Yuletide Letter

avengers 2
Dear Yuletide Author,

You've signed up to write for one of my beloved teeny fandoms so that already makes me adore you and utter little squeaky happy noises :-D Thank you!

I'm not hard to please, I don't think. A lot of my fandoms are femslashy this year, but if F/F isn't your thing, I'm a huge fan of female friendships and fics focusing on those. Honestly, apart from one exception that will be pretty obvious, don't feel obligated to throw in femslash just to please me unless it's something you also feel for those characters. And if you do, then go to town on it :-D

Eee, Yuletide! So happy with it :-)

avengers 2
Happy Holidays, everyone!

And I got the BEST Yuletide gifts :-) I can't believe I actually got fics in the tiny fandom that I'd been super hoping just to get one little thing in.

I got two!

skies above can't be stormy and Love-All are both based on this awesome little film, and my heart is filled with joy by them :-)

Hope everyone else is enjoy their day, and finding amazing fics in the Yuletide collection to read. Just don't forget to eat delicious food and watch Doctor Who, okay?

It's not that easy to let go of a demon. Not when that demon is Clint, and he didn't go back willingly.

December talking meme - favourite movie(s)

avengers 2
And as has become traditional, today's December talking meme entry is a couple of days late, but the important point is that I showed up, to misquote Sam Seaborn.

[personal profile] sineala asked me for my favourite movie. I've been trying to narrow it down, but I honestly can't. As I've mentioned before, picking a favourite book/movie/fic is impossible for me, because I love so many for so many different reasons.

So instead, I'm going to attempt to list my five(ish) favourite movies, in no particular order. That's as narrow as I can make it :-)

Towering Inferno: For me, it's the epitome of what a good disaster movie should be. There's the slowly building tension, where the audience can see that the disaster is going to happen, but it's not there yet. It gives us time to get to know and care about the characters, so that by the time the fire is finally discovered, we're invested in their fates. We care about who lives and who dies, we mourn with Paul Newman's architect for the building he'd designed that's been destroyed by Richard Chamberlain's cost-cutting contractor, and we're on the edges of our seats through each daring set piece. Steve McQueen's fire chief doesn't get that kind of build up, but we don't need to see his personal life to care about him and want him to get through alive. It's a movie where the story-telling is spot-on, the characters and relationships are vivid, and the effects are amazing even with 21st century effects goggles on. I've watched this movie so many times, it's ridiculous.

Star Wars: Do I really have to explain? :-D

Star Trek VI: I know, Star Trek IV has the whales and I love the humour. Star Trek II has Khan and an amazing story. But It's VI that I've watched more than any other Star Trek movie. I'm a huge politics-in-space geek, so the plot hooks me every time, and it's the way I always want to remember these characters: best friends forever, figuring shit out and doing stuff about it. There's nothing about this movie that I don't love.

Dirty Dancing: I have big soft spot for romances (witness how many times I've watched Maid in Manhattan), but Dirty Dancing remains my favourite. I think it's because there's so much more going on that just a simple sappy romance. There's class commentary, and abortion, and some frankly fantastic dancing, with a soundtrack that can't be beaten and, yes, a sweet romance that makes me heart tingle. I've watched it way too many times and I still get a sappy smile each time I watch the last dance number and Baby finally runs into that lift without any fear.

The Day After Tomorrow: It's another disaster movie, I know, but I think this may be my favourite of all the modern disaster movies. I love Deep Impact, Volcano, Twister, and so many others, but this is the one I've watched a ridiculous number of times. It's got all the elements I love in a disaster movie--slow tense build, character relationships, personal journeys--and it looks bloody fantastic doing it.

Lord of the Rings: Er, my cheating sixth film. Extended editions only, obviously.

Just in case anyone is wondering, the other films that nearly made the list include: all the other disaster movies I mentioned, Maid in Manhattan, The Man in the Iron Mask (the one with Jeremy Irons and Gabriel Byrne), Master and Commander, Persuasion (the one with Amanda Root and Ciaran Hinds), Skyfall, Nina's Heavenly Delights, and probably a dozen other movies that I'll remember five minutes after hitting post.

