I... still haven't decided what I think about the SN s6 premiere. I think I approve. Thinky-thoughts (and David Paetkau fanboying) under the cut. )

Unrelated to Supernatural:
The Plan To Keep ‘The Event’ From Losing Altitude, Plus Questions Answered (spoilers for the pilot). Tl;dr: They're rerunning the pilot tonight (you should watch it!), and they will actually answer questions, so no worries that it'll be like Lost in that regard.
Lauren Lee Smith and Tara Spencer Nairn join season two of 'The Listener' -- Of note: "13 new episodes are being shot for season two in and around Toronto until February of 2011." AKA Season 2 is really happening, you guys! \o/

So much homework, dear sweet baby Jesus so much homework, but I'm not suicidal anymore. (It occurred to me that the fact that my hormone levels were bottoming out last night probably didn't help matters, then, either.) Off to go do some of that homework now. With friends, so it's actually going to get done!

But first, news! The judge signed my order today! From the record on the Internet: "ORDER TO CORRECT GENDER DESIGNATION SIGNED 9-13-2010." Yay! XD I assume they'll probably be sending me a copy in the mail.

Other things I'm going to be getting in the mail: Dexter in the Dark, She's Not There, and SN s5. And Sam finally returned my Seeker s1 to me today (and I forgot it at work, haha). :)

So excited for Thursday. I've never been this excited for Career Fair before. It's amazing what nice clothes can do. It's like magic.

Oh, and it seems like every religious organization on campus set up a table next to the sidewalk between Walker and Couch today. It was like a religion gauntlet. "Have you heard of Paradigm?! :DDD" YES OMG IT'S MY FIFTH YEAR, I WOULD HAVE TO BE DEAF, BLIND, AND DEAD NOT TO HAVE HEARD OF PARADIGM. Still not interested, kthx. >_< Thankfully, I survived. I'll have to find a new way out of the building if they're there regularly. I'm not entirely sure they appreciated my presence anyway. "Are you interested?!" "No." "...Well, at least he's honest." Sorry, you guys, there's just only so many of you I can be polite to at once, especially when I'm having a week like this. Try again one at a time and I'd be happy to deliver your flyer to the recycle bin for you.

1. As you can see, I have finally updated my 15. That's been a really long time coming (...understatement), so you should go check them out. As always, if you know who made any of the ones that lack proper credit, let me know.

2. I bothered [livejournal.com profile] clex_monkie89 and [livejournal.com profile] sashataakheru on AIM last night and think I finally have a suitable plot for the WC bodyswap fic. Which is good, because it's extraordinarily appropriate for my first prompt on [livejournal.com profile] writing_game this board, "extenuating circumstances", but I couldn't write that until I'd worked out several large promblems (like not knowing what caused the bodyswap). So, I can write now!

2b. Except that I have loads of homework. Argh. I hope I'll find that sufficient motivation to actually get some homework done.

3. Unfortunately, the WH13 fic is not going so well. Sigh. But at least I'm not on a clock for that one.

4. Speaking of fic with deadlines, oh god the SN/QL. *headdesk* OP of that prompt, if you're reading this, I AM SO SORRY. D: I will finish that fic. One day. Hopefully soon. I will. Honest. DDD:

5. I watched the Psych finale yesterday  morning. <3333 Now all I've got left to catch up on are Dark Blue and Happy Town. (And while I'm on the subject of TV, how disappointed am I that Lone Star and The Event are in the same timeslot? VERY. I mean, obviously, Event is going to have to take precedence, but still. It saddens me.)

6. I went back to TO and the Werelist for the first time in about five years today (technically, I'd been back at TO a couple years ago to update my gender on my profile, but I didn't stay long). Actually remembered my passwords, even. My Werelist account had been deleted, but I made a new one. Hadn't realized how much I missed all those guys. It's good to be back.

7. Saw Toy Story 3 for free at Meacham on Friday night. Such a happy-making movie. \o/ :DDD *love*

Now, time for lunch, then homework, then fic. *nodnod* We'll see how well that works out.

