To Have Outlived the Night - Part ICollapse )

Anybody willing to be on deck to pre-read and/or beta Teen Wolf fic about Derek and Stiles and their terrible, fantastic, dovetailing issues? It's not quite done - I've got 3 scenes to fill out further, and some obsessive editing to do - but it ought to be there in the next day or so. No spoilers past aired canon, no specific deadline, and likely about to be Jossed to hell on Monday anyway. Also, it's already 20,000 words. I should probably mention that part, right?

So... Bueller?
Things I love about Teen Wolf (or, why my summer vacation included a show on MTV set around a bunch of werewolves in high school):

Don't be fooled that this is going to be some well thought-out piece of eloquence. It's pretty much just ramble-y flailing and an overlong treatise on architecture. Also, there are spoilers going up through all aired eps, but nothing beyond them save for personal speculation. Also also, trigger warnings for canonical implied abuse of a minor.

Okay? Okay.

Here we go!Collapse )

Other specific things that I enjoy:

1. The housesCollapse )

2. The castCollapse )

3. The characters (with bonus tangent on my dream AU)Collapse )

I love the feeling that they're all growing into this complicated, epic future for themselves. Who knows if they'll get there, but I'm enjoying the heck out of this show right now for what it is.

GAH.

Because my first PhD committee meeting was this morning (ultimately fine but frustrating as hell along the way), and because the damn state is on fire and my smoke-hating, asthmatic lungs have had me gasping like a stupid goldfish for two days:

I have heard the words "assemble your committee" a lot lately, and every single time I flash to the Avengers and giggle a little bit. (I am secretly 12, and easily amused.) Really, though, the movie!verse team would be the worst academic body ever. I mean, picture these people being responsible for creating a unified, clear plan of study to be completed in a reasonable period of time. Yeah. 

more on thatCollapse )

So, how would other fandoms fair? Would Arthur and his knights make you want to staple them to the conference table? Would nightmarish qualifying exams be Lestrade's division? Would Rodney and John manage to remember it's a committee, not a yo-yo?

Come on, distract me. The world owes me giraffe funtiems for this week, and I can't collect until tomorrow. What's the worst fannish academic committee you can come up with? (Or the best, for that matter.) 

Neat things!

I continue to be slow like a glacier and behind on pretty much everything, but here are two very cool bits of fandom which you all may or may not already know about.

First, podfic! erica_schall recorded Practical Adventures and Auspicious Pursuits (a.k.a. the Merlin one with the goats) in English, and then for double awesome points she also did it in German. Both audio versions are up here, and the written translation is here. Her voice is fabulous and the recording quality is amazing and the way she does Arthur's speaking voice alone cracks me right the heck up. My story is now this entirely new thing! In multiple languages! How cool is that? *g*

And second, after much flirtation with Sherlock, eccentric_hat has written fic! This is a big deal, because her writing is always brilliant and lovely, and now it is brilliant and lovely and Sherlock-flavored. There is no bad here. Household Maintenance is a gorgeous look at how Sherlock thinks, and sneakily also at how he feels. 

So, yeah. If you haven't already, go check these out, so that you, too can be a-cackle with glee. *g*
It only took me a week, right? In my defense, it’s been a crazy week.

Once again, all the spoilers. Ever.Collapse )

Huh. I really thought I wouldn’t manage to say much beyond "*flail*" about this one. Go figure. Now, back to processing via writing all the fic I can handle, and finally getting to read everyone else’s reactions.

In summary: Is it Series Three yet? Now?

...How about now?

Sherlock Squee Central v. 2.01

There will be much capslocking, incoherent babbling, and gratuitous use of the words "I love ____" ahead. I'm kind of counting it as a win that I've regained the use of full sentences, really.


ALL THE SPOILERS IN THE WORLDCollapse )


In summary: THIS SHOW, GUYS. <3

Oh, and: I remain unspoiled for everything in the rest of this series aside from episode titles, so for the love of all that is holy, please don't tell me anything. Thanks.
