What am I gonna do?  
So, that twelvecolonies challenge of 25,000 words by Dec. 1? I don't know. I'd like to help out the team. The word count doesn't particularly scare me, since I've done 20K in two weeks before, for my yuletide assignment in 07.

But. I have a sg_rarepairings fic to write by beginning Dec, too. I have Ariadne to finish editing and put up next week. (OMG! NEXT WEEK! *flail*) And several of my possible longfic ideas tend to tread all over Ariadne and its sequel, since they're all S.4 AUs.

But on the other, other hand (yes, I'm an octopus, shut up): I have two ideas that might work.

1. Do a fic compliant with The Plan, in my Before it's too late-'verse, where Sam and Leoben get to know each other on Caprica, really really well.

2. Something completely different in an Earth AU (not Nellis-verse). A few of you may remember I did a comment-fic sometime ago in which Kara is a concert pianist, and Sam's a physicist. I did a vague outline for how they meet and run into bad guys and stuff, awhile back, and that could go 20K easily.

So, since I have to decide NOW, A POLL! :)

Poll #1482291 Choose a Project!

What should I write for the challenge?

Sam and Leoben on Caprica
Kara and Sam - Earth AU
Don't write for the challenge!
Write something else.
Ticky has no opinion!

Like there was any doubt about my choice. *g* But do what's best for you. She did clarify that the 25K can be in more than one fic, if that helps you at all.

hm, yeah, I saw that. But I don't know if it helps or actually is worse. Two 12,000-word-fics actually sounds harder, I think, and ten 2500-word fics sounds kinda helllish. ;)

Look at it from my perspective: There's more fic that I haven't written to read if you write more. =D

Sam and Kara! You are the queen of AUs, so of course I think you should do that.

Plus, Sam and Kara!

Not that I wouldn't love Sam (SAM!) and Leoben, you understand. ;)
lizardbeth: Leoben - Demetriuslizardbeth_j on November 8th, 2009 04:46 am (UTC)
I understand there are priorities, yes. :) Luckily pornbattle IV is slated for January, and I'm likely to write Sam/Leo for that, if I don't do it now. But it's kinda appealing with the Plan still all shiny in my head, too.

Gah, you made me choose! I'm afraid Kara/Sam won, because I am a sucker for physicist!Sam (which is totally canon as well as awesome AU, in my mind).

If I have to choose, I figure I might as well make everyone else choose too.

Heh, yeah, it turned out to be a lot less AU than I had originally planned, that's for sure!
