Back in Fandom

June 18th, 2007 (02:38 am)

current location: London
current mood: tired

Well, sort of.  That's the plan anyway.

The last week and a half has been a whole big bunch of crazy.  I had to go to my friend's funeral, organise the reading of her play, go to the reading my play, put the finishing touches on my play script (which I'm handing in tomorrow) and meet with my dissertation supervisor.  I spent all weekend working on my play, to the point where I actually feel a little like I've been binge drinking - I desperately need to shower and wash my hair, I don't really remember any details about the last day or two, and there's a slight whiff of self-hatred in the air.

Mainly I'm just tired - and a little sad, still, though that's not exactly a surprise.  But once I've given my play in, I'm taking a break.  Maybe only for a day or two, as I really have to write the last chapter of my thesis (given everything that's happened, I pushed it completely to the backburner), but I really want to lie around and watch DVDs and write fic and think about Aerin.  I want to say thanks to everyone who posted on my journal or offered their sympathies in the last few weeks - I know I wasn't especially responsive, but just knowing I wasn't alone helped more than I can say.

I especially want to write fic.  I really want to finish Left Behind and The Best Ship of All before Deathly Hollows, and while that may be a little ambitious, I think I can do it.  Now that I've finished term things should be a little less hectic, and I can update more often.

So, yeah, back in fandom at last!  It's going to be a crazy few weeks.

And now, my second fic rec:  Erotic Memoirs of A Soulful College Girl
If you're into The OC at all, if you watched even a single episode from the fourth season, read this fic.  Trust me, it's perfect - I didn't know anyone could get Taylor's voice so well.

Fandom is a good salve for when RL sucks. And fic is good respite.
