fishpatrol: (just you & me)
1. My new year's resolution is to be less of an antisocial hermit (I kick-started this resolution by actually going to a new year's eve party rather than rolling myself up in a blanket burrito and reading fic. 10 points to me~) My other resolution is to be less of a failbot, but I'm not doing so well on that one. \o\

1.5 I've noticed that the traffic on LJ has been declining drastically over the past few months (probably due to a combination of the increasing popularity of Twitter/Tumblr/etc and LJ's own fuck-ups). Part of my resolution is to be more social online as well as offline, so tell me how I can interact and socialize with you! Yes, YOU, right there, reading this entry. I am always up for chatting about fannish things and capslocking about random things and, idk, discussions about human behaviour and whatnot.

I'm unalignable on Twitter, fishpatrol at DW (I haven't updated this account since last year \o\ if you post exclusively on DW, let me know! I haven't checked my...reading circle? --is that what they're called?-- in ages); I'm considering opening a Tumblr account, but it is like VORTEX OF UNENDING IMAGES -- you fall in and by the time you climb back out, five hours have already gone by. /o\

If you communicate primarily by email/gchat, I'm meemobunny[at]gmail (I am always so uncertain whether or not I should just chat at someone if I see them online \o\ WHAT IF THEY DON'T WANT TO TALK. /O\ So, here: if I'm online, you can always chat at me!) I also have Whatsapp, so if that's your preferred method of communication, we can exchange numbers through, idk, PMs or something.

[/TALK TO ME...?]

2. 2012 has been kind of a shit-show. 2013 hasn't been significantly better, but hey, it's only been two days. (more about this in a locked entry, later -- this is a it's-a-new-year-let's-be-optimistic post)

3. So, about a month ago, I accidentally fell into the hockey RPF fandom, oops. I thought it was just a ~passing ~phase, but I've now recorded a one-hour long podfic and I kind of want to record more, so, uh, IDEK. Poor [ profile] applegeuse has had to endure my incessant vomming of hockey feels. Mostly, I say stuff like I am totally ~doing ~sports ~wrong, because I care very little about the actual skill of the players, or how good a team is -- I ONLY CARE ABOUT HOW AMUSING THE PLAYERS ARE AS ~PEOPLE (I love watching behind the scenes videos, etc akdslfjdsj). It just so happens that the better players get more interviews/behind the scenes/etc, so I end up liking the ones that play well because of COINCIDENCE. \o\ /o/ \o\ I'll bet I could totally get roped into American football RPF and/or European football (soccer :P) RPF as well, if they had a ton of fics and a ton of lolarious videos sdklafjlad;j THERE IS JUST SOMETHING DELICIOUS ABOUT A BUNCH OF DUDES WHO ARE RIDIC DEDICATED TO A RIDIC GAME AND, LIKE, ~FEEL INTENSE ABOUT THE GAME AND TO EACH OTHER AND ARE PROBABLY ALL FAILBOTS OUTSIDE OF THEIR RIDIC GAME. THEY ARE ALWAYS TOGETHER (LIVING TOGETHER, BEING ON THE ROAD TOGETHER, PLAYING TOGETHER) AND BOND OVER THEIR INTENSE FEELS ABOUT THEIR RIDIC GAME. IT IS LIKE BOARDING SCHOOL STORIES (which I have always enjoyed in real!books and fic :>) BUT MORE ~INTENSE. [/vomming feels] And she's like, OMG WHY ARE YOU EVEN IN THIS FANDOM, COME BACK TO SPN/J2. s;alkdfjsl;d \o\ /o/ \o\

(I usually blame [ profile] lemniciate for getting me into random fandoms, but this time, it's totally [ profile] scintilla10's fault. Well, okay, no, not really. It's mostly because I am weaksauce and just need one picture/fic/podfic to pique my interest. X3;; She mentioned the fandom in passing, I lol'ed at her, and the next thing I knew, I was guzzling down the fics on AO3/listened to all of the podfic at least twice/trawled tumblr looking at images and gifs. *MASSIVE FACEPALM* HOW DID I GO FROM THIS TO THIS? creying and slobbing forever /o\)

3.5 ANYWAY. I doodled [ profile] applegeuse a little J2 (feat. the alliterative cats) for being a ~good ~sport (hur hur) about the whole thing.

