Thanks to the lovely [personal profile] visiblemarket, I now have two new bunnies, never mind that I owe someone a fill on the Grimm kinkmeme and I have a ridiculously long sequel to write, I now have two new bunnies.

This is too cute.

This one just invites mischievousness.

I really, really do. Heroes. POTC. I got an urge to read Sparrington aka. Jack Sparrow/Norrington about a month ago and started searching on the web for some old stories and whatever was new since the last time I looked, which was years ago. 2009, maybe. I knew the fandom had gone pretty downhill by then, but damn. It makes sense, though. Most fandoms don't last forever. It's amazing there's still activity at all and quite a few, too, just not the kind I remember. This wouldn't bug me so much if it weren't POTC. I would like to say that it's because of the age of sail aspect, because every time I see a ship with sails I am drawn to it (literally; I'll be in the middle of a conversation, I see a painting of a sailing ship across the room and I forget everything and go straight to it), but I never got into Aubrey/Maturin and Hornblower fandoms like I got into this one. The characters in POTC moved me and inspired me much like the ones in Heroes. I just had to keep on watching and reading and writing and commenting (though I wound up writing and commenting much more for Heroes). I had some hope that there was a new movie coming out, though I'm not sure what I was hoping for, since I wasn't happy with the idea of a new movie to begin with and both my OTPs (Pintel/Ragetti) was the other one) being out of the picture (because of course they wouldn't bring back Norrington even though they keep resurrecting everyone else, because he's my favorite character and my favorite characters always stay dead dead dead, which is the only reason I'm kinda glad they never brought back Claude in Heroes, because then they would have definitely killed him because they always do that to my characters and CE has such a penchant for dying on set).

I'm a little afraid of looking at the Heroes comms. Is there still something going on?

I haven't even thought about fandoms in a while. Not only have I had to time for one, but I haven't seen anything that I've felt fannish about. It's weird. What's a fangirl without a fandom?

On a different note: Hello! I live, though my life is quite boring lately. I decided, against my better judgement (the muse is a cruel mistress), to write a novel set in the Henrician Era, so I've been mired by research, research, and more research. Right now, I should be typing up notes, but I don't feel like it. I've missed LJ. My life these past months has been all library books and photocopies.

I'm back in Puerto Rico for now. Not much going on here, either.
I can't get used to this. Sure, in London by four it was already black, but it should not be dark at five. I don't care what spot of the planet I'm on. This never stops feeling weird. I need to get earlier. I get like four hours of sunshine now. So wrong.

After two days of not writing more than 300 words, I finally wrote 2,000 today, although I'm still really distracted. And now my shoulder blades hurt. Ow.

I also went out with my cousin and his son yesterday to watch 2012 (and buy socks) )

I almost forgot about Heroes! Again! I'm not sure I want to watch this episode. *shields Peter's eyes* I am way too attached.
Today's breakfast time: 2:30
Lunchtime:7:30. PM. I don't care if it was already dark. It was the second meal of the day, so I'm calling it lunch.

I made myself a deadline to finish a fic and within a determined word count for the first time ever. Basically because it's for an anthology whose submission deadline is Nov. 30, so I have to hurry. I've got a fun idea going, so we'll see how that goes.

Heroes is tomorrow. We'll see how that goes, too. I'm a little worried after last week's episode. And right after I'd stopped worrying, too.
From waking up at 9 (I haven't woken up before 10:30 in weeks), to being stuffed in a car for an hour, to writing, to watching a horrible Heores episode to reading up on the state of gay fiction and excessive defensiveness to writing some more until my body hurts and my stomach is annoyingly hungry to hearing from someone who had great insider information during the writer's strike that a certain possible firing effectively kills a storyline that should have been one of the strongest this season, but which the writer's have turned into repetitive mush. I'm too tired to even react anymore.

I've noticed something. Discussing Heroes online works while in real life it really doesn't. Mostly because online I can chose what discussions to take part of while in real life I always end up talking to someone whose opinion is the opposite of mine. The first time the person I was talking to liked volume 3 and though Peter was kinda pointless without his original endless powers. After my trying to explain my view resulted in a confused stare, a change in subject rapidly ensued. Yesterday it was over someone complaining that Mohinder has disappeared and that he's not even doing the voiceovers anymore, at which I instantly thought, "That's why the voiceovers don't annoy me anymore!" But of course I couldn't say that. I just stayed very quiet and turned over the meatballs on the stove. I hate disagreeing so thoroughly with people's fannish opinions to their face. It's so awkward. Oh, and don't even bring up Claude.


"The invisible guy?"

*blank stare* "Oh yeah, that guy."


How am I supposed to have a conversation with people?
1,450 words. One scene. I cannot believe myself. I was afraid of going back to this thing because it's the bunny that spawned the novel that started this whole Tudor madness, as well as the one I'm writing now, but I guess the amount of bunnies it can give me are washed out. It feels odd, but good.

I've wasted entirely too much time today looking for gay novels to buy. I'm in one of those binges I go into. I need to stop.

I missed the first 20 minutes of Heroes thinking it was on at eight since the other shows I watch are at eight and I'm not used anymore to having to sit in front of the tv at an appointed time. Every Monday I'm this close from missing the beginning. I guess it had to happen eventually.

