Nabbed from [personal profile] lost_spook:

Ask me a question about one of my fics. (here and here) It can be absolutely anything in any project and I will answer it the best I can -- even on current progress/plans.

If you'd prefer, you can also ask about my writing for a particular fandom, my writing as a whole, etc.


Hey, it might be fun.

Haven't done one of these in a while, so snaffled from [personal profile] john_amend_all:

If you happen to be working on some creative writing project, fanfiction or NaNaWriMo or what have you, post exactly one sentence from each of your i current works in progress in your journal.

No titles, no pack drill:

Sentences )

I think that will do for now...

So, er, like, y'know, I went and did a meme, like.

Yoinked from [personal profile] eve11 here.

The internet is an amazing place that has allowed us to communicate and share with each other, but there is just something about listening to someone else's voice and getting to know them through the things that make them unique. Cadence, accent, the amount of times someone says "UM" -- all of those things are a delightful way to appreciate the friends you already have and the friends you are hoping to make.

The instructions are super easy: record yourself answering the questions below the jump and then post it in the comments!


The Meme! )

And as I say, I quite enjoyed doing that. I hope you enjoyed it too. It was quite recreational. If any of you have any suggestions about other things I could ramble about and post here, then please let me know. :)


EDIT: I've had a bit of feedback from a couple of listeners who have said that the sound on the linked recordings is very low for them, so be warned you may need to crank your volume up a bit. :)

There are memes, and then there are memes. And then again there are memes like this one, which for a while back in 2010 seriously - no kidding - took over my life and that of quite a lot of other people of my acquaintance. And now, like Dracula rising from the grave...it has risen from the grave! Oh, meme, how I've missed you...

Yoinked from [personal profile] lost_spook:

1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them.
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that you want.
4. Post to your own journal.


Or you could even post to the [community profile] isurrendered communities on both Livejournal
and Dreamwidth...!

I warn you, though - start down this dark path and you may never reach the end of it...


jjpor: (Master 2)
It seemed like a good idea at the time, having seen [personal profile] lost_spook and others on my flist with them, so...

My Trope_Bingo Card )

In fact, it still seems like a good idea - I'm already forming plans and seeing which of my existing plans fit in with items on the table (more than I expected!). And October 31 seems like a long way away (although I suspect it won't when it's, say, October 20 and I still haven't done anything!). Well, we will see how this plays out...

If you're interested too, trope_bingo signups are HERE.

A Meme!

As part of my ongoing "I aten't dead!" strategy, I nicked the following from [livejournal.com profile] persiflage_1

I'm running a test to see who's reading my posts. So, if you read this, leave me a one-word comment about your day that starts with the third letter of your LJ USERNAME. Only one word please. Then repost so I can leave a word for you. Don't just post a word and not copy - that's not as much fun!

I wonder if I'll get any replies from those Russian spambots who keep cropping up on my old posts? We shall see. ;D
jjpor: (Default)

Yes, you read right - I just checked and it would seem that I started this meme on July 22 2010. Which is...well,  a strange definition of 30 days anyway. So let's press on quickly:

Day 24/355: Whatever Tickles Your Fancy

In keeping with yesterday's theme of multi-Doctor fanvids, I was going to post a few more that have come to my attention. However, while searching around on YouTube for just one more to add to the ones I have bookmarked, I came across this. And for some reason, I laughed so much (in a good way!) that I felt I had to share. Despite seeming to dwell on their less successful operations, it is nevertheless a fitting tribute, I feel, to the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce and all of the brave men and women who served in it during the halcyon days of the 1970s (or was it really the 1980s?!). They made heroes in those days!

Also includes my favourite moment in The Daemons - not even the "five rounds rapid" bit - no, Sgt Benton's sheer innocent joy at getting to fire the bazooka. :D

The Rest of the Days... )

Yes, by absolutely no popular demand whatsoever, I try to complete the 30 Days of Who meme sometime within my own lifetime! And you know how it is - you wait for ages and two come along at once:

Day 22: A Who-Related Fan Site

As with Highlanders, so with Doctor Who message boards; there can be only one! My home from home on't'internet for about three years now, a nice little community of Who-minded folks who are in my experience always welcoming of newcomers and always in need of new blood (not in a bad sense...like that village in that episode of Torchwood or anything... O.o). I present:

Death by Aspirin !!!!

And... Day 23: A Who Related YouTube Video )

Well, if you've ever read any of my fanfic, as I think a lot of you on my flist probably have, you'll probably have some vague, unconfirmed inkling about what the answer to this one is going to be... ;)

Day Twenty-One: Your Doctor Who OTP

Or will you? I could suprise you totally and say Irongron/Bloodaxe, keeping up yesterday's Time Warrior theme. Or Glitz/Dibber! It certainly makes more sense to me than Glitz/Ace...

Read on and find out the shocking truth! And read my pompous, preachy musings too! :D )

So, I just thought I'd continue this one, despite it being about six months since Day 19. If I pick up my pace slightly, I might get it done by the time of the 50th anniversary.

Day Twenty: The Character Who Is Most Like You

Linx from the Time Warrior, of course! Well, no probably not really,  whatever wild claims I may have made in the past. And not the Master, either. Fortunately. ;D While being a droll supervillain may have its appeal, it has its cons too and I don't think anyone would really want to be like the Master, or indeed that there are many like him about and at liberty. This may require some thought...

Rambly musings follow... )

Although the similarities might be there, if I'm honest. Apart from the paramilitary group thing - that sounds like hard work... XD
