kowaiyoukai: (SGA McShep obviously)
I'm in the middle of writing Apogee 10c. DEAL WITH IT. I'll reply to 10b's comments when I get more time. And I'm in the middle of this EPIC EPISODIC META for SGA, not that most of you really care. But I'm the type of fangirl that needs to be in several fandoms at once--otherwise I cry from lack of gay subtext.

I need to catch up on SPN, SGA, Merlin, Glee, Psych, BSG, Carnivale, Dexter, and SO MUCH MORE IT'S SCARY b/c I suck at being up-to-date with anything.

The only comment I have left is this: wincest and McShep are both canon srsly. ♥
kowaiyoukai: (apologizes)
So there's good news and bad news. The good news is that I meant to update Apogee today, but I couldn't finish it last night because of added witty banter, so it'll be up tomorrow b/c I'M STAYING UP ALL NIGHT TO FINISH IT. The bad news is that I didn't finish the prequel is time for [livejournal.com profile] startrekbigbang, and life is full of pain for me about it. I'm hoping to finish the prequel soon, but right now I've stopped working on it to go back to the main story.

ALSO! I got a job so I'll have less time to write, and I've got to work on my original too. I'm still aiming for once a week updates, but getting online is becoming more and more of a chore. *headdesk*

I'M SO SORRY FOR THE INCREDIBLY LONG WAIT!! Gargh. I'll try to do better from now on.

There are three main factors to my slow Apogee updating, in case you're curious.

1- I got a job so now I've got way less time to write in. (Worth re-stating, IMHO.)
2- In order to write, I usually have to stay up until around 4 or 5 in the morning before I get in the mood to write, and by then sometimes I'm too tired to do anything.
3- I was lured away by other ST fic and the new season of SPN. But I'm still working on it! It's just... ST FIC AND SPN!! *pines*

[Poll #1462134]

DO NOT BE AFRAID OF THIS POLL. I'm only asking b/c I think it's going to take a long time to finish the Apogee story. At first I thought it'd take maybe six months, but it's been like four or five months and it's not where it should be, so now I'm thinking closer to two years. If I update weekly, or at least write a chapter each week, that is. That's either really great or really terrible news, I'm not sure which.

Re: TV Shows and Movies! I watched the first two seasons (almost) of Skins and thought they were great. I FUCKING LOVED "Shelter" and "Were the World Mine"--highly rec'd to anyone who enjoys gay cinema, or gay interest films, or whatever the fuck they're calling them nowadays. And I am on SGA 2x05-ish, and I'm taking EXTENSIVE episode notes on the McShep development. I plan on compiling them into an essay on the canonity (HA HA LOOK AT THAT FUCKING WORD) of their relationship. NO SPOILERS PLEASE I HAVEN'T FINISHED IT YET!! I'm also watching SPN s5, and as my default icon suggests, ANYONE WHO SPOILS ME FOR SPN S5 WILL BE SHOT IN THE FACE WITH A MACHETE. Just FYI.

I got over 1,000 new songs that I'm slowly going through. [livejournal.com profile] fanmix has been very helpful in finding great new music. "You're the Only One" by Maria Mena is FUCKING AWESOME and I'm loving all of my John Sheppard and McShep mixes. ♥

I've updated my icons! YAY! So that's fun times. And I'll catch up on responding to comments (including replies to my fanmix and Apogee 10a) tomorrow when I post 10b. I also have some friending to do, apparently.

ILU FLIST!! See you soon. ♥
kowaiyoukai: (SPN dean take control)
I've been dl-ing fanmixes, vids, and such all morning long! I think I put up twenty of the same generic "would you please upload this again" messages to expired links. *headdesk*

Meanwhile, I posted my fanmix on [livejournal.com profile] hp_addicts, [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_grads, [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts, [livejournal.com profile] harry_potter, [livejournal.com profile] disney, [livejournal.com profile] disneyfreaks, & [livejournal.com profile] fanmix. Half of them need the post to be approved by moderators before they go up, but hopefully there won't be any problems. If there are, I won't be online to fix them. *epic headdesk*

I'm just stealing shows from [livejournal.com profile] jelost and getting the online Arkham Asylum dl's before I leave.

And a question that's possibly a SPN spoiler, so... it's under this cut )
kowaiyoukai: (SPN jensen yes!)

