So, top of the list of Things I Probably Shouldn't Be Doing Because I Have Other Stuff To Be Doing is a whole list of Bangs I've signed myself up for. XD

give in and give out )

Dear beautiful Author,

So this is my very first Yuletide! I somehow have been very active in fanfic for something like 10 years and yet managed to never hear about Yuletide until just this past summer. I’m excited to join in finally (and admittedly totally nervous because I’m worried about messing something up XD).

These are just ideas and guidelines and if the muse takes you somewhere else, go for it! I apologize in advance if this is a lot – optional details are optional – so don’t let this cramp your style and please don’t feel pressured in any way!! You are magnificent human for doing this, in any capacity. :D


oh don't you dare look back just keep your eyes on me )

Fic Round Up!

red_b_rackham: (dr. horrible)
So, as if you haven't noticed, I am horrible at keeping my LJ up to date? XD But it's way past time for another fic round up - looks like the last one was more than a year ago. Ooops.

fight the good fight )
I've been meaning to do this post forever, but keep not having time (or forgetting b/c I'm too forgetful for my own good). FINALLY both had some time AND remembered, so here goes!

Back when the 50th Anniversary Special for Doctor Who was coming out, I had a freak out because I was so excited for it (as most Whovians did). Then I found out they were airing the special at a theatre near me and I REALLY freaked out with excitement. Unfortunately none of my real-life friends were Whovians, and I didn't particularly want to go alone... so I asked my sister if she would go with me. She shrugged and was like sure, so I bought us two tickets. Then I said it'd probably be a good idea if she watched some of the show before we went and saw the 50th special, so she at least knew kinda what she was getting into. She said sure.

And thus I embarked on a journey to crash course my sister through Doctor Who is like... less than a month.

This post is to tell you what we crash-coursed through, in the hope that it might help fellow Whovians convert others!! This post is definitely my opinion and by no means a hard-fast guide, because everyone is going to have their own thoughts and opinions on which episodes are most important and why. (Also contained in this post will be spoilers, so non-Whovians, you should probably NOT read on...)

Hobey ho, let's go.i am a mad man with a box )

It's been a while since I posted here - I've had a lot going on, both real life and elsewhere online. My newest addiction is the Beta Branch forum, where a bunch of fantastic people and fantastic writers share their fics for beta-ing, and we flail about TV and movies and Avengers and stuff. It's the best, I love it! But it does take up a ton of my time, as I enjoy posting and betaing for everybody on there and I am not a fast beta, lol.

OH. AND SUPERNATURAL. More specifically, Dean Winchester. I'm halfway through season 4, and I cannot love Dean more. I am obsessed with his face. (And one of these days I'll have to do a TV update of sorts - so many things have been watched. Torchwood, Buffy, Angel... new shows like Sleepy Hollow, Almost Human...)

Anyways, in other news, HAPPY NEW YEAR and stuff! Hopefully I can around to posting here a bit more often, as I don't want to neglect my LJ. ;D

In the meantime, because I haven't done one in aaaages, here is a fic update. Oh! And I'm on AO3 now, so you can now conveniently read me on FF and AO3. If you prefer to read on AO3, here's a link to me profie: http://archiveofourown.org/users/red_b_rackham . (I don't have every fic up on there, but I do have a number of them, and add anything new I post there at the same time I post on FF). Last time I did a fic update was like 2011 (whoa. whoops.), so this might be lengthy, lol.

i can save the world but lose you )
This post will contain show spoilers and book spoilers. I need to flail. If you have not read book 3 (A Storm of Swords) and/or have not seen all of season 3, or you do care about being spoiled, DO NOT CLICK INTO THIS POST.

