So.

I am in love with Dean Winchester. Sexy bastard, him. I kinda want a new layout of him to the song "Destroy Everything You Touch". I miss having blue-grey-black color scheme...

Numb3rs... I liked it. But that might be only because whenever Amita walked on screen, I unpaused Daily Show Indecision 2004 on my lappy and waited until she left.

Tomorrow is a mall day. Grr. I am gonna be snippy and inpossible to deal with. Lucy does not like the shopping, yo.

And I have been lazy about meme fic because my muse for my full-length fics is awake and... I'm trying to focus on the meme responses, but god, I've got nothin'. *cries* Oh, decisions!

I need sleep now. Goodnight and good luck, fen.

Vidder Notes: The most work I put into any fannish project before. Very upbeat, quick vid, with something about 400 cuts and transitions...? Colossal thanks goes to Chi, my wonderful beta who watched about five versions of this vid, praised it, then pointed out my screw ups. And, yes Chi, I got all the loose frames out except that one in the beginning that isn't but looks like a frame and the one in the second chorus. Sorry! I tried. Outside that flaw, I'm fairly convinced that the vid has no technical problems whatsoever. *win* And huge kudos to Jonathan Coulton's "Mandelbrot Set", the only song that made me like math and, quite frankly, rock out to it. It is made of awesome.


Also, someone told me after watching the vid that you really need the lyrics to get it. So, just to appease her, here are the song lyrics: )

I DID IT! *dances* And to you, the person who told me this would be impossible to vid: HA HA!

The Mandelbrot Set vid is done. I have worked for the last four days on it straight through. My chat fen will be very aware of this.

The vid? Looks amazing. I mean, seriously brill.

And, by god, with all the work I put into the bitch, it'd better be made of awesome.

It's 4:19, uses 30 episodes, is full of timing gags, humor, and a bit of character reflection, and is the most work I've ever put into a fannish project. And the most I've ever bitched at my beta, Chi, who made the vid better by telling me what I shouldn't do and what I should and irritating me by pointing out loose frames.

So, it's done. Actually, I'm going back to fix two stubborn loose frames, THEN it shall be formatted to high-quality (if I can figure it out), and posted.

Three days after the challenge deadline.

*headdesk*

Deliriously happy,
-Luce

PS: I swore I'd never do another fast-paced vid again about halfway through this project. HA. I am drafting the C/L "Hateful" vid and will jump into it while the N3 canon is still fresh in my mind. I lose at life but win at fandom.

Oh crap, crap, CRAP!

Working on Numb3rs fanvid that is due on Monday and I need the tag scene of 'Prime Suspect' for it. The one were Charlie and Alan are discussing Charlie buying the house. I need that entire scene and the DL comm doesn't have it uploaded and...

*screams and tears at her hair*

Can somebody help? Either a quick upload of the ep or of that scene.

*silent panicking*


-Luce

ETA: Help recieved, back to panicking over the vid now (which, minus the 10 second bit I'm missing from 'Prime Suspect', is now at around two minutes. YAY!).

REC TIME!

All Numb3rs fans must go read this fic now:

The Colors of Jovian Gravity

*falls over in awe* Wow. Just... how can a fic so short punch you in the chest THAT many times?!

Numb3rs fandom, there is hope for you yet.

I am torn.

I'm doing a Numb3rs vid for a challenge. I have two BIG ideas that could work.

The first, I outlined to "Hateful".

The other... Well, let's just say I finally sat down and listened to Jonathan Coulton's "Mandlebrot Set". And I am fairly certain I can do a Mathy!Charlie vid to it.

((Grab the song here: Mandlebrot Set.))

[Poll #763528]

*rocks out to MATH MUSIC, omg*

Jonathan Coulton wins everything. Seriously. I have "Better", "Code Monkey", "Ikea", "Mandlebrot Set", "Skullcrusher Mountain", "DNA", "I Feel Fantastic", and "A Laptop Like You". All are brilliant. Once I get another paycheck, I am SO donating to this cat. Geek songs, but with actual beats and awesomeness to them. WIN!

