WELCOME

Updated Post - December, 2011. ^_^

WELCOME!

Update: As of right now, I will no longer be posting my fic here. All fic will be posted at celestine_fics on Dreamwidth, where you can comment using OpenID, and at my account on AO3. All fics that are already here will remain here, but are also at celestine_fics, and I strongly prefer comments to be made over there and not here on LJ.

That goes for all comments; my main journal on DW is celestineangel, I crosspost everything from there to LJ, but I strongly prefer comments to be made on my DW account. I hope to eventually get rid of this LJ altogether.

End Update.

I'm a writer and fangirl, but this journal is also about my life. My most beloved fandoms: Inception, Harry Potter and Doctor Who. I used to actively write for some anime/manga fandoms, mostly Sailormoon, Inuyasha and Gundam Wing. Those fics may be found here.

Mostly, this post is a place to gather all my fanfiction together in one easy to find spot. So. What follows are links to all the fanfiction I've written and posted on this journal; for Inception and Harry Potter there are index posts, because having all those fics listed here made this post longer than it already is. XD In the future, if I write enough fic in any one fandom, I'll separate it into it's own index page.

All fics on this page or on an index page are listed in order from most recent to oldest. Please read all the header information, which includes rating, word count, and warnings.

I'm working on more!

So, there. Again, welcome!
Well, 2012 was not a productive year for me (I think I was still a little broken from "These Walls Stand Silent"). I did more than I thought I could, but didn't do as much as I might have wanted. Still, fic is fic, and if they didn't come out to my usual standards, they're not so terrible I won't claim them. :)

So, here we go:

March, 2012

Both of these fics were written for the Aurors Fest, which was my first ever AO3-hosted fest. Neither is up to the quality of what I thought I would do for this fest. I'm just happy I managed to write them at all.

At the End of the Day/On AO3. -- Teddy Lupin is an Auror, and has to make the difficult choices Aurors make.
A Day in the OEMU/At AO3. -- Just a normal day in the Office of Ethical Magic Use.

July, 2012

Somehow, I wrote two fics for nextgendarkfest. I was silly enough to offer to pinch-hit. It turned out all right.

Mnemosyne in Chains. -- Teddy Lupin loves to babysit. (I think I'm a little fascinated with the potential for Teddy Lupin.)
When Spirit Speaks. -- Shouldn't a son be able to prove himself to his father?

October, 2012

Okay, well, this one I'm having to link directly to the post at hp_darkfest because I apparently never put it up anywhere else. I will, now that I know I didn't. But I think this is around the time I gave up on the rest of that year and anything in this year.

Wolf at the Door. -- The wolf at the door wears a familiar face. (This one actually began life as I non-fest fic, but I knew it would be perfect for the hp_darkfest, so I used that deadline as an excuse to finish it.)


-------------------------------------------------------------

The future of my writing/involvement in fandom/my LJCollapse )

The future of my DWCollapse )

In conclusion: Good-bye, LJ people. You know where to find me if you really want to, it's linked at the bottom of this post.

Good-bye, fandom, for a little while anyway. I love you, in all your varied splendor and nuttiness, and I hope to return some day.

Hello, potential writing cheerleaders! I hope to have a long and fruitful relationship with all of you!

This post went way off the original intent very quickly.

[LiveJournal] ...?

LJ, WTF is your new profile?

NEW FRIENDS PAGE NO NO NO UGH WHYYYY.

This entry was originally posted at http://celestineangel.dreamwidth.org/429785.html. Please comment there using OpenID.

[Fandom] UGH.

So, I received a review on FF.net aka the Pit, complaining about a detail of the story that, admittedly, I would probably not write today. But I wrote the thing more than ten years ago now, when I was young and stupid and ignorant of a lot of things I'm aware of now.

So I went to try to respond to them, and of course they're not logged in, so it doesn't give me the option.

And then I saw the review before it, praising me for a sentence of the fic that, reading it now, makes me want to delete the fic and forget it ever happened. Not because it's badly written, but because it absolutely shows how ignorant I was about gender and gender roles. What's worse to me is that the person praised this for being sweet, when now I look at it and know it isn't. And while some excuse can be made for the character from whose POV it was written, I can't use that in the end because at the time I intended it to be sweet.

