gahh that was supposed to be a heart. meh. well, I only have ‘poison and wine’ and ‘c’est la mort’ - what other songs would you recommend?
I have the whole album, and I can definitely say that I recommend all of the songs on there. As I’ve said, I’ve Got This Friend is wonderful - very sweet and tender and touching, and quite catchy as well. Barton Hollow is the song that introduced me to them and it’s fabulous, and Dance Me To The End Of Love has been growing on me a lot recently. Basically, if you can I would say get the whole album because it’s definitely worth it.
How can anybody wank over Cabin Pressure? That’s like wanking over, I dunno, The Peanuts or something.
I don’t get it AT ALL. Honestly one of the things I love most about Cabin Pressure and the fandom is that even though we all may love different things, we can all agree that the show is brilliant in every way. And yet recently someone, or multiple people, have been starting shit over others being fans of Martin, or trying to shame writers for writing about him or Cabinlock, and fights are starting from there.
NONE OF THAT, SERIOUSLY. Cabin Pressure is my happy place, where I go to get away from my personal problems, from whatever fandom/internet bullshit is happening, everything. We are the ONE fandom that doesn’t fight, doesn’t have shipping wars, and doesn’t do any of the bullshit that other fandoms indulge in ALL THE TIME.
So do not, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT start fights over someone’s character preference or what someone likes to write about. Because that is NOT COOL. Just because Martin might be my favorite character doesn’t mean I’m “looking for a woobie” or that what I write is “boring” because it’s nothing more than stupid Martin whump. That’s demeaning, that’s insulting, and it is the kind of shaming that does nothing but make people unwilling to participate in fandom. So DON’T.
Hello! Love your blog and... 15. Are there any plot ideas you want to either do or see someone else do?
Oh thank you dear! You’re too sweet :D
HOO BOY. I feel like I have a million plot ideas bouncing around my head at any moment with questionable ability and time to go through with them. For example right now I have…five Word documents with in progress stories open right now in various stages of completion and non-completion. One is a sequel, one is a gift, one is a long-term story…yeah. I have lots of ideas. And I just got hit with another one for a Martin/Molly story.
UHFSAZJKGASDZ “I’ve Got This Friend” is PERFECT for Martin/Molly jhefdbjfbhxm. Ugh. And The Civil Wars are pretty much perfection in the first place.
ISN’T IT PERFECT?! It makes me dissolve into a happy, fluffy, yet somehow slightly angsty puddle every single time I listen to it. Because I can JUST see those two idiots dancing around each other like that, so obviously in love with each other and the idea of meeting the one person they’ve been missing and yet far too afraid to do anything about it. UGH THEY JUST GIVE ME FEELINGS.
And yes, The Civil Wars are perfection. Absolute perfection.
Ooo, this is a difficult one. I enjoy very well written crossovers that incorporate fantastic elements, like the Sherlock and His Dark Materials crossovers I’ve seen out there. I also enjoy wingfic a lot, and the one time I tried writing it was a ton of fun.
8. Do you have any ships you don’t like or used to but don’t anymore?
Hmm…not really? I mean I guess there are some I’m less fervent about now, like Buffy/Spike, but I still ship it. It’s just difficult when the show isn’t on the air anymore, you know?
16. Do you associate certain songs with certain ships or fanfics? If you could make a playlist for your OTP(s), which songs would be on there?
Oh honey, you will regret asking this question. I do this ABSURDLY often, to the point where a lot if not most of the songs I like are associated with some character or OTP now. I’ll give you a short rundown of the top ones. (for Martin/Molly and Sherlock/John I have SO MANY, but I’ll restrain myself)
9. Are there any kinks you love to read? Any you avoid?
There aren’t too many things that I try to avoid, just the more extreme ones I think. I definitely don’t read any incest or non-con (it upsets me far too much), but other than that I guess I’m up for pretty much anything. As for things that I particularly enjoy…well.
Well-written getting together stories, exhibitionism/voyeurism, anything involving formal wear, dominance play, and uh…restraints.
WELL THAT WAS TOO MUCH INFORMATION FOR EVERYONE INVOLVED

“Look, this is a very safe aircraft. I have a good pilot and a safe pilot, and the safe pilot is in charge of the good pilot. Martin won’t let them get into trouble and if they do Douglas will get them out of it… but Arthur doesn’t do anything, he just serves meals. If anything went wrong I’d handle it and if I wasn’t on board the pilots would handle it. Arthur is basically just a passenger in a hat. And that’s only because he made himself a hat.”—Carolyn, 203 Ipswitch A perfect summery of the entire show. (via 221b-acadia-road-sunnydale)
But coming back to tumblr after being (mostly) away for a while due to lack of internet made me realize just how much I love everyone on here. Seriously.
My followers, the people I follow, everyone from my fandoms (especially you, Cabin Crew), you all make my life so much happier. Thank you for putting up with me and encouraging me (even when you really shouldn’t, come on now guys), and for always being there for me no matter what.
