Wow, it is a GORGEOUS morning out! Not a cloud in the sky, and not too hot. We are so playing outside today. (Just not in our own yard, as hubby needs to mow.) And I pulled 13 ripe tomatoes out of the garden yesterday. I foresee tomato-mozzarella salad.

[livejournal.com profile] bsg_bigbang gave an extension!!! September 20! Whoohoo! On the one hand, I still am at the point where I just want to finish this fic. I want it DONE. But on the other hand, it makes beta turn around easier, and it means I can take my time on the details. Which is good, because I know there are some small scenes I need to put in and some rewrites and all that. Plus, my mom comes in a few days and leaves on September 6, and I really don't know how much I'll get accomplished when she's here. PLUS, that gives [livejournal.com profile] kappamaki33 more time to finish both of her fics and me time to finish the art for her second one. I'm still a little nervous about starting this second picture and posting them at all, because my art isn't horrid but it's not like some of the people's I've seen where my mouth drops open at their talent, but oh well.

However, speaking of big bangs, Narcho... a word? I know you've got someone else in your body right now. That someone else is NOT Jayne Cobb. Just because this is a Joss Whedon invention in space does not mean we pick a Joss Whedon character from space and put him in your body. That's NOT how this works! Okay, okay, yeah, it IS really funny, but the problem is this scene is NOT supposed to be funny, okay? If you MUST be Jayne, do it subtly, like Racetrack. (Don't think I don't know you're not being Zoe over there.)

Futurama is on tonight, and it sounds like a good one. And Katee Sackhoff is voicing. I was going to watch anyway, but after reading the episode synopsis, I'm really looking forward to it. I haven't been turning cartwheels over the new episodes, but they've been good enough to watch. We've also been working slowly through Farscape. We're still in Season 1, but I can tell you that hubby's stopped mocking it :) Aeryn Sun is still my absolute favorite and the incredibly best part of the show and I'm not sure that's EVER going to change (as long as she doesn't pull an Adama :P ), but D'Argo and Rigel are fast growing on me. I'm still lukewarm on Zhaan and we just added Chiana, whose mannerisms annoy me, but hopefully they'll both grow on me even more. But D'Argo has the whole forbidden love plotline (um, yeah, major kink for me) and Rigel is just that great mix of repulsive and can be noble... ::considers a crossover where Tom Zarek and Rigel meet.::

One thing that does make me sad is it looks like BSG has been removed from [livejournal.com profile] crack_van's regular fandom list. :P Oh well.

On a more cheerful note, one of the [livejournal.com profile] twelvecolonies challenges involved making picspams with a brain twin. The idea is you both do a picspam on the same topic without comparing and then post them. [livejournal.com profile] whatever_lj and I did Battlestar Galactica takes the Bechdel Test. Hers is here and mine is here. What I think is really fascinating is that there were a couple of times we picked the same scene and we had different opinions on whether it passed or failed. We also managed to pick some very different scenes as well, sometimes even in the same episode. This was a really, really fun challenge, and I think it's one of the best graphics challenges that [livejournal.com profile] twelvecolonies has had.

This concludes this bout of utter and complete geekiness for the day. Now to get some boys up and start thinking about playing outside!

A crossover where Tom Zarek and Rigel meet - OMG the awesome! Please write that, even if it's just a short I can sniff the virtual testosterone from here scene. I started liking Rygel pretty early, but by mid-season 3 he scored as high as Aeryn (and she just kept getting better). Zhann really took a lot of time to warm up to simply because she seemed so remote. But there were a couple of episodes early Season 2 that really helped me understand her character.

I have to get through more Farscape, but it is pretty awesome. Aeryn is pretty awesome. I also really like the Aeryn/D'Argo friendship. And I'm not hating Zhaan, but you've hit the nail on the head- she's just so remote. I'm looking forward to Season 2 then!

Hmmm. I might need to find me a Farscape icon soon!

Zarek and Rigel, sometimes you scare me. May next year's big bang could be BSG/Farscape. Ooops, let you finish this years first. Looking forward to it and am so glad you're getting the extra time, I'm sure there are others jumping for joy with you. And mom visits are always more pleasant when they don't coincide with deadlines.

How can you be Jayne and not be funny. I mean I assume your not giving Narcho a knit cap, but still. Good luck with the oxymoronic 'subtle Jayne' invades Narcho's body experience. And may you find the proper balance of Moore/Wheadon on the brain. Funny or not.

I think Zarek and Rigel could just be...one of those alliances where everyone laughs at them at first and then says "oh shit" later :)

It doesn't have to be Jayne being subtle in Narcho's body- it just has to be subtle that it's Jayne. Actually, making him Jayne sort of gives me a personality to play with and rules to follow, but I also don't want it to be a distraction that it's Jayne here. Big emotional scene here :P

But the knit cap would be funny :)

That comment about Noel made me LOL!!

[livejournal.com profile] crack_van dumped us? That hurts!

Enjoy the nice day! I'm jealous! Not only is it hot here, but there must be a wildfire nearby as it's hazy and smoky and there's ash dropping from the sky.

I know! They dumped us! That made me sad. It feels like it didn't take them long, either. ::sigh:: On the other hand, fic is most definitely getting thinner on the ground.

Hope your wildfire clears up! We've had a really nice day outside so far- I'll have to see what the kids want to do after naps.

I'm pretty pleased about that Big Bang extension -- I still need to finish five or six scenes, plus beta. This'll make my weekend a lot less crazy.

Guess this means I should have done my homework last night instead of writing...! :P

LOL. Probably!

Yeah, I was pretty sure I wasn't the only one dancing. I could have done it, but I can do a lot better job with the two extra weeks. (And I'm sure the artists appreciate them, too!)

Yep, the big bang extension made me pretty happy, too.

And in a variation of [livejournal.com profile] grey_sw's dilemma, I now have no decent excuse to slough off on my homework tonight...

ne thing that does make me sad is it looks like BSG has been removed from [info]crack_van's regular fandom list. :P Oh well.

I'M PISSED. We've had lots of recs lately. I know because I subscribe to the email BSG tag. I would have signed up again had I known!
