Because jerib_78 did it...

Mucking the stables. In other words, fic projects. In no particular order...

  • apocalyptothon fic. Continues apace. Over 4000 words and counting.
  • random_urges ficathon assignment. Will start that when I'm done with apocalyptothon story.
  • BlitzFic. Spike and Dru during the London Blitz. I started this one ages ago. Then Firefly ate my brain.
  • "Crumbling Down" Spuffy fic, based on the song by John Cougar. I started this for Totally Obscure, but it's only got two sentences. I may abandon it.
  • The Ghost!Spike/Fred fic I began many moons ago. Another one that got started with a teeny little plot mouse and didn't go anywhere.
  • The Jayne/Zoe H/C...thing. It's got nearly 1600 words. I have no idea where it's going.
  • The moviequoteminis fic I started WAY back when and didn't get done before the deadline. Spike, Angel, and Illyria watch "House, MD." Alcohol is involved.
  • The psych_30 Jayne fics. I've started one. I may renounce my claim, because I don't really have anything for it. Jayne's a pretty simple guy; he's not a bundle-o'-issues like Mal is. I may sign up for my own comm (7virtues7sins) instead. Much easier.
  • The rework of "Reward." I may just leave it as is. I also need to post it and "Mustard Seed" up at themustardverse.
  • Spike/Illyria, post-"Gift." Another one I've started and never finished because I have no idea where to go with it and something shiny distracted me.
  • I signed up for some workshop or other at writercon that I need fic for. I still don't know if I should write something new for it or send them something I've already done. Maybe one of the above projects would work...

Yikes.

Now, those are just the fanfic projects. I'd like to write something original again; that would be cool. I wonder if I could revamp the Kitten!Cuddler!Jayne fic into something that would still work. That fic is funny because of who Jayne is; it would take some character development to get the same oomph out of it if it was original!fic. I'm not really sure I have anything else I can rework, but I may look into it.

Those also aren't counting what's in the Plot Bunny Hutch or the Smuggling Space.

In other news, I've written over 18,000 words (published) this year, as well as revamped the BeagleFic into OriginalFic. I've got 5,600 words in active WIPs, plus a little over a thousand words in a finished fic that I can't publish until the middle of next month. I guess that's not bad, overall.

Well, first things first. And that would be the apocalyptothon fic. *cracks knuckles*

Meme-age!

Gakked from bastardsnow after going to his LJ from a list of attendees at writercon's website. Yes, I'm a big ol' stalker...

Anyhow, no surprises here:

You scored as Socially Conservative Republican. Social conservatives share a belief in traditional morality and social mores and the desire to preserve these in present day society, often through civil law or regulation. The government should use its influence in the public square to support traditional family values.

I had a tie-breaker question involving abortion and the Kyoto protocols, because I scored 100% on both "Socially Conservative Republican" and "Pro-business Republican." Go, me!

American Idol...

*types as I watch*

You know, Elliot and Kat are good. They can sing. I wouldn't take that away from them at all.

That being said...they don't do a thing for me and never have. Bland vs Bland. For the briefest moment, I thought Kat was going to do "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" a capella, and was terribly disappointed that she didn't. *sigh* It would have been a gutsy move and made it REALLY special. Ah well. It was nice. And the red shoes were a cute touch. I wonder if there's going to be a backlash against her this week because, honestly, she should have been gone last week and Chris's fans are very unhappy.

The fact that Bruce Springsteen allowed Taylor to sing "Dancing in the Dark" is teh awesome, and he brought it home for us. I <3 him. So very much. My theory that they were going to sandbag him this week was (thankfully) wrong. "You Are So Beautiful" was absolutely gorgeous.

Shave, Ryan. Muppets can't get away with the scruffy look.
