* First things first: Happy Birthday [profile] silme711!!! Have a great day!

++++


* Nothing much to tell other that I've been really busy with work and helping out with at my grandparents and trying to avoid the summer flu my colleague has been hosting for the last week. So far I've been successful with all but the last thing. I'm on sick leave for the next few days. I feel like I've been run over by semi. I was all over the place on Thursday but was okay for the next few days until yesterday.

* I managed to meet up with [personal profile] sandrine twice and saw "Bastille Day" with her and [personal profile] slippery_fish the week before last. Then there has been football and the office betting game. I actually won a cinema gift certificate.

* I'll be so very lazy this week I'm already back in bed after the very exhausting trip to the doctor's office this morning. I'll have some chocolate (thoughts of food make me all nauseous) and make some tea and then I'll watch some Bollywood.

* Feel free to rec me fluffy feel-good fics... :)
the_milky_way: (sam/dean (eyes on you))
* Oh Whitney... Another great one gone.

* Joined some thousand others yesterday protesting against ACTA. [livejournal.com profile] slippery_fish and me met up to join a protest march. The weather was actually nice enough. The sun came out and the temperatures were bearable. Afterwards we went to a Mexican restaurant and had good food. After that kind of busy day I was so very lazy today. I wanted to clean my place but in the end just watched movies and listened to podfic.

* And I wrote fic. Not a long piece, just a little prompt I promised someone. It's not finished but there's only the ending missing. So I'll need a beta reader soon. Anyone want to read through a schmoppy little, non-AU J2 thingy for me?
It felt so good to write again. So good. Now I just have to save this feeling, this drive over to my Big Bang idea (and the last part of my AU).

* Two weeks until vacation. Plans are not final yet but if it works out it will be very cool.

♥ Didn't realize that I kinda went offline here. I've been reading my flist every day but it seems like I don't have to say all that much these days. Right now I'm so busy with packing and planing an preparing for the job interview that I don't really have time for anything else.

♥ Okay, that isn't really true. I went shopping with my grandma today and finally ended up with representable clothes that I can wear to a job interview and in which I don't feel like a bloated pig or 60 years old. I also managed to be very antisocial at R's birthday party but there were children and people I didn't know and everyone else was either not there or coming later. Lucky for me, [livejournal.com profile] slippery_fish felt equally antisocial, so we ended up talking (later with a very cool girl and some guys and then again only with the girl) and hiding away moist of the time. The wine and the chocolate cake were good though and we had waffles.. :)

♥ The rest of my weekend was spent fighting getting sucked into a new fandom (damn you, Hawaii Five-0), which was very much useless because I ended up reading way too much fanfic and getting totally immersed in them. That happens when I'm behind with a show that is okay in the beginning but gets kind of very wow once you have time to mainline the rest of the eps you had lying around. Uhm, how did this happen? So SPN is still my main fandom with my two main OTPs but this new fandom sucks me in so much right now that I can't even write the stories I really, really need to finish. One sign that a pairing got to me is the fact that I have icons. *headdesk*
Well, at least I'll have a show if/when SPN is gone (and right now I don't want it to be gone because I'm so back into it that writing Sam/Dean makes sense again). but hey, again a show I've been into from the beginning on.

♥ I'm so very much looking forward to next week. Because by then the job interview will be done, I will have the keys to my new place, I will hopefully have painted my rooms and maybe even half my stuff up there already and most of all I'll finally have time again to actually sit down and write. Because guess what? I fucking love my Big Bang idea now and I want to start writing and plotting and cursing myself for signing up again. I also want to sit down and finally finish all the open prompts and send the J2/FaF fic off to be betaed. I need more time, more hours in a day.

♥ *goes back to slightly freaking out over everything, mostly over the interview*
the_milky_way: (sam/dean (working))
♥ Not much to tell. Internet seems to hate me these days, since it vanishes randomly for hours. Things with the apartment are settled now though. Will meet the former tenant Friday and get everything else settled. OMG, I can't believe I'm moving. This is just so.. weird. I'm in the middle of packing my things and trying to figure out the color pattern for my new living room. It's all exciting as well.

