Because there's less than one hour left of today and I still need to write my daily travel posting. What the hell.

Okay, here goes. Today, didn't do much. Basically boarded the L train to San Francisco Zoo, saw the zoo, stuck my feet into the (freezing) Pacific waters and went back to the hostel. Saw the koalas (koalas! KOALAS!) who were sleeping (as per usual for their species) but OH SO CUTE. Bundles of grey fur sleeping in trees somehow make me go all squee. Oh well.

I also saw their giant anteaters (OMGWTFANTEATERS! Sorry. That's what those weird animals always do to me. I just can't help it), lemurs (mehehe, funniest animals ever, probably), hippo (I'm in love with misshapen animals, just like my mum...), big cats (it is a little disconcerting when parents hold their little kids up to see an Amur tiger with the words "hey, kitty, kitty"...), penguins (they seemed to enjoy themselves very much), bears (the polar bear looked a little... unhappy, to be honest) and the children's zoo. I have to say I really liked the way the children's zoo was laid out and organized. And God, is was so empty (the entire zoo, that is). I'm really not used to empty zoos, seeing as both Berlin Zoos (yes, we have the decadence to afford ourselves two zoos, the Zoo and the Tierpark... in fact, we have lots of things twice. It's a relict of almost 30 years of being two cities instead of one) are rather in the city and both always draw crowds. That was nice.

Thanks to SF Zoo being a little farther out, I now also know where Evan's parents from the Protect and Survive universe live in SF (either Parkside or close to West Portal Station, if that tells you anything) and that only Laura Cadman can think of wanting to go swimming in the Pacific close to SF. Cold, oh God, so cold! But very beautiful, of course.

Anyway, I'll now go back to that "how it all began" fredlet to distract myself from the mess they made of Delicious and try to keep telling myself that everything will be alright again tomorrow. Gah.

I just might have found the OC to save my [livejournal.com profile] het_bigbang story. Can't say much about him but OMG how I love him for maybe, actually, probably saving my story with helping me connect the two strands I had no idea how to get back together and maybe even providing the non-Lorne/Cadman romance I wanted so badly and I will be eternally grateful to him. Yes, it's absolutely normal to be grateful to a fictional character that exists only in my imagination, why do you ask?

(and yes, I might keep getting on your nerves with freaking out over the big bang but it's my first, so please bear with me? Yes? Pwetty pwease?)

Also, would thinking about organising a big bang at [livejournal.com profile] major_explosion or, even better, [livejournal.com profile] stargate_ocs be a very bad idea right now?
gelbes_gilatier: (it's like this...)
Eh. Well. Um. It's a second "30 Days" post in a week. But to be honest, I feel like I have a lot more to say about the next question than I had about the last. While that was more of a blah post, this one could become a veritable rant, seeing as I have to say a lot about the character I like to write least... but let's start at the beginning (also, tons of spoilers, mostly for Minor Characters, so if you want to read that series in the correct order and unspoilered... better skip this one).

That is, the first ten questions:

1. Tell us about your favorite writing project/universe that you’ve worked with and why.
2. How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?
3. How do you come up with names, for characters (and for places if you’re writing about fictional places)?

4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters!

5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?

6. Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good ol’ pen and paper?

7. Do you listen to music while you write? What kind? Are there any songs you like to relate/apply to your characters?

8. What’s your favorite genre to write? To read?

9. How do you get ideas for your characters? Describe the process of creating them.

10. What are some really weird situations your characters have been in? Everything from serious canon scenes to meme questions counts!

