Yoinked from [personal profile] kristen999, and like her I won't be tagging anyone. Truthfully, I might be doing this because I got a rare kudos on one of the stories I'm going to rec - set in a small, old fandom. I actually adore everything I wrote in that and a tiny part of me hates that so few will ever see it. #ego

Fic authors self rec! When you get this, reply with your favorite five fics that you've written, then pass on to at least five other writers (◠‿◠✿)

Fandom: Emergency!
Title and link: Theory of Relativity
Genre: Slash, Johnny/Roy
Summary: Roy DeSoto had known he was different from the time he'd hit puberty. Until Johnny Gage walked into his life, he'd been able to conform to societal norms and deny a part of himself.
Recced because: It's one of those that I will shamelessly read once in a while myself and wonder how I wrote it. It's heartbreaking and bittersweet, as any tale of two bi or gay men in the firefighting profession in the 1970s would likely be. It also helped spawn a whole series exploring what I imagine to be a very delicate and dangerous situation.

Fandom: H50
Title and link: Pitching Woo
Genre: Slash, Danny/Steve
Summary: In which Danny pitches (and then accidentally catches) woo.
Recced because: I kind of feel like this fic was a drop mic moment and had I never written another story in this fandom it would have been a-okay.

Fandom: Supernatural
Title and link: Sunflowers
Genre: Gen, horror
Summary: Something evil is cutting a path across the United States, and stopping it might cost the boys their lives. But they're hunters. They do what they have to do, no matter what.
Recced because: Another seldom-read story. I tend to like the ones no one else much does, which I suppose should teach me something. This story is dark and the format is a bit different to my usual, esp in this fandom.

Fandom:Emergency!
Title and link: Perhaps They Are Not Stars
Genre: Slash, Johnny/Roy
Summary: How Johnny and Roy came to be together, as witnessed from the outside.
Recced because: I love this little story. It's smack dab in the middle of an entire series written around a year's holidays, but kind of encapsulates the entire feel in 7000 short words.

Fandom: Stargate SG-1
Title and link: Salvage Operation
Genre: Gen
Summary: Jack and Daniel learn about the changes and constants in their friendship, with the help of some pretty nasty people and circumstances.
Recced because: To be honest, most of what I wrote for SG-1 makes me cringe. I was a "young" writer then, fumbling around trying to find my voice and all the while abusing adverbs. But this one has always been a favorite, and therapeutic at a time when the show was experiencing a change behind the scenes which, frankly, showed. And it was either rec this one or The Soul Senses... yes. See what I did there? ;)

At the suggestion of [personal profile] tkeylasunset

Total number of words I wrote in 2012: 243,587 apparently (!)
My #1 fandom by word count is: Hawaii Five-0
My #2 fandom by word count is: Emergency!
My #3 fandom by word count is: Supernatural
Next year, I'm thinking about dipping my toes into this fandom. Maybe. Probably.: Oh, man, I do not have the energy for another fandom. I write when the bug hits me; so far no more biting has occurred.

The story that I wrote which got the most reviews/comments is: Cost To Cure
The story that was the most fun to write: The Butts and Hands Series, though I have a tie here with another little series.
The story that was the hardest to write: Dark Was The Night, also tied for first. Both dealing with homophobia, go figure.
The story that I would rewrite if I could: Haha, all of them.
The story that I would unwrite if I could: I regret none of them.
The story that I didn't write which I enjoyed reading the most: Pō Pouli ‘A‘aki (A Night So Dark It Bites With the Teeth) (Blasted people with blasted talent, anyway! ;))

Something I tried writing that was brand new to me: POV from an inflatable coccyx cushion. Twice! ;)

Other information about my writing I'd like to share: I enjoy learning how to do it better each time, tweaking my style but remaining true and clear to my own voice.
superbadgirl: (Urdu)
When you see this, post another Supernatural quote in your LJ. Let's see how long this can go on.

Just one? One from each brother. Tada!

Dean: Dude, you fugly.

