I love this person

All I want for Christmas is a set of random postcards.


Early New Year's Resolution

I was walking through the mall, of all places, two nights ago, and I walked past a store that sells all sorts of fan stuff. Memorabilia. All the things I would have either wanted or just simply bought before I started to realize that surrounding myself with things, while nice, is just a complication that I no longer want or need.

I am, by my very nature, a fan of things. I get involved in the angst or the drama. I wonder how things will turn out. Many of us do this, I know, and it's nothing all that revolutionary. I've met most of my friends, people I love, because I was a fan of one thing or another. I don't regret it and I have no plans to suddenly sell my television or stop reading books, or even to stop caring about those things.

I am, however, planning to make a change in the new year. Rather, a change in priorities. I've lost myself in other things. I've lost myself in raising my daughter, in some ways, something I think a lot of mothers do. The B is obviously still my first priority, but I think that now that she's two, I'm much more comfortable with her integrated (deeply) into my life, rather than the way I looked at it before, in which she largely WAS my life.

So, this is going to sound egotistical. Maybe it is. I don't know. I've spent so long being an active fan of the projects of other people that this whole idea seems quite foreign to me. Boy, is this going to sound self-absorbed, but I really don't mean it that way. However.

Next year, I'm going to be a fan of me. I'm going to work on my own projects. I don't even know what they're going to be or if I'll even finish any of them. I do know that I'm going to try.


Well, I Suppose I'm Back To Posting

It's been awhile, I know. Things are starting to seem normal again, and I've been looking for an excuse to start posting again. I suppose having The Quidditch Pitch flatter me with a featured story award for December is as good a reason as any. I love TQP. :)

Thanks, TQP!


My Controversial Idea

I am so, so tempted to set up a sock puppet LJ and just scamper around leaving comments that correct spelling and grammar. That's all. No other comments. No walking on eggshells, no stroking of egos. Just the cold, hard facts.

I know I'd miss some. I'm human, after all, and no one is perfect. Maybe we should ALL start sock puppet LJs and do it. Sock puppet collects the spluttering, "how dare you insult me with the facts" rants and flames, and our main LJ identities remain pristine.

(And grammar and spelling might improve.)

I know this sounds terribly elitist, and it probably is, but I can't take the degradation of the language for much longer without putting my eyes out with toothpicks.


My Fondest Grammar Wish

I think I could live a happy life if from this moment and forever afterward, no one would ever screw up there/their/they're/theirs/there's EVER. AGAIN.

There's really no other writing mistake that makes me want to claw the eyeballs from their (not there, not they're) sockets more than that.

DW Fic: Happy Ending, Nine/Rose, 1/1, PG

Title: Happy Ending
Author: amandarex
Character/Pairing: Nine/Rose
Rating: PG
Summary: Set just after "Father's Day", the Doctor takes Rose on a trip to help her see that there are some stories that have a happy ending.
Disclaimer: I don't own Doctor Who, the Doctor, Rose, or American history.
Author's Notes: Betaed by the wonderful dynapink. Written for the Anywhere But Cardiff ficathon on time_and_chips. My time/place: American Civil War - anywhere in the then established states, 1861-1865. This fic is also doing double duty, fulfilling my "hide" prompt for my Nine/Rose claim at doctorwho_100. My prompt table.

Imagine the TARDIS is spinning and Billie Piper and Christopher Eccleston's names are flying up to the screen. Music optional.Collapse )
