Oh, plot bunny, why must you torment me so?!

I think it's fairly common knowledge that I'm really not in SPN fandom any more. Haven't been in quite a while, "Heroes Rest" not withstanding. Which makes the current mash-up in my brain all the more exasperating.

At the moment, my TV is hooked up to a digital converter box. I get exactly two channels: CBS and RTV (Retro). Retro shows Route 66 reruns---for anyone who's not familiar with it, R66 is a series that debuted in 1960, and features two guys roaming the US in their muscle car. In this case, the car is a Corvette and the guys aren't brothers, but there is a fair amount of helping and/or saving people that goes on. In a lot of ways, it's SPN without the monsters.

Last night, I looked R66 up on Wikipedia, and discovered that in the final episode (NO, I'm NOT going to do a spoiler-cut for a 50-year old episode. Get over it.) Stiles gets married. To Barbara Eden. In Tampa.

The inner SPN fangirl, who still pops up once in a while, reminded me that Sam once alluded to some events Dean became embroiled in in Tampa (pre-series), and ba-boom, a plot bunny was hatched.

Like, what if Todd is still in the Tampa area? I'm thinking haunted fairgrounds, and the boys go undercover at a car show that's being held there. (I've actually been to the Tampa Fairgrounds, altho since I'm not actually planning to write the darn thing---!) But it makes perfect sense---Dean and the Impala wind up next to Todd, who still has the 'Vette. And they bond*, since they each inherited their cars from their dads (although John was still alive at that point in canon...still, it was his car first). And if Todd's wife pops by to bring him lunch or something, I can just imagine Dean commenting, maybe later to Sam, that she reminds him of the chick from "I Dream of Jeannie".

I don't remember the exact quote about Tampa, just that it seemed like Dean probably shouldn't go back there. So clearly, chaos ensues at some point during the hunt. Of course, if I really wanted to mash things up, I'd throw in a possessed Plymouth Fury...wait, I am NOT writing this!

Although maybe I should. God, it scares me to think of how old Martin Milner is getting to be....

0=0=0=0=0=0=0=0

*Another thing, Dean has the whole clean-cut crew cut thing going on, and I see Todd appreciating that, as compared to the "hairy hippie" look.

And y'know, considering how often Dean must have to get his hair trimmed to maintain that look, it's a wonder the FBI never posted his "Wanted" poster in any barber shops.

The C's live on a canal, and there are ducks living in their backyard. (There's a bin of cracked corn out in the garage. These are well-fed, happy ducks.) There are a family of IDK ducks---the adults are irridescent black with white and have red faces, and at the moment, they have four (that I've counted) fluffy little yellow and black ducklins---so cute! There's also what AI refers to as "the glee club", a flock of 20 or so basic brown mallards who drop in to cadge corn. At least, she says they're mallards.

It rained like hell early this afternoon, and made the bucks quite frisky. For a little while, a pair of little tan morming doves was splashing about in the ducks' water font. Quite a little wildlife sanctuary they've got going here. According to AI, there's also a manatee living in the canal by their dock, but I've not seen it.

I had hot dogs for lunch and watched "My Bloody Valentine 3D", although *not* in 3D. Lately, I've been entertaining thoughts of a crossover I started a million years ago between MBV3D and "DeVour". Jake Gray has been released from prison after serving 10 years for the murder of his girlfriend They couldn't pin his parents' deaths on him, but there's still hard feelings in town, so he's out at his uncle's cabin, which he inherited. He's surviving off the land, and keeping to himself, when a visitor arrives.

Harry Warden has been drifting around the country, dominating Tom Hanniger's consciousness at his own whims. He ran across a true crime book about the Jake Gray case, and was delighted at the potential mayhem inherent in someone who looks like himself/Tom. What he *doesn't* know is Tom's psychic abilities, which have sharpened in prison out of self-defense. Jake always knows who's who, and he forges a relationship with both Tom and Harry, hoping to find a way to free Tom once and for all.

The working title is "Identity Crisis", although "Tom, Jake and Harry" is a possible. Oh, and did I mention it's slash? Because Jensen Ackles times THREE is as hot as it gets. Some of it is fairly evil, since Harry is NOT a nice guy.

Wicked heartburn from the 'dogs. I may have a root beer float to calm my stomach....

Mwah-hah-ha-ha!

