Happy New Year! It's meme time!

Long meme is long )

If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach. —Alfred Hitchcock

When I write a story, what do readers immediately look for?

Stolen from [ profile] lefaym, [ profile] topgeargirl and [ profile] alba17. I think this is really accurate, but it's only how I see myself of course. Does anyone agree?

you are lavender

Your dominant hue is blue, making you a good friend who people love and trust. You're good in social situations and want to fit in. Just be careful not to compromise who you are to make them happy.

Your saturation level is very low - you have better things to do than jump headfirst into every little project. You make sure your actions are going to really accomplish something before you start because you hate wasting energy making everyone else think you're working.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

Apologies to everyone, but particularly [ profile] ruthyf who I still owe auction fic to. I'm nearly at the end of term, but I'm also in one of my worst writing dry-spots for years. No energy, no words, too many plot bunnies. I need to take a couple of days to get the caffeine out of my system, because all it's doing is keeping me awake, so I can't sleep, and I need more caffeine the next day to merely function and... ever decreasing circles, people, ever decreasing circles.

Soon I will find words, but for the moment these words were given to me by [ profile] angelkitty101

If you want to play, request your words and I will find some that remind me of you. Somewhere. And then you have to tell me what thy mean to you.

Morris )

Fandom )

Travel )

So far this year, I've only been to Cardiff (apart from, you know, New Year in Sydney, then to New York, then back to the UK). I'm doing at least one trip to London to see the Dr Who exhibition and to meet Mum's new gay bff, and I need to go to Birmingham to see [ profile] angelkitty101, and back to Cardiff to do more research for my dissertation and to do the Torchwood tour, and I want to go to Brighton Pride this year and maybe a couple of others. I don't know, really, but I get around a lot. I need a job to be able to fund it.

Music )

And that's a bit more of me. I think I'm going to go to bed now.

Put your iPod/mp3 player/iTunes/music player of choice on Shuffle mode.

For each question, press the 'Next' button to get your answer.

You MUST write the song name down that comes up, no matter how silly it sounds as an answer to the question or how embarrassing it is.

Make snarky comments as necessary.

I'm using Spotify, so I'm using my starred playlist. And skipping any I can't spell. (I have stuff in Gaelic and can't copy pasta)

There's a meme going around where you sum up the WIPs saved on your computer, but I can't do that because I don't work like that. I finish a chapter or short story and I post it, so no fragments sitting around. Any fragments I do have are scraps of conversations or descriptions that don't actually fit into a wider story yet.

What I do have are a couple of ongoing stories that I'm in the middle of writing and posting.

Did they sell it?
Sue, and keep whatever name they used as a pseudonym to publish dirty, dirty porn under. So I can write sparkling, wonderful children's stories that are more popular than Jesus Harry Potter, and they can be remembered as someone who wrote good but slightly squicky porn.

I hate driving with a passion, but I do like my cars pretty. I'm also a big fan of Top Gear.

My top five cars that I would like to own are:
1. Mazda MX5 from 2005 - lovely car, and this is my favourite model for the shape. Is pretty
2. E Type Jaguar from 1963 - I gave Jack one of these which runs across all my 'verses, and I am very jealous.
3. Aston Martin DB9 Volante - Do I need to explain?
4. Rover 75 - Better looking than the Jaguar it was competing with, and got a good review from James May. I approve.
5. Lamborgini Gallardo - in powder blue. It's so pretty!

So, I am procrastinating, and I thought it would be fun to play Desert Island Discs. The rules are:

You are to be cast away on a desert island and you can only take so much with you. As well as the Complete Works of Shakespeare and a religious or philosophical text of your choice, you can take:
Eight pieces of music.
One book
One luxury, which cannot be useful in escaping.

My choices would be: )
That got long, edited to add cut.

When I was 11 (9 years ago, if you're counting), I joined a Lord of the Rings fan forum. I was blonde haired, blue eyed and fairly slim, and fancied myself as Galadriel, but Galadriel and Galadriel11 were both taken, so Galadriel1010 I became.

Then I joined LiveJournal as Galadriel1010 and ignored it for about a year, thus forgetting my username. Came back to use it, tried to sign up as Galadriel1010, thought someone had taken my username becasue my usual password din't match and set it up with a different name. 1010 because I always am, and Fiwen because it's Rachel translated into Sindarin.

So I am Fiwen1010, but I sign myself as G.

1. Name 2 characters from any of my fandoms. I can do Torchwood, Doctor who, Discworld, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Jasper Fforde, Sherlock, Top Gear, Pirates of the Caribbean... just because I don't doesn't mean I can't or won't ;)
2. Name a destination, anywhere in the known or created universes.
3. I'll write you one character's postcard to the other, from that destination.
5. Profit.

Go to Wikipedia and hit random. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
Go to and hit random. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
Go to flickr and click on explore the last seven days. Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
Use photoshop or similar to put it all together. Post it with this text in the caption.

First line from the first post of each month. I skipped fic headers, because they're all pretty much the same.

I didn't start using LJ properly until Spetember, as evidenced by the fact that I posted a few times every couple of months up to that point, and then every day in October. Can you say 'burnout'?

February 15th:
"If Gwen Cooper knew what she was doing, she could easily be considered one of TV's uberbitches – a woman who manipulates those around her to get what she wants, puts down her competition and makes others do the work she doesn't want to do, then makes them feel bad for doing it."
Start as we mean to go on... This was a fun post about everything I hate about Gwen, pretty much. And three paragraphs of explaining why Cyberwoman was her fault.

March 25th:
"A little bit of everything:"
I did a WIP meme. I only had 3 WIPs with postable stuff at the time, though. I never really have many more, because I finish something (chapter at least), post it and then move on to the next thing, so I have no unfinished documents that haven't been laked.

September 9th:
"Ianto had the Tourist Office door propped open to enjoy the cool sea breeze off the bay and let some natural light into the grubby office whilst he worked."
Oneshot about Ianto not speaking Welsh.

October 1st:
"Jack opened one eye at the creak of the door that was his only warning and tightened his arm, bracing Ianto."
Christmas morning with Alice and Steven

November 1st:
"Ianto woke slowly, awareness uncurling through him like syrup and leaving his limbs heavy and loose."
Anniversary fic

December 1st:
"Fantastic day!"
Diary post about Brisbane.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, Fiwen1010 sent to me...
Twelve badly_knitteds drumming
Eleven xtricks piping
Ten cjharknessgirls a-leaping
Nine neifile7s dancing
Eight alba17s a-milking
Seven pocky_slashs a-swimming
Six amand_rs a-writing
Five ce-e-e-eilidhs
Four folk festivals
Three discworld series
Two ianto jones
...and a fanfiction in a laligin.
Get your own Twelve Days:

Now... I'm not sure if this is people I'm stalking, or people who are stalking me... actually, what you all seem to have in common is that you're people I see around and who I would like to get to know better, but who I don't interact with much at the moment. So maybe it's a message from the internet that I should stop beind shy?

In 2011, Fiwen1010 resolves to...
Give up ceilidhs.
Tell my family about ianto jones.
Eat more discworld series.
Pay for my folk festivals on time.
Give up writing.
Learn to play the fanfic.

Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

And, um... no way. Apart from the 'eat more Discworld'. I can devour those happily. Tell family about Ianto? More like stop telling them about Ianto randomly and at length.

Bit of fun, anyway.
