For my Goldenlake buddies: I'm not half keeping up with One Sentence Week, even though it's massively fun. So, if you've written any (or know of any) that are likely to especially appeal to me, please don't be shy about letting me know! Comment here or message me there.

Australia?

How welcoming is Australia to immigrants from the U.S? Do you need money/health/connections/useful skills to be eligible?

Just found out there's something that could very well be a miracle drug for BookGeekGal, but it's not available in the U.S. She's bounced Australia, the U.K, and France as places she could stand to live, where it is available. I can't speak French to save my life (I can read it, some, but fail epically at pronunciation), so I think I'd have to part company with her if she decided to move there. And if I was gonna move anywhere 1000s of miles away, I'd want it to be someplace with a lot of nature nearby (even if the weather is basically the opposite of Alaska, which was my first choice).

I'm fairly sure it's all a pipe dream anyway -- but I like to be informed, even in fantasy. Help please?

ETA: And can you import pet dogs?

2nd ETA: It looks like a no-go for BookGeekGal, more than likely, because of her health issues. Perfectly understandable -- most countries, especially those with any degree of publicly run/funded healthcare, take that stuff into consideration. But I hadn't researched Australia before.

Just heard about this, and it sounds so cool that I have to share! A Girl Saves Boy ficathon!


Banner by [livejournal.com profile] skybound2

Not sure if I'm going to sign up or not, since I'm pretty occupied already... but I thought I'd spread the word, since all my fandoms are more or less focused on girls kicking ass.

Heads Up!

I was just reminded that International Day of Femslash is July 17, which is only three days away! It's exactly what it sounds like -- an excuse to flood fic and fanwork sites with f/f fics, art, and so on. [livejournal.com profile] femslash100  is hosting a drabblethon for the occasion, for anyone in a joining sort of mood. Me? I feel some Torchwood and Emelan drabbles coming on.

Gakked from [livejournal.com profile] thegraduate09 .

Pick a fandom of mine, and I'll tell you....

One True Pairing Ship:
Canon Ship:
"If this happens I'll stab my eyes out with a spork" Ship:
"You are one sick bastard" Ship:
"I dabble a little" Ship:
"It's like a car crash" Ship:
"Tickles my fancy but not sold just yet" Ship:
"Makes no canon sense but why the Hell not" Ship:
"Everyone else loves it but I just don't feel it" Ship:
"When all is said and done" Ship:

Y'all know what makes me fannish, so ask away!

Here's another response to a drabble request.

This one is for [livejournal.com profile] kitty_ryan , because I sometimes have an incredibly literal mind.Another Emelan drabble! )

Look, now I have a Beka Cooper icon! (For added geekery, the font is called "Cooper.")  I'm still too sick to go anywhere (just a cold, but an ugly one), and having a hard time making decisions. But I wrote some drabbles.

For [livejournal.com profile] q_sama  ,an Emelan drabble )



For [livejournal.com profile] pineappleyness , a Provost's Dog drabble )



I'm also still taking drabble requests over here. :)
peroxidepirate: (fandom slut)
I'm waiting for one of many ideas to settle down and be ready to grow into a real story, but meanwhile, I feel like I'm getting rusty.

So I'm taking drabble requests! I'll take up to 12; for this exercise, I'm willing to write for any of the fandoms listed in my tags. (If you know I like something that doesn't happen to be listed there, feel free to ask about it. I'll probably be happy to write that, too.)

I'll need the following:

Fandom:
Characters (1 to 4):
Pairing (optional):
One situation or prompt:

Hit me!

This is something I've been pondering, on and off, for a while: most everybody recognizes the "gay male voice" as a cultural trope. But is there a female equivalent? More thoughts, some restaurant stories & a poll under the cut.

Hmm... )

Also: my flist isn't that big, so feel free to link this post if you think your flist or any comms would be interested. I'm an amateur cultural anthropologist collecting data, folks! The more participation, the better.

Here's a drabble meme I got from the lovely [livejournal.com profile] gabrielleabelle -- she wrote an excellent Giles/OC drabble for my request, and now it's my turn to write ten drabbles.

"The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. If you absolutely can't write, you can offer icons or something instead."

I'm willing to write....
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  • Angel: the Series
  • Buffy Season 8 Comics (but I've only read up to issue 20)
  • Tamora Pierce, Tortall universe (anything)
  • Tamora Pierce, Circle universe (anything except Melting Stones, which I never finished)

So... fire away! Just pick a fandom and give me a character, pairing, setting, and/or prompt of your choice.

(And by the way, if you've already done this meme, you can make a request for "free" -- that is, you don't have to then take requests for 10 more drabbles, cuz that would just get silly.)
