Hello! Firstly, I'd like to thank you from the depths of my heart for writing for me, and apologize preemptively for any trouble you may have with whichever request of mine you are matched with. Feel free to poke around on my journal here - there's a rec post that's stickied at the top and a fandom: fanfiction tag that has some public posts that may be of help - and also at [livejournal.com profile] ficviendha if for some reason you want to know what my own writing looks like (perhaps that says something about me?).

And might as well start this off with the same disclaimer from last year: "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."

Still true. So relax! Have some fun. If you like what you write for me, in all probability I'll like it too.

Generally speaking, I tend to prefer gen fic to romance unless otherwise specified. I like angst and h/c but I also like fluffy things.

more specifically, then! Lymond Chronicles, Rai Kirah, Belgariad/Malloreon, The Silmarillion )

Once again, thank you, and happy writing!

I don't usually look very actively for fanvids, but every so often they turn up and I like them. A lot. All may do contain spoilers, so be warned for that. May be updated as I find more/actually start looking.

Avatar: the Last Airbender
Paper Planes - MIA by thedeadparrot (DW). Toph! The sync is awesome, and while I'd never have thought of this song for Toph it actually works pretty well.


Code Geass
Life's Gonna Suck - Denis Leary by CaramellNeko. Just...ridiculous. I loled.

Viva La Vida - Coldplay by rinir10010. Okay, I imagine it's the most overly fanvidded song ever, but I like this one! And it fits so many characters very nicely. And this one is well put together, I think; I like the way it was executed.

You Know My Name - Chris Cornell by Kagatoamv. Again, well put together, with a different tone.


Death Note
Thnks fr th Mmrs - Fall Out Boy by 3lgoonishive. Intense!!! A little more frenetic in terms of cutting than perhaps I would prefer, but it fits both song and series, so it works. Oh, it works.


Doctor Who
I Can't Decide - Scissor Sisters by agentthreeseven. The Master and this song may have been one of my favorite parts of the end of Series Three. And someone did me a service of setting all the best Master scenes to this song. Therefore.

Anyone on my flist have any recommendations?
...sort of. First of all, I finally went through and did a grand total stats toll of my deathfic. For the purposes of this count, Deathfic is defined as fic focused around or on the death of one or more major characters.

Total: 23
A Song of Ice and Fire: 6
Caliban Leandros: 1
Doctrine of Labyrinths: 2
The Silmarillion: 14

I would just like you to look at those numbers for a moment. Just. Yes, look.

Moving right along.


So, because of that book of disappointing short stories, I got thinking about short stories I do like, and I decided that I wanted to have a collection of them somewhere. You know, like a recommendation post. And the more I thought about it the more I liked the sheer organization of this idea. And I could even give people the books I have them in! Or a link to them if they can be found online!

...so yeah, that's what this is. Recommendations, including a little blurb about what I loved. Though the links and book citations so to speak will have to wait a little. I have AP Government homework to do, whoooops.

ophelia of the spirits has a new album, also. this makes me happy. )

That's what I've got, for now. Of I go to read for three classes, and wonder why I have never listened to much 30 Seconds to Mars before now. *is so secretly an emo kid it disgusts her sometimes*

And goodnight. Much love to you all. I'm sure there is something I'm forgetting to do.

(Probably babble about elves. I haven't done that in a while. Some of you are probably grateful for this.)

Also, Haiti fic. Tomorrow, you slacking little bitch.
these are the scenes from my own fic that I would illustrate. )

And then there are the fics I've written because of other people's illustrations but we're not going into that. And the ones for Yuletide that will be here after the reveal.
First things first, folks: I'm so grateful for all of you. You're all on my flist for a reason, and I love reading journals for a reason, and some of you I would have been too shy ever to ask but through mutual friends or other things - I'm glad you're all here, is the bottom line, and I hope you're doing fantastically. I'm just feeling squishy and full of love today. &hearts &hearts

So I've been putting off posting this forever because I am lazy. Let's make it a Christmas present. Ahead of time, folks, this post is loaded with SILMARILLION and A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE and DORK. Also, if you have ever wondered why sometimes the folder name is different than the fanmix name, it is because I chance these damn titles about six times. I do this with everything. For example, "The Lost Son" on my fic journal is known as the (better) "The Damned" on FFN. I'm just too lazy to change all the chapters already on my journal, lol.

ALSO, one more reason to love the Silmarillion: it is a great fan of the words "great" and "doom" and when combined these words create a most excellent phrasething. Especially doom. DOOOOOM.

Medium: Book
Fandom: Silmarillion
Title: No Second Chance
Subject: One guess. :D But it really works for the arc of most of it from the Flight of the Noldor onwards.
Notes: I really, really like this. And coming up soon will be a compilation of all my truly favorite Feanorian (DEFINITIVE) fanmix songs, probably towards the end of the year. \o/

no black no white no source of light )

Things I'm excited about this Christmas, on that note: GAME OF THRONES CARDS FUCK YES, CHRISTMAS CTHULHU FUCK YES, LE CHEVALIER D'EON/PLANET EARTH/LIFE AFTER PEOPLE FUUUUCK YESSSSS. Not many books, though, clearly I'll just have to wait for my wallet to heal and head to the bookstore on my own.

aaaaand more art recommendations? :D )

I wanna be the very best! like no one ever was! OR the most epic crossover icons ever )

Found this and dlkf it's true at least for me. First time I cried. Ever. In these books, I mean, otherwise I am a freaking leaky faucet. ALSO hey hey bitches.



WORD.

And lastly, THIS FREAKING CRACKS ME UP mostly because in RP land interactions between Daeron and Feanorians end in near death. Not hugs. Also I just. Can't see this going well? Maybe it's just me. Horz.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD LIFE!


P.P.S: When Yuletide archive loads I will have recs for yinsall. NOW TO FINISH THOSE LATE CHRISTMAS PRESENTS *scampers*

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
