So it's been about two and a half months since I updated. I think that might be the longest I've gone without updating. There's been a lot happening. The most significant of which is, I'm in Africa. I've been living in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda, for the past month and a half, working at a human rights organization. I do like Kampala, and East Africa (a couple weeks ago I went to visit my younger sister in Tanzania), but I am sort of homesick. Living in a country's capital city is not quite the amount of culture shock as if I were in a rural area, but it is still very different. Mostly I'm at the point of appreciating the different while starting to really miss the familiar. Also, I am so done with all the mosquitoes, and I still have five weeks left here. I finished my first year of law school. I didn't do as well grade-wise second semester, but I honestly don't really care all that much. I'm mostly just looking forward to starting my second year, now that I'm taking classes I've actually chosen. I finally finished my [profile] ksbigbang fic. I wanted to have that done back in May, but it didn't really happen. It took me until now partly because of work and Africa, but also partly because I decided to see the Avengers before I left for Africa. Which might not have been a good choice. I have no urge to write any Avengers fic, and no urge to go read the comics, so I think it's not going to be a lasting fandom. Part of the reason I knew Doctor Who and Star Trek would be lasting fandoms was because I started going back and watching old episodes because I wanted to be familiar with the whole universe, not just the reboots. So far, with the Avengers, I've been fine with reading fic based on both the movies and comics universes, and picking up anything I need to know about the comics from context and Wikipedia. Also, Tony Stark is my guy. I probably could have predicted that -- I have a deep weakness for angsty genius. Also, Steve Rogers/Tony Stark as OTP, which I also could have predicted. I just love the complementary opposites, particularly if they're also best friends (as apparently they were in the comics, even if Joss Whedon decided to emulate JJ Abrams and STXI's K/S dynamic with RDJ's Tony and Chris Evans's Steve. What is it with reboots turning the best friends dynamic into antagonistic-until-forced-to-work-together?). I think those are all the things of significance right now.
rynne: (four chillin')
I've been really sucking about updating. What's funny is that it's not because I'm too busy, or even that I don't have anything to say. Mostly I've been lazy. Though I also don't have as much to say. :p

Law school is actually going well, I think. I kept hearing horror stories, and then I get here and the workload isn't that much worse than college. Of course, I might be DOING IT WRONG, but I haven't had to spend more than a couple hours per class at the most, so I do actually have plenty of time for my own pursuits. I hadn't brought many of my own books from home because I thought I wouldn't have time to read them, but then the first week after classes I went and got a DC Public Library card.

But yes. I'm actually enjoying law school. My classes are interesting and I've made some friends and joined some clubs and am actually having a good time.

I did finally get a work-study job, so that's going to cut into my free time. I don't mind so much, though, since I really do have a lot of free time, and it's nice to be making money. I'm working in the special collections section at the library, which means, among other things, old rare books. So that's cool.

[livejournal.com profile] startrekbigbang is going well. I'm just going through my second draft for typos and awkward sentences from the rewriting I did of the first draft. I can't really do anything else at this point, not until my beta gives me feedback on the second draft. (And don't worry, [livejournal.com profile] ansley15, I still don't have a posting date, so no pressure. Once I have a posting date, though... :p) I am really looking forward to seeing what my artist and mixer come up with, though!
rynne: (guitar talk)
I'm tired, and I have to be up early tomorrow, but I don't really want to go to bed. Tomorrow I go to DC.

I'm too tired to do a long post About My Feelings, but...I'm scared. For the past several weeks, everyone has been asking me if I'm excited, and I sort of am, but mostly I'm scared.

I still feel like law school is the best path for me, and there's a lot about it that I'm looking forward to. But I only know partly what I'm getting into. I mean, I've read a lot of people's descriptions of what law school is like, but I don't know how it's going to turn out for me. And that's scary.

There were some one-shots that I wanted to write this summer, but didn't manage. I'm probably not going to get to those for awhile, since my priorities for the next few months are going to be school, work, and revising my Big Bang. I don't know how well I'm going to juggle all of that, but at least I have three-day weekends the entire year.

I'm still tired, but...I can sleep on the planes. I'm going to read fic while I still have time, for as long as I can manage to stay awake.
rynne: (once upon a time...)
Last week of class -- tomorrow's the final -- and last week of work. I'm not sad about class since while I've learned a lot, the course was easy and rather boring, but I will miss my job.

