Supergirl Comment Fest - because there's a universe in six minutes

So people on Twitter encouraged me and, well, we need something to be excited about.

The Supergirl</em> Trailer dropped today and it is six minutes of HEAVEN. We have been squealing about it all day (I feel a little bad for SHIELD and Arrow's season finales? b/c everyone's SUPERGIRL OMG DID YOU--)

Basically we finally have our Kara and she is a fucking delight.

And, let's face it, so many things have been written on so much less.

Kara deserves all the fic.

Not precisely rules, but basically guidelines, idk. )

There might've been more fangirling than guidelines in there and I am TOTALLY okay with this.

Access Only

Okay, so yeah, I've been kicking this around for a while now, but I changed my default posting setting to access only. I'm sure I'll still post non-locked entries from time to time, but that'll be the exception rather than the norm. Sorry to anyone who doesn't have an account, assuming anyone is reading like that now, but between some fandom goings on and some personal stuff coming up, it just seemed like the time.

Well, that seals it.

I suppose I should take it as a sign. Just when I'm considering going back to 750words.com, the site announces it's going paid only. (You won't lose any of your previous writing, but you won't be able to do anymore unless you pay up come April 1st)

My reaction was "AHAHAHAHAHA no."

I was a regular user of the site until I was almost a year into a streak and the damned thing decided not to save a night. I was so disgusted I stopped using it and, yeah, reading that announcement tonight I flashed right back on that aggravation and, yeah, no.

Someone needs to come up with a fannish equivalent I swear. Something with shiny shirtless people to serve as reward.

Every thousand words, Derek Hale runs across your screen or something.

Oh Colonel Ironhorse...

Have finished watching S1 of the War of the Worlds. God, I forgot A: how gruesome this show was (seriously. You know how many times limbs get ripped off in this show? MULTIPLE TIMES) and B: how freaking hot Ironhorse was. Like, seriously. He was probably my first TV crush outside of Star Trek. I had a massive, massive crush on that man and it hasn't gone anywhere.

Rewatching, though, I pretty much adore everyone. Harrison is a hot, ditzy guy. Norton is a badass (and Gertrude is the most awesome wheelchair that ever wheeled). Suzanne's hair is ridiculously 80s at times, but she, herself, is amazing (and I think I OT3 the hell out of her, Ironhorse, and Blackwood).

Forget s2. It never happened. *nods firm*

But man, how much would a reboot of this series rock?

I keep EVERYTHING (or how I just found an entire coded prompt post)

It's a running thing at work that my boss or coworker will lose something and (shock) I will have a copy. I ALWAYS have a copy. Be it an email or hard copy, you'd better believe I have one lying around somewhere. It can be a pain in the ass habit as stuff tends to pile up, but most of the time, ass-saving!

Anyway, tonight, when procrastinating about writing (ugh, I swear I don't get why I am so blocked) I was cleaning up my fic folder. Found an entire Sterek story I barely remember writing (technically it's not finished either...) huh. ALSO found an entire coded prompt post for the awesome ladies drabble-a-thon I did back in the day.

Heh. Cool.

That was a fun one to run. Should do a more informal (comment based) one sometime...

my pen is broken...it's only partly a metaphor

I treated myself to a swarovski pen a while back. Unfortunately I dropped it and now the damn thing won't turn down. I has a sad. It's such a lovely pen and I felt all grown up using it. ;) I'm contemplating a replacement, but I'm not sure I should trust myself with something that nice again.

*sadfaces*

Similarly, I can't seem to get my brain in order to write something interesting. The next part of Ella is due up, but I'm sort of frozen. How does one write a scene with a six year old waking up in a panic. *facepalm*

And forget writing anything else, nothing comes out good or even the possibility of good. It's frustrating.

Ugh.

-

Did manage to clean up a story I started for the porn battle but never finished. I'm not sure it's 'enough' of a story to post elsewhere, but it's a thousand words of Chris Argent and an OFC werewolf I like to imagine is Amanda Tapping's future guest spot on the show. ;)

Never did get to any sexy times and I'm not sure there's enough there to turn into a longer story or if anyone would read it if I did. BUT here it is anyway. (Such a ringing endorsement *facepalms again*) Opinions?

Prey )

Ooh picfor1000 brainstorming

I am THINKING, given my picture, something along the lines of post-apocafic (I am tempted to write Melissa McCall femslash with an OFC Hale werewolf crossover with the Walking Dead thanks to Melissa Ponzio's little guest appearance in sunday's ep. SO TEMPTED) but I am not sure.

Wanna take a peek my peeps and possibly help me brainstorm?

haaaate valentine's day

Over the past few years, I've lucked out and not had to work on Valentine's day. This year, not so much. So I had to watch the parade of last minute shoppers, which wasn't so bad. I indulged and bought mom a few things (which scandalized her as I always do this, she always forgets and then she feels bad for not returning the favor *g*) but as the day went on the well-meaning stuff started.

The 'oh, but you know...' or 'I'm sure you'll be...' etc etc and then the astonishment when I correct them with 'no, actually i don't' with varying levels of detail.

