HI!

So, as many of you know, I have wanted to change my LJ name for about six years. That's what happens when you pick your LJ name on a whim, don't plan for it to be where you build a significant chunk of your online identity, etc. When I picked "pervyficgirl," I only planned on publishing a couple of stories on LJ. The "seedier" stories that Fanfic.net wouldn't allow.

LOL, we all know how that turned out, don't we!

Anyway, I spend most of my fannish activity time on AO3 and tumblr these days and I was changing my AO3 name so that it would match my tumblr identity. While I was at it, I figured, "Oh, what the hell, let's fix that pesky LJ problem."

So, officially:

pervyficgirl = [livejournal.com profile] zarabithia

Everywhere.

I do mean everywhere:

Tumblr | AO3 | Pinboard | Fanfic.net | Dreamwidth | and @gmail, if you're so inclined.

I like things to match! I like not being "pervyficgirl" because that has never not sounded ridiculous. :) If you have any links to any of my fic (or my rants ;) ) the links should still work, because LJ says they automatically forward. If you're curious, the name comes from two of my favorite childhood things: Zarabeth and Bridge to Terabithia.

As DC has proven repeatedly, sometimes you just need a good reboot. :)

Anyway, to celebrate my personal reboot! I might do most of my meta over at Tumblr these days, but let's do a quick and fun meme anyway. That is, if the rest of you haven't moved to tumblr, too. :)

Give me a character and I'll tell you a piece of my personal fanon.(If it's a character with multiple incarnations, such as comics and movies, specifiy which one you mean, please.)
zarabithia: (pride: queer legs)
So, HI:

Today is the 10th Anniversary of me publishing my first fanfic on ff.net! (lol, it was TERRIBLE.) BUt anyway, that's a pretty big deal, so celebration times.

Give me a character/pairing and a prompt and sometime during the year, I will write you a fic.

Fandoms:


Anne of Green Gables
Avatar: The Last Airbender
Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
DC Comics
Green Lantern: Animated Series
He-Man
Iron Man: Armored Adventures
Justice League Unlimited
Marvel Comics
Marvel Avengers Movie Verse
Nashville
Once Upon a Time
Push
She-Ra
Star Trek
Ultimate Spider-Man Cartoon
Young Justice Animated

Restrictions:

- I will not write you Regina is a poor woobie fic.
- I will not write you Stony.
- Crossovers are awesome.
zarabithia: (christmas: starbucks)
Your main fandom of the year?

Marvel. A whole lot of Avengers movie verse and a whole lot of Marvel 616.

Your favorite film you watched this year?

Avengers! Obviously.

Your favorite book read this year?

Do comics count? There is no comicbook question here, so I am allowing comics to count. My favorite comic of this year has been Hawkeye. Dear Matt Fraction, please never stop writing Kate Bishop.

(I should probably read more real books this year. Oh, well.)

Your favorite album or song to listen to this year?

Actually, my cable has a bunch of music "Radio" stations and I've found one that plays nothing but 90s stuff. That has been my favorite, because oh hai there, nostalgia.

Your favorite tv show of the year?

ELEMENTARY.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?

OH MY GOD OTHER PEOPLE SHIP CLINT/KATE. Does that count?

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?

Finding out that Sam isn't going to play a significant role in the otherwise excellent Post-Brubaker Captain America series. I'm glad that this writer is giving women agency and personalities in a way that Brubaker failed at, but taking Sam away from the supporting cast is a dick move.

Alternately, the huge disappointment that is Hickman's New Avengers. All cocks, all the time. Get out with that shit, Marvel.

Your fandom boyfriend of the year?

Steve Rogers forever and ever. Though I may have been cheating on him with Sam a lot.

(Sam/Steve/Me: OT3 to end all OT3s.)

Your fandom girlfriend of the year?

Joan Watson.

Your biggest squee moment of the year?

Sarah Rogers telling Steve that he always needs to get back up.

The most missed of your old fandoms?

I miss writing Trek fic! Sometimes I miss writing DC fic, but tumblr reminds me every day that DC fandom stared too long into the abyss.

