There we go, back on DW too

And now I've gotten my icons updated on DW and made sure entries will crosspost, I think I'm set. Though I probably should have done this months ago because now DW is missing a few entries but I can't remember how to fix that so I suppose it'll just stay that way.

I'm getting back in to looking up some writing comms - I've already signed up for [community profile] hc_bingo and I'm looking at a few others. I miss doing those and a lot of the ones I used to get involved with for weekly prompts don't seem to be active anymore, which is a shame since it looks like at least one of them was active up until just a few weeks ago. Those comms were always great for the muse!

Meh, I'll figure it out. Meanwhile, I'm slowly getting my VM fic posted at AO3 though I'm just posting them as is and including the original post date in a note. It's a bit fun to see how my writing has changed over the years, considering I wrote those back in 2005/2006!

Happy Friday, folks! I'm going to bed. I have to be up in like 5 hours but I got caught up in icons and writing a new Captain Canary (or rewriting the start - I can't find the notebook with the original start). Oops.

Where do you stand in the fight for Beacon Hills? Are you a proud hunter or a determined werewolf? Join [personal profile] beacon_hills, an interactive challenge comm for MTV's Teen Wolf and find out. The 5th Phase is starting and it'd be great fun to have some new member join in the fun.

You can either become a Hunter or a Werewolf, but both team are great and you'll have fun with which every one you are sorted into.

This video is so cute.

Apparently this made the rounds on tumblr, but it sadly never appeared on my dash. So I'm sharing it here because I loved it.

Kris Allen, ladies and gentlemen

He should totally be one of your favorite things ever. Because he will make your life better by acting like a complete and utter dork.



Why, yes, he and friends/members of his band DID dress up as Ghostbusters (and the Marshmallow Man). Yes, they did run around DC chasing each other in costume. Yes, there is video and there are pictures and an article.

Pictures and article can be found here.

tvrealm: Episode 3x19: My Guide To All Things...




I discovered this pairing back in 2006 and I've loved it ever since. There's so many possibilities to explore (and believe me, fandom has done so). It's been a good long while since I've actually written this pairing but that's not because I've lost interest and it's not because I don't want to write them (writer's block, anytime you want to leave me alone so I can write some Buffy/Dean again, that'd be awesome), it's just because I've been playing in other fandoms. That said, I have a soft spot for this pairing because it led me to some of the best people I've had the pleasure of knowing. I still read Buffy/Dean and I still look for icons and art of them, which is the reason I decided to do them for this challenge.

IMAGE HEAVY UNDER THE CUT!

**Artists: If you see your stuff here and would prefer I take it down, please let me know and I'll take it off the post, no problem. I checked the posts that they were at in the Buffy/Dean community and didn't see anything but there's always a chance I missed it since I had most of these saved on my computer anyway so, again, just let me know and I can take them down!**

My Guide To All Things Buffy/Dean )

And, really, that's all just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what you can find for this pairing! Hope you liked what you saw and I definitely suggest checking out more of the art and fics done by all of these people. If you'd like to see more, I suggest checking out [profile] buffyxdean.

Gleeverse: Challenge 3: Go Your Own Way




It was so hard to narrow this down to ten ships! But I managed it. There's groups on here too, just as a fair warning in case that's not your thing. And now....

To the ships! )

RL update

So, I got a call from one of the managers at my new job and found out that I was the top seller in the office with over $1000 in sales. That means I've hit my first promotion already and they're looking to see how I'm going to be ending what they call the fast start competition. Thing is, I have one person who has agreed to an appointment. The three that I had, they didn't really give me many referrals. And the referrals that I've got haven't answered the phone. The family that I talked to about setting up an appointment hasn't followed through (though I have to check my email since one has to do this over email anyway) and the other family member completely ignored me (which was awesome, yeah, since I knew he had his phone since he was texting my mom when I was texting him).


So, I don't know how this is going to go. My stepdad still wants to see the hunting knives and my mom said that his sister sounded interested (and she's looking for her own place so she'll need kitchen stuff, I figure) and [profile] starrydreaming said yes to an appointment (because she's awesome and knows that I get base pay for even having an appointment) but everyone else is pretty much avoiding setting a time up or they want prices first and don't care when I say that that comes during the appointment.


I'm frustrated since I can do demos over the phone using the internet and people can get things that way but that doesn't mean much when calls aren't being answered, etc. We're only allowed to advertise a certain way (like no taking out a billboard but I can make fliers and business cards, etc.) so I might give that a shot because this? This isn't working.


Wish me luck on getting more names or at least getting some people to actually agree to either a phone demo (it's watching videos, that's not even hard, darn it!) or a demo in person.


To top it off, we've got a team meeting tonight and I'm sick. These team meetings last 3 hours because the last part of them is usually getting on our phones and calling people about appointments. I'm hoping with the fact that I'm losing my voice that I can get out of there a bit early. Heck, maybe there's someone out there that needs to buy a gift for someone that's, I don't know, getting their own place or getting married or something. I can hope, right?


