Nearly up-to-date on my television viewing. I'm still a number of episodes behind on "The Borgias," but I have to be in the right mood for that one. I've broken up with "Game of Thrones" and "Castle." I should break up with "TrueBlood," but ... *shakes fist*

  • Uploaded a bunch of fics to Archive Of Our Own (AO3). Mostly recent TOS and AOS fics, but also some Buffy, Lord of the Rings, Firefly, Harry Potter, BSG, and my one Torchwood/Sandman crossover. I have one invite code, if anyone would like it.

  • Do any of you remember when I was trying to find story (couldn't remember if it was a book, short story, tv episode, or movie) where the main character is a time traveler and he's talking with a woman he meets in the past, and he slips up and says "World War I" and she's like, "You say that like there's a sequence of world wars" or something to that effect? This was like 4 or 5 years ago, and I didn't know half of you at the time, so I would honestly be surprised if any of you remember. And we did some brainstorming, but we never figured out where that came from.

    YESTERDAY, I FOUND IT!!!!! It's from the novel Time And Again by Jack Finney, which I read ... many, many years ago. I picked it up again the other day, and it dawned on me that that might be the source. AND IT WAS. I need to read that book again, since I clearly barely remember it.

  • Three rejections today, including SUNY Purchase. Gah!

  • So, the season 3 finale of TrueBlood. I was underwhelmed. )

  • Give me one reason I'm going to hell.

    Then post this request in your LJ, and I will tell you why YOU are doomed to eternal damnation.

  • I think my muse is back. So far, I've written 2,400 words about why Sam Kirk hates his brother. And Sam's only 12 years old at the point where I left off, so he has a ways to go. This is an interesting exercise for me, in any case, writing from the POV of a child.

    I've also written about 500 words of smut. For an entirely different story. Obviously. Trying to get that one finished for the [ profile] jim_and_bones party thing on the 26th.

  • My brother's in Kuwait right now, very jetlagged and not enjoying the heat. (*snerk* After insisting that Texas would prepare him for anything.) He's receiving some additional training before heading to Baghdad. *sigh*

  • Dropped my aunt and uncle off at the airport this morning. It was nice seeing them, though my aunt can be kind of fussy. She made my uncle get up at 5am, so he could drive her to Minneapolis so she could take photographs of the sunrise from the Stone Arch Bridge by the Guthrie. O_o

  • Briefish, minor spoilers for TrueBlood 3x10 )

    Oh, and I posted my big long (well, 7,000 words) TOS Spock/McCoy Fic of Doom yesterday: Down the Long Corridors of Air. Kirk went and stole a couple of scenes, the sneak.

    So, now I have about 200 words of Reboot!Uhura trying to get Spock to talk dirty, Vulcan-style. And I have a title for the fic where TOS!Uhura gets Christine Chapel into bed. And I need to start thinking about my [ profile] space_married fic. I know where it's going (wedding bells!) but I don't know how they're going to get there. There'll be a little angst because that's part of the prompt, but not too much. I hope.


    Orientation for my internship starts the day after tomorrow. Wow.

    - It's supposed to be really hot today and there's an air quality warning. Trying to decide if I should bike to campus, take the car and pay/search for parking, or say the hell with it and hope it cools down in the next few days. :P I kind of want to get out today anyway, since...I'm really craving avocados for some reason!

    - Will seems a lot happier since I put him on an all-canned food diet. He and Sophie get a can a day. I feel like a real asshole for not figuring that out sooner. Sorry, baby-cat.

    - Now I have 1,700 words of Scotty/Gaila romcom written! And I've figured out how to include Sulu. But not Chekov. He's like half Scotty's age and they work in different areas; I'm not sure why they'd interact at all. I want this to be an ensemble piece, but... And should Gaila call Scotty Monty? I know people have strong thoughts on fan-made nicknames. At least, they did in the Harry Potter fandom. O_o

    - I really watch too much tv.

    I love this show! I've only seen through episode ten, so please, so spoilers for the last two episodes in the comments! Could Buffy handle these vamps? )

    I don't know. See, I'm just not into vampires. Drinking blood is gross. (Not that I've done it, but it looks gross. Not to mention painful.) I have a problem with food and porn mixing, and blood drinking very often seems to be a kind of food porn. I want to like this show... )
