Something to remember, I think.

"Be patient and tough, some day this pain will be useful to you." -Ovid

Also, I have to rec this amazing fucking story. It's a "Doctor Who" AU where Rose gets turned into a vampire. Suspend your opinions until you read this. As Rosa said herself, "a story where Rose Tyler gets turned into a vampire should be funny. This one isn't." Please, please go read Epitaph by [livejournal.com profile] rosa_acicularis. You won't regret it.

How weird is it that as soon as I sign up for the two week free Paid LJ trial I suddenly have very little to say? Good job me, all that extra icon space going to waste! That really is the only reason I see to have a Paid account - all the extra icon space. I don't really use any of the other features.

The past week has been a tangle of house hunting and various social activities. There was a friend's 25th birthday last Friday where we all went out to Thai Cottage and had lovely Thai food. It was awesome because there was about 20 of us there and the night was going exceedingly well until I had an afterdinner mint and broke off a good 40% of one of my teeth. Luckily (?) it was a tooth I've had a HUGE root canal done on, so I wasn't in pain but the break was so sharp that I couldn't talk or swallow without pain because the broken edges kept rubbing my tongue raw ;____; Which resulted in little sleep that night and stumbling to Boots at 8am on Saturday morning to buy a temporary filling kit. Which, o be fair, did the trick until I got to the dentist on Monday morning.

Saturday was house-hunting then catching up on Friday night sleep and then Eurovision at Sci-Fi House. Absolutely hilarious, even if Azerbijan were blatantly not the best entry. Boooooooooo. Then we watched "Zombie Women of Satan" and "Black Sheep" - both awful and hilarious! Lots of boobs and blood and zombie sheep. Excellent night!

[edit] OH GOD HOW COULD I FORGET ABOUT NEIL GAIMAN'S "DOCTOR WHO" EPISODE?! My heart! The TARDIS and the Doctor! All the tension! It was amazing and some was quite creepy and it made my heart clench a lot. Then Confidential had Neil talking about it and narrating some of the script and my heart! The noises I made that only whales could hear! ♥

Rest of the weekend passed uneventfully and the week has been strange too. Especially as we're having Mother's Meeting tonight because Em couldn't make it last night. So I'm all a muddle! We were supposed to view another house tonight but they cancelled because the decorators have started painting and all that jazz so it wasn't suitable for visits. Boooooooo.

At least there will be tasty curry noms tonight! And excellent company too, of course.

The lovely [livejournal.com profile] rogue_dreams made me a little crotchet-bobble Bat Luck Cat and it is adorable! Also, considering my luck the last few weeks/months it fits perfectly! In the last week I have managed to: break a tooth, swallow temporary filling, strained my eyes, lose my housekeys WHILST I AM IN THE HOUSE, banged into a box that HAS NOT MOVED in 4 months and broke a drawer. Something about May clearly doesn't like me! /o\

The past few weeks have been filled with fucktons of "Inception" and "The Social Network" fanficcs. It's strange, but in all the years I've been in fandoms, these are two that have really, really grabbed me! Probably because the quality of writing in them is so phenomenally high, it's astounding. I also have been saving .gifs like they are going out of fashion. So many excellent .gifs! Hilarious and heart-breaking! My favourite kinds of .gif. Share some of my joy!

Zombie apocalypse. Set in some amalgamation between Leeds, Manchester and a biggish American city. Evening.

I was with the guys from "Shaun of the Dead", but who were actually the characters rather than the actors. We were running through the streets and places were empty. Liz and I were near the back of the ones running. As we ran past through streets, slowly more zombies appeared and we ended up running past this mini-supermarket with full open windows. Diane was there, working the till, with hordes of people (still people? I don't remember) in queues. I stopped and knocked the window so she would see me. Shaun (or maybe David) whisper-shouted that it was going to catch their attention but I couldn't stop. I knocked again (4 times) and I felt the change in the zombies pacing up the roads. They were noticing me. But then, so did Diane. And I knew looking at her that she was probably going to die there. We looked at each other. The men continued to run. Liz had slowed down up at the corner for me. She held her hand up to the glass and so did I and she gave me a small smile. Enough to say "I know" and "It's okay" and "Maybe in the next life". I think I was crying as Liz dragged me away as the zombies got closer.

