I still can't really think (bleah left ear hurts, may have to suck it up and go BACK to clinic) (that's always fun. "These antibiotics don't work, I need more") so, a meme:

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

I'm doing most recent too but skipping one because it's a WiP. Let's see (I know already this is probably going to be THE LOST LAND OF FOREVER RUN-ON SENTENCES) (also doing last lines, not just one):

1. Rey gripped Poe's arm tighter. "It's been a long time," she said. Maybe too long. "But we'll find him, Poe. I know we will. We'll find him." And then we'll bring him home.
No Man is an Island (the Drowned World remix), Star Wars, Poe and Rey

2. Jarvis rolled over too, shifting closer, and rested his forehead against Howard's back, one hand on Howard's shoulder. Howard lay motionless, waiting to make sure Jarvis was really asleep, before he reached out and up to shut off the lamp. Jarvis's left hand slipped from his shoulder to Howard's waist, and Howard reached up with his right hand to hold it in the dark.
Indelibility of Allegiance, Agent Carter, Jarvis and Howard

3. And underneath Marina's words, like a divine descant, there was another voice rising up, somehow in harmony with or resonating with itself, the voice you'd always known and could never have really forgotten, the first voice you ever knew, telling you the best and oldest lie of all: Enough. Enough, you have suffered enough. You deserve peace. My daughter, you are safe now, it is over. You are home.
I'll Never Tear You Apart, The Magicians (TV), Marina and Julia

4. He didn't try to defend himself; whatever she could give him, help or its opposite, he was willing to take, and he knew she'd also been just where he was now, helpless, dependent. He didn't mind losing; not this time. He closed his eyes and waited for her to bring him back, however she could.
I Remember Standing By The Wall (The Pax Natasha Remix), MCU, BuckyNat

5. "Okay, come on, Captain Rogers is about to crash and burn. You can call Talia and yell at her about invading your privacy in the morning. No, leave it, Steve, the memory of our sainted mothers will forgive us if we leave crumbs on the table one fucking night. Come on, Mishka. Let's go to bed."
the hurts of human life, MCU, Stucky


I dunno, besides OMG, GIRL, STOP HOGGING ALL THE COMMAS, themes....people relaxing? People going to sleep? Weariness? Excessive wordiness? "Put on a suit, go down to the bank, fill out an application, get a loan, and buy a full stop"? *hands* ...also, three juggernaut pairings, and the only graphic sex is the TINY pairing in the small fandom.

Who said I was dead, puppy?

The most recent episode of American Gods, 1.04 - reactions )

I really, really liked that. I really did!

Another thing I liked: a meme from [personal profile] musesfool: Share the final line of five of your fics — your favorites, or the most recent ones. I'll go with most recent, but two come from drabble collections, so I just sort of scrolled until I found one I liked from those:
I’ll say it again until she hears me, until her breath catches, like the click of a dashboard dial. (Beekeeping for City Girls Without Roofs, Neko Case, "Prison Girls")

When Peggy felt herself open up simply for the joy of it, for her own sake, without flinching, her own excitement at the thought of a long life was a sudden downpour that she passed through and shivered in, after. (Drabble, Peggy, for the first time, after the war, MCU)

BE GENTLE WITH ME, Sebastian's hindbrain screams. (Meeting Redford, Part II, MCU RPF)

The passerby shook her head. Beneath the skin of her cheek, something shimmered, something gray and sick. The old witch drew in a breath, but it probably wasn’t anything. Nothing like that should ever happen here. (Wind Gets In (The Red Blood to the Bruise Remix), Little Red Riding Hood)

"You feel things so deeply, and it makes you good, not weak." She kissed his temple once, in the dark. "Someone's got to tell you that." (Why Talk About Love, MCU, Peggy/Bucky)
Note to self: Do not get so predictably focused on breath, even if you're not releasing one you didn't know you were holding.

Today got to quite a late start, but I got myself to a coffee shop I actually like and can work in and I put together a resume I'm pleased with, and if I can get my cover letter together tomorrow (and hear back from folks I list as references), I will be in very good shape.

Here are all the fics I've made on Dreamwidth (which will probably be posted to ao3 later). This will be updated as I write other fics.

I have some things I should be working on and I'm procrastinating because stuff is daunting.

I've had graham crackers for dinner. Not entirely convinced it is a good choice but at least I'm not hungry anymore, and it was easy.

Okay, okay...I'm going to give the things a go.

Yes, I saw some of his 007 work.

But for me? His Saintly adventures on the silver screens of our living rooms are worthy of our better attentions.

Vaya con dios, Sir Roger.

Yesterday Victoria Day get together went great. We had a good lunch, had fun with technology. Laughed and learned a few things.

Despite the rain we did grill hamburgers.

Today was sunny, in the lower temps for this time of the year. My back is doing good. My appointment at the chiropractor helped with things we don't have the time to work on because I'm usually in a not so good shape.

PK Subban and the Nashville's Predators won and are going to the Stanley Cup Final. Go Preds. Bye bye Ducks. The Ducks had two, ... two of their players thrown out of the game for game misconduct. I am happy they are not going to the Finals.

