*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! )

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. )

Quickly, before I go do some car shopping.

Name five songs that remind you of any five characters from fandom.

This might say more about me than I'd like, but I actually have a Word document in which I keep track of songs that remind me of characters/pairings. I guess it just helps me a lot if I can link a song to a character. Helps me get in their head. And pairings- well, pairings are just fun. I can imagine a little private musical number in my head.

Anyway, here are some selections from my list. )

A/N: Hope you don't mind I had to rope in another fandom to get this done. I knew it'd be tough to reach six ficlets. Uh, spoilers?

I'm watching about six very adorable deer eat corn out of the container my stepdad likes to put out in the backyard. He entertains dreams of hand-feeding them one day. All I can think is that those same deer are going to make a mess of the garden in a few weeks.

Anyway, I've gotten a good group of questions for my fifteen characters meme, so here are my answers. They come in the following categories: funny, interesting, and OW MY BRAIN.

Ahh, well. Halloween turned out much more interesting than I thought it would be. Ended up going to see Amelia with [livejournal.com profile] visiblemarket. The movie.. really was not what it could've been. It was very pretty to look at, but also riddled with what a friend of mine would call "emotional plotholes," and TBH the basic story-telling was just not.. coherent, almost at all. As Tom Servo said of Terror from the Year 5000 (and Amelia bearing any similarity to something from MST3K's canon is pretty telling in itself), "All these random scenes simply abutt each other to form a movie." Then there was the fact that every time Amelia spoke more than two sentences at once it sounded like Hillary Swank's Oscar Clip, and that's not even going into how painfully forced and saccharine the dialogue was in way too many places. And CE's American accent made me cringe just about as much as I thought it would, my goodness. All in all, really not worth the $10.75 I had to shell out to see it.

Aaanyway, after that mild unpleasantness, we bopped around Georgetown for a while, which was fun. At this one place we spotted Rorschach chatting up a devil woman at the bar, and Silk Spectre II mingling with the crowd nearby. Good times. I had my first Malibu Pineapple in the States, and it's just as delicious and just as expensive as I remember. I think only one person verbally recognized my costume, but a few folks were sure curious to find out about it. I was hoping to have pictures to share, but unfortunately I don't. For the record, I was a member of Team Zissou from The Life Aquatic. A red sock cap, my light blue Team Zissou tank top, and a pair of light blue scrubs pants- another readymade costume to go with my Mad Scientist from last year.

And then I lost my car keys. Not so fun. Had a small adventure failing to find them, and then calling AAA and having a locksmith open my car door. Looks like I'll be relying on my valet key for a while. I need to buy a new set and my mom also wants me to pay to replace the locks on our house since my house key was on the ring with the car keys. That's fair, but I think I'm going to hold off on all of it until I get a couple of paychecks. I already dropped quite a bit of money on movie tickets, dinner, and books yesterday (a cook book for my dad, And Another Thing for me- H2G2 re-read, ahoy!), and there's still the NYC trip to think about. And some bills that need taking care of too. Woof.

Otherwise, I've got dusting and vaccuuming to do and submissions to read. I also have Psycho Beach Party and Night of the Living Dead to watch and fic to write. And I have too few hours left before it's time to go out for my dad's birthday. And after that, it's another week of work! Sheesh.

From [livejournal.com profile] rionaleonhart:

- Write a list of characters and number them.
- Input the number of characters into this random number generator as the maximum and generate two numbers.
- Ramble about how the corresponding pairing/partnership/general interaction would (or, indeed, wouldn't) work. Perhaps write a snippet/one-sentence fic for it if you're feeling brave.
- Repeat to your heart's content.

Fandoms represented: Reaper, Middleman, Firefly, Discworld, Watchmen, Better Off Ted, Burn Notice, and Heroes )

A/N: Wow, it's been quite a while since I posted just straight fic on here, not attached to a meme or anything. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] visiblemarket for the quick beta-read.
Summary: Post-Day of the Squid, Rorschach lives on in the hearts and minds of New York’s citizens.

I’ll tell you, boy, if you look for trouble, you’ll find it. Rorschach’ll find you, and that’ll be that. )

Tomorrow morning, I'll be crawling out of bed at 5:10 to take the folks to the airport, which is an adequate price to pay to not be my mom's chore-slave for a long weekend. This morning was appropriated by a marathon run between the dump and Salvation Army in a desperate attempt to reclaim some of our garage from the stuff we dragged out of the basement.

Aaanyway, memes!

From [livejournal.com profile] visiblemarket:
Using only song names from ONE ARTIST, answer these questions. You can't use the band that I used. Try not to repeat a song title. It's a lot harder than you think! Repost as "my life according to (band name)".

My life according to The Killers )

Also, since I'm going to be in such a good mood tomorrow morning, here's a couple of audience participation memes. Distract me from my future pain!

Inspired by Doctor Who's "Turn Left:" Pick one of my stories and tell me a point in the tale that you'd change. Something tiny (e.g. "and then Peter got pizza instead of making grilled cheese") or big (e.g. "and then Claude agreed to the Devil's offer") and I'll tell you how that one difference would have altered the course of the entire story.


Give me a prompt for a five-sentence fic.
lotus0kid: (HP/MST3K)
Rifftrax Live: Plan 9 from Outer Space!
It will be seen. This is a thing that will happen. Anybody wanna come along? I know the overlap between my MSTie (from which Rifftrax has its origins), online, and local friends is small, but still, and if any of the as yet uninitiated are curious...

And now that the exchange fic is well and truly done (not well, but done), I can turn my attention to other things. To that end, it's almost suspiciously convenient that I stumbled upon this meme:

The "You Should Write..." Meme!
my thread here

a. One of the Watchmen ideas I've been toying with. All one-shots, except for something on the kink meme that I'll probably chicken out of writing anyway. It's just too awesome an idea for a n00b like me to tackle.
b. The Middleman/Better Off Ted crossover in which MM and Wendy visit Veridian to make sure they're not getting up to any too much mischief.
c. The fic that will be, ah, Plaude to the tune of Shrek. Multi-chapter, completely AU, hopefully amusing if on the black comedy side of things. Yeah, I wasn't kidding, [livejournal.com profile] c_quinn. I really want to write it.
d. Finishing that damn [livejournal.com profile] heroes15 table. Two more words, dangit, two!
e. Something else, to be specified on the thread.
lotus0kid: (Discworld V)
So, what about that Watchmen book, huh? Yup, finished it. And spoilers abound. )

So, those are my thoughts on that, such as they are. Moving on, I had a kind of cool dream last night. Cut because.. I feel like it. )

Anyway, last week's meme went so well, let's have another! Poached from [livejournal.com profile] zombres:

Comment and give me (ONE TO) THREE FANDOMS I apparently love. And then I'll answer these questions about them!

01: What got you into this fandom in the first place?
02: Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
03: Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
04: Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
05: Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?
