Eh, figured after posting fic here for a couple years it was about time to do one of these.  And it makes me feel a little better about my current blockage.

I have written fic for Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, and Buffyverse, plus crossovers including the three aforementioned fandoms as well as Doctor Who, Lost, Discworld, Dead Like Me, Sandman, Donnie Darko, and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Yes, you read that right.  I wrote Dollhouse fic.  I haven't seen the show in ages, nor have I so much as glanced at the fandom, so I hope this is A) in character and B) not retreading well-trodden territory.

Dear Chuck,

While I very much appreciate the ASOIAF reference, NOBODY is going to believe that tiny little book you were reading was actually Game of Thrones.  


(If you didn't notice/forgot because the episode aired ages ago, Chuck was reading a book at the dining room table and said something like "Oh Eddard, don't give your kid a direwolf!")

Last night I dreamed that I was watching a musical episode of Community.  When I woke up, I had "Dancing Queen" stuck in my head because Pierce had been singing it.  Needless to say, I was quite disappointed to realize that I had been dreaming.

I watched the actual episode of Community.  It was good.  I liked it.  But I still wish it had been a musical.

Game of Thrones: The Kingsroad

I have forgotten so much from the first book (in my defense, it's been at least 6 years since I read it last).  The plus side: certain things were surprising!  spoilery for the second episode and the first book )

I so need an icon.  But I can't decide if I want one of Arya, Tyrion, or Dany.  Or any of the characters that I love (which is ALL OF THEM).  Such a dilemma!  I also can't decide which of my current icons to ditch.  #firstworldproblems

ETA: Guest appearance from Shah's dad (via email): "Oh, and I HATE HATE HATE that sniveling arrogant tiny-toothed Joffrey." 

I also watched the new Doctor Who but can't really think of anything to say so I'll just wait until the second part.  I liked it but I'm a tad confused.  Also my friend kept trying to talk to me while I was watching it, so I kind of missed some things.  One of which, I have since learned, was extremely significant.

Remix fics have been revealed, which means I get to claim my fic!  It amused me greatly to look at people's guesses from the poll.  I am apparently a tad transparent.  Anyhoo.  Enough chit-chat.

Best thing that has happened to me all week: discovering HBO GO.  I've been quietly freaking out about how to pirate GoT, to the point where I actually had an extremely stressful dream last week in which I couldn't find any links.  I was very upset.  So last night I was poking around the HBO website (trying to find out if they were going to put the episodes up on iTunes) and discovered that since my father has an HBO subscription, I can sign in as him and watch the episodes online!  I almost watched the episode right then and there (they put it up immediately!  Unbelievable) but I had to be up in 8 hours and I knew I wouldn't be able to fall asleep afterward.

Fic rec!

You guys!  Someone remixed my silly little Kara-takes-ballet fic!  And it's awesome.  So run (do not walk) over to [ profile] bsg_remix  and read Storm the Court (Touch of Grace Remix).  I have not read all of the fics that have been posted yet, but I've thoroughly enjoyed all of the ones that I have seen.  One of my favorite things about the remix is how it really gets people reading and commenting on work that they might not have read otherwise either because it wasn't about their favorite characters/pairings or because they didn't know the author (I'm definitely guilty of this in my little Kara-corner).  Also, I had so much fun doing yesterday's [ profile] the_wireless  update because there was so much fic!  And it wasn't all A/R!

I made a dreamwidth (same username) just for safe keeping (even though I have multiple backups of all my fic, I'm a crazy egotistical person who likes re-reading posts and comments).  I don't plan on posting over there (ever) though, so don't worry about me abandoning you all for another site.  
shah_of_blah: (kara sunshine)
This is completely out of the blue and may not interest you at all, but I wanted to share the incredible news--I'm not angry about BSG anymore!  I mean yeah, I'm still uber-critical of seasons 3 and 4 and that whole destiny thing, but that's okay.  I'm uber-critical of lots of things that I love (*coughdoctorwhocough*).  But in recent weeks, I have been filled with an overwhelming desire to rewatch EVERYTHING.  I think it all started when I read RDM's show bible and caught a case of nostalgia.  Even more than that, though, I am just filled with incredible affection for this show.  You know how I know?  Because a few weeks back, I read this list of the Top 50 Science Fiction Television Shows of All Time and I actually agreed with their assessment of BSG!  (Not that I agree with that list in its entirety--for one thing, Farscape is shockingly absent)

Anyway, yeah, just wanted to share.  I'm over my finale rage!  Two years after the fact.  Yay me.  I might even, dare I say it, be getting my squee back.  

P.S. I cannot wait for [ profile] bsg_remix  to start posting!

This post brought to you by me putting off all the stuff I really ought to be doing.
shah_of_blah: (river)
I made my first post as the new mod for [ profile] the_wireless .  So, you know...there's that.  Fun times.

To cheer myself up, I have been watching The IT Crowd in my copious amounts of free time.  I have to tell you, flist, Moss is my hero.  The s4 episode "Final Countdown" made me ridiculously happy.  ETA: I am watching the next episode and OMG Roy is wearing a Dinosaur Comics t-shirt!  I'm so proud of myself for knowing what one of his t-shirts was about.

