Happy Mother's Day, awesome moms in my circle! &hearts

Remix reveals are up! I wrote no returns or exchanges (the equilibration remix), which was probably PAINFULLY OBVIOUS to everybody who read it. (Also it is true I haven't exactly inhaled everything from the archive yet, but you may have noticed my crafty radio silence regarding A:TLA remix stories, so EVEN MORE PAINFULLY OBVIOUS, no? xD)

... and now I shall go back to rereading Stealing Harry & Laocoon's Children, because HELLO NOSTALGIA.

Since my Arrival post is still in-progress, have some fandom babble!

1. Remix is live, as is Remix Madness! [community profile] dark_agenda has a list of chromatic Remix stories; please hop over and check them out if you're interested. As always, corrections and additions are welcome! :3 (Please note that we haven't collated the Remix Madness stories yet, though.)

Somebody chose to rework one of my old Good Omens stories; just (or not quite) like (girl afraid remix) is adorable and made me laugh so much, and just. &PEPPER;;;;;;; I miss this fandom kind of a lot right now! Maybe it's time to revisit it.

I haven't had the chance to do much reading yet... or, well, let me say rather that I haven't had time to compile links to my favorites yet. I will get to that, hopefully soon but definitely eventually. >.>

2. It is now May (already! wtf!), which means that the deadline for Potluck is just under two weeks away! You can submit links here or at the DW crosspost. Also, [personal profile] yiduiqie and I are still looking for hosts for future editions, so if you are interested, please get in touch with us!
glass_icarus: (Default)
There is officially Too Much going on and I'm still trying to finish this write-up, so have some links!

+ [personal profile] wistfuljane put together an awesome 2PM primer! :D
+ This year we have REMIX MADNESS, FUCK YES!!!

+ Link roundup from livrelibre and a disability-themed roundup from [personal profile] rydra_wong.
+ My (Iku/Doujou, insubordination) Toshokan Sensou prompt was filled over at the anime/manga/manhwa/manhua fest! N'awwww. &hearts
+ Speaking of the fest, [personal profile] ephemere coded up the shiny list of prompts and fills, WHICH EVERYBODY SHOULD GO FORTH AND OGLE. *g*
+ [personal profile] inkstone did an awesome FONSFAQ post for my Filipino folk dances prompt! *\o/*
+ [personal profile] troisroyaumes is hosting a FONSFAQ for manhwa!

My Remix is DONE! And POSTED!! Okay, not beta'd yet, but I am really really satisfied- and also pleased that I didn't squeak in as close to the wire as I was afraid I would. *g*

Fellow late-runners, I am cheering you on! *\o/* And also, er, begging for another set of eyes. Anybody up for it? I have time to return the favor now!
glass_icarus: (avatar: sokka got game)
OMG YOU GUYS. According to [personal profile] musesfool, only one person who signed up for Remix (as of a few hours ago, anyway) qualifies for A:TLA, which strikes me as a) astonishing and b) SADFACE! I was just going through my stuff to see if I qualify and it appears that I have in fact written enough commentfic to pass, but hey- I could always go another round for A:TLA! &hearts Plus, I still have this one way-overdue story on the backburner, so it'll be nice to kick my brain into writing-mode again.

Therefore: toss in your prompts! Come drabble with me! We have until Saturday before Remix signups close, and it is entirely possible to write enough to qualify if you're properly bunnied. ;D All it takes is seven 100+ word ficbits (or five 500+ word ficlets), and that's if you've never written anything in the fandom before! *tempts*

eta: fills!
+ [personal profile] crossedwires: Ty Lee, tightrope; crossover with Red Cliff

1. [personal profile] starlady: Japan: more information on the nuclear situation

2. [community profile] dark_agenda is running the Chromatic Remix 2011 drabblefest! This year's tag includes the list of characters and the prompts as well as the announcement post. :)

3. My thread at [community profile] help_japan, again- I'm offering a batch of icons.

(-- and speaking of icons, [personal profile] yiduiqie, will email you some more for Potluck tonight. orz)
glass_icarus: (saving face: wil bowl)
Haphazard linkspam, because I'll be spending the majority of the upcoming long weekend with a friend visiting from Singapore:

~ I am spoiled with Avatar love; [personal profile] crossedwires wrote a Sokka-and-Zuko bonding ficlet for me, me, me! xD We Can Make It If We Run is MADE OF WIN. &hearts

~ Also via [personal profile] crossedwires, Gene Luen Yang has a succinct comic of Why I Won't Be Watching the Last Airbender Movie.

~ N.K. Jemisin says Don't Put My Book in the African American Section.

