heathershaped: (Merlin: Arthur/Gwen)
+ GUYS I FEEL GOOD TODAY. I have today and tomorrow off work, which is awesome. Annnd I have been somewhat productive this weekend! I finished my [personal profile] camelotremix fic (a day late, lalala), and to celebrate, I went over to the Get Arthur and Gwen Laid Campaign at [livejournal.com profile] freemurmurs and wrote some truly filthy A/G porn. *claps in delight* Porn that I may never actually sign my name to, but still! You should all check out that meme if you feel as strongly as I do that Arthur and Gwen should get laid in as many ways as possible.

MY OVERALL POINT IS, I have written more in the last two days than I have in many months! Since the Gwen LAS, I believe. I'm hoping this means my muse is coming back to me and if it is, I might sign up for Yuletide since I have no other holiday exchanges this year (does anyone know when signups are?). I think that would be awesome.

I have much-neglected yardwork to do today and some other things to take care of, but I might write some more pr0ns today too, just to see if yesterday was a fluke or not. :D Apart from that, I have two beta jobs to finish. I'll send them along tonight, ladies. ♥

+ I haven't checked tumblr much at all this weekend which means it'll probably be overwhelming to catch up on at this point, but apparently there is some kind of campaign to woo people back to LJ by not posting on tumblr for a month? I know some of you know what I mean and have been posting about it, and I have some thoughts on it.

tumblr tumblr tumblr )

When it comes to my f-list, I feel like tumblr is not my problem so much as fandom drift. I've dipped into so many fandoms, mostly abandoned my original fandom, and made friends all over the place, and I don't want to lose any of you that I either talk to now, or have formed connections with through RP and whatever in the past. I still read your posts, and try to comment more, and care about all of you. ♥ You guys put up with my social justice ramblings, my random links, my Merlin posts. You commented when I lost my dog, when my mother was in the hospital last year... whether we still share fandoms or not. I love y'all, and I hope I've been as supportive a presence as you all have been. If you ever feel like we're drifting too far apart we can work on it. ♥

heathershaped: (SGA: Ronon)
+ I've decided to offer up graphics for [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti as well as fic. My graphics thread is here -- it's for 25 icons or an LJ header with whatever matching FO/profile banner/icon you'd like to match. Any fandom or theme.

+ [livejournal.com profile] lamardeuse has compiled a list of every offer for fic, graphics, or otherwise that's been made for Merlin fandom.

Busy times in fandom! Couple of pimps:

+ [community profile] camelot_fleet Finish-athon! If you've got any fics sitting on your hard drive that you need a little extra cheerleading to finish (or you know, fics you haven't even started but have been wanting to write), this is the fest for you. Sign ups go until Sunday 17 January.

+ Join [livejournal.com profile] kinkelot for monthly kink challenges for Merls fandom, any pairing/character.

I've never really been a kinky writer; in fact, I'm fine with just makeouts. I love reading it but when I try to write kink it looks ridiculous to me on the page and I have trouble taking myself seriously. It's a problem. BUT, I'd like to be better at it and fandom needs more of it in general. So yes, [livejournal.com profile] kinkelot. :D

+ I'm going to try and catch up on reading some Solstice fic before the reveals. The holidays were too busy and the only one I've read at this point is the one I beta'ed. Ack.
heathershaped: (Merlin: Motherfucking Pendragons)
+ Argh, very busy, very distracting holiday/weekend. I have so much to finish still and I don't want to be back at work. Gah, I'll get it done.

+ Still swooning over this week's Merlin. May actually never stop. It was far from perfect, but. this brief squee contains spoilers, just to be safe )

+ PIMP: SAY IT WITH FLOWERS INTERNATIONAL POSTCARD PROJECT. In which we 1) send postcards to Angel and Katie at the Beeb to show them some love, and 2) hopefully the producers will notice that some of us don't find the concept of a Gwen-Morgana buddy movie episode to be the most hilariously absurd concept ever, Johnny. (We are nothing if not ambitious.)

+ I HAS GOOGLE WAVE. (Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] cherrybina!) I don't know a thing about it apart from a demo vid I watched back in the summer, but it looks neat? Ya'll know I can never resist. So, if you're on it, let me know and I'll add you or... however it works? And we can do ...something? IDK. I'll figure it out. I don't even know if I have invites - where would those be?

