Watson likely stories

Oh noes! You're going to make me drop and give you twenty BG stories, aren't you.

Pushup count this morning: 13.
Pushup count on last trial: 4.
This morning's were quality pushups, too, body flat, going down much deeper than last time. Much better range of motion. I credit the TRX chest presses for that, because they let me work out with the full proper pushup motion.

My handy-dandy fic archive web site generator is kinda swell these days. I abstracted all the page generation stuff the other day, so I can build the dirty-pages list more flexibly. Upshot is that I don't regen the latest-stories page and the atom feed unless it's really changed. Also, if I change a template, everything that uses that template rebuilds. Gnee! Gnee!

Still completely unusable by other human beings, but the generalizations are moving it in the right direction. The method of getting stories into the db is still kludgy; I'm comfortable enough with it that I haven't had a major incentive to write a new one. This is where many hobby programming projects stall out, of course. Another place: I keep thinking that I should rewrite in Ruby/Merb instead of Python/Pylons for deployment reasons. Why do all the Python web app frameworks suck? Why does Ruby itself suck, thus making the goodness of Merb + Datamapper irrelevant?

This is not the kind of dithering that leads to finished projects. At least I'm still happy with the overall approach: a web app injects content into a database, then generates the site as a set of static pages. Static pages are cheap to serve in a number of ways.

Memey question for you today, spotted all over the flist: If you could force me to write anything, what would it be?

Not I!

I think I would force you to either fork over the second half of "Partners" or my tag-fic.
I'd have you finish more of your stories. Sure, I'd prefer if they were the BG ones first, but they seem to interest you less than the GX pieces. S'okay. I can be patient.
The BG ones interest me too much. Succeeding at them has become too important, so I freeze. Ironic, eh?
I'd probably make you finish at least ONE of your WIPs or at least write the next part. Arc Draconis or Reconnection.
If you could force me to write anything, what would it be?

Anything? With your talent for kink, I'd love to see you write some Giles/Wes D/s fic. But I have kind of a one-track mind that way.

More reasonably, more of Blackmail or Tradition & Protocol. Or, leaving the kink aside entirely, more of the Displaced Watcher stories would be delightful. Those are definitely my three favorite series of yours.

I am very envious of your physical fitness progress.
More Blackmail is in progress. I need some free brain cycles to finish it off. I might finish a bunch of chapters for it all at once, in fact.
How about...my big bang story...for me. Cause let's face it, my B/G is only going to be a pale imitation of yours.
Oh, bah! You've got a story in you. Probably a whole lot of stories. And they're yours, unique to you. Stories nobody else can tell. Now you just have to do the work of telling them. There's no getting around the slogging work part of it, alas, but it's worth it. Go forth! Tell a BG story that nobody else can!
