If you're tagged, you do it. You can change any question you don't like, but it has to be for something original. When you're done, tag 8 more people. Don't refuse to do this step.

I'm sorry, I refuse. If you want to answer questions, leave a comment below and I'll leave you some. :)

[livejournal.com profile] del_naja tagged me, so here are some answers )

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.

Apparently I hear that The Big Read reckons that on average most adults have only read six book on this list. Huh, I say.

wot i have and haven't read )

Seeing as how I fail at concentrating on work today, here's the answers to the questions meme I posted in, um, November.

Favorite kink?
You mean I have to choose just one? Hmmm. I like the idea of power imbalance and dubious consent, but I also like more innocent things like a really hot kiss that is a the climax of much yearning, or in fact just plain yearning. Although, I think I'm twisting porn kinks together with story kinks there but they are hard to tease apart, as the tentacle monster said to Sanzo.

Stupid question (but I'm stupid): do you prefer hakkai/gojyo or gojyo/hakkai? and why?
As in, who's on the top or bottom? I think either way is good, and for different reasons, but I don't have one set view of how they'd have sex together.

Do you write hakkai and eli writes gojyo, or does it work differently--I've always wanted to know!
When we work together we take turns in writing the whole thing, so we both write everyone. It obviously helps that we have generally a similar view of the characters, although the nice thing about writing with [livejournal.com profile] emungere, and I guess this is the same writing with anyone, is that they bring fresh interpretations of the character to the story that I would never have thought of. Sometimes it's like being hit over the head with a plank, but in a good way.

I was curious about your age. I've been noticing most people in my friends list - especially my favorite writers and the people I relate to the most - are much older than me. I am nineteen.
I was 38 years old last Friday so I'm exactly twice your age, young missy! People frequently tell me I look younger than that, which I greatly enjoy hearing.

Fuck marry kill: nii, hakkai, tenpou?
This is surprisingly hard... The only sensible thing would be to fuck Nii (a man of experience!), marry Hakkai (efficient housework) and kill Tenpou (a war god would be a nightmare to live with). Answers on a postcard, please.

How did you come by your LJ name?
My website used to be called fiat lux, back in the days of early Harry Potter fandom, and that was partly inspired by wanting something fancy and partly from the mural on the library of my home town (It says: Pax Lux). Louise Lux just seemed the easiest choice when I joined lj. I like having my real name as part of my fan name.

How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie roll pop?
I have absolutely no idea! I don't even know what a tootsie roll pop is. I keep imagining some sort of sausage in batter, but that might just be the fever dreams. Please tell me the answer!

When you're posting stories to lj, does having an audience that you sort-of know/are friends with ever help or hinder what you've written?
When I think too hard about a potential audience composed of friends/acquaintances, it can do both. I don't want them to think of me as a freak or a pervert. Or, more accurately, I don't want them to look askance at my writing peccadilloes, overused plot devices, overdone kinks, cliches. Knowing that an audience is judging me by my stories can make me try harder to be good, because partly I want to impress them, but it also carries with it a fear of failure that could also be stifling. Honestly, I try not to think to much about my audience when writing or even before posting. I think about them afterwards instead. However, sometimes I am writing for a specific audience, maybe only one person, and that does make a difference as I might try and include things I think they like. The trouble with that this is easy to get wrong, not being psychic.

How do you always stay so nice? You've always treated everyone with the most kindness and I'm just really awed, impressed, and amazed.
Um, thank you! I try quite hard to treat people in the way I'd like to be treated. That's not to say I'm always nice, because that would be odd. Sometimes I'm callous and strange.

It's friday, day of pointless memes! I gacked this one from [livejournal.com profile] glitterdemon

It's the TV shows you have seen meme. I added some more UK ones to it.

Bold the ones you've seen and italicise ones you've seen every episode of. Add three more if you can: shows )

I just put my name into the Cheese Comparator.

My cheese rating is: Gorgonzola

"Gorgonzola is a semi-soft blue cheese made in the village of the same name in Northern Italy. The cheese is yellow/white with green/blue penicillin mould marbling giving a sharp, spicy flavour."

Mmm, cheese.

Mail squee: I got a Happy January card in the post today, which was a very nice thing to receive and something that should become a tradition. Inside was the most fantastic story about Gojyo and Hakkai. I read it on the train and cooed happily over it for a long while, rereading and generally clutching it to my breast with joy. So, thank you [livejournal.com profile] rheasilvia: you made my commute to work today a very happy thing.

I was going to post a timestamp meme fic this afternoon, but I forgot to bring it on my stick to work, woe. But, see, I have been writing them!

Also, my spectral meld - whatever that is )
louiselux: (Default)
[livejournal.com profile] miss_anthropy I got your new years card. It's beautiful and so is the crane. Thank you.

