tardis_stowaway: TARDIS under a starry sky and dark tree (molly blank background)
It's time for a meme!  This comes from [livejournal.com profile] ladymercury_10.  I apologize for being a trifle long-winded.

Comment on this post with the word SPARTACUS and I will choose six interests from your profile. You will then explain what they mean/why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.

1. florence + the machine
Florence + the Machine are currently one of my favorite bands/musicians. I love the intelligent dark romanticism of the lyrics, Florence Welch's unique vocals, and the fascinating instrumentation.  (How many other rock bands have a harp?)  The very first time I heart them was when I saw this excellent Master & Doctor fanvid set to "Drumming Song."  I was struck by how cool the song was as well as how perfect it was for the Master in New Who, but I didn't immediately seek out anything else.  Then I downloaded an Adelle Dewitt (of Dollhouse) fanmix that included "Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)" and fell utterly in love.  (I don't know if the DL links are still live, but that fanmix was A+++; it was also my introduction to Mumford & Sons.)  I love both of F+tM's full albums that I have with a passion. Mostly I don't listen to music on repeat, but I can loop either Ceremonials or Lungs pretty much endlessly without tiring of them.  If anyone out there is living under a rock and doesn't know them, here's the video for "Shake It Out."



2. unicorns
When I was a little girl, I was obsessed with unicorns.  I pretended to be a unicorn on the school playground with my friends.  In third grade I planned to write a novel about unicorns, going so far as to inform my parents that they were going to need a bigger mailbox because of all the fan mail I would soon be receiving.  (I no longer remember what the plot was going to be beyond lots of unicorns.  I wrote maybe four pages of it before quitting.)  I had a ridiculous amount of unicorn-themed stuff.  In middle school I mentally escaped from horrible PE classes by daydreaming of unicorns invading the gym to take me away.  I am significantly less obsessed now than I was then, but I still have way more un-ironic love for unicorns than most adults do.  I like that they are magical creatures that are powerful without being violent.

3. folk music
I listen to a ton of folk music.  I enjoy lots of different types of folk:  traditional music (especially from the British Isles and US), classics of the 60s folk revival, indie folk, folk rock, country folk, bluesy folk, filk, and pretty much any other subgenre that can reasonably claim to be part of folk.  I like folk music with a blatant political message and folk music about nothing of consequence.  I like electric folk, folk with big acoustic bands, and folk that's just one person and a guitar.  I have a particular love for multi-part harmony contemporary folk with pop, rock, or alternative influences, including groups like Girlyman, the Wailin' Jennys, and my all-time favorite band the Indigo Girls.  I appreciate the focus a lot of folk has on lyrics and instrumental ability rather than post-production effects.  Listing my other favorite folk musicians would take way too long, so instead here is a link to an awesome folk-centric internet radio station, Folk Alley.

4. science writing
I adore books that do a good job of writing about science for laypeople.  Science is absolutely fascinating, but sometimes the concepts are complex enough that it isn't possible for everyone to get the sense of wonder without some background info.  Some science writing involves a great sense of adventure as the authors travel to exotic places and follow scientists who do strange/dangerous things in the quest for knowledge.  It can be tremendously funny, because let's face it, there's a lot about the universe that's pretty weird and hilarious.  It can be moving or important, especially when it's about the science of politically relevant issues like climate change.  Some of my favorite science writing books include The Song of the Dodo by David Quammen, The World Without Us by Alan Weisman, Stiff by Mary Roach (or any of Mary Roach's hilarious and informative books), and Dr. Tatiana's Sex Advice to All Creation by Olivia Judson.

5. molly hooper
Molly Hooper is a character whose role seems small at first, but she is both important within the story and surprisingly richly drawn.  She has a morbid job cutting up corpses, but she loves cutesy things like cats and cherry-print cardigans.  She's deeply socially awkward, but she is also such an astute reader of people that she sees things about Sherlock even John doesn't spot.  She has a crush on Sherlock that she can't quite get over even when she realizes it will never be reciprocated (maybe not admirable, but how many of us have been in that same boat?).  Still, she has been known to call Sherlock out when he is being an asshole strongly enough that he actually apologizes.  She's got terrible tastes in fonts on her website.  Still, you know she must be fiercely competent at her job because she is consistently the morgue technician Sherlock chooses to work with.  Also, she's a total BAMF.  As a macro I saw on tumblr pointed out, she dated London's most notorious criminal mastermind, then dumped his ass.  Then there's the little detail that she appears to have been the key to Sherlock's survival, and she is possibly the only person (aside from maybe some people in his homeless network?) who knows that he is alive.  Molly keeps her secrets.  She's always counted.