We ran up, but started catching up to the boys. Liz and I ran into a corner alcohol shop (for cover? something to keep us going) and it was empty. She grabbed some squash plus a can of Red Bull and Rum mixed together. We downed it and then I went a little further into the shop to grab a bottle of Coke and a second bottle that was practically all drunk. The owner burst through a door behind one of the beer fridges just as Liz was running out. I had a moment of flailing as he shouted at me for being a thief and then I tore out. Ahead, I could see Liz running up the hill we were on and then turning down a road on the right, that lead to the highway. And I was suddenly so aware of the masses of zombies that were everywhere, behind corners and down streets I hadn't considered, as I ran, finishing the flat coke. I took the first road to my right, the one before Liz's turning and ran up a steep up-ramp onto the highway. I kept moving up and caught a glance of her hair as she disappeared up a side turn, so I followed. I never made it to the main highway. There were too many cars littered there and too much chance of people lying against their cars, turning.

I followed Liz's path and found her, the guys and two older people all in a dip in the highway. As if there had just been a massive slab of concrete that had never been placed there. Shaun told me to pay attention to what was under the grass in this ditch. It looked like a rusted Terminator skeleton, it's metalwork frame peeking above the grass. Two more guys appeared over the outcrop, I went to swing my bottle of coke at them, only to be informed they were human. They were carrying carrots and potatoes and maybe beets? We sat and had a dinner of vegetables, although apparently we also had rabbit that no one had cooked. I lectured Ed, who wanted to carry it with us for eating later. I said it would rot and also smell enough to attract Them. Someone only had a gun with one bullet in it. (the older couple were Shaun's mum-not-his-mum-in-his-verse. Maybe she was Prime Minister Harriet Jones? The man was a prominant English actor who's name I cannot remember)

Night passed there, I think. We moved on, separating from our new companions. We walked along our road, out of the city. We had no clue where we were heading. (people were changing at this point - Matt Smith, the new Doctor Who was now with us as where some others). We ended up in this youth hostel, off a side road, coming into the forest. But inside wasn't like a youth hostel. It was like a facility. Things get hazy but we all get separated and then the zombies attack. I remember running through darkened corridors, wanting to cry out for my friends, but knowing the stupidity of it. I think I had a bat. I clearly remember zombies appearing out of nowhere, chasing me. I turned left up a corridor, running and running and breathing and ran through doors until getting to a glass patio section which also had an extended back porch. I ran through the doors, flinging the doors closed in the glass area and was closing the back door (that was pressure locked or something) to see Matt, whom I had caught a glimpse of as I ran past. I stood, stunned against the glass door, pressed against it. Matt saw me, smiled and waved with his right hand. He had the gun in his hand, fitted it against his chin and fired. His body slumped stupidly to the ground. Maybe I screamed or just gasped and started sobbing. There were people outside in the actual patio, one of who pulled me away. A few zombies paced inside, near Matt's body. One of the men to my left had a blue, infected looking arm. So did a few other people. The man who pulled me away told me he had done what he did for the best, some other bullshit until he remarked that Matt did it because he'd been bitten.

Something else happened. Some bartering system for my friends maybe? They asked for hands. The man with the blue hand pulled his off and threw it inside. I'm not sure what happened next, but I was leaving with Liz. We got separated from the others. We left the hostel.

My phone rang, as we were along the roads, heading back into Leeds/pool/state. I answered, because my phone said Blash. Liz hit me, told me i was stupid and going to get eaten, they were going to hear us. Ash was asking where I was, who I was with, he told me he was with Mof and that she said hi and they were heading somewhere. Hazy from here.

There was more stalking through the streets. Maybe we were meeting the boys somewhere. Maybe we were meeting Ash. Maybe there was just the two of us left. We left Leeds again, once again hitting one of the highways out.

The highway lead us to an estate first, one like where Charlie lives. There were about 50 people there, including Sheaf. I ran to them, flinging myself at them and hugging them. They all wore cream coloured clothing, as did everyone around us. I didn't care. I was just so glad to see them alive. I think Marcus was pushed to speak to everyone, to gather a plan. We 'ssshhhed' everyone and then Marcus spoke, too loud on the dangerous streets, and I 'ssshhed' him too. We all giggled but he spoke. What he spoke about was gone. Maybe the turmoils we'd suffered to be alive at this point. People we had lost. People we had to lose. Where we went from here. How important it was to just keep moving. Processing could be done at the end.

