I am deep in the throes of editing my Big Bang fic, which I post on THIS Friday. I am so freaking NERVOUS, I can't even tell you. My first time participating in Big Bang, and it's so SOON. And heidi8
just sent me the two vids she's making for me and I watched the 'trailer' (set to Star Wars music, since my fic is loosely based on it) and I squealed so hard I might have pulled a muscle. Worth it!
Now I'm anxiously awaiting the download of the other vid so I can scream into my fists and all that exciting stuff. :D
But really, I'm supposed to be fixing all the damage I did to that fic by writing 12,000 words of it in about 10 hours. Um, a bit of shaping up is needed. *cough*
Last week, I did a little happymaking fic meme thingie in my LJ and received some super fun prompts from some lovely folks on my f-list. I figured I'd share the ficlets that resulted in hopes of spreading the smiles around some more. ♥ I still have a few prompts to reply to, which I will do after Big Bang wraps up for me. ON FRIDAY. Oh god.
These links will take you back to the post where I wrote them all in the comments, just FYI. Enjoy! (I hope!)
: Jared/Jensen, Days of Our Lives marathon
: Jared/Jensen, crochet
For annkiriJared/Jensen, iphone shenanigans!
: Bobby and a parrot. (Bonus Wincest!)
: J2, love love love.
: J2, shark bottle opener
And heck, if you want to leave a prompt at that post tonight, go for it! I've got lots of fic projects to work on, but these little short things help get my juices flowing, if you know what I mean, and I THINK YOU DO.
Also, I'm kind of a dork about stuff like this, but I just wanted to point out the subject line of this post. The full quote is: "Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy." by Thich Nhat Nanh. I DO believe this can be true. It sounds cheesy and all that, but I find that if I just smile, if I try to find the good things in a day that is maybe not going so well, the very act of trying, of smiling at the next person who walks by, actually makes me feel happier. So, yeah. Just thought I'd share that. And remind you that I see the world through these oh-so-stylish rose-colored glasses. Like you could ever FORGET. ♥ETA:
If the glass in your windows just cracked, I apologize. Heidi sent me the music vid for my BB story and I emitted a seriously high-pitched noise after watching. SORRY. (EEEEEE.)
