Another year has gone and, as always, it's time to do this meme. This year I haven't been specially prolific, and most of my fics have been drabbles or short one shots, but well, I'm happy with what I did. I have also started to post again in English: except that my fics have been friendslocked, except for one that I posted under a pseud; now I feel ready to reveal that one was by me as well... Surprised much?

Sempre Solo Noi (Merlin)
Shameless (Muse)*
Forever Delayed (Muse)*
Repentance (Muse)*
Brillante y vivo (Doctor Who)
El amor te llevará a ninguna parte (Doctor Who)
Untitled drabble (Merlin)*
Untitled smutty PWP (Muse) (friends locked)*
Como en los viejos tiempos (Doctor Who)

* = In English

Total Number of Completed Stories: 11 (or 10, because Como en los viejos tiempos was originally written in 2011)

The rest of the meme )

Also, as I'm silly, I forgot to post here the FANTASTIC AMAZING BRILLIANT AND LOVELY fanart that [livejournal.com profile] darthtofu made of my fic Invincibile. It's something stunning and I'm so happy, thanks for drawing my request <3


Please, if you don't mind, don't forget to go to AO3 or Tumblr and tell her what you think of it :) I think artists don't receive as much credit and feedback for their works as they should and, just as for us writers, comments are cherished and very much appreciated, so don't be shy, she deserves all the love <3333

Hello, I'm not dead! \o/

My dissertation is so close to completion I can nearly smell victory in the air :D So here I am procrastinating a little bit! I saw this meme at [livejournal.com profile] snowgrouse's and absolutely loved it so, after three tries (the two first ones didn't reflect me at all, believe me, so at the third try I really got into choosing and not just going "both" or "no opinion"), here are my results:

1 High School/Uni AU
1 Role Reversal AU
1 Rivalmancy
1 Selfcest (possibly due to time travel)
1 Age Difference (possibly due to time travel)
1 Magical Connection (telepathy, etc)
7 Trapped in an Elevator/Snowed-In Cabin/etc
8 Seemingly Unrequited Pining
8 Actually Unrequited Pining
10 Enemies to Friends to Lovers
11 Friends to Lovers
12 Vampires/Werewolves AU
13 Fake Dating/Fake Marriage Accidentally Turns Into Feelings
14 Amnesia
15 Hurt/Comfort
16 Sex Pollen
17 Fake Out Make Out
18 Loyalty Kink
19 A/B/O
20 Espionage AU
21 Reincarnation/'25 Lives' AU
22 Coffee House AU/Food Service AU
23 Royalty/Arranged Marriage
24 Incest
25 'Groundhog Day'/Karmic Time Warp
26 Adopting/Raising a Baby
26 Soulmate Identifying Marks: Tattoo, Red Thread of Fate, etc
28 Found Families

(yup, I don't know how to make charts)

The ones who rank 1 are so me it's hilarious, honestly. Anyone surprised about the High School/Uni AU? I haven't written many, but I have read *thousands* (I mainly blame my student/teacher kink... I really don't care that much for student/student relationships, even if I like them too). And the rest of them (except Role Reversal perhaps) are so timecock it hurts; in fact, I have written all of them except selfcest... but I can't be 100% certain I don't have a Ten/Eleven or Ten/Handy WIP somewhere :D
It's that time of the year again!

Fics I've written (posted and private):
And, even if it isn't a fic, given that it has been my biggest achievement this year I have to mention the play I had to write for uni: Los Hefestiónidas (The Hefestionids). If you're interested and you speak Spanish, tell me so I can give you a link to read/watch it!

Long meme is long )

And, even if it's quite late for this, Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you have had a wonderful time and may the new year be awesome for you!
Hello! I'm alive! Summer has been very busy to be around here, sorry about that. Anyway, as many people in my flist are doing this meme, I'm going to do it as well! I nicked it from [livejournal.com profile] pwoperninjaelf.

These are forty writerly questions. Take a look and give me the numbers for up to four of the questions, and I'll answer them the best that I can.

Questions here )

I'll cross the questions out if they have already been asked.
Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] millionstar's journal!

