kaydeefalls: pippin with leaf pin in mouth, text "one by one my leaves fall, one by one my tales are told" (one by one)
So I just spent my entire day in bed watching all of LotR in one sitting, after having spent the past week or so since seeing The Hobbit gradually rewatching all of the special features.

I REGRET NOTHING.

Seriously, though, now I remember why I was so thoroughly obsessed with those films and that fandom for so long. I mean, not that I'd forgotten, but still. Hadn't done a full rewatch in years -- not since college, I think -- and I don't think I ever did it all in one sitting even then. UGH HOW ARE THEY SO PERFECT. Intense feelings for twelve hours straight, right there. And goddamnit, the Grey Havens still make me tear up automatically. All the hobbits get teary all at once, I get teary. Then Frodo fucking smiles at them from the boat, and bam, cue gross sobbing. OH MY BOYS. I STILL LOVE YOU SO.

The problem, of course, is that all my favorite LotR fics from way back in the day were hosted on individual websites, all of which seem to have vanished off the face of the internet. I am seriously jonesing for some old-school Dom/Elijah or Merry/Pippin, guys, why did we not have AO3 back then and where have all those old fics gone?

See, this is why I've uploaded everything to AO3, even the shit I would prefer people not associate with my name. Because even the embarrassing stuff might have been something someone else really enjoyed and would like to revisit, and that's cool. I vividly remember that a couple of my onetime favorites really weren't all that well-written, but I don't fucking care, I want to reread Buffett's Surfing series goddamnit and it's GONE. (Seriously. The Wayback Machine captured like one or two chapters of it, but that's it. I looked.)

I do know that both LotR FPS and RPS fandoms are still chugging quietly along, and I'll browse through any more recent good stuff I can find, but man, I really wanted to have a good reread of the fandom classics, and they are (for the most part) nowhere to be found. Damnit.

So today one of my roommates in a hostel in Riomaggiore is a New Zealand girl. Got to talking about LotR (like you do), she mentioned that her cousin had a small part in those movies.

Her: "He was, like, the elf king, or something. You know, Cate Blanchett was the queen, and he was her king."

Me: "...your cousin is Marton Csokas?"

Her: "Wow, I can't believe you know who he is, no one's heard of him."

Me: "..."

I managed to refrain from informing her that, in fact, I knew several people who rather enjoyed writing stories featuring her cousin and his friends having kinky gay sex.

I love this vacation.

My internet has been down for the past two days, so I was woefully behind in the flist, and then it starts working again and I come back to find...

Lotripping: Lotrips Zine 2004

ZINEZINEZINEZINEZINE!!!!1!!!one!!

So. Yes. You all should checkit, because there are a lot of crazy good authors in there, and because it is also probably the only place where you will see a fic written by me involving Viggo/Karl/Orlando, Liv/Miranda, Karl/Elijah, Billy/Elijah, Dom/Astin, Dom-and-Billy-wanking-to-Liv/Miranda, AND a foot massage (said foot massage added specifically for [livejournal.com profile] housemouse, who requested it a long time ago but I never delivered). There is also crazy drunken hobbitsnorli, but that has a tendency to show up in pretty much all of my fics, so nothing particularly special there.

Note that I WILL PROBABLY NEVER WRITE KARL OR LIV OR VIGGO OR MIRANDA (although she is very hot) AGAIN. THIS IS A ONE-TIME DEAL. ;)

< / shameless self-promotion >

Seriously, though, this is 200+ pages of most excellent Lotrips. What's not to love?
kaydeefalls: frodo's ship disappearing into the sunset (frodo lives)
So my Two Lines lyrics are kinda sappy and nostalgic, and they put me into a late-night sappy nostalgic mood, so blame them. Yeah.