On the Eastern Conference front... we might know who tonight Sens or Pens. Both are hurting bad but... Pens have a general aka Sidney Crosby Hockey robot, that breathes, lives, sleeps and dreams hockey and Stanley Cup. So... I would not count the Pens out.

I'm xstitching. Working on the castle part of the Dragon attacking Castle piece.

Bonus

An example of Crosby living, breathing hockey

Today is mild and cloudy. 

Round 1, we picked up sticks along the sidewalk by the house.

Washington hawthorn and red-twig dogwood are blooming.

Round 2, I cut weeds from the septic garden and trimmed grass from around the goddess garden.

I'm lucky if I can get the same answer three times running on a calculator.  But on college entrance exams, I scored 66% nationally.  That means 2/3 of people are worse at math than I am.  Somehow.

I'm often appalled at how many of those people seem to work in economics and government.  I mean really.  I could do better than this.  >_<

Farewell, Roger Moore, my favorite James Bond because he played the role with charm and humor and humanity. And here, answering the Proust questionnaire for Vanity Fair a few years ago.

Icon Retrospective

goodbyebird: Buffy Summers looks down a road outside of Sunnydale. (BtVS the road goes ever on)
[personal profile] goodbyebird
Since I recently did my 100th icon post, I just wanted to give myself a bit of a bird's eye view of how my process has evolved over the years. So picking one icon per post and gathering them all here, in chronological order.

Bit more that 100, as I started out posting to my personal journal back in the day. )

Well. My eyes are bleeding. I remember some of these so fondly, like I acutely remember nailing it. Icons still really function as touchstones for me in fandom though. Tiny memory puzzle-bits =)

Trying to come to terms with a difficult critique. After talking it through with [personal profile] bell, [personal profile] troutkitty, and [personal profile] daemonluna, I'm beginning to be able to see how I can address the issues. Some are more difficult than others. The problem, of course, remains how much time I can afford to devote to it. Meeting with my supervisor on this topic this afternoon.
havocthecat: faith lehane is totally setting a bad example (btvs faith bad example)
[personal profile] havocthecat
1. These days, I have bad days, and I have worse days. (I also have some good days. Somewhat less for now. This is not my norm, but there you go.) No, I don't really want to talk about it. Right now, anyway. I'm sure I will eventually. Personal problems abound, and I love all of you for being here for me in spite of those.

1A. Thanks to all of you who are patient with my off days when I get a little snappish. Those are less under my control than I would like. Serenity is hard to come by. (Please make all the Firefly tv series jokes you can. :)

2. I have a Tumblr. I have auto-crossposting of public posts set up for the people who have taken off to Tumblr and don't check Dreamwidth anymore, but who want to keep up on my life. I do not log onto Tumblr. Ever. This is not going to change. I don't have the time to be on multiple sites, the mental energy to deal with Tumblr, or the emotional energy to put up with Tumblr's toxic folks.

2A. Yes, I am aware you can curate your Tumblr experience with xkit or Tumblr Savior or whatever the latest trendy scripting extension is, but I don't have time.

3. I do the same with auto-crossposting public posts to Facebook, but I do log onto Facebook occasionally because my LARP runs on Facebook.

4. If you're reading on another site and you want the access-locked posts, you will have to make a Dreamwidth account. That's more personal content and less fandom and nerd content. Well. A little more nerd venting too, I guess.

5. I have many other social networking logins, but mostly don't participate, because I am a lazy social networking slacker.

6. Work is busy and only getting busier. Same with offline obligations. I do my best to reply to comments, but you can also get in touch with me via email to havocthecat@gmail or a Dreamwidth private message.

Day 24 - Song meme

24. A song that makes you want to fall in love

Mad World - Gary Jules. Because the madder the world becomes, the more my desire for someone to love, bond to, go through the increasing spiral of chaos w/.

This song has lots of covers, but I still prefer this version--possibly because I 1st encountered it in a fanvid.

The Last Line Meme

Because I think we all need some mindless stuff at the moment, have a meme that I took from [personal profile] musesfool.

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

1. There was still happiness yet to come...for both the living, as well as for the undead. Wrap The Cloak Of Night Around His Shoulders. Dracula (1968), following the wedding between Seward and Mina.

2. With this bittersweet chapter concluded, they would see to the rest of their lives. Let The Shadows Become Your Shroud. Crimson Peak (2015). That’s basically Alan and Edith limping off to see to their wounds, mourn Thomas, and just live, in the aftermath of a massive exorcism of a ghost from reality itself.

3. There was solace in the shadows, for both young and old vampires alike. Give Your Soul To The Night. Fright Night (1985). Jerry is revelling in winning as quietly as he can, while settling down for a nap, surrounded by turned teenagers, in his coffin in the basement.

4. Only the dead remained. Blood Begets A Curse Anew. Legend (1985). It probably is as grim as it sounds, as Darkness basically teleported a changed Lili (help me; I keep writing Lucy) out of the dining hall, after teleporting the goblins away to somewhere presumably unpleasant. Oh, and should anyone be curious about this story, do beware of a bit of animal sacrifice at the beginning, and references to torture in the middle.

5. And we gladly feast on those that would subdue us. Because We’re Addamses. Wednesday Addams is thinking, and thereby reiterating a statement made in the first Addams Family film.
