So, this is probably the worst week I have had in a long time. I've managed to (so far): have a spectacularly emotional break down in the middle of the cafeteria; forget half my uniform for two days running; break my calculator half an hour before a conversions test in Breads; nearly get hit by the bus for the third day in a row while trying to flag it down; unwittingly offend half the people that I talk to on a regular basis; get stuck with the slowest goddamn girl in Breads kitchen, who proceeded to slowly knock half my ingredients off the table one by one and then try to steal my brioche couronne even though my name was CLEARLY right there.

There is more! I could go on!

Blah. At least I have a Julie to look forward to tomorrow, and a weekend of picnics and snuggles in my near future. God knows if I don't get some quality snuggles in the next few days I'll probably end up eating a pound of chocolate and terrifying the neighbors with primal scream therapy.

Anyway, here's that meme Darsy tagged me for a few days ago:

1). List your favorite female characters.
2). Explain why you like them or what makes them particularly awesome.
3). Post a picture and your favorite quote.
4). Tag five people to do the same.




Only four, but they're good! )

I can't manage anymore right now because I have class in a couple minutes and don't anticipate having the time later on (OH GOD PROJECTS WHY), but Teyla would totally be on there with extra hearts, and so would Miss Price from Bedknobs and Broomsticks.
unamaga: (pay attention self)
I have a lot of things to say and very little brain power with which to say them! Thus, I use bullet points.

  • I've been incredibly absent from the internet lately, I know. I'm not sure when it happened, but somehow I've acquired this aversion to my computer and started finding all different excuses to be away from it. This is not like me! In an attempt to get back into things, because being away from my flist makes me sad, my twitter account has been resurrected. Hopefully it'll keep me more in touch with people, and if I am an utter idiot and forget to do face_of_joe people can tweet angrily at me until I remember.

  • Today is hereby declared Post-A-Puppy Day. Because I say so.


    This puppy loves you unconditionally.

  • [livejournal.com profile] ladycat777 tagged me ages ago for this. I'm not tagging anyone else, because I'm pretty sure everyone's already seen this going around, but if you want to do it consider yourself poked. )
unamaga: (time may change me)
I swear I'm not dead or anything. I've been poked by a few needles and sneezed through two boxes of tissues and become far too emotionally invested in our stock of Sudafed, but I'm otherwise okay. So let's play catch-up! How've you all been? What incredible romance and intrigue have I missed? I've been a terrible LJ friend and also incredibly bored (have you noticed that Spike only plays CSI marathons when you have other things to watch? I sense a deep evil in that station), feel free to babble at me. Also:

Drop me a comment, and I'll tell you the first thing that comes into my mind when I think of you, whether it makes sense or not.

Or, if you are afraid I will answer with NINJA MONKIES!!!, make some icon requests! :D

hidey-ho!

unamaga: (omg i have to blog this)
I promise I'm going to get to comments tonight if it kills me. I have Quantum of Solace queued up (again! - stop smirking, Julie), tea, and gingerbread cookies on which to nosh; I am SET like a set thing. So if you end up with comments in your inbox to things you said weeks ago, my apologies. Er, until then: that icon meme thing! )

In conclusion, Laura Cadman.

hoo-ey

Wow, that meme didn't last long! Uh. My only excuse is the sudden frenzy of baking I've found myself caught up in. Cookies, brownies, blobs of sugar that should resemble something edible, more cookies - my kitchen is a scene from some sort of ancient baking war. The other night found me absolutely covered from chin to thigh in dough after dropping the bag of flour into the mixing bowl by accident. Woopsie! In that same vein, a lot of the cards I've sent out are probably going to get there late, sometime early next week-ish. I am a master procratinator, ask anyone.

Day Two: Wintuk

My mother, sister, and I went into the city to meet Mike (my mother's boyfriend) and his two kids for the first time. Somehow, my mom thought Wintuk would be a good ice breaker? I don't know what the thought process was, but whatever: I got to go to Cirque Du Soleil for free. The show was wonderful, if much smaller scale-wise than Allegria, and my mother spent most of it oscillating between amazement and terror, so that was fun.

I then bonded with Mike's youngest by reading Dr. Seuss to her in a crowded diner. I am indeed that awesome.

Day Three: Vegas cap - not spoilery )
unamaga: (doesn't mean that i am dead)
So I'm not dressed up tonight, per say, but I've decided that I'm the sole survivor of the apocalypse. My jeans have enough holes in them for that to be plausible. \o/

Ahahahahahahahha!! Trying not to scare the trick-or-treaters away with my cackling, but it's hard. Beware the sharpened brains!

