WHERE ARE THE LEVERAGE/INCEPTION CROSSOVERS?! Don't lie to me, I know they exist.

I finally got off my ass and imported all my lj entries over to dreamwidth. Why then did I title this a post of procrastination, you say? Ah, you see, what I actually should be doing is working on my secret angels fic, which is due... tomorrow.


To googledocs I go!

ETA: I have 8 dreamwidth invite codes if anyone wants to join the party over here. :D

Well, my video card is officially fried. No laptop for probably the next couple weeks while I figure things out. 007 may still pull through, it depends on what Dell says. The suspense is killing me, you guys. D:

I was following links around today, and I came across this brain-hurting screed against contraception. Don't worry, I read it so you don't have to, and I've carefully selected a few choice facepalm moments for your delectation. Enjoy - or not.

Warnings: misogyny, racism, mention of eating disorders, stupidity

According to Ms. Smith, contraception is like: )

Some other highlights: )


PS FOR SHEER LULZ VALUE: "God has said, 'I want to be there at the fertile time. I made the fertile time for bringing forth new human life. If you engage in the sexual act, I want My option of making new human life. But I gave you a half of a month, three quarters of a month, where you're infertile and if you want to pursue the bonding power of the sexual act without babies, do it then. I'm asleep. I'm out of town. I don't expect to be invited at that time. I'm not around. You can't even make Me come. I won't come. I can't.'" *snigger*

Written for the [ profile] hc_bingo prompt: zombie apocalypse. See my bingo card.

Title: Brains: A Love Story
Author: [ profile] nianeyna
Fandom: J2
Genre: h/c, crack, au, zombies!
Rating: R for gore
Length: 1500 words
Author's Notes: Pretty much all I know about Jared and Jensen is that apparently they're in some show together or something, can't quite remember what that's called. XD In that vein, does anyone on my flist know where I might post this? I'm not really in J2 fandom, obviously. All of the credit blame for this story goes to [ profile] dreamwaffles, without whom I would have written something completely different and much less cracktastic for this fill. It is dedicated to [ profile] brainmissing, because the day that I write a crack hurt/comfort zombie apocalypse J2 AU about zombies in love and don’t dedicate it to [ profile] brainmissing is the day I kill myself out of shame.

This fic has been moved! It is now at AO3.

Look, I don't know either, okay? It's like it just vomited itself out of my head into Microsoft Word.

I didn't make a thread for myself personally since I've only posted one podfic (soon to change, I promise!), but you can find [ profile] fgproductions 's thread here. Plus you should totally browse around and comment for anybody else you recognize. :)

As you all may or may not know, schmoopy hurt/comfort is my drug of choice (seriously, it's embarassing), which is why when I heard about this shit via [ profile] lemniciate I was on it like Jack on Ianto. Behold my [ profile] hc_bingo card:

Behind the cut )

I was extremely pleased when in addition to genderswap, wings, and zombie apocalypse, (zombie apocalypse!) I got NOT ONE, but TWO vampire prompts. That's right, ladies. This is going to be the most cracktastic hurt/comfort of all time. (No worries, there will be plenty of unabashed schmoop, too. I'm good at the unabashed schmoop. Confession time: part of the reason I hardly ever post anything is that I only write the one overblown h/c scene and then I get bored before I finish, like, the beginning, middle, and end bits. This'll be good for me, it's like carte blanche to indulge all my terrible habits.)

Fills will be linked to from the squares as I complete them, and wherever I post them will link back to here.
nianeyna: Morgana from BBC's Merlin (Default)
Well, this is terribly exciting! My first podfic, other than the [ profile] fgproductions stuff (which you guys should all totally go check out if you haven't already pimps shamelessly).

Title: Perfect
Author: [ profile] misswinterhill
Reader: [ profile] nianeyna
Fandom: Torchwood
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Ianto, Owen/Ianto friendship, implied Owen/Tosh, implied Gwen/Jack (unrequited/not acted upon), team love (of the platonic kind)
Genre: Fluff, mild angst, fluff
Rating: M for swearing. Lots and lots of swearing. Not bad swearing. Mostly pissed (drunk, if you're an American) swearing.
Warnings: none
Spoilers: All of S1, first ep of S2 but selectively. This sort of AUs away simply in that in trying to write fluff, I wrote a sitcom. Dr Who: Last of the Time Lords and surrounding eps. I have made some assumptions about the TW team's ability to contact people and be contacted. Spoilers for the name of the guy at TW2.
Summary: “My problem,” said Ianto, miserably. “Is that I drank nearly an entire bottle of bourbon on my own.”
Author's Note: There is a section that seems to repeat. It is intentional and slightly different. I'm not as stupid as I look.
Reader's Note: I promise you, I actually do know how to pronounce the word "bourbon." I think I must have had some sort of strange and very specific amnesia while I was recording this. I hope you can forgive me, dear listeners.

