Welcome to Night Vale

Please do yourself a favor and give Welcome to Night Vale a listen! It is a phenomenal podcast. It is everything you might want a serial Lovecraftian story-as-told-through-local-news to be and more, and the musical interludes are great as well. It's funny and scary and insightful and just plain intriguing, and I am only on episode two, but I'm already hooked.

(It is also available on iTunes, but I'm not sure how to link iTunes in a browser.)

What you see, I see~

Well, I saw Skyfall last night, and having thought it over since, I've figured it out! There is one very simple problem with this movie. The problem is that it's under the delusion of being a James Bond film. It is not! Bond's role is not terribly integral to this film in the end beyond providing Raoul Silva with a "heroic good" parallel. And in truth, Bond is not even heroic good. He is the same kind of monster that Silva is, but better content with being leashed. Maybe he might have been otherwise if they were still treating Bond as a character and not restoring him to a male power fantasy, but that was not the case.

In fact, Skyfall should have been and is M's movie.

Spoilers below the cut. Probably! )

In conclusion, Skyfall!

I have lost all control of my life.

Working on memes. In the meantime, let's have at a new sort of meme.

  • Give me 2-5 actors + a genre (or 3 adjectives, if you want to be more specific) and I will make you a fake movie poster, a plot summary, and a prose snippet of the novelization.

Drabble/Chain Presents!

Iseult/Saith FST coming up soon! In the meantime, I am taking a page from Isana and asking that anyone what wants a present drabble and/or picture just declare so in the comments. I will try so hard.

State of the Me, Pt. 1

* I'm working on the Helene + Vera prompt. Finally, I am unblocked!
* I was working on a FST for Jaida + Helene friendship in the high school AU. It has turned into a serial killer BFFs fanmix. I should really be more surprised.
* Check it out, I have found the best fanmix of ever! It is called Female Robbery, and it is a lady thief mix by Dangereuse, who has also made a great deal of fantastic mixes in the past. Please give it a listen!
* kjlrgkelrjg klertjfdk. SHADOW AND BONE. SHADOW AND BONE. I think I'm going to try to rec some YA novels, and you can expect incoherent praise for this book when I do.

Memes and Stuff.

Regarding the mystery meme, and keeping myself honest:

It comes down to the numbers. )

And then there's this thing, which might get finished. Eventually. I hope.

Art subject to change, now that this isn't a Halloween project. )

State of the FSTs, Part Something or Other

So, there you have it. The Little Mermaid FST. Let me know if the links work - I'm trying both services out for the first time.

There might be another one coming out tonight. I'm two or three tracks away from finishing the Dawn/Jemesk fanmix, and it sounds pretty great!

State of the FSTs

I have some observations and predictions.

I was asked for a Jem/Dawn fanmix, and I plan to make it. What I can only assume none of you know is that I was already working on individual mixes for both of those characters. You are gonna be so sick of Sour Times, Blather. You don't know it yet, and you might not even know the song, but you will.

The Little Mermaid FST is gonna be instrumental only. Is there any other way I could possibly make a Hans Christian Anderson Little Mermaid FST? Spoilers: no, there is not.

OT3s are hard. But not impossible, it turns out! I have at least one perfect song for Summer/Zack/Felipe and a bunch of good ones. This is actually better than I'm doing on the Ivy/Gina front, as tonally themed ficmixes are even harder than that.

Seriously glad I asked for these, though, because the douchebaggery factor this election is bringing just keeps on coming like it doesn't even fathom the concept of stopping. One day I will be thick-skinned enough that this stuff will glance off me, but this is not that day.

Please, someone, give me a list of five FSTs you'd like me to do and I'll see about doing them. Maybe one, maybe all.

(Ficmixes are coming along fine. How do write tho)

You Spit Out the Sky: A Mengli FST

An FST for Huang Mengli, with a surplus of angst. PB is Hu Ge, because today is not my day drawing-wise.

Isana, I am so sorry and I hope you like it.

feelgood by numbers | the go! team
(bb!Mengli: fun, cheerful, and carefree.)

a very precious time | gil scott-heron
Was there the faintest breeze
and did she have a ponytail?
And could she make you feel ten feet tall
walking down the grassy trail?
Was it your first love, a very precious time?
the nursery | clint mansell
country carnage | danny elfman
(or, the raid on Feiyu.)

end of the world | ben zeitlin, dan romer
(If it isn't everything you've ever known changing forever, what is it?)

to build a home | the cinematic orchestra
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held onto me.
'Cause I built a home for you, for me
until it disappeared from me, from you
and now it's time to leave and turn to dust.
stars are stars | echo and the bunnymen
The sky seems full
when you're in the cradle;
the rain will fall and wash away your dreams.
Stars are stars and they shine so hard.
Now you spit out the sky because it's empty and hollow.
both sides now | joni mitchell
(Put this on here for exactly two verses out of the four. Like a boss.)

But now old friends are acting strange
they shake their heads, they say I've changed.

pay the iron price | ramin djawadi
(Mengli makes the choice to seek revenge.)

enemy | chris cornell

Every time I take another breath, I feel the sting.
Everyone around me seems so numb, I feel everything.
No prize, nothing I pay will make it all right.
Nothing I see will make it lose sight.
Nothing I take will make me sleep at night.
siblings of destiny | shigeru umebayashi
(Yuyan and Mengli don't want to fight, but peace isn't in the cards for them.)

cold as it gets | patty griffin
To the end of the earth, I'll search for your face,
for the one who laid all of our beauty to waste,
threw our hope into hell, and our children to the fire.
I am the one who crawled through the wire.
... I know a cold as cold as it gets,
I fight a war I may never see won.
I live only to see you live to regret
everything that you've done.
i need a defense | alexandre desplat
(She was trouble. Which was good, because that was precisely what he was looking for.)

(Or, a little Mengli+Lady Yeh 'clandestinely fucking shit up' music.)


painful memories | normand corbeil

(Headcanon: Mengli's wife and daughter are always there, just below the breastbone; like a good whetstone, they keep him sharp when it's difficult to be merciless.)


time is running out | murray gold
(Even if he survives the rebellion, he won't survive the disease. But he has last days to live out and a war to win.)

the final shore ~ ah, to meet again | yoko kanno
(Mengli's last fight, with the prince captive and the end in sight.)


the drowning plains | mychael and jeff danna
