I think I might actually be bat shit crazy. [ profile] paracaerouvoar wanted to be reminded of what it would feel like to finish the Big Bangs. I responded with "Also, you will feel elated when you finish your BB. The endorphins will be pumping, and you will completely forget how much pain and suffering you went through to get there. Then you'll eat ice cream. It will be glorious!"

Now, I'm sitting here thinking... wait, that's actually how I felt after I finished the half marathon this morning o.O Well, that, plus a lot of pain and a large quantity of wine.

I finished the Disney Princess half Marathon in 2 hours, 56 minutes, and 48 seconds. My goal was to finish under 3 hours, so I'm ecstatic. I also came in 7991 out of nearly 17,000 registrants. *Does a happy dance*

Unfortunately, I'm already thinking of the next race I should do. (The Nike Women's Marathon in San Fransisco awards Tiffany's necklaces at the end of the race, and they're handed out by Firemen in Tuxedos. It's also in the Fall, so there would be no winter training in crazy snow). One of our team members also coaches for Triathlons, which would be super cool, and I'm considering doing a full marathon in the distant future.

So, like my writing, I'm apparently addicted to things that are far too long for any sane person to consider.

Because I'm bat shit crazy.


I'll post the photos and an story about all of my training on Tuesday, as well as the progress from the big bangs.

I feel kind of high right now. :)

[ profile] fleshlycherry of A Very Supernatural Weekend fame is coming to visit for an impromptu long weekend. We're going to see Finger Eleven in concert tonight (at a cowboy bar o.O, of all places), watching movies and writing drunken fic. I'm doing the Sex Is Not The Enemy Fic/Art/Whatever-a-thon, in which my prompt is somewhat uninspiring, but I'll be drinking, so it should get done first. Then I can write some more Big Bangs.

I've got three on the go right now:

1) [ profile] apocabigbang, rough draft due 5. I've got to get up to 10,000 words by next weekend, so wish me luck. It's a sequel to A Love Story Told In Reverse"

2) [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang, rough draft due May 1, and it's 20,000 words. It's going to be a long, slow J2 romance. I'm really looking forward to writing it.

3) [ profile] pre_post_spnbb, rough draft due April 7, and it's only 10,000 words. It's going to be a SPN/Leverage cross over, and as per [ profile] larantula's suggestion it's going to be some kind of messed up Dean/Cas/Eliot triangle/threesome thing, with a side of Hardison/Parker for the cute.

[ profile] fleshlycherry and I are also going to be watching Timer this weekend, in the hopes that she will get me to do a movie remix of it for my fan bingo card. That's all for now. I'll post photos if this weekend gets as epic as expected.

I've been talking a lot to my old university friend M while I've been sick, and it came up that I was writing the BigBang, and he kindly offered to beta/cheerlead for me. This is the conversation we just had:

Me: I'm writing a scene in the middle of the middle. I'm thinking it'll be the turning point in Dean and Cas' relationship, where Dean realizes he might not be entirely straight :)
M: they'd be cute together
Me: I'm torn between them being cute and them being epic, rough and explosive. Castiel can be pretty BAMF.
M: hmmm. couldn't you have a bit of both?
Me: Yeah, but I'm not sure what works best of this part.
M: like when Dean has his realization he wants it slow and cute, then eventually Cas has enough and bam, epic rough sex
Me: That, right there, made my day! But no, doesn't really work for the fic.

I sometimes forget how awesome M can be, which is unfortunate, because I've know him for years. I'm actually going to crash at his place for FanExpo, and I'm surprised with how much I'm looking forward to it.

For those of you following [ profile] fleshlycherry's flist, you'll note that last weekend there was an epic Supernatural weekend. The purpose was three fold. We wanted to watch as much Supernatural as humanly possible in three and a half days. I needed to brush up on canon for my big bang, and we seriously needed to catch up.

Here's a recap of what happened between July 22nd and July 25th:

A Very Supernatural Weekend )

Honourable mentions should go to Bobby, for whom we drank whiskey, the whiskey sours we consumed for Sam and Dean, since we didn't want to stomach straight whiskey, the law students, for whom we stomached Canadian and straight rum, and Zachariah, who gets the worm at the bottom of the bottle of tequila we never drank.

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cake Recipe )

Quotes worth mentioning:

1) "Because of course she did!" (refering to the Impala)
2) "Fuck [something]! Right in the face!"
3) "Salt lines; better than a locked door."
4) In Tall Tales, the professor says, "I respect you too much."
[ profile] fleshlycherry: "What? Like God respected Becky?"
5) "Drink everytime Sam gets choked."
6) "Those are the people who just lazied themselves to death."
7) "I find this humerus."
