tsukinofaerii: Animated image of a skyscraper in New York with STARK written on it (Avengers: Stark Tower)
Since all the cool kids are doing it, I feel like I ought to write an Avengers Reaction Post. I've seen the movie four times and plan to see it at least once more. It's been worth every over-priced ticket and pound of popcorn. If you haven't seen it yet, do yourself a favor and go do so. At the very least, it's a fun romp and a decent way to spend a couple of hours.
Of course, SPOILER WARNING )
Now, off to find pictures of Steve's ass. For reasons.

tsukinofaerii: Steve and Tony kissing (Steve & Tony kissing)
No kittens yet. I've had a serious talk with my cat about how rude it is to keep us waiting like this, but she's a cat. She'll do it whenever she damned well pleases.

I'll probably be putting up my card post soon, so start thinking if you want one. No take-backsies once they're stamped. :P
rambling )
Fic Exchange! Spoilery! )
Finally, a confession.

I OTP Darcy/Loki in movieverse. No, I don't have any fricking clue how this happened, other than that it's beautiful crack and I have a habit to support. I may have to write it, just as soon as I write LokiPreg fem!Loki/Doom.

And then perhaps fem!Loki/Doom/Darcy, as the next logical step.

... Yep. I've been broken.

Like Tony's dick.
tsukinofaerii: Whosoever findeth this hammer, if she be hot, shall wield the power of the gnarly Thor (Whosoevereth findeth this hammer)
It's past 4AM, and I've written 31,000 words since last Friday. The inside of my forearms actually ache from typing. (Probably need to find some way to support them better if this is going to keep on.) And the kicker? I only just finished chapter 5.

(collapses in a pile of fail)
Babbling about fic ahoy )
tsukinofaerii: Missing: Presumed Nekkid (Missing: Presumed Nekkid)
Dearest DW, I promise I'm not ignoring you. But since I can't post at work (really, wtf is with that, work?), I'm forced to post after work. As in, in the evening.Prime writing time. :| I keep meaning to make an "I'm still alive!" update, but then I sit down and think, "Oh, I can write another thousand words" and then end up writing straight through to midnight and scrambling to hit the next k-mark before I have to sleep.
Yeah, it's like that. Also, faint spoilers for fic being written. I babble )
Um. So I suppose this is a heads up that I may end up babbling excessively about a fic that will take a few months to finish. Sorry? D:

Groovy <3

tsukinofaerii: Baby that is not a righteous groove (righteous groove)
I love you all~

And yes, I'm completely and utterly toasted. I can't feel my nose or my fingertips, which means writing legibly is almost impossible. This is how much I love you all. I'm spending more time fixing drunk typos than I am writing them, because I want you to be able to read my love. So there.

Tonight, I shot off explosives (some of them homemade by other people) and drank lots of alcohol. FOR AMERICA. I have soot marks. It's amazing. There was also meat cooked over an open fire, which (now that I think of it) is kind of freaky and weird. The entire scope of human evolution has been to get away from that, but we do it for fun? WTF? It's like camping. WE USED TO LIVE IN THE WILDERNESS. WHY DO WE GO BACK?

Still hacking from being sick a few weeks ago, but I'm finally hacking up things, which is good. I'm kind of worried that it might have been something serious (well, more serious than the strep which started this whole spiral of illness), and any day I'll wake up dead because I couldn't afford to go to a doctor. :\ Ah, well. I sort of plan to die young from something treatable anyway. Que sera sera, welcome to only-technically-not-poverty in the USA.

My cat says HI.

I have... nothing else to say, actually. :\ Bang seems to be on a roll (-ish, always -ish, because I have no confidence in my ability to ever complete anything), but I am not so drunk that I think writing it is a good idea right now. A couple other things seem to be on the burner, but my writing is just weird at the moment. I really have no excuses for it. :\

One of these days, I should do a post about X-Men: First Class, and how much I love it, even if they did... Well, spoilers. D: IT HAD SOME FAIL. SERIOUS FAIL. But someone (Jazzy?) linked an article on Twitter that kind of sort of made it sound like this segment of the movieverse is aiming at portraying mutants as a parallel of the gay rights movement instead of the civil rights movement (racial rights? civil rights doesn't seem accurate for some reason, even though it's the accurate wording as agreed upon by people who make money writing about these sort of things), and I can almost buy that. Not quite, because the waffling makes it pretty clear that the X-franchise is still trying to be all minorities ever. But there's a fairly obvious parallel between the way some mutants can pass and some mutants can't that seems more Gay Rights to me than Civil Rights. I could be wrong, but I don't think there's an equivalent when it comes to racial minorities? (If I'm wrong, someone please tell me, I would love to know.) But at the same time, it's pretty obvious that the movies (and comics to an extent, though I'm clearly much less involved in those since I've only poked the Avengers) invoke the symbols and feel of the Civil Rights movement. Maybe I'm naive, but you can't really invoke one while drawing from the other. Yes, the Civil Rights movement was powerful and is so easily recognized, which makes for an amazing tool from a writer's standpoint, but it's lazy, because the shoe doesn't really fit but they shoehorn it on because it's easily recognizable. And it just sort of drives me up the wall wanting to build these castles in the sky comparisons, only to have them shot down because canon is so god damned fucking heteronormative and pulling from the wrong angle. And it's even worse when they have so much to work with. I mean, even aside from Erik/Charles or obvious gay couples in canon (which I wish they'd have, but aside from those), there's no reason not to touch on the whole concept of passing, and what it means to find out you're one of them and learning to belong or not belong and what about Mystique? She could completely and utterly blend into human society if she wanted, and she chooses not to, and the possibilities there are so amazing and (IMO) not all that unlike a bisexual fighting to not pass while its still so damned easy to and... GAH.

