Take the first line of the first post from each month, and that's your year in review.

Skipping monthly writing goals posts.

January: By canon, then order of publication. [fic master list for 2015]

February: That feeling when the research paper you're reading has the exact info you need in the appendix, and the appendix isn't included in the online version?

March: I posted a mini-rant on this subject to Twitter last month, but apparently I decided that wasn't sufficient.

April: Written for the 2016 Wintersend Exchange (a lady-centric fanwork exchange for Dragon Age).

May: Today, it was announced that [community profile] ladybusiness is up for a 2016 Hugo Award in the Best Fanzine category.

June: Over a week without posting, oops.

July: Thanks to everyone for your kind words and condolences on the loss of Lexi.

August: Thanks to the recommendations and enthusiasms of MANY PEOPLE (you know who you are), I took the plunge and started watching Critical Role, a Twitch show in which a group of American voice actors play an ongoing Dungeons & Dragons campaign.

September: For our special celebration of Kate Elliott and her books, I wrote a review of her most recent, Poisoned Blade.

October: I rarely write my take on scenes that are probably going to happen soon in canon, but this bunny wouldn't leave me alone.

November: To think that I lived to see the Chicago Cubs -- perennial underdogs to the point that sci-fi authors often use their losing ways as a punchline or a sign that you're in an alternate universe -- win a World Series.

December: For the first time in 13 years. [In reference to my new glasses.]

I was tagged on Tumblr by [personal profile] heavenscalyx for the 11 questions meme. I've done this a number of times, but never on DW -- it seems to mostly be a Tumblr meme. But since I prefer to home longer posts on DW, I'm transporting it here, and maybe it'll catch on. :)

Rules: 1. Always repost the rules 
2. Answer the 11 random questions posted for you
 3. Create 11 new ones and tag 11 people 
4. Let the person who tagged you know that you answered

Tagging [personal profile] lassarina, [personal profile] umadoshi, [personal profile] alias_sqbr, [personal profile] sathari, [personal profile] spindizzy, [personal profile] forestofglory and [livejournal.com profile] brennacedria -- optional as always, and if anyone else wants to answer, feel free!

My answers:

1. Do you have a ghost story that happened to you or one of your family? Sadly not, nothing like this in my personal history or family lore.

The rest behind the cut )

Take the first line of the first post from each month, and that's your year in review.

I haven't seen anyone else do this yet, but I've done it for so many years now I can't imagine skipping it. Maybe I'll set the trend this time. ;) Skipping monthly writing goals posts and similar.

January: [personal profile] yohjideranged asked me about the character types I like to write.

February: It's coming! ["It" being the Dragon Age Kiss battle.]

March: Have some short fics I haven't crossposted here yet, including my stories for this year's Kiss Battles and some Tumblr memes.

April: I've been thinking for awhile that I wanted to rewatch the MCU, see where it hangs together as a single story -- and where it falls apart.

May: I don't want to write a long post getting out all my various feelings about the new Avengers movie at this juncture, because I'm going on [tumblr.com profile] fangirlhappyhour to chat about it, and I want my thoughts to stay fresh, not get hashed out in advance.

June: Had a fantastic weekend at the mothership [Bryn Mawr], reconnecting with old dear friends, some of whom I hadn't seen in a very long time, as well as with people who I didn't know that well in school.

July: We are back from our travels [the cruise/Amsterdam trip]!

August: Just a cold, but a bad enough one that I missed three days of work and didn't have energy for much beyond lounging around the house.

September: I presume everyone who follows such things knows about the final DA:I DLC coming out next week, Trespasser. [The post was actually about Jaws of Hakkon, and re-reading it got me excited all over again. Maybe I should fire up DA:I today and send my Trevelyan through it.]

October: Don't want to look at writing goals. Do not want.

November: As threatened in my writing goals post for this month, I am taking prompts for journal post topics.

December: Despite having written like, one fic the last time I took a [community profile] genprompt_bingo card, I decided to snag another one.

This feels pretty meta to me, somehow. Next year, I resolve to write about more things, and write less about writing about things.

OTP meme

Nov. 19th, 2015 11:29 pm
owlmoose: (ffx2 - paine/nooj official art)
Totally punting on writing a real post again because concert week. Instead, have a meme, for which I was tagged (many moons ago) by [tumblr.com profile] faejilly, in which you list 10 OTPs.