I just went spelunking amongst my beading drawers and containers, and it was an extremely satisfying experience. I've got plenty of heavy-gauge copper picture hanging wire for wrapping stones. I knew that going in. However, what I wanted/needed and thought I *didn't* have was lighter gauge stuff, which is good for adding beads to wrapped arrangements. I figured I'd be hitting up AI to see if she had any---these days, there isn't a craft store closer than Viera (10 miles, as opposed to right up the road at Byrd Plaza as was formerly the case), which makes finding supplies a bitch sometimes.*

I dug a box out of a drawer I hadn't been in in who nows how long, and found several spools of various sizes of copper, glory, glory Hallelujah! And of course, I went a little crazy digging out rocks---I couldn't wrap half of them if I was there for ten hours!---and my little crafter's tote now weighs about fifteen pounds. Although to be fair, at least six pounds of it can be attributed to the hammer and bar of tempered steel I use as an anvil. What? It's for flattening thick gauge wire for things like clasps.

Got an email from GK, who will be here solo next weekend. I'd be happier if I didn't know it's because of Kat's condition and the need to make arrangements. She arrives Saturday afternoon, departs Wednesday morning. Probably not a lot of fun and games in between, but I'll have funds next week, just in case.

Also kicked out chapter 1 of the crossover opus. (Working title: Identity Crisis.) This isn't exactly deathless prose; the total wordcount of both sections thus far is about 2200 words. But there's enough to establish the general mindfuckery that's going on, and if all goes well, maybe I can bridge the gap between chapters 1 and 4 within the next day or so. One thing experience has taught me, I don't do well when it comes to posting WIPs, so I need to get cracking, because I'd LIKE to start posting it on, what else?---Valentine's Day.

Now I really need to shower and wash my hair before bed, because if I wait until morning, it'll probably still be wet when I have to leave for church.

=====================================
* While it's good for a lot of things, I don't consider WalMart a "craft" store as such. I was there yesterday looking for wire---they didn't have it in any size, except for things like wired florist tape, which is NOT suitable.

I'm feeling exceedingly well fed. I got a piece of meat on mark-down yesterday, and this evening, I had it with a modest yellow onion and a carton of mushroom-caps, gently sauteed with the steak, rare. I get beef maybe twice a month (if I can find a good deal), and this was a very nice piece. *contented sigh*

I should probably do some more laundry, but at the moment, I'm still digesting. I should also get my stuff together for CUUPs tomorrow---AI is doing a workshop on wire-wrapping. Heaven knows, I'm familiar with the process, have my own tools, wire, etc.---and plenty of freaking rocks!---and I'm really looking forward to it! It's always more fun to craft in a group.

The other day, I sat down and knocked out a chunk of a crossover...this evening, I'm trying to work out another installment...what makes it tricky is, the bit I started with is probably something like chapter 4. It's a DeVour/My Bloody Valentine continuation, because who doesn't want twice as much Jensen Ackles? (Or three times, if you count Harry Warden....) It remains to be seen how much of a readership it has besides Kerttu!

There's also plenty of room for more discussion at How do YOU spell pr0n...?

Some anonymous joker over at [livejournal.com profile] yuletide needs to lighten up and maybe cut back on the caffeine. Okay, so maybe Leverage isn't technically a rare fandom anymore. Geez! Can I interest you in some Secondhand Lions?! Yes, I am going to participate again this year! Last year was a blast, up to and including my last-minute stocking stuffer.

Woohoo! [livejournal.com profile] crack_impala has recced A Feast for Two at the Turquoise Dragon. Apparently there are A LOT of fangirls who want to read Sam and Castiel interacting over Chinese food---who knew?! (It just makes the reaction---or lack thereof! to Iron and Faith all the more discouraging. That one was EPIC, darn it!)

This afternoon I got my assignment for the Crossover Exchange, and *that* has me grinning and licking my lips. I volunteered to write in any two of five fandoms (and gave them eight fandoms of my choice to write for). My recipient has six requests, three of which I volunteered, another that I HAVE written in but didn't volunteer, and the remaining two are fandoms I know only from a distance. The minimum length is ONLY 1500 words, which for me---hell, my post about the wedding weekend was longer than that!

The three requests I matched? Are ALL fandoms I requested, too. Shazam! I've already been thinking about scenarios. My recipient doesn't ask for any pairings that make me queasy---some of them are triggering my smirk---there are a few possibilities among their prompts...the *only* thing that marginally annoys me is that he/she has vetoed a specific genre I'm good at---but I'm sure I can find other options.

My fic for COME AS YOU'RE NOT: 2009 is done already, giving me even more of my ample free time to spend on the exchange fic.... This is going to be fun. Yes, it is.

