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?)

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 [ profile] breakingbeads for [ 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 [ profile] sugargroupie for [ 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 [ profile] sugargroupie for [ 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! [ 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.
