Defended my thesis today. Went well. Have an MA degree now. I can finally do fuckall. (And write more GK fic). Life is good.

(In other news, porn battle (and Kubis) made me write GK college AU. It's here. And here. And here. And here. Yes, it's four bits so far and going strong.)

* I am close to being done with school. All the exams and final projects are done, the post-grad in Audiovisual Translation is over with, and all that's left at UJ is my MA thesis defense. I'm super-nervous about this one, but also kind of happy about it. And sad that this is the end.

* Wednesday is my last day at work. Kids are off for holidays already, my adult groups finish on Wednesday.

* I'm starting a course in French on Thursday. Three hours of learning French every day for the whole of July. Because I fail at holidays that are actual, you know, holidays.

* Generation Kill fandom. I don't know how one fandom can be so awesome, but it is. There's no bad fics. No, really. Everything is scary good. I'm reading the same fics over and over again and they just don't get old.

* American Idiot Original Broadway Cast. Stark Sands, how so awesome? Cast, how so fantastic? It's the first cd that survived more than a week in my car and I'm not tired of it yet. 21 Guns OMG.

* Watching Generation Kill. Still. And again.

* True Blood. Watching True Blood goes like this: boring. boring. boring. ERIC! ERIC ILU! boring. ewww. shut up, Bill. boring. boring. ewwww. boring. ERIC! DON'T GO ERIC! boring. boring. PAM! ILU PAM! boring. ...did they just? huh. well. hbo. (ERIC!)

* Leverage is back.

* I have a pile of shiny books that I have been accumulating for ages and didn't have time to read due to: school, work, and school. Soon it will be reading orgy tiem.

* [ profile] cala_jane and I are almost ready to take over the world. We're just that awesome.

* Generation Kill fic writing. Awesome.

If/When you have kids, in what order are you going to have them watch Star Wars? If you already have a kid, what order did they watch in?

This has been long time in the making, and it's going to be pretty long itself.

I have been intrigued with vids since the beginning of my fandom existence. I made some (they were mediocre) and I watched a lot, and I have fallen in love with the medium, just as I have fallen in love with fanfics. Vids, like any other form of fandom expression, can be shippy or thinky or awesome or cute or beautiful or heartbreaking. Sometimes they can be all of those things at once.

Noelia loves her job

Kid 1: Miss, you know, when I grow up, I want to be just like you. Only, you know, normal.
Noelia: ...

Kid 2: Shiny vampires are stupid.
Noelia: YES!
Kid 2: Although, I assume, useful as a nightlight.
Kid 3: Doesn't work like that, they shine only in the sun.
Kid 2: *thinks about it* Shiny vampires are more stupid than I thought.

Kid 3: *has places to be right after class* Miss, can I make the time go faster?
Noelia: Not without a time-turner, no.
Kid 3: And what if I was a Jedi, could I make the time go faster then?
Noelia: Well, you could probably move the clock's arms with your telekinesis. Or make me think it's time to end the class with your Jedi Mind Trick. But actually speeding up time, no, I don't think so.
Kid 3: And what if there was a lot of Jedis. Could their powers accumulate and could they make the time go faster?
Noelia: Don't think so, but I can consult the wookiepedia for you.
Kid 3: Thank you, Miss. And would you like to end the class early to do so now?
Noelia: No, I would not.
Kid 3: Meh.

Noelia loves her studies

Noelia goes to have her grade from the previous exam in the History of the English Language written as her grade from this year (it's a fun thing you can do at Polish Universities if you had taken a course before that you're supposed to take now).
Prof: Oh, I think I remember you from classes. You actually looked intelligent.
Noelia: ...thank you?
Prof: But why were you attending classes if you had already have the grade from this course?
Noelia: I like classes.
Prof: Yes, I thought you looked intelligent...
Noelia: ...

Classes in translation, subtitles edition.
Noelia: *reads out her work in her composed, calm, classroom-appropriate voice. her work consists mostly of all the polish equivalents of the words you can't say on tv, because we're working on translating the swear words*
Prof B: Well done.
Noelia: *musing* You know, it feels quite liberating to say things like that in an academic setting and not only be penalised for it but lauded for the work.
Prof B: LOL.

two weeks later:
Classes in translation, dubbing edition.
Class: *working on 'Angry Kid' which has quite a few swear words on it*
Prof K: And would miss Joanna like to read it out loud? I've heard she likes to swear.
Noelia: ....srsly. That's the staff room's opinion on me, apparently.

In conclusion: lol.

So, I survived the internet-less weekend. I am slightly less addicted than I thought I was, as I didn't get any rash, and didn't hallucinate, or whatnot. I am, however, really happy that I'm back.

First, I got a package! From [ profile] jane_potter, a box full of candy canes. Apparently, the polish post office sucks and can't make a christmas delivery in time for christmas, but I don't care that much because CANDY CANES. <33333 Jane, thank you so much! *dances*

Also, things I've learned while working on my MA thesis over the weekend.

