(I haven't forgotten to write more drabbles, I just haven't gotten around to them yet, I promise.)

Done for [livejournal.com profile] brb_gallifrey's fanmix challenge thingie. I did another different one too, but I haven't done up any covers for it yet. So, without further ado, the fanmix only a very small amount of people will understand:

For my own purposes, a list of all the Eighth Doctor Adventures, with the one's I've read crossed off. (geeze I've not read many at all.) In future, I may put up links to things concerning each book, but this is it for now. Feel free to yell "OMG YOU HAVEN'T READ _________, READ IT RIGHT NOW."

So, [livejournal.com profile] riverdresses asked that I put this up, so here it is. This is a mix for original!Fitz in the second half of the EDA Interference, and could apply to The Ancestor Cell as well.

First of all, flist, are you interested in Fitz but know nothing about him? I'm gauging interest in an EDA read-along, so if you're interested, head over to [livejournal.com profile] act_three and put in a word!

As for me-

I've spent today figuring out what classes I'll be taking next semester, and I think I'll be able to fit them all in to graduate with my AA in English (emphasis in creative writing!) after the semester. ...and I have to figure out how to file for graduation since there's no information on the website.

Those classes will (hopefully) be:
Intro to Physics (with a lab) - fills the sciences requirement and doesn't require higher mathematics or protective eyewear. Physicsphysicsphysicsphysicsphysicsphysics phyyyyyysics physics.

Mythology - I e-mailed the professor when I was thinking of taking this class a couple semesters ago and expressed my worries about her textbook, which I've heard is largely inaccurate. She never responded to me...so I hope that she doesn't remember my name.

British Literature II - with the same teacher I took before, who is actually English and a good teacher...even though he called me Susan once (I am not called Susan).

Interpersonal Communication - a requirement which I have to re-take because I missed a major assignment while I had a fever of 103 and was coughing up a lung a couple weeks ago. (And he wouldn't give me an extension on the dang thing either.)

Self-Defense for Women - (not sure why just women. Can't guys learn to kick guys in the balls too?) with the same teacher I'm taking T'ai Chi from this semester, and is actually practical as well as filling the fitness requirement.

I also need to figure out if 1) I can get into a four year institution and 2) if I can afford it without taking out massive loans. The answer to both of these questions is most likely no, given that California colleges are currently restricting admissions, I'm not a particularly desirable candidate, and I have no money. :|

Rules:
Reply to this meme by yelling 'WORDS!', and I will give you five words that remind me of you.
Then post them in your journal and explain what they mean to you.
Keep in mind that if I don't know you that well, your words might end up kind of esoteric/oblique.

You'll only get five words if you do include 'WORDS!' in a reply to this post, meaning you can safely comment (should you wish to do so) without having to play.


I got words from both [livejournal.com profile] dragonessa24 and [livejournal.com profile] nix_101, so here's nine words. Not ten, as they both gave me California to talk about.

For those of you who didn't catch this when I put it up on my twitter in the middle of the night:

Photobucket


I might x-post this a bit later.

cosmic_celery: (DW: 8)
I'm calling this "If you get this, you know way too much about Doctor Who"
Photobucket


No idea why it turned out slightly blurry. I think it was photobucket's doing.

I showed the line art to [livejournal.com profile] mertondingle earlier and we decided that there should be a new TV show on:

[livejournal.com profile] cosmic_celery: If there was a Fitz and Nine mopey drunk hour TV show, I'd watch it every damn week.
[livejournal.com profile] mertondingle: That would be the best television show ever.
[livejournal.com profile] mertondingle: People could call in with questions and their solutions would be "BAHH FUCK IT ALL."
[livejournal.com profile] cosmic_celery: LOL I love it. And then they'd hang up the phone and go make lists of all the things they're depressed about.
[livejournal.com profile] mertondingle: Like David Letterman's top ten things.
[livejournal.com profile] cosmic_celery: Except they can't decide which one is the worst.
[livejournal.com profile] mertondingle: So it's just "#1: Everything. :-("
[livejournal.com profile] cosmic_celery: DD:
[livejournal.com profile] cosmic_celery: Okay, now I'm imagining like...the Sonny and Cher show, except instead of breaking into song, Nine would rant for a while and Fitz would play a depressing song in the background.
[livejournal.com profile] mertondingle: Ahahahaha.

