[sticky post] It was a matter of time: friends only journal

I've finally decided that I want my LJ being friends locked. So yeah, from now on this journal it's friends only.

But why?Collapse )

Here we go again!



Al final, tras muchos "que si si, que si no" nos hemos vuelto a liar la manta a la cabeza y vamos allá de nuevo un año mas.
Personalmente me apetecía seguir al menos una edición mas...  Es que de la anterior, si soy sincera lo recuerdo todo como una nebulosa! Mudarme de casa 3 veces, una de ellas incluyendo cambio de país, con una cuarta mudanza a la vista, los nervios de buscar trabajo en otro país, de tener que pasar por currar de cualquier cosa hasta que te sale finalmente algo bueno que te va a hacer sentir valorada como profesional de nuevo, y a la misma vez estar aterrada por tantos cambios y nuevas responsabilidades... Y se que gaia_naturae estaba mas o menos como yo, que para algo estábamos ya no viviendo juntas en la misma casa sino en la misma room durante unos meses! Así que lo cierto es que si el tema tiro last year es porque aviss se lo curro muchisimo. A ver, se que como todos las ediciones nos repartimos el trabajo mas o menos por igual, es solo que yo apenas recuerdo esos meses fuera de mis ralladas personales. Así que se que estuve ahí y viví las decepciones de tener tanta gente abandonando pero no se, lo siento como si le hubiese vivido otra persona. Totalmente detached...

Y sip, uso un teclado ingles so kk acentos y enyes (gmail es mi amigo y corrige pero en fin...) así que ahora que abro de nuevo la LJ season (siempre ligada a tener que estar organizando el AI) o bien escribiré en inglish pitinglish o en un chapurreo mixto de castellano con inglesadas y catalanadas de por medio. Gotta love languages!

Oh fandom... the things you make me do!

So yeah, still alive, still kicking ass, and still crazy in love with the Generation Kill fandom.

And I'm so much in love over that fandom, that when one of my favourite authors has an amazing crossover with The West Wing, I can't help my self! I need to watch it. So basically, I may have spent 40£ in the whole The West Wing the complete series because I've read so many times kahtyasofia's series that I needed to learn more about the character from The West Wing.

Happiness in a package ^_^
Oh! I'm living in the lovely Chester, in Cheshire, which my mind can't stop linking to the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland story.

ps. Chester is on TV right now! The Planners in BBC2 http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01qxmcq
ps2. all my GK recs here & here, enjoy!

Flying free...

And no, ain't no talking about that iconic song from my adolescence years.
But sometimes you feel exactly like a load is been taken off your shoulders once you have made your mind.
You could say I'm running away, or free falling, and you may be right. But, it's not only the economic situation in this country, which let me tell you could make Death cry. It's the whole society system. 
Last year was amazing, I felt like we really could change the world and even if I knew it could take years I was still hoping. One year later, I can't go on with only being a few working every fucking day. And although every time there's more people going out their homes to take the streets and say "No! Stop! We have had enough!"; although I still believe the change will come and I still have hope, I need a situational change or as a person I'm going to crack any day now.
I need some fresh air, get some perspective and improve my professional and personal self-esteem.

So yeah... I'm going abroad like I did five years ago. And like last time, I've already have some wonderful people waiting for me --not aviss this time, but gaia_naturae. And what makes it all even better it's that I'm not going on my own! morgana_avallon is leaving as well! 

I feel so liberated. I feel like I have the whole world on my own hands, and just for feeling like that it's all more than worth it.

Flying-Free

Hooray!

I've got an extra pack of 100 icon I don't remember buying (or getting as a present neither), so now instead of the 100/120 icons I though I had, I've got space to 80 extra icons till the 202 it seems I've paid for. 
I am soooooooooooo happy! Now I can upload tons of lovely icons of my latest addictions. I've already started with some Generation Kill, because Nate Fick (HBO character played by Stark Sands) has the most beautiful green eyes I've even seen.