~ On a related tangent, [personal profile] deepad's poll on the existential angst of book sorting has provided me with much glee, as has

~ this awesome Friend Like Me analysis by [personal profile] glockgal!

~ [personal profile] ephemere has posted a rough translation of Tabi Po, a gorgeous Filipino horror webcomic by Mervin Malonzo. *______*

~ [ profile] lgbtq_recs is starting up soon! Signups are here.

~ Also- closing a tab so old I nearly forgot about it- this article on translating China has been prodding me toward thinky thoughts.

~ And finally, some more Remix! some more Star Trek, Good Omens, SGA, Narnia, Dark is Rising )

Junjou Romantica and Azula fics are coming up next, in whatever order I manage to finish them! I'll also try to do my book-blogging post before I end up adding my six new library books to it, but no promises. &hearts


May. 25th, 2010 02:49 pm
glass_icarus: (avatar: momo)
Got done with Azula fic, or as good as done, and then realized I have timeline issues! /o\ (Brain spat it out in one big piece, but it might work better chopped in half? or bits?? or... augh.)

Also, I realize that I should probably put up another book-blogging post before I return to the library, but today is not going to be that day. Have some more Remix instead:

+ Merlin (+1 Firefly crossover)
- In My Place (the synchronised unicorns remix)
- To Command the Sea (the King of Camelot Remix)
- Talking Books and Burning Sticks (The Excellent Adventure Remix)
- Once and Future (the broken jaw of our lost kingdoms remix)
- Destroyer of Worlds
- Apple Princess (The Little Girls In Boxes Remix)

+ Star Trek:
- The Loudest Noise (affannato, affettuoso, agitato)
- Fleur de Lis (The Code of Honor Remix)
- Free, Freefalling (The Home Is Wherever I'm With You Remix)

And now I'm off to pick up some money! Money is good, especially when it's reimbursement money.
glass_icarus: (wave)
So I kind of sort of managed like 90% of that Azula fic at work today? and also exploded in glee over [personal profile] iambickilometer's Monk Gyatso + guru ficbit? and then came home and blew through all the recs you guys threw at me? /o\ WHAT IS THIS, IDEK. Clearly there is no help for me, but while I am caving to the madness, that love letter post is still open!

In other news, I read some happy-making remixes today!
+ Saiyuki:
- Ordinary Day: the Move It Or Lose It remix
- Where the Heart Is (The Eightfold Path is a Circuitous Route Home Remix)
- Love Is Goodbye (The We Will Become Stars remix)
- Fertile Ground (The Demon Seed Remix)

+ HP:
- Useless Talent (Sundial in the Shade Remix)
- black dog (clear, acoustic, live through this)
- How to Build a Home (Living in the Wilderness Remix)
- Impressions in the Dust (Nothing Left But History Remix)
glass_icarus: (hp: r/s small gifts 1)
+ Remix is up! \o/ Some most excellent soul decided to remix my teeny scarvesnhats ficlet, yesterday was blue, and I couldn't be happier: Familiar and Strange is just about everything I am a sucker for when it comes to Remus/Sirius! While I was the one who broke them apart, I'm so glad that my remixer decided to piece them back together (and oh, Sirius, I am so never going to get over you. :>).

+ Y'all, I have finished A:TLA aaaaand OMG SO READY FOR A REWATCH. :D :D :D &hearts! Also, I need fic recs NAO PLZ and um, possibly somebody needs to stop me from committing Azula fic before I'm even half done with my to-write list. >.> ALSO, because I know some of you are curious, it turns out I am a Zuko girl after all, though it did take me until season 3, heh. Apparently I am as predictable as ever?

+ Speaking of rewatches, [personal profile] crossedwires has a delicious picspam of Red Cliff, Part I! It is pretty much the perfect explanation of why I ship everyone/everyone in that movie.

+ .... OKAY, NO, CLEARLY I NEED MORE A:TLA SQUEE. Name a character and I will write them a love letter? ;)

eta; Toph, Sokka, Azula, Mai, Aang, Zuko, Iroh, Katara
glass_icarus: (google is my midnight lover)
+ PSA/signal-boost: The lovely [personal profile] magnetic_pole informs me that [ profile] api_recs could use some help, as she's going to be really really busy at the end of the month (and, alas, so am I). If anybody would like to organize and of course contribute to this year's recs week, it would be very much appreciated! [eta for post]

+ [personal profile] such_heights is hosting a vidding workshop this weekend over at [community profile] camelot_fleet! Slightly Merlin-slanted, but all are welcome to join in, no matter the amount of vidding experience. :)

+ Via [personal profile] the_future_modernes, YOUNG JOE BIDEN, OMG. *DED* Damn, but we have some pretty people in the White House.

