Is there anyone willing to beta a chapter of my WIP Together We Stand? I got an unexpected burst of motivation to write, and unfortunately my usual beta is unavailable. You can email me at svfan4eva [at] yahoo [dot] com, or just comment on this post. I'll love you forever and ever!!

I started watching season six of Mad Men. SPOILERS )

Spoilers for TVD )
spuffy_noelle: (The Hunger Games - Peeta)
I signed up for [community profile] seasonal_spuffy, but have I been writing? No, of course not. I do have a fic idea that I haven't seen done before (doesn't mean it doesn't exist, though), but instead of brainstorming, plotting it out, etc. I'm reading Hunger Games fanfic. Thankfully I am one of the last posters this round...

Ya'll have to read Ricochet by [livejournal.com profile] girls_are_weird! It takes place when Katniss is 21 and too old to be reaped, and therefore cannot volunteer to take Prim's place. It's ultimately a Katniss/Peeta story, although it's pretty much like the books where they're hardly together. I honestly feel like I'm reading Suzanne Collins all over again. It's a WIP, up to the 30th chapter and updated fairly regularly from what I've seen.

Naturally that got me looking for HG fanfic on Ao3, and I've downloaded a couple to my Nook (love that I can do that!). I'm reading Stacked Odds right now, and then I also have (in no particular order):
+ The Ashes of District Twelve Series
+ I Long to Hear You
+ Beyond the Fence
+ Maybe It's Just Me
+ The Only Thing Stronger Than Fear
+ The Bough Unbowed

I don't think I've fully processed TVD season finale... )

What's everyone going to be watching over the summer? There are a few new shows I may check out like Motive, and possibly Mistresses (we'll see about that one), and Graceland. Then there are the usual's for me like True Blood and Dexter. I'm sure I'm missing some, but if there's anything really good I should be watching please let me know!

With all the ~badness of 4x04 I don't think many people focused on the most important aspect of the episode:

Under cut for those not in the know. )

On a much more serious note, I hope that everyone who was in the path of Hurricane Sandy is all right.  There was a lot of destruction in NY and NJ (as I'm sure you know).  I was very fortunate to only be without power.  Things are crazy up here right now.  People have lost their homes to water and fire.  People are standing on line for gas for HOURS.  It's honestly something I never thought I'd see happen in this area.  I'm so lucky to come out of this unscathed, and I hope all my f-listies affected are okay.

My response to the season premier of TVD:

Okay, not the whole episode - just everything Stefan/Elena. Like WTF did I just watch? I needed some vid-therapy, and I'm sure some of you could use some too.

Vids this-a-way )

And I've been reading lots and lots of fanfic!

+ Sideways by [livejournal.com profile] goldenusagi. Spike's characterization was pretty unique IMO.
+ Crystal by Vanilla
+ Falling by [livejournal.com profile] kallysten

Next I want to read the Unexpected verse by Passion4Spike.  Are there any other classic Spuffy fics that I should've read, but haven't yet?  I also have a few TVD fics that I've been meaning to read.
spuffy_noelle: (Spike quote deeply shamed)
Almost exactly one month since I've posted on here.  I AM DEEPLY SHAMED.  I don't even have a good reason for my absence, other than lack of fic/anything interesting to say.  I just quit my job on Monday.  I know it sounds crazy being that the economy sucks and I was lucky to even have a job, but it was a full-time babysitting gig, and it was ABSOLUTE torture!  The kid was out of control and literally abusing me, and I just could not put up with is another day!  It's getting seriously depressing that I can't find a steady job.  I have a Master's degree that's leading me NOWHERE, and I can't even seem to land an interview for anything outside of my field (education).  Knowing I'm not alone helps a little but at the same time I'm almost 27 with no signs of a career in my immediate future and it's SCARY!

