Wait! ETA: my userpics are overdue tomorrow, this thing tells me! And I don't have a credit card! Someone want to spot me two bucks? EagainTA: Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] thevaliumsofalj! Thank you, anonymous gift-certificate-giver who might be SNK! is [livejournal.com profile] likethesun2! Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] winter_baby, just for being you!

The script continues, the plot thickens, the pace quickens, the writer sickens and flees to LJ for solace!

[livejournal.com profile] septicemic has agreed to sketch my Mars base, so I can include a map of the landscape along with the script when I shop it around. Otherwise, it turns out, it's really hard to DESCRIBE the layout of various modular landing units and jiffy popper plastic domes.

This fulfills a wish of mine, personalized art from [livejournal.com profile] septicemic, whose talent and majestry are known far and wide and sprawling forth from the great state of Ohio!

I turn 30 in three weeks, Feb. 1. I wish for fic, like so, and moreso! Consult my shameless wishlist and revel in my shame! Or, you know, write me one of these things!

[But don't let it discourage you from buying me stuff or sending me songs, natch. *g*]


  • Family Guy Brian/Stewie. Just, something wonderful and wrong and with roadtripping.
  • thirtysomething, really, ANYTHING. I want TS fic SO BAD. Maybe some Ellyn/Melissa, some good subversive slash. Or Michael/Gary, or Hope/Susannah!
  • Love & Rockets, Maggie/Hopey with some angst and punk rock? Or, like, Hopey/Penny where Hopey would rather be with Maggie? Mmmm.
  • Northern Exposure, clever, angsty, sexy Fleischman/O'Connell, devoid of schmoop. Well, okay, a little schmoop. But not a lot!
  • Betsy-Tacy. Tell me you don't want to read Betsy/Tacy/Tib 3some as much as I do? However, what I'd really like is some Betsy/Winona. Mmmm!
  • Chronicles of Prydain, Eilonwy/Achren. How hot, seriously, would that be??? Or Taran/Gwydion, or even just some really crowd-pleasing Taran/Eilonwy. I mean. Dude.
  • And, since I can, MOOOOORE Into the Woods? Anything with the Baker and/or his wife. [ETA: [livejournal.com profile] mazily already totally represented for me, here: Another Witch, Another Moment, because she's Queen of the Sondheim Playground! However, I want MOOOORE, even MOOOOORE!] Or, some Baker's Wife/Cinderella? Hot stuff, kiddo, hot stuff.
  • And how about some Boomer fic for BSG? I would just about kill for a Helo/Boomer/Starbuck threesome.
  • Or some classic B5 Lennier/Marcus?
  • Or some classic Jeremiah Jeremiah/Markus?
  • Or some classic ridiculously hot Janeway/Seven.


I now return you to your regularly scheduled script-writing, already in progress, and leaning suspiciously toward the slashy.

Want polyamory? [livejournal.com profile] 3_ships went live today: I Saw Three Ships.

Captain [Anonymous] wrote Tactics for me! And this one coulda been jacked straight out of my brain, THIS is just the Ronon I love, so much stronger than the rest of 'em but still entirely vulnerable to 'em, even if he won't admit it. This is Ronon/Sheppard/Weir, with Ronon sizing up his prey. Thank you so much, [Anonymous!].

Now, I'm writing my pilot. I got seventy-two hours and no more excuses.

You, out there in TV land, post some [livejournal.com profile] 3_ships recs for me to devour when I'm taking a break procrastinating finished (with this scene? at least?).

Seriously, I got the best Yuletide present a girl could ask for.

Here's what I didn't ask for, but, after spending three days nose-deep in the Yuletide archive, here is what I crave, oh, crave, with every fiber in my ficklicious being. Look how all the girlslash I like is in fandoms so rare as to not actually be fandoms at all? Sad, sad meeee.

My offerings to the New Year's Resolution pile, except that most of them I forgot to actually request:

  • Family Guy Brian/Stewie. Just, something wonderful and wrong and with roadtripping.
  • thirtysomething, really, ANYTHING. I want TS fic SO BAD. Maybe some Ellyn/Melissa, some good subversive slash.
  • Love & Rockets, Maggie/Hopey with some angst and punk rock? Or, like, Hopey/Penny where Hopey would rather be with Maggie? Mmmm.
  • Northern Exposure, clever, angsty, sexy Fleischman/O'Connell, devoid of schmoop. Well, okay, a little schmoop. But not a lot!
  • Betsy-Tacy. Tell me you don't want to read Betsy/Tacy/Tib 3some as much as I do? However, what I'd really like is some Betsy/Winona. Mmmm!
  • Chronicles of Prydain, Eilonwy/Achren. How hot, seriously, would that be???
  • And, since I can, MOOOOORE Into the Woods? Anything with the Baker and/or his wife.