Bears...aren't quite here yet

Despite feeling utterly rotten (a cold, a migraine, and dry socket from my tooth extraction three months ago...what a horrible week), I have posted my Yuletide fic!

It still needs editing and I'm waiting on beta notes, but at least now I won't accidentally default and I can make the adjustments as needed over the next couple of days :-D


And now to sniffle and whimper on my sofa for a while.

Wednesday books

avengers 2
A day late again, but at least I'm doing it this week...

What are you currently reading?

My digital read is Revelation by C. J. Sansom, because it and the next book in the Matthew Shardlake series were both on a good price on Kindle. I'm a big fan of these books, lovely meaty Tudor mysteries featuring a hunchbacked lawyer, so they'll probably keep me occupied for the next couple of weeks.

My physical read is The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith/J K Rowling and I've eaten the first five chapters in two days despite my terrible cold.. I appear to be in a mystery phase. I nearly picked up Wolf Hall, but then I realised that two Tudor mysteries at the same time would just be confusing.

What did you recently finish?

Symbiont by Mira Grant, which was exactly as amazing as I'd hoped it would be. As I always say, zombie lit isn't my thing but Grant writes fascinating near future sci fi with zombies, and that's a totally different thing. Still horrific and terrifying, but also thought provoking.

And Slightly Wicked by Mary Balogh was my last digital read, but I've already babbled about in my post on historical romance so I won't rebabble. It was fantastic, though :-)

What do you think you'll read next?

I still have Waistcoats and Weaponry by Gail Carriger on my to be read shelf, so that will probably be next. Or a reread of The Dark is Rising because it's so delightfully Christmassy. And by the time I've finished the Shardlake books, the new Tessa Dare book should be on my Kindle, so I'll be hitting that hard.

Historical romances and me

avengers 2
So, way back on December 10th, I was supposed to talk about historical romance for [personal profile] netgirl_y2k, but in the rush to finish Yuletide and so forth, it got...postponed. NOT FORGOTTEN. It's just that this is a trickier one for me to write, and my brain crumbled away and died whenever I tried.

I am currently feeling utterly awful due a bad cold, but ideas have had time to percolate so hopefully this will be coherent.

For the December talking meme, [personal profile] netgirl_y2k asked me to talk about what I like about historical romances and give some recs.

Cut for lengthCollapse )

Her name was Lola...

coulson 1
For the December talking meme, [personal profile] emmzzi asked me to talk about Lola today. (Happy birthday!)

Which prompted a brief discussion about which Lola she meant. Showgirl? Coulson's car? Another Lola I'm unaware of?

Well, Coulson's car is a big of a showgirl, so that does work out rather nicely ;-)

Fandom stocking 2014!

avengers 2
My [community profile] fandom_stocking is up here :-)

Today my team are going out for a meal, which will probably take all afternoon if we can finagle it. Heh.

It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas around here.

Con pimping: Wincon

avengers 2
So, a good friend of mine is on the committee for this con and has spent the last two years extolling its virtues, which says a lot about a con if someone I like and respect is involved and loves it :-) If I can make my vacation time work out next year, I'm hoping to go to the 2015 edition.

I love fan run cons. They're fun, relaxed, and filled with really cool panels and awesome people. They're running some things right now with the aim of making the con an even better experience and opening it up for more people to participate in from next year. And thus, I'd like to let the Wincon folks tell you a bit more about the con, what they're doing, and how you can help (and get cool stuff for doing it, even if you can't actually go).

Wincon is a 'by the fans, for the fans' multi-fandom con. That means no guests, no celebrities, just the internet in real time with other fans. Wincon 2015 in Pittsburgh will be their 10th anniversary, but they need some help to make it happen.

In the past, they've been about a 100-person con. That's no longer sustainable, so they've decided to grow to 250-300 people. At this size, they can offer more programming, better events, etc. while cutting registration costs nearly in half. Registration for 2015 is just $55 for the weekend.

