My life, let me show you

cordelianne: (Star Trek The power of the eyebrows...)
My life has been seeming random and weird lately!

* I took my dad to see Star Trek (his first viewing, my third) and he loved it. Afterward, we were enjoying some tea when a guy came up and asked us for crack and told us he really needed some. I'm like "Really? You're asking us?" (well, I thought that in my head!). The fact that he asked us suggested how desperate he was!

* I'm getting tired of people saying that they're okay with other people being gay as long as it's not so "in your face" (*cough*Nigel on SYTYCD*cough*). So, for my work's Pride parade costumes, I suggested we have things written on t-shirts like "cocksucker" and "bull dyke", just to be really in your face. Everyone loves the idea so I'm pleased and now have to figure out what I want on my shirt.

* I'm also getting tired of people claiming that you can only be a nice person if you're from a small town. A friend and I helped a woman who'd fallen and hit her head (she fortunately seemed very okay so we just waited with her till her husband came, got her water and offered to help clean her scrapes), and it came up that from friend and I aren't originally from Toronto and the woman and her husband were all "Oh, so that's why you helped, because you're from a small place." Which was baffling to me because we've both lived in Toronto for 10+ years and helped her because we saw her fall/trip. I feel confident that if we weren't around other people would have helped.

* I've been bummed by the number of people who've totally flaked on [ profile] spring_with_xan. Some people have let us know which is great and we understand that things happen, but it's disheartening to have so many people who aren't getting in contact with us. *sigh*

* My cousin and I have realized that we went to summer camp with the guy charged in the creepy creepy kidnapping and murdering of a young girl (Tori Stafford), which has been big news up here in Canada. [Link to story.] It's all very creepy to think about. Randomly, this was the Christian camp that inspired my Spike/Xander AU Outside Pride.

In happier news.... )

Also, I thought it would be fun to do that meme that's going around: Name your 10 absolutely favorite couples (het/slash/canon/fanon) and ask people to see what trends they notice about your couples. Try to pick different fandoms. My answers behind the cut )
cordelianne: (Star Trek Kirk/McCoy Eyeroll)
School has been stressing me out. I'm not sure I like my prof and the essay I just wrote was a painful, painful, all-night struggle and not half as good as I wanted it to be. I'm now very sleep-deprived. But! Instead of focusing on why I could be grumpy, I must share my love for the shiny new Star Trek!

I went into the movie expecting to enjoy it (the trailers looked so good that even though I've never been a big Trek fan - I've always been been someone who enjoys it but not loved it - I went in excited) and I left LOVING it!! I've now seen it twice and am conspiring to see it again. I also came out of the theatre declaring to my girlfriend, "I now understand why Trek basically started fanfic". And since then it's been a downward (upward?) spiral into reading fic and even writing it! (My first ST fic, Kirk/McCoy, is here.) Oh! Plus, the girlfriend and I are planning to watch the other Trek movies when she's back up here in June (I've seen them but she hasn't). I've also been DVRing original Trek episodes.

So yes, I'm already percolating on some more ST slash BUT I do not plan to leave the BtVS fandom. I continue to write (and am currently posting Xander Harris Versus Destiny with [personal profile] reremouse and [ profile] savoytruffle - the next chapter is now up!) and read in the Buffyverse. I do wish that there were more Spike/Xander fics that I want to read. Reading all the Trek fic has made it especially apparent to me how much I've been missing having lots of fic I want to read. I hope that doesn't sound too whiny, I know there's still S/X fic being produced but a lot of it sadly isn't to my taste. But yes, I am not leaving you, Buffyverse! Oooh, and I'm excited for [ profile] summer_of_giles - it always inspires me to write Giles and reminds me how much I love him (and Giles/Xander!). :D

So changing topics entirely... I'm like two pages away from finishing Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and am a bit conflicted about how I feel about it. Cut in case of spoilers )
