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.

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?

30 Day Movie Meme

05 - Favorite love story in a movie

I'm going to go a little weird here.  There's many love stories in movies that I enjoy, but most, when I start to think about them, start out too abruptly, or end too sadly, or something like that.

So I'm going to go with one that really hits a few buttons for me: Dracula and Mina in Bram Stoker's Dracula (the Coppola movie).  I love the past-life aspect of it, as well as the seduction.  And even that she's there with him at the end.  And this is the role that made me fall madly in love with Gary Oldman.  The hottest man ever to play this role. *nods*

So, Listal just updated to their newest version, and one of the new features is people lists.  I've made a bunch of people lists while the feature was still in Beta mode.

Lost Too Soon - Actors and Actresses who died before 40.
After Elton's Top 100 for 2008
After Ellen's Top 100 for 2008

To Do before 11/1

I have a great idea for NaNo this year, but first I have several stories I have to write, and if any of them aren't mostly finished or completely so by then, then I'm not going to let myself. Because work + NaNo = no other time for anything.

Fic list:
October D_D (H/D, Plugs)
Kit's Birthday
November D_D (Genderplay)
Snapely Holidays

Ceria's Birthday
December D_D

HP Vamp Fic: Guarding Malfoy

So, the HP Vamp reveal is up. And I wrote this for it -

Title: Guarding Malfoy
Author/artist: [info]elfflame
Pairing: Harry/Draco (Draco/Harry?)
Rating: Rish
Warnings: jealousy, angst and the eensiest smidge of blood-play
Disclaimer: The characters are not mine. I make no money. Please don’t sue.
Original request/Bunny:
Pairing(s): Severus Snape/Charlie Weasley (or Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter)
Maximum rating: NC17
Scenario: There's a new vampire in town and everyone's scrambling to become their blood donor and bonded mate. Charlie (or Harry) just wants a chance with the man he's been in love with for what seems like forever.
Cool things: Lots and lots and lots of suitors :D, just a dash of angst if possible
Squicks: scat, felching, wandplay, non con, extreme bdsm, ron/hermione, sirius/remus (should they think about making it into the picture)
Notes: As soon as I saw this, I got this humungous bunny. And then life got in the way. Perhaps someday I will write the full version of this fic, though I rather like it as it is. I don’t generally write Harry-fic. Usually Draco is the one who speaks to me. But this, I just couldn’t resist. Thank you to [info]ceria & [info]kabal42 for the beta help.

It's choice - not chance - that determines your destiny. – Jean Nidetch )

Also, a rec for the piece made from my prompt - Remembered Fire by Oldenuf2nb.  So rich, and so brilliant.  Five chapters of excellent H/D Vamp fic.  Just go read it.

[No Subject]

Just watched a new show, and I have to know...has anyone else out there seen it?  Being Human. Vampire and a Werewolf rent a flat that turns out to be haunted by the ghost of a girl who died there.  Rather cute, and has lots of potential.  I can't wait to see more.

State of the Elf

Soo...  many things.  Again.

* Grandmother moving this weekend.  Didn't actually do anything cause I have no car, and so have no way of transporting her, just realizing that she's much further away from me now.  Moved across the water to Bel-Red Road over in the East side, if you know where that is.

* Job front - Meant to announce this before, but with job stuff and the Cup fic which I've been struggling to do, I haven't had the time.  I am now a real employee at the place I've been working on and off since July.  about two months there, then a couple not, then back in late November, I think it was.  And I've been there ever since.  It's  a bit odd.  I hadn't realized how long it had been since I'd had a "real" job.  I quit my last back in 95 to go back to college.  Just kind of wierd.  But it's good, so far.  We'll see how stressed I get.

* Writing -
Cup fic is done, and in the editing process.  Lots of helpful people, so I'm very excited.  Could well be my best fic ever.  Okay, maybe not, but I'm very fond of the bunny, even now, and saying that after having finished it?  Not usually the case, so I'm feeling good about it.
D_D for this month has been started.  Starring Blaise again, shockingly enough.  Usually Draco doesn't let anyone else go more than a month at a time, but he's shockingly happy and sated these days. ;)
HP Vamp is having their Free Range fest again, and I have several bunnies I'm thinking of claiming.  I just really need to remind myself that I can't.  Maybe one or two at the most, and certainly not until I have at least 1000 words done for D_D.

