beholdthedrums: [Saxon] (all the time in only my head)
Not that I use this particular LJ that often (although I have been trying to more lately), I've upped and made this journal over at Dreamwidth. It's in the process of importing content.

Likelihood of me doing much? IDK. At least I should have notifs working again, because sheesh, LJ has been sporadic with those for months now :|

Also, in other news, I got on the Archive of Our Own beta. I'm justsleepwalkin there. Don't really have anything new to put there, but I'll upload some stuff from this journal.

And I'm gone for LARP this weekend. Or at least I will be after youtube has the last part of Ashes to Ashes finale. [insert keysmash the length of pi here]

Should be back around Sunday night.

Ferreted from the whole wide world.

Go to my user pics and then pick:

1. Your favorite.
2. Your least favorite.
3. One that makes you automatically think of me.
4. One that you think I should TOTALLY use more often.
5. One that you don't get/needs more explanation/you have no idea why the hell I have it.


I should really do that sleep thing... whoops.

If anyone wants a dreamwidth code for whatever reason please ohgod ask and you can have one. I have 16 now. Admittedly I don't use it much myself. I have a personal journal that I update once in a blue moon and a human!Doctor just... I don't even know why.

But yes. Please take them :|



16th-Apr-2010 11:06 am - a la carte icons
beholdthedrums: [Saxon] (always always returning)
I caved and bought more icons. Anyone that's being crazy like me, it helps to actually read through some of the news post's comments to make sense of how it works. If you have a paid account and had the userpic add-on before a la carte icons, you have 1 package. Therefore, you cannot buy the 1st package listed (listed as 1 package - 70 userpics). Well. You can, but you won't get the icons, you'll just get additional time for the package.

Formerly package 1 was called something like... oooh... 100 extra userpics or something. They renamed that, which is good, because it was a little deceiving. You didn't get 100 more userpics, your total was brought up to 100 (not counting loyalty pics).

Get it? Probably not. It's pretty confusing. But, so, if you have a paid account and the 1st package and you want more icons, you have to buy 2 packages, which will add another 70 icons to your total.

So, I had 105 icons (1 package + loyalty userpics) before I gave LJ another $20 (sigh I hate being an icon whore ;;), and now have a total of 175.

All icon add-ons are built to expire on the same date. Something about distribution time amongst the packages. The staff have some pretty decent explanations in the comments.

-I believe plus/basic accounts can get a total of 15 more icons for $6 ($2 for 5 icons each package).
-I do not know how these add-ons effect permanent accounts.


I need to really write fic. I haven't done much at all...

beholdthedrums: [Saxon] (Ever the charming Saxon.)
I never use to really care for Doctor/Master. And then one day, this LJ for a Doctor Who fic gets featured and I happen to notice it (generally I barely bat an eyelid at the spotlights), and, well, I read the entire thing in one go, and I suppose you can say my eyes were opened.

Anyway! The point is, the same author has written a retelling of End of Time. I’ve been waiting for this awhile now and was not disappointed \o/ I read Aria’s fic and always end up inspired. I just… can barely explain it. It’s like a dizzying sort of joy!

So, here are links to the EoT story, as well as the story that turned me onto the pairing, and even more love when she wrote another snuggly long fic.

after me comes the flood (End of Time retelling) [Warning: character death.]
Season Four (s4-AU)
Season Five (s5-AU, unrelated to the above fic)

They are all fantastic and I highly recommend each if you have not already read them \o/

beholdthedrums: [Saxon] (You crack me up! Really!)
Okay so it's 6am and I'm still debating if forcing myself to sleep a few hours is possible.

Since I'm currently still awake, here's a meme.

Superhero team meme! Which is kind of 'lol' for the Master, but I've figured the kinks out. )

I think I will try and force-sleep. /sigh

beholdthedrums: [Saxon] (Ever the charming Saxon.)
Eleven chapters, 97 pages, 55,674 words.

I feel positively gleeful.

But seriously, how the hell do people manage NaNoWriMo? This took me like... a year. Although I was really stuck on one part for awhile, 'til I actually realized that there's really no information on the Gates of Elysium or the Nightmare Child, so really I could just use my artistic license lol. Huzzah to that.

I'll probably only post it on Teaspoon. IDK. Anyone know how loading something from the computer turns out? Any weird formatting creeping from nowhere? I've always done html posts. So3 is currently lacking HTML lol.

I know I've probably edited about half of it more than once, combed through many parts heavily... but gah, I need to do it again, and certainly read the whole thing through in one go. -.-;

Still needs a good chunk actually written in chapter eight too, technically... Whoops.

So it'll still probably be another good month or two til I actually get it to my liking and post the damn thing. BUT! I AM HAPPY. /o/ \o/ \o\


On unrelated notes:
- [livejournal.com profile] taxonomites; I'll probably unglitch the Master tomorrow. If anyone wants Yana for anything else, just ask!

- I'm really irritated by the distinct lack of lyrics for Crooked Man by Show of Hands. I can't make out everything! Grrr. The lyrics I can make out, however, are just so very the Master :D

Behind a cut because unlike the Master, I'm a nice person. )

I've been meaning to do that since I maxed out his icons lol.

I should do something like, IDK, write, but I'll probably end up playing WoW >____> or maybe stab 10.5
