the random post just because. And Steve Earle is a fearlessly independent human being.  
1. So today I was at this record store and they had more or less near each other Chinese Democracy and The Songs of Pete Seeger vol II featuring a cover by Steve Earle. Guess what I bought, same price?

2. And then there's the mini bio inside and they say that determined to be his own man, Steve Earle has walked through his personal and professional fire and emerged as a fearlessly independent musician and human being. Seriously, that's awesome. Apart from the fact that is true, but still. I love Steve Earle. I seriously do. And that record is all kinds of awesome.

3. Also, Lucinda Williams' new record is all kinds of awesome too. She sings with Elvis Costello and covers AC/DC! That woman is so made of winning material.

4. God, whoever did the whole angels hierarchy for Supernatural should go back to Sunday school ASAP. (the fan mix kinda became a fic mix. That's why I'm going crazy over it. But I think I'll be gladly ignoring the whole thing or I'll go crazy.)

5. I passed 35000 words. Maybe I'm actually finishing that thing. But I need to hit 40000 tomorrow evening.

6. Ouch, I was so hoping to see Rachel Getting Married in English and of course it isn't in either of the original language cinemas here *sigh*. Even if of course there's Twilight. Guess you can't have anything. (by the way, it's just that I don't care about Twilight.)

7. So the only effect that the new Lost promo had was making me want to write Jack/Sayid. And since when I'm done with the novel I need to get on the Lost Hohoho assignment (but I think I'll be quick on that, I have it plotted out already) and on that time travel bunny before any other promo destroys it and I have one week of pauses between lectures at university during which it's pointless to go to the library (I'm talking of twenty minutes spans of time) or try to read anything..

Poll #1302384 What do I try to write during the next week when I'm not home?

Uhm, pick? I can't decide.

'regular' Boone/Claire (pretty angst, though, and he'd be dead and she'd be whatever she is now, so figure that out)
a Boone/Shannon/Claire thing ending on the half-sweet Boone/Claire note that isn't exactly making me comfortable but won't go away from my head
post O6 return-to-the-island Jack/Sawyer thing that won't go away, either
S5 Jack/Sayid from what was in the latest promo
finishing a Frank centric thing that is sitting in my notebook since three months
some Nirvana!Jack character study I've been wanting to do before he shaves in canon

And for tonight it'd be all.

All of your picks sounds good, I could only narrow my choices to four. I am hoping Rachel Get Married stays in the theatre a little longer so I can catch it. I'm hoping my best friend does not ask me to see Twilight with her!

Great work on NaNo!

Rachel was out yesterday here, but I need to hurry up because they give it just in four places three of which kinda out of reach. And thankfully I don't know anyone who reads Twilight, but I hope you don't have to stand that *shudders*. Thank you!

I'm intrigued by the idea of Boone/Claire (alive or undead!). Well, both characters were cute little hippies in S1 so that could work nicely. I always like your Boone fics the best!

I kind of like the pairing, too, except that by all means they should be all nice and cute and PG13 and all the ideas I get are either dark or disturbing. WTF? But I'm writing that sooner or later. Thank you!

Well, since I already had the B/S/C thing started and I was wondering whether someone would even read it and it looks like at least two people would I might finish that first before having Jack and Sawyer out of my way before it starts making my head hurt. And I'm writing the Boone/Claire one sooner or later, too. Hey, it's a runner-up.

[and come on, you know you want Jack with the beard angsting over Janis Joplin, don't you? No?] Seriously, thanks for the input. ;)

wait. It was Jack vs Sayid in the promo, after all? I thought it was him fighting Sayid, but I ended up being not so sure...

Anyway, of course I'm choosing the Jack ones - with Sawyer or Sayid, both are okay with me.

By the way... you could also add to your choices an update of the J/S fic where Sawyer has amnesia... I loved that one! :)

It was Sayid vs other guy first and then Sayid vs Jack after, but someone on Darkufo had a nice theory and I wanted to give that a try ;)

I swear that finishing those series is my New Year's project. I need to go and write it all straight or otherwise I won't ever manage to finish it, so when I'm done with both Nano and the Lost Hohoho assignment I'm definitely going on with that. I feel so bad for leaving it there, I need to finish it. I really do. I swear, first thing I do in January ;)
