In a fit of madness and possibly awesomeness, [livejournal.com profile] inksplotched, [livejournal.com profile] likeserendipity and I present:

[livejournal.com profile] atasteof! A Taste of Everything, a Multi-Fandom Recs Community.


A Taste of Everything will feature recs from a variety of fandoms with a variety of pairings and genres -- emphasis on (you guessed it) variety. Right now we're a team of three -- [livejournal.com profile] inksplotched will be reccing for Harry Potter, [livejournal.com profile] likeserendipity's in charge of Twilight and I'm your rep for Doctor Who. About 2-3 recs will be posted per week per fandom.

We're also looking to expand our fandomy horizons, so if you'd like to represent a fandom, or even suggest a fic in any fandom, let us know! We're particularly interested in finding people for the following fandoms:


  • The Office -- hurrah, [livejournal.com profile] miss_mishi!
  • Gossip Girl
  • Merlin
  • Supernatural
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Narnia -- welcome aboard [livejournal.com profile] popplewells!


...but if you're interested in another, feel free to apply here!

Watch us, apply, suggest a fic or simply look around.

iTunes' Halloween mix includes the (oldschool) Doctor Who theme and Hedwig's Theme (which is just called "Harry Potter"), as well as a crappy cover of Thriller by some woman. Who wants a cover of Thriller?

Speaking of Halloween, I hope you all had a good one. I was a crazy cat lady, but for whatever reason I never ended up using my camera so there are no pictures. The party I went to was ...retardedly dramatic. Drama of the highschool variety, to be specific which is I guess what happens when you try to date highschoolers. It was hosted by my friend Joe, who is my friend Candice's ex (and they dated for four years), and it featured:
-Joe's new lady of interest; they've been on like one or two dates
-Candice's "interest" in this lady of interest
-Lady of Interest flirting with Some Other Guy
-Kid From Highschool telling Candice that Lady of Interest "likes Joe but wants to fuck Other Guy"
-Candice indignantly telling Joe about Lady of Interest's interest in Other Guy
-Joe getting really really drunk
-Candice tending to really really drunk Joe while Lady of Interest and Other Guy mysteriously disappear for a long while
-Possibly there was some hole-in-wall punching as well lol Andy

All in all, not the best party I've ever attended. I had intended to stay the night but I ended up getting a ride home from Lisa and Kyle (who were dressed as Satine/a prostitute and Christian/a Rabbi respectively. Lisa insists he was Christian, but everyone -- and Kyle -- agreed that he looked more like a Rabbi) because I wasn't really ~feelin' it~... plus when Lyle left I'd be basically alone with a bunch of high and/or drunk kids ...and Will, who was neither. Will claims to have found a new respect for my status as the Obligatory Sober Person, LIRL.

Most of the other costumes were unremarkable ("I'M A CAT LOL" x 200) and I don't have pictures anyway so sorry, but definitely my favourite was Joe and Chris' pair of Captain Hammer and Dr Horrible. I think I got minor street cred (or internet cred) for actually recognizing them right away. I was also the only one with ovaries who seemed to understand why Mark took to playing "Never Gonna Give You Up". Candice's was pretty good too, she was Miss Scarlett from Clue.

Obligatory meme (because no one cares about the rest of this stuff): Go to urbandictionary.com and type in your answer to each question in the search box, then write the FIRST definition it gives you. )

For those of you who are cool enough, UR.org's Annual (Harry Potter) Christmas Fic Exchange is opening up again, so you should all go sign up now so Christy doesn't eat my face. The exchange fics are notoriously AWESOME so obviously you should go do that now.
thirty2flavors: (last of the time lords)
Haven't made a public/fandomy post in a while so here goes!

Has anyone ever watched that show "The Moment of Truth"? I just saw about ten minutes of it and I can't get my head around how stupid it is. For those who are unaware, here's what I understand the premise is: someone agrees to answer X number of obscenely personal questions while connected to a lie detector. The show then "randomly" selects 1/2X of those questions to ask them on air. If they answer everything honestly (and basically don't chicken out by refusing to answer or lying) they get half a mill. Questions include "have you cheated on your current girlfriend?" and other life-shattering inquiries. I just... I don't get it. Okay, so you could win half a million (before taxes) -- but you also potentially destroy all your interpersonal relationships. Why? Why? And of course the audience boos angrily whenever someone answers "yes" to a bad question, and of course there's a woman who goes "THAT ANSWER IS ... [insert unneccessarily long pause for dramatics].... TRUE..." and of course the show picks all the questions where the answer was embarassing.

Did I mention I hate reality TV and game shows?

Except The Mole. Fuck yes, the Mole was so awesome.

What else? For anyone who's seen Hairspray or had to listen to the credits music constantly for five months and watches Doctor Who: this is so comically appropriate.

Also the first chapter of Breaking Dawn is failtastic. All I want from Breaking Dawn now is for Jacob and Tanya to hook up and be totally awesome, leaving Edward and Bella to wallow in their failure marital bliss. And lawl, northern Canada. Sup Jake?

