Okay. For real this should be the last time I have to do this kind of post.
there's good news and there's bad news. )

Well, I suppose it's time for an update. Unfortunately, it's not a good one.
We hate to be on this train *again*, but here we are. )

Hokay, so. Hopefully, hopefully this will be the last push, but we still need to make one.
minkhollow: (here at the end of all things)
So. It's been a while. I wish I could say I had better news.

alas. )

So, Yuletide! Once upon a time I had grand plans of signing up and requesting a fix-it fic for a certain Cold Case episode, because a) it really truly needs a fix-it and b) BOOTLEGGING LESBIANS. And then, even though I nominated the characters, I didn't end up signing up.

But I did end up writing it.

I got my gal (who could ask for anything more) was me - short, sweet, not easy but hopeful. I realised after writing it that it can't be a fix-it in the 'and they all lived happily ever after' style. That would do a disservice to canon, which never shied away from how much humanity sucks sometimes. This is a white girl and a black girl trying to get by as a couple in the '30s; it was never going to be sunshine and puppies.

But it fixes the part of canon where it all went wrong, and gives them a chance. I like to think they make it work, but that wasn't the part of the story that needed telling.

([personal profile] rosabelle, I confess to wondering if you worked out it was me. XD)

First order of business: Quinn and I are considering running a Warehouse 13 prompt fest. Watch this space!

Second order of business: We finally watched the last three episodes of S4 over the holiday weekend. Quinn got drunk for it; I stayed sober (more because I don't like the taste of alcohol than anything else).
SO THAT HAPPENED. You don't want to read this if you're still dodging spoilers. )

The kind of question I ask at 1:30 AM:

Hey, Warehouse 13 types. I think we've finally outgrown Yuletide, and I know some of y'all got it into Not Prime Time, but I was wondering: Would there be any interest in a W13-specific fic exchange? Not necessarily concurrent with the holiday season, but.

It's one of my favorite giftfic fandoms, and I don't want to lose that. That and it'd give people room to request whatever minor characters/previous-Warehouse backstory they might desperately want to see but can't squeeze into a bigger exchange. I'd be happy to help run the thing, but I'm not going in alone.


(In other news, finally boarding the Night Vale train. Quite entertaining.)

So you know that Cold Case/Warehouse 13 crossover I started back in February?
Six months and eight thousand words later, it's done. (It's more 'Cold Case with a dash of Artifact'; you shouldn't need deep familiarity with both shows to enjoy it.)

Most of what Quinn and I ended up doing was wandering around looking at other people's cosplay. that was quite a lot of fun in itself, though! Some win: Femme!Sam and Dean (in line while we were waiting to register; I pegged it when Dean flipped open her prop shotgun); Jecht and several Aurons (didn't see a Braska, though); Yuna; X2-flavor Rikku; BLU Medic; lots of TF2, actually; Rincewind and Twoflower, with Luggage; THE TINIEST R2-D2; Coraline's Other Mother staffing a t-shirt booth. (She offered Quinn button eyes, Quinn said they were probably an Artifact, she squeed and asked us for a photo.)

Win we got photos of/with: A gaggle of revolutionaries (they were handing out flyers); Moist and Spike, who we're 99% sure were Rincewind and Twoflower on Friday; Red and Snow.

I went to Neil Grayston's Q&A panel on Friday, which was small but mighty. And he said he would be back on Warehouse 13 (he knows the plan and everything)... IF THEY HAD MORE THAN SIX EPISODES. CURSES. He did also say he'd try to pester the writers into releasing the unfilmed scripts when all's said and done.

After that was the signing booth, and the highlight of my weekend: I strolled up to the table and went "Doug! Long time no see! How you been, buddy?" and he rolled with it. :D :D :D Secondary highlight was him following up with 'actually, I think I saw you around when I was eating lunch.'

So I'm just gonna leave this right here.

Oh hey, it's a meme. I'll take it on.

I currently have 146 works archived at AO3. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to 146 (the first* thing I posted there), and I'll tell you three things I currently like about it.

*'First' is relative, as I've backdated some things.

Actually, this has nothing to do with bunnies. But I do have a theory. Warehouse 13 S4.5 spoilers to follow.
in which I make some wild guesses )
No clue if I'll be right, but the pieces just... clicked into place in my head a few minutes ago. So there you go.

a story from the other night )
Meanwhile, Fic Friday! Leave prompts here if you're so inclined and I'll drop you a couple sentences or so of fic.
the Twitter-side prompts )
minkhollow: (fear is never boring)
ohhhhhhhhh my god tonight's Warehouse 13. I have SO MANY FEELS. (And I will cheerfully discuss them in the comments; 'ware spoilers.)
Also, does anyone know what next week's episode is supposed to be about?
minkhollow: (here at the end of all things)
This plot was the best idea ever. (So was convincing Quinn she'd like Warehouse 13 after all. It only took me four years! Speaking of, dear back half of the season: Please be awesome. ALSO HOW IS [GUEST STAR] I DO NOT EVEN.)
Meanwhile, Fic Friday! Leave a prompt here if you're so inclined.
in which I was only on Twitter this week )
minkhollow: W13: Claudia playing guitar (doesn't remind us of musetta's waltz)

Meanwhile, Fic Friday! Leave shortfic prompts here if you're so inclined.
minkhollow: (here at the end of all things)
Cool things:
[community profile] queer_fest prompt claiming is open! I've already got a couple (I, uh, may have one of the stories done already). But go forth, grab prompts, write stories!
Challenge Accepted, in which you can level up D&D-style for doing the stuff you need to do anyway.

Meanwhile, Fic Friday! Leave me prompts here if you like, and I'll write you a short little thing. Or a longer thing if inspiration strikes.
in which I forget about the cut tag, oops )
minkhollow: (here at the end of all things)
Man, this week has not been my friend. I think the time change, allergies and Vikings ganged up on me. (But on the bright side, QUINN IS BACK IN MILLIWAYS. :D)
Meanwhile, Fic Friday! Or... Saturday. Whatevs.
I *did* actually write some of these on Friday! But my brain was pretty fried yesterday. )

So. Oz the Great and Powerful.
It wasn't great, but it was good. I shook my head at some things, but absolutely loved some others. (NB: I have never read any of the books, so I can't compare this to book canon. I know Garland!Oz and Wicked, but these are three distinct wossnames here. Four if you count the musical.)
Trailers of note first. Iron Man 3: NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE. I won't be able to handle it. After Earth: Refreshing to see two black people carry an action movie, but it's not quite my cup of tea. Lone Ranger:

Dear Disney, would it have killed you to hire a Native American actor instead of Johnny Depp? I mean, seriously. It's not like there was a big-name movie franchise that hired Native American actors or any...
Oh, wait. And Twilight's done filming.
and now, the spoilery thinky thoughts )
In conclusion: Yes, there are problems. But it's a good story and it has some wonderful moments in it.
