It is finished.  My ultimate tribute to Evil and Villainy.  Mwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

For those of you not in the loop, The Evil Plan is revenge.  [livejournal.com profile] iloome convinced me to read Ultimates against my better judgement, and I spent the whole time reading wondering why I hadn't stopped yet, but without being able to stop staring at the train-wreck that is Ultimates. [livejournal.com profile] salmastryon also encouraged the plot, since iloome's BB left her with feels.  But now, now my revenge is nigh.  I have 56 pages of Evil waiting to be typed up that is specifically tailored completely and totally destroy iloome through feels.  I pulled out all the stops, everything I know that will drive the stake home (well, except for vampires.  Sadly, there are no vampires in this fic) and leave her with fatal feels.  And best of all, she asked for it.  I am delivering my revenge in the guise of her own making.

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.  Well, iloome, this dish is officially cooling.  Armageddon is creeping closer.  It cannot be stopped.  It lurks around the corner waiting to strike.  And when it does, it will be glorious.  It will be a day to remember, when Evil once again strikes fear into the hearts of fandom friends.  So tread lightly, iloome.  In the words of G'kar and N'toth, "You will know fear.  And you will know pain.  And then, you will die (of feels).  <3"  And don't worry, I have plenty of phoenix downs in case you don't make it to the end. That's what friends are for, right?   XD

So in case anyone wonders about the mad cackling going on, yeah, that's totally why.  <3

Panda fic

Aug. 12th, 2013 05:18 am
Panda fic is finished.  Even though I'm still not sure what to make of Ultimates Steve coming in and taking over the fic, it is now finished and probably a little under 30k.  So yay for that.  Also, there are pandas.  And feels.  And 80's songs that I still totally want to name the fic after (you guys are not doing a good job of convincing me otherwise).  Anyway, it's done now.  I just have to type it up, which is annoying, but hey.  Hopefully this one will work for the BB.
So I've written both Steve and Tony in a couple of different ways now, but the Steve in my new Big Bang seems vastly different from my previous Steves.  It's a bit odd.  He's just... bitter, I suppose.  It's post Iron Man 3, which makes Tony more emotionally adjusted than Steve (really, Steve, when you have more issues than Tony, you should get help).  Except Tony's also post-Pepper break up, which leaves him vulnerable.  And Steve is just being a bit of a dick about the whole thing.

He's just... bitter.  I suppose it's because that until Cap 2 comes out, he's kind of left in a limbo of really not fitting in just yet.  And with six months between Avengers and Iron Man 3, I've let him sort of drift and become bitter about it all, rather than whatever Bucky-related fun times the movie has planned.  In fact, he seems to be leaning towards the Cap I see in Ultimates fics, which considering how I tend to avoid Ultimates in general, is a bit odd.

I kind of like this Cap though.  He doesn't take Tony's BS.  He's constantly frustrated with Tony, and it's all the fun I have with Doctor/Master 'I hate you therefore I love you' relationship.  Really, I have a type.  I think I've said this in a chat before, but I'm not sure what I'll ever do if movie-verse Cap and Tony become as good of friends as they are in the comics, because I would have no plots left.  All of my plots are just getting to be friends.  I WILL HAVE NOTHING LEFT.

I suppose I could always just go back to Whovian fandom if that happens, but still.  Where's the fun in that?

So yeah, I've got this odd Ultimates Cap who I have no idea what to do with.  He's kind of entertaining though, especially when he starts getting mentally sassy and sarcastic with Tony.

The main thing is that Cap keeps calling him 'Stark' which is really annoying for me.  For some reason, I can switch between Cap and Steve, but Tony is just Tony.  I have to constantly fix me calling him Tony, and I've still probably missed half of them.  Steve, just give in and call him Tony already.  >.>

Also, I know I said I wasn't going to project on this fic, but I might be totally projecting.  Especially with Tony twisting his ankle. *whistles innocently*
So I've just gotten back an email from the mods saying my Big Bang is too team fic.  It makes me a sad, sad panda, but it's not unexpected really.

But hey, it means you get deaged fic sooner, since now I've got no reason not to post it.  Well, I still need to finish this scene with Natasha and I'll probably send that to Nar to look over as well, but after that I can just post it.  Sadly, there will be no art of Little Tony giving Cap a teddy bear, but I'll survive.

I've still got time left, so I might try and see if Steve and the Panda will measure out to 25k.  I have a scene or two which I can pad it out with if I need to (Because Tony should totally twist his ankle on the Great Wall.  No, I'm not projecting.  Okay, maybe a little), so we'll see.  It does pretty much negate the point of making a poll the other day, but hey, go ahead and vote anyway if you haven't already.

