IDEK where this came from. Maybe I'll post it on a fic site later.

Apologies for all Brit!speak mistakes and Avengers!mistakes.

Okay, I'm not sure who on my list watches/reads Doctor Who stuff, but:

Lyricwritesprose does the most amazing fic, yo. I started reading her stuff for the Rory (omg the Rory) and... I'll admit it, I'm an adamant anti-Doctor/Rose shipper, I thought that was one of the more ridiculous plotlines ever, but I adore it in these fics.


Of course, the latest one about River and the Doctor and falling is amazing, so.

Comment with a couple of characters and a song and I will drabble for you.

2011 ended with me driving 3 hours from the city I live/work in after being stuck at work for 2 hours overtime, to spend New Years Eve (or at least the very last bit of it) with my family. This was not a bad thing :D.
Today we spent at the San Francisco Exploratorium - this may be the most fun museum ever, excepting only (maybe) the Smithsonian. It is fueled by Science!
(Also you can play with bubbles. This wins always and ever.)

So, Yuletide Reveal!
The fic I was assigned:
Ponce de Leon's Folly - Grimm - This thing ate my brain for most of December, but the challenge was to have poor Nick face a Grimm creature that isn't European-mythology based.

The fic I did as a pinch-hit:
Long Family Tradition - Grimm - Eddie and Christmas and the awesomeness of Christmas (and Eddie).
bodldops: (Urahara)
It's about time I did this - there's some great stories written this year. So, starting from the top:

The Shop Around the Corner Alice (2009) - Hatter attempts to adjust to the routine of Alice's world. It is so sweet!

Written in the Stars Cowboys and Aliens - Even with his memories back, Jake still has nowhere to go. Basically, the ending the movie deserved.

Lullaby Dark Tower-Stephen King Eddie can't sleep, can't get comfortable on the beach or in his own skin, and can't really believe Roland said something that actually helps.
If Stephen King's new book only has a little of this, I'll be happy.

Go and Catch a Falling Star Lord Peter Wimsey / Doctor Who "No," Harriet Vane said, having given it some thought. "I don't suppose I do believe in spontaneous human combustion." OMG. The author needs to write More Of This.

Role Model Lord Peter Wimsey Viscount Saint-George never meant to make a role model out of his uncle, but somehow Peter wormed himself into Saint-George's conscience. This is... just perfect. So perfect.

Less Substantial Than Fairy Tales Nochnoy Dozor / Night Watch
Olga adjusts to life off the shelf and the modern world of the Night Watch.
OMG. I've linked this one before, it's the one written for me for Yuletide, and it's amazing, yo.

Clear Skies Star Wars X-wing Series A routine escort duty provides Wedge with some long-overdue relaxation. In theory. And this is why we love this series. :D

Midwinter Toast Wire In The Blood In the aftermath of a case, Tony and Carol share their first Christmas. Pure, unadulterated fluff. Title taken from the Thea Gilmore song of the same name. It's the fluff we wish the author would indulge in more often. Also, I love that the cat has a tag.

That's just my short list of favorites with a brief read-through. Now I need to go through and find the ones I missed. :D

Long time, no post. Of course, I'm doing so to post fic. Ficlet. >.> Whatevs.

Here's that 'first sentence of the month' meme thing!

January!: And it's a new year!
February: So, I've at least partially finished my big goal for today, which was 'revamp resume'
March: It's 3 in the morning, do you know where your vet student is?
April: So, vacation week was wonderful, I've got four clinics I'm getting replies from, I'm taking my state boards on Saturday...
May: Fic for [info]fightingthecage, from here.
July: Today I start my new job yay!
August: Woke up inexplicably cranky this morning.
September: I actually got up early and worked out this morning.
October: Alright, it's my weekend, so I've a list of things I need to do today if I want to go hiking tomorrow (see me being all adultish and whatnot?)
November: a) I've started NaNoWriMo.
December: Re: Trans-Siberian Orchestra:

All in all, actually, it's been a rather cheerful year.

