And then I tried to do a prompt meme on tumblr, where they always look kind of floppy and out of their natural place...

for [ profile] inkstrangle: JOHN EGBERT: 5 loves, 4 lies, 2 shoes )

(The shoes aren't part of the meme, they were just what I made myself for my birthday.)

(They also glow in the dark, just to be sure you *know* I am a properly mature grown-up.)

In addition to their current identities, The Old Spice Man and Rose Lalonde are both researchers in the field of deception analysis. Are they friendly colleagues and co-authors, or do they hate each other's guts? )

A dating website attempts to find a romantic match for a spankbot. Out of all the other fourteen participants, who would be the most suitable? The least? )

Benjamin Sisko, Abed Nadir, and Cassandra Cain go out for drinks. What kind of drinks are served, and where do all three find themselves in the morning? )

Is Agatha Heterodyne religious? )

Kara Zor-El ordered a hamburger without any onions, yet when they received said hamburger it has onions anyway. How do they respond? )

For reasons too complicated to go into right now, Cristina Yang and Karkat Vantas have to get married. What do they wear, and what kind of ceremony do they have? )

Bounty hunters are sent to hunt down Amanda Waller and bring them to justice. Do the hunters succeed? )

Mxyzptlk turns a spankbot into a ceiling fan. Do Karkat Vantas and Alice Morgan hurry to change the spankbot back, or try and make that transformation permanent after Mxy goes home? )

Who looks better in a suit, Kara Zor-El or Abed Nadir? )

If it became the style to stick your fringe/bangs up like Cameron Diaz in There's Something about Mary, would Hyacinthe Cohen adopt it or decide not to follow the trend? How about Benjamin Sisko? Agatha Heterodyne? )

Troy Barnes and Rose Lalonde get married! But not to each other! To whom? )

[personal profile] gogollescent

The Old Spice Man is a dragon and telepathically bonded to Amanda Waller. What's the era? Are they cruising through the Napoleonic Wars or running a con in the 21st century? Or are they actually on Pern? )

Benjamin Sisko and Hyacinthe Cohen encounter an unchaperoned child version of Cristina Yang. Do they sell it into slavery, keep it and raise it, or try to frame one another for its kidnapping? )

Kara Zor-El and John Egbert are married when the zombie apocalypse arrives, and John Egbert is infected with totally unrelated parasitic worms. TELL ME ABOUT IT. )

Cristina Yang is an undercover policeman trying to ingratiate themselves with the mob; Alice Morgan is a weary, jaded piece of arm candy for one of the mafia boss' lieutenants, and developing a late-life urge for revenge. Do they strike a deal, start a pale/black flip, or just have moments of frozen empathy in crowded nightclubs? )

IS Karkat Vantas SECRETLY EVIL? )

I'm giving myself amnesty on the last round and starting this anew!

Since it's been a while, the rules:

1) Make a list of fifteen characters, and keep them to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask everyone to make up questions in the comments.

For example: "One forces Two and Seven to get married. Is it a happy marriage?"
"Five, Six and Twelve form a band! What do they call themselves? Are they any good?"
"Why *are* all the other numbers afraid of Seven?"
What if did another round of silly questions, would anyone be up for that?

That is one place tumblr severely falls down, ime: silly response memes.

I decided to watch Luther on account of it had less episodes than Babylon 5 and I know my media consumption habits too well. And sure enough, instead of watching one episode a day on the commute from work, I watched ALL the episodes in three days instead of, like, sleeping.

No regrets though.

Why is it that every time I check the pub date for the next Chris Moriarty book the answer is "6 months from now".

This is a terrible prank. Although I suppose I must, on reflection, respect the time commitment involved.

(No, no, I know how writing works, really. I just want to watch Li and Cohen fail at each other nigh completely in slow motion some more, plus spaceships. I am very specific to please.)

I am informed that the young, thin, afflicted with porn-face Waller currently running around the nu!DCU is not in fact the reimagined character I was assuming, but in fact her grand(?)daughter.

In which case, approx. half of my Amanda-Waller related anger dissipates. It is cool that she gets legacy status, even if 1. this has never worked well in the past and 2. following in her footsteps is not at all what Amanda would want for her children or theirs.

Still not going back though.
I can't decide if I am going to or not... I'm already signed up for one holiday timed challenge, and historically I've been barely able to handle *one*.

On the other hand, *Yuletide*.

Gakked most lately from, oh let's say, [ profile] derryderrydown.

I've never played this game before, so who knows how it'll turn out, but does anyone want me to do a DVD style commentary on any of my fics (and/or other fanworks, why not)?

Most of my writing can be found in my fic tag and/or AO3 account.

re: Wonder Woman's new origin

The most amusing (read: "amusing") thing is that a couple years ago, I was discussing Wonder Woman with someone who offered that "Wonder Woman makes guys uncomfortable."

Me: What, cause she can beat them up?

Her: No, because no man was involved in her genesis. Simply by her *existence*, she's a threat to the assumption of male necessity.*

But of course, I did not take this theory very seriously!

People the joke is on: ME.

*English major. I am paraphrasing, but I got the impression she'd just finished an essay on the topic.
From here:

In DC COMICS-THE NEW 52, Wonder Woman will have a new origin, in which she is the daughter of Hippolyta... and Zeus! In recent interviews, writer Brian Azzarello and artist Cliff Chiang have teased that readers should expect the unexpected in this edgier, horror take on the superhero genre ­and the king of the gods will ensure that nothing goes as planned for his defiant daughter.

Originally created by the goddess Aphrodite and raised to perfection on the Amazon island of Themiscyra, the newest incarnation of Wonder Woman has a new costume and now a new origin ­but she remains Wonder Woman.

Yes that is what the Wonder Woman story was missing. A father figure with control issues.

I don't understand why everything is terrible for always.
I have spent the last couple days listening to nothing but earnest love songs. And now I am in pain and vomiting a bunch. A casual correlation? I like to believe so.

So anyway, I have a problem with completist tendencies! This one was a very different exercise than the black romances... the world isn't exactly running low on the other sort of love songs and, you know. Completist tendencies.

Just now saw a picture of the rebooted Amanda Waller -- here's a link, which leads to a comic book rendering of a thin, young, conventionally attractive woman in a cleavage shirt and glossy red lipstick. Also she appears to be smiling somewhat vacantly.