1. Paine/Nooj (Final Fantasy X-2)
2. (Al-Cid/)Ashe/Balthier (Final Fantasy XII)
3. Alistair/Warden (Dragon Age)
4. Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers (Marvel)
5. Parker/Hardison(/Eliot Spencer) (Leverage)
6. Olivia Dunham/Peter Bishop (Fringe)
7. Susan Ivanova/Marcus Cole (Babylon 5)
8. Beverly Crusher/Jean-Luc Picard (Star Trek)
9. Leslie Knope/Ben Wyatt (Parks & Recreation)
10. Kara Zor-El Danvers/James Olson (Supergirl)

That last one is new, of course. I have no idea whether it has precedent in any other DC canon, but I really don't care, because my love for them is quickly approaching critical levels. They are just soooooo freaking adorable.

I'm not going to tag anyone here (though I probably will on Tumblr), but if anyone feels like playing, have at it!
owlmoose: (book - key)
(And so the experiment in regular Tumblr cross-posting begins. I'm not going to lie; I'm pretty excited. I hope it works out!)

[tumblr.com profile] maybethings tagged me in a first lines meme, which as far as I can tell is posting 10 first lines from things I've written. Without context, have some first lines:

  1. The first thing Steve knew, after the cold and the dark and the pain like being slammed into a brick wall, was the familiar cadence of a ballgame.

  2. It had seemed inappropriate to hold any sort of wedding festivities on the actual nuptial day of the King and Queen of Ferelden, given that the Blight had ended not even a week before, and so a formal ceremony was called three months later, complete with foreign dignitaries, a feast, and dancing.

  3. Alistair woke in the dead of night -- jolting upright, writhing body twisted in soaked sheets -- and knew it was time.

  4. "I still don’t understand why you forgave me, but I’m grateful that you did."

  5. Once upon a time, there was a young summoner named Yuna.

  6. Carlos snaps his head toward the radio and stops breathing.

  7. The entrance of the church is dark and quiet, a stark contrast to the bright sunshine just outside, to the sounds of the street now muffled by the heavy wooden door.

  8. "Hey Tasha, it's Clint, and it's Day 47 of watching a bunker in the middle of nowhere."

  9. ""They say that Princess Ashelia died of grief."

  10. The newly minted Judge stood before Drace's desk, his arms stiff at his sides, his face hidden beneath a black helm.

  11. I don't think I'll tag anyone here, just invite anyone who wants to do it to give it a try. It's a worthwhile exercise, this little jog down fic memory lane. :)

Age Meme

Sep. 23rd, 2015 11:38 pm
owlmoose: (avengers - a little help)
The Rules: you comment saying you want to do the meme, I give you an age (give me a maximum, either your current age or some younger age, as you prefer), and you fill out the meme questions with what applied to you back then, and what applies to you now. [personal profile] yohjideranged gave me Age 22, which covers the last few months of college and most of the first year out (March 1995 - March 1996).

I lived in:
Then:This was a year of changes. I started out in a dorm room, a suite shared with my friend A, at Bryn Mawr College. After graduation, I moved in with my parents in Santa Rosa, CA for the summer, then into a house with my then-boyfriend and a friend and co-worker of his, in Palo Alto. That housing situation was a disaster, though, and within a couple of months we'd left the co-worker and moved to Mountain View with our friend E, whom we barely knew at that point. Fortunately, it worked out well, and he's still one of my closest friends.
Now: San Francisco, with my husband. We've been in the same place since 2000 and have no current plans to move.

I drove:
Then: I didn't have a car of my own until 1997. No car at all in college, when I lived with my folks I most often drove my dad's '89 Ford Tempo, and after moving out I sometimes drove my boyfriend's '86 Toyota Camry.
Now: A 2009 Honda Fit that was a gift from my mother-in-law when she no longer needed a second car.

I was in a relationship with:
Then: My college boyfriend G -- we started dating that September (after meeting on an airplane) and were together for almost four years. During that year, we were fairly solid. The cracks starting showing a couple of years later, when I went to grad school.
Now: T, my husband. Together going on 17 years; our 11th wedding anniversary is on Saturday.

