Follow the cut for an index of all the fanfiction I have posted on LJ - all of this is also on Fanfiction.net, where I use the same username as I do here. Some of these don't link to anywhere yet, as I haven't posted it all. All fic is rated no higher than PG-13 unless otherwise stated.

EDIT: I have updated the list to include information about the status of some of the fics. :)

Sometimes you don't hear from a friend for a while, and it makes you very sad.

Hi everyone.

As you may (or may not) have noticed, I've not been around very much. I have a fulltime job that's eating all of my time, and with dissertation and essay on top of it it's all a bit of a struggle. I probably should have posted this weeks ago, but I kept thinking "I will, I'll post on LJ tomorrow, or the day after, or something" and never did.

I'm not leaving for good (GOD NO) but I'm not going to be posting for a while; possibly not until September, which is when my dissertation is due and my MA finished. In the meantime feel free to browse my previous posts, read my fic, or ignore me as you prefer. Any comments left will be answered (admittedly probably after a delay, as I don't have internet in my house right now), but other than that I won't be around.

Hope you're all doing well; wish I could keep up with you like I used to.

pandafoot105, stay away from this post, as there are honking great Buffy spoilers!

I know it's not the 25th of May yet, but this icon felt oddly right today.

Buffy spoilers, life rant and stress...Collapse )

I'm behind on Doctor Who, so nobody spoil me for yesterday's episode! But what did you all think of the first two? I rather like Clara, I must say. And I quite liked the second episode, though some people thought it was cheesy.

Hello all.

Thanks to everyone for their help on my last post - my friend greatly appreciates it. Sorry for only posting dull life updates at the moment. Basically, in the last three weeks, I have...

- Acquired a temporary full-time job, which has basically eaten my life - I still have evenings but I'm either doing uni work or so zoned out that I can't handle productivity
- Gone to my nan's funeral :/ We weren't very close, so it didn't feel very personal to me, but it was sad seeing my dad deal with it. Went home on a Wednesday evening after work and got back Thursday night after taking the Thursday off.
- Been given a role with lines in the MPS show; I didn't audition, but someone else has dropped out so I've been given something to do, which is fairly cool
- Continued working at the charity shop on Saturdays and going to rehearsal on Sundays, so my week doesn't really seem to stop
- And finally, I did my poetry presentation for uni on Philip Larkin. It went pretty well, though it stressed me out putting it together, and I'm hoping we'll hear back about marks soon.

So that's my life right now, hahaha. You know you've got too much on when you cry for ten whole minutes because your hotmail account has been "upgraded" to a weird, ugly, blue version of outlook. *shifty eyes* I'm alright at the moment, but I'm looking forward to when this temporary job is over (despite the income, which is delightful) and I can get my time back.

Waves and hugs to all! Please feel free to drop me a comment, I will respond.

How am I?: hot

Hi guys! Just dropping by for five minutes, and wondered if anyone could help me...

A friend of mine is writing an essay on fanfiction, and she needs examples of particularly well-known fanfic. Stuff like The Shoebox Project? That's Harry Potter, but it doesn't have to be any particular fandom. Just an author who's got something of a following in her own right. If anyone has a name to put forward, please drop it to me (with a link if possible) in the comments.

Thanks, and hopefully I'll be back to a more fulfilling online life soon!

Hello everyone!

So, yes. I've not been around. I've not been checking my flist, and I've not been posting except for trying to catch up with Lightning Clan. And to be honest, I don't think that's about to change in the near future - however much I'd like it to. This makes me sad.

A bit of housekeeping for now:

1. Supernatural reviews. I don't think I'm going to carry on doing them. It's been really good fun, and I do not like the idea of leaving the season seven set unfinished, so I might get back to them at some point - maybe later in the summer - but for now I'm just putting them away. I genuinely have no time, and I'm sorry about that.

2. Fanfiction. You'll have noticed that I'm mostly just posting chapters from Lightning Clan to my journal in a reoccuring and repetitive pattern. Sorry if that's a little dull, but it's the main thing I have to catch up with - I'm on chapter five here, but chapter twelve/thirteen on ff.net, and I want them to match up. I'm also behind on the 21 fandoms, 21 fics thing. I'm not dropping that, but again due to the busy nature of my life it's kind of on hold until I can get my head back into it.

3. Life in general. The busy that is my life, in case you were wondering, currently consists of two volunteering jobs (charity shop and theatre), the hunt for a paid job (on my own and with an agency), three societies (two meet twice a week and one once a week), my Master's degree (currently: changing my dissertation topic and working on creating a poetry presentation), and setting up the third ever Harry Potter readaloud for May 4th (whoo!). I'm also going to see The Woman in Black on Monday!

4. Buffy! The coolest thing going on for me right now is I'm watching Buffy from the beginning with pandafoot105, who unbelievably has never seen it before. This is truly delightful. *grins* The most recent episode we've watched is the first episode of season three, Anne. She seems to really be enjoying it, and although I always enjoy a bit of Buffy it's twice as fun watching it with someone else. Because of the Buffyness of my brain right now, I currently have this:

Buffy Top Ten Episodes (SPOILERS)Collapse )

pandafoot105 you have been warned; stay out of this post, there are spoilers! What episodes/seasons/story arcs/characters were your favourites, guys? Which ones do you rewatch the most/remember the best? And failing that: how are you? Do feel free to leave a comment saying hi even if you're not a Buffy fan :)

Procrastination is soul destroying >.< I got fourteen books out of the library to bring home to start work on my essays/dissertation proposals and have I got anywhere? Nope. Am I likely to get anywhere? Nope. Hence the whinging. It's my own fault, of course, but if you can't have a self-indulgent moan on your livejournal, where can you? :P

Self-Indulgent MoanCollapse )

Don't feel obliged to read that, by the way - it's mostly for my benefit. :)

On another note, I had a brilliant Christmas! It was kind of low-key, which is weird, but although I wouldn't like it to be like that all the time it was nice for a change. I got some great presents, and I'm making a post about a particular birthday/christmas present when I get back to York. Exciting times! We're going up Tower 42 tonight to see the fireworks, so that'll be good fun.

If anyone's wondering what's happened to the Supernatural reviews, it's my fault because I (rather idiotically) left the ones I had to type up in York, so I couldn't get anywhere over the break. I was going to watch a load of episodes and build them up too, but my parents aren't fans and I've not really had the opportunity to watch any (I have them recorded on the telly). 

So long story short, I'm getting a bit stressed out :/ Wish I wasn't. Last term was so busy, but Christmas hasn't really been a break. I think after the fourteenth I'll have a little rest before it all kicks off again, so I'm looking forward to that. Sorry to be such a downer at this time of year!

Maybe I'll go for a walk. It's a bit miserable out but I have a big coat for a reason. A walk, and my new Matilda soundtrack :D

Did you guys get/do anything exciting for Christmas?
