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? 
In 2012, jaina47 resolves to...
Overcome my secret fear of stargate atlantis.
Keep my springfield clean.
Apply for a new jag.
Tell my family about star wars.
Spend less time on otalia.
Become a better venice.

"It was an accident, Turn it!" That...sounded pretty bad, even to my own ears.

"You tripped and accidentally fell on Skimmer's lips?" Ivy sounded beyond skeptical. She was pissed. And hurt. Damn it back to the Turn! I had just screwed this up again, just when I thought I might finally have a chance at making it right. "I can understand if you don't want to be with me, Rachel. If you don't feel that way or you're scared, but don't lie to me. You owe me more than that."

"It wasn't like that, Ivy," I said weakly.

"Then what was it like?" Ivy demanded.

I considered it and winced. What I had to say wasn't going to sound any better. "I don't care about Skimmer."

"And yet your tongue was down her throat," Ivy countered without missing a beat, her arched brows demanding some kind of explanation.

"Because I don't care about her!" I protested again, stomping my foot. Why couldn't Ivy just understand? It made perfect sense, Turn it!

"Rachel." Ivy pressed the heel of her hand against her forehead, a gesture that I knew meant her head was throbbing, and let out a long suffering sigh. "You're not making sense."

"I am too!"

Ivy let out a pained snort. "You sound like a three year old."

"Stop making fun of me."

"I'm not making fun of you," Ivy snapped. "I'm trying to figure how you accidentally made out with my friend when you've spent the last three years rubbing my nose in the fact that you're straight."

"Because I love you, you idiot!" My exasperated exclamation rendered the room silent. Oh Turn it, why had I said that? I hadn't meant to say. I had wanted to create the big, perfect, romantic moment, give Ivy an experience like she had never had before, and then she had blown it. By walking in on me and Skimmer making out.

"What did you just say?" Ivy asked in a low voice, the grey silk tones of her voice sounding predatory and threatening even as they wrapped around my body like a seductive caress.

"I said I love you," I whispered.

"As a friend," Ivy added, her hands clenching and releasing at her side the only indication of how she was struggling.

"No." I hesitated. That didn't sound right. "Well, yes. But-"

"Rachel?" Ivy waited for me to luck up, her eyes finding hers. "Shut up." And then she kissed me. What she made me feel was indescribable. What the Turn had I been waiting for? Oh, right.

Ivy's lips released mine and she leaned away from me tilting her head. I held my breath, wondering what she was about to say. Okay, so my kissing technique probably wasn't up to her standards, and my breath was probably way garlic-y from the leftover Chinese food I'd had for lunch, but it couldn't be that bad, could it? Not after we'd waited that long.

"Skimmer?"

"Oh. Oh, right." Coherent thought, I needed to form it. Which Ivy's proximity and the memory of Ivy's kiss still lingering on my lips weren't doing anything to help.

"I love you."

Ivy's breath hitched.

"I mean, I've known that for a while now," I said, wrapping my arms around myself. "I just wasn't sure..." I shook my head. "I didn't know if I could do the whole, you know, girl thing."

Ivy's eyes fell closed, her expression falling away, leaving her face blank and showing nothing. If I didn't hurry up, she wouldn't hear anything I was saying and I needed her to hear it. I grabbed her hand. "Listen. I knew I loved you but I didn't know if I would like it. I couldn't just walk up to you and kiss you and then say, no, sorry, doesn't work for me. I care about you too much to do that."

Ivy hesitated, then her eyes slid open looking suspiciously damp. "So you kissed Skimmer?"

I nodded. "Because I hate Skimmer."

Her head fell back against the wall with a thud. "You're an idiot," Ivy said in a no-nonsense tone of voice.

It stung, but given the events of the past few minutes I held onto the retort that was dying to fly off my tongue. I was still waiting, hoping for something else. Ivy hadn't given any indication of how she felt.

She sighed. "But you're my idiot." Her hand circled my wrist and she tugged, pulling me closer. I came willingly, leaning up against her, until we were touching down the line of our bodies. Our lips were just about to meet for a second time when she pulled back, her eyes narrowed. "But no more accidents involving you and Skimmer."

"You're not going to blog about this are you?"

With Doris sprawled, naked and sweaty, across her bed, giving her a measuring look it seems insulting, but Blake knows why she's asking. She gets it. That doesn't mean she likes it. She's changed, turned over a new leaf.

"Don't be silly."

