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.

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)

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*

That I can view my entire flist, comms and journals, in a reasonable amount of time. I've stopped watching quite a few comms, and I think it's because pretty much most shows are pretty quite right, now, but, hey, getting back into the swing of fandom is a good thing, right?

OH ALSO. Everyone needs to go read [livejournal.com profile] lunasky3's Mafia!AU Sam/Lucifer fic and [livejournal.com profile] princess_aleera's fic in the same 'verse of Dean being a detective and also kinda a jerk but loving Sam and having to deal with Cas's soul-staring.
YOU KNOW YOU WANNA.

The Return of Livejournal
by Neal Ungerleider

LiveJournal, one of the web's most popular early blogging sites, is launching a comeback in the United States. Their plans for 2012 include massive changes for users. Oh, and "Game Of Thrones" creator George R.R. Martin is a big user.

Read more if you're interested in some of the history and dynamics of LJ and the screwing over we know is to come )

And this is why I love Dreamwidth. Because it's not LJ and their BSery

[livejournal.com profile] princess_aleera, just ignore this post. Move right on along. This is just us dwelling on that dark SPNy place.

ANYWAYS. GUYSSS I READ FIC FOR SHERLOCK. I ONLY READ FIC FOR SPN ANYMORE. IDEK WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. Sherlock, obvs

Anways. It is sad and even more angst inducing but it gives a fantastic look at John's state of mind, after.

It's gen, and not super long, and it's title is Getting Up.


I think my sore throat is getting better, but it'll probably still be horrible tomorrow. I hate how I get it the week all of school starts up again. I think it's to do with it being that time of month and the fact that I always get sick this time of year. so basically everything's ganging up on me. :/


(does anyone else think American Pie(the song) is really long and rambly?)

You know that feeling when you're pushing and pushing to get through with something so you can get to the break...and then you realize you're just going to have to work and push through the break too?
Yeah, I'm at that point. Looking at my to-do list and how much of it has to be done before Christmas and NY and I'm kinda just reeling. I want to curl up in a corner and watch ridiculous movies and eat popcorn and candy canes for the rest of the year.
Egh. Life. Why you so...full?

In other news, thanks everyone for the well wishes for the benefit! It was good...not as well as we had hoped, and a lot of stuff in the auction went for a lot lower than we'd hoped, but, at least it was something. Trying to divy up what goes where is hard, though, since it's not enough to pay off all of one thing. Just one thing at a time, pretty much, just like always.

Me and the brother finally sat through and watched X-Men: First Class all the way through, finally. I've only got one remarks; yeah, tumblr was totally right, because it's basically one big gay epic Greek tragedy. Everything was sadness by the end. And Charles was kinda unrealistic and an idiot, but I won't get into that too much. Basically, it was good, but, pretty much only on the same level as the other X-Men movies. Certainly not comparable to the rest of the Marvel crop from recently.

Also, posted my [livejournal.com profile] sassy_minibang artwork! The author's gonna put up the main post to the site later(speaking of which, y'all should totally go check out the stories they've gotten. I've only had time to read, like, four of the fics, but they were fantastic), but I won't be around 'till tomorrow afternoon late, so I put mine up tonight. It's over here, for anyone interested!

I've also been working on a 2014 Dean/Cas mix., which has been a...difficult process, as anyone who's been around me during [livejournal.com profile] ontd_spnparty's FFAs can attest to my whining about it. But it's done! And now I have to wait to post it to avoid spamming my comm. But, I figured, hey, I've got people on my flist who'd probably be interested in a peek at it, so here's the covers, if you like;
under a cut because woah, they're pretty big )

ETA: Woah, LJ. Makeover much? First reaction; I DON'T LIKE ITTT GO BAAAACKK. As soon as there's a Stylish fix for it, I'm probably going back.

ETA2: Now I'm gonna go curl up with my printed up fic and work on my piece for [livejournal.com profile] erasureathon.

ETA3 aka last one I swear: They did fix the tags page! It's not, like, two inches wide anymore!

So I was going through my bookmarks looking for something to make me feel better about the mess that was friday's episode and the horrible characterizations and just something fluffy in general, when I stumbled onto this one;

Your Apple Pie Suburban Hell Happily Ever After (7676 words) by favicontuesday
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Castiel/Dean Winchester, Becky Rosen/Chuck Shurley, Lucifer/Sam Winchester, Dean Winchester/Lisa Braeden
Characters: Dean Winchester, Becky Rosen, Castiel, Sam Winchester, Chuck Shurley, Lisa Braeden, Bobby Singer, Lucifer (Supernatural), Michael (Supernatural)
Summary: In which Becky and Dean search for Chuck and Sam, Castiel discovers a love of milkshakes, Sam regrets being a good Samaritan, and Lucifer is still entirely too interested in Sam's body for Sam's peace of mind.

IT IS LIKE THE BEST AU OF S6/7 EVER. And parts of it are so echo-y of S7, even though this was written long before S7 and even S6. Aaaannnyways. In case anyone else is in need of a good fix-it style fic.

How fast are y'all at typing? Are you more of a touch-typist or do you have to look at what you're doing or are you just more of a hunt-n-peck kinda person?

I've always assumed that people who use the internet competently(i.e. competent enough to have a functioning LJ, lol) are pretty good typists, but someone pointed out to me that a lot of people these days can't type without watching their hands.

Personally I type a good solid 60wpm on Mavis Beacon without looking, but I developed that from when I was a kid and I'd spend hours and hours goofing off with writing and playing with HTML while watching what I was doing, so as time passed, I just muscle-memorized which letters were which, and it's stuck.

Random factlet; my mum says she could type 90wpm on the old-fashioned typewriters back in the day(since she was a medical transcriptionist, this was kinda necessary), which has me bowing in awe, because while those typewriters are fun as heck to use, they're a lot harder than computer keyboards to deal with.


Also! I wrote 1500 words of possibly incoherent fic about Lisa stumbling into Sam and Dean's next hunt and walking away...unchanged. Because someone told me it needed to be written. Maybe I'm finally catching that writing disease where it becomes hard to write less than 500w? Lord knows it's about time.
(For those who don't know; back when I was doing a ton of stuff in Merlin fandom, I often bemoaned the fact that I couldn't seem to write anything over a thousand words to save my life)
