Day 5

In your own space, talk about your fannish origin story. How did you come to fandom, why did you choose your fannish name, do you have more than one secret identity?

Day Four


Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them.

It doesn't have to be anything complex - it can be feedback for a fanwork or discussing something you might have in common or even simply admiring their icon. The point is to reach out to someone you normally wouldn't and connect with them, even if it's only for the briefest moment.



So, I'm counting this one done, since I've been commenting on all the Twinmas posts on [livejournal.com profile] hptwinsmut and I've interacted with a couple people from the Snowflake challenge that I've never talked to before.

Day 3

In your own space, talk about your creative process - from what inspires you to what motivates you to how you manage to break through blocks. Does your process change depending on the type of creating you're doing?



Really short boring answer... )

Day 2

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts.

I decided to give this a go this year. We'll see if I actually manage to finish it.

Day 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

Christmas

arenee1999: (HP Christmas)
Well, the week went fairly smoothly with 1 minor and 1 major hiccup.

I got sick Tuesday night and felt like crap on Christmas Eve, but we still had a lovely time at my BF's mom's house. Then we did Christmas at our house on Christmas Day, still didn't feel great but was a bit better. I got a bunch of fandom related gifts!!!! A Doctor Who Tardis throw(blanket), a Harry Potter Mischief Managed tee shirt, a Harry Potter Deathly Hallows necklace, Harry Potter Dark Mark stick on tattoos, the Joss Whendon biography (Nathan Fillon wrote the Forward), Jayne's Intelligence Review: The Royal Manticoran Navy and Jayne's Intelligence Review #2: The People's Navy . I also got a couple gift cards and shweatshirts and tee shirts and such. XD

I'm still a bit sick. Now instead of being sore and having a fever I'm sneezing and have itchy watery eyes. Ugh! I've taken an allergy pill and it seems to be helping a bit. YAY!

The major issue was our car. It went to the mechanic on Tuesday and the sway bar was sheared off (no clue how that happened), the CV axle needed replacing and it has to go back in Monday morning and have one of the brake hoses replaced because it's on the verge of bursting.

Being sick has also made me fall behind on doing graphics for [livejournal.com profile] landofart and the two entries I need to do for [livejournal.com profile] hptwinsmut, one of which has to be posted tomorrow! EEP! I shall work on that one tonight.

I also want to thank [livejournal.com profile] kitty_fic for the adorable Christmas card and dragon userhead and [livejournal.com profile] angelus2hot for the year of paid account and extra userpics!!! ♥♥♥

So, once again I seem to be in the minority in that I actually liked the 2-part finale of Series 8. In fact it's one of the few episodes of series 8 that I do like. Overall, I haven't really cared for many episodes since the end of Series 6. The writing has been suffering for a while and I've never really warmed to Clara. Now, The Day of The Doctor was BRILLIANT! It reminded me why I love the show. Instead of using the storyline of that episode and pulling it into Series 8, it's been largely ignored and that's sad.

When Missy revealed who she was, I had another moment like I felt with The Day of the Doctor. I had this huge, stupid grin on my face that just wouldn't go away and I LOVED Doctor Who again!

I'll admit, I do have one major concern with The Master. I don't like the way Steven Moffat has turn the Master into a bat-shit crazy, ultra-evil  asshat. Yes, there was a point to Simm!Master being crazy. The Time Lords messed with him and drove him round-the-twist for their own ends. BUT!!!! After the events in The End of Time and The Master died, when s/he came back that insanity should have been gone!  We should have a Master (Mistress) that is closer to the personality of the original Master (Delgado/Ainley era). That said, I am glad she'll be back again even-though I'm not overly fond of Michelle Gomez. XD


My favorite parts:

Missy: Is everything in order?
The Doctor: Who maintains your heart?
Missy: My heart is maintained by the Doctor.
The Doctor: Doctor who?

*******

The Doctor: Who are you?
Missy: You know how I am. I told you. You felt it. Surely you did?
The Doctor: Two hearts.
Missy: And both of them yours.
The Doctor: You’re a Time Lord.
Missy: Time Lady, please. I’m old-fashioned.
The Doctor: Which Time Lady?
Missy: The one you abandoned, Doctor. The one you left for dead. Didn’t you ever think I’d find my way back?


The Doctor: Who are you?
Missy: Oh, you know who I am. I’m Missy.
The Doctor: Who’s Missy?
Missy: Please, try to keep up. Short for Mistress. Well…I couldn’t very well keep calling myself the Master, now could I?

