Fanfiction Index

Why have a website when LJ does such a superb job of keeping track of everything with tags! But in case you ever want to see it all at once...

My fannish writings - neatly categorised and summarised )

Grah! Deadlines are of the suckage!

I'm going to be late for my femme_fic - it's in beta land but I KNOW it will need some revision as this is a new fandom writing wise and it needs some polishing.

AHAHA I wrote Twilight fic! And not entirely cracked out fic either.

I'm still wavering on what I'm going to use this journal for. My LJ is me writing silly cracked out musings and observations - which I do love doing. I am attracted to the absurd side of life and I'm not about to stop with the glee.

I need glee!

Mebbe my D-W will have some more serious thinky!type posts (though I don't think I could ever be entirely dry and academic) I know I don't want to crosspost, 'cos that just doubles the content without adding any value.

Speaking of which, I see on metafandom several posts about people talking about how they will unsubscribe people who do this. Ehhhh - I'm more likely to set up a series of reading filters - not because I'm all passive aggressive about the whole "friending" issue (there is STILL going to be wank over this, even with the attempt to separate it out into subscribe/access) but because I do that anyway on LJ.

I do read all the posts in my flist/circle - but I break people down into groups and read them at different times during the week. My fandom comms filter for instance is a bit neglected as I haven't had so much time recently to read any of the fic that's been produced.

I'll get to it eventually though.

One more Teal'c fic today as a reward for writing another 1000 words!

It keeps my reading levels sane.

My journal should probably read (v): awesomesaucery, but Rigel!speak trumps grammatical accuracy

*sadface* In which I learn that, yes, there is a character limit for post titles.

Alas, for the chronically-verbose-or-just-really-addicted-to-run-on-hyphenated-sentences-such-as-my-sparkling-but-not-in-the-vampire-sense-though-really-it-would-be-kind-of-excellent-to-have-the-skin-of-a-killer-to-~angst~-over-and-oooh-think-of-the-excellent-tacky-shiny-stuff-I-could-then-accessorise-with-but-I-digress-self.


I has a new phone *is terrified of it* I swear it is capable of beaming thoughts directly into people's brains and will possibly cause the uprise of the machines at some later date due to it being sentient and all (it anticipates my needs based on my usage *is freaked out a tad by this*)

However, I am a total luddite when it comes to phones. I have an irrational hatred and dislike for them that stems from being accosted by the bakelite monstrosity (that had a ring dial! Thats how old I am, or that might possibly be more of a reflection of my parentals resistance to change "Touch Pad! What is this magic??) that fell off the wall onto my pinkie toe as a seven year old (and clearly rather impressionable) child.

I have horrified the fraternal by using its whizz-bang features to *glee* play incessant games of Bubble (YEAH! High score of 732!)

And now, rather than quoting some bad!porn at you. I shall offer up a scene that always makes me grin from one of my all time faves.

Heee! )

*Fires up coconut modem*

Internets: *loads*
Rigel: *stares at progress bar* hurryuphurryuphurryup
Internets: ...
Rigel: You can do eeet!
Internets: *I-think-I-can-I-think-I-can-I-think-I-can-no-wait!*


I did the Anakin-power-scream-of-doom-with-extra-dramasauce

Le sigh - our internets is capped for the next six days, so I is surfing with no images. Which is rather interesting in that pictures get replaced with their descriptive alt tags. *grins at what you name some of your icons*

I have also set up my Dreamwidth account. I'm Rigel over there and I managed to port everything over - even my layout *bwee* But fear not, I shall be cross posting your daily dose of porn quality peen scenes.

Speaking of peen, (yeah! smooth segue there) My reading of Elizabeth Hoyt has me musing over the peen POV in her lurve scenes. So much of the sexing is about the peen, what the peen is feeling and doing and waaaay too much peen description.

Just as a completely non-biased and totes scientific test, I selected 25 other books from my shelf-of-doom from different authors to compare the POV in the sex scenes. The vast majority (14) are from the female POV (in that the sex descriptions are about what she is feeling and doing) A further 6 have mixed POV (no bias one way or the other), 2 have no sex (aka fade to black) and 3 are peen-centric.

