Help me Obi-Wan!  
I have these two BSG stories. I've been working on both fairly well, but now they're both kinda lagging. So help me, flist, what should I work on.

ETA: and my strike-through didn't take in the poll for some reason. And we can't edit polls. anyway.

Poll #1147454 Finishing

Which fic should I work on?

"A shift in the wind changes the target", Farm AU, 3500 of 5000 words
"The risk that breaks you", Fall of Caprica/Slashathon fic, 5000 of, um, 10,000 words, possibly more
Something else I will bitch tell you about in comments
TICKY FIC! Finish that first!

Titles subject to change,as always.

Logically I should finish the AU because it's nearer the end. And yet Slashathon has a deadline of sorts, and I'm farther away on that one. But it requires some rewatching.

So now I have author-paralysis and I don't know what to write! Maybe I should just go to bed and figure it out tomorrow!


But no, Matrix is on. I don't care how many times I've seen it, I can't go to bed when I catch it on t.v.

Farm AU? Eee? Wha?

I think it was your PoD prompt.... *sly grin*

Obviously, I should vote for that.

Or maybe do some whining about Shadow in the Pattern.
lizardbeth: Sinclairlizardbeth_j on March 2nd, 2008 07:53 am (UTC)
Now if only Shadow would rise above no.5 in my fannish 'priority' list.

Instead, I'm all: "ooo, look! SHINY!"

This is a sad sad state of affairs.

You know what I voted for.

It if makes you feel any better, I haven't written either of my stories yet. I know the general idea for both, but still. One will be fairly easy--straight up dirty Lee/Sam porn--not that I've written a word on that yet.

The other I have a rough idea for, but I'm going to try writing it in a different style than normal, not to mention it's just... *sigh* Helo and Sam on Caprica are too emo for words. That's the problem. That and Helo's stubborn heterosexuality. And, yeah, Kara keeps cropping up, for Helo as much as for Sam. *sigh* Tis hard, but I have written a bit. For a story hopefully in seven or eight bits, I guess I should be glad I've finished one of them.

Anyway, you've got like three weeks. (Or is it four? I must check on that...) That's what I keep telling myself, anyway. :)

I know exactly what I want to do on the Slashathon fic, unfortunately that idea collided and combined with my desire to do the Bucs/Resistance on Caprica. So it's threatening ... small epic. And I remember very clearly, stating that this year there would be NO MORE EPICS for ficathons. *pout*

oh, that Helo - he just refuses to get laid, doesn't he? *smacks him around*

Drunk and depressed, man. That's the only way to get Helo to frak someone who isn't Sharon. Drunk and depressed. The little bastard. :P
captain capricious: bsg:helocynthia_arrow on March 2nd, 2008 06:07 pm (UTC)
Oh, I expected to need him to be depressed and probably drunk, too (hence the Cylon-Occupied Caprica), but I didn't expect some weird-ass Kara/Helo thing to spring up. (I love them as friends, and I even believe some sexual tension there, but beyond that, it seems strange to me.)

I'm starting to really, really understand just how much kick-ass female characters can be an impediment to the slash. Coming as I do from years in the 'Lost' fandom, with its boring and poorly-written women, like the writers are begging people to turn to the slash. :)

But yeah, bastard indeed. Maybe I should just write some Helo/Sharon. :)

I'm with Lyssie, the farm AU sounds v. v. promising! Though, when I read your Babylon 5/ BSG Crossover you may be in for some whining on that, too. ;)

Amusingly, I hadn't voted yet. I HAVE NOW.
Allisonfrolicndetour on March 2nd, 2008 07:41 am (UTC)
If it's for the PoD ficathon then yes, I'm gonna go create a few sockpuppet journals so I can vote again! B.B.S.
lizardbeth: Many copieslizardbeth_j on March 2nd, 2008 07:45 am (UTC)
The Admiral frowns on ballot-stuffing.

(President Roslin however thinks it's a fine idea, but she doesn't like the idea of copies running around loose...)

ticky fic got my vote lol
finish the top one. That is closer to being done.

Hee. As I'm pushing the vote button to seal the deal on my vote for the Farm AU ('cause I want to read that!), I'm reading that you feel you should finish that one first. :P

lizardbeth: Anders - shirtlizardbeth_j on March 2nd, 2008 08:58 pm (UTC)
You voted with the clear majority, yes. *g*
(though I get the uneasy feeling people may be expecting more out of the fic than is actually there... It's not a huge complicated epic-y thing.)
The Proverbial Bull in a China Shop...: don't evensabaceanbabe on March 2nd, 2008 09:07 pm (UTC)
You don't need to worry about me expecting too much. I have no expectations save that it's set during the Helo and Kara Caprica Roadshow timeframe. :D
Rosie: MalekTwoMindsrosiethehobbit on March 2nd, 2008 01:05 pm (UTC)
-sigh- Why do you sign up for so many ficathons when you already have wonderful WIP's waiting to be finished? I think you like stringing me along. ;)
lizardbeth: Maleklizardbeth_j on March 2nd, 2008 08:56 pm (UTC)
I know, I know, it's an addiction. I decided that I'm not changing my header until I finish, so that's always going to stay hanging over my head until I'm done. Because I WILL finish, damn it.

But I do love stringing you along, yes. :D
cujoy on March 2nd, 2008 03:52 pm (UTC)
I added my vote for The Farm AU. Because there can never be too much Farm AU. :D

(But my second place vote is for the Sam/Lee porn. Because there can never be too much of that.)

lizardbeth: Anders - cross outlizardbeth_j on March 2nd, 2008 08:53 pm (UTC)
Apparently Farm AU is the Winnah!!!!

But there is no Sam/Lee porn (at least not from me), so your vote for that is somewhat wasted, sorry! *g*
mrsdrjackson: tee hee heemrsdrjackson on March 3rd, 2008 02:24 am (UTC)
Two Tall Trees, which you were going to write another chapter of for my birthday...which was in January. :P *g*

Or another chapter of the B5/BSG crossover!
lizardbeth: Agathonslizardbeth_j on March 3rd, 2008 08:20 pm (UTC)
ha! And THIS would be why you should never believe me when I say I'm going to write something! *g* Remember, I am the world's slowest writer and I'm easily distracted, which is an ... unfortunate combination.

I have a bit more on the SGA one, but not enough. I gotta figure out where it's going after that. Which, come to think about it, is the reason Shadow stalled as well. I get all caught up in trying to figure out plot for everybody. hmpf.
