The semester started in January and I have to admit, this time around, I am a horrible procrastinator. Normally I work ahead, so that I don't have to panic over tests or assignments, but I think because the video for Clin Path is wiping the floor with me, my anxiety has transmuted into apathy. I'm still chugging along, thankfully, but this is why I've been MIA from DW/LJ for the last few weeks.

I am, however, halfway done with my video and I'm actually doing B-level work in A&P (which I'll take despite wanting an A), so I can finally divert my attention from "WHAT THE HELL IS THAT CELL?" to fandom again. I should probably focus on my apartment some, but, well...

Unfortunately, I won't be making the Romancing McShep deadline. I do plan to hold onto the prompts and continue working on the fills until I can eventually post them to AO3, but with tomorrow being the final posting day, I won't make it. But I do have fills of the [ profile] comment_fic kind:

Deaged AU (Jack/Sam, The boys)
Any, Any, Magic Dance (David Bowie)
Author's Choice, any ensemble, arguing over who gets to pick the film for group movie night
Stargate Atlantis, Rodney McKay, despite his preference for airline food and MREs, he's actually quite proficient in the kitchen

NASA AU (John/Rodney)
Stargate Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay, Rodney taking care of sick John

Before I Sleep AU (Past John/Rodney, John & Rodney)
Stargate Multiverse, Any,

The distance is what’s killing me
Time and space have become the enemy

(Hot Chelle Rae)

Lemony AU (John/Rodney)
Stargate Atlantis, Sheppard/McKay, kitchen staff didn't notify of lemon in the food

Post-Series (John/Rodney)
Stargate Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay,

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough

(Snow Patrol)

MCU (Steve/Bucky)
Marvel Cinematic Universe, Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers, You Are My Once In A Lifetime

Skyfall (James Bond/Q)
Any, Any m/m, "And... and much as it grieves me to say it, it... it might be that the people I love is, in fact... you."

I got home tonight after a relatively decent day--three cats in the kennel, but 2 are post-spays and docile enough to handle; 1 is a medical case and I've been calling him an angry panther--to realize that this morning's poke in the eye might actually be an abrasion. My eye hurts and I just want to keep rubbing it, so hopefully if it's not ragingly painful in the AM, I can snatch a bottle of triple antibiotic eye drops from our supply and give a rest from the contacts for a few days.

I was actually looking for my slightly older bottle of triple drops when I discovered that one of the cats peed on a towel I'd left on the floor in the bathroom. This normally would have been an annoyance, but it was a towel that has intermittent white stripes and they were decidedly pinkish/red so someone has bloody pee. Given that they're both acting a little clingy it's hard to judge who it was; I may end up bringing both of them to work tomorrow, God help me. O.O

[ profile] comment_fic has had a few prompts that have revived the Raising Sons & Vivat Rex AUs. Foiled by Thermodynamics even had another fill to it, though I'm not anticipating as much added to that as the others. I added them to the Master Posts, and spent part of last night uploading Vivat Rex to AO3. While the MP for that one is in timeline order, the AO3 is chaptered by the dates I wrote/posted each one. I'm torn about doing the same for Raising Sons.

The Prompts List for Romancing McShep is up. Yay! I'm looking forward to browsing through this year's suggestions to see if I can come up with something more than my 007 AU idea. I'd like something more Canon-compliant since I know AUs are not everyone's cup of tea. (I personally blame the Harlequin challenge from years and years ago for my love of the genre. Because seriously, there was a fic where John was a horse rancher and Rodney was a vet and I still think about it.)

Also on my mind: an SG kink meme. I'm contemplating starting one up because Kink Memes are what kept me writing after I left SGA fandom and I still adore them. ST, Thor, Avengers... I enjoyed every interaction I had on them, good and bad, and continue to fill prompts on the Avengers one when I get the urge. If I decide to pursue it, I'll definitely be doing an interest post first--I tried running an SG KM years ago (the comm might still be on LJ, actually. It is. I deleted the fucking mod account and never transferred ownership. I wonder how I go about reclaiming it since the mod account was purged. :/ ) but I don't think we got more than a handful of fills.

