11:26 am - Dreams, writing, and other misc.
Last night's CSI was a rerun, so I flipped over and watched Supernatural instead. I'd seen bits of episodes before, though never an entire one. Let me just say that I now completely understand why a majority of The Sentinel fans have dropped into this new fandom (and I'm not referring to the cuteness of Jared Padalecki or the hotness of Jensen Ackles).

I'm not sure I'm going to watch it again, though; it gave me the most bizarre dreams. I'm not sure if I was helping the Winchester brothers out on an investigation, or what, but there was much adventuring and a lot of weirdly symbolic stuff.

[At some point I was driving through an area that reminded me of West Hollywood, in narrow cramped streets, and made a wrong turn. I ended up in a dead-end alley with a small open-air market--but all the merchants were selling pot, and they seemed convinced that nobody would show up there unless they wanted to either buy or smoke it. I just wanted to get unlost and back to where I was supposed to meet up with my buddies.]

The strangest thing is that they were investigating Snape. Seriously. I remember going through a room that was supposed to be Snape's (while he was out, of course). Among other things, we found something like a psychic image, which showed us various symbols that represented things in Snape's heart (I remember a detailed image of a brain, and several others). And I found a greeting card, blank, with "Semper Fidelis" [direct translation: Always Faithful] written in one corner. I guess you all know what I think about Snape's loyalties now, huh? :-)

I know we have to post what we have on our Finishathon stories, today. I'm sad because I didn't get nearly enough done, but I shall post what I have. And I think I'll use this as my back-up NaNo story, in case I finish the other story and am still short of the word count.

Anybody else see the preview for next week's CSI? Kudos to them on not type-casting this particular actor, but I'm just not sure I want to see Alan Tudyk aka Wash playing a pedophile. Eeeep.

My NaNo novel came from a dream. Yours would be weird, but I've read weirder.

Oh! Hee. I see I wasn't clear; I mean I'll use my still-unfinished Finishathon story as my NaNo backup.

But writing one based off this dream could be...way too much fun. :-D The suggestion is appreciated.

*dashes off to check her flist in more detail*

Are you sure it's today? multific didn't post today. Or not yet anyway.

Will you injure me if I say I topped 16k words before getting sidetracked by VS stuff?

According to watervole, kerravonsen's computer has crashed, so either there'll be a bit of a wait, or someone will make a multific post in proxy. I shall work on my story at lunch; maybe I'll have more than one scene to post, lol.

Will you injure me if I say I topped 16k words before getting sidetracked by VS stuff?

No. :-) The VS is muy importante. Also, didn't you at least write 10,000 words on this one? Heck of a lot more than me anyway....

My bad. The 16k is 16,000 words, not bytes. *snicker*

I'm actually almost to 18,000 typed, but the newer stuff hasn't been betaed yet. BTW, are we permitted to link to the story, or does it have to be done in an LJ post (or two, or three)?

LOL, okay, 16,000 words makes a lot more sense. :-)

are we permitted to link to the story?

As far as I know, that would be fine. I think the idea is just that it needs to be online to be read.

Re: dream--Lawsy, chile'. After what you wrote to me, I'm all over analyzing that dream.

Snape was a Marine? *snicker*

Well, if you want to email me any analysis, I'd read it, you know. :-)

Snape was a Marine? *snicker*

In my dream, my first reaction was to translate the phrase.

My second one, still in the dream, was exactly what you said. :-)

Supernatural is awesome, and last night's was a particularly good episode.

So Tudyk's gonna be on CSI as a pedophile? I share your ambivalence. I love the guy, but... pedophile?

That's what it looks like. Not sure if he's actually a suspect--the bits in the preview reminded me of an ep of L&O:SVU, where the detectives didn't have enough evidence, so they treated the suspect like an expert on serial killing and asked him things like, "Why do you think the guy would have done thus-and-such?" in the hopes that he'd give himself away.

Good casting choice, though; Alan has one of those faces you'd never suspect of doing anything wrong.
