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 [ profile] zoe_chan, [ profile] milleniumrex and [ 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 [ 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)

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?
lady_sarai: (Bart can kill you with his *brain.*)
...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 [ 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: (Lost: Sawyer doesn't know either)
...I'm alive, I promise. My summer course is kind of leaving me burned out a little, so I've been kind of 'meh' about LJ lately, sorry. Also, I twisted my ankle mowing the lawn yesterday. Ow. But I've been seeing this around and wanted to try it, so here we go!

lady_sarai: (Lost: Sawyer doesn't know either)
I might be insane, but here, have a meme! Saw this... somewhere, I forget. But anyway!

OMG EVERYONE TODAY IS LOST DAY AND I AM NOT READY FOR MY SHOW TO EEEEEND. Also, Zoe and I posted our bigbang fic this week. It's AU, and we had looots of fun writing it. So you should read it. No, really. You all want to know what Kon would be like if Lex raised him. I know you do. ;)

And now to find some way to occupy myself until 7 tonight when the LOST FINALE EVENT begins!
lady_sarai: (Sing about my feelings)

Reply to this post, and I'll tell you one reason why I like you. Then put this in your own journal, and spread the love.

Class tonight is better not discussed.
lady_sarai: (Paper clippies!)
From [ profile] xenokattz:

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of of any pairing/character of their choosing (within reason, people. Within reason :P). In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. (If you absolutely can't write, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to offer drabbles, drawings or icons or something instead.) And I say you do not HAVE to play with the meme. But I highly encourage it. ;)

lady_sarai: (Sing about my feelings)
Snagged from several people, because I like seeing what people think about these things and, you know, have to throw in my two cents. ;)

And as others have said, Note: just because something is not my kink doesn't mean I have a problem with it. To each their own.

Cut because I ramble. )

And, why not? (No promises, though.) Meme snagged from [ profile] penknife:

If you could have me write a fic specifically for you, what would it be like? Fandom, characters/pairing, genre, plot elements, kinks (if applicable)... what's your ideal fic from me?
lady_sarai: (Are you sure this water's sanitary?)
So I'm making two kinds of soup today, because my mother and I cannot agree on one and because then we'll have leftovers and as we still don't have our appetites back, this is the best plan we can come up with. We also got about 14" of snow this weekend.

And if all my friends jumped off a bridge, I'd want to know how deep the water is. And if they're sure it's sanitary. It looks questionable to me! I AM LEMMING. ...Maybe I need a lemming icon.

Ask me one as many fandom-related questions as you want in the comments. This can be fandom specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general. Favorite character, favorite moment, unpopular opinion, something about a fic of mine... whatever. Wackiness encouraged.

Addendum from [ profile] likeadeuce: Defining fandom broadly as reading/writing/watching/listening, canon or fic, anything on those lines you want to ask me about!

So, yes. I will think while I chop! :D (I am making chicken soup with rice for myself. You may now continue your day reciting that poem. You are welcome.)
lady_sarai: (Sing about my feelings)

This is what happens when you leave me unsupervised. I jump on bandwagons.
lady_sarai: (Christmas ornaments)

Okay. So between NaNo and Yuletide and the fic exchange (of DOOM) and oh yeah, the end of the semester and all my crazy assignments (why is it all of my grad school assignments are due in the same 3 weeks? Undergrad at least spaced things out!), I am pretty busy these days. But I really like this meme!

SO I offer it to you as Christmas/Hanukkah/holiday ficlets! It may take me a while to write them, but I really will do it. (...Even if they wind up being New Years ficlets.)

1. Put your mp3 player on shuffle and take the first 25 songs it gives you.
2. Link to the lyrics.
3. Let your friends assign you a song and character(s) to write a drabble to.

Songs under the cut! )

Yes, I am pretty deeply entrenched in DC these days, but for those of you who are not fans, ask me for anything you'd like. (Yes, I'm looking at you, [ profile] aradiachiba, [ profile] alphabet26 and [ profile] marenzi. ♥) Feel free to specify if you want something within any specific fic continuity, as well. (Also, I am cross-posting this to my RP journals here and here, if there is something RP-based you'd like.)

Also, feel free to ask for more than one. Like I said--they might take some time, but I promise I will write them! ♥
lady_sarai: (Paper clippies!)


Oh, and:

20136 / 50000

And I don't know why I'm posting a meme, but I am!

Take any fic I have ever written, link me to it (or title/universe...), and ask "What if you had changed this moment?". I'll either explain, or maybe even write the What If.

Or you can make me pick the what-if. But that might take me longer. ;) Fics here, or in a comment somewhere.

That is all.
lady_sarai: (Are you sure this water's sanitary?)
Okay, I am rocking that NaNo thing (and made my 10k goal!):

10517 / 50000

Stolen from absolutely everyone on my flist:

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

Fics are here.

Today's [ profile] fannish_5: Name your five favorite fictional kids.

So, I love kids. This is helpful when you, you know, teach elementary school. But so I decided to use pictures for this too, because these kids are too damn cute and awesome for mere words.

1. Micah Sanders, Heroes

Che Guevara led a revolution. This is a rebellion. So whose side are you on? And 'mine' is not an answer. )

2. Lian Harper, DC Comics


3. Milagro Reyes, DC Comics

That's right baby girl. I'm the crazy one. )

4. Molly Walker,Heroes

'How did you sleep?' 'On my pillow.'  )

5. Lilo, Lilo and Stitch

This is your badness level. It's unusually high for someone your size. We have to fix that )

...Huh. Why do I not have a Micah icon? Clearly I need one.
lady_sarai: ([balloons]Hope is floating on the breeze)
THe Shift key on THE RIGHT SIDE OF my LAPTOp is broken and if I hoLD it down while I type this IS WHAT IT DOES> IT mAKes ME LOOK LIKE I AM insane or something. tHOUgH tHis Is NOt as bAD AS Previous demonSTRATIoNS, wait i lIed it is VEry BAD.

So there is your amusement for the evening. It's a good thing there are two shift keys, but I am irked.

And in other news, I hit up my comic store today and saw a sign advertising all DC back issues for FIFTY CENTS. So clearly I couldn't miss out on THAT, and the Y sign caught my eye, so I thought "eh, why not look?"


I probably don't need to tell you that it is mine now, and I call it My Precious, and I may have done a dancing jump in the store and hugged it. All for FIFTY CENTS. (And being too excited to remember all the other titles I was going to check for back issues of, oops.) But still. <3


Post the first line of a story here, and I'll write the next five.
lady_sarai: (Are you sure this water's sanitary?)
Rather than giving me a specific fic, give me a character or pairing and a time at any point in the future, and I'll write you a drabble on where I think they'll be at that point, be it a week from now or decades. If you want to give me a specific verse, you can, but if not I'll work from scratch.
lady_sarai: (Are you sure this water's sanitary?)
Fine, meme time again. Hello bandwagon.

Give me a link to one of my fics or verses, and I'll give you three details that didn't make it into the fic. Background canon, deleted scenes, or a look into the future. My choice, but if you have a specific question you can ask it in your request.
lady_sarai: (Paper clippies!)
Okay, why not? I'm bored-ish.

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

Fics archived here and any I've written at [ profile] comment_fic are fair game. Here's hoping notifications are working again.
