HELLO PEOPLE! YES, TIS I, THE DISAPPEARED ONE! LONG TIME NO SEE, EH?

Ahem. Wow, how long has it been? Like 2 months? I don't know how I survived - this time of year is absolutely horrible for me, plus my internet connection was weirding out on me, but I'm alive! I survived my stargate deprivation! Woot! Seriously, I thought I would drop dead after the first week of solid work and no play, but surprisingly, I didn't... very strange. I like to think that it was his smiling face that gave me courage in my time of need. ;D

Anyway... so what's new?? Not much from my end... haven't had time to write ANYTHING (literally - NOTHING. Except for Big Bang fic) so I think my muse might have packed up and left after being ignored for so long... muse, wherever you are, please come back! I neeeed yooouu! XD

I haven't had time to keep up with what's new in the fandom either, but I heard from meridith_smith that Ronon actually isn't going to loose his dreads? Or something like that, because the Sci-fi channel said no? WTF is up with that? I was looking forward to seeing his new look! I also heard something about a sheyla scene in season 5... WHAT? Please tell me it isn't so!! *sweatdrop*

So that's all I have to say. Hopefully I'll be able to post again this week... no more long absences, dammit! :D And now I think I'll go spam all your journals to see what's been going on...

Okay. So. I've had this idea for a while - an AU where SGA are biblical figures. I call it the Jack_Is_God!Verse, because let's face it, Jack would make an awesome god. And, you know, if you think I'm crazy, just blame it on meridith_smith, because it was all her idea to begin with.

So, anyway, I wrote this - it was supposed to be a take on the "Daniel and the Lion's Den" story, with Rodney as Daniel. (Again, meridith_smith's fault! IT WAS ALL HER, THAT HEATHEN.) Of course, then I researched the actual story, and realized my Bible knowledge is pretty dismal, considering that the only real resemblance the fic bears to the original is that it has a lion's den. Well, WHATEVER. Trust me when I say I'm not devastated over my lack of religious learning. XD

Title: Don't Call Me Daniel
Summary: I think you all have a pretty good idea....
Word Count: 1180
Disclaimer: I SWEAR TO GOD I am not mocking the Bible OR religion. Honest. This was only written for fun. And trust me, there is a difference between "for fun" and "making fun". Yes, I do the latter often. No, this is not one of those times. If you find it offensive, well, I just don't know what to say to you.

*twitch* Would you like to know who wins the biggest screw-up of the week award? No, not lj. It goes to - drumroll, please - fanfiction.net!

Why, you ask? Because they did something stupid, and as a result, the formatting of thousands of fics has been completely screwed up. I heard of one person who has no paragraphs, and everything is all one big block of text. Fortunately, my case isn't that bad. I just have *no* scene breaks to speak of.

Which doesn't sound too bad, right? Until you realize that I have CRS - cronic revising syndrome - as in, if I'm re-reading one of my fics, I just *have* to tweak it a bit. And then agonize and be insecure over whether it's really any good or not.

But I thought, hey, well, it could be worse, I'll just go back and put in scene breaks. Which means I have to re-upload all of my fics. And then, you know, resist my CRS urges. I did it for Movies and Sparkiness - it took me just thirty minutes! But then I finish, look at my other fics, and go - "OMFG, I have to do cat!fic, which has seven chapters."

*looses will to live*

WHY, FF.NET? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY???

Whew, okay, it's been a while. Don't kill me. Turns out life is determined to drag me away from my happy place - but I survived anyway, cuz I'm just amazingly resilient like that, yo.

Soooo - have you heard the news yet? The Walmart smiley has been LIBERATED! It is now FREE from the chains of having to serve a low-down, no good corporation! It has escaped their clutches! Ahahaha! (No I am not high. Well, okay, I've had too much sugar. \o/ Shut up.)

Read the article HERE

Also, a Stargate Meme, stolen from... well, basically everyone on my friends list, seeing as they all did it before me. *sulks*




.... looking back on this, I've realize that those cookies must have had a hell of a lot more sugar that I originally thought. (I'm vibrating. Why am I vibrating?)

Strike on Friday, peoples! Since LJ is getting annoying. C'mon, you know you want to....

Here for details. Repost this to your journal if you want to spread the word.

(I'm not even that pissed at lj anymore - I suck at holding grudges - but it sounds fun, so I'm in. ;D )

Title: Not Yet Lost

Recipient: ubiquitous_girl

Pairing: Ronon/Melina, slight-but-ignorable hints of Ronon/Teyla

Genre: AU

Prompt: lost at sea

Rating: PG

Warnings: Minor character death

Word Count: ~ 5400 words

Summary: Well, look at the prompt. I mean, “lost at sea”? You've got to realize that's a pirate AU begging to be written, and who was I to refuse? XD

A/N: Set during the War of Spanish Succession (1701-1714). I did research a little, but don't count on historical accuracy. Also, I've no idea if you can really survive for three days at sea on a piece of driftwood – but hey, it's Ronon. ;D

ETA:  Yes, I know that technically, "Melina" is the incorrect spelling for Melena. But TPTB are idiots and didn't even bother to look up what melena is. Seriously - go look it up in a medical dictionary or something. I changed the spelling because I just couldn't stand it. XP

You know, I'm relatively new to lj, so I haven't had that much to complain about - besides not being able to upload as many icons as I want, anyway.

But now I do - because lj is censoring interests. The interests that have been victimized? Yaoi, smut, porn, girls, boys, and oh yeah, fanfiction.

WTF, LJ? I can see porn being censored, but fanfiction? FANFICTION? WHY THE HELL DOES THAT NEED TO BE CENSORED?!?!

Also gone: depression and bisexuality. Because LJ wants to keep up the image of being filled with happy, happy straight people. God.

Just for this? I'm adding "freedom of speech" and "stop fucking censoring my interests, dammit" to my interests page.

OMG OMG OMG!!! The Last Man, coming right up! Season finale, here! And - I would be excited, except.... PEOPLE ARE CRYING. OMG. I'M SO NERVOUS.

I don't want to cry! I hate crying!!! SGA supposed to provoke squeeing happiness - NOT tears!

Ahhhh. I'm seriously nervous. I haven't read any spoilers (a HUGE exersize in self-control, let me tell you) so I don't know what's going to happen... eep, just 45 minutes left until it finally airs where I live...

AUGH. This is agony. Somebody end the torture, quick.

Or just change the subject... sgabigbang! Right, perfect. Is anyone considering signing up? It sounds fun, and they're allowing Shep/Weir pairing this year... I even have the perfect plot bunny idea. *cackles* But I'm not signing up unless someone I know does - that way I'll have someone to commiserate with when if I get stuck. (If, dammit. No point in getting pessimistic already...)

Right. Back to being nervous. *chews on nails*  O_O


ETA: Never mind! THE LAST MAN WAS AWESOME. IT WAS THE AWESOMEST AWESOME THAT EVER AWESOMED. THAT IS ALL. \o/ \o/ \o/

'lo, all! Ah, what's it be, five days since I've been here last? Time to catch up...

Meme first:

Chinese Zodiac Meme (snagged from lilyoftheval5)
1. Copy-paste the traits for all the twelve zodiac.
2. Pick your zodiac, based on year of birth.
3. Bold the traits that apply to you.
4. Strike-out those that don't apply to you at all.
5. Leave the ones that partially apply to you.




So. I've been having these darn plot bunnies attack me... and had a conversation with meridith_smith about it...



And that's... pretty much it. Oh, wait!
