Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] twisting_vine_x :D

First TV show I had self-insertion fantasies about:
Stargate, of course. Hell, I like to think I'm well on my way to my goal of actually getting to visit Cheyenne Mountain. :P

First fandom in which I interacted (online and in person) with other fans:
Stargate Atlantis/SG1. Ah, Gateworld. Fond(ish) memories.

Pairing in the first slash fanfiction I read:
LOL. Slash. The first slash fic I read was, like, a year ago, in SPN fandom. I'm sure it was Dean/Cas. My first het fic was John/Teyla, which happened way before I got into fandom. Those were the days when FF.net was king.

First RPS/RPF I read:
Merlin RPF: Bradley/Angel

First fanfiction I read that made me think, 'YES, this is exactly the kind of fanfiction I'd like to write...':
Oh, gosh, I don't even remember. I don't know if I ever thought that. Though, I think, Castles in the Sky from SGA fandom probably takes the cake. It's one of the few fics I read during those early years that's stuck with me. I don't even know if it was as good as I remember, but to me, it was everything perfect(even if it was gen).

Pairing in the first fanfiction I wrote:
John/Teyla, naturally. They were my gateway(hehehe) drug.

First OTP:
Sam/Jack. They were my OTP before I even knew what an OTP even was. All I knew was that after The Broca Divide, I really wanted them to live happily ever after.

First RPS/F OTP:
Bradley/Angel. Or, Bradley/Hussy. :P Oh, how I wish we still got video diaries.

First fannish friend I met in person:
Still waiting on this one. *sigh* Who knows who it'll be? If I get to go to a con next year, maybe I'll have something to fill in here. :P

First character I formally roleplayed:
Well, not actual in-person RP, but I did do twitter RP for a while in Sanctuary; I did Sally the mermaid and Kate Freelander.

O.O

What have I done.

No, seriously.
WHAT HAVE I DONE.

Well, I guess I've got myself a brand new job. Huzzah?

For everyone on my flist who was/is/has been a member of [livejournal.com profile] ontd_spnparty, if you don't already know, it was shut down today by the mods. I opened a new comm [livejournal.com profile] spn_party to take it's place. We'd love to have you! It's basically gonna be as close a replica to the original as possible.
majorshipper: (➘ all day and all night long)
I already feel not only much better, but I'm practically back to my regular self! I got three of the five big school projects due before the weekend done today so far, I'm starting on the fourth, and I fully plan on having them all done tomorrow by midnight(which is when they're due, but I'm just pretending that's my own arbitrary cut-off time).

That and talking to all of y'all did honestly make me feel better. And then [livejournal.com profile] ohmiya_sg got me all excited and yappy, and now I'm practically my bouncy self.

Also Dad brought me powdered donuts and ice cream because for all that he can be, having four women in a house has taught him what to do when one's pissy.
majorshipper: (➘ darn them talking animals)
I feel kinda bad for not actually doing much on LJ lately. To be honest, there's not very much interesting going on in my life. There's school, and that takes up enough on it's own that I don't do much else. Even in fandom, my inner lurker has been fighting to take over. I think it's just 'cause I'm so tired of the same old drudgery. *shrugs*

Today's been kinda tough, though. It was fine 'till I got home from campus and sat down to the work that's been building up. It's been a light week so far, but there's three big things due in the next few days(an informative speech, a memory speech video, and an essay detailing a tool or item of software for the ISS that we the student thought up) and I honestly have no motivation to do them. Plus, I was pretty sick yesterday, starting late in the afternoon, and I didn't sleep last night, so now I'm even more stressed from not sleeping and not getting work done.
Ugh. It just kinda feels like I'm barely keeping my head above water for no reason. I haven't heard back from my boss since December when they told me they still needed to find a secretary for our branch of the flight school, which means I have no income anymore. I haven't heard anything on the Academy's Summer program, and I feel like I'm stalled compared to how I was at the end of last year.
It's just really, really frustrating. I would feel better if I could actually accomplish anything fandom-related, and I'm making strides in my massive icon claims, but I still am not sure how much I'll have finished by the 20th.

