I am currently in the process of transferring from Livejournal. Please bear with me whilst I figure this Dreamwidth thing out :)

Welcome to my journal! 

You can find a list of the fanfics that are hosted on my journal here:

This journal is partly...
Just let me know we have something in common! :)

The list of needy fandom stockings is up! (Mine is here!) Apparently we have until 19th to fill them this year. Which is helpful, as I've only done one so far. It used to be that I could trawl the White Collar and Torchwood tags and be sure I'd caught the stockings of everyone on my f-list, but now everyone's a little more spread out, so if you could link me to your stocking that'd be good. If not, I'll try my best to find you all :D

There is less than a day left to sign up to [community profile] purimgifts! *waves hands encouragingly* It's my first time doing it, and I am excite. It's an exchange for works focusing on Jewish and/OR female characters. (I've signed up to [community profile] chocolateboxcomm for the first time too. ALL THE EXCHANGES THIS YEAR PLEASE AND THANK YOU. Snowflake Challenge is also well underway, and I really enjoyed it last year, so I'm hoping to make a late start on that.)

While we’re here, a final GYWO 2018 update! I didn’t write anything in October, in November I wrote a kink fic that I’m probably not going to ever post but I actually love, and in December I wrote my Yuletide fic. I finished up with 36, 836 words for the year, which is just under half my goal. 

 
36836 / 75000 words. 49% done!

As for days with writing, I think there were only around 40. I'm trying to look at that as a positive, in that my words to days-writing ratio was fairly high, so I just need to increase the amount of days! I’ve signed up again for this year and am hoping I can smash the target this time. Good luck to anyone else hoping to write this year!

Hello wonderful creator! )

Last year's scrapbook was mostly a success (in that I actually kept it updated)! I love looking back at all the media I've consumed in previous years, so here we go again for 2018!

Just had my first trick or treaters! \o/ The dog wasn't impressed.

Going to watch episode 2 of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina later to keep on theme. We watched episode 1 at the weekend and it was... Ok? Reserving judgement. I could have done with less spiders!

Keep safe and enjoy any leftover candy!

Hello lovely Yuletide writer!

Thank you so much in advance for writing something for me, and for taking the time to read this letter! This is my first time doing Yuletide so I'm super excited, and I'm sure I'll love whatever you create!

Things worked on: iZombie Liv/Blaine fic for [community profile] screenexchange  drabbles round; White Collar Peter/Neal fic for [community profile] slashorific ; White Collar Peter & Neal fic for [community profile] fandomgiftbox 

I haven't actually got around to posting these on my journal yet, they are posted on my shiny new AO3 account (or the fandomgiftbox comments). So, a question. Those of you with AO3 accounts, do you also post the fic fully on your journal, or do you just link to it? Opinions please and thank you!

Poll #20522 A03/Journals

Do you post the whole fic on your journal or just a link to Ao3?

One of my favourite ever livejournal comms, landofart, has just started its latest phase. It's open to absolutely any level of graphic artist, even if you've never opened up a graphics programme before, so why not come and play?



You can apply for a team HERE (Renaissance is the team to be on, just saying, not biased cos I mod it or anything).
cookiegirl: (Hold on HSM)
26 icons made for Landofart's ABC challenge (one icon per letter of the alphabet). I chose to make NYC-themed icons, because, Reasons :D

Just dropping by to ask if anyone would do me the favour of signing this petition to bring back Make It or Break It for Disney's new streaming platform. It was started a few days ago on Twitter and it's sadly lacking in support. Even if you don't watch/have never heard of Make It or Break It, it's worth signing, because when I do manage to convince you to watch it, you'll want more of it ;)


cookiegirl: (Willow - tired)
Some graphics for LandOfArt Phase 10, Challenge 9 - we had to choose everyday items from around our home, then make Tumblr graphics inspired by them

Everyday items chosen: Nutella, Teabags, Essie metallic gold "Daring Damsel" nail polish

