It's not just me seeing that "which states have you visited" meme pop up on her flist and freaking out at all the red states, right? After a minute I calm down, but every single time my heart freezes up with fear and I think somewhere, somehow the Democrats have fucked it up all over again. I need to find my happy place, you guys, I can't take much more of this craziness.

Anyway, I know I've been sort of MIA lately - due to a number of events and unevents, some more pleasant than others - so here are a few things you should know:

  1. [livejournal.com profile] eleveninches, I am still working on your beta. I am the slowest beta ever! I'm so sorry! But I haven't forgotten it if you were worried, and it should be done by the weekend.

  2. Happyfest entries are due in five days! Fahgoijwfg, woot happy fic! I'll admit, I'm probably more excited about these stories than I am about Halloween candy. John/Rodney > chocolate, y/n? Justify.

  3. Lims voting for this week has started! I have no idea how I managed to fumble my way this far in the competition, but there you have it.

  4. Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday and sent me ecards and virtual gifts. You are all made of awesome, and I would like to extend my squishiest hugs to you for making an otherwise blah day much more bearable. I love you all, you know that?

  5. On that note, a belated birthday rec: Coupling, by [livejournal.com profile] lamardeuse (NC-17). Warning: this fic contains lethal levels of amazing, no I'm serious. Lederhosen! *squeaky noise of glee* Go read it if you haven't already!

  6. While in the city this weekend I bought a ZOMBIE MCCAIN SHIRT. Epic lulz. I've already been stopped three times for wearing it, it's that awesome. When I find my camera, I'll take a picture of me wearing it while making a zombie face, which, not gonna lie, will probably only be terrifying because of the fact that I bashed my nose with a cabinet door today and now it's kind of swollen. Can you dig it.



  7. John Sheppard is fierce.
unamaga: (snerk)
This piece is for the "witch" prompt, completing a line bingo up the left side of my card for [livejournal.com profile] art_bingo. It's gone through so many incarnations I've lost count and the interpretation is...loose at best, but I'm kind of almost proud of it. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] villainny for inspiring this to begin with ("Nnnnny, what should I do for my witch proooommpt?" "SOMEONE DROPS A PUDDLE JUMPER ON THE WICKED WITCH!!!" "Oh dear."), and for holding my hand when I needed it.



Put 'em up, put 'em up! Which one of you first? I can fight you both together if you want. I can fight you with one paw tied behind my back. )
unamaga: (you i love it's you)
I present to you a McShep photo essay in six parts. May it bring you grate lulz.

Part One: The Come On )
unamaga: (*mfeo*)
I continue to fail at social interaction and, in fact, life! Big surprise! Sorry to anyone I was awkward in the general direction of today. Hopefully this bout of ridiculousness will pass soon, or else I might be forced to suffocate myself with pie. It would make for an interesting obituary, at least, right? Yeah.

In lieu of anything more interesting to post about, here's the next piece for my [livejournal.com profile] art_bingo card, filling in the "haunted house" square. It sort of turned into a haunted hotel, but I figure that's about the same thing. Resources here, and thanks again to [livejournal.com profile] villainny for persevering in the face of my frustration towards Rodney's face - at this point, I think I might owe her at least a third of my soul for services rendered. Considering [livejournal.com profile] kashmir1 owns another third, and [livejournal.com profile] amberlynne and [livejournal.com profile] chopchica seem to have an unnatural influence on the remains, I'm not sure where that leaves me. McShepping until my hands fall off?



True love never lives happily ever after - true love has no ending. )
unamaga: (and cover)
Yesterday sucked, so today I'm posting my first [livejournal.com profile] art_bingo entry, whee! Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] villainny for suffering through this in varying stages of completion, and for only raising her eyebrows placidly when I became deranged with exhaustion mid-fursplode. For the "werewolf" box on my bingo card.



