I feel like I haven't posted a proper entry for ages. Sooooo, on the tail-end of some excellent high spirits, you're going to get one now, oh yes. :D

Today I got half of my hair loped off. I am thrilled with it. :DDD I am also going properly grey by now, sadly (it's genetic, both my mum and grandmother's hair went grey very early on -- my grandmother was twenty-six at the time, apparently, so I'm doing pretty damn well to have held off until I'm thirty), and my scalp is hellishly sensitive these days, so I have made the executive decision to stop colouring my hair. On the advice of my hairdresser, however (who is spec-fucking-tacular, I love her so much, she is indispensable) I got highlights instead. They're not blond, but a pretty caramel colour that goes beautifully with my dark-chocolate-coloured hair. I feel like a million bucks, no shit. There's been a spring to my step today like you can't imagine. It kind of helps that today is the first proper day of spring, really -- it's almost 15 C outside, 19 C in the sun, and I am just. FUCK, I HAVE MISSED THIS FEELING. :))))))

I also got a bunch of other shit done, lots of errands I've been neglecting. Got a couple new tops, too, a mascara, FOUND SOME DECENT WRITING PAPER, HOLY SHIT, I'VE ONLY BEEN LOOKING FOR A YEAR AND A HALF, got something sorted that I have also been meaning to get to in forever, and on the way back I also bought two beautiful roses for the balcony -- they are the colour of cognac. I can't stop staring at them. :D I can't wait to plant them!!

Guys. I am bowled over by the response to the puppy Clint fic. WOW. Just, all of the love, I cannot. ALSO GUYS LOOK. LOOK WHAT [personal profile] essouffle DREW. DJFHGLSKJDFLDFJG IT'S LIKE S/HE REACHED INSIDE MY HEAD AND TOOK THE IMAGE OUT OF IT AND PUT IT DOWN ON PAPER. JFHGDFSKJGHKJDSFHSFJG I AM SO IN LOVE WITH IT, THIS IS SO THEM I CAN'T GET OVER IT. *___________*

So now that puppy Clint is out of the way, I should really knuckle down and start making sense of the tangle of notes I have for the cap_ironman reverse big bang. *determined face* Which is what I'll be doing now, while I'm sat in my new favourite coffee shop that is quite delightful. :) I leave you with the following interesting thing.

I've been meaning to boost the signal for, let's see, ten days now? UGH, THIS IS PATHETIC, SELF. My friend [livejournal.com profile] rosalui is putting a project together. Let me just c/p her description of it here. It's extremely interesting, and I know it's a topic that is very close to the heart of a few people on my flist. So you guys, if you like, she's looking for volunteers to take part. Seriously, Rosa is a wonderful person, and her videos are legendary, she's got such a deft hand with editing. I know she will give the project all she's got, so it would be awesome to get more people to take part. :)

In Rosalui's words:

We grow up surrounded by photographs of women with every flaw carefully photoshopped out - and then are told that we can be as thin as they are, as beautiful as they are, as flawless as they are, if only we try harder. We are taught that beauty is essential to happiness, to success, to our professional lives. We are taught that weight is the best and most important measure of health. We are constantly reminded that we are companions, to be admired - the pretty prize the guy strives for, the superheroine with heels and cleavage windows.

We are just a couple of girls with laptops and our own piles of insecurity. But we want, in our own small way, to speak out. And we are putting together a video.


Cut for the peeps who would like to find out more )

The whole post is here. If you fancy taking part, and even if you just find the subject interesting, I urge you to go take a look. <333

FOR YOUR TIME.



HOLD ON TO YOUR OVARIES



I STILL DON'T GET HOW HE EXISTS, I DO NOT.



LAST NIGHT I DREAMT THAT I HAD TO KISS TOM HARDY. LIKE, SAVE THE WORLD HAD TO (IT WAS A CHORE, LET ME TELL YOU, I RESISTED SO HARD. >.>;;). AND I CALLED HIM TOMMY, AND HE WAS REALLY NERVOUS. SUBCONSCIOUS, I LOVE YOU.



WHAT EVEN IS HE, I CAN'T.


