It's because I can't write right now. I mean, other than this, obviously. I have a bunch of fics open and I'm staring at them and banging my head against the wall. This is acutely frustrating. COME ON, WORDS. COME BACK.

...also I'm having a really hard time coming up with 10 important/inspiring people on that meme, and I don't feel right listing Neil Gaiman ten times, possibly with Vienna Teng and Misha Collins there too.

So you know. I'll be back with that when I can think of ten people I really admire. (Is this a bad thing? ...probably.)

In the meantime! An old but classic meme that I always have fun with (and other people do too? Sometimes)

Pick one of the characters I RP and ask them any question you wish. The puppets will reply to these questions themselves, using their own journal and my generous typist services.

...you know, non-RP partners are welcome to ask questions too. In fact, I'd love it if you did.

I party hard, folks.

Not much to say about life at the moment...just working my way through school, still. I will be a youngster for two more days. This is really weird to me, I have to say.

...oh, and I disabled anonymous commenting, because I was getting really sick of spam telling me I need to enlarge my penis. So...sorry? I don't really get many anonymous commenters anyway, other than spammers.

Heyo folks!

I have a friend who's a musician who just recorded her first 'official' album, and it's on sale on iTunes! Her music is awesome and she's fabulously talented, so if you're interested at all encourage you to check it out and maybe buy some of her music.

Link to iTunes here.
Sample some here.

Sorry for the advertisement, but I think it's worth it.

It's ridiculously hot here.
...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.

My two cents for [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti. Fwiw. Responses to comments et al later, when I'm no longer...in a very, very strange headspace. I don't even know what's going on. I don't even know.

User Name: [livejournal.com profile] minviendha
Email address: elisemail9 at yahoo dot com
YM/AIM/Gtalk/ICQ (optional): liseinabox at AIM
You can see things I've created at: [livejournal.com profile] ficviendha for fic, this icon tag for icons.

I am offering: Beta reading, fic in a variety of fandoms, at least 1000 words, and possibly more if the prompt inspires. Icons, single frame with art or text of your choice.

Fandoms (if appropriate): Best with The Silmarillion, A Song of Ice and Fire, Doctrine of Labyrinths, and the Caliban Leandros Series. Can also write Harry Potter, Temeraire, The Gentleman Bastard Sequence, Wheel of Time, Lord of the Rings, and the Black Jewels Trilogy.

Additional Info (optional): I'm strongest with darkfic, but consider myself fairly versatile andalso enjoy writing fluffy things and future "speculative" fic. I enjoy crossovers, as long as I know one of the fandoms and at least have a little information in the other. AUs are great as well. I'll write anything from torture/porn on down. For icons, it's probably best to look at some of mine to see if the style works for you. Beta reading, I can do for grammar and structure, or, in fandoms I know, also for characterization and canon accuracy.

Starting Bid: $2 USD for any fic. $1 USD per icon. $2 USD per page for beta services.

Bid here.

ETA: ...also less seriously. This Week on Lise's Weird Reviews, I have now gotten this twice: LOVE STORY A girl asked a guy if he thought she was pretty and he said no. She asked him if he would want to be with her forever and he said no. She then asked him if she were to leave would he cry, and once again he replied with a
no. She had heard enough. As she walked away,tears streaming down her face the boy grabbed her arm and said" You're... See More... See More... See More ... See More not pretty you're beautiful. I don't want to be with you forever. I NEED to be with you forever. And I wouldn't cry if you walked away.I'd die" THE END Isn't that sweet? Tonight at midnight your true love will realize they like you. Something good will happen to you at 1:00-4:00pm tomorrow, it could be anywhere on IM or email, outside of school,anywhere! Get ready for the biggest shock of your life. If you break this chain letter you will be cursed with 10 relationship problems for the next ten years. If you post this to 15 pages in 15 minutes, you're safe.


Oh noes, guys, I'm going to have ten relationship problems.

I am obsessed with the song "Viva Discordia" by That Handsome Devil. It is so freaking catchy oh my god. Kind of ridiculous. Doing pretty well overall, really glad that this week is almost over. Mostly updates!post and some writing things. November is coming, did you bring your coat? More on NaNoWriMo as it gets closer. Though "closer" will be pretty soon. Also Wheel of Time in a few dayssss!

I'm a bit excitable now. ...and GOD THIS SONG. It's weird but I can't stop listening o.o

In other news, look what came in the mail today!

yes, more russian update, I'm sorry )

We'll see if more comes of it.

Secondly, I counted and have twenty prompts on the Five Things meme. Writing them in drabbles or sort of, so these will be coming a bit at a time, though I'm hoping to get them all done before too long so I can work on extending those 'one sentence fics I've never written' prompts I want to expand.

FOR THE MOMENT THOUGH.

I will try to stop mood-swinging so much, really. >__> Also finally have the seed of an idea, just need to knuckle down and write... [livejournal.com profile] shorelle you should be seeing birthday present soon, I'm sorry I fail so hard. XD

Also have other fics to write, largely for NYR and largely Melusine themed...still must try to write something happy. This is much harder than it should be! Eurgh. Am also trying to figure out how I can expand my readership on things, I would really like to have more people readng this stuff so I at least get some idea of quality (though of course compliments are always nice too.) 

And yeah, going to try not to be so mood swingy, am annoying even me. Though possibly partly because I had scaryvivid dream last night where I was failing - actually failing - almost all of my classes. And it freaked me out badly. Because my grades are slipping, and I really really really have been concerned I'm going to flunk something this year - as opposed to just getting a B, which I don't like either, but I can live with if I have to.