Sam: Wait, there's no such thing as unicorns?
superbadgirl: (confused genius)
All right. I've got a tummy ache on top of wicked Girl Thing issues, so I'm avoiding any real activity for the moment.  Figured I might as well do this meme, though I'm not sure I remember which stories are my last twenty. Hmmm.

Post the first lines from your last 20 stories and look for patterns.




1) Meghan Schmidt couldn’t believe she’d let herself get talked into playing the stupid game in the first place.

2) Children ran through the gutters reeking of waste, oblivious to the fact life was so much better mere steps away.

3) Dean ran.

4) There was no warning.

5) 
In his dreams, the moon was always full and the night hazy blue.

6) Sam Winchester knew his concern for Dean smothered his brother, and so of late he had tried harder to stem any outward displays of it.

7)
The sun gleamed down from high in the sky, casting a cheery glow onto the Earth.

8)
When they were in Lemmon, South Dakota, working on what they (mostly Dean) suspected was a bogus case, Dean came back with dinner one night and discovered Sam at it in their motel room.

9) He heard rolling thunder and the echoes of his own voice screaming and an ocean of static and sobbing and keening and nothing, nothing, nothing was right and never would be again.

10) Sam stared down at Jake.

11) The ceiling of the motel room was cracked with little hairline fractures that looked kind of like cobwebs to him.

12) “You promised me, Dean, and I know that it was shitty of me to do,” Sam said.

13)
“Don’t be scared, Dean.”

14) Special Agent Tony DiNozzo shoved the last bite of his breakfast burrito into his mouth and chewed it haphazardly.

15) Mary Winchester’s sleep had been restless for a while, primarily due to the humid heat of summer but also because the baby had only very recently started sleeping through the night.

16) Dean was being a total pain in the ass.

17) He didn’t mind snow that much, except for the fact Baby didn’t do well with it.

18) Dean hated his father very much.

19) “Are you sure this is what we’re supposed to be doing with it?” Daniel said with a grimace. “It feels kind of uncomfortable.”

20) Charlie Eppes blew at an errant curl of hair.


All this really tells me, personally, is that I haven't written much lately. I had to go back two years for some of these. Yikes.
superbadgirl: (dino music)
They feel bad in the way someone with bum knees feels when she smacks one of said knees against the edge of a metal filing cabinet. Which I just did, and it brought tears. TEARS! That's how awful these songs feel.

1) Winter is here again, O Lord. [livejournal.com profile] el1ie guessed Journey as the artist, but not the song. I'll put it out of its misery. Wheel in the Sky.
2) I want to see you smile again, like diamonds in the dust.
3) We was walking through the park, trying to get home before too dark.
4) Feel sick after every meal.
5) People I know, places I go, make me feel tongue-tied. [livejournal.com profile] el1ie correctly guessed the song as Here is Where the Story Ends by The Sundays.
6) Hearts cannot be broken, they're small, squishy things.
7) I would like just one glass of water. [livejournal.com profile] el1ie got the song title here, One Glass of Water by Band of Bees.
8) He led you to this hiding place.
9) In the middle of the summer, I'm not sleeping.
10) Jesus the Mexican boy, born in a truck on the fourth of July. [livejournal.com profile] el1ie also sussed the title of this one as Jesus the Mexican Boy by Iron and Wine.

SPN fans should really get #1, and the song title is in both #7 and #10. Feel free to Google or use whatever search engine you prefer.


It's amazing how super busy I am, yet can find the time to post here.

Last night, I dreamed I had a roommate obsessed with not leaving furniture marks on the carpet, so we had to rearrange the furniture every other day. At the very least, she'd demand I move the sofa three inches one way or another. It was stressful. I woke up in a cold sweat.
superbadgirl: (dino music)
[livejournal.com profile] ozreisondid this a few days ago. Figured I'd try it again.

Put your iTunes on shuffle and for the first 20 songs that come up, list the first line. Post them and see how many of them your flist can get.

