 *facepalm* Am fairly certain my body doesn't even know the definition of good timing. But I am feeling pretty much all better today, which is good! Just the remnants of a sore throat. :D thanks for the good wishes, guys. 

okay! one not-fun-at-all thing (and possibly even triggering for sexual violence victims, due to his phrasing) - TWoP's Jacob says some really nasty things about Amy Pond (and looking at his recent recaplet of Vincent and the Doctor, he also uses the phrase "bipolar bullshit", which. Okay, I don't have the time tonight to discuss this, because I will melt down.)

In happier things!

Harborverse - I haven't talked about it in a while, but I've been poking at Part 2 for a bit, working out plot, and yesterday/today I figured out that I've been focused on the wrong area - Cedric isn't the focus of the story. It's really all about Holland, and I'm so pleased about that. I couldn't make her central before because I couldn't figure out what she was doing, but now she has a plot arc and a character arc, with joining the Provosts and various other Things, and I'm really excited to write her, and her with Cedric, and her with Awesome People of the Provost and Awesome Mafia Leaders and her with Magic Beings. And basically just excited to be writing original regularly again, omg. Donaghues, I have miiiiissed you. (Things I need to do - rewrite Part 1. Perhaps I will get the newest rough draft done for NaNo this year? I want to set a higher goal for myself, and it's really a completely different story than the original Part 1. Also rough drafted, which is crazy for me.) Yay writing! *flails hands* SO HAPPY.

So I watched an episode and a half of House with my dad tonight (yeah, I know, he watches House - it always surprises me, but I'm pretty sure it's more about the health things than anything). It was pretty fun! I don't think I'd watch it on a regular basis, but it was really nice to have something to do with my dad that we were both interested and active in - I think he liked that he got to explain most of the relationships and characters, as I only know the basics and character names, and that I was watching something with him. So yay!

I've friended several new people recently - for those of you who are relatively new, I'm Betsy (or Beth, or Elisabeth, or Be), I love writing and fandom and music, and in RL I exhibit many of the symptoms of bipolar disorder, which causes me problems. I dunno! It's pretty easy to figure me out, really. I love to talk to people, and chatter about fannish things. 

I HAVE SUCH AN AWESOME FLIST. <333333 You guys are just SO FUN and intelligent and smart and talented - it's really incredible. I love you guys so much, I really do. I've had some rough times lately, as you know, and your warmth and kindness have been indescribably helpful, as have you simply being your wonderful selves on my flist.

The most useful bit of TWoP advice I can give is: Never read anything by Jacob.

Oh, um, wow, that dude's got problems. I don't know who he is, but how the hell can he justify saying that kind of shit? :/

Huh. I've never had a story where I realized that the character I was writing about wasn't the center. The closest I've come is taking a story about one character and dividing it between two so that their story lines intertwined. But I'm glad you figured out how to get Holland in the spot light! :D

Out of curiosity, how good is dreamwidth? Is it any better than Livejournal?

it is sort of really crazy, in a completely BULLSHIT sort of way.

:D I've wanted her to be the main part of the story, but I hadn't been able to figure out what she was DOING besides hanging around in New Orleans. so yay! I love Holland.

Dreamwidth! I like it - it's kind of weird having two reading lists, but I do like several of DW's features more than LJ's, and I like their accessibility policy loads more than LJ's, and some of the things they're working on pretty much sound AWESOME. I'm not going to fully abandon LJ for it anytime soon, because LJ has loads of stuff and people I love as well, but I do like having a DW as well. Plus I've gotten new friends over there, which is always fun. :D

THEY DO THAT A LOT. I GLARE FEROCIOUSLY FROM MY SIDE OF THE SCREEN AND SAY MEAN THINGS IN MY HEAD AND THEN ACT ALL MATURE AT THEM. It doesn't work!

I am pretty quiet lately, but hello! I am still here and not dead! D:


Also uh. I... wrote you fic. I haven't posted it yet. Should I? (You requested it of your flist a really long time ago, and... well it's ready to post, but I don't know if you still want to read it.)

...unless somebody else requested it? OH MY GOD WHO REQUESTED THIS FIC *is losing mind*

It was a Depeche Mode prompt. That wasn't you, was it? WTF BRAIN.



Okay, yup, I'm crazy. It was totally somebody else's request and I wrote it down wrong. CARRY ON, NOTHING TO SEE HERE. (I'M SORRY.)
