GUYS. I wanted you to be the first to know. I’ve fallen in love.

Their name is Final Fantasy XV.


Let me explain.

So I am very aware I’ve barely posted recently -- about three times a month since March, and this last month it FEELS like I’ve barely posted because it’s almost all been about wider-world stuff. (And even then, I’ve been so quiet given what’s happening? Because British politics right now is BANANAS.)

This is mostly because I’ve been working a LOT, and playing pretty hard too. I really want to do a catch-up post on all the RL things, and also about a bunch of the fannish things I’ve been doing (not so much on the writing of fic, sadly -- it’s been pathetic) and etc. Buuut right now I need to tell you about Final Fantasy XV because it is EATING MY HEAD.

I don’t think I’ve ever been this emotionally compromised over a fandom. I cried down the phone to [livejournal.com profile] son_of_darkness (aka [tumblr.com profile] bestchocobro/[tumblr.com profile] sodsta) for the better part of an hour over the ending, and was only comforted when we made kinkfic plans.

It’s really very much all [livejournal.com profile] son_of_darkness’s fault.

so whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat at least I had the strength to fight )

It’s so great. Like, it’s incredibly awesome as a canon, and it kinda fits my fic interests and skills (dark kinky porn, romantic kinky porn, and punny banter) to a T. Plus I love reading hurt/comfort, and I’ve barely written it ever but I just signed up for a [community profile] hc_bingo card because I do wanna write more h/c and this canon is RIDICULOUSLY good for it.

And these CHARACTERS. I love them ridiculously much. There’s this enormous muscled bro who’s so kind and connects with people, and lashes out against his prince when their friend is seriously hurt, and his whole family legacy is shielding the king but it’s impossible. And exasperated, sarcastic, fond, kind Iggy, who cooks for them and is the prince’s adviser and strategist and mum friend, and so hardcore and so practical and so lovely. (He reminds me of Giles in a lot of ways, including the sudden darkness of what he’s willing to do to protect his warrior.) Both these guys are so young and trying to take care of their prince, who’s even younger. Prompto, the best friend, he’s funny and makes awful puns and takes selfies with the daemons they fight; he’s the prince’s only friend from outside the courtly world and he gets crushes on all the girls and he’s screamingly vulnerable. His parents were never home, he was a fat (and self-hating) & friendless kid, he worries that he’s worthless and is desperate to earn his place. That his origins with the enemy nation will be discovered and his friends will reject him. And then the villain tricks his best friend into pushing him off a moving train.

SPEAKING OF. OMG, the main character, Noct. He’s a sarcastic little bitch, and he sleeps all the time, and he hates vegetables despite Iggy’s best efforts, and he has back and leg pain from a daemon attack as a kid, and he had this miserable lonely childhood even as the other kids were desperate to glom onto a prince. And he yearns to play games at the arcade and eat junk food and be a normal kid but he never whines about it. He’s so scared that he won’t be enough, that he won’t be heroic or brave enough to do his duty, but he is, of course he is, he doesn’t flinch. *cries forever*

I LOVE THEM. I want to write h/c for their pain and dark porn for their encounters with the amazing, amazing villain. He’s super manipulative and clever and totally wins through his defeat, and he likes emotionally torturing the heroes and touching their faces and being super-sleazy. He’s a delight.

I have fallen HARD for a new fandom, guys. Not leaving any of my old ones, of course, but WOW.

Day 15

In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers. Share you love and squee as loud as you want to. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Dear fandom,

You’ve brought me more than I could ever really enumerate here. I mean, it was because I went to Azkatraz, a Potter con in 2009, that I met many of the people who are now close friends in RL. A lot of those people no longer share a fandom with me, but it doesn’t matter.

When I was twenty-one, I slapped my sister in the face and my mum kicked me out )

Want a drabble?

So I realised recently I’m too poor to send Christmas cards to you guys this year. Which makes me sad; yours have begun to arrive and they make me so happy!!

