[Started up the clocks] by [livejournal.com profile] delicatale
--Sometimes relationships have to grow through friendship, pushing and pulling, pain, denial and regrets. Canon, set before-to-after Thor.

Honestly one of the best things I have ever read, not just in this fandom. The subtlety is breathtaking; the emotions shine so clearly. This is, in my humble opinion, quite possibly the best thing [livejournal.com profile] delicatale has ever written, and that says a lot. Truly profound, at least it was to me. Made me cry, I don't mind admitting it. *sniffle* Also made my heart grow about ten sizes, and made me feel like someone wrapped their arms around me and held me close. Beautiful work.

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/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: (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:



Via [livejournal.com profile] delicatale, via exampleofinconsistency


BECAUSE, I MEAN. I'M KNACKERED, NOT DEAD. *___________________*

Also, this made me laugh so hard that my dad asked me what on earth I was reading.

Yeah. XDDD

Also, there is this:



HOW AM I EVEN GOING TO COPE. T___________T

All right. Day off tomorrow. Possibly more Clint/Phil and Steve/Bucky and ~FEEEEEEELINGS. <3
sirona_fics: (clint/phil)
This is my own haul from Day Nine -- a glorious, beautiful picture of Raven from this story! ashfjkldghdfjkgh I CANNOT CONTAIN MY GLEE AND HEARTSEYES. It is PERFECTION.

Now to pay it forward.

Day 9

In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


So a while back, there was that meme going around, where you pick a character and I tell you three pieces of my personal head canon. And when [livejournal.com profile] futureperfect did it, I asked for Phil Coulson (for, well, REASONS. >.>;;) This is part of what she said:

2. If Coulson had any kind of spare time (which he doesn't, but if he did) he's probably have a hobby that involves being nowhere near juiced up super heroes and very very very very very much by himself. Like fishing. Or cross-stitch. Or scale models.

(4. He's a stress smoker. He's trying to give up. It's not easy because his life = stress.)


Upon which I pounced immediately, because, I MEAN. *___________*

To cut a long story short, she's been having a rough couple of days, and in her Day Seven of the meme, she asked for some fanfic. I... guess this might not be what you had in mind, darling, but I hope you enjoy it regardless! <3 BECAUSE, WELL, PLOT BUNNIES. >.>;;


Title: Babysitting is a calling, not a 9 to 5
Characters/Pairings: Phil Coulson, ensemble Avengers, Clint/Phil (implied)
Rating: PG-13 for language/themes
Length: ~1,500
Summary: In which Phil takes a well-deserved vacation to a far-away, peaceful retreat, and he's fine, damn it.


He has books, he has his cross-stitch project to keep himself occupied, and there are no phones or computers or wi-fi anywhere in the vicinity. See? He's going to be just fine. )

This is a personal post, basically, so, uh, you know. To whom it may concern? By which I mean, skip and read and reply as it takes your fancy! :)


Day 5

In your own space, share something non-fannish you are passionate about with your fannish friends. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


And not long ago this phenomenal cat produced seven kittens right out of a hat! )


Day 7

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Drop a link to your wish-list in this post. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.


You have seen it one moment, and then it is gone! But you find it next week lying out on the lawn! )


Day 8

In your own space, talk about a talent (or talents) you have. Everyone's got something they're good at. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Was there ever a cat so clever as magical Mr. Mistoffelees! )

All right, enough about me. If you made it all the way through, I salute you. <3We now return you to our regularly scheduled squee fest. \0/
sirona_fics: (charles/erik)
So this morning I was reading the BBC News site, and I came across the article about Aretha Franklin becoming engaged, which, congratulations, you marvel. <3 But that isn't the interesting part.

