I've got an extra pack of 100 icon I don't remember buying (or getting as a present neither), so now instead of the 100/120 icons I though I had, I've got space to 80 extra icons till the 202 it seems I've paid for. 
I am soooooooooooo happy! Now I can upload tons of lovely icons of my latest addictions. I've already started with some Generation Kill, because Nate Fick (HBO character played by Stark Sands) has the most beautiful green eyes I've even seen.

So I finally decided not to sign up to the Avengers exchange because lately I've been jumping from fandom to fandom, and surfing through a fandom which usually makes me jump to another fandom that I don't feel like I would be faithful enough to my love for Tony and Steve to be able to fullfill my assignment.

But let's talk about the wonderful world of fandom. I love discovering new fandom, I really do! But do you know what I love even more than discovering a new fandom? Go back to an old one to catch up with all the new stuff.


Beware! Random thoughts & hot men )

And I haven't written an update since November (bad me, baaaaaaad!). It's nothing out of the norm, LJ and I... we have this weird love-ignorance kind of relationship. I mean, I love it because it give me tons of fics to read but I ignore it because I usually have tons of other stuff to do and other blogs/social-whatever to update.

Just wanted to say that yes I'm still reading ST fic (just check my memories! I believe I crossed the 25 saves line yesterday) and I am as well absolutely in love with NCIS because it brings me the possibility to read either slash, gen or het and that's just awesome!

Anyway, I needed to write some words here because it's been the kind of day that remembers me why I love fandom & fanfiction as a hobby so much: it's cheap, it's funny, it's weird, and just when you think you've got it all figured out then it comes and surprise you all over again.

Like becoming bi-shipper on a fandom you though you were one-ship-kind-of-girl.
In [livejournal.com profile] aviss favor, I had to say that the fic of awesomeness is like the best thing ever. Ok, it may be one of the two best things ever!
Observations (by [livejournal.com profile] anon_j_anon) Is the K/S perfect fic, and Switch (by [livejournal.com profile] ceres_libera)is its perfect counterpart on the K/M side.

If I could I'd gladly do a ménage à trois with both fics. Just saying.

And here I am now, doing background research and planing time lines, plots and bunnies for that crazy friend of mine. But to who am I lying? I'm enjoying every bloody minute of it, goddammit!

Wonderful [livejournal.com profile] dreamlittleyo (who was one of my favourite Inception authors and the best Cob/Arthur writers) is also writing ST:XI fics.
I think it's a conspiracy!
Favourite authors, best fics ever (will talk about this another day), funny icons, hot guy... oh please kill me now!

The day before to my trip to Vietnam and Cambodia I downloaded several different fandoms fics to my kindle. I had the intention to just download the longest fics from the two fandoms I was reading at the moment (X-Men: First Class and Inception), but just decided to download some Criminal Minds as well. And then something caught my attentions: Star Trek
AO3 has a large supply of Star Trek fics of all the series and universes.
So why not I asked myself. Just the largest or with more hits in case I read all the other fics.

There was one that it picked my curiosity (So Wise We Grow by Deastar) and for some reason, once I was at the airport waiting to my flight to Warsaw (where I was to meet with [livejournal.com profile] aviss and Mb), I decided to start reading it instead of all the other fics.

At this point I have to say that I was in no way a foreign to ST fandom and universe. I'd watched TOS and TNG as a kid in the Catalan TV, I later watched some episodes of Voyager on the local TV. And after the reboot movie (which I loved it) I got into the fandom for a little while, reading some K/S fics and some gen fics. But I let it go quite easily, as I belive I was, at the time immersed, in other fandoms.

The thing is, I finished So Wise We Grow in my second day in Vietnam and instead of going for another fandom I decided to go on reading all I had downloaded of Star Trek. And when I run out of ST fics, I went to AO3 and downloaded a few more, and at the return flights I decided to close the circle reading the fic that made me began my travel no just around the Great Mekong.

A here we are now... feeling like maybe I've found a new home, a fandom large and resilient enough as once upon a time it was for me the Harry Potter fandom. I bought The Original Series' DVD, I'm getting my hand in The Next Generation, and I'm reading. I'm reading like I have not read in a very long time. And oh my! There are fics and FICS, and I'll talk about this capital thing another day but let's just say that I might have already found my cup of tea in this fandom.

Dif-tor heh smusma
