  • [personal profile] spindizzy: Here! I don't know how you're reading this if you don't know that, but let's start with the basics. ;) This is my spottily updated journal, mostly real-life blather with occasional dips into fandom.

  • [twitter.com profile] spindilly: My twitter account. I make no promises regarding this except that there will be a lot of caplock, foul language, and occasional frothing.

  • [tumblr.com profile] spindizzily: My tumblr. Mostly runs off queue, so activity there does not necessarily mean that I am online. Almost entirely fandom reblogs, please leave a comment or send me an Ask if you need me to tag a specific fandom or warning for you so that you can blacklist it.

  • [archiveofourown.org profile] spindizzy: My fanfic archive. Includes a lot of old and embarrassing nonsense; for examples of what I consider my best or most representative fanfic, please check out this collection.

[sticky entry] Sticky: Prompts?

spindizzy: (Default)
Hey guys - this post is going to be a sticky, so feel free to come back to it whenever you fancy! I'm doing my best to make it easy to find.

I WOULD LIKE YOU GUYS TO LEAVE ME PROMPTS, IF THAT'S OKAY. Any fandom you think I'm into or would like, any/no pairings, as many comments/prompts as you'd like. I just... Want to make a repository of things for me to write in the future that's a bit less intimidating than going through the [community profile] ff_exchange backlist. Like, I won't promise that I'll get to everything, but I really like the idea of having a fixed place to look for inspiration?

PLEASE HELP ME TO SEE HOW LONG THIS CHAIN OF POSTING FIC EVERYDAY CAN LAST.
spindizzy: Joshua looking smug at the camera. (Oh is THAT what you think?)
I'm not saying that I stayed up till 2am listening to a woman with insomnia talk about not being able to sleep, but hi.

The Black Tapes //
G | 100 words | Alex Reagan, Richard Strand | Spoilers for episode... 204 I think? | She doesn't ask when was the last time you slept.

spindizzy: (Ready when you are)
OKAY LET'S DO THIS. Dearly beloved, we are here so that I can actually get through all of Daredevil, it might not take. It didn't take last time I tried it? I think I remember episode... Eight? Fisk is a thing, he is hardcore creeping on an artist? And Karen is great except that she was SUPER RUDE to Foggy who appeared to be a delight. But this time, I have a strong backing of fluffy shipper fic to support me instead of Lex and my housemate, Mike, who are FINE to watch TV with but also don't do the shipping thing so it's a waste of time watching with them. Let's rock.

In conclusion: MATT MURDOCK GET YE A HEALING FACTOR.

Hugo Watch

spindizzy: (Default)
OKAY, there are like two hours until the start of the Hugo Award ceremony and I am so nervous. I'm not sure if we're gonna win or lose, but either way I'm kinda excited and kinda terrified and all I can do until the actual ceremony starts is my homework (noodling at writing, reading Cold Magic).

I THINK I'M EXCITED. I THINK THIS WILL BE FINE EITHER WAY because omg people voted for us which means people like us! And I am so grateful! *rolls* I wish Lex was here, I'm at my mum's and I wish I could wait for this while cuddling my husband but I GUESS books and shouting will have to do.
spindizzy: (Now it sounds stupid)
"What, you nervous?" Rick asked. Drake had jumped out of a helicopter trying to get away from the team that brought him in, hard to imagine him knowing what fear was.

"I don't always... Get along with soldiers," Drake said, his grin looking more like a grimace when Rick glanced over at him. "They get upset over the whole 'graverobbing' thing, and it's hard to make friends when people are shooting at you."

"Do your job and they won't be shooting at you." Rick reminded him, checking his watch. "And I'd take my chances with them over Waller any day."


So [personal profile] scarimonious and I had TERRIBLE IDEAS on twitter today.
spindizzy: Cougar from The Losers smiling and holding a gun. (Heh)
SO guess who watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens again this weekend? YEAH, IT ME. \o/

I love this film, I'm so glad it exists.
spindizzy: The ordinary are so frequently oblivious to the extraordinary. (Hard at work)
Pet Shop of Horrors // Distance
G | 100 words | Leon Orcot | Set post-series, spoilers | There's only so far D could run.