We'll see what happens I suppose, and I have gotten permission to post previous BB to the com, since it's pre-slash.  So you can find it there when I do get things up. 
Yup, it's finished.  I might re-write the ending, since I wasn't overly pleased with it, but it's finally finished.  Now I just have to type it up and send it to the beta.  Hopefully she'll be done with angst cupids by that point.
All the Abba. ALL OF THE ABBA. )
So the BB fic is typed and now beta'ed, sent to the mods to approve of provided it is Steve/Tony enough.  I'm still debating on adding a scene with Natasha, but we'll see.  I might wait on that until I'm done with History Lessons sequel, which I admittedly haven't been working on as religiously as I might be.  It's probably nearly finished, but my interwebs are currently restricted to the office, and that's when I usually write.

I did find an awesome title though.  And by awesome, I mean 'This could not be any more perfect than it is' sort of awesome.  I'd gone through like, three or four that I didn't really care for, before Nar got the fic.  Then she was trying to find a good title and I figured I might as well look at a few poems to steal from.  Then Edna St. Vincent Millay happened, as she is wont to do.  Despite the fact I was looking for another poem by her entirely, she did give me the perfect title.  I knew she was one of my favorites for a reason.

Also, I had the awkward fandom conversation with my room mates.  It's a lot harder when they've never heard of fandom.  There's a reason I tend to avoid this conversation, and it's not because I'm ashamed of fandom or anything like that.  It's just so bloody annoying having to explain everything.  Yes, I like cartoons.  No, that's not childish.  Yes, I write stories.  No, they can't be published and you probably wouldn't understand them since you're confused by my Cap and Iron Man plushies.  Trust me, you don't want to wander into fandom by yourself because you will be scarred.  Just all the hoops you have to jump through when talking to someone who has no idea that fandom even exists.  It's exhausting, and I could be spending that time reading or doing other things.  -_-;;;

It was rather weird talking to someone who had never even heard of Marvel and its superheroes though.  Granted, it's probably not as big a deal in China as it is stateside, but the movies have been kind of hard to miss, I thought.  Then again, she's also sitting there calling me out on how unfeminine I am, since I don't like dresses, pink, half a dozen other things, and yet I like action movies and scifi.  I swear, it's like they've never heard of a tomboy here.  I shake my head at you sometimes, China.  I really do.

In the mean time, I'm still contemplating Steve and pandas for fic.  I haven't done pure crack in a while, though this will probably end up as Unicorn sort of crack rather than Roleplaying Time Lords crack.  I'm also contemplating a return to Whovian fic with the next Amy-verse (though I should really wait until the next Amy-verse gets back to me since it's still not posted).  I might throw up another poll just for kicks.  We'll see how it goes.  XD
So I was reading a pretty good fic the other day, and then the ending happened.  And it wasn't a bad ending, it just... it was too pat.  It's all like, but WHAT ABOUT ALL OF THEIR ISSUES?  They had so many issues which you didn't bother to resolve.  And none of them mattered in the end, because they had to have a happy ending.

Ranting, and a bit about the BB )
There's only a bit of whining, I promise. )
So since I can't find my pictures of the Chinese wedding I went to this weekend, I figured I'd do a post about Batman instead.  Because why not?  Now with edit.

Nananananana... Batman! )
So, first of all, I have finally listened to all the audios in the main line of Big Finish.  All current 172.  It only took me a few years.  I feel accomplished though.  Silly thing to feel accomplished about, but hey.  I fully recommend them, should you get the chance.  Also, the Destiny of the Doctor so far has been lovely.  Oh, Eleven.  Totally worth the $40, so don't just take my word for it.  So are the Fourth Doctor Adventures, btw.  The main thing is that I don't know what to start on next.  I've got three big choices, and I figured I'd ask you guys your opinion.  And hey, poll!

[Poll #1909080]

So, yeah, there's that.  On to the second fannish thing.  Sadly, I think this one will be mostly ignored since I don't think many people share the fandom.  Still, it's worth a shot.

Basically, I've been re-playing Chrono Trigger, as you do, and have gotten to the Kingdom of Zeal and all the lovely bits the game doesn't really fill out.  And for the first time I thought I might like some fic of this.  Except, I really don't want to spend my time searching through Chrono Trigger fics because I'm not that big on the fandom.  Which is where you guys come in.  Rec me good Schala and/or Magus/Janus fics.  Heck, I'll probably take a good fic even if it doesn't have to do with them, but those are the ones I'm mainly looking for.  Time-y whime-y is totally an added plus.  One specific game ending aside though, I'm really not sure I can handle Crono talking, so keep that in mind.

Thanks for the input! 
My typing is completed.  Both Amy-verse and Avengers long fic is typed up and awaiting betaing.  Life is good.  It only took me how long?  Let's not go into that.  Anyway, expect fic from me soon.

