*desperately trying to think of something to do that isn't grocery shopping or cleaning or writing* Ah HA, I have it! [livejournal.com profile] fannish5!

5 greatest (or favorite) examples of breaking the fourth wall, or canon material going meta.

Piss on you, I'm workin' for Mel Brooks! )

Jeez, I could stand an update, couldn't I? Well, anyway, over the last few days I took it upon myself to keep avoiding cleaning finally watch Avatar: The Last Airbender. The TV show, of course. I had made it through the second season, but missed the last one- just couldn't get the hang of kids' programming schedules. Plus, I'm pretty sure I was battling through my toughest semester of college at the time. But anyway, thanks to Netflix Instant, I finally got to watch the rest of this amazing show. And it really is amazing. Honestly, it's one of those things where, if you say you don't like it, I genuinely think you didn't get it. Sorry, but it's true, you didn't. Go back and try again. That finale, though- heh, they really went the full Dragon Ball Z on us, didn't they? I knew that field of giant rock columns looked familiar. I'll definitely have to keep an ear out for when the sequel's airing.

Let's see, other stuff, other stuff... I've got Snow Patrol's latest and Amy Winehouse's posthumous album to listen to, not sure when I'll get around to that. For now I think I'll go catch up on The Daily Show and see what this whole Colbert for President thing is about.

P.S. Grimm and Sherlock spoilers )

From [livejournal.com profile] memeseveriwhere:

List your top ten (10) favorite characters from a single anime fandom (whoops, didn't read that quite closely enough), and answer the following questions.

(You know what? I'm gonna go with multiple fandoms. It's more fun that way.)
1 - The Middleman
2 - Mal Reynolds
3 - Elizabeth Burke
4 - Claude Rains
5 - Veronica Palmer
6 - Granny Weatherwax
7 - Michael Weston
8 - Olivia Dunham
9 - Amy Pond
10 - Sherlock Holmes

Some weird stuff under this cut, my friends. )

Wow, I managed not to do a meme for over a month! Not that I was really trying not to- quite the opposite, actually, but still! Sometimes I get annoyed with myself, like I don't have anything to talk about, all I want to do is play silly lj games. But can I help it when they're so fun and interesting so often? No.

Anyway! From, most recently, [livejournal.com profile] visiblemarket:

1.) Comment to this and I will give you 3 fictional characters.
2.) Decide of the 3 whom you would marry, do, and dump cliff.
3.) Post this meme to your journal with your answers.


Two for the price of one! I did this whole meme once a while ago, but it accidentally got deleted, so I half-way did it again later, but, well, it's really one of those memes that demand... I dunno, immediacy. It gets stale if you leave it alone and then you have to start all over. Anyway, for the third and final time, here's this, stolen aaages ago from [livejournal.com profile] hermione_vader:

1. Write down 20 of your favorite OTPs
2. Put your media player on shuffle. The number of the song corresponds to the number of the OTPs.
3. Quote a part of the song that you think has any similarity with the story of the couple.
4. Comment.

Some of them were so far off I had to try again. Some were so spot-on it was scary. )

Grr. All day long my brain's been yelling at me to make another song/picspam for BBC!Sherlock/John using The Burns Unit's All of This in Writing. It may not end up working as well as I think it does, but that's not the main problem. TBH, there are some lines where I really can't tell what the singer is saying, and I can't find the lyrics anywhere online (shocking, I know, the Internet does not in fact know all). So, grr- shut up, brain, just let it go.

Anyway, hey! Looks like I scooped up some recognition at [livejournal.com profile] heroes_faves' Summer 2010 Fiction Awards! More Than Kin, Less Than Kind shares space with some other fics for Best Characterization of Minor/Rare Characters (Adult), and Bad Reputation is in with one other Best Scifi/Fantasy Epic. Thanks very, very much to everyone who voted for my fics- I'm pretty darn proud of those two in particular. And congratulations to the other familiar usernames I saw up there!

Day 17 - A song that you hear(d) often on the radio )
lotus0kid: (tyler b&w)
Yarr, I be in the midst o' makin' a fine beef stew fer the enjoyment o' me and the crew, and a lengthy simmerin' time gives me leave ta' be gettin' on with my lj duties on this most lovely of Talk Like a Pirate Days.

the questions )

Day 15 - A song that describes you )

Aside from the day's musical offerin', me reunion with yon wondrous Photoshop has brought about the creation of a small brood o' icons fer the most honorable and ship-shape o' television programs, Sherrrlock. Should one 'r more catch yer fancy, do be obliged to plunder at will, but let it be known the makerrr o' the piece, or face the edge o' my blade presently.

1. 2. 3.

ETA: Dude, I make effing good stew! )
lotus0kid: (kinda cool)
the questions )

Day 07 - A song that reminds you of a certain event )

P.S. Anybody with any interest in Sherlock and/or White Collar, or pretty much any interest in awesome characters interacting in awesome ways, go now and read [livejournal.com profile] sam_storyteller's Paper Chase. I won't say any more, but I will leave you with a quote:

"You two," Peter told them, holding up a hand. "Be careful."

"I'm always careful," Sherlock assured him.

"I try very hard," Neal said, which was at least honest.

*sigh* So an average/good day has taken a turn for the crappy. I was trying to defrost some chicken for dinner and managed to burn my righthand ring and middle finger. I'm plucking this out with my left hand while the other holds on to a towel with ice. It's kind of amazing how much the cold helps. It's seriously like "*take the cold away, wait two seconds* !@#@$##$@!@Oooowwww! *put the cold back on* Ahhh..." And I'm waiting for some painkillers to kick in. I wonder how it's going to be working tomorrow...

Anywho, I had other stuff to talk about, but now that my words per minute has been so effectively hobbled, let's just focus on what's important, eh?

'Reply and I'll give you four fandoms. You then have to make an entry writing about your favorite character from each fandom, and why.'

[livejournal.com profile] hermione_vader gave me Discworld, Burn Notice, Dollhouse, and Sherlock.

Not easy choices, any of these. Some spoilers )

Heh, I'm worried about work tomorrow- how am I going to sleep with this damn thing? My ice cubes are going away and it still hurts like hell. *sigh* I guess I'll figure something out.

Man, what is better than a beautiful lazy Saturday morning after a long week of work and various running around? I've had my scrambled eggs, my bagel (half margarine, half Nutella- yummm), and now I've got a cup of the fantastic jasmine tea my sister sent up from Florida. I've got all three Sherlock episodes queued up for viewing, and I haven't quite decided if I'm going to attempt a beef stew today. Hm. Also, I finally caved and bought six months of paid lj time. So, uh, yay extra icons? Heh, that was really all I was interested in. I dunno, maybe I'll fiddle around with my layout.

Anyway, my creepy lj-lurking has found me a meme!

List the first five OTPs that come into your head.
1. Peter/Claude
2. Maj. West/Mirror!Wendy
3. Wash/Zoe
4. Alice/Hatter
5. Shawn/Lassiter

And answer some questions... )

It is a good one. More wonderful Cracker/Armored fic from [livejournal.com profile] visiblemarket- those boys, it's so interesting to see how they differ from "other" characters, I can only imagine what a challenge it is to write. I watched the latest episode of Sherlock, which was great *claps hand over mouth* mrrff mmm mrf fmnrrf mmn mrf ) I've got yoga in an hour and a bit, and I just got a call about a possible temp-to-perm job. It's most likely too far away, but it's still nice to know I'm being considered.

Also, I made breakfast. And now I'm going to bore you with my recent adventures in real live grown-up cooking. Mwahaha. I do have enough mercy to cut it, though. You're welcome.
