Ghost in the Tank

A slashy blog for Teen Wolf and whatever pop culture snares my attention. Meta, Sterek, Jeff Davis worship, and much rambling will follow.

best arthur and eames fics | #3 | presque vu by rageprufrock 

“Arthur watches him go, the easy lope to the nondescript car, and then he stands on the porch and feels like an idiot, like his heart is trying to thrash out of his chest and go after the Honda vanishing down the road. But he’s sure, in that awful way that people are sure, that he’s doing the right thing, that the only actually stupid decision would have been to leave everything and run away with Eames, to let himself be shelved along with Eames’s books — loved, but sorted away — in Paris, to let himself rely to totally on another person, to burn all his bridges.

This is better, Arthur tells himself. This is the right thing to do.”

Hi everyone! I’VE MISSED YOU ALL. (And my puppy. OH GOD MY POOR BABY.)

First of all, I have to say that I’m very sorry that I’ve been so out of it. I am not actually dead, unless you mean figuratively, and even that would be a bit of a stretch.

Remember how I said I was working on fixing that internet issue here in my new abode in China? Well, there’s been a problem – we applied for internet too late, so our December usage is restricted to 40 hours this month (which I blew past in like, two days since I didn’t know about it, and now owe 1000 freaking RMB in overcharge fees, dammit). The yard we live in is heavily government-controlled so there’s only one carrier and they’re insanely inflexible *mad face*

So, er…basically, I HAVE NO INTERNET. O_O *whispers* hold me 

Or at least, for this month – I’ll have unlimited hours starting Jan 1st as per our new contract. So I may have to take a brief hiatus on tumblr until the end of this month, since my workplace firewall doesn’t allow me to go on “frivolous” websites (translation: anything remotely interesting that will keep me from topping myself), though I’ll sneak in some “email-checking” spells like this one here and there at home. I can, however, still write without internet (oh god I hope so), so I’ll shift focus to finishing C3 of Heir to Wolves and writing some original stuff etc.

For those of you who aren’t caught up on my recent journeys…

Ohhh, the great firewall... :S I suppose that means Ao3 is completly out of your "reach" for now, uh?
lishiyo lishiyo Said:

i think Ao3 is ok, but i cant access it at work and google docs where i write stuff is.a pain.in the ass because Google and the cjinese government dont get along…however i have ways.to.get around.that *shifty look*

the real problem.with my writing atm is bc of my newjob….i dont want to look awful but i know NOTHING about our line.of.work and my chinese is.poor (yea they can speak english but chinese is still the major language) so i really have to put in more work right now. BUT i should have internet by this friday soi’m planning to write then - i’ll just sleep less i guess haha and def no more leisure redditing/watching stuff for me!

Just out of pure curiousity... (and I don't know if you were ever asked this before) why "Ghost in the Tank"? XD
lishiyo lishiyo Said:

ah, i used to be part of this very informal mangaka/doujinka group in college with a few friends called TANKMAN (referencing the famous photo from the 1989 you-know-what thingy - sorry I can’t be more specific since Im worried about the great firewall looking at keywords)…. I was the main artist and script writer, though I haven’t drawn in so long I’m afraid my skills have deteriorated rather rapidly :( and we were so busy we barely ever produced anything. I’m also a fan of Ghost in the Shell (which itself references the mind-body question in philosophy), so put those together ;) 

p.s. btw everyone I’M SO SORRY FOR NOT BEING ON TUMBLR, I don’t have internet yet in China since I’m living at my wifi-free grandma’s place and my workplace restricts access to websites, so I still have to run around and buy and set up stuff before I can get regular access at home. I will try to get on soon though! I’m even starting to make gifs :) so hopefully i will come bearing gifs  gifts soon :)

Have you written any sterek fanfics? If yes, would you mind linking it/them? Thanks in advance ^^
lishiyo lishiyo Said:

you can just click on my tumblr, my masterpost has my meta and fanfics and stuff :) here’s a link to my AO3 page, though I haven’t written much yet in all honesty!

I am so excited for Heir to Wolves. It's definitely one of the most interesting fics I've read for ages - I keep harping on about it to everyone that will listen (including people who know nothing about TW) and squealing that its Game of Thrones/Rome but with werewolves. I am the most excited to see if Stiles and Scott are gonna reunite. Because of epic transending of race bromance. and Dereks reactions. OMG. I AM EXCITED FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO. YOU'RE THE BEST.
lishiyo lishiyo Said:

thanks so much!! sorry for the late reply, I’ve been busy with my move to china and haven’t set up wifi at home yet, though luckily I’ve just discovered the tumblr isn’t blocked here :) so hopefully I’ll be able to get back to writing soon, after I settle in to my new job!

Hi there! I just wanted to say I LOVE YOU THEORIES! They make total sense and you explain yourself really well. And I really think you are right about many things. I love this blog =D, please keep writing.
