Oh, wow... I so meant to finish posting this. I swear. *facepalm* Here's the next chapter... Enjoy!


 

Capturing the Past - Chapter Seven )

I'll feel so much better when I've finished posting this. But I don't want to overwhelm anyone actually following me on DW, so... I'll post another chapter later today. And then maybe the last one, too. We'll see how the day goes.

For now, here's the next chapter!


Capturing the Past - Chapter Six )

Well, this is better than before, that's a plus...

I don't really have a lot to say here, except here's presenting the next chapter!


Capturing the Past - Chapter Five )
winterjameson: (Default)

I have no excuses. I'm just sorry. I'll do better, promise.

*sigh*

Here's the next chapter...


Capturing the Past - Chapter Four )

Okay... I blame my forgetfulness on the fact that I'm in a play, and that I'm writing my next Phineas and Ferb fic. That doesn't let me off the hook, but it is a reason...

Here's the next chapter!


Capturing the Past - Chapter Three )
winterjameson: (Default)

I meant to do this one a day, but apparently I don't have enough patience today. At least it's not five minutes after the last post...

Here's the next chapter!



Capturing the Past - Chapter Two )
winterjameson: (Default)
Well, well, well... I have written my first multi-chapter Phineas and Ferb fic. I guess that means I'm fully vested in the fandom, hmm? That's not so bad a place to be - it's so much fun here.  ;-)

I did my share of reading through the summaries of P&F stories at fanfiction.net, and there were a whole lot dealing with Candace and Phineas' biological father coming back into their lives and causing havoc. My muse decided to take that as a challenge, of course. My muse is weird that way. Now, I'm not making any comment as to the quality of any of those stories; I never read the stories themselves (well, I did read one, and it was very good), only the summaries. Which also means that if there are elements that sound like something someone else used, it's a total and complete coincidence.

True story!

And speaking of stories, here's the first chapter of my latest.

Capturing the Past - Chapter One )
winterjameson: (Default)

Wow, I haven't been on here for a while...

I'm not sure I had a whole lot to talk about, to be honest. Job hunting, fic writing, nephew-sitting, friend's-daughter-sitting... yeah, not a lot there to capture the imagination. At least, not in my opinion. But I don't know why I haven't tried just babbling on about all the weird thoughts that ramble on through my head. Someone might even be interested.

Maybe.

Anyway, for now I suppose I can just say that life feels like it might be heading in a more positive direction. I had a job interview on Thursday afternoon at the Sprint store in Madison on the east side. It felt like it went well enough, but I'll find out one way or the other next week. I think I really want this job. Well, of course I do, because I don't have a job at all and I desperately need the money, but I think I'd really like working there. Not an end-all, be-all, this-is-my-life's-work kind of thing - that's acting - but something I'll be satisfied with to get myself back on my feet, pay some bills, take an acting class or two, and save up some money to move out to Seattle like I've been dreaming of for years now. There's a sweet benefits package and they pay for me to have a cell phone. I even know which phone I'd want. How cool is that?

I'm currently watching Phineas and Ferb. My muse has planted roots in that fandom, Stargate SG-1 fanfics that need finishing aside. I'm not entirely bothered by this, because I'm having fun with the ideas, but at the same time I really want to finish Just a Small Experiment and write the joint "crossover" fic with Anne like we've started planning and all that. I also really, really want to finish A Road Not Taken, because it's been way, way too long since I did anything for it. And it's not like I don't know where it's suppose to go or how it's supposed to end... or even how its sequel is supposed to work. My muse just can't get into it when I try re-reading it. *sigh* I know I'll finish it. It's just going to take way too long.

I've felt extremely positive about this year since it started, and I don't know why. There's no reason I shouldn't, mind you, but I still don't know where the feeling is coming from. I did a tarot reading for myself on Thursday morning, asking where my acting career would be in a year, and things screamed positive, moving forward kinds of things. Then I did some yes/no questions, and I got a "definitely yes" when I asked if I would be a regular on a TV show. The cards also said it probably wouldn't be a long running show, but hey, beggars can't be choosers. And being a regular on one show could lead to another role like that, right? Right. I also asked about kids, and I got a "probably yes" to having them. My biological-clock-influenced heart cheered at that.