I hate it when I get into these funks. :/ GAH. It's really annoying. In an attempt to cheer myself up, I am starting How I Met Your Mother. Wish me luck.

There was a lot of it. As I told Jen, it was a hair massacre! Pictures of what came off under the cut, though none of my snazzy new 'do because I roll sideways and don't do pictures of me online. Suffice it to say I really like it. My hair's too thick to have it look exactly like Hannah's but, I really like it. And I can wear hats! (I am wearing one now and I look ~good~)
Everyone at church tonight was awesome and loved it too.

scaring images! HAIR! Dead hair! Everywhere! Needless violence against hair! )

Yet another rec, I'm sorry, but I just can't help it.
Running Up That Hill
713 Coda - Gen - Sam & Dean - The days that Sam doesn’t go running are the bad days. The day after Emma is a bad day.

More Feedback Week, Feb 11-19, Leave a Comment

More feedback week is a little initiative to get everyone in fandom to leave just a few more comments this week, to drop feedback when you ordinarily wouldn't.
Go do check it out! You can post your own items to request feedback and check out things other people have mentioned.

But holy shit, this fic has got one of the most amazing, coolest, most badass apocalyptic showdown...ever. Like, I've read a lot of fic, and a lot in this particular genre, but this is so cool I just cannot deal. The final showdown is so epic, like, literally. And you don't even realize the awesomeness that's slotting into place until it's there...and then that ending(to the apocalypse).
Seriously. The only other thing I can compare it to is Named, and even then, their awesomenesses are in two different hemispheres.
GO READ IT.

Title: Dies Irae, or Something
Author: Alchemy Alice
Rating: PG-13
Total Word Count: ~50,000
Genre and/or Pairing: Action/Adventure/Romance! Dean/Castiel, Sam/Gabriel, Michael
Spoilers: Season 5 up to Episode 10.
Warnings: Apocalyptic violence, slash (obvi), multitudinous references to Biblical events that are then misused with blatant disregard for accuracy. Also, Good Omens references, and hella bad language. In other words, fun for all!
Summary: It starts with headaches, and it ends in a clusterfuck. So, business as usual, Apocalypse-wise.


Since I'm telling people what to do now, apparently, go vote for Dean/Cas at the now-infamous poll!
majorshipper: (♕ a girl of legendary times)
I kinda miss those days. Memes were fun! Anyways, this one is curtsey of [livejournal.com profile] freaksoldier.


1. Leave me a comment saying "Gateship One is Go".
2. I'll respond by asking you five questions of a very intimate and creepily personal nature (or not).
3. Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, ask them five questions.


My questions from her: )


I was supposed to have basketball today, but I woke up at seven feeling so miserable from a sore throat and a lack of sleep from how hard I've been pushing with school lately that I just made the executive decision not to go.
majorshipper: (♂ dean winchester has been saved)

Your poker face ain't fooling nobody, nobody here
We've all felt the flame and shed those same tears
Driving home to a one man hell, still counting years, still counting years
Hey brother we're all learning to love again

Making up your bed that day on a foreign floor between foreign walls
Thinking 'bout the words you'd say to a phone that never calls
Feel the weight of your father's ring and all those dreams, and all those dreams
Hey brother, we're all learning to love again


PERFECT DEAN'N'SAM SONG Y/Y? I was just listening to my shuffle the other day, and the first lines caught my ear, and so I listened it out, and now I can't not see it that way. Anyone else?
If [youtube.com profile] lockedinabathroom made a video to it I think I would die happy. Hell, if anyone did. *hinthint*
majorshipper: (Text - Dork side)
And if so, are you aware of Darcy/Clint fic? This is a long shot in the big dark night, but, hey, I figured I'd ask. Somehow I stumbled into [personal profile] smittywing's awesome Not Your Mother's Alma Mater WIP(I KNOW WHAT AM I DOING I JUST WHAAAAAAT WHY ALL THE WIPS) and I want to read more of them, because, apparently, they hit my nerdy girl/sweet guy love just right. Vaguely they remind me of Chuck/Becky and maybe Elizabeth/Rodney, though their dynamic was reverse.

