update time!

In the list of things that amuse me, Hiddleston fandom has lifted even my Virgilia fic (w/o Martius) into more kudos than the 60K+ words of Black Sails... (I laugh so I don't cry, but it's kinda funny that a Coriolanus fic, esp one that has no slash, has any readers at all, outside of, say, yuletide)

Finished [profile] f_march_madness with a decent bracket, with my complex algorithm of fandom size, shininess of fandom, and points of attack, was fairly successful, but even so, I underestimated Brooklyn-9-9. Apparently the Golden Globes were just ahead of their time, lol. I'm sure my success rate there will still be higher than NCAA's though, where I've been known to pick winners based on which would win if the school mascot animals/whatever got in a cage fight (this doesn't work too well - I know you're shocked by this news).

Writing is kind of... messed up, at the moment. I'm at that stage where I have too many bits in my head and I can't settle on just one. It would help if I stop compulsively editing Snow Queen and Ice Demon, granted, but yeah, I have projects yo.

[profile] wipbigbang rough draft is due in two weeks, more or less. I have... nothing? Because I can't decide and I'm working on three things all at once, badly. Theoretically the primary should really be Hurricane, because I need to finish it, and this is kind of what the big bang is for. Art would be nice, but otoh, I also don't want to launch it all at once. Fic dies on the vine and the only way to keep them alive is installments. (sorry, I know it's inconvenient to wait for the rest of it, especially when it's done(ish), but it's a cold hard fact that I like readers, and if I'm going to be writing more than 20K, I'm maximising that readership as much as I can.)

So if not Comes the Hurricane, then what? It's not like I have a lack to choose from -- the choices are either my sequel to "A Seed in Barren Lands" (which needs a title - tentatively I have it as "Crocus in the Snow" but crocus is a weird word if you look at it too long, so I don't know....) or the sequel to "Snow Queen/Ice Demon" which is basically an AU of Captain America in which Loki goes to kick some Nazi ass in Arendelle. The sad thing about the later stories in that sequence is that the Frozen connection with Elsa and Anna gets more tenuous, but then I get to do stuff like have Loki meet Steve early because of this connection to Arendelle. But I need to watch Cap again, for one thing, and get more of a plot.

I kind of figure whichever one I don't pick will be my entry to [profile] norsebigbang so it almost doesn't matter, but at the same time, I feel like I need to just work on something rather than everything all at once. half-assedly.

It'll probably help now that all this stuff with my dad's been sorted. As soon they find a blood pressure med that'll stop his feet from swelling up horribly, he'll be okay. Cardiologist told him today though that with the size of the blockage they dug out of him, another two months later he'd probably have died of a heart attack, so... you know, that was actually really good timing. Makes a week in the hospital a lot less awful that's for sure.

So now I can hpefully be less stressed about it all and write a stupid limerick for twelvecolonies. FYI NOTHING RHYMES WITH ORANGE.
