Hey you guys. I've been silent for a while, but that's just because I haven't felt like posting. Stuff has happened, but not enough for me to manage to strength to post about it. I'm fine, btw. Just my family has been wrecked by a stomach virus, so I've basically not eaten for a week. And just when the nausea let go some what I get this horrible cough and my body is aching! Thank god, I've finished all my Christmas shopping! Cause I can't lift a finger right now.

Tomorrow I'm going to watch the ballet the Nutcracker. I haven't seen it since I was ten or something, and I'm hoping I won't be too sick to enjoy it.

I sent out my Christmas letters on Friday and I hope they will all reach you in time for Christmas. I know I was a bit late this year, but I really hope the post will come through.

I celebrated my birthday on Saturday. It was a absolute blast and I haven't laughed that much in ages. There was a lot of vodka and playing of "I never", and I can safely say that I've never been that hung over in my LIFE! (Which really doesn't say much, cause I've never really been hung over before.) The family party on Sunday was horrible. Horrible! I tell you!

So yeah, that's my life right now. I'm twenty and happy, and so very sick. Thank you to everybody who wished me a happy birthday, you are all lovely! &hearts

Awesome presents I got for my birthday )

On a more personal note: I'm spending way too much time on Facebook and in the last month I've sent over a hundred texts. That's... so not normal. I blame my big giant crush. The logical part of my brain is telling my how ridiculous and stupid I'm acting, but the other part is giggling and saying "But he might show up any minute! And we want to talk to him!" I'm an idiot.

Fandom wise:

I'm so bitter that I have to avoid all Narnia talk. The movie doesn't come out until December 25th here. Yeah, what kind of date is that, anyway?? Who goes to the movies on the first day of Christmas? But on second or third day I'm dragging my family to go watch it.

The few things I've heard isn't all that good, but I'm have an open mind, and I care more about the developing of the characters than I do the story or plot. So really, I don't care if they've changed the whole story as long as Edmund is Edmund and Lucy is Lucy and Eustace is awesome.

People seems to be having fun in the 3 sentence ficathon, which is great! It didn't turn out to be as fun as I'd expected it to be for me, but who cares about that. I'm just not feeling the writing vibes lately. Which is a shame cause I really want to write! But I can't.

I'm also blissfully high on cough syrup right now. I've finally stopped coughing!

Interest meme.

Answer this post and I'll give you seven of your interest that you can talk about.

[ profile] lizzie_marie_23 gave me these:

See I should probably actually remove this from my interest list... See, I've tried to like coffee, I really wanted to like it, but unless it has chocolate and whipped cream and an unhealthy amount of sugar in it I don't. (Seriously, it can almost not be called coffee when I'm done with it. More like hot chocolate with coffee flavour.) Iced Coffee on the other hand is yummy.

King Edmund the Just
Edmund Pevensie! Now if you have spent any amount of time on my journal you must surely know how much I love this character. He is possibly my favourite fictional character of all time and I just love him. Whenever I start writing a Narnia fic he is my default pov. Whenever I make up an original character I always steal some of his characteristics. And in my head he smokes. Sorry, yeah, I know it's a nasty habit. In RL I'm the most vocal anti nicotine person you'll ever meet. Just ask my BFF. She had a period where she smoked during parties and I didn't even need to say anything, she could just see that I was going to complain about it by my facial expression. And she'd be all "DON'T SAY IT!" So yeah, Edmund Pevensie post Narnia is a smoker. And I can't help it if I find that kind of hot.

If it was a sport, I would be a champion! Sleeping is possibly my favourite thing to do in the world. (Don't want to know what that says about me.) I love to sleep. I love to dream. My dreams are the most awesome thing ever and the best thing about it is that I mostly remember them too.

Frankie Boyle
I won't deny it, I have a serious comedy fangirl crush on this man. He is the funniest man ever and I love him so fucking much. It's a combination of how he genuinely doesn't give a shit, his awesome accent, his crazy floral shirts and snazzy suits, and his smirk. I can't help it, I think he is sexy. See gif:

And you know the fact that he is too fucking funny for words. I think the fact that I have three icons dedicated to this man shows somewhat my feelings on this topic?

To top this off, here have a Youtube video to show you how great and funny he is:


I sometimes draw. If you want to see the things I posted to my journal just click my fanart tag. I'm not very good, but when I was sick it was very therapeutic. I unfortunately don't draw much any more. Maybe I'll do some more soon...

Who wouldn't want the most awesome spaceship/time-travel machine in the history of forever? She belongs to the Doctor. 'Nuff said.

My only slash pairing in the history of forever. And when I went to write fic about them I turned Kirk into a girl. That's how much of a slash virgin I am. But I just came out of the movie going... THEY ARE SO IN LOVE! I was so expecting seeing the sparks between Kirk and Spock cause that what fandom history taught me. But then I saw the movie and they are bff's who love each other! Also, Karl Urban is possibly one of he hottest men ever. See picspam posted last summer.

