It's kinda hard to know what to write after you've been gone for a while. There's fandom stuff.
I saw that Jared and Sandy broke up. The poor guy looked pretty crushed about it. I think it's proof that J2 really does destroy the soul that I immediately thought: So get Jensen plastered and make your move already. But, I mean, seriously, it's both horrible because of how sad he looks and also not so vaguely reminiscent of half the J2 fics I've read. Still, poor guy.
When he hooks up with another girl we're all going to be crushed.
Also, the big bangs are out. Well, they're trickling out. I have to tell you, as far as signs go, the fact that I was more excited for Big Bangs than I was for Christmas or my Birthday last year is probably pretty telling. Still, slightly pathetic or no, I'm having a freaken fantastic time. Good J2 AU are hard to find, and I was starting to worry that I'd pretty much tapped the internet.
But here they are, just in time. New, beautiful stories just about every day. It's marvelous.
I'm not reading as much wincest as I used to. Not that I've suddenly decided it's wrong or anything. I mean, look who you're talking to here. I'm just not that interested in the fic that the show's direction is producing. Of course, I thought the same thing about the five hundred thousand "Save Dean's Soul" stories too, and I ended up reading and liking quite a few of those. So, I guess we'll see. But for now, while the internet is flooded with happy J2 goodness ... Dean/Sam has kinda taken a backseat to Jensen/Jared.
Because I really, really love a good J2 AU. It's an endless supply of reading material, all full of characters that I know and love. And they're getting inventive. Or, you know, not. Some are inventive and brilliant and some are just remakes of movies that we loved, or didn't, and they're brilliant too. It's basically just good all the way around.
lol. As if I need to convince most of you guys.
I think I'll actually put together a rec list here pretty soon. I've been a bookmarking fiend, so I have a lot to share. And I've got about 18k or so of a J2 AU written. It's about the boys in rehab. Not exactly happy, but not as dull and grey as it sounds either. Kinda surprisingly schmoopy, actually.
And there's real life stuff, but none of that is anywhere near as entertaining as fandom ... or as easy. I think I'm basically going through another mid-life crisis. This is like the third one. I'm 23 now. Usually, I'm pretty sure people spread them out a little better.
... Who knows.
So, basically, that's what I've been up to. I'm really going to make an effort to write in this thing a lot more. For gods sake, it's a journal. All I have to do is talk about myself and the things that amuse me. And that really shouldn't be a problem. I'm in my head constantly.
