Star Trek (again)
Sunday 14th May 2017 1:20 pm

I must have coped back before LJ improved the subject lines in their notifications, but now I'm getting more from DW than LJ, I'm completely confused by which entry "Reply to your entry" is actually referring to and then lose track of which I've replied to (or need to reply to). So for now I am purposely not posting very often. In an ideal world I'd just get everyone to comment on my blog, but that would require some effort to make sure OpenID is working and the whole comment page isn't crappy, and it's just not top of my list. I haven't even put Windows fonts on my new computer yet.

I discovered that between the Horror Channel and Pick, on a weekday morning you can watch Deep Space Nine, Voyager, Star Trek (Original Series) and Stargate Atlantis. I worked from home and my morning went very quickly with all that on. Although they put them all into an hour, so with the exception of TOS, the adverts go on forever. Read more...

Names are important
Monday 12th December 2016 8:25 pm

This is the post that I haven't had time to write, but have been reminded about by The Librarians and reading a whole lot of Stargate Atlantis fic for SGA Secret Santa.

Names are important. What names people use to call each other, more so. This was interesting when I was in LOTR fandom and read and wrote Aragorn, aka man of many names. For the first two years of his life he is Aragorn. For the next eighteen he is Estel. After that it all gets a lot more complicated. Read more...

Ficathon season
Friday 11th September 2015 8:22 pm

It must be autumn... Sign ups for people wanting to write a remix are open in [info]dw_remix, [info]sga-secretsanta has sign ups open and Yuletide has started discussing nominations. I haven't written anything since Remix, so being forced to do it will get me back into the habit.

The trouble I have at the moment is that watching things leads to me watching other things. I have seen Dark Matter, which I think I have finally decided I like (except for the first two cliched episodes and a few boring ones). It had Torri Higginson in a couple of episodes, which made me miss Elizabeth (from Stargate Atlantis). Just as I was thinking about it, [info]sga-secretsanta popped up. With a two a half month writing period, which I'll probably need, if last year is any indication.

I watched some Star Trek: Enterprise, which made me want to watch Quantum Leap. And now Quantum Leap is on my potential nominations list for Yuletide.

Since I was thinking about The Librarian/The Librarians for Yuletide, and getting excited about season 2 starting in November, I watched a few bits. Which made me want to watch Ugly Betty. Which was why I ended up rewatching it earlier this year (I am not rewatching it again).

Been busy
Sunday 21st September 2014 5:36 pm

I haven't posted for a while mainly due to work being really busy. It completely sapped my energy this week, although I did go on a first aid course on Thursday. Friday afternoon was suddenly quiet for a little while and I had to do someone else's work because without that to distract I realised just how tired I was. I could really do with another day on this weekend, but I at least have a three day weekend next week - although I am going to a wedding, so I won't be good for anything on Sunday.

Last weekend was busy. On the Saturday I went to Big Finish Day 6. It was really easy to get to, but really hard to park. I went all round the hotel's tiny car park to find there were no spaces - and you couldn't get out without a token from the hotel. Fortunately the person behind me at the barrier knew the code. I drove around Slough a lot looking for a nearby place to park before I ended up back at the hotel, went to ask them where to park and it turned out that it was ok to park where it say "no unauthorized parking" and threatened you with clamping. The actual thing was all right. I was excited about meeting Peter Purves and he was lovely.

After last weekend when I didn't get much chance to rest, I did this weekend. I have managed to write most of the first draft of my [info]dw_remix fic. And I finished off a Press Gang drabble.

I have been watching a lot of Stargate Atlantis, in order to decide whether to sign up for [info]sga_santa. I have come to the conclusion that I really like Elizabeth and don't really care about watching episodes that she's not in. Which shouldn't have come as a surprise because she was my favourite character, I just had to get used to her not being in the last two seasons when it was on.

The Stargate Atlantis Legacy series
Tuesday 20th May 2014 6:24 pm

A couple of weeks ago I promised I'd write more about this series, which I recently read. It's set after the last episode and the first book came out around the time I was finishing off my fic, which was set around the same time. It meant I was curious about the book, so I bought it and read it once I'd finished my story.

And it bored me. Read more...

