HAHAHAAAAA, AWESOME QUESTION!!! Mostly because I actually, ah, um, record acoustic covers on my computer. *blush* Actually have one two-thirds done at the moment.

Soooo, right. My album. Well, lemme post the ones I've done AND the ones I want to do. I'm too tired to get creative, so I'll just list 'em. Driving 600+ miles (round trip) in one day is not fun, even when you're only the passenger. >.<

...Wait, were these supposed to be just covers? Not ones we sing ourselves? Whatever. I'm too tired to follow directions.

So...at what point do you stop adjusting your life to suit someone else's needs in order to deal with your own? And is stopping said adjustments ok even if it hurts someone's feelings, or should I not worry about that? Trying not to pull my hair out here...

AN: I started writing this last year (which is probably why it’s a mite Christina-angst-heavy and not Myka/HG-angst-heavy), but then finals came up and my brain was scrambled like an egg, so I never got around to finishing and posting. It’s probably gonna have a little bit of a different feel to it because I wrote it before Season 3 happened and I was still in finale denial (I mean, I still am, but for this year’s finale). In case the part titles weren’t enough of a hint, there’s a lot of Christmas music referenced in here, so I’ll post a link to the ones I’m referencing specific versions of. And I totally injected this with RL stuff, just for fun.

PS: This ended up being a lot longer than I expected, so I split it into three parts. Blame Myka and HG and the Christmas spirit.

Chapter One: Over Coffee )
green78: (Default)
Ever have one of those days/weeks/months where your brain feels like a carousel - just spinning and going up and down all at once until you have no idea which way you're going?

I even figured out the math for it: schoolwork + (president/choir committee) + new conductor worth shite + (creeper/otherwise fun D&D group) + (hunting down stolen guitar x 3 months) all multiplied by my own stupidity squared and divided by 0 from 1 Nov - 17 Nov and 21 Nov - present (18 - 20 Nov were three blissful days of reprieve).

WELCOME TO NOVEMBER

This does in no way excuse behavioral mistakes - screw that, ULTIMATE FAILURES - on my part but I really wish life would slow down for a sec so I could get everything sorted? Maybe then I'd make less stupid mistakes.

Hah. Yeah, right.

At least Christmas break's soon...after four finals and an essay. Crap.
green78: (Default)
Ah, the internet: the paradise for budding writers who want to test their skills in the world of fanfic, get constructive criticism, or just say, "this is how shit SHOULD'VE gone down!" Lots of imagination running rampant...and therefore, plenty of that little p-word following close behind.

Plagiarism. You know - that thing they tell us not to do when we're writing our essays or we're good 'n fucked.

Now, why would anyone want to plagiarise fanfic, you ask? There may be honor among authors, sure, but plenty of trolls lurk the intrawebs looking for malleable prey. It doesn't even have to be the whole fic; for all I know, the Xena fic I read a month-ish ago has been rewritten and reposted under a different title with a different author taking credit for someone else's creative genius. For all I know, someone took my pride and joy, I Will Always Find You, from ff.net and went, "Heh, let's see, I'll switch this here, and that there, and voila! I'll call it...I Got So Lost." Of course, I'm deluding myself here - there are plenty of better fanfic ideas out there to steal than that one. That shit about "imitation being the sincerest form of flattery"? Doesn't apply here. You can cover a song, you can remake a movie, but rewriting a book? Not gonna fly. If someone decides to write a book about this kid who inherits a ring and goes on a quest to destroy it, Tolkein fans everywhere will cry foul.

Before I pose the following question, let me iterate that I am not so deluded as to think that writers do not have editors. I would like to point out, though, that these editors are not only trained to edit, but they sit and - as far as I know/have heard from authors I've met - sit and build a rapport with the author face-to-face, discuss the book, argue about whatever, etc. If that editor decides to take the author's idea and pass it off as his or her own, shit goes down, lawsuits get filed, and people get fired.

So now I pose the question that is not meant to offend anybody but almost certainly will offend the lot of ye: Do I send my writing to a total stranger for the equivalent of peer review?

