I came to the unfortunate decision today that I won't be participating in [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang this year. I'm thrilled with my idea, but things just did not come together in time and while I could probably bang out the necessary words for another fic I had on the back burner, I know it would be rushed. I made that mistake last year, and refuse to do so again. I want to devote the necessary time to getting both of them right.

I'll admit I'm disappointed - this is the first time since 2009 that I won't be participating - but ultimately, I know it's for the best.

[livejournal.com profile] sailthouforth and [livejournal.com profile] geckoholic, your input the past few weeks was invaluable, and I'm definitely not abandoning the fic. It will just have to keep for a while. I'm hoping that I can look at it with fresh eyes and come back swinging.

However, I am still participating in [livejournal.com profile] sncross_bigbang. The first draft of that should go out to my artist and my betas this week. So, upside.
jacyevans: (*brain cells dying*)
Anyone want to do a word war/writing sprint tonight? I am desperate here. My brain refuses to focus, I'm only 9,000 words into my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang, and I'm hoping that if I know I'm writing with other people, I'll have a little more inspiration.

Google chat or AIM is cool with me, or even if someone knows where we can set up a chat room. I just need to get some words on the freakin' page.

I decided to sit down this morning and attempt to work on one of my big bang fics. My [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang fic has been woefully ignored lately, so I opened the file and flexed my fingers, ready to start.

And promptly got smacked in the face with a scene for the OTHER fic I was considering for this challenge, and after 400 words, I fell in love with it all over again. And now, I have no idea what to do.

This is the fic I have had on the backburner for a while (2 years, give or take), and was determined to get written for this big bang challenge. Then, I was smacked in the face with idea #2 (the Sam/Dean/Jess fic of d00m), and honestly... it's sort of a conundrum now. Because as much as I wouldn't mind writing that fic, and as much as it seems to be one people would like to see... this one is the one I am more attached to, the one I like more.

Yes, I know, I know - write for yourself, not other people. That doesn't mean I'm not worried that if I post this, no one will read it :-/
jacyevans: (*giggle*)
I just spent the last two hours chatting with [livejournal.com profile] herbeautifullie and skyping with [livejournal.com profile] dream_mancer. Our conversations ranged from making fun of bad fic (buttery what?!) to waxing nostalgic about the fandom good old days. Much laughter occurred.

Thanks for making my night, ladies ♥

In other news, the new SPN big bang fic is a go. I got permission from the mods and the original prompter today. Sam/Jess/Dean, here I come *headdesk* Save me now.

Schedules for [livejournal.com profile] sncross_bigbang and [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang have gone up. SO EXCITED. SO READY.

Bring on the crazy! :D
jacyevans: (*yay!*)
I DID IT.

20,023 WORDS.

I FINISHED MY [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang!

HOLY GODDDAMN.

A HUUUUGE thank you to [livejournal.com profile] dream_mancer for getting me through the past twenty-four hours. I never could have finished this without your cheerleading ♥

And now, TO BED. (Oh man, I'm going to be SO tired at work tomorrow...)

jacyevans: (BIG BANG SAY WHAT?)
I have officially dropped out of [livejournal.com profile] sncross_bigbang. With all of the studying I'm going to be doing this week, I don't have a prayer for catching up.

However, I have recently caught my second wind on my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang fic, and it's not even one I was planning to write. I have just about 11,000 words right now.

Anyone think I can write another 9,000 words by May 1st?

I finally settled (I think) on a story for my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang. It's one I've been working on for... well, years, the one I almost dropped last year's idea for. I keep coming back to it and figured it was time to finally finish. I have an outline, including problems I've run into and ideas on how to fix them, so... I'm halfway there. Sort of (1/4 of the way word-wise).

What doesn't help is that for the past few days, I have been totally and completely exhausted for no reason whatsoever. I passed out at 9 last night (NINE! ON A SATURDAY!), and while I woke up a few times during the night, I still got a good amount of sleep. Besides writing, I still need to study for the GREs and keep applying for jobs, and the wireless connection at my job sucks. There's no where near by where I can sit on my lunch breaks and use the wireless (I miss Starbucks being 2 blocks away) so I have to do it all when I get home. That isn't until 5:30 most days, and by then, I'm so tired I don't want to do anything but veg out. I'm in bed by 10:30 most nights, and I have my usual daily stuff to do in between.

I'm also sucking on the losing weight front. I've gained 15 lbs, and going back to dieting and exercising this time around... not happening. I'm a stress eater, and the self-control is just not present.

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed right now.

So, I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang again this year. And [livejournal.com profile] sncross_bigbang. Because clearly, I like to flail around for deadlines.

Someone hold me?

(Did I mention I still have to finish my fic for [livejournal.com profile] apocabigbang? *headdesk* Two weeks and counting.)

I'm still as of yet undecided as to which fic I'm writing for both, which is making me a bit nervous, but I figure I'll wing it for a while, and then see which one I feel like I can do more with.

My ideas. Cut for those who don't want to read my insanity-induced ramblings. )

So, this is it. My second and final big bang.

This is my baby, the fic I've been working on for the better part of a year. I am ridiculously proud of it and hope that those of you who read it love it as much as I do :)

Title: Nothing As It Seemed
Author: [livejournal.com profile] jacyevans
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] vengefuldemon69
Pairings: Sam/Ava, Sam/Jessica
Genre: Het
Rating: R
Word Count: ~32,270
Warnings: Language, Angst, AU pre-series but plays fast and loose with some canon up to Season 4
Summary: Sam Winchester just wants to be normal. An acceptance letter to Stanford University gives Sam the escape he is looking for, hundreds of miles from the life he has grown up where to the outside world, he's always been a freak. Sam learns quickly that he can't run away from his past. A string of unexplainable deaths on campus trigger the terrifying visions he's been hiding from his family since he was a child and one of his new friends proves not all she appears to be. Ava has powers, too. And, if Sam would just trust her, she promises his powers will be far greater than he could ever imagine.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang 2010.

Maybe the only demons you’re chasing after are your own.

Never again.

Never fucking again.

One big bang is enough, and I went and signed up for two. AT ONCE. Because I am insane.

I am happy with what I accomplished, but seriously? NEVER. AGAIN. I don't think I've ever felt this rushed to finish a fic. Ever. And I almost forgot about the soundtrack, which seriously? Not good.

After June 14th (and that, that right there? *panics*), I swear to God, I am not touching fanfiction for at least a week. A month. And I don't even want to SEE the words big bang.

And you won't have to see them again in any of my entries, either until next year WHEN THERE WILL BE ONLY ONE.

Jesus Christ on a pogo stick...
