I am not the only one whose first umpulse after waching a movie/show is to find the kink meme, am I?

RELATE ME! When you think of me, what is the first thing that pops into your mind related to me in the following 10 categories:

TV Show:
Other LJ user:
The first word you think of when you think of me:

Busy as hell in RL with event prep and other stuff. SUffice to say there is drama but when is there not?

and yeah the OFC fest is still on my mind too.
arabwel: (crabby)
Ok since the idea seems to be drumming up support - here is the Idea Post for an OFC fanfic fest.

OCs are often necessary for fic. There are a lot of fandoms where it is really hard to write fic without having OCs around - for example, any villain-of-the-week show, If you want to write an episodelike fic, recycling just the old villains get old after a while. Or if you want to write an epic fic with stuff that an already epic word has not explored - you will need OCs. Like, people's old friends and parents and new villains and so on.

Say, you want to write a Leverage casefic. In an average episode, we get the victim(s),the Big Bad, the henchmen, innocent bystanders who get conned, the potential law enforcement involvement, the folks at McRory's - and let's face it, some of them are likely to be women. And cue the cries of mary sue and badness. Especially if the canon flirt Eliot hits on one of them.

If the episode Two Live Crew was a fanfic? Far too many people would have branded Eliot's Distaff Counterpart Mikal as a mary Sue. Pretty? check. Badass Israeli? check. Able to mach Eliot? check. UST? check. Obviously asue right?

There is a lot of fic that doesn't get written because people are afraid theitr OCs will be labeled sues. Hell, I know I have a lot of fics I am not writing because I am worried about that label myself - of people flat out refusing to read something I write because it has the evil original female character. And that? that is not okay in my book. Not any more. I refuse to let the fear of teh Sue, internalized misogyny and misguided peer pressure dictate what I write and read.

So what I am saying is - i want to run a fest celebrating original female characters. Multi-fandom, gen or ship, any-length, fic art and everything else fest. Celebrating the fact that there's a lot of awesome worlds out there and awesome people whom we can create to exist in those worlds. (that is.. once nanowrimo is over)

I don't know what to call it, I don't know what to do with it, but dammit, I want to do it, and I will do it. Who's with me?

Why do I want to find and if there isnt one, to run a fic festr celebrating the most maligned of fanficland' creatures, the OFC?

Cause let' face it - there are a lot of how qwhere it i really hard to write fic without having OCs around - for example, any villain-of-the-week show, if you wnat to write an episodelike fic, recycling jsut the old villains get old after a while. Or if you want to write an epic fic with tuff tha tan already epic word has not explored - you will need OCs. Like, people's old friends and parent and new villains and so on.

Am I the only one, guys? Cause I love as-kicking OFCs hard.
arabwel: (Default)
Stolen from all over the place:

produce a list of 100 female characters you love, think are awesome, love to hate, etc, etc.

Here are mine - and this list is by NO means complete!

Cut cause, you know, long list.

so. I may havesaid this before but the reason I originally got into Deche Mode?

Someone songficced most of violator with Angel/Xander fics and I found the album in the local library, go it and went "Oooh shiny!" about it.

Now.. well, I googled the fics themselves easy enough. (I am on a slight Buffy kick atm) and I wanted to get in touch with the author so I could thank them for introduing me to DM.

Of course, there is no contact info for the author that I can find. *shakes head* this of course is in no way a surrise - I read these stories and got into DM back in... 2000, 2001. Somwehere in that region.

It both makes me feel really damn old "wow where did all the time go?" and sad that eole can jsut.. disaear like that.

But.. yeah. This is one reason why songfics should be celebrated. They sread good music.

Guys, educate me.

WTF is "sticky"? XD
arabwel: (Default)
So, I have been reading a lot of meta on STXI's female characters/lack of and then copios amounts of genderflippy pr0n at the kink meme.

Of course this leads to thinky thoughts.

I thought "Who haven't we genderflipped?" Pretty much. And came up on...

Captain Robau.

This made me think. He could very well have been a female captain in the movie. Same level of pic badassery, right? (note: I have no bloody clue what was established about him in ToS/Novel canon, i am going by Memory Alpha here)

And then I thoght about it.

No. It wold not happen that wah. She would not have been a Memetic Badass. In fact, she would get many, many complaints. Basicay smming up girl!Robau as "disposable woman" instead of any kind of memetic badas.

And that? Is epic suck.

I donöt realy know what to say about this. Other than it aqnnoys me, it sucks, and smacks of doble standard. I am not very goo with thinky thoghts I canpt rally rticlate well al the implications of this paticlar what-if.

In other bnews, cleaned up the apartment a bit, cooked some chikcen curry, and in general had a good day.