(flails)

As Erik says, "You want society to accept you, but you can't even accept yourself." I can't even BEGIN to start on how that statement hit me. I just sort of choked up and stared. IDK if the screenwriters even know what they did there, but it's beautiful and heartaching and just beyond words.

And that's why I would have gone with Magneto.

I just have a lot of feelings. :(

[personal profile] waterofthemoon is in AIM right now, and she says HI. IL her very much. ♥ She's listened to my drunk all night and been terribly nice about it.

Sober ETA: This makes it clear that DW needs some sort of sobriety check. ♥ Thank you all for not teasing me about my navel gazing and swiss cheese like attempts as philosophy.
tsukinofaerii: Sora: Dork to the max (Dork to the max)
Two years ago today, [personal profile] velithya dragged me kicking and screaming into Steve/Tony fandom. Which is to say, she made a post with a Steve/Tony icon and I immediately started begging for details. This is the longest I've ever been active in a fandom, and I've never really been this active.

In honor of the event, I posted a fic. Many thanks to [personal profile] valtyr, who did a last-second scrub on it.
tsukinofaerii: Fluttershy looking pitiful (MLP: Fluttershy looking pitiful)
(shakes a fist in impotent rage)

I made rainbow cupcakes yesterday. They are very pretty, and also delicious. It's totted up as one of the only things specifically for me that I checked off my To Do list. (sigh) But at least I got the house vacuumed? And dogs washed. Kitchen scrubbed (twice). Laundry done. Bird cage cleaned...

I need to encourage Mary on that Spring Break thing.

Today, in honor of Valentines Day, I'm in a skirt and a pretty red sweater. In honor of my long-standing tradition of being single, I've also snarled at several people who think I "should get out more" and "will regret not dating more when I want kids". There's a couple of assumptions there...

Not that I am really violently against the whole Soulmates! Lurve! Chocolate! spiel, but my relentless cheeriness and baked goods can only survive so many people attempting to direct my life before it crumbles into a growly mess. My mother is usually good about it, but even she got in on things this morning. I blame my brother. Clearly his fertility has made her think of mine. Now his youngest is out of the cuddly phase and into being bitey, adding to the problem.

To be rid of my annoyance, tonight I shall go home and occupy the bath tub, along with a good book. Or possibly the next few episodes of MLP. Or NaNo. Or the sex pollen fic. Something fun.
tsukinofaerii: Bi Pride Dreamsheep  (Bisexual Pride Dreamship)
First, the important part: HAIR. The pictures do not do it justice. I will have to get people to take proper pictures later. Fortunately, lots of people at WinCon are photophiles, so pictures are generally bountiful.

Devon (the cousin) decided to go with a palette. So my hair is not nearly as random and clashy as I would like. It's still pretty though, so that's really what matters. Well, I also managed to dye myself PURPLE last night, which also matters. I always forget to take the foils out with my head flipped upside down. The good news is, I was able to scrub myself down to mostly lavender, and that almost entirely hidden by my clothing. The bad news is, I was able to scrub myself down to mostly lavender. ¬.¬

Enough about my personal humiliation. On to the hair! The colors that were put in are blue, violet, magenta and wild orchid, along with some red that someone somewhere can actually grow. So essentially, I have the bisexual flag on my head. It is awesome.
Pretttttty is dial-up unfrieeeeeeeeeeeendly )
Now, for semi-srs bsns: the anti-Beta.

WinCon has an event known as Fic Idol. It's described thusly:
Warn for leopard porn! No really. Bring the best of your worst stories (1k word limit, all fandoms are fair play) and strap on your lollerskates for this annual classic of all things cringe-worthy and ridic as missy narrates and our judges do their judgy thing. Be ready to laugh for 2 hours straight. Cocktails encouraged (and required for some judges.)
Basically, you write the worst possible fic you can imagine in a thousand words or less, and then [livejournal.com profile] missyjack will proceed to read it aloud to a group of drunken fangirls. Quite naturally, I've decided to give it my best worst shot.

