Which Avenger Are You?
Black Widow / Natasha Romanoff
You are most like Black Widow. You are disciplined and dedicated, and have yet to face a challenge too big for your confidence. Being well rounded and active has helped you on the road to success. But despite your many activities and acquaintances, you are an independent creature, preferring to fly alone. You often push others away and trust only a very select few.

Frighteningly accurate, except for the whole "You are disciplined and dedicated, and have yet to face a challenge too big for your confidence." thing... no really, I feel like a slacker for most of the time :( I guess more of Natasha than "You often push others away and trust only a very select few." would do me some real good...

At Pottermore, that is. It's all [livejournal.com profile] hanseatic_keks's fault that I signed up and now I want other lemmings those on my flist who are Harry Potter fans to join! Anyone who's on there and here on the flist, add me (RuneMirror3850), please? Yes?

Meme time!

Meme!

TOP 5 ME! Books, art, culture, politics, music, fandom stuff, movies, television, anything. Ask as many as you'd like. Be vague. Be specific. I don't care if it's mundane or off the wall.


It can be in regard to me or my muses in fandoms.

Edit: What the effing hell happened to the LJ cut? Can I please get my brackets back, thank you.
gelbes_gilatier: (Just another Lorne)
Because I'm a little lemming, I couldn't help click on the link to the Fanfiction Personality Test that [livejournal.com profile] yappichick had in her profile. Here's my result:




The Mindgamer

Everything is possible, nothing is ever really over.

Fanfiction is a creative outlet for you. You don't intentionally write it, it just happens. You find inspiration in several fandoms, but are not obsessed with only one.

You like to explore "what if" situations. What if this character had never made this very choice? What if this event had taken place sooner, never, elsewhere? What if these people had never met?

You are likely to write Alternative Universes, fan seasons or sequels and just follow your (sometimes pretty strange) plot bunnies.

And, just for the fun of it, the rest of the analysis:

You scored 46% on Slasher, higher than 18% of your peers.
You scored 57% on Weirdo, higher than 29% of your peers.
You scored 80% on TrueFan, higher than 87% of your peers.
You scored 84% on Mindgamer, higher than 92% of your peers.
You scored 69% on BarelyFF, higher than 85% of your peers.
You scored 32% on Immature, higher than 16% of your peers.

WTFseriously? Okay... What...ever...
gelbes_gilatier: (twenty pounds of crazy)
So, after a little conversation with [livejournal.com profile] keylafirefly and an encounter with an origami frog army for my favorite co-worker (I wish I'd taken pictures. But then again... better not. It probably would have put me up right there with Parker *points to icon), I decided to do a collective order from KnockKnock to save shipping costs to Germany. Anyone on the flist living in Germany and wanting to spend their hard earned money on nonsense that'll label you as the office's Parker necessary office supplies, please tell me so in the comments and I'll put you on the list (haven't decided between Evernote and Delicious yet for the list. The hardships of modern life, I'm telling ya). This is important: you have until April 15 to tell me what you'd like to order. After that, I'll order and figure out how to send what to whom...

PS.: Anyone got any recs for fics for Smilla's Sense of Snow? I found myself with an insatiable craving during watching the movie on rbb tonight. Anyone? Please? Pretty please with a cherry on top?

Seen at [livejournal.com profile] rodlox's and [livejournal.com profile] hollymac79's journals:

I'm running a test to see who's reading my posts. So, if you read this, leave me a one-word comment about your day that starts with the third letter of your LJ USERNAME. Only one word please. Then repost so I can leave a word for you. Don't just post a word and not copy - that's not as much fun!
gelbes_gilatier: (Genius!)
First of all! Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] anuna_81! And happy belated birthday to [livejournal.com profile] keylafirefly!

Second: a little twitter conversation with [livejournal.com profile] anuna_81 about birthday fics (I was a little sad LJ reminded me too early of her birthday - yes, I'm the woman with the second worst memory in the world - and told her I might have written fic if I'd remembered earlier and she told me I can still write it if I want) gave me the idea that I might offer this to everyone on the flist.

