It's that time of year again! I'm sure some of you know the drill already but for anyone that doesn't, here it is:

Each year, I send out Christmas cards to anyone that would like one (or a holiday card if you don't celebrate Christmas, just let me know). All you have to do is comment here with your name (if you don't want me to know your name, feel free to just leave it at your username or put the name you want me to use) and address in the comments - and if you're sending out cards, feel free to leave the link to the post or however you're keeping track of that in the comment as well. Comments are screened so that no one will see your info except for me.

I'm still around, I've just been working a lot of overtime the last couple of months. Heck, it took forever for me to finally finish a fic for once. (But at least I did it!)

If you're interested in the fic: Sometimes Dead Is Better - it's a bit of a crossover/fusion between Legends of Tomorrow and Pet Sematary with Sara deciding to find a way to bring Laurel back.

Otherwise, I hope everyone's been doing well and hope you're having (or had) a Happy Halloween!

It's no secret that my OTP for Legends is Captain Canary but I enjoy the hell out of shipping Sara and Leonard with certain others as well. Mainly Mick and Ray. This was actually recommended at the LoT community here on LJ and now I'm passing it along because it is absolutely hilarious.

It's an actors AU and so far there's two parts to the series. The first is done purely through the format of Twitter and shows what happens when Leonard finally gets his own Twitter. (Magic happens, okay? Magic.) The second shows the start of ColdAtom. There's also friendships with Sara and Jax in here, implied Sara/Lisa, and Rip as the frazzled director with Gideon as his even more frazzled assistant. Loved it.

So go check out the series, Hashtag Behind the Scenes! I guarantee you'll smile.

So in my long rant, I said that Katie Cassidy found out a couple days or the day before that Laurel was the one killed off. Turns out she found out while filming the episode before, which is more notice but still not a lot of notice.

Either way, I'd rather be correct in my ranting so I thought I'd post that here.



(Sidenote: FF.net needs to stop screwing up. Trying to post some old fics over there and I swear, it just keeps messing up. I'm about to give up and just say screw that site except for when I read.)

That stupid U2 album that got downloaded to everyone’s iTunes forever ago annoys the crap out of me. I’ve got mine on shuffle and every single time one of those songs comes on, I wonder what the hell the song is because I know I didn’t download it since I don’t recognize it and it doesn’t sound like anything I’d buy. Then I switch windows and it’s like, “Oh. Yeah.”

Then you can’t even delete the stupid thing. I’ve tried obviously but all I get is “Are you sure you want to hide these items from your iTunes purchases?”

No, I don’t want to hide them. I want to delete them. There’s a difference and you should stop trying to tell me what to listen to and let me get rid of the damn album.

Ugh.

I even tried listening to the album, just in case I was imagining how annoying I found it. Nope. I couldn't even make it through a whole song. I tried every single song and world of no. Whenever one of the songs comes on, it takes just a few seconds for me to realize what album has popped up and then I aggressively hit the next button. My music is supposed to be relaxing for me, iTunes. You're not making it so.

I don't even know why I'm so mad about this right now. I think because it's 2:30 in the morning.

So, I finished the first Captain Canary soulmate AU (I swear, this idea spiraled out of control - I started out with a list of 4 then it expanded to 5 and then to 7 and yesterday I got the 9th idea and that was the one I started writing; I've got a list at my desk of ones to write) last night. Mostly. It depends on if I add a third chapter in Sara's POV set at the end of Destiny since the first two cover the pilot from Leonard's POV. I'm debating.

Either way, I'm glad I finished it because I'm determined to write them all and just put them all in a series. It's nice to be able to cross one off the list.

Shoot and I just realized there's two fics I just uploaded straight to AO3 and completely forgot to put on my writing journal, lol. Guess I better get on that!

I'm rolling my eyes so hard at Marc Guggenheim, I swear. I have no idea how that man is still employed. This is one of those instances where I wish a fic writer would be in charge of the show. There's some damn good ones out there.

I haven't heard anything regarding Legends of Tomorrow (I have a bit more faith in some of the other writers for that show anyway) but for Arrow? OMG, Guggenheim, how do you still have a job? It's like he can't make up his mind about anything!

Cut so you can scroll passed if you"d like.Collapse )

Okay, I think I'm done. If you made it this far, I salute you for reading that, lol. Not that it's obvious by this post but I generally try to keep it pretty positive when thinking about what's coming with shows. Arrow has just....stomped on that and it built up until I had to get it out. Hell if I was going to do it over on Tumblr either. You post a rant over there and if it goes against someone's opinion, they're suddenly reblogging it to their followers who think how they do and it just spirals out of control while you start getting bitchy messages and the like. At least, that's what it's seemed like lately and I, frankly, don't need to deal with that.

I'm pretty sure that it was back in May that I was going to post my theories on what was going to happen next season on The Flash. But life happened and then I completely forgot. So, by now, I'm sure everyone knows what happened in the finale and has their own theories but I'm still going to post about it.

To start, Barry screwed everything to hell and back. Because, well, Barry.

(Don't get me wrong, I don't hate Barry. But there are times he frustrates me so much that I want to bury my face in a pillow and scream. This icon? Using it because I'm 99% sure that this was what we didn't see Barry do before he decided to go for a jaunt through time.)

Speculation time - complete with spoilers!Collapse )

Just a little bit of what I'm thinking when it comes to next season and, honestly, the only solid thing I know is that Grant's confirmed the title of the season 3's first episode is Flashpoint. And Brandon Routh has said there's a hell of a lot of time travel in the first episode of LoT's season 2 so we'll be seeing a lot of different time periods.

I suppose I'll find out in October!

I bought the first two books of The Raven Cycle on Friday because I've been hearing so much about it and it does sound good - anyone read it at all? I'm curious if it's all just hype on Tumblr or if anyone else has read it and likes it.

Before I get to those though, I've still got a trilogy to finish reading and there's technically a stack of books on two of my bar stools that I really should try and make a dent in.

This is what happens when I find so many good fics! (Captain Canary fandom and Tony Stark fandom, I'm looking at you.) I forget to read actual books. Also, I've been rereading some of my favorite Fast & Furious fics too, darn it. And I see a new Kradam by spikedluv is up - which caused me to do a literal double take and then check the year on the post because it's been so long since any Kradam fic has popped up on my friends list, lol!

So much reading to get done - this is going to interfere with writing, I can just tell.

Meh, worth it.

No header anymore but I doubt I'll find one since people aren't hanging around LJ as much as they used to (though I suppose you never know - might find one on DW or something) and, frankly, I don't know if I want to try it since graphics have never been my strong suit.

Either way, I'm glad for the change at least.

And now maybe I can my butt back to working on some fics.

(I know, it's a miracle. Two posts in two days!)
