Erm, contemplating posting snippets of unfinished SGA AU fics which I don't think I'll ever manage to complete.  Thoughts?

One's a Pirate AU :) and the other has Rodney hiring John to be his date to make Sam jealous (AU in that they work at rival companies).  Actually reading some of the second one, I might come back to it one day.  The Pirate one I don't think so though.  Shame because its partially plotted out and I really like it, just no motivation for the writing part of the process :(
Title: When Shut-Up Hearts Are Opened Freely
Word Count: 2,256
Summary: It's Secret Santa time in Atlantis
Character/s: Rodney McKay, (Peter Kavanaugh)
Genre: Fluff? Humour? Holiday fic :)
Beta: By the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] kimberlyfdr 
A/N: Response to a promt from [livejournal.com profile] scarlet_gryphon, I'm sure its not quite as Kavanaugh centric you would like but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless! :) (Title from a Charles Dickens quote)

BUT I just wrote a few lines of fic and it cheered me up a little :) Hopefully I'll have time to finish it tomorrow or wednesday, anyone up for beta-ing a gen SGA fic (Rodney-centric-ish)?

Despite still recovering from being horribly ill (AGAIN FFS!), I feel like writing Christmas fic. Any prompts?

Shows I'm into atm are Stargate Atlantis, Supernatural, Ashes to Ashes, Due South, Life on Mars, The OC, Merlin and Sports Night, so I feel I could write for them as character voices are floating around my consciousness :)


(nothing too, like, happy people, I like to crush characters souls)

So I've just read McShep fic [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza 's Benched

It's brilliant! And is my new favourite fic of hers (a complete lie, I can never choose, they're all amazing). There's some Rodney whumping, mostly off-screen and some John angst-ing over it and much much more which I can't do justice because I'm lame! Basically it's amazing, everyone must read it! :) Also, I completely adore the ending!

The Hard Prayer by[info]rheanna27

A Stargate Atlantis apocalypse AU McShep.  This fic is beyond amazing.  I haven't read much SGA recently and I usually wouldn't read something so completely different but I'm glad I did.  Rodney and John are both damaged, but in the same ways as they are normally just hugely exaggerated.  Their journey is briliant.  Made me smile and cry and want to hug the fic and the boys and never let go.

My favourite quote : "...I'll miss civilization. It was mostly crap, but a lot of it was fun crap. Now there's a fitting epitaph for humanity."

Read It!!!


So I bought Season Five of SGA!  And I remember feeling generally dissatisfied at the end of the season to begin with, so I'm doing a rewatch, and you lucky flist that you are get to here my thoughts on the subject!! :)

SGA501: Search and Rescue )


-          CGI shots, Lorne, Caldwell and Michael for the win

-          Thumbs up for Ronon calling Sheppard on his lameness

-          Possible Ickyness of baby being born scene well averted

-          Bye bye Carter = sad. Hello Woolsey = YAY

-          Crazy risking hundreds of off screen characters for two leads

-          Keller at this point still a little irritating

Just been watching Merlin videos on youtube, and omg I had forgotten my love for the show and the boys and OMG I want more, but i cant afford DVDs and have pretty much exhausted youtube... the fandom in terms of fic is now so immense that its kind of terrifying to even begin to start navigating.... help?  Recs?

Also just read [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza 's Sheppard's Law, its brilliant, amazing and fantastic *grins*  Even when I'm beginning to feel like I've read so much fic in the SGA fandom that I cant take anymore I can always read more by [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza .  Its an amazing fic, made me laugh and cry and just go and read it now.

Now I need to get back to quietly panicking over my incomplete dissertation which I'm completely stuck and is due in two weeks, and an essay and OMG WHAT AM I DOING ON LJ??? *despairingly disconnects wireless* .... who am I kidding, I cant disconnect my internet.

Also, I'm panicking over what to do with my life and have seen an interesting masters on film, tv and cult media.  But many have asked the question how would this help me with my career/life etc.  Can anyone give me a satisfactory answer to this question that I can use so I can justify the expense in terms of time and money to do this degree for a year?  Other options inclue and MA in Journalism, or a Creative and Proffesional writing MA.  Or getting a job and saying to hell with it, I'll be boring and uneducated.

Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] perfica  and [livejournal.com profile] danceswithgary 

Post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations. No more than one sentence!

(1)  “I-”  Malcolm paused, what was he doing here?

Draco was laying unconscious next to him on it, but as a testament to the size of the bed there was almost two clear metres between them.

(3)  Draco snorted, “Oh yes, you’ve found me out now Potter.  All that kicking of and verbal abuse toward house-elves was just a way of me exerting my overwhelming jealously over their enviable lifestyle."

(4)  “Yes, hello Carson,” he replied as he watched over-the-hill-surfer snag his waitress on her way to deliver Rodney’s beer.

