+ aaaaand guess who's back to watching TVD??? *points finger at self* I'm at 5x02, and I've actually been enjoying it so far?? I mean, my level of investment is nowhere near what it was prior to season 3--though perhaps that may be the very reason why I'm able to enjoy it?? IDEK lol, but I shall plow on (and likely post my thoughts when I'm all caught up).

+ Question for The Originals fans on my flist: where do you guys go for fic (if you reas it)--the selction on AO3 and Fanfiction.net (yes, I actually went there lol) is pretty scarce (particularly considering that I'm most interested in Elijah and Davina--not necessarily as a pair though--centric fic). Any reccs would be much appreciated!

+ And here's an uber interesting meme I snagged off redbrunja:

Write a sentence of a story for me and I will give you the next five. (Or more.) =)

+ I miss everyone and this space TERRIBLY, and coming across the following comment posted by nyxelestia on Fandom Secrets was a real slap in the face:

The analogy I once used to explain the fandom shift is that journal-sites and forums were like a cafe, while Tumblr is a club.

In the cafe, people tend to sit down at a table and they often have long discussions or will even just share "space" of a table while doing their own thing. You won't meet a lot of people necessarily, but the ones you do meet you will usually get to know pretty well.

In a club people usually remain standing, and are mostly dancing or just chatting around the edges - it's great for meeting a lot of people and having some superficial fun, but there's loud music and people are drinking so you don't really get long and deep conversations except in very rare cases and incidences, and most of the time if there is a conversation, people are mishearing or missing completely each other's words, while other people are chiming in while passing by, leading to fractured multiple conversations. Fun for a little while but grating and demoralizing in the long term.

I was using this analogy to explain to a rather die-hard Tumblr user why I disliked the fandom shift towards Tumblr. In the analogy, I was a strong cafe-goer. I liked going to the club every now and then, but I just could not tolerate going there on a regular basis, and preferred the cafe. And I didn't have too much of a problem with other people going to the club, but I was sad because a lot of them were not coming back to the cafe, so I had less people to chill with, and afraid that if enough people stopped coming, the metaphorical cafe would be forced to shut down. I went to the club out of necessity, but I would go with ear plugs and only after taking headache medication and often tried to continue chatting like I was in a cafe, which didn't work so well because people in the club were used to wandering off, suddenly branching off with another person, or were drunk during the conversation.

BUT, HOW PERFECT AND ACCURATE IS THIS THOUGH?! Like, as much as I enjoy all the pretty and the quick updates and the constant activity, Tumblr (to me and, I would argue, a number of other people), is a cold, ultimately lonely place--a void.


+ My first order of business in achieving the above goal: diving into a Ficathon, the following looks like a good place to start, y/y?

+Second Order of business: Why TV talk of course! I've started watching The Originals and I am enjoying it far more than I thought I would.

[cut for some thoughts on TO...]Rebekah and Hayley are the actual best, Elijah can do no wrong, Marcel can get it and a half, Sophie keeps getting better and better, Davina may soon prove to be the new love of my life, and Klaus and Camille are well... Klaus and Camille lol :/

Ironically, I tried to get back into TVD but FOR THE LIFE OF ME I COULD NOT DO IT D: here's to hoping The Originals does not crash and burn for me too soon :|

Feel free to bring me your opinions (I'm trying to catch up on everyone's episode reactions in the meantime...)

+ Also, are any of you participating in NaNoWriMo this year?? I wanted to but I've yet to develop an original idea I feel passionate enough about the really carry through with soooo I'm sitting this one out (yet again lol).

Brienne the Beauty and the Kingslayer, they call them. A jape of the most sordid variety it would seem from the gasps and giggles and the (far too frequent for her liking) barks of cruel laughter...Collapse )

+ I didn't get the chance to respond to everyone's comments on my last post (the one where I vented endlessly about my new job/horrible boss), but I want you guys to know that I seriously appreciate your hearing me out and giving me feedback (your tips came in super handy honeywheeler, dreamingahead and juno_chan, thank you! *hugs)--it made me feel LOADS better and reminded me that I'm far from the only person in the world who has to deal with such unpleasantness lol :$


+ The asoiafkinkmeme is having a Lightening Round for prompting until Monday (i.e. tomorrow) at noon, after which the community will be on hiatus until November/December, so anyone with a prompt in mind should definitely get it out there ASAP.

+ gameofships is having a Porn Battle from Wednesday August 15 to Friday August 17 and here's the List of Prompts for those who are so inclined (also, I would be forever grateful to anyone who decides to write me some good Jon/Sansa, I feel like I haven't read anything for this ship that has consumed my heart in a while now *sad face*).
