well, i am supposed to be doing my calc review packet, but who needs math, right? instead i'm working on my twilightbigbang fic of epicness, and it even has a title now, which is unusual just because i can never seem to title anything; usually i just wait until i'm done writing and control+f (or, well, command+f, i guess, since i have a mac now and they really could've left the keyboard the same) an interesting word or else i hit my poetry bookmarks and use the first relevant line that i like (see: this, and this, and this).

update on project contact: i can now put them in and take them out in one try (and, when taking them out at least, without a mirror). why, yes, i am excited. 

i'm reading the screwtape letters by c. s. lewis now. what's ophelia the ipod playing? beau fixeby coralie clement qui j'adore. 

i have a french speaking quiz tomorrow. as a consequence i've been frantically practicing the lovely french r sound. my mother recently informed me that i sound like a dying cat while i do so, so i figured that was an indicator that more practice was necessary. 

in other news, the story idea i've been playing with is starting to come together plot-wise. thank my muse, viola. she's been working overtime - and quite randomly. one idea is for the first pure fantasy i've ever considered writing and the other is for a post-apocalyptic society with vaguely religious undertones.

in other news, my [community profile] twilightbigbang  project is taking shape. i am sensing a fail!baby/jacob/bella/eddiekins rectangle of angsty pointless love. it will be EPIC. and possibly feature inappropriate biblical references. and maybe a trip to quebec. i don't know my muse has been very, very active blame her for the chaos. 

prom, by the by, was incredibly fun. i can now run, walk, and dance in four inch heels. whodathunkit?

I'm back! Finally, I know. I got buried under homework, though. Which is actually the reason behind my latest offering of fic...about Beowulf, book not movie (which sucked). This is kind of my own personal canon for the queen. It was supposed to be for a class assignment but it spun way out of control and morphed into fic. Which is actually kind of sad, come to think of it, because I didn't even like the poem. I guess I missed ficcing that much. -grin-

Another update! Woo! Don't worry, OUAP fans, there is more to come of that, too, but the next chapter is pretty long and very plot-heavy, so it's taking some time. 

Title: Set the Fire to the Third Bar
Fandom:
HP
Characters: Hermione Granger, Lily Evans, the Marauders
Pairing(s): Haven't I made this obvious??
Summary: Basically, it's your usual Harry-goes-evil-and-murders-Hermione's-parents-as-a-sick-birthday-present-so-she-remembers-the-Time-Travel-research-she-did-in-Third-Year-and-uses-thier-blood-to-send-herself-back-to-the-time-of-her-conception fic. Or maybe not. I'll let you be the judge of this one. 
Notes: Another slow chapter, but I promise things start to pick up after this. Maybe not as fast as some other stories, but fast enough. Thank you to all the lovely reviewers! I hope you like this.

And, above all...

Yay! Another update! This one is for Set the Fire to the Third Bar, and, in keeping with (accidental) Snow Patrol theme, this chapter is called "Run". I hope you like it! And feedback is always appreciated.

Or maybe not. I'll let you be the judge of this one. 
Notes: I know this chapter is a little slow, but bear with me. It takes some backstory and plotting to make a good time-travel fic. They can't all be "Hermione falls into immediate romance"-type things. And alright, I admit I love those stories. But, nevertheless, I am continuing on with such things as Plot and World Building and other Mundane Things that hopefully make this story just a little better then it would otherwise have been. Tell me if it works, please. And thank you to all the lovely people who left feedback - you rock.

And, above all...

Part Two of Chapter Two! Woot! Sorry about the confusion, but lj just wouldn't post the entire chapter. So, I split it in half - sorta. Anyways, here you go!

Story: Once Upon A Time
Chapter:  2/?
Fandom: BtVS/Harry Potter
Disclaimer: I don't own anything. Harry Potter and Buffy the Vampire Slayer have been borrowed from thier respective owners for a little while. This is strictly for entertainment purposes, only, and no money's being made - if it were, I would have better things to do then sit around all day with a laptop.
Word Count: 6572
Summary: A teenage girl is given an impossible destiny. She’s taken away from everything she knows and everyone thinks she’s dead. Eight years later, she’s back, and in for one hell of a fight. 
Notes: PLEASE COMMENT!!! And, enjoy! And this chapter seems to be too large, so I guess it's gonna be split into two posts. 

Check for Part One here!

Many thanks to my fabulous new beta, [profile] maebynot-- she rocks. Here's the latest chapter of Once Upon A Time. Actually on time, for once. (Please, refrain from showing your shock.)

Or not, since I'm far more likely to be the redheaded stepchild (if I felt like dying said hair) then have one at this point in my life. The sentiment is the same, though. I have returned to the world of fanfic, and I'm commemorating that in the best way I know how - updating rewriting. 

That's right. I've finally gotten around to doing something with Once Upon A Time. I went with what all of my lovely reviewers have said (and how lovely you all are - I owe each and every one of you a cookie or twenty), and decided to rewrite. Behold, the fruits of my labor...or not, since this still doesn't have a beta, yet. Remember, folks, I desperately need one. 

So, without further ado, I give you my first draft of Chapter One - again.

For all of you who didn't already know, I am rcaqua over at ff.net. Lately, I've put off most of my fic writing in favor of working things out in Real Life, but today I came to a decision. To save myself the trouble of re-writing this decision, I am just going to post the Author's Note that I put into my fic Once Upon A Time


So click on the pretty little cut and tell me what you think.

We went to Williamsburg. But I didn't get the phone. Frank is doing better, but he has to take all of these meds. The trip was good. Found the best bok on colonial clothing and their attached meanings ever. It's What Clothes Reveal, the Language of Clothes in Colonial and Federal America by Linda Baumgarten. If anyone ever wants to learn about colonial clothes/period details, that is the book to use. It's huge and heavy, but filled with incredible pictures and even better information. Great price, too. Only $65. God, I love the people at the John D. Rockefeller Research Library. If I ever get a book published (and I hope I do) they totally get a shout out. They deserve it. I'm trying to get my work done before school starts, but with Frank and his heart, and everything else that's going on, it doesn't seem very likely. Ugh. Oh well, at least I've got a good start.
