Elf's Big Post of Doom - Life update, fandom and more

* So I know it has been forever since I've posted much beyond fic here. I rarely post more than once every few months now, but I am still here and I do read through my flists here and at LJ, but I spend more of my time at Tumblr. If you have one, and would like to follow me there, I'm elfflame there, too. I am also at Polyvore as elfflame, if anyone has an account there. I haven't been doing as much there recently, but I still glance in there from time to time and get bursts of creativity there. I love it.

* Family is doing well. Mom seems happy in the new place, and the kids love having my parents right there. Niece is always running down to spend time with her, and now that nephew is more mobile, he's doing so, too. Dad went on a ski trip about a month ago and decided to pretend to be a stunt skiier and did a 360 off an icy mogul on the slope and dislocated his shoulder. The prognosis from the doctor is that it is healing, but he did break it a little as well. They're muddling along, though it's a great deal harder now that he only has one arm to use. At least sis and brother-in-law are right there.

* Work! I have been working. I was at the very end of my rope, and thinking I would have to do some things I really wasn't looking forward to when my temp place finally called with a job. I am now working for a company in Eastlake, just south of the University Bridge, and the job I was initially doing was right up my alley. Then someone in the department decided to retire, so they felt me out about doing that job, so now I have a definite permanent job. We just have to wait for my contract with the temp place to be up before they hire me on permanent. Co-workers are great. Lots of great people to talk to. And the job itself is pretty brainless, so that's fine. Means I can think of other things while I work. Like stories. The scary part of the job is coming up in about two weeks, when we send out a mass mailing. I get to scan in and update the department on what we've gotten back. But currently we're in the off time, so I've been able to do the other job, which has been nice.

* One of the co-workers brought in her new laptop last week to show me Scrivener. I knew of it from all the jabber on the NaNoWriMo boards about it, but I'd never tried it myself, because I figured I couldn't afford it. Turns out it's $40, which is definitely doable, and there are some major selling qualities... So I downloaded it Friday night, and spent a good portion of yesterday playing with it and putting in info for my Nano from 2009, which was the first original Nano I've done. The story has a few major flaws, so I'm going to use the original more as an outline and guide of where to take the new one. Still not finished inputting everything for it into the program, but I have plans to set up a bunch more. But my plan is to play with it on the weekends (you get 30 non-consecutive days free, a major selling point on its own) until I get offered perm at my job, then buy it.

* Speaking of Nano, I still haven't finished my Nano for this last year. I'm well over 60k now, and I "won," so it's mostly just been trying to get myself to finish it. Still love it, though. And I am getting toward the end. I think I have 10-15k left at least... That's the next project that gets put into Scrivener.

* And one more NaNo note...my previous Nano, the second set of H/D fairy tales, is incomplete here on IJ, and still unedited. Not sure if I want to finish posting the rest at this late date, unless I'm specifically asked. So we'll see. I've been working on editing my NaNos with Wolfish Cat, and we just finished the first set of H/D fairy tales, so next comes the Sultan's Slave. :) Looking forward to that one.

* Cats are still around, though the girl seems to want to be hurt, because she keeps waking me very early in the morning. Anyone have advice on stopping that, because the lack of sleep is really starting to wear on me. Boy is slowing down, which worries me, but he hasn't had one of his attacks in years. Knock on wood that he won't.

* TV: Still watching a lot of tv. Mad Men, Grimm, and Castle are my most-favorite these days. Still haven't caught up with Supernatural. And watch way too much reality tv. Would really like that trend to go away. I think unless something great happens on Revolution soon, I'll stop watching that one. Just...nothing there. It's too bad, too. And Defiance isn't a whole lot better. The alien Malfoy family is...yeah... Looking forward to seeing White Collar and Warehouse 13 again. And I know that Haven was renewed, too, though that probably won't pop up for a few more months. Getting towards the end of Season 3 of Glee with Foodie. Enjoyed Matt Bomer, and loved Unique...but then I loved Alex on the Glee Project (I did say I watched a lot of reality TV, right?), so it was great to see him again. He and Damion were my top two, and I couldn't stand the other two. Foodie and I generally watch two episodes of whichever show and a movie, but with Doctor Who on right now, we've been watching that instead and rounding out the evening with some Red Dwarf. It's been great fun rewatching the show. More so because she's never gotten to see them in order like this before. :) Reminds me of the 90s when I got to see it at Norwescon...

