{ I've said too much, I haven't said enough }  
Gosh it's been a bit of a while! I'm not entirely sure where the last three weeks have went to, to be quite honest, but least to say I've not been nearly as busy as I more than likely should have been. My big plans to write-write-write in that whole "no strings attached" kind of way kind of dive bombed itself on me and then I had to drop out of one of my bigbangs so I started feeling sorry for myself until this week, when I finally gave myself a kick up the backside and I think I'm back into the swing of things. YAY!

§ apocabigbang : this would be the one I dropped out of. My idea for this one centered around a Torchwood/Supernatural crossover with the TW verse mirroring the events of the SPN 5.04 verse. We see Britain ravished by the Croatoan virus and a new "Torchwood" set up to deal with the threat of the croates. Ianto gets resurrected by Castiel (who was brought back to be Michael's new vessel because Dean still won't say yes). So, Ianto gets resurrected, then gets captured by this new Torchwood which contains some very familiar faces, not all of whom are happy to see him. They're suspicious of him which leads to his distrust of them and he eventually decides there's nothing for him in this life and says yes and I'm sure you can picture what happens after that. It sounded pretty good in my head. Kind of depressing, but hey, it's an apocalypse, right? Except every time I tried to bring Ianto back to life I just... couldn't. Without getting into this too deeply, I'm kind of wondering if my love affair with Torchwood is well and truely over. I haven't written a proper TW fic since... series two O_O and we all know how long ago that one was. So, well, push came to shove and I decided to cut my loses on the writing of this story because I just couldn't bring myself to write about Torchwood. I don't think I really care about it anymore. This revelation and my consequential dropping out brought on the "feeling sorry for myself" part of the three weeks.

§ help_haiti : the wonderful indiefairy  won my auction for a 1000word piece of fiction from me. I'm trying to make this piece one of my top priorities since she ended up paying £10 for my services ;D so hopefully I'll be getting the piece she requested from me done sooner rather than later. I am of course flailing so hard over the writing of this one because  omgsomeonepaidformyficandomgit'sgoingtosuckwoe  I feel more than a little pressured to make it very awesome, heh.

§ deancastiel  Secret Angels III: So we got our assignments sent out for this one. Very exciting! I was slightly miffed upon first recieving mine because my recepient seems to really like humour/requested humour and well... I'm not really an "on demand humour" kind of gal (and even said as much in my "will not write" section :S). However, I've picked a prompt I like. It's got the potential to be somewhat amusing if nothing else. And there's more than likely going to be alot of porn of one form or another to make up for any dodgy attempts at the lulz. It may end up being all porn, come to think of it. Possibly kind of angsty too if I know what I'm like. But we'll see! ;D

§ sncross_bigbang : not made all that much progress with this one in terms of actual writing. My goal of reaching 5000words this month, as you can guess, failed. But I've done quie a bit of work on the plot side of things so I'm feeling very confident about it on a whole. The idea for this one centers around a Supernatural/Harry Potter crossover, set in the SPN verse with John and Dean on the trail of a werewolf. They get into a spot of bother, Dean gets injured (I'm still toying with just how badly ;D) and ends up being looked after by Snape and Lupin who survived the war in Britain and fled to the states to live out the rest of their lives in peace (ha.). Pairings wise, Snape and Lupin are together. I am however toying with the idea of adding either a bit of Snape/Lupin/John or Lupin/Dean to the mix, but I'm still not completely sold on anything. Hrmmm!

§ spn_j2_bigbang : definitely my most favourite piece to be writing of the lot, hands down. I'm so excited over my idea for this one you've no idea. I'm kind of keeping my plot under wraps for the most part, but I will share that it's a "monster of the week" type story with Dean and Sam picking up on a case where a certain number of youths go missing every so many years. They decide to investigate and along with Castiel, head off to solve the case. Things... don't go quite to plan. They all end up in one of those life-or-death type situations with a bit of fuck-or-die (Dean/Castiel) thrown in for good measure. They may or may not all get out of it in one piece. Mu-hahahaha... heh. Just kidding. They all survive. Maybe ;D This story promises to be be gloriously dramatic either way, if I have any say over it, which I do, so there.
Those of you crazy people doing any of the challenges I made you sign up for am, how goes your writing? Tell me all! Your dramas, your triumphs, any and all things going on with your fic challenges.

