Hiya! Wow, it’s been so long - not counting the odd post about horrifying current events, at least. I can’t remember the last time I was quiet for so long. (Pause for people who know me IRL to be like, ‘we can’t either. We were enjoying it…’) Things are pretty good, though - a bit skint but not too bad, and there’s been lots of gorgeous autumn weather. Cool weather and turning leaves and bright blue skies <333

I did SO MANY THINGS in August, and then basically spent September recovering. August was working a lot of twelve-hour days (it’s the busy season), going away for two long weekends, and seeing twelve different flats before I found this one. Plus actually moving!

stuff about moving & the new place )

Meme time, I think; it’d be nice to chat properly.

Give me one or more characters, and I'll tell you:

First impression
Impression now
Favorite moment
Ship them with
Idea for a story
Unpopular opinion
Favorite relationship
BROTP
NOTP
Favorite headcanon

Remember, YOU'RE TOTALLY ALLOWED TO DISAGREE WITH MY OPINIONS IN PUBLIC. Just be prepared for me to be all 'no, because...' but none of that means I like you any less :)

Fandoms: Potter, Buffy/Angel, MCU (including TV except for Agents of Shield), Steven Universe, Supergirl/Flash/Arrow, Glee, Dark Angel, AtLA/Korra, Orphan Black, Doctor Who, White Collar, Black Butler, #6, Pretty Little Liars. Also Diana Wynne Jones books. IDK I'm pretty flexible :D

Orrrr if that all seems too much like hard work, we can turn to my favourite old stand-by: you ask me a question, and I'll answer and also ask you a question that's somehow related to yours.

My LJ icons package is about to expire ;_; I have almost 300 icons over there but I’m not giving them any more money, so very soon they’ll mostly go. (The paid account itself doesn’t expire til August, and then I’m back down to the basics.) On the other hand, I’m in the middle of uploading a bunch more Dreamwidth icons, now my premium account’s got me up to 260. I have put quite a bit of energy into curating my icon collection, guys, you don’t even know.

So this seems like the perfect moment to do a userpics meme. Basically, pick 3 userpics (or more) from here or here, and I’ll tell you something about why I have it. (You can post the icons in the comment box or give me the keywords I chose, e.g. ‘Thor: space princess’.) If you include the word CONVERSE in your comment, I’ll pick 3 of yours to ask about.

Real post coming soon.

Episodes meme

I've been doing absolutely nothing productive in the last two weeks, out of a combination of bad sleep, lots of work, seeing friends and the Sims 3. (I only install the Sims when I'm giving myself permission to not be very productive; I hadn't written anything for a week or two beforehand anyway.) I miss you guys and don't have many plans this weekend. Let's do a meme.

Relevant fandoms: Buffy, Angel, Orphan Black, Steven Universe, Jessica Jones, Agent Carter, Dark Angel, Korra, Last Airbender, Supergirl, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, No 6, Black Butler, Pretty Little Liars, Being Human, White Collar. I'll give Luke Cage, Glee or Dollhouse a go if you like, too.

Gacked from EVERYONE:

Name an episode (or episodes, as many as you like) from one of the following shows [or perhaps books from series?] and I will tell you the following about it.

What I like about it.

What I don't like about it.

Favorite line.

Best performance.

A scene/idea from it that's particularly interesting to me.

Something I would have changed to make the episode better.

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

LOVE MEME TIME!

love meme banner by capitu.jpg

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!

You can pimp using the banner by posting this:



Or a giant cat type banner:

Yay, I’ve been offered a job for the summer! Full-time hours are pretty short so the money ends up not being amazing, which is unfortunate cos I have a LOT of expenses about to hit. But it’s at a really good school, so I’m waiting to see if I get a response from the very-well-paying school I taught at last summer but if I do take it I’ll be happy with it for sure.

ANYWAY. [profile] amorette tagged me for this meme -- thanks babes; I’m not going to tag anyone cos the meme seems to be going round, so I assume people have done it if they want to :D

I’m gonna do it for a bunch of the fandoms I’m interested in/ that encourage passionate shipping opinions

I SHIP....

