ugh, just rewatched The Dark Knight. Remember that time they made Gordon's son the focus of all his concerns, and Gordon's son the one who wants to know about Batman, and Gordon's son the one with all the lines, instead of, oh, I don't know, BARBARA?!?!

Nolan, for serious.

The Abhorsen Trilogy:
In a conversation with [ profile] koalathebear here, where she briefly outlines why people should read the Abhorsen Trilogy, it occurred to me that I once wrote Abhorsen fic, and never mentioned it here. So I shall link it now: A Time For, about Sabriel and the bells and the time after Rogir. And it's not the best I've ever written (and was written about thirteen months ago), but there. I've linked it now.

The Abhorsen Trilogy is a trilogy of books set in The Old Kingdom, where there is magic and old spirits. Sabriel is sent to live across the wall in Anclestierre as a child, because away from the Old Kingdom magic does not work as well, and her father wanted her to learn and be safe. Anyway, that makes it sound lame, but the first book, Sabriel, was the seminal book of my high school years. I read it when I was thirteen, and I was obsessed from that point on with the science fiction (and fantasy) section of my local library. So. I just want to put that out there.

[ profile] koalathebear has a whole lot of caps and also some thoughts.

A whole set of promotional pictures

I don't know how I feel about this. A Cedric and Cho fanfiction page that has what seems to be a complete list of links to fics written about Cho and Cedric. And I suppose it's like me compiling my lists or whatever, but still, it throws me a little to see links to my fics there.
ALSO, on that note, why is that Out from Under is specifically listed as "Cho's POV"? Why does that need to be specified? It is a Cho and Cedric page! Why is primacy then given to Cedric's POV? HELLO HP FANDOM WE'RE STILL HAVING ISSUES HERE.

AND I want you to talk about Christmas. I am not Christian (if pressed, I'm unlikely to actually talk about my religion at all), but I celebrate Christmas as a time to eat non-stop, get presents, and give presents, and not go to work. I watch A Muppet Christmas Carol at my parents' house with my sister, and The Nightmare before Christmas at my own house. I have lots of picnics and lunches with friends, and become obsessed with making something or other. This year's obsession is making things out of felt (there will be pictures in a bit). On Boxing Day I go to see a movie, and this year there will be more seeing of family and having lunches on that day, too. So, waffle about yours for a moment.

In conclusion, I wrote Narnia fic last night, and I am writing another one now, and you can't have any of it because Claira is at work, and therefore cannot beta it yet. The end.

Fic rec, I suppose: Not Your Every Day Infatuation. NC-17, the most wacked pairing ever. Seriously. Read it.
And Eighteen, a Katie/Robert fic. Dee fails for not bringing this to my attention.
Uh, more fic: a thing about Blaise that Kassie wrote, containing the awesome paragraph of “I was being reflexively negative. I’m sure that if you’ve all kept yourselves alive, then you will probably continue to. But if Potter leads the attack on Lucius, I’m hiding behind you.” The reflex to brighten Longbottom’s mood strikes Blaise as a fundamental shift in his personality. He’s going native. As well as this: You’re becoming very direct and obnoxious. Are there Hufflepuffs in your little cabal? which sums up Hufflepuffs perfectly (I love Hufflepuffs to distraction, at the moment).

Artwork of Jadis, before she became the White Witch. Absolutely stunning artwork.

A Note:
There's one of those memes going around, one of those, if you're reading this, if your eyes are passing over this, even if we never speak memes, and every time I see them, I always think that it's so delightfully worded that the intention is to guilt me.


It's not yet December (hour and a half away), but the promise I made to myself was that I could post my wishlist when I finished it, so long as I was thoughtful about every wish. I've been composing this list for three weeks now, so I think that's pretty damn thoughtful. Also I'm sad, and I think posting it will cheer me up.

If you've never heard of the Fandom Wishlist, I can't be bothered looking for the link but it was started by [ profile] tartanshell, and basically, you post your list, and then surf around lj and look at other people's lists, and fill as many wishes as you can/want to.

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE fic or icons of the following:

1. Katie Leung/Robert Pattinson (HP)RPF. OMG SHUT IT.
2. Zoey/Charlie (from the West Wing). A happy ending.
3. CJ and Toby (also TWW, but DUH) have been friends for years and years, through all sorts of shit, and not seeing eachother, and all the rest. My heart got broken a couple of weeks ago by this pairing, and I want someone to fix it for me, because CJ and Toby are my OTP to end all OTPs. It cannot end this way.
4. Chloe and Lex (Smallville) taking over the world.
5. Michael and Nikita (from LFN) in the Colonial Fleet. Any LFN fic at all, actually.
6. Miss Parker and Jarod, and the battles they fight that they will never, ever win (OMG The Pretender I LOVE YOU).
7. Karl/Miranda (LotRPF). Fun and light and so fucking easy going. There will never be a list of requests, written by me, that will not feature this pairing. I find it hard to believe I don't have an icon of Miranda, but there you go.
8. Music.
9. Anything about Cho Chang. Or the Hufflepuffs. Or Ravenclaw.
10. Penguins

The end. Go to bed. Do not pass go. Do not collect two hundred dollars.

