Look, a Bechdel Test Comment Fic-a-Thon! Over at penny_lane_42's, on LJ, which kinda automatically guarantees awesomeness. There's lots of awesome prompts already and excellent fills which sometimes contain Shakespearean verse. I even left a Subnormality prompt, because hope shall forever spring eternal.

ETA: oooh, cross-journal referencing bug, apparently.

Yay! There's a Doomed Ship Comment Ficathon, and, though it sounds somewhat morose, it absolutely rocks. Excellent, excellent prompts. I've written schmoopy HP, angsty Being Human and torture-porny BtVS - none of it is particularly good, but it all helped resolve my life-sucks writer's block, so, I reiterate: yay!

Back to your regularly scheduled radio silence! <3

I have developed a tiny yet persistent crush on Nick Baker. I, apparently, love a man who can love a snot otter. To say nothing of the minuscule mole rat.  And he's the first person since Belle Starr to make wish to write RPF. I probably shan't, but he is just so cross-overable! Nick Baker's Affair With Luna Lovegood. Nick Baker on the TARDIS. (And I ship him with ALL the Doctors, because they'd love his honest enthusiam, but especially Eleven, and yes, this is because I want Matt Smith to hold an armadillo at some point.) Nick Baker Loves You Alot. Nick Baker Discovers Narnia. Nick Baker Finds Out Werewolves Exist and Promptly Begins To Date One. (I'm thinking Oz, because then they'd combine good music and weird animals and the world would explode of awesome.)

Of course, I shan't be writing Nick Baker Shags Everything fiction, because
1. RPF and I have a complicated relationship that I will eventually describe at ponderous length

2. my Damn Exam is in a week

3. I am working on [community profile] kink_bingo instead. I've abandoned all hope of meeting the deadline - pfft, who needs 'em - but I should greatly like to post a bingo in September, leaving October for Other Projects. (Somewhere in my secret heart, I would like to do ALL the squares by Yuletide. And then do Yuletide. For Fragile Things and an Eels album. No, this has no actual likelihood of happening.)

4. Apparently, I'm not actually interested in sex in written form. I had to partially complete 12 out of my 25 [community profile] kink_bingo squares to reach this conclusion. Perhaps I should have been clued in by the fact that I skip the sexing parts of most porns. I fast-forward to the juicy bits, like negotiation, pillowtalk and schmaltzy last sentences.

[This shan't actually hinder my [community profile] kink_bingoas I'm making up for it with elaborate thrashing scenes, Pretchett references, and G-rated Boy Meets World slavefic.]

 Let nobody diss the therapeutic effects of writing - and sending! - fan letters when one is down in the dumps. And, frankly, this whole month I've been 20 000 leagues underneath the dumps and playing Nazi Pope Skeleton poker.

Other things I've learned this week:
  • doodling song lyrics instead of taking notes is, not unlike swallowing pubic hair, something everyone has to go through sometime! [I'm 21 and it's a blazing new experience.]
  • if I want to go into academia, I will have to buy large spiffy necklaces
  • I truly don't want to go into academia

Also! A while ago I wrote and posted a ficlet about Tom and Martha and Mickey. I am hoping to craft it into a world, a world of polyamory and a 21st century Shakespeare [and probably this will somehow eventually allude to Chaucer Hath a Blog!]