+ I hope everyone's week is off to a good start and that you aren't as behind on things as I am. I still need to find myself a personal ass-kicker. ♥
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: (Merlin: 99 problems but a dude ain't one)
+ No Merlin this week! Whatever will we do?

Welllll, you could come hang out at [community profile] camelot_fleet for a little while! Funtimes. There will be pornlets and picspams and randomness. If you've never been to one, no worries, it's easy and fun and we're all very snuggly.

Bradley thinks it's only logical.

Katie agrees.

And Angel's just cute. Crumpets, people, crumpets.

If you don't have a Dreamwidth account, I have invite codes, or you can use OpenID.
heathershaped: (Charlie the Unicorn)
+ The Vag Fest is back! Girl-centric, het and femslash only, any fandom. I haven't had time to read, write, or even leave prompts for it yet, but I'll get to it. :P

+ [livejournal.com profile] blackmamba_esq made an Angel Coulby comm! [livejournal.com profile] angel_coulby. I hadn't realised until now how sad I was that everyone in the cast had one but her. ♥

+ And while I'm pimping, [livejournal.com profile] beyond_camelot. Because everyone needs to write fic about Aglain now. Oh right, and obscure Arthurian characters that need to be Merlinized. (One day I will let the Colin Salmon thing go. Today is not that day.)

+ LOLtastic review for Merls 2x03. IDK, it made me feel better. spoilers in which I ramble a bit more about the ep )

+ Inell's trying to get me to try [livejournal.com profile] bridge2sickbay. She says I can write drabbles within 30-minute time constraints. Isn't that sweet, that she thinks I can do that? ILHER. ♥ Still, I'm considering it, because it looks like fun.

+ Dollhouse Friday was... hm. I don't know what to say about it right now.


+ Okay, back to work with me. I hope everyone's getting their weeks off to a good start. Eventually I will post about something non-fannish. ♥

I'm hosting this week's [community profile] camelot_fleet party! GET OVER THEEEERRRE.

(Y'know. If you want to.)

This week's theme is porn and fluff (because fandom could really use some rn). Leave prompts, share picspams and recs, whatever. XD

(And once you've seen tonight's episode, jump into the spoilerrific version of the party in which we discuss and squee and drabble it out.

Bwee, more new canon soon!
heathershaped: (Merlin: Gwen bright)
...'cause a Camelot party don't -- whatever.

The point is, Merlin peeps, you should come hang out at [community profile] camelot_fleet for a while, it's funtimes.

Introduce yourself, or leave/take prompts, or chat about threesomes, or what have you.
heathershaped: (Mad Men: Joan)
+ I couldn't watch True Blood last night; will catch up when I get home. Hopefully I can keep avoiding spoilers.

+ I did catch Mad Men, which was the best episode yet, though some parts were ...jarring to stay the least. (What was WRONG with people back then? O_o) Anyway, Peggy and Joan continue to own my soul and I continue to watch the show with a mixture of squee and laughter and sadness and irritation and near-palpable tenseness.

+ The party post at camelot_fleet is still going and there are 600 comments or something. There's also a lot of commentfic and it's all fantastic. Gwen/Morgana and Gwen/Merlin and Morgana/Merlin and Uther/Dragon and Uther/Gaius and Arthur/Merlin/Morgana and Hunith/Arthur and Gwen/Nimueh and OT4 and Arthur/Gwen and and and I can't even remember. I'll re-post mine later, methinks.

+ I am recommending it all, but I have to single out this Gwen art, by [livejournal.com profile] yue_ix -- it's modern AU and she is a mechanic and it is BEAUTIFUL because her coveralls are down and she has freckles and a wrench and a tool belt and there's her HAIR and her top and the colors and she's wiping sweat off her brow and good lord it is the most gorgeous thing I've ever seen. And I should link to it, probably.

+ The new tagline for Merlin s2 is "You can't escape destiny." Why does that scare me? :P

+ ETA: Random 'WHOA' -- Disney is buying Marvel? What is this?

+ Deadline for [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang is next Sunday! We're excitedly waiting for the rest of the fics and art and we kind of have a lot of work to do. But we'll get it done and it'll be great. Posting for that starts on 19 September.

