|Oh hey, I have a journal, don't I?
I seem to have forgotten that in addition to the obvious fandom purposes that I use my journal for, I can also use my LJ to write down my thoughts. This is a good thing. I have a lot of those. But the library I'm at is only open for another twenty minutes, so I'll just put down the important stuff. And by important I mean fandom-related.
I'm writing a Dean/Castiel fanfiction. I'm simultaneously thrilled and terrified about this. I've never written/posted a legitimate fanfic before, but it's always been something that I've wanted to do. However, I've never even met Castiel in canon, so I worry that my Cas voice will be ridiculously wrong, despite my obsession with him. And what I'm writing is pretty cracktastically crazy to begin with.My summary is basically this:after Dean starts singing E.T. in the car to annoy Sam/because it got stuck in his head when he heard it at a diner, Gabriel gets an idea to both have fun with his favorite victims and possibly help out his little brother. This leads to Dean being forced to listen various Castiel-relevant songs in the car (including one instance of Britney Spears) and a confused!Cas when Dean confronts him. I'm also considering putting some Sabriel in it.
Basically, I don't understand my life choices. But if it works out, I might post it to the Dean/Castiel community. Which would be, as previously stated, simultaneously thrilling and terrifying. Perhaps I can find someone else that knows the characters/fandom to read it. Note to self: Make internet friends.
As a side note, the Zombie!Collection fanfiction seems to be going well. For some reason, writing about my closest friends in the zombie apocalypse comes pretty easily to me. But writing it is good. I'm just worried that it's going to become too Anna-centric, seeing as I'm a character in this story, in a weird not-self-insert sort of way. Regardless, the lights are off in the library, so I must be away. Current Mood: thirsty

|Ramblings of the day
So I just remembered that the point of livejournal, is, in fact, to journal, so I'm going to attempt to do so. Also, this is probably easier than writing things down, given the fact that I type really quickly and am left-handed. Today was good because I spent eight hours of it with Proctor, whom I hadn't seen since he left for Basic around July. At first it was awkward, but it went back to the way we used to be pretty quickly, and it reminded me that the reason that I was able to tolerate living in El Paso for as long as I did was that there were some pretty fantastic people living here with me. But now that most of the people I care about here are gone, it seems kind of pointless for me to be here. Also, I miss everyone so much that it occasionally physically hurts. Watching TV helps though. I've gotten fairly addicted to Doctor Who, but I've been so busy either being forced to do things with my mother or feeling obligated to do things with friends that I still haven't finished the fifth season, so hopefully that'll get done tomorrow. And I've been watching tons of Buffy, my coping mechanism of choice. But hopefully I'll get out of this house soon. Tomorrow I get to ask about possibly leaving on the fifth, and having something like that to look forward to will make everything else far more bearable.
Anyway, I've been pondering actually participating in something on a community. I've written fic before, but most of it was TERRIBLE. But it was het, which has never exactly been my forte. So I'm thinking about writing some slash and posting it somewhere after I have someone look over it. I'll ask Allie, but I'm not sure if she would want to because of squick levels. Also, I'd like to attempt to make some icons. But mostly, I'm sick of being trapped in this house. I feel like I'm stuck here just like I was stuck here as a kid, and that's a horrible feeling to relive. So I've just been telling myself that it should be over soon, and distracting myself with Buffy and people from my real home in Denton. If anyone reads this, I apologize for the randomness and super huge angst levels of it. /rant Current Mood: melancholy

|First post :)
Okay, so I highly doubt that anyone is ever going to read this, but nonetheless, I'm happy to finally have a LJ to call my own, after lurking for almost half of my life. :p. I'm hoping that I'll be able to make some new friends here, as I might need them when I move at the end of the month. Either way, It's nice to have this to write in, and should come in handy. I'm sure it'll be much better once I have more to write about and there are people other than me reading it.
So, today I was going to see Rocky Horror downtown like I do every year. However, my parents decided to throw out a slew of homophobic comments and refuse to take me. Despite the fact that I've been watching it since I was thirteen. It's just another thing to be free from when I leave. I moped around in my Magenta costume, and started working on my t-shirt quilt with the squares I cut out about three years ago. It's almost done though, so I'm pretty happy. I think I'm gonna look around this site, and see what kind of mischief I can manage. :p Current Mood: tired
