Hi! *waves* I've been around, but I went through a period where I didn't really feel like posting. Anyway, here's what's been going on:
Being in fandom_stocking
was an interesting experience. I unfortunately didn't do very well in the stocking-stuffing department, so apologies to everyone! I did get some great gifts myself, though, including gifts from people whom I don't normally interact with online. That was pretty awesome. My great swag included a Four and Sarah icon
(how did they know? *g*), an Eleventh Doctor fez!fic
(which was awesome -- the world needs more fez!fic), a Four and Sarah missing scene ficlet
(which I keep re-reading because it's wonderful Four and Sarah and therefore makes me extremely happy :D), an incredibly perfect SJA ficlet starring Gita
(which is exactly what I would've wished for if I had done Yuletide, and here I got it just as a random gift!), and a very fun romp!fic with (wait for it) Four, Six, Ten, Sarah, Harry, Evelyn and Martha! (part 1 here
and part 2 here
I managed to write exactly one ficlet for fandom_stocking
: a G-rated TNG ficlet (my very first shot at writing that fandom) with Picard, Riker, Data and Q, which is here if anyone is interested
. There's a fandom_stocking collection at Archive of Our Own, and I keep thinking aboutf posting this there, but I would then have to come up with a title and a summary, and I have no ideas for either.
In other news, I recently saw the first two-part episode of the American version of "Being Human." It's sort of surreal, because I think I would normally really like the show, but instead of sitting back and enjoying it, I keep comparing it to the original version, usually unfavorably. It's not even that the show is worse, necessarily; it bothers me just because it's different. For example, the actors all have American accents, and that seems wrong. The actors look different (because they're, you know, different actors), and I don't like that either. Then the characters' names are different, and that keeps throwing me because someone will say "Josh" and I don't know who that is until I translate it as "George" in my head and go "oh." The storyline is also different, which is probably a good thing, actually. Anyway, I think I'll keep watching for now and see what happens.
Finally, there's another WIP challenge starting up in February at the DreamWidth comm writethisfanfic, and I'm trying to decide if I should do it or not. Last time was a huge failure, and January has been a completely unproductive writing month, which means that doing the February challenge is likely to be either a really good thing or a horrendously bad one, but I can't predict which it will be.
