I've been sick SINCE SEPTEMBER IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT'S HOLY. CHILDREN ARE LITTLE GERM FACTORIES. MY LANDLADY NEEDS TO GET A BETTER GODDAMN WORKMAN AS MY ROOF AND WALL ARE LEAKING FOR THE THIRD TIME. I WILL NEVER BE WELL AGAIN. This was a crappy week generally and therefore my December posting meme kind of went out the window. Apologies. Here is me playing catch up...

[dreamwidth.org profile] eleanor_lavish - Tell me about a Losers crossover (or two!) that you'd love to see/read/write someday.

How about Losers in the Old West? Causing trouble and getting up to shenanigans in a world filled with gunslingers and gamblers? Or I think they would fit nicely into the Guardians of the Galaxy world, flying spaceships and fixing engines and getting into trouble planetside, usually in all the bars. Or the Losers on the Enterprise? Good god, man! The possibilities are endless!

But then there is always The Losers running a zoo. Clay is the zoo's overworked administrator who gets funding when there isn't any to be had, gets his team moving, and basically Gets Things Done in a zoo-unfriendly world, but his downfall will always be a pretty face, especially Aisha, a government official doing her damnedest to get them shut down (and who, it will be revealed in the telling of the tale, is the daughter of a bad man who taunted the elephants in Clay's first zoo and was trampled to death, leaving Aisha with terrible emotional scars). Pooch is the logistics guy. He does transport, makes sure the food gets in and the waste gets out. He's the crowd pleaser, the guy who does the tours, and is always able to find the lost kids. He's the one who saves the kidnapped penguin, zipped into a little kid's backpack, and is generally amazing at everything and dealing with everyone else's neuroses. Roque spends all his time in the reptile and arachnid enclosures. Anything that can kill you in seconds flat, that's his groove. He's their bad-tempered Yoda, putting the fear of God into the rest of the team while deftly handing out sage life advise without them even realising it. Jensen would be the monkey guy. And the tech guy. But really he's the monkey guy. With a secret project to get the monkeys surfing the net. Cougar is the silent, dangerous dude who takes care of the big cats, walking in and out of their enclosures like he's one of them. Jensen is incredibly smitten but feels like Cougar is about a million miles out of his league.

Yeah, I would read that.

[dreamwidth.org profile] tassosss - Top five favorite fictional characters from any medium.

Holy moley. What's with the impossible questions? I'd have to say definitely Al Swearengen, Ellen Ripley, and Sarah Connor because they are always at the top of my list. Can I stop there? No, huh?

Is it wrong to say Wolverine? Once upon a time it would have been Spike from Buffy, no question, but he got ruined and then usurped by Angel. (Much like Superman got usurped by Batman when I came of age, then he got ruined with Val Kilmer and George Clooney and then, 'fraid so, with Christian Bale.)

Where was I? Oh, yes. Marty McFly? Am I really going to say Stiles Stilinkski here? Crap, have to say Rocky Balboa. Don't judge. The man is a saint and an uneducated scholar but wise as hell, with a heart the size of a planet, a warrior living in a time that doesn't belong to warriors, and I'll stand by that.

Who do I love more? Dom Toretto or Brian O'Conner? omg Sam Beckett from Quantum Leap. He was the perfect man. Then Dave Lister from Red Dwarf, who wasn't the perfect man, but was the last one. I could totally say David Hasselhoff or Jean-Claude Van Damme as they've both portrayed themselves, but then I would being drowning in cheese, no matter how much I happen to unrepentantly love cheese. Ronon Dex made me happy in so many ways. He would have been such good fucking friends with Rocky Balboa, don't even get me started.

Archer? Because, goddamn, there's a man who lives on his own terms. Pretty much anyone in Banshee.

I may need to stop just randomly listing characters I love now.

Okay. The List.

1) Al Swearengen
2) Ellen Ripley
3) Sarah Connor
4) Rocky Balboa
5) Um, um, um... OH MY GOD I HAVE IT. VENUS VAN DAM. I LOVE HER SO MUCH I COULD BURST. SHE'S SO ON THE LIST AND I THINK THE OTHERS ARE ALL HAPPY TO HAVE HER THERE.

