1) I am dithering about Yuletide. I'm not convinced about my ability to be inspired enough to write anything to completion in a month. I don't even know what fandoms I'd request or offer. Mostly because I haven't looked at the list yet.

2) I made mushroom pasta for dinner. This makes me exceedingly content.

3) I considered going home for Thanksgiving, but before I could make a decision, the really good deal on tickets sold out, and I'm reluctant to pay $350+ for 48 hours home. Especially when I'm going home in a month and three days. I feel bad I got my mom's hopes up, but she said she totally understands and would have done the same thing. But I am Very Good at guilt. On the positive side, I don't have to deal with TSA four times in less than 2 weeks.

But I'm seeing who else in the area is a Thanksgiving orphan and semi-hosting a Thing. Although I'm itching to make a beef tenderloin or leg of lamb instead of a turkey.

4) A friend of mine showed me a video last night that has since become the craziest earworm EVER: The Complete History of the Soviet Union, Through the Eyes of a Humble Worker, Arranged to the Melody of Tetris

YOU'RE WELCOME.

5) Another reason I'm dithering on Yuletide is that I should probably spend my energy generating ideas and the basic plot structures for this tenday I'm writing. I haven't had to work my gamewriting chops this hard since Centauri, and in terms of writing, I'd say Synchronicity (our tentative title) is a level above at least. Oh god, this thing is going to be crazy. Hopefully also awesome. If we're really good, it'll be crazy awesome.

6) This is having no mention of the crazy 'gateverse AU that popped into my head today and that [livejournal.com profile] abyssinia4077 has, of course, totally encouraged. I blame Darker than BLACK, actually.

Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] havocthecat, because my thesis is eating my brain and if I don't do something about it, the crack fic is going to be beyond Epic.

The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I am familiar with AND give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU, superhero AU, What-If-X-Happened etc.). I will then explain what story from that fandom I would write for that AU.

Re: My Brain Is At It Again

Daniel Jackson descending into the City of Glie and being Very Confused by the Haibane, who also have no idea what quite to make of him. Y/N?

Damn Ancients.

Thought:

Leverage crew vs. Carmen Sandiego. Or Leverage + Carmen Sandiego.

Crazy, or crazy awesome?

(I think the white chocolate chai tea does strange things to my brain.)

-Crack fic has broken 10k words. I haven't even finished Part I (really, Act I) yet. I'm vaguely worried about how the hell I'm gonna post this thing. Vaguely. I'll figure something out when the time comes. (Er, sorry if this seems like all I'm talking about lately. It's just seriously eaten my brain.)

-Speaking of brain nomming, I've apparently found myself writing a SIK game based on the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 'verse. Why, I don't know. But I made a fusion table! Hurray for d20s.

-We will NOT speak of how my character for my friend's Persona-based tabletop seems to be influencing the crack fic development. She is accomplishing this mostly by looking sad and pathetic at me in my head and why can I not resist a character's puppy-eyes?!

I swear there is something wrong with me.

-We will also not speak of how the Atlantis d20 rulebook has stalled. All I need is flavor text on NPCs, an intro, and damn vehicle stats. It's really just grunge work that I keep being a lazy ass about and putting off.

-I should really buy my Chicago con tickets at some point. And I guess autograph tickets so I can get the Core d20 book signed, because I am a dork.

-Leverage makes me happy. We just finished s1 last night. We're savoring it, like a fine wine. Okay, actually, we're well aware that once we catch up, getting our fix is going to be less immediate.

Someone more familiar with the Marvel comics 'verse help me before I do something crazy like make John Sheppard a Captain America analogue.

On the other hand, I'm pretty sure Charlie O'Neill lives in this 'verse.

Crack fic fusion has gone and developed sections. And I think the Epic dial got broken somewhere around "11".

It's been a long time since a story has eaten my brain in such a way.

Some observations on fusion fic and the writing thereof )

Quick Poll:

If I gave you the phrase "Elizabeth Weir, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.", how wrong am I?

I think [livejournal.com profile] holdouttrout can attest, via evidence from today, that I Should Not Be Allowed to give hypothetical examples. Especially hypothetical examples to describe fiction genres, like crossover and fusion.

In other news, DELICIOUS, DELICIOUS CRACK FUSION IDEA. *cackles madly*