Jumping & surfing through fandoms

So I finally decided not to sign up to the Avengers exchange because lately I've been jumping from fandom to fandom, and surfing through a fandom which usually makes me jump to another fandom that I don't feel like I would be faithful enough to my love for Tony and Steve to be able to fullfill my assignment.

But let's talk about the wonderful world of fandom. I love discovering new fandom, I really do! But do you know what I love even more than discovering a new fandom? Go back to an old one to catch up with all the new stuff.


Beware! Random thoughts & hot menCollapse )

¡Entren y vean!

Pues eso ladies and gentelmen, que ya hemos abierto la paradeta y hasta el día 2 de setiembre (si no ando equivocada, que lo digo de memoria) está abierto el periodo de inscripción en esta nueva edición del Amigo Invisible Sin Fronteras que organizamos ya desde hace un tiempo las señoritas gaia_naturae, aviss y yo misma en aisinfronteras.

El post de inscripción lo podéis encontrar en este LINK, donde a su vez están linkeado los post con las normas y la Guía para Completar el Formulario. Y no, no es broma. Ya sé que es muy largo y muy aburrido todo lo que os explicamos, y seguro que muchas diréis "pero si no es tan complicado", y es cierto, no lo es. Pero luego siempre surgen dudas y siempre nos llegan comentarios de errores a la hora de completar el formulario. Así que please, pretty please con una super cerecita y pepitas de chocolate on top: leeros bien ambos post, leeros las normas, copiad el formulario en un doc o un txt y tomaros un par de días para completar el formulario y revisarlo, antes de enviárnoslo.

¡Formularios bonitos hacen a las mods contentas!

Pues eso, "we are Oscar Mike, gents!"

Of friendship and crazyness

Miss aviss and I have a very pecualiar kind of friendship. It's hilarious, it's amazing and sometimes it's not healthy at all.
We dare each other to do crazy stuff -"I dare you to translate Freudian slip!",  we send the other the most glorious fics -OMG! You HAVE TO read this!- and sometimes the most disgusting and crackish ones as well -OMG! OMG! OMG! Read this! Eeeeeeewwww, did you knew about that kink? Really, aouch!-, we spam each other when we start a new fandom so we can be together sharing the craziness -what do you mean you've watched Avengers and have yet to read a fic from that fandom!?-, we are crazy enough to organize with our comrade of arms gaia_naturae an anual multifandom exchange for the last fice years.
And sometimes we encourage and try to discourage each other to sign up to crazy fandomish stuff. So I try to stop her from enlisting to four different fests or exchanges and she just implies she's going to enrol on a fic exchange from one of my fandom addiction of the moment and she knows I'm done. That's how we work.

So I'm absolutely convinced that when she tweeted about filling up the form to the avengersfest, she knew I'd start thinking about it non-stop!



avengersfest FAQs, Rules, and Dates Signups are open here!

So yeah, still a few days to decide what to do (like I'm fooling anybody...)

Here we go again!

Pues sí, ya estamos en agosto. Y eso significa que ha llegado de nuevo ese momento en el que se empiezan a calentar los motores del aisinfronteras.



En breve colgaremos las normas y el resto de instrucciones, pero por el momento aquí os dejamos algunos banners para esparcir el amor ;) Cosa que ya sabéis que os agradecemos muchísmo ^_^

Pues eso, ¡nos leemos! And let's the stress begins! 


And life goes on...

And I haven't written an update since November (bad me, baaaaaaad!). It's nothing out of the norm, LJ and I... we have this weird love-ignorance kind of relationship. I mean, I love it because it give me tons of fics to read but I ignore it because I usually have tons of other stuff to do and other blogs/social-whatever to update.

Just wanted to say that yes I'm still reading ST fic (just check my memories! I believe I crossed the 25 saves line yesterday) and I am as well absolutely in love with NCIS because it brings me the possibility to read either slash, gen or het and that's just awesome!

Anyway, I needed to write some words here because it's been the kind of day that remembers me why I love fandom & fanfiction as a hobby so much: it's cheap, it's funny, it's weird, and just when you think you've got it all figured out then it comes and surprise you all over again.

