Following the Masses...

Like a whole lot of folks on my LJ flist, I've decided to go ahead and start an account at Dreamwidth. Please don't panic--I'm not leaving LJ, but plan to crosspost entries. That means all my fic/ramblings/news/etc. will still be on LJ; they'll just be on Dreamwidth as well. Should anyone want to add me over there, my username is slightly different than on LiveJournal. (It's the name I've used nearly everywhere else for many years, but by the time I got to LJ it had already been taken by someone who hasn't posted at all in several *years*--grrr!)

So...if you're interested, I'm at katstales.dreamwidth.org on Dreamwidth. :)

*crosses fingers for successful crossposting*

I Hate Mondays...

So.

Tis Monday again.

Was up late editing and slept in till almost ten am. Sounds good so far right? *nods* Kat's no good, terrible, very bad day. )

So tis executive decision time--we are SO eating out tonight. Will hopefully be on chat later, but prolly not till late as groceries still need fetching and new bathmat will need to be acquired asap.

New SGA Fic: It's The Little Things - Part 6 of 6

Title: It's The Little Things
Rating: PG (mostly for violence and possibly a wee bit of 'colorful' language on Ronon's part *grins*)
Pairing/Characters: Gen fic with team and no pairings
Disclaimer: Don't own 'em & not making any money off this--if I did or I were, we'd SO be having a Season 6!!!
Timeline: Set early season 5, shortly after John's recovery from events in "The Seed."
Summary: The team is returned to Atlantis after being regressed to childhood while investigating an offworld Ancient facility. With no memories of their adult selves, the four must work together to not only find a way to cope with their current situation, but to eventually reverse the effects and save themselves from impending death. Chaos, mayhem, and madness occur along the way, of course!


The beginning of the story is here in Part 01.

This would be the part with Ronon's wee bit of 'colorful' language. I tried to get him to let me change it, but he was stubborn and insisted that I leave it as is. So if you're offended by what he says, the blame lies solely with him. *wink-wink*

This way to Part 6 )

"This Is Not Supposed To Happen"

If you've seen the national news in the US today, then you've likely already heard about this.

I live no more than ten minutes away from this church. I have friends and family who are members and I've met the pastor who was killed. If you're so inclined, please pray for everyone affected by this horrible, horrible tragedy. :(

New SGA Fic: It's The Little Things

This is a (VERY!) late entry for the 2nd Annual Ficathon over at [livejournal.com profile] sheps_atlantis. As it went rather...epic on me, I'll be posting one part per day over the next six days.

Prompts: Written for the ever-so-patient and awesome [livejournal.com profile] linziday, who wanted John & Rodney (and/or team) as kids on Atlantis. Detailed prompt will be included at the end of the last chapter.
Timeline: Set early season 5, shortly after John's recovery from events in "The Seed."
Notes: Notes will also be included at the end of the final chapter, as they turned out a wee bit lengthy. Oops! :)

Meme Time!

The WIPs meme, to be exact. :D It's been all over my flist today and looks like fun. Plus, I haven't done one in ages, so I'm due for a meme, yes? *nods*

Post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations. No more than one sentence.

The sentences be here, yes, they do! )

Writing? What's That?

The muse seems to be more in the mood to cooperate this month--so far. I'm praying it continues beyond just this first week, but I suppose I'll take whatever I can get, lol. Anyway, as I've had several days in a row now of 1k+ progress, I thought I'd go ahead and post a progress report. :)

Title: It's The Little Things
Fandom: SGA
Words: 6112 on 2/4 thru 2/7; 43,466 total words so far

For those of you wondering how I'm doing in the [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout venture? Um, well...better but not spectacular. I'm slowly but surely catching up though, so we'll see. Thankfully I have a lot of time to make up the January deficit--provided the muse will stick around! Here's the little widget-thingie with the gory details:

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
16,890 / 350,000
(4.8%)


So that's what I've been up to this weekend. :) For those of you also struggling with the words, I wish you a very fun uber-productive and word-filled day! For those who aren't engaging in the War of The Words, hope you also have a day filled with much fun and joy! :)

So Jenna...

You haven't been having issues with sleep-computer-hacking recently, have you?? *vbg*

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090204/ap_on_re_us/highway_signs_zombies

For those who don't know or haven't already heard about this, hackers changed the message on an electronic road sign on a highway near Collinsville where I live. I understand the officials concerns and they are right to address them, but ya gotta admit it *was* kinda funny. (And no, *I* didn't do it! Nor do I have any clue as to who did.)

A Little Help From My Friends?

A friend of mine has made a video trailer for his upcoming graphic novel for children. He put it up on youtube and lately there have been a lot of nasty comments and low ratings. If anyone has a free moment to watch and give it a more appropriate rating (and perhaps even leave him a *sane* comment!) I know he'd much appreciate it. Thanks! :)

Oh, and if you any *constructive* criticism about the video for him, he'd seriously LOVE that, lol. :)
