51stcenturyfox: (Ship Wars)
I think I've done this meme before. Anyway, I hope everyone does it so I can catch up on the stories I've missed!

In 2010 I wrote 14 stories, totaling 32,400 words (plus Yuletide, but I'm not counting that yet, or WIPs).  So. Fewer stories, but more words than last year, but there is a lot of shortfic. The things I co-wrote, with XT, Shane, Sam and Anya, were the best and the most fun.  <3  I also loved beta-reading for so many awesome writers;  thank you for letting me read your stuff first involving me in your fiction-writing process.

My first femslash and a ton of threesome action. (You have to say action like Alicia Bridges. ACK-SHON!)

Connected - Torchwood - (canon pairings)
It took almost dying to make him realise what living really meant

At the Still Point - TW/Doctor Who - (Ten/Jack) with [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge and [livejournal.com profile] shane_mayhem 
On the eve of regeneration, the Doctor has one last gift for Jack. (Go on, guess what it is.)

Keep It Like A Secret - Torchwood -  (canon pairings)
Who'd have thought?  Drabbles about everyone's filthy little secrets. So I guess this is a quintuple-drabble.

Different Strokes - Torchwood - (Jack/Ianto, both genderswitched by alien tech) with [livejournal.com profile] xtricks 
6,000 WORDS OF PORN  <3  Seriously, this came from an RP and is part of a larger, plotty arc. It makes me wonder if Jack/Ianto would be a huge pairing in fandom if they actually were women.

99:00 - Torchwood (Ianto/Gwen) - written for [livejournal.com profile] dark_fest 
The more things change, the more they stay the same (This ate my head for a month and I'm sorry my friends had to endure my interminable whining over it. Still the longest story I've ever written.)

Stolen from... everyone. :D   This is a new-ish purse, so is oddly clean.   Little Black Backpack!


Four lipsticks: Blush Chrome, Sugared Bronze, Midnight Red (?) and Foxy Lady (seriously). A lipgloss and a Bonne Bell Dr Pepper Lip Smacker (I'm five.)

Lone earring :(


Three packets of Taco Bell Fire Sauce. (In case I have a food blandness emergency).

Two pens.


Stamps. Are bell stamps still good?

LOSING lottery ticket.

Straw wrapper (Taco Bell.)

Dental floss & toofpaste.

My orange wallet. <3

A Walgreens receipt. (Probably bought some lip shit.)

I write like
Chuck Palahniuk

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

It must be short sentences + mucho dialogue, or something.

ETA, via [livejournal.com profile] kita0610  : It's a marketing ploy for a Christian self-publishing (read: shady vanity publisher) company, and the more hits they get with your linkage, the more publicity for them.

Ah, well. None of you guise would vanity-publish, would you?

Coincidentally, I just read [livejournal.com profile] apiphile's Fight Club fic, Echo.  It was very goooood.

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] solsticezero , but everybody's doing it!

Post a sentence (or paragraph) or two from as many of your WIPs as you want, with no explanation attached.

Ianto felt a bit unmannerly -- as if taking liberties with a stranger. This is still Jack, he reminded himself. He turned sideways. "So..." And he'd meant to quiz Jack about the history of the tech that had done this to them, but he saw Jack's expression -- lips slightly parted, he looked hungry. And pretty. No. Sexy. He was both foreign and familiar and Jack and... he was really goddamned pretty.


When Elizabeth shuts her front door behind her, turns and locks it, Neal is confused. She's coming with them,then. Somewhere. She peeks into the passenger side and exchanges some sort of complicated nonverbal eye language with Peter (Eye Chinese?) and Neal traces the lines in her palm as it presses against the rear right window before it slides downward and disappears, opens the back door.


"Ianto, will you help me with something?"

"Sure, what do you..." his voice trailed off as Gwen placed the cool black metal handle of the office scissors in his hand.

"Cut my hair."

I ripped this meme off of [livejournal.com profile] kel_reiley  and echo her disclaimer: I don't know if these opinions are unpopular or not.

If you disagree, I still love you!  I don't expect my friends to agree with me about what sort of pizza to order, let alone something as earth-shatteringly major as fandom opinions!  ;) 

Canon, confidentials and the duderus )

The Myers-Briggs/Jung typology test meme is going around. I took the test (I'd done it ages ago, at work) and got ENTP. (Interesting possibly only to me, you can spell it extravert or extrovert. Huh. Weird.) 

Some things about ENTPs (the Inventor?) Playing sports? LOL NO.

