+ I am kinda sad not a whole lot of you are on LJ anymore, but I get it. The site has not been user-friendly for a number of years, and people need to do what people need to do. But LJ and DW are, I think, the only platforms that invite intimate conversations about our daily lives. Twitter is good for snippets and random thoughts that pop into your head, sure, but not conducive to lengthy conversations without feeling like you'd break Twitter, and/or annoying if you have to go over the character limits, and Tumblr is unwieldy re: personal texts, and writing, imho. Tumblr's mostly good for graphics and music. Not that Tumblr /can't/ be used for text posts, but the archive system is shit and I can never reply to people's post because the site is not made for such things. (I mean, I /can/ reply but it entails me going to my dashboard, and I never scroll through my dashboard anymore because I'd never get out of tumblr if I did that, so now if I want to reblog/like things on tumblr, I go to the individual tumblrs themselves and that's not conducive to replying, is what I meant). I have friended a number of you lovely people on DW, so there's that. What I'm saying is, I'll be here, if people find themselves wandering back around or visiting for the first time. I'll be like that one grandmother who loves to hang out on the porch, and wave at random people passing by.

+ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers the Movie is getting a reboot! I can't see this news as being anything other than awesome because a whole new generation of Power Rangers fans! What's there not to like?

Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 10



In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.


1. Icons with John Green quotes (either something he's said or quotes from his books), likewise any Michele Jaffe, or The Alchemist icons. Or really, any icons about books.

2. Any recs for some awesome podcasts/radio programmes like Welcome to Night Vale or BBC's production of Neverwhere. Despite not being an auditory person at all, if it has a good story, I will so be there.

3. This feels like asking for too much, but art for any of my stories? Ah, maybe someday someone, somewhere, will be inspired to draw something based on what I wrote.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 9



In your own space, rec at least 3 fanworks you thought you wouldn't like (because they weren't your fandom or they pushed against your boundaries or you thought you just wouldn't be interested) but you ended up loving. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 8



In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. Surf the comments and find people to give love to.


*screws up her courage*
So, yes, if you feel like saying anything lovely towards me, this would be the place. You will have my undying love and gratitude and I'm pretty sure if you ever in the future need somebody to help you bury a body, I will totally be that person for you.

(Otherwise known as the post, "dahlia_moon hates asking for validation and hugs and love but she will totally reciprocate if ever need be, and besides, she has an excuse for this one time" she is not, however, too shy to refer to herself in the third person; she /loves/ doing that.)

(Going back to school next week for my last semester as an undergraduate. I'm kinda sad we only got a three-week break this time around. Usually, it's a month. What happened to that, school? Huh??? I'd like to be able to go to graduate school, but that's more of a "someday" for now--my parents are on pins & needles enough as it is for me to graduate and get a job already. I know what most of you are thinking: my parents do not have to live my life for me so if I want to go to graduate school, I should be able to, but yeah, no. It's a bit more complicated then that at the moment. My parents are the practical, wise folks while I'm off with my head in the clouds dreaming of reading poetry all day long, or getting a BA in English, it amounts to the same thing for them in the end.)

Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 7



In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


So I started writing this piece of meta a long time ago, and then it just languished in my drafts folder, uncompleted for the longest time. I don't even remember now what prompted me to write it in the first place? LOL, A+ self. But I wanted to finish it up finally, and publish it somewhere, even if I still have no idea how to write meta. Or if this really is meta. And then this challenge came along, and it's forcing me to finally complete it and spruce it up for public consumption. Anyways, have some Louis Litt feels and thoughts. (I really didn't foresee loving him as much as I do all the other main characters, but I do. Also, though I'm up to s3, this only takes into account seasons 1-2.)

Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 6



In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


(No, the date at the top is correct--I skipped days 4 & 5 because I wasn't comfortable doing them at /all/. I have different comfort levels than most people, I've found. But the fun shall resume! For day anyway.)

Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 3



In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser-known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom who maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.


(This was kinda hard too, as I tend to only read fics on Ao3 nowadays and I find a lot of stuff via recs and lists I find floating around, but I love these three and keep finding myself re-reading them often.)

Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 2



In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


(It was mighty hard just listing three items as I tend to love pretty much all of the communities I join either on LJ/DW or on tumblr/twitter--otherwise I'd delete them from my reading pages, but these are just some of the more exceptional ones.)

1. [community profile] halfamoon: hey it's a community that celebrates women! I do love that this is low-pressure and though I haven't participated myself, I mostly love lurking around and oohhhing-and-ahhhing at other people's posts.

2. [livejournal.com profile] smallfandomfest: I tend to pretty much want to be in fandom for everything I consume in media (to varying degrees, of course, and some fandoms end up being more like one-time fandoms), except the problem with that is I sometimes find myself obsessed with really small fandoms. This community helps in seeing what's out there fannishly. (And I know there's the word "fest" in the title but people can post fanworks in small fandoms all year round, I believe.)

3. [community profile] poetry: for all your poetry needs! I love that it's active and has so much poetry.

the end-of-the-year on writing meme:

Overall Thoughts:
This year, I wrote less overall, but I wrote more words. I think?? It feels more like a quality over quantity year anyhoo (there are several fics on here I've re-read without being embarrassed I wrote such drivel, whereas compared to past years, not so much.)

What TV shows did you start watching in 2013?
Almost Human, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Sleepy Hollow, Haven, started properly watching Hawaii Five-0 from the first season, Star Trek the Original Series, Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Power Rangers R.P.M, Power Rangers Jungle Fury, Power Rangers Samurai, Go On, Jeeves & Wooster, and Green Lantern the Animated Series.

