some nights I stay up, cashing in my bad luck  
1) HAPPY BIRTHDAY [personal profile] aredblush YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE, BB. ♥

2) Remix time is coming up soon! I know a lot of us have fandoms we don't qualify for that we'd like to, so I was considering doing a multifandom comment meme/prompt fest to help get the story counts where it would need to be. But the question becomes: Random prompts? A specific type of prompt? Or a theme?

So, a poll )

3) Inspiration is hard! And while I'm trying to figure out item #2, I thought it'd be fun to try try and get a headstart. So, whatever, a different kind of meme:
The iPod Shuffle
No, not that one. Let's be honest, when we need inspiration, the first place we go is our music library. So let's try something a little bit different. My music library is no help to me, but maybe it can be for someone else. Here's how this thing works:
1) Comment to this post, and I'll give you a prompt in the form of whatever song shuffles up next on whatever music player I've got going at the time.
2) Turn on the music player of your choice to shuffle, post this to your own journal and dole out prompts. No, you can't hide your shameful music. If it shuffles up, that's the gig.
3) Write/draw/whatever way you create for the prompt you've been given: post it. Again, no hiding the shame. Even if you think it's awful, post it.
4) Link your finished product to the prompt comment, because it's always lovely to see the results. ♥

things! + fic - the same old story - killjoys verse - gen  
1) Last Monday, I told [ profile] aredblush that obviously the only way to really celebrate Danger Days coming out was with, will art. (Art is the weapon!) And she drew me killjoys! So amazing, guys! So amazing!

2) In exchange, she asked for the killjoys from the girl's POV. So this happened:

The Same Old Story - Killjoys - gen - 405 words
Girl you got to be what tomorrow needs )

3) A few days ago [ profile] gyzym and I were talking about an Oregon Trail AU, because we crack ourselves up. And because Inception is possible! [ profile] aredblush just DREW IT AND IT IS GLORIOUS AND YOU SHOULD ALL GO LOOK AND ADOOORE HER BASICALLY, OKAY

4) UM TO THE AWESOME PERSON WHO HAS BEEN STUCK WITH ME FOR YULETIDE: I fail at letters, so, so, let me just say, I enjoy happy things, banter, pining, banter, seeing how two people are with each other, banter, friendship, banter, cuddling, banter, and even ridiculous AUs. You should feel no obligation to follow my optional details, and write something you like. I'm sure it will be fantastic. Happy writing, and thank you so much!

5) Speaking of cuddling, a poll!

and I'm afraid I won't get out alive  
You guys, I cannot stop listening to this version of Animal by Neon Trees. I have listened to various forms of this song all day. It has lead to... well, mostly it's led to me, you know, telling [ profile] gyzym all the things I would do with a werewolf Arthur story.

So! A poll lacking in specificity!

Admire my restraint for not flailing about Sean Van Vleet.  
Today, I caved and downloaded Trillian. I HAS A NEW TOY.

Remix is over! I've decided I really need to get in the habit of, you know, doing that writing thing again. But I still have no idea what to write. So, naturally, a poll!

ETA: Never mind, LJ doesn't want to let me have a poll. Because LJ hates me. I bet Dreamwidth would let me post a poll, LJ. Feel free to tell me what you think I should write instead.

The abbreviated list of your options )

Oh, LJ, why you always gotta let me down?

I really kind of give up on today  

Tonight: homework and laundry.

Now, in the midst of remixy admin things, I've been slowly, slowly, slowly moving things over to AO3 because it'll make things neater and easier for whoever gets stuck with me. I realized, during this, that I am ONE story away from actually qualifying in bandom. Oops.

Since there are a couple of weeks until sign-ups begin, I've decided this is a fixable thing. In fact, if there is any fandom you want to qualify in, I would say to you, as well, you still have time to qualify. (For fandom qualifying discussion, of course, go here.) So, I'm taking drabble prompts for currently qualifying fandoms, fandoms we're considering, and a couple of fandoms that will only make it in my wildest dreams (alas, Merlin RPF, alas!).

Please, give me drabble prompts for bandom, Merlin, Sherlock Holmes, White Collar, Psych, Sports Night, Good Omnes, Firefly, Supernatural RPF, and/or Merlin RPF.

And now, a poll:

I had no skill, but I had heart  
To add to my list of purchases for the week:
Tickets to Cobra in Dallas and Kansas City.

Someone is going to need to take my credit card away from me.

Watch, now, Panic and MCR will decide to announce the tour dates I've been waiting on forever.

In news not related to my stimulation of the economy ("oh, oh, right there, right there, baby," the economy keeps saying to me) I am in the process of importing all my stories to AO3 in preparation of remix, and so, may I add, should you. However, I'm not sure if I should mess with the random things that I will sometimes throw up to LJ, like beginnings of stories that I decide not to use. So, a poll:

I'm using my "Gee in a box" icon, because I have no baked goods in a box icon  
I have made cookies, for, well, most of the day. Because my oatmeal cookie recipe decided not to work, the first time, for reasons that remain beyond my understanding. But! But! I have made cookies, because cookies are awesome.

Later, I will make brownies. Which are also very awesome. I may have had a lot of sugar, you guys. Um. Probably.

and other non-green things which rule out osmosis  
I realized--well, a while ago, but with clarity to the fact that it could have meaning--tonight that I have a very strong distaste for Britishisms in Supernatural and House fic. Especially in House fic, and I can't decide if I blame the House writers and their need to have House be so, so mocking when England and it's inhabitants come up, or my deep sympathy for Hugh Laurie and his kick ass accent that must make him want to kill himself at least a dozen times each day. (Hell, half the House dialogue would make me want to off myself, and I don't even have an accent to try and hide.)

But either way, it grates on my nerves in odd ways. I like most of these things, usually. Lord knows I've picked up strange speech things on the internet, for any number of reasons, and I like them, but not in my House fic. I don't know why, but there are you.

And I realized tonight, much to my horror, that I am, in fact, probably guilty of exactly the same thing. Only in reverse.

So I made a poll.

I cut because when polls make the friends page scroll it sucks like a sucking thing, but there is a poll behind this cut and so you shouldn't ignore it because, well, yay poll! People like polls! Poll, poll, poll. )

All the TV that I Have Loved  
The bad news for Arrested Development keeps on coming.

This has prompted a very serious discussion between [ profile] musesfool and myself. And by "very serious discussion" I mean, I've been whining, and then decided to just take a brand new action.

Yes. I've decided that action must be taken, please attempt to contain your surprise. I have decided that I must start a TV channel for all my favorite dead, canceled-before-their-time shows. I'm not just talking reruns, because that's been done, man. I'm talking brand new episodes of Firefly, spanking new Arrested Development until it stops making me laugh for hours (we're not here to talk nonsense to Bob Loblaw), a resolution to Miracles, more wacky, snarktastic adventures in Wonderfalls! This might be my new goal in life, people. My lost loves, no longer lost, running back to back, until I say so.

[ profile] musesfool, however, detected a problem. I cannot run an entire network on four shows. I need more. So I beg you, LJ, give me your weak, give me your loved, give me your cult-like fandoms with shiny new bows. You've got an opinion on this, I know you do.

Everyone's got a show they loved that's gone now. Everyone's got a show that only they watched. Tell me what it is. I've got network building to do.

[Poll #610722]

Thank you for your input, please feel free to give me any other thoughts you comments you may have, and make sure to pass it around so your friends will tell me too. We don't want anyone missing out on this ground breaking opportunity to help build a network by the unrepresented masses for the unrepresented masses.

* The second, third, fourth and so on will be put in comments.
