Sooooo... after whingeing about the remix/redux, I've now written nearly 3,000 words for it. And I've got maybe another 2,000, tops, to go. Yeah. Weird. Because I found an X-Men fic on this writer's lj, and it's totally my preferred ship for that fandom (Wolverine! Rogue! Yes!), and hers is written from Rogue POV, and Wolvie's always been my favourite to write, so... yeah. Huh. Note to self: don't whinge before examining all the options.
On the other hand, it's been a long, long while since I last wrote Wolverine/Rogue fic, and I hadn't really felt the need to write any more (I kinda said all I wanted to say about the one relationship that interested me, in one of my fics). Whereas I don't feel so... finished, with Stargate. But hey. I love and adore my snarky Wolvie. He's so grumpy.

What is it with me and grumpy men? *looks pointedly at boyfriend* Surely this should not be an attractive feature? Hm.

Some of my crushes to date:
  • Robin of Sherwood (did a good line in pouting and looking through his bangs)
  • Jareth from Labyrinth (King Grumpy)
  • Rochester (classic grumpy)
  • Mr Darcy (ditto)
  • Bryan Adams (er... more 'bland' than 'grumpy' - but sounds fairly bad-tempered from his biography *thoroughly embarrassed*)
  • Raistlin from the Dragonlance books (grumpy through to downright bwahahaha-this-world-is-mine!mine!miiiiiiine! evil)
  • Howl from Howl's Moving Castle - the book, not the film (Expresses His Feelings With Green Slime)
  • Fox Mulder (hmm. Not overwhelmingly grumpy. But prone to bouts of sarcasm)
  • Adam Ant (did a song called 'Here Comes The Grump'. Diagnosed bipolar, or something along those lines)
  • Wolverine (grumpy to the factor of 10)
  • Jack O'Neill (grumpy-cute)
...oh for crying out loud. You know, maybe it's not me. Maybe all men are grumpy.

Because all the cool kids are doing it...

Meme I couldn't resist: Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

Only exceptions I'll make are the 'Valentines' series and the Terminator stuff - simply because I actually have a Plan for both of those (and, someday, will damn well get on with them). I'll write... well, as much as I can, depending on what responses I get.

My Stargate fic is here, all except for one short series called 'Getting To Know You', which I haven't been organised enough to update on my website yet, and thus is here.
My X-Men fic is here.

If everyone else jumped off a bridge... "Taxi! Embankment, please, and step on it!"

Oh, and on a totally different topic, I'm torn as to whether this is pointless in the extreme, or just cute... Either way, I kinda want one.

The Year In Fic meme

My year in fic - take the first line of the first fic you posted for each month of 2006.

Didn't post anything Jan, Feb, March or May - apparently not in a ficcy place at the beginning of the year. In June I posted 7 fics, and 6 in July. It may have been the weather, but more likely it was me trying to deal with some major job issues by metaphorically sticking my fingers in my ears and humming loudly.

Apr: "Hey, Logan! I'm glad you called. Didja find anything up there?" (Prolix, X-Men, W/R) 

June: "Someone needs to go with the Colonel." (Safe And Sound, Stargate)

July: Teal'c was unfamiliar with many Tau'ri customs. (Etiquette, Stargate, S/J)

Aug: "Cassandra Frasier, would you be able to explain something to me?" (What Do You Get If You Cross..., Stargate)

Sept: How did you tell someone that their child was going to be humanity's last hope? (Breaking The News, Terminator, S/K)

Oct: She was eating peanut M&Ms when she died. (Peanut M&Ms And The Twinkle in Her Eye, Stargate, S/J)

Nov: Jack rubbed his sweaty palms against his BDU pants, taking the stairs two at a time to the control room. (Practice Makes Perfect, Stargate, S/J)

Dec: Vala hadn't been on the ship long before she suspected there was something... kinky going on. (untitled, Stargate, S/J/D/T/V...)

edit: I've decided that old stories reposted shouldn't count - the first story I posted in November was a repost of an old one, so I've changed it to the first original posting of a story. It just makes more sense.
