Summer course is done. I just about died.

The Guy has become obsessed with the program Man vs. Food so he is trying to drag me to try all those places mentioned on the show. -_- Went to Brick Lane Curry House today for their supposedly extremely hot curries. Ordered the lamb vindaloo, which is 2nd hottest from the menu (and the waiter gave me the "uh just so you know" speech). But alas, being a Chongqing girl, I was practically baptized in spice, so I was quite unimpressed as far as the hot factor went. Well, at least the mango lassi was good.

In other news, I'm having lunch this Saturday with [livejournal.com profile] buoy and [livejournal.com profile] no_detective. Hopefully I'll remember to bring my Star Trek magazines because they have the yummy movie costume sketches. St. Patrick's Cathedral is also on the menu (I actually hopped in today with the Guy in toll in the middle of a mass...the last time I went was with [livejournal.com profile] iris242x and a certain individual who did something which shall remain unstated XD).

And I must rec THIS K+S FANART by [livejournal.com profile] juneinblue which I call "Kirk and Spock go to Seaworld". IT IS SO MUCH AWESOME, JUST LIKE THE VULCAN NERVE PINCH!

....Ever since discovering Star Trek, I have developed a tendency to TYPE LIKE THIS.
I think it's because ST is JUST THAT GOOD.
Srsly.

There is another piece fanart that I really liked recently. It's an Arthur/Merlin one called "Lilies for My King" by [livejournal.com profile] shiyasim. (It's actually hosted on DW. Hm. I have a DW account but think I'm just too lazy to change, at this point...unless LJ screws things up really, really bad.)

*

Oh and an update about Transfiguration.

WTB our beta back. Hope she is okay. :(

In brighter news: The writing is at 20k, the first R-rated scene is pretty much done, AND we finally figured out how are they doing it for the first time! (Poor Spock. Poor, poor Spock....)

Also finally getting into Kirk's side of the angst bonanza. It's kind of...easier to write than Spock's, at least for me. Sure they both repress it, but they do it in different ways. Spock's post-coital angst will be a bitch to write, I suspect. Maybe it's time to hit the libraries up again?

因为昨天车子在维护中,BF同学的姑妈以及表弟表妹来接他一起去看HP6。(本人因为Mr. Sirius Black的缘故,抵制HP至今……………) 到晚上一行人回来,除了表妹皆反应说是惨不忍睹,顺便还剧透了我说校长死了。(我真的不记得原作里面校长死了-_-|||||)

今天BF同学发现我放在沙发旁边的打印品不是暑假学校作业而是《Transfiguration》的初稿,爆料曰:“我表弟昨天在读这东西耶!!我还和他说是你的作业!!!!”(他们刚来的时候我在小睡,于是房子是BF同学收拾的。他以为那东西是作业,就留在外面没动。)

………………………………………………幸好我不写H?但是,但是里面那两只的互动太明显了啊!!!!!!!

捶地一万次。

说起来,《Transfiguration》大概还没写到三分之一就已经八千字了。Orzzzzz

作为一个平日坚决不写长篇的人(我一般的文撑死了也就一千多一点而已),我发现写了这么多的悲哀就是—担心读者会不会读得不耐烦。毕竟是架空文,很容易抓不准,而且H部分要很后面才有………………>_>||||

09年纽约游行照片放出,因为LJ排版原因就另外建立了个文件:
I processed most of the NYC 2009 Pride March pics:

And I rather liked the face paint I got at the fair.

10点和T姑娘在Grand Central碰头,去了BOOK-OFF外加早餐。在麦当劳里面讨论如何抄袭别人的H段子的人……就是我们。

11点钟到了大图书馆门前早早占了位置,看大街对面的人,和旁边的人聊天。

12点游行开始。很有爱……我没带相机所以照片在T姑娘那里,虽然绝大部分都是我拍的。两句话很有感触。一是“It's not a parade until we win!”,另外一句是印在衣服上的“I can't marry you...yet”。开场的时候MC放Gloria Gaynor的《I Will Survive》,有花车放MJ的《Billie Jean》……具体细节还是等放了照片在说。(一张照片抵得上千言万语嘛。)