I can't quite believe my own list, but I love them all dearly and very differently. You know there are others, but I'm happy with this list. These are characters I'd follow anywhere, and have.

I can't believe some of the things I click post on around here. Why did you people friend me again?

I am seriously so out of the loop I didn't even know this was a thing that was past the rumour stages. See how it starts off, and you think, okay, then you sit up and you think, WHAT? And this could be like what they did in the Sarah Connor Chronicles, which shouldn't work but IT DOES because it's WHAT THEY DO and they ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT STOP, UNTIL YOU ARE DEAD AND EVERYONE FORGETS ABOUT TERMINATOR SALVATION (EXCEPT FOR THE MARCUS/KYLE FIC, BECAUSE I'LL PUT UP WITH A LOT FOR THE MARCUS/KYLE FIC.)

ANYWAY. WATCH THIS MOTHERFUCKER.

AM I RIGHT? I'M RIGHT. I KNOW I'M RIGHT. FUCKING A.

THE ONLY WAY THEY'RE GOING TO TOP THIS IS TO BRING THE ROCK IN AS A TERMINATOR AND THEY PROBABLY KNOW THAT. SO THAT WILL BE FINE AND DANDY WHEN IT HAPPENS.

I'M GOING TO GET OFF THE INTERNET NOW.

[dreamwidth.org profile] garryowen - Science? I'll request science. Tell me how it's a part of your life.

Uhh, how is science a part of my life? Apart from picking holes in time-travel movies and figuring out where the Hulk gets his extra bulk from when he transforms and why computers in movies always blow up when you spill a drink on them? This is a very good question (which I now wish I had left off my choice of topics for this meme as I'm feeling a bit duhhh), although it may have a very dull answer. In my head, science equates to test tubes and bunsen burners and chemicals and reactions thereof, and yet it has been a lonnnng time since I studied it beyond reading the occasional book or watching the occasional documentary/film etc., so perhaps in the most direct sense it would be how I choose to clean my home. (Is that a weird answer? I think it might be weird.) I gave up on using commercial cleaners a while ago and my staples are baking soda and white vinegar, which is always fun for a fizz and cleans tremendously well (and creates carbon dioxide!), plus won't kill my dog if he decides something absolutely, positively needs to be licked off the floor.

Otherwise, I'm sure there's more in my life that I'm not even thinking of as I don't see it in those terms. More chemistry in cooking, I guess. And I work in a Montessori school, granted with kids that are too young to be actively taught science, but there would be elements of physics and chemistry and biology in there in their very basic forms.

That whole answer made me feel really dumb. :( I miss education and free time! I used to really, really dig physics class! I am old!


You can still ask questions/suggest topics here.

[dreamwidth.org profile] endeni - Favorite quote from a tv show?

Ahh, that would be one of those impossible questions. How am I supposed to pick just one? Would it be something from Angel? Something soul-searching and life-affirming and all-encompassing? Something from Justified, so damn cool it'll chill your drink for you? More likely something from Deadwood, likely Al Swearengen or TB Farnum or Seth Bullock... or Trixie or Jewel or Doc Cochran or Jane. I could just quote the whole show at you if you like. Then, okay, not TV, but there are 80s movies. Ferris Bueller said some supremely deep shit, and don't get me started on Bill and Ted. Then there are androids who have seen attack ships on fire and things we wouldn't believe, knights who say ni, Wayne Campbell, whoa, this is heavy, time-travelling cyborgs with living tissue over metal endoskeletons, undercover cops who are sure and certain that it's not a tumour...

But maybe it's just: That probably would have sounded more commanding if I wasn't wearing my yummy sushi pajamas.

Annnnd scene.

I screwed up my December posting meme already! (Although, really, how not surprised am I?) I forgot to update my list and so didn't realise I had something to write about for December 1st.

[dreamwidth.org profile] veronamay - what's your dream job? How would you spend your days if you could do anything you wanted?

