On a different note, let's play a meme I just made up game!

"I'm not doing Yuletide this year, but if I was I would have (nominated to ensure they were there, and then) requested these fandoms:" [include requests if you wish!]

It doesn't matter if you want to do it on your LJ or just in the comments here.


NONE OF MINE ARE ACTUALLY YULETIDE FANDOMS. THEY ARE *TOO* OBSCURE CLEARLY ;D (Although I'm thinking since POT is too large to qualify the RPF might be too? But the Myus are different, like the CDrama is :/)


My Four: )

Have done a lot of timelining for fic but no actual writing as of yet. Too difficult working on someone else's computer, no matter that the files are on googledocs XD

Doing a meme practically all so Noey can spam XD

1. Pick a character I've written about before, or know of well from canon.
2. I will ramble until there's no tomorrow about said character. (ESPECIALLY if I get a topic as direction).
3. If you'd like, throw a prompt at me, or pick a situation (trapped in an elevator, stuck in a burning building, in line at the grocery store, in the middle of a zombie apocalypse) and let the fun begin.



P.S - for Noey and Cyn: FIC WISHLIST! Let's use this post for ideas because I'm thinking Christmas gift fic would be fun to do since I'm not working and completely stressed out this year :D




P.P.S - Dude, that's another thing I was thinking; you know how some comms post a prompt a day? I figured between the three of us maybe we could take turns each day and the other two have to write something for it in the comments?

Or else I force you and Noey to get on DW more and watch fic_promptly because each day a theme is posted and you can choose fandom, character(s) and then prompt on the theme XD and we could try to fill one anothers :D

Nobody posts POT ones anymore you see :(

I have replied to three emails this morning; to Nat, Cathryn and Gem, and I'm all proud of myself! I absolutely suck at replying to emails unless I do it right away or I make time to sit and concentrate on it. Don't ask me why - I do love to ramble after all ;)

And if that whole three emails makes me sound popular, I promise you I'm really not. BUT if I went around trying to communicate with all of you guys through emails I'd suck at it anyway so apparently it's okay! ;)

I still need to upload pics of the place. It's just that we've rearranged the dining room(/library because there's no dining table but there are bookshelves :D) and I haven't taken pictures of it and I don't want an incomplete set of pictures or something. I keep pictures of places I've lived for nostalgia purposes!

I also have a few icons to upload. I'll do that now actually! eta; NU ABO icons




Has anyone across the pond been watching Rizzoli and Isles? It's based on a series of crime novels by Tess Gerritsen, whose books my mum reads, but she's never actually read this series (she actually owns all the books in the series but has been reading a different author recently instead). The series also stars Angie Harmon (from Law and Order, which we've both watched) and Sasha Alexander (from NCIS which we've both watched) and it caught my attention because of all the femmslash fic on [livejournal.com profile] femslash_today, so I believe it could be relevent to my interests ;D


Someone did a post about the "Top 5 Fanfics that you Love to Re-read", and I think it'd make an awesome meme because it isn't absolute favourites or best-written (not that they couldn't be both or all three!), but almost like comfort food for fics, so if anyone wants to share their choices I would be interested :D And if I can work out my own I might even do it!

The Rules

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee.





I've never wanted to suffer adverts (or pay for my journal) and so I'm afraid the choices were limited for [livejournal.com profile] mlina picking from my icons. Although there's quite a clear divide: two K-Drama icons, two Criminal Minds icons, and two misc/artsy icons.



My default icon is three characters from the K-Drama Story of a Man looking very sharp in their lovely suits. I went into the drama wanting to see how Philip Lee's second Korean acting role turned out and came out of it with a drama I love second only to Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi (which I have no icons of ONLY because there's *too much* epicness to encompass in 100x100 pixels!). The main character of the drama is the one on the far right, Kim Shin (played by Park Yong Ha). Write-ups make it sound a lot less interesting than it is. I have a pimp post about it should anyone ever be swayed by the icon enough to want to watch it. It is after all, why I keep using it ;D



