The glee-ish:

  • [personal profile] vaudevilles has written the most FABULOUS TrickyFish story; it's funny and witty and heart-stabby (but in a good way), there's snark out the wazoo and awesome characterization, and you can find it right here. Also? She says it's for ME!!! I am AGOG with glee.
  • [personal profile] rikes has hatted my TrickyFish icon, which makes me all kinds of happy, not to mention festive and seasonal. Well, in all accuracy, it makes Chris and Lance festive and seasonal, not me, but whatever, let's not be pedantic, shall we?
  • Christmas party at work tomorrow, which will be a welcome distraction from, well, you know. Work.
  • SeSa. The story might be making me want to bounce my head off the table, but I do enjoy the hive angst and all the supportive rah, rah, rah-ing.
The woe-ish:

  • SeSa, because in spite of the companionable angsting? ANGST. It's angstifying. And my story? Not getting anywhere fast. I'm writing by inches. Or half-inches.
  • Driver's license? Lost. God, if I've lost it in the hellhole that is my bedroom, I may never see it again.
  • Work. It's pretty work-y right now.
Oh, yes, on the glee squared list:
  • I forgot to mention NaNoWriMo at the end of November.  Last year I signed up and wrote exactly 0 words. This year?

It's a delightful story, isn't it! Was it written for a prompt in the sparklyglee challenge?

Well Done on the NaNoWriMo thing! What did you write?

God, I am so woefully behind in LIFE. Can't believe I haven't answered my comments. And yes, it was/is a delightful story, but I don't think it was written for a prompt in the sparklyglee challenge.

Thanks! I wrote a non-fandom-based story, which I described as mainstream fiction for the purpose of NaNoWriMo, but that's not really terribly descriptive. It's much different than my popslash, a bit bleak in spots, but ultimately not, or at least I don't think so. Essentially a story about finding redemption. Or something. Gah. Obviously I'm not ready to talk about it coherently yet. :)

Go you for NaNoWriMo! I'm so impressed!

The hive angst and supportive community thing is one of the only things that makes agreeing to write a story for someone else that can't be submitted late during the busiest time of the year survivable.

Sorry to be so late with responding. Kidnapped by life. It kind of sucks.

I was pretty impressed with myself with the NaNoWriMo thing, too! I spent a good part of December nights catching up on all the sleep I missed in November, which was considerable.

It's always a bit sad when the challenge is over, stories submitted and revealed. I'm at the "what now?" stage, and wondering whether to dive into Supernatural or fiddle around a bit more in popslash or maybe just twiddle my thumbs in indecision for a while longer. I have a Supernatural story started, but I'm about twenty pages in and not even 1/8th finished and thinking, oy. This looks like WORK.

This SeSa story really felt like my last one as I was writing it, and SPN is tempting me with its siren call. But the pop boys may yet have more to say to me, I don't know. I HAVE NO IDEA.

Congratulations on not killing your aunt, btw.

Your Dean icon. Guh. Yeah. Hard to resist that call, isn't it? I still have pop stories I'd like to write, but I don't know. Time will tell.

Hee. Thank you. You have NO IDEA the heroic effort I have invested in not killing her. It's EPIC.

It is indeed for you. Mostly because I cursed your name during it because I can't write dialogue like you. But then I forgave you. But only a little bit.

It's probably not all that great to get the person you're writing the story for to beta your fic. But. I *needed* you! (See, who says the ability to guilt trip goes away if you quit Catholicism?)

And I want to see your NaNo if I'm allowed.

Hee! (Sorry, I'm way, way behind with EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE, but Hee! anyway.) I'm glad you forgave me, even if it was only a little bit. And your dialogue was great, what are you talking about??

Are you really an ex-Catholic? No wonder I like you so much. I have a weakness for ex-Catholics. Maybe it's because I grew up wishing I was Catholic, or maybe it's because ex-Catholics are just fabulously cool, I don't know.

Dude, if you're still interested in a couple of months, I will happily spoon-feed you my NaNo. Right now, I haven't looked at it since the end of November, partly because I needed to give myself some distance, but partly because I know it's CRAPULOUS in the extreme right now and needs vast amounts of WORK, WORK, WORK and filling in of GAPING GAPS and great huge reorganization of chapters and whatnot. Tomorrow I'll be diving in again, but it's going to take me at lease a couple of months before it's going to look like something I'd ever admit to writing. :) After that, though? PLEEEEAAAASE. I would be THRILLED to hear what you think!

Well with the willpower needed to avoid jail-time for murder I think life-slippage sounds eminently sensible.

And yep... Dad's Catholic and Mum's Anglican - I am a fabulous mix of catholic guilt and protestant work ethic, which is much akin to being martyred by papercuts and then refusing sainthood because the papercuts weren't interesting enough for canonisation. The small amount of time I spent in an evangelical church when I was 8 probably doesn't help - my mother's still got my pledge of temperance and my stick figure illustrated stories of The Book of Revelations somewhere for the amusement factor.

Hmmm... Obviously the confessional stuff stuck SOMEWHERE...

I will eat your NaNo with a spoon! It will be like triple chocolate raspberry icecream. If I hold my breath will you edit it faster?

And thank you for the dialogue comment, it's the thing I find most difficult in writing. Hell I almost gave Justin laryngitis in my MTYG story because I couldn't find the little bastard's voice. Then I realised that it was set during the NSA tour and therefore laryngitis possibly was breaking with canon JUST A LITTLE.

Yes, something's always got to give. I'd hate to have to visit myself in prison.

I have the guilt down pat, but I was born to be fabulously wealthy I think, so the work ethic, while there, isn't as robust as it could be. Except that I seem to spend an unholy amount of time working, so, um. Okay, I have that part down too. I'd give it up in a heartbeat should a lotto win befall me, though. IN A HEARTBEAT.

my stick figure illustrated stories of The Book of Revelations

Dude, you should totally find and scan those. I'm DYING to see them!!

If I hold my breath will you edit it faster?

Hee! Don't make me responsible for your smothercation!! But I will edit as fast as I can life will let me.

You're most welcome for the dialogue comment. Dude, I told you that the solution to the Justin voice problem was to keep Lance's dick in his mouth for the duration of the story. You just ignored my advice, which, after reading the story I have to admit was possibly a good thing. Your solution -- actually finding his voice -- worked much better than trying to figure out how Lance was going to get around with Justin attached to his crotch.

You do realise that now I want to write a story where Lance is a news anchor because it's the only profession where nobody will notice that Justin is constantly attached to his crotch?

You do realize that I want to read EXACTLY THAT STORY, don't you? Go on then, hop to it!

Unfortunately while hopping desperately towards that very story I appear to have broken something. Possibly my will to live.