TV
Friday 29th September 2006 9:48 pm

I'm feeling really brain-dead now and completely knackered. I've just driven to Tescos, which is ten minutes away. Except that I went with a friend of mine who lives ten minutes in the opposite direction. And then I got confused on the way and we went the back way. In the end I was out for two and a half hours.

There's a war on between the Jamie and the Sarah supporters on the drabble tag, so I've been busy writing Sarah drabbles. There's a list on the SJ comm, so come and play! Since the last time I posted about it I've written Ten/Josh/Sarah, Sarah/Jack/Josh, Harry/Jack, Ten/Josh, Six/Sarah, Sarah/girl!Doctor, Two/Sarah, Eight/Sarah, Seven/Sarah, Sarah/UNIT.

I've been meaning to talk about stuff off the telly all week. Firstly, Atlantis, which is doing terrible things to me. The last one I saw I couldn't work out why Jack & Elizabeth weren't talking about the night they had sex until I remembered that actually, that wasn't in an episode. They did have serious UST going on though. I was thinking to myself, they probably were going to end up sleeping together. Except that she and Sheppard had some serious UST going on, then he was having UST and Teyla and Ronon, who were also having UST with each other. And it reaches the point where I'm wondering if there's anyone on Atlantis that doesn't ship well.

I'm watching Spooks on BBC1 because last year people at work discovered if you're a week ahead on BBC3 you can't talk about it at work because everyone else is a week behind. Plus I was too tired this Monday to stay up late enough to watch it. Anyway, it is exciting and I am enjoying it. Not entirely sure about what they're doing with Ruth and Harry but I suppose we'll have to wait and see about that one. I like Ros in that she's quite different from everyone else. Plus she's played by Hermione Norris, who I can quite hate, at least not yet.

I'm off to Collectormania in Milton Keynes tomorrow. There's no-one I want to see there, or at least no-one famous. I'm going to see a friend of mine from uni whose parents live there, and I don't think I've seen him in over a year. Sunday I might keel over after a two hour driving lesson followed by swimming.

Lazy Sunday
Sunday 12th February 2006 8:32 pm

I entirely confused myself this morning by glacing at my inbox. I had a message with the subject Re: Joe Flanigan and another one with the subject hot hot hot! and my mind put those together. The second one was from Emma about the weather, so what confused me is that she doesn't even know who Joe Flanigan is and certainly wouldn't be telling me he's hot because he's not her type at all. Probably.

I got entirely distracted this weekend by making myself a Life on Mars icon, and today submitting three postcards to the SGA Flashfic postcard secrets challenge.

I have got my Jack/Liz fic up to v4 but I'm still not convinced about most of it which is not good. It's not due till the 3rd, though, so I could leave it for a bit and try and work out some plot for my Remix fic (why did I decide to expand on something?)

Pegasus One
Tuesday 7th February 2006 10:52 pm

I went to an Atlantis convention at the weekend - which was made more interesting by having the flu. I've done a quick page with a few photos http://www.paranoidangel.me.uk/peg1pics.html - I should point out that the text is for my dad's benefit and the photos together come to 328k.

Edit: Dad has just reminded me I have a flickr account! So all my photos of the guests (apart from the blurry ones) are there, unedited (sorry Saz).

Atlantis fic writing
Monday 30th January 2006 8:56 pm

I decided the other week, because I am completely mad, to set myself the challenge of writing 20,000 words this year. Something is defined as written when it is posted up somewhere. So anything I've previously done most of the work on and just needs a bit (lot) of betaing that actually gets finished counts. And hopefully motivates me to finish. Like the one that celebrates its third birthday in April. And is only 1000 words long (although the first draft was 150, so it's grown a bit). As I've already posted one this year I decided it counted, so here's a pretty picture to illustrate my progress (with a different coloured bar to differentiate it from my reading my height in books progress):

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
3,851 / 20,000
(19.3%)

No idea whether 20,000 words is a good amount to pick, mind you. Although if I average 5000 words a fic (which I seem to be at the moment), that's only four stories. At the rate of one every three months, which sounds a do-able challenge.