In other news, we spent quite a lot of today up in a gorgeously snowy Yosemite. Pics will go up probably tomorrow, but... seriously people. Gorgeous. And the falls are flowing again! And the deer really really don't give a damn about the tourists.

EDIT: And I can reveal Yuletide now! My donation for my year 1 is: Before the Storm, a Sir Percy Blakeney/Scarlet Pimpernel fic which tragically has no chappeu-bras (despite being quite bemused by them) and in which, somehow, I miss-spelled M. Chauvelin's name persistently.

*boggles, mildly*

Someone explain [ profile] yuletide for me? I... got lost. ... Repeatedly.

bodldops: (Default)
Fic for [ profile] fightingthecage, from here. Requests are, as always, still open.

Humans are so difficult )

And, because I'm still low on things to do, another fic:
"Ignorance is not stupidity, but it might as well be"
For [ profile] moofoot, who wanted Star Wars :D

As if filling the open slot wasn't hard enough )
bodldops: (Urahara)
Meme, stolen from [ profile] fightingthecage:

Choose one or two or however many and a character/pairing and I'll try and write something for it. You can also ask for original though, um, my original characters tend to suck hardcore.

1) we would all be fools to pray for justice
2) great charity, bad tactics
3) a place beyond fear
4) prayer is a dangerous business
5) trying to build a tower out of custard
6) I will not fail death
7) all things out of season
8) lit like a burning city
9) now explain why you glow in the dark
10) expect to be valued accordingly
11) such a natural, normal lethality
12) choose good actions without good knowledge
13) the confusion of mind you dub honor
14) you were born to be betrayed
15) how long have I been walking down this road?
16) any man can be kind when he is comfortable
17) I've seen him cheat himself
18) these prizes are for living men
19) in desperation, anything becomes possible
20) I'd storm heaven for you, if I knew where it was
21) ignorance is not stupidity, but it might as well be
22) with the right to rule came the duty to protect
23) they will be vastly unlucky in their children
24) but he quit just an hour too soon
25) matter remembered itself so very clearly
26) the structure of her nose alone
27) all the words in all the languages of the world that ever were or will be
28) like trying to weave a box of shadows in which to carry water
29) time and scale, both altered out of reckoning
30) even your darkness shall be treasured then

Fandoms: Star Wars, Star Trek (Original, TNG, after that things will get dodgy), Lord of the Rings (ask for obscure elves and I'll make faces at you), Doctor Who, Torchwood, Knight Rider, Castle, Bleach, anything else you think I might know.

One of the most hilarious things seen today: Adult Sparkle!pire clothing. Seriously, I cracked up in the store. For the record, Sparkle!pires can not be asked for in above meme, because I haven't read the book. I don't think I could take it.
bodldops: (Urahara)
In writing this, I want to know why Torchwood has never visited the two (TWO??) castles in the Cardiff area. C'mon guys.

Another Torchwood Crossover )
bodldops: (Urahara)
In which Lynne's ficlet suggestions might actually turn into something larger )

In other news, I got out at 5:30pm tonight, so I got a panini, and watched some Foyles War, and am now going to sleep, which is awesome. :D

Edit: Found a clip of David Tennant on Foyles War. Must resist urge to write a fic as to how that could be the Doctor. No brain. Bad brain. Shh.

So I don't forget it later:

[ profile] tardis_bigbang

Signups are in September, it looks like, though they haven't set it up yet.

In other news, Martha the Wondercat will be getting a free ultrasound exam tomorrow (by yours truly). Early guess is that she'll hate it horribly and sulk at me all weekend. Oh well.

Also, Coldplay confuses Martha mightily. She looks like she's just been confronted with a swarm of flies to chase.

So, latest minor!crisis on the horizon: The driver's side window on Bessie the Car is performing at the same level of malfunction as the passenger side window. In that when I lowered the window to give money to the toll guy as I drove back up to Davis, the window refused to go back up in a normal position. I had to pull off at the next exit (after going over the Benicia bridge with my window down, so much unfun) and push said window back into submission. Of course, I'd been reading Stephen King's Dark Tower series all day, so sitting at a deserted stop sign in the middle of freaking no where wasn't much fun either.

