Dark side of the Moon (by Flávia Desgranges van der Linden)

I'm so fascinated by this blog. It's presented like each look is a separate submission from a different fashion blogger, but the images are framed and photographed so uniformly that that doesn't make sense?? Whatever. Some great stuff on here. Look at that hot girl wearing Lady Gaga sunglasses and galaxy shorts. Hella cool, right? I want her hair.

Frank Ocean's tumblr
mind is pretty blank right now. i’m sitting in my kitchen listening to age of consent by new order. i like this song.. i fuck with that gwen stefani song ‘cool’ too, i never knew 3000 played keyboards on it- sounds like some teen coming of age movie. i used my birthday week pass to stay in my apartment for too long.. sit still and catch up on some information. i saw that movie ‘glengarry glen ross’ and ‘bottle rocket’, ‘pi’, ‘blackfish’ (sea world is the devil), ‘this is the end’ (hahaha), ‘the purge’(smh), some funny horror movie i forgot the name of ‘…’ . my homie in aussie suggested that i read ‘mr. norris changes trains’.. the writing was really nice. i read ‘the new jim crow’ it made me not fuck with humans for an hour. oh and ‘diffficult men’ which talked about great tv ..dexter, the wire, the sopranos, breaking bad and whatnot. i didn’t watch any news or read it …figured all that shit was gonna happen either way. i’m back to work these days.

Frank Ocean has a tumblr and that goes just about how you'd expect. "the purge (smh)". I'm like, so incredibly happy that this guy exists in the world. Do you ever go about your day and just stop for a second and think to yourself "I wonder what Frank Ocean is doing right now?" Because I do, and his blog helps.

Another note - I did end up finishing two fics for Yuletide!! Furlough (Arrow, Oliver/Felicity, Oliver&Felicity&Diggle holiday fic, ~4k) and Life Important (Fifth Element, Korben/Leeloo, ~3k). Check 'em out if you're interested!!

Awright peeps, here's my Official Yuletide 2012 Rec List Of Infinite Doom And Foreboding, Vaguely Organized For Your Convenience. Warning: it may seem as if it is alphabetical, but it is only Vaguely. Just so you know.

Note: I only read things from canons/fandoms I'm familiar with, and skipped quite a few for time/length that I plan to return to later, so this is by no means a complete list of All The Things That Are Awesome This Yuletide, which is my way of saying that I WANT YOUR RECS, ALL OF THEM, GIMME

Second note: what the fuck, is it really Roald Dahl? Have I spent my entire life mistakenly thinking his name was Ronald? Where does "Roald" come from? Is it a typo of Ronald or is it a popular name in a different culture and I'm being insensitive? How do you pronounce that? His books scare me? This paragraph got derailed somewhere. I have been informed that it is Norwegian. So. There you go.

Third: I'm not counting any of this. You do it if you want to know.

Fandoms: A League of Their Own (1992), Alice (2009), Anastasia (1997), Blast from the Past (1999), American Actor RPF, Burn Notice, Bourne (all movies), Classical Greece and Rome History & Literature RPF, Clueless (1995), Common Law, Die Hard (Movies), Disney Princesses, Dogma (1999), Greek and Roman Mythology, His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman, Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte, Life (TV), Matilda (Roald??

So everyone, everyone check out the shiny Yuletide gifts I got! :D

This first one is for Tin Man (2007), the SyFy miniseries starring Zooey Deschanel, Alan Cumming and Neal McDonough.

Earning the Happily Ever After by Anonymous (6771 words)
Teen and Up Audiences
Wyatt Cain/DG, Azkadellia/Jeb Cain, Ahamo/Queen Lavender Eyes
Ahamo, Wyatt Cain, DG (Tin Man), Azkadellia, Jeb Cain, Lavender Eyes
Contains: Self Harm, Suicidal Thoughts, References to Suicide
Summary: Stories end happily ever after because they stop before the real work begins.

This one kind of blew my mind, because the author literally included almost everything I mentioned in my DYW letter. That's...kind of bad ass.

It's not fluffy, for sure, because it takes a really realistic look at canon, which is what I asked for. Kinda hits you where you live, especially in regards to Azkadellia. Just a really perceptive, interesting story. I loved it.

The next one is for Common Law. FUCK YES.

(We Both Reached for the) Gun! by Anonymous (1779 words)
Teen and Up Audiences
Travis Marks/Wes Mitchell
Summary: “You know why I never said ‘thank you’ before, right?”

It had always seemed so damn important to Wes that Travis thank him, but he’d never stopped to think of why.

Travis shook his head. “I knew it wouldn’t be enough.”

A post-ep for the series (D:) finale, "Gun!" Really fleshes out the last episode, as well as sprinkles in some liberal preslash. Another commenter called it a "post-mortem" which is really the perfect description. Really lovely and great. :)

As for me, I have two fics in the mix for my first Yuletide. If you want to try and guess go ahead - NO CHEATING, [personal profile] jerakeen AND [personal profile] jeweledvixen. I've got my ~eye on you.

One is over 6000 words long, and the fandom is kind of an easy guess. As in, you'll go "oh, no shit!" when you read it. I also think it's kind of typical of what I write, so that's a double-extra "no shit" there.

The other is over 1000, but under 5000. The fandom is also somewhat of an easy guess. I think it's a little less typical of what I usually write. It also contains het and femslash, but no m/m slash.

Both fandoms are somewhat larger than usual for Yuletide. I'll write you a snippet of something if you guess!

Happy Christmas to everyone who celebrates!

So there's a huge blizzard happening here, which caused a minor crisis in that we lost power for about ten or twelve hours. We're just now getting things back up, and the house is cold as hell, so, awesome.

I also had a tiny panic attack regarding Yuletide, because I was literally in the process of finishing my assignment last night when the power crapped out on me. Luckily [personal profile] jerakeen is super awesome and SAVED THE DAY, YAY. So she put my unfinished draft up for me in case I didn't get power back before the deadline (obviously, I did, so I was panicking about nothing, but better safe than sorry, I guess). Now I'm going through and double checking everything before uploading the final version. I might need to add another scene that contains make outs. It ain't Christmas without make outs.

First Yuletide: ~almost accomplished. What up! I'll feel better once I get this all finished and edited and everything, but since I have power again and a space heater and relative reassurance that both of these things will continue to exist in my life for the next seven hours (we've been having sporadic like, what do you call it, brown-outs? Where the power flickers? But things have been relatively steady?), I'm good. I'll get it in before the cut off time for sure.

Is anyone else doing Yuletide? How's it coming? I can't do that meme since this is my first year and all I have are bears, but I know I've got some vets on my list.
