I *was* going to do NaNo but then Uncharted 3 came out and... yeah. Apparently the Writer Gods or whatever are punishing me for that because now I have stalled spectacularly on my Anderfels fic. So! The usual response to this is memes. I posted this on my tumblr, but I'd love to do writing here too.


Give me a character and a quote and I'll bash something out for you. Simple as that!

All postcards are away! Also, I have a ton left, so if anybody else feels like asking for one, don't be shy about PMing me your address and I'll get one to you ASAP.

To celebrate, a meme I've been saving!

The first five people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble/ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

Hello to everyone from the [ profile] dragon_age friending meme! Coincidentally, I just got a getting-to-know-you meme from [ profile] cowards_kiss so LET'S GET THIS THING STARTED.

Meme rules:

- Comment with "Come at me, bro"
- I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
- Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
- Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

My questions! )

Gif meme from [ profile] madzilla !

1. The 2nd to last GIF in your folder is who you will marry.
2. The GIF that is your age # will be your reaction to his/her proposal.
3. And your 25th GIF is how you greet him/her the morning after you’ve married.
Marriage gifs! )

You're now a timelord. The 41st gif in your folder is your companion. The 17th gif is your arch enemy.
This turned out awesome, ngl )

Random tidbit for today: My brother downloaded Undead Nightmare yesterday and I've been watching him play through it. This occurred while picking outfits for John:

Me: US Army outfit! US Army outfit!
Brother: ....why?
Me: *long pause* it's hot.
Brother: *funny look* *chooses default outfit*

And now a meme from [ profile] vocal_bard :

2. I will give you a letter.
3. Post the names of five fictional characters beginning with that letter and your thoughts on each.

I got C: Runaways, Batgirl, Nextwave, kid's books and HINABN under the cut! )

Also I changed my default userpic because the old one kept getting me into trouble! Still Wondy, just less blood now.

The year in Fandom meme! Look, you know I'd do this eventually.

meeeeeeeeme )

Also I'm just going to leave this here.

Oh Doctor Who.
giefu: (The British are coming!)
A meme (kinda?) based on Mitch Benn's 'I'm Proud of the BBC' song, which if you haven't seen/downloaded you really should. The BBC is my first and strongest love (I was listening to Radio 4 practically in the womb) so this was inevitable, really:

Below is a list of all the shows mentioned in Mitch Benn's I'm Proud of the BBC. Bold = love (or have loved) it, Plain text = neutral, Strike through = never seen / listened to.

The list is here! WARNING I gush about Radio 4 a lot. )

Q&A time!

Five questions from [ profile] skelody , hooray!

What's the first book you remember reading on your own?

This rather dreadful series of books called Animal Ark, which were about a girl whose parents are both vets. they all had alliterative titles like Rabbit on the Run or Pony in the Paddock and they were exactly the kind of thing a very young girl reading on her own would love. (To make me sound cooler I was going to say something like Asterix but nope, it was Animal Ark. I can only plead that my tastes have improved somewhat)

Your Bedroom
You are standing in your bedroom. It is probably around two in the afternoon, but you can't be sure -- portals to Unknown Dimensions block every conceivable escape route, including the windows.

An empty backpack lies on the floor.

Make a rope out of bedsheets, fill my backpack with books, knitting stuff and biscuits (yes I keep biscuits in my room shush) and pick a portal at random, tying the bedsheet-rope to my bed so I can get back.

Anything you really want to learn, but doubt that you ever will? Why?

I would love to learn another language- maybe Mandarin, or Latin, or just become fluent in one of the ones I already speak, but I don't think I ever will because that kind of thing requires time, effort and proper classes and I am very lazy.

Pockets or pocketbooks? (Or like, messenger bags or backpacks or hidden compartments in your shoes, but that's not as fun to say.)

Pockets! (do not get me started on the Women's Clothing and Pockets Rant, we'll be here all day) and this bag:

Only mine is canvas with a blue-and-white sailboat pattern and a pink, blue and white strap. It's beautiful. I love this bag.

obligatory FIVE:
Which Doctor is... your Doctor?

Oh no, I can't decide! it used to be Ten until the series got all weird and bombastic, and now I like Eleven because he's funny and professorish, but then Ten is still very handsome and funny and... argh you see my dilemma! I shall have to give them both the top spot.

Want to heckle? Wish to receive five questions of your own? Comment below!

Protaginists today for [ profile] meltedpeep ! This one was very fun to put together, I hope you enjoy it.

*cue powerup theme music* )

Tomorrow, the one I'm sure will be entertaining: Crossovers I haven't done yet and What I Look For In Fanfic. Should be good!
giefu: (PANIC)
Today I'm answering [ profile] solaeris ' 'Name your top five antagonists'.