Because, as has already been well established I am mad, I have signed up for the Free Your Mind challenge/ficathon thingy and have to write Jack/Elizabeth (that would be the Stargate kind, not the Pirates of the Caribbean). By the 3rd March. Um. Argh? And is there anyone crazy enough to beta it?

I did start a Weir/Caldwell fic the other week. I got three paragraphs in, and although they were very pretty paragraphs, it just wasn't going anywhere and I concluded that it just wasn't going to happen. Which is a handy thing to find out.

I am partway through writing Shep/Weir flirting for Langford U, which is currently at 2000 words and needs more plot - due to having eight characters in a scene and I've only focused on two of them so far. I'm only on the first draft, though, so based on the last two I wrote, the finished one should be more than 4000 words.

On Saturday night, at about 1am (so technically it was Sunday morning) I had a slightly (very?) crack!fic like idea of Sheppard in our universe accidentally swapping places with the Langford version. With twice the UST as people try to figure out what's going on and how to get them back. I'm sort of tempted to write it but I'd also have to figure out what's going on, how they got there and therefore how to get them back. Which I haven't so far. But I've imagined (and then forgotten most of) lots of interesting conversations.

It’s all about Stargate
Wednesday 25th January 2006 10:03 pm

The most recent episode of Stargate - Ripple Effect. When [censored] walked into the room full of [censoreds] all I could think was that he was probably thinking "I'm in heaven and it's full of Samantha's". But much squee over the credits. It's quite handy to know the actor's names.

The last episode of Atlantis I saw - Inferno - was it just me or did they miss a whole load from the end? I mean the team didn't die (duh) but how did they get home? I did like Sheppard and Weir's conversation near the beginning, that was quite funny.

I followed a link from the SGA newsletter to discover that the Documentation challenge on SGA Flashfiction has got some really excellent entries for it.

So much so that I ended up inspired to write one of my own - it's sort of a story anyway: Mission Form Checklist

Reading my height in books
Monday 23rd January 2006 10:19 pm

I went home this weekend, which means I came back with a whole load of food and some books. Saturday dad went to the OU in Milton Keynes, so he got up early and consequently we were all awake. Except the cat, who was taken to bed by mum. So we were all wrecked on Saturday.

Saturday was the Blakes 7 Dorset group Christmas party, which was good fun. Although I could have quite happily fallen asleep in front of Hitchhiker's. I could have quite happily fallen asleep in front of Rosemary and Thyme later on as well. As it was cold the cat decided to come to bed with me and slept all night, despite having slept all day (it's a hard life being a cat, obviously). A warm cat on one side is no substitute for quilt on the other, but he did wake me up from a bad dream, so he was forgiven. And also didn't take over too much.

Me and dad had an argument about the CD drive in the Atlantis episode Michael that involved watching the relevant bit of the episode three times, and we still disagree. He thinks Trip just took the CD out with no trouble at all, I think it did involve the usual pulling you have on laptops (well, Dell ones at least, which is what they have on Atlantis). This did, though, lead to a discussion about how they were powering them and just how many they had in the place anyway.

I also made good progress on reading my height in books. I read the latest Seven & Ace Doctor Who on the train on the way home and the other half on the way back. And I read Three Men in a Boat while I was home (which was really funny, if confusing because he keeps going off on a tangent, so you never quite know whether he's talking about that trip or another one). So I am now 4.1cm into my 155cm.

Atlantis ship names
Thursday 5th January 2006 10:17 pm

Something that occurred to me ages ago but I had forgotten all about until I was surfing around and was reminded about. In Atlantis, Sheppard/Weir is also known as Sparky, to save it being Shweir *sudder* Those sort of names are only good when they're funny (like McShep, which I find funny for some reason).

Only trouble is, Sparky is one of Rygel's nicknames in Farscape, given to him by Crichton. So I think all the ships should have a Rygel nickname. There's even a site with them all listed: Crichtonisms ( could only remember four: Sparky, Spanky, Buckwheat and Napoleon XVI). Maybe if we run out, we can go for other character's nicknames, there must be more than there are pairings, even when you get to multi-ones.

This did completely confuse me the other day when I was reading sga_newsletter and they mentioned a new community with spanking in the name. It was referring to, you know, spanking. Except that my first though was 'ooh, I wonder what pairing that is.'