+ [ profile] kinkme_merlin's Project Diversity is chock-full of fabulous prompts!

+ REMIX MADNESS IS ON, YOU GUYS. I AM EXCITE! [eta: on the backburner, apparently. Ah well, something to look forward to.]

+ What a Million Girls Would Kill For, by [personal profile] woldy: Devil Wears Prada, Emily-centric, awesome.

+ I know some of you may be interested in open alternatives to Facebook- and so, for that matter, am I! (Via [personal profile] zvi, I think.)

+ Via half the flist, the love child of John Sheppard and Adam Lambert apparently exists IRL. The obvious conclusion to be drawn from this is that fandom has some fucking scary superpowers, omg.

Annnnd now, back to writing. (CAN I GET UNSTUCK SOMETIME THIS YEAR PLEASE D:)
glass_icarus: (saiyuki: sanzo blur)
Happy Mother's Day! :) &hearts

My brain is apparently determined to stay off this weekend despite my best efforts to the contrary, therefore you get random things.

+ [ profile] stephiepenguin's The Last Rickshaw is a lovely Malaysian steampunk story! I really, really enjoyed it. :)

+ oh Diana Gabaldon no, a nice takedown by [ profile] sheafrotherdon. (Her previous posts are also goldmines of lulz and awesome, in case you haven't seen them already.) I still haven't bothered to read any of DG's posts, but the fandom responses? A++. &hearts

+ Via [personal profile] effex, Dancers Among Us, aka the incredibly gorgeous dance photos I have been ogling on and off since Friday. LOVE AND GLEE, y'all.

+ Is it possible to password-lock a youtube video the same way you can on Vimeo? Inquiring minds want to know!

+ I defaulted on Remix. :\ Life is being supremely uncooperative this year, so cheerleading from the sidelines it is, I guess! On the plus side, this means I uploaded some more stories to my AO3 account. (IT IS SLOW GOING, OKAY? I have trouble making decisions about how to handle things like seasonal drabbles, and which stories I like enough to preserve on the archive!)

+ eta: Japanese recast of Merlin, by [personal profile] fly_to_dawn! HOMG SO PRETTY.
glass_icarus: (hp: mwpp up to no good)
Mini HP-spam, while I'm waiting for my Advil to kick in:

+ JKR writes the Single Mother's Manifesto & is so completely awesome. *flails* Hat-tip to [personal profile] such_heights for the link!

+ The NIH's National Library of Medicine has an online exhibition up! Harry Potter's World: Renaissance Science, Magic, and Medicine isn't a terribly in-depth read, but it does have pretty pictures from old books (and links to education resources).

In other news: hello, remixer! :) Do with my stories what you will (although I apologize if you are here for Harry Potter and do not ship Remus/Sirius, heh). I am excited to see what you come up with!
glass_icarus: (saiyuki: 39 guns)
A new challenge is up at [community profile] dark_agenda: seven-day pre-Remix drabblefest ahoy! \o/ Also, there is a CoC masterlist for the qualifying Remix fandoms, in case any of you would like to get some inspiration and/or double-check to see that chromatic characters in your fandoms have not been overlooked.

i is back!

And really, really tired. Two bus rides in one day are draining, even if they were relatively short.

I know I promised y'all Minimerlin crime-scene updates, but I just could not swallow paying for hotel internet access after I had free wifi on my public transportation. I also failed on camera duty, but in my defense, 70s Fahrenheit weather, epic booze and hilarity, and collective fangirl glee makes a lot of distraction!

Things what happened this weekend, an incomplete list:
- two-part vid show of EPIC! ([personal profile] such_heights, I may or may not have made some very embarrassing squeaking noises at yours &hearts)
- booze
- hilarity
- booze and hilarity
- very loud public discussions of fandom, slash, embarrassing family/friend discoveries of gay porn on computer screens, and origami penises
- a certain discussion (of pain and hilarity and PAIN, DID I MENTION THE PAIN?) of Things That Are Not Lube
- a certain beaver quote that I cannot actually type because I am still busting a gut
- drunken porn-readings, complete with author DVD-style commentary BY A CERTAIN SOMEONE I AM NOT NAMING :D &hearts

In short, AWESOME FANGIRLS ARE AWESOME; also, all hail [ profile] puckling and [ profile] ras_elased for being amazing Queens of the Con. &hearts

-- ETA:
2. epic spoilery glorious Saving Face picspam by [personal profile] ciderpress = I AM SO FLAILY RIGHT NOW, Y'ALL DON'T EVEN KNOW. And for the record, I had a VERY FLAILY WEEKEND.
glass_icarus: (hp: puppy love)
I was thinking of locking this post for a while, but what the hell; John Cho deserves more pimping. So, a link for future reference: the (awesome) interview I am thinking about writing about, when I'm not so raw.

