Supernatural Poll Results Are In  
Thanks to all of you participated in my Supernatural poll :D

From the answers and comments alone, I see that the Sam/Dean love is very strong, and that many of you also feel as I do that Jensen/Jared are an OTP to the point where we would almost rather watch them together than get some action ourselves!

And lots of people miss John...

~~*~~

In other news, my Prison Break Fic Exchange story is done. DONE. I am soooo relieved. Now I'll ponder the title into the ground...

How's yours coming, if you're participating? Plz hurry!

~~*~~

Phase One voting for the Prison Break Fanfic Awards to narrow down has begun, and continues through March 7th. Please make your mark!

Thanks so much to all of you kind people who nominated me and/or my stories. I was thrilled with the nominations-- which included all my humor-ish pieces (! Even Agent Kim) and all the crossovers!

I was also secretly pleased to see how many of the nominated stories were from this last round of the Prison Break Fic Exchange-- partly because it gives truth to the idea that such challenges can bring out some of our best writing! I personally nominated 3 stories from that round, and there were so many others!

~~*~~

What's everyone got planned for the weekend? We will be babysitter free again *thud*, and I'm hoping my husband's Mom has no crises forthcoming. Last weekend was a mixed bag...

I'm helping a friend move tomorrow... Other than that I don't know. Watching SPN? Writing my new epic? (I apparently need one of those in each fandom).

Hope you have a good WE!

Are you still getting caught up on Supernatural? You'll have fun watching those episodes! *envies you*

Writing my new epic? (I apparently need one of those in each fandom).
:D I still have my not-epic that I srsly need to finish after, what, starting it a year ago? *dies*

I was going to go see 1001 with friends but...there's only singles left so we can't get tickets as a group. I'll think of something. I'm an industrious girl and I'm determined to go see a play. ;-P
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Venushalfshellvenus on February 24th, 2007 01:18 am (UTC)
Now I'm wondering what "1001" is, because I haven't heard of that one. !

I'd be catching up on my borrowed QAF (when the kids are asleep) if I could just figure out where I hid it from the kids.

And we're having some home-construction done, which cries out to organize (and purge down) the creepover from the affected places. :0

Oh man, that is SO ironic! I spend the majority of my high school youth trying to sneak QAF without my parents noticing. My best friend and I would watch it, finger on the pause or stop button, and when the raunchy stuff started I would get so paranoid. It's really quite ridiculous in retrospect, hahahaha.

1001 is an exploration of Arabic culture up through the ramifications of 9/11, taking place in Baghdad. It's supposed to be incredible. And I believe it, because it's also mostly sold out. So I'm probably doing dinner and a movie instead.

Sunday, I will role-play. * Is big geek *

I babysit! Okay okay, I know I'm expensive. And a slasher :O

PB fic exchange... it's shooting me puppy eyes. *frowns* I guess I can start brainstorming this weekend, heh.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: PB Final Hughalfshellvenus on February 24th, 2007 04:11 am (UTC)
You ARE expensive-- you're about double my going rate for sitters!

Plz, plz think thoughts about your fic. :D I remember you got the last round to me the day after I assigned it! :0
aeroport_art: aeroport_art on February 24th, 2007 11:41 am (UTC)
Aw shucks, less than minimum wage? Brutal >_< Unless your sitters just kids (like.. early high school), then it's okay. They're there to exploit :D I had to pay my dues back then too, lol.

Yes, I did set the bar too high for my last pbficexchange =_=

Don't ask. Well, it's not that bad. I should take it as a sign that I'm don't like my fic. The ones the I don't like or have the most trouble with seem to be hits.

What's everyone got planned for the weekend?
Fic writing. Sleeping. Eating. Messing around on LJ. Maybe watching season 1 of House. Gee, my life is so exciting.

For me, sometimes that's just writing an idea that I didn't come up with in, say, the last 48 hours. It can be a prompt that I chose from a challenge list voluntarily, and still... if it wasn't my own idea to write it initially, it just takes me longer. I have no idea why.

And those sometimes ARE the better stories, and who can say why? Maybe because we work harder. ??

Maybe watching season 1 of House.
Have you seen S1 already? Because if not, you are in for a treat. Snark, drama, unlikely friendships... and the "Three Stories" episode near the end of S1 is one of the best-written episodes of any show over any number of years that I've ever seen. I'd rank it in the top 10 of show episodes I've loved, over a ton of fandoms.

Which is to say... sounds like a pretty good weekend to me!

I think I'm taking the whale to the vet tomorrow. And possibly the other cat too. I can take them both at the same time and really double the joy. But at least, it'd be over then. ;)

I think that is it. It's like if it isn't mine then I have to take the time to mull it over like I do with my own ideas.

Now I'm really looking forward to watching.

When I read whale, I was like, "OMG is she serious?" Then I read the(and me 108 on a good day) to the vet because he wants to do everything - explore, bark at the top of his lungs, etc... - but what I tell him to do.

*sigh* Working. And working. And then? Working some more. As usual. Grr. I haven't even had a chance to begin thinking about my PBFE. I made one attempt to vote in the PB Fic Awards, but it's going to be so difficult that I just couldn't bring myself to decide yet, especially as I really need to read some of the stories again.

*cries* Are all your days off mid-week?

*hopes that people tip better on weekends*

I've gotten only 2 stories back of my 40, and I've got to get a backup writer for one already, so... *dies*

But in other news, I wrote Dean/OFC het. That's definitely new for me.

Gotta keep stretching myself. Maybe tentacles later (separate fic). :0

Yeah, I always have to work on the weekends, and for the past couple of months I've been getting either Wednesday or Wednesday and Thursday off each week, so that's kind of my weekend. Tuesday is my Friday, Friday is my Monday, and it screws me all up to the point that I usually can't remember what day it is most of the time :p

Hee, you wrote het. And not just het, OFC het. Crazy! I confess, once again I haven't been reading anything lately because RL is getting a little too nutty and I'm too distracted at the moment. But I do keep track of everythng I've missed :)
