Hubminster Manor, part 4

alba17 has written and posted another chapter in our ongoing story. (The next chapter's mine, folks, so prepare yourselves for a bit of a wait - alba17 is much faster than I am.)

Fic: Hubminster Manor

In my end-of-the-year post, I indicated that I was trying something that I had never done before (in the writing realm, that is). And here it is: alba17 and I are co-writing a fic!

It’s exciting and very, very different in lots of ways. My writing experience has almost always been that of locking myself away from the world and creating in solitude, be it physical or mental or both. Collaborating makes me work quite differently, forces me to consider my process and someone else’s; this is a good thing.

alba17 was my first friend in the TW/DW fandom – in fact, she’s my first online-to-offline friend ever. We came into the fandom around the same time, started reccing fic to each other, and realized we have very similar tastes and interests. She and I have been beta-reading each other’s fic as long as we’ve been writing it, I guess. (kadairk is my other beta.) Co-writing felt like a natural progression.

The story idea was all alba17’s, as is the first chapter; I asked to join her on this project. I want to thank her for taking me on, and for posting it all. Chapter 2 is more my work, with a lot of her suggestions and edits. We'll probably go on this way, alternating chapters.

Just in case I have one or two friends who are not also friends of alba17, I’ll be linking to chapters as they’re posted over on her journal.

Enjoy!

London!

This is a post-and-run.

We've been slouching around London, shopping and shit. We've *seen* interesting buildings/etc., but have actually gone in none.

Tonight's the night - John Barrowman in La Cage aux Folles! And tomorrow night is also the night! With added cabaret table bonus! And Wednesday I am going to see JB tape Paul O'Grady's show! (Shh...junior doesn't know.) It is, as someone said, JB-o-rama!! (Who the hell said that?)

The new book, I Am What I Am, comes out today, and I'm about to head over to Foyles to buy a copy or two, and a sharpie, then JB Fan Jr. and I are going to hang around the theatre for several hours. Wish us luck.

I'll report back briefly tomorrow, but the big report (with pictures, I hope) will have to wait for when I get home (Saturday).

I have to post or my journal will get deleted...

This is a news post, full of TMI and John Barrowman. Surprise.

Withdrawal

ARGH!

I'm having severe problems being away from LJ and the Internet in general. In case anyone was wondering, I've been traveling, and now am trapped in the fucking countryCIDE where the Internet connection will not let me "see" COE.

ARGH!

I can't look at ANYTHING for fear of spoilers.

This is really quite depressing, and I wonder if I'm getting a bit *too* upset over what is, in the end, a television show. Then I wake up, and get depressed all over again.

So, I'm going on Internet hiatus. And it hurts. It really, really hurts.

Charing Cross Road

In a very weird coincidence, I'm back in the same Internet cafe that I used when I came to London at the end of May to see John Barrowman at the RAH.

I'm trying to find Forbidden Planet, but I've been walking in circles. Now I have a latte and a muffin, and I'll figure this out.

This is a 9-hour layover, btw. It was supposed to be 8.5 hours, but my plane from the UAE was EARLY, if you can believe that.

Anyway, back on the plane to the US at 3 pm. It's going to be a long day. Still, I'm glad I decided to come into town today, and it's really kind of cool to have a regular haunt in London.

Hope everybody has a great weekend!

My Freaking List!

So, my computer decided to update itself last night and shut down. I opened Word as usual, opened saved files, re-saved them.

Now my fanfic list - the list containing every fic I've read for the last year - with URLs, pairings, rating, comments, and more - is DEAD. Corrupted. Unopenable. Unretrievable.

I'm kind of hoping that Word will magically fix it while I'm at work today.

The only remotely bright spot in all this is that I backed all my important stuff (i.e., Torchwood, Doctor Who, and John Barrowman) up before I went to London. Assuming the backup works, I should have only lost a couple of weeks' worth of data. But now I have to go to work, so no time to check on that. And there's a big end-of-semester party tonight, so I won't be able to do it tonight.

Not to mention that my SO is getting fed up with the time I'm spending online/on the computer again....

Fuckity fuck fuck.

London

In 5 hours, I'm heading for the airport to get the 2:15 into Heathrow, where I will wait for my sister and drink coffee for a few hours. Then we're off on our London-and-John-Barrowman-in-4-days adventure!

Meanwhile, I bought an HP mini notebook yesterday, and can't get it to connect on wifi. WTF? I'm not even taking it if I can't connect. Grrr... Oh well, I can tote my regular laptop around, I guess.

-dva, counting down to RAH
