So there's this movie? Called Pompeii? Something to do with a volcano erupting?

I think really the main thing to know about this movie is that it has this:



[personal profile] bedlamsbard has seen this movie (PURELY FOR THE PLOT, I AM SURE), and I was half-convinced these were prosthetic abs*. So, of course, we discussed:

bedlamsbard: ahahahahahahaha his abs are just so shiny. And at one point he breaks a horse's neck with his bare hands.
snacky: I don't know if can actually see this movie because of the abs, I swear to god. I would be so distracted. AND OF COURSE HE DOES.
snacky: I saw the ads and were convinced they were prosthetic abs. "but i've seen him shirtless before and and and ... guh."
bedlamsbard: even the female characters are like, damn, girl, did you see his arms? I did not. I was blinded by his abs.
snacky: those abs look like they should come with a warning, let's be real!
bedlamsbard: they're just so shiny. And I don't even find Kit Harington that attractive in the face, just, you know, ABS.
snacky: i admit i do like his face but holy crap the ABS are basically hypnotic
bedlamsbard: his arms are pretty great too.
bedlamsbard: there's also a scene where he's strung up half-naked and whipped because why the hell not, you know?
snacky: exactly, if you have his abs glistening like that, it would be a waste not to!
bedlamsbard: he's also in chains a lot because he's a slave. It's pretty great. Uh. I mean.
snacky: YOU'RE BASICALLY HARDCORE SELLING ME ON THIS MOVIE, BED!
snacky: which I was interested in because uh, Pompeii yes.
bedlamsbard: ALSO THERE'S A VOLCANO AND A TSUNAMI WAVE. And a bad Roman senator, because of course. And dead bodies hung from trees, obvs.
bedlamsbard: There's a giant fight scene where he's chained up the entire time, she says dreamily. (I really liked the fighting.)
snacky: this is perhaps the greatest conversation of my day.


So. Anyone want to see Pompeii with me?


*Shades of the rubber back, Thorn Birds friends!

Here, I like this meme:

Give me a canon. I'll give you two or three of my favourite ships for it.

You can pick canons I know, that would be best. But if you give me one I don't know, I'll work it out with fannish osmosis. ;)

My boss said to me today, "Benedict Cumberbatch has a Voldemort face. I keep expecting his nose to fall off and he will reveal his evil self."

Best crossover idea ever, y/y?

John and I were discussing how [personal profile] bookshop caused an explosion in One Direction teenhat fandom last week, and I explained to him one of my deepest fears:


Snacky: my bff's 12 year old daughter is a huge One Direction fan
Snacky: she texts me pics of them
Snacky: I am just praying that she doesn't have a tumblr
John: she sits you down in tears
John: "there's this monster out there," she says. "its name is AJA"
John: and you'll say "it's pronounced asia"
snacky: (fan war)
While discussing fic tropes and tags:

John: what's omegaverse?
Snacky: oh john
Snacky: i almost don't want to tell you
John: wait
John: does this involve 'knotting'
Snacky: yes
John: shh
John: shh
John: no more words
Snacky: it grew out of knotting, but now there is more to it
John: shh
Snacky: i mean, basically knotting was not enough
Snacky: wait
Snacky: i'm not shhshing fast enough, am I?
John: no
John: *gets taser*

Earlier on Twitter:

@bedlamsbard: Some stuff always triggers my Narnia random academia stuff hindbrain. Now thinking of famous Narnian paintings.

@snacky: I misread that as "famous Narnian pairings" started thinking of stories of famous Narnian lovers in epic poetry, plays & song.

@bedlamsbard: Heh! Gosh, I can't even begin to think of famous Narnian pairings. Edmund and his mistresses. Caspian and the Star's Daughter.

@snacky: One of the Narnian's bards' favorites: The Tale of the High King and Seven Would-be Wives. :D

@bedlamsbard: And the romance that no one ever talks about: Caspian the Conqueror and his Narnian wife.

@bedlamsbard: A famous Narnian painting about a pairing! King Edmund sitting in the throne room, listening to a suit but looking at his mistress.