Uuuugh. I just want to fix all my old bad!fic.

(If I were to finish AQD, and then rewrite it as I once planned, one of the things I would fix would be my portrayal of the character of Hepzibah. If you've read it, then you know what I'm talking about. UGH.)

[Random] I AM MAKING A POST.

YES IT'S TRUE. I AM MAKING A POST. IT IS A RANDOM POST OF THINGS. Since I have been so long away from DW/LJ.

1) So, a good bit of that away time was spent in playing Dragon Age: Origins and many of the DLCs, and then Dragon Age 2. I had friends of Facebook eagerly awaiting the time when I came to the end of DA2, and what my reaction would be. I dare say I did not disappoint. Considering that IRL I sat at my computer making agony faces and screaming at the screen.

2) I have also been quite lazy and just in a state of not wanting to do a damn thing that requires actual effort. Which includes posting.

3) I read a lot. Recently reread the first Kushiel's Legacy trilogy in preparation for a discussion of it with a friend who is reading it for the first time. :D Yay!

4) I dropped from the nextgenbigbang because MOTIVATION. I DON'T HAVE IT. In fact, I think I am mostly not going to write much fanfiction for a while, and if I do, I probably won't do it for fests and won't tell anyone I've written it until it's done. (Which is a good thing considering I have developed a burning passion for Enjolras/Grantaire.)

5) LES MISERABLES. I've loved this musical for years, despite having never seen it performed. The movie, despite having some editing weirdness and a surfeit of closeups, is fabulous and please someone just ship all the Oscars to Anne Hathaway's house right now everyone else go home. I've seen it twice, and I want to see it again, and I can't wait for it on DVD. Oh, and also, I bought the 25th anniversary concert on DVD, and watched it on the big screen TV in the living room and IT IS AMAZING. Best Javert.

6) I have also developed a burning passion for Grumpy Cat, and all the GC memes, but none could be better than Grumpy Cat together with Les Miserables! LE MISERABLE. YES. THIS. IT MADE ME SO HAPPY INSIDE.

7) I want to write but I am lazy. D:

8) How is everyone else?

HI LES MISERABLES IS WONDERFUL AND I AM NOT DEAD.

[Movies] LOL.

Okay, so, I saw the trailer for Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, and that's not even what I'm talking about here, not really.

Because there was a part of me that couldn't help but think...



"I've met those eyebrows somewhere before...."



Oh, right. Well, she did an awesome job in that movie (which is a really weird but not so bad mostly because it's just cracky fun movie), so yay.

(Except I didn't plan on watching those movies--Mortal Instruments, I mean--because I know who wrote the books, and her history in the HP and LotR fandoms, and I really just had no interest in yet another "sooper speshul snowflake magical girl saves the world while trying to decide which boy she likes" teeny bopper urban fantasy. But... the preview makes the movie look kind of awesome? CONFLICTED.)

[Life] Fuck.

Henry, the youngest and smallest of the dogs died yesterday. My mom's a mess again. Hell, even I was a mess. I think I might have written 200 words on my NaNo novel last night, if that. Yesterday just sucked.

[Games] Uh... hi.

So. Yeah. I'm not dead, I promise. I mean, not for real, though I die about a billion times in the game. Which is the fun sort of dying! I guess? It must be, because I keep doing it.

Game spoilersCollapse )

That's why I've been incommunicado for a while. XD I AM A GAMER NOW, Y'ALL.

[Games] Moar Dragon Age: Origins

(I'm using that as my gaming icon for now until I can either find 1) a DAO icon I like or 2) a general gamin icon. Help in either regard would be appreciated.)

I finally beat all the stupid spiders! Yay! And got my form signed! Yay! And helped Jowan find and destroy his phylactory (or however it's spelled)! Yay!

SpoilersCollapse )

[Games} UUUUGH.

