SJA fic recs!

Monday, May 31st, 2010

I was procrastinating on writing last night, puttering around to see if I could distract myself by reading fic. And I stumbled upon all these Sarah Jane Adventures fics by paperclipbitch! Mostly Clyde/Luke, but in an adorable teenage boy kind of way. (Note: I ::heart:: the Sarah Jane Adventures, because Sarah Jane is clearly a […]

Movie Review: Avatar

Monday, May 31st, 2010

::deep breath:: -I liked it. I have no great desire to see it *again,* but if there was ever a sequel I would be interested enough to google it. -I was sad that Trudy died. Was it really necessary for *both* supporting women on the human side to die? (While both of the supporting men […]

“make of this world a paradise”

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

Reasons why I love my job: because at a convention that was (at least on some level) about selling products, I had the joy of listening to a rambling discussion of life and love and creating the world you believe in. I was in the front-ish row, and it wasn’t really a note-taking kind of […]

Writing SPN fic: it’s a fun-for-all!

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

Lots of fandoms have some kind of “get out of jail free card” that you can use in fics when you need to explain something. A few examples: Stargate/SGA: it was an Ancient device due South: it’s an old Inuit method Harry Potter: it was a spell/a charm/a ritual/spontaneous wandless magic Doctor Who: it’s a […]

Out There, by jerakeen AI RPF AU / Doctor Who / X-Files Kris meets Neil, who introduces him to aliens (and his brother) in the form of the Doctor. Hilarious. Kris blinks at the man’s joyful reunion with bird food and shares a completely accidental eye-roll with the sheet-wearing brother of his apparently-not-that-crazy partner. By […]

So. I currently work with someone who is, in fact, older than me. I am not unaware of that fact. She has had many life experiences. Elder!wisdom is the new golden years, and I am totally on board with it. Yeah. Not so much in the other direction, though. I’m all, “Your experiences are valuable, […]

See, kids these days *can* entertain themselves without the internet!

The great iTunes transfer is underway! Luckily, we’re having trouble with our wireless internet tonight, or else it might never have happened! (Although the first thing I thought was, “How will I write my 750 words? I’m almost a penguin again!”) ETA: Penguin status achieved!

The “Here’s Your Sign” Post

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

So, Wednesday was awesome. Fun convention-type thing, held in a beautiful open building in the middle of an orchard. Really cool people, delicious food, free stuff, and absolutely no one questioning if you suddenly decided to spend the next hour sitting around in the grass outside. Hilarious moment of the day: About halfway through, I […]

Oh, Max. That’s why we love Dancing With the Stars. (Apologies for the non-timeliness of this post. Can I blame work?)