DC TV universe )

Marvel TV & filmverse )

Glee )

Buffy and Angel )

Guess what happened on Thursday? I nearly got brained by random heavy objects! I was teaching in a classroom that has a standard whiteboard, with a big monitor above it. Behind the monitor are tucked two speakers. I was writing on the whiteboard about articles when BAM! The speakers crashed down. I jumped backwards and didn’t get hit purely by luck. The bracket holding things up suddenly went, so the monitor was hanging drunkenly off the wall and the speakers had hit with a crash heard in all the surrounding classrooms.

EEK.

Everyone was unhurt, but EEK.

Anyway. Am apparently incapable of a substantive post so here are two things I got tagged for on Tumblr approximately an ice age ago. I’m tagging [personal profile] kikimay, [profile] amorette, [personal profile] eidheann_writes, [personal profile] birdsofshore and [personal profile] isinuyasha. Pick one or both :)

I miss you guys, having been absent - let's do a meme to catch up :) Give me a letter and I'll answer the question; also, if you put the word CONVERSE into your comment, I'll ask you one too.

Stolen from - well, everyone, basically - here’s the username music meme! This has ended up way more dominated by guitar music than I expected, actually, I always forget how much I actually love indie rock.

L – Lover I Don’t Have To Love by Bright Eyes
O – Odds Are by the Barenaked Ladies. I would legit love this as a first-dance song at my wedding!
K -- Kiss You Off by the Scissor Sisters
I – I Knew Prufrock Before He Got Famous by Frank Turner; I feel like such a London scene kid for how much I love this but I dooooo.
F -- The Future Freaks Me Out by Motion City Soundtrack. The references are slightly dated but the truth, it burns.
A – Anyway You Choose To Give It by the Black Ghosts. In my head this is a bit of a sub song :)
N – Nancy Boy by Placebo ♥

lokifan: black Converse against a black background (Default)
I've had an obnoxious, stressful week. Work stuff was kind of difficult, my washing machine is broken, some physical pain, and also I have three new roommates. Two of them don't really like me and I don't really like them, and the other has a dog. No one warned me a dog was moving in; I'm mildly allergic and it howls sometimes and growled at me the other day. I don't hate dogs but like. :S

Making friends has sort of stalled, particularly since the teacher I was living with, becoming good friends with, and doing some exploring of Cagliari with decided she didn't like the job and moved back home.

Also funeral (well, celebration of life, but) of BFF's dad is tomorrow and I will be here, not celebrating his life or supporting friends who will have a very difficult day.

I don't need sympathy comments or anything, life is still pretty good! But still, this week needs as much delicious Italian pizza and meme-y chatting with you guys as possible to repair.

Leave me comments about:

fuck, marry, kill

ask my top 3 of anything

make me choose between two things

send me celebrities for hot or not

would I ship _______ with _______ ?

headcanons

who you ship me with

tell me stories about you or your day

ask me for advice

ask me questions about things you want to know

tell me your current 3 favourite ships

tell me/ask about the best 3 fanworks you've seen recently

ask me about 3 of my icons (here)

literally whatever you want!

WIP meme

lokifan: Close-up of Grell grinning over his glasses (Grell: smile)
I got tagged in the WIP meme by [livejournal.com profile] this_girl_is about a million years ago only I didn’t notice because of the lack of wifi thing.

The rules are as follows: go to page 7 of a WIP, skip to the 7th line, share 7 sentences, and tag 7 more writers to continue the challenge.

Oh my God. This is really embarrassing.

I got tagged twice in the I Would Go Down With This Ship meme, so I’m choosing to do ten ships :D I’m such a multishipper that this was really hard!!! There are definitely ships I feel passionately about that I didn’t put on here because I enjoy/am fascinated by other ships that include those characters. (Buffy/Faith, Harry/Draco, Natasha/Steve, and Thor/Loki in particular.)

I would go down with these ships )

I’ve got some new friends so I thought I’d do this getting-to-know-you type meme! I will try to control its size but I’m doing a multi-fandom version of it.

