Dear Girl'friends',

Thank you for forcing me to see Twilight. Now, rather than admiring Jacob's shoulders from afar and faintly lusting after Kellan Lutz, I am actively seeking Twilight slashfic. Do you know what happens when teenagers who were never taught grammar try to write slashfic? No? Good. It's not pretty, I assure you. Now I'm going to have to write some myself. I hope you're pleased with yourselves. You'd better dig out the second DVD for me tomorrow too, or else there'll be trouble (and I'll hide all the chocolate).

Love and Hugs,


Dear Pogue!Muse,

Stop fucking with Reid's car, you're making him twitchy. Stop flirting with the pretty tattoo artist, you're distracting her. Stop trying to think in abstract nouns and long-winded metaphors. This fic is not actually about you.

Marginally less love,


Dear Gen Kill!Muse,

Shut up, stand still, and wait your fucking turn. I'll get to you when I get to you, I'm still doing the research.

Out to You.


Dear Covenant People,

Please carry on with the achingly-hot distractingly-pretty porn. Especially when it involves Tyler being kinky. *licks lips*


PS I think Caleb could use some more love, though... *hints*

  • I think I need to buy a teapot. They’re so cute and it would save me all the hassle of having to boil up the kettle each time and find the teabags and wait hours for it to brew. But, then there’d be hassle with finding loose tea and remembering to strain it, wouldn’t there. Oh, and also with the part where tea is my I-want-to-go-home-and-curl-up-under-the-duvet-with-my-teddy-bear comfort drink, so buying a teapot is a bit like tempting fate. Oh. Maybe not buying a teapot then. But they’re so cute!

  • I am so hungry! I’ve been carb-loading out of habbit all week, so I stopped today (and only ate a few slices of pizza, because I’m sensible like that). But now I’m craving pasta and bread and I’m all out of Nutri-Grain bars for bulk. *sighs* I’m going to get back into long runs just so I can eat properly again.

  • I have become nocturnal once again. It happens. I’m used to it. I work nights in the holidays in any case. It still makes me cross that people have decided I am lazy because I work ten hour shifts that finish at 0200hrs and don’t then get up at 0600hrs. I have nothing to be awake for at that time, why should I deprive myself of desperately needed sleep?

  • Writing is not going well. I had a sudden burst of inspiration at 0300hrs a few days ago, and now there are three four [livejournal.com profile] rounds_of_kink prompts on the go, but I keep stuttering to a halt in the middle of them. Tyler keeps being a rag-doll; Pogue’s far too invested in Caleb’s welfare to notice Tyler being all wet and adorable in an otherwise empty hot tub; Nate can’t decide what he was wearing before he ended up in Brad’s kitchen and therefore can’t work out whether he can run home or not; and Reid is being Reid and refusing to speak to me at all. Boys! *throws hands up in despair*

  • I have worked out what was upsetting me so much about the almost-wank in the GK fandom. I’m going to think about it some more, and then try and do something constructive about it. I hate wank so much!

  • Also for the GK fandom, I think we need a massive rec list that details everything written so far. Then it could be a first port of call when people are looking for a fic and can’t remember what it was called. I know [livejournal.com profile] alethialia did one a while ago, and there’s the Porn Skirmish and also the Porn Battle… Am I missing something big? I need to make a list I think.

  • There is no rugby now until November. On the one hand, that gives everyone much-needed recovery time. On the other hand, I’m bored already. Somehow, England seem to still be in the World Cup. I don’t know how that happened but I would very much like my television back please. Oh, and I would also like to be allowed not to be English. Some of us that live here actually have a heritage, difficult as that may be to comprehend.

  • Umm… How beautiful is Ed Westwick!? I must catch up on Gossip Girl…

This Post is pissing me off. I can’t seem to explain exactly why in words which are repeatable. I think it has a lot to do with my opinion that everyone should get over themselves around here. But I appreciate that I am utterly exhausted and spoiling for a fight just now. Maybe I’ll try getting some thoughts down on paper at some point. Urgh. Can I not have one fandom that I want to stay in for more than a few months? I’m going to back to writing Covenant slash… *grumbles*

Because [livejournal.com profile] idirilifinial said I could have pretties too!

Things that are making me happy today (not including proving the fail inherent in Marxism due to the self-driven nature of the human condition) in visual form. With words. Because it’s me (Maybe NSFW). )

Did I mention in this post that [livejournal.com profile] kahtyasofia is an amazing person with the patience of a saint who doesn't even yell at me for my run-on sentances any more? Because she is. *nods emphatically* Thank you baby. ♥

Thinky Thoughts in Prose Form )

I wish I could hand this in as coursework. If I have to write one more essay on ‘the presentation of the mother’ I am going to throw something *sigh*.

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] temporal_witch who apparently is NOT an HTML tag:

If you could have me write a fic specifically for you, what would it be like? Fandom, characters/pairing, genre, plot elements, kinks... what's your ideal fic from me?

Apparently, reading explicitly suggestive poetry is not conducive to holding my trains of thought. I do love it when I'm not the only one with my mind in the gutter though...

On a slightly related note: I've noticed I listen to different bands according to what fandom I'm writing for, and sometimes there are different bands for different pairings (eg. Rudy/Pappy have adopted Owl City, Queen is for writing Torchwood fic.). Am I the only person that does this?

GK CAST AS POLARBEARS! I have no words...

*dies of awesome*

  1. My Puppy and I went on a four mile walk yesterday. She was all bouncy and got covered in mud, I met a grand total of five people the entire time (which is pretty much my idea of heaven) and had Nate Fick reading aloud to me and teaching me all about being a Marine. All things considered, it was the best hour of my holiday so far.

  2. I managed to sleep through New Year. And… well, I’m pretty much sleeping through everything at the moment. I’m starting to wonder if I have anaemia or something, because I have not been this tired in a long, long time. And I can’t process anything anyone is saying to me. Is fun.

  3. Dr Who very nearly made me cry. I think I’m gonna have to watch it again now that I know what happens. Without hiding behind the bear.

  4. Gen Kill DVDs are awesome. ASkars and PJ Ransone’s commentary is killing me! I love how they put the actors through boot camp, it really shows in the weapon handling and everything. I think I’m just about over my Real Person squick, so maybe the muses can come back out of hiding. Somehow I have over 6k words of AU and still no porn. This makes me sad. Also, I really want Rudy/Pappy fic.

  5. Coffee!

  6. Oh Walt! It’s OK baby, the car wasn’t stopping and you’re chin strapped. *< /3*

And now, I’m gonna have a bath in the middle of the night and give my headspace a serious talking to, because this is not funny any more.

This Post is made of win! All about why no-one ever comments on anything.

And New Theme! made of sparkly awesomeness. Still trying to figure out how to get a link to my fic up where my flist/archive/memories links are though.