So, whether you send Festivus cards or not: please leave a character/pairing/threesome etc in the comments, along with a one-word prompt. [One-word rule is flexible but aimed at keeping out complicated ideas.] Prompt can be festive but doesn’t have to be, particularly since Christmas ghost stories are a classic for a reason and I’m kind of in the mood for some dark porn. I’m going to spend the Twelve Days of Christmas writing and posting drabbles for everyone who asks, amidst seeing lots of extended family members and teaching people on the 27th.

- The love meme is at ~1200 comments and still going strong. What the hell, guys. This is amazing.

- I’m not waving but drowning in a sea of LJ inbox and email notifications. But that is LOVELY. Do keep leaving comments and starting threads as you please.

- Being one of the top posts on LJ gets you random libertarians telling you off for your anti-2016 vitriol, apparently??? Super, super weird. Don't feel the need to go and tell him off though - I appreciate the defenders but a pile-on rather spoils the love meme mood. (I did deeply enjoy [livejournal.com profile] therealsnape's telling-off though. Terrifying schoolmarm thing of like, I'm not even going to say anything harsh and yet YOU WILL FEEL SO SMALL AND DISAPPOINTING.)

- Awwwwwww you guys, the thread for me is so lovely I can't even read it properly. I skimread and then I get embarrassed and have to go away. But it's so sweet. And I just love how much this has taken off, it says something really beautiful about fandom that people are so enthusiastic about leaving each other love.

- Speaking of love! ONLY THREE DAYS LEFT FOR LEAVING PROMPTS AT [livejournal.com profile] ron_draco_fest. I love Ron/Draco to PIECES and I'm really hoping for lots of juicy prompts to agonise over when I sign up :D Must leave some of my own, too!

Everyone seems to be feeling pretty bruised by 2016; I know I am. Fighting is important, but love is part of the revolution.

The way this works:

- Leave a comment with someone's username (and perhaps a bit of love for them) to start a thread. Then people can reply to that comment with more love for that person. Try scrolling through comments (or hitting CTRL+F to search for a specific username) to find more brilliant people to leave love for!

- This is being run on both LJ and DW. I will do my best to keep up an alphabetical list of the threads so far, so there's not too much duplication, but duplication across LJ and DW is fine.

- Anon is encouraged and preferred, but signed-in is fine too. If nothing else, signing in and out without an add-on bar is just deeply annoying :)

- Putting yourself up for a thread is ENCOURAGED.

- You don't have to say anything super complex or deep or meaningful. A ♥ is just as happy-making!

- try to check if you're replying to the post or a comment - there are some stray comments which is always sad!

- Have fun!

So I’ve been very underemployed/functionally unemployed since the end of August, and am thus too skint to be sending a lot of international post. But as Christmas cards from my flist begin to arrive I’ve been both THRILLED and also going in this cycle of ‘I LOVE sending post and am also feeling rather guilty… but so skint… but I love sending… argh!!!’

BUT I will be full-time employed in January, right, and also in beautiful Sardinia which is a popular tourist destination. SO.

Please leave your address here (with whatever name you’d prefer I use) - all comments are screened, natch, or you can private-message me - and I will send you a postcard! Not quite as festive as Amnesty’s Season’s Greetings cards, perhaps, but probably very pretty :D

EVERYONE IS WELCOME, including flisters who don’t send cards and those who are super-new!

So, I was meant to go to the birthday party of one of my best friends tonight, and then all the trains were cancelled. I am not feeling terribly happy. And this is a depressing time of year for many of us in the northern hemisphere (and many in the southern one, too - fuck forest fires). Solution? Obvious.

we love you yeah yeah yeah

OH MY GOD. Guys, I am so INCREDIBLY sorry for this. Especially [personal profile] silvernatasha - you wrote me a wonderful gift for Kinky Kristmas! And my response sucked balls! Or something way less pleasant than balls!

