[ profile] amyxaphania made a post with some pieces she had written as a kid, including an extremely creative children's book she had made for her sister.

So I though I'd share some of my really old stuff. Most of the stuff I wrote as a really young kid is gone now, thrown away along with the notebooks they were written in. However I did managed to find an old story I typed up. Reading through it I'd say I was either eleven or twelve, based off of the obsession with Egypt and the slight resemblance to Aladdin and the King of Theives. Also, the name Akasha, which I use in it, was taken straight from Anne Rice's novels, and I read them sometime around sixth grade.

Anyway, without further ado:

Caught! A story by a very young Aisalynn. )

42,788 words, and I'm done. Sooo much longer than I thought it was going to be, so much longer than I've ever written before.

Technically, I finished eight hours ago, but I was running late to pick up my older sister so we could meet some friends and family at a dueling piano bar (which was AWESOME, by the way) and I was literally stripping off my clothes as I sent the story in, just so I could get into the shower that much faster.

I had to leave out few scenes that I wanted, and the sex scene was giving me so much trouble that I finally just had to write your basic fade to black moment, and the ending is soo rushed, but it's done and sent in, and at double the required word count, and I can just go back and edit all that later. That Big Bang V-card? Poof. Gone. *Is so proud of herself*

Now? It's time to dance.

Only not in real life, 'cause I've been awake for over twenty-four hours and I just got back from hanging out in a rowdy bar. I'm dead on my feet.

Night all.

Almost 38,000 words in and I'm almost to the (admittedly mild) sex scene. Which means it's close to the end.

Home stretch, people!

I am getting this thing done!

God, when I finish this thing, it's going to be almost 40,000 words. The most I've written on one piece before this was just over 10,000. It's kind of mind boggling. Especially since 22,000 of it so far has been written in like, four days.

NaNoWriMo this year?

Uh yeah, I think so.

At roughly 32,000 words and still writing. But I'm getting sick of my room. It's a nice day today, and there is absolutely no one at home to bother me (when there is I usually have to hide out in my room to get things done) so I'm gonna go outside and write on the deck beside the pool. Thank god there's a plug out there for my computer.

*looks forward to being out in the sun*
28,000 words into my Big Bang, and I've just now written the first kiss. This fic is soo much longer than I thought it was going to be. And I have so much more to go as well.

I really really hope I can get this done in time.

Goal for tonight: 25,000.

It will happen. There is no other option.

20,625 words, everybody! I'm past the minimum mark!

I'm still not done with the story, and have quite a ways to go, but it's no longer looking impossible.

Word goal for tonight? 20,000. It is going to happen.

Sorry for spamming you all with this Big Bang crap, but posting about it keeps me motivated. Like, now that the internet is witness to my plans, I have to meet them or something.

(And I WILL meet them! *determined face*)

16,519 words. Which means I've written just over four thousand words in the last five or so hours. I'm done for right now. Time for me to let my brain relax.
Sooooo tired. But I can't sleep. So I'm trying to write, because I'm waaay behind on my Big Bang and only have like, five days to finish, but I'm having trouble concentrating. I'm the kind of tired where I can't fall asleep and all I want to do is turn on a movie or something and sort of doze through it, but I can't do that.

I'm considering coffee at this point, even though I hate it. But I know making it in the middle of the night will just wake everyone else in the house up.

It amuses me that while writing scenes with Chris Kane in my J2 RPS stories, I keep accidentally typing "Christ" instead of "Chris." Apparently, Jensen's best friend is a chain smoking, cowboy boot wearing Jesus, who has a surprisingly dirty mouth.

So, remember that epic supernatural bunny with Lawyer!Sam and AllegedMurderer!Dean? I'm totally writing it. Yup. Sign ups for the [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang are on the 11th, and I'm signing up and writing that thing. Woohoo! So I need to start researching.

I also need to finish the Horoscope sequel, and I'd like to finish my Christmas story as well, even though it's way past Christmas now. But oh well, it ended up being a whole lot longer than I thought it was going to be. In fact, I could probably use it as my Big Bang story, since it's probably going to fit the word limit, but I'm already motivated for that one, the Big Bang is supposed to force me to write the lawyer one.

So uh, yeah. Lots of writing to do.
Finally got around to watching it, which, seeing the end, I now believe was really stupid. I should have waited until Part 2 aired, that way I could watch them back to back. *sigh*

Reactons )

And this has nothing to do with Doctor Who, but I just thought I'd share my word count for the year:


Not a whole lot considering several people on my flist wrote 50,000 in a month, but still good for me. My goal this year was at least 75,000 (my goal last year was 50,000. I'm slowly working up.) and I surpassed that, so I'm happy. :) Next year's goal? 100,000. And I'm planning on signing up for the Supernatural Big Bang (that lawyer!Sam bunny won't go away!) so that will be at least 20,000 right there.

Oh, and my bandwidth on photobucket was apparently used up, so all my graphics (with the exception of my banner) are turning into those ugly photobucket images. This is sad. *pouts*

So, I should be focusing on what I'm trying to write right now. (The Christmas J2 Au, which, while going slow, I'm absolutely loving.) But instead my mind keeps wandering to the possible sequel I'm tempted to write for that ridiculous Big Foot!Jared fic. I really want Chris and Steve to meet Jared. I keep thinking of this scene where Chris is all, "So... your new best friend is a yeti." and Jared being all offended and "I am not a yeti." And then I want Wookie references and the boys being all horrified that Jared has never seen Star Wars.

But. Christmas fic. Needs to be done. And soon.

And those comments asking me for a sequel on the other so do not help.

