It's been too hot this week. In the 90s and humid. Not a great mix. So my mood is starting to drop, a lot, especially when combined with other issues. So, I ended up taking a lot of pictures today because it tends to cheer me up, or at least calm me down a bit.

The squirrels were not loving the afternoon heat from what I could tell and I managed to snap several pics of a few lounging in the trees. I even stepped off of the porch and took some of the pics from the ground under the trees. I also snapped several pics of sparrows and one of a robin. Oh, also a dragonfly up at the top of the dead tree.

I think this is my favorite picture of the day:

I'm not sure that I really have the words for this.

There's going to be more Stargate. A 10-episode digital series. That's exciting news enough, but...

It's going to be about Catherine Langford's early years.

It's going to be FEMALE-LEAD STARGATE.

Look at that beautiful thumbnail of A WOMAN in front of the Stargate:




ETA: Continuing to add icing to this delicious cake: the director is a woman.

There were a bunch of sparrows and a robin or two in the dead tree the other day, all at the same time. There were a lot more than I could get a pic of. It was like they were having a meeting. It didn't last very long, but it was a bit noisy.

Yesterday I was able to take a few not too blurry pics of a skunk in the yard around sundown. Picks of that and also a robin I took today under the cut... Read more... )

Character songs

Because I enjoy building playlists I figured why not give you all the chance to subject yourselves to this one?

Now I know what you're thinking, 'who gives a non-GMO gluten free vegan fuck about what songs you like to listen to while trying to reach your word count on Gabriel's story?'

well, friend - I agree. And yet here we are. So let me take you on a magical musical journey through links and my all-over-the-place music taste with explanations no one asked for;

Los Tiempos van Cambiando - This cover fits Gabriel's whole vibe pretty much on the dot. Spanish is very similar to the language he grew up speaking, and also happens to be the only language he enjoys singing in (new bit of character info there, you're welcome). That and he loves acoustic, laid back music.

Land of the Living - This reminds me of Christian and Gabriel's relationship as they grew up as teenagers together. It's optimistic and has a kind of hope in it that I feel like only Christian could make Gabriel feel, especially the line 'I was born to be free/you were born to free me'. Christian was the one to save Gabriel's life but as a result became the reason he's been tied to the royal family for so long, and yet he's the only one pretty much that can free him after certain events in their story unfold. I have a lot of feelings about these two, God help me.

Us - This is on the playlist simply because it describes pretty well how loyal Gabriel is towards the Prince. He would drop every and run to him, he'd give his life to keep him safe. Cries.

Demons - This is Gabriel in a nutshell. While he's made peace with what he is, what he's not okay with is Christian really seeing him as a Lycan - Christian is the only person who's shown him kindness and respect since he was sent away from his family, and while he knows what Gabriel is, Gabriel's terrified of Christian seeing him turn and then turning on him, or worse, feeling afraid of him.

Monster - Similar reason to 'Demons' tbh.

Long Lost Century - A much quieter, softer addition to the list, this was the song I was listening to when writing a particularly emotional scene between Christian and Gabriel.

Feel Invincible - Gabriel and Christian's relationship is built pretty solidly on supporting each other and building each other up. They both get a lot of shit from the people around them (granted for very different reasons) and so in a way they've become each other's reason to be brave and each other's reminder that they're stronger than they give themselves credit for.

Not Gonna Die - Hahaha, soo Gabriel gets really put through the wringer in his story. I'm really awful to him, I'm a terrible person - but yeah this song is A+ accurate for him in that respect.

Nobody 'cept you - It's a love song and suits them both, so sue me.

Brave - A song just for Christian! Sums him up nicely!

Take Me to Church - Just a gorgeous song that fitted a scene I was writing recently.

Come Healing - So, there's a part in the story in which Gabriel is subjected to a rather horrific beating, and Christian finds him and helps him afterwards. Lots of hurt, lots of comfort, but in general it's just a very minimal, very pretty song that fits the quieter moments between them.

