lady_sarai: (Writing)

I got to thinking that I should have one central place to locate all my fic. So here is that place, organized by fandom.

DCU )

X-Men Movieverse )

Narnia )

Harry Potter )

Misc fandoms )


Comment fic in various fandoms and places )


DCU, co-written with Zoe )


RENT, co-written with Zoe )


DCU, co-written with Katt )


DVD-style Fic Commentaries I've done )

Dear Yuletide Author,

Thank you so much for writing for me! I love Yuletide, and all three of my requests are things I will absolutely LOVE to receive. I can't wait to see what you do for me!

So I said this last year and it still applies: I am very easy to please. I have a post with some of the things I love/don't-so-much-love in stories over here, if you'd like some general details about what I like, but aside from the things in the list that makes me cry, anything will make me happy! Write something that makes you happy and I'm sure I'll love it!

Now for specifics... )

In conclusion: YAY YULETIDE! It will be incredibly hard to disappoint me, as anything in those fandoms will make my day. Thank you so very much for being my author!!

♥,
Sara
lady_sarai: (Paper clippies!)

I made these lists before writing my NaNo as a guide for my own writing, and then decided I'd like to have it up as a reference to point to, so here it is!


Cut for length )


My list of likes is a whole lot longer than my list of dislikes. ;) Please don't take these lists as a judgment on your tastes, if something on it is what you enjoy. It's just a matter of personal taste, but I make no judgments on people who do like them!
lady_sarai: (We'll dynamite. Save time.)
..Hahaha, it's been three months or so since I posted here. Whooooops. A proper post may be forthcoming, but for now--I jump on the fic bandwagon. Because I am feeling creative and positive tonight.


Pick a meme (or do both), and request things!

Nabbed from [livejournal.com profile] zoe_chan, [livejournal.com profile] milleniumrex and [livejournal.com profile] angel_gidget:

Pick a fanfic I've written before and I will write you comment fic following it/taking place in that universe.

For convenience. And like Zoe's, RP verses count for this too. :D

Alternatively, this one from [livejournal.com profile] xenokattz, but--modified:

Give me
a) a fandom
b) a character/pairing

Then add either (or both) of the following
1) an image
2) a quote (but not in the same fandom)

What have I been up to lately? I'm glad you asked! I made a fanmix! ...It's way too long, but I had, um. 94 songs in the playlist before I cut it down to this, so keep that in mind?

Tomorrow afternoon I am going to my college and helping with an origami project. They're planning to try to make at least 1,000 paper cranes to sell for donations to the Japanese Red Cross, and while I can't afford to donate much and I can't go over there to help, I can fold paper cranes for two hours! It's not much, but it's something, and that's what counts.

We read Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes as a class in fifth grade and tried making them. I don't remember if we made 1,000 but I've always remembered that.
lady_sarai: (Yatta!Snowman)
I totally meant to post this MUCH sooner, but I got hit by a horrendous cold/fever THING and it's been a crazy busy month.

BUT. BUT BUT. YULETIDE!! ♥ I had to default thanks to busyness, but I plan to try to write a NYR fic to make up for it. IN ANY CASE the fic I received is SO PERFECT it's not even funny!

Ply, Skein and Twist is a Spindle's End fic about Peony. It's 8600 words of what happens after the end of my very favorite Robin McKinley novel, and it is nothing but GLORIOUS and PERFECT. I'm rereading Spindle's End now because of it, and loving it even more. This is now my canon, and nothing can change my mind about it. It's so wonderful, I really don't know how to describe it. I could not have asked for a more perfect story, seriously. I adore every word of it.

And [livejournal.com profile] xenokattz drew me the most adorable webcomic in the history of ever! Lookit! It's wee!Cissie and Ollie! )

HOW CUTE IS THAT. I ADORE CISSIE'S LITTLE CHRISTMAS DRESS SO MUCH. SPARKLY HEARTS EVERYWHERE!

...And I think that's all for now, so I am going to take a nap, before I pass out.


Well, almost. I forgot I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking, so my stocking is here, if anyone's interested. :P I feel silly linking it, but I see this is kind of how it's done, and I am sick and pathetic. Oh, and I forgot to link my Yuletide letter where people could see it, so it is here. I adore my story SO DAMN MUCH, please go read it!!!
lady_sarai: (Addictive as crack pie)

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, EVERYONE! ♥

Here, have a meme everyone else is doing. ;) I might not get back to these until late, as my brother and his fiancee are arriving for food soon, but ask away!

Name a character/real person from one of my fandoms/shows/anything and I'll give you:

(a) three facts about them from my personal canon/fanon
(b) a reason he/she sucks
(c) a reason he/she is amazing
(d) five things that I'd like to see happen to them
(e) five people that I can't ship that character with and why
lady_sarai: (West of the Moon)

Dear Yuletide Author,

Thank you so much for signing up and offering one of the things I've asked for! I am so excited. Yuletide is one of my very favorite parts of this time of year, and I hope you're happy with the request we were matched on!

I am very easy to please. I have a post with some of the things I love/don't-so-much-love in stories over here, if you'd like some general details about what I like, but aside from the things in the list that makes me cry, anything will make me happy! Write something that makes you happy and I'm sure I'll love it!