The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?

I want to write Elementary fic, but I'm terrified (NEW SHINY JOY SQUEE HOW DO I LIVE UP TO IT???)

Your biggest fan anticipations for the coming year?

Iron Man! Star Trek! Thor! A good year to be a geek!
zarabithia: (christmas: starbucks)
Hi. So I've become one of those annoying Dreamwidth people. Be careful what you mock, you might turn into it? I have no moral outrage at LJ. I just can't really read/use much of their website. Additionally, I spend most of my time on [tumblr.com profile] zarabithia so if you really want to chatter at me, that's where I'll be. If you just want to follow fic, LJ/DW/AO3 will work.

I'll still be cross-posting all my fic to LJ (all of it will be uploaded to AO3 so if you'd rather track it there, that's cool) and sometimes to the LJ communities. But if you want to comment, you'll need to do it on DW, because I need my journaling to be central on one site. Also, I'll only be checking DW for reading purposes, because LJ gives me headaches.

You can post via open ID there, if you don't have an account.

-----

Speaking of dreamwidth, [community profile] fandom_stocking is live, which is awesome.


-------

And finally, a meme to try out the new commenting deal! Give me a character/pairing from any of the following fandoms + a holiday song lyric and I will write you a drabble based on it.

fandoms: Avengers movie verse, Marvel Comicsverse, DCnU (new stuff only, I've left the bad old verse behind), Nashville, Elementary
zarabithia: (pride: queer legs)
Give me a pairing/threesome/moresome and a prompt related to the winter holidays, and I will write you something smutty or sweet in three sentences or less.

Relevant fandoms that I'll give a crack: Avengers (movie or comics), Young Avengers, Kaldur related YJ things, Ultimate Spider-Man tv show, DCnU, Once Upon a Time, Elementary, Nashville, Star Trek (TOS, ENT, or Reboot.) If you have Buffy/Faith or LOK Korra/Asami prompts, I'll give them a go, too. Crossovers are cool.
zarabithia: (hug: steve/bucky: movieverse)
Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

who is the big spoon/little spoon
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
who uses all the hot water in the morning
what they order from take out
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
who does most of the cleaning
who leaves their stuff around
who remembers to buy the milk
who remembers anniversaries


zarabithia: (clint and steve)
1. I was never looking forward to Avengers vs. X-Men, because it is yet another Marvel event that can be boiled down to "LOLZ, WOMEN'S POWERS ARE BAD, THANK GOD FOR MEN!"

But having read the previews, I am now referring to it as "Captain America vs. Scott Summer's Man-Pain." It makes the event vaguely more tolerable.

2. In seriousness, I think they did a better job in ONE PREVIEW of showing both sides to the "conflict" than they did in all of Civil War.

And I mean, one of them is hanging out with Magneto and is pretty much a terrorist. That's pretty bad, Marvel.

I'm still Team Steve, though. #steverogersisbetterthanyouandsoishismanpain.

3. I generally blame Watchmen for 50% of everything that I've hated in comics since it was published. (aka, let's be ashamed of writing real superhero comics and let's be ~ADULT~ about it, ftr, Miller can have the other 50% of the blame.)

So the idea that Watchmen is so ~sacred~ that it can never be touched is pretty hilarious to me.

4. Apparently they are casting for the CW Green Arrow Show

Oh, my.
LOL What? )

5. I continue to roll my eyes at people who have ~indignant~ rage about the DC Reboot. And this quote that I stole from someone on tumblr pretty much shows why:

“It’s like people who have favourite doctor whos and won’t watch any other doctors’ episodes, well that by itself isn’t so bad, it’s the ones who then go on to rant and rave about how x was the true doctor and noone else will ever be as good and blah blah blah blah abloobloobloo”

Tom Baker is my favorite, but I’ll be damned if I don’t love Doctor Who for Doctor Who.

LOL, accurate.  I mean, I've basically been comparing the rabid anti-reboot people to people who think 2009 movie ruined Trek forever, but the Doctor Who thing works even better.

