On the Distant Horizon

Reaction to "Mirror, Mirror"

Last night, I watched the Star Trek episode "Mirror, Mirror". Almost immediately afterward, I sent my reaction to therageofstone via Facebook.

This is that message, preserved for posterity. Enjoy!

(Note: the Uhura thing is an inside joke and references this post, which is HILARIOUS [for both the Star Trek stuff and the fact that the song itself is a parody of the rap genre] and INAPPROPRIATE if you do not want the F-bomb blasting out of your speakers. You have been warned!)

Last Fic Writer Standing

This is a pimping post! Yay! My first ever! And it might be read by all of three people!

Anyways:

sgahcchallenges has been hosting a Last Fic Writer Standing contest for some time now. I've entered, and I think it's pretty much one of the coolest writing challenges I've ever seen. It's rather Survivor-esque, in that writers anonymously submit their stories each round (according to that round's specific prompt), and after the voting closes, there are first, second and third place winners - and the authors of the two stories with the lowest scores are out of the contest.

It's too late to enter, of course, but you can still vote. In fact, voting for Round #5 is open now (vote here). One of the reasons I like the contest so much is because the votes are anonymous, which means I'm actually getting honest, critical feedback on my work, for which I'm grateful (even if it's negative!).

The rules post is here, and a guide to providing constructive criticism when voting is here (though it is not mandatory).

So go check it out!

Oh, and here are links to my first four entries, which have gotten me this far: Lovesick (No, Really), Don't Tell Mama, In A Minute, and Holding On. Let me know what you think, if you are so inclined . . . :-)

Yeah . . .

Okay, since I have no idea what I'm doing here, I'm not even going to bother updating unless I feel the strange need to post a fic or a vid or something.

So this LJ account is only for me to use if I want to comment on someone else's journal. If you're here for any reason . . . um, sorry? Feel free to contact me if you really want.

Oh no, it's a noobie . . .

Um, okay. Hi! *waves*

I am painfully new to the whole livejournal experience. And I mean *painfully*. Well, mostly for me, as I'm afraid I'll mess up and embarrass myself in front of everyone - but who am I kidding? Who's really gonna read this?

Having said that, obviously *you're* here, so, uh . . . sorry, didn't mean to insult you or anything. But I think it's clear that I could use some LJ advice as to how things work around here.

Let's see, what can I tell you about me . . . I'm here at LJ because of Stargate: Atlantis and the whole fanfiction phenomenon associated with that - I really love whumping. If you don't know what whumping is, it's probably best that way.

Okay, so I'm gonna go tool around on the site a bit more, see if I can figure more stuff out.

Et voila, another noobie slips quietly into the shadows . . .
