So I wanted to check out how to buy space for more user pics and I accidentally clicked the button where you can, you know, pay?

And now LJ is asking me for credit card info. And I tried to go back and remove the article, but it's apparently not possible?

Um, help? Should I just leave everything blank? Close the window? Ask the flist?

Huh. So I just read some stuff that made me wonder if incest itself is an active kink for some people? Like, you read it because it gets you hot?

I mean, there's stuff that I find smoking (say bondage) and stuff that leaves me cold, but the appeal of which I can understand on some level (uh, let's take crossdressing as an example). But incest-- I dunno.

Do people write/read incest because they like the chemistry between two characters and they just happen to be related, which too bad, but eh, gotta work with what you have? Plus, hey, potential for interesting conflicts? How do writers handle this thing in SPN fandom?

I'm curious!

Make it so!

Go look! If you need me, I'll be here giggling like an idiot. :D

Due South peeps, do any of you know where I should search for this clip thingy from Call of the Wild? *makes the hopeful eyes*

Watching Southbound made me realize that a) Ramona Milano is a total cutie and b) that I should watch more behind the scenes stuff because it is clearly awesome. ("See, I think he's kinda ugly. I think he's got hair that looks really surprised.")

*thinky face* I wonder if fandom actually exploded when Mountie on the Bounty first aired?

Question: When you compose a real life entry, what are your thoughts? Do you just write about what pops in your head? Do you try to be entertaining? If something happens, what makes that something especially lj worthy?

And why do you tell...well, random people on the internets about your life? Is it just a natural progression from common fannish squee to getting acquainted to wanting to share stuff about yourself? (I hear it's called...making friends? :D)
dar_jeeling: (misc Huh?)
Don't you think the subject line is cute and makes this post less annoying? No? Oh. I'll just...*makes vague hand gestures*...go stand in that corner then.

Can anyone recommend a free software for making caps? Usually, I use VirtualDub, but it's having problems with the xvid/DirectShow codecs.

(I'm still totally standing in that corner, just for your information.)

Oh, and how do you people make your e-mail addresses all in italics and with space to the left and right of the @ ? (I am so eloquent, yo.)
dar_jeeling: (misc Huh?)
So I was trying to make an icon when I discovered once again that I'm woefully ignorant. Which one's correct? Like omg! or Like, omg! (What? It's an important question!)

Help, oh knowledgable flist?
dar_jeeling: (Sh Someone kicked my puppy.)
Has anyone already read [livejournal.com profile] resonant8's Terms of Service? Is the noncon part, and I apologise for the vague wording, bad?

At the moment, I'm kind of hypersensitive to that sort of thing, which is why I've stayed away from say [livejournal.com profile] auburnnothenna's In the City of 7 Walls 'verse.

It's just-- it makes me grit my teeth and clench my fists and the helpless rage is choking me and I cannot stand to see the characters in these kinds of situation. (Why, damn it, why? I want to read those stories!)

Eta: Got the info I wanted, thank you very much!

Mommy?

Speed + Chain jumping off sprocket = Owie. Now that I've shared this pearl of wisdom with you, won't you enlighten me, oh flist?

Paul Gross Malaria? As I understand it, this term refers to the occasional, spontaneous outburst of sexual and/or fangirly feelings towards Paul Gross? So if I said this cap makes me want to lick him or if I told you that that one here makes me want to throw him down somewhere and do dirty things to him until that frown disappears or if I confessed that this inspires thoughts of the Take me! Take me now! variety, would that qualify as Paul Gross Malaria? Um. Not that I am saying it or anything. This is all purely hypothetical. *shifty eyes*

Anyway, on with the questions! What's with the zebra?

And which episode reveals Frasers sweet tooth? (Don't tell me it's fanon, please. I'd be sorely disappointed.)

Oh, and in what film do I get to see the famous \o/?
dar_jeeling: (misc Yes. I am feeling psychotic today.)
Last night's dream featured Geisha Bourne (Bourne? What? Like in "The Bourne Identity?"), clad in lavender silk, doing slow exercises with a shiny katana and sharing pearls of wisdom like this one: "It was a strange way to question oneself, when one was at oneself."

Ooookay, brain. What the hell? You're not supposed to dream in a) English and b) bad English. What does that even mean?

