I'm sad :(

I really really love the concept of Night Vale. The more I see recced on my tumblr the more intrigued I feel about it. On the other hand, the more I see recced the sadder I feel.

It's a fandom I'll never be able to get into. I checked, there's currently 600 minutes of canon. I can barely sit for a 15 minute podfic. Now, if it was transcribed somewhere, I'd read the fucking shit out of it. But there's no way I can retain that much info spoken out loud. My brain just doesn't work that way.

I think my only answer is to blacklist WTNV on tumblr. That way I don't sigh all emo-like every second post.

When you spend like an hour researching the different kind of top and bottom surgeries available for female to male transgendered people, and their costs, and in which places they'd most likely be able to get them...

And then you read that the success rate of phalloplasties have increased substantially over the last few years, that now patients can actually retain erotic sensation, and it hits you DUUUH, your MC is not getting this surgery NOW, they're doing it when they were in their twenties...

And then you hurry to the fandom wikia, and you realise she was born in 1977, making her need to start hormones in 1993 before she gets the surgery...

And then you go to wikipedia, and realise that transgendered people were only legally allowed to marry starting in 1976, and the chances of there being skilled surgeons for anything in 1995 are probably pretty fucking low, and your entire fic is derailed.

I'd say whatever, it's fine, he'll just have had top surgery to pull off a dapper suit with no complicated/dangerous bottom surgery, except no. I can't. The entire fucking point is that post-prison no one knows, which means they needed to go to a male prison which means they need a goddamn penis in the mid-nineties.

WHY IS THE HISTORY OF PHALLOPLASTY GIVING ME NOTHING? GOOGLE, FOR SHAAAAAAME!

You know what? fuck it. fuck it fuck it fuck it. This is supposed to be a 1k kink bingo fill, spending more time researching it than writing it is fucking sad. I'm just going to write in the AN that the author failed at research and is cognizant of the fuckups, but is handwaving.
gala_apples: (so tired)
So I've added another OTP to my thin, thin list of 'will not ship with others'. But in a rare happenstance, it seems to be the fandom's OTP too. I haven't felt this way since... (I've sat here for literally five minutes going over my fandoms trying to think of a fandom in which the main pairing was my favourite pairing. I've got nothin'.)

White Collar, Neal/Elizabeth/Peter, welcome to the ranks of

X-Men Bobby/John
Skins Sid/Tony
MacDonald Hall Bruno/Boots (okay, this is the main fandom pairing but it barely counts because it's a Yuletide fandom, there are only 50 fics total)

Also I OTP Avengers Tony/Pepper, but I firmly believe that they have an open relationship. So like, allllll the science bros|Avengers sixsome|Tony/Rhodey|Pepper/Natasha|Pepper/Coulson, they just know about each other's exploits and encourage their fun.

Pete/Neal fic with the info tag "Elizabeth's dead" I am side-eyeing you SO HARD, you don't even know. Also author I remember you from HP and you killed off Hermione more than once to get Harry and Ron together. Stop it. This is a bad trend. *more side-eyes*

ETA: I apparently also have a broTP of Neal+Mozzie. This one fic says they stopped being friends and I said "no, you are wrong" out loud then clicked out. <3Nozzie broship<3
gala_apples: (shiny!)
This fic is so good it feels like I'm stoned.

And I don't mean that in the way that would seem obvious; a well written drug scene that makes me flash back. I mean it like...

Okay, so I used to be baked all. The. Time. And usually I'd be doing other things with friends, but I've always been and will always be the one to stay up latest. My natural body rhythm has me sleeping with the sun; I go to bed at 6am and get up at 3pm. It's possible it's a sleeping disorder, but that's not my point. My point is we'd smoke all day evening and night, and then they'd go to bed, and I'd be up for another hour or two, logging into LJ, reading.

