So far this month I've written 30 smut-fics and 1/3 of a cuter Snupin-fic for another challenge.
I have one more smutfic to go + to finish the other fic in the next few days (it was due today...)
The worst part about writing so much smut is that I feel I'm actually getting worse at it... Which makes it kind of bad that I left Severus for last...
I want to thank Lore for giving me an extension on the snupin remix challenge. I've been working on my Ron/Remus smut all day. I seriously didn't think it would take THAT long to write that fic! And now I have to at least write half of the Remus/Severus smut before I go to bed. Because I don't have much time to do it tomorrow... :S
Well, despite all this it's been fun, but remind me next April to NOT do this again (unless I'm not working) ;) I feel work has been neglected this month (not blaming LMoM totally, but partly) and I can feel the stress bubbling inside me! Luckily I only have to be completely stressed out for about 3 more weeks. After that I can go back to whatever I want :D
That is all, for now...
But I really, really, really want to see Alice in Wonderland like NOW!!! and I can't find information on either website on when they are going to show it here. I can't even find the movie on the list for April. WHAT AM I GOING TO DO????
(Thank Merlin they showed Half-Blood Prince on the same day as the rest of the country...haha)
When I signed up for the severusbigbang I signed up with two things, a fic and a song.
I have never really written a song before, but considering the amount of Wizard rock I listen to, I wanted to give it a shot. And the first verse was actually done by the end of June and thing were looking promising. But then the fall came and RL (I soooo wish that that would mean Remus Lupin, but again...no ;( ) became crazy.
I'm on the verge of throwing my saxophone at the next person who asks if I can play some sort of concert! I have been playing for almost every weekend since august, and when I finally have some free time, my energy is completely gone and I just sit with my laptop staring at it... I can't even focus on reading fics, and I really hate that.
I somehow managed to get the fic for the Big Bang done only 5 days after the deadline. Thank you so much sylvanawood and valkyriekat for your patience!
So I only had the song left. The song is written and only needs to be recorded. And I did actually have the time last weekend (believe it or not) and I actually got to record the pianopart and felt really happy about it. But then it stopped again. I tried to record the guitarpart (which is extremely easy btw) but I just realized that I CAN'T PLAY THE GUITAR! The recording picked up on all the mistakes and weird sounds and amplified them in my ears... so I gave that up and decided to just play more keyboardparts instead.
But after "working" with this song for such a long time I am really starting to hate it... I have never liked the lyrics much, but have always planned to fix them a bit before recording the vocals... But changing the lyrics isn't easy... and the more I read them, the more I hate them.
I wanted the song to be humorous when I signed up, but the song that came to me while playing around with my guitar was this really sad Lily/Severus song...
I'm not saying I have dropped the song entirely, but I have dropped it from the Big Bang, so it buys me some more time.
Now to the question/request
What I really have wanted to do for some time now is to start my own Wizard Rock band. I have no idea how much I'm making out of this, but at least I can say that I have a band and "check out mySpace" ;) And I might end up using this song as a part of my Wizard Rock instead if I can write some lyrics that doesn't make me want to vomit...lol
But in order to start a band, I need a really cool name! And considering there's like 600-700 bands already with awesome names, I have a real challenge choosing one for my own.
And that F-list is where you guys come in :D
I mostly want a really cool Ravenclaw related name, or just something funny/silly that spoofs of something from the Harry Potter books. My favourite characters are obviously Snape and Lupin, but I'm also a huge fan of the Weasleys and Luna.
I have some ideas, but I am totally open to new and awesome names :D
If you're not familiar with a lot of the names, check out Wizrocklopedias listings of bands.
So if you have a suggestion for an awesome band name, leave a comment or send me a message. I might make some sort of poll later.
Thank you :D
The thing is, that my life has been extremely hectic lately. I've been working a 120% job and the three wind bands I'm in have had "gigs" in 7 out of 8 weekends in September and October. To top that, I have been stressed about the Snupin Santa and the Severus Big Bang.
Well, I can now inform everyone that I have handed in my Snupin Santa gift :D yaaay meeee!
The Big Bang is finally taking form, and I hope to have it written in a couple of days. I'm hoping that valkyriekat would be so awesome to beta it for me... :D (Only if you have the time and energy, hun!)
So hopefully things will calm down a bit from now on and I can finally start some fics that are just up to me ;) Or sortinghatdrabs ... I miss that community!
Well, enough about that.
Just wanted to let people know, so I don't lose all my LJ friends because of lack of posting ;)
And I almost forgot: I'm finally going to a Wizard Rock show!!!!
I'm going to the Snow Ball in Edinburgh on December 18th and I'm so freaking excited!!!! I get to see and hear The Remus Lupins, Riddle TM, Romilda Vane and the Chocolate Cauldrons, Siriusly Hazza P and The Black Sisters. It's gonna be totally awesome!!!!! I can't wait!
*huge fangirl squeeeeee* :D
I can't remember googling for pictures of Remus Lupin and Ron Weasley and try to make icons out of them being on my to-do-list...
I don't think it's part of my work either...
Or helps me clean the house...
I don't think I need them in my bag for this weekend either...
SNAPEALINA! GO DO SOMETHING USEFUL!
When I write, is when an idea pops into my head and I just have to write it down. So I'm not the most experienced writer either.
But when I found out about the Severus Snape Big Bang Birthday Bash, I signed up at once. I wanted to take part in something organized here on LJ, and was terrified and excited at the same time. Besides, this was in June and the deadlines wasn't until the autumn, so I had quite a lot of time, and the summer vacation was coming up, so I felt that this was a challenge I could handle.
On my way to London this summer, I had a 16 hour journey all by myself, and two fic ideas popped into my head. One of them (Fun on a Flane) was written and posted on the same day, but the other I wrote down the idea in a notebook I carry with me everywhere. I thought about using that idea for the Big Bang.
I was really looking forward to a summer full of writing, but there wasn't much writing this summer... Fun on a Flane was pretty much it... (and a couple of PWP's that are posted anonymous...)
( Then work started again, and everything went craaaaaaazy... )
This is a rant - you have been warned! ;)
I used to have a blog once... It's still there, but I don't use it anymore...
When things annoy me, I did a tendency of being sarcastically funny when I talked about it. And things often annoy me...
Well, at least I thought I was sarcastically funny... not so sure if everybody else agreed, and it wasn’t always very welcome... So I guess I’ve lost a lot of the sarcastic wit I used to have…
Anyway... I did have a tendency of only writing when things annoyed me, because that was when I really was into things. I didn't notice things when they were good, only when they weren’t going my way. So I ended up ranting about a lot about stuff.
My sister once pointed that out for me. She had a friend that had a sort of a "happy-blog" while mine was more an "angry-blog"... That comment really stuck with me for a long time, so I didn't write much after that. I tried to write happy things, but then I also saw that no one really read the blog or commented or anything, so I gave it up...
Then I joined LJ, and I've started writing stuff again. But this time I was planning on using this for my fanfics, and I still intend to keep it that way. However, sometimes stuff happens and I need an outlet for my frustration. I can ask myself what’s the point, because only a few people (maybe just one...) reads this journal. But still it's sometimes good to get things out of your system...
So I'll just do it (and try to not do it too often)
( Carry on reading about my stupid frustrations... )
