For the past year or so (wow!) I've been hacking away at a hefty LoM/DW Sam!Master crossover longfic because the concept of Sam!Master is something I can't ever get over. So far, I'm at 29K words (BIGGER WOW) and still going strong (BIGGEST WOW???) even though I'm probably only about halfway done (WHAT HSFGSLFS). During this whole process, I've done a bunch of doodling/reference art for myself and while I was waiting to either post it with the finished fic or not at all, [personal profile] ferntree was an enabling sweetheart and talked me into sharing this particular image in LoM chat the other day.

This is meant to be an ensemble "cover" type image of the four principal characters in the fic (minus the antagonist, OR IS IT AAHAHAHA), mostly to INSPIRE(!!!!) myself rather than serve any real purpose sjghaks this is my working method, okay. Fic excerpts included because I've promised myself not to post any chapters before I'm finished with the entire thing, but do you realize how hard it's been to stop myself. (Also, while on the subject, I think I owe it to [personal profile] margo_kim to mention that she's the greatest beta ever. ♥)

Uh. Right. Fanart.

WHOA, I've been productive lately. Some of this might have to do with telling Court to lock me out of my own Tumblr for weeks at a time and slowly tricking myself into thinking that there is nothing fun on the internet except for writing, but shhh. I'd been really falling behind on schoolwork and script pages, but ever since I had a talk with one of my screenwriting profs, I've been inspired to take his advice and sit down at the same time every night and get around five pages out -- so far, it's been working (even if sometimes I only crank out three or four, um), and I'm finally starting to catch up! WOOHOO!

Annnd, better yet, I've been tackling my LoM/DW longfic and doing a bunch of edits that I'd been putting off, and now I think I'm abooouuut ready to move forward into EXCITING THINGS (aka tardistardistardistardistardistardis). I'm really happy I decided in advance to not post any chapters up until I'd finished and polished, since now I can go back and embed shit and look clever when really I'm just incredibly slow and indecisive kajfhks. But yeah, I'd been leaving that sitting pretty on GooDocs for a while, and now I've moved it into WriteRoom and am WORKING LIKE A DEMON. ...Not that that means. Especially fast for me. BUT STILL. WORKING. CONSISTENTLY. ON A LONG PROJECT. WHAT IS THIS MADNESS.

Excerptttt )

Oh, also picked up my tablet again and so I've been sketching too??? Talented peeps on Plurk (aka Ryu and Brenda) mentioned somewhere that to practice properly, you need to draw things you aren't good at, and that kind of indirectly shamed me into wanting to try that skjfksaf SO BEEN TRYING FULL BODIES? AND SHADING? Badly, but trying nonetheless.

BASICALLY, TURNING OVER A NEW LEAF; LIFE IS GOOD; ETC. ETC. FEELS GOOD, MAN.

Now, to get myself a new internship... 8|a

So today I had a nice night's rest (for once) and then replied to some LoM/DW crossover-related comments and was basically like "Yeah, I love Sam/Gene even more than Doctor/Master now! Pretty crazy, huh?" And then my brain apparently was like "OH NO YOU DIN'T" because then took a shower and went back to my bed and got sleepy and napped for one single hour and I had one of the most vivid fucking dreams I have ever experienced.

And it was Doctor/Master. With me as the Doctor.

AND IT WENT KIND OF LIKE THIS. )

And then, suddenly --

I drifted awake.

And I was like.

That. Was. Magnificent.

And then I wrote all that up before I forgot and also scribbled down some notes in a nearby notebook, and then I glanced at them later and I was like "GEE RANDOM DOCTOR WHO DREAM SCRIBBLINGS, THIS SURE REMINDS ME OF......... ............OH MY GOD I AM THE DOCTOR."

No, seriously, I might have to write this fic. Like. Scene-for-scene. Just because... brain, what even. and talk about method writing the Doctor's POV jesus christ

and apparently this was so noteworthy that I am properly updating my journal for the first time in a million years kjahs

I haven't posted for a while in this, and when I do, it seems to generally be fic or other fan contributions, but just in case that anyone still wants to follow me...

I have moved to hughes @ Dreamwidth!

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ADD ME ON DW! After getting amped up for Dreamwidth in the light of LJ's idiocy, I'm actually aiming to post a bit more to my journal, so, um... yes! It'll probably still be as incoherent as it was in the good ol' days, but there you go!

I'll also still be crossposting everything to Livejournal for the sake of ease -- fic and fan contributions included, so LJ users, never fear! You won't miss out on anything from my... all-important... self. Um.

On an added note, you can also find me on hughes @ tumblr 24/7, so feel free to add me there too if... you don't mind gratuitous postings of Dean/Cas Supernatural and Sam/Gene Life on Mars.

...Hughes is my new thang now. Idk. IS IT A DECENT HANDLE? At least now people won't confuse La Cidiana as Laci Diana, right dsgsalihdg

OH MY GOD

WHAT

THIS ERIN PERSON IS POSTING TO LJ

WHAT

...

HELLO, ALL! God, it's been nearly half a year since I've posted, hasn't it? Partly because I have been LEGITIMATELY BUSY WITH... LIFE THINGS (school, writing, full-time internship, south america vacation, comic con, concert, what have you), and partly because I have been illegitimately busy with... fandom things.

Bottom line, these are my fandoms rn:

- Life on Mars
- Doctor Who
- Top Gear
- Life on Mars
- Life on Mars
- SAM TYLER AND GENE HUNT GETTING IT ON VIOLENTLY oh wait same show

FFFFFFFUCK YOU BBC I held out so long on anglophiling, man. So bloody long. And yes, Top Gear is a fandom. Don't. even. talk. to me okay this is my life now.