* Future plans: hearing possible whispers of Lubricus, which I would absolutely adore going to if it happens, but I'm nowhere in the loop on that one, and I don't know if I'll be in the middle of a mailing when it happens, so I might not be able to get the time off. I'm also hoping to go back to Norwescon, given that I haven't been to one since the late 90s. I miss it. It would be fun to actually go to panels, and meet some of the locals I know from LJ. :)

* Genealogy is going well... I had another distant cousin contact me, this one from one of the skimpy branches of my family tree, so that made me very happy. I'm looking forward to more contact with her. As of this moment, my family tree file has more than 4600 individuals in it, most of whom were hand-entered by me. I've been being more diligent about recording where information came from, and it's all starting to really pull together. I love doing it, I just hate my brick walls... Particularly the German Jewish contingent. Every time I start to look into that branch, I just get very depressed. I'm lucky. My grandfather's father got them out of Germany in 33, but there were some extended family members of his wife's family who might not have been so lucky. If anyone is interested in reading more, or would like help with their own family tree, just let me know. I love talking about this stuff, and helping others get set up.

* Kindle: I've been reading more. Still mostly fanfiction, but slowly leaking into original works I've been able to find here and there, and the occasional actual book, but I prefer my Kindle because it's small and easy to use, and I don't have to deal with heavy books in my bag, or how badly I'm battering paperbacks. I did find myself a toy that helped me to find more fanfic (and original fic), if anyone is interested: Fan Fiction Downloader. It only helps with certain sites, but one of them is FF.net/Fictionpress, so between those and AO3, there's a ton of fic to read. I think the next thing I'll likely do with it is either connect to the library or buy myself a copy of Hunger Games. I've still not read it, and I really need to. That series and the Percy Jackson books are at the top of my list. Not sure what I'll read beyond that. Any suggestions, folks?

And that's all, though I'll probably do that AO3 meme that's been floating around. Since I didn't do it at year-end this past year.

Update on Me and NaNoWriMo

I know I've been pretty silent this year. Here's what's been going on.

* Still no job, but I've been slowly selling off my Magic cards, which has helped somewhat.

* Parents moved in with my sister and her family into a huge place in Eastern Seattle right next to the Arboretum in Montlake, if you know the Seattle Area. It's a gorgeous house. Mom and dad have a nice little downstairs apartment that's about the size of their old house's main floor, and tons of storage space for everyone, so they're not really missing the downstairs at all. Even better, Mom has an elevator so she no longer has to deal with stairs, which was becoming an increasingly difficult issue, so we're all glad of that. Sis is now working on getting her to stop driving, as the MS is slowly getting worse, and it's taking her longer and longer to get to the car. We've started bi-weekly dinners, which has been nice. More time with all of them, which I am bad about, so it's a perfect excuse to see them all and stay updated. Sis and the family will be heading down to brother-in-law's family for Thanksgiving, which is their norm, so I'm going to help mom and dad with thanksgiving in the main house, and I'm going to try to make mashed potatoes in sis's crock pot. Wish me luck...

* Also in family news, my grandmother passed away this summer. She was my last living grandparent, and I will miss her, but I was never as close to her as I was to my other grandmother who died in 2010. We had a lovely service at their church in Bellevue, and her pastor, who was just about to retire, was able to do the service. It ended up being the last she did at the church, so it made it doubly special. I did a slideshow of pictures of grandma's life, which was wonderful, and everyone wanted copies, so I'm doing slideshows of all the grandparents for the family for Christmas. Except that every time I see the shots of my grandfather who died in 91, I start crying. Makes it hard to go through the photos. But I'm getting there.

