2. If you don't follow artword, hie ye to it and check out iambickilometer and kiki_miserychic's totally amazing entry. The vid is an almost spooky look at Sheppard and his sketchiness, and the fic is... I hate to use the word haunting, because I think people misuse it so much, but that's what it is.
2a. Speaking of artword (yes, they are paying me by the link), the deadline got pushed back a week, thank god. Somehow, my portion of me and antares04a's contribution is teetering at the edge of 6000 words. I'm curious to see if I end up doubling my longest standalone to date (which, contrary to what I thought, is neither Results May Vary nor Four Blatant Lies, but New Beginnings, which hardly counts since it was originally serialized). If I top 6684 words, it'll be the third longest thing I've written including multipart fic, behind the Disclosureverse and the first HP fic I ever wrote (about which the less said the better).
WTF, y'all. I can't remember the last time I worked this much on a single story- I spent longer writing Four Blatant Lies, but that's because I left it alone for several weeks thinking, "This is too silly for anyone but me to enjoy."
3. I just don't get it- not the pingbacks, because I've been dying for the feature ever since LJ Seek gave up the ghost- but the fact that none of the commenters know what pingbacks are.
I just keep reading these comments and thinking, "Have these people ever left LJ before?"
4. I am off to drink tequila, fry up some pork chops (I have them marinating in soy sauce, mirin, and blood orange juice- it's going to be pretty epic), and write a completely different fic (which will probably make gaffsie very happy).
ETA: 5. SGA fen: can somebody link me to that picture that was going around of Robert Picardo wearing Jason Momoa's dreadlock wig? I've yet to see it.