Got a curse I cannot lift, shines when the sunshine shifts. )
unamaga: (a ray of adorable sunshine)
This is unprecedented for eleven o'clock on a Saturday morning. I've already been up for a ridiculous number of hours, which is so very not like me, eaten pizza for breakfast (delicious and nutritious!) and fumbled my way through the first few hundred words of my happy fic. What's going on? I don't know. Possibly I've slipped into an alternate dimension. To combat the weirdness, I'm reposting a small comment ficlet written yesterday for [livejournal.com profile] melloniel, whose battle with her recliner was inspiring.

Untitled Chair Ficlet
McKay/Sheppard, R ~620 words

The department store was vast and baffling, and the two of them had spent the better part of that morning and afternoon blindly stumbling from one section to another, tossing whisks and shower curtains into their overflowing cart and arguing over the shade of blue the area rug for the front room should be. )

Annnd, here's a small bunch of icons, mostly of people making amusing or shocked faces. Because that's so how I roll. Twenty eight all together: eighteen John, four Rodney/David, four Teyla, one Elizabeth, one McShep.



Mmmm, faces )

In other news! I've decided to go on a movie binge this weekend, try to catch up on all the culture I missed growing up in the nineties. So far I've watched Singin' in the Rain and Who Framed Roger Rabbit - as, um, I'm sure you all noticed yesterday - and right now I'm twenty minutes into The Maltese Falcon. What else should be on my list, do you think?

*hoardes popcorn and blankets*

whee!

  • The fall fandom free-for-all!

    From [livejournal.com profile] oxoniensis's post: this is a multifandom, fanworks, free-for-all! Basically, request any piece of fanwork you would like – fic, art, icons, video – in any fandom. In return, you offer to make something for someone else. This is the opportunity to see that fic you've always wanted written, to clear the pipes of your own unused ideas by making someone else write them for you, to get new icons for the new season!

    Based on the fact that it has already secured me a John/Rodney bodyswap fic: this is freaking awesome. Plod on over if you'd like and start requesting things. Unless my internet gives out, I'll be trolling the comments. And, uh, just in case, here's me.

  • Um. I seem to be spending a lot of time in Photoshop lately? Woops. This one's for my darling [livejournal.com profile] kashmir1, who stays up till nine in the morning with me to write porn. ♥



    waiting for your moment, G )

Further proof that no living thing is immune to Joe Flanigan: there is a bug in my room. It has been living here for quite some time because it won't stay still long enough for me to a) kill it, or b) capture it. It hasn't been around for the past two days, but today it reintroduced itself to me by repeatedly slamming itself into my laptop screen. And this bug was not flying in willy-nilly. Oh no. It hit Joe square on the mouth twice, and once on the nose. This bug was on a mission. This bug was aiming directly for the100px by 100px square of screen containing Joe Flanigan's face.

I bet plants grow towards him if he stands still.

...Ahaha, vine porn.

ANYWAY, here are some icons, because the puppy I'm watching seems to think my hand is food if it's idle for too long. And now to bed with me! After I reread A Beautiful Lifetime Event! Maybe! I'm so good at this.


unamaga: (snugglepuss)
After having so little to say for such a long time, it's a little weird to be posting things daily again. *explodes into action all over lj!* Anyway.

This fanmix is Exhibit B in the case for John and Rodney running away together to live in a cozy bungalow with a big backyard less than a quarter mile away from the beach where they will collect stray cats in between bouts of incredible sex and - just generally be happy forever and ever, the end. Exhibits C and D to follow. This is what you people get for not discouraging my schmoop addiction.

unamaga: (i have a brilliant idea)
Julie and I have been flailing sporadically about last night's episode almost the entire day, so it's really no wonder it was so easy for her to elbow me into making icons. Boys! I can't even think about it for long without getting incoherent and flapping my arms like a particularly uncoordinated bat.

twelve spoilery icons )

Also, Back to the Future parts II and III have been playing on HBOF all day, and even though the future fashions make me want to cry, I have dutifully watched them both each time and thought fondly of John Sheppard wearing a reflective rainbow baseball cap. Please tell me I'm not the only one who desperately, desperately wants a time travel fic wherein John gets to use all he learned from Marty McFly to save the day while Rodney bitches and groans and asks the sky why he's been cursed with an idiot for a best friend.