So, guys, if you want fic for your birthday, please leave a comment (comments are screened, in case anyone doesn't want to make it public) and a wish for this post and ye shall reap fic for your birthday because I have a mighty Google calendar to remind me of such things. And yes, [livejournal.com profile] mackenziesmomma and [livejournal.com profile] sgteam14283, for birthday fics, crack* is okay.

*Crack, a definition thereof: everything I need to do extensive thinking about to make it plausible. Plausibility and I are very good friends. Do not take plausibility away from me. I can try to write it if I need to work hard to make it plausible. I can and will not write it if it's impossible to make it plausible. Yes.
gelbes_gilatier: (weihnachten)
So. Since the last one went a little... suboptimal (let's not talk of the still missing fics), I thought I'd start a little earlier this year. This will remain fixed here until November 30 (or until it's full) and until that you have a chance to post your prompts. This time around, let me say a couple things. Or just one. Anyway. Let's talk about crack. I don't do it. Or I do but I'm really not good at it. And I don't like to write it. Everything else is fair game. Uh. Until I say otherwise, yeah.

Also, to give you some inspiration, have a look at this:

( Holiday Fic Request Meme 2011 )

before you get to this:

Holiday Fic Request Meme 2012 )
gelbes_gilatier: (Gleeeee!)
So, guys.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Be safe and we'll see each other in 2012 :D

(I wanted to do the End of Year Fic Meme a couple of people did but I didn't get to it. I'll do it tomorrow?)
gelbes_gilatier: (Myka/Pete)
And anyway, if it were, it would be my rightful reward for finally working my way through [livejournal.com profile] mackenziesmomma's prompt for Dec 2 for the Holiday Fic Request Meme. Holy crap, I honestly didn't think those short two pages would be so hard to get into writing. That's what happens when authors ruin a perfectly good show the way they ruined EUReKA. Anyway. Not-meme now.

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] anuna_81:

1. Reply to this post and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.


Icon talk! )

Also, that other meme isn't fully resolved yet...

1. Think of up to 20 ships you support.
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
3. Have your audience guess as many of the ships as they can.
4. Fandom hints will be given if asked in the comments.

(5. And because I couldn't resist... one of them is an OC pairing...)
(6. Also, bonus points to everyone who can figure out 19!)
(7. Be quick. Otherwise [livejournal.com profile] pingulotta will have guessed all of them before we can even blink...)

1. He gave her his mother's mantle.
2. Her specialty is language, his is action.
3. She has handcuffs, he likes Rocky Road.
4. She likes things that go boom and he finds it hard to curb her enthusiasm.
5. He takes care of her caffeine addiction.
6. There are many copies of her. He'd find her even if there were a million.
7. Hers is a lion, his is a snake.
8. Scruffy is what she likes.
9. They're the Mulder and Scully of their generation.
10. She wanted to go to Australia, he didn't know if he wanted to follow her.
11. She has four sisters, he has but one.
12. The fluff in his mills looks like dangerous snow flakes to her.
13. He didn't name his plane for her. But it still is named like her.
14. She's queen bee, he's anything but a drone.
15. Zen is not what describes their relationship.
16. He wishes she would stop jumping out of windows when he's not there to catch her.
17. He would never become an outlaw. Not even for her.
18. Marrying her the first time was great. Marrying her the second time was the best thing he ever did.
19. She never lost him on Christmas. He's still out there.
20. He doesn't tell, she never asks.

Heh, look, twenty :D

Oh, whoa. Too many to choose from, actually. I'd love to spend a day with Jo March, preferably on a New England winter day, with snowball fights and an evening of reading from books and telling stories in the March home. Or blowing shit up for a day with Laura Cadman. Or a day at Camp Half Blood with the bunch from the Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. Or seeing the way the world was altered after the end of John Birmingham's Axis of Time trilogy, preferably in the company of Karen Halabi (since he killed off Jürgen Müller :P Oh, spoilers... oops).

