And okay, this is so cool, it's just... if this works, I've just got my entertainment value for the next several days. http://www.animemusicvideos.org/guides/avtechbeta/index.html. Scroll doewn to "Producing your AMV," just... just gah.

It will kill your life, I'm guessing. It will devour your life and... I think this could well be vidding software? *crosses toes*

GIP
Made about five versions of this icon, with different text. Continuing to stare at the beauty that is Wesley. I want to stroke him and hug him and kiss him and make him better, dammit!

So yes. There's also a version that says "Wesley doesn't live here anymore."

*sighs*

*continues to stare*

So I'm going to play the random pairing generator game again, since I can't find the Daniel/Sam fic-of-hotness I'm looking for and am feeling pissed. Do you happen to remember it? It was D/S porny smutty yay, and then it turned out there was also J/D? It wasn't as bad as it sounds,

cut for your convenienceCollapse )

for those much-needed breaks from hell
Fandomized: Stargate fanfic, mostly S/D. Avoid the drabbles if you don't want J/S.

& the pearl: Buffy fic, emphasis on Faith/Buffy, Willow/Oz, Willow/Tara, Tara/Oz, Oz/Giles, etc. She divides her fic up by how good she thinks it is; she's a pretty good judge of her own writing.

Especially good:
Perspective
Shower (W/T smut)
Lesbian Chic (In which Harmony is an idiot)
Demo Tape Number One (Oz & Devon)

bright shiny BtVS and Angel stuff:
Tangled Synthesis. Artwork, vids, and some audio that defies explanation. Lots of spoilerish for S6 and 7 stuff, dammit, so I only have one of the vids and one of the sounds, but after S6 will be able to get lots more. Also some anti-spoiler icons that make me wibble in glee. Shiiiiny!

encounter at farpoint pt 1
Is this costume a reference to this (third row down, last picture), or are both a reference to something else?

Additionally: Riker needs beard! Picard/Q need more scenes together. Ari really should be paying more attention to episode, but is easily distracted.

The Alpha Site music videos.

Download "Time in a Bottle" (second down). I don't care what else you do on this site; this song is perfect for them. *now she dead from sad*

Is it just me, or is there a great potential for angst/secret love fic with 'Foothold'? Have you guys seen any? I'd be surprised if no one else realized it...

Btw, Lieutenant Simmons? (Message in a Bottle is his only significant role, though i've seen him in lots of other episodes)
I've mentioned to Ari before, he just doesn't look like he should ever be in a sci-fi show. He's entirely too pretty.

p.s. Umbridge/Filch fic is on it's way. I'm trying to decide if I should include Mrs. Norris too, in some really twisted way.

edit: p.p.s. Ok, so MAYBE there's some slash=o-rific material at the end of Foothold. You are no longer thought too slashy for your maybourne/jack obsession Ari. Promise.

in which I am a sad, sad fan:
This might be the saddest thing that I've done... reading a rant somewhere, "it' something you can't fix." And I thought, "hey, she spelt that word wrong! It's 'fics,' not 'fix!'"

Then I'm like, "Oh, wait, I'm an idiot."
wee Order of the Pheonix spoilersCollapse )
The end.

HP rec
"Inhabited By Winter", discovered after a long and futile search for good present-day Black/Lupin fic. Home at last.

(I read somewhere, by the way, that Black/Lupin is probably what you're looking for if you're coming from live-action slash. If you're more into anime, yaoi, shounen-ai, and Marauders-era fic, it's SiriusxRemus. Or something.)

spoilers
This rant takes all its examples from the first five seasons of Stargate SG-1. I figure if you aren't spoiled for that, you're probably not going to be reading this, and you should just get your ass off the internet, because I said so.

So I've been thinking that there are different levels of spoilers. First you've got Episode Level Spoilers: Beginning. And then you've got Episode Level Spoilers: Ending. And then you've got a bunch of stuff I'd term Random Spoilers (includes quotes, character bits, clips, etc), and then you've got Arc Level Spoilers.

Episode Level Spoilers: Beginning means basically you know the plot of an episode before you see it. Or the premise, in any event. For 1969, you know SG-1 got sent back in time to 1969 and there they shall stay, unless they figure out a way to get back. And for "The First Ones," you know that Daniel is kidnapped by an Unas. Basically, you know the premise. What happens in the teaser and possibly the first segment, nothing beyond that. You don't know what happens in the relevatory scene, and you don't know how the problem gets solved. Now, in an ideal universe, the previews, the episode descriptions on stargates.tk, and things like that would give spoilers for the beginning of the episode and nothing more.

