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*

1. NCT )
2-5. Various other fics )

Anybody got requests? What should I be writing? What would you like to see?

P.S.: In RL-news, I have the sore throat from hell, and the return-trip-from-Cleveland post is coming within the next two days, I promise. Also, passport stuff. )

I have about a bazillion things that need addressing, so here goes.

Cut for length and spoilers. )

OK, I’m at almost two pages in Word – I hope my cyberethics essay can get this long! – so I should call it a day and go have lunch. Later!

Really should be sleeping, so I'll make this quick. Numbered list tiems, as I think of things.

1. Taylor, I will get those NCT notes to you. Honest I will. Maybe this weekend. Bother me about it if I don't, seriously. I want to get this done as much as you want me to. (Although SP might have to take precedence initially, because of the fest -- do you watch WC?).

2-4. RL )

5. Check out the fics at http://community.livejournal.com/intoabar/. They are fantastic. Particularly the WC/Firefly one and the WC/Dresden Files one. Go. Read. Enjoy.

6. I love everything Jonathon Coulton has ever written. At the moment, I'm particularly enjoying "Creepy Doll". A+.

So, here's the latest on my epics:

SP, and a WC fic rec. )

Sigh. My poor stories. I'm never doing this to myself again (he says, as his muses laugh hysterically and high-five in the background).

But in better news, I finished another Samverse drabble. (You see? Epics and I... really should just stay away from each other for good.) I'll spend Castle's timeslot picking out the best version and finding it a title, and have it posted shortly. So I can actually get something accomplished, at least. 9_9

So, I won NaNo. Progress on NCT for thirty days straight. One day my progress was hardly progress (hardly anything), but what the heck, I'm counting it.

And the progress actually helped! The last couple of days I listed out and numbered all the scenes I'm going to need (because the day before, I decided I'd write it in scenes rather than trying to make it one big huge epic. So, something closer to "Sam I Am", rather than what it was probably gonna end up like ("Motivations" [three chapters that ended up as one short one] or "Tracks" [still not finished], neither of which are happy endings). This means it's going to be a lot shorter than it really deserves, but hopefully that at least it'll get finished, because I've already written more parts of it than I thought I had. :)

Besides NCT, I've written a mostly-terrible MTF!Neal fic that I intend to rewrite at some point. Then of course there's that one's related RPF bunny that I hope to write as well. And besides all that, new Samverse is coming! I was inspired this morning, and it turned out crappily, but I've rewritten crap in that 'verse before and had it turn out all right, so we shall see.

I love my shows. I don't know how they all manage to be so amazing.

Lie to Me:

LTM (2x6, 2x7); cut for length. )

Castle: Equally great, although the three I finally caught up on (2x7-9) weren't my favorites. (ETA: Tonight's was fantastic, though, wasn't it? I was tearing up a little at the end there.)

White Collar: Show, I love you so much. "The Portrait" was TERRIFIC. I loved the end. <3 God, Neal just keeps getting more and more awesome. The whole thing with Kate broke me, though, omg. ):

Legend of the Seeker: I FREAKING ADORE THIS SHOW. CAPSLOCK DOES NOT EXPRESS HOW AWESOME IT IS. "Broken" really was kind of predictable for the most part -- e.g., the second "You don't want to know" came out of Cara's mouth, I remembered what that guy had said in "Denna" and went "Oh, god" out loud -- and yet, they still managed to make it the kind of awesome you can't look away from. And the parts I didn't see coming. Holy. Freaking. Cow. That is all. Already can't wait till next week!

And, Dexter: Holy crap, the end of "Hungry Man". I thought we'd already gotten our twist for the episode! Didn't see that one coming! Omg. Also, I love this show's writers, too. Awkward and creepy Thanksgiving dinner was awkward and creepy, and more-frequently-than-you'd-expect awkwardandcreepy at the same time! Trinity sure is a scary SOB, isn't he. Damn.

RL and NCT; cut for length. )
Gahhhh. Thank god for Thanksgiving Break. D:
lonetread: (facepalm)
Procrastinating --> LJ post that is probably going to end up being gigantic. Ah well. At least I'll finally be caught up and I can start getting better about making more smaller posts rather than fewer huge ones. Hopefully.

First, as always: TV.

Cut for Supernatural spoilers. )

Cut for vague FlashForward spoilers. )

Mentalist, after SN, sure had its work cut out for it. It was no contest, in comparison, but still very good even so. Jane is just awesome.

