So.... It's Thursday.        Anyone have a reason why I shouldn't open a chat room, since I am actually online? 

Didn't think so.

Join the mischief.... if you dare.

Sorry I've been MIA in just about every aspect of fandom at the moment. I haven't forgotten about [livejournal.com profile] nine_verse. Things have simply been busy. Not to mention, I jump on any opportunity to get out of the house.

I wrote nearly half a page on Pulled From Orbit yesterday. Seems we are closer to the wedding than I thought. I'm sorry it has taken me so long to sit back down at my keyboard. But when I haven't been writing papers, or taking care of my gran, I've been spending time with A. So, you are welcome to blame my boyfriend for keeping me from writing and chatting. Because it's pretty much true.

In other news. I will be online most of the day if anyone gets bored this friday and wants to chat, or has a question for me. There will be a two hour or so window between 10.30-12.30(ish) CST when I will be leaving work to go to class. My laptop may or may not be on at any point during that time.

It's Saturday. In celebration of surviving another week, I am opening a chat.

Everyone is welcome to join in. True, fanfiction tends to be the main topic of conversation, but almost any other subjects are welcome (such as [livejournal.com profile] bratflorida 's favourite, naked Christopher Eccleston).

Closed for the night. Might open again later.

Choose a name and a colour. Then be sure to click "Join Chat" after you get to the room.

Cake? Y/Y?

I am debating on baking a chocolate cake, because I have a craving. So I first pose this question to my friend list as I ponder on this farther.

[Poll #1676847]

And I also share a brilliant video, because who doesn't love Eddie Izzard.... and Legos?

I am so bored!! If anyone is online, but not signed into messenger.... please sign in and talk to me. PLEASE!!

Because we never really know each other as well as we think, in response to this post I'd like you to ask a question. Anything about which you are curious, anything you feel you ought to know about me. Silly, serious, personal, fannish. Ask away. Then copy this to your own journal, and see what people don't know about you.

I will honestly answer anything, so go ahead and ask whatever you have always wanted to know about me.

ETA: I won't actually hold you to posting this on your own journal, if you don't want to.

ETA2: Hell, I'll even unlock this post and let my lurkers ask me questions if they like.

Where I've been (both the US and the world):


visited 17 states (34%)
Create your own visited map of The United States



visited 6 states (2.66%)

There's quite a lot of blank spaces.  I wonder how long it would take me to fill the map. ;)  
milieva: (Ouran : we're all mad)
Okay, friends. I am working on a project and need some help. I need you to help me think of interview questions. The more random, the better. Something you would want to know about someone, that isn't normally asked. Or just something silly.

Things along these lines:

What celebrity would you risk a restraining order for?

What is the most embarrassing thing in your wardrobe?

If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be?



Do you all have anything to add to this festival of mayhem?
milieva: (DT: Much Ado)
Given the response to my last complaint, I figured LJ could use a community like this one.

Oh, you know they will be great together.
When you first heard that Catherine Tate and David Tennant were teaming up to do a production of Beatrice and Benedick 'Much Ado About Nothing', you were excited, weren't you?

But now that you realize you cannot go, for one reason or another, you are a bit depressed, aren't you?

Join the Club!

Come on over to [info]nomuchadoforme and commiserate with the rest of us who are just a miserable about it as you are.

For those who don't know, my gran was diagnosed with cancer a few weeks ago and had surgery yesterday. I stayed overnight at the hospital with her. We will see what the rest of the week brings, but I am not looking at getting chapter 6 of PFO finished this week.

I start back at Uni on monday. So, we'll see what comes. I've gotten the rest of the week off work, and I have a few scenes written. I know you all understand.

I have had a pretty decent run in this fandom… having fallen in a few weeks before Series 3 aired. I have been writing fic since that Novemeber when all hell broke loose with my idea that became Through the Glass.

Let’s take a look at what fanfictional sins I have committed over the past year.

All sorts of fun questions and answers for your reading pleasure )
milieva: (LOTR : tig)
Anyone else as bored as I am right now? I'm about to start organizing my desk again... Not that it couldn't used some organization, but I want something else to occupy my time.