Your first character:
-John Watson from The Heart Never Lies (Spanish). That was my first slash story and, even if I like the plot, I think I got Sherlock mostly OOC *face palm* However, this John is more or less acceptable.
-Tenth Doctor from Three Words Lost In Time. I really enjoy writing Ten, because I think I do well at writing angst and he's so angsty! Even if that story was written right after watching Doomsday and therefore it's Ten/Rose, I still like it.
-Matthew Bellamy from Changing The Rules. Almost one year since my first Muse fic! I was so nervous about writing RPS, especially because I didn't consider I knew Matt or Dom well enough to write a non-AU about them. It seems people liked it, so I guess I didn't get them terribly wrong!

Your newest character:
-Matthew Bellamy (what a surprise!) for my fill of "Truth or Dare" in my MS Bingo Card. Well, and also the Unnamed (yet) PA of some Dominic that he's going to meet in an instant...

Your loudest:
-Maybe Matt from Prompt Fever. He's a rather loud dork and always begging for attention.

Your shyest:
-Dominic from Latin Lover, hands down.

Your horniest: THIS ONE IS SO DIFFICULT. I can't choose only one fandom for this.
-Tenth Doctor from... everything that contains a sex scene? He's a horny bastard, that's the truth, especially if the Master is around. He's especially horny in Words We'll Never Say (Spanish).
-Matt from Tu Non Mi Basti Mai (I bet nobody is surprised I picked him).
-And I think my only nc17 Sherlock fic deserves a mention: John Watson is clearly horny in Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (Spanish)

Your poorest:
-Tenth Doctor in any of my Valiant!fics (all in Spanish): Words We'll Never Say, Somebody That I Used To Know Undisclosed Desires, Last Time I'll Abandon You and Need

Your richest:
-Simm!Master in any of my Valiant!fics.

Your quirkiest:
-I WRITE SHERLOCK HOLMES FIC. It has to be him, especially in The Heart Never Lies.

Your darkest:
-Tenth Doctor in Last Time I'll Abandon You.

Your brightest:
-Thinking about this question, the first one that came to my mind is Tom Kirk in Latin Lover! Matthew in Prompt Fever would also fit here.

Out of all your characters, which is the most like you?:
-*deep breath* I guess the only possible answer is Dominic in Latin Lover (if any is surprised please tell me because I'd be shocked).
-Also I should mention Molly Hooper in The Woman Who Counted Three Years. Molly it's so me as a character, even if her behaviour in that fic isn't exactly like me.

Muse meme

Jun. 5th, 2014 09:19 pm
nuraicha: (Muse)
I can't study right now so I'll do the Muse meme that has been going around Twitter the last days. I'm talking about this one.

It's loooong )

Well, this was fun! Now I should really stop procrastinating, I think.

Il Mondo Che Non C'è (Finley) - For me, this is one of the best tracks of Finley (also, I am not apologising for rambling about them almost all the time in this meme. I'M JUST 31 DAYS AWAY OF SEEING THEM FOR THE SECOND TIME HOLY FUCK). This video is just made of awesomeness and the song talks about escaping the world and basically being happy. Everytime I listen to it, I remember one of the happiest moments of my life: I was on the deck of the ship that was taking us (me and my high school mates) to Italy, it was a gloomy, nearly rainy, day and there was nothing to do -just waiting for arriving to Civitavecchia (Rome's port); I was listening to music while looking at the water, lost on my own world, when this song started playing... It was magical, like everything making sense at once, just me and their words... I felt completely *happy* and it was incredible, and since that moment I realised Italy for me was 'the Neverworld' (which is what the title means), the place I could run away to and just feel completed.

(I've found the song subtitled with the translation in English! :D Check it out)

Inmortal (Erreway) - Erreway was a band formed thanks to an Argentinian soap opera for teens, called Rebelde Way, that was a success on South America and Israel from 2001 to 2004, more or less. The show started in Spain at 2005 and became such a phenomenon that in 2006 the band reunited again (except for one member) and came here to give concerts. 7th December 2006, that was the date for Madrid and my first concert ever, and I'll never forget it. That show and this band songs marked most of my teenhood and I could ever thank them enough. This song was the first I fell in love with, and it will remain forever one of my favourite songs ever.