Also, one last pretty. This is FOREVER MY CLINT/PHIL THEME SONG, not to mention my theme song. :) [livejournal.com profile] someidiothasice, this one's for you, baby, you'll know exactly what I mean. :')))))

sirona_fics: (clint/phil)
OH MY GOD YOU GUYS YOU SPOIL ME SO MUCH. <3333333333 Thank you, for all the messages since yesterday. They've kept me going, your generosity of spirit, your love. It has been a week and no mistake, but with you I know I'll always end up on top. <333

I can't even, you guys, I got three fics written for me since yesterday. THREE. :'))))))) You humble me. AND THEY ARE ALL FICS OF MY HEART. The more I spend around you, the more I convince myself that I could never find better people than all of you, which is something that arsehole will never have, so. I actually don't have the words to express how much I appreciate all of you. So I will share my bounty, in the hopes that it makes others as happy as it made me. :) And as appreciation, it's looking like I'll be able to post that Clint/Phil D/s fic later tonight, so I'll be able to give something back to all of you! <3 In the order I got the notifs:

Ten Words Or Less by the inimitable [livejournal.com profile] gyzym

This has Clint/Coulson as well as ensemble, and it made me grin like an absolute idiot. :D So, so utterly happy-making. <333

Tea and Sympathy by [livejournal.com profile] rubygirl29
--Clint Barton is having a bad day. Tea and sympathy help. So does a kiss.

You guys, this is the most adorable thing ever. UGH THEY ARE SO SMITTEN WITH EACH OTHER JKFHLKSJHGDFLGH I CAN'T. <3333

A Different Kind of Love Story by [livejournal.com profile] someidiothasice
--He doesn't delude himself. He knows that the life he leads, the life of an agent, isn't fair to a romantic partner.

This is, without question, something I will carry with me for a long time to come. It somehow manages to reach inside me and gives voice to all the feelings it finds, all the secret hopes and dreams. It made me cry, in that wonderful 'oh thank fuck, someone gets it' way. I can't recommend it enough. <3333 Probably one of the kindest things a person has ever done for me without even knowing they were doing it. :)

Also a supernice person gave me Dreamwidth paid time, to which I say, THANK YOU, SIR/MADAM, YOU ARE ASTOUNDINGLY WONDERFUL. <3333

Basically, I am the luckiest person to have all of you. And I'd be a fool to believe some wanker over all of you. So I shan't make that mistake. ;)

In other news, turns out my cousin is coming to visit this weekend, so I anticipate a very pleasant Friday night and Saturday all round. \0/ To celebrate, I shall make cupcakes (AND THINK OF COULSON AS I BAKE, Y/Y/MFY? ;P) and indulge myself in happy-making things. :D
sirona_fics: (hunky army smiling cap)
JESUS CHRIST, YOU GUYS, ALL THOSE HEARTS, I CAN'T.

YOU KNOW I LOVE ALL OF YOU TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH, YES? ♥♥♥♥♥ UGH WITH YOU LOT ON THE CASE HOW IS ANYONE SUPPOSED TO FEEL ANYTHING OTHER THAN BLISSFULLY HAPPY? :')

Thank you. Seriously. This outpouring of love makes me all twitterpated and stammering and so, so loved. :') YOU ARE ALL THE BEST THINGS EVER.

Special thanks go out to Anonymouse, who made me giggle giddily into my coffee this morning and blush like a fourteen-year-old girl. My first Valentine, likely ever (at least in recent memory), and it came from no other than Clint bloody Barton. ANONYMOUSE, YOU KNOW ME SO WELL. :DDDDDDDD <333333

Anyway. The point of this post is that I have been overwhelmed with support and love and everything that is good in the world. And I'm feeling heaps better this morning, you'll be pleased to hear. :) That ought to be the worst of it for this month. There's always one day that I want to fucking die, and after that it tends to get settled. Now just the pains and aches to look forward to -- which, as many people will know, are much easier to deal with -- yes, it hurts, but it doesn't make you want to crawl under a pillow fort and never come out.