I'm not sure if I'd like to meet Eowyn, seeing as how she and I bitched at each other during the last days when I tried to write [livejournal.com profile] sgteam14283's first prompt for the Holiday Fic Request Meme. But, ooooooh, I'd love to meet Sam Carter and Helen Magnus! I'd ask Sam how to become a soldier like her and how the hell she is so awesome and I'd never stop asking Helen about the centuries she lived in. She'd probably have to talk about WWI and WWII for at least a year or something and she'd be the best ressource ever for that WWII original story I still have on my hard drive (or my dad's NAS, since my laptop is still out of commission...). Oh yes, definitely Helen Magnus, over tea and biscuits (not cookies) by a blazing fire in the fire place in her library ♥
gelbes_gilatier: (soldier's things)
Okay then... I'm at number 13 now and almost done with the first half. I'm not sure if I can finish it this year. Apparently, I couldn't even finish it within a year since I posted the first one on October 9th 2010. But I really do plan on finishing this meme and if it takes me another year. I usually finish what I start and until now I finished more challenges than not (the 10_ocs challenge is still open but its time will come, just like the other ones') and I promise, there will come a day when every question from the meme is up in the link list, not down on the to do list. Okay, on to the next.

Or, okay, first the 12 ones I already answered. )

Oh fine, here's the next:

13. What’s your favorite culture to write, fictional or not?

It's a culture, alright. )

So... am I doing the whole military culture thing right? Anyone got something to tell me about that? Anyone know any culture they'd like me to feature more, despite my usual focus? I'm most interested!

HOLIDAY FIC REQUESTS

Comment with: a day, a fandom (can also be crossover), a character/pairing (can also be my OCs... but do try to take someone else than the farm kids, [livejournal.com profile] mackenziesmomma :P), and a prompt (can be everything from lyrics to pictures) and I will write at least 300 words for you, to be posted on the day you claimed. Any fandom/pairing that I am familiar with is fair game (just look up my interests in my profile and the comms I'm a member of), but I might ask you to choose another prompt if you leave something I feel uncomfortable writing, or if it is a fandom I haven't been into in a while.

gelbes_gilatier: (Genius!)
I really tried to talk myself out of this one because of the topic of the question but [livejournal.com profile] mackenziesmomma wouldn't let me chicken out so I figured I should just get it over with write it and be done with it. Also, until now I tried to find a fitting song for the aformentioned story tag for [livejournal.com profile] ancient_leah but I feel so alone without my laptop and my music and most of all my playlists (oh God, the playlists! They were so many I actually had to scroll, even in half screen size oh God) and last.fm isn't really helpful, either so I can just as well write another "30 Days" entry until I get a new laptop (hopefully in the next two weeks because seriously, I don't think I can make the big bang otherwise). So here we go.

First eleven under cut because the list of answered questions threatens to become longer than the actual answer... )


And the newest one:

12. In what story did you feel you did the best job of worldbuilding? Any side-notes on it you’d like to share?

Brave new worlds... )

Anyway... any of my verses you'd like to have included this? Any verses you didn't like, regarding world building? Give it all to me!
gelbes_gilatier: (Whee)
Stolen borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] csichick_2

Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

1. What they most commonly do during sex
2. Who has prettier hair
3. What they argue about most often
4. Who'd cope best if the other one died
5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.


Also, remember to look up my fandoms in the interests if you aren't sure what you can request.

Also, of course all my OC pairings (and non-pairings) and pairings I don't actively ship but you'd still like to hear about are fair game (except slash, but you might try femslash).
gelbes_gilatier: (it's like this...)
Eh. Well. Um. It's a second "30 Days" post in a week. But to be honest, I feel like I have a lot more to say about the next question than I had about the last. While that was more of a blah post, this one could become a veritable rant, seeing as I have to say a lot about the character I like to write least... but let's start at the beginning (also, tons of spoilers, mostly for Minor Characters, so if you want to read that series in the correct order and unspoilered... better skip this one).

That is, the first ten questions:

1. Tell us about your favorite writing project/universe that you’ve worked with and why.
2. How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?
3. How do you come up with names, for characters (and for places if you’re writing about fictional places)?

