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

AU Bingo Card

I never do these things and the odds of me finishing are slim, but the AU were too tempting to resist. So for my reference, my [livejournal.com profile] au_bingo card:

Bingo )
ozmissage: (Community. i turned out tv.)
I’m unspeakably bored today and working on a very trippy Jack/Claire fic. Distract me?

Name a character from one of my fandoms and I'll give you (a) three facts about them from my personal canon/fanon, (b) a reason he/she sucks, (c) a reason he/she is awesome, (d) five things that never happened to that character or (e) five people that character never fell in love with and why. You pick the character. I pick the letter.

Fandoms: Lost, Supernatural, Being Human, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Community, BTVS, Angel, Dollhouse, Firefly, Gilmore Girls, Mad Men, The Office, The Big Bang Theory, HIMYM, 30 Rock, Parks & Rec, Psych, Chuck, Fringe, and Flashforward.

Alphabet Soup

ozmissage: (MM. Betty.)
So the part where my WIP all disappeared into the ether? That sucked and now I’m just sort of staring hopelessly at a blank word document hoping I can recreate fics through my sheer force of will. Anyway, since I’ve been forced into having a clean slate whether I want one or not I could use a few prompts to get my brain into fic mode again. So alphabet meme it is. You guys know the drill, leave me a word that starts with the letter of your choice and a pairing or character and I’ll write you something. ;)

Fandoms: Lost, SPN (through season four canon only), Whedonverse (any corner), The Office, Flashforward, Parenthood, Community, Being Human (s1 only), Mad Men, and Doctor Who.

ozmissage: (Lost. Kate. Born to run.)

Hey Lost folks help me out: was Kate still under probation when she boarded the Ajira flight? I remember her being told she wasn’t supposed to leave California at some point. So if she returns to the states she would be arrested, yes?

(Why yes I am working on a fic, why do you ask? It also happens to be the world’s most random threesome fic. I don’t know what’s going on, but last night I was attacked by a super needy plot bunny.)


ozmissage: (Lost. Charle & Hurley. BFF OTP.)

I’ve been trying very hard to stay away from LJ until I finish my stupid fic, I even resisted posting about what was IMO the best Lost episode since “The Constant”. Yes, I think it was maybe even better than “La Fleur” which you all know I love more than air, but it was Des. And it was epic. And I’ve already watched it twice. I have theories! But that’s for later. I also have top 5 lists, but that’s also for later cause I want to scrounge up videos/pics to illustrate my answers.

Right now I have an interactive shipping meme which sounds like a fun way to distract myself during writing breaks. (Also? I think I just broke up with Flashforward. Did you guys see that insanity? WTH was that?)

Anyway, meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] arathesane:

Pick 15 of your ships and write down a quote for each of them. Have your flist guess the ships without using Google / imdb.

* Most of these are ridiculously easy, but for the record there are two movie and one book ship mixed in.

1. Why do you love me?/Because you’re a good man. In my experience they’re pretty hard to come by.---Des/Penny, Lost guessed by [livejournal.com profile] hopelessfangirl

2. I was told once that the best way to regenerate body heat is to crawl naked into a sleeping bag with somebody else who was already naked./ Maybe if it rains sleeping bags, you'll get lucky.---Mulder/Scully, XF guessed by [livejournal.com profile] cantbesilent

3. Life just isn't like the movies is it? We're constantly led to believe in resolution in the establishment of the ideal status quo, and it's just not true. Happy endings are a myth. Designed to make us feel better about the fact that life is just a thankless struggle. Do you wanna dance?/ You know what? I think I do.---Tim/Daisy, Spaced (Not guessed)

4. You’ll be fine./Maybe, but who’s going to get my back?---Sawyer/Juliet, Lost guessed by [livejournal.com profile] aurilly

5. She told me to hold onto that horoscope, put it in my wallet, and carry it around with me. One day, it would bring me luck./ Well man, I will say anything for a cup of coffee! Um, I can't believe you kept this. You kept this in your wallet? You kept this in your wallet.../ Eight years.---Luke/Loralei, GG guessed by [livejournal.com profile] missy_useless