Then there's Episode Level Spoilers: Ending. This is where you know the key thing that's revealed. It might not mean the literal end of the episode, but rather... things like "the bomb doesn't actually go off because it requires proximity to the 'Gate, and Janet adopts Cassie." "The insanity is actually caused by a Goa'uld-killing device designed by Machello, and everyone gets better." This is the kind of spoiler that can really impair the watching of an episode. It's also the kind of thing for which the word "spoiler" was invented. Because, let's face it, you really don't want to know how the conflict gets resolved. The point of watching something for the first time is not knowing exactly what's going to happen, and I think people certainly have a right not to be told.

Then there are scene-level spoilers, the random spoilers, the really cute picture in the icon where it looks like they're about to kiss, "where there's a will, there's an or," the hug in Need... things that I'd seen/heard/watched long before I actually saw the episodes with which they were associated. This sort of spoiler also tends to hinder the enjoyment of an episode, because the pr3tty is the reason I watch stuff in the first place. And if I already know where all the pretty is, well, how am I supposed to get the fangirlish happy squee when I see it for the very first time? (Of course, I still get happy fangirlish squeeing when I watch the tag scene of Serpent's Lair, and I've seen that approximately twenty billion times, so...)

Then there's Mini-Arc Spoilers. Backstory. Weaponry. The second 'gate. Stuff that doesn't really spoil the enjoyment of the episode but when you include Daniel's parents' death in fic, you write "spoilers for Gamekeeper" because that's what they are. Sort of.

And then there are arc-level spoilers. Things like "Apophis isn't really dead after Serpent's Song, but he is after Enemies." Things like "Sha're dies." Things like "Daniel ascends in Meridian." Does this sort of stuff spoil the enjoyment of watching the series? Well... maybe. Except I had all the big spoilers of this sort before I watched, and hey, I enjoyed it pretty much. And I had the big spoilers for Farscape too, and I enjoyed it and managed to be surprised by the arcs, even though commonssense should have told me what would happen.

See, the thing about the spoilers that are out now is, they keep on getting associated with certain episodes. And that, to me, transcends the line between arc-level spoilers (yeah, the reason Apophis isn't there in S5? He's dead) and episode-level spoilers (SG-1 kills Apophis for good in Enemies.)

Anyhow, this makes me feel all icky, and I don't like getting spoiled, and I really, really, really don't like getting spoiled, so yeah, shutting up now.

does it count as TV addiction when it's geeky?
I just might have to watch six hours of TV tomorrow. After tS, they're running Farscape Marahon type thingie.

LGM-Season of Death. I'm trying to remember if we saw LGM-Season of Death over the summer. I'm pretty sure we did, as I remember seeing it fairly recently, but I might be mistaking "downloading lots of sound clips" with "actually watching the damn thing."

Um... SG-1 musicvid awards are here when you finish finals.

I'm hard at work on my stargate_santa fic. Goddammit it's not as easy as it looks!

Evolution part 2 airs tonight in Great Britain. It won't be over till 2 am our time, so I think I'm going to attempt to go to bed early and wake up early-ish and see if stargates.tk is indeed God. Then I'll watch seven hours of TV tomorrow.

Of course, there is always the possibility of skipping Season of Death. You know. Because who needs Season of Death, anyhow?

On that cheerful note, back to trying to make these characters desire each other.

glitterfic (by popular request)
Title-less
Rating: Um, G?
Pairing: Trance/Thor
Warnings: This literally makes no sense. It's the result of staying up all night and spending too much time on fandom_wank, which caused the random attempts at speaking h@xx0r or however the fuck you spell it. I suspect the glitter is a result of my brain being permanently damaged. But seriously, read at your own risk. My brain hurts just looking at it, and I'm still in the same mental state I was when I wrote it.

Glitter! Trance knew what would make Thor prettier! Glitter! Of course she was partial to purple glitter, herself, but since Thor was her Very Favorite Plaything Boyfriend, she let him help her pick out the shininess! So there they were, in the local glitter store,, and there was soooo much shiny, it burned! Trance loved Thor very, very much, and she loved glitter, so she knew she wanted him to be T3H Pr3ttY! And she wanted to make him shimmer. So there they were, and there was the glitter, but Thor was crying! Trance was so sad! But on the inside, she was laughing, because she loved Thor when he was T3H AnGsTy!

Current Mood: still shimmering like it's 1999

quite random, sorry
I downloaded the eight minute vid clip from 48 Hours from the Versaphile and have not been converted to D/P. I have, however, fallen in love with Daniel's left eyebrow.

ETA: On rewatching, I have decided I have wronged Daniel's right eyebrow by singling his left out for adoration. Both are in fact adorable.

There's Stargate RPS. Yes, I went looking for it. There are exactly twenty stories, by two authors.

I haven't looked. I can't look. I desperately want to look. Ewwwwww, but.... ewww.
