1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me!"
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will post the answers to the questions (and the questions themselves) on your blog or journal.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions. And thus the endless cycle of the meme goes on and on and on...

In other news... Mrs. F said something totally epic today.
"You can mess with me - but leave my kid out of it."

EPIC WIN. It's so badass. ;]
lily_winterwood: (me and mrs. f heart)

Got another awesomesauce email from Mrs. F! *happy dance* There were some interesting links in there; I thought some people might like to take a gander at them. :P

Pure prevention is a campaign to raise awareness about how our environment might lead to breast cancer. There's some interesting stuff in there about how our makeup and food and stuff could lead to the Laura Roslin Melancholy Situation if we don't choose the right ones. Wonder if Madame President knew?

Camaron Ochs is Mrs. F's niece! She is a pretty darn good singer and there are clips on her site. It would be soooo epic if Mrs. F asked her to do a cover of "All Along The Watchtower"... folk style, lol.

Anyhoo... Mrs. F might be getting that Twitter any day now. :D
lily_winterwood: (battlestar twilightica bsg)

Here are ten (general) fandom pet peeves of mine.
  1. Vampires popping up in stories they should stay away from. Not just those sparkly guys from Twilight, but ALL types of vampires infiltrating ALL fandoms. Seriously? Was it necessary to make Laura fall in love with Edward frakking Cullen?
  2. Mary Sues. Evilest of all evil character types. I hate it when a character can be pretty and smart and talented and OMGSPESHUL at the same time. I hate it when a character gets his/her way for no reason whatsoever. Especially when the whole story is just said character getting their way after way after way. There's no plot.
  3. DOM/sub relationship dynamics in a fic using a pairing with an equal sharing of power. The characters are most likely Out of Character. I especially hate Wimp!Laura and Evil!Bill. Where in all of BSG did you see Laura being a sniveling weakling? That's Gaius Baltar's schtick, kay? So stop frakking with Laura and Bill's characters like that.
  4. Smushed ship names. There are some that I can stand/like, but on the whole, NO NO NO. "Adamalin" sounds like a drug. "Rodama" sounds like a fantasy character. "Adoslin" sounds like Hitler gone wrong (or at least wronger than he already was). Nuff said? Nuff said.
  5. "R/R PLZ NO FLAMEZ!!11!!!" Oh, shut up, Suethor. There has never been a goodfic writer who put this in their summary. It detracts from the actual summary and is basically a shout-out to the crowd: "I SERIOUSLY SUCK AT WRITING BUT IF YOU READ THIS SHIT DON'T YOU DARE CALL ME AN ASSHAT OR I WILL SIC MY INTERNET LAWYERS ON YOU!1!!!!"
  6. Going with that train of thought - people who say they welcome constructive criticism but flip out at any criticism offered. Seriously? You just told us you want to make your story better but when we give you tips you consider that a blow to your already fragile ego? We're not trying to persecute you or anything; we're frakking trying to help.
  7. Crazy ubershippers who basically declare that their ship is Teh Holy and all other ships can go to hell. Gaius F. Baltar, I don't frakking care. I know that Adama/Roslin is cute and Canon and stuff, but that's not grounds to denounce Roslin/Baltar.
  8. Fics in the vein of "Celebrian", where the women are sexually degraded and molested and the guys all have freaking huge penises. Uh, no thank you. I'll go and read something that won't make me want to go after you and castrate you with my bare hands, kay?
  9. Thanksgiving/Fourth of July in England/Middle-earth/Narnia/Galactica. Even IF I do live in the US and I have a sense of patriotism, I think this is utterly ridiculous and Canon-shattering. The US is not everywhere and there are people who don't celebrate those holidays. (le gasp!)
  10. People taking one character and mushing it with another and calling the result an original character. Ever heard of Sonichu? No? Good. He's the brainchild of an autistic 25-year-old man-child who draws like he's in kindergarten and videotapes himself having sex with a blow-up doll and putting it on YouTube. Autism and all other disabilities do not waive asshattery. I've got flisters with bipolar disorder who write the best fics ever. Anyhow, back to the main peeve. Sonichu is a supposed Original Character and guess who the inspirations are? Sonic and Pikachu. Here, have a barf bag.

So there are some of my pet peeves. I know, I must be such an evil person who can't understand the meaning of free speech. Well, this is free speech, too.

