - seven fics, and around 19,000 words, plus a whole bunch more that I'll hopefully get around to posting soon. I added one new fandom (Merlin), rediscovered an old fandom (Veronica Mars ♥), and wrote stuff in a couple of others (One Tree Hill, One Tree Hill RPF, Farscape RPF).


Summer In The City (Merlin - Arthur/Morgana - PG - 3173 words) In which there is a summer festival, Morgana indulges in a spot of matchmaking, and she and Arthur fight. A lot. Spoilers up to episode 1:8 - The Beginning Of The End.


This Cat Is A Landmine (One Tree Hill - Whitey - PG - 1513 words) Whitey gets a kitten. The Ravens find out. Hijinks ensue.


Nice To Meet You Anyway (Veronica Mars - Casey/Veronica - PG-13 - 2462 words) Trust doesn't come that easily. Spoilers up to episode 1:9 - Drinking The Kool-Aid.

Picking Winners (Veronica Mars - Lamb/Veronica - NC-17 - 2576 words) Who wanted to be indoors studying when the alternative was spending an hour or two watching the fine men of the Balboa County Fire Department? Spoilers up to episode 2:13 - Ain't No Magic Mountain High Enough.

Try This Trick And Spin It (Veronica Mars - Lamb/Veronica - NC-17 - 3077 words) "Veronica Mars is smarter than me." Spoilers up to episode 3:12 - There's Got To Be A Morning After Pill.


Are You Gonna Be My Girl (Farscape RPF - Ben Browder/Claudia Black - R - 3500 words) It's a good thing, he thinks, that John is supposed to be in love with Aeryn, or people might start asking questions. (aka. Five outfits Ben and Claudia wear, in varying degrees of ridiculousness.)

Method Acting (Decipher Reflections From Reality) (One Tree Hill RPF - James Lafferty/Bethany Joy Galeotti - PG - 2694 words) Her life is measured out in almosts. (She almost took a risk, once, but it was only fiction.) Five times fiction and reality were almost the same thing.

I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] purimgifts again this year, and I just got my assignment, which is awesome. After finishing a bunch of long fics all in a row, I think a low pressure fic gift basket is exactly what I need.

(And yes, for those waiting, I am working on the birthday fics I promised. I've just been a little distracted, oops.)

In case you're my [livejournal.com profile] purimgifts author, hello! I've written up a little bit about the fandoms I asked for and my favourite (Jewish and/or female) characters; in any of these fandoms, I'd love anything, of course, but this is just in case you're looking for a bit of extra direction :)

In general, I love fun stories; I'm not so much with the angst, but go for it if it's your thing. I love het and femslash as well as gen, and I really love female characters. Humour, crack, fluff, AU, banter, UST - I'll love pretty much anything, so just write whatever's fun for you!

More about my requests )

TV is back on! I haven't actually started watching it yet, but there's a new Legend of the Seeker I'm very excited about. And BSG comes back in a few days ...

All my holiday exchange fics have been finished and posted:

Summer In The City (Merlin - Arthur/Morgana - PG - 3173 words) In which there is a summer festival, Morgana indulges in a spot of matchmaking, and she and Arthur fight. A lot. Spoilers up to episode 1:8 - The Beginning Of The End. Written for [livejournal.com profile] breakingbeads for [livejournal.com profile] merlin_santa.

Are You Gonna Be My Girl (Farscape RPF - Ben Browder/Claudia Black - R - 3500 words) It's a good thing, he thinks, that John is supposed to be in love with Aeryn, or people might start asking questions. (aka. Five outfits Ben and Claudia wear, in varying degrees of ridiculousness.) Written for [livejournal.com profile] sugargroupie for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide.

Method Acting (Decipher Reflections From Reality) (One Tree Hill RPF - James Lafferty/Bethany Joy Galeotti - PG - 2694 words) Her life is measured out in almosts. (She almost took a risk, once, but it was only fiction.) Five times fiction and reality were almost the same thing. Written for [livejournal.com profile] sugargroupie for [livejournal.com profile] prettylightsfic.

So, yes, I ended up writing for the same person for Yuletide and Pretty Lights. And I could have written Ben/Claudia for both exchanges, but the Pretty Lights assignment came pretty much as I was just starting to rewatch One Tree Hill, so I decided to go for a little diversity instead. The Pretty Lights story ended up not being quite what I intended (it was supposed to be flirty and happy and fluffy, which it ended up being ... not so much), but I'm pretty happy with the way all my exchange fics turned out. And I'm very happy with what I received in return, so it was an excellent holiday ficathon season.

Even more exciting, apparently I've started writing Veronica Mars fic again:

Nice To Meet You Anyway (Veronica Mars - Casey/Veronica - PG-13 - 2462 words) Trust doesn't come that easily. Spoilers up to episode 1:9 - Drinking The Kool-Aid.

