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.

duare: (coffe latte heart)
I blame fanfiction for my high expectation in finding love.
But I specially blame fanfiction on my high expectations in finding "the love of my life" working as a barista in a nice coffee shop.

Every single time a I go for a caffè on a coffee shop (and here I'm talking about a coffee shops that serves you more than your overall espresso, caffè with milk -yes, in Spain we have this, a latte is a different story- and "cortados") I expect to find that gorgeous man that smiles to me and decides to prepare me a different brewing different to what I asked for because "I'm gonna like it", or something like that. And yes, of course, I would come back for more coffees and we'd fall madly in love and have puppies, babies and roses.

And that's why I hate fanfiction sometimes.



First, we don't have that many "nice coffee shops" here in Spain (even in Barcelona!), we are more plain-cafeteria-kind. We have Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts and a few coffee shops that really know how to make a capuccino, a latte, or a real cafe mocha. Then we don't have "baristas" persé, we have a bunch of kids working part time while they are studying. And obviously they don't have imaginative people that makes you from the scratch a new mixed caffè just for you.

So yeah, I blame fanfiction. And now I might or might no be planing on going on a coffee shop hunting. I'm not probably going to find the love of my life but I seriously hope to find a place where they prepare a mean "caffè mocha with soy milk and no cream, thank you very much", damnit!

Oh! And all this rambling comes from my late yesterday night reading, the every fandom needs a coffee shop AU fic. And so far in Star Trek AOS this is Common Grounds (Summary: Modern day AU. Leonard McCoy tries online dating. A story of coffee, printing, and the Internet.) And of cousse never forget about the beautiful-but-I-hate-that-this-never-happens-to-me Inception coffee shop AU: I've Got Nothing To Do Today But Smile (The Only Living Boy in New York) (Arthur's a corporate lawyer, Eames owns the coffee shop across the street, and all good love stories start with a quadruple shot latte.)

So, coffee anyone? ;)

duare: (ST: K/M face)
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!

Or how to improve your fangirling level. Because an archive that let you download full fic in just one MOBI doc so you can read it right from your Kindle is absolutely love.

And I've got my account! Oh yeah! I don't know why I didn't get one of those before, but last week I though about it and [livejournal.com profile] aviss  was -as always- nice and wonderful enough to invite me.

I like the kuddos thing, and the bookmarks, which even if it's similar to the Fanfiction.net system is a little bit easier in its use.
So yeah, I'm compiling my AO3 recs also over there of course! And I also got my English fics uploaded.

Let the fun begin!

Y volvemos a la carga un año más. ¡Tercera edición del Amigo Invisible Sin Fronteras! ¡Tercera ya!
Lo peor es pensar que la 1ª del [livejournal.com profile] aisinfronteras  era la 4ª edición de [livejournal.com profile] la_torre , así que entre uno y otro sumamos ya 6 intercambios a nuestras espaldas. Mare meva com passa el temps!

Self-pimping porque nosotras lo valemos (y porque [livejournal.com profile] aviss  es la puta reina de los banners con fandoms que nos vuelven locas)


Entrando más en modo materno-administradora: ¡LAS NORMAS! Sí, esas grandes desconocidas de las que todos hablamos y tan pocos leemos. Leedlas pretty please y si algo no os queda claro, dejadnos un comentario o contactar con nosotras via el email del intercambio (aisinfronteras @ gmail . com). Y cuando os hayáis leído ya LAS NORMAS pues me vais directas al post  de NOMINACIÓN DE FANDOMS. Recordad, se pueden nominar como máximo 3 fandoms y uno al menos deber ser obligatoriamente de los que os ponemos en la lista.

¡Y no os ralléis aún con el formulario para apuntarse! No está aún colgado, no lo estará hasta mediados de agosto, y cuando lo colguemos lo explicaremos con pelos y señales para facilitaros las cosas. De todos modos, será muy parecido (sino igual) que el del año pasado, y como siempre si hay dudas: comentario o email.

