I have a new kitten! His name is Leo, and he is basically a puff of fuzz with two big eyes, and I love him. Everything about him makes me happy, except for the bit where he's very scared of people and is currently hiding under the armoire in the bathroom.

I am working at the library right now, and I think I have basically gotten almost all of my errands done, which is great. So to-night I will be watching A Scandal in Belgravia -- thanks [personal profile] raanve, you have made my LIFE pretty much.

And then I will do ART, because I have been reinspired by the visit of [profile] the_chloroplast to do more cardwork. Which also makes me happy, because I am always happy when I do art.

Things are shaping up well.

So I finally finished the last book in Gerald Morris' Arthurian series. I had been getting steadily more disappointed, as the last three or four books were kind of awful, but the last one was actually really good. I mean, evil!2-D!Mordred, but I've really given up on that front. And yeah. I cried. At my client's house, stealthily, while she was napping and watching The Waltons. >_> I would say Mr. Morris has seen himself off with a pleasing dignity.

BUT now I am all sad b/c all my dumb Arthurian boys are dead, so obvs. this is your cue to ask for porn of them, as I am doing: THIS MEME (which shall be called This Meme):

01 » Submit a pairing (or threesome, or solo person) and a prompt by replying to this post.

02 » Please use the following format: fandom, pairing, prompt.

03 » I'll then reply with five* sentences of smut.
[The original meme does say that you can request gen/other non-smutty things, but I'll say straight up that I'd prefer to flex my porn muscles (that was a TERRIBLE thing to say) and so would prefer that request. Having said that, y'all can of course request whatever you'd like, and I may even turn some requests into gen depending on how I feel about my ability to write the smut. Also, I guess "solo person" here refers to masturbation in the context of smut? Which I'm fine with too!] <-- so said [ profile] blindmadness and [ profile] julietveiled, so say I.

04 » If I can't do the prompt then I will beg for your forgiveness, and offer it up to others let you select another if you'd like.

This is not really restricted to Arthuriana. I also write Sherlock, Westmark, certain historical novels, Shakespeare, and can probably be conned into others if you remind me of what they are (when I'm done I will tag this post with the appropriate fandoms).

1. Wahhhh it's still hot I can't focus blah blah I hate hot weather I am currently sleeping on my parents' floor because they bought a small air conditioner for their room because it's HOT. Also the floor is not very comfy, trufax.

2. Wahhh I have been working for the last seven days straight and I will be working to-morrow as well, but Tuesday is my day off and I am going to spend ALL. DAY. in my parents' room watching Twin Peaks in the A/C. Unless I take myself out for lunch, but that will still be to an air-conditioned diner. AND THEN I WILL BE WORKING AGAIN ON WEDNESDAY. I-- yeah. I know some of y'all on my flist work a lot harder than I do, but this whole eight-days-in-a-row-8-hour-shifts-plus-one-12-hour-one thing is killing me. A lot. I just want some time to myself to fool around and take care of my keets and my poults and my fish and my hermit crabs!

3. Twin Peaks is really awesome, though. So great. I really want to read the T.V. Tropes page, but I refuse to spoil it for myself ahead of time. Which... I am the kind of person who reads the last page of murder mysteries first, so I am really feelin' it on this series.

4. Country music. Maaaan, I do like country music. Anyway, I just wanted to remark, apropos of country music, that "Hyundai" is not. pronounced. "hunday". FTLOG. Anyway, they keep playing my favourites on my way to work -- Thompson Square and Josh Turner and Blake Shelton and Reba McEntire -- and I just want to state for the record that I'm not ashamed of enjoying it. I mean, I'm not always in the mood for country, but I do think it makes really good commute music. I can listen to pretentious indie stuff at night while I'm writing poetry.

Also, regarding country music, [ profile] raanve, I found old!Lanselos' song. It's Toby Keith's "I Ain't As Good as I Once Was". Just check it out. :D

5. I am having ~feelings~ about some stuff, but I think that belongs in a locked post because a) ~feelings~ and b) boring introspection is boring. However, I will say that I tend to forget just how... mental illness phobic?... people can be, and it's very jarring to be reminded sometimes.

6. Thursday = surgery day! Woo! That means I get the day off! Now I just need it to stop being so goddamn hot, and we're good.

