Writerly things

The su_herald quoted one of my fics yesterday, which was really cool. I re-read it, and got a spark of an idea (which is huge - I've had NO ideas for writing in a very long time.) and am JUST NOW starting on my lynnevitational fic. I know, I know. *beats head*

So, Connor things:

  • Is there any chance that while in Quor-Toth he misunderstood the teachings of his "father" and confused the Holy See with the holy sea? And thus he sent Angel to his redemption/penance at the end of Season 3? :)
  • Also, I hadn't heard the story of Edgaro Mortara, a 6 year olf Jewish boy that had been baptised by his nurse, so the Pope stole him away from his family and raised him as his own. The boy's father spent years trying to get him back, but we're talking the Catholic Church in the 1800s. Holy crap. The parallels my brain is making... *writes furiously* The Pope actually said: "I had the right and the duty to do what I did for this boy, and if I had to, I would do it again." Y HELO THAR HOLTZ.
  • Um, I've spent the morning looking at torture/Inquisition sites. This is... this is going to be DARK. Dante ain't got nothing on some things I've found/am writing. Yeesh.

Aside from all that stuff, I'm in a TERRIFIC MOOD. Which is nice, because I've not felt bouyant and joyful for a bit, and I like that feeling. *is happy and hugs/squishes you all!!!* It is a MILLION SQUILLION degrees out, and as we have had non-stop rain for literally 6 weeks, it is DISGUSTING outside. Like, imagine swimming in a bowl of jell-o while it's being microwaved. And so? I stay indoors writing torture scenes. Ahahahaha.

Oh, say: (can you see) does anyone know where I can find snapshots of Simpsons episodes? I've been looking for a shot of Homer eating pork of some sort. Anyone?

I get to FINALLY see OotP on Saturday: \o/ I'm avoiding all posts regarding the movie until then, omg. *bounces* IT'S ALMOST THE WEEKEND, WHOOOOO!

Ya uuuuused me, Skinner! Ya uuuuuuuuuused me!!
Easy as PIE, if pie were vinegar, which I don't support:

2 parts vinegar to 8 parts water in a spray bottle. Spritz the plant you want to die liberally, keeping in mind that the vinegar doesn't care what it kills. I would suggest hitting said weed again in a day or two. The hotter it is outside (without rain) the better. If it rains, hit the weed after the rain's stopped and the plant dries.

Man, I was getting information from one site and got sick to my stomach. Holy copper boot, Batman. It's uh... it's church heavy, this one.

**I cut the rest of the comment and will email it to you. No spoilers for the movie, but this way, you can ignore the email until you see the movie.**

It is so humid here, too. UGH. I hate walking outside and two seconds later, I'm drenched in sweat. NOT ON, SOUTH. NOT ON.

*twirls you*

I did have a wonderful time raiding your memories to find just the right quote.

;)

And I cannot WAIT to see what comes of your inspiration.

**smoochsmooch**

Awww, that was such a cool thing to see!! Thanks, Snow.

And man, this is CHURCH/INQUISITION heavy. But then, Holtz did belong to the Inquisition and had his own army... *squish*

I've been looking for a shot of Homer eating pork of some sort.

You are strange and wonderful and I love you for it.

Good luck with the writing. I have to finish my Heroes xover fic before I leave the house on Sat. morning for Denver. Why do I still sign up for ficathons?!?

Oh, good luck to you, too, what with all the stuff going on! Man, you are BUSY with a capital B.

The Homer thing is so I can make myself an icon with him all drooling/blissed out over the pork and it can read, "That'll do Pig." Hahahaha.

I figured the image was for an icon. Several years ago Chris, his mother, and I picked up the youngest brother B from church camp on a Friday. Since they're Russian Orthodox, they don't eat meat on Fridays all year round. We went to this great place for lunch and after two weeks at camp with lots of vegetarian foods, B said, "I know it's Friday, but can I please have greasy dead pork products for lunch?" He had a hot ham and cheese with bacon. I was quite amused. We still say "greasy dead pork product" when we have anything pork.

hahahahaha!! Man, now I want a greasy dead pork product for lunch...

But I will probably end up eating a burrito. :(

Oooooh, you are very fancy, being quoted and all.

*touches you -- omg, not like that -- okay, maybe like that...perv...*

YAY for fic ideas, sparks, writings, and musings!