♥ No job news. *sighs*

♥ In between packing and figuring things out I had a busy weekend. Was out doing some marathon shopping with J and C on Saturday. In the evening I met up with Jessica for some cocktails and TexMex. I needed that time out and it was very good to just sit there, drink something and talk. And again, I love Texas Iced Tea way more than Long Island Ice Tea.
Then I met up with C for some ice skating fun on Sunday. Man, I have been on the ice in years and I really should have brought my own skates, this rentable ones were torture. But it was fun anyway.

♥ In the meantime I'm trying to catch up with H5-0, I'm four eps behind because I didn't have time to watch it. I keep reading fic though. new fandom? Who knows.
Southland's season 3 is over now and I sure as hell hope they'll get a fourth. I want to know how things go on with John, Ben and Sammy, especially with the way things ended.

♥ Sad side of things is that I didn't have time to write anything. I didn't even try to work on the FaF crossover because I couldn't get in to the head space of one of the guys. Bah.. this was going so well and now I'm stuck. *flails* I'm also very unsure about the ideas I came up with for Big Bang so far. They all kind of suck and I'm not convinced that I'd want to write any of them. I need to collect ideas. I know I can write 20k in two months, even in one if I have to, that's not the problem. I just don't have an idea that I really like.

For my inspiration, some new J2 on set goodness, as a picture )

♥ Meme: I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] deannawesson
1. People who have been tagged must write the answers on their blog and replace any question they dislike with a new, original question.
2. Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

I tag: Okay, I bend the rules . I tag 8 random people who can see this... go

♥ I saw this around and thought it was a good idea... proof me wrong if you want.

So since I probably won't be able to send any Christmas cards this year (safe for the special snowflakes that always get one and to who I own packages anyway. :)) I thought I'd offer something else for the holidays.

Leave me prompts for drabbles. Can be Christmas-themed or not I don't care (and I only promise drabbles because I still have so many things to write). Yoiu know my fandoms but you can try and convince me to write something else. I just have to know about it (no promises though, leave an Plan-B prompt, too).

So yes, leave me prompts!!! Or you know, I might even try to draw or make icons. Torture me.

Considering how 'many' of you participated last time I think I won't have much to do... so I'm willing to submit to the torture... ;=)

Also this is purely for procrastination purposes and to distract myself from real life.

I have been working on the outline for the SPN RPS AU crossover fic I was somehow tricked into writing. I have some scenes done already and I don't know if I like the tone of the story so far. I like the plot, I like the idea, I like it all in all but I'm not sure about the voice.

The thing is I have this scene where I keep things vague so not to spoil the surprise but I'm not sure if it's working.

So there goes your mission (if you should accept it), tell me if it's working and if not what I should change. Should I use names right from the beginning or not?

This is the first scene after the Prologue, so everything is still new.

Warning to [livejournal.com profile] chani_atreides and [livejournal.com profile] morgentau, contains spoiler for fic, but go ahead and yell at me for fucking it all up.. LOL

Have a 'little' snippet from the SPN RPS (J2) / Fast and Furious crossover fic )
the_milky_way: (sam/dean (wee boys))
Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] sandrine and [livejournal.com profile] elless18!!
Have awesome days!
<333
*hugs*
the_milky_way: (Default)
I come bearing... fic:

-> finally managed to finish and post [livejournal.com profile] kros_21 birthday present.
Sam/Dean, set during and after 5.14, with spoilers for 5.16. Haven't written anything like this in a while. Not with the Winchesters anyway.
And it's sort of "Fix it" fic, which I don't even know if it is working here... But hey, "30 Seconds to Mars" made for a good title for this one.
"A Warning to people, Good and Evil ( This Is War)"

This also means that I am *this* close to finishing my Sam table.

***
Pictures:
-> [livejournal.com profile] silme711 asked for pictures of my new bed and bookshelf. I took some of my sort of 'new' room.
The bed )
The bookshelf )
The rest.. including my new summer dress )

-> Bonus pictures because Kitty was just there.
The video though is for [livejournal.com profile] purequicksilver, since catching that on a signle picture has always been hard. Never thought it would work this well though, it was just a try. :)
Kitty the cat )

***
On to the random stuff:

-> I am missing Southland already.I don't want that to be the series finale because honestly? It let a lot to be desired and I am so not ready to give up on this show.
There is so much more to tell. I want more. More John, more Ben, more Lydia and Nate and Sammy... hell even more Chickie. Just you know, more of it all.
So I hope TNT will be nice.

