November links of note.

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

I had this crazy idea in November that since I was doing nanowrimo, I wouldn’t read as much fanfic. When combined with the Great Journal Swap of ’09, the outcome was that I didn’t post any reading links during November. Instead, I bookmarked everything I read with plans to post links later. Right. Honestly, that’s […]

“that’s what you get for waking up in vegas” (katy perry)

Namaste, #ShameOnYouABC Adam Lambert’s scheduled appearance on “Good Morning, America” was canceled after an AMA performance that was censored, NOT for graphic sexual suggestion (which was totally present) but for the kiss graphic-ness with a male band member (as opposed to equivalent performances with women). ETA: Although interestingly, Access Hollywood is making it about the […]

Namaste, *Andrea: Wow. Supernatural fanfic is really thoughtful. That’s amazing. Marci: I’m reading American Idol RPF. *Andrea: This is the second story I’ve read about Dean coming back from hell, and the waystations between there and earth, and what it takes to get a soul back and why he doesn’t remember but will someday. Marci: […]

AI RPF fic

Saturday, September 26th, 2009

Hang the Sense of It, by Jerakeen AI RPS, Adam/Kris, AU, “the Dinosaur Fic,” Adam and Kris are on their third date when dinosaurs show up, leading to coatcloset!cuddling and Adam’s mom saving the […]

Fics I’m Thinking About Reading But Am Worried I Won’t Like

Saturday, September 19th, 2009

City of a Thousand Wonders, by astolat The “sister story” to House of the Living, whatever that means. House of the Living was a little dark for me (and that was *before* it had the scary banner now up), but this is 15,000 words of AI Kris/Adam and I’d hate to skip it if I’d […]

Things I Want to Read…

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

…But don’t have time for because I’m *supposed* to be working on my August fic (and because I’m *actually* watching the So You Think You Can Dance finale). 1. Box of Magic (the Merlin Big Bang Challenge) has gone live! 23 stories and 72 works of art! (story previews are up too!) 2. astolat has […]

Fandom Ponderings

Monday, July 6th, 2009

My Wiseguy shout-out yesterday got me thinking — what other fandoms do I love whose source material I completely ignore? Which was a fun thing to think about while I was bored at work today, and gave me something to scribble industriously on little bits of paper, hopefully giving the impression that I was, I […]

This is from… okay, wow — last *Thursday*

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

There’s not much that makes me feel less productive than spending two hours watching So You Think You Can Dance and reading American Idol RPF. Doesn’t mean it’s not fun, though! In case you, too, want to feel unproductive and yet strangely hooked into current cultural phenomena, SYTYCD is on Thursdays (and Wednesdays too, I […]

Update: work, tv, the internet, life

1. Re: work. If I forget one more time I’m supposed to be at a staff meeting tomorrow morning, I’m going to wind up awake at 9:00 having slept through it. Which would be sad — word is there will be frittata, and it’s always easier to hide my pained reaction to our bold leaders’ […]
