[livejournal.com profile] mr_picard gave me the age of 20!

I lived in an apartment in Nørresundby..

I drove nothing of my own. Buses, dude.

I was in a relationship with B and it was all cute and happy and... *sigh* those were good times.

I feared that I was never going to graduate college. Oh how simple things were then. (Not that I was wrong to fear such things, as it turns out.)

I worked for a while as a cleaning lady at a daycare and some offices. After that I went to college.

I wanted to be right where I was. Just moved away from home, my first boyfriend by my side, new hobbies, new friends, starting my life at last.

So, I've decided to go ahead and do this 100 Things Challenge. I may or may not end up regretting it, but since there's no deadline, I probably won't stress out over it too much. And since there's no rules for how often to post, I can't even promise any sort of regular updates on it. I may post 3 entries in one day and then nothing for 2 months. We'll just have to wait and see.

My challenge will be: 100 WIPs or plot bunnies of mine, which I hope to finish, or just really like. With a little luck this may actually help me finish a few things too. Hope dies last, after all.

I expect I'll be posting snippets, musings, random plot notes or research plans. Whatever the fic or bunny in question demands.

This should be fun!




{Take the 100 Things challenge!}

ladydrace: (Plotbunnies From Playboy)
Hmm. I'm really damn tempted to do the 100 Things Challenge. Because I think I have an idea on how to make it a multi-purpose challenge for myself.

See, I have at least 100 WIPs or at the very least plot bunnies lying around. I suspect that if I posted snippets and maybe even shared some of my thought processes behind them, then maybe I'd end up actually finishing some things. And that would be seriously awesome!

What do you guys think? 100 posts about fics that aren't finished? Torture? Teasing? Insanity?

It's tempting, that's for damn sure...

Tagging myself, like a boss!

1. Go to page 77 (or 7) of your current ms.
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written.
4. Tag 7 other authors. If you would like to do this meme, consider yourself tagged!


Because this WIP started off in a whirlwind of typing, reaching 10k in next to no time... and then fizzled horribly. Which is unacceptable. So I shall use this meme to poke at it with the proverbial pointy stick. The original plan was to make it a Sam/Gabriel fic, although the slash seems a long way off still. Also includes Dean/Castiel, but so far mostly cracky. Which is okay. (Also, lol! The section below turned out to be one of the best bits. Win.)

..............


Gabriel was shaking the hand he touched Sam with, as if he really did touch a live wire, and quirked a displeased eyebrow at Dean. “Seriously, would it kill you to ask nicely every once in a while?”

 

“Pretty please, with a fuck you on top?” Dean quipped, his lips tight with annoyance.

 

“You better hope I never take you up on that, handsome,” Gabriel countered. This prompted Castiel into speech.

 

“Gabriel, please,” he said, sounding more like a mother gently scolding a child, than a brother asking for help. It did seem to have the desired effect of cooling the tempers and Gabriel eventually sat down, snapped himself up a candy bar and explained.

 

“Well, kids. It would seem we've hit a bit of a snag with Pestilence.”

 

Dean blinked. “Wait, I thought he was gone.”

 

“He is. If not forever, then at least for the next couple of centuries. But apparently the sucker went out with a bang,” Gabriel replied, unconcerned. When Dean started making impatient hand gestures, Gabriel rolled his eyes and continued. “It would seem his last act in this life was to make me contagious.”


.............

Dun dun duuuuun!

From a sudden and totally not thought through bunny. SPN AU Sam/Gabriel. And since I only have 2½ page so far, I started from line 7, ignoring the page count.

------------

“Your type is young, cute and corruptible. Plenty of those around. Besides, if he's not into guys, you get your shot. Oh! That reminds me,” Gabriel said, while digging his cellphone out of his slightly too tight jeans. He thanked himself mentally for wearing his look-at-my-ass jeans for work this morning, while tapping out a short text and hitting send. Not thirty seconds later, the door to one of the adjacent offices flew open and Balthazar stuck out his head, scanning the cubicles for Gabriel.

 

“What the hell's that supposed to mean?” He frowned when he found Gabriel. “Dibs? On what?” Gabriel just grinned broadly, leaving Ruby to heave a tortured sigh and point a brief thumb in the direction of Mr. tall, floppy-haired and adorable, who was currently trying to puzzle out the floor plan on the wall, which probably hadn't been updated since the late 60's. When Balthazar spotted him, he rolled his eyes, but still sent Gabriel a good-natured smirk. “Let me know when he gets sick of your sugar addiction and Ruby's plans for world domination. Then I'll be here to show him a really good time.”

 

“In your dreams, B!” Gabriel yelled at Balthazar, whose only reply was to slam his door shut. The raised voices seemed to catch the attention of the newcomer, but he quickly averted his eyes when Gabriel caught him staring. And was that a blush on those smoothly shaven cheeks? Even with the sideburns, which frankly would look more at home in the times where the floor plan was new, the look was endlessly endearing. And hot. Gabriel had such a thing for the tall ones, but the youth and shyness was totally a bonus.