Still having trouble with betas for my Big Bang. Back in June I posted a request on [livejournal.com profile] kirkspock, but only got one response -- someone with a new journal. Still, optimistically, I sent the fic off. I asked the person to get it back by early August at the latest. Emailed them last week.

Yeah. Nothing.

This fic is 77,000 words long, and I do not want to leave it as it is. I think I'm going to try posting another request at [livejournal.com profile] kirkspock, but if that doesn't work, I just...I don't know.

Christ on a cracker. I love this fic and want it to be the best it can possibly be, but it seems more and more like I'll have to settle for how it is now. I don't think it's bad or hugely flawed, but I do think there are things that can make it better that I'm just too close to see.

*sigh*
rynne: (four chillin')
Of late I'm being a pretty one-trick pony. Or one-note song. Whatever.

I've got an outline of the third fic. I managed to actually come up with a plot for it, a plot that lets me hit a lot of things I wanted to address, so I'm pretty stoked. I think I'm going to start writing it tomorrow. I think it'll be shorter than the last one, but not too much. Maybe 15,000 to 25,000.

(Hah, watch me eat those words when I finish it. My initial estimates for the first fic were 40,000 to 50,000, and it ended up 77,000. But I at least have all the basic scenes for this new fic planned out, so all that remains is to actually write them.)

Note that right now I am also:

1. Working an office job. (Part-time, but still working.) This takes up my mornings.
2. Training for my online tutoring job. This takes up some of my evenings.
3. Taking a class at my local university. This takes up my afternoons.
4. Doing in-person basic literacy tutoring and also attending dance class. This takes up more of my evenings.

Ahahahaha well. Hopefully this is good practice for being really busy in the fall. Let's see how fast I actually manage to write, given my schedule.
rynne: (rain on me)
It's been raining all night. Raining! Not snowing! As in, temperatures above freezing!

I approve.

Especially since I went ice skating with some friends, in an outdoor rink. What amused me is that I had the most endurance, which is a new thing for me since I'm out of shape and lazy. My friends were ready to stop long before I was. But I didn't mind, since we just went back to [livejournal.com profile] velesia's apartment and split a bottle of wine.

Somehow we got onto the subject of Star Wars, and I mentioned that I could sing the entire The Saga Begins, the Weird Al Star Wars version of American Pie. So the other friend asked me to do it, because apparently she'd only ever heard one or two verses of it. And though I am a crappy singer, I did it, and I do not blame the wine. Oh, Star Wars. I think we're at the let's-be-friends stage of our relationship, but I still love you.

In one month I will be on a plane to England. Hopefully there will be less snow by the time I get there.
rynne: (you're a star)
Wow, where has the year gone? *sigh* It's rather odd to think that tonight is the last night of the year and the decade. Come midnight tonight, I'll have seen four different decades--80s, 90s, 2000s, and 2010s. Not bad for being 22. :p

I've seen a lot of people on my flist doing various year end memes, but I'm not going to bother. I haven't written enough fic in 2009 to make the fic meme worthwile (though that's depressing--I need to write more fic). My life has also not really changed from how it was last year, so the year in review meme won't say much.

This year was more good than bad for me, but it did not treat some of my friends very well, which brought it down somewhat. Personally, though, there were really only two things that stood out--Obama's inauguration, and me feeling like I got my shit together in terms of school. Both of those were very good, but otherwise it was basically unremarkable.

Tomorrow does mean new Doctor Who, though, and the end of an era. I still have not seen either Waters of Mars or End of Time part 1, because I've been waiting for tomorrow's episode. It's odd to think that it's practically here already, but my apprehension is increasing. I suppose all I can do, though, is wait for tomorrow and hope I don't have a hangover because I remember Journey's End literally making me sick and I don't need more of that. XD

I'm going out tonight with my friends, an am definitely anticipating a good time. Goodbye, 2009. I'm looking forward to 2010. :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!
rynne: (dance!)
Finally home. Well, I got home on Thursday night after what was probably the worst of my drives to and from school. It rained throughout Washington and Oregon, and then the sun set not long after I got into California, so I had to do the worst road in the dark. Two-lane highway in the middle of a forest with snow on the side of the road in the dark and signs warning for ice all over--gah. There was thankfully no ice, but that was about the only positive.

But when I got home there were Christmas cards waiting for me--thank you, [livejournal.com profile] shinyopals, [livejournal.com profile] imadra_blue, and [livejournal.com profile] fiery_twilight!