Doris sits up. "Because it's your bed I'm in?"

Blake turns her head away. She feels hurt, not romantic. Doris touches her thigh. Apology in a brush of skin. Blake sighs, shifts toward her.

"Because I like you."

Doris kisses her hard.

So, I'm not doing NaNo in the traditional sense, but I am thinking about taking advantage of November to get a solid hefty chunk of writing done on...something yet to be decided. There are several things I've been thinking about so I thought I'd throw a couple of them out and see what everyone thought.

Note: just because everyone agrees I should write something doesn't mean I necessarily will. I reserve the right to be contrary and change my mind at will. Aren't I just a bundle of laughs.

Option 1:  Finish Let Sleeping Vamps Lie. Don't everyone jump on this all at once. 

Option 2: Finish the Alphabet Drabble Meme. Yes, I know this wouldn't be that complicated for anyone else, but apparently I'm having issues with the whole drabble concept. Because they aren't working out very short and drabble-like.

Option 3: Something Otalia related. Ask [livejournal.com profile] rysler . My list of Otalia related plot bunnies is at least a mile long as is. Of course, for folks who would jump for this option first, consider that I've been working on a fairly pretty darn long Otalia fic lately that I have yet to start posting but will hopefully be completed and ready for posting in the near future. 

So...thoughts? 
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people. I'm not a fan of tagging, but if you feel like it, go for it. 

Metal clattered as small items bounded away. 

She was dizzy and stunned, her vision faltering. Her eyes felt as if they might have burst, her jaw as if it had been shattered, her neck as if the muscles had ripped. Nicci lay sprawled on the floor, savoring the strident waves of pain, wallowing in the rare sensation of feeling. 

She saw blood splattered across the light fringe of the carpet beneath her and across the warm glow of wooden flooring. She heard Jagang yelling something at her, but she couldn't make out the words over the ringing in her ears.

Wackiness encouraged.

Okay, I found this meme somewhere.  You take the first line of the last twenty-five fics that you've written and post them, and then see if there's any similarities in them. 

Apparently out of the last twenty-five things I've written, I've started a fic with dialogue six times.  In the last six months or so, I've apparently developed a habit of slapping an interjection into the middle of my opening sentence.  Don't know what that's about, but it is interesting. I didn't realize that.  The rest seem to fall into the category of either description or a definitive statement of some kind.  Dunno. I just thought it was kind of fun to see how I started things. :D

M'kay, in the spirit of full disclosure I'll admit that I didn't go with the first few songs in my playlist.  They just seemed unwrite-able for this pairing.  (One I nixed on the basis of not being willing to tell the entire internet that I owned that song.) I also looked up the lyrics to each song first and read them, but each drabble was written in only the time alloted and it shows. :p  Not my best writing.  I feel obliged to disclaim that, lol. 

Totally [livejournal.com profile] cirroco_desade's fault that I chose tonight to do this. *grin*  Ah, well, it was pretty much inevitable at some point.

Anyway, onwards to the drabbles.  I picked Abby/Ziva from NCIS for my pairing.  

Challenge:
1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn your music player on and turn it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabblet/ficlet related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it’s over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.

Interview meme.
Leave a comment that says "interview me"
I will ask you 5 questions.
Answer them in a LJ post and interview your flisters!

[livejournal.com profile] shadadukal asked:


1. Who is your favorite character in Star Wars and why?

Um...tough choice.  The obvious answer is Jaina Solo.  And I really do love Jaina. Particularly through the YJK and the NJO eras.  After that I think that Jaina got pushed to the back a little.  Her character was sort of discarded and just brought back when it was convenient.  The back and forth with Jag and Zekk I think they played with that too long, until it sort of started to hurt Jaina as a character.  I don't care if she wasn't with Jag, but Mara made the point that Jaina was acting like a teenager about it and she was.  I think it would have been more true to the character...well I think she'd already grown past that.

Then there's Mara. I think Mara would have to be my absolute favorite.  She was bad...sorta and then she was good. But when she was good she never lost that essential part of herself into being a Jedi like I think Luke did. Fett said that Jaina couldn't understand because she was a Jedi and automatically lost some of that innate humanity, but I think that Mara would have still gotten it too or maybe more completely than Jaina even. So yeah...much love for Mara there too.

