{ this one goes out to the one I love }  

Sharing is Caring: for one week, I recommend/share...

Day one - a song
Day two - a picture
Day three - a book/ebook/fanfic
Day four - a site
Day five - a youtube clip
Day six - a quote
Day seven - whatever tickles your fancy

A site: [info]apocabigbang

The challenge is for writers to create a 10 000 word (or longer) novella
for het, gen, or slash in whatever fandom or crossover they so desire.
The catch? Your story has to revolve around the end of the world.
This can mean aliens, zombies or just a big ol' explosion!


- why this site? Well it's sort kind of relevant to my interests you see, as not moments after discovering it I found myself accidently on purpose signing myself up for it. Not entirely sure how that happened, honest! But it really is an awesome idea and I think you guys should all sign up too because it'll be FUN in an angsty-end-of-the-world kind of way. Go on! I know you want to ;D

§ [info]tw_bigbang:  I got an email today letting me know that I got the "big bang thumbs up", which I guess means I passed the rough draft test and with the artist claims going up tomorrow there really is no turning back now! ::flail:: I keep switching between being really very psyched over this fact and terrified that my fic'll be the only one left unclaimed or something XD fingers crossed it won't be quite that bad though! heh.

§ Renegade Angels: the stories for the [ deancastiel Renegade Angels exchange ] were finally revealed and I can now let ya'll know just which story I have been fretting over for weeks now XD

Maybe an Angel [Dean/Castiel | PG-13 | 6679words | wherein Castiel is forced to "possess" Dean and as time passes they start to merge.]
- I'm at that stage now, having let it simmer out there with strangers reading and reviewing it, where I actually kind of like it again. Or rather, I really like the idea of it. I'm not sure I could have written it any better at the time, though I really wish I could have, if that makes any kind of sense? I wish I'd been able to get myself out the rut I found myself in in regards to the tense I used, but no matter how many times I started over or changed it, it always reverted back to the present till I finally got the hint and gave in. I've since discovered though that I've used the same tense in most of my Supernatural fics and that kind of surprised me, sort of like it's my default tense for the show or something. I may need to work on that now that I've realised it.

§ real life: went to see Dorian Gray at the theatre last night with Stacey and Claire. It was interesting... it was a "moden day" interpretation with lots of expressive dancing but no talking and had way more simulated gay sex than I think anyone was expecting O_O... still, that at least, kept things entertaining! You can get a little taster of what it was like [ here on youtube ]!

I'm so tempted by the ApocaBigBang, apocalypses are awesome!

It was "interesting". I don't think I'd have gone to see it if I knew it was going to be the way it was. I'd have rather gone to see the movie for the price I payed, you know? But at the same time, it was alright- like I didn't want to leave the theatre or anything half-way through it. I guess it depends on your taste- check out the video I linked, it's pretty much like that the entire way through! So if you like then, then you'll like seeing it live :)

I'd never get it finished, but that big bang looks so much fun!

It's *only* 10,000words, no biggie! ;D ::tempts::

Tiny, really... :S

There is also the small matter of picking a fandom (or crossover, which might be fun, actually) and a plot of some description.

I was thinking of doing a Torchwood/Supernatural crossover (Torchwood centric) but haven't much clue on a plot yet! ...I should probably have thought of one before signing up, but whatever XD

...got any thoughts? ;D

That sounds promising. You can't go wrong with Torchwood and Supernatural. (I drifted out of the latter in series four, but I'm catching up again now.)

I'm sure the plot will turn up when you have to start writing! Apart from that, not a clue.