Absolutely UNCANNY resemblance here, guys.

Also, looking up synonyms for "reverie" today I thought this was slightly odd:
Photobucket

An antonym of "reverie" is nightmare, but an antonym of "daydream" is reality? Does that mean that, since the definition of "reverie" is "daydream", its antonyms are both "nightmare" and "reality"?

My tenuous Maxil backstory, since a couple of you asked (Sorry, does not include any Bayban references. That's in his future, duh.):
He was gullible. When he was little, he believed every ghost story and legend that his parents told him. He trusted his parents; his father's strict rules and his mother's disappointment, and the last thing he wanted to do was fail in front of them or any other authority figure.

Early on he figured out that he could bully people into doing what he wanted, and so he did. His mother discouraged it, trying instead to get him to reach out and understand people and their motivations, to use manipulation rather than force, but he found that too hard to do. Someone once convinced him to circumvent the rules, but he got caught and couldn't talk his way out of it. He thought he'd failed, and vowed to never do so again.

He never had a gift for understanding people, and so he abandoned the idea completely. Instead, he decided to follow the rules as closely as he could, otherwise he knew that he'd end up failing. When he began to be promoted, he figured that this was vindication of his method and kept to it. He likes the idea of being in authority, because that means he gets to make the rules. As such, he has an innate hatred for anyone like the Doctor who circumvents the rules and succeeds while doing it.

Also:
[livejournal.com profile] cosmic_celery (2:00:07 AM): Okay. S'fine with me. But seriously, Fitz and Charley are super adorable. I love it. And look forward to him totally messing things up.
[livejournal.com profile] faience(2:01:01 AM): yeah, there's sort of a voice in my head that says i really ought to keep her far, far away from him
[livejournal.com profile] faience (2:01:17 AM): but they're far too cute to actually listen to that voice
[livejournal.com profile] cosmic_celery(2:01:39 AM): hee XD
[livejournal.com profile] faience(2:02:25 AM): i love that he's totally ready to run off for the doctor.
[livejournal.com profile] cosmic_celery (2:05:52 AM): He knows the Doctor really well, and definitely knows what gets him distressed. He worries about him. And loves him a bit. But he's not going to run. He'll walk at a brisk pace until he finds him.
[livejournal.com profile] faience(2:06:50 AM): *giggle*
[livejournal.com profile] faience(2:08:06 AM): well, it might give the wrong impression if he *ran*
[livejournal.com profile] cosmic_celery (2:09:34 AM): Yes. He's just looking for his friend. The world's not exploding or anything. This clearly is not a critical issue.
[livejournal.com profile] faience(2:10:15 AM): except for the fact that he's leaving a pretty, half-naked girl to go check to make sure his boyfriend is okay, of course.
[livejournal.com profile] cosmic_celery (2:11:14 AM): Yes, but she did already agree to go out with him, so he's covered.

I put this together, and I've been listening to it for a while now, so I thought I'd slap together a cover and share it with all of you!

FITZ

cosmic_celery: (DW: 8: Fitz)
FIIIIIIITZ fitz fitz fitz fitz FIIIIIIITZ fitz fitz fitz fitz fitz fitz fitz fitz FITZ FITZ.

If you haven't heard enough about it already...Company of Friends came out today and I bought it. And Fitz is brilliant. And very Fitz. And HUGS.

Now weighing how much fun it would be to play Fitz at BRB_Gallifrey versus the fact that I've only read a handful of his novels.

Also, Izzy is adorable and perfectly geeky.

cosmic_celery: (DW: 4 Duggan - who do I thump)
Okay, so while most of San Diego geekdom is at ComicCon, I have been at home. AT HOME.

What I did do this week:
I visited the allergist doctor (Yes, I had to go back and re-type doctor with a lower-case d). I don't like him much because he's touchy-feely and likes to stare at my boobs...and he made me wait around for an hour. Anyway, he thinks that I'm not having an allergic reaction to anything AT ALL, but in fact have some sort of virus that's gone systemic. That means that my body will fight it off on it's own - which seems like it might be the case since the bumps on my legs are nearly all gone.

I also got books in the mail for three of my classes, the anthropology book looks interesting and informative, the world history book looks like a standard textbook, and the interpersonal communication textbook looks like it was written in some sort of cuddly, ineffectual-quote ridden hell. All around, pretty much what I'd expected.