No, the interesting part is the blurb to the news, to wit: Aretha Franklin announces that she has become engaged to her old friend William "Willie" Wilkerson, at the age of 69, and plans a summer wedding. [Bolded text my own]

YOU CAN GUESS WHERE MY MIND WENT, CAN'T YOU. I MEAN. Obviously this is now pop culture euphemism. AND I CAN'T HELP BUT HEAR THIS PHRASE IN SIR IAN'S VOICE. :D :D :D

In other news, this morning is the first time the new comment system has worked for me. Which, I'm pretty damn relieved not to have to type in style=mine every time I want to leave a comment, it was starting to drag.

ALSO THIS MORNING I SWITCHED ON MY PC TO BOTH BUCKY MF BARNES AND JEREMY RENNER SPAM FROM [livejournal.com profile] somehowunbroken and [livejournal.com profile] futureperfect. IS THERE A BETTER WAY TO START YOUR MORNING, I ASK YOU. <3 #ilovemyflist Considering I actually woke up to godawful stomach cramps, THIS IS A VAST IMPROVEMENT. THEIR FAAAAACEEEEESSSSS.
sirona_fics: (clint/phil)
Having spammed [livejournal.com profile] delicatale with these in a series of increasingly flailtastic emails, I THINK EVERYONE OUGHT TO FEAST THEIR EYES UPON THEM. Let's end the year with a bang.

First up: JEREMY RENNER. BECAUSE THERE SHOULD ALWAYS BE MORE JEREMY RENNER.



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.
sirona_fics: (charles/erik jazz hands)
All right, first time cross-posting! :D Which I will be doing from now on, because UGH, otherwise I have to re-post all my entries here, which, PAIN IN THE ARSE OR WHAT.

Right, okay. Look, indulge me. Please. I have been thinking about COULSON BAKING since yesterday (all day), and now I would like ALLLLL THE BAKING/BAKERY/COOKING AUS EVER, PLEASE AND THANK YOU. Rec me stuff. Things you've loved reading, I don't particularly care in which fandom, I WILL READ THEM ALLLLL.

Writing has been mostly /fail these few days -- only 10K or so overall on X-Pride II, which for me is a bit lame. STILL, PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE. \0/ \0/ Pretty much half-way done now, with the plot sorted out for the rest of it, which is almost half the work done! :D :D Charles is about to find a puppy on his way home, when he gets caught in a rainstorm. :D :D ALLLLL THE FLUFFFFF. <3

But otherwise, the cop!Erik AU is almost completely finished!! \0/ \0/ It's now been passed to my gamma readers, who will tell me if it is actually readable as it is. <3 THANKS, YOU GUYS. Sooooo there ought to be a 43K Charles/Erik adventure romp posted in the next couple of days! \0/ \0/ \0/

Speaking of, MY [profile] secret_mutant GIFT IS UP!!! AND IT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL, GLORIOUS THING EVER. afdjhjlfkhldfhdfh LOOK AT IT. JUST LOOK. AJAHLJHGLJFHLDFHGDFH ALLLLLLLL THE FLUFFY ~FEEEEEEEELINGS!! ♥__________♥ sfjghfdjgh I CANNOT EVEN. I AM SO BLESSED. :')

And now a meme! :D (I foresee a few of these in the coming days, what with end-of-year and all.) Stolen from [personal profile] amcw177.

Give me a character or a pairing (or both) and I will tell you three tidbits of my personal headcanon for them.

GO ONNNN, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO LET ME RAMBLE AT YOU TILL THE COWS COME HOME. <3<3<3
sirona_fics: (hunky army smiling cap)
Okay so totally spamming you again, BUT. I have just read this story, and it is just. It has made me so, so happy. I mean, I could post my entire comment to the author, which is basically HEARTS IN EYES LIKE WHOA, and waxing lyrical about content and style and visuality, but I think you ought to just read it yourselves.

Cold Making Warmth by Anonymouse.
Steve settles upon the few things he knows for sure: that the days are short, and it's cold, and he doesn't mind looking dumb for making the effort. So screw the protocol, whether it exists or not – he's giving gifts.

BEAUTIFUL. SO. BEAUTIFUL.

