I have comments to answer, a fic to write, several fics bookmarked to read, a recs post to code, and my sign-up for [personal profile] got_exchange to fill out, but I have accomplished none of these things, and I probably won't anytime soon, because this gifset of Richard Armitage in a speedo has taken over my life.

Pointless post is pointless. I just wanted to share Richard Armitage in a speedo with all of you, because I hate to suffer alone.

shiny things.

I should be in bed, but I stayed up far too late last night, which screwed my sleeping scheduled.

Thusly, Tumblr. And thusly, picspam. With capslocks commentary.

Here, look at Gerard Way's face. You know you want to.

we all want to party when the funeral ends )

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.

There are five fics tagged Broom Cupboard Sex at AO3. As it turns out, all five are mine. Also, I'm apparently the only user who truly believes Grimmauld Place is a character in its own right.

My favorite writing tropes and incredibly ridiculous headcanons; let me show you them.

Archiving all of my fics at AO3 has definitely been an experience. It's forced me to read over all my older stuff -- things I haven't looked at or thought about in six or seven years -- and yeah. I wrote quite a bit in 2005, but let's just say it wasn't always my best work. I've also got two or three fics that don't make a whole lot of sense outside the LiveJournal context they originally came with. Take the Harry/Mrs. Black portrait frottage fic (please) -- I didn't write that just because I got smacked with the crackfic stick that night; it was inspired by a meme that was going around LiveJournal like wildfire at the time.

I'm stuck somewhere between wanting to have everything in one place and "wow, people are actually reading the Stan Shunpike porn I wrote just to freak out [ profile] happiestwhen."


In other news, I got my prompt assignments for [ profile] dysfuncentine and [ profile] sirius_black, and I am super excited about it.

Both prompts were my first choice. I've already got the pairing picked out for [ profile] dysfuncentine, and most of the story is sketched out in a vague sort of way, mainly because it's been sitting in my head for years. The [ profile] sirius_black fic might be a little trickier -- the prompt is loose enough that I could go two or three different ways with it, and I'm still pretty divided about it.

Oh, sleep.