So, even though I have a bunch of Other fannish things, I am again drawn to Numb3rs. Particularly, Larry and Charlie. And I can blame it on [livejournal.com profile] miriam_heddy.

See, I was cruising her fics and listening to music (la lala la la) when "Hateful" by The Clash comes on. (snag it here) My Vid Bunny bites me on the ass.

Oh, anything I want, he gives it to me
Anythign I want, he gives it, but not for free
It's hateful and it's paid for
And I'm so grateful to be nowhere


'Cause that is the slightly abusive relationship they have. In my head, anyway. The idea that anything Charlie gives isn't free appeals to me and my screwed-up view of the boys. Poor Larry.

So, I seriously need to finish my SGA vid so I can do this Numb3rs vid. Yes.

New Meme:

List your fandoms (all the ones you really love). Under each one, name your three favorite moments from the said fandom.
No cop outs. Three canonical moments. Not "any scene where blahblah happened".
Only three. Yes, this is meant to be a pain in the ass.

I wrote this after 'Backscatter', sent it for a beta, and got no reply. *shrugs* Meh. I'll post it anyway.

Author's Note: Takes place directly after the episode, "Backscatter". No beta, all mistakes and typos are my own.

First thing's first: I made a banner for the forum I'm joining. It's about the huge ARG that LOST is running- the Hanzo Conspiracies.



How proud am I? Extremely. I has all the little goodies from the secret areas of The Hanzo Foundation. It has the "subverting authority" and "who is this clown" messages, the map of Hanzo's last known locations, the HF logo, the creepy lady (Persephone?), the blastdoor map, and the big passwords used to access everything. I'm very proud. *happy dance*

Now. Onto Numb3rs. )

Title: Horizon
Fandom: Numb3rs
Characters: Charles Eppes and Lawrence Fleinhardt
Prompt: 2. "I write the lines you want me to; with the words I dare to use."
Word Count: 1040
Rating: PG
Summary: Charlie, Larry, a vacation, and a balcony with an ocean view.
Author Notes: Done entirely without dialogue. Thanks to Miriam, for being patient with all my obvious screw-ups.

Title: Dust to Dust
Fandom: Numb3rs
Characters: Charles Eppes and Lawrence Fleinhardt
Prompt: 3. "a place between sleep and awake; end of innocence, unending masquerade"
Word Count: 1063
Rating: PG
Summary: Firing a gun and being in a shoot-out. Two drastically different things.
Author Notes: Missing scene from ‘Rampage’, dealing with Charlie suddenly being 'okay' with the shooting. Ignores the tesseract scene (as much as that pains me, 'cause I have a kink for tesseracts. *is a Madeline L'Engle fan*). A million thanks to my beta, Miriam.

Rating: PG
Summary: Sometimes, a person just needs a fix.
Author Notes: Just a cute ficlet. Can be taken as friendshipfic of pre-slash. Again, it'd suck without Miriam.

It took only a few months of being around the math department to notice a few things about Professor Eppes. )

The freakiness of the LOST conspiracy, The Hanzo Foundation, is making me want to flesh out the company and use it in fic. I've never felt such a strong urge to write gen. Seriously, man, the HF could make a twisted mystery fic.

Also, I made about two pages of notes on the fictional, evil Foundation and I had add some psuedo-science and supernatural stuff, mix it up, and have some awesomeness here.

Anyway, it's a great excuse to write Charlie in a ton of danger.

