fandom is my (mostly) happy place

mood: amused

Dom and Sean Bean are in a movie about bored rich guys playing war (ETA: it's currently called "Soldier of Fortune" and there's more info and pictures on dom_media (members only) and the Dominic Monaghan Resource.)

I looove this photo
Dom and Sean Bean dressed as soldiers

This is not a beecake:

bee-type dessert

Actually, it's a "honey-pistachio frozen parfait, covered in bee-emblazoned white-chocolate-cardamom sheets," inspired by a famous Richard Avedon portrait of a beekeeper with bees on his skin, and made for the SF Museum of Modern Art. From Design*Sponge (scroll down).
For those of you baffled by this item, Billy's band is called Beecake. Besides the pleasure of Billy singing, I just like them: the lyrics make sense and the tunes are catchy enough to stick in my head and hum at random times.


I don't usually inspire fic, but [personal profile] lannamichaels asked for a prompt and wrote a bittersweet 10-year-anniversary Lotrips fic: We Are Famous; Our Hearts Are Legends. The second-to-last line totally gets to me.

And as part of that fandom clan wank*, [journalfen.net profile] mochibuni wrote: I bet JK Rowling is thrilled, fucking thrilled I tell you, that Harry is having a Slytherin leather pants gang bang somewhere with Hermione watching over the proceedings while sitting on top of a gilded hippogriff throne I challenged her to write it, and she did, even more crackficcy! with JRR Tolkien as her unsympathetic psychotherapist: The JK Rowling Sessions.
* my only comment on the clan wank is that articulate people should not reply quickly and publicly when someone seems to attack them or things they love. Actually, none of us should post in public in that situation, but the more eloquent a writer, the bigger a hole they dig for themselves.

Glad you like it! I've been happily looking at it for a while, even when it was in the horrible watermarked-everywhere version.

:) ...well the way things are right now funding-wise, i'd only get paid to go if i was presenting at a conference or somesuch.

as for going under my own steam, i don't think birdboy would be too impressed if i buggered off by myself, and he has zero desire to go to the states. boo!

San Francisco / Berkeley is not "The States". It's a state of mind! Seriously, it's a gorgeous place and there is much to see and do. The time to come is March, when it's dreary in England but here it's nice. It may rain some days but it's not really cold, and everything's blooming and lush. *lures you here*

We don't have an extra bedroom, but we do have a very comfortable couch and a cot...

ONLY IF YOU HELP ME, KIDDO! I am needing squee in a significant way. And... I just came up with a little something!

SEAN BEAN: I am a manly man and have much experience in holding weapons properly. Let me help you, Dom. We can even go to the firing range, and I will wrap my arms around you and show you exactly how to shoot.

tig to you... or not tig, I just can't do it alone.

My mind went along the lines of like,

SEAN BEAN: So last time we were on a movie together you and Billy were shagging like rabbits, how's that going for you?

DOM MONAGHAN: Angstily. I am in need of comfort. Carnal comfort, if that wasn't clear.

Because really, I am a tinkilt at heart. :-P

I'm responding here to your other post because I'm concerned. I'm sorry you're feeling so down. Please know that I am here to help if I can at all. I know you've tried a number of things to feel better and that must be frustrating. So we need to look at things you haven't tried. You are the only you. You are too precious to feel this way.

One thing that really worked for me was exercise. It doesn't matter what you do, yoga or swimming or running. Hobbies work and I know you spend a lot of time in fandom but perhaps a hobby off-line would help. These may be poor suggestions but it's just what's coming to mind. I just want you to know that you're not alone and if I can help please let me know.
