it's gettin' critical  
cut for the not-fun kind of flailing about school, nerding out over computer specs, and ranting about course required software. You're welcome. )

The bakery story is now at around 4100 words and I've started to hate it. This is why I don't write long things. I know where it needs to go, and I know the steps I need to hit along the way, but I can't seem to get it there, and it's extremely frustrating. I'd try to work on something else for a while, but I know myself well enough to know that I'd never go back to it.

I don't know what to do. Stupid writing. Why so hard? (That's what she said)

I also have ridiculous cracked out ideas for Inception fic. Including, I will admit, an AU where they are wedding planners. Apparently my brain has decided to rot itself with crack and fluff. Like I wasn't doing a good enough job at rotting it with terrible reality television or something.

The other Inception idea is... still AU, but much more complicated and way less fun. They turn a profit by putting people in video game scenarios of their (the clients) choosing! Rich people paying an obscene amount of money to dream themselves into a live action version of their favorite game! Mostly it would center around Arthur being a badass shooting people and zombies and Eames being all: ♥___♥ You were a little left of center on that one, darling. And Arthur being all: I'm going to let them eat you, I swear to god. And Eames being all: ♥___♥ Nonsense, you like to use that weapon far too much. And Ariadne being all: Which weapon is that? While looking at his pants, because I can't resist a dick joke. Then they have to solve a RL assassination plot while in a video game.

Possibly I should study video games for that one? Or I should just forget it all together, because, omg hard.

Probably, what I am going to do now is take a nap.

I'd like to tell you that I'm ready for whatever's coming...  
I had ever intention of finishing this damn bakery thing by tonight, but then I got distracted by, well, all the Eames/Arthur fic on the internet. In my defense, it is very distracting.

Also, this stupid bakery thing is almost 3000 words. And, much to my horror, not even reaching a middle. WHAT IS YOUR DEAL, RANDOM BAKERY FIC? This story is like the one night stand you never meant to see again who just keeps calling. It was supposed to be quick and fun and over. Now it has, like, feelings. WTF.

Proof that I am not just pulling your chain about its existence:
cut the people who are frankly, tired of hearing about this Glee business from me. )

Now, back to Arthur and Eames writing. :| I liked the first answer better.

mostly I just wanted to use this icon  
So far, other than the previously mentioned fic, Puck/Kurt fic has disappointed me on a large and epic scale. I was going to do a whole post about Things That Are Bad And You Shouldn't Do In Fic Ever, Seriously, Not Ever, and then I realized that that's way too douchey even for me.

Also, it would be really, really long, and I am really, really lazy.

Um. It's mostly the douchey thing though, really.

But it does beg the question: what do you qualify as a Thing That Is Bad and Should Never Do In Fic Ever?

pop quiz  
so, um, yeah.

My writing is like:

a) the way I eat a sandwich - unconventional, not like most people, incorrect. Going around and around and getting the crust out of the way first, saving the insides, the best, for last.

b) a sigh - a deep breath in, 'til your lungs fill up, inch by inch, and a pause; a second of not breathing, and then letting it all out in a whoosh.

c) a picture - enough to remind you of a feeling, a thought, a memory, a person. It's flat, and out of focus, and there's a finger in the corner. But it's that feeling of then, really, that matters.

d) none of the above.

Hmmm I think I pick D, when I'm being honest. Wish I could really pick any of the others.

Maybe now I can stop thinking about writing and actually do it. ::crosses fingers::

so many people just gave up  
So, everyone has little things they fall for every time in fic. Yes, even you. Admit it. Everyone has a list of things that'll make them flail about and lean just a little closer to the monitor and shiver, in the right ways.

My list?
1) roadtrip fic - because it's all about the journey.
2) pining - wanting something, whether it's right in front of you or 1,00- miles away. There's something about longing that's... lonely and hard and wonderful, when it finally comes around.
3) wall!shoving/sex/man handling - it's the strength of the feeling, that you get to the point where you just snap and shove and kiss. Hot.
4) neck touching - there's something about the little movements, the slight touches that can be innocent, but usually aren't.

There are other things, but it's late and I'm sleepy and really, I'd like to hear yours.

No, really.

Tell me.