And occasionally, while reading stoned, there'd be a fic that would BLOW MY MIND. It was so fucking eloquent and perfect and JFC how was this even possible? Of course, being a stoner, I had these moments with movies and subversive cartoons and tastes and music too. (there's nothing like a Christmas orange while stoned) I'd reread a passage five or six times, not because I was dumb and had a permastoned fried brain, but because I wanted to experience it fully, let every word set in my mind.

The fic I'm reading now is a really well done poly fic, and it's currently having a moment where two of the characters are experiencing cognitive dissonance with each other. (of sorts, I'm sure there's a more accurate word for it but I can't think of it) They've both thought the same way for such a long time only to realise that the other doesn't agree, and they can't bridge that disconnect. But they're trying to talk through it.

And it's such a good scene. It's so fucking spectacular that I feel like I'm that stoned teenager going WHAT SORCERY IS THIS??? at something that will only be half as awesome when I'm sober. Except I'm already sober.

In conclusion: I love reading fics. I haven't felt this sense of wonder in a long time, and it figures that it would be fandom that gives me it.

As always, as I get to the end of my season 2 Stargate Atlantis DVDs I start to scramble for a way to watch season 3 (and 4 and 5). Yesterday I checked:
-Best Buy
-HMV
-Future Shop
-Amazon
-Chapters
-Ebay
for the cheapest price. Unsurprisingly Ebay was the best deal, 25 instead of 36 like everywhere else. And then I checked my Paypal and sighed and closed everything.

Today I watched a few more eps, and got more desperate. The last time this happened I ended up renting all the discs at Blockbuster, but that's not a place anymore. So I said fuck it, I will relook up prices on ebay and strongly consider it.

Ebay crashed.

I tentatively took it as a ~sign~ and looked up DLs. 93 seeds to 385 leechers. FML.

And I know what you're saying. Watch tv online, dummy. But my computer has some sort of selective internet problem, where I can DL like 800kb/s, but it totally refuses to buffer anything. At all. The last time Vince came over it literally took more time to watch the first five minutes of OUAT S2 streaming with all the buffering problems than it did to download the entire season.

Honest to god, I wish it was 5 years ago. I would have just recorded it from the tv onto VHS tapes and then watched it later/now. It would have been glorious.

Okay, so thanks to Coconutice, the best fandom buddy in the world, I got a copy of Ironman 3 about two weeks before the first scheduled release of it.

Now, I don't know how many people I complained about this to, but when it first came out I was kinda broke, and I figured I could see it once at Famous Players, or for the same amount of money, five times at the second run theatre. And I knew it was gonna be the kind of movie I'd want to watch multiple times. So I waited. And waited. And waited. And it was at Famous Players FOREVER, lingering, and then it just stopped. It didn't go to Cinema City. And the level of my pouting was epic. EPIC.

But Coconut_ice found me a DL, and it finished downloading at 3.48. It's 7.04 as I'm typing this. It took me three hours and sixteen minutes to watch a 2.11 movie because I had to keep pausing for feels attacks. The downside is I have to be up for the day at 11, and I'm not exactly tired right now 0.0 But the upside is pausing gave me time to make a reaction doc, which I'm now C&Ping, for those of you who might be interesting in my extensive Ironman feels.

The best thing about reading in new fandoms is that you're free to imagine characters looking like your type, not what they actually look like, because you haven't bothered to Google yet.

Otherwise known as:
-I didn't want to read in any of my normal fandoms, so I decided to go back to SGA and read a crossover
-ended up reading a 140k fic that was SGA/Generation Kill
-am now reading random Generation Kill fics
-side character Ray, you are 1000% Ray Toro in my head, never mind that they probably wouldn't let you keep that beautiful hair of yours.
-side character Ray, I like your snark, and as is normal for me, will probably soon go out seeking fic of you/others, and completely ignore what seems to be the OTP of Brad/Nate. Because why read the thing there's plenty of when you can read the thing there's two or three of?

