I had cause to pull this off the shelf the other day in order to write a Tides of Time article. I'm sure Perfect Timing wasn't the first Dr Who charity fanfiction anthology but it was the first of a new wave that started during the "wilderness years" when the line between fan and professional Dr Who fiction was particularly blurred. Perfect Timing 2, obviously, was its follow up and charity fanfiction anthologies, as far as I can tell, have continued to be published on a regular basis ever since.

Title: Dawn of Destruction

Summary: Bespin is evacuated, and Rey has to face Kylo Ren once more.

Prompt: Abandon Ship!

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: Was about to get a continuation of my "Shara Lives" story -- and I will get to that, never fear -- but let's say a bit of a recent revelation of awful about The Last Jedi sort of got me typing in my main verse again. Anyway, here's the Bespin evacuation scene.

Artist's Notes: Was mostly thinking of doing things on the Ben and Poe side, as that's mostly where I do my work -- in the backstory. Mostly they're based off my story "The Broken Edge", a.k.a. my giant-as-heck backstory for Ben and company.

I'm nearly hysterical with pain.

I have a sinus infection that's triggered a migraine and neither icepack nor meds have done anything.

And Amazon says they delivered my meds to the leasing office on Friday but the leasing office does not have my package. Ian said they seemed more willing to search when he said it was medicine.

I'm going to try and distract myself with this soulmate verse plot bunny I have where you only know it's your soulmate when you can actually orgasm.

It's weird and odd and I think the HP verse is best to explore it.

Holding onto inspiration

I just saved all the pictures of my pins from my "inspiration" board since I figured - I want to be inspired, what if they're goone/I'm offline?

Well, I had 455 pins. And I ended up with 450 files. 3 of the pins were moved to a different board ("other diy") and I encountered one pin that apparently didn't exist. At least pinterest couldn't find it. That leaves one pin I missed saving. Damn. I'm not going to check which one I forgot. Especially considering the many duplicates I found. Pinterest tells me if I try to pin an already pinned pin, but either it's a newer feature (newer in relation to that board) or if two people make a pin from the same website, they're considered different pins and it therefore doesn't realise that.

I just take it to mean that the image is super inspiring :)

It's also fascinating to see how the board changed. The early images (aka the last ones I saved) where people, nature and steam punk with a few buildings/rooms, in the middle I also had some with lamps of some kind or another and most of the newer ones are buildings (a lot of old/abandoned ones with a few modern, architectually "strange" ones) and a bit of nature.

It made me realise that I need more people on that board. Unless I'm mistaken, I started it because I found pins on pinterest that threatened to give me ideas for stories. At the very least, that's what it's for now (still). Giving me ideas for building locations, worlds, sceneries and characters.

I've been really grumpy this weekend.

Sebastian peed in our closet also so that's four places he peed that's not a litter box in two days.

Since he's not my cat he's been banned from our room and I'm keeping the door shut.

Our cat is the only one allowed in.

And our AC is broken again...

So I've just been going around grumpy all weekend.

Should I revive an old fandom?

I didn't think it possible, but I think I might be reviving at least one of my CSI fandoms. Sporadically, I've been looking for crossovers with them (especially CSI/Criminal Minds) throughout the years that were never quite satisifed as the ones I had at one point started to read were still abandoned and there weren't many new ones.

It doesn't help that I quit all three CSI shows around the same time, back ca in 2005/2006. I quit a lot of shows in that time.

My hightime for crime dramas (and how it ended) )

Anyway, lately I've been craving some CSI: Miami. I've still got my DVDs, so one of these days I'll put it on. Naturally, I only thought of it today at 10:30pm. Not exactly a time to start watching a series. Okay, a movie would be an equally bad idea.

Instead of some good crime time, I've spent the weekend watching Youtube (the channels I follow) and Netflix (nature documentaries). I also did some cleaning, cooking and typing up. Oh - and I brought quite a bit of stuff from my balcony to the cellar.

A little writing update

As much as I loath all the time I need to type up my handwritten stories? I sometimes find little gems amongst my writings. Okay, I do get that by reading them as well, but typing up gets rid of the paper :)

Today, while typing up a PoA AU that leads to Hermione and Harry pointing out how far behind muggle studies is (in regards to fashion, science, etc), I have the last line "Dumbledore likes 80s make up"

It somehow makes me think about Dumbledore walking around looking like David Bowie or KISS.

A bit more about typing up, fic organisation and decluttering... )

Maybe I need to do a kind of masterlist (I already have one for my published stories @ [community profile] love_sacrificed) where I list just how many individual stories I have per fandom (and maybe include their main plot categories).

But that's for when I'm done typing up. At this rate, I'll probably need the rest of the year. Hopefully I'm not producing more new stuff to type up than I manage to type up...

Argh cats.

Especially Basshole. My roommates eldest demonspawn.

He peed on my dirty clothes, he peed on the bathroom rug, and probably (could have been Boo or Mercat) peed underneath the box.

I wonder if the alligators in the pond are hungry? (Joke: I'd never hatm the little bastard... And I normally like him. Might even love him but.... Urgh.... CATS

Fegredo's BPRD covers

Duncan Fegredo's covers for BPRD: Cometh The Hour were so fucking wonderful that I've been looking forward to seeing his covers for The Devil You Know just about as much as I was to reading the actual story.
And I was particularly looking forward to who would be on the fifth Devil You Know cover, because it really wasn't obvious by eliminating who had been on the first four. It turned out to be everyone! I'm so bloody delighted.

I have a headache so I ended up reading true crime Wikipedia entries. I normally read the solved ones but I ended up reading the unsolved ones and now I can't seem to sleep...

And not just because of the ice pack on my neck.

YESSSS!
