(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. (Primeval: Stephen&Connor: like brothers)
+ still sick! but I'm pretty sure everyone is. :P

+ PRIMEVAL, OMG. This season is killer.

+ White Collar has returned! JOY, etc. And I just remain so pleased that though Neal and Peter are the main characters, they really utilize everyone they've got. Jones and Diana and Sara and Elizabeth aren't just tossed out. Which :D (P.S. LOLZ NEAL TRYING TO FIGHT.)

+ Nikita soon? Yes? I thought it was tomorrow, but I'm not seeing any place saying that. Maybe next week.

+ So they're adapting Being Human to America/Canada. I've watched about half the first season of the UK version and loved it (and then got busy and couldn't finish it).some of it spoilery )

+ The Cape is out - very classic superhero, etc. I'm watching for Summer Glau, but the story is interesting enough that I'm not pulling out anyways. At least not yet.

+ I have had my first and second day of classes, and seen all four. I think I'm going to enjoy them (well, not Statistics much, but I won't hate it). I already know one of my teachers is awesome, and the other three all seem very engaging and fun, and the subjects are ones I really like. So yay!

and lastly, this meme is going around again, and I can never resist it.

Give me the title of a story I've never written, and feedback telling me what you liked best about it, and I will tell you any or all of: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made me want to write it, the biggest problem I had while writing it, why it almost never got posted, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that I wish I'd been able to salvage, and possibly a short excerpt as well.

 am sick and exhausted. Feverish with a sore throat and achy joints all over. Yay. 

Flist, may I request cheering up? I tried using yesterday's White Collar, but that didn't work out so well. (TRAUMA.)

I had stuff I was going to talk about, but I'm having trouble remembering what.

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Narnia: Susan: fire at will)
 So this Tuesday starts my senior year of high school. The fall is going to be interesting - I'm only taking three dual-enrolled classes (Astronomy, American History to 1876, and Pre-History to Medieval Humanities), but I have to study for the SAT, the ACT, and the World History, Literature, and Mathematics Level I SAT Subject Tests. Also get applications for colleges together, and figure out where I want to go. I'm a big fan of Yale and Brown, and my chances are a lot better now that [redacted awesome news not allowed to tell until Wednesday], but I still really need to have third and fourth and fifth choices (I don't particularly want to apply to more than five schools, but I will if necessary). Hopefully I'll be visiting colleges some weekend this fall, which should help me figure out. Part of the problem in finding the schools I want to apply to is that - well, I have no idea what I'm going to major in. If I do Social Work, I would go to grad school for it, so my majors in college are wide open. Aaaaah.

Also, I really, really like teaching people. It's in my genes, guys! All girls in my family are doomed to teach. :P This Friday at co-op, I went in so that they wouldn't have to come back and pick me up before going somewhere else, and one of the Chemistry students had forgotten to do his homework, so I sat down and helped him with it. It was loads and loads of fun, and I don't even really like Chemistry. I just... enjoyed teaching it to someone. I didn't even mind that it was taking over an hour of my limited computer time that day. 

Okay - in the next few months, you can expect my NFE, one White Collar vid, and one as yet unknown fanfic and vid (from help_pakistan). And then I'll probably be pretty quiet on the creation front for a while, though I might do some casual vidding for relaxing purposes.

(AAARGH can I be 18 now stop it LJ with the adult notifications it is less than two months!)

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Narnia: Susan: fire at will)
 Hey guys! My NFE fic should be done tomorrow (Saturday at the latest). Obviously I can't give anything away, but could I get some offers for beta-ing? I'd like to have two different names to submit so if I can't do one of them I don't have to run around searching for a second one, since I'm going to be just scraping deadline as is. (How do I always end up doing this? Don't answer that. Rhetorical.)

In other news, DIANAAAA. NEAAAAL. JONES & PETER & EL and date night! White Collar frequently just makes me SO HAPPY. *flails*

I want to vid ALL THE THIIIINGS. White Collar's camera work is absolutely GORGEOUS. I've been getting episodes all day yesterday and today, and soon I will be ready to vid it up! Although it'll have to go on hold once help_pakistan bidding finishes. (It ends Saturday night, guys! You are missing out if you have not checked out what is being offered! It's pretty epic. :D)

ALSO rock climbing is epic and makes me so HAPPYYYYYYY.

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (GK: Walt: no idea what we're doing)
Have hit a downslump in emotions, which. Well, was guaranteed to show up eventually, because it's been more or less nonstop around here since Mary and Aidan got here. Which is loads of fun! but I reallyyyy can't handle that much socializing and activity. So yesterday kind of sucked, in that after socializing through the morning I got home and just flipped out and spent a lot of time crying in my room and watching TV shows in an attempt to calm down. I quit White Collar halfway through because Neal said "There's no way it can go wrong!" and I really wasn't up to worrying about characters at all. I rewatched Sherlock, the Moffat one. It was a fun watch, just... fun, you know? I like that. 

Mary and I are worried about Esther and have been for a while, because seriously, if the way her potential in-laws treat her is bad, and I'm not all that keen on her boyfriend either. (Or their church! which, you know, they said she had to start attending before she could officially date Matt.) They've isolated her from most of her friends - Matt doesn't want to do anything with our family, or friends, and he gives her the silent treatment or just sulks when she does something without him. It's just... there are some really disturbing signs. 

