I’m putting off my Sammy meta until later because when I started typing it I kept swinging from keyboard smash rage to weepy, “OMG, the writers hate me!” outbursts and I realized those things were not proportionate responses. My emotions are all wonky today, I got sniffly reading an article about Private Practice this morning and I don’t even watch that show.

Anyway, I’m taking a break from crossover fic writing/meta attempts to go watch TVD and forage for food. So hungry. I swear I feel like The Hulk today. [livejournal.com profile] ozmissage smash! Umm…yeah. I have a meme:

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. (You don’t have to do that last thing unless you want to. I hate bossy memes.)

*All of my fandoms are fair game, including TVD.

1.we’ll sleep when we’re dead, PG, Charlotte & Juliet, Lost
2.stars, R, Jack/Claire, Lost
3.trousers are overrated, PG-13, George/Mitchell, Being Human
4.routine, R, Bonnie/Stefan, TVD
5.don’t ask, don’t tell, R, Alaric/Juliet, TVD/Lost
6.the hazards of office boredom, PG, Cordy & Wes, ATS
7.breakfast of champions, PG, Jack/Sawyer, Lost
8.the joy of cooking, PG, Left Behinders, Lost
9.l' esprit de escalier, PG, Jack, Lost
10. backseat, PG, George/Mitchell, Being Human

Did everyone have a good Easter? Or a good Sunday if you don’t celebrate?

*points to icon* I have a Bela talbot icon! Oh Bela, in a perfect world there would be a show about you being awesome and stealing stuff, possibly with Parker from Leverage and Miles Straume. I want to live in that Altverse.

It’s too late to type a proper update and I’m kind of queasy from too much Easter supper and too much time in the sunshine (the Easter bunny brought my niece a kiddie croquet set which meant lots of outside time today) so I’m breaking out an old meme:

Ask me my fannish Top Five [whatevers]. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post.

Tomorrow is going to be devoted to writing, so making lists will be a nice distraction in between my inevitable, “Oh my God how do you string words into sentences again?” angst.


ozmissage: (SPN. Walk softly...)

Um…I just watched Paranormal Activity.

So I guess I’ll never be sleeping again. Oh well, I needed to finish my [livejournal.com profile] a_lost_art fic tonight anyway.

I kept waiting for Sam and Dean to show up…but they never came and OMG. Never watching that again. Like for real.

I’ll be over here trembling in fear if anyone needs me.


ozmissage: (Lost. You guys where are we?)

Drive by posting: Sorry I haven’t been around much this week; things have been interesting around my house and not in the good way. Anyway, I’ll be playing catch-up this weekend so if I missed any posts/fics (I’m sure I missed lots) I apologize. As soon as real life stops being a pain I’ll post a proper update.

And I’m super late but here’s my thread at [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti.  I'm offering one fic of 1,000 words or more.

Perspective wise what happened there makes my week look like the best week ever. I donated what I could to the Red Cross, but that really doesn’t feel like enough.

Anyway, I hope you guys are having a nice weekend. Now I need to go get better acquainted with a bowl of soup.


ozmissage: (DH. Topher. Super Genius.)

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know I posted my fic master list today. You can find it here if you’re interested. I debated on digging through my old fanfiction.net account and adding links to my Gilmore Girls fics from yester-year, but then I decided that some things are probably best left where they are.

Some fic stats that are probably only interesting to me:

* I’ve written roughly 42 fics (including drabbles) in six fandoms since June. Umm…I clearly need to find a job soon.

*Fourteen either featured the illustrious Mr. Straume or Sawyer/Juliet.

*So far I’ve written Sayid with seven different Lost ladies.

* I’ve actually written Jack way more than I thought had; he’s featured prominently in at least five fics.

*Only one Being Human fic so far. I need to fix that.

In completely unrelated news: Pumpkin cake is maybe the greatest cake ever (discounting Red Velvet because nothing is better than Red Velvet) and this is coming from someone who is not a fan of pumpkin pie.

Oh and if you haven’t heard[info]demonqueen666 is holding a sweet drabblethon at her journal. Tonight is the last night to leave a prompt and Lost is woefully underrepresented so far, so head over there and get your prompt in by midnight.

And don’t forget Dollhouse airs tonight on Fox at 9:00 p.m. EST, Topher Brink will cry if you don’t watch.

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

ozmissage: (The Original A Team)

1. I made this frozen lemon pie thing last night that was okay. It didn’t set properly for some reason, so that was annoying, but it was edible. I’m going to blame the Neeleys, it was their recipe (although probably not their fault, but they’re so disgustingly happy all the time it makes me feel better to say it was.)

2. My brother wants me to go to Dragon Con with him this year, but given my current joblessness I can’t bring myself to spend the money. I would maybe do it if there was someone there who I’ve always wanted to meet (Seth Green, Adam Baldwin, anyone from Lost, Neil Gaiman, Greg Grunberg) but I’m not really feeling the guest list. Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell are going which is cool, but I don’t necessarily want to meet them. Oh and Ianto from Torchwood, but I’m more of an Owen girl myself. (What’s Burn Gorman doing these days anyway? Someone needs to snatch him up. )

3. My muse is on strike this week, which is inconvenient because I want to work on my Sawyer/Juliet fic for mollivanders, not to mention the various Dollhouse plot bunnies that have been attacking during my rewatch. Also, I have a new Miles fic in the works, but the pairing is…well, let’s just say it’s unusual, but I’m kind of excited about it. Now if only I could get myself to focus long enough to actually finish any of those I would be a very happy fangirl.

4. Okay this is the real reason I’m posting: I just read the coolest Lost casting spoiler and I need someone to come squee with me. Spoiler under the cut.