Now, as an alledged grown up I actually a) get more of the jokes and the vocabulary that i was missing earlier abnd b) KNOW what the music is that they are listenint to (Iggy Pop, anyone?)

and of course, ahve realized that I am quite the Cynthia. *facepalm*

(will elaborate ont aht later. Must, really, since is fascinating. And boy am I glad I didn;t run into [livejournal.com profile] hippediva> those dyas despite us freqquwenting the same corners of fandom, cause sdshe owuld have eaten me alive and not in a good way> I was a fabnbrat, through anfd through, thank $Deioty I grew out of it! 0

But yeah, right now>? Most stuff is good.

ESPECIALLY my new blanket *cuddles blanket mentally since it is at home* king size fuzzy mink blanket. 21 eyros at guineys. Guess CreepyD was good for something! :P

on top of that, or shoudl I say unde rit, some hot water bottles. Heating not working> What heating? *grin*

Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] theladyfeylene

If my life/LJ were a TV Show, who on my Flist would you pair me with? Why? What kind of fic would you write about us? Be creative!

And yes, I am aware that my Flist has canon relationships, but we're talking in fandom terms, so those mean nothing to fans :P

Even google can fail. (cause i sure as hell don't think the HP fandom will!)

In other news, I am sick and tired and don't wanna deal with having to go to tyrrelstown to clean and make sure I did in fact get everything and.. ugh. *sigh*

Work is going ok. a slow day. Good, compared to yesterday cause yesterday? It was hell. But I am rather fucking good at what I do. In fact, i am fucking awesome.

or at least I keep telling myself that. *snort*

hmm, hmm

So today, work was pretty decnet. so i fucked up a biut in the morning but as a whole? I am a fucking ace. Seriouls - if I keep this up, my stats should be good enopugh for some seriou cred if I try to change teams, or if I do something else interesting like switch jobs.

after work, city center, sitting itn he park with NBodis, alls orts of usual things. was hoping I could see Googleboy, but he is busy. i admit, I woul love a chance to spend time with him outide theusual brux/Dominion circit because a) lack of noise = easioer to talk and b) the lesser drama potential. *shrugs* that, and for once not bein drunk, that woudl also be good.

In genral, I do not see my friends outside clubs enough. It was fn at the park today. It hs been fun having coffee with ZOi. i want.. some semblane of normalcy, I suppose.

Other than taht.. anyone got good HP fic featuring Tom Riddle to rec?
arabwel: (facepalm)
Why is it that my brain is demanding me to vid when I jsut CAN'T? It is not something I know how to do! *sigh*

... and it is such a dumb ideea. A Star Wars vid done to Aces High. Cause, dogfights in space, dude.

From [livejournal.com profile] fabu:

This weekend, pick out three of your favorite writers, those you’ve been reading regularly --- probably for *years* ---and send them a private note telling them you’re out there. Just that. Even if you’ve never, ever done it before. Even if you write yourself. (And YES, if you’re reading this, I mean YOU).

arabwel: (Don't wanna)
so I should do a ton of stuff today. likego refuill my scroipts and so on but.. too tired and hurty. therefore, iw ill not do ti and rather will just.. sit around and do stuff. Like the damn dishes.

tomorrow, I will need to go see a dentist-type person. mom is going to be over, too. see the importace of cleaning there? *sigh*

but, seem to be past writer's block. i am working on more of the silly self-insertiness.. and I suspect there will be Lordific up soon. more of the Toys-verse. (and incidentally, I wrote some pondreriungs about it in [livejournal.com profile] feminist_fandom and got [livejournal.com profile] metafandomed. *gulp* I hope I wonöt come off as a complete retard... ) and what was the meta about Awa. and the fact that in toys-verse she is giving my inner feminist a ton of gray hairss. *sigh* any of you guys have something to say on the matter?

other than that.. hmm, I donöt suppse that there relaly is anything myuchly of note going on. except that I nee dmoney and some of my travel plans gotroyally messed up. I have a week and a halfduring whch I am hanging on nothing - rigth now, looks like it is from Oct 12th to oct 22nd that I am going to be needing somewhere to settle. Any of you guys willing to put up with me in that timeframe? Even a few days would be great - Hopping around to meet people = cheaper than staying anywhere that I have to pay for anyway. I offer madcooking skillz, yo :)

So. Feeling much better, still nto healthy tho. jsut berter. Which might change, but right now? feeling goodsome and so on.

Writing pr0n, as you might guess. have one story finished, just needs a title.... titles arre the absolutely worst part of writing. I SUCK with them.

the Game was a ecent mmovie. watched it yesterday. Liked it.

And am now even more eager to learn about the glory of TrnsFOrmers, if only because I want to know what the real deal is, not the... umm... tentacle-y penis-y tongue-aimed-at-little-girls-y thing that seems to bve making people gag over at F_W.

guyess that is all for now. Back to writing pr0n.

OH, except that I am out of toast and this saddens me greatly.
