It was good football, I'd say.

I just wanted to thank you guys for all the support you've given me. This year has been awful so far, but you've held true and I cannot adequately express how much it means to me to have you around.

Thank you so much for being there. Good thoughts and good wishes really do go a long way for me, so thank you for being so generous with them.

I love you all lots.

I've spent the second half of this week with my mental calendar on one day behind. So technically, to me, today is Saturday.

This, of course, explains how come the school next door did not have class yesterday. It's like I live under a rock or something...

Okay, so, it's like this, I have an awesome, completely adorable and unequivocally hot complexion that happens to be so (to me, anyway) solely on the merits of it being MY complexion.

So eff you world. My body issues are not triggered by your thinly-veiled racist remarks. You may leave my exalted presence now. TYVM.
tea_and_ink: (Default)
So, it's just hit me, and entire season has gone by without me publicizing to the internets how squeeful I get whenever Eleven is on my screen.

Shame on me.

let's rectify that )

Ahem, yes. Today should be interesting. England at 11 am (heee Eleven, should I take this as a sign?) local time and then Argentina at 15.30. Seems like this Sunday is shaping up to be a Very Emotional Day for me.

Things what I've been doing: counting how many books I've read so far this year. Grand total: 47. Idek. Apparently I HAVE NO LIFE ANYMORE. School books not included, which is sad. So, recs to come because some of them have been truly outstanding.
Uh, disclaimer: not all of these were door stoppers, guys. Some where very short (ish) and in ebook format which makes reading them while eating and ignoring the phone rather easier. Also I have four forty-five minutes long bus rides to clock in every day so... there's the time.

Also, also, also, THANK YOU [livejournal.com profile] jamesinboots  MY SOCCER BALL IS TRES AWESOME AND I SORT OF STARED AT IT FOR A WHILE BECAUSE WHEN I LOVE I GET CREEPY. Apparently.

Wow, I'm posting...

Okay, so, I´m confessing here and now that I've always been, and forever shall be a supporter of Brazil, a couple of European clubs/teams thrown in from time to time, and Argentina very rarely mostly because, well Brazil.

BUT, that was one hell of a match, and also the streets are bursting with people, and singing and there's so much joy and enthusiasm it's hard not to be infected.

CAS!!!!!! Happy birthday love, you can bet that if I knew how, I'd totally sparkle up this post with, like sparkly text in a giant, flist spamming font, so there.

In further proof of my never-ending regard appreciation love for you, I've taken a picture of the general pun of many of the jokes I've been subjected to for the last few days by people with nothing better to do ) but I do not care if they mock me, they clearly do not understand your coolness, and so ::blows raspberry to their faces::

Srsly though, I'm sending lots of good vibes your way today, hope you have a great one and KEEP UP THE ADMIRABLE PHILOSOPHY WHICH I ADMIRE (because it's admirable).

::tackles you:: much love for you today, sweets!

Just spoke on the phone with Jay, here's what he has to say for himself:

J: So, good news.
Me: shoot.
J: I don't really have to read or speak keysmash in order to live in Wales. How awesome is that?
Me: very awesome. What's the grandma say?
J: that she'll lock me up with some folk she knows, then I'll really know pain or some such.
Me: Ah, good ol' grandma.

So, yeah. That happened. Also, it'll be no time before he starts cussing in Welsh, wouldn't dare call him my brother ever again if I don't get evidence of this progress sometime next phone call...
tea_and_ink: (and so it begins)
Well, that happened. I'm sorry show, but )

There were parts to like, yes, but I'm getting my enjoyment overwhelmed by my facedesking.

Maybe I should just try not to muck their world turtle. IDK.

Further thoughts might be forthcoming. As well as possibly better framed and redacted. However, I cannot promise less capslocks, sorry.

So, dear, lovely, awesome, unparalleled ladies of my flist I come here today to suck up to you ask you a very serious question of great import: what do you think a matriarchal society should have/be like/work like? Why? (okay, so two questions, then).

I'm sort of playing around with world-building sandboxes and this may never percolate into anything beyond a mental exercise, so be warned. However, isn't this a great mental exercise? (hint: it is)
tea_and_ink: (our last day as children)
My friend, who does not like that "that sifi-fantasy CGI mental handjob business" has just uttered this one:

R: in the immortal words of one Jimmy T. Kirk: bullshit.
Me: *_* heeeeeeee!!! I've totally roped you in. I've totally roped you in. I've totally roped you in.
R: Crap. So this is what being corrupted feels like. Well, at least Mr Kirk is a hotass.