No, brain. I will not write a last minute Christmas J2 fic based on an ABC family special trailer I just happened to see while watching crappy TV with my cousin. No, stop planning it out.

Uh uh, Jared is not a college drop out dissatisfied with his crappy fish tank factory job and lack of love life, desperate to prove to his family that he is worth something.

Nope, Jensen isn't an over enthusiastic do-gooder who is so busy with his many charities and community services that he doesn't actually have a life of his own.

And no, Jared will not kidnap Jensen and force him to be his date for the holidays, thereby forcing them to spend loads of time together so that they can fall absolutely, positively, and very cheesily in love.

And Chad will not fail as a best friend/co-kidnapper and get drunk and gamble away the three thousand dollars of charity money they were holding hostage in order to ensure Jensen's cooperation.

Misha Collins might very well wander out of the country and gather all his minions in a secret location, spending his Christmas touching up the final plans for when he takes over the world, but I will not write it.

No, I will not, too much to write already.

*stares at open word document.*

Damn it.

So, I've seen the idea several times in the Supernatural fandom that Sam wanted to be lawyer in case he ever had to defend his dad or brother in court. I love that idea of that happening.

I want to write an AU fic where Sam refuses to go with Dean when he shows up in the Pilot and years later he's changed his name (to get more distance from the life he left behind or something) and is an up and coming defense lawyer. His firm assigns him a case--a murder case where a man shot his father--and surprise! That man is Dean, who, thanks to his name change and his careful manipulation of his records, no one knows is actually his brother.

Sam is horrified at the idea that Dean had killed John, and tries to get the real story from him but Dean refuses to talk about it, bitter and angry about Sam abandoning them and so guilt ridden over John's death that he doesn't care what happens to him. When Dean was arrested he was found wounded and bleeding beside his father's body, so the only way Sam knows how to get Dean off is by pleading self defense. So there he is, stuck painting his own father as an abusive psychopath, while Dean fights him on every move he makes, despite the fact that it's the only thing that will save him, and during this old issues are brought out, and old wounds are ripped back open, and sometimes it's like no time has passed between them at all as they keep fighting over the same old shit they had years before, and sometimes it's like his brother is a complete stranger to him, closed off and unreachable in a way he never was before.

Meanwhile, as more of Dean's past gets dragged out, his case becomes more and more interesting to the media. Soon the press is portraying Dean the worst of criminals, and as the public opinion towards him gets worse and worse Sam starts getting pressured from several different angles into deliberately losing the case. So now not only does Dean's life hang in the balance, but also Sam's career, and his future in the nice little life he's set up for himself since Stanford.

Gah. This story would be long and take huge amounts of research and wow, would take forever to write. But, I really need to finish what I'm writing now. *pouts* Stupid bunnies, keep distracting me.

Edit: If Sam stayed in California and that's where John's death took place, and let's just say that there were a few other bodies found (like say, the bodies of a few demons, perhaps?) tied to a chair and surrounded by strange symbols on either the floor or the ceiling, then that would make Dean look like some crazy satan worshiping nut job who not only planned out the whole thing, but tortured people before he killed them. Which could totally mean the possibility of the death penalty, just to add a little bit more tension.

Ugh, I want to write this fic.

I really feel like writing some J2 fairytale AU's. (God, RPS has taken over my life. What is wrong with me?) You know, just some silly, fun stories. I'm thinking an Aladdin-ish story, only with Jensen as the genie, but modern day and not traditional at all, and maybe with something ridiculous as the lamp. Also, Cinderella. But that has less to do with J2 and more with my sudden and rather random desire to write Chris Kane as an extremely grumpy fairy godmother. I think it'd be hilarious.

But, seriously, I need to focus on school and the stories I have sitting on my hard drive. Especially my This Lane Closed timestamp, which is turning out much longer than I expected (less of a timestamp, more of a sequel) and which is giving me a little bit of trouble. So, I guess I'm going to have to put these bunnies on the shelf for later.

Also, some clarification on my post about the Supernatural fic: that really wasn't like, aimed at my flist for not commenting or anything like that. For one thing, I know most of my flist reads either Buffy or Doctor Who, and for another, I don't like, expect everyone to comment or something. I know I certainly don't comment on every post I see, especially not here lately. The post was more about my worries that I'm horrible at writing Sam and Dean characterizations or something. Though I've been reading supernatural fanfic for a few months now, I haven't written a lot, and just like breaking into any new fandom for me, it comes with a certain amount of insecurities about what I write. So that's all that was.

So, I've finally given in and gotten a Twitter account. Mainly just cause I like to read Misha Collins's stuff. He's hilarious. I've heard this sentiment expressed before from people, and I wonder if he knows just how many people he is dragging over to the Twitter side with his awesome and insane posts.

I don't know how often I'll actually be using Twitter, but I have it.

So, the other day I posted a small Supernatural Thanksgiving ficlet. I have to say, I was little dissappointed with the reaction, or lack there of. Now, I don't want to be one of those people who bitch and whine about their work being unappreciated or some shit, because I know that I'm writing for fanfiction for me and not for anyone else, and that the minute that changes the less fun it's going to be, but still. This is the third or fourth supernatural fic I've written that has gotten little to no feedback. Not even negative or constructive feedback. I'm starting to wonder if I just really suck at writing Sam and Dean, and nobody wants to tell me. Which will be sad, because I love this show so much. *sigh*

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to beg for comments (I always hate that), but if I can't talk about writing woes and worries on my own journal where can I? In real life most of the people I know just roll their eyes and block me out when I start going on about my writing. I apparently talk about it far too much. *shrugs*

At the moment, I'm just happy I've had time to write during this break. I haven't written anything besides essays for weeks now. It feels good to get away from all that and just write what I want.
