Meme  
Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] veritas_st to distract me from the storm that is scaring the crap outta me.

Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

who is the big spoon/little spoon
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
who uses all the hot water in the morning
what they order from take out
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
who does most of the cleaning
what has a season pass in their DVR
who controls the netflix queue
who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working
who steals the blankets
who leaves their stuff around
who remembers to buy the milk
who remembers anniversaries

If you're lucky I might write a drabble too.

First Meme of 2011  
1. Do not look at the comments.
2. Take a look at my userpics.
3. Post a comment with the icon of mine you associate with me. Leave commentary if desired.
4. Repost with your default icon and profit.

Also I have been working on my resolutions and reading list, think I may take a tip from [livejournal.com profile] maharet83 and make a sticky post

How is 2011 treating everyone?

Othello has eaten my soul.... now how are all of you?  
I'm having the crappiest of crappy weeks. I am behind on EVERYTHING, but on the plus side I have just put the finishing touches on an overdue essay and am getting ready to hit the SEND button yayayaya

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] rebekahfair cos I could use some light-hearted conversation.

What was your first impression of me?

And

Has that changed at all?


_________________________________________________________________________________


Now for something that cheered me up immensely some conversations with my wee man this week.

On listening to the song God vs Satan by Biffy Clyro

Robert : "Mum is Satan the Devil?"
Me : "Yes sweetie"
Robert : "Why is God reversing Satan?"
Me : *confused* "Huh? oh no sweetie it is versus it means God's against Satan"
Robert : Why is god against the Devil, tell me the story"
Me : Goes into a long in depth family friendly story of the war and fallen angels
Robert : "So God threw Satan out of heaven for being naughty?"
Me : "Well pretty much Hon."
Robert : "But how was he naughty?"
Me : *Gets ready to break down pride, wars and original sin to a 4 year olds level*
Robert : "Did he smash all Gods windows?"

On watching The Sorcerers Apprentice at the cinema

Me : Actually enjoying watching Nic Cage as a medieval sorcerer
Robert : In a loud and indignant voice "That's not Merlin, he's really old!! Merlin isnt old he little and has big ears.... like me" (should mention that he watches the BBC's version of merlin with me)
Me : no you're right sweetie this is a story about Merlin when he is old.
Robert : "Oh", (still loud) "Where's Arthur then?"
Me : "Arthur's not in this film hon"
Robert : "But Arthur is always with Merlin"
Me : "Not in this story hon." sighs with relief as silence reigns for 30 mins
Robert : Mum?
Me : What hon
Robert : "When is sorcerer Mickey coming on?"
Me : "Oh no this isn't Fantasia honey, Mickey isn't in this."
Robert "At all?" *glares at screen*
Me : "Nope just those sorcerers"
Robert Kicks feet through rest of the movie and leaves proclaiming that it was "all right" despite having no Sorcerer Mickey, the WRONG Merlin and no Arthur or Excalibur and a funny looking dragon.

Top Fives

Top Five Fanfic Writers

1. [livejournal.com profile] autumn_lilacs

Ames was my first friend on lj and we met through a fic on spn betas. I betad a few stories for her, and with her encouragement started writing some of my own, which she in turn beta'd. The best thing about this arrangement was that I got to see her fics first and they never cease to amaze me. She is the proof that OFC does not a Mary Sue make. She has a talent for creating real, warm, flawed women (and men) that you come to love as much (in some cases more *hugs Becca*) than the characters you know. Whether it is dealing with ancient sometimes insane vampires, helping King Misha in his crusades, rediscovering the supernatural world in a post apocolyptic world where everything and anyone are not what they seem, watching Dean play doctor or seeing how Daddy Sam copes in a world where everyone and anyone wants to kill him and his baby girl. She never fails to make me laugh, cry, squee snort and fall in love again and again and again. Seriously if you have not read this girl, go NOW!!!!  She has a massive collection of stories, totally diverse ranging from het, slash, gen, romance, action, adventure or just plain crack and she is awesome.

2. [livejournal.com profile] faithbeckett

Becks was the girl who took my love for Dean/Cas and turned it into a full blown obsession, she also introduced me to the wonder of the OTP of McShep (something I think she regrets each and every time I kick Cam) and her stories always manage to just hit my buttons, always!!!!!  unfortunately I have no links as she has taken her fic down as she works towards becoming a kick ass full time writer HUGS but a list of my favourite authors just isn't complete without her in it.

3. [livejournal.com profile] fleshflutter 

I was first recced to this author by [livejournal.com profile] maharet83 when she pointed me in the direction of this beautiful Dean/Castiel piece.  At the time I was not a wincest reader or a J2 fan, but this story blew me away and it's shades of Sam/Dean made me want to explore Wincest further (which i then did and fell in love with) I then decided to jump in with both feet and started reading her J2 Big Bangs and the obsession began.  I think I have read every single piece that this girl has written and there is not one that I don't love.  the imagery is always beautiful, her stories flow and she creates magic with words, her characters are real and wonderfully interactive and her AU's literally take me to another places where it is possible for Jared and Jensen to be super spies.  :) the only piece I haven't read actually is her current J2 wip mainly because I am saving it up to read altogether otherwise I think waiting for chapters will make me cry :D

4. [livejournal.com profile] dreamersdare

After discovering and falling in love with Big Bang last year I went on the lookout for old Big Bangs and came across this beautifully dark J2 piece.  After becoming a rabid fangirl I struck up a friendship with the writer and started reading more of her work and even when I don't even know the pairing her skill and talent still; draw me in.  

