You know those days when you're simultaneously so laidback you wouldn't notice a nuclear explosion and so wired that the smallest thing has you jumping? Yeah. Yeah. Not the best thing when you're driving.

God, I'm so tired of school. Six more weeks...but with senior project over (THANK GOD) it feels like school should be over now. I'm trying to figure out if I can still pass Chem if I do nothing but labs the rest of the semester, because I have no idea what's going on. At all. Of course, that means I don't understand the labs, either, but they're slightly easier to BS than the actual assignments. Which we never have, except for today, apparently!

All I want to do is write. Except I don't really want to work on my novel, either. I suppose I could work on the SGA pirate AU plot-kernel. (It's, like...timeline? What timeline? It's awesome, and from poor put-upon Lorne's POV. "They'd given up having the coin toss and just had Lorne pretend to be the poor shipwrecked passenger every time, since Cadman claimed the Marines needed her and McKay was not only a bad liar, but claimed that he had to be back on the Atlantis in case something went wrong with the tracking device.")

I did my job shadow for FCI today, up at Central...with the AFROTC Detachment, there. Which mostly involved me following around various cadre members and soaking up information and sadly coming to the conclusion that I could not phrase various research questions in such a way that they would actually make sense outside of context, but also involved me talking to cadets.

Cadet 1: So, why are you interested in the Air Force?
Me: Oh...you know, actually, probably judicious watching of Stargate.
Cadet 2: I LOVE Stargate! I totally want to get into deep space radar telemetry! *goofy grin*
Me: *dies*

Cadet 3: So, do you know Stargate?
Me: Yes.
Cadet 3: Daniel Jackson is totally my hero. It's probably the reason I'm a language major. I'm also learning Dutch.
Me: *dies again*

You know, I wonder how many people the Air Force has actually recruited by use of Stargate. Because, seriously...now that would be interesting.

We were discussing how sometimes we have plot bunnies that we don't so much want to write, but we want to READ. You have those? Let's talk about them!

Pick 3 plot bunnies for stories you'd really like to READ, but don't have time to write, or don't feel qualified to write.


Farscape, Stargate Atlantis, Numb3rs )

I keep reading really good Stargate genderfuck, like Joan Sheppard and Cammie Mitchell and Dani Jackson and Jane Sheppard, which is probably what resulted in Ani Skywalker, but for some reason has me thinking of CSI:NY genderfuck. Like girl!Mac. Who'd still go by Mac, but would be -- scarier, maybe. And Stella holds girls nights out. Girl!Mac -- not as good an impression as my two favorite characters.

Such as, of course, Dani Messer and Donna Flack. Well, not Dani Messer and Donna Flack together, but you know what I mean. Donna Flack -- hella scary, because she snaps her gum and bats her eyes and flips her hair and flashes her gun and her badge and her cleavage all at once and keeps tackling people who think it'll be easy to run from a chick. And, you know, she's tall and kind of lanky, so she tends to loom over people.

And Dani Messer! Who's snarky but who tends to shrink into the background -- and she bites her nails. *nods firmly* And tends to get underestimated. And who was Sonny Sassone's girlfriend, back in the day, and Louie was dangerously overprotective of her and Dani had a rebellious phase in which Sonny was the culmination. And when she sees Sonny again (do Danny and Sonny meet in "Run Silent, Run Deep"), she shocks everyone by socking him in the jaw. (Also, if Bardverse Danny was Dani: two words: Mafia princess. Can you imagine?)

Cut for original fic rambling along the same lines. )

I really want to write SGA or Firefly. Obviously this will end badly.

See, it's a good thing my original novel is sci-fi. That way my sci-fi urges are distracted to the purpose they're supposed to be put to.

Granted, I should be, uh, writing Star Wars right now too, but there we go.

*beats SGA/CSI:NY plotbunny down* Sumner's a Marine! Mac was a Marine! Mac could, theoretically, get invited to his funeral! And meet another old Marine buddy, who's really suspicious about all the deaths coming out of Cheyenne Mountain and wants to recruit Mac to help figure it out! And there could be Sheppard/Taylor staredowns while Rodney shrieks in the background!

ETA: Or SGA/Firefly! They need a pilot! Sheppard's a pilot!

Okay, stop me now.

