I have decided that, should anyone ever want to give me a priceless gift that will make me eternally grateful, it would be a keeper. Someone who will instinctively know when I am starting new stories that will turn out long, despite the fact I am working on--Christ, *four*? Really?--WiPs that I keep posting publicly instead of hiding them in a folder to slowly grow or die tragically. When their Jenn-stupidity-sense itched, they would send out emails with inspiring things like this:

DON'T YOU FUCKING DARE THINK OF CLONE!JOHN FIC UNTIL AT LEAST A QUARTER OF YOUR WIPS ARE DONE. HANDS OFF!

--Keeper Person

Or this.

JENN I WILL FIND YOU ON AIM NO MATTER WHICH FAKE NAME YOU ARE USING WITH MY JENN-STUPIDITY SENSE! CLOSE THAT BLANK DOCUMENT *RIGHT NOW*

--Keeper Person

Or perhaps this.

I AM HOLDING THE ONLY RABBIT THAT WILL EVER LET YOU TOUCH HIM HOSTAGE.

--Keeper Person

Or just maybe, this.

DO THE WORDS NO MORE COFFEE EVER MEAN ANYTHING TO YOU?

--Keeper Person

I'd like to just state--God, I have no idea what I'm stating. PRU DOES IT MORE THAN I DO! GO LOOK! I CAN SHOW YOU HER WIPS! THEY ARE MANY MORE! I think. *chews on nails* I hope. God, I hope.

Yeah. Welcome to my afternoon. Hostile rabbits, bearded dragon too long, and me staring longingly at clonefic before hiding it away. I hate the universe. Well, I don't. I hate not having a secondary brain to handle this stuff. I'd like one of those, too.

I had to give the dogs baths this afternoon. And then Teddy fell asleep on top of me, wrapped up in a towel. Do you have to bathe the rabbits? I'd hope not, given what you've said of their claws.

Did you start a new story last night? Bad Jenn! Bad! You need to finish the saga of young John and his hapless adult guardians!

No, no baths for rabbits. It can send htem into shock or something. they're kinda like cats--you leave them to their own devices unless it's a fairly serious issue. Plus, I have talc powder stuff for dry bathing if they get into something that's midrange.

*winces*

Ookay, technically, I did on Saturday, but that is only because I was--well. Okay, because I was sitting tehre, but it is *not my fault*. It's society's fault, really.

I'm working on the other ones, honest!

Don't look at me for help, but I had to stop and goggle: clone!John? Does this mean while I've been completely MIA you've taken up Farscape fic??

/is gleeful

I'm still in second season Farscape! *sad* I love that show, but I always forget I have the DVDs until like, three in teh morning.

I don't know if you know about this...

Well, when you said "keeper", I thought you meant this : http://www.keeper.com/Media/keeper.jpg

....oh my god

*faintly*

I have even more WIPs than you do, but alas, we are dealing with your angst here, so:

PUT DOWN THE CLONE!JOHN FIC EVEN THOUGH IT SOUNDS GREAT AND I TOTALLY WANT TO READ IT AT SOME POINT BUT FIRST FINISH JOHN AS A CHILD FIC OR AT LEAST HAVE HIM AGE TO 15 OR 17 AND STALK RODNEY.

Also, seriously, you don't have to give rabbits baths do you?

Yes yes yes, I'm being good, I just--seriously. Fannish ADHD. It's a *sickness*.

*mmm* Sixteen or seventeen. All pretty and tousled and muddy and *flexible*. oooh yeah. *happy place*

JENN, I WILL DISCONNECT YOUR LIFE SUPPORT HIDE THE CHOCOLATE JENN.

Would too!

I'd hide it in my tummy!

I have eight or nine WIPs that will never see the light of day. They sit in my document folder with an aura of one night stand shame. DON'T BRING SHAME AND MISERY ONTO YOUR COMPUTER. YOU'LL HATE YOURSELF IN THE MORNING - THEY NEVER RESPECT YOU ONCE YOU'VE DONE IT.

Hee! ::chortles wickedly::

you don't actually have to finish the WIP, UNLESS you post it! ::eyes Teacher's Pet worriedly::

have fun!
/enabler

*bares teeth* I am so doomed.

Here, hopefully these will inspire you towards finishing one of the WIPs:



Okay, you *seriously kick ass*. Oh God, he is hot, isn't he? *breathes and stares* Thank you so, so much. And also. Oh man. Yes.

John is very, very pretty. Psychotic John is especially very, very pretty.

*goes off to search for psychotic Rodney*

Glad they appeal to you!

I AM HOLDING THE ONLY RABBIT THAT WILL EVER LET YOU TOUCH HIM HOSTAGE.

Aw. Poor Mr. Waffles. But...Clone!John? ::ears perk up:: Frankly, I'm happy with any of your WIPs you want to continue, or any new ones you want to start. Actually, I'd probably read John's grocery list if you wrote it. So, obviously, I am not your Keeper, but Keepers are overrated anyway. Yeah.

*starts giggling* It's--an embryonic thing. Just-there in my head.

*sends non-WIPpy thoughts*

Sends stern thoughts about you finishing KidJohn before you start Anything Else, Young Lady! Or - your rabbits will do something horrible - turn into CTHULHU or something. However, I fear that my threats are no use because you live far far away. But there are always thunderbolts!

does the Wip file still contain Pretty When you're Mine? I can deal w/ not getting it any time soon if only I can know that it *might* be worked on again *someday*...
Please?

I really dont know. If I do, it won't be soon. Sorry about that!

LOL.
YOU ANSWERED ME!!!

It's ok. You've got *so Much* that you've done... I can't begrudge you that one loose thread.

I haven't yet gotten to SGA, so I hadn't realized. Wow. There's a LOT there. How do you have time??

Thirding emrinalexander *g* must be something about her name.
