(do you know how hard this was to narrow down? I wanted to put EVERYONE on there. I switched names in and out for probably half an hour before settling on this. SO MANY LADIES.)

and responses!

11 responses. ) 

and that one meme with your WIP titles. I don't really have a WIP folder, just a writing one, but let's see what I've got in there. 

I have got to finish some of this stuff. )

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (GK: Walt: no idea what we're doing)
 *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.

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Mulan: Mulan: garden walk)
Things Betsy finds fun: making up pantheons. Mostly because it involves researching pantheons, which I find so freaking fascinating. It's amazing! It is like candy to my brain, or something. It's awesome!

Fun facts of today's research:

Alala, female personification of the Greek war cry! Ironically enough, her name means "dumb, mute, speechless." I find this amusing.

Ares was the personification of more of less impulsive violence and slaughter, Athena the goddess of strategic fighting (also wisdom, probably the reason for the strategic fighting). Mars, the Roman (ETA: things Betsy should never do in a hurry - write about gods.) god of war, on the other hand, was the god of manly valor more. Minerva, the Roman equivalent of Athena, tended towards the crafts side of things much more than the war side.

Want to guess how this train of research got started?

Researching the Hippocratic Oath, so I could rewrite it more or less appropriately for Cedric, because he is a doctor. Then I delved into who he would swear by, got out my old research for the gods of a different world (hastily built during Nano for about twelve days and then set aside, because I needed something fun to write that year and that world was much too realistic). Currently he's swearing by the Gods Without Names (alternatively, the Gods Without Faces, which is technically inaccurate), and the small gods, which is the general name for all the lesser gods of all the religions, who have kind of gotten jumbled together at this point. The Gods Without Names were always my favorites - they were going to be the Winter gods, for a region of people who had invaded and conquered around two hundred years before. There's five of them, and each one has multiple titles (and these are just the most-used ones). Each one is very much up to personal interpretation.

The Goddess of Yesterday (the Grey Lady, the Dreamweaver, the Dawndreamer)
The God of Tomorrow (the Grey Lord, the Morrowweaver)
The God of War (the Red God, the Nightbringer, the Blood God)
The Mother (the White Lady, the Sun Goddess)
The Maiden (the Receiver, the Faceless)

Uh. Going to finish rewriting the Hippocratic Oath and going to bed now. *facepalm*

oh, cedric

Okay, I'm pretty sure this is going to be a post on the scale of epic.

thanks and cracked teeth )
I've caught up with my f-list! I went back to around Thursday and hopefully caught everyone from then on. Sorry if I missed anyone!

Things I want to recommend to people.

A) [livejournal.com profile] zempasuchil drew Mary Blake/Renesmee. It is adorable.
B) Anything on [livejournal.com profile] houseofpevensie . I'm a bit erratic on commenting on them, but the writing is superb and I adore the characters.
C) [personal profile] animus_wyrmis posted her lovely Leah/Angela fic with no name. So pretty!

TV shows I watched while I was in a horrible mood - Chuck (about six episodes of the first season), Pushing Daisies (part of the first episode before I got kicked off the computer), Supernatural (a few of my favorite episodes), Project Runway (I have to admit, I generally skip to the reunion episode after my favorites get kicked off).

As proof that I really need to slow down on the fic writing and just concentrate on a few, I'm going to go ahead and do the 'give a line from each of your WIP's' meme. Um. For some of them it's more like post a paragraph.

harborverse, nostalgia!origfic, what images return (next renesmee), untitled susan!fic, untitlted narniaexchange, untitled erasureathon )

I must turn in one Latin assignment and two Government assignments, and then I shall return to play with fic! Renesmee metafic is being difficult. a) I completely forgot Seth b) I introduced the Cullens. I'm thinking that needs to be a later story, that this one should be only about Mary and Leah. I dunno.