The best parts were:

One of two types most frequent among violators of college alcohol policy

and famous ENTPs include Weird Al Yankovic.

\O/ !!!!   (I love Weird Al.)

Have you taken this? Accurate or not?

Give me one character and I will tell you:

1. OTP for them.
2. Runner-up pairing.
3. Honourable mention(s).
4. Crack pairing(s).
5. Ship everyone else seems to like, but I don't.

I usually don't have OTPs. This sounds haaaaard.

Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2009. Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review." Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] hawk_soaring .

January: ahthankyew. So much
February: I had a dream last night about Ianto showing up at Dunder Mifflin as a temp (investigating an alien tech report in Scranton?)
March: Yesterday I took hungover neighbors to breakfast and then the beach at 7am, twittered, finished my first Doctor Who fic (it's more than a little cracky because: bodyswap!) read great recced fic, watched Dollhouse and scoffed a few drinks.
April: New focus! And a shiny new journal header to match. (It was April 1, ok?)
May: It's Friday! YAYS!
June: So anyway, I love me some threesomes.
July: It's big reveal day for [livejournal.com profile] ask_captainjack
August: So, what say you to another porn battle?
September: Back to my hotel for some overpriced gin and tonic I bought at the liquor store downtown* a breather after a busy stretch.
October: "'Ache,' 'pang,' 'prick,' 'twinge'-- how ironic the Victorian vocabulary of behavioral pathology now so perfectly described the palpations of her own desire." - Phillip Padgett, Milagro.
November: There are Torchwood-y things to read!
December: The Fanfiction Love Meme is groovy, but I'm not doing it myself.

Well, that was predictable... booze, porn, practical jokes and parody. And slackerdom. Yeah, I learned shit-tons this year! :D

NASA has had to debunk those "the world is ending in 2012" rumors. Um. LOL. (The disaster film is coming out this weekend and I'm sure it'll be a blast. So to speak.)

I remember when I was 11 or something, picking up a paperback at a rummage sale with a "the world will end in 1978!" premise. It hadn't. So since that day, I've always thought world-ending predictions were sort of hilarious. 

I admit taking some cash out of the ATM before Y2k in case my bank's computers had a case of the stupids for a day or two. 

Why so gullible, internet?

In other news...

I'm terza rima, and I talk and smile.
Where others lock their rhymes and thoughts away
I let mine out, and chatter all the while.

I'm rarely on my own - a wasted day
Is any day that's spent without a friend,
With nothing much to do or hear or say.

I like to be with people, and depend
On company for being entertained;
Which seems a good solution, in the end.

You Would Be a Witty Celebrity

There's a good chance that your big break would come from being funny. You have a well crafted sense of humor.

And while you may branch out into other areas, your cutting insight and sarcasm would always be your trademark.

As a celebrity, you would not be afraid of publicity stunts and working the press a little. You wouldn't take any of it very seriously.

You'd be a celebrity in the mold of Tina Fey, Sara Silverman, Seth Rogen, and Will Ferrell.

Good. Because I find the concept of celebrity to be pretty fucking hilarious. :D

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

Meme stolen from [personal profile] temporal_witch

[livejournal.com profile] neifile7 is having risotto and I am not. I am envious.

Work is eating my head.  Ow.

51stcenturyfox: (Default)
[personal profile] kel_reiley selected icons for me to 'splain.

(I  can't cut this post. LJ  HATES ME today.)

1. Scully is my default "eating/talking about food" icon, but I love that she's pausing here as if to say: "Wait. WAT?!?"

2. John Hart and Gwen Cooper. Hate!sex! I've written it and really want to see more filthy porn fic. I'm now the mod at [livejournal.com profile] call_me_vera and unfortunately the archives were cleared, so we need to restock it with links.

3. My only Donna icon!  I really ganked this because the manip, by [personal profile] dana_cz is so incredibly good. It's really Tennant/Tate, technically. But I like it.

4. Gwen and Ianto ("this is a very sexy icon!" - kel)    IKR? LOOK at all of that tasty welshness! It will come as no surprise that lucy_locket made this, since she ships them like FedEx. I <3 Gwen/Ianto friendship (or anything) fic, though I have to say I ship Jack/Gwen/Ianto more.

5. Andie and Steff from Pretty In Pink. I made this to go with a fic I began writing because of an anonymous Fandom!Secrets request and I never got to the GOOD PART.  I feel so guilty.