So I guess I'm a sort of gamer now? Anyways, Mark (of Mark Reads and Mark Watches) has a new site, Mark Plays in which he plays games. So far only video games, though he says any type of game is fair game.

Right now he's playing Dragon Age: Origins, which made me want to play it (he also played Portal 2, and now I have the first Portal game), so I DLed it (IT TOOK TWO DAYS), and started playing tonight. It was my reward to myself for finishing my hp_darkfest fic on time.

Cut for OMGs SPIDERS and arachnaphobia and EW GROSSCollapse )

[Fandom] =.= Grrrrr....

I ordered the new Collegium Chronicles book by Mercedes Lackey: Redoubt. I have no doubt it's going to be good, I enjoyed all the others.

But who is Daw hiring to write their book jacket blurbs these days? Because this one is utterly and ridiculously terrible. I have no words to explain how bad it is, but I'll try: it's like a badly written summary of the past books and the first part of this book. It's like whoever wrote it knew they needed so many words to fill up the required space, but couldn't think of any other way to do so except to summarize the previous books. Badly. And they can't write at all. Maybe they grabbed someone off the street to do it? Gave them a quick run down of the previous books and said "Here, we'll pay you 50 bucks to write this for us."

This is how terrible this is.

[Fandom] Hello, new people!

So thanks to a DW friending meme, there are new people here! HI, NEW PEOPLE!

As a welcome present, I decided to put together a post of links. All of these are links to HP-related posts I've made that I think might be relevant, or important, enjoyable, or just plain amusing. Some are discussion posts, some are my thoughts on canon, or my headcanon, and some are just silly. I'm also including links to where you can find my fanfiction, if you like.

--[personal profile] celestine_fics
--My AO3 homepage.
--My first impressions of the HBP movie.
--A short post about how I wanted to write an essay about the influence of the Hogwarts Houses... mostly interesting for the comments.
--The beginnings of my posts about rereading the books looking for specifically the ideas characters had and the way Rowling presented Slytherins. Spoiler: I never did write the essay.
--Hahaha, a post about running into an old fanfiction file.
--Me flailing over various things after rereading DH. NEVILLE.
--Me, remaining confused over the whole Elder Wand thing.
--James Potter vs. Severus Snape. Also, I think Sirius was an asshole. A fun asshole, but an asshole.
--I have some extremely weird fandom dreams.
--My thoughts on the second DH movie. Somehow I skipped the first one?
--Random prompt that no one ever filled!
--And I finally joined Pottermore.
--Music video because I was without brain that day.
--I STILL CANNOT BELIEVE THIS FIC WON.

If you are not here for HP things, or if you are but would also like to see posts from me about other things in my tags or interests, let me know and I'll put together another links post. :)

[Reviews] Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines

The following review does contain some spoilers, but hopefully not plotty spoilers. Mainly relationship spoilers, and I don't know if they really count but I'm listing them as spoilers anyway. Also, there is a teeny spoiler for the first chapter of Ashes of Honor by Seanan McGuire, which totally makes sense in context.

Abandon all hope of being spoiler-free, ye who enter hereCollapse )

A fun, imaginitive look at what might be if it were possible to create magic from books. (It's the Magic ex Libris series, after all.) A well-paced, well-written start to Hines' new series, with some surprises and plenty of speculation material for future books. I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Hines' work, or of non-romance oriented urban fantasy in general. Anyone who is a fantasy fan, and a lover of books would probably get a kick out of it, too.

[Fandom] NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Warehouse 13, season 4, episode 9. "The Ones You Love."

IS SOMEONE ELSE WATCHING THIS OH MY GODS.

SPOILERS LIKE WHOACollapse )

I am chronically behind on this, because I do all my TV watching on the computer now. It's become impossible to remember to actually turn my TV on Monday nights. So, I bought a TV pass on Amazon Instant Video for this season. Most of the time it's fine, but this week's ep wasn't delivered until this morning (after I emailed them to ask why, and they said it was fine). So that's why my flailing is happening now and not Monday.

[Tarot] One Card Draw at....

[personal profile] wrenstarling! Find it here!