+ Hope everyone's getting their weeks off to a good start. After work, I've got coursework to get done for tomorrow, and betaing to do, and I should probably TRY to finish my reel_merlin.
heathershaped: (Merlin: Mean Girls)
Merlin friends, you should head over and check out the Party Post at [community profile] camelot_fleet on Dreamwidth! We seem to be making a weekly thing of it and it is multishippy funtimes.

Last week it was picspams; this week it's commentfic and music. Come leave prompts and recs and make new Merlin friends, yes? *g*

We have to do something whilst waiting for a True Blood upload.

If you don't have a Dreamwidth account I think I have a half-dozen extra codes on my hands, so just let me know. <3

*goes back to Hunith/Arthur ficlet* (OH CHILL, IT'S NOT LIKE THAT.)
heathershaped: (Firefly still flying)
+ I fixed my computer. *\o/* It wasn't a serious problem, thankfully. Still not exactly sure what happened, but I figured out stumbled across which driver was causing the problem and deleted it (in case anyone cares, I went to the Device Manager and clicked the ticky that shows all the hidden drivers, and then discovered that two of the drivers associated with my Norton Internet Security had little exclamation point alerts next to them.) I uninstalled Norton and then put it right back, and now there's no more blue screen. Weird -- but lucky.

I find the fact that my virus protection software was making my computer crash to be hilarious, in a not-really kind of way. But all's well that ends well. Now that I think about it, it might've started right around the time I re-upped my subscription. GEE THANKS NORTON. And thanks, Windows Vista, while we're at it. -_-'

+ Today's the last day to leave prompts and write teenyfics for the Merlin femslash kink meme! So yeah, if interested, go do that. *g* There's already quite a few teenyfic up for reading, in various Merlin girl pairings.

+ Yesterday was really busy, so I'm having a pretty uneventful Sunday. More writing, hopefully doing some admin stuff for HBB, and maybe finding time to watch the Dollhouse unaired pilot and Epitaph One. And Merlin and Trueblood tonight, ohyeah.
heathershaped: (Merlin: Gwen/Morgana art)
+ [livejournal.com profile] gwenmorganabbc is having a Merlin femslash kink meme, running all weekend. :D :D :D It's for for the International Day of Femslash, which is (*checks watch*) today! Go and leave prompts! It doesn't matter whether you're a member of the comm or not, I don't think. Any girl/girl pairing, any rating, any prompt, and you can do it anonymously if you wish. I plan to do some drabbling tonight. Whoever answers the most prompts gets a pretty banner.

+ The collision shop is finished with my car, so I've got to go pick that up/turn in my rental car. It'll be nice being in my own car again and not being paranoid about scratching it and having to spend loads more money.

+ Has anyone ever had this blue screen thing with Windows Vista, wherein the screen goes blue with an error message, saying that something's wrong and Windows is shutting down to prevent damage? Any idea how to fix it?

My new desktop PC keeps crashing that way. I can't tell for sure, but it might have started happening around the same time I installed The Sims 3, which I have since uninstalled. I'm attempting to disable different drivers one by one to pinpoint which one might be causing it, but it's going to take ages that way, and I don't have the money to take it to Best Buy or something, and I'm afraid I'm going to have to re-install the OS or something dire like that. Which means losing all my files and re-installing all my stuff. For fuck's sake, it's times like this I wish I could afford a Mac.

+ Is anyone even AROUND this weekend? :P LJ is so slow. You guys are having too much fun at Azkatraz, aren't you? I will try not to be too jealous. But even Trek fandom is slow. Not that I've helped -- at all. I've been in RL hell for most of this week, surfacing only once to see HBP.
heathershaped: (Merlin: Gwen/Angel smile)
+ EEEEEEE. Bill Nighy cast in Deathly Hallows! *LOVES Bill Nighy* They're not saying who he's playing, though. Who do we think, Scrimgeour? Gregorovitch? Hmmm.

+ There is a femslash porn battle happening, people. :D:D:D Leave prompts; the more the merrier!

+ I signed up to write an essay on Teyla Emmagan for [livejournal.com profile] idol_reflection (it's like ship_manifesto, only with individual characters rather than pairings). *headdesk* I couldn't not. Someone (you know who you are *g*) nabbed Gwen before I could. Not that I won't love rambling about Teyla. <333 BTW, no one's done essays for any SGA characters except for John. And there are NO Merlin characters claimed except for Gwen just now, which is a shame. HP is pretty well-represented but there could always be more. :D If you have a favorite character in any fandom, make a claim and spread the love.

