In other news, this post-Reichenbach!AU I'm trying to finish up has possibly three different timelines and seems to hinge entirely around photography. I'm becoming dreadfully confused. Can't quite count the number of times I've scraped the whole lot and then picked it up again, by now. I just want to tie it all up before S2 starts — after that the AU!dimension'll become more drastic than it already is, and I want to write a John-centric roadtrip after the third episode anyway.

(It doesn't help that TSN fandom hasn't quit being wonderful and I want to write approximately six hundred post-depositions stories.)

He's also providing writing advice for NaNoWriMo, which I find infinitely lovely.

I'm glad you're enjoying uni! :D :D I'm... well. I'm enjoying it, but I'm a bit tired of it already. Like, why am I still here? Although I tend to get like that every year around the holidays, so that's probably normal.

WHEE, post-Reichenbach!AU sounds lovely! Can't wait to read it! I'm sure it'll be fabulous, as always ♥

(Yeah, I'm still in the XMFC fandom, too. I feel like I'm betraying Francis and Arthur. i still love you both, i promiiiiise)

UNI IS MAGNIFICENT. Bet you I'm not still saying this three months from now, but. Ahahahaha.

I'm still stuck on the Reichenbach!AU, tbh. I need to make myself actually write it, and it's nearly done, but — some scenes I'm unhappy with, and some scenes I'm really really happy with, and I don't think I can actually rewrite the entire thing even though it's not that long and ugh oh my god I'm stuck. It doesn't help that I'm tentatively writing TSN!fic. D: on that note: do watch the movie. do. then i can throw ideas at you and stop tearing my heart out. ♥♥♥

And oh I actually did watch part of that movie the other day! I need to actually find it and watch it from start to finish instead of shreds here and there. But. The subtext ahahahahaaaaaaa it's like every movie ever these days I mean look at Avengers and i need to shut up okay)

ENJOY IT WHILE YOU CAN, THEN :D

Aw, I hate that feeling! It pretty much happens to me all the time when writing fic, so I can fully empathize. And aaah, okay, okay, let's make a deal! I shall watch TSN and you shall watch XMFC and together we'll forget about uni and homework and immerse ourselves into fandom. (...actually, that's a pretty accurate description of our lives right now, isn't it?)

Yes yes please do because the subtext it is incredible and, actually, it's even better in real life, I think, ahahahaha, because James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender don't even try to hide it. Case in point: this, which, well, basically speaks for itself. (the entire interview is pretty fantastic, though :D)

THAT'LL BE. LIKE. TWO WEEKS. MEBBE UNTIL CHRISTMAS BREAK. o/ o/

... I can do that deal. I can absolutely go with that deal. I'm even ahead of you, since I've actually watched a little XMFC already. :D (Yeaaaaah. Yes it is. I don't regret a thing.)

What amuses me is that I'd already seen that video. I, like, I haven't even watched the entire movie yet and I've already seen the McAvoy/Fassbender interviews. I'm going to be so, so biased when I actually watch the whole thing, oman.

THANKSGIVING BREAK THIS WEEK o/ although it's not going to be much of a break, I'm afraid. I've lots of Spanish assignments, a project, and a scholarship essay in which I'm supposed to write about why I want a scholarship. I mean, what? Because I want the money, damn it, isn't that good enough of a reason?

YES, OKAY, I'm going to go find TSN and watch it over the Christmas holidays. Although, hey, I just finished watching the first season of Downton Abbey so that should totally count towards my end of the deal. On that note: Mary! Matthew! Anna! Bates! Thomas I'm so glad you're leaving and if you show up next season I'm going to punch you in the face! And ohhhhhhhh O'Brien andandand the baby and the soap in the bath and aaahhhh /flails

would you by any chance have the links to series 2? :X

Haha, oh but the McAvoy/Fassbender interviews are gold. Gold.

/late.

/um.

Still working on the beta, I'm afraid. ): I will finish it by the end of the week, though. ALSO YOU LUCKY SOD. We don't get no breaks until Christmas week here. Have yourself a merry Thanksgiving, though! eat a lot of turkey, IDK, you lot have weird turkey traditions.

o/ I can help you find it, btw, if that's what hinders you. I have connections. AND OHMAN DOWNTON ABBEY you have no idea what the second season brings. NONE. And I'm only on the third episode because I don't want to finish it yet, lolol. Also: the first four, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] kim47. :D i sort of like thomas. poor bloke is seriously cockblocked every step of the way, which sort of accounts for it? — aaaand he kind of gets more sympathetic in s2.

i am absolutely writing timetravel!TSN!fic ogod save me.

/it's okay!

/no, really

in all seriousness, don't worry about it! I probably won't get to really do any serious editing until after the semester ends, so. are you enjoying it, at least? :O I hope it's not something awful and terrible that you have to force yourself to do :P

Thanks! :D I'm... actually not a big fan of turkey, hahaha. I think mother is cooking a Cornish hen, or something. We do have weird turkey traditions. Just this morning apparently Obama pardoned two turkeys! I think it's a yearly thing. Not sure. I'm very out of the loop with these things. My British chem professor once called Thanksgiving the second stupidest American holiday - right after the Fourth of July, of course. Man, he was great.

Oooh, connections. Yes, please! If you could give me a download link, that'd be great. If not, I suppose I could probably find the DVD in the library. AHH DOWNTON ABBEY I STARTED S2 TODAY AND JUST THE FIRST EPISODE WAS LIKE ;AKDJFADJF;A;KJF;JASKF;A. ah, is that so? i wondered if he'd be the sort of character that's initially portrayed as someone completely awful but then gets redeemed-ish in the end. kind of like snape? or draco? well, i'm looking forward to watching it all at any rate.

also, if you're looking for someone to stop you from writing, i'm afraid you're barking up the wrong tree

Work. It doesn't like me. I do love your fic, though — man, you know how I am with roommates and food, I devour that kind of story like Cheerios — so. No, it's no awful or terrible stop this right now. I'm just really fucking busy. :/

Well I think it's... today? so have a good time, I guess. :D any holiday that affords good food is a good holiday in my book. (He pardoned the turkeys? you have the best president, I swear. He actually has a sense of humour, something which no French president has had in known memory.)

OKAYOKAY HOLD ON. Here's a Jesse Eisenberg masterpost, a TSN masterpost, aaaaaand just another copy if for some reason the above two have gone extinct. LET ME REC YOU ALL THE BEST EVERYTHING, OKAY. :D :D also: yes! you sort of. become really sorry for him. honestly i just think that if he found himself some nice boy he'd quiet the fuck down

): buttttt. ahahahah ilu ♥

Work doesn't like me, either :\ I've procrastinated a lot, which is why my Thanksgiving break hasn't been much of a break. haha who am i kidding you know i'm online reading fic anyway And, aww, bb ♥♥

Yeees, I sat around eating and eating and eating. Baked mint chocolate chip cookies, so that's pretty much all I'm running on right now, ahaha. Unhealthy eating habits ftw. (and yes, yes, he did! apparently it's something of an American tradition and quite a few presidents have done it, but this was the first time I caught it on TV.)

YAY, OKAY, I'm downloading it right now. Expect flailing and requests for fic recs sometime in the middle of December :D