I have oodles of extra time this quarter due to my accounting class being canceled, so one of my resolutions (along with, get a job that pays more than minimum wage - yeah, that one's not going so well) is to actually do some podficcing. I've been meaning to do this since [personal profile] pi introduced me to the glory of podfic this summer, but I've been sort of stalled due to lack of a good space. I don't want to record in my dorm room, for reasons which, with three non-fannish roommates, should be obvious. But! Seattle U has a 'music room' that anyone can reserve and which is perfect for the job as it is basically just a quiet room in the basement with a door that locks, and you get it completely to yourself for the time you have it reserved. So, yay! That's solved.

My first recording session was from 8-9 pm today. I got about six and a half minutes of podfic out of the experience. >.< To be fair, though, I spent a good chunk of my hour futzing with Audacity in an effort to get it to play nice with my headset. Also cleaning up the music room, because I don't know about you guys, but I find it difficult to embark on a creative endeavor when there is someone's empty take-out box sitting by my elbow. It offends my muse, okay? College students, wtf.

I have the room reserved for two hours tomorrow, and hopefully things should go smoother. This time, I am not forgetting my water bottle.

From [ profile] amisophe: Let’s make a TARDIS wave throughout LJ. When you see this entry, post a picture of the show to your own journal.

(PS I have no idea what episode this is from, but it's a fun image. Also wtf, I don't have any Doctor Who icons?! My shame is like an ocean. D8)

Apparently S02E02 of Merlin is to be called "The Once and Future Queen."



Okay, so it probably just means Uther's going to marry a troll, as hinted at in the season preview (which... I swear to you I have ACTUALLY READ THAT FIC. No, seriously. I am not making this up.) but still. Let's just say, I have been watching a lot of Queer as Folk lately, and the image of Arthur in a sequin-y dress with tons of sparkly makeup and high heels with rhinestones all over them WILL NOT LEAVE MY BRAIN. Oh, Show. You do love me. _ :D

❶ Choose an episode of anime or television series you have on your computer. Make sure you're certain you want that one, you cannot change your mind. DO NOT TELL YOUR FLIST WHAT YOU CHOSE.
❷ Make note of how long the episode is here -> 43:58
❸ Ask your flist to choose a time between 00:00 and whatever the length of your episode is. Be specific, (ie: 19:11, 21:09, 02:42)
❹ Make them an icon using THAT FRAME ONLY no matter what it is. And remember, you can only use that ONE episode you chose previous, even if the person posting isn't familiar with it.

So.  Dreamwidth.

Thanks to [personal profile] kelene , I have an account!  Um, yay?  I've been poking around, and it does seem very cool over here.  For one thing there are NO ADS, which is indeed a plus.  For another I can crosspost this entry to lj just by checking a little box, which is cool.  And now that I've said that about crossposting I really hope that it actually, you know, works.

I think I'm probably going to put up my fics on here (you know, all two of them) and then... I don't know.  We'll see how things turn out.  Honestly I hadn't even heard of Dreamwidth until about a week ago, when it seemed like everybody on my flist was jumping ship.  Or rather cautiously extending a toe from one ship to the other, while actually mostly staying on the first ship - I think this metaphor has lost its usefulness.  Probably I am going to do what many other people seem to be doing: sort of mirror my lj on Dreamwidth and wait for developments.

I'm also nianeyna on dw if you want to find me over there (here?  This crossposting thing could get confusing fast...).

