Work became ridiculously busy the day after MLK day, and looks to be that way for the foreseeable future. I hadn't realized how much I was depending on work downtime to stay caught up on my internet life. In the meantime, I have been reading very compelling books and foolishly staying up late to do so, with the end result that I'm very tired.Communication
I've been thinking about this a lot, but haven't said anything because I don't want to seem like I'm complaining or fishing for something: I have one group of friends who only talk to me about fandom via email, and then I have this whole other group of friends who will talk to me about fandom on LJ and Twitter. It's kind of strange.Fandom: Bandom Big Bangbandombigbang
posted the rules and sign up posts. I'm still totally unclear as to whether Leighton/Vicky-T is okay or not. They're also fairly adamant about people keeping their stories secret until posting time, which I really
have not done. I'm still trying to figure out if I want to email and ask if Leighton/Vicky-T is okay or just say to hell with it and maybe write something else for wave two later. (Assuming I ever finish this Leighton/Vicky-T story.) Opinions on this point are more than welcome!Fandom: Space Big Bang
I'm not writing anything for spacebigbang
, but you should! I will totally read outside my fandom for space AUs.Fandom: Empires
I've been trying to work out an actual story about girl!Sean in my head. It's not going well. Girl!Sean is difficult to conceptualize, much less write.
I have been writing a lot of Empires kink fic in my head, but none of it has yet made it out of my head. Someday, maybe.Fandom: Panic!
I am, in theory, very interested in your current goings-on, but in reality I'm tired and trying to keep up with my writing and my email. I promise to eventually listen to your new song.

Bebe keeps tweeting pictures of her baby cousin. I think the cousin is actually too old for this plot bunny, but I really want a story where the cousin is actually not a cousin but her daughter. I don't know what else would happen in this story.Fandom: TV
I am caught up with Big Love
, but I realized yesterday that I'd forgotten that Friday Night Lights
was back from hiatus, so I am behind on that. I'm also behind on Nikita
. And I have two movies in the house (one from the library, one from Netflix). Alas, the problems of a fangirl.
I've also watched the first few eps of Jack and Bobby
on Netflix, and it's dated in a very interesting way. The girl playing the love interest is not the kind of standardized pretty that would let her be on a CW show now.Books
I'm reading Libba Bray's trilogy (A Great and Terrible Beauty
, Rebel Angels
, The Sweet Far Thing
), which is incredibly compelling, even if I find it iffy as historical fiction. She does appear to be the kind of writer who learned to write as she went along. Part of the reason I'm reading them is that I remember people talking about them being femslashy. I'm a little disappointed on that point. Perhaps I just read too much explicitly homoerotic fiction for mere subtext to satisfy me.
