And There's Another Year Gone By...

...without any kind of post from me.

Hello internet! I en't dead.

So, what new and fandomish with me?

I'm watching (which is kind of shocking, actually) and enjoying Sleepy Hollow. I rather adore Ichabod -- I like a fellow out of time who manages to be displaced without also appearing stupid (this is my favorite way for Steve Rogers to be handled too. It burns my cookies when he's written as an idiot who can't be taught to use a toaster, but I digress.) Abby is strong and smart, and not too Scully-ish. I rather like her. So far I don't have a 'ship, and I find myself at peace with that.

Also, why has no one noticed that Deputy Pez Dispenser is no longer in the morgue? I ask you.

I'm also watching SHIELD, and I gotta say I don't love it as much as I want to. It still has that new series smell, you know? Like it hasn't figured itself out yet. I think Ward is a bag of dicks, and have yet to understand what it is we're meant to find endearing about him. Skye has potential, but she feels a little over-done -- like they are trying to hard to fit her into the quirky-strong-kick-ass type that Joss does (and generally does well). Fitz and Simmons are pretty cute (if not also a little over-played)... I dunno. I'm still watching it. But I wanted to fall in love, and instead I'm still going out on coffee dates, while secretly flirting with the genre show next door.

So. Coulson is missing parts of his memory, keeps saying he was in "a magical place" and can no longer field strip a weapon. Who wants to lay odds that he is not in his original body? Double points if Asgard was involved.

In other news, I'm finally going through and watching NCIS from start to finish (if by "start" you mean "Season 3," which I do, in this case.) We're on Season 8 and I'm starting to see some things I hadn't seen before. It helps having it all in order. Context and all.

NaNoWriMo approacheth, and I'm scrambling to figure out WT-bloody-F to write. I'm leaning heavily towards Harry Potter, though Avengers is not out of the question.

It's the 15th of October and I don't have a story. Hell, I haven't even narrowed it down to a fandom. No need to panic, right?

I'm doing NaNo as well! The second and third act of one screenplay, and the first of another. Plus my Secret Santa gift.

See, you have a plan. Plans are helpful things.

(I do this every year. And every year I manage to pull off 50K worth of words. Often not terribly good words, mind you. But words.)

Yeah, they are :). This is my third time. I'm discovering that NaNo is useful, as long as you use it towards your own ends.

nod nod nod -- oh definitely. If you aren't writing what you want to be writing, what's the point? And I'm a big ole rule breaker -- I have continued stories that were started prior to that November, and I've written several shorter pieces. I figure the point is I'm writing 50K in on month and that's what matters.

This is my ... ::counts:: ... 6th year.

Yeah, all about the rebelling! And congrats, that's quite a run.

I'm a little more partial to Avengers than HP fic, but you should go with whichever makes you happiest ::koffkoffavengerskoff::.
