Ok, well, I hope you guys like Supernatural
as much as Criminal Minds
, because Tadd keeps giving me ideas. And Sam and Dean are just yum. Is there such thing as a "# ways Dean gets out of the Deal" challenge? Because I already wrote one, and I have ideas for two others so far. One borrowing from Steven Brust, and the other being a huge pun/play on words.
Tadd also keeps giving me crack titles for uber!angst stories, like Gratuitous Abuse of Loopholes
and Hell in a Handbasket,
although I blame the latter on tru_faith_lost
. The fact that Loopholes
was supposed to be a crack!fic one-shot? Matters not at all. Sam and Dean were supposed
to thumb their noses at the crossroads demon and go driving off into the sunset together. Instead, I've got Dean all clingy and crying in Sam's arms.::sigh:: Right now those two are part of the Salt!verse...I don't know if I'll keep that name, but it's what came to mind. Someone give me something better.
Tadd has this bad habit of making mountains out of molehills. Look what happened with Knowledge and Innocence.
I finally dealt with Haley's Knowing Too Much (TM). It's hard as hell trying to work little tidbits into stories without it coming across as a two-by-four to the back of the head.
I need to start writing down meta. Really. Especially in OI&E. I think I've forgotten more OI&E meta than I currently know
. And that's damn scary.
So. Emily's disintegrating. Haley still knows too much. JJ's being all pissy and jealous and protective. Good god, Rossi's trying to pay a visit to the BAU. Even though Gideon's not leaving. Just so I can have him open mouth, insert foot. I think my patent dislike of Rossi - make that bitter hatred - has made itself known. I just want him to make a total ass of himself in front of Hotch. The fact that Morgan wants to put a fist through Rossi's face is just a bonus.
OI&E is coming along slowly. Like molasses. That's been refrigerated. It probably doesn't help that there haven't been new eps for a couple weeks now, or that I've caught up with Supernatural
- I think I watched about 18 episodes in 36 hours. And I really don't have the urge to do the same with Criminal Minds
. Right now I'm working on downloading Stargate SG-1
. I watched the pilot (again), and I've seen a handful of the early eps. I might just end up taking a break from OI&E and work on the Salt!verse. Or something else. I have a Gideon/Reid/Hotch challenge I need to do for the Rounds of Kink #5. The lead-in is there; the actual smut part, not so much. I've left it to simmer while I work on Bloody Bandaids
. Nothing like knifeplay to get the blood flowing. Pun intended.
I dunno. As much angst as there is in OI&E, the boys and girls in the BAU just don't do angst like Sam and Dean do. At least, Tadd's not giving me more skin!hunger type clinging stuff for OI&E. Blah.
In other news, I updated the Fic Master List.
