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: (two generations of win)
Still have a bit of a cough (stupid plague).
Heat's on! OH BOY IS THE HEAT ON. Seems with radiators it's all or nothing. oops?
Hil found me a copy of Villains By Necessity for my birthday! It's in amazing shape, too; there's a slight crease down the front cover and that's it. BEST EVER.
a short scene from last weekend )
And now: FIC FRIDAY.
again, a smattering of fandoms )
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?)
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: (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: (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!
minkhollow: (end *all* the worlds?)
HOLY CRAP, you guys, the [community profile] milliways_bar move was a thing of beauty and a joy forever. (All the free-for-all comments are still LJ-side at the moment and in some cases ongoing, but.)
Still waffling on whether to set up my default personal stuff as DW as well, but... at this point I probably will. Crossposting etc. is easy enough, after all.

ETA: GIP, now, courtesy of [personal profile] synchronicity2. :D
minkhollow: HP/Dr. Horrible: Daily Prophet header; NEXT UP: WHO'S GAY? (it's the perfect story)
Another in the series of Great Millimigration posts.

Staying on:
Cata ([personal profile] dark_dancer; took the opportunity to rename her journal)
Sam ([personal profile] never_misses; what I wanted for him in the first place)
Claudia Donovan ([personal profile] claudiometer; also ported [personal profile] k39zzz, as you never know when you might need an NPC journal)
Apollo ([personal profile] iamso_awesome)

Dropping, and given the reboot probably leaving open to others:
Carl Arbogast
Conflict Diamond

Ported over, but I'm not sure what I'm doing with him yet:
Moist ([personal profile] kemo_soggy, mostly because I love that journal name)

Ported over, but not apping without a partner in crime:
Rebecca St. Clair ([personal profile] abetter_shot; if you or anyone you know would be interested in chucking Jack Secord into a pandimensional watering hole out the other side of said watering hole's move, I can bribe with love and icons!)

Most of my other various retirements racked up throughout the years will be let drop thanks to the reboot setup. Including Angel.

Aaaaaaaand finally, if there's interest, I'll re-app Imp y Celyn ([personal profile] not_elvish; WHY DID IT TAKE ME SIX YEARS TO FIRST USE THIS NAME???) and do another round of Plot With Rocks In. I know I said never again, but apparently I lied. :D?

I rather like the sound of this meme. Gacked from Fi:

Comment with a pair of characters (one has to be mine) and I'll give you ramble type paragraph from my character's POV on how they views yours.

Past, present, [community profile] mixed_muses types, you name it.
minkhollow: (two generations of win)
So there's a thing going around (probably on its way to becoming a meme) that's talking about characters you RP(ed). And it looks fun, so I'm gonna give it a whirl.
let's see what groups we get here... )
...I am amused that most of those were groups of four.
minkhollow: (it's all about the information)
[livejournal.com profile] yuletide FEVER. That is all.
Also, the RP meme, gacked from like everyone at this point (I will also answer for fic things):

A. Has my portrayal of a character(s) changed the way you think of him/her?

B. Pick one of my characters and I'll answer the following questions about him or her.
1. What would your character kill for? What would they die for?
2. What would they refuse to do under any circumstances? Why?
3. What do they dream about?
4. What’s their biggest fear?
5. What single object would they be most hard pressed to part with? Why?
6. What is their fondest memory?
7. What is their worst memory?
8. What or who was were their most significant influence? Expound.
9. What do they believe makes a successful life?
10. What makes them laugh?
11. What are their religious views?
12. What is their greatest strength?
13. Do they have a fatal flaw? If so, what is it?
14. Who is the most important person in their life?
15. If they died, who would miss them most? How would they die?

C. Pick a fandom, any fandom I'm in. I will tell you some stuff that may involve canon ships, fanon ships, fanon trends, and whether or not I think things jumped the shark or went absolutely nuts, or where I myself stopped watching and why!
minkhollow: (song and/or dance)
Meme before work, via [livejournal.com profile] allfireburns:
Post a list of all your roleplaying journal names and explain what the names mean, if anything.
roughly sorted by game they were created for, and mainly the active ones )
minkhollow: (shrews!)
A couple of squee-worthy things, one of which is a PSA:
*So I had a volunteer to move [livejournal.com profile] lower_tadfield into the Era of Tags. This is pretty damn awesome - though a lot of the earliest stuff is full of dead links, now. SO: If anyone reading this has moved website-house for their fic or pictures (and a few of you have posts in the tag, which is why I mention), hop on over to the 'dead links' tag and fix the links, if you could? The tags only go up to about May 2005, at the moment, but that's where the bum links are most likely to be.
*And now for something completely different: [livejournal.com profile] roads_untaken. Panfandom AU-versions-of-characters goodness. Go forth and join; it's fun!
(On a related note: WHY DID IT TAKE ME SIX YEARS TO COME UP WITH [livejournal.com profile] not_elvish. WHY. ALSO, HOLY CRAP IT'S BEEN SIX YEARS. XD)
minkhollow: (holy wood magic)
Meme time, gacked from everyone at this point:
→ why I decided to play this character
→ my favorite scene or bit of interaction concerning this character to date
→ my favorite original aspect about this character (world-building for ocs or head-canon for fcs)
→ the last thing they did "off screen"
→ what their last words would be if they died tomorrow
→ what the next thing I'm doing for them is (narrative, post, shelving, whatever)

» I will tell you what character of yours I'd like to play mine against
» you may ask me a free question ♥

This includes the original characters who've floated around MM. I've answered for Moist and Cata over here.
minkhollow: (leap of faith)
So, I have some memes to answer (courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] gehayi), and one I'm just plain picking up.
Ask me about any character that I've RP'd as and I will tell you 5 things from my own personal head canon about them.
the list of the characters )
1. Reply to this post (putting up your hand), and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

the one with the icons )
Reply to this post by yelling "Words". I'll pick five words that I associate with you. Post to your journal about those words and get your friends to do the same.
the one with the words )
