Feel free to friend me if you think you can find something interesting on my lj; I'll probably friend you back if I know you from somewhere / have something in common with you. I enjoy a good discussion, so don't be afraid to comment, I don't bite. If you're friending me, please, drop me a comment here, so that I can say "hello" properly :).

Most of my fandom-related entries are open (unless they contain so much incoherent squee that I feel I'm losing the last scraps of my dignity. Again). All fics are open. I write both in Polish and in English, but lately I've been trying to keep most of my The Vampire Diaries posts in English. Fics are mostly in Polish, but there are some exceptions. The rest, I'm afraid, is random.

There may be a lot of spam happening this weekend - I finally have time to sort things out, finish my Secret Santa fic, answer all the things that's been piling up for three days and post all the things that's been piling up as well. So here goes a meme a took from [ profile] dante_kent:

Favourite character:
Least Favourite character:
5 Favourite ships (canon or non-canon):

Ok, so friends of mine made this vid as a project for their Multimedia class, so I was just going to pimp it to help them get the required number of views (they need 5000 to pass), but forget it. That's not why I'm posting it. I'm posting it, because it's bloody AMAZING, and it made me WANT TO SE S2 RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW, WHAT DO YOU MEAN I CAN'T??????

Here you have a fan-made s2 GoT trailer. Watch and cry:

So. [ profile] youcallitwinter is watching Buffy, and suddenly half of my flist is getting sentimental and rewatching random episodes. I say - let's throw a party!

In comments, give me up to five episodes. But! I want a special kind of episodes. Tell me about the episodes you wanted to rewatch, but never really did it, for various reasons. The episodes you don't remember very well, but you are sure you loved them. The episodes you'd like to rewatch, because you think that now you'd look at them differently. In short: give me Buffy episodes that are not rewatched often enough. I'll make a list, and somewhere around Christmas Eve/Christmas Day I'll post short reviews of the five episodes chosen most often, and set up a discussion post. Let's say I'm waiting for votes until Dec 20th, because I need time to actually do the rewatch ;).

So, who wants to play?


And a random request. I still have some free spots on my Big Damn 2012 Writing Project, so if anyone would like to prompt a fic, you are more than welcome. Even if you already prompted one.
semele: ([tvd] Damon/Elena z butami)
I'm terribly late with fics for the meme, but I have this awkward feeling that if I was late with the meta, my head would roll (I'm looking at you, Frances), so here I am. The post is freakishly long, which may or may not imply that I have no life. I regret nothing. The banner was made for me by [ profile] juana_a for another Damon/Elena meta, and I'm shamelessly recycling. The title comes from Richard Siken's “Litany in Which Certain Things Are Crossed Out”. The screencaps I'm using belong to ladymanson. The thoughts, I'm afraid, are mine.

Banner made by [ profile] juana_a. Quote from "Little Lion Man" by Mumford And Sons.

My first instinct was to write this meta chronologically. Just describe step by step how this relationship was developing, and end with a big speculation paragraph explaining how, obviously, my idea for future Damon/Elena is the only acceptable idea ;). But then: I've read metas like that. They were damn good metas. I might have two or three new things to add, but not enough to make this post worth reading for anyone who is at least remotely interested in the ship; we've been through the whole “Damon tries to seduce her to mess with Stefan => she shows compassion => Georgia => Katherine not in the tomb etc” thing, haven't we? So that's not how this meta is going to work. Screw chronology. Let's talk about themes.

Warnings: This is a Damon/Elena meta prompted by [ profile] ever_neutral for my December Meme of Doom. No functional relationships will be found in this post. No shipwars will be found in this post. Not enough graphics will be found in this post, because I have no Photoshop skills :(. All the romantic delusions that can be found in this post belong solely to Damon. Oh, and there are spoilers up to TVD 3x09.

Love Always Wakes the Dragon )

And, finally, some recs. Because I actually, you know, treated this meta seriously, so I've been reading things, and talking to people.

— There were two amazing Damon/Elena discussions on my own journal; they just came out of nowhere and consumed a few days of my life. They're both pretty chaotic, but if anyone is interested, it's scattered around those posts: click click.

[ profile] ever_neutral wrote an incredible Damon/Elena meta after s2: All You've Done is Give Up. When I was writing my post, I was trying very hard not to mention things covered by Alex, because why would I copy-paste?

[ profile] laniaaa wrote an awesome meta explaining why she ships Damon/Elena and how Damon is a horrible person: very big, very long discussion on why i ship my otp, and why i sometimes hate it .

If you have some more D/E discussion or meta recs, please do tell :).

This meme is so incredible I don't even...

'Tis the season to make a million memes to let everyone know just how much you appreciate them and love them.

