heathershaped: (Merlin: OT4)
In all my linkspamming yesterday I er, kinda forgot to post about it. *g* Reveals went up yesterday.

My fic was from [livejournal.com profile] such_heights, and it's OT4, and it's fabulous! It's called In a quiet water'd land. Gwen being awesome and makeouts; I should have known it was Amy. Go read, it rocks hard. ♥♥♥

I wrote Loud As Hope, a bit of messy Arthur/Gwen/Merlin-ness for [livejournal.com profile] kathkin. Im'a repost it in a bit, I guess.

Thanks to the mods!

Also, Finishathon over at [community profile] camelot_fleet! I'm tickled, my results were these:

True Blood crossover (Merlin + Merlotte's, idk it makes sense in my head)
5 (9.4%)

That One Modern AU Where The OT4 Work At a Pizza Hut
40 (75.5%)

Gwen/Morgana SPN fusion fic
17 (32.1%)

Apparently, waitstaff who smell vaguely like pizza dough all the time >>>>>> Gwen and Morgana as hunters (hunters, you guys, HUNTERS adfjalkfja). OKAY FINE. :D The pizza hut AU is the thingy I started for the Hometown AU challenge and I've been wanting to finish it. *g*
heathershaped: (Merlin: Angel C. glance down)
+ I haven't been around much this week! Well, unless you're on Twitter and/or tumblr (read: things I can do in 20-second bursts), you wouldn't have seen me. When I haven't been doing actual RL work, I've been working on overdue fic, wibbling about overdue fic, wibbling some more, writing a little bit more, distracting myself, rinse, repeat, blah blah. Hopefully I can submit one this afternoon, we'll see.

+ After work I'm going down to hang out with [livejournal.com profile] seakisst and [livejournal.com profile] bratkartoffel at Sara's place in Vienna (if I can manage to find my way there without losing myself). We're going to drink butterbeer because we're nerds.

+ Won't be home to watch Merls until late tomorrow, but I still anticipate posting about it when I can and jumping into the comm threads late. Only two episodes left and my Saturdays will be my own again, even though they will be way more sad. Luckily there will still be Fleet parties.

+ I have lots and lots of feelings about the last two episodes of Glee: part squee about the kids (Quinn! Rachel! Brittany! Mercedes!), part squee-harshy ranting about the adults (bar Sue), the fail, and how the show keeps trying to tell me who the best singers are and I keep disagreeing. :/ It's probably for the best that I don't have time to make a reax post, huh? *g* (First of many things, Will legit scares me. No, seriously. DISCUSS IN COMMENTS IF YOU WISH.)

+ My profile! Full of cookies and hot chocolate and penguins and snowballs, I LOVE YOU GUYS! ♥


+ Lastly, a cracky little itunes meme from [livejournal.com profile] schmiss:

1. Put your media player of choice on shuffle.
2. List the first fifteen songs that come up and add "in my pants" to the end.
3. Bold the ones that actually made you LOL.

TBH a lot of these made me LOL, I'm easy.15 songs under the cut )

It's snowing.

A lot.

Er, that's all. *goes back to working on fic; tries to stop, like, deleting huge chunks of it*

I'm sure I'll have Merls thoughts later.
heathershaped: (BSG: Cylons FTW)
[livejournal.com profile] walkingshadow has produced the most perfect post for my current mood so I am pointing to it so that all may enjoy:

How To Tell If Your Pain is ~Manpain~

(in a tv/fannish context, obvs)

+ Also, yesterday out of curiosity and the fact I am firmly in procrastination-mode, I watched Misfits, that new ~Skins-meets-Heroes~ crossover thing on E4? (I was warned, and yet.) OMG WHOSE IDEA WAS THAT. WHO GREENLIGHTED THAT. WHO ACTUALLY THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA. OH MY GOD. It may qualify as the single most offensive television program I have ever seen. I'm warning you now, don't touch it. Heed this warning as I failed to heed it. Others have described why better than I can.

