I did it! I came up with another meme pun! Now I just need one for next time, and the time after that...

Birthdays: [livejournal.com profile] noelia_g (30 May); [livejournal.com profile] inlovewithnight (1 June); [livejournal.com profile] pinkdormouse (2 Junes). Happy birthday to all of you!

Am almost finished the Ender's Game fic I owe for the Apocalyptothon. Val and Petra don't seem to want to have sex, although I had to practically restrain Peter to keep him from jumping his sister. Would desperately love a beta.

Courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] penknife, who gakked it from [livejournal.com profile] neotama: The Regender. It swaps the genders of all the characters in any fic (or any website at all, for that matter). Not all that effective on my fic, as it tends to get confused with names that are also words like Dawn and Faith, and turns Darla, Dawn, and Drusilla all into Davids (creating the potential for much confusion) but is much fun nonetheless. Also it underscored for me how important role reversal and other types of gender subversion are in Buffy in general and my fic in particular: with the genders swap, much of my fic felt flatter, less original, less exciting.

Gakked from [livejournal.com profile] inlovewithnight:

What is your alias?
Episkopos Reverend Alixtii O'Krul V, TRL

How did you choose it?
It is my Discordian Holy Name. I picked it because it one takes the form of a name and defies expectations of what a name should be. And double -ii at the end of words is fun. The "TRL" stands for "Three Random Letters."

What fandoms do you write for?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Robert Heinlein's World-as-Myth, Veronica Myth, RPF, and coming soon, Ender's Game. At FF.net you'll find Star Trek and XMM fic too.

What fics are you currently working on?
I have a lot of projects planned, but only a small handful I am currently working on.
"Not With a Bang But a Whimper": Buffy/Darla AU.
"Surrender": Spike, Faith AU.
To Live in Hearts: The long plotty fic in which I reveal the source of Madelyn's powers and set up Faith/Kennedy and Dawn/Giles in the Watcher!verse.
"Richard the Third, Act Two, Scene Three, Line Sixteen": Ender's Game fic I hope to post very soon, mentioned above.
Untitled Narnia RPF/BtVS crossover.

What fandom did you start in?
Either Voyager or Buffy depending on how you look at it.

What is your deepest darkest fic-writing secret?
I don't get the question. Fic-writing by its nature is a social activity. If I had a secret, though, I'm not sure I'd announce it to the world because a meme told me to.

Do you have any quirks/habits in your writing?
There are a few themes I reuse. I need to get a couple new themes.

Do you have any fanfiction pet peeves?
Yes.

Do you have an OTP?
Mal/Kaylee.

If you could get someone to write a fic for you right now, who would it be?
I plead the fifth.

Put my media player on random, and came up with the following movie soundtrack (meme gakked from [livejournal.com profile] yhlee):

Opening Credits: "Song Man" by Harry Chapin
Appropriate enough, I suppose: framing the movie in a suitably metafictional way.

Waking up: "Rescue" from Muppet Treasure Island
An exciting day from the very first moment! Although waking up to a long instrumental piece can't help but make me think of the Overture to "Once More With Feeling."

Falling in love: "The Hornburg" by Howard Shore, from Lord of the Rings
Suitably wistful, I suppose.

Fight scene: "The Marvelous Madame Mim" from The Sword and the Stone
Well, I suppose we know who the villain is, heh?

Breaking up: "End Title" to Star Trek: The Motion Picture
Well, I guess sometimes being single could be seen as a mission of exploration....

Getting back together: "Christmas" from The Who's Tommy
They believe in dreams and all they mean, / Including Heaven's generosity.
And of course there's the everpresent fear of hell, and breakdowns in communication as soon as the relationship starts: "Tommy, can you hear me?"

Secret love: "We Need a Little Christmas" from A Muppet Family Christmas
I'm not sure what the continuation of the Christmas=Love conceit signifies. Nor what this song signifies in this context at all.

Life's okay: "Little Saint Nick" by John Denver and the Muppets
I do have music other than Christmas and muppet music, I swear!

Mental breakdown: "Finale" to Fiddler on the Roof
Yeah.

Driving: "Who's Been Painting My Roses Red?" from Alice in Wonderland
I don't have a clue.

Flashback: "Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee" from Grease
That's a flashback, all right.

Partying: "I Like Life" from Scrooge
Works for me.

Happy dance: "A-E-I-O-U" from Alice in Wonderland
Cementing my conviction that the pseudorandom function on the media player is more pseudo than it is random.

Regretting: "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
Regretting what is lost?

Long night alone: "It Was a Very Good Year" by William Shatner
But now the days are short, / I'm in the autumn of the year, / And now I think of my life as vintage wine from fine old kegs.

Death scene: "A Lovely Night" by Bernadette Peters, from Roger and Hammerstein's Cinderella
I got nothing.

End credits: "Back Chat" by Queen

Shows how well the human mind can find patterns even in randomness, and construct a story out of anything? (Anyone read Calvino's Castle of Crossed Destinies lately?)

If anyone requests a commentary of my fic I will, as always, write it. May do one anyway--haven't decided yet.

I would have thought your inbox would be overflowing with people clamoring to be your beta. It's been a few years since I read the Ender books, but I'd be glad to give it a shot if you'd like to send me an email.

Simply contact a qufiialed real estate agent, preferably one experienced in dealing with foreclosure properties. Well over 95% of foreclosed homes are listed with real estate agencies for disposition. No better place to look than there.
