10 years ago today I posted my first Alex/Lorelai fic.

Time's a goon, right?

Fuuuuuuuuuck.


I was speaking to somebody recently about Buffy, and she was like, oh yeah, that's that show that was too grown up for me, I was 5 when it aired.

The other day I found myself commenting about a celebrity, "She's only 26! She's so young!"

Jesus F. Christ indeed.

Oh I can do worse than that. I was watching Gotham and there's this character called Silver, who is a young charactger in the show, but I was crushing on the actress because I thought, surely she's older than the 16/17 year old she's portraying.

So i looked her up, and nope, she is actually 16 I think. (NO SIXTEEN YEAR OLD SHOULD HAVE BOOBS THAT SPECTACULAR!) And I felt like a dirty dirty man.

I still remember it fondly! Sometimes I think about it and want to reread, but it's always while I'm doing something completely non-conducive to fic reading.

Thanks! I'm amazed/flattered that people still remember it exists!

Wow.

Your Alex/Lorelai fics are still one of my favorite pairings and various universes.

Awww, thank you! A long time ago, I did try to make a timeline of sorts for my Alex/Lorelai fics (at least the Claire 'verse) but it proved to be pretty fucking impossible.

How are the minions? They must be all grown up and ready for hard labor now.

AWESOME. I read my first Cynicfic in 2007, which is exceedingly scary. I watched an episode of GG today and thought of your fic! Ha!

Thank you! Which episode was it? Did you hear there might be a reunion movie or something of the sort? I wonder how they will pull it off with Lauren Graham and Scott Patterson hating each other's guts and Edward Herrmann having passed away.

It was "Eight O'Clock At the Oasis" which is still for some reason one of my favourite episodes; I think it has to do with the Cardio Salsa at the beginning. Also season three, happy times. I heard something about a Netflix revival, but I don't know whether to trust such rumours. I can't imagine how that would work either. I just hope they don't bring back Dean.

Sigh, I'm feeling this today, because I've been like, these youths don't understand what fandom is supposed to be! They seem to think it's all about the shows, that the end goal is mediocre 'representation'. Fuck that. None of them can write for shit. What happened to creativity? To unexpected ideas? To crack worthy of the name?

So, I ended up here. :D

HEY IT'S YOU!!!  How've you been? 


Jesus,  I'm so old that I stopped watching TV altogether.  No idea what's going on in fandom now.  Last I checked,  there were lesbians on Once Upon a Time? 


Paget is returning to CM for a couple if episodes this season. Goddamn I may have ti watch that shitfest.


Youths are just annoying.  Especially teenagers and people in their early 20s.  They shouldn't ve allowed to speak or make decisions.

Hey you! :D

Eh, I'm all right, just trying to get out of grad school--no one told me getting out was harder than getting in. I keep getting stuck teaching those annoying youths, though the joke is, this semester I get to teach them how to give speeches. My entire job is listening to their opinions. *sigh* (Also, how did I end up teaching this? I'm like a weird moonlighting instructor--give me a class, and I will teach it, no background knowledge necessary.)

Did you hear? They hired Paget back as a regular! I really haven't watched/thought about CM for years, but if people are talking about it again, maybe I could write fic for it again. My fic writing ability has died recently. I go back and read my old stuff and think--who wrote this? this is good! I could never write that now.

I hope things are going okay for you right now. Missed you. :)

Yeah, I've heard that about grad school. That's possibly the only good thing about law school; it ends, so indentured servitude can begin. I can't believe youths these days were born in the 2000s. When I was a teenager. I don't even recall being that young and I certainly don't recall being allowed to have "opinions."

I didn't know re Paget, but then I googled it and I was all, WTF THOMAS GIBSON. I won't miss him. I haven't watched since Paget left aside from the few episodes in which she guest starred. I am not sure if she is worth the effort of downloading CM weekly again and watching and actually, like, paying attention to something that is not my client's latest drama about her husband keeping their son's pencil cases when he goes to stay with Dad and she's bought about 5 pencil cases already.

Oh god, I have to take a parental coordinator training course in November, which means I learn how to politely, verbally bitchslap these people into parenting their children like decent human beings. Like, take the damn pencil case before you let the kid go to Dad's, then YOU WILL HAVE ALL THE PENCIL CASES YOU WANT IN THE WORLD, Jesus fucking christ.

I haven't written non-work related things in years. Bad arm. General exhaustion from life. I totally get your feeling about reading old fic and being surprised at having written it. I definitely cannot write remotely as well as I did in 2006/2007. It's a combination of lack of practice, lack of inspiration, and just the lack of being young and willing to indulge in the crack and not being bogged down by earning a living and sorting out people's children's pencil cases.

Things swing back and forth for me, had a little rough patch the last 2 weeks, so giving myself a break by going to Singapore for a few days. I'm not afraid of a little Zika virus. The Zika virus should be afraid of ME.

Do you have Facebook or Gchat or whatever the kids use these days to communicate electronically? Because I rarely check LJ these days, everyone has left, but tumblr is too image heavy for me.

Oh man, you have all the absurd drama in your own life, don't you. Politeness is overrated.

Soo, I was hanging around on tumblr the other day and I saw a cap from the new Gilmore Girls resurgence, or whatever, with a tag underneath saying something to the effect of #but where is Claire? And I had to interrogate this person to make sure it was Alex-Claire, and it was, and then there was a little fangirling.
(And then I watched 6 eps in a row and had a weird dream about contacting you via's livejournal new vocal chat feature.)

Anyways, yes! Gchat. I'm at zaupuppy @ gmail . com. Chat me any time!

Hope you have/had fun in Singapore!

(I feel like the only time Chad Michael Murray wasn't typecast as himself was when he was Lucas on One Tree Hill, and he brought a great aura of douchebaggery to that one too)
