moonlettuce: (Avengers: Clint)
So, even though I said a month ago that I was going to set up the new PC, I kind of didn't. Oh, don't get me wrong, I totally went to set him up and then realized I'd bought the wrong adapter for my monitor. (I needed a DVI to VGA and bought a VGA to DVI. Personally, I entirely blame Clint Barton and the fact that Currys had the Avengers trailers playing on some of their TVs and I was so busy watching Jeremy Renner's arms that I didn't really pay attention to what I was picking up.)

But tonight, I finally pulled my finger out and got him* set up *\o/*

Now I've just got to get used to Windows 7...

And, to keep in with the Jeremy Renner theme, I may have just ordered The Unusuals off Amazon. I had a gift voucher for Amazon.com and it's been lovingly used on Jeremy Renner**. Which means The Unusuals and Love Comes To The Executioner will be winging their way across the Atlantic and into my sweaty little palms any day now.

* His name's Clint. Or, to give him his Sunday name 'Clint. Barton, Not Eastwood' as that's how I seem to be referring to him as every time someone side eyes me about the name***.

** Well, not on Jeremy Renner, since they don't actually sell him on Amazon mores the pity. If they had sold him, though, that voucher would have been put to epic use. Epic, I tell you. EPIC.

*** It's at this point I feel the need to point out that everyone so far who has side eyed me about the name isn't a geek and therefore all seem to slide towards Eastwood as the first Clint they think of. Philistines.

So, y'all have seen the Avengers trailer that aired during the Superbowl, yes? No spoilers, but that was a big damn mrrroaw for Jeremy Renner's arms and Tom Hiddleston's voice. So much of me is going to be disappointed if a good half of this movie isn't Loki and Clint fucking with the occasional appearance by Tony to offer critique.

I was at [livejournal.com profile] lost_house's at the weekend and started to pimp people into Clint Barton with just the use of Jeremy Renner's ass. What can I say, it's a damn fine ass ::grin::

I still haven't got the new computer set up yet, but that's mainly because I haven't cleared all the stuff off the old computer yet. It feels kind of sad referring to Lorne as 'the old computer' but he's seven years old and I have the shiny to look forward to.

Of course, not yet having Clint (like I was going to call him anything else...) set up is that I'm writing stuff in longhand as opposed to straight into Word. However, the operative word is writing, so I shouldn't really be minding how I'm doing it.

Linked in with that, I've never felt the urge to write a fic set in a dom/sub 'verse, but I have the opening line of 'Clint was the only sub on the Avengers' running through my head. And when I was sitting in the bath debating on whether to go for the cassis shower gel or the honey (I went for the cassis and now I smell of blackcurrant, just in case you were interested) this evolved in my head into a 'Clint is the sextoy of the entire team' thing and now I can't get the sentence 'They rotate who gets him first, but it's always Coulson who has him last' out of my mind.

Then again, maybe I should stop writing an LJ post and just write the fic ::grin::

* But only in a way that links to The Avengers

I'm going to be away overnight tomorrow due to work and this was the process I've just gone through while packing my bag:

Notebook? Check.
Actual book? Check.
Other notebook which has half-written story in it that I might finish? Check.
Is it worth taking another book with me? Okay, I'll only be gone one night, but still, you never know what could happen? Check
Third notebook with yet another half-written story in it that I might finish? Check.

::sits down to check e-mail and surf online::

::Two hours later::

Me: I'm pretty sure I've forgotten something.

::continues to surf online and check LJ and ooh, new fic--::

Me: Bugger! Clothes!

Fear me, people, for I managed to pack five books into my bag for one overnight stay and forget the actual clothes I'll need to wear.

I haven't actually updated in forever (well, okay, two weeks), but not because of anything horrible. I haven't had the desktop on for a while and have been surfing via the iPad, but not actually updating anything but Twitter.

Christmas was quiet and full of presents from awesome friends who know what I like (giant creatures eating people, robots and apocalypses - sometimes all in the same movie).

New Year contained an [livejournal.com profile] alyse, a [livejournal.com profile] temaris and a [livejournal.com profile] catwalksalone, along with a rather delicious gingerbread house that we built :D

What I didn't do in the couple of weeks I had off work was to write all the stories I wanted to write for [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking proving, once again, that the one thing I really excel at is procrastination.

Also, I have cold and am full of snot.

The Good: I have completed all of the shopping/making-of-stuff that needed to be done for [livejournal.com profile] beren_writes Christmas party. This makes me more organised than I have been in years.

The Bad: I set my alarm for arse o'clock this morning to go into work for an early meeting, only to have organiser of said meeting turn up 40 minutes later, looking confused as to why people were waiting for her and saying that she 'must have hit the wrong time for the meeting to start' when setting it up. Grrr...

The Good: As people on Twitter already know, I have decreed Vaseline to be awesome *\o/*

The Bad: I'm still ensconced in a blanket of apathy when it comes to writing. I want to write, I just can't seem to make myself actually do it.

