I had a dream about Benzaie this morning. It was really nice. I was with some of my friends at this park, and I saw Benzaie at one of those outdoor pavilion things and started squeeing and working up the nerve to go over and talk to him. Then he came over to our group and autographed a page from my notebook. (SQUEE.)
I know I'm behind on reading and leaving comments on many fics, and I'm late in replying to your lovely comments. I will get to that, I swear, and my 100th fic too, but I'm so incredibly busy writing a script, essay, taking long road trips, and loads of other stuff that I probably won't catch up on most of that until sometime next week. I'm very sorry. On the upside I've been having a great couple of days and I'm going to be hanging out with loads of other geeks this weekend, so that's good!
Ok, it's official, I am now a Phineas and Ferb fangirl.
Laugh all you want, it's a kickass show! Fantastic music, funny stories, cute characters, A PLATYPUS (who, btw, looks like Linkara), A MAD SCIENTIST, a troperiffic world, moments that make me laugh so loud my cat gets scared, DID I MENTION THAT THERE IS A PLATYPUS WHO FIGHTS A MAD SCIENTIST?! (And I am SO going to write Perry/Dr. Doofenshmirtz fic once I figure out how to get around the whole bestiality aspect. I'm thinking of a mad science ray gun that somehow turns Perry human ... good lord, it'll be cracky as all get-out ...)
Ok, maybe I need to explain myself a little bit about the whole Perry/ Doofenshmirtz thing:
Not only does Doofenshmirtz give Perry a key to his office/house, confide his childhood traumas to the platypus, routinely offer him food, and speak to him as a friend as much as an enemy (and all this by episode eight, no less!) THEY SHARE A LOVE OF CHEESE.
Also, Perry is to Dr. Doofenshmirtz as Linkara is to Dr. Insano. I am not the first to make the connection. Check the ‘Wild Mass Guessing’ page of ThatGuyWithTheGlasses on tvtropes.

OH MY GOD THIS IS THE BEST EPISODE I'VE SEEN IN A LONG LONG TIME! (Hurrah! Hurrah! Huraaaaaaay!)
( Spoilers for this episode, many others, and the series finale to Pushing Daisies )
I've been strong-armed by my 'friends' into going on a week-long hiking-and-camping trip. Joy. Next week I won't be online at all until Friday night, perhaps not even until Saturday afternoon. Double-joy.
Woohoo! Linkara updated today! And he was so angry! It was so cute! (But I’m a little annoyed, because every time he said ‘science’ I expected to see an Insano cameo, but none came! *wibbles* I need my mad scientist fix! *goes to read some Girl Genius*)
Oh, and I was quoted TEN TIMES on heroes_meta! HURRAY!
On a slightly-nervous note, has anyone else seen Bennet the Sage’s review of ‘Artemis’s Lover?’ (DON’T listen to the story, because I listened to JUST THE AUTHOR’S NOTES and they made me sick.) Ever since posting my AVGN/NC fic, I’ve been watching the beginning and ends of his Fanfic Theater vids to see if he’s found my stuff yet. And … he didn’t name names or hint hints, but the way he said “very special episode” made the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end. What if this ‘very special episode’ in a month is one of OUR fics (or, namely, my Apocalypse fic!) and he’s organizing everyone to read their parts and do reaction shots and things?
And is that even a BAD thing? If it isn’t, why am I feeling the sudden urge to curl into a ball and hide under my bed? (Bennet the Sage SCARES ME!)
Oh, right, most of you are here for the Heroes review! On with that!

I did an exciting thing today! I called my representative to urge them to vote yes on the Matthew Shepard Act! Tomorrow it's gonna be voted on! Go call your representative to urge them to vote yes! Lots of nasty, homophobic, fear-mongering people are calling and urging them to vote no!

