woooohooo, my Muse came back to me just in time for the startrekbigbang
rough draft submission deadline! it just had to be over 20k with a beginning, middle, and end, and my draft satisfied those requirements, even though there are multiple gaping holes...and some scenes with bits missing here and there.
BUT I CAN HAZ ART AND A MIX!
i am too excited about this.
breaking into this fandom has been tons of fun, and i'm probably crazy because this is really the first thing i've written for it. and it's a big bang. but i LOVE these characters, especially jim and bones. they're the first slash pairing i've really fallen for, though i love gen with them just as much.
my bigbang is a detailed (like, daily account detailed) evolution of their friendship during all three years at the Academy, until the movie starts. so it's just movie canon, but at this point i've read so much fic, and shingo_the_pest
is such an amazing beta that i feel somewhat competent and able to tackle such a new world.
this fic will probably be over 40k when it's done...i don't think i've ever written anything this huge, not even for draco/hermione. there will be a snippet sometime!
also, in RL news, today was the first day of class, or, the first day of my last year of school... ever. at least for a while.
what a crazy thought!
one day it's exciting, and the next, it scares the crap out of me. i know this year is going to just fly by, so i'm determined to soak up as much from it as i can. come may, i will have a masters. and it's going to feel AMAZING.