I should be writing... but tea is better

But we are all well  aware of my fondness for procrastination. So I was thinking is this lovely remedy that I discovered years ago for the sleepless nights. It's an herbal tea, gorgeous scent and even more gorgeous taste.
It's called Sleepytime from Celestial Seasoning.


The thing is, you drink it, you sleep, there's no turn around. So I shouldn't drink tonight, you know. Because I'm supposed to write til my phalanges fall or my eyes just blow up. But it's been so long since I had a nice cuppa of Sleepytime... 
Well, we will see...

Just remember, if you are sleep deprived, give it a try!


Necesito un gran elenco de personajes para la misión de mi Nanowrimo, pero en plan tres equipos como el original de Inception. Uno obviamente es el original con los personajes de la peli, pero los otros dos (o solo uno, aún está por decidir) estoy por marcarme un crossover-AU a mi elección (y adicción). Más que nada porque ya he bautizado a un personaje previamente planeado con mismo nombre aunque apellido diferente (parecido pero no igual). ¿Una pista? Les digo las iniciales a ver si me lo adivinan: HS o SH depende como lo quieran decir (y aquí ya he añadido otra pista).  
Francamente, me ayuda a visualizar a los personajes, y yo soy muy visual, así que creo que lo voy a tirar pa'lante y al menos me lo voy a pasar "teta" (porque las tetas molan y son bonitas -en general, las hay feas claro-).

Pues eso...

Ah! Voy mega retrasada y hoy solo he escrito 200 palabras, pero mañana PROMETO ESCRIBIR MUCHO... diría 3000 pero es demasiado optimista por mi parte... pongamos entre 2000 y 2500, eh?


"¡¿Dónde coño está mi musa hostia puta joder!?
(ay cari, soy de un fino que ni se me ve)

I actually just have one thing to say: I don't understand Scrivener.

I've downloaded the Nano version of this year and I don't know how the hell it works. I the worst part is that I don't have time enough to learn it. So here I am, using my ol' OpenOffice boy. 


duuuhhhh...

Y como ando procrastinando, me duele el cuello una barbaridad, no me apetece hacer nada a parte de sofá-manta-peli y mucho no escribir las 4000 words que llevo de retraso, pues curioseo la flist.

Y como la señorita helenadax ha colgado un video trekkie K/S yo he pensado en colgar uno K/M (y así ya de paso que pierdo el tiempo, también fangirleo)

Pues eso...



The night you came into my life
well it took the bones of me, took the bones of me
You blew away my storm and strife
And shook the bones of me, shook the bones of me
By the way, I do know why you stayed away
I will keep tongue-tied next time 

Update

So about the Nanowrimo? I'm just gonna say one word: fuck!

Leer el fic "Bocados de Realidad" 1/2Collapse )


Ya lo haré mañana...

Que es lo que me digo siempre que me toca re-publicar por todos lados algo que he escrito para algún exchange. Y nada, que ahora con todo eso del Nanowrimo me he acordado y he pensado "ale pues, quizás es buen momento para ponerme". Todo por procrastinar y no estar escribiendo, of course!

Así que nada, ignorad los post siguientes con fics de los últimos años.

OMG! There are aubergines everywhere...

And I really don't like aubergines but it doesn't matter, it's an inner joke that doesn't make sense at all.

The thing is, in less than 24h I'll be getting into Nanowrimo, and I'm extremely nervous... I'm not sure I'm gonna be able to do it (write the 50000 word in just a month) but I hope to have fun.

So let the party (and the anxious times) begin!

New guilty pleasure

LOVE IT!

Where's my barista?

I blame fanfiction for my high expectation in finding love.
But I specially blame fanfiction on my high expectations in finding "the love of my life" working as a barista in a nice coffee shop.

Every single time a I go for a caffè on a coffee shop (and here I'm talking about a coffee shops that serves you more than your overall espresso, caffè with milk -yes, in Spain we have this, a latte is a different story- and "cortados") I expect to find that gorgeous man that smiles to me and decides to prepare me a different brewing different to what I asked for because "I'm gonna like it", or something like that. And yes, of course, I would come back for more coffees and we'd fall madly in love and have puppies, babies and roses.