(Here you have the video from my gig. Not good quality but omg, I'm crying. So many memories! That evening was perfect!)

Invincible (Muse) - You know, just today I was listening to this to find courage and not breaking down. I don't think I need to explain what this song can do, because I'm sure most of you already know, but I had to include it. I listened to it for the first time around 2008/2009 and I never payed attention to it until this summer, when I finally read the lyrics and... wow. Just... thanks, Muse.

(Using this one instead of the AMAZING VIDEO THAT I LOVE WITH ALL MY HEART because it's in Italy and because Matt sings the last lines in Italian <3)

Click for the bonus! Clue: DO WE OOOOOOOO )
OMG I FINALLY CHANGED THE LAYOUT AND ALL ON MY OWN!!!!!!!! \o/ What do you think about this one? It still needs a few things to be fixed, as the gray links that don't make contrast with the background and adding some blue details because it's too black (and blue FTW, man). However, I think this layout is better for reading and certainly the comment section has improved lots, in this one you can actually see something! :D (hope it's better for you, [livejournal.com profile] snowgrouse, as I know you had quite a few problems to actually seeing anything with the former -I had them too).

Done with this, let's continue the music meme:


Hace Calor (Mucho Mejor) (Los Rodríguez) - Well, this song is actually called Mucho Mejor, but everybody knows it by the name of Hace Calor, and I think 70% of the Spanish population don't know the original name! It reminds me of the summer and my childhood! <3

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (Daft Punk) - This reminds me of when I was 14 and the crazy year I had...

Hijo de la Luna (Stravaganzza) - This is the first 'heavy' song I listened to and I LOVE IT. It's a cover of the original song by Mecano, by I prefer this one much more. The lyrics are beautiful, the song talks about a gipsy woman who couldn't have children and asked the Moon to give her a child.

Also, guess who is attending tomorrow to a conference of a famous Spanish egyptologist :D I'm so looking forward to it!

And now, I'll study for real, I promise.
Hello! Did you notice I've tried again to fix my layout and I failed miserably? The aim was changing all the comment space, as I've been told it's a nightmare to see anything there because it's so light (I've problems myself too). But I lost my patience with the CSS and just changed the colour of my background and I don't even know if I like it. What do you think?

Anyway, let's go to business:


I Gotta a Feeling (Black Eyed Peas) - Wooow I'm cheating! Let's pretend the 'I' isn't an important word, because I'm lazy to think more. I chose this song because it reminds me to the first time I went to Italy, what a night we had in the disco of the ship, heading for Rome!

Getsemaní (Camilo Sesto) - Probably most of you are familiarised with Jesus Christ Super Star, one of the most impressive musicals of all the time, in my opinion. This one is the 1975 Spanish version of Gethsemane, sang by Camilo Sesto, who was one of the most important singers during that time at the one who produced the first Spanish version of the musical. I prefer this one to the original film version because Camilo's voice just give me goosebumps and makes me want to cry instantly. I remember one time I was in the car with my parents and this song started playing: the silence fell and you could almost feel a vibrant sensation in the air; when it finished, I think we all let out our breaths, because it's just breath taking.

Gruppo Randa (Finley) - This is one of my favourite songs by Finley, mostly because it's like an anthem for them and their fans. They call themselves 'randa' and they started calling us 'randa' too after releasing this song. It talks about freedom and being yourself and listening to it live (it was the song opener!) was one of the most amazing things I've experienced.

This has been REALLY tricky, I couldn't think of more of one song... At this point, I think it's clear that, even if I listen to *everything*, the songs that more stick with me are always from only a handful of people... Well, that isn't a crime, is it? :)


Falling In Love (McFly) - If Finley are my favourite band, McFly is fighting for the second position against Muse (and Muse is winning lately). Anyway, I chose this song because it's so beautiful and live it's AMAZING. Really, you have to see McFly live because they're just so awesome and funny, their concert has been one of the best I've ever been to. I'm posting a video from the gig I went to in 2011 and it brings me a lot of memories (I GOT BARRIER FOR THE FIRST TIME and last IN MY LIFE AND I HAD BEEN LISTENING TO THEM FROM JUST 1 MONTH AND OMG I LOVE THEM SO MUCH). But here you have the regular song video.

