ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Avengers ~ Tony & Steve ~ Not worth it)
It's been a while since I posted something about my writing progress, so there you have it:

26635 / 35000 words. 76% done!

Which feels about right this time. The word count might vary up to 36K or 37K (don't you dare laughing, Lou! :P), but I'm slowly crawling towards the showdown. Sometimes I get fleeting moments of panic when I just think about what I've written and think "no, this is complete bullshit and stupid and full of plotholes and you should stick to your oneshot-ramblings of fanfic". Then I remember that I have written 60 pages and think: "okay, fuck you, this beast will get finished no matter what, because I will NOT have wasted almost half a year of my life on this for nothing."

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!

Ever reached a point where you just kind of - lose your momentum? And you look at what you've written and everything seems completely pointless and shitty? Like you've just been stabbing in the dark and it's all wrong and you feel like you need to rewrite everything to make it okay? And then you need to grit your teeth together, because you've come too far to give up now, but it's so fucking hard and DEAR GOD WHEN IS IT OVER WHY CAN'T I BE A FAST WRITER LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IN FANDOM.

ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Avengers ~ Tony & Steve)

22134 / 27500 words. 80% done!

... it doesn't feel like 80 %. At all. More like 60 %. But, huh.

Excuse me, I'll be collapsing into my bed now.

„Schon klar“, knurrt Steve in diesem Tony aus Besorgnis und Strenge ...

Tony, das ist eine Fic über Bucky und Steve. Du hast da nichts zu suchen. *facepalms*

ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Avengers ~ Stark Industries)

3762 / 15000 words. 25% done!

I had to revise my word count upwards, because this is definitely going to take more than 10K words. Positive things: the introductory part is over and Steve has arrived on the scene, which means the real plot can start now. I also had a little chat with J. and he suggested an alternative turn-out for the ending which is even better than the one I had planned. So YAY to that.

Does anyone happen to know what the stick is called? The one Tony uses to give Bruce an electric shock?
ayascythe: Pink Reaper (Avengers ~ Son of Coul)

I totally did not make this post just to show off my new Son of Coul icon.

So, one of the cool things about working online and doing design stuff is that you get to surf on a lot of funny designing sites with great pictures. Here are a few of the things I stumbled upon, plus some other stuff that is ~relevant~ to me.

Paintings of Russian Generals with celebrety faces.
My favourites are Sir Ian McKellen and - YIS - Robert Downey Jr.

Some very awesome Avengers illustrations.

Minimalist superhero posters.

The Many Faces Of
This is a site that composes blog entries about actors in some of their roles under a certain topic. Like, Alan Rickman playing villains. It's really great and funny and there are even awesome statistics and graphics to support their theories. XD Be sure to check out Rickman and DiCaprio, but beware spoilers if you haven't seen their movies yet.

Homosexualität im Fußball: "Wir brauchen keinen schwulen Märtyrer"
"Du schwule Sau" oder "Du Schwuchtel" wird jeder Fußball-Fan im Stadion schon einmal gehört haben. Das Wort "schwul" wird im Fußball als Verhöhnung der Gegner eingesetzt. Im Gegensatz zur Politik oder der Unterhaltungsbranche scheint der deutsche Fußball eine schwulenfreie Szene zu sein. Wir sprachen mit Mario Weiße, dem Chef des schwulen/lesbischen Fanklubs "Queerpass Bayern" über homosexuelle Fans, Outing und die Probleme in deutschen Stadien.

Yeah, I know I'm pretty much out of the footie fandom, but things like that still keep my attention and despite gmx being a horrible site, this is actually a decent article. Nothing quite new, but readable.

And last but not least: I wrote the first ~350 words of my fic for the Deutsch Big Bang. \o/ Haha, I know, it's not a lot, but considering the fact that I've been dancing around this for almost 2 months, this is huge progress. One of the reasons why I finally started writing might have been this tumblr post WHICH IS PRETTY MUCH THE START AND THE CLIMAX OF MY STORY. Asdfjlsjdlfkd. BRB, watching those gifs forever.

[livejournal.com profile] freaky_nea hat mir heute geschrieben, dass sie einen weiteren deutschen 3-Sätze-Ficathon organisiert hat! Den Post findet ihr hier in der [livejournal.com profile] querstrich Community:

Zweites deutsches 3 Sätze-Ficathon vom 1 bis zum 31. Mai

Wer also gerade Pause vom Big Bang Schreiben braucht oder nach dem Avengers-Film jede Menge Prompts loswerden will, sollte schleunigst vorbeischauen und mitmachen! Und gerne auch weitersagen, damit das Ganze genauso gut besucht und spaßig wie beim letzten Mal wird. :D

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.)

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.

It's a little telling when you rewatch Sherlock Holmes to get into the mood for the upcoming sequel, only to catch yourself thinking fondly "Oh, Tony" at several of Sherlock's antics. *facepalms* (Inventions! Genius! Obnoxiousness! Babbling!) Either my mind is too caught up with the Avengers or RDJ's Sherlock and Tony do have some similarities. Maybe a bit of both. But then, Sherlock doesn't seem the type for Tony's self-loathing.

Concerning the German 3-sentence-ficathon: I figured, what the heck, let's just do it. I'll put up an entry and we can just see how it goes from there, even if it might start out slow or not get much comments at all. Do you think between Christmas and New Year is a good or a bad timing? I mean, most people have vacation, but then, many might be busy with family or things like Yuletide ...

Heh, I just saw 3 Musketeers 3D and it was incredibly entertaining. The dialogues are hilariously bad (but that's what makes them great), the action scences are loads of fun and D'Artagnan was the cutest thing ever. *constantly wanted to pinch his cheeks* I guess a lot of people might hate it because it's so crazy and shallow, but since I've never seen a Musketeer movie before I could just enjoy it. It's a fun ride and I loved it. <3 (PS: Mila Jovovich's German dub-voice is the most terrible thing ever.)

3 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?

Have another html table and discover various patterns in my favourite characters )