Molly-centric fic recs, to share the Hooper Trooper fun:
Advanced Surveillance by spastasmagoria (Molly poses as Sherlock's date for a case.  Hilarious and sexy.)
The Mourning Woman by M_Leigh (post-Reichenbach, lovely)
The Anatomist by rosa_acicularis (Mollyarty, now thoroughly jossed by s2, but still essential reading for those who like a touch of the dark with their awesome Molly)
The Breeze Deep on the Inside by [livejournal.com profile] seren_ccd (Molly/Lestrade, great characterizations).  Further Molly recs very welcome!

6. dar williams
Dar Williams is a folk-pop singer-songwriter whose work I've loved since high school.  I don't recall how I first heard of her, but I know the first album of hers that I owned was Mortal City.  I listened to the title song of that album on repeat my freshman year of college, when I was lonely, homesick, and very cold.  Her songs are smart but also often catchy.  While some of her songs are really funny ("I Won't Be Your Yoko Ono"), she has also written about depression in ways I find deeply resonant ("After All").  She also writes a damn good political song.  I got to see her live back in 2006, when she played at a music festival near Tallahasse, where I lived then.  She puts on a great live show.

Here's "The Mercy of the Fallen," perhaps my favorite of Dar's songs.  (You can tell I really love it because I titled a fanfic after it.)

Here's a meme grabbed from [livejournal.com profile] the_redjay.  Just so y'all know, I probably won't be able to actually reply to comments until Thursday night, but I wanted to go ahead and post while it's on my mind.  Fandoms open for this include Doctor Who, Sherlock, the Whedonverse, LoTR, and probably whatever else you might remember me posting about.

Give me a character and I'll tell you:
Why I like them
Why I don’t
Favorite episode (scene if movie, book, manga, etc)
Favorite season/movie/book/volume
Favorite line
OTP
Brotp
Head Canon
Unpopular opinion
A wish
An oh-god-please-don't-ever-happen
5 words to best describe them
My nickname for them
tardis_stowaway: TARDIS under a starry sky and dark tree (the sound of torchwood)
I've done this meme before, but [livejournal.com profile] isiscaughey just did it again.  I thought it might be fun to play again.

1. Open up your music player. Hit shuffle.
2. Record the first few lines of the first 25 songs that come up that do not give away the name of the song. Skip instrumentals, but don't skip the embarrassing ones.
3. Make hapless LJ/DW denizens guess the song names and artists. Google is cheating. For musical songs, the name of the musical is acceptable in place of the artist.
4. Cross out the songs that have been guessed.
5. Pass it along.

Now, on to y'all's questions.


I was greatly pleased by how many people asked about Death )

tardis_stowaway: TARDIS under a starry sky and dark tree (in want of a companion)
Grabbing a meme from [livejournal.com profile] kerravonsen:

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"

3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.


The list is made.  Anyone want to play?  ;)

[Error: unknown template qotd] Christmas for the most part, with a few private elements of Solstice. In honor of holiday traditions, here's a meme I grabbed from [livejournal.com profile] rosa_acicularis:

1. Eggnog or Hot Chocolate?
Hot chocolate.  I only started enjoying egg nog a few years ago, and I still feel that hot chocolate is superior.

tardis_stowaway: TARDIS under a starry sky and dark tree (falling slowly)
I grabbed this one from [livejournal.com profile] eponymous_rose.  Let's play!

1. Open up your music player. Hit shuffle.
2. Record the first few lines of the first thirty songs that come up that do not give away the name of the song. Skip instrumentals, but don't skip the embarrassing ones.
3. Make hapless LJ denizens guess the song names and artists. Google is cheating. For musical songs, the name of the musical is acceptable in place of the artist.
4. Least hapless LJ denizen wins admiration. That's right, just like a lobbyist in budget season, the points don't matter.


ETA: 17 guessed, 13 to go! Some of the remaining ones are pretty obscure or hard to guess from lyrics alone, but there's a few I bet someone out there knows.