Which has me thinking about fic. If I think about the last 25 or so explicit het fics that I read, there were way more peen-centric fics than there were va-j-j-tastic (okay that descriptor clearly fails :P Hoo-ha-lic?...) Does fandom seem to worship more at the altar-of-peen to you as well? I find it interesting that two female dominated writing spheres have such opposing sex POV writing.

and now back to our hero polishing his fleshy sword... NSFW!! )

Rigel Reads Romance

I'm more than a little bit in love with Eth right now, as she sent me THE BEST PRESENT EVAR! Consisting of a box full of Mills & Boons, and they are utterly delicious - for how can you not be intrigued by a title like this:

The Millionaire's Seductive Revenge

(Although it has to be said that 'The Sheik's Contract Bride' promises lulz, and possibly slave/master type scenarios...)

Stuff and er... more stuff

Lawd! I hates clothes shopping with a passion!

Hehe - all I wanted was 2 pairs of plain pants (one black and one brown) and 2 work shirts and it took nearly 3 hours! ack! All of the pants were weird and had things attached to them in odd places and buttons that were hideous and were made from icky fabric. Bleh! And don't get me started on the fugleh that is this season's fashion...

But in ze end I found some nice things and all was well. And I shelled out a rather jaw-dropping sum of munneh for a minimizer bra (As I don't want to be too boob-a-licious at my new place of employment)

[ profile] gateverse_remix is live! And I'm working my way through the list. Some of the Atlantis ones are a bit confuzzling to me though, cos I'm assuming that they reference events in season 4 (for which I'm relatively unspoiled) But I'm determined to read them all this year ('twas one of my resolutions for this year after all, to read all the fics for every ficathon I participate in)

I posted mine just in time last night, but I wasn't quite happy with it (it's a multimedia fic, that's done up to look like a magazine article) I had a 3am epiphany, where I suddenly realised that I'd forgotten to justify the text properly (the horror!) So I redid them all this morning and also re-coded the web layouts :D *is a bit of a sad geek*

[ profile] apocalypse_kree is taking prompts again! Yay! Despite my soul-bit still languishing with [ profile] surreallis (it's in good company *koff*) I'm looking forward to the awesomeness of apocafic.

Also, NCIS is on tonight and I am gleeful - despite the repeats, there's a few episodes that I haven't managed to catch before. My love for Abby and Gibbs continues unabated :D

Needs moar Daniel...

*happy joy dance*

I have finally nailed down my [ profile] gateverse_remix fic, and am at the stage of beating it into submission with my plot-stick-of-doom.

*is smug with self*

I can only say, that at times, the 3am strike of inspiration can actually work. My muse decided to get off its lazy butt and tell me exactly how to approach it.

Also, I am in need of some Daniel Picspam for nefarious purposes (possibly involving handcuffs and light spanking.)

Point me in the direction of what is in your opinion, his finest smoking hot appearance onscreen.

And can anyone tell me where the promotional pictures (preferable hi-res) from seasons seven and eight are kept?

*smishy dance of joy*


My profile is looking oh so pretteh with all the be-yew-ti-ful gifts on it!

I have:

An evil duck to help me rule the world (so handy for the impending apocalypse-of-doom as it floats and breathes fire) from [ profile] stargazercmc!

A noisemaker from [ profile] surreallis with which to keep the neighbours entertained homicidal for hours on end!

A pretty princess tiara to swan about imperiously in (as I am clearly above you riff raff plebes... :P) from [ profile] annerbhp

A slice of tasty pumpkin pie to lure Jack to my side and enslave through baked goods from [ profile] beanpot who clearly has her man-luring tricks in order

and a fab candy necklace that doubles as an assassins tasty but deadly weapon (death shall be sweet and swift!) from a lovely anon

[ profile] sg_betty made me a lufferly banner with cake and team!

[ profile] beanpot wrote crack!fic: "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Bat" proving she has a bottle of crazysauce in her fridge :D

The loot from the relatives was handsome as well - consisting of cash (always welcome) book vouchers (even more welcome) and a trip to the romance book store (awesome!) Alas the new Eloisa James is released in another 12 days (I shall return)

The [ profile] flippyfrog and [ profile] emerald85 sent me the most loltastic gift EVAR all the way from sunny Greece via England. A set of playing cards that feature Ancient Greek Sex Pottery artwork! Which I have to scan and show you, in the hope that I can totally convince you all that these should be prompts for a ficathon...



And a HUGE HAPPY BIRTHDAY to [ profile] holdouttrout as well!

Book Meme

Okay, in my defense - I'll read anything in print and I tend to go through phases where I say to myself "I really should read some more of those Classic English/American/Russian/French Literature books."

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you started but did not finish.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them

But [ profile] crazedturkey arrives tomorrow and we have a whole week of awesomeness! We shall gallivant all over my fine city and the southwest corner of my state (alas, we shall not see any crocodiles - but there will be wine and cheese!)