Of course, if I wanted to be REALLY crazy/masochistic, I'd take on NaNoWriMo too---but I don't think I'm *quite* that manic.

Oh God, that hurts...kicked squarely between the eyes by a crack-fueled plot bunny. There's such an air of mystery behind Sophie's origins in Leverage. Then, all of a sudden, as I was browsing [livejournal.com profile] yuletide's brainstorming post, something spontaneously popped up. What if Sophie was REALLY Casey Brown from Candleshoe, all grown up? (What? Just because there's no way in hell Jodie Foster would grow up to be Gina Bellman is no reason to ignore a perfectly glorious crossover.) I'm thinking in terms of the character, anyway, not the actresses. Because Casey has been a grifter since she was a toddler, practically, and what if that oh-so-posh British accent of Sophie's was acquired to cover up the flat Yankee accent Casey had when she was a kid? What if the crew wound up in England, and Nate said, "Let's go steal a castle!"---and they wind up at Candleshoe?

Arrrgh! I'm waiting for my multi-fandom crossover exchange assignment, I SO do not have time for this.

Show of hands, please, y'all---how many of you are into Leverage?

I've reposted a couple things at [livejournal.com profile] sn_crossovers, because I wasn't familiar with it when I originally wrote them.

There's Bad Fairy (http://vanillafluffy.livejournal.com/122443.html), my three-way with House MD, Supernatural and The Burning Zone, first posted 10/31/06, and The Jersey Devil (http://vanillafluffy.livejournal.com/180257.html), which crosses SPN with Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels, posted 4/1/07.

Feel free to ignore if you've already seen them. This is just me being a comment whore and trying to maximize exposure.

Carry on!

Yesterday went surprisingly well. Didn't have to drive through any nasty weather, got my banking taken care of (Really, I DO need to get the paperwork in for direct deposit!), had pretty good sales numbers (even with the giant order where the card wouldn't go through). Picked up a 'zine for short hairstyles and dog-earred a few pix. Next pay period, it's going to happen---!

Work on the crossover has been intermittant this week. I have a good idea of the next couple of scenes, but I'm having trouble with time to write...and motivation. I have this lengthy idea for an epic, but hello?! IS there an audience for a SPN AU Season 4 crossover with DeVour, or should I find something else to work on? (It's not like I don't have a shitload of other bunnies I could be writing.)

Thanks for your feedback

I borrowed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows from a gal at church, and spent a sizable chunk of the afternoon and evening feasting on it. I'm quite pleased that I was mostly right about my guesses. I was wrong on one point---they didn't have to break into Azkaban for the first Horcrux---and there was one thing I expected that didn't happen: I was quite certain that Harry would learn to be an Animagus---but other than that---!

Yes, [livejournal.com profile] kukkurkurat, I can see how your diabolical leanings could be inventively stimulated, under the circumstances. Lots of hurt-comfort potential!

The epilogue screws up my Draco/Neville 'verse, not that it was even canon to begin with. (Oh, well, it's already AU.)

I've also been hammering away on our crossover. Got a few scribbled pages done yesterday at work---which translates to paragraphs on the screen---but I've got the next few scenes in mind. How to weave the canon plot-points together has me nonplused. (It's AU! Yeah, that'll work....)

Tomorrow I definitely need to cook up something from the freezer so I'll have meals for work this week. Hmm, off to take inventory....

I can punt the little bunnies out from underfoot with no trouble. It's these big, mean hybrid sons-of-bitches that take me down hard. This particular crossover popped onto radar yesterday, and it has the most evil grin I've seen on a bunny in quite a while.

Somebody made a Janet Evanovich reference in a SPN ficlet (http://raconter.livejournal.com/10186.html), and I got bunny-bitch slapped. The nice thing about it is, it wouldn't be nearly as much of a stretch as crossing it with House, and I'm sure it would be amusing. And scorching hot, if I can figure out a way to get Stephanie into a three-way with Ranger and Dean. Maybe with this one, I could do what I wanted to do with Bad Fairy (but didn't quite suceed)--namely, have two interlinking stories that can post in the different fandoms and draw in readers from both sides.

I've written for both fandoms, and they were both pretty well received. My mind is just boggling at the thought of combining the two, although after writing Bad Fairy** (http://vanillafluffy.livejournal.com/122443.html), my definition of what constitutes true crack has been completely redefined.

Maybe it's a GOOD thing I missed Yuletide sign-up....
