I. I'm reccing BSG fic over at [Poll #1520999]
shah_of_blah: (kara sunshine)
A few unrelated things:
1. First of all, the response to my last fic has been amazing!  You are all awesome and I will get to all of the comments eventually.
2. A friend just sent me this link, and it was pretty good, so behold: The Frakking Eulogy
3. If anyone is interested in reading some of my original fiction, I posted a short story here called "Subterranean."  Summary-ish bit: It looked like a dirt hole.  Glancing surreptitiously around him, Stephen carefully set one foot in the hole, his toes lightly pressing into the soil.  It felt like a dirt hole.  But Stephen had never experienced anything like this.  Could the dirt hole, then, be something extraordinary?  Stephen hoped not.  The whole affair was too messy for his liking.
4. I have a fic request for all of you bsg writers!  I've been tossing this idea around since the finale, and I don't think I can write it myself.  But I want to read it! Lots of it.  spoiler )

Hello all.  So it's no secret that original fiction is my one true love.  Or, if you didn't know that, I'm telling you now: original fiction is my one true love.  I don't post it online much (there's some, though, on fictionpress) as there never seemed to be much of an arena for it.  But, well, I'm taking a short story writing class, and am churning out drafts every week.  I've fixed one of them up into what I hope is a strong story.  And, horror of all horrors, I've posted it on an lj comm.  I'm still writing fanfiction, have no fear, but I'm a bit busy.  Here's one of the reasons.

Title: Because "Spiderman" is Copyrighted and Peter Parker is a Wuss Anyway
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: creepy!  Really, I freaked myself out getting into this character's head.
Genre: sort of supernatural, vaguely magical realism.
Disclaimer: not for sharing.
Word Count: about 1000
Note: the scene breaks delineate separate entries.
Feedback: love it!  Leave it over on the comm please.

Jenny thinks she knows everything about me.  She doesn't, but that's just fine because I know everything about her.

A few things, most of which are completely unrelated....
Word is that Katee Sackhoff's got the lead in a pilot called "Lost and Found" by the Law and Order guy. I'm not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, I'd rather watch this thing than Nip/Tuck. On the other hand, I strongly dislike Law and Order. And after putting myself through Bionic Woman, I'm just not sure how much this fangirl can take. So I sincerely hope that a) it's surprisingly good, or b) she moves on quickly to greater things. Otherwise I just don't know how I'll get my fix post-Battlestar! (Sad thing is, I'm mostly serious)

Does anyone here watch Chuck? I just watched the pilot (I am behind, of course) and it was quite entertaining. Still working my way through Doctor Who (2nd season--I miss Christopher Eccleston). Sometimes I think I watch too much TV. Or I watch it too intently anyway.

I wrote a short story! Yay! Haven't finished one of those in awhile. Fanfiction may be sparse now that classes are up and running, doubly so now that one of those classes has me writing a story a week. I did write a short fic though that's at the beta, so hopefully this well won't be too dry. I'm still working on the plot fic, but it's a bit stalled at the moment. I need to write about a character that I haven't got a great handle on, so that's taking some work. And some time. But it will come! Hopefully before 2009.

Last week I updated the VSDs after our longest between-diary break yet:
"My field tests against the Vampyrs had in no way prepared me for great blobby demons who like to remove kneecaps. Really, am considering writing an irate letter to Watcher's Academy recommending a change."
-Wesley: Cuppa Tea, Cuppa Tea...

And here ends the kind of pointless update.

Everybody who writes should read this essay on fanfiction and original fiction by [livejournal.com profile] mistful .  It won't take you long (unless you read exceptionally slowly) and it is really good.  And for me anyway, really true.  The thing is, I started writing original fiction long before I started writing fanfiction, and I sort of do both simultaneously although fanfiction is just so much easier.  So unless I have a deadline I never finish my original stories.  (Hooray for the composition class I'm taking!).  Anyway, the essay's really good, and [livejournal.com profile] mistful 's been published so she must know what she's talking about, right?

Fanfiction, Original Work and Marmalade

Some notable things:

1. [profile] sl_podcast has just posted the links and all that to the latest episode of the Strangely Literal podcast.  When Episode 49 of the podcast went online, my co-conspirator [profile] visualthinker11 sent me one VERY excited email because we were the subjects of the podcast.  And by 'we' I mean Oz, or rather our diary o' Oz from The Very Secret Diaries...on the Hellmouth!  In conclusion, SL has posted a reading of Oz's VSD and it is super exciting to listen to one's work read aloud by a complete stranger.

2. I miss BSG.  And it was only one week.  I'm very excited for Friday, but also a little bit worried.  On the one hand, I'll be watching on a real TV.  On the other hand, I'll be watching with my father and sister.  And the problem there is that they do not love BSG the way I do.  And they could care less about Kara/Lee.  My dad always refers to her as 'Starbuck,' possibly because he can't remember her real name.  This is not a good sign.  I have a tendency to spaz out, and while I always pretended I wasn't watching BSG when I was watching it on my computer at school, I kind of enjoyed the semi-privacy of my semi-clandestine viewing experience.  If that made any sense.