Not to mention that this story has given me THE MOST RABID PLOT BUNNY. [SPOILER] for the Coulson arc in the fic )

Okay, so notice how I COMPLETELY FAILED to leave my [profile] dream_holiday gift until tomorrow? YEAH.

Thanks for the Wings by [personal profile] foxxcub.
This was going to be his last Christmas with his best friend, and Arthur could hardly stand it.

BASICALLY THIS IS THE STORY OF MY HEART. I can't even tell you how many times I teared up to this, and then grinned like an idiot; it made my chest ache, and my eyes leak, and my heart grow approximately fifteen sizes. IT IS THE BEST THING, AND IT IS ALLLLLL MIIIIIINE. *________* MY HEART, I CANNOT EVEN. I can't remember the last time it's had this much exercise. <3<3<3
sirona_fics: (charles/erik)
If I have to stare at the computer screen for even five more minutes, I might throw up, that's how hungry/tired I am. I actually not here at all; no, I'm signing off my shift and going home to watch baby Nicky rip apart his first Christmas present that I specifically gift-wrapped so he could have something to tear~! :D :D

In other news, I wrote 7K of Regency Domestic Marriage Fluff (a.k.a. X-Pride II) today, and I am all set to write the scene that rolls the fic over to half-way done tomorrow. HUGE scene. HUGE. Like, it'll probably end up being at least 4K just by itself, I should think. As of now I'm about 300 words off 30K, which, JESUS. Just under half-way done. Breathe, Neve.

Also also my [profile] dream_holiday fic got posted today, AND I JUST ABOUT PASSED OUT FROM EXCITEMENT. YOU GUYS, MY AUTHOR IS [personal profile] foxxcub. I MEAN. ♥________♥ I SWEAR, I DON'T KNOW HOW I'LL GET THROUGH TONIGHT WITHOUT SAYING BAGS TO THE LOT OF THEM AND HOLING UP WITH MY LAPTOP TO READ IT ASJHFAKHFDKJLGHSLDGH *____________*

Lastly, Happy Holidays, everyone, however you celebrate! I LOVE YOU ALL, SO MUCH. I leave you with this, because it just gave me the biggest smile, and I hope it makes you smile, too. ♥ (Ganked off [personal profile] nikibee)

sirona_fics: (tony stark is a cool bastard)
I have literally woken up about an hour and a half ago. Back on antibiotics, and my body hates me. Regular sleeping schedule, I miss you so... :(((

Yesterday I got really fucking aggravated by a comment I read in the journal of one of my flisters, with regards to the recent LJ changes. Feel free to skip, it's just me blowing off steam, I suspect. )

Anyway. Onto more better things. I am about to spam you with links to fun things! :D Like I spammed [livejournal.com profile] zolac_no_miko last night at 3am... WHAT CAN I SAY, WHEN I DON'T SLEEP, I DON'T SLEEP LIKE A BOSS. I hadn't been on my favourite site (because yes, I am a geek, and guess what -- so are these people, proudly so, and they do everything they can to spread the joy! HOW NOT TO LOVE THEM FOR IT) for far too long, and last night when I was posting JEREMY RENNER AND GEMMA ARTERTON IN LEATHER, I went to take a look. AND OH MY GODDDDD ALLLLL THE SHINY!! *________* And because I love you all, I thought I'd share! AREN'T YOU HAPPY YOU'RE ON MY FLIST? :D :D

Let's start with something I know a lot of you are well excited about: The Hobbit Trailer Breakdown and The Batman Trailer Breakdown. These all go into awesome details, sort of paring out clues from what we're being shown, and they make for some pretty fab reading! :)

Then there are these Movie Recipes, including Francis Ford Coppola's spaghetti sauce from The Godfather that I'm making for my dad, because he's such a huge fan, Julia Child's Boeuf Bourginon, and a recipe for beignets that I am itching to try out.

