Fannish Things To Do in 2013

Make public announcements of your goals on your LJ, Tumblr, Twitter, FB, whatever. You get positive reinforcement from everyone's encouragement, look forward to announcing victory, and feel pressured to live up to the expectations you set up.

I tend to think I have so many fannish things to do/make but there's not enough time to do, but when actually have/find the time, it's like I forget all the things I want to do, just sit and let the time slide by. In one of [livejournal.com profile] insmallpackages threads I found this 'all the tricks in the world to ward off writer's block/extreme procrastination' list by [livejournal.com profile] desertport (another ones by others here and here) and I particularly find this potentially useful/inspiring, and thus made the post following it. It's a lot of things to do for a person slow like me, but I like to believe I will do them all!

*This is an incomplete and ongoing list, and it will be edited/updated constantly (hopefully). Feel free to watch the space, I can't promise anything but you're welcome to post the requests too, doesn't matter if we've known each other or talked before. It also doesn't matter if the requests are of my fandoms, as long as I can get my hands on the clips/caps I can try making something for you.

*I'll be marking the finished/published/delivered ones with #, so if you want to see how little my achievement is or just curious which ones are done, simply press CTRL + F and type #. ;)

~ 'NCIS: LA' Cast Reacts to O'Donnell Directing


This is all over the place and I know you don't need to be reminded anymore but this Tuesday/March 5/TOMORROW's episode (4.17 'Wanted') is Chris O'Donnell's director debut asdfghjkl;:!!! So you all US people, just tune in and please PLEASE make it a blast!

I tried to watch the video but I couldn't - just couldn't, I tried to read the text but even it was impossible, I'm way too nervous. But I've heard that they said really nice things so if you haven't yet I think you should (and tell me about it)? I'll probably watch it sometime on summer or something, after forever.

OOOOMG, I'm all yes and no and no and just no and YESYESYES but NO and I don't know what to think or feel anymore. I've been so nervous ever since the reports and pics have started to pop up and seriously it's been months and I thought I can't be any more nervous but now I'm getting even more and more restless and ball of nerves, yeah yeah I know it's not a big deal everybody does this sort of thing these days but I'm so not ready for this episode for so many reasons, not only THIS reason, oh I'm so happy for him, so happy that this show is giving him all the opportunity and the greatest things to achieve and experience and he's getting and doing the best but OMG it's his director debut whuuuut, oh why did they even think it'd be a good idea he's not built for this why did they even allow him to direct a freakin' TV episode it's like let 4 years old go run first ever errand on his own it's killing me and I just can't and won't watch it anytime soon so you guys need to let me know what it's like and how it went okay? *iz crazy*

And posting Sam/G gifs I made in about... last six months (?? I think some of them are even older), the ones I haven't posted in the communities (most of them are already somewhere in my journal), and the ones I was still able to find, I'm sure there's more but I can't find them anymore lol. Only gifs this time, I know some of you aren't into them at all so sorry about that. And I swore to myself I would make more LA things that's not about Sam/G, any pairings (particularly m/m - because we need more love for the gay love on this show), and I'm still only making Sam/G things. D'oh. /o\ And I thought - it'd be so great if you all could help me with ideas. Throw me any moments/scenes you'd like to be iconed or gif'ed and I'll add them to my to-do list. I can't promise to get anything done sooner as I'm slow ok ok I'll stop but I will do it.

2 gifsets and 6 gifs under the cut, I didn't bother with the spoiler tags so beware. :)

Ughs, blahs, pics and gifs of cats and dogs and gays

So yesterday one of those family things decided to go kaboom on me and ruined the whole day - it was a total WTF and it's making me feel like shite and think a lot of not so happy things, also a lot of unpleasant things I want to do *to* people. :/

(But at least I managed to submit my art prompts to [livejournal.com profile] primeval_denial's Art Prompt Challenge last night, all thanks to the patient and kind [livejournal.com profile] lsellersfic. It was much too late for me to realize its existence and I had like only half a day to make art so my submissions are serious rubbish, and if someone signed up for the groups my prompts are in... I think I should apologize to them. :S But I've seen those kind of challenges going around (writers write fics for art, not artists make art for fics) and wished there's one in my fandoms so I just couldn't miss the opportunity.)

