1. She Keeps Me Warm: Saving Face vid from Festivids! ♥ ♥

2. Successfully met up, caught up, and generally nerded around with zouk friend A during his stopover yesterday, despite his lack of a winter coat and the generally disgusting weather. It's been a long time since I've talked music with anyone! We also spent a significant amount of time poking around the performing arts branch of the NYPL (by Juilliard, of course). Must go back to investigate more *___*

3. How Generous Are You Willing To Be? I'm working on communication this year, but I think I've just found my intention for next year.
"How generous are you willing to be? How generous are you willing to be with your whole life? Will you share yourself with us? With the world? Do you dare? Or are you just going to hold yourself tightly in, hold these long arms and legs all to yourself?

"Are you just going to be stingy? Just keep yourself to yourself for the rest of your life? In case you fall? In case you fail? In case you make a fool of yourself? In case we see how imperfect you are?

"OR: are you going to choose to just be generous anyway? To just take up as much space as you actually take up? To be as big, as graceful, as long, as gorgeous, as enormous as you actually are?"

And now, back to work!

[livejournal.com profile] fandomaid is doing a buy it now fundraiser to support those affected by Typhoon Haiyan (donation information here). Since I'm usually terribly slow about filling fic requests*, I've offered 3 sets of up to 25 icons here (A:TLA, Saving Face, Love Actually, Star Trek Reboot, or non-fandom).

*Speaking of which, I am still working on the treat meme prompts. My writing-brain is slow to start, ugh.

because it is MOON FESTIVAL. Happy 中秋節/추석/Trung Thu/Lantern Festival/Mid-autumn Festival! :D &hearts I am opening drabble requests (again! despite my to-write list!) in celebration, so in the event that anybody wants Saving Face, or Avatar, or more Cho Chang, etc., you've got about 12 hours to spam me with prompts. I won't promise to finish all of them as I am only allowed to faff off RL things for tonight, but hey- if you see something you'd like to write, feel free to jump in!

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 [livejournal.com profile] puckling and [livejournal.com profile] ras_elased for being amazing Queens of the Con. &hearts

Happy Chinese/Lunar New Year!

Celebratory things:
&hearts Amazing Saving Face CNY fanart by [personal profile] sqbr!
&hearts eating hearts and linkspam by [livejournal.com profile] stephiepenguin!
&hearts All-fandom New Year of the Tiger party, hosted by [personal profile] dhobikikutti!


I don't do Valentine's Day; I am not, have never been, will never be one for the candy hearts and flowers. The red that I am wearing today is mine, to welcome the tiger (my mother's and mine) with teeth and claws.

Last night we had nuò mǐ xiè and yóu jī, qié zi bǎo and fried fish, although we substituted yóu cài for the spinach that we forgot to buy, and... yeah. NOM. The traditional leftovers are even more plentiful than usual! *g* This year is a little strange- my dad went to Flushing to buy most of our dinner last night, circumventing our usual cookathon; my sister is away for a grad school interview and won't be back until tonight; and I even forgot to put my hóng bāo under my pillow- but it is still the new year, and I am home with my family, and we're making huǒ guō tonight. Later, maybe, I'll see if anyone wants to go to the parade in Chinatown; for now, I am going to enjoy the last of the white wine I brought home from Maine and the red-and-gold firecrackers exploding in my heart. :)

Okay, anybody who knows me probably knows that my love for this movie is completely and totally epic... so most of you won't be surprised to hear that wayyyy back in October, I claimed Saving Face for [livejournal.com profile] choc_fic's 100 Days of Color. Hence, a pimp post! :D

not very plot-spoilery picspam! )

In case you haven't been convinced by the above, there is also fic from Yuletide this year! Three of these stories were written for me, and the last one I wrote as a treat. The first story is the one I'd recommend as a taster, though. &hearts ;)

- Yum Cha
- The Last Gasp of Chivalry
- Spice of Life
- eating together
glass_icarus: (wild adapter: kubotoki)
- More racist cover art shenanigans from Bloomsbury. Seriously, after last year's uproar over whitewashing Justine Larbalestier's Liar? I just... I've got nothing. This shit was already brought to their attention. Publicly. REPEATEDLY. What is there left to say?

+ I should be working on my ficlets for [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti, but... I reread Volume 6 of Wild Adapter this morning (UNF. Hi Minekura-san, you win at hotness forever~ &hearts), and suddenly I want to write Osamu/Ryunosuke. So much. Those last panels! SURELY THIS ALREADY EXISTS ON THE INTERNET. RIGHT? RIGHT??? ;___; Also, I miss Kubotoki a LOT.

+ Things what I also want to write: Saving Face. ANYTHING Saving Face. I mentioned it at [livejournal.com profile] springkink, but I kind of don't want to wait for requests to show up. I am trying to resist opening a prompt post, but IT IS DIFFICULT WHEN I KEEP THINKING OF THIS



I know. My life, so hard.

Happy new year, loves! :)

We spent the night at home, my sister and I, with cheap lobster and unopened wine, nearly sleeping through the last few seconds of 2009. (Our parents rang in the new year at Taipei 101, in the company of old and rarely-seen friends- a getaway that they fully deserve, although my dad remains chained to his work and his laptop.) I passed the time watching CSI and NCIS and (ha) The Replacements rather than any of the new year's countdowns, and was quite content with that.

2009: me and you )

Anyway! Moving right along, here's a fandom/writing retrospective:

Fic )


On race )

Phew. Apparently I wrote a lot more than I thought I did. *g* Icons and more Yuletide recs to come later!

ETA: Yuletide reveals! This year my assigned story was five exercises in aggravation {Junjou Romantica), and I also wrote eating together (Saving Face) for Yuletide Madness. I find it inordinately amusing/amazing that all of the Saving Face fic this year was written either for or by me. &hearts &hearts xD
