Yes, Francis *is* a boy's name

Hello, Live Journal! It's been...a long time. I'm just making a brief post to let people know that this is the same Sara they met at Ascendio.

I can't promise that I'm going to update very often, however I do want to start checking my flist and commenting on other people's posts so I will be around.

Big wave to all my new friends! :D

I've seen the HBP movie twice now, so I feel like I've absorbed enough to come up with a fairly reasonable review that goes beyond just my initial reactions. The first night, I went to a midnight showing, fully decked out in Hogwarts garb and I had a really great time! While we were seated in the theater waiting for the movie to start, some girl got up in front and suggested that we all sing The Mysterious Ticking Noise from Potter Puppet Pals. She divided the theater into groups and gave each group a part. It was pretty awesome. I really love Harry Potter fans.

So, spoilers after the cut. Beyond the obvious Snape Kills Dumbledore!Collapse )

I've spent a good amount of time thinking about the entire Children of Earth series and reading a lot of what other people have to say about it.

This isn't so much a complete review as it is just a haphazard collection of thoughts and
reactions regarding the series and fandom.

So obviously, the rest of this post will contain SPOILERS for Torchwood Children of EarthCollapse )

I'm back.

It's been a very long time, but somehow I always end up back here at good old LiveJournal.

I missed all my fandoms. And I wanted to be a part of some new ones. And I wanted a vehicle through which I could shamelessly talk about myself in more than 140 characters. So here I am!

I can't sleep, and I've been wondering about this for a while, so I thought I'd make a poll.

I want to know, when you're reading fanfiction, is there anything listed in the warnings or summaries that can be a total deal breaker for you? Definitely what squicks you, but also, is there anything that you're just NOT interested in reading? For example, dub-con squicks me so I avoid that like the plague, but I also stay away from het and established relationships.

My little disclaimer is that we've ALL read stuff that was not necessarily our "thing," so if you normally skip AU's, but you did really enjoy that one where [insert really cool AU plot here] then you should STILL check that you avoid AU's. Hell, I can name 2 Mpregs that I love, but generally speaking...

Also, I obviously couldn't include EVERY warning EVER, so I mostly used stuff that I see coming up a lot. If I forgot anything, please feel free to comment.

Anyway, onto the poll!Collapse )

It's me, the girl who is very nervous about your presence in her favorite show...

But I will say that this week's episode may have had the best title ever.

When I decided to come back to LJ, it was NOT to write whiny, emo posts where I bitch about my mother. But...this is a whiny, emo post where I bitch about my mother.

I was all set to go to sleep and I went to say goodnight to her and maybe chat for a few minutes. But the conversation quickly turned into a round of "Let's Ask Sara All the Questions That Make Her Really Upset." And I know that I do have a habit of ignoring the things that I should be dealing with, but it's so frustrating to have all the things I'm freaking out about thrown back at me in the form of "So what are you doing about this?"

And now all I can think about is what a horrible, unproductive person I am. *sigh*

It's more of the fact that now I can't sleep now because I keep thinking about all the things she said. Most of which she is right about, but who wants to have a conversation about the "direction your life is going in" right before bed?

Well, to say "it's been a while" would be a pretty big understatement.

I haven't looked at my flist or updated my LJ in like 6 months...most of you who left me on your flists probably either don't remember who I am or you resent me for never answering your comments from six months ago. :X I do apoligize...like a lot. And I know I've done this before...I dunno, sometimes I just need to take a step back from LJ [and from fandom] but it seems that I do always come back in the end.

So to all the people that I haven't spoken to in a looong while, I just want to say that I'm going to do my best to get re-acquainted with your lives and that I'm sorry I've been so distant.

I've been missing LJ a lot lately. So...I guess I'm back. :D
