[TGW] looking at life through a loaded g
there's a life across the river, one direction, pg-13, harry/louis though definite ot5, ~5k. “We’re going to live forever,” he bellows at the other boys, his voice not his but entirely his at the same time, a lions roar and Harry’s own shout combined. They smile and they cheer and they all believe it so it’s true, it’s real, it’s them.

There are errors in this probably. sorry.

The roar of the crowd transforms him into a different beast, with sharper teeth, a better voice, a different, brighter sort of energy but its rooted in him.Collapse )
15th-Mar-2011 05:55 pm - TSN RPF fic: ever cross your mind.
[TGW] looking at life through a loaded g
Hey, so I'm not dead, I just repeatedly use this thing to store private entries of fic snippets? Also, I am bad with checking my flist. I am breaking my radio silence to post...TSN RPF fic. You guys, I adored this TSN but I think I love Andrew/Jesse more.

Title: ever cross your mind
Rating: PG-13. Ish. Nothing really bad here, folks.
Word count: ~11,000(!!!!, WHAT IS MY LIFE)
Characters/Pairings: Andrew Garfield/Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Joe Mazzello, Justin Timberlake
Summary: AU. Wherein Jesse works for in an office and Andrew is the new guy, complete with dollops of fluff and angst and neuroses. New guy walks in behind her. Jesse’s just taken a sip of coffee and tries not to choke on it. He’s tall and thin, with the most ridiculous poofy hair and the biggest eyes Jesse has ever seen. He’s got a massive grin on his face and he looks like he’d rather be skipping than walking or something equally ridiculous. Jesse’s heart does something funny in his chest.
Author’s notes: Written for this prompt on the TSN kink meme. I had so much fun writing this, you guys. It is also the sappiest thing I have ever written, I am pretty sure, but I don't even care. These boys are adorable ♥. ALSO, WHATEVER, RPF, IDWIW.

Obviously not. Eyes have signposts so you can find your way out again.Collapse )

[Doctor Who] I will say this only once
Because my family is back from Ibiza things have taken a turn to the bizarre at the Lennox household.

My brother basically came back and decided that the way to make up for being separated from his toys for a whole fortnight was turning the living room floor into some kind of obstacle course. There are Bionicles to the left, and Star Wars toys to the right and all over the place are tiny bits of lego which hurt like a bitch when they dig into your heel. It is a truly awe inspiring spectacle, but it's also extremely annoying.

The other day I got seriously annoyed with it and everyone's constant need for noise. There are six of us, so I suppose it's difficult but it really does my head in, especially after two weeks of quiet.

So, this happened while I was trying to read the other day:

PAUL (my brother): Crash! Crash! Wallop! TAKE THAT, RED BIONICLE. HAHAHAHAHA.
ME: Oh my gosh, please be quiet.
PAUL: *hits toys together, throws a Lego helicopter in my general direction and laughs maniacally the whole time*
ME: *flouncing towards the kitchen* I hate you all! Go back to Ibiza! I need a cup of tea!
MUM: And a Valium?
ME: *glaring* I hate you all.
MUM & DAD: *laugh in unison*
ME: No, really, I hate you all and sometimes I have very nice dreams were I don't live here. Sometimes, you are dead.
DAD: *lifts a pineapple, threateningly* I will hit you with this.
ME: Go on. Make my day.

AND THEN HE HIT ME WITH A PINEAPPLE. It was the strangest thing and when I told my friend she didn't believe me.

(Also, as embarrassed as I am to admit it I really am as dramatic as I make myself out to be. And I think it probably seems really mean out of context, but in my family it is basically a free-for-all and everybody mercilessly mocks each other. Hence, my incredibly thick skin with regards to most things.)

I've also begun working on a new novel (original). It is not going at a great rate, but I like the world and the characters are intriguing and right now it is my baby and I spend a lot of time daydreaming about events that will happen or did happen and how the characters reacted etc to get a better handle of them.

Additionally, in the past couple of days I have read a ridiculous amount of novels. I will probably post about them because I loved all of them and I want people to read them (FEED BY MIRA GRANT. OH MY GOSH, FEED BY MIRA GRANT <333). So, yet again, I have been kind of avoiding the Internet which means I am behind on my f-list and all that. It seems insurmountable right about now, which is probably because I am tired.

[Glee] dynamite with a laserbeam
I have literally spent the past couple of weeks in stress hell but exams have been over for a week now, so that's good. My entire family left for Ibiza last week and I've been home alone with two dogs. It's been quite good, though I've done next to no cleaning and I really should.

I signed up for an AU bingo card because, well, most of what I write tends to be AU and I like prompts every now and again, especially ones that leave a lot of room for interpretation. So!

[TGW] looking at life through a loaded g

I kept trying to revise but only half managed it because Germany v. Australia was just...epic. I felt bad for the Australians but the Germans were really, really good (Muller's goal was fucking FANTASTIC). Sorry, Australia. (Fact: after the fourth goal my mum got up and walked away because she said there was no point watching it anymore.)

OH GOD, ROB GREEN. That's basically been in my head all day, or rather since that moment in the England v. USA match. England, you weren't bad but Green, that was a rookie mistake. I know better than that--body behind the ball always. Always. I always feel worst for the goalies because players upfield can makes mistakes and they have other people to cover for them but goalies--a mistake and that's it. Unless he's brilliant, his career is ruined. (Also, I am still a bit wtf over the fact that he got picked because West Ham near got relegated and let in a ton of goals and just, I don't even know. Whatever, I am not a football manager.)

Regardless, come on England! I will support you madly until you are kicked out. I am praying that they win their group because England v. Germany would just be ridiculous and my hear couldn't cope.
12th-Jun-2010 05:27 pm - hot tramp, i love you so.
[Merlin] Morgana is kind of awesome
Comment and I will give you ten actors and ten actresses. Then post in your Livejournal with your favorite films of theirs.

I got a list from sellthelie. I...rambled a lot under here, I can't help myself. It's kind of embarrassing.

Actors!Collapse )

[Glee] put your love to the test
I have stuff I could, should and will be doing and a ton of stuff online to do after that which I should be tackling first but I watched this and just, wow.

Lady Gaga, I love you but half the time my first reaction to anything you do is: L-O-FREAKING-L.
[Doctor Who] The Doctor and his TARDIS
Doctor Who, you have made me cry far more than I would have liked to this series. Please stop now.

Seriously, I cried about this much at Being Human and that's significantly darker and has a ton more depressing moments!

Also, I don't mean it, please keep being awesome and making me emotional <3.
4th-Jun-2010 12:05 pm - get on your knees, hands up.
[Glee] no sung unsung no wine untasted
I had my first exam yesterday. It was biology and it didn't go as bad as I thought it would. The essay question was on enzymes so it was a frigging gift. Mind, it was on what affected rates of reaction with graphs and you then had to name the independent variable so if you didn't know what each would look like on a graph you were pretty screwed but I thought it was a lovely question.

The rest of the paper was okay. My PCR question came up! I freakin' love PCR, I swear. Some of the practical questions weren't as nice, but I don't think I failed--I'm pretty sure it was at least a B. My problem is I know the theory but when it comes to applying it I'm not as good--hence, why sciences and I don't always get along. Because around 30% of the paper nowadays is applying knowledge to practical situations and it takes me significantly longer to work out a half-decent answer. Eh, it's over with now.

There's been a lot of wank about female characters and females in general in my fandoms lately. The most recent is over Amy Pond from Doctor Who, but recently I've seen: wank over Gwen and Morgana from Merlin (I know there was been Morgause wank but I just...I will not even go looking, I will avoid it because I have had it up to here), wank over Rachel from Glee, wank over my favourite female characters (hint: basically all of them) in Supernatural. I'll be honest, the wank over the female characters in Supernatural is hardly unexpected given fandom's tendencies but that doesn't mean it doesn't make me extremely sad about the state of society. (Add this to the Wincon disaster recently and the wank over Misha Collin's wife apparently not being pretty which just, honestly, people? Really?) For flip's sake, there was something on Fandom Wank a while back about people cosplaying as Disney Princesses and showing a bit of cleavage and suddenly they were all whores because how dare they show cleavage? Disney Princesses are pure and innocent and virginal and would never!

Fandom and Internet has not been as fun as it normally is--or, ranting about treatment of female characters and glee about how awesome the people I know IRL about feminismCollapse )

I love music. And I love pretty pictures. So have a music/picspam!

This is mostly going to be my music girl crushes of the moment. Some of these I've been listening to for a while but feel that more people should know of them and some are brand new.

For photos!Collapse )
27th-May-2010 12:22 pm - Glee fic: By the Trail of the Dead
[Glee] through accepting limits
Title: By the Trail of the Dead
Genre: Gen
Rating: R for violence, language, gore
Word count: ~3500
Characters: Kurt, Quinn, Rachel, Puck, Finn, Mike—basically all the glee club is and will continue to be featured.
Summary: The zombies come on a Tuesday, just after third period.
Spoilers: Up to and including 1x20, "Theatricality"
Author’s notes: Written for the prompt "Glee, any, who knew that zombies are extra-sensitive to high-pitched sound?" over on the Zombie apocalypse meme. Originally posted here. This is unbeta'd and therefore any mistakes are my own. This is a WIP but will be updated.

