This is just to say: I've pretty much moved to Dreamwidth.

I'll still be cross-posting most of my entries, and obviously keeping my LJ to participate in various communities or comment on various journals that haven't moved, but I'd prefer that any interaction people try to make with me be over there? If you'd like to friend me, please do it on Dreamwidth. If you'd like to comment on any of my posts after July 19th, 2010 (besides this one!), please do it on Dreamwidth. If you're looking for any of my posts, my tags are no longer updated well here. Etc, etc.

I currently have 10 Dreamwidth codes up for grabs; please comment here if you'd like one.

Thanks!

my journal: fiercynn at Dreamwidth
my fic: masterlist here (still at LJ until I figure out better coding!) or at AO3
my recs: at delicious

Thank you so much for signing up for these Yuletide fandoms! I am SO THRILLED that you're writing something for me - I am pretty much guaranteed to love whatever you write, especially when it's going to feature these characters that I love so dearly.

general preferencesCollapse )

Now, specifically by fandom! These are pretty much the same prompts I gave on my sign-up (except for the one about Sam Stewart, which I expanded upon a bit), but I've copied and pasted them here too just in case.

Scrotal Recall/LovesickCollapse )

Fresh Off The BoatCollapse )

Foyle"s WarCollapse )

Hope that's helpful! If not, feel free to comment anonymously with any particular questions. And thank you again for writing for me - I'm so excited to read and squee over whatever you come up!

Thank you SO MUCH for signing up to write one of my pairings! I love all of these femslashy relationships to death, so you should feel free to write pretty much whatever you want to about any of them. I'll enjoy it even more if you enjoyed writing it!

However, if you do want more prompts or guidelines, here are some of the things I tend to love, or ideas that I've had about these pairings.

general tropes and dynamics I likeCollapse )

Now, specifically by fandom! These are pretty much the same prompts I gave on my sign-up, but I've copied and pasted them here too just in case.

QuanticoCollapse )

Hope that's helpful! If not, feel free to comment anonymously with any particular questions. And thank you again for writing for me - I'm so excited to read and squee over whatever you come up!

HI FRIENDS.

I don't even know how to express how much I've been the worst on dreamwidth lately; suffice to say that I'm primarily fannishly active on twitter these days, so if I somehow have not followed you there, please find me as @fiercynn so I can rectify this!

However, I did want to post about some challenges and cons that I've taken part in recently! Firstly, my super super super late Yuletide recs and reveal! I received two gorgeous ladies-centric Hamilton fics: A Mind At Work by GwendolynGrace, which was a lovely look at how the Schuyler sisters always supported each other, and like real people do by evildevilgirl02, an adorable Peggy/Theodosia modern AU!

I also wrote a surprisingly well-received Jane the Virgin fic called #Rogeliban, in which Rogelio finds RPF that ships him with his rival, and decides to do something about it, in the most Rogelio way possible. I had a lot of fun writing it and making the graphics, which I definitely did not do in the last 24 hours possible just after seeing Hamilton with [personal profile] scribe, nope.

Secondly, my almost-as-late Festivids 2015 rec and reveal! I received Pirate in the Water by shinealightonme, an awesome Galavant vid about my darling Princess Isabella Maria Lucia Elisabetta of Valencia, show-casing all her badassness and vulnerability and humor. And I made Kiss You Off, a Kinky Boots vid for [personal profile] kaydeefalls, which I somehow managed to keep secret from her. :D

Next! This past weekend I was at Bitchin' Party 2016, which was absolutely WONDERFUL - I'll hopefully do a proper con report at some point - but for now I'll just link to the BP 2016 Vidshow which [personal profile] scribe and I had the pleasure of running again.

And FINALLY, [personal profile] scribe and I also premiered our multifandom sidekicks vid Grenade there, which is probably the thing I'm most proud of and most excited to share! [personal profile] scribe originally came up with the idea to vid our favorite loyal, self-sacrificial Hufflepuff sidekicks to this song because it is, in fact, completely her Id Vid, but it involves so many of my favorite characters as well. ♥

HOW ARE YOU GUYS?

ACK, I'm sorry this is SO LATE! I really hope this hasn't made things too difficult for you! Especially since I am absolutely thrilled that you are going to be making a vid for me, which I am guaranteed to love no matter what.

Please take the following prompts as inspiration, not as restrictive guidelines - in the end, I'll definitely enjoy the vid more if you enjoyed making it and used your own ideas for it! And as far as music goes, I like pretty much everything - I think it's more important that the song fits the vid than that it is music I personally like. And really, I'm probably going to like it just because it's in the vid, so it's really kind of a moot point!

BelleCollapse )

Fresh Off The BoatCollapse )

GalavantCollapse )

Jane The VirginCollapse )

Monty Python"s Flying CircusCollapse )

The Rachel Maddow ShowCollapse )

Cracked.com staff videosCollapse )

Thank you again for making this vid for me - I can't wait to see it!

LOVE,
Deepa

Thank you so much for signing up for these Yuletide fandoms! I am SO THRILLED that you're writing something for me - I am pretty much guaranteed to love whatever you write in these fandoms.