Then there is Robert Downey Jr: A Viewer's Guide that is all kinds of shiny, and I need to re-watch half the films on it. And with that, we move into Avengers territory! IS ANYONE SURPRISED, I ASK YOU. Okay, this feature BLEW. MY. MIND. Because you're talking to a seriously die-hard Whedon fan, HE IS MY ABSOLUTE HERO, and look, this is why I love Empire so much. Because they get me. Us. They get their fans. They know we're all geeks and nerds to a certain degree, and they know about Joss Whedon, they get what he is. And so they have given us this: How do The Avengers fit into the Whedonverse?, which is THE BEST THING EVER, and drew from me all kinds of embarrassing squeaky noises of delight (not a huge surprise, as it's written by Helen O'Hara, whom I adore -- she is this incredibly awesome film journalist who also has a Law degree and appears to have the same taste in movies and TV shows as me, and just, she is my internet girlfriend. *_______*). WAIT TILL YOU GET TO THOR. In fact, they are all awesomesauce in one way or another. <3<3<3

And last, to cap off this edition of The Shiny, have some eye candy. I am sad that there is no Phil BAMF Coulson, or Pepper shots, but oh well, I'll take what I can get.





But for me, the real winner of the piece is Helen's (yep, her again <3 Just one more reason I am helplessly infatuated with her) poll that goes with the banners, which I shall recreate here for the benefit of humanity (the Fury thing made me snort tea, trufax. As did the Thor thing :D):

[Poll #1805098]

And now to finish my [livejournal.com profile] secret_mutant story and the last read-over of cop!Erik AU. I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M GETTING SO CLOSE TO POSTING IT. It hardly seems real. :')

OKAY OKAY YOU GUYS, JUST. You can blame/thank [livejournal.com profile] delicatale for those, because she was the one to shove them in my eyeballs, AND NOW I CANNOT LOOK AWAY. BECAUSE. JUST. Okay, look, y'all know what happens when I lay my eyes on a sharp-dressed BAMF, don't you? YEAH. SO. I thought these ought to be shared with the world. YOU'RE WELCOME.



ONE MORE )

...AND NOW WE SHOULD ALL WRITE COMMENT-SUIT!PORN FIC HERE. AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, PREFERABLY ALSO STARRING PHIL MF COULSON. BECAUSE. LOOK AT HIM. I WANT TO PEEL HIM NAKED AND PUT MY MOUTH ALL OVER THAT.

I've just read this beyond-adorable news story, and I agree with [livejournal.com profile] kitsune_tsuki -- this is the perfect set-up for a romantic comedy. And now I desperately want someone to write this, in whichever fandom inspires. :D

God, I'm so tired, even though all I've done today has been edits. Goddamn you, cold. D: On the plus side, both the Sherlockmas and the [livejournal.com profile] dream_holiday assignments are done and ready to go! \0/ \0/ On the not-so-plus side, it is taking me ages to get through reading over the Coffee Shop AU so we can pass it over to our wonderfully obliging beta, because I keep getting distracted by Steve/Bucky kitty fic, which, BEST EVER DISTRACTION. BEST. EVER. And also listening to this song, which is making me want to write PINING BOYS IN LOVE, and more specifically the Steve/Peggy/Bucky strand of the Love, Actually AU, because MY GOD, THE FEELS. <3




SO. WONDERFUL. :')

And also there is Avengers Christmas fic that I am itching to read, and then I got sidetracked while picking out a title for my Sherlockmas fic from a bunch of quotes on writing that are making me all warm inside with love for my craft, and.

What I'm saying is, I just want to lie back on the sofa and read/watch soppy love stories for the rest of the night. *sigh* If you have any of those in mind, do please throw them my way. <3

Okay right so this manic cheerfulness thing? SHOWS NO SIGNS OF ABATING, which, I have no idea what is going on BUT I LIKE IT. <3 And intend to make full use of it before the inevitable crash that is bound to occur due to my imminent Time Of Power (thank you, [livejournal.com profile] zolac_no_miko, for infecting me with that saying, I WILL NEVER AGAIN BE ABLE TO REFER TO IT AS ANYTHING ELSE).