2点是为了HIV/AIDS和暴力死难者的默哀之刻。

3点过我们已经站了四个小时,虽然有很好的位置,但还是闪了。去前雷曼兄弟大楼旁边的拉面店吃了午饭。(顺便说我今天和T姑娘估计被不少人以为是一对了……因为我穿红的她穿绿的,然后我们两个脑袋凑在一起看游行。有姑娘特地从老远跑过来给我们发亚裔蕾丝组织宣传单……ORZ 不过也有佛教团体跑到我面前来发单子而不给T姑娘,此人黑线说我看起来不像华裔吗?我说别人一眼就看出你丫出生在德克萨斯了……可怜T姑娘家里倒还真是信佛的。)

4点钟,出发去街市。同时发现一包游行纪念品以及打印出来的H同人文忘在了拉面店……

6点,被画了一脸彩妆+因为强戴耳环而鲜血淋漓的本人带着T小姐离开街市,出发去唐人街吃火锅。走在唐人街,被看作那美克星人。而且因为本人认路无能,走啊走啊走啊走……

快8点,干完火锅,二人在大班饼家坐着喝茶(它家的柠檬蜂蜜热茶居然很好喝!),某昆虫关于游行和一群善良群众聊天,然后热烈地讨论某个不见天日的坑。

8点半,二人坐在地铁上,仍然在讨论坑。分别的时候还作了瓦肯手势。(<----这两人真的没救)

10点,裹着白底黑花披风,一脸伪京剧彩妆,从车站走回家的路上……似乎吓到正太了。=O=

就酱。照片明天等T姑娘上来放。

-------------------我是全然无关的某线-------------------

我,我又跳坑了orz
我是说Arthur/Merlin这个坑。-_-
一代宗师居然被演得如此人妻,如果他地下有灵,恐怕死不瞑目吧。(冰炎:“一代宗师也有难过的情关!”)

Sometimes I think I'm a bad person. Other times, I know.

Uh, still doing archiving at http://delicious.com/st_kink_ks. Over 1000 prompts now. Probably 1000+ to go. Part 1 is kind of done. Part 2 is except for 3 pages. Part 5 is up to date (as up as humanly possible.) Got to page 24 on Part 4 tonight before mentally throwing up. At least I've been discover some gems while going over the prompts. I've been meaning to get that rec list going since...uh, forever. Sigh.

Went over the translation of Because the Simple Fact is, Love is Never Discreet, a la [livejournal.com profile] le_culdesac, with Momo. Took literally hours. Translation itself is kind of a pain, especially with cultural nuances and what not, but re-reading that story is just so sweet. It made me squee all over again.

Laptop's battery died so L. assigned his to mine. Rin told me I'm The Laptop Killer. Sadly, it's true. I also recced a few English K/S fics to Rin. She thoroughlly enjoyed them.

But. I've been writing too much lately. And not reading enough. I generally can't bear to read a lot other people's work when I'm actively writing myself. This has not been a problem previously because, well, honestly I haven't actively written for any fandom in years. But as of now, this is kind of a problem, and I need to just take things slow.

In general, though, I probably should just stop writing for other people and go back to writing for myself. Be honest about what I want, what I can do, that sort of thing.

It's been raining in the afternoons, so my book-with-a-salad picnics have not been happening. I even got my Sherlock Holmes collection out today in the honor of the incoming movie, but it rained so persistently. I do like the rain, though, because I appreciate cool summers.

Is new chapter of Bleach gonna be out tomorrow? I sure hope so.

平了一个很大的坑。(算么……)

最后几段话,感觉怎么写也不对。当然还是写完了,落上名字日期,打上The End。

记忆中这是我这些年来第二次用The End或者“全文完”这种说法来结尾。上一次是POY。我的英文作品一般都是以Finis而表达结束,因为那样感觉上和The End不大相同……虽然finis本身就是拉丁文的“the end”。(汗) 以我那些东西的长度和深度,不好意思真正说结得了尾。更贴切的说法应该是,“未完不续”。

这一个和POY,却是算得上有始有终,有绽放有凋谢。POY的末尾很大不敬地写了个Consummatum est,那是圣经John 19:30,人子在十字架上最后的话。It is completed/It is finished—中文的翻译“成了”虽然比较乡土,却把握了含义。