Cut for Legend of the Seeker s2 spoilers. )

Cut for length. )


NaNo, plus important news for anyone following my progress on NCT. )

Which will be finished once I say two more things. The first: I got two shirts from ThinkGeek and they are awesome. I Never Finish Anyth, which I've wanted for years; and Enough Social Interaction, which is just plain hilarious. :D

The second thing: more links.
15 Supernatural Crossovers We Want to See
13 Scariest Episodes of Supernatural
Awesomest candidate for TX governor ever
Annoying Food Jingles
BuddyTV article/interview re: the end of FF's "The Gift" (spoilers)
TV Shows Most Likely to be Cancelled
Creepiest Children's TV Shows
'Being Human' to be Americanized (please don't!)

OK, all caught up. Until next time!

Somehow, despite the fact that I only have one class and work, Mondays are always so exhausting. So I thought I'd update LJ while I relaxed.

TV (see the tags for a list of shows discussed under the cut) )

More name change madness. )

Finally, three four things:

1. The fire alarm has gone off three times in the past two nights, at 5:30am, 7:30am, and last night at 12:45am. THIS NEEDS TO STOP IMMEDIATELY. DX

2. NCT isn't dead yet! It's coming along, slowly but surely; the notes document (in which I'm including the actual text of the story as I write it, my notes and ideas about things to come that I haven't written actual text for yet, and massive chunks of text copied from (*cough*) websites (*evil grin*) (and in one case, from an interview on the DB site)) is about 9.5 pages long now. Which doesn't say a whole lot about the story itself, given that there's still flashbacks I need to (somehow) incorporate into the present timeline of the story itself, some bizarre tense changes I recently introduced that I now need to deal with by changing the tense of the entire story, and a(n Excuse) Plot I have yet to figure out -- but it's still promising! I have hope, anyway. :)

3. Links:
a) Obama's speech at the HRC National Dinner. <3333
b) Legend of the Seeker on DVD. :D
c) And the comment thread that explains so much about Twilight it's scary-yet-wonderful.

4. I finished "Wizard's First Rule"! Finally! All 820 pages of it. FTR, the show is better, but the book isn't half bad either. I don't think I'll read the next one, though, unless s2 is particularly awesome; books of that length are just too much of a commitment. For now, it's onto "Dexter by Design", and then finishing "American Gods".

Now, time for dinner and then skipping LTM and Castle in an attempt to figure out what on earth we're supposed to do for this Data Structures project. >_< Until next time!

Finally got around to rewatching the DB sf "Shot in the Dark" last night. Mostly managed to keep my mind on the plot this time, yay for me. (And if I had to consciously drag my mind out of the gutter to do it, well, that just proves how blatant the subtext is.)

Relatedly, I worked some more on NCT, and while I was checking out [livejournal.com profile] rounds_of_kink, I found a prompt that gave me another idea for it -- it was a Dean/Jaimie prompt, but I'm gonna borrow it anyway, because it's awesome and it improves what limited Excuse Plot my fic already had. To quote my notes: "Human trafficking is better than drugs." (*g* Yeah, I never thought I'd write that sentence, either.)

Oh, and speaking of DB, small spoiler for the DB pilot. )

Now, off to do homework, because I have Stats homework due Tuesday and a programming project due Thursday that's going to be absolutely horrible (not to mention being due the Thursday night after my court date on Wednesday; I'm trying to get an extension, but I haven't heard back yet ETA: Got the deadline extended until Friday night).
lonetread: (fandom)
(First, for reference, the fic I was talking about before has now got a working title, "Never Can Tell". So I may refer to it that way from now on, rather than "that... fic I'm writing... So Yeah.")

(ETA: Added a ton more links. Btw, every link except the first one, the last one, and the one marked as such link to TV Tropes. So if you want to avoid getting sucked in, you may want to just hover over them instead of clicking. :))

Dark Blue (spoiler-free due to incoherency) )

TNT's starting reruns next week at 11 pm Eastern; everyone should watch it!

In other news, I just had the biggest Someone Is WRONG on the Internet! moment and I'm too lazy to make an account just to reply to a months-old forum thread, but I have to get it out, so. I was looking for the LotS page on TV Tropes (looks like they just combine it on the SoT page) and I found an old forum thread in which someone complained, "It's a shame everyone has an obvious California accent; it's distracting." Sorry, but you Did Not Do The Research. Bridget Regan is actually the only American. Anyone else with an American accent is affecting it. Watch an interview or something, gah. Fail.
