proof that even though i no longer write, fandom always eats my brain.



th: BECAUSE I AM MAD FOR THAT MOVIE/FANDOM
me: i watched it
and i loved it
so much
i really did
and um, ok
fair warning?
i TOTALLY BELIEVE he got back to reality

like i know it's meant to be subjective or interpretative or whatthefuckever
BUT I BELIEVE IN MY SOUL
th: it' not even SLASHY, although of course i'll read it, but there's a case for almost all pairings. i like the subtextual or friendshippy or whatever else + sort of dynamimcs
me: that he got his happy ending, ok
oh um
i actually felt that
in retrospect
eames and arthur
felt like exes XD
a little
like if i were to make up a backstory for them
it would be where
they'd worked together before?
and somehow
BY EAMES' AMAZING POWERS
he'd gotten arthur to fool around a little with him
and arthur never forgave him for that
th: YES i can see that
me: and so in the movie
they know each other
but there's a tiny edge of tension
less hidden on arthur's side
and uh, after the movie
there's of course later on massive sex
because
arthur sort of has a crush on ariadne
except that she
is kind of obsessed with cobb
and eames in the meanwhile
is sort of reluctantly pining for arthur
despite the fact that he's such an uptight little bastard
or maybe because?
and he knows that arthur is forever and ever point man because he can't bear, CANNOT BEAR to let people down
th: al;dkjfa;ldfjl;dfjadl;fjdfl;kj
me: to fail them
th: I CAN SEE ALL OF THIS
me: and this is why he's so careful about whom he lets in, because he has to add them to his list of people to protect
even if he doesn't admit he has one
th: THIS IS WHAT I MEAN, I THINK THEY'RE ALL PINING OR HOWEVER ELSE INTERTWINED WITH EACH OTHER
IT'S ALL MESSY AND ROUNDABOUT
me: and eames would be too hard to protect
he's not careful
he's flamboyant
he dreams big

