I'm doing a sticky post with my Big Bang dates so I can keep track of everything I'm supposed to be doing. They're in order of dates. Progress is under the cuts.

1) [ profile] pre_post_spnbb - 10,000 word draft due April 15
Summary: The Winchester brothers meet Leverage Inc while trying to heist the same item. Turns out what they're trying to steal is cursed. Then things get complicated.
I need serious help )

2) [ profile] crossbigbang - 15,000 word draft due April 20
Summary: Castiel is an angel of the Lord using Jimmy Novak as a vessel. Dean is the righteous man destined to save Humanity. Together they fight crimemonsters. Now the BAU is investigating a bizzare string of grave desicrations, arsons, exorcisms gone wrong and homicides that don't look humanly possible.
Feel good about this one. )

3) [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang - 20,000 word draft due May 1
Summary: Growing up can't be easy for the gay or sexually confused. When Jensen and Jared meet in college, they're well on their way to being the men they were shaped into. Their friendship gives them the strength to change. And then their friendship changes. (A long, slow J2 romance).
There be words written down )

4) [ profile] darkangel_bb - 10,000 word draft due May 30
Summary: An AU for the second season of Dark Angel, told from Alec's point of view. Likely going to be Max/Alec.

4) [ profile] scifibigbang - 25,000 word draft due July 1
Summary: The Master is determined to obtain his own Tardis, and will stop at nothing to get it. Gwen Cooper/Williams finds herself in possession of a mysterious briefcase that doesn't really seem worth dying over. Captain Jack Harkness is in prison, but he knows what to do with the briefcase. And why is Ianto working for the Master? This is a Torchwood remake of the movie Willow, with Gwen as Willow, Jack as Madmartigan, Ianto as Sorcha, Tosh and Owen as Brownies (IDEK), and The Master as Queen Bavmorda.

5) [ profile] au_bigbang - 15,000 word draft due July 1
Summary: When implanted in a person's wrist, a TiMER counts down to the day the wearer finds true love. But Jared faces a rare dillema: his TiMER is blank. His soul mate doesn't have her TiMER implanted yet. Tired of waiting Jared decides to find love on his own. (A J2 remake of the movie Timer).

6) [ profile] deancasbigbang - 20,000 word draft due August 15
Summary: A sequel to A Love Story Told In Reverse. It's tentatively titled The Apocalypse Told on Repeat.

7) [ profile] j2_kane_bigbang - 10,000 word draft due August 31.
Summary: Not totally planned out yet, but it's going to be about polyamoury, featuring Jensen married to Danneel with a side of J2. It should be fun.

I'll keep updating this as I go. Draft dates will change to posting dates, and I'll add more Big Bangs as I go.

Last weekend I went to Windsor to hang with [personal profile] fleshlycherry and [ profile] jebbypal (whom I got to meet for the first time in person \o/!). Anyway, they discussed the fact that I've nevemr watched all of Firefly, despite the fact that I've watched Serenity, and I own the DVDs. Long story short, we had a good time and they made me watch more Firefly. I'm nearly finished the series, and now I'm kind of jonesing for some good fanfic set post series (but before Serenity).

I'm hoping you guys can help :)

Also, did anyone know Frank Lehne (Azazel from Supernatural) was in Firefly? It always makes me happy when I see him in things). In my mind, every time I see a demon from Supernatural in a future series (actually, just Mark Sheppard and Frank Lehne, who were both in Firefly, too), it makes me think of writing fic where Crowley and Azazel are still alive and doing bad things. Actually, mainly just Crowley, because Mark Sheppard plays really similar characters and is always awesome.

Hey guys, I'm alive. Real life has been busy, mostly with work, a few concerts, work, a vacation, work, a minor car accident, and more work. And did I mention the work? I was in the lab until 4:30 am on Monday, and then back again at 11am that same Monday.

I break my internet silence to hum and haw over the next season of Supernatural. It looks kind of awesome, because it still has Cas in it, but at the same time, it has an episode called Slash Fiction. While I enjoyed the con episode (for the most part), there's only so much fan service I can take.

As I mentioned to [personal profile] fleshlycherry before, Supernatural jumped the shark, and the shark's name was Castiel.

I had a crappy day at work, and now I'm listening to the recording of my dog this afternoon, and he has the unique ability to bark and carry on in his crate for 30 minutes straight. He seems to go on 30 minute intervals of sleeping and whining.

