So, last night I read this article speculating about what Nolan intends to do with his last Batman movie. (Link contains spoilers for previous Nolan Batverse movies, and speculation about the next one.)


Cut for potential spoilers and semi-coherent ranting about Batman. )

So I truly, dearly hope that TDKR takes the path aligned in the article. Both because the sheer meta of it makes me intensely happy, and because, on a perfectly shallow level? The possibility it suggests for John Blake is just YUM. :D

from [ profile] ilovetakahana:

1. Think of up to 20 ships you support. (Got 9. Close enough...?)
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
3. Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.
4. Fandom hints will be given if asked in the comments.

Some of these are obvious, some are a bit obscure, one or two may just be the way I see them and everyone else will go 'bzuh?'... )

My name is Dana, and I've been off Twitter for 3 days. And my productivity at work is showing for it - if fear is the mind killer, twitter is the time eater.

On the other hand, no words are happening as yet. Trying not to give myself a hard time about it, and hoping inclination to write comes back soon.

Got a new fandom LJ, to cross-post things from here - I'm [ profile] the_ragnarok_d if anyone wants to add me there. I'm probably going to remove most fannish people from the other LJ and put the RL updates there, so if anyone cares for those, lemme know and I'll keep you there.

Things I want to do, fandom-wise, when I get the spoons:
- A post about my competence fetish, aka why I like Petyr Baelish best of all the Song of Ice and Fire characters. (Recap: I have no idea, but I really do.)
- Post some fic ideas, and possibly pull a WIP-amnesty thing - I don't think I'll ever finish the owl!not-really-AU. Or do a list of all the sequels I want or wanted to write at some point. Because I am made of sequels.
- Go over ae_match and put together a proper reclist. Because.

- [personal profile] skellerbvvt has started an Animorphs/Inception crossover, and it's bound to be magnificent. Go on, read it; it got me to start re-reading The Host (again. sigh), so you know it's good. <3
- [personal profile] cobweb_diamond wrote ~2000 words of Doctor Who/Harry Potter crossover fic, featuring 8-year-old Harry Potter, the Doctor, and Amy & Rory Pond. Go tell her to write moar!

If I wrote a story what would you be looking for in it?

- Yesterday: Went to a GoT-themed dinner-party to celebrate study-buddy's birthday. His GF went all out: like 5 different courses, plus side-dishes, plus ~decorations on the theme. And it was all delicious. I know the awesomest people.

- Today: Went to a second-hand sale and got an awesome new dress. Also a shirt, and also a purse for the lizard-in-law. Then got home and rushed to ready things for dinner.

- My new therapist appears promising. Meanwhile, trying not to tie myself in knots over Stuff. Contemplating making a post with useful/interesting links about depression, just in case anyone would like that.

- Horrible idea for a fic that will probably go nowhere: GoT, pairing may be a spoiler for 5th book. also, TRIGGER WARNING for everything horrible )

- Also, Vimes/Vetinary. I have issues with that pairing (mostly summed by wailing BUT SYBIL, because I love her so), but if there was ever a pairing that called for g-rated kink, this is it. Especially if that kink is service. And even more especially if the way Vetinary tries to throw honors at Vimes at the end of each book is a weird kind of platonic edging. (yeah I don't know. just. my brain. /o\)
Also, Sybil could totally rock a non-monogamous arrangement. It's Sam that would be hard to budge. /opinion

- Got this from [personal profile] unvarnishedtale: Book-scented perfume. I've been saying for a while this should exist. And it does! \o/

- [ profile] inception_crit is a new (to me, at least) community where authors can post their stuff to get constructive criticism. I've posted a fic - need to reply to the lovely crit note I got and do some crit of my own. Hopefully tomorrow.