So, when I do a post with a lot of coding I post it on private first so I can check how it cross-posts and stuff. And I posted this almost a month ago… and never took it off private. I guess in the Christmas whirl, and the fact that it was just thanks and a rec, the lack of comments didn’t make an impression.


So extra thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sassy_cissa - your card is insanely cute and I love that you commissioned a fanartist for Christmas cards AND OMG DRACO STOLE HARRY’S GLASSES AND HE HAS THEM ON HIS HEAD WHILE THEY KISS I’M DYING - but also remembering to thank you for your card is how I discovered the fail.


SQUEEEEEE. OMG you guys, my desk looks AWESOME. Why? Because I am covering its top shelf thingy with cards from all of YOU. )AND THEN.

GUYS IT IS THE FIC I HAVE BEEN CRAVING ALL YEAR, NO LIE. It is Pansy getting punished for being a bitch and nipple play and Daphne as the most perfect, teasing domme. I love the characterisation of Pansy - bitchy and attacking other women on their appearance, it's so canon and so nasty. And Daphne smiling and kissing her cheek, just part of her crew of ladies who lunch, and then OH SNAP PRO-DOMME DAPHNE KNOWS ALL YOUR SECRETS AND YOU ARE GONNA PAY. The spanking is gorgeous and there are some genius little magical details I won’t spoil. AND OMG PANSY LIES TO GET CROPPED MORE AND THERE IS SCORCHING NIPPLE PLAY AND THE END IS TANTALISING PERFECTION. Go and read it right now!

[personal profile] noeon posted about some things she's grateful for, things she wouldn't have had without fandom. And I commented there, but I'd like to post about it myself. Because really, there's so much, more than I can encompass here.

Without fandom, I would never have: )

Today is my 23rd birthday. Since I live in Ho Chi Minh City, and am over 6000 miles from my wonderful friends, I am having an online celebration. It isn’t really going to close - belated comments etc will be greeted with joy! - but basically it starts now and will probably go on for around 36 hours (ie, from midnight on the 21st til when the 21st ends in America, since I have lots of flisters and one Very Important Pervert there.)

So I’m thinking gifs, and recs threads, and commentfic. A thread for Truth or Dare. And etc.

The idea here is that you guys can come in and request recs of your own if you like, and also leave prompts for commentfic. I’ll be leaving a few prompts myself, but I would also like to write stuff for other people!

I know I have a bunch of new friends, and you are all totally welcome to come and play! Recs and commentfics and requests need not be limited to my fandoms or pairings. There will be a thread for questions and ideas at the top.

Initial meme, guys: tell me 1 thing you’ve done in the last week, 1 kink you never thought you’d be into (in either RL or fiction), and 1 thing you like about the place you live. Also 1 link to a cool thing (fic/art/article/whatevs) if you’re up for it. This strikes me as fun and is a sneaky way to get to know my new flisters!

Welcome to my birthday party. It will not be safe for work.

I keep meaning to say: thank you [profile] tuwahine, [personal profile] hpstrangelove, [personal profile] lilyginny27, [personal profile] icicle33, [personal profile] olimakiella, and Anonymous for my gingerbread men! And to [personal profile] frayach for my noisemaker and [profile] jacobnorman for my silver ornament! Every one of you lights up my flist and my life on a regular basis. (At least, if I count Anonymous as a collective also responsible for lovely comments on my fic.)

While we’re on the subject of things I should’ve done ages ago:

GO AND SIGN UP. There’s still plenty of time! Ron/Draco for all!

