I loved everything about the newspaper business, even the damned deadlines. I love chasing down a story, getting at the truth, and getting that front page byline. Sure, I’ve got an ego. You’ve got to have one to be a star reporter in this business. )

Ficcish Update

bradygirl_12: (steve--bucky (icy blue))
I signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang! :)

Frankly, I thought I was going to bypass any Big Bang this year as I had no ideas as the sign-up dates approached. Wasn't that big a deal since I've been writing Big Bangs since 2011 and nothing was materializing for the [livejournal.com profile] dcu_bang and [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang, so I decided to see if I could get inspiration from Captain America 3: Civil War. Even after that it was sketchy but with a couple of days before sign-ups closed, I got inspiration! :)

The Raven And The Nightingale is stalled after I thought it was revving up again, but such is the way of things. I think I'll do some more research while waiting to write again. It's just too much fun to relegate to never getting out of the notebook stage. :)

I've got two birthday stories I owe and happily am working on one and have an idea for the other.

I've got some stories that are still in the notebook stage. One's a Jurassic Park tale that I wrote last year in a flurry of inspiration after seeing the first film again and those fun 'n' sexy scientists, Alan and Ian! :)

I've got a Steve/Bucky tale inspired by Age Of Ultron that's just been sitting in the Unsatisfied pile. I may try and fix that up.

And I've been editing a Clark/Bruce story told from the POV of Lois, one of my favorite things. :)

Still working on my Han/Luke comfort food fic. Comfort food: a fic that has no deadline and is generally fairly long so that I can enjoy the writing with no pressure. Even my own Challenges and Big Bangs have slight pressure. You have to work on a deadline fic while comfort food is worked on when hungry, er, in the mood. :)

I might even take a crack at the [livejournal.com profile] clexmas Spring Fling! Reverse Bang. I hadn't intended to but the art submissions are pretty intriguing, so who knows? That's in the 'Maybe' queue. :)

So it looks like my [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang story will be a summer project. Maybe I can spin a few seaside tales this summer, too. :)

They all paid attention as Clark began his earnest acceptance speech. Bruce half-listened to the speech, concentrating mainly on Clark.

Clark spent a fruitless afternoon as reporter and superhero searching for his two friends. He arrived home tired and discouraged. )
bradygirl_12: (pumpkin muffin (bats))
It's been a glorious day! :)

1) Dunkin' Donuts has pumpkin everything back! :) I went out this morning and bought a pumpkin muffin and pumpkin pie doughnut. The doughnut's gone. ;)

2) My sister is helping a friend out with a yard sale. We had a ginormous one last year before the move. This time she's not in charge, just one of the staff. :)

3) I've been watching the Ken Burns documentary, The Roosevelts: An Intimate History and plan to see the finale tonight. I've studied that era of the New Deal so I know a lot of the facts/events but I'm seeing new photographs and newsreels. I enjoy immersing myself in another time. The Great Depression was terrible, but the energy that the New Deal generated to combat it was exciting. And the coming war certainly taxed FDR's considerable political skills! Anyway, great stuff. :)

4: One more: watching The Adventures Of Superman. It's from the black-and-white first season with Phyllis Coates instead of Noel Neill as Lois. Apparently Phyllis came across as 'too tough' and so they replaced her with Noel. I like her and she was tough, too, but they considered her more 'feminine'. Sheesh!

Rain seemed to be endlessly on the horizon, whether as a full-blown storm or a steady drizzle. Water dripped off eaves and saturated gardens while glistening on the gargoyles in the city. No one at City Hall had to make noises about water conservation in the suburbs as a permanent gloom seemed to hang over the city. )
bradygirl_12: (christian (oscar winner))
Hi, luvs!

Yay, my man Christian has been nominated for an Oscar again! *dances* It's for his role in American Hustle, known as the 'Worcester Movie' around these parts because several scenes were filmed in Central Massachusetts.