\o/

1. Dexter is Delicious came out the other day. I wish I'd known sooner, I'd have preordered it! Oh, well, I fixed that. It'll be coming soon. :)

2. MAINTENANCE RANDOMLY CAME AND FIXED MY A/C. IT IS NOT ARCTIC!COLD IN MY ROOM ANYMORE. Warranted caps are warranted. Several times, I've made soup or popcorn mostly to keep warm, that's how bad it's been. (I'd have contacted Maintenance myself, but I thought I just couldn't work the thermostat. I'm still not sure I can work the thermostat, but IT'S NOT COLD ANYMORE YAY.)

3. Holy shit WC finale. I don't even. *flails*

4a. Well on my way to figuring out the perfect set of fictional cursed artifacts to use in my WC SP bodyswap sequel. Sasha or anyone else who has knowledge of ancient Egypt, want to recommend me a good pharaoh? Or "things you might find in a pyramid"? Or just hear the ideas I'm working with so far and make sure they make sense (in a "there are no polar bears in the Antarctic" kind of way)?

4b. Also made progress related to the artifact for my WH13 transfic. I was all set to have to give up and use the same or a similar artifact for both of these, but this turned out to work out better if it's not even Egyptian (unfortunately; I have a pharaoh all picked out if that changes!), so I guess that's good. (Although I still keep confusing this and the above. *sadface* That's what I get for plotting more than one fic with a similar plot device at a time.) I just have to figure out whose it was and what, exactly, it is. And I know that doesn't sound like a whole lot of progress, but you'll have to trust me that it is. ;)

5. In less happy news, I have so much homework. It is going to be horrible. D: Sigh. (I already had to miss the Psych finale, the Terriers premiere, and two hours of Dark Blue yesterday just for one class worth of homework and because I couldn't find an open TV. And these are projects. School, gtfo my life plz. I've had enough of you.)

ETA: Check out my 80 points worth of WC fic over at writing_game. I do believe that's a new personal best. By over ten points. *bows*

"I hacked history!" has got to be one of Leverage's best lines ever. XD

In other news, I hope this board at [livejournal.com profile] writing_game goes on forever and ever (read: I'd at least like a warning before it closes, kplzthx). My epic plan, it is epic. I ended up switching some prompts around, and not writing Monsters fic for the one I'd planned to, but I'm still having bunnies, so yay. (I would have written more today, but I made the mistake of reading a very intense collarkink fill this afternoon that really stuck with me and ruined me for all my stories until a few minutes ago.)

Now, fic-wise:

1. The MTF!Neal verse-thing (lol idek what it is) unexpectedly grew something approaching a plot tonight while I wasn't paying attention. Not sure whether this is good or bad. I think I'd trade that in to just know her name, but what can ya do. (Besides, I'm hardly one to talk -- I didn't know my own for a solid few months post-social-transition. But then, that annoyed me too, so at least I'm being consistent?)

2. Monsters-verse has developed the levels of angst probably everyone but me saw coming. (Although, really -- even the dog is angsty?! That's just wrong. My head is a scary place sometimes, I tell ya.) Now I need to just, y'know, actually write it down. *nodnod*

2b. Spoilers for my fic 'He Who Fights Monsters'. )

3. If "dialogue-only WC zombie apocafic" sounds like something you'd enjoy, you should know I posted just such a drabble yesterday at writing_game. Turns out it worked better for that prompt than Monsters did. And it makes me laugh. XD

TV stuffs (WH13, Happy Town). )

1. USA, stop trying to kill me! BN and RP. )

2. Anyone know where I can find a streaming or direct dl link to this past Tuesday's Warehouse 13? Please? )

3. Belated Degrassi love. )

4. Most importantly atm, because I can't resist a good self-pimping opportunity, I've come back from behind and started kicking ass and taking names over at [livejournal.com profile] writing_game. If you're a WC fan, you should go check out my new fics over there. Currently I've posted eight of them -- three in the SPverse. Next up is a futurefic, and I'm also planning more MTF!Neal and hopefully a Monsters sequel. Most or all of them will be xposted eventually, but I've been seriously slow on making posts these days, so I can't promise they'll be up any time soon.

