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.

I think my graduate school professors know that this is television premiere week because I have TEN papers due this week. I wrote four over the weekend so just six to go. So that means I don't get to watch any new premieres until this weekend (which is my anniversary so yeah, no tv then!). Plus I have SPN S5 just looking at me going KELLY! WAAAATCH ME!

Let's not even talk about how behind I am with my LJ communities. Time for another modsearch post methinks. Maybe if I say I just need a banner maker and that you can still win banners, that might help get someone to sign up. I don't know.


In happier news, lots of awesome fandom stuff on my LJ that I haven't gotten around to comment all on.

- Cordelia/Angel fanmix by [livejournal.com profile] angryscientist All Depeche Mode, which, you know how much I love DM if you've been here for a bit.

- Angel sketch by [livejournal.com profile] angryscientist I love it when people *draw* in this fandom. It makes me so unbelievably happy!

- ATS Prompt-a-Thon hosted by [livejournal.com profile] eleusis_walks And I actually wrote a Drusilla and Cordelia thing for it!

- Doomed Ship Comment Fic hosted by [livejournal.com profile] anythingbutgrey I wrote for this too. Angelus/Drusilla and big time RAPE WARNING on that one.

Also, just cause I know a few people like knowing about the strange relationship I have with my husband. For our anniversary (the 27th), he bought me an electric smoker and a terabite hard drive. I'm allergic to mesquite and most BBQ around here is mesquite. Plus I don't eat HFCS and most BBQ sauces have it. I have been bitching about the lack of BBQ for years so he finally bought me a smoker to shut me up. LOL I already tested it out last week. DE.LI.CIOUS. Seriously, everyone should come over. I did ribs, I'm doing a brisket next. And the hard drive? For all my music and tv shows. He knows me way too well. (I got him Leverage and Burn Notice S2. He got S1 for his birthday.)

Cut to spare your list, lots of Buffy peeps listed )

From today's [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets. Thank you, OP. You made my week. I feel all warm and fuzzy now. (And I totally agree about the opinions of the peeps I know. You are all AWEEESOME!)

(Is there anyone else doing it that I left off?)

I know I was going to pimp someone/something else but I totally forgot now. :( I'm still so tired from my weekend and the comment!fail that happened while I was working (some of you know what I'm talking about). If you don't want people to comment with opposing viewpoints, then f-lock it or ask fandom newsletters not to link to it you know?
xlivvielockex: (Buffy: Clem Mom Wow)
[livejournal.com profile] anythingbutgrey posted this fabulous essay about Angel's character growth and was wondering about cross-posting. I was just going to send her a list of the places I pimp but then I thought, my flist could probably benefit and add to the list. So I'm posting it here.

It is broken up into categories (icons, fic, communities, other) and then I have a short one or two words about what you can pimp there (ATS, BTVS, char-specific, etc). I hope it's helpful to everyone.

The best promotion is self-promotion )

I NEED SOME MAJOR CHEERING UP, PEEPS! (While yes, the Prop 8 overturning totally made me cry happy tears, it's not outweighing the shitstorm of my real life right now) And well, I was doing this on Tumblr last night and it was so fun, I wanted to bring it over here, only a little differently.

You comment and give me three people you want me to pick to Fuck, Marry, or Kill. Then I reply with my answers and give YOU three people to F, M, K. You comment back to me and if you want another set of three, then give me three more. Give three to get three, see how it goes.

Here are some examples from Tumblr last night:

Cause everyone wants to know about FMK! )

And here are a list of the fandoms I know. Movies and celebs too, toss those in if you want. If I haven't seen the movie, I will go by the pretty.

Fandoms for FMK )

Feel free to pass this around, link it, whatever. Whoever comments, if I'm not familiar with them, I will just check their profile to give them a FMK. :) Remember, give three to get three!

Who wants some awesome this morning?

[livejournal.com profile] the_jackalope linked this comic on her LJ and anyone who is in the Whedonverse fandom should check it out. I think it sums up everyone's feelings, especially now with S8.

