laialda: (Analyze/Writing)
Admittedly it's not much so far. Just about a page of actual story- but that more than I've been able to do in HOW MANY MONTHS NOW?!

I started with NNW to get momentum before jumping back into CAC. Not to mention I need to do a reread so I can make sure the new chapter will flow well from the old one and refresh my memory while I'm at it. I won't post a spoiler preview for that (it could jinx things after all) but I will post the little write up I got for another scene for my Doctor Who! Crack piece. Not even gonna lie, it's probably the first scene I've had the idea for that actually made ME laugh as I was typing the summary. Good times you guys. Good times. ^_^

It was late in the evening and the Doctor was sitting at the kitchen table. Head and shoulders hunched inward as he wrote on the sheaf of paper before him. With a flourish of his fountain pen on the last word, the Doctor sat up and relaxed properly into his chair, a wistful smile on his face.

(Master comes over, peering over his shoulder and asks what the Doctor is doing. The Doctor tries to hide it, claiming they're episode rough drafts, but the Master grabs it, citing his need as a staff writer to see what he's got in mind, before loudly exclaiming that the Doctor was writing poetry. Love Poetry. In Gallifreyan. Badly. The Master dips and dodges the Doctor's attempts to get the paper back while the Master reads aloud:

Forever she shall be my star.
Though once I held her near,
Now she must guide me from afar.

He makes fun of the horrible rhyme and words choices. The Doctor claims he's translating to English on purpose just to make it sound terrible. Gleeful, the Master leads them outside where Romana is sitting and reading, (human slow) so to try and embarrass the Doctor further by showing her.

Romana listens to a few lines as he reads but doesn't show much reaction other than to look away from her book. When the Master stops, smiling broadly, she takes a second and then smirks at him while the Doctor snatches back his poetry. Romana teases the Master of being envious of the Doctor's ability to write emo poetry as he's never felt love like that, a fact she already knew of course, and that he should go away so she can read. The Doctor preens before realizing what Romana said about his poetry and goes off, muttering and smoothing out his now crumpled paper. The Master tries to claim their human relationship while they'd been fob watched was real, and Romana claims that if he really felt that way then he would be able to produce poetry of the same caliber for her, now wouldn't he?

Determined to prove her wrong, the Master pulls up a chair across from the Doctor – now back at the dinning room table – and swipes one of the sheets of paper before hunching over to write his own poetry. Pausing for a moment to ask the Doctor's opinion on having a rhyme about her idiocy, to which he claims that he'd rather want to go the other direction with a love poem. The Master just takes this as further proof that he doesn't know anything about true Gallifreyan poetry and keeps the verse...until he sees the Doctor has gone back to his own writing, as he then takes the moment to scratch out the verse.)

Title: New New Wonderland - Prologue
Genre: Action/Adventure, Romance, Gen., Crossover: Doctor Who/Alice, 2009
Main Characters: Ten/Rose, Martha, The Queen of Hearts, Hatter/Alice
Rating: Teen/PG13
Word Count: ~3,100
Parallel worlds come into existence almost every second of every day. Each decision you make creates a parallel existence, a different dimension where things end up almost the same or...evolve into something completely different. New Earth AU from S3

Notes: This is the beginnings of a (possibly) lengthy AU crossover piece with Doctor Who and Alice in Wonderland. Specifically the version of the world from the 2009 movie called Alice. Knowledge of the movie will not be required to read/understand my little adventure here...but a quick wikipedia look up may help give you better visuals and hints about those characters in the story.

Should be a bit of fun involving science, 'magic', action, adventure, messing with timelines, and if the characters play their cards right...a reunion.

Prologue: A Change in the Ebb )
laialda: (filler)
So flisters, you may or may not have noticed a lack of any activity from me from about...mid November. The main reason for that being my friend and I were last minute confirmed for a table at the gaming convention Magfest. This of course meant the 5 months I originally had to make my little dolls suddenly became 1.5 and i had to crochet and sew like a mad woman.

All the work paid off in the end though as my friend and I had a kick ass time at the con and each made over 1k selling our geeky crafts. :D We were also interviewed! So if you'd like to see a tired Saturday morning me takling about my stuff then just click on the link here.

