Hiii, I'm alive. And I need fic advice, among the rest  
1. *waves* How are things? Sorry if I'm half-scarce but between writing a lot of stuff I should have finished ages ago and studying I'm mostly commenting and I'm checking the FL but not commenting on everything. :/ At least in a month I'll be done, hopefully. Ew.

2. Anyway, exam #2 done, went fine, now I have Marx next week, the Aesthetics complicated one on the 12th and pedagogy some time after that which I still haven't decided on, oops. Freedom, your taste will be great, when I actually get to you.

3. I am probably one of the three people -not- following the World Cup at-all. I think that at the moment football is totally being burned out of me but well, I have enough of it during the championship. Still, I hope someone who isn't an important team wins. All I have to say on the topic.

4. I'm almost done with editing my spn_j2_bigbang... which I have to post NEXT TUESDAY. Why am I always so-freaking-late? *headdesk* At least it's the day after the exam so I won't have anything looming on my head.

5. That said, I need advice for my deancasbigbang whose rough draft is due a week earlier than I thought so while I already have 9200 words of it and I -can- whip it by then... I can use some input. So, poll under the cut. Btw, it's Wings Of Desire Dean/Cas flavor, so if you've seen the movie, too, I could definitely use your input.

Poll #1581730 ff I need fic advice ;_;

Suggest me a group which Dean would like, likely to perform in a small venue?

Castiel in an armor is:

hot as fuck
can be hot, but just if you really pull it off

My early idea was: Peter Falk = JDM. Y/n?

It's AU, find someone from SPN and keep it AU
Why not?

[Explanations: I need two groups for question #1, one of which should replace Nick Cave because while he could have played a small venue in Berlin in 1987 I doubt he'd play a small one in LA in the present day; I'm not too keen on Cas + armor but angel with armors is a kind of pivotal point and I've read it around so idk, input ;__;?; re three, well, there's a real actor in the original movie playing that part but now I'm wondering if I should drag RPS into this or not. So. Thanks for any advice?]

6. Btw, as soon as I'm done with the bigbang #1 madness, I'm starting to post my hope_in_sight fic. I delayed it for too long and even if I'm about 2/3 into it and I hate posting WIPs which I haven't finished I know where it's going and I have enough to keep going for a couple of weeks at least. So eh, expect a bunch of fic spamming in the next month or so. :/

7. I had my job schedules! I'm up for one day each week for the entire month and then I'll probably be for the first week of August, too, but since it's light I have an idea it means it'll be way heavier in September. Which is good because I'll just be thesis-writing. I just hoped for more hours in order to get the free exercising but eeh, I guess it'll be for the fall.

8. Hiiii new friends from spnland! <33 Also, er, it seems like I'm a broken record lately, but... three/four people who friended me in the last week without notifying me, do you want me to add you back? I don't bite. ;)

9. Stonehenge Apocalypse was every bit as awesomely bad as I expected it to be. It's kind of not encouraging that in between Marx and Modern History it was kind of the highlight of my month but eee, finals time is never what I'd call exciting. And this entry is random but since someone also nudged me because I had been in radio silence for a week *cough you know who you are cough* I figured that random was better than nothing, mm? ;) How are you all? I swear I'll catch up soon-ish. Very possibly soon-ish.

10. By the way, it was a robot head. Sorry, that one was #9 related, but don't mind it. I'll have it out of my system hopefully soon enough.

Hi there!! :D okay, adding you back. ;)

Freedom, your taste will be great, when I actually get to you.

YAY! I'll count down the days for you.

I saw a little bit of the Italy vs. New Zealand game on Sunday as it was playing in the hotel breakfast room. I wasn't even sure who was who!
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on June 21st, 2010 10:28 pm (UTC)
Eee, thanks! :D If it was for me I'd put that at the 12th, but I don't want pedagogy to loom over my head until the fall...

LOL, from what I gathered they both played badly as hell ;) anyway we're the ones with the blue shirt. I didn't even tune in but I can get what happens from people screaming outside anyway...

