You hear a really good song and think, "this would make a really great song for guitar hero." That, and when you hear a song that is in guitar hero and automatically start air guitaring along, as though you were playing the plastic guitar...

Even worse is when you tell people such thoughts.

Fic is an interesting concept, I think. I mean, obviously, but specifically I find it interesting how it's a creative outlet that all but one or two people never get publish or even get credit for. Oh sure, many fic writers can put it online and have people read it, but it's sort of really...geeky. There are numerous books out there based on tv series and movies, but there's something legitimate to a book that fic writing, no matter how outstanding, simply cannot accomplish. We can write all the novels, screenplays, and comics we want under the heading of fic, but it's still really embarrassing to ever admit to anyone. I mean, tell someone you've written an x-men or smallville book that they can find in the bookstore, and that's pretty cool. Show them the exact same book online, and it's only fic, and now you're the world's biggest dork. Or so I assume. I'm not really sure why that is. I'd be so thrilled to show a book I'd written to family or friends, but fic? Yikes, not likely.

And regarding the idea of fic, I've been having an incessant, persistent, and, to me, awesome fic idea floating through my head the last few days. It wouldn't leave me alone, so I've started writing it. Like most of my stuff, it doesn't look to be terribly big, but on the other hand it's already at four pages, and none of the crossover peeps have yet started to interact. Not to mention that if I really want to keep going with the story after I've had my fun with them, I can always throw in some zombies, or something, and take the whole thing on the road. Depends on how the writing seizes me. To wet the appetite, or possibly send everyone running for the hills at the enormity of the size, I'm having four completely separate sets of characters all be stuck in a mostly empty food court of an airport due to bad weather. The characters include: Buffy, Xander, Dawn (Post season 7); Wolverine, Jubilee, Spiderman (Indeterminate timeline, and in civies); Clark and Chloe (I have no idea when, or what season, it doesn't really matter anyway); and Dean and Sam (Meh). It's a daunting task of not only writing ten very individualistic characters, but to have them all interact?... Just yikes.

I have to say though, thus far it seems to be working okay. I've watched or read all of them recently enough to have all their voices in my head for the dialog and actions. My Logan, Jubilee, and Peter interaction needs a little tweaking (it's all rough and everything needs a little), but otherwise I quite like it. It is, however, unbelievably nerdy to write such a thing. I feel what tiny bits of ruggedness I may have once possessed just oozing out of me for even suggesting such an event.

Post 6 very random facts about yourself

1. I never leave the house without my wallet, a pocket-sized bible, and two to four kleenex.

2. I have memorized pi to 32 places, 30 of those due to a song from a video game.

3. I was born at home.

4. I rarely ever cry (we're talking like maybe once a year, if that), but certain shows and movies can yank them out. When Buffy dies, for instance. When I was sick and watched the original Charlotte's Web, I about near bawled.

5. I love musicals. Well, a good number of them anyway. Especially the singing parts. Music moves me.

6. I dislike watching most movies if I have read the book.

The fic ticks bit and here is the result of all the scratching. Pretty much just Clark. No specific cannon, though the klutziness suggests a bit of movie universe. No matter. Enjoy!

A friend is having a birthday today, and I suggested, as it is late now, singing her a birthday lullaby. Of course, I swiftly came to the realization that likely no such thing exists. However, this has emblazened on my mind the grand idea of someone actually making some. It then further occurred to me that not only could I sweep the birthday world, thus far barren of decent lullabies, but I could sweep many areas deprived of lullabiage. We could make our slogan be, "a lullaby for every occasion." And naturally, my mind leaps to as many funny ones as serious ones... Heh, I can just imagine all of the joke commercials and ads.

"Plane about to fall out of the sky? No worries! We have a lullaby for that! *note, a light, gentle, even tone is required*"
"House burnt down? Not a problem! We have a lullaby for that! *note, must be able to sob along at the right moments*"
"Someone falling asleep due to a concussion? We have a lullaby for you! *note, do not use if fond of the concussed. For a helpful lullaby, ask about 'the screamer' or 'sleepy mr. bitchslap mcgee'*"

My brain twitches in delight at the thought of such a prospect.

In a box!

I've been thinking, having watched Serenity a few more times (once with french subtitles, ooh la la), and now starting to watch the episodes of Firefly again, I've been thinking on the subject of morality and convictions and such. Having gotten over the dirty old westernishness of the show, I've found myself now more repulsed by the very actions and thoughts of the show. There is something of a nihilistic bent to Firefly. There's always bits of hope within the show, but overall, there's just this theme of moving ever onward with no real hope, joy, or purpose. Granted, many shows are like this in some way, but this show in particular is all about the ability to keep walking forward, in a stubborn effort to sort of stick it to the universe, even God.

I say God in this instance, and even though a belief in God is rather contrary to nihilism, I see this as still the case. I shall elaborate...somewhat. I'm reminded of those oft-quoted words, "methinks the lady doth protest too much." In the case of Mal, he's all about pointless marching ever onward, and it seems to me that he does indeed protest too much in the case of God, as seen by pretty much any time he and Book are ever in the same room together. I'd like to say on an aside that I'm glad that Book was on the show to give the crew something akin to an actual conscious, but it only further proves how often the others are depraved. Anyway, I just get the feeling that Mal is really angry with God, probably for what happened at the battle of serenity, to the extent that he is not just pointlessly marching ever forward just to keep moving, but is trying to keep ahead of whatever it is that God may want from him. He's rejected so much, though his one redeeming value is his love for his family on his ship. Not that that can actually redeem him, but it contains a spark of hope.

Now I've gone off in a direction I didna expect to take, and I didn't really get to the point I was originally aiming for, but I'm tired now, and not really up to getting back on track for the moment.
