Okay, that's it. *kicks self back into LJ-land* I need to get back in this.
Senior project proposal due tomorrow. Unless I can think of something better in twelve hours, I'm turning in a proposal to write a novel about the end of the world. My other option has been nixed by the parental veto. Funny.Apocalypse
bunker!sex | ONE fade
threesome | to black
slash | sex scene
So, in the end, it makes no sense. And I think I need to change something about it. Not the plot, because "IT'S THE APOCALYPSE! EVERYONE HAVE SEX, NOW!" is kinda realistic in a weird way. But I need to do something other than...that. Or at least make an edited copy for my mom to read. >.<
Then there's the research paper that's supposed to go along with it. What am I supposed to do? How the Apocalypse Affects My Life? The End of the World in Literature
? Yeah, right.
Twelve hours. Right. Think fast.
DAMMIT, I WANTED TO DO THE ONE ABOUT STATUATORY RAPE! IT WAS ONLY A SEVEN YEAR DIFFERENCE! AND IT'S ALL CONSENSUAL!
New fic ideas popping around in my head that won't go away. All WiPs, of course, because that's the way my damn brain works. Most of them still need titles, because that's also the way my brain works.A TITLE WOULD GO HERE IF I HAD ONE
Summary/General Idea: It's 2112, almost everyone is dead or disappeared but Angel, who in a post-apocalyptic mess of a second try at LA (the first one fell into the ocean in the apocalypse that kills Buffy), is having a shitty time of it. The Initiative runs the military, Wolfram and Hart are in the Supreme Court and he's being blamed for some murders. This fic plays with reincarnation.WHY DON'T WE PRETEND THERE'S A REALLY WITTY TITLE HERE?
Fandom: Crossover between Angel
and Harry Potter
Summary/General Idea: Wesley teaches Defense Against the Dark Arts. SHUT. UP. STOP LAUGHING. I know you can picture it, too. And yeah, yeah, another apocalyptic mess of a thing, the usual drill. This will merrily fuck with timelines because I can't be arsed to make up a new generation of Hogwarts students, and no one would care about them if I did.WHEE, I'M A TITLE!
Fandom: HArry Potter
Summary/General Idea: I got so sick of seeing Marauders-Sue upon Marauders-Sue getting every single thing wrong
that I started planning my own MWPP romance with Sirius/OC (because I haven't seen ONE done right, and I doubt mine will be perfect either) and Peter/OC (because, really. Peter needs his share of the
love. And I liked the idea.) So, there'll be some skinny Ravenclaw chick who's shite with Transfiguration and would rather live than do the saving-people thing and a strong-willed Hufflepuff who's sick of Sirius and James pushing Peter around.
And then there's the obligatory notebook-upon-notebook King Arthur
fic that beckyincharge
and I are writing. We're trying to make the boys het, but it's just so hard. Twisting Dark Ages KA canon to fit and spawn some of the legends Malory put out? Kinda difficult. Gawain and the Green Knight? TOTALLY going to be in there, because I love Gawain. Quest for the Grail? FUCK no. I hate that part, it's stupid. I like KA Galahad better than blond, pure, Lancelot's son Galahad, whom I wanna smack around. KA Galahad I'd smack around a different way. Mmmm. Hugh Dancy. Arthur/Guinevere/Lancelot will be there if I have to write it myself, which I probably will. And YAY for rescuing of realistic damsels in realistic ways with realistic attempts at characterization on both parts!
Speaking of Hugh Dancy, Ella Enchanted
is coming out on DVD tomorrow. Now, words cannot describe how much I loathe that movie for raping one of my favorite books with a tent peg and kicking it onto celluloid (digital, now, but I like the word celluloid better). It was bad. Bad, bad, bad, and I wanted to KILL MYSELF through 75% of the movie. Obligatory dance number? Lucky for the theatre cleanup that I didn't have a gun, because I hear it's hard to get blood and brains out of cheap upholstery. The only thing they got right in that was Char. Hugh. My journal entry right after seeing it contained the sentence "Hugh Dancy is my new sex toy."
And that's why I'm going to buy it. It burns, it pounds my pride down into a little nub, but that's that. Hugh Dancy is hot and wears leather pants and takes off his shirt (BEAUTIFUL SKIN OMG), and I'm going to buy it. Along with Tempo, reasons for which are amply displayed in that link.
Right. I have to sleep tonight (as opposed to last night). Signing off now, and I promise I'll try not to neglect LJ from now on.