Fragile (Paolo Meneguzzi) - Here we have Paolo again. As you know, he's my favourite singer and this song is from his last album. I have to say this album is incredible, whereas the former album (from 2010) wasn't really good at all. With this album he seems he has returned to his usual music and that's fantastic. I don't really know what the song it's about, but some of the lines are just so true and it's wonderful.

Fumo e Cenere (Finley) - This is my favourite Finley' song of all the time. It's so touching, so beautiful, it has made me cry more times that I can count and having the chance to listen to it live has been one of the most incredible moments of my whole life. Just listen to it (here you have the English version, but the Italian is better).

I wasn't going to do this after that other post, but I felt like it! Music is one of the best things that I have in my life, after that.


Escuela de Calor (Radio Futura) - One of my favourite songs of all the time. A Spanish classic.

Every Breath You Take (The Police) - The Police are fucking awesome and this song is simply fantastic.

Explorers (Muse) - I was doubting between this and Exo-Politics, but this won because... Man, I just adore this song, especially live. All the feels.


Dead Star (Muse) - I have never liked this song, except live, but lately I've found myself listening to it more and I've come to the conclusion I like it, even the cd version. So yeah, here it is.

Do You Hear The People Sing? (Les Miserables OST) - I'm not a hard fan of Les Mis, but this song is so cool and it usually cheers me up. Now I'm reading a book in French (well, trying to, I barely understand it) and it came into my mind...

Downtown (Petula Clark) - I adore this song because it reminds me to Lost, one of my favourite TV shows of all time. And the moment when it sounds for the first time... *goosebumps* Apart from that, it really sets me into a good mood! :D


Caruso (Lucio Dalla) - The first time I listened to this was watching videos of Danny Jones (McFly's member) in Popstar to Opera Star and I thought his performance was really touching. After that I investigated a little bit more about Caruso's life and listened to the original song and... wow. It's so wonderful.

Cassis (The Gazzete) - I love this song to tiny bits! It also reminds me of one of my favourite books ever and to that time I was obsessed with J-rock bands. Look up for the translation of the lyrics, they're amazing.

Closer (Nine Inch Nails) - This is the only song I've listened to of Nine Inch Nails, but I like it a lot because it reminds me to Doctor/Master (don't ask why, but I suppose you can imagine the reasons!).

PS: This week is being exhausting and it's only been two days. Great.

Bella Come Non Sei Mai (Paolo Meneguzzi) - Paolo Meneguzzi is my favourite male singer and he means a lot to me. This song isn't one of my most favourites, but it reminds me to the time I started to listening to him, when I was around 14.

Bailando (Alaska y los Pegamoides) - Alaska is a Mexican singer who has been living in Spain for almost all her life. She is a myth in popular culture because, back at the Eighties, she was the frontwoman of bands which made music as it had never been listened before here: she was one of the leading characters of a cultural 80's movement in Madrid called 'la movida' ('the movement'), just after Franco (dictator from 1939 to 1975) died and democracy started in Spain. She isn't the best singer or the best player out there, but her songs were anthems for lots of people and Spanish music wouldn't be the same without her bands. I admire her so much not only because she made catchy songs that talked about strange topics (Egyptian deities, for instance! *g*), but because she's a very smart and intelligent woman who isn't afraid of seeming weird or geek and, as one of her songs says, she doesn't give a damn about what people says about her. This song is one of the most famous she has and reminds me of my childhood, when I started listening to her thanks to my parents. I also saw her live last year and it was amazing, she's really one of my idols <3

Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen) - I'm not the biggest Queen fan but I love them a lot. Today I've been listening to this song a lot and I consider it one of the most amazing pieces of music ever created <3


I have decided to do a new meme (nicked from [livejournal.com profile] darthtofu), as a sort of celebration that I finally got Spotify and as an intention to try to listen to more new music.

This meme consists in sharing 3 songs for each letter of the alphabet. I'm picking the songs that, even if I don't listen to them often, mean something important to me. I hope I can help someone to discover new music, even if I'll warn in advance I am always listening to the same stuff!


Ad Occhi Chiusi (Finley) - This is the first song that came to my mind, probably because I love the lyrics (they recorded an English version called My Blinded Eyes, but the lyrics aren't the same as in Italian, and the meaning of the song changes a bit; I can't find it on YouTube, but it deserves a listening, so try Spotify or something!). Also, this had a great impact in me when I listened to it live in 2012: it's a song from 2007 and, honestly, I didn't think they were going to play it, but they did and it was glorious. I recomend as well the accoustic version, that I even liked more than the original one... until I listened to it live. I can't wait to repeat the experience this April!

Aerials (System Of A Down) - This can be considered the song that changed my views in music because, even if when I was little I tended to listen to lots of cool things my parents listened to, when I was in that difficult step between puberty and teenagehood I started listening to things that just... no. The song that really got me into listening to more 'hard' music and, therefore, widened my tastes was Amour Amour by Rammstein, by I always preferred this one as my 'epiphany', SOAD are fantastic!

Aïcha (Cheb Khaled) - A very special song that, as you can see, influenced me on my choice of username. I really love it and it means a lot.

I hope all of you are well! <3
Finally, finally exams have ended! I'm so happy right now because these two weeks have been stressing as hell. My life has been waking up, studying, breafast, more studying, going to bed; it has been so stressful even if, for the first time in so long, I've been keeping good schedules and I have been able to study all the subjects with time for revising before the exam.

About how exams have gone )

Even if I say I'm free, that's not totally true because I still have to do my Doctor Who presentation for English next Thursday (rambling about my favourite show in front of 30 people? Cool! If it wasn't because my pronuntiation it's horrible :D) and, most important, a Greek assignment that I have to give next Friday and I didn't start. But still, it's better than studying, isn't it?

Next week we start the new term and subjects get even more technical (and we have... MATHS *funeral music in the background*) but... I'M GOING TO HAVE ARCHAEOLOGY OF EGYPT!!!! AT FUCKING LEAST!!!! \o/ I'm so going to get a good mark in this, as my name is Irene! o/

About concert plan(e)s )

Anyway, I should continue writing the Doctor Who presentation. Should I talk about the Doctor's boyfriend or just saying that he's his best enemy? ;)


Btw, I want to do the writer's meme, as I saw it in lots of journals when I was away. So I'll give it a try now that I'm back, ask away if you want :)

Put a number in the comments and I’ll answer accordingly. The mission for those of us who answer the questions, should we accept it, is to stay positive about our writing and ourselves, but to also be fair about our shortcomings.

1. Of the fic you’ve written, of which are you most proud?
2. Favorite tense
3. Favorite POV
4. What are some themes you love writing about?
5. What inspires you to write?
6. Thoughts on critique
7. Create a character on the spot... NOW!
8. Is there a character you love writing for the most? The least? Why?
9. A passage from a WIP
10. What are your strengths in writing?
11. What are your weaknesses in writing?
12. Anything else that you want to know... (otherwise known as Fill in the Blank)

Have a good weekend, everyone!

PS: There might be an update of something #soon... Isn't it, [livejournal.com profile] zetastation? ;)
PS2: I have to change lots of things of this layout that I don't know and I hate CSS and *sobs* Well, I'll do it after finishing the homework, someday... Until that, apologies because I've been told the comments area is so light (and it is).
I finally have some place where I can post these kind of things, yay! I took this meme from [livejournal.com profile] snowgrouse, thanks <3

1) I'm stressed but trying not to think much about it.
2) I have a cold.

5) I watched the Muse dvd yesterday and gfdsijfdsagolgngdkdndlñhoisngf
6) You should read The Curious Incident of the Dog at Night Time. Great book, really.
7) I watched The Desolation of Smaug and I didn't like it as much as I did with the first movie.
9) I'm inmensely grateful for a few things that had happened in 2013:
-The 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who and the whole whovian vibe we had had.
-Going to London.
-Getting to know [livejournal.com profile] snowgrouse: you are an incredible friend and I love you so much! THANKS.
-Starting to listen to Muse, writing Belldom and knowing so many amazing people in Muse Slash. I can't name all of you, but you should know who you are! Thanks you!
-Conrad Veidt.