This is where a number of things happen:
- Some of you call me a selfish. stuck-up bitch who thinks she's better than everybody else (which, for the record, I so don't)
- Some of you call me a paranoid, greedy freak who takes this shit too seriously
- Some of you will be mortally offended (which I said previously that I didn't intend) and take this as a personal attack (which it isn't)
- Some of you throw up your hands in disgust and say all of the above and that I'm not worthy of being a fanfic author.

If you're still reading this, you - and I'm dead serious when I say this - have my humble thanks.

'Cause seriously - how many people had to do peer review in school and found it to be more than a little nerve-wracking? Yeah, sure, maybe it's only fanfic, but I kind've like my ideas, and if something happens to them and I get accused of being the plagiarist, that kind of hurts. I've heard waaaaaaaayyyyyy too many stories of people having their ideas taken - hell, I've read stories and thought, "Huh...that seems...familiar...." Hell, I'm the sort of person who, if I quote my own stories, credit those stories and say from the start, "yeah, that's from here." If I'm inspired by something/someone, I link. If a chapter includes an obvious shout-out to someone, I announce it. Most other people I know do...but how many don't?

So, to be paranoid or not to be paranoid? To risk having errors pointed out in comments and look/feel like a little bit of an idiot or to see your story pop up somewhere and feel like a REALLY BIG idiot? Maybe I am just paranoid, and I've seen too much plagiarism, and old habits die hard. Again, not a personal attack against anyone - paranoia tends not to discriminate. *cringe*

Now, having this viewpoint might even make me apathetic, after a fashion. Elaborated: If someone asked me to beta-read, and they posted it when I was halfway through beta-ing it because they were either a) impatient, or b) paranoid, I'd totally understand and just go, "Meh. Your words, your call." Apparently this viewpoint offends people, if the Howler I got was any indication. *double cringe* I understand, now, that I broke a sacred fandom law by posting early, but again, see forementioned viewpoint. Now, were I an editor and this was a full-sized novel and the author took it to someone else, then maybe I'd be pissed, but that's a real-world scenario with money and contracts and shit. This is the internet; crazy shit goes down here.

So, after having offended a fair few people before posting this, it'll be interesting to see if this either a) brings some understanding, or b) pisses people off even more. Knowing my luck and karma, b is looking more likely. So, if you feel the need to have your moment of superiority/the pleasure of crushing me under your righteous heel, by all means, stomp away in the comments. If you decide to ignore me forever, by all means, do that too. If you decide to see that I am not only explaining myself but attempting at an apology and understand that people make mistakes sometimes and verbally beating the shit out of them for it is not the way to go, then I once again thank you and apologize for my own ignorance.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go put on some plate armor.

Hi guys!

Yes, I know, I've been missing for awhile. Well, I've been at [livejournal.com profile] meetatgunpoint crying my eyes out over the W13 Season Finale. But I have decided to write a trilogy! The first part of said trilogy has already been posted at MaG, literally five-ish minutes after I finished watching the finale.

Running Up That Hill Part 1: A Deal With God

Here's Part 2, which is much fluffier and most certainly not my best work. It just needed to be written. I'll try to make Part 3 uber-fantastic.

Title: Thunder in our Hearts/We Both Matter
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: S3 Finale
Summary: Shameless fixit fic and sequel to the drabble “A Deal With God”/second in my “Running Up That Hill” trilogy (yes, I’ve decided it will become a trilogy). Artie does the right thing.
PS: Read two fanfics now where someone beat me to this particular fixit idea, but I think it’s an idea we all had/have, so…. Also, forgive me, I forget the name of the watch.
PPS: Shout-out to The Princess Bride in here. Should be easy enough to find.
Warnings: Having written angst, now it’s time for fluff.
………………………
 
FLUFFY FLUFFY )

YES. DEFINITELY. It should be shot down the way we're shot down. It's a holiday for the rich who like to pamper their significant others while the people who make paper flowers get laughed at. It's more of a commercial show-off pissing contest than anything with everyone trying to use gifts to profess how they love someone, even though it should be the random gestures on random days that really show that. And it's oh-so-wonderful at excluding people, namely those who are single and those who can only really afford to make paper flowers, or at least have a small enough chance of succeeding in their display of affection that they can only risk paper flowers.

So maybe my paper flower wasn't the best and made out of notebook paper, but she could have taken it and said thank you even only to make me feel better, though that may even be worse. Every. Fucking. Year.
