Yeah, finally have a little bit of time. Just got the beta on one of my stories…just want to give a shout out to Ann, editor extraordinaire! She pushes me to improve my writing and sees flaws that I tend to overlook! :-)
Also updating my Star Trek Enterprise/Stargate Atlantis fanfic archive Writin’ Across Universe on Dreamwidth. I’m woefully behind, but I did add several old and new fics to it. In the next few days, I’m going to post some fics that I haven’t posted anywhere else for various sundry reasons. Here’s a short list of them:
“Trip and the Terrific Tardis” A ubercracky Challenge, Star Trek: Enterprise/Doctor Who crossover. Trip Tucker and Malcolm Reed find an odd 50’s style English Police Box floating up in space…
“Squawk means Hello, Cluck means Goodbye” Star Trek Enterprise. The Big E has a First Contact with an avian species and Hoshi learns their language. Unfortunately, everyone’s a critic, and Hoshi gets really pissed off at her friends’ “helpful advice”.
“A Pact with Mephisto” A NC-17 story from the Mirror Universe, from Lt. Hoshi Sato’s POV during ENT’s “In A Mirror Darkly, Parts I and II” I don’t usually write NC-17 stories (a couple close to being R-rated), but this one’s an exception.
1. It’s bigger on the inside.
2. Run for your life!
3. If you look up Genocide in the dictionary, you’ll find the Doctor’s picture and the caption “Over my dead body”.
4. The angels have the phone box. Also, don’t blink.
5. Whenever the Doctor wears a tuxedo, something bad happens. Even if it suits him in a James Bond kind of way.
6. Salt is too salty.
7. The Doctor is slim. And a little bit foxy. And Rose likes it.
8. Shakespeare got the majority of his lines from the Doctor.
9. Lots of planets have a North.
10. A Time Lord victorious is wrong.
11. No one wants Klom.
12. One may tolerate a world of demons for the sake of an angel.
13. Everyone knows who Harriet Jones is.
14. The Doctor saves planets, rescues civilizations, defeats terrible creatures… and runs a lot. Seriously, there is an outrageous amount of running involved.
*Fantastic, Allons-y and Geronimo!*
Describes Doctor Who’s Tardis, the Delta Flyer (Star Trek Voyager) and the Time-Traveler’s ship in Star Trek Enterprise, “Future Tense”.
Where else can you fall through a library and end up in a swimming pool?
Eleven is all right. He’s kinda quirky in the same way as Ten, but I hope he gets a handle on his “new” body and personality pretty soon. :-/ (Fish sticks and CUSTARD? Ew. Just Ew.)
I miss Ten already. David Tennant’s last line had me bawling. :-(
And dammit, I want my very own sonic screwdriver.
Yeah, sometimes anger can be a great motivator in being creative. Yesterday, I had a crisis of confidence regarding my writing and art. Usually, I can shrug off stupid, inane, and just cruel criticism of my work (construction criticism I can handle; just plain mean B.S. I usually let fall by the wayside). Being in pain from an RA flare-up wears you down, and I just simply lost it.
Thank God for support. The gang at Triaxian Silk gave my sagging confidence a much-needed boost and my buddies on Twitter also gave me a reality check. I dunno, after dealing with RA, fibromyalgia, 2 autistic children, 1 cranky toddler (who’s heading into her terrible 2’s much too early for my sanity) and 1 clueless husband…I just wanted to just hide.
Naah. No such luck. The plot bunny bit me in the shower and now I have a snarky Enterprise fic on the works (not counting the other two I’ve got going at two different sites…long story). And having kids kinda pulled me out of my funk. I mean, what can you do when your autistic/artistic nearly-seven-year-old decorates his mattress in a funkydelic style…using your watercolor pens?? I could have either laughed, cried, or taken a picture. I think I should’ve done all three.
Maybe I’ll start posting my fic on here. Most of my Star Trek Enterprise and Stargate Atlantis stuff is here and my non-fanfic stuff is scattered all over the place. Once I get it together…and that’ll take a while.
Oh, and I did get some nice compressed pastel sticks at A. C. Moore. I love 40% off coupons.
