Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

1. What fandoms are you into watching/reading right now?

CASTLE, OMG! Can Castle and Beckett just please to be doing it already? Geez.

The Hollows - sort of, kind of. I don't know. There's something about Rachel that keeps me coming back to the books even when they're horrible. Kind of like Ivy to Rachel. But i'll get into that more with the next question. 

Grey's Anatomy - just because. It's a comfortable habit. I've watched since the beginning and Callie and Arizona, while are nothing necessarily to write home about, are hot and do not make me wanna cry or bang my head against a wall. 

Alphas - It's a new-ish Sci-fi show. So far my favorite character is the autistic kid who sees computer signals. Which, btw, awesome super power. I'd love to be able to jack into the internet with just my head. There's even some slight femslash potential. 

And last but not least, Venice. Hot actressess, the gay is front and center, and the soapy twists and turns are fun. I want the pay off, damn it and this brings it. There's also kick ass dramatic "oh-no-she-didn't" storylines as a bonus. Did I mention the hot lady sexy times? Because there are lots of those. 

2. Can Kim Harrison ever make me want to read the Hallows again? 

Oh god. Did you read Pale Demon? I mean it kind of sucked on the Rachel/Ivy front. Or was not the awesomeness of A Fistful of Charms, but it did have Rachel talking about not acting like an idiot and actually following through on that. Granted the compromise was Trent character assassination and making him act like an idiot, but apparently we, the reader, cannot have everything. I'm holding out for a happy Rachel/Ivy ending in the last sentence of the last paragraph of the last book. That will not be enough for most fans. Maybe if it was the whole last book? I don't know. She's done a lot to alienate her fans by this point. I guess something about Rachel's repeated idiocy just appeals to me. I find it amusing? I don't know. If I had to deal with her personally, it would not be with Ivy like results that's for sure. So I guess I'd say if there was anything that KH could do to win you back, it would probably be to let the characters return to acting how they were originally written, not they way they were written after their behavior freaked her out and made her run screaming back for the straight and narrow. 

That's why I'm hoping with her last book, and maybe financial constraints not as constrainty as in the middle of the series she'll give us Ravy. I hope. 

3. What are you doing for school/work these days? 

School. Mostly school. I was one very crammed semester short of finishing my A.A. so I'm going for it full tilt. Some days with more success than others. But I'll be done and that's progress. Work is the same old, same old. Winter isn't our busiest season, but we're actually building in the house so that's adding another special layer of crazy to things at the moment. What I would give for a sunny day and a quite space right now. 

4. hottest actresses on TV in no particular order

I'm cheating and going with some web series actresses. 

Crystal Chappell
Nadia Bjorlin
Jessica Leccia
Cote de Pablo
Eve Myles
Stana Katic
Oh! Oh! Sara Ramirez is smokin' hot! 
Yvonne Strahovski. I'd give at least my left hand to see her guest star on Castle as a fling Beckett had in college. Good. Fucking. God. 
And last but not least Jennifer Esposito and KaDee Strickland. I don't even watch Private Practice but I'm pretty sure it's the accent. And the kick as attitude. Hot.

5. Goals for writing? 

I want to write a novel. That sounds so cheesy right? Everyone says that. And I'm still kind of in that weird limbo stage. I don't really have a plot that is demanding me to write it yet. I kind of need that. There are a few fan fic things that I have in progress and want to write but nothing major. I've been getting the itch to write again lately, but I haven't had anything scream that it must be written. Which is probably good with the whole school consuming most of my waking hours thing I have going on right now. 

6. One thing on your "I wants" list?

An unlimited amount of money to spend on amazon.com so I could indulge my fancy for all-right-ish lesbian novels. Oh and I want The Grove webseries to start filming already. 

Edit - Apologies for the length. Does anyone need a cut? 
So someone on my flist linked to this post that should remove those options from your comment box, so like me if you're not down with the whole Real Life/Fandom Life co-mingling thing, you might want to check this out

It was so simple a fix, even I could do it. :D 

Edit - Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] shadadukal for the tip. :D 

Edit, the second - Someone mentioned elsewhere that this won't stop people who have their journal default already set to crosspost all comments and if this option is enable they won't have a way to uncheck the box and not post it to Facebook. So there's that.

