2nd-Jul-2009 11:22 pm - Gundam Wing versus Trek knockout battle!
Drabble Battle #2! Unfortunately, the Discworld prompt somehow managed to fling itself off the Elephants and go thundering elsewhere, so for the moment the battle rages between Space and Space. 8D [info - personal]voksen is to blame for the Gundam Wing, and everyone else is to blame for Trek.

Again, word count is not an indication of bias (FOR SERIOUS THIS TIME), and nothing is really read through or fully thought out. Experimenting with a few new styles, too!

Gundam Wing: Treize lives! But Zechs takes huge political falls. (And I somehow manage to write only the introduction, where Treize doesn't appear at all, huzzah!) 1031 words. )


Trek: Flying-o-phobic McCoy, meet Starfleet! 437 words. )


DECISIONS, DECISIONS:



ALSO WIK!!!: it is imperative (see the number of exclamation marks I used there?) that you give me your addresses for the Great Mailer if you wish to receive mail! SHYNESS IS NOT AN OPTION. I love sending mail, so indulge my sad little life and go paste yourself there. 8D
21st-Jun-2009 12:01 am - In point form:
  • While bureaucracy is very fun to write fic about, waiting 3 hours for a 2 minute interview at the American Embassy is not. D:
  • Discussing the philosophy of mathematics is a bit like a snake trying to eat it's own tail. *insert FMA reference here*
  • Retail therapy sort of fixes everything
  • On my to-read list:

    [x] Haruki Murakami - After Dark
    [x] Neil Gaiman - Coraline (WHY YES I AM SLOW ON THE UPTAKE)
    [] Homer - The Iliad books 12-24
    [] John Steinbeck - East of Eden
  • On my to-procure list:

    [] Terry Pratchett - Nation
  • On my to-complain list:

    [] Boss being unbearable
    [] Quitting now moving up on list of priorities


And, for fandom exercising, DIALOGUE MEME - comment with a character, a situation, a prompt, and I'll write you a one-line bit of dialogue! Feel free to PARRY/BANTER/COUNTER BACK. :D TARGET THE FOLLOWING FANDOMS FOR EXTRA POINTS: Discworld's Moist and Lu Tze books, Lucifer.

[edit] ALSO, everyone should go read today's xkcd, and then Wiki Erdos number, and THEN wiki Erdos-Bacon numbers (as in, Kevin-Bacon-the-actor Bacon), because that article is hilarious for the following paragraph:

The only ways a lower [Erdos-Bacon] number could be achieved would be: )

Also, the new Fullmetal Alchemist:

This is why I put off watching it for so long:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

*rocks back and forth* I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO HURT ME, I KNEW HUGHES WOULD TAKE MY HEART AND STOMP ALL OVER IT LIKE IT WAS NOTHING; I KNEW THAT WATCHING HIM AND ROY AND GRACIA AND ELYSIA WAS GOING TO HURT; I KNEW THAT ED WAS GOING TO MAKE ME MENTALLY EXPLODE; I KNEW THAT IN SPITE OF LOVING OKAWA TORU FOREVER THAT MIKI SHIN WAS GOING TO TAKE ROY AND DEVELOP A FACET OF HIM THAT MAKES ME WANT HIS ROY AND OKAWA'S ROY TO BE IN THE SAME ROOM VIOLENTLY MAKING OUT AND AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUGH

14th-Nov-2008 12:44 pm - Goodwill and happytimes!
YULE SEASON IS ALMOST HERE ♥ I've only spent about a year in fandom so far, but the Non-Denominational Celebration Season is a good time as any to express my heartful thanks to all of you people whom I've come to know over the last twelve or so months. ♥

IN THE SPIRIT OF THE SEASON, THEREFORE: goodwill times! I'm a big proponent of sending stuff off to all ends of the earth. Most human beings I know are big proponents of receiving stuff in the mail. ERGO:

all I want for

If you want to spread joy and receive and/or give back, there's this beautiful meme below. Comment below, or leave a link to your own post, and everyone can LINK BACK AND FORTH FOR GREAT JUSTICE:




STEP ONE
Make a post to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 unlimited holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related to medium to really big. The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

STEP TWO
Surf around your flist to see who has posted their list. & now here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

List! )

GO FORTH AND SPREAD AND PIMP. ♥
