PEOPLE!!! 20 IS NOT ENOUGH!!!
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)
(Edit to Add: Quantum Leap, and The Palace)
What is it about Sports Night and Smallville as fandoms which draw the same people in? I've been searching for Sports Night fic (as I'm currently working my way through the DVDs on my bran new multi-regional dvd player *hugs it*) most is on authors personal websites, so when i go to look to see what else they've written there is inevitably Smallville fic...
I would have thought it more likely to be Due South, where the two main characters are male and best friends and the entire show is basically about them. But I suppose thats kind of how Smallville started (if you ignore Lana etc.)??
Also, what i clearly need now is a Sports Night icon....
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*
Ok, so whoever heard me say I was looking forward to jury service?? If i ever have to do it again and repeat similar sentiments, please, feel free to kick me in the head....
Spent the whole day sitting around waiting to be called, eventually being sent home, after being there for five and a half hours i think. Argh. And I have to go through it all tomorrow. I can't wait til next week when I can actually do what I want with my time, between my two jobs and now my jury service, and before that exam revision and before that end of term essay writing, I feel like i havent had a break in months, which actually yes, i handed all my essays in in April so that was when it started. *sigh* I know this tends to be what real life is like, but I was hoping to be eased in.... ho hum.
Anyway, last week I did manage to go and see Prince Caspian for my birthday. And it was brilliant! I was worried it wouldn't live up to the lion the witch and the wardrobe, but i honestly thought it was better. They're all obviously a little more mature, and it makes the characters (and actors) much more watchable I thought.
In other news I finally saw SGA Search and Rescue, and i would take many words to express my appreciation (or not in some parts), but over all I found it enjoyable. I also caught The Seed yesterday which whilst being a little cliche? maybe not cliche, but something like that?? - in parts i found it enjoyable, was shouting at the screen and everything :)
Whilst I've not been sitting the The Waiting Area of Doom, I've become addicted to Josephine Darcy's The Marriage Stone. It's a Harry Potter SS/HP story (WIP), with the cliche of them being forced into marriage, but in a kind of original way. It's safe to say I've become hooked and read chapter one through seventy in about five days I believe. Safe to say I couldn't recommend it highly enough!!!
Finally, Smallville tomorrow night! *dances* I missed it last week due to my birthday-type happenings so I've got two new episodes (however lame they may end up being, i intend to squee anyway, there's something about that show, i just cant seem to help myself)
Guess I'll have to go and find out what this episode is actually called and then find some fic to fix it....
Also, anyone know when the paper back version of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is out (in the UK), or if it is already? I'm hesitant to read my beautiful free and signed copy again for fear of getting it all dirty and stuff, and i cant afford another hardback version....
In other news, i did another exam today, just one left!!! *dances*
