cut for a brief and faintly ridiculous conversation about king stannis baratheon, first in my heart )

In other news, the masterlist for [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen is up, so I can confess to writing Here I Dreamt I Was an Architect [Minerva, ensemble, PG] for the incomparable [personal profile] lyras. I was quite honestly shocked at the amount of feedback it received. ♥♥♥♥♥♥

I don't remember if I ever linked my gift, which was amazing, so here it is again: What it takes [Trio & DA, PG13], which awesomely enough, was written by [personal profile] lyras. About halfway through it, I suspected [personal profile] lyras had written it, but then I talked myself out of it, since I had written for her. It's wonderful, so check it out if you have a chance.

I got to watch Game of Thrones tonight! Some of it, anyway. By the time I found a decent live stream that wasn't buffering incessantly, the episode was already thirty minutes in, but I'm not complaining, because GAME OF THRONES.

Anyway, I pretty much loved it. Except, THEON. UGH. I would not have minded more Theon.

I keep telling myself I'm done with the GoT Kink Meme, but I also keep finding prompts that demand my attention. Like this Robb/Theon tattoo!kink prompt that has been haunting my sleep. I want this fic in my life. Badly. At this point, I think I haven't written it because I don't trust my own brain. Instead of shameless inkporn, I'd probably end up with something along the lines of my 4,000 word fill with not too much steamy porn but a lot of pining, fapping, and creepy internal monologues about possession (I'm looking at you, Robb); let me show you it.

Speaking of Game of Thrones, [livejournal.com profile] workswithwords is hosting a Robert's Rebellion comment ficathon, for all your pre-canon character/shipping needs. Which, yes. As much as I love reading and writing about the younger characters, there is also a gaping hole in my life where all the Ned/Catelyn first time/early marriage/curtain fic should be.

Also, sign-ups for the next [livejournal.com profile] got_exchange are open until next Sunday. I'm slowly bullying [personal profile] themostepotente into doing it.

As far as the Game of Thrones tv show goes, season two starts tonight, and I'm still... divided. I'm upset that I won't be able to watch it as it airs, because season one was amazing, but at the same time, I'm kind of relieved that I can put off watching Theon destroy my soul for another year. I was telling [personal profile] themostepotente on the phone last night1 that I recently looked at some screencaps from the season two trailers and featurettes, and there was one that nearly killed me, because it pinpointed the exact moment when the tv!fandom will turn on Theon like a pack of cannibals.

I finally got my [personal profile] hp_beholder fic sorted, two days after the deadline. I now need to worry about [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen and Remix.

The last two years I did remix, I ended up with a finished product I actually liked, but I had a really hard time getting there. This time, my Remix fic is practically writing itself, which is awesome, because I'm pretty sure my [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen fic wants me to die in a fire. Which is weird, because my assignment is more or less exactly what I asked for.

[livejournal.com profile] frontbits is coming over shortly. I do hope she brings tacos.

1 I probably should have some kind of macro/keyboard shortcut for this phrase, at this point.

recs post!

Beautiful fanart I have looked at today, part 876987689609:

(Once again, all distressingly work safe)

Harry Potter

Lestrange by [personal profile] amarantbus [Bellatrix]

Best Person in the World by [personal profile] chashirskiy [Ron/Hermione]

James and Lily by [personal profile] adorelulu [James/Lily]

The Win by [personal profile] viria13 [James/Lily]

Look at Me by [personal profile] nami86 [Snape, Lily, Harry]

Hunger Games

Good and Safe by [personal profile] whatever_lu [Katniss, Rue]

Katniss by [personal profile] raviolillama [Katniss]

A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones1

Lannister Gold by [personal profile] arkoniel [Jaime/Cersei]

Rhaegar and Lyanna by [personal profile] arkoniel [Rhaegar/Lyanna]

Lyanna Stark by [personal profile] riavel [Lyanna]

Robb Stark by [personal profile] thephoenixprod [Robb]

King in the North by [personal profile] riavel [Robb]

Beyond the Wall by [personal profile] evolvana [Jon, Ghost]

Ygritte by [personal profile] lilyhbp [Ygritte]

Ygritte by [personal profile] riavel [Ygritte]

Jon + Ygritte by [personal profile] monizc [Jon/Ygritte]

You Know Nothing, Jon Snow by [personal profile] marinelli [Jon/Ygritte]

My ASoiaF shipping tendencies are really in display in this one -- Jaime/Cersei and Rhaegar/Lyanna are probably in my top five. As far as Jon goes, I ship Jon/Robb pretty hard, and I also like Jon/Sam2, but I love, love, love Jon/Ygritte. She was probably one of my favorite characters in ASoS, and by the time that book was over, I desperately wanted to read/write an AU where they went looking for Grendel's children instead of leaving that cave.

cut for more A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones waffle, complete with Jon Snow meaderings, totally batshit Targaryen theorizing, and also some potentially spoilerish stuff for A Dance with Dragons )

1 I stole the first two from [personal profile] themostepotente, but they are so utterly gorgeous I figured they deserved a second look.
2 I really think I'm a Fandom of One with this pairing, but I don't care. My love for these two is pure.
3 Ironic, I guess, since his grandmother was a Targaryen.

weep little lion man.

So, I was flipping through parts of Prisoner of Azkaban earlier, and I suddenly remembered that it has always kind of bothered me that Remus... forgot to take the Wolfsbane potion that night. Granted, it was a pretty crowded evening. Remus was in the middle of having a large chunk of his world-view turned inside out, what with presumed!dead!Peter not really being dead, and escaped!murderer!Sirius actually being innocent. I also accept that Remus transforming precisely when he did was a narrative diversion -- Peter needed a means to escape, otherwise that entire plot arc would've gone very differently -- and that book!Remus probably didn't feel every twist and shift of the moon cycle in his bones the way fanon!Remus does1, but still. Werewolf. Full moon. You'd think he would've noted it on his calendar, or something.

I don't know why I'm thinking about this right now. I'm working on outlines for two different fest fics, and neither of them have anything to do with Remus.


Good lord, Tumblr is a timesuck. If I stuck to just checking my dash, it would be one thing, but the I start spasmodically clicking tags, and then I end up losing whole hours of my life.

I'm trying to decide if I want to take a nap or watch the second half of The Fellowship of the Ring. I watched the first half last night, and by the time my DVD player asked for the second disc it was almost midnight, and I had to be up early. Oh, Frodo. I'm pretty sure you and Sam are still my favorite OTP.

Two or three days ago, I was on the phone with [personal profile] themostepotente, and we were talking about ASoIaF, mainly about how much we both ship Littlefinger/Sansa, and from there we drifted into favorite OTPs, and I said mine was either Frodo/Sam or Merry/Pippin. I asked her about hers, but then I was like 'never mind, it's probably some dead elves from the Silmarillion', and we lost twenty or thirty minutes talking about Orcslash and the sons of Fëanor while we tried to remember the name of the sword Maeglin stole from Eöl2, and at some point I started laughing hysterically, because we were seriously having the geekiest conversation in the history of geeky conversations.

1 I'm terribly guilty of this one myself, so. I'm not casting any stones, or anything.
2 Anguriel, as it turns out. Sigh.