I'm not really doing all that well today, either, really. Just. ugh. 

Okay, heading out. Mom's got the laptop again, she's been using it to do school things. But I'll get to snatch Esther's later, so that's good. 

akh;sldghs;dk so TIRED. Do you have something that would cheer me up? I would welcome it!

So Aidan's gone as of Friday afternoon (Mary's staying for three weeks, yay!). We went to the beach, to the springs, played Ultimate Frisbee, had a party, and played possibly illegal amounts of board and card games. I socialized for what ended up being almost five days. Still utterly exhausted and anti-social. I slept badly Friday night, woke up three times or so.

Yesterday night I didn't get enough sleep either, for other reasons. Mostly involving The Roach Saga. (I HATE roaches, guys. SO MUCH.) About five in the morning today a roach took it into it's head to be as obnoxious to Mary as possible, including running across her face. *shudder* Then it got onto my bed, and things spiraled out of control from there until Mary was sleeping on the couch in the living room and Katherine and I had the lights on and were watching Primeval (the last four episodes of Season 3) and White Collar's first episode on my bed, while encouraging our dog to kill any roaches she found in our room. So yeah. I got... six hours of sleep last night? I've been alternating between hyper and looking drugged all day. Anyway, that all led to the Great Roach Hunt, wherein Kat and Mary and I spent large portions of today clearing out my room. Really thoroughly.

Come on down to metatardis!
Where we are all definitely madmen in boxes.

It's going to be pretty fabulous, guys. There have already been some great meta-pieces, and I know there'll be more. You should drop by! 

Vid recs! I have four.

Your Ghost by [ profile] charmax is a devastating and beautiful Winchester family epic. The lyrics are utterly perfect, the song is beautiful with the right melancholy to it, and the story told is wonderful. Three generations of Campbells/Winchesters, with all their utter tragedy!

Never Gonna Leave Me by [ profile] lee_fragilidad is a Syfy Alice vid, Alice/Hatter, and it's just the right mix of upbeat running/fighting and wishful glances. The cutting is sharp and the whole thing is really well-constructed.

Bad Romance by [personal profile] such_heights may have me convinced that I need to finish watching S2 of Merlin. (I'm.. .not sure why I haven't, actually.) But I definitely have to watch the Morgause episodes, and this vid is why. Gwen/Morgana/Morgause love triangle! WANT.

Lullaby For A Stormy Night by [personal profile] such_heights is the tiny!Amy and Eleven vid we all knew we wanted. So adorable, omg. ♥

On TV-watching fronts! White Collar 2x01 was quite lovely. Neal and Peter were in fine bickering form, Mozzie played a great role. I only wish there had been more (MUCH MORE) of El and Diana, and that that one Scare hadn't happened at the end.spoilerrrrrs )

Primeval is pretty wonderful - I wish it was more racially diverse, but they are fairly decent on delivering Awesome Ladies Being Awesome and there is no shortage of handsome men and I am shallow. spoilers through 3x03 )

Femgenficathon it is! this needs to be DONE. I need to move on! wait what why am I writing Claudia Brown/Jenny Lewis fic all of a sudden. *eyes* but I wanted to write Rosalie fic? except... I guess that's not happening. 

be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (White Collar: OT3: bound by trust)
Watched Criminal Minds 5x13, Risky Business )

I also watched most of Supernatural 5x11, "Sam, Interrupted." I dunno, it was okay. I wasn't in a very effective SPN-watching mood. I need to be feeling fine and happy, and I'm feeling more reclusive and worried. I think I'm going to have to rewatch it sometime - parts of it were hilarious, and parts of it were really, really interesting, and I want to watch them and be able to be interested and have thinky thoughts. Which I can't do right now.

And lastly! I used the last few remaining days of holiday (no homework until yesterday) to watch all eight episodes of White Collar, which has also been recommended to me. And it is indeed glorious, because Neal Caffrey is a shiney shiney thing of beauty, and the OT3 is quite an OT3 (El, I ADORE you!), and the latest episode was fantastic and the one before that was fabulous too (OUT OF A JUDGE'S WINDOW). so this goes on my list of shows to watch. (White Collar. Criminal Minds. Supernatural. huhhh. this is beginning to seem like A Type. and I don't even like most cop shows! apparently just very specific cop shows. I can't get enough interest in Numb3rs to watch it consistently, or, uh, any other cop show I've been told to watch except for The Unusuals.)

oh yeah! I watched two episodes of Bones at one point over the holiday. I... I don't know, you guys. I want to like it, I really do. And Temperance is really awesome some of the time, and Booth is awesome too (Boreanaz! that man can act), but something is missing, and I had lots and lots of problems with how unprofessional Temperance is, and how flip-floppy Booth's characterization was in the Pilot. I don't know. I have been told it just keeps getting better, but unfortunately we're now at a point where soon I won't have time to keep watching. So! if I'm to keep watching Bones, I'm going to need some really good Season 1 episodes to check out. Bones fans! what are the best/most necessary Season 1 episodes?