4. On the one hand, there is no such thing as "too much cake". On the other hand, YES, YES THERE IS. TOO MUCH SUGAR, BLERGH BLERGH.

HI. :D Since the letter is due today, I will try to make it short and simple. XD

ETA; Oct 10, 2014: I'm participating for the fourth year in a row! My trope preferences haven't changed, but my fandom preferences have changed somewhat -- same deal as last year: new fandoms in italics, and removed fandoms are crossed out. Also, I'm A-okay with repods! It's completely up to you! Since I don't have a Pinboard, I've listed a very small handful of favourite (podfic-friendly, for the most part) authors under each fandom, but you absolutely don't have to stick with these options (I didn't want to go on a listing rampage!)! I just provided a few of them since I know some people prefer to have more specific information to work with. :)

ETA; Oct 9, 2013: Since my preferences haven't changed drastically from last year, I'm just going to update this dear-podficcer letter instead of writing a new one. :> New fandoms are in italics, and removed fandoms are crossed out.

\o/ )

Thank you, #itpe-er, you are awesomepants,

P.S. Conveniently enough, I have compiled a list of SPN/SPN RPF writers with blanket permission right here. :>

P.P.S. I keep incorrectly typing "#itpe" as "#ipte", but then I remember what [ profile] applegeuse said: "i hope you are also pronouncing it as IT-PEE in your head". XD (also, [ profile] applegeuse is a sparkly kidney-stealing unicorn who knows which SPN/SPN RPF authors I like EVERYTHING, jsyk ;))
fishpatrol: (FOAMING~~)
How [ profile] applegeuse wins internet!arguments:

‪‪me‬: YOU PICK
applegeuse:‬ I CAN'T PICK
me‬: I CAN
applegeuse‬: I DODGE THAT BULLET
me‬: I'M OLDER
applegeuse‬: I'M BIGGER
me‬: if i can't pull the age card and you can't pull the size card
then we will have to rock/paper/scissors/lizard/spock for it
applegeuse‬: if you choose lizard, i choose to pull your lizard tail off.
me‬: what. that is not an option. D:

(this story ends with me being ~self-sacrificial)

Also, she gave me questions for the Seven Questions meme that I totally forgot to do \o\

[Everyone and their monkey's uncle have already done the meme, but what the heck ever:

Comment to this post (and say, "SAM IS A FANCY LADY"), and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.]

1. If you could only eat one vegetable for the rest of your life, what would it be? Also, you can’t cook it. You have to eat it raw.

WHAT EVEN. I CHOOSE...CARROTS. (do tomatoes count as vegetables? because I'd choose tomatoes)

Q2-Q7 )

In other news, I want to get sorted at Pottermore but I don't want to go through all of the chapters. \o\~~~

In other HP-related news, I've been listening to this podcast* -- it is ridiculous and probably kind of self-indulgent on the author's part, but it's ever so entertaining and addictive!
*-at first I thought to myself, "This is an audio recording of a fanfiction! It is a podfic!" But! as I listened to more and more of it, I realized that it was not, in fact, podfic. I get the impression that the reader performs more similarly to an audiobook reader than a podfic reader. And the fanfic is a "fanfic" insofar as it's a written transformative work based off of JK Rowling's books, but it's more of a re-write of HP:PS with Harry being a clever snothead and pointing out all the flaws of the wizarding world and magic (it is funnier and more entertaining than I make it out to be, I swear!) than a typical fanfiction (there is, however, a brief mention of H/D mpreg~).

1. I liked exactly three things about 7x05: spoilers~ )

2. [ profile] applegeuse and I have really profound conversations:
cut for general inappropriateness and inability to pluralize correctly )

3. I did want to post about Serious Business, but I spent the entire day reading Harry/Snape fics (it's [ profile] lemniciate's fault, because it's always [ profile] lemniciate's fault when I spend an entire day reading fic X3) and I'm in a total fic-induced daze and nothing hurts.
