Flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss

It seems, once again, that you're stuck between a rock and a crazy place

It's been a while since I've posted....
Arrow cast
But I have good reason. I haven't really written anything. Last year the only fic I wrote was for het_bigbang and I haven't even gotten around to posting it here yet. The reason for that... well there are a few. If you don't want to hear me waft on I understand but I feel the need to get everything off my chest at the moment.

So about a year ago my Uncle Brian was diagnosed with a brain tumour. His first doctor said that the position and size of the tumour meant that there was nothing they could do. They said that it was a miracle that he was still walking let alone alive. They said he had less than a month left. Now my uncle is the type of man to take that lying down. He got a second and third opinion, he got every opinion he could until he met a man named Charlie Teo. Charlie was the only man who was willing to operate and was able to remove 90% of the tumour from his brain. Of course this filled my uncle with lots of hope, he wanted to bet this so badly, but with chemo, radiotherapy and steroids he has slowly been getting worse.

This brings me to this weekend. This weekend my uncle decided he couldn't fight anymore. He really wanted to. He doesn't want to leave his son fatherless as my grandfather died when he was ten. However the medicine his on and the toll it has taken on his body means that he knows it's time to stop.  On Sunday he signed a do not resuscitate order and went home so that he could be there when he went. My parents rushed to be with him but as soon as they arrived my uncle was rushed back to hospital in a huge amount of pain. It's to the point now where he is on an astronomical amount of painkillers and spending his days sleeping.

Basically I'm just waiting for a phone call to say that he's gone and that I need to travel for the funeral. I feel like I need to cry all the time but that if I start crying I'm never going to stop and how is that going to help anyone. I'm just waiting and that's the worst bit.  I feel like I'm trapped in this limbo where I need to prepare myself for the worst but hope he can still hang on but I know he can't. I know this is it and I'm just sitting in my home, waiting for the time to come cause I'm too scared that if I go and see him that all I'll be able to remember of him is the pain he is in now. It just breaks my heart and I don't know what to do or say anymore.

Merry Christmas
All I want for xmas is direction

2013 Information/FAQs/Author Signups/Artist Sign Ups/Beta Sign Ups/Cheerleader Sign Ups/Prompt Post

It seems only natural to be pimping at the moment since I'm the mod for this year (at least). So please come and join. Sign Ups started on Monday and I've got 1 artist, 1 beta and 1 cheerleader. No authors yet. I've yet to sign up but I don't count myself.

Fanfic to do list... 19/5 to 2/6
The daily struggle of a fic writer
I'm posting this earlier than I planned because I'm trying to stop scratching. I'm pretty sure I'm having an allergic reaction to something but I'm not sure what. Anyway the other new thing is that I realized that working 5 out of 10 days in the last two weeks left little time for fanfic work so I decided to give myself a break and make my to do list last two weeks. So without further ado....

Veronica Mars/Glee crossover fic for het_bigbang

So I found a beta and a cheerleader for my fic. I then wrote 400 words which is pretty good in my mind considering I planned to write 500. I also found some photo of outfits that Veronica could, in my opinion, wear to events and her wedding dress. Pictures are below. So this fortnight I plan to:

1. Write 1000 words
2. Get in touch with cheerleader

Smallville fic for het_bigbang

So I found a beta for this fic and have a back-up if necessary (thanks to the absolutely lovely ica013). While I didn't have a chance to hire season 7 and start my re-watch and outline I was able to find what would beBig spoiler for ficCollapse ). So this fortnight I plan to:

1. Hire season 7 to re-watch
2. Start outline
3. Write a third of the first chapter.

beyond_dapper big bang:

There isn't much to say about this. I've decided to drop it because while I love Blaine and Kurt I"m not sure I'm up to writing 25,000+ words in 3 months. Plus the rough draft needs to be beta'd and that annoys me.

klaine_bigbang big bang fic:

So I discovered that I need a beta but other than that I haven't really done anything. This fortnight I plan to:

1. Find a beta
2. Write 500 words

love_bingo card:

I neglected this task too. So this fortnight I plan to:

1. Write and finish one fic for any prompt.

Now for some of the photos. They are behind a cut in case you don't want to be spoiled for anything. It's ok if you don't want to be :D

Fanfic to do list.. 5/5 to 12/5
Garfield Boy fanfic is hard
So this is a first for me. I've never bothered to type up and stick to a to do list online before because I didn't want to be held accountable and then fall short. I knew it would leave me feeling disappointed. Now though with everything I've signed up for I want to feel accountable. So every Sunday night I plan to make a post with my to do list for the week. Feel free to ask questions, get on my back, encourage me to stick to my plans and I'd be forever in your debt :D

With out any further ado this is my to do list for the week, broken down into what challenge they are for :D

Het Big Bang (And other things that need to be ranted about :D)
I want a baby penguin

Yes! I realize I shouldn't have signed up for something else when I have enough on fics to write as it is but I couldn't resist! I signed up to write a Veronica Mars/Glee crossover fic, which I've hinted at before because I really need it out of my head. On top of that though (and this is where you can call me insane) I'm thinking of signing up to write 2 fics because I also have a couple of Chloe/Oliver fics roaming around my head, too long to be put to use on any of my other challenges. One will be my smallvillebbang fic but I'm thinking that the one of the others will be my second het_bigbang fic..

