August 12.

I won't make excuses, but I will make apologies. Lots of them. Because I am sorry. I'm kind of heartbroken about a lot of stuff right now. This failure is just another shovelful for the pile.

Real life has been kicking my ass this month and not apologizing, and frankly, the fic wasn't good enough to post anyway.

Maybe, as wendy said in her email, the fic never will be posted. Who knows. Just go enjoy PM's art and hope for the best that I can get my head out of my ass and post on August 12.

I want to host a commentficathon, but I can't decide on a theme. Ideas? I'm so bad at those because I can never come up with prompts. Like, ever. So what I do come up with is invariably super lame and no one ever writes it. [Poll #1400562]

I'm going to have to go for an incomplete in this PP&P class. That's just all there is to it. Damn it.

Did some crappy writing today. Started my [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang. Looks like Hermione gen (maybe) with a side of Harry/Draco. Might be fun. I don't know. Haven't written Harry Potter fic in... three years or so.

I bought a mini-to-DVI adapter so I can hook up my Macbook to my 22" monitor, mostly so I can edit Deadsville with three windows open side-by-side at once. Still don't feel like working on it, but I'm encouraged by Bekah's initial thoughts on it, and I've been thinking about maybe developing the wives a little more. I'm worried about going too much into Closer territory, though. I cannot possibly be the only person who expected Clive Owen/Jude Law a little bit in that one.

I have nothing of substance to say. Made it home from DC safely. I took tons of pictures at the Smithsonian, but then my camera battery died halfway through the forensic anthropology exhibit and stupid me didn't take the charger, so nothing else.

I'm still exhausted from everything, and the pile of things I have to do and haven't for my PP&P class just got one more thing taller today. I think I might have to withdraw from this class, I'm sorry to say.

And Big Bang summaries are up! I can't get over HOW MANY THERE ARE, OMG. Some sound kind of lame, some sound like stuff I would read on a slow fic day, and some I want to read immediately. Which, really, is par for the course.

Anyway, off to class!

Draft finished and sent, complete at 21,714 words. EEEEEEEE!

Leaving for DC now. Probably incommunicado 'til Sunday.

I love everything right now. EVERYTHING.

I JUST PASSED 20,000 WORDS!

Still got a good 2000 to go, though. Boo.

EDIT: I now have like eighty tabs open about pelvic injuries. I could write a fucking paper on the subject, I think. Why did I not do this research earlier? It's not like I didn't know this was coming!
unreckless: (SPN - Big Bang OMG what did I do)
I'm having WAY more trouble writing this fucking summary for Big Bang than I ever had writing the story itself. And that is certainly saying something.

The real story is always in what you don't say, but eventually all that silence fills you up and then something breaks. Maybe everything breaks. Brokeback Mountain with scalpels.

Which, obviously, says ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Also, Jesus Christ, how in the fuck did Brock Kelly manage to shove his way into this story? No, seriously. He's Seth Vincennes's leading man.

*facepalm*




A couple of recs (one new, one quite old)

Heroes:
Scraps by [livejournal.com profile] mint_amaretto. Noah/Elle, Sylar/Claire mentioned. Adult.
He needs her just as much as his apple pie life and perfect family.

Run, don't walk to read this. This is the most chilling, in-character Elle I've ever read. Noah is perfect. Everything about this is amazing.

Supernatural:
Flood of Water by [livejournal.com profile] sevenfists. Sam/Dean. NC-17.
Fanfic cliche #37: Character X turns into a woman! Uh, this is not a comedy.

This is an old one I just stumbled across last night. It's spectacular. Girl!Dean. Just... spectacular.




EDIT: OMG, SOMEBODY WROTE BASEBALL J2 FOR J2_EVERAFTER. I HAVEN'T READ IT YET, BUT I DON'T EVEN CARE IF IT'S BAD. I NEED TO LAY DOWN.

Big Bang 2009 Progress!
 
19149 / 20000 words. 96% done!

THAT'S RIGHT, BITCHES. HOME STRETCH.

Five scenes left to write, per the outline. I think I'm just going to do three of them for now and do the others after I submit the draft.

Now, for a summary that goes "You! Artist-type! Pick this story!" while doing the fic justice. Good thing I've had a title for this thing for months.



ETA: It's now 8 am and I haven't been to bed yet. Whoops.

So last night, when I posted that fic? I didn't even read it before I posted it. I just posted it and ran out the door to go to a club. International Dance Night, dude. I danced with a gay black man, a Mexican dude old enough to be my dad, and the most adorable Indian kid ever, not to mention this pathetically drunk grad student who was actually pretty cute (if he would've stopped breathing his stinky drunk breath on me and trying to talk about hyenas and how hard it is to be a male talking to females or something).

So... this is midterm week. I have two unfinished big fics due this week, but I have to admit that my two exams and a project are more important. So... I'm probably going to fail both BigBang and j2_everafter. SAD FACE.

The Indians just won, so I guess that's a plus. Trevor Crowe played!
unreckless: (Heroes - Future!Peter is a badass)
So.... much... flist... to... go... through. Oh my god. It just seems like half the people are STILL bitching about the "crazy tinhatters" being, you know, crazy, and the pro-girlfriend people being, like, "STFU HATERS" and I'm sorry, add in the Misha love and I am not seeing how this is ANY DIFFERENT from any other weekend, except there's more video than usual. And sure, it's pretty freakin' hilarious video, some of it, but I'm kind of meh, give me more Dollhouse and Heroes episodes like 1961 and stop talking about goddamn Jensen Ackles, please.

Like, I'm using my "Future!Peter is a badass" icon because that's how I feel about everything I'm seeing (and also because fuck you, I have loved Milo Ventimiglia since the first time Jess Mariano tried to steal Lorelai's beer, and future!Peter? Badass). No, seriously. I have unpopular opinions, I guess.

I'm about to just say fuck it and apologize that I'm just not up to the task of wading through it. I suck, I know. I don't even have a big flist (like, at all), and it's ONE WEEKEND, not to mention that, as far as I can tell, it's been pretty quiet since everyone's working on BigBang and finishing up [livejournal.com profile] j2_everafter.

cut for WHINE )

Oh, and FUCK YOU, UMPIRING CREW. And fuck you, too, jerkoffs in the media who're trying to blame Trevor Crowe for the fan interference on the fucking ruled-as-a-HR-anyway-so-why-are-the-NY-people-still-whining-about-it thing. (Yes, this paragraph was so I could use my Trevor Crowe tag. I need a Crowe icon.)

ANYWAY. Here, ask me questions and flatter my ego. Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] dragynflies (whose fic tag I STILL have open in one tab and haven't gotten to yet, and it's been like a week and a half and I feel awful, I'm so behind on everything):

Ask me a question about one of my fanfictions. It can be absolutely anything in any fic and I will tell you the honest-to-god answer. Don’t hold back. Ask about major upcoming plot points if you want to. Whatever you ask, I have to answer truthfully.