RIGHT. OKAY. TODAY IS NOT A GOOD DAY FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE, FOR REASONS. And I seem to have recovered just in time to do something about it. The other day [livejournal.com profile] radioaches and I were talking about how WE SHOULD TOTALLY HAVE A FANDOM 14TH FEB THING WHERE ALL THE SINGLE LADIES (AND GENTS) DO SHIT FOR EACH OTHER. Because frankly I'm sick to death of Valentine's day. I WISH TO CELEBRATE SINGLES DAY. And [livejournal.com profile] radioaches said that VALENTINE'S DAY IS BORING AND IT SHOULD BE "WE'RE ALL AWESOME" DAY ANYWAY.

SO I THOUGHT WE SHOULD. WHO'S WITH ME?

Fun fact for you: in my country, today isn't just Valentine's Day; it's also Trifon Zarezan, which is the day set aside on the calendar that celebrates vineyards, pubs, pub landlords, anyone involved in the production of Wine, in whatever role. (Also Gardeners' Day, and, strangely enough, Falconers' Day, but those kind of lurk in the background mostly.) IT IS ALSO A DAY WHEN WE TRADITIONALLY GET PISSED. BECAUSE IT'S NOT JUST ALLOWED -- IT'S EXPECTED. A bit like St Paddy's Day. :D I JUST THOUGHT I'D THROW IT OUT THERE. Three guesses which holiday I choose to celebrate. ;P A decision not entirely dictated by the fact that in my family we make our own wine, which is delicious, let me tell you. <3

ANYWAY. THIS IS YOUR INVITATION TO SPAM THIS POST WITH PRETTY THINGS, THINGS THAT MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT TODAY, ABOUT YOURSELVES. LET'S CELEBRATE HOW FUCKING AWESOME WE ARE, YES? <33333

I'LL START. PREDICTABLY, WITH MY VALENTINE -- BECAUSE FFFFFFFFFFFF YES, CLINT BABY, I WILL BE YOUR VALENTINE. (DON'T WORRY, PHIL, YOU CAN COME WITH, HO YUS. ;P)

ALLLLL THE PRETTIES )

IN CONCLUSION: ISN'T THIS THIS CUTEST THING YOU HAVE EVER SEEN???



HAPPY 'WE'RE AWESOME' DAY, EVERYONE. <33333
sirona_fics: (clint)
YOU GUYS.



JEREMY RENNER, YOU GET IN MY PANTS RIGHT THE FUCK NOW.

AND NOW I DEMAND ALL THE FICS WHERE THIS DUDE IS CLINT'S LONG-LOST TWIN BROTHER OR SOME SHIT AND CLINT RESCUES HIM AND THEY BLOW SHIT UP TOGETHER.

ALTERNATIVELY, THIS IS BRAINWASHED CLINT AND ALL OF THE AVENGERS (INCLUDING A CERTAIN AGENT) DIVE IN THERE TO RESCUE HIM.


...I've had a pretty bad day other than this, head-space-wise. I think the only thing that kept me sane have been emails from some people. I love you guys so much. <333333 I think I might just go to bed now and sleep it off. Work tomorrow and the day after. Let's hope there will be words coming.
sirona_fics: (Default)
Thank you, everyone, for bearing with me as I faffed about in re: seeing the Avengers trailer (while, of course, at the same time exercising your god-given right to tease the crap out of me, which was much appreciated and made the day go so much faster).

I HAVE NOW SEEN SAID TRAILER. AND I WOULD LIKE TO FLAIL. A LOT.

ALSO I HAVE SPENT THE LAST FIVE MINUTES PAUSING THE VID AT THE 0.31 AND 0.32 POINTS. BECAUSE REASONS. HOW ARE ALL OF THEM SO FUCKING HOT, HOW.

I have the next two days off, and I plan to WRITE ALL THE WORDS, FLAIL LIKE A MAD WOMAN, AND CHAT TO EVERYBODY. CONSIDER THIS POST AN OPEN INVITATION TO TALK TO ME ABOUT SHIT. ANY OF IT. ALL OF IT. ANYTHING THAT YOU BELIEVE WOULD BE RELEVANT TO MY INTEREST REGARDLESS OF FANDOM OR RL ACTIVITY. <333

Also, #I ♥ MY FLIST, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE NOTICED.

