I miss fic

Reading fic. The time when there was a new fic every day that I loved or when so many of us would be discussing the millions of ideas we had or the porn or just feeling so connected. I don't know if it's because I'm writing a lot more now so I'm neglecting reading or if I'm clinging onto the epic-ness that was days like this or when there were handfuls of posts a day or when there were fics throwing random people together that you didn't think would work, but you ended up loving or basically when more people were involved/when more was going on. I guess you can't always have everything, right? And this is not totally limited to cycling- it's just that's the best example because I miss it the most. I don't know. Maybe I should be less picky or maybe I should go back to the beginning and starte re-reading everything, but then I miss new things too so I DON'T KNOW! I have feels and need to share them, essentially

About the whole 'waiting for riders' situation. Now, firstly, I didn't see the crash yesterday (it had already happened by the time I got home and turned on the coverage) so I can't comment on whether Sky were wrong or not (though I will say that I don't think Valverde should have tried to confront them so openly, but that's a different matter). This isn't about that exactly. Personally, I think that if the attack has already happened then no one is obliged to wait. I also think that if the attack causes a problem, they need to stop and if they know for sure someone is in trouble then they should never attack. Also if something outside of the race, like what happened with the tacks at the Tour this year, affects the race then they should wait until it's all sorted before any potential attacking should happen. And that's what I think. Fair enough if you feel different

In happier things, Tejay won the stage at USAPro yesterday and VDV was second so I got so many fantasy points. Levi and Chris are still up in the overall (at 8 and 12 seconds back respectively) so that's a good sign. I know Tejay is good at TTs, but I don't think he can hold off all those guys at such a small time gap and they're already behind so it should provide some good racing over the next few days. Jens was in the breakaway again yesterday, though that's not really a surprise. The commentary is also so much better on the Tour Tracker than what they had for the Tour of Utah, too, so I'm glad about that

r.e. my [livejournal.com profile] rpf_big_bang fic. Now, I'm settled on doing this tennis fic because I was sure I wasn't going to be able to finish the cycling one I orginally planned on using. As for the crisis- it's not that I don't like the idea I'm using now (I still do like it), it's just that when I first thought of the whole thing, it was a moment a few years in the future of what I'm writing now. Then I thought I should go back and write about how they got there. Now, I'm wondering if I need to go back even further and write about how they got started. If I do this, though, that could easily become an epic section, possibly enough to be a story on its own. I just don't know if I have the time for that. I could just ignore the part of me that says I need to write that now and continue with the story I'm writing now and go back to the beginning in another story. There's still some of me that's doubting whether this story is... I'm not even sure how exactly to describe it. Like maybe it doesn't have enough of an impact without things that come before. Or it's full of stuff that needs explaining without knowing what happened earlier. Or I'm crazy and it'll work fine as it is. So, yeah, doubting myself.

On the other hand, I think I'm gonna go with the Chelsea shirt. Though that could be the fact that I watched one of their games yesterday (not quite live, seeeing as I was at work) clouding my judgement. Maybe I should Google for Stevie and see if that changes my mind at all

I am sick. It's just a cold and not so bad at the moment, but enough to make me miserable. It's either going to disappear completely tomorrow or get a whole bunch worse. I've got my fingers crossed for the former

I don't care what anyone says, Pepe Reina is always fucking awesome

Remember that story I was writing where cyclists were like the X-Men? Yeah, well, that's back on. I wrote about 1000 words for it today. I'm suddenly all inspired for that again because certain other things are impacting on certain other stories because certain other people are being uncooperative *glares pointedly in the directions of Texas, Spain and Luxembourg* You know who you are!

Starting to re-watch Supernatural. As much as I love Castiel, I think the earlier seasons are better. None of Jared's giant forehead and permanently confused look, for a start

Over at the BBC website, there's a video of Brad discussing how his chance of winning the Tour are quite good with Sky. I don't know whether to be happy about this because seeing a British guy win it would be truly amazing (especially if Cav won green, too) or to be sad because it would be with Sky and I am still not fond of some of their tactics/attitudes towards certain things. It is a tough one, indeed. Everytime I hear about Sky winning/ doing well in a race, I convince myself that they are good enough to win the Tour for Brad. I suppose I should decide, now (or definitely soon) whether I should support him or not.

Have also recently decided that if George doesn't win Paris-Roubaix, this year, I will probably cry.

The other day, I was having a bot of a freak out. Not about my uni essays as I probably should have been. Instead, I was freaking out that far too soon Lance and Jens are both going to retire and this will freak me out.

Also, am now determine to get the line: "Well, if I go on my own I know I'm going to end up giving him really comforting 'I'm sorry your boyfriend just had a baby' sex" into Fränk/George

Have also thought of ideas for another Brad/Dave story, which I am a little bit excited about

May have volunteered to write a review of New Moon for the uni magazine. Legitmate excuse to get drunk? I believe so

Have started re-watching Smallville. I still love it. Lionel's hair is still amazing. Lana and Chloe are still as annoying as ever. And I am still bitching about Tom Welling not having put on The Suit, yet.

I spent most of my lunch break making really crappy icons, today. I should have done something productive or helpful, like napping, but no.

In other news, though, I have 86 of my first set of drabbles done and ideas for another 7 so hopefully it shouldn't be too long before I've finished those. I'm quite proud of myself and also a little excited to start a new list. I might have to write that Fabian/George one down, first, though

Also, I'm having cheeseburgers, for tea, if you care, and we're going to watch Red Dragon. And I am so very over-tired

Oh, and it would be really helpful if there were pictures of Bernie and Tony together, but I haven't found any

62 drabbles done. Getting through these is proving easier than I first thought. That's not to say easy, just not as hard as I thought it would be, given my penchant for the lengthier fic. I am finiding to slightly difficult to cut down some of the ones, that do go over 100 words, though

It's back to uni, tomorrow, and back to lectures at 9am on Monday morning. Not looking forward to it.

My sister got a hamster. It's grey and miniature and it's called Spud. I tried to get her to call it Wilson, but, alas, it did not work

That I have a beginning and an ending to my Secret Santa fic or that I have done some work for my presentation? Stupid question much. I mean, I chose to do my presentation on the Master in Doctor Who because it'd give me chance to re-watch some of my favourite epsiodes. Then, I remembered how irrationally angry Martha and the entire 'Last of the Time Lords' episode makes me. All in all, not so easy, actually. The fic, however, is progressing nicely. I have so may ideas in my head and I want to write all of them. If only I had the time. I really ought to be doing my Secret Santa first, but pregnant-Cav is becoming more insistent and I don't want to make him cry 'cause I fear he'll never stop. *makes worried face*

Okay, so I bought Watchmen yesterday and am preparing to watch it very soon, but it's so awesome that things have got to be just perfect during the watching of it. I'm going to put my laptop out of reach and wear my Comedian t-shirt (yes, I bought one). That doesn't seem like enough though. Anyone have any suggestions?
