"Fame isn't everything, is it, Mr Potter?"

Alan Rickman did a lot of amazing work and I know he was so much more than one series or even multiple plays.

But for me, in a way, he will always be Severus Snape, the character I grew up with, loved and hated, worried and brooded. He breathed life into a complex character who represented so much to so many, and gave me fits of love and fits of fury, made me want to shake him and hug him, and wish that in the end, he’d recognized that he’d done the right things for the wrong reasons, but that they’d been done anyways.

Either way, farewell Mr. Alan Rickman. I hope wherever you are, the air smells of spices.

Loki, Thor, and the Avengers

Or, how it's been a year since I fell into this new fandom and I still have not written fic for it.

So this is incredibly late (wow, I've been doing that a lot lately) to the game, because I started obsessing about this back in... May? June? Of 2012? It was a few weeks after the Avengers movie had come out. Let me make a deep, dark confession: I was not a huge fan of the new Cinematic Avenger's universe until the actual Avengers movie came along.

lots of blathering about MCU )

So what I'm saying, after all that blather and tl;dr, is that I have a new fandom that I've been wallowing in for the last ten months or so. Yeah.

Yuletide 2012 REcs

Very late to the game, me, but wanted to throw the recs in anyway.

Speaking of which, I've very much into Once Upon a Time right now, particularly Rumpelstiltskin and Belle. And I've discovered something rather frustrating: I no longer know how to participate in a fandom. I'm almost at a loss of where to start (except the fic-reading. I always know where to go look for fics.)

Regina, "Once Upon a Time"

I think the best thing "Once Upon a Time" did, was to create terrifying, manipulative, and ultimately, sympathetic Evil Queen. The next best thing was to create a anti-heroine who wouldn't fall short of that. And wasn't perfect.

love triangles are weird

I think I'm getting old, but I'm always a little mystified by love triangles in fiction. It seems to be most prevalent in young adult fiction, but there's definitely plenty of it everywhere else.

I mean. Come on. It's difficult enough these days to find one person who's just for you; how does one even deal with two? Wouldn't it be incredibly hard to find yourself in love with two people? Yeah, you could say it's 'romantic' or that there's just a part of you that will always be with the other person you didn't choose, but... I don't think that's a good thing.

Love's pretty crap, man. It's like this horrible thing that punches you in the eye and then uppercuts you like a pixelated scene from Street Fighter II when you're staggering back in excruciating pain.

Or this could be the crankyoldmaid in me talking. WHO KNOWS?

Series: Rurouni Kenshin

Character/Pairing: Shinta, Kasumi, Akane, Sakura

Warnings: Spoilers for the series

Notes: I haven't written Rurouni Kenshin fic in a long time, and I think it shows. I wanted to give a voice for those three girls who died to save Shinta, this little boy they'd only just met.

The beginning scene was inspired by a part in “Twelve Kingdoms”, where Suzu becomes a maid and is taken from her family.

Before the Battousai, there was Kenshin. Before Kenshin, there was a little boy named Shinta. Kasumi will ever only know Shinta. )

Dreamwidth

I do things slowly. Very slowly. Though I joined AO3 for the 2009 Yuletide, I didn't bother uploading older stories to it until... well, now. Same with Dreamwidth. There wasn't any grand reason; I was just very, very apathetic.

But finally, finally, I'm starting to cross-post. I feel like setting off fireworks.

So. Uh. Yeah! I'm still me at dreamwidth.

Maybe I'll be writing regularly again, maybe I won't. Who knows!?

The future is always changing!

Here and Alive!

I'm here! I'm alive! I'm going to import all my LJ entries here! I'm trying to figure out a place (or rather, two places) to store all my fanfiction! It's going to happen! 2012 is a new year!

... this is the sort of time I wish I had magic fingers that could snap! and everything would automatically configure into exactly how I want it to be. Such wishes!

Happy new year! And I just realized I haven't read any Yuletide fics yet!

Resolution of 2012 - Writing

I feel like I've been outside of fandom for so long, I'm not even sure how to be in fandom now. Seriously. In between the time I slowed down on writing and fandom (excepting, somewhat, my Doctor Who period) and now, I've approached my tenth year (!) on LJ, Dreamwidth is the new place to be, and I haven't written anything NOT for a charity auction, fic-exchange, or Yuletide in... well, quite some time. I haven't counted the years because if I counted I'd probably have to throw myself under a very large bus.

So! Resolution for 2012? I will write five fics this year that are NOT (heh heh) a part of a larger project. I figure giving myself a concrete number will keep my from weaseling out like I usually do. Heh heh.

And I'm going to start participating in fandom again. I think. And really, I feel so awkward and new, I'm a n00b again! Who SAYS YOU CAN'T GET BACK YOUR VIRGINITY?!

Well, I guess there will be no frantic writing this year, in the wee hours of the deadline. =P
