On the road again...  
I've got to post a fic on Monday (my twice monthly posting) and I've got nothing written so far. Instead I'm in the train on my way to Copenhagen to enjoy the evening with [personal profile] lysanatt and stay the night until I'm heading to Scotland tomorrow. Then Friday, three crazy people leave Scotland to meet up with two equally nuts Welsh. And we get to be a bad influence on each other until Tuesday!

Thankfully we're all from one or more corners of various fandoms, past present and future (don't ask) so I'll get time to work on something for you people, they will encourage me to. The idea started out as royal fantasy, but has now decided to become a space opera.

Re-reading old fanfic (sentinel edition)  
I got to re-reading some very old Sentinel fanfic - as in back when it was a very active fandom. My history with the fandom was very short, mostly because I came into it via Stargate SG1. SG1 fandom had annoyed me at this point and I thought the Sentinel fandom would bring enough change. Nope, not really - too many of the same faces XD

Well, re-reading a decade and a half to two decades later, there's always a risk. A risk of the story you recall as being quite good turns out to be less so.

It's partly that the stories that I re-read weren't exactly brilliant, but another reason is the fact that Sentinel wrote a huge chapter of the book on cliches and tropes. I think some of the things that hit me were:


  • Everyone's straight except for when it comes to THAT one guy (both Jim and Blair are portrayed as 130% straight and struggle to come to terms with being GAY for that one dude - seriously - it's like bisexuality didn't exist in the 90s...)

  • The amount of purple prose is downright hilarious! (A ton of it is possibly down to it being from a time when ff.net was used a lot... it's definitely a different way of writing fic XD)

  • Non-con/dub-con - seriously - it's not like I haven't read and written my share of biological fuck or die stories (especially in Star Trek with pon-farr or for that matter, SG1 - aliens made them do it/sex pollen etc) but seriously - having Jim go caveman (another sentinel trope) on Blair's ass (literally), screwing him and afterwards lamenting that he has hurt his partner to only have Blair accept it because it's a guide/sentinel thing... I've never been a huge fan om non-con, or for that matter dub-con and reading 5 out of 6 stories where this is actually the outcome... yeah, not my pot of tea

  • LUBE, PEOPLE, LUBE. If it's the first time having anal sex, spit isn't going to be enough, and if you choose to go with it anyway, there'll be either tearing or at least VERY much discomfort afterwards.



I know it was a different era for fanfic, but still - I almost regret re-reading the fics, they were better in the shadows of my memories. It's not a complaint about one specific author, because I realized it was a trend in the type of fic that was written during this time and also probably something that the writers liked exploring.

I have to wonder why...  
whenever I intend to start using DW again, I hit pollen season and do nothing but go to work, come home and crash on the couch, move to the bedroom, sleep like there's no tomorrow - rinse and repeat XD

I personally can't wait for mid May (not just because I'll be heading to Kendal for an extended weekend with lovely people (three of the four I only see once every year in spring for this getaway)) but it also normally means the end of pollen season for me (those of you who have trouble with grass and other shit, you have my utmost empathy.

Now, back to plotting the x-men trek fusion *eg* and figuring out what on earth I'm writing for the xmen writing project that I set myself - I'm posting for that on April 15th, better get some ideas going!

Current mood  
This is how I feel currently about spring and about trees:


I feel like shredding my face and my eyes several times through the day. If anyone else says to me: "Isn't it lovely, it's getting warmer and the trees are going green." I. Will. Kill. Them. With. Fire!

This has been brought to you from those of us who are allergic to the fuckers. Don't ask us how lovely spring is. Just hand over the tissue when we start sneezing. At least I'm not allergic to grass. Those who are allergic to both tree pollen and grass pollen? You have my deepest empathy.

General update on... well, everything XD  
I hope you are all doing well.

What are you all working on? If anything?

I'm quietly enjoying posting the twice-a-month X-men stuff - still having far too much fun with AUs *g* - I have a GDoc with ideas - and it keeps growing O.o - though one has been pulled back out of it. Not because I don't like the idea after all, but because I realized that it might actually have more than just that one scene, short-story idea that the whole project is based on.

Even with the 2014 writing project where I wrote and posted one fic-a-week, I realized I didn't do any sci-fi - as in, space sci-fi - which is sort of strange, because it's one of my all time favourite genres.

