Sometimes I get a very specific yearning for a specific scenario. Like, I'm looking to catch up on all the HP fanfiction I've missed in the last 4 years or so. But when I tried looking for finders communities or rec lists there were outdated or horribly, horribly tagged.

And then I cry a little inside, because the Supernatural fandom spoiled me so much and why can't every fandom be as organized, is a well tagged finders community really too much to ask for, god.

I just want Harry centric Outsider POV from like his time at the Dursleys or from people who knew him then, is that really too much to ask for?

Glee': Last week's episode inspires record traffic for LGBT suicide prevention organization The Trevor Project

lee‘s winter finale featured a story line surrounding former bully Karofsky (Max Adler), who attempted suicide after finding himself the target of gay bullying. The episode included a PSA for the Trevor Project, a national organization that helps prevent LGBT suicide that counts Daniel Radcliffe and Glee‘s own Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Kevin McHale, and Adler among its supporters. The episode of the Fox hit led to a record number of traffic for the organization’s website and phone number. “What was great about the show is that they worked in conjunction with us so we knew in advance that there was going to in all likelihood be an increase in volume,” says cofounder Peggy Rajski. “What happened was the volume went up about 300 percent, but we were ready.”

Rajski says the Trevor Project toll-free number fielded triple the number of calls normally received, plus a huge online boost. “On average, our site probably attracts about an average of 1500 visits a day,” she admits. “Tuesday we got 10,000. There’s the power of network TV.”


And that's why love or hate the decisions the writers made with the episode, it was worth it for the thousand of people who may have a better/longer life because of it. If that is what happens because of it, if people from all over understand that it's not weak to need help and not uncommon to feel bad, I will live with any clunky dialouge or hammy choices. Because in the end that's what counts.

Sooo because I obviously had to much time on my hand today (Procrastination FTW) and was always asking myself, who actually gets the most songs etc. on Glee (and didn't find it anywhere else), I compiled a Top Three list. Now because they are some differences in when they joined etc. I'm going to do a bit of breakdowen, different categories, if you will. All the information is taken from the Character pages of the glee wikia and I only looked at the regular kid members (+Sam)

All Seasons )

Season One )


Season Two )


Season Three )
ravelqueen: (papparazzi klaine)
This is my opinion and I will word it as carefully and sensitive as I know how, but it will still contain possibly triggering material, because of its nature and I really don't want to hurt anyone over what in the end is just entertainment, so if you think it will be too harsh on you, please, please just don't read it.

Jesus that is heavy stuff )

Spoilers for songs, and behind the scenes interview. )

Also as someone had pointed out, Blaine/Kurt related songs have never made much sense relationship wise and yeah, from the ones I can remember....

Duets

1. Baby it's cold outside: pre-Klaine and while it was flirty it didn't have anything to do with their characters

2. Let it snow: the same as 1. just this time with established Klaine

3. Candles: They just got together....and sing a break-up song

4. Perfect: Where they both sing about how another character entirely is perfect.

Group-number leads

1. Animal: ehm, yeah pre-Klaine about being really in lust with someone

2. Love Shack: ......a song about how they would really like to have a great big orgy? (WTF)

Serenades

They haven't been a lot, especially cause you can't always tell if they are singing it for them.

Like , correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Kurt has ever sung for Blaine, even "Blackbird" was for Pavarotti, not Blaine.

So that leaves us with

1. Teenage Dream: which is topical, but so, so pre-Klaine that it barely counts as a serenade

2. Somewhere only we know: kind of topical, but also super sad, again a break up song and more the message of the Warblers than anyone else

So yeah, maybe Song Selection really doesn't tell us a lot about what those two crazy kids will be up to

ravelqueen: (love shack)
Because of a really nice friending meme and for me, I will now strive to give at least a cursory reaction to all the different crap I watch, lets see how long that resolution lasts....

So I will start with a belated reaction to Glees V-day episode "Heart"

Tin Roof....Rusted )

In other news, the Daily Show wins all the awards for its Tuesday episode especially for this bit:



ravelqueen: (Oro)
Sooo I learned a lot these past two days how one should learn effectively, by making study plans and organizing and doing things early and shit for this final I have in an hour....The irony of it all it burns my eyes.

I just see myself in 10 years trying to get my students to do their homework effectively and feeling like the biggest hypocrite there ever was... oh well.

Now just hoping all the random knowledge I crammed into my head will actually help me pass this stupid exam (Why can't I get passing marks for my truly extensive knowledge of etiquette in fandom for example? That is stuff I totally know!)
ravelqueen: (blaine)

 

Uh yeah, I actually only set out to write an episode reaction, but instead it turned into a longwinded meta analysis of the David - Kurt relationship...Idek

So if anyone is interested in it, my thoughts on it, based on todays episodes, meaning, massive spoilers for "Heart" under the cut as well as a disclaimer, that I'm not a Kurtofsky shipper, but I don't hate on anyones preferences and I hope you will extend me the same curtesies ;)

Why I think the Kurt-David wouldn't work and shouldn't happen )

So in conclusion, damn you Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Steve Moffat and Mark Gatiss. I will love you forever for creating one of the best pieces of television I have ever seen where is the third series

I NEED ALL THE FLUFFY FIX-IT FANFICTION!!! NOW! WRITE IT!! I need to be happy again *cry*

ravelqueen: (clutching my pearls)
ALL I CAN SAY SPOILER-FREE:
  • ALL THE GAY, ALL OF IT!!!