I'm still not sure how I feel about the last third (Grace, no, why), but up until that point I was really enjoying it!

spindizzy: (Be happy!)
  1. The summer reading challenge has started at work! I ended up setting up a treasure hunt, which lots of the parents and kids seemed excited about, and we joined SO MANY KIDS up to the library today! Including adorable twins and a little girl who was very proud to be answering all of the questions.

  2. I got SO MANY BOOKS today! Volumes 2, 3 and 5 of The Ancient Magus' Bride came in (they're still waiting on four!), the second book of DC Bombshells (... I need to read both of these and then AGGRESSIVELY FOIST THEM ONTO [personal profile] captainraz), and the volume of Until Death Do Us Part I somehow managed to skip over came in! And the library got the first fifteen volumes of Skip Beat in for me so I can reread them, and [personal profile] renay is hella jealous and she doesn't know why.

  3. I did a bit of a Pokémon jaunt while I was walking from the library to my mate's house (my regular Wednesday game was cancelled, we went round to stat characters/brainstorm for another game), and a) it is GREAT to go by the bit of the castle near the students and see hordes of people sprawling around blatantly playing Pokémon, b) someone dropped lures on all three overlapping Pokéstops, it was like a fucking swarm, c) I hatched a Snorlax! And an Eggsecute! d) I stopped for a minute to check out a gym, and a massive group of people stopped nearby with their phones out.

    "Oh wow, is everyone kicking Team Valour out of that gym?" says I, and this whole group goes YES. (Me and this one other dude were the token Team Instinct members! REPRESENT, TEAM YELLOW, WE ARE THE CUTEST!) We then proceed to kick Valour out of the gym, Mystic moves in, and I get invited to go on a Pokéwalk up to the castle with this swarm of people. :) I didn't, because I was running behind, but it was really nice to be invited!
spindizzy: (Nearly there)
Uncharted // Let's Start Living Dangerously
G | 816 words | Victor Sullivan, Nathan Drake | OKAY, technically no spoilers! Set pre-franchise, but using canon established in Uncharted 3? | Nate can look after himself. He's better at look after himself than Sully is, anyway.

Six months in and he still wasn't willing to take the chance that Sully was gonna go out on a job and forget to come back )
spindizzy: (Well when you say it like THAT it sounds)
The game taunted me with Hawkeye during the British Invasion event, now I want it. Also I read the first volume of Hawkeye and I love Clint Barton the Human Disaster. He's great. So have a drabble of Hawkeye the Human Disaster during the Spiderman event.

(GUYS I think I should maybe make a macro fic to collect my Avengers Academy drabbles in, what's a good title?)

Okay, this looks bad. )
spindizzy: (Aren't you interesting?)
X-Men //
G | 914 words | Charles Xavier, Erik Lennsher, Raven Darkholme | Set half-way through X-Men: First Class | But why can't Raven go on the road trip?

Why can't I go with you? )
spindizzy: (Then we go mad)
What can I say? [personal profile] squeemu gives good ideas. (Ms [personal profile] vieralynn: I haven't forgotten you! I just need to find Let's Plays of the right bit of the game for what I want to write!)

Read more... )
spindizzy: Moko and Kyoko from Skip Beat!, Moko emoting angry skulls and Kyoko emoting love hearts. (WHY DO YOU LOVE ME)
I'm just slowly pootling through comments over here. I fully expect [personal profile] renay to show up at the last possible minute just holding a sign saying "STEVE/TONY FOREVER" though.
spindizzy: (Default)
I don't even know where to start, I don't WANT to start. Leave me prompts (y'all know my fandoms, if you don't then give us a shout) and I'm going to try to write happy fic for us. That sound like a plan?
spindizzy: Sherlock Holmes as played by Jeremy Brett, laughing with a hand covering his face. (You do make me laugh)
Okay, this has been bugging me since I first saw Warcraft: The Beginning. Orcs are sexually dimorphic, right? Female orcs are, as far as I could see, slightly smaller than male orcs (but still buff as fuck, and I respect the animators for that), and have needle tusks. (Compare Draka to her husband.)