Spoiler-ific fangirling ahead )
kowaiyoukai: (SPN wincest OTP)

In the meantime, I'll be watching The Vampire Diaries and hoping for good vampire slashy goodness. We'll see. THe guys look hot, that's a good start.

And I opened my birthday presents and [livejournal.com profile] jelost made me a shirt! It's a black t-shirt (of course, that's all I really wear) with a picture of Kirk and Spock from the XI movie poster and the words "We Reach Our Apogee Slowly" on the bottom! YAY!! *happy fangirl dancing* I now have a shirt to go with my fic. My gleeful and glorious ecstasy knows no bounds. ♥♥♥

I'll reply to all comments later tonight. Also! I've got to update my flist, I keep running into people who friended me and I haven't friended back yet. Sorry! I'll try to do so ASAP.

kowaiyoukai: (SPN dean reading wincest)
[livejournal.com profile] writersfordwb - It's a comm for the SPN fandom, similar to Sweet Charity. Apparently, the SPN fandom is doing a fundraiser to get $1,000 for Doctors Without Borders as a Christmas present to both Jensen and Jared. So, you sign up to get auctioned off, and the money goes to charity. Yay! LOL, I doubt anyone's going to give any money for my SPN fic, though, SRSLY. :P

STILL I am totally doing this and encouraging other SPN fans to do so as well! \o/
kowaiyoukai: (Star Trek Chris/Zach cuddle)
You know, I was talking to [livejournal.com profile] jelost and I realized that there are still people who "don't get" RPS. I quoted that because it's an odd phrasing. It's saying that they don't understand why people would pair two guys togther in reality. Now, hey, let me start by saying that the idea of wondering if two famous people are dating is not a new one--celebrity magazines do it all the time. In fact, even lots of non-fandom people often keep up with who might be sleeping with who, and who might be gay, and who's breaking up, etc. So, obviously, talking about and imagining two real people getting together has a huge following of people, both in fandom and not.

Second point: I don't think a lot of people who ship RPS view the guys as "real people". In a sense, they're people who are portraying themselves in a certain manner to please their fans, and that's who you're dealing with when you're reading/writing RPS. You're fangirling over the characters the actors are in your mind, not who they actually are IRL, because of course there is no true way for you to ever know how they act when the cameras aren't rolling. That is the point of RPS, isn't it? To try and determine how the actors interact when they're alone. They become characters just as much as the fictional characters they portray are. If that makes sense.

Not to say that I think they're necessarily faking their emotions or close relationships to please fans. Some do, I think, but not everybody. And there's a certain sense you get from people--a chemistry that can't be faked or manufactured (as Zach is so fond of saying)--and it's that chemistry that people sense and flail over. I do think there's a reason certain RPS pairings are popular and others just don't have as many fans. It's the amount of chemistry two actors have, and depending on how obvious it is, the people who see it are the ones who ship it. There's also the interpretation factor. One interview, when viewed by several different people, can give off quite different vibes.

Specifically for RPS, I only ship three pairings: Chris/Zach, Bradley/Colin, and Jensen/Jared. I'm going to put the rest of this under a cut because it might get long. But here's why I ship them, and also why I think, regardless of whether or not they're atcually dating, they're fun to play with.

RPS Below! )
kowaiyoukai: (SPN dean/castiel mission from God)
Okay, so here's what I did over Spring Break:

- started 3 amvs - all SPN. Songs: Ooh Child, Life is a Highway, and Strange and Beautiful
- started 2 fics - both SPN. 1 Dean/Castiel (possibly wincast) b-day fic for [livejournal.com profile] jelost, and 1 J2 crack.
- wrote some original stuff (worked on the novel and a new short story for class) - and have you guys seen the new comm [livejournal.com profile] verb_noire? It's on LJ spotlight, looks kickass. I may try to get published that way, we'll see. *hopes*
- made 10 billion icons (no, seriously. I'll have to icon post later.)

I realized I owe fics to basically everyone in the universe. So I've got to get on that. And I'm so far behind on TRC, xxHolic, Naruto, and BSG that it's pathetic.