I was doodling in a new notebook at one of my rehearsals for Dearly Departed early last week and did what I normally do - I wrote out my potential baby names. Now, like I said, this is what I normally do, so I wasn't really thinking about it, just started writing and let the pen do what it was going to do. I found that I wrote out three names with my last name: Phoenix Cynthia, Phineas James, and Neva Lorraine. That's not how I usually do the name list thing. I usually have two columns, one for girls and the other for boys, and then do my top five first-middle name combinations for each. I did that underneath the three, but still... I wrote out those three names - in that order - unconsciously. Weird.

*sigh* Anyway, I think I'm going to get to bed. It's late, and apparently my nephew's here for the night, which means he'll be up early playing with his toys and watching TV... which will end up waking *me* up. I'm lucky I love him as much as I do. It makes that stuff easier to deal with...
winterjameson: (Phineas and Isabella)
*sigh* Me and prompts... I swear...

This little snippet (as compared to most of my work) came about thanks to a prompt from the Comment Fic community on Live Journal: any, any, fairy lights. My muse read this and ran for the hills with it, leaving me awake at far too early in the morning finishing and posting it. Let's hope I can stay awake later...

Anyway, this one is from the same timeline as A Day in the Life. I'm enjoying playing in that one, and just may end up writing out how I see things working out for everybody. Be warned, I love me some happy endings (or at least hopeful ones) and I am a romantic at heart. Just saying.

For now, here's my latest fic:

Fairy Lights )
winterjameson: (Tuxes)
I wrote this in response to a prompt at the Disney Kink Meme asking for Phineas and Ferb living together in the same house/apartment. After I had it written I found out they also wanted Ferb in an apron... but I hadn't gone there. Maybe if this mini-fic turns into something more...

Anyway, here's the fic!


A Day in the Life )
winterjameson: (Default)
I was rooting around in some old RGB fanfic files when I came across my Conversations series. The idea was born during a discussion with my friend Kelly while we were walking one night (I refuse to admit to how long ago it was...), and she mentioned it would be neat if I could write a story that was simply a conversation between two characters instead of an action/adventure piece. Now, she was talking about the Sailor Moon fandom, but my muse immediately went to the Real Ghostbusters... and proceeded to sketch out a plan for all ten pairings.

*sigh*

Ambitious muse is ambitious.

Anyway, I wrote the first six then stalled. I'm hoping by getting the ones I have finished out there I can spark the muse into finishing the rest of the series. I'm actually proud of these.

And now for the first installment of the Conversations series, Reconnection


Conversations: Reconnection )
winterjameson: (Phineas Flynn)
I thought I'd post my first completed Phineas and Ferb story, as that happens to be the fandom my muse is most interested in at the moment. I'll try to post more fic at a later date.

Sticks and Stones )

So it's about two in the morning, and I'm making my first post on my new account. Yeah, that's me in a nutshell. I've played around creating the account and uploading icons...

And now I can't think of much to say.

I've been working on research for an original manuscript I've had the idea for for years now, and I actually feel like I'm moving forward with creating the foundation for it all. I'm getting to really know *all* the main protagonists, and not just the *main* main one. I settled on the appearance of the major plot device. I keep pushing forward.

I'm proud of myself.

I still want to work on my fanfiction, though. I've got two main Stargate SG-1 fics that deserve to be finished sometime this century, one of which will lead to a crossover (of sorts) a friend of mine and I are looking forward to writing together. The other one is just huge and has been going on for *years*. I know where it's going and where it's going to end, and I just can't seem to get the motivation to get it there. I'm glad I have patient fans for that one.

I've posted a couple of Phineas and Ferb fics (I so surprised myself by writing for that fandom) and I have a longer one started. And I have another idea for a long fic bubbling about in my mind that makes noises on occasion about getting typed out. I find myself talking to myself to hash things out for plots...

What? Oh, you talk to yourself, too. Don't deny it.

Anyway, I find myself talking out plot points for both stories I've started and stories I haven't. It only encourages the plot bunnies. Heck, I still have bunnies for my older fandoms that push to the front from time to time.

If my head explodes, people will know why.

*sigh* I think I'll go now and get back to the plotting and research. (Yeah, my fanfics get research, too. When I write, no matter what it is, I want it to be the best it can be.) And I need to read the fics a new friend of mine posted just a little while ago. And then maybe I should think about going to bed.

Maybe.
