Since I made Z listen to my terrible prompts, I suppose turnabout is only fair. :)

Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing and I'll tell you something about the story I'd write for that combination (i.e. write a snippet from the story or write not!fic or tell you the title and summary for the story I would write)

1. genderswap
2. bodyswap
3. drunk!fic
4. huddling for warmth
5. pretending to be married
6. secretly a virgin
7. amnesia
8. cross-dressing
9. forced to share a bed
10. truth or dare
11. historical AU
12. accidental-baby-acquisition
13. apocalypse fic
14. crossovers!
15. High School / College AU


In other news, finally cleared up my Firefox tabs (woooot!), or well most of them, and I am speedily watching my way through Leverage, which is surprisingly really fun!

I've also been digging back through my draft folders and trying to start writing more. I was thinking about writing the prequel or sequel to On Her Honor as a Knight (the prequel is Lucy's quest, the sequel is Aravis's), because for some reason that always feels like fall to me, but that's not really happening and instead I just appear to be writing Sarah Jane Adventures/Avengers crossovers. I DON'T KNOW, GUYS.

Firefox still won't let me comment on lj entries? WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON. But IE works okay and someday I will have all my Chrome tabs dealt with and be able to use that instead!

Narnia exchange fic finally happening! Man idk guys my prompt is SO COOL but I am worried about making my fic equally cool. Plus, Peridan seems to have wormed his way in again. Why is it that every time I'm not sure what to do in a Narnia fic, Peridan comes in and flirts with someone? WHY HAVE I TURNED THIS CHARACTER INTO SOMEONE WHO SLEEPS WITH EVERYONE. (Except Peter. For some reason, in the Peridan-sleeps-with-everyone extended universe of fics that are not, actually, in the same universe, Peter is asexual. I don't even know, guys.)

Things at work going okay! But they are also tiring. This whole working for a living thing is kind of weird, honestly. Why can't we live in a distant utopia where I can sit in a cottage on a beach in New England and drink tea and walk my dog? As it is I don't live on the beach or in New England or in a cottage, and I don't have time for a dog. :(

I was trying to write SPN hiatus fic, and then I remembered that I wasn't going to, so I put it aside! Perhaps later you can all read about how Wyrm is a Lucifer girl at heart. Instead I translated some Latin.

Aeneid Six is the best )

Hi everyone I am not dead! Nor ignoring you! It is just that Firefox ate all my tabs of Posts I Was Going To Read And Comment On, although I guess it wouldn't have mattered because Firefox ALSO keeps refusing to let me comment on lj posts???? WHY FIREFOX, WHY. It's the new comment form, that is not really that new actually, but anyway it won't let me click the post button. So it is not my lack of love for all of you! Rather it is technology's lack of love for all of you.

Anyway I saw the SPN finale ages ago, and since then I have wanted to write hiatus fic, except that I don't really have any ideas for it other than things like Harry Potter crossovers where Sam meets Percy Weasley and secret-keeping occurs, or alternatively Sam meets Hermione Granger and geekiness occurs, or possibly even Sam meets Luna Lovegood and is seriously confused.

So instead I am going to try to do hiatus translations, because let's face it, the best journeys to the Underworld are Classical journeys to the Underworld. I mean, if Sam really wanted to get Dean back, the easiest way to do it would just be to find Heracles, because that's just what Heracles does. (Actually Heracles reminds me a lot of Thor in The Avengers/Thor. Lots of muscles, few brains, tries hard but easily confused. If the Avengers were all on a ship to go find the Golden Fleece, Thor would be the one to lose his boyfriend down a well and have to take a break from his adventure to search. And if Heracles ran into a situation in which Hermes had VERY OBVIOUSLY stolen Heracles's inheritance, he would totally not realize it and instead have emotions and/or alcohol while running around with strange women. Anyway.) Because like this one time, Heracles went to visit this king Adrastus. And he was expecting a super giant party, because Adrastus partied a lot, frequently with the god Apollo who was totally in love with him (TERRIBLE IDEA BY THE WAY. NEVER EVER SLEEP WITH APOLLO. Also do not refuse to sleep with him, or be kinda okay with it but then say no. Basically if Apollo propositions you you should just write out your will, because you'll probably be cursed or turned into a plant or killed by a jealous wind or something, there's no way to win), but SURPRISE, there were NO PARTIES.