ALSO!! I've decided I don't like Sam in s4. That's sad, isn't it? Dean/Castiel works better now. I feel sort of awful for saying it, like my gut is wrenching out of my stomach. BUT STILL. So there will be wincast and Dean/Cas fic coming soon. Join [livejournal.com profile] wincast if you like Dean/Sam/Castiel any way, people!! ^_^*

Finally. I watched the first episode of Merlin. I LOVE IT!!!!!!! Arthur/Merlin is made of win. YAYZ!! I am counting on YOU, [livejournal.com profile] ladydeth12, to provide me with the rest of it!! ♥

I thought I'd have to wait until later, but I actually did everything I needed to do so far online today, so I uploaded pics to photobucket. Not all of them, but the ones with the famous people. Here they are, under the cut to save you all the hassle of loading. ♥

Pics from con!! )
kowaiyoukai: (Default)
I'll update in incredible detail tomorrow. But for now, saw the midnight IMAX of Watchmen and went to SPN con in Cherry Hill.

LOOK AT MY ICON!!!!!!! Misha and I are in it with a heart. YAYZ!!!!!!!!
kowaiyoukai: (pissed off)
I am freaking the fuck out right now. I am in states of unhappiness and disarray. I googled "download Jensen Ackles interview" (because I want to download Jensen's interviews b/c of lack of internet at the house, as you guys know) and this was one of the top results!!!!!!!

Seriously, this is a huge possible spoiler. I don't know if it's true or not but I've heard NOTHING about this and I wish to God it isn't true. OK, so if you don't care about spoilers, or if you already think you know what I'm talking about and want to reassure me it's all a EVIL HORRIBLE VICIOUS LIE then please do so. But otherwise, don't look. SRSLY.

kowaiyoukai: (Default)
Okay. Look. We all know that it sucks that Jared's not going to the con. I'm assuming it's because he's getting gay married to Jensen, because otherwise what possible excuse could he have? None. That's my thoughts on the issue. I know this depresses everyone, that Jared's not going, but I think we should all hold off on selling our tickets and trying to get refunds, both of which most likely aren't going to happen anyway.

There is still hope to make this a good con!

[livejournal.com profile] siriuslyyellow, [livejournal.com profile] jelost, and I have all come to agree on an idea. We all are used to going to anime cons, and anime cons are focused on fandom like WHOA. So, hey, why not use this con as a fandom gathering, just like anime cons do?

There are four things I definitely want to do at this con.
1 – Meet up with shippers to talk about our ships. This is a great opportunity to learn more about areas of the SPN fandom that you may be unfamiliar with. I love discussing ships in a non-threatening manner. So yes, please! The rules are that you can't say anything negative about any characters or pairings, and also that you can't have any crossover ships. Only characters from SPN can be discussed, so that everyone's on the same page.
2 – Meet up with wincesters to fangirl ridiculously loudly. I mean that. Anybody who ships Dean and Sam, let's get together and talk about how awesome they are and how much they love each other.
3 – Fanfic drabble contest. Everybody brings a 100 word drabble in and reads it aloud, then people vote on their favorite in various categories. The categories would be something like Best Angst/Drama, Best Comedy/Crack/Fluff, and Best PWP/Smut.
4 – Fanvids!! We can totally have a fanvid contest where you bring in a fanvid you made in the past year, and we vote on the best in each category. Yes!!

I'll be looking to set up these four panels, probably in between midnight and four or five a.m. Friday and Saturday night. At anime cons, they've got activities lined up 24/7 so there's always something to do. I'm kind of surprised about the amount of time they don't have stuff going on, from what I've heard. When will that schedule be up for perusal, anyway?

Here's some ideas we had, about what we could do during the con )
kowaiyoukai: (Default)
OK, I've never done this before. But, this year you can vote for SPN and TDK!! So, go click on the link and do so!

OMG, and totally vote for Christian Bale and Heath Ledger as Favorite On-Screen Match Up b/c duh. THEIR YAOI LOVE IS KNOWN TO ALL YAY. Also, I voted for TDK every time it was an option, and of course SPN. <3 You can vote every day too! [Except I totally voted for Iron Man as favorite Superhero.]

Vote here: http://www.pcavote.com

So anyway people, spread the word around! The other options for best sci-fi/fantasy show are Heroes (tough competition) and I think maybe Knight Rider (or something else easily shoved aside). So get fandom to vote! SPN must win! Although, seriously, why isn't BSG on the list? DUH. And OMG they give you widgets to advertise with YAY.

In case you haven't downloaded these yet, go do so now.