ETA: HOLY. MOTHER. OF GOD. )

EXCUSE ME WHILE I STARE. CLINT FUCKING BARTON, WHAT EVEN ARE YOU.
sirona_fics: (hunky army smiling cap)
England are doing miraculously well out on the field today; here's hoping I won't jinx it by posting this. :D Keep Cook and Carry On, indeed. \0/ \0/ COME ON, LADS. Only 240 more to get, oh god. /0\ /0\

...GODDAMN IT. There goes Trott. Ugh, following Test Cricket while at work. Nothing like it. D:

In other news, the same... Interested parties as last time linked me to this this morning. My squee could probably be heard by the bats hiding in nearby atticks. I LOVE THIS FANDOM SFM. <333333333 You guys are all making me so happy right now I can hardly contain it. I keep posting all this pretty, but the truth is that I have a BADASS team of support peeps who keep spamming be with amazeballs shit that I then share with you. #I ♥ MY FLIST.

Anyway. I hope you all have a wonderful and not at all stressful Monday! <3 A shout-out to my main woman [livejournal.com profile] delicatale, who starts her new job today -- fingers crossed, bb! <3

CLINT SAYS GOOD MORNING.

sirona_fics: (clint/phil)
Spent today following the cricket (oh, god, we are going to get slaughtered tomorrow), chatting with people over email, and making icons. Because apparently my brain needed a break. So here, for your enjoyment, a bunch of Avenger ships. BECAUSE REASONS. Admittedly mostly inspired by [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub's College 'Verse. Uh. And Bucky MF Barnes' face. They're not particularly swanky, but hey, they kept me busy! :D

The usual rules apply: snag whatever you like, please don't hotlink, etc, etc. The bases I've used aren't mine; I snagged them off some marvellous person ages ago and by now I've completely blanked on whose they are. If you recognise them, let me know and I'll credit you! <3

Shiny things this-a-way! )
sirona_fics: (clint/phil)
So I was trawling through teh internets looking for inspiration to spam [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub with, because she's feeling under the weather, poor lamb, and she's writing a Clint/Phil offshoot to her College AU fic AND I NEED THAT YESTERDAY, and what should I stumble upon but THIS??

I laughed so hard my mother wanted to know what the hell was so funny, and baby Nicky tried to clamber all over me to see.

I AM JUST. THEY ARE TRYING TO KILL ME. THEY ARE.

What Did We Learn From The Avengers Q&A? *Cough* Spidey? *Cough*

I LITERALLY CANNOT ANYMORE. #I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR
sirona_fics: (clint/phil)
Okay so I knew in a vague sense that there was a film by the name of Nick Fury in the works, to come out in 2014. Yes, I mean that Nick Fury. And then tonight [livejournal.com profile] littlepunkryo mentioned it, and I went looking for a link on IMDb to share, and, uh, I found it. CHECK OUT THE STORYLINE, I IMPLORE YOU. AND THEN CHECK OUT THE ACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PROJECT (even if it's still only rumoured).

I have this question for you: COULD THIS POSSIBLY BE AS AWESOME AS IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S GOING TO BE??? Could we actually be getting "a group of elite soldiers who carry out elite missions", with Phil Coulson as a member of that team? Could we be getting recruitment backstory for him, as well as certain other agents by the codenames of Black Widow and Hawkeye?

I AM CLOSE TO HYPERVENTILLATING FROM EXCITEMENT, NGL. *__________________* Whom do I need to fuck/bribe/marry to make this happen, tell me and I'll do it. I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE.
sirona_fics: (hunky army smiling cap)
I have spent the morning writing filthy, filthy Clint/Phil dirty talk porn for/with [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub (who encourages me in all the worst ways). So that was an eeeexcellent distraction, I AM JUST SAYING. >XDDDD And it appeased the strangely perky mood I woke up in rather nicely. ;P

And then I found THE SEXIEST COFFEE MACHINE EVER to feature in the piano-bar-singer!Clint/baker-coffee-shop-owner!Phil AU that I am writing. GUYS, I WANT IT. IT'S HUGE AND METAL AND CHROME AND A FUCKING MONSTER AND I WANT IT SO FUCKING BAD. *_______________*

...But now I am BORED. I have two hours to go until the end of my shift (before two glorious days off tomorrow, and until [livejournal.com profile] delicatale posts That Thing she's planning on posting (ETA: SHE HAS POSTED IT sfdhljkghsdgh YAY!!! THE CHRIS EVANS SILLY FACE'S FEST. LET US POST ALL HIS SILLY PUPPY FACES. <333333), I need a distraction that isn't WRITING ALL THE DIRTY TALK PORN IN THE WORLD, GOD. So.


