Writer's Block: Doppelganger Week

Feb. 1st, 2012 | 08:37 pm

Who is your look-alike?


I get told that I look like Katherine Heigl often enough that there's probably something to it. What do you think?Collapse )

A singing demon told me I was supposed to save the world, and it all just sort of snowballed...

music: the xx ~ infinity

I have a sudden influx of new readers to Percy Weasley: Rogue Demon Hunter over at FFN (which I'll confess to rarely checking, except to use as a kind of 'test market' for fic that I'm not sure about). That means someone, somewhere must have recced the fic, which is always lovely. Thank you, whoever you are, if you happen to see this. I do intend to finish it, I'm just notoriously slow at finishing long works-in-progress, on the order of years rather than months. So, be warned.

In other news, I've acquired an iPad, which is not helping my Pinterest addiction, but has provided me with a convenient way to read books and magazines something I haven't bothered to do much these last few years.

Writer's Block: Dress up your Pet Day

Jan. 14th, 2012 | 10:47 am

Heh. Poor little buddy. (He actually seemed to like the squirrel costume, apart from the hat. It was made of some sort of soft fleece and he is a wuss when it gets cold.)

Post a photo of your pet in costume.

Now I'm stuck, living out that night again

music: little hurricane ~ haunted heart

I have not been posting at all lately. I need some structure I think to keep me posting regularly, otherwise all my writing energy goes into plugging away at my WiPs (well, and Pinterest -- let's be honest).

I have, on the other hand, been writing. I'm better than halfway through Iteration, which I've decided to just knock out entirely before I go back to Percy Weasley: Rogue Demon Hunter and deal with how much I hate chapter 7. :(

In the meantime, here's a bit from right in the middle of Iteration (a.k.a. the Star Wars EU AU that I always hoped someone else would write so I wouldn't have to), just to prove to myself that I haven't wussed out again on this whole fandom thing. I do love this fic, despite that it's entirely self-indulgent and mostly written for an audience of one. It's also threatening to be novel-length, so there's that, too.

"Underestimating Mara was never a problem for either of us. One might even go so far as to say that’s what got her killed..."Collapse )

I am so half-ass at fandom, but apparently everyone is moving themselves the hell over to Dreamwidth so I finally got off my ass and imported my whole LJ account over there. Will it make me post more? Who knows.

Also, on a mostly unrelated note, I almost never watch karaoke-talent shows, i.e. American Idol, but I'm damned if the finalists on The X-Factor aren't exceptionally talented. I'm impressed.

Swing your sword!

music: college football gameday!

I'm watching Iowa State vs. K-State (all tied up at 7-7 right now*). I'm a bit of an Iowa State fan for no other reason than the fact that it's my personal head-canon for The Lone Gunmen that Jimmy Bond played his college ball at Iowa State (and was part of the 1992 Cyclones team that upset soon-to-be national champs Nebraska). I do love a good underdog story.

But, mostly, I wanted to post this:



I think Paul Wulff got a really raw deal in Pullman, but I have to admit that hiring Mike Leach is the kind of flashy, ballsy move Wazzu has needed to pull for a long damn time. Well played, Bill Moos. Love the audacity. You're my favorite, even if you did spend the better part of a decade or two in Eugene.

*UPDATE! Iowa State up 13-7. Nice!

Oh, my heart. My Cougs beat Arizona State tonight, just when I'd been ready to give up hope altogether. I actually teared up a little at the win, which hasn't happened since they won on my wedding day during a dark, dark season when they did not win very much at all. (It was like they did it just for me! ;) Connor Halliday ILU, please stay healthy.

No, that's 'wookiee' with two ee's

music: florence + the machine ~ dog days are over (yeasayer remix)

I guess it says something about Star Wars and its fandom that there are a whole bunch of databases dedicated to exceptionally dry and detailed specs of made-up ships, weapons and technology -- it's like Jane's meets the begats -- but no amount of googling seems able to provide me a reliable, intelligible or easily find-able timeline that addresses which characters did what when, and, most importantly, why. People do things for reasons, FFS. These characters don't exist in an emotional and logical vacuum. They don't just all suddenly decide to show up at the same place for no reason (I hope?).

Maybe I've just gotten spoiled by other fandoms. The Harry Potter fandom had elaborate reader's guides on everything, up to and including how many times certain characters touched one another, the supposed hidden meanings in hair and eye color, and how comma placement was a clue to who would wind up with who romantically by the end of the series -- all complete with footnotes, disputations and references to great works of literature. They were often deeply sad and wildly wrong, but this information existed in a series of easily searchable databases. Don't even get me started on The X-Files. Hell, at one point all the shooting scripts for Buffy and Angel were easily available online. How does this information not exist for Star Wars, which pre-dates them all by at least a couple decades?

(Am I really going to have to put on a bra and make-up and go to the public library to check out a book I didn't even like in the first place? Damn it.)

music: the wailin' jennys ~ heaven when we're home

I keep seeing that 'WiP title and first line' meme around on my friends list. My first reaction was, "Like I need to play with more works-in-progress..." But after taking a second look, I realized I have a few that are shareable.

Excluding my long-running (should that be 'half-published?' oh dear) works-in-progress, here are a few:

The Comeback Kid (The Lone Gunmen): Even after all this time, Jimmy still got the yips.

Riddles of the Sphinx (Harry Potter): Albus had eyes on her, even here. How maddening.

Romeo and Ethel the Pirate's Daughter (Star Wars EU): It only took two days for Mara to decide that she really hated Bowre.

Conception (SG-1): The Book of Origin taught that children were to respect, revere and, inevitably, replace their parents.

The Suicide Blondes Book Club (Veronica Mars): Let's face it, the blonde cheerleader is always the first one to die.

The Pharaoh's Daughter [working title] (Harry Potter): Helga was born from the river, a child of rushes and weeds.