Did I mention he kind of got me evicted?

I'm moving into a super awesome apartment because of it, so I won't complain too much, but I'm now scrambling to pack everything for this weekend (and I'm out of boxes again), and I have to shell out 200$ to put Bizmark in day care so that I don't get evicted from the new place while I try to get him trained into his crate.

Long story short, I have 5 invite codes for Dreamwidth. First five people to comment get them.


dosciencetoit: (Default)

[personal profile] fleshlycherry/[ profile] fleshlycherry shared with me [ profile] toestastegood's Five Acts Meme, and I decided I had to participate. Because I fail at Big Bangs, maybe I can succeed at comment fics. (There will be a long post about real life being crazy and awesome and messed up to explain why I fail at BBs. Just need to upload photographic evidence [PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN]).

Here's how it works:

+ Post a list of your five favorite acts/kinks to read about. Check out this list if you need some inspiration. At the bottom of your post, add what fandoms/pairings you're interested in.
+ Read other people's lists; the master list of lists is here.
+ Post comment-fic based off of other people's interests.


1) Rimming: There's just something filthy and delightful about it. Especially when written from the receiving party's perspective.
2) Falling: Falling from grace, going rebel, breaking away from expectations, exploring deviant desires; there's just something titillating about a character embracing their dark sides.
3)Exploring sexual orientation/new kinks: Especially when it includes angst about wanting something they don't think it's "right."
4) Restraint and D/s: Not to be confused with BDSM (which I also enjoy), I'm talking about one person telling the other what to do. Throw in a little manhandling, and self-restraint (i.e. one partner telling the other NOT TO MOVE), and I'm golden.
5) Double Penetration Because I'm really that dirty ;)

Turns out favourite pairings are first for each fandom.

Supernatural: Dean/Castiel, Wincest
CWRPF: Jensen/Jared, Jensen/Kane, J3, Jensen/Misha, J2M
Merlin: Merlin/Arthur, Gwen/Morgana, Gwen/Lancelot
Torchwood: Jack/Ianto, Tosh/Owen
Leverage: Eliot/Parker/Hardison, Parker/Hardison

That's it for now. I'm going to go work on some comment fic :)

OMG GUYS!!! This episode of Supernatural gave me FEEELINGS! That's all I'm going to say now.

On a slightly related note, I fail at Big Bangs. I've had to drop out of most of the big bangs that I signed up for so far. Real life problems have been kicking my ass. I'm still doing the [ profile] aubigbang, using the story I'd started for the [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang. I'm going to rearrange the other bangs as challenges come up.

I fail at real life. I'm blaming Bizmark, because he is cute, but time consuming and stress inducing.

In other news, I was pumped about the Canadian elections. I voted in the advanced polls and watched the results role in from 9 pm on Monday until Priminister Harper gave his speech at 1 am. I'm not upset we have a Conservative minority, and I'm not upset it's Harper. I think he likes being Priminister enough not to mess up social issues (i.e. gay marriage, abortion, etc...) and we need his economic policies still. At the same time, I think it's awesome that the NDP is now officially the opposition. Sure, they have less power than they would in a minority, but at the same time, we have a socially responsible party there to represent these issues. On the whole, Canada is pretty left leaning in their social views, and any party in power needs to cater to that.

Can't wait to see what happens with the provincial elections.

So, I should be writing or doing lab work, but instead I'm doing memes. Because that's just how I roll.

Meme the first, stolen from [personal profile] fleshlycherry/[ profile] fleshlycherry: Ask me to take pictures of any aspect of my life that you're interested in or curious about. Leave your request as a comment to this entry, I'll snap the pictures and post them.

For Meme the second, stolen from [ profile] paracaerouvoar, there are spoilers for Full Metal Alchemist, Supernatural, and Final Fantasy VIII.

I'm now 1,000 words into my Leverage/SPN fic. Only 9,000 to go. Five days left to do it!

On the plus side, my afternoon is pretty open (might even go to donate blood), so I'll have some time to write. Bizmark starts puppy classes tonight, though, so there's an hour I don't have.

In other news, [personal profile] fleshlycherry/[ profile] fleshlycherry linked me to [ profile] inlovewithnight, who posted a meme that is relevant to my interests and 90% of my conversations with Cherry. It's SFW, but contains comments about kink, just to warn.