5. [livejournal.com profile] moonlettuce

I found this writer through Dean/Castiel but when I found out she also wrote my otp Mcshep I was over the moon.  Her stories are varied and immense and if they have any faults it is that they are too short and don't go on forever.  Seriously when I got this girl in the secret angels exchange I almost cried because I was terrified of writing a Dean/Cas after reading hers!!!  There are way too many to list all of her fics, but some of my favourites are  the right way to write alien sex pollen fic, an AU with john as a runner, The sweetest McShep first kiss,  EVER and lets not forget some yummily awesome Dean/Castie



Top Five Fanfictions

Ok there are some crossovers here with the above list [livejournal.com profile] dreamersdare's  Black Cartel Verse  for example, will always be one of my favourite fics EVER, but as I have linked it above, I will give another five here with the assumption that this is in here too :)

1. [livejournal.com profile] autumn_lilacs ;Our Father Verse ;This is a wonderful story of the Winchesters in the future.  Years after their final battle, the brothers are settled and happy, or as settled as they ever could be.  Dean is married with two kids he adores, Sam is moving on and trying to move on from his past and the family are finally moving onwards and upwards.  But life is never that easy with the Winchesters.  Featuring some kick ass females, special mention to Becca the epic OFC librarian that owns my heart.  It has twists, turns, dips and moments that will make you laugh, cry and want to gather the boys and their family up and give them a HUGE hug.  Ames had managed to make a believable future for the boys, without falling to the pitfalls of making anything schmoopy or their lives too perfect and retaining the edge of darkness that SPN has that makes it so addictive.  Yes I do ♥ this story rather a lot, can you tell.

2. A while back I fell in love with a show Terminator the Sarah Conner Chronicles, when it was cancelled just as it became more awesome than ever before, myself and [livejournal.com profile] maharet83 were very sad puppies :( then one day [livejournal.com profile] maharet83 told me about a fic by [livejournal.com profile] halcyon_shift that she had just found, with words something along the lines of You NEED to read this, it is Season 3 in fic form so of course I did, and of course it really is!!!! This is everything I wanted from Season 3, with spot on characterisations a grip on the Terminator canon like you would not believe, a totally believable plot and some of the kickest ass females that ever ficced. It has twists and turns and moments that will literally make you hold your breath. It really is one of those stories that if you are in the fandom, you MUST read.

3. A long long time ago I fell in love with fanfiction, and it was THIS FIC [livejournal.com profile] lanning 's Identical series, that made me do it. Smallville fic set around Season two I think. It had a Clark and Lex that I loved and adored. It was the first ever story that had me mixing up show canon with fic canon in my head, and it really was the begining of my love affair with fiction. It is Clark/Lex coming together through some major obstacles, but also introduces some strong secondary characters. The writer knows the canon and the characters (not just from the smallville verse) inside and out and it comes through in every word.

4. This story ([livejournal.com profile] britomart_is 's The Air Moves in to Fill the Spaces Where My Body's Been, made me believe in Wincest for the first time ever!!! Yes it is NC-17 and a lot of it is action of the sexually variety, but it is also beautifully written, and is just the right side of delicious fucked up ness that makes a relationship between Sam and Dean not only believable but inevitable. [livejournal.com profile] britomart_is has a way with words that make you fall into the story and leave you gasping for more. There is a sequel which is just as delicous and just as amazing.

5.  Days without feathers by [livejournal.com profile] pyrebi was recced to me by a friend and when I read it, it literally blew me away. It is totally different from my normal choice in fanfic, but it is so beautifully written and so heartbreakingly perfect I had to mention it here. It is a story of Jess's family coping in the aftermath of their daughters death and what they know, or think they know of the boy who had loved her. There are really no words for just how much this story moved me.

Voice Post  
Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] rebekahfair I thought I'd give this a bash, even though I know [livejournal.com profile] faithbeckett is going to start on the Scottish Leprechaun thing again. It only allows me record 1 minute :( so it didnt let me answer my last question so I'll let you decide on that one :P

Thank goodness I talk fast.


Voice posts are fun, right? You get to hear funny accents if your friends are from far, far away. All we really want is to hear your voice, we don't care what you're saying. So here's a list of typical meme questions that would otherwise be boring, but when communicated aloud - well, it's entertaining. Answer these questions in your post, and encourage others with voice-posting abilities to do the same.

1) What's your name?
2) How old are you?
3) Where are you from? Are you living there right now?
4) Is it cold where you are?
5) What's the time?
6) What are you wearing?
7) What was the last thing you listened to?
8) What was the last thing you ate?
9) What was the last thing you watched on tv?
10) What's your favorite tv show? Why?
11) Quick! Find a book, or something with text on it! Flip to a random page and read some of it! GO!
12) What was the last movie you saw? How was it?
13) Do YOU think you have an accent? Talk about that.

Writing Meme  
Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] dreamersdare . The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble/ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing from me (as long as I know the fandom). It can be slash, gen or het. It can even be original fic. It can also be from any verse I have previously written.
