Long time, no see.

I am, in fact, alive. And term has begun again! I am excited because the summer was kind of desolate and boring and I need structure in my life.

And I, uh, have a request to make: I need help in finishing this thing that I've owed [livejournal.com profile] nightrider101 since the beginning of this year, because dammit I don't know how to go on, and what's more, my spn muse has completely run dry. So to any of you who are still avid fans and can instill me with your enthusiasm, I would appreciate anything from a cheerleader to a beta reader. It's about wings and profound bonds and also some problematic rips in reality that happen after the apocalypse-that-wasn't. I have a little over 7k written out of probably 10k total, which is way more than I was planning on doing, but apparently I'm incapable of writing anything less than weirdly convoluted plotty things or something? I think I'm going to post the first half of it very soon, with the hopes that this will pressure me into finishing the rest of it in something resembling a timely manner. But seriously, I keep staring at it, willing words to appear, but they just don't. So...yeah. Help?

On the flip side, though, I have been sucked into loving the Avengers hard core. I don't really read comics all that often, but I am totally behind the films and it's making me take Wikipedia crash courses on the the canon material like woah. Seriously, this movie has already ruined me, and it hasn't even come out yet. As a result, I am utterly lost to Steve/Tony right now. It's a disease, almost as bad as Charles/Erik, except worse because whereas Charles and Erik make me want to write them into badass adventures, Steve and Tony make me want to just read utter sap about how they made up after Civil War and got married and fought crime together. Argh. Stop it you bastards I hate you. Also my personal theme song for them is now 'Teenage Dream' because Tumblr is a terrible influence on me and I am a terrible person and it makes me laugh uncontrollably. STEVE IS TOTALLY TONY'S TEENAGE DREAM, DON'T DENY. Oh god this journal must never become connected to me in real life or I will have to change names and move to a different country again.

LOL. I cannot wait until the Avengers movie comes out. SO EXCITED OMG.

That said, I'm all for being your cheerleader if you'd want me. RL and too many fanfic projects makes me not a very good beta, but I like to think that I'm fairly good with providing random and/or helpful discussion material when someone's stuck on a fic.

So if you want, just drop me a note. Good to see you, bb. ;)

Seriously, next summer is SO FAR AWAY, I CANNOT COPE.

Thank you so much! I will probably message at some point to maybe bounce some ideas off of you. I sort of know what I want to do, but not really, so it'd be great to kind of talk them through. Thank you :)

Sure, go ahead. I'm on my computer all the time pretty often, so I should be able to get back to you pretty soon. ;)

Ahh, I've been sucked into Steve/Tony too. Cannot wait for the film! I'm especially excited after watching Captain America today :D Ahhhhhh it's going to be fantastic.

I have two hands up to offer to be a cheerleader/beta/whatever you need, if you still need someone!

They are so adorable, oh my god. Captain America basically just made me want to hug Chris Evans forever. UGH WHY ISN'T IT SUMMER 2012 YET.

Thank you darling, that would be fantastic! I will message you at some point and maybe send you a draft. The beta-ing doesn't have to be that thorough, I mostly just need someone to be like "stop talking about writing this scene and actually write it!" and then also tell me when things are stupid and/or don't make sense. Thank you so much for offering! <3

Chris Evans should get all the hugs *_______*

Sure, whenever you're ready (my email's in my intro post)!

Constantine icon ftw. :))))

And good luck on the writing, boy do I know how that feels.

Always! Constantine is my spirit animal :D

Thank you, it has been a very frustrating few months. I'm usually so good at finishing things, but on this story I am a fail. Bah.

If you've been poking tumblr for Avengers and XMFC, have you stumbled on Gyzym (lj & tumblr) or postcardmystery (lj)/oh-you-better-run (tumblr) yet?

I will rabidly jump up and down recommending Gyzym's in-progress XMFC fic Carpe Brewski, and completed Avengers fic Ready, Aim, Fire, or just about everything by Postcard.

Oh yes, I am a big fan of Gyzym and Postcard, they are magnificent. Carpe Brewski has made me laugh a ridiculous amount, particularly due to the Texts From Last Night that arose from it, and Ready, Fire, Aim is like, one of my favorite Steve/Tony things ever. They are fanfic royalty, fo' sho' :D

:D:D They are rather spectacularly fantastic, aren't they?
(Also Gryzmolic, an artist I really should have mentioned in the previous comment for Avengers, and Gingerhaze for XMFC and Broship of the Ring)

How fond are you of texts from last night/humorous memo type-things, may I ask?

I am following all of those people! They are amazing. I think I spend more time on Tumblr than I do anywhere else on the internet. I'm suddenly getting all of my random obsessions with historical stuff and fashion stuff AND fandom stuff all in one place, and so it's basically taken over my life.

I am a big fan of tfln and memo things. Are you thinking of Texts From Xavier Academy and Memos from Fury? :DDDD

:D Do you find yourself doing the Wiki thing, of looking at one entry then following something from it to another, then another, then it's suddenly an hour later and you're looking at something entirely unrelated to the first post?

Yes! Also conversationsinmarvel, textsfromlastissue and textsfromavengershq, plus captaindraws, which is an RP artblog done as Steve Rogers, askcaptaina which is an ask Captain America doodle/art blog, and dontaskironman, the Tony Stark equivalent.

[I may be OD'ing on blog recs here, stop me if I am?]

Oh yes, definitely, and then it only gets worse if I come across stories that are written by people who really know the canon and include lots of smaller characters who I'm not familiar with, and therefore have to go and read up on :P

Haha, well I think we read almost exactly the same blogs, because I'm definitely familiar with those!

And because my brain is apparently firing on maybe 1/16th of a cylinder tonight, Weight of Water (http://archiveofourown.org/works/260751) by pprfaith, an amazingly written Charles/Raven/Erik AU that plays really well with Charles' telepathy.

Avengers has ruined me, too, don't worry. I didn't even read the comics much before I started flipping out over the upcoming movie, but then I bought the Ultimates and Avengers Prime (which is basically Steve, Tony, and Thor battling monsters and becoming boyfriends best friends again) and now I'm sucked into the Marvel U and all of the fic and goodness that contains.


And even though I'm pretty busy with real life at the moment, I can totally toss ideas back and forth with you for that Supernatural fic, if you want! I know it stinks just staring at an empty screen, so I'm happy to help. :)

Avengers is like the ultimate life ruiner, because with one movie, you're like, 'Superhero X is a life ruiner!' and then another one comes out, and you're like, 'Oh god, Superhero Y is an even BIGGER life ruiner!' and then they all start coming together, and then Coulson just gets more and more awesome with every appearance, and then I start flailing like a flaily thing on crack. Marvel knows how to play me like a violin.

Thank you so much for the offer, I might take you up on that. I think once I figure out how to actually solve the major plot points it won't be too hard, so if I need to talk it out, I'll def drop you a line :)

Oh yeah, and I definitely need to pick up a copy of Avengers Prime. I just saw the panels from it where Tony is all, 'YOU WOULD DARE STRIKE A WIZARD??' and I just about died. The whole thing looks amazing.

IT IS. And not only is Tony hysterical and the art very pretty, but there's also the fantastic scene when knight-Steve comes to naked-Tony's rescue and they proceed to banter and be precious. I love them. ♥
