I have a lot of issues with fanfiction being discussed by uneducated and disrespectful general media and I don't expect Radio 4 to do any better, however, I am going to listen to it and I really hope that by including actual fanfic writers the general tone won't be too offensive.

I'll be adding to this post after I've listened but for now I'm just going to copy my immediate reactions (which I posted on twitter first so excuse the profuse swearing and such) and edit later.

Here's the article about the show
I am already offended by the BBC Radio 4 show on fanfiction because they called it "The Strange World of Fan Fiction" ex-fucking-cuse you??

Why 'strange'? It really pisses me off that people who don't understand it feel the need to comment on it. My lit teacher last year said 
that what I wrote was 'Fifty Shades but homoerotic' and it really really upset me. She's never read any of my stuff, what right does she have to comment? Absolutely none. This show better be done well or the BBC are getting a seriously scathing email

"Naomi talks to 'fanfic' writers and professional authors" also, I consider myself a writer. Just that. Writing fanfic doesn't make me any less than the so-called professionals

Also: "The homoerotic sub-genre known as Slash fiction also has a huge following among heterosexual women as readers and writers." I'm not a heterosexual woman and yet I read and write it. Tbh I'm never going to be satisfied with the media talking about fanfic unless its donerespectfully. Otherwise, don't even try it. We are a HUGE and close knit society, you don't get to fuck with that without consequences

I was just talking about how I basically use LJ as fandom facebook and then I realised I'm a hypocrite because my last facebook post before last night was about 6 months ago and I don't think I've done an actual LJ post where I tell you things ever.

On the agenda today:

I cannot spell hypocrite. I needed to use my google spell checker word inserter thing both times this makes me a bad english student.

I think I might try and do one of these posts every week. A round up post that rounds up all the atrocious grammatical errors, fic faux pas and terrible life choices I have made during the week. Saturday feels like a good day to do this because I have no social life (okay that's a lie I was at parties the last two friday's but still) and Saturdays I have to have early nights so I tend to just blog away into the early hours.

Fic things: I hit 4.4k on my rowing AU this week and unless you follow me on twitter you probably don't know about rowing AU but I cant be arsed to talk about it right now so yeah.

I have too many WIP's to even look at right now.

I have a finished Alpha/Omega fic I wrote for/with Jess (aka. [ profile] i_am_ammo) and I need a beta but I can't find one :((( It makes me sad because I love beta'ing and I do it for a couple of people regularly and for a couple of others occasionally and I pre-read and chat fic with people all the time and yet there is not one person I can find to check over my 4k of One Direction PWP and stroke my ego. 

EDIT: The lovely [ profile] hazzalovescats has volunteered yay! So you'll be getting that (and the sequel I'm working on right now ahh) ASAP :))

I just saw someone's wonderfully organised and colour coded google drive and I am extremely jealous and I'm going to go make mine even prettier.

I've been kind of on and off sick this week and took a bunch of days off and now I have work that was due yesterday but since I didn't go in I didn't bother doing it... I can't decide whether to go in Monday and just pretend I was too sick to do anything and/or pretend that I have done it and that I forgot it and then end up rushing it Monday night to take in Tuesday. Who am I kidding, I'm going to do that.

I can't decide what fandom I want to read in at the moment and though I had a Teen Wolf day this week and read a bunch of things, none of them really stood out and so today I read some 1D, some Inception, some Supernatural, some hockey RPF and some Q-centric Skyfall fic and I enjoyed some of it, and some of it was awful. There was this fic I read this morning that I finished and literally just said:

tweet 1
and then
tweet 2
so that was a pretty bad start. Also because I woke up with a hang over this morning because last night I was at my friends 18th and I didn't get completely blaked, but I was pretty bad. Enough that I didn't remember that I'd set out painkillers, multi vitamins and water for myself. I had a great time and at the beginning of the night I took this photo of me and my friend Sam (it wasn't her birthday), I am on the right!

me and sammy 3

I organised my lappy desktop this week and it looks nice and tidy now

I have exams in a few weeks and I'm so worried about them but not worried enough to actually do more work or anything oops

I have another driving lesson tomorrow at 9am which is awful and it's really icy and foggy at the moment so I'm absolutely dreading that

Fic Rec (this will have to be a weekly thing because I always feel like I should be doing these and mostly I just do it on twitter but I do read atleast one fic a week that needs a proper rec SO in the style of my favourite comm 1D Hot Recs I give you)