Isn't there at least one ep of the Simpsons innwich Homer bites into an entire pig?

stoney321
Jul. 12th, 2007 04:24 pm (UTC)
ENTRE!!! YES YES YES! There IS an episode like that - I must find it!! *loves*

And man, it's nice to have ideas, instead of slammed doors in my head, you know? *acts all shy, but scoots closer for more touching* Heeee!

Dude, there must be something in the water. I'm writing Connor torture fic for the Lynnevitational, too. SOLIDARITY SISTER.

It is totally creeping me out, though! As I'm writing, I keep muttering, "Oh, man. Oh, wow. Oh, yikes."

Jul. 12th, 2007 04:48 pm (UTC)
Oooh, are you? AWESOME. (I originally had planed to write an Angel/Buffy/Connor fic with torture - hahaha - but couldn't GET anywhere with it. Bah.)

And if only VK didn't look so GOOD when he's being tortured, we wouldn't be COMPELLED to do the things we do to him!! :D

Stupid not going anywhere stories! Banned! I had two -- TWO -- Spike/Connor stories that I had to gnash my teeth over before this Angelus/Connor fic knocked me over the head. But it worked out in the end, so, yay! Yay for story ideas!

And if only VK didn't look so GOOD when he's being tortured, we wouldn't be COMPELLED to do the things we do to him

For serious. That boy is so pretty when he bleeds.

Oooh, I think I remember you posting about those two stories. *pours mah 40 ounce out for the lost stories*

And not only does he look good all hurt and bruised, he looks like he LIKES IT. *straps him in a heretic fork*

I wants this fic! *grabby hands* Religious themes are my favorite.

Huh. I have no Connor icon. I used to have a Connor icon. Why don't I have a Connor icon? I should go make a Connor icon. In the interim I give you Connor's family.

my lynnevitational fic is a HET fic. With sex. Two things I've never done. shhhh... don't tell anyone. *headdesk*

Jul. 12th, 2007 05:47 pm (UTC)
Um, do you want it enough to act as a beta? *bites nails* CONNOR'S FAMILY. Aw, I like how Darla is both his mother and grandmother, Drusilla is his sister and great-grandmother, and Angel is his dad and brother.

Yay incest! Hahaha.

it will be GREAT. I cannot wait to read it!

I can do this if you need me to.

Oh, their family tree is so fucked up! It's beautiful.

seriously it may suck. It's Xander/Faith. But not. Post series. Andrea has been holding my hand through it. Deadlines hard.
stoney321
Jul. 12th, 2007 05:57 pm (UTC)
YAY. I will be emailing you hopefully very soon. (Why oh why am I last minute girl??)

I am ALL OVER Xander and Faith, are you kidding?? That will be AWESOME. You are awesome. Quit worrying. *loves*

ILU BETH. Entrenous said the same thing re:biting into a pig. I think I may have that season on DVD, actually... HOORAY.

HI BETH. My dad is good, even though I'm indoors because of the oppressive heat. HOW ARE YOU? (Also, do you still have those tees with the a-line and skulls? There was a black one and a green one...)

Oh, CRAPOLA. I mean, yay for the store, but I wanted to get one for a friend. (Any hope of getting another? In an L? In green? No? 'Kay.)

OMG I have died. twice, just reading your post. HolySea/See is brilliant... and I cannot wait.

And, btw... you;ve been quoted *twice* in the su_herald. We quoted "Fic In Tryptich" back on 6/25 because WEE LURVE EWE STOONAHY ♥

I KNOW!! I failed to mention my pleasure (did I? Did I comment to that post and say thank you? I meant to, if I didn't) and you guys are SO SWEET. *sends you monthly check*

I mean, the correlation with Holy See/Sea is hilariously awesome to me. Um... this fic is HEA-VEE on the Catholicism. In my defense to those who may be offended, EVERYTHING is from the bible and Papal papers. So. *hands*

Heh, papal papers. Papa prints the papal papers. :D

Your surprise went out in yesterday's mail, and as I sent it priority, it might actually get to you tomorrow or Saturday. I'm sending you an email explanation - so don't read the email before you open the package (on pain of being a big spoilery poopyhead). K?

Heeeeeee! OKAY! I'm very excited! (and pleased!)

AWESOME. That story about that Pope is cool. I mean, awful, but cool. I'm looking forward to your fic! I still don't know what I'm doing for lynnevitational.

It finally stopped raining down here. But it's still a million squillion degrees.

Have fun at OotP!

Kudos on the terrific mood despite the mosquito infested sauna like conditions. Holy See and holy sea and Edgaro Mortara paint Connor in a completely different light. Nice job connecting the dots.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