 

Gabriel spent a brief moment debating whether he was actually too old to be going for the guy, but then he remembered that it was either him or Ruby. Balthazar would at least make sure the guy knew that it was just sex, but Ruby liked to mess with emotions and oh boy, this kid looked like the type she would gobble up and spit out in quivering chunks once she was done with him. Gabriel liked Ruby, because she was a good friend, and part of being her friend meant accepting that she was horrible in relationships.

 

Not that Gabriel had the best track record either, but at least he always tried to do right by the people he was with, no matter what exactly was on the table. For the moment, all Gabriel knew for sure was the he wanted to get much closer to the newcomer and his life had taught him that avoiding risk taking was pointless. So he smoothed back his hair, hitched on his best confident smile and strode over to the object of his attention.

 

“Hi there. Can I help you?”

 

The guy jumped and turned around to face him. Gabriel guessed that the kid had tried to politely ignore the commotion earlier by pretending to be really interested in the damn floor plan. Apparently a little too well, since he looked mildly shell shocked when Gabriel spoke.

----------

Not sure if this will go anywhere or not, but it's what I've had open for a while. I think it's laughing at me.

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

[livejournal.com profile] zooz gave me these things:


Supernatural:
Actually, if I weren't such a rabid shipper/pervert, I doubt I'd even like this show. I'm not all that into the early seasons. I find them mostly boring and too cheesy. I'm much more invested in the seasons that include the angels. But even so, there is too much gore, all the female characters are killed or treated like shit (or both) and so many of the episodes make me cringe from second-hand embarrassment. That said, the cast is amazing, the actors are really fucking talented and there are some really great episodes, especially in the angel story arcs. So I watch for the slash, basically. And Richard Speight Jr. God, I wish he could come back on the show somehow.

Favorite character:
This is kinda vague, but that's okay, since I really suck at picking just one favorite, even in separate fandoms. But my favorites include: Elim Garak, Data, The Archangel Gabriel, Castiel, Leeroy Jethro Gibbs, Benton Fraser, Merlin, Nightcrawler, Toad, Sherlock Holmes, Elizabeth Bennet, Bruce Wayne/Batman and many more. Clearly, what makes a character a favorite of mine is not a fixed recipe. It can be anything from a pleasing voice to a feeling of kinship or something as shallow as a hot body. (Oh, hi there, Mr. Darcy. Unf.)

Food you can't live without:

In reality, I think I could live without any type of food. My diet has always been changing, sometimes over a period of several years, but I cannot think of a single thing I would miss horribly for very long if I had to go without. I'd probably miss meat an awful lot, but if I could have bread and potatoes, I'm pretty sure I'd get over it. Cola would be rough to give up too, but I've gone long periods without, due to money troubles or just for the heck of it. So I dunno.

If you could live anywhere, were would that be:
I like my country an awful lot, so I doubt I'd ever leave Denmark. But I would very much like to move out of the city, perhaps to an old farm or something, surrounded by fields and open spaces and bright stars. I'd love that. Maybe some day.

Life as a fangirl:
It seems to be the only thing that keeps me from going insane, so I indulge myself as much as I possibly can. When terror grips me and the world outside seems full of danger, it soothes my mind to delve into fanfic or some silly TV show, even if all it does is make me forget the world for a while. Living in a brain constantly in a state of emergency has taught me the value of escapism like nothing else could. I used to see my tendency for diving into fantasy as something undesirable and inconvenient, but as things are now, it's something I truly could not do without.

Youtube vid:
I'm going to interpret this as a request for a vid. So here's one. For some reason it never fails to cheer me up. :o)




Favorite artwork:
Gosh, so many favorites. But one that springs to mind immediately is this one:
Out of the Cage by NaSyu. It's just so beautiful and it's pretty much the perfect illustration of my mind's version of The Archangel Gabriel as he is in SPN. Totally badass angel. Yessss. *makes grabby hands*

The first one was over all too soon, and since I'm not exactly lacking in ships, here are 10 more!

RULES:

1. Think of up to 20 ships you support.
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
3. Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.
4. Fandom hints will be given if asked in the comments.

More mixed batch this time. 4 het ships, 5 slash and one femme-slash. :oD

#1: The half-breed and the captain's son.
#2: The technological virtuoso and the one who caught him.
#3: The snarky gunslinger and the navy hard-hitter.
#4: The master of one-liners and his sister in law.
#5: The earth-shaker and the fast-tracker.
#6: Hot stuff and vanilla ice.
#7: The desert prince and the "rent boy".
#8: Lambchops and the old-school cop.
#9: The drunken hobby-librarian and the sheriff.
#10: The once and future maid and mistress.

(Just for added confusion, the pairing in my icon is NOT on the list. Mwahaha!)

