xlivvielockex: (Buffy: Beneath You Spuffy)
While I have been reading LJ, I haven't been participating much in terms of commenting because of graduate school slash real life. But it seems to me, in my very narrow flist reading, that there has been some debate the past few weeks over Spuffy.

As in do people who ship Spuffy side with Spike more or Buffy more? Do they hate Buffy? Do they hate Spike? Do they woobify Spike too much? I could go on and on. I love seeing these kind of debates, that we are still talking in this fandom about these things.

It really got me to thinking about Spuffy lately as I drive the 90 minutes to and 90 minutes back from campus. This is the poll I came up with, the one that I think really needs to be asked of the Spuffy fandom (and of those who think about Spuffy as a ship, positive or negative)

Please answer honestly )

Feel free to expand on your answers in comments.

In setting up a new relationship and ending an old one, where is the line between realization and ship/char bashing?

What I mean is let’s say I’m writing a fic where C2 and C3 get together but it is set in a season where C1 and C2 are together. If C2 realizes the relationship is not working out, is trying to justify the breakup to themselves, where is the line where it is serving the story vs. bashing? Is there a line? (And feel free to link this so I get a variety of replies, not just from friends, though you all are A-MAH-ZING)

Also, anyone have some time to beta one maybe two 5 things fics for me this weekend, preferably someone who has a good Spike voice cause my Spike voice is lousy?

We know Angel likes hockey...

But what team do you think he would root for?

Thinking in a writers' room way, would they have made him a Flyers fan since David Boreanaz is a huge Flyers nut or you think they would have made him go for The Kings (or maybe The Ducks) since that would be the closest team?

What about being a basketball fan? Those games are played indoors and at night. I think he would probably be a Lakers fan, proximity and all. Or again, use DB and have Angel a fan of the 76ers (Oh poor Angelbear, he has suffered enough. At least it's not the Nets right?)

He is just such an alpha male type that I think, in my personal head canon, that he watches Sportscenter every night. He probably never goes to games because of all the people but he totally ordered a sports package from his cable provider.

Well, working my little tail off as the semester draws to a close. Working on a paper right now but luckily it's a topic I enjoy so it's going quickly.

That isn't what this post is about though.

This weekend, husband and I watched Scott Pilgram vs The World. Neither of us enjoyed it. We kept looking at each other going "we are supposed to root for this douchebag?"

What I don't get is why is it so popular? Can someone explain it to me? I mean, none of the characters are particularly well crafted, the jokes are rather lame, Michael Cera is doing the same character he has done since his Arrested Development days. I just don't get why it is so popular. I was expecting so much more.

Anyone out there like it? Can you help me out here? I just know it is so popular and it's so rare that my husband and I, neither of us can see why it is so "cool". Maybe we are just getting to old?

I'm taking a break from my political comm paper cause I have a question for the flist, well two actually. First.

Just kind of a strange question but has anyone been to Mustang Island, Port Aransas, Texas? I was looking for a new vacation spot, someplace I hadn't been and came across this little blurb on AOLTravel.

"This 18-mile-long barrier island, connected by a causeway and 24-hour ferry to Corpus Christi, offers wildlife and wild life at party-hearty Port Aransas. Trolleys ply the historic honkytonk town, filled with down-home pubs and upscale galleries. Wide bay- and Gulf-side beaches, lined with dunes, seafood shanties and marinas, hikers, seashell collectors, and sandcastle architects (100,000 spectators ogle hundreds of entries at SandFest, the nation's largest sand-sculpting competition, every April). Aquatic activities abound: surfing waves off the jetty, kite-boarding off protected sandbars, casting for trophy tuna and tarpon. Tournaments lure international competitors, who spin tales of the ones that got away in fun funky bars. More than 500 bird species vacation here, dolphin frolic in the channel, and coyote roam Mustang Island State Park.

Fun Fact: Mark "Sand Man" Landrum acts as Port A's official "Sandcastle Dream Builder," offering lessons in engineering elaborate moats and machicolated battlements."

Has anyone been? Good place? Bad place? Is it affordable to stay there? I'd be driving from Arizona so I would have a car.

Also, was the ONLY person on the net who LOVED the True Blood finale? I feel like I'm all alone in my love of it. LOL

Quick pimp too:

This isn't a report as much as a plea for help to make a report. I don't know if this is a clear cut plagarism case but [livejournal.com profile] orbofthesulah looks like she has been 'inspired' by some writers, even going so far as to take lines and ideas from their fics:

Her version: http://orbofthesulah.livejournal.com/25188.html
Original by [livejournal.com profile] queen_mecha: http://community.livejournal.com/phaedras_love/12508.html

Screencaps in case she deletes the story: One, Two, Three,
Original screencaps: One, Two, Three Four, Five, Six Seven, Eight

I sent a PM to [livejournal.com profile] queen_mecha but it doesn't look like they have been on LJ since 2007. I don't think they are the same author because of the different writing styles but I contacted [livejournal.com profile] queen_mecha any way to be sure. No response yet. [livejournal.com profile] queen_mecha responded and she isn't [livejournal.com profile] orbofthesulah.

I think she might have also plagarized [livejournal.com profile] x_spikeaholic_x due to comments that were deleted on this entry: http://orbofthesulah.livejournal.com/17460.html (She credits Spikeaholic later)

[livejournal.com profile] orbofthesulah's grammar/spelling ranges so wildly on her fanfics, it looks like others might be plagarized but I'm not sure how to go about figuring out if more of them are. Is there anyone out there in the Spike/Faith, Angel/Faith, Angel/Spike/Faith circles that could help me in identifying more of them?

