life plz  
This morning, I felt kind of lame, so I read most of Book 10.

Finals? WHAT ARE FINALS?? >_____> ...no, I actually started studying. First sign of the Apocalypse. (The second, as we know, is Aidan Marchmont walking into a meat freezer. XD)

Life is dandy. And exciting. And compelling. And Shakespearean.

Or it would be, if I HAD a life. 8D

This. Is cool. Yeah.

Last night, eltea made the mistake of telling me that I'm going to ship Puck and Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream -- which she is fairying (it is so a verb) in now, and has been since December, because that is how our Shakespeare festival, the Other Mafia, rolls. :D And which I shall subsidiary fairy (oh ho HO it rhymes XD) for in July, which will be too much fun altogether.

There will be pictures, I'm sure. :3

Anyway:

tierfal (12:24:04 AM): Watch me totally ship Lysander and Demetrius I mean wut.
tierfal (12:24:09 AM): Never let me watch Shakespeare again. :P
eltea (12:24:13 AM): XD!
tierfal (12:24:18 AM): O wait that's going to be a little tough. :P
eltea (12:24:23 AM): XD
tierfal (12:24:24 AM): :P
eltea (12:24:29 AM): Just don't watch Hamlet. XD
tierfal (12:24:37 AM): Hahaaa.
tierfal (12:24:40 AM): HAMLET/HORATIO PLZ?
eltea (12:24:46 AM): Indeed. :P
tierfal (12:24:50 AM): >3
tierfal (12:25:04 AM): I ship Hamlet/Ophelia, though, so maybe I'll just OT3 them. :P
eltea (12:25:10 AM): 8D
tierfal (12:25:14 AM): God, I'd totally ship Horatio/Ophelia; that'll work fine. :P
eltea (12:25:22 AM): XD
tierfal (12:25:35 AM): Um.
tierfal (12:25:39 AM): Let's pretend this conversation never happened.
eltea (12:25:43 AM): XD
tierfal (12:25:46 AM): By which I mean, "I'll probably post this to LJ tomorrow." XD
eltea (12:25:50 AM): :P!
tierfal (12:25:55 AM): >_>
tierfal (12:25:56 AM): <_<
tierfal (12:25:57 AM): 8D

...

Stop judging me.

HAMMER TIME.

Also, lol, my dad is on Facebook. Okay, so I've been FB friends with my stepmother for about a year now (dear God), but that's because she needed the thing for networking in her epic quest to become a State Assemblyperson (which was, in an utter and incredible nail-biter of a down-to-the-wire vote-count, ultimately successful. Connections. I haz them). BUT LIKE. MY DAD. WTF. XD

And... oh, dear.

This is slightly horrifying, and yet largely unexpected:


Yes. I broke 500,000 words on fanfiction.net. OH MY LORD.

Now, admittedly, their wordcounter tendentiously runs high, but... it also doesn't account for all of these fics, which are tierfallen exclusives, as we like to say.

As I like to say.

Something. XD

In any case, it doesn't account for all the o-fic for brigits_flame, either, and I think we can objectively and definitively conclude that I write too damn much.

Especially given that 241,243 of that total, or 48 percent, is Death Note, which I picked up in mid-August.

Nine months. 241,000 words. That is 26,777 words a month, or roughly 893 words a day.

Of just Death Note.

...that I've uploaded, so not including any of my current WIPs.

HOLY KIRA-SAMA, BATMAN.

O______________________o

Yeah.

I need to start writing shit I can get paid for now. XD

After I finish those eight million huge AU fics, that is.

One more time, I would like to thank eltea, officially, for meticulously beta-ing the overwhelming majority of those 500,000 words. Girl works harder than most betas who have, y'know, more than a single client. Umm. I frigging love you, bb. :3

And you guys are like, "Uhhh, we're not even remotely surprised given that you update every three flipping days and we can't even keep up with you take up knitting plz." XD

In related news, there is a new Fifteen chapter, "Nevermore", and L and Light are being horrible to each other again in the bit of "Kiss and Tell" I'm working on. :D

...also, bits and pieces of fic are starting to pile up again, indicating the need for an uploading frenzy. Oh, hooray. XD

500,000 is a HUGE number. O_O I *think* I've got about 300,000. Maybe. *checks* 361,000! I am almost made of win! :P

Lysander and Demetrius, huh? That sounds... like you might need some more of that stuff they put in their eyes. What was it? Something from a flower? I swear I read it a few months ago.

