ditko, dormammu vs eternity

*spams you*

New Comics Day spam

Buying HoMA got me a crappy free Marvel plug themselves thingy called "Marvel's Best Selling Authors". It led off on their Stephen King adaptation but very quickly we were at Laurrell K Hamilton and "OMG we got Orson Scott Card to write Iron Man". Fail.

I badly want Cable and Deadpool #50 but last week it had sold out by the time I got to my LCS (and my not-quite-so-L CS had closed down completely in the month since I last went there, which scared me a bit) and they hadn't got any new ones in with this week's comics, which is a bit disappointing. Anyone know where I might find scans?

Random (i.e. largely DW) spam

Oh, my flist is so much more manageable now I'm not watching doctorwho and the big fic comms. Yay! *hugs you all*

Things that are lolarious: Watching crappy music TV and seeing Eric Roberts turn up in an Akon/Eminem video. Oh, TVM Master, you are quite lame really ...

Have just started reading Trading Futures because it's supposed to be good fun it's apparently got good Anji and I need to nail her characterisation so I can have a fourth stalled Martha-slash fic on my hard drive I want to, because I want to (thanks Billie). I get that it's meant to be "what if the Doctor was James Bond?" but so far the whole non-violent action man who uses brains and improvisation to sort things out is giving me more of a MacGyver vibe ...

Meme spam

I don't normally do "tell me about my fic" memes for various reasons, but this one does look like it might have entertaining results if anyone does want to have a go (been all over the place, but last seen with astrogirl2):

The thing is, when people look for stories, they always make it sound like badfic. Now, often that's because it really is badfic, but sometimes it's good and they just suck at describing the story.

So, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to summarize badly any one (or more!) of my stories and I'll try to guess which it is. You could even pretend you don't remember the pairing or fandom to make it harder to guess.

(Almost all my Who fics are at the Teaspoon -- I'm about to belatedly add my not-so-awesome LoM drabbles-of-awesome -- if you wanna refresh your memory, but I think that kind of defeats the point.)

ETA: point-and-laugh link spam

Oh, this is special. (It's the overelaborate rules for a forum for people who like those Twilight books [the chaste Mormon vampire ones] a whole lot, but don't really like the Internet at all. Seen via The Smooter Report.)

ETA2: Ashes to Ashes spam