Dude, said Heracles, why is there no partying? WHAT THE HELL, ADRASTUS.

So Adrastus had to explain that he *had* been having a party, because he had found out a way not to die, but then it turned out that the way not to die was to have your wife die instead, so now the queen, Alcestis, had gone to the Underworld and everyone was super sad and in mourning.

Oh, that totally sucks, Heracles said, I'll go get her for you, then we party!

AND THEN HE TOTALLY DOES. He just like wanders into the Underworld and everyone is like OH NOT YOU AGAIN GDI, and he grabs Alcestis and hauls her back up to Earth and none of this nonsense about no looking back and bargains and tragic breaking of bargains. And the happy couple are restored, and Heracles has a party, and basically what I'm saying is that Sam should look into this.

So...so yeah. So instead of fic I am going to try to do translations of Aeneid Six, The One Where They Go To The Underworld And See Rome's Future AKA Augustus, because AENEID SIX GUYS ASDKASDJ;ALSJD FAVE PASSAGE EVERRRR IN THERE, and also the Homeric Hymn to Demeter, because DEMETER IS A FUCKING BAMF and also I have Clairestiephone feelings.

Dearest Lass aka [livejournal.com profile] twoskeletons! I hear you have had a birthday! It made me think of all our internet adventures together, and how we have known each other by computer for almost five years, ever since you commented on my fic and told me Aslan's breath was probably a drug.

Also do you remember the time you made me an SPN primer and indoctrinated me into SPN, lo, the fandom I said I would never ever ever get into because SPN was too ridiculous, except for how you wrote about angels are messages and you wrote a totally awesome SPN song?

Lass you are the person I turn to for thingstiel and the person I turn to totally amazing desert Calormen Edmund/Jadis/Susan magic fic and for the cowriting of Mary Poppins crossovers.

Lass do you remember the time we met Lassiter from Psych and the time you and Z and Betsy and I saved the world?

All this is to say, dearest [livejournal.com profile] twoskeletons, that if you were a demon I would let you make me a deal, and if you were an angel I would let you interrupt my TV with static messages, and if you were a ghost I would tell Dean not to throw salt at you, and most of all, I'm glad I know you and I hope you have a great year and that there are many more to come!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Guess what guess what guess what! MY BIG BANG IS UP GUYS. The World in the Wood, aka the one where I took Susan after All She Knows of Heaven and thought WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN WHEN SHE WAS GROWN UP AND HER DAUGHTER HAD AN ADVENTURE AND SUSAN AND HER HUSBAND HAD TO FIND HER AND TOMMY LEARNED ABOUT MAGIC.

And...and that is basically the story. Susan remembers, and acts, and totally kicks ass, and Polly has an adventure with a boy named after a vegetable. YOU SHOULD ALL READ IT.

And then you can listen to this AMAZING MIX which Betsy made for it: draw down the stars and it is SO INCREDIBLY PERFECT I CAN'T EVEN.

I...I don't have other things to say. I am trying to read through everyone else's big bangs but man they are all so long! I need a thirty hour day so I can spend more time reading fic.

Lately life has been full of BEING TIRED, although I have been accomplishing many things, such as taxes and big bang and reading some books and going to Target. (WHERE I SPEND LIKE A HUNDRED DOLLARS WTF TARGET, and the worst thing is that they were all boring things I needed like lightbulbs and a broom and a heating pad.)

Have been trying to read through the Narnia Big Bangs, which mainly just means looking at the art and reading Ruth's because time, so difficult to come by!

Also Firefox is not letting me post lj comments? DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS PROBLEM. And I am currently not using Chrome for Reasons (ie I have too many tabs open to deal with them), so...WHAT AM I MEANT TO DO, LJ. HOW DO I COMMENT ANYMORE. WHYYYYYYYYYYYY.

Anyway otherwise things are good! I apologize for never posting, just, ugh, time constraints. D: But I will have too soon because I have SPN feelings. :DDD
animus_wyrmis: (Default)
This week has been all kinds of hectic, and this weekend promises to be hectic in a different way. Which is nice? Maybe?

I have to finish my Narnia Big Bang (oh god oh god), which is at almost 15000 words, and I've got an outline for the rest, and I am handwaving all the research I should have done* but with luck and tea maybe I will finish???

