I was lucky enough to get [livejournal.com profile] quietlyobsessed as my [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang artist, and she made some unbelievably gorgeous art to go with my story. ♥ Everyone should go and check it out!

I haven't actually had a chance to read any of the other little bang stories yet, except for The Last Two First Steps by [livejournal.com profile] jengrrrl, which I had the privilege of betaing, and omg. SO good. It kind of... makes me realise how much I miss them, while at the same time completely filling that void. ♥

Also: I've had a few people friend me today, presumably on the basis of the fic, so hi! But, um, here's the part where I point out that if fic is what you're here for, you might be a bit disappointed; when it comes to prolificacy, I'm like the anti-Sivi. (Although, I will actually be posting more fic on Monday, for [livejournal.com profile] femslash09, if I can manage to get this story to cooperate. But after that? Yeah, don't get your hopes up.)

And now I have feedback to respond to! I can't possibly say how much I appreciate everyone's lovely comments. ♥

- Okay, I know everyone in fandom has seen the Bleighton gaysplosion that happened last night, but I still have to link because, WOW. I'm still kind of amazed those photos even exist. Also, they're kind of making me miss Gossip Girl a bit. I still haven't caught up; apparently not even the prospect of MOAR GEORGINA has managed to lure me back. Sadface.

- I'm kind of annoyed that the deadline for [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang has been pushed back two weeks. Ugh, I'm so ready to post that motherfucker already. It's so rare for me to actively want to post any fic I write, so to not be able to is... a little frustrating.

- I've started properly working on my [livejournal.com profile] femslash09 fic and I'm having a lot of fun with it so far. I'm sure I'll start hating it in due course, but right now it's going really well. \o/

- Is anyone watching Wimbledon? It's the only tennis tournament I watch but I love it SO MUCH, and I'm getting stupidly excited about Andy Murray's chances. \o/ Also, lolling forever over the commentator's OBSESSION with the Centre Court roof. When will we finally see the roof in action?? I don't know about you, but I'm on TENTERHOOKS.
botherd: (skins: subtlest. crush. ever.)
Ughhh, it's too hot. I know I shouldn't complain about us actually having a summer for a change, but it's TOO HOT and I'm all sweaty and gross. WHICH YOU ALL WANTED TO KNOW.

LOL forever: I was up on campus today - using up the last of my printing credits by printing out my little bang fic for one last edit - and on the way back there was a COW ON THE FOOTPATH. I mean, what? I tried to get a photo but the camera on my phone was on video setting and by the time I'd sorted it out the cow had disappeared back into the valley. But I do have a one second video, lol.

alkdhfhj I just remembered I have the latest episode of Weeds to watch! Which means that this is the end of this pointless entry.
botherd: (skins: effy)
Wow, I haven't posted in a ridiculously long time. I wish I could say that that's because I've been busy having ~thrilling exploits~ but mostly I've just been doing fuck-all enjoying my last few weeks as a student (sob!). And also doing things like spending entire evenings revisiting ridiculous 90s pop music via Spotify and YouTube. Speaking of which, OMG, THE BODYSHAKIN' DANCE. LOL FOREVER.

Also, writing. My [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang fic is nearly done; all I need to do is take a look at my betas' comments and try to stop myself from printing it all out and going through it with a red pen again. (I've already done that, like, twice.) I'm posting a preview on Tuesday and then I guess the whole thing goes up in ten days? I reeeally want to know who my artist is. And, um, I hope I haven't fucked things over for them by ~reworking my fic a bit since the first draft. It's nothing too major, I've just cut a scene or two and shifted a section around, so I'm hoping it won't be a problem. :/ I guess we'll see!

... there was something else I was going to say, but I've forgotten. It was fascinating, I'm sure.

- Oh man, my sleep cycle is so monumentally fucked. I was up at 4:30am this morning (having gone to bed at, um, 4am, for no reason whatsoever) scribbling down a few sentences of my [livejournal.com profile] femslash09 fic. I've also been putting together a mix for it and it's turning out super angsty, which was not the plan at all. :/

- I'm going home for a couple of days tomorrow and I've made the drastic decision to NOT TAKE MY LAPTOP WITH ME. :O Which means that hopefully I can get some writing done; there's a section of my littlebang fic that desperately needs rewriting and I want to get it finished as soon as possible. (OMG JEN SORRY SORRY YOU'LL GET IT SOON *TEARS OUR HAIR*)

- On [livejournal.com profile] sivim27's recommendation I've been watching Popular and it's basically THE GREATEST THING EVER. Like, it's cracky and insane and hella slashy, and I love all those things about it, but I also just really like that it's a show with a mostly female cast because that's depressingly rare these days. And it doesn't revolve around stupid romantic relationships! Amazing.

