Not that I plan to reveal anything extraordinary or secretive here, but as I already have one public journal in my Tumblr blog, I thought the secong blog could be a bit more private.

If anyone is interested to meet me in Tumblr, it is http://ladytp.tumblr.com/ - I think...at least, my blog name is ladytp. 100 points for originality and inventiveness, I know! :-)

So anyone who may come across this, I still would love to interact with you - so if you feel the same, do send me a friend request!

All my fanfiction that I have posted in my LJ journal, should be pretty much also posted in AO3 (http://archiveofourown.org/users/LadyTP/works) and FF (https://www.fanfiction.net/u/4007366/LadyTP).

See you later...

Titles?

Hi all!

Moony's recent contemplation about the title of her fics made me wonder: How do you guys choose titles for the stories you write?

Is it a long and tedious process, going through multiple options, or is it whatever comes to mind first? Do you choose something that describes the story contents, or do you go with an abstract notion? I know many titles come from snippets of poems or songs - is that the way you go?

Just curious...

As I mentioned in my comment to Moony, I have deliberately named my stories as minimally as possible, using only one or two words (except the very first one, when I had no clue or idea or plan). I like the minimalist approach, although trying to come up with one word only that summarises the story is not always easy. Also, simple names are more common across the fandoms and can cause confusion, which I didn’t think at first. Who knows, eventually I may change tact and start choosing over-flowing, multi-sentence monsters that take half the page just by themselves!

Anyone?

I got tagged by   [livejournal.com profile] littlebirdhound   for this ten random things, to state 10 random facts about myself - so here I go…

1. One of my very earliest memories is playing in snow, so deep it was to my armpits (which realistically considering wasn’t probably very deep at all, at that age…)
                                                          snow
2. Since I finished my degree I have worked in five different positions, but never applied ‘cold’ to any of them (i.e. they have all proceeded outside ‘normal’ application processes)
3. I have dyed my hair to a colour different to its true colour for so long that I hardly remember (know?) what my true colour and shade would be if I would stop doing it…
4. I am particularly drawn to hairy men (unfortunately in my imagination only, nowadays…) – hairy chest, arms, hands, knuckles, legs…I don’t even mind hairy shoulders or back!
                                                hair
5. I enjoy being on my own – an evening or weekend alone without the hubby is a bliss (as much as I love him and enjoy spending time with him as well!)
6.  I have no kids and have never felt an inkling of desire to have any (my hubby neither) – it is absolutely cool and understandable that other people want children, but…it just has never been me…
7. I rather spend an hour of my time in a foreign city in trying to find a nice restaurant for dinner (or lunch) rather than by shopping.
                                                                                                                          restaurant
8. I have had two BIG loves in my life; absolutely overblowing, swiping-feet-from-under-me-kind of loves…plus two smaller ones and a few ‘good time’ crushes/loves…
9. I don’t have much female intuition or perception about people, relationships and undercurrents of such matters; I am more like men in that sense, and usually the last to notice anything (“A and B have been having an affair? C is pregnant? D does not like E?”)
10. I am getting seriously addicted to wine...with meals, after dinner, just by itself…not (only) to get drunk but because I enjoy the taste. Sometimes getting tipsy is an undesired side-effect and I wish it wouldn’t happen (those about to suggest drinking non-alcoholic wines, have you ever tasted any??? I do enjoy the taste…especially buttery, creamy Chardonnay, berry, smooth Merlot, spicy full-bodied Shiraz, fruity, tarty Pinot Noir … yummm…)
                                                                            wine

1. Your main fandom of the year:

ASOIAF of course – I admit I only discovered it this year…Have I really been under the rock all this time?!?

2. Your favorite film this year:

The Royal Affair' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g11xkVjl7bM – with Mads Mikkelsen (http://www.madsonline.net). Enough said…

3. Your favorite book this year:

All 5 of ASOIAF (I know, lame…but again my excuse is that did ead them just this year!)

