The Wishlist Meme/Rules:
Make a post (public, friends locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 12 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love an icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for __ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

* If you wish for real life things (not stories or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
* Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.
*Surf around your friends list (or friends’ friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list.

And now here's the important part:
*If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use — or even know where you could get someone's dream pure bred Basset Hound for free — do it.
* You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out; it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf—to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not—it's your call.
* There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish and it might come true. Give and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

I have too much shit on my flist. And by that I don't mean you guys, you are all amazing- I mean all the comms that I don't really read any more. My time has become more limited and I spend way too much time trying to catch up on my flist. I think I'll have to go and remove some of the more boring communities.

Today, in English Lit. class our homework is to write a short-story about our mother. I'm beside myself with glee. I LOVE THIS CLASS SO MUCH!

[ profile] be_themoon said: "please somebody stop me I might be going crazy. I want so badly for there to be a community where people can link to all the TV show memes done and write fic about each other's shows and do meta-spams and be fannish at each other and plot out seasons and AU's and ahksldghlsk. HELP."

And I'm so there with her! I want fic of all the fake shows I've seen. I'm writing fic for my own fake show. I even have ideas for AU's! And crossovers! I WANT CROSSOVERS!

Go check out these fake tv shows:

[ profile] be_themoon's Cabin Fever A generation ship called The Rapture to Mars imaginary far-away planet of choice, and it's crew and 144,000 cryogenically frozen passengers. Plus a stowaway. (there isn't actually a stowaway, technically. I mean, a little bit. but she's not actually a stowaway. it's confusing!)

and Wastelands
A journey story across a post-apocalyptic landscape.

[ profile] sgrio's A post-apocalyptic society under martial law and it's underground revolution.

[ profile] lassiterfics's Four siblings travel to and rule a magical kingdom a la Narnia using Earth mythology of your choice.

Does anyone want to do a erasure swap with me? I think I need some stress relief in the form of poetry and erasuring was so much fun.

Meme time!

caramelsilver: (Narnia: Peter and Lucy)
Meme taken from [ profile] lizzie_marie_23 and [ profile] grim_lupine

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. (If you absolutely can't write, maybe find a creative alternative?)

I'll write Narnia (any genderbend except Peter, cause Peter just needs to be a boy to me.), Glee (Puck/Rachel), Harry Potter (Draco/Ginny) Charmed (Chris and Wyatt) and Anastasia. Or anything else you might think I'd write.

An inquiry: Who is up for a three sentence fic-a-thon? It was one of the themes on [ profile] comment_fic this week and it was so incredibly fun. And if anyone else is up for it, I'll totally host it.

The premise is that someone posts a prompt (one prompt per comment) and you answer it with a three sentence fic. It's so much fun and you'll end up writing for fandoms you've never tried before and it gets the creative juices flowing.

So what say ye? Are you up for it? Will you pimp it to your flist? (PLEASE SAY YES!)

If you're game, I'll make a post about it as fast as I can. (I really want to do this. It seems like those are the only thing I'm capable of writing these days.)

ETA: I'll even make a banner. You don't know it yet, but I'm real shit at making banners=)

ETA2: Actually, no, I will NOT make a banner because I really am shit at it. But if anyone else would like to, then please do!

Meme time!

1. Comment and I'll say something I like about you, plus recommend a book or movie I think you'd be interested in.

2. The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Last night I was having trouble sleeping and started to wonder how all of you discovered fanfiction. And that made me think of how I did:

I found it through Gilmore Girls. Yes, you read that right. Gilmore Girls! It was 2005 and I was watching season 5 of Gilmore Girls on tv. (This is also my favorite season and I own in on dvd.) I was rapidly shipping Rory/Logan and found myself frustrated each time an episode was over and that I didn't get more. And since I live in Norway,  I knew that the episodes had already been aired in the US, so I went online to spoil myself and reassure myself that my ship was going to sail. (It did.) Then, on one fansite they had a link to a Gilmore Girls fanfiction site. And I was like, WHAT IS THIS? And I tentatively read a fic or two, and was kinda hooked. I read every R/L fic on that site and after wards went looking for more. That was when I found

But still for over a year all I read was Gilmore Girls fic. I knew that Harry Potter fic existed, but I refused to read it. A Harry Potter story not written by J.K Rowling? Not on my life would I read that. Then, on an episode of Pottercast, Melissa Anelli mentioned that she sometimes liked to read Draco/Ginny fic, and I was like... THAT MIGHT BE RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS! The first time I entered the Harry Potter section on ffnet, I was in Thailand. (I'm not shitting you! I paid for internet because I was going bonkers without checking my inbox.) I found a Draco/Ginny fic (I remember it was an arranged marriage fic and it's still on my favorites page even though I do not have the balls to read it again- it's probably crap.) and I never looked back. Still, the only HP fic I read is almost only D/G.

I was sold. It was a great new world, and I'm never leaving. It made me write. I never thought I liked to write until I discovered fanfiction. Now it's one of my greatest pleasures.

So I ask you, lovely flist. How did you find fanfiction?

caramelsilver: (Celebrity: Needs more Karl Urban)

My charger went dead on me, and it's most definitively broken, my tech-savvy brother says.  I am having a quiet freak out (capslocking really loudly in my head!) My whole life is on that computer! I can't go an entire summer without my baby! But, before I despair too much, there is still the hope that my mum will get a spare charger from her work (since that is where we got the computer from in the  first place.) And since its an old work computer from my mum's work, I'm pretty sure it'll be hard to find a new charger if my mum can't find a spare one. GAAAAH!

And now I'll miss the party post over at [ profile] ontd_startrek  tonight! And I was all set, planning on staying up late and everything! Oh well. I'll have to look it over tomorrow then and steal all the pretty gifs. To cheer me up I'm gonna use my pretty Karl Urban icon.

I need cheering up, ladies! Do you have some awesome pictures, links, vids, whatever to share with me?

I'm embarrassed to say that I kinda freaked out when I opened my inbox and I didn't have any new mail. No fics updates, none of the topics I watch on FIAF were updated and no mail from my RL friends. Le sigh. Sad isn't it, that my life really do revolve around the internet? If it weren't for my F-list I would be bored out of my mind.
caramelsilver: (bitch please)
I'm feeling horribly, for many stupid things really:

1) I have problems sleeping at night. That do not help on my mood. If I don't sleep the whole night through then I'm sure to sleep half the day away. Not cool.

2) My computer is f**** again. I have to borrow my brother's pc. Even though his is better and newer, I really don't like it. It has so many weird buttons and stuff I don't understand. I want my computer back.

3) I can't get in on FIA or the forums! So I'm sitting here in the middle of the night totally bored.

4) I'm a bad friend. I don't comment on my f-list anymore, and I'm sorry!

I'm especially sorry to [ profile] felis_felicis, she comments on all my post, and I almost never comment on hers. Well I have an apology: You see, every time I read your posts I always see that you already have like 18 comments and to be honest that freaks me out a little bit. Big crowds, not fan. So I'm really sorry!! But I always read all of your post.

I read all of my f-list, I just usually don't have anything to say.