Comment with your username and people will comment anonymously with things they love and cherish about you. Stay anonymous simply because it makes the atmosphere lighter and more mysterious, kind of like a Secret Santa only with love and holiday cheer! People will wonder who these caring people are and appreciate the fact that they exist, not only the fact that they may be best friends with them.

Then find people you care about and have something nice to say to - even if you don't know them! - and leave them something that will make their heart feel a little warmer at night. This way, the love will go around and around and the magical spirit of the season can be cherished and appreciated by all.

Don't forget to tell others about your thread and the meme!

The Big Damn 2012 Writing Project

Since I'm the kind of writer who works best when being enabled, I come begging for prompts bearing gifts. I'm taking requests for next year, and the rules are ridiculously simple:

1. Give me a prompt (character/pairing + summary/song/quote/poem) and a month. Any fandom I'm familiar with is a fair game, but if you prompt something I'm not really comfortable with, I will ask you to reconsider ;).

2. I will write you a fic that is min. 1000 words long and post it according to schedule: one fic per month. I'll also take 6 freelance prompts with no specific deadline, which makes a total number of 18 fics to be posted in 2012.

3. If I decide that your prompt would make the most awesome Vampire Big Bang ever written, I'll shamelessly remove it from my schedule, put there one of the freelance prompts, and give you your fic when Big Bang posting happens.

So, who wants to play?

I blame [ profile] dante_kent and her Christmas spirit.

I know it's a bit early for Christmasy stuff, but on December 6th people in my country celebrate St Nicholas Day, which basically means that we sneak into children's bedrooms when they're asleep and we hide small gifts for them to find in the morning. I don't know how many of you guys celebrate it too, but I thought it would be a perfect excuse for me to be a troll tonight ;). So let's have a treat:


This gif isn't mine, but I certainly wish it was

1. It's Christmas, so everybody lives.
2. Pics, gifs and vampire versions of Christmas carols are more than welcome.
3. Much silliness can be found in this post.
4. Don't get blood on the couch.

I finally managed to make myself a decent masterpost of everything fannish I've ever written, both in Polish and in English. It should be complete and up to date. I certainly hope it is... I figured that if I don't make it now, I won't be able to make heads or tails out of it after the December meme. If you spot a link that does not work, please let me know :).

[ profile] dante_kent and I were thinking how many people from TVD fandom have some vampires in their past. And there is no better way to find out than a poll!

We'd like answers from the people who are/were into TVD fandom (reading/writing fic, taking part in discussions, reading/writing meta; LURKING ALSO COUNTS!*).

*Btw, this is also how "being in Buffyverse fandom" is defined in the poll. Even if you were just lurking, it counts!

[Poll #1799456]
semele: ([tvd] Damon/Elena z butami)
I've had this phase before, and I got over it. But today [ profile] ever_neutral gave me some recs, and I started reading, and I'm sort of obsessed again. I was supposed to make a TVD Christmas Speculation Post, but it can wait, it's still November ;). Vamp!Elena is in my head RIGHT NOW!

Welcome back, obsession. I sort of missed you.

Here I speculate about fanfiction )

This post contains A Song of Ice and Fire books spoilers.

Comment to this post, and I will list five things I associate with you. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your LJ (or just add a reply back to me). Other people (including me) can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

So, [ profile] ever_neutral gave me:

non-functional Damon/Elena, Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, Jon/Robb, fic-writing, teaching )
semele: ([tvd] Damon/Elena z butami)
It seems that I'm done with all the comment ficathon fics I wanted to write, so I'm just going to post them here before it occurs to me to write yet another one.

The Vampire Diaries Free-For-All Comment Ficathon is hosted by [ profile] softly_me, who should be eternally loved and worshiped for doing such an amazing thing. If you want to read some more, masterlist by pairing/character can be found here.

For the entire week I was totally behaving like this crazy shipper person; I didn't even know I could write so much Damon/Elena in such a short time. Oh well. I regret nothing.

Warning: since ratings and warnings are not required in places where I usually post, I'm not sure if I got them right. It's all pretty angsty, so theoretically I should warn and everything, but then it feels so silly to warn for angst in TVD... So if you spot that I made a mistake, could you please let me know?

Everything was written after TVD 3x09 Homecoming, so, to be on the safe side, let's say that this is how far the spoilers go.

It was already established that I'm the worst shipper in the world, but right now I'm also a bored shipper, so I'm having this guessing game I wasn't supposed to have. Snatched from everyone around. Some descriptions are based on quotes, some on my opinions/wishful thinking. Have fun!

(1) Think of up to 25 ships you support.
(2) List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
(3) Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.

Riddles! )

I finished my fourth story for the comment ficathon, and I thought that would be it. I woke up this morning, and welcome, plotbunny! Not that I'm complaining, but I can't help but feel slightly amused with myself.