Anyway. I would like to make it known that MY FLIST IS FULL OF TERRIBLE ENABLERS. (I'm eyeballing you, [livejournal.com profile] somehowunbroken.) Because this morning, I got to work to find an email from [livejournal.com profile] somehowunbroken linking me to THIS PICTURE (linked, because it is ginormous and if I embed it it would screw up everyone's layouts, BUT YOU SHOULD TOTALLY CLICK ON IT AND GAZE ON THE MINDBOGGLING AMAZINGNESS THAT IS BUCKY BARNES). And then I (very understandably, I thought) had ALLLLL THE FEEEEELINGS GUSHING OUT EVERYWHERE. Which, extremely appropriate icon, me thinks. And then this happened, alongside an exclusively-CAPSLOCK-infested conversation with [livejournal.com profile] somehowunbroken over IM (see cut below) about ALLLLLL OF OUR STEVE/BUCKY FEELS, directly precluding the events detailed in the aforementioned happenstance, AND BASICALLY THE OUTCOME OF THAT IS THAT I AM GOING TO HAVE TO WRITE THAT BUCKY/STEVE/TONY THING OR EXPLODE FROM SUPPRESSED ~FEEEEEEELINGS, OH GOD. /0\ /0\

The Steve-and-Bucky conversation, under a cut because SERIOUSLY, CAPSLOCK, I AM NOT KIDDING. And also length. YEAH. I WASN'T KIDDING ABOUT ALLLL THE FEEEELINGS EITHER. Also obviously for [SPOILERS] for Captain America. )

In other news, there is a Holiday Love Meme thing going on!! Which, MESSAGE ME WITH ALL YOUR LINKS SO I CAN GIVE YOU SOME LOVE!! :D

More new people! WELCOME. I hope you know what you're getting yourselves in for. >.>;; Intro posts have been going on this week, so feel free to check out my recent entries if you feel like moar insanity.

Anyway, last night I was reading this magazine my mum brought home with her, and there was an article on People's Sexiest Man Alive 2011 list! GUYS, IDRIS ELBA IS ON IT, HOW MUCH DO I LOVE THAT MAN. <3 And Chris Hemsworth's younger brother! AND CHRIS EVANS IS #5!! That is a nice fucking photo of him right there! :D It's a bit of a travesty that Sebastian Stan isn't on it -- next year, maybe?

So that was fun. And then I turn a few pages, AND I SEE THIS.




And while looking for that pic, I ALSO FOUND THIS.




YOU ARE WELCOME. WATCH IT WITH SOMETHING TO COOL YOURSELF WITH AFTERWARDS NEAR AT HAND. ALSO I (AND MY KEYBOARD) HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DON'T DRINK ANYTHING WHILE YOU WATCH IT. YEAH.

There is also this vid, in which he is UTTERLY ADORKABLE, and also scorching hot with the making out and shit, NNNNNNNGGGHHHH. Also he sounds so smart; I love the bit where he talks about sense memory. HE'S A HUGE FAN OF ICE CREAM. HE LOVES WEARING COLOGNE. (Okay, sidecut, I have a HUGE thing about men wearing cologne and smelling delicious. The easiest way to seduce me is to smell nice and delicious and lickable/fuckable. (I wonder why the hell I haven't done a fic about this, or used it in a fic yet? SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.) So Chris Evans saying this -- WELL, YOU CAN IMAGINE THE EFFECT ON MY LIBIDO.) BASICALLY THERE'S NOTHING I DON'T LIKE ABOUT THIS VID. <3 Also I would just like to say EVAN RACHEL WOOD'S HEELS. I don't as a rule have a shoe thing, BUT THOSE HEELS ON HER, I JUST. *_______* SO. FUCKING. HOT.

Anyway, my god, distracted is the name of the game today. :/
