Lots of things.
-I'm back. I might stay around this time. Sorry 'bout all the not being around and stuff. I blame the holidays, because they just happened and are therefore a convenient if inaccurate excuse.
-Somehow, and I'm really not sure how at all, I kind of accidentally just wrote the first scene of my own version of The End of Time. So far, franchises I have managed not to plagiarize the worst parts of include: Star Wars, The Matrix, and The Matrix again. Franchises I have
managed to plagiarize the worst parts of include Doctor Who.
--I can't remember what the whole Skeletor thing reminds me of. Can any of you? It's not Skeletor himself because I've never seen Masters (heh) of the Universe, and his Wikipedia entry makes me think he's only just similar enough to Skeletor!Master for the Doctor to make a joke about.
--So far, my fic is not about hating Christmas.
-The Daily decided my last post didn't waste enough words making its point to be worth including, or something. lol.
was recced on calufrax
-TEAM DOLLHOUSE WON!
--I made rep! Like a month ago. I am now privy to all the moderator secrets, and let me tell you, there are tons of them and they are the best possible secrets you can imagine times like five suitcases of awesomesauce. You have no idea the wealth of knowledge and creativity which we Oracles, and only we Oracles, are privy to. Also the gifs. Team Dollhouse gif parties are nothing, NOTHING!! compared to what the mods get up to.
-Graphics computer: very dead. I think for reals, this time. Like, I-just-failed-to-enter-two-20in20s dead. Further proof that deadlines and I don't mix. My icontest and ficathon days are over.
, the two-day ficathon, will run January 9th and 10th. Be there.
could use more entries. Ignore the deadline; we haven't actually closed that round yet.
-Magic Unhinged is lol.
--On every corner there's a giant metal Santa Clause who watches over us with glowing red eyes. They carry weapons and they know if you've been bad or good. Not everybody's good but everyone tries.
(Ctrl+f for "beta".)
--The stockings were hung by the beakers with glue, labeled "control group," "s.1." and "s.2."
-I have been watching SJA (I'm early in S2 right now because of FAILY DVD REGIONS and lack of compensatory piracy) and I think I'm starting to like it more than Doctor Who. It's like they took Doctor Who apart, and they put everything that makes it great into SJA, and the rest became Torchwood. If SJA dies, they had better make Clyde a companion. I'm serious. TAKE NOTE OF THIS, CARDIFF.
-There is Morrowind/Oblivion fic in the back of my head. TES lore is so cool, when it makes sense. The fall of Ald'Ruhn and the laughably easy time even the lowliest Telvanni must have had getting to the sigil stones in the Oblivion gates both need some fic attention.
--Also a machinima that is far beyond my means to make. Someday this is going to take the Internet by storm, and/or get me sued.
--I want to read Loveletter fic, but based on the likely false premise that Landfall was the Ministry of Truth.
--I'm sure there's some lore not
entirely derived from the devs' forum posts that is also fic-worthy.
---I still think Ten meeting Sheogorath would be hilarious.
-I need to see Hamlet.
-When Doctor Who is really bad, Murray Gold's music suddenly feels completely appropriate to what's happening onscreen and is not at all jarring or problematic. Discuss.