Three recs, two fairly recent ae_match stuff and one long overdue:

- Don’t Call Me Cottontail by [personal profile] unvarnishedtale with art by [personal profile] red_rahl. In which Arthur and Eames turn into bunnies for a dream. Perfect fluff, pun definitely intended.
- 79) That cephalopod-launcher is insane; please bring a proper gun next time, by [personal profile] unvarnishedtale and [ profile] immoralcrow. Because. Dude. CEPHALOPOD LAUNCHER. Cracky and hilarious. Also don't miss comment art by [personal profile] red_rahl here, and the mini-sequel inspired by it here.
- This was written ages ago for a prompt I made, and I'm only now reccing it, WHERE DO I LEAD MY SHAME /o\: A fic in which the entire team cuddles, by [personal profile] aliassmith, and it is just as awesome and sweet and adorable as it sounds. SO LOVELY.

I think this was a meme, back in the days of yore.

Pokemon, QaF(us), The Sentinel, one-off fandoms, SGA, Inception. )

The only thing is that - can fandoms be husband material? Does it work like that? Aren't fandoms, by their very nature, transitory things? Can anyone say that they've been in fandom X for twenty years straight? Because I've always been the marrying sort, about pretty much everything. I want to stay forever in places where I'm happy.

Weekend was pretty awesome.

- Had my last exam on Friday - algebra, which went amazingly. Thanks go to my study buddy, who is excellent in many ways.

- Went to Tel Aviv for filksing on Friday night. Also awesome, saw a bunch of people I haven't seen in ages. Also got me thinking about parallels between my situation with the filk community and the fic community, which I may post about later under the CRAI MOAR filter. But altogether pretty awesome.

- Today, went to see HP7.2 with my darling, my mother, my brother and his wife. Lovely company, movie was cute even though I remembered NOTHING from the book. Conclusions: may contain spoilers. )
* But mostly, it got me craving something like the Hermione Granger series so bad. SO BAD. I love subversions, okay, IF SOMEONE DOESN'T WRITE YA FANTASY LIKE THAT I WILL. (for serious, I have one planned. It will probably suck, but I DON'T CARE STILL WANT TO WRITE IT.)

- Got back to BS and went straight to the housing protest. THE PPL WANT SOCIAL JUSTICE. So that was pretty win. (ETA: Also check out [personal profile] roga's picspam of the protest in Tel Aviv. The Beer Sheva demonstration is kinda small fry by comparison, but hey, at least we're moving, right?)

Now I am home and tests are done, I'm going to start working full-time until next semester starts - then hopefully my darling will get a Real Job so I can quit mine and go to being a full-time student.

I'm very conflicted about writing right now. Have a whole bunch of ideas, but uncertain where to start from. Probably I should finish my WIPs first, except that I'm kind of scared of going back to them because IT'S BEEN SO LONG. May write more about that later. BUT I AM OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS. SUGGESTIONS HELP.

So I came to a realization, which I posted on Twitter:

I feel much less need to look for dubcon/noncon now that I can find fics of masochism/humiliation/pretend rape in loving relationships. Because one thing I like better than noncon masochism/etc is masochism/etc with cuddles and schmoop on top.

And then I thought some recs were in order. Misc kink recs inside! )

More recs along these veins would be greatly appreciated. Some guidelines for Stuff I Like And Makes Me Happy: )

Went to see it last night, with my darling and some friends. AND LO IT WAS AWESOME.

My main impressions:

may include spoilers, yo. )

Also, I will reiterate that I promised [ profile] butterflythread that I will write her Charles/Erik porn if she picks a prompt from my kink_bingo card. I think vanilla kink might work actually - playing house! :D

Also I want to write Raven-centric fic - 5 times she masturbated wearing other people and once she did looking like herself? That could be kinda awesome I think.

from [personal profile] xenakis:

Post a comment, and I will reply with one or two reasons why I think you're great. In return, you have to post this same meme on your blog and comment for other people.

from [personal profile] anatsuno:

Pick a character I know and I'll tell you what kink(s) I'd pick for them.
the_ragnarok: (Default)
Signed on! Got a card! Here it is! (lol, can you tell I'm excited about this?)

pic and HTML )

I'm looking forward to this SO MUCH. I've actually spent like a couple of hours now reading resources - kink and disability, and also the kink wiki for several things that I didn't quite get but may well write.

