Don't make me write another poll

I'm backing up my Macbook right now because [complicated story involving having to repartition the disk with the GUID scheme so I can install Leopard]. I figured I've got a brief interlude between fic deadlines, so I can afford to be without my Mac for a day or so. (The backup process is going to take 6 hours.)

Things I have done while without my writing computer:
- finishing the Telecaster (as soon as Mr P figures out where I screwed up the wiring, the guitar is done, and it is gorgeous)
- storing my for-trade BPAL in one of the plastic boxes the pickups came in
- doing laundry (never-ending)
- cleaning the kitchen (never-ending)
- refraining from playing WOW (one day at a time)
- napping (if only I could do more)

So! I am writing my own angsty Giles/Spike prompt for the hurt/comfort fest due at the end of the month. There are lots of unclaimed prompts, you'll notice, and a few days that won't have so many fics posted. Here are the dates that need more:

April 28 (Giles/Xander) [claimed: G/X post-Grave]
May 1 (Crossovers and Giles/Joyce) [claimed: Giles/Snape post-Gift]
May 2 (Giles/Ethan and Giles/Anya) [claimed: G/E post-Grave]
May 3 (Giles/Wes, Giles/other) [claimed: G/Wes post-Connor]

Tonight only! First-come first-served! Pick one prompt from each of those four days and I'll write it. (Er, not the Life on Mars prompt because I am only vaguely aware of what LoM is. Enthusiastic explanations in the comments welcome!) Probably it'll get a shorter response, 1500 words or something. I kinda enjoyed that ficspam thing I did in November, and would love to do it again.

  • Whoops

    24,000 words already in the demonic-transformation soulbonding wingfic. And I am still working out the main bloody conflict plot thingie. Oh crap.

  • Oh, right.

    It occurs to me that I'd better start working on my Summer of Giles story now, hadn't I, given the pace at which I write these days. I know what I'm…

    Today's not my birthday, nor is it penwiper26's, no matter what LJ is telling you. What an odd bug to have, after all these years. Today…
