It’s 101 Days of Smiles and it’s time to talk yourself up, writers! Appreciate yourself and your writing. Enjoy it and don’t be afraid to tag your fic. This is all about self love–ahem….not that kind–so have fun with it.

I have been tagged by gaslightgallows

(I tend to answer these types of meme with an mcu fic and one with other fandoms, because I have a lot of fic and I’ll spread the love that way)

Ten Questions and Answers )
[profile] dragoninthecup asked for Not All That We Are, Book IV: Black Sails at Dawn

But this is my favorite answer, so I'll leave this outside the cut. :)

10 If I had to sum up this fic in a sentence, what would it be?
If you don't like Cylons, Anders, and mysticism in BSG, oh boy, this fic isn't for you.

since I talk a lot and there are spoilers for the fic )

Borrowing a tumblr thing in case anyone around here wants to play just to have something to post. You get out of the habit and suddenly it's like NOTHING seems worthy of posting about... 

Drop the title of one of my fics and number and I will tell you:
1. What was my inspiration for this fic? How did it come to me?
2 What’s my favorite part of the fic?
3 What’s the part of the fic I’m most proud of?
4 What part of the fic was the hardest for me to write?
5 What part of the fic am I still dissatisfied with?
6 Who’s my favorite character in the fic?
7 Were there any major decisions I made about the fic that could have made it go a whole different direction?
8 Was there anything I only learned about the fic after I had finished it? (themes, motifs, symbolism, etc)
9 Did anyone in the fic surprise me by doing anything? If so, what?
10 If I had to sum up this fic in a sentence, what would it be?
11 If I were to rewrite this fic, what would I change?
12  Did any thing about this fic’s reception surprise me?
13 What were my beta’s major comments about the first draft of this fic?
14 If I were to write a sequel to this fic, what would it be about?
15  Any other question about the fic!

(or all of them for any story, I'm also fine with that. Because I do like to talk about fic. Any of them.)

Since I am woefully sad about journal updating except when I have fic to post, I thought I should do the ASK ME TO TALK ABOUT A THING meme.

You can ask fannish stuff, my fanon on things, random questions, meta on topics, top fives, whatever. As the kids say on Tumblr, ask is open, so ask away.

Today I went to get my hair done and after getting so many "that's really great" with the red from Operation Black Widow, I took the leap and had her permacolor it this time. For a long time I've done blonde highlights but this time it's darker, more of a reddish chestnut (not Black Widow red this time *g*). So we'll see what the boys think of it. (if D even notices - he took an hour to notice when it was BRIGHT RED. In his defense it was kind of dim at the time, but it was hilarious anyway). kiddo has now officially dubbed it purple.

And in the salon at the same time was some actor. I think he's on Scandal as a recurring character, from what I gathered eavesdropping. But I don't watch the show, so I don't know who he is other than I was pretty sure I'd seen him in something else, probably some guest star role(s). He's about thirty, short blonde hair, fairly tall... So there, have a vague celebrity sighting. :D

Kidlet is going to the semifinals for our AYSO region, and hopefully on to the championship. He's got some good players on his team, and he's a pretty good defender when he gets into it. I'll be glad when soccer's done, though.

Now that Big Bang is in beta (thanks Rose!), it's onto my ridiculous Yuletide fic next. I don't know if I can make it as funny as it deserves, but the idea makes me chortle, at least.

MEANWHILE, hit me with the current character meme:
Pick a character I've written and I will explain the top five* ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.

(this meme a.k.a. My Characterization Let Me Show You It)

and one of these days I need to catch up on tv and actually write a post about it all. Because wow did I fall behind during NaNo.

I think I did this book meme before, so I won't do it again. But looking at it, I'm slightly irritated because it has three Hardy books on it, and not the one I read. Damn you English class for making me read the wrong one! How can I meme if I read all the wrong books?!?!?! heh But I have read about six of my own free will, so it's sort of right, if I take out the ones I was required to read.

Ah, The Secret History. Y'know, I'm surprised no one's managed to make a film of that. The rights were sold for a bazillion dollars back in the day, IIRC, but it must've been one of those projects that poofed. I don't even know if people still read it, or was it one of those literary flash-in-the-pan, 50-shades-of-grey of its time?

But that list is sort of hilarious - not just the duplicates, but c'mon ,does anyone who is not a Shakespeare specialist read the Complete Works? I read a few plays on my own and I had a teacher who made us read a few extras, so I've probably read more than most non-lit majors, but still, I've maybe read half of them total. All seems like a lot to expect.

First, because [ profile] kleenexcow asked, Here is my picspam post for the source for the post's icon. Trucco. Boykissing. You're welcome. ;)

Icon meme beneath )

Fannishly, I signed up for Kink Bingo again, and my first porny idea has already transmuted itself into some kind of Loki character study. Self, we got all kinds of fic to do first, so cut it out.

Otherwise I have had a busy week with kiddo and hubby both on vacay this week, so even though we're not going away this week, it's been a whole parade of activity. Today we took the new Expo line light rail which is pretty awesome, made the trip so easy. It's so weird to think that we're basically restoring what used to exist in LA almost a hundred years ago. We saw the tent which will house the space shuttle (while the museum is under construction) when it comes this fall. That's gonna be so cool.

So I have this itchy need to write something, but I have limited time today, so I'm stealing a meme from [ profile] sabaceanbabe.

Pick a pairing (het, slash, femslash are all okay) and I'll write a short scene where they share a kiss. I might decide to write a sweet romantic kiss, or a rough, demanding one, it might be a very innocent kiss, or something completely smutty - I'm letting the muse decide.

