First of all, this was the fic I received for Yuletide:

Remixed (Pitch Perfect) - When a new a capella group emerges on the BU campus, both the Bellas and the Treblemakers find themselves in a difficult position. Will they be able to deal with this upstart rival in the world of a capella, and how will they do it?

I was so happy to get Pitch Perfect fic! This is a really sweet story, with the Bellas and Treblemakers teaming up to face off a rival group, and there are lots of little jokes between the characters, just like in canon :)


9 recs in 10 fandoms: Anne of Green Gables, Ballet Shoes, Black Books, Discworld, Never Mind the Buzzcocks RPF, Pitch Perfect, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Uncharted, West Wing/Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter )

Anybody have any other favourites to rec me?

Small Demons

Came across this site today as a result of a Globe and Mail article. It's basically a website that tries to catalogue all the little details of books and cross-catalogue them - so for example, you could find out any book that mentions or features Greta Garbo, or a particular street in Edinburgh, or whatever. But it also means you can detail check small elements of any book in their database - and add details for books if they're not in there already.

I think this could be an amazing resource for fanfic writers, and probably academics too... I just made an account!

It has to be A Muppet's Christmas Carol - I basically watch it every single year!

OK, so for the moment, this account is intended as a back-up while LJ is down, in case LiveJournal genuinely implodes and never returns. (Fingers crossed, it won't!) Presuming that LJ comes back up again, this account may end up being my rants-in-German account, since I occasionally get the urge to type long posts auf Deutsch, and this way they won't block up my LJ f-list. We shall see...

(In the meantime, feel free to friend me here!)

I went shopping for clothes today for the first time in aaaaages (literally about a year!) and got some pretty things from Zara, all of them on sale. Yay!

This is what I got:

Spoilers behind the cut, of course )

Extra factoid - I realised which village they're using to film Leadworth: it's a place called Skenfrith in Monmouthshire. I know this because my aunt used to live there and as soon as I saw the castle I recognised it. I spent a fair amount of time playing with my cousins in that castle! The castle even has a website with pictures, go see for yourself!

Edited, because I seriously screwed up all the formatting... HTML fail...

So... I'm back. And I'll be posting most days from now on, at least for the next month or so, and then as often as I can after that. This is because at the end of May I'm doing a roadtrip across various bits of the continent, then moving to Vienna, and then I'm moving to Toronto, and I'd rather like to document all of this. You can therefore expect photos, among other things!

Here's what I've been doing since I last posted... )

I have been following my f-list even though I haven't been posting, so I have some idea what you're all up to, but come tell me your exciting news and anything I may have missed in the last 6 months!