Well, some time this year that will probably change, because I've been bitten by a Star Trek fusion bunny for x-men - not that it hasn't been done before, but I haven't done it before and the more I went over the idea in my head, the more plotlines turned up.

So, aye, gonna write a trekfusion this year XD

The big-ass Warehouse 13 fusion is still in beta.

I might also dig an old actual Star Trek fic out of the drawer - it has needed editing so hard that I've kept just stuffing it back in, but I sort of miss the idiots (Kirk, Spock and Bones). So I might just go back and have another go at it at some point.

Apart from work, of course, which is bonkers as always (I do love my job, but currently we know we're moving the store physically farther into the gut of the Uni (good thing, don't get me wrong, but MOVING XD ) - and of course because it's the university, getting a schedule is like pulling teeth (actually, pulling teeth is probably easier).

I have so many projects currently it's not even funny - arts and craft, writing, gutting the kitchen cabinets and re-ordering them (that's on for tomorrow) - and I've been playing pokemon go since it was released last year - and having a blast for the past 24H as new pokemons were released *g*

I hit the corner of the big 40 this year (still feel mentally like a twenty-five-year old with the sens of humour of a twelve year old - five years on the weirder days *g*).

Planning for being creative in the new year  
So, as always I have vague plans for the new year fannish wise, and I always feel like I stumble straight into the first week of the year without anything set in stone. This year, however, I think I'll adjust my 2014 fic-a-week project to a twice-a-month fic - and do like Night Vale does - post on the 1st and 15th of the month.

I'm fairly sure I'll stick with my usual OTP of Charles and Erik and doing it every other week will allow me to actually do it without killing myself.

And it'll allow me to spend some time on the arts and craft that I have fun fiddling with as well while still getting something written.

Plan is for stories between ~1K-2K *shushes people* while I know that some of them will grow fangs and drag themselves into longer ones, I want the stories to go where they want - and with the fic-a-week I was limited to being done in a week - no matter where real life tried to derail it. This time, I might adjust for 1st/15th plus minus days depending on real life - can't always be sure that I have access to post on those days, though I'll do my utmost to hit the dates.

And I'm not getting into how sucky 2016 has been to us, how many people we've lost, Anton Yelchin, Carrie Fisher (and her mother as well, today), Alan Rickman and so many others. Not to mention Brexit and the joke of the American election (and I mean that, what the everloving fuck happened there?). So here's to 2017 being better, we'll be stronger, we'll fight the shit that hits us (or the fan). And we'll bloody well be creative in any way, form or shape that we can.

Almost packed  
And almost ready to head off to the Scottish lowland - well, pit stopping in Copenhagen to have fun with friend :D

I've got this and that to do during the vacation, a little fic, some photos that need dealt with (I take FAR too many when out and I've still got a ton of photos from Vienna Zoo that need seen to).

So here's to you all having a good time and I'll keep you up to date with what weirdo stuff I might get up to over xmas.

And I can't be the only one looking forward to the Assassin's Creed movie, ammarite?

And how did it hit sunday so fast?  
I'm back *eg*

I'm actually going to try to post here more often. Why? Because, like someone on tumblr said, we sort of miss the LJ/DW format.

So I'm going to keep throwing shit into the blog again *g*

What you might ask? Well, tonight it'll be a bit of real life stuff.

Maybe tomorrow night it will be fannishly related. I've finally managed to edit the Warehouse 13 fic and have handed it over to butterynutjob to get their judgement. After 51-52K words, I have no real feel for if the story works or not. The brain has turned to mush at this point.

I have, however, a bunch of ideas/prompts etc in my GDocs and I'll probably unload them over here as a wip platform.

We'll see if I can keep that one going this year. I've tried for ages to get back to this blogging format but my brain often refuses to agree on getting anything done.

So, aye, that's what I'm aiming for. So a little fannish, maybe, tonight. I've been making boxes for the gifts I'm giving that are too small for my taste (one is a gift certificate, the other is a refurbished smart phone). So one box is now pitch black with team mystic's logo on it while the other one looks like one of the journals/books from Gravity Falls.

Speaking of Team Mystic - my own team as well - I've been enjoying Pokemon Go and still am. Caught a pikachu with a xmas hat today *g* - I wonder if they keep the hat when you evolve them?
