Bit late to the game, but here I go with post one of the Snowflake Challenge!

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

I posted links to a few of my recent fanworks in my last post already, so forgive me for including two of those works in this rec. They're my most recent, and therefore the ones I'm proudest of at the moment.

1) FANFIC: Jessica Jones Femslash

I'm including this because it's my first femslash fic and I found it quite freeing to write. It was nice to tell a story about awesome women for a change.

Title: Proxemics
Fandom: Jessica Jones (TV)
Rating: PG
Pairing: Jessica Jones/Trish Walker
Word Count: 14,833
Summary: Proxemics: the study of personal space. In which the aftermath of Kilgrave’s death prompts Trish and Jess to redefine some boundaries.
AO3 Tags: Post-Season/Series 01, Self-Worth Issues, Self-Destructive Behavior, Trauma, Recovery, Canon-compliant portrayal of PTSD, some hurt/comfort and some pining but mostly ladies being awesome and overcoming shit, plus a lot of lesbians, explicit and non-explicit, trust me all non-explicit lesbians are in fact lesbians, and of course there’s a happy ending because yuletide

2) FANVID: Ten/Simm!Master Time Lord Angst

Ten/Simm!Master will remain my forever OTP. I know fandom opinions divided on End of Time, but I love those episodes with all my heart. Time Lords are ridiculous.

Title: Weapon
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Tenth Doctor/Simm!Master
Summary: The Master was Rassilon's last weapon in the Time War, but it backfired.

3) FANART: Holmes/Watson Crossdressing

This is very recent and was a quick one-off more than anything, but I quite like the way it turned out, and it did not get a lot of attention on Tumblr, so I'm sharing it here. Besides, Holmes/Watson in any incarnation are always appropriate.

Fandom: Guy Ritchie!Holmes
Medium: Digital art, Photoshop CS5 and Wacom tablet, pencil and watercolor brushes

I love theorizing about characters. :3 Might take me a bit to answer, depending on which character you pick, as I'm kind of busy atm. But I love the concept of this meme, so I didn't want to pass it up.

Pick a fictional character from a fandom I know and I'll answer the following questions.

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her. Likewise if you dislike the character.

2) Is he/she important to the general plot?

3) Can you relate to this character at all? Do they grip you emotionally?

4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?

5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by their relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)

6) Is there anything about the character you would change?

7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how do you see yourself interacting with him/her? (Would you get along well? Fall in love with? Dislike? Friendly rivalry? etc etc)

8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about (if you dislike) to someone who's new to the fandom?

10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?


Things you didn't know about me.

teyla: Seven in a corner shop, hugging groceries and pouting. ([dw] seventh doctor)
I don't usually post meme-type things, but this one amused me.

You are the Seventh Doctor
Description. )

How did Ace die horribly? As far as I remember, Seven took her to Gallifrey and got her enrolled at the Prydonian Academy. Oh well. If she stayed on Gallifrey, I'm sure she died horribly eventually.

I have decided I want to knit this. To this purpose, I bought some knitting needles, some tapestry needles and some yarn today. (I bought blue yarn because the red yarn the pattern wants me to use costs £5 a ball, and I'd need 10 balls. The yarn I bought, I got the same amount of yarn for £7.50. Be awed by my bargain hunting skills.)

Anyway, I'll see how that will go. I've bought all the yarn, so I should have an incentive to actually finish this. I do like the eyelet pattern. I knitted a hat that used it; it looks pretty.

In other news, no news. I've been watching Burn Notice and can't quite decide if I like it. Fiona is awesome. I also acquired the new SPN episode, but I can't get myself to watch it. I want Robocop Sam back. Right now, it feels like they're just rehashing the same emotional arc they based their last four seasons on. But then, it's SPN, so I probably shouldn't be expecting anything else.

Valentine's Day

  • Feb. 14th, 2011 at 2:05 PM
teyla: Ten hugging Simm!Master, Simm!Master looking disgusted. ([dw] doctor/master BFFs)
I don't usually post on Valentine's Day, but I felt like it today. So . . .


Meme? Give me a pairing from a fandom I know, and I will try and come up with a Valentine's Day scenario for them. (I say try because I don't know how creative I feel today. I can give it a shot, though!)


Tarot Cards. And a meme-like thing.

  • Dec. 29th, 2010 at 8:36 PM
teyla: Mary Morstan from Sherlock giving a thumbs-up. ([oft] castiel is out of minutes)
I bought a set of Tarot cards. It's Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot deck, and I freely admit that I picked this one mostly because a) it was created by a dude called Crowley, b) it had pretty pictures, and c) it came in a pocket deck version that is smaller than the usual card size, and was cheaper than all the others.