-> Tweaked my lj-layout a bit. As in taking a really, really old code and making it fit the headers.
I think it works way better now. Now resizing or moving when I have the bookmarks closed.
Nice.

-> Off to get ready and then having drinks with friends.
Hope the weather holds, don't need rain today.
the_milky_way: (jensen (really?))
-> First of all welcome new friends! Hope you'll have fun around here.

-> The newest part of the Dark Angel story is up now.
"The Long Way Home Part 6A"

-> I just came back from watching "Percy Jackson". Hmm, not bad, partly silly and with plotholes, but not bad. The music was cool and fit so very well with the scenes. I had a good time watching it.
Is there fic out there? I am too lazy to go and look myself right now.

-> I'm working on the last three prompts from a few weeks ago. It took me longer than I expected but then my muse has been a little bitchy lately.
I am also only four stories away from finishing that first snapshots table (about time I'd say). I hope my muse will help me out a little when it comes to starting Big Bang.
But then it's my third time and I should be used to it all by now.. only I am not. Also, thanks to everyone who voted, I think I actually like the outcome of this poll.

-> Since [livejournal.com profile] enablelove already asked me to do it, anybody else who wants to hear me making a fool out of myself? So yeah voicepost meme, ask questions if you must.

-> I am cold and hungry. Not a good combination. But I am also too lazy to get up and make something to eat (not to mention that it's way too late anyway).

-> Anybody else out there who was mostly bored by the Oscars this year? Only NPH rocked.
the_milky_way: (jared (hiding))
I am not really awake for anything coherent. I had a nice evening out with friends, which turned into a night out and saw me coming home around 2.30 am.
It's amazing how packed the city was at this hour, masses of people and the trains were full.
Anyway, had waffles and caipi's and got to talk to friends, I am glad I went out even though I had to get up at 10am today.

Conclusion: I am tired!

***
So my Big Bang poll seems to be decided 5:1.
If someone still wants to see the plot ideas and vote, you can do this here

***

-> Meme # 1
Leave a comment saying, "COMMENT" and I will give you five words I associate with you. Then post about what they mean to you, along with this, at your journal.
[livejournal.com profile] enablelove gave me these words )

-> I was thinking about doing the VoicePost meme but I think I am too chicken to do it.
I can't really stand recording myself but maybe... so if you want me to answer some question in a voicepost comment and I'll try my best. But no promises.

***
Last but not least some pimping: There are sparkles... :)
the_milky_way: (alec (comfort))
All my thoughts and good vibes go out to [livejournal.com profile] mama24!
I wish I could send along the hugs I got from four incredibly sweet Irish guys yesterday.

So yeah yesterday was a really weird day and today I feel blah about everything.
At least listening to Westlife and to know how sweet those guys are is making it okay.

Also spending the afternoon today with my friends did wonders, too.

Busy weekend it was (and yes my grammar sucks right now).
Met up with [livejournal.com profile] sandrine and [livejournal.com profile] slippery_fish on Sunday and had one of our typical girl's days. :)
Public transpoirt is rather fucked these days since they are rebuilding one of the major stations and this weekend it was my line that got interrupted.
So I decided to take a different way, which would have taken longer normally but not this time. Ended up staying the night at [livejournal.com profile] slippery_fish's place because it was way too cold to be brave enough and wait for three busses.
Anyway, we watched Friday 13th and now I am supposed to write Clay/Whitney.. *lol* I think the thing that made me dream strange thing sthough was the Criminal Minds episode we watched afterwards. Creepy.

I think I am all caught up with my flist from this weekend now but if I missed anything you think I should now feel free to yell at me. :)

So I didn't write a single word this weekend, not for the epic and not for the prompts. Uhm yeah... I think I'll try to at least do something today, besides sending off applications and having to go into the cold.
It's all sunny and blue sky but that's just so wrong when it's -12°C outside.
the_milky_way: (london (rush hour))
So who is coming to London with me in March?