General Veronica Mars fic + fandom ramblings )

So I'm feeling very happily and productively fannish at the moment. Not to mention a couple of other fics I should be writing in Weeds and Skins, because I may be a lot of things, but lacking in new fandoms I am not. (OMG Tony/Effy! [livejournal.com profile] falseeeyelashes, I blame you and your epic OTP picspam.)

So, I'm really not sure when I'm going to have time to get around to actually watching television, but I feel like I'm okay with that.

Two fics posted in December, which is not the same as the number of fics I wrote (a few exchange fics, plus one I didn't get around to typing up yet).


One Tree Hill

Finding Out True Love Is Blind (One Tree Hill - Nathan/Brooke/Haley - R - 2571 words) It happens in the girls' locker room, of all places, and all Haley can think is that she's suddenly become a cliché. Spoilers up to mid-season three.


Stargate SG-1

Ask Me No Secrets And I'll Tell You No Lies (Sam/Vala - NC-17 - 2724 words) Vala isn't easy to figure out, but Sam's a quick learner. (Or, four times Sam and Vala were nearly caught, and one time they weren't.)

Thing: I saw High School Musical 3! And it was awesome. And, okay, the theatre was mostly filled with giggling eight year old girls, but whatever. I laughed throughout, like, the whole thing (roughly equal parts amusement and affection), and there was singing and dancing and basketball and prom and graduation and Ryan being delightfully gay and an entire scene whose sole purpose, as far as I could tell, was to have everyone in the cast grope hug Gabriella. Anyway, that was pretty much the final part to my whole birthday week extravaganza, and I had a blast.

Also, while we were shopping beforehand, Jeremy asked me if I would want a High School Musical DDR-type game, and I was forced to admit that, yes, I really would want that. I'm not sure if I just turned twenty-five or twelve.

Thing 1: Vid insta-rec! (Now That I Can) Dance by [livejournal.com profile] ladymajavader Legend of the Seeker, Richard/Kahlan. Richard tries to impress Kahlan with a combination of flying leaps, pervasive shirtlessness and funky new dance moves he learned just for her. But does she love him (now that he can dance)? I know fandom's collective attention is currently focused on a different cracky fantasy show, but I kind of love Legend of the Seeker beyond the telling of it. Even if you're not watching the show, I'd definitely recommend this vid, which is awesome and upbeat and dance-y and cracky and shirtless. Guh.

Thing 3: One Tree Hill!! ♥ Okay, so some of you might be questioning my fandom choices by now, but I refuse to care. I just finished season two, and oh, with Dan -> building on fire and Anders HOT UNCLE COOPER! and Nathan having, like, the best breakdown in the history of ever (where he goes to school because he threw his Playstation at the wall his Playstation broke, and his idea of punishing Haley is to paint the apartment pink and hang pictures of clowns, which is pretty much completely awesome) and crashing race cars and cracky AUs, and ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I wrote fic! Maybe not the fic I was supposed to be writing, but whatever.

Finding Out True Love Is Blind (One Tree Hill - Nathan/Brooke/Haley - R - 2571 words) It happens in the girls' locker room, of all places, and all Haley can think is that she's suddenly become a cliché. Spoilers up to mid-season three.

Written for [livejournal.com profile] talumin, who requested Nathan/Brooke/Haley fic for his birthday. Which, um, was in March, so this is unforgiveably late. But it's finally finished, and only a few months before I have to write another one. Hooray!

I was kind of stalled on this for ages, but a few days ago I sat down and wrote almost the entire thing in one sitting. Which was not so great for my hand or my back (possibly I should stop writing everything longhand?), but was pretty awesome nonetheless. This sudden burst of inspiration can probably be credited to three things:

a) My Brooke/Haley fic being recced on [livejournal.com profile] crack_van. That fic was actually the catalyst for [livejournal.com profile] talumin's request, and it's a fic I really love, so rereading it helped a lot.

b) My recent resurgence of One Tree Hill love. One of the reasons it took me so long to write this was because I really hadn't been into the show for a while, but the last few episodes (which have been a vast improvement over the beginning of the season), coupled with beginning a rewatch of season one, made me love it all over again.

c) Holiday ficathon deadlines. It's not like I'm dreading those, really, since I'm reasonably on top of everything, but they do make writing anything else seem like a fun deviation.

So, the fic is done, finally, and I'm totally excited, because it's my birthday tomorrow! I'm celebrating by giving out fics or other fannish goodies, so if you want to request something (please do!), just ask me here. I also plan on drinking ridiculous amounts of cheap, girly, fruity "champagne" and watching more One Tree Hill, and it's going to be awesome.