Tarot cards. )

Speaking of plots, yesterday, when I was in Roanoke with Jasper and [personal profile] sirdoctoroftardis, I remembered a game I used to play with my sister. One player would name a character, or a pair of characters, an object, and an event/something that has to happen. So, for example, player one could name Dean and Castiel, a bible, and a condom being blown up like a balloon. Player two then has to take the character(s), the object and the event and integrate them in a plot outline. Lather, rinse, repeat. It's fun, and sometimes you come up with really cool plots that will spawn bunnies and make you end up wanting to write fic.

So! Let's play? Character(s), object, event, and I will come up with a plot outline. If I successfully manage to do so, I will give you a character, an object and an event in return. (Only if you want me to. You don't have to reciprocate if you don't feel like it.) If you're lucky, commentfic might happen. Maybe.

Ye Olde Icon Meme

  • Dec. 21st, 2010 at 11:23 AM

2. Make a post and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts, creating a never ending cycle of icon squee.

1-ten years from now, you're the producer of a popular show. what's the show about, and who's in it? and how awesome is it? :D
2-what writers, apart from rtd, have had the most influence on you?

5-which places or experiences in the us were your favorites?

Answers for euclase. )

[ profile] mind_the_tardis asked:
- What does marriage mean to you?
- What way would you least like to die? Think common death reasons: car accident, cancer, old age with senility, heart attack, etc. Not "I would least like to be eaten by a shark after being shot several times by mob bosses and dumped in a bay."
- Really, where would you most like to live, once you get out of school?
- What episode by RTD did you like least? (And, if I can cheat, what episode by Moffat did you like best?)
- Will your Cas muse call the Master an 'assbutt' if he threads with him?

Answers for mind_the_tardis. )

[ profile] allaroughdraft asked:
1.) For any or as many characters as you'd like to answer -- what's five things you always try to keep in mind while playing [x character]? (Apparently I'm just going to ask everybody this.)
2.) What does being married mean to you?
3.) If your life was a television show, what would your fandom be like? What would people ship? What sort of cliches would pop up in the fic? What sort of fan would you be, if you were in that fandom?
4.) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be, why would you change it, and how do you think the loss of it/the difference involved would change you overall, for better or worse?
5.) What five shows/movies/books would you never touch, short of someone paying you a million dollars to watch/read them, and why?

Answers for allaroughdraft. )

THAT WERE A LOT OF WORDS THAR. Kudos to everyone who got through all of that.

Meme, and a survey.

  • May. 17th, 2010 at 1:45 AM
teyla: Cartoon Ten typing on top of the TARDIS like Snoopy. ([dw] ten snoopy)
- Leave me a comment saying you want to participate.
- I'll respond by asking you five questions.
- Update your journal with the answers to your questions.

[ profile] daphnie_1 asked:

1) If you went on Mastermind, what would your specialist subject be?
Iii dunno? There's nothing specific I'm good at; I'm more a general knowledge kind of person. Maybe geography. Or Doctor Who. If I can pick a television show. I have to admit that I've never watched a complete episode of Mastermind.

2) If you could run away with: The Doctor, the Master, the Rani or Romana, who would you choose?
The Doctor. The Master's too nuts, the Rani's too fixated on science, and Romana's a pain in the ass. Yes, I would even run away with Four. I would probably push him off a cliff, though.

3) As a future television producer, which TV show do you think has had the most defining effect on you?
Definitely Doctor Who. Or, to be precise, RTD's era. It was the first television show that gripped me not only on a fannish level, but on a level where I looked past the characters at the production team and decided that yes, this is what I want to do. The confidentials helped--watching them, and seeing how much effort people put in this project, and how many people are involved in creating it, made me realize that this is a process I would love to be part of. So, yes, RTD's Who.

4) You have the chance to say anything to any historical figure. Who do you pick and what do you say?
Even if I could talk to historical figures, I probably would fail to see the point. Nothing I could say would make a difference, since history has already happened. That said, I might go back and tell Gandhi that I think he was a wonderful, smart person, and that I hope that his work and his ideas will continue to be remembered far into the future.

5) What do you think makes a good story?
This gets a cut because it's long. )

Also, if you're a role player; an f-lister linked to a survey an academic friend of hers is conducting as part of her research for her master's thesis. It's about gender and sexuality of players and characters in role play games. It took me about an hour to fill out. If you have Thoughts On Role Play, you can totally knock yourself out in this survey.

Comment, and I'll give you a colour. And then you post ten things that colour that you like.

[ profile] recrudescence gave me "brown". If you want a color, please tell me so in your comment--so feel free to comment even if you don't want to do this meme.

Movie Quote Meme

  • Mar. 6th, 2010 at 5:43 PM
teyla: Calvin rejects the quality of network programming but still watches it. ([misc] c&h television)
Meme stolen from [ profile] wihluta.

