- Still trucking along at [ profile] book_las . I got my entry for today in at the last possible minute (muttering "jeez, nobody will ever guess who wrote this one" as I did so. Although I don't actually know who votes, and therefore don't know if anyone knows me from Eve, so who knows.) The competition's down to five; I suspect I'll be out fairly soon, but I'm going to keep doing my best.

- The next [ profile] crossovers_las fic is due pretty soon; I haven't started it yet. The prompt is "When Pigs Fly." The urge to cross something - anything - with Dark Lord of Derkholm is overwhelming, but I don't have any idea what I'd actually do with that. (Well, I could introduce Howl, Sophie, and Calcifer, but that would not fit in 1000 words.) I've been reading and enjoying Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan books, perhaps I can exploit those instead.

- [ profile] i_reversbang fic #1 just hit 10k. Whut. No, seriously, this is over three times its intended length, and I think there's another 2-3k in there AT LEAST.

- I think I know how to end the other reversebang fic now, and it won't get too long, but I don't like it. It isn't that it's necessarily a bad ending, or at least it's the best I can come up with - everything else is a total deus ex machina - but it isn't the kind of ending that's to my tastes. Don't have time to scrap what I have, though, so it will be what it will be.

(Hey, anyone up to beta either of those last-mentioned monstrosities when I wrestle them to something resembling completeness? The long one is cis-girl!Eames/cis-girl!Arthur; the short one is Mal-wakes-up-in-an-empty-dreaming-research-place. Arthur, Eames, and Ariadne all show up.)

- I got my remix_redux assignment; I don't know how much I can say, but I will definitely be writing something in Firefly. This is leading me to the unfortunate discovery that although I liked Firefly, I don't really feel any particular fannish urges towards it. My long-standing meh affair with Joss Whedon continues. Still gonna finish the remix, though.

- You know what I do want to dive into, fandom-speaking? Brick. It is like someone made a high school AU of the entire noir genre, made a film of it, and then cast Joseph Gordon-Levitt (of whom I am apparently a fan now, sorta) as the lead. Only it is not nearly as ridiculous as that makes it sound; it's actually more towards the heart-wrenching. And holy crap, the ladies, I want to write ALL THE THINGS about them. It will have to wait, though.