1) I found my thrill...  [personal profile] tejas got this one. Blueberry Hill by Fats Domino.
2) Slow down, you move too fast. In a masterful one-two punch, [personal profile] tejasalso got this one. Feelin' Groovy by S&G.
3) Winter is here again, O Lord.
4) I want to see you smile again, like diamonds in the dust.
5) We was walking through the park, trying to get home before too dark.
6) Feel sick after every meal.
7) All our times have come, here but now they're gone. Don't Fear the Reaper by BOC guessed correctly by [personal profile] strangevisitor7 first, and [personal profile] el1ie a minute later.
8) Readying to bury your mother and your father, what did you think when you lost another? Sweetness Follows by R.E.M., compliments of [personal profile] graculus
9) Well, it's a marvelous night for a moondance. [personal profile] tejas swoops in to call this one Moondance by Van Morrison.
10) People I know, places I go, make me feel tongue-tied.
11) This bed is on fire with passionate love. [personal profile] graculus also guessed Laid by James.
12) One pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small. White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane, guessed by [personal profile] tejas.
13) Hearts cannot be broken, they're small, squishy things.
14) I would like just one glass of water.
15) Saw it written and I saw it say.  This is Pink Moon by Nick Drake. [personal profile] el1ie got this one!
16) He led you to this hiding place.
17) In the middle of the summer, I'm not sleeping.
18) Trouble been doggin' my soul since the day I was born. [personal profile] el1ie got Ray LaMontagne, and I know she knows it's Trouble.
19) Far away, this ship is taking me far away. [personal profile] el1ie got the artist - Muse. [personal profile] graculus got the song - Starlight.
20) Jesus the Mexican boy, born in a truck on the fourth of July.


Some of these should be easy, but some I will eat my hat if anyone gets. :)
superbadgirl: (Default)
I am bored. My boss has departed for the day. I play with this meme that's all over the place.


1. My username is ______ because ______.

I'm [livejournal.com profile] superbadgirl because I'm super and bad. Like, duh. Actually, I've been superbadgirl or sbg for ages now. Originally, I picked it as a handle because a song entitled, wait for it, Superbad Girl was playing as I had to come up with it. But I am super. And bad. In my head.

2. My name is _____ because ______.

My name is Cute and Unassuming because I am both of those things. ;) Or maybe because I put that once and have never changed it.

3. My journal is titled ____ because ____.

My journal is titled Even an End Has a Start because I like that song, and it's true. You came on your own, that's how you'll leave.

4. My friends page is called ____ because ____.

My friends page is called So It Goes because at one time my journal was called Everything Was Beautiful, and Nothing Hurt. Both are quotes from Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-5, a book I enjoy every time I read it.

5. My default userpic is ____ because ____.

My default userpic is one I took from under Aurora Bridge here in Seattle and I think it's a pretty shot. I really lucked out being there at the exact right moment. Plus, I like to have a basic pic as my default, so when I'm too lazy to pick another one out it doesn't look funky in context with what I'm posting/commenting about.


I'll stop spamming now. In fact, I might just go home now.
superbadgirl: (dino music)
Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] moonshayde.

I don't expect anyone to get most of these. To me, this kind of meme is like watching Alex Trebek reading lyrics or movie quotes - frustrating and somewhat annoying. ;)

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song. (Skip the instrumentals, the remixes and the mashups)
Step 3: Let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.