What TV show did you let go of in 2013?
Once Upon a Time and The Vampire Diaries. The former because I don't really much care for the Peter Pan story arc--but I might have to get back into it solely for Ariel and Tinkerbell (who's being played by a former Power Ranger!!! And one of my favorites!!! eeeee!!!) and if they ever officially make Mulan/Aurora A Thing. The latter because I've gotten sick of it; it's declined in quality--not that it was ever anything more than a high school soap opera but the mysteries and world-building and twists kept it pretty balanced.

Which TV show did you mean to get into in 2013 but didn't? Why?
Possibly One Tree Hill--got up to almost finishing s3 on my proper watch before I stopped because I didn't have Netflix anymore but now I have it again so I have no idea why I didn't get back into it. Well, actually the why is that there was no time and SO MUCH OTHER SHOWS TO WATCH. And Legend of Korra (I um I only got six episodes in before I stopped for some reason? And never started up again?)

What TV show do you intend to check out in 2014?
Hmm, maybe Nikita? I've been meaning to check out that show forever who remembers that 90's La Femme Nikita show? no? just me? carry on then.
Reign? Though I did catch a couple of scenes and it looks interesting mainly because it features a female lead but the triangle would probably turn me off. Witches of East Wick. And How I Met Your Mother (from the beginning). Oh and Scandal. Orphan Black. Orange is the New Black. Veep. Husbands. Legend of the Seeker. Helix, if only to try it out but it might border too much on the "horror" scale for me (but Billy Campbell!). Arrow. Chuck. Maybe get into Supernatural again. Merlin. White Collar. Fringe. Lost Girl. Prison Break. Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. Killer Women. And my Netflix keeps recommending I watch The Elephant Princess.

What TV show impressed you least in 2013?
So far--Beauty and the Beast.

What show did you enjoy most in 2013?
I enjoy pretty much all the media I consume (even sometimes problematic things that make me angry which is kinda weird). That being said, here's a short list: Parks and Rec, Castle, Psych, Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Eureka, Elementary, Sleepy Hollow, Almost Human, Warehouse 13, and Go On.

dahlia_moon: (sheriff graham)
- Bold all of the following TV shows of which you've seen 3 or more episodes.
- Italicize a show if you're positive you've seen every episode.
- Asterisk * if you have at least one full season on tape, DVD, or blu ray.
- If you want, add up to 3 additional shows (keep the list in alphabetical order).

dahlia_moon: (pandas in love)
I brought a classic messenger bag (this one) yesterday at my Uni's computer store. It was $50 dollars but it makes me so happy to have it, and I will enjoy having it, damn it, even if it was expensive. It's actually quite a complicated bag because it has a cam buckle (whatever that is...) and I have no idea how that thing works.

I've been eyeing this bag since last year, flist, it was so not a spur-of-the-moment purchase.

Day Twenty-Three: Top Five Worst Teachers You've Ever Had
  1. none
  2. no
  3. really
  4. I love(d) all of them
  5. all of them
(I've mentioned before I was a teacher's pet, right? Now, if you want to talk about the worst school counselors/advisers I've had, I might be able to name a few. I'm sure they all were (are) well-meaning, but so utterly unhelpful. :/)
dahlia_moon: (sheriff graham)
(How's this question different from the crushes question, meme? Whatever, I tend to conflate "sexy" with "omg, I'm crushing on this person" though I know maybe the two categories are different for other people? And sure there are some sexy people who are assholes, but the assholery tends to overshadow the sexiness for me.)

Day Twenty-Two: Top Five Sexiest People Ever (Dead Or Alive) (it is too much pressure to come up with a list of sexiest people ever) 
  1. Grant Gustin
  2. Justin Timberlake
  3. Chris Pine
  4. Holly Marie Combs
  5. Bethany Joy Lenz

Day Twenty-One: Top Five Movies You Quote Constantly
  1. The Princess Bride
  2. Ever After
  3. Star Wars
  4. And um yeah I only got three movies.
  5. I don’t quote things all that much? I can’t remember things all that much frankly.

« This Star Trek face morph of TOS crew and AOS crew is mind-blowing. DeForest Kelly and Karl Urban as Bones in particular freaks me out--in a good way. It's like he's looking into my soul.

« Also, have Tom Hiddleston reading Shakespeare's Sonnet 18.

Day Twenty: Top Five Most Annoying Celebrities

  5. Miley Cyrus

This fic is due in three days, self, three days, ughhh why isn't it finished yet??

Also, school starts tomorrow. Meh.

Day Nineteen: Top Five Favorite Sandwiches
  1. I usually just have a turkey sandwich every day
  2. It’s awesome
  3. But the chicken teriyaki footlong from Subway is awesome too (but even though it’s less than $10, I can’t have it every day)
  4. Basically I’ll eat anything and it’ll be my favorite (except fish sandwiches—but I can’t tolerate salmon or fish out of the can even on the best days so there’s that)
  5. chicken sandwich (which is totally diff. from the chicken teriyaki footlong sandwich from above)

*

The thing with this fic is that it's much easier to write it in Duke's voice than it is in Audrey's or Nathan's. This is strange because I over-identify strongly with Nathan--he could be a /male/ version of me, what we've seen so far of his character. Duke is one of those characters whom I really love in my stories, but if he was someone I knew in real life, I'd probably want to punch him, averse as I am to any kind of violence. (Huh. I guess maybe that's why he and Nathan get into fistfights so much--Nathan can't control himself and HAS to punch him.)

This is all to say, I thought that beginnings were hard to write. But, nope. It's pretty much the whole shebang. Sigh.

#i just want all of them to have sex with each other
#is that too much to ask??
