Even-numbered lists are love

I've been sort of out of touch this week, so I thought I'd try to do a quick wrap-up of all the stuff I meant to talk about and didn't.

1. Arrested Development is coming back! Yay!

2. Eyes is not. Boo!

3. My boyfriend Jason Lee has a new show this fall! Yay!

4. It looks really stinky. Boo!

5. Gilmore Girls was good in some ways (Lorelai, Emily & Richard, Mama Kim) and bad in others (Tool!Rory must die). Also, the WB blows and I hate them.

6. House was amazing. But then ya'll knew that.

7. Haven't seen the new Star Wars yet and am avoiding spoilers. Won't see it until Tuesday when Mr. Sus can take off work to go with me. Am fully prepared for suckage. I do not believe anyone who tries to tell me it's good. You're evil, evil people who are trying to get my hopes up so they can once again be dashed and I refuse to fall for that this time. Just because it's better than TPM or AOTC doesn't mean it's actually good.

8. FX is finally showing the end of Buffy season 7. The last time it came around in the rerun rotation they inexplicably started over with "Welcome to the Hellmouth" (WTF is up with that?) about halfway through season 7 so I never got to see the end of the series. Only four more episodes to go and then I'll finally have caught up on all the Buffy and Angel I missed out on when they were actually, you know, on the air and an active fandom.

9. Speaking of Angel, I've been writing like a fiend on my big-ole post-series multi-part fic series, which is currently up to 22,000 words. Yes, I have apparently gone completely batshit fucking crazy. And I keep having more ideas for stories to incorporate further down the line, which I'm writing down and saving for later. So far I've got five separate episode-length stories floating around in my head, two of which are mostly written, but still need lots of revision before they're postable. (And I'm currently taking applications for betas, because most of my usual readers aren't so much into the Angel.)

10. Also speaking of Angel, David Boreanaz has a new show in the fall! Yay!

11. I had other stuff to say I think, but I just had a big stinky fight with my dad on the phone in the middle of writing this and now I can't remember. Boo! Now I'm going to go and write some more fic, because this is why I write fic--to make all the shitty stuff recede into the background.

12. This one is just so I can have an even-numbered list (for the benefit of certain slightly-crazy-but-lovable people who shall remain nameless).

ETA: Oh, yeah... Kelsey Grammer as the Beast in X-Men 3? No. Just... no. *shakes head sadly*

You are writing some "Angel" stuff!? When you are finished can you please email it to my mom or something? This is Rachel by the way, Heather's daughter.

Absolutely! In fact, if you want, you can be one of my beta readers. I need some folks who are into Angel to read it for me and tell me if it sucks or not.

I would be honored to be one of your beta readers! So, are you writing an "Angel" script or fanfic? I read one of your “Gilmore Girls” scripts and loved it. You are very talented.

Aw, thanks, hon! This one's just a regular fic. It started out as a script for an imaginary season six episode, but then I changed my mind and rewrote it in narrative prose. I've got first drafts of the first two stories done, but I still need to go through and do some major revisions. When that's done I'll send them to you and you can tell me what you think.

I love your icon! I was so glad when "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" won an Oscar! I was pretty disappointed though when Kate Winslet didn't win. Anyway, I am writing an "Angel" script. It needs A LOT of revision too. So, what is your fanfic about?
Jun. 2nd, 2005 02:27 pm (UTC)
Eternal Sunshine is my favorite movie of last year! And you're right, Kate totally should have won the Oscar.

That's awesome that you're writing an Angel script! I'd love to read it sometime when/if you're ready to show it to someone.

My fic picks up at the end of "Not Fade Away" and is sort of a virtual season six (or maybe an Angel & Spike buddy show spin-off). Angel and Spike leave L.A. together and start over in a new city. Since Joss killed off all the women characters on "Angel" and I really wanted them to have a female foil, I teamed them up with Aggie, Lorne's empath friend from "Over the Rainbow," because I always thought she seemed cool. Only since Angel never actually met Aggie on the show, I went back and wrote a missing episode set during season five (just after "You're Welcome") where Lorne takes the gang to Aggie for help.

I've got ideas for several stories that I haven't written yet that are going to feature some old Buffy characters, including Xander, Faith and Drusilla. Even though they're not written as scripts, I'm trying to keep the tone as close to the actual show as I can, so there's a lot of humor and action and only a very limited amount of romance and/or angst.
