First things first, HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] tomboy_typist! Much love and sweetness to you, and by god, expect some KT/ASOIAF fic coming over your way soon.

You know it will inevitably involve Sandor/Phedre, I cannot lie. &hearts &hearts &hearts

I amuse myself too much sometimes. I need to update that more often. Though some of the entries are definitely funnier than others.

I just couldn't resist. In other news, Naomi Novik appears to have written a crossover in which Jaime Lannister fights Temeraire the dragon, and it is the best thing ever. No, seriously. I think I need to start watching her journal, just because. ---omg. See for yourself, by all means AND THEN GO VOTE TEMERAIRE seriously folks, Jaime's cool and all, but he ain't got nothing on the dragon.

There is American Idol. And Cthulhu. And just guys, I cannot say. It is full of perfect.

Less full of perfect is my mood, which still sucks, and the fact that votes on Fandom Madness have been steadily declining. :( I made the difficult decision to close the last poll and move to the next round, but I want to whine terribly. There aren't even that many votes anymore! It's really fun at least for me! Campaign in the comments!

/done.

Ties were between Aredhel and Maglor and Earendil and Maeglin; Aredhel and Maeglin both continued. Sandor got knocked out by Tywin, which is the only result I'm saddened by this time. But not surprised. XD Tywin is a hardass.

Finally, I would like to point out that more of the epic AU is up on my fic journal, and that I may have 14 pages of Curufin FST combined with fic, and that I'm incredibly excited about my Silmarillion adaptation of "East of the Sun and West of the Moon" but shhh. I still have a lot to do.

A lot to do here meaning nothing productive, pfffft.

Next round I'm totally going to start writing drabbles. >>;; I will not be able to help it at that point.

ETA: ...there is a health care debate going on on my flist. I'm going to pretend I didn't see it and I'm definitely not clicking on the cut.

I'd rather no one started in here, either. I just don't have the energy.
So I wrote a metric fuckton of fic this year.

My actual assignment was Memorial, written for [livejournal.com profile] not_from_stars for Black Jewels Trilogy, about the friendship between Karla, Gabrielle, and Jaenelle, and the things they build as a trio. It was...a challenge, I confess, but there are things I really like about how it turned out.

And then there's all my treats.

if you were curious which were mine. )

AND SO THIS IS YULETIDE AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE and all that, I'll put these up on my fic journal uhhh later. Any concrit or comments or thoughts or "Lise, you're nuts" is welcome to go here as well. Thank you to my writer, Ariana, thank you to my betas, and thank you to the prompters who made me go absolutely nuts.

NOW FOR NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS TIME. (and replies to comments.)

ETA: ...I just discovered "The Inappropriate Elf Challenge" which, while it could be porn, is actually, 'crossover with a fandom that should never have Elves.' And I'm taking this as a challenge. SO FOLKS what fandoms should never be crossed over with The Silmarillion/Tolkien's Elves? *shot*
Silmarillion
Her Eyes - Future!fic, in which Elves are released from Mandos. Everything about this I love. There are perfect little details - Caranthir likes the modern arms trade, Celegorm makes a brief appearance as his annoyed and slightly disappointed self, and Aegnor and Finrod are spot on and it's just - adorable all over and the ending leaves it full of possibilities. I think I ship this now, just for this one fic.
Meldor - Maedhros/Fingon. The writing is lovely, it's set up as a recovery fic after Thangorodrim - the first piece describing Maedhros' pain is gorgeous and the rest of it lives up to that. There is such a sense of brothers-in-arms-but-more that characterizes this pairing, in my head, and the way Fingon shepherds Maedhros along and at the same time he's so determined to recover and is worried and focused as always - in capitalism!AU, Maedhros would be a workaholic, I suspect. Am I right or am I right?

Temeraire
Gemology - Emily Roland fic, in which she is a perfect child - curious, intelligent, asking too many questions. There is just such adorable and authentic character in this, and again, the details as when Emily considers whether she might be half-dragon...I loved it.
wisdom to the mighty, honor to the brave - I don't have much coherent to say here but pretty pretty pretty. It's set after Victory of Eagles and is just a fantastic medley of interactions between Tharkay (who is priceless), Granby (who is adorable), Laurence, and Riley, and while my attention span doesn't often hold for fic of long lengths, this filled in the gaps of things I needed to see nicely.

Doctrine of Labyrinths
Medicine for the soul - Felix and Mildmay, genfic after Corambis AND I WANT MOORREEE this has been the first fic in a while, completed, that I have sincerely wanted to see more of because what was there just didn't give me enough. I wanted! More of it! And that's a good feeling.

A Song of Ice and Fire
Snow and Stark - My actual fic that I received! It has Jon and Robb being close and adorable and brotherly, and I don't know how this person knew all my pseudocanon but they did, somehow. They steal a pie! And are competitive and adorable! Robb is noble and a little bit dense! I loooffff it.

Guesses on which fics I wrote are/are not allowed, lololol. Still working my way through, and of course there's all of Yuletide Madness yet to see...

I have so many things I want to write I can't decide what to do first! This is a novel problem.

Dear Yuletide Goat!

Glad to hear you are here!~ First and foremost, I am fairly easy to please. I like surprises, I like a lot of characters, I like a wide range of topics, so really, if you're stuck banging your head against the wall, run with what you want to do and if you enjoy it I probably will too - I mean, so long as it is not something involving tentacle rape, anything involving intense detail of vomit or anything involving eye maiming which are really my only three squicks.

No, I'm serious.

(Well, I mean, other than the obvious stuff like yayhomophobia or yayracism! but I'd hope that goes without saying. Other things, though - fandom has killed my sense of squick.)

and now I get to ramble about what I like? OH BOY! )

Have fun with it! I hope you enjoy whatever you end up doing and that your Yuletide present(s) is as fantastic as I'm certain mine will be! &hearts &hearts &hearts
I'm not sure what I'm dressed as. I'll be sure to take pictures, though. Somehow. Eventually. XD Really I would like to put on some makeup but I am just too lazy.

In other news, though, I have a lot of fic ideas, and I want someone other than me to write them. XD I know that sounds awful, perhaps, but really - what I used to do was to just cling to ideas and keep them secret and hoard them so no one could write them but ME and - well, I'm glad I've gotten over that. So I suppose this can be considered just a prompt post? Things are under the cut and if anyone is interested they are welcome.

Debating about a fic I'm writing and whether or not I want to post it on FFN. Scary Russians, guys! I'm scared of the Russians D: MORE IMPORTANTLY I want to do this meme again, people are all loud in my head and it might be entertaining? Or something. /whores self out

SO YEAH ask any of my puppets a question and they will answer you. IC. More or less. Crack will probably happen. It might be amusing. I swear. XD

DONE NOW I go away other than the fact that it makes me :( that Yuletide has gotten drama!!!! lately, and I wish I were brave enough to watch scary movies. I'll probably just spend all of tomorrow reading the summaries or going on VH1 to watch 100 scariest movie moments or something. XD We'll see if I can get a life before this concert that I am psyched for, by the way.

I'll have something worthwhile to say in a little bit, promise.

so about those prompts... )

Also to do! More top fives argh, Temrerfic, Robbkidlets, finish seven sins fic.

And AH YES NaNo starts in two days, I don't filter posts in general, but I do filter all writing I may post - anyone interested in seeing what I may post over the month, if you would like to be added to my writing filter comment here?

...this song makes me want to cry, even when I'm in a good mood. :(