In honor of [personal profile] dreamwafflesfinally watching Merlin, I decided to go through my bookmarks and put together a list of my very favoritest Merlin fics, a sort of introduction to the fandom, if you will (or even if you won't). I'm much too lazy to put these in any particular order or organize them by length or rating or what have you, so you're just going to have to put up with my half-assed summaries. Anyway, twenty-two Merlin fics, for whoever wants them:

Cut to save flists )

So there you have it. All I have left to say is that, if anyone is reading this and thinking, "Shock! Horror! My very favoritest Merlin fic is not here!" then I would be an extremely happy penguin if you would comment with a link, and possibly a short description. Remember: the fandom gods smile on those who share good fics with others. Let's all pretend I didn't just pull that out of my butt.
nianeyna: Morgana from BBC's Merlin (Default)

Ahahaha, seriously you guys, it's not even funny.

...Okay, so it's a little funny, actually.

Anyway, so in history we're learning about Ancient Near East civilizations, and today the professor was telling us the story of the Epic of Gilgamesh, which is basically about this badass king in Mesopotamia.  He's kind of a bitch though, so the people get pissed off at him and pray to the gods to take him down a notch or two.  The gods are like, "hey, so, this king is kind of a bitch" so they send this wild man named Enkidu to run around with the animals and mess up all the hunting.  As smiting goes it's kind of weird and lame, but whatever.  Anyway, the king is not really suited to a vegetarian lifestyle so he sends a prostitute out to have sex with Enkidu for a week (!), after which Enkidu becomes civilized and "wise", and loses his ability to chillax with the animals.  (No, really.  I couldn't make this stuff up.)  Then Enkidu goes and fights Gilgamesh, after which, of course, they become best friends.

The two of them journey around fighting a ton of monsters and stuff, until Gilgamesh gets proposed to by the goddess Ishtar.  Here's a paraphrased snapshot of what went on in the classroom during this part of the story:

PROFESSOR: Then Gilgamesh was proposed to by Ishtar, who was basically the Mesopotamian Aphrodite, goddess of love and fertility, and he turned her down -
MY BRAIN: because he was having hot man sex with Enkidu.
PROFESSOR: because, he said, she brought misfortune to any man who was associated with her.  Ishtar was so offended that she decided to kill Enkidu.  Gilgamesh was heartbroken.
MY BRAIN: ...QED.  Hot man sex.

I had to stop myself from cracking up during class, because then people tend to ask what you're laughing about.  And that would have been awkward.  XD

This is how my latest computer science assignment has gone.

Nia: *types*
Nia: *compiles*
Compiler: You fail!
Nia: Huh.  *moves semicolons around*
Compiler: *all but one of the errors is gone*
Compiler: chutes.cpp:9: error: expected unqualified-id before "using"
Nia: Err, what?
*looks at program*
*cannot figure out what the heck the problem is*
*emails teacher*
Teacher: Err, what?  There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with it.  Try copying it into a new file.  Maybe it's got a HIDDEN CHARACTER.
Nia: ...ok... *copies*
Compiler: chutes.cpp:9: error: expected unqualified-id before "using"
Nia: Grr.  Sheesh.  Well, maybe this supposed "hidden character" got copied along with the rest...
Nia: *retypes the ENTIRE PROGRAM by hand*
Compiler: ...
Compiler: chutes.cpp:9: error: expected unqualified-id before "using"

Normally I would just say the heck with it and move on, but I have to use this class in my next asignment, which means it HAS to compile.  Somehow.  I'm just going to have to figure out how before 11 am on Tuesday.  *head/DESK*

Reply to this post, and I will list three or more things I like about you. Then repost to your own journal to spread the love.

In other news, for those of you who I haven't already squeed to at length, I JUST BOUGHT A NEW LAPTOP!!!!111!!1!  It is a Midnight Blue Dell XPS 1530, and I am already in love with it even though I haven't actually seen it yet.  It should be landing in my eager palms sometime early next week.

So basically I am now totally, utterly broke.  Ummmm, yeah.  But, ohgod, so worth it.  :D

PS My NaNo hit finals, choked, and sputtered to a halt.  But I'm not done with this story yet!  I'm not going to make any promises since I always break them, but I have high hopes for this one, oh yes I do.

Ugh, there are fruit flies ALL OVER my dorm room.  It's like for every one I squish, two more will appear.  I am NOT impressed.  -__-

 I don't know if any of you are interested, but I am about to embark on a Most Excellent Adventure, which, boiled down to its essentials, involves reading all twenty Master and Commander books, a chapter a week.  More information behind the cut, taken directly from the community info page:

If you're interested, head on over to and check it out.  If not, just ignore me; I'm used to it.  XD
