RPF: Things Unsaid  
Title: Things Unsaid
Author: [ profile] kadiel_krieger
Rating: R
Pairing: Jensen/Misha
Disclaimer: Real people are real. These are not.
Wordcount: 4,200
Summary: Jensen loses a bet and ends up accompanying Misha on a monastic retreat in Thailand. Also known as: a comment fic in response to this prompt that got out of control.

(Of all the things Jensen had planned to do with the six weeks of freedom otherwise known as hiatus, spending five days in transit wasn't one of them.)

Wishlists and sickness and writing, oh my.  
Here's the part where I return from an unannounced two week hiatus to ask you for shit. Except - not really. I have issues asking for a quarter for the vending machine even when I know I'll pay it back tomorrow. I'm going to grant some wishes this year though, so I thought perhaps my guilt complex might let me get away with wishlisting myself.

Cut for the meme )

If you've compiled a wishlist, I probably missed it in my absence and linking it in comments wouldn't be so much presumption as it would be a time-saving aid for me. I'll go seek out those I know are the most in need, of course. Just sayin'.

I don't have an explanation for disappearing except to say I was laid low by a cold for longer than I'd like and then I was spending a good amount of time sorting stuff out for [ profile] deancas_xmas. So, um hi?

I'm writing again, thank all that is holy, so I'm much less likely to cut a bitch or explode from lack of creative expression than I was two weeks ago. I see this as a boon since my bitch-cutting skills are rusty.

The Walking Dead continues to own me, as do the boys of SPN and I'm thrilled that I'll get to stare at their faces in the line at the grocery store instead of yet another EXCLUSIVE expose on Rob and Kristen's baby bump shenanigans. Sometimes.

I swear I do have actual things to say. There are just some really interesting memes making the rounds right now.

Anyway. Snagged from everywhere.

I think it would be fun to talk about stories, but the usual memes are like, "What happens next?" "Tell me about Character A?" Which isn't so much talking about stories as it is writing more of a story. But you know how sometimes you read something and you're like, "I got ___ out of this story, I wonder if I have that right?" or "What on earth was ____ supposed to be?" and it's too awkward to ask the author? Now you could totally ask!

I've heard people say that writing is hard because you have to make decisions, but we never really talk about the decisions we make with stories or why we make them. We talk about plot bunnies, but not about how we actually turn them into a story.

So, if you wanted, ask me questions! (Or use this to ask your flist to ask you questions).

What were you trying to do [here]? Why did you decide to ____? This is what I thought about xyz, is that what you were going for? What made you write ____? Why did you decide to do this? And so on.

I like talking about stuff like this, so please feel free :)

Writing Meme  
Stolen from everywhere.

How to know you're reading a story by [ profile] kadiel_krieger:

1. You think to yourself before you start reading: "I sort of remember her mentioning this six months ago."
2. There will typically be an abundance of cursing.
3. The characters think too fucking much.
4. The characters are not very good communicators.
5. There's a story behind the story or a purposeful choice in style to match subject matter.
6. The ending will lean towards happy or hopeful in most cases. Sometimes it will be what is best for the character and/or more realistic and as such will not appear to be traditionally happy.
7. Ugly-bumping will most likely occur in some form or fashion.
8. Let there be snark. Lots and lots of snark.
9. Boys will be boys. Sometimes they will play video games.
10. Jensen will be there either as himself or Dean. He is my fannish little black dress.

Am still working on those prompts y'all. I just haven't had much time this week. We lost a team member at work and I'm picking up all his slack. Then HP tomorrow night and dinner party with friends on Saturday. Life = busy.

give me a brainbug...not that kind, because ewww  
Wanted: Prompts! Gen prompts. Het prompts. Slash prompts. Meta prompts. I want to flex my muscles this weekend, but I'm not ready yet to jump back into a big project. Anon-prompts are totally welcome.

Fandoms: Primarily SPN/SPNRPF and Inception/InceptionRPF even though I have yet to pen anything. Would totally also give the following fandoms a go: Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Farscape, Six Feet Under, LOST, Alias, The Walking Dead, Dead Like Me.

As for pairings, I'll try anything. Hell, I've been pondering Joe/Misha that I refuse to look at directly because I fear it might hook me too hard. So, um, bring it. JDM/Jensen, J2, Castiel/Jo, Jensen/anything that moves.

*fistpumps* I couldn't possibly be more gleeful to get back to writing. Well, perhaps if someone were paying me to do it, but then it would be chore instead of joy and that never turns out well.

Also, it's Friday, y'all! Boys on my teevee.

Pondering Dean  
I was sitting here contemplating whether I'd rather explore pre-6.07 Dean or post-6.07 Dean when something occured to me...

If SPN is (as I would posit) Sam's story told from Dean's POV, couldn't the alleged dickish behavior we've witnessed lately be self-referential? By virtue of being filtered through Dean's POV, is it not possible that the narrative is colored by the judgment he inflicts on himself. Plus, he doesn't have Sam whole and functional to reflect his goodness back at him and so his self-image is skewed by the absence of Sam's soul.

I don't think it's outside the realm of possibility. Especially considering this season's focus so far on differing reflections and the importance of self.

Maybe I'm crazy. Maybe I'm not. Maybe I don't care and there will be more on this later regardless of my relative sanity.

Geeking: Neato Keen Plug-in  
Anyone who has Office and uses GoogleDocs as either their primary or backup storage location should at least try this plug-in. Why?

1. It's free.

2. It simplifies the sync between your MS Office Docs and Google Docs.

3. It's free.

I'll have more feedback once I see how it works offline, but when online I can open items in my Google Docs store directly from Microsoft Word in addition to setting permissions as if I were logged directly into GDocs. Yes, those dolphin noises you heard off in the distance a couple hours ago can totally be traced back to yours truly.

Anyway, give it a shot. It may make your life easier.


ETA: Link to original article that offers two other sync platforms that might be worth trying. Syncplicity definitely looks interesting. I haven't delved into the security aspect of it yet, but I intend to.

PSA: Flist Trim (Complete)  
I never like to do a cut, but I intended to do one at the beginning of the season and got distracted. Anyway.

Sometime this week I'll be cleaning up my flist. Mostly it will be folks who haven't posted in awhile or folks I friended/who friended me via memes and we never hit it off. If I cut you and for whatever reason you want to stay, just comment here.

Fandom/Genre: SPN RPS
Pairing(s): Jensen/Misha

Summary: No matter how insignificant the question, Jensen has always craved answers. The origami birds scattered in his path are no exception - each accompanying message more obscure and more pointed than the last. As he slowly becomes the proud owner of a growing paper menagerie, Jensen has to decide whether to follow the clues or follow his heart.

I don't even know where to begin, or how to properly frame my own experience with it. I can only say that I loved it and that you should read it. Perfectly satisfying.

Now to get cracking on the particulars for this year's [ profile] deancas_xmas challenge. I want to announce tomorrow and I haven't revised any of the rules. I fail at responsibility. Maybe I shall go read Hyperbole and a Half to make myself feel better. Only that's another distraction.

I grew up in the 'burbs and only fled to the cornfields of Urbana-Cham to get educated. Once I graduated, I began my slow migration southward but my parents still live in my childhood home and I visit the city of my heart at least once a year. Thanks and chocolates to [ profile] cassiopeia7 for additions, clarifications, and fact checking. I am, alas, no longer a native. I hope this doesn't reach those of you attending the con too late to be of any use.