Apparently this also cements the fact that I still like het. And I still like het exclusively sometimes, because while I can appreciate some of the Tony/Steve stuff, slash in this particular verse isn't my cuppa. Give me Tony/Pepper, Thor/Jane, Steve/Peggy and now apparently Darcy/Clint (ngl Natasha/Clint sounds good too). So I've still got my het-cred, apparently.

ANYWAYS. People into or even aware of Marvel's movie-verse; recs, comms, places to find more het fic? Hit me!


(also I really want to install my Alec moodtheme on LJ, but...I really, really like my A/G one, too, even if it hasn't been updated in years...just, staring at young!Jensen every time I post is really nice XD)

- Community Importing is available for all accounts(previously being paid accounts only), providing they are the maintainer/admin of both comms.
Hey, look, they went ahead and did what they said they were gonna do. Nifty

- Claiming Open IDs and integrating them into your existing DW account is explained in detail.
A bit of a delicate procedure, but totally worth it. Awesomesauce, basically. ♥

- No-invite account creation will remain open so long as the ratio of paid users is maintained at a sustainable level.
YAY! Meaning that so many people love DW they're buying paid accounts right off the bat, and enough people are signing up that they can keep a steady ratio! (if you haven't already signed up, LJ flist, now's the perfect opportunity...*cough* ;)

- DW will not be deleting any "abandoned" accounts i.e. if your account has nothing in it, then that's okay, they won't delete it like some others around here, with minor exceptions.
If you've claimed an account on DW at some point in the past but have not used it, because of whatever, you don't have to worry about it being purged to reclaim usernames

- And loads of other updates and explanations! Check it out!


For those who have recently made a DW account or are looking at one, I highly recommend this tool, which looks at your LJ flist and finds anyone on DW with the same username. It wouldn't work with users like me, who've got a different name on DW vs. LJ, but for most people, it'll bring back good results.
majorshipper: (✆ John's very familiar with this)
And continues to screw over their userbase with vagueness and a lack of communication. Seriously, it feels like they're trying to attract new users without giving a damn about those of us who are actual users right now(or what they might tell prospective users). I'm also extremely worried about this whole "getting rid of ads" business. I don't see how they can just do away with that method of revenue, especially since people are leaving in droves and taking their money and content with them. It makes me worry about what they're gonna replace it with.

It's titled State of the Goat 2012. Does kinda remind me of the last State of the Union address; full of contradictory platitudes and some truly terrifying proposed ideas mixed with happy buzz-words.

[community profile] scifibigbang/[livejournal.com profile] scifibigbang is signing up! You can visit the LJ or DW site to sign up. There's opened sign ups for artists and writers, and they're open for a while(first drafts of writer's stuff isn't due 'till June 30th!). Minimum word count is 20k.

Gooo, you know you want to! I'll be signing up as a artist tomorrow or this weekend, depending on when I get time to make my brain work again.


ETA: OH MY GOD SO MANY FANDOM THINGS TO DO, SO LITTLE TIME. Somebody hold me, I'm having my begining of the month 20in20 themes getting posted nervous breakdown. D:

Inexorable Gravity by [livejournal.com profile] lexicale
NC-17: Canon-AU, Dean/Jo/Sam(though, I'd say it's more of an R than NC-17)
Dean grew up looking after Sam and Jo. Jo may not be related to him, but she's still kind of his little sister, and he's not sure what's worse: that he's attracted to her anyways, or that he's attracted to Sam.