Now, as for specifics...

A Curse Dark as Gold, Red Robin, Spindle's End, Green Arrow )

When I finished my sign-up, I realized I requested four fics about awesome women being awesome in one way or another. So really, I am just looking forward to seeing what you write for me, and because it's about one of these women in one of these fandoms, I will be thrilled!

Thank you so much!
-Sara
lady_sarai: (Kermit flail--YAYOMG)
MY LITTLE BROTHER IS ENGAGED!!! \o/

He proposed today!! And she said yes! I AM EXCITED, I WILL HAVE A SISTER. And she is wonderful, and we love her, and they're very good for each other and they are very happy. <3

He took her out to breakfast this morning and apparently has been a nervous wreck and antsy all week. Today he could not sit still and I guess she said something about it several times. He took her to Fort Williams Park, which is where Portland Head Light is, but they walked around a while. He was going to do it there, but there were too many people and he didn't feel it, so he took her to another park down the road (Two Lights State Park), and they went up on a hill overlooking the water and he got down on one knee and gave a whole speech and I guess he was shaking the whole time, and she started crying and everything. Then she called my mother at work to ask if she had a minute and said "I'm going to be your daughter-in-law!" and when she called me, she said "we're going to be sisters!" and I am so very, very excited for them! And us!

Apparently the number one question being asked is "have you picked a date?" which they haven't, since they just got engaged this afternoon. They're thinking next fall or the following spring, though. The second question is "when are you having kids?" which makes my brother turn purple. His answer is "eventually." We think this is a good answer. (But he has said he definitely wants a little girl, which is ridiculously sweet, if you ask me.)

SO, YES. BIG, HAPPY NEWS HERE. :D

It's NaNo time! Yay! ...I am way tired and have Halloween treats to do still, but I will perhaps do them tomorrow. For now, I will sleep. Day 1!

1070 / 50000
(2.14%)


I like NaNo. I enjoy this. VOTING DAY TOMORROW!! I SHALL VOTE AND THEN THERE WILL BE NO MORE COMMERCIALS FOR CANDIDATES FOR GOVERNOR. (Oh god, please don't let this one person win...)
lady_sarai: (I am Supergirl)
Oh, stolen from aaaall over, because I am weak.



Rules:
((This version from [livejournal.com profile] kirax2))
1. Comment in this thread and say, "Fic or Treat!"

2. Tell me who you're dressed as. (You don't have to actually be dressed as that person). You can be any one character from a fandom I know. If I'm not familiar with your character I might--or might not--ask you for a different one. You can be dressed as the same character as someone else, but try to give it a bit of variety if you can (i.e. specify a different version of your character).

3. On October 31st, you'll get a treat! It might be an icon, a song recommendation, maybe even an actual fic or anything else I can think of! Hopefully with a Halloween spin.



(...That said, I will probably be okay if there are multiples of the same character.)

Meme time!

lady_sarai: (I am Supergirl)

I am moody and cranky and irrationally irritated and generally unhappy this week. It's October. And I suspect my moods will only get worse in the next week or so. But I have a new default icon and I think it's cute, so I'm showing it off.

In the spirit of trying to cheer up, I'm stealing that meme everyone else has already done:

Out of utter curiosity, if I was chained up in your attic/study/basement/library/secret lair, and I had to write you one story, what would you demand? Or alternatively, what's something you always hoped I'd write but know is never going to happen?

Oh, October

Oct. 4th, 2010 11:33 pm
lady_sarai: (I wanted the opposite of this)
It is October.

TODAY:
-I overslept
-I dropped a pan on my foot
-I dropped the egg carton, breaking the last egg
-I bought sushi at the store for lunch and didn't realize until I got home that they used rice paper instead of seaweed and said sushi subsequently sucked and I couldn't make myself eat it :(
-My printer ran out of ink while I was printing off this week's chapter for tonight's class
-I was cut off by a tractor-trailer truck on the way to said class
-I was nearly rear-ended in the parking lot
-Which had me so rattled that I LOCKED MY DAMN KEYS IN THE EFFING CAR
-And realized it the moment I shut my locked door. So I was late to class because I had to try to break into my car and realize that no, I could not break in
-You know that chapter that didn't print? WE HAD AN OPEN-BOOK QUIZ ON SAID CHAPTER
-Otherwise I have no idea what happened in class, I was too busy panicking over being 45-50 minutes from home with no way to get home
-I used class break time to call Mom and have her bring the spare key to me, feeling like a jerk for making her drive all the way to Lewiston just to unlock my car
-The key she brought? Was for my Buick. The car I haven't had for three years now
-Called a tow company, but could not figure out what the address of the campus was; luckily the receptionist was really nice and looked it up online
-At 7pm, the tow truck showed up and let me in the car, and accepted a credit card and gave me a $5 student discount, so that was good
-My key AND the spare key were in my purse, as it turns out
-Was tailgated very bizarrely all the way to the toll-booth--I would speed up, they would speed up; I would slow down, they would slow down. It was WEIRD.
-Finally made it home by 8 and ate dinner at 9 pm
-Found out they are coming to replace our roof tomorrow morning. At SIX AM.