***
[livejournal.com profile] mama24, you are awesome!
Thank you so much. I have cookies now and BOYS!
Both arrived this morning.
*huggles*


Speaking of the boys... I wish this was true:
'The Simpsons has a very special “Treehouse of Horrors” planned for this year. It will feature the voices of Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and the guys from Ghost Hunters. '

*lol* Would be a reason to really watch The Simpsons again.

***
I know it's late but I said I'd write about my NYE.
Nothing much to tell. I had fun. Met up with friends at a friend's place, then drove into the city where we set up camp on a bridge to watch what was going on in the city.
It was a good view and even though it snowed the whole night I wasn't cold. Met some cool people there, shared champaign and watched the fireworks. The really cool thing was being greeted by the train horns everytime one went by under the bridge.
The Moscow Express passed at exactly midnight and he didn't let go of the horn for a while.
Aftwards went back to friend's place, drank some more and then crashed at Josi's at around 6am or so.

Did take pics but I am too lazy to even download them to my computer right now.

***
There was more I wanted to write about but I forgot. Rachmaninoff is very distracting when you want to think things through.
Also, very goosebump inducing, too.

Oh right, I wanted top rec the story I got for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas because I really like it. It's Sam/Dean, NC-17.
"Soaked to the Bone (Sink like a Stone)".
It's really good and I love that she took this prompt from my list.


ETA: I didn't get any notifications the last days, so if you are waiting for a reply or if I owe you one sorry....

ETA2: Big Bang has been announced again. OMG, where did the time go. I do have an idea even but I am not sure I'll want to write that for Big Bang. I don't even know if I want to do J2 or S/D. Hmmmm

Also, I am totally in love with my new Dakine bag. Thank God for gift vouchers.
the_milky_way: (sam (hungover))
I had an awesome day.. NOT.
So pain is less, which is cool but it's still there and comes in waves now whcih can be really annoying.
In addition to the ear and throat my nose is stuffed which led to a heavy nose bleed all day. I can't clean my nose without spending minutes in the bathroom trying to stop the blood...
So yeah.. yuck.

I made my day better though. Went home early from work, where I didn't need to be in the first place but had to get some stuff and was scheduled anyway. It was fun with the bleeding. Urgh...
Last day at work will be Friday but my boss won't be there so I have to go next week some day to get some papers and give back the chip and key. I think I am going to miss it, work and the people there.
Anyway, on the way home I got myself chili cheese fries, a salsa chicken burger (damn KFC's salsa is HOT) and a strawberry milkshake. Bought cards and CDs and went home to find cheesecake. So that was actually pretty neat.
Also found the most precious little netbook I have ever seen. Me wants. I even could but I think I shouldn't. But it is pretty.

Also waiting for me when I came home was a postcard from [livejournal.com profile] _bettina_. Sheeeeeeep!
*hugs*
And my first birthday present. Yes, [livejournal.com profile] slippery_fish, it is here and I will not open it until Monday.
I promise.

[livejournal.com profile] acityofwonder, sent off a card. I hope this time it makes it and I think you might actually like the stamp more than the card.. ;)

Edit: I know I owe people fic. And I should be working on the prompt tables as well. Right now though I don't really feel like writing or even reading. All I want to do is sleep, which is rare due to pain and a stuffed nose.
Sorry guys. You are not forgotten. I know it takes me longer than usual this time... And I have started all the prompts already.
the_milky_way: (dean (reading))
Still sick but no real fever anymore. My voice is almost gone, this will be so much fun during the next days.
I have a cough now (which I usually get) and it sort of hurts.
So maybe cleaning my room after work today wasn't the wisest idea but it had to be done. I feel kind of dead right now.

Instead of working on my thesis I am writing fic which so isn't good but I couldn't concentrate on the paragraph I was writing anymore. I need to start with the [livejournal.com profile] spn_meanttobe fic if I ever want to have a chance of finishing it.
I am also working on a sequel to the last college!AU thingy. I have no idea why I am doing it, probably to keep my mind off of things. I am also procrastinating like mad which is bad.. really, really bad.
I hope I'll be able to get some things done during the next days. No idea how often I'll be online though.