THE "TURN-ON"/"TURN-OFF" MEME


Ask me things and I'll tell you if they're a turn-on or a turn-off for me, possibly probably with visual aids, a.k.a. PICSPAM.

I'll start. This photoshoot or Fem!Sherlock is possibly one of THE HOTTEST THINGS I HAVE EVER SEEN, FUCK ME SIDEWAYS. O_____________O

All right. Door's open -- come on in, pull up a chair, pick your poison, settle the hell down for the evening/afternoon/the time of day you fancy. <333
sirona_fics: (throw him in the shark tank)
I am having A BAD DAY. A fucked-up, BAD day. The kind of day that you need a list of things that keep you going. >X/ Here's mine.

1. THIS THREAD. Literally the only thing that has kept me going, up until a few minutes ago. *sobs on [personal profile] somehowunbroken's shoulder*

2. David Gilmour, a.k.a. That Guy from Pink Floyd, and his album, On An Island. If you have ever liked Pink Floyd's slower, chilled, guitar-led music (a la Wish You Were Here and Comfortably Numb), I cannot recommed this album enough.

3. A nice hot cup of tea. FINALLY. IT'S ONLY TAKEN ME 10 HOURS TO GET ONE.

4. Decent, cheerful patients. Very, very rare breed of animal, but, just, thanks, guys. You probably have no idea how much a smile and a 'thank you' and a kind, understanding tone of voice means to this harried, up-to-her-neck-in-paperwork admin.

5. You guys, for all the wonderfully distracting emails. <33333

5. JEREMY RENNER'S FACE. Okay, let's face it, it was going to be up there. Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] laria_gwyn, for reminding me of the hitherto untapped healing powers of THAT FACE.

I MEAN, REALLY )

SPAM ME WITH PRETTY PICS, PEEPS. PLEASE. ANYTHING. A PRETTY FLOWER. A NICE SUNRISE. THE OCEAN. CHRIS EVANS. THE CURVE OF A SHOULDER. THE LINE OF A BEAUTIFUL NECK. BENEDICT MF CUMBERBATCH. THAT WOULD BE THE MOST AMAZEBALLS THING. :'))))))))))))))
sirona_fics: (plot? what plot?)
...Fuck it, I'm downloading Grimm, even though I need another TV show like I need a bullet in my brainpan. I have been convinced. Spent an hour last night waxing lyrical to a family friend (with whome we share quite a bunch of TV shows, he's such a fanboy despite being my parents' age :D) about Sherlock and how bleedin' incredible all the acting and Martin Freeman and everyone and Molly and JOHN and BC and Lestrade and Mycroft and JOHN were, and as a result he's plenty excited to watch it now! :D

THE BAMFEST BAMF WHO EVER BAMFED )

WATSON, MARRY ME. ♥___________♥

I also have White Collar 3x11 on my laptop, and I'm prepared for ALLLL THE OT3 FEELS again. <33333 Show, I have missed you so.

Was rudely awakened at half nine this morning by my nephew, whom I then had to coax to sleep again. If you've never had to convince a cranky nine-month-old that yes, he really does want to go to sleep, you have no idea of the tricks I had to employ. I cycled through the widest diversity of bands until I hit on The Beatles' Here Comes the Sun and he finally relented. Upon which I fetched Rivers of London (which continues to be in every way delightful, I am totally ordering part two as we speak), and spent a happy forty-five mins lazing in bed next to him.