2. Why do you like femslash?

Because girls are hot with other girls? It feels like a shallow answer and I guess it is, but it is kinda true also.  I guess I always liked to see more in depth relationships between women in fics, especially fan fiction and femslash does that a lot.  I think in a lot of ways femslash isn't just about romance between women, although it is, but it can also just be about the way that women relate to women without having it center on men, and I think that's an area that doesn't get explored enough in more general types of fan fiction.

3. If you could live anywhere you liked in the world, without money being an issue, where would you go?

NYC, baby. I've always said that I'd love to live there for a couple of years.  Not very long. I think the small spaces, the crush of people and the fast pace would get to me eventually but I'd love to live there for a few years just for the opportunity.  The cultures, the choices, the freedom. It's not the right word, but in a city like that you don't have to worry so much about being confined by small town values.  True, you don't have the small town benefits where everyone knows you and cares about you, but at the same time everyone doesn't know you and get all up in your shit all the time! Bonus! So yeah, NYC.

4. What's your dream job? ;)

Job? I'm supposed to dream about earning a living? :p I joke.  But...um...writer maybe? I don't know. I liked jobs that keep me very phyisically active.  I thought about being a flight attendant once.  

5. This is one that
[personal profile] aruna7 asked me and I thought it was pretty cool. If you could live the rest of your life with a character, who would you choose and why?

Ashley Davies from South of Nowhere.  Okay, I know that sounds random, but...these crazy characters that are in all kinds of life threatening situations sound cool and all, but to actually live with them, I'd want someone saner and in less of a life endangering thing.  Ash is quite hot, enough of a bad girl not to be boring, but not too crazy either mostly.  And very sweet and funny in her own way. So...yeah.

I will ask you 5 questions.
Answer them in a LJ post and interview your flisters!

[livejournal.com profile] racethewind10  asked:

1. Why The Hollows? *g* you knew it was coming

Heh. The Hollows surprised me really. The first book I read was For a Few Demons More and honestly, while I was interested I was kinda lost and not that impressed and then I started skimming through towards the end and all of a sudden, holy hell, but there were hot girls making out in hot ways in the totally random book that I'd never heard of before! It was an oversight that I had to immediately rectify and I went out and found the other books pretty soon after that. The more I read the more totally freaking obvious and inevitable the relationship between Rachel and Ivy seemed from the beginning of the series. After that...well, my immediate impulse with a fandom that I like is to fic it, so...when I realized there was an audience for it, I dove right in. The rest is history, or so they say. :p

2. When did you first start writing? What was the impetous?


Oh god. This is where it gets embarrassing. I was fourteen the first time I started writing fan fiction. I discovered fic totally by accident. I was really into Star Wars and I just kinda stumbled across it around the time I discovered the internet. At first I kinda thought it was blasphemy and then I realized that for a fast reading, book junkie like me it was kind of heaven if you could actually find good fic. So eventually I really wanted to read stories about the relationship between Jaina Solo and Mara Jade. In retrospect I had a massive crush on Mara Jade. I did say this was gonna be embarrassing right? So anyway, I couldn't find any of these fics that were like I wanted so I got the brilliant idea to write my own story. To say it sucked and was really awful, would probably be a massive understatement. After that I got lucky and I ran into this twenty-one year old grad student who I talked into letting me beta for her, which...god, I so don't know how I did that. So in return she beta'd for me, and that's pretty much how I learned most of the basic language and/or grammar skills that I now have.

3. What is your inspiration in life?


Um, I'm supposed to have inspiration? Oops. I dunno. I wouldn't really consider myself inspired. I've never known what I wanted to do with my life or had any dreams really. It sounds sad, but I don't know. If you mean inspiration in the sense, of people you look up to and want to be like, I'd have to say my Dad. I grew up practically worshiping him and when he fell off the pedestal for me it was kinda hard, but it kind of made me love him more, because he had issues just like me. So, yeah. This should totally be called 'The Way More Than You Wanted To Know' Quiz.

4. What is your greatest fear?

Loosing my family. No contest. Sometimes I feel like they're strangling me and I don't know how to deal with them. But I couldn't deal without them either. They're the most important thing to me.

5. What is one thing you must do before you die?

I guess this one sorta goes along with the dreams thing. If I'd been asked several years ago, I'd have said go to NYC, but I've been there now. Um, I have a very TMI answer, but I'm not going there. So...I guess, um, not be alone. I know that sounds like a crazy goal, but I think I'd like to find a person that I want to spend the rest of my life, or at least the forseable future with as a partner. Wow. That was cheesy.
