So, I changed service provider, because my connection was intermittent at best and ridiculously slow. And that meant being without the internet for a whole week. And yes, I have limited access at work, and I resorted to cafes with wireless connections a couple of times, but god, it was painful.
I'm not quite sure when the internet stopped being something that was kind of useful for buying out-of-print books on eBay and became an absolute and fundamental necessity of life. I know it happened even before there were people in my life with whom the internet's my main form of communication, but obviously that makes all the difference.
Which is all to say, I don't post all that much, so you probably mostly haven't noticed that I've been gone, but I've missed you guys.
I have so much to catch up on, and so many comments to write. It may take me a while :)

The usual rambly under the cut :) )

Yay :) Friday night, so a nice lazy evening with DVDs (I got 'The Vampire Diaries' from Cath for Christmas which looks a lot of fun) and gin (LOL obviously. I'm turning into my mother :D).
In which I ramble )
prunesquallormd: (Katie S4 - LOVE)
Well, then. Insert random stuff here, I suppose.

Whitby was all sorts of fun, and the company was fab, and mostly good humoured. I may have drunk rather more gin (and whisky for that matter) than is technically healthy, and I definitely ate more cheese and fudge than my nominally vegan diet would suggest (I miss cheese ok? It's been over a decade, and I've never stopped missing it, and they don't make a decent non-dairy cheese. Trust me, I've looked).

A few days ago, [livejournal.com profile] blurubberband55 posted a Katie Fitch vid that [livejournal.com profile] crackfoxx made for her (the prompt was "Katie Fitch is awesome at life" to the tune of "I'm too sexy"). It may actually be the best thing ever, and it's one of the things things I've seen in the last few days that's brought home to me the total reversal of my opinion on Katie. I loathed her utterly when I first saw season 3, and for months afterwards. Now though? I just want to hug her. I love her so much. This vid may give you a clue as to why.

Cut for teh rambly )
prunesquallormd: (Effy - breaking)
Title: Shell
Fandom: Skins
Pairing(s): Effy/Sophia
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Love unrequited, lust reciprocated.
Word count: 2000
Warnings: PWP/angst
Prompt: "I'm broken too"
Written for the [livejournal.com profile] femslash_today porn battle.
This is the most explicit thing I've ever written, and it's way too smutty for me to be comfortable with anyone I actually know in real life reading it. So it's locked to you guys for the moment. I hope you enjoy it :)
Unlocked now. If you know me in real life, I'd really rather you didn't read this. And if you choose to, let's never speak of it. 'k?

Disclaimer: I don't own Skins or these characters.

The title and opening quotation are from a song by Heather Nova

Beta-ing and invaluable moral support from the incomparable [livejournal.com profile] flister. Thanks dude ♥


“Look at me I'm smooth like a shell,
Put your head down
You can hear the ocean.
Hold my body - feel it roll,
So much inside and it's all been broken.”
Effy stares at her own reflection as she listens to the sobs emanating from the cubicle behind her. )
prunesquallormd: (Effy - mysterious)
and life is pretty much back to normal.
This is just an "I'm still alive" post.


And this is just beautiful. Effy again, because she's one of my favourite characters in anything, ever.

Made by [livejournal.com profile] dazzleme89, and posted at [livejournal.com profile] skinsfans, here.
Enjoy.
prunesquallormd: (Effy - wake up)
Well, yet again, most of the people reading this won't be in the slightest bit interested in these, but it's got to beat having to trawl through my f-locked rantings. And really, even if noone else cares, I could watch these forever.
Seriously, both of them give me chills.

Note: they're both a teeny bit spoilery, the second more so than the first, even though the second uses footage from the series to tell a rather different story (it does it damn cleverly too).



The first, by [livejournal.com profile] dazzleme89, is similar in concept to the one I linked to a few days ago, but a little darker, and it breaks me into lots of little pieces.




And this is [livejournal.com profile] shan_3414's 'trailer' for [livejournal.com profile] jengrrrl's "To Bedlam and Part Way Back", and it's just fabulously done.






And this weekend I'll be visiting Becca and Tom in Wales. Which is nice. But there'll be small children. Gah. *shudder*