Too Sleepy To Function, off to bed and maybe reading a bit of The Book of Night With Moon. Maybe I'll be productive tomorrow. Something.

This water tastes weird, I'll probably get plastic cup poisoning. XD

ETA: Psych! Meme.

Pick up to 15 OTPs.
- Describe them in less than 15 words.
- Have your flist guess the OTP. (I'm curious how many of these people can get simply by osmosis.)
- PROFIT.

1. Dysfunctional, incestuous, traumatized love. (No, Mimi. XD)
Felix/Mildmay, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ifshadowsoffend 
2. That analogy about horses and saddles should not be that kinky.
3. They make teacher/student relationships just fine. Very fine. Bast/Kvothe, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ifshadowsoffend 
4. You could cut the UST between this pair with a razor.
5. There is one reason I ship this pairing, and her name is Mimi.
6. There is so much wrong with this pairing. Namely the fact that I ship it.
7. The ultimate in opposites attract. Crowley/Aziraphale, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] trialia and [livejournal.com profile] redsilkscarf.
9. A whole new meaning to 'crazy-in-love.' Now with fewer hands!
10. Because they love to hang out. Though usually only one of them is doing the hanging. Maedhros/Fingon, guessed by, again, [livejournal.com profile] ifshadowsoffend

I am so bewildered at myself right now. Been in such weird mood(s) lately. Like on the one hand ridiculously cheerful and the other relentlessly emo and then full of energy and then sick of everything and just - god. I don't even know. And I'm kind of fed up with myself. I'm just so stupid sometimes. :\ I dunno. Whatever.

Weird things making me happy, weird things making me sad. I understand next to none of it. And none of it matters, so...

I'm worried about people. A lot. *sigh*

I just wish I could trade lives with people sometimes. They deserve better.

I'm just feeling limp and exhausted and wrung out already. It's not even October. This is supposed to be my February blues. Failing at school, failing at family, generally failing at life - but now I'm going all emo again. So I think I should just back away from my LJ slowly and...stop babbling. May not be here for a couple days unless something interesting actually happens.

Adios.

I am so OCD sometimes it is not even funny.

My latest?

I catalouged my entire bookshelf in author order - not including the books in storage but including the books packed in a box under the table up here - in an Excel document, by Title, Author, Preceded By..., and Followed By.... The last two for series.

I feel so accomplished. I finally finished the bookshelf itself. Onward to the box!!!

XDD I am such a loser. I know this.

Also OMG THEY FOUND BIGFOOT? O.o

And a meme, stolen from [personal profile] assimbya if anyone wants to try it.

If you've ever watched your favorite DVDs, and then found yourself eager to hear exactly what the actors, directors, writers and even production designers thought about making the episode, the movie, or whatever - you'll know sometimes the best parts of DVDs are hearing the commentaries. Getting into an actor's feelings about the character they play, getting the background behind a writer's plans and metaphors, even just getting the stupid anecdotal stuff that makes you laugh, it's all good.

Ask me about any story, and I'll do a DVD commentary for it! Satisfy your curiosity!

If my stories aren't at [profile] ficviendha (i.e. most/all of my Wheel of Time stuff), it's on FFN under Min Daae.

Maybe I will consider doing something productive. Ha ha ha ha ha. Like that'll happen.

I seriously need a job. I think I will go town job hunting some time soon...I neeeed a job. Money. Yeah.

Lise: *flails* I borrrred!

Debating whether to call him or not. May have to, as he has not gotten back to me. This is scary. I don't know what I'm doing! Blaaah!

I love this picture on this icon. It makes me happy like No One's Business.

I'm thinking about New Year's Resolutions...I never make them. But I begin to think maybe that's because I don't make good ones that are possible to keep.

So this year: I AM MAKING ONES I CAN KEEP.

1. Ask someone to Tolo. That's it. Just ask.
2. Read A Game of Thrones.
3. Finish [profile] 50_darkfics claim.
4. Send something to a publisher. Anything, just send it.
5. Win at NaNoWriMo.
6. Finish at least one of those unfinished stories in my computer. YOU KNOW WHO I'M TALKING ABOUT, BITCHES. *glares at them*

I CAN SO DO THIS.

Heather Dale makes me feel sort of...yearnful. Longing for something. I don't even know what, it just does...

 First, found this on my flist: What a gem.

Worth taking a look at the context, here.

WANKITY WANK WANK WANK.

Worth checking out over at Fandom Wank.

Admittedly, [personal profile] flemco had some valid points, but a combination of baby pictures, condescension, holier-than-thou attitude and sky high arrogance officially invalidated everything they said. Hahahaha. I love it when people are more foot in mouth than I am. However, arguments prove that after time, all things disintegrate into OP saying "GET FUCKED."

Gotta love that creativity there, eh?

ANYWAY. Back to story. Word count update in a bit, with an excerpt, I promise. I don't care if nobody reads them, YOU ARE GETTING A FRIGGIN EXCERPT.

*pants* Sorry. I think NaNo has blown my brain. Or maybe just [profile] desperatefans. Oh god, I have five crazy puppets in my head now. Remind me again why I'm looking for another? Oh yeah, because I'm stupid. *sighs* Oh well. *troops off*
Well, my list of priorities for this weekend looks like this:
   
1. NaNoWriMo
2. Write English paper rough draft
3. Make icons
4. Write in Otherworld
5. Do Drawing assignment
6. Write up Biology conclusion

There is something seriously wrong with me. The story is going well, though. 1,059 words today, already. Not even 6:00 yet. :D