Multi-shipping is good
Tuesday 3rd January 2006 11:04 pm

Dad's set up a test blog for WordPress 2.0 and it looks really good. If someone just sorts out Live+Press I'd switch like a shot. Which leads nicely to the subject of Atlantis...

I'm not going to spoil any episodes past Sky. I was going to give the name of the episodes, but anyone who's been at a con with me knows what I'm like with episode names). I came to the conclusion during Epiphany (the one with the beard) that I actually ship Sheppard/everyone, not just the three in my icon. So to test this theory I read a John/Ronon fic, liked it, could totally see that. But, I thought to myself, I couldn't do Sheppard/Ford. Except I read one and I totally can.

All is fine until tonight's episode where I saw:
Caldwell/Weir, McKay/Weir, McKay/Sheppard, John/Teyla, Carson/Rodney(!), Teyla/Ronon, John/Ronon, Weir/Lorne (now I know who he is!)
Er, yeah. I don't like Teyla/Ford (even though I've written it, but it was in an AU, so doesn't count), although I'm quite like the idea of Teyla/Ronon. And Elizabeth/Ronon as well.

So all in all it was a good episode if you ship anything in particular, and a bad episode if you ship anything in particular, depending on how good you are at interpreting/explaining. I found it a really fun episode just spotting the ships and being all gleeful about all of them. It's so much more fun!

This is possibly something of a reaction against some of the stuff I've been reading where people are complaining about particular ones. I had enough of that in Stargate and I can't be doing with it. I'm not caring too much about people talking about episodes as well. I'm just happy to go 'that was fun' or 'that was crap'.

Biscuits
Saturday 10th December 2005 4:44 pm

I had a whole plan of things I was going to do Friday night, which I completely scuppered by overdosing on biscuits. Technially speaking it was the egg in them that was the problem and I didn't actually know what my tolerance to egg is. Now I know: 2 biscuits. Which is higher than my milk tolerance (which is the equivalent of 1 biscuit) but is really annoying.

What didn't help was working my way through the different Atlantis Au communities - there does seem to a lot of Atlantis AU going on, and I actually like reading it for some strange reason. Anyway, I really liked Langford U, which is set in a university in Nebraska. Which sounds like it's up in the Arctic Circle for some reason, but isn't.

This morning, after beating mum's score on Screwball on the Dairy Free Forum after three attempts, I played with a mock-up website. All I wanted to do was add a row in a table. Which really shouldn't be that complicated. I got really confused with all the tables going on in Nvu so ended up in TextPad, and got myself in such a mess that I ended up starting the table from scratch and pasting the relevant info in. I can't decide whether converting it into LJ-speak is going to be easier or harder.

I should really do the Rotaract stuff I've been putting off half the week (two and a half weeks in some cases), otherwise I'll just put them off all of next week too.

Stargate
Thursday 8th December 2005 12:10 am

I'm enjoying Atlantis more than Stargate this season, not just because I have three ships on Atlantis and none on Stargate, since they both revolved around Jack 🙂 But also because Stargate makes me want to watch Farscape. I get to the end of an episode of Atlantis and think 'That was great, I can't wait for the next one' (except for Trinity, but the I can't wait for the next one bit was still there). Whereas I get to the end of Stargate and think 'Ben Browder was great, I really want to watch Farscape now'. Which is not really the idea. Now if they'd just cancel Stargate and bring back new Farscape I'd be just as more happy (assuming big denial at the end of PK Wars, of course - it's not just a river in Egypt, it's a way of life).

I also realised the thing I really miss about Stargate, as scary as the Ori and the Wraith are (naming them Steve and Bob notwithstanding), is the part where suddenly someone flashes their eyes and you get that sudden moment of fear as you go 'OMG, he's a Goa'uld'. I can't help feeling that the more we find out about the Wraith the less scary they get. The Ori get scarier, at least so far (I'm so not getting into the religion discussion about them, though, that has the potential to go to bad places).

This post brought to you by why am I more awake at 11pm than I have been all day? Usually by now I'm asleep on my feet (or asleep in bed, to be precise). This post also brought to you by I've just watched Atlantis and it was good.

