tir-synni's random babblings

The best hero is a broken hero.

Currently posting more fics to AO3. I...didn't realize I had so many sitting on my laptop. But anyway. Unexpected Side Effects is being reposted here. Some old Hobbit fics were posted, as well as a rebooted Star Trek fic. Seriously. How many old fics do I have?

...I want to see the Hobbit again...

After reviewing tent!fic...

I realized that I fail at limiting my use of adverbs and at show-don't-tell.

So work, family, and other responsibilities have been epically kicking my ass for the last several months. I have barely been writing ficcage in my notebooks, and that is strange and horrifying. In 2014, I'm definitely going to need to look for a less stressful job. Of course, based on certain circumstances, I'm hoping 2014 will be much calmer than 2013. 2013 epically won. I think it deserves a medal.

Reviewing old fics and notebooks since I do have some time off for the holidays. Top on this list is tent!fic. A lot of the last chapter has been written (for a period of time, rewritten multiple times, and enduring of many glares) and I wanted to reread the fic to make sure that I didn't mess up the last chapter since there had been so much time. It would also help sketch out the plot for the next part of the fic...because I'm a masochist. To help with this, I'm reviewing and posting the chapters on AO3.

Here's to the hope that 2014 will be more successful than 2013...and dear gods, I am ready to start sacrificing to various deities (and major priests) to get some damned chips and dip.

the cold night freezing up my sins

So the last month has been a tad busy. My sister moved up here in July and spent the first part of August adjusting, and then my brother visited, and then catching up with work due to taking a week off, there was a slight incident with my car in which my entire front left wheel tried to make a break for it, and I'm leaving for London on Thursday and meeting an awesome friend. So...a tad busy. A tad.

So my hope is upon my return everything will actually calm down. Nothing is planned for a while after that. I have a feeling that, by then, I will be very grateful for a break.

For all those not yet into Welcome to Night Vale, please start. It's awesome.

Wonder Woman or Sex Interest, anyone?
notshakespeare

I sometimes fear that in everyone’s urgency to promote feminism, they’re instead doing the opposite. Mako Mori from Pacific Rim helps make my case. How many people’s immediate reaction was to say she was there for eye candy or be a romantic interest rather than stand alone as a strong, independent character? How many people, even after seeing the movie, were quick to either sexualize her or point out every instance where she failed to act how they thought a “strong female" should? How are we, in our attempts to promote strong female characters, instead holding women to the same type of inhuman standard that we bitch at other people for doing (i.e., Virgin or Whore)?

There are far worse things awaiting man than death...

So my workplace provides tuition reimbursement providing you work there for two years and are willing to continue working for them two years after you finish. It's in my plans, so it works. A co-worker of mine was already attending a school, so since it was already a school I knew would be approved by the county, I enrolled in that.

So my life as a student in a Christian school...Collapse )

So today I accidentally marched in the Gay Pride Parade. It was pretty fun, if you ignored the rain. I got to blow kisses at the protesters.
Into Darkness spoilers for those who haven't seen it...Collapse )

Will I return like my self or parted atoms...

So current goal is to be somewhat active online, including blogs and linkedin. Let's see how this goes.

Fic writing is going, even if a good chunk of it is glaring, editing, and reviewing to see if I screwed up my own universe/timeline...again. *coughs* In the meantime, scribbling out Star Trek fanfiction because apparently I adore Chris Pine as a young James T. Kirk. I keep looking at him and thinking "Baby Kirk!" ...I think McCoy thinks the same thing.

I actually bought a Men's Health magazine with Chris Pine on the front. True, actually bought it because it had cool articles versus what you find in women's magazines, but Chris Pine's interview is a nice bonus. :)