My other K-Drama icon is of the Princes of Coffee Prince. Princes only in that their service is supposed to be as good as royalty or something (Han Kyul's marketing ideas are beyond me). And after all, if you know the plot - and Coffee Prince must be one of the best known K-Dramas out there - you'll know that one of the princes is a girl anyway. She's up in front looking adorably homely (but just look at some of her photoshoots and HOT DAMN). There's also Hot Waffle Guy on the left, stupid Min Yeop up the back and sexually ambiguous Ha Rim on the right. I would have loved to have 'The Voice' Han Sung in there too, but it's another ensemble package for me. I love the relationships between the workers of the Coffee Prince shop. I suppose I should have included Manager Hong but he wasn't in the promotional pic :P






Both my CM icons are made by the same person. I think I remember not seeing a huge selection and just liking this person's style and choice of subject matter ;D I love the team for the TEAM but I love Emily best and really wanted an icon just of her.

The other one I believe is the scene with Reid showing off his science 'magic' to the girls and Hotch walks in... Ah, I have discovered a write-up of the scene:

JJ: Nothing's happening.
Reid: Shhh watch [the rocket launches, JJ and Garcia scream, and it hits Emily in the head]
Emily: Ooh ow, what was that?
Reid: Oh, I am so sorry Emily!
Garcia: Don't you recognize a rocket when you see one?
Reid: I was merely demonstrating a physics law. I didn't mean to...
Emily: Oh show me!
Reid: Turn around.
Emily: Turn around?
Reid: A magician never reaveals his secrets.
Emily: I thought you said this was physics?
Garcia: He wont show us either. Trust me, it will do you no good to argue with him.
[rocket launches and lands in front of Hotch]
Hotchner: Physics magic?
Reid: Yes, sir.
Hotchner: Reid, we talked about this.
Reid: I'm sorry, sir.
Hotchner: [smiling] You're really starting to get some distance on these things.


The way to win over the ladies of the FBI is PHYSICS MAGIC. Which Hotch can't condone as mother of the team, but finds it adorable nonetheless ;)



Now for some more abstract icons. I have to say I think all of [livejournal.com profile] tomycoffee's graphics work is beautiful and I surfed the posts for hours and hours trying to whittle down what I wanted to use for myself. I so often ended up collecting posts with flowers or scenery, nature and landscapes. But I knew I wanted an icon with books because I talk so often about reading (and writing) and it could be my icon-mascot or something. A lot of books icons are too plain, or included people which for this I specifically didn't want. I also like icons with stacks of books in them but they can be too colourful or positioned in ways I dislike, and in the end this was what I chose for the simplicity.



I love peacock feathers. It's the brightness of them, the flamboyance. To me this icon sort of represents my creative side. For the drawing and art and sewing I really don't indulge in anymore. My overdramatic nature and tendency to abuse smilies in chatspeak and comments to assure myself that people know my intentions (cheeky, sarcastic, enthusiastic), because so often in life I've been told by people that they can't tell when I'm serious and when I'm joking, whether I realise that what I say could be interpreted as hurtful. I also love colour in general and the ways colours can be combined to create different moods and themes and play with it a lot. I suppose right now it could speak a little to my jewellery making (and wearing, because especially for me earrings are my huge fashion statement. The quirkier, brighter and bolder the better).

If you could have me write a fic specifically for you, what would it be like? Fandom, characters/pairing, genre, plot elements, kinks (if applicable)...what's your ideal fic from me?

I was browsing LJs, as I do, and I saw it. Why not? XD YOU MIGHT GET FIC OUT OF IT.

Comment with the name of a female character and I'll tell you why I love her. In return, you can do the same in your journal. (If you want to anyway!)

Okay, I'm playing. Mostly because I'm kind of interested to see who people will comment with! Because the only media I can think of that I mention a whole lot is Criminal Minds ;) But of course there are a million characters out there.

Ask me my fannish Top Five [Whatevers]. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post.

<--- Anyone doing this meme? Coz I am sure I can think up some random top fives right about now.

