I got my Yuletide letter! I have no idea what to do! So, getting into the spirit of things, I wrote around three times the minimum requirement in the last twelve hours for something completely unrelated.

title: assurances of attachment (1/2)
verse: First Impressions! (always-a-girl!Darcy, always-a-boy!Elizabeth, spoilers for literally the entire fic)

And I think this is the last of the end (...lol) of the year stuff. I look on it as a sort of meme and borrowed the format from[personal profile] lettered.

Blurb: Leia gets her chance to deal with her heritage. In baby-steps.

Pairings/warnings: No pairings; original character; so AU of my AU (Revenge of the Jedi) that it's canon-compliant; a challenge to myself to get two characters who, properly, could never, ever meet into the same scene.

Length: one-shot/double-drabble, kinda (272 words)

I ranted about Han's skeeviness in ESB for yesterday, so I'm doing the unpopular opinions today! Though probably not for every conceivable fandom.

And [personal profile] tree just reminded me that I have been slacking on my mission to spread memes like a bacterial outbreak, so here are some proper ones.

I've discovered that I don't hate religion, per se, just mine. Um, yay.

But seriously. A teacher explaining that there has only ever been one universally accepted model of marriage until now as the lesson to be learned from Abraham's family is so horrifically wrong that, in retrospect, it starts coming around the other side. That family tree is the simplified version I made to help me sort out the main characters. Now I wish I'd drawn it on the board.

I keep running across a not-quite-trope -- an argument -- that I find immensely problematic. I'm going to talk about it now, through my own feminism, which may not be yours. Consider yourself warned for that, along with discussions of violence and sexual assault.

Title: First Impressions (6/13, 7/13)

Nothing much important today, except I wrote over two thousand words of Revenge. It's probably a bit indulgent, but I'm actually pleased - I've managed to get the PT alternate canon in through occasional exposition and Luke's Jedi training (current unit: clairvoyance). In some ways, it's almost more about the alt!backstory than about the present; the sequel will probably focus more on the present-day characters, but there's a lot to set up. Anyway, I'm a bit gleeful because I managed to include my OFC even though she's been dead for twenty years, hint at the Anakin/OFC pairing, and more than hint at Bail/Padmé.

Come at me, Mary Sue paranoia.

Leia's plotline is finally settling into place, too; I should be able to end this with the coronation like I wanted, even though it wreaks some havoc on the rest of the outline, and fanwank her unexplained loss of authority in ROTJ. Without actually doing to her what ROTJ did. Hint: my post on the slave Leia debate is a pretty strong clue of what doesn't happen. She's not going to end up General Solo's soldier girl, either.

I turned in my last essays today, and got my Spanish final back -- 56.5/59, so hurrah.  It was my last Spanish class, so ... I don't know.  It's inconvenient to schedule around sequential classes, especially when they fill up as quickly as Spanish does, but I'll miss it.  I've been studying off-and-on for ten years, and I forgot just about everything I knew for five of them, but it was super-easy to pick up once I started up again. 

Eh.  I'm partly relieved for the scheduling reasons, partly terrified that I'm going to lose it all over again (I'm not anywhere near fluent, but I know all the verb tenses and stuff), and partly ... wistful, I guess.  There aren't a lot of classes where the material seems to leap into your brain of its own accord, whether you're trying to learn it or not.  Anyway, I'll be happy if I just pass English, and I should do well in psychology.  I generally do, for some inexplicable reason - I'm really not a people person.

I think I may have escaped meditation class.  I begged the psychology of women prof to let me into her course, and she's like "you're a senior and your class got cancelled after the freshmen had signed up?  ALL RIGHT THEN."  Yay for awesome profs!  Then I discovered the heckyeahlukeskywalker tumblr and I seem to have somehow lost about five hours. 

Oops!

Warning:  this is very long, very rambly, and very inconclusive except for some strong opinions in the middle.  But hey, no TV Tropes!

So, I will definitely be writing The Adventures of Lucy Skywalker for the au_bb. I might try Revenge of the Jedi as well, since I’d really like to get it done; I definitely won’t be doing the massive P&P genderswap, but that’s okay. It’s going to a good home and I’m still creator/editor/consultant, so it’ll be like … partial custody.

After writing for twelve hours straight, I finished my au_bb fic (the genderswap is, more or less, DONE), got my art, posted, and then seriously needed to decompress.  So, as the title might suggest:  Star Wars!

I always find it strangely absorbing -- like, I can't think about anything else for hours afterwards, if not days, and even then it infects my dreams and it's all very peculiar.  Thus it's really the perfect thing when I want to stop thinking about, pretty much, everything.  In this case, I'd just finished finals, so I went all out, and watched the whole trilogy.  In one night.  Starting at about 9 PM.

... was weirdly exhausting, though more of it came from the text than probably any other scene.  Gah.  I've only been dreading it for a year and a half, because I really hate that scene.  I mean, not the writing, of course -- and it has awesome bits -- but I've never been able to really go for the "yay Elizabeth!" because ... um, she's too wrong.  And also, the contrast to her graceful refusal of Collins (despite even more severe provocation) is -- great.

I've been poring over P&P, searching for letters for the present draft, and considering how to recreate --er, everything -- in the next.  For me, fanfic is just analysis in narrative form.  (Crossed that out because analysis is awesome.  And mixing the interpretative experience with the creative is also awesome.)  Bad fanfic, as opposed to sheer bad writing, is bad analysis.  By its nature it comments on the text - e.g., an AP says "this could have worked too! (and maybe better)," an AU says "in this situation, the character(s) would have acted like this," a prequel says "this could have happened before the story" and so on. 

The same goes for my fics, of course, and the ones I dislike the most tend to be the ones where I go "... you know, I don't really believe this myself."  All fiction calls for willing suspension of disbelief.  Fanfic too!  And if the suspension cords start breaking all over the place, it's my fault.  

So, since this is my first attempt at a fully alternate-storyline P&P fic, I've been reading P&P.  Over and over.  Seeing what leaps out, etc etc.  And as I've been planning and writing, some ideas have leapt out, which I find mildly interesting.

thinky stuff )

So, I've signed up for AU Big Bang.  And I got approved, which means that my plot bunny is AU enough.  (I didn't really have any doubts.)  And, if when I manage to finish it, there will be a picture.  For my story.  *wibbles*  (It might suck, of course, but it might be, you know, SHINY.)
