Giles/Xander

As usual, morning brings perspective

And kittens chewing on my nose. Sorry I whined last night.

Anyway, let's see. What's interesting in the world this morning? Watching the kitten fling herself at the dogs repeatedly, that's interesting! The dogs sometimes love this, sometimes ignore it, and sometimes show signs of distress. They got what they asked for, though: the Stupider Dog desperately wanted the kitten to play with him.

I got my cya_ficathon assignment. There are actually four assignments: one that's mandatory for Dec 1, and three that are optional. One of the optional ones is a crossover that makes me show my teeth in a predatory grin. The main assignment is also to my tastes (a pairing I enjoy writing; a setting that's one of my favorites). However, note due date. NaNoWriMo is going to interfere with this. I might have to write it this month so I can keep November clear for Giles and his long struggle with the Council.

I nearly didn't sign up for this, because the previous round was 100% Buffy/Angel. I am not a fan of Mr Broody McForehead, nor am I a fan of necrophilia. Earlier rounds did include more interesting characters, and produced little gems like mireille719's Second Guessing.

Just what I needed, huh? Another story to write! Because I didn't have enough of those.

*keeps blinking from seeing double*

I'm thinking you need to cut back on the assignments, lol. No need to snow yourself under in November. It'll be nuts enough as it is. :)

Have never heard the McForehead thing about Angel before, but *snerk*.
The kitten very thoughtfully double-posted for me! Nothing quite like a kitten sitting on your keyboard. Your nice warm obviously-fascinating-to-you laptop keyboard.
That's it! I want your kitten!!!!!!! And I don't like cats!

*suffers from kitten envy*

*pouts*
Oh, the life of a dog with a cat! :-)

Hugs, and happy writing this weekend.
Was going to comment on the double, figured little Mina had a paw in that. ;-)

Glad to know that a deep breath and sleep have helped some. But, don't apologize. Everyone needs to rant once in a while, and what better place than LJ, where you're friends can send hugs and support.

Can't wait to see what you write! I know it will be good!

*hugs*
I ended up with one mandatory assignment and one other. They are both vague enough that I think I can combine them and make one story from the two. They both asked for my favorite pairing and high rating (one wanted R or higher while the other wanted NC-17). Should be fun.
