Quick fic rec for you this morning, a snapshot of the relationship between Supernatural's Special Agent Henrikson and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' Agent Ellison. Gen, spoilers through "Jus in Bello" and "The Demon Hand" respectively. Requiem (Casualties of the Human Condition) Go read, it's delightful!

Furiously writing fic, being poked with needles (less furiously), and working on Tuesday's presentation about society and dissent. Amongst other things! I have also got my hands on the latest and final Codex Alera book by Jim Butcher, oh yes.

Why hello there!

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] aldehyde and [livejournal.com profile] deeplyunhip for your lovely cards! I found them waiting for me when I got in last night. That does mean I'm back in the east, happily settling back into routines. I missed you, eddoes and kolhrabi! (Could not find them on the west coast and it was sad.) I'm currently losing the jet lag battle, but give it a few days; I always have a harder time coming east than going west.

Though it wasn't all on what I should have been working on (ficathon deadline is starting to loom), I wrote some comment fic over the holidays. Riley-centric TSCC fic here, Martha-centric Doctor Who fic here, Torchwood Jack fic here and a little bit of love for Supernatural's Ellen Harvelle.

I'm not entirely happy with the Martha fic in particular; I'm far too wordy and maybe it's formality that I don't like in the tone, but I can't quite put my finger on the problem with it. I like the Jack piece best. I'm so much more comfortable with dialogue!

Is anyone willing to do a quick read-through for a Sarah Jane-centric story? It's a bit of silly fun (really silly fun) inspired by a prompt at [livejournal.com profile] doctorwho. I'm aiming to finish most of it off tonight. The piece won't need much from you, just a quick check for grammar, spelling, and maybe tone. (Edit: If you're able to brit-pick, it would be very welcome!) I'm also looking for a super quick turn-around time!

My parents have gone to Hollywood. I expect they'll be back within the hour. Why no, I don't care to explain myself at this time.

I am taking the night off from life and spending it in bed. My creative genius (:P) is nagging at me and I think I will write some fiction, or work on some pieces I've started. I'd really love to wrap up the story I started for the Kissing Challenge (which has long since closed), but as with every attempt at writing romance, I feel awkward, clumsy and inept. With only a handful of exceptions, I write genfic and friendshipfic and that's okay, because fandom needs more of that. It's just frustrating to feel awful when attempting a new genre. I wrote a Yuki/Shuichi piece two years ago, but that was so "Slice of Life" and so something we could have seen in the series that it didn't feel like romance. It was light and silly and perhaps less raunchy than the challenge called for, but I got away with it.

Anyway.

When trying to write pairings I find myself drawing directly on my own experiences, which is maybe why I'm so critical of them (I've rarely been able to do a memory justice on paper) and it's hard to think of sharing that piece, knowing how much of my own life is in there. This kissing fic (Harry/Ginny, for the curious) recounts a particularily emotionally charged kiss of my own and while its good story material and something I don't entirely mind sharing, since a)life is more universal than I can possibly imagine and b)most people will never know is based off my life anyway. I just don't know how to write kisses without doing that. Is this just something I'm going to have to work out on my own over time? I don't know, but right now, it's really just pushing me back toward genfic.

I know I told about five of you I was going to sleep, but I couldn't, so I turned my laptop on and did a bunch of beta reading for [info]peacerose . I tried to do it properly, by reading it through first and THEN commenting, but I have a big mouth and it did not last very long. :P

I'm not sure how far in I am Loz - but I have about twenty and a half pages saved now. I'm not sure how many there were when you gave it to me.

*betas*

*sleeps*

Two new icons upload. YAYAYAYAYAYAY!