One of the things my perfect amazing girlfriend got me for my birthday:
 photo DSC03266_zpsf2bb89ec.jpg

A clone!
(no, that is a lie. I don't need a clone, I'm a time travelling robot apple with a blanket cape wearing sideskick. But check out the badass Punisher shirt! This brings my total of Marvel shirts up to three.)
gala_apples: (shuuuuun the nonbeliever)
1) reversebb is at 3.6k. I have 9 days to make 1.4 more k. Suck it, deadline!

2) Doctor Who- your fandom is kind of miserable and shitty. The amount of people complaining today was ridiculous. I'm really glad that this is a fandom where I squee to myself each episode, but move on, except for the very rare read of 11/Rory/Amy triadfic, because reading through tumblr was nothing but squee harshing.
2a) Dude's also Sid's dad in Skins. IE: my favourite character of a British tv show. By the end of this season I will have concocted a great crossover plan.

3) I'm 90% sure I have an ear infection. Monday's a national holiday. Earliest I can see someone without bothering with the emergency room is Tuesday 8am. I'm just gonna take a lot of tylenol to keep the fever I think I have down. And convince myself I shouldn't try to scratch it with a straw or something.

4) a fic I'm writing for kink bingo for a fairly large fandom will be the first tagged with that. Either I'll end up being That Author, or it'll be ignored completely. But whatever, I like being the person who writes shit half the fandom sideeyes.

5) worship is the hardest kink bingo kink there is. Some of the kinks that are considered hard I have no problem with. Like guro was on my card and I wrote one easily, and have about three other guro ideas. For example- necrophilia sounds horrifying until you watch Idle Hands and Seth Green is a sarcastic intelligent teenage zombie, and you're like 'damn, I could totally write you jerking off'. Or furry/plushie. I honest to god have 4 different fics in my head that fit that. I've actually gotten it on every card I've ever signed up for. And I've totally got a vomit-fic in the back of my head if I ever get 'bodily secretions'.

But worship is impossible. It's either body part worship, which I have trouble relating to, since I'm basically a hands off voyeur. Or it's gods and goddesses worship, and I am SO ATHEIST that I barely understand that at all. I can only mentally picture it as a Glory/minions thing, and I can't do a Glory fic since I already wrote Buffy for a different square and I'm getting the 25 fandoms blackout achievement. And I can't think of any other fandom I'm into with gods and goddesses. Unless I speedwatch season 1-7 of SPN to get to the angely bits.

Worship- Y U So Hard?

6) LJ, if you don't let me crosspost this post I will fucking stab you. (And then I will manually post this on you, because I have a fellow Doctor Who lover on LJ)
gala_apples: (help me)
Me in June: yeah, I can totes do this reverse big bang pinch hit, lets handwrite a page or two of brainstorming then tuck it away because it’s not due for forever.

Me in July: oh let’s randomly sign up for Hockey Big Bang (after the deadline is closed, but whatevs, I know the mod) and write that for two weeks before committing to 16 hour days at a theatre festival for the other two weeks.

Me in August: oh, hey, I think after I finish HBB I need to do that other big bang. and also a whole blackout of kink_bingo so i can sign up for a second KB card. and also sign up for that pinn/kinn bb and write one of each. but lets finish hockeybb first. cool beans self? yeah, cool beans.

Me August 2nd. WHAT DO YOU MEAN REVERSEBB IS DUE FINAL EDITED COPY AUGUST 12? WHAT FUCKERY IS THIS?

And on another note, it is impossible to listen to Nicki Minaj's Starships without getting a mental image of that amazing vid.

So, on Friday my cousins all went to Dakota Community Centre, otherwise known as Jonathon Toews Community Centre. They got there kind of early, since my clan is an "on time is late" clan. Also one of my cousins uses a wheelchair, so it was sort of get there first or be behind three rows of standers and see fuck all. There was a large crowd by the time the Toews got there. Apparently they came through a different entrance so no one really saw anyone until the Toews were sitting down. And then Andree spotted Christian (tallest cousin) (no, taller than you're imagining, seriously ridiculously basketball player tall) and she elbowed Bryan and the whole family waved. Just a friendly, neighbourly wave.

