"It's What Happened to Them" (Buffy/Angel) 1/1, R

Oops, what happened here?

Apparently, I wrote something. It has been a long, long, long time. But this has been sitting in my brain for at least a year, and I finally, over the last several weeks, actually ... *wrote* it.

MASTER LIST OF TRIXEN'S FIC [updated November 16 2008]

This is my shameless bid for feedback. Also, a handy cataloguing system. An enormous Master List of all my fiction, organized and detailed and the whole shebang. Seriously, I have been working on this for months. I'm either slow, or, well... I'm slow. This will soon be pinned to the top of my Journal, but I recommend bookmarking it if you are anal and lovely like me and want to be able to get to the fic without waiting.

Master List of Trixen"s FicCollapse )

I feel a bit like running up and down the halls of LiveJournal land shrieking, "MASTER LIST! MAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRR LIST!" But I won't. Whew. I'm just thankful to be done this montrosity.

Trixen time!

Let's have an update on my life! Fandom and Real, because that's how I roll.

1. I forgot how much I like Jann Arden. I've been downloading all of her old music (I own the CDs but they are at home in Canada) and wow. "Good Mother" especially is so fantastic. It always, always makes me cry because it describes so perfectly how I feel about my parents.

//I've got, money in my pocket
I like the colour of my hair
I've got a friend who loves me
Got a house, I've got a car

I've got a good Mother
and her voice is what keeps me here
feet on ground, heart in hand, facing forward
be yourself

......

Cardboard masks of all the people I have been
Thrown out with all the rusted, tangled, dented, goddamned miseries
You can say I'm hard to hold
but if you knew me, you'd know

I've got a good Father
and his strength is what makes me cry
feet on ground, heart in hand, facing forward
be yourself
\\

See why it makes me cry? Oh, *sniff* I miss my Mum & Dad so much. Can't wait to see them in June!!

2. I'm re-watching Dawson's Creek and OMG, the chemistry between Pacey and Joey was there all the way back in S1. Mostly because you can tell Katie and Josh wanted to ravage each other soooo badly, and plus, you can tell that Katie hates James Van Der Beek SO SO much. It's splendidly awesome.

How in heaven's name did the writers of that show EVER think Dawson would appeal to a mass audience? Or, for that matter, to anyone? I mean, for the last time, SHUT UP, Dawson. Signed, the world.

3. Continuing with Weight Watchers. It's getting a bit easier, though for a while there I was gaining and losing the same 4-5 pounds which is fucking frustrating. What I'm doing now is sticking to a few main things: I eat mainly fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds and wholemeal breads and pastas. BUT, and this is weird for me, I'm letting myself have small portions of my favourite foods -- like extra mature cheddar and peanut butter and good salad dressing. It's the best. So a day would be:

Breakfast - a smoothie made with frozen blueberries, frozen raspberries, frozen cherries, strawberries, skimmed milk, 2 tbsp wheatgerm and 1 tbsp flaxseed

Lunch - a piece of cheese, mixed peppers, cauliflower, crispy parma ham, cherry tomatoes and some sort of dip

Dinner - wholegrain pasta with a tomato based sauce and a side salad of mixed grated carrot, crumbled sesame crispbreads, veggies and light feta with REAL olive oily dressing.

SO good and I'm actually steadily losing weight. I mean, so far. Plus I'm doing Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred almost every day. It kicks my ass so hard.

4. My fic writing is not going well at all. I can't seem to get it. I am nowhere near Buffy at the moment so can't edit any chapters of By the Rivers Dark to make them fit for viewing. I am trying though. I want to write BSG fic, but don't feel worthy. I have a Titanic fic that I'm almost finished, but I mean, who wants to read that? I'm very sure that I will crank out a Pacey/Joey DC fic circa Season 5 (AKA the season of HELL AND FORGETFULNESS) that will fix that season of HELL AND FORGETFULNESS.

5. I am obsessed with Ray LaMontagne.

6. The constant media attention on Kelly Clarkson's weight is depressing me. Why is that what it always comes down to for a girl? Why is she always measured by that, like it somehow defines her worth? Poor, poor Kelly. I mean, I sense she doesn't give a shit, but that's how she rolls. I, on the other hand, would be crippled by the hatred and bile out there. And why? For what? Just because she has gained a few pounds? Fucking HELL.