@snacky: Or Caspian and the Star's Daughter on their wedding night, with the stars shining down on them.

More famous Narnian paintings! )
snacky: (yuletide)
I dreamed last night that I was reading LJ and that there was Yuletide wank.

People were upset because they felt that Yuletide was discriminating against them, by making them turn in their fic by a deadline, and they were protesting it. There were lots and lots of linked posts and arguing and just wank all around.

Then I read the words:

"Yuletide discriminates against chronically chrono-challenged people!"

I dunno, it's kind of sad that I am 1) dreaming about reading Livejournal, and 2) dreaming about Yuletide wank. On the other hand, any dream I have that includes the words "chronically chrono-challenged" was a good one. :D

Last night on Twitter, [personal profile] wingedflight21 tweeted:

@WingedFlight: I enjoy introducing friends to the joys of fandom through sex shenanegains. @accidentalsquid

Then I saw this tweet:

@accidentalsquid: @snacky So, @WingedFlight just told me that Peter got laid. Also, something about porpoises. Say it ain't so?

@snacky: I believe Peter getting laid is still being written. Meanwhile Susan did get laid, and Edmund thought he heard porpoises.

@accidentalsquid: @snacky And that was what you missed last time on Glee!


Madness ensues... behind the cut. )

I suspect I should be embarrassed. But, as [personal profile] musesfool always says, "we make our own fun."
snacky: (narnia vdt on a boat)
Yes, I have made more A Softer World/Narnia remixes. Me + Photoshop = TLF! :D





And even more back here! )
snacky: (BSG starbuck is back don't freak out)
Well, a podcast, actually! The wonderful ladies of Narnia Fan Fiction Revolution had me on their podcast, AsCast. If you want to hear me talking about The Silver Chair, fandom in general, and how I met J.K. Rowling, you can download the episode here. It's AsCast Ep. 18: We're Firing Liam Neeson and Hiring Jane Lynch. Yes. As you can imagine, it's a lot of fun.

*************

Meme time, meme time!

1. COMMENT WITH A MYSTERIOUS COMMENT OF YOUR CHOICE.
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Post the names of five fictional characters and your thoughts on each.



[personal profile] musesfool gave me the letter S for characters: They're back here! )

*************

Music meme: Comment and I'll give you a letter. Then, post five songs that start with the letter.

[personal profile] musesfool gave me C: Five songs back here... )
snacky: (narnia vdt lucy says hello)
More a softer world remixes. John says I am adorkable, but I am having fun with these! :D

A Softer Narnia... )
snacky: (narnia vdt through the lilies)
Hello, people of the internet. You ask how I have been spending my time, well, I have been sending out resumes and... waiting to hear things. Mostly, I hear a resounding silence. Today, I got an rejection letter, and I actually was excited about it. Only because at least I knew there was a definitive answer, rather than just hoping to hear something for weeks. I know, I know, I am sad.

I also play around with Photoshop! (I know, I know, again, sad.)

You know the webcomic a softer world? Well, [personal profile] musesfool showed me remixes of that comic that people had done for the DCU, like so:



The deal is, you take the text from the comic, and add your own visuals to it.

So I said to myself, "Self, why don't you try that for your fandom?" And I did! Some results behind the cut (warning, lots of images): a softer Narnia... )
snacky: (narnia vdt lucy says hello)
I have other things I can and should be doing, but instead, I was playing around with Wordle! Because who can resist the allure of a pretty pretty word cloud? Not me, that is for sure.

Anyway, some Wordles of a few of my fics and RP logs (warning, big images to follow), ta da! )

Here is a fun meme:

Give me the title of a story I've never written, and feedback telling me what you liked best about it, and I will tell you any of: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made me want to write it, the biggest problem I had while writing it, why it almost never got posted, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that I wish I'd been able to salvage, a short excerpt, or something else that I want readers to know.

So last night, [personal profile] musesfool and I were discussing Yuletide's most recent wank, as you do.

And we came to the conclusion that based on this wank, Yuletide needs... )