In other news, [livejournal.com profile] yuletide is...started. *sigh* I know what I'm doing with it; it's just the words that are being stubborn. But I'm just going to power through tomorrow, and then it'll be nice to have that done. It's been a long time since I've written fic--not since [livejournal.com profile] remixredux09.

There's a New Years Resolution, then, though I don't normally go in for them. Still, next year I really hope to write more fic.

Though tonight when I was trying to write [livejournal.com profile] yuletide, I heard the West Wing title music. Apparently my parents have been watching S1, so I went out and watched a couple episodes with them. S1 is definitely what got me hooked on the show, but it's not my favorite season--actually, I'm not sure I have one. Mostly what I love are various episodes rather than seasons. But anyway, my mom watched the show as it was airing (which was ten years ago now! wow), but she didn't remember very much so she kept asking me what happened later. We also discussed the politics in the show, because you know, I find I appreciate the show even more with every politics class I take.

Okay. Time to shut up here and work more on [livejournal.com profile] yuletide.
rynne: (not the only dreamer)
Happy Halloween! Apparently this is going to be my second post of the month. XD

It's not so much that things haven't been happening as that nothing particularly interesting has been happening, and I've not been posting because frankly I've bored myself at the idea of rambling on about how I'm pleased with my grades.

Study abroad stuff is coming along well, though. Last week I turned in a packet of forms and information, and I got my International Student Identification Card, so I think what's left for me to do is pay the deposit and figure out plane tickets. Which is actually turning out to be something of an ordeal, because England's gonna want me to have a set departure date when I first arrive, but I want to do some traveling after the program's over, but I don't have concrete plans yet. Since I don't want to travel by myself, I don't really think I can have concrete plans until I make friends with people in England who might want to travel with me. It's becoming a bit of a mess, and I've emailed a student travel agency to see what advice they can give me, but I haven't heard back from them yet, gah.

(Though [livejournal.com profile] heart_of_man, still interested in me coming to Germany for a bit after the program's over? The program ends May 15.)

In terms of fandom, Waters of Mars is beginning to fill me with dread. I want new canon, but on the other hand, I'm scared it's going to be something I won't like. Of course this applies even more to the last specials, but aadskgl. Getting scared. :p

I haven't been watching Sarah Jane, mostly because I haven't seen S2 yet. That'll be out on Netflix November 10, so I'm sorta torn between waiting for that and them moving to S3, or just starting S3 now. I think I'm patient enough to wait, though. For now, at least. XD

Also, somehow I got back into reading epic Harry Potter fics. *sigh* I do this every few years, since that makes time for good stuff to build up again, but now I've got an idea I like for an epic Harry Potter fic myself and I feel like staring at my brain in disbelief. It's been three or four years since I've written a HP fic outside of Remix, and I couldn't even finish the one long fic there I started. WTF is up with my brain now?

Well, there are at least more DW fics I'm going to try and write, hopefully soon. It'd be nice to get them done before Ten's run is over so that I can just be Jossed rather than writing AUs.
rynne: (four chillin')
Today's my sixth LJ-versary. I've had this thing for six full years now, and tomorrow begins year seven. Damn, that's a long time. This is definitely the most consistent journal I've ever kept, even if in recent years I haven't posted as often as I did in the beginning.

Not much has been going on with me. Yesterday I watched the Fourth Doctor serial The Deadly Assassin, of "Four in Time Lord robes" fame. Which made me sporfle, because ahahahaha Time Lord robes are utterly ridiculous, and Four just makes them funnier since it's, well, Four. It's also basically the only serial in the series without a companion, which was interesting but also sad.

I've also started learning Old English (or at least, how to pronounce Old English phonemes), and it's crazy. By the end of this unit we're supposed to be able to speak and write some simple sentences, but it has such odd pronunciation and spelling. I think it's awesomely cool to learn actual Old English, but just from what I've seen so far, it's also going to be really hard.

I have to go to California for a wedding this weekend, so I'm flying down on Saturday and back on Sunday. I'm looking forward to the wedding itself, since I'm very fond of the cousin getting married, and it'll be the first time I've seen my twin since early January, but I hate flying. *sigh*

I also have more paperwork to finish up for study abroad. I'm going to try and get that done this week, though I still have a few weeks until it's due. I am definitely not going to let my laziness get in the way of me going to London.
rynne: (poker (nevada girl))
Wow, I suck at updating. Totally suck.

