30 Days of Firefly (or possibly 30 Days of the Tam Siblings Appreciation Society)

First of all, yes, I am on a "30 Days of [Insert Show]" spree, lol. Second of all, I was saddened to see that this was only on Tumblr and Facebook (when did those become the primary fandom interaction spaces? :CCC) and decided that needed to be remedied immediately. Third of all, I tweaked some of the questions because they were stupid. Fourth of all, let's go!

Dear diary: Today I was pompous and my sister was crazy. Today we were kidnapped by hill folk, never to be seen again. It was the best day ever. )

Mallory & Irvine: A Historical Mountaineering RPS Post (What? Yes! Oh God.)

I have been meaning to post more but could not really think of what, as I'm on a strictly limited allowance of Crazy Things My Cats Did posts. I have, however, recently rediscovered my love of reading (something I didn't have too much time for the past few years), so I've been devouring books like a Death Eater eating, uhm, death (or possibly treacle).

One of the things I have been reading about is climbing. I used to climb and used to love it but I've kind of grown too old and lazy to do it, and also, mountains are fucking terrifying. I mean, they're entirely awesome in every way but personally I'm done crawling all over them with a big neon-green sign reading "COME AND KILL ME" around my neck, you know?

Instead, I read about other climbers, which is great fun, very educational and very much less lethal.

So without further ado, let me present to you two mountaineering legends of the early 20th century and their Great Clandestine Gay Love Affair (As Totally Fabricated By Me):

I am probably going to hell for this (picspam-heavy) )

Lothlorien made this look so effortless

Today we went to Adrenalin Forest. If you're wondering whether it's as insane as it looks and sounds, the answer is it's MUCH, MUCH CRAZIER.

[info]lilithilien and [info]alsha were completely awesome in agreeing to be dragged up trees and forced to climb around between them on tiny wobbly wire bridges, swinging ropes, flying foxes, moving logs or a skateboard (yes, there was one part where you moved from one tree to the next on a SKATEBOARD, lol). There are five different levels of increasing suicidal insanity difficulty and height - Lil finished Level 3 and Alsha finished Level 4 and they totally rocked it! I went on to do Level 5 as well (25 metres off the ground, bridges and modes of transport increasingly sadistic, swaying trees) and did manage to finish, although I was compleeeetely knackered by the time I came back down.

V. disappointed that we didn't all get certificates of awesomeness out of this, because we so deserved them, lol.

Dear body: I apologise for the things I put you through today. Lots of couchtime and wine in your immediate future, kk?

Heeeeh! YouTube has EVERYTHING!

Sometimes I do so love YouTube and its complete irreverence for copyright, lol. IF IT'S EVER BEEN PUT INTO CIRCULATION ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, IT'S FAIR GAME FOR YT!

Last night, I found one of my favourite fairy tale film adaptations! I LOVED this when I was little \o/ And I actually still love it! Wheeeee. (Jakob was a prat but he was HOT. Well, except for the 'stache. And I adored Frau Hippe so!)



Good times.

Fic: Slayer – Love Hurts (And Then The Mop Goes Into The Dragon) (DeRo, Marc, Isabelle, Tom; NC-17)

The reveals for HoFest went up, so I can finally claim & repost this leviathan fic! On Archive of Our Own, mind, because it's way too long for IJ. FTR, I've done some final tweaking on it because I was looking at it during HoFest and found a few mistakes so this is a slightly cleaned-up version.


Photobucket



Title: Slayer – Love Hurts (And Then The Mop Goes Into The Dragon)
Author: [info]aldiara
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Roman Wild, Deniz Öztürk, Marc Hagendorf, Isabelle Steinkamp, Tom Reichenbach, Vanessa Steinkamp, Florian Wild, Marian Öztürk; Deniz/Roman, *Roman/Marc, Marc/Tom* [highlight for hinted-at other pairings]
Summary: Being an account of what transpired at the Öztürk/Wild household and elsewhere after certain events inconveniently recalling the recent past. A story involving ice musicals, skating games, bitchy skaters, clueless computer nerds, stage drama, porn, dragons, horses, untimely revelations, need for closure, questionable likelihood of attaining closure, and Many Many Issues.
Rating: NC-17
Warning(s): Excessive musical cheesiness. Defilement of sacred kitchen appliances.
Word Count: 44,000
Author's Notes: Originally written as a gift for [info]ktbob (<3333333333) during HoHoHo Fest on [info]no7_awz and posted here. Diverges from canon sometime past episode 1020, although Jenny's disappearance still happened. For the purposes of this fic, Katja never returned from Halle, and the Frank=Franziska reveal took place earlier than in canon. All ludicrous flaws regarding descriptions of skating, localities and ice show production belong to author.
Special thanks: 1) To my wonderful brainthird [info]lilithilien for agreeing to beta this monster and offering some incredibly useful and necessary suggestions. 2) To DG, for the dragon, for the musical plot (modified by me, because every GBWI story needs a totalitarian overlord complex bitch queen), for the title and the inspiration. 3) To [info]alsha, for the cheerleading, for helping with that dratted scene, for a dragon named Yuri. 4) To [info]ktbob, for ranting in the comments of ep915 that the only acceptable answer to the question "What changed?" should have been "I did."

