Where did my life go?  

It's been a very exhausting few months and I hardly know my own name anymore (yes I'm whining and will probably continue to do so until I've graduated *smile* Luckily there's only three weeks left of school) I haven't been able to get online to roleplay in a very long time and fanfic-writing has been close to non-existent. Thankfully things will have calmed down by next week, as our final grades must be set by Monday night, so after that I'll be back doing fun stuff again *impatient*

Got sucked into a new fandom the other week/month/something like that. Stargate Atlantis has been running on Swedish TV for a while now and I'm a tad obsessed with it - especially Drs Rodney McKay and Radek Zelenka. Have already written a few self-indulgent drabbles and am stalking the Net for Zelenka fics. McKay there's plenty of, which is great, but there needs to be more Zelenka fiction out there! Will have to do something to add to the Zelenka love when time starts again (aka next week).

Having trouble finding a preferred pairing in Atlantis, which perhaps is good. The biggest pairing seems to be Sheppard/McKay and though I like it I seem to have gravitated more towards the rare pairings *sigh* I guess it's a "too much of the good" kind of thing. But I like being able to pair everyone with everyone (slash, het or moresomes), as it means more fanfics to read. Not having an OTP actually feels rather nice.

Atlantis has caused me to read more ensemble fics, though, which is something I didn't do before - if not reading gen I used to be perfectly happy only reading about the actions of the people being paired in a fic. Now I'm just as interested in their relationship with their friends and other family as with their partner...feels a bit weird that, but in a good way. It's been a long time since I found a fandom where all the characters interested me. I think I'll stay in it for a long, long time.

Current Mood: okayokay

OMG! HAHAHAHHAHAHHHHAHHA SGA! *dies a little inside*

It's so fucking addicting, because it's so god damn bad.

Yes, I know - SGA is sort of like a black hole, it just suck you in. And I just can't help being fascinated by a fandom where a large amount of the pairing names sound like their taken off a McDonalds menu (McShep, McWeir, McLenka...). To be honest I'm more interested in the characters than in the show's plot; which has lead me to write several weird crossovers and AUs - none serious and all for my own, and possibly melodytime's, enjoyment (we challenged each other to a sort of A-Z drabble/fan art any-fandoms-you-can-think-of-list, to keep away the depression schoolwork can cause). Most of them of course evolved into much bigger projects - especially one Harry Potter/SGA crossover/AU that I just couldn't help writing, 'cause I love messing with all fandom universes and am an evil person - and I might post them here, if only to have people laugh at them *smile* Everyone needs a good laugh now and then.

Btw, I laughed very much out loud at your icon. Love it! (Yes, I'm obsessed with Doctor Who as well...*sigh*)

No, that's exactly how I feel. I just love Rodney. And Sheppard is just confusing.