Quick List of the movie's major nominations:

Best Picture
Best Actor: Christian Bale
Best Actress: Amy Adams
Best Supporting Actor: Bradley Cooper
Best Supporting Actress: Jennifer Lawrence
Best Director: David O. Russell
Best Original Screenplay: Eric Warren Singer & David O. Russell
Best Production Design
Best Costume

Bruce and Lois did well in the nominations! ;)

You can find the whole list of nominees here at: http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv-movies/academy-awards-2014-nominations-full-list-nominees-article-1.1581641

The film has a decent shot of taking home Best Picture, though I'm not sure they'll win in any other major category except for Jennifer Lawrence as Best Supporting Actress (gods, was she a hoot!). I would love to see Christian take home a second gold statuette, but he's already got one and a second nomination doesn't hurt the ol' career. :)

I do think that Jeremy Renner should have gotten a Best Supporting Actor nomination. He was outstanding as Camden's Mayor Carmen Polito in the film.

American Hustle is a funny, sly film with wonderful '70s trappings and an excellent cast. Go see it if you haven't already! :)

You can check out my review here but it has major spoilers.
bradygirl_12: (christian (oscar winner))
I saw a very enjoyable movie, American Hustle, with my sister this vacation week. I would highly recommend it. Set in the 1970s, it centers around the FBI sting Abscam. It stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Jeremy Renner. The first four have been nominated (Golden Globes) for Best Actor/Actress/Supporting and Jeremy should be, too. The film has been nominated for Best Comedy.

Many of the movie’s scenes were filmed in Central Massachusetts in a city called Worcester.

BTW, there is a comics connection here: Christian Bale, Amy Adam, and Jeremy Renner have all played comics characters: Bruce Wayne, Lois Lane and Clint Barton. :)

Read about the local color that isn’t New York or Los Angeles. Slightly spoilerish but nothing major. )

Want a break from superhero movies or action flicks that rack up the body count? Tired of comedies that rely strictly on bodily fluid and sex jokes? Then American Hustle might be for you!

The series follows canon but with my own changes, so while there will be canon, there will be departures from it as well. The entire series can be found here.
P.S. I had a lemonade doughnut last month and LOVED it! ;)

The elevator dinged and the doors opened, the quiet turned to chaos as the noise of the newsroom swept over her. She smiled as she stepped out of the elevator. This was her world, and nothing would ever replace it. )

Wonder Woman was pleased. The Clock Tower in Gotham City was a fine sanctuary for the meetings she had planned with these women. A portable thermaheater kept things warm, and Lois had brought snacks and cold drinks. A couch and chairs grouped around a coffee table offered a cozy setting. )
bradygirl_12: (Lois & Superman)
Hi, guys! The rumors swirling around DC's reboot are hilarious and mind-boggling, none more so than that by 2013 the Siegels get Lois, Clark, Krypton, and the 'S' symbol, and DC gets Superman, so no more of the former.

Okay, if that happens, it won't affect my writing personally. I know some people need canon to write, but think of it this way: you are lucky in this DC Comics fandom. If current continuity doesn't do it for you, choose the many that came before it! Try being a fan with only two hours of canon (a movie) or a few seasons of TV shows. Comics has over 70 years of canon! And besides, isn't fanfic a reinterpretation of canon as YOU see it?

There are fandoms out there that haven't had new canon in literally decades! And yet they're thriving! If everyone dumped a fandom because of no new canon, there wouldn't be much of fandom around in general.

Just a thought, because if the unthinkable happens (now we know why DC is re-designing the 'S' symbol) and Clark is split into two like Kirk by the transporter in The Enemy Within, the fandom could collapse with the exodus of a lot of people, or it could thrive if you choose to keep your own canon going. Remember all the fuss about Bruce being killed by Darkseid? A lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth and it turned out pretty good.

I can't dictate your Muses, but it'd be a damned shame if people left if that strange predicted scenario comes to pass. If I allowed canon to influence me too much I wouldn't be writing much of anything right now, to be honest. I don't often write gore and despair, you see. ;)

Anyway, if DC is smart (I know, I know!) they'll pay the Siegel and Schuster families and quit mucking around with the future of their flagship character. And I sympathize with the families, but what good is owning all those elements if you can't get Superman? Aren't you restricting your own future earnings by messing with the character so drastically? I know they don't trust DC (with good reason), but isn't it time for both sides to stop the crap and compromise? Jeez Louise, they're like the NFL players and owners haggling over billions and unable to come to an agreement! *rolls eyes*

Clark entered The Daily Planet newsroom and sauntered casually over to his desk, stopping short when he saw a single yellow rose laid out on the blotter over two buds. Curious, he picked it up and sniffed it. It was a lovely scent, full-bodied and rich. )
