How much horsepower do you think the Impala has? And I am talking HORSEpower.
So, I've been writing this Merlin/SPN crossover...and I got to about 12,000 words, and then tonight I went to write and I'm like "hmm, what scene am I writing next? Maybe I should outline the rest of this thing so that I'm more organized about this." So, I outlined. My OUTLINE is more than 1,000 words! This crossover doesn't even have a point! It's actually pretty dumb - it's more like an episode of Merlin than an episode of SPN. WHY IS IT SO LONG?
Oh man... anyway, yeah... now I'm all annoyed at myself, because I'm going to spend forever writing this thing, and it's probably going to disappoint everyone, because it's mostly about Merlin. (Mainly because unlike the demented'verse, Sam and Dean's angst doesn't matter in the slightest... I don't have them learning anything about themselves or each other by hanging out with Arthur and Merlin.) I mean, that might change. I could always sit on it to see what happens in the rest of S8, because maybe there's some Sam and Dean storyline that I could thread through...but at this point it's not looking likely. So, I kind of just have Sam and Dean from unknown-season where they're getting along and don't have an axe hanging over their head.
Anyway...um, yeah... in other news, I've been writing more demented'verse in my head... a story that I THOUGHT I could set in S8 of Supernatural, but sadly, I did the timeline math wrong and I'm going to have to wait until S9 :( ... which really sucks, because I want to write it NOW, but I need to know what SPN's plot is going to be so that I can work it in properly. And I don't have any ideas whatsoever for a story that could happen sooner. So...um, sorry demented'verse fans. I am as disappointed as you are. :(
Man, I am a bundle of bad news today.