YOU'VE BEEN WARNED. (That being said, I will separate show and book spoilers, so if you HAVE seen the show, but NOT read the books, you can still read some of the post!)
you win or you lose )
Another year, another Het Bang sign up. Before I get going on that, a few things: this entry will contain pointless Het Bang ramblings. I was going to spew about some Game of Thrones stuff, but I have a feeling that's going to get long, or in any event, should be a separate entry, so I will do that sometime.
all of your wallowing is unbecoming )
I posted this on my tumblr and on AO3, and thought I should come share it here too. :) I took a long time carefully choosing songs - a lot of the time when I make a fandom playlist, it's just sort whatever else feels like that fandom/ship in that moment, but I wanted to create a set of songs that were exactly them, in tone and lyrics, so it took me forever. The result tho, is that I really, really like it. :D

I posted bits of lyrics that most represented them, or were my fav lyrics in the song, but seriously each song is very specifically THEM. Hope you enjoy!
your hearts a mess / you won't admit to it )

Who Update

Ok, I AM CAUGHT UP. Practically just in time, as I believe it comes back on March 31?

Tumblr Gifts

red_b_rackham: (mccoy)
Well, well, long time no see ladies & gents! Finally getting back on here to post all those gifts I made for my wonderful tumblr followers for Christmas. It was a lot of fun, and they gave a wide variety of requests. I hope to make some new stuff soon - probably Skyfall, Iron Man 3, etc.

And side Who update: FINISHED SEASON 6. ALL THE FEELS FOR EVERYTHING, YOU GUYS, HOLY COW. I plan to post about it soon. THIS SHOW.

Anyways, on to the art!

come with me if you want to live )
Ok, here's the art I promised!! I will have a whole crapton more by the end of the month - but I won't promise when I'll get to actually posting it, because you know how good I am with that - because I'm making graphics for all my tumblr followers who want one, as a sort of Thank You For Following And Merry Christmas present. :D I'm having a lot of fun because I really lovely wide range of requests, so once those are all done, I'll be posting them on tumblr, then later on here. Anyways, on to what I currently have for you!

(There's a bunch of Doctor/Rose, because AS;DKFJA; I have a(nother) new OTP. Those two - I can't even.)

i'm burning up a sun just to say goodbye )

Doctor Who!

I AM NOW A WHOVIAN.

Ok, so, let me just say that I've had some horrible real life stuff happening lately, and have been absent. I will eventually get around to posting about it, but the pre-Christmas rush of life is starting now, and, anyways. Basically I was going to ramble about Doctor Who on my tumblr and it started to get really long, so I figured it was a better idea to stick it here and just post lightly on my tumblr instead.

the foreshadowing is killing me )
In between writing that Bang and other things, I have some new art to share. And finally some new icons/avatars! Teaser below, and check out the rest after the cut.

Teaser

             

you can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness )
IT'S OVER.

Holy cow, I don't know how I made it. And frankly, I'm still not happy with my fic - I still think it needs a lot of help - BUT the deadline has passed, Debut Day has passed, and my brain is an uncreative, wrung dry, pile of MUSH, plus I feel just over it, lol. So maybe once I've recovered, I'll take another pass at it.

mushy mushy brains )
OK. I WAS FREAKING OUT BEFORE. NOW I'M REALLY, REALLY, REALLY FREAKING THE HECK OUT.

what am i doing seriously )

Bang Update

Aug. 4th, 2012 01:52 pm
red_b_rackham: (Default)
So right now I have about 20k written (with another rough 3k of extra scenes that I've written pieces of, but haven't gotten to in the linear progression of the fic yet). I've adopted a sort of "No Looking Back" policy, which means I'm trying to just pound it all out and not reading back what I wrote to pick, edit, trim, etc.
trying is the key word )
Ok guys. The Mandatory Check-In post has gone up at [livejournal.com profile] het_bigbang. And I just need a few moments to whine and flail and think out loud, because I am this close to dropping out (*wince*). This could get very repetitive, incoherent and rambly (sorry).

help but i don't know how you can )

Cheers (again)

What I should be doing: a report for work, dishes, working on my Bang for hetbigbang...

What I'm doing instead: Procrastinating, what else?
and ranting about sam and diane so, you know, you're warned? )

Aaages ago, my sister and I used to watch Quantum Leap reruns, and my mom would talk about how good the show was when it started. In her words, "it got really political and really yukky towards the end". I've always enjoyed it, and wanted to see more/all of it, so several years back when I saw some of the seasons for cheap on DVD, I snagged 'em. The past year or so, I've been working my way through the seasons - there's 5 in total. I own 1-4, and had yet to buy 5. And frankly, at this point, I'm pretty sure I will never will bother to buy it.

oh boy )