I feared:
Then: Being broke, never finding a good job, losing touch with my close circle of college friends.
Now: Never finding a good job (this may be the thing that has changed least), serious health problems.

I worked at:
Then: First a college student, and also a student worker at the college library. After graduation, I took back my regular summer job at the local county fair until I stumbled into a secretarial job at a small architecture firm. It was kind of a lousy job, but it got me out of my parents' house and convinced me that library school was my true calling.
Now: Currently, part-time temporary at a social science research organization. There are moves to possibly make it more permanent, which I will talk about when I'm more sure it's gong to happen. It's a pretty good place to work, if not quite the career path job I was wanting.

I wanted to be:
Then: Done with school, in a stable relationship, someone who knew what they wanted out of life.
Now: An academic librarian, but that doesn't seem to be in the cards in the short term. A good partner, a good friend, more healthy, a better writer.
owlmoose: (Default)
I've seen a few people do this, but most recently ganked from [personal profile] umadoshi. I suppose it's appropriate to do a catch-up meme a week after everyone else.

So what have you been up to? / Major life changes? Same old same old?

I've been working a part-time temporary job that might become more permanent soon, but that's by no means a done deal. So I'd rather not talk about that publicly yet. Otherwise I feel like it's pretty much situation normal.

What fandom are you in/do you spend most of your time in?

Either Dragon Age or MCU, depending on the day. I haven't been participating much, though, largely because I haven't readjusted to having a job outside the house and with regular hours, and I can't really be on social media while I'm there. Also I have my irritations with both fandoms, in terms of recent content and of the communities, so it's feeling less like happy fun squee times than I want it to be.

Where do you hang out online?

If I'm being honest, I have to say Flight Rising. Breeding and dominance battles continue to hold my attention, and although the site also has its dramas, I'm way less personally invested than I am in my other fandoms. My frustrations with Tumblr as a community and as a platform continue to grow, and I'm taking a semi-hiatus from it, starting tomorrow, mostly to avoid Trespasser spoilers, but in truth I'm running on queue half the time lately anyway.

I do want to post more here, though. More books reviews? (I got some enthusiasm for that suggestion the other day, so thanks for that!) More meta in general? Respond to things on Tumblr here, where we might actually be able to have conversation about them? I guess we'll see. I've also been on Twitter more lately, because it's easier to pop in from my phone while I'm at work.

What are you reading?

I'm in the middle of two books right now: "The End of All Things" by John Scalzi, and "A Red-Rose Chain" by Seanan McGuire. End of All Things is a collection of four novellas, and I'd read the first three when I picked up Red-Rose Chain at McGuire's Borderlands event on Saturday (which was very fun!). Since I was at a good stopping point with the Scalzi, I started reading the McGuire while I was there, and now I want to finish it. So I'll probably do that, then get back to the Scalzi, then begin on the mountain of exciting books that have come out in the last two months (Court of Fives, The Fifth Season, House of Shattered Wings...).

What are you watching?

My main TV project is a rewatch of Star Trek: Voyager. At least, I'd thought it was a rewatch when I started, but almost nothing after the first season has been familiar. I'm positive I watched at least some episodes with Seven of Nine, though, because the reason I remember giving it up was because I got tired of it being the Seven of Nine show. I just finished Season Four, so maybe the part I did watch is coming up. Anyway, I'm enjoying it. It's not as uniformly good as DS9 or later TNG, but when it's good, it's very good, and I really like most of the characters (even Seven, better than I remembered).

We're also sort of slowly working on Sense8, and I've grown into a big fan of The Nightly Show and Last Week Tonight.

What are you making?

Not as much as I would like. I went back on Fangirl Happy Hour to talk about Ant-Man and the current state of the MCU! The episode was released today and can be found here. I have a couple of long projects going, most notably a Dragon Age: Inquisition Hawke/Fenris fix-it fic, but it wants to be an epic and I fear I've bitten off more than I can chew with it. We'll see if I can pull it together -- making enough progress to post it, or at least start posting, is my main writing goal for the month.

What are you squeeing about today?

Not today, exactly, but I already posted about how much I loved Jaws of Hakkon, one of the DA:I DLCs. I've moved on to playing Descent with my Cadash, and I have to admit it works better with a dwarf inquisitor. There's not a ton of unique content for her, but there's enough that I can appreciate the resonance. (No mention of the Hero of Ferelden's being a dwarf, though, not even when Malika asked Renn if he'd met her.) I'm about halfway down to the bottom. Hopefully it won't take too much longer, and then I can move on to Trespasser.

