That got your attention, huh? *G*

You know, I've mentioned a few times lately how much I LOVE the new Star Trek movie -- obviously, or I wouldn't be dipping my foot into the fandom. I've watched my downloaded cam copy a dozen times, and I've loved it more and more each time. I have the release date of the DVD marked on my calendar.

Right now I'm reading the novelization, and I love THAT even more -- more story, more insight into the characters. I know it's not necessarily canon, but MAN. I need to get a hold of this in paperback, because it's one of those books I want to own, physically, you know? I want to have it on my bulging bookshelf and be able to pull it out and leaf through the pages. The writing isn't fantastic, but it adds so much RICHNESS to the story I already love.

If you're interested: Star Trek Movie Tie-In by Alan Dean Foster

Plus, if you like Kirk/McCoy, you'll love it. Their interactions are the best.


Hey, speaking of Star Trek -- WRITING ALIEN PORN IS REALLY DIFFICULT! I mean... what do you call the parts? It's hard enough when you know exactly what they are and the various things they can be called! What if your porn star is not human? I've already established some physiological differences that are helpful rather than hindering, but... I'm still stuck in a couple of places.

... Later...

Okay, I just sort of winged it through, and... MY FIRST KINK FIC IS DONE! Well, the first draft is done, anyway. I'm always nervous writing in a new fandom, ESPECIALLY this one. ESPECIALLY ESPECIALLY with a species that we don't really know that much about, physiologically. It will need a bit more work, but if anyone is interested in giving it a once over beta, I would be thrilled. It's Star Trek 2009, Gaila/Kirk, NC-17, mildly kinky (the kink is suspension), I guess, I don't know... there's zero gravity involved (WHICH I RESEARCHED!). Any takers? I'll be closing it up for tonight and taking another look tomorrow, but if you want a glance at the first draft to give me some notes, that would be awesome.

I'm still on schedule so far for [community profile] kink_bingo! Hmmmm. What should I work on next? I should probably go on with my next Gaila fic, since I'm already running in that direction anyway. *G* What a hardship.

Hee. Still laughing over that video two days later. MUDDER FAHKER!


Crap! I missed the awesome [ profile] goddessrockgeek's birthday on the 24th. I hope you had a great one, hon!


Also, I wanted to thank whomever nominated my drabble "clock" for the Running With Scissors Award. Thank you so much for thinking of me! *smooch*


From [ profile] killerweasel: SDCC '09: Darren Bousman Reveals Repo! Prequel Plans SQUEEEE!



Okay, when are we starting the write in campaign to urge Gaila's TOTAL AND COMPLETE NON DEATH on JJ Abrams?

I brought the question over to [ profile] teamgaila (actually, someone else brought it first, I just brought it up again) -- hopefully we can get something together! There's already a contest for designing the postcard art going on, if anyone is interested!

Speaking of my green honeypie, this is, at the moment, my very favorite Gaila fic thus far: You're Gonna Make It After All by [ profile] igrokspock - it's gen, and stars Gaila, Nyota and Spock, with a hilarious guest starring appearance by James T. Gaila is having a really difficult time figuring out human sexual mores, and by the time she's spent an entire year studying them, she's gained "Two indecent exposure citations, one best friend, one amazing sex partner, one unexpected mentor, and a Starfleet-funded study of intercultural sexual norms." *draws huge, sparkly hearts around this fic*


OMG you guys! Remember that hatchling I thought died? (No you don't, don't lie, you totally don't pay attention to my fake dragon silliness. ;) It's back and its ALL GROWN UP! So now I have TWO Red dragons OMG! And one IS a female! *dances*

Okay, so... What do I do now? LOL

Let's not stop petting the little red one, because if she dies it will be THAT SAME HORROR ALL OVER AGAIN! Ooh, speaking of horror, I'm suddenly in the mood to hit my watch list again. *G*

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Heh. Now Jessica, the LONE female, is looking all shifty eyed at the pack of males hanging out with her.

Okay, someone needs to explain this to me. In Gmail, you have little link ads above your mailbox that are usually tied somehow to the subject lines of one of the emails. Well... I just got the weirdest, most non sequitor ad I've ever seen. It said "Severus Snape Fan? Watch Glee, this fall on Fox."

Huh? Because... Snape is going to be on Glee? Hee. That would totally rule, but I sincerely doubt it. Google is weird.


OMG You guys, you know what I just realized? This year is the tenth anniversary of both IWRY and Something Old! Okay, I need to do something to celebrate. Is there going to be an IWRY-a-thon this year, because there REALLY NEEDS TO BE! I'm currently in the process of posting ALL the chapters of Something Old to my NEW home (hopefully eventually permanent?) at The Archive of Our Own!

Yeah, I know, I shouldn't be so shocked that this completely slipped my attention all year -- half the time I don't even know what day it is unless there's something on TV. *G* But this has definitely got me thinking.

TEN YEARS, you guys, can you believe it? A DECADE OF B/A. (Well, actually 12 years, but this was a really seminal episode for fandom and fanfic. For those who weren't around back then, there were literally REAMS of fic dealing with the events of IWRY and its actual and alternate aftermaths. It inspired several stories from me, of which SO was just the biggest.)


You know, you find the best shit in random Alexander Skarsgard appreciation threads! This one was from [ profile] ontd:

LogoThere are
people with my name in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

Okay, that's just WEIRD. Actually, it's not weird at all. What's weird is that one lives two towns over and about 10 miles away from me, or at least she used to.


So I got up at the dickbase of dawn AGAIN to go see my cardiopulmonary guy. Can someone out there explain to me what the difference is between Pulmonary Medicine and Cardiology? I suppose I could Google it, but it's sort of just an idle question, since I have no doubt Medicaid wouldn't pay for both if they were redundant. ANYWAY, so for the first time in 15 years, someone is actually, ACTIVELY trying to address my eternally chronic sinus problems! I'm actually going to have a sinus CAT scan tomorrow! I have been complaining about constant congestion that almost NOTHING addresses for years now. It's part of the reason I'm still struggling with my CPAP (besides comfort issues, but really, those are bearable at this poin.) I just CAN'T use it if my nasal passages are congested, which they almost always are. He had me dump the crap Claritin D rip off the clinic's had me on for two years that does NOTHING, and is starting me on a regimin of Asotline spray and this thing that's sort of like a net pot, but less gross.

Oh well, at least my crappy clinic referred me to this guy in the first place. I really felt like I received quality health care today!


In closing -- you know a frakking movie ROCKS when it ROCKS HARD even as a crappy Russian cam copy. (Hi STXI! HI! When are you coming out on DVD?) Also, I JUST realized that the actor who plays Scotty is Simon Pegg from Shaun of the Dead! Wow, how slow am I?

Man, I could watch this flick a thousand times.


Please pet my baby dragon if you haven't already. Here's hoping she's a girl! :D

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