The News is Broken
Monday 28th November 2005 11:12 pm

I've just been watching Broken News which continues to be funny. Usually I tape it and watch Shakespeare but 15 minutes of Johnny Vegas turned out to be all I could take. The only annoying thing about Broken News is that you can't concentrate on what's being said and the ticker tapes that go across the bottom. The money and sports channels are even worse. Most memorable joke was right at the start:

"...destroyed four storeys, including the latest JK Rowling..."

I also loved that they as well as looking at tomorrows/yesterdays papers they also looked at the obituries, the crosswords, the sudokos and the horoscopes.

I managed to concentrate for long enough tonight to get the Sheppard/Teyla part of my Five Things fic up to v4. It's a stick-fighting scene, so I looked up some screencaps to describe the gym and I remembered how much I love the place. It's so pretty. And I love the whole stick fighting thing. I'd love to try it, even though it's mostly just spinning and hitting each other's sticks - much like lightsabre fighting but with a weapon in each hand.

Tomorrow at work I get to try and match up 511 questionnaires with 442 bits of data (or technically speaking, the other way round). Which is going to be a complete nightmare, except that I quite like it in some sort of masochistic way. Perhaps because it's a bit of a logic problem. Plus I quite like playing with data in excel.

Bunnies and QuizCall
Saturday 22nd October 2005 10:56 pm

It comes to something that 11 o'clock is a late night these days, and 10 o'clock is more usual. It feels like Sunday today, as I had Friday off. I saw Wallace & Gromit, which was very funny. And had bunnies in it, which were very sweet. I also found Lois McMaster Bujold's Falling Free in Borders, yay! Borders are doing £5 off vouchers if you spend £20 in the first two weeks of November, which really, really tempting.

I think my dad's addicted to QuizCall. He messaged me to tell me they had a matches game on. My digital TV is up and working and I watched Atlantis on it last night. Which isn't nearly as funny as watching it on my parents slightly crappy temporary TV which cuts off the edges, so you're actually watching Stargate Tlanti according to the credits. Starring some bloke called Vid Wlet.

I was good today and did some writing. I'm technically on the second version of my Five Things fic, although I've rewritten Jack/Daniel and McKay/Sheppard a bit. So today I completely rewrote Sheppard/Weir. Hmm. Could take a while. I also discovered a whole section on Wraithbait that it would actually fit it, which is quite cool.

Cross stitch and Atlantis
Wednesday 5th October 2005 7:35 pm

I actually got my cross stitch out last night for the first time in a while - I've been tired and on the backstitch, which is never as interesting. But I wanted to watch Sunday's Midsomer Murders and it's slow, so needs me doing something else at the same time.

Last night I dreamt we had a company day out (although there was no-one in my dream I actually knew) and we had to split into teams to complete a cross stitch. The teams somehow managed to change into 2-people ones, although I have no idea how two people are supposed to complete one cross stitch at the same time. I spent a fair bit of the dream thinking about this. I managed to get out of the cross stitching though on the basis that I did it in the evenings anyway. I ended up helping two blokes who didn't really know what they were doing. It obviously got a bit strange(r) though because it started involving candles.

A meme, from Melli and Avon:

What are you working on? List your current writing projects (fanfic and/or original). Include a small segment describing the plot.

1. A long Gilraen/Arathorn one current called The Tale of Arathorn and Gilraen. In the Tale of A&A it's not stated explicitly that Gilraen loved Arathorn when they married, although he loves her. So I started from that premise and worked out reasons why she married him and didn't remarry and ended up writing the story of their lives together.

2. The HASA Tag Team Challenge fic that was due, er, last October. Never mind. Definitely untitled, and un-worked on by either of us for quite a while. It stars Aragorn and Faramir when they're King and Steward respectively but before Aragorn marries Arwen. It is not either serious or sensible at any point.

3. A Lord of the Rings fic I started two and a half years ago and haven't worked on for a while either. The plot is currently a secret to all but three of the people on my friends list who have beta'ed/read it at various points.

4. A have a file for this even though I haven't actually written anything, merely photocopied the relevant but of the Silm and forgotten the plot. In it, Elrond introduces his sons to the sunrise and explains it. It turns out he finds out something else is going on with his sons, if I could just remember what.

