From ladyhadhafang.

Make a post to your journal. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related: fics, picspams, fanmixes, etc, to medium: dvds, books, bracelets, etc, to really big: a new computer, a car, etc. (If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it’s your address or just your e-mail address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you).

Step Two

Surf around your reading list to see who has posted their list. If you see a wish you can grant, go for it! Either make that fandom item, or hey sometimes someone’s trash is another’s treasure, maybe they wanted a leather jacket for cosplaying Jason Todd and you’ve been meaning to give one to a thrift store, etc, etc, etc. .

You needn’t spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn’t to put people out, it’s to provide everyone a chance to give and to receive. There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just… wish and try to fill and you’ll have the joy of knowing you made someone’s holiday special.

Take Which Doctor Who companion are you? (girls) today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.


You're Romana!

Silly Doctor. It's adorable, really, how hard he tries. And he is pretty brilliant, you'll give him that. But he always seems to overlook the obvious--including the fact that he's not the only Gallifreyan onboard, thank you very much. You are always calm and collected, and more often than not wonderfully witty, in the face of adversity. The Doctor knows he can count on you, even when you infuriate him!

:D :D :D

When I wrote last year's au_bigbangs, I vaguely referred to two other fandoms within the stories - for the lulz! - and then amused myself by stuffing as many references to as many others of mine as I could shove in. I always meant to do a proper attribution post, but just ... forgot. But now I've remembered! So here they are. (The citations are in white, so feel free to guess if it amuses you.)

I ranted about Han's skeeviness in ESB for yesterday, so I'm doing the unpopular opinions today! Though probably not for every conceivable fandom.

And [personal profile] tree just reminded me that I have been slacking on my mission to spread memes like a bacterial outbreak, so here are some proper ones.

Memes! )
anghraine: leia in the death star cell; text: distressing damsel (distressing damsel)
I keep running across a not-quite-trope -- an argument -- that I find immensely problematic. I'm going to talk about it now, through my own feminism, which may not be yours. Consider yourself warned for that, along with discussions of violence and sexual assault.

A defense of double standards )


Title: First Impressions (6/13, 7/13)

Fanverse: First Impressions

Blurb: Jane goes to the Gardiners' and Henry to the Collinses'; Henry meets Lady Catherine, Anne, Colonel Fitzwilliam, and (once again) Catherine; many hints are dropped.

Maybe I should just have hatred empowers us as a tag.

It’s rather awkward when you run across conversations you’d really like to be involved in but … you aren’t, and even if it wouldn’t be inappropriate to butt in, it feels sort of pointless. So I’m just going to be passive-aggressive and declare this

Nothing much important today, except I wrote over two thousand words of Revenge. It's probably a bit indulgent, but I'm actually pleased - I've managed to get the PT alternate canon in through occasional exposition and Luke's Jedi training (current unit: clairvoyance). In some ways, it's almost more about the alt!backstory than about the present; the sequel will probably focus more on the present-day characters, but there's a lot to set up. Anyway, I'm a bit gleeful because I managed to include my OFC even though she's been dead for twenty years, hint at the Anakin/OFC pairing, and more than hint at Bail/Padmé.

Come at me, Mary Sue paranoia.

Leia's plotline is finally settling into place, too; I should be able to end this with the coronation like I wanted, even though it wreaks some havoc on the rest of the outline, and fanwank her unexplained loss of authority in ROTJ. Without actually doing to her what ROTJ did. Hint: my post on the slave Leia debate is a pretty strong clue of what doesn't happen. She's not going to end up General Solo's soldier girl, either.

anghraine: luke walking onto a hill, backdrop of himself and the binary sunset; text: destiny awaits (luke skywalker)
So, I'm a huge fan of Mark Does Stuff.  Shocking, I know.

Okay, except for his Sherlock reviews, and that's only because "not interested in relationships = gay!" thing makes me ... annoyed.  Sherlock is one of the only characters that the actor and to some degree the writers have explicitly identified as asexual.  Do you know how many of those we have?  Yeah, like two.  It's one thing to see characters I personally interpret as ace portrayed (either in fic or meta) as sexual or even hypersexual.  Irritating, but when they're all but explicitly asexual, it crosses over into -- extreme discomfort.

It turns out that that awesome paper doll maker has an even awesomer version in beta, or something like that. Anyway, the colours are much more manageable and the costumes are even more involved than before. *glee*

anghraine: from the 2005 p&p: darcy standing at a piano while georgiana plays it (crack!OTP)
I meant to write a Darcy set to accompany Elizabeth's, but after a serious fact or two, just kept coming up with crack.  So instead I deciding to put off the serious fic and embrace the insanity.
