musesfool: (shakespeare got to get paid son)
[personal profile] musesfool
Writing is dumb and I don't recommend it.

In other news, I woke up at 5:15 this morning to pee and didn't fall back asleep until after 6:50 am, partly because I have a bug bite on my ankle (first of the season *sigh*) and even with cortisone lotion and allergy meds, it didn't stop itching. That is just wrong. My alarm goes off at 7:20 (it allows me to hit snooze three times and still be in by 9). I was not happy.

So instead of anything interesting, here's a meme [personal profile] snacky tagged me to do over on tumblr and as always tumblr is useless for finding things later, so I'm posting it here in case I ever want to see it again:

Cite the final line of five of your fics – your favorites, or the most recent ones.

I'm doing recent, because it's easier than choosing favorites:

1. "Forget about Vader for a few minutes, Luke," she says after another great victory that's come with its own desperate costs. "Let me tell you about our mother, instead." (Mother Is the Name for God, Star Wars, Leia & Padme)

2. It's as good a way as any to start a day. (Stuck in the Middle with You, Star Wars, Ahsoka, Anakin, Obi-Wan, platonic bed-sharing)

3. The Force chimes with a clarity and closeness Anakin hasn't felt in a long time when he sits down beside Obi-Wan, takes a deep breath, and opens his mouth to finally tell him the truth. (and gravity, scientists say, is weak, Star Wars, Anakin & Obi-Wan, Obi-Wan/Satine)

4. Ben went, and he and the galaxy both exhaled in relief. (Everything That Rises Must Converge, Star Wars, Skywalker Family Reunion Time)

5. Rey grinned, warmed by their confidence, and prepared the Falcon for takeoff. (if you find yourself lost, dig, Star Wars, Rey & Leia)

I think I'm better at last lines than I am at first lines, but sometimes I like to wrap things up too neatly, so they land with a thud instead of whatever smart and satisfying sound they should land with. I dunno, what do you think?

More fun with Medical bills...

Well, we got the final bill on Lee's CT scans & Echo cardiogram. After insurance we owe $1587.00 that we have to pay out of pocket. That's on top of what we already owe Norton's which brings it to a pretty scary amount of $6,040.70 in total! I'm going to be getting in touch with them to add it to our total payment plan which I already know will make our monthly payments a lot higher.

I'm in the process of listing a bunch of stuff to sell to try to try and pay it down some. Plus we're pretty broke right now because I'd already paid them an extra $200 in co-pays this month on top of our usual payment. Normally it wouldn't matter so much but Lee has to do a job related trip to Gary IN this week. His lodging is paid for by the University, thank goodness, but he'll still need to eat while he's there.

If you guys wouldn't mind sharing the things I'm posting I'd really appreciate it. You can find them here:

http://stores.ebay.com/Barbaras-Essentials

Plus, if you see anything you'd like and would rather pay for it here, let me know and I could tell you what it would be with postage. My Paypal is bstaton@iglou.com. If you find something you'd like if you send it friends and family they don't take out all the fees.

Any help passing this along would be greatly appreciated. I'm going to keep adding stuff to sell as I can get pictures taken of everything. We should be close to meeting our deductible for this year which will help with meds and co-pays once we do. Sure is not a fun ride getting to that point though.

Thanks, guys, as always, for listening.

*hugs*

musesfool: diaz & santiago are skeptical, part 2 (how you like me now)
[personal profile] musesfool
I dreamt that I attended a wedding and Ian Holm, Ian McKellen, and Ewan McGregor were also guests, and the entire bridal party (...wedding party? can it be a bridal party if it's two dudes getting married?) was dressed as French sailors (i.e., navy and white striped shirts, high-waisted navy trousers, and berets!). Then LION from Steven Universe showed up. I still don't know who was getting married, though.

Then I woke up and emailed myself a completely unrelated story idea that is feasible but gosh autocorrect makes trying to read those written at 2 AM while half-blind emails difficult. Luckily, since the idea is basically "these characters bang for ~reasons" there wasn't much figuring out to do. *snerk*

This morning, I had one of those eye migraine things, which made me late for work since I didn't feature taking the stairs down into the subway with the vision in my right eye going all fractal, so I waited until it passed. I don't get them very often but they are freaky when I do. And for the first time, today's has left me with a headache. Or maybe it's the weather. Sigh. Monday being Monday, I guess.