我也不喜欢说再见。
很不喜欢。
真要再见,那时候自然便重逢了,不是么。
今日种种,明夕何夕。
所以分别的时候,大概还是只能说take care,保重。

对于曾经亲密后来却反目的人,我也说,“我希望你在某个我不知道的地方快乐着。”
再见,就不用了吧。

人生在世,大概不闭眼睛,就算不得完结。

看了Mr.Brain第二集。
学校那边算是给了个回复……也还好吧,虽然要开始考虑翻译了。
如果事情没有变化,八月初打算和BF同学开车出去逛一个星期。

昨天深夜下大雨闪电,刚入睡的时候还在狠狠地打雷。我开着窗子裹在被子里面,很开心。
今天白天仍然下雨,不过现在停了。夏天的雨其实满可爱的。
窗外鸟叫得很凶。
很久没头疼了,今天又开始。讨厌……

As I have successfully filled all prompts given to me last time (after eons, but who's counting), I feel justified in opening a new round of prompts. (Woohoo?)

If anybody has a prompt for me, feel free to leave a comment! :D I prefer something more unusual/specific, but in the end if it strikes my fancy then hey, all's well that ends well. Please keep in mind that in my case a prompt does not work like the ones you leave for [livejournal.com profile] st_xi_kink—they are not scenarios and in most cases are just one or two words. I will try my best to write all of them but, as usual, can't make any promises. :P

Fandoms covered:
Star Trek XI: Kirk/Spock
Final Fantasy VII: Genesis, Angeal, Sephiroth
Final Fantasy VIII: Seifer/Squall
One Piece: pretty much anything goes up to and including the Skypiea saga. I'm bad at anything Sanji related though...
Naruto: Uh, proceed with extreme caution...

茕蝶:人生悲剧……BF同学看到我的文件了………………orzzzzz
茕蝶:我是不是该杀人灭口……
冰炎:咳咳,什么文件?ST的么?
茕蝶:我和某姑娘用英文挖坑……也就是挖而已了,但是真的是NC21级别的……
冰炎:咳,我一时间反应成脑残21
茕蝶:我和那姑娘一边high一边说子啊带我们走吧
茕蝶:然后BF同学用我电脑,就看到了
冰炎:噗噗噗,他shock了没
茕蝶:管他shock不呢,重点是我的BLX啊

茕蝶:不过在我的据理力争之下,BF同学已经接受了K/S这配对
冰炎:狂笑,他本来不接受么?
茕蝶:那是人家的纯洁童年啊
茕蝶:其实我混同人,他一般是抱着看好戏的态度
茕蝶:不过这次这两个,他抗议我在他面前叽里呱啦
冰炎:他童年的时候,这个不是已经slash祖宗了
茕蝶:他在认识我之前不知道有slash这事情得好不好
茕蝶:我摆事实讲道理,说你看人家编剧都自己认了接受了,你也就从了吧
冰炎:噗噗噗
茕蝶:他这个理科脑袋分析之下,居然就接受了
冰炎:他好去跟Rin家BF跨国界同人女背后的男人

仗着XQ那个帖子被翻上来+[livejournal.com profile] sphinxofthenile小姐的新短文Beholder的东风,Possession居然平了。
给这个星期的[livejournal.com profile] ffviii_100短文也写了。感觉还不错。
另外宇二先生[livejournal.com profile] 10_letters也写出来了第二封,虽然很雷但我好歹写出来了是不。

下面要填/写的:
给琥珀的四卡……是的我没有忘记,虽然我已经很可耻地拖了N年……(话说我真的没有忘记,去费城流言那里都抱着小电在打的,流言和Iris可以作证……她们原话貌似是“这个老四好渣啊”-_-)
给Rin和Aza的结婚贺文……还是卡卡西相关orz (喂我说你们真爱折腾他啊,不怕我真的写卡玲么)
《Sunkist》我就差个尾巴不填了我死不瞑目
给烟花的RP文……
[livejournal.com profile] tanoshi_ame的Seifer/Squall短文,也许两篇也许一篇

