I still don’t feel well and sometimes Fandom is not a nice place to lurk.

If you are on Tumblr, I will follow and you don’t have to follow back since I’m mostly a lurker.

Multifandom: Starships! by [livejournal.com profile] bironic (Gen, PG-13, 3:36)
A celebration of pilots, captains, engineers, crew members, and the spacecraft they love to fly. (And race, and crash, and fix, and play in, and fight in, and...) Everyone who ever loves Space needs to go watch this vid.

One Direction: my mouth moves too fast for you to figure it out by [personal profile] merihn (Liam/Louis, Teen, 3,846 words)
Liam bites back. I love Liam in this one.

periphery by [archiveofourown.org profile] silversparrow (Harry/Louis, Liam/Louis, Teen, 11,713 words)
After a car accident, Louis goes on pretending that nothing ever happened. I love reading a good ghost story especially when I can feel the sense of horror of what is happening to Louis and I love the progression of the flashback to the crash.

Scalene, Isosceles, Equilateral by [archiveofourown.org profile] matchsticks_p (Zayn/Harry/Louis, Explicit, 4,163 words)
No one has ever accused Zayn of being quick on the uptake. I love this, gave me lots of Zayn feels.

William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet: We Found Love by [livejournal.com profile] foomatic (Gen, PG-13, 3:34)
For never was there a tale of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo Gorgeous vid, I completely forgot how beautiful this movie is and Leo is freakin pretty.

I'm too emotional right now and hoping that my period will come soon. Mood swings are no fun and especially if they get you in a fight with your sister. At least I wasn't violent this time.

I don't know what to do with myself I'm all edgy. I didn't sleep at all Wednesday, I rearranged my bedroom, wrote a entry of Star Wars recs, which is longer post than I will actually write, clean my hair and buff my nails. (I'm undecided on painting it right now.) I want to go out, I'm getting cabin fever but I don't really want to go outside. Or really, I should go get some sleep and set up my alarm to wake up tomorrow on time.

I hope that I get to see my friends this Friday. Interact with somebody, cause my sister is in her I don't want to be bother with your conversation moods. I think the internet has taken her brain.

I'm supposed to do my mom resume but I'm having trouble concentrating on it. Right now, this is my life.

May 22nd the Spike channel held a Star Wars marathon. I was on my laptop, when I flipping the channels and the movies took my attention away from the internet for a while. I still enjoy the original Star Wars trilogy and I want the DVDs so I can watch it right now. I still have an epic crush on Luke Skywalker and I see Leia in a new light. I really dig her character and I finally understand Han/Leia. I see the chemistry now; the unresolved sexual tension was thick. (It only took me a few years but at least I got it.)

Star Wars is not the greatest movies in the world or the best piece of science fiction but it has a big place in my heart now. I think I'm a bit too late to join this fandom, even if I try I don't know if I'm able to find my niche.

My brain is reevaluating my thoughts on religion; getting back to organized life is tough. I need order and purpose back in my life.

Janelle Monáe's new album Archandroid is out now.

Random: I think I'm getting better at typing and spotting my common grammar mistakes, not all the time but I'm learning as I continue to blog.

I can't wait for the Update Page Redesign. Dreamwidth seems to get cooler everyday I get on. I can't wait to get pay to turn this account to a paid account, so I can get to add more Star Wars icons. (Most will be the Skywalkers and Leia. :).)

The Shadows Suit Me by Luke1 - Luke/Leia, Han/Leia, Mature. AU. Events take unfortunate turns, and we are left with a Luke with no light left in him living in the underworld of Coruscant. But love, and the past, won't leave him be....

I think I have to warn first that in no way is this fic perfect, it has typos and other issues common to new writers but I was still able to read the whole fic, enjoy it and I want to recommend it. What I like about it is that fact that it in first person, Luke is our narrator and unreliable to boot cause he is a drug addict. The author totally convince me this was Luke Skywalker and not once the author lost the ability to string my emotion along for Luke and his interactions with Leia, Han, and the kids. It felt real, like Luke can become this person. The author writing made be immature but this the author beginning work.
excerpt )

Disconnections by Caryn B - Han/Luke, NC-17. Set several months after Return of the Jedi. Luke is keeping something from Han and it's threatening to destroy their friendship. On the eve of going their separate ways they attempt to breach the growing distance between them. It’s rare to find a Han/Luke story with both of the guys in character, and this fic delivers good characterization. Han and Luke coming together doesn’t feel force, it happens just right and Leia presence is there in the background makes it even better.
excerpt )

Electricity by Lady Ra - Han/Luke, NC-17. Total AU, although it is set in the Star Wars environment: Solo's a cop and he needs some special help to solve a crime. This AU is believable but I have to warn that this fic is self-indulgent in its clichés. Don’t read if you don’t like instant soul mates stories. Since I enjoy clichés, my only complaint is the lack of interaction between Luke & Leia, showing them being real siblings.
excerpt )

In His Father's Shoes by Morgan Dawn - Han/Leia, Han/Luke, NC-17. What would have happened to Luke if Leia had not rescued him from Darth Vader at Cloud City? If Luke had been turned to the Dark Side by the Emperor long before Han was ever rescued? Where and how would Han & Luke meet again? The story offers a dark twist on Luke's relationship to the Force and the people he loves. This fic has a wonderfully written dark!Luke, anger and bitter and Luke is not the only twisted character in this fic. Wonderful imagery and the end brought a tear in my eye.

Listen.. people be asking me all the time, "Yo Mos, what's gettin' ready to happen with Hip-Hop?"

I tell em, "You know what's gonna happen with Hip-Hop? Whatever's happening with us"

If we smoked out, Hip-Hop is gonna be smoked out. If we doing alright, Hip-Hop is gonna be doing alright.

People talk about Hip-Hop like it's some giant livin' in the hillside comin' down to visit the townspeople.

We ARE Hip-Hop. Me, you, everybody, we are Hip-Hop. So Hip-Hop is going where we going.

So the next time you ask yourself where Hip-Hop is going, ask yourself, "Where am I going? How am I doing?"

'Til you get a clear idea. So.. if Hip-Hop is about the people and the Hip-Hop won't get better until the people get better, then how do people get better? Well, from my understanding people get better when they start to understand that, they are valuable...
