It's pissing down rain outside. I normally wouldn't mind that, because I love the rain in general, but I hate driving it in, and I have to pick my son up from school later. Also, I am out of both coffee and cigarettes.

A few days ago I started writing a fill for the kink meme. The prompt pretty much boiled down to Jon and Theon having angry, bruisy sex because they both want Robb, and it sounded fantastic at the time, but now I'm 4,500 words into... I don't even know what it is. It has a lot of canon and plot and deep thinky thoughts and not a whole lot of angry, bruisy sex -- in fact, there is very little sex at all. I'm kind of baffled, because in fanfic terms, people having proxy sex and acting like creepers is pretty much my standard operating procedure. And Theon is a total creeper, so.

Basically I need to figure out if I should scrap it or salvage it, but I've been staring at it so long I've started to hate every word of it.

I had some recs, but now I can't find those bookmarks.

my son is kind of lolarious )

REMIX. UGH. I don't want to wait until tomorrow! I want to read my story now!

Speaking of stories, I'm in the middle of a beta job on a TOTALLY AWESOME STORY, which I love, because I feel like I'm getting a sneak preview. It's one of my favorite pairings, too -- a pairing that totally needs more fic.

Right now I am staring at about 2,000 words of Jon/Sansa that will probably never see the light of day. It started off as a kink meme fill, but then it did that thing where it decided it wanted to have a storyline and stuff. I can't decide if this is a \O/ surprise or a /O\ surprise.

flyby recs.

One Fic:

the ruins we have built by [ profile] juno_chan [ASoiAF; Jon Arryn/Lysa Tully, PG13]

Here I am with yet another fic I didn't know I wanted in my life until I read it. Jon and Lysa have such an unhappy marriage, and this is a wonderful take on all the issues underneath that -- that he is older than her father, that she is in love with someone else, that she suffers a string of tragic pregnancies -- all from Jon's POV. Beautifully done.

One Art:

I was going to do that music meme that's going around, where you list your favorite songs based on an assigned letter, but then I realized they'd probably all be My Chemical Romance songs anyway, so.

All right. Off to finish my fest fics.

Turns out, I've completely lost control of my [ profile] dysfuncentine fic. About a quarter of the way in, it just started writing itself, and what's going on now isn't even on a nodding acquaintance with what I'd had in mind when I first sat down to write it. The pairing is the same, but everything else went right out the window. Suprise! emo fic for the fail. /o\

Also, it's acting like it needs more words, which... I do not have time for, since it's due tomorrow, and everything.

I went to Whole Foods for breakfast, and had some amazing cauilflower hash with onions, sliced carrots, and fake cheese. I'm not big on fake cheese as a rule, but in this it worked nicely. I'm on my third cup of coffee; hopefully I can translate the caffiene into getting this fic finished.

I got my [ profile] hp_beholder assignment yesterday. I'm half-excited and half-terrified, so. We'll see how that goes.
