I figured out icons!

LET ME SAY that I realize that the system is completely user friends and logical and  easy and all things like this.

Doesn't mean it doesn't make me ridiculously happy when it WORKS.

Also, because I adore this icon. It hits all my cute buttons. Thank you [livejournal.com profile] yenneffer , from whom I lifted it! 

I'm a tiger!...I cliiiiiiiimb.

I am not always a careful, timely, detail-oriented or on-the-ball human being. [livejournal.com profile] lavinialavender can tell you that I get distracted, and the best way to actually get me to do something (say, read excellent fanfic) is to gently remind OVER AND OVER again. Yes, nagging. Works really well.

To that end, I write myself lists. Hopefully I can get through everything in this post that I had written down. Life-and-Fandom Update!

--HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! Yes, this is hideously late, but I have the excellent excuse that I was in Japan. Yes, there were Internets in Japan, but also excellent Real Life folk to interact with and NOODLES so many noodles. I’m not a huge fan of seaweed or red bean paste, but friends (and speaking English, OMG, yay!) are always wonderful.

--FREAK CAMP ROCKS! And the first three Chapters are available here and getting a REALY awesome response. Lavinia and I knew that this story rocked (no false modesty here, man, especially as it’s currently my favorite romancy novel of all time, and I’m WRITING it, which seems wrong on some level) but it has ROCKED OUR WORLD to have other people agree and squee and generally be happy about our SPN AU monster.

--Because it’s so awesome, Freak Camp gets TWO notes, but it has also been NOMINATED for best AU and best darkfic at [livejournal.com profile] wicked_awards . NOMINATED FOR AMAZING. I may die in delight. The only thing keeping me from death here is that if I go, Lavinia will probably die from the shock and sadness, and then Monster By Any Other Name will probably not get finished, and that would be hideously sad. Yay!

--Aaaaand, wrote another SPN fic in the Dee universe here at [livejournal.com profile] deewinchester . Though to say that I “wrote” it seems to imply that I cranked it out last night, when really it was hanging around in my “You’re almost done with this fic” pile, I added two paragraphs, sent it to Lavinia and am DONE. It’s good (though rather disturbingly hard) to write something that is not about Freak Camp.

--Though I have been writing original stuff! Like, today, Kev started getting more back story. Poor kid, I have a feeling that something horrible is going to happen by the end of this story I started scribbling today. Something more specifically horrible than the anticipated death of his mother and the realization that his father is a complete sociopath. Hmmm. Not sure what yet.

I’m currently in love with [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge ’s Trace story. I love his writing, loved the original story that this story is evolving out of (maybe kinda stole it and put it in Word documents on my computer. Maybe.). Love it.

Hmmm, this post got longer than expected, and spawned itself, and generally did crazy things. But that’s okay. I do tend to ramble. And that list is done! Off to another…

 I feel that it has been ages since i posted. And it probably has been.

I have been doing a good deal of nothing. I went to Madrid (not as impressive as it sounds, currently living in Spain) trying to fly to Japan, and failed spectacularly (air traffic controller strike; rather a disaster). I then went to fairly boring place (though it was nice to actually go somewhere) and got sick and stayed home for the weekend. I have been watching Torchwood, season one (someday, there will be a post about that) and reading rather unhealthy amounts of fanfic by [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge . I mean, the fic is EXCELLENT, it's just the amounts that are unhealthy. Though, without fanfic I wouldn't be able to read almost anything in English, so maybe it's satisfying a double hunger.

In WONDERFUL news, [livejournal.com profile] lavinialavender and I have begun to actually post things on our [livejournal.com profile] freac_camp community. Just the Prologue and the Introduction polished up for our Supernatural AU so far, but this is ridiculously exciting because it feels that we have been working on this for a long time and it has been kind of eating my soul. In October I wrote about at least 25,000 words for Freak Camp. In November I know I wrote 50,000 words because I kept track for Nanowrimo. And now some of that work is finally coming to life. It's so intense but satisfying as well.

I feel like jumping up and down and shouting "Look! See! I have actually been writing things these last two months!"

Though I guess that is what this post is. YAY! WORDS!