Dream bigger, darlings!

I've just spent the last hour laughing like a catcall with this absolutely awesome and hilarious X-Men First Class AU fic:

I ♥ NY (It’s My Friends I’m Not Sure Of) by oddegg on AO3.
A fan-fucking-tastic ~18K WIP fic that has made my flatmate ask me if  I was alright, because you know... laugh alone on your own can be a symptom of dementia.

Was written originally for the kink meme (yeah, all the good stuff comes from there) and it's pretty much what the promt says, just well-written and gloriously funny.

Summary: Erik is a single, successful man who likes quick sex with no strings attached. Then, he meets college professor Charles and it's love at first sight, at least for him. Charles, who heard of Erik's notorious ways, wants nothing to do with him besides being friends. Cue Erik bending over backwards to steal Charles' heart.

Reasons to invest your time on  oh-bloody-hell-another-WIP-no:

-Have you read the tittle? How can you not love a fic with that kind of title? 
-Best  first sentence ever!
"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man, in possession of the honour of gracing both the Forbes 400 and the Post’s most eligible bachelor list in the same year, must be–”

“…About to kill his dear friend if she insists on spouting any more of that overworked cliché in his hearing?”

I mean, we are talking about Jane Austen here, this is serious busosiness people! You've got to love someone who knows hos to use the classics and be funny,

- Yeah, Erik and Charles are adorable, but OMG the friends and family. Special mentions to Az (aka Azazel) who is the manny -because if you are a man and work as a nanny you are obviously a manny- and Erik children.

And really I could go on and on and on, but I've just decided I want to re-read it again, so let me have my fun and I seriously hope you give this fic a chance. Yeah, I know the beware-of-WIPs but come on! Do you want to have a good laugh? Go to the fic you crazy women! 
duare: (Default)
 I love the kink memes, I really do. But they are a real pain in the ass to keep track of good fics, because seriously LJ:  why can I add a comment to my memories?

So, as that seems to be impossible, I'm going to need another way soooo... I've decided that while simple fics posted in LJ can still go to my memories, the kink stuff, and the fics posted  at AO3 or Fanfiction.net are going to be reced  from this post. A post that will go directly to my memories so it can be easily checked.

So here we go, X-Men First Class Fanficion Recommendation by me:

Try, try again by anon PG13 Completed (kink meme)
Prompt: Erik is forced to repeat that day until he stops being an asshole.

Wisteria by anon NC17 Completed (kink meme)
Erik hates being unable to hide just how much he wants Charles.

Trust by nyssa123 T Completed (FF)
AU- After Cuba, Erik decides not to leave. It's all different, now- as Charles adjusts to life in a wheelchair, Erik has to atone for what he's done. In real life, nothing is ever easy.

Any Measure of Peace by manic_intent R Completed (AO3) long fic 19387k
Written for the prompt: "AU in which there was no beach divorce. Charles has been throwing himself at Erik, but Erik refuses to give in to his desires. Something about not wanting to sully Charles' happy life with his darkness. He's done some things, you see. Some very bad things. Charles, however, is nothing if not persistent. So he seduces Erik with everything he's got. Erik suffers an epic case of blue balls."

Limited Release by anon PG-13 (so far) WIP (kink meme)
Alternate Universe |Based on: White Collar. And before you go running away let me tell you something: so far it has 29 parts plus 3 bonus and it's the most funny, hilarious and amazingly detailed fic that I've read in this fandom. So trust me, go to read it even if it's still unfinished. Just today I've already read it twice!
Summary: Alex is a criminal consultant for the FBI, Hank is Alex's loyal friend who tries to get him out of jail, Erik is the agent that caught Alex in the first place, Shaw is the bad guy, and Charles is Shaw's number one target. The kids are part of Erik's team!