Chrissie: WHY AKI
WHY CAN'T WOW AND LINEAGE 2 HAVE A BABY
me: XDDDD
good game play
meets pretty characters?
Chrissie: YES PLEASE
me: GAMESLASH
wow, the popular fratboy with his universal appeal
and slightly scruffy looks
meets the frigid, art student L2
Chrissie: ahahahaHAHAAHA
oh my god
write this, write this
Sent at 4:33 AM on Tuesday
me: i never PLAYED l2 XD
but it would be funny, no?
Chrissie: definitely XD
me: L2 thinks WoW is a jerk, dumbed down for the masses, has no taste
WoW thinks L2 is a stuckup snob who wears too much black (but is oh so pretty)
Sent at 4:38 AM on Tuesday
Chrissie: not just black, but clothes that are THE OPPOSITE OF SENSIBLE
watching this chick fight in 10-inch heels
and the dark elf males -- in full plate, mind you -- left their THIGHS AND BUTTOCKS BARE so that you could SEE THEIR THONGS
gah, the crazy art design
and oh, L2 is one of those really diligent students
spends a lot of time practicing! nose stuck in books! listens intently in classes!
while wow just parties all day but gets good grades anyway
Sent at 4:42 AM on Tuesday
Chrissie's new status message - i miss L2 :( 4:44 AM
me: also
L2
is really fucking gay
like
so very gay
that normally guys like WoW
beat him up?
and you know
made him so miserably in high school
that in revenge he became EVEN GAYER
and he's not even a queen
because he's too quiet for that
but he's just like
very obviously not interested in vaginas XD
L2 WEARS EYELINER, BUT LOOKS GOOD IN IT
L2 is what WoW's friends would generally refer to as an emo-fag, and they would be HALF RIGHT
L2 hates WoW for a lot of things
but...
what L2 hates WoW for most
is that...secretly
deep
deep
down
underneath the unreasonable clothing
and the artistic ambitious
L2 wishes that he had been a little bit more like WoW
and barring that
that WoW would totally sleep with him
(he thinks in a twisted way that this would help him get WoW out of his system)
(but actually it totally wouldn't, because WoW would be kind of good in bed, and thus make everything even worse.)
WoW listens to like
top 40s
BUT
has a secretly geeky collection of DVDs
that L2 doesn't find out about until much later
and WoW is belligerently not ashamed of them
"What? Monty Python is a fuckin' classic."
"hitchhiker's guide?"
"also classic."
Chrissie: <3
wow's the guy you just can't hate
me: yes
Chrissie: the guy you just can't LEAVE
me: even though you TRY TO
because he has enough innate virtue
Chrissie: yessss
me: that you keep on coming back
even though he compromises
EVERYTHING you think you believe in
also
he dresses TERRIBLY
Chrissie: it shames you a bit to be seen with him in public
me: though
Chrissie: sometimes you try very hard to just not look at him
me: not as much as you think it shames him
(even though actually, it doesn't really)
Chrissie: XDDD
me: sometime, afterwards, when you're lying in bed together and just being quiet
in a way you didn't think would be possible with someone who talked as much as WoW
he asks you why you wear so much black
and you tell him it's because no one ever understood you
and it sounds horribly stupid even to you
and then he says, "well i don't really understand you either" and you squeeze your eyes shut
and then he adds, "but i think you look fucking hot in black, so."
you have fights.
you fight over pets
because WoW thinks pets are supposed to be like normal things, like DOGS
and you have a snake you talk to
and a fish tank
that is empty.
it represents the sum total of all the fish you could have kept and may keep still, you tell him with your best ironical look.
it's a fucking empty fishtank and you're just too lazy to throw it out, he counters.
WoW has never read poetry in his ENTIRE LIFE.
not even e.e.cummings.
not even SHEL SILVERSTEIN.
you read him something by neruda and he says that is sounds incredibly gay.
you point out that this is not really a valid statement, given that you just finished blowing him, and he explains, "well, yeah, it sounds like something you'd like to say."
and you can't decide whether or not to be utterly enraged or bizarrely flattered.
Chrissie: XDDDDDDD
me: you weigh about 125 pounds, soaking wet.
WoW goes to the gym.
XD
Chrissie: gah, he totally does
he thinks the epitome of male beauty is like
those wrestling guys
me: WoW is secretly really ashamed of the fact
that one of his girlfriends once said he had pretty eyes.
Chrissie: (i was going to say arnold schwarzenegger in terminator, but i think he was actually built quite nicely then)
me: WoW drinks beer. you pretend to like wine. secretly you actually have a thing for really cheap vodka.
Sent at 5:01 AM on Tuesday
me: things are occasionally strained because you are actually sometimes embarrassed by how attracted you are to him, and whereas WoW swaggers like a pimp outside he's actually somewhat conservative in his tastes.
whereas you would light up like a christmas tree if he mentioned sex toys.
Sent at 5:03 AM on Tuesday
me: deep deep down inside
WoW and L2 are afraid that they will break each other
that they are too incompatible
but day to day sometimes they forget this
because as it turns out
Chrissie's new status message - this needs to end in mpreg 5:05 AM
me: they are frustrated by the same thing--how fundamentally stupid other people can be
AND THEN THEY GET DRUNK AND FORGET TO USE PROTECTION AND THEN BOOM
RAGNAROK EMPIRES IS BORN
Chrissie: XDDDDDDDDDD
me: chrissie
do you think thien is right
and we are kind of crazy.
Chrissie: no
i think she is kind of crazy! we are eminently sane
the world can only be improved by the love child of wow and l2
Sent at 5:07 AM on Tuesday
Chrissie: aki, i am SO SERIOUS >_> i would buy that game in a heartbeat
me: oh, not only you
prolly most female gamers
and the male ones would follow them XD
and i would have to buy a laptop with, you know, an ACTUAL GRAPHICS CARD
Chrissie: don't worry, by the time that game comes out i'm sure we'll both be staid middle-aged women with nice fat bank accounts
me: ....we'll be middle-aged and staid maybe
THE BANK ACCOUNTS
ARE WISHFUL THINKING ON MY PART
Chrissie: xDDD
me: omg seriously
NEW OTP
WoW/L2 forever
Chrissie: yes!!!
me: WoW is totally the seme
btw
he can't help himself XD
Chrissie: oh, yeah

me: like
they try once
because L2 gets snotty about it
and then at the very last minute
WoW is just like omfg i can't do this.
and flips them over and then they both feel totally relieved XD
Chrissie: XDDDD



chatficcing is so much fun. i could never give it up, no matter HOW dry the creative wellsprings ran. it is all the joy of creation without any of the tedium of composition, and best of all, it is like giggling under the sleeping bag with your best friend.