Then he woke up, and I could make myself the best cup of coffee in the entire world. A couple days ago my beloved [livejournal.com profile] zolac_no_miko's Christmas present arrived -- she had sent me (amongst other things) a pack of Ka'u coffee beans. IT IS THE MOST AMAZING THING I HAVE EVER TASTED. Darling, I'm sold, hook, line and sinker. <3333333333 jhgfhjfhslkfjghfdk you guys, you have no idea how delicious that thing is. It tastes of sunshine and living things and lush green valleys. I am going to smack anyone who wants to steal some of my stash so hard. Even baby Nicky approved; he wouldn't let go of the pack, and was totally going after my mug before I whisked it away. :DD

Anyway. Feeling much better today. Certainly a vast amount less fragile, despite the early wake-up call. Also, words happened last night!! \0/ \0/ For which I totally blame my enablers. XD The singer!Clint story has a complete first scene now, at 2,500 words! :D And [livejournal.com profile] laria_gwyn has been invaluable, with her smart, delicious ideas, and badass googlefu, and much-needed support, and just plain being wonderful. ...As a result of which I also have just over 1,000 words of a Pepper/Phil thingie? Those of you who listened to me yammer on about them and told me it was THE BEST IDEA AND NOT MAD AT ALL are also to blame. :DDD I'm... pretty pleased with what I wrote, but words were still being conniving bastards, and I think it needs a wee bit of work -- it read a bit clumsy last night. Could just be me beeing a moody bitch, of course. But it shall be up soon! AND THEN [livejournal.com profile] laria_gwyn IS GOING TO WRITE THE NEXT PART AND SO ON AND SO FORTH AND IT IS GOING TO BE DELICIOUS. \0/ \0/ \0/ \0/ \0/ Simple, innocent (for now, because I have plans for the two of them, ho yus) fun writing, OH HOW I'VE MISSED YOU. :') Also it's been I don't even know how long since I've written anything het -- no pairing has really grabbed me, for so long, and this is going to be a wonderfully useful exercise! <3

So yes. Words! White Collar! Rivers of London! Amazeballs space ficlets from [livejournal.com profile] delicatale! The start of an EPIC POST-TRF FIX-IT FIC from [livejournal.com profile] irisbleufic!! Pretty damn good going all round, me thinks. :D And now I'm going to faff about all day, I imagine. I'm not planning anything -- just see where the day takes me. I'm sorely in need of just such a no-pressure-do-whatever day. <3 First day in a while when I've been excited rather than frustrated about writing! I might work on shit! I might watch telly! I might read! DAY-OFF GOODNESS, COME TO ME. <3333
sirona_fics: (never leave me)
Listening to [livejournal.com profile] somehowunbroken's Clint mix, I'm in a New York state of mind, and I want to write that singer!Clint thing I got going so fucking bad I'm aching with it. :((( Happily, today is supposed to be my last shift for a few days (we'll see what happens), so I ought to have the rest of the week off. Once I've slept properly, and not so fucking stressed out I'm practically vibrating, I might be able to get somewhere at last. All the stories I got going are clamouring right now -- that one, X-Pride II, the Love Actually AU. PLEASE, BRAIN, GIVE ME A BREAK ALREADY. :(

Since my brain is torturing me, I'm going to torture you some. Because I'm all about sharing. XP The WIP meme: here's a snippet each from the two fics on my mind right now.

Piano-bar-singer!Clint/all-night-cafe-owner-and-baker!Phil )

Domestic Regency Marriage Fluff, a.k.a. X-Pride II )

Aaaanyway. Now that we have all (mostly) recovered from TRF, and undoubtedly want ALLLLL THE SHERLOCK/JOHN REUNION FICS, might I recommend one for your attention?

Stand alone among the wreck by [livejournal.com profile] giddygeek
--The carnival ends, eventually.

Ugh, this fic took my heart and ripped it apart and remade it all the better. Highly recommended.

Also, on a related note, in case some of you still haven't read the masterpiece that is this fic, I heartily encourage you to hightail it over there immediately--

Jack-in-the-Box by esteefee
--After Holmes returns there are recriminations. And then changes, subtle and insidious. There may even be a plot afoot. If only Holmes were more of a detective. Richie!Holmes universe.