* I am not a business person, and don't know how to sell myself, so despite posting some signs, I have yet to get a bite on my genealogy business. If anyone has some extra money laying around, and are curious about their family history, I'd certainly love to help. Comment below, and we can talk. :)

* I have, however, gotten a couple of nibbles from the folks in my building about cat-sitting. For those who don't know, I have two cats, and have lived with cats since my junior year of high school. I love them. It's one reason we moved into the building, that it was cat friendly. Apparently the manager has been watching people's cats (and a few other small animals) for free, but it's driving her up the wall, especially with how picky some people are, so she asked me to help, then suggested I offer a service. Some people are still taking advantage of her and saying they can't pay, but...well, at least this way, she's got someone to shove them at now. So I have one job over the Thanksgiving week watching two cats who are very sweet (well, once's sweet and one's feral, so doesn't get on with anyone but her owner), and then another around Christmas. Feeling pretty good about all this. Not a *ton* of money, but might be enough to round out to my rent at the end of the month, especially if I sell off a few more cards.

* The current TV season has been a bit depressing. No more Eureka, Fringe is ending, way too many reality tv shows, and the one hope I had for the season, Revolution, is kind of a bust... Sci Fi has one show I might try, but that doesn't start until next year. And...Elementary is not working for me. So...it's all left me kind of meh. And then, of course, we have Who (Gaaah!), Downton (*sobs*), and Misfits (not sure about that season opener...), which have at least been more interesting than the American TV shows this season. Oh, and Merlin, which is also as depressing...It's frankly been hard to watch, though Mordred is pretty, at least.

* On the other hand, I have been watching Buffy season 4 (my favorite) and Angel season 1 with Foodie, which has been great fun. So many great episodes this season...we just watched Hush last week. All time best ever. I can't wait to see what she thinks when Oz returns...Or what she'll think of Lorne, but I guess he doesn't show until next season. I've definitely missed him in this one. I think it could have used his charm.

* And in other TV news...I've been watching Supernatural. I'm still not *hooked* hooked, but I am enjoying it. My description to others is that it feels sort of like the Hardy Boys to Buffy's Nancy Drew. :) And I came across a comment on Tumblr that I quite agree with today: "It's nothing like I expected, but exactly as described." Heh.

* Oh, yes, and Nano. I'm doing another original piece this year, so it's not been posted anywhere online. I wouldn't mind feedback, though, if people are interested. I've got two people I'm emailing the story as I go, section by section. The story is a Steampunk world adventure using archetypes I'm familiar with, which is to say, based on favorite characters/RP characters. There's more to it than that, of course. If you're not sure, but curious, my profile is here, and I've posted a snippet and blurb about the story.

* Fanfic is now on the back burner, because life is just too stressful at the moment. I stopped at D_D sometime earlier this year, but I do have a story I'm about to send in for K_K this year, and I also have a story for the Lucius Big Bang that should be going up sometime this month, so keep your eyes out for those. Otherwise, I'm trying to focus on job-hunting and original writing, so...wish me luck.

Rant on my least-liked fandom opinion

A Note: I know that not everyone hates Joss, I just had an epiphany, and needed to get this out. Comments are most definitely welcome, because I know I'm not the best at stating my opinion, and I know others can and will state it better, but I will cut comments if I feel they are being abusive/missing the point.

I've seen rants about Joss Whedon and feminism before. Specifically how some think he's not as feminist as fans seem to think he is. )

Arthurian Things post #7 - Guenevere

So every little girl is supposed to grow up wanting to be Guenevere, right? She's the fairy-tale princess of the story, after all. She gets her newly-crowned king, her father is the one who gives him the round table, and she even gets to fall in love with the second most eligible man in the land, and have him love her back. What's not to like? Everyone loves her. But I never did.