Boredom hath struck again! :D So I've created some doodles.

a picture is worth a thousand words )




If anyone else wants a doodle, feel free to ask. :]

lily_winterwood: (cuter than tinkerbell animated)
I'm bored. So here is the original Stickynote Doodles and a drawing of some of Mary's characters.

Gaius F. Baltar, I LOVE THE SEASON FOUR BSG SOUNDTRACK. :DDDDDDDD

Also, can someone direct me to the latest Closer episode? I want to see it. :] I hear that Mary is epic in it, but since when was she not?

In the meantime...
GO TEAM COLONIAL ONE! WE ARE AWESOME!

I'm all for making epic siggy banners. Except I need the time. ;D

Isn't it pretty? My only pet peeve is that there's no navigational strip and if there was, it would block the prettyful image. Bleh. It took me a while and several modifications using the CSS Tutorial from [livejournal.com profile] mintyapple , where I got the basics for the layout. In fact, this layout is a mirror to my new Twitter layout - the background is essentially the same. :D

I might make a header someday. :] But I've changed the public access banner so that it wasn't so big.
lily_winterwood: (happy happy joy joy bsg)
I'm BACK! What did I miss? ;]

Camp was... okay, I guess. Great food, frendly people, but terrible weather! And the mosquitos are evil! Evil, I say. Grrrrrrrrr, evol mosquitoes of evollllll.

Hum... I'm missing Mrs. F again. Tried to induce the Gaius Baltar Complex, but it's not working. :[


Another thing... I'm thinking about changing my journal header and layout. I've changed my layout and I'm thinking of getting another header. Any ideas?
lily_winterwood: (Default)
[info]twelvecolonies, a new BSG interactive comm (is it a game? I don't know). Epicness shall ensue as we crazy BSG fans try to gain points by different challenges. Like whedonland, only BSG themed. :D

if you apply, tell them Lily sent you. ;]
lily_winterwood: (headdesk bsg)


As everyone and their dog has heard by now, Mary McDonnell didn't get an Emmy.

SERIOUSLY, PEOPLE? HOW CAN YOU DENY HER AN EMMY?!?!

The world is made of epic fail today.

But at least BSG got something. Even if it's all technical and the actors never got their due, which is fucking unfair considering their epic awesomeness and acting skillz.

And how the hell did Blondie (aka Kyra Sedgewick) beat Mary this time around?!?! THIS IS INJUSTICE. Mary had better kick Blondie's ass in the next Closer ep like she did last time. ARGH.

*gets drunk on root beer*
lily_winterwood: (you call this coffee garfield)

Welcome to my lj, my newfound buddies[info]own_the_sky (*bows to thy epic icon-making skillz*) and[info]outintherain! Hope you've got your seatbelts fastened; it's going to be an insanely bumpy ride. :D

And for my other flisters, it's going to be the same insanely bumpy ride you've all undertaken so many times before. Heh.

I've been reading BagEnders - for all you psycho LotR fans who don't mind crackfic, GO READ IT. It'll make you double over laughing. Seriously. What's not to love about the Fellowship in the houseshare from hell? Kinda makes me want to write a drabble of life on Earth v.2, with immortal BSG characters all stuck in the same hous. Starring Colonel Tigh as Gandalf, Adama and Roslin as Aragorn and Legolas (kinda shows you how slashy BagEnders got), Starbuck and Leemo as Merry and Pippin (ditto), Billy as Boromir, Chief as Gimli, and I guess Gaius as Frodo, suffering from Post-Tool Of God Syndrome and still seeing Head!Six all over the place as he tries to cook dinner and act all housewifey over everyone else.

I'd totally see them reminescing over dinner about how we've progressed/recessed, complete with stories about Adama being in the US navy as an Admiral, how they all fought in the Civil War except for Roslin, who went to live with the Sioux/Comanche (total Dances With Wolves reference there), how, before that, how Gaius made a total fool of himself in Ancient Rome... :P

Anyways, I'm going to cut off my rambling. Why?

Cause I'm going CAMPING. Again. In the friggin' desert. There's no sense of temperature in this, is there?

Of course, there probably won't be intrawebz, so I'll be gone for the weekend starting Friday afternoon. I think.

But Friday's the seventeenth, so...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY (in advance), MRS. F!
(and a happy belated birthday to [info]julyflame and [info]lil_ani and everyone else on my flist who had a birthday recently!)

