[Note re: broken graphic links 07/21/13]
PLEASE NOTE: For some reason, many many older posts of mine now have broken links instead of images. I will be working through all my previous posts verrry slowly and fixing them eventually, but if you find a post of mine with broken graphic links that you want to read sooner, drop a comment on it and I'll bump it to the head of the queue for recoding/reuploading the graphics and let you know when it's fixed. Thank you for your patience.
LJ Support is implementing a workaround (YAY! \o/), everything should be okay now, but please do let me know if you find any broken image links and I'll look into them. :-)
Title: I See You Shiver With Anticip....
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Alternate Postings: AO3
Rating/Content: PG13, extensive Rocky Horror references, risqué costumes, bad crime scene protocols, silliness
Warnings: none
Word Count: 1310
Disclaimer: Not my world. Rose-tinted or otherwise.
Notes: Written for watsons_woes' Monthly Prompt for June. The prompt was "Anticipation" and due to my misspent early college years, that word takes me directly to only one thing.... (Also where the title comes from.)

Summary: "No," John said to the gold lamé shorts.

[Three of them]
First discovery: If I have something approximating the ingredients I can make a batch of cookies (well, a batch of cookie, singular, since this batch also amoeba'd like a previous impulse batch did) with no recipe at all in about half an hour.

Second discovery: Trying to get said cookies to 'firm up' from hot oozy goo into a solid of some kind by turning the broiling element up to high is not a good plan, especially when I subsequently turn around, get distracted and forget to set a timer.

Third discovery: The smoke alarm in this apartment doesn't work. At all. No flames, but a LOT of smoke, and not a peep from it. I should probably do something about that.

Allow me to introduce you to the latest video to make me buy a song off iTunes. Covers most of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, (including some quick and spoilery bits from Captain America: Civil War and from the Doctor Strange promo material, so tread lightly spoilerphobes). I consider it to be made of badass and particularly enjoy the linking of lyrics with action.

I've just finished reading the novelization of Star Wars: The Force Awakens by Alan Dean Foster and wanted to post a little review, and also a bit of meta about a character arc I think is likely in future films.

Review and Blithering Meta-SpeculationCollapse )

ANYWAY. That's my scrambled blithering take on the novelization and some meta for The Force Awakens. Only about 6 months after the fact. :-P

I've been watching the DC Legends of Tomorrow series with RL friends on an irregular weekly basis. If anyone is interested in my denial theories about a certain element of the penultimate episode (original air date 5/12/16), I've been bending shanachie_quill's comment threads with them in her intriguing post regarding a certain character arc in the show's first season.

ETA: Link.

I haven't seen many of these series' and am not up to date on watching some others, but my brain got stuck on random while waiting for the laundry and kept mashing together TV Show titles. In case anyone else might find this amusing, I figured I'd post it.

Concept: Take two or more TV Series (or movie, or book...) titles and combine them. Describe the resulting combined series briefly.

TV Series Title MashupsCollapse )
Feel free to post your own below, or turn it into a mashup meme on your own journal/tumblr.

I don't know if anyone's going to read this, but here, have a reaction post anyway.

Pretty much spoiler-free, but putting it under a cut anyway to protect extreme spoilerphobes. Also comparative references to Batman vs SupermanCollapse )

Since the copy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens I got came with a digital copy, I thought I'd see if I could recreate the 3D experience at home.

[It didn"t work so well]

It didn't work so well... actually it didn't work at all, but I had to try.

To celebrate, here's a catchy little Shakespearean Insults song by Hank Green and the Perfect Strangers (from YouTube) called "Undigested Lump".

Title: Road Test
Fandom: Supernatural
Alternate Posting: AO3
Rating/Content: PG, crack, references to Supernatural episodes (5.08, 5.19, 6.15), commercial crossover sort of.
Word Count: 650
Disclaimer: I do not own and did not originate this world and its inherent characters. I also do not own a Jeep Cherokee but I am sure they are fine and versatile vehicles.
Notes: Written for spn_bigpretzel's D.E.W. challenge: Put Sam and Dean into a TV show/movie/advert of your choice. I picked this commercial, which I don't even know if it gets shown in the US, but let's pretend, m'kay? Set at some point after 6.15, at some time when Sam and Dean are back in the Impala and working cases together peaceably.

Summary: Some detours take you further than others.

Title: Rey's Words
Fandom: Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Alternate Postings: AO3
Rating/Content: PG13, canon neglected child backstory, maudlin
Warnings: none
Word Count: 750
Disclaimer: Not my world. Not even my usual world.
Notes: Well, lately when I'm trying to avoid thinking about RL (doing a lot of that lately) and don't have the focus for anything more demanding, I poke around on the Force Awakens Fic Meme (caution, many prompts NSFW), and this 'misfire' prompt got me thinking about Rey's relationship with reading during her early life. So, here's my first Star Wars ficlet (that is, if you don't count the ones I wrote before the internet existed ;-)).

Summary: Rey's relationship with written words and stories, growing up on Jakku.

Apparently, my very old Supernatural Wee!chesters Fanfic Carjacking (also posted on LJ and AO3) has won an award from an intrepid crew of awardsters over on fanfiction.net called the Supernatural Fan Fiction Monthly Awards. Yay!

I think this is pretty dang awesome. Of course, I've always liked acapella music and I'm tipping towards being a little obsessed with the new Star Wars movie, so this is my catnip right here.