1. "A vial of hope and a vial of pain, in the light they both looked the same."
2. "Mother told me, yes, she told me I'd meet girls like you."
3. "Your knives were sharp, when you put them in my heart. Though the truth, you'd say, is I like them there that way."
4. "Born to multiply, born to gaze into night skies, when all you want’s one more Saturday."
5. "Fear and panic in the air. I want to be free from desolation and despair." Map of the Problematique, Muse guessed by [livejournal.com profile] moonshayde
6. "I will walk down to the ocean after waking from the nightmare, no moon, no pale reflection."
7. "I'll go away, till there's no one around, then leave your house when the sun goes down."
8. "How's hope feeling today? Tired and sick of this place."
9. "Home in the valley, home in the city, home isn't pretty, ain't no home for me." Burnin' For You, BOC guessed by [livejournal.com profile] strangevisitor7
10. "Why's it so strange when they say the world's movin' upwards?"
11. "When we arrive, sons and daughters, we'll make our homes on the water."
12. "Heartbreaker, soul shaker, I've been told about you." Hair of the Dog, Nazareth guessed by [livejournal.com profile] strangevisitor7
13. "...and if the snow buries my, my neighbourhood."
14. "I wish that we could talk about it, but there, that's the problem."
15. "Her name is Yoshimi, she's a blackbelt in karate." Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Flaming Lips guessed by [livejournal.com profile] darksylvia
16. "If I told you things I did before, told you who I used to be, would you go along with someone like me?"
17. "It's an elusive thing, this love of which we sing. What are we doing, what are we doing?"
18. "Yours is the only version of my desertion that I could ever subscribe to."
19. "Ooh, baby, don't you know I suffer, ooh, baby, can you hear me moan?" Supermassive Black Hole, Muse guessed by [livejournal.com profile] strangevisitor7
20. "It's easy to fall in love, when you fall in love you know you're done."

Okay, so some of these are actually kind of giveaways.
superbadgirl: (nick pretty)
I should be doing other things, which explains why I did this meme instead.

TV meme )
superbadgirl: (Default)
RULES:
1. Put your iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc. on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS.

(I did a rare meme because some of the answers on this one amused me.)

List of questions, musically answered )

Oh, and if anyone snags this from me, I added the artist. It's not part of the meme, but it'd be easier for people to look up a song if they should so choose. ;)
superbadgirl: (Default)
I can't remember on which flister's LJ I first saw this on.

Howl?


Your Score: The Wolf


Here's your results! Your spirit animal has a Nobility ranking of 12 out of 18.



Your spirit animal is the wolf. It is a ferocious companion, and a loyal friend. It is both a respectable and noble creature; to have this spirit animal says good things about you, and that you are starting to figure things out. Wolves are pretty rare spirit animals.

***Wondering how this animal was chosen for you? These questions were carefully thought out to see how important you hold certain virtues such as: humanism, self-knowledge, rationalism, the love of freedom and other somewhat Hellenic ideals. Some of the questions were very subtle. Your score was then matched with an animal of corresponding nobility. However, you shouldn't think this was a right/wrong sort of test, but more of an idealistic values test. It's ok to not hold these values, you'll just get an animal spirit of lower stature if you do!***

Shamelessly yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] seanchaidh

Comment here and ask me ANYTHING about any fandom I'm involved in/have been involved in, or fandom in general. Controversial or innocent, silly or serious, ask and you'll get my honest opinion on the subject [to the best of my knowledge/ability]. (Though I wasn't aware opinion required knowledge or ability...)

or

Give me two characters from different fandoms you know I’m familiar with, and I’ll give you a dialogue happening between the two of them. Without justifying how the crossover would work, how their worlds clashed, or how they could even meet each other. Just a silly crossover conversation with no backstory, for fun.



Also, House of Cards is my current fav on Radiohead's In Rainbows. Now, I know Thom Yorke's voice isn't for everyone, but the riff on this song is addictive. I think I've played it about 10 times today.

I should be writing. Or maybe sleeping, since I woke up tired.

Kthanxbye.

ETA: the second part of the meme. Hello. Anyone, anyone? Bueller? *sigh* This is why I hardly ever do this kind of meme.

Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] betacandy!

Write a romantic memoir about some of your TV boyfriends or girlfriends over the years. Tell how you met each one, why you loved them, why you broke up, etc.

At the time, I thought he was the love of my life. Those blue eyes, that feathered, light brown hair. That uniform. It didn't matter to me that he was a total player and had a nasty gambling and cigar habit. It also didn't bother me that there was a significant age gap between us: I was 4 1/2 and he was...at least 20 years older. He was my perfect, dreamy man, that Starbuck, and SO adventurous. It seemed every week was more exciting than the last, and my adoration for him knew no bounds. All he had to do was smile and I was butter. Oddly enough, though, he pinged my instinct to want to protect. He got hurt, and I wanted to crawl up to him and hug him back to health.

