Giles/Ethan friends

Neutrinos "sleet". How come they never "rain" or "speed" or "stroll"?

Am at the house of nemaihne, having fed and watered her kittehs while she and Mr N are away watching motorcycles go very fast at Laguna Seca. The kitties are not choosing to show themselves to me at the moment, though I think if I sit here for a while they'll come out of hiding. I had a chat with Kitten M yesterday. She yelled at me a bunch, then shoved her head into my shoe.

Mr P was up until 3am finishing HP7. He reports satisfaction, though he has a few quibbles with small points.

Three stories in progress:
+ Poll-winning WIP continuation.
+ Another response to the flist prompt "deeply emotional, weirdly intellectual Giles/Buffy raunch, with hurt/comfort and mild kinkiness", this time in a new setting
+ A rather nasty piece of Giles/Ethan smut. Nasty in that Ethan is being the sadistic bastard whom Giles so enjoyed beating the tar out of years later; not so much nasty in smut terms. It's an inflection point in their relationship, though of course Giles doesn't realize it going in.
+ One of the other WIPs.
+ An extremely schmoopy Cloud Animals future story idea. Will indulge self and write it soon.

I lied. Five. Though I'm not really working on the last two. Yes, I appear to be in the "ideas sleeting through my head like neutrinos" phase of the writerly manic/depressive cycle.

But I am attempting to concentrate on the much-requested continuation. 2000 words written, and ticking. Have been doing some reading in preparation. Am going to be mean to a character I like, and kind to a character I often dislike.

Can I just say that I love the Buffy of that story? She's not a genius but she's sweet and earnest and focused on doing the right thing. And she is letting herself love the people around her. I'd forgotten what a sweetie she is.

The Giles/Ethan is Blackmailverse backstory. But I'm not counting it as part of the overall story. It's... sometimes I write entire stories as character sketches for longer things. I don't always post them. This might be one of those.

With Reconnection, I'm trying to get a draft finished in a week. Time to sprint, if I can.
Uh, yeah, seeing as my day at SoG rapidly approaches. It's okay, I understand, RL interrupts and such.
Many, many thanks for CatWatch 2007 and for blogging so I know they have someone there to ignore. :) Hope you managed to get at least one of these stories chipped away at while you were hanging.
Was the race fun? I read that Stoner dominated the weekend: practice, qualifying, pole, and race. He's gonna run away with it if Rossi doesn't wake up...
You know, it was laid back after a little action on the first lap. The whole weekend was laid back although still quite fun and infinite magnitudes better than the ordeal of last year.
But this is off-topic, so how about we continue it at a restaurant so Mr N and I can thank you for fostering our children this weekend.
Let's do that thing. I think we should have your people (T) talk to my people (D) and arrange it for us.