Recently the number of entries on my friends page seems to have spontaneously jumped to ten from twenty. I'd like to send it back up to twenty, but I couldn't find the spot to change it back. Does anyone have a suggestion or know how to do this ridiculously easy thing?  
What the fuck is up with the damn LJ rich text editor? It just fucked up the coding on the three thousand word fic chapter that I'm working on so it's all in one giant paragraph now.

Not. Cool. At. all.

So the month is up. NaNo is a bust.  I wish I'd finished, but at the same time I'm not completely upset about it either.  I think if I hadn't gotten interrupted I might could have pulled it off.  It hasn't put me off at all, and if I'm still writing next year, I'll definitely consider doing it again. :D

Anyway, the point of this post isn't actually NaNo.  It was more that I picked this icon as my default for NaNo and now it's over and I'm not sure which one I want for my new default.  

Flist-y thoughts?

Woot!  So I finally got a banner for my LJ. Yay!  I knew the minute I saw that scene in Judgement Day that I really wanted that picture of Ziva for a banner. Yes, I am a shallow, shallow person.  But damn it, Cote de Pablo is freaking gorgeous!  Anyway, I finally found some really great caps of that scene, courtesy of [profile] miseradreamer so I whipped up a very basic banner last night.  It's nothing special and I know a lot of people who could do a much better job of it, but I'm happy so who cares, right?

I did hate that I had to change my layout to be able to use the banner, but alas I'm one broke-ass girl and I can't afford the paid account.  3 column is the layout that I like the better of the two that the Plus account has to offer with a banner.  That said - I freaking hate the blurb box, I miss being able to see all of my tags like I could with my last layout and I wish I could figure out how to swap the ads from the right side of the page to the left.  Can anyone help me out with the ads? I swear I used to know how to do that.

I also updated my profile finally.  It only took me, you know, two years or more to get around to that so, go me. Heh.

Also it doesn't want me to participate in IDF, apparently.  Because each time I go to save the next part of the fic I'm writing for IDF (Cutting it late? Me? Never. Perish the thought!) my internet dies and the part I've re-written four times already gets lost in the endless void of nothingness. 

So, if I don't get fic written? Totally my ISP's fault.  *nods*

So...I saw this icon today, and I really liked it.  I wasn't really planning to replace my default icon, but I just kinda did spur of the moment.  Now I'm not so sure.  I'm really used to my old icon, plus it feels a bit more...generic...than this one. I post at a lot of other communities than NCIS based ones, and this one is very fandom specific rather than just general actress-y. [Poll #1181024][Poll #1181024]

What does it say about me that the LJ advertisement bot or whatever thinks that my journal would be a good place to advertise *NSYNC ringtones?

I think I'm insulted, LJ.  Or at least disappointed in what you think are my tastes.  How could you?!?!

For background on this strike and why it is being held, please read the following posts:

To find out exactly when the strike begins and ends, depending on where you are located, please see this:

What's this about?

* It's about free and ad-free LiveJournal accounts being abolished for new members, ignoring the advice from the newly-formed Advisory Board.
* It's about LJ staff trying to sneak this decision in under the radar, and when people found out, telling the users it was done 'to make the signup process less confusing'.
* It's about LJ staff failing to apologize for trying to hide the facts from view and for lying about the actual reasons for their actions.
* And finally, it's about the latest decision to hide certain user interests from the list of Most Popular Interests, some of them being fanfiction, bisexuality, sex and depression. This decision was not announced or explained in any way. Users found out for themselves.

-Taken from the journal of [profile] m03m

On a personal note I'll be joining this strike.  Granted, it'll suck going a day without LJ.  I think wha I'll hate the most is missing making my daily ficlet post at P&P.  I do hate going back on a commitment and I was so determined not to mess that up but this strike thing...  Well, at least I'll be updating on fanfiction.net still like every other day this month.

I supported Wisegate, which I'm sure no one on my flist probably even knows about, but it's supporting the thing that matters.  I'm not usually one to protest a cause but I am going to do this.  I think that they're decision about hiding certain interests is crap.  I love LJ because the format allows me to have all of my fic in one place.  I realize that fic is illegal and that we're allowed to do it only by the grace of the blind eye, but don't change that now. It's been working out great for you so far. 


