So what exactly I am supposed to do until Season 3 of Being Human on SyFy? *sigh*

Also, I am generally not super squeamish, but the torture scenes thus far in Borgias Season 2 have me whipping out the remote to fast forward. Seriously I know it's fake but the implements of torture are so scary I can't even.
charmedfears: (JOSH)
A few updates, fannish and otherwise, before I'm off to bed:

* I recently discovered "Being Human', the US edition. I blew through Season 1 on Netflix, and then luckily caught up with Season 2 on demand. I am loving this show; quirky writing, deeply flawed characters I care about, and surprising plot twists. (Yes, I know that most people seem to prefer the UK version, and I did watch a few eps, but JOSH. Just JOSH JOSH JOSH. Also I love the Boston house with a strange kind of burning. I am weirdly siding with the US version for once in my life; go figure.)

* Mad Men is back, and luckily it will be on at 10pm so as not to disrupt my watching of The Good Wife. Sunday nights will have the 2 hour block of awesome for the next 2 months. :D

* Working on I/I fic, and had another idea for one this morning. My problem lately is finding time to write. RL has been very demanding recently and I keep finding myself falling into bed and wanting to read fic instead of write it. :/

* Not feeling the new Doctor Who companion. Then again, I'm not feeling Eleven, so I guess we're even there.

* Someday, Netflix will update Merlin and I will see the end of Season 4. :*| I don't know how I haven't been spoiled on it, frankly.

Meme snagged from [livejournal.com profile] jenab :

I was thinking you should tell me about stories you think I should write. I mean, if you could sit me down for a day or whatever and say, "I want you to write this story for me," what would that story be?

I'm not actually promising to *write* any of these, mind you, but it's fun anyway. And who knows if I'll be inspired!
charmedfears: (sherlock not my division)
Here's the thing: I'm a crazy freak for h/c. Love it. Crave it. Write it. (Or, okay, think about writing it for months and then finally write it.) My ideal h/c is more physical than mental, and doesn't skip out on the "c" part of the equation. I promise that I DO read other kinds of fics; it's just that h/c pushes all my buttons.

Blah blah more about h/c )
charmedfears: (ukitake has internets)
Holy crap, I cannot believe it's been a month since I posted my last Ichi/Ishi fic. I am honestly quite concerned about how fast February is going. Winter is my favorite season and I feel rather shortchanged this year; we had some snow, but not the epic amounts we had last year. :(

I am trying to figure out which fic I want to work on next. I'm torn between writing a 'missing scene' fic with Ichi/Ishi (the scene with them studying for finals and writing on each other from 'Anatomy & Physiology') or writing an Ichi/Ishi cold weather fic (oh noes they must cuddle for warmth). I will likely write both of them eventually, but I don't know which one to do first. Also I keep debating an FMA short fic or POSSIBLY Zelda fic because I've been playing Skyward Sword so much. I would also love to try my hand at Sherlock but then I'd need brit-picking. :\

I need to make up my mind. Any thoughts, lovely LJ folk? My indecisive muse has been no help.

Notes: This fic is for [livejournal.com profile] kiyala who writes beautifully and is fun to squee with over I/I. The prompt she gave me was jealousy. I never took so much as one bio class in college, so all medical facts are very suspect.

Had a delicious breakfast (turkey bacon ftw) and now migrated to my favorite coffee shop of all time for some peace and quiet (and oh yeah some writing).

Why can't every day be just like this...oh wait I have to work. XD

Edit: This is just to say that Ichi/Ishi fic is now at 11,100 words. I'm not even kidding. And I'm close to being done but not quite there yet. WOO-HOO!
charmedfears: (sherlock book)
I never bothered reading any of the BBC Sherlock blogs before, but found this entry in Molly Hooper's blog today and lost it utterly. Jim Moriarty and Glee? It's just too eerily perfect.
charmedfears: (sherlock shock)
Season 2. Episode 1. Holy Crap. I will not spoil a thing, promise. Just need to say that my flailing was SEVERE during that episode, and not only that, I may have shouted a bit. Or whispered loudly at a few intervals. I swear that 90 minutes of that show is like 200 hours of other shows. (Though that's not to say I wouldn't like more Sherlock, because I most definitely would, but then I wouldn't have Freeman!Bilbo so that's the price, I suppose.)