6. This is a quote from the BtVS S4 episode The Harsh Light of Day. Harmony is writing Spike loves Harmony on his back with a lipstick, and he's like... WHY? She protests that he loves his work or quest more than her, and he tells her: I love SYPHILIS more than you. It's so mean, but a really funny line. I feel sorry for Harmony more often than not, but she'd drive me up the fucking wall, too.

Comment with ICONS if you want me to pick 5 or 6 of yours. Limited, I think, because I have a huge hangover. Syrah. *headdesk*

And PLEASE go vote in [livejournal.com profile] writerinadrawer Final round! Nick, Sam and Kali. They're all good, but there can be only one ring to rule them all. Or something like that.

I stole this meme from [livejournal.com profile] verasteine .  She gave me words for five words meme too, but I'm lazy so I'm not doing that one. LAZY!

Journal meme

My username is
: [livejournal.com profile] 51stcenturyfox -- It's a play on words from Jack Harkness (and John Hart) being sexy, foxy bitches from the future (not me!) This was a default icon I made with the film studio logo but I rarely use it:

My journal name is: dynamite with a laser beam - that's a line from the song Killer Queen, which I like very much because Freddie Mercury is fabulous and awesome. Plus, laser beams are a scifiOMG reference. I think the song is quite possibly about a concubine. But an extraordinarily nice concubine with excellent taste. :D 

My title is: I guess I don't have one, really. It's my username. I retitle my journal header with text to fit the image. I think I want a new header soon, just because I like to swap things around.

My friends page is called: Entertaining People (because you are)

My default userpic: is Holly Golightly from Breakfast At Tiffany's. I'm not really a massive Audrey Hepburn fan, but I think she's stylish and that look of "Well, you know, I am registering a look of slight disbelief at whatever you're on about, sport," cracks me up. I am also rarely without my sunglasses. They are GLUED TO MY HEAD.

fastidious and precise )

It is the peer-pressure packaged food meme. (I don't even know. I made that up). Try some manufactured commercial foodstuff your friends endorse, even if the picture on the box freaks you out.

I mean, look at it. It doesn't look that creepy, just kind of unappetizing. Or am I wrong?

Yup, I am trying Kraft Bagel Fuls. I'd never heard of them or seen the commercials. [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge mentioned their handy breakfasty nature first, but how could I resist these glowing testimonials from [livejournal.com profile] snaxcident ?

Once you try the Bagel Fuls you will all be glad. You will wonder how you managed in the Before Times

Once you go Bagel Ful you can never go back to not knowing. It's like taking the red pill or the blue pill. But it's not a pill, it's a tube made out of bagel. - Claire

Claire should write their ads. That's even better than "My husband gives me one every morning." She made a chocolate cake with Diet Coke and Pimm's in it, so she is adventurous.


Name: Bagel Fuls. Bagel Full Of Cream Cheese and whatever (mine has cherry jam-like stuff.) There are other flavors.
Packaging: See above. Each Bagel Ful is individual wrapped in a foil packet for carrying. "Hey, baby, is that a Bagel Ful in your pocket, or..."
Prep: They can be microwaved or toasted lightly, or shoved in your pocket right out of the fridge for portable munching.
Look: Golden brown pre-toasted appearance. They are about an inch shorter in length than a standard hot dog bun. They look better in the flesh for realz than as pictured on the box. On the box they look dry where they're ripped open.
Smell: Hardly any scent at all. I've got my nose pressed against one, very hard. Hmm. Most plain bagels don't SMELL anyway, though.
Texture: Not really dry nor moist. Smoother than a baby's bottom, but an unmoisturized baby. Resembles a frozen commercial bagel like Pillsbury's/Lender's'.
Taste: Unremarkable. Stretchy/chewy when you bite into it. Like a... plain bagel bun stuffed with cream cheese and cherry. The filling is like Toaster Strudel Cherry and... cream cheese. Not terrible but not ZOMG NOMMY! I can see having these for breakfast if you commute and don't have time to sit down and toast a bagel then spread cream cheese on it. (Though... 5 minutes.)
Grade: B. I will eat the rest of these ($2.50 per box) but probably won't buy them again.

Claire, have you tried the ONE POUND HUNGRY MAN DINNERS YET?

Tried anything different lately?

Meme stolen from everyone on my f-list.  I chose this desktop because I enjoy travel, think aircraft are pretty and love that particular shade of blue.  Unfortunately, can't remember where I downloaded it;  there were other nice ones by the same artist.  During the work week I usually have three rows of tabs open. :D  The desktop is cleared of pics and files every few days, because I save to it. Sometimes it's half-covered.

Click for big'un.
