I'm going to be editing my big bang like a mofo tonight. You guys have no idea how... I don't even know. It's not the story I set out to write as set out on my BB filter and it's not even the fic I set out to write once I had this new idea in my head. I don't even know what to think about it.

Anyway. Before I get down to business I have to eat and I wanted to point out something that I did this morning.

I was asked to do the Ask the Artist post this month at [livejournal.com profile] spnroundtable. I've never done anything like this so I'm kinda nervous. If you guys want please check it out here and feel free to ask questions! I encourage it, actually, because I felt like a tool when I wrote the post, as I wasn't really 100% sure what I wanted to say!

Someone make me finish my [livejournal.com profile] apocalyptothon fic! HOMG. I have over 2000 words so far but have NO IDEA how to finish it. Goddammit. The first bit came so EASILY and now, less than 24 hours to go and I'm like... stuck. Thank GOD the [livejournal.com profile] spn_harlequin fic doesn't have to be done until SOMETIME in August.

Also, I got my [livejournal.com profile] spn_remix person thing. It's very exciting but right now I'm trying to get into "end-of-the-world" mode so I can't go play with other people's fics yet.

GAH! [livejournal.com profile] apocalyptothon! Help?

It's way too late to be up right now but I've had a productive day (got my hair done, cleaned out the fridge, made supper, cleaned my room, finished sending out icons for [livejournal.com profile] spn_iconathon) so I might as well keep the streak going before I go to bed.

ATTENTION ICONMAKERS (or icon aficionados)

I'm looking for GREAT tutorials. Preferably ones for SPN icons (those caps can be so tricky) but any really great tutorial will work. If you know of any awesome icon/graphic tutorials for SPN caps or ones that would work for those caps please link them here. I have some in my memories and at my delicious account but I know there are a lot more out there. Anything to do with lightening caps is good, too.

Also, if you have any favourite resource (texture, brushes, gradients, stock) makers, especially ones in SPN fandom, please link them as well.

I did the Snaps Cup meme here. Feel free to link me to yours.

Want to be a mod at [livejournal.com profile] good_snicons? Apply here. Want to apply to post at the community? You can do so here.

First challenge at [livejournal.com profile] spn_fanmix is up here. Go, join, post, sing along.

It's a lovely 31 C here today. *rolls in it*

I feel VERY accomplished right now. VERY.

Last night I FINALLY posted the new application post at [livejournal.com profile] good_snicons here. I've also opened an application post for mods here. If you're interested take a gander, read through the obligations (really, they're very little once you get used to the comm) and apply, mmkay? I've also started a comm for the mods and I'm thinking of posting some sort of resource/tutorial post or something for there? All the icon resource comms I can think of as well as as many GOOD SPN icon tutorials that I can find. [livejournal.com profile] icon_tutorial is great if you're just starting out and wanting to figure out how to do some basic tricks and everything but there's only so many selective colouring tutorials you can see in a row before your brains leak out of your head.

Also, would it be wanky to compile a post, of sorts, explaining what the mods are looking for in applications and how we base our decisions?

I've also FINALLY posted the first challenge at [livejournal.com profile] spn_fanmix here. Check out the rules of the comm, join and jump in! Mind the subject line when you're posting fanmixes, please, as it makes filing memories easier and try to use tags and it'll be great!

I'm also working on my second meta (on folklore) for [livejournal.com profile] spn_resource but I'm having a little trouble pinpointing exactly what I want to write it on. Any ideas?

I've heard the latest spoilers for Doctor Who season 4 and I'm kinda really okay with it. I'm excited, even.

AND AND AND. I'm working on an Edward/Bella fanmix for the Twilight series. I want to read (good) fic and I'm tempted with trying to come up with writing something. I don't know if I'm behind that Browning girl being the ideal Bella. There's just something about her that irks me a little, although she's growing on me. I'm kinda behind Amber Tamblyn being her but there's something about her voice I don't really like. I think I'd rather go find someone totally anonymous and use her as my vision. Same with Edward although the french guy isn't bad, I guess. I dunno.

And now I think it's time for bed. It was 32 C or something stupid here today. I LOVE IT! It's not a humid heat like at home so I'm as happy as a pig in shit. It's supposed to get upwards of 38 this week! *flails*


It's done!

It's done! I finally got the layout, the user info and the intro post done! You have to join the community to see any posts because it's set to auto-flock but other than that it's all right there. Please go join, post, revel, okay? And spread the word! There are going to be challenges in the comm as well and I think the first one is going to be what song you feel represents characters from the show. A mini-character mix for the whole show, if you will. So put on your thinking caps and ponder that while I prepare that post for tomorrow, eh?