Given my current level of squee, I estimate it will be quite awhile before I can fall asleep. XD

No spoilers here...just need to say that I think Skyward Sword could be--just possibly--my favorite game yet. Only finished the first temple, but seriously, my love for this game is deep, people.
charmedfears: (keep calm tangled)
2011 was...interesting. A few good things, some very sad things, and some pretty significant adjustments along the way.

New Year's is definitely not one of my favorite holidays; it's pretty much at the bottom of the list for me. It doesn't make me feel optimistic or hopeful the way Christmas does that for me. New Year's is like a cruel slap, reminding me of all the things that went wrong, or didn't happen, or ways in which I didn't measure up. Yes, yes, I know...it's not a good idea to compare myself to others, because they're on their own paths and I'm on mine, and that way lies madness. So I try not to invest in New Year's too much--no resolutions, no party, no real celebration on my part--in the hopes that it will pass over my head and not force me to dwell on things I can't change.

May you have a peaceful day/night, wherever you are, and may your neighbors not be too annoying with pots and pans (like mine are right now). XD

Sad Rant

I am really sad about LJ and the people who are leaving. I know some will continue to cross-post here, but not all the people (and communities) I follow will, which sucks. I know people are angry and disappointed in LJ, and I'm not trying to defend LJ by any means. I'm just selfishly annoyed that things aren't going to be the same.

Unfortunately, I have zero interest in starting over somewhere else. I tried DW (different username), and even though people swear it's just like LJ, I can't make it work very well. I honestly don't like it, format-wise or otherwise. Maybe it's just me. I don't know.

I get it; change is inevitable. But that doesn't mean I have to like it. :(

Edit: I was in a really bad mood last night when I wrote this. I had a RL crisis going on that knocked me sideways and maybe it's silly (okay, probably very silly) but I felt like fandom was kind of slipping away and that I wouldn't be able to keep up. Anyway. My RL crisis has been averted, so I'm out of my OMG-everything-is-bad-and-will-never-be-good-again-headspace. I just want to say that I'm really grateful for all the fun and good bits going on in this little corner of the internet and I'm so happy to be able to squee with all of you. ♥

All I'm gonna say is that now I'm feeling it...the old familiar pang of OMGWHENISTHENEXTCHAPTERGOINGTOBEPOSTED and CANNOTWAITAWEEKAHHHHH.

HURTS SO GOOD. XD
charmedfears: (ichigo is a wizard)
OMG...I just read about 20 chapters of Bleach and got officially caught up. Must squee!

Title: Against Medical Advice
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sainnis
Series: Bleach
Pairing: Ishida Uryuu/Kurosaki Ichigo
Rating: R (injury and language)
Word Count: 1, 710

Summary: Sort of!canon. Set right after Uryuu's near-fatal injury at the beginning of the Fullbring arc.
Notes: So this fic was written for [livejournal.com profile] nehalenia, who has been waiting for months and months. I don't know if this even closely resembles your original request, but hopefully you'll enjoy it anyway. ♥

God only knew how many stitches it had taken for Ryuuken to put him back together )
charmedfears: (aisling secret of kells)
I realized the other day that I really need to start posting here, even if I don't have fic or anything really worthwhile to add, mainly because I'm PAYING for this space, and also because it's way too easy for me not to write at all. This is space that I can write in, and I really need to. I've become an LJ lurker, which sort of defeats the point. So! Here I am.

Various items await )

This weekend kicked my sweet little bum HARD. Work, then hurricane, then no power, then the cleanup, indoors and out. I am a horrible person to be around when there is no power, and that was made worse by the 3 hours of sleep I got.

I have no idea what this week will bring so I am going to bed in the hopes that I can try to get enough sleep to feel human again tomorrow.
charmedfears: (ride the kick)
Getting ready for Hurricane Irene. People may be making a lot of fuss about nothing, but I've always been of the 'safe not sorry' persuasion, so I say do whatever you need to do to feel okay. (If that means buy three loaves of bread and enough peanut butter to stock your pantry for a year, so be it.) I am optimistic that we won't take on too much water, but that remains to be seen.

We had a massive power outage a year or so ago, and had to go five days without power. It seemed like an eternity. (First world problem, I know, right?) Not having internet access would make me a sad panda, so hopefully it won't be too bad.

Hope the millions of people affected will be only inconvenienced by the storm and nothing more. :) Stay safe, all!

EDIT: Looooong day, power outage, took on some water. Still, all is well now, and we got through safely. All things considered, a pretty good outcome.