The event planner picked up on it and asked my cousins if they wanted to be first in line to hold the cup. They said it was no big deal, since they've still got the pics from 2010, they were really just there to cheer on Jonathon. It wasn't like they'd see him later, he was probably gonna have some big party afterwards. So the guy asked if they'd stand to the side then, so everyone else could get their turns. They started to, because manners.

That's when Jonathon came over and basically thrust the cup at Cam. And when someone tries to pass you the Stanley fucking Cup, you don't not take it. But because he was the first person it was passed to, Associated Press took a picture. And it's pretty much everywhere hockey related right now.

 photo 201307191542565476627_zps50341298.jpg

Which I find hilarious, really, because my other cousins were heckling how deer-in-the-headlights he was looking.

And then Jonathon told Cam to give the cup a kiss. And he did. And there's video of it on Blackhawks.com. It's so inappropriate to want a gifset for tumblr of that, isn't it? (yes, but I don't care because ahahahaha)

So they went home, congratulations said. And then Jonathon called, and asked if they wanted to go to a private party at Tavern United. They said yes, obviously.

Where was I? I was at the Fringe Festival. I've seen 17 plays in 4 days. Sorry fandom, I know I could have asked him something, or done something. Figured out what cologne he wears so you can write more accurate fics. But FRINGE. FESTIVAL. I regret NOTHING.

I've been SO SPOILED by ao3. I went to a short story forum today and side-eyed it because stories were voted on, and yet I couldn't sort them by votes to only read the best ones. What is this, clicking them individually like a chump?

Thank you ao3, for making my internet experience so much easier. I love you, and once I have a job and money I will donate. Because <333

I'm not new to the concept of hate-audience. I've watched things in the past for the sheer and sole purpose of complaining about their shittiness afterwards. Actually, about twenty hours ago Vince forced me to watch Hansel and Gretel 2013 (NOT the Clint one, some random one) because it was so bad. Which, yeah. Human beings don't have that many intestines, and they're not rock hard.

What is new, for me, is being a hater for a book. Normally if it sucks I just put it down and pick up another one of the billion I own, or have rented (I generally check out about 50 at a time at the library). But the Maze Runner trilogy was different. I guess because I'd built it up in my mind. It was always with the dystopian books, which is MY JAM, and when I'd speed read at Chapters changing locations every half hour so they wouldn't kick me out, it was always just low enough on my list to not get to it that time. I always figured it was a cool dark-future version of the Theseus and Ariadne myth.

NO. No it is NOT. It is about stupid people, doing things they know full goddamn well to be stupid, and doing them anyway. And not even in a funny way, like the Jackass films. No, it's shit like being 100% aware that they have memory blocks and not consenting to the machine that unblocks them, despite complaining for the entire book before that life would be so much better if they could ~remember~

By the third book, I was reading it ONLY because I figured a few of the characters would die from their stupidity, and I needed to see it happen. I wanted every single one to die horribly.

FUCK YOU BOOK. FUCK YOU. I'M GONNA READ SOME DIANA WYNNE JONES NOW TO GET THE AFTERTASTE OF YOUR SHIT OUT OF MY BRAIN.
gala_apples: (so tired)
Okay, just finished day four of Children of Earth. Ianto is dead. I am displeased.

(like every other person that's ever watched this show)

I guess at this point my next step is to go read my LJ flist from 2009. Because I distinctly remember some "he didn't have to die, Jack could have done [something]" posts, but I can't remember what they say the something was, and the way I watched it, it looked like they were fucked from the get-go. Maybe if you're a hardcore Torchwood fan you see it differently though? Like how in my mind I have a dozen different ways to end Angel season five and X-Men 3.

