No show tonight...

...so instead you just get me blathering...

Fanfiction Month so far has been a bit of a disappointment. I've only written ONE THING. I mean, in fairness, I am working full time and I'm trying to knit my sister a pair of slippers (which I've had to start over at least 4 times for various reasons....but when I am finished them, they will be the awesomest slippers that ever warmed my sister's feet.) So, yeah, Fanfiction Month might become Fanfiction TWO Months - and I'll write more in December or something. There were two prompts at the meme over at ohsam that I thought I could combine into some h/c p-p ("p-p" is my new short form for "porn without porn" since PWP would mislead people entirely...though, there wouldn't be plot either. So, it'd be "(p-p)wp" WHY DON'T WE JUST USE OUR WORDS!)

I also have the Supernatural/Merlin crossover to re-write and finish. The problem with that one is that I'm still really not sure what the point of the story is. It's shaping up to be more of a Merlin story (set between Merlin S4 and S5, and post-S6 of Supernatural); yet, I don't have a huge climatic "there's a lesson here for all of us" moment.

I really want to write more in my Merlin-Sherlock crossover 'verse, but I STILL have to wait until S3 of Sherlock and apparently the earliest that's going to happen is Fall 2013, so yeah..sigh. Sherlock is worth the wait, but, my god, it's a long wait.

I kind of want to write an S7-S8 AU where Sam and Cas have a one-way (or is it?!) psychic connection... but again, I'm not sure where I would go with it. 

In non-Fanfiction stuff...

Merlin is still new this Saturday. I might blather about the new episode and the past few episode again on here - since I'll probably have excess energy saved up from not talking about Supernatural. We'll see. We're past the midway point in the season, but still fairly far from the end. I'm one of the few fans (it seems) who actually really wants them to end the show this year. Not because it's not awesome (for what it is), but just because I think they've done all they can do with it, and it's better to go out with a bang than a whimper. (That what T.S. Eliot was trying to tell us, right? How to end our TV shows?)

Anyway... how are you guys?

I'm feeling actually pretty proud of myself, writing wise. I actually managed to finish (and see posted) a pinch hit for an exchange...and then I went and knocked one of my oldest WIPs off the list o' shame! Which considering the last time I really probably finished something in a way that felt truly complete was...oh, last march. And it's been a long, long time since the WIP list stopped growing.

Yay you! I just run into the problem where at the end of the day, I don't really feel much like writing and I'm bad at forcing myself to do it anyway. :P

I just kept getting about 3/4ths through something and hitting a huge wall. It wasn't exactly writer's block, it was just like....I ran out of things I wanted to say.

Yeah, exactly...mind you, since I usually write fics in my head before I go to the keyboard, it means that I usually get 3/4th of the way through thinking about something and then I hit a wall. :P

Being American I am happy to have a four day weekend. I did all my cooking tonight for tomorrow and I cleaned up. I'm bringing it to my mom's because her oven doesn't work. I rewatched last week's SPN while the turkey baked. It wad the third time with the episode and I just love its potential.

Cool! I keep forgetting it's the American holiday weekend... this is what happens when I'm not inundated with American TV, I guess. I only remember when I go on twitter or something.

I hope you have a good weekend! Sounds like it's off to a great start! :)