Guess who wrote and created it, I notice? Howard Overman. The same Howard Overman who occasionally writes for Merlin. He's written good episodes of Merlin, I would add. idek.

+ Did I mention I'm in procrastination mode? Smutty Claus in a week, Camelot Solstice the week after that. Someone please, kick me in the ass. No, seriously.

+ I hope you're all having a great day. ♥

obligatory holiday card post pointage. I'll probably get on that this weekend. If I've missed your post, lemme know.
heathershaped: (Merlin: Arthur/Gwen/Merlin)
+ I may have created a Katie/Angel/Morgana/Gwen tumblr, for picspamming and general sharing of prettified pics, quotes, videos, gifs, and whatever else concerning the girls. If you're on tumblr, follow it! With Flowers. :D

+ Fest season is in high gear and I am sitting on my hands. I definitely don't need to be signing up for Valensmut, Wizard Love, 3 Ships (man, 3 Ships is tempting) etc. when I have yet to finish Smutty_Claus or camelotsolstice and am definitely doing Yuletide. Also, the art that's being used in the banners for [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest makes me want to sign up for it, it's so pretty. *cuddles Rose and Albus and Lily and Scorpius* But that is a ridiculous reason to sign up for an exchange if ever there was one, so I'm not, you know, going to. But you all should, if you're inclined, they look like much fun even if I don't think the stress would be good for me.

+ [livejournal.com profile] merlin_femslash. Need I say more? Also, [livejournal.com profile] merlin_cliche. Because magic unicorns made them do it, and it was good.

+ Art rec: Arthur/Gwen/Merlin film-noir THEY ARE SO HOT I CAN'T TAKE IT. And it's completely safe for work. The accompanying kinkmeme ficlet? Definitely not for the kids.

+ Fic rec: I've been reading a lot of lovely things lately, which reminds me how much I fail at my recs-listing, but here's one real quick: Please (NC-17) by [livejournal.com profile] blackmamba_esq. Kinky Arthur/Gwen. Dom!Gwen hits buttons I didn't even know I had.

+ I've been reading Glee fic. Kurt/Puck and Quinn/Rachel. Oh yeah. (Thanks, Inell.)

+ Apparently Christian Bale had TOM CRUISE in mind when getting into Patrick Bateman's character for American Psycho. brb loling forever.

+ I am having a good day at work. Stuff is working. :D Hope everyone is doing well - hugs to everyone who needs them. ♥
heathershaped: (Clue: Flames)
How about a rare display of negativity, hm? I'm due.

+ I am SO NOT HAPPY with Bank of America right now. Up till last week I've not had problems, but all of a sudden, fail all over the place, on top of fail, with a side of fail. I don't even have the energy to go into details, but the fuckers can't manage to get anything right on the mortgage end, the checking end, or the credit card end, and now they've raised the interest rate on my damn card for no fucking reason. I'm not charging another goddamned thing, and I can't pay it off soon enough. Argh.

+ Being a grownup sucks.

+ If any of you catch me talking about signing up another fic exchange except for [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus in November, and maybe [livejournal.com profile] hermione_smut if that happens again, STOP ME. For serious. I'm not talking about fairly open-ended fic-a-thons, or relatively loose commitments like big bangs, or the odd fic challenge here and there, all of which are on me and for me, and if I get to them, great. I'm talking about exchanges, where I'm writing to an assignment, for another person, with deadlines, wherein my muse always freaking fails me until the last minute because apparently that's how I work.

The hell of it is, I actually kind of like what I wrote for this one. But I'm still done.

+ Fucking hell.
heathershaped: (Trek: Uhura)
+ Er, started my [livejournal.com profile] hp_rarities fic over again. Decided it works better from the other person's POV, as if I needed to delay myself more. *headdesk* Why I've yet to produce something for this assignment that I actually like enough to show people, I can't say.