Whatever muse I once had has apparently died a violent death. It's like pulling teeth to write five coherent sentences, I swear. It's basically to the point I don't even want to write. I don't know, but it sucks. I also fail at writing commitments because of it -- I didn't finish [livejournal.com profile] anythingbutgrey's birthday fic on time, I've owed [livejournal.com profile] pirate_smile a letter for like ninety years, and I only just finished the letter I've owed [livejournal.com profile] latine for one hundred years. Not to mention Silly Love Songs is rolling in a pit of failure, haha.

I also mean to write a Harry/Hermione fic for [livejournal.com profile] afterthree's "someting unexpected" challenge, because coming from me there's nothing more unexpected than an uncanon shippy fic about the Trio, wtf.

Anyway, in the spirit of attempting to kick myself into gear, here's a meme:

Reply with a character or pairing i'm familiar with and i'll write a few sentences of fic.

Note the "few sentence" part; I promise nothing complete or whole in any form, I just kinda wanna... force myself to write stuff. Yeaah. And if you happen to give me a Twilight pairing, please note that I have never, ever written Twilight before because that would mean I'd have to actually put thought into Smeyer's characters.

So yesterday/today I applied to & joined [livejournal.com profile] ontd_twilight, clearly indicating that I am megalame. OR MEGA AWESOME? No probably megalame. Anyway thusfar they seem to be hilarious. And I'm pretty excited because I've always wanted to ruin a fandom.

In other news, happy Easter, guys. I don't really celebrate Easter beyond "ooo chocolate bunnies" but ... y'know. Enjoy.

- Reply to this post, and I will pick four/five/six of your icons.
- Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
- Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
- This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!


Here's that icon meme, as chosen by [livejournal.com profile] inksplotched and [livejournal.com profile] mybabyangel:

1. - I feel as though this speaks for itself. I cannot be part of the Twilight fandom without mocking it mercilessly, and I needed an icon that would allow me to do so, and [livejournal.com profile] bluebellflames pulled through. YAY JULI. Also, it's massively true. Dude speaks like a shitty Valentine's card.

2. - Basically [livejournal.com profile] buttfacemakani is amazing, as I am sure everyone in the universe will agree, plus I love Lily/James and unrequited!Severus and basically it's just the greatest image I've ever seen. That and Lily's bubble sys "LOL LOL JERKS" and though now I think it probably is her calling them jerks while laughing, I first interpreted it like "LOL I <3 JERKS" which I think is a very accurate and hilarious statement, given her choice in men.

3. - I hate Chuck Norris jokes, but I sure do love Chuck Norris style jokes when referring to someone who is not Chuck Norris. Like "Bill Nye can split atoms with his bare hands!" and ...well, the quote seen here. Plus it matches the amazing facebook group I'm in. There were like ninety of these that I loved, including "Neville Longbottom uses the Mirror of Erised to comb his hair."

4. - I found a post of Simpsons quote icons and saved like nine thousand. I'm using this one for the time being because it helps me make fun of Twilight. ...And eskimos.

5. - Another result of [livejournal.com profile] bluebellflames' awesome icon requests. I love this one because it combines my love for Scrubs and Dr Cox/Kelso with an awesomely useful icon for times when peopel are bastards. Which is often.

6. - Because it is amazing.

IN OTHER NEWS, everyone who is anyone NEEDS TO GO WATCH this AMAZING episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark? on youtube. Shit, I loved that show hardcore when I was young and am super-stoked to find out that episodes are on youtube. But you all need to watch THIS ONE because there is NOTHING FUNNIER than a 90s show about computers. Tru fax. EVIL TAMOGACHIS :O

I have just decided I will finish my [livejournal.com profile] redandthewolf entry tonight. I must, I must, I must (improve my bust?)

And I'm stupid so I posted at this honesty meme so... yeah, do it if you like. Whatevs.
thirty2flavors: (lily loves jerks)
Okay [livejournal.com profile] buttfacemakani is to blame for this one. You know, as if you could ever blame her for anything at all. She'd just draw something awesome to distract you and then run away into the night. See: icon.

Anywhoodles.

Name a character from one of my fandoms, and I'll give you either ...

1. three facts about them from my personal canon/fanon
2. a reason he/she sucks
3. a reason he/she is awesomecakes
4. five things that never happened to that character
5. five people that character never fell in love with and why

If you want 1, 4 or 5 it may actually spawn itself into a little fic, in which case I advise choosing from the wide array of Ms. Rowling's characters rather than Monica from Friends. If you want to choose someone random again then I'd suggest 2 or 3 because I probably won't be able to come up with much more. Ha. Ha.

But actually I'm kind of hoping people will give me someone interesting and choose 4 or 5 (or even 1) because I am bored and sort of inspirationed-out and this seems like a cool place to start.
thirty2flavors: (deathly hallows)
What should I be writing? Probably one of the fic exchange/challenge things I'm signed up for, or Silly Love Songs (which should've been updated like eons ago), or A Thoroughly Unremarkable Day (which I intended to update like eons ago) or, even better, one of the two major essays that I really, really need to start and have not, yet.

