everysecondtuesday: The text reads "Tuesday."  The image is of Castiel being amazing. (tuesday is colorful)
I was talking with [personal profile] lizfu, and this song needs to be a SPN vid, complete with over-literalism and Dean's confused face because fucking magnets. How do they work?

I've been kind of exhausted for a while. It really, really seems to show lately. With that in mind, a poll!

Should Tuesday finish and post her 5x18 porn before 5x19 airs?

Fuck yes. Handcuffs!

Yes, because Castiel/Dean make-up/break-up sex is what that ep was missing

"Not for nothing, but the last time someone looked at me like that, I got laid."

Can I repeat? HANDCUFFS.

Last night I finally found the last fic to round out my Castiel/Dean kink recs set, but now I can't find the file. I may need to do several Delicious searches and type it up all over again. Also missing: the next Castiel/Sam recs set. Did I put these in another text file? Accidentally save over them? IDEK.

[personal profile] lizfu lent me season three of SPN, and I've watched a few more episodes. I like Bela thus far and am further convinced I'm on the right track for the demon politics of the S4 AU I'm writing for [personal profile] jmtorres with the working title "Dean for Boy King 2012." Also, Rubyyy, I missed you, bb. Who do I have to bribe to get a Ruby icon?

(No, really. Who?)

You know how sometimes, someone has a brilliant, amazing idea you want to enable? [personal profile] jmtorres is possibly (by which I mean, she is) constructing a Supernatural university AU vid. That's right, vid. That delighted shrieking you've heard off and on the past couple of days? Totally me. She's looking for good clips of Misha Collins that look suitably proffesorial, and I am useless in that I get distracted for several hours when I really should be writing drafts for [community profile] backtoschool entries staring at pretty pictures of Misha Collins on the internet. You see how this is a problem.

So! I bid thee, dreamroll & flist, to save me from myself and encourage this most amazing of vids by pointing me in the right direction.

First, a webcomic rec on DA pointed my way by [personal profile] lizfu: Romantically Apocalyptic. I love the art style, and the writing is fabulous in its mix of a small bit of gentle despair with a large dollop of whimsy. When you get gleeful lines like, "No more radioactive soup for me!" picturing the character's beaming smile and surprised, joyous excitement behind zir mask, you know a comic has its hooks in you.


Two fic recs that are not SPN! . . . Or at least, not exactly.

I would blame someone else, but I know she already blames herself for her own actions even before she threw these links at me, so I'm not going to add to those burdens. Have some hilarious Misha/Jensen fic by [livejournal.com profile] elizah_jane:

Fandom Is Srs Bznz has all these fabulous meta moments and incorporates LJ, fandom wank, and Zachary Quinto, but those are all just delicious cherry-flavored icing to me, because this is a fic about complete and total assholes falling in love. My love for asshole characters is great, and when they inflict themselves on each other, it is EVEN BETTER.

I am breaking one of my own rules in recommending Wherein Misha is Released Into An Unsuspecting Populace and its sequels, because the series is unfinished. But here is the thing: even if she never finishes this, it will be worth it! I laughed so hard last night I could not breathe. Literally. My inhaler and I had some quality time together. So I guess if you have a respiratory infection of some kind and asthma, I would not recommend this story; at least, not until you are better and with your rescue inhaler at hand. It is that funny, and almost relentless in its glory.

And if you have a problem with RPF, I'd recommend reading them anyway. Do a search/replace for their names and SPN and there you go, instant fabulous original fic about actors of some random genre TV show and their hilarious shenanigans.

Attempts to vid Chuck--specifically, attempts to vid Bryce Larkin--are actually quite soothing. This is possibly because no vidding is actually accomplished because vidding requires doing more than staring at his pretty, pretty face.

In other things, sleep still hasn't happened, bringing my average hours per night the past four days to something like three. If I do not sleep on the plane, I may find out if Disneyworld is the happiest place on Earth to have a sleep deprivation related meltdown. Even if the answer is yes, I'd rather forgo the whole experience.