Switching gears here - I was watching the season finale of TVD (yes, AGAIN!) and I had a question.  When Tyler and Caroline say goodbye before he "dies" is Klaus already in Tyler's body?  Because at that point we've seen Klaus staked, and Rebekah is almost already back in Mystic Falls.  And Tyler telling Caroline she'll have a "beautiful life" just sounds Klaus-y to me.  Has this already been discussed?  (Probably - I'm always late to the party :( )

As for my lack of fic writing you may be asking what the heck else are you doing with your time on the internet?  Well [livejournal.com profile] whedonland is still consuming a lot of my time.  I'm so sad this is the last round, and I've only been involved once before!!  I just saw on my F-list that I missed submitting to a challenge that happened to be very time consuming.  Pretty annoyed about that, but oh well.  I'm also still up to my ears in fic I missed out on during my five years away from fandom.  I also seem to be rereading a lot of stuff I read in the past, and that I've read in the last year of being back.  Like The Secret of the Boy You Never Kissed by [livejournal.com profile] minxdelovely. Such a great story that I had to reread it when she started reposting it to her LJ.  I also caught up on Yours, William and it's sequel My Elizabeth by [livejournal.com profile] thepuddinhead.  Sad to see it come to an end, but really excited to see what she has in store for William and Buffy.  Right now I'm also reading Some Cold Lovin', Las Vegas Style by Bloodshedbaby.  Can't believe I haven't read all of BSB's work, but I definitely don't remember reading this before.  I also have her story Stranded waiting in the wings for when I finish.  As always I'd love some recs.  I'm definitely forgetting to mention other fics I've read in the last month, but these are in the forefront of my mind.  I really want to start [livejournal.com profile] rahirah's Barbverse, but I'm so intimidated by the size of it!  Also on that list is The Unexpected Universe series, so hopefully I'll be getting around to those soon.  

I want to get back into Out of Reach, and I've been working on a sequel to Lie to Me which is going to be very different from the first one.  The problem is I have to many freaking plot bunnies running around in my head that it's hard to focus on just one at a time.  I'm trying to write the sequel to Lie to Me in parts as they come to me which is something I haven't done before.  We'll see how that works out, and hopefully I'll have something new to share soon!

Lastly, and WOW was that a long post!, I've started watching Veronica Mars.  I'm only four episodes in, but I'm enjoying it and hopefully Soapnet lets me finish the entirety of the show before it goes off the air!

Okay that's it.  How is everyone else's summer going?  Eljay seems to be pretty dead lately so I hope you're all enjoying!

Meme #1 - Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

Questions from ever_neutral: )


Meme #2 -
1. Leave a comment to this post!
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each. The characters can be from books, movies, or TV shows

My five favorite "D"s )

Of course I have to give you a rec!  I've been reading so much fanfic lately - I started a new job and have a ton of time to read on my commute AND at work.  

My Life Closed Twice by [livejournal.com profile] anaross
Summary: Post-Not Fade Away. Buffy seeks Spike's remains, but then finds him in the most unusal place.

Seriously loved this story!  Buffy really works hard to earn Spike's trust, but it's not frustrating.  Beautifully written and I'm sure everyone has already read it, but if you haven't GET ON IT!  Definitely worth a read or even a re-read.

spuffy_noelle: (Revenge - Emily drinking martini)

First off I want to thank [livejournal.com profile] tennyo_elf‚Äč for the virtual birthday gift!  That was so sweet, thank you sooooo much!!!

I hope everyone has a Happy Holiday, no matter what you celebrate.  For those of you, like me, who are celebrating Christmas tomorrow MERRY CHRISTMAS!!  I hope everyone gets what they want, and have a wonderful day with family and friends :D

In other news, I'm almost done with season two on my Vampire Diaries rewatch.  We have one more episode in season two before we start up season three, and then it'll be back!!  Very brief thoughts because it's late and I've had a bit of wine... Under a cut JIC

Bonnie can't use that much power without dying. I'll write her a gret eulogy. )
spuffy_noelle: (TVD - Salvatore Bros)
A friend of mine had never seen TVD.  I could not believe she was missing out on all that is Damon Salvatore, so we started watching season 1 last week.  I have the absolute worst memory!  I barely remember anything from the first season.  It's honestly pathetic.  We're almost done with the first season, and I'm putting the rest behind a cut in case there's anyone who doesn't want to be spoiled.  

I'm not blaming you, Damon. I've accepted the fact that you're a self-serving psychopath with no redeeming qualities. )
spuffy_noelle: (TVD - Caroline)
I've been sick for the past three days, and even though I'm on antibiotics I'm feeling worse not better.  

I watched TVD. Extremely lame opinions/spoilers behind the cut )