One of the most astoundingly scorching things I have ever read, that somehow manages to also be one of the sweetest, kindest fics out there, too. Forever adored. <33333

This... was supposed to be a Day Fifteen of the Snowflake Challenge entry. Oh, well. Distraction is the name of the game today. I'm weary enough to have made myself a playlist named 'tired' full of achy, melantcholic songs, because that's the kind of mood I'm in. :( In fact, this matches my mood exactly (on the Clint mix I mentioned at the start).

Meh

sirona_fics: (Default)
Still feeling rather weary of spirit. Ugh, stupid hormones. :((( Doesn't help that half of what was supposed to be my day off was spent wrangling deliveries and filling in documents and mostly not resting at all. DX

On the plus side, bought myself a cute wee 4GB mp3 player, and have stuffed it full of fanmixes and podficks and the like! \0/ \0/ Now I can carry fandom's awesomeness everywhere with me!! <3333 Rather pleased with that purchase! :) It's been ages since I've had an mp3 player -- mostly used my phone for music and stuff, but it's crammed full of crap right now and I just don't have the energy to tackle it. This was really the perfect solution! :D And it's so easy to use! I'm impressed! :D

Words are still being an utter bitch and extremely uncooperative. Thank god for [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub and the snippets she keeps sending me from her bb!Steve/bb!Tony verse, which, my endorphine levels spike every time I see a new email in my inbox. <333 Teenage bb boys in loooooove!! ♥________♥ She knows me so well. :')

Right, okay, time for tea and a blanket and watching something disgustingly fluffy. Yes. <3 Saw (finally) Jane Eyre the other day, and UGH, FASSY, MUST YOU BE SO FUCKING AWESOME IN EVERYTHING WHEN I HAVE TO WAIT FOR YOUR OTHER NEW STUFF TO COME OUT. :((( Failing that, a few episodes of White Collar S03 ought to do the trick. It's back on tonight!! \0/ \0/ Can hardly wait.

Oh, what the hell. Let's have a meme as well.

The Poetry Meme

If you see this in someone's journal, post one as well.
Saw a gorgeous poem in [livejournal.com profile] somehowunbroken's journal the other day, and thought, hey, neat. So here is a poem that, despite not necessarily having anything to do with who I am, still had a profound effect on me the first time I read it.

How to make love to a trans person )

All right, I am going to use all this AWAKE I have found myself with after eleven hours of sleep last night to get caught up on this.

Day 10

In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


My flist is awesome )

Day 11

In your own space, ask for recs. Something as simple as "I like XYZ (where XYZ is a kink, a pairing, a trope, etc) - please rec me some." Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I want candy )

Day 12

In your own space, rec at least three fanworks that you think would make a good intro into XYZ fandom. Rec a fandom overview, a introductory picspam, stories that define and shape the fandom. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Oooooh shiny! )
sirona_fics: (throw him in the shark tank)
Exhausted. Have just spent twelve and a half hours working my arse off without a single break (no lunch break; not even a tea break). The only thing that kept me sane was basically [livejournal.com profile] delicatale, who last night incepted me with a plot bunny and, uh. Well, basically we have ~9,000 words of a Clint/Phil, Steve/Bucky Paranormal Romance AU. YES, WE'RE MAD. XD Now that we've got that out of the way, it, seriously, it saved my sanity today. I am ready to drop. It is made of sunshine and rainbows and fairies (*snort* you'll get it when you read it, I promise) and boys in looooove. <3333 Because I happen to have a slightly unsavoury history of obsession with the genre, and I have dragged [livejournal.com profile] delicatale kicking and screaming with me. SHE SHOULD KNOW BETTER THAN TO SAY THESE THINGS TO ME. XD

So behind on the Snowflake Challenge. I'm gonna do a big joint post tomorrow, I think. I've just been too drained to can.

This helped, though:

I promise I'll stop some time soon, but these two posts, I just had to share them. Stunningly insightful, I just, I AM ALL AFLUTTER AT THE BEAUTY AND GENIUS OF THEM. WOW. So this is what it must be like to be so sharp you could cut yourself. The second one in particular... I would very much like to curl up at this person's feet and listen to hir talk all night long. I think I am a little bit in love.

