I'm taking a break with my 100 things challenge because right now I am honestly an emotional wreck after watching Glee. I know this is going to sound incredibly corny and maybe some of you will laugh at me for this, but that show was my life for nearly three years. And now it's over (well. kind of over) and I'm at a bit of a loss. I felt the same way after the last Harry Potter movie came out.

I know that Glee isn't perfect; there are a lot of problems with the show and the writing, especially in this last season. But I can't help but see past all that, see the show that I first loved. I still love all the characters and I don't care if you think they're crappy or unrealistic or acting stupidly or horribly or whatever. This show is special to me.

I am literally sobbing right now. The last episode was beautiful and the perfect goodbye to all the characters we love. I can't wait to see where they take the show next... All I know is that it's not going to be the same.

Please excuse me while I go and drown myself in fanfiction where the Glee kids stay together forever and everyone has a happy ending and it's all perfect and sunshine.

If you watch Glee and want to talk about the last episode or cry with me, well, my inbox is always open ♥

First of all, let me just get this out of the way:.....


I AM GOING TO SEE THE BLACK KEYS IN OCTOBER MY DAD IS BUYING ME TICKETS FOR MY BIRTHDAY WHICH IS ALSO IN OCTOBER I AM GOING WITH MY BEST FRIEND IN THE WHOLE WORLD (EMMA) TO SEE MY FAVOURITE BAND IN THE WHOLE WORLD (THE AFOREMENTIONED BLACK KEYS). I AM CRYING TEARS OF JOY RIGHT NOW NO JOKE.

Anyway, so tickets when on sale last week but there are still tickets left so I'm going to hopefully get them tomorrow. I am so happy right now. I've loved the Black Keys since I was in year 12, and according to last.fm, I first scrobbled one of their songs (So He Won't Break, apparently) on the 14th of October 2008. It's been a whirlwind romance ever since. In celebration of the fact that I am actually going to be in the same place as Dan and Patrick in October, here are some of my favourite Black Keys songs. If you haven't heard of them before / never really got them, I implore you to give them a chance. They are amazing. They're tight as hell, every single song is amazingly raw and awesome and [insert other awesome sounding adjective here]. They're this perfect combination of garage rock and blues and they're the best. These comments on youtube describes them better than I ever could:





Here they are live, being flawless and amazing as always:



LISTEN TO THESE SONGS. THEY WILL BLOW YOUR MIND. )

Harry Potter babble ahead (and how I missed it so!)

So for like, ages, I've seen Lily Evans and James Potter in my head as Kate Nash and Darren Criss. I made posts about them. I posted fanmixes with them on the covers. And then tumblr came along and ruined it all.

Who is Andrew Garfield? I had no idea up until a week ago when I watched The Social Network for the first time and had a "who-is-this-gorgeous-man-and-why-haven't-I-heard-of-him-before" moment. So now Andrew Garfield is James Potter Okay. Cool. But then you go on tumblr and it's all KAREN GILLAN and I know a couple of people on my f-list were all about her being Lily but I was so stubborn and now all I see is KAREN AND ANDREW OH GOD THEY'RE PERFECT, mostly because of things like this.

So yeah. I've been converted.

And also one day I'm going to post my epic long list of lilyxjames fanfiction. One day.

oh_deanna: (mine // nightmares forever)
Okay. So. Tonight, my best friend Bradley and my mother and I went and saw Paranormal Activity 3. Pants were shat, there was lots of shrieking and screaming and clutching of the best friends hand. But instead of my 'review', or whatever, I thought I'd just some of the stuff the three of us came out with while watching the movie, because OMG I can't stop laughing thinking about it.


Mum: I'm having a heart attack! Deanna, I think I'm having a heart attack! 

Bradley: Okay, if I were him, I'd leave them all and become a nun.
Me: What?!
Bradley: I'd go to a nunnery.
Me: You mean a monastery. To become a monk.
Bradley: No. I mean a nunnery, to become a nun. No one would ever think to look for me there.

Mum: What's this movie called again? Phenomenal Activity?

(at this point, we were facing each other, not the screen, and we were cowered down in our seats with both of our arms up in front of us)
Me: I can't look anymore. No. No more.
Bradley: I don't want to look. I'm done.
Me: Well one of us has to look!
Bradley: Not me, I looked last time!
Me: I'm not looking.
Bradley: Okay, we'll look together.

Bradley: No. No. I'm not having fun anymore. Deanna, take me home. I want to go home.

Me: He's hot!
Bradley: I don't care if he's hot, right now he deserves to die.


And to sum it all up:

Guy sitting behind us: This is fucked. This is a fucked up movie. Everyone's fucked. Fuck this.


It was so good. So good. Definitely go see it if you haven't already!

Icon meme, yayayayay

1. Reply to this post with "UNICORNS", and I will pick five of your icons.

2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.

3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.

4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

(icons chosen by the lovely[livejournal.com profile] askita)


1. (made by [livejournal.com profile] theidolhands)
So here's the thing. I seem to attract stupid men. I also seem to be related to a lot of stupid men. This icon comes in handy more times then you would believe. I remember adding it to my collection when I decided I wasn't going to stress about shaving anymore. I was feeling strong and independent and proud to be a woman. And this icon was PERFECT for expressing that feeling.


2. (made by [livejournal.com profile] x_istheshape)
Okay, confession: I am a hardcore Puckleberry shipper. There. I said it. So this episode (the Superbowl one), where they sung a song together was like... UGH. Heaven. This is my "fight" icon. The one I use when people say something really friggin stupid. See, look at them. They are both being held back by other people. EVEN LITTLE TINY RACHEL. SHE IS A SPITFIRE. SO DON'T MESS WITH THEM, M'KAY?