Sit down at my table... put your mind at ease! )

Tomorrow, protagonists!
giefu: (Doctor Who)
Yes, I am going to spread this out! Partly because I promised pictures and if I cram them all in one post it will be one helluva long post, but also partly because it'll be nice to do a frequent posty thing. I'm answering the questions in no particular order, so we'll begin with [ profile] skelody 's question: Top Five Non-Romantic Relationships.

This turned out... way more bromantic than I intended )
giefu: (waggle waggle)
Ask me my Fannish Top Five [Whatevers]. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post. Possibly with pictures.

Beacuse it's been oh, at least a month since my last meme and as we all know I am a total memewhore.

I have not been very productive at all, have I? (This summer has, let me be perfectly candid, been an exercise in frustration from beginning to end.) Well, anyway here is a meme that I remembered I promised to do a while back.

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment. (That way you're not leading the questions asked to fit the characters.)

2) Ask your flist to post questions in the comments.

For example:

'One, Nine and Fifteen move in together. Is this a really bad idea?'
'Under what circumstances might Five and Seven fall in love?'
'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?'

'What Pokémon would Eight have?'
'Write a drabble in which Three and Eleven FIGHT CRIME.' (...possibly not technically a question.)

3) After your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

DOOO EEET. I haven't written anything in ages and I need to get back on the metaphorical fic-horse.

Meanwhile, please enjoy this picture of Rome what I drew.

I call it 'want your bad Rome-ance'
giefu: (The British are coming!)
I'm back in Cardiff! And all it took was a fiendishly hot and slow 4 hour coach journey. I swear, if I never see the interior of a National Express coach it will be too soon. Anyway, thought it'd update you all because when I got back I saw THESE

So rest assured, [ profile] futuresoon , the t-shirt arrived safely and uncontaminated by fondant! I haven't done the taste comparison yet partly because my brain has melted and partly because I have bigger plans for it than just scoffing the thing and telling you all what it tasted like.

And now, a meme from [ profile] oz_the_bobble :

Comment to this post and I'll give you three of your fandoms. Then copy and paste the questions into your journal and fill it out.

She gave me Hetalia, Doctor Who and Merlin )
giefu: (Kung Fu Action Jesus- In Space!)
Well, I must be more burned out by the end of term than I thought because I haven't been able to write anything. All I've wanted to do is play ME2, watch Supernatural and read manga. Oh yes, and watch the Glee finale and get sniffly because I am a big sap. In which capacity I have been performing admirably, but really this needs to stop. So I've tried to kick start my writing with this meme.

1. Put on your music program on shuffle/random and start playing songs.
2. For each song, write something inspired by it. You only have the song length. No pre-planning and no writing after the song is over. No skipping songs!
3. Do 14 songs and post. Make sure to include the song name/artist.

Reading these back, I seem to have been a bit preoccupied with death and serious business like that. So, um, sorry if these seem a bit samey. I hope the variety of fandoms at least makes them kind of different (and now I need to go and worry about my mental state).

Fandoms: Hetalia, Hanna Is Not A Boy's Name, Doctor Who, Supernatural, The Princess And The Frog, Avartalia )

giefu: (YAY)
Number of dissertations completed and handed in: one

Sense of personal achievement: immeasurable

Times I want to read Paradise Lost again: NEVER.

That's it! One module down, only three more essays to write! (aaaand then it's on to my Master's but let's live in the moment, shall we?) I AM SO EXCITED YOU GUYS.

And now, because this is the way I celebrate things round here, a meme:

*You give me a character or pairing, and a number from 1 to 1092.
* I find the song that matches the number on my iPod library (if it's a video or a podcast I'll pick the song that's nearest your number), and write you something that incorporates both song and character/pairing.

The desktop meme that [ profile] futuresoon just did:

1. Stop what you're doing. Print Screen.
2. Print screen your current desktop.
3. If you have Photoshop open, print screen.
4. If you have a music player open, print screen.
5. Pick a folder, open it, print screen.

This will probably surprise nobody )
giefu: (The British are coming!)
Back home for reading week! It's great to be back, especially as Mass Effect 2 was waiting for me. Oh Commander Fem!Shepard, I don't care what Bioware says you are the number one space hero of my heart.

So, to celebrate my return, here's that meme that's been floating about.

This is a variation on the 'top five list' meme, but this time, you get to ask about the characters I write.

The questions can be silly (five times America should have kept his mouth shut), serious (five things the Fire Nation can't forget), a mixture (five trips the Doctor didn't take), meta (five fics I never wrote), or whatever else strikes your fancy. Please try to stick to characters for whom I've written substantial things, or characters about whom you know I have some kind of solid headcanon. Any fandom for which I've written is fine. Bonus points for original characters--feel free to ask twice!

Via my usual source of such things ([ profile] futuresoon ) another meme: This time with icons!

Comment here and I will pick six of your icons, you then copy and paste this in your LJ along with your explanations/comments/squeeage about each one.

This is good, because it will give me practice adding images to comments

icons and rambling under the cut! )