(Yes, I am a judgey bitch, thanks for asking!)

And now we'll end on a positive note with a meme:

Give me a character, and I'll list my five favorite pairings and/or platonic relationships for them.

zarabithia: (lol)

Ask me my ‘top 5’ anything. (Examples on tumblr so far have been "Top Five Star Trek TOS characters" and "Top Five DC Reboot Series")

Make up descriptions for all your pairings and post them; see if other people can guess what tags go to which pairings.

So, I did this on tumblr and ALL THE GUESSES were wrong, and I laughed. Then I realized that LJ probably knows my shipping preferences better than tumblr, which is simply a place where I bitch and post pretty pics.

So, I am reposting it on LJ.

4. have been and always shall be: Kirk/Spock, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] fashi0n_mistake.

5. a mud bath: Katara/Toph, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] boosette.

6. when they are bad they are horridly awesome: Buffy/Faith, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] shiny_glor_chan

zarabithia: (and then they had sex)

A. MEME OPTION A: Stolen from tumblr:

1. Give me a fandom and I will tell you:

Favorite Person:
Least Favorite Person:
Most Beautiful Person:
Person I Want to Marry:
Person With Whom I Want to Be Best Friends:
Person With Whom I Would Have No-Strings-Attached Sex
Favorite Pairing:
Unpopular Opinion:


B. MEME OPTION B: Stolen from tumblr, which is still a weird place to write fic, imo, so LJ/DW can get it instead. :)

1. Give me a pairing (No Steve/Tony, Kate/Eli or NCIS m/m slash, please.)
2. Give me a text from last night.
3. I'll write you a drabble or ficlet based on the scenario.


You can give me up to three for both memes. :)  Any of the standard fandoms apply.







This entry was also posted on Dreamwidth. Comments are welcome on either site.
zarabithia: (trek: old spock)
I really like this article about the reboot. :) Mostly because it has the most sensible comment I've read yet about the reboot:

"When 52 comes out," added Marz, "you guys get to vote with your dollars from day one. Nobody is going into this saying, 'Let's screw with the fan boys!' Everyone is saying 'Let's do something really cool that people are going to really get behind.'"

If I wasn't already buying Voodoo, I would for that comment alone. I can't wait for the indignant Tumblr rage to hit about it.  

Also, good to see that the JSA are going to show up again. Maybe we can quit pretending that everyone who doesn't headline a book in September is going to be erased from existence?

30 Day Fanfic Meme, The End )
zarabithia: (avengers)

Two quick recs:

Just Temporary, Ma'am | Thor | Darcy Lewis/Clint Barton | R
Summary: In which Darcy procures a fake boyfriend in order to get Jane off her tits about this "Darcy doesn't have any friends" thing. Which is ridiculous, Darcy has over 300 friends.
Why You Should Read: This is fucking hilarious, and I literally laughed out loud several times.

To Have and To Hold | Captain America: The First Avenger | Steve/Bucky | PG-13
Summary: The little moments where one fell deeper in love with the other
Why You Should Read: It's so very much them, and it will break your heart and make you glad about it.

30 Day Fanfic Meme, Day 3:

Day 11 - Genre – do you prefer certain genres of fic when you're writing? What kind do you tend to write most?

I basically prefer pwp, slices of life, and future fic. I don't like writing long plotty things, and I don't like writing action or adventure or mystery. So I tend to stick with my slices of life, and if I can set them in the future, it's all good. I like het/gen/male slash/female slash, and I write a little bit of all of it.  If I write too much male slash or too much het, I feel like I'm in a rut and I consciously break away to write something else.

Day 12 - Have you ever attempted an "adaptation" fic of a favorite book or movie but set in a different fandom? I do this with Buffy a lot - in fact, my Star Trek Big Bang is an "adaptation" of Buffy in the Trek universe (no, none of the men are slayers, because that is my biggest pet peeve in the world.)