+ Finally, [livejournal.com profile] merlin_rarepair is having a Five Times challenge.

Here is where f-list participation is encouraged. Anyone want to leave me a prompt? Merlin/Gwen, Morgana/Gwen, Arthur/Gwen, Arthur/Morgana, Merlin/Morgana, OT4? Five Times/Things/Whatever. Lay it on me.

+ At some point I will talk about real life again.

Being a grown-up still sucks, news at 11.

entire post, for the most part, jacked wholesale from the lovely [personal profile] bossymarmalade:

Starting Friday June 19th and running until Sunday the 21st, with a day for recovery overflow on Monday. = It's all very casual so I don't anticipate people needing a whole lot of time to prepare.

These are the only rules:

- Your post must involve food/liquor, music, dance, or some combination
- You must link at least two other Block Party entries that you enjoyed

Feel free to use the banner up there -- hotlink away, I don't mind -- or fiddle with it however you want, or create your own! Just let people know it's going down!
heathershaped: (Merlin: Mean Girls)
Just real quick, a Merlin pimp:

[personal profile] briar_pipe and I have joined forces to create a comm here on DW for Merlin fans who multi-ship: [community profile] camelot_fleet. (get it? we are so pun-tastic. XD) It's a place where fans of any pairing(s) on the show can post their fic, recs, meta, art, or squee.

Go watch/join! It'll be funtimes.
heathershaped: (Trek: Uhura/Spock favouritism)
ST Reboot people: Do you understand how awesome Cadet Gaila is? I feel strongly about this. I mean, Uhura is my one true love, obviously, but we can talk about her later. I want to pimp out the green redheaded awesomeness that is Gaila for a second. I mean. She's from Orion, and she's in Starfleet; this alone is a big effing deal. Because yeah, she gets laid a lot, and she is clearly competent and knows her shit or she wouldn't be there. She's like Kirk, but green and a girl. :P There should be no doubling of standards in her case. She's intelligent and cool and I choose to think she was pretty good friends with Uhura, not just her roommate.

Orion women are freaking sex slaves and objects for the most part, in old school canon, and the writers have speculated that Gaila was in slavery like the others, but escaped. There is so much fic potential here and I would love to know more about her. And of course, as with Uhura, she is being hated upon in some sections of the blogosphere. But! There are people writing her. She and Uhura, two of the few women in the film, are being written about, wtf I love this fandom. I need to share.


[livejournal.com profile] taraljc is hosting IT'S NOT EASY BEING GREEN: THE DOOD, GAILA IS AWESOME COMMENTFIC EXTRAVAGANZA on her LJ. In it, you will find fic recs, comment fic, and the most awesome macro to ever awesome. Go read and play! It cannot survive without us.

[livejournal.com profile] seriousfic has probably the best Gaila I've read yet, and has written Academic Discourse in which there is character study with Gaila at the Academy with Uhura and Kirk and awesome. She also wrote Going Down, most-movie Gaila/Kirk.

[livejournal.com profile] taraljc wrote House Rules, Uhura and Gaila gen that I would draw hearts around if I could.

[livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63 wrote Awkward, more Kirk and Gaila post-movie.

Now. With that said, I think I'm going to see if I can't put Gaila and Uhura into some kind of fic for posting. XP

Here thar be signups! XD You can find more information here about the challenge. And please, do sign up for however many categories you want. *g*

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


Unrelatedly, please send caffeine.

GO OVER HURR and do a quickie poll. *bats eyelashes* Hermione turns 30 this September and [livejournal.com profile] inell, [livejournal.com profile] florahart, [livejournal.com profile] emeraldswan, and I were thinking a big bang fic challenge for her fictional!birthday might be fun.

So, yes. If you'd be interested in potentially participating as a writer or artist (any kind of art) definitely tick the pretty poll boxes! We're only floating the idea for now to see how many might be into it. Also, tick if you'd like to be a beta and/or a cheerleader, whether or not you want to write or do art!

Let's get the poor girl laid for her birthday, kay? ;) Het, femmeslash, threesomes, crossovers, whatever -- or gen, of course. XD
