Just wrote over 600 words of my bigbang that turns what was gonna be the big kissing scene into a cuddle-cryfest, and it works so much better.

Then I did my taxes.

So now I am poor and incapable of making fictional characters makeout.

snarklyboojum: (winchesters have issues)
Finally decided on a title for my bigbang. Tales of Brave Ulysses.

Ohhhhh, this is gonna be good. Or maybe horrible, I dunno.
snarklyboojum: (DC on a mission)

*does the dance of artistic joy*

Now, to make it shippy or not. Hmmmmmmmmm.....

Just signed up for [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang again. And I just realized the draft I've been working on since this past summer doesn't have a proper ending.

headdesk MISCThis little bunny is me, you guys have no idea.

Thinking about signing up for [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang again this year so I dusted off the draft that's been languishing on my computer since this summer. Not only has the original Where the Wild Things Are theme grown to include Dante's Purgatorio but also The Last Unicorn. I have no idea what I'm doing anymore.

But god if it comes together like it is in my head it's gonna be great

Okay, so I’m from the Buffy fandom of old, so I know how being jossed feels. I’ve been working on a purgatory fic that is slowly gaining momentum - we’re talking damn near big bang levels here, though I haven't gotten beyond the rough outline stage yet. Here’s the question: IS IT WORTH IT TO BECOME SO INVESTED WHEN THE NEW SEASON STARTS BEFORE I’LL FINISH IT? AND LOOKS TO BE PHENOMENAL? Is anyone interested in reading purgatory fic? Or am I just fiddling about with ideas to keep myself occupied in the interim?
snarklyboojum: (this maketh me chew upon my glasses)
Soooooo. I'm supposed to be taking a shower before bed. Instead I'm brainstorming another hugeass Supernatural fic. *headdesk* I dunno, either.

It's not the circus but it is something very near and dear to my heart. It requires some research, though, so I'm going to start now. I'm looking for classic children's literature that transports a "simple" character somewhere else... like a hunter into purgatory the forest, for instance. Am I missing anything from this list? I've read most of these but I feel like I've left something out.

Which ones would you like to see make an appearance in Supernatural-land? (Now in handy poll form!)

[Poll #1857762]
snarklyboojum: (omg spacemonsters!)
You know that void you feel after finally finishing a huge project that's taken up your brain for the past few months? That's where I'm at right now. :(

I really kind of want to write Purgatory fic, but there's NO PLOT yet. Just random snatches of dialogue and a whole bunch of meta. I don't want to be spoiled by anything so anything I put together will most likely be jossed but I have a lot of thoughts.

Anybody have any suggestions to get me going? Inspirations? Plot bunnies for sale?

...Prompts? I'm not promising anything, but we'll see?
snarklyboojum: (must'a been drinkin' on that post)
The majority of The Precision of The Fall was edited at five in the morning on very little sleep. Reading through it again I noticed a lot of errors I missed. That was totally my bad (not my beautiful beta’s) and I feel terrible about it. I’ve gone through and adjusted everything so that it’s perfect... or as close to perfect as I can get. I’ve also updated the PDFs so if you've already downloaded and want a better version you may want to check that out.

There’s nothing quite so mortifying as being super excited about posting something only to find glaring grammar issues after you’ve pimped it all over. *headdesk*

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed. Well, let's see.

1.) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2.) Italicize those you intend to read.
3.) Underline those you LOVE.
4.) Put an asterisk next to the books you'd rather shove hot pokers in your eyes than read.

Fic title: The Precision of The Fall
Author name: [ profile] behindblue_eyes
Artist name: [ profile] daggomus_prime
Pairing: Dean/Castiel, Sam/ Ruby, Sam/Jessica
Rating: R for bad language and reference to sexual situations (And I mean bad language.)
Word count: 36,850
Warnings: alcohol abuse, driving under the influence, latent PTSD, circus animals coming to a bad end (though no animal abuse), cross-dressing, and Michael being a douche.
Summary: They used to be called The Family Winchester. People came from miles around to see their act, knowing their names and faces before the circus even rolled into town. Life was shiny with salt and sawdust, sequins and smiles. Now, all that was left were a few crumpled posters, an empty bunk next to Dean's, and the leather-gripped knives hidden in the trick pockets of his vest.
Special Notes: I don’t know how to do anything mentioned in this story, let alone ride a motorcycle, throw a knife, or fly on the trapeze. All knowledge is gained from the internet. If anyone reading this does know how to do those things and is aware I got anything wrong, you are awesome and please don’t send the clowns after me.
Special Thanks: To [ profile] daggomus_prime, my brain twin, for her patience and utterly breathtaking artwork. I couldn’t have done it without you. Also to [ profile] knoifey_spoony for encouragement and the title suggestion.

My big bang posts tomorrow.


I don't think I'm ready for this. Marathon editing/coding begins after I take a nap. Eep.

Self, what the hell are you doing? You're supposed to be finishing your Big Bang draft prior to begging for betas. THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO BE ADDING SCENES. Didn't you learn this the last time with Dirty Rotten?

Although that scene was one of the best ones in the story, and really fleshed out the First War. Still. No new scenes!

Anyway. I'm going to need a beta once this one is done. Anyone interested? It's around about 30k non-graphic Dean/Castiel circus AU after the Vietnam War. I'm mainly looking for tense checking, making sure everything's in character, and keeping the dialogue as authentic as possible.

Anyone? Bueller?

*puppy eyes*