Makes me wonder how Miracle Day is going to work, though, if it's only Jack and pregnant!Gwen, who can't do any running for long periods of time. I guess maybe the personal assistant that Gwen convinced to come to Torchwood's side might make three?

But Iannnnto ~flails~ I'm gonna need some awesome sci-fi alternate timeline fix it.

And can I just say, that with a population of like eight billion people, losing ten percent would probably actually be really healthy? Like I realise socially speaking, sacrificing children is evil and everything. But logically? Canada could afford to lose 3 million kids. And our pop density is only 8.3 per square mile. USA's is 88 per square mile. UK's is 661 per square mile. We are all the fuck over each other. Weeding out the herd wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

I should go to bed, but I still have ep five to watch, so I won't. #PoorLifeChoices

I've spent the last...six hours flipping back and forth between different journal_fen wanksites. But mostly fandom_wank. Oh god. I can't stop laughing. I'm like hysterical to the point where I think I need to take a lorazapam before i can go to bed.

we're all so fucking crazy! I love us.

(no but seriously there's like quadruple the number of SPN and Sherlock to other fandoms.)

(although to be fair if this was 2004 it would be like 50% HP drama)

(but seriously SPN, you are semi-terrifying in your intense tinhattiness.)

(also, the one where tumblr!Sherlock got mad because some K-Pop released a cd called Sherlock and all of a sudden there was a war over who had the right to use the tag 'Sherlock', and then a few random people uploaded like 50 billion pictures of penises and tagged them with Sherlock and the war stopped because everyone was just so confused? Fuck, I thought I was gonna piss myself.)
gala_apples: (oh shit)
A miracle has happened!

It took me over ten years, but I finally got my dad to watch X-Men 2 with me. I wouldn't necessarily call it my favourite movie, or the one that means the most to me. But it definitely wins 'watched the most times'. I've seen it over 100 times.

My dad called to me from the living room, asking me if i knew who Hugh Jackman was. (Sarcasm, he knows my fandoms) Obviously I got up to see which movie he was talking about. It was the third scene of x2, not Wolverine going through Alkali Lake, or the president, but the Pyro setting that douche's arm on fire at the museum part. And I sat down to watch until the first commercial, except then somehow we ended up watching the whole thing.

He always said he was not remotely interested. But he TOTALLY WAS. At multiple points he put down his handheld poker game to watch more closely. He turned the volume up a few times, when the conversations were quieter. And he flipped off the military several times ...actually at all the times that I did. Cut from the same cloth, we are.

(also, he gets bonus points for getting all pissed off when Mrs Drake asked Bobby if he'd ever tried not being a mutant. He spent the entire commercial break being sarcastic about how Bobby should just pray the mutant away.)

So yeah, now I'm trolling the Bobby/John lj comm, reading old fic, trying to remember what a few stories I really like are called. Because apparently fandoms are like Hotel California...you can check out anytime, but you can never leave.
gala_apples: (ray's prepared)
Another round of Torchwood thoughts:

Adam- 3/4ths of the ep I was just shouting WHO ARE YOU at the screen, because no, get the fuck out. Although I gotta admit confident!Tosh and nerd!Owen intrigued me. Also serial killer Ianto? As soon as I'm done the series I will be looking for some SK AU. Because daaaamn boy, I can see that working. The implanting in the most important memory thing, that was fucking harsh. >:(

Reset- OH, MARTHA. MY THIRD FAVOURITE COMPANION. ( JSYK 1) Stormageddon's dad, 2) Amy+Rory) NICE TO SEE YOU. ...I bet that jack's sex is bordering on avant-garde is heavily used in the fandom. ...Oh, all the smirky in-jokes, like Jack+Martha working under the same doctor...OMG OWEN. WHAT? WHUT? USE THAT THING, THAT HAND THING FROM THOSE TWO EPS!