1. Pick 10 of your favourite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Fill in the film title once it's guessed.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions!

It's actually much harder than it sounds to pick your 10 favorite movies. The ones in this meme aren't necessarily my all-time favorites ever, but they're movies I like and appreciate and would watch again. Also, feel free to throw some quotes my way in the comments! Guessing movie/TV series quotes is always fun.

Haven't done one of these in a while. Please, stroke my ego! :D? In other news, two people linked me to this today:

You think they were trying to tell me something?

God, internet, I am so goddamn unmotivated and bored today. TELL ME A STORY. Or post a funny gif or a macro in the comments, or something. FREE FOR ALL. 3, 2, 1, go for it.

teyla: Mary Morstan from Sherlock giving a thumbs-up. ([oft] castiel is out of minutes)
Give me a character from any fandom I know at least fairly well, and I will tell you:

B) The runner up
C) The anti-ship
D) My unpopular fannish opinion on said character
E) One person he/she never fell in love with, and why.

And, so you can get something out of this as well, I'll also tell you which television, movie or book character you remind me of. With pics, if I can manage.

Two Memes

  • Nov. 12th, 2009 at 3:06 AM
teyla: Cartoon Ten typing on top of the TARDIS like Snoopy. ([dw] ten snoopy)
One I snagged from [ profile] tinnny and the other from [ profile] mind_the_tardis.

1) Post a list of up to 20 books/movies/anime/TV shows/video games/bands [fannish etc.] that you've had an obsessive fannish love or interest in at some time in your life.
2) Have your f-list guess your favourite character/member from each item.
3) When someone guesses correctly, strikethrough the item and put the name of your favorite character next to it.

Twenty items, coming up. )

And to keep with the trying-to-write-more idea, here's a drabble prompt meme.

1. Put your mp3 player on shuffle and take the first 25 (I went for 10) songs it gives you.
2. Link to the lyrics. (And I also linked to the songs. Because I'm just a nice person like that.)
3. Let your friends assign you a song and character(s) to write a drabble to. (Is this point awkwardly worded or what?)

Characters/Pairing: Whoever you feel like throwing at me. I THINK COLONY SHOULD BE A TRANSFORMERS DRABBLE. Disregarding the fact, of course, that I've never seen any of the movies or read any of the comics. >_> (Terminator, then, maybe?)
One Rule: Uh . . . no rules. Go for it.

Ten songs. )

Bed now. Drabbles tomorrow. Night!

Confession meme

  • Aug. 25th, 2009 at 3:57 AM
teyla: Ten and Donna on top of the roof in Runaway Bride. ([dw] ten/donna)
I've been talking to a lot of people over the last few days who were really down. Not just having a bad day, but really tired and worn out by everyday life. I get that, being down, and I know it sucks. It's horrible. And there's nothing you can do about it, not really.

Right now, I'm not down. I'm about to go on an awesome vacation, and I'm doing a course that even after a year is still keeping my interest. All the more, every time I talk to someone who's not doing so well at the moment, I feel that I should do something. I should help somehow. Because apparently, I seem to have found out about some trick to not be down that I could share with them, which would make their lives so much easier to bear. That's nonsense, of course, but it's an emotional response I have to seeing people depressed--wanting to talk to them, and wanting to help.

Now, I don't know how useful this will be to anyone, but I thought I could give it a try. I'm screening all comments to this post; I'll turn anonymous comments on, and IP logging off. And if anyone feels like they need to get something off their chest, please, leave a comment. If you don't want me to reply, put a note at the bottom of your comment and I won't. I also won't talk to you or to anyone about what you put into your comment outside of this post, unless you want me to.

Free-for-all confession meme; have at it. I kind of got the impression that quite a few people could use something like this right now. <3

Is it Monday? It's not Monday. The Doctor says it isn't, and the Doctor speaks TRUFAX. Everybody come party in the TARDIS, because the TARDIS is timeless and has never seen a Monday in her whole long existence.


Feel free to tag in with anything that isn't RP as well. COMMENTPORN. Or just commentfic. OR YOU CAN ALSO JUST TALK TO ME. I will talk to you, too. *nods* AND PIMP IT YO. EVERYBODY NEEDS LESS MONDAY.

And now I will go to work where there will be no internets for 8 hours, hur hur hur. I EXPECT TAGS FOR WHEN I GET BACK.

Remember this meme that was all over LJ about a month ago? Yeah, I forgot that I requested a tag for it as well. So, this is me, answering a month-old meme. >_>

Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them on your LJ and explain what they mean to you. If you simply wish to comment on something I've said but don't want to participate in the meme, that's fine. I will only give you five words if you specifically comment you with "Words!".