Oh, I do hate being sick. Especially this kind of sick. Sore throat, coughing and constantly freezing. It doesn't help that it's -17 Celsius outside. Yesterday, our upstairs toilet froze and it wouldn't flush!

I've been tucked under my down duvet all week. Thank god, my duvet is so warm or else I would have been an icicle all week. So when I haven't been sleeping I have been re-watching season 5 of Gilmore Girls and reading Rory/Logan fanfiction, and downloading music from [ profile] fileshare_free. I got the entire Glee soundtrack! That's some awesome music.

Here's the three sentence fic I wrote right before new years and forgot to post to my journal before 2010:

Under the cut there's 5 Narnia fics where 4 is genderfuck and 1 Anastasia fic )

Because I really have a thing for genderbend my favorite characters, I have now tried my hand at all male Pevensies. There's eight three sentence fics under the cut.

One of the (many) great things about the Three Sentence Fic-a-thon is that you get to write things you never dreamed you'd write. Like girl!Edmund, who, by the joint writings of me and [ profile] grim_lupine (mostly her), has turned into a very dynamic character, who I love with all my heart. Here's the four fics I've written so far. (If you want to read all the ones Nikki have written go here)

Edmund as a girl kicks ass! )

If we are going to talk about the bad things about Three Sentence Fic-a-thon, then that's totally the fact that it's shooting my grammar to hell. I have to keep reminding myself that I am allowed to used periods when writing other things.

Next up: All male!Pevensies!!
caramelsilver: (Lewis: tired)
I have decided to name my MacBook Edgar, say hello.

Birthdays are brilliant, I got seven books from my friends and ca. 500 kr from my aunts and uncles. I'm going to go buy myself a sweater for those money.

The three sentence fic-a-thon is still going strong and here's the ones I've written this week:

Under the cut there's 6 Narnia, where one is crossed over with Harry Potter. )

Edited to add another that I had forgotten. Another Narnia one.
caramelsilver: (Anastasia: I'd kick her)
So, I'm turning 19 in two days. I'm not too old to feel giddy in anticipation of my birthday, am I? And I'm REALLY looking forward to getting my MacBook!

Hopefully I'll get some money for my bday too, so I can buy my parents some Christmas presents, because I'm really short on cash. I'm going to start looking for a job in January. (I need to start saving money for London June 2010!)

You should totally go and read [ profile] be_themoon's awesome Doctor Who/Narnia fic: Whose Other Side Is Salvation

Some awesome three sentence fics you need to read:

[ profile] turkeyish wrote Chronicles of Narnia, Edmund, England and cigarettes.

[ profile] grim_lupine wrote Anastasia, Dmitri, the best con artist in town

[ profile] almostinstinct wrote Gossip Girl, Chuck/Serena, ties and alchohol.

And [ profile] be_themoon wrote (absolutely awesome): (Which inspired me to write a 500 long ficlet, which I'll post later this week, hopefully.) Anastasia, Anya/Dimitri, honour among thieves.
caramelsilver: (Anastasia: Anya)
The Three Sentence Fic-a-Thon is still going strong. If you haven't joined yet, I strongly urge you to. It's very low commitment, you can leave a prompt and you don't even have to fill another (though that would be nice.)

Here's the ones I've filled so far. I hope there will come more prompts with fandoms I actually know. It's great that there's such a diversity, but I know nothing of anime so I can't fill any of those prompts.

This got a little long so I cut it. Under the cut there's 3 Narnia, 1 Doctor Who, 1 Charmed, and 1 Supernatural. )

If you want to see what prompts I've posted that hasn't been filled yet, go here.
caramelsilver: (Narnia: Pevensies)
Narnia fandom really has two fandoms. If you don’t believe me, then you are not in the Narnia fandom. It took me awhile to understand this and it took me even a longer time to get to terms with this. As a reader I think it’s great, but as a writer it makes me very frustrated because I don’t know which camp I’m in. Let me explain:

There is the original fandom on, the fandom that write fics based on the books and their fics are nice and pretty sugary. With straight off battles and the good people are good and the bad people are bad, and there are not many grey-zones. There’s no… meta in their fics. Here, Peter is a nice guy, and Lucy has never been drunk in her life. You get my drift.

Then there is the fandom that sprung up after the movies came out, on LJ. They talk and interpret and are not satisfied with the Narnia C.S Lewis wrote about. They talk politics, economy, law and how it really would be to rule a country. Their fics are magnificent.

Why is this relevant? Because I have a confession to make: I am really struggling with my Narnia fics. I don’t know which part I’m part of anymore. One part of me wants to keep writing fluffy pieces because I don’t want to offend my old Narnia friends and my beta, and the other part just want to say screw it and stop posting my stuff on ffnet. Because I really feel that my recent fics (An Art to It and For Duty’s Sake) really clash with what they want over at ffnet.

And what’s the main thing that’s holding me back is my beta. She’s brilliant! I admire and fangirl her so much (you have no idea how happy I was when she offered to beta for me!) but I feel that my view of the characters has changed so much from her view of the characters. (I blame [ profile] bedlamsbard ) I’m actually really considering changing beta because it’s really cramping my writing and I feel so horrible!

