I’ve officially opted out of Christmas this time around (It turns out that you can do that!!)

but I would still like to do something to celebrate the turning over of this year. On a purely personal level, it has been an important year for me, and I am optimistic about 2015. I’ve got off-internet covered, but I don’t want to leave y’all out either - I can’t remember a Before Fandom time in my life.

so I am thinking: teeny teeny gifts, free for the asking. (By teeny I mean the general effort level of limericks or half-drabbles.) If you want to be on my list to receive something like that, let me know.

Correction.

My tumblr is fine. I decided to see what my TWITTER had been up to since 2010, and turns out it had learned russian and made 500 new friends, all by itself.

(if people noticed me refollowing them, on occasion more than once, that was during the cleanup)

I decide to go on tumblr eta: TWITTER for the first time in forever, and looks like my account has been thoroughly hacked? Great.

the Character Roulette Meme (AKA Silly Question Game) is the greatest writing game you'll ever play

I wrote this for tumblr's benefit, but since journal fandom is the one that appreciates the game...


The Character Roulette Meme was a tradition left behind in the fandom move to tumblr, and we are all missing out.



The rules of Character Roulette:



1. Make up a numbered list of 10 to 15 characters and keep it a secret for now.

2. Ask everyone to make up questions, in the form of:

"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?"

3. Stop taking questions, and then fill in the names from your list and answer accordingly.

4. Post results.

5. Hilarity ensues.

Hilarity and *really interesting* scenarios that neither you or the question asker would have thought up separately.



Why it is so much fun

Showers!

Even my default icon is a shower. Wow.

Anyway, I took a round of gen shower prompts on tumblr, and I have a couple results that aren't homestuck related!

DS9: Kira and Sisko for hannah )

Girl Genius: Gil and Tarvek )

....And actually, since I am at it, here are some 3 sentence(ish) breakups:

Girl Genius: Axel Higgs/Zeetha )

Comics: Clark/Diana for philippos42 )

Also. *Would* anyone be interested in me collecting homestuck prompt meme ficlets over here? I have done a large amount of them, but I assume everyone who has signed up for this journal back when it was more active is... not really.

I am really excited.

My (relevant) life goal was "mediocre at ukulele".

I bought a ukulele one week ago exactly, and at this rate I'm going to hit "mediocre" within a month. I already know like 10 chords. I just have to work on my transitions and the B flat chord and the more interesting strumming patterns.

I've started reading the Vorkosigan saga, although *mostly* the experience so far has been me whining to people on tumblr about it.

I liked the last part of Barrayar, though, so! Steady on.

FREE BOOK

I *keep* forgetting to post this here, which is embarrassing because this is where any interested parties would be following me (if they still are? hi?) but I am giving away a book!

It's a signed, illustrated copy of Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

Pictures and instructions at this post, and please note it is closing at the end of October. However, if you want to try, your odds of winning aren't bad at all! (See again: dash full of confused Homestuck fans.)

Gravity is a really excellent movie in my favourite genre (space), and you should go see it.

Overheard initial conversation coming out of the theatre was stuff like "When I stood up, my legs were shaking, like I was in zero G haha" and "I'm dizzy; I wasn't breathing for half the movie." and "I had to go to the bathroom since it started."

These are actual quotes, as nearly as I can transcribe them, which I think says a lot about audience immersion in the movie.

brainstorm > brain cloud: my hypothesis

I've been having the sort of creative crisis for the past few weeks where "writing" becomes a word that means "the process of tabbing between approximately 4 google docs, muttering Why Do I Suck So Hard At Everything I Attempt Forever as an incessant mantra, daily, for hours at a time".

And as much as I feel a twinge of guilt for ignoring my Dreamwidth but for silly request memes, WHO IS IN THE MOOD FOR A SILLY REQUEST MEME?

Specifically this one, because I'm still fond of the results:

Give me a pairing (or a 3+some) and I will give you a brief summary of their totally overwrought love story! It will be like a Harlequin romance, except I have very little idea of how Harlequin romances actually work, so probably it won't be like that at all.

Fandoms are anything I'm familiar with, and if I'm left staring blankly I'll ask for a new prompt. (Strong contenders include Homestuck, Spin State & sequels, subsections of the DCU, Good Omens, incomplete swaths of Trekverse... but this is not an exhaustive list. Eg, I listened to Welcome To Night Vale yesterday, and completely forgot until this sentence.)
