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.
On the flip side, I just need to turn everyone's attention for one moment to Texts from Xavier Academy. 

I think I'm actually crying from laughing so hard.

Sample: 


...anyway. I'ma go work on my thesis now.

HOLY SHIT.

Someone made a trailer for Dies Irae. Holy shit. 

WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME ABOUT THIS. WHAT. I CAN'T EVEN. 

I'm utterly speechless. This thing is beautiful. Thank you, afaviva, you have made my entire week. It is just fantastic and epic and amazing and I love it to pieces.

You can watch the video here. Go and leave some love, because I don't have a YouTube account to do it. It's ridiculously perfect and I am so, so flattered that it exists. Sometimes, the internet yields wondrous things, and this is definitely one of those times.
 Huzzah! )



Thank you all so much for reading and enjoying over the past year. It has been, and will continue to be an absolute pleasure sharing my scribblings with you all!

My flight across the Atlantic back to merry old England was made bearable by

a) getting a seat at the front of a section so I had leg room, and

b) INCEPTION ON DEMAND. HELLS TO THE YES.

And now I have lots more ideas on the characters and stuff for my big bang, so I am most pleased. Oh, and current word count is, like, 17,000 or something. As my long suffering beta, the very wonderful and tolerant [livejournal.com profile] karakalyn will tell you, my brain exploded on me the other day and now there are many new things going on that I really hope I can beat into coherence. I will make the cool things happen. I'm determined!

Oh man, I'm so jet-lagged right now. I think my eyes are yelling at me. But here's a master list of what came out of my little self-congratulatory prompt party. I think it went pretty well:


A Dies Irae mini-sequel (Supernatural, Dean/Castiel, Sam/Gabriel)

Arthur used to be a sysadmin of justice! (Inception, Arthur/Cobb)

Let Justice Roll Down Like Water (Supernatural, Dean/Castiel)

Yusuf deserves birthday cake! (Inception, gen) EDIT: Now with ridiculous Arthur/Cobb sequel if you scroll down the massive conversation between myself and [livejournal.com profile] coldthermistor !

Profound bondedness (Supernatural, Dean/Castiel)

A sequel to "Hollowed and Whole" (Supernatural, Dean/Michael)



Okay passing out now bye!

Win!

Awarded Merit on my dissertation! I AM THE MASTER OF LITERATURE.

...or, you know, parts of it.

And 'a' master, not 'the' master.

MY POINT STANDS.


In celebration, I will commit fic for great justice! Prompt me, and I will try and write something. It will be small, and may or may not be coherent, but it will hopefully entertain. (I probably won't be able to sustain this for very long either, but we'll see. It will be an experiment!)



And why yes, I am still avoiding my long fics, why do you ask? They are giving me so much trouble and I'm pretty sure I had an epiphany about my big bang last night but it was wrapped in the middle of a seriously tripped-out nightmare I actually screamed my way out of for the first time in my life and now I can't remember it. WHY SO DIFFICULT, BRAIN???
[livejournal.com profile] cynicl  has done me a great honor and nominated "Dies Irae" for the rare pair category at [livejournal.com profile] spn_award. If you agree with her, second the nomination and/or vote! I'm somewhat uncomfortable with self-pimping in this way, but I also like the potential of shiny things on my internet mantle, as unlikely as that may be.

In other news, I am still ludicrously busy in RL, and it is irritating. My giant stack of critical reading is glaring at me accusingly as I write this, because I am officially entering the realm of dangerous procrastination. Alas, literature surveys do not write themselves. Even less so when I have about 48 hours in which to write one in.

And yet,[livejournal.com profile] inception_kink keeps dangling its prompts tantalizingly at me! I WILL RESIST YOU, INTERNET. JUST WATCH.
IT'S LIKE INCEPTION FX, BUT IN LIGHTS. CANNOT COPE WITH THIS LEVEL OF AWESOME.


Right, it's official: I'm doing [livejournal.com profile] inception_bang . I'm excited and terrified because I haven't done creative work on a deadline in a long while, but I feel good about this one. And I love Inception fandom like burning.

I should also add at this point that I'm pretty sure that I had a three-level dream the other night. It was incredibly confusing, and I'm pretty sure Cobb was my brother and Natalie Portman was my mom, and we were all ninja assassins. And as awesome as that sounds, at the time it was incredibly disturbing and terrifying because there were some horrifying visuals thrown in for good measure. My brain concerns me sometimes.

In other news, 'On the Wings of War' will be updated...soon. I was gone for the weekend, so I'm behind again. Le sigh. It'll be exciting, though, once it's on the page.
[livejournal.com profile] yuki_mura12 has given me art for 'On the Wings of War', and it is of the highest caliber and literally blowing my mind.

Check it out here.

If you have a DA account, leave her words of praise and awe. Because it has made my week and it is gorgeous beyond compare.

GO LOOK.

DO IT.
