Well, that was surprisingly fun. I tag everyone who wants to do this meme and as for the questions - feel free to post your own.

Perhaps I am somewhere patient, somehow
kind, perhaps in the nook

of a cousin universe I've never defiled or betrayed
anyone. Here I have
two hands and they are vanishing, the hollow of your back
to rest my cheek against,

your voice and little else but my assiduous fear to cherish

-- Bob Hicok

Kurde, poddaję się. Próbowałem napisać coś po polsku na ten Fikaton na [ profile] multifandom_pl, ale po prostu nie mogę. Polski język trudna język i k… jak ja mam napisać po polsku "crime scene" skoro "miejsce zbrodni" brzmi beznadziejnie? A szczególnie rozglądanie się po nim.

Angielski zatem pozostaje.

You know how it sometimes is with a new fandom? Or maybe every fandom? You'd like to maybe write something, but you don't really know what. And you'd like to get a better feel of the characters so you'd like the fic to be short and somehow character-focussed as opposed to an action-driven one.

So you find a kink meme and think 'Hey, this looks good. And I don't even have to write smut, there are bound to be some interesting prompts in here.' And you do find a few prompts that you'd like to try. And you choose one, thinking that it'll surely be 600-700 words at most because your writing has always been too concise and since there are no big plot developments, it'll take you just a few days to write.

And then you let the fic consume your brain and it's two bloody weeks later and you've only just finished the stupid thing and it takes 30 effing pages in your notebook *headdesk*.

Because why spend your two-week holidays just doing nothing: re-watching favourite shows, reading that pile of books you've been putting aside for when YOU'VE GOT HOLIDAYS when you can write fics, kidding yourself every day that you see the end. A week into the writing I realised the end is nowhere in sight. It's always bloody the same: you just stare at the page, thinking 'come on, guys, why do you feel the need to do this or that or go there or drink pints of tea before you even consider moving on?'

Well, at least I finished it just as I finished the holidays.

Also, no smut. I fail at kink memes.

In other (but sort of related) news: I made my friend watch Whitechapel. After watching S1 and S2, he texted me: 'Murders are awesome but Kent's so gay and so in love with Chandler it's not even funny'.

Now he and his wife are having debates over Kent's chances with Chandler and I got another text: 'I hate you, you perv. I want S3 and S4'.

Mission accomplished. Hehhheheheeheeheh

Heeey, look what I've found: tiny (11-year-old) Sam Stockman and Dominic Keating (thanks, [personal profile] megan_moonlight for reminding me about Malcolm) in Desmond's. S5E12: A Matter Of Life And Death.

I used to watch this series back when I was a bit more into ENT (I'm not obsessed, I swear) and predictably, spent the whole episode with a grin on my face :D

So, the new Morrissey album has just been released and the other day I went to a music shop to see if they've already got it and think about maybe buying it. I did buy it in the end - I guess I just like to torture myself. The bloke sure left his philosophy of "we don't have to be violent or ugly, we can just be charming" or "it takes guts to be gentle and kind" a mile behind.
And then there's still the matter of court case and other things and I just want to punch him in the face most of the times.

And his bassists and drummers nowadays make my ears bleed with their utter mediocrity.

Anyway, yeah, I think I need to prepare myself mentally for this album first.

On a more positive note, during that trip I also bought Kajagoogoo's box set: two Kajagoogoo albums, one Kaja album and two Limahl solo albums. And that particular bout of insanity can be ascribed entirely to Whitechapel. Because there is Kent and his stupid tie with his stupid band pins (evidence below). I nearly pissed myself laughing when I saw one of the badges is a Kajagoogoo one and then I got thinking that it must have been the music of Kent's early childhood so maybe he's feeling nostalgic for that and he probably watched Never Ending Story when he was a kid and if he liked/listened to Kajagoogoo when he was little, he probably listened to Eurythmics and is so indoctrinated by Wham!'s Last Christmas he thinks it's not a proper Christmas until he hears it.

Greetings, my dwelling-in-the-same-childhood-music-landscape friend :D

Also, the above story shows once again why I shouldn't be allowed into music shops when I've got spare money on me.