Now, Garona says that the tusk she's wearing is her mother's, but that tusk is HUGE compared to the other female orcs'! Are orcs not as dimorphic as I thought? Did her mother just have unusually large tusks? Did Goldan give her a random tusk and some randomer has been watching over her all this time? ... I'm up for that, ngl, I would just like to know whether I'm going mad or not.
spindizzy: (Backwards and in heels)
(I COULD have gone full Icarus with this but it didn't occur to me until like 1:51 in the morning so NO, NO MYTHOLOGICAL ALLUSIONS FOR YOU, I WILL SAVE THAT TITLE FOR ANOTHER DAY, because I feel like "Some live like Icarus" could be a good Tony Stark story if I was any good at Tony fucking Stark.)

So, anyway, [personal profile] renay left me a comment saying "YOU COULD WRITE THEM WATCHING A SUNSET IN SILENCE AND I'D PROBABLY LIKE IT" about that Steve/Tony fic I wrote for her yesterday and it was like 7:00am so I was like "OH REALLY?!" and, well. What do we have here.

YOUR MOVE, SIR.

YOUR. MOVE.

Avengers Academy // As I Fall I Feel
G | 480 words | Tony Stark, Steve Rogers | No spoilers, set during the early days of the academy? | Nothing makes you appreciate a beautiful evening like destroying Hydra.

It was probably the most beautiful sunset he'd ever seen. )
spindizzy: (Backwards and in heels)
The file name for this was "Tony flirts badly with Steve" and I feel like that is a pretty accurate summary of what is going on here. But I promised [personal profile] renay Steve/Tony fic (even though not my ship and hahahahahahahaha when was the last time I wrote kissing fic?) AND BY GOD THERE WILL BE KISSING FIC. REGARDLESS OF QUALITY.

Avengers Academy // I Wanna Wear You Like a Suit
G | 953 words | Steve Rogers/Tony Stark | Super vague spoilers for a couple of missions in the Civil War event | Pulling pigtails was old back when Steve was a kid.

Steve was supposed to be catching up on recent history, Fury's orders. )
spindizzy: (Be happy!)
I AM NOT SAYING that getting a cinema card was the most financially responsible decision I've made in a while, I'm just saying that I saw six movies last month for less than twenty pounds and this is magic.

(OKAY two of those were imax, but that's still only another fiver each? Which is so much better than the FIFTEEN POUNDS EACH they usually charge. )

Plus I found out that my local cinema does subtitled screenings of movies, and now that I know this I might have to go through and find EVERY SUBTITLED SHOWING THEY DO, because it is so greeeeeeat!
spindizzy: Gippal from Final Fantasy X-2, with the words "Jack of all trades" written over him. (Jack of all trades)
Yesterday I went swimming for the first time in like five years! I only did twenty-five lengths, which I was quite disappointed with but which my friends are telling me is FINE, so ???

([profile] jilliferium: Your expectatations are unrealistic and you should feel bad.
Me: It is a day ending in y, bears are catholic, and the pope shits in the woods.)

But yes, swimming. Lex is trying to be healthy, which is good! And I am like "uuuuuuuuuuuuuugh" about diets and eating healthily, so my contribution to this effort is being like "and now we swim" because swimming is good for me? Maybe? I feel Very Aware of my knees, but that's mainly because hahahaha I am so bad at breaststroke. And it turns out that if I get up before 8:00 even when I have a morning off, I am actually capable of DOING THINGS during the day before I go to work, WHO FUCKING KNEW.

I dunno. I made a deal with myself that I would go swimming at least 24 times, because that's once for each pound the swimsuits cost me, and then I will evaluate how I feel after that.

(I'd be more enthusiastic, but LANE SWIMMING IS THE MOST BORING THING ON EARTH, EVEN MORE SO IF YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN AND IT'S 8:30 IN THE MORNING SO YOU'RE FILLED WITH BEES AND HATRED. But also I am in a state where it's like "This body is grooooooooooooooooss!" whenever I'm near a mirror, so taking steps!)

ALSO I need to get used to wearing swimsuits that were designed for women of my girth, but not necessarily my... Proportions, because I am constantly worrying about the damn thing getting dragged down and flashing my boobs at the pool.

I still remember how to do the twisty-rolls at the end of the lane to launch you into the next lap and I am super pleased with this knowledge. :D
