About this journal

I pretty much exclusively use this lj for posting fannish work and glee. Lots of my fannish writing is explicit, and I often don't post content warnings, so be aware before you read. I don't post that regularly, mostly just when I have something new to share, and I don't post locked, so I don't friend back -- I don't like filtering, so my flist is just what I'm reading right at this moment in time.

You don't have to ask to friend or defriend my journal, or to link to anything I post, or to crit my stuff, or to make sequels/podfics/fanart/whatever based on it, etc. As long as credit is given, you don't need my permission.

I WOULD especially love it if you post your work on the Archive of Our Own (http://ao3.org) and cite my original story as a related work there, because then I can easily link back to you from the original story. :D

If you make a translation/remix/etc of one of my things and don't have an AO3 account, I have invites, just PM me your email address for one, and if it's for one of my stories that isn't on the AO3 yet, let me know and I'll put it up so you can link it.



PS: anon commenting is disabled here on my livejournal because I was getting badly spammed. You can comment anon on my Dreamwidth journal instead if you want.

Harry Potter Fanworks imzy comm & thoughts about Imzy

I have set up a Harry Potter Fanworks community to have a place to post things, and they gave me MORE invites, so come here either to join the comm or to get an Imzy invite (or just to see the awesome banner lim made me):

http://imzy.com/hpfanworks

Also, Yuletide is officially on Imzy at http://imzy.com/yuletide_admin!

Re Imzy, I feel like I have gotten the vibe of the place and I generally like it. I have heard that their main concept was to be reddit without all the horrible, and it is oriented around communities and ephemeral conversation. It is definitely better for conversations and knowing who is who and what they are saying than Tumblr, and I might like it better than journaling, we'll see. I'm waiting to see mainly how they handle notifying people of activity because that will determine how conversations flourish.

Also right now the flood of notifications and automated imzy posts about how many people are in! your! community! is wildly annoying and creating a lot of noise that drowns out the actually interesting signal of conversations I want to pay attention to, but the volume is clearly related to heaps of us trying it out at once.

And they are of course a commercial startup and if it goes amazing then in five years it gets sold, and if it doesn't then in five years it gets shut down, but because it's ephemeral conversation, I don't mind so much. It's clearly not a place to archive anything, but hey, that's what AO3 is for anyway.

Imzy

Hey so I just have seen that a thing people seem to be doing on imzy is making self-named comms to post their stuff in? So here is mine:

https://www.imzy.com/astolat

It doesn't quite make sense to me yet, I haven't actually USED it for anything other than posting one test notification (for a new little Dragon Age story I posted on AO3 which I have been too lazy to post anywhere else yet), but I am there! Also I got a heap of invites as a result of creating a comm, so if you want one, just go here:

https://www.imzy.com/astolat/request-invite Hey guys I'm out of invites under astolat, but still have them here:

https://imzy.com/hpfanworks/request-invite

(I will not be at all upset if you leave the comm after you get the account approved!)

and put in your email and I'll approve asap.

[VID] Fast & Furious: Lust for Life (Club Vivid Premiere)

Club Vivid had a T-Rex and a Ghostbuster; really, does anything more need to be said?

Here's my CV premiere vid! Brian from Fast & Furious, to Iggy Pop's Lust for Life (because I listen to [personal profile] cesperanza) <3



Now off to in-depth vid review where we'll be talking about Aphrodisiac and also the Agent Carter vid Guts by [personal profile] sweetestdrain! And then the Challenge vids! whoo

Vividcon Premieres and [VID] You Are A Runner And I Am My Father's Son (HP, Draco POV)

GUYS how great was that show! SO GREAT! I have stayed up too late chatting and am wiped, but I am still buzzing and happy with how awesome the whole show was. There was not a single real dud for me, and I think it's because as I said after, even though not every vid was a vid of MY heart, it felt to me clearly that every vid came from SOMEONE'S heart.

My own heart-favorites were (unsurprisingly) sisabet's Clark/Lex vid in which they HAVE A BABY TOGETHER (it's not like that's straight from my id or anything cough), as well as the fantastic vid Satisfied for Underground by [personal profile] serrico, which was just a solid, straight-to-the-gut punch of a vid. Brilliant. I also really liked hollywoodgrrl's Aphrodisiac which spoke to my own headcanon of the Force as something vaguely scary you can turn on but you can't necessarily turn off, and also [personal profile] gwyn and [personal profile] cesperanza's Hallo Spaceboy Captain America vid, and milly's awesome The Martian vid to Pompeii.

But honestly, this year it's like picking from an embarrassment of riches. I can't wait to discuss ALL the vids tomorrow and I am full of glee. \o/ So much awesome Star Wars, all different! Jessica Jones! Scooby Doo! Dragon Age! haha I literally wept with laughter at the Sims vid. Such a terrific variety of types of vids also.

