One book, Young Wizards

100 Things of Blogging Master List

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}

Grabbed from karaokegal

My list is going to be 100 books I've read and my opinions and memories of them. It's going to be a grab bag of everything from children's books to adulthood.

EDIT: A series/multiple series set in the same universe counts as one item. I did this after going through and realizing one of my manga series would take up almost a quarter of the numbering without having anything really to show for it, as it's one continuous story line. After remaking a partial list with grouping books in series together, I am still at 43 items.

1-Going Bovine by Libba Bray
2-Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
3-Gemma Doyle trilogy by Libba Bray
4-Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
5-The Princess Bride by William Goldman
6-The Man Who Loved Books Too Much by Allison Hoover Bartlett
7-The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Writing Things

So, it turns out that the next thing I'll write is a Hunger Games roller derby!AU, not the Firefly fic or the Bruce/Natasha fic that I've been working on since last summer (I will finish editing it, I swear!). I've written a 600 word smut piece and 650 words of backstory all in the past two days, on my phone, while on public transit and on my breaks at work. The last time I was even close to this amount of fic writing was for my Torchwood 17 000+ word baby last year, and even then I stalled at certain points. I'm looking forward to exploring this 'verse. :)

Preliminary Thinky Thoughts on Torchwood: Miracle Day After Starting to Rewatch it Two Years Later

These are my tweeted thoughts about MD, all compiled into one text post.

Rewatching Torchwood: Miracle Day, for the first time in a couple years, and (unpopular opinion) it may be brilliant. Think about it: even though Torchwood was all about the aliens, it's what human beings can do to each other willfully which is most scary. And Torchwood: Miracle Day kind of highlights that, in my opinion, much like Children of the Earth. Yes, there's uneven pacing at times, & the story suffers from plot holes, but what Torchwood ep doesn't? It's almost expected at this point. I'm kind of excited to watch the rest of Torchwood: Miracle Day and figure out more thinky thoughts. :)

Dreaming about going back to school

I'm idly looking at the requirements for a BA in Modern Languages (French) in the UK even though I almost failed out of my science uni courses. And one year's worth of tuition for an international student at Oxford is the equivalent of all three years of tuition at my Canadian uni.

I still really want to do it though. I love learning, and am really smart, I just hate studying and get really bored and have a really short attention span while trying to study, but it might be different if I was learning something different. I wouldn't even use this degree, I don't think, as I have a job which pays really well. This would really be a "I felt like learning this" degree without it ever really benefitting me.

I'm just not sure how well I would do at the whole writing papers aspect. Oh, well, it's something to think about, especially as I'm thinking about setting up camp in the UK for the next two to five years, maybe even longer.

(no subject)

Finally got my writing mojo back, so the first thing I do is decide to tear apart the Bruce/Natasha fic that I wrote last summer and start fresh. I'm now wondering how closely I should follow the original draft, now that I have a better theme and something that I think will work for this fic without it being overly clunky. I need to give better backstory to things, and flesh out the relationships more, but I think that overall this new fic will work better than the old one did. Inkvoices may have a completely new fic to read over by the time I'm done fixing this fic, oops.

Fic: First Meetings Only Happen Twice (Or More) - Avengers - PG

Title: First Meetings Only Happen Twice (Or More)
A Gift For: lizardbeth_j
Rating: PG
Warnings: Mild references to violence
Pairings: Clint, Natasha (can be read as gen or relationship implied); Clint-centric
Summary/Prompt Used: Written for be_compromised’s Secret Santa 2012. I’m only now posting it to my journal. The last few months have only been slightly chaotic.

This is sort of a combination of mission and first time prompts, but it also morphed into something that I didn’t expect. I hope you like where I went with this.
Authors Notes: Many thanks to my beta, inkvoices, who gave me important feedback. Also thanks to this bar, both for being patient with me, and for being so awesome.
