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.

[livejournal.com profile] remixthedrabble authors have been revealed! I've reposted the fics I wrote to [livejournal.com profile] amidalashari: I Need You Around (A Movie Script Ending Remix) (One Tree Hill, Brooke/Peyton) for [livejournal.com profile] sinandmisery, and Dominating The Lesser Races (This Is Not The Way Home Remix) (Farscape, John) for [livejournal.com profile] lady_smith.

I ended up getting three remixes: Witness (The History Of Violence Remix) (Harry Potter, Neville) by [livejournal.com profile] sophinisba, Game Over (The Innocence Lost Remix) (Harry Potter, Harry/Hermione) by [livejournal.com profile] benebu, and Bad Day (The Slightly More Incestuous Remix) (Heroes, Peter/Niki/Claire) by [livejournal.com profile] sinandmisery.

In non-remixy news, I'm running a comment ficathon at [livejournal.com profile] onetreehillfic, so if you'd like to help me out, go over here and leave some prompts. Prompting is open until May 6th, and posting will be live from May 7th to May 31st.

Oh, and you can still guess which remix I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] remixredux08; there's a fic in it for anyone who guesses right, in a fandom of your choice (and maybe if you guess wrong, too).

Everybody seems to have already posted theirs, and I keep looking at my calendar, thinking ... but there's still four days left in 2007, I can write fic in four days. Which I did. But now the year is officially over, so here is my end-of-year fic roundup post.

When I am king )

Also: my shiny new header and icons, made just for me by [livejournal.com profile] azngal_icons!! I now have Ben and Claudia John and Aeryn on my livejournal, which is just so much awesome. <3 <3

For easy reference, I now have all my fics listed by fandom at this post. And because it something I never really bothered to do, but probably should, I'm starting a series of fic roundup posts.

(Also, I wrote 12 fics this month, which is 12 more than I wrote in September, so yay. And added two new fandoms - four if you include the crossover ficlet.)

Got kinda long, so under the cut )

Finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Reactions (including spoilers for Serenity - don't ask) below.

Everything under the cut )

Once upon a time, I never read crossover fic. I had got it into my head that I didn't like it (despite never having read any); so when I did finally start reading it, I was very picky about what I would read. As an unintended and suitably amusing result, I've never met a crossover fic I didn't like.

So, without much further ado, here are the ones I did:

Circumveration by [livejournal.com profile] maebynot (Harry Potter/Arrested Development - PG-13 - 6900 words) Circumveration, [sur-kum-ver-ATE-shun], n. 1. The process of going around, as in circles. 2. Avoidance, by artfulness and/or deception. 3. Surrounding an object, as by stratagem; entrapment. 4. What goes around, comes around, and everything can change but it all stays the same anyway.

An Analrapist and a Gentleman by [livejournal.com profile] mouseykins1 (Harry Potter/Arrested Development - PG - 2400 words) Sirius Black consults Dr Tobias Fünke to resolve his many emotional problems. However, upon meeting Sirius' housemate, Tobias hatches an ill-begotten plan to bring the men closer together than ever before.

Afternoon Delight by [livejournal.com profile] boyfriendincoma (Veronica Mars/Arrested Development - PG-13 - 5665 words) If you've got a today, don't wear it tomorrow. Tomorrow never happens. It's all the same day.

Veronica Mars and the Vagabond Squib by [livejournal.com profile] monimala and [livejournal.com profile] angel_grace (Veronica Mars/Harry Potter - R - 15,000 words) Veronica's a wizard and Mala and Gracie are quite possibly high.

All's Ferret In Love and War by [livejournal.com profile] monimala and [livejournal.com profile] angel_grace (Veronica Mars/Harry Potter - R - 1880 words) A short sequel to our epic insanity, Veronica Mars and the Vagabond Squib, written because we were both feeling pretty silly and nostalgic.

If you've read/written a crossover fic you want to pimp, feel free to post a link in the comments (my fandoms are all listed in my interests). Last updated 19/5/07.

For anyone in the Harry Potter fandom who enjoys reading genfic, you should definitely be following [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen. The story written for me - Dear Ron, a Percy-centric fic - was recently posted, and I'd recommend checking it (and the rest of the excellent stories there) out.