If you want to affiliate with me, let me know. SPN comms, music comms, etc. [livejournal.com profile] lostt1, if there's anything that should be different or that you want changed just let me know!

ALSO! [livejournal.com profile] dorkdance talked me through everything (and set everything up for me) and I've now started my first fic site since my Buffy days! Stand in Love! I only have 12 fics up there right now but I'm going to be working on them over the next few days. I am become Death, shatterer of worlds isn't there yet, though, because I've had it copied into my Google docs for about a month now for editing. I want to tighten it up and correct a lot of the wording that makes me cringe. I love that fic so I want to do right by it.

I'm working on changing the layout up some at the site because while I love the green the flower is already starting to wear on me. And I have to add stuff to the front page and change the footer and whatnot but that kind of shit takes me forever. This site is mainly just a backup for me to have everything at my fingertips if something should happen unexpectedly here.

Speaking of fics, I've been thinking all this time that I post my BigBang Monday (I don't know why I put that on my calendar) but instead it's Wednesday. Which is kind of good because I haven't started sectioning it off yet what with trying to get [livejournal.com profile] spn_fanmix up and working on the fic site and whatnot. I've also finally started my [livejournal.com profile] spn_heraea which I want to get done ASAP. I haven't had a chance to read any of the BigBang fics yet, which means I'm already behind, and that sucks.

Why are there not more hours in the day?!

hokay, so

Here's the thing, people who post fandom-y stuff...

When you post a link to a community or something, right? And the newsletter team has to pick up that link and post it (or else holy hell will reign down on our heads)? It helps if you link to the post and NOT YOUR JOURNAL. Because then WE have to go through YOUR journal and find that post you're linking. And it SUCKS. And you're not helping yourself because a week from now when someone clicks your link to find your post, all excited cause your post was JUST what they were looking for, all they're going to see is the week's worth of posts you made on top of the one you linked. Smart? No. Not in the least.

In other news, Jared's still adorable. Jensen's gorgeous. Bigbang has started (200t!), my mom comes here in 1 month and 2 days, my birthday is in a month and 9 days, and [livejournal.com profile] spn_fanmix is going to be open ASAP as soon as I like... put up a rules post.

Taco pizza's kinda nifty. I got the SPN comic but haven't read it yet aaaaaand... I want ice cream.

The end.

OH OH! Not the end! If you want to come to an AIM chat the name is: supersummerweek1. Self-invite if you know how or im Marishnas and I'll see what I can do.

Can I just like, be friends with Jared Padalecki? You know, go to a movie and eat skittles or a smuggled bag of peanut M&Ms, generally make a mess and laugh really loud (more at Jared than the actual movie, though) and then poke him a little when he gets too loud. And then after go out for coffee. But not actual coffee because I don't drink it and I don't think he really needs more caffeine. We could have some sort of cold, whipped-cream drink, however. Although that would have caffeine AND sugar in it, but that's okay. That's Jared. We could sit around in the cafe (because it's a cafe where we get not!coffee. Probably Starbucks) and drink our cold drinks and sit there and talk about the movie at first and then drift onto other things that would probably end with him telling this great story that would make me laugh so hard I'd pee. Not that that's a HARD thing, but still.

Seriously, being friends with that boy... I'd probably die. I'd kill myself in a fit of glee or something. I cannot WAIT for the fics that are going to come out of last night. It'll be amazing. Although I'm not sure the fiction will ever live up to the reality cause they WRITE THEMSELVES.

Posting has started over at [livejournal.com profile] super_summer and tonight after I get the newsletter done I'm going to start setting up the posts for [livejournal.com profile] spn_fanmix! Yat!

I'm seriously so excited for this comm. Now there's an actual layout and an icon and header and stuff. [livejournal.com profile] lostt1 and I discussed things tonight and there will be a guidelines post going up within the next day (I hope) but I'm just about falling asleep at the computer right now so it's definitely almost time for bed.

Either way, go join (you won't be able to just watch the comm, the entries have been set to lock automatically) and pimp!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] super_summer kicks off tomorrow! I've already posted the first week discussion post and reminded the people who are up for this week. If you want to join of promote the community there's still lots of time to do it! There are a few comms and a few themes that still don't have anyone assigned to them and I'd REALLY like to get new people in on them instead of begging the people who have already joined and signed up to take on another one. Please pimp the comm, come join and have some fun!

I also posted a bunch of SPN icon recs here at [livejournal.com profile] spnroundtable. I'm one of the guest reccers this month so 200t! I think I might do my favourite things next. Yes yes.

