IWRY 2013 - All We Do (All We Can)

It's been ages since I posted, hasn't it? Two major reasons for that: 1) I've been busy with college and my new job, which eat up a lot of my time so I haven't had much time to write at all, and 2) what little time I do have has mostly been spent writing Doctor Who fic (specifically Doctor/Rose - if you're interested, I'll give you links to my ao3/fanfiction accounts where I post it).

But it's IWRY time aka one of the best times of the year! So here we are with my story which you can also read on the site here.

Title: All We Do (All We Can)
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Wordcount: 1,420
Setting: AU to Helpless
Characters/Pairings: Buffy/Angel
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: These are Joss Whedon's toys. I'm just playing with them.
Summary: Things don’t go so well during the Cruciamentum.
Notes: For the IWRY 2013 ficathon. This was written partly because I wanted to explore vampire!Buffy and partly because I wanted to explore a different style.
There"s so much red everywhereCollapse )

these scars of mine

Title: these scars of mine
Fandom: Angel
Author: Dralf

Rating: PG-13, edging and possibly crossing into R for sex but it's not explicit
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Summary: Post-NFA, he is given his reward, but it doesn't feel like one.
Notes: It's been a while since I had time to write fic and I've been spending a lot of time playing with some Doctor Who ideas, but this idea snatched my muse and took her out for a drive. A few hours later, here is the result. It's a bit experimental in style. Driven by the forgiveness prompt over at angel_hoard.

He barely manages to stagger out of the city...Collapse )

It"s one of those quiet, fuzzy mornings...Collapse )

IWRY 2012 - Seven Sins

It's IWRY time! And yes I am posting here late, but since most of you follow the IWRY journal, I'm sure it's fine and this is mostly for archival purposes anyway. Here we go, I present Seven Sins.

"Do you want something..."Collapse )

Wishlist Meme

perpetual has started off a wishlist meme. The rules written by her are below followed by my own list.

How It Works:

Post to your LJ (publicly or flocked) with a list of ten things you want to receive for the holidays. They can be anything, from a personalized LJ icon or drabble to a purebred puppy - as long as all the items on the list are things that you genuinely want.

If there's anything on your list that needs to come to you through the mail, make your shipping address available, but please be safe about it and don't post that part publicly - just specify how people should go about getting it.

Next:

Look around your friends list for others who have posted the meme. (The more who do, the better this works, so encourage them!) If you see a wish you can grant, GO FOR IT. You might find a little thing you can do for free that will make someone happy, or you might just discover that a stranger is longing for the exact boxed set of DVDs that you no longer want.

Don't spend money unless you want to, and don't commit to more than you can handle without stressing yourself. There are no rules to this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. If someone surprises you with a gift certificate to the restaurant you never thought you'd get to go to, don't feel guilty or obliged to return the favor. The point is to spread around a lot of opportunities to grant wishes - use them as you see fit, and remember that your list gives those opportunities to others!

Tips:

Dream big, but stay practical. If you really want the Mercedes, put the Mercedes on the list, but don't forget that you also really want some feedback on the story you wrote - so put that on the list too. It's fun to imagine something huge happening through this meme, but we'll recognizes the unlikelihood of it and make sure our friends still have a chance to do something thoughtful that's within their means.

Put limits on yourself for what, but not who: if you've decided that you can spend a few hours drawing a picture, but none of your friends are asking for one, keep looking for wishlists - you might even make a new friend or two! Ask people to link their lists for you, and don't be afraid to post your own in a few places.

Let's make some wishes come true this year!

My Wishlist

1) Marvel comics - I'm specifically interested in Runaways, Astonishing X-men, or any of the Avengers comics, but any comics are fine by me.
2) New friends on LJ or Tumblr
3) A Buffy the Vampire Slayer fanvid set to any song by Breaking Benjamin or The Pretty Reckless 
4) Anything with dragons  
5) A Wish!verse Buffy/Angel story
6) Art, be it dragons, B/A fanart, Marvel fanart, whatever.
7) Spike/Faith fanfiction
8) Book/fanfic recs
9) Soundtrack for Sweeney Todd or Dr Horrible
10) Links to websites with mythology or you can just tell me some interesting bit of mythology or a mythology book.

Note: If you want my address, send me a PM.

The Legend of Korra S1 E11-12 Review

I still have family over, so I don't have time to write the review, which I really want to be cohesive and thoughtful along with the spazz, right now. It'll come up tomorrow. Until then, feel free to just discuss things because that was a fantastic season finale (though I had some issue with the last few minutes - reasons to come).

EDIT: Review is now below.


Spoiler-y review belowCollapse )

The Legend of Korra S1 E10 Review

And another review made up of the notes I took while watching the episode. For the finale episodes, I'll definitely write something more cohesive.


As always, spoilers belowCollapse )

The Legend of Korra S1 E9 Review

I've been really busy, so I haven't been able to watch Korra until now. I still have family over, so I don't have time to write a full review. Instead here are the notes I took while watching the episode. They're very disorganized and random. I'll post the review for episode 10 later when I have time to watch the episode.