赐予我力量吧,我是希瑞~~~~~~~~~

被BF同学扯着去看了《Fiddler on the Roof》(《屋顶上的提琴手》?),因为他表弟和表妹在里面扮演了主要配角。当然不是百老汇版本(囧),是他们那个地区的犹太人社区自己搞的表演。说实话比我想象的要好,可以看出来用了心。不过这个不是重点。

故事背景在沙皇时代的乌克兰,一个在俄罗斯人统治下的犹太人小村庄。其间讨论政治革命种族爱情金钱阶级之类的我也不说了,因为我只是来HC的。

故事的一节,男主人公大叔和村子里的犹太男人在酒馆里面庆祝自家大女儿订婚了,唱歌跳舞的很喜庆。这边犹太人唱得快完了,那边俄罗斯人突然来了一个超~~~~长的高音给他们接了下去。众人震撼之下定睛一看,某个唇红齿白在开场时候出现但我以为只是花瓶的俊美正太,闪亮登场。

真的是震撼。那一开口音色纯正不说,拉得超长却没有一丝颤音。我好歹是合唱团出身,知道业余水平唱到这份上的确不容易。(后来一查,发现人家小时候是大都会歌剧院儿童合唱团的独唱……囧。)

但更让我倒塌的是,美声正太随之走到舞台正中……跳起了芭蕾舞来。而且在我这个外行人看来居然还跳得很像样!!而且穿的还是那种很像军装的骑马制服!!坐在观众第一排正中的我当时就被电得不知道东南西北了……

后来……后来此正太去泡男主人公的三女,也就是BF同学的表妹了……orz
至于BF同学的表弟,他扮演一个有着伟大理想的革命青年,泡到了男主人公的二女儿然后就进监狱了……

正太和BF同学的表弟是一个学校的,似乎是小一岁的学弟?专攻是戏剧……继续囧。

在日本的时候,地铁站里看到的大幅广告。
画面上是四个光鲜亮丽的微笑青年男女,一行大字写着:みんな、一生懸命、嘘をついて生きている。(“大家都要拼命说谎活下去。”)

When I was little, I despised people who wore masks and pretended to offer kindness.
But now I wonder, if they do it because they are actually afraid of the the ugliness within.
Who knows?
Not a good day in terms of soul searching.

Hello 2009

痛定思痛之后,我觉得,我的2008年之所以这么倒霉,完全是因为我2007此时没有写一篇Hello 2008。(……)

所以呢……
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

其它东西,其它日记上面写吧。

Hello 2009.
Show me what you've got. :)

今天鸢尾和流言会很有文化地去拜访大都会博物馆,而我会在家里睡觉……hiahiahia~

圣诞纽约游快尾声了。计划是三个人各自负责游记的一部分。因为一个人写起来太艰难:搞笑的事情太多了,RP的事情也太多了。= =||||

Iris负责写:我们在星巴克赖着不走八卦八八,以及帝国大厦上看夜景。
流言负责写:卡拉永远OK,以及圣诞夜晚餐是如何被弄得鸡飞狗跳的。
本人负责写:一边喝酒一边RP成语接龙……大教堂里面的orz事情,还有购物经历。

冰炎:你们这叫3p走米国么,从纽约到费城
茕蝶:我决定把游记名字叫做“排骨三人组的胜利”
茕蝶:Rumour = R, Iris = I, Butterfly = B
茕蝶:RIB...排骨
冰炎:你个排骨三人组
茕蝶:其实也是因为我带着她们俩到处下馆子orz
冰炎:吃遍纽约- -
茕蝶:也就是曼哈顿……不过这几天大家都没睡好觉
茕蝶:别人旅游,上午出门,晚上回去
茕蝶:我们是,下午才集合,半夜才回去
冰炎:这才是同人女的正常时间- -
冰炎:我现在约人都约午后,上午没可能爬起来
茕蝶:是啊,然后每次集合,三个人都是昏昏欲睡的样子
茕蝶:她们俩,旅馆旁边太闹
茕蝶:我,我太high,回来之后还写同人……

明天出发去费城~~~~~~~~~~~
fatima: (hehehe)
一句话总结2008圣诞夜:
我欲乘风归去,又恐琼楼玉宇,高处不胜寒。

和鸢尾小姐+流言小姐的圣诞纽约腐败游第二天。黑线地开始,欢乐地结束。
等她们的照片出来了我要照片去…………

各位同学圣诞快乐!^_^

Happy Holidays Everyone!

