Ho-leeeee shit.


One week. One week, OMG you guys, where did the time go? This time next week, instead of answering questions about vacation accrual or filing invoices, I’m going to be in Holland, trying to catch a train from Amsterdam Schiphol airport to Groningen.


I leave on Sunday. I can’t even.

Um, you guys, we interrupt this broadcast to tell you that Jack Layton is dead. WTF. Hello, mindfuck. It somehow doesn’t seem possible, and yet. :/






(My flight doesn’t seem possible either, but man, I gotta start packing.)


PLUS ONE REC: Can't Go Back The Same Way You Came, Thor (movieverse), by Pell on AO3. THIS IS PERFECTION. IN WRITING. It is at once understated and heartwrenchingly brilliant, and you all need to read it yesterday. Like, it'll make you cry, it's so good.
Wow, it feels like forever since I've rec'd something on here (mostly because I am still slowly working my way through the multitude of kink meme WIPs in my stumble queue), but [livejournal.com profile] jazie_star 's Run for the Light is so brilliant I couldn't wait. It's a movieverse!Thor/Supernatural crossover and I was skeptical at first because, whoa, intense much? But OMG OMG OMG I am having such a hard time being coherent about this because it's really, really good. The characterization of Loki and Thor is bang-on; and I love how their relationship is shown in a way that resonates simultaneously with both astounding complexity and visceral, basic truth. Loki's struggle with his Jotun-ness also lends an undercurrent of tension to this fic and just ;klasdf;klajsd;flkjasd;lkj GO READ is all I can say.

(The face Dean is making in my icon? Pretty much my default expression while reading the fic.)
I fucking love having free time. Here, have a fic rec: Fandom: The Eagle, Esca/Marcus, D/s themes and ohgodhot. Plus, gratuitous Latin. Did I mention it's hot? (Historical accuracy as a bonus kink!)
The boy sitting directly across from me in the library is CUTE! Why am I incapable of normal human conversation?! Arrgh!

ETA: PROBABLY THE MOST HILARIOUS THING EVER if you're into BBC!Sherlock
I have a theory:

Someday, [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge  will break the internet with his awesome.
the understood boundaries of self by [livejournal.com profile] strzyga 

Holy. Shit. Surfacing from reading to write this post feels almost like the wooaahhhhh of waking up from a drunken stupor. Or something. God, that's a terrible endorsement, but please believe me when I say this is something you need to read because it is huge and visceral and just. D/s may not be your thing, but I want to rec the everloving fuck out of this a;sldkfjals;d. The only nitpick I have so far is that apart from Cobb, all other members of the Inception team are shafted/nonexistent. But holy actual Christ, this fic is amazing, and if I didn't have to leave for my bus five minutes ago, I would spazz about it properly.

For now, just be content with "A;LSKDFA;S IT'S AWESOME GO READ"



Porn is an excellent reason to skive off tutorial, I don't know what you're talking about.
OH MY GOD YOU GUYS THIS FIC IS AMAZING. A;SLDKFJALSDFJLAL WATCHMEN, NITE OWL/RORSCHACH ;LAKSDFJ;LASKDFJLA;S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AND READ ITTTTT. IT IS WELL-WRITTEN AND IC AND JUST SO GOOD I DON'T EVEN.

Featuring Dan down on his luck, Rorschach being almost-friendly, guh-inducing imagery, some of the best dialogue ever, and straight razors. AND THERE'S A PART TWO. OAMDGFL;AKDJF;AL BRB IN HEAVEN.
FUCK YEAH, YULETIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :DDDDDDDDDD
HGNH.
Cut for boring IRL bits )

AWESOME MISCELLANY (if by miscellany, you mean fanfic, and I do*): LET US SHARE ALL THE THINGS!
1. [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge  has written THIS aka Bankrobber aka the most epic White Collar story EVER. Peter/Elizabeth, R, VERY, VERY AWESOME, you should all check it out.
2. ALSO THIS VID. HOMG JANUARY PLEASE GET HERE ALREADY SO THAT I MAY CAPSLOCK AND FLAIL AND DIE OVER WHITE COLLAR SOME MORE, K?
3. FOR BBC!SHERLOCK PEEPS: [livejournal.com profile] blind_author  is THE SHIT and has started Semper Fidelis, which BLOWS MY MIND. Well, there's only one part so far, but ;LKjdf;lasdjf;laksdf;la GO NOW AND READ IT. GO. IT IS AMAZING. I MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE MADE ACTUAL KEENING NOISES AT THE SCREEN AS I READ.

