someday, sleep will be mine in a place where I don't drool on my desk

There are many reasons I refer to my sister's son's father as Future Serial Killer, because he's just that disturbing. At four this morning, he continued his adventures in Calling Obsessively For Hours Until I Try to Give Him Hives With My Mind.

So I've been awake since the ninth call, circa 4:30, and I totes tried to sleep and gave up at five-thirty. However, I entertained myself with various things and also decided I will not destroy worlds, because that would be wrong.

Instead, other things.

The Vampire Diaries - Damon Wants You to Watch

Okay, it is rare that a show manages to be better than the books, but strangely enough, they are. I read the first four when I was eighteen (and more's the pity that she added to the series after that) and so far I'm grooving the changes (especially Vicky, since her fate seriously sucked and let me tell you, this? Improvement). If you can make it through the first three eps, the fourth starts picking it up, and the sixth is awesome not least of which because Damon dances on the side of a balcony to "Enjoy the Silence" and frankly he's ungodly hot. I mean, don't even watch the show. Just watch episode six for the dancing. I'll send it to you.

Bonnie is seriously awesome - SHE LIGHTS FIRES WITH HER MIND. I really want her to be my BFF so I can help her find things to start on fire. I'm that kind of awesome friend.

I'm still thinking how I can write to the SV producers and show them Elena as an example of how to do a character with a tragic past right. There really isn't a character I don't like on this show. Well, Caroline, but you're not supposed to like her, and there's this pity thing going on? Anyway.

The Vampire Diaries! Yay! svmadelyn and I spent part of one night mapping out the plot arc this season, since they seem to be keeping certain elements from the books, please let them keep this element, please.

Anyway, for those who are interested:

salvatoreslash - for all your Damon/Stefan incest needs. Did I mention they are both ungodly hot, Stefan is angsty, and Damon is amoral, fashion conscious, and bites people a lot?

tvdnewsletter - for all your The Vampire Diaries newsletter needs!

I don't want to say you should write this fandom so I have more fic to entertain me. But that's kind of my motivation here.


So I added another four thousand words to Trek fic, and it's now--well, longer. I mean, I can see the end! But by the time I finish this no one will care, which is actually kind of motivating. That means I can skip spellcheck! Which hates me. Really.

Last check, my WIP list in Merlin, Star Trek, The Vampire Diaries, Due South, and Heroes is not getting shorter. There's a fair to good chance they will rise up and kill me in my sleep. I'm weirdly okay with that; it means I would get to sleep. And not be reorganizing my computer by the light of the stars.

Current News

I'm trying to figure out how to fall asleep under my desk without anyone noticing.

I was up until 2:45 reading that freaking soap fic. I--I was in the middle of a dream about said soap fic when I woke up cruelly this morning. Let me know if you figure out a way to fall asleep under your desk, 'cause that could come in handy today.

I'm still trying. *bitter* WHY MUST PEOPLE BE NEARBY?

It picks up? Really? I adore the books, but stopped with the show after the first episode. I was getting a whole 'Lana' vibe from Elena and I just couldn't stomach it... darn it, now I'm gonna have to give it another chance. :)

Seriously, Elena is really fun, and the show gets tons better by four. And I will say this--I would watch Elena BE Lana to get episode six. Though you have to see five to appreciate how deeply screwedup six is. *GLEE*

Ok, that dude needs to not. Just... not. Cuz wtf? *hugs*

can you report him to the police for harrassment? that's just not on.

I will care, and I will note for spellchecking. *raises eyebrow*

Also, Damon Salvatore dancing to "Enjoy the Silence" can never be topped. Well, unless he's a pushy bottom.

Also the second - you have never finished watching Farscape so you can write fic for me. Hmph!

Speaking for myself, I CARE OMG!

*joins ranks of people who care*

you're writing TREK FIC?!? Really? Awesome!

The sequel to the last one. And this one? Will not end. God.

Last check, my WIP list in Merlin, Star Trek, The Vampire Diaries, Due South, and Heroes is not getting shorter. There's a fair to good chance they will rise up and kill me in my sleep.

I hear that actually happened to Robert Jordan. That's the danger of creating a cast of thousands and then doing not very much with them over an extraordinarily long time. RIP, RJ. RIP.

I totally care about your Trek fic. Carebears do not care as much as I care. :)

It pleases me to see more and more people pimping this show. And I agree with you, episode four is where it turned for me from slashy (possibly the slashiest EVER) eyecandy to a show with characters I really cared about, and which I am proud to be completely head-over-heels obsessed with.

As for the books? There is a scene in the first one that if they included it? I think I would die blissfully happy. UNF. They are both so hot it kills me.

Thanks so much for the comm pimpage, doll :)

I await more Damon/Stefan fic from you with glee.

If there's two things I love, it's Steve McQueen and Depeche Mode. And I couldn't get through the first two episodes, so please send it to me!

...What element are you guys hoping will show up? :D?

Katherine comes back.


The people who care about the Star Trek fic are legion.

And we don't care about spelling.

Vampire Diaries is awesome. Yes to everything you've said. The thing that I love so much is that I can't even pick a favorite character because they're all so shiny and new (Bonnie is the most awesomest though) and do absolutely ridiculous things.

Also, Katherine better come back and be absolutely crazy.

And the brothers should make out but, *points to icon* I've been saying those words for a while now and it never seems to have any effect.

I'd settle for biting, you know?

..oh man, we are in fandom where brothers can bite each other.
