I like you.
Hello old friends! This is addictedkitten, or at least it was until I picked up a rename token and switched it over to cyclogenesis about an hour ago. So, I guess, actually, it’s Sara, but that’s who it’s been all along. Did I mention hello? |
I’ve been writing fanfiction again. This is something that I haven’t done on a regular basis since 2009. I got super into BBC Sherlock, and started reading a lot and having a lot of ideas, and starting a lot of things and then quailing at the self-imposed pressure and decided to just do something real simple instead and answer a few prompts on the Porn Battle instead of trying to write a “story” with “plot” and “character arcs” or whatever. And then, of course, none of those prompts ended up being Sherlock prompts (unless RPF counts, in which case I guess my first Sherlock story is Benedict Cumberbatch/Martin Freeman? uhhhh yep).
I wrote three ficlet things, except one ended up being over 2000 words because what is brevity, and I was posting them at the DW Porn Battle post using the cyclogenesis username I parked over there. I’ve been expressing my fannish interests over at Tumblr for the last few years, where I’m also cyclogenesis. Oh man, this is getting so long-winded. The point is it felt wrong to be writing and only posting on AO3, and I want to have a public fannish journal again, and it made the most sense to switch this one over because it has like eight years worth of fanfiction on it, so here I am.
Life-wise, in the years since I last updated this journal, I have done as follows: a year and three months ago, I moved to Los Angeles. I’ve wanted to move to LA since I was seven years old and my parents moved us from California to Washington. I considered LA for college, I considered it again when I was living in Washington again after school, but decided on Las Vegas instead. It feels really nice to finally be living in the city where I’ve always meant to end up. I’ll be here for the long haul. I live in a rad little apartment across the street from a gorgeous, huge park. I can see the Hollywood sign from the top of my steps, and I can walk to Sunset Boulevard (for example, to my favorite vegan restaurant in Los Angeles, where I am currently sitting and typing this while enjoying a green juice and plate of breads and dips).
I don’t really keep up with bandom things anymore, except for the very far reaches of the tiny LA bands contingent - I go see JJAMZ when they play around here, but that’s about it. I saw The Young Veins a handful of times when they were touring, and that was really great. I miss going to see lots of shows on a tour, so hopefully Tegan & Sara will get it in gear and then ivyenglish and I can go and make a Tegan & Sara & Sara & Sara time of it, and then Tegan will marry one or both of us, and we can call it a happy, happy day. Musically right now I’m super obsessed with Reign of Terror, the new Sleigh Bells album - looking forward to seeing them at the Mayan next week. Also been listening a lot to The Naked and Famous, Company of Thieves, The National, The Donnas, PJ Harvey, and, eternally, Paramore, who seem to be the FBR band I listen to the most in my car. Haha, FBR! You guys, we used to care so much.
My days of dressing ridiculously are certainly coming to a middle: ( These last few weeks I have been obsessed with sequins.Collapse )
I’ve put up the stories I’ve written so far here on this journal and backdated them. Here are they are:
Brick - Sherlock RPF, Benedict Cumberbatch/Martin Freeman
The Biggest Scandals of Blair Waldorf’s Week - Gossip Girl, Blair Waldorf/Dan Humphrey
Endless Loop - The Runaways, Joan Jett/Cherie Currie
They are all pornographic, because you know how I do. In a little bit I’m going to post another story, in none of those fandoms. What is consistency? I don’t know.
So, anyway, I’m back! If you are still around and want to defriend, please feel free, no hard feelings. My current fandoms/things I’m likely to talk and write fanfiction about in the future are roughly as follows: Gossip Girl (Dan/Blair!), Vampire Diaries (all pairings! All of them!), Sherlock, Sherlock RPF, and whatever else might strike my fancy (I’ve been reading Captain America slash lately. Idk! Sebastian Stan!!). I will also update about my actual life on a somewhat limited basis.
I can be found elsewhere as follows:
cyclogenesis@ao3 (working on uploading everything here. it is a SLOW AND ANNOYING PROCESS)
cyclogenesis@dreamwidth (I will probably start cross-posting here?)
cyclogenesis@formspring (do people still do formspring? it was A Thing for awhile)
That's it! Hi everyone!