Do you hear my iTunes sing? )
tardis_stowaway: TARDIS under a starry sky and dark tree (book + billie)
I finally fit that NPR Sci-Fi/Fantasy book list meme that's been doing the rounds into my busy schedule of ways to procrastinate on useful activities.  This list includes a lot of damn good books, but it also has some huge problems.  The most obvious is that it is disproportionately books by white men, even beyond the diversity problems in the genre as a whole. The way they lumped together some huge series as one entry while others are split up or only have one book on the list is somewhat mystifying.    One of the rules was that young adult books aren't allowed, which I think is a rather artificial distinction given how many YA books appeal to adults and how many of the "adult" books on the list I read as a tween or teen.

I've completely read 36 of the 100 entries (using "read" loosely; two of those I only took in as audiobooks and one through hearing my dad read it aloud.)  I also included sugestions of books I think should have been on the list at the end.

Books, books, books )

I picked this excellent meme up from [livejournal.com profile] isiscaughey .  Here are five companions the Doctor would have been lucky to have. 

party in the blue box! )
tardis_stowaway: (innuendo squad)
Thought of the day:  you know what the Whoniverse really needs?  Isaiah Mustafa, the Old Spice guy, playing a Time Agent.  THIS IS THE CASTING IDEA YOUR CASTING IDEA COULD SMELL LIKE.  Can you not imagine him hanging around with young Jack and John Hart, making outrageous innuendos, seducing people of all species and genders, and alternately fighting and committing crime? 

I am not sure whether I want this character more on Torchwood S4, because it sounds like it needs some wisecracking Time Agently hotness, or Doctor Who, because I think watching the reactions of Eleven, Amy and Rory would be hilarious. 

Meanwhile, courtesy of a large portion of my flist, we have a fic love meme.  I feel a little greedy posting this, but I am human and I like hearing kind words.  Hopefully encouragement will excite my muse.  The Doctor/Jack fic is REALLY CLOSE, and I need to finish it up and get cracking on another project.

the that's my favorite! meme

Here's an icon meme ganked from [livejournal.com profile] isiscaughey.

1. Reply to this post with the word PIRATES (or NINJAS) and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.

Last night I discovered American Science & Surplus, which sells everything from laboratory beakers to brass sextants to military surplus "oxygen warning switches" to a package of 101 assorted springs.  There's not really anything there that I need, but there are zillions of things that appeal to the part of me that loves new laboratory gear, school supplies, and random weird stuff.  It's all so cheap, you find yourself thinking, "it only costs $3 for 20 five ml glass ampules!  I'm sure there's some use for them!" Plus, the descriptions are often quite entertaining (ex: Like a narcissistic fashion model, but much more useful. You get 10 feet of 3/8" wide, light-green hook-and-loop ribbon. Wouldn't our life be easier if we could say the word that rhymes with Welcro? Yes, it would.)   I'm putting together a steampunk outfit for DragonCon, and there's a bunch of stuff that looks like costume materials. 

I have a vid rec!  "You'll Be Bright" by [livejournal.com profile] diarmi is marvelous celebration of the female companions of New Who.  It's energetic and full of the wonder of exploration. Rose, Martha, Donna, and Amy all get plenty of love.  Here's the LJ entry for feedback or download, and here's the youtube version:



I think I'll finally finish off the blasted TV meme now.

Saddest character death. Cut for sadness. )

Urgh, that was depressing.  What we need now are some pictures of weird-looking animals.  There are plenty to be found on the Ugly Endangered Things blog, which highlights the plight and the coolness of endangered species that lack the charisma of giant pandas.  Some of the most recent entries are kind of stretching the definition of ugly, but the archives feature some real doozies, like the Ohio lamprey.
tardis_stowaway: TARDIS under a starry sky and dark tree (you're writing fanfic?!)
Meme time!  First, I'm nabbing the "seven things about my writing process" meme from [livejournal.com profile] eponymous_rose  and [livejournal.com profile] rosa_writes .  (Cue skeptical cries of "you have a writing process?!?"  Yes, I do. It's just so slow that it rarely results in actual fic.)

1.  Stories usually start with a general concept.  I turn that concept over in my head for a while, thinking of some scenes and plot elements that might happen in that scenario.  Usually by the time I start writing I have the beginning sitting in my head in a fair amount of detail, plus a few key scenes along the way.  The ending and the rest of the middle are generally much vaguer at the start.  This method results in a lot of temporarily stalled and permanently abandoned stories on my hard drive, but I like working things out as I go along.  Outlines are rare and generally made halfway through a story if I feel like I need a better idea of the structure. 