Really. You just have to go and get those songs and listen to them. For the sake of your inner glee!! XD

... See what happens when I am left alone? *headdesk*
kowaiyoukai: (rants)
I AM NOT WATCHING SUPERNATURAL TONIGHT!! Please do not spoil me by either posting comments with spoilers in them or else comments with spoiler icons in them. I am always going to be behind in SPN by one week, and I would really appreciate it if you guys wouldn't tell me what happens before I see the episode. I will flip out at you if you do, fair warning.

Just to have an update, and because I haven't talked about this recently.

Some links to news articles and other similar propaganda:
Brad Pitt donating $100,000 to fight gay marriage ban
GOP senator: A 'stretch' to say Palin is qualified
Obama rebounds in polls as economic crisis bites
Uncovered Questionnaire Shows Republican VP Nominee Palin Opposes Hate Crimes Laws
Sen. Obama's LGBT Q&A with Window Media

OK, so yay for gay rights, Palin sucks, and so on. Apparently, Lindsey Lohan also said to vote for Obama? LOL. I just want to vote and be done with this crap already.

In other news: I am stuck on all of my fanfiction. AKGDSHAHSKJDFJK drat.
kowaiyoukai: (Default)
Okay, so a few things. One: for those of you who don't know, I don't have the internet at my house and so I randomly am not online. I'll comment when I get back online--I come and go, like a disease! XO

Two: does anyone know about this total solar eclipse that's going to happen August 1st? Now I'm excited about it. :D

And, I'm putting up two metas very shortly. Deal, f-list. Ignroe at your leisure, they're what I was writing the past two days.

Also, I've got to crack down and finish the SPN fics for [livejournal.com profile] wincest_fic and [livejournal.com profile] spn_monthlyfic. I've also got to get going on TBKS 9, Metanoia 2, and these half-finished Batman/Joker things I've got lying around on my desktop. Drat it all. Oh, and I guess putting up a masterlist of my fic as a sticky post at he top of my LJ is a good idea? Y/N/STFU?

Finally, a meme! Please feel free to comment for fun! And this was gacked from [livejournal.com profile] vivid_honey. ^_^*

Comment with a fandom and I will tell you my...

One True Pairing Ship:
Canon Ship:
"If this happens I'll stab my eyes out with a spork" Ship:
"You are one sick bastard" Ship:
"I dabble a little" Ship:
"It's like a car crash" Ship:
"Tickles my fancy but not sold just yet" Ship:
"Makes no canon sense but why the Hell not" Ship:
"Everyone else loves it but I just don't feel it" Ship:
kowaiyoukai: (Default)
Marty McFly's Hyperdunk shoes now available for sale on eBay if you're a millionaire. Here's a bored blogger's SPN S3 awards!! And there's even a whole set of blogs about SPN. I love odd news. :P

My original novel is coming along rockingly. I've developed a team of evil people, which was clearly needed, like Akatsuki, Organization XIII, the Death Eaters, etc. And they sort of rock out hardcore.

I am so excited about finishing this off. I'm hoping to have the first book done by either the end of the summer or the year, so that I can use it as my thesis and then look for an agent and then get it published. It's going to be a five-part series, so I figure, as long as I finish a book a year, it should be cool.

And on the fanfic front: TBKS 9 is giving me hassle, the little bitch. I need to finish off TBKS ASAP, for serious. The SPN challenge fics are being thought up, both short and sweet, hopefully.

Finally: SPN S3 box set comes out 09/02!! YAY!!!!!!! I am so ready to buy it and get all the extras and everything. OMG, and the cover art is so emolicious. Check it out at Amazon, if you can. My computer hates upon me currently and will not let me re-look at it. :(
kowaiyoukai: (bitch please)
kitsune_no_ame's icons

I was stalking icons for the best hour, and I stumbled across this. I put up a link to prove what I have said all along. SPN is actually ANIME IN DISGUISE!!!!!!! Yes, people who are all into anime and have all anime icons also have icons of Dean Winchester. B/c SPN is anime, and the SPN fandom is like anime fandoms, and this is why I love it.

Also, wincest. <3
kowaiyoukai: (bitch please)



Go there for spoiler fun. :P

More later, probably. But now for the actual work I have to do.


OMGCRYMOARSELF. http://bellanut.livejournal.com/269790.html?view=4621534#t4621534 spoiler-full of spoilers.
kowaiyoukai: (bitch please)

THIS MEANS YOU, [livejournal.com profile] ladydeth12!!!!!!!

So the spoilers... )