Day 13 - Do you prefer canon or fanon when you write? Has writing fanfic for a fandom changed the way you see some or even all of the original source material?Wordy Pervy is Wordy )

Day 14 - Ratings – how high are you comfortable with going? Have you ever written higher? If you're comfortable with NC-17, have you ever been shocked by finding that the story you're writing is G-rated instead? I like all sorts of ratings - from G to NC-17. I'm not really very fussy about it. Most of my stuff falls right in the middle.

Some days, you need some nice, porny Uhura/McCoy/Kirk fucking in a cave. Otherdays, you  need Dick and Lian taking Lian on her first patrol. I think fanfic would be very boring if I only wrote one of the two all the time.

Day 15 - Warnings – What do you feel it most important to warn for, and what's the strangest thing you've warned for in a fic? Wordy Pervy is Wordy Again )
zarabithia: (steve: contemplative)
If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach. -- Alfred Hitchcock

What would you expect to find in my fic?
zarabithia: (wally west and his turtle)

A. The Meme Where I Tell You My Feelings: Name a fandom (My primary fandoms are here, if you need a refresher course.) , and I will tell you:

The first character I fell in love with.
The character I never expected to love as much as I do now.
The character everyone else loves that I don't.
The character I love that everyone else hates.
The character I used to love but don't any longer.
The character I would shag anytime.
The character I'd want to be like.
The character I'd slap.
My five favorite characters.(depending on the fandom, this may not apply.)
My five least favorite characters..(depending on the fandom, this may not apply.)
My deep dark fandom secret. (I'm not sure I have any secrets. I don't tend to hold back. But I'll try to think of something.)

B. The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I write AND give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU, superhero AU, etc) or another time period (Ancient Rome, Regency England, etc). I will then explain the gist of the story I would write for that AU.

C. The meme from my last entry: Everyone has things they write about. Everyone has things they don't write about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me pairings/fandoms/something I don't write about, but you'd like me to write about.

Hit me up, flist. I am working hard today, I have feminine related cramps, and I need something to unwind to so that I can write porn ficlets when I settle down after I finish my freelance projects tonight.
zarabithia: (kate)
After not being able to write anything in June, the muses came back full force in July! Bizarrely, it was all Marvel fic in July. Hopefully, the current porn battle will change things up a bit (and considering that I'm in the middle of a Buffy/Faith knifeplay fic, oh, I think the outlook is good on that front. :) )

July Masterlist )

So who knows me best?

I am screening comments, because some of these are kind of personal and do not need to be public. :)
zarabithia: (girl kisses)
Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

1. What they most commonly do during sex
2. Who has prettier hair
3. What they argue about most often
4. Who'd cope best if the other one died
5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.
zarabithia: (Jaime: adorable)
1. [livejournal.com profile] queer_fest is having an Amnesty Week. THAT IS AWESOME. You should go participate, because anyone can, and there are no word limits during Amnesty Week.  And now I will get to finish my [livejournal.com profile] queer_fest fics, horray!

2. [livejournal.com profile] femslash_today is taking prompts for their porn battle. Someone requested Kate Bishop/Sharon Carter. Um, yes, please? I like how people obviously want me to ship Kate Bishop with almost everyone in existence.

3. Ugh, I would rather never see Cass or Steph again if the alternative is Gail Simone writing them. Ick.

4. Jaime, why does DC hate you so much? I will still be buying it, to support Jaime Reyes, but damn. That book is going to be like shoving hot pokers into my eyes. And my soul.

5. While I am bitter about Jaime's new awful writer,  I am not quite ridiculous enough to go to a protest about it. At a con. I'm just saying. If I was, though, I would totally wear a costumed designed on Tim Drake's new feathers.  

6. OMG, there is something in the water on tumblr, making almost everyone full fledged, off the wall ridiculous. Dear flist, never change and please don't spontaneously become ridiculous.

7. CLINT AND KATE THIS WEEK. I will ship Kate Bishop with almost anyone, but damn those two in that one page were more entertaining than any of Kate's canon ships. Which isn't new, really. And the less said of Clint's current canon love life, the better.

