Well, it only took four years, but there is now a first (very bad) draft of Sheppard's Eleven.

1. I head back to school tomorrow, and I'm kind of ambivalent about it, which is probably bad. I don't know. I'm not cut out for this 'real life' bullshit.

2. As for the last episode of SGA, I am firmly of the belief that they fly the city right back using the wormhole drive, and John thinks it's the COOLEST THING EVER and has a big(ger) crush on Rodney's brain.

I'm not that sad about it, really. SGA is dead. Long live SGA*.

* fandom, of course.

3. I have plotted out the scenes for the heist and started writing them out, though I can already tell that this will probably take a while. Anyway, enjoy this bit of fic:

A bit of fic )

Okay, so I'm considering first cleaning up the first section of the fic and posting that as part of WIP. Obviously, this has some benefits and some drawbacks.

On one hand polishing and posting section will give me a break from the fic-writing and also some real, tangible feedback to bask in as well as actual pressure to finish it without sort of just giving up which I have been tempted to do on and off for a while.

On the other, I know for a fact that I won't be able to give my full attention to fixing up this section, because half my brain will still be in writing mode, and I know that I won't go back and fix things later because once something's posted, it tends to be 'done' in my mind as well. So it won't be as good as it could be.

I dunno. I just keep going back and forth on that.

4. In other news, all my fic has been posted to AOOO. All, um, 99 stories I'm willing to admit I've written.

5. I don't think I'll ever get over just how much I adore The Sandman. Ever.

6. New BSG is coming, and while I will attempt to enjoy it, I fear that it will repeat all of the crappiness of 4.0. Just as long as they stop pretending that dangling the final cylon in front of us is a substitute for compelling plot, then I will survive. (It seems as though there will be more Zarek, this time around. I can't wait to watch him stir shit up.)

1. Vid rec! To Touch The Face of God by [ profile] destina. It's just a stunning ode to the U.S. space program, and it's about human yearning and human struggle and human sacrifice. I used to have a poster of a space shuttle hanging over my bed, no joke, and I wanted to work for NASA, and this reminded me of why. Seriously, go watch it.

2. Saw Across the Universe, finally. It was about what I expected. The musical sequences were pretty good. The stuff in between was not so much. The story was hacked together badly, and it seemed to be ripping off Rent a bit too much. In order for it to be successful, I think it would need to distance itself from the Beatles mythos, and it didn't.

3. I have spiffied up my laptop, just in time for me to not use it so much during the school year. Whoops.

4. The US seems to be failuring during these closing days of the Olympics. Except for the women's soccer team. They're still badass.

5. I am not very surprised by the cancellation of SGA, and its subsequent transformation into a direct-to-DVD movie series. It's probably (a) cheaper and (b) more lucrative for MGM, and SG-1's already done it.

1. It's practically flooding outside right now. Yay rainy season!

2. Enjoyed this week's SGA.
some spoilery thoughts. don't expect depth )

3. Here, have a bit of fic:
Do I even have to explain where it's from? )

4. Have an idea for remix that doesn't suck, but I know it will make it quite obvious that I wrote it. Fortunately, I don't actually care that much.

5. Horrific Algorithms midterm was horrific, but I made it far enough past the mean that I'm pretty sure I'm passing. The professor, however, is not pleased with the overall performance of the class and might make us all retake it. Which would be bad. And sad. And even more horrific.

6. Someone tried to find Open Your Eyes on [ profile] sgastoryfinders. I have arrived, fandom! I have arrived!

Man, has anyone else had that bit of cognitive dissonance where you're thinking, "My fic is awesome! I should be getting pages of feedback on this!" and also, "Why are people saying nice things about this? I fail as a writer!" at the same time?

Just me, then? Okay.

I still have so much homework to do. Stupid Algorithms and Econometrics.

As for SGA, I really want Nancy fic where she's awesome and kind of pressured into marrying John, but she's okay with it, because hey, he's not that bad a guy, and then their relationship falls apart due to John not being there and the way she realizes that this isn't really what she wants, it's what their parents want, and she leaves because it's better than staying. Someone want to write that for me?

Also, I heard there's some sort of football game going on, tonight? Anyone else know about this?

So, it's my turn at [ profile] ficcommentary, feel free to vote.


Nightvision got a makeover. Check it out.


I rather enjoyed my Thanksgiving. Yay. Ate lots of food, bought a hat and scarf on Black Friday, did lots of walking. Good times, good times.


I also watched inordinately large amounts of America's Next Top Model and Project Runway. DON'T JUDGE ME. YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO JUDGE ME.


In honor of "shippers don't like females of any kind in their slash stories", let's make more stupid generalizations!

Ooh, let me start. Het writers suck, because they write heteronormative crap! And they're all teenybopper shippers anyway.


Woohoo! Razor tonight!


Also, Joe Flanigan on his hair. Seriously.

House/McKay is OTP, bitches.

Okay, I don't think they'd like each other at first. In fact, they'd kind of hate each other. House is a medical doctor. Rodney is an incredibly annoying physicist. Together, they fight crime! There is no way their first meeting could go well. Especially when they start trying to one up each other on how smart they are, and Rodney starts insulting medicine by calling it a soft science and House starts insulting Rodney's mother because Rodney's third shoelace is loose or something.

But I think once they got over that point (though, knowing them, it would be a while), House would find Rodney's complete and utter lack of tact charming, and Rodney would admire House's ability to destroy the egos of the idiotic. Plus, Rodney would make House a really badass cane and House could translate some of Zelenka's more colorful phrases for Rodney to understand. The world would tremble in fear.

Of course, Wilson and John would be off to the side, sulking about how they're prettier. And quite possibly making out because it would be hot.

Also, I'm kind of in love with all of the people in [ profile] betteronvicodin who are way awesome. I am totally psyched about this fest.

So, I kind of, um, have a Rodney icon. shutupshutupshutup

Also, you know how John/flying is totally OTP? Rodney/physics is also my OTP.Because seriously, his nerdiness is so cute.

Anyway, yeah. Mary McDonnell is really kick ass, because she makes jokes about throwing Cylons out airlocks, admits that the writers of the show have a hard time writing certain issues because they're young and male, smiles and laughs a lot, and looks exactly like Laura Roslin in RL, which shouldn't be as odd as it is. But yes, she was cool and awesome and stuff.

So, I've been having a hard time writing at the moment, because most of my typing is reserved for code, and while I've been swamped with ideas, I'm too lazy to follow through.

Let's not talk about how not started with [ profile] remixredux I am at the moment.

House last night was, um, weird?

Still alive.

Still writing, mostly. I had this random House fic idea, and then I spent like an hour working on it instead of reading Farenheit 451. WHICH IS (A) BAD (THING), OKAY? Other stuff is updating slowly, because I'm really wary of fucking up my wrists. Fucking up my wrists is bad.

The SGA fandom is trying to steal my soul. The fic is so pretty. Plus, the show really sucks. In funny ways. On the other hand, Rodney is so my dork boyfriend.

Have been sick for a bit. Just a cold, but still really annoying.

ETA: Fixed stupid wording above.