Remember when the Lotrips fandom was still young and revolved around mailing lists and the Closer Than Brothers archive? Those were good days. Not that the fic was better than the fic is now, but it was all so DIFFERENT. It was all New Zealand fics, and maybe the FotR premiere, and no one knew what TTT and RotK were gonna be like so when we wrote about filming those scenes we used the dialogue out of the books, or just stuck to FotR, and there were new pics every fucking day of the boys doing very very gay things together, and there was much squeeing, and digging for spoilers, and Domlijah wasn't tinhatty yet, and Orlijah was the big thing because of that massive Orlijah hug at the FotR premiere.

I remember that Buffett's Surfing series got me hooked on RPS, and wax_jism's Bloomwood archive was THE place to find good Orlijah, and Calico's Sabotage was the hottest smutfest anyone could ever even imagine, and Demelza's liebesdachs series was the funniest and cutest Dom/Billy ever, and MsAllegro was just another RPS writer who maintained a pretty good pic website. I remember trying to emulate the writers who were always just a few fics ahead of me, the ones who became active in fandom just a few months before me, who weren't greats yet but were obviously going to be. I remember marvelling over writers like Mcee and Cimorene, and trying desperately to follow in the incredibly prolific and talented heels of Gabby Hope, and trying desperately to carve some sort of niche for myself in the Domlijah corner of the fandom.

So, for old time's sake, what were your favorite fics/writers of the fandom when you first joined it? Which stories do you still remember? Which authors do you still occasionally wonder, hey, they were awesome, what ever happened to them? Just...share. 'Cause a lot of us seem to be moving on, and I want to remember what brought us together in the first place.

[livejournal.com profile] fandom_scruples? Um, okay. Now I really want to write something juicy and NC-17 just to get on their blacklist.

Also, my roomie's computer keeps periodically making these really odd beep-boop noises, and it's vaguely disturbing. It might explode at any minute. *looks around nervously*

It's 3 PM and I'm eating cereal for breakfast. Go me!

The trouble with my slasha assignment is that I've written this pairing just enough that I can't easily come up with new plots for it. If I'd been given a weirdass pairing like some of you, at least I'd have the newness of it to push me along. Instead, I'm stuck. Bah. I need a push. Something. Anything. A word, a phrase, a setting, something. Anyone? Bueller?
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (i fart in your general direction)
My only complaint is that the genre is waaaaay too open-ended. But my pairing is just fine, thanks. *beams seraphically at everyone bemoaning their slasha assignment*

...or, at least, read the stupid stuff they write. From SFX Magazine:
Each of the nine members of the Fellowship (bar John Rhys-Davies, who sent his stunt double) had the white tree of Gondor tattooed upon their person.

Because, y'know, the elvish symbol for 9 looks exactly like the tree of Gondor.

Dumbasses.

oh, shit...

...I actually have to choose a fic and review it for the constructive crit project, don't I? Soon, right?

Shit.

Author still too good. Don't wanna criticize. Is bad. Grargh.

*starts looking through fics, again*

So, according to that ManU thingy, Dom has a girlfriend named Gigi.

Dude.

GIGI.

*falls off her chair, snickering like a ten-year-old boy*

I have to say, if he couldn't be shagging Elijah or Billy or Orlando, this pretty damn close to makes up for it.

Gigi. *snickers*

GEOFFREY!

One hour of "Hetty Wainthropp Investigates" down, one to go.

The Dom!love is like omg squee! right now. He looks so gleeful all the time! He tries to lift weights! He gets all excited about old friends! He snickers!

LotR just doesn't have enough happy!Dom...

Whilst everyone was busy having Geoffreygasms, I was bemoaning my local PBS station for being stupid and not airing Hetty. I screamed, I cried, I checked the monthly listings...

August 24. 9pm & 10pm. Two episodes of Hetty. Booyah! ::does happy dance of DOoM::

OH DEAR GOD

Okay, [livejournal.com profile] zarah5's constructive crit project? Is cool and awesome and all that, but... DID YOU REALLY HAVE TO ASSIGN ME THAT AUTHOR? ::dies:: I'm supposed to, like, critique her? Is that even possible?

