I really need to stop staying up until 4AM every night talking to the Beloved.

I also just watched the Doctor Who mid-season finale and would like to echo the thoughts of everyone else ever re: Lesbian Victorian Interspecies Crimefighting spin-off.

Also, I have been praising the arching and plotting of this show since early season five and omg this episode. Shit boy. So awesome, this is how you do a story arch and lay your groundwork and foreshadow. I can only wonder for how long they have known about and planned for this River Song thing. I mean, this episode wasn't perfect by any means, and I'm totally going to have to re-watch the season-thus-far this summer, but still--the story-arching in this show, unf unf.

ILU forever Moff.

I came across this today and am now going to inflict it on you. I feel like it needs to be warned for, but IDK what.

I'm bored, have a meme.
From [livejournal.com profile] oywidapoodles - When you see this post, draw a TARDIS from memory and post it on your journal. Crayons, No. 2 pencils, MS Paint, it doesn't matter. In celebration of the ~flexibility~ of canon in the Doctor Who universe, no points are given for accuracy. :D

So there's this influential authors meme I've seen a few people do now. My turn.

The Rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen authors (poets included) who have influenced you and will always stick with you. List the first 15 you can recall in no more than 15 minutes, and they don't have to be listed in order of relevance to you.

Under the cut )

ALSO also. I'm going to see Deathly Hallows tomorrow at midnight! Nevermind that I haven't seen a Harry Potter movie since the third one; I AM SO EXCITE.

I would like to propose that I have the greatest Latin prof in the history of ever.

There were several rousing renditions of this song in class. Then he got the university choir to record it.




I think my professor just really likes filking things. He routinely stops mid-lecture to ponder possible songs (and that one time he translated an Elvis song into Latin, which we then sang in class). Or maybe it's just a Latin thing.

ETA b/c I'm not making a new post for this, but

Things Not To Do When Retelling A Classic Children's Story:
1. Make The Opening Line Unintelligible. SRSLY. What.

All right now, we're going to begin. When we come to the end of the story we shall know more than we do now, for he was a very bad goblin!

No, seriously, what even is that.
(cf. the original: "You must attend to the commencement of this story, for when we get to the end we shall know more than we do now about a very wicked hobgoblin")

2. Not Bother To Mention That It's A Retelling. Anywhere.

:/

I have finally got around to watching the latest episode. I feel like a drag show was a legitimate excuse to miss show on Friday (it was awesome! people should dress in drag more often! I talked to people and vodka made it somewhat less horrible!), but there is none for not having watched it earlier this weekend.

In which my stupid ass cable guide spoiled me AGAIN GDI )

I am excite for next week. Apparently the promo was cool? Plz to be having much Cas.

Having returned to the Internet and to paying attention to my flist (so much happier than when I was away from lj, although less school-work done)...

I'm not sure how I feel about S6 so far. On the one hand, I've been enjoying it and squeeing, but at the same time, I've been having some issues with it and my squee hasn't been as great as it used to be. Unfortunately, I don't have the interest or motivation to do reactions atm, but I can't tell how much of that is show and how much is just me, so. Mostly I've squeed and flailed over Castiel and the interactions between Dean and Cas, and then been mostly apathetic for the rest.

In other news, there was a fair trade fest at my uni last week, with lots of really cool vendors and things for sale. On the one hand, I now have no money, but on the other, I have some Christmas gifts and I got this beautiful journal, bound in camel leather and with paper made from cotton waste from the textile industry. I love it and can't wait to use it. I'd post a picture, except it's not much to look at and I only have a crappy cell-phone camera, but it's beautiful plain, unsealed leather that's going to get wondrously soft and floppy over time. <333

I've been tagged for a meme, too, but I'll leave that for when I'm not procrastinating on an unstarted essay that's due on Tuesday. And all I want to do is go sleep for 24 hours. And that's not even an exaggeration. *headdesk*

And now I must express my love for this gif, because, as with Like a Boss, I must be the last person to find out about this meme.


Although I think I've been too influenced by the people I know who would complain about the of "everyone" instead of "errabody".

Fuck Latin homework, I'm going to sleep before I keel over and drop my laptop.

NB: I am a massive spoilerphobe. All spoilers contained herein have been invented wholecloth.

Why do people feel the need to post spoilers in Twitter?

 Spoiler warning. How do you all feel about Dean marrying Lisa and then finding out she's demon!Mary (and has been all along)? 

SPOILER! Yay! Set photos of Marksha and the YED in 6x05!


IT DOESN'T WORK. My eyes have already seen the rest of it.

Venting done. Have a meme or two!

Visit www.TheRandomAct.org to see a special video message from Misha and to support his marathon on September 5th! The money raised will be used to fund Random Acts, three orphanages in Haiti, and flood relief efforts in Pakistan.