So when I'm not making whiny posts on my livejournal and writing horrible papers that will earn failing grades, sometimes I write fanfiction. A lot of my fanfiction lately has been about my horrible Arthurian space AU that nobody actually cares about, but some of it has been in the Sherlock fandom, a fandom I was wickedly lured into by Liz and Jen and [ profile] lyricnote, who are terrible people.

It occurred to me that I am actually allowed to post this fanfiction, even if it is ridiculous and a WIP and everybody hates WIPs.

I find the bizarre mixture of the very serious and the comical/ridiculous that pervades this show to be fascinating and weird. It's also hard to write. It exists in Firefly, too, but it seems weirder in Sherlock. Anyway, I realise my Sherlock Holmes is vaguely autism spectrum, and I don't care. >_> Writing sociopaths is hard for me; and besides, I think Benedict Cumberbatch's portrayal has distinctly autistic notes. My Sherlock is also horrifically asexual, srry there will be no sex in this fic. >_<

Title: The Antidote
Fandom: Sherlock
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock, John, one-sided John/Sherlock, Sarah and Mycroft sort-of.
Rating: PG-16
Summary: I DON'T EVEN KNOW. Sherlock is on a mission to prevent Sarah from stealing John away from him.
Notes: Part 1. Part II is currently 3/4 finished.

The Antidote )


Title: Case Studies
Fandom: Sherlock
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock, Mycroft
Rating: PG
Summary: Maybe this is why Mycroft describes himself as Sherlock's arch-enemy. >_> Kid!fic.
Notes: My Mycroft is totally a germaphobe. I think it is distressingly plausible.

Oh, kittens. I swear I am going to respond to the comments left on my two previous posts, I am just terribly distractable and tired right now. So have a collection of diverting things that I have made from the internets:

1. A meme.

Pick one of my current rp characters and I will:

(a) Three facts about them from my personal fanon.
(b) A reason they're amazing.
(c) Five things that I'd like to see happen to them.
(d) Three people that I might ship that character with and why.

I'll probably do old characters, too, if you ask; I am pliable that way.

2. A tumblr.

Fuck Yeah, Benedict Cumberbatch. Oooh yeah.

3. A game.

I had sex with Oprah.

4. Photography.

Hummingbirds, it turns out, are as derpy as the rest of us.

5. A Polyvore.

This always makes me happy.

6. A fanfiction.

Raj/Howard, Big Bang Theory. Yesssss.

7. A request.

I'm almost done with a Holmes/Watson Sherlock fanfic, would anyone mind beta-reading it for me?
psalm_onethirtyone: (Disappointed)
I know I haven't posted a whole lot lately, blah blah I am kind of pissed at livejournal due to some ~ethical considerations~ and also I am tired as hell. Anyway, I'm debating moving to insanejournal, since I hate DreamWidth's layout and lack of iconspace. We'll see how that goes--my journal is already backed up at DreamWidth, no matter what happens.

In other news, I'm tired and stressed and took part in a research lab that I shouldn't have and am still having mild trauma over. But that's a rant for another day.

I have a hell of a lot of work to do this weekend so I expect to spend most of the time being stressed out and busy, but I thought you should all know that I am going to be a blancmange with a tennis racket for Hallowe'en.
psalm_onethirtyone: (When Are We Going to GET SOMEWHERE?)
You guys have NO IDEA how glad I am that this film is not about what I thought it was going to be about. Jeez, way to give a girl a heart attack.

Also, this remains my only motivation for learning French.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Only Time Gold Doesn't Sink)
well, my wisdom teeth are out and my face is all swollen up like crazy, but mostly i feel okay, just it hurts to eat and talk and things like that. we got the pigs to-day, two lovely red tamworths named rogue and gambit--they have already escaped twice, driving maria to tears, but at the moment they are snoozing in their strawbed in the hoghouse, so that is a small merciful thing.

maria and i are watching the iron man animated series from '94 and it is quite marvellous, especially now that the first season is done and we are watching the second season. also, it is the most slashy thing ever, not even funny ("jim i can't let you go off half-cocked" "oh, don't worry, i'm FULLY COCKED" lolwhut), so i promised her that i would write tony/jim when we finished up. which reminds me that i still haven't posted my nick fury/wolverine:wolverine/captain america x-men: evolution fanfic.

also, we found a home for lucky, the kitten from the barn. her new name will be molly. the last kitten we rehomed was renamed sam. if we end up doing another one and it gets called ken or larry or something, i will be on the phone with [ profile] skaryma, let me tell you what.

i think i am okay.
psalm_onethirtyone: (You Done Good)
So I've started watching True Blood, and I actually really like it, although I wasn't sure that I would. The main girl is sort of--not wholly Innocent, more like just Super Nice. Almost a Holy Fool type. Which obviously I am a sucker for. She's kind of like Percy but with telepathy and being a different person. I thought she might annoy me, but she actually seems fresh and honest enough about it that I quite like her.