Another house. A house that turned out to be a mansion on the hill leading out of Leeds with two people, in African clothing, standing guard at the gate. We came out of the house with two men (who were Arthur and Merlin. I know.) A boy-man stood at the bottom of the stairs. I went to twat him with my bat. Arthur stopped me and flung his arms around him. His cousin. They were dressed in shining silver armour. We left the palace, and the guards. They stood stoic, told us they were fend off any zombies that came our way to buy us time. We moved on.

Maybe we headed back to Leeds. Maybe we saw all the abandoned cars and realised that was the best thing we could do, the best way to travel.

Liz (who was maybe no longer Liz) and I were in a car, back in Leeds. The car pointing out of the city. My phone rings again. I don't remember this call. We drive, and find a fuckton of people driving out of Leeds on some clear road. Ahead of our car is my friend Lucy, sitting in the back of a pickup truck that has an upright piano tied into it. She begins to play, it is "Bridge Over Troubled Water". People all seem to have open-top cars. We lean out, breath in and sing.

That last 15 minutes broke my fucking heart.

Okay so what do you do when you have a shitty night where you watch something die before you and feel the surge of bewildering helplessness? You also have 3-4 days on your own (including going to London alone) but not alone because family with you but they're blood and not the choice. Do you sit down and try and cheer yourself up with happy movies and GOOD TIMES?

Not if your name is KATHRYN. Instead you download The Stolen Earth and Journey's End (because you caught the first 20 minutes of 'Journey' in work on Saturday night and flailed pathetically about having to work and MISSING DR. WHO OH MY GOD KEV) and burn them to disc (with Magic Knights Rayearth) and then sit yourself down and watch them.

I watched both about an hour ago and am not going to say anything spoilery except DEI HURRY THE FUCK UP AND START MAINLINING THESE EPISODES OH MY GOD.

Oh God, my heart. It was awesome and heart-breaking and some bits made me angry and some bits could have been better and some bits were so fantastic and so right and I cried the last ten minutes. Like the massive sop I am. I loved the way previous threads came back into it (even if they were in ways that tore at my heart) and the Children of Time

And it makes me want to buy all the DVDs and mainline them with someone but I don't have any geeky Dr. Who/Torchwood mates nearby and fangirl about the series with but i know NO ONE HERE who is into it and I have no one to flail with. :(


!!!! Dr. Who

Because my beloved [livejournal.com profile] sacchifox asked me! Questions~~!

1) If you could become anyone, real or fictional, for just one day, who would you be?

I honestly do not know! In the past while I've never really wanted to be anyone else, I've been vaguely happy with who I am. I've had moments where I've wished I've looked like someone else or I was more attractive or clever or productive or not such a fuck-up to make someone else happy - or to make myself happier!

But, in honour of this question, I would...I guess I'd love to be Rose for a day whilst she travelled with the Doctor as she was always learning and the world was always new to her afterwards.

2) Describe your favorite moment from Dr. Who.

....I don't know! I could give you hundreds. this is where I start to go downhill )

Right, I have rambled far, FAR too long now and made no sense and I'm going to stop Who!rambling now. Sorry Sacchi!
3) What's your favorite drink?

Um...I like fruit juice a lot - pineapple, apple, orange etc and I've been drinking water an awful lot to get healthy and stuff! I still love Vanilla Coke in my heart, except for the fact that it is not made anymore which makes me cry!

Probably tea though. Tea is my one true love that has never left me! Despite the bad circulation I get from it, ha ha ha ha!

Alcoholically, I like sweet drinks. I drink Malibu rum with coke or cocktails.

4) What would you name your oldest daughter?

I don't know. I actually have always insisted that I would never have kids because they would be a mess. No, honestly! I walk into walks, for God's sake, what would my kids be like?!?! However, there just seem to be far too many signs that I will be a mum. So I will see what happens!

