I managed to punch out Chapter 7 of Unpaved Roads. Trying to write two characters both named Michael challenged the technical skills or the lack thereof. There were only so many times I could write 'young Michael' before it started to look funny. The thing is, Michael's taken my writing muse hostage. I mean, seriously, another chapter on Michael?  He just wouldn't let go, it's like he knows I have a type and he's just being all angsty and crazy right in front of me.

One of the funnest things to do is to put TSCC words in Nikita character's mouths and try to make it work. I feel so cleverly stupid doing that, if that makes sense at all. Like a bad pun, deep down, I'm smiling along with it even though it's so groanworthy. And where's the TSCC in all of this, other than the random terminator back there?  Well, the St. Petersburg op is sometime in 2006 and Sarah & Co don't come out of the time bubble until September of 2007. The timelines don't match as well as I thought they would. Sigh. But Sarah will meet Nikita & Co, how else would Alex get that photograph to give to John? I just have to figure out where Michael fits into all of this, he's completely throwing me off. :p

I'm the March reccer at [community profile] scc_reloaded! Come follow along if you're into T:SCC. :)

Bless this union in Wisconsin! Awwwwwwwww. [via Metafilter]

Amanda Hocking is 26 years old. She has 9 self-published books to her name, and sells 100,000+ copies of those ebooks per month... writing YA paranormal romance. Honestly, I would totally buy original fics from some of the people in my circle/friendslist. The discussion on the MF thread is pretty enlightening. Editors, betas, etc. outside the context of fandom. A good read if you want to see what's breaking through the traditional barriers on publishing.

I don't like where this shit store is going despite the allure of 'always clean bathrooms'. It's a Republican free-market wet dream, although it is apparently a Dutch chain. The market will take care of your shitting needs, why have regulated building codes and handicapped requirements for restrooms when you can pay to shit in the toilet of your choice?! -_-

Kitty rock! The guy should be happy the cat allowed him to drum along. [via Cute boys with cats! There's a [syndicated profile] cuteboyswithcats_feed to add to your dreamwidth circle too!]

I just read a Nikita spoiler (though now I wish I didn't; Just goes to show how much the show owns me, I actually sorta-kinda care about being too spoiled) and wee spoily. )

[livejournal.com profile] scchronicles_tv is having a Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles rewatch [via [profile] maharet83]. I have to wonder if all the tech in our computers can now let people do live MST3K/Podcast convos during a rewatch? If everyone has SKYPE or some conference-abled app, one person can do the recording, and those who don't want to talk can contribute via the text chat option (which can then be saved as a chatlog?). The only hurdle would be to schedule a RL meeting time across the timezones, I think! Has this ever been done?

[livejournal.com profile] birdienl is running a Mr. Period Drama poll. Round 8 is with Toby Stephens, Richard Armitage and Matthew Macfadyen, a Brönte man, a Gaskell man and an Austen/Dickens man. You're voting to see who's going to leave the competition. Richard Armitage of North & South fame appears to have lots of staying power, hee! If you're a fan of period drama and haven't seen North & South, run, don't walk, to see it. Armitage's Thornton, dare I say it, is better than Firth's Darcy. O_O I know, right?

Look at this pretty bird! I love this animal blog, it's like the quiet and studious version of the CuteOverload's class clown. Heh.

Sarah Haskins cracks me up with Target Women, too bad there are no new segments. *Sad face* In honor of the upcoming V-Day:

It is a truth universally acknowledged that the worst thing a woman can be is single. Worse than leprosy, you ask? Yes, because lepers live in a colony and single woman live alone... )

I've been on T:SCC kick this weekend, following the recs on [community profile] scc_reloaded. Holy shit I miss that show so much. I keep remembering the last scene and it just BURNS how the show just ENDS RIGHT THERE.  Derek! Kyle! Allison!  The fucking robot apocalypse!

Now I've got an insane plot bunny running around in my head. I did a semi-cross over in Lost and Found post Judgment Day, but no one from T:SCC is actually in there. I need to rectify that mistake and have Sarah Connor meet Nikita, preferably over Terminator gun fire. I'm thinking Sarah:Savannah::Nikita:Alex, with Savannah and Alex being trusted lieutenants of Connor's army. This feels like a huge undertaking because (1) I've never actually written T:SCC and (2) I'm still a little freaked out by the overdrive I went into with the behemoth that was Scar Tissue.

Or I could lie in wait and hope someone writes it. Just putting that out there. :D

Also, how can there not be more smutty Nikita fic? I've read like, TWO.  Maggie Q herself said Nikita and Michael fight because they can't have sex and Shane agreed!  Isn't that sort of a call to fandom to write fighty!sex or sexy!fighting?

Ugh. RL duty calls.
