DAY ONE: In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favourite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator

I never post here any more because a) I'm super busy with uni and a million other things, b) twitter is my fandom place and it seems silly to be posting about nonsense when I'm just tweeting about it already. but it's holiday season and there's fannish exchanges and things have been happening so here are some recs from the holiday exchange season, mostly just bandom_hols and yuletide, although I might throw in a few things I've read recently that need reccing.

you are what you love )

Hi everybody! I know I've been away for ages and I miss it so much. I wish I had more of a chance to be more active in fandom, even though bandom seems pretty quiet. Just because bandom itself is pretty quiet doesn't mean I don't want to be hanging out and talking with people. Conventional Weapons seems to be shaping up to be an awesome album and MCR themselves seem to be slowly coming out of hibernation. I can't wait to download the songs (I've listened to them but not downloaded them yet. So far The Light Behind Your Eyes is my favorite)

Empires new video is great. Not like, super interesting, but it has Sean firing a flaming arrow (whhhhhyy bb do not do dangerous stuff you will DIE) and Max smiling and walking around and Doing Stuff. and Tom smiles! It's beautiful.

Life in La Hoya continues much as normal. Thankfully Sandy did not do much damage to us. We lost running water to the village for two weeks but nothing more serious than that. My students set their exams last week and did alright. I nearly lost my mind over grading but I love teaching and the students continue to be a joy, even when they're fricking pains in my ass.

One think I've found unable to do in the DR is write. I think it's the inspiration just not being there and also not being able to bounce ideas off people regularly. I can do a bit here and there but it's mostly tinkering, not anything that could be continued real writing. SO, a meme! A WIP meme, to be exact. I'll list names/summaries of all my WIPS, unfinished, never-to-be-finished and plotbunnies and if you comment with one of the names, I'll post an except or write a bit more of it or answer questions about it, whatever you want.

WIPs )

I feel terrible and have a hundred other things to do, so naturally I recorded nearly 15 minutes of me talking about One Direction. This is all credit to [livejournal.com profile] oanja and her One Direction Voice Meme! Please record your own, I don't want to be alone!


1. How did you get sucked into the One Direction madness? (do you want to blame someone in particular?) How long ago did it happen?
2. What do you wish the next record will be like?
3. Who is your favourite? (and don't say you love them equally. If you can't judge otherwise, look into your 1D folder on your computer, which member's photos have you saved the most? or whose photos do you reblog the most on Tumblr) What is it about this person you like so much? Has your favourite changed during the time you've been involved in the fandom?
4. Who is your least favourite? (I know this might seem horrible, but try. We know you still love them even if they're not your favourite.) Has that changed?
5. Have you seen them live? If so, how was it? If not, would you like to?
6. Do you have an otp in this fandom? If you do, tell us a bit about why the pairing is your favourite?
7. Do you have a One Direction pairing that you don't particularly ship/like to read?
8. Do you have favourite story tropes? What are they?
9. Is there a 1D fic you wish someone would write?
10. Are you working on a story right now? Do you want to tell us a little about it?
11. Anything else you'd like to add?

I promise to try and get better but for all the people on my circle but not my flist, I made a post about how [livejournal.com profile] dancinbutterfly needs some help with some crazy RL stuff she's got going on and could totally use your help. She's got some of her stuff up for auction, clothes, ceramics and posters, and you can commisson some of her writing if you want, either original or ficcish.

My post's here, with all the links and things. If you can't help out monetarily, which I totally understand, then pass the news around. Do you know someone who wants a Taylor Lautner poster? Or some pretty cool ceramics? Or an honest-to-god pair of Sais?

I said on twitter I was going to make this post after I finished this week and its awful round of exams but I call bullshit. I've given up even thinking about revising for my math paper tomorrow. What's gonna happen is gonna happen and I'm just going to have to suck it up.

Last week I went away on a school trip with the Spanish department. Since we had four airports and three flights (to get to Spain guys. Scotland is not that far from Spain. and yet.) I decided I should try out this new-fangled podfic thing. I tweeted asking people for recs and masterlist and [livejournal.com profile] isweedan helped me out. This is what happened.

conclusion: podfic is awesome )