Everyone else, how are you guys?! XD

You and your crazy amount of writing.

and please hun, don't pressure yourself too much with the Haiti fic for me, seriously, anything you write I will love. Just ignore the money aspect of it. ::glomps::

and my spn_j2_bigbang fic is....exactly where I left it before sending it to you to read over. I have lots of ideas, and it's pretty much all plotted out, I just suck at the writing it part.
Campaspe: Supernatural \\ Castiel; the endcs_whitewolf on February 9th, 2010 09:38 pm (UTC)
UGH you're telling me! XD

lol, I can't help it! I started writing it and then signed off then went back and was all "OMG I HATE EVERTHING. OMG SHE'S GOING TO HATE EVERYTHING" XD it seems to be a repeating pattern! However, I shall take some deep breathes and try to bear that in mind ;D ::snugs::

asdfghjkl why?! Do you know how desperate I am for more?! XD heh. I'm glad you're still plodding at it, even if it's just the plotting you're getting done ;D

You with your vast and towering amount of things to write. It's crazy and impressive! The only one I'm doing is the apocabigbang and I have a very rough rough draft all done for that. Though your spn_j2_bigbang sounds awesome in even secret suggestive form.

But I had the same problem as you a while ago when I realised I didn't want to write Torchwood any more. I just had no enthusiasm or interest in the characters or their lives any more. I think it's the first time I've left a fandom entirely.
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Ianto; crying in the raincs_whitewolf on February 9th, 2010 09:43 pm (UTC)
Crazy, yes. Impressive? We'll see how many of them I complete ;D lol

I'm glad you managed to get your apocabigbang together, it sounded like a really awesome idea :D and I really can't wait to read it!

Am slightly gutted I never got you to sign up for spn_j2_bigbang! haha. I'm very excited for my idea :) I just don't want to jinx it by saying too much about it, but once I get a sizable chunk of it done it'll probably end up being all I talk about, details and all! XD

Man, it's kind of depressing, ya? :( I'm very sad to see it go, because even though it wasn't my first fandom or anything, it's the first one I made the very best of friends in and even though we've all drifted away from TW (and thankfully most if not all of us into Supernatural now (I probably dragged a few kicking and screaming but they're appreciating it all now, honest!)) it kind of feels terrible to just be leaving it. WOE!

I can't bear the thought of getting rid of my icons though XD

you seem to be as crazy as me, so glad I'm not the only one addicted to big bangs and challenges. I'm doing the apocabigbang, the jossverse_bb, the pictures2words big bang & the Secret Angels challenge. Luckily I finished my help_haiti fic or else I think my head would be about ready to explode.

I also totally get what you mean about Torchwood. The fic I had to write for help_haiti was a torchwood one and I just couldn't get any enthusiasm behind it. I have barely visited the torchwood comms since the end of season 2 let alone written anything for it. I've just moved on to greener pastures which may or may not have a certain blue eyed angel lurking in it.

Oh and I look forward to reading your secret angels fic *waggles eyebrows*

::high fives::

Oh it feels good to not be the only crazy person around here! ...do you think it says something that we're both from Glasgow though? ::shifty eyes::

What's your plan for apocabigbang? I love hearing what everyone has come up with :D

Dude! You're doing the Secret Angels thing? That is too awesome. Cannot wait to read yours too! if you need to rant/bounce ideas/whatever just hollar :)

I'm so glad indiefairy asked me to write Supernatural fic for her (I said on the initial post I'd write either TW or SPN). I can't imagine having to churn out fic for a fandom I'm not really all that into anymore. And for the help_haiti it's not like I'd have been able to say "well... I can't actually write what I said I would..." lol. What did you end up writing about?

I think we can both take solace in the fact that even though our blue-eyed Welshman passed on, we've been taken in by that certain blue-eyed angel instead ;D

Yay you are alive!! Hehe! *hugs* ;)

So this is what you call not busy!! I'd not like to see ya when you are busy!

The TW thing, I keep thinking I want to write again, I really do have the urge to write for TW (still thankfully) but I just look at the fandom and dispair! I think cause we all met through TW I'm gonna stay with the LJcoms, but i don't read fic from there nor much in the way of commenting there any more! It's sad really! *hugs*

Wow lot of SPN fic going on there!! I stand by what I say, I'll cheerlead ya along if ya need it. :D

My writing, I seem to be able to be given a prompt, pick up a pen and just write at the moment! I am hopefully posting my first spn fic soon....hopefully. ;)
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Ianto; stopwatch! XDcs_whitewolf on February 9th, 2010 09:54 pm (UTC)
XD it was a bit hit-or-miss there for a moment but yes, I am indeed alive! hehe

Well... yes. Busy on the writing-to-write front not so much on the actual writing part? My usual, you know! ;D

Yeah. It's so sad to feel like you're saying goodbye to your fandom. it was definitely the one that brought us all together and there's something about that which makes me want to keep it around. But at the same time it just... doesn't do anything for me anymore. :( at least I've still got my icons! hehe

Cheerleaders are always needed! XD I'm glad your own writing is going so well. What's your SPN fic about? Details, woman!