(5)  John’s stomach clenched, because whatever Rodney was doing, whatever the hell he thought he was doing, was not something he was prepared to let continue.

(6)  It was Sheppard who disappeared first, right before Rodney’s eyes. 

(7)  “Fantastic, our very own Jack Sparrow.  I’d keep away from the women on this ship, they’ll cut them off before you can say Davy Jones,” he muttered.

I have a compulsion to write fic, much much fic.  Why?  Probably because i need to write my 10,000 word dissertation in the next two weeks (current word count? 400) then hand it in, write 3x3000 essays, get my disso back and rewrite it all by end on March....

Then several weeks of nothing, and by that i mean revision, and then some exams at the beginning of May.  And then I'll be FREE!!

First thing I'm going to do: Finish Harry Potter Draco/Harry Post DH fic 'And All Over Again'
Second thing: Write another Sports Night Fic, any length, pairing, gen, I dont care, I just feel like I should
Third: Write a Demons Fic... why??? Seems like it might be fun :)
Fourth: WRITE SOMETHING ELSE!  Any prompts/pairings? it'll clearly be a while but I think i'm gonna spend my year off writing :) Provide me with a starting point people! *g*

(Fandoms: SGA, SG1, SGU??, Star Trek Enterprise, DS9, maybe Voyager?, Supernatural, Demons, Sports Night, Due South, Harry Potter, The OC, Being Human, Merlin, Gilmore Girls, Friends, Darren Shan, Doctor Who, High School Musical, Hollyoaks, House, Life on Mars, Neighbours, Red Dwarf, Sanctuary, Skins, Smallville, Torchwood - OMG TV OBSESSED)

It has just hit me that the last episode of Atlantis is on on Friday....

I don't quite know what to do with myself...

Yay, 2281 words into my SGA fic :)  (see previous posts under sgaficofdoom tag)

I think I've decided to do it as a series or stories.  To begin with I really wanted to write it all in one epic story.  But in my head it really kind of fits into segments so this is better I think.

Also I've fallen in love with the Regina Spektor song 'The Call' (which yes is the song at the end of Prince Caspian) and kind of want to use the line 'No need to say goodbye' as the title, but I don't know if it sounds to light/hopeful/positive for a story that I dont know will have a happy ending yet.

Anywho, must get back to imprisoning the team in someone's evil lair before I have to get up tomorrow and start actual work for uni...

So another image to go with the epic SGA fic which may never get written (see here and here for further details)
I'm not as please with this one, it isnt as nice (partly because Rodney looks all weird and demonish, but that was kinda the idea) but i figure i might as well add it to the list of resources i seem to be building :)

Also, I made some notes which i've scanned to my computer and loaded onto photobucket.  Have decided to share, so if anyone wants to play pre-emtive beta and pull apart the ideas then please do, in fact i'd appreciate it! :)

So far its just the history of the original characters, havent got to how the SGA lot enter in yet.  Scans are HERE and HERE.

And yes I continue to use my Tainted icon, even though I'm not sure if that's what I'm going to title it yet :)

EDIT: I just found just over a thousand words of this fic on my computer... I'd forgotten I had written it, actually I cant even remember doing it.  I love it when that happens :) There's also the beginning of a story outline which looks pretty good. Yay :)

*yawns* should be sleeping, early start tomorrow! :(  BUT was day dreaming about a fic I've wanted to write for like a year (see previous post on the subject here) and decided to make another image in the hopes it'd keep the idea alive in my brain until I have time to write it (probably in like May *cries*)

So here we are, make of it what you will....

p.s. in the middle, are those the walking undead? possibly, possibly....

First poor Jason Mamoa, he got beat up :( with a glass bottle to the face

In other SGA news I've yet to see Brain Storm and am valiiantly resisting the spilers of my flist thus far, hopefully I'll have time to watch it tomorrow or Monday.

New SGU update at Gateworld, which is the first not to make me cringe tbh... if this was the only bit of press i'd seen/heard i might be kinda positive :) ... unfortunately its not...
Any opnions on what Mallozzi means by 'surprise guest'??

Erm, other things??  OH MERLIN!!! Was made of win this evening.
Cut for spoilers )

Other news?? Uni sucks, work sucks and I'm ill.
But fandom ROCKS! :)

Also, I'm craving Smallville fic at the moment and am having difficulty finding anything, epic_recs is serving me well but a lot of their fics under the smallville tag are future/superman fics, i want kansas farmboy clark and stranded in the middle of nowhere rich kid lex...  *searches some more*

Just watched Blade Trinity.  Yay for Callum Keith Rennie!

It was ok,  missed an hour in middle to watch Dead Set, but caught the end.

However, I just kept imagining the SGA team walking in and Rodney saying "What the hell have you morons done to my city?" :)  Didnt help that Halling/Todd aka Christopher Hierdahl (sp?) was also in it...  Kinda ruined the big climactic finish for me ...