******

Osgood: Who is she?
The Doctor: You’d never believe me if I told you.
Osgood: Cos I thought she might the Master, regenerated into female form. Your childhood friend, responsible for a number of previous incursions.
The Doctor: That was fairly quick.

*******

The Doctor: I had a friend once. We ran together, when I was little. And I thought we were the same. But when we grew up, we weren’t. Now, she’s trying to tear the world apart and I can’t run fast enough to hold it together. The difference… is this. Pain is a gift. Without the capacity for pain we can’t feel the hurt we inflict.
Danny: Are you telling me, seriously, for real, that you can?
The Doctor: Of course I can.
Danny: Then shame on you, Doctor.
The Doctor: Yes, oh yes.

*******

The Doctor: Thank you. Thank you so much. I really didn’t know. I wasn’t sure. You lose sight sometimes. Thank you! I am not a good man! And I’m not a bad man. I am not a hero. And I’m definitely not a president. And, no, I’m not an officer. Do you know what I am? I… am… an idiot, with a box and a screwdriver. Passing through, helping out, learning. I don’t need an army, I never have, because I’ve got them. Always them. Because love, it’s not an emotion… love is a promise. And he will never hurt her.


******

The Doctor: Of course. The world’s darkest hour. And mine. Where else would you be? Thank you.

*****



Oh, and the smooch between Missy and The Doctor. XD Oh, come on! Even though I've only ever actively shipped Three/Master, I am a Doctor/Master shipper at heart!

Oh!!! And in one of the graveyard scenes if you watch closely in the background there's a Weeping Angel. Likely an unintended consequence of filming in a cemetery, but I squeed a bit anyway.


So, yeah. For now Doctor Who = ♥ ! I fully expect that to change during the next series because I have no faith in Moffat anymore. It's definitely time for some new writers.
arenee1999: (Snape/Lily-Always)
OMG! I'm feeling a bit overwhelemed with the amout of stuff I need to be reading!

[livejournal.com profile] hp_sexstars started posting today; [livejournal.com profile] interhouse_fest, [livejournal.com profile] hermione_smut, [livejournal.com profile] hp_crossgenfest and [livejournal.com profile] luciusbigbang are all posting as well. A few days ago I got the irresistable urge to re-read [livejournal.com profile] batsutousai's Abandon/Reclaim, which of course reminds me that she just finished posting Stand Against the Moon, that I've yet to read and I have a dozen or so fics on my kindle that I haven't read yet.

And I must mention that the first 2 [livejournal.com profile] hermione_smut enteries are crossovers with MCU and Doctor Who!!!

This doesn't even cover all the lovely stuff that was posted in October that I haven't had a chance to read yet either, or the books that I'm behind on. I have Written in my Own Heart's Blood (Outlander), Skin Game (Dresden Files), A Shiver of Light (Merry Gentry) and A Call to Duty (Honorverse).
arenee1999: (Technobabble)
Ok, so I'm having an odd problem with my Kindle. While I'm reading, when I 'turn the page' what I'm reading closes, the home page comes up and I get a pop up saying 'The selected item could not be opened. If you purchased this item from Amazon, delete the item and download it from Archived Items.'  It's really starting to annoy me.

Anyone one have any idea what's causing it?

Halloween

This year was ... odd. We normally get 2 large bags of candy from Costco/Sam's Club and end up giving most of it away. This year we had a total of 20 kids. We had at least double that last year when it was raining! Plus it was a Friday, no school the next day, so we thought we'd have tons of kids!

What's even weirder, none of the kids were really dressed up. Most of them either had a bit of face make up smeared on (but as no recognizable character or pattern) or had a Jason Mask with make up splotches on it.

We're slightly confused.

I did manage to get 7 of the new dragon eggs on Dragon Cave, plus made a Zombie, so I'm quite happy about that.
arenee1999: (Fanfic)
This will likely be my last rectober post. It's going up today because I won't have any time to post tomorrow. All these recs are [livejournal.com profile] samhain_smut entries from previous years. This is just a sampling, there are plenty more lovely fics over there. Take a look through the masterlist from each year to make searching easier. :)


6 Halloween /Samhain inspired fics )
arenee1999: (Fanfic)
None of these are Harry Potter fics! :) They are all crossovers and from a myrid of fandoms.

Seven fics this time ... )

These are all WIP's and all of them can be considered abandoned at this point. However, they are still really good stories and deserve some recognition. Obviously I love them or I wouldn't be recommending them.

They are also some of the longest fics I have ever read!

5 recs this time )
arenee1999: (Fanfic)
Title:Unguarded
Author/Artist: [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore
Pairing(s) Draco/Albus Severus
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 15,030
Warnings: Shaving (facial) kink, Age Disparity (43/17)
Summary: Staying with Scorpius for the first time proves to be more eventful than Albus expected, right from the moment when he walks in on Mr Malfoy shaving.

