Fic Day!

Okay. Today is the deadline for [livejournal.com profile] bsgficexchange. I didn't get my fic to the point I wanted, but I did reach an ending I think is satisfying. I'm going to reread it once I'm done this post, and then either send it now or send it at the end of the day, after seeing if I can make it any further. I might just send it, because of issues I'll talk about after the reveals and a character's head I can't really figure out. But I also really want to get started on [livejournal.com profile] twelvecolonies fics and get back to Agency, so... we'll see.

In other news, [livejournal.com profile] femgenficathon starts posting today!!!!

I probably won't read a vast majority of the stories, as they aren't in fandoms where I have the first clue, but I still adore the idea of this ficathon. Although I have a tendency to write the guys, I love the girls. This one has produced some great female-centric gen fic in the past, and I'm really, really looking forward to this thon regardless.

I did get my contribution in- I was done early on this one. I'm actually pretty pleased with this fic, and there are no bricks!!! It's happy and not fluffy but it's hopeful and it ends long, long before Sometimes A Great Notion, and it's just a fun fic with some anvilicious meta in it. :P For anyone who's interested, it's here:

Title: Broken Skies, Broken Sunsets
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lls_mutant
Fandom: Battlestar Galactica (new)
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: none
Prompt: 113: do authors who write Indian romances love the nation they endeavour successfully or unsuccessfully to describe? Do they, like Tecumseh, say, "And I, who love your nation, which is just, when deeds deserve it," or is the Indian introduced into literature but to lend a dash of vivid colouring to an otherwise tame and somber picture of colonial life? It looks suspiciously like the latter reason, or why should the Indian always get beaten in the battles of romance, or the Indian girl get inevitably the cold shoulder in the wars of love? -- Pauline Johnson (Tekahionwake--literally "double life" ) (1861-1913) Mohawk Canadian poet, short story writer, journalist and performer.
Summary: Growing up, Dee loved romance novels. As she got older, she noticed that something was really off about them.
Author's Notes Thanks so much to [livejournal.com profile] ivanolix and [livejournal.com profile] rose_griffes for the beta job!

Broken Skies, Broken Sunsets

And for Harry Potter Meme, Question 3. What House would you be in?

This is actually an interesting question. When I used to work with the youth group, years ago, I made them sort a list of 20 names, 5 of which were ours. The kids put me in every single house. One put me in Gryffindor, which I don't personally agree with. I'm not a very brave person. One put me in Hufflepuff, which I can see, especially because I have such an emphasis on family. One put me in Ravenclaw, which is probably my house of choice. But one put me in Slytherin, because as he put it, "you got your Ph.D. How much more ambitious can you get?" Which, yeah, but I also really liked working at the USDA, partly because it was low pressure.

I think Ravenclaw is probably the best match for me, but Slytherin and Hufflepuff are logical, too. I'm just not a Gryffindor.