At some point I'll catch up on other tv shows, but it didn't happen this weekend. Sigh.

In other tv news, [personal profile] skygiants is watching The Clone Wars, and has a fun recap of the first ten episodes here. If I'm stuck having feelings that aren't annoyance and dislike about Anakin Skywalker, I'm going to drag as many people down with me as I can. I am just saying. #i hate that i have ~feelings about darth vader now

Wilde Monday!

May. 22nd, 2017 02:45 am
[identity profile] simplyn2deep.livejournal.com posting in [community profile] comment_fic
Hello, everyone. I’m [livejournal.com profile] simplyn2deep and today's theme is Oscar Wilde Quotations. Simply use one of Oscar Wilde's brilliant quotes from the website or another one, as a prompt. Easy peezy.

Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the above mentioned spoiler cut.

Prompts should be formatted as follows: [Use the character's full names and fandom's full name]
Fandom, Character +/ Character, Prompt

Some examples to get the ball rolling...
+ Any, Any Male/Any Female, "Men always want to be a woman's first love - women like to be a man's last romance."
+ Teen Wolf, Stiles Stilinski, "Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes."
+ Hawaii Five-0, Steve McGarrett/Danny Williams, "Life is never fair, and perhaps it is a good thing for most of us that it is not."

We are now using AO3 to bookmark filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and post it to AO3 please add it to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2016 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out the just created Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet. For more recent prompts to write, you can also use LJ’s advanced search options to limit keyword results to only comments in this community.

While the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet and LJ's advanced search options are available, bookmarking the links of prompts you like might work better for searching for in the future.

musesfool: hardison/parker/eliot = ot3 (your desire for explosions and larceny)
[personal profile] musesfool
I said this on Tumblr last night, but that frequently feels like shouting into a void, so I'm going to say it here too, in the hopes that casting it out into the universe means it will shortly appear on the internets for my reading pleasure:

There should be a Leverage/Timeless crossover, where the Leverage crew gets hired to infiltrate Mason Industries ("Let's go steal a time machine!") and they have NO IDEA that the time machine is real, so they are in for QUITE A SHOCK when Parker accidentally sends herself and Lucy back to the Gold Rush or something. Of course, when they discover Rittenhouse it becomes "Let's go steal history!"

I feel like Eliot and Wyatt would have run into each other before (surely something very distinctive will be mentioned, or perhaps that's in regard to Flynn, whom Eliot would also know and dislike immensely), and Jiya and Rufus know Hardison from somewhere online (or maybe MIT?), while Lucy and Parker would just be super awkward when they got stuck in the past together. Parker might learn a few interesting if non-pertinent historical facts, and Lucy might learn how to crack a safe.

Someone who is not me should totally write that! :D :D :D

In other news, I meant to link to this the other day and forgot in all the househunt excitement: wonderful Kaz/Inej fanart by [twitter.com profile] mimiscribbles. His bare hand! Their linked fingers! Her knives! The twin "we're going to fuck you up" expressions! <333 #otp: we never stop fighting (Thanks to [personal profile] umadoshi for the link!)

Third Sunday of the Month

[identity profile] evil-little-dog.livejournal.com posting in [community profile] comment_fic
If this is your first time at [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic on Sunday, you can either post a previous prompt, or fill one. Or both!

How to do this:

Looking for prompts? You can find them in various ways! You can rummage around at the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet, or go into the Calendar Archives, or for more recent prompts, you can use LJ's advanced search options to find prompts to request and/or fill.

Whichever you decide to do, prompt or fill (or both!), please remember:

1. You can only request five prompts to be filled.
2. You can request no more than three prompts from a particular fandom.
3. You can, however, fill as many prompts as you'd like!
4. In the subject line, be sure to say whether this is a request or a fill!
5. You must link back to whatever the prompt is in the community logs (whether filling or requesting it be filled), and, if you're filling the prompt, please complete the fill as a response to the original prompt.
6. If you are filling an "any/any" prompt, please let us know what fandom (or, if original, say so!) you're using for the response.
8. If there are possible triggers in your story, please warn for them in the subject line!
7. If you filled any lonely prompts earlier this week, this is the place to share them!
9. Finally, we now have a community at AO3. If you have an AO3 account, please post your fills there. More information on how to do this is located at this link.