I got tagged for that 10 things meme, so I want to do that. Also, I had to ask for an extension at [livejournal.com profile] slashfest for my fics because the Jared/Chad one just isn't moving as fast as I wanted it to. I have to work on my [livejournal.com profile] spn_heraea fic, as well. I'm Team!Angst and my prompt is rifle. Oh, the fun I'm going to have.

I finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix today on the way home from work and I've started Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I'm away of [livejournal.com profile] read_hp which is good and bad. I really only had the community friended so I could tell where I should be in the books to have them read before the 7th comes out (HOMG A MONTH AND 14 DAYS!) because I was so behind but now I'm way ahead so the comm's rather moot to me now.

And holy, I just zoned out REALLY badly so I think it's definitely time for bed.

Gggooooooddddd. Last night's/yesterday's episode of Doctor Who? Heart-wrenching. Really. Some of it I didn't really buy into (for the same reasons that I didn't buy into the Sam/Madison deal in "Heart") but by the end I was still in tears. I love the direction that they're going in this season, although I'm not sure of the staying power of Martha (don't get me wrong, I like her) but after Rose is ANYONE going to be able to live up to that? I can't wait for what's coming at the end of the season.

Saw Knocked Up tonight, too. No spoilers cause I really don't have anything to say about it but it was funny and well done. A little too long like 40 Year-Old Virgin was but worth it. I was hoping for a Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix trailer before it but I suppose that's not really an HP-friendly movie for it, eh? The bulb in our projector was flickering REALLY badly, though, and it pissed me off through the whole movie. The theatre here is very poorly run and makes me long for my old one.

It feels earlier than it is and I should be in bed but I want to get things done. I have to get a banner or layout or SOMETHING up at [livejournal.com profile] spn_fanmix so that can get up and running and I should be working on my [livejournal.com profile] slashfest fics. I'm about 2000+ words in on one and the other is in my head, so that's a start. ALSO! Still time to sign up for [livejournal.com profile] super_summer! Please, tell a friend to come join, as well. Some episodes are still hard up for people so I really want more people to join. Pimp it out, tell a friend, bribe someone- anything. I'll love you forever!

I get to post my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang fic in TEN days! All... six posts worth. *facepalm*

AND! If you're participating in [livejournal.com profile] spn_iconathon and have not submitted an icon this week, please do so as we only have 16 so far!
fun_like_that: (Default)
GIP! I'm not actually ouchy, I just wanted to use the icon. Maybe I'll finally finish those 2x14 icons this weekend?

So as of the 24th I have had this journal for FOUR years. Wow. I can still remember the summer I got this journal and everything- the way my computer was set up, what was going on at home, my first friends and everything. Time flies, dudes.

So I have an anniversary meme thing behind the cut. I've also done some other journal housekeeping things and defriended some people. Mainly people who don't update often, who haven't in awhile, or people I don't feel I have much in common with. It's always defriending amnesty day here so come and go as you wish, of course. If you're just here for the fandom stuff, that's absolutely fine. If, sometime down the road, I see some of you again and we've found ourselves in the same place fandom/life-wise I welcome getting to know you for a second time. It HAS happened before that former friends and I found our way to each other again and re-friended, so it's cool.

Journal birthday meme thing )

I wrote a Jared/Chad blowjob scene today on the bus. DON'T JUDGE! It's for [livejournal.com profile] slashfest. I have to get those fics started and finished ASAP as the posting deadling is June 10th. I'm hoping my betas will have my BigBang finished editing soon so I can make any last changes and discuss them with the betas, if needed. I want to make sure it's not 60,000 words of CRAP.

-> [livejournal.com profile] spn_fanmix (hopefully there will be a layout or SOMETHING up this weekend)
-> [livejournal.com profile] super_summer (head over and see if there's an ep there that needs lovin'!)
-> [livejournal.com profile] spn_iconathon (everyone got their icons in?)

OH OH! Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] tvm for the rose! You really didn't have to, darling Ginger. *smooshes you* And LJ comments are still being 'tarded, too.

I have to say things have been going REALLY well for me of late. So well that I think I might need to balance out the powers a little so my karma doesn't get slammed on horrendously in my RL.

How about a little hating to balance the scales? Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] trollprincess:

Name any TV character I know and I'll tell you three reasons why s/he sucks

Please, please keep pimping [livejournal.com profile] super_summer out! There have been a lot of episodes filled but there are still more that only have one or NO people signed up for them! I'd ideally like at least two people for every claim just to keep the week rolling and to cover people who will inevitably not make their deadlines.