4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters!

5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?

6. Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good ol’ pen and paper?

7. Do you listen to music while you write? What kind? Are there any songs you like to relate/apply to your characters?

8. What’s your favorite genre to write? To read?

9. How do you get ideas for your characters? Describe the process of creating them.

10. What are some really weird situations your characters have been in? Everything from serious canon scenes to meme questions counts!

And the newest one:

11. Who is your favorite character to write? Least favorite?

People are people... )
 
BTW... who's your favorite character to read, Stargate or non-Stargate? Of mine, that is. Tell me?
gelbes_gilatier: (dirty thoughts)
Since I vaguely annonced in one of my latest story posts that I would do another "30 Days" post in the next couple of weeks and I have a spare day today and [livejournal.com profile] mackenziesmomma poked tentatively asked me to write one, I'm hereby doing exactly that (even though I'd rather like to write a post on how stupid the statement "There are only very few "legal" ways to stalk a person" is, seeing as [livejournal.com profile] rareb and I once found out real name, real address, real trained for job and real current job of a girl from that forum with only her forum nick and forum profile in a little unter 30 minutes... but I guess there will be time for that later). Yes. But first of all, all answered questions:

1. Tell us about your favorite writing project/universe that you’ve worked with and why.
2. How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?
3. How do you come up with names, for characters (and for places if you’re writing about fictional places)?

4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters!

5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?

6. Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good ol’ pen and paper?

7. Do you listen to music while you write? What kind? Are there any songs you like to relate/apply to your characters?

8. What’s your favorite genre to write? To read?

9. How do you get ideas for your characters? Describe the process of creating them.


And that's the current one:

10. What are some really weird situations your characters have been in? Everything from serious canon scenes to meme questions counts!

'Das ist der vielleicht surrealste Moment meines gesamten bisherigen Lebens, und zugleich der albernste.' )
 
PS.: BTW, if you (not you, [livejournal.com profile] mackenziesmomma because you'll sic them on me anyway) have any suggestions for cracky or at least weird stories, don't hesitate to tell me. I might write them after all :)

PPS.: Also, I think I just developed the wish to see other peoples' characters in really weird situation, such as [livejournal.com profile] ancient_leah's Team Kemp, for example. Mh...
gelbes_gilatier: (flyboys)
Righty-o, [livejournal.com profile] mackenziesmomma asked for another "30 Days of writing" entry, and because she's a really fabulous beta, she will get her wish. Although I'm not quite sure how much I can answer to the next question because I never really thought about that part of writing before but just did it, which is, in light of the question's content rather weird...

(and if you're following Protect and Survive and Minor Characters only on LJ, please be warned of spoilers for both series)

Anyway, those are the first eight answered questions:

1. Tell us about your favorite writing project/universe that you’ve worked with and why.
2. How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?
3. How do you come up with names, for characters (and for places if you’re writing about fictional places)?

4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters!
5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?
6. Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good ol’ pen and paper?
7. Do you listen to music while you write? What kind? Are there any songs you like to relate/apply to your characters?

8. What’s your favorite genre to write? To read?

And that's the current one:

9. How do you get ideas for your characters? Describe the process of creating them.

You can run but you can't hide... )
 

PS.: That just gave me an idea... if there's anything you ever wanted to know about the background of my characters - both canon and original, and all fandoms and series I have written for - but never dared to ask or would like to have a little ficlet highlighting a point in their past that I haven't written anything about yet: here's your chance. (mainly because I really love to talk about my characters' background for days on end... and because I'm looking for an excuse to write Evan Lorne, Thomas Moore and Charlie Williamson as overambitious strapping young cadets, being mean to each other on the verge of becoming friends *coughs)

Edit: And the overambitious strapping young cadets go tooo... [livejournal.com profile] ancient_leah who was the first to actually ask for them. But there are a lot of other ficlets still waiting to be written (except maybe for you, [livejournal.com profile] pingulotta because you just let yourself be convinced by certain people to make me write certain stories). Ask away.