To make sure Wincon can be successful at this new size, they're running an Indiegogo campaign. You can buy your registration or choose from their other awesome perks. They have custom art from some truly awesome artists made just for the campaign, as well as donations of art commissions and custom fan crafts.

Please take a minute to visit the Indiegogo page and get to know what they're all about. You can also find more information at their tumblr or website.

Today for the December talking meme, [personal profile] captainhillshipper asked me for my favourite fic and why I love it. Which is basically impossible to narrow down to just one fic, in the same way I can't pick just one book or movie (anyone who wants the rundown on those - I'm still taking topic suggestions!), so it has to come down to a list.

Most of these fics are ones I've read in the last five years or so, because my memory for fics I read further back than that is...hazy. Any older fics on this list stood out like woah. Sadly, that means fandoms I was active in for a long time (SG1, Buffy) are not represented well. Er, at all. Everything blurred into a mush.

Also, bookmarking and Kindling today makes remembering newer favourites so much easier than it used to be. There are fics that I remember loving at the time, enough to reread multiple times, but all I can remember is fandom, pairing, and maybe a vague premise. Maybe. The archives they were on are long gone, which makes them pretty much impossible to trace. Hence the bias towards newer fics.

The fics below are the ones that I've read a dozen or more times, the ones I open when I need a pick-me-up or a cosy afternoon with a cup of tea. I love them to little bitty pieces and keep going back to them. Bashing my favourite fics ain't gonna win you points here, is what I'm saying :-)

Launch Your Assault: I've lost count of how many times I've read this. It's a Clint/Coulson college AU by one of my favourite fic writers, and there's something about the mix of angst, porn, self-discovery, and porn, that really registers with me every time I read it. (No, it's just just the porn.)

Ordinary Workplace Hazards, Or SHIELD and OSHA Aren't On Speaking Terms: I might have read this one as many times as LYA, it's hard to tell. It's a Clint/Coulson fic that has one of the hottest non-sex scenes I've read, and it's the fic that launched this ship for me. I love it enough to have it on my Kindle and in two different podfic readings on my iPod.

Motion Practice: An Avengers lawyer AU sounds like it should be the most boring thing ever, but it really isn't. Loads of well-written, novel-length fics. My favourite pairings. Emotionally difficult but hugely satisfying stories. I've read the original fic multiple times and most of the others at least twice. They're gorgeous.

Men of Our Word: I read this so many times when I was Sparrington shipping hard. And then last year I got a craving, spent an evening tracking it down to reread, and I still love it to a ridiculous degree.

#435, The Atlantis Local Stitch'n'Bitch: I'm linking to the text of this, because I have no idea where I got the podfic version of it from. That's the version I've listened to fifty billion times, though. It's maybe my favourite McShep fic and I can't even articulate why.

Drastically Redefining Protocol: By the same author as the last fic, this is the Merlin Royalty AU of my heart. It's my favourite Merlin fic. It's ridiculous and awesome and I'm never, ever getting over it.

So there we go, this is my list, and in about five minutes I'm going to realise there were a dozen other fics that I wanted to list here as well, but never mind. This list is the fics that came immediately to mind when I was asked this question, which speaks to how much I love them.

Anyone else want to share some favourites?

avengers 2
I'm a day late (d'oh!) but I get there in the end :-) For the December talking meme (which still has lots of empty slots later in the month here, [personal profile] paranoidangel asked me to talk about knitting.

Which has been sadly neglected over the last few months, but maybe talking about it will finally spur me to finish my damn socks.

I started knitting over ten years ago, to give myself something to do with my hands of an evening. My mum taught me and started me on easy squares using knit and purl to pattern them, which eventually turned into my enourmous knitted blanket. And then I made a second patchwork blanket. And one for my sister.

(I've got such an itch to make another blanket, actually. Something nice and mindless could be good for me.)