Also, this post is for my girl [livejournal.com profile] maboheme  whom I promised some reccing of the type I've been neglecting. Hence:

Were you looking for a magical kingdom inside that wardrobe by Netgirl_y2k over at AOOO  Merlin/Morgana, Arthur/Gwen. In which there is absolutely no ravishing. Of anybody, at all. No matter what Arthur says. Kind of relentlessly hilarious with a touch of awesome and some seriously fantastic dynamics.

Through the dark by [livejournal.com profile] kepp0xy  . Wherein Morgana hones her magic and Merlin lends a helping hand (I may have a thing for this particular idea, I think you'll notice). Incidentally, this author has a wonderful array of fics I think should be checked out since they span all tastes and possibilities.

Drastically Redefining Protocol
by [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock . I think the chances you haven't read this one are slim, however in case you haven't here, have some. Arthur is Crown Prince of England, Merlin works at a hospital and Uther passes out in ottomans. Also Gwen and Morgana are kind of stellar. Satisfying long fic, this one. Arthur/Merlin of the boy-on-boy variety.

Peppermint Wind by [livejournal.com profile] miakun . Another Merlin/Morgana one, this one being several times more awesome on account of it taking place in the present and over exotic fruit. Not an AU, btw.

Behind Closed Doors by [livejournal.com profile] miakun . Insanely hot A/G/Mer piece where they're private investigators and also a totally hot threesome as often as possible. Like, really. So very NC-17.

What Happened When The World Fell Apart
by iambic. This one is a really good read, takes place in a steampunkish universe and it's structured in such a way that the story is told both as if read from the official history book and the POV of the characters involved. It doesn't seem to make much sense at first, but then you get into it (if you do get into it) and it pays off beautifully. One of the first fics I read in this fandom.

Ever Mine
by [livejournal.com profile] blackmamba . She has a number of beautiful fics, I think I could simply rec you everything she's written in this fandom, actually. This particular one  has an ethereal quality to it you can almost touch (figure that one out! hehe), from all the characters' POV as they experience a series of supernatural moments that closely relate, one way or another, to Morgana and her ability. Lovely way to look at relationships dynamics.

An Ever-fixed Mark by [livejournal.com profile] imperfectcircle . I think this is my most favoritest one so far. They're a seduretu and if you don't know what that is, there's a brief explanation in the fic, if you do know what that is, then what the hell are you doing still here? you should be over there getting drunk on plot and love and pitch perfect voices. If there is one fic on this list you want to read and ditch the others, this is the one. Trust me.

in omne tempus by [livejournal.com profile] giddygeek . Of power and what it means to be a woman in this male dominated world of Morgana. Tremendously sensual Morgana/Gwen.

A Cautionary Tale About Tomatoes (and zombies) by Netgirl_y2k. Wildly hilarious, I mean there are zombies in it, but that's not even the part where it gets ridiculously funny.

A Little Knowledge by [livejournal.com profile] bluflamingo . Morgana and her sheer fierceness save the day.

Don't Be Sorry by [livejournal.com profile] sparky77 . Another one where everybody loves everybody and Arthur used to climb into Morgana's bed at the age of five because some things are always right in the world.

Aaaaaand Five Lessons by Selena. Because I couldn't NOT include this one. Five lessons Arthur's learned that shape the sort of man he is. It's a beautiful character study piece.

Um, yeah, since you don't know the sacrifices I've had to make, I'll just point you to my delicious tag on these four so that you can go there, if you're still interested.
tea_and_ink: (y canto canciones de amor y furia)
I think I'm having an identity crisis of some sort. Like, I'm sitting here and I realized I don't even know when Spn's coming back, which might be mostly because I'm agonizing over the lack of new Merlin...

When did I change boats? I was not notified of this in a timely fashion. Not cool, self.

But. Merlin fic, I am gorging myself on it. And I'm loving how prevalently awesome Morgana is portrayed and how Future HQIC Gwen is written and this makes me SO HAPPY because, like, yes they are.

On second thought, maybe them burning Anna up in that episode where Mary and John totally stole the show did it for me, like, I find myself not really caring one way or another, just watching out of habit, and now I wonder if I'll still be around for the next season they've been promising. I think I'll stick around to see what's new and what remains.