+ If you ever have to send flowers as I did today, I do NOT recommend ProFlowers, jsyk. Between care and handling, shipping, saturday delivery, and fuck knows what else, they turned a sixty dollar order into a one-hundred and three dollar order. Needless to say I cancelled it and went with 1-800-flowers, which turned my sixty-dollar order into a seventy-dollar one.

+ Joe Flanigan is love. I don't even know what the Jace Hall show is, but he was on it (video in comments), and he's really fucking hot when he's being profane (and it seems to be rubbing off on me). So much so that I wish SGA had been on proper cable. I need an icon that says "Whoa, dude, I did not come down here to be in your little web-based bullshit."

+ Why am I so excited for Star Trek? I've never been THAT big into Star Trek. Besides, I don't actually have time to go see it this weekend what with vet appointment, Mother's Day, the massive amount of studying I still have to do, and I can probably just forget about writing until Tuesday. Still. *watches trailer again* *mentally shuffles things around in an effort to find time so I won't have to see it too far behind everyone else*
heathershaped: (LotS: Kahlan)
+ Dollhouse might get a second season? If this happens I will be shocked at first, and then I will be bouncy. :D I need a Sierra icon.

+ I have been watching SGA. I... don't know why; I've never really been into it before. TV fandoms are strange; I suppose because they're so small, you see a lot of the same people across fandoms, and a lot of Merlin fen came over from SGA so I guess you could say I was curious. Anyway, I'm a third of the way through season 1. I'm not really getting into the fandom for it, because I hear it's mostly McShep (and also wank), but I kind of like the show, so far. I love Teyla first, Elizabeth next. (Also, apparently I am destined to like television shows where half my het ships are part of the fandom's biggest slash ships and are therefore rarely going to ever be written or spoken about. LOL. Which is not to say that I dislike McShep, but still.) *pokes around for some fic anyway; will settle for gen* I guess pretty soon I will be trying BSG, too? Bzuh.

+ Also! Started watching Big Bang Theory. WIN. Win, win, win.

+ Moar TV stuff -- I'm all caught up with Legend of the Seeker. Very entertaining! It's kept me watching; and I love Kahlan. She is so fierce I can't take it. Slow-motion fight sequences and kick-ass women FTW. But it's a difficult show to ship in because there are so few characters and Richard doesn't really do it for me. Might be the weird American accent.

+ Made some progress on my [livejournal.com profile] hp_rarities fic this weekend. *\o/* And I have a Merlin fic due that I may or may not get to; we'll see. *crosses fingers*

Another Saturday Night )
heathershaped: (SPN: chibi!jensen eye of the tiger)
+ Happy Pi Day, bbs! I am CRAVING pie. This is how big a nerd I am (also, I just like pie). I think I'm going to go get some even though I've been gone all day and forgot to pick some up when I was out.

+ My [livejournal.com profile] hp_spring_fling fic is pwned, if a bit overdue. Next is my Ladies of Camelot AU fic, Morgana's POV, set post-Moment of Truth. (I've got to get over my nerves when it comes to writing Merlin fic in general, btw. Just new fandom wibbles, I guess. *looks at started fics on hard drive* I do fine with HP; it really shouldn't be all that scary. *eyerolls at self*)

+ I'm redoing my layout while I have time. No moar yellow. And, I think, no moar Tom and Joe. 'Bye for now, pretties.

+ Look upon my new icon and squee, people. I really need to catch up on Supernatural. And Skins. I got a chance to catch Smallville on Thursday though, and god ... I really wish I knew how to quit that show. *headdesk* It's Tom. He won't let me look away. -_-'
heathershaped: (Merlin: Mean Girls)
How about a proper, less-whiny post, hm? ;) I've got the day off, so not much to complain about overall.

+ [livejournal.com profile] hpvalensmut reveals are up, so go check out the fics! I did Hermione/Luna, which was my first go at femmeslash (obviously I liked it, 'cos I now have two rather epic femmeslash fics in the pipeline. XD) Also, [livejournal.com profile] hp_springsmut started posting yesterday, and it promises to be awesome.