Not that much news. I quit my job--my last day was Wednesday. It feels pretty early since I still have two weeks before I go back to school, but tomorrow I'm going to Vegas for most of the week, and a few days after that, some time in Sacramento, so I had to leave this early.

Not that I really mind. It was nice making money, and I did like my coworkers very much, but it was a very monotonous, uninteresting job, and I'm not sorry I'm done with it.

So yes. Vegas tomorrow. [livejournal.com profile] shinyopals, I'll try to take notes of things that might be useful for the fic (even if we haven't really been writing much lately... XD). I'm not sure about what kind of internet access I'll have, though, if any. Usually when we're there we just mooch off unsecured neighbors, but that's really spotty.

...Yeah, that's about it for what I have to say, which is why I haven't been updating. I have to get up early tomorrow and I'm tired now, so I'll go to bed. If I don't have internet while in Vegas, it's not like anyone will notice. :p
rynne: (soak up the sun)
Home now. Well, I've been home since Friday night, but I've been too lazy to update. :p

Things have been pretty good. First, I turned in my study abroad application. Now my part is completely done and it's out of my hands and I just wait for the response. I'm gonna be nervous about waiting, especially since I really, really want to go abroad (London! Months in London!), but it is a relief to have it out my hands now.

My last final was eh. I probably could have studied more for it and gotten a better grade, but it doesn't really matter. On the syllabus for this class my professor was kind enough to give us point totals for all the assignments, so I figured out, from the totals and my previous grades, what score I'd need on the final to get an A in the class. And I'd need to fail the final to get less than an A--literally, I'd have to get less than a 60%. Which is not gonna happen. So I have at least one class with a guaranteed A, which is nice.

I planned my drive home very well. I'd wanted to leave school at eight, and, wonder of wonders, I actually did. The drive was supposed to be thirteen hours, but that wasn't counting any stops I made, so I figured it'd be maybe fourteen hours. Except I speeded enough that I did do it in thirteen hours, including stops for lunch, dinner, and ice cream. And I only had to drive in the dark for about half an hour, just when I was getting into territory I really knew and had no problem driving through in the dark.

Saturday I went to [livejournal.com profile] velesia's graduation, then her grad party that afternoon, and then out for drinks that night with our friends. That was an awesome day, and also I had this awesome cocktail called a Juniper Smash. I don't remember what was in it now, besides gin, but one of my friends wrote down the recipe on the menu so he could try to make it himself.

Sunday I slept a lot. I really slept in, and then that afternoon was still tired enough that I needed a nap.

Today I did some shopping and job applications. Gah. I don't want to get a job--I want to laze around my entire summer--but I need one, and I think I can get one if I'm persistent enough, even if it's not the best job in the world. I know that places my friends work are hiring, so I'm probably going to try there as well and see if I can work with friends.

Now this week I think I can get to fandom obligations. Whoo!

But first more sleep. XD
rynne: (i love josh lyman)
Hopefully this time next Friday, I'll be home. Hopefully. Thirteen hours is a long drive for one day (and that's not counting any stops I make), so while I do intend to leave early, I'll probably get in pretty late.

[livejournal.com profile] heart_of_man came over tonight and we watched the first five episodes of The West Wing. I'd almost forgotten how much I love that show. And it seemed to be a hit with her, because she was laughing all the time. We stopped after "The Crackpots and These Women", which is one of my favorite S1 episodes. Mostly for Josh, of course, because I love Josh.

Hah. I told [livejournal.com profile] heart_of_man that I love Josh, and that he's so pretty when he angsts, and she made a comment about me and my angsty boys. This is so true! Give me a fandom and I will most likely glom onto the angstiest boy there. Also the heroes. Angsty heroes are my favorite. I just love it when people hurt and then keep going. Really gets me in my happy place. *g*

I'm...remarkably cheerful right now. I do have to write a paper this weekend, and then study for a bunch of tests all worth at least a quarter of my grade, but I spent time with a good friend and watched an awesome show and am about to read more fic about one of my angsty boys.

And? Right now "Carry On Wayward Son" came on, which is like the theme song of my angsty boys. And one of my favorite songs ever. Things are good. :D
rynne: (scully the sleeping beauty)
Am back at school. Also, Younger Sis is here! She came back with me, and she's staying until Tuesday night.

