Oh, hello 2016!

Yuletide has come and gone, and this was only the second yuletide I've ever participated in. Usually the holiday season is far far too busy for me to take part, and probably I was too busy to this year, but I really wanted to take part this year so I forced myself to and I'm glad I did. I had an AWESOME yuletide. I somehow ended up with THREE amazing stories:

By the Numbers by Frea_O, a beautifully written and angst-filled post season 1 Dark Matter fic from Five's POV that just makes me eager for the next season

Johnny Jaqobis and the Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad Day (That Just Might Be Okay in the End) by igrockspock, a funny and extremely in character "how they met" Killjoys story with Dutch and Johnny that could be an actual episode

Little Sister by Eustacia Vye, a lovely little slice of life ficlet that takes place pre-end-of-season 1 Dark Matter fic with content that is not sad but makes me sad knowing what happens

These fics were all super amazing and I feel really spoiled. <3 I totally won yuletide. :D

Reveals have happened so I can share my fic now too. I wrote a thing called New Hampshire, a Sarah/Kyle Terminator: Genisys fic. My recip was pretty much my feels twin and this was only like my 3rd attempt at the story, haha. Once I came up with the idea the thing pretty much wrote itself. I think I'm rather pleased with it in the end.

I'm hoping for 2016 I will write more than 2 fics in the year! I saw the 2015 fic year in review meme going around and was all oh I should do that, then realized I only wrote 2 fics. Not really much to work with there hahaha.

I feel like this is kind of a terrible song but also ridiculous catchy and I can't stop listening.

This is the first year when I'm just already tired of Christmas before it even happens. I've been attempting to inject the Christmas spirit in myself but it's not working all that great. I had some work friends over last night and we watched Christmas movies and it was nice but also I'm just meh on the holiday this year. I don't know why. :(

Still haven't seen Star Wars. I'm kind of waiting til the crowds thin out at the theater. I can only do the crazy crowds when it's a Marvel movie haha. But so far the overwhelming response is "awesome movie" so I'm excited to see it.

I'm in the middle of watching The Great British Baking Show on netflix and it's a+++. Compared to US cooking competition shows, there is next to no drama. Everyone is mostly just lovely and nice and wants to do their best rather than DESTROYYYYYY THE COMPETITIONNNNNNN. And everyone's so British. *someone presents a burned as fuck pie* "Oh it's just a bit too overbaked at the top there." I recommend it to everyone as a nice low stress cooking competition show with lots of delicious looking foods.

Last week's episode of Agents of Shield was sooooo gooooood. Like, it was Jemma-centric which is always good cause she's my boo but also it just had sort of a classic scifi story feel to it and it was really good ahhh. One of the best episodes of tv I've seen in a long time. There's a new episode of Shield on tonight and I'm just like can I watch last week's episode again instead? haha.

Grimm premiered last night and I enjoyed it. Some vague spoilers. )

Apparently the time shift happened.. at.. some point? All I know is, I'm only two hours behind the east coast again so I can watch my nightly tv even sooner! Woo!

Recently someone commented on one of my icon posts about loving the textures I use, and I rar'd up all my icon size textures for her and since it's such a good resource, I'll share it with you all too. A file of over 2700 icon-size textures that I've collected over the years. HAVE AT IT.

Did we all watching Longmire season 4? Good right? I really enjoyed it.

Back when I spent my life in landcomms, one of my least favorite activities were nonograms. In a weird twist of fate, I have discovered I like nonograms and have actually become mildly obsessed with them. A month ago I installed a random app on my phone with lots of different numbers-related puzzle games and nonograms were one of them and I gave it a shot and once I discovered a strategy I realized they are actually fun logic challenges and I've been solving them non stop. Too bad I couldn't have figured that out back in my landcomm days lol.

I have (another) interview at the library today. I interviewed a few weeks ago and they did not offer me the job, and I got a voicemail from them saying I didn't get it but I was a strong applicant and they were passing my resume on. I got a call a week later from another department wanting to interview me, but it was very short notice and I had to work the day/time they wanted me to come in. So I had to decline. But then I got another call like another week later inviting me to another interview. Which happened to fall on my day off so I could do it. So I have that this afternoon. This will be my third interview with the library in 1.5 years haha. We'll see how it goes...

For more entertaining fare, here are a few selections from Noelle's late summer 2015 playlist:



I'm really ok with this style of music making a modernized comeback.

OOPS I committed fic.

low is a height a Grimm Nick & Trubel fic post season-4, 5575 words of introspection friendship and angst cause that's the kind of shit I'm into.

But be warned my fic-writing skills are super rusty. After I uploaded it I realized the last fic I'd uploaded was in July of 2014. Yikes.

BUT I MISSED WRITING so I want to get back into it. Also I don't know why I wrote Grimm fic when my life has been 100% Stargate-oriented the past month.

Speaking Stargate, I'm nearly done. My thoughts after getting 3/4 of the way into season 10:

I'm not holding back in here! )

gosh i love arrows.

also watching tv, making icons, writing fic, reading comics, and generally fanning it up.