Also, I updated my lovely Fitz comm [livejournal.com profile] act_three with a new banner and a slightly new look. The old banner was bugging me because it didn't look like Fitz to me, but this one does. Also, go join if you haven't!

And tomorrow, I get to meet [livejournal.com profile] faience!

Also, I've parred down my tags a bit, so now you might actually be able to find something in here. I still need to go through and assign tags to things, but it's semi-organized now. For example, the fitz tag *points down* now goes to times I've talked about Fitz. How novel.

HONESTY MEME

And...
Pick a character I've written, either in RP or fanfiction, and I'll tell you five things from my headcanon about them.

___________________________________


I didn't get the job at the casino. Not even a second interview! Ah well. They sent me a very impersonal form letter that hadn't even been signed by anyone. :/ Maybe I'll throw myself around to the local bookstores and see if I can get a job in the basement selling books to fine customers.

For the past couple weeks we've had a woman staying in the house. I've known this woman my entire life. She's the one who, upon my birth, convinced my mother to switch my intended first and middle names - much to my later dismay, and now she's staying with us while she does some work. I'll say briefly: this woman is all the things that annoy me about my mother turned up to eleven. She's extremely extroverted, incredibly tidy, snores like a dying yak, and says things like "libary" without notice. She's also incredibly nice and does the dishes, so I can't complain, but I have tended to stay up later at night or hide away in my room so I can get some time to myself. This has totally whacked out my sleep schedual. I suppose I'm just not used to it yet. ...And I don't know how long she's staying, so I may have to.

In more pleasant news, my new laptop is supposed to show up tomorrow. Yay.

Also, I've been reading through the EDA's with Fitz in (I figure that I should read his canon if I run a comm for the guy!) and would just like to say that Unnatural History is complete and utter crack. I can no longer say I haven't read a book in which someone has been mugged by a unicorn on the streets of San Francisco.

-The poll tells me you guys don't mind fan writing here, so here it will stay, along with everything else. I'll get around to posting those I haven't already posted and I think a links post...uh...later.

-I'm famous! Okay...not really.

-Everyone wants a job in a basement with books. We must be able to set something up.

-I've got clothes and everything ready for the non-basement/books job interview Friday. This includes uncomfortable closed toe heels. Grumble.

-Two finals tomorrow and then one on Monday.

-I made an icon out of my Six/Rani scribble. It is up there. And ridiculous.


cosmic_celery: (RD: bad planning)
- [livejournal.com profile] act_three now has over thirty members! And people are participating! Whee.

- I wrote some angst-o-rama Red Dwarf fic. It currently resides over here at [livejournal.com profile] reddwarfslash.

- My English teacher is requiring spectacularly anal levels of organization to go into this research paper.

This includes: Cards for every single piece of information that might be used within the essay with what source it came from and a letter denoting whether it was a direct quote or paraphrase. Those cards are to be separated into used and unused. Also, citation cards (and a Works Cited at the back of the paper), multiple rough drafts, and, for every source, photocopies of the actual pages that I got the information from along with a photocopy of the copyright page. All of that, along with the final draft, are to be sealed into a manila envelope when the assignment is due.

Really. What the shit is that all about? This is an advanced English class. I don't think there really needs to be such extensive precautions taken against plagiarism, if that's what this is. I just think the teacher is an anal pedant.

I don't organize that way! I'd rather just write the damn thing.

Man, I'm going to lose all of those fricken cards.

cosmic_celery: (DW: 8: Fitz)
The Fitz comm [livejournal.com profile] act_three is now officially up and running! Wheee.

Okay, I am done spamming your flists.
EDIT: Okay, I lied. Done now.

*goes off to do boring homework*

Two things:

May. 4th, 2009 05:42 pm
cosmic_celery: (DW: 8: Fitz)
First, I've gone on the bandwagon and gotten a Dreamwidth account. (here it is - same username) I'm not sure that I'll be doing anything with it because I'm so situated here. Also because, to me, "Dreamwidth" sounds like a painful brand of dildo.

Second: I figured with Fitz Kreiner soon to be existing not only in the Eighth Doctor Adventures books, that it was about damn time he had a comm of his own. So I made one. It's not really up yet, but [livejournal.com profile] act_three will be it. Does the name work? It is a reference to Fitz' first book, but maybe that's not clear. I don't know. If anyone has another idea for the comm name let me know.