Man, I can't believe Asylum is a week away already and I am a day away from seeing [livejournal.com profile] anjaliss. I also can't believe that there isn't that much time left to finish my thesis anymore.
And on Monday the posting for Big Bang will start. Where did all the time go? How do I get it back?

Won't be able to see the race tomorrow since I'll be at the airport. But after this qualifying I sort of don't get why Ferrari wants to keep Massa and diss Kimi. It was sort of of obvious who is the better driver in this year's car.
I just don't get it.

Last but not least my sibject lines will be quotes from Asylum for a while. just because I like them.
This one was Misha to me and then to some others in the customer service line around 11.00pm on Friday.

One thing I took away from Asylum I could have gone without.
I have a cold. I am feeling sick. I think it's a mixture of allergies and maybe the damn cold AC in the hotel room one night.
Bleurgh.

***
I think I won't write a real report about the convention because everything has been said and pics have been posted all over the place.
Instead I'll just take my fave quotes out from my notes and post those. I still think some of them are hilarious. And well I'll say something about my experience with the guest.

Maybe report but not really.. just notes and things I remember )

***
I am alone at home until Sunday when [livejournal.com profile] anjaliss will finally be here. After that I'll be alone until the 18th.
Right now there are some things going on and I am not sure I want to be alone with them.
I should be working on my thesis but right now I just feel sick.

Yes, I am alive.
No, there won't be Asylum updates from me today.
Just so much, seeing them (all of them) live and in person, seing them interacting and so on... yeah it left an impression. Mostly a good one and I am glad I have that.
I really have to go through my notes and I sure as hell won't repost any panel stuff since it has been done and I'll only use my own fav quotes.
I am still kind of dead, exhausted and really tired. But, despite the organizational chaos and whatnot I can say that I had fun (at least for during the things I wanted to do, and trying not to get too worked up over things).
Met really cool people and I am glad that I had the chance to (btw sorry [livejournal.com profile] peaches that I couldn't say bye, had to catch the cap *hugs*).

I am also rather happy with my photo ops with the guys, and I am still hoping that they'll really send my Jason pic via mail, otherwise there will be an email next week.
Report, or whatever it will be, depends on what I remember, and everything else later. I just have to settle back in.
It's still all so fresh and pretty overwhelming.
As for pics, well some of mine turned out okay and with my cam rows 2&3 were necessary. Lots of blurry crap though, no flashes doesn't really work.
But I am okay with it because I know where to get them anyway.

One thing though, I find it really amazing what people can come up with, like con report wise and so on, when they weren't even there.
You really interpret a lot into things, I realise that, but hearing it live is complete different.
I can't really believe what I have read in the last ten minutes I have been online and who actually complained about what.
People? Next time go there, be there, experience it and then you can complain...

ETA: I am trying to catch up with my flist but I am at skip 400 now and I am so not going to be able to comment or whatever... Sorry.
I think I'll give up for now.

I wasn't home all that much yesterday and today. Spent a really nice day with C and J yesterday (tasty pancakes and the usually craziness), which was kind of repeated today only that I visit J at work and handed in another application and met up with C to do some shopping. So I didn't have much time to check LJ repeatedly. I am trying to catch up now.
Shopping was in so far successful that I managed to get a new SD card for my camera for half the money they want on amazon.
I got root beer. I wanted Dr. Pepper and got root beer. Oh well...
I also got a new kind of shampoo which I want to try out since Herbal changed mine too much for it to work for me. So yes, success.

I am so not talking about the Qualifying. nothing against Jenson Button. It's cool that he has the pole. The only thing make it better for me though is Sebastian on three.
Oh Kimi. At least Kimi is way, way in front of the McLaren. *snorts*

***
Busy rest of the weekend ahead of me.
I want to be done with the major scenes for my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang story.
I kind of have the plan to work on my thesis during the week and to work on fanfic and such things during the weekend. So far it's working out. No idea how long I will be able to stick to it.

Wanted to work on the Sam/Dean piece as well but I am still kind of stuck there.

I think I had too many gummi bears.
