sunshine_queen: Tricia being fierce, as always. (Default)
- So, on tumblr someone ([ profile] radon_?) made this awesome gif set of Stana Katic looking beautiful in black and white. I did a tiny bit of research and lo, it turns out that it's from this little movie she made called For Lovers Only. I look up the trailer on youtube, and oh my god. OH MY GOD. It looks magnificent.

No, seriously, watch this trailer. I'll wait.

Legit. All I want to do for the rest of my life is watch this trailer, because the music is gorgeous and the filming is gorgeous and Stana looks radiant and the couple being shown looks adorable and they're in France and it's beautiful and OH MY GOD I NEED THIS MOVIE IN MY LIFE.

Turned out that the trailer is legitimately better than the film. The movie is... not great. It's beautiful to watch! The music is great! Stana Katic is actually radiant! But the dialogue is pretty bad, the story makes me want to eat a knife (cheaters! WHY ARE AFFAIRS SEEN AS ROMANTIC, THEY ARE TERRIBLE.)

So, anyway, that was a big disappointment in my life.


- Dr Quinn and I are on a break while I watch Castle. Apparently I OD'd on her judginess. This isn't a lemon curd situation, though, so I will return to it!

- Went into Paris yesterday with the sole intention of getting pancakes at this American-style diner place, but the wait would've been forever and we were right by this little coffee shop/bakery we like, so Katie and I went there instead. We then walked across the river and Katie got a really expensive coat and then she came back here with me and spent the night and I'm always so delighted when people are equally dorky as me. I don't mean dorky in a 'I love BSG way' (which, :( that would be awesome) but like, we sat around last night listening to Christmas music, and Katie riverdanced in the middle of my room because SHE ACTUALLY CAN DO THAT and it was a lot of lame fun.

- I write stories about couples that are never going to exist outside fic because they're not canon and it makes me sad sometimes but usually is makes me happy. (The latest trend in my fic-life is writing Sam and a Six. That is just... the way of it. I was about to say 'IDEK' but I absolutely K- it's Sam and a Six. Win-win!) Also, [ profile] kag523 is sweet enough to let me take her characters and run off with them, so there's that.

- FIFTEEN DAYS TIL I GO HOME. ELEVEN DAYS TIL MELISSA GETS HERE. These are exciting things! I'm also delighted with how comfortable I am here now.

- I know I say this almost every post I make on my LJ but seriously, I have such nice friends here. Sometimes my roommates can be whatever (and sometimes they can be awesome, like when Vasti made sure I had a good Thanksgiving dinner) but the friends I've made here are awesome. And one of them works in an American-style bakery that serves chocolate cake. CHOCOLATE CAKE, GUYS. Legit, real cake. It's glorious.

- I had a dream two nights ago that this popular British store called New Look had a store in my mall at home, and I went there... with EJO and Mary McDonnell. Like, of course. So I'm walking around the store with them looking for the shoes I want, and the Ed and McD start talking to one of the salesgirls. Eventually they mention (?) that they're famous, and the girl doesn't believe them, so both EJO and Mary start saying, 'Madi, get on the internet on your phone and show her. You can work the internet." It was entirely bizarre. Last night the end part of my dream involved me watching an old fashion show and Tricia showed up, both in person to talk to me and on the catwalk in the fashion show (that was possibly recorded? dream what even) and then Physically Present!Tricia was talking to me about the gold dress Catwalk!Tricia was wearing, and how it was her favorite and she kept it and actually it had a quote on it about how God has a plan and I was thinking, of course she'd like that one, because, you know, Tricia is Red, natch.

- My paid LJ account got extended a few weeks after all the DDoS attacks, but unfortunately my icons did not (D:) and I saw no reason to pay for one and not the other (D:) so now I'm only able to use a random selection and it is KILLING ME. I really shouldn't buy another year of paid LJ because it's really not financially sound, but this icon thing is slaying me. DON'T THEY UNDERSTAND?!