And I pretty much thought I wouldn't like the main fellow either, since he is all broody and emo and sexified, kind of Edward Cullen but older and non-sparkly, but he actually turned out pretty good too. Also, the way he sort of smiles and blossoms when he's interacting with the main girl's grandma and being a friendly Southern gentleman is adorable and really winning.

And Sam Trammell is adorable and the reason I started watching the series in the first place, oh my stars. &hearts

The bad thing is that all the supporting characters (except the grandma and Sam Trammell) really irritate me to death and I really don't like them. But I am only two episodes in, so possibly they'll grow on me. I rented the whole first season for our trip to Tennessee for Nana and Granddad's memorial service Thursday.

The other really nice thing about the series is that it is just so good to hear characters with thick Southern accents who are not being portrayed as either evil or stupid rednecks. There is a HUGE anti-Southern tendency in our media, and I can't help feeling twitchy about it, given my background. For me, Southern accents have always been comforting and normal and part of life, and the fact that in the past year 90% of the Southern accents I have encountered in media are for bad or ignorant people really bothers me. And if I hear another joke about how all the folks in Tennessee are trying to kill black people in between sleeping with their sisters, I may have an aneurysm.

IN OTHER NEWS, I saw a mother turkey hen with a bunch of poults on my way to Newport this morning. Also, Maria and I did our hive inspection and the bees are doing fantastic; their second hive body is full of honey. ALSO, I am volunteering at Vacation Bible School as part of my pastoral internship, and it went really well to-day. The kids were total sweethearts. I am kind of scared of little kids, inasmuch as I am terrified of doing something moronic/traumatising around them, but things were actually really okay! So that was nice.

Thursday, as I say, we are going to Tennessee for a week, so I will be MIA.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Dye My Eyes and Call Me Pretty)
I am planning my untimely death from pre-school nerviness. The professors, they keep sending me e-mails! I have to write down all this stuff and I haven't got a notebook here with me! Ngggah. Also my God no one sells Diet Dr. Pepper it is completely immoral and barbaric.

But the sunsets here are really nice. The lake tends to turn white from the light shining off it, and it stretches pretty far, white and still and shining.

Maria finally stopped getting angry at me; we've been watching loads of X-Men: Evolution, and it's cheered her up unbelievably. It's so nice to have her reasonably happy again. And to-morrow we're going home; I'll pack up the last of my things and by Sunday afternoon I should be settled in at school again, which I'll be glad to be. I think most of anything I hate transitioning. I don't mind changes, and I have a hard time feeling displaced; I sort of make where-ever I am my home; but I really, really hate travelling to get there, or the jittery feeling you get when something's about to change but hasn't gotten around to it yet. Ugh ugh.

I think the Depakote might be working, though. The screaming in my head has gone away, and I don't really feel as angry any more. I still get irritated and stressed out, but I'm not just absolutely furious at everyone. So! Little forward steps.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Mattress Sheep!)
1. I watched the DS9 episode [ profile] erinpuff sent me. Oh Mr. Siddig. I love you SO much I can't stand it. It's just not fair for a man to be that inhumanly attractive, akfjsafjs. Also adorkable, I mean. Honestly. A young beardless Alexander Siddig playing a doctor playing JAMES BOND oh dear god I love him so much. And then at the end Qarak's all, "so I suppose you're going to be putting away this fantasy" and he's all "HELL NO". oh man. I love him so much it's not even funny.

2. I have CSI season three! and these are my last three days at home before adirondacks+school. So I have nineteen episodes to watch before Friday. CAN I DO IT? probably. Expect me to get nothing done, I will be camped in my room with Gary Dourdan and Jorja Fox for the next seventeen hours. Oh God Mr. Dourdan dreadlocked his afro, it is ridiculously cute ARGH. Why is Television turning me straight?

...I think that's my new conspiracy. MOTHERS, TELL YOUR DAUGHTERS. Corruption and filth and adorable male leads! Television will corrupt the minds of young bisexuals! Idek.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Hear that Meta?)
Riddle me this, Batflist. Why is every volume of X-Men: Evolutions available on at a reasonable price except Volume 2, Season 1?