4. Your favorite album or song this year:

Florence and the Machine 'The Breath of Life' - that voice! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROtBbOcdFxo)

5. Your favorite TV show this year:

Excuse my lameness again, but ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 2…and the surprisingly gripping drama of ‘Homeland’. Usually not big on political drama, but the quality British acting by Damian Lewis hooked me  in.

6. Your favorite LJ community this year:

Does it need to be spelled? sansa_sandor of course!


7. Your best new fandom discovery of the year:

Ahem, see previous…

8. Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year:

Aaaargh! Has to be SanSan storyline brutalising at GoT S2.

9. Your TV boyfriend of the year:

Damian Lewis … something about gingers and excellent actors (http://www.damian-lewis.com/)

10. Your TV girlfriend of the year:

Although not in TV-series but rather in the movies, I can’t stop gushing about the talent and ethereal beauty of Cate Blanchett!

11. Your biggest squee moment of the year:

After I entered my first ever fanfic story to CommFicMeme and got my first review

12. Your most missed old fandom:

None, I was a virgin in this and have no comparisons…

13. Your fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?

If there is a fandom for 'Devil's Whore'  I would join it (maybe there is – better examine…) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1fGTRaMucI&list=FLajXt6o-l4dNumUDHgxwBog&index=17)


14. Your biggest anticipation of the New Year:

To write more and get better at it, rather than frustrated on my feeble attempts!

The Writing

Only started that too in September, urged by the great concept of CommFicMeme 2 – all three can be found in my AO3 (http://archiveofourown.org/users/LadyTP)

Jan -

Apr -

Jul -
Aug -
Sep – ‘Under the Dornish Sun’ and ‘Stolen’ (for CommFicMeme 2)
Oct -
Nov -
Dec – ‘The Triangle’ (first 3 chapters)

Total words: 46,604

My best story(ies) of this year:

Ha ha, not much to choose from! I liked ‘Stolen’ but have high hopes for ‘The Triangle’.

My favourite story of this year:

Not sure if this is to be about my own stories or others…If latter I go for (so many to choose from!) with 'Northern Lights and Midnight Sun'  http://l-stat.livejournal.com/img/userinfo.gif?v=100.1ownsariver,  'These Scars we Wear' b http://l-stat.livejournal.com/img/userinfo.gif?v=100.1wonder_1859 and 'Sevenmas' http://l-stat.livejournal.com/img/userinfo.gif?v=100.1starbird1

Most fun story to write:

‘Under the Dornish Sun’ – it was my first!

Sexiest story:

Ahem, not really been there yet…but plan to explore a bit this aspect as well in the near future J

Story with the single sexiest moment:

‘Stolen had this ‘feel - touch’ moment between Sandor and Sansa – pretty lame though!

Story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters:

I really love to delve  into Jaime in ’The Triangle’ and his interactions with Sandor. New insights…

Hardest story to write:

Ha ha, again soooo many to choose from! My third one, as first two were more  ‘by the seat of my pants’,  in this I actually try...

Biggest Disappointment:

Not enough time, and that nagging feeling that I may be neglecting other parts of my life by immersing in this stuff.

Biggest Surprise:

How much good, excellent and magnificent stuff there is in the wonderful world of Internet! Why didn’t I find this before??

Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the New Year?

Finish ‘The Triangle’, then go crazy with some shorter, hopefully quirky stuff.

I'd like to thank the academy...(Thanks to your betas, frequent commenters/supporters, the people who stayed up with you late on IM...)

Absolutely want to than http://l-stat.livejournal.com/img/userinfo.gif?v=100.1wildsky_sheri whom I luckily discovered after extensive research, and who has opened my eyes to how to write. Also to http://l-stat.livejournal.com/img/userinfo.gif?v=100.1the_moonmoth for her support and patience when I was asking all kinds of probably stupid questions when I started. Also thanks to everyone who has given me encouragement and support via their comments! Comments are truly one thing that keep the authors going…