[personal profile] wrenstarling's original bird deck is very good, and so is [personal profile] wrenstarling. I definitely recommend asking for a card if you want.

Also, this month [personal profile] wrenstarling is asking that all donations go to Meals on Wheels, in honor of their grandmother, who recently passed.

[Spirituality] Calling all Pagans!

Or at least those who feel capable of contributing to a Pagan-oriented cause. Right now, I would count spreading the word as a contribution, because the more Pagans who know about it, the more likely they are to get funded in the four days they have left.

Pagan Living TV Indiegogo Campaign.

I don't know about y'all, but I would LOVE a Pagan-oriented TV show/channel. If you would too, contribute what you feel you can monetarily, and definitely spread the word.

[Fandom] Things I have to do!

I have a lot on my plate.

1) hp_darkfest. Due on the 16th of October, but I'm not too worried about it yet. I've got many words.

2) nextgenbigbang. My first big bang! It's not due until next year! XD And I have a cheerleader assigned to me! :D We've talked a little, and it looks like we'll get along great, so yaaay!

3) Finishing something non-fandom related.

4) I am a Municipal Liaison for NaNoWriMo this year! My region is brand new, and I'm co-MLing with a good friend, so yay! Should be fun! I'm already looking to do awesome write-ins and things. :D Also, now that I am an ML and totally more involved, NaNo totally counts as a fandom.

[Disney] HI EVERYONE.

In celebration of my not being dead, let's have an all-Disney post! Whoo hoo!

Most important is that my friend idiomagic has an awesome Disney pin ebay store! She has literally thousands of pins in stock, so go check them out: Gwynpins.

Then, there is the blog I read every day this weekend during lunch, wishing I was eating anything I read about instead of Taco Bell. And I love Taco Bell: Disney Food Blog is the best blog. Lots of reviews of Disney restaurants, including the counter-service food courts at the value resorts. Very good blog, yes. Also, pictures! :D

It seems like everyone I know other than me is going to Disney this year. ([personal profile] chrisbrad has reminded me that we've already been this year, but since it feels like it was last year, I'm not counting it as this year. D: ) I know people going in October, and November, and December of this year and I have asked every single one of them to take me with them, but none of them will. D: D: D: Some malarky about me not fitting in their suitcases or something. ;)

I want to be at Disney right now. I've been reading Disney books, including Mousejunkies, just to feel like I've got my Disney fix.

I am going to try to start posting more often again. We shall see how well this works out.

[Life] Sigh.

So, today's my last day at work before taking an almost two-week vacation. It's going to be fun. For four days, I'm going to Lafayette, and I'm taking my laptop, and being the non-fun fuddy duddy I am, I'm going to attempt to use the getting away from home for a bit to actually write. And hopefully get something accomplished.

So, of course, my parents are trying to ruin it all.

The step-dad is "concerned" because he thinks I'm spending all my money and won't have enough to pay him the car payment. So what does he do? Instead of thinking (or asking me if) I've possibly thought about that and it'll be fine as long as I pay him on my next payday which was the original deal, he's demanding I write a check now. Which would put me in some trouble. But wouldn't if he'd fucking wait.

(And I've started to get the impression that he's been more demanding about the $300 car payment because he's started to rely on it for his bills... which means he's the one who needs to manage his money better, not me.)

So, he's said something to my mother, not to me, and so now my mother, who is having surgery a week from tomorrow, comes to me last night crying because she doesn't want to be in the hospital worried that he and I are back at the house fighting over money. Which won't be happening because I'll be off the whole time she'll be in the hospital specifically so either me or my step-dad can be at the hospital with her. She won't be alone there for more than an hour or two, and he and I will not be in the same room for very long the whole time.

Neither of them want me to go, for their own reasons. If their only problem with it was being afraid I didn't have the money (and WHY do they always assume I haven't thought things through?), why aren't they, I don't know, offering to help me instead of just bugging the shit out of me about it? I mean, it's just four days. I don't plan on doing much of anything.

Grrrrr. And they wonder why I want to go. I WANT TO GET AWAY FROM THEM.
