So fandom snowflake pretty much went out the window when classes started up again.

I'm taking a poetry workshop class--the advanced poetry workshop class at this school, which means my classmates all had to take two previous ones before getting to this one, which means I am at a loss to explain how I seem to be the most critical person in it.

I'm not actually that critical a person, I don't think (if I've ever beta-ed for you, you know that--I mostly just like to bounce up and down and talk about how things are great), but I don't see the point of a workshop that's just a mutual ego-stroking. If you think your work is perfect, or that you have nothing to learn from hearing other perspectives, why take a workshop at all? But they all seem afraid to make any comments at all because "Everybody is developing their own voice." Which is true, to a point, but ultimately not at all the issue, you know?

So we'll see how that goes. I got into a fight with this entitled jerk my first day that culminated in him telling me that I was punishing every writer who took their education seriously, which was, um, interesting. I asked him, "How am I punishing anyone by having opinions about my own education?" which shut him up pretty fucking fast. Idk, man. I'll be super glad to graduate, when that finally happens.

I have watched and have lots of feelings about both Orphan Black and Inside Llewyn Davis (which has a soundtrack to die for) so if you ever want to chat about either of those, you know where to find me. Some tumblr-er has compiled a Ryan Ross/Dan Keyes manifesto here, and while I think this person and I might disagree fundementally about what some of the dynamics of that relationship would look like, based on their commentary, there's some really delightful, squee-worthy stuff in there that I had never seen before.

Anyway, things are good-but-busy here, hope everything's great with you all, I'll try to get into a better rhythm of being in touch around here soon! <3

I wrote another Ryan&Spencer ficlet. Are you shocked? Tell me you're shocked.

wander through - 1003 words - Ryan and Spencer and thinking some thoughts and violence via cat (so tempting, right?)

Finals are almost over, the holidays will end before too long, it looks like I'll actually be able to graduate come spring, I am feeling much more hopeful than that ficlet suggests. Just a week or two of doom, and then I can relax.

<3 you all, hope you are well.

I meant to make this post last night, but then my roommate decided to say something that kind of fucked with my head, and I freaked out a little, so nothing really happened after that. This was originally conceived as a happy-things post, though, so let's start there.

Ryan Ross has posted two more songs! They're here, and they're kind of gorgeous? I mean, I've always been intrigued by Ryan's lyrics, but it feels like he's found his voice musically now, too--you can still hear his influences, but they're combined in really interesting ways. Plus, these feel really heartfelt, and basically I'm super excited to see what else he's got in store for us. <3

I couldn't resist writing a little ficlet after hearing Lonely Moonlight, because, well, you've heard it right? then you must understand. It's here:a younger heart, because I totally wouldn't put it past Ryan Ross to write lyrics that are meant to be read as metaphorical, but are totally literally true.

I haven't signed up for any holiday exchanges this year, which I feel kind of awful about, because I've just been getting into the swing of those these past few years, but I was having so much trouble finding the time to sign up for them, I could only imagine trying to find the time to write the things would have been a nightmare. I'm doing my senior seminar this semester, since I'm (theoretically) graduating in the spring, and between that and the news-editing-the-college-paper thing, I'm doing a lot of writing all on my own, these days, and it's just the wrong year.

It's Halloween tomorrow, which means The Holiday Season is now upon us. It's inescapable. I hate the holidays, in the way where now and then the days themselves are quite nice, but there's such a pressure about making them nice, and seeing people, and having people to see, and getting things done, it all stresses me out. Halloween may even be the worst of all.

I'm being Mouse Cat tomorrow, like I said in my gushy-about-Noel-Fielding post a few weeks back, largely because I get to wear a really comfy hat and a little face paint and that is it. I've been told I seem like the type to get really into Halloween costumes, but while I do like to dress up all the time in day to day life, I don't like people or holidays telling me what to do.

I have been going back and forth over whether I want to offer more Ryan-Ross-related prompts, because I'm definitely in a Ryan-Ross-flavored mood lately, but I'm not sure the demand is there? In any case, I'll totally write more ficlets, the last batch was lots of fun.

Ryan Ross!

Ryan Ross has new music!

I am almost certain that anyone who follows me and also cares about this development already knows, but just in case here it is.

In honor of this, you guys should totally prompt me Ryan-Ross-involving prompts, which I will respond to with ficlets of indeterminate length.

:D :D :D

Hi guys! How have you been?

I have been wicked multi-fannish, myself, and also weirdly prolific, at least by my standards.

quick writing recap:

For one thing, it was no_tags, so I wrote Hot Tom and the maybe-date, which, yes, is a very silly name, but it is a fic about Empires in which Sean is a hipster baker, so I felt a little silliness was justified.

Then [personal profile] octette guessed which one was mine, so I offered to write her a ficlet and she wanted one about Ryan Ross, which, you know, is totally something I can do, so I wrote Let's begin at the beginning (we're lovers and we're losers), which is chock-full of a lot of things I've been thinking about but haven't known how to fit into an actual, story-shaped story.

I've also been writing ficlets for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., here, here and here about Fitz and Simmons, and there's something really satisfying about writing for a big fandom now and then, since they're easily the most popular thing I've ever written. I love my older fandoms and crack pairings as much as I ever did, but this has been fun, too. Here's hoping future episodes will have lots of those two characters being awesome.

[personal profile] octette mentioned, the other day, that it'd be cool to have a 'revisiting old fandoms' fic fest, and I've got to say, I'm really in the right mood for something like that. I've got three main WiPs in working on right now, and while one is bandom (a really fun idea, I'm pretty enamored), the other two are for Gilmore Girls and Harry Potter respectively.

I'm in major throwback mode, is the point. Also, if anyone wants to talk about either of those, I'm feeling pretty chatty.

I'm not sure if this productivity is going to keep up after this weekend ends--we've got an issue of my college paper (where I'm now the news editor, how the fuck did that happen?) next week, and after that I'm planning a trip down to see all my Boston people, but I hope so. I'm going to try, anyway.

How are you guys all doing? What are you up to? It occurs to me, looking back over that list, that I write a lot of gen fic. Idk what that says about me. Anyway, hoping things are good, xo

I did my yuletide noms the other day!

my nominations: Newsroom, Swordspoint, The Place Beyond The Pines and the Casson Family )

More immediately, I'm also doing no_tags this week. My prompt is spectacular, y'all. And just to get back into the swing of bandom, I got all kinds of weirdly tempted the other day to read Keltie's book. Luckily, there were plenty of nice people on twitter to remind me that I don't actually want to do that. Here, have a picture of Ryan Ross instead:

anyone want to ask me weird and potentially intrusive questions? I have snatched a meme off of tumblr for just that purpose!
