this is what my weekends are like
children of dune - leto 1
I think the only thing keeping me even relatively sane is that chopchica said the DVDs were mailed on Thursday, and, while right now I am resenting the fact that the Federal Government does not make people work on Sundays, I can honestly say that withdrawal for a show I have seen only *one episode of* should not commence until tomorrow, when it isn't in my mailbox, but will probably show up on Tuesday, which, I mean, intellectually, I know is a good thing because I have Thursday through Monday off, and when I get them, I know I won't bother sleeping (and right now, flashbacking on QaF season one, where I was watching nine pm to four am and often fell asleep at the front desk for two weeks since I had to *rewatch every ep* and cut off everyone on my AIM buddylist while I indulged in unhealthy pornographic obsession, oh yes, good times), still disturbed no one notied I could sleep *and* talk to people at the same time)--that is a really long sentence. Yes. One day, maybe two, SGA, and sleep is for those who are not me.

This isn't going to get to that. I am older and wiser now. I can cut off things when I am tired. I can carry on normal social internet interactions. I am scared a little to realize that there is something *called* normal social internet interactions.

I have accomplished a *lot* this weekend, though. In fanfical terms. In RL terms, I babysat evil children, only two of which are blood relations. At some point in a fairer future, I will retailiate for the horror.

1.) Landscape - currently at over 85,000 words, which means that it's longer than Somewhere, but Somewhere only took me twenty-five days to write, and this miniature nightmare is running on about a year. I can't even remember when I sent Issaro the beginning and told her I'd finish it. Hmmm.

2.) There's this place, ship_recs? Yeah. That place. I decided, in a fit of logic Friday night, to start reading there and just go down the list until I ran out of stories, since I like, you know, logic, and God, I miss mailing lists right now. I'm three quarters of the way down skip=sixty. Eventually, I'm going to count how many stories that is in SGA, because I suspect that's a lot. I can honestly report that glutting oneself on aliens-made-them-have-sex really *never* gets boring, like, ever. Also, I'm picking up an unnatural liking for math, and if any of you poor people had been in class with me and Calculus, you'd be trying to make me see a shrink, cause wow. NewWorldOrder.

I'm going to go bother svmadelyn now. She keeps emailing me new ways for Clark to be driven insane. You'd actually not guess this is what I call downtime before I lunge back into the glutting of fic. Mmm. Glut.

It's the Pretty That Is Shep and the Smug That Is Rodney. It makes me want to sit down and actually follow their damn math (especially when the equations pop up in the fic, like in kaneko's latest fic).

Stay away from the mailing lists. Just... trust me. Although Wraithbait on Yahoo! groups is usually good for updates about where our pretty boys will be showing up on TV next.

As i was gorging myself on SGA fic at the very beginning of my obsession, I hit ship_recs SGA memories and just went straight down the list. Unfortunately, I've now reached the point in the recs that coincides with my entrance into fandom, i.e. I've already read all the good stuff.

So, uh... when are you going to start writing here? *bats eyelashes innocently*

I can honestly report that glutting oneself on aliens-made-them-have-sex really *never* gets boring, like, ever.

So very, very true.

I heartily agree with everything ilexa said. SGA mailing lists are evil. If you want the recent stuff, the Wraithbait front page lists everything new, and Area 52 has an update page.

A year? Eleven months? Thirteen? Girl, I have no clue but it's been fun! I don't know what I'm going to do when it's done and I have nothing to bother you about *G*

Maybe around the time you went QAF crazy and I had horrible thoughts of never seeing the Clex again? This time I know better. *sticks tongue out at SGA*

*grins* I actually like SGA, but SV comes first and foremost, obviously. I have some decent blackmail type material, but I am currently focusing my efforts on Somewhere. I'd just suggest you find some dirt (there's plenty, whee!) and you know, do what you have to do to keep her typing out the names Clark and Lex in lieu of other silly things.

*pats you in solidarity* After she finishes Lanscape, have another Epic Story of Doom plotbunny ready, primed and waiting. Another year of funness for everyone!

*eats popcorn*

Ah-Ha! So that is the secret huh? Blackmail material and a second plot of doom. Will keep that in mind. But, yes, Somewhere must be fixed. Clark has every right to torture Lex till the end of days but they must stay together and happy dammit! I assume you're using your powers for the good of us all the Clex, right?

We will play as dirty as she *makes* us.

I'm kind of afraid I planted this Chlex baby idea that she just won't let *go away*, and uses it at will to torment me.

I try and use my powers for good! But sometimes they backfire just horribly. *bites nails*

hmmm.... I guess that's okay, assuming she loses the baby, runs away with it, or dies. God, I'm horribly morbid and cruel aren't I? Maybe just a baby scare?

Since your post, I have been going crazy at ship_recs. A rec site I hadn't been to yet! So much new fic to read...and now I'm off to do just that :)
