Sure, I need to finish a diss chapter and an article, but I totally just signed up for STBB. >_>

Hey, remember when I could finish stuff? Yeah, me neither. The side effect of the end of the semester is me being even MORE ADD. Like, tonight, after finishing my paleography homework, I meant to read Tennyson but wrote some fic instead.

So, here's a bitlet of an Avengers WIP tentatively called Friends, Lovers, or Nothing, because it wasn't meant to be a real fic, and YET. Stuff would happen. Like all my other WIPS...maybe summer, yeah?

So. Snippet below.

I went in with high expectations and they were met. I thought pretty much all the performances were nailed and the ones I was worried about--like Josh Hutcherson and Lenny Kravitz--were completely blown out of the water. I was always kind of iffy on Peeta but goddamned if I'm not on Team Peeta now, and I also may have a crush on Cinna. (Also possibly 'shipping Katniss/Cinna, which ew wtf self?)

Anyhow. SO PATHETICALLY BEHIND. Must make a paper happen in four days and finish an article by Saturday. WISH ME LUCK, 'KAY!

PS Check out this vid: That's what's called EDITING, folks. It also really makes me think of CW: The Confession, possibly because of the red washes. Still, lovely work!

So, deciding to take three classes this semester was...special, even for me. I can do it, but I'm going to have to be the master of time management/planning etc. I have a rough schedule of completion dates for my secondary readings and when to write papers, etc, I just have to stick to it.

The sticky whicket will be moderating my writing. I made a push to finish fic over the weekend so I could get it safely out of my head and focus on studying. But, well, I'm weak. So I'm going to have to watch that.

In completely unrelated news, I got the new issue of the Star Trek comic (#5) and it was the first one to be actually interesting. It goes into some more of Kirk's childhood issues (though the presumed timeline of events doesn't really match with the film) and his brother plays a significant part, which I approve of most heartily!

I sat down tonight to write fanfic and ended up writing an article proposal instead. What is my life even.

ETA: Annnnnnnnnd when I submitted it at like 11pm, I got a reply of "YES PLZ" at 8:30 am. AND they want it by April 1. HOW DO THIS TO MYSEEEEEEEELF???

So Scott has been painting his zombie mini army, which I blame for a perfectly logical dream of Buffy fighting zombies with Captain America. Which, I just want them fighting something togethernow. I'm trying to decide how they would even function together: I can see the mutual respect, Buffy thinking Steve is a hottie, Steve completely admiring a woman who has literally spent half her life saving the world, Buffy worrying it would be like Riley all over again, Steve being appalled by the Initiative.

I'm writing an Avengers academic!au fanfic and just spent the last twenty minutes figuring out what Steve Rogers would have on his Lit of WW2 syllabus.
caitri: (printer)

I'm writing Erik/Charles into a fic with Kirk/McCoy.

In the printer!verse.

Because this makes sense in my brain.

And somehow gives me an excuse to finally read Prague.
caitri: (Charles and Erik)
...I see this:

and it makes me think of them:

caitri: (obvious flirting is obvious)

Also I need Charles/Erik icons like, yesterday.

ETA I adore the interviwer's WTELF?!face, and then he tries to stop Fassbender from finishing singing and fails utterly. Brilliant!

*cannot look away*


In other news, the ending is in sight-ish for the kushiel fic, the vampire!Jim fic continues apace, my PCA talk is going to epic, and I finished another draft of my tenure statement.

Yes, I did put all those things in that order, what are you looking at me like that for?

I love Jim/Eomer so much and it CAN'T WORK OUT.

They are adorable together. I was not expecting this. I think I like them even more than Jim/Bones.

WTF Self????
caitri: (archer)
1) After today, I want to have my iPad's babies.

2) Took a nap, dreamed of Jim trying to get Bones to join the Academy soccer team. (And sleep-drooled a lot. I recognize y'all can live without that visual but I thought it was funny.

3) Scott's new place is nice. And he lives in an area that has a higher per-individual income than Columbia MD which kinda freaks me out a bit.
caitri: (Default)
So Scott's stuff is pretty much out of here, and I've cleaned and redecorated a little to make the holes in the house seem smaller--only partially successful there--and I have this near-overwhelming urge to bake. Wtf, self?

Y'know, I was having a really good day. Like awesome. The scifi exhibit banners went on the building (pictures forthcoming) and they look gorgeous. My friend did the job interview and it went great. Scott's in a good mood tonight.

I was HAPPY, godsdammit.

So I did what I do when I feel happy and it makes me stupid. I called my Mom. In fairness she was bearable for most of the conversation. But then she does what she always does, she mentions her friend Mrs. Satan (not her real name). Apparently she's been "worrying" about what I'll do about finding my "next job" because a library couldn't possibly hire me because of the way I dress etc. I sweetly said if they worry so much they should feel free to call my boss, and I'm sure he could tell them what to do. And then I hung up and had a cry in the shower, and now I feel all gross.

Now why is it that I'm twenty-eight, professionally successful, mostly together emotionally most of the time, and I have to go through all that, and I HAD to have known vaguely that's the way it was going to go down, because it always seems to? WTF, self?