Thing is, I do enjoy my job (classroom assistant in a Montessori school). The other thing is, it's very tiring, not very well paid, I'm starting from the bottom rung of the ladder, and I'm working to make someone else money. The things we do for security. My ideal job would have to be something to do with food. It's my biggest passion, and while there is still a large element of customer service involved, not my favourite thing, it's not bending to suit them. It's like saying here's this thing I made, this amazing thing that will blow your tastebuds away. I made it with my own two hands. Go taste, be amazed, tell your friends, come back for more, leave a tip. I would want to do this on a small scale and yet make oodles of money through some magical process which completely ignores the current economic climate (oh, how I hate those three words).

If I could spend my days doing anything I wanted, I think I would go back to being a part-time English-speaking nanny because it's good to be occupied. Maybe three days a week, then spend my long weekends walking in the forest with the dog, enjoying the markets, making things out of wood, enjoying good food and friends, lounging by my pool which I have bought myself with all the oodles of cash from my labour un-intensive and yet cash-cow small restaurant venture.

Then there would be fic and lovely herbal tea before bed.

WHAT. A GIRL CAN DREAM.

nobody knows I'm a false berry
Avengers: stick together and see it through by [archiveofourown.org profile] torakowalski - Phil/Clint, Phil&Tony, teen. There are many places that Phil would rather be than stuck in a HYDRA base with Tony Stark. FABULOUS. Unexpected Coulson/Stark bonding is my new favourite thing.

Maleficent: a hundred years or more by [archiveofourown.org profile] rufeepeach - Maleficent/Diaval, pining!Maleficent & sleeping!Aurora, PG-13. "I promise, no harm shall come to you whilst I live." - Maleficent never kisses Aurora, believing she has already done more harm than good, and instead resigns herself to watching over the sleeping princess for the rest of her days. So sad and beautiful.

Maleficent: I would be your wings if you carry my heart (or 5 times a Bird and a Fairy spent their night together) by [archiveofourown.org profile] Cuits - Maleficent/Diaval, mature. Just so, so lovely.

Almost Human: The Reasons for Us by [archiveofourown.org profile] starandrea - John/Dorian, mature. The one where John and Dorian become media darlings and a precinct-wide public relations nightmare, all in a single weekend. Oh, all the glorious banter and figuring out how to work together and all the ways that makes their lives more difficult with all those pesky robot rights and the meaning of emotion and who wants what and YES ALL THAT PLEASE.

Aliens: Catch a falling star by [archiveofourown.org profile] Lizzen - Ripley/Hicks, teen. Alien3 AU – Sometimes family is all you have left. Ripley and Hicks and Newt and Bishop being BAMFs and having the story they deserved, you know, the one that would have been so fucking SATISFYING if they hadn't killed everyone off in the first five minutes.

The Good Wife: Outside The Frame (Is What We're Leaving Out) by [archiveofourown.org profile] mardia - Alicia/Cary, explicit. For the life of me, I don't understand why there isn't a shit-ton of people being stuck in elevators together fic for The Good Wife. I just don't. But I'll take Alicia being all competent and giving Cary exactly what he needs where I can get it. (But if anyone wants to write me that Cary and Dianne in a lift fic, go right ahead.)

Terminator: Salvation: The Universe Runs on Auxiliary Power by [archiveofourown.org profile] hollycomb - Marcus/Kyle, mature. Where Marcus loses his heart but doesn't die. I love how hollycomb sees them SO MUCH. She manages to show how Kyle brings out the weakness in Marcus while Marcus sees the strength in Kyle. It's a really nice balance.

Deadwood: A Borrowed Life by [archiveofourown.org profile] Destina - Seth Bullock/Sol Star, mature. "People have made good lives out of borrowed ones before." Very in character. Like a little slice out of their lives.

Deadwood: God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman by Michelle Christian - Doc Cochran & Jewel, teen. Christmas Eve in Deadwood. Jewel and Doc Cochran: best friendship ever? I think so.

Master & Commander: Duende by [archiveofourown.org profile] astolat - Jack Aubrey/Stephen Maturin, explicit. I didn't think I'd ever want to read M&C fanfic, but astolat is scarily good at writing it. Plus this fic has the extra added benefit of them having Special Magic Powers and soul-bonding and the Navy being completely on board with that, which should be the most ridiculous thing ever, but just works SO WELL and I want to read a whole series of books where this is the case. So off you go and check it out.

