Am back from the Ancestral Home. Have no water due to pipes having burst within the boiler room from cold. Want a shower. Apartment smells like bar due to neighbor's refusal to stop smoking inside, despite landlord's requests. Braved slick roads again only to find local-est Chinese food place closed.

Life hard.

On the plus side, happy-you're-home cats are great, brownies are going to happen, and I intend to call in dead to work tomorrow. There will be laziness, and flist-reading, and fic. *happy sigh*

And on that note, meme:

Ask me one fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general.

Just one question, please, but it can (and perhaps should) have sub-parts.

Question can be as wacky as you want. Ask me about tv shows, characters, fanfic in general, fandom issues/meta, anything about any of my stories specifically. Whatever you want.

Okay. So. Got a Star Trek question for you all:

Is this a spoiler? I don't actually know. Very likely, however. That is not the question, btw. )

In other news: meme! Appropriately scifi flavored meme, even!

Inspired by Doctor Who's "Turn Left:" Pick one of my stories and tell me a point in the tale that you'd change -- something tiny or big -- and I'll tell you how that one difference would have altered the course of the entire story.

Everything in my arsenal can be found here, if you wanted to play.

Okay first, note to self: Bailing out from what looks to be a truly spectacular horsey meltdown induced by rapidly approaching snowmobiles is a protocol best enacted when one does not have the combo of muddy, slick ground and a trick knee going for one. Just so you know. Ow.

Second: The WIP Meme! Which is to say, I've got kind of a lot of them, at the moment. Also, I'm bad at keeping it to just a sentence.
I'd rather be sitting on a beach somewhere with my laptop. I'd totally be willing to deal with sand in the keys, even. )

I think that's most of them. The ones that are vaguely coherent, anyway, and not just scraps here and there. I'm not counting the one with the goats, because it's actually done, with the exception of a little editing. Provided finals season stops thumping me into the ground, it will even see the light of day soon. \o/

And now I have to go write about osteoarthritis while wondering vaguely what the cartilage in my knee looks like these days. Life isn't fair. *sigh*


stillane: (Default)
Yuck. I have the flu. *sigh*

I'm pretty sure my whole school has the flu, really. Momentary pauses during lectures are filled with an awful lot of hacking and sniffling and whimpering these days, some of it from the lecturers. My favorite is one particular fellow who is... Okay, look. We know he's brilliant. He has to be. He's also kind of a space cadet, though. Most of us just sit in stunned wonder when he talks, and contemplate starting a drinking game for every time the words "Yeah, I don't know either" and "Huh. Wonder what's next" are uttered. Add illness and cold meds to that and you've got one seriously entertaining experience.

So yes, sick. I sound like I've developed a three-pack-a-day habit. I keep staring at the Torchwood finale on my desktop and wondering if I've currently got the fortitude for it. I'm thinking not so much, really. I need a movie in which stuff blows up entertainingly. Like, unapologetically so. Any suggestions?

Before I got the plague, I did the take-pictures-of-stuff meme, and then promptly failed to post said pictures on account of being diseased. Does it help if I post many unrequested pictures, too?

For [personal profile] thefourthvine, who wanted Wyatt:

For [profile] aurora_84, who requested...

In my quest to get these, however, I wound up taking many other pictures. Just in case you ever wondered...

And now, I think I'll go stare balefully at the Torchwood icon some more. Or maybe I'll just sleep. Sleep is good, right?

I have:

a clean house

a clean dog

a clean mind... okay, maybe not, but that's because [personal profile] sheafrotherdon (by way of [personal profile] winterlive, by way of John Russo's About Face project) posted this, and really, what can you do?


In other news: meme!

Since everything in my immediate vicinity is rather shiny and refreshed, I figure there will never be a better time to do that photos-o-stuff meme that pops up periodically. I can't remember the exact wording of it, but if there's something that strikes your fancy, let me know and I'll try and snap a picture of it.

And now, I am going to bask in candlelight and attempt to write something. There are worse ways to spend an evening, I suppose. *g*

Two things

Feb. 26th, 2008 09:35 pm
stillane: (Default)

1. Super sekrit message to [profile] feartheotter: it's here! Mwahahaha! Cows!!! I will send pictures, possibly of taunting my classmates with its awesomeness. Heh.


