Just saw the new Star Trek movie, and I got to say, not impressed.

Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite t.v show



Spock's Brain. Yeah, I don't have much to say about that one.


Days under here )


Health Update: I've been sleeping like, twenty hours a day here lately. Or rather, lying in bed dosing in and out for a few hours, then sleeping about fifteen hours straight, before waking up and dosing again. My mother is freaked out and is insisting on getting me admitted to the hospital so they can figure out what's going on faster. I'm not really down with this plan, but it looks like I'm going to be dragged there against my will.

Oh, and I slept through my alarm Monday, and consequently, my job interview. So that's not happening now.
Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite t.v show

That would be The Devil in the Dark.

I've always loved that episode. I don't know, it might not be the most exciting one, what with Kirk and Spock just searching through mine tunnels looking for some mysterious killing rock blob, but I love it.

I love Bones complaining about not being a bricklayer, I love the slight discord between Spock and Kirk (to kill the thing or not?) I love the perfectly circular eggs, I love how creative the creature was, how it was silicon based rather than carbon and how it could apparently move through rock as easily as we can air, and of course, the whole "No kill I" scene gets me every time.




The creature was just so sad and a little pathetic with it's bad grammar that it made this weird rock blob strangely adorable.

Day 04 - Your favorite show ever

So, I was having a hard time deciding between Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Supernatural. I fell in love with the characters of both shows, both inspired me to write more than any other show, and I got seriously into both of shows--talking to the TV, jumping up and down when something great happens, crying when something sad happens. But the thing is, I've just recently discovered both of these shows, and am still riding the high that comes with falling in love with a show (and with a fandom), I don't now if my love for Buffy will fade with time (I doubt it) or if my passionate obsession with Supernatural will stop soon after the series end. (I hope not.)

So I'm not going to pick either.

Instead, I'm going to talk about a show I grew up with, and have loved all my life and that love has never faded. I seriously doubt it ever will.




Star Trek (TOS)


I have SO much love for this show. I love the cheesy music and the dramatic lighting. I love the way Shatner pauses in his speeches and how the camera will close up on him all the time. I love the Styrofoam sets and how all the rocks Kirk picks up for weapons look like they way less than a pound. I even love how Kirk finds and abandons a love interest almost once an episode, and I love how ridiculously easy his shirts ripped.

I especially love the ridiculous alien costumes. Like this one, for example:




But most of all I love how, in contrast to other sci fi stories like Star Wars or The Matrix, this show is hopeful about the future. It's not about how the human race ruined itself and the earth, or about how another species took over and enslaved them, or how corrupted the government became. It's about the human race surviving long enough to go out and explore the universe, not to conquer it but to understand it and to make peace with all the other planets and cultures out there. The crew of the Enterprise are always meeting a violent culture that hasn't developed yet and trying to help them grow (either by leaving them alone to do so, or trying to impart some wisdom to them) or coming across a race of people far more advanced than the human race and then leave with the hope that humans will get there too at some point.

I think that in a time when everyone is stressing out about war and racism and global warming and denied rights, its a good show to rewatch just feel hopeful that, yeah we'll get through all this somehow.

And that's my more optimistic side. I don't show it very often, but Star Trek always puts me in that kind of mood.


Also? This show is ridiculously slashy. I mean, it was like, the start of slash fanfiction. And it's no wonder when you watch Spock and Kirk together. Or Spock and McCoy, or McCoy and Kirk. Just. Slash abounds.

I swear, this Star Trek fic is the slowest thing I've written. Well, not so much as the fic itself as the pace of my writing. That's probably because I keep going back and rewriting whole paragraphs, which I should probably do once I've got most of it written down, but I just can't seem to get this first part right. I'm seriously struggling with it. Which is sad, because I know exactly how I wan the second part to go, it's just getting there that is the problem. I should probably find someone to beta this when I'm through.

Anybody on my flist who likes Star Trek interested in beta'ing a Reboot Kirk/Spock pre-slash?

Ah well, at least I'm writing again. Turns out what I really needed was a break from the Buffy fandom. As much as I love it, after practically breathing it for a year I needed a break. Not to say that I am done with writing Buffy fics, because seriously, I do love it, and I've never enjoyed myself so much as I do in this fandom (All you fellow Buffy fans rock!) but I probably won't have another Buffy fic for a while. Which is a good thing, because every new story I've started for it has sucked so bad that I wouldn't even consider posting it on here. But the ideas are still there, lingering, and I'll get back to them :)

In other news, most of the flying ants disappeared since my dad went around sprayed some bug poison or whatever, so I no longer fear going to sleep and waking up covered in them. Yay!