事情(部分)概括就是:一个人类圣骑士,在没有任何救援会到来的情况下,独自面对了一整个来屠城的部落团队,并且成功地守住了联盟的领袖。当然,不管结果如果,都不会改变这行动本身体现出来的的骑士精神。

“退无可退,因为我的背后就是国王。”

而他手中拿的剑,恰好就叫做“国王保卫者”。

同是玩WOW的,我的人物就算在游戏里面也不是英雄,只是具有给人加血强迫症和采花强迫症的治疗者而已。联盟的NPC我不在意,听到有人去宇宙船推德国人领袖了也会说“那空城给他们好了”。因为—赶路过去很麻烦。打架被别人宰也很麻烦。被宰之后跑尸体复活,更麻烦。

但是,如果有朋友为了保护什么而投入了争斗,我也绝不能放下他。NGA上曾经有一个帖子,讨论如果这游戏里面如果人物死去就不能复活,玩家会怎么做。对于我而言,答案是显而易见的:和同伴们一起去第一线对抗天灾,用我所有的能力拼命给他们加血,直到我自己倒下为止。

明知不可为而为之。虽千万人吾往矣。

虽然我知道在游戏里面不勇敢的人未必在面对现实的时候也是如此,但我还是希望……至少游戏里面,要有这种勇气。

至于在现实中,如果有一天面临了那样的选择,我希望自己能够选择正确的道路。

不管那是什么样的。

至于故事的另外一部分……不玩游戏的不用点,看不懂的 )

又,把故事的前面一半用英文解释了一下,发到LJ社区去了……

至于后面一半,那算了吧。=_=

Add

一觉醒来,发现自己在wow_ladies上的帖子被人转到………………自家服务器论坛上了。虽然,很没RP地给我改了帖子名字……

互联网就是个让人orz一千次的地方。

我自己也把故事动手发到了公会论坛上。几个回帖都说很感动,会长的LP大人更是私下密语我说她看得几乎哭了。(然后说到了NYC……辣椒……还有怎么才能开罐头||||||)。
fatima: (omg)
迷迷糊糊一觉醒来,BF同学已经人去屋空,回老家去看他爹娘了。

我心想好歹也是一周看不见,这人总该给我留张纸条啥的吧。爬起来,房子里马马虎虎转了一圈,不见条子—直到撞进自己的书房,发现他打印了一张条子出来,很端正地放在我的电脑键盘上。(此人的手写算是狗啃流……)

大大的黑字跳入眼帘:
不要把屋子弄得太乱。不要带东西进卧室。要记得吃水果和蔬菜。要少吃辣椒。

我差点没笑出声,随后去热冷藏室里的腊肠包子吃。英文里面有种点心叫做pigs in a blanket,中文翻译似乎是小热狗,不过直接翻译就是毯子裹猪。我昨天买了包子后对他说,这东西里面的腊肠就那么细细一根,又包了那么厚一层的面,简直就是pigs in a a mattress—床垫裹猪!)

包子啃到一半,猪已经牺牲了,床垫却还剩下半边。我想起昨晚宵夜是把这东西用红辣椒酱沾着吃的,于是兴冲冲折回书房去拿红辣椒酱。

赫然发现:没。有。了。(红辣椒酱一贯是放在我的台式电脑旁边的,因为无聊的时候可以吃……= =||||) 我愣了一下明白过来—敢情是他老人家放了条子之后,为了杜绝后患(见第四条)就给我顺手牵羊了???

郁闷到死。
fatima: (himitsu)
……其实没啥好说的。

顺便把八十八夜修了。IP还是被万里长城封着。慢慢搬家吧。(在Rin面前只有抱头逃窜的份……)

很奇怪呢。有的地方感觉很成年了,有的地方却仍然很小孩。

不过,已经不许愿了。^_^