6. And will you forgive me for believing you were the spy?/ Of course. Shall we kill him together?---Sirius/Remus, HP guessed by [livejournal.com profile] cut_thestring

7. Boy, I really do fall for dumb ones. You know how you're always trying to save, oh, every single person in the world? Did it ever occur to you that you are one of them?/ No, it never did./ Well, you made the list gorgeous. And you needed some help.---Cordy/Angel, ATS guessed by [livejournal.com profile] greedyslayer

8. Some of what we order depends on if we're having sex after. Woah! Elephant in the room! Are we, do you think? Do you think we're going to have sex tonight?/ Hell yeah.---Michael/Holly, The Office by [livejournal.com profile] hopelessfangirl

9. And I'm not going to pine. I hope you didn't think I was going to pine, okay? I think. . .I think I may have loved you, but I just need to let it go.---Jess/Rory, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] missy_useless

10. Well, I do believe the little woman cares./ I don't care! It's just that I'm used to you, that's all.---Nick/Nora, The Thin Man guessed by [livejournal.com profile] cantbesilent

11. This is what I do know: I miss you. Like, every second. Almost like I lost an arm, or worse, a torso. So, I think I'd be willing to... give it a shot./ Really?/ Yeah./ Do you want us to... to hug now?/ Yeah, I'm good for that.---Willow/Oz, BTVS guessed by [livejournal.com profile] hopelessfangirl

12. Time can be rewritten./ Not those times. Not one line. Don't you dare! It's OK. It's OK. It's not over for you. You'll see me again. You've got all of that to come. You and me, time and space. You watch us run.---Ten/River Song, DW guessed by [livejournal.com profile] arathesane

13. Don't ever, ever, ever, ask me to do anything like that, ever again!/ I don't have anyone but you.---Tony/Pepper, Iron Man (not guessed)

14. What? Did you think I would show you mercy? Or rage? Three years by my side. I’d think you know me better than that.---Adelle/Dominic, DH guessed by [livejournal.com profile] blackmamba_esq

15. If I say no, you’ll never talk to me again./If you say no I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to hire you.----Don/Peggy, MM guessed by [livejournal.com profile] aurilly

ozmissage: (SPN. Bela Talbot does what she wants.)

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: (Lost. Left Behinders FTW.)

Shows I’m behind on but lack the motivation to catch up with right now:

- Chuck (1 ep)

- Fringe (2 eps)

- V (1 ep…man I love EM more than air but this show is doomed. Can’t we just convince JJ to hire her on Undercovers as the big bad or something and move on with our lives?)

- SPN (umm…half a season?)

*sighs*

I’m too busy working on epic fics and Jess/Rory shenanigans anyway. Which brings me to this:

 I impulsively started a new comm yesterday called [livejournal.com profile] dharmadays. There’s nothing there yet, but once I clear the decks WIP-wise I’m planning on having a little Dharma Days ficathon. And by fic-a-thon I mean a loosey-goosey please write Lost fic set in yellow houses that involve barbeques and game nights and absolutely no talk of good vs. evil.

It’s my favorite era and I want to go back to there. My hope is to encourage folks to write AU stuff too cause this isn’t a veiled attempt to generate S/J fic (although it is more than welcome), I want Jack in Dharmaville fic and Kate in Dharmaville fic and random a day in the life of Phil fic or Miles and Richard were secretly doing it fic. I don’t care. I just want it.

So um, indulge me? Join and pimp…I have no banner cause artsy I am not and also I seriously came up with this during those dark five hours it took for the satellite guy to set up the DVR so planning is not a thing that happened. Like I said there’s not going to be anything there for a couple of weeks probably, but still come and play with me! You know you wanna.


ozmissage: (Lost. He talks to dead people.)

Remember how I wanted to write Halloween fic the other day? That’s still a thing, so at the suggestion of the wonderful[info]mollivanders I decided to put out a plea for prompts. Hit me with anything spooky + fandom + pairing/character (s) and I’ll write a drabble or ficlet for you before Halloween. Prompts could be anything from “witch” to the title of your favorite episode of The Twilight Zone---seriously anything is cool.

