[community profile] snowflake_challenge day 9: In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something.

[footage not found]

And here is my Day 7 video, as promised. I actually like doing this. So. It may be a thing that I do periodically. Hello, and welcome to my room mwahahaah

As for snowflake day 10 talking about someone whose fanworks/presence you want to CELEBRATE.. skipping, for now, because I want to rave on [personal profile] gloss some more, but lack the spoons at the moment! And really, I do it quite often. :P

And Day 11 has now posted while this window has been open, waiting for me to finish: In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favourite interview, a book) and explain why you love it so much. Here, have the entirety of The Inside available on YouTube. If you require downloads, I or[personal profile] prozacpark would be happy to hook you up as the series is very unlikely to receive a DVD release, and the creators encourage finding the series by whatever means.

Oh, look, Day 12! In your own space, rec at least three fanworks that you think would make a good intro into XYZ fandom. Rec a fandom overview, a introductory picspam, stories that define and shape the fandom. If at all possible, try to pick a smaller or rarer fandom, one that maybe doesn't have the following you feel it should.

To switch things up, I am going to link to three beautiful arts!

under the cut because of PRETTY -- one image has drawn gore )


Day 13: In your own space, ask for recs. Something as simple as "I like XYZ (where XYZ is a kink, a pairing, a trope, etc) - please rec me some."

I am perpetually looking for:
  • The Office fic with IC Karen Filippelli
  • Parks & Recreation fic where Ann has agency
  • Community fic where Britta is fallible but not pitiable
  • Excellent books that I can read for free as EPUB
  • Any/All roller derby femslash AUs
And finally, for now, day 14: In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers. Share you love and squee as loud as you want to. Skipping this one as well, though if you'd like to leave a comment with the name of a character, I'll write a short drabble about someone/something THEY love!

Tomorrow was going to be a day off, but lol, I'm bouting. I got recruited to play with SIRG's B Team against the Springfield Roller Girls, so hopefully it won't suck. Hell, my hip is still fucked up from last Saturday, but I'm pretty sure I don't ever actually say no to anything. So, here I am.

I've been listening to "We Want To" by New Young Pony Club on repeat and brushing my cats' teeth and writing. T and I had pancakes for dinner. 

Updates:
remixredux = 95%  100%
rarewomen = 10%
fandom_helps = 0%
rainbow_support x 3 = 1%
femslash100 drabble cycle = 20%

Stuff I'm into lately:
Keira Knightley
Homeland
Greg Laswell
Homestuck fanfiction
Runaways

 Here's my monthly media post. Contains vague spoilers for Cougar Town s1, The Good Wife, Fringe, etc etc, various movies... blah. 

BOUT DAY.

It's my first time captaining, and I'm excited, mostly? I'm sure I'll get nervous in a bit. 

C'est tout!
aphrodite_mine: barrettes in reddish hair read 'feminist killjoy' (l word - alas)
The minute I start RPing again*, I get swamped.
The minute I get swamped, I get ideas for fun projects**.

GRAH, BOUT WEEK.

Today: Do the work. Finish the paperwork. Go to the place. Talk to the people***. Solve problems! Ignore that your day off is no longer your day off.
Tomorrow: Do the work. Finish the paperwork. Get adjusted. Go to practice. Skate, skate, skate.
Thursday: Do the work. Write? Get the money from the bank. Do more work. Write? Do all the work. Write?!
Friday: Do some work. WRITE.
Saturday: SKATE. Don't get stupiddrunk.
Sunday: Take a breath. Write. Update the site. Watch the shows. Breathe, breathe, breathe.

And then there's a month-long break between bouts, which, thank GOD, because I have about a million things to get done. During my "off" month, I need to:
- attend a wedding (get gift for wedding)
- work a trivia night
- attend a team meeting (always stressful)
- finish remix
- finish (start) rarewomen
- finish? fivetimesbb
- get a clear start on fandom_helps and rainbow_support fics
- practice twice a week
- work late once a week
- treat myself to a tattoo if I do all the things? (or if I don't)

*I'm playing Mary Margaret at sws and memebells on LJ - whiteas_snow
**Derbystuck! Even when I'm sick of the sport I can't get enough of it
***Play with the puppies

Sick sick.

Half the office and half the team has this crud... and apparently H1N1 is going around the schools, so gah, just praying I don't have that.

My team lost on Saturday... thanks if you wore teal in solidarity! Definitely single-handedly won the after party while starting to get sick which made for a bad rest of the weekend full of bad choices (smoking a cigarette? REALLY? You thought that would be a good idea?) and Monday off of work. Today, I'm just trying to medicate enough to be at work with minimal fever.

Please:
1) hit me with the not-sucky writing stick if you have it
2) rec me some web comics (or just comics in general that I can read on screen, at work, for free)

On the up side, the weather is suspiciously nice which means the return of the old man and his dog which you'll recognize if you've read Horn of Plenty (which I linked to, kindly). Gah, they make me so delighted.

New Girl tonight!

