matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (Diary)
It often seems I don't get as many fics posted as I would like to, due to being indisposed somehow or other. Several of these are longer than usual, and thus took longer to type than I wanted, but I still managed to get eight fics done:

Just back from a short trip to Lowell, for an appointment with my therapist, and to take care of some bank business. Also had my lunch at Dunkin Donuts: tried their new apple cider -- iced, as it was little warm to have it hot. Tasty! But I have feeling it tastes better when it's warm.

Still getting the hang of the iPad: I think the hardest part is figuring out how to hold it. Hold it in one hand and type on it with the other? Lay it in my lap and type on it two hands? If there's more spelling gaffes than usual, this is part of it. For some reason, this is causing me to type slower and make more mistakes. Plus, the spell check on Safari seems a little more sensitive than the one on FireFox.

Started watching the chunk of Supernatural season five that I missed last year (read most of it), and so far, I think "Changing Channels" is my favorite of thus season. Of course, I love anything involving the Trickster: he's a great comedic foil to the Winchester Brothers. And the Big Reveal involving said Trickster seemed less jump-the-shark than I thought it was, from just hearing about it (I won't go into detail, at the risk of spoilers): I guess it's a case of an idea being Better Than It Sounds.

Author's Note: Written for [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic's "Supernatural, any, Salem Witch Trials" and featuring Dean & Sam, with a mention of Castiel

Dedicating this to the folks at History Alive! in Salem, Massachusetts, particularly the bunch who perform "Cry Innocent", the interactive re-enactment of the trial of Bridget Bishop, first person to be tried, convicted and hanged during the Witch Hysteria at Salem, in 1692. Note: Hannah Jones is the name of an ancestor of mine, who lived through the Witch Hysteria; I've yet to find out if she was actually involved in it somehow)

matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (SPN Castiel)
The main reason is because yesterday was Ascension Thursday and I ended up going to the later Mass at Mary Immaculate in Newton, with my folks; I had every intention of going to the earlier Mass at St. Joe's in Lowell, but I woke up too late to catch the bus, due to not feeling well since I'd had a rather nasty allergic reaction to some hair remover that I'd used. I've missed most of this season anyway, due to deciding to stop watching it on our TV because of A Family Member Who Will Remain Unidentified grumbling when I had it on. I can deal with people asking questions, but a constant mantra of "this is stupid... this is stupid... this is stupid..." got to be more than I can take. I can deal with people not liking things that I do, but if they are sharing airspace with me and they are slamming it when I am trying to watch it, or if they start slamming it in front of me when I am trying to talk about what I like about it, that is a major dealbreaker for me.

Thus I'm avoiding spoilery entries on folks' LJs and waiting for the DVDs to come out (which likely won't be till September).

Private-filtered post full of grumbling aside, I forgot to link this here last week:

Written for a prompt on [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic: Yami no Matsuei/Supernatural, Tsuzuki & Hisoka/Dean & Sam, "So let me get this straight. You're not a Reaper, you're a what exactly?"

NOTE: Contains some internal snarking about certain proclivities (I don't see Dean as a flat out homophobe, but per his tendency to be a jerk, I can see him being a little critical towards GLBT folks, so same would apply to his reaction to a pair of Dead Bi Detectives). Set during Season 3, when Dean was trying to dodge going to hell (and likely set during the winter hiatus due to the Writer's Strike; not that said hiatus caused a lacunae in the continuity, but it would be neat to know what happened to the Winchester Brothers during that gap of two months).

( "So you're like some kind of undead homicide detectives?" Sam asked. )

matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (Cal and Niko Leandros)
Quiet day of housework and trying to write today (and having a bit too much fun with [livejournal.com profile] carpe_ho_ras, the multi-fandom craziness RPG I've recently joined: you might have Tolkien elves chattering with Japanese death gods or characters from "The Scarlet Pimpernel" rubbing elbows with characters from George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire"). But yesterday, I had a few adventures in book-buying.

