minkhollow: (end *all* the worlds?)
Well, this is it.
So long, LJ, and thanks for all the fish. I'll still comment (when I can, mutter grumble) but I'm done crossposting.
Meanwhile, Fic Friday!

minkhollow: (leap of faith)
What I should be writing: Novel, Yuletide treats, plottish stuff for Milliways' Christmas Carol plot.
What I'm writing instead: Further Warehouse 13/Once Upon a Time Hogwarts AU shenanigans. (Yes, both at once. Ruby insisted on being part of Claudia's story.)
Because I'm enjoying this, have a snippet of Ruby getting her wand:
Ruby shrugs uncomfortably, and Granny’s mouth goes all thin, but Mr. Ollivander carries on having Ruby try wands like he hadn’t trodden on someone’s grave. )
minkhollow: (what is this i don't even)
Quiet Thanksgiving here, and really, that's okay by me. (What I'm thankful for: All of you lot, quality entertainment, and [personal profile] quinby most especially.)
Meanwhile, Fic Friday!
write all the one-sentence fic? )
More as it develops!
minkhollow: W13: Claudia playing guitar (doesn't remind us of musetta's waltz)
This week in short:
*My Yuletide assignment is Very Nearly Done (there's one last bit Quinn's helping me with), and I've lined up a beta. And I have an idea for a treat!
*Once Upon a Time catch-up happened; I'd fallen three episodes behind and then was told Sunday's was ALL THE RED FEELS, so I caught up on Tuesday. ALLLLLLL THE RED FEELS. :D :D :D :D :D
*Quinn's back decided to go 'hey, so that chair you were sitting in yesterday? NO ME GUSTA.' Officially diagnosed as a muscle strain (I'm just glad it wasn't a kidney stone).
*And then I went to do laundry and THE PRICES WENT UP. Previously I could get four loads out of a typical six out of a roll of quarters; now it's three, with a random dollar left over. CANNOT EVEN. I might have to start combining sheets/towels with something, if I can cram all that into the washer.
Meanwhile, Fic Friday! (For newcomers: Twitter fic! Prompts given and filled on Twitter. Some of these are Milliways- or other-RP-inspired crossovers.)
lots of things, including some of those Red feels )
minkhollow: (leap of faith)
LJ, LJ, LJ. Will you ever learn? There are new beta shenanigans afoot, and it's... well. I'll let it speak for itself. (Also, guess what they first rolled out in public on the Russian side of things?)
My favorite comment is from one of said Russian users (I love Chrome's translate button): "If this is your idea of a joke, you have a very poor sense of humor."
Given that, I think I'm going to stop crossposting to LJ effective November 30th. It's my 10th LJversary; there's something nicely symmetrical about that. Still trying to figure out what that means for lower_tadfield, but I'll consult the comm first, whatever it is.
In happier news, there wasn't much Fic Friday (now technically Fic Saturday, but whatevs), but it did happen!
Fic inna sentence! So fresh the... I dunno how to sustain this. )
minkhollow: (leap of faith)
Someone hit the car (parked in the parking lot, fortunately; no witnesses, but that makes it a little easier in attempting to run down leads) the other day. Back bumper's badly beaten, but hey, at least the car still drives.
But mostly: ARGH. (On the other hand, I've done a hell of a lot of Calling People I Don't Know over the last couple days. For me, that's a big thing.)

