Just hopped onto the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic bandwagon that has been joyriding about the Internet.

MLP was a *huge* part of my childhood: I collected the unicorn ponies from the time they first came out (though I have a few of the first series of first-gen ponies). Even watched the cartoon series when I was... nine? ten? I don't remember it much, except, in retrospect, the baddies left a bigger impression on my young mind than the good guys (ie. the Ponies themselves), whom I probably be relegating to the Mary Sue (Marey Sue??) pile if I watched it now.

But! I am very impressed with the reboot: I love the backstory, and I love the Ponies themselves. Twilight Sparkle has quickly become one of my favorite geek-girl characters. And there have been several Hey, It's That Voice moments: Twilight Sparkle sounds oddly like Utena Tenjou in the dub of the anime, and the tough-girl Griffon in the fourth ep turns out to share a VA with...Revy from Black Lagoon. That was a bit blink-inducing.

I am also delighted to hear the bit of Kripked fanon involving one brown male pony with an hourglass cutie-mark: he's been dubbed by the fans and now by the producers as "Doctor Whooves". Of course that lead me to imagine a pony-fied version of a certain ex-Time Agent, whom I lovingly call "Jack Harkneighss". I may punt the dear onto an emerging LJ RP called [livejournal.com profile] bridlewood_rp. Didn't take a whole lot of juggling to make his background a bit more family-friendly, though I decided to err on the side of caution about his, ah, proclivities: now he's just really friendly and charming to everyone, no romantic or fleshly interest involved. Also, he's unable to "pass into the Great Pasture Beyond" (my pony-fied and less painful way of describing death), thanks to what "Rosepony Tyler" pulled off during the battle in "Stablelite 5" where they faced off the "Dalequines" -- think giant metal chess Knights (the kind with the horse head on top) instead of giant salt shakers; the jury is out on whether or not they chant "EX-TER-MI-NATE. EX-TER-MI-NATE. EX-TER-MI-NATE."

There is also the temptation to take my *least* innocent, never mind furthest from G-rated headspace dweller and toss him into the mix. Because the dark side of Equestria (which is a much cooler name than "Ponyland" ever was) could use a ..."Kazutaka Mareraki".

Wish I could put it together better, as it was pretty broken up, but I had my first fan-dream based in the Who-niverse last night.

Which is pretty much how it's been this week, when I wasn't busy with errands or burning the midnight oil getting the last pages typed of the infamous [livejournal.com profile] vampirebigbang fic. The corrections/additions for that ended up amounting to twenty extra pages that I had to type. At least it came out in one piece, so I didn't have to go mad trying to figure out where it fit in. I might polish it a bit more and there's a cut scene I might add later, when-if I post it to AO3. The fic master post doesn't go up till sometime in the beginning of October: I'll post something either here or on [livejournal.com profile] mtxref_fic when it goes live.

Also, my allergies have been bothering me off and on, so I've had trouble sleeping. This has made my nights a bit weird: I've been up late reading or trying to jot short fic for either [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic or "fic_promptly" on Dreamwidth. I need to get better about typing up things, since they're rather piling up: I've officially retired one of the bound, physical journals I use to draft things. A lot of the time, I draft things longhand: it gives the creative process a bit more of an organic feel to it. Sometimes, I can create a fic on the fly and type it up in one sitting, but not always. Plus, I like to write in odd places, ie. having lunch in a coffee shop or on the bus or during lulls at work.

Been watching a few TV shows marathon style: I mainlined "Castle" all the week before last, preparing for the season premiere. Then this past week, I was watching "White Collar", which is fabulous: it's like seeing a series based on "Catch Me If You Can". Now watching "Doctor Who Confidential", which is a whole lot of fun.

Spent the afternoon at the library, copy-pasting the text of the [livejournal.com profile] vampirebigbang fic together. I also printed out the text, which gives me a chance to read it and figure out where it needs to be polished and holes that need to be patched up. Surprisingly, there aren't as many as I had feared, and I should be able to fix the fic up well before the deadline on the 23rd. I might even be able to get it sent to the mods by the end of the week: I'm scheduled to work tomorrow and then I have a dental appointment on Thursday, but that still leaves me with plenty of time to work on fixing the fic. I decided to go with the notion that it's supposed to be an unfinished draft of His Paleness's memoirs, which should explain the at-times half-polished aspects of some of the text.

Then it's the matter of working on the Mpreg Big Bang I signed up for. I almost changed my mind and considered a Torchwood fic, riffing from Jack's off-handed remark in the pilot episode, but the headspace version objected to this very loudly. That and the YnM fic I have in mind is already half-written, it's just a matter of typing it up and writing the rest.

Jack ain't off the hook though: I spotted two Mpreg prompts on [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic that need filling... >.> <.< Thus he's been over on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun, bitching about it.
