Comment with a prompt and I will post fic right away. Yes, right away. I'm going to make myself do this because this girl needs practice writing and needs to stop dithering and second-guessing herself.

Fandoms: Doctor Who, Firefly, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (why not? i'll try anything once), and Skins (bear in mind I've only seen Series 1-4).

I can't promise they'll be stellar but I'm going to give it my best shot. Prompt away!

Okay, straight up: BEST EPISODE EVER.

Because this journal needs some positivity and I've been a grumpy bastard lately: an anecdote from Mr. Toxic.

When he was working on Sunday, he saw a guy in the store wearing an Eleventh Doctor t-shirt. He was thinking how nifty that was and then did a double-take when he realized that in addition to the t-shirt the dude was wearing a fezz.

If I'd been working that day and I had seen him, I would've walked right up to him and said, "Fezzes are cool. You know what else is cool? Bow ties." THEN I'D HAVE A COOL NEW FRIEND.

Sometimes people don't suck. :D

So we were watching tv the other night and the commercial for the remake of Fright Night comes on and I'm sitting there thinking the usual thoughts I think when movies get re-made ("really, Hollywood? Are you out of ideas again? What are your fucking problems?") and I see a familiar face and jolt.

My husband says dryly, "Yes, I think that was David Tennant, too."

*quick google search*

Holy shit, son, David Tennant is playing the Roddy McDowall role. Only he looks like the Ghost of Christmas Present from The Catherine Tate Show. WHAT. You guys realize I might have to actually watch this now, right? God damn it, DT. Why did you have to turn down the Simon Pegg movie? I guess you need to buy Olive shoes and food and stuff.

F-list, I need advice. Have any of you ever used while shopping online? I'm tempted to use them because they have this Doctor Who boxset that's reasonably priced and I've been making grabby-hands at the page for days. But I've never ordered from them before and googling them hasn't shown me any reviews so I'm pretty hesitant to give what could very well be some fly-by night operation my credit card number.

So if anyone knows anything or if any of you know anyone who's shopped from Cheqowt, I'd love to hear about it. (Guys, it's 98.85 for 5 box sets. You know how much five box sets would cost me on Amazon? ELEVENTY BILLION DOLLARS, THAT'S HOW MUCH.)

It's good to know that when I pay good money for a service, it blinks in and out on a regular basis. I might have to join the huffy hoardes who have already moved to Dreamwidth since LJ's last shenanigans. Damn it. I don't want to move! :(

Anyway. My default icon really doesn't match my grumpy mood. Maybe another icon is in order. *sulkily looks through my saved images*

Hey, uh, remember how I've been hemming and hawing all these years about a sequel to my AU Firefly fic Girl Anachronism? (If you don't, nor do you care, feel free to scroll on to the rest of your f-list since the rest of this entry will bore the bejeezus out of you.)

Um, I have the first chapter written. I don't know if I'm going to have the momentum, inspiration, or motivation to finish it but hey, I got the first chapter written. Does anyone want to read it?

Well, here it is.

The First Fic Toxic Has Written in... ? )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (chipettes: eleanor - meme time!)
Meme from [ profile] moetushie

Pick 10 of your favorite books or series.
Post the first sentence of each book. (If one sentence seems too short, post two or three!)
Let everyone try to guess the titles and authors of your books.

1. Once on a dark winter's day, when the yellow fog hung so thick and heavy in the streets of London that the lamps were lighted and the shop windows blazed with gas as they do at night, an odd-looking little girl sat in a cab with her father and was driven rather slowly through the big thoroughfares.
2. When I stepped out in the bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house, I had two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home.
3. On September 15, 1981, a boy named Jack Sawyer stood where the water and land come together, hands in the pockets of his jeans, looking out at the steady Atlantic.
4. When he was nearly thirteen, my brother Jem got his arm badly broken at the elbow. - To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee ~ guessed by [ profile] okegirl
5. There was no possibility of taking a walk that day.
6. It was a nice day. All the days had been nice. There had been rather more than seven of them so far and rain hadn't been invented yet. - Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett ~ guessed by [ profile] mystic_notions
7. It's hard being left behind. I wait for Henry, not knowing where he is, wondering if he's okay. It's hard to be the one who stays. - The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger ~ guessed by [ profile] mystic_notions
8. I was born twice: first, as a baby girl, on a remarkably smogless Detroit day in January of 1969; then again as a teenage boy, in an emergency room near Petoskey, Michigan in August of 1974. - Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides ~ guessed by [ profile] mystic_notions
9. My father had a face that could stop a clock. I don't mean that he was ugly or anything; it was a phrase the ChronoGuard used to describe someone who had the power to reduce time to an ultraslow trickle. - The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde ~ guessed by [ profile] may_b_maybe
10. On the whole, we're a murderous race. According to Genesis, it took as few as four people to make the planet too crowded to stand, and the first murder was a fratricide.
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (billie piper: READ)
Okay, I'm really sick of this whole "let's throw supernatural elements into classic literature cuz it's funny!" trend.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: HAHAHA BEST IDEA EVAR!
Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters: Heh!
Jane Slayre: Oh, so like, Jane Eyre? And slayer? Huh.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter: *blank stare*

Every other title I see (Little Vampire Women, Queen Victoria Demon Slayer, Jane and the Damned, The Undead World of Oz, and many many more) is turning me into a pinch-faced, disapproving school marm.