Otherwise, my introductory post: I’m twenty-five, a woman, bi, and from London/the Home Counties. I teach English as a foreign language. I like reading and dancing and theatre and sparkles. I’m kinky IRL but not in a 24/7 kind of way. I’ve been in fandom almost ten years; I discovered it through Potter and HP is still my biggest fandom, though Buffy was much more my teenage obsession. I’m currently into superheroes, especially Marvel, and I love Gothic stories about teenage girls so Pretty Little Liars rocks my world. (Though not, shall we say, unproblematically.) I did English Lit at uni and I loooove literary analysis and meta.

Most of my friends are people I met through fandom (or mutual fandomy friends), which makes me very lucky and also changes my relationship with fandom, though I’m not quite sure how.

I’m very much the middle-class bohemian and lefty queer feminist. I don’t knit and I’m not a vegetarian but it’s really only a matter of time :)

Enemy ships tend to be my favourites, especially if the characters are literary parallels and especially especially if they used to be friends and/or have some kind of special connection and/or know each other well. Buffy/Faith, Harry/Draco, Ron/Draco, Angel/Spike, etc etc. I also tend to have a weakness for vulnerable, angry brunettes.

I write a lot of kinky porn but not solely that, and I read a lot outside that genre.

Intro fandom meme )
lokifan: black Converse against a black background (In the beginning was Douglas Adams)
I am stressing the fuck out. I have to have moved out of my place by noon on Sunday and I haven't found a new place to live. I don't have a job, I just have four different very part-time jobs which don't pay my rent. My Kindle broke today.

I will hopefully have a job very soon, I signed on with a recruitment agency on Wednesday, and I've organised for some of my stuff to go into storage so I don't have to pay for a white van man when I move. My mum will help me move back home (uggggggh) tomorrow, or possibly she won't if I can find somewhere nearby to live by then. I just. Aaaaaaaaah

Adulthood is a scary horse, you guys.


SO EVERYTHING IS EXTREMELY UNSETTLED. I have no idea where I'll be working or living in a week. But I am sort of handling it! I don't know! Agh! Plus money worries are the worst and this Spanish dude I teach two evenings a week at his swank London Bridge office is away for at least a fortnight. Which is kind of a blessing because I can pack and freak out tonight instead of teaching but still. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

Let's do a meme. One that I can check back in on every so often and requires very little brainpower, and also lets me catch up with you guys. How about the Fandom Tennis Meme?

You leave me a question and I will answer and ask you a question thematically related to yours, and then we continue until we get bored. Fandom or RL, pick your poison.

lokifan: Speech bubble saying "really, that girl is such a deviant." (Deviant)
I wasn’t online on Friday, being at work, then the pub, then asleep. BUT THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE APPRECIATION ♥ I APPRECIATE READERS AND RECCERS AND OTHER WRITERS TOO. [livejournal.com profile] capitu and [livejournal.com profile] my_thestral, you made my day!

In other forms of catching-up, I did the trope meme (how could I not?) and [livejournal.com profile] notearchiver’s kink meme as well. The kink meme was 10000% harder.

For both of them I noticed the difficulty in navigating apathy versus hate, and more importantly - especially with the kink meme - ‘things I like but don’t love’ vs ‘things I like significantly less, or even usually dislike, but I always remember that one fic that made them awesome’. (Eg wax play vs CBT.) Plus, as the kink meme went on I found myself occasionally going for ‘what I like IRL’ vs what I like to read in fanfic!

AND there was stuff like - men crossdressing does nothing for me, unless it’s used for humiliation (and even then it needs to work in a specific way) or really works the characters’ being into it. Women crossdressing/wearing traditionally male stuff though, that melts my brain. I like smut with fat characters, especially art, but ‘fat admiration’ as a kink isn’t my thing, except loving descriptions of fat bodies kind of shades into that? IDK I AM EASILY CONFUSED.

It was strange giving hurt/comfort such a low score, but it's a narrative kink rather than a sexual one!

For all that, it came out really accurate I think. I managed to always choose one of the the two, even when it was between two massive squicks, which helped.

Anyway, here are my answers for the kink meme )

And the trope meme )
