Raise Your Hand If You Know The Answer!  
Question #1: How is this my life? My Teen Wolf fic writing started with this gen fic that I knew upfront was going to be like 20k. But I got stalled out and thought, “That’s okay, I’ll go write some shorter fics to get into the fandom with, so I just don’t throw a 20k gen fic into the void.” I wrote this 4k humor/romance fic that turned out just like I wanted, all good; that 2k piece that I posted a few days ago that was meant to be a NC-17 kink-ish PWP, which you can see, didn’t quite work out, but also turned out all good. (maybe there's something in the Teen Wolf water that makes one all soft. I mean - at least the last time I was there - their kink_meme seemed to prompt schmoop the way the SPN kink_meme prompts non-con knotting genderswap. Not that there’s anything wrong with that). Then there is the story I have been working on for months now, in starts and stops. The one that was meant to be 6k and is now up over 10,000 words and they have only just had their first kiss. Three more scenes to go before they kiss again and another three before they have a makeout session. And the thing is, I’m not going any higher than handjobs in this fic - (maybe, possibly, blowjobs). So I am about to turn out like 25k on a fic that doesn’t even have any full-on sex in it! I ask you again…how is this my life?

Question #2: On a more serious note - who has an IPad? Do you know how to download video to it using something other than ITunes? My sister took a bunch of video of the kids while my brother was home visiting and edited it together. We want to show it to my grandparents but Grandpa has a hard time with the smaller screens, so I want to put it on the IPad. I know how to download using ITunes and how to take a video with my camera app and watch it on my photo-roll, but I can’t seem to download from a dl link or a youtube link (using the 'keepit' software). Is there a way to get a video onto your photo/camera roll from an outside source?

Question #3: This is for my SPN brethren and contains mega-spoilers for Season 8, so… Are there any angels that we have met, besides Castiel, that aren’t dead yet? And don’t say Gabriel! I know, I agree, he’s not dead…but I need an angel who would have fallen from Heaven in the S8 finale. I can’t think of any. I’d say it’s hard out there for an angel, but let’s be honest, everyone on SPN dies. You know what I realized the other day? All of those Angel-Turned-Human fics that I am so fond of writing...aren’t going to be Altered-Reality anymore. I mean, unless a fic takes place during specific events that happen pre-S8 - it will all technically be canon now. The ‘Dean & Cas having a heart-to-heart about family’ that I just wrote, having no specific timeline, could totally be canon. I have been writing that theme in my SPN fic for about three years now as altered-canon versions of things and it does feel a little weird to know that it no longer will be. But the thing I need to know about the angels is definitely for a S8 fic, set during/just after The Great Fall, and I think it would work better with a lesser known angel than Cas. If you can think of one, I’d love you forever! I guess the fact that I am writing a post-S8 fic means that I am excited about the show again? Because I never thought I would write anything post-S5 and yet, here I am!

Naomi and Metatron for sure, right?

Did Anna ever really die?

Also, here's a list of angel names for you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_theological_angels

Metatron, yes, but since he caused everyone to fall, I have no sympathy for whatever state he currently finds himself in (as the fic is someone stumbling across one of these angels on the ground now). Is Naomi still alive? Because I would LOVE to use her but for some reason I thought she died. If she did not, then hell yes, Naomi!

Did Anna ever really die?

Yeah, sadly she did, which sucks because I loved her and would have really liked to have seen her and Cas (and Dean) develop a real honest friendship. But Michael smited the shit out of her while he was in Young!John form (aka Matt Cohen is a sexass form) in the second time travel ep.

Oooooh, excellent idea! My sister has an entire Encyclopedia of Angels (it's fucking awesome actually) and I don't know why I didn't think of flipping through that. I forgot she even had it until just now. Yeah, if I don't go with Naomi then I will probably end up using a random angel like this, which could be maybe even better.

Thanks for the help!

You're very welcome! I look forward to reading it.

Hey, did you ever see the Star Trek heads I made and posted?

Hey, did you ever see the Star Trek heads I made and posted?

I did! I think it was during the week of The Canadian Invasion and I didn't have time to comment, but they were awesome. I particularly liked Warf's! And, uh, oh crap, Whoopi's character, as well. Are you going to be turning them into tshirts - (did you submit the X-Men ones to the tshirt place too?)

I don't have the right programs to set up the submission the way they want it. I have to decide if it's worth spending the money on Photoshop....

I suppose it depends on whether or not you think you'll end up using it for other things as well - otherwise probably not worth your money as it is expensive. But man, I miss the days when I had Adobe Photo Deluxe - it was the greatest program ever and I made so much art with it.
Ironlily - Making My Marquevikingprincess on July 18th, 2013 12:09 am (UTC)
Yeah. I just don't think I'd use it for anything else - I'm a very simple image designer. (Read: art on a computer is HARD.)
Why all the pearls?Why all the hair?Why anything?: SPN - Cas powered uprhymephile on July 14th, 2013 08:06 am (UTC)
What about the male cupid they met in "My Bloody Valentine"? He got insulted and disappeared. That's basically the only one I can think of aside from like Stunt Angel Number Two that hasn't been killed. Also, the female cupid from the bar in the penultimate episode of this season. Although...Cas did have to cut her hand off to get the cupid's bow (at least that's what I assume, based on the fact that he's seen carrying a plastic shopping bag with *something* in it in the next scene).

Also, we never really saw Raphael die. His vessel was exploded, but we never got the wings scene.

That could be interesting though because she would be easily recognizable to the reader, what with her having only one hand. Oooooh, now I kind of want to use her. We never got her name, right? Did we get the male cupid's name? (just wondering if I name her what sort of names the cupids usually have).

Also, we never really saw Raphael die. His vessel was exploded, but we never got the wings scene.

Hmmmm, you would think if he were still alive we would have heard from him by now though.

I am seriously thinking about the female cupid. That's a fucking awesome idea.

She did have a name, mentioned by the barkeep, Gail. Read more at the Wiki http://www.supernaturalwiki.com/index.php?title=Gail

Yes, a blonde cupid with one hand should be really recognizable in a story!
dodger_sister: angelsdodger_sister on July 17th, 2013 09:16 pm (UTC)
Gail, excellent! And she has a SPNWiki page too! The more I think about this, the more I think this is the way I am going with this fic, using her as the angel in it.

(I feel like I am putting a lot of thought into a fic that is only going to be like 2k - but then again, knowing me, it may morph into a 20k piece by the end, lol).

Thanks for the help!
