Gimme back my livejournal. There is a motherlode of Xmen First Class slash fic I have to read.
Can the writers of Castle please go hang out with the writers of Bones over summer and impart some awesomeness on them? DAMN the Castle season finale was good, a beautiful bittersweet mixture of hope and sadness/frustration. A great note to leave me on for the summer break, a note that will definitely have me back in September.
By contrast Bones has sucked donkey balls ever since ep 100, the writers are terrified of getting the main characters into a relationship but there really is no more logical progress or escalation to make if they want to keep them apart, and the stretching they're going to to keep it all going is really starting to show. Without giving spoilers, WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT. Might as well rewatch S1-5 because they're just keep going back to the start anyway. A lot of frustrated fans after that finale, and I can't even really see progress from here. It's like the writers have just given up, and I'm giving up with them. Not enough hope in the finale to make me anticipate a way forward from here. I'll probably watch a few eps... or maybe not - I only watched S4 after S5 had begun. I'll be in my own little fanfic world.

Strangely, I don't feel the need to write Castle fanfic - maybe because the series writing is so good?
Why read the book when brilliantly witty people can read it for you?

Someone has posted a friendly, upbeat review for every single chapter of my first desert story. Then said she is a bit hesitant to start on the sequel (because I've been letting that hang for a looong time). Feel like I've been powah-boosted!
So all other activities are off until I've finished that damn story. It's nearly finished anyway, I just stalled near the end.

Weird thing: when you read fragments of a story that never quite took shape, and find yourself thinking "damn, I wish they would finish this"

and then you realise 'they' is you.

Brain itch

I've not written anything, fiction wise, for about a year now. It's like there is a tap inside my head that was always wide open, and it's just shut off. I really miss writing, I miss the feeling that there's a story happening and I just have to catch it into words on paper.

I don't have that back yet, but I've been having a weird sort of brain itch over the past few days, like maybe it'll come back. I've been reading some of my older stuff, which is always entertaining in a vague "did I write this?" kind of way.
