SO. I AM TOTALLY BEHIND HERE, AND I'M SURE THIS WILL SURPRISE ABSOLUTELY NO-ONE, BUT HOW MUCH DO I LOVE WHIP IT? SO FREAKING MUCH ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ OMG CUTE GIRLS HITTING THINGS AND BEING RIDICULOUSLY GAY IN ROLLERSKATES, COULD THIS MOVIE BE ANY MORE PERFECT?

Why are there no Whip It vids, universe? This is obviously a wrong that must be corrected. And now I kind of want a Disney RPF/Whip It fusion WHERE DEMI AND SELENA JOIN ROLLER DERBY, COME ON, IT WOULD BE AWESOME. I also think there should be a Zac/Vanessa Back to the Future AU, IDEK. But Zac Efron kind of reminds me of a young Michael J Fox, so, clearly it should be a thing.

Also, in things that aren't related but sound like they are, I really think somebody should vid Psych to Whip It (the song). Devo is still cool, right?

Anyway, I spent all weekend copying everything on my computer to an eternal HD, erasing my hard drive, and installing a new operating system. (Before that, I was running Tiger, which. New software wouldn't run on my computer! So this is much better.) And then reinstalling everything. Which took a long time, but I ended up with, like 20GB of extra space on my hard drive, so I'm not complaining.

And I watched Brothers & Sisters, which - apparently Joe Jonas was supposed to be on the show? Really old casting + episode spoilers )

Um, and I signed up for twitter, so I guess I'm doing that now?

Oh my god. The What Goes Down sequel is done, done, done. I got 4500 words written today (including a 1000 word smutty coda) to finish off the series, which clocks in at about 30,000 words. Which ... is way longer than I expected it to be. That makes it almost as long as the first series, when it was originally supposed to be a short sequel to finish off the universe. I failed at both, it seems, since I have ideas for at least four more things I really want to write in the 'verse. (Including yet another sequel. Sigh. I'm starting to fear becoming one of those badfic authors who keeps posting chapter after chapter of these epic series, so to read anything they post you have to go over 100,000 words of other stuff. Only, I hope this isn't badfic. Really, really hope. I like it, but maybe my taste isn't as good as I think it is.)

Anyway, it's done! I still need to type it all up, since it's currently sitting on 60 pages of a notebook, but I look forward to being able to post it soon.

Fic discussion, no spoilers )

Also, does anyone remember when I posted a while ago about a hypothetical High School Musical dance game? Well, it isn't hypothetical any more! It turns out is actually exists, which is AWESOME, and even more awesome is that J brought it home for me today! Which is a totally excellent reward for finishing my fic.

Thing: I saw High School Musical 3! And it was awesome. And, okay, the theatre was mostly filled with giggling eight year old girls, but whatever. I laughed throughout, like, the whole thing (roughly equal parts amusement and affection), and there was singing and dancing and basketball and prom and graduation and Ryan being delightfully gay and an entire scene whose sole purpose, as far as I could tell, was to have everyone in the cast grope hug Gabriella. Anyway, that was pretty much the final part to my whole birthday week extravaganza, and I had a blast.

Also, while we were shopping beforehand, Jeremy asked me if I would want a High School Musical DDR-type game, and I was forced to admit that, yes, I really would want that. I'm not sure if I just turned twenty-five or twelve.

Thing 1: Vid insta-rec! (Now That I Can) Dance by [livejournal.com profile] ladymajavader Legend of the Seeker, Richard/Kahlan. Richard tries to impress Kahlan with a combination of flying leaps, pervasive shirtlessness and funky new dance moves he learned just for her. But does she love him (now that he can dance)? I know fandom's collective attention is currently focused on a different cracky fantasy show, but I kind of love Legend of the Seeker beyond the telling of it. Even if you're not watching the show, I'd definitely recommend this vid, which is awesome and upbeat and dance-y and cracky and shirtless. Guh.

Thing 3: One Tree Hill!! ♥ Okay, so some of you might be questioning my fandom choices by now, but I refuse to care. I just finished season two, and oh, with Dan -> building on fire and Anders HOT UNCLE COOPER! and Nathan having, like, the best breakdown in the history of ever (where he goes to school because he threw his Playstation at the wall his Playstation broke, and his idea of punishing Haley is to paint the apartment pink and hang pictures of clowns, which is pretty much completely awesome) and crashing race cars and cracky AUs, and ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

1) I'm ridiculously behind on my TV viewing, but brief reactions from the past week or so:

90210 )

Friday Night Lights )

Greek )

Grey's Anatomy )

Heroes )

The Office )

Private Practice )

Smallville )

2) Caught up on watching The Office, and, ♥. I do love Jim and Pam, but I've fallen completely head over heels for Ryan/Kelly. I just - I really don't know. But they are currently one of my very favourite ships, and I love them to death. Season five spoilers + speculation )

3) [livejournal.com profile] remixthedrabble is currently open for sign ups! Sign up to be a remixee (to have your fics remixed) here, or to be a remixer (to remix someone else's fics) here, or both. I'm really looking forward to it, especially because, even though I have a million things to do at the moment, it's only a drabble or ficlet. Plus, remixes!

4) Trying to get as much as I can done before November (I'll be in New Zealand for a week to visit my mum, and then in Byron Bay for my dad's wedding), and work out what I can do now vs what I can take with me to do while I'm over there. Also, I'm finally writing stuff again, even if so far it's mainly ficlets/drabbles - I have my Sweet Charity fic to work on, plus a bunch of belated gift fics and a couple of late ficathon entries, but right now, I'm kind of zen about it; I know I'll finish what I have to, but I'm not giving myself a hard time about working on other things instead. Because, really, fandom is supposed to be fun, and if I start stressing I'm more likely to burn myself out than anything else. So, happy place.

5) I wrote fic!
