1. RIP, Leonard Nimoy. Comments are open for Spock Prime celebration; I think we all could use some.

2. Leisure reading, I have missed you!! I finished Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo yesterday, which I really liked. Actual book-blogging is a bit out of reach at the moment, but maybe later...

3. In-person interview on Monday! Fingers crossed. :)

And now, back to food prep for tonight's dumpling party.

[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.
glass_icarus: (merlin: cunnilingus chicken)

glass_icarus: (french quarter)
Fandom + randoms!

+ [personal profile] musesfool's A:TLA squee post is indeed an instrument of joy- I love seeing A:TLA squee, y'all, and discussions never fail to put a big dorktastic grin on my face. Putting this here specifically so I remember to get back to it!... eventually. Hopefully. /o\

+ Via [personal profile] crossedwires: SULU-OFF! STAR TREK FANDOM, I HAVE NEW SHINY LOVE FOR YOU ALL OVER AGAIN. *____*

+ Guinevere of Rohan by [livejournal.com profile] felix_aeternus is gorgeous, omg.

+ The inestimable [personal profile] woldy wrote an amazing HP fic! Chasing Charlie is delightful, I haven't enjoyed reading Harry-POV fic this much in a very long time.

+ A Subversive Expression of Resistance is a fabulous interview with Marlon Hom on the poetry of Chinese immigrants detained at Angel Island.

+ Yakuza 3 reviewed by yakuza, via I think [personal profile] effex?

glass_icarus: (birds)
Link-basket today, since I cannot think.

+ [livejournal.com profile] rawles: a quick note (erasing women from the narrative is never feminist)

+ [personal profile] ephemere: What we remember (on Imelda Marcos; Listen: every time you reduce Imelda to frivolity and excess, you spit on countless unnamed graves.)

+ [personal profile] yeloson: Privilege hates, but doesn't know what hate is

+ [livejournal.com profile] fiction_theory: The internet IS real life

+ [personal profile] deepad: On talking and not about Israel and Palestine

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. *______*

~ [livejournal.com 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

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: (zoe saldana)
AAARGH. Arizona is still number one on my list of States to Excise From Maps With a Plastic Knife right now, but Texas is making a good bid from second place. >:(

Happy things:

+ I finally started watching Avatar: The Last Airbender last night! I didn't get past the first two eps since the rest got removed from the site I found them on, boo. On the other hand, [personal profile] crossedwires's A:TLA recast is now that much more awesome.

+ I have also caught up with Uragiri wa boku no namae wo shitteiru! Which, okay, is possibly a bit ridiculous, but I don't care because it is hitting my character/relationship kinks so hard. SO SO HARD. ([livejournal.com profile] ruffwriter, let me know when you has time and we will repeat the epic gchat flail!watching of doom, y/y??? ;D)

+ [personal profile] viklikesfic wrote a Zoe Saldana/John Cho commentfic, WITH ZOE ON TOP. UNF. *____*

+ [personal profile] leupagus's Only Good for Legends, which I finally got around to finishing yesterday. *\o/* Spooooock, omg. (And Uhura, and Kirk, and T'Pring, and that George/Winona backstory offshoot, and and and- &hearts) Star Trek fandom, sometimes I love you LOTS. :>
glass_icarus: (french quarter)
week of win, day 3;

It's a Trek-heavy kind of day, apparently!

+ Total Eclipse of the Heart- William Shatner and Lin Yu Chun

+ Zoe Saldana talks Spock/Uhura

+ An old interview with George Takei and Masi Oka:

+ Nano Trek!

+ For the New Yorkers: Columbia University's hosting a panel discussion on Asian Americans in the fashion industry this coming Sunday, as a part of APAAM (Asian Pacific American Awareness Month)! Tickets are only $5, and can be purchased here. (Some details can also be seen at angry asian man, for those of you who don't like Facebook.)

So the last 48 hours have been kind of a one-two punch of fail, or something; I really, really did not need to know that people anywhere were this kind of asshole, much less government officials in my country. Newsflash: nuclear war? ALSO NOT A SUBJECT FOR ~IRONY~!

... yeah, um. It's a good thing I'm going out tonight- I can dance away all this aggression. Here, have a happyspam:
&hearts Via [livejournal.com profile] yeloson, Miyoko Ihara's photos of her grandmother and her cat! SO ADORABLE OMG.

&hearts Being by Zanele Muholi, a series of beautiful photographs of black lesbian women in South Africa.

&hearts Nichelle Nichols coauthored a gen OTT short story in Star Trek: The New Voyages 2? I didn't know that! I may have to rethink my decision to not jump into Trek books now, hm.
glass_icarus: (saiyuki: 39 guns)
+ [livejournal.com profile] camelotsolstice reveals are up, which means I can tell you all that I wrote gang aft agley for [livejournal.com profile] netgirl_y2k (aka that gen/OT4 drunk!fic where Merlin and Morgana finally spill)! Also, I can now thank the small village it took to write this story: [livejournal.com profile] woldy, for the initial meandering conversation that I took inspiration from in the first place; [livejournal.com profile] kelene, who was there to cheerlead when it mattered most; [personal profile] ineffabilitea, who picked up on my faulty word choice/POV issues; and [personal profile] such_heights, who was an awesome beta-on-the-fly and thus put up with a far higher spam-quota than any human being should suffer. *g* &hearts to you all, and also to [livejournal.com profile] issahime, who wrote me Shiloh!