2.  For longer stories, I usually have one or more sources of mood inspiration besides the DW canon.  That inspiration typically gives me my titles as well as some themes or a tone.  For the "Illyria" series it's Twelfth Night.  For "Path of Needles," it's clearly oodles of fairy tales, especially Little Red Riding Hood, plus various works derived from fairy tales.  I'm working on a mostly-done Doctor/Jack story entitled "Mercy of the Fallen" after the Dar Williams song. 

3.  I do much of my writing in coffee shops.  I concentrate much more easily there than at home.  In addition to having caffeine, I think the effort of tuning out the other people focuses me on what I'm doing, plus the time limit of only having so long I can reasonably occupy a table tends to  prod me to get writing and not dither around on the internet.  My bank account doesn't like this habit, but I really am much more productive there than in my apartment.

4.  I edit incessantly as I write.  I've heard that this is a bad habit, but I just have trouble leaving a sentence alone until it's right.  I can sometimes manage to make myself a deal to come back later if I realize that a large section needs fixing.  Generally, however, I like to get things as good as possible before moving on.  Of course I edit even more once I'm done with a draft, but I rarely make large changes in the shape of the story once the ending is in place.

5.  I almost always type my stories rather than writing by hand first.  The ability to move words around easily is invaluable.  While I don't usually create fast enough for it to matter, on those magic days when my muse is in hyperdrive I type faster than I write.  On the rare occasions when I make an outline, however, these are always on paper.  MS Word's autoformatting is a pain in the butt, and if I'm going to have an outline I want to be able to see it without having to toggle between windows.

6.  When I decide I need to cut out or drastically revamp a paragraph or more, I usually paste the original version at the end of the story's file along with other cut snippets.  Knowing that I'm not yet irrevocably getting rid of those words I slaved over gives me the confidence to make bigger changes and try new things.  I rarely put the originals back, but I like having them there just in case I change my mind.

7.  I rarely place in chapter divisions as I write.  Every now and then events will clearly suggest a chapter break (like the moment Rose exploded in "Path of Needles," which was a chapter ending from before I set fingers to keyboard for that story), but usually I treat the story as a whole until the first draft is done.  Once I'm sure how long it is and I know the plot is basically settled, then it's time to divide it and tweak the story accordingly. 

And now, ye olde 30 Days of TV Meme.

Day 27:  Best pilot episode

Eh, most of my favorite shows were not at their best in their pilots.  I remember the pilot of Twin Peaks as being very good, if sad, though it's been many years since I saw that.  Lost had a cool pilot episode that did an impressive job of introducing a lot of characters and some mystery.  However, I think I may award this one to Heroes.  The beautifully shot pilot set up a bunch of intriguing characters.  When I rewatched Heroes S1 (the only season really worth a rewatch) a few months ago, I was astonished at how much happened in the pilot.  By the end of the episode, Hiro has had his "yatta!" moment of teleportation to NYC, Claire's dad is seen to be involved in some suspicious business, Isaac has painted the bomb exploding, and Peter has jumped off a building, only to be caught by Nathan. On first viewing, I was left eager to know more about these people, their powers, and how they could be connected. 

All three pilots I nominated are from shows I stopped watching before their endings.  Apparently a great beginning leads to increased likelihood of disappointing me later.

Having missed a few days for no good reason, I'm going to do another double-header of the 30 days of TV meme.

Day 25:  A show you plan on watching (old or new)


There are many!  Here's a list of some of them. 

-True Blood (I actually just watched the first two eps.  The discs with the rest of the season are high in my Neflix queue.)
-Pushing Daisies
-Due South
-Ashes to Ashes
-Blood Ties
-Being Human
-Battlestar Galactica
-Castle
-Brisco County Jr. (As a wee child, I actually watched this when it originally aired.  Recently I've been struck by the urge to rewatch to see if it was as much of an awesome western sci-fi comedy adventure as I vaguely remember.)
-possibly Glee

Day 26:  OMG WTF? Season Finale

This goes to the series finale of Angel, "Not Fade Away."  The episode featured the death of multiple important characters and ended with the remaining characters about to fight an impossible battle against a huge army of baddies, including a dragon.  The show left us dangling from a cliff and walked away forever.  I don't think it was a poor choice of ending; an overly neat or optimistic resolution would have felt out of keeping with the spirit of the show.  However, I was definitely left cursing at my TV screen and wondering where the hell the rest of the show went. 

Also, Spike read at a poetry slam.  That alone is enough to induce an OMG WTF?!  (and possibly a squee) among Whedonverse viewers.