3 Tumblr graphics: Nutella-based recipes; vintage tea; Lost Girl women
Links to Nutella recipes included, though I haven't tested them - yet ;)

EMOTIONS. GIFS. ALL THE SHOWS. )

So, super pleased that B99 and iZombie live to fight another day, relieved that we finally have confirmation on HTGAWM, and argh, gutted that there may be no more devilish Tom Ellis and no more Deckerstar :'(
cookiegirl: (Default)
For Landofart's challenges: Last Year's Highlights (12 Riverdale icons from the pilot episode) and Tic Tac Toe (Life Sentence icon, sigtag and picspam, all from the pilot episode). Thought I'd post them here in case anyone wanted to snag an icon :)

cookiegirl: (Lucifer worth it)
Hello any Lucifer-watchers!

I was wondering if you could help me with a question! Do we ever see Amenadiel drinking anything? ie. alcohol, etc? I seem to recall that he orders a glass of milk at a bar in one episode, but I'm not sure if I've either a) imagined that or b) got it from a fanfic or something? If anyone can confirm/deny, and maybe even give me an episode number, that would be awesome!

The reason I'm asking is that I got assigned Amenadiel as the character that Hannibal Lecter meets in my [community profile] intoabar  fic. I'm not at all inspired by this pairing but I do want to write something for the comm, even if it's a super short scene, so help on the drinking front would be great. (Also, if you have any plot ideas/requests, go ahead!!)

Thank you!

Snagged from everyone. YAY for memes going around. 

How about we do that thing where you give me a show/movie/fandom and I’ll tell you:

my favorite female character
my favorite male character
my favorite book/season/etc.
my favorite episode (if it’s a TV show)
my favorite cast member
my favorite ship
a character I’d die put a reasonable amount of effort into defending
a character I just can’t sympathize with
a character I grew to love
my anti otp

You can choose from anything in any of my scrapbooks or anything else you know/think I've watched :) I'm currently/recently viewing Hannibal, Life Sentence, Lucifer, iZombie, One Day at a Time, HTGAWM, Scorpion, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Superstore if that helps!

Oh hai, here I am bringing up the rear!

Day 13

Set some goals for the coming year

I've gone with fannish/internet/writing goals rather than personal goals, because... I'm not touching that hot mess right now! :D

Complete Snowflake Challenge!!
Complete my [community profile] getyourwordsout  pledge
Write my fics for the [community profile] collarcorner  exchange and [community profile] agegapexchange 
Finish a couple of the fics I've had on hold for years, especially Field Trip
Work on my original fiction/novel ideas/plots
Be a good mod at the two communities I'm involved in
Update DW/LJ regularly - and remember to actually include personal things :D
Leave prompts, comments and general encouragement for everyone <3
Support communities and challenges
Participate in All The Things \o/


Day 14

Create your own challenge

This is a challenge for me and for anyone else who will find it useful: Be Brave. There are so many great fandom things I missed out on in the past because I thought my writing wouldn't be good enough, or my art wouldn't be up to scratch, or I would end up defaulting, or whoever I got assigned in an exchange would be disappointed with their gift. And even now that I'm more confident about joining in, there's still a lot I worry about. But no matter what you think of your own work/ideas/opinions, there's someone out there who wants to see it and share it with you, whether it's a huge fic or a bizarre prompt you'd like filled or a few random thoughts about how hot someone looked in the last episode of something. So be brave, share, participate, give back to fandom, introduce yourself to new people, be weird and passionate and whatever you want to be.


Day 15

Write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers

That's a big list of things to love on! I could try and be eloquent, but, I'm just gonna say: I LOVE YOU. 

I love you, fandom, for being crazy and excitable and obsessed and unashamed about your passions. For being welcoming to new people and being just as pleased as me to find someone who shares your loves. For making me a better writer, for giving me a creative outlet, for supporting me in rough times and for making me feel never really truly alone.

I love you, f-list, those who've been with me for years and years, and those who I'm just getting to know. Thank you for putting up with me :)