Fictional Kink Meme )

I realized I have very little time to write three big bangs. I'm working on [ profile] pre_post_spnbb right now, with about 400 words, and the 10,000 word draft is due Friday >.>

On the plus side, with a stroke of inspiration I've decided the cursed item is a bangle, and Sophie puts it on, which is why she's the one to get cursed.

Wish me luck. Another 9,600 words to go! I'll keep you guys posted with issues and progress.

Hey flist!

Just a heads up. I've also created a Dreamwidth account, courtesy of [personal profile] fleshlycherry. I was extremely bored after the LJ downtime, so I've broadened my horizons. If you're on Dreamwidth, friend me [personal profile] dosciencetoit.

Really, though, odds are I'm just going to be doing a lot of crossposting from here.

Thinking of getting an ao3 account. Any thoughts?

[Poll #1727082]Criminal Minds/SPN BB is all plotted out for the [Poll #1727083]

Feels good to be posting about BigBangs again.

Thank goodness for LJ drafts and the autosaving function. I typed up this long rant (under the cut), that boils down to "No one I know in London wants to discuss issues relevant in the world today, and instead want to watch 'Reality TV.' Not that I'm poopooing RTV, I just think people should have a better grasp on what's going on in the world around them. Then my computer got a virus, and it's eliminated my ability to run a virus scan, system restore, or any malware programs. Any suggestions?

On another note, three things.

1) It's snowing. Admittedly, it's mostly rain at the moment, but an hour ago there were large, white flakes. I'm 100% done with this whole snow thing. Just so you know.

2) Pet peeve of mine, when people aren't consistant in their use of verb tenses. I think one of the first things an author should consider before words hit paper/screen, should be to decide whether they want to write it in past or present tense. THEN STICK WITH IT.

3) As part of my whole "I JUST HIT THE RESET BUTTON" thing, I'm trying to decide if I want to enter the dating world again. More specifically, I'm trying to decide if I want to ask a guy that I met last weekend out for dinner. He's fun, seems to have a good sense of humor (i.e. can laugh at himself), in is in the same position in life as I am. (Context: the last guy I dated had very little drive or direction in his life while I was ready for "bigger and better things." The guy before that had never gone to college/univeristy, had declared bankrupcy in the past, and had a five year old son. He didn't really understand why I wanted to stay in and study, and I couldn't handle kids at the time).

I've just never asked a guy out before. I'm always the askee.

Any advice for asking a guy out, or encouraging him to ask me out?

Onto yesterday's random rant. )

dosciencetoit: (Default)

[ profile] fleshlycherry mentioned that she was going to let life suck until April, and since today is April 1st, she has pressed the reset button. I thought this was a good idea, and I am joining her.

My life has been a bit of a mess since last fall, with my medical mystery (AKA stomach problems of doom) and a diagnosis of clinical depression. I hit rock bottom in the beginning of March with a full blown panic attack, and things have slowly been getting better since then, but I'm still not on the ball when it comes to work or relationships.

So, today I hit the reset button. I'm going to be more organized, more motivated and happier. I'm going to start with getting Bizmark (the most adorable puppy ever) on a regular schedule. This means getting up at 6:00 am (something I've been trying to do since last summer), and getting him going to the bathroom every 2 hours when I'm home with him. It also means walking him more, which will in turn make me feel better.

Next, I'm going to finish the stupid grant thing that has been killing me since the end of February. I keep putting it off for no good reason, even though I know it's well written and there isn't much to fix. I'm going to reward myself with Season 5 of Bones, ice cream from Marble Slab, and the ability to fully concentrate on my Big Bangs.

Then, I'm going to plan out my experiments and be more consistant with getting into the lab on time. No more dawdling in my appartment until 10am. I will be in the lab by 8:30 every day, and I will be out by 4:30. And I will spend my lab time actually working (though there will be breaks where I snack and talk to [ profile] fleshlycherry, because what else is science for.

Finally, I'm going to make more of an effort to hang with friends. I've been putting off having M come to visit since I last saw him in August, so I'll firm up plans. Then, I will make more of an effort to get out with the friends I have in London. It's easier, because we've started doing puppy play dates, but I want to get back to going out to trivia, or going to see movies. Finally, I'm going to start going to the dog park once Bizmark is old enough. I want to go the same time twice a week so that Bizmark and I can both make friends.

