The archive for [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang IS UP!!! Bweeee, we have so much fic and so much amazing art so please check it out! Loads of different pairings, both het and femslash. [livejournal.com profile] inell is mostly responsible for it going as smoothly as it has. <333 Thanks to the pinch-hitters as well.

Later today we'll post a masterlist, once all the other admin stuff is done.


ALSO. OMG. People in the UK are watching new Merlin AS I TYPE THIS and I am so jealous. I can't wait till I can watch! Happy squeeing, all. For the moment I am subjecting Inell, who is here, to a Merlin season one marathon while we code shit. :D

Firstly, hi new friends that I've met from party posts and otherwise! *waves* I'm same username on Twitter if you want to add me there as well.

Also, I saw a cool vid today. I figure I might as well get you used to my extreme geekiness early and often. In other words, here's MN Senator Al Franken drawing a detailed map of all 50 states from memory. *_*

Hey Minnesota, how about you take Arlen Specter, and we'll take Al Franken, Y/Y? Sound like a deal? (Sigh, I miss having Maryland's senators.)

+ [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang's deadline was last night, and I'm in charge of uploading art and making participant banners, yay! Should be funtimes over the next couple days. Posting starts 9/19.

+ I continue to be jealous of everyone who was at the Merlin screening yesterday (though I am conflicted because through my envy I am also SO happy ya'll had a great time!), and the recap posts have me bouncing around. Loving the squee happening from every section of fandom that I frequent. Femslash, het, slash - because that's how Merlin rolls. But I have to tear myself away from it all at some point.

+ Happy Labor Day to all who celebrate. In a little while I must be off to go eat some food outside. There may be corn involved. Also, my hair looks nice.

Rough drafts are due for [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang. That snuck up on me even though Inell, Flora and I were just chatting about it on Sunday. :P We're going to be reading and artist-matching for (hopefully) lots of fics! We'll be open for submissions through next Friday and we've already got a handful of drafts in this morning. Hoping this goes well. *crosses fingers*

*goes to make a post to the main comm*

Random stuff:

+ I am kind of weirded out/impressed/geeking out about this 10-minute abridged version of the Google Wave demonstration on YouTube. It looks ... shiny. And a bit freaky at the same time. Being able to see what the other person is saying as they type it letter-by-letter. Being able to hold a group chat and hide some replies from some users within the same chat. That real-time automatic translator thing. Syncing with Twitter. (LOL @ 'Twave'.) A lot more cool, largely unnecessary, probably-hard-to-get-used-to but still COOL stuff. I should like to try it out. XD /nerd

+ I just left a load of prompts for [personal profile] oxoniensis's Porn Battle VIII. Go! leave some!

+ Speaking of prompts, I am FULL of fic ideas -- Trek, Merlin, and HP -- but nothing has made it to completion yet. *browses folder of started fics and frowns* Actually finishing one would be lovely. I am currently playing with Uhura/Gaila genfic and Kirk/McCoy kidfic, [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang Trio fic, and Gwen-centric [livejournal.com profile] boxofmagic fic of as-yet-unknown pairing. *headdesk* It's still gen at the moment; maybe it'll stay that way. I'm seriously not sure if I'll get that done in time, but I'll finish and post it either way. It'll be nice to finish something long for Merlin fandom.

+ I get distracted too easily. Maybe I should do one of those fandom to-do lists.
heathershaped: (Obama Michelle)
Fannish things that have made me smile today:

+ Limerick battles at the [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang author community *loves*
+ Reading the prompts at [livejournal.com profile] femgenficathon
+ Having a [livejournal.com profile] boxofmagic idea that is solid (finally OMG) -- and a Gwen muse that is loud enough in my head to write it :D
+ Pics from the Obamas' trip to Europe. We has The most Stylish First Couple Evar.

RL things that I feel reasonably okay about:

+ Trying to cut down house payment. Making progress on that front.
+ Possibly having enough money to upgrade to an iPhone, once my tax refund comes in
+ Annual review time at work -- meep. I never look forward to these, no matter what. But hopefully it will be fine.
+ The general Friday-ness of today
+ Having time to write this weekend

Hope everyone's having a good day -- hugs to anyone who needs them. ♥
heathershaped: (Writing)
+ Merlin art insta!rec: On Being Servants to the Royalty by [livejournal.com profile] glockgal. Arthur+Merlin, Gwen+Morgana.

Moar recs to come. *ties string around finger*

+ I was kind of spamtastic last week when it came to posting; not so much this week. I'm just so damn tired. I had my exam yesterday and it was fine. Not horrible, but not especially awesome either. *shrug*

(Though there was a question about the European pond turtle, genus Emys, and the number of times I found myself about to write 'Emrys' is fairly ridiculous.)

