God damn it, it's true. Aspen just doesn't go spreading rumors around from what I know of her, and it's been confirmed elsewhere; I checked. I know, I know, the actor and the character are separate, and I know the character will live on forever, but still. All I can think is oh, Sarah Jane.

And damn it, in my head I can totally hear Four saying almost the same thing. Hell, he's said it in fic of mine, whether or not he ever did quite that way in canon. "Oh, my Sarah Jane."

Oh, Sarah Jane. I didn't know a thing about the actress, but her character was--is--basically me. That subheading to my journal is there for a reason; it's a reference to two 'Doctor Who in five words or less' snippets, both intended as notes on a fridge. The first is Sarah, the second is Charlie. See why I put it there? Oh, this is such a shame. Fuck cancer, really. And entropy. As I said on twitter, to quote a wizardly phrase: Fairest and fallen, greeting and defiance.

And rest in peace, Elisabeth Sladen.

There'll be real content once I'm back in Madison. Trust me, there will totally be content; I've finally seen AU!Star Trek, so there's definitely chattering ahead. For now, however...

Name your 15 absolutely favorite couples (het/slash/canon/fanon) and ask people to see what trends they notice about your couples. Try to pick different fandoms.

1. Geordi La Forge/Leah Brahms, Star Trek TNG
2. Four/Sarah Jane Smith, Doctor Who
3. Ben Sisko/Eris, Star Trek DS9
4. Luka Kovac/Carol Hathaway, ER
5. Matt Parkman/Mohinder Suresh, Heroes
6. Chakotay/B'Elana Torres, Star Trek Voyager
7. Nyota Uhura/Hikaru Sulu,Star Trek
8. Kerry Weaver/Sandy Lopez, ER
9. Thursday Next/Landen ParkeLaine, the Thursday Next series
10. Sherlock Holmes/Irene Adler, the Sherlock Holmes series/A Scandal In Bohemia
11. Remus Lupin/Sirius Black, the Harry Potter series
12. Henry Blake/Radar O'Riley, M*A*S*H
13. Jeffrey Sinclair/Talia Winters, Babylon 5
14. Susan Ivanova/Talia Winters, Babylon 5
15. Nita Callahan/Kit Rodriguez, the Young Wizards series

The only trend I can readily spot here is a rather obvious one; why yes, I'm a Star Trek fan, why do you ask? XD

Now to make sure everything's sorted and packed, and then get my behind back to Madison.

I still do write, I swear. Life's been busy as hell, and now that I actually have a free moment or three, here's the proof that scribbling is still possible. and yes, blame any parallels between a certain journalist and myself on my living vicariously through her. *envies*

Turning Point )
chanter_greenie: a Pringles can with the words 'you can't write just one' written across it (drabbles are like pringles)
So I'm walking down the sidewalk and just as I'm realizing the downside of a tailwind as my hair gets thrown straight into my face I hear a voice behind me calling "Sarah!" And I turn my head to see who it is and I hear footsteps, wearing sneakers, running down the sidewalk toward me. And even though I'm moving fairly quickly for me he catches up because he's twice my size or at least it certainly feels that way. And when he catches up I feel these long arms go around my waist and I squeak but he spins me around and I look up and up into that incredibly familiar face, and that amazing voice is booming "Surprise! Hello!" And all I can do is stare at him and beam and when I do think, I hug him. And the rest is literary lost adventure history.

On days like this, I wish.

I'll write a real update later. Thank goodness for Mandy and for decent professors being forgiving. Other than that, oy. Sorry for the fourth era ramble, blame a random daydream that hit me over the head on the way home from class.
Again written for [livejournal.com profile] writers_choice's open challenge. My first attempt for this particular prompt just... didn't want to be written or something, because the words refused to work. And today my mother opened a music box that I hadn't seen in years and this song came out. Instant inspiration! And now I'm all mused out for a day or so, I think... unless a dream hits me again... or another episode of Dead Ringers... *mumbles* I'm hopeless, aren't I?

and am I mad or is Jordan also susan Ivanova? She's a sound-alike!

Yeah, this one.

Surprise surprise, it's not Geordi-Leah this time *gasp!* shocking, I know. The muse got hold of me after I saw one line in a quirky sort of drabble... how to explain it. It was five-word ficlets that made up two drabbles, and two of the lines were "Sarah and Harry travel." "More daleks, Sarah abandoned abruptly." And naturally the part of me that feels like Sarah Jane had something to say about that. I got inspired, commandeered the computer and wrote this. It follows on in the same universe as shape Shifting, obviously, and I confess I was writing *me* as much as I was her. My RL life and daydreams are uber-visible, I know. This just... had to get written.

And the tongue twister that gets de-twisted and changed as part of Sarah's thought processes actually goes like this:

Say this shortly, say this sweetly,
say this softly, say this sharply,
say this sixteen times in succession.

but I flaming well wasn't going to have four do *that*!

And there's a song with the same title as this fic, that's where I got it. That and... life.

Dedicated to Leila, because she’s the one got me into this particular fandom to begin with. Yes, [livejournal.com profile] tajnyj, this one's for you, since you converted me. :)
834 words, longest I’ve ever done for a challenge

Shape Shifting )

And if anyone wants to know where Sarah got childhood memories like those, ask me. I lived them... all but the one where the doctor walks up to her out of nowhere, since I *wish* but that's still a daydream.