I adore Younger Sis, since she's fun and social and likes spending time with me. But she's also not quite as good at entertaining herself as Twin is, and of course as I am, so I don't expect to be online all that often over the next few days.

Tomorrow we're going to the Tacoma Art and Glass museums. On Tuesday, we're going to Seattle. We haven't decided what we're doing Monday yet, though we've pretty much decided against going to Canada. We'd not really do anything there, except, well, be in Canada. I'd like that, except Younger Sis isn't sure it's worth six hours in a car. :p

Okay, am so tired. Younger Sis also wanted to drink, so I've been drinking a bit. Am not drunk, or even tipsy I think, but am so tired. Will possibly be going to bed soon, but will be online and read fic more beforehand.
rynne: (smile)
Happy St. Patrick's Day! I am not getting drunk. :p

Went to see my dentist yesterday, and it turns out that I do not have TMJ. Whew! Big relief. Whatever happened two weeks ago was most likely just the incipient ear infection, I suppose. Still, I did get a mouth guard, just in case the pain comes back at some point, but my dentist says I don't need to wear it if I'm not in pain.

Hmmm. There are things I could say about my weekend and the convention I went to, but I don't really feel like it. I am so boring lately. *sigh*

Though on the other hand, I am getting really into Bones. Not along the lines of my big fandoms (Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Doctor Who), but more like my smaller ones, like X-Files and West Wing. I have no urge to write fic for it, and little urge to read fic for it, but I really want to watch more of it. Netflix, hurry up! XD
rynne: (the sun'll come out)
I am actually in fairly good mood right now, which is very nice after the last several days. Possibly having four different prescription meds has something to do with that, though. XD (I am somewhat surprised that an ear infection requires all those meds. Two antibiotics and two analgesics, with one of each being topical and the others general...seems a bit excessive. But it also seems to be working, so I'm not complaining.)

But yes. My ear is not currently killing me, though I'm not sure I'll be up to trying to sleep on it, which means I will probably have another uncomfortable night. There are only three more days left before spring break, though I have a lot to do before then, sigh. Research, and applications for summer internships, and laundry...

And I'm not going to have any time on Friday to deal with it, since immediately after my last class I'll be getting in a car and heading for Spokane for my Young Democrats convention. That'll be Friday to Sunday, and then on Sunday I'm going home to Reno for the rest of the week, and am really looking forward to seeing my friends there again. (They're really most of the reason I'm going home for spring break; otherwise I'd probably be lazy and stay here.)

And the week after, my younger sister is coming to visit me! This is so awesome--I really rather adore my younger sis. :) So she'll be here, and I can show her around Seattle and Tacoma, and that'll be fun.

I think I'll be going to bed soon, and that trying to fall asleep will be uncomfortable, but for now, I'm in a good mood. :D
rynne: (girls laugh together)
So nothing much has been happening lately. I finished a six-page paper today that I did not completely hate writing, so that was nice. XD I've got another paper to write before Monday, but it's just a one-page abstract for an article that I did, actually, read, so no worries.

There are two weeks until spring break. I'm going to be going home for most of it, but the first few days I'm going with my school's Young Democrats club to the Washington YD convention in Spokane. I think it'll be fun, though I'm not certain what exactly we're going to be doing. :p

(Though speaking of political organizations, I've not yet heard from Grassroots Campaigns. They told me they'd contact me within a few days, and that was on Monday. I'm not sure if I need to be more patient, or assume that it's a no go. *sigh*)

But for other, fic-related news, there are more fics I'm planning in what I'm going to call the Wanderverse, which idea comes from a line in Tolkien's Aragorn poem, "Not all those who wander are lost", because seriously, how much is that just exactly what I want this series to convey? :D So I'm officially calling it Those Who Wander, and unofficially calling it the Wanderverse.

The thing is, I want to be writing bonding fics between each pair of characters--I just did Ten I and Rose, so I want to write fic around Ten II and Rose, Ten I and Donna, Ten II and Donna, Ten I and Ten II, and Rose and Donna. Eventually I will totally get into the threesome stuff, and also general fic with Donna, but I want a fic devoted to each pair, well, bonding.

I even have something of an idea with the Rose and Donna fic, but I'm a bit nervous, because I was just looking at the list of my fics and you know, I've never actually written female friendship fic. My sixth year of writing fics, and I've just never really managed it. This is depressing and must be remedied, but of course there's a reason behind it, which is that for some reason I feel so much more comfortable with the male point of view. Looking at my fic list again, I've written like fourteen fics from female POV--fourteen. Out of over 150.