And that's why I hate fanfiction sometimes.



First, we don't have that many "nice coffee shops" here in Spain (even in Barcelona!), we are more plain-cafeteria-kind. We have Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts and a few coffee shops that really know how to make a capuccino, a latte, or a real cafe mocha. Then we don't have "baristas" persé, we have a bunch of kids working part time while they are studying. And obviously they don't have imaginative people that makes you from the scratch a new mixed caffè just for you.

So yeah, I blame fanfiction. And now I might or might no be planing on going on a coffee shop hunting. I'm not probably going to find the love of my life but I seriously hope to find a place where they prepare a mean "caffè mocha with soy milk and no cream, thank you very much", damnit!

Oh! And all this rambling comes from my late yesterday night reading, the every fandom needs a coffee shop AU fic. And so far in Star Trek AOS this is Common Grounds (Summary: Modern day AU. Leonard McCoy tries online dating. A story of coffee, printing, and the Internet.) And of cousse never forget about the beautiful-but-I-hate-that-this-never-happens-to-me Inception coffee shop AU: I've Got Nothing To Do Today But Smile (The Only Living Boy in New York) (Arthur's a corporate lawyer, Eames owns the coffee shop across the street, and all good love stories start with a quadruple shot latte.)

So, coffee anyone? ;)

Crazy things you do with & for your friends

Like becoming bi-shipper on a fandom you though you were one-ship-kind-of-girl.
In aviss favor, I had to say that the fic of awesomeness is like the best thing ever. Ok, it may be one of the two best things ever!
Observations (by anon_j_anon) Is the K/S perfect fic, and Switch (by ceres_libera)is its perfect counterpart on the K/M side.

If I could I'd gladly do a ménage à trois with both fics. Just saying.

And here I am now, doing background research and planing time lines, plots and bunnies for that crazy friend of mine. But to who am I lying? I'm enjoying every bloody minute of it, goddammit!

It's a bloody conspiracy!

Wonderful dreamlittleyo (who was one of my favourite Inception authors and the best Cob/Arthur writers) is also writing ST:XI fics.
I think it's a conspiracy!
Favourite authors, best fics ever (will talk about this another day), funny icons, hot guy... oh please kill me now!
The day before to my trip to Vietnam and Cambodia I downloaded several different fandoms fics to my kindle. I had the intention to just download the longest fics from the two fandoms I was reading at the moment (X-Men: First Class and Inception), but just decided to download some Criminal Minds as well. And then something caught my attentions: Star Trek
AO3 has a large supply of Star Trek fics of all the series and universes.
So why not I asked myself. Just the largest or with more hits in case I read all the other fics.

There was one that it picked my curiosity (So Wise We Grow by Deastar) and for some reason, once I was at the airport waiting to my flight to Warsaw (where I was to meet with aviss and Mb), I decided to start reading it instead of all the other fics.

At this point I have to say that I was in no way a foreign to ST fandom and universe. I'd watched TOS and TNG as a kid in the Catalan TV, I later watched some episodes of Voyager on the local TV. And after the reboot movie (which I loved it) I got into the fandom for a little while, reading some K/S fics and some gen fics. But I let it go quite easily, as I belive I was, at the time immersed, in other fandoms.

The thing is, I finished So Wise We Grow in my second day in Vietnam and instead of going for another fandom I decided to go on reading all I had downloaded of Star Trek. And when I run out of ST fics, I went to AO3 and downloaded a few more, and at the return flights I decided to close the circle reading the fic that made me began my travel no just around the Great Mekong.

A here we are now... feeling like maybe I've found a new home, a fandom large and resilient enough as once upon a time it was for me the Harry Potter fandom. I bought The Original Series' DVD, I'm getting my hand in The Next Generation, and I'm reading. I'm reading like I have not read in a very long time. And oh my! There are fics and FICS, and I'll talk about this capital thing another day but let's just say that I might have already found my cup of tea in this fandom.

Dif-tor heh smusma
