Friends Only

banner made by rescuedsoul

My journal is semi-friends only - all of my fanfiction is now posted at my fic comm, fic_flail. If you'd like me to friend you, please drop a comment (they're screened). :) ♥

It is no longer 2012

According to my journal, the last time I posted here was in 2012.

That is a long time ago.

I kind of stumbled back here accidentally during my weekend internet adventures. I hope everyone is doing well.

Changes for me since 2012: I am no longer in academia, I do boring officey work instead, I moved to London at the start of this year and really like it, and I'm mentally/emotionally much happier than I was in my early twenties.

How is everyone else? Challenge to summarise the last three years in one (run-on) sentence, ahhh!

Five Acts: New Mod, New Round

I'm too busy these days, so the fantastic heeroluva has agreed to take over Five Acts! The next round will be held from November 28th to December 5th, so head over to her journal for more info. I've had a lovely time hosting Five Acts, and I'm sure heeroluva will too. Thank you all for making it so fun. :)

Five Acts


I wanted to post again to ask if anyone would be willing to take over Five Acts. This would involve running the main sign-up page and keeping the master list updated, as well as gathering a team of minions helpers for the Delicious account. If you might be able to take over, just leave a comment or send me a PM to let me know you're interested. :)

Five Acts

It's been a long time since I've posted - the end of my Master's completely destroyed any and all brain function. I'm still recovering!

I've had a couple of people messaging me to ask about the status of Five Acts. I was hoping that I might be together enough to run the next round some time this month, but I really don't think I'm going to be. I'd hate to see it fade away, though, so I thought I would ask if anyone would be interested in volunteering to take over. Just leave a comment or PM me to let me know!

The Avengers

I just got home from seeing the Avengers! It was so good and I was so excited that my hands MAY HAVE BEEN trembling for the entire film.


Just deleted a anonymous comment on an old fic that called me a 'sick bitch' for writing it. Fabulous.

five acts deliciousing

Hello, hello. Would anyone have any time to volunteer to archive fics written for people on page four or page five of the Five Acts sign-ups?

mcfly! mcfly! mcfly!

I'm heading out for the evening to see McFly (!!!!!!! again !!!!!!!) so I'll be around to deal with any and all Five Acts stuff when I get back. I already have a thousand and one things written in my head. >:)

[CLOSED]Five Acts: Round Six

Based on the community five_acts (check it out for more details!), we're going to have a week of indulging each other's favourite kinks, tropes, acts and pairings. Amazingly, we are up to Round Six. In a nutshell, what we do is:

+ Post a list of your five favorite acts/kinks to read about. Check out this list if you need some inspiration. At the bottom of your post, add what fandoms/pairings you're interested in.
+ Read other people's lists; the master list of lists is here.
+ Post comment-fic based off of other people's interests.

Once you've posted your list, give me the link in the comments here so that people know how to find you. If anyone would like a banner to decorate their post, there are some over here, and please feel free to add to the collection.

To sign up, please post this form in the comments:

I'll post my own sign-up comment as an example.

The Five Acts Meme will last from the 13th to the 19th of April. Check out the Five Acts Delicious Account to see what has been written so far. I could really do with some more volunteers to help out with logging the fics, so please do let me know if you think you could help.

Round Six Master List :: The Five Acts Delicious Account :: Banners :: Questions

ETA: This round is now closed. Thank you to all who signed up! You can continue filling requests for as long as you'd like. Keep an eye out, because we're going to have an amnesty round for old, unfinished request fills in a month or so. Round seven will be held sometime in August-ish.

Five Acts

I have my essays open and begging for my attention in another tab, but I wanted to pop back in to confirm that the dates for the next round of Five Acts are the 13th to the 19th of April. Yay!

I'm definitely going to need help with banner-making and Delicious-logging. If you would be able to lend a hand, please let me know in the comments here.

five acts! yay!

My diary informs me that I should be hosting the next round of Five Acts sometime this month (yay!). I have three deadlines on the 6th of April, so there is no way I'll be able to do anything until after that. Does anyone have any preferences for dates in April that would work best for a week of comment ficcing it up?

Also, I have a presentation tomorrow about visual printed culture in the eighteenth century. Nipples everywhere. Please enjoy this picture as a sample of what I'm gonna be talking about:

writing stuffs of 2011

Oh my, I finally finished typing up my 2011 Fic List. 2011 was the year of the short-and-sweet fics. The majority of what I wrote were short ficlets for my fic tumblr, which I've been greatly enjoying - very low pressure, and mostly just writing for myself. This is probably reflected in the ridiculous number of fandoms I've got this time around - I've found myself writing short fics about movies that I've liked, like The Perfect Stranger, even though there's no audience for it. It's just been to amuse myself and appease my curiosity, so it's been very satisfying.

The other satisfying writing project I started in 2011 was my horror blog Wimp Does Horror. I started that in February 2011 and it's been a lot of fun, helping me to engage with what I'm watching. I'm nearly entirely through my initial list of 55 films, so I'm going to be pulling together a second list soonish in order to work through that over 2012.


apocalypse au meme

Give me a fandom (feel free to specify character/s too) and some kind of apocalypse and I'll tell you what happens to them.

One Sentence Fic-a-Palooza

I fancy writing some one sentence fics tonight/tomorrow/Boxing Day, so I'm shoving this post up. Anyone can prompt, anyone can write, and you can be as rule-bending with punctuation as you like. Any fandom. Any pairing. Any rating.

christmas eve

Merry Christmas-Eve everyone. :) I've been down to the retirement home to visit my granddad today, and have finished wrapping the last of my presents to the family. Having rather a nice, relaxed time. If I'm up late tonight, I may do a one-sentence fic thing: I'm rather in the mood for it, I think. In the meantime, I've just posted my ficmas gifts for everyone. Enjoy!