Reset button is now pushed! I invite you to do the same. It's like New Years resolutions, but with sunny weather and the advent of spring upon us ;)

Dear Self:

Just because you ignore your e-mails does not mean that the real world and work isn't happening around you. People start to freak out if you go MIA on the internet for a while. No, puppies and health aren't an excuse. Check your e-mail once a day like you're supposed to.

Love, me.

In other news, Bizmark is growing nicely, but I seem to be his favourite chew toy. I've been trying to follow the advice of Cesar Millan (aka The Dog Whisperer), but it doesn't work well when it's too cold outside to take the puppy for his nice walks he got used to the other week.

Also, I had a conversation with [ profile] fleshlycherry which was deemed the Best Thing On The Internet Today. Back story isn't really needed.

[ profile] notragicmercury: You could always do the thing where you're open and ask him his thoughts on makeouts, heavy petting and oral sex?
[ profile] fleshlycherry: Don't make me laugh like that at work! OH MY GOD BEST THING ON THE INTERNET TODAY< RIGHT THERE.
[ profile] notragicmercury: CHADIFY IT!
[ profile] fleshlycherry: Chad: You would always do that girly talking shit you like so much. Ask him how he *makes airquotes* feels about your tongue in his mouth or your sasquatch paw on his dick. And, like, tell him if you're good blow your load in his face 'cause you're a gentleman like that son.

Chad always twists things into a J2 context.

I'm a terrible person because I'll rarely donate to overseas charities. I agree what's happening in Japan is terrible, but with my limited income (more limited now that I have Bizmark), I'd rather donate to this close to my heart and closer to home.

That said, I will do things to make other people donate to help out Japan. [ profile] allthingsholy is doing a Write for Relief: A Fandom Charity Fundraiser to help raise funds. There are a list of charities over at [ profile] help_japan that people can donate to. I'm covering three prompts (Supernatural, Leverage and Dark Angel) or 1000 words or more.

Yes, I know I have a bazillion other things to write, but I've got ideas for each fic, and they'll help me practice writing the characters. It takes me about an hour to write 1,000 words when I'm on a role, so it should be good.

Anyone interested in beta-ing any of these, just let me know.

Last night the puppy let me sleep through the night again (mostly) and didn't pee in his crate. Peed twice in his crate yesterday, telling me he honestly can't go more than two hours alone >.> I'm now planning my days/experiments accordingly.

On that note, with my 6 hours of relatively uninterrupted sleep, I had a dream that Dean and Castiel were a couple in canon, and Dean would get flustered every time Cas refered to him as his boyfriend, or did something "Because Dean is his boyfriend." It was like fanfiction, IN MY BRAIN!

Great night sleep.

On another note, [ profile] pre_post_spnbb draft is due in a month. Going to start writing that in earnest, now. Go Dean/Cas/Eliot FTW!

So, I've been going through some crap lately, to the point that visits from my family have increased exponentially. It stems from my medical mystery [A.K.A. WTF is with my stomach?].

None of that really matters now, though, because I HAVE A PUPPY!

His name is Bizmark, he weighs 6 lbs at the moment, and he is made of awesome cuteness.


My brother spent the weekend with me and we picked him up on Saturday afternoon. He's been checked over by the vet and up to date on shots and deemed healthy. He's sleeping in my lap as I type, and he's pretty quite most of the time. Now I just need to housetrain him and get him to stop crying when he's in his crate.

The internet has been somewhat borning lately. Does anyone have any good fic recs?

dosciencetoit: (Default)

I'm listening to the first two singles from Patrick Wolf's new album, and while they're happy, they kind of make me teary eyed. Time of My Life is the first one, and The City is the second. I think his new album (Lupercalia) is coming out in May. It's sounding a little more upbeat that some of his other work. Reminds me a lot of The Overture, which is my favourite song by him. More like his album The Magic Position than The Bachelor.

Anyway, I coupled this with reading a death!fic that was halfway decent, and I kind of want to write the fic where the characters deal with terminal illness, and the surviving character doesn't go on to find true love again.

I'm not saying it in a depressing way, or that people shouldn't fall in love again after losing a loved one. I just want to show that there's nothing wrong with being faithful to the person you've lost either.

My grandmother lost her husband in 1960, and had to raise three children on her own. She was an attractive woman, and she could have remarried to support herself, but she knew no other man could be for her what my grandfather was, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Just saying

Thanks to [Poll #1716299]There will be more plotting details later, but that's it for now.  It's starting to shape up.