X-men Origins: Wolverine: I Wrote Your Name Upon The Back Of My Hand by paperclipbitch - Wolverine/Gambit, PG-13. Post-movie, Logan seeks Remy out. OH FUCK YES.

Beauty and the Beast (Disney): Passing of a Winter Love by sophia_helix - Belle/Beast, PG. Not all fairytales get their happily ever after.

I decided, after all, to do the December posting meme, thanks to lots of lovely goings on at [dreamwidth.org profile] theladyscribe's friending meme, which you have probably seen doing the rounds. Hi to my new dreamwidth friends!

14 September 2014 @ 02:39 pm
Hannibal: Shark Tank by [archiveofourown.org profile] xzombiexkittenx - Hannibal/Will, explicit. Will and Hannibal meet in prison. Hannibal is still the Ripper, Will is still a profiler who had encephalitis. Only now they're cell mates. And it's AMAZING. One of those fics I couldn't stop reading. Such wonderful rhythm and flow and details. It never once let up. So easy to buy that this is exactly how it would go between them. Showing the softer side of a pair of dark and complex motherfuckers. Fascinating. Five stars.

Teen Wolf: It's a Sickening of the Heart by [archiveofourown.org profile] coffeeinallcaps - Stiles/Rafael McCall, explicit. In which Stiles, struggling to cope with the aftermath of his possession, finds what he didn't know he was looking for in his best friend’s dad. And it works. Seriously. I promise. Just try it. You'll see.

The Losers: we ain't born typical by [archiveofourown.org profile] paxlux - Jensen/Cougar, teen. The wind's out of the south and Cougar's restless. Lovely. Very in the moment.

The A-Team: Die Vergeltung by [archiveofourown.org profile] rainer76 - Face/Hannibal, NC-17. When Face loses his memory, Hannibal and co. have to retrieve him from the enemy, avoid being shot by him, and convince Face that he doesn't work for the 'bad' guys. Fabulous. Detailed and engaging and in character. I really enjoyed the read.

Avengers: Grass and Gold by [archiveofourown.org profile] thisiswhatthewatergaveme - Tony/Loki, explicit. He lands on Midgard, on Earth, in a time that isn't his, surrounded by hostiles with quick fists and quicker jaws, but he's done something incredible. Something impossible. And he meets warriors in spandex skins and a wizard who shoots lightning from his hands and Loki thinks, This is good, and the Avengers do their best to keep fragile secrets hidden. Ohhhhhhh, this fic. Loki from a long time ago takes a trip through time and visits Earth after the events of the movie. The author makes the changes in Thor and Loki both over their long lives seem so real; then there's the reaction of the team, and... man, this fic. Go see.

Avengers: To Ruin A Strong Tower With The Light Of The Sun by [archiveofourown.org profile] thisiswhatthewatergaveme - Steve/Loki, mature. Steve isn’t ashamed of his imaginary friend when he’s five, because he imagines that everybody has one. But when he’s six, and when he’s eight, and when he’s nine, he talks to Loki less and less, because it’s strange, it isn’t done, it isn’t right, and Loki, with his clever eyes and all that bitter green around his smile, accepts it. Beautiful and strange and sad and terrible.

Avengers: Desiderata by [archiveofourown.org profile] stereobone - Tony/Loki, explicit. Tony doesn't know anything about love. He's convinced himself it's for the best. Where Loki is hit by a love spell and Tony doesn't care. Much. I loved Tony's thought processes, Loki being annoyed and mischievous and a bit out of his depth, and the team dealing, as usual, as only they can in the background.

Crossover: Avengers/Pacific Rim: How to Beat a Kaiju Invasion by [archiveofourown.org profile] mullu - ensemble, mild Tony/Steve, PG-13. The first one shows up about a year after the Chitauri invasion. It takes Hulk, Iron Man, SHIELD and the Army two days to take the thing down. This fic is a hell of a ride. It'll suck you in and not let go.