Fandoms: BSG, TVD, Avengers, Snow White&theHuntsman (saw it last night!), DW, FL, Nikita, OUAT, PofI, and my older fandoms too.

Just for fun -- Stolen from [ profile] ivanolix

1) Give me a pairing.
2) Give me an AU setting.
3) I will write you a three-sentence fic

lizardbeth: (Kara-Anders - Magic)
( Aug. 24th, 2011 04:32 pm)
FOR EXAMPLE. I did this for [ profile] somadanne at [ profile] bsg_epics who requested "Feather Dusting", from the Nellis-verse.

1. One day later.

2. One month later.
They have sex. There are probably handcuffs involved.

3. One year later
The night before Sam leaves for deployment in Iraq, guess what they do?

4. Ten years later
All that sex has finally caught up to them, and there's a kid in the bedroom down the hall. That doesn't stop them! :)

Any other story you want to know what happens after "the end"?
Day 3 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?

Characters I like and where they fit into the narrative of my fanfictional life )

ok, I could write more, but it's already very late on Day 3, so ...Post It!
2 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.

Major Fandoms: (Lots of Words. Lots and lots of words. I used to be a lot faster)

Babylon 5 - I wrote for Yuletide! So yes, I still write for it. Sort of. (this has the fewest words online of these five, but I also have a ton of WIPS on my HD)
Lord of the Rings - no. It was my fandom when kiddo was born, and I never managed to get back the muse.
Stargate SG-1 - yes, still write, occasionally. Owe a fic.
Jeremiah - wrote for Yuletide. Owe a fic.
Battlestar Galactica - HELL YES IT STILL EATS MY BRAIN.

Minor Fandoms: (at least two fics longer than a comment-fic)

Terminator:SCC - no, not currently writing. Though I did write a Terminator Movieverse fic for YT.
Pirates of the Caribbean - I would say not current, except I did start that Doctor Who/PotC crossover...
Supernatural - not current
Vampire Diaries - current fandom, recently wrote comment fic.
Trucco - (Fairly Legal, Castle, V) -- sometimes at once...

Day One
From [ profile] ivanolix

1 – How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?

Answer: I take a nostalgic trip down memory lane )

other days )
lizardbeth: (bored now)
( Jun. 13th, 2011 01:58 pm)
Since I went to upload my Fairly Legal crackfic to AO3, I thought it'd be fun to do that AO3 meme that was around awhile back.

So. My Top Ten read fics at with a bit of commentary. Pretending to work, who me?

the list )
The moral of this story? Popularity is clearly assisted by Yuletide and/or porn. We are all shocked to learn this, I'm sure.
lizardbeth: (BSG- opera house)
( Mar. 29th, 2011 05:46 pm)

Pick any character from a fandom of mine and I'll answer the following questions:

you know the questions by now probably )

Somehow [ profile] lyssie unearthed five icons of mine which are not Michael Trucco. This isn't as easy as you might think! (Most of them have specific purposes, to illustrate certain stories. really. *looks shifty*)

Five icons )

So, if you wanna
1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of Icon Squee!

Snagged from [ profile] emmiere

In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I’m inviting trick-or-treaters to my ‘door’. Comment “trick-or-treat” to this post and…well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I’m glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!

eta: Sorry, I'm all out of virtual candy, and my porch light's out now. *g*

Round up in comments below:
- B5 ficlet
- BSG/B5 snippet
- um, crackish SW/DW xover thing?
- Demming (Castle) snippet
For [ profile] tafkarfanfic's meme (which is kind of like the other fake!tv show meme, except backwards), [ profile] lyssie gave me:
Michael Trucco
JR Bourne
Grace Park
Daniel Dae Kim
Kristen Cloke
Cliff Simon
Mira Furlan

I suppose plotless soft-core porn on Starz AfterDark is out of the question? yes? So instead, how about my far-too-hot cast be actually ... inhuman?

The Other Side

Detective Bridget Ferguson (Kristen Cloke) thinks it's a homicide like any other. But there's a strange shadow around the corpse that only Bridget can see. As she probes deeper into the victim's life and death, she uncovers a world inside her own, where the deathless play with the mortal and ancient magic hides in the city lights.

Once they learn your name, there's no going back )

So here's The Deal:

You post a comment on this entry. In return, I will give you a list of seven actors. (I may look at your profile for a refresher on your fandoms, so consider this a perfect time to update your Interests section!) Then YOU will go back to your LJ and do a quickie show bible. The show bible includes:

* A one-paragraph blurb on what the show is about (like you get in TV Guide)
* What character each actor is playing (you don't need character names, but you do need a description
* For extra credit, a sketch of a plot arc or two OR a couple of two-sentence teasers for first-season episodes.

If you choose to cast a few more "roles" in your write-up, all the more awesome!

Then you post The Deal at the end of your entry, and for anyone who comments on your post and wants to play, give them a list of seven actors.

Snurched from [ profile] sabaceanbabe because ... yay.

my women of awesome icon wall )

please, nobody tell me there was an easier way to do that....

Comment and I will give you ten actors and ten actresses. Then post in your Livejournal with your favorite films of theirs.

I restricted myself to feature films, which turned out to be kind of hard with some of them, who do mostly t.v., but that's what makes it fun, right?

By the way, for me, "favorite" is not the same at all as "the best". I use the criteria of: "Do I own it? Do I touch on its fandom in some way? Do I stop to watch it when I'm flipping channels? Or does the thought of watching it again fill me with dread?"

[ profile] karate0kat gave me:

Ten girls and Ten boys who act in movies )

Wanna play? :)
