So this morning I'm all set to leave, literally have him hand on the doorknob
when I hear Lexi chirp behind me (she chirps. It's a thing.) I turn around just in time to see her pounce an enormous freaking centipede
, knocking her water bowl over in the process because she is a creature of unparalleled stealth and grace. I managed to step on the hideous thing (it was on my boot, ew, ew, ew) but by the time I shooed her away and cleaned up the water and refilled the bowl I'd blown a good 10-15 minutes.
End result? Bug eliminated, but the delay made me literally two minutes late clocking in. So I guess you win this round, nature
So I think I know what I'm nominating for Yuletide this year! (I sat out last year, I'd signed up for Too Many Things, but I had a lot of Yuletide Envy come reveal time.) Here's what I wrote in the brainstorming post
Characters: Doc, Wyatt, Morgan, Virgil (easiest picks ever.:)
I think Tombstone is fairly well known, just not well ficced and it's one of my very favorite things. Into The Woods
Characters: The Baker, Cinderella, Jack, Red
This is the Sondheim musical and it's both streaming on Netflix and on DVD (with a fantabulous cast.) Post musical-fic, with second chances at love and found families and picking up the pieces, please. (I wish!)Warriors of Virtue
Characters: Komodo, Grillo, ???? (any of the Roos, really)
WoV is a late-90's kid's martial arts flick about a boy named Ryan who takes a dare trying to impress the popular kids and winds up falling into a magical world where he befriends a group of kangaroo-people martial artists who embody the elements of fire, wood, metal, earth and water. As you do.
But let's look past the plot, such as it is; I'm a huge sucker for Crazy Overlord/Loyal Lieutenant dynamics and this movie might as well have been made for me
. The villains really do make the movie and even them aside, the sets and costumes are gorgeous and the world itself is interesting. This is far from the greatest movie ever made but I love it with ever beat of my sad fangirl heart and just want to see any
fic for it.
It's also currently complete on youtube
. Please watch! (and I'd like to point you all to around 48:00, where there's handholding and Overlord asking Lieutenant if his Evil robes are flattering. I am not even kidding.)
Anyone else doing Yuletide? Whatcha nominating? Whatcha offering? *chinhands*
(BTW, please, please someone nominate Left 4 Dead 2 and Human Target. I was planning to offer those but no one's even mentioned them yet!)
While I'm in a begging mood, grasshopr_molly