Other things making this shitty week less shitty:
-Rewatching all of the Game of Thrones promos and wishing it were April 17 already.
-The knowledge that Community and Parks and Recreation have both been renewed!
-Katee accidentally starting a #thingsstarbuckwouldntsay meme on twitter.  "Oh, Baltar!"  Hahaha.  (Not that I am on twitter.  I just engage in some harmless Katee Sackhoff stalking.  Like you do.)
-This music video: She Don't Like Firefly.  My version would be "He Didn't Like Chiwetel Ejiofor's Performance in Serenity" or something like that.  True story.

P.S. [ profile] help_japan  auctions are still going on (and my thread is here)!

Help Japan

shah_of_blah: (martha)
I am offering fanfiction for [ profile] help_japan; you may find my thread HERE.

I will write drabbles or ficlets for just about any fandom I know. I listed BSG (obviously), Whedonverse, Doctor Who, Community, and Wonderfalls, but if there's something else you want, ask here or in the auction thread and I'll let you know if I can swing it. If I've seen it, I'm probably willing to write for it.

I feel a bit silly asking people to donate money and then only giving them 100 words in exchange, but I don't have the time to commit to more than something short right now. And I wanted to do something. However, I will do my very best to make sure they are 100 great words.

So my beloved TV boyfriend TROY BARNES just won [ profile] f_march_madness , and I am absolutely thrilled!  I completely underestimated fandom at large when I filled out my bracket.  Even though I didn't actually participate beyond the simple act of voting, I enjoyed this year's competition so much.  Everyone was so nice.  The best part was reading all of the comments on Troy vs. the Doctor and seeing tons of people saying that they had been inspired to watch Community/Doctor Who because of the comm and the wonderful campaigning.  How awesome is that?

In the immortal words of our victor, "Huzzah!"

Also, my sister and I recently purchased the Game of Thrones card game and OH MY GOD SO FUN.  It's super complicated and a tad confusing.  Took us several hours just to begin playing, and then our first game was spread out over three days.  But we've got a better grasp of it now (mostly) and it's pretty much the greatest thing I've ever played.  Even better than Settlers of Catan and Lord of the Rings Risk.  You play as one of four Houses (Stark, Baratheon, Targaryen, and Lannister) and so far I have decided that the Lannisters are the most fun.  They're all a bunch of sneaky bastards and it's awesome.
shah_of_blah: (bees!)
I am sad (though not remotely surprised) that Kara lost to Buffy in the first round, but if Buffy doesn't trounce Spock I will be thoroughly disappointed in fandom. Seriously. I was surprised to see Aeryn lose to someone from Being Human. Very disappointing. I didn't know people even watched that show... ETA: Leslie Knope and Dexter Morgan are currently losing their respective races. PLEASE FIX THIS TERRIBLE INJUSTICE, FANDOM.

Three memes snagged from [ profile] daybreak777 :

books )

movies )

And lastly, a fic meme!

If you had to delete all but five of your stories, which five would you keep and why? (Or ten if you prolific)

The Breath Between: I worked frakking hard on this one.  For a long frakking time.  It's my longest completed bsg fic to date, and I'm quite proud of it, so yeah, I'd keep it! 

Portraits: My ode to Kara Thrace.  I feel like this piece says more than the majority of my other fics.  And it's got mythology!  I could never throw this one away, not when it's all about how awesome my girl is.

The Disappearing Ground: Well.  Yeah.  This one isn't perfect (none of them are, obviously, but there's one huge glaring flaw in this one that I long to fix every time I reread it).  Still, I wrote it because I really needed to, and I'm very attached to it.  The last two lines might be the best thing I've ever written.

Say Anything At All: Five times Kara said something she didn't mean to say (but not necessarily something she didn't mean).  This is just my big ol' gen Kara fic that's actually a bit shippy, but you know.  From childhood to 4.5.  It was a lot of fun to write, and yeah, I'm proud of it.

Five Times Kara Told Someone She Missed Them: Like Portraits, I think of this story as trying to say something, which might be a bit surprising given the brevity and the format.  Five short scenes that illustrate Kara's evolution over the years through the way she relates to others.
shah_of_blah: (troy)
Eh, you know.  Because I can.  But first, a quick question for my flist, inspired by the song I am listening to right now: if I were to buy just one season of Bear McCreary's BSG soundtracks, which would you recommend? I only have one song right now. It is 'Kara Remembers' from Someone to Watch Over Me and I downloaded to help me write certain scenes in The Breath Between.

Community: set phasers to "love me" )

Parks and Recreation: i just like this show so much )

Chuck: spoilers for CAT Squad )

Farscape: most of the way through season 3 )

Also I have seen the new Game of Thrones preview and IT LOOKS SO BEYOND AMAZING.  That is all.

Oh yeah, and I have been rewatching The Education of Max Bickford.  I don't know what it is about this show (besides, you know, the Sackhoff element) that inspires me to rewatch it annually.  Someday I will write a big post about it.  But not this day.

I watched the Oscars too, of course.  I always do, even though they're not actually that interesting.  But this year I was just sad that my beloved True Grit got robbed.  I mean, I liked The King's Speech.  And I loved Colin Firth's acceptance speech.  That award was well deserved.  But I am sort of fundamentally apathetic about the British monarchy.  It's not like he wrote the speech, you know.   Yeah yeah, not the point, whatever.  I wasn't surprised, just a little disappointed.