- Work went surprisingly quickly today.
- Fell asleep for two hours afterwards, though. Annoying!
- Got a Game Boy Advance Pokemon game coming so that I can play it and then ship the pokemon to my ds game XD (Yes, seriously my life is work, eat, sleep, play Pokemon Pearl right now).
- Am still trying to get through my books! I just don't get to read for long before I start to feel sleepy. Which is how I fell asleep earlier today. When I'm done, though, maybe I will ask for some recs ;D

There are some changes about to happen at work because the owners are freaking out about losing sales to the 99p Store. And I stupidly agreed to work Sunday XD I don't know, I just feel like having more money couldn't be a bad thing - mum is talking about buying dad out because he has done everything to make sure the house won't sell, and once he's gone there won't be any issues with getting into the place or saying the neighbours are awful, or that they have a right of way through our garden (with locked gate) anytime.

But I have discovered a new TV show to watch, and I've dragged mum into it. I think it's called House of Tiny Tearaways or something similar. Parents with children who have difficult issues (like aversion to any food but yoghurt, or not being able to sleep unless mum is laying beside the bed). It's amazing to see how often it is the parents and their emotional problems being projected onto the child.

The "You Should Write..." Meme!
my thread here


[livejournal.com profile] anenko asked me to do this, but I may have done it anyway; I like the idea of it because it isn't the usual, "comment and I'll write you your prompt", but more vague. Maybe a fandom you'd like someone to get into and write for, or a genre to try their hand it. I'd be geekily sort of interested to see what people envision of me ;) It's hard to think about being creative these days, what with the work and house-selling limbo, but who knows - a good idea is a good idea!

...Like the Mei-chan/RPF crossover: Sho-chan's (Hot) Butler XD

I am also going to buy some high-powered batteries tomorrow, designed for my camera to discover if it is in fact my rechargable batteries getting too old and worn out, and NOT the camera. So I can take pictures of my pretty masquerade things that I bought from work last week.

THE ANONYMOUS WRITING FEEDBACK MEME


I'm not doing it, because I'm not in a place where I can handle any criticism (and I've already noticed a couple of people getting criticized when I wish everyone could just say nice things or nothing at all), but if any of YOU do it, please let me know in case I'd like to comment ;)

I want to write, but I don't know what. Anyone have any requests/suggestions? Those of you who actually read my fic or know what fandoms I'll write!

(Of course, I'm going to bed in roughly two hours, then I'll be gone for two days, so if you don't get in quick don't be surprised if I don't get back to you XD)

- Just so you know, I do not have the hots for Christian Bale. He's sort of mildly attractive. Too boring for me. I like 'em you know, girly and with painted nails and rainbow-coloured hair (I'm not kidding XD Maybe not all at once, though). I also do not have the hots for Howl. Na-uh. He's a cartoon. I just have the hots for Christian Bale's VOICE. When he said "that's my girl" in that scene I just about fell off the couch in glee.

- This is the sort of shit I randomly spam you with over IM when I've known you for years. And you're not even there:
I was just thinking... What if, there was a universe wherein you could separate from yourself? But only at a specific time. What if one day, you had to make a decision which would alter your life dependingon which way you chose, and your mind split in two over the decision, and so the stress cause your body to split into two people, each making the opposite decision from one another? Becoming different people from the start based on the life they forced themselves into. And would they ever cross paths again? Would the individual choices lead to the same path? I think it would be amazingly interesting to explore.

- I am very sad that G-Mail has been playing me up and freezing upand responding slowly, and so I've had to remove my beachy background and restore the default white nothingness. It's so bright it hurts my eyes.

- [livejournal.com profile] picspammy is evil. [livejournal.com profile] rainscene is evil. The more I see, the more I read, the mroe I read, the more DRAMAS I WANT TO WATCH. There isn't enough time in the world for all this!

- I am pretty sure these batteries, once fully charged will activate my camera! THEREFORE:
Comment with up to three things you'd like me to take pictures of! (I'm afraid the cats are a no-go seeing as they no longer live with me, but I can always improvise with old cat pictures!) I would also beware asking to see "the earring collection" as it must be about a bajillion pairs in the making now. Although you could ask for a random noun/adjective and see if I have them as earrings ;) (Spiders, cherries, blue, striped).

- Also, we can play that one about not knowing so-called obvious things about one another. If there's anything you'd like to ask that you realised you don't actually know about me, do so. I will answer most anything!
