First, I want to pimp this: out of this world | an AU ficathon

[profile] century_fox is running it and there are already some super cool prompts, so if you are so inclined, go forth and leave moar! *coughs at urge to write the Jack/Renee one yet again*

In which I want a cupcake and try to find my brain )

Anyway it's kind of super fun, yet harder than it sounds.

Woah I just spaced out staring at my icon. I need more coffee!

F-list question for today: If you had to pick five songs, right now, and they were the only songs you could listen to for an indefinite period of time, what would those five songs be?

So yes, I'm aware that I didn't totally finish the last meme, but I've got some time at work today and I need the kind of mood inspiration that comes from either icons or music. SO. I think the first time I saw this it was from [personal profile] sardonicynic, but this particular version is credited to [personal profile] adrenalin211.

Pick one of my LJ icons.

I will write you at least one sentence of something vaguely resembling fiction based on said icon. If you pick something generic or scenic, you can specify what character(s) you want me to write, so long as you know I have SOME knowledge about that fandom.

Also, Songs From District 12 and Beyond was released today. I'm DLing now, but I already know that the songs by Arcade Fire, The Civil Wars, and The Low Anthem are fantastic. The Arcade Fire is destined to become one of those songs I put on repeat for a week. I hope the week is starting out well for everybody!

Squidge.

Wow, this NPR article about the publication of books that originated as Twatlight fanfic has me all ten thousand squiggles of wiggling in my chair.

Thoughts?

Also, iTunes genius mixes are super hit or miss, but wow when they *hit*, they can be phenomenal. Do you guys use this feature?

Holy &*^%

Another musicgasm post. I cannot get over the insane squeeful delight this song brings me. The Chieftains AND The Civil Wars? YES PLEASE. I can't believe I have to wait until February to purchase this. Until then I will stream, and holy hell, are The Civil Wars on my MUST GO TO CONCERT list or what?

Today I started The Dovekeepers, and so far I am simultaneously horrified and yet again entranced by Alice Hoffman. This book is also making me want to go and read all my Hoffman faves over and over and over, just to swim in her language.

And for today's bonus, [livejournal.com profile] adrenalin211 wrote Jack/Renee fic that makes me SO HAPPY. Living in the moment, that is me.

JFC, I cannot get over this song. It will be a miracle if I don't stay up all night playing it on repeat on my new iPod.

word count: 499

This is for you, [livejournal.com profile] ws_scribe, with Christmas love and wishes for deployment that's as good as it can be during the holidays. For the complete list of prompts, you can click here.

Title is from 'Go Places,' by The New Pornographers.

She’s still stuck in the middle. )

I have been mainlining Mary Chapin Carpenter's "Hot Buttered Rum" for a day now. If you are at all into music that sounds like poetry, I recommend it highly. *swoons*

And as always, entirely non fic-related comments/observations/randomness are welcome in this entry. Bring it on!
