New BBB. Still steampunk. Now with 90% more Lyn-Z the Airship Captain and 100% more Gerard/Bob. Anyone interested should page me

ps, thanks for including me, dudebro :)

I wish BBB wasn't being such a bitch :\

on the + side, I've gotten snippets of a couple different origfics started for a few different universes, some I didn't expect. I'm not trying to finish anything, just writing whatever I come up with instead of obsessing over it forever until I don't feel like writing it anymore. I might share some, might not. I'm trying to hone my craft~, y'know. People tell me they like my writing, but I always feel like it's a mess or simplistic or something. I feel like it should be better, but I don't know what I can do to fix it. Writing more just makes me write more, it doesn't change how I write. Oh well, we'll see

the big - is that I found a PAID editorial internship at a publishing company in my area AND I just so happened to have an in with one of the VPs of the company (his daughter was in my sister's girl scout troupe, he and my dad are casual buddies) so I applied and then sent him my resume with a ":) :) halp :)" and he said I looked v. qualified and like I'd fit in well, and that he'd pass me on to the right people...and then e-mailed me again to let me know that he found out they weren't going to be hiring an intern because of the recession. of course, when something is perfect for me, it falls through. (the zoo doesn't want me either, btw) :(

Thanks to the folks who helped me out with my survey...your fiendishly open-minded responses made it very difficult for me to do connect my research to theory ;___; But I'll be presenting tomorrow and then woohoo, uh. I'll be not doing that project any more? \o/?

I've decided to open my twitter up for public consumption (I KNOW, you've all been CHOMPING AT THE BIT), so...have at it. I won't be shopping them to eljay because, srsly, no one fucking cares, but if anyone wants to have twitbattles or whatever the cool kids nowadays are doing with me, go for it!

Working on BBB, slowly slowly slowly. Getting the itch to work on my hetcest+Brian pregnancyfic, sigh sigh sigh.

How insane would it be for me to attempt a second BBB in which Gerard is the heir to a noble family, and has social struggle shenanigans with his sex slave, Frank, who is rebellious and bratty, and with Bob, who is a field slave that Gerard decided to claim for his own? Dynamics! Politics! Intrigue! SEX SLAVES!!! (Keeping in mind that I only have ~3k of my steampunk BBB done :\) It would be insane, right? Totally mad and impossible?

Back in B-town, eating a baked tater (Samwise would be so proud of me!) and considering working on my bio 9___9 I saw Coraline on Thursday and my thoughts on it are thus: SEE IT The film is perfectly gorgeous, the soundtrack is amazing, and it's just the sweetest thing while still being entirely creepy. I had moments of "awwwww" and moments of "AGHHHH" and I was a little worried about the addition of a new character but he's darling. Definitely definitely definitely see it, if just for the OMG factor of the fact that EVERYTHING IS MADE BY HAND. EVERY SINGLE TINY THING. The theater in town doesn't have 3D, so I had to see the 2D version :( but everything I've heard says the 3D is really well done...there were only like, two or three moments when I went "Oh, this is supposed to be 3D" so it must be really subtle.

PS, something with my webmail add-on is fuxx0red, it won't notify me of new mail in my hotmail account, any suggestions?

First of my [ profile] sosodirty fics has been posted~

The Whole of Nature
Pete/Patrick, ~2k, Adult
Prompt: being fed

The whole of nature, as has been said, is a conjugation of the verb to eat, in the active and in the passive. ~William Ralph Inge

In other news, it's raining like all hell and I'm a grump about it :( I long to be curled up inside, peering out the window and snuggling in with a blanket...not going to class :\ But I've just got one more, and it's close, and it's only an, it's presentation day and I presented last time \o/

so...finish my muffin (nomnomnom), maybe do some BBB, maybe some...random serialmurder stuff >_> *innocent*

Intro to Gender Studies is pretty much definitely going to be my top class of the semester. I love it, and I'm always really excited to go which happens to me like...never. We just get to talk about all the kind of stuff I want to talk about but don't really have anyone to talk about them with, and read really interesting pieces and RRGH LOVE ♥ ♥

Soooo BBBwise (damn, I need to make up a tag for this)...I was originally going to have Ray be kind of a presence in the house to kind of...drop in and explain shit to Frank that the audience needs to know about how Gerard's life is XD but I've since fallen in love with Ray as Lyn-Z's greased-up engineer/first mate (she's an airship captain~) and his starcrossed/long-distance love affair with Bob the surly mechanic cook (he's the only one willing to brave the kitchen machines Gerard loves to "improve") SO he doesn't really fit anymore. I was thinking about who I could replace him with and went OOH Matt Cortez! Except...the only thing I actually know about Cortez is that he likes porn. Any recommendations on Cortez characterizing/other people who are MCR-related and would fill the role well? (FYI, in case you hadn't heard, Gerard is the Eccentric Gentleman Inventor, Mikey is His Brother, Frank is his New Assistant, and Brian is the Butler]