And here is MY vid, which will shock ALL OF YOU A LOT by being a Harry Potter vid (Draco POV, and Harry/Draco in my own head anyway).



Download link on the AO3, and tumblr post! Heaps of thanks to Ces for betaing, and as always all fb loved. :)

And now I am going to fall into bed! YAY

Vividcon! \o/

I have crammed my computer full of source, I have tested out Camtasia Studio and it works a treat, so I will be able to record either our glorious success or epic failure in One Hour Vid, I have packed a variety of outfit options for Club Vivid and ALL the chargers, I have uploaded my THREE vids to youtube for release, and I am leaving for the airport in an hour!

Can't wait to see many of you there! <3 My plane lands ~6ish local time actually, not 7 as I confusedly thought, so will be at the hotel by 6:30, yay.

Harry Potter: Slithering (Harry/Draco)

With many thanks to [personal profile] cesperanza! Also I want to mention that this was initially inspired by the current hd_fan_fair which has the theme "pets" going, but I missed the deadline to post my own prompt *facepalm*. But claiming prompts is still open, so if you want ideas, head over there, or watch the comm for the stories! :D

Ghostbusters

Just a quick PSA: if you go to Ghostbusters (which I rec! it is not quite as brilliant as the original, but that's a seriously high bar since it is one of the best comedies of all time, and it was good fun), stay for the credits! Aside from the fact there are multiple in-credits scenes including one at the very end, the credits are actually for themselves just really fun and worth watching, especially if you're watching in 3D (which I normally hate, but am glad I went with this time).

Vividcon: One Hour Vid

So this year at Vividcon [personal profile] killabeez and I will be running a One Hour Vid panel! We're going to literally be making a vid AT the con, DURING the panel, with everyone who shows up!

To make this work (as well as it's ever going to! haha) we need to have all the source prepped in advance, SO:

* IF YOU ARE LIKELY COMING TO THE PANEL * please let us know what source you would like!

It is going to be a multifandom "garbage can" dance vid, and we're thinking the general theme of people being completely fed up.

Also, we have a song lined up, but if you've got a great garbage can song, do also feel free to share that with us and we may switch or even let people choose at the con, since the whole idea here is to kind of shut off the internal editor and bang it together really fast, as well as provide a demonstration for people who want to see vidding live either to learn or to compare techniques!

Incoming! also Lucifer: Redemption Merry-Go-Round (Lucifer/Chloe/Dan)

I seem to be on a finishing kick so I should probably mention for anyone subscribed to me anywhere that there are multiple stories incoming? Lucifer today, Merlin tomorrow (blast from the past!), HP sometime soon! Possibly more than one HP? IDK, we'll see! Sorry-not-sorry for the spam, haha.

Also if any of you are watching The Night Manager you should come talk to me about Pine/Roper (but don't spoil me past episode 3 yet plz! I am still working on it!) If you like Wiseguy, I think you will like this miniseries, and it's only six episodes, so I recommend! Also there is Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie being intense at each other, although tbh Olivia Coleman steals the whole thing and runs away with it to another continent.

X-Men Apocalypse

Saw it, mostly enjoyed doing so! Although there were many flaws, and two moments really pissed me off at the director and all parties involved spoilers with a bunch of complainingCollapse )

Anyway, that's all I got! I would totally go for some Charles/Erik, but that's not new. :>

small fandom kinkmeme!

pssst, check out [community profile] smallfandomkinkmeme and also you could maybe post prompts for Lucifer or Damien on the TV post there if, um, that were something you were interested in, not that I have mainlined both of these shows last weekend or anything.

(LOOK, I just agree with apparently casting directors everywhere that Bradley James needs to play characters who are ~destined~ for things. Good, evil, whatever. Also, if you haven't seen this gifset of Damien changing clothes in a car you probably want to.)

Lucifer meanwhile is weird because the show is kind of terrible but Lucifer is great and Chloe is great so I'm sort of carried along by the two of them. Although I am a bit wary of the writers stripping Lucifer's powers, because it feels weirdly like they're trying to move CLOSER to a boring police procedural instead of using that as a launching pad to move AWAY from. Just, I am not actually interested that much in "Detective Chloe and her wacky sidekick Lucifer the ex Prince of Hell fight random LA crime" -- I want the epic! I'm not sure what kind of show they think they're making yet and not positive that I want what they're going to make.

Actually what I want is spoilery for stuff that has happened story ramblingCollapse )

I also want the crossover with Damien where Det. Chloe gets sent to investigate suspected serial killer Damien Thorn who has just moved to LA--all, ha ha Decker, go take your wacky partner and check out this guy they say is the Antichrist.

Anyway there are also many other prompts on the comm popping up for other shows (and there are other posts for prompts for books and movies etc) and you should go there and add some! <3

“Yeah, thanks,” Harry said, because he hadn’t just spent the last week contemplating just how much more horrible his summer holidays were about to be than they’d ever been before.
