Sorry I haven't been posting a lot lately, f-listers. It's been drawn to my attention. I have been slowly working on writing stuff, but nothing's ready for posting yet.

Mostly I've just been a bit down so if I talk/type too long I start complaining about the miserable waste of life I am and how I've made absolutely nothing of myself, so I'm generally trying to avoid making too many posts on any social media. I really want to remove myself from the social pool in RL right now too, but I don't know how I would explain it. "I don't want to attend such-and-such event because I'm a miserable cunt" isn't an excuse I'd like to hear, so it's not one I'd like to give. But when I turn up for things I do nothing but bitch and moan about things that don't matter, so I'm just waiting for someone to tell me to gtfo really. It's just stress, I suppose, even though life's exactly as it has been for the past few years. For me, at least. Other people seem to be getting somewhere, so idk.

TL;DR - Not been posting because I'm not good company lately. Quite frankly, I'm sick of myself.

DeanCasBigBang - Still 1483/20000. Really need to plan this out and get on it.
The Unnamed Fic - 16,728 words. I was supposed to tastefully fade to black, but it looks like I'm writing another sex scene.
Snapshots about Destiel's OFC Daughter - Still 6/30.
Debriel Mini - 6006/5000! So I wrote 6 words since last update. Huh.
The Mark Sheppard Project - Still 3 things watched, 2 things iconed, 1 thing ficced
Crazy!Dean - Still 4351 words.

I'm currently giving up caffeine, which is giving me issues. More issues than I'd expected. Attention span is short and headaches are interfering with writing. Been spending a lot of time creeping around [livejournal.com profile] norsekink and [livejournal.com profile] avengerkink like an old man cruising for hookers.

The Student Nationals in Cardiff went well! Not only did my University come 2nd overall, but I won my category so I got a flag, a dice bag with dice, a poster and a certificate. Hooray! Apparently I was 'the most devious and underhanded Ventrue vampire' the GM had ever seen. :D Back at work and still recovering from being ill for my entire holiday, but you can't have everything.

Angst Bingo - 5/25. Deadline's up soon :(
DeanCasBigBang - 1483/20000. It has begun! I'm happy with how visual it is so far.
The Unnamed Fic - 16,410. I pretty much want to stay at home and write this forever.
Crowley/Dean snapshots - Still 12/30.
Snapshots about Destiel's OFC Daughter - Still 6/30
Debriel Mini - 4344/5000. Still stuck.
The Mark Sheppard Project - 3 things watched, 2 things iconed, 1 thing ficced

Forgive me Father, it has been a week or so since my last LJ post.

I've been cutting down rather harshly on the caffeine (I won't bore you with details of what is a literal caffeine addiction), and it means I'm knackered and short on attention most of the time. I get in from work, shower, eat, then stare at a blank Word page while dithering off to read fic every 10 minutes.

I am still enjoying the nameless epic I'm working on at the moment that's both Crowley/Dean and Castiel/Dean. It's just hit 14k words. Not sure I want to post until it's all finished though, because at the moment there's no end in sight.

Also gotta decide on a plot for the [livejournal.com profile] debriel_mini, which will be taking sign-ups soon. Go see! I had thought of a plot, but then it became clear that it was more appropriate for the [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang, which is also on soon.

I was so proud of how much money I've saved this week (I managed to live off £15 this week!) that I decided to dare treat myself (a v.rare thing indeed), took a trip down memory lane and downloaded an old Simcity game for £10 off EA.

Obviously (in retrospect) my HP notebook can't play the damn thing.

So from feeling proud of myself to slapping myself in the face in one swoop. I paid via debit card too, not credit card, so in all likelihood won't be able to claim the money back tomorrow.

I'm such a fucking idiot. The only reason I'm posting this here instead of on Facebook is because I don't want my RL friends to know I'm such a fucking idiot.

I stayed up late downloading the bastard, eager to play it, and now I just feel stupid and sad.

So Sarkywoman, what have you done today?

Well, I had a lie-in since I have work tomorrow, then I showered and went to the shop for some groceries. The far away one, since I wanted a change. Then had a nice meal out, went to a friend's...

No. What have you done that your F-list actually give a crap about?

Oh. I have just spent some time writing graphic Crowley/Dean porn for a new fic I've been working on for some time now. It goes AU after 6x22. The basic premise is that Godstiel is trying to get his claws into Dean in sexy dreamwalking ways, but Dean still wants to save everyone, Cas included. So he hunts down Crowley and starts asking how powerful a deal can be. Crowley's willing to try and stop Castiel in exchange for Dean's soul, but he needs a little something extra to sweeten the deal... It's currently at about 6400 words. 2500 of those words are porn. Considering how much I struggle to write porn, I'm proud of myself. :D

It was Pancake Day, so after work (which sucked) I ate a lot of pancakes which were ably made by my friend Lianne. Then I had my shower and supposedly settled in to continue writing a fic I have started where Gabriel puts Sam in a world where Jess didn't die and Sam wasn't tainted by Azazel's blood (though Mary still died). What has actually happened so far is that in my utterly morbid way I got through my timeline to 'The Phantom Traveller', wondered how many people might have been on the flight, then spent an hour reading about tragic plane accidents online, with special attention to ones that upset me when I first heard about them! Wtf brain!

*back to writing Sam angst*

I hate amnesia plots.

So the fact that it's going to be canon, and that it's already the inspiration for a lot of fanfiction, is making me very miserable.

*goes back to making Mark Sheppard icons and frowning at the internet*

Writing my first How I Met Your Mother fanfiction. Think it'll be Ted/Barney. It's for my [livejournal.com profile] au_bingo prompt, 'Post-Apocalyptic'. Yeah, I know, random.

Also got into a massive row with my brother's new mother-in-law. And I mean new. He got married last weekend and though she added me as a friend on FB, I hadn't actually spoken to her yet. Then she attacked my brother's anti-SOPA post, essentially calling him an immature thief. I argued with that retarded bigot (and trust me, that description isn't because of her stance on this issue) until my brother's new wife told everyone they were being disrespectful and we should know better than to debate the law.

I was so angry I was shaking. The joke is, I was perfectly objective and rational throughout, but the way they responded (caps and inaccurate rants about how dangerous pirates are to the youth of today) I might as well have made it personal to get some fun out of it. At one point the woman told me not to whine because there was no such thing as freedom. Wtf.

I have 4 fics ready to post in December. That's not many.

In my defence:

1. Skyrim is addictive.
2. My writing mojo dies whenever my computer does.
3. The 'black mass' one is being handwritten and involves much sitting around glaring at my notebook and trying to ignore the television.
4. I've just come down with a pesky bug. It's hard to write a fic with good ambience when you have to pause in the middle of every sentence to grab a new tissue.
5. I start a new job on Monday and I'm crapping my pants over it. 9-5 office sales shit like a good little adult. To say I'm nervous would be an understatement. I'm terrified. God I wish I could find something I'm good at to do for a living!