I'm just sayin', I've got a birthday coming up in just about a month... *g*

Also, quietly? I am BUGGING OUT about my pilot. A draft of the script and the treatment are due January 10th. I have the story outlined to the letter, and I have the treatment nearly complete. What's missing, however, is the actual SCRIPT, with, you know, DIALOGUE in. What I've got exists piecemeal and in patches, because I wrote straight up from the outline and out of order, as is the WBC way. Of course, you don't realize until you're actually writing the scene that it turns out you need to KNOW about dust-collecting orbital panels if you want to craft a scene around them, and at a certain point [Nico fixes the orbital thingy] is INSUFFICIENT. And so, I am rere-rereading Zubrin's "The Case for Mars" as well as the TREMENDOUSLY helpful "Private Space Ventures," thank you, [livejournal.com profile] projectjulie!

And then I can fix the orbital thingy.

And then, hopefully, make it funny.

All of it. Twelve days!

[livejournal.com profile] runpunkrun, this is why I'm hiding from our Bug! World, expect a really awesome Punkensab SGA fic, sometime after January 10th?

Universary. Universary. Is this a word? This can't be a word, this is like the anniversary of a universe. WHAT is the word I'm looking for, featuring Deans and Headmasters and an overlarge campus that contains both graduate and undergraduate colleges including schools of specialization, from optometry to theatre? Universary. Universary.

The Northern Exposure pilot is just fucking brilliant. Did you know that Maggie was initially "Maggie Casey"? And that Shelly was initially a hot Native chick? Man, she's so much funnier as a white-girl Canadian pageant queen. I'm stealing everything I can from this script, scrubbing the serial numbers off and throwing it into space. Seriously. THIS close to having mooseburgers on Mars.

UNIVERSITY! /dumbfuck. Right?

/she said, writing.

I'm over here makin' space happen and reading about private space ventures like I'm cramming for finals. I'm trying to write this flashback in my pilot, and fuck do I ever hate trying to write flashbacks. And so, here, have some SGAXmas icons!

What appears to be an as-yet-unseeded SGA 2x14 -- anyone started/finished downloading a torrented version of this ep yet?

SGA 2x14 Torrentspy Page (opens to a page, not a right-click-save link) -- this is the Azureus/eztv XviD-TvD that is also listed on Mininova and says 0 seeders, 0 leechers atm. ETA: it's downloading, with no seeds, but .966 completed out there somewhere. Mine's coming in at about 16kBs and I'm crossing my fingers it'll speed up. Come on in, the torrent's fine!

I'm back from WBC, my second-to-last class. The script's due January 2nd. Apoplexy? Check.

But more importantly, today I received in the mail some fabulous Christmas gifts from two of my favorite brilliant and loveable aristocrats, [livejournal.com profile] maudelynn and Londo Mollari. Dan'a, I don't have the words to express the perfect awesomeness of this present. I've been jonesing for this book for about six months. Sit tight while I *read* the thing, and then squee even more appropriately and effectively about just how brilliant it is. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

And to the [livejournal.com profile] fandomcards tiny genius who channeled Londo, dammit, it's PERFECT. In fact, I'm confident Londo's got a stack of cards just like these, and a signature stamp, and a host of underpaid interns addressing and sending and swooning over his MAJESTY. Dude, what an awesome thing to get in the mail. If you're out there, somehow, reading this, and don't mind revealing yourself (is that okay, [livejournal.com profile] boniblithe?) I'd love to know who to thank even LOUDER... For now, thank you, Centauri Embassy, Office of the Prime Minister, for the greetings on this, the Universe's grandest holiday season.

I'm still chewing on those polls. Stand by.

I'm sitting in a map of index cards, sprawled out in three acts, and I almost know exactly where everything's going to go. We have achieved title, people. We have achieved character names. We have dynamic manipulation and reversion to misbehavior, we have battle!

Remind me, later, when I ask, that the explosion happens FIRST.

Ten Things I Love:

1. Cube
2. Northern Exposure
3. [livejournal.com profile] runpunkrun
4. soy, and soy-based foods
5. big cats, preferably of the Kalahari
6. things that are gay, especially [livejournal.com profile] wearemany
7. a nice fork
8. anything still in shrinkwrap
9. [livejournal.com profile] projectjulie and Julie-based Internet Concerns
10. sitting in a puddle of index cards, almost knowing where everything's going to fall

Assembling!

Oh, my god, EVERYBODY. [livejournal.com profile] runpunkrun wrote this When the Subject is a Fraction, where Rodney let Cadman get under his skin and release his hidden gay. Punk is like a SCULPTOR, and she can take this chunk of rock and carve away everything that isn't Rodney. Contents: hot blondes, screws, kisses. Marvelous.

Am back from a very inspiring and productive WBC class, feeling pumped about this pilot. And I have new SGA! [livejournal.com profile] runpunkrun, disk is in the mail tomorrow, tick-a-lock and so forth, go be in a variable time-speed room and come back and read this post in, like, three days.

One Ambien left.

Dear [livejournal.com profile] yuletide and [livejournal.com profile] 3_ships Santas!

How nice of you to volunteer to make me a present! You are ALREADY super awesome just for being here. And seriously, do what you want. I'd much rather have you do something interesting that you're psyched about than something that fits my wossnames, requests.

(Oh, but the part where, And Then They Have Sex? I want that part. Even if it's just a tasteful fadeout. *g*)

Honestly, do your voodoo, Santa!

Love and other indoor sports,
Sab.