Do you like Alias? Do you like BSG? THEN CHECK OUT THE FIC [ profile] yahtzee63 WROTE ME, IT IS THE GREATEST THING OF ALL THINGS, So Say We All. You will find:

- Commander Bristow
- President Derevko
- Super Scientist Arvin Sloane
- Lieutenant Calfo
- and pilots Oracle, Shotgun, Outrigger, Houdini, Merlin, Shotgun and Phoenix.

I legitimately could not love it any more than I do.

So, aside from Melissa, who is special, and friends who originated as internet friends and then became real life friends through real-life encounters, none of my real-life friends know I read fanfic. Or write fanfic. Or, quite possibly, what fanfic even is.

Except my roommate Esther! She found fanfic two years ago and now reads Twilight fanfic, and while her choice of fandom horrifies me, I am still so delighted because... it justifies my reading it? It makes me feel slightly less nerdy? I don't know but I like!

Day 15 → A fanfic

I absolutely could not pick one. Also, it's a lot harder to me to find all the Alias fic I love, because when I first started reading it, I wasn't obsessive about keeping track of things. I mean, website archives were around forever, right? WRONG. Sometimes they disappeared, and took all the fic with it

Also, while compiling this list (namely, going to get the link for Jodhpur,) I found out that I favorited a BSG fic in 2007 on ff.n. And not just any BSG fic- a Gaius/Six BSG fic. In 2007. By an author who I have since seen on LJ, but I don't know her, and I didn't follow any of the other fandoms she wrote for on ff.n, and ESSENTIALLY THIS IS A BIG OLD MASSIVE MYSTERY and it is making me insane. HOW DID IT HAPPEN? Did I watch the entire series and then just forget it because I was... given selective amnesia? What is this nonsense!

Anyway. Fics!

I wrote a BSG/Mad Men crossover? I don't even know how this happened. There was the pornbattle, and all these feelings kept coming out, and then [ profile] nicole_anell wrote Caprica/Joan. And that was just... it for me, so I wrote this and I just can't even explain how it happened. (Except that it is a beautiful, magical pairing. THEY'RE BOTH THE BEST.)

So, sometime last month or so I started this cracktastic holiday fic. It's completely done now, but I'm not sure of the protocol regarding the posting holiday fic because... I've never done it. I haven't even really ever seen it, either. And since I have no opinion on it, and I'm sure other people do, I've decided to do a poll!

Never Will I Ever meme: Name three fics you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return, I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.

I can't imagine this will end well for me, but what the hell. Just try to keep it in fandoms I actually know.

From [ profile] yubsie:
List the first lines of your last twenty stories. See if you find any patterns.

First lines set the tone! )

In other news, I'm home! I also want to point out that, in true me fashion, because I am nothing if not predictable, every time I watch BSG again I love more and more people. The second time round it was Kara Anne Thrace, and this time it's the lovely Red, which I'm sure has something to do with [ profile] dollsome's mad crazy adoration of her.

Me: come this weekend i can curse again!
Me: :-D
Melissa: you can!
Melissa: you should read all kinds of inflammatory articles
Melissa: so you can get riled up

She is seven different kinds of awesome. In addition to reminding me to do the take-home portion of our exam (because I brilliantly spaced on it,) she's also studying with me tomorrow for the test for the French Commerce board. You know. In case I ever get a brain transplant and am capable of working in the business sector in France. The good news is, you need 55% to pass. The bad news is, I am really, really bad at business. So, we'll see how this goes. (Big exam, and, of course, I am getting sick. First my computer, now me. I will resist making cylon jokes, if only because they horrify me.)

I wrote fic for the first time in nine jillion years! Exquisitely Crafted, a Lauroslin/Papadama angstfest, because what else am I good for? Nada.

By and large, I consider myself I reasonably intelligent person. I mean, I'm in a pretty good university. I can hold my own in society. I'm not a total reject.

But there I am, for some god-forsaken reason, trying to upload a fic on ff.n- SOMETHING I MASTERED IN 2001, so, clearly, if I could do it at 13, I should be able to do it now, but no! Somehow it's all evil and weird and nonexplanatory, and I remember why I abandoned it pretty much entirely years and years ago.

(Help! I want to post! I want people to see that there is decent Alias fic out there, and currently being written!)