The most surprising thing for me at the con was just how popular Doctor Who was with gamers. I sold my 11th Doctor, 10th Doctor, 10th Doctor in Blue, Cyberman, and a plush TARDIS. Only poor Rose didn't sell :( Though I gave out lots of business cards to people anxious to see what new Doctor Who dolls I would make, so that's exciting as I love new friends/stalkers. ^_^

Two girls also made my weekend by knowing who/where my Hatter doll was from and we gushed over Mr. Potts for a good few minutes. :D

This was my first convention where I've been able to talk to people who are buying my dolls and it was really great to see how many people like my little creations, and talk to them about them. As such, I do have about 5 doll commissions to make before I can get started on new ones for my next convention in April (A comic con so lots of superhero dolls coming this way soon), but before then I want to churn out some new chapters for Curious and Curiouser. Poor chapter 11 has been in my head since June and I'd like to reward my faithful readers by writing up maybe another 4-5 chapters to post over the next 2 months so that while I'm working on dolls and things I don't have to worry about trying to write at the same time.

I'd also like to get some chapters written for my DW/Alice crossover New New Wonderland as I really want to get to the second arc as I've FINALLY over the last few months started to figure out how I'd change the plot of Alice. :)

Well, I've got one gaming onesie commission down and one to go before starting my dolls, but I'll be around the interwebs while I work so you should start seeing me around more. ^_^

So...Nanowrimo...was too depressed to try it last year and my schedule has just cleared up time wise so I'm thinking I may take a crack at it. Though, not the starting a new story part (I really do not need a new plot to work on thanks) but just writing 50k words in a month. So my plans for it are this:

~8k to finish up 'Living the High Life' which, with luck, Part 4 will be done today
~30-40k for another 3-4 chapters of 'Curiouser and Curiouser' and possibly a 'Moments of Lucidity' piece
Remainder to be used for whatever strikes my fancy for already established works (like Complicated and New Wonderland) or as drabbles/one-shots.

Seeing how much of Tumbling I churned out back when I started it, I think it's a very realistic/achievable goal to aim for. No doubt CaC readers will be happy to know I'm not dead. *hangs head in shame* Means I'll be taking a rather large break from crafting for the month, but I'm considering it research time to see who/what I need to make things for for Christmas.

On an off topic Doctor Who related note: got into a conversation with my sister about Doctor Who companions and - being much more into fashion than I ever will be - she informed me of the fact that the look Rose sports (roots showing and wearing heavily applied mascara) was actually a fashion style for a few years. So, there you go people. She didn't always need to dye her hair, she actually kept it that way on purpose. Makes sense when you look at the shift in her look after spending 3 years in Pete's World (no roots, very light make up, and a bit nicer clothing). Kind of makes me want to write a drabble for that conversation between her and TenII about her change in style.

Well, off to try and finish this chapter. *cracks knuckles*
laialda: (Thoughtful)
It's true. I never stop thiking about the fics I'm working on but, with a few exceptions, I usually don't feel like writing. Doubly so since my best friend moved out in June and I never get time alone to write (except for sitting on my bed in my room which is quite uncomfortable really). Combined with wedding planning/immigration paper work and crafting to sell tihngs at cons and you get a big lump of no time online.

Since hopping back into HP fics though and being just disgusted at what's popular right now (*gasp* your fic has Weasley and Dumbledore bashing to the extreme and Harry has a harem!!? That sounds so completely original! *rolls eyes with heavy amounts of sarcasm*) it has kicked my desire to write something decent back into the forefront on my mind. So this is where I stand on things:
  • Harry Potter/Alice Crossover 'Curious and Curious' - Chapter 11 now has a title to go with it's outline, along with many small notes in my head that I may or may not remember while I write. Hatter and Alice will be getting seperate scoldings and may have their talk before it ends, depends on how long the piece is already running.
  • Doctor Who/Alice Crossover 'New New Wonderland' - Chapter 2 has been sitting with about 2 pages typed into the first scene since June and I feel quite guilty about it. I've fallen into the trap of actually plotting everything out in detail and now have little drive to work on this crossover/ Doctor&Rose reunion fic as I know what happens. *sigh* Really would like to work on it some as it would be a very serious piece and I think my idea is a unquie one.

I have a week until my next convention so I do need to work on finishing the things I need for that (5 dolls, 4 hacky-sacks, bottlecaps and wands) but I think I'll try to do some writing tonight and see what comes of it. :)

Also, side note, after sepending some more time on LJ I think I'm going to put my fiction up on my journal here as well in the near by future. Thinking about back dating it if I do so I don't clog up those very few people who have me on their f-list. Plus it would let me make pretty banners for my stories and as an artist this appeals to me greatly. XD
