Is Anyone Else

Planning on writing fanfic for NaNoWriMo? 

I have a Tamora Pierce plot bunny that just won’t leave me alone - even though I was originally planning on writing a Justice League fic. At the same time, I really wanted to use this as an excuse to write something completely original - alas original ideas were not particularly forthcoming. Yesterday I stumbled across this quote that made up my mind for me:

The best way to prepare to have ideas when you need them is to listen to and encourage your obsessions.- Tamora Pierce


So it’s going to be a month spent immersing myself completely in Tortall - I can’t wait! It’ll also be my first fic over 10,000 words! (hopefully!)

This guy’s walking down a street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can’t get out. A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up, “Hey you! Can you help me out?” The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole, and moves on. Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up, “Father, I’m down in this hole; can you help me out?” The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by “Hey, Joe, it’s me. Can ya help me out?” And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, “Are ya stupid? Now we’re both down here.” The friend says, “Yeah, but I’ve been down here before and I know the way out.

a sudden arboreal stop

laurusnobilis:

C.J. Cregg: Is there anything I can say other than the President rode his bicycle into a tree? 
Leo McGarry: He hopes never to do it again. 
C.J. Cregg: Seriously, they’re laughing pretty hard. 
Leo McGarry: He rode his bicycle into a tree, C.J., what do you want me - the President, while riding his bicycle, came to a sudden arboreal stop. 

I have become completely obsessed with the West Wing. I don’t sleep, I don’t answer calls. I’m just sitting around watching the West Wing. It’s probably the best show I have ever watched. 

Did I mention I have a final exam tomorrow?