3. (made by [livejournal.com profile] thewaltzingdead)
I only watch True Blood for Eric. Pretty much. And I love that he's always like "IS MY HAIR OKAY. WHAT IS ON MY FACE OH GOD GET IT OFF." It cracks me up to no end. So when I saw this icon, it reminded me of that scene... in the second season, you know the scene... when he rips apart that guy and then he turns to Lafayette and is like "Is there blood in my hair?" Because he's getting his highlights done and lolololol I love him so much.


4. (made by [livejournal.com profile] inthe_redshirt)
Anyone who has not read Growing Up Cullen needs to go here right now and read it. Do it. Especially if you're NOT a fan of Twilight. You won't regret it. It is the most hilarious... the most AWESOME Twilight parody thing ever. EVER. It basically stemmed from a conversation to people were having about what REALLY goes on at the Cullen house. And somehow Edward turned into a prissy housewife with really ~delicate sensibilities. This icon is an Edward quote. It's one of those things that I go back to read again and again and again. AWESOME.


5. (made by [livejournal.com profile] magicalgifs)
You know how everyone has a favourite Disney princess? (Don't lie, you totally have a favourite!) Well, mine is Snow White. Yes, the perpetual housewife who sings to birds and makes pies and is stupid enough to eat something given to her by a creepy old lady who is soooooooo obviously PURE EVIL. Like seriously, why did you do it Snow White? I don't understand. Anyway, yes. I love her. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that it was one of the first movies I remember watching. As in ever remember watching. And apparently, I was obsessed with it. I knew all the words to the songs (lol who am I kidding, I still know all the words to the songs), and I would get all happy when her prince came, and the evil witch used to make me cry and I just loved it. So when I stumbled across this icon set, and saw this icon, a gif of that scene where she first wakes up, all fluttery eyes and rosy cheeks.... I just had to have it. And my love for Snow White compelled me to make it my default. So there :P



Babble babble blah. So much fun! I love doing these things. Comment comment comment comment!

oh_deanna: (growing up cullen // omg so crude)
And after having a grand old time singing along to Nicki Minaj (using my crutches as microphones), we started talking about Twilight fanfiction (specifically, why a certain Big Bang had so many Carlisle/Edward pairings) and Emma decided that we needed to write a Twilight fanfiction of our own. Here are her suggestions:

"Okay. So there's Jasper and Rosalie and Emmett. And there's a love triangle. And Jasper and Rosalie are together. AND THEN EMMETT KILLS THEM."


"OR. Rosalie and Jacob are having like. hate-sex, and Rosalie's really into him,  but he's a little in love with Bella still. And Bella and Edward are together. AND THEN ROSALIE KILLS THEM."


She's got a bit of a one-track mind, as you can see :P She seems pretty keen, so keep your eyes out for "EMMETT/ROSALIE KILLS THEM!" the hot new Twilight fanfic!
oh_deanna: (pushing daisies // can't look!)



Okay, just because I'm bored, and also super curious - what are your phobias? What freaks you out more than anything?
I thought I'd share mine first, because honestly some of them are freakin' bizarre:

Birds - I think this is reasonable. I'm fairly certain that they're proof of the devil. I can't even look at drawings of them.
Falling - I could be on a stepladder a foot on the ground and become convinced that I'm going to lose my balance and fall. For this reason, I avoid really steep hills, stairs I'm not used to, and escalators.
Cockroaches - I felt sick just typing that. Ugh.
Mannequins - My Ma has one in her room that she has DRESSED UP. Like it has a fucking dress and a hat and scarves and shit. *shivers*
Having super dry hands - If I touch certain types of material with dry hands... I lose my shit
Wearing turtlenecks or having anything wrapped too tightly around my neck - I seriously feel like I'm going to die.
Milk - I don't even know with this one. I just can't. I can't even think about it. I'm okay if it's mixed in with food, like pasta or mashed potatoes, as long as I don't see it being made. When I bake cakes and need to use milk, I get someone else to pour it for me.

So. What about everyone else?
oh_deanna: (glee // cheesus saves)
So those of you who know me are well aware that I am a big horror buff. Like, super-intense-live-for-the-genre-my-dreams-are-all-horror-based kind of buff. And one of my favourite things to do is combine my favourite genre and my favourite fandoms and smooosh them together to create

HORROR FANFICTION.

Harry Potter is sadly lacking in this, but GLEE. Oh my Gaga, the Glee fandom rocks at writing horror/apocalypse/paranormal/thriller fic. And I love them for it. I'm signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] klainebigbang, and reading through the prompt/plot post makes me super happy, because I can already see that a couple of people have got horror-related plots.

It's funny isn't it? For a show that advertises itself as a musical-comedy, the amount of dark!fanfiction is astounding. And totally awesome.

I'm going to have to make a rec-list for fics like this - the [livejournal.com profile] glee_angst_meme will be a great place to start.

Also, just want to pimp out - the big bang for glee crossover fic! I'm the only person signed up as an artist so far :( 

WE NEED MORE ARTISTS!

I seriously wanted to hit Finn during this damn episode
I love the Lauren + Puck thing, and I love that she doesn't take any shit from him
Though I wasn't impressed with Rachel's slut shaming of Santana, I'm glad that someone at least tried to give her a reality check
Quinn and Finn - what the hell are you doing?! So not impressed...
I am totally in love with the idea of a Mercedes+Kurt+Rachel friendship ♥
Blaine has FLAWS OH THANK CHEESUS
I felt so embarassed for him OMG HE GOT REJECTED POOR BB
Though I do love that Kurt + Blaine are taking things slow and working on their friendship
Loved the music this episode, especially PYT and Fat Bottomed Girls
I loved Rachel in this epsiode - especially when she realised that she needs to be her own woman for awhile
