Or--just wait for my preorder to arrive at my door. It's tricky; one part is thinking HISTORICAL FAN EVENT HERE and the other is thinking BUT THEN I WILL NOT BE ALBE TO LIE IN BED IN MY JAMMIES AND LAPTOP and God, why is it I cannot have both?
Saw movie. Loved.
Updated my webpage to current with the exception of A History of Violence - I'm trying to decide whether to put it as three separate stories or a single file. Yes, these are the deep meditation moments of my life. The following stories were added:
Sight Unseen (the adultery snippet)
An Evening at the White House by svmadelyn
Dealing With the Unexpected (mpreg)
Where I Lay My Head, final version
The Sleeping City
Yes, tagging again. Everything I've written, including wips, snippets, and etc, are now up in del.icio.us, with a disturbing specificity of tags. I'll add as I run across them in my lj.
Hmm. Short insane moment coming next.
Meta on Tagging
For those who actually go there and read around and marvel at what will in the future probably be one of the early signs of my impending breakdown (I'm sure this will show up in my biography, The Girl Who Suddenly Painted Herself Green and Married Characters on the Astral Plane: How A Fangirl Went Wrong by
A million years ago in lj, a meme went around asking people to critique their fic--wait, let me find that. Got it, here. This was early in my lj tenure--and pretty early for fandom in lj, to be honest. It was interesting.
The commment I'm interested in at this point, however, was by rhiannohero, where she mentioned a flaw she saw, and had emailed me about in a fic I wrote. It was the overuse of the phrase "something like". It's true. I have a bad habit of finding a phrase I like and beating it to death with a hammer.
Del.icio.us isn't made to be that specific, but it does give me a way to track what I tend to write thematically--physical location, weather-type, and occasionally concept. The three I'm tracking currently are: a.) the use of rain in a fic, b.) where I put them (example, oh, Mexico, deserts, etc), and c.) kind of story (apocalypse, etc). It's--I want to say enlightening, because it helps assuage my curiosity on what I tend to go for in fic. Most of the fic still aren't completely tagged, but I'm slowly adding as I go.
I guess in a way it's become a kind of quasi-map to my subconscious, a map to my kinks, a map to what makes me want to write. i look at it and see what I've been doing even if I don't know why.
For LJ, I've done a fairly large-scale retagging of the fanfic by fandom and year, as well as fanfic series. It was--interesting. And very, very anal. On my main lj sidebar are the ones currently mostly completed. The year split was originally because SGA hit over 100, so I had to split by year, but it does make it convenient to hunt down fic.
In conclusion: I still want a pony. Am considering stealing one somewhere.