+ Also in the potentially-epic category, I'm bouncy about the Hermione Big Bang (which we were able to put together quite quickly, considering -- clearly that's because Inell, Flora, and Mary kick ass), and I already know just what I want to write for it even if I've got [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang and [livejournal.com profile] boxofmagic that are more immediately pressing in terms of deadlines.

+ Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] boxofmagic, I know a few of you on my flist are doing it too -- and I hope this goes without saying, but just in case it doesn't, I'm here if you guys need a sounding board or a cheerleader or a shoulder to whine on, or anything like that. A couple of you've been lovely enough to offer the same to me, which means a lot because I'm still getting my feet wet in this fandom. ♥ SO. ANYTHING YOU NEED, K? No matter what pairing. Feel free to email me at hnicole83 @ gmail dot com. ♥

+ Also, wish me luck because I have SO MUCH TO WRITE OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS. Between the three Bangs, the summer fests, and the fact that I have totally unrelated bunnies that I want to write as well. *bounces around* I kind of love it, though.

Okay, I'm off to work on my [livejournal.com profile] hp_spring_fling assignment and a Merlin ficlet. Hugs to anyone who need them today. ♥
heathershaped: (Being Human: Annie)
* Today's been good. I have nothing planned except to watch the Oscars, so I wouldn't exactly call it exciting, but just ... it's nice not having anything pressure-ful to do. XD

* I caught up with the last ep of Being Human which was AMAZING; seriously, you should all be watching. Only one episode left. And I posted a set of icons from 1x04 that I made last night. It's kind of hard to color those caps, but I found a nice way I think.

* Oh, and my [livejournal.com profile] hp_springsmut fic is pwned (why yes, I did finish the fucking in the fic). Two more exchange fics left for this season. I was really tempted by [livejournal.com profile] weasleyfest, but I'd already bit off a bit too much with [livejournal.com profile] hp_spring_fling and [livejournal.com profile] hp_rarities. :( No more doing three and four exchanges at a time. Yeah. I love them, but I've recently realised how nice it is being able to write something just because I want to, rather than just filling a request, so I want to give myself more time to do that.

* Merlin fic! I'm sort of incredibly nervous to start writing in this fandom, but it's really difficult to watch the show and NOT want to write about it. The characters are just so writeable. (And this is apparently the post where I make up words). I did some teenyfics for the Vag Fest, which was fun -- I might do one or two more before it ends today. And I want to try some of the Gen Battle prompts. There are some good Merlin and Harry Potter ones, and that one ends next Friday. Also, I'm tempted to put my hat in for [livejournal.com profile] boxofmagic because Arthur/Merlin is nice, but there needs to be more Gwen and Morgana fic, and so few people have signed up to write it. *nods and nudges people* Still, it's a rather huge writing commitment, so I need to think on it more. XD

* I'm off to do some beta work, maybe try another teenyfic, and put together a Merlin squee/rec list out of my del.icio.us bookmarks because I finally have TIME.

♥ Hugs to everyone who need them today -- oh, and hay new friends!
heathershaped: (Being Human: Mitchell/Annie)
Random snippet of conversation last night over Y!M at 2am:

Me: I should sleep so I can get up and finish this fucking fic
Inell: hee
Inell: or finish the fucking in the fic?
Me: hahahaha
Me: yes, that too


Right, off to go do that now. XD
heathershaped: (Merlin: Gwen/Morgana art)
* My three-day weekend passed entirely too quickly. LOL. I spent some time writing, even though I still couldn't manage to finish my Springsmut fic. That'll get done tonight, hopefully. There's just the matter of the actual smut to attend to. XD

* Yesterday was fun! Went out with [livejournal.com profile] cloverdew and [livejournal.com profile] bratkartoffel for Vietnamese and to see Coraline. Coraline was completely lovely; I'd definitely recommend it. Adorable and slightly creepy at the same time, and beautifully animated and acted. I now want to check out the book asap.