Chief among them:
HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT AMAZON'S BOGUS DISCRIMINATORY POLICY?! GO SIGN THIS PETITION RIGHT NOW! http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/in-
I wrote a long and angry note attached to my signature that included big words and no swearing. I strongly encourage you all to do the same. If you haven't the time for a rant, just sign. Please. And don't you DARE buy anything from amazon until the policy is revoked! (Or, better yet, don't go back to them ever again! I know I haven't he funds to be able to afford that, but maybe I should just cut back on what I buy and get most of my stuff from Borders ...)
I know they're fixing it but SIGN ANYWAY! Don't let them forget it!
In other news: Yay! They rescued the Captain from the pirates! (But *wibbles* the pirates were only teenagers! I'm glad they got the Captain home safe, but sad that people can be so desperate in some parts of the world.)
More news: OMG I got books 9, 10, and 11 of The Dresden Files as an Easter gift! Sometimes, I just LOVE my family. Soon, I shall be caught up with everyone else and able to write and post Harry/Marcone fic! ( SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS FOR 'WHITE NIGHT' )
Still more news: You know what's fantastic? Torchwood Season 3 starts shooting ON MY BIRTHDAY! (August 18th, to those of you who can't recall that.) Isn't that AWESOME?! And my dad e-mailed this to me! I love my gay dad. *hearts*
Even more news: Last Friday night I watched Dear Frankie. You should all watch it too. You will sob loud, shrieking sobs, particularly if you grew up with divorced parents, like me. However, it is one of the most moving, beautiful movies you will ever see, so ... go see it.
Last news: You know what's TOTALLY OTP? Carmen Sandiego/Waldo. Think about it.

I don't know about you, but I'm not going on the internet tomorrow. 'Conflicker' might attack! I soooooo cannot afford to get a virus right now. Why can't hackers get their kicks somewhere else, far, far away from my harddrive?(I mean, I know that's the point: they're far, far away from your harddrive, using computers in Russia or something, but you know what I mean.)
Still horendously busy. Still psyched about my new Dresden Files. Still tired out of my mind. Still typing like crazy. Still loving my Slings and Arrows DVD sets.
Anyhoodle, WAZT! Huzzah!
( Spoilers for every episode of Heroes ever ... to be safe ... )
Sorry I've been so absent of late, guys. After the play ... well, school seemed to get instantaneously busier. I HATE dashing from one class to another and being so frenzied that what I WANT to do (i.e. watch and review TV episodes, type Shakespeare stories, write fanfic, reply to comments, etc.) gets crammed into impossibly short periods in which I am, more often than not, waylaid by tvtropes.org and distracted from my personal writings.
Anyhoodle, the Lost WAZTs are coming, I have two-thirds done already (though they aren't as in-depth as this one, see again 'pressed for time') and am making good headway on various personal writings of my own. However, due to the sheer ferocity and insanity that has become my schoolwork, expect my updates to be few and far-between until further notice. I mean, the WAZT will be prompt (ish) and there may be some sparse fanfic here and there, but I simply DO NOT HAVE TIME.
And I hate it. I'm sorry. I miss all of you. I wish I could be lazy again. But I can't. Even now, there are four different things pressing into my over-wrought brain. Not to mention that That-Guy seemed a tad too familiar with A-Girl over the weekend, and spurred such overwhelming feelings of jealousy that I had to leave the room for fear that I'd bash the poor woman over the head with ... something. I despise jealousy. 'Tis a feeling I've rarely felt. That outbreak over the weekend gave me a rather scary insight into Othello, however, which is fortunate, as I'm expected to write an essay on the play soon. (Gah, Iago is so EEEEEEEEVIL! It was so insanely fun to read his parts!)
Anyhoodle, this is the WAZT for 'Cold Snap:'( Spoilers for every Heroes episode ever ... just to be safe )
I had a mostly-good day, but there was always this underlying urge to turn it into a bad day. I blame getting woken up from my dream early. You see, towards the end of my (very long, incredibly complex) dream, I was walking around this bookstore, and I ended up at the wrong workshop. So I headed back to the bridge, but I saw some people from my theater group (aka 'My Nakama') practicing sword moves in the aisles by the windows. The guy who's playing King Henry (who was leading the practice) told me to grab a sword and join them. I slid over to the pile of swords, grabbed one, and took my place in the line. A girl with a ponytail and glasses (who I don't recognize now that I think back on it) said I'd have to pay 25$, and I said that was fine, because I'd just left a workshop without starting it, and I could use that money. She handed me this bill, I think, and I stuffed it into my pocket - I was suddenly wearing short-shorts or no pants at all - and took my place in line, with my sword ... and then I woke up.
I was VERY mad.
Then again, before all of that, I was in an episode of Lost and Kate was going to be eaten by an ogre Duke, then I was in my old house, and then I was planning a mission (to head underground and fight someone or something) and I was assembling this team, which included a girl I'm semi-friends with (who didn't want to go, so I called her a bitch) and a girl who's currently in India. Once I'd gotten all of that together, I was walking across this field, and I saw That-Guy. He was wearing a red shirt and carrying some stuff. Since this mission was kinda a suicide mission, I thought 'What the hell ... better do it now' and when up to him, took his hands, climbed up onto him ... and then I kissed him. On the lips. And it was good.
But you're all here for WAZT, right? (Which I didn't watch last night, because I was sore and exhausted and needed to learn my lines.)
So ... here it is!
[P.S. I apologize for any grammatical or spelling errors, and well as any places where I forgot to add strike-through to the text. I was insanely pressed for time.]