Time to Grow by zarah5 R Completed (AO3) long fic 20964k
In which you'll find chess dates which aren't dates (or maybe Charles is wrong about that). – This follows First Class, but turns AU during the beach scene. 
This is beautifully well written, and it makes perfect sense. You can feel the UST and the pain and loss, and you can see the changes and they feel natural. Hell, even Charles lectures makes sense!

 I've finished the bloody fic for the [livejournal.com profile] dream_exchange  I 'm so happy and proud of myself^^

And now let' catch some sleep (only 4 hours... sigh...)
duare: (daniel not happy)
Sigh... I've been neglecting LJ so much lately. But really, I blame my muse(or the lack of her) and tumblr!
For once, my muse has been kicking my ass and I've been struggling so much with the [livejournal.com profile] dream_exchange , thankfully she's back and I'm on writing mood and it's all working all right.
I've also been avoiding Lj because... well, if I can't write I punish myself with no reading time either.
And then there's tumblr and if you have a tumblr account you know what I mean, and if you don't avoid it like the devil itself, because really, it suck your whole soul...

OH! Por cierto... participantes del [livejournal.com profile] aisinfronteras ,  ¿cómo llevamos los fics/arts? Que sepáis que os quedan 3 semanas y 5 días, ¿eh? ¿Eeh? ¿Eeeeeh?
duare: (no spoon_ravenclaw)
Porque todo lo bueno se acaba. Acabaron los libros y el fin de las películas se acera. ¿Y qué mejor manera de despedirnos de Harry Potter (del canon al menos) que con un gran BANG?

Bien, pues aquí lo tenemos: [livejournal.com profile] hpbigbang_es  

Nunca he participado en un Bang, en inglés aún voy con pies de plomo en lo que me apunto. Así que si no acabo nockeada total del NaNoWriMo y del [livejournal.com profile] aisinfronteras  a esto me apuntaré seguro. Sí, hasta el 1 del Diciembre para apuntarme, lo sé...  ¡Pero ei! El nanowrimo termina el 31 de Noviembre, así que queda clavado. Total, la historia ya la tengo y todo, y hace tiempo que me apetecía sacarme esa espinita así que esta es la oportunidad perfecta.

Así que damas y caballeros (sí, los pocos que hay por aquí), ¡pasen y vean!

duare: (Default)
Sorry for the delay, but I've been busy with other net-workings stuff, in this case my blog and the [livejournal.com profile] aisinfronteras  account and sign-ups, but here we are again. Doing another big catch up of several days.

Day 13 A fictional book ~ Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. Do I need to say anything else?
Day 14 A non-fictional book ~  Invictus by  John Carling
It's the last one I've read and I loved it, I love the mix of politics, history and sport awesomeness. It made me feel a hurricane of emotions and that's what a good book should do.
Day 15 A fanfic ~ Just one? Ok, I'm going to say THE ONE that got me down the rabbit hole: Irresistible Poison by Rhyssen And 7 years after I read it, I'm still into fandom
Day 16 A song that makes you cry (or nearly) ~ Lux Aeterna by Clint Mansell
Gods... that song! Every single time I listen it is like the first time all over again. My skin all goose bumped, and be still oh heart of mine!
 


Day 17 An art piece (painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.) ~Lake Keitele by Akseli Gallen-Kallela.
Amazing piece of art... It'  just look at it and I feel calm again. I have an small print, bur one of these days I'm going to buy the biggest print ever, one of my white walls on my room is waiting for it actually.

That's I've been waiting for since I discovered the Inception fandom: a kind-of secret santa exchnage!!!
Four wonderful and crazy people, because you need to be crazy to organize that kind of event  -Been there, done that every fucking year and it's madness, lovely awesome madness but madness nonetheless - have created [livejournal.com profile] dream_exchange 

The community  will house the Inception Slash Gift Exchange, "an anonymous gift exchange fest for fanfiction and fanart focused on slash pairings from the movie Inception"
Sign ups for Round 1 begin on Monday the 16th of August at 6pm BST

duare: (OMG Kirk)
Went to London and I came back. Thanks lord I'm still on holidays.
On those few days away: watched a unbelievable fucking amazing movie, fell in love with that same movie and rediscovered why I love fandom so much.