I've been reading [ profile] dogdaysofsummer and wanting to write, but at the same time, that giant lump of tired from IBARW hasn't worn off, and the peace (piece?) of mind I need just isn't there yet. Soon. Soon I'll have words again. ([personal profile] staraflur and [ profile] lizardspots are in town this week, which may accelerate the rebound. :D)

Which reminds me, it's time to do my remix repost.

Title: Tesserae (the Missing Pieces Remix)
Author: [personal profile] glass_icarus
Summary: Post-PoA. Sirius is picking up the pieces, but putting them back together requires help.
Rating: PG
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Remus Lupin/Sirius Black
Original story: When Love Took a Train Headed South by [ profile] gryffindor_j
Notes: To my beta/babble/think-tank crew- [ profile] reddwarfer, [personal profile] avendya, [ profile] ineffabili_tea- thank you so much. &hearts you all!

There are still twenty minutes before Remus is due to arrive, and someone’s abandoned the crossword section of today’s paper. )
glass_icarus: (hp: sbp squishy)
I am back from Maine! I was/am still afflicted with skin woes (which seem to be getting worse D:), but it was still a lovely, relaxing weekend. Picspam to come, when I manage to upload everything!

In other news, it's Remix reveal time! I wrote Tesserae (the Missing Pieces Remix), with the help of a small village. *g* Many thanks to [personal profile] reddwarfer and [personal profile] ineffabilitea for the hand-holding and advice/commentary through my insane babbleteims plotting sessions, and to [personal profile] avendya for the most excellent running beta! &hearts &hearts Also, extra thanks to [personal profile] ineffabilitea for the Latin grammar-picking, which was most helpful. :D

I will do a proper repost/recap soon, but that is... not going to happen today.

ETA: Also, everyone should go reread the way back to grace (moving on, moving up) and shower [ profile] lyras with love. :D Thank you so much for the lovely remix! &hearts
glass_icarus: (sleepy feet)
because i have finally got home from camping, and showered and fed and post-(half an episode of) Merlin-giggly as i am, my head is still exploding with tiredness. so! things!

- my remix is here, and for the first time it is not a Remus/Sirius story! i was SO EXCITED, you have no idea. the way back to grace (moving on, moving up), His Dark Materials, Will and Lyra and Pan and Kirjava, just the way i love to see them! i know that Remix is not actually an exchange-type fest, but i love it because it makes me see more (in my stories, in everyone else's stories) than i would ever have imagined otherwise, so. thank you, Remixer. your story was lovely. &hearts &hearts &hearts

- a discussion of ignorance and racism over at Seeking Avalon includes Avatar!fail, history!fail, and all sorts of other excellent points. i am depressed, and yet- and yet. i am more informed tonight than i was yesterday; i have followed one more logical thought-train than i did yesterday; and if i have done these things, then maybe there is hope that someone else will as well?

- still have TEN (10) DW invites, btw! i will be happy to donate them to whoever wants!

... i had other words, i think, but i forgot them thanks to the brain-goo that seems to be leaking from my ears. /o\ still, it was an excellent weekend, if tiring, and you should all feel free to hurl links my way if you feel i've missed something! &hearts
glass_icarus: (trek: live long & prosper)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to [ profile] whymzycal! *\o/* *\o/* For you, a return to that eternal question: Is the goldfish cosmic, or is the cosmos a goldfish?


Also, a couple of stories you may not have seen, following the theme of live long and prosper:
- Delta Delta Vega (or Dude, Bro) by [ profile] zarathuse
- untitled commentfic (in progress?) of AWESOME by [personal profile] karanguni [ETA: This has now been COMPLETED and REPOSTED! To The Enterprise: of Warp Barriers, Captains, and Other Scary Things *\o/* *\o/* GO! READ!]

AND, while we're talking crazy futuristic shenanigans, take a look at Project Natal! THE GAMING OF THE FUTURE, IT IS HERE. AND AWESOME. And... talking to you from your screen, and reading the shit you doodle on your piece of non-virtual paper, and. Yeah. Um. Am I alone in thinking that's also kind of freaky as hell?

Anyway, I hope you had an amazing day! &hearts :D


In other news, I signed up for Remix last night. Welcome back, insanity! &hearts
