meddow: Laura Roslin (Roslin)
I've been working on this fic for the [community profile] femgenficathon and I've gotten over my fear of writing in a new fandom, got most of the characters and tone right and pulled it back from being too talky (all my fics seem to start off with way too much dialog and I have to cut tonnes of it out). But somewhere along the way, it stopped being gen. Well, it's borderline, but since I'm pretty conservative in my definition of gen, I wouldn't be comfortable with it classifying it as such. It's not a problem, I can just post it outside of the ficathon, it's just amusing to me that it happened. I blame BSG and the insane level of UST between the political elite on the show and the love dodecahedrons.

Also: the trailer for The Lovely Bones has come out. To be honest, I haven't read the book, but I'm all kinds of excited because of the Peter Jackson factor. While I love the Lord of the Rings movies and thought King Kong was great, I actually think Peter Jackson is at his best mixing fantasy with period suburbia, like he did in Braindead, Heavenly Creatures and The Fighteners, and I'm really excited to see him return to that kind of film making.

And because I'm bored and coz I love making numbered lists:

Ask me my fannish Top Five [Whatevers]. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really. And I will answer them all in a new post.