I loved Vanessa Redgrave in Camelot. She was wonderful, but that was to be expected. She was from one of the great acting families of England. How could she not be perfect? And I love Angel Colby in Merlin, too. She's sweet, and when they let her be, she really adds something to the story. Too bad the writers don't know how to do a long-term plot without selling their characters short.

But for me? Neither of them get past my dislike of the character's part in the stories overall. In fact, Vanessa played right to them, and Merlin's Gwen is falling into the same trap. I've always had a dislike for the character, but it took me until college to really realize why. She's glorified in every Arthurian story as this beautiful (usually golden-haired) perfect match for Arthur. She's the most beautiful woman in the land, so with no other reason, she must be his wife, right? What does it matter what she does after that, because that's after happily ever after?

It bugs me. Because Lancelot's not her only conquest. she's always flirting with the other knights. The movies less so than the stories, but it's there. Yes, Lancelot is her "other" "true love," but that doesn't stop her from denigrating the knights who don't adore her and wait on her hand and foot to curry favour with her. And it certainly doesn't stop her from flirting with as many of them as she can.

In college, I read one of the Lays of Marie de France. A story called Lanval. Lanval is a young knight who comes to Arthur's court, and when the Queen tries to flirt with him, he avoids her passes, making her angrier and angrier. And when she learns he's in love with a faerie, she finds a way to come between them, nearly parting them forever. Now this is a story written by a nun, but even so, it shows a medieval view of the queen and at least part of how they saw her at the time. As someone who craved the attention of men.

If it were only one conquest, I might look on her more favourably, but it's not. Time and time again, Guenevere is shown as unfaithful to Arthur. In some of the earlier tales, Mordred is not Arthur's son, but Guenevere's lover, who then abducts her to try to steal England from Arthur. It is Guenevere who suggests Gawain be forced to marry the lothly lady, in order to curtail his flirting with the ladies of the court. Yes, this one can be seen in a more positive light, but when you read the texts, invariably, Guenevere comes off as sounding rather annoyed or jealous, and not at all interested in protecting any other women so much as punishing Gawain.

In short stories or long, and even in the movies, whether it is only Lancelot or others she focuses on, she's the one seeking out this attention. She wants it. She craves it. And she will do anything to have it. And with Lancelot, she's cast in the role of Eve, and her bite of the apple destroys Camelot. See that how you will, and a case can be made for that being the medieval view of the day--that no woman can be a positive influence, but at least Morgana, even in the depths of her malice, stands up for herself and her people. Guenevere seems to stand for the type of woman who thinks she deserves whatever she wants, and damn the cost. That or the spoiled little rich girl who doesn't know any better and goes about her innocent and merry way, destroying all she touches because she refuses to see the result of her actions.

I was so excited to see such a different sort of Guenevere at the beginning of the Merlin series. Here was a girl who wouldn't be playing the spoiled princess, right? But I was wrong. With each season, my expectations have been crushed just a little bit more. Especially the past two.

I worry about this coming season of Merlin because the writers seem to be forgetting the premise of this show, and they've completely taken all obstacles out of the way for Arthur and Gwen. They didn't have to fight to get past them. They're just gone. One wonders if they'll just bring back Nimueh at the end of the season and let her trap Merlin in the Crystal Cave, and rename the show...because they seem to slowly be forgetting why the bromance between Merlin and Arthur was even there, and are slowly replacing that with Arthur and Gwen. And I worry that Gwen will become the very embodiment of everything I have always hated about the character, more focused on herself than on the girl I know she could be, if she'd been written right this time.

It's really too bad, too, because I love these actors, and when the story is on point, it's amazing. But sometimes, it's just really hard to watch.

So yeah, that's my rant about Guenevere. What do you think of the character? Do you prefer her or Morgana, or another female character from the stories entirely?

