ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Avengers ~ Darcy Lewis)
I feel like my new icons are flirting with each other:
no, really )
And now I ship Darcy/Bucky. Damn. Is there even fic?

Anyhow, I was thinking a lot about how to title my fic for the Deutsch Big Bang, but didn't get anywhere with it. Which had me thinking about how to title fanfics in general and how you (I) do it and which patterns and ideas to use. So I decided to just write them down, maybe in an attempt to get some ideas going.
How to find a title for a story )
So this is what I came up with. If you know anything else, let me know!
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (DAO ~ Sten ~ The cake is a lie)
Derek!feels omg I need to stop with that fucking show )

Holy shit, where came all that Derek meta from.

PS: I keep forgetting to mention it, but I really dig the new Teen Wolf intro. I really, really do. It's so BAMF, I love it.
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Iron Man ~ Pepper)
I'm having a lot of emotions about various Avengers related topics lately so I thought I'd finally write them down so maybe they won't come back to me all the time.

The Captain America March )

Pepper Potts )
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Iron Man ~ Tony)
Does anyone happen to know what the stick is called? The one Tony uses to give Bruce an electric shock?
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Reading)
Civil War: Iron Man by Christos N. Gage, Daniel Knauf, Charles Knauf, Brian Michael Bendis, Alex Maleev

Irische Märchen by Frederik Hetmann

Alles ist erleuchtet/Everything is illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer
Okay, is it just me again or did anyone else think that Alex is a closeted gay man?

Pu Der Bär/Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne

Die Schule Der Egoisten by Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The review is for the entire series, so beware spoilers for all three books.

Also, some more thoughts about the Hunger Games that I didn't want to put onto Goodreads.

thoughts and spoilers )

Omg, that got really, really long. I don't even know, maybe I got it all wrong, but tell me if you think differently.
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Iron Man ~ Pepper)
What English literature classic do you think Pepper Potts would read? And with read, I mean really enjoy it and re-read it several times? (It should be something pre 1940-ish, so something Steve would know.)
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Dr. Who - Team Tardis)
1 - How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?

my babbling, uh, answer )

The rest of the meme )
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (VM ~ Repressed homosexuality)
Some thoughts about last week's Glee ep (2x06) )

My NaNo/bachelor-count so far:

 
2868 / 15000 words. 19% done!

Which is far less than I should have at his point, but I lack decent literature and even more decent time to actually write. :(
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (SPN ~ Ruby)
Thoughts on seasons 3 & 4, spoilers )

And uh, I'm gonna be gamemaster again tomorrow. Being torn between anxiety, panic and "oh, whatever", I kind of wonder why I'm trying this again, but I guess I just can't leave it be. Story-telling and being creative is one of the few things I'm really persistent at and, anyway, I'm way too stubborn to give up. Just ... wish me good luck, maybe, so I won't lose my confidence again? (I know I'm taking this definitely too serious, but just bear with me.)
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Vampires Masquerade)
Some thoughts about Mick & Josef after seeing 'Sleeping Beauty'. )

Apart from that - did I mention that Josef is, like, awesome?! *wants to squish him and goes off watching some more Moonlight*

13 Writing Tips by Chuck Palahniuk

"[...] For this essay, my goal is to put more in. To put together a kind-of Christmas stocking of ideas, with the hope that something will be useful. Or like packing the gift boxes for readers, putting in candy and a squirrel and a book and some toys and a necklace, I'm hoping that enough variety will guarantee that something here will occur as completely asinine, but something else might be perfect. [...]"

The First Draft by Max Barry

" 'All first drafts are shit,' according to Ernest Hemingway, and who would argue with someone who checks out by eating a shotgun? No, no, Ern was on to something here: when you finally crest that great mountain and stare "THE END" full in the face-when you, somehow, incredibly, have managed to complete a novel-length work-then you're about half-way home. [...]"
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Writing)
To everyone who missed my first post: Do you consider yourself a good writer? (part I). I'd still love to hear your opinions about this. :)


ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Writing agony)
Do you consider yourself a good writer?

I know this is a question that probably is looked at rather sceptical. I guess you could even say it's a small taboo among writers, because hey – who wants to look like a show-off saying their writing is oh-so fantastic? Right? Right.

However, if you want to tell me you've never asked yourself whether you are a good writer or not, then I clearly won't believe you. Everyone does that and everyone has some sort of opinion about the things they write. And I would love to hear yours.

After all, if you write fanfiction, you need to have the confidence to say: "I like what I wrote and I think it's good enough to be posted and read by others." Or – if you don't think like that – what makes you post your fics, anyway? What is your reasoning, what your motivation?

(I'm going to write about my self-opinion as well later on or tomorrow, but now I should be off learning about ten pages for Digital Media by heart. *blerch*)
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Angel wings)
YAY, I survived my Business Studies presentation! *does a dork!dance* (And I didn't even speak too fast nor did I stutter! *is amazed by herself*) Now it's "only" two more papers and creating an entire storyboard myself and then I can really start learning for my exams. Hoorray. [/sarcasm] (Man, I'm just glad, when this is all over. Why do I always have to wait until it's almost too late for everything? *rolls eyes*)

And last time P & P RPG today! Whohooo! *is relieved*

Oh, and [profile] 3ngel posted a nice meta about the principles of receiving and giving feedback for fanfiction in her journal. Unfortunately, t's in German, but there are some interesting thoughts in there. *loves musings and discussions like that*

(Sorry for the total randomness of this entry, but I feel slightly weird today just as on any other day as well, lately.)
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Supernatural)
I finally got around to watch the end of season 1 (which was abso-fuckin'-lutely gripping and exciting and mean, and omg, Dean was so awesome) and somehow, my mind is full with thoughts on the characters, their relationships and the way they're depicted in the show.

So here a little huge rambling. I don't know whether it makes any sense, but it needed to get out.




ETA: OH. MY. GOD. I just watched the first episode of season 2 and I'm fucking bawling like a baby. The ending of season 1 is just "WTF?!", but this, this is breaking my heart. *goes back to crying and watching ep 2*
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Reading)
Omg.

Oh. My. God.



(This entry probably will be edited a bazillion times, seeing that I certainly forgot something important.)
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Football)



Note: I'm currently trying to work out a new sorting system for the list, so the order might be a little messed up for the time being.

[ger] German; [engl] English


 

 

 

 

Note: Shall be updated whenever I happen to find new stuff or if someone will kindly provide me with links or quotes. ;)