“Maybe. I don’t know. It sounds stupid.” She pauses then chuckles. “This whole thing sounds stupid, though. Zombies attack McKinley High. There are places with far more succulent brains, I’m sure.”Collapse )
[Glee] no sung unsung no wine untasted
iTunes was being a complete dick during the week and so far the only media player I've found bar iTunes that I like is MediaMonkey. It's actually better than iTunes, I think, and because my iPod only syncs with my computer really and not the laptop I uninstalled it. But--and this is really sad--it annoys me that MediaMonkey doesn't scrobble with last.fm. Like, it really, really annoys me because I like keeping track of what I listen to! It's pathetic but I had a D: face for about an hour.

Then I realised I could listen to Demi Lovato or Selena Gomez and it wouldn't scrobble. Momentarily happy but then I realised HAHA, I actually really like the songs? (Okay, so I only have one by each but PFFT.) Also, I refuse to be embarrassed by any of the music I listen to, so *shrugs*.

I'm really into Broadway and musicals right now. I love them anyway, always have, but every now and again I go off them but exams are upon me and I've been playing them while I revise. I forgot how much I love Chicago <3333. It makes me want to hunt down the DVD--I remember the Cell Block Tango being flipping amazing in the movie. Also, I admit it, Kurt singing "Rose's Turn" on Glee made me bounce about in my seat and clap my hands and then try and find my copy of Gypsy.

Speaking of, Glee talk! Spoilers for this week's ep.Collapse )

So, go! Write! Prompt! Pimp! It shall be awesome.

[TGW] looking at life through a loaded g
Yesterday, a bunch of us headed to the cinema to see Iron Man 2.

Spoilers!Collapse )
[TGW] looking at life through a loaded g
Ha, so basically I really love Doctor Who. Like, a lot. I haven't talked about the new series because I don't know how I'm supposed to express how much joy I experience when watching it without keysmashing and then I feel like I'm not actually expressing how much I love it? I don't know. Anyway, I have a plan! For a long story! Well, a moderately long one but at the same time I kind of don't want to write it because it will be messed up by canon no doubt.

So, in the meantime I wrote this. It is short and silly and brief and without a beta. Mostly I am writing this because I am excited for Rory! He's been kind of awesome.

Title: Natural Phenomenon
Genre: Gen.
Rating: U
Word Count: ~ 400
Summary: Rory and Amy, aged seven. Amy attracts trouble like picnics attract ants.
Author's notes: Has not been betaed. Therefore, any mistakes are my own.

Amy kicked her legs out, the brass buckle on her shoes glinting in the sunlight.Collapse )

That's right, Gatsby essay, I conquered you. I made you my bitch. And I only had to listen to this CD one and a quarter ways through to do it. SUCK ON THAT, YOU UNRULY BEAST!

I'm just really happy right now. Why can't all essays be about literary movements? I like them!
13th-Apr-2010 09:15 pm - oh, she's a diva.
[TGW] looking at life through a loaded g
So, gleebigbang is out of the way and I have never been so happy! I had troubles near the end, but it's all good because it's over, it's done and I can concentrate on other projects. I've signed up for two more writing things but hopefully I've given myself enough time that I can write them without them intruding too much on my schoolwork.

In less than two months, I will be sitting exams. That's kind of scary. I haven't done nearly enough and I realised today that while I know the Tudor guys inside out I need to brush up more on my Tudor dolls. My bio is worryingly all over the place--seriously, I keep finding booklets on the circulatory system, or oxygen transport, or flipping enzymes for the love of God in the back of English files and old notebooks which have, like, two pages left. I really need to sort that out.

In other news, Doctor Who has been awesome! I really like Matt Smith as the Doctor--he's very different from Ten, which I appreciate. I did enjoy Ten, but I was never a rabid fangirl and towards the end it got a little, "Enough with the emo there, pet." DW was always a funtimes show, supposedly. Well, I really don't know if I believe that (look, I'm very emotional sometimes and tear up at the slighest thing. Yeah, even this week's ep.) but regardless. I also like Amy! Currently, my wallpaper is of her because there are no Eleven wallpapers I could find which I liked and I was hankering after a DW one.

OH! And new laptop arrived today! Damn, who's a sexy biiiiitch. It's an Acer with Windows 7 and it's kind of awesome. I'm still playing about with the Windows 7 and the keyboard on this is vastly different from my old HP but I've doing grand so far. *g*.

Also, I am here on dreamwidth if anyone else has it. I also have three invite codes, if anyone should want them. I know lots of people seem to be taking the same names on LJ and DW, but I really wanted a mythology related journal name and the ones I liked when I originally signed up for LJ where all taken, so I grabbed one on there when I could *shrugs*.

I should really post more often, so I didn't info dump.

She is willing to bet, however, that it's all Rachel's fault. Written for gleebigbang.