Anyway, it made me think about a few questions I've had for a while. I already pestered oh, everyone I know about them, so why should the flist be spared?

Because Photoshop is frustrating me.

The flat ones: Not fancy, but very versatile. Flour, eggs, milk. You can wrap them around everything, salad, tuna, chicken, cheese, apples, raisins, take your pick.

The fluffy ones: Same as above, but with whipped egg whites and maybe some vanilla sugar. Little clouds of yumminess.

The cake-y ones: Their texture's like cake, sort of crumbly? And you can't eat more than one because of their tummy-filling goodness? If you know what I'm talking about and you know the recipe, please, I'm begging you, share it with me. I will love you forever.

Last night, I got my RPS cherry popped by this story. As RPF is a topic that has much potential for controversy I'm sure people have already voiced their opinions, written smart meta and whatnot, but I don't know where to find that stuff, so.

My first brush with RPF happened in X-Files fandom and I stayed the hell away from it because all the stories I peeked at had the same pattern: Tea Leonie's a bitch, David Duchovny is frustrated, Gillian Anderson is depressed. Soap opera stuff happens. Sex happens. The end. The story I read yesterday wasn't like that.

On what do writers of RPF base their stories? What's considered canon? How exactly can you tell if it's bad characterization? There's behind the scenes footage, there are bloopers and interviews, but how much does that tell you? How do you prevent the actors' roles from bleeding into them? Do authors have to work harder to make it plausible? Or do they have more liberties?

Will [livejournal.com profile] dar_jeeling ever again use a sentence that doesn't end with a question mark?
dar_jeeling: (McK   Why does it always rain on me?)
Or just a handful of Paracetamol? If you have a sekrit and unbeatable recipe against the common cold, speak up, please. The last thing I need at the moment is a headache and a stuffed nose.

Unrelated to that, or maybe related in the way that the idea is the result of three hours of sleep is the result of my not being able to breathe, damn it, I came up with a cunning plan which is very cunning. I will invent a machine that will hit you over the head with a frying pan if you exceed the programed time limit by procrastinating like crazy. Don't you think it'll make me rich in no time? I'll give it a very dramatic name, like Damocles. Damocles or Bob. I haven't yet decided.

So, everyone and their goddamned dog seem to be on AIM. I wanted to give it a try today and it installed a shitload of other stuff I absolutely do not need, among them the AOL browser and let me tell you, I really thought I had left that particular hell behind me. What's wrong with...I dont know, ICQ?

Speaking of the unexplained mysteries of the universe, why do men who are going bald feel the need to cover it by slicking their remaining hair over it? Do they like the feel of hair glued to their skin? Did their brain cells stop working at the same time as their follicles? Are they labouring under the misapprehension that it looks natural? What?

Here's the thing: I really want to write. Reallyreally. I have an idea and I...I am flush with excitement. I see scenes and bits of dialogue in my mind. I type them out and--my brain dries up.

How do you dooo it, writer people? I admire you.

Yeah. That. I'm feeling pretentious today, okay? Deal with it.

Rec me some books, people! I'm currently browsing through Amazon and if you feel that there's something I should absolutely read, let me know, please. *makes the puppy dog eyes*

Also, if you know about French fanfiction, give me links right now because my skills in that language are rapidly deteriorating. It took me five minutes to remember the word for yesterday. Yesterday. Oh, the utter shame.

And finally, a question for the writers. Do you write a fic and send that first draft off to beta or do you type it out, let it sit on the hard drive for a while, second-guess yourself, change stuff and then send it off to beta?
dar_jeeling: (Grant Go away. I wanna curl up and die.)
So, there was this story featuring Grant Jansky and Brendan Dean and I didn't agree with the characterizations in it, but since I've read it, I've been wondering: How would you picture a sexual encounter with Grant Jansky? I'm guessing the whole childlike demeanour is a huge obstacle.

In other news, I just had the most delicious dinner ever. Mmmyeah. *loves on prawns*
dar_jeeling: (Tey)
The cat is chewing on the USB cable. Again. Is there any way I can prevent her from doing that or is wrapping the cable in tape my only option? (The cable's quite long, so that would suck.)

Tomorrow I'll be able to watch the season finale and oh, the conflicting feelings! On the one hand, I can't wait to see it. On the other, the season's oooover. And bound to end with a cliffhanger. It's hard being a fangirl.