I've been making good use of the Store Pick Up option on the Barnes & Noble website, but that isn't without it's tricky moments: I'd earmarked a copy of the new Supernatural novel, "Heart of the Dragon", along with two other books (Trinity Blood vol. 6 and George R.R. Martin's "A Storm of Swords"), and when I got there, they had the Trinity Blood and the Martin book all nice and ready for me, but the SPN book was nowhere to be found, even though the slip for it was there. So the clerk called the sci-fi department to see what was going on; meanwhile, the woman in line behind me starts muttering about the line being held up, so one of the managers opens the next register. The clerk who was helping me apologized very profusely, and I told her about the glitch I'd had with my eye appointment at LensCrafters a month ago, then added that I've seen so much bad behavior where I work that I made a promise to myself to try and "not be That Customer". Out of the corner of my eye, I thought I saw the grumbler wince a little. Well, needless to say, they found another copy of the missing book for me.

Also got:

--"Roadkill", the next Cal Leandros book, looks like there's a new POV character coming into the story, which should mix things up marvelously. And

--the latest issue of Supernatural magazine (featuring an interview with Richard Speight, jr., the guy who plays the Trickster -- whom I honestly think is a hottie in a cute, cuddly, just-pudgy-enough sort of way)
matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (Morrigan)
The thought crossed my mind: what does one call a group of death gods? I used the phrase "bevy of shinigami" in an earlier entry, and it started to bug me what the proper term would be? (Yes, I obsess over things like this: it's more interesting than obsessing over bills or my alleged lack of a "love life", which I actually have, it's just not a romantic one). The phrase "a scything of reapers" came to mind, but this would likely apply best to western pyschopomps (even though the Japanese pop-culture image of the shinigami is actually borrowed from the western notion of "the Grim Reaper": the word "shinigami" apparently wasn't coined until sometime in the Meiji period). I'm still stuck as to what to call a bunch of their eastern cousins.

Another thing occurred to me, something that has popped up in a couple series featuring pyschopomps: someone mind-controlling a psychopomp. It happened in an episode of Supernatural, where Tessa the Reaper was briefly possessed, and it happens in an episode of Bleach, when one of the Bounts mind-controls one little Soul Reaper. This bugs me to no end: if something is the personification of that cosmic dynamic which indicates the cessation of life or at least a dramatic and unalterable change in how one's existence is experienced, doesn't that mean they're considerably more powerful and thus outside of being controlled by something lesser? I can go with a pyschopomp being physically restrained (the Aleister Crowley-wannabe in the first volume of the Sandman Comics tries to pull this off, and it happens a few times in Yami no Matsuei), but someone hijacking the volition of a psychopomp is likely worse than having a terrorist get their hands on a nuclear missile silo. I mean, think about that for a moment: you have a creature that can end life (however one defines that ending); I would think there is some cosmic law that prevents this from happening, in case someone goes completely Omnicidal. If you think of life in the eastern sense, ie. that everything has a spark of life in it, from humans down to the tiniest stones, can you imagine the devastation that could be caused? We're not just talking about end of the world as we know it, it could be the heat death of the universe if you had someone angry enough and destructive enough controlling said psychopomp(s). It also defines God-Moding. Which we know I despise. I guess what I'm saying is, my Willing Suspension of Disbelief stops at the idea of a mind-controlled psychopomp, since there's some major teleological High Octane Nightmare Fuel involved.

Also managed to scribble down the last of the [livejournal.com profile] centi_50 fics, though none of those will go live until after I've finished the 12 Fanfic Roses challenge. So expect a torrent of those once I finish showering you with roses (though if I don't get cracking with those, you're likely to see me dump the basket upside down over your heads, which may not be good for the Friends list).

Hm. Now I'm curious: there's two YnM crossovers which I wonder if they've been done. One with The Sandman Comics specifically the Death comics (since Death would probably glom on Hisoka and/or Tsuzuki big time: there's a creepy one featuring the Corinthian and his possible involvement with Muraki's glass eye) and one with "Dead Like Me" (though if George and Hisoka got together, they'd likely annoy the crap out of each other, since they're both snarky and a bit diffident; I imagine Mason and Tsuzuki would be the best of buddies, but I wonder how Rube and Tatsumi would get along since they're both rather meticulous). Off to go a-searching!!