Aaaaaaaand here's the playbill, lovingly designed by the fabulous Lil! *explodes in spontaneous bursts of squeeeeeeeeee and love* )

Cheerfully going bonkers as usual

I am so way overdue an update and as usual I fail at structure, so I'm going to nab [info]giorgiakerr's basic number format, kk? EVERYONE LOVES NUMBERS.

1. My mini-hiatus thing is over. It was spurred by a completely mad burst of creativity that had me doing nothing but, uh, well, creative stuff for a good two weeks and I couldn't be arsed to have a social life even online. Obsessive Aldi is obsessive. Anyway, I've finished a mural, I've cranked out a short piece of writing, and most importantly, in a bizarre development utterly at odds with all things to do with me and time management, I've finished my HoHoHo Fest assignment early. I KNOW. On the more normal side of things, it needs massive amounts of editing, and since I loathe editing with the fiery power of a thousand suns, I'll probably still find myself the night before the deadline going "OH SHIT OH SHIT I HAVE NOT FIXED ANYTHING AND NOW THERE'S NOT ENOUGH TIME OH SHIT", so all will be as usual, I expect. BUT YES, YES, IT IS STRANGE AND UNSETTLING, I DO NOT GET THINGS DONE ON TIME, WTF. But I am just the tiniest bit chuffed about it. And I hope my giftee (??? is that the proper term for person receiving gift?) will like it. WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

2. Summer is here YAYAYAYYAY. I walked all the way to town today (it's about 40 minutes along the bike path, which is an elevated lovely hike through the hills with lots of trees and meadows and yes, sheep) listening to music in the sun and then lazed around on the green near the cathedral and it was glorious. I LOVE SUMMER.

3. One of the rose bushes that I planted about two years ago in the mad and over-optimistic notion that I might actually, you know, take care of them and that I then promptly left to wither and die, has suddenly decided to burst into bloom. The other one would usually come out with maybe... one tiny wee rose a year and I'd be all "o_O LOOK LOOK IT'S A FLOWER! AM MADLY TALENTED NURTURING EARTH MOTHER!" and this one literally hasn't done anything since I planted it other than sit there looking bare and sullen. Over the past months, it's randomly started growing like mad until it reached a freakish height, and right now it's ALL OVER roses as big as both of my hands together. They are dark red velvety and stunningly gorgeous and stunningly fragrant and I'd take a picture if the only camera we currently owned wasn't the one that Alsha's parents sent her for her birthday except then it took three months to arrive and by the time it *did* arrive she was in England so now I think it'd be tacky to play with her present before she gets back and can play with it herself, so there's no picture, just take my word for it, MY ROSES ARE GORGEOUS AND THIS IS EXCITING, OKAY. (wow, that was a tangenty sentence.)

4. Speaking of [info]alsha, yes, she is still gone and appears to be having a whale of a time (bizarre expression, surely). I miiiiiiiiiss her <333333

5. I need to watch my tendency to stick "<333333333333333333"s onto absolutely everything I say, lest it lose its significance, don'tcha know.

6. I am currently only sliiiightly inebriated but plan to be more so later, as I have pretty much been living on a diet of cider and strawberries. Wheeeeeeeee!

7. Was worried about having no work for a while, but I think/hope it's getting back to normal? I think I may have mentioned a time or fifty how vexing the flip-flop between "ARGH DYING UNDER MOUNTAINS OF WORK, CANNOT COPE" and "ARGH, WILL NEVER EVER GET WORK AGAIN AS LONG AS LIVE & PETS WILL STARVE & HOUSE WILL NEED TO BE SOLD & WILL NEED TO LIVE UNDER BRIDGE EXCEPT CANNOT ACTUALLY REMEMBER WHERE NEAREST BRIDGE IS" states of freelance employment is. Why does one not get paid for managing very hard task of, IDK, existing? Bah.

8. Birthday was fabulous explosion of love, including the sparkliest of greetings from Cologne (some of them complete with horrible fake Austrian accents, lololol <333333333333333333333). *squishes marvellous friends*

9. Still in cranky state of disenchantment with Show; on the upside, though, fiercely in love with fabulous canon-fixing fandom *cuddles it*

10. I HAVE NOTHING TO PUT HERE, I JUST WANTED A 10.

11. I have a sick craving for watching the Dawson's Creek finale *cackles madly* SHUP, IT TOTALLY MAKES ME CRY.

12. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

13. I thiiiiiiink I am caught up with everything I meant to get caught up on IJ and neeeaaarly there on LJ. If there is something that will crumple and die unless it is validated by a comment from me, please yell at me and point me at it!