Just, UGH, thank you people but I give myself one day a year to be a complete bitch about the fact I'm single and without any hope of changing that (seriously, freaking invisible here). It's a good, solid emotional release. I didn't get that this year because, yes, working, so having the 'aw hon' looks which subtly transmute into '...so what's wrong with you'? Just a little much to deal with.

Ugh. Hate Valentine's Day. SO MUCH.

So to celebrate, I broke my 'hey, no charging shit' directive and ordered S1 of the War of the Worlds (my first REAL fictional non-Trek crush-- aka Colonel Paul Ironhorse) and an Animated Batman reference book. (Also realized that I can buy Alpha Flight issues through my iPod's Marvel app so I can pay for them via iTunes gift card and that the app is available for my tablet so I can read on there. OMG. All the joy)

I wanted to buy a nice purse, but the one I wanted on Amazon sold out right before I would have ordered it. Ugh.

EITHER WAY.

The day is over and now it's just the usual 'oh honey, how is it you're so old and not dating?' crap I get from the old folks in town (small town. Love it some days, some days I want to go Texas Chainsaw on it) which is only mildly homicide inducing as opposed to OH SO VERY.

I'm not even that old. I'm 32. (but then again, I'm female. So, you know, in man years that's like 164)

;)

Okay so I could be a little bit of a bitch. *loves that*


OOOH, I must say thank you so the anonymouse who sent me that lovely lil message on [livejournal.com profile] svmadelyn's Valentine's Love game. Without you, I would not have had a single bit o' the love today and it was SO wonderful.

All the hearts!!!

right, long silences, dvrs, and snow days

The worst part about falling silent for so long is trying to figure out what to say after the fact. Summarize events as it were. The uncle I mentioned in a few posts (medie!mom's younger brother) has passed due to a brain tumor. He managed to fight the bugger off for two years (it was stage four when they found it) but he finally succumbed last sunday night. He's better off. At the end they were suctioning his lungs every few hours and he wasn't even conscious.

The mother is, so far, okay. I thought she might lose it yesterday at the funeral, but no. Fortunately, though, the boss can be surprisingly sympathetic about these kinds of things so he worked it that I got most of the day off (I went in for two hours to do a few things, then he came in to cover for me until another coworker could come in at lunch) and I spent it with her.

Today we've spent most of the day together again, not by design, but by weather. We seem to be having a proper blizzard. I risked my neck to go in long enough to do the payroll this AM, but only just made it home. The snow has mostly stopped (I think) but the winds are still hurricane strength. Fortunately, thus far, the boss hasn't tried to open the store this afternoon (he's done it before) but I am holding my mental breath. I'm owed enough hours from last week alone that I can take the day and not need to worry about working an extra day (inventory last week. I always rack up the hours over inventory) so think good thoughts people.

If this works, I'll have scored an impressive 4 day weekend. I NEVER get that. ;) Conclusion, my uncle is somewhere in the great beyond grinning evilly (for he was the awesome sort like that).

There is, at least, the promise of new Walking Dead tonight and the DVR (new, omg, I am in love!!!) is happily recording season two for me to watch when the Medie!Mom is not around to be squicked out (I love shows like this, but she does not so I take pity and watch them when she isn't around. It works well, even if it does mean I watch an embarrassing amount of Family Feud) and we have a James Bond marathon in the meantime to keep us entertained. (She might be nearly eighty, but the mother appreciates a hot British spy)

I probably should be taking the day to write, but holy crap I am struggling to get back into the swing of it. I have my two Teen Wolf wips to get back to (Ella has been updated, but I'm working out how to pull off the Derek & Co come for Lydia thing for "The Joy You Find Here") but making myself do it is just, UGH, and I have zero idea what to do for [community profile] halfamoon (feel free to suggest something).

In the meantime, me and my cold will be shopping for valentine's day gifts (hey, if there's no special someone, who says I can't buy one for myself?) and watching Bond.

Oooh, did I hear someone say [personal profile] svmadelyn was running her v-day secret message thing on LJ again this year? I loved that back in the day.

staranise's words & deeds meme...

Probably too late to be linking this (due to medical emergency. Uncle has taken a turn for the worse, but this is not news) but my thread at said meme is here

Fandom to the rescue, there's a furball in need of financial support!

The ever so lovely [personal profile] recessional has an equally adorable furball by the name of Lorelae. Poor little thing went into get some work done on her teeth and....it went bad from there (due to surprise!heart disease).

So, there is fund-raising to help with the rather expensive financial side of things. She's offering readings here and a few fic auctionings here

Being a cat mom myself (albeit to an abomination against mankind *g*), this is kind of my worst nightmare, so as an addendum to [personal profile] recessional's fundraising, I'm offering drabbles for, say, a few dollars? (Ideally $5 a pop, but anything will help)

Arrow, Teen Wolf (easiest of all, I imagine, would be more of the War Poetry verse, but I've begun work again on Ella with The Joy You Find Here on the list as well so they're present in my thoughts), OUAT, Person of Interest, and Elementary are probably your best bet, but I'm willing to try something older if you have something specific in mind. It's for an animal, I'll try just about anything :)

But if you just want to drop by and donate, voila! button *points down*

heh, sometimes I'm such a fangirl

Sharing a joke with Bill Shatner (or at least whoever tweets for him) has me grinning like a little kid.

Yup. Trek to my backbone as they say.