Ugh. I am sorry, but yesterday I got home from the first rehearsal for Henry V and felt like I wanted to die. Not because of the rehearsal, that was great, and I am SOOOOO psyched to be back in theater, but that horrid illness I got still hasn’t gone away, and yesterday I was coughing up a storm. That said, this WAZT ain’t all that good. I was fighting to breathe semi-normally at the time, but that’s no excuse for my foul temper yesterday evening. Sorry guys. Today I seem to be significantly on the mend *crosses fingers*
For those of you that don’t know, [the stuff in brackets like this is reflective commentary added after the episode.]

That’s it, I’m officially opting out of this round of Knight vs. Anarchy. *sighs* Just can’t do it. Not only does the crossover I started contain one-and-a-half pairings I’ve never written before, I just couldn’t get it working. What with WAZT, personal writings, sonnets that are due, and lines that I have to have memorized, I just can’t do it. *headdesk* I earned five points for my team last round, I hope that makes up for this.
Got a new Dresden File on Sunday. Sixth one, Blood Rites, which is a little slower on the uptake than previous ones, but that’s cool with me because it’s still hilarious in the right places. It’s as if Jim Butcher realized that after five books he thought to himself “Oh, I can take a bit of a breather, they’re good and hooked now! I don’t need to make aunt_zelda late for her classes or keep her up late with my ridiculously suspenceful writing this time!’
On PAGE EIGHT (I kid you not!) I muttered "boys, stop flirting!" I hate knowing that Thomas and Harry are (spoiler alert!) half-brothers, because if they weren't I'd ship them with a fiery passion. Or just mild enthusiasm. (Harry/Marcone all the way, baby.)
Also got my copy of Repo! the Genetic Opera yesterday! Huzzah! Can't wait for the soundtrack to catch up! *dances* Tried to take a nap, then 'woke up' and watched some special features and some of the commentary.
Despite being in a supremely good mood on Monday, I was a little irritable towards the end of the day. I blame the weird dream where my teeth were falling out. That has NEVER happened to me, and I KNOW they're supposed to be bad luck, so I'm quaking in my boots over here. But most of the dream was pretty good: I was in a weird city on this subway, and a friend of mine from RL kept telling me I was being waaaaay too nice, giving up my seats to other people and all. Then I started loosing teeth all over the place, and he helped me pick them up off the carpet on the staircase in the station.
Today I was so-so. VERY tired, but I managed to get through the day and now I’m home, I’ve taken a shower and worked for an hour on my Physics project, and now I’m typing with the cat sitting on my lap. Life is good again.
