wishfulaces: (music)
Tonight I saw the Yamato drummers of Japan and they were kickass. The choreography, the theatricality of the show, the backdrops and use of screens and lighting--seriously, the lighting, all these rich reds and oranges of sunrise or sunset and cold blues of twilight and night, and the transitions between were really well orchestrated--and, of course, the drumming itself was brilliant. Talk about fine muscle control, and I think the rhythms are still thrumming through me (I can't imagine how the drummers feel still, an hour or two after the show is over). One guy had John Shepard hair, which was surprising and a little distracting, and he happened to be the main goofball who happened to have a partner in crime that was not at all like Rodney McKay. Actually, John Shepard!hair helped me realize what some of the movements with the drum sticks were strongly reminding me of, why they felt so familiar--Teyla's stick fighting moves. (And speaking of hair, I totally developed an instant girl!crush on one of the drummers, all because of her fabulous, fabulous hair.)

Hey, look! [livejournal.com profile] lunate8 has podficced "Life in the 21st Century" - check it out!. I've never had anybody want to podfic the same story twice before, this is really cool. Actually, the response generally to this fic has been wicked and cool. Oh, Hardison, how you so awesome?

Okay, I'm getting up stupidly early for a weekend in order to go to a pub crawl for cancer with a bunch of people I don't know. This could either go fantastically or be one of the bigger mistakes of my life. Whoopee?

I recorded this for a friend and decided, what the heck, I'll be an attention whore and post it here too.

Title: In the copper light
Author and speaker: aces

Title: Starfire
Author: aces
Word count: approx. 2500 words
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing/characters: the TARDIS, the Doctor, numerous female companions
Rating: all ages
Disclaimer: Doctor Who and its characters and concepts do not belong to me, and no copyright infringement is intended.
Prompt from queer_fest: The TARDIS. The reason why the Doctor's companions have tended to be female actually has little to do with the Time Lord's preferences in such matters.
Author’s note: I wrote this before I saw “The Doctor’s Wife” and was a little startled at how well it meshed. I’ve only done a little tweaking since, to help it fall even more in line with that story (so, y’know, spoilers).
Summary: She made her own choices, every nanosecond of her existence.

Note: On a whim, I've also made this available in audio form (15.5 mb, not quite 16 minutes long, the quality could be better but it's not bad either).
wishfulaces: (travel curse)
Things that annoy the hell out of me:

--Rental upgrades from a basic economy car to a Jeep SUV
--Having to drive said rental upgrades on the interstates of Chicago surrounded by idiots, and being an idiot myself
--airports
--specifically O'Hare International Airport
--Mother Nature
--humanity for fucking up Mother Nature
--the Midwest for having fucked-up weather generally anyway
--having to get up at 3:30 in the morning for a flight that was delayed till 8:45 anyway, after my original flight the night before being canceled, so that I spent about 24 hours with my parents this weekend.

Things that amuse me or make me happy:

--getting ice cream with my dad
--making fudge with my mom
--taking a walk with my dad
--going shopping with my mom
--the three of us actually sitting together in a restaurant at lunch having a conversation (mom doesn't normally do restaurants, she can't hear very well)
--just getting to spend time with my parents.

I'm glad I went home, even if it was a stupidly screwed-up weekend.

Y'all remember my Leverage fic "Life in the 21st Century"? [livejournal.com profile] bessyboo has turned it into a podfic, and you should totally go listen to it now. I listened to it in the middle seat on an airplane and tried very, very hard not to giggle out loud.

I think I had more to say. I'm sure it will come back to me later.

wishfulaces: (fandom collision)
I have friends driving in from out of town this evening. The roads are still not recovered from the massive storm we had at Christmas. And now it's falling steadily again. Screw you, snow!

Hmph.

Fic what I wrote last year, in some rough form of chronological order of publishing date:

February:
Brush Up Your Shakespeare (SG-1, original!team)

some bits and bobs, from prompts that I don't think I ever finished writing...bad me (Dalziel & Pascoe books by Reginald Hill and Man from UNCLE).

April:
Just a Little Confused (NCIS, for the [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest ficathon)
The Inestimable Value of a Good Pair of Shoes (DW, Harry Sullivan may be an imbecile but we love him dearly for it, for the [livejournal.com profile] tardis_gen ficathon)

May:
A Funny Kommandant (Hogan's Heroes, also for the [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest ficathon)

June:
Three Time Travelers in a Boat (DW, for the EDA ficathon on [livejournal.com profile] henriettastreet)
Somebody Else's Conventional (DW, for same ficathon)

July:
Even the Smallest Ripple (DW, EDAs)
A Pleasant Road (SG-1, mostly Cam and Teal'c)

August:
a 5 things prompt (SG-1, 5 things left in Sam's luggage when she went to Atlantis)

September:
Choose Your Own Theft (Leverage/many other fandoms, PARKER RULES)

November:
another 5 things prompt (SG-1, 5 times Daniel was scary)
Sunshine for Your Love (DW, Polly/Martha for the [livejournal.com profile] dw_femslash ficathon)

day in the life (DW, Fitz-at-Torchwood)
Each Other (Man from UNCLE, for the Down the Chimney ficathon on [livejournal.com profile] muncle)
The full weight of our burdens (Dalziel & Pascoe books by Reginald Hill, for Yuletide)

And the two audio fics I read:
Twenty True Stories (DW, written by [livejournal.com profile] kindkit)
In Dulce Jubilo (SG-1, written by [livejournal.com profile] troyswann)

Now for some waffling on about the above )
wishfulaces: (twins)
So, [livejournal.com profile] troyswann, I did this without asking your permission. But I was looking around one day, thinking about what I could get you for a holiday present this year, and then I thought, "Hey, why don't I give that a shot?"

Therefore, I've recorded for your listening pleasure In Dulci Jubilo. You can find a link to it (just over 30 minutes, .mp3 format) here at sendspace.

I hope you like. And that you don't mind that I ruthlessly did this without mentioning it to you. :)

Podfic

wishfulaces: (no fixed abode)
Um, I've never done this before. So there's that.

I read podfic! From [livejournal.com profile] kindkit's fic Twenty True Stories. (There are warnings associated with this fic, so click to the text to read if you want to.)

Here is the link to the audio version (6 mb, mp3 format).

And, uh, there you have it. Huh.