The Good: I'm taking the last two weeks of the year off work. The plan is to do nothing but veg on the couch and watch DVDs. So far, I'm approving of this plan.

The Bad: No one seems to want to play in the [livejournal.com profile] erik_charles 12 Days of X-Mas comment!fic meme. This makes me sad.

The Good: I get to see most of my awesome people this weekend :D

On space pirates and kink memes:
I should be writing space pirates, so why am I looking at the XMFC kink memes and going 'I could do that... And that... And that one, too...'

On decapitated snails:
Also, there were decapitated snails in my street last night. I'm not sure if someone had been at them with a shovel, or if this means there's some sort of psychotic snail out there who has fashioned a sword from bits of his own shell and is now going around lopping off the heads of his brethren*. Dude, it's hard being a snail.

On tattoos:
Various people (okay, two people, anyway) have posted on LJ/Twitter about getting XMFC-related tattoos recently. Both are quote based and making me want to get the two lit tattoos I've wanted for years. One of them is 'Denn die toten reiten schnell,' which is a quote from Dracula. (Well, technically, it's a quote from Bürger's Lenore, which Stoker then used in Dracula.) The quote translates as 'For the dead travel fast' and I fell in love with the line when I first read Dracula way back when.

The other lit ink I've always wanted is the quote from the gates of Hell from Dante's Inferno. For this one, though, I swing between having the entire quote, or just the last bit. The last three lines are the ones I'm in love with, but my completion self would want all of it done.

Quote under the cut, for anyone interested )

And then, of course, the question is where to put them and what font to use.

Also, part of me is strangely amused by the thought of having 'Peace was never an option' wrapped around my ankle.

* Does this also mean there's a snail equivalent of the BAU, going from garden to garden and profiling killer snails? "I say male, young, definitely a slow mover. Mother issues, possibly..."

Ah, new fandoms. My desktop wallpaper is no longer Dean/Cas, but now Charles/Erik.

It's weird, because I'm thinking of X-Men: FC as a new fandom but, technically, X-Men is my oldest fandom. I read my first X-Men comic when I was seven (and then got said comic signed by Chris Claremont last October when he appeared at London Expo). I've pretty much been collecting since then.

I read X-Men fic, I'm on some comms and I've had at least one X-Men icon in the mix during my entire life on LJ. Hell, the first fanfic I wrote was an X-Men/Highlander crossover (complete with required Mary Sue ::grin::), but there are so many times I don't think of it as one of my fandoms. Which is daft. I mean, I have the comics, I have the figurines, the artwork, the absolute utter and total desire to stab Ben Raab in the face with a spork for what he did with Excalibur when he was writing it.

When you look at it, X-Men's been a part of my life since I first picked up a comic and read about Ororo being seduced by Dracula. My two oldest OTPs are Logan/Ororo and Charles/Erik.

So, new fandom? Old fandom? Maybe I should just call it an absolute certainty and be done with it ::grin::

So, I realised I haven't posted in, like, a bazillion years. Well, okay, in a week, but you know what I mean.

My life's pretty much consisted of work, work, work for the past month, as I've been transferred onto a new team that's so far behind on what they're doing that it's not even funny.

I've experienced epic fail this month with [livejournal.com profile] mmom, as I've only actually posted four stories. I need to write more! This shall be my resolution*. Especially since I've signed up for [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang.

Also, I have the weird urge to vid Love The Way You Lie (Part II) for Dean/Cas.

* Unfortunately, I'm really crappy at keeping resolutions...

So, on Friday I went to see Red Riding Hood with a friend from work (and was all sad!face at the fact that none of the adverts were for Thor, Captain America, Green Lantern or X-Men: First Class). It was kind of cheesy in a Twilight-for-werewolves kind of way (although with less sparkles and more fur) but I enjoyed it. I did, however, start mentally recasting it with the actors from Supernatural as I was watching it, which meant it became this epic Jensen/Misha with unrequited Jensen/Jared fic in my head.

Of course, the problem with that is that it made me think that I really must write the werewolf Jensen/Misha fic I've got partly plotted out (this also contains no sparkly werewolves). Which then led me onto thinking that I want to finish the SPN!Tremors fic I never got done for [livejournal.com profile] spn_cinema. And then there's the 007!SPN fic that I have in my head. Luckily, I've signed up for [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang, so I'm guessing one of them will get written for that. Although, knowing me, I'll write something entirely different. Maybe I should just do a 10,000 work PWP ::grin:: Just how many way can Dean and Cas shag, anyway*?

I mooched into town on Saturday and bought cat food. Fear me and my exciting life.

And today was the epic day of all days. Today I was triumphant. Today, I managed to get the cover off the lightbulb in the bathroom. Today, no one had to pee in the dark** *\o/*

Also, it's full moon tonight. Rawr.

* This may need a poll...

** Unless they wanted too, which is an entirely different matter.
