I'm the anon that posted here.



THAT REACTION IS AWESOME.

Well, I've chosen my 12 names. I think I've got a good mix, from fairly realistic to Glee levels of exotic (we are talking, after all, about a show that had a female Quinn, and a Finn, who dated each other). I kind of went with a measure of how unusual the actual actors' names were, as well. I debated just using the actor names as character names, but the fact that one girl is named McKynleigh--when the show's school is William McKinley High School, often just referred to as McKinley--just made that feel unlikely and weird. In one case I did use their actual first name as the character's last name--Ellis was the name that was pushing me toward the "just use the actor names!" because seriously, how cool is Ellis as a first name for a girl?

I might be a bit biased, though, I used some names that reference things that have meaning to me. (Parker? Totally my niece's middle name, that I really wish she would use--and she may, when she gets to be a teenager and there's seven Madisons in her classes. Things like that.)

I have also started plotting out the relationships and--GAH. This is going to be fairly fun, methinks.

The hard part is going to be coming up with music--much as I love it, I'm not that up on the latest top 40, and my musical taste is, well, only mine. Musicals and oldies often elude me, at least until they use them on the show. But we'll manage.

And now it's time for the new episode. =) And dinner.

I added the five drabbles I wrote for the Kickstart Meme, you can check the list on the front page. =)

You Are Self-Assured



You are grateful for this life you've been given. You feel blessed for what you have.

You aren't about to apologize for who you are. You know you're not perfect, but you're still pretty darn great.



You are autonomous and fulfilled. You know how to make yourself happy.

You connect easily to other people. You can bond with almost anyone if you're given enough time.





Just got back from the ASUMH fireworks, which are probably the best in the state outside of the Little Rock area. Maybe Fayetteville. And next weekend we're going to St. Louis and I'll get to see EVEN BETTER ones. YAY!

Also just finished watching the Glee Project for this week (lol the next one's on tomorrow) and one of my favorites got kicked off (it isn't really a vote so much as Ryan Murphy gets to pick out of the bottom 3) so that's just kind of pushing me even harder to work on my AU idea.

Other stuff to write first. Getting on that now.

I added a list of fanfic recommendations to my site; so far it's only for Animorphs and Glee because that's all I've really read in recent memory.

And it'll probably get a lot added to it.

Dammit. I just thought of one I forgot.

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing or character of your choosing. In return, you are challenged to post this in your own journal, regardless of your ability level- or not as you wish.

1. Marco/Jordan for [livejournal.com profile] rattyjol 
2. Eva for [livejournal.com profile] lisacharly 
3. Puck/Lauren for [livejournal.com profile] smiley_face86 
4. Kristie/Li for [livejournal.com profile] infernalearache 
5. Rachel and Jake for [livejournal.com profile] natural_blue_26 
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Somehow I doubt I'll even get ten. I'm only committing to minifics (think, like, within an LJ comment length) but obviously if your prompt is just SO BRILLIANT it could turn into more. Also, limiting the fandoms to Glee/Animorphs/LotR/Lost, because I DON'T want to have to do research, lol.

Meme ganked from [livejournal.com profile] rattyjol of awesome Animorphs fic. =D

PS: Shelly...don't prompt my chapter, I'll get to it, I swear!

So. It's basically American Idol, only instead of a recording contract the prize is a 7-ep role on Glee. (I imagine if your character got enough fanbuzz or whatnot you'd get to stay.) And it's entertaining enough--Darren was on there last night, there were four or five music numbers and IDK I'll probably be watching it faithfully because, let's face it, there's pretty much jack shit else on to watch anyway since most things are between seasons, and it'll help me survive the Glee summer hiatus.

(That and the concert movie coming out in August. Cannot. WAIT.)

I'm already rooting for Scottish Accent kid, and Girl Who Is 18 But Looks 10, and Big Fabulous Black Diva Guy, even though he's like...Kurt and Mercedes' lovechild?

Point being, I'm already kind of invested, and most/all of the people on there are interesting, and I'm not 100% sure who I want to win (ie who I actually want on the show).

And then I thought...what if they could pick more than one?

And then I thought...what if they could just use them all?

And then I thought...DAMMIT BRAIN I CANNOT WRITE A GLEE AU WITH TWELVE OCs BASED ON THESE PEOPLE. I CANNOT.

DOES MY BRAIN LISTEN?

No. OF COURSE NOT.

I am already scheming as to who ends up in Glee right away, who would take time to come around, who to pair up with whom (both with original castmembers and each other...)

Should I? It'd be like...my summer writing project. I'd wrap it up before the new season started, obviously, because MOST MASSIVE AU EVER. Also I don't have a plot per se but I would be open to taking feedback and running with it. I could write a chapter a week-ish. This would be my cast, lol.

Five Times Puck and Rachel Broke Up and the One Time They Didn't can be found here, at the bottom. Prompted by [livejournal.com profile] smiley_face86. =D

It's (obviously) Puckleberry, but there's a smattering of Kurt/Klaine references. =)
rena_librarian: (Default)
Mother's Day-themed Klaine fluff can be found here, at the bottom of the page: Family Dynamic

I got it up before I went to bed on Mother's Day. It still counts, right?
rena_librarian: (Default)
Both my competition-winning fic, Rachel's Last Stand, and a new Animorphs ficlet, Poetic Justice, can be found here. LOOKIT MY SHINY BANNER. IT MATCHES. AND IT WASN'T EVEN PLANNED.