And, okay, speaking of trick-or-treaters, what is with the rudeness in the little people lately? Some tiny child in a cowboy costume hit me in the face with the door trying to grab more candy from the bowl! And then a different tiny child in a princess fairy costume tried to take all the frosty coupons for herself! Kids today.
unamaga: (don't mess with torren's mommy)
I've gone and signed up for [livejournal.com profile] art_bingo because apparently there are no limits to my insanity. It's fun, so far! Although in the one I'm working on now Rodney's face is being problematic and refusing to proportion itself like it should. I think I might make an art beta filter. Not too sure how often I'd use it, since I have a tendency to work straight through on something until it's done, but it would definitely be useful for cases like this, where I cannot figure out why Rodney looks twelve or how to fix it. SIGH, RODNEY MCKAY. SIGH. So difficult.

Anyway, I know I haven't answered comments on my last post (I am made of fail), but I'll get to those in the next hour or so if no random pastrami monster rises up from this sandwich to eat me, so. Possibly a meme? Maybe? I'm a bit too curious about this one to pass it up, even though I'm not exactly a serious writer.

What, if you read my fic, is/are the characteristic(s) that stand(s) out the most?

unamaga: (workin it)
Because [livejournal.com profile] exsequar tagged me and I can deny her nothing:

List 10 songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now, shaping your summer. Post these instructions in your LJ along with your 10 songs. Then tag 10 other people to see what they're listening to.

In which I ramble about musics! )

Aaaannnd, a batch of icons! Thirty six in total: seventeen August Rush, six DHew/Rodney, two JFlan/John, five Teyla, two Ronon, four CKR/RayK. I feel like somehow I should turn this into a Christmas Song. And a RayK in a pear tree?



icons! )

  1. Voting for challenge two is going on over at [livejournal.com profile] sga_lims! Yes, I was crazy enough to take part this round. Go forth and vote!

  2. Love meme! I could definitely use some cheeriness. Like woah.

  3. I was originally rooting exclusively for the away team over at [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match, but it's really hard to hold onto that kind of bias when there are great stories coming from all sides. I'm still poking through them, so this isn't a complete list of awesome, but here are a few links to the ones I've really enjoyed so far:

    Infiltration
    Summary: "I’m hopelessly in love with you," Rodney said, and rolled his eyes.
    Hee, hee, heeeeee, so classically adorable and - boys!

    With Bones Like That
    Summary: “I’m Dr Rodney McKay,” she said slowly. “We were at Berkeley together. You majored in mechanical engineering because you’re an idiot who wanted to go to war rather than use your brain for something worthwhile. I’m Rodney McKay with breasts, okay? It’s not that hard to grasp."
    Fja;goiawg YAY temporary genderswap! \o/

    Blink
    Summary: I am going to tell you a story. About Dr. McKay and how he bought an eye from me, and how that one small act led to the strangest night in my entire life.
    'Imaginative' doesn't even do this story justice.

    Good Neighbor Policy
    Summary: His whole life, home had been something that happened to other people.
    Incredibly sweet and perfect; definitely leaves you with the warmest, happiest glow in your belly.

    Never Going Home
    Summary: John believes in miracles, in last minute saves, in the impossible. He's lived all of them. He also believes in small, random things that kill people; in the end you don't see coming, in the impossible-in-a-bad-way.
    Even though it's written beautifully, major owie warning. I used up half a box of tissues.

    Near Things
    Summary: "I am not risking the possibility of showing up at my own wedding with a hangover!"
    Despite the summary, it's boys being boys all the way. So absolutely darling, god.

phwoar, bb

THE SECRET LOVAHS MEME
I just like the -ah better. It adds a certain cheesiness that I think anything relating to me should really have. Go forth, secret lovahs. Go forth!

ETA: Well, maximum comments reached! If you still have something you'd like to say, I've turned off IP logging. :>
unamaga: (sheepard)
Fine. I, too, bow to the whims of the meme.

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on yaoi, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc. Repost in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other.
unamaga: (come up and see me)
Hell yes, I could use some love, you guys: The Post | My thread.

Speaking of love, apparently the track boys are my comfort zone, so (with [livejournal.com profile] kashmir1's help) I've started on the sequel to Stars of Track and Field in earnest. Man, I missed these boys. Snippet! )

Oh, and just in case you live under a rock or your flist has failed you miserably: Sweet Charity bidding is now open! There are too many awesome people to name up for auction, so go on, bid your little hearts out. ♥

While recovering from my brush with Joe Flanigan-induced death, I had a thought: most of you I barely know anything about, even fannishly. This thought saddened me. So! Copy and paste if you'd like (it's conveniently coded!), or feel free to go all crazy and build me a time line. Extra points awarded for squiggly fonts.