This is Misha Collins. I'm happy he's real.

I shouldn't even still be up at this time. But I am and I can't not pimp this. I know I joke a lot about Misha not actually being a real person because he's so awesome, but I'm really happy he is. *actually tearful*

And it makes me feel bad about not having joined at http://www.therandomact.org/ yet because I could have and should have when Minion Stimulus first opened. I love volunteering and I hate that I'm letting my own Issues get in the way of joining the cause and donating money.

Basically, I love you forever Misha Collins.

So the other day, there was this fandom!secret about how anon didn’t want the Voyage of the Dawn Treader movie because then people would do awful things like ship Lucy/Eustace (icky incest) and Lucy/Caspian (ew pedo). For one thing, I shipped Lucy/Caspian when I first read the book at, like, eight. But my immediate thought was of Reepicheep. Who was my favourite character and who my wee little self may or may not have shipped with both Lucy and Eustace :D. So congratulations anon, this is your fault.

Also, I’m so excite for the Dawn Treader movie, even though Prince Caspian was a total disappointment. Dawn Treader was my favouritest book. REEPICHEEP! THE DRAGON! DEATHWATER ISLAND! THE DUFFLEPUDS!

GUISE, GUISE, HOW INCREDIBLY FAIL AM I?

So I just went to visit [community profile] backtoschool to check if they had a fic header layout, and I realised that the deadline is 20 JULY. Not June. OMFG I have been working so frantically to get my fic done on time and adslkjag. In all the times I have visited the comm, how have I never noticed this?

\o/ Now I have time to do the awesome WWI university AU that I wanted to. Not that this isn't going to cause new problems what with BigBang bit still, \o/\o/\o/.

Now I'm off to write the crack!fic that I've been putting off because of the university AU HARMONY HARMONY <3
solitarysloth: On a black background, a man standing in a ring of fire (Writing is Hard)
So I just watched Razorback. I watched it because of the info: "Likely the best movie ever made about a man-eating hog". This is pretty much all the description it needs.

It was a fun bad movie. There was the deus ex pig, saving Our Strapping Hero from a moral conundrum; villainous Australian rednecks (oh, the clichés); and a camel. Not enough explosions, though.

There was also surprise!misogyny, in the form of a (pregnant) woman whose only purpose was to be almost raped and then killed, thus bringing her husband, Our Hero, to Australia to avenge her death. This was less fun.

All in all, I'd rather go watch Stonehenge Apocalypse again. <3

In more exciting and fannish news, I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang. That was probably a bad idea, but I'm too busy worrying about my SPN university AU to get worked up about it yet. Give me till next week.

My to-do list is now basically writing and replying to comments. I'm getting better at being able to post and participate in fandom in certain situations -- when I can convince myself that I'm just 'throwing things out into the aether'. Less better when I'm actually talking to someone or have to reply, because omg I must impress them and not make a mistake ever. Which causes even more problems when I end up replying late salfkjs;a. ISSUES, I HAZ THEM. (This is also possibly part of the reason I identify with Dean over Sam, but that's a whole nother post.)

GOODNIGHT FLIST! GOODNIGHT MOON!

ETA: I may have fallen asleep before hitting post. Oops.
Also, I have not actually turned capslock off since STONEHENGE APOCALYPSE, idek.

So I just spent the last two hours or so making icons. It was fun, experimenting with layers and filters and stuff. I've never really done it before, but I can see why people do this. If I find somewhere to get good screen-shots, I'll probably try it again sometime.

I'm sure I'll hate them in a few days, but I'm putting them up here anyway, so they're there. They're in the order that I made them; it's kind of interesting to see how much I improved just over the course of these three.





I've always loved three-toed sloths.

Feel free to steal if you happen to desire an icon of a sloth. Pictures stolen from various places on the internet via google image search.


ETA: You can download Portal for free until May 24. Seriously. :D

YAY! My laptop, whose name is George, is back from repairs! \o/\o/\o/

He now has an enter key and a shiny new keyboard. Also, there are no longer wobbly bits being held on by tape.

I am never lending anything to my sister ever again. She dropped him. Down the stairs.

Now that I have proper access to a computer and a full keyboard, I no longer have any excuse not to write and reply to comments. Feel free to kick me if I am being negligent in these things.


Also, I am starting to notice the Sam/Dean subtext when watching episodes. This has never happened before. I suppose this is what I get for having Sam/Dean people on my flist. Luckily, I can multi-ship anyone but Castiel. For some reason I can only ship Castiel with Dean (except for crack, sometimes, but not if Dean ever appears in the fic). I don't understand, I just accept.

This is my first entry here. You can tell because there's nothing underneath it. That's because posting is ~scary.