The latest news on the Pretty Monster is there is no news. The local Fry's finally received the computer back from Sony. There were no details included as to what was wrong, no apparent attempts made to fix it, no pictures of the supposed damage as had been requested now weeks ago, and when the local Fry's cracked open the case, the motherboard was undamaged. On one hand, yay, they are no longer trying to demand $650 for a motherboard that I knew I hadn't dropped and damaged as Sony and corporate were trying to claim. On the other, what the hell were they doing with it for the past two and a half months? Was it sitting on the shelf collecting dust as they made up ways to try to gouge me for money? I have no clue.

It's edging toward five months since the time I originally gave it to them for the corrupted RAM problem (and got it back in a state of total meltdown). They've had possession of my laptop for over a quarter of the time I've owned it. Is their current endgame to keep it, give it back to me when the warranty runs out, and then demand money to fix it when I bring it back in because they've done absolutely no work on it?

I know I've said this before, but I will probably be repeating this for the rest of my life: Never buy from Fry's.

You may also want to avoid Sony in general or the Vaios in particular. If you absolutely must buy from Fry's, purchasing a warranty is apparently worthless. The warranty just means that when the computer inevitably breaks, you will give it to them and never get it back.

Now that I've riled myself up thinking about corporate evil again, it's time to make another stab at vidding. By which I mean staring, helplessly charmed, at Matt Bomer and his gorgeous face.

p.s. I know I still haven't done VVC vid recs, but while I'm on the topic of Chuck: [personal profile] jmtorres's Get Off is still just as amazing the 74562th time around.

It's come to my attention that I am most productive fic-wise if I'm writing for fests or others, and that I work better on my original stuff when I have several fic going I'm excited about. This means I'm weighing trying Bangs again in addition to my current projects, most of which should be done by the end of the month (two Askewniverse fic, two Bones fic, assorted fic for FFFA, and Death Bingo fic in various states). Most of November will be eaten by [livejournal.com profile] yuletide and [community profile] 3_ships, but I will need things to do after that.

[livejournal.com profile] apocabigbang looks fun. I'm trying to keep things manageable, but 10k in four months doesn't sound that bad, especially considering my [livejournal.com profile] third_monday was that long and written in a week. I mean, apoca-fic. [livejournal.com profile] svmadelyn, if I worked on a Chuck fic for this, would you occasionally poke me about it?

I have until November 3rd to decide. If I don't write fic, I think I'll volunteer as an artist and make a vid. Because really, I can't say this enough times: apoca-fic.

Also intriguing are [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang (the world is missing a very long Hermione/Luna "Hermione takes over the wizarding world" or "Hermione was Sorted Hufflepuff" AU) and [livejournal.com profile] bau_bigbang (this will depend on my thoughts once I've watched the rest of Criminal Minds with [personal profile] bessemerprocess).

In my list of fen-related points of curiosity, how many vids out there are there for "Clint Eastwood" by Gorillaz? Are there any for Chuck? These are the things I wonder when I listen to my iTunes these days. Well, this, and how sick of Passion Pit people are going to be once I start that project.

Windows Movie Maker is everything terrible I thought of it before and more. If I am reasonable and have no further lapses in judgment, I will never again vid with linear editing software. That said, WMM didn't mangle the audio beyond hope of salvage like ZS4. So there's that.

And I won the battle! I said either I would finish this vid or it would finish me. It was a near thing, but it's done. No, you do not want to know how many hours I have spent in front of the computer since last night, nor do you want to know whether I've slept or just subsisted on caffeine.

Anyone have hosting suggestions for a 26.5 MB vid? It's Doctor Who, set to "Protect Me from What I Want" by Placebo.

(And if there already exists a vid in this fandom to this song about Torchwood One's doomed love affair with alien technology, please don't tell me. At least not for a few days, because agh. As I asked [livejournal.com profile] hello_scorpling, why did no one warn me that vidding was like going on a three day bender and waking up after in an alley with empty spray paint cans and broken bottles of what was once tequila surrounding you, no pants, and foremost at your thoughts the dawning realization that unlike many people and their works of beauty through the medium of tags, you are not an artist, but a vandal?)