After that, I graduated into learning to make a baby cardigan when a friend was pregnant. From there, I learned to knit in the round so I could make myself a pair of fingerless mittens because my office was cold. Knitting in the round led to sock knitting, which is surprisingly satisfying. Pretty warm socks for horrible Canadian winters! My preference for making things with actual practical use led to cardigans and hats, as well.

I've made the odd lacey shawl, but I've got no patience for the fiddly stuff. Knitting, for me, started out as a way to occupy my hands while watching TV and do something productive at the same time. It's still primarily about that for me, although I do like my productivity to be pretty. My skin is very sensitive to wool, which is why any clothing-type knitting is always done in merino. Not cheap, but at least what I make is wearable.

(Blankets don't need to be wearable, but I like them to be easy to manage and hard-wearing, so they're usually a wool-acrylic blend. Much cheaper.)

I enjoy knitting because it produces something at the end that I can use. I prefer knitting with fine yarns--fingering or DK weight--because the fabric is more comfortable for me to wear. Blankets, again, are the unwearable exception where I use a heavier yarn. My mother loves making things with hugely complicated cable patterns and so forth. She says that she gets bored otherwise.

I like making things that are fairly simple, because watching TV is still the only time I knit, and I want to pay attention to the show. If I'm trying to read a long pattern, my concentration for both knitting and TV is shot to hell. So, I stick to simple things.

Both of the blankets I've made for myself see heavy use all through the year, even all these years later. And I catch my sister snuggling under hers when we're Skyping. So far, my blankets have been my most used finished items.

I should dig out those socks tonight. And maybe look at what I've got around for another blanket.

If I can just get the cats to stop chewing my circular needs and pretty yarn for long enough...

Belated Wednesday reading

avengers 2
One day, I'm actually going to do this on Wednesday...

What are you currently reading?

I am so excited because I finished books and now I can start new ones! Yay! So I'm now racing my way through Symbiont, which is the newest book by Mira Grant. My love for this author is ridiculous.

Yes, even though she's writing about zombies and I usually hate zombie lit. It's smart zombie lit, okay? That's not really *about* the zombies, they only provide the framework for something much cooler.

My lighter, digital read is Romancing the Duke by Tessa Dare and it's utterly delightful so far.

What did you recently finish?

Longbourn by Jo Baker. I liked it enough to have a proper rec scheduled on my alternate Tumblr, [tumblr.com profile] selenayrecsbooks, for later this week. It wasn't what I expected when I opened it up and it took me longer to get into than I thought it would, but once I hit a certain point, I couldn't stop. I got ridiculously attached to Sarah and her story, which surprised the heck out of me.

And Then He Kissed Her, which was much better than the three weeks it took me to read makes it sound. I blame NaNo. It's a historical romance, a genre I appear to be getting addicted to, and the heroine is not any form of gentleman's daughter or nobility. She has a job. She's a secretary. In historical romance, this is very rare. Okay, the love interest is a marquess, but it's still a nice little twist on the trope and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

What do you think you'll read next?

em>Waistcoats and Weaponry</em> by Gail Carriger is next on my on-the-shelf reads. After that, who knows? Probably my history of rabies book. And I've got my eye on a half a dozen romance novels for my Kindle.

Grr, ranty rantiness ahead

ace 2 (with gun)
The company IT division is doing a competition to gather stuff for the food bank, so my department has been turned into a team in this thing and we're being encouraged to bring as much in as we can. Fair enough, I have no problem with this. I've got friends who have relied on food banks at times in their lives and I firmly believe in giving back when I'm able.

We didn't get told about this until Monday.

Yesterday, a co-worker sent out a chirpy little email about how sad the amount we'd collected so far was, and exhorting us to bring in 'a few cans and jars from the cupboard' today to make our stack look better.

Which is fine for people who actually have a stash of cans and jars in their cupboard, but I don't. So I didn't bring anything in, because I'm doing my regular grocery shopping later in the week and I'll buy some stuff then. We've got until the end of next week to collect stuff. This will be fine, right?

