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 )