*SHOEBOX, AS ALWAYS. Because there will never be a time when SBP does not OWN ALL THE THINGS.

EDIT OH MY GOD IN A HATBOX: CILLIAN MURPHY AND TOM HARDY DISCUSS DOING DRAG. "LET'S HAVE A DRAG-OFF!" ADSF;ALSDFKJAS;LDKJTALSJTA;LSDJFPASDFJ;ALSDJFALSDFJAJSDIOJ OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD THESE MENNNNNN WHAT EVENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDD BRB DYING OF JOY~

This fic is rapidly winning the contest for highest number of re-reads in shortest amount of time. It is sweet and wonderfully characterized, and makes all the important circuits in my brain stop and go hhhnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggghhh. (Also, it's written by [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge . I'm only a little bit biased.)
Well, that was the fastest I've ever heard back from any place I've applied to. I have an interview on Thursday at 7 and if all goes well, I can expect to start on Saturday. Things. They move so fast. *knocks wood*

Also, December 4th is eventually coming up - it's the Mini-Recital for the Queen's Dance Club, and I'm super excited. :D Okay, so maybe Beginner Hip-Hop will pale in comparison with Advanced, but dance is turning into the one thing keeping me sane right now, and I can't wait.

I am also eventually going to catch up on SPN/Merlin. Really. I mean it.

Okay, and last but incredibly jizz-your-pants-worthy: [livejournal.com profile] obstinatrix 's Any Way You Want Me : a 50s!AU, Shatnoy RPF. Amazing. And she just posted the final part last night, which made me squee like a flaily thing.

...ALSO I JUST REALIZED MY ECON CLASS TODAY WAS AT 8:30. IT'S NOW 9:00. GODDAMMIT, WHY SO FAIL? *HEADDESK OF EPIC RAGE*
Feels like it's been a while since my last post. (Yeah, it's a problem when my idea of "internet deprivation AUGH THE PAINNNNNN" is a grand total of ...3 days.)

Friday night started at four thirty with a fencing dinner. The upper year fencers are awesome and will talk extensively about anything from WOW to IMAP/POP servers to Alan Moore's intrinsic awesome. Uber excited to get to know them better. (Unfortunately, theytend to be a bit cliquey, so my fencing buddy and I have decided that when we are upper year fencers, we will welcome all newbies with open arms and inclusive topics of conversation.) There's this mysterious thing called the "Flunge" taking place next weekend, which I am so confused about but really excited for. My spidey-senses eavesdropping tells me it's something to do with "rookies" and "yeah, I jumped in the lake [Ontario], shit". So I really hope some other newbies are attending, cause there's no way in hell I'm going to that alone. Fencing ended at 11, btw and then as soon as I got back to my room, my floormates were all "why are you not over here omg!" so I chilled with them for a bit. And then sleep. Finally.

Um, anyway, because this is all tl;dr, the astonishingly wondrous [personal profile] music_est_vita is reccing me SPN fics and ;ASLDFJKLIEAR;ASDNF;ALKSJF FANDOM OH MY GOD, Y SO TALENTED?!

TOP PICKS:

1. GUYS. GUYS. GET YOUR FREAK ON, BECAUSE [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge JUST WROTE SPN FIC. Ok, by "just", I mean last month BUT WHAT THE HECK WHERE WAS I FOR THIS. ;ALSDKFJAISDFAS;LDFJKA;LWEJRA SHIT SON, THIS IS TOO GQ TO HANDLE. CASTIEL'S CHARACTERIZATION IS WONDERFUL AND HEARTBREAKINGLY ENDEARING, AND I CAN'T EVEN EXPRESS HOW MUCH THIS FIC MADE MY DAY, SO YOU SHOULD CHECK IT OUT 35 minutes ago NOW.

2. SO WE ALL KNOW THAT BOBBY IS SYNONYMOUS WITH AWESOME, Y? This is a look at Dean and Castiel's relationship through his eyes and it's incredibly well-done, being understated but really poignant at the same time. (Written by [livejournal.com profile] moonlettuce )

Finally: DEAN/CASTIEL THEMATIC REC LIST. Does what it says on the tin. Makes me jizz in my pants like a boss on a boat. (motherfucker!)