5. Dark Blue. )

P.S.: That QL/SN commentfic I've been working on? I flaked on it, and then I just plum forgot, and arghh, idek why I can't finish the thing. But I will. I will. *determined*

There's longer posts I've been meaning to make, but instead, I'll make this short one.

Small things (school, Fair loot, Day Break). )
  • Biggest news: I have to go to court after all. My buddy Mr. Guy must have been mistaken. ): Shirl, the woman from the court who told me so, first gave me the option of 9/1. A Wednesday. I'm thinking "holy heck, if they make me go down on a Wednesday again...". And then she suggests 9/3 (Friday, two weeks from today). So alright then, Shirl. The third it is. At least it's not a Wednesday. I may even be able to find someone besides my parents to get me back down there, seeing as that's Labor Day weekend. Here's hoping.

    BN, RP, TZ )

    Speaking of TV, Is FlashForward Heading to Starz? I certainly hope so. You can always find it online, after all, someone just has to make more first.

    And I'd like to take this moment to pimp the Neal Caffrey Is In Your 'Verse Making It Awesome fest (with which I am unaffiliated, but it's fabulous). You can also have this hilarious clip of Matt Bomer on Leno.

    Short version: All my shows are awesome and fun. I had to strategize to get all my Tuesday shows in yesterday (watched Degrassi in WC and WH13's timeslot, then Covert Affairs, then the WH13 rerun, then the WC rerun), but it was well worth it.

    Long version under the cut. )

    Shows, I love you. Keep up the good work.

    Part 2 of this post, to include BN, RP, and TZ, coming Friday.

    3. Anyone see the supposed trans character on Degrassi tonight? I, uh, must have watched the wrong Degrassi or something. Idek. Halp? ETA: This explains my problem -- TeenNick decided to air the last of s9 first, so they're behind Canada for a few days. Meaning I didn't watch the wrong thing and Adam is coming, I just have to be patient.

    4. I'm working on a SN/QL crossover for comment_fic. I'm partway in and I need your help! Question: What do you suppose God would like to say to Sam Beckett? I mean, obviously Sam has questions -- how should I answer them? (Pre-QL-finale, fwiw. But I could be persuaded otherwise by a particularly good suggestion or two.) Seriously, even if you don't know QL at all, you can just suggest God-type conversation topics, they might help. *hopeful*

    5. ...Uh, I just wanted a #5. Here, have the WC s1 gag reel.

    Still sick (Mom thinks I have strep, arghh), but dude, my shows. YOU GUYS. <3

    1. White Collar. Spoilers for 2x1. ) (ETA: I just found out they called this episode "Withdrawal". Fantastic double-meaning title is fantastic.)

    2. Covert Affairs. Spoilers for the series premiere. )

    Tl;dr: Well done, USA. Now keep it up for Psych, BN, and RP and you will have one happy fan on your hands.

    ABC burned off the last of the Forgotten eps last night. I was surprised, really, that it turned out they'd decided to air the finale with the rest of the season and these other two now. I'd said before they started that that would be something a nice person would do, and these are TV execs, not nice people. :P No real spoilers; cut for length. )

    Seriously, this isn't normally the sort of show I'd get on DVD, but I hope they come out with it, because I want it pretty bad. <3 Show, I'll miss you.

    An update to this post:

    Got loads of help from ftm with the court-order thing -- including contact info for someone who actually knows what they're talking about, and a sample petition (why didn't I think of FTM_DFW to begin with? silly me). I'll probably wait to ask about the passport problem until after surgery, since I don't have any need for a passport in the forseeable future, anyway.

    And as far as the DART situation: DART board approves trans protections. \o/

    In other news, surgery in less than a week! And I downloaded BitTorrent again and got hooked up with more TV, so between that, Hulu, and MegaVideo I should be set for ages. :D (And thankfully BN and RP air on Thursday nights so I won't be totally stoned while watching next week's -- I'm so excited for those! Yesterday's were awesome: spoilers. ) Shows, you are too good to me.)

    Also looking forward to another TZ I haven't seen ("The Mind and the Matter") at 4:30am tomorrow. And then a party. Should be fun.