*It is a Narnia fic okay this is a STYLISTIC CHOICE

Hanging out with the cat, just finished watching the latest Glee, which WHAT. Have other people seen this with Opinions? BECAUSE WHAT.

Also! I just started Cold Magic? GUYS THIS IS THE BESTEST BOOK WHY DID I NOT REALIZE IT WAS AROUND BEFORE. IT IS LIKE VICTORIAN STEAMPUNK, BUT MAGIC, BUT ALSO CARTHAGE WON THE PUNIC WARS, BUT ALSO NOT EVERYONE IS WHITE, BUT ALSO THAT MOMENT WHEN YOU REALIZE YOU COULD NEVER, WOULD NEVER, WOULD NEVER HAVE *THOUGHT* TO WRITE THIS PARTICULAR BOOK, AND THE STORY IS SO MUCH BETTER FOR IT.

I...I think I mostly posted to be a Livejournal Presence but that is sort of all I have to say. Um. I will try to be around more? I MISS YOU GUYS. I feel like I only communicate through Lucifer-written D/C fic now. It's a weird feeling.

In honor of it being past Christmas and my decision to go away for Christmas without my darling computer and therefore a long lj absence, here is a story about myrrh. It is a story also about incest, suicide, and things turning into other things.

As told to me by Ovid during a super awkward Latin class )

In other news, I am enjoying the end of 2011 in style, with a bottle of wine and my new cat* and some TV catch-up** and reading. Guys it is the beeeeest.

*I HAVE A NEW CAT, OMG GUYS SHE IS ADORABLE, but she isn't eating anythiiiiiing and I am afraid she is going to die before her vet appointment on Monday. So far she has not eaten: two kinds of dry food, three kinds of wet food, tuna, chicken broth, and beef broth. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT ELSE TO FEED HER. DDD: But if she survives until Monday and the vet does not take her away from me for terrible cat ownership, you will all get a post with pictures of her sleeping in various adorable poses.

**Lol I finally watched the SPN Bobby episode. WHY IS THERE NOT RUFUS IN MY LIFE, and also looooool way to try and tug the heartstrings, SPN. They were not tugged. I JUST WANT MORE RUFUS. Also I am all caught up on Once Upon A Time! OH MY GOD GUYS WTF SQUEEZING HIS HEART UNTIL HE DIES!? I THOUGHT THIS WAS NOT THAT KIND OF SHOOOOOOOOOOOW.

Happy New Year, everyone!

MERLIN OH YOU DARLING SHOW YOU HAVE GROWN. HERE ARE SOME BULLET POINT LIVEBLOG THOUGHTS.

belatedly, watching 4.3 )

OH MAN GUYS, THIS SHOW. THIS SHOW.
animus_wyrmis: (Default)
So I just finished watching the last Sarah Jane Adventures episode and I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH SPACE TO CONTAIN MY FEELINGS.

Guys I just EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS SHOW WAS LOVE, EVERYTHING, and even the end was love except that it was THE END. DDDDDDDDDDDD:

Seriously Elisabeth Sladen HOW WERE YOU SO AWESOME, HOW DID YOU PLAY SUCH AN AMAZING CHARACTER, AND HOW DID YOU MAKE SJA INTO SUCH A WONDERFUL SHOW OF WONDERFUL FEELINGS.

In conclusion I am going to go make dinner instead of going to the grocery store and while I make dinner I am going to reflect on how basically Elisabeth Sladen made Sarah Jane Smith into pure magic.

Finally caught up on the last three episodes of AsCast (yes okay so the first of those aired in February. Whatever, guys, don't judge), and I am not going to name names, but what is with all the Jill hate?

Jill is fantastic and wonderful and jumps into adventures with both feet, and she is shippable with Rilian or Eustace or Tirian or, possibly more plausibly, Lucy or Susan (WHICH WOULD TOTALLY EXPLAIN HER COMMENTS IN TLB. It was a difficult breakup okay!). Furthermore in the movie she should be played by Yasmin Paige (aka Maria in The Sarah Jane Adventures) or else Caitlin Blackwell (baby Amelia Pond) (also it kind of weirds me out that Amelia Pond is apparently meant to be my age...? Are we sure about this? I AM NOT OLD ENOUGH TO HAVE GOTTEN MARRIED AND SHE SHOULDN'T BE EITHER), either of whom would be a perfect fit for a brilliant adventure story.

