ways in which I plot to waste time

Aside from writing fic of course...

1) Make terribly angsty post-OotP CD.

2) Create photo manip bookcovers for some of my more recent fic.

3) Start to make song vids (damn you [livejournal.com profile] ruggerdavey).

In other, fic related news, the O/P carnival piece now sits at four pages (which were quite speedily written for me) and will probably top out around 20. I've still got to write The Revelation of Feelings, The Confrontation with the Family, and The Oodles of Smut.

Oh, and at some point I actually have to meet the challenge given me. I think I can combine that with the Familial Confrontation. I did, however, finally figure out how to answer my challenge:

FUN HOUSE SCENARIO #5: Wizard's are real, ghosts, witches, monsters... Why not aliens? Aliens attack Hogwarts!

::eyeroll:: I know. Anyway, I've decided that what Muggles think are alien abductions are actually infestations by a Magical Creature that use human tissue samples for... something. I haven't decided that part yet. Really it's all just an excuse for angst and cuddling and smut.


I will be in need of a beta reader for the as yet unnamed O/P story, mostly for tone etc. Ponder, then volunteer. :)

catch up time

Three cheers for the new LJ default skin. I like things simple. Seriously, after years of reading fic, black text on a white background is something wondrous.

I've been a lazy updater lately. I'll try to assuage my guilt with this entry (typed in word at work, then pasted in because I'm a REBEL).

thoughts on driving and merging )

Wait, there was one person on the road I didn’t hate this morning – the guy with the license plate that read 'MENTAT'. Who's the bigger geek; him for having the plate, or me for loving it?

ahhhh, butterheads )


fic update )

Is there any kind soul with WaT tape for me? Or, even better, someone with them on their hard drive who would be willing to share with a desperate fandom whore? (insert image of me making puppy dog eyes)

the quiet

So I've been quiet lately, but I don't feel like I have since I've been posting privately to update the CSI AU chapter I've been working on.

Speaking of, I need a title before I can post anything. Hmmm... time to break out the poetry books again.

OK. Lunchtime, then off to bartelby.com to look for an appropriate title.

my life is boring

As is apparent by my complete lack of updating in the past few days. Seriously, though, not one damn thing happened last week that called for a journal entry.

Wow, that's really pitiful, huh?

Anyway, things are looking up. Kind of. I still don't have an actual job, but my temp thing has been extended through this week at least. I've got resumes in at several places, including the US District Court which would pay amazingly well when my experience is taken into consideration. So we'll see about that.

I think I'm going to go to a movie with my dad next weekend which is nice because I haven't seen him in a few weeks, but not nice because he was making noises about wanting to see Bruce Almighty so I'm going to have to redirect his attention, I think.

What else, what else... This past weekend was the birthday of the sister of the artist formerly known as Ru ([livejournal.com profile] everlastingwhy), so all of the sisters (minus Nora who lives in Vegas) converged on our apartment for the weekend and we went to the Dixie Chicks concert on Saturday night. I'm not a huge country fan - in fact, the Dixie Chicks are about the only country group I can stomach - but this is the third time I've seen them in concert and they really are great. Ru has never been a fan and was going because she loves her sister and also to show her support for them after The Incident a couple of months back. I'm happy to say, though, that the Dixie Chicks totally won her over. Not their music, though she did enjoy the fiddling quite a bit, no it was the highly entertaining and informative between set music that did it for her. Were we reading too much into it? I don't think so:

(I can't remember all the songs or the exact order, but I remember enough to get my point across)
Peace, Love & Understanding - Elvis Costello
Everybody Wants to Rule the World - Tears for Fears
Our Lips are Sealed - The Go-Go's
Band on the Run - Wings
End of the World (As We Know It) - REM
Born in the USA - Bruce Springsteen

It was a good thing.

[livejournal.com profile] carolinecrane has written another story in her Greg/Nick CSI series Sugar Rush. Strip Sega. Heh. I really wish more people would see the light of Greg/Nick instead of all the freakers who write Gil/anyone. Ew. Because it's sad that 90% of the fic around the pairing is that horrible, bad, OOC POS rapefic by CrazyFundamentalistGirl. As I like to call her.

Caroline has also started the official BWoC fanlisting. Go here for more details. I'll be registering as soon as I get home.

You know what I've been enjoying way more than I probably should? Scribe's Commercial slash series. It started with Sprint Guy/Verizon Guy slash and went from there. Sick and wrong? Probably but, for Scribe, the stories are well-written and they entertained me. Hmph. I was going to link to her website, but the link is down for the Commercial slash.

God, I'm such a slashwhore. I'll read any damn thing. Commercial slash seems tame. I mean, I've read [livejournal.com profile] tinnean's Classic Horror Movie slash. I've pillaged (in some cases multiple pairings) over a dozen and a half fandoms.

I read Harry/Draco, people.

It might be a cry for help...
