sunday nights kind of suck.  
I wish I could love Sunday nights. You can only really love them, I think, if you know that Monday is going to be a glorious, carefree day when you don't have to work and someone is going to buy you a pony.

My weekend has partially sucked and partially not sucked. The not-sucking part largely has to do with watching Alias with sherrold. I want to do a whole long post about that, but I don't have the vim at the moment. That's unrelated to the show; that's just me. I'm blah right now and wish I wasn't. I'm behind on accomplishing things I need to do.

And on the whole I really don't have a lot else to say here.

For those of you following the obsession, a poll. Note, you can choose more than one, though if you choose all of them I'll of course just be back where I started and have no way to decide what to do next.

Poll #507146 next J/V story

What type of laughably cliched J/V story should I write next?

Vaughn goes rogue! We don't know why.
8(11.6%)
Vaughn is, somehow against all that is right and natural, a hustler.
9(13.0%)
Deep cover and very, very gay.
17(24.6%)
There's an OMC, homophobia, Jack is protective, and you know it's J/V, right?
5(7.2%)
Something else to be mentioned in comments.
1(1.4%)

(OMC = Original Male Character)

I am still just playing and scribbling, because thoughts on a longer more ambitious writing project haven't cohered. I'm just letting those thoughts drift around. After watching the last several episodes of S4, I immediately felt the urge to take all the amazing characters and give them a thorough, dignified, serious treatment that respects all their depths and facets and canonical interrelationships. And then I blocked that from my mind and wrote porn, for many reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture.

I think I may need some kind of cake or muffin or something.

Um, what's OMC?

And is he really a hustler, or is he undercover as one. 'cause I can buy the second (well, not really, but as much as I can buy Vaughn punk, no matter how pretty he is in eyeliner) but not the first. Vartan is kind of stuck in certain roles in my head.

OMC = original male character (I added that as a note, because that's probably a good idea. :) The implication ususally is that the OMC will be paired with a canonical character. For example, Sydney/OMC.

Hustler, mmm, the answer is...yes! I have no better answer than that quiet yet. Sorry!

Vartan, my god, is so fucking hot in the sweep of episodes closing out season four that I just watched. Whenever he was on the screen I just gaped and made tiny mewling sounds.
Anna S.: jack-bristoweliade on June 6th, 2005 04:36 am (UTC)
Er, *quite* yet. Not quiet yet. I'm not quiet yet! I am tired though, and I sigh.
abbyleeabbylee on June 6th, 2005 04:49 am (UTC)
Ah. Oddly enough, I recognize OC, but the M threw me.

Vartan is hot. Absolutely no argument there; I've loved the look of the man ever since he showed up on screen. However, I've yet to figure out whether he always looks so out of place when he's dressed up because Vartan can't blend, or because he's in character and Vaughn can't blend. Either way, I'm mean and can't see Vaughn as a huster. Which doesn't mean I won't read it and love it and say "oh my god, I see it!"

I know I'm in the minority but hustler dammit... That would be so cute and hot and WTF all at the same time. Seriously I think you could hit all the buttons of the J/V kink with that one. Particularly if you worked in the fact that Jack used to seduce gay male marks for the CIA. Garber was quite the hotty when he was a kid. Not that he isn't now of course but I mean by traditional standards Godpell era Garber was hawt as hell. Maybe Vaughn made his way through college hustling and now due to some awful trauma has reverted to his old ways. Or something.
gianna24gianna24 on June 6th, 2005 04:44 am (UTC)
Or maybe like he used to be a for real hustler, which no one knows, and then he goes undercover as a hustler and Jack notices that he gets the patter right. Sorry, I'm just fascinated by this idea.

I think you need a ticking timebomb story, although I'm not sure whether I mean literal or figurative.

Monday, bleargh. Only good thing about it is that the noisiest corresidents are gone for most of it.

Julia, screw reality, I'm going to bed
Anna S.: kandinskyeliade on June 6th, 2005 04:44 am (UTC)
Hmm. So if figurative, do you mean that someone is like the Manchurian Candidate, or that Jack is primed to kick some serious ass, or...? :)
julia_herejulia_here on June 6th, 2005 05:26 am (UTC)
Manchurian Candidate would work for that, yes, although I was also thinking of Bill in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and the whole seething betrayal ready to be released after the betrayer is revealed.

Julia, oh, that would end well

I voted for the hustler one, since guilty, confused amnesiac fornication was not one of the options provided

I can't think why.

If I ply you with cakes and muffins, will that help the writing process or hinder it? Your J/V stuff is like crack.
Anna S.eliade on June 6th, 2005 05:41 am (UTC)
Hee. Ply me! Ply me to the moon! I meant to answer your other comment by the way. I squeed like mad to know that you'd read some of the J/V! I am of the happy.

*many kisses*

Oh, so I asked S. about the software and she hasn't bought it but she was planning to talk today at her triathalon to a woman who still works there who might be able to get it, and basically I said to her that she needs to answer her frickin e-mail, so write her again, okay? ;)

*more kisses*

Some? SOME? I live not in the world of some. There is no some. Does anyone ever have some crack? I don't think so. I read every.single.word - some of them more than once, I'm not too proud to say - and then kept digging for more even though I knew it wasn't there, like how I sometimes go looking for chocolate in the cupboards late at night even though I know there's none there because there wasn't any there last time I checked and no one's been to the store since then so where would it come from but you never know and wouldn't it be cool if there was?

In other words: refresh, refresh, refresh. I happily join the masses of minions in clamoring for more.

Or if, like me, you spend the waning hours contemplating the pros and cons of using a day of sick leave in the fruitless pursuit of Monday peace of mind.

Amen, anaxila, there is only the crack that is J/V.

Dammit, I've wanted Vaughn goes rogue for no apparent reason since the beginning of this crack-fest.

*throws muffins at you*

Rogue! Vaughn! Yay!
Trepkos: Cool by Becky Bootrepkos on June 6th, 2005 07:01 am (UTC)
Didn't vote for it, but I'm sure you're gonna write hustler!Vaughn anyway, so I didn't need to!

All of the above.

Please.