Ha! I've figured stuff out. Because I'm awesome, obvs, but also because I'm bored and have a lot of free time since my early classes have been interrupted because the huge classroom is simply wasted in the accommodation of  THREE crazy cats... didn't I predict the enormous success this initiative was going to have?

Um, yeah, onto the stuff that's been figured out. Remember the whole "four horsemen that were to bring about the end of my time" tag?, well, it's been changed, not because I stopped thinking Merlin might be the death of me (oh, but what a way to go), but because I think a renaming of that tag might be more appropriate, and so "the stuff of legends" came to be, I do not need to explain that meaning, and so I won't.

And it'll go something like this: Once upon a time, there was a girl who used to have a life, she would go out and would not tell her brother to "sod off", until she met this charming little warlock, whom befriended these other three outstanding characters and then, she couldn't help but fall for even the awful king who ruled his country with an iron fist, because he too had his amount of charm. The end.

See? Epic, right there.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] winterlive !!!!!!! Awesome girl like you, Danners, will have the bestest ever, I just know it.

Dropping by to inform you that:

a) I've spent the entire weekend reading Arthur/Gwen fics because I loves them and tend to be a bit obsessive when it comes to stuff I love. Also they're lovely and there is some seriously good fic out there wherein Morgana is not taken away because Merlin never tried to kill her because she knew she was magic for a long while and she also knew he was magic as well andthenmostofthecrappypartsofseries2DIDNOTOCCURASSUCH. Awesomecakes.

b) I'm no longer in a committed relationship with my cat because my apartment building's policies changed and since I don't have a balcony I don't get to have a pet. Many tears were shed, many bad words were uttered and many brick walls were hit by my forehead. End result? I had to give Einstein away and it broke my effing soul. Like, I kept crying at random moments between A/G fics. It's awful.

c) My friend has become a thirteen year old boy obsessed with becoming a rocks star or something because out of thin air, she's decided that owning an amplifier will make her life. I do not get this reasoning but she came bearing ice cream and Orlando Bloom movies to ease my pain and so, I care not for the general lack of sense-making of her need for an amplifier.

d) School sort of starts today. At 18.00 hrs. Because Monday night is the bestest time to kick start a new semester, school. Keep up the utterly counterintuitive work.

e) Wow, I'm bitter today. Which is why I'm gonna go drink my sorrows away watch some more A/G vids on YT, I need the cute/lovely/awesome they bring.

f) I'm also considering changing this icon here for an A/G one (my theme, guys, sense it!) but then, it's Alec/Max!!!! this is hard.

flist love

Hi, just popping by real quick to wish [livejournal.com profile] anteka  a very, very, very happy birthday!!! BB your awesomeness knows no limits and I'm so glad you know this because guess what? it makes you EVEN MORE AWESOME.

Love you lots, and ::blushes:: you continuously make my experience in fandom so much better, I even got into Fringe because I thought that you liked it so there had to be something interesting about it (thanks for that, btw), and I never told you. So I'm taking the chance to let you know what a wonderful person I think you are, and how lovely it is to have you around XD

tea_and_ink: (bound to catch the heavens if they fall)
So, on the subject of Sherlock Holmes I have an issue/question/different point of view )

So, what gives? What was your experience in this respect?
tea_and_ink: (Default)
I'm updating because Mousey asked me to.

So, in the way of updating my current life status, well, I'm alive. Also back. For good, not a week.

::hugs LJ:: I missed you!!!!!!
tea_and_ink: (el dia de todas las almas)
Ha. So, y'all remember that one time when I wrote about how I was gonna be kinda gone from the interwebz for a while? Well, I was not lying. In case you were interested.


Also also, the place where I'm at currently is so breath-taking-ly beautiful I cannot describe it properly, just know that there are mountains and cold and ROSES IN EVERY AVAILABLE SQUAURE INCH and, dear Lord, the colors! I'll upload pictures for you as soon as I get to a wi-fi bar (one of the at least fourteen I've already spotted in this less-than-twelve-blocks-large town, care to do the statistics for that?) and have access to my laptop's files.

Other than that: HI BARACKLES!!!!! I kinda miss you and it occurred to me that it's been so fucking long since I last sent you smoke signals it was embarrassing... HIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

olé nonetheless
...and your heart held out like a tin cup to catch the rain...
