Oh fine. But I'm not staying up for CA.

Honestly, though, I did recently find out that I was born and raised in the fifth richest county in the country. Ye-eah... *fidgets under mink coat of privilege*

Anywho, meme! From [livejournal.com profile] zombres:

Comment with "Come at me, bro"
• I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
• Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

She gave me some kickass questions, for serious. )

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. )
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.
lotus0kid: (dreamer)
Hee, fandom-y dreams, start your morning off right!

Okay, so, clearly the pics [livejournal.com profile] visiblemarket linked last evening pretty thoroughly infected my brain, because I'm pretty sure I was Kate from White Collar in this dream. I dunno, I was certainly holding hands with a strangely scruffy Neal Caffrey enough. Also not really surprisingly, a CE character was with us. I didn't get a solid confirmation of what CE character, but I'm going to go with Claude. Claude was looking very scruffy as well, probably three-quarters of the way to his S1 look. Anyway, we three were conning our way into a fancy restaurant- well, Neal and Claude were, I seemed to be mostly along for the ride. I think Claude got in by impersonating some eccentric and world-famous professor, and Neal his prodigous assistant (who morphed into Joseph Gordon-Levitt for a brief instant- Neal the shapeshifter? That would explain some things). Anyway, we all sat down on one side of a table, and there was an older woman sitting on the other side, possibly played by Vanessa Redgrave (I've been catching the same five minutes of Mission Impossible on TV lately). I think she was hiring Neal and Claude to do some con- I wasn't really paying attention because the hand-holding was somewhat distracting, and also I was busy reading about the really expensive tea selection on the menu.

And then the dream morphed into Michael Weston from Burn Notice helping a family rob a bank and not having the best of luck with it, and I think the teenage daughter might have been played by the same girl who did Alex from Lost. Since I watched the season finale of Burn Notice last night, this part of the dream is also kind of annoyingly explicable. And then I was on a busy street and there were people dressed like the Stig- not everyone, just a few. I was delighted.

And now I'm off to work. But hey, the Renaissance Festival is gearing up this weekend! I think after this busy week I'd prefer to sit out the opening, but next weekend I'm totally there. Anyone want to come?
lotus0kid: (Default)
Well, looks like I'll be headed to Florida next week with my mom to visit my sister and nephew. Hope that goes well (please don't make me hold him). It's going to be a five-day trip, which takes a serious bite out of the remaining time for me to finish my bigboom fic. That's unfortunate because now I don't even know how far along I am. Can't be more than two-thirds, though, at the most. So, I think I'm going to have to do the sequestering thing, see if I can't crank out something more like five-sixths of this beast before I leave.

So, before that development, I've been watching some things.

White Collar and Psych- spoilers! )

Also, the ongoing Netflix affair:

Wristcutters: A Love Story and 1978's Dawn of the Dead- also spoilers! )

You know, I don't think it's possible to write a fic without any "backstory" as the meme describes it. What on earth can the characters talk about if you don't give them something to do?

Title: The Petrelli Heist

All right, let's see a demonstration, then. )

A/N: Okay, River stuck her nose in and kind of stole the show (which I'm sure Simon's used to). If you want to, [livejournal.com profile] c_quinn, please give me another prompt and I'll try again.

That makes you S. Tam, right? )

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.

You're amazing. )

P.S. For anyone who's interested, this is John's Pizzeria. Awesome place, for serious. Check out the photo gallery.

My calendar and DVD came! Yay! All... well, more is right with the world. Now I'm just wondering about my Microsoft Office software. Would've expected that to get here real quick. Anyway, reviving a meme, because it's a very fun one:

- 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: Middleman, Firefly, Discworld, White Collar, Dollhouse, Burn Notice, Doctor Who, Psych, Hot Fuzz, Jeeves & Wooster, and Heroes )

Well, I managed to hang on to my fancy asst. editor job, just barely. I got through about sixty submissions in two days, with a handful more to go through by Saturday. Unsurprisingly, my muse is a little shellshocked. So, I'm thinking a meme or two might help.

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.

Also, White Collar, Dollhouse, and Better Off Ted- big thumbs up. Excellent television right there.
lotus0kid: (verbs or adjectives)
Well, I managed to get two done so far. I'm afraid the Peter/West will have to wait for the weekend, [livejournal.com profile] c_quinn. What I want to write for it is... going to need more attention than what I can give during my lunch break.

A/N: Um, okay, this is probably not even close to what you might've wanted, beyond being contrived as all heck. Sorry, but it's what came to me. I'll do better next time, promise.

Hey, hon, still stuck at the office? )


Title: Test Drive
Rating: G
Word Count: 276
Summary: "Plaude, mattress shopping" for [livejournal.com profile] englishmuffin2.
A/N: I don't think I've ever done dialogue-only Plaude.

You've done this before, haven't you. )

P.S. New York photos when I can get around to stealing them from Facebook!
