I have one goal tonight. Get my big bang in decent order. It's currently sitting at 18,871 words, but it's missing a sex scene (because I hate writing them) that should tip it over the limit, and then I have to edit the shit out of it.

It doesn't have to be perfect, but it needs to be not so terrible that my mixer wants to kill themselves when they get it.

I suspect it'll be covered with notes like, "CHANGE THIS, YOU FUCKING IDIOT, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?" but you know, they'll get the idea.

Wish me luck, flist! I'm at the finish line, finally!

  • Last night I was craving comfort food, so I made this casserole my grandma always used to make where she'd making stuffing and put it in a casserole dish, put unbreaded chicken tenders on top, then cover it with cream of chicken soup and bread crumbs, and it was delicious technology 100%! Also super easy, which I appreciate, since while making this I managed to forget to oil the casserole dish so it wouldn't stick, and also to preheat the oven. I have faith that one day I'll be less of a cooking disaster, but today is not that day.

  • I am fairly confident that my Big Bang is total badfic. Here's a question, actually. Is issue fic ever not badfic? And would attempted suicide qualify as issue fic? Because I think I'm fucked on two levels there.

  • I went to bed last night will all the windows in the house open, because my house stores heat like an oven and it was ridiculously stuffy in the house, and then woke up at 3:00am to pouring rain and it was FREEZING and had to walk through the house closing it up. Not on, weather.

  • Yogurt + fresh strawberries + granola = A++ food combination!

  • I like even numbers, and even though five isn't an even number, it feels like it should be.

    That meme I keep seeing everywhere where you post a sentence from all your WIPs:

    1. Brendon grinned and walked out, unable to keep himself from shimmying a little when the door to the business closed behind him.

    2. Spencer met with him two hours every day for the first two weeks of his six week stay, and one hour every day after that.

    3. Spencer’s drumsticks were in his back pocket, and he was holding up his cell phone trying to get reception.

    4. Ryan was all arms and legs, too skinny by half, and his face seemed to be set in a perpetual weary expression, as though he was constantly thinking about how the world was too exhausting to even deal with, and his voice was such a drab monotone that Brendon immediately wanted to do something to try and shake him up, make him lose his world weary façade. (Holy run-on sentence, Batman!)

    5. Ryan immediately got very animated, which entailed a lot of eyebrow movement on an otherwise expressionless face, and began telling Spencer about the musical he’d written. (This is actually a co-WIP with Elissa, but I think we've abandoned it.)

    6. Ryan looked disappointed for a moment, then Brendon suddenly yelled, “Oh, my God, if we don’t go soon I swear I’m going to go blow Frank, you guys.”

    7. Two years later, and Brendon thought maybe he was going to be okay.

    I really need to finish some of those.

    Things that are good about today:

  • President Obama (!!!) started the process of shutting down the Guantánamo Bay trials.

  • He's still President Obama. It's real!

  • I wrote 2,000 more words on my Big Bang.

  • It's only 11:00, so that's all I've got, but I'm hopeful about the rest of the day.

    Also, in case anyone missed, if you want to be on my Bandom Big Bang filter, here's the poll.

    So I scrapped my private detective Big Bang idea. I couldn't sleep last night and I was trying to figure out the plot, and I had absolutely nothing. But I had another idea that I really like, I'm just not sure I can pull it off. I have no illusions about my writing ability (and this is not when you're supposed to jump in and tell me what a great writer I am, because seriously, I'm fine with just being an okay writer) and this plot may need a better hand than mine. But I'm going to give it a go. It would be stupid if I didn't try, just because it makes me nervous.

    I realized I have no Brendon/Spencer icons. I really need to rectify that. Especially since I have two Brendon/Jon icons, and that's my very least favorite pairing.

    I had something else to talk about and it flitted right out of my head.

    Oh! Only FIVE days until Obama takes office! Only five more days of George W. Bush at the helm, fucking all our shit up. The end is in sight, guys. We can make it.

    I have 2,000 words of the most implausible, ridiculous fic ever for Big Bang. Seriously, it's just dumb, and makes no sense whatsoever. Spencer and Ryan are private detectives and they're hiring Brendon as their secretary. I ripped that off, I'll admit it. But it makes NO SENSE. Ryan and Spencer are PRIVATE DETECTIVES? How dumb is that? If this thing gets written it's going to be like a bad romance novel, no lie.

    My cat is all curled up on my dog right now, and it's the cutest thing I've ever seen. She is actually laying on his legs. I love my animals.

    I need something to do. I'm incredibly bored. This is an excellent time for prompts, I think.

    I'm limiting it to Panic, though, because I'm fairly sure I won't be able to get anything else written.

    Give me a prompt and a pairing, and I'll write you something. No guarantees on length or when you'll get it, but I'll do my best.

    I have two insect bites of some sort (I suspect spider) on my collar bone, and they're driving me crazy. One is MASSIVE, and the other is just huge.

    I also have writer's block, so I'm taking prompts. But like, I need an actual prompt. Not just "lampshade" or "thunder" or something. I need something like, "Frank is teaching Gerard how to fly a kite and they get tangled up in the string." Bandom only, please. (Sorry, I just have bandom things I'm committed to, and I need to get in that frame of mind.) Maybe this'll kick me in gear. I wrote those drabbles, but they didn't really help. Ugh.

    My cat just killed a mouse in my hallway and I had to clean it up. She was PLAYING with it. What is a mouse even doing in my house? And my prissy little stuck-up cat with no claws managed to KILL it. I feel so sorry for it. My other cat had it cornered up against a bookshelf this morning, and I tried to rescue it and take it outside, but it ran before I could get my hands on it. It was shaking and clearly terrified, and now it's dead. I feel awful.

    I've been working on this Jon/Ryan story for a while now, and everything was going fine, I was enjoying writing it and all that, and now it's come to a dead stop. I'm so annoyed. I hate it when that happens. I have 14,000 words and I kind of just want to go, "The end," even though none of the story lines are even close to being wrapped up.

    My download for DW is taking FOREVER. It's very frustrating.

    I may spam today. My apologies in advance.

    Oh! One more thing. Does anyone have the song "Echelon" by 30 Seconds to Mars? I used to have it, then lost it. I think it was when my hard drive fried, but either way, I'd love to have it back.