If you could rope old fandom friends into a new fandom, it would be.....

Is it wrong to say that I'd love to new people to get into Dragon Age and bring in fresh perspectives, in hopes of lightening the relentless negativity that I've been seeing since DA:I? I'm not saying that I don't want to ever see any criticism, ever -- there are plenty of valid critiques to make of the new game; I've made plenty of them myself. But it seems like the crits are all anyone ever talks about, and it's getting me down.

I should really watch/read/dive into _______ and then come talk to you about it!

Uprooted by Naomi Novik! OMG it was so good. I don't want to say any more because spoilers. Just go read it.

What else is on your mind?

Not a lot, really. Which is why I haven't posted so much here, I suppose. I need to get back in the habit of regular posting, if nothing else to help keep better track of myself. I keep saying that and not doing it, but that doesn't mean it isn't true.

Take the first line from the first post from each month, and that's your Year in Review.

Skipping locked and (in most cases) writing goal posts.

January: I spent last night just the way I like it, with a small group of friends, talking and laughing and eating, pretty much the perfect way to ring in the New Year for me.

February: Had a phone interview today, for a position I'd written off until I got a call last week. [Not only did I not get the job, I never even heard from them again. Bad form, interviewers.]

March: In contract to last years multi-week extravaganza, I had a nice low-key birthday today: vet appointment in the morning, quiet afternoon at home, dinner out with a few friends.

April: I have been waiting two years for this movie, and it did not disappoint. [The movie in question was Captain America 2.]

May: Because why not write ladies?

June: I skipped Round #2 of [community profile] genprompt_bingo because I had too many other things going on, but I decided I needed a nice collection of low-stress prompts right now.

July: Heh heh week without posting, oops.

August: So if you recall, back when I first joined WorldCon, I had all these grand plans about how I was going to talk about my Hugo reading, through both the nomination and voting process, and how those basically came to nothing.

September: I spent the last weekend of the month sick in bed with food poisoning, which pretty much tells you all you need to know about August.

October: So a week or so ago, I reblogged a post with a bunch of kissing-related prompts over on Tumblr.

November: Wind Flight won Dominance!!!

December: Spoilers through The Thing (as detailed in my previous post). [Context: "The Thing" is the plot mission that marks the end of Act One in DA:I.]
owlmoose: (quote - eliot hollow men)
I did this meme in January and really liked it. It looks like folks are doing it in December this year, and that sounds good to me.

The Meme:

Pick a topic, and on some day in December I will post something about that topic. It can be fandom-related or not. Pretty much anything you've ever seen me post about unlocked, or comment on in other venues, is fair game. If a topic is uncomfortable for me (too personal or potentially identifying) or simply something I know very little about (unfamiliar canon, say), I may ask you to make a second choice. If you want to request more than one topic (say, up to three), feel free, but if I get more than 25 or so requests I may pick and choose between them.

The List:

  • Photo essay with cats, requested by [personal profile] renay

  • Final Fantasy thoughts, particularly on IV, VII, IX, and XII (will probably be broken over a couple of posts), requested by [personal profile] sathari

  • "Favorite quests in Dragon Age Origins & II, why they struck you or stayed with you, and (of course) what choices your Wardens and Hawkes made," requested by [personal profile] ossobuco

  • Favorite fanfics, by myself and by others, requested by [personal profile] halberdier

  • My typical writing process (or "writing" process, depending), requested by [personal profile] wallwalker

  • Character types I like to write, requested by [personal profile] yohjideranged

  • Favorite foods to cook and favorite foods to go out and eat, requested by [personal profile] lassarina

  • Books and movies I'm most looking forward to in 2015, requested by [personal profile] umadoshi

  • Yours?

owlmoose: (book - key)
I got tagged to do this over on Tumblr, and I figured I'd carry it over here, too.

The rules: Post one sentence, with no context, from all of your WIP. Then tag five other people to do the same. Except I'm not going to tag anyone, but I would encourage everyone to do it. :) It's good for pulling things out of the cobwebs.

Here are mine, for fairly generous definitions of "in progress" and "one sentence". Some of you might recognize some of these.