Regarding tonight's live chat: my screenname is aneros2065 and I'll be on Trillian (unless AIM ends up working better) from now until showtime. It would probably be a good idea for us to all get together at least half an hour early, since it inevitably takes a few tries to get everyone in the chat at the same time. Anyone's welcome! Drag your friends if you want to! It's going to be a giant, gleeful mass of fangirl keysmashing!

(Chat should be named "BraveLittleToaster", y/n?)

ETA: Bravelittletoaster chat up and running!
unamaga: (love me lately)
Dear fandom,



Love,
Mel
unamaga: (pretty pretty princess)
  1. You know you've been watching too much Farscape when you expect giant space bugs to come out from under your dishwasher and eat your feet. I seriously almost killed myself falling over the kitchen table at seven in the morning because I thought there were space bugs. This show makes me want to arm myself with giant raid bombs.

  2. Speaking of, I desperately want to call someone a freller with a completely straight face and see what happens. :|

  3. For Nny )

  4. This is possibly my favorite John icon in existence.

  5. Anyone on the East Coast want to join a live chat or something for this week's SGA ep? I have a feeling we'll all need some massive, massive fangirl support and huggage to survive intact. Annnyone at all?

    ETA: slight the shrine spoilers in the comments!
unamaga: (the look of love)
Title: Be Cool
Pairing: McKay/Sheppard
Rating: R
Wordcount: ~1,100 words
Notes: A little fluff for [livejournal.com profile] amberlynne and [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon, who had stinky days. Sorry for being massively slow! I hope this cheers you up a little. Huge gooshy love to [livejournal.com profile] villainny for the beta. <3

Ten minutes in, John’s already lost interest in the movie, busy wondering if it would be way too weird and high school to inch his feet under the hem of Rodney’s jeans, press them against warm skin and just claim he’s cold. Rodney would probably tell him to go get some socks. )
unamaga: (take two)
For your virtual pleasure: [livejournal.com profile] face_of_joe is now up and running and taking submissions! Once a day, every day, a face which belongs to Joe and is either ridiculous or adorable (or something in between) will be put up! If you have the incomparable [livejournal.com profile] melloniel friended, you know the pleasure of refreshing your flist and finding a picture of Joe waiting for you at the top. And, well, two Joes a day is better than one, right? Right.

PS, because Julie made me, and Joe Flanigan seems to be the catch phrase around here recently (I promise I'm working on a DHew centric icon/media post!), a really simple wallpaper made with one of [livejournal.com profile] mklutz's caps of the DVD extra pics. Oh, Joe Flanigan. )
unamaga: (come up and see me)
This is all Julie's fault. And, well, Andrea contributed, but since she didn't know at the time, I'll give her a free pass. Cut for sheer size, not to mention slight NWS-ness - and by that, I mean John's wearing fishnets. Original photo found through google search.

I promise one day I'll actually churn out something semi-serious. Maybe.



Just a sweet transvestite )
unamaga: (glad to the brink of fear)
I have the what is probably hugest spider bite I have ever encountered right below the join of my thumb and hand and it is driving me insane. My entire arm itches. My legs are all twitchy and restless. Every single move I make seems to somehow aggravate the strange bruise-like mass it has become and I suspect that soon I will attempt to chop my entire hand off no matter how good it's been to me in the past ajfaigghgjawgk.

But, whatever! Not thinking about it!

My post-con sickness is slowly abating, to the point where I now have a voice again and can go whole hours without sneezing. Amazing! And last night my sister lured me out of my bed with the promise of a CVS run for more sudafed so she could use my student discount at the apple store for her new computer, and I now have an iPod Touch - for free! I'm not sure how this happened, except that it was fully rebated and very, very shiny.

[Poll #1227965]
To wrap this post up a bit, a slightly face-centric icon blurb. Twenty four in full: eight due South, eleven Callum Keith Rennie, three SGA, two Joe Flanigan.


You know, Ray, my father once told me that the sky isn't just above you, that if you look at the horizon you'll see that it actually touches the ground. So if you think about it, wherever you go, you are actually walking in the sky. )