I don't know why I feel so comfortable with male POV, since I'm not male and my closest friends are women. And of course I want to write more women, but for this Rose and Donna fic I have a bit of an idea for, I imagine writing scenes in my head (which is what I do), but they feel stilted and unnatural. Which is odd, because like I said, my closest friends are also female and so I personally am very comfortable with female/female interaction.

Of course, probably the best way to get over awkwardness in writing is to practice it. So I will, especially since I really do need to write more women. It's just...gah! Why is it so hard? XD
rynne: (four chillin')
YAY PRESIDENT OBAMA! I'm trying not to be cynical. The campaign is over, and now he has to actually live up to those promises--or not. He's a man and a politician, and compromise and failure are inevitable. But when I watched the Inauguration and the camera panned over the crowds, I occasionally saw people wearing shirts that said "YES WE DID", I thought, yeah, we did that, but it's not the most important thing. Obama's speech said it--there are more challenges ahead--there always are--the important thing is the belief that we can.

I watched the Inauguration for a couple hours, though I had to go to class before I could see Bush get on Air Force One (or whatever it's called when the president isn't on board), which made me a bit sad. :p But while watching I saw one of the guys in Young Democrats, and he invited me to the celebration tonight at a pub downtown.

Experiment in social interaction )

So now I'm watching The Brain of Morbius. Y HELLO THAR, FOUR! I love Four. I know he's a common favorite Doctor, but there's a reason for that--he's just so awesome and quirky. :D
rynne: (facepalm Mulan)
Yesterday I went to [livejournal.com profile] velesia's and friends and I played some board games, including Star Wars Trivial Pursuit. I disappointed myself--I wasn't really expecting to win, since [livejournal.com profile] velesia's boyfriend knows a lot more trivia and has been a fan longer than I have, but it has obviously been too long since I've seen the movies and was active in the fandom.

Though it probably didn't help that he was completely sober and I was drinking. XD Had a bit too much to drink, really. And I think that might have been my first real experience with impaired judgment. Previous times when I've been drunk, it was because I didn't know my limits. This time I knew I should probably not have had that last drink, but I did anyway. I hit my limit and then deliberately went past it. I usually try not to do that.

I managed to get home fine, but despite drinking a bunch of water, was a bit hungover today. This was only my second time with any sort of hangover at all, and it wasn't that bad, especially once I got up and moved around a bit. I was more queasy than anything else, but still had lunch fine. But I'm also on my period atm, so this afternoon and evening my body plagued me with cramps that kept coming and going, so that was not helping.

I finally had about a three hour nap, but napping in the evening means I won't be able to sleep until late at night. This afternoon my internet kept blinking in and out on me when I was trying to talk to [livejournal.com profile] shinyopals, so that wasn't fun, either. This day was really just eh.

Though on the other hand, I did start watching the DW S4 DVD extras. I was sad that there were so few video diaries, but then I watched "The Journey So Far", and awww. That was really nice, and there were several more really good Doctor/Rose quotes from the production team. In the next few days I might watch it again and transcribe them, because I haven't seen anyone else posting them--unless someone has and I just haven't seen it, which is entirely possible.

Anyway. Starting to feel sickish again so think I will be going. G'night.
rynne: (bookstack)
Happy New Year. I am sick. What an auspicious start. XD

Last night I was also sick, but I still went out with a friend, and managed to have a good time. Also I met someone I haven't seen in eight years who actually recognized me and remembered my name. I would not have looked at her and remembered her without prompting, and it's sorta funny that I just randomly meet someone I knew in middle school in a bar on New Year's. Life, how odd you are.

Anyway. [livejournal.com profile] yuletide authors were revealed. I wrote:

Holding onto Hope (FAKE, Diana/Berkeley UST). It's funny--I was a bit at a loss with this story because I didn't feel I had a hold on the characters, and then many of the comments I got were compliments on characterization. Um, yay for validation? XD My recipient liked it, so that makes me happy.

Also, FAKE het. For the past few years I've been writing so much het. I think the only slash I've written in the past two years is a few Kingdom Hearts ficlets and two Remix pinch hits. I need to write more slash. Hah, maybe I should make that a resolution. :p

And I need to get off the computer. I think the bright lights are making my headache worse. I want to do the year in fic review meme, but I think that's going to have to wait until I'm not sick anymore.