Dead Man Walking- awesome, they totally used the hand thing. Good job Jack (you're a hypocrite but I don't care since I like Owen second best to Ianto) Jack waking him up just for the code was douchy. Except I bet you care you're just being all ~manly~ HAHA LOOK AT ALL THAT PUKE *is 7* Oh good Jack you do care about Owen. I feel better now. WAIT IS OWEN MIND CONTROLLING THE WEEVIELS? Cancer kid will defeat all? Black Parade AU? Nope, Owen did it. That's cool too. Yay happy ending! Wait no, preview for the next ep looks pretty non-happy. *sigh*

Six episodes left, and then I have to start COE. Which will only be awful, because while I'm as *meh* to Jack/Ianto as I am to Kurt/Blaine, I really like Ianto as much as I like Kurt. ...Wait, is that a crossover? Because they're both very...I dunno. Ianto could be Kurt's dad or they could be BFFs or they could fuck. They just match in a variety of ways....13 crossovers on ao3, nothing Kurt+Ianto. Will fix this, since I'm sure I'll need a happy AU after COE.

1) Last weekend my mom and I had a two day garage sale with four other houses on my block. This involved a lot of carrying things, a lot of being up at hours that are completely foreign to me, and sitting on a fleece blanket on the concrete because we only have one lawnchair and the 51 year old woman gets it.

On the other hand, I made 42 bucks and my mom made 53. I was stoked because I thought I'd make ten, she was bummed because she thought she'd made hundreds. (I was also stoked because I made The Answer's amount of money. *sci-fi nerd*)

2) I was asked what I was going to buy. My reply: "well, my skullcandy headphones keep cutting in and out, and my vibrator keeps on stopping even though the batteries are new. So whichever one breaks completely first, I guess." Their reply: o.0 I REGRET NOTHING.

3) And then Masterchef started. Which is my cooking show crack. Who cares about Top Chef or Chopped or Iron Chef? Bring me Masterchef! Everything Gordon Ramsey bitches about delights me. Back when we were stoners Vince and I would watch hours of Kitchen Nightmares at a time.

4) I saw my nephew Rylan. He is six months, and babbles up a storm, and doesn't seem to mind when the dog licks his entire face in one swoop. I will forever be the only one in the extended family that knows how to spell his name right. Thank you Cobra Starship. (also wondering how long into junior high it'll take for someone to start singing Pleasure Ryland at him. Because it didn't take long at all to get Stacey's Mom belted at my face)

5) Kay called, asking if I wanted to hang out a bit. Came home two days later. Because that's how unemployed people roll.

6) We watched all of Bates Motel. I wish I could remember which one of my flist got really really mad on twitter about a particular episode and rage-quit. Because they were all 'this went too far', and watching it, well, it's ALL too far? Like it's a pretty nasty show. Nothing really stuck out as worse than anything else? (I did think it was hilarious that me and Kay handled the cesty vibes better than Vince though, because of her anime history and my Harry Potter.)

7) I HAVE FIFTEEN DAYS TO WRITE 20 AVENGERS STORIES BEFORE KINK BINGO AMNESTY IS OVER. SEND HELP. Or some sort of machine that I think at and it transcribes my thoughts. Because I have ideas for almost all of the prompts, I just need to write them.

Wanted to reread an Avengers fic I was too stupid to bookmark. I knew it was about PTSD, so naturally I used the PTSD tag while declaring that I'd read every summary until I found it.

16 pages of that tag later I have *counts* 34 fic tabs open. But I still haven't found my fic. AND I WANT TO READ IT MORE THAN I WANT TO READ ANY OF MY OPEN TABS.

It's gen, about how Clint and Natasha take a while after doing deep undercover to turn back into their normal selves, basically go catatonic. And Coulson's alive, but in the hospital and not available to help them transition, so Tony and Pepper are helping them bathe and dress and stuff, and it's just really really GOOD H/C gen.