But then one day, Starbuck just disappeared. Left for another part of the galaxy that I could not follow him to. I was crushed. Destroyed, even, and I couldn't understand how he could just go away like that.

I wallowed for several years, and then new love arose. He was tall, blue-eyed and had the most delicious dimples. Lee Stetson (aka Scarecrow) was also an adventurer, living a dangerous life filled with espionage and intrigue (in a very campy, early 80s kind of way). It was good for a while with Lee, and then he up and got married to Amanda and he quickly lost appeal. He apparently didn't love me the way I loved him. Well, that, and my mother inexplicably and suddenly forbade me to see him anymore.

So I turned around and had torrid love affairs with Thomas Magnum and a pair of brothers named Simon. I had to be quick with them, because again my mother stepped in between us and broke us apart. It seems she did not like my taste for the bad-but-so-heroic-and-good boys, and I quickly realized there was no way to date who I wanted to date with her looking over my shoulder. I tried to date several Pony Express riders, but that was short-lived and didn't work out as I'd hoped (one of them died tragically and the other cheated on me).

I bided my time for a bit...and it was well worth the wait for one Angus MacGyver. Horrible first name aside (to be fair, he didn't share that with me for the LONGEST time), he was a dream. Smart, inventive, and always getting into trouble, partly to show me how cleverly he could get out of it, I think. And he really was such the clever man. He taught me so many things, not the least of which was concern for the environment. I had a good run with Mac, I really did - and Mom approved, too. Our split was amicable, and I still think fondly of him.

There was a serious dry spell, during my "find myself" period. Then I discovered a Mac look-alike (more seasoned, and with much better hair) who had quick wit, cheeky humor and HOT dress blues. His name was Jack O'Neill and I doted on him...and, lucky me, he brought a friend named Daniel. Unlike Jack, Daniel was mostly serious, sometimes arrogant and astoundingly brilliant. His greatest quality, though, was his caring for others. Daniel and Jack always thought they were polar opposites, and while their approaches differed, they were ultimately very similar. I loved them both almost equally, and for different reasons. Don't judge me for dating them both at the same time - honestly, put their qualities together and you'd have a near-perfect man. After a number of good years, tragedy struck, though. Jack apparently had a lobotomy or something, because his wit turned soft and his humor stupid. He still looked hot in dress blues, but by then I'd realized that looks weren't everything. I had to let him go. I held onto Daniel for little bit longer. His life, however, as many heroes' lives are, was tragic. He up and died on me. Sort of. I count being on a different plane of existence as good as dead. When Daniel was kicked out of the Glow Club for being a bad-but-so-heroic-and-good guy, he was...not the man I knew. I held on in hope for several years, and then HE totally changed and cheated on me with a lying, thieving sexpot. So then he had to go.

Fortunately, I recovered quickly. You could say I was even rescued from my dating demons by the brothers Winchester (and their car). I'm still with them. I dated their father for a while, too, but he died saving one of them and that only made me love him more. Both Sam and Dean are a tad too young for me, but I don't care. I was once, after all, the young one in a relationship. Dean is tortured and angsty and quite possibly the prettiest male specimen I've dated (it's a toss-up between him and Daniel, to be honest). He's got a major martyr complex, and will do just about anything to help people and most especially his brother. The sad thing about Dean is that he thinks he's not special...all the while being so damned special it hurts. Sam is also tortured and angsty and is very endearing and sweet. If I'm honest, I'll say that Sam, physically, isn't really my type. There's just something about him - maybe it's his undetermined role in this coming apocalyptic demon war, or maybe it's that he's so good it makes me hurt for him that he thinks he's evil. I hope to hold onto these guys for a long time, even though they make me all hurty. It's a good pain that makes you beautiful.

As a side note, Starbuck eventually turned up again in there somewhere, but He was now a She and I'll admit I could not handle that.
