Pinned toot

Here's something of an introduction: I'm enchantedsleeper, a fandom obsessive with a love of documenting things. I can also be found at @enchantedsleeper where I have all of one (1) follower XD (A dear friend) Fandoms-wise, I'm big into Marvel Cinematic Universe and Harry Potter, but have recently begun dabbling in Arrowverse and Murderbot. I can also be found on AO3, Dreamwidth and Fanlore under this handle <3

You know you've got a good fic idea when thinking about it makes your heart go "!!!!!!" =3

Me: *copies text on phone*

*presses paste on laptop*

"Why didn't that work??? ....oh, right ๐Ÿ™ˆ"

Creepy fortune teller: "I'm afraid these cards indicate a great misfortune in your future"

ME: "not so fast!" *raises duel disk* "you triggered my trap card: mirror force!"

FT: "I'm sorry? I don't understand"

ME: "that clears the table of your reading. Next, I play pot of greed, which allows me to draw two more cards from the deck *lays out*

FT: "wha- that's not how this works. that's not how any of this works!"

ME: "and the new card is 'the world' upright, meaning I will receive a sense of completion and contentment in my current endeavors!"

FT: "what is going on?!?"

ME: "now I have defeated your evil fortune, so you are banished to the shadow realm"

FT: "please leave my shop"

Longfic/chaptered fic woes 

I've been so exhausted lately (and went to bed late again last night, sort of through no fault of my own) that last night I slept like the absolute dead - I think my body just went into defensive hibernation xD However, it worked and I feel better today! (instead of blegh like I usually do) and woke up ready to eat lots of food and mainline coffee ๐Ÿ’ชโ˜•

Last week was a Very Long Week but on Sunday it ended on the ultimate high note: AO3 WON A FORKING HUGO AWARD!!!! We flipping did it!!!! I got so emotional seeing these nerds on stage and the fact that they all went up there. I've never had the pleasure of meeting Naomi Novik/astolat but I've met two of the other peeps in that picture and they're incredible people, and I'm honoured to volunteer with them in the OTW.

We did it, you guys. Fandom did it.

I didn't set out to eat two bowls of Weetos today, but I was too tired to make food decisions this evening, so there we go.

I've been going to bed at a reasonable time (between 10:30 and 11pm) every night for the past few nights and getting a decent amount of sleep. So whyyyyy am I still so damn tired when I wake up?



I've updated the "Alternatives to Amazon Books" page to make it clearer.

If you're looking for alternatives to Amazon Books, or Amazon's book-related properties (Kindle, Goodreads, Audible), here are some suggestions:

#Amazon #DeleteAmazon #Books #eBooks #Audiobooks

More #Alternatives:

But I know that if I don't do this, it's going to be yet another missed opportunity that I regret, and I'll still spend all my time thinking about the vids that might have been.

This way, at least I'll know I gave it a shot.

The thing is that there'll always be other things I can spend my time on, and right now is no exception - there's an absolute laundry list of things I could (and probably should) spend my weekend doing instead.

But the timing of the con felt like some kind of sign - it's just close enough to give me a deadline, but far enough away that it feels realistic to be able to put something together. Will it be any good? Who knows!

I've dreamed of making fanvids for absolute years - long before I knew what they were called. I used to imagine them while listening to music on my way to school. But I've always been too nervous to actually sit down and try to make one (plus, getting hold of the footage in the first place can be tricky).

Lately my ideas have become more concrete, and more than once I had an idea that I decided would be It - the one I finally make. Yet I still never found the time to actually do the thing.

This weekend, I'm embarking on making my first ever fanvid - using Adobe Premiere Pro, which I've also never used before xD Hands-on learning is the best way to go, right?

The lucky fandom is Good Omens, where I have not one but two ohmygod-so-perfect-that-I-have-to-make-it ideas for fanvids. If all goes well, I'm hoping to submit at least one - maybe both - of them to the vid screening at The Ineffable Con, which I'm attending (\o/) in October. The deadline is the 30th September.

When someone says "I want all the fics" and asks for recs and then it turns out that they're actually looking for something very specific ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

If you want specific recs, *say so*, instead of saying you want "all the fics" and then interrupting me in the middle of posting recs because they're not what you wanted -_-

Wellp, my TSCOSI cyberpunk AU is officially over 10k ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

It's funny how, with my last chaptered fic for this fandom, passing 7k felt like a huge deal and a lot of work, whereas with this one I can write close to 2,000 words in one day (today) and barely even notice it. I'm having a lot of fun working on this fic ๐Ÿ˜„

Which is good, because I'm still SO far away from finishing xD