Explodedpen gave me: Creative, The Doctor, Germany, Fandom, Stephen King. )

I'm at [personal profile] neery's, and there's going to be a fangirl meet-up with [profile] tinnny, [profile] zeroambi and [profile] aryshtin. Should be fun! And then, on Monday, work again. Ugh. But I booked my flight to the US--31st of August until 22nd of September. I am very much looking forward to it! Which is making work bearable.

Meme, because I'm trying to avoid writing.

  • Jun. 28th, 2009 at 9:42 PM
teyla: Mary Morstan from Sherlock giving a thumbs-up. ([dw] ten shades)
Stole this from a couple of places on the f-list.

01. Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
I snack while I do anything. >_> Heh, actually, that's not true. But I never just eat, so yeah, I've eaten and read at the same time. I don't always eat when I read, though. I do usually have a cup of coffee nearby.

Read the rest. )

And while we're talking about books, lets play the favorites game. What's your favorite book is an easy question, but answering it honestly is damn hard. Favorites change every other day, don't they? I do have favorites, though. My favorite book is still Needful Things by Stephen King. Not because I think it's the best book ever written, or without fault, but because it made a huge impact on me when I read it, and because I still admire the ease with which King manages to build a whole community and develop a whole town full of different characters without making it seem too constructed or forced.

This would actually be a tie with Hamlet, but since Hamlet is a play, Needful Things wins. Hah hah, I think I just made every literary critic in the world shiver by putting Shakespeare and King on the same level.

So, f-list, what about you? What's your honest answer to the favorites question? Do you have one at all?

Good Morning Starshine

  • Apr. 28th, 2009 at 7:33 AM
teyla: Mary Morstan from Sherlock giving a thumbs-up. ([dw] geek)
It's 7:30 am and I am SO AWAKE OMG. I spent all night writing a website for a uni assignment. I shouldn't have that much fun writing a website for people I don't know about a topic that doesn't interest me in the slightest. I'm a geek. *pushes glasses up nose*

Just me rambling about nothing in particular. )

ANYWAY. Have a meme, stolen from [ profile] theformofstars.

Comment with one of my characters and one of yours, and I'll write a letter from mine to yours (preferably one I'm at least vaguely familiar with).

My characters are all on my profile, except [ profile] prince_arthur from Merlin, who I've never really played, but would be willing to write letters for, and [ profile] liams_choice, my OCs Ray and Cliff, who aren't really fully formed characters yet. I could probably manage a letter, though.

First three commenters will (probably) get a response.

Interview Meme--now with 100% more tl;dr

  • Apr. 2nd, 2009 at 5:01 AM
teyla: Cartoon Ten typing on top of the TARDIS like Snoopy. ([dw] ten snoopy)
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me!"
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will post the answers to the questions (and the questions themselves) on your blog or journal.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions. And thus the endless cycle of the meme goes on and on and on and on ...

[ profile] mind_the_tardis interviewed me and asked the following questions:

1. What's the best thing about real life, to you? Where/when does it come closest to living up to its potential?

Two occasions: travel and fangirl meet-ups. )

2. If you were handed a fobwatch and told that you should open it, dammit, 'cause you are a Time Lord and awesome and burning at the heart of the universe and have phenomenal cosmic powers and oncome like a storm and etcetera, would you open it? Even if you didn't know what kind of person you'd be after? (Hey, you might end up the Master. Or Runcible.)

I'd open it in a heartbeat. No question.

3. What's your favorite book and why?

That's a hard question. )

4. If you somehow don't manage to grow up to be RTD, what else would you settle for doing?

Cry and sniffle and tell everyone that my life is meaningless. )

5. Bad television. Why watch it? (New LtM this evening! \o/)



Meme and Prompts

  • Mar. 26th, 2009 at 11:42 PM
teyla: Mary Morstan from Sherlock giving a thumbs-up. ([actor] dylan moran)
1) Comment to this and I will give you 3 people. (If you want me to.)
2) Provide pictures and the names of those 3 people.
3) Label which you would marry, shag, and throw off a cliff.
4) Post this meme with your answers.

[ profile] wihluta gave me Sam Tyler, James Wilson, and Ray Kowalski.

Pretty men. )

Also, I'm taking prompts. I really want to write about my OC, but since most of you don't know him, fandom prompts are cool, too. Or you can drop me a line on AIM and I can tell you ALL ABOUT RAY THE OC. Ahem.

Anyway. Prompts! Hit me with anything you'd like to read--I'm sort of craving a really cliché H/C plot, so if you have any good ideas in that area, be sure to let me know. Or anything else! Fandom doesn't matter, either--I should have heard of it, but if I haven't, well, then... I probably won't write your prompt. Eh. ;)

I can't guarantee that I'll write anything for your prompt. But I will give it a try!