And now I'm going to go, since Chinese computers are being screwy and not letting me type more than a few words without clicking out of the browser.  l8r.
[livejournal.com profile] narwhale_callin seems to think that I've used the quote "Now I do not know whether it was then I dreamt I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man." before on some fic.  I'm also decently sure that I haven't and that Avengers long fic is the first time.

So, ye people of the internet who read my fics, which of us is correct?  Have I used the butterfly quote before?  Or is Nar just making things up?

Also, to be a not complete waste of space, the next Amy-verse is finally awaiting beta.  It only took me how many months after finishing it?  Yeah, let's not go there.  And Avengers long fic has two more chapters an an epilogue for me to type so I can send that to Nar.  So new fic for you guys is in sight, I promise.

I never actually expected that to happen. No, seriously.  It's one thing to write a crappy fic that one completely despises about a random happenstance that is coincidental and probably impossible.  It's quite another to have it actually happen to one's self almost ten years after said fic was written.  That's just weird.

Okay, let me explain.  The medicine that the doctor gave me for my bronchitis is really bitter.  And since I have to dissolve it in hot water and then drink it, that's a lot of bitter to take in.  The after taste takes forever to get out of your mouth too.  So I figured out that a spoon full of sugar really does make the medicine go down.  Or, at least, covers up the after taste.  Basically, I've been buying M&M's to get rid of the taste.  It's been working pretty well so far.

Except tonight, when I'm eating my post-medicine snack, I noticed something strange.  I noticed it, since I look every single time anyway due to sorting out my M&M's into their separate colors. Yes, just because I hate that fic doesn't mean I don't eat my M&M's that way every time.  Hush.

The thing is, there was only one green M&M.

Not even a different color.  No, it was the single, solitary green M&M.  It wasn't chipped, which really, that would have been too creepy.  I still felt like telling it all about how much my life has sucked recently, because THAT'S TOTALLY WHAT YOU DO TO SOLITARY GREEN M&M'S.

Maybe that means things will start getting better soon.  It worked for Hisoka after his terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.  It should work for Mem after her terrible, horrible, no good, very bad time dealing with TTC.  Sadly, there will be no Tsuzuki to give me a hug and pep talk.  I feel bereft.

I did tell it that it was a special M&M and everyone loved it before I ate it so it could join its friends in my stomach.  Because one should never be alone in a crowd.

Yes, I really am that crazy.  But that's okay, you guys love me anyway.

Because not only are you killing off my favorite characters, but you're making Five angsty again.  But sometimes, Big Finish, you do have your moments.  Especially when the conversation went something like this:

Female one off: "But Doctor, I took your pulse! You were dead!"
Seven: "I was merely pining for the fjords."

I love you, Seven. I really, really do.  Especially since he just said it so casually.  I had to pause it till I stopped laughing.  XD

Also, since I promised and completely forgotten to post it here, have my China lj.  Yeah, it's been fun times.  Up till I got bronchitis, but that's a whole different story...
Long fic is finished!  Now I just have to type up 80 pages.  And the rest of Amy-verse.  I hate you, universe. 

Also, if you didn't see my note at the end of the last Lurker's Guide commentary, I'm leaving tomorrow morning for China.  So don't expect this typing to happen any time soon.  But for what it's worth, it's done.  Even if I don't know if I like how the last scene turned out.  It'll be up sometime.

Finally, provided lj is reachable over there (or my VPN works), I should be creating a new lj for China blogging purposes.  I shall link to it here once it's made. So I'll see you, when I see you.  Cause I'm leeeeeeeeeeeeeeaving on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again... Oh, babe, I hate to go...  XD


Edit: I've got "One Day More" from Les Mis stuck in my head.  No, that's not ominous at all...
Okay, since this week sucked and is still sucking, I've decided to hell with responsibilities today.  Procrastination is the way to go.  Mostly because I've given up caring for the day. 

That said, I've posted at least twenty more fics since the last time I did this meme, have twenty more first lines from my fics.  I dread to think what they say about me. Extras added for drabbles.

More first lines... )
So they've finally revealed names for the [livejournal.com profile] cap_ironman gift exchange/secret santa.  I'll be posting mine to my lj, AO3, and possibly ff.net account soon with some new edits, but if you're too impatient you can check the com for History Lessons.  Right now though?  Now I can finally bitch about it. 

Mem is tired of long fic. )
So [livejournal.com profile] nemaline was playing around with The Universal Mary Sue Litmus Test.  I asked her what she was talking about and she linked me, then I decided to run Lizzie Mathews through it to see if she passes.  XD  Here's how she held up.


So many of the questions didn't apply to her at all... )

With some discussion of Life After People )
It doesn't come out very often, and certainly not for most things people consider chick flicks, but every so often Mem gets a little gushy and likes things romantic.  Either that, or the world is ending and hell has frozen over.  Take your pick. 


The end of the world as we know it. )