And the newest one:

11. Who is your favorite character to write? Least favorite?

People are people... )
 
BTW... who's your favorite character to read, Stargate or non-Stargate? Of mine, that is. Tell me?
gelbes_gilatier: (dirty thoughts)
Since I vaguely annonced in one of my latest story posts that I would do another "30 Days" post in the next couple of weeks and I have a spare day today and [livejournal.com profile] mackenziesmomma poked tentatively asked me to write one, I'm hereby doing exactly that (even though I'd rather like to write a post on how stupid the statement "There are only very few "legal" ways to stalk a person" is, seeing as [livejournal.com profile] rareb and I once found out real name, real address, real trained for job and real current job of a girl from that forum with only her forum nick and forum profile in a little unter 30 minutes... but I guess there will be time for that later). Yes. But first of all, all answered questions:

1. Tell us about your favorite writing project/universe that you’ve worked with and why.
2. How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?
3. How do you come up with names, for characters (and for places if you’re writing about fictional places)?

4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters!

5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?

6. Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good ol’ pen and paper?

7. Do you listen to music while you write? What kind? Are there any songs you like to relate/apply to your characters?

8. What’s your favorite genre to write? To read?

9. How do you get ideas for your characters? Describe the process of creating them.


And that's the current one:

10. What are some really weird situations your characters have been in? Everything from serious canon scenes to meme questions counts!

'Das ist der vielleicht surrealste Moment meines gesamten bisherigen Lebens, und zugleich der albernste.' )
 
PS.: BTW, if you (not you, [livejournal.com profile] mackenziesmomma because you'll sic them on me anyway) have any suggestions for cracky or at least weird stories, don't hesitate to tell me. I might write them after all :)

PPS.: Also, I think I just developed the wish to see other peoples' characters in really weird situation, such as [livejournal.com profile] ancient_leah's Team Kemp, for example. Mh...
gelbes_gilatier: (Lorne/Cadman)
After being bullied into signing up by [livejournal.com profile] tinyshinysuka suggested to me to sign up for [livejournal.com profile] het_bigbang I did exactly that with the following:

A Lorne/Cadman Stargate Atlantis/Star Wars crossover I still owe [livejournal.com profile] myfloralbonnet and that I will need a lot of ass-kicking for.

Word requirement is 25k and fic and art due date will be September 25th and OMG THIS IS SO LITTLE TIME FOR SOME MANY WORDS OMG! So, um, guys. Please do give me a good ass kicking once in a while (and if anyone is willing to do art, that would be a double incentive, you know...) so I don't forget about the deadline and do my usual "OMG DEADLINE OMG!" thing three days before fics are due. Help would be very much appreciated (because then [livejournal.com profile] mackenziesmomma also wouldn't have to do all the work alone...) so... um... I'm counting on you!
gelbes_gilatier: (WTH?)
Okay, in case anyone on my direct flist knows anything about this ([livejournal.com profile] asugar[livejournal.com profile] mackenziesmomma?), I have a few research questions regarding a story in a yet unpublished 'verse:

Cut for MAJOR spoilers for the 'verse. )

I'd very, very much appreciate any help, even if it only answers part of those questions. Thank you very much :)

Okay, not sure if anyone's going to answer this one but it's sure worth a try... but here it is, a meme I snagged from [livejournal.com profile] bluflamingo's journal (with her permission ;)):

Either:
1. Give me a character and a story and I'll tell you three things about them that didn't make the story (or)
2. Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future (or)
3. Ask me a question about one of my fic . It can be absolutely anything in any fic and I will tell you the honest-to-god answer. Don’t hold back. Ask about major upcoming plot points if you want to. Whatever you ask, I have to answer truthfully.

  • 13:04 For some reason... computer science term paper reads like 38pp ad for MS Auto. Must ask sis' BF what Microsoft pays him for writing that :D #
  • 13:55 It's a miracle. I think I just understood what sis' BF's paper is actually about. After 31 of 38pp. Go me! Only 7 more pages to go! Yay! #
  • 13:58 And I'm... DONE! Now off to editing my own stuff, publishing a new MCTC chapter and probably do an almighty index of all my fic on LJ. #

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. (If you absolutely can't write, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to offer drawings or icons or something instead.) (If you'd prefer graphics to fic, just let me know.)
