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.

UNPOPULAR OPINION FRIDAY SATURDAY

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.

Memes! )

So, au_bigbang season is nearly over, and my fics are just about done. Naturally, this means it's time to come to the crushing realization that they're both awful and I should have done everything different and if only I had procrastinated less, or ... gone to school less ... I could figure out how to make them not-awful.

Oh look, another acewank. Fail on both sides this time, hurrah, and the strangely inevitable discussions with non-asexuals taking it upon themselves to define asexuality for reals, and some aces rushing in to cry 'but we're not the bad ones!' while others try to take epic levels in douchebaggery, and something about how how non-asexual people are really just like demis. Apparently, non-asexual people customarily feel no sexual attraction whatsoever until they're well into a relationship. Uh, the more you know, I guess.

There's a cool-looking fic meme (that maybe two people will respond to, heh), but... I actually need to write, so I'm not going to do it yet. However, gdocs is down, so I'll do another with a clear conscience.

I'm way behind on my replies, but eh, whatever. At least I'm nearly done with 10, which has been a sloooow chapter. Though it sped up about the time that that Luke saved himself from the flesh-eating beetles. (It makes sense in context.)

(Maybe.)

So, a bunch of memes before I finish up 10 and head straight into 11, which I probably won't have cause to answer, but ... meh. (At the moment, that's rather my response to anything. *eyes posting date*)

I've planned out the rest of Ch 10 -- if all goes well, I should be getting towards the end of the story soon. I've already written the final chapter, so yaaaaaay.

I found a Harry Potter and a Jane Austen 30 Day meme. I know what I'll be doing when this is over!

In other news, I finished the damn essay (synthesis of Northanger Abbey, The Monk, and The Others -- yes, I chose that particular combination) thanks in large degree to [personal profile] hl  for rewatching The Others with me, prodding me with sprints, and generally being awesome. Also finished Ch 9 of Revenge and I'm 400 words into 10, which will hopefully bring Luke and Leia to the same planet for once. Telepathy just isn't the same! I think I actually have some hope of getting this in on time. Hey, even First Impressions was a day late.

Also, [personal profile] hl  and I are going to watch Avatar: the Last Airbender at some point, because she hasn't seen it and I'm always up for rewatching and it will be amazing. I just rewatched The Southern Air Temple today and ;_; but wow, gorgeous. And Jason Isaac's voice will do just fine until we get Mark Hamill's. (QOM!Luke's students make a concerted enough to never anger him, ever, just so he won't use THE VOICE on them. The voice that sounds just like Fire Lord Ozai. The Organa twins are quite well-behaved around him, too. Lyra, on the other hand, doesn't much care. Probably because she sounds just like Azula. :P)

Wow, Day 15. Awesome. Now if I just managed to get my final assignments into my English class (or, ah, wrote them), everything would be lovely. On the upside, hele and I are going to have a spectacular writing day, and my artist's fanmix looks super cool.

anghraine: from the 2005 p&p: darcy standing at a piano while georgiana plays it (the Skywalker twins)
So, I started this intending to talk about the ... irregular circumstances surrounding the guardianship of the Skywalker twins. It mostly just became this incoherent rant about how much Yoda taking command of the twins bothers me. And is probably character-bashing (and maybe PT bashing?), so consider yourself warned.

Well, I managed to keep up for ten days, anyway. And besides, it's not my fault that lj was down last night so it didn't matter that I forgot about it.

Anyway, good thing in Random Updates About Elizabeth's LifeRead more... )

#wrote an original short story (of sorts) for class in the last eighteen hours

#boring
#that's what lj is for
#like everything I write, the ending was kind of dull and abrupt
#it was a duel with a zombie snake
#probably too HPish
#have to write the rough draft of the first chapter of a YA novel by 9 AM Wednesday
#Revenge just hit 24k
#there are at least four more chapters
#and three for Lucy
#am starting to feel a little tired of writing
#but in a good way
#just realized I have to read the next novel for other class

Finished Ch 7 of Revenge, aka the Department of Backstory - it's really solidified this as equally a PT AU/alternate canon story. Anyway, time for my unpopular opinion of the day, on family resemblance among the Skywalkers.

Am I seriously the only person who thinks this? )

anghraine: watercolour of jane austen; text: intj (jane austen (was an intj))
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.

My dog can't triangulate.

Well, my mother's dog. But she's twelve and heavy and her bones and heart are troubling her, so she mostly likes to just sleep on my fuzzy rugs. And she's twelve now, and apparently her hearing is going wrong, or something. When we call her, she can't seem to tell what direction the sound is coming from - or what direction any sound's coming from, really. She can't turn around easily, but she has to do it all the time now. :(

Huh. I was browsing Wookieepedia and ended up discovering what that strange creature, the Lucas basher, actually looks like. It turns out that if you (1) criticize Lucas in any way, without (2) acknowledging his merits, you're a basher. Um, okay.

Adding another (non-serial!) one, because, uh, drabble bargains are sacred, and I don't very many will take me up on it anyway.

Drabble meme

Every person who wants to gets to request a drabble from me. In return, you have to post this in your journal and write a drabble for me.

Post all fandoms you're willing to write for. Your friends can pick a relationship, a story arc, a missing scene, or pretty much anything they want, unless the author has previously mentioned that they will not write it. They comment with what they want, and you write drabbles and post it in your LiveJournal.

Fandoms: Austen, Harry Potter, Middle-earth, and Star Wars; you can ask for anything from the canons (er, primary canons) or any of my stories yes, Austen friends, even that one