Welcome to Inception and its wonderful fandom!




duare: (maybelline)
I'm still trying to decide my nominations but if you have ever read some fics from this fandom, and you have a few saved in your favourite, now is the time to share the love!



Y cambiando diagonalmente de tema, me gusta este banner en concreto y también toda la gama de banners similares que han hecho... A ver si se me ocurre algo parecido para el [livejournal.com profile] aisinfronteras
duare: (JJ oookay...)
Sólo para que lo vayáis teniendo en mente... [livejournal.com profile] aviss , [livejournal.com profile] gaia_naturae  y yo hemos decidido repetir la experiencia del Amigo Invisible Multifandom (AIMF) en [livejournal.com profile] aisinfronteras  Será la quinta edición si contamos las 3 anteriores HarryPotterocéntricas, ¡quién no lo iba a decir hace 5 años!
En breve os postearemos una entrada para que nos comentéis qué os pareció la organización de la anterior edición, en qué creéis que debemos mejorar y a ser posible darnos también sugerencias de cómo arreglarlo.
Lo que sea con tal de hacer del AIMF un evento más divertido, ameno y para que discurra con el mínimo de problemas posibles.

Btw, a las más elejoteras os agradeceríamos que llegado el momento nos hicierais un poquito de publi haciendo correr la voz entre vuestras respectivas flists. Como ya sabéis, al ser multifandom queremos llegar al mayor número de personas con gustos diferentes.

Pues eso, kisses y  ya iréis recibiendo más noticias nuestras (si pensabais que este año os librabais lo lleváis claro)
duare: (you know it)
Está en todas partes, hasta en facebook! Y ha sido ver la foto y ver los comentario en el LJ de [livejournal.com profile] maraweasley  que al ponerme a contestar me ha salido esto XD A pelo, sin beta "ni nadená, ¿paqué?" Es que los ingleses (especialmente los pijos) son muy suyos con las palbras y expresiones XDDD


"You are a Malfoy" Albus said in a childish and accusatory tone, "my uncle/dad/mum/whatever say all the Malfoys are bad"
"Well, better be bad than munchkins like your parents" Scorpius replied with a disdainful look.
"What?" Albus exclamed.
"Oh! I beg your pardon, how very unpolite of me, to use such a rude word... " Scorpious said, a sweetly mocking smile on his lips. "What I wanted to say is, better bad than vertically challenged" And with these words, he turned around and went to look for compartment to sit comfortably, leaving an open-mouthed Albus behind him.

Less than a week to finish my fic for the [livejournal.com profile] satedan_grabass  thing-a-thon!!!!!
I'm not panicking, not at all, really. As a my very good friend [livejournal.com profile] aviss  told me "1000 palabras se escriben con la punta de la polla"
Oh damn! I don't have one of those!!!!
duare: (bloqueo escritor)
The writing process is going a bit more slowly than I though, which means I'm going to need to hurry up in the end (like always, I don't even know why this surprise me anymore). But, it's just that there's so much to do...
I've already sent my Christmas as I promised --this morning actually--, a whole pack of 21 postcards... My hand was sore... especially after I decided to use my sealing wax.
I've backed 64 little cheese pastries (I'll post some pictures after all the family gatherings where there would be a lot more plates to take pictures of).
And I'm still trying to write.
I've also done my schedules posts in [livejournal.com profile] aisinfronteras .
I need to write but I prefer to wait for some update. I need a nice update of one of the many WIP I'm reading!!! Come on!

Oh! And my gift in [livejournal.com profile] cm_exchange  has already been posted, it's the sweetest thing^^ You can read it here (a Hotch/Reid all for myself! I am oh so happy!!!)

And I'm still trying to write... The bad thing about knowing what you are going to write is that you don't feel the rush to do it because, hei! You already know what is going to happen, so why bother? Grrr... Stupid lazy muse...