Apr. 30th, 2012

Arthurian Things post #6 - Morgana le Fae

I can't recall where, exactly, my love for Morgana came from. It was definitely before I was aware of Mists of Avalon, because I remember playing with others in the SCA, and when we played at being in Camelot, I always wanted to be Morgana. Part of it was the fact that evil characters are just more interesting. All Guenivere did was sit around and eat bonbons or need to be rescued. Or macked on any Knight who let her... :P

Mists of Avalon only increased my love for her, and made it difficult for me to watch things like Excalibur, where she's so unrepentantly evil with no obvious reason other than peevishness. Which isn't to say I didn't love her in Excalibur (hell, how can you not love Helen Mirren?), it's just that her reasoning leaves a lot to be desired. Plus, a Morgana without dark hair just seems wrong.

Then there was Helena's Morgana. I only watched the Merlin Mini-series once. She was a kind of freak (not surprising, given it was Helena), so that made her difficult to watch as well. Even though I was ready to love her version to the ends of the earth.

I was quite glad when the Mists Mini-series finally made it to TV, though it really didn't do justice to the story. The book has so many little details, it would have been hard to get them all in. Juliana Margoles was all right, but I'm not a fan, and this didn't make me one, either. It was just a lackluster version of a great book.

So it wasn't until BBC's Merlin came on the air that I finally saw the Morgana I truly loved: Katie McGrath. Katie brings everything to the table--looks, style, grace, and a seeming understanding of a lady and how she would hold herself. No, the show's not perfectly medieval, but I adored her. I only wished the writers had been willing to more slowly develop her evil, instead of forcing it the way they did and making it seem almost comical.

Even so, Katie manages to shine, when Morgana is truly feeling things, as opposed to plotting or leering evilly. You can see her heartbreak at losing Gwen, or her anger at Uther for what he's done to her and others. Her confusion over her powers in the second season was especially well-acted, and if they'd moved slower at the end of that season, I could easily see her sink into vengeance and madness.

There is one honorable mention here, too. Eva Green's Morgan in the Stars series, Camelot. Though she was unrepentant in her evil, we could not only see her suffering, but her reasoning, even if it was flawed. I had high hopes for her character. Too bad the series was cancelled in the first season...

I think the reason I prefer Morgana over others is that as a character, there's so much to draw from. Depending on the legends you choose, she can have up to nine (yes, nine, there is a mention in a legend or two) sisters, not to mention her brother. And Mordred, whether nephew or son, is always an excellent ally. Not to mention her sister's other sons (of which Gawain is my particular favorite).

But most of all? I love the incestuousness between she and Arthur (when it's there--I tend to gravitate toward those stories that have it). I love the angst, danger, and evil inherent because of that liaison, which is why I tend to prefer her as Mordred's mother over Morgause. And, deep down, I believe that Morgana both hates and loves Arthur, and it is that confusion that drives her to fight against him time and again.

So...who's your favorite Arthurian Character, and why?

Happiness Is:

* Never dipping below your minimum word-count all month, especially on a NaNoWriMo month, and finishing your story well ahead of schedule.  (currently over 53k and counting.  Almost done now, folks.  Still have a bunch of chapters to post here)

* Introducing a friend to a TV show you adore, and finding her enjoying it too. (Started watching Buffy with a friend from episode one.  We just finished Season two this past weekend.  Unfortunately we have to take a break to deal with the Holidays and then we'll be watching Glee, but I can't wait to see her reaction when it comes to Season 3...so much to see still! If you're curious, we've been liveblogging it and the other shows we're watching here)

* Having made it through a year alone and still being here successfully, even if life is not perfect. (Still need a job, but I have enough money to make it through the next few months.  Any help on the job front would be much appreciated)

* A new movie I am very much looking forward to in the theatres.  (Why can't it be December 16 already????)

* A family that's here for me, including a mother-in-law despite him.

* An amazing group of friends, particularly three in specific, who have kept me sane this year, and without whom I doubt I would have made it through this year. <3

Just Cause...