A quick note while I'm here - I still have things to post out to people. So if you get a card in February with a picture of a half naked ice skating man on the front and Merry Christmas written across it, that will be me. I'll just be over here, behind the times. Ummm. The cards are too good to waste, seriously.

I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] daegaer and [livejournal.com profile] cmda_alexanda

Each player of this game starts off with 10 weird things/habits/little known facts about yourself. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 10 weird habits/things/little known facts as well as state this rule clearly. At the end you need to choose10 people to be tagged and list their names. No tagbacks.

involves more stuffed tigers )

So now I am tagging [livejournal.com profile] new_kate, [livejournal.com profile] hibem, [livejournal.com profile] emungere, [livejournal.com profile] vom_marlowe, [livejournal.com profile] devikun, [livejournal.com profile] trensaddiction, [livejournal.com profile] miss_anthropy, [livejournal.com profile] tboy, [livejournal.com profile] i_am_zan and [livejournal.com profile] toscas_kiss

I'm still in my queen of the night pajamas, meaning I have 15 minutes to get washed and dressed and out the door and not be late for lunch.

The morning is going very slowly, yes. The work christmas do yesterday afternoon went well, by which I mean no one got so drunk they couldn't speak and I didn't cry, unlike last year (my boss was the one who got so drunk etc). Arm news: it is quite a lot better than this time last week. Less pain, far fewer tingles. My osteopath on Friday was blond and handsome and blue eyed. Bonus.

I can't get my head round this meme - it makes my brain hurt. Does it mean: if fandom was a fandom and we were all characters in it? Or does it mean look at my lj and all the fandoms in it?Aargh I am thinking too hard.

If my lj/[livejournal.com profile] louiselux was a fandom:

a. Who would people ship me with?
b. Who would be my arch-nemesis?
c. What would a Mary Sue in my fandom be like?
d. When or how did I/will I jump the shark?
e. Write a one sentence summary of the story that would win the Best Fanfic Award in my fandom.
f. What would a typical badfic involve?
g. Who would be the BNFs in my fandom?
h. Why would my fandom end up on fandom_wank?
louiselux: (Default)
It's like trick or treat, only not really. Leave a comment and I will post something for you, ie, fic snippet, a song, a picture, a poem or something else random that I think of.

note: tricks and treats will vary according entirely to my whim

ps - comments will be answered when I get home a little later

personality meme )

So, I am prone to bingeing, anxiety, friendliness, being imaginitive, extremely incautious and trusting people. A lot. Somewhere in the whole report it says, rather crushingly, "You lead a moderately paced life" and " You... have been known to procrastinate".

*plods on*

I have finished Vasily the Frog (ie the first draft, so not at all really).

The secret perversions challenge ideas were fabulous, btw. Thank you! The main problem I have had was deciding which one to do first. Also, I wonder what it is about the stripper and prostitute scenarios that inspires us with such guilty pleasure... or just pleasure?

Also, here's the ten things about me meme )
louiselux: (Default)
I'm going to attempt that futile women's exercise of buying some new trousers that both a) fit and b) look good. Wish me luck.

Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] telophase: select words that describe me. It's designed to illustrate how my perceptions of me and your perceptions of me differ.

and as [livejournal.com profile] telophase points out, they're all fairly positive terms so it'll be hard to unwittingly offend me-- or wittingly, even.

Now it is my turn to ask you questions, if you want 'em.

Memory meme

From [livejournal.com profile] lexin, who did not chase me with a spatula.

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don't speak often, please post a comment with a memory of you and me. It can be anything you want, either good or bad. I promise not to come after you with a spatula, either way.

When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people remember about you.

That meme, gakked from [livejournal.com profile] daegaer: Chances are people you don't even know are being introduced to your journal every day, either randomly or through someone else. In addition to recent entries, people can get to know you better by what you posted in the past. With that in mind, post a link to your entries on this day six months ago, nine months ago, a year ago, and two years ago.

Six months ago: I saw a fascinating hairstyle on my walk to work and posted the Saiyuki British teenagers AU

Nine months ago: I had a broken toe and was spending my time writing Crowley/Crowley handshaking it preg on [livejournal.com profile] lovelyzelda's memorable comment thread of dooom.

One year ago: I was being mugged by my protestant work ethic and I tried to go to work ill. What a silly thing to do. I'd never do that again! Says the woman who's been going to work feeling like crap for two weeks.

Two years ago: I was planning my nanowrimo, the only year I did it. It was horrendously tiring and I don't think I'll ever want to do it again. My main idea then seemed to be based round Aziraphale in a unitard and spaceships and 'things'. How ironic - back then I said I had the ending all ready, but I never did finish it.