Also, I've created [livejournal.com profile] spn_fanmix. There's nothing THERE yet and I haven't worked out all the details yet but I'm hoping it won't JUST be a place for fanmixes. I know people can post their fanmixes in some of the music comms but there aren't any specifically FOR fanmixes and I've been seeing A LOT of SPN ones in the general fanmix communities so I thought it would be nice to consolidate them.

My idea is to also have challenges. Not every week, maybe only one or two a month because I know fanmixes can be rather time-consuming things when you're looking for the perfect music or making art for them. I was thinking themed mixes (a word/picture/phrase/lyric/episode), maybe something to be voted on, perhaps others where you make art for a mix already completed because I know some people feel they don't have any artistic abilities to make some for their own mixes, maybe a group fanmix or votes on what songs would be best to fit a fanmix about _____, etc. If you have any ideas or anything, please leave them here! I'll probably be looking for a co-mod on this, as well, maybe even more than one so if you're interested or think you MIGHT be, drop me a line.

It WILL be a flocked community and anyone can join but people will have to apply for posting access because I see the crap the other fanmix comms go through because of people not reading the rules and I want to avoid that as much as possible.

[livejournal.com profile] spn_harlequin is opening soon! *wibble!foam* It's going to be so deliciously fun!

Finally, a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to [livejournal.com profile] turnyourankle!!!

If there's anything I can do fic or icon (*snort* Like your icons aren't 5000x awesomer than mine) wise- let me know, Monia!

I was putting this off for longer than I should have but now that I've gotten it all worked out I'm REALLY excited.

[livejournal.com profile] super_summer is now open!!!

The claims post can be found here so go wild!

What's [livejournal.com profile] super_summer, you may ask? It's an 11-week review of season 2 with fic, icons, meta (hopefully. *puppy dog eyes*), fanart, fanmixes, etc. Basically anything you can think of to express your fannish heart is allowed. We go week by week and cover each episode (two a week) and a person/theme-ish type thing, as well. There will (hopefully) be weekly AIM chats to review the episodes, hold discussions and whatnot and to help get to know fellow fans.

Sign-ups are open now and posting starts on June 7th. Last summer was a pretty good success and this year, with the fandom being bigger, I'm hoping it'll be A LOT more fun. You can have two claims right off the bat, if you want them, or you can stick with one- your choice.

It would be REALLY, REALLY GREAT if people reading this could pimp this to their own flists. I'm going to post to a couple other communities as well to get the word spread but people posting to their own flists is always the best way. So if you have a second, could you throw out a what-what for [livejournal.com profile] super_summer? Or something actually in vogue and not from 1998?

Hey, everybody!

Know what would be super awesome? If y'all took a couple minutes out of your busy lives and voted in this week's challenge over at [livejournal.com profile] spn_iconathon! Three icons, positive reasons for each and you're done!

In other news my BigBang reached 43,000 last night and I actually finished a porn scene! 200t! If I can do something like that every night for the next seven I can DEFINITELY finish this puppy up. And I don't think there's going to be another 21,000 words, so EVEN BETTER. And if there ARE another 21,000 words. *makes wide, pass out-y eyes* Jesus.

Anyway, go. Vote. Frolic. Enjoy.

I need to dig in and really attack the rest of my BigBang. I'm kind of stalled at 34,000+. BUT. I'm FINALLY getting to the porn. :| It's not 34,000 words UNTIL the porn, I've just written that much before I finally got to it. I haven't finished the stuff in parts 1 and 2 as I intended to last weekend, either. I'm seriously worried about getting this all finished up in the next couple of weeks. :| :|

So there I am, too lazy to go DO something during commercials and I see a flash of someone familiar. And no, I don't mean the red head that used to be a man and is SO wearing a tuck under her scandalously short skirt.

It's already been going FAR better than [livejournal.com profile] dorkdance and I ever hoped it could. Thank you to everyone who has signed up and participated through submissions and voting thus far!

My BigBang fic is coming along. I'm almost at 5000 words but it doesn't feel like it's gelling. I mean, I'm following my outline and stuff but the conversation between the boys feels ... not on at times. I can't really explain it. They're being difficult. I think I might start posting dribs and drabs of all the stuff I'm writing at the moment to a filter or something to bounce ideas off people. Cause I have SO MANY ideas in my head right now SCREAMING to be written that NOTHING'S getting put to paper. I have 27 plotbunnies jotted down and 37 open in google. So there's like 50-ish plot bunnies in total, started or on their way in my Google thing? Um... yeah.

Aaaaand that's fandom!

[ETA] Oh, oh! Go vote for the formation of a Post-Apocolyptic fiction archive, eh? It'd be hella cool!
