a game & some upcoming fic
the arch of the eyebrows gives it away
I saw this game on musesfool's lj a little while ago but had no brainpower or time to play. I think the gist was - dream up a TV show, cast five actors, and then share the details.

I dreamt this one up last night in bed: Chiwetel Ejiofor and Gina Torres are the reigning couple, following some kind of coup or governmental overthrow some years ago. They've been ruling with intelligence, and some things have changed for the better. Some have not. Suddenly, a man no one's heard of, Hugh Laurie, shows up, claiming that the couple's rise to power involved nefarious means, and that he is in a position to offer a more honest rule. Suddenly, the country is a dynamic mess. Jensen Ackles and Vera Farmiga are two patriots? spies? agents? whose paths keep crossing.

Man, that was fun. Who else wants to play?

I've been immensely busy, and while most of the stress is job-related, some of it is about the fact that I'll be traveling by myself in a few weeks, and . . . I get nervous about stupid stuff. But! As if to compensate, my desire to write has come on strong lately. Here's a list of stuff I'm thinking about/working on:
(1) scenes eleven and twelve of Ben and Dean
(2) "Generation" - the bigbang story that I had to drop because it was getting too long and involved
(3) "The Taming of the You-Know-Who" - my actual bigbang, which is in dire need of edits
(4) birthday ficlets for people
(5) a funny pre-series casefile, where the boys have to take care of something while John's away
(6) an AU where John lets Sam go to Stanford, with the understanding that Sam will hunt with him and Dean over summer breaks
(7) a season 2 story set between the two halves of the finale
(8) an idea my mother, of all people, gave me, involving video games

I'd play but its way past my bedtime...and everything that comes to mind is J2. Heh. Makes for pleasant dreams at least.

Dude, it's not stupid to be worried about travelling by yourself. Before I met GM and had the spawn I did a heap of travelling alone. It's exhilarating but a little daunting at times.

Yay. Fic. You have no idea how much I'm looking forward to Big Bang. Fic. Music. Art. Woot!

Aw, thanks. And share some of those dreams!

I think the real reason I'm so nervous is because my mother is nervous for me. And also that I get sick every time I go. But.

I still haven't edited my bigbang! My posting date is late enough that I'm pretending it's not at all urgent.

Sounds like a great tv idea ;)

It's understandable to worry about travelling by oneself (is this for work or fun may I ask? Cause for work I presume easier 'cause they set stuff up for you and if for fun...well I am certain it'll be fun!) - it is more daunting 'cause one has to be a little more alert/on guard than when you are with other people. But it's also fabulous. Please yourself, all the time. You get talking to people you never ever would if you were travelling with someone else. Plus there are always books (or ipods) to entertain on those dull long flights. Enjoy it! Report back.

All the fic sounds interesting, I can't wait to hear it! Esp. your big bang, I saw that in the list and thought, man who's is that, that's great, and I am thrilled that it's yours

I really like the TV idea! Do you have one?

I'm traveling neither for work nor for fun - it's for family. Ahhhhhhh, I shouldn't worry this much.

I'm totally looking forward to the bigbangs! Yours sounded so interesting and so devastating.

I will think about my tv idea! (Not got one at the mo).

Oh family travel. Well I am sure you will be fine though it is understandably daunting. You may develop a new taste for it, you never know!

Aw thank you, I am glad it sounds interesting. Devastating? Hmm, hee, actually I have just had a big worry it needs to be *funnier* with the bodyswap angle (read a couple of excellent funny ones recently), oh well I got time to rework I suppose! (sometime...squeezed in).

Cannot wait to see yours, seriously. What a great idea! ;)