- I have approximately zero interest in crappy indie thrillers, but I'm going to have to see this one purely for Strahotski. UNF. I didn't realise it was possible for someone to still be so hot whilst being, like, eaten by wolves or whatever.
botherd: (skins: fitch please)
So, I got my dissertation in on time! It wasn't quite the OMG MOMENTOUS OCCASION that I was expecting, although I was kind of ridiculously pleased by how shiny it looked once it was bound. TOO BAD IT SUCKS. I've pretty much resigned myself to getting a 2.1 at this point (she says, like that's some terrible mark) but whatevs. One more essay and then I'm done!

... and then I can move on to worrying about fic instead. I'm getting a bit stressed about [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang already, and weirdly nervous about the fact that some unknown person has my terrible first draft RIGHT NOW and has to try and make ART for it. :/ I blame this fandomsecret.

In other news, I don't even care about Doctor Who and haven't watched it in ages, but the new companion is pretty! I approve. [/shallow]
botherd: (death by computer)
You know what would be more fun than trying to complete my dissertation? SHOOTING MYSELF IN THE FACE. Uggghh, I'm basically expecting these next two weeks to be the WORST OF MY LIFE. (My dissertation is actually due in nine days, but then the lovely people at the English department decided to schedule our last 3000-word essay so it's due in four days later. DELIGHTFUL.)

...at least I got the first draft of my [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang fic in? Way to go, self, you'll be so impressed with your prioritising come results day. I'm always so aware of when I'm failing at life, and yet I CONTINUE TO DO SO.
botherd: (skins: incest and illegal)
- Ugh, I got 69 on my latest essay. Which, okay, is not a bad mark - especially considering that I wrote it on the day it was due, which also happened to be the day after 'Katie & Emily' aired, so I was spazzing out about that - but I feel like I might as well write a First off at this point. It's so tempting to just coast along to a 2.1, but then if I got one I'd only end up hating myself for not working harder.

- Speaking of working hard, and how I'm not doing it: my dissertation is due in three weeks and I'm entering full-blown panic mode about it, because I haven't done enough, and what I have done sucks, and ugh ugh ugh. It would help if my supervisor actually made even a basic effort to contact me, because if I had meetings and deadlines it would force me to produce SOMETHING, but he hasn't. Like, AT ALL. (Which means I should be proactive about it, but I hardly even have anything to show him.)

- Something semi-positive: my [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang fic is mostly typed up (five pages to go! *collapses*) but I'm dragging my feet on the last bit because I really, really don't want to have to re-read that absolutely godawful sex scene I wrote. :/ And it still needs a fuckload of work before I can even stomach sending it off to my betas, but at this stage my dissertation has to come first. :/ HOW AM I MEANT TO CONCENTRATE ON MY OWN TEDIOUS ORIGINAL CHARACTERS WHEN I JUST WANT TO WRITE FIC?

- LOL of the day, because, you know, I need one: in the toilets of the university library there's now a poster that... teaches you how to wash your hands. Because most people reach university age without learning that? It is, apparently, an EIGHT-STEP PROCESS. There are DIAGRAMS TO HELP YOU OUT. IDEK.
botherd: (btvs: hot!faith)
- I finished the first draft of my [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang fic! Except because I'm stupid I wrote it all longhand, so now I have ~19000 words to type up. D: I should get on that tomorrow, but I have The Bell Jar to read for Tuesday, so it might not happen.

- ajkdfhjkdgf also, I have my fucking dissertation to write. I HAVE LESS THAN FOUR WEEKS. D: D: D:

botherd: (skins: what is this fuckery?)
Ugh, I spent all day working on my fic for [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang (all day = five solid hours of writing, which is a lot for me) and all I have to show for it is the most mediocre sex scene ever written. And I still have another one to write. *sigh* At least wordcount-wise the fic is going well (~13500 words! *pwnz*).

And now it's 11:30 and I really want to go to bed (which is REALLY EARLY for me) but my friend Amie has asked me to proof-read her dissertation for grammar, and it's due in tomorrow. Ugh, it's TWELVE THOUSAND WORDS and about LAW. The legality of euthanasia, specifically. Fun times. :/
