1. You are on the wrong continent to play Critical Role.

2. You are not caught up on Critical Role. They're not going to roll back the story 50 episodes or so just so you can join in.

3. You are not a character in Critical Role, either.

4. Critical Role does not take place in Fallen London.

5. You do not know how to make a lightsaber. No, not even if Percy helps.

6. You cannot break through two different layers of reality (from Fallen London to the world of Critical Role, and from there to the 'real world') so you can steal the DM's notes and METAGAME. No. Stop.


The way you actually knew it was a dream: getting wifi on your phone when, and I quote, "there's no wi-fi in the Neath". Really, self? REALLY? It's getting wi-fi in Fallen London that broke your suspension of disbelief? Really?

(Then I lucid-dreamed my way into stealing the DM's notes but woke up before the actual metagaming could happen.)

1. [community profile] nightonficmountain should open on schedule as all assignments are in. Of course there is the possibility that someone'll delete their work and/or entire ao3 account between now and Wednesday /still bitter


2. The latest Doctor Who episode made me cry. I'm a sucker for certain tropes. Also, I love me some Romans (especially Romans getting to face their bullshit) and that was an A++ use of Tacitus' "They make a desert and call it peace" speech. Also also, crows. YAY CROWS!


3. I bought some comics, because the bear is dead.*

* No actual bear harmed in the making of this post.

I got to see all the fandom folks today! It was awesome! The RPG went well.


I don't think I'm going to run [community profile] history_exchange this year. I didn't think about it until recently, I couldn't even remember how I'd spelled it (historyex? historyexchange?) and nobody seems to have missed it. I can't really run it now because I don't have enough visibility to set dates on it anymore. Maybe next year.

[community profile] nightonficmountain might open on time this year! This has never happened before; Is the curse finally broken? (Probably just jinxed it, oops.)

[community profile] starwarsrollingremix will most likely run again next year, but I might need to recruit someone for the starter story this time around.


Not much going on fannishly with me right now. I'm not even really writing fic? I am writing things, but I can't really point at any of them and say "That's my main fic project". Mostly focusing on the novel and NoFM (sometimes I am tempted to do a ~lessons modding fan exchanges has taught me~ post, hahaha).

I'm kind of doing fanart. Having 'preset' appearances cuts down a lot of overhead when the point of a daily sketch is to practice anatomy/shading/etc.

SLEEPING AND EATING AND SLEEPING AND EATING AND SLEEPING.

I was supposed to visit family, but here's my complete schedule:
- Slept on the train there
- Dinner
- Slept until noon
- Lunch
- Nap x2 (brief interruption to close windows because I was cold)
- Dinner
- Read a bit
- Slept until 11h30
- Lunch
- Nap
- Read a bit
- Dinner
- Woke up at 11h
- Lunch
- Nap/read
- Train back (dozed off several times)
- Slept

Maybe I am slightly tired.

(Stuff I read: a documentary/investiagtion journalism comic + the first chapter of a friend's novel and I have to say I am really fucking happy I've been pushing him to write for years, because it's great and I texted him immediately to say WHERE IS THE REST? [lots of thoughts] hahaha)

dhampyresa: (OM NOM NOM)
Eurovision thoughts: MOLDOVA WAS FUCKING ROBBED.


An incomplete list of stuff I did while away from the internet: art (pencils, oil paint, watercolours), minimal writing (did you know it's hard to write without a computer), swimming (3K IN 1H42!!! record à battre), read a lot (mostly in French --  also I have thoughts), was told that I wasn't an asshole, had my teeth hurt like bloody hell (it's nothing to worry about), saw friends, went on dates, learned some poems and probably spent longer going "OMG I HAVE MUSCLES NOW :D" than I should have, but you know what? I HAVE MUSCLES NOW!  Hell, yesterday I even managed 100 push-ups (in 10 sets of 10, not in one go). I am severely regretting this choice today, but I did.


Between voluntary break, Eurovision and broken computer, I've been away for pretty much a month. WHAT'D I MISS? It can be big stuff, small stuff, I'm sure I've missed a lot.

The on/off power button on my laptop is broken which means it won't turn on. I'm writing this on my phone. This is putting a serious damper on things.

I need new parts for the repairs; the labour I can do myself. I'll be around less until said repairs are done.

I'm starting to think NoFM is a curse on my electronics.

I'm going to cut back on the internet for the next two weeks, because Reasons. [community profile] nightonficmountain will be unaffected.

Also I will be entirely unjoinable from April 28 to May 2.

dhampyresa: (Sarcasm shall be the way)


HELA IS SUCH A BADASS and her headress looks great! Valkyrie also looks really good. I am excite.


I'm pretty sure I've made a decision about my LJ account; giving myself one more day to make sure.


I think I'm going to make a comm for ship/fandom manifestos (on DW).

dhampyresa: (Default)
I haven't decided what I'm going to do with LJ yet. Also it would be nice if my internet would behave itself, ffs.