But yeah. Life on Mars. MAN I REMEMBER when people on my f-list were ranting about it when it first came out, you know, FIVE YEARS AGO, and I was like WHAT IS THIS WEIRD THING WITH THAT SQUISHY-FACED MASTER GUY AND AN OLD CAR LOL IT LOOKS DUMB

and now

now sam tyler is my puppycakes and I want to cuddle him to sleep every night

uhhh MAN MY INCOHERENCY HASN'T GOTTEN MUCH BETTER, HAS IT? Anyhoo, I've been sadly behind on RP things, but I've been good about writing! I'm uh kind of completely obsessed with the whole Sam!Master concept right now so I have about. 8300 words of that. so far. and lots of pages of planning sfjkhaksfhja it is my baby project right now. IT IS THE SEXIEST IDEA EVER OK and although there are about a million fics written for it, I've only found one that fully Meets My Needs. So. Clearly, I must take matters into my own hands. :|a

AND ALSO YES. Internship. Suffice to say that between the last entry and now, I interned for several months at a comic book company and for this summer, I've interned at a cable television network and edited web clips for them WHICH HAS ALL BEEN VERY AMAZING AND EXCITING and maybe I'll go into more detail in an f-locked post. 8D

Man. LJ-posting. This is making me horribly nostalgic and weepy and NO MORE PAID ACCOUNT LOOK AT MY SAD SIX LITTLE ICONS.

Oh right and Dean/Castiel. Supernatural is the kingpin of fandoms that stick in your brain and I am so bad for Dean/Cas right now and forever skjfhajksfa. SCREAM I SAW THEM AT COMIC CON. I SAW THEM I SAW THEM I PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT JENSEN ACKLES WAS A MYTHICAL UNICORN OF BEAUTY BUT HE ACTUALLY EXISTS THIS IS AMAZING TO ME

....and OH GOD NATHAN MOOD ICON. NATHAN. I STILL LU. SOBBBBB heroes is still a gaping wound only bandaged by new beautiful wonderfulness.

I sound drugged up BYE GUYS

wow I haven't posted to my LJ in ages but finally... FINALLY, I found something worth posting.

WHY. GOD. WHY.

seriously I am. I expected. so bad but this. is just. .....sob.

UHHH IN OTHER NEWS. MY LIFE RIGHT NOW. UM. Basically, just started going back to school at LMU, still super into Heroes despite my soul hurting and also... sort of... GETTING INTO DOCTOR WHO? Been watching a ton of it and I kind of want to musebox Ten somewhere even though I feel like a supaposer. ;A; ALSO I recently reworked my resume and submitted it for an internship I was v. interested in and... THEY GOT BACK TO ME THE NEXT DAY? WOOHOO. I feel like an idiot since they called in the morning and I didn't wake up until... 4, so when I called them back the day was already over even though they'd said today would be ideal for an interview so. Sob. Hope I didn't just screw myself over. D8 They said they'd call back this week to schedule an interview for next week but. YOU NEVER KNOW. I'll definitely be following up on this. :|a ...and I also hope I didn't come off as an idiot over the phone. Ggghhhhdkfjs ...although on the bright side, the extra time will give me a chance to get some... decent interview clothes, of which I recently realized I have none. :|

ANYWAY YES. LJ POST. CAN CHOOSE A MOOD AGAIN. AND DO THINGS. AAAAA. Also, right, another update: apped BUZZ LIGHTYEAR to [livejournal.com profile] damned. And got in. [livejournal.com profile] nest will be my Woody. This is going to be glorious.

BUT FIRST I need to post to Elle&L and, you know, prove I can multitask and stuff. ...which I think time has proven I can't BUT YOU NEVER KNOW UNLESS YOU WORK ON IT. OR something. I am incoherent.

....HI, EVERYONE. 8D

LOOK AT ME USE LIVEJOURNAL SINCE PLURK IS DOWN \o/ [livejournal.com profile] murasaki_kaze I KEPT MY WORD.
SORT OF.


Anyway, I meant to get up early today but I think I literally turned my alarm off because my brain couldn't compute that yeah, I did need to get up early today. At least that's better than not having remembered turning off my alarm at all, which has happened to me before. 8( Oh well; my registration date's on Monday, so if I go in early then, I should be okay?

Also should register with the Disabilities Office, see if I can get priority registration in the future or anything else. >>

IN OTHER NEWS Thursday is Show Day, which means Supernatural vague spoilers ) and Fringe vague spoilers ) also I (not seriously) considered how apping Fringe!Peter would make there be THREE LANDEL'S PETERS LOL and more seriously considered apping Walter as a doctor, since come on, that'd be fantastic. TOO BAD I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE ENOUGH. T_T

Also, holy shit do I need to catch up with House I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY NEW EPISODES SINCE THE MENTAL HOSPITAL ONE OR MAYBE THE ONE AFTER. YEAH. SHIT. I keep on shielding my eyes/muting whenever the commericals come on during my Fringe DVR. T___T I'm actually pretty damn unspoiled so LET'S KEEP IT THAT WAY until Court comes home and we can marathon like it's 2005~

Annnnd I've been fairly good with posting lately! Which means I'm about to go sylarpost. AND THEN READ APPLICATIONS. And then... maybe I should head over to school and edit, although... goddammit I need to find my hard drive's power cord ;; KIND OF IMPORTANT.

But yes. YAY, LJ POST~ Oh and. My new headphones. They are beautiful. 8D ALSO FINALLY HAVE CASTIEL ICONS WOOOO

AND. THANKS TO [livejournal.com profile] tinted_glass GOING TO A BSB CONCERT WITH HER ON JUNE 26 AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
