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!

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.

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.

Being the last one to leave the office is pretty much one of the most depressing things I know ... That being said, I hate taking over for co-workers on vacation. Meh.

Also, uhm, whoever sent me that anonymous glass heart - thanks? I have really no idea who it was, but it brightened my day a little.

Random thought #342314:

I think I've discovered a certain ... pattern in my user icons )

Random question # 723463:

Is anyone watching The Borgias? I find it pretty entertaining so far, but that might be because I have no clue about the historical accuracy. I mean, all I know about the Borgias I know from the Cantarella manga, but I find myself thinking very often "Hey! I remember that! That happened in the manga, too!", so I'm having my fun. Maybe when the show is over I'll actually read something accurate about them, but for now my vague half-knowledge will have to do.

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. :(

Amazon Sells More E-Books Than Hardcover Copies
Over the past three months, Amazon reports selling 143 Kindle e-books for every 100 hardcovers. And over the past month, for every 100 hardcover books Amazon has sold, it has sold 180 Kindle e-books.

This probably comes off as a little crazy, but something about this makes me raise my hackles. I had my first computer when I was 9, grew up as/into a media geek and wouldn't trade the internet for anything in the world. I have read more fanfiction on a computer than I could count, but the thought of solid real books slowly but eventually disappearing from our society somehow terrifies me. :/ - Damn, I feel like Giles from "Buffy". Also old.

Because I've watched "Sophie Scholl - Die letzten Tage/The Final Days" this afternoon:

What would you do/how far would you go to stand up for your beliefs? And would you do the same, if it meant imprisonment or even death for you?

Finally finished reading Neil Gaiman's "American Gods" today. Cool book, although I wish I had done some research about Norse mythology beforehand. It probably would have ensured a lot of aha experiences. ^^

Anyway, there was a passage somewhere in the middle of the book that kind of got stuck in my head, because it was just... I don't know. Pretty interesting. And very, very true.

[info]ladyhurt  posted this today in her journal and I just can't help spreading this on my flist as well, because it's. Absolutely. Awesome. *flails*

And if you don't like Revolverheld, then simply watch it because of the video, for slashy goodness awaits! *flails even more*

Straight Americans need... an education of the heart and soul.  They must understand - to begin with - how it can feel to spend years denying your own deepest truths, to sit silently through classes, meals, and church services while people you love toss off remarks that brutalize your soul.  ~Bruce Bawer, The Advocate, 28 April 1998

I was doing a little editing and looking for new quotes for my "Football/Homophobia Post", when I found this quote up there. Kind of depressed me, because it reminded me of how frustrating homophobia can be. *sighs* *needs to write some more footie/homophobia-fic sometime soon*
And here's another quote that I found pretty good:

No matter how far in or out of the closet you are, you still have a next step.  ~Author Unknown~

...And now I'm off to bed. *rushes off*

Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