Hey stranger!

Good to see you around, I keep meaning to drop you a letter but life here is NUTS!

*sending hugs and kisses*
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on June 21st, 2010 10:29 pm (UTC)
Hiii! And same thing here too, eeeewww. I'll try to do that because I've been wanting to do it for ages but fff, RL can so be nuts. <3

I'm not really a fan of RPF/FPF mixes, so I voted to keep it all fictional, though you could probably pull it off as a x-over. I would read it either way.

Since I know nothing about 70s & 80s metal other than what I've heard on SPN I can't answer your first question. Oh, I know, how about Iggy Pop? He might possibly play a moderately-sized divey punk nightclub. Although, punk not metal so maybe not to Dean's taste.

Good for you for getting so much writing done while at the same time having exams! You must have superpowers or something!
the female ghost of tom joad: IDK WHAT MISHA DIDjanie_tangerine on June 21st, 2010 10:34 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm not a fan of that either which is why I'm re-thinking that, but the on the other side I can't find anyone plausible enough in the SPN bunch either. If I can't come up with anything better I might use JDM but implying it's him and not mentioning the name I think.

And ha, while I'm kind of well-versed in that genre I just can't come up with anyone who's still around. Though Iggy Pop isn't bad at all! And ha, well, Dean does like blues and he did sort of branch out from metal at times so I might definitely consider it, thanks!

Fff, it's the secret breaks technique. When taking a break from studying, instead of doing anything healthy like taking a walk, write fic. It sort of does work. Mostly. ;)
Carmexgirlcarmexgirl on June 21st, 2010 08:25 pm (UTC)
Cas in armour = teh SEXX! Also, Wolfmother were the only band I could think of that Dean could conceivably like, but then, I don't know how big they are in the USA (I'm guessing like Britain, not very) so you'll probaly have to check it out.

Stonehenge apocalypse was the best and worst thing I have seen all year. Seriously, the terrible accents and the CGI Stonehenge? Brilliant. And it was most definitely a robot head. :D
the female ghost of tom joad: IT WAS A ROBOT HEADjanie_tangerine on June 21st, 2010 10:36 pm (UTC)
*G* good to know it's sexy because there's a bit in that movie which would be hard to change and keeping the armor would probably save me a lot of time and effort and brainstorming, lol. And uuuh, sounds like a good idea! I have a friend who loves them who always says they're kind of Zeppelin style... and I don't need them to be big so I could totally ask her to pass me something, thank you! :D

Oh, IT WAS SO MUCH. Bless Syfy for making horrible like no one else.

When restless, browse LJ. Have a last quick comment.

#3 And you're from Italy, HDU even? ;) I know and care so much about football that I used a Juventus umbrella in Rome. Sorry? It was from a previous trip to N. Italy; you know, when you're like I need an umbrella right the frak now and will take anything you have. Anyway, I suppose I'm rooting for Denmark. Not quite a neighbour, but still a Nordic country.

Truth to be told, I'm not keen on Cas in armour. But I absolutely trust you to handle it well, if you decide to do it. You are, after all, somebody who's made me read the unlikeliest things (D&C get married - also, God is there; The Queer Con with Desmond and Sawyer etc.). Sorry, IDK anything about any music scene. Seriously, except for a certain artist.

Exam and writing luck your way.
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural castiel is a bamfjanie_tangerine on June 21st, 2010 10:39 pm (UTC)
Eeee! *takes comment*

Fff. I DON'T CARE. FOOTBALL IS EVERYTHING I HEAR ABOUT DURING THE YEAR, I DON'T NEED AN EXTRA MONTH. And when we won last time THEY TALKED ABOUT FOOTBALL THE ENTIRE SUMMER EEEW. I wanted to kill somebody, lol. And oh God, how did you even manage not to get skinned alive GOING AROUND WITH A JUVENTUS UMBRELLA IN HERE? XDD I bow, really. ;)

