girlanachronism: an animated list of reason why I no longer have an appropriate icon (Default)
As some of you may know, my laptop got broken over New Year, and I lost everything on it. I wasn't that bothered, really, because it was mostly uni stuff and since it's between years there was nothing on there I needed to save. But I was a bit sad about the fic bits and pieces.

Anyway, today I found an old back up drive, IDK, maybe a year old? I spent way to much time looking through all the old files. It was awesome :D all this stuff I'd forgotten starting, stuff I thought was lost, stuff I can't even identify as coherent sentences...

I'm kinda tempted to take some of them up again. But I haven't written much for ages now, I think I'd be even worse than when I started, if that was possible.

Besides, there's just so much! Seriously, whole piles of fakenews stuff; the first chapter of a sort of record-store au I started once, the first chapter of a film noir-ish mystery thing (which I had a sort of plot outline to at one point but I forgot it and it's not on the harddrive, so I too have no idea how it ends), a couple of random pieces of girl!Ollie and girl!Riggle, all sorts of stuff. And there's some random Good Omen-esque conversations I think I wrote before I even knew what fandom was. Little romantic Mighty Boosh fragments, too.

Oh, and for some reason roughly page long story about Howard Moon and Vince Noir buying a catapault (wtf, past-me?)

So, uh, there's is no point to this post, really, just my manic need to put my indecision into writing: on the one hand, I remember these ideas! Some of them were fun, and there are bits I still like!  On the other hand... writing is hard... and I fail at it. Really bad.

Maybe someone could adopt some of the ideas. Or something.

I might post the catapault thing for laughs, though. Gotta do something to distract myself from the fact that I broke up with my boyfriend right before fucking Valentines day *headdesk* I hate pink hearts very much right now.

It seems my purpose in life is to steal memes...

The problem with Livejournal is that we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. Hence, I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don’t know about you.


That, and listen to angsty music. Thank you, White Lies. My mind is now officially full of tragedy, unrequited love and bad behaviour at funerals.

Also, I spent a large portion of today casting my favourite books in my head. As I often do. The one that stuck me was Good Omens. (Fair warning: I have loved this book for a long time and will rant about it on a semi-regular basis) Now, I know it was going to be made into a film but it fell through, and the rumoured casting choices were Johnny Depp as Crowley (well, YES. Clearly. Because it's Johnny Depp. And it is clearly specified in the book; 'good cheekbones') and... get this... Robin Williams as Aziraphale. WHAT THE FUCK.

That is wrong on so many levels.

But anyway, the point is I can't come up with perfect casting for Good Omens. Got any ideas? Who is Aziraphale: English, intelligent, and gayer than a tree full of monkeys on nitrous oxide? Who Crowley, the dark-haired Angel who did not Fall as much as Saunter Vaguely Downwards?