Lost Casting Spoiler )

5. Um, so that Avatar trailer looks… interesting. It’s certainly pretty, but I’m not sure I would actually want to see that movie. We’ll see.

 

ozmissage: (Topher)

 I upgraded to a paid account and then spent an insane amount of time collecting icons last night. The result is I now have seventy-five billion icons saved. I thought for sure fandom would fail me in my search for a Doctor/River Song icon because I’m pretty sure that I’m one of like five people who actually ships them, but I managed to find several without having to do much searching.

Dollhouse fandom on the other hand failed me pretty epically. Um, hi where are all of the Topher icons hiding? I know fans of the show for the most part consider him the devil himself, but those of us who like our geniuses snarky and slightly amoral need icons too. I finally found a couple that I liked after a good hour of surfing through dozens of Echo and Ballard icons, but come on fandom, where is the Topher love?

Actually while we’re on the subject of Dollhouse and Topher, why in the name of all that is good and Whedony are there so many people shipping Topher/Saunders? Admittedly, I’ve been largely watching the show in my own private bubble, but I feel as if I’m missing something. It must be coming from that one scene in the finale, but I didn’t read that as Topher has a secret crush on her. I read that as a manifestation of the guilt over what he has done to her and the others (and what he is still doing to them  everyday.)

I mean there’s nothing wrong with shipping Topher/Saunders, it’s just personally I don’t see where it’s coming from. I don’t actually ship Topher with anyone, but I would love to see a well thought out, intricate fic detailing the friendship between Adelle/Topher because that’s my absolute favorite relationship on the show. I’m not sure what that says about me as a person.

Moving on, I have not forgotten about my promise of Sayid het. It is coming, but I have unfortunately been sidelined by a case of the dreaded Blahs. I just haven’t been in the writing mood the past couple of days. I think seeing all of these school supplies in the stores is getting me down. I love buying binders and paper clips and new folders, but for the first time ever…I have no reason to.

And then it hits me that I’m never going to school again which is kind of terrifying because I’m good at school (well, not math, but who needs that anyway?) I have yet to see any proof that I’m good at anything else. Every time I pass a shelf of notebook paper it’s like a reminder that "Hey, you know you’re a college graduate, missy, why are you not successful and awesome yet?" And then I want to go silently weep into a stack of multi-colored post-it notes.

Sigh. Um, so this post took a turn down a very depressing alley…

Anyway, hopefully my bad mood will pass and I can get back to making Sayid fall in love with all of the Lost ladies. I watched “Enter 77” under the guise of research yesterday and was reduced to a giggling mess when I heard Sayid tell Kate to, “get some rope.” Which is exactly what Sawyer says to Juliet at the end of “Some Like it Hoth”. See, this is why it pays to rewatch Lost. And as much as I love Sawyer, the prospect of Sayid + Rope is much more appealing to me. Mmm, Sayid…


 

Meme, etc.

So I kind of abandoned Facebook a month or so ago for the sake of my mental health. I was never crazy about the concept in the first place, so I figured I would leave it sooner or later anyway. Today I get an email from Facebook scolding me for not logging on recently. Seriously, it was like you have a message and one of your friends took the which my little pony are you quiz, you are missing things. How dare you not update your status in a month?

Um, excuse me Facebook, but I was under the impression that I could you know do what I want. I’m considering deleting my page entirely, but I feel that would annoy some people so I guess I’ll just have to deal with Facebook interrogating me about my whereabouts every few weeks. Social networking sites are so clingy.  

In other news, I’m supposed to be working on fic, but I couldn’t resist the lure of the WIP meme. I had forgotten I started a few of these.

The WIP meme: post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations.

WIP )

New Being Human tonight!!! Can you tell I'm a little excited?

ozmissage: (Greatest Hits)

1. My apologies for the mass amounts of fic this week, guys. The luau is keeping me busy. Up next Sayid het and hopefully some Desmond fic. Wish me plot bunnies.

2. This week's [community profile] fannish5question: What are the five most heartbreaking things that have ever happened in your fandom? I stuck with Lost this week, so spoilers obviously, not that I think there's anyone on my flist who could be spoiled by Lost yammering. Also, choosing just five was ridiculously hard. I could have chosen twenty from season five alone. Stupid, sad show.

Lost sad? Whatever gave you that idea? )


3. Today is quality time with the family day, so I'll be AWOL until tomorrow some time. Have a great Friday, guys! :)

 

ozmissage: (Two Weeks)

1. Thank you guys so much for all of the birthday wishes! You really made my day. *Hugs everybody*. I had a nice birthday. My parents are enabling my television on DVD addiction by giving me Mad Men season two (epic rewatch commences tomorrow) and Pushing Daisies season two (I’m going to watch “Comfort Food” like nine thousand times), add this to my own pre-order of Dollhouse and it looks like I’m going to be watching a lot of television in the immediate future. Of course that’s not exactly a new thing.

2. I’m still working on that Miles fic. I will have that sucker posted by Sunday even if it kills me. I’m not sure why I’m having such a hard time getting this fic to cooperate. It would help if all of these other plot bunnies would stop distracting me.

3. Also, you know what this fandom needs? A Sawyer nickname generator. I spend an insane amount of time angsting over nicknames when I write Sawyer. Seriously, I fail at coming up with witty nicknames. I just want to type in say “Walt” and have the computer spit out some sort of pop culture savvy nickname.

4. I’m not sure how many of you guys are watching Torchwood: Children of Earth, but I would like to know when this show went from being amusing crack to legitimately good television. That said I kind of want the crack back.

Torchwood: Children of Earth Day Four )


5. I watched Leverage last night. 

Leverage: The Tap Out Job )

6. Seriously, you guys all rock! :D