Since my body seems to hate itself, I hit my knee today, so I'm limping again. Oh, well. After couple of days, it'll be fine. It's not as bad as last time. This happens to me all the time.
The books are watching me. As I sit, a humongous pile of unread history books stands less than two feet from my chair, quilting me with its unshrinking presence. Perhaps if I stare at it long enough I shall automatically absorb the information into my brain. *stares* Damnit, it's not working.

I seem to have accidentally called one of my characters Charlie Browne, not remembering the other Charlie Brown as I had not sounded the whole name together until two hours later when it smacked me upside the head. Hast surname changing ensued. I don't know how that happened. I have the sudden urge to call someone Snoopy.

Heroes was good. Certain things are making the OTP fangirl in me not so happy )
My nephew came over and fixed it. It was the router not recognizing the new modem, like I thought.

Also, I see that someone has opened a Heroes fandom secrets com. I'm not sure I want to look at it because so many of my opinions differ from the majority of fandom. It tends to put me in a bad mood. My policy lately has been to stick to the corners of fandom that share my key opinions and where I can have intelligent discussions about the others, not wank, and let the rest of fandom do whatever it wants to do.

I'm sitting in the living room right now half listening to a telenovela playing on tv and I can't help laughing. Oh god, the melodrama! With the over the top music thundering every time someone says, "I don't love you" or "You are going to pay." So why am I getting the urge to start watching these things again? Oh yes, because my cousin (male, by the way) keeps going on about them.

It appears that the modem and the router just don't like each other. It's supposed to work according to my nephew, his girlfriend and another friend, all computer science majors. It just isn't. Great.

I just bought another m/m novel. I am so disappointed in myself. I said I was under no circumstances going to buy any more novels until I made a dent into my unread novels pile all I need is to read some slash and all my discipline goes flying out the window. In my defensa, it was only five dollars.

Is it Monday yet? It's so nice to be able to safely look forward to Heroes again. Now watch. Because I said that, the next episode is going to suck.
To celebrate my almost, nearly there freedom, here's a tiny thing that's been sitting in my hard drive for ages.

Title: Just Another Day
Rating: PG
Pairing: Peter/Claude
Summary: Claude goes spine hunting. You heard me.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but my own words.

“Let me ask you something,” Claude asked )
The last piece of fic I uploaded was on 11 June?! Damn. It's been forever. Stupid thesis. Well, in any case, here's a little something I wrote before leaving for... somewhere. I needed amusement. Oh, wait, I remember. I think a conversation with [personal profile] visiblemarket might have inspired this.

Title: The Five Ws
Rating: PG
Pairing: Peter/Claude
Summary: Claude decides to ruin Nathan's day.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but my own words.

Millennia of vengeful backstabbers agree that when it comes to getting your point across, short and sweet is often the most satisfying solution )
some thesis ranting )
Heroes/Buffy hodgepodge )

Apparently, Milo will be on Jimmy Kimmel tomorrow. So I guess I'll finally find out who Jimmy Kimmel is (I hardly watch television, okay? I don't have HBO here. *cries*).

Almost done with BSG. Just one more DVD, Razor, and Caprica and I'm done. Oh, and then there's The Plan. And there's a series for Caprica coming out Jan. 22! That is so awesome. BSG is one of the best shows I've seen in a long time. I don't even mind the spaceships. I don't care how sacrilegious this sounds, but since I don't consider myself a sci-fi fan (though I might have to revise that given how many sci-fi series I'm accumulating), it doesn't feel so sacrilegious. I like it better than Star Wars. Watching these characters totally makes me want to get off my ass and do something.

Hey, I think I'm starting to feel better.

That's the second time I forget about the latest episode of True Blood because I'm stuck watching BSG. Last week, I didn't see episode 10 until Thursday. And now, even though I've downloaded the latest episode of True Blood, I want to keep watching BSG. *headdesk*

Small Heroes question. How old is Nathan in 2006? I confess that I've never had any clue and I might or might not use it in a story.

3,000 words into the original slash. Yay! I spent fifteen minutes coming up with their names, which is actually a short time for me since I'm always so particular about my people's names. At least I didn't go with Aztec/Mayan words this time.

It has come to my attention that I have to start writing this thesis soon since I am almost done with the sources I can look at here and I have time now, but I don't want to. But if I don't, I will regret it later, because one month of solid essay writing is too damn much.

And what the hell is it with these ridiculous London prices. For day tours in Scotland I found prices from 22 to 39 pounds. In Wales, 40. In London, 69. For essentially the same thing. The. Hell? I hate tourist prices so much.

musings of POTC and Heroes )
After spending a ridiculous amount of time trying to find day tours in Wales, I found only one company that doesn't insist that I pay exorbitant amounts of money, stay at a hostel, or request that I make the trip myself. However, I find it very amusing that on their booking page they insist on referring to themselves in the third person as "The Company". Should I feel threatened? I'm not sure.
Title: In Ashes Lies the Path to Redemption
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Peter/Claude
Summary: Set between Volume 3 and 4. Claude had never given much credence to the idea of guardian angels.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but my own words.

And then he saw him. His guardian angel )