I suspect these might be way too easy for anyone who know me just a little... Only 1 het ship under here. The rest is slash.

#2: The genetic freak and the puzzling alien.
#3: The fuzzball and the slimer.
#4: The underground practical joker and the ex-blood-junkie.
#5: The nerdy featherduster and the emotionally stunted sword.
#6: No-touchy chick and makes-shit-explode dude.
#7: Nanook of the North and the bespectacled stand-in.

Strike through the things you've done:

100 pointless questions under here )

ladydrace: (Doktor Svans)
I almost forgot, [livejournal.com profile] nerdboyout  gave me 5 more things for the association meme, so here we go!

Merlin: Yeah, it's something like my #2 favorite show ever. Although, this latest season is being... less than satisfying. But there are many episodes yet. IT CAN STILL BE EPIC! And the slash will never stop being awesome. *nods*
Star Trek: I'm a trekkie, no doubt about it. While I do have my favorites, I'm forever in awe over the entire universe and I fervently hope that the future will look like that at least partly. The only real downside is the complete lack of gay characters. And speaking of:
Gay-friendly: Even before I got into slash I was very accepting of gay/queer people. I don't even think I can remember ever having thought there was anything strange about it. When my in-the-closet gay friend asked me in our teens what I thought my mum would say if I told her I was a lesbian, my reaction was something like: "She might be surprised, but she loves me, so she'd accept it". So it may very well be my mum's doing. She's awesome. :o)
Toddlers: Yeah, plural. Because one thing you never really consider when you have a kid is that then you'll have to deal with an incredible amount of OTHER kids. This is both a good and a bad thing. Bad because some kids are just scary, good because the rest are just so damn cute.
Intelligence: Oh wow, I'm flattered. :o) I try very hard to be clever and well-informed, but as time goes by, I see the truth more and more in the proverb that the more you learn, the more you realize how little you know.

ladydrace: (Sid Is Hot)
Just because.

Comment to this post, and I will list five things I associate with you. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your LJ (or just add a reply back to me). Other people (including me) can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

[livejournal.com profile] mr_picard  associates these 5 things with me:

Garak/Bashir: No wonder, since it's my all-time OTP and I still have a vision of gathering all fanfic ever written about these two. A girl can dream!

(Green) Pea: The most important thing in my life. That fact that he's something people think of in connection with me must mean I'm doing something right. :oD

Alexander Siddig: Sid! Yeah, I'm a fan. Damn it, [livejournal.com profile] mr_picard you know all my addictions. :oP

Merlin: Case in point. *goes back to writing Merlin porn*

Denmark: Yay! My tiny country gets some attention! Granted, this jump probably wasn't so hard for [livejournal.com profile] mr_picard , since Denmark and Germany share a border. A small one, but still. But I guess I should count myself lucky that I have yet to come across someone who claimed Denmark was the capitol of Sweden or something...

This was coooool. :oD


ladydrace: (Geek Kissing tip 4400 het.)
Comment to this entry and I'll give you a letter. List ten things, people, places, beings, thoughts, feelings, that you love that begin with that letter and then post that list on your journal.

[livejournal.com profile] myworldmytrue  gave me F!

1. Fanfiction! Reading it, writing it, anything! Heck, even writing about fanfiction is mazing for me! I'd include regular fiction in this, but nothing gets my juices flowing like fanfic.

2. Flowers! Sadly, I tend to kill the potted kind, but a bouquet will make mo SO happy you have no idea. Wanna court me? Buy me flowers. I'll put out.

3. And speaking of, do you have any idea how many awesome sexual practices start with F? Frottage, fellatio, felching- uhm...I'll just leave that here.

4. Fantasy, the literary genre. Do I even need to explain why? Dragons, baby! DRAGONS! Unicorns, elves, orcs! And while we're on it-

5. Fairies. In any incarnation. From the tiny little Fantasia fairies to the scary and powerful beings from the Dresden Files. Fairies are awesome and if the people using this as a slur knew just how badass these creatures are, I doubt they'd ever throw it at people as a means of insult.

6. Freedom. Freedom to be, to think, to live the way you prefer. I wish we all had freedom. And poo on me for not thinking of this until #6...

7. The Fifth Element - the movie. I adore that movie. Here is a post where I explain more: http://lady-drace.livejournal.com/472682.html

8. Family. Despite the occasionally fucked up and disfuctional unit we present, family is so very importent. It's about knowing your roots and seeing parts of yourself in others that you might not find anywhere else. And it's not about blood ties. It's about who you're tied to forever, in any way that may come about.

9. Feathers. Not wings (despite my recent foray into wing-kink). No, just feathers. How they feel, how they look, how they're put together. It's a wonder of nature.

10. Fancy Rats. Meaning, rats meant for pets. As much as I admire the animal in itself for its survuval skills, I do prefer the cuddly kind bred to be cute and companiable.

I would make more of this post, but alas, time has escaped me and it's time for me to pick up my baby. Onwards!
