Talking about Fanfic  
So all of a sudden I'm finding myself writing B5 fic again.  Trying to finish these pesky WIPs!  The problem is, I haven't watched the show since I sort of dropped out of fandom/quit writing fic.  I'm constantly googling things or checking the B5 wiki because I don't remember shit.  "Thingy Delenn uses to make the Chrysalis" - right, the Triluminary!  "When does Delenn get the Triluminary?"  And so on.

Basically I'm the worst fan.

It was kind of fun reading through some of my old fic, though.  Every now and then I would be like, this isn't half bad!  And it's nice to take a break from all my "real" writing on occasion.  I don't know how many people are even still on LJ that are still actively in B5 thingies, but at a certain point you have to write for yourself anyway.

I'm constantly going back and just reading chunks of my novel, because I've been working on it so long and it's gotten so long, I forget shit all the time. "Oh yeah, that's a dangling plot thread! I need to do something with that at some point!"

I'm on AO3 as kungfuwaynewho, but I don't have much B5 stuff cross-posted over there yet. I was trying to use its "load fic from other location" function to put Metamorphoses up there, as I just finished a new chapter for that, but it didn't work; so I'm going to start trying to slowly but surely upload everything over there. It's just kind of tedious, which is why I haven't done it yet.

I think I've written one fic that would require a warning - and even that's stretching a tiny bit - but I still have found myself staring at that list of tags thinking that I'm going to get in trouble if I've forgotten something.

You've motivated me to try and shift over at least one story a day! That's not too hard. I can do that. (Watch me never put anything up ever again.)