VID REC

Aug. 25th, 2009 06:36 pm
I found this little gem through the [livejournal.com profile] crackenterprise . It's a nu!Trek vid made by [livejournal.com profile] bendtothesun  set to the song Phenomena by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and it is honest to God one of the best vids I've ever had the pleasure of watching. The editing here is - wait for it - phenomenal (*brick'd*), but lame puns aside, it is truly an amazingly well done vid. The timing is spot on, the pacing is excellent, and the tension in the scenes plays in fantastically with the edginess of the music and shit, can we just concentrate on the fact that I am attempting to write a coherent paragraph about something that is under five minutes long because that is just how awesome it is?

IT ALSO INVOLVES SMILEY!KIRK, WHICH ALWAYS MAKES THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE. GO YE AND WATCH THE FUCK OUT OF THIS VID.


I don’t know how many of you are into RPF and/or RPS, but if you are, then you should definitely check out rageprufrock’s fic D:. (Star Trek 2009, RPS, Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto)

Why?

Ok, first of all, the title is D:, which, come on, how is that not the best title ever? Second, it’s a collab involving [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock, so you know it’s going to be good (because seriously, her fic? ♥ to a degree that is truly stupid). Finally, just, oh God. The hilarity! The camaraderie! The douchebaggery! The tenacity with which the rest of the cast and crew believe that they’re sleeping together! It’s well-written, with great dialogue, cracked-out humour and pitch-perfect characterization – by which I mean Chris Pine is a douche but still kind of adorable, Zachary Quinto has terrible taste in clothes, and Karl Urban just kind of steals the show in every way possible. Also, have I mentioned how inappropriate it is? So wonderfully inappropriate; it’s the type of thing you read and then berate yourself for the next day, saying “Oh God, why did I ever read that, I should not have found it amusing at all”. Of course then you read it again to wonder at the depths to which you have sunk and you’re all “AHAHAHA OH GOD WHAT I LOVE IT” – unless that’s just me.

Anyway, while I was writing this, it totally stopped raining and the sun even tried to come out, which is a pathetic fallacy sign from Shakespeare God that you should start reading right now.

(Also: Guess who just got paid - LIKE A BOSS?) (!)

HGGGGGNNNNNNNNNGH

Snippet from a fic I'm reading:

small snippet, but my advice is to read the fic first )

High school is officially over. I done gone and got my final TDSB report card this morning.

In Chicago, I attempted to stalk [personal profile] copperbadge went to see the Harry Potter Exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry... and I was extremely entertained thanks to the props and costumes, etc. I also became acquainted with a Brit named Geoffrey, and we bonded over general Harry Potter nerdishness, and Ron Weasley's preferred type of sandwhich. Fun times.

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING  COMPLETELY AWESOME:

If you have seen Star Trek: Reboot, and if you liked it, and if you kindofmaybereally want something to read...
[profile] black_eyedgirl 's stuff is foremost on my rec list. Her writing is humourous and appropriately hot, and the way she writes the characters sends me flailing gleefully into my little happy place. Basically, if you like to see things done well, then go ye and check this out.
(PS: Her Bones is a real treat to read.)

Life, Currently, In 3 Lines:

a;dliasekrja;wek  I hate math. >.<

The exam is over. We are on to bigger and better things like Calculus, ohgodwhy.

I am wearing an awesome outfit. </shallow>

Recs

There are two recs this week, on account of life kicking my ass last week. Hurrah, free time!

1) Six Ways of Looking at Chase - [livejournal.com profile] supacat 
This is... a multitude of things. Wonderful. Enchanting. A great look at Chase through House's eyes. Charming. Funny. Something you should go read. Now. Ways Chase is (un)predictable. Ways Chase is awesome. Ways Chase is Chase.

Goodbye, syntax. It was nice knowing you.

2) All Hail James Potter, or Why You Should Both Take A Minute From Your Incessant Shagging To THANK Me, You Ungrateful Gits: A Letter to Mssrs. Sirius O. Black and Remus J. Lupin, from M. James D. Potter. by jennuine

Annnnnd, a Marauder era rec. Warnings: fic may cause explosive laughter, the snorting out of drinks through the nose, excessive flailing and gesturing, and general good spirits. Read at your own risk.


Finally, am I the only one who's never heard of this? Probably.
