Anyone looking for writing from me anytime soon... it's not going to happen.

I've been laid low by a series of medical things, the most recent of which is swine flu.

I've had to drop out of snarry_gamesstartrekbigbang is iffy right now.  hermionebigbang will be happening because that's complete, just awaiting revisions.

I will be completing the Away Mission series, but the eta on that is now unknown.  Same with the Verlona series.

My PoA review.
My GoF review.
My OotP review.

I will start with the essentials I asked for at the end of my OotP review:

My HBP essentials
  • Tom's backstory.

  • "You don't have to call me sir, Professor."

  • The "meeting" with Scrimgeour at the Burrow at Christmas in which Harry reasserts he's Dumbledore's man.

  • The Cave.

  • Harry chasing Snape post-Dumbledore in which we learn who the Half-Blood Prince is.


After seeing it for the second time, here are my thoughts:Collapse )

2009 Snarry Games


3825 / 7000 words. 55% done!

Due 7/27:  I have started this.  My anger at my house issues have helped me channel Snape -- hey, if it can't be Klingons, it can be Snape, right?  I wrote 3000 words today, it's not going in the direction I expected, I'm not where I wanted to be in the outline, Ginny's not behaving and neither is Snape.  I think it will be longer than 7000 words.  *sigh*


The ninth and final fic in the Away Mission series, "Faith."

150 / 10000 words. 2% done!

Goal 7/31:  The reality might be ~8/15 at this point.


Hermione Big Bang Challenge


20616 / 20000 words. 103% done!

Draft due 7/3 7/5:  Submitted!  Final due 9/6:  though I'm going to try to have mine done before that because that's my birthday weekend.





0 / 15000 words. 0% done!

Draft due 9/15:  I have a bunny for this, thanks to emiime for the spark.  I'm very afraid of this though because it could have the potential to be big and eat me alive.


My next Verlona series fic.

675 / 30000 words. 2% done!

I haven't worked any on this, but do have my research list.  I'm revising my completion date to end of year rather than end of summer, I think.


The "My Immortal" crossover series.
"How it began" fic:

1450 / 6000 words. 24% done!
Out of Time from the perspective of those in time:

560 / 2000 words. 28% done!

Hermione Big Bang Challenge


20616 / 20000 words. 103% done!

Draft due 7/3 7/5:  Done!  Done!  Just submitted after an extension.  I wrote 7,000 words in the last two days for this.  I just hope it's not shit and the people at Starbucks don't think I'm truly insane for the number of hours I spent there yesterday and today.  This also makes ~122,500 words completed so far this year.


2009 Snarry Games


300 / 7000 words. 4% done!

Due 7/27:  Now I can concentrate on this.  Gah.  I'm really hoping that the movie brings back my HP muse somewhat, but I'm not feeling a lot of HP love -- Warner Brothers moving the IMAX doesn't help.


The ninth and final fic in the Away Mission series, "Faith."

Draft due 9/15:  I signed up for this.  Given my Away Mission series, 15K should be no problem.  I'm an idiot.

[public post] Friday, 12 June 2009 @ 11.55 |  *scratches head* Er, Star Trek meta?
I thought that, in the Trek-future, we had progressed past money.  That was part of the humor of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home ("What is this 'exact change'?").

So what are all these fics that talk about credits and paying for things?

Or am I being way too Old School nerdy and this is an AOS thing and I should just go with it?

ETA:  Thank you, inell!

This is why I'm confused:
Although it has been stated on more than one occasion that the economy of the future was very different, and that money no longer existed in the Federation as late as the 24th century (Star Trek: First Contact), some sort of monetary system still existed and could be accessible to Federation citizens (see Other Mentions below).

"We saw the decade end and it seemed the world could change in the blink of an eye..."
-- Right Here, Right Now, Jesus Jones

Tiananmen Square, 4 June 1989
Photographer: Stuart Franklin Magnum, Source: life.com

To understand a bit about what 1989 meant, there has to be context.  I know some of you reading this are in your twenties -- and early twenties at that -- and intellectually know the time period, but not the feel of it.  And, I will admit, I'm doing nearly all of this by memory twenty years later, only looking up a few things for links.

For all that there is a sense of hope in America...Collapse )

It made for a strange nexus point in my life that, even now, twenty years later, I still remember with a sense of giddy hope and optimism though I know what happened.

status:  complete
series:  sequel to "Waiting Game" and "Captain on the Bridge" -- third in the Away Mission series
canon:  Star Trek XI
word count:  ~3,675
genre:  sws, some fluff
warnings:  dom/sub, gratuitous plot device?, language
summary:  Jim Kirk’s away missions always seem to end badly.  Actually, for Bones, that’s a matter of interpretation.
author’s notes:  While not specifically in response to one of the “sex pollen” requests at the st_xi_kink meme, this is definitely inspired by several of the requests there.  And this was originally going to be Kirk/Spock.  And Bones had his way with the author – and it was oh so good.

summary:  Something is not quite right with the Doctor.  It’s up to Rose and Jack to solve the mystery before it drives them all out of their minds.  Literally.  Welcome to Cielace.
author’s notes:  When I finished “Hunger,” I had the feeling the story wasn’t done, despite the fact it had eaten my brain.  When the first three people who read it – including one of my betas – said, “That’s it?” I knew it needed more.  I hope this helps, because the sequel ate my brain, too.
     Thank you so much to quill2006 and madam_minnie for their eyes on this.  Once again, I couldn’t do it without you, ladies.

[public post] Sunday, 15 March 2009 @ 23.30 |  Defriending Amnesty
Everyone has someone on their friends list they'd like to remove but just haven't. It might even be me. Here's your chance.

On 15 March 2009 is your chance to rearrange your friends list without remorse or recriminations, the only caveat is that you must post this in a public (screened or unscreened) post so those you unfriend may plead their case to be returned if they feel they've been removed in error. On this day, though, you may remove people and not feel guilty about it.

Have you drifted away from someone? Were you once thick as thieves in one fandom but they no longer will have anything to do with that fandom and you don't talk to them any longer but haven't felt right in removing them? On March 15, go right ahead. Has someone found religion and insists upon sharing but you're an avowed atheist? On March 15, feel free to part ways.


If you feel I've defriended you in error, please comment to this entry as comments are screened, not the entry below.
