You know, I seriously wish I had something more interesting to report than like, I still exist in the universe, but no, that's about the extent of my new things to share. However. Two things, which are not things I am doing, but amazing things other people are doing. God, I wish I were them.

1.) ronnachu is translating You'll Get There in the End (It Just Takes a While) (also archived at Archive of Our Own here) into Spanish here; she's up to four parts, and because she is awesome, she posted the fourth part on my birthday, which was, as stated, awesome. And I can almost follow along, as long as I keep a copy open in English to refer to. I don't know if this is improving my Spanish, but it's serious fun.

Direct links to the first four parts: part 1, part 2, part 3, and part 4 out of a projected twelve parts. I admit it; I squee.

2.) Cruising Altitude by astolat, Adam/Kris/Tommy. It involves an airplane. I mean, if you need more than that--well, do you really? Probably not. Enjoy yourself!

Quick thanks to everyone who sent birthday wishes. Last week turned out really weird and I appreciate it immensely, as the day was far less than what one would call successful, but OTOH, I watched Child play Gears of War and it was kind of hilarious. Also today, the gas furnace had to be disabled due to a gas smell that seems to indicate something has gone terribly wrong, and we're living like pioneers with heat coming from a centralized location known as a fireplace. I am so hardcore Little House on the Prairie. I had to go get wood! Myself! Granted, it was like five feet away, but I just want to state, that's five feet I never had to travel before to assure we do not freeze to death. Sure, it's not freezing here, but what I'm saying is, if it did? We're good to go.

Er, okay. Just from curiosity? Stolen from everyone on my flist and then some:

Who on LJ/DW do you ship me with? Bonus points for outlining the ridiculous AU fic that you would write about us.


ETA: Okay, I regret that I mocked my Fall Out Boy playlist and really want to go back to singing Hum Halleluja with gleeful abandon.; The Fray is music you die in the middle of the street at night in the rain to. God. Why on earth did I think listening to this was a good idea? Die at night in the rain in the street surrounded by dying puppies or something.

Remind you to tell you about when my father has to go out and split wood for the fireplace..and I have had to stack it. There is a stack of wood almost the entire distance of our house out in back of my parents' house.

*grins*

Then, wood was hauled inside and someone had to start the fire. I have received all possible paternal training on the subject, so I am 'cleared to do so.' :)

Your description of The Fray's music is amusing me probably far more than it should. So true, though. ):

Srsly. I was trying to write a PWP and suddenly they were breaking up and I was on the cusp of sending one to die in rehab. I mean, what the hell? It was sex in a closet. IDEK.

Omg, finally a "shipping" meme I can do! OBVIOUSLY I would ship you with svmadelyn, and obviously it would be Roadtrip Fic involving alcohol, shopping, food, and solving a terrorist plot with spreadsheets and programming (you) and organizational and persuasive skillz (madelyn). \o/

I... kind of want to write this now.XD Hmm, but how to make it porny... I'm thinking maybe some undercover detectives? idk, idk

*giggles* I like how you think!

Hey, can i ask a favor? Can you read something for me? It's--complicated, and I'm not sure I got it right. About ten pages and part of the Not a Statement fic.

Ooooh, I can actually do that, I think! I've got work I have to do, but definitely can do your thing first, and would love to.:) cathalinss@gmail.com

eta: oh, man, I'm rereading Not a Statement right now, and it's sooo good. \o/

Heh. I'm right there myself. I mean, I'm sure interesting, fun, gleefilled things are happening around the world, they're just not happening in my life at the moment.

Because I am Old School and the early days of SV fandom still hold a special place in my heart, I'd have to say you/thete1. I'm assuming the AU would include a devious alien race that tried to take over the world and could only be fought by producing large amounts of written porn. Clearly, you and Te would be working to save the world from the threat of invasion and during an all-night writing session (which I'm sure would occur in a lab, as all world-saving inventions should), sparks would fly.

*purrs* I love love love how you think.

I feel like you and svmadelyn would be like the John/Rodney of the seperis fandom, so I'd have to be contrary and go for a minor pairing. Like you/winterlive. You would be secret agents in some Leverage-esque universe where you would be Hardison and she would be Parker.

...omg i love that! LEVERAGE! I could totes do that.

I would concur with this. And also add, HEEE. Actually, you as a secret agent would be kind of terrifying. Because you'd know everything and track people across continents.

Glad you're having fun with the reading, it must be pretty weird to read yourself translated ^^
