The Intro

reg_flint: Star Wars (count dooku)
Access? Just add me, and I'll add you unless I have a very good reason not to. 😜 So! Here are fanfics, blog entries, rants, memes, a great deal of snark, a poem or two and a love of scifi, fantasy, literature and science. I mostly write Harry Potter (I'm Slytherin) and especially pick-Snape's-brains fanfic. Sorry if I write next to no ships generally. Writing to me is critical analysis most find tedious. Character development and thought processes are my boring (exciting) speciality.
Disclaimer: The Harry Potter fanfics on this journal -- the characters and setting belong to JK Rowling, the writings are amateur, and are for fan use only. A handful are 18+ years restricted. Read the warnings. :-)
Star Wars content is Lucasfilm's and Disney's, not mine. I'm playing in that fandom, not earning anything for writing it.

1. What size is your bed?
I have a futon in order to not have people staring at my bed/desk/food table.

2. How many pillows do you sleep with?
Two squashed, rather flat.

3. Do you have a weighted blanket? If so, does it help you?
No use. A torturous crisis of conscience keeps me awake.

4. Do you sleep with any stuffed animals?
hahahaha -sneer- NO. I want a dog or cat to fill that void.

5.Do you have to have the TV on to go to sleep?
NO TV, no cable, but I have my laptop hooked to a screen with an HDMI to HDMI cable.
reg_flint: wtf do I like him for/ life = chess (Just Do It Darth Sidious.)
Day 15

Talk about why you participated in Snowflake &/or what you got out of it. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

The goal through all these posts was to encourage me to participate in fandoms other than Harry Potter and Star Wars. I have yet to fully surround myself with the Star Wars fandom. I'll just list my top 5 characters in Star Wars fandom and Harry Potter.

Star Wars Fandom
Palpatine/Lord Sidious
Count Dooku
Darth Vader

Day 13

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

1. Write about Sheev Palpatine enough to track his thoughts and learn precaution with my dark side.
2. Watch more Star Wars though they are almost over. With Aleysia Snape. Fun to watch with her as we both like villains mostly.
3. Start writing my musical rants, I mean, poetry, again.
4. Learn to play the clarinet (pipe dream)
5. Downsized already but need to do it again. So much that is pointless hangs out. I don't mind the top shelf of the 4th bookcase as it is covered in things Harry Potter.
6. I want Dooku fic and I want it now so I had better start writing
7. Hope that cold logic isn't my permanent status. I would like to NOT thank all the scientists and engineers in the family. It's great, yet depressing.

Day 12

In your own space, create your own challenge. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Write an OC that works with Snape, Walt or Gandalf. I would accept Katniss or Darth Sidious(Sheev Palpatine.) So many fandoms, so few brain cells. But I do not mix these fandoms together easily, it's been ages and I don't miss it.
reg_flint: mine (Q snark)
Day 11

In your own space, talk about your creative process(es) — anything from the initial inspiration to how you feel after something’s done. Do you struggle with motivation or is it a smooth process? Do you have any tricks up your sleeve to pull out when a fanwork isn’t cooperating? What is your level of planning to pantsing/winging it? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I'm forced to write, but in periods of illness/depression, the plot goblins retreat. When they aren't attacking me with goblin made weaponry and holding my ideas hostage, I have to do the gross thing: act like I have literary diarrhea and rub the dirt in goblin faces. I write a disjointed story. If it returns full measure it's back or it's not coming at all. Motivation and planning are no problem. I have solid work mixed with sudden spikes of energy. Coffee helps. Inspiration is something that I plan. I make a list of 100 prompts. I write a drabble using 2 prompts. If it works, I develop it. It writes the character in a way, not as I would have it, but the person or dog or tree I'm writing about- they have the true control.

A LiveJournal comm that I sneak at reading, not liking LJ but loving all manner of Severus Snape. 30 fics with ages from 0-10, 10-20, 20-30 30-40, 40+ and there's quite a lot of cool art if you'd like to take a glance. OpenID works.

I've written 4 fics other years. My Snape is unnerving hahahahahahahaha. He's like me, he can stare right through people with a half-formed scowl.

