paraka: Adam Lambert thinking (AI8-A-Thinking)
Hmmm, should I do 3 Day Novel this year? I don't think I have any plans for that weekend and last year I did get a good chunk written. I'm not very good with the actually-sitting-down-and-writing thing so the 10K I got out was probably the most I've ever written of fic. Granted I got 10K in and hadn't even introduced one of the main characters yet. When I was talking to [personal profile] diurnal_lee about 3 Day Novel a couple months ago, I joked that it could be an annual tradition for me to write bits of that fic every year for 3DN and maybe in a decade it'll actually be finished (it's kind of an epic story :S).

I totally could write that fic but I'm not really feeling it right now. I'm a little too in love with Kradam at the moment to write John/Cameron. Although, if I wanted to do a bit of both, I could write that Kradam/Terminator crossover idea I have.... Or I could write the one where love at first sight is a medical condition and the boys come down with it while on Idol... and don't notice.

I need to start thinking about this now because I'm going to need to have some kind of story line laid out before going into the weekend if I want to get anything out of it.

I don't know why, since I do pretty much everything on the computer, but when I want to write fic, I get more done if I do it in a note book rather than typing it out.

Of course, this means more work, since I'll eventually have to transcribe it to the computer (assuming I ever finish something) but whatever, it works for me. I think it's maybe because being on a computer provides too many distractions and I end doing things like updating my journal instead of writing :P

Still, I feel I was somewhat productive today, since I started off wanting to read an AI/Terminator cross over, to wanting to write one but having no idea what it'd be about, to a full plot line with the first scene written out.

I'm trying to keep things short, in the interest of actually finishing it (unlike my other Terminator cross over that I abandoned at 10K :( Maybe one day it'll be finished).

Dear Brain,

What do you have against happy endings? All of the good fic ideas you come up with have sad unhappy endings! In my terminator epic you ended the fic with a giant 3 way war where the world is basically destroyed. At least you had your OTPs together and came up with a sequel where you could prevent the giant 3 way war from happening. But in order to do that you had to break up your OTP. Then you created *another* sequel with time looping where sometimes your OTP was together and other times they weren't until half of your OTP died. Not happy.

And now. Now that I'm in Merlin fandom, which is all happy and ridiculous slash, you come up with a kind of cool OT4 idea which is fun and sexy-hot in the beginning but ends with them all scattered to the winds and dying bitter and lonely. WHAT DO YOU HAVE AGAINST HAPPY ENDINGS BRAIN!? I WANT TO KNOW SO I CAN FIX IT!!

No love,
Me.

So, I'm currently in the middle of a Terminator rewatch. I haven't talked about it much here on my journal, but I'm doing 3 Day Novel and writing a Terminator fic for it (although now it's morphed into this giant multi fandom 'verse, god). So, to prepare for next weekend, I'm rewatching all of Terminator.

So far I've made it through all the movies, and am just finishing up S1 of SCC. While rewatching though, I noticed a horrible piece of Bad!Science, that I just can't get over.

When Derek was bleeding out on the table, Charlie says that they need some AB blood, the rarest blood type. Cameron volunteers that Sarah is type O, the universal donor, but Charlie insists that they need AB blood. John asks to be tested, and image that, he has type AB blood.

Now, if you know anything about genetics, you know that the reason *why* AB blood is so rare, is because your parents would have had to have had blood types, A, B or AB. O is recessive! If one of your parents had type O blood, you can't have type AB!!!

However, due to this horrible piece of science, [profile] kronos999 came up with this awesome fic idea that I'm going to make her write. *Make* her. *nods*

So, since I spent a lot of time in bed last night not sleeping my thoughts ended up turning where they seem to spend most of their time these days: Terminator.
