Well, since I've got a music theme going...

I don't know if I've ever actually watched the Grammys the whole way through.  I usually don't like the majority of the music being awarded.  But I had nothing better to watch, since they were hosted on CBS, and some of the promised appearances sounded good.  I ended up wandering downstairs to watch it with my parents, the dog curled up next to me on the sofa, and it was really rather entertaining.  I also like how it's not really so much about the awards (they give out, what, maybe 10?  Plus a bunch of lifetime achievement recognitions) as about how many performances they can show.  Really, those are much more fun.

New Fic

As if I didn't already have enough things to talk about today, I finished another story.   This particular one was inspired back in...I think November, playing with the Almost Totally Random Pairing Generator.  I play with it a lot, but only about 1 in 200 rolls will inspire something.  When it does, it hits instantly.  However, then it often takes me weeks of sporadically working on it before I actually finish.

I swore I wasn’t going to actually post fic here, and I meant it.  The thing about fanfiction.net is that it has an extensive statistics page that keeps track of the number of hits, reviews, etc.  I like having them all lined up like that, and having all my reviews e-mailed to me for safekeeping.  If you would like to tell me what you thought of this story, and do not have an FFN account of your own, feel free to leave an anonymous review.  I will, however, give you all the pertinent details before you click the link.

Onward!  (with the link fixed this time)


First impressions of Man Down

(that's me, RS - bringing you the fastest post-episode updates in LJ land)

Dude, I don't even know what to say.  Not sure that as a whole it was as good as part 1, but parts of it were but DAMN AWESOME, and caused me to shriek and squee in delight, and while most of the Eric section of my painstakingly crafted fic-in-progress is now in ribbons, I am fairly confident I can fix that.

These thoughts will be at least partially replaced, expanded upon and/or written more coherently later on, so keep checking back.  I have a feeling it's going to be another wicked all-nighter.  Though I woke up at 5:30 this morning, so...we'll see.