Meanwhile, Fic Friday!
in which fics are written on Friday )
minkhollow: (end *all* the worlds?)
I disapprove of plagues. Just saying. Am on to the 'nasty-sounding cough' stage of this illness's entertainment, which at least means it's on its way out, but still.
Meanwhile, Fic Friday!
a smattering of fandoms )
minkhollow: (leap of faith)
This week: Alllll of the campaign sojourns, rereading Good Omens, and... actually the church down the street is a pretty nice place. (I'm mostly there as Quinn's moral support, but I already like it better than anywhere else I've gone.)
(Also, the apple turnovers (NOOOO) last week? They were good. Twitter got to see my DRAMATIC SWOON for silliness purposes.)
Meanwhile, Fic Friday!
Once Upon a Time, Villains By Necessity, Warehouse 13 (one with implied Milliways), Disc, OUaT/XMFC, Greek mythos (Percy flavor optional) )
minkhollow: (end *all* the worlds?)
WE HAVE A GABBY. GABBYS ARE COOL.
Burning rice and stuffing up the sink is... less so. We need to go to the grocery anyway; Drano will be procured then. (I wonder if it's finished draining from my quick run of dishes yet...) There will be apple turnovers tonight (NOOOOOOOOOOOO).
Meanwhile, Fic Friday!
Potterverse, Percyverse-flavor Greek mythos, W13, W13/Disc, OUaT/XMFC )
More as it develops!
minkhollow: Robert Redford pointing, from Sneakers (sometimes i don't understand myself)
Finally managed to post my Yuletide nom list (protip: you can temporarily plusify a basic account, ?style=mine long enough to do what you need to do, and re-basic). I'm going for Villains By Necessity, Bell Book and Candle, and Sneakers (let's get some 20th-anniversary action up in here!); I'll just have to pray one of my possible fourths makes it in.
Campaign season's gearing up, and I'm going to help Quinn do a lot of the things. Meanwhile, #FicFriday returns with a vengeance!
Once Upon a Time/XMFC, Warehouse 13, Greek mythos via Percyverse )
minkhollow: Help!: The Exciting Adventure of Paul on the Floor (paul on the floor)
We have a TV now! And the purchasing power to get a decent mattress! We may have to pull in the other furnishings more slowly than we wanted, but OH WELL. We'll figure it out.
Meanwhile, hopping back on the #FicFriday bandwagon!
Warehouse 13, OUaT, Percyverse!Greek mythos, OUaT/XMFC, Discworld )
minkhollow: (not to be taken away)
Since my grandfather will not go to hospice, hospice has come to him. (Frankly, I think this should have happened months ago; my grandmother was never prepared to be a caregiver, and I think she's finally stopped pretending she can do it by herself.) So who knows what's going to happen from here, but at least he'll be a little more comfortable.
Meanwhile: #FicFriday!
so far: Percyverse, W13/XMFC, Disc, Disc/W13, XMFC/Once Upon a Time )
minkhollow: (holy wood magic)
So this week has brought some unexpected pitfalls with it (among other things, we're not looking at an apartment tonight after all); square one for everyone! Drinks all around! (Also, things I did not miss about New England: HOUSE CENTIPEDES AND THEIR RELATIONS. ONE TRIED TO SET UP SHOP INSIDE MY RAZOR HANDLE.)
But we're having company tomorrow, and I'm still not freaking out. All will be well, and all that.
And now, #FicFriday:
OUaT, Warehouse 13, W13/Disc, OUaT/X-Men: First Class, W13/XMFC (both of those by way of panfandomsandbox), Greek mythos )
More as it develops!
minkhollow: W13: Claudia playing guitar (doesn't remind us of musetta's waltz)
ahhhhhhh Things are Afoot and will be in motion in TWO WEEKS. It's hard to believe, really.
Meanwhile, #FicFriday strikes again!
OUaT, Warehouse 13, Percyverse!Greek mythos, OUaT/X-Men: First Clas via Milliways; will update if/as more occur )
Considering [community profile] disc_fest, though I'm not sure if I'll spring for it or not. (I'm not sure I can properly pull off the idea that popped into my head first thing.) But I have a week to make up my mind.
minkhollow: (here at the end of all things)
So [personal profile] ladyoflorien had this fabulous idea on Twitter, where you try to fit a mini-tiny-teeny fic into 140 characters. Actually, it's usually closer to 130, after you @reply it to the person who prompted you, but still. So I gave it a try tonight, and here's what happened.
fandoms: Once Upon a Time, Potterverse AU, Warehouse 13, Percy Jackson/Greek mythology (yes, the designation means something) by way of Milliways, W13/Disc by way of Milliways, OUaT/X-Men: First Class by way of panfandomsandbox )
In conclusion, kinda fun!

Meme time!

1. Go to page 77 (or 7) of your current manuscript.
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written.
4. Encourage other people to do it!


The story I'm currently working on is my queer_fest fic, which is... nowhere near seven pages as of yet. So instead, you get a snippet of another work in progress:
a fairly nondescript bit of a W13 fic )
In other news: Of course Mercury's in retrograde now! No wonder it took like five tries to work out who was trying to start my grandparents' lawnmower (thanks for the follow-through, Dad...)! (Mostly throwing this is for gratuitous tag use. I don't get the chance much.)
Also, dear Once Upon a Time: Roger Daltrey did not guest star in sunday's episode. He had a cameo. It was a hilarious cameo, but that's all it was.