  • The Great Ann Perkins Ficathon! is accepting prompts and fills here.
  • Consentfest 2012 is accepting prompts and fills as well.
My first game of the season is on Saturday, and I'm excited. Quote from a satisfied customer: "You hit me so hard my teeth rattled." If you had asked me four years ago if I would be tickled pink at the thought of knocking someone silly I would have said never in a million years, and yet here I am... busting my ass every week (and busting others') in a sport that I helped bring to the area. Excuse my nostalgia and pride... It's incredible to be starting another season.

Writing updates:
  • recast_bigbang looks to be dead in the water. I'm not sure if I'll finish or post what I have because it's gotten to the point where I kind of hate it.
  • rarewomen is gooooooo. I'm glad the deadline is far off!
  • [community profile] kink_bingo 's latest mini challenge is "something new" and I'd like to write something... I'm just struggling to figure out what.
  • I still don't have a solid idea for [community profile] queer_bigbang , but it's far in the distance of my mind at the moment.
  • I signed up for Remix Redux yesterday and damnit, I'm going to participate this year.
  • Is it too early to be getting excited for femslash12? IS IT?

 Things that I did today:

1. Tidied up fivetimesbb idea into something manageable (two crossovers out of five agree)
2. Finished my part of the rarewomen matching spreadsheets
3. Shopped, briefly
4. Drove an hour and a half with two passengers and said only one sentence (oh, introversion!)
5. Thought about recast_bigbang (It starts at a wedding.)
6. Thought about New Girl and zombies (Jess makes the first kill, screaming and flailing wildly with the only weapon available, her crochet needles. Cece is surprised by how quickly she becomes really fucking good at shooting a rifle.)
7. Thought about a Parks high school AU (Ann feels herself slipping deeper and deeper into Leslie and Lindsay's over-lapping shadows as they move farther and farther apart.)
8. Held up a score board
9. Drove an hour and a half with two passengers and talked slightly more 
10. Thought about how awesome roller derby is. And it is. Awesome.

Today: make it through practice without gut busting open, seriously, wtf is happening in my intestines right now? Also, don't kill anyone who is on the list of Dammit You Are Really Not Helping This League and I Begged My Parents For Money Today So Quiet You.
Tomorrow: get through work, do some writing, maybe, and GOD DAMNIT, relax and enjoy some pizza and Parks with your lesbians. (Skins?) Oh and take a few minutes to update the site because you said you would!
Wednesday: work, therapy ugh fuck, femslash_today update, rarewomen sign ups going live hopefully? CROSSING MY FINGERS, don't drink don't drink don't drink.
Thursday: work late! write! uh... write more! Parks! review! sleep!
Friday: work, admin stuff, Fringe, MEAT TRAY?!, sleep sleep sleep get some sleep please oh god. (Bomb Girls?) hope really hard that because the weekend looks mostly stress free you won't have an Anxiety Episode and ruin the time off.
Saturday: web meeting part deux - the "I had a panic attack and canceled the last one" edition, catch up on watching the things (The Good Wife!)
Sunday: relax. more sleep.

And at some point in the week:
- start re-reading Alias
- finish the wedding scene/get to 4500 words
- narrow down rarewomen sign up... I know I'm requesting Parks, but my other two slots are up for debate

The bout went really well. Hosting is always a flurry of activity and last-minutes, but it pulled together (minus a brief snafu of drama, one that I think will be resolved soon) and we made the other team work HARD for their 20 point win. Considering the last time we played them we lost by over 100? We did fucking awesomely. I'm so proud of everyone, and proud to be a member of such an incredible team.

As far as I know, the only serious injury goes out to my wife, who coached. She jumped on her bad knee, sending it back about three months in healing.

Such a huge expenditure of energy left me feeling vulnerable, however. I've spent the past two nights sobbing in my dreams. Saturday, it was wave after wave of rejection, judgment, and being left behind/out. Last night, I suppose the tears were more of joy, with a darkness behind them.

Have a meme: cast the movie of my life, based solely on how I come across emotionally to you (so, forget any pictures you've seen, not that I look like any celebs). You can also cast the co-stars: my wife, my sister, [livejournal.com profile] prozacpark , [livejournal.com profile] damariscain  and her wife Laura.

Let me tell you about my dream from last night. I don't remember chronologically, so bits and pieces.
- My mother told me she almost disowned me when I came out. (this kind of colored the rest of the dream)
- I found out a number of celebrities were gay: Kristin Chenowith performed a song from Wicked (with a female co-star) ending with a kiss by a Christmas tree, for a family audience. In a question-and-answer session afterwards, I told her how much it meant to me, to be presented with the possibility of belonging. Dakota Fanning (future!Dakota Fanning, she was older) was topless under overalls (surprisingly hot, or not surprisingly at all) and her nipples were pierced and she confessed to a small group that she was a homosexual. (Of course, even in the dream I couldn't quite believe this. One part of me sure it was to get lesbian fans, and the other part fiercely protective of her secret.) There was also a book of photos of famous lesbian couples. I don't remember most, but Anne Hathaway had a girlfriend.
- I think I watched a little too much Oscars.

This muggy, perpetually rainy weather is killing me.