I'm crazy right?

Not only have I signed up to write 25,000 words for my Veronica Mars/Glee crossover but I'm thinking about signing up to write 25,000 for a Smallville fic and then there are all the other challenges I've signed up for. 25,000 for my beyond_dapper big bang fic and 15,000 for my klaine_bigbang fic. And that's if I stick to the minimum. On top of that I've got my love_bingo card and svpromptstables fics. I think I may have gone a little crazy... Well crazier than I already am...

Anyway the point of this is, I guess to see if there would be any interest from any Smallville people if I were to write a smallville fic as my second het_bigbang fic. It would either be a Smallville/X-men/Tower Prep crossover where Chloe is running Xavier's Academy after Charles died at the end of the 3rd movie and sends Ian Archer recruit Mia to Xavier's which cause Oliver and Hal to follow after. The big thing I'm worried about with this fic is that it would be Oliver from the comics after the Cry for Justice events and since I only know what I've read online it might not be very good. The second fic would be a sequel to Start Over that would pick up at Siren and run to either Bride or Legion with a few twist a long the way (and one big one :D).

Anyway the real purpose of this post (when I started) wasn't to scare myself with the amount of work I've signed up for but to inform that het_bigbang is happening again. It's a great big bang, it also has a little bang attached to it so if you've been thinking about signing up for a big bang this would be one that I'd highly recommend.

On a side night, I'm completely annoyed that NBN decided to play Arrow at the same time as Criminal Minds and Mr and Mrs Murder. You tease us for months NBN and then you decided to put it on Wednesday night. I'm totally annoyed and I'm just going to wait for the DVD now so you don't get my rating :(

Ok I'm done! And if you've made it here congrats :D

Fic: You Can't Win, Veronica Mars/Glee crossover verse, PG
Glee/VM crossover pop star Veronica
Fic: You Can’t Win
Rating: PG
Fandoms: Veronica Mars and Glee
Characters/Pairings: Veronica, Blaine, Kurt, Logan, OFC, Burt, Carole, Finn, The Warblers, New Directions. Veronica/Logan, Burt/Carole, mentions of Blaine/Rachel, pre Kurt/Blaine
Prompt: Mourning love_bingo card.
Spoilers: 2.14 Blame it on the Alcohol, None from Veronica Mars
Word Count: 3681
Summary: On the anniversary of their mother’s death Kurt and Veronica celebrate how they always had. Shopping, sugar filled food, the Sound of Music, and a charity karaoke event.
Disclaimer: I do not own Veronica Mars or Glee. I do not claim that I own either of these shows. They are the property of their creators. I’ve only used what I know about both shows for entertainment, to make this verse.

AUTHOR’S NOTE PLEASE READ!! IT’S IMPORTANT!! (Hence this being in capitals and bolded :D)

1. This is the second fic in my Veronica Mars/Glee crossover verse, the first being I’ll Be There For You. You should probably read that one first if you haven’t already as it gives the background to the story. It’s here.
2. If you choose not to read I’ll Be There For You or it’s just been a while since you’ve read it this is what you need to know. Veronica is Kurt’s older sister; she was adopted by Burt and Elizabeth Hummel when she was a kid because they thought they couldn’t have kids. Kurt is essentially the miracle child. Veronica’s back story is very different to the one she has in Veronica Mars. It’s completely AU for her and Logan. Blaine’s a junior.
3. I’ve had this finished for a while I just haven’t been happy with it. But since it’s my birthday today I decided that I would post it and hope for the best :D
4. The songs sung in the fic are You Can't Win by Kelly Clarkson (but for the purpose of the fic by Veronica Mars), Crazy little Thing called Love by Michael Buble and Suddenly by LeAnne Rimes. Feel free to click the links and listen.
5. This series doesn’t have a beta. I’ve tried to get one but have been unsuccessful. If you’d like to help me out either drop me a comment or shot me a PM because I’d really like to have a beta for this verse.
6. Other than that enjoy! Feel free to leave a comment and feel free to leave constructive criticism as long as you are nice about it and won’t bite my head off if I ask for clarification (yes I’ve had that happen before).

A/N: I’m not sure how happy I am with this. To me it feels off, which isn’t surprising when I started it two years and haven’t looked at it since. Until today that it. So I hope you enjoy what I’ve done. I’m sorry if you don’t. This is for one of the prompts on my svpromptstables table. If you'd like to leave a prompt for me to fill you can go here and do so. I promise I'll get to them all at some point :D
So enjoy and feel free to comment :D