So what I’m working up to say is this: I have been writing this fic for awhile now (it was supposed to be for the [ profile] femgenficathon)

(and it’s really, really not going to fit well over at ffnet, and I’m not sure if my beta is going to like it and I don’t want her to have to beta this bigass fic that she essentially don’t like, so… )

But the thing is that I’m stuck! And I’ve also lost the second chapter when my comp. died. And… would any of you like to just read it and give me some reactionary comments? Not a fullblown beta, don’t need that just yet, I just need to know that what people think and maybe make some comments on if you think the characters are acting like they should and stuff?

Okay this was rambly and confusing. But it was nice to get that off my chest at least.

Also, read my semi-meta on why I don’t like Peter/Susan.
caramelsilver: (Narnia: P4)
Some of you (and when I say some of you I guess I only mean [ profile] be_themoon) might remember a while back when I said I'd written down why I didn't like the Peter/Susan ship, but was unsure of posting it cause I didn't want to offend anybody. Well, it's a few months later and I've continued to think about it and I now completely know the reason why I don't like that ship (AKA: I can explain it in a way that makes sense!)

Surprisingly it has nothing to do with the incest (which should worry me a bit more). It has to do with group dynamic. The Pevensies are four siblings. Two boys and two girls. And in every fic I read and write this is never forgotten,- even though I might focus a bit more on the boys,- the relationship between the four of them is never forgotten or overlooked. What I feel happens in Peter/Susan fics is that the two others are forgotten and that makes me very uncomfortable.

But of course, I'm a hypocrite because I don't mind this as much when it's Susan and Lucy who's forgotten when I read Peter and Edmund brotherfic. And maybe this is because I'm truly cemented in this part of fandom and maybe my dislike of the P/S ship is simply that there's so many of my favorite people on LJ who likes this ship and I kind of feel left out?

I was really happy when I found out that it wasn't the incest that squicked me, but the fact that pairing off two characters in a set of four is just all wrong to me. Because to me, the Pevensies is a unit that works together and when you disrupt that it becomes all wrong to me. (Which is also why fics post-Narnia and the Problem of Susan is so interesting because without Susan they are wrong.)

In fandoms like Supernatural I don't mind the incest at all, because Sam and Dean have always been just the two of them. (If that makes sense?)

On a side note, it might also be that I just don't see them as characters hooking up either. Like, had they not been siblings I don't think I would ship it, because I see no spark and there needs to be sparks.

God, I hope this was clear and not offensive.

Please discuss in the comments. Tell me why you like it, or why you don't. I'm really interested, since I'll freely admit that I know next to nothing about the ship, except a few fics and people talking about it on my flist. Educate me! But don't be rude.

Today on [ profile] comment_fic the theme is three sentence fic. Here's what I wrote:

Gilmore Girls, Rory & Lorelai, Rory starting nursery:

She looked back at her daughter, just before the gate closed and couldn't help but cry a little. It was hard to leave Rory alone among people she didn't know, but it had to be done. She was old enough now, and Lorelai had to work to support them both.

Chronicles of Narnia, Lucy, growing up:

It took her a while, but she finally discovered that there was a freedom in being a child again. She was free to do whatever she wanted, because nothing was expected of her. She realised that she was free to have a childhood, something she had not been free to have the first time around.

Veronica Mars, Weevil, a hundred dollar bill:

The bill was clean and crisp as he followed it as the hand holding it moved it from side to side alluringly in front of his face. Weevil licked his lips and and made a move to take the hundred dollar bill; but the hand yanked it away.

"So what do you say, wanna do me a solid?" the girl asked and he nodded as he grabbed the money.

Doctor Who, Jenny, running

It was the strongest impulse in her body, to run, to never stand still. No matter where she was, after awhile, the need to leave made her antsy and in the end she always obliged the urge. The funny thing was that she was never sure of what she was running from.
caramelsilver: (Misc: sponge bob)
I'm sick again. I'm having a horrible stomach ache and I'm so nauseous I can barely eat. (Today I've eaten one piece of sliced bread and a banana. I tried to eat soup for lunch but my stomach refused to eat it. I managed a little ice cream.)

The last week I've read the first six books in the Sookie Stackhouse series. I find them very enjoyable. (Much, much better than Twilight.)Have any of you read them? (I ship Sookie/Eric. That has nothing to do with him being tall blond Scandinavian. Nothing!)

I've written a small, tiny meta on why I don't really like Peter/Susan, but I'm not sure if I should post it. It might offend people and I would hate for that to happen.

caramelsilver: (Narnia: Lucy PC)
I've finished all my end of year test, and basically have a week of nothing, before I'll know if I have to have a oral exam too.

I've finished writing the first part of my femgen fic. First part, as in, it could be longer, but it ends semi nicely where I am now, too.

I've decided to name the country in the north Eduran. What do we think? Edur means snow in basque.