And we are not going to the Fryeburg Fair this year and it makes me very, very, very, very, very sad. :( No fair for Sara. The Fair is like my favorite thing ever. No meeting my football-playing-lobstering-farming-lumberjack future husband this year, I guess.

It is only October 4th. The whole month CAN'T be like this. I know this month hates me, but COME ON.
lady_sarai: (I wanted the opposite of this)
I am so FUCKING PISSED RIGHT NOW, I do not have the words. I just spent an hour fighting with Yahoo and Delicious. I have been using delicious to bookmark my links EXCLUSIVELY since at least January--because I saved all those Yuletide fics I meant to read in a folder there--and I signed up using a yahoo!ID.

I CANNOT REMEMBER MY GODDAMN YAHOO ID. ARRRRRRRRGH. I have gone through every version of every screenname I can think of and NONE OF THEM WORK. ARGH WHY DOES DELICIOUS MAKE IT SO IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE MORE THAN ONE WAY TO SIGN IN? AND WHY DID FIREFOX SUDDENLY DECIDE TO MAKE ME SIGN IN?? IT HASN'T IN MONTHS.

I cannot even handle this right now, I am so fucking pissed. I have lost all my goddamn links. And of COURSE I saved most of them as private so out of HUNDREDS only SIX show up when I go to my profile. ARGH. DEATH, DOOM AND RUINATION.

Cissie returned to her room after practice exhausted, tired and hating the whole world. )

...Oh, I should not do this. BUT I AM.

Comment with a 5 + 1 list (five times X did Y and the one time s/he didn't, for example) and I'll write a little drabble about it! Include the names of the characters and if you want it to be a ship or just general/friendship.
lady_sarai: (Are you sure this water's sanitary?)
Oh, why not? It's been a while. Shamelessly stolen from [livejournal.com profile] second_batgirl.

Ask me my Top Five Whatevers. Fannish or otherwise. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! And I will answer them all in a new post comment. Possibly with pictures.


So, yes. I have been a moody, grouchy Sara lately, which seems unfair for my birthday week, but it's turning out to be a weird birthday this year anyway. I'm not getting into it again right now, because argh. But as a present, I am redecorating my bedroom, which involved emptying it and painting it.

Hahaha, seriously? I had pictures from a 1995 calendar up there, as well as a Babysitter's Club book order poster and a quiz on state capitals from seventh grade in September, 1996. Apparently when I was younger, I thought it was okay to just... hang a poster up OVER whatever was already on the wall. Yeah, there's a reason I have put off redecorating for years. However, my room is now a sunny yellow and very pretty. I am trying to reassemble it so I can sleep there tonight.

OH, and I have a new I Harth Darth mood theme. <3

Annnnd that's all I have right now. HIT ME.

The Television Meme of Doom

Day 01. A show that should have never been canceled
Day 02. A show that you wish more people were watching
Day 03. Your favorite new show (aired this TV season)

Uh. This season I mostly watched the last season of shows--Lost, Heroes. I watched SPN and Smallville for the first times, so they were new to me this year and I love them both. But for this, I guess I'll say V. Again, I love Elizabeth Mitchell.

And look, meme 2!

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to the page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences to LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).


Well, I am reading Turn Coat by Jim Butcher--the 11th Dresden Files book. I love them.
Here goes... )

That's the first page of chapter 18. I'm not there yet and I'm not writing more because I don't want to know who "she" is until I get there. :D
lady_sarai: (Are you sure this water's sanitary?)
The Television Meme of Doom
Day 01. A show that should have never been canceled
Day 02. A show that you wish more people were watching

...I don't have an answer for this one! :P Most of the shows I'm watching religiously are ones lots of people watch. Lost was one. I can't quit Grey's Anatomy, I watch Supernatural now, I'm working my way through Smallville (now midway through season 7!)... V, maybe. I love Elizabeth Mitchell and Morena Baccarin and they are terrifying together. But it got INTENSELY CREEPY in the end of this season and we'll see how much I can handle come season 2. It might be too alien-scary for me.

Wait. Deadliest Catch. Or Survivor, but thanks to Mr. Crowley, Zoe watches that with me now. :D

I spent half an hour in a parking lot this afternoon waiting for my mother. I had to listen to a car alarm going off the entire time. When my mother showed up, the owner of the car also showed up. Death and mayhem, everyone. Death and mayhem.

Also, I have finished Small Favor and now only have two Dresden Files books left to go. :( What will I do then? Except I know because I promised Zoe I'd read The Dark Tower next.

IN OTHER NEWS, WE SIGNED UP FOR SCHMOOP BINGO AND I LOVE LIFE. (We also had signed up for HC Bingo. IT IS LIKE SOMEONE SAID "DO YOU WANT AN EXCUSE TO WRITE ALL THOSE RIDICULOUS AUS YOU LIKE THINKING UP? OKAY, HERE IT IS. ...So far all of our H/C stuff is gen-fic. This might be totally throwing the rules out the window. We don't care.)