  • D'awwwwwwwwwwwwwww, they are so cute

  • I'm not prepared for Reichenbach I'M JUST NOT *CRIES*

Aaand here the second thing^^

Title: Ways to ruin a nice day
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2150
Pairing/Character(s): Gen, Ensemble
Notes/Warnings: Jesus Christ, this story did not want to be written. Inspirations struck two days before the deadline after I had written around 2000 words in an attempt to write different scenarios. Extra special thanks go to my beta [info]sulien77, who not only did an awesome job, but also super fast (because I was laaate) and basically all the love goes to her <3<3. Written for the [livejournal.com profile] dresdenficathon 

Summary: Harry just wanted to have a picnic. Really.



ravelqueen: (Default)

I actually wrote enough fic for challenges in the last month, that I now have a posting backlog O_o, well here goes

Title:
History in Moments
Characters: Sam and Bobby
Rating: PG
Words: ~2500
Warnings/Spoilers: spoilers for all seasons till about 7.03
A/N: This was written for the

[livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas challenge as a gift for [livejournal.com profile] glimmerella . I always felt that Show indulges a lot of Dean+Bobby interaction, but doesn't give us Sam lovers the same. And because schmoop was asked for, have self-indulgent Sam+Bobby interaction history^^.

Summary: The relationship of Sam and Bobby in five acts

 


 

When Sam met Bobby for the first time he was 10 )

Well, 2011 kind of sucked, because I was being stupid, by sabotaging myself a lot, so hopefully 2012 will be better (and the world doesn't end XD)

Interestingly enough, concerning fandom and not rl, 2011 was really good. I got into a few quite big serious fandoms and actually managed to finally get into writing fanfic, after exclusively reading for something like 6 years.

4 different challenges in 3 different fandoms with around 10.000 words. All in all, not bad for a first effort, I guess ;). Now I'll just have to combine rl success with fandom and all will be well.

I hope you all had a kick ass year and that 2012 will  be even better

ravelqueen: (Default)
Stolen very quickly from [personal profile] sahiya but it's just too awesome not to XD

1. I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.
3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.
4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.
5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
6. Was learning cursive really necessary?
7. Google Maps really needs to start their directions on #5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.
10. Bad decisions make good stories.
11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don’t want to have to restart my collection…again.
13. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.
14. “Do not machine wash or tumble dry” means I will never wash this – ever.
15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn’t answer? Drop the phone and run away?
16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
17. I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
18. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
19. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.
20. I wish Google Maps had an “Avoid Ghetto” routing option.
21. Sometimes, I’ll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.
22. I would rather try to carry 10 over-loaded plastic bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.
23. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I’m trying to finish a text.
24. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
25. How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?
26. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!
27. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.
28. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?
29. There’s no worse feeling than that millisecond you’re sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.
30. As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate bicyclists.
31. Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
32. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey – but I’d bet my ass everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

Title: Good Neighbour
Genre: Humour, Outsider POV
Characters: OC, Kenshin, Sano
Rating: K+
Summary: Ushihara Akiko was not a gossip, she was just concerned.

Authors note:  Yes, I actually managed to write something else! Even though I'm probably going to continue jumping around in different fandoms and Kenshin was always my first love. This was written for the november thanksgiving drabble fest at [livejournal.com profile] rk_fic_exchange . I was a horrible participant, because this is not related to a season and I was also late submitting it, but oh well ^^.

This is a personal pet scenario that I always thought ridiciously funny and I'm kind of proud of myself to have finally put it on paper,even if the quality isn't really that high, because I wrote in like 3 hours. This is un-unbeta'd and I probably will look it over at some point and clean it up, but if anyone reading this spots errors etc. feel free to tell me


 

The residents of the Kamiya Dojo were suspect )

 

ravelqueen: (oh really?)
Feeling especially fat and ugly today. Where the fuck is my knight in shining armor anyway. le sigh. Bah tomorrow I'll feel better about it I suppose and its a horribly stupid girly problem anyway (fuck you media btw, fuck you very much). Just how is one supposed to pick up/flirt with guys for an ego boost when you feel like everyone will turn you down anyway, because you weigh 10 kilo over the beauty standard. Its a stupid cycle of stupid, which is wrong and just self pitying, but can't help myself somtimes.

In other news, YGO fandom get off your ass and produce something readable I'm begging you. Sometimes I get in the mood and 90% of what you have to offer I don't even get to the back button, because the summary already tells me that I will have no desire to read your stupid Mary Sue/mpreg/author insert/badly written mess.

Now I'm going back to procrastinating my procrastination and watching a guy  in the shadows talk about bad pop music

LOL
