Nano

<--- Look at my icon...it's a bit more advanced than the usual ones I make. Which you probably can't tell, actually, but never mind. I was playing around with Ultimate Paint the other night, which was very frustrating for a while, but I think I've just about got the hang of it. I wish someone would make truly intuitive graphics programme.

Been thinking about Nano - I'm never, ever going to do it if I have to come up with characters and plot and a style all by myself, because that's not really my forte. I'm much better at mimicking ta one and character, which is why I'm good at editing subtitles - I can keep the tone of the programme. (Not that we have to edit much any more, since they changed the reading speed guidelines.) So, I'm gonna do fanfic. Which I'm slightly embarrassed about, but it's the only way I've got any chance of actually winning the damn thing. If I do it, maybe next year I'll progress to something original!

I'm sure a billion people have done this already, but I haven't read any of them, and I'm not going to now in case I steal bits - Doctor Who/ Firefly crossover fic. Because the more I thought about it the more it made me squee. I'm doing Nine/Rose/Jack era of Who, TARDISing into the Firefly 'verse sometime after Ariel but before Serenity. I think the character interaction would be really interesting - Nine would be absolutely fascinated by River, and I think if I let Mal and Jack plot together the world might seriously regret it.

I've got a very basic plot, which is all I need to start with. I've even managed to include Mr Universe. So bring it on!

No! I'll see if it's on Listen Again, but not till after Torchwood tonight because so far I'm almost completely unspoiled!

Aww, I was gonna suggest you write the story of Tinkerbell before
she met Peter Pan and the Lost Boys.You could call it 'Tink' and
start out in the magical land of pixies and then go on to explain
how she decided to rescue human orphans(the lost boys) and then
Peter.
On second thought, your idea sounds better. :)

Heh! That sounds quite a cool idea too, actually.

Do Flog It Fanfic.

Paul looked up from his corner, his eyes brimming like a slo-mo sunrise. The warmth that had started, ticklish, red, in his arm slowly arced through his whole body, a crescent of light releasing him downwards into himself. His slavering lips unbit the leather cord that had held him together and his arms went limp. Now he was ready once more, prepared to take on the mantle upon awaking.

Exactly 12 hours to the second, from his lips fell "That's lovely. And what are you gonna do with the money?"; his mind raced with images he'd caught while down in that visceral ditch the previous evening; he knew he was king of the TV and no fucker could take that from his rigid hands."


For example.

Bastard. That's going to be IN MY HEAD now, and you know they're going to make me do Flog It all week.

I think it might be slightly too well written for fanfic, though.
