Well, it's 2011. Guys, I still have to pause to remember it's not 2009, this is going to be hard for me. ANYWAY. Spent the New Year hanging out with tricksterquinn
and drinking champagne and forcing her to watch some A:tLA and making her listen to me blather for freaking hours about a fic I'm failing to write, so that was a pretty nifty way to start off a year. :D
Less nifty was waking up today and looking at the clock and discovering that it was 12:30 -- which, for the record, is the latest possible time I'm supposed to be at the theater where I work
. This was not a good moment for me. I somehow showered, dressed, and made it to the theater in half an hour flat, which is pretty fucking impressive given that I live a 20-30 min drive away. The adrenaline is only now beginning to ebb. iPHONE USERS:
there is a fucking glitch in your phone caused by the new year somehow, in which any of your existing alarms WILL NOT WORK. You need to delete your alarms and reset them anew. Don't just change the time, delete the damn thing and start over. Or your alarm will not go off and you will be late for work tomorrow morning. AREN'T YOU GLAD I HAVE TO WORK ON SUNDAYS AND CAN DISCOVER THIS FOR YOU.
This PSA brought to you by WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK.
And in other news, YULETIDE
! I was responsible for one fic only:So We'll Go No More A-Roving
Fandom: Arcadia - Tom Stoppard (this is my favorite play in the history of everything, seriously)
Characters: Hannah, Thomasina, Gus, Valentine, Chloe, Septimus
Written for offsammichIf a line may become transmuted into a square, and then further metamorphose into a cube, surely a fourth dimension might yet be extrapolated, if one could only find the correct perspective from which to sketch it.
I know there was a lot of bitching leading up to Yuletide about how hard this fic was to write, but it all did come together awesomely at the last minute and I was lucky enough to find an incredibly amazing beta, lionpyh, who whacked it into shape. And damn, I love these characters and this play, and like Hannah, it was all just a matter of finding the right angle to make it all come together in my head. So, yay!
Also, I received two fun-tastic How I Met Your Mother Barney/Robin fics, and that was a spectacular Christmas present. :D These Things That I've Done
