school has effectively kept me out of fandom all month. But, there is a light at the end of the tunnel! My final exam is this Friday, and then I will be back to betaing random stories, and hopefully, I'll even pick back up on Found. Wouldn't that be nice?

In the meantime, this excerpt from JM's blog made me laugh my ass off. Now the people in the cafeteria are giving me funny looks. I really shouldn't do my blog reading while on campus...

I pushing for that musical eppy where they visit the planet with the weird ionic disturbance that necessitates everyone communicate through song:
Teyla: It would seem that we’ve been misleeaad!
The natives here have all turned up dead!
Ronon: The thought of the wraith really makes me see reeeeed!
McKay: The prospect of seeing them fills me with dreeeeaaaad!
Sheppard: The second you spot them simply fill them with leeaaad!

Good grief. I'm silent here for a while and LiveJournal veritably falls apart without me. I always knew I was important.

monanotlisa pretty much summed up my feelings (well, for the most part, anyway) in this post.

I'm kind of glad I missed all the kerfuffle. I don't need LJ drama to go with my real life drama (which is all neatly compacted into the [now paid!!] lady_bugged account)

I'm over it. I was never in it. I've been with LJ since I was 13. I just bought a 6 month paid account for lady_bugged. I understand the anger from this side, and I agree with most of it. But I don't care enough to leave. I'm just that lethargic. :P

And I mean, they apologised, and they're trying to fix things, and hey - Brad wasn't around. So far, I haven't seen anything this bad happen with Brad around. So blame that other guy, or something.

I don't know, and I really don't care. But you know - I thought I'd throw my two cents in. :P

I only just recently found out about this whole FanLib fiasco. I kind of have to wonder why they didn't do their research. Fandom is incredibly self-protective. Otherwise it wouldn't be in existence. That they actually expected the endeavor to work is just silly. IMO.

Sometimes I'm glad that I'm not as active in Fandom as some people, merely for the sake that I'm saved from some of the drama.

In case you are also in the dark, icarusancalion wrote an enlightening article on the whole debacle:

...you own my soul:
Grace writes: “ About this comment from you: I don't think anyone expects you to show people out on dates or anything like that. What confuses people is that YOU KNOW THIS. You know that Shep/Weir has more support than Shep/Teyla.”

Answer: To be perfectly honest, it doesn't really interest me. Sheppard/Talking Chimp (Shemp) can get ten times as many votes as Sheppard/Discarded Melba Toast (Shdmt) and it still won’t impact the creative decisions we make.


some interesting news in my personal LJ cropping up as soon as I get off my lazy ass and make a post, for those of you creeps who want to know all about my personal life, ;P

My god, I actually got like, almost two pages written in the past half hour. That's so awful. This spot is just so deadly, I am seriously ready to strangle myself for putting me through this.

However, I did a word-count and I've already got like, ~2400 words! Which okay, compared to Lost is diddly-squat, but hey, considering the huge lack of time I've spent on this, I'm impressed with myself, lol. I think this one may end up being shorter than Lost, too. I'm not sure. I don't think it's physically possible for me to write a story longer than ~10,000 words, lol. Lost was around 8k, I think.

So, I'm almost through with Laura and Katie, which is why this is taking so long. I really can't stand writing straight women. They bore the crap out of me, and Katie is just freaking annoying, and I hate seeing her with Rodney, lol. But, it's all for the better in the long run, and I get to break her heart in the process. Aren't I a malicious Goddess to my little characters? [evil laughter] :P

In other news, May 1st tomorrow, and I did no prewriting for the merry month of masturbation (mmom. I'll still try to get a couple fics in, but I doubt I'll get a lot. We'll see.

y'all should see mmmchelle's porn tree. so great. yeah, I definately added my own little comment porn to it. Wee!

Also, in fanfic news:

So, I'm working on Found now, (the sequel to Lost), but it's painstaking and very slow going.

It's strange, even though I'm a Rodney fan first, and as much as I love John, I love Rodney that much more, I find him really hard to write, and I have such an easier time writing John. Oh, the trials and tribulations of fanfic authory, lol.

Anyways, I'm at a really lame part of the story, and it's slow going and generally being evil, and... I hate writing Katie Brown, let's leave it at that.

Bah. But you know. It's coming.
I need to stop wasting time playing tetris and force myself to write through that stupid scene.

So, I just had an epiphane of sorts. I figured out why I always adored Buffy and her relationships...

Futility, mostly. Every one of Buffy's relationships was doomed from the start. And it was always obvious, though perhaps subtley. Angel? Besides the fact that he was a vampire, if he was ever truly happy, he'd lose his soul - how is that not doomed? Riley - he was military, for one, and for another, he started off their relationship by lying to her, just like he ended it. Fortunately for the Buffy Whumpers of the world, Buffy is sometimes not the quickest, emotionally, and so she didn't make it to him in time for him to hear that she had forgiven him. And Spike? By the time Spike and Buffy got together, Buffy was so messed up, I'm surprised it was as cohesive as it was.

For someone who is as self-sabatoging as I am in relationships (this is not such a new realisation), Buffy's self-sabatoging behaviour was a beautiful parrallel to mine. And on top of it, vampires are sexy, who doesn't love to watch them get it on?

And in that note - Spike/Buffy? Hottest couple on Buffy, ever, and the only het pairing I still read. Seriously, Spuffy was perfect. Spike loved her so damn much - more even than Angel ever did, because Spike loved her when he was soulless, which is more than Angel (Angelus) can say.

But, Buffy was Buffy, and while she may have loved him, in someway, by the end of the series, she was always so hung up on Angel and everything that had gone that she had just blinded herself pretty much. And when he forced her to see, she tried to find ways to block it out. And that was another thing - Spike never coddled her, and she didn't need coddling. She needed a wakeup call most of the time, and nobody around her would ever give it to her but Spike.

Also, their scene in Touched? Most romantic scene ever. Spike's little speech makes my heart break every damn time I watch it. And then the holding afterwards is just. Man.

I love Spuffy. Le sigh.

and this, is the best Buffy song EVER. It even has her last name in it. But honestly, it describes her perfectly...

pretend you're alive

Oh summer life,
oh summer life,
crawling with these worms,
you're afraid of all their germs.

oh bask in life,
oh bask in life,
the weather gonna swallow you
into the great divide,

oh enjoy life,
oh enjoy life,
climbing up those trees
and breaking all your knees.

Watch angels in the morning
become a devil's afternoon.
I will panic in the evening
underneath the crashing moon.
So fall in love while you can
still hold your head up high,
and pretend that you're alive again.
It's friends that leave you here in the end,
so hold you head up high,
and pretend that you're
alive again.

Now autumn brings
the beautiful things,
where all you give comes back to you
like the crown upon my king.

Your life's a song,
so sing along
before the silence swallows you
and leaves you like a pawn,

watch angels in the morning
become a devil's afternoon,
I will panic in the evening
underneath the crashing moon.

So fall in love while you can
still hold your head up high,
and pretend that you're alive again.
It's friends that leave you here in the end,
so hold your head up high and
pretend that you're alive.

Your friends,
now ghosts,
are screaming
"Bury us," they said,
while panicking,
my mind was broken.