T_T pedestrian_zone-tachi, i miss you! CHRISSIE NEVER LEAVE ME, NOT EVER.

That creepy thumping sound you hear from far far away is me kowtowing in submission to this LJ post







forever
OMG. I BOW BEFORE YOUR SUPERIOR INTELLECT/TALENT/EVERYTHING.

btw, i read your reaction on the movie? and i have to say...ok, the ARTISTIC side of me agrees. the ending was a bit of a cop-out, if your goal was to really leave the audience in suspense; the top wobbles a bit too much, if you know what i mean.

but...but...GODDAMNIT SOMETIMES I JUST WANT CLOSURE. XDD i mean, it actually REALLY did bother me, how incredibly fucking selfish cobb was being about all this, and i kind of wish there'd been a better REASON for how incredibly, fiercely loyal they all were to him. like, leo's a good tortured actor, but i almost wanted cobb to have some kind of insane charisma that would explain their all falling in line like that. i suppose it could have been the idea of doing the impossible, and i did like how eames at the very end seemed actually really invested in seeing whether or not fischer got his catharsis, but there should have been MORE.

still..honestly, the larger part of me does not give a damn XD i don't want mindfuckery, I WANT MY HAPPI ENDO at this point ^^;;;; it's still a great movie, and i think although some of the action seemed to drag, it was a film that was both smart and accessible, so i can't really complain? also...jesus fucking christ that kid grew up good. YOU KNOW WHO I MEAN. chrissie thinks he is unattractive, and all i can say is DDD: WHAT PART OF HIM. because, you know, i would totally tap that.
chrissie thinks what

I am writing her an email RIGHT NOW

Also dude I spent the last half hour of Inception with my eyes shut (the camerawork made me sick after an hour), only opening them when my movie companion informed me "Arthur and/or Eames is onscreen", and am currently in love with a show/game about fabulous, gay samurais. Not exactly hallmarks of great taste or keen wit!

I did watch it with another consultant and we both agreed it was pretty engaging despite the flaws, but Cobb just didn't work for us, especially not to the point where he took over the movie and none of the other characters mattered. I guess he reminded us both of the worst type of project manager you could ever hope to work for - delusional, egoistic, selfish and manipulative. Which makes for an interesting character but not team leader! (Also a terribly fake-earnest parent, it was painful to watch him on the phone talking to 'his kids')

Yea lol basically if you cut the movie in two pieces (beginning--->rescuing saito) and (waking up in the plan--->end), the first bit was mostly ACTION THRILLER / UNCOVER MY MYSTERIOUS PAST, and there was so much of it that though I understood the second bit was going to be the 'mindfuck' bit, it was just too brief and too insubstantial to feel satisfying.

(OTOH I laughed like hell at small things, like when Fischer had to fill out an immigration form because he is ~Australian~ what hilarious attention to detail)
Ah, by the two-parts thing I mean, I too wanted a happi endo after the tedious action thriller bit; thus was very annoyed to be forced to think instead xD;
oh, also, someone linked me to an article that posited more strongly that the entire movie was meant to be a dream?

http://chud.com/articles/articles/24477/1/NEVER-WAKE-UP-THE-MEANING-AND-SECRET-OF-INCEPTION/Page1.html

i kind of feel like the authors meant for it to be open to interpretation, but personally i prefer it more as a story with closure, even if i don't know why we were meant to like cobb or think that he deserves any XD

I would just like to note that I have only ever seen wassisface in two roles: first as the kid from 3rd Rock, then in Mysterious Skin, where he reminded me in equal parts of Josh Hartnett and the kid from 3rd Rock (did not know that it WAS him!)

I am perfectly prepared to accept that he has heated up some since then. *g*
<_< tongari, if you actually sent it, can i have a copy of the email you sent chrissie? :koff:
XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD no, brilliance is making spock you know, son of a COMMUNE LEADER.

and i'm not writing it because that was basically the entire story XD AND THEN THEY GET PREGGERS AND HAVE A GAMEKID that is like the alpha and omega of MMORPGs and EVERYONE i like plays it forever, amen.
NEITHER HAVE I. but i have seen screenshots, and JESUS THE THONGS. chrissie is so not kidding. XD would LOVE to meet their design team :rolls:
omg.