+ Hopefully posting another study-break ficlet tonight if I can finish; I actually didn't take many breaks over the weekend, but I'm still going to plug away at the ficlets. Want to do one for each fandom requested, at least -- though I only got one Merlin prompt; I had more of a choice with Being Human and HP. I got a lot of Seamus requests, which is cool; I love writing him. :D Also still working on my Ladies of Camelot fic. Might put a plea out for a quickie beta on that one in the next day or two. Big Bangs are still not quite banging yet, but I'll get there.

+ Speaking of Big Bangs, [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang sign ups close on Friday! The response continues to overwhelm us, and our author comm, [livejournal.com profile] hermionebangers? Is awesome. I love how many people are using it to flail and brainstorm and squee and share writing tips/strategies. Makes me grin a lot.

+ How are you all doing? Hugs to everyone who needs them today. ♥ I'm back to work. Might have to stay an hour or so late to finish something, but it's all good.
heathershaped: (X-Men: Remy)
+ Cassie Hannah Murray as Matt Smith's companion? LOL, they must be trying to start wank. People whined because they thought Matt was too young and Hannah's nineteen ... still, if this happens, it might make me poke my head back into that fandom, like I did for Freema. :P

To be honest, I can't see it happening, but it would be better than Kelly Brook or Lily Allen.

+ I got yet another [livejournal.com profile] boxofmagic idea while driving to work this morning, and I think this might be the one. XD It's weird, and I don't know what the pairing(s) will turn out to be, though.

+ Come leave some prompts for some of our [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang authors to pick over! Hermione-centric, gen, crossover, or shippy bunnies all welcome, for adoption, feeding, or breeding purposes. Whether or not you're participating there must be something you want to see. ;)

+ Question: There's been random friending by Russian journals and empty accounts, and various other weirdness happening here and elsewhere on LJ, so I'm thinking of friends-locking my journal (except for the fic and icons). Of curiosity, why do you guys lock your journals or if you don't what made you decide not to? (Just generally speaking; obvs I don't need to know exactly what caused the decision. :P) I've thought about it a couple times before, but haven't ever gone through with it. I hesitate because ... well, I don't know. I just don't like the idea of locking everything down and I don't have a lot of personal stuff on here, and yet, recent happenings are making me consider it.

+ I feel groggy and weird and grumpy. Could use a few more hours of sleep. I'd blame Daylight Savings, but that doesn't really account for the other few hours I could've been sleeping, does it? Thank god for Spring Break, at least -- no class tonight.

+ If when I get my Spring Fling fic finished today, I'm gifting myself with a new layout and header. I'm already completely sick of the yellow.

+ I might be overhauling my Big Bang ideas -- the Merlin one, at least. I'm having a bit of a crisis of confidence when it comes to plotting it out, particularly settling on one bunny and running with it. The HP one is fairly solid; it just needs to be fleshed out. I wish I were better at outlining.

(Speaking of the Hermione Big Bang, it's starting to feel kind-of overwhelming, the way it's been coming together. In a good way, but just ... wow.)

+ I am told that I should be watching Big Bang Theory. Apparently it's right up my alley, and the fact that I've never seen it is a gross oversight that I should rectify immediately. I'll get on that, and report the results. *g*

+ Dollhouse -- I watched the latest episode last night. I'm really getting into it and I'm glad I gave it another shot after the rather slow pilot (I thought). But it's so skeevy; I just want Echo and Sierra to get the hell out of there. And then hook up.

+ I think that's it. Hugs to everyone who needs them today. ♥

+ Big Bang signups are going WELL. They don't even close until the 27th, and if even half of the people who've signed up so far submit something, we'll have upwards of a million words of new Hermione fic. O_O And there is het of many pairings, femslash, crossovers, gen, everything. (Although, [livejournal.com profile] florahart supposes that we're going to need personal sanity consultants before it's done, when it comes to actually running this thing. Needless to say, as it's a Hermione fest, there is already a spreadsheet forming in order to keep it all straight. With tabs. And different colors.

+ We'd love more betas, cheerleaders, and artists as well as authors -- so by all means head over if you want.

Additionally, I promise to keep my rambles about all this to one post a week at most. ;)

+ I've been compiling more Merlin recs, and tossing around the idea of a rare pair recsletter, or something -- in the vein of Quibbler Report? I'm just not sure I'd have the time to maintain something like that. Just a thought. For now, I'll go ahead and post another recs list like normal, probably next week -- or just add to my first one.

+ Welcome to new friends! Feel free to add me on Twitter if you want. And hugs to everyone who needs them today. Special hugs go to [livejournal.com profile] superioritea, [livejournal.com profile] lesemma and [livejournal.com profile] cloverdew; I hope your weekends turn out wonderful. ♥

Author sign-ups | Artist sign-ups | Beta sign-ups | Cheerleader sign-ups


Unrelatedly, please send caffeine.
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. ♥