Tbh I'm not keen on that either but angels having armors is kind of pivotal in that and changing it would require too much hassle/brainstorming and idek what I should go for instead. And I won't resort to whatever they updated it to in City Of Angels because I loathe that movie, oops. And ha, well, I'll make it my mission to make you like that. ;)

Thank you!! :D
Anasnowweisz on June 21st, 2010 08:57 pm (UTC)
The world cup so far has been hit and miss. Half the time it's really, and I mean REALLY boring. And then every other day there is a match that takes my breath away. But yeah... idk nothing too amazing has happened so you're not missing out. jsyk.
the female ghost of tom joad: JEAAAARRRSSSSjanie_tangerine on June 21st, 2010 10:41 pm (UTC)
Thanks for that. ;) I just, here in Italy you hear about football pretty much for the entire championship even if you don't care and after the last WC when they won it was AN ENTIRE YEAR of it and fff, most times I just can't bring myself to watch anything. But from what I read it hasn't been anything too special so good for me I guess? ;)

Yeah FML MUCH TOO? I'm just glad that I know I won't get too 20000. I just don't have enough plot to get there even if I wanted. And yeah, from what I know about it you're in for an epic, lol. And thanks! :D I'm just so glad I'm following a movie with the most basic plot ever, lol. And ha, I'm almost done with that, which means bad news for you probably, but I swear I'll try not to write you a novel-length e-mail when I send it over again.

I've been told Wolfmother for now, which sound like a good option even if I'm not familiar with them (but I'll put a remedy to it xD) and apparently I -could- get away with Nick Cave, but if you come up with anyone else he might want to pay a ticket for... ;)
imora_mi_savurimora_mi_savur on June 21st, 2010 09:30 pm (UTC)
Okay so the Cas in armour thing is a bit of a personal fetish of mine but it's more the old greco-roman breastplate and leather kilt than full 'armour'.

Personally I would use JDM rather than Peter Falk in this instance just because of the audience, the familiarity of JDM is more likely to evoke a responce from the readers.

Nick Cave has been known to do the odd LA gig, they're just super small and hush hush, very under publisized (and very Nick Cave lets be honest ;p) They're mostly promo'd by emails to known local fans.

Gonna go back to stressing over mine now. I have 2 bigbangs running at the same time *facepalm*
imora_mi_savurimora_mi_savur on June 21st, 2010 09:32 pm (UTC)
Though if I was writing just for myself... Peter Falk FTW! ;p

hello, hello! that's a lot of studying and writing! no wonder you are not around LJ much. plus, it's summer!

I can't help much with the questions as I don't know the movie, but the idea of Castiel in armor is definitely of the "yes please!" variety. mmmmm.

I still haven't seen Stonehenge apocalypse, but it's on my HD =D

oh, by the way, I'm with you in not following the Wold Cup. because 1) soccer *ducks* 2) no time and not interest! let's not watch it together!
the female ghost of tom joad: misha collins AT JIBjanie_tangerine on June 21st, 2010 10:49 pm (UTC)
Fff, it is sadly. I want to be in a country where finals are over in May like apparently everywhere people in college in my FL are from. :/

Good to know! LOL, I just wanted to know if other people liked it because I'm kind of indifferent and I never saw much the appeal but in that movie the armor thing is pivotal and changing it would require too much effort, so I'll just learn to like it. ;) ;)

WATCH IT! Your world will be so much crackier after you do. *cough*

Yaaay, SOMEONE ELSE! I don't have time either tbh, but I already get football talked everywhere during the regular championship, for me this means just 'OH GOD NO MORE FOOTBALL PLEASE KILL ME'. So let's not! ;)
inthekeyofd: Sawyer-superfly-stutterms NON-SHAREABLEinthekeyofd on June 21st, 2010 11:49 pm (UTC)
seriously, I don't know how you do it. I have a ton of things to do, but what you manage to accomplish, it's freakin' amazing!!!

Soccer, is it wrong that I watch for the hot guys?? I'd have Juventus season tickets just for the hot guys I swear.