Cut for length and rantingCollapse )

Fandom stocking 2014!

avengers 2
Sign-ups are open (for another few days) for [community profile] fandom_stocking, which I've never done before but I'm doing it this year :-) It's low stress and not just restricted to fic, so it sounds like it'll be right up my alley.

Maybe it's your thing, too?

Ace and the Seventh Doctor

ace and the doctor (fenric)
First day of the December talking meme, and this was suggested by [personal profile] selenak. That's a pretty broad topic, so I'm taking my chance to express my love for these characters.

I always say that while the Fifth Doctor is my Doctor, in the sense that he's the first one I grew up with, the Seventh is my best Doctor because he's the one who makes me think difficult things. He's the Doctor, so I always knew that he'd do something right in the end, but I never knew what that right thing would be. He always had a bigger picture in mind, something that had to be done but didn't leave much room to be comfortable and predictable. I've never been able to express why I love him so, why I trusted him, when I knew that the fate of one tiny bit of humanity--my tiny bit--wasn't his priority. But I did and I always will.

Ace is, hands down, my favourite Old Who companion. Donna Noble had to work pretty damn hard to become joint all time favourite companion, let me tell you.

Ace was what I wanted to be. She takes charge, she blows shit up, she beats up Daleks with a baseball bat, but she wasn't a hard terrible character. She was flawed and vulnerable, which made her feel real to me.

Ghostlight breaks my heart every time because of Ace.

The Curse of Fenric is, I think, the episode that showcases both the best and the worst of what those two characters were together. It's brilliant and horrible, and one of the best Seventh Doctor stories they did. It's not my favourite--that would be Battlefield--but it's what I always think of when I try to imagine what season 27 would have been like if the show hadn't been cancelled. In my head, it would have been a mixture of Battlefield's glorious rompiness and Fenric's horrible, terrible grand schemes, with Ace finally reaching her destiny as a Time Lady at the end.

(Shut up, it would totally have been that. I believe.)

Ace and the Seventh Doctor, together, are amazing. There's a moment in Silver Nemesis where the Doctor asks Ace if she disobeyed his instructions and brought some Nitro-9. She confesses that she did, and he beams and tells her to blow up the Cybership. For me, that's what was always at the heart of their relationship. It wasn't just that the Doctor would (after terrifying me that he might not) do his best for Ace, try to teach her about all her amazing potential and save her from the bad things. It was that he trusted her to have his back, too. To pull him out of the fire when he needed it, and to have the explosives on hand when he needed them. Their story is one of the few times in Old Who where we got to see a long-term, growing relationship between the Doctor and his companion, and it was wonderful. It wasn't perfect, it wasn't always pretty, but it was wonderful to watch.

(In my head canon, Ace and the Doctor traveled together until she'd learned enough to travel through time and save the world on her own. And then she set out on her time-travelling motorbike and picked up the threads he couldn't juggle, and they sometimes met and worked together when a problem was too big for just one of them. Or just because they wanted to and missed each other. And, because it's my head canon, Donna didn't lose herself in Journey's End: she's out there with Ace, saving the world and travelling through time, and sometimes they work with this little chap who plays the spoons when he should be running away.)

If I could only have one Doctor-and-companion for the rest of time, it would be Seven and Ace.

Belated Wednesday reading (again)

avengers 2
A day late again, but at least I'm doing it this week...

What are you currently reading?

Still working on And Then He Kissed Her and Longbourne because I seem to have no time lately for reading, but I'm enjoying them both and should finish them very soon.

What did you recently finish?

Nothing new since last week. Woe :-( There need to be more hours in my day.

What do you think you'll read next?

Symbiont by Mira Grant and Waistcoats and Weaponry by Gail Carriger arrived yesterday, so it will be one of those. And quite possibly my next e-read will be another historical romance. I've got a Tessa Dare sitting there, who I have never read but comes highly recommended by Courtney Milan. I work on the theory that if I love Milan's historicals, I'll probably love the ones she recommends, too :-)