Crossover: Sherlock/Torchwood/(a smidge of The Hitchhiker's Guide): Holmes vs. Harkness by [archiveofourown.org profile] coinin - Jack Harkness, Sherlock/John, Mycroft/Lestrade, teen. In which Captain Jack gets in a little over his head and is introduced to the myriad joys of bureaucracy, Mycroft is smug, the Guide offers up some helpful advice, John Watson doesn't share, and, in a strange turn of events, Jack doesn't get laid even once. Fabulous. Would pay to watch.

Does anybody have any idea why my lj layout is suddenly all in italics? I didn't change anything and it just decided that what I really wanted was my flist all in italics. I now have the most emphasised lj in the land.

Anybody know of a nice, simple bit of code I need to tweak to fix it? Thank youuuu.

(It's flexible squares, customised, but it's been a lonnnng time since I did anything with it, so if you need any more info, or the code or whatever, I can certainly go and find out.)

Snowpiercer: Springtime in Winter by [archiveofourown.org profile] bosssuet - Edgar/Curtis, teen. Nobody ever really gave Edgar the talk, but he manages to figure the important stuff out with a little bit of help. Very nice. All that fore-shadowing and back-shadowing and all the things we know and Edgar doesn't... yum.

Snowpiercer: Play-Fighting in the Cold by [archiveofourown.org profile] collie - Grey/Gilliam, Grey/Edgar, explicit. Grey's story. From the tail, all the way to the front. Nuanced and clever. This was really something. I think the author really captured the desperate hope and the desolation on the train.

Snowpiercer: The World Apart by [archiveofourown.org profile] eviscerates - Curtis/Grey, teen. Curtis remembers when Grey was born. No one would have missed him then - Either of them. This was beautiful but it hurt.

Edge of Tomorrow: Eternity by [archiveofourown.org profile] Walker98 - William Cage/Rita Vrataski, teen. William Cage spends years in the loop fighting the Mimics. On their defeat he wishes for nothing more than a life with Rita. But he will learn his encounter with the Omega has forever changed him. A lovely story filled with what ifs and maybes. (Although perhaps a smidge terrifying if one overthinks it and lets one's imagination run off into the distance...)

Avengers: But We Can Try by [archiveofourown.org profile] hetrez - Steve/Bucky, gen. Bucky said, "These are love letters, Rogers. You've been drawing me love letters." This is so lovely. Oh, boys.

Avengers: The Last Love Song of Anthony E. Stark by [archiveofourown.org profile] jibrailis - Tony/Steve, explicit. After contracting an Asgardian virus, Tony starts forgetting things. And people. And Steve. omg loved this. It was quite a ride. I loved the strong, hesitant Steve, the landscape the author painted of their journey through Asgard, and Tony's deterioration, how he loses track of who he is, how he doesn't trust how he feels. Beautifully written.

Crossover: Stargate: Atlantis & Star Wars: The Dark Side by [archiveofourown.org profile] astolat - John/Rodney, explicit. "You're not a very good Jedi, are you?" the Sith Lord said. "Oh, excuse me, I am an excellent Jedi," Rodney said. FABULOUS. Silly and clever and dark and just fucking FABULOUS.

Inception: Patience, a Steady Hand by [archiveofourown.org profile] Helenish - Arthur/Eames, explicit. 821 A.D. Arthur is in the nightmare business. Eames is a thief, a liar, and versatile with a pen. This fic should either be a really bad romance novel or a kind of awful non-con slave fic... but it ends up being marvellous and well-rounded and satisfying. Fantastic world-building, and I loved that the author took their difficult beginnings, with some serious problems between them, and managed to craft it into this believable relationship, the two of them finding balance and a good life together.

Hannibal: Slip the Veil by [archiveofourown.org profile] Ningengirai - Will/Hannibal, explicit. He misses me, Will thought. He wanted what could have been, so much. This fic is quite incredible and utterly fascinating. I think the author nailed the characterisation and I can really see the two of them coming together like this. Almost like Hannibal mellowed and Will found his cannibal groove. ... why is this a good thing again? :D

Almost Human: this is the road to ruin, and we're starting at the end by [archiveofourown.org profile] everybodylies - John/Dorian, gen. "How long was I out?" he asks as two men come into focus above him. "Um..." says the one with long hair and sunken eyes, "uh... s-seven years, two months." This was both lovely and a bit heartbreaking. Nicely done.