(I cross-posted this to [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagiarism but I thought maybe my flist could help in the meantime so I can make a full report at SP)
xlivvielockex: (PR: Gunn Confused)
Crap.

Click for me ranting about fanfic writing )

So okay writers of my flist, what would you do? Just go with the creative flow or actually stick to my commitments and finish my stuff?

Brain fart

I have to icon happy or cheery moments from BTVS for an icontest and I'm having like this epic brain fart. (Or like the ones I can think of, I've iconned like 100x times)

Help, flist? Happy or cheery moments from BTVS? Episode, characters, even the cap would be awesome.

I will love you forever. *smooches*

[livejournal.com profile] damnskippytoo, [livejournal.com profile] nikkiwawa79, [livejournal.com profile] samsom, [livejournal.com profile] foreverxkisses your DVDs have been mailed so be on the lookout for them. Happy Holidays! Any problems, just let me know. :)

I'm going out of town on business starting tomorrow night until Tuesday morning. I will have the laptop but sadly, no photoshop. I'm going to try to get as many holiday requests done today in between laundry and packing but this is a head's up that some stuff might be late. I apologize in advance but this opportunity came up and I had to take it. I've coded and uploaded the stuff I already did so I should be able to post on the 13th and I will post two gifts since the 14th will totes be a busy day for me.

Is anyone interested in helping me mod a Whedoncomm? It will start after Christmas, with minimal work. I don't want to say too much here but [livejournal.com profile] nikkiwawa79 and [livejournal.com profile] dontgetanyolder are already going to help me. You need to be over 18 and leave me a comment with your email or PM me and I will give you the deets to see if you are still interested.

And in the spirit of asking for help, can anyone beta some LOTS femslash for me? I haven't decided the rating just yet but I think maybe not too prony. And maybe beta a really quick Five Things fic for Angelverse?

Speaking of LOTS (who's fandom I'm coming to love more and move every single day without fail), they are doing a Twelve Days of Seeker Kink at [livejournal.com profile] sword_of_lies. The banner alone should be enough to get you to sign up!

I leave you with a quote from my soulsister, my loverbaby, my forever [livejournal.com profile] diseased_inside: "I would do a lot of things with my vag, use it for evil, use it for money, use it for world domination but I would not use my fucking pussy to paint with." I love that fierce bitch.
xlivvielockex: (Buffy: Spike Def)
First off, how on earth did I get shaving cream in my EAR this morning? My legs, nowhere near my ear. I musta still been half asleep in the shower and doing some creative acrobatics.

Second, does anyone know of a cap where Spike is laughing or happy smiling? Not his usual cheekbone flaring smirk that he does but a real laugh? Nikki and I went nuts yesterday trying to think of one.

Third, I'm closing the Holiday Requests post Monday (Dec 7) so I can have time to do everything. I've gotten two presents done, halfway through a third, and they are taking me about a full day (or longer) each. The narrow majority wanted me to start posting on the 13th so that is what I will do. Also, the gifts will be coming in the order I finished them. Some things I started first because they were easier, not because I was playing favorites. Swears!

Lastly, this meme from [livejournal.com profile] sunny_serenity looked so much fun.

Using only four words, tell me what you would say to me if we woke up in a jail together.

[livejournal.com profile] diseased_inside I would say to you "What does mine say?" LOL

ETA: The World Cup draw this morning was...interesting. It looks like, as usual, some groups have strong teams with one kind weak team and some groups are just strong. Should be exciting though, as always. I can't wait!

Ugh!

I so can't make a decision on my own so here goes.

Remember that Holiday Requests Post that I made, that you still have time to request something on if you haven't already, well I started to make gifts for it. I signed up for a lot this year so I need to get a jump on it. Of course, since I can't decide when to start posting, I made a poll. (Seriously, I FAIL at decision making)

[Poll #1493650]
xlivvielockex: (True Love)
ONE FOR THE LADIES
a friending meme for femslash.


And totally random but does anyone have a good tut for making .gifs? I have some caps that NEED to be made into a hot animated .gif but i_t was not helpful. I have PS 6.0 and IR. Thanks!

Okay list, I've got a little bit of a strange question for you. I know a lot of people (myself included) will watch a show because their favorite actor/actress is in it. That's how I got hooked on Greek because of Charisma's guest starring role.

My question is...does anyone else watch a show simply for the producer/writer/director/creator instead of the actors?

Talkity talk )
xlivvielockex: (Cordy: Told You So)
I do a couple of icontests for the Jossverse where you can pick specific characters/couples/groups, etc to icon. So I basically want to find out what people want. Feel free to pimp this so I get a better idea of who I should make icons of.

It gets long )
xlivvielockex: (C/A Together)
Getting ready for the ficathon, doing an Angel rewatch and I just realized, that we (the audience) never get told where Angel is staying after the office blows up. There are only two episodes before the gang moves into the Hyperion but that leaves the whole summer of Angel living where exactly? Assuming from the big white board they just fought the good fight all summer after Cordelia and Wes recovered, and fought it stationed out of Cordy's apartment.

But where did Angel stay in all of it? His home was sort of burnt to a crisp.

Do most people assume he just stayed with Cordy because Angel had a tendency to sleep where he worked (the office, the Hyperion, Wolfram and Hart)? Or do people assume he stayed with Wes (men staying with men as not to upset the womanfolk)? Or maybe that he got an apartment or hotel or temporary residence?