8. This week has been super stressful. In the spirit of the week that is giving me migraines, two memes to choose from (shhh, distractions are good) :

A. Pick a character and a subject and I'll tell you my headcanon for it. Can be anything from their favorite color to their daily routine to things of a very TMI nature. (feel free to pick multiple characters)

B. Alternately, toss three characters at me for a game of Marry, Shag, Cliff.  (for those of you that are new, I am fond of all genders.) I'll toss you three in return.

C. Alternately, do both.
zarabithia: (yj: kaldur animated)
Pick your five favorite TV shows (in no particular order) and answer the following questions about them. Don’t cheat!

1. White Collar
2. YJ Animated (are cartoons cheating?)
3. Avengers: EMH (yes, they probably are, but do I care?)
4. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the meme didn't say anything about them being current tv shows!)
5. Doctor Who

Who is your favorite character in 2?
Kaldur. Far and away, Kaldur. *draws sparkles around his name on my trapper keeper.*

Who is your least favorite character in 1?
Hmmmmmmm. I don't really hate anyone on this show? I feel like Kate's development was terrible, so we can go with her.

What is your favourite season in 5?
Hahahahahaha. Last season. When Amy was the best. Though the current season has its perks too.

What’s your favourite ship in 3?
lololol. You give me two characters from that show, I ship 'em. Currently I am fond of Faradei/Clint Barton, though. Elf porn ftw.

How long have you watched 1?
Since it premiered. Which, I think, is cero's fault.

How did you become interested in 3?
Ahaha. I am a comics geek? i knew it was coming on? I watched?

Which show do you prefer, 1, 2, or 5?
Aha. I watch all of them! White Collar and Doctor Who are having tiny bumps in their road currently. But they are also giving me BEAUTIFUL CANON GIRLFRIENDS and Sexy con-men, so. In the end, I have to go with YJ animated. Because I am a geek. Also, because I really like the variety of women they give.

Which show have you seen more episodes of, 1 or 3?
There have been more eppies of White Collar, so I have seen more eppies of that show. :)

How would you kill off your favorite character in 1?
Clearly Diana would decide that the FBI is too corrupt and she would fake her death and Christy's death. Then they would go have many epic and sexy adventures together abroad.

Would a 3/4 crossover work out?
Buffy & the Avengers? Not going to lie, I keep plotting "Buffy meets the superheroes" stories. You'll probably get one from me, eventually. Mostly because I keep reading them on Twisting the Hellmouth and they keep being TERRIBLE (and ways to bash Buffy. :| ) My healthy, healthy ego says I can do better.

Pair two characters in 1 that would make an unlikely, but strangely okay couple.
Mozzie and Jones! They would be awesome together. And I have written it. Strange ships are my crack.

Has 5 inspired you in any way?
Amy Pond inspires me EVERY DAY.

Over all, which show has a better cast, 3 or 5?
Avengers: EMH is a great show, but I keep being bitter about the fact that they cast a voice actor who sounds like he should be playing Barry Allen to play Captain America. Dear show, Steve Rogers is not from Iowa.

So in that regard, Doctor Who wins. PLUS, Amy Pond's actress is gorgeous. (Okay, and Martha and Donna and Rose and Eleven and Nine and Jack and Mickey all had lovely actors, too.)

Which has better theme music, 2 or 4?
Buffy's music is superior to all.

zarabithia: (dw: threesomes are cool)

Tell me a fandom or a character, and I will tell you:

            * My OTP
            * My OT3
            * My guilty pleasure ship
            * A ship that makes me nauseous
            * A ship that is too fluffy for words
            * A ship that gives me nightmares
            * The sexiest ship to ever set sail

oh, what the hell? It's Sunday, I'm bored, I have cramps, and it looks like it's trying to storm. A good day for ship ranting (I will even try to be diplomatic! Though in case you haven't caught on by now, I have the diplomacy skills of the average Klingon. And if you haven't caught on to that fact by now ... you must be new.)

You can give me a fandom OR a character or what the hell, both. I have lots of opinions. Hell, give me multiples.

I figure most of you know my fandoms, but if you don't, you can consult my sexy organized fandom list on tumblr.