There are a few things I'm NOT very into, that I'd prefer not to have in the fic:

-Deep, fundamental power imbalances between characters who are in a romantic or sexual relationship. In fact, if there's any sort of built-in power dynamic, I'd prefer it to be reversed by the attraction between them - the powerful one being the one pining, etc. As a result of that, I'm not super into BDSM or anything with formalized power roles - I like bondage when it's about trying to make the restricted person lose control, but that's about it.
-Pregnancy, regardless of the sex of a pregnant person.
-Character death or severe trauma (including rape and sexual abuse) that is not in keeping with the canon.
-In general, I do like happy endings, but that's not a hard and fast rule depending on the fandom.

Other than the points above, the following prompts are meant to be inspiring rather than restrictive, so take these ideas with an entire shaker of salt, and go with whatever makes you the most excited. I'll enjoy it more if you enjoyed writing it!

In no particular order:

Scrotal RecallCollapse )

GalavantCollapse )

HamiltonCollapse )

Again, I am so so so excited for Yuletide and what you're writing for me, and thank you again!

Hey guys! So, I am moving to New York for grad school this fall, and I'm starting to search for housing and fannish roommates. My preference would be to find a room in an existing housing situation, since my program is only for a year and I don't know if I'll be staying in the area after that, but of course, I'm also open to finding fannish roommates and then looking for a place together.

About me: Hi, my name is Deepa! I'm a 26-year-old Indian-American queer cis woman, and I'm going to be attending a environmental studies Master's program at Columbia University this fall. I'm currently single, I don't smoke or have any pets; I drink moderately, but mostly with small groups of friends. I'm an introvert who loves to have close friends around, and I'm lucky enough to have a number of friends already living in the area who will probably visit, but I'm not going to have any big parties or anything. I cook regularly, so I'd be using the kitchen a lot, but I'm fairly neat and prefer my living conditions to be clean (I'm okay with clutter, but I'm not big on actually dirty surroundings). If there are any relevant questions that you have about me, feel free to ask!

Here are the ideal conditions for where I want to live:

Location: definitely Manhattan; preferably Morningside Heights, West Harlem, Hamilton Heights, or Washington Heights, close-ish to Columbia University

Lease length: for not more than a year, ideally starting September 1st, 2015 (but I could possibly start in August if that’s all that’s available)

Rent: for now my range is $800 to $1100, but I'm still trying to get a sense of the typical range in New York, that might be negotiable (also depending on what kinds of loans I end up getting, which I should hopefully find out soon).

Other conditions: I'd prefer roommates who don't smoke, mostly because the smell of tobacco and marijuana both make me feel kind of sick, and ideally I'd like to not live with any big pets, though that's negotiable.

That's pretty much all I can think of at the moment! My email is fiercynn[at]gmail[dot]com, please contact me if you or anyone else you know might be interested in living with me! Feel free to spread this around - a rebloggable Tumblr post and a RT-able tweet as well. Thanks!

So, this is not a real post, because for whatever reason I am being terribly avoid-y about making a real post right now, but! Recently I've had a few conversations where people have asked me to tell them more about various random media things that I'm really into right now, so I thought I'd put up a general post with some of the most commonly asked-about options and see if anyone has preferences.

And if you think I'm primarily doing this because after 13 years in fandom I've finally treated myself to a paid journal-ing account, well, you would be absolutely right.

Oh man, you guys, I have taken to fannish Twitter like a crazy person. I mean, I don't think I'm actually tweeting a huge amount or anything, but the amount of time I spend trying to refresh it is, well, significant. It's sort of a happy medium for me between the overwhelmingness of Tumblr and the lack of immediacy of dreamwidth. Plus, actually keeping in touch with fannish friends! Such a plus!

I am currently still on the east coast - after MJ and visiting [personal profile] scribe, I've come back down to stay with my lovely girlfriend [tumblr.com profile] sparklyslug for another couple of days before heading back west. I'm unfortunately still feeling sick - well, really I've been sick on-and-off for quite a few months, with sort of vague and inconsistent symptoms including random nausea, fatigue, headaches, and sometimes stomach problems. This past week it escalated into frequent dizziness and vertigo, which wasn't fun at all, particularly when it meant that I pretty much became a lump on [personal profile] scribe's couch instead of hanging out properly. I started taking some basic medication for it, which has helped a bit over the past couple days, but all the symptoms are still sporadically present. I'm going to see a doctor about it as soon as I get back to Seattle, but that won't be until later this week, so crossing my fingers it will stay manageable until then.

But the exciting news of the day is that I got into my top two grad school choices, Columbia University and LSE! I'm so stoked - the utter anxiety of the grad school application process had already dissipated when I got into a couple of my safety schools, but I'm so thrilled about my choices now. Of course, it does mean I have to make a difficult decision about whether I'm going to be in New York or London next year, but it's a wonderful problem to have.

In other news, have been rewatching a lot of Miss Fisher's after getting various people into it, I'm so excited that people are talking about it so much! If you're not familiar with the show, this awesome piece at the F Word UK hits on pretty much every thing I love about it. I'm still three episodes away from finishing the second season because I've been watching it with my mom, but hopefully we'll do that this weekend when I get back to Seattle and stay at my parents' house for a few days. I have like 20% of an idea for a fic about Mac after that, because MAC ♥
