The weekend was not long enough. I'm not feeling all this "work"… - Nightwalker

The weekend was not long enough. I'm not feeling all this "work" nonsense. Tomorrow is coming way too fast.

I did get my assignment for the Cap_Ironman fanfic exchange and I'm super excited. One of the prompts was perfect. The story basically wrote itself in my mind as soon as I read it. This is a good thing as last year's fic (which I still like a lot) was rewritten four or five times until I literally ended up writing 9000+ words in one sitting the night AFTER it was due and then frantically editing once it was posted. I still like the dialogue from that fic, I think I did a good job with Tony's voice. One day I will finish the sequel, as the part I finally ended up posting as a completed fic was only meant to be the first chapter.

And speaking of writing, I got another three or four pages done on the next chapter of Newsprint. Technically I could post it now, but I want to let it sit for a day or two, then reread it to make sure anything I typed actually makes sense.

The one thing I did accomplish this weekend was that I took the rest of those silver coins to the dealer and have a big fat check to deposit tomorrow morning. I have no idea what I'm going to do with myself when I pay this debt off, but I suspect it will involve me feeling vaguely giddy and dancing quietly in my seat. Alcohol may be involved.

Also, I have a heavy urge to watch Due South. I don't know where that's coming from, it's been years.

omg the prompts I got were PERFECT. I have a feeling that I'm going to be writing more than one fill for my partner.

All of mine were good, but this one was just perfect for me. If I manage to get it done in time, I'm definitely going to try and write at least a second fill.

My partner asked for MA:A and ZOMG I THINK I LOVE HER/HIM FOR IT. I don't have anything against MCU but it's not a canon I'm very good at writing and I was afraid all of my prompts would be movieverse related.

My partner gave me the option of MA, which was more than enough encouragement for me. lol

ALL THE MA.

Everything is MA and nothing hurts.

Wooo, fic!

You should always give in to the urge to watch Due South. Always.

It's been years and I don't know where my DVDs are. And I can't really afford to get distracted by another fandom when I'm supposed to finish three or four fics by the end of the month. Ack.

...

But Raaaaaaay.

Due South is perfect celebratory material.

One day I will rewatch it! That day is not today!

Newsprint, yessss.

I have been writing this chapter for two months now. While trying to make it not suck I wrote three more chapters, none of which I can post till this one is done because it's supposed to be a calendar year and we're entering the holidays and ugh. I want it to be done.

Speaking of which, Christmas is coming up, and I've got to get you something. Got a hankering for some fic?
nightwalker From: nightwalker Date: November 30th, 2012 05:57 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh my God I love your fic. Yes please!
lady_flamewing From: lady_flamewing Date: November 30th, 2012 06:02 am (UTC) (Link)
Anything in particular you'd like to read?
nightwalker From: nightwalker Date: November 30th, 2012 06:11 am (UTC) (Link)
I think I'd like to be surprised!

Would you like one? I work a 19-hour shift tomorrow and I'd love to have something to think about besides the new check verification procedures.
lady_flamewing From: lady_flamewing Date: November 30th, 2012 06:11 am (UTC) (Link)
Can do!

And, yes, please! I freaking love your stuff.

Any particular character/prompts you'd like to see?