2. A meme I'm stealing from [personal profile] aesc, because after much of this day, there needs to be something goofy and fun around here:

The thing is, when people look for stories, they always make it sound like badfic. Now, often that's because it really is badfic, but sometimes it's good and they just suck at describing the story.

So, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to summarize badly any one (or more!) of my stories and I'll try to guess which it is. You could even pretend you don't remember the pairing or fandom to make it harder to guess.

All fic is present and accounted for in my memories. Go forth and baffle!
stillane: (Default)
I lie. I still cannot dance. But:

I've always missed out on doing these in the past, so... here goes nothing. My thread at [personal profile] medie's love meme is located hereabouts. You know, if you were so inclined.
stillane: (Default)
Or, well, I'll get to it by the end, anyway.  In the meantime,  what I've been up to:

And that's pretty much it. Have a meme.

Gakked from [personal profile] ignipes  and [personal profile] laceymcbain :

1. The first article title on the page is the name of your band.
2. The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.
3. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4. Use your graphics program of choice to throw them together.
5. Post your cover, along with these instructions. In the comments your friends will tell you what kind of music you play and the name of the album's single.

So... who am I and what do I sound like?
stillane: (Default)

I am somewhat addicted to list form lately. Sorry.

7. I want to write stuff. Why is it I always most want to write stuff when I have the least time to actually do it? Bah.

8. And lastly, I've got my rambles about Doppelganger unlocked over here now.
stillane: (Default)

Hi all.

No, don't fall over. It is, in fact, daylight, and I am at the keyboard. No one is more surprised than I. Just dropping in for another session of random life bits.

5. Am still writing. Whee! And because I'm a slave to curiosity, I might have maybe done that "Tell Me What to Create" meme thing.
stillane: (Default)
I'm not really here. I'm just pretending. It's been that kind of week.

Also, this cracked me up:

On the twelfth day of Christmas, stillane sent to me...
Twelve riviers drumming
Eleven westmins piping
Ten solvent90s a-leaping
Nine wicked_socks dancing
Eight resonant8s a-milking
Seven angelacaducas a-swimming
Six kageygirls a-laying
Five li-i-i-inabeans
Four innie_darlings
Three critters
Two good omens
...and a chaucer in a paleontology.
Get your own Twelve Days:

To all those of you bracing for/doing battle with finals, may your testing be easy and your celebration be long! (And [profile] feartheotter : will you be up for conversation tomorrow night, say 11ish over here? Haven't wanted to bug you while in the throws of year-end.)
stillane: (Default)

It's been a strangely social bunch of days lately. I've gone from full-out hermit status to a person with something resembling a life.

And a meme for the road (because I am extremely curious):

I think it's inevitable that as we read each other's journals we create mental pictures of each other. Post this on your own journal to find out who your friends see when they read about your life.

Two Rules:
1)The person must be in the movies or on TV (but doesn't have to be an actor/actress). The person can be specific to a role (e.g. Jennifer Elhe's Elizabeth Bennett) or just the person him/herself.
2) You have to post a link to a picture of said person in the comments.
stillane: (Default)

Hi crew.

Been scarce the last week or so, and figured it was time to check in.

And just for fun: a meme. This one is gakked from [profile] sdraevn, in the hopes that I will be guilted into getting more done by its very presence.

If you happen to be working on some creative writing project, fanfiction or NaNoWriMo or what have you, post exactly one sentence (or more) from each of your current work(s) in progress. It should probably be your favourite or most intriguing sentence so far, but what you choose is entirely your discretion. Mention the title (and genre) if you like, but don't mention anything else -- this is merely to whet the general appetite for your forthcoming work(s).

And there you have the latest on me. How are you all?

Meme. Baa.

Because I was righteously tagged by [personal profile] ignipes earlier:

Take a look at your LJ friends list, then list up to ten things you want to say to ten different LJ friends... Do not state who these people are. Do not confirm nor deny any "comment speculation". Then tag five people.

stillane: (Default)

Herein shall be the Five Questions Meme, the questions having been issued by [personal profile] ignipes. Ye have been warned.

stillane: (Default)
Your word is BUGGER. You are generally quite
restrained, but sometimes your anger or
frustration come to the surface and it all
comes out. Yet you somehow can't stop sounding
polite, despite it all.
