A New Layout and General Updating

So I now have a new journal layout which I'm really happy with. It's a grey Sherlock S2 one. 

I have also updated my Master fic list, which needed to be done awhile ago but have been really lazy. So now it has a new title since it's more than just Torchwood and Doctor Who fic. 

That's it really. You can now go back to your normal viewing.

Moon Meme

stolen from aeron_lanart

You were born during a Third Quarter moon

This phase occurs in the middle of the moon's waning phases, after the full moon and before the new moon.

- what it says about you -

You like to make up your own mind. You may find it hard to relate to mainstream opinions on issues, and you definitely don't always like what's popular. You can work out solutions and give birth to big ideas when left to yourself, and other people will be impressed with your conclusions even if they're not sure how you arrived at them.

What phase was the moon at on your birthday? Find out at

2011 in Fic Meme

A rehash of last year's fic meme but for 2011

In 2011 I posted two fanfics. Unsuccessfully anticipated in paperlegends and successfully participated in a porn battle. This was the year that I did the Foundation Course at Flinders University and when Fandom started to become less interesting. Not sure what will happen in 2012 fandom wise but I do want to write more fanfic. Thanks tomisswinterhill for beta-ing one of the fics.


It Starts With Forever and Ends With a Touch - Arthur/Merlin, PG-13, Originally written for a kinkme_merlin prompt.


Frottage Sweetie - Eleven/River Song, R. Originally written for  51stcenturyfox and neifile's Torchwood/Doctor Porn battle VIII

2011 Book Review

This year I have read 23 books. Most of them were re-reads and crime fiction novels. Though my reading streached out across a few genres including humour, fantasy, crime fiction, literary fiction and classic.

This is the list of novels that I have read:

I hope to read a lot more books next year and novels by Terry Pratchett. Recently after seeing the tv adaption of Going Postal have decided to try the Discworld novels again after failing during High school.  Probably now that I'm older I will understand it more, like I did with Douglas Adams.

Comment Word Meme

Comment to this post, and I will list five things I associate with you, They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your LJ (or just add a reply back to me). Other people (including me) can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

From paragraphs

Holidays - Hmm I'm not quite sure about this one. Though in the future will love to go travelling around Europe one day and visit London, Cardiff, Paris, Venice and Berlin.

Music - So so love my music. In the past year I have discovered some excellent artists just by listening to Triple J and through the Triple J unearthed website. Australia has some brilliant talented artists either successful right now or to look out for in 2012. There is also many international artists that I love, mainly from Britain and some parts of Europe. :D

School - This year I did the Flinders University Foundation course and hope to get into University next year. I'm hoping to do a Bachelor of Arts, maybe in politics but not quite sure.

Torchwood - A show I used to watch but don't anymore. I used to write fanfic for this and everything. I'm more a Doctor Who fan and well discovered many shows which are better and not disappointing.

Writing - Writing is what I want to do and well want to write radio comedy. I completed two fanfic this year and participated in Nano this year but didn't get to 50,000 words. Maybe one day when I'm more focused to do it.

Really happy about this one.

You're Merlin!
You're Merlin!
Take What character from "Merlin" are you? today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.

Life hasn't been easy for you, and you sometimes wonder who you can really rely on. You trust your own judgement, but you're not above asking for advice when you think you need it.

You are an original thinker. You love learning new things and are very creative. You are a deep thinker and quite spiritual. You can be slightly eccentric.

You're really not the tidiest person in the world!

You have an excellent sense of humour and people naturally warm to you because of your kindness, your good humour and your sense of fun.