  • The candles burned out, one by one, as Teagan waited, alone in the parlor.

  • Varric checked the map. “I don’t know why I’m even looking at this,” he said, crumpling it up and sticking it back in his pack.

  • "Miss Leandra?" he said, eyebrows half up, his Starkhaven accent sharp. "And where are you going, alone, at this hour?"

  • "You wanted to fly, right? Here’s your chance."

  • "Beautiful and deadly," said Penelo. "At least we don’t have to worry about darkspawn."

  • It was, in fact, a man Yuna had never seen before, with dark blond hair, a sharp nose, and a sort of machina weapon slung over his shoulder. And unless she was mistaken, very much alive.

  • "I will return with Jack Sparrow in chains, or not at all," Alice replied, making a brief, stiff curtsey.

Take the first line from the first post in each month, and that's your Year in Review. (Skipping monthly writing goals posts and similar.)

January: Dozenth time's the charm: I finally managed to complete a fic for the Chocobo Races!

February: Day Two: Describe your Warden's appearance.

March: Another day, another post about representation of women authors in best-of lists.

April: After a long off and on battle with cancer, Roger Ebert passed away today.

May: I'm going to see if I can take a Tumblr hiatus for a couple of days, in the interest of avoiding Iron Man 3 spoilers as it opens in the United States.

June: This began life as a fill for this year's DA Kiss Battle.

July: I just finished my third time through Dragon Age 2.

August: My story for the 2013 Dragon Age Reverse Big Bang, inspired by a Queen Anora fanmix.

September: Hey, who wants some old-school Paine/Nooj angst?

October: I finished the series yesterday. [The series in question was Fringe.]

November: I finished all my planned stories for Trope Bingo Round 2 -- one double-line bingo and one extra.

December: I swear, I don't mean to go a week without writing anything after the posting marathon of November is over.

Interesting. Very much focused on media and fandom activity. When did I stop writing about politics, random other topics of interest, my life? I will have to muse more about this later. (And maybe do this same exercise on my Tumblr, if I can get the archive there to cooperate. Update: I have done so. Still pretty fandom focused, although a little broader in scope. And a couple of life posts did manage to sneak in there. This will bear consideration, especially given one of my upcoming post prompts.)

Age meme

How this works: You comment, I give you an age (please tell me how old you currently are, since I don't necessarily know) and you fill out the meme questions with what applied to you back then, and now.

owlmoose: (otter)
Not ganked from anyone this year, it just felt like a good time to do it.

Take the first line from the first post of each month, and that's your Year in Review. (Skipping my monthly writing wrap-up posts.)

January: Welcome to 2012, everybody.

February: I gave in to the siren call of every single person on the Internet ever and watched both seasons of Sherlock, finishing up tonight.

March: Sorry to have been so absent lately.

April: As expected, FogCon has been great so far.

May: LJ added a spoiler tag that works in comments!

June: Whenever I go a week without posting, it feels wrong, like somehow I might cease to exist in this corner of the Internet if I don't interact with it often enough.

July: Jet lag, or something, is seriously kicking my ass the last couple of days, so I haven't had much brainpower to post about anything, including the rest of the trip and coming back.

August: I was home sick from work today, so I took the opportunity to download the demo for a game that's been getting some buzz on my Tumblr dashboard: Cinders.

September: Many moons ago, [personal profile] vieralynn wrote a very detailed character development interview that I snagged with the intention of writing up for my Aeducan.

October: Sleeping in on a Monday and then wandering down to Panera, instead of being up at the crack of dawn for the first day of a new academic quarter, has helped it sink in that I'm not actually having some weird long weekend, but am facing a new era of my life.

November: What better way to give myself an incentive to do more journaling than to meet more people here?

December: Things I have done this weekend: [a lot of awesome with Nay, Sev, and Ira].

This feels very meta, with a number of posts about how rarely I've been writing posts. I'm not surprised, though, given how much I've been posting at Tumblr instead. All part of the continuing process: what to post there, what to post here, how to keep myself active and connected with my journaling community even as the fandom action mostly moves elsewhere. Is it wrong that there's a tiny part of me that hopes the ongoing Tumblr redesigns that are making it more and more difficult to carry on real conversations there will drive people back into the arms of Dreamwidth? Probably.
owlmoose: (Default)
What better way to give myself an incentive to do more journaling than to meet more people here?