What am I writing? None of the above, naturally!

Title: Hollow
Rating: G right now. Or maybe PG for rampant angst. Guess it depends on how much of a pansy you are. Also I am like 99% sure no one gives a shit about ratings unless it's the difference between a PG-13 and an R/NC-17. Has anyone actually ever been like "OH IT IS PG-13 AND I AM TWELVE, I BETTER NOT READ IT"? Come on.
Characters: Various; any pairings will be canon, but I don't expect this will veer into the land of shipping too often.
Summary: Follow various characters on their pilgrimage to Godric's Hollow.
Excerpt: Thinking of them no longer causes an ache so deep he fears he might collapse into himself, and he finds himself worrying that the admirers that cropped up after the fall of Voldemort have faded into obscurity, leaving the Potters' grave forgotten and ignored.

Hollow - March 27, 1985

Title: Crossing the T's
Authors: Me ([livejournal.com profile] _thirty2flavors) and [livejournal.com profile] latine (Sharon).
Rating: Probably nothing more than G for now, though I'm thinking it may rise to PG-13.
Genre: Romance/Humour. (I return to my roots? Or something.)
Characters: Dorea Black & Charlus Potter, along with a whole host of original characters, overlooked canon characters, and characters you know and love before you know and love them.
Excerpt: I am trying and will continue trying my best to get along with you, but do believe me when I tell you that when these six months are over, you and I are done with. No hard feelings.
Summary: In the 1930s, Tom Riddle is just a boy, Dumbledore is just a teacher, Grindelwald is undefeated and, as it happens, a Potter and a Black are paired together in Potions. Inspired by The UR Forums' Letter Project Challenge.

I'm watching a hockey game, but it's intermission right now, so survey ahoy! )

I've lost my interest in pimping, but I have written lots more drabbles:

'Out, Damn Spot' - a scene centering around Severus plucked from POA.

'Bluffing' - a 100-word companion to Valedictory, starring Sirius.

'The Height of Dishonour' - inspired by the line in DH "[James] would have thought it the height of dishonour to mistrust his friends.

Slightly longer:

'But For the Grace of God': Severus duels James after Hogwarts, and the battle makes a lasting impression.

So partially in thanks to [livejournal.com profile] nest_of_spiders and partially just through, um, my miraculous brain (pft), Puzzle Pieces has three new not-quite-drabbles-not-quite-oneshots tagged on to it.

First, a oneshot:

Title: Delayed Reaction
Rating: PG for massive angst
Prompt: "Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it." - Dumbledore in GOF (If I were Chris I'm sure I could give you the chapter number too.)
Excerpt: He finds James' body first, and grief begins to work its way to the outermost edges of his consciousness, but he shoves it away valiantly. Any emotion is better than the unbearable impending heartbreak, and so he throws himself into anger and hatred instead.
Summary: Sirius represses his grief over the Potters for a very, very long time.



Dude my iPod just went from a very solemn Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again to a blasting (Phantom's music is quiet) Stayin' Alive by the BeeGees. The dangers of shuffle. *snort* Awesome.

*COUGH*

Yes. These are all added to Puzzle Pieces, though they're longer, 300-700 words.

Title: First-Rate Intelligence:
Characters: Lily, James
Prompt: "The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise." - F. Scott Fitzgerald
Summary: James is worried about the consequences of hiding.

Title: Something Old, Something New
Characters: James, Charlus
Prompt: Very loosely:"Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes." -Henry David Thoreau, Walden
Summary: The day before he goes to Hogwarts, James inherits an heirloom.

Title: Purveyors of Aids
Characters: Remus, Fred, George
Summary: Remus thinks about his favorite students.

thirty2flavors: (snape/lily)
So I decided to write another short multi-chaptered fic -- that is to say, think 'Truce', not 'Silly Love Songs'. This one, like Truce, will be generally light-hearted and fun.

Title: A Thoroughly Unremarkable Day
Rating: PG
Characters: Remus, Tonks, occasional references to others, random townspeople
Excerpt: Three years of training, practice duels, rigorous testing, and lecture after lecture from Moody for this? Following a devastatingly boring man while he went about daily errands?
Summary: Tonks is rather displeased with her latest work assignment. Remus is rather certain he's being followed.

A Thoroughly Unremarkable Day, chapter one - coffee, pears and suspicions.

Enjoy!

I have a QUESTION for the lot of you. Well, not so much a ... question as a... request for backup.

Yeah um basically I am fresh out of ideas with regards to what to name James' parents in Silly Love Songs, and if I ever want to finish the next chapter, I'm going to need that, because just repeatedly calling them "Mr. and Mrs. Potter" will sound rather dumb. Um... if you help I might actually be able to write the next scene and finally update?

I am so open to suggestions, man, although I am sort of a picky person with names so do not be offended if your brilliant suggestion is not the one I go with.

And for the sake of my head, please don't suggest "Harry" for James' father. I'll pass, thanks.