So today instead of doing anything productive in RL, I've mostly stayed in bed and have done nothing but staring dully at PC screen. OHYAY. And now I'm actually feeling a tad better, too. SO, YAY?

And while I was checking out the premiere date of Hugh Dancy's new show Hannibal on IMDb (starts on April 4, Thursdays 10/9c on NBC!), I noticed that Beautiful People has come on top of JM's filmography and it says Beautiful People (TV 2013) - TV Movie, 60 min, release date 1 May 2013 (USA) - OMEG?!?! Does anybody know anything about it?! I don't really know where to look to see what's the source or if it's true. I'm sure someone in [livejournal.com profile] jamesmurrayfans will find out something for us soon.

(I assume it'd be like Virtuality (TV 2009), if IMDb is saying true? It's another sci-fi stuff starred Nik as a protagonist, originally planned as TV series but didn't make it and they made the already filmed parts into 90min TV movie.)

(But... only 60 minutes? :((()

Also I finally signed up for doing art for [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang - against my better judgement, because last year I nearly blew it. I really need to do a better job this year. I've read the snippet of [livejournal.com profile] elyss_blair's Blood Ties story on [livejournal.com profile] smallfandomcafe and it's already SO good I can't wait to read the whole story, even though I've never known the series until she told me. I'm kind of sad it's already claimed, but I knew it's too good to be still up for a grab. Also [livejournal.com profile] crazyfoolstiney's so very promising The A-Team Circus AU is taken too, but it's [livejournal.com profile] delorita who's doing the art for it so I know both the fic and art are going to ROCK.

BUT! The story I claimed - which I'm still like on 3 of all 72 pages (O_O), also which is of the fandom I hardly know anything about - already reads *fantastically*!!! I don't know how many days I'm going to need to read the entire thing but I'm so excited to make art for it.

And here goes my self-indulgent pic/gif damp post, because I just felt like it and all the pretties in one post is good for my soul. Huzzah! It's, as always, NCIS: LA related stuff so all of you non-LA people needn't to click the cut to see what's inside, lol. One of those days I'll do the pic post for my sadly neglected fandoms...

One of my fannish dreams has come true for real.

OMG this year's PCA! I haven't watched any bits of the show yet, but this. THIS. Two of my favourite men if not in same production, but in one frame. Honestly? I DIED.

The men who killed me just by smiling at the camera )

Also, pimp! [livejournal.com profile] oxoniensis' Porn Battle is back (on LJ / on DW) and still open for prompts! Go leave the prompts, pick up the prompts, write porn and make it hot! ;D

Moodtheme: Chris O'Donnell

(Sorry I'm spammy since yesterday! I'm in the middle of three days off - not because it's near Christmas, just the national holiday. But we will have a small Christmas party (just for seasonal fun) tonight, so I better do this now.)

I made this sometime - no, *forever* ago (it's already been half a year since then! o.O), and at the time I had no time to do proper post. So it's quite old, also it's not like anyone but me wants or uses it (I'm the one who always needs moodthemes for their obsessions), but I'm still going to post it, hoping there's someone enjoys seeing these tiny pixels. :)

Pointless Tiny Graphic Post Before Christmas: NCIS: LA with a pinch of other things

(This is a pretty rushed post as I wanted to finish it before Christmas (I know I know, so not the best time to post, nobody's gonna see it but anyway). Apologies in advance for even more mistakes than usual.)

- Shameless self pimping: a while ago the ever so awesome faviconwillwork4dean wrote this fabulous kitten!G story, and I made a lame banner inspired by it and like the kind person she is she generously posted it with the story. You can find the story and banner here on AO3, or here on ncisla_slash, there's also an art post on AO3. (Related kitten!G posts by me here and here.)
- She also wrote this post 4.06 one shot (OMG ;_;), and once again I made blah banners for it because seriously, her work is always simply inspirational I just can't resist! They are also posted with the story because she's awesome like that. Check the fic out here on AO3, or here on ncisla_slash. (But seriously, do me a favor, skip the art and go read the stories they're AMAZING. \o/)
- ETA: Just posted Chris O'Donnell moodtheme I made forever ago, check it out if you're interested? ;)

The Return of Not-really!NCIS: LA Miscellany Post (which is 80% about cats)

UGH it's already mid-December how is it even possible?! I'm once again awfully behind of everything; but not because I'm :(, it's just the busiest month of the entire year for everyone, right? We don't even really celebrate anything (I love all kinds of celebrations though) and still it's crazily busy!

