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!