Piece of Glee art, here.

And new Glee fanfiction here: Blaine It On the Alcohol. This is...mostly fluff and gap-filling. But it was fun to picture and fun to write.

Just spoke with the mod, and the poll will be open until about 5 AM, my time. (Central time. GMT -6 and whatnot.) The voting is so close they wanted to be sure and give the full week to vote, instead of cutting it short by a few hours. Because it might actually count.

So I'll be able to check in the morning while I get ready for work. There's no way I'm staying up, not when I have to work tomorrow, and it's already too late for me to go to bed early enough to get up that early. (I could try, but I'd snooze through my alarms, I know I would, and then I'd end up being late to work, so...yeah.)

On the bright side, win or lose, I'll be putting it on my website tomorrow after work.

AND another Glee fic that I revised tonight.

AND an Animorphs ficlet. (It's <400 words.) I'm the least sure about this one. It's dark and twisted and kind of..."adult." For me.

*IS DYING*

I leapt out of bed, almost literally, a few moments ago, when the thought struck me that I might be able to see whether or not I'd won.

Nope. Voting still open.

GAH.
rena_librarian: (Default)
Glee fanart. I put it on DA, too, because it's my submission for a collage for Chris Colfer's 21st birthday that they're getting together, but if it wasn't for that I wouldn't've. But I want to leave my DA there so I can watch people and comment and stuff.

It's not the greatest, I know. I kind of hate my style. But I wanted to contribute.

Whether my Animorphs fic wins or not, I'll be putting it on there, too, as soon as I'm allowed. But DAMN do I want to be able to put that nice, shiny custom banner in the description. *dies a little*

They're supposed to announce the winner tomorrow.

So when are they gonna close the freaking poll???

*bites nails*

*not really, broke that habit a long time ago*

ZOMG

Who's obsessively refreshing the voting post to see what changes have taken place?

NOT ME. NO WAY. NOT AT ALL.

*halo*
rena_librarian: (axcinnabon)
The voting is up and OMG I wish I could tell you to vote for me. ASDFJKL!

The competition is even tighter than last time--last time there were 5-6 entries for each category. This time there are two fanarts and three fanfics. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. So I have a better shot, maybe? I'm reading the other entries now, already chose my vote for fanart.

ETA: Can't vote for myself, obvs. But voted, and saw who's voted for what...and OHHHH really the voting is going to last a week? I think I might die between now and then. *flails*

ETA2: It's here, if anyone's interested, but again, I can't say which entry is mine. I really want to win so I can put the banner on my site when I post it! =D

That is all.


(Oh, and if you go here, there's a never-before-published Glee fanfic: "The Sex Talk." In which Blaine insists that Kurt needs...educating, and then Burt wonders just why Blaine was so insistent that Kurt needed...educating.)

(Also, while there's an Animorphs fic section set up, it is sadly empty so far. But I'm working on it!)

(And if you encounter anything not working, please let me know!)

...so I'm basically posting this to get squeals, but:

I started (as in, each is now in a separate document of its own and each contains at least ten paragraphs) four Animorphs fanfics last night.

They all have Rachel in them, three of the four have Tobias. (This is a bit odd; I'm a T/R shipper but it's Tobias that I love as a character.)

No ETA on anything, I've suddenly developed a problem staying in the correct tense and IDK where that came from.

This isn't even counting the one that I'm rereading the end books to write.



Tonight's Glee was actually way better than I expected--it's the first one in a while that I am actually wanting to watch again, even though I just saw it. Not that it's not always good, but usually listening to the new songs is enough for a while--and I was kind of thinking this one would be more filler-y than it was. So yay!

memes under here )


So I was reading comments in a thread on [livejournal.com profile] animorphs and got ideas for like FOUR more fics. In addition to the ones I'm already researching.

At least none of them will require copious amounts of research. =P

I keep talking about creative ideas I've been having and then not producing anything (yet) and I feel like I'm being a shameless tease and I really don't mean to be.

But I'm writing in another window right now.

I just went on Facebook and deleted all links to my other sites. Facebook is pretty much where I play nice and have a profile so extended family/parents' friends/etc can contact me. Most of the people I'm friends with (that I interact with, anyway) there are not the kind to wrap their head around fandom and such--Facebook is where I censor myself for my audience. LiveJournal is not. I won't be linking to my website there, either.

To better illustrate the point: I'll post on Facebook that I'm looking forward to Glee, but I wouldn't dream of linking to my Klaine fanfic, because there are people that would be angry with me. Homophobic redneck cousins, for instance.

Ne'er the twain shall meet, as they say.

Still working on the site. I have a bit of a quandary--I kind of want to delete my FFN and FOSFF accounts, but I went to FFN yesterday to see what I had originally written for a summary on a story I was putting on the site, and clicked through and realized that I gotten a lot of really lovely reviews. I can't think of any not-stupid-looking way to import them, but I don't want to lose them. I suppose I could always just copy-and-paste them and save them for my own self (and I imagine this is what WILL happen), but...sigh.
