I don't want to sit on the pavement while you fly

.un: Layout credits go to [ profile] phailboat; header lyrics from Battle For The Sun by Placebo.

.deux: I feel very bad about not commenting a whole lot lately (or hardly at all), but I barely know how to hold myself together these days, so there's that. I promise to try and be a lot better about it in the very near future. In the meantime, feel free to defriend at your leisure.

.trois: My t-shirt reads 'Mr. Pudding', so each time I look in the mirror I have to think of Dean and laugh. Oh Dean, I miss you muchly, you silly awesome boy.

.quatre: I'm hungry, and nothing but mashed potatoes will do. Time to do some food hunting.

.cinq: I don't really have the time, but I can't stop thinking about Five Things Dean & Cas Can't Do In The Future (And Five They Still Can). If I keep it short, maybe I'll get it out of my head today.

silent from a night so cold

# I'm thinking about Dean and Cas in Zach's Croatoan timeline, sharing a moment of comfort and hope of a future that won't see Dean having lost everything, including himself. I quite like the idea, but I'm not sure I'm ready to write it.

# Headcold of doom has me in its grasp. Which is all right, as long as I don't develop a cough. Although I have to admit that not being able to breathe through my nose is bothering me more than I thought possible.

# Photoshop hates me these days, and I have a feeling it might be more than a phase.

# I need new music. Only I don't have the time to go hunting for it. Bummer.

# As much as I like My Bloody Valentine, I don't feel the slightest urge to rewatch it. Mostly because of the food-related grossness, but also because I have issues with the portrayal of Cas and Dean being Buffy of season 6. I'll have to wait and see where they're going with that, but for now, I don't quite like it.

jeden raum mit sonne geflutet

# I'm all about vibrant colors these days. Amazingly, my unfinished spn icons folder doesn't reflect that. That's got to change.

# Today, I worked my way through another exam. No idea whether I passed or not; I'm just very relieved that it's over so that I can tackle the last part (oral exams, eeeep).

# I tried my hand at a new header to express my admiration for The Song Remains The Same. Dean finally met the one person I've been waiting for, and I really love how they handled the whole thing. Can't wait for more!

# How wickedly cool are the UK promos for season 5 of Supernatural? I'm thrilled to see Show get so much attention!

# My Bloody Valentine tonight - and then a 6 week hiatus?! Why so cruel, Kripke, why so cruel?

# In other news, I'm completely addicted to Pixel Junk's Eden for the PS3; it's so relaxing and engaging both at the same time. I wish there were a whole lot more games like it.

you're on your own tonight

Happy New Year, everyone!

Google keeps amusing me with that falling apple. Happy birthday, Sir Isaac. ♥

Still busy with my season 4 rewatch; it's slow going, especially since I keep hopping back to old favorites of seasons 1 & 2. Last night, AHBL II made me cry and cry, and I realized I miss John a whole lot more than I thought. I hope we'll see him again, in one form or another.

I've been working on a Dean moodtheme for some time now, and finally finished it. I thought I'd share it here, in case someone else feels like using it:

moodtheme preview dean

-> full preview
-> download (1.14 mb)

And since the SPN hiatus seems to last forever, I also made a Dean wallpaper, because there can never be enough Dean:

preview wallpaper dean
Text reads Hell hath no fury that I have not known.
Textures, as always, by the lovely [ profile] elli.

(edited to add a full preview; many thanks to [ profile] skydawnjade for pointing out that the previous link didn't work. &hearts)

ready for silence and the heat

What a craptastic week it has been. Things are beginning to look up again though, so there's that.

On top of discovering tons of (relatively) new music, I think I've also found my favorite shot of Dean ever. Dean's so very pretty when he's looking down, especially when he's combining that with a frown and a pout. ♥

I've been toying with several fic ideas, but writing time is scarcer than ever these days, so I think I'll have to choose one and stick with it for the time being. I'm completely in love with the idea of a WWI AU, in which a relatively young Dean serves as an orderly to Captain Jim Novak and they slowly fall into this secret, on-off affair that could end oh so very badly for both of them but of course that's no reason for them to keep away from each other. Probably the most unpopular pairing ever, but I like how it's still sort of Dean/Cas, minus the sometimes slightly awkward angelic angle.

In other news I might go AWOL for some time, but I will try and catch up with the flist as often as I can.

on another side of time

Fic ideas keep piling up (Bobby as a plot device! Brothers separated at a very young age [I know this has been done but I want my own version mkay] AU! Sam going over to the Dark Side!) and I am amazed to see just how creative a brain can get when it comes to developing procrastination strategies. The things I'm getting done! Except for the writing! /pulling out of hair

Still haven't made any progress on the Supernatural marathon but I might just talk myself into finishing season 3 this week. I'm in serious Dean withdrawal and I'm even starting to miss Sam a little, so.

In other news I've been going through my music collection, feeding old favorites to the kawaiiPod and now I can't stop listening to the damn thing. Which, hey, okay, sleep is overrated anyway. Yay for Make You Mine by Heather Nova and David Usher's Black Black Heart (slow version). ♥ (Which reminds me: I kinda feel like making a Dean or Sam/Dean fanmix. Ohai there, strategy for avoiding writing yet again.)

do it again and I'll see you tomorrow

.one I'm working on a black and white Lazarus Rising picspam; it's a bit of an on and off thing because I get distracted by teh pretty a lot.

This is my favorite so far but I'm only halfway through and there are many many more. Dean kinda does that to me. ♥

.two I need it to be May, and bad. Star Trek and Terminator: Salvation both look stunning and I WANT THEM NOW.

.two a The latest Star Trek trailer leaves me flailing whenever I watch it (which: I do that a lot, a whole lot), what with the awesometastic music and I dare you to do better and FIRE EVERYTHING at the top of Nero's voice. Also: Karl Urban as Bones and Zach Quinto as Spock! Such. Love.

.two b The Terminator: Salvation trailer #3 kills me with the Nine Inch Nails and Christian Bale and the stunning clarity and starkness of its imagery. I have a thing for post-apocalyptic stories so yeah, this one'll do nicely.

.three I want to see Slumdog Millionaire, because it will be awesome. I'll probably cry my eyes out but still.

.four As late to the party as ever, but: I really really love The Republic Tigers and Starsailor. The Tigers' The Nerve is on infinite replay in the back of my head; it's just that catchy. But your eyes are dumbin' me down And I can't take mine off of you.

bring back those good ol' days

Fresh in from the hairdresser's and my hair smells evil. I just don't think I want to know what kind of product they used.

Here's the deal with me and Supernatural: I was right on board with season 1 back in the day when it hit the air, then I got thrown off the track for a good long while. Now I'm easing my way back in; I've completed my rewatch of season 1 and season 2 is right around the corner. That said, I'm not totally oblivious of what's down the road: I (vaguely) know about Tuesdays, and Deals, and Angels, and man, I'm kinda scared to watch more because my heart's swelling with grief for Dean already and I'm not even that far into the show. Salvation and Devil's Trap just about killed me; Jensen's performance is that awesome. It seems like there's nothing but pain in it for Dean and that's so hard to watch. I need some happy!Dean, damnit. He deserves it.

And now for a mini Dean picspam because I feel like it:
