gothikmaus: (Hawaii Five-O)
I haven't seen the latest H50 episode yet (hopefully that will change as soon as my internet connection starts working decently again), so I can't say anything about it. But I saw a few comments that made me stop and think. I'm going to post this here in my journal and not in a community because I'm afraid it'd stir up a wankfest of epic proportions.

I've been so busy bitching about my job lately that I haven't posted a fangirly entry in ages. To try and correct this, have this tweet by Alex, from when he live-tweeted during the premiere last week. Yeah, it's old news, but it made me laugh.


I'm sure Scott would be thrilled to do it. XD

Still working on that DÄ concert list. I can only say this: it's LONG.

Also: it's Friday, I only have two more hours to work and I'm going to an Indian restaurant with some friends for dinner tonight. Weekend, here I come!

Oh, man, the latest H50 episode was so bad. I had seen comments and entries saying the same thing, but I thought people were exaggerating. Well, they weren't. There was the potential for a very interesting episode, but sadly it didn't work for me.

Well, this was much quicker than the bodyswap fic. The kissemdanno LJ comm is open for business, so I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and used one of the tropes in my [community profile] trope_bingo card for inspiration. Trope used: "Road trip". The ficlet is posted over at kissemdanno.

"I can't believe I'm doing this," Danny said as he leaned against the side of the car.

Finally. Here's the bodyswap fic for my [community profile] trope_bingo card. Took me long enough. Pre-slash, rated PG for swearing, more humorous than slashy.

Title: Walking in my shoes
Pairing: Steve/Danny (pre-slash)
Rating: PG
Warnings/Spoilers: none
Word count: ±5080
Summary: He must be suffering from a hell of a concussion, because what he was seeing couldn't be real.
Author's note 1: Written for my [community profile] trope_bingo card. Trope: "Bodyswap".
Author's note 2: Title stolen from Depeche Mode, because I can't come up with decent titles

'Only in Hawaii,' Danny muttered, fastening the strap of his bulletproof vest around his waist. 'Only on this godforsaken rock in the middle of the ocean.' )

I know I said I would post my [community profile] trope_bingo fic, but I didn't have time to reread it, 24 hours a day aren't enough. *sigh*

Talking about H50, I found this clip from episode 3x18:

Elections are over. We don't have a clear majority and forming a government will be nearly impossible. Millions of people still voted for you-know-who after everything he's done. Still a few hours before we find out who the new local governor in my region (Lombardy) will be.

I'll just ignore everything and distract myself with this pretty picture:

My [community profile] trope_bingo bodyswap fic just hit 3200 words. And it's still pre-slash. How did that happen?

Would anyone be interested in beta-reading it when I'm done? No idea when I'll finish, it's almost done, but I don't have much time to write and I usually only do at the weekend, so it may take another week or two before it's ready. It's Hawaii Five-0, Steve/Danny pre-slash, rated PG, with a bit of team, a bit of Rachel and a bit of Grace. Not really crack but, hey, it's bodyswap.

Let me know!

Just last night I was thinking that being single on Valentine's Day sucks and that I'm fed up of seeing ads with happy couples kissing and being lovey-dovey everywhere. But then this morning I saw this image prompt on the 1_million_words LJ comm and thought "F*ck it, I'm gonna write a Valentine's drabble for my flist!" Which turned into a double drabble, aren't you lucky.

Title: Operation Strawberry Fields
Pairing: Steve/Danny
Rating: PG
Warnings/Spoilers: none
Word count: 200
Summary: Steve finds something and decides to put it to good use.
Author's note 1: Inspired by this image prompt on the 1_million_words LJ comm
Author's note 2: Title stolen from episode 2x03 and The Beatles

"Is that a fondue set?" Danny asked, looking down at Steve.

Steve had spread out a blanket on the sand and was lying on his side on it, propped up on one elbow. In front of him, surrounded by plates holding several pieces of sliced fruit, was indeed a small fondue set.

"I found it in a cupboard this morning, it was still in the box. It must be a never used present."

"I see. And you thought having an impromptu fondue party on the beach would be a great idea. Because sand won't stick to the fruit or end up in the chocolate. No, really, it was a very smart move, I applaud you."

Steve smiled up at him and picked up a plump strawberry. He dipped it in the melted chocolate and brought it to his lips, catching a drop of chocolate on his tongue before it dripped onto his T-shirt. He then proceeded to bite into the fruit, moaning in a way that could only be described as obscene.

Danny swallowed. Smooth Dog McGarrett wasn't subtle at all, and someone would have to inform him of that one day, but at the moment Danny really didn't care.

Yesterday I went to V's wedding. Today half a dozen relatives are coming over for lunch. I'm going to explode.

That aside, I saw these stills from H50 3x16 and I had to smile:

Spoilery comments behind the cut )
gothikmaus: (H50 - Steve/Danno)
Sorry for posting twice in a day, but I've just finished my first [community profile] trope_bingo art and I wanted to post it before going to sleep. It's genderswap! I've wanted to draw something like this ever since I read "Some kind of Freaky Friday" by [personal profile] delicatale (because the way she described female!Steve was damn hot), but I never actually did it. Until now! I also thought of writing something to go along with it, but it would end up being too similar to the bodyswap story I'm currently writing, so I just drew the fanart.

I drew it on paper and coloured in with Photoshop, it's nothing fancy but I'm glad I finished it. Also, I suck at drawing hands and shoes, but that's nothing new.


I got a little carried away drawing Steve's eyelashes )

I'm too old to come back home at 5 AM. But last night was V's hen night (or hen party or bachelorette party or whatever you call it) and some celebrating was in order. Her fiancé was in London with his friend to celebrate, we didn't have much time to organise, so we decided to do a surprise party at her place. She was supposed to have dinner with her maid of honour (well, our equivalent of the maid of honour, we don't have bridesmaids in Italy), we all met and waited until she was inside, then rang the bell and screamed "Surprise!" when she opened the door.

It was a funny night: we dressed her up in a wedding dress made of toilet paper, made her sew a sock and had a little quiz to see how well she knows her future husband. Of course for each wrong answer she had to drink a glass of wine. It was a simple, laid back thing, but we all had fun.

I'm still half-asleep, but this H50 pic put a smile of my face:

I was supposed to go to my cousin's place for lunch with my parents today, but I really wasn't in the mood. So I stayed home, relaxed, watched two Hawaii Five-0 episodes from Season 1 (just to check if the DVDs I got my mum for Christmas work, of course) and finally finished the H50 drawing I'd been working on. Last piece of fanart of the year!

Today I was finally able to watch the latest H50 episode. I downloaded it days ago but didn't have time until this morning. Things at work are still insanely busy, I'm alone in the office doing the work of 2 people and on top of everything else today we launched the new website of the local newspaper I collaborate with. I'm exhausted. Hopefully I'll be able to fix the last ongoing problem at work next week, so I can relax for a few days over Christmas.

And while we're talking about Hawaii Five-0, I said I would buy Season 1 for my mum, right? Well, I couldn't find it anywhere. It was released in July and it's gone. Luckily I found it on, I should receive the parcel at work on Tuesday.

Here, have a spoiler video from next week's episode, it cheered me up immensely (unless you don't like Steve/Cath, in that case don't click):

Aaand [ profile] urania_chan got my Christmas card! I didn't know what to draw this year, so I used one of her LJ icons for inspiration.

Aaah, I'm enjoying my day off immensely. Sure, I checked my work email this morning because there are a couple of things that are still ongoing, but I forwared the important ones to my boss and the others can wait.

I was thinking of going to the Christmas market, but I didn't feel like facing the cold and the hordes of Christmas shoppers. So I slept in, had a waffle for breakfast and caught up with some online stuff this morning, so now all I have to do is finish two Christmas cards. I still need to buy a present for my friend S, my dad and my mum, but I know what to buy, so it shouldn't be a problem. Actually, I've already bought a present for my mum, but my dad didn't know what to get her, so I suggested the Hawaii Five-0 DVDs and kindly offered to buy them for him. I am so very generous. Can you believe they released Season 1 on DVD just a couple of months ago?! I wanted to buy it for my mum last Christmas but couldn't find the DVDs anywhere and then last summer I found out it hadn't been released for the Italian market yet! Oh, well, at least they're here now.

And while we're talking about H50 and Christmas, [ profile] azziria got my card! I only sent it on Monday or Tuesday, I'm very impressed.

Steve says 'Mele Kalikimaka!' )

- I thought last week was busy. This week has been CRAZY. TGIF.

- I finally had time to watch the latest H50 episode last night. Oh, Danny. Oh, Steve. ♥

- My mother is the biggest Danny fangirl on the planet and shows the picture I took with Scott Caan in LA to everyone who visits her. (Thank God I'm not around when she does that.) She also keeps asking me "Does he really talk like that? Does he really walk like that?" And she's envious because I met the actor who plays Deeks in NCIS:LA too. She only wishes I had met Michael Weatherly from NCIS as well. When I was in Los Angeles, every time I called home she would ask me "Have you met DiNozzo yet?!" Fangirlism is obviously hereditary.

- A spoilery pic tweeted from PLenkov under the cut:

Warning: potential cuteness overload )

Right, back to work. /o\

OK, I guess the whole universe has seen this clip from the H50 Halloween episode, but I'm going to post it anyway because it's the best damn thing EVER. I don't even care about what happens in the rest of the episode.

Spoilerphobe? Don't click )

I mean, really? REALLY? I have no words. Only dolphin sounds. Loud dolphin sounds.

Oh. My. God. I'm going back to my old school to talk about our exchange program next week, so I had a look at their website. First of all: they recently moved to a new address after a push and pull that lasted for more than 15 years (there were rumours about moving when I was still in school). But on the site there are 3 different addresses listed: the new one and the old ones, and it's not clear whether they have already moved or are planning to. I see they are still as disorganised as ever. They also have a page with little video interviews with ex students and they interviewed 3 of my classmates! I was laughing so hard. Of course our resident diva is platinum blonde now.

And while we're talking about schools, I've just called my old Berlin school to ask about the exchange program in Germany. I hadn't spoken German is such a long time, I was all nervous. But that's a nice coincidence, as I wrote an email in German just a couple of hours ago. And to Farin no less! Thanks for the heads-up, Jenny! :D Less than two weeks till the concert in Friedrichshafen!

I'm feeling fangirly today. So let me add two H50 pics. The second one is the screencap of a tweet by Lenkov and a little spoilery, you've been warned.

Pff, my boss is lucky I can work so well under pressure. I whipped out a Power Point presentation for her in 30 minutes, but I'm not sending it to her just yet, I don't want her to think I'm so good that she can make a habit out of it and will start giving me last-minute assignments and expect me to finish them right away.

So, while I'm wasting time, I'll just share a couple of favourite quotes from the latest H50 episode.