ALL THE HEARTS IN MY EYES FOR A RATIONAL, IN-DEPTH EXPLORATION OF THIS PAIRING OMG. It starts out Dean/Jo, admittedly, but it's the three of them, undeniably in love with each other and undeniably themselves, that makes it so fantastic. It's AU in that the Winchesters actually grow up with the Harvelles and they stay in contact even through Bill's untimely demise, but it utilizes canon incredibly effectively, and still gives you the characters as they should be, with believable changes brought on by their different lives. Dean is especially awesome. ♥

Goooo, read it. Be amazed. Wish there was more of this kind of fic in fandom. *shoos*

I want to write meta on Shawn's relationships and why he's the way he is with Juliet and all his relationships in general.
My brain. Why. All the metaness.
majorshipper: (➘this is my death to normalcy icon)
On the 1st, I will be getting my first haircut in over two years...and my first hair-cut where I got rid of this length since I was a pre-teen.
This is slightly terrifying. But also exciting. I know, don't ask me to pick one. I've decide that this pic of Hannah is what I'm going to be taking for her to check up. And I need to fill out the Locks For Love form, but I'm pretty much just stuck waiting 'till then.

Finally am listening to Ceremonials, and it is glorious, because, hello, it is F+TM. And I am THIS CLOSE to finishing Psych, after delaying for so long. NGL, it's so I can get onto Castle, which is now waiting longingly for my attention. \o/

ALSO, LOOK. THIS IS HILARIOUS:

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

  • Read more about ACTA here: ACTA Fact Sheet
  • Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text
  • Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history
  • Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden wherein he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA: Letter 1 | Letter 2 | Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here: Response
  • Watch a short informative video on ACTA: ACTA Video
  • Watch a lulzy video on ACTA: Lulzy Video

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] morgandawn at The SOPA Boycotts: One Single Post
Wil Wheaton blogged today about the MPAA directly threatening those politicians who came out against SOPA:

"
Reinforcing the fact that Chris Dodd really does not get what’s happening, and showing just how disgustingly corrupt the MPAA relationship is with politicians, Chris Dodd went on Fox News to explicitly threaten politicians who accept MPAA campaign donations that they’d better pass Hollywood’s favorite legislation… or else:
“Those who count on quote ‘Hollywood’ for support need to understand that this industry is watching very carefully who’s going to stand up for them when their job is at stake. Don’t ask me to write a check for you when you think your job is at risk and then don’t pay any attention to me when my job is at stake,”
It shows, yet again, that he just doesn’t get it. People were protesting not just because of the content of these bills, but because of the corrupt process of big industries like Dodd’s “buying” politicians and “buying” laws. To then come out and make that threat explicit isn’t a way to fix things or win back the public. It’s just going to get them more upset, and to recognize just how corrupt this process is."

Shortly after Chris Dodd made the statements, a petition was started to investigate whether the MPAA has engaged in bribery. Others are pointing out that as a recent Senator, Chris Dodd is not allowed to lobby until 2013 (or 2 years after leaving office).

And since there have been several posts about the Black March boycott and the SOPA Boycott, we've pulled all the info and the links into a public Google doc so you can link to only one post (and also link to it off LJ - the "Repost it to your journal" button only works on LJ.) And I am certain some of us could use a break from the constant reposting. ;-)

The TinyURL link is:

And last here is a great video that explains what the media industry has been trying to do since the creation of audio and video cassette recorders and why they are going to continue trying (like making it illegal to print a copy of a child's drawing to top your kids' birthday cake).  



majorshipper: (➘ characters welcome)
Because the last one was already too long, and I think this deserves it's own place to discuss(code for me saying "YEAH, I GUESS YOU'RE RIGHT. I WOULD ENJOY THAT")

Should I watch Castle?


because I don't have a list of movies downloaded that I've already got queued up to watch


Also, my glases hate my face. I got new versions of the frames I had before when I got new glasses a few weeks ago, and while I'm used to it, the new hardness of the frames is starting to rub my nose the wrong way. It's annoying. It feels like I have sunburn under the nose pieces, which is really friggin painful.