Shppfff. Way to make my life hard, internets.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Try Again To-morrow)
O, flist, what did I do to-day? I will give you a hint: it was disgusting. I will give you another hint: it involved maggots. I will give you a third hint: it involved turkeys, and their nests, and their habit of squashing their eggs and then sitting on them anyway.

O, flist, I may never be the same.

On the plus side, finally watched the Merlin episode I have had on my computer for months and months and months, and it was hilarious. Oh, Mr. Siddig, you are the love of my life, you and your goofiness and your hawt hawt beard and your clearly hamming it up for the camera liek whoa, and your shortness and how cute you look with scars and furs. Ee eee eee. Also, Arthur was a dork and I have to say that the chainmail was not flattering. But CUTE. But MR. SIDDIG. Eeee. "RARR RARR I AM A BIG SCARY VILLAIN AND I WILL BE ALL VILLAINOUS AND SMACK BABIES! HA HA! SMACK SMACK! CHECK OUT MY RAD BARBARIAN ARMOUR. NOW I WILL DO SOME PILLAGING!" ♥ ♥ guh.

Also, have kind of a crush on Sendil Ramamurthy.

I need to bicycle to-morrow. Something in the open air, fast and fresh and flying and far, far away from maggoty nesting boxes. I'm so tired of stagnation. I want to be fleet.
psalm_onethirtyone: (And She'll Go Mad)
Dear Mr Tartaglia:

I really have no idea who you are, except that you are on a quite good children's television programme called Johnny and the Sprites, which I sometimes see when I'm at the gym, and that you make wonderful, wonderful faces. And that when you finished that one song, 'Rules are Made for a Reason', you struck a Freddie Mercury pose.

That's reason enough for me to love you, really. I just wanted to let you know.

Love, Soujin


In other news, LJ isn't sending me comment notifications again.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Moby-Dick)
Open Letters! :D

Dear Doctor of Soujin's Eyes:

You are a very lovely man, you are. And thank you for the glasses cleaning cloth (moss green! *accessorises*) and the helpful comments and the fact that you look like a platypus and therefore always make my day better. However, there are a few problems in your office that I think you should be aware of.

Firstly, the young man who is evidently your new employee. You seem to be under the impression that he is an eye doctor. Unfortunately, he is actually an expert in medieval torture. I think you should look into this.

Secondly, that little film in the waiting room about OptoMap is clearly a pretty nifty idea. It lets patients into a new way of preserving their eye health, and it does so in an interesting, colourful way that shows a little bit of the history and potential. But. If you continue to put it on repeat, you will need to get your patients out of the waiting room a whole lot quicker, because after the sixty-third time around, even a really nice person wants to stab little Lief Anderson and his smart dad. And that's just wrong.

Thirdly, put some restraints on the torturer. He's wasting your yellow eye-goo. I know because he used it on me far too frequently and for no identifiable purpose, which can only mean that he's decided to ruin your reputation by leaving you eye-gooless during some emergency. Imagine!, Doctor of Soujin's Eyes. There you are, in the middle of an important procedure, and suddenly the nurse yells 'GET THE EYE-GOO!'. You look to the torturer, and he looks back with guileless eyes, and says, "I'm sorry, sir. I used it all on Soujin to make her cry'. The patient, even under heavy anesthetic, lets out an audible gasp. What people will think! Clearly this is a bad thing. I suggest immediate action.

By the way, thank you for finding out what's wrong with my eyes!

Love, Soujin ♥

Dear Mr. Adams:

Lost is a shiny show, from what I've seen of it; so I'm prepared to trust you. <3 However, Matt Daemon as Captain Kirk? Also, as much as I am totally in love with Adrian Brody's nose, I do not think he is the best choice for Mr. Spock. At all. Please look into this, just for me? And fire the person who's doing your casting. >_>

Love, Soujin ^__^

Dear Gentleman who is Designing our New House:

Please stop coming to dinner. ;___;

Wibbles, Soujin

Thank you all for your kind attention...! ♥

P.S. Over the past week I have had to subsist almost entirely on peanut butter. I do like peanut butter a great deal, but not in subsisting quanities. I reallyreally need to go shopping. *shifty eyes* Because I sense that lunch to-day, like breakfast, is going to involve a peanut butter sandwich.

And we are not amused. -_-
