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 [ 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.)


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

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.

*sigh*  Once again, Survivor takes precedence over Show.  On the bright side, it gave me time to finally post this.  I should have finished it ages ago; at least I got it in before the episode in case Cas comes back, I suppose.

Title: Your Eyes Are Open
Rating: PG-13
Characters and Pairing: Dean/Castiel pre-slash, Sam
Spoilers: 5x18
Word Count: ~2900
Summary: After Van Nuys, Castiel thinks Dean is as good as dead. So while he tries to learn to live without Dean, Sam and Dean try to find him.
A/N: Holy shit, I finally fucking finished it! This is the longest fic that I have ever actually completed, which is pretty pathetic, but wow. Possibly I have been playing too much Robot Unicorn Attack because the title is from Erasure's "Always". I'm pretty sure that song is going to be stuck in my head forever.
I totally blame that game for why I didn't finish this earlier. That, and the anon meme, which I just discovered and love.

There was dirt under his fingernails and dust in his throat. )
solitarysloth: On a black background, a man standing in a ring of fire (Default), in probably the worst idea I ever had, I decided to use as a plot generator.  In an even more astonishing develoment, I managed not to get stuck there for the next 24 hours (it took me four days to escape, last time I went on.  I never learn).
I pressed the Random Page button five times and have to use these to build my plot around.
Unfortunately, I didn't realise that a lot of TVtropes is pages for various books/TVshows/video games/anime.

Here's my list:
Super Dickery
Hero Worshipper
A Canticle for Leibowitz
Saturday Supercade

I should have stopped at three like I was originally planning to.

In other news, a local hair salon had this free day where they were training people to do haircuts from some new designer styles.  I have never before done anything with my hair in my life (except for, like, curling and blowdrying it if I needed to dress up for something) and I love my new short hair *bg*.  It's all...short, and floofy, and I can like, shake it around and put wax in it and stuff *seriously in love*.  I was so scared at first to get it cut short, but...*squee*

Also: I hate the world.  tw_bigbang, I so did not need you.  The xf_bigbang is already failing enough.  I'm probably going to end up joinig at the last minute.  Just watch me.