* Cable guy was here today, and after much hassle with finding a modem that would work, we are connected again.  All I can do is hope that this will be the end of our random cut-offs when we're trying to load pages or chat with folks.

* Have someone new that's kind of been percolating in my head since JKR made the Post-warts family trees: Lorcan Scamander.  I don't know why he specifically is calling to me.  Possibly the geeky name.  He's pretty different from most of my usual muses.  Not sure if anything will come of it, but you never know...

* Posted all my H/D stuff over at Skyhawke now, aside from unpublished.  So there's a ton there, now, and the ratings system seems interesting to me.  I've stuck most of my drabbles in Ship-related "stories," one chapter per drabble, just to keep from having a hundred teensy little stories on my page, but anything over 500 words has its own story.  I'm not so good to sticking to under 500, I've noticed. ;)  So...the question is, what ship should I do next?

* A request: Have been reading chaptered stories at work, but it's getting hard to find things I should have read that aren't long-one shots (rather prohibitive with the amount of time I have to read, so anything over 10,000 words as a one-shot is too much.).  So...  I'd love suggestions.  Particularly H/D, or next-gen, though Regulus seems to be popping up in my mind a lot lately.  I don't suppose there are any chaptered fics about him?

And how is everyone else out there?

That interest meme that's going around...

LJ Interests meme results

  1. chakotay:
    Hot man, great tattoo, and TPTB really screwed the pooch when they didn't let him have the love of his life...
  2. draco/harry fanfics:

    Do I really need to answer this one?
  3. fantasy creatures:
    I love myth in all its forms. And I'm a big critter person, too. Nuff said.
  4. harry potter fan art:
    Enjoyable whether or not you read fan-fics.
  5. magic:
    Cause the world would be a more boring place without it.
  6. panthers:
    My all-time favorite animal. The coolest of the cats. Its roar makes me shiver in a good way
  7. red dwarf:
    A tale of a man, a ship, his cat, android and hologram. And enough vindaloo and lager to kill a thouroghbred. :P
  8. sirius black:
    Because he's got black hair and attitude. But inside, he's the cuddliest puppy you've ever met. :D
  9. suzie plakson:
    Definately one of the underrated actresses of our times. Fabulous as K'Elyar, wonderfully amusing as the female Q, and spectacular in everything she does. Plus, I love her hair.
  10. vampires:

    I think I've already talked about this one ad infinitum lately...

Enter your LJ user name, and 10 interests will be selected from your interest list.

I think I need some more icons.  Anyone know where to find me a Suzie Plakson icon?  Or a panther?

What I did on my Vacation....

Yeah, well, I have to post it, just to get it out of my head, even if no one else is interested.

Cut so people won't slaughter me en masse )

Sims rambling )

Also, we're thinking of making a set of icons for Sims that uses the little phrases on the loading screen.  We still need all the ones for the original Sims 2, and for Uni, but we've got all the ones for Nightlife already.  If anyone wants to contribute their favorites, I'm more than willing to pass on the icon once we have it made... :)

In fact, we had tons of ideas for Icons while I was down there, so you may be seeing a gigantic icon post in the near future... ;D


ETA: Does anyone know if there is a paper doll scans comm out there somewhere?

Memeage gacked from my love, <lj user

Look at your LJ "interests" list. If you have less than 50 interests, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five interests, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five interests, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly what it is about these things that interests you so much.

Name five fannish races [species] you find yourself drawn to, and why you are drawn to them.

1) Elves.  Not really even sure where this one started, to be honest.  Between Tolken, and Elfquest, definately though.  I just love them.  Particularly tall, willowy and noble.

2) Trill.  The idea of how the symbiot has such an extended lifespan, and shares the memories of each of their previous hosts with the current one.  I like the sense of continuity it brings.

3) Vampries.  Again, not sure where this came from, but I was into them before I ever heard of Anne Rice.  I'm just pleased that she wrote the books, because it's meant an excess of information and stories about them.

4) Dragons.  Not the stupid, town-stomping ones, but the highly intelligent, misunderstood creatures that could hold a conversation with a human.  If they felt the inclanation.

5) Pegasai.  Horses with wings.  How can you go wrong?  (plus, it's an inside family joke that I'm a pegasus, and my sister is a unicorn...)

So, I just noticed, reading these, that I seem to like extremely long-lived races....I think that says something about me, doesn't it?