So, yeah, wish me luck, cross your fingers and all that!

Wish me luck!

Agggh! Wish me luck guys - cross your fingers, toes, say a prayer, send good thoughts, whatever.

I've got a job interview on Monday at noon with a place that's right here in the same town that I live in. Well, at least the interview will be. I'm not even entirely sure what the job is since the ad didn't give details but it's for a marketing place so we'll see.

It just feels like a good start to the new year, especially since I just put in the application yesterday and they called me this morning. So, I'm hopeful. And I'm applying at the hospital too - a friend of my parents told me to apply and then to let her know when I do. If it makes me more money, that'd be amazing.

So, like I said, wish me luck for both of those!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!

It's ten minutes until Christmas and I spent Christmas Eve with the family - we rotate and this year, Christmas Eve was at my parents' house. And dinner was definitely yummy - tamales, beans, spanish rice, carne adovada, homemade tortillas, and then sweet rice for dessert, which is pretty much our tradition every year and then tomorrow it will be at my grandparents' house and that'll be ham, etc.

Then, I got home and wrapped presents while watching Jeff Dunham's Christmas Special. I got it on DVD a couple years ago and so it's now part of my tradition to watch it at this time of year. :D

And hey! It's officially Christmas! So, to all those who celebrate:




And if you don't celebrate it, then I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season and that your Sunday is awesome!

Pimpin' for charity!

Photobucket


On August 3, 2011, Kris tweeted that his guitar had been stolen out of his car. We believe that we can turn such a negative event into a positive by donating guitars and other musical instruments to kids who will love them as much as Kris loves his guitar (and his viola, and his piano, and his ukelele.....).


Go check out [profile] krisfansunite if you'd like to make a donation - the money is going to various classrooms/schools to help get musical instruments to classrooms and schools (the quote above is directly from the giving page). The donation drive is doing offers of things like fic, fan made tour guides from Kris's first tour, downloads of his songs, art, etc. in exchange for donations. You can check out the offers here.

If you're not in the AI fandom and don't really want any of those things but you think it's a good cause, then I hope you feel free to donate anyway! If that's what you're looking to do, then you can just go straight to Kris's DonorsChoose Giving Page.

Aw, season 1 of Glee, I miss you.

So, I'm watching the first season of Glee and you know what I really miss? I miss Quinn from that season - the Quinn that totally stood up to Sue and blackmailed her to get a yearbook pic for Glee and then told her to take her Cheerios uniform and shove it. The Quinn that laughed and goofed off with Puck by messing with his mohawk like she did during Hell-O (hey, my OTP may be Puckleberry but I also loved seeing that side of her and they were pretty adorable back then). I miss the actual character development that happened with Quinn. And then this season it was all about getting her Cheerios uniform back and being popular again and then the whole Sam/Quinn/Finn storyline. *sigh*

And the other person I miss? I miss the Rachel that didn't need a guy. Oh, she wanted one, no mistake. But last night I watched her slap Finn and call him out on his lies and tell him that her dreams were bigger than him and OMG, what happened to that Rachel? I love that she got friends in season 2 and that she and Kurt finally stopped hating on each other and same with her and Mercedes. But when it came to the storyline for her and Finn, it felt like both characters were two completely different people. I hated who Rachel was when she was with Finn because it felt like she was constantly trying to please him and it felt like he was constantly trying to change her. What happened to that girl who was determined to get out of Lima and what happened to that guy who was, yes, worried about being popular but didn't act like he was perfect? The sesason 2 finale gave me a taste of that Rachel too when she told Kurt she was choosing New York and then they killed it by having her agree to date Finn for a year. Seriously? What the hell is the point of getting back together with someone with the condition that you're going to break up in a year so you can go do your own thing? Why not work on being friends instead so you can keep that once graduation happens?

This is what happens when I watch season 1. I remember why I loved these characters. I mean, I didn't hate season 2 but I think the first season was way better. Season 2 obviously had some good points but then other parts of it just felt like a total disaster.

Now, I'm going back to my DVDs so I can watch the back 9 and maybe by the end of it, I'll be in the mood to work on my big bang for Gleeverse.

Glee fic recs

Photobucket


You're going to find various types of fic on this list - shippy (ha, that word just makes me giggle) and gen. And while I'm a Puckleberry shipper, you'll find other ships on here too, don't worry! I'll mention what couple(s) are in the fic so if you're really flat out against reading a pairing, you won't have to.

List will be done in the usual way - a bit from the fic and some thoughts on it and, this time, the pairings.

Anyway, hope you guys have fun checking some of these out!

Fic Rec Time! )

Okay, I'm stopping for now but I didn't get even remotely close to all the fics I wanted to put on here. Oh well, I guess that means you guys get another list! Especially since I think a good portion of this list was gen actually. That's surprising. But I just realized I have a ton of those saved up along with the shippy fics that I've got saved so I guess that works out.

Hope you have fun with these!
