Fanmix: Let It Ride - A Roadside Dean/Cas Fanmix

Some time in the Middle Ages I promised [personal profile] mercuries ♥ (hi there! it's been such long time... :( ) a Dean/Cas fanmix because she's that awesome and took me up on my offer. This first mix is more or less set in s4; the first four songs are kinda character study like (and pre-Dean/Cas, therefore: sad, aww!), but after that, this mix doesn't take itself entirely seriously. :D

I'd love to hear what you think! Enjoy! :D

Let It Ride - A Roadside Dean/Cas Fanmix )

DOWNLOAD FROM MF | zip (~75mb) includes 19 songs, cover & lyrics

Up next: Sigh No More - An Apocalyptic Dean/Cas Fanmix! :D

Yahoo is shutting down delicious


There are alternatives (Diigo, but delicious pretty much is exactly what I want and need. It has the firefox plugin, tag bundles and-and! All my fic recs and art recs and meta stuff are there and I have hundreds of fics/art/blogs/private stuff/MY ENTIRE FUCKING ONLINE LIFE on my to-read/whatever list easily accessible with one click! *wails*

Balls. I got my delicious account only a year or so ago and now i don't know what to do without it. Someone, HOLD ME. D:

Well, I guess there are ways to export the bookmarks and I shall just be very very strong... *weeps* Is anyone else on delicious, anyway?

ST.TOS fanmix - Harder Now That It's Over [K/S, Kirk POV]

Previously on the Enterprise: Spock, troubled by his emotions, and struggling with an identity crisis, took off to Gol. This now is Jim being left behind and having to deal with it like everyone else. :/
Happy listening! (Or, in this case, don't be too sad! The Infirmary scene is coming around soon, promise!) God, while working on this I listened to the songs a lot, and had to look up fun stuff on the internet to cheer me up.


Song list )

Wallpaper )

DL links )

I really put a lot of thought into this so if you like it, or hate it, or just want to tell me that your grandma has these, like totally exciting moves with the knitting needles - HIT THAT REPLY BUTTON! :)

I might make the dl-links available via PM's only in, IDK, a week or so? :)

ST.TOS fanmix - Can't Have You (Have Control) [K/S, Spock POV]

A proud Vulcan, troubled by his emotions, is afraid to come too close to a young, ambitious Starfleet captian who's not quite ready to settle down just yet. God, I love how this is just plain classic tragedy: they're doomed from the start because they are who they are. They can't walk away from this, but neither can they be happy with each other (not at this time anyhow). This fanmix follows Spock from the end of their relationship to his departure back to Vulcan. The companion piece will be all about Jim being sad and left behind... :(

Next up: "Harder Now That It's Over (Kirk POV)"!

I'd appreciate it if you'd just drop me a line that you dl'ed, liked it, or simply can't stand the idea of listening to yet another droopy fanmix. :) Just so I get a feeling for how many people are even interested in this, you know? ♥

A New Home

So, you know how livejournal's gonna turn into facebook, and TPTB think criticzing users are fucking assholes who are just out to make their life harder? )

Yeah, here are some Dreamwidth invite codes (for more invite codes or giving away spare ones go here.


I'm thinking the more failjay users switch to DW (or other sites), the less people can say 'but aaaaaall my friends are here at lj!' Of course, I will use my paid account till it runs out (summer next year) but this really feels like the end of a very long line. :(

Thanks again to [ profile] master_kogane for the links. ♥

ST.TOS wallpaper: The Lonely Years

I was working on my CV which - PEOPLE WILL TOTALLY JUDGE! D: So I finished this. Which will also be judged, but my future kinda doesn't depend on it. :D

Also, this was initially meant as cover art for one of my playlists (yes, you guessed it: Kirk/Spock, surrounding the years in which Spock is off trying to get Jim out of his mind and Kirk spends wearing a :/ face) but... I don't know if anyone wants to listen to it. I mean, I've got them, there're marvelous songs that seemed to be made for them, but does anyone want to dl it??

Merlin Wallpaper: A Heavy Cross

Ugh, I never know what to say about these things. By the time I'm finally ready to post my wallpapers, I feel like I've fed them for 18 years, stayed up all night to make them feel better, put some money aside so they can go to a proper college and so on... Which is why, at some point, I kinda just want them gone and having a good life out there so I can have back mine?

But still, let me tell you why I love this one especially: )

Merlin wallpaper: The Time Of The Season


Don't you just love it when the boys are happy? Well, I do. Especially since enough time has passed to block out the wtf-ery of season two, and it's still some time to go to start dreading the third season. Let's just assume that I made it recently and did not start on a stupid wallpaper over a year ago and then completely reworked it, like, twice. Hollah! :D

( 1024 x 768 ) ( 1280 x 1024 )

Say, could you draw me a heart on that? )

Textures made from this wallpaper are here and beautiful, if I say so myself. :)

Feedback makes me put flowers in my hair. ♥

Icon Textures: Our Treasures Are Rainbows


The only annoying thing is that I still don't know when I'll have to dress like a professional again, and whether I should start practicing my table dancing presentation now or next week. Not knowing when the oral exam will be puts a dire cramp on my party schedule. :/ [ /has srs problems ]

Anyway, here are the icon textures I'm sure everyone has been waiting for: made from the Space!Pirates wallpaper series in which Jim and Spock are, well, pirates! IN SPACE!