How to link:

[a href="http://comment-fic.livejournal.com/449155.html?thread=70682755#t70682755">MCU, Tony Stark/Pepper Potts, She's wearing daisy dukes and one of his button-down shirts.[/a]

musesfool: azula, angry (you wouldn't like me when i'm angry)
[personal profile] musesfool
I am so excited about buying this apartment that I have 1. willingly spoken on the phone for no necessary reason other than just to squee about it, and 2. reactivated my Pinterest account and spent several hours pinning potential furniture and other decorating things. I really dislike how Pinterest works (why is it so difficult to get to the original non-Pinterest link to see the thing in its original habitat, i.e., with a price and description etc.) - I feel about it the way many of you probably feel about Tumblr. Which isn't to say I don't also loathe Tumblr, because I do, but at least I know how it works. With Pinterest, I'm always like, what the fuck is happening here?

ANYWAY. I discovered that there is such a thing as the Azula Living Room Collection, and I may need to buy a couch and chair from it. PRECIOUS MURDER PRINCESS SOFA. <333

I also discovered ridiculously pricey writing desks and accent mirrors that don't even list a price so who even knows how expensive they are? Not that I wouldn't purchase them if I had unlimited funds! Needless to say, I found much cheaper but still snazzy versions of most things as well, so once I know this is actually happening (and when), I will be able to buy a new couch and, eventually, a dining set, among other things.

Even as I'm trying to manage expectations, I am excite!

Summary: Alexander Hamilton has always been devoted to his captain; he never intends to admit just how deep his devotion runs. When an away mission goes intimately wrong, both men are left reeling. Hamilton knows there's no going back. But how can he make things right if Washington won't even look at him?

Or: the one where Washington is a starship captain and away missions are terrible.

It’s Friday, and I am [livejournal.com profile] 4bdnsn0wflake, and I hope everybody had a great time this week.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who left prompts and those who filled them!

The final theme of the week is Post-Canon.

Prompts and fills should be about things that happen after the story, movie, TV show, etc. ends. You can also prompt ongoing series based on where the story is paused.

Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.

Some examples to get the ball rolling...

+ MCU, Natasha Romanov, retirement

+ The Boondock Saints, Connor MacManus+Murphy MacManus, prison life

+ Ouran High School Host Club, Souh Tamaki/Fujioka Haruhi, wedding day

We use AO3 to bookmark filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and post it to AO3 please add it to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2017 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 1 (not very current), Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 2, or the Calendar Archives, or for more recent prompts, you can use LJ's advanced search options to find prompts to request and/or fill.

Hi guys! Wow! Can you believe that we're at the end of another season all ready? I still can't believe we made it past five much less twelve seasons with a Season Thirteen to come! I haven't seen the episodes yet, my plan is to watch them as soon as these are up. I wanted to post as early as I could this week because I know how excited everyone is to see the finale. Tell me what you think, the good and the bad. I can't wait to see what everyone has to say about whatever they've done to us this time. :)

The files are almost finished uploading. Once they're done, just follow the links below and then click to download whichever format you'd like best.

musesfool: Death of the Endless, captioned "I was there, too, before everything else" (what everybody gets)
[personal profile] musesfool
RIP Chris Cornell. I woke up to a couple of texts about the news and it made me sad. Especially that I never saw them in concert. He was so young! I mean, as I said to my sister-in-law, who is a huge Soundgarden fan, not Cobain young, but still. He had an amazing voice and sang some great songs, and he'll be missed.

Eddie Vedder better take care of himself.

***

In much better news, last night, I saw an apartment that I LOVED, and I put in an offer on it today, and the realtor just told me I should hear back soonish (by June 1, it said on the paperwork, though maybe sooner since I had all my paperwork in order?), about whether they accept my offer (apparently someone else made one too? So I might be out of luck *meep*), and if that happens, then I have to go to the bank and my lawyer and the co-op board to see if they approve as well. Keep your fingers crossed!
