My broadband pack arrived today! Yay! Oh the joy, on Monday I will be back in the land of fast internet at all hours and as a result of that a lot less sleep. It all makes me very happy indeed.
Apart from that first week of school is nearly finished, and it has gone far better than expected, this is partly due to the fact that I go home with presents nearly every day, as more people remember my birthday. Am very busy with applications for university, preparations, research, panic attacks. It’s all here. It also means that I spend every available minute on the Oxford website and emailing different colleges and writing personal statement. That’s why I am terribly behind on my flist and fics and anything new, I am so out of the loop, haven’t managed to catch up with anything since I’ve come back. This makes me a terrible beta, for which I apologise loads and promise to send everything I have to beta by Friday. I am writing this here so I have to do it.
I am going to have a joined birthday party with a friend on Tuesday for which I am very excited. We have the same dress but in different colours, mine is with blue, hers with pink, and we’ll wear them. I love parties, and I can get properly legally pissed. Not that I have plans to do so…
Ooh, am going to an Open Day in Oxford next Friday, it will be cool, because I also accidentally booked free accommodation, so am sleeping there too. Am scared but excited, the sad thing is that it is a specific college (University) to which I wanted to apply, but after emailing them to ask about the importance of maths, they weren’t very nice so I will probably apply to Exeter college instead. It will be pointless if I really love University, but it will be a good experience nonetheless. Am going to an Open Day in Warwick on the following Monday, so four days off school! Yay!
It felt like I hadn’t written anything in ages, apart from a sort of silly parody H/D so yesterday I decided to do so. What I wrote was my first ever piece of O.C. fanfiction, I absolutely love the O.C., even though we are so behind here (about the middle of Season 1, think Oliver) and have been reading anything I could find, unfortunately it isn’t much and there is a surprising lack of slightly less common pairings. Yes I do love Ryan/Seth, but god there has to be some more Ryan/Luke and surely I am not the only one who sees the Jimmy/Sandy! God how tame O.C. writers are compared to the ones in the HP Fandom! The amount of odd/rare pairings, pure porn and all sorts of kinks found here is great, you can find a fic about pretty much anything that occurs to you. All I wanted was something slightly different, but O.C fics (or at least anything I’ve managed to find so far) just don’t have that, by all means they are not bad, just very similar. My pathetic attempt at writing one is also like that, nevertheless it’s not completely awful for a first fic. It will of course never see the big world of internet.
