PEOPLE!!! 20 IS NOT ENOUGH!!!
And it made me cry so much, at the end where it gets relatively positive, which is just a ridiculously me thing to do. Its kind of amazing though.
I just wanted to share in case anyone on my flist was into this fandom and hadnt read it, its a must.
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)

ANYWAY... You know fandom has eaten your brain when... You're researching for an essay and start searching for journal articles on fandom and fan fiction. In my defense the essay is about how new media is infiltrating our every day lives and an article on fandom came up on one of my generic searches.
So from there i just kind of kept going, so far i've got five or so general articles, one on Harry Potter, one on Buffy (entitled 'Spike, sex and subtext' lolz), an Original Star Trek one about Kirk/Spock and a Janeway/Chakotay ST: Voyager one. If anyone's interested I'll probably stick up all the titles tomorrow or friday and i can email anyone a copy if they want.
I figure I only have journal access for another 5 months, why not get something useful out of it? :) Oh, if anyone wants any other articles I can search them for you if you wish! Just give me a full reference and I'll see what I can find!