Unfortunately, I can't get through line one of my fic without hanging my head and falling over with something between hilarity and shame. Mostly hilarity. (For reference, the line is "Steve!" Tony yelled and ran into the office, which is weird because Tony never yellsHe's really quiteBut this time it's importantIsn't it?) Does anyone want to brave the waters of typos, impossible characterization, improbable orgies, pages of nothing but ♥ and pictures of fish to give me any suggestions on making it even more unreadable?
tsukinofaerii: Pepper Potts as Rescue (Rescue This)
The door to my office has a "Beware of Dragon" sign taped to it. Yeah, it's like that. Following my recent luck, my coffee maker broke on Monday. RAWR. We have coffee at work, but I am so not functional before I've had my fix. (gentle twitch) No coffee and no sleep make Faerii something something.
Random babble about my fanfic: a normal cut )
Okay, now for the less fanficy stuff. For anyone not in the know, I'm planning on putting together some writing resources for fanfiction. There really aren't any collected resources that I know of. A great many forums and individual topics for specific issues, but it mostly seems to be a case of trial and error. Many of us may have had experience with trial and error—the first one I remember was riding my bicycle into a tree. So, yeah.

It still needs a title. The one I used when discussing it with my mother this morning was The Great Batshit of 2010. I'm pretty sure that's not going to work.
Okay, now for the real point behind this )
tsukinofaerii: Missing: Presumed Nekkid (Missing: Presumed Nekkid)
Visiting Papa, and he's taking a snooze. Soooo... Hello LJ & DW! I should have brought my laptop. Then I could have worked on Pepper/Natasha. (My phone's autocorrect is weird. It keeps trying to change "Pepper" to "leper", even though Pepper is a perfectly good dictionary word.)

I am about to ramble at you, because I am bored and the book I brought is not entrancing enough to keep me entertained.
Read more... )
Okay, I am out of ramble, and Papa awakens. Probably to use the restroom. Icky.
tsukinofaerii: This is how I roll (Panda)
Yesterday, I had The Writing Discussion (Again) with my aunt. I've lost track of how many time I've gone over it with people, but she seems to be especially persnickety on the subject. Normally, I wouldn't even bother dedicating a whole post to this, except this time it took a twist, and I want to evaluate my thoughts before I forget them.
For The Thinky )
I've got my thoughts out there, being read and processed and considered by an unknown number of people. Most of them probably dismissed those thoughts, but maybe in ten years someone will remember back and smile. That's made my life worthwhile. So if, by some unhappy circumstance, I fail to wake up some day soon, I've got that. That's my legacy, and I'm content with it.

Disclaimer: I swear I'm not dying, or ill or anything of the sort! I don't even have an aching jaw right now. (crosses heart) This is just a riff off of a thought I had. No worries, loves. Disclaimed because the last time I posted on mortality, some people worried.

PS. Also, I want to see Killers, solely for the line, "Let's just say I work for the Blah Blah Blah, and they gave me a license to Blah." And the leads are cute. ♥
tsukinofaerii: Oh  *Tony* (Oh *Tony*)
SO! I hit 25k (ohgodsohgodsohgods) on my fic for [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang. My head, it hurts, and I'm all sniffly from the last scene I wrote. (handwaves) Anywho, have a meme, to remind you all that I exist.

Comment to this entry and I'll give you a letter. List ten things you love that begin with that letter and then post that list in you journal.

[livejournal.com profile] seaborne gave me Y. Y has got to be one of the least loved letters of the English language. I really had to stretch for this! D: Could have been worse, I guess. It could have been Q.

01) Young Avengers: Wiccan. Hulking. Just kiss on panel already damnitall!!!!

02) Yurbles: Okay, so I haven't played Neopets in forever. They're still adorable, and if Neo hadn't screwed me over with my account, I'd still be playing. *sigh*

03) Yinsen: Without him, Tony would have probably either drunk himself to death or died in a blaze of glory doing something really dumb. Instead, we have Iron Man. ♥ Yinsen.

04) Yaoi: Self-explanatory. :D

05) Yuri: Also self-explanatory. (Sorry, Het, you start with an H. D: )

06) "Yes" by Jazzypom. Short, but sweet, and Tony says "ghastly". :D

07) Yucca Fruit Jam: Oh gods, I miss this stuff. I used to be able to buy it on street corners in Phoenix. So so so good. Omnomnom. There's just no eastern equivalent.

08) YouTube: Also self-explanatory. :D

09) You Can't Lose Me by Faith Hill: This song? Makes me nostalgic so much. It's currently my mom's ringtone.

10) You people: ♥!♥!♥!♥!♥!♥!
tsukinofaerii: Yaoi now? (Yaoi Nao?)
Sekrit: I had a birthday yesterday! Okay, not so secret, because it's listed openly, but I usually don't bandy it around loudly. (handwave) People forget, or are thoughtless, or whatever, and it's just easier to keep it to myself than deal with it. They didn't know because I never told them, right? So it's not personal! Still loved, let the shiny continue. (Yes, it's a negative view of things, but it works for me.) This does not work so well with my family, but TBH, I'm used to my family spacing on personal issues. (Yes, Emma, I'm still sixteen. Ignore the credit card/car/job/etc. It's all in your head.)

That being said, yesterday was very Twilight Zone )

No writing was done yesterday, but that was deliberate, so I don't count it as a failure to write. Updates in that regard: )