Day 10

Create a fanwork. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Author: [personal profile] reg_flint
Title: Watch Me Die
Characters: Walter White, Jesse Pinkman, Jane Margolis.
Rating: R unbetaed
Word Count: 268 (time constraint)
Warnings drug use and other drug references, dark, non main character death, psychological warfare in the head.

The idea to just observe Jane presented itself quite logically in Walt's mind, the same as usual. His pain was leavened by the thought that he was avoiding a huge disaster for Jesse. The girl was a worm, catching Jesse's fish.

He'd never seen full-fledged heroin overdose but he knew if she was put in the recovery position, on her side, resisting death, Jane Margolis would live. It was fascinating how her vomit was killing her, her mouth open as she choked. She was not going to change, he knew an addict's shortcomings. He'd watched others. It was a choice.

Be a free man, work with the soon to be liberated addict Jesse. Now he was watching Jesse. Walt closed his eyes. Chemistry is about bonds. Then there was the relationship version. In science, there is a possible reason for everything. She could not live. Jane had ruined so much without being any the wiser. Her mouth shuddered and she hacked and swallowed and choked again. That shudder, he had it too, his distaste for being forced to make an impossible choice.

Was it sensible? No, but he had to damn his senses and just think. His "nephew" was just starting to get a new skill set. Jesse looked so innocently blissed out. What if Jesse started to choke too? Could Walt save one and not the other? But he didn't have a choice now. Jane made a hitching sound and then became quite still, the vomit still on her lips.

The invisible barrier that was his decency fell like chain mail to the ground. A free man, doing what works.

Day 9 – Commit an act of kindness.

So I did.
Maybe it's really sabotage.
I gave a street person an entire deck of smokes.
Dealt with the immediate need, anyway.

Day 6

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

1. Fic for the building of the Death Star I. Krennic POV and Lord Vader having an argument about Galen and the looming and frightening backdrop of Darth Sidious' mere existence.
Fandom: Star Wars

2. Walter White's hat, henceforth called Heisenberg's hat.
Fandom: Breaking Bad

3. Lucius Malfoy's wand/walking stick (I know it is often called a pimp cane, but not in my case.)
Fandom: Harry Potter (A piece of Slytherin history.) I'd also enjoy a drabble about Lucius getting his wand from Ollivander age 11.
reg_flint: -- (Saruman)
Day 5

In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

The INTJ main page on FB
darkarts_ldws and darkarts_drabs. They were my own comms on LJ.
YouTube. Endless piles of nonsense to bury me in. My twitter is nothing but science articles.
reg_flint: LJ nettlebrew (director krennic)
Day 4

Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them.

Done. I made a friend on FB. A writer of humour and wit and their routine for comedy. MST too. They can do Muggle magic tricks.
reg_flint: mine (Breaking  Bad)
Day 3

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Breaking Bad, pilot for Season 1.
The intensity and realities of that world are something very close to me. It sets me on edge. GOOD.

The Imperial March for Star Wars by John Williams is a loooong standing love.
reg_flint: LJ nettlebrew (death eaters)
Day 1

In your own space, talk about your Happy Place—the things that give you joy, calms you or keeps you sane. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Happy - when I have a load of plot goblins and they all come together. Petting awesome dogs. Coffee. Anxiety is part of a positive thing to me. I can write bleeding angst from hell when awkward and Nietzsche's running me with an obvious style. Fandoms help.

Dear Reg Flint, the Inveterate Snarker, On 2017-04-16 at 01:43:32 your journal was deleted.

Livejournal gone bye bye. Not sorry.
reg_flint: LJ nettlebrew (FF: Captain Speaking)
The much hated friends feed which will completely render the styling for the friends pages I do obsolete and mean they are just like places like Facebook which do not let you design your own corner of the world.

Go to LJ Releases new update to complain in a respectable and civil manner please.

I also recommend just not using it. Don't switch if you don't have to. I have mine as the older version and refuse to switch. I'm going to just deal with the little bar telling me I'm using the old version until I'm forced. I feel like if we continuing using the old friends feed and ignore the changes maybe they'll take a hint (probably not but worth a try).
