Hi!

I rarely use this journal anymore, or my dreamwidth either. I'm much more active on twitter. Unlocked, so follow me there! I talk about hockey, music, food and complain a lot.

To find all my fanworks in fandoms like hockey rpf, bandom and small fandoms, check out my ao3 page.

Transformative works policy:

Do whatever the hell you want. You don't have to inform me before or after, credit me, link me, anything. Just take it, and let it fly free. Credit is always appreciated but not required. This is for everything I have ever created. Just ask the author for repods, yeah?

Week in the life - two

Day two!

I am actually posting this a day late, because I was quite tired yesterday!

So, I got up and dressed, had toast for breakfast and went to my first race in nearly 2 years! It was a 10k run/walk or a 4k run. I decided on the 4k run because I felt kind of sick and didn't want to push myself. It was seriously crowded. They expected maybe 500 people, but there was over 1000! They ended up giving out pieces of paper with your race number on and one pin to stick it to you,  because there wasn't enough! I was no. 701! So we hung around waiting for the 10k-ers to get a head start, and off we were. I was unfortunately in the middle, and had planned to walk to warm up because I'd forgotten my gloves and got cold waiting, but instead I immediately started running so I could get out the crowds. Unfortunately, basically the first 1km was a giant hill, so I paced that, but was already ahead so no crowds :D

Along the way I took a few photos. I was trying to beat a record so I didn't want to stop often.


This is an old abandoned house on the route. All the windows are kicked in and the door rotting, but an Irish flag is still hanging from the window. You don't see flags on houses often here, so I stopped to take a picture.


My phone doesn't accurately capture the beauty of the mountain ahead. The sun was shining on it and the sky sure didn't seem that grey!

I finished the 4k in exactly 30 minutes. Not too shabby considering the hills. They were seriously like MMMMMM, up and down and up again. Got sandwiches, lucozade, cups of tea, rice krispy buns and a slice of apple pie before going home. Lazed around a bit at home, then had a shower and attempted yet again to do something with my hair. It failed.

Then I had my dinner, which I *did* take a picture of, but it has vanished. It was tomato soup, then grilled chicken, parsnip and carrot mash, and potatoes. Not hugely exciting, but healthy, so.

Spent the rest of the day reading, internetting, tidying up and watching old clips of 'Whose Line'. Such a good show! Then off to bed :)

Day 7

In your own space, share something non-fannish about yourself. A passion or a hobby or a talent, something that people might not know about you. We are more than just our fandoms. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Dear Lovely Podficcer
hawks: sticks in the air
letsgofriday
Hey there, dear brave soul who is to record something for me for #ITPE.

Thanks so much for doing this! I can't wait to listen to the wonderful piece and I hope you enjoy whatever you get from whoever, as well.

If it's on my pinboard, I love it and you can disregard any warnings about it.

I have a pile of fandoms, but unfortunately I don't love them all equally. Because of that, I'm going to lay my feelings on them out below the cut. This includes squicks and loves that are particular to this fandom. I might like them (squicks) elsewhere, however.

My fandoms (that I signed up with, anyway) are: Bandom*, Hockey*, Supernatural, Community, Inception, Sherlock*, X-Men: First Class, Firefly, AI8, One Direction, Actors RPF*, Merlin, Teen Wolf, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Doctor Who*, Torchwood and Suits!
(* means that these are fandoms with ~subfandoms, if you will.)

I know that seems really detailed, but better safe than sorry. However, this is just a guide line. It doesn't have to be followed explicitly.

Again, thank you so much! I hope you find a fic that you enjoy reading and you're proud of the result.

<3333

Have I said I love the festive season?

Because I do.



Help spread the word on podfic (you don't need to be a podficcer to join in!).
[community profile] pod_aware || [community profile] pod_aware

Such fun! I sadly didn't participate last year as I was totally swamped, but this year I totally will. The subjects look very interesting too.




[community profile] theatripod is taking place! Sadly, I don't think it's something for me, because I SUCK at deadlines so badly, but just in case anyone hasn't heard of it. I will be eagerly following the proceedings and willing to help anyone through a mental recording/directing/editing block!


frerard mini fang bang
A newer, darker album is coming up. Halloween (and Frankie's birthday) looms, and what better way to celebrate than a flailtastic mini frerard (fang!)bang? The challenge, should you choose to accept it: vampire frerard, 5k word minimum.

Again, this isn't something that I'll be taking part in (the timeline is... very tight) and vampires aren't something I like writing or creating around, but I will happily consume the resulting fanworks. I'm not doing anything for Hallowe'en this year, podfic-wise (last year, myself and [personal profile] knight_tracer worked frantically to get I Have Been All Things Unholy ready for Hallowe'en.) but it's nice to see that I will get my horror fix!




HAPPY OCTOBER SWAP

October Swap is still taking place! I don't know about anything else, but if you want something from me, just comment :D I'm so glad I made a spreadsheet while I was still ahead though, there is so much giving and goodwill going around! I know poor [personal profile] analise010 was saying to me on Twitter that she's finding it hard to keep up, which is a good sign imo! All the more fun!


#InformalTwitterPodficExchange is going on! I just signed up - it's gonna be fuuuun :D Signups are open until Friday, just tweet [twitter.com profile] vworpvworp or [twitter.com profile] bessyboo with fandoms you are willing to record, and ones you'd like to receive in!


Podbang is also accepting sign ups now! Do so here.




October is Repod Month this year!
Come post your repods over at [Unknown LJ tag]
October is re-pod month! So if you have a repod lingering on your harddrive, go, post it! Celebrate!


Wow, that's a lot to get through this month! So, how is everyone!?

Irish mediaspam!

letsgofriday
This is for [personal profile] analise010 as part of the October swap that's going on! She wanted Irishy things, I said I'd make a small mediaspam while I figured out what to send her, and I... ended up with a load of dance but not many other Irishy things? You guys, I just LOVE Irish dancing. (Except the costumes. EW.)

I'll be back with more later!