5. Because I still mean to write it one day, a Sam/Jack slash piece. Partly because it defies classification.

Following on from the other week when I wrote an Atlantis snippet I was trying to do a McKay piece and got sidetracked by trying to do a similar thing with Sheppard/Weir and accidentally writing Sheppard/Teyla instead. I could almost do a Five Things fic with Sheppard pairings (although given I ship Sheppard/McKay, Sheppard/Weir and Sheppard/Teyla, as well as Sam/Jack and Jack/Daniel, that makes five...)

Happy New Year
Tuesday 4th October 2005 7:50 pm

(Although I started writing this yesterday, so I'm technically a bit late with that, never mind)

You couldn't make it up: Drunken prank led to armed siege

I had no intention of seeing Serenity. I've seen 20mins of Firefly and that was enough. But there was an article about it in the latest SFX that mentioned they go to a remote place called Maidenhead. I mentioned it to Rotaract and there was a general concesus we'd have to check out this 'Maidenhead' place. (A small note - Maidenhead is a town not far from here. One of our members is going out with an ex-member of Maidenhead Rotaract).

I discovered today this WordPress blog has the best thing ever - search. We were having a Myers-Briggs discussion and I knew I had what I was on my blog somewhere but couldn't remember which month it was. But I searched for it and found it.

I'm really bad with names, it takes me a long time to learn them. For some reason I find it much easier if I see them written down - although if isn't pronounced as it's written that doesn't help. I struggled with who Weiss in Alias was for two series. I was seeing it written when people talked about him and assumed it was pronounced Veiss, and I couldn't remember anyone with that name.

I've seen someone called Halling mentioned paired with Beckett (Carson, not Sam, which doesn't help). I assumed it was the woman from Duet whose name begins with a C or K, but no, turns out Halling is a man. Is he actually on the series? Admittedly, it's taken me a series and a half to work out who Zelenka is.

I'm doing really badly on episode titles as well. I keep seeing episode tag fics, where they'll say it's set post 'Hot Zone' for example. Which is great. Except that doesn't really narrow it down very much. Which is why I started putting an episode guide on my site - I need it for me.

The way Lost introduces you to a character each episode is really handy because I'm learning a name per episode. I think I've learnt the same number now as I would have in the entire series. I did confuse myself though, as I temporarily named Sawyer, 'that guy' but then got confused and thought Adam was 'that guy'. I think the only ones I have temporary names for now are Adam, the pregnant girl who I think was Tess in Roswell High, that guy who's been in everything, the kid, the kid's dad, the dog, the one with silly hair. I've even managed to learn Shannon without her having an episode yet, which is pretty good going for me.

After the two-part starter for the latest Spooks series I realised there was a new character and I should make sure I remember his name. Needless to say I'd forgotten it a week later and I still can't remember. It's only one name and four episodes later it could be anything. Although the other week I couldn't for the life of me work out who this Fiona Adam was referring to was.

Atlantis
Monday 26th September 2005 7:54 pm

In last week's Supernanny she commented that to the mother everything seemed 'this big because she was tired' which is pretty much how I felt this morning. I got sick of my dinner last night for being so dry and I desperately wanted some normal bread and as a result everything little niggle seemed like a major insurmountable crisis.

I'm not sure what it was that happened between then and now (specially as I was at work!) but it's all seeming a lot smaller this evening.

I read an Atlantis fic the other day, Day Break ,which suddenly made me believe in the Sheppard/McKay pairing. I think it was entirely due to one comment, where McKay off-handedly mentions that Sheppard is in McKay's meeting being Sheppard's pretty. And I thought that seemed exactly like something McKay would say. So now I can see Shep/McKay, Shep/Teyla and Shep/Weir. And I thought shipping Sam/Jack and Jack/Daniel was complicated.

Before I know it I found myself writing a Shep/McKay fic while I was writing a database this afternoon (which explains why my database was full of errors). It's fairly drafty but for once I don't care - it might make it into a longer fic at some point, I might never do anything with it again, but here it is anyway. Let's see if I can remember how to do this this simultaneous LJ-cut thing...