But seriously, it's amazing what a single fanwork can do to change one's state of mind. The fabulous [livejournal.com profile] willwork4dean did her magic once again and wrote this amazing piece of fic and it's awful and painful and just WONDERFUL and after spending the entire day (and a few following days) GROSS SOBBING I've been FULLY back on MAKE/POST EVERYTHING! mode and to my 'I will go down with this ship!' self again. Honestly, after 4.06 I felt so lost and had no idea how to go back to my happy shipping/watching, then the fic happened and it was like it remedied me all over (even in RL). OMGYES she's awesome. \o/

The only problem on fannish side is that there's so many fun festive things going on, so many things I want to do/make, and my attention is everywhere and my concentration is nowhere and everything I make is always crap turns out crap. (Really, why do all the fun things have to happen in December? How can everyone even manage??) Also I just realized I'll hit my one year NCIS: LA anniversary soon! I don't have an exact date like I have for Primeval or the A-Team but it's around 20-ish, at least I know that for a reason. I don't have any plans or ideas for it though, so I'll just try to empty my draft folder and post more often for the rest of the month. :D

(no subject)

OMG guys, look what I've just finished making after forever* - COD MOODTHEME! Yep, it's another one of those nobody-but-me-uses things, LOL. But this is what I've been wanting to have in my life for quite a while, and now I can finally use it in its entirety and I'm happy I actually finished something (even though I've got so many *other* things I'd better finish than this) and before his birthday (June 26th - I don't know, to me it somehow seemed important to finish it before the day), so, YAY ME. \o/


\o/ HELL YEAH CHRIS O'DONNELL & LL COOL J & NCIS: LA \o/

Random post is random

\o/\o/\o/ chris-odonnell.com is back online! OMGYAYAYAYAAAAAY!!! I was almost about to give up hope! I'm kind of embarrassed I made such a scene everywhere (particularly on LJ) but I'm just glad and happy and SO RELIEVED it's running again. \o/\o/\o/ (But I'm still searching Sacoor Brothers collection, I still need your help, the great power of internet! ;_;) I'm so going to finish my COD moodtheme this time! ... after I finished the auction graphics. And the goddamn test. And the 150 hours of online video lectures I have to watch/take IN A MONTH*. WTF!

'To-do's/events, June 1-15 edition. It's lovely how far longer my fannish list is than RL. Obviously, I have no life.

Help needed! ;_; Chris O'Donnell/LL Cool J/NCIS: LA pictures

In a mere hope of someone out there seeing this and kindly helping me out...

Long story long, my computer died in March and along with it went all the COD/LL Cool J/NCIS: LA pictures that I had fervently saved. Being fairly a new fan back then (and still is) I hadn't copied them to my external hard drive and everything is lost.

I've finally got a new computer (it's MAY for god's sake), and I want to go back to work on COD moodtheme I was making, so I thought it's time to rebuild my collection. Went to chris-odonnell.com, my main COD resource, only to find out it's now defunct! D: Don't know if it's temporary or not. It's great chrisodonnell.org seems to be up and running again but it barely has anything at the moment, sadly. COD France is an amazing site, but I'd really prefer to have images without watermark if possible... I don't really use Tumblr/Twitter/Facebook and I'm fatally clueless about them. Is any LL Cool J fansite out there?

So I was wondering - if you could share your picture collection/your favourites to help me start my new one, or point me to the right direction, that would be heavenly. Please comment here or PM me or send email to wallflower18 at gmail dot com, ANY and EVERY help is greatly appreciated! I know it's a lot to ask, but I'm getting really anxious and desperate.

(Particularly DESPERATE for Sacoor Brothers collection Chris did - he just looks so gorgeous in that shoot and I LOVE it. I used to have all the pictures from Chris catalog, simply saved them from Sacoor.com (Chris only, Chris with the girl, girl only, kids only, the backstage video they had put on the top page, everything). They run a new collection now and Chris pics/vid are all gone. ;_; Has anyone saved them? Or is there any way to retrieve those from cache or something?)

Also, any recommendations for NCIS: LA related galleries or resources? I never seem to be able to find anything on the internet. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help out the newbie - thank you!