So a few people have friended me lately that I don't really know, and I haven't added ya'll back.  Hi.  Thanks for friending me.  That was cool of you.  I'm assuming you're here for the fic, because there's not much else of interest in my LJ, and that's great.  I really appreciate that anyone would be interested enough to friend me.

I'm gonna admit though, that I'm a leery re-friend-er.  This is because I'm paranoid.  I've been around the internet for, oh, about nine years now.  I've spent the bulk of that time on some pretty great message boards.  But in that time I've also run into some not very nice people who really don't like me and my friends.  Also the internet can be a scary place.  Look no further than the kid who committed suicide because of myspace bullying or a dozen other incidents. 

Now I'm not saying anyone who's friended me is a scary psycho.  Ya'll all seem to be pretty nice.  But in general, if someone friends me that I don't know from else where, I'm not gonna friend them back.  If you wanna get to know me, comment in my LJ a few times, and let me know you're friending me, odds are I'll friend you back. 

So, I just figured it was time to say something about all that.

So I get these nifty little emails from LJ every month telling me about all the cool new features I can have if I shell out money for a paid account...which I don't, so I can't.

There's nothing in particular that I really care about having in these little updates so my lack of a paid account doesn't bother.  But this month I got told that LJ has now added private messages. 

My first was response was along the lines of - "Okay, cool."  Because I seriously hate dry-emailing someone if I have a question, or wanna tell them something that's OT or something like that.  It just...I dunno.  I'm weird about emailing someone if they haven't given me their email addresses personally. 

My second thought was - "Oh, hell, LJ has private messages now."  Because seriously, I've been an admin on a message board for close to three years now.  Some days I'd think it was too soon if I ever saw another pm again.  Because...seriously annoying when some idget starts spamming your inbox for attention, or whining about some other user, or how they want you to come read their awful arse fic. I come to LJ to get away from that crap. 

*sigh*  So, I'll just shut up now and get back to being cool with LJ having private messages now.  Also, I'm constantly amused by the fact that the abbreviation for more than one private message is pms.

In other LJ related news, I've almost gotten sick of my LJ layout and colors so I'm searching around for another one. So far...nada.  I'm also trying to decide if I wanna go with one of the two layouts that'll allow me to put up a banner of my choosing and force me to find a color scheme that I like or if I actually wanna go to all that trouble.  And if I do want to go to all that trouble, what do I want to make the banner of...so many options...
Um...so, I've been playing with making a banner for my LJ.  I made the banner and with a little bit of help from syehsreh and coding for beginners I even managed to put the banner up on my LJ.  Go me.  Except now, it looks kinda like this.  Which is bad because I want to show off the banner not have my posts on top of it. *sigh*

Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this?  Is there a way to fix this with a basic or plus account?

The internet never ceases to amaze me for a variety of reasons.

However, this just totally blew my mind for sheer absurdity.  A shipper war in friggin' pig latin!  WTF!  And it's totally random too.

So...I'm cheap. I upgraded my LJ to a Sponsored Account, meaning ads. You won't see 'em if you have a paid account, but you will otherwise.

I like a few of the features that the sponsored account offers, but I don't know how important that is to me at the moment. At the same time, I haven't decided if the features are worth having the ads on there.

So...feedback's appreciated. I know no one likes ads, but are they really horrible?

Well, I'm still getting used to this whole Journal thingie, but it's cool. I like the possibilities.

Anyway, I'm not sure how much stuff I'll post about life, etc., but I probably will use it as a place to post my fan fiction and fan art.

I write fan fiction for a lot of different fandoms and I've currently written over 30 fics in seven different fandoms. My reading tastes are even more diverse.

My current reading interest as far as fan fiction is concerned -

Ziva/Abby NCIS fan fiction

Jaina/Jag Star Wars fan fiction

My current fan fiction to-be-written list -

A Jaina/Zekk mush fic for my friend Jaya

A Jaina/Jag mush fic to counteract all of the angst and anger that I've been writing lately. I'm thinking of writing it for the Jaina/Jag March Challenge

My Jaina/Jag WIP called New Beginnings, and the fic that will most probably be it's sequel. 

A four or so part NCIS fic, that I've been working on the most and a tentative sequel to a Farscape fic that I wrote.

I've also been working on some new NCIS icons, Farscape art, etc.  I might post some when I get it finished.
