Day Two: If you were able to insert yourself into one fandom as your reality, what would it be? Bonus: How different would you be in that reality?
I'm going to go with Schitt's Creek. A place where homophobia doesn't exit, and it lacks the mortal danger of most of my other fandoms. Plus, it's a small town. You don't really need specialized training to be there, unlike Atlantis. I'm not one of those people who have big dreams for their life, who wants to do important stuff. I just want to be happy.

Day Three: What character do you think you would end up being best friends with? Bonus: What other character would you and your new bestie give a hard time to?
Chuck. Chucknician. AR-1 (and the rest of the senior staff) are a close-knit bunch and I don't think I could really form a deep relationship with any of them. But Chuck exists in the background, the periphery, and that's where I like to be. I don't like attention lol. Plus he seems to have a good sense of humor, and I would love to be "in the know" of all the betting pools he fanonly runs. It'd be fun to know the rumors without being subject to them.

I'm much to empathetic to give anyone a hard time, but I like to playfully tease friends.


I was going to do the next two, but they require some thinking before I post.

Starged by the incomparable [personal profile] squidgiepdx, explained in full here. There are only 15 questions, so I'm going to try and answer every other day to spread it out. Though maybe I'll get super excited and post every day, I don't know lol.

Day One: We all have that ONE fandom, or OTP. But what would you consider your backup fandom? Bonus: Who is your backup OTP? Same fandom or different?

Nobody will be surprised to read my one fandom is Stargate Atlantis, and that my one pairing is John Sheppard/Rodney McKay.

But backup fandoms/OTPs is a much more difficult question. I tend to cycle through secondary fandoms as the mood strikes. 90% of the time I'm reading McShep, it's only a very small portion of time I read other things. So. Backup fandom. I went to my pinboard and I opened my various fandom tags, then picked the two with the highest number. I have 470 fics bookmarked for H50 and 282 fics for Star Trek. I haven't actually read new H50 fic in ages - the majority are old bookmarks.

So: my backup fandom is Star Trek, Spirk specifically. I love TOS Kirk and Spock's friendship and support. But I also love nu!Kirk and Spock's more adversarial relationship, and how things might grow from there.  And now I want to read some of that fic LOL.

I have fallen down the rabbit hole of Game of Thrones fic. I fully expect to climb back out of said hole - sometimes I take brief detours into other fandoms, but I always end up missing John & Rodney fiercely. I've already started to miss them, lol.

So my [community profile] mcsheppers posts will once again be posted every day. Sorry for the slack, guys~ This entry was originally posted at https://popkin16.dreamwidth.org/244682.html. Please comment there using OpenID.

 I'm writing a Practical Magic AU for the [community profile] atlantisfilmfestival. I've wanted to do it for aaaaages, because I love the idea of little Rodney wishing that his true love will be this impossible person so he'll never have to fall in love. And then John shows up *grins*

But a lot of the movie isn't about romance. It's about the sisters. I'm about 9k in and John hasn't even shown up yet, and I'm starting to feel like there's just not enough McShep in my McShep fic. I'm a McShep girl FIRST, always. The whole desire to write this fic was for Rodney's wish, even if I do find the witchy bits super fun.

There's also not enough time left for me to start another film fusion lol. The wonderful [personal profile] escriveine  assures me the fic is wonderful. But! But the boys! And their love!

Maybe I should write a really schmoopy McShep fic after I finish this. Just a quick one-shot. I have no ideas, but maybe it'll make me feel better. This entry was originally posted at https://popkin16.dreamwidth.org/244385.html. Please comment there using OpenID.

Sorry for the lack of daily McShep. I've been struggling lately with being interested in...anything. I've mostly just been devouring fic, because I haven't felt up to much more than that. I was sick a week ago with a touch fo the flu *sigh*

We hit a deer the other day with our car. We're okay! And the car still runs, but it completely broke the driver's side headlight. We have to replace the whole assembly too and none of the local stores seem to carry what we need, so I'm resorting to looking online. I have to be quick because I work late some nights and we'll get pulled over for not having a working headlight.

I also got my medical bills for my incident back in November, and - if I'm understanding this right - the hospital wants me to pay $10k, and the individual doctors want me to pay about $1300. I didn't have insurance at the time so it has to be paid out of pocket and it's like HAHA STRESS.

Luckily, it looks like I'll be participating in a mini-squee in Cleveland at the end of May. A desperately needed break - some days it feels like I'm hanging on by the skin of my teeth. It's making me worry a bit about money - do I have enough PTO for this and for October without shorting myself on bill money, etc.

I'm working on getting the next werewolf au chapter out so I can start working on my fic for the [community profile] atlantisfilmfestival. But as with everything lately, it's been a struggle, and I find myself turning to fic to disappear for a while.

Joe posted to instagram, which inspired [personal profile] brumeier  to write a cute little fic. I keep giggling at how skinny Joe's legs are.


I'm going to post this before I bring myself down any further and go read some McShep fic. And maybe redesign a house for sim!John-and-Rodney. And try to write, lol. I promise to post McShep stuff to [community profile] mcsheppers tonight! This entry was originally posted at https://popkin16.dreamwidth.org/243878.html. Please comment there using OpenID.

Hey guys! [community profile] atlantisfilmfestival is now open for posting. The minimum word count for a movie fusion is only 1k ;) There's even an ao3 collection :D This is a low-key festival, no sign ups or anything required. If you're inspired, write and post~ I know what I'd like to get done (mcshep Practical Magic au)!

After three years, my job has switched me from second shift to mostly first (with a couple second shifts thrown in). It's been a difficult transition for me. I've never been much of a morning person. Working second shift meant I could stay up a little later and sleep in more, which I haven't been able to do lately. I'm tired all the time. I haven't written anything in ages, and what I have written feels flat. Mostly I've just been reading...

I'm hoping I can force myself to finish the next chapter of my werewolf AU (which I already have a start on) and, if I finish quickly enough, maybe get something done for the Atlantis Film Festival. No promises though, given how dull I've been feeling lately.

I'm still plucking away at my [community profile] romancingmcshep fic. It's slow going, and not helped that I stupidly opened up Sims 4 two nights in a row - and thus lost two nights to it. But not this tonight!

I really wanted to cut out all the David & Patrick scenes from Schitt's Creek and create compilation videos to share the love. But vimeo only lets you upload so much, and youtube went "Copyrighted!" when I tried. I might just stick them in my dropbox and link to them, because David & Patrick are The Cutest. You can see some giftsets and such here on my tumblr. I even have a fic idea for them! A sentinel AU, because every fandom should have one.

Also, if you're not following [community profile] mcsheppers, you should be. I thought it wasn't fair that people who don't care for tumblr can't experience a steady stream of McShep stuff, so I've started crossposting. My McShep-Everyday tumblr posts 4 times a day. At the end of the day (because that's when I get out of work), I take the 4 posts and make sure they end up on dreamwidth and pillowfort. It does mean you get a sudden end-of-day McShep rush, but that's better than no rush at all. Also, it's like 95% screenshots. Still: their FACES amirite?

[personal profile] esteefee was generous and got me the Perfect Patio pack, which came with a hot tub. The deal was that I'd provide screenshots of Rodney using it. Sim!John joined Rodney without prompting, which lead to some very cute pics.

Cut for 6 picsCollapse )
