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?
