This was less distressing when I didn't know who the people the author was killing off were. ZACK! ANDY! Not really so much Quinn, but he seems decent enough, so !

... It's still an awesome read, though.

ETA: Ryland!! No!! Ryland!! (And in my head, Ray and Gabe get out alive, ok?!)

So I wrote and posted for the first time in over a year (it was on [ profile] anon_lovefest , but it still counts), and it wasn't horrific! It was, however, angst. ??? And it wasn't even Panic! angst. I don't know, my brain, sometimes. *sigh*

So, last but by no means least, [personal profile] lady_deathangel 's "in your eyes (beauty be found)". Brendon/Ryan, highschool crossdressing. This was the second one I beta'd, and before I read it, I wasn't too gone on it, simply because I'm really not a Brendon/Ryan by themselves fan. But I adored reading this, even though I'm pretty sure I drove the author crazy with how long it took me to get back to her, and my rambling off into other topics when I did email back. I love how vulnerable but still super-strong Brendon is in this, and how Ryan is so freaking messed up and doesn't even know it. It's always weird to read Panic high school AUs, because the scenarios could easily be an alternate history. This one defined itself as an actual AU really early on, which was brilliant for me, considering I tend to get confused.
(She also wrote me the loveliest beta thank you ever. Seriously.)

I'm actually really ridiculously relieved that they're all up now. I can't imagine how the authors themselves feel. :D

I am totally in the mood for office AUs at the moment and I have no idea why, so reading this was a huge pleasure. [ profile] elleheartsyou 's Dreaming of Manhattan, my third Big Bang beta. Jon/Spencer and Brendon/Ryan, whereby Spencer works in Decaydance Records, Pete's - as in RL - music producing company. Complete AU, not a twist or what if, but still very very awesome. I love the little glimpse of normality which isn't very normal, and aside from GSF and Brendon/Spencer, I have a soft spot for Jon and Spencer, so I definitely loved how adorable this was.

In other news, LO is home, and I'm stuck at work! :( Not cool.

Ooh, Spencer Reid in the moodtheme! Wtf is it with me and guys with the name Spencer? Excepting your manno from what's-it-called, The Hills, of course.

Eee! Second beta'd story is UP! This one is [ profile] withertime 's "one step forward (two steps back)". I found this one so intiguing when I was reading it. I don't think I'd ever seen Jon/Brent before, and a lot of the time I get sick of people (the band themselves, even) bashing Brent Wilson's character. Obviously, I wasn't there when all this went down, but the fact still remains that they were all just kids, and still only finding out what they wanted from life. Plus, I adore tech!Jon, so this was pretty much an awesome story for me to read. I'm already waiting on a sequel.

Yeah, this movie does absolutely nothing to stop 40 years of postulating on the first slash couple. With Kirk and either Spock.

So, I spent a productive morning seeing if I could find videos on YouTube of Cobra in Manchester! I got some good ones, too, including one that really doesn't dissuade how close I think cult!verse comes to reality sometimes. *sigh*

Bandom Big Bang starts TODAY!! I've just had a look over the comm, and there's at least 4 lovely new stories for me to get my teeth into. Plus, now that they're all done, people are hopefully going to start posting new things again!! Freaking awesome!

(Slightly more selfishly, I'm kind of hoping I might be credited on the stories I did beta work for. That's not awful, right?)

On an entirely seperate note, I must have a look at the final tally on European and County elections. As far as I've seen so far, Fine Gael has been featuring very highly, as have the Independants and Others. Sinn Féin also seems to have nabbed quite a few seats, while the Greens seem to have been almost decimated. Éamonn Gilmore, I think, is the latest to call on Biffo for a General Election, after these results. Here's hoping my vote counted!

Oooh, and also. Sims 3 freaking ROCKS. An entirely different game to Sims 2, and the graphics don't seem to have advanced that much - but I'm loving the open neighbourhood layout, and various functions that I keep discovering and going "Huh" to.

One down, two to go!!! A little behind schedule, but not too much! (Also, attaching fic to email is probably a vital step in sending back a beta job. :S)

In other news; Damn you, Star Trek. DAMN YOU. I do not need a new fandom right at this moment, you couldn't have waited a week or two to let the fascination set in??