(he's) so much more like spiderman than you will ever, ever be (Q-centric, Skyfall)

by [ profile] paperclipbitch

Q, Bond, Eve (slight Q/Bond, implied Bond/everyone, etc etc etc), PG-13, 4825 words

“Bond, we’re Q branch, we’ve forgotten more about your sexual partners than you knew about them in the first place.”

read it because: [viii]

Fred’s got a girlfriend who willingly makes them all cupcakes because it’s still early days and Fred probably lies to her about how lovely all his co-workers are. Kimberley’s got a girlfriend in the CIA and an ex-boyfriend who works in the Pentagon who they use as an asset more often than is probably legal. Serge is a bit of a manwhore because he has pretty eyes, while Sanjit has a secret and desperate love for Jane Austen that probably means he’s going to end up earnestly married sometime, or at least die trying.

Q hasn’t got Karen figured out yet, but that’s fine, because Karen hasn’t got them figured out either.

“We don’t like labels,” Q offers her after a long and complicated conversation about agents Q hasn’t slept with, and agents he has, and things that still go under Classified Information, while they’re waiting for a new software programme to download. 

Karen mutely points to the wall of drawers, which are covered in printed sticky labels covered in small, accurate Helvetica detailing what they contain, down to the last screw size. Some things can’t be slapdash, after all.

“You’ll get the hang of it,” Q offers her; “welcome to Q branch: we run on fluid sexuality, CSS and caffeine.”

Karen retains her sweetly bemused expression.

“Oh, yes,” he adds, “and Haribo.”

I think that might be it!

Ta ta for this week loves! *mwah*

Okay so I just finished watching Teen Wolf and it usually takes me a good few days and lots of talking about it to really form an opinion, but this week, within 10 minutes of the end I had decided how I felt. And honestly? I just wasn’t impressed.

Spoilers below )

Why do I watch this show again? Someone please remind me.

Here is my One Direction Voice Meme!

These have been floating around for a while and I really wanted to do one so today I did! But it's terrible and I have a cold (So HUGE apologies for the constant sniffing omg) and I hate my accent. I can hardly even understand myself so if you need anything translating, give me a bell.

Um, this is also in 2 parts. Because I got to question 3 and got a phone call. So I started again and during my second recording I got ANOTHER phone call and I couldn't be arsed to start again so I did a second part!

The original post is here.
These are the questions, and I hope you enjoy! )

Part 1 - Questions 1, 2, 3 and part of 4
Part 2 - The rest of question 4 and questions 5 through 11

Also, my twitter and mechanicalrain who I mention in part 2 :)

If you aren't looking at all these ficathon's flist, I don't know what you ARE doing.

But anyway, my prompt: (incase anyone feels the itch to fill it for me... :3 ) )

Of all the gloriously wonderful things to find on tumblr I found this rec list of Bottom!Derek fic (since we don't get much of those in TW fandom)

Also, my Teen Wolf rec list! I don't think I've linked this before, so here you go!

If you manage to look away from his face, have a peek at his incredibly perky nipples! LOOK AT THEM OMFG MY COLTON HAYNES OBSESSION IS CONTINUING AND GAINING SPEED AND NIPPLE LOVE.

My favourite One Direction video. For your viewing please. Also, slightly-messy Lou at the end is HOT AS FUCK OH GOD

You're welcome.

Title: I’m not faithless, just paranoid of getting lost

Warnings: M/M interaction, AH, AU, experience of a panic attack, past mentions of trauma (cancer, house fire, car crash, possible sexual/physical/emotional abuse)

AN. This REALLY got away from me, but it was great fun (even if I got teary eyed a few times) and it's easily the most I've ever written for fandom. Seems all these contests are really helping so yay \o/

I don't really know what this is. I wrote it as Cole/Leo at 2am and it's in a weird narrative voice that I love! but that was really really odd to write.

Title: Hammers and Needles
Pairing: Jared Franklin/Peter Bash
Rating: M
Word Count: 469 words
Prompt: So this might sound weird, but from his reaction on the show I think Jared would be more aggressive in the relationship, but the height difference kinda kills it. So... I was wondering if someone could write Jared daydreaming or ya know, spanking the monkey to fantasies of him being the larger of the two! And in these daydreams, he manhandles Peter all the time lol adorable!! Please please and thank you!!
Warnings: Unbeta'd porn, that's what this is.