I couldn't sleep at all last night so I ended up marathoning the second season of Skins from Michelle's episode onward and dios mio I love those kids. Adore them. I love them so much that I really don't want to watch the third season with all the new characters.

I know I have some Skins fans on my f-list so tell me: are the second gen kids any good? I don't care about Effy a whole lot and Pandora gets on my nerves (not quite as bad as Anwar does, to be honest) so I'm not sure if I'm completely sold on a season where the only familiar characters make me go meh. Considering Effy's the lead, I thought maybe Tony might pop up from time to time but from research it looks like he doesn't. *emo tear* So anyway: should I pass or at least give it a try?

All right, here it is: my book list I've been keeping every year since my first year of college! (That would be 2003 for those of you playing at home.) This year I've set a new personal best for myself: I read 116 books!

September 20, 2009 - September 20, 2010 )

I think I gave myself carpal tunnel. As always, I recommend everything except when I don't, you only need to ask to get my opinion. Discussion is always welcome since um, I love books in case you didn't notice.
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (TWILIGHT: edward - maybe he's born with)
So, um. I renewed my LJ account.



*ahem* Anyway. So I spent last night reading through Songs From A Firefly and When I Was A Boy (the Firefly fics I wrote ages ago about the children of River and Jayne from Firefly) and now I want to write the story I've been considering for awhile now, the sequel to Girl Anachronism. Yeah I know, I want to write this after the majority of my readers have moved on, I'm so timely. (Hey, I'm just now reading Twilight. And don't get excited; it's not an enjoyable experience for me so far. I'm only doing it so that I'm "allowed" to have the opinion that I don't like the series. I'm waiting now for the "If you don't like it, why did you read it?" response from my fan friend. *grits teeth*)

Basically, this entry is a warning that I'm going to start posting some pretty weird fic here. My original fic inspiration has dried up, so I thought I'd go back to fan fiction to get the writing juices flowing again. It'll be a good warm-up for when I do Nano again in a few months. If you're interested, cool, if not, that's also cool. You can scroll on by and I won't think any less of you for it. :)

Now to take a bath and get some reading done. (Thank god I read more than one book at a time. I'll have some relief from The Book I'm Not Allowed To Hate Until I Finish It.)
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (david tennant turned on)
Is it weird that I spent 45 minutes on YouTube looking at silly 60s music videos? And I mean SILLY like Annette Funicello and the Beach Boys singing "The Monkey's Uncle" in the first three minutes of The Misadventures of Merlin Jones. I just like campy crap, okay? She loves the monkey's uncle, yeah yeah.


Day 28 - First t.v show obsession )

Earlier Days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (DW: amy - hairtastic)
We have a cake!! Well, we have an eight inch cake and 30 cupcakes. I'm so glad the girl we dealt with didn't tell us to jump off a cliff since she's already having to do two other weddings on the 7th. Ugh. So yeah. Now to figure out my hair, music, and who's buying what food. Whew!

Now is the time on Sprockets when we meme!

Day 21 - Favorite ship )

Day 22 - Favorite series finale )

Earlier Days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (the office: andy - nakey)
I thought I'd play catch-up with the meme since I've been up since 5:45 a.m.. Noooooooooo, body. Fail. :(

Day 19 - Best t.v show cast

The Office U.S. I may have lost interest in the show but it undeniably has an awesome cast. I know some people are bitter about how Jim and Pam are such a huge focus but it really is an ensemble piece. Everyone has their own fully defined character and I love everyone. (Except Ryan. And Angela. And Erin; though she is very sweet she's boring and I can't forgive boring.)

Day 20 - Favorite kiss )

Earlier Days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (chipettes: eleanor - meme time!)
Woke up at 6:00 for no reason except my body didn't want to sleep anymore. I'm sorry you can't handle SHEER AWESOMENESS, BODY. :(

So now we play meme catch-up and maybe I'll update about my life later.

Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure show

As I think I've said before, I don't believe in the concept of guilty pleasures. Like what you want to like and if your friends give you crap for it, BFD. But I guess my answer for this is True Blood. When I met up with Hitch recently and mentioned that I enjoyed the show, she didn't say anything but she seemed disappointed in me, lol. So I guess I won't be joining the "cool" lunch table any time soon.

Day 17 - Favorite mini series

Stephen King's It, hands down. I watched it constantly as a kid and Tim Curry is the reason I'm completely terrified of clowns. Particularly male, red-headed ones. SO MUCH DO NOT WANT. Also, baby!Seth Green is in it and it was a funny realization to make as I got older to realize kid!Richie Tozier was indeed Scott Evil/Oz from Buffy/Kenny from Can't Hardly Wait/and so on. (Wasn't Seth Green in every single movie that came out between the years 1997 and 2000?

Day 18 - Favorite title sequence

Skins, Season One. Look at Cassie bouncing on the trampoline! Yay, Sid! Everyone looks so pretty! I usually skip the opening sequence of a show once I've seen it a million times, but not so with Skins. I keep watching it because I love the sadly whimsical music (and tap the air to the last little DAH DAH DAH DAH DAH part) and it just sets the tone perfectly. I love this show. (I'm stuck in Season Two, though. I know Cassie/Sid gets all fucked up and I'm scared to see it happen. *is a wuss*)
