So, I think part of my struggle with this fic is that is has major flashbacks.  (I would say that the word count for the three flashbacks is going to be around the same number of words as the main plot.)  I'm trying to decide if I should scrap the idea of the flashbacking and just write it in a linear way (which I think takes away from the fic a bit but may be more cohesive...) or cut back the flashback scenes.  *headdesk*[Poll #1665570]
So I'm 99.9% committed to writing a Tangled fic for my [ profile] scifibigbang story (and a Halo one *surprise surprise*) but I'm torn between two ideas, so which is better?

1. Five Times Rapunzel Declined Flynn's Proposal and the One Time She Didn't

Er, I think the plot should be pretty self-explanitory. LOL

2. Rapunzel and Flynn's Excellent Adventure (No...that's not the title.  Though the more I think about it, the more awesome it sounds...LOL)

Basically, it would be about a newly married Rapunzel and Flynn go on an journey where they meet dragons, mermaids and pirates (elves? wizards? dwarfs? hobbits? LOL) and learn a few things about themselves.

Dude, I am so torn.

Got a new fandom.

*points at icon*

I'm really reconsidering writing my Sci-fi/Fantasy Big Bang story in the Tangled fandom.  Think of it...Rapunzel and Flynn with dragons, mermaids, and Vikings (or maybe pirates...), oh my! (And let's not forget Pascal and Max, right?)

Speaking of the [ profile] scifibigbang , sign-ups start in about a month on the 1st and, yes, I'm expecting to see some of you sign-up.  Rough drafts aren't due until July 1.  That's like an epic amount of time.  Personally, I think Laura should write a Sherlock/SGA big bang fic, but that's just me, LOL.

More details will be coming out in the next couple of weeks, after I finalize things with my co-mod. But the min word count is 25k, so start your muses people! :D :D

So, I guess I wrote just a few stories in 2010. Just a few, ROFL.  Most of these are linked to AO3 (Because I love them!)

It's all about the meme!! )

Got my Yuletide story which I just love to pieces *huggles*

Go! Read! Review! It is awesome in it's Toy Story awesomeness!

Rescue Mission
Yuletide madness is open...You didn't have to sign up for yuletide to play (though you do need an AO3 account). 

Who knows? You might find something inspiring on the spreadsheet that your Muse can write! (The stories are suppose to be under 1k, so that should be easy...if you manage to write a story over 1k, then it goes in the main archive.)

I've already written three treats...they're tons of fun to write! :D :D
Merry (early) Christmas to all my buddies! *hugs you all*

Yay or nay? 

ETA: So I'm gonna go with "nay" :D :D

5.5 inches (or 14 cm for all you non-US folks) of rain in three days? (Plus, we're expected to get close to another 2 inches today.)

I thought I lived in a desert. o.O

(And the 30mph gusts of winds are always lovely too.)
Because, really, they had to be created:

Another glimpse into the Jess household:

Me: Look what my friend Cazz sent me. *holds up Patrick Stewart pic while flailing*
Mike: That's too cool. How do you know all these people anyway?
Me: I told you, the internet. You do remember talking with people through that, don't you?
Mike: Ha ha...And you know people from...
Me: Outside the US? Well, the ones I talk to the most are from Scotland, England, Japan, The Netherlands, and Croatia.
Mike: So you guys are like the International Fangirl League.
Me: You've got it.

I love my husband.
Seriously? I wanna poster of this.  Now.  (Well, the text free version anyway.)

Oh, Bungie, I love you.
Comment below with your answer.

ETA: The more I see the icons/gifs of Tangled, the more I wanna see it. It looks so cute...And how can you deny the smolder? LOL  (by [ profile] jackdawsonsgrl )[ profile] jackdawsongrl
I know. All Sparrabeth (did I get the combo name right?) fans will be crying, but seriously.  It's Captain. Jack. Sparrow.

The trailer...

I'm still thinking "Srly? Zombies? Wut?" ROFL

On an interesting side note, my sister's ex-boyfriend's uncle wrote the screenplays for all the Pirates movies.  She got to go to the premiere of the last  movie at Disneyland...and get the whole red carpet gift bag and stuff.  Er, I guess that plays right into the "all Southern Californians are connected to Hollywood" stereotype...
Episode: Home
Author's Notes: This is for [ profile] jeyla4ever who requested a pic fic in her Christmas wish list.  On a side note, I cannot believe how long it's been since I have done a pic fic (seriously...a year?) For a list of most of my other pic fics, they are here

Title: Passing the Torch
Rating: G/K
Characters: Catherine Halsey, Cortana
Spoilers: If you haven’t beaten the campaign on Reach, then you probably don’t wanna read this.
Summary: But now was not the time for regret or sorrow. She, like Cortana, John and the others aboard the Autumn had a mission she needed to complete.
Author’s Notes: I did my best to keep true to both “The Fall of Reach” and Halo: Reach, but some things  were different…so I went with the game’s canon. :D Feedback, as always, is love.

“Have you made your decision about who is going to transport the Package?” )

A stocking. )

Author's Notes: First of all, a big thanks to [ profile] just_a_dram  for running the [ profile] aiw_big_bang .  Secondly, this story wouldn't have come into play without the original idea of [ profile] chrismata1976  which can be found here and was used as a springboard for this story.  So a big THANK YOU for her idea.  Also, a big shout out goes to [ profile] skellagirl  who made some wonderful, awesome art *points above* Be sure to drop her some feedback, here.  Thanks so much!!
Finally, a huge, enormous, gigantic thanks goes to my alpha/beta/cheerleader/sounding board [ profile] manniness.  She patiently sat through dozens of "I'm never gonna finish this story!!11!!!1!" messages, listened to a very skewed orginal idea, constantly encouraged me throughout the Big Bang and made this story better with her mad skills as a beta  (Seriously, one day I'll learn to use "had", LOL).  Thank you, dude! :D :D