Teen Wolf: Amor Fati by [archiveofourown.org profile] alocalband - Derek/Stiles, explicit. When Stiles gets thrown into the bank vault about twenty minutes after him, Derek isn’t even surprised. Where they are totally fated to be together, and it's amazing. I love how the author took the idea of fate throwing them together and ran with it, gave it a reason, and let them figure out how to be together. Lovely.

Avengers: Still Better than I Spy by [dreamwidth.org profile] out_there - Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, gen. Stuck in a lift together. AD. OR. ABLE. There need to be so many more stuck in a lift together fics.

Thor: Music of the Spheres by [archiveofourown.org profile] Saucery - Loki/Heimdall, mature. A young Loki takes to visiting Heimdall. Glorious and fascinating. I think I could read the two of them talking for hours.

The Fast and the Furious: It's Hard to do These Things Alone by [archiveofourown.org profile] electrumqueen - Brian/Dom, Brian/cars, teen. Brian doesn't lie to cars. He doesn't lie to Dom either, but that's a newer development. This has a really lyrical, magical vibe to it. I loved the idea, where all the members of the crew are special in their own ways, and it was unlike anything else I've ever read in this fandom.

Summary: When he tried to figure out why Dorian did some of the things he did, John's brain had a tendency to go off into logic loops or stall out completely.

Beta: the marvellous missyjack. Thank you so much for helping me out.

A/N: I've only seen the episodes once, so anything that doesn't fit in exactly with canon, or with the daft order they aired the episodes... accident or design, man, who can tell?

Does anybody work as a cabinet maker, furniture maker/restorer type person, or just work with wood and maybe sell things and manage to make money at it? If so, will you please take a moment and tell an unhappy but hoping for better girl all about it? How you got your experience, any training, if you work for someone or for yourself, stuff like that. Please and thank you. I'd be really, really grateful for any input.

Has anyone ever had a problem where suddenly and randomly a whole lot of sites had bolded text? I'm running the latest firefox on windows 8, and randomly today a whole lot of sites went BOLD. This is intensely annoying as it throws off the eye, particularly on gmail where it now looks like all my mail is unread when it isn't. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling arial (for some reason this is a thing), changing things in firefox options and desktop personalise, and everything else I found in forums and the like, and nada.

Anyone else had this problem? Did you find a solution?

ETA: a system restore fixed the problem. omg such an annoying process. grr.

Who is your Doctor?
David Tennant. Even with all the scenery chewing and the messiah complex. I love him and I miss him and I still have complicated timey-wimey dreams where he comes back and saves all of time and space.

Who is your Doctor's companion?
Very hard to choose. I have a great soft spot for Martha Jones, but if I absolutely had to pick, then Donna Noble, because she won me over so hard, she was so good for the doctor, she came so far, learned so much, and then lost it all. Gah.

Who is your Batman?
Hm. Perhaps the first Michael Keaton, because who knew that would work so well? If not, then Adam West. Ha.

Who is your Cat Woman?
Michelle Pfeiffer was spectacular. But so was Eartha Kitt. But I may have to go with Michelle Pfeiffer.

Who is your Sherlock Holmes?
I think I'm going to surprise myself here and say Jonny Lee Miller. I love how they've played with the SH story, and I think of all the recent incarnations they take themselves the most seriously but also have a great sense of humour (despite how fun parts of the Guy Ritchie movies were).

Who is your fictional female federal agent? (eg, Dana Scully, Audrey Parker, Olivia Dunham, etc)
Olivia Dunham. So strong, so competent, so good.

Who is your Robin Hood?
Is it wrong that I still love the Kevin Costner version?

Who is your Maid Marian/Marion?
Kate Lonergan! No question.

Who is your Bond?
Sean Connery, because c'mon. Although I do like what Daniel Craig has done with him.

Who is your fictional female assassin? (eg, Natasha Romanov, various incarnations of Nikita, etc)
Natasha Romanov methinks.