>D

yessssssssss
I HAVE ALREADY STARTED MY CAMPAIGN. :DDD

IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME.
preaching. to. the choir. i only don't write for this movie because it is smart and i am dumb, and don't have the necessary pop cultural references. besides, i just know already that there is going to be goodfic for this? like, so not worried about running out of things to read, which is usually when i start writing. XD
I SUBSCRIBE TO ALL OF YOUR ARTHUR/EAMES-RELATED IDEAS AND BELIEVE YOU SHOULD WRITE FIC. And also re:wow/l2, though I do not and have never played MMO's, I would totally ship it.
WoW/L2 hits so many of my buttons it's crazy. XD i begin to wish there were a manga for them.

askjf;alkj re:fic, SEE ABOVE. this fandom will be inundated by inspiration, it does not need my pitiful crumbs of conceit.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE WRITE FOR INCEPTION AKI. I CAN ALREADY SEE THE EAMES/ARTHUR/ARIADNE (could do without cobb but if you must throw him in there, ok) I NEED THIS FIC PLEASE
cherry-chan, you realize that that story is already being written, probably HAS already been written, at least three times, and better in each incarnation than i could ever dream of it? XDD the answers are all on delicious, dear.

also, it's impossible to write ariadne without cobb, because as tongari said, THEY WROTE HIM INTO HER. i was a bit annoyed too, but i did feel that she as an actress carried her role well, just that maybe there wasn't enough time for all the exposition she deserved.

i guess i can understand WHY the movie is so cobb-centric? it makes more linear a movie that otherwise could've gone all over the place, and as critics have observed, for all the creativeness of the idea, it follows a fairly standard formula.

that really doesn't stop me from enjoying it, though? and as for extra exposition, well, that's what fandom's for.
I CAN NO LONGER READ OR THINK ABOUT EAMES/ARTHUR WITHOUT ARIADNE

I BLAME YOU

I ALSO WANT TO ADD ROBERT IN EVERYTHING, JUST TAGGING ALONG GOING O HAI GUYS BUT THAT... I THINK... IS AJA'S FAULT
I LOVE ROBERT, HE IS WELCOME ANYWHERE *_*
SECONDED.

ILH SO MUCH, HE'S SO RIDICULOUS. I ENVISION THE CREW REACHING FOR HIS HAND TO TUG HIM ALONG BEHIND THEM IN ANY AND ALL SCENARIOS. HE JUST BUMBLES ALONG SO BEAUTIFULLY. :')
he does seem too pretty NOT to be on the team XD

HI TERRIBLE TWOSOME TENNIS TWINS. I SEE YOU.
>>because arthur sort of has a crush on ariadne
except that she is kind of obsessed with cobb
and eames in the meanwhile is sort of reluctantly pining for arthur

THIS. (Although I prefer to think that Ariadne is obsessed with Cobb, but not attracted to him:))
REKEN I WROTE THIS FIC. GO CHECK OUT MANY BITS OF GENIUS (none mine) at the drabble_x comm!

[fic] MMOslash. wednesday night. world of warcraft/lineage 2

User sesame_seed referenced to your post from [fic] MMOslash. wednesday night. world of warcraft/lineage 2 saying: [...] tes the characters beautifully, making them real enough to fic for. Background: An idea is born [...]

Re: [fic] MMOslash. wednesday night. world of warcraft/lineage 2

if edison had a friend who one day was like "gosh, wouldn't it be great if we had something better than gas lamps?" and then edison went "hmmm" and invented the lightbulb. then people came up to the friend and said, "wow, what a stunning idea of yours!"

NO NO NO THE CREDIT GOES TO EDISON/CHRISSIE/TONGARI, not me XD i mean, i will happily savor the charm of their creation, but i was no more responsible for it than Blizzard XD we are just lucky in our genius friends <3 :preens:

Re: [fic] MMOslash. wednesday night. world of warcraft/lineage 2
