Six-word stories are awesome and addicting - but I could only do three of them for now. I can't even write six-word stories? That's pretty much my conclusion! And that HP commentfic isn't like even 100 words. I dunno.

The Vampire Diaries, Jenna, decision

The Vampire Diaries, Caroline/Tyler, shall we dance?

Stargate: Atlantis, any male scientist/any male soldier, danger

Harry Potter, Sirius/Remus, coming home

♥ Whooooo!! Finished my [livejournal.com profile] pink_stargate entry! The Quest for True Luv (John/Rodney intentional badfic with intentional misspellings and with the caveat that it shouldn't be taken seriously because it was hurriedly written in one day and meant to be bad.)

Now if I could only finish at least one prompt I signed up for smallfandomfest, I'd totally love myself. I desperately wanted to finish all three prompts I picked to write for, but seeing as this round ends in eight days, I'm not holding out much hope. GOSH WHY SO FAIL SELF Ah well, at least I started it - that's half the battle.

♂ So Tumblr has been awesome for finding writing advice that rocks (among other awesome stuff that rocks)! A few links:
Nuts and Bolts: Thought Verbs by Chuck Palahniuk
Kurt Vonnegut's Rules for Writing Reprinted (very general but some pretty important points)
Chuck Palahniuk's 13 Writing Tips (again, more general advice but worth a read)
Writing every day...

Actually, I'd recommend just going through http://writingadvice.tumblr.com and their tags and trying to read everything posted there.

next up: totally finishing up memes awesome people gave me and some thoughts on shows I caught up with this past week and maybe some reviews of awesome comics/books read/to be read. This is what happens when I keep opening up this blog window to write in and keep writing in it for weeks and never hit the post button.

♦ a really cool Smallville census wherein there are cool pie charts and numbers concerning all the characters that came and went through Smallville in its decade. really awesome and I'd recommend a look if you're into numbers and stats and such. :D

♣ Y'know how you stumble onto something in life - like a certain hobby, or person, or expectation - and then you find out it's really not how you thought it was? I don't mean to be deliberately vague but this is hard for me to put into words, but I thought, what with this being the modern age and everything, that this sort of thing shouldn't happen. And that is DC ignoring its female readers. There's a Tumblr I've come to recently follow that says it much better than I could ever put into words, but to actually know that a major publisher of comics isn't really trying to target you as their readers? (by which I mean females like me) is just really shocking, to say the least. I think between Marvel and DC vying for my money, I'll gladly let Marvel win (even if they end up being like DC and totally ignoring their female readers as well). DC Comics to female readers: we’re just not that into you

[livejournal.com profile] ribbon_purple is hosting a low-pressure Stargate (Atlantis, SG-1, or SGU) badfic challenge. As far as I know, you can write any badfic your mind can come up with and stories/graphics will be due July 21. So, if you're fan of writing intentional badfics and Stargate, take a look, yeah?

▲ Still trying to get into a good writing groove, which seems to have...vanished mysteriously for me someplace, which is particularly vexing because I have fic deadlines here, y'know, muse. I think Tumblr is all to blame because that site seriously sucks all the time into some space vacuum where twelve hours go by and you've done nothing but liked/reblogged a thousand pictures. Which is not to say that site isn't awesome or anything and I love it - as I think it's a particularly good way for a budding comics fan to really get involved in the fandom and expand on it - but dude, such a time waster. Alas, that could be said for the whole invention of the Internet - it can make you smarter and expand your horizons if you've lived a sheltered life, but on the con side, makes you waste a whole day doing nothing useful.

This week AA had two spoilers for Greek:

Question: Got any scoop on the March 7 series finale of Greek?! —@TurboMeg via Twitter
Ausiello: Stock up on Puffs Plus Lotion (with the scent of Vicks) ’cause you’re going to be bawling till your tear ducts dry out and your nose falls off. I screened the episode over the weekend and I have to give props to the creative team for ending on an emotionally satisfying high note. Highlights: There’s one (or is it two?) long overdue hookup, a pitch perfect bookend-y scene between sibs Rusty and Casey, and an answer to one of the show’s biggest mysteries: What the hell is Cappie’s real name? (If you guessed ******* **** **** *****, congrats, you were right!)

Question: Will Frannie appear on Greek before the show ends? —Amy
Ausiello: Yes, the witch (played once again by Tiffany Dupont) touches down in the penultimate episode on Feb. 28 and immediately extends an olive branch to her still-steaming-mad ZBZ sisters. And this particular olive branch has a name: Justin Bieber. (BTW, Cappie’s reaction to seeing Frannie again is priceless.)

Kinda ambivalent about Frannie.

And a TVD scoop:

Question: Got any scoop on The Vampire Diaries? —Ellie
Ausiello:
Thursday’s episode is not to be missed. It boasts two deaths, one super-romantic Matt/Caroline scene, and — in the hour’s final minutes — a doozy of a twist.

yay! Matt/Caroline!! I missed the last two recentish eps but hope I can get caught up before tomorrow.

Also, finally finished and posted a SGA vid for [livejournal.com profile] stargateland's episode vid challenge where you could only use clips from one episode to make the video from. This would be my third one? I think. The second SGA vid we shan't talk about because it was horrible and it'd be best to just forget it exists.

the embed thingy never works for some reason - please go here.

(If it doesn't work, please tell me because the first time I tried to view it, it didn't work for me - well the audio worked fine but there weren't any visuals to go with the audio. It is actually a miracle this got posted online AT ALL. So yeah. >: I sometimes hate technology so much.)

My God - Rodney McKay just wouldn't shut up in my head and then he drove me to this! (It's really quite annoying.) Written in about three hours - unbeta'd and most likely a mess, so comments/critique will be most welcome.

dahlia_moon: (SGA team awesome)
I have been working on this for weeeeekkkkssss and I still ended up being late! (It's because I don't know the meaning of early and most likely never will). Anyways, HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY, [livejournal.com profile] ribbon_purple !!! ♥♥♥

Notes: This had wanted to be porn except then some narration and introspection got in the way but hopefully it’s enjoyable? (And, also, I can’t write porn to save my life so, um, maybe this is a good thing?) This is where John is a vampire and Rodney isn’t. [livejournal.com profile] ribbon_purple is also writing a McShep parody of Twilight in which John plays Edward, and Rodney’s Bella, so think of this as a homage to her and her crackiness…except this is a lot less funny and more rambly and wangsty. (Wangsty? Like waff & angst combined, I suppose.) Link to The Pasty Loner and the Sparkly, Super Hot, Really Old Guy: Love at First Sniff Chapter One by her.

so that i might be where you are

dahlia_moon: (john + rodney bunny rabbits)
You may all blame [livejournal.com profile] ribbon_purple - or the bunnies, bunnies can never ever be resisted – because she created these Easter bunny icons. One icon in particular (that I'm using right now <----) featured two bunnies that were supposed to be John and Rodney, which is also where the first five lines of the dialogue come from (and are credited to her). (I dunno what it says about me that my first thought was ‘John and Rodney would be sooo cute if they were bunnies.’ *squeeeee*) Sadly, there aren’t any bunnies here, but I loved the dialogue and it obviously sparked something after my dry-spell with this fandom.

Notes: (I can’t write anything gen! I did try with the Woolsey, Ronon, and Carson pieces though.) #1, #4, & #5 are gen, while #2 is Lorne/Parrish, and #3 is Elizabeth/Radek. #5 also references season five, episode two "The Seed", while the others are pretty general in regards to time line/spoilers. Written for the prompt "the five worst-kept secrets on Atlantis" for [livejournal.com profile] sg1_five_things.