<b>1. What was your first brush with fandom - TV, movie, book, anime, etc.? How old were you?</b>

<b>2. How did you find fandom (as an internet entity)?</b>

<b>3. Was livejournal your first fannish home? If not, how were you involved? </b>

<b>4. How many fandoms have you been in since your first? If you can, list them. </b>

<b>5. If you participate in fandom actively (aka, you aren't a lurker), what's your role? Author, artist, beta, commenter, enabler, etc.</b>

<b>6. If you're a slasher, what was your first slash pairing and why? Did you find slash first?</b>

Ahaha, this sounds like a sex questionnaire, woops. (ETA: um, sorry about that coding glitch! Fixed now.) I'll start! )
unamaga: (sometimes i feel vulernable. alien.)
Fics posted this year: 63, not including commentfic
Fics written this year: 81, not including commentfic
Fandoms: -Supernatural/RPS [45] -Stargate: Atlantis [18]
First fic of the year: Give it Time (Sam/Dean, PG-13)
Longest to date: Stars of Track and Field (McKay/Sheppard, R) ~6,750 words

I need to stop writing so damn much. )

I'm not entirely sure if I'm going to be posting any fic between now and the first, but I'm hopeful. Plane rides are always long and boring, right? Now I go off to run around like a headless chicken, do wash, wrap presents, and pack. :D
unamaga: (beware!)
  • I'm kind of in love with this meme: who do you ship me with?

  • Man, I don't know what I did last night, but my body is sore in really weird places, like my ass. I just made cookies and put ribbon on the tree! I didn't even drop anything in the shower or bang into walls without my contacts in. What the hell. I think someone should magically appear and give me a loving hot-oil massage. And by "someone" I mean "Rodney McKay".

  • Jules and I had a conversation the other day about our ideal McShep fic, and I rambled on at length because it took me forever to think of something that hadn't already been done perfectly. This fandom is spoiling me, I swear. But, uh, do any of you have a fic in your head that you wish someone would write?

oohh yeah

unamaga: (show your world to me)
My thread at the stalker meme. Go stalk me! I am really oblivious to my surroundings! I will never see you coming if you wear a bush!

In other news, I somehow managed to miss one of my midterms. No idea HOW, but, yeah, really not good. Hopefully the professor will give me a chance to retake it, otherwise I am totally and completely fucked up the ass. God, I hate school. I just want to skip to graduation and then spend my life working at a library or my own bookstore, going to protest rallies, and writing erotic short stories. I'm not asking for much, world.

Oh, speaking of erotic short stories. A while back, [livejournal.com profile] immoralilly and I were talking about putting together a book of original one-shots by fandom writers. The published erotica market, on the whole, is truly and appallingly bad, you know? Fan authors could do so much better. And, okay, probably not that much of an original idea, but leave me my illusions.

[Poll #1080090]
I think most stories would have to be between 1,500 and 5,000 words, and, while they wouldn't have to be incredibly graphic, there should definitely be actual description of the sex and not just a tasteful fade to black. What would be the point, right? If there's enough of a response, I'll recruit a few of you to help get a more concrete idea of how this thing'll work, and then make another post with a more solid idea of what's going to happen.

This post is just really to gage interest, but I would love it if you could all pimp it out! ♥
unamaga: (dw stamp of approval yo)
It's frickin' freezing in here, Mr. Bigglesworth. :(((

unamaga: (trembly. lower. lip. (homg))
Point the first: this icon, guys, omg. Look at Sam's mouth, LOOK. He is so prettie, I want to pet him and maybe also kiss him. A lot. With tongue.

Point the second: I have four - or five? ahgg - spider bites all down my right arm, starting at my neck and meandering along until my wrist. This is extraordinarily displeasing, because they itch worse than sand flea bites and the calamine lotion is only good for ten minutes of relief per application. I feel a bit like Rodney because I've complained to anyone who'll listen, but, dude. Spider.

Point the third: I have a twitter account! Come on and join in the fun, because there is NO SHAME in spamming on twitter, I have learned. You just updated forty minutes ago? So what! Do it again. It's freeing. Almost like wearing no pants. \o/

Point the fourth: you guys know I adore you, but just in case some of you need that extra bit of jungle lovin', here are the answers to the love meme from a few entries back.

It's a Love Fest! )