Any of you recognise it?
gala_apples: (stupidass decision)
So I went over to Vince's mom's house Friday early evening because me and him and Kay were supposed to hang out for a bit. Kay was over for all of an hour before having a panic attack and needing to leave. I, on the other hand, was there until Sunday 4pm.

This is what happens when you try to make plans with Vince.

His mom doesn't have internet, or cable. What she does have is multiple bookshelves of dvd's. And also recliners in the living room. We...didn't really move from the living room, except to go to bed. (which is a 4 poster canopy thing, and I need to boost myself to get into it, but very soft.)

Friday:
Nightmare on Elm Street
Hotel Transylvania
Men In Black 1-3

Saturday:
Monsters Inc
Pirates of the Caribbean 1-4 (all of which clock in at about 2.5 hours)
Final Destination 4
Underworld

Sunday:
Detroit Rock City

And now I'm reading POTC fic, because honestly, who watched the original trilogy and DIDN'T think that Elizabeth/Will/Jack was the perfect solution?

Another short Torchwood thoughts post. Chock-fulla spoilers.

Read more... )
gala_apples: (panic 3.0 snuggly)
Okay, so. I know a Doctor Who in the near future will have allll the companions, so I was trying to finish my pre-11 watch before that happened. I got down to the last two eps of season four, and the preview had the Torchwood guys, and I realised it was gonna be like when Buffy/Angel were concurrent and referenced each other. I didn't want to get spoilered for TW so I looked it up on wiki, and the last two eps of season 4 fall after the first two seasons of TW. So now I have watch that all before I watch season 4 before I watch 11+Oswin meeting ALLLLL the people.

I think I'm fangirling Torchwood wrong. I'm a few eps in. I like that the eps are darker than DW, much like Angel was darker than Buffy. And I do appreciate that Owen's had a MMF threesome, that Gwen's kissed an alien girl, and I'd have to be blind and deaf to not know that Jack and Ianto eventually become canon OTP.

(Mostly because I was on LJ the night that the last ep of Children of Earth aired, and there were literally 13 posts in a row of rage-quit sobbing weeping hatred anger depression. So I have that to look forward to.)

So yeah, the LGBTQ section is flourishing, which is great. But this OTP does not work for me. At least not yet. I'm up to the fairies ep. IE: last episode Jack made Ianto kill his girlfriend, and said he'd kill them both if Ianto didn't. YOU'RE A PRICK, JACK. FUCK YOU, JACK. Ianto was crying for over half the ep and all I wanted to do was hold him. YOU DON'T DESERVE HIM, JACK.

I think I'm gonna ship Ianto/Owen.

This is like that time I was in [every fandom I've ever been in] and shipped [obscure shit with ten fics total] instead of [OTP with rabid fangirls].

Currently researching the origin of flipping tables. Because my fic has a definite setting date, and I need to know if flipping tables was a thing before then, or after.

The things you do to write realism in fic. The things you research that no reader will ever, ever know about. Sometimes I want to add THIS FIC MADE ME OPEN FIFTEEN DIFFERENT WIKI TABS in the Author's Notes.

Tomorrow's plan:

1) get up
2) bus to movie theatre
3) buy tickets for next available show
4) stand in line for many hours
5) bus home for a midnight dinner.

My parents are like "but why don't you see it a few weeks from now when you won't have to wait in line?". Um. Because Gala? Like, come on parents. I am me. How many cons have I been to? Remember that time it was blizzarding and I had a ticket to Half Blood Prince at midnight and got there at 7 because I knew I wouldn't be able to get out of the house if I left later? In what bloody universe is waiting 2 weeks a feasible plan?

But yes. It will be boring. When I went to see Avengers I bought a ticket for a show three airings later than the one I'd planned on seeing, which meant a two hour line that I was NOT in the front of. I guess I will make sure my iPod is fully charged before I go to bed.

Stark, you better be worth it.