My submission’s going pretty well, I think...

lokifan: Angel's Gunn and Anne hugging (Gunn/Anne: hug)
This has been a fantastic, busy week. First was the Hallowe’en Weekend, known in infamy and awesome as ever. It was small this year - seven people plus a fleeting visit from the glorious [personal profile] silvernatasha - but as much fun as ever. Lots of communal time, and lots of chatting with people who I usually am sad not to have spent more time with, and interesting new board games made a million times more fun by the players, and lots of delicious food. Plus [personal profile] wickedblonde in a corset, [personal profile] morettaallstar bringing fandom awesome and undergrad gossip from our uni, and [profile] cthonya doing a reading of this excellent Narcissa-convinces-Lucius-to-send-Draco-to-Hogwarts fic.


Plus we did a Sculpture Trail in the local woods, which involved exploring and looking for these cool artworks that told the Pendle Witches tale. And there was a lucky dip, and I am now the proud owner of orange socks with bats on them. FTW!

Next year looks like it’s going to be paroxysms of delight; I am left to try to justify a return flight from Ho Chi Minh City to London...

So I was just doing washing up and I had this fantasy.

(Kye shares his fantasies about being married to J Michael Tatum on LJ, I am only following his lead.)

In the fantasy, I was washing up, and then Tatum came up behind me and put his hands on my hips. He nuzzled my neck in this sort of bitey way.

“Tatum, don’t!” I said. “Kye will be over soon!”

“He’s just my husband. You’re my FAVOURITE slut.”

Weekend of AWESOME

Wednesday, 4 April 2012 12:33 pm
lokifan: Martha and Donna looking excited, text "squee!" (Squee! companions)
I am a bit ill and I have to clean the fridge myself and my BEDROOM DOOR IS BROKEN AND THE LANDLORD IS BEING A WANKER ABOUT IT. But none of that is the point of this post! Because I had an awesome long-weekend. let me tell you all about it. )
lokifan: Comic!Loki flailing, text "OMG!" (Loki: OMG)
I am not properly back from hiatus - the course finished on Friday, but there is lots of RL STUFF going on! But I do have time to do a belated thank-you post, for all my birthday goodies.

I got really adorable vgifts: a nommable chocolate torte from [personal profile] winter_june, heart balloons from [personal profile] kitty_fic, a quill and ink from [profile] austen_kiss, party hats from [profile] hull1984, and balloons from [personal profile] nenne. Thank you all so much! The birthday message from [profile] drarryxlover was also very much appreciated :) Oh, and the very sweet birthday posts from [personal profile] murielle, [personal profile] shapinglight, and [personal profile] alisanne were lovely.

AND. I got BIRTHDAY FIC. It was very exciting!! [profile] babydracky, sweet as ever, posted an angsty H/D ficlet with a Thor-n-Loki bday banner at the top, because she wins at ALL the fandoms. And at being adorable. AND [profile] secretlypadfoot, who apparently has some crazy secret agenda to give me a heart attack, I don’t even know, posted SURPRISE NEVILLE/DRACO SPANKING FIC. LIKE A BOSS. DRACO YELLS FOR NEVILLE TO STOP AND THEN FOLLOWS HIM IN A HALF-BUTTONED SHIRT LIKE ‘WHY’D YOU STOP?’ AND NEVILLE IS ALL GENTLE BUT DOMLY AND GAGS HIM WITH A SLYTHERIN TIE. NO I CANNOT TURN OFF THE CAPSLOCK RIGHT NOW.

In the more RL-ish realm, I also got these GORGEOUS pinky-purpley hand-knit gloves from [personal profile] mokatiki and my very own copy of How I Live Now from [profile] dora_the_nymph. SO PLEASED. And [personal profile] son_of_darkness gave me what we’ve christened the Slut Shoes. They are bright red with six-inch heels. He’s got a pair that’s a bit bigger, and neither of us can walk in them for very long. But that doesn’t matter much, since walking is manifestly not the activity the Slut Shoes are meant for :)

Despite the crazy busy and stress of the actual day, I’ve had a lovely birthday all told and I haven’t even made my parents take me for Indian food. Thank you so so much darlings; you make my life and my birthdays so much brighter. ♥ ♥ ♥