 

Fandoms I’ll write: Lost, Being Human, Fringe, Dollhouse, BTVS/Angel, Firefly, Flashforward, Eastwick, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me, How I Met Your Mother, The Office, and Community

ozmissage: (Lost. Charlie. Greatest Hits.)

Hey guys, I know I mentioned the sweet drabblethon before, but today is the very last day to claim a prompt and it would be awesome if everyone had a drabble to read come Saturday. They only have to be a hundred words and there are lots of lonely prompts left to choose from including a Jack/Sawyer prompt that I know one of you guys could rock! There are also some Heroes prompts and a Doctor/Rose prompt looking for a home. So if you guys have some free time and feel like doing a little writing check it out. :)

sweet drabblethon claims post
 

ozmissage: (Lost. Charlie Pace)

1. My sweet drabblethon fic is officially done and I’m officially afraid it’s horrible.

2. Flash Forward, I’m beginning to sense a pattern with your story-telling, it goes something like this: creepy opening, nothing happens, nothing happens, redundant flashback sequence, nothing happens, nothing happens, creepy/WTF ending and cue credits. That being said, I have thoughts:

Flash Forward 1x04 The Black Swan )

3. I think I’ve broken up with Glee. I haven’t watched it in two weeks and I don’t feel terribly guilty about it. I love Will and Emma and Rachel, but the dueling pregnancies storyline left an awful taste in my mouth. It was just so soap operatic and it kind of took all of the fun out of the show for me. Maybe I’ll try again later in the season, but at the moment I’m having far too much fun watching Modern Family to go back.

4. I’m going to start working on my crossover exchange fic this weekend! I’m so excited you guys. My prompt rocks.

5. I want to write Halloween fic or possibly just read some. I’m in the mood for something spooky. Anyone got any good ghost stories?


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: (Now We Wait)

1. I got up this morning with every intention to spend the day writing when real life decided that today would be better spent doing everything else instead. Sigh. I have charts and outlines! I do not want to deal with practical matters like shopping and occupying family members who really ought to be able to occupy themselves.

2. Seriously though, I’m going to try not to be too spammy this week, but I’m tackling the last billion luau requests so I apologize in advance if you guys get inundated with ficlets. There are a couple that I’m actually kind of excited about. I’m going to be sad to see the luau end. It’s been a lot of fun to have an opportunity to write so many different characters and pairings. I mean if someone would have told me I would write Jack/Sawyer a month ago…well, there would have been some giggling on my end, but you know it was actually not that hard (of course it was only a drabble.)

3. I watched Julie & Julia this weekend. I mostly enjoyed it although I could have done without some of the Hollywoodization of Julie’s story. Spoilers for the movie and the Julie Powell book under the cut.

Julie & Julia )

4.

Being Human 1x03 )

5. This post is reaching epic levels of longness, but I have a question to pose to you guys. Has anyone read anything good lately? I’m in the middle of a serious book drought and I’m in need of some recommendations. I’ll read pretty much anything, fiction, non-fiction---it really doesn’t matter. I just really want to read something.

Meme, etc.

ozmissage: (Juliet)

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: (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 
 

 

ozmissage: (Interview)
Question for the flist: Do we know for certain that Miles was born in March? Lostpedia is insisting that it's so, but I kind of want to reject their reality and make my own. (Why yes I am working on a Miles fic, why do you ask?)

Also, man I've never listened to much Jazz, but I've been listening to some Miles Davis songs on youtube (research is fun!) and it's kind of awesome. Oh, and apparently Davis did this song called "A Night in Tunisia" with Charlie Parker. Lost is everywhere people.

(Completely unrelated, but "Torchwood: Children of Earth" starts on BBCAmerica tonight. I'm excited! Although, I'm sad that I can no longer call it The Owen Show. I have remained almost completely unspoiled thus far, fingers crossed that I make it until Friday without stumbling onto any spoilers. )