Much of the country is having a heat wave.  My foggy spot of the California coast is trying to join in.  Today, it was actually warm enough for me to wear a little sundress all afternoon and into the evening!  There was sunlight and everything!  *parties* 

The molasses cookies I made last night were quite tasty, although some of them got a tad burnt on the underside.  I counteracted the excessive number of cookies in my diet by deciding to start trying to up my fitness by mixing in a bit of running with my walk.  Conclusion:  running is tiring, y'all.  I would make a lousy companion on Doctor Who.  I'd like to try building myself up so I'm not so embarrassingly unfit at anything above a moderate walking pace. We shall see if this determination lasts.

Tonight, I went to see Celtic band Molly's Revenge in concert.  I've seen them once before, but they were definitely worth a second visit.  They put on a wonderful, energetic show.  The presence of bagpipes in a fairly small concert venue means that the music overpowers you, but in a good way.  The feeling is not argh, my ears; it's hey, my toe is tapping of its own accord! Woo!  Meanwhile, I seem to have fallen behind in the TV meme again.

News update:  still not Doctor Who time.  Existing in linear time is such a pain. 

Meanwhile, does it make me a horrible traitor that I would be content if Ghana beats the US in the World Cup?  I was initially rooting for South Africa, because I really loved the semester I spent living there and because they seem to have so much enthusiasm for hosting the cup, vuvuzelas and all.  (Speaking of vuvuzelas, I find all the hatred directed at them to be slightly off-putting.  Yeah, they're annoying.  Sports fans do loud and annoying things in all countries.  Vuvuzelas at least are less rude than screaming insults or making obscene gestures or starting riots.  Some of the commentary against them has a tone of cultural imperialism, assuming that ways people in Europe and the Americas celebrate are superior to the way all of those crass Africans are just making a bunch of noise.  No, vuvuzelas aren't very melodic, but I bet it's hella fun to blow one in the middle of a huge crowd of other people doing the same.  Plus, it's just fun to say "vuvuzela.")  Anyway, South Africa was thoroughly disqualified, but I think it would be great if at least one African team did really well in the continent's first World Cup.  Ghana's the only one left.  Also, while I have noticed what seems like an increased interest in this World Cup here in the US this year, I suspect that citizens of Ghana want it more.  So of course I'd be happy to see my home do well, but I won't be bothered if Ghana knocks us out.

In other news from South Africa, thieves ransacked a police station under renovation, taking pretty much everything including the kitchen sink.  I want to know how badly the thieves cleared out the bathroom; do the cops have anything to go on?

TV Meme, Day 17:  Favorite miniseries


It is a truth universally acknowledged... )
tardis_stowaway: TARDIS under a starry sky and dark tree (it's my time war)
Today I went in to donate blood, and they asked me if I'd be willing to donate platelets instead.  I decided to give it a shot.  It was a looong time to spend with a needle in my arm.  However, time is something I have plenty of right now, and it seems they were running a bit low on platelets, so I was glad to do it.  In other real life news, if someone in an area where it is way too hot would like to send over 10 or 15˚F, I think we'd both be happier. 

TV Meme, Day 16:  Your Guilty Pleasure Show

When I'm living on my own, I don't watch much TV other than the few quality shows I love, so no real guilty pleasures here.  When I visit my parents, it's a different story.  My dad is likely to flip the TV on just to see what's showing, and I sometimes join him so we can mock whatever bad stuff is on, like Sci-Fi channel original movies.  One really bad show I remember sitting through all the way on several occasions and guiltily enjoying was World's Wildest Police Chases.  It's just a bunch of real police chases with really cheesy, overdramatic voiceovers.  It has the sort of appeal that makes traffic slow down to look at wrecked cars, but with the show you get to see the action.  I'm not proud of enjoying seeing real-world destruction, but if I recall correctly the show stuck to chases where nobody died.

I suppose I also feel a little guilty about my fondness for Crocodile Hunter.  That show I will watch on my own if I notice it on, though it doesn't rerun as often now that Steve Irwin is dead.  The premise of the show is basically "let's go find some animals and grab them!!!  Wooo!!!"  Thoughtful science it ain't.  However, Steve Irwin's infectious enthusiasm for pretty much every living creature on earth was a genuine good thing for promoting conservation and inspiring kids to love even creepy crawly animals.  I only feel a teensy bit of guilt about this show.
