Um. Note to those I coerced into playing penknife
's "I Never..." challenge... those would be due April 5th.
Which I just realized is TOMORROW. O_O (Boy, I'm a smart one.)
And it's snowing a very wet snow and I had outdoor recess duty today. Blah.
Also, had a story idea on the way to work but a day of math ed teching drove it from my brain and it makes me sad. I need a tape recorder or something.
BTW, the summers_fling
fics I've read thus far are BEYOND amazing. Just... really wow
. Especially the one for me! Bearings
. OMG, it's got a very young (set in 1985), *blind* (as in pre-ruby quartz) Scott Summers and ERIK LEHNSHERR and BRAILLE.
Yes, you heard that combination correctly. Also, there is a mention of an Atari screen. How much LOVE is that?
I wish I had more time to just READ these fics, but I do have to, you know, write another story. =P Plus there's the whole have-a-life thing. (A what now?)
I think, after yuletide
, it's safe to say that I ADORE ficathons, despite the last-second panic. Which, you know, is my own fault for apparently working best under pressure.
Here's hoping that works for my "I Never..." fic. Heh. >_<
I'm incredibly happy with how my summers_fling
fic turned out, given the amount of flailing I did over it and how much I HATED it on Sunday afternoon--you can ask my mother, who got to hear how much it sucked when I was helping make dinner. She has no idea what I was talking about, but was very sympathetic. zoe_chan
put up with my AIM flailing with the usual grace and minimal eye-rolling, complete with statements of "you do not suck." ;)
Also, I'm a geek, but I think I'll save the reason why for another post.
Also, have fallen deeply and madly in love with Superboy. Dammit, Kon. And Tim. But I already loved Tim, so this is not news. My Kon love isn't news now, either, not to poor zoe_chan
. Although I blame Katt for this *anyway* because she's the Super-Fan, and I've always been a Bat-Fan. And I blame my Tim-love on zoe_chan
, because... well. Why not? ;) (And I thought I was *SAVING* my professions of geekiness?)
On this note, I have a rec of IMMENSE AWESOMESAUCE POWER. LIKE OMG. I flailed at zoe_chan
over IM all night when I read it (and stayed up until 2:30 to do so), even though she was sleeping, and I emailed Katt and. Yeah. I think I had multiple geekgasms. (Which is a term you KNOW I've been dying to say.)The Way I Was Made
It is Superman Returns
meets the Teen Titans v. 3 (DC comicverse). And it's GOOD. REALLY good. It's adult, and slash, but seriously awesome in so many ways. Basic idea? Jason White is Kon-El.
No, *so* not joking. Complete with Lex Luthor DNA. You'd think it'd be crack, and it IS, but it's the GOOD crack.
I know enough of each verse to make loud, high-pitched noises when I recognized things--like BART, and STEPH, and the shades of Jason Todd that Jason White exhibits, and the incredible mention of the Narrows made me fall over because that makes it Batman Begins
verse, as well. GUH. This is like the crossover to end all crossovers, AND IS WELL-WRITTEN.
AND it does right by Richard White, which we all know is MAJOR for me (or we should know). Because Jason has three dads, but he only calls Richard "dad."
The author's Jason voice is amazing, and so Kon-like that at first it's a stretch to think of little Jason White in SR as this college student with such blazing sarcasm and wit, but then it all makes sense
.Calculus isn't the same as 2 + 2 = 4, though, and Jason's not too sure how he's going to take care of his math requirement without bribery and blackmail.
Remarks like that are his inner Luthor coming out, which is a big joke with his dad, but Clark doesn't really tend to laugh about it very much. When Clark is all uptight, Jason reminds him that he's a genetically created baby, who was implanted in his mom while she was kidnapped on assignment. It took three men and two women just to get him into college.
Jason's bound to be a little warped; Clark should just accept it.
DUDE. Jason. Kon-El. MADE OF WIN. (I wish *I* had thought of this.) =D
Plus, hello, there is Tim/Jason-who-is-Kon, which, you know, is like icing on the cake.
One of my students from when I taught sixth grade last year has my MSN and her screenname is currently "Dang my extremely loud internal monologue!" Oh, sweety, I love how much you are a geek. ♥
So... any plot bunnies want a home? Hit me with 'em.
(Wait, what am I doing? I must be mad.)