That's all I've got for now. I think the rant finished me off.

i can has show back now plz?

God, I miss Battlestar Galactica.

So say we all, right? I was listening to the soundtrack tonight and the title music especially got to me. Not to mention, 'Kobol's Last Gleaming' and 'All Along the Watchtower'.

I miss the actors, they were so frakking good at what they did. I miss Starbuck and I miss Kara Thrace. I miss Lee Adama. I miss the President. I miss the talk of the colonies. I miss the Galactica. I miss Colonel Tigh and I miss SIX oh God I miss SIX that crazy crazy hot hot hottie. I miss the bravery and the bloodshed, the stars and the darkened halls, I miss the battlestars and the frakking or fighting, I miss the kissing and the weeping, I miss the planets and the shadows of the ships, I miss the speeches and the poetry, the epicness of it ALL and how it was so weighty with its own purpose and mythology and history and the gritty, messy, sexy darkness. It brought the pain. I loved that. I loved it. All of it.

I miss that show.

let's sail away, darlin'

Heh.

I am watching S1 of Dawson's Creek because I can, and because Love Film (UK's Netflix) lets you do such crazy things. James has never heard tell of the show, or it's actors, but he looked over my shoulder today and said, "Who is that wanker with the gigantic head?"

Oh, I love people's reactions to Dawson.

It's also quite amusing how you can tell that Katie Holmes and Josh Jackson were banging in their trailers at every available opportunity. The mad chemistry between them is palpable. There was an interview on the DVD with Katie, and she very dismissively rants about how unsuitable Dawson and Joey are for each other and how they shouldn't get together (maybe she was afraid she'd have to kiss the Beek?) but she mentions pointedly that she thinks Pacey and Joey "get a rise" out of each other and have a connection.

I have always loved Katie and Josh for that -- they saw the chemistry before the show's writers did, and lobbied for the relationship so hard that WE WON HAHAHAHA.

alcoholic, no, just passionate!

You know what I'm sick of feeling guilty about?

Having a glass of red wine.

All the doctors all blah blah liver failure cancer heart disease weight gain WELL WHATEVER. I LOVE red wine. I love the taste, the smell, the feel of it on my tongue. I love the different and complex flavours. I love how I can usually tell where it's from. I love the smoothness, the roughness, the oakiness or the fruitiness. I love cheap red wine. But most of all I love expensive red wine.

And I am sick to fucking death of feeling guilty about the fact that I ENJOY it. Everytime I turn around there is another 'reputable' research panel saying it is crap for my body, and yet, what ISN'T anymore? I could get hit by a bus tomorrow, and knowing my luck that is entirely possible, and I eat heathily and exercise, so I can has 1 guilty pleasure, right? EXCEPT NOT GUILTY.

/semi-joking except not.

I just made the most amazing granola of life. I found it in a GI cookbook. I love the GI and I've been sort of following it along with Weight Watchers and it's super helpful. I'm almost never hungry because the foods are so filling, nutritious and provide a slow energy burn. Yay!

Ingredients:

3 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
3 tbsp Tahini
150g whole oats (I used organic jumbo oats)
2 tbsp dessicated coconut
2 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp sunflower seeds
3 tbsp dried goji berries
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
3 tbsp Xylitol (or other vegetable derived natural sugar, even unrefined brown sugar works ... please don't use Splenda, I beg you)

Directions:
Heat a frying pan on a very low heat and add the olive oil. Let it slowly heat up (if you're using coconut oil, let it melt). Add the oats and cook them slowly, stirring to get all of the oil absorbed. I cooked mine for about 5 minutes until they were turning golden. Add the Tahini and stir for a minute, making sure the oats are coated evenly. Add all the other ingredients and stir.

Serves 4 people (serving side is 85g).

Top with organic, bio-live vanilla yogurt and prepare to DIE SO GOOD OMG. Also good with fresh strawberries or blueberries sliced on top.