Clearly, you all need to invite me on to give a spirited defense of Jill. I mean, guys, she actually fights! LEWIS LETS HER FIGHT. ON SCREEN. RIGHT THERE. For this I would even re-read the last two books, that's how much I think Jill deserves.

Also I used to be a Jill/Rilian shipper back in the day when that was a ~thing.

ALSO, has anyone else read the Magician's Book and has thoughts on it? :DDD?

I keep meaning to do a long post with cave pictures but I have such limited internet time it will have to wait.

IN THE MEANTIME.

Guys I am now twenty-two! And I had a most excellent birthday with [livejournal.com profile] zempasuchil and [livejournal.com profile] gold_bluepoint coming up and chilling and cooking and having the best time with me, and then my coworkers took me out to dinner and that was also the best time, and then [livejournal.com profile] annamorphism sending me a book and ALSO A WHOLE BOX OF TEA OMGGGGGGGG GUYS, and then my parents getting me a Kindle!

Also, I have finally gotten all caught up with DW and even watched an episode with the rest of the world.

RIVER SONG )

Is anyone else missing like two weeks' worth of lj flist entries...? Because I appear to me. WHAT, LJ, WHAT.

Anyway I had a most excellent weekend with [livejournal.com profile] zempasuchil and [livejournal.com profile] gold_bluepoint cooking and talking and wandering through caves, and I will TELL ALL in GREAT DETAIL later this week.
animus_wyrmis: (Default)
Guys I have moved in and unpacked and [livejournal.com profile] coyotesuspect is coming over tonight for the whole weekend! I am very exciting, I have grocery shopped and everything!

Some links of interest / what's been going on in my fandoms:

1) Academic Ficathon (I think it is technically essayathon) has been going up at [livejournal.com profile] movementmvt, where I wrote an essay about [livejournal.com profile] coyotesuspect's Odysseus, American. It is called Child of a Distant Father: Sam and Dean as Telemachus and Penelope and is all about how the fic is about a pseudo parental relationship and not a romance. READERS TAKE NOTE. Also, Meto wrote a super brilliant essay on my story Fairy Stories.

You should definitely go and read through them all! They are very interesting essays, spanning a couple different fandoms, and I really enjoyed them all.

2) SOME ANONYMOUS PERSON WROTE A GORGEOUS NARNIA/DOCTOR WHO SUSANFIC ALLLLLL FOR MEEEEEEEEEE. It is called touch the sky with two arms and it is BRILLIANT AND BEAUTIFUL AND HEARTWRENCHING, and really pulls strongly from both canons.

I have caught up on Doctor Who, also, and am enjoying now knowing all about River and all the companions and such. Someday I will even have a post on my Whoverse thoughts!

Return to Fillory in the riveting sequel to The New York Times bestseller and literary phenomenon of 2009--The Magicians.

The Magicians was praised as a triumph by readers and critics of both mainstream and fantasy literature. Now Grossman takes us back to Fillory, where the Brakebills graduates have fled the sorrows of the mundane world, only to face terrifying new challenges.

Quentin and his friends are now the kings and queens of Fillory, but the days and nights of royal luxury are starting to pall. After a morning hunt takes a sinister turn, Quentin and his old friend Julia charter a magical sailing ship and set out on an errand to the wild outer reaches of their kingdom. Their pleasure cruise becomes an adventure when the two are unceremoniously dumped back into the last place Quentin ever wants to see: his parent's house in Chesterton, Massachusetts. And only the black, twisted magic that Julia learned on the streets can save them.

The Magician King is a grand voyage into the dark, glittering heart of magic, an epic quest for the Harry Potter generation. It also introduces a powerful new voice, that of Julia, whose angry genius is thrilling. Once again Grossman proves that he is the modern heir to C.S. Lewis, and the cutting edge of literary fantasy.


OH YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME.

Anyway, Amazon had DW S5 on sale (ish), so I went ahead and bought it as step one in my plan to acquire ALL THE DVDS, which is a thing I have not desired in any TV show ever! BUT DOCTOR WHO AND THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES, I WANT YOU.