    The Event

    I need this show to be on the air. Now please, NBC. *flails*

    Although the fact that BuddyTV called it "the new Lost" kind of makes me cry a little inside. We all know what happened to the last show they called that. D:
    lonetread: (fandom)
    1. Four hours? In two weeks? TNT, you are too good to me. I love you. Now if you would just hurry up and premiere Dark Blue so I'm no longer in danger of death-by-squee whenever the previews come on, that would be great.

    2. I don't consider this a spoiler; cutting just in case. ) :D I can has this Leverage/WC crossover nao plz?! Do want.
    lonetread: (writing)
    Dangit, they're Jossing SP already (over at whitecollar_tv here; spoilers for Peter and Neal's backgrounds). Sad day. ): I totally almost went that route, too, instead of the GED, but that was so much harder, you have no idea. Sigh.

    In other news, this is made of win. From Craigslist, preserved for posterity @ [livejournal.com profile] christinareborn: To the Straight Guy at the Party Last Night. XD

    For more lols: I'm Comic Sans, Asshole. And less lols: Presidential Rumors (Bush vs Obama).

    Finally, I was randomly browsing my own old posts the other night, and I found a meme I'd like to resurrect and see what happens. Under the cut. )

    I also kind of want to do that "list fifteen characters and answer questions about them" meme again; anyone up for that?

    P.S.: Gah, now that I came up with that example of "Shawn, 3 & 7", I kind of really want to write it. A lot. Oh noes. 9_9
    lonetread: (Default)
    Oh my god you guys. Last week's LTM ("Beat the Devil"). Like I said, I really should be writing, but a) I made progress on my last section this morning with [livejournal.com profile] sashataakheru, and b) I figured that if I caught up, I'd have incentive to finish the fic before watching tonight's. (ETA: Which would have worked out better if I hadn't mistaken Eastern for Central, again. Seven. Not eight. Gah.)

    And I really should have watched it ages ago because JASON DOHRING YOU GUYS. Aka Josef Kostan from ML. Playing a psychopath. It was amazing. I may have nightmares.

    And I really want a LTM/ML crossover now. There's at least half a dozen ways that could play out, I want to see some of them! Pretty please?

    Also, spoiler. )

    P.S.: I wouldn't say no to LTM/Dexter, either. Just sayin'.

    P.P.S.: Oh, and that preview for tonight's? Holy cow. o_O

    I actually got Zera to admit that section 5 of SP sucks. This means it sucks A Lot. Definitely going to have to build in some time for rewriting. And I still haven't finished section 2! DDD:

    89% done, 110 words to go. Not counting section 5. Section 5, ihu. STOP SUCKING PLZ.

    Thank god for Amnesty Wednesday.

    For now, sleep tiems! (I'm gonna wake up at 4am to watch a TZ ep I haven't seen. It'll be good times. As it always is when I do this. Except for when whatever ep it is turns out to suck (e.g., "Lady Anne", "Mute", "Thing About Machines"), so hopefully this one'll be worth it. At any rate, I'll be able to check it off my list [24/156 to go!], so that's alright, then. :))

    ETA 6/13: Update. )

    1. Defection letter is in the mail.

    2, 3. Surgery. )

    4. Cut for TMI. )

    5. Finished another part of SP yesterday (and I really do need a SP tag, I think; I'll have to make one eventually), and started part 1. That's three down, two halves to go. I'm concerned I'll have too much for section 2 and not enough for section 1, but we'll see. At least, if all else fails, there's one last Amnesty Wednesday next week.

    6. Got billed by OU today for summer. That class I thought I was getting paid for? Apparently since I got course credit, I have to pay tuition. Since, naturally, that's $1600 I can't exactly afford at the moment, I was on the phone with the Bursar's office, and the registrar, and Continuing Ed, and at least three other people, before finally ending up... at the voicemail of the woman I've been corresponding with by email about this class to begin with. D: Yeah. So I just hung up and sent her an email; we'll see where that goes. Wish me luck on playing dumb and begging out of that. ETA )

    7. TV. )

    ETA: 8. Finished God Delusion. It was really good. You should read it. See a couple posts back for the download link.