Some ideas I've had - please do chip in if you like something or have a good idea for a stamp / line extra!

Kinky! Some dubconnish stuff inside. )

- ideas? suggestions? also - I kinda want to do an essay podfic, if you know something relevant to my card please point out and I will greatly appreciate!

My top-10 AO3 works by hit count:


So all my best rated things are inception (yeah, no surprise whatsoever there). 7 of 10 are HE!verse and 2 more are random pornlets. IS ANYONE AT ALL SURPRISED. :DDD

Also, interesting to note that number of hits does not correlate necessarily to number of kudos. (I tend to think of kudos as a greater measurement of fic quality.) For example, Put Out has four times the kudos of Hierarchy, and 90% the hits.
the_ragnarok: (Default)
Out of utter curiosity, if I had to write you one story, what would you request? (demand?) Or alternatively, what's something you always hoped I'd write but know is never going to happen?

So I got wanked on the anon!meme. I'm still kinda shaky all over it, but mostly not as upset as I thought I'd be. If anybody interested, it's here - don't go in there if you get upset about people saying unpleasant things about Ana, Aja or yours truly.

The thing is: I honestly didn't realize I offended anyone. I'm kinda thick and tactless sometimes, and this is something that's caused me a bunch of pain in my personal life. I didn't mean any harm, and if I caused any, then I'm sorry. Please, if I've hurt you, would you tell me so so I can apologize and maybe be better in the future?

Mind you, I have preferences, like everyone else. Nobody's obligated to share my preferences, like I'm not obligated to share theirs. The way I expressed this preference was offensive, and I'm truly sorry for that. I'll try to express my preferences in a more positive way in the future - flail about what is rather than whine about what isn't, write and comment and try to be a happier Dana in general rather than being a whinyface about everything. Nobody likes that.

Specifically, I do want to apologize for the way I worded things. I like it, in fic, when people discuss what they like and what they want, and I stand by my enjoyment of this, but the comments I made were offensive and stupid. It sounded like I think less of people who don't write or like that, or that the character on the bottom is emasculated - which isn't what I think, and I shouldn't have said it like that. So for that, I'm sorry.

That said, I'm me. I'm not very socially graceful, I like things that not everybody likes, I'm an attention whore when it comes to my writing and, all right, sometimes in general, though I don't think I'm a drama queen. I'm going to talk about the things I write on this journal and on my twitter because, hey, that's what they're for. I'm going to talk about myself because I like to, and I refuse to feel bad about that.

Meme from [personal profile] cesare: Post the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous.

5.doc - a 5-thing fic I wrote for just one scene, which I'll probably never finish because of racefail.
dark woods under the snow.odt - Crossover with Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell.
pornshop.odt - the sex-toy shop AU I'm writing on the kinkmeme.
sustenance.odt - the cronenberg!au [personal profile] anatsuno inspired me to write. Although now it's more like Warren Ellison's Stormwatch in tone than Cronenberg.
i gave nurit a flower.odt - the file for Tabula Rasa
roll the dice.odt - the RPG group AU I was talking to Nellie about.
[name redacted] - something I may want to do the anon thing with, for the kinkmeme.
kiss trick.odt - the sequel to Allowed.
smokelines.odt - the one with Arthur's horrible abusive childhood.
mal is a pirate queen.odt - and possibly also a shapeshifter. Arthur is The Chick.
the_ragnarok: (Default)
So, wrote some HE-verse, All Of Our Wealth, which is Cobb!POV and features Arthur as the Prettiest Bride Ever.

Also, meme!

Pick a paragraph (or any passage between ... let's say 200 and 600 words) from anything I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the characters' heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.