"We're not a couple." "Yes, you are." -- A meta on Sherlock and John's relationship that is the closest thing to canon I have yet to read.

JEREMY RENNER + CARS. THIS CAN'T REALLY GET ANY BETTER.

Also there is this SPECTACULAR piece of art by Odora over at dA:


A-team
by *Odora on deviantART

I. CANNOT. STOP. STARING. THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING. *_____________* Can I just say, CLINT'S POSE. *fluttering hearts EVERYWHERE*

And speaking of things I can't stop staring at -- [livejournal.com profile] zoronoa DREW PHIL AND CLINT FOR [livejournal.com profile] delicatale AND I. I AM ALL FLAILY AND TWITTERPATTERED WITH GLEE, BECAUSE JUST LOOK AT THEMMMMM. AJKHFJLFKGHLJFDG PHIIIIIIILLLLLL WITH THE TINY CRINKLES AROUND HIS EYES AND THE LINES AROUND HIS MOUTH AND JFHFJDDJHDG MAN OF MY HEART. ♥♥♥ THEY ARE SUCH BOYFRIENDSSSSSS. <3 You should all go stare at it and give [livejournal.com profile] zoronoa alllll the love!

For all those who get starry-eyed and wet-pantied (it's a word if I say it is, damn it) at the thought/sight of Tom Hiddleston, THIS WILL BE EXTREMELY RELEVANT TO YOUR INTERESTS. Hell, I don't find him all that attractive and even I'm all HHHHHNNNNNGGGGG over it. FOREHEAD WRINKLES + STUBBLE + TOOTHPICK + LEATHER JACKET. MMMMMMMMMMMMM.

In other news, slept extremely poorly last night, and today I am all djhfdjshldfhg WHAT IS BRAIN at work. Happily, it appears that I'll be finishing earlier than anticipated. \0/ \0/ Let's see if words want to make sense for me in the meantime! :D They appear to be working so far..... ROLL ON CHARLES WITH PUPPY.

....If I can bloody stop thinking about this idea [livejournal.com profile] delicatale and I discussed that I write for her, for the auction piece I owe her, where Phil owns and works the night shifts at an all-night cafe, and also BAKES ALLLL THE THINGS. And Clint is a piano bar singer who comes in to unwind two or three nights a week, in the small hours, when there's hardly anyone in but him and Phil and some die-hard insomniac writers, and they get to talking, and Phil bakes for him and talks him down and is basically the Phil Coulson we all know and love, and Clint is cranky and snarky and exhausted yet too wired to go to sleep, and they end up chatting about ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING AND FALL IN LOOOOOOOVE. /sap SO YES. THERE IS THAT. ER. >.> I HAVE TO SAY ALL THIS PRETTY ISN'T HELPING ME STOP THINKING ABOUT THIS PIECE OF SILLINESS.

Lastly: a lovely, lovely song to send the year off in style! :) Thank you, [personal profile] sheafrotherdon, for linking it! :) In conclusion: DIMPLESSSS. <3

fdkjfghfljkghfldhg I have spent THE ENTIRE DAY up to my elbows in flour and butter and chocolate and batter. I have made five batches of muffins and an enormous cake (sponge now in the oven). I am shattered. My back hurts, my feet are killing me, and I am generally a fucking wreck from allllll the baking + babysitting baby Nicky. UGH. I'm gonna take a couple aspirins before bed or I might not be able to get up tomorrow. DDDD:

Meanwhile, this thing sounds spectacular:



It's right up my street, and [livejournal.com profile] delicatale is right -- it speaks my language. I'm all for us loving ourselves, and celebrating just how fucking awesome we all are. I would be more enthusiastic in my endorsement if I had the slightest bit of energy left in me. Rest assured I'm giving this THE HUGEST THUMBS UP, and I will definitely be participating.

An aside note on transforming my work -- the short statement here is that I WOULD BE BEYOND HONOURED. I am an enormous fan of podfics, and I can only dream that someone would find my things worthy of recording. Likewise art -- seriously, if anyone wants to do anything for them, I would mostly be floored that anyone thinks them worthy of prettying up. So there is that.
