Boring Real Life Stuff  
Finally submitted last night to the first of the screenplay competitions/festivals, have another deadline coming up in less than two weeks.  This is always the most stressful time of the year for me (or, at least, it has been for the last five years or so) because I'm in a constant state of "I need to read everything again there might be something wrong what if I rewrite this sequence oh God I bet I just introduced more typos must proofread again!" &c.  I edited and proofed all weekend, and after awhile your eyes just cross.  I'm taking tonight off, and maybe tomorrow, and then I'm going to read the script I wrote last summer and see if it's fit to be sent out. 

I'm also going to try and whip up a Miranda spec for Austin Film Festival, though thankfully I have till the end of May for that one.  And I basically wrote it already in fic format.  LOL, fanfiction = shady and morally reprehensible!  Writing the exact same story in script format = totally respectable activity for an aspiring screenwriter!  So if anyone ever gives you shit about writing fic, just tell 'em it's a rough draft for a spec.  ;)

Also, lots of tumultuous family times at home.  Not anything I feel like getting into online, but suffice it to say that I'd rather be at work most days than at home.  Kinda sad.  One reason I've gotten so much writing done lately is that I just pack up my shit and get out, and at least this way I feel productive.

Also, you have NO IDEA how nice it was to read your latest fic offerings on my breaks today at work. :D:D:D

...You do not want to know what I'm working on right now. But it has to do with a picture that someone drew that's probably on the tumblr somewhere that I said, "Ummmm I don't ship Alan/Junior LIKE AT ALL, but would you mind terribly if I wrote a fic to go with that picture you just drew?" And that someone essentially offered to have my babies.


At this point? That would be totally cool.

I had an idea for an Alan/Kevin story today, but it's kinda angsty and I can't figure out if there'd be any sex. :/

...It is that one.

And I didn't realize it was an iPad because I don't give Alan that much credit for being all up on teh teknologeez because you so know Bruce didn't know whatthefuck to do with that iPad. I thought it was a notepad or a book or something. I said he was going over specs for a new actuarial program.

(That will still work, I'll just have to go back to all the references where he's got an actual pen and paper or some shit and make him more UP ON THE TIMEZ.)

Anyway, thanks. On both counts.

Also, you can write Alan/Kevin stories that are angsty and don't have any sex.

IMHO, that's probably more true-to-lifecannon than "it was the 80s but they were totally gay and it was totally cool."

Basically, so far I have: they were together ~one night, and Alan's all ruminating on it all angsty when Kevin shows back up in the arcade. IDK if it's a story. LOL. I think mostly I just want to write Alan angsting about.

Why do I still not have a TRON icon.

1) It's a story. Alan is played by Bruce. Bruce does angst. Ergo, Alan does angst. Especially in the 90s. (You know, after Kevin's in the Grid and Alan looks like John Sheridan.)

2) IDEFK, but you should find one.