Onto finished projects- I have about three ficlets done for my 50 Lyrics Challenge. I should get around to posting them... *gets on that*

The [livejournal.com profile] 50lyricsfanfic Challenge
Fandom: Numb3rs
Theme: C/L, slash and pre-slash

001.I'll be just fine, pretending I'm not;
I'm far from lonely, and it's all that I've got
002.I write the lines you want me to;
with the words I dare to use
003.a place between sleep and awake;
end of innocence, unending masquerade

004.everyday is the same
when looking straight ahead;
caught in the safety of routine
005.we just can't stop believing,
because we have to try;
we can rise above, the truth and the lies
006.can't say I was never wrong,
but some blame rests on you
007.like violence you have me, forever, and after;
like violence, you kill me, forever and after
008.I’m finding my own words, my own little stage;
my own epic drama, my own scripted page
009.you got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em,
know when to walk away and know when to run
010.hey, when we first met,
I thought that time had come for me to die;
but now I see, that you had come to bring in here new life
011.should I bite my tongue, until blood soaks my shirt;
we'll never fall apart, tell me why this hurts so much
012.it's been a while since I've really spent time with you,
wish I could take back the times that I had
013.I will never hold you underneath for me,
maybe only just enough so you can breathe
014.you're hiding something, 'cause it's burning through your eyes;
I try to get it out, but all I hear from you are lies
015.if you feel scared, a bit confused, I gotta say, this sounds a little
beyond anything I'm used to
016.welcome to the jungle, we take it day by day;
if you want it you're gonna bleed, but it's the price you pay
017.and most of all, I don't need your opinion;
'cause you don't know what it's like to be like me
018.you took me in and you drove me out,
yeah, you had me hypnotized;
lost and found and turned around,
by the fire in your eyes
019.and where I go,
you'll be there with me;
forever you'll be right here with me
020.and say goodbye to the last parade,
and walk away from the choice you made
021.here comes the rain again,
falling from the stars;
drenched in my pain again, becoming who we are.
022.how can you have lived this long, and not give in to rage?
don't you understand; we've both outlived our age?
023.there’s things I’ve done I can’t erase,
every night we fall from grace
024.sound the bugle now - play it just for me;
as the seasons change - remember how I used to be
025.remember all my past time, when the future is waiting for me;
I am lying on this ground, among memories
026.we are flying on wings in winter sky;
with fire burning deep inside
027.I must confess, that my loneliness is killing me now;
don't you know I still believe, that you will be here
028.through long December nights, we talk in words of rain or snow;
while you, through chattering teeth, reply and curse us as you go.
029.just give me one more moment, another walk out in the sun;
one more day to find some justice with your shadow by my side
030.there's a beast upon my shoulder and a fiend upon my back;
feel his burning breath a heaving, smoke oozing from his stack
031.you knocked me out, I can never be the same;
I pushed you over, but here we still remain
032.I lock the door and lock my head,
and dream of butterflies instead
033.your bones are sore and weak,
but your will is as strong as concrete
034.I`m in love with my lust,
burning angel wings to dust
035.another orphaned field, another broken shield;
another voice that whispers: escape, escape, escape
036.you set fire to me that night, you lit and left me burning;
out of my mind, but in my sights, I saw the tables turning
037.so wear me like a locket around your throat;
I'll weigh you down, I'll watch you choke
038.It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine 039.take these broken wings,
and learn to fly again, learn to live so free
040.somewhere after midnight, in my wildest fantasy;
somewhere just beyond my reach, there's someone reaching back for me
041.this is heaven to no one else but me;
and I'll defend it as long as I can be
042.the Sword of Damocles is hanging over my head;
I've got the feeling someone's gonna be cutting the thread
043.if you leave, I won't cry, I won't waste a single day;
but if you leave don't look back, I'll be running the other way
044.love, I get so lost, sometimes;
days pass, and this emptiness fills my heart
045.I never thought that this day would ever come;
when your words and your touch just struck me numb
046.these boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do;
one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you
047.it's a cold day in a cruel world, I really wished I could have saved you;
then who would save me from myself?
048.we're made out of blood and rust;
Looking for someone to trust, without a fight
049.where can I run to, where can I hide;
who will I turn to now I'm in a virgin state of mind
050.it doesn't mean much;
it doesn't mean anything at all
