birthdays! + a couple random flash things  
Ee, happy Bastille day AND, most important, happy birthday to toestastegood and mollivanders!! <3333 I hope the both of you are having a lovely time and that next year is amazing for the both of you because you totally are awesomeness and you deserve that. In the former's case I hope it's filled with exams dealing with Lucifer lore, Titus Welliver starring somewhere he gets top bill, and also with John Winchester resurrecting (and I so can't wait to meet you! ♥), while in the latter's case I most definitely hope you get as much hat porn on Justified (which I will have to watch sooner or later..), politics getting less bitchy to deal with and awesome people guest starring on the vampire porn. ;) Happy birthday to the both of you again! And if you want to prompt me I'll see what I can do. (Even if I know what toestastegood might want.. which she will get eventually, I hope. ;) ) <3333


Also, random stuff that doesn't deserve bullet points: my Lost fic apparently reminds that generator everyone knows about of Stephen King, my LJ posts are like Margaret Atwood and my SPN porn is similar to Nabokov. At least it's all people I like, even if the only one which probably is half-right is King. Or at least, I've been told that my style DID resemble is ages ago, but then again it was Dark Tower fic. Still, my capslock posts being like Atwood is hilarious.

And since I'm an idiot and forgot to say, thanks so much siluria for the Deadwood postcard!!!!!!!! It totally made my day when it arrived. :DDD


Okay, I'm back on brainstorming on luau catching up. But, last thing, if you haven't seen The Beguiled, then I highly recommend it. For not entirely shallow reasons, I swear. ;)

Okay, that was all. *waves*
feeling: okayokay

You are lovely. ♥ And, heh, I will be predictable and ask for either John/Castiel, Lucifer/Esau or any Charlie slash. You know I always love anything you come up with!

You are as well. ;) ♥ And who knows. I might breach out and give you some Lucifer/Esau again. ;) ;) ;) <33333333333333 since we already agreed on the John/Cas thing. ;)

Margaret Atwood is great. :D It doesn't sound that far-fetched. And King, cool!

To be the Dan Brown of fic writing and the JK Rowling of essay writing is - less great. Although, Wodehouse for a random LJ post was probably surprisingly accurate. But - apart from essays, of course - my problem was mostly that I didn't have any text long enough to be analysed. (Yes, I can hear the sound of your laughter all the way to here.) So, I might not write like Brown after all. I hope. Okay, I'm only going to take to heart the Wodehouse part; to supposedly sound like him is a compliment, right?
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on July 14th, 2010 07:57 pm (UTC)
Oh, she is! She's just a lot better than I am and I read a LOT more King. Enough that he can def. be considered an influence, lol. Or at least I spent enough time trying to imitate him when I still tried to write DT in Italian...

WODEHOUSE IS GREAT! Take it as a compliment and ignore the Dan Brown bit. Also oops. Maybe I'm chuckling a bit there. ;) ;) and no, you're a LOT better than Brown. Or Rowling, though she is better than he is... I think. I've just read bits and pieces from them, lol.

Thanks! ;) But I'm a bit curious here. Of all the people my/our age that I've encountered, very few have managed to escape the clutches of the Harry Potter series - at least as far as I know. Did the Pope manage to collect all the HP books in Rome for a big book burning or something, or did you just not swallow the hype? ;)

the female ghost of tom joad: dark tower eddie has the best quotesjanie_tangerine on July 14th, 2010 08:43 pm (UTC)
LOL, nah. The Pope didn't manage, all my friends read HP and even their parents did. And no one usually believes me when I say why I never read them, but... well, I just didn't care. It's not even a question of hype, it was that I just didn't care about reading about some guy going to wizard school to become a wizard. I wasn't interested at all, lol. And it caused me pains in the future because in middle school not reading HP meant not getting half of the conversations your friends had, but really, until then I just didn't care. And then the hype became huge and I still didn't care. And it still is huge and I still am not interested, lol. I guess I just need to like a premise to read something and it never really clicked with me. Me and HP just never had much of a relationship. ;)

Except for some couple years in high school where my desk-mate friend's obsession got to freaky levels and she basically told me EVERYTHING that happened until like book six. EVERY DAY. Back then if I saw Daniel Radcliffe's face my nerves started to hurt, but then high school was over and we went back to just not caring, lol. ;)

Margaret Atwood? Cool! It must be all the dystopic posts about politics!

It probably is! Because really. I get King, he's the English writer I've read most stuff of so it does make sense, but.. ah well. I'll take it as a compliment. ;)

I write like stephen king, I don't know if I should be flattered or worried :)

the beguiled is AWESOME, so happy you got to see it!!
the female ghost of tom joad: clint bridgesjanie_tangerine on July 14th, 2010 08:48 pm (UTC)
Ha, I'd be flattered. He still made up my favorite fictional character in the history of ever, I can't fault him. ;)

IT IS SO MUCH! OMG SUCH A BEAUTIFUL MOVIE I'm just very disappointed that I never found a copy sooner.

The generator kept insisting my fic was like Stephen King and Chuck Palahnuik. I blame Miles for the later and too many fandoms with weird stuff for the former. ;)

My brother's been recommending The Beguiled to me for ages. I might have to give it a shot.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost milesjanie_tangerine on July 14th, 2010 08:50 pm (UTC)
LOL, Miles is very Palahniuk. What made me more surprised was the generator's insistence with Nabokov. I mean. He's galaxies away in terms of writing, lol. While King... well, he's the English writer I've read the most stuff of in quantity terms, so it does kinda make sense. Still. ;)

That movie is so beautiful. The last half an hour is some of the most emotionally fucked/upsetting stuff I got to watch but it's a gem, really. And you can perv on Clint Eastwood a lot, which isn't a bad thing if you ask me. ;)