Today I hit 200 friends of. I'd like to do something special, like offer to write fic for everyone, but a) i do that every day anyway, and b) to make a big deal of it seems kind of wanky. This particular journal has been in existence for just over a year, but I've been on LJ for about four years now. I was a big fat dork then, and I'm a big fat dork now, so whatever.

I owe several people comments, and I owe one person a beta. I am actually, really sorry that I suck at any sort of meaningful correspondence, but I've been so busy this weekend, that it was a struggle to post today's [ profile] galacticanews. Of course, busy as I was, that didn't stop me from reading Wisteria's Arrested Development/BSG crossover, or ranting at people, so I guess it's just a matter of prioritising. I tend to do the low thought necessary work first, and then the stuff that requires more thinking later. Hence betaing and replying to comments gets left behind. But I will get to it. All of it. Tomorrow, hopefully.

OMG Yuletide. I should start that, so I'll probably be trying not to write anything else until that's done.

I have a bunch of links I'd like to share, but before I do, I'd like to make a special mention of [ profile] koalathebear, who is a delight to read, and makes me feel guilty about Being Chinese and Not Speaking Mandarin Very Well. Tomorrow, in an effort to actively make myself a better person, instead of reading HP+HBP at work, I will be reading HP+PS in Chinese. (PS KoalaTheMarsupial: icons from Muppet Christmas Carol. Text is a bit crap, but the bases are lovely, and I thought of you)

Okay. So.

There is no possible way for Katie Leung to get any cuter.
AWESOME miscellaneous icons

I'd like to recommend One Taste of the Apple by Brynn. I hate her because she is so fucking talented. Awesome pre-series Apollo and Starbuck fic.
You know BSG has been renewed for third season, right? Of course you know, because you all watch [ profile] galacticanews.

I can't even describe how awesome this is, but if you're into DCU you should check it out.
I accidentally wrote a treatise on Gotham City and Smallville over here in Kassie's journal, which I reproduce in its entirety for you now:

I made an entire post filled with recs of fic and links to my fic some weeks back ESPECIALLY FOR YOU, so I feel my contribution to this post should consist of nothing but me rambling on about how I love Chloe and Lex and Bruce, and how Clark/Lex is just doom.

And Thus:

Chloe was made for Gotham City. She loves everything about it, from the freaky architecture to the way its villains get in amongst the mess and wear masks and are actually snobs who all have sex with oneanother. Batman is the worst of the lot, being all vigilante and holier than thou when he is CLEARLY fucking Catwoman. Years and years ago, Bruce Wayne had something (something like fucking) (in college) with Lex, but then Bruce disappeared and Lex went to Smallville, and by the time Bruce got back their interests had clearly diverged. They both wanted power, sure, but Lex was far more willing to admit it than Bruce was. Bruce started expending all his energy on cleaning up Gotham, and Lex started nobly: he wanted to clean up the world.

I got distracted. Chloe loves Gotham. She loves being a journalist there, because it's just like Smallville only it's dirtier, has no Lois and Clark, and she gets to have sex with a lot of people.

Have you read medie's post about Chloe that she made yesterday?

In conclusion, Chloe is her own woman, but one day she'll have a lot of sex with Bruce Wayne, discover his secret, and help Lex take over the world. The End.

And for those of you who are not Kassie, and so may not have been paying attention, the post I refer to above of recs and fic is here.

I hate everyone for seeing GoF before me, but it doesn't open for another two weeks here, so.
Tokyo Press Conference (also here). A whole lot of Katie and Robert and Emma. My favourites are this one and this one. Also this one and this one, because seriously. Katie is still the most beautiful person in the whole world, and I'm glad to see Katie and Robert are OTP again. Also, when LJ goes down at some point this morning, those delightful girls [ profile] indilime and [ profile] voodoo_in_tx will be posting updates here.
As you all noticed, yesterday I wrote some HP premiere!fic (linked for those who missed it). Where is all the rest of it? I want to read about Dan in the back of the bus, and Rupert in the toilets and Emma and just. HP FANDOM YOU ARE LETTING ME DOWN.
Also for those who missed it, my new lj layout features the Yule Ball scene from GoF, because it is AWESOME.

There is an anthology coming out about geek life. You can still submit if you'd like.
The Female Gen ficathon. Multi-fandom. Go forth and write about women.
The Simpsons/Neverwhere crossover. No, seriously.
One of the mascots for the 2008 Olympic Games. Yesterday I watched The Cutting Edge instead of going training, because I was sick, and seriously, I need to stop watching movies where they go to the Olympics, otherwise I will make myself sick over the fact I will never get that far in my sport. Anyway, I digress, but I need an icon of this image.
