Welp, I did it. I signed up for the new Merlin Big Bang. I can see no way in which this carefully laid plan could ever go awry.

Except I haven't actually written for a new fandom since Naruto, because the SPN/DW/Merlin fanwriters are so freaking good that it scared me off writing fanfiction in general? And this will need to be a longfic. And finished. And edited. And I'm gonna need a beta, I've never had a beta, and hopefully they can do Britpicking too? And a draft needs to be finished by a certain point and ahhahaha, I don't know why I do this to myself.

BUT. I have been playing with this idea for ages now, and I'm hopeful that I can execute it well. So we'll see! *Rock Lee pose*

Please tell me someone else has lost their mind and is attempting this? I'd welcome advice from anyone who's ever done a BB before, too. x'D

After Camlann: a Merlin Big Bang

[ profile] aftercamlann presents a new Big Bang challenge for 2014.

Sharpen your pencils, wet your brushes and adjust your seats as we are bringing you to a wholly new adventure!

Sign ups starting on February 1st.

(Anyone want to join me on this insane venture? I've never written for a Big Bang and not for a new fandom since Naruto, so I'm appropriately terrified. 8D;;;)
mildmaythecat: (productivity) start school back up. My books have not arrived. (Panic level: Neutral but increasing.) My Japanese setup looks nerve-wrackingly complicated. (Panic level: Neutral; awaiting further information.) I have not gone to bed before 1 in the morning in over a month, nor have I gotten out of bed (barring morning work shifts) before noon. Tomorrow I shall be dragging myself out of bed to face three hours of math before seven in the morning. (Panic level: Increasing, increasing...)

I Am Not Prepared.

So. For those of you also returning to your respective academic cages, tips for getting back into the swing of things with minimal suffering for all involved? Or just commiseration, I'll accept that as well. x''D

Because everybody is about twelve (which isn't bad when you're also twelve, but when you're a tad older...well). And because half of the inhabitants are pretentious, arrogant little shits who get off on telling people about the problems with their work and like to pretend they're the mature ones.

I suppose it could make for an interesting study. I've been off the site for awhile, and apparently in my absence the old flaming communities have been replaced with militant rule-enforcers (because ffnet likes to pretend it's upholding something resembling quality). Thus I have gotten four reviews on the story I crossposted to ffnet, and three of them have been berating and/or reporting me for breaking the site's 'no chatroom format' rule.

...Really? Do people actually care enough about this shit to bother? It's starting to irk me even though I know it's stupid. :|

TL;DR: How does one go about getting an AO3 account, if I decide any of my stuff's good enough to bother with?

I have managed to get the flu at the most inopportune of times. Have called off work three days in a row and jury's out on whether I'll be able to drag my ass in tomorrow. I'm a wreck. And I can't stop coughing. ;~~;

This has resulted in me being pretty damn behind on schoolwork. And 8,000+ words behind on my NaNo novel. Neither of which I have any energy whatsoever to remedy. *headdesk*

Also the Doctor Who 50th was disappointing. So, you know, if you want to join the Wet Blanket tent I have erected, feel free.

Any flu remedies or updates on your lives would be loved. x)

Shisui will be coming in (guess who as xD) if that makes any difference...

did someone say Uchihas as Team Free Will? )

So...maybe? I live in hope that if I pretend people are interested it might actually motivate me to finish something >.>;;

If any of you lovely people are also fans of the soul-destroying show known as Doctor to me. Because the fall finale has left me dead inside. x'D

I...don't understand.

I don't understand why the tragic backstory of our sweet-Obito-turned-Big-Bad is being dedicated to conversations about pooping.

I don't understand how this emphasizes the tragedy. Or how it pertains to his story. Or hell, how it does anything but further destroy our ability to take Mr. Moon's Eye Plan seriously.

I also don't understand why Zetsu and...whatever the hell Tobi's Mask guy (another Zetsu?) are being so buddy-buddy with Obito. Zetsu's never really acted like this before that I can recall.

I still don't understand how the multiple Zetsus that can apparently be molded onto living bodies (see: Obito) thing works. Or how Obito ended up underground to begin with.

Or, I dunno, what the hell Madara was doing there/how he survived this long/why his zombie body is so much younger than his current one.


Thoughts? Is there a deep meaning to all of this that's going straight over my head?

...and I just got an email from the library I applied to.

Is it terrible that I kind of wanted to stay unemployed for five minutes? x'D

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}

I'm going to be blogging about awesome books. Not the most creative subject, but hey, reading is what I do best and love most, so. Enjoy the inevitable spazzfests and ramblings. xD

EDIT: Okay, I'm adding music in there--each post is also gonna have a musical recommendation that probably won't have anything to do with the book. These things have nothing to do with each other, so why am I combining them? Because I am insane. Enjoy.

Despite basically growing up watching this movie, I still sobbed hysterically. Goddammit. Somebody hold me. ;~;

Stolen from the lovely hiza_chan, as per usual:

1. Go to page 77 (or 7, or just hit pagedown 7 times,) of your current manuscript/WIP.
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written.

excerpt from the itashi itachi-is-a-fallen-angel fic that may or may not be a destiel fic in disguise: )

...I have about twenty things labelled unfinished but at this rate they're never gonna go anywhere. I seem to have lost all drive for writing these days. Dammit. If y'all want to throw prompts at me I'm all ears. ;~~;