14. *squishes f-list*

OMG WEEKEND WHEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

MY GIANT JOB THAT NEARLY KILLED ME IS DONE!!! (27,000 words in 42 hours, people. Time-bending and its practical application!)

I HAVE GBWI AND BITCHY GIRLS TO WRITE ABOUT! YAY!

[info]alsha'S BIRTHDAY SHINDIG WAS A SUCCESS! YAY!

I HAVE SHOW TO CATCH UP ON! YAY!

SPRING IS HAPPENING AND I SUDDENLY LIVE IN THE JUNGLE! YAY!

I AM SO FUCKING EXCITED ABOUT THIS:



HOHOHO FEST at [info]no7_awz YAY!

Sep. 3rd, 2010

Free time? OMG what's that??

Exciting times. We're taking an EKP break. I'm not sure I know how to do that! EKP rambling )

LotR rambling (with picspam to prove Sean Bean and Timo Hübsch are long-lost brothers) )

Fingersmith rambling (with trailerspam) )

And of course, hair talk! )

Right. Off to explore the [info]bbtp_challenge masterlist some more, scowl at my work, and oil my very rusty original-material writing skills.

*squishes the lovely f-list*

PIMPING MY GIRLFRIEND. HMMMM, SOMETHING WRONG WITH THAT? WHATEVS.

[info]alsha IS DIPPING HER TOES INTO IJ SPARKLEDOM. GO FORTH AND MOLEST HER SAY HI, F-LIST! *TYRANNISES*

\o/!!!!!!

May. 20th, 2010

TODAY IS A GOOD DAY

Actually, toweek is a good week. I'd like to order me up 52 more like it, always presuming it keeps up the awesome.

Er, oh hai flist? I fail at time management as usual but I wanted to wave in everyone's general direction and go WHEEEEEEEEE.

Reasons why life rocks this week:

1. [info]graspthethorn is baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! *throws kiss hands like whoa*

2. I <3 MY shiny brainthirds.

3. Some icky money worries have been allayed, at least temporarily *starts printing own money*

4. Shiny Show is unbelievably fab and only promises to get fabber (I am not sure why I'm bouncing in utter squeeeeee at the most heartrending spoilers in recent history but I CANNOT CONTAIN MY JOY. It is madness. No wonder we confuse RTL, lol.)

5. [info]alsha is awesome *schmoops all over her* (however, if she whinges that she's not higher up than 5., this item is getting spitefully deleted altogether). We had our anniversary this week, which I suppose should be fucking scary, lol. Nooooooooooooooooo it was fab. Although contrary to what rumours people are spreading, there were no strawberries and cream, or even crisps.

6. Muses are talking. They're actually babbling. All of them. At the same time. Which isn't v. conducive to getting ANYTHING done, but I am sitting ehre stupidly in the midst of the creative din beaming like a moron. Carry on, guys.

7. I have like seven million angry songs on loop. They, too, make me bounce. My emotions are whimsical and senseless, though not in annoying Stella-like fashion, I hope.

8. I've been watching Skins and loving it.

9. Sleep has once again been successfully excised from life. So much better without it!

10. MY FLIST CONSISTS OF THE BEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD *OUTPOUR OF VIOLENT LOVE*

11. Random random random, TEXT GOES HERE. TYPING IS SUCH A BOTHER. WHY CAN'T I JUST UPLOAD STUFF DIRECTLY FROM MY HEAD TO MY SCREEN, I ASK YOU.

NEW AWZ COMMUNITY!!

COME PLAY! COME PLAY! COME PLAY! COME PLAY!

[info]eskimo_kiss

*does excited puppy impersonation*

[info]lilithilien and I found a spare 2.7 seconds in our day that wasn't being properly leveraged so we decided to do something with it and set up an AWZ comm to have a hot illicit affair with its counterpart [info]no7_awz. While the latter is focused on fanworks, we wanted to have a place for AWZ meta, ep discussions, random crack, vidding tutorials and, y'know, whatevs.

COME CHECK IT OUT!

And check out our cracky friending meme and rub noses.

GOOL-y Goodies: Aldi's Verbose Trip Report of Doom (With Extra Sap, Yuck)

So, that wee event thing that's been eating mine and [info]lilithilien's lives for the past months... happened. Without major catastrophe. Which still confuses my pessimistic little heart no end: "What? Things went shiny? People were happy? Had a good time? No one got throttled, abducted, lost, or otherwise abused? REALLY?"