But then again, I'm a hockey fan, but that moves much quicker and it's a much smaller playing field ;)
the female ghost of tom joad: lost sawyer *g*janie_tangerine on June 23rd, 2010 07:44 am (UTC)
Ff, I'm just good at multitasking. I think. Which I guess isn't that bad. ;)

Oh no, it isn't. If only I wasn't sick of football being the main topic of conversation/interest of this country I'd totally watch that for the hot guys too. ;) And ha, hockey is awesome! Surely I'd rather have that for a change, but around here it's not the most popular thing. :/

the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on June 23rd, 2010 07:44 am (UTC)
Eeee, thank you! :D I just hope it's done soon, ff. I want to be on vacation already. ;)

Stonehenge Apocalypse was every bit as awesomely bad as I expected it to be.

It sure was. I swear Misha was trying not to laugh at some point!

And it sure was a robot head. I don't think we'll get it out of our systems soon, though. I still randomly say it. At work. To people I've just met. Did you know I'm apparently crazy?
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on June 23rd, 2010 07:47 am (UTC)
I swear Misha was trying not to laugh at some point!

TOTALLY. But he also can't say that the role wasn't cut for him. *coughcough*

FFF IT WAS A ROBOT HEAD and I'm not doing that either. I totally say it at random too though I'll try not to when I have an exam next week because I totally could be tempted.

To people I've just met. Did you know I'm apparently crazy?

No, you're my hero. :DDD
valhalla37valhalla37 on June 22nd, 2010 11:55 pm (UTC)
3. Heee, I wasn't following it either, and then it was on TV, and now ... well, I don't know if "following" is the word, but apparently I like to pick underdog teams at random and cheer for them. Except for North Korea -- that was BRUTAL the other day.

5. Wow! I know it's been about a decade since I'd seen Wings of Desire, but apparently my memory isn't what it used to be -- I did not get either of those references, lol, so I can't be too much help with the poll. Yikes, need to go re-rent, apparently!
the female ghost of tom joad: AWESOME!janie_tangerine on June 23rd, 2010 07:50 am (UTC)
Underdog teams are good! That's who I root for on automatic anyway. And ff yeah I've read about it on the newspaper, poor North Korea! (I'd have rather had South Korea being on the receiving end because they totally cheated when it was held there but eh, back then I still cared about football and I still remember it, errr.)

Well you can't remember a basically plot-less movie when you saw it ten years ago, right? ;) It was mainly regarding the fact that when angels fall they receive their armor falling on their heads and apparently pawn it to get some money and about Peter Falk being the famous actor who was also a fallen angel and a idk who I should cast instead. ;) But re-renting is good! That movie is worth it anyway, lol. ;)
lover all alone: Lost: Dr. Gigglesinvisiblelove on June 23rd, 2010 05:23 am (UTC)
LOL yeah I don't care about the World Cup either. My brother and dad will be watching it and I'm just like .......... I'm just sort of hopeless about sports in general. They were huge at my university and I'd just be all "yeaaaaah ... don't care" ;)

OMGGGGGG you have so much fic coming up! *bows down to your fic-writing prowess* And as to Cas in armor? I say WHY THE HELL NOT? :p

Oh my GOODNESS, Stonehenge Apocalypse. That was SO awesomely bad.

And it was indeed a robot head.
the female ghost of tom joad: IT WAS A ROBOT HEADjanie_tangerine on June 23rd, 2010 07:52 am (UTC)
Sports = CRAP most times if you ask me, but until it's the Olympics I see them. Football is just... THE MAIN TOPIC IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE IN THIS COUNTRY mostly, and I'm so thoroughly sick of it during the year that the WC is just... ANOTHER MONTH of added football. Which is like, DO NOT WANT.

Ha, awesome! I'll chalk it and just go and not change it from the original. I'm too lazy. ;) And ha, I just wish I actually FINISHED something. Tho well, I'm posting the bigbang next week so I guess I WILL post something soon, of all that.