I've been obsessed with watching Skyfall the last few days. A, because Bond & Q and the snark, and B, because I have this draw to a specific exchange:
M: Is this where you grew up?
James Bond: Mm.
M: How old were you when they died?
James Bond: You know the answer to that. You know the whole story.
M: Orphans always make the best recruits.

It has taken me until about five minutes ago to figure out why, but, well, I might have come up with a possible crossover fic for this year's [profile] romancing_mcshep. I foresee many a lunch break at work scribbling frantically in a notebook while hissing at anyone who comes close.

From the sound of it, everyone is starting to mirror themselves on DW in response to LJ now being hosted exclusively in Russia. I, myself, am torn on this: I feel like I should start mirroring if not shifting over to DW, but having had a DW from the time the service started up, I was always more comfortable on LJ.

I do have an account there under this user name. When I swapped accounts from my old LJ, I figured I'd give DW another try. I didn't get farther than setting up a few things and then went back to paying sole attention to LJ, mainly because I couldn't afford to pay for both services and, again, more comfortable here. I guess I'll have to look into it though, if that's where everyone is headed. :/

Thank fuck that it's Friday: the boss fired my work bestie on Monday and that puts me on the desk one day a week training one of the other girls. By 5pm, I was increasing the number of beers I was planning to down before bed. I even have a close friend I made while I was in SGA fandom years ago whom also attended my college (but the former is why we even discovered that) coming to visit and I plan to gorge her on pizza and beer.

Tomorrow I post the next story I wrote for Romancing McShep. ~21000 words and kind of domestic and angsty and I'm tempted to write a few side pieces to explain a few bits and pieces that didn't get background within the fic. Things like why John speaks Dutch of all languages and his mother's death, Rodney's parents, all that jazz. I might work on some over the next few days between activities and homework.

For Romancing McShep 2016, I picked the 4th, 6th, and 9th, and I'm having mild panic attacks that I'm almost to the posting dates. I've re-read the stories a few times each, edited, and had a friend read them, but I'm still nervous as all hell to post them. It really has been forever since I wrote anything for any fandom and many years especially since I wrote McShep.

I'm terrified that I got the voices wrong, that my writing style isn't something readers would like. I've spent so long on the kink memes that I'm not sure if I make passages too short. I don't know if I should have someone else beta on top of my friend who mostly looked for grammar/spelling errors. How the hell would I even find a beta? Ack.

I guess I'll find out tomorrow when I post the medium length fic. Prompt #120 first where the prompt was probably meant more sexually and I turned it into a permanent injury AU, then prompt #106 where I went off the rails, and then prompt #32 where I'm not entirely sure the damn thing makes sense.

Time to stop rambling.

Another 5K today finished off the fic. Maxed out at 20K+ words and 58 pages in OpenOffice. I'm tempted to write a few side pieces to accompany it, since there's things in it that are never explicitly explained, but we'll see. there were a few other prompts that I was interested in and I'd like to actually fill a prompt as opposed to getting started on one and going way off in left field. :/
aivix: (McShep)
I wrote 16 pages and 5K yesterday.

16 pages.

I have written extremely little since October 2014. My brother's death just rendered me with no desire or ability to sit down to do more than read fic, if even that. So this is kind of boggling my mind. I now have two fics on my comp that are over 15K, both of them SGA for which I had written nothing in close to 8 years.

Maybe this is how a writer's brain reboots? Going back to the first real fandom that you loved and writing like hell? Seriously, I've been taking my computer to my job to work on fic during my lunch break.

I think I'll not look this gift horse in the mouth.

Work was long today and crazy. Our four procedures plus our two hospitalized patients slowed everything down exponentially and I was running from one office to the other to help two of the vets. By the time I could clock out, I practically ran to the car instead of staying the extra two hours I could have. I should be doing homework now, but I can barely string sentences so I'm sitting here with SGA and Tumblr, trying to get a scene written between John and his father. Which, admittedly, is not going well.
aivix: (Love)
Well, I've written 12 pages and 4K today.

It's possible this fic might have taken over my life.