And here is a rare treat, I rarely see any kind of meta on Cordelia. Sure, we have the Assassination of Cordelia Chase, which is made of win but most people are writing about well, Buffy characters. Poor Angel characters, the black sheep. But [livejournal.com profile] eleusis_walks wrote some meaty delicious Cordy meta. I've re-read it several times and really is just an amazing piece, definitely one of those pieces that I think could make anyone see Cordelia in a new light. :)

So you might remember this past weekend I contacted [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagiarism about some fics that seemed oddly familiar. (Original post here).

Well, after doing some digging, [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagiarism has determined that [livejournal.com profile] orbofthesulah is a plagiarist. Now, some of you are new but in the past, I was plagiarized (I mean, I have a tag for it!). It's not fun and it's something I can't stand. That is why I do firmly believe in public shaming these people. Sometimes, it helps, they stop their stealing ways, delete their LJs, etc. Sometimes it doesn't. But to me, it's something important to note.

Here is the report on [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagiarism. I find her responses very telling. She clearly doesn't think that stealing is wrong (And one look at her Tumblr, that much is clear. A ton of fics posted without ANY credit or link backs)

So yes, [livejournal.com profile] orbofthesulah aka thegirlinquestion on Tumblr is a plagiarist. And honestly, I never would have found out if she didn't post part of a plagiarised fic on Tumblr and someone reblogged it.

If she is on your LJ or Tumblr, I would suggest deleting her right away as she stole videos and graphics as well. (Stop Plagiarism doesn't cover those, sadly). She doesn't look like she is above from stealing from everyplace she can. I've still got some other people helping me, as it seems most of her fics are stolen from other places. I'm hoping we can fatten up the case.

This is for [livejournal.com profile] anythingbutgrey and [livejournal.com profile] nikkiwawa79 (And anyone else that wants to snag it)

Just the meme, not filled out.

30 Days of Angel meme )

Having all these foster kittens, I have no time anymore. The newest babies, one of them has that same eye virus that took Gigi's eye so we have to be constantly vigilant in cleaning/medicating so he doesn't lose it. Not to mention the fact that the new babies eat..a lot...and often. LOL So sorry for not being around. I've been neglecting a lot of fandom responsibilities but saving animals, that is my number one priority.
xlivvielockex: (ATS: Wes RAWR!)
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)

Had a family emergency on Friday and things are just now getting back to normal. Know I owe some people icons, banners are behind at my comms, etc. When it rains, it pours huh?

I've gone and got one of those tumblr things. Actually, had one for a month (?) but I finally made a personal one. It's mostly fandom and stuff that I see and go SHINY!

My tumblr is http://xlivvielockex.tumblr.com

and I run:


The ones I like that are fandom related:


Non-fandom ones:


[livejournal.com profile] coalitiongirl has a BIG LIST OF TUMBLR BUFFYVERSE COMMUNITITES if you need more stuff to follow. And if you want a read that will make your heart scrunch up and your eyes tear, read this ship manifesto about a B/Aer turned C/Aer. It was made of win. (She also wrote this awesome fic)

So flist, if I'm not following you, what is your tumblr? What tumblrs do you love?
xlivvielockex: (Cordy: SQUEE)

Seriously! Go read it! The article came out great. Like so awesome. I could not be more happy about it. And hey, you might learn a little bit about me you didn't know, right? :)

(And feel free to link it if you liked it)

to exactly three people, but...........

I declare this day I Love [livejournal.com profile] damnskippytoo Day.


However, anyone's who's been touched by her fic, or laughed out loud watching "Hey, Dumbass", or even just went "that's so cool" when gazing at one of her icons, will know that she deserves an entire day just for herself. :)

So I realize that I'm totally insane in undertaking this. Like I don't already have enough on my plate, right? But when have you guys ever known me not to be spinning plates like a vaudeville act? I just hope they don't come crashing down.

Even if you aren't a fan of C/A, if you want, come support my fandom project. I'm posting my observations every day, blogging about this ala Julie & Julia. It's usually only one post a day, promise. :)