Really. Minor hiccoughs aside, the weekend was ****ING AWESOME (yeah, sorry, NHLB-ers. I stalked your sekrit chatroom and witnessed the happening of your sekrit in-jokes ;)), unforgettable, ecstatic, blurry with fabulousity.

I've been nabbing photos from everyone left, right, and centre since I got back, since I didn't bring my own camera, so I think it'd be rather pointless to repost other people's pics, lol. (Well, maybe one. Or two. That I really really liked.) I shall focus on rambling instead. BECAUSE I CAN RAMBLE, Y/Y!


Bring snacks. And water. And possibly a potty. Here there be babbling. )

(Now I'm home and believe it or not, I STILL have leftover condoms and lube. And I really am the last person to need them. *makes water balloons*)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LIL!!!

*pounces and snogs*

OMG what a crazy year it's been. If a year ago I'd told you about ANY of the stuff that was going to happen, you would've laughed and patted me on the head and been on your merry *G*

LIL, A YEAR AGO YOU HADN'T EVEN EMBRACED CAPSLOCK. LOLOLOL.

Not what I meant, I know. But still. CRAZYSKATES.

I see I'm late to the party and there are already piles of fabulously sparkly gifts (WHICH, OMG LOL!!!!) but I just want to tell you that you are amazing and I love you so much it's nuts. *squishy soppy hugs* You're one of the fabulousest people in my life EVER and I don't even know what I did when all I had was a full brain instead of a third of one. I can't wait to see you again IN A FEW WEEKS OMGYAY!!!!

Due to recent craziness and me having forgotten how to make extra hours appear in my days *sadfaces* it looks like my birthday present is unfortunately going to be a bit late *ducks in shame* However, to whet your appetite a bit, I can tell you that it involves...

cracky pictorial morsels )

For now, have lots and lots of snuggles, snogs, and more cake:

I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!

10 Words You Need to Stop Misspelling

Oct. 13th, 2009

Look, I'm dating a smart chick

I hassled, harried, harangued and harassed the lovely [info]alsha until she posted her musings on International Coming Out Day someplace that was not f-locked, because I want to pimp the awesomeness of it, and her.

Because, WORD.

Winter, What Winter?, Telly-Watching, & the Latest from Cracky Sparkly Obsession Land

*pokes in head, does perfunctory cleaning, feeds the starved dustbunnies*

I biked to town today! I thought it might just about kill me, but actually it was really fun, and I did not even crumble before the Hill of Hell (living in a town that's all built on hills is very pretty until you have to manouevre them on a bike). We'll see if my thighs will turn to knotted wood overnight, but I was pleasantly surprised.

This winter has been insanely mild. Like... it's laughable to even call it winter. We don't get snow, but last year it was pretty cold and we had that killer storm that sent like 500 trees flying through the air and smashing into things. This year has mostly been sunny and slightly cool, lol. It's hardly ever rained. It hasn't stormed. The temperature's rarely even dropped to zero. And now it's not even mid-August but it's been so warm and spring-like that I was hot in my long-sleeved shirt (no jacket) today. Crazyskates! Not that I'm complaining. Grandma asks if we don't miss the snow everytime we talk, and I can still respond with an emphatic "NO!", lol.

Otherwise, not much new is going on. I'm still busy bending the time/space continuum, getting by on 10 hours of sleep a week, and being a busy little bee on EKP and the awesomesauce that is AWZ lately. The lovely [info]alsha and I are watching One Tree Hill, which I am notable unimpressed with so far, and she's recently got me hooked on Sugar Rush, which is just all sorts of adorable and hilarious, with just the right amount of snark. Plus, lots of lovely girlslash! What's not to love?

Being so wrapped up in my cracky German soap and watching lots of British shows lately has really kind of put me off mainstream American shows, I think, lol. We started watching One Tree Hill because we both quite like cheesy teenage shows to veg with (witness my terrible cheerful love for Dawson's Creek) but ugh... everything so far has been so ham-fisted and anvil-dropping and eyerollingly moralising and glossy and wooden. Pls to be giving me some characters that are actual people instead of walking stereotypes. And some good writing would help, too.

Anyway, life's pretty good. Could do with less job and more money, a clone or seven, and more hours in my day, as usual, but in general, can't complain.


Bunch of fandom stuff behind cut to spare the non-obsessed )


And now... I have ice cream, gummis and, uhm, work. Rats. Why must one work, why, why? I wish to spend all my time doing shiny things! *pouty*

As ever, I do read the f-list even if I don't post much lately. Love you all! Hope you're having great weekends! *smooches*

May. 29th, 2009

One of these days...

I swear I'm going to do an actual update. I swear I will. As per usual, it will probably start with "I AM ALIVE".

In the meantime, though, my show made my head explode today. In a good way. OMFG.

Nicht so.  )