1. Have a tagset review period for your exchanges. Trust me on this. (Also, Morbane is amazing.)


2. Sometimes I am irrational about things and don't know how to explain without sounding bonkers if I even know why, but apparently I react really badly to being told "good luck" and to the existence of lovememes (people are free to take part in lovememes all they want, I just don't want to hear about them, ever). I need some sort of blocker for these things.


3. I can swim 2.5k in one go! (Past total: 25 350 / 585 689. Current total: 27 850 / 585 689.)

Some time last night I made the apparently colossal mistake of trying to boot my computer in safe mode. Reader, that did not work out.

I was unable to even access my password screen. After hours of fruitless frantic rebooting and phone-searching for a solution (it's no use telling me how to solve the issue from the troubleshoot menu if I can't access the troubleshoot menu) I gave up and went to bed past my bedtime. Then I woke up before my alarm (bleh) spent some more time fruitlessly trying to fix it to no avail. Then I took a shower and ate breakfast and when I tried again I could suddenly access the troubleshoot menu! So I fixed my computer, copied some important files I hadn't backed up yet and checked if it booted properly now. It did.

I don't even know. But hey! I have my computer back!


Exchange news: Self, you need to stop claiming pinch-hits and being an idiot. You're not even in that exchange! WHY

Other Exchange news: Night on Fic Mountain progressing as it should. Worldbuilding exchange fast approaching (eep!).


And now I'm going to go read about the time when the Seine rose 8m62 (23'3") and Paris flooded. AND THEN IT FROZE OVER. Good times.

.It's that time of the year again! As readers of this journal may know, I mod several fanwork exchanges. The biggest of those, [community profile] nightonficmountain , just opened nominations. There may be venting (most likely under-lock) because let me tell you, I have not missed the ao3 nomination approval interface and especially not its tendency to throw 404s at me when I've just validated a bunch of noms, aaaaaaaargh. /the glamorous life of a fandom mod



I've seen a bunch of movies lately I haven't talked about on here -- and should -- Arrival (Hollywood scifi), Patients (French slice-of-life/biography) and Hidden Figures/Les Figures de l'ombre (US Historical) all of which were good.

I also saw Logan. Look. I have been for X-23 on the big screen for literally over a decade. I cannot overstate this: the very first time X-23 appeared, in a season 3 episode of X-Men:Evolution, I was sitting in front of my TV going "SHE IS THE GREATEST AND HER FEET CLAWS ARE THE COOLEST". Based on that, you'd think I would have had high expectations for this movie, but the thing is, I didn't, mostly because I didn't believe it was actually real. Like. There's an X-23 movie????? Is this the real life? But I have to say this was an awesome X-23 movie. Also SHE IS THE GREATEST AND HER FEET CLAWS ARE THE COOLEST.

Finally wrote a thing for [community profile] starwarsflashmeme ! The prompt was "Love" and I started thinking about real love's kiss and Sleeping Beauty!Finn, but couldn't figure out how to make sense of the vines and then boom! Of course! The Black Mercy!
dhampyresa: (MY BIRTHDAY HAS SQUID)
My dream last night consisted entirely of me finding out the last book of a series I've been following was out, acquiring said book from my comicshop and then reading said comic book for the rest of the dream (90+%). It was a damn good comic book, I have to say, and I enjoyed it greatly. It did have some issues though, and I'm glad to say the actual series is still going in real life (the dream!last book's number actually came out several years/books ago).

It's not even the first time I've had a dream consisting almost entirely of me reading a comicbook. They're good comics, every time, so I can't complain, really.
dhampyresa: (SCIENCE SMASH)
I'm tired of having to defend enjoying the things I enjoy. As I just told my dad when he disparaged my desire to see Logan, "Look, I have been waiting for this movie* for over a decade. You will not take this from me." And he didn't.


*X-23 IS GOING TO BE IN A MOVIE OMG OMG OMG (been waiting for this since she first showed up in X-Men:Evolution -- OMG SHE'S GOING TO BE IN A MOVIE)

2. I've been trying to memorise the lyrics to Georges Brassens' Supplique pour être enterré à la plage de Sète. So far I've managed the first five stanzas (lyrics at the link).

I got two fics for the Star Wars Rare Pairs treat run! Both femslash. (For those keeping track, that means I got six fics in this exchange, all of which were femslash.)

Summary: It’s possible that any number of things could have happened. The data could never have been here in the first place; Hux could have been given bad intel. Anyone could have stolen it over the years, not knowing the value of what they had.
Or Phasma was simply minutes too late and the data stick is now in the hands of the girl scavenger.
You know what? I'm also going to consider this one canon.



Speaking of Star Wars! I still haven't seen Rogue One.

Tbh, right now, between wanting to avoid spoilers and also wanting to WRITE ALL THE YULETIDE*, I'm staying away from the internet for the next while.

* I claimed a pinch-hit and also I have like five fics I want to finish and post so it is A LOT of yuletide.
dhampyresa: (A most terrible case of the Star Wars)
Tomorrow evening I'm might try to see Rogue One at the late night double feature picture show.

Then I'm going to wake up before dawn to go out of town for the week-end to visit family. See y'all on Monday.