There are all kinds of colours: blue, golden, turquoise, green, pale blue (red, there's not much red in it, sry)! This one's for when you want all of those colours and about 172 icon textures.

Exams and me, we're done professionally!

I AM DONE WITH EXAMS, PEOPLE, DONE! Except the presentation, I still have to do that one. So, naturally, I'm sitting here in my undies; but it's cool, they're all black and smooth! And hey, yesterday, I didn't even get out of my bathrobe at all so I think I'm definitely moving towards dressing decently again and will be ready to go outside any day now. Still suffering from a bit of post-examination depression though. You know, the one where you're so happy to be free that you want to rip out you eyeballs and don't know what to do first because all those things that you were dreaming of doing once you're free again; that had you waking up in the middle of the night, screaming 'SPOILERS!!!' - there's kinda a lot of it and the day still has only 24 hours.

Anyway, will try and catch up with my flist eventually. But now, off to have another bath! \o/

Btw, just got a cramp in my hand from trying to organize my galleries. Eljay's gallery system isn't very well organized, is it? Or am I just too thick to get it? Easily adding tags and searching by tags is what I want. Or is there a client that lets you add tags and search existing galleries? Hmm, will have to investigate (damn, there goes my bath...) How is everyone else organizing their gifs and stuff?

In which Spock cannot say no to James Kirk.

First off, on a more personal note... )

Now, on to wilder, wetter spheres! I might as well have called this "Star Trek: My Variations Of Cheese."

This is basically what happens when I think about where Kirk would take Spock if they'd still have Halloween (or go undercover on a pirate-controlled planet to secure the continued supply of rum to Starfleet) and no one stops me. Yes, it started with one fugly wallpaper just before Halloween and I just kept coming back to it. BECAUSE IT MAKES ME HAPPYYYYYY.

I wonder what it would look like in a more turquoise tone, or golden... )

Here are a couple icons made from the wallpapers resp. textures made from them. )

And a star to steer her by...

So, there's a new layout. HURRAH. The code was written by the obviously enormously talented [ profile] toledan_night (here). I changed the colour scheme, added a new header and background; and I gotta say, I kinda like it. :) Not quite done, though.

Changing one's layout: A personality test )

In private detecting news, I will FINALLY go and watch Sherlock Holmes on Tuesday. Anyone wanna join? LOOK AT THESE PICS AND TELL ME YOU DON'T WANT TO WATCH IT (AGAIN) )

ST wallpapers: The warm and fuzzy winter feelings

Isn't fandom!Christmas wonderful?? I had joined [ profile] ontd_startrek's Secret Santa ([ profile] ontd_st_ss) and I got THREE FUCKING HANDMADE DELTA SHIELD PAINTINGS, I WAS SO FREAKING EXCITED OMG. And for [ profile] randomyst I made a few wallpapers which you can see here.

(For the record, when I made these I was still somewhat fond of the crap that's still trying to sell itself as snow. :\ )

Ship Wars Prompt Two: Ain't no sunshine when (s)he's gone

So this is the joint entry for the second Ship Wars prompt over at [ profile] st_respect: Ain't no sunshine when (s)he's gone.

And I can tell you, [ profile] ladyblahblah and I totally kicked some artsy ass! She wrote the drabble and I alternatively cried onto my keyboard and laughed hysterically because [ profile] ladyblahblah just does that to me (also, I did the art). Furthermore, [ profile] ladyblahblah would like to inform you that she is totally wearing flowers in her hair right now and never kids; and I wanna tell her again how great it was to work with her. This piece turned out so much better for her input. Thank youuuu! ♥

Only now, it burns. )

Ship Wars Prompt One: Our First Date


But! All is fair in love and war. Plus, there're pictures; it can't be that bad. So this is my entry for the first Ship Wars prompt over at [ profile] st_respect: Our First Date.

Title: Dear Captain's Log
Description: Kirk has a cunning plan! Tonight, no Klingons, Space Nazis, or Other People will stand in his way to his first officer's heart!
Rating: PG-13, due to a word that shouldn't be said in front of kids?
Warnings: none


Transcript which, I hope, won't be needed. Oh boy. )

Ok, so, if there's anything really really wrong (define "really really wrong" as convenient) about it, tell me? I'll try and fix it in time, go team!

A Call To Arms. Also, RDJ and Jude Law.

I was asking [ profile] mata090680 earlier today (THANKS FOR HAVING ME, BTW! :D), "How many wank-free Ship Wars do you know of?" And she would have said none if I'd have let her finish - I may or may not have been a little bit over-enthusiastic about this - but here's the thing. Over at [ profile] st_respect there's a Ship War about to start that will of course not end the decade long battle over which is The One True Pairing in the Star Trek universe. The weapons with which this war is fought are creativity and wit. So, really, in the end, everyone wins. :)

Here's what the introduction says: )


[ profile] chani_atreides is planning an RDJ & Jude Law appreciation outing (entry is flocked so a link would be useless). On Tuesday they'll be at the Cinestar Potsdamer Platz for the Sherlock Holmes premiere (sadly, no tickets for the movie available yet. Meh. ) Anyone wanna go?
