Yaay! Jack Strify made his crowdfunding goal and his new album, ILLUSION, has been fully funded! For some reason the PledgeMusic page still says the campaign is at 99%, but he's assured fans that the goal has been met - in fact, exceeded - and the album is happening. Check out the track METROPOLIS they released as enticement for preorders. If you find you're interested, you can still preorder at the PledgeMusic page right up to the release date.

On top of that, RightStuf has received its shipment of the Sailor Moon first season part 1 BluRay box sets, which will begin shipping to everyone who preordered soon! Eeeee I can't wait to get mine!

Also, one of the two pairs of boots I ordered came in yesterday. I was surprised to find that they're ACTUALLY thigh-high, rather than the more usual "claims to be thigh-high while actually only being knee-high, because everyone knows knee-highs only reach the middle of your shin anyway" style. Only problem is that actual thigh-highs might not pair well with some of my skirts. Still, I'm glad to have them, especially with colder weather coming.

Meanwhile, Yuletide signups have closed and the matching system is chugging away, getting everyone set up with a recipient for November (or possibly earlier? :D :D). I've been browsing the Dear Yuletide Writer letters for treat prompts in the meantime and planning out a few possibilities. I'm still a little nervous that I might not pull off my NaNoWriMo goal, but the treat-planning process has helped, and maybe I'll get lucky and one of my planned treat recipients will turn out to be my assigned recipient. :D

Much excitement!

Just for today, one of the very few days in my calendar that doesn't have a ton of stuff scheduled into it, I'm got nothing but writing planned, and I'm doing it in a friend's space. It's nice -- messy, but nice. I hope the new location will be conducive to getting some words onto the page (screen).

Monday Night

Gotham :) )

Sleepy Hollow :D)D)D)D)D ) Also, Boom Studios is putting out a comic and I subscribed. Issue one was pretty good. It's other adventures, not rehashing the TV episodes.

Jane the Virgin ))))))) )

Tuesday

The Flash :):) )

The Mindy Project :D )

Wednesday

Modern Family, I'm liking it, but I wouldn't be watching if it didn't come right before Blackish :):D:):D:):D:) )

I tried the premiere of American Horror Story: Freakshow and I felt like I was being punished. Punished.

Thursday

I am so on the bubble with Scandal. I still like the things I like about it (everyone but Fitz) but the things I hate have not gotten any better (Fitz).

How to Get Away With Murder is great, except Asher makes me want to punch things. I don't know what he's for on the show and I don't know why Analise picked him for her law practice. I love Connor and Michaela and Bonnie and Wes, though. Viola Davis is killing it. KILLING IT. (Not saying Analise has killed anyone, I'm talking about Ms. Davis' performance.)

Friday

Haven :/ )

One of exchanges I signed up for over the last few months was [community profile] rarecharacters! I received an Orphan Black fic about Helena and Grace, which has definitely whet my appetite for fic about their relationship!

Something to Live For (1047 words) by Sumi
Fandom: Orphan Black (TV)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Helena/Grace Johanssen, Helena & Grace Johanssen
Additional Tags: Canon Divergence
Summary: Helena leaned close towards Grace and roughly ran a hand through her sweat-slicked hair. “I never learn to drive. If I try and drive truck we will go ‘boom’!”

I also wrote one fic, about Ellen and Jo from Supernatural. I'm still bummed about their death, so it was fun to write them alive and well.

Taking the Risk (1260 words) by fenellaevangela
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Ellen Harvelle, Jo Harvelle
Additional Tags: Somebody Lives/Not Everyone Dies
Summary: Ellen and Jo made it out of the Apocalypse alive. The question is what to do now that the world hasn't ended.

Thank you so much! The thought of a story in any of these fandoms is already making me happy.

I'd really like something that falls on the warm / happy / fluffy / vanilla end of the spectrum, if possible. If that isn't something you can do, I understand! Just please no deathfic or loss of a loved one, including pets; and no terminal illnesses of any kind as an h/c or angst trope. Thank you. <3

I love all of these fandoms unreservedly, so if you have a yen to explore the universe, or bring in additional characters I didn't list, it's all good.

If you want more information about my requests, read on - but please don't worry if your ideas go in a different direction. Optional details are optional! I would much rather read the story you wanted to write than the story you felt you were obligated to write because of something I said. As long as it's for one of these fandoms, and uses the characters, you totally win at Yuletide. \o/

Why I love these fandoms

(Alphabetical, not ranked by preference! I love them all. :)

Burn Notice )

Grimm )

Voyagers! )

I adore all these fandoms, and will be happy with absolutely anything you write, as long as you enjoy writing it.

And thank you, again!!

Time and the Lack Thereof

lea_hazel: The outlook is somewhat dismal (Feel: Crash and Burn)
[personal profile] lea_hazel
I got back home from Jerusalem much later than I had planned because my parents had a cool houseguest. Consequently the morning was a lost cause but I dedicated much of the afternoon to sweeping and mopping the whole apartment. This is my least favorite house chore, both because it always leaves me tired, sweaty and gross-feeling, and because the apartment gets really nasty if I don't do it often enough. But I'm starting my first week at the new job with a clean floor and fresh linen, which seems auspicious.

Of course as a consequence of not waking up at my own place, and then later the mad rush of neatening and cleaning, I forgot to each a sensibly timed lunch. Now I'm going through a whole progress of figuring out what I can eat and where it can be acquired. I really wish I'd had the good sense to get more supplies for winter-style cooking. Not that I'd break open a bag of red lentils or pearl barley right now. But sooner or later I need to adjust to having foodable foods at home, and for the winter that's really the best stuff.

I wanted to do writing today but probably I will only do TV: How to Get Away with Murder, Haven, and probably/maybe The Flash.