Anyone want to chat? I'm opening up my random fortnightly chat of doom, if anyone wants to entertain me. (or themselves) ;)

Because I obviously don't need another project, I thought it would be fun to do a Doctor Who Fanfic PDF community. Since many of us have devices that can read PDFs, it would be nice to able to take fics with us like we do our books.

Anyone want to help me out with moderating one?


ETA: And does anyone have any images of any of the Doctors and companions reading? It doesn't have to be the characters themselves... the actors would do. Thanks.
milieva: (DW: Nine and Rose Together)
Would someone please tell me when Nine/Rose became so damn cute? I watched that one scene in the Doctor Dances where the Doctor's trying to resonate concrete again today. Just the way he tries not to smile when they are talking about 'dancing' and then argues that he is 'trying to resonate concrete'... It kills me every time.

I think I need some Nine/Rose feel good fic. Anyone got any suggestions? It will definitely make my morning brighter tomorrow when I wait for the UPS guy to come and take the booth back to Houston.

milieva: (DW: Lessons on Nesting)
Once I get this blasted PWP finished, I will see if I can't get more of the first few chapters down. It is now titled, so I say that means it will be written. I have the first few pages down, and a majority of it plotted.

Yes, I did spend too much time with photoshop today. But I have icons to share here @ [livejournal.com profile] castleinthewood.

I constantly wonder what the story is behind usernames, so I thought I would make a meme. I am sure some of you have wondered about mine at some point.

What is your username? Milieva

Do you use it on any other services (tumblr, fanfiction.net, etc)? Yes. I use this user name in various forms. Fanfiction.net, tumblr, Teaspoon, various forums and variations of it on Yahoo Messenger and Gmail. ETA: and youtube, though my channel's not that interesting.

How long have you used it? Hm… I want to say at least six years now. I can’t remember exactly when I changed it.

Does it mean anything? Beautiful place (see: second paragraph below)

What is the story behind it? I used to go by Mitsuko Hime on fanfiction.net back when fanfiction.net was rather small and my fandom at the time was only about thirty fics large. Then as the site began to grow, everyone was something Hime, so I thought I would change my name to something more unique. I had been working on a semi-original story at the time, and I had come up with a place name, “Milieva or Milievana” and thought that was nice and different.

Milieva was pulled from two words “milieu” and “vanya”. “Milieu” is a setting or place in which something happens and “vanya” means beautiful. So it was in essence to mean “beautiful place”.

I have gone by Milieva for some time on the net now. It has been shortened to Mils as a familiar name, and I have been known to use the nickname in my real life as well. I don’t like people using my given name. I’m strange like that.

Is there a fun fact about your username? Apparently it is a surname, though I am not sure of the origin. Which is funny because I use it as a surname in an original story I have been working on which is a revamp of the old one that this one originated from. It is also almost the given name of Einstein's first wife, Mileva.


♥ Reply to this with a comment of what my username makes you think of.
♥ Post this meme in your journal and I will do the same for you.

I've been spending a bit too much time with my pet project as some of you may have noticed. I have quite a bit in order if we do get enough people onboard with the writing part of it. I honestly hope for five of us. That would at least be something. More would be fabulous.

This evening, I finally did more than stare at part 11 of OOWO. I actually wrote on it. So it has gone from 694 words up to 1563. I think that isn't too bad. Perhaps after Jack and Rose talk, Nine and Rose can have a cuddle and I can end this chapter and finish the other one. The all that is left is the epilogue and I am finished. Whoo! That's been a ride. From two-parter to thirteen. Quite a leap.

Now for bed. I have to actually get up and out on time tomorrow.

[info]nine_verse is planning to begin a virtual series for the Ninth Doctor. They are looking for Writers, editors, historians, organizers, brit pickers, and graphic artists, but definitely writers (this project will not get off the ground without them).

If you would like to participate in one of the above capacities other than that of Writer, please see the staff sign-up. If you wish to participate as a writer, please see the writer sign-up.



I thought this would be an interesting thing to test out. It is definitely a quick and easy way to spread the word. I love the repost button. So, if anyone wants to make use of the new pretty banner I made, feel free to repost this to your journal. Or better yet, repost and spread the word, if you haven't already. I'm sure we could get this off the ground if we got enough people told about it.