It was strange to think that a little more than a year ago they despised each other. Now they were like two stars or planets orbiting each other, separating for a moment before coming back to circle one another in a pattern that was as familiar as it was unchangeable. )

I want to read/write Star Trek fanfiction.

I want to rewatch some original series episodes.

I want to read more reviews and rant and rave about this movie some more.

I want to make graphics for it.

I want to watch the Dollhouse finale that I missed so I could go see this movie.

But it is past four in the morning and the adrenalin rush I got from this movie as worn off and I am exhausted.

Time to sleep.

Oh my god! Oh my god. Oh. My. God.


That movie was amazing. I was fangirling throughout the entire thing.

Cut for thoughts and random squeeing )


I don't care if every other movie I want to see this year turns out horrible, this movie made my year.

So, new semester, new classes and a new roommate. A new roommate who, at the moment, has taken over the room so she can have wild monkey sex with her boyfriend. I am banished to the study lounge during this time, but, Miranda assures me, it should only be for about twenty minutes.

Apparently they are very quick wild monkeys.
 

I seriously need to get out of here.


Unfortunately, this semester most of my friends have either left or graduated (the downfall of making friends with upperclassmen) and the ones that are still here are either home for the weekend or not answering their phones. So I'm stuck here for the evening it seems, bored out of my mind and banished to the study lounge, where I can hear all the annoying people in my dorm.

I really, really wish I had my own place. Really.


In other news, this semester I have three English classes that I think I'm going to love: British Literature, Fiction Writing and Reading and Writing about Literature. I like all the professors, and my fiction writing class is going to focus on flash fiction. Which is awesome. I still have to take a horrible spanish class, (taught by an overwight man who likes to burst into song--very off key--and has a tendancy to call his students "chickies") and retake my math class from freshman year, but at least I like my English classes.

Oh, and my math class is being taught by a shorter, non-jewish Leonard Nimoy. Like seriously, he looks just like him. And the first day of class he was wearing black pants with a blue sweater the exact shade as the uniform from The Original Series, and it took all my self control not to giggle when he said that the class "wasn't so much mathematics as it was logic."

I think it has been twenty minutes by now, but I'm going to wait a little longer (or a lot longer).

Just in case.

I figured since I wrote more last year, than any other (and actually started to post them on livejournal), it would be a good idea to have a post with links to all of them. Organization is a good thing! (Hah. Like I ever follow that belief. In truth, I'm bored.)

Edited: This has been changed to a post that has links to all my fiction, instead of just what I wrote in 2008. Will be edited as more stories are written.

I realized I hadn't posted any art in--well I really long time, so here I am, with a mixture of old a new. The previews lead to my DeviantArt webpage, which is much easier than trying to get all the pictures to fit in the tiny rectangle I chose to have as my journal.


Buffy: Spike, "Can We Rest Now?"








House M.D.: House, Wilson








Doctor Who: "Worlds Apart"






Star Trek: Spock



Apparently I am ridiculous and fanatical.

Just because I got a little emotional over the end of The Wrath of Khan. Again. 

Its sad! Spock dies! Sure, he's brought back to life in the next movie but still! It was a sad scene. 

Apparently sci-fi movies are not movies to get emotional over, so says my mother. 

Pfff.. I bet she cries over melodramtic, badly written lifetime films. Pfff.



I don't like daylight savings time. My clock says 6:49, but it doesn't feel that way. I'm not tired enough yet. 

Heh.. my sleeping schedule is really screwed up. 



I need to get the Search for Spock now. It was a bad idea to watch STII without having STIII handy.

Right now I am so bogged down with school projects and essays and exams and dress rehersals and performances... I just want to fall over. Thank god next week is spring break. Too bad I have two projects and an essay due i(n just one class!!) before it  comes and I'm going to keel over from the workload. 

I've had no time to write. I mean, other than all the papers I've been doing for my english class--two a week. *groans* Writing just isn't fun when you have to do it over the most dry, circular text book ever written. I did manage to write one small ficlet. A Star Trek one, based around the character McCoy. I have some ideas for more stories, but they'll have to wait. Maybe during spring break I can write them, as well as get started again on my Heroes fic and my Tin Man fic... *sigh* I can't wait for this semester to be over. 

Title: Do Not Weep.
Character: McCoy
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I do not own Star Trek, the characters used in this fic, or the poem, which belong's to Stephen Crane.
Summary: McCoy drinks alone.

Author's Note: This story is the first part in what will hopefully be a collection of drabbles and ficlets based on Stephen Crane's "War is Kind and Other Lines."
