Uffish Thought
So I’ve been mildly obsessed since my second viewing of Mad Max with Toast’s hair. She’s the only one of the Wives with short hair, and it’s ragged as fuck, like she did it herself without a mirror, and possible with a butter knife or something.

And then I also got to wondering about why there were only three things written in the vault when Immortan Joe came in, and who wrote what.

And then I wrote a thing.

those were her words
Mad Max: Fury Road
gen, warnings for a brief description of past rape/noncon
The night before they leave, Angharad pulls out a tub of white paint, the kind the War Boys use on their skin.

"We don’t have to be silent anymore,” she says, pushing the tin into the middle of their circle.

*cackles madly* I'd forgotten how much it fun it was to be actively writing in a fandom with ridiculous spy organizations, where Lindsey and I can legitimately brainstorm shit like 'attack cheetahs' and 'flirting with your rescuer whilst high on interrogation drugs' and 'our heroes steal part of a moving train' and 'the secret bad-guy base is at Disneyworld'.

Plus, we realized that all of Lindsey's most recent stories featured either detectives or spies or both. With The Man From UNCLE and the next Mission: Impossible movies coming out this summer, I anticipate this trend continuing. :)

I've been terribly distractible lately, and keep dumping myself into new fandoms despite it being a really unwise idea. I did fail to do my usual SXSW marathon -- I only saw 3 films this year, being sadly curtailed by me starting a new job (yay) + not being able to take any more time off after my surgery (boo).

So far this month, I have spent way too much mental energy bouncing between:
Check, Please! (this is the closest I am ever getting to hockey fandom, though)
The 100 - EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE and I love it
World War Z (wow the book is nothing like the movie, the zombies don't even work the same. glad I read the book second, so I didn't have any expectations for the film, which a totally solid and completely unrelated Hollywood zombie thrillfest)
Foxglove Summer/rereading the series via Kobna Holbrook-Smith's magical audiobook readings (re-listening?)
return of The Walking Dead -- CAROL OMG

Also, I can't believe I didn't realize that 616 Bucky Barnes has the same birthday as me and inmyriadbits. Like, 91 years apart, but who's counting?

Coming not-very-soon-but-eventually by popular request: a photo documentation of my healing incision. And by 'popular request', I mean katieupsidedown. :D

Hey everyone! I'm alive, the surgery went well, I'm healing, etc. I'm still sleeping more hours than I'm awake and feeling pretty fuzzy -- it's a little disconcerting how tired I get at the drop of a hat -- so I don't know how much I'll be around for the next while. The stitches are coming out on Tuesday, so maybe after that.

Thanks to everyone who sent me well-wishes -- I really appreciated them all. ♥

Hey everyone! Just wanted to give you a heads-up that I'm going to have surgery tomorrow, so I'll be out of touch for a few days. If anyone wants to gory details, feel free to ask. The surgery should be fairly minor, but I'll be off work for a bit so I'd be happy for recs or links to anything interesting I miss while I'm out.

See ya'll in a few days!

So I completely failed to reveal what I wrote for Yuletide this year --

stumble to prevent a fall
Life
written for [archiveofourown.org profile] mskikiiv
gen, post-canon
2200 words

The first thing Dani says after Bodner pulls the car over is, “Crews, you're an idiot. What the hell were you thinking?”


--before posting a little something yesterday that I co-wrote with Lindsey:

see a church by daylight
Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries
co-written with inmyriadbits
explicit, established relationship
2300 words

Perhaps Dot’s decision to ignore Phryne’s advice to elope had a bright side after all.


...possibly my next fic should NOT be titled in five lowercase words starting with the letter 'S'. Huh. And before that it was two six-word titles starting with 'T'! o_O

Hey ya'll, anyone interested in betaing a 2500 word Miss Fisher PWP for me and inmyriadbits?

[personal profile] inmyriadbits and I wrote a little Miss Fisher trifle on Tumblr -- now on AO3 as slow as a wet week. Phryne/Jack flirting, naturally, and guest-starring Mr. Butler in all his butler glory.

*****

In other recent accomplishments, I have wrestled my inbox down to a single page for the first time in like three months. This is doomed not to last, but the satisfaction right now is excellent.

Of course, a fair number of those emails are unanswered comments.... Sorry, ya'll. /o\

Dear Yuletide Author,

Thank you so much for writing for me! You share one of these tiny fandoms with me, so I already like you and will be delighted by whatever you choose to write for me -- but if you like knowing more about my tastes or the particular things I like/want for these fandoms, read on! (or, if you've hit the 'oh god what have I done' stage of getting your assignment, I've included some plot bunnies to kick your brain out of the panic zone ♥)

An incomplete list of things I likeCollapse )

Banlieue 13Collapse )


Political AnimalsCollapse )


Books of the RaksuraCollapse )

Today, I took my 93-year-old grandmother to vote for Wendy Davis and Leticia Van de Putte. ♥ (this was actually a tad surprising, since she is *also* the kind of person who listens to Rush Limbaugh, but apparently the abortion debate cranked her off enough to take up the opposition. Atta girl, Granny.)

My other pasttimes lately have been avoiding my email and other forms of communication with people while watching the entirety of Lewis, and consequently falling prey to all the Oxford scenery and doing my annual re-read of Gaudy Night. I haven't even considered Yuletide yet. Ack.

I continued on to re-read Murder Must Advertise, which is my favorite of the non-Harriet novels, and was struck once again by how acutely, almost depressingly perceptive Dorothy Sayers was. Her cynical observations about advertising still ring true 80-odd years later, as do vast swathes of Gaudy Night -- the discussions about women and education, the scene where Annie's daughter proclaims her intention to run a garage and drive a motorcycle, Harriet's thoughts about partnership, profession, and marriage.... Aside from loving the cases and the shenanigans and Peter's piffle, I get something new out of her books every time.

Anyway. Lewis! spoilers through S7 (aka S8 US, because PBS is dumb)Collapse )