1. Noelia couldn't stick to her estimated wordcount to save her life. 6000 words into the chapter on Morgan le Fay she finally gets to what she wanted to write about. Oh, well.

2. This is going to be one long thesis.

3. Thinking up an Arthur/Merlin ice skaters AU is not a productive use of my time.

4. Is there an Arthur/Merlin ice skaters AU somewhere aleady?

5. Watching Merlin fanvids is a productive use of my time, actually.

6. When I talk about my thesis, I start with hand gestures. And I bounce. And I flail. And, just sometimes, I randomly exclaim 'Morgana For The Motherfucking WIN'. My thesis defence is going to be something else, I can tell now.
noelia_g: ([lev] eliot/parker :: hit like that)
1. I'm gonna be offline for a few days, I'm going to Grandparents' house, because they're going to a wedding for the weekend and someone needs to look after Great-grandma.

2. How awesome was Leverage finale?

3. Leverage-related. I have this idea for a crossover in which Bruce Wayne needs to take some time off (cuz, dunno, BANE?) and calls Eliot Spencer to take over for a while. Because they met in that Chinese Prison, or whatever (yes, it is related to the stolen monkey plotline. They looked after the monkey together, you see). And Eliot comes to Gotham and becomes Batman for a few months and fights crime. It's the true story of what Eliot did between s1 and s2 of Leverage. Also in the fic: Alfred facepalms a lot and Jim Gordon is confused.

noelia_g: ([wc] elizabeth :: a small hint)
1. Puns always intended, White Collar, Neal Caffrey/Peter Burke, hotel.

2. Things unsaid, Batman (Nolanverse), Bruce Wayne/Jim Gordon, shield.

3. And if you want me, I'm your country, White Collar, Neal Caffrey/Peter Burke, mine.

And I'm done with the porn battle, it's been a blast. Now: [ profile] au_bigbang Kirk/McCoy White Collar AU, and the [ profile] help_haiti fic for [ profile] inell are in the works.

Then, finishing up Both Sides Now (I am beginning to see the first part of the prelude to the beginning of the end ;D), then Neal Caffrey/Chuck Bartowski fic for [ profile] lunatics_word, working on the 'I'd give up forever', and White Collar/Batman femslash with Diana/Renee... and then we'll see. [ profile] kubis made a list of the fics I have lined up. I think it's well into double digits.

This is an awesome year ;D

If you & I woke up in jail together...using only FOUR words...what would you say to me?

I'm not a stickler to the FOUR words rule, however. Say whatever you want.

(Appropriate icon is appropriate)
noelia_g: ([cross] lev/wc :: parker/neal :: best th)
I am really happy I'm over with my midterms, or I'd be in trouble...

1. Make It Happen, Wizards of Waverly Place, Alex/Justin, fake

2. A moment in time, Buffy the Vampire Slayer/White Collar, Dawn Summers/Neal Caffrey, any

3. Surveillance, Leverage/White Collar, Parker/Neal Caffrey, confusion.

5. Watch’d for token of expected fate, Merlin, Arthur/Morgana, legend, Avalon
noelia_g: ([lev] ot3 :: staff meeting)
Sooo, I am going a bit crazy with the 9th porn battle. Probably not over yet.

1. While it will feel ridiculous, it will look awesome, Chuck, Bryce/Chuck, Star Trek Reboot.

2. Quiet, Bruce Wayne/Jim Gordon, phonecall, emptiness, forgiving.

3. Best Laid Plans, Leverage, Alec/Eliot/Parker, couch, marathon.

4. The Male Pregnancy Conundrum, The Big Bang Theory, Leonard/Sheldon, theoretical, reproduction.

5. The Storm I've Been Needing, White Collar, Neal Caffrey/Peter Burke, 5-years-later
noelia_g: ([c&h] tv :: that's a religion for me)
And you get to play too.

If there is a fic you'd want me to write in 2010, please leave the request in comments. You know my fandoms; you can go with the fandoms I do write or request something different, any pairing imaginable or gen, squaky clean or complete porn. I'm not making promises, but I'll try my best.

(Don't waste your requsests on: 'finish story X', I know and I'm working on them, at different pace and with varying success, but I am :D)
noelia_g: ([fri] peter :: LL&P)
I have updated my website with all finished fics. WIPs are not there yet, because it's easier to post them once they're done.

To celebrate, meme!

1. Go to my master fic listwebsite and pick out a line or two from one of my stories. (A full line, if you will; a speech tag with content is fine, but sentence fragments will mostly just make me repent the day I decided I like the occasional sentence fragment.) website here
2. I will respond with which story of mine I think it's from.
3. A drabble to anyone who stumps me. If you do stump me, feel free to request a situation and characters.

(I can already say I will have trouble with most of the long Batman stories, damnit :D)
