I cooked a meal for myself for the first time since I got back from Cuba! Stomach seems to be somewhat on the mend, which means the depressive mood lifts, too :) I had a hamburgur with sweet potato fries, and once I finish my salad I'm going to eat ice cream ;)

I finished season three of Leverage, and I really don't like this whole having to wait for the next season. I've signed up for [ profile] pre_post_spnbb and I'm going to do a SPN/Leverage cross over. The first time I saw Mark Sheppard in Leverage I shrugged and thought, "So that's how Crowley made his money." Then there's the Jensen Ackles, Chris Kane connection, so I couldn't resist.

Yes, I'm working on three Bangs right now >.>

On a musical note, does anyone know how I can get my hands on some of Kane's music?

Also, everyone should go out and listen to Mumford and Sons. I got their album Sigh No More yesterday, and I can't stop listening to it. I honestly like every song on it.

Back in September I took part in in [ profile] deancastiel's Secret Angel Exchange. They revealed the authors yesterday, so I can claim it now. I'd been dying to write a fic set to Flobot’s song by the same name. It was originally posted here.

I took this fandom meme from [ profile] larantula. I did it in the lab instead of going home, because I'm awesome like that.

Because I need something fun and without pressure, I've decided to sign up for a fanbingo card. I blame [ profile] temporalranger for this, and the fact that the cards are so shiny.

I mentioned I liked AUs, and this is what I got o.O I briefly thought about doing a verse for it, but the sheer volume of AUs makes it a little difficult. Think I'm just going to do prompts when I feel like it, any fandom.

Watching Deathly Hollows part 1 kind of makes me want to write Harry Potter again, but it's somehow developed into a SPN/HP crossover, and I'm not sure I can handle that.

Bobby Ex Machina!

That's about all I've got about this episode.

Title: A Love Story Told In Reverse, written for the 2010 [ profile] deancasbigbang
Author: [ profile] notragicmercury
Genre: Post Season 5 AU
Pairing(s): Dean/Castiel (also Dean/Lisa, Dean/Cassie, Castiel/OMC, mentions Sam/Jess).
Rating: R
Word Count: ~35,000
Warnings: Spoilers for Season 5. Allusions to abuse and mental disorders.

Artist: [ profile] lizfu
Art link: Art Masterlist

Summary: Dean grew up with a mother who loved him, a father who misunderstood him and a brother who worshiped him. Yet he remembered another life, one lived on the road, hunted by angels and demons alike. Plagued by false memories and familiar faces, Dean left home to try and make a life for himself. A chance meeting with a man who lives a world apart leads Dean to realize that a single action, no matter how miraculous, can't change the course of fate. It won't stop him from trying, though.

Author's Note: I have to thank [ profile] fleshlycherry and Draoldan for all of their help throughout the writing process. Neither of them are Dean/Cas fans, particularly, and yet they put up with me constantly asking for opinions, and the constant read throughs. They helped me hammer down plot, improve my writing, and always asked “Why?” when I said “Because.” I don’t think I would have finished without their help.

Next, I have to thank [ profile] dossier, who beta'd this after the fact, when I learned that scientists make terrible betas. Apparently we can't correct each other's work to save our lives, so [ profile] dossier was a bit of a life saver there.

I also want to thank [ profile] lizfu for the amazing artwork. Don’t forget to check it out and leave comments.

I have to tell you, the very first little bit of this is clouded by [ profile] fleshlycherry's influence. She's a Wincest shipper, but she got to me after I started shipping Dean/Cas, so my view of the Wincest is that it's entirely one sided.

Here, amide spoilers for The Third Man, is the reason why this is relevant: )

On a side note, everyone should go watch this Castiel-centric video, which features an awesome song by Florence and the Machine. I'm kind of in love with them, and this video, now.

Here be a short spoiler post. )

Also, there are times I think Lisa is awesome, and times I wonder what the writers were thinking.

I watched the premiere of season six, and on the whole, I actually liked it. I hated the finale of last seasons, because I thought the whole seasons built up an epic fight, and I was left feeling extremely underwhelmed.

I've been busy commenting on my flist's responses to the season premiere, but I thought I should probably make my own comprehensive post. There are some spoilers for rumours I heard from a friend but never verified about different kinds of mythologies they might be including in this season.

So here it is: )

I feel better now. Back to more productive things.

I'm finishing up the alpha read on one BB, beta-ing another, and revising my own this weekend. I also get my hair cut, I'm going to look into those Cuba trips, hang out with some old friends, and have cake for my Dad's B-day. Good times.

Start with the meme, which I keep forgetting:

Day 07 - The most heartbreaking scene? )

Day 08 - The pairing with the most baggage? )

Remaining days )

It's been such a long time since I've been able to use my go go science! tag. The last three weeks of work before I went on holidays was plagued by badly made common stocks that killed my cells, missing reagents, and the epic stress of grant writing season. I was getting dangerously close to the "I hate science and want to start [insert questionable career of your choice here, I'm thinking guppy breeding]."

That said, this week I've successfully cloned a mutation into one of the isoforms of my protein, and I've successfully detected SUMOylation of both isoforms.

In non-science terms, I've found something that contributes to our understanding of how certain nerve cells work. Ideally, this will shed light on what happens to our brains as we age and in different neurodegenerative diseases.

I've got another three to four years of work to do on this, but it isn't hopless!!!


Also, I'm going to go to Cuba next year! It's mostly exciting, because I haven't actually gone anywhere for vacation since I was seventeen. I managed to score an invite for a course in Brazil in April, which was a free trip there (the first time I'd left southern Ontario in six years), but this will be the first for pleasure only trip in a while. [ profile] bloodredmoon1, aka my awesome British friend, is in to go with me. We're waiting on a few more people, but I'll probably have the trip booked by next week.

On another note, I got feedback from [ profile] fleshlycherry about by D/C BB. Lots of sections to revise and rework because she calls me on it every time I fall into summarizing/skipping scenes, for being to wordy, and for waving my slash wand and going with the "because I said so" explanation. She didn't call me on my overuse of semicolons

I'm lucky she likes me as much as she does, because she isn't even a D/C shipper.

I've gotten to thinking about my NaNo, though, which is the sequel to the BB. I'm thinking it's going to need more Crowley, and after reading Good Omens, I've decided to go with the fact that it's the same demon. That said, should I include Aziraphale?

I'm also trying to decide if I should include the crossover bit that didn't actually get hinted in the BB. It's also trying to blend in with my [ profile] syfybigbang, because hey, that's the way my brain works, but I've put my foot down, because it's too ridiculous.

Which leads me to the only not awesome part of my day: What to do my syfy/merlin BB on?

Also, SPN premiere tomorrow! My dad's birthday party was rescheduled for Sunday, so I'll be able to watch the whole thing as it airs! I'm pathetically excited.

All of the positive vibes I'm grooving with right now have translated into helping me shed some of the weight I put on while sick, which is also happy making.