+ [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti ficlets are coming soon! I plan to finish writing both of them tonight. Anybody interested in looking them over, sometime within the next 24 hours? &hearts

+ I am to do quick book write-ups for yesterday's binge, and you are all to hold me to that, okay? *g*

+ In other news, [personal profile] bossymarmalade's got some awesome ficlets up! Star Trek and Holmes, among others; go and read! :D :D &hearts

+ In other other news, today's [community profile] linkspam includes two interesting discussions on historical AUs: You don't have to go looking for this stuff, it just traipses across your reading page, you guys, by [personal profile] zvi, and History without oppression?, by [personal profile] naraht. These posts reminded me of [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon's The Stories We Tell, although the fic that sparked that essay was in an entirely different fandom/historical context.

recs today

because these are amazing and i am trying to distract myself from my lack of Advil:

- Graduate Vulcan for Fun and Profit, by [livejournal.com profile] lazulisong: Reboot!gen, utterly glorious. seriously, i have been dying for genfic like this. &hearts

- you must remember this, by [livejournal.com profile] seperis: Merlin, NC-17, Arthur-centric mythology fusion. creepy and spectacular in all the best ways.
glass_icarus: (to hear)
Coworker's played-list so far today has gone something like this: Lady Gaga --> Mary J. Blige --> Daughtry --> LOTR soundtrack (just another normal day in the lab...), therefore I give you meme responses. What? Randomness makes me think of random things.

OTP-meme answers so far:

[personal profile] heathershaped & [personal profile] eumelkeks asked for Merlin: )

[personal profile] such_heights and [livejournal.com profile] woldy asked for HP: )

[livejournal.com profile] ruffwriter asked for Havemercy-verse: )

[livejournal.com profile] moshesque asked for Saiyuki: )

I am totes willing to keep answering if you guys keep throwing fandoms at me! *g* I have LOTS of them. Also, have a rec! Via [livejournal.com profile] secretsolitaire: Between the Bars by [livejournal.com profile] hollycomb [Reboot; Sulu/Chekov; R]. IT IS GLORIOUS. GLORIOUS, I TELL YOU.
glass_icarus: (junjou: akihiko hiroki [JR artbook])
it is beautiful outside after yesterday's all-day Rain of Doom, so have a list of happy things:

- [personal profile] karanguni is killing me with Reboot goodness these days: New, and Stumbling Forward! &hearts &hearts &hearts SPOCK. LOVE. THAT IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW.
- i spent, uh, all of last night/this morning mainlining Darker than Black! MADE. OF. AWESOME. and also, OMG HEI &hearts &hearts &hearts *GLEEFACES* if any of you guys have watched the anime, BRING ON THE SQUEE. :D
- have started (finally) on one of my [livejournal.com profile] springkink fics! it is only exposition so far, but, uh, yay for exposition?? *g*
- it's partyteimz this weekend: random bbq invite of random to be followed by birthday party tonight, and then free outdoor salsa party tomorrow evening, with possible kayaking/park expedition in the afternoon! oh, summer, how i love thee.
- i went to the library today, for the first time in ages! borrowed for consumption either tonight or tomorrow in the park: Neil Gaiman's Stardust, Meredith Pierce's Darkangel (i have been meaning to reread this one for ages). \o/!

i hope you're all enjoying your weekend!
glass_icarus: (ofelia)
01. FIRST THINGS FIRST! i have pimped this one already, but seriously, guys- if you have not read [personal profile] karanguni's awesome Reboot!fic of awesome, you should totally get on that RIGHT. NOW: To The Enterprise: of Warp Barriers, Captains, and Other Scary Things. Scotty! Spock! Kirk! Chekov &hearts! fans of ensemble-fic and/or the science/engineering-type geekery, eat your heart out. :D

02. watched Angels & Demons last night, which was pleasantly entertaining, if necessarily more graphic than the DaVinci Code. Ewan McGregor = best casting choice ever for the camerlengo, yum. &hearts :D i wasn't as absorbed in it as i was in the DaVinci Code, probably because Angels & Demons was a more interesting book than the DaVinci Code and i therefore remembered more plot points, etc. still, it was a good movie; i'd definitely watch it again, though i wouldn't pay money to do so. *g*

03. adding to the reclist because i had an episode of book!glee yesterday, thanks to [personal profile] yasaman's recent mention of Santa Olivia )

speaking of my reclist, some other books i forgot to add: )

how are you guys faring this week?
glass_icarus: (trek: live long & prosper)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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
glass_icarus: (trek: live long & prosper)
before i go to bed early in an attempt to catch that free AI concert tomorrow, a collection of the awesome i have been subjected to today!

&hearts Merlin macros of WIN, by [livejournal.com profile] franticsga
&hearts Uhura macro & Star Trek: TOS, kindly linked to me by [personal profile] skywardprodigal
&hearts [personal profile] such_heights's Reboot!delicious which is comprised of FICS MOST EXCELLENT
&hearts Reboot icons posts at [community profile] icontent, which are hilarious and fab!