Window is now back in place, but you better believe it's not going back down until someone who knows a whole hell of a lot more about cars than I do (which is roughly 90% of the US population) has a look at Bessie and possibly beats her into submission.

So I watched the Knight Rider movie again, because what one needs to fix a bad drive is a movie about a supercar, yup. And by KR movie, I mean the 2008 one, not the earlier one of horrificness where they freaking killed Devon and took KITT out of his cool TransAm. Mrr.

Second week of the shelter med rotation starts tomorrow, with a day spent with the resident answering already answered questions again. And rounds. This means I'll probably be online all day. I'll probably take another stab at that fic prompts list, but if anyone wants to give me more, they're totally welcome. :D Anyway, I'll be at ARF in Walnut Creek on Tuesday and Wednesday, the SPCA in SacTown on Thursday, and taking a field trip with the whole crew to Oakland on Friday. Oh, we're supposed to get a second student on the service tomorrow, so that ought to be interesting. Or something? La.

Saw some Equestrian eventing today (Olympics) and: EEEE PRETTY PRETTY HORSES. Also, much flailing at that last horse the Americans were riding. Silly pony, go over the jumps!

But mostly pretty pretty ponies EEEEE!

Oh, Sis and I caught 'Runaway Bride' on BBCA and... um. What is with the really really bad editing? They cut out a good chunk of important dialogue - Donna re: Rose trusting the Doctor in the car chase, Donna getting the Doctor to stop under the Thames... and there was another, but I can't remember it just now. But... important scenes! Also, there needs to be fic reconciling how they wrote Donna in 'Runaway Bride' with how she is in the rest of the series.
Oh! They cut out the scene where she refuses to go with him! WHUT?
Though, I am glad they added Grandpa when she rejoined the show. Grandpa is made of awesome, and was missed in 'Runaway Bride'. Must write fic to explain why he wasn't there.

Annnd I should be in bed. *flees*

Glorfindel as a Doctor Who companion!

For [ profile] varadia, who provides the crack as always.
This Won't Work )
bodldops: (cute kitten)
So, I am, as of this very moment:
1) Working (intermittently, obviously) on questions asked of the shelter med group.
2) Listening to the resident's ABBA CD.
3) Getting mocked for my only 'overseas' trip being to England.
4) Begging for drabble requests. C'mon guys, give me a break from questions about ringworm and bleach solutions. I'll give a stab at any canon I'm vaguely familiar with, but you'll get better results if it's one I know well (LotR, Star Wars, Star Trek, DW, so on and so forth).
bodldops: (cute kitten)
I am weak.

The Other Children of Time.

Because there's no way out of all of the companions only five would constitute 'all of the Doctor's companions'. *SULKS AT RTD* Or even seven, counting Mickey and Jackie. Or eight, if one really has to count the ex-Prime Minister. *eyeroll* That was a stretch, RTD.

1) How's this for fund mis-management: Vet school fees are higher than ever, they're blaming the poor economy and the fact we have very little Federal funding...
But there are guys downstairs putting in a new chandelier. By that famous glass-blower guy. Who's name I can't remember, of course, but he just had (or still has?) an exhibit at a SF museum, really gorgeous (high priced) stuff, he has only one eye... c'mon, someone must know who I'm talking about. Anyway. Big expensive art work for the starving students. *facepalm* Thanks ever so much, UCD. How about a free lunch plan instead? Or. You know. A decrease in tuition?

2) So, my grandparents on my mom's side aren't coming to my graduation. I... can't say I'm surprised. I wish I was. Meh.

3) There's a fic (and I need to find the link, for lo, it is awesome) that fixes the finale. Especially that last bit that breaks my heart. Now, if a fic writer can do it within weeks of the finale airing, surely Moffet can fix this mess. C'mon, don't let me down. You even have two years in which to do it.

4) Chapter 4 of my fic is up. :D Linkage to come when I'm on my home computer. And I'm kind of loving's traffic mapper thing. 'Cause knowing I have people reading this fic in Ireland and Italy and such is entirely too happy-making.