*stares*

God, SGA really does have the best artists ever. GUH.

Also, I wrote, like, five pages of pure fluff for my novel. I think I need to go write something less fluffy now. *haunted*

(using my sg-1 icon in lieu of having an sga one. oh, lj.)
bedlamsbard: star wars rebels: hera peering around a corner (usaf cam (dragonlady981))
I was -- randomly wikipediaing -- and ran across the list of SGA supporting characters, one of whom is, of course, Colonel Sumner, who's played by Robert Patrick. He looked very familiar.

Turns out he plays Colonel Tom Ryan in The Unit.

Personally, I think this is hilarious.

Okay, so a while back there was 38 Kisses. And then there was 38 Kisses: The Podfic. And after that there was another John/Rodney kissing fest thing in someone's comments -- not the original poster's -- and there was one ficlet that I really liked, but I cannot find the second set of John/Rodney kisses. And I think I may have linked [livejournal.com profile] limmenel to it, but I don't remember for sure, and it would have been in summer sometime, which yeah, narrows it down a lot. And I'm desperate here, y'all. Whoever finds it for me gets a ficlet of their choice.

Pretty please?

ETA: Oh, wait, never mind, I found it. Gee, smart, Bedlam.

Um, does anyone want fic anyway? While I, um, don't work on my novel?

I really don't know what it says about me that I keep confusing Obi-Wan and Yoda joining with the Force and becoming Force ghosts with Ascension. I mean, I really, really don't know.

On the other hand, hey, interesting crossovers!

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] traveller: When you see this, post a little weensy excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

This could take a while. I think the folder I was writing in before I went to Brown is upstairs. Also, by WIP, I mean anything that has words and a plot-like-thing. Also note that a lot of these have shown up here before. *cough* )

Also, after seeing "Born Under a Bad Sign", I reiterate: Sam and Dean are so totally Anakin and Obi-Wan. They've even got the murderous rage blackouts and the inability to kill each other!

Just for [livejournal.com profile] limmenel, because I had to do something while episodes of Eureka (absolutely awesome, by the way) were buffering.

Lennox heard them before he saw them. )

Visiting Connecticut College tomorrow. Should be interesting, hopefully!
bedlamsbard: star wars rebels: hera peering around a corner (Default)
So the college fair was today and I went, obviously, and talked to a lot of schools that I was interested in: Davidson College (NC), Embry-Riddle Aeronautical College (FL and AZ), the Air Force Academy about AFROTC, Scripps College (CA), Wellesley College (MA), and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (dude, if you need me to tell you what state that's in...). I didn't get to talk to a couple of schools I'm interested in -- Stanford University, Dickinson College, and Duke University -- but I don't mind particularly. It was interesting.

I have a lot of journal entries because I've had two days where class starts at eleven, so I get, like, an extra hour and a half of writing.

Also, Natalie Babbitt (author of Tuck Everlasting, among other things) came to talk to us today. Suddenly I love Brown, and I've never even read any of her books.

Why are they always outside my door? *shakes head* The good thing about college: no one to tell you to eat something other than cereal for dinner.

Also, I got my AP scores back! U.S. History: 4. Calculus AB: 4 (amazing! I thought I'd get, like, a 2, especially considering all the crap that went down during the test). English Language and Composition: 5. YAY.

Guys, this one came to me in a dream. I'm not even kidding. Thus Sam Carter and the bird, which, oh my God, WTF.

Happy Fourth of July, y'all!

I promised myself that if I survived the city (no, seriously, I wasn't kidding), I'd come back and do writing exercises, so you get music recs and fic. Bear in mind that I'm on my laptop, and the majority of my music is at home on my desktop, so this is not, perhaps, what I'd give you if I was at home. Links are to lyrics, if there are any.

Music! And stories! I wanted to do seven, but I could only think of five songs I'm really into right now! This is a crazy overuse of exclamation points! )

Also, [livejournal.com profile] limmenel, you'll love this: there's something kind of cool about overhearing a guy on his cell phone say, with a fairly strong New England accent, "Yeah, yeah, like half my guys are in jail right now. You hear from Bobby? Is he there?" Also, I have been reasonably well informed that the Mafia has a fairly strong presence in Providence. (This is not even considering the biker gangs, which is...okay, dude, why biker gangs?)

Awesome.