It fits WAY too well...

Explanation first.  When I decided to take on a younger Rab, I decided to go with someone who had younger options for photos, though I kept Stuart Townsend as my Older (late twenties to early forties) Rab.  I ended up going with Jonathan Rhys Meyers because he smirks so perfectly, and he's been doing movies for a good while now so there are some lovely younger shots of him, and some lovely smut of him as well. ;)

When [info]wolfish_cat picked up Rodolphus Lestrange in the first game we played them in, the previous player had been using Colin Farrel for him, so she kept using him, but after a while, we agreed that Viggo Mortensen worked better for him, though when we played them younger, she kept Colin for his younger self.

We've played with a number of different Death Eaters over the years, a Lucius or two, a Rookwood, a couple of different Severuses, even an Evan or two.  We also ended up creating one of our own, mostly out of whole cloth and one of the "extra" names we had--Thorne Wilkes (Pansy's Uncle, though we've also played him as her younger brother).  Thorne's PB is Hans Matheson, a little something to keep in mind.

So I got to chatting with [info]snapesgirl today about JRM and how pretty he and Henry Cavill are in the Tudors (I have a feeling some of you will guess where this is going...), and she admitted that she sees Henry as her version of the younger Ro.  I couldn't help but agree.  In rl, he and JRM are actually the reverse ages of Rab and Ro, but...it fits.

So I asked [info]wolfish_cat about it tonight (well, this morning for her, and I guess it is even morning for me right now...if not dawn yet), and we agreed--it's just too good not to use him.  So Colin is going by the wayside.

And as we were looking around for pictures of the boys together in the Tudors, we came across this little picture:

Isn't it perfect? :D

Photospam: Mah Bichez

I've got a group of characters whom I adore that all fit into a certain mold but which still have a great deal of variation in between, and since female characters never get enough love, I felt the need to share them today, because seeing a photo of one of them just made me grin, almost manically.

I call them "mah bichez" affectionately, of course.  Every single one of them has a dark edge to them, and most are the "bad guys" in their universe, or at least one.

Bad Girls behind the cut )

Of course, those are just the ones who came to mind today, and definitely the ones at the top of my list.  Who would you add?

You're Sarah Jane Smith!

The intrepid girl reporter, you invented spunky. You never rest in your relentless pursuit of what The People (and you) Want to Know, and have a profound sense of justice. You are cheerfully incapable of following orders, and have a very individualistic sense of style--much like the Doctor himself. It's no wonder you two get on so well, even if his absentmindedness makes him a bit of a handful sometimes.

Perhaps your definition is different than mine...

So, here in the states, we've got this series of commercials for the corn industry giving corn sweetener a better name. The basic premise goes something like this:

"Ew, why are you eating that? It has corn sweetener in it!"
"Yeah, so?"
"Uuuuh..."
"See? It's good for you. In moderation."

Okay, now, putting aside the fact that this is a way for corn growers to make more money off their excess corn rather than diversifying their crops, which would be better for their land anyway, there is no way to have it in moderation--not when it's in almost anything that has sweetener in it...

I really have a problem with how the FDA "protects" us. Instead of having food additives proven good for human consumption first, their rule seems to be more along the lines of "If it hasn't proven to be bad for you, it must be fine to use." How many food products have proven to be bad for us in the past few years? Between trans-fats and corn sweeteners, you couldn't buy a pre-made product that didn't have at least one or the other.

On the good end, we've also been getting a new commercial for a butter substitute that mentions Denmark's trans-fat ban, so maybe we're getting somewhere?

So, last night I finished the final episode of QAF, and all I can say?

Where's the fic?  I'm ready.  I need more.  If you're out there and read/write QAF fic, particularly B/J fic, I'd love to look at it.  (I'm looking at you, [info]annasuede.)  Smut, love, angst, futurefic, whatever you've got.  Please?