* Another thing I'd recommend from yesterday: The Apple Chai from Starbucks. I never really go to Starbucks b/c I don't do coffee unless I'm extremely sleepy, and it's expensive, but I could be persuaded to go back for the apple chai (which is obviously not coffee, lol). Sweet spicy goodness.

* I'm still obsessed with Merlin; it's crack, but it's definitely the good crack. I'll explain later. And there's some awesome fanwork! What a great fandom. I've been compiling a list of recs that I'll post soon. Once I'm done with exchange fics, I'll be trying some Merlin fic of my own, because there's not enough girl!fic out there. I'll have to pitch in. *nod* This might be a fandom where I'm actually more comfortable writing girls than boys (I KNOW.) We'll see. I love all four main characters to bits.

* Go do some comment!fic at the Gen Battle! Needs moar Potter and Merlin. XD
heathershaped: (Dexter: Dex & Angel)
* LMAO. I get home from a really long day at work and class, check my flist, and what do I see but some much-needed lulz from one Senor Bale.

Apparently he blew up at the Director of Photography on the set of Terminator: Salvation. And the audio is a thing of epic proportions.

direct link to audio. It will start playing without prompting, in case you're on the phone to your mother like I was.

I mean, sexy accent or not, the man obviously has a problem and is completely out of line, but still. LMAO. Chill, Christian. You sound like Bill O'Reilly for one, and for two, I need you to not be in jail and unable to film a Dark Knight sequel. Asshole.

* My [livejournal.com profile] hpvalensmut fic is pwned, which is good since it's due, um, right about now. Just need a title. So now I can read Merlin fic and do RP-related stuff without that nagging feeling of having something else that needs doing. Course, [livejournal.com profile] hp_springsmut is yet to be finished.

* Taxes are pwned, too, which is infinitely more important than any of that.

Hope everyone's having a good week so far! ♥

*** [livejournal.com profile] hpvalensmut is back, and yes I did sign up. *headdesk*

I will get either Valensmut or Springsmut done early.
I will get either Valensmut or Springsmut done early.

...yeah. :P I seem to have signed up for quite a few things so far, but I wouldn't do it if I didn't love this stuff. LOL.

*** This weekend I will be cleaning the house and buying food. And hopefully taking some time to write. I don't have Christmas Eve off, so I really don't want to come home from work and scramble around to get things clean and ready.

*** I'm worried that some of you might get your holiday cards late. But they've been sent, promise!

heathershaped: (Caffeine!!!)
** Update on the Tree Saga: Actually nothing, it's all decorated now and looks pretty good if I can say so. ;)

** I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] hp_springsmut. Eeep! I thought, at one point, I was resisting exchanges. Huh. Anyway! Signups are here. There's all this next-gen slash and that's cool, but more representation from the Hermione rarepairs would be awesome. :D And Seamus and Neville. *nod* Actually, Harry could use some love too. Whatever; go sign up for whomever you want. :P

** Speaking of writing, things are kind of piling up on me. At least they're not all fest things, more like holiday fics and other things I want to write that I must find time for before my muse decides to take any overseas trips.

** I might have had caffeine.

** That hamster/popcorn/piano video is adorable and all, but toward the end I started to wonder why the guy kept trying to flip him over. D: The hamster looks so content with his popcorn; they should have left him to nibble in peace. (btw, if you click that link, turn the sound off or you risk getting a supremely annoying song in your head, just sayin'.)

And, that's it.
heathershaped: (noodle dancing)
Cheating again, maybe, a little.

This is becoming a pattern, but hell, I've been posting something every day this month. *nod* Anyway! I sent off my [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus fic. *dances* Godspeed, little buddy. See you on the other side.

Which means I can post my [livejournal.com profile] 7snogs tables without feeling guilty! :D

These are mostly for my reference.

Guys, I got nothing today in the way of NaBloPoMo, but I would like to post that holiday card poll thing that's been going around. The poll is only viewable to me, so feel free to leave your name and mailing address if you want me to send you a holday card this year!
