Currently: Adding - Inbetween Adding - Not Adding

I like to pretend that I'm a relatively normal person. I enjoy fangirling, the overuse of commas, shipping things that move and penguins. I also write quite a bit and I'm half-penguin, who speaks plenty of sarcasm. Miscellaneous interests of mine include (but are not limited to): music, all Disney-things, psychology/sociology/communication, trying not to burn popcorn and learning how to be myself.

I'm certainly open to adding new friends, so comment here if you'd like to be friends! :D

About Me

This is my lovely (and probably quite awkward) intro post. I like to ramble, so here we go:

+ My name is Amber. I'm twenty-four years young; and I've decided that becoming an adult is not for me.

+ I love to read and write, and I plan on some day, writing/publishing a YA novel. However, until then, you can usually find me at work...doing manager-type things.

+ I love TV season. The shows I'm crazy about -- The Mentalist, How I Met Your Mother, The X-Files, Leverage, Chuck, Once Upon a Time, Psych, The Following, Parks and Recreation, Wayward Pines, Galavant, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt.

+ I write fanfiction and I ship almost everything. You can find my Masterlist of Fic on my journal, because I enjoy having others read what I write. Currently, I'm in the middle of no huge projects...shocker.


marking it down to learning

I wish I actually had something to update everyone on, but I don't.

So instead, have a meme!

I borrowed this meme from bot tromana and miss_peg!

Quote a bit of my writing at me? Find that one story of mine that you really like, and find a sentence or a paragraph that presses your prose-buttons in the right way, and comment here with it, no matter how long or short. Then copy/paste this into your journal, and we'll all have a big love-in!

From tromana

In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my 'door.' Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I'm glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.).

The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!

100 Things Challenge: more reasons to never sleep

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}

So, after much thinking and deliberation...I have decided I'm going to go ahead and take the plunge. I need to thank my entire f-list, who seriously provided me with enough encouragement to actually try this. With that being said, I have given much thought into possible topics: 100 books that have made me smile/100 movies that I need to see/100 things about {insert show here} that make me have feelings/100 pictures of penguins in hats...(the last one isn't a joke.)

Isn't she cute, guys?

But I quickly realized that I can't do any of that (besides the 100 pictures of penguins in crazy/creepy hats), because it would be really hard to choose out of so many things in my life. So, in the end I decided to write 100 one-shots for The Mentalist {note: crossovers between TM/something else do count} and maybe in turn, write 100 commentaries on said fics. It's a huge project, I know...but I need more reasons to better my writing, before I decide to start writing a novel again.

Now, because writing 100 one-shots will take time (and ideas, that I clearly don't have stockpiled at the moment)...I'm going to ask for prompts; I will take any pairing, genre, for the possible crossovers though, just ask...because I might surprise you with what I can attempt to write. ;)

(Another note: entries for this "100 Things" will be public. I will still be keeping all my other journal entries friends only. :D)

December Fic Requests 2011

December Fic Requests (2011)
I briefly thought about pushing these back till February, but I will have more time in December to write. So, I went ahead and borrowed this from spyglass_.
* * *
Comment with: a day, a fandom, a character/pairing, and a prompt that will also serve as the title*, and I will write at least 300 words for you, to be posted on the day you claimed. Any fandom you know I'm familiar with** is fair game, though I reserve the right to ask for a different prompt if you pick something I don't feel comfortable writing***, or a fandom I haven't been into in a long time.
* * *
You can ask more than once, but I ask that you don't claim all the days at once. :) I just want to give everybody the chance to request something.

1: Prompts are hard. If you'd like, you can reserve a date now and come back with a pairing/prompt later.
2: TV Fandoms: The Mentalist, Necessary Roughness, Psych, Castle, Body of Proof, and The X-Files. If there's anything else you would like me to do, and you know I've seen it, read it, or breathed it...please ask. I will also do crossovers. I will do any pairing, really.
3. Nothing makes me uncomfortable. I'm a write-all, type of person. But, if I seriously can't get the bunnies to cooperate, I will come and ask you for a different prompt. (Each of the bunnies has their own names, and don't take offense if they walk away from the idea. It's really just them being difficult.)
