Just a quick update.  
So, I realize that people have probably thought that I was long gone, abandoning LJ, or just busy. *dramatic sigh* If you thought of me at all. ~_^ :p

Yeah, I'm in a strange mood, but that's okay. I'm a bit excited actually. See, I haven't been inspired to write anything in months it seems and what I have written, I had to really work at. But for some reason, now that I've written the response for vmwhat_if, I feel inspired to write some more. Possibly something for loveathons.

I mean, I'm not completely satisfied with how I wrote my challenge response, but I am happy that I managed to write it at all. It is so frustrating to sit in front of the computer, or even a stack of paper, and just stare at it, wondering what the hell you should write because your mind is completely blank. And that's how I was for this challenge. Oh, I vaguely had an idea way back when I signed up and then I signed up for a couple other challenges and then this past month or so, I've been wondering what I was thinking because I was so sure that I wouldn't be able to get myself to write anything at all.

But now I actually have an idea on how to kill a certain assigned character off...well, the reason that she would do it. And it's twisted and probably not the best reason in the world but it's there and that's enough for now. Mostly because I'm definitely toying with the idea of making this character completely and utterly screwed up.

So, yes, I'm happy. I will say that this whole time, I've been planning on taking a break from fic writing once I finished my challenges (and the ficlets I owe to people) and I won't completely rule that out yet. But I think this may have been what I needed to get writing again. And if I do take a break, it probably won't be from writing the fic, it would be from posting it right away and instead trying to write as much of it as I could because believe me, it sucks to start posting right away and then get stuck. Look at Wrong. Or if you read my Buffy stuff, look at Father of the Brat and There's Always Consequences. I've been floundering a bit on those but I'm close to finishing FotB and as for TAC, I think I may finally getting inspiration for that once more which is nice because I miss writing kid!Xander.

Oh? And now? I've got ideas for at least two or three HP fics swirling in my head as well as a couple of little ficlets for That '70s Show. Those would actually mostly be little filler scenes that I got an idea for while watching certain episodes. (Like the episode with Eric and Donna's bachelor and bachelorette parties. I have a Jackie/Hyde scene to write for that one but I'm nervous about getting the characterization right. So...holding off.)

Anyway, this has completely turned into a ramble about fic writing, when really I just wanted to say I'm alive and I'm going to be catching up on my f-list and everyone's fics (I hope). So, if I don't get around to at least one comment on your LJ, I'm saying hi now and waving. See? *waves* Hi!

And now, I'm off. To either write or read or both. Not sure yet. Oh well.

Hee, I missed you too! And I'm back and working on that fic rec list (and doing a happy dance because I finally found HP het that I liked! Yay!) and working on catching up on everyone's fics.

Oh yeah, don't think I didn't see you were on chapter six. ^_^ I was at my best friend's house and skimming through to see what you had been up to and I saw that and actually let out a shout. LOL, then I told her she would definitely have to read it. Hee.

*nods* Yup! I'm staying. Even if I have to use school computers for a bit when I go back because I'm going to be moving to a house closer to campus. But I'm so not going anywhere. *g*

Me too. I haven't even been able to bring myself to watch the finale on tape yet. i haven't accepted that it is over yet.
Nicole: They brought the house down!blue_icy_rose on July 30th, 2006 09:24 pm (UTC)
I watched the finale when it aired, so I won't say anything and spoil you but I'm so sad it's over. Which is why most of the fics I've been reading have been continuations or they went AU at the end of season 7. Thankfully, they've been well-written and in character.

And thankfully, Wal-Mart over here has been having the seasons on DVD on sale for $19.99. Needless to say, I've been buying whenever I've gotten the chance.

I am going to have to break down and watch it. I saw the special and that had me in tears.
Nicole: Spike Sawyer and Logan - oh my!blue_icy_rose on July 30th, 2006 09:36 pm (UTC)
You wouldn't happen to know where I could find the special (if at all) or of someone who has it, would you? I didn't get to see it and I've been wanting to watch it. The DVDs have little behind-the-scenes featurettes that are just plain fun (interviews and a trivia game on season 1 and the internet episodes that let you see them when they're shooting certain episodes on season 2) so maybe the special will be on the final season DVD set. I'll probably keep my fingers crossed for that since I don't know if it can be found somewhere else.