My god. What's with the me and the fucking around with fics of the fandom greats? First I had to remix one of [livejournal.com profile] mcee's fics, and now I have to write constructive criticism for...!

::shrivels::

I am exactly 31 pages into Good Omens, and it's already shaping up to be the Best Book Ever. Not only that, but it's a Dom/Billy shipper:
It meant that Crowley had been allowed to develop Manchester, while Aziraphale had a free hand in the whole of Shropshire. Crowley took Glasgow, Aziraphale had Edinburgh...

See? Crowley created both Manchester and Glasgow. Obviously, Dom and Billy were Meant To Be.

Yeah.

heh.

Okay, I've been wondering about the lack of posting for a while, but does anyone know where [livejournal.com profile] untitled06 went? Dammit. I hate it when nice, talented people's LJs go boom.

Also, just attempted to argue reason speak(?) with...oh, never mind. I'm an idiot, sticking my nose into a flamewar like that. But I just couldn't resist!

I've had an awesome day otherwise, and how are you? ::beams::

How to have fun with Googlism.

Try the following keywords: "gay sex," "buggery," "slash." Heh heh heh. (Slash is coiled and ready to strike!)

Hmm. This AP Hell presentation doesn't require a bibliography or anything, does it? 'Cause if it does, I think she'll notice that our entire fact sheet is directly paraphrased from a variety of websites. And by "directly paraphrased," I mean "blatantly plagiarized." It's a bleepin' fact sheet, not a paper.

Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] shira? I'm about 3/4 done with your beta. You shall have it tomorrow night, really honestly truly. ::sighs:: I really need to learn how to get these things done as soon as I get them.

MTV Awards pics. Mmmm. Haven't been inspired by the Sean/Elijah in ages and ages. Am feeling the love again, am definitely feeling the love. Must iconize.

And Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] funkyreunion! Hope That whole thesis/dissertation thing is working out for you!

You know who's cool? The March Hare. From Alice in Wonderland. Is very cool. Heh. No, I won't explain, 'cause I'm lazy.

And, because [livejournal.com profile] shanalle said so... fandom survey )

In other news, have given myself a Summer Project. Because I spent much of last summer writing the Fic From Hell (TM), which in retrospect wasn't all that great, but remains the closest thing to an epic I've ever written. So, now that my writing skills are slightly less craptastic, I have determined to spend much of this summer writing...well, some kind of epic. Except not really. But. Yes. Summer Projects. I highly recommend them. Just, 'cause, y'know, why not? ::nods firmly::

March Hare. Heh.

As [livejournal.com profile] undone27 posted earlier, a [fairly] new Elijah interview can be found here. It's in French, and I don't know if anyone's translate it yet. Fortunately, my 11+ years of studying French have not failed me. He doesn't say anything we haven't heard before, although there are a couple of interesting tidbits re: Viggo and the war.

But, heh: "Quand je suis venu à Paris pour la promotion des 'Deux Tours,' j'avais envie de me marier avec toutes les filles que je voyais!"
("When I came to Paris for the promotion of 'Two Towers,' I wanted to marry all the girls I saw!")

Ahahahah yes dear. ;)
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (dude. pay attention.)
Because. I can be.

[livejournal.com profile] lush_rimbaud and I continue to not write our S'mores Collaboration Fic of Doom. We almost started it on Friday, but got sidetracked in the film section of Barnes & Noble and spent two hours looking for pictures of Elijah Wood or blurbs relating to LotR in various film books. But the fic will be written someday. Really. Possibly before graduation, even. Because, dude, we were meant to write a collaboration fic. She writes smut really well and I'm a dialogue whore. So, like, as we decided a while ago, Dom will say something humorous and Lij will orgasm. Sounds great, right?

Incidentally, "awake" is a relative term. Especially at 4:21 AM.