I hope every single one of you birthday kids (and kids-at-heart) have a frakking awesome day! Don't eat too much cake! I ate too much ice-cream cake at my cousin's b-day party and I've renewed my hatred for whipped frosting. Especially the awful pale green sort that looks fit for Cake Wrecks. And speaking of wrecked cakes, hope you didn't have to send a photo of your cake over to that awesome blog because someone mispelled your name/mispelled "happy birthday"/had bad grammar/inappropriately decorated the cake/used incorrectly placed quotation marks/created a fugly cupcake cake (ptooey!) with four-inch thick frosting/etc.

Many happy returns! If you have requests for a sticky note doodle, don't hesitate to ask. :]
(confound it, where did I put the Doc Cottle one that I drew three months ago?)

THANK YOU.

Anyways. The lack of grammar! It hurts our eyes, Precious! The corniness! AAAAAAAUGH I CAN'T BELIEVE WHAT I'M WRITING!!!

I need therapy. Now, please.

Anyways, in happier news! I made some Cylon Rave icons for icedteainthebag. They're not brilliant, but I was bored.

lily_winterwood: (sparkle motion twilight)
[Error: unknown template qotd]There was this one time when the power went out right when I was typing up a report for school. So the computer turned off and the lights turned off and I was all like "WTF?!?!?!"

And then I went up and down the streets and it turns out that the entire neighborhood was out of power. We lit a bunch of candles and I had to do my other assignments by candlelight. Worst. Light. Source. Ever. How the hell did people do their homework back then with these things?

I did make a friend that day, and we did get our power back eventually. Like, two hours later. :P Turns out some little old lady accidentally drove her car into one of the poles or something.
lily_winterwood: (all of this has happened before bsg)

Ganked from [profile] wicked_visions .
Write 10 different categories of fic, each in 10 words or less.
fics under the cut )
lily_winterwood: (where's the PPC bsg)

The Badfic Game's going along fine. :P Relatively. My OFU story (apologies to[info]misscam for mutilating OFUM) got all screwed up on the site.

Now I need to go drown myself in Bleeprin for writing a slash fic between my PPC Agent Eledhwen and my PPC Scientist Lori.
(Sorry, Mrs. F.)

I mean, seriously?!?!


Discovering Love
Genre: Romance, Rating: R, Summary: Lori Starrett vowed to never love another. But what happens when she meets Eledhwen Elerossiel? R&R please. No flames.

 

cut to spare your eyeballs )

*cough cough* Reasons why it’s badfic:

Eledhwen is not a lesbian. Lori is also not bisexual. Lori DID meet Bill. Lori fangirled Legolas, but they were never in a relationship. Lori is not the best scientist in HQ. There is way too much urple prose. Where is the fucking plot? Eledhwen is not one to fall in love/get a crush on someone so fast; she’s immortal for frak’s sake, she’s got plenty of time to do so. It took two years for the real Lori and Jennifer (writer of Eledhwen) to discover their (platonic or otherwise) love for each other, so there’s a total screwing with time here. Lori is not an emo kid; she is usually relatively cheerful and outgoing. Eledhwen’s elven grace would never let her collide with someone. What would Christianne and Bill Fallis say to this? Eledhwen’s style of speech is formal with occasional modern sayings (thanks to OFUM), not poetic archaic speech. Lori does not wear impractical clothes like long green dresses every day. She got recruited for being a zoology major, not a healer.

There will be more reasons… as this thing goes on.

So I'm also thinking of doing something so twisted, it'll make people glad that I normally don't write shit like this. It involves Eledhwen (the apparently Amazing Homosexual Elf :P) killing her partner because her partner, out of JELLUSY, kill Lori. And then the Flowers That Be end up deciding to let her go to the Galactica-verse and getting married to Laura Roslin before Bill. The idea makes me cringe, but yeah.

lily_winterwood: (headdesk bsg)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Do you really have to ask? Roslin/Adama all the way!
lily_winterwood: (mary envelope screening bsg)

and I still freaking miss Mrs. F. :[

Mrs. F, wherever you are, speak to me!!! I need to know if you're still out there or if the past two years (the best years of my childhood as far as I'm concerned) have just been a strange dream that ended after my time at our school ended. Or if likecut for Daybreak spoilerphobes ) the moment I walked away.

At least you haven't magically disappeared from my yearbook and drawings... that would be depressing.