My,my my. Aren't we just full of interesting and thoughtful ideas. Sorry to hear about your TW love going down the tubes. I was really looking forward to seeing what you could with Ianto and Castiel but forcing yourself to write something you don't care about is stupid.

Oh well. I look forwarding to reading your contributions when you get to posting them. Good luck!
Campaspe: Supernatural \\ Castiel; shadowcs_whitewolf on February 10th, 2010 08:15 pm (UTC)
Heh, glad you think so! Hopefully they'll all be interesting to read too XD

I do still really like my idea for that fic, and I won't say that I'll never write it. I just don't think that now is the right time for it. I'm too far removed from Torchwood right now to care about the characters, and I just don't think you can write a good fic if you don't care abou tthe characters you're writing about, you know? Maybe one day I'll bring the goodness of Ianto&Castiel to an LJ near you! heh.

Thanks, hun! Hope you're not disappointed when they come out :)
Lokiloki_dip on February 11th, 2010 09:51 am (UTC)
Hello you!

Woah, that is crazy writing. I did apocabigbang and did do my crazy small, no-one-has-heard-of-it-and-so-no-one-will-read-it-but-I-don't-care-because-my-fandom-is-so-shiny fandom. Also known as O5 for being a lower mouthful. I'm also trying to get on with my sncross_bigbang fic which is a Medical Investigation crossover. I'll do the DA one later on.

Mainly though, the current focus is the uni research project 10 000 words. Current standing 8,500. WIN. And it might get me a paper. WIN.

RE: Torchwood, if you're not feeling it? Then it's not worth it. Fanfic isn't a paid job, it's fun and if it's not fun...
Campaspe: Supernatural \\ Castiel; undressedcs_whitewolf on February 11th, 2010 06:58 pm (UTC)
Hello there!

You're telling me. I seem to be missing the angel on my shoulder that's supposed to warn me against the little devil telling me to sign up for everything going ;D

XD I've definitely never heard of this O5 but I'm rooting for you having written it for yourself more than everyone else :) it's the best way to write I've found!

I also don't know about Medical Investigation, what's this xover going to be about?

that is epic! omg. Again you and your productivity make me do the ":O" face and want to strive that wee bit harder, heh. Go you! I assume this "getting a paper" thing is very good, yes?

Word on that! I'm all kind of sad over it, but you're right. Ain't no point if it's just going to stress me out!

How've you been? Outwith all the crazy work/uni/writing stuff? ;D

Hey sweetie! Thank you so much for my birthday cupcake. That was sweet (well, virtually sweet, but you know what I mean). Glad to hear that you're doing well and writing. You know, it's funny, I kind of understand what you mean about Torchwood. I loved the show but I find that I can't really even read the fic, if that makes any sense. I just have no interest now. Bleh...

I've been working crazy hours (boo), wrote a help_haiti fic in my new shiny fandom, Criminal Minds (I have no idea why I suddenly became so enthralled with this show, but I have), and am planning to do some Holmes writing too. I'm taking a week and a half off (yay!) and plan to catch up on my deprived sleep.

Other than that, I'm doing okay. Glad to see you back and posting. *happy dance*
Campaspe: RP \\ Jensen; hehcs_whitewolf on February 14th, 2010 07:11 pm (UTC)
heh, you're welcome! :)

Yeah. I miss the fandom we had back when series one had aired and we had to wait the year between that and series two. Everyone was so nice and the fic was good and it was kind of perfect. I've loved both series two and three, but the fandom has gone downhill since and come series three I couldn't even bring myself to delve into it anymore. D: it's sad to say goodbye, but well. ::sniffle::

I'll need to put Criminal Minds onto my "to watch" list ;D heh. I've gotten into a new one called White Collar, which I was thinking of dabbling in but am too chicken right now (not least because of my workload, hah). what's your shiny new fandom about? I may already know this but my brain is on fail with remembering things.

WHOOP! enjoy your time off :) there's nothing better than knowing you have a week in which to do absolutely nothing but sleep and frot out with whatever makes you happy. heh
