I'm already a couple of tissues down, so I'll keep this brief.  I've felt bad all week about getting back to the love meme to leave more love, but uni and work and friends and family and rl in general have been swamping me.  Anyway, the last thing I expected to see when I got there was me.  I'm so often left in genuine awe of your talent and creativity and I feel like I do so little for fandom besides love it (and by it, I mean you), so to see the kind things written there, well, you've made my day/week/month/year.  I'm so deeply touched - you have no idea.


I feel so privileged to share the flail with such a wonderful bunch of people.  I just want to get you all in a big hug and squish you all 'til you're gasping.  There's a reason why there'd been an 18 month gap in my frequenting of fandoms and the past 9 months have dispelled them all.  Thank you, so, so much.  

Well, now that I'm feeling a little overwhelmed, I think I'll go just one more tissue (and a nice cup of tea), listen to that lecture I missed and then get back to spreading the love.

OK, I've gone and done it.  Expect me to turn up in your twitter or dw life in the next week or so if you're there.  lj's just been driving me nuts - I'm still here, not going anywhere, but I need alternatives during downtime.  Wasting the hour I've scrounged together for fandom is getting too hard, so I need alternatives.

:waves to new friends:
... It just doesn’t work. You cannot catch up. I should have had this posted days ago, but LIFE, y’know? Anyway, three imprtant things:

1. The rather spiffingly awesome scarlet_starlet  wrote me birthday fic last week. THANK YOU!!  It's funny and sexy and full of take-the-piss antipodean stereotypes (hence part of the funny, though the bit about the koalas and kangaroos being unpleasant is absolutely true). Some of my kinks, it seems, are obvious. Also, the word "conniption". Which is nice. ;D

The Author's Summary
Arthur makes a bet with Eames. Conditions are that the loser has to be the other man's slave for a whole week. Because life hates Arthur, he loses.

Or there's my summary ...Collapse )

2. The rather wizardly awesome rakspatel  in the BBC Sherlock fandom also sent me a fandom gift which was mind-bendingly awesome but isn't for sharing. I still have to say THANK YOU!

3. Finally, just a reminder to please visit help_japan  and bid. I'm still trawling through it all to place bids.

It's been a rumour for so long: http://www.slashfilm.com/joseph-gordonlevitt-alberto-falcone-the-dark-knight-rises/

Not my first choice of character (I was hoping for Nightwing, but knew it was a long shot), but all things considered, it's not a disappointment.  It should be epic.

Just for anyone who may be interested in (at least) the whole 'try before you buy' approach.  LJ have a free 2 week trial on offer.  Have at, people.

<lj user="cunning-croft"> posted this manip and I love it.  I just really do.  Enough to share, even.  It's pressing so many buttons (No, not JUST those buttons.  The other buttons, too,).

It was originally posted here.

Have a Merry Christmas or a great day off, whichever, it's all goood.  I've finally done everything: Decorations are done, food's prepared, pressies are wrapped and I'm suitably suited and booted.  I have half an hour for a coffee before heading into the chaos that is Christmas at my sister's house.  I'm finally feeling the warm and fuzzy that only comes with the anticipation of spending time with a large slice of family.  The bitching comes later ;)

So while I have the time and the warm fuzzies I'd like to take the opportunity to wish you all the very best and to say, "Chin up!  It'll all be over in a couple of days." XD

So, 8th Dec release in Australia and I'm TRYING to be patient.  Then a mosquito decided to have a feast on my right foot last night and I made a trip to Coles for the Stingose.  And there it was.  

I swear there was a chorus of angels singing as I spotted it.  I couldn't hand the 25 bucks over fast enough.  Five over the best price I've seen advertised, but I HAD TO HAVE IT!  Someone obviously didn't get the memo about the release date (the Kmart next door did because I checked in case I was going mad).

BUT NOW I'M AT WORK!  D:  I wonder if I could fake the sudden onset of bubonic plague in order to be sent home ....

I had planned to get some study in today, but it's a fair bet that's just not going to happen now.  I think it's almost worse knowing I have it but can't watch D=

Still, YAY!!

For those of you who'd enjoy it, cherrybina has a multi-fandom rec thread at http://cherrybina.livejournal.com/178506.html.  I only got through the first 10 or so posts in the time I've had this evening (which I ended up doubling, but I have to sleep now) and I'm enjoying myself immensely.  I've found some old fics I'd lost or forgotten and some I haven't read before.  GO CONTRIBUTE.  I was too busy reading to do that yet, but I will when I'm not in the middle of my hell week.  Is it Saturday morning yet?

The weirdest part is being a little nostalgic for Inception fics I haven't read in ages.  IT'S ONLY BEEN A MATTER OF MONTHS!  HOW THE HELL DOES NOSTALGIA COME INTO IT??  I can understand with some of the other (older) fandoms, but INCEPTION'S ONLY BEEN A MATTER OF MONTHS!


Also, 174h15m 'til I can buy the Inception DVD.  Not that I'm counting ;D

Greetings, All.  

Go read <lj user="Starlingthefool">'s Skin Deep on AO3 at archiveofourown.org/works/131263.

Go!  NOW!

It's an Arthur/Eames AU/Alt back-story and I JUST DON'T HAVE WORDS. XD   I admit to some investment - I spent an eternity following it as a WIP on the kink meme (community.livejournal.com/inception_kink/11941.html) but, YAY!, it's finally finished and she's edited and posted it in full.


N.B.: May also include gratuitous sex. :)
