Role Play Activity

[dw] shades
Somewhere for me to keep track of my role play activity that happens off-muse-journal. Most of these are dear_mun posts, with some sixwordstories and dear_multiverse posts sprinkled in. Also logged are comm participations.

I tried to find all posts I made before the creation of this list (on 11/12/2011), but I'm fairly sure I didn't get them all. I will attempt to log all posts I make from now on.

Feel free to tag into any open post, no matter how old, if you are so inclined. Feel free to track this post, or, if you have a paid account, track the threads of specific muses you'd like to follow. I'm not a particularly active RPer, so even if you track this entire post, I doubt you'd get your inbox spammed too badly.


Yuletide 2011

[dw] shades
Dear Yuletide Author,

hello! Thank you for writing for me. :3 And thank you for making the effort to come here and take a look at my letter; I really do appreciate it.

Quick general overview of my fic likes and dislikes!

Likes: Love dramedy and realistic slice-of-life stuff. Love bittersweet endings, don't mind deathfic. Am ambiguous on fluff--it can be fun, but only if there's enough drama to balance it out. Love situational humor, especially if it's used to break up an otherwise tragic scene and underlines the emotional impact of what is happening. Love explicit fic, love BDSM to any level of kink, love intense, antagonistic relationships ('frenemies'). The thing that's most important to me, in fic, is character focus and character exploration. If there's decent character exploration, the fic can be pretty much about anything, I'll always enjoy it.

Dislikes: Improper spelling and grammar, imprecise personal pronoun referencing (I'd rather have the names used a large amount of times than everything being "he"), POV changes within a scene, characterization being compromised to serve the plot, character bashing of any kind, sexism or misogyny of any sort, generally characters displaying any sort of privilege without that being addressed critically. (If you want to address it critically, however, characters getting called out on their privilege would make me very happy.) Oh, and I'm not a fan of genderswitch.

Prompt details under the cut!Collapse )

That was a lot of text! If you already have an idea you'd like to go with, ignore me and write whatever it is you've come up with. I'm sure I'll love it, either way. :)

Good luck! <3

Gallifreyan Script, Thanksgiving, Yuletide

[dw] shades
Long time no update. I'm still around. I've been playing with tumblr a lot--I know, I know. I'm joining the legions abandoning LJ for more hipster-y pastures. I should try to update LJ more, but I don't really have a specific fandom at the moment, so I'm sort of disconnected from LJ, since I don't have anything to write fic for. I would vid, but I don't have my desktop PC with me at the moment. Also, that PC needs upgrading so badly. Anyway, this is why I'm playing with tumblr, not LJ. I have little fannish content to offer at the moment.

That said, I did make some Gallifreyan script images. Greencrook on tumblr came up with a Gallifreyan dictionary, and it's a lot of fun to take the basics that she's developed and fill in the blanks to create images of quotes.

Three quote images under the cut.Collapse )

Other than that, I'm still trying to find a job. Nothing new on that front. I don't know if I'm going to do Christmas cards this year. If anyone wants to send me a card, don't send it to the Southampton address; I don't live there anymore. Send it to my old address in Germany--if you don't know it, ping me and I'll let you know.

Yuletide! Anyone doing Yuletide on the reading list? I'm torn. I did it last year, and had a lot of fun writing for it, but the fic I received was not really what I'd been hoping for. And I don't really have any fandoms I'd want to request for or am desperate to read fic in, this year. The fic I wrote last year was based on something that I had sitting on my hard-drive, half-written--I don't have anything like that this year, so I'd have to start from scratch. But it's only 1,000 words. I could probably do 1,000 words? And I'd love to be forced to write something. Torn! I will decide eventually.

I will have a Jasper on Thanksgiving. :3 We found a cheap flight, so she's coming over from the morning of the 24th until the afternoon of the 27th. It'll be her, [personal profile] earlwyn, hobbits_feet and myself. There won't be turkey, but there will be chicken. And a fuck-ton of other food. And probably midori, because we're sad, sad fangirls. I'm looking forward to it.

So. How is everyone?

I've watched Sherlock, at long last. Until now, I was avoiding it, because it's Moffat, and Moffat's writing makes me want to kill puppies even though I like puppies, but I'm currently staying with [personal profile] earlwyn, who is a Sherlock Holmes fiend, and I'm unemployed and the DVD was there on the shelf and . . . well. I ended up watching it after all.

Contains spoilers for all three episodes, as well as criticism, so if you don't want to be spoiled/are an avid fan and don't like reading criticism of the show, please stop reading now.Collapse )

Signal Boost

[dw] shades
choukoumei has prints and posters left over from selling her art at a convention, and is trying to find buyers for them. She's nna on deviantArt, and draws in the style you can see in the pictures below.


Link to the blog post about the sale is here, which contains links to gallery images of all prints and posters on sale. I can't really tell which fandoms most of them are from, since they're animated fandoms, which I have very little involvement with, but they're pretty! I love how nna works with color and shapes. And there are two Doctor Who prints, one of which I'm probably going to snag a copy of. They're very reasonably priced, including both US and international shipping, so go and check it out and buy some pretty things!

Oh, and if you feel like signal boosting this signal boost, feel more than free to link to this entry, or to nna's sale page on deviantArt.

Fright Night

[dw] shades
So yesterday I went to see Fright Night with mind_the_tardis , sandsdream and earlwyn .

Brief review with some spoilers, as I don't have much time to type up something long. Lack of time is also why I'm not answering the comments to my last entry right now; I will get around to it, I promise.Collapse )

I'm sure I'd have more thoughts, but I gotta run. Any questions, squee, whatever, feel free to leave them in the comments. :)

Torchwood Miracle Day Episode 1

Photo Tumblr

[dw] shades
So, I'm not a photographer, but I like pointing my camera at things and clicking the button. Sometimes, pretty photos happen. So I've set up a photo tumblr at

I've got about 25 photos queued up to post one per day over the next month, and will then update sporadically whenever I end up taking a photo I think deserves to be put on the blog. So. Follow, if you like? (And if, you know, you have a tumblr).