I'm not sure what I'd name the kids though. I joke about naming them something awful like Cuthbert or Sara-Louise to annoy them or to name them after the wrong month. Like a June baby being called December but I'm not sure! But if she was the eldest girl, like me, I'd want her to have a good strong name, something she's be happy with and something that people could twist into nicknames.

....That's hard. Name my kids for me!

5) What's the first thing that comes to mind upon hearing the word "epiphany?"

A bunch of images, like viewing them through a kalediscope. Sitting in Mass years ago and watching the spring light stream through the stained glass windows and the quiet and the belief, the tingly, the heart-catching sensation that maybe my soul was new and I could start again. And moments being blinded, like the sun hitting your eyes and being dazzled, and being devestated and losing everything, self, knowledge, name, all of it, and integrating it all back into yourself. And quiet moments where you lean against the metal Production Bin in work, arms behind your back, looking at the floor but not really seeing it and just gasping softly, slightly as something you never considered just hits you.

Ten people I would sleep with, real or fictional! And then tag five people.

1. Rose Tyler. (Dr. Who) I think she's hot, alright?
2. Sheik (Legend of Zelda). Red eyes, blonde, mysterious. I likes!
3. Salamanca. (Final Waltz) Because I'm her voice and I like the Narcissus-complexity of it. XP Plus, she's experienced.
4. Remus Lupin. (Harry Potter) I have always loved Remus.
5. Cho Hakkai (Saiyuki) Scarred and wiry and injury to the eye! Except for the fact he would probably KILL ME IN THE FACE after. Trufax
6. Noct (Derelict Heaven, Waltz, the universe). Because he's an absolute cutey and adorable and yes, slight crush there!
7. Dean Winchester. (Supernatural)....There is nothing to explain there.
8. Duo Maxwell (Gundam Wing) First fandom!Crush!
9. Rukia Kuchiki(Bleach) Strong willed, snarky, hot. Excellent.
10. ULTIMATE TIE The Doctor. (Dr. Who)

[livejournal.com profile] whitehaiku do you mind if I make icons out of Waltz art? >D

I can talk again! It is awesome.

I have so many fandoms to catch up - I finished "Tokyo Babylon" which makes me *want* to read X, I have to review most of Joey's stuff, I have not even touched HP 7 - i know i know, plus I'm about 10 episodes away from the end of Supernatural season 2 and about 5 away from the end of Dr. Who season 2 as well (except I dun wanna finish because....Roooooossssseeee and I know I will sob for at least an hour.

So yes.

However, I am possibly close to sorting out my flights for travelling! Exciting, desu ne?

And I've just rehauled icon keywords as well as added a bunch - ask me about them or the fandoms! I think I have most of my fandoms represented in my icons now. Excellent!
klena: (trust in me)
I am so in love with this song - it's so beautiful!

[livejournal.com profile] whitehaiku I know I promised art. I promised smut and I have failed you! BUT ONLY BECAUSE I STARTED READING "SKEPTICS AND INNOCENTS" LAST NIGHT AND AM NOW 40 PAGES FROM THE END. And went to bed at 4. Damn it Joey! >D

I should get dressed. Because I need to get the bus to Newcastle to get my hair. Oh yes I do. Although get what done I have no clue. >D

Why oh why do boys need to be wankers to someone, especially when said person is all full of mucus and doesn't have the strength to fight?


If you be my star
I’ll be your sky
you can hide underneath me and come out at night
when I turn jet black and you show off your light
I live to let you shine
I live to let you shine

but you can skyrocket away from me
and never come back if you find another galaxy
far from here with more room to fly
just leave me your stardust to remember you by

if you be my boat
I’ll be your sea
a depth of pure blue just to probe curiosity
ebbing and flowing and pushed by a breeze
I live to make you free
I live to make you free

but you can set sail to the west if you want to
and past the horizon till I can’t even see you
far from here where the beaches are wide
just leave me your wake to remember you by

if you be my star
I’ll be your sky
you can hide underneath me and come out at night
when I turn jet black and you show off your light
I live to let you shine
I live to let you shine

but you can skyrocket away from me
and never come back if you find another galaxy
far from here with more room to fly
just leave me your stardust to remember you by
stardust to remember you by
