Holiday

So, friends, I have a good chunk of next week off work, essentially.  Naturally, I have already over-booked myself with stuff I should be doing for work while I'm not there but, in the meantime, I'm taking recommendations.  What should I read?  What should I watch?  Where can I find it? What sequel/prequel/missing scene have you always wanted me to write?

For archival purposes

Alongside (the Don't Care if I Never Get Back remix) is a version ofcelli's Prequel (Thirty-Eight Maps)

and Good Night, and Good Luck is the more-cheerful than it sounds remix of another celli classic, the Five Things Five Ways Dan and Casey Signed Off From Sports Night on Various Occasions.

The five things story really won't make much sense unless you read the original; Alongside could be read as a stand-alone, but do yourself a favor and read celli's Prequel: it's short and masterful.

and then what happens?

Meme, via riverlight: When you see this, share 3 random lines from 3 WIPs.


“Damn right I don’t have to bribe you--with your hourly rates, you should throw in a free continental breakfast for me,” Danny had grumbled, “But you work a long day; what if you get faint from hunger just as I’m having a revelation?”

They must be on the very good drugs; John can feel the loopy smile spreading across his face at the idea of Rodney, stranded in the wilderness creating simple tools:“You’re my favorite boy scout, McKay.”

“You certainly do think a powerful lot about things you don’t know much about, don’t you?” Mal asks, so smug and dismissive that Simon can suddenly understand exactly why Atherton Wing wanted him dead.

better late than--

Can you still do this meme if you haven't posted anything in...[meep] six months?!

Pick any passage of 500 words or less from any fanfic I’ve written, and stick that selection in my ask/fan mail. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what’s going on in the character’s heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

"light and time and mood and air"

David Mitchell: "I do think there’s some relationship between maintaining focus, looking closely, and the act of writing itself. The more you practice really looking, the more convincingly you can build a set for a scene. You become used to looking at the relationships between objects and people and light and time and mood and air."