I finished and posted my fic that I was writing for [community profile] fan_flashworks . It's not awesome, but it is done and I did enjoy writing it, mostly.  
I did not enjoy editing it though. I hate that part. A lot.
This is probably one of the longer fics I've written if not the longest. Not that I've written tons of fic or anything.

Okay I checked...this fic at 3,478 words is 1350 words longer than my previously longest posted work. Hmmm... wacky.

Very hot and humid today. Blah. I could really do with cooler days. I find it hard to motivate myself to do much of anything when it's like this. 

Oh, the latest issue of America (America Chavez solo comic from Marvel) has her teaming up with Kate Bishop (the other Hawkeye) for the issue (and next issue to it seems!) Very cool!!!

Stratos has never seen Jim's ship, aside from a few pictures Felix brought back for her. Her brother has been here many times, she knows. There's real curiosity in her eyes when the PINpoint drops them in his quarters and she has the chance to look about them. She doesn't know much of ships, and mere images didn't give her much sense of what to expect. There's none of the noise or the smell she expected subconsciously.

"This is... rather nice," she says, stepping back. It's more spacious than a captain's room on any ship she's been aboard. Warm without the scent of a fire. Sleek and neatly put-together as Jim likes to be himself. And there's a sense of... something all around them, like a muted enchantment. She can see why Felix spends so much time here.

Well, the most important one came with her, of course.

I finished the fic I've been working on for fan_flashworks. It was like pulling teeth at the end. Hot and humid doesn't make for the best writing days really. Especially without an air-conditioner. But I got it done. Now I have tomorrow and the early part of Thursday to make it suck less so I can post it in time.

It ended up being longer than I thought it would be. The first draft is about 3,500 words.

Full Playlist

Old Blind Dogs -- Is There For Honest Poverty

What though on hamely fare we dine
Wear hoddin grey, an' a that;
Gie fools their silks, and knaves their wine
A man's a man for a' that.

Peter Bradley Adams -- The Longer I Run

Tell my brother please not to look for me
I ain't the man that I used to be
And if my savior comes, could you let him know
I've gone away for to save my soul

Gregory Alan Isakov -- Second Chances

All of my heroes sit up straight
They stare at the ground, they radiate
Me, I'm mumbling in the kitchen for the sun to pay up
Lonely as a ring on a cold coffee cup

The Avett Brothers -- Head Full Of Doubt / Road Full Of Promise

There's a darkness upon me that's flooded in light
In the fine print they tell me what's wrong and what's right
And it comes in black and it comes in white
And I'm frightened by those that don't see it

AWOLNation -- Guilty Filthy Soul

Cause you gotta look her in the eye
And you gotta love your way of life
Cause you got a guilty, filthy soul
Don't you know it's out of your control

Young Dubliners -- If I Should Fall From Grace With God

If I should fall from grace with God
Where no doctor can relieve me
If I'm buried 'neath the sod
But the angels won't receive me
Let me go, boys
Let me go, boys
Let me go down in the mud
Where the rivers all run dry

Radical Face -- Ghost Towns

I've seen more places than I can name
And over time they all start to look the same
But it ain't the truth we chase
No, it's the promise of a better place

Keane -- Perfect Symmetry

Write page after page of analysis
Looking for the final score
We're no closer than we were before
Who are you? What are you fighting for?
Holy truth? Brother, I choose this mortal life
Lived in perfect symmetry
What I do, that will be done to me

Rachel Bloom -- Tell Me I'm Okay (Patrick)

Tell me I'm okay, Patrick
No pressure, but I seriously need to know
I realize your occupation is not gentle validation
But just this once, Patrick, give it a go
You represent the outside world 'cause you don't know me
Your perception of me is completely pure
You don't have an agenda, that's why I need you to lend a
Hand, Patrick--cause I think I'm fine, Patrick--
But I'm only, like, 43 percent sure
