in exploring old unsent letters... (back dated)

Collapse )

so, yes. that was yesterday, when i was randomly struck with the urge to livejournal the alan davies incident, and had no frelling internet access. but anyway, i'm here now. hallowe'en costume is nearly completed - just need to... straighten the wig. if i turn up in a white clown wig, don't. bloody. ask...

rocky in two days! :D am reverting to tradition of going as magenta; clare will be columbia, but we're organising such tonight (assuming she turns up...) have too many coursework assignments to choose things for.

so far, i'm considering: for paranoid & apocalyptic cultures, possibly, david blaine and illusionists through history (part of increasingly paranoid culture) - because i watched all of the david blaine randomosity on channel four last night and right after he started the 'glass box' stunt he haunted my dreams for two days running. i hereby decree that the man in a lunatic, but he may suit my coursework perfectly...

and for contexts 3, which is all about responsibility as a writer, i'm thinking of dave peltzer and the "child called it" trilogy, and his responsibility in terms of writing about child abuse. but that may turn out to be horribly complicated and involve lots of research, so i might end up ranting about the phantom movie and the producer's responsibility to the fans vs. general public. *shrug* they do say to write what you know...

still no "um...?" from dave ellis about the fanfiction independent studies idea, so clearly he thinks its a valid literary form, too. :P

anything for an easy ride, me...

so... yeah. i think that's everything. still need to get a white shirt and black tie for the costume - does anyone have a black tie i could borrow to save my having to buy one?

i keep considering re-filing all of my writings into "finished" and "work in progress" as well as the current fandoms i've got them sorted into... it would make life far easier, and might actually make me finish a few of them. at last count, i think the WIP list was something like...

voyager - "memory", "unimatrix zero ii" (i never claimed to be good at titles when i started these things...), "bohemian - beauty"
farscape - "the farscape horror show", "words", "rhapsody", "the crossover of doom" (although i think we can let that one off...)
sunset boulevard - "tango up on sunset" is constantly unfinished...
frasier - "something old, something new" - the sequel to "til donny do us part", which was a sequel to the finale of season 7 (?), "something borrowed, something blue"...
pokémon - the pokéfic, "journeys"... i found my plan for that the other day...
jonathan creek - both attempts at chapter fics, neither of which have titles...
buffy - "counterpoint for chosen", but i have only just started that one. and, i guess, the crossover fits under buffy, too...
phantom - "freedom from darkness", the four-part saga, still only has three and a half parts; "sweet intoxication" is still going but will hopefully actually end.

not to mention the various original things i start and never finish. and not to mention the things i have yet to start...

"the phantom of the sickbay" (and "the phantom of sunnydale", possibly), "my fair borg", "leviathan rouge", "the wizard of the UT", "sunset at tiffany's" (although that one's seeming more likely), etc, etc, etc...

i need another brain. another pair of hands would be nice, too. that's all i need. a brain and two hands...

anyway, apologies for the pointlessness. this is what happens when i am deprived of the internet for this long. just be glad you're being spared the usual late-night/early-morning angst; i can think of several occasions where there would have been some. ;)

if i don't livejournal after rocky (which is unlikely), i'll see most of you on saturday. 3.00pmish, briar rose, free drink for pirate-alikes, if you missed the email...