Haha, it is... the magic of slash? XD

I forget exactly... some sort of flower. Last time I read that one was a year and a half ago. XD

PUCK
DOST THOU REMEMBER
THE TIME I SAT UPON A PROMONTORY
AND HEARD A MERMAID ON A DOLPHIN’S BACK
UTTERING SUCH DULCET AND HARMONIOUS BREATH
THAT THE RUDE SEA GREW CIVIL AT HER SONG
AND CERTAIN STARS SHOT MADLY FROM THEIR SPHERES
TO HEAR THE SEA MAID’S MUSIC?
THAT VERY TIME I SAW, BUT THOU COULDST NOT
FLYING BETWEEN THE PALE MOON AND THE EARTH
CUPID ALL ARMED; A CERTAIN AIM HE TOOK
AT A FAIR VESTAL THRONED BY THE WEST
AND LOOSED HIS LOVE-SHAFT SMARTLY FROM HIS BOW
AS IT MIGHT PIERCE A HUNDRED THOUSAND HEARTS
BUT I DID SEE YOUNG CUPID’S FIERY SHAFT
QUENCHED IN THE CHASTE BEAMS OF THE WATERY MOON
AND THE IMPERIAL VOTRESS PASSED ON
IN MAIDEN MEDITATION, FANCY FREE
BUT MARKED I WHERE THE BOLT OF CUPID FELL
IT FELL UPON A LTITLE WESTERN FLOWER
BEFORE MILK-WHITE, NOW PURPLE WITH LOVE’S WOUND
AND MAIDENS CALL IT LOVE-IN-IDLENESS
FETCH ME THAT FLOWER, THAT HERB I SHEW’D THEE ONCE
THE JUICE OF IT, ON SLEEPING EYELIDS LAID
WILL MAKE A MAN OR WOMAN MADLY DOTE
UPON THE NEXT LIVING CREATURE THAT IT SEES

…all that is from memory. /way, WAY too many rehearsals XD
Vitamin C: Mello - Reasonabletierfal on May 17th, 2009 01:42 am (UTC)
ilu. XD

Is there a capslock Shakespeare LJ community? Because there should be. XD

And I totally used to be able to do the first scene of Caesar, which was awesome, 'cause it had the "Blocks, stones, worse-than-senseless things" monologue in it. 8D
CHAMYL!chamyl on May 16th, 2009 10:48 am (UTC)
Your posts always make me laugh my ass off LOVE YOU

Dude. 30000 people saw your profile. SCARY XD

Oh my Lighto, 900 words per day??? EVEN SCARIER XD

I'm sure you'd do awesome knitting too |D
Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on May 16th, 2009 10:43 pm (UTC)
Hee, I'm glad to hear that!! 8D

PSSHHH, half those are me going to it to link to it and/or reread it to see if I want to change anything. XD

That. That frightens me. :P

I've always kind of wanted to get into knitting, but I've never gotten around to it. XD

Ha, I wish I could write as much as you. XD 500,000 is very impressive... That's, like, ten NaNos. XD

*cowers*
Vitamin C: L - Bewilderedtierfal on May 16th, 2009 10:44 pm (UTC)
It's even scarier looking at it that way. :P

But considering that the first 250,000 were spread out over the course of... well over a year, it's not QUITE as mortifying. I guess. :P

Hahaha, there are things I SHOULD delete -- and people keep reading them and, often, liking them, and I'm just like DON'T PLAY WITH THAT IT'S FILTHY. XD

It makes perfect sense to me, though, to ditch the old stuff, because it's just not representative of me anymore. :| But I'm too lazy and obsessed with stats to do it, probably, so oh well. XD

\o/

*pats* XD We totally love it. :P

That's pretty much how I use it. And when I REALLY want to kill time. XD

>DDDDDDDDD

You are never allowed to leave me alone; didn't you read the fine print?? 8D
marissaabitofadork7 on May 16th, 2009 02:56 pm (UTC)
500,000 words? That's insanely awesome. Congratulations! XD
Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on May 16th, 2009 10:56 pm (UTC)
Thank you! XD

*dances!*

Congrats on the 500 Grand! That's impressive, and somewhat frightening. ;)

LOL, I don't read enough Shakespeare!
Vitamin C: Misatierfal on May 16th, 2009 10:58 pm (UTC)
Thank you! 8D

*dances with you* :D

Haha, he is literary-historical my baby-daddy, so it is my duty to know such things. :P

Thank you. XD

And the sad part is that that would probably give me the worst writer's block ever or I would implement it myself.

Yes; when in doubt, it is Death Note. XD

It's hot here, too. And I am not so fond of it. XD