LiveJournal DreamWidth
friending meme

Why yes, there has been another epic fail on LiveJournal, why do you ask? The main thing is that they've disabled custom formatting for reading the friends list and introduced many other changes to make it more Tumblr-like. Once again, LJ is tweaking itself to be more like the flavor-of-the-month social networking service rather than concentrating on what makes it different, and once again I wonder why any of us are still there. I mean, I know why I'm still there -- fannish projects/communities that live on LJ, and enough friends who haven't yet moved -- but I wonder how much longer it will be worth the effort.

Anyway. Check out the meme, and if you do decide to make the switch, let me know so I can add you on the DW side. :)
owlmoose: (bunny)
Ganked from at least a couple of people by now. Bold the ones you have and use at least once a year, italicize the ones you have and don't use, underline the ones you use at least once a month, strike through the ones you have had but got rid of.

I wonder how many pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, blenders, deep fat fryers, egg boilers, melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes, cheese boards, cheese knives, crepe makers, electric woks, miniature salad spinners, griddle pans, jam funnels, pie funnels, meat thermometers, filleting knives, egg poachers, cake stands, garlic crushers, martini glasses, tea strainers, bamboo steamers, pizza stones, coffee grinders, milk frothers, piping bags, banana stands, fluted pastry wheels, tagine dishes, conical strainers, rice cookers, steam cookers, pressure cookers, slow cookers, spaetzle makers, cookie presses, gravy strainers, double boilers (bains marie), sukiyaki stoves, ice cream makers, fondue sets, healthy-grills, home smokers, tempura sets, tortilla presses, electric whisks, cherry stoners, sugar thermometers, food processors, stand mixers, mincers, bacon presses, bacon slicers, mouli mills, cake testers, pestle-and-mortars, gratin dishes, apple corers, mango stoners and sets of kebab skewers languish dustily at the back of the nation's cupboards.

When I first moved in with T, he was flabbergasted that I'd never used a rice cooker before. It's a staple of his life. The one we have it a hand-me-down from his parents that is older than he is -- literally, you can see it sitting on the kitchen counter in some of the photographs of his mom's baby shower. I think they got it as a wedding gift.

I'm surprised not to see waffle makers on this list. Or stick blenders.

I actually do want an ice cream maker. SE makes the best homemade ice cream and I am always jealous. And once I am unemployed I may need to reinvest in coffee making supplies. I suppose I could go back to tea, but I've gotten so invested in my morning latte.

Take the first line of the first post for each month, and that's your year in review.

January: This final monthly update for 2010 officially rounds out my best year of writing since 2006.

February: Go prompt! Go write! Go enjoy! Go go go! [This was a promo for the FF kiss battle.]

March: Yeah, yeah, yeah. We've heard this before. A "firm" publication date for A Dance with Dragons?

April: Copyright is the place where my interests as a fan and as a librarian are most likely to collide, so it's no surprise that I came out of the two talks on the subject I attended this afternoon energized and excited.

May: First, I am participating in the [community profile] newgameplus reversathon!

June: Got behind, so I'll get ahead a little bit today. [Referring to the "30 Days of Final Fantasy" meme.]

July: Even though I've been to New York City many times (I tried to sit down and count the other day, and found that I could not), I still discover new things every time I go.

August: The Porn Battle is on again, and there are many prompts working at my subconscious. [Surprisingly, this is the first post on the list that directly relates to Dragon Age.]

September: That went pretty well. [A monthly writing goals post.]

October: Finished my [community profile] newgameplus story with time to spare; phew.

November: This is something I've been meaning to do for awhile, and the demise of Google Reader as a sharing platform seems as good a time as any. [The list of "what social networking platforms KJ is on; I really ought to write a shorter version of that, make it a sticky, and update it regularly.]

December: Now that I've posted the first part of my Final Fantasy XII/Dragon Age crossover, I wanted to step back a little bit, think about the world I'm creating and how it's going to work.

Pretty accurate, I think. Skipped a couple of writing goals posts. I like doing this meme even when I haven't ganked it from anyone; it's a nice way to wrap up a year. Update: I just checked my archive, and I've done this meme every year since 2005. I guess that makes it officially a tradition...