Why I loved it:
It's so unbelievably HOT it melted my brain. No seriously. Go. Read.


Title:Portus
Author/Artist: [livejournal.com profile] eidheann_writes
Pairing(s) Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,846
Warnings: Exhibitionism
Summary: It was just a stupid training exercise; why did he have to be paired up with Malfoy?

Why I loved it:
This is Harry and Draco at their best really. They're tired and dirty and wet and supremely annoyed and they can't stop picking fights with each other and it just keeps building until they're horribly horny and can't keep they're hands off each other. What could be better?!?


Title:Come For Me
Author/Artist: [livejournal.com profile] frayach
Pairing(s) Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,663
Warnings: Watersports (Important! See author’s notes), fleeting mention of H/OC infidelity, a brief "threesome," gender-bending fantasy role-play – and a ridiculously happy ending.
Summary: After Draco is paralyzed in an accident, he and Harry discover a new way to make love.

A/N: You may think you’re squicked by “watersports,” but this is NOT your grandmother’s watersports kink fic; in fact, I’m even reluctant to call this a “kink fic” at all (although it definitely is very very kinky). This is a romantic story that features a new way of making love when one of the partners has suffered a severe spinal cord injury and can no longer have a "traditional" orgasm. Until now, I’ve stayed away from reading & writing watersports fics because they so often involve humiliation, which I don’t like unless done exceedingly well. There is no humiliation in this story, only intense desire and a will to overcome any kind of adversity for the sake of love. *blushes at own sappiness & hides under bed* So that's what the fic is. What it is not is a "disability kink" fic. There is no fetishization of disability and no weird & creepy sexualized power dynamics related to disability.

Why I loved it:
The beginning is so heart-wrenchingly angsty. Then it's just beautiful and romantic and HOT as hell. I am such a sucker for fics that combine all of that into one story and this one does it brilliantly.

So, in my effort to become more active on LJ I have rejoined [livejournal.com profile] landofart, which means my graphics comm will be getting some use again. :)

My migraines are limiting the amount of tv I can watch, so I haven't really started many new shows this year and I cut back on some of the older shows as well. Even with that however, the list of what I'm watching is a bit unmanageable. *g*
The list and my thoughts on the shows )
arenee1999: (Fanfic)
Title:Love Like a Sunset
Author: [livejournal.com profile] snarkyscorp
Pairing(s): Harry/Scorpius
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 20,713
Warnings (Highlight to view): *ADW: 45/19, some homophobia but that's what the fic deals with ;)*
Summary: The Wizarding community in Britain is a very conservative place. Scorpius is the leader of a rebellious group of queer young folk, out and proud and pushing as hard as they can against the strictures of their society. He's the most over the top, wild, flamboyant man that Head Auror Harry has ever met. Scorpius might as well walk about under a giant sign that declares him the gayest man in Britain (and once, he did). Harry is terrified that Scorpius will figure him out, but, god, he can't stop thinking about what might happen if he did.

Why I loved it:
This could have turned into crack!fic so easily and it didn't. It beautiful and real and brilliant.



Title: The November 9th Letters
Author: [livejournal.com profile] oliversnape
Pairing(s): Gen
Rating: PG
Word Count: 5,513
Warnings: None
Summary: Every year Harry Potter writes a letter to his second son, who is growing up surrounded by friends and family, new and old. Ignores a good chunk of the epilogue, happy and light.

Why I loved it:
This type of story isn't usually my cup of tea, but it is adorably sweet and the ending put a huge smile on my face.



Title: The Love of A Good Wizard
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sweetsorcery
Pairing(s): Harry Potter/Tom Riddle, Pansy Parkinson/Minerva McGonagall
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 75,027
Warnings: Time Travel, AU
Summary: History of Magic has something to teach after all, and two resourceful students decide that the key to having any future at all lies in the past, and in Tom Riddle's heart. Assuming he has one.

Why I loved it:
Wait!!! Don't run away! I know the pairings are a bit shocking but this story is worth it! Come on, give it a try, you know you want to. ;) It's SweetSorcery's most popular story for a reason after all. It even has a happy ending.

I've decided to give this a try. I'll be posting recs for fics that, for one reason or another, aren't on my HP rec list. Including at least 1 post dedicated to seemigly abandonded WIP's. I'll try for 1-2 posts per week with 2-3+ recs per post. I'll also try to slip in at least 1 post of fic for something other than Harry Potter, but really it's been well over a year since I've read anything else. Oops.
