Other things that get to happen now that I can see:
1. I'm getting a haircut on Saturday, and now I can actually watch it happen! You natural seers don't know- used to be I had my glasses off for the duration of every haircut, which meant all I saw was a me-colored blob and I could only sit there hoping everything was going okay until it was done. So, no more of that nonsense! Not that I expect the experience to be anything revelatory, but still.
2. Once RenFest comes around again, I'm gonna buy me a mask. One of those fancy leather ones that look like a leaf or something, I'm not sure yet. Masks have not been part of my life in any meaningful way so far. I remember one Halloween trying to wear a mask as part of a skeleton costume... I doubt it stayed on over the glasses for more than half an hour. But now? Bring 'em on!

Okay, enough extolling the glory of 20/20 vision. Been a bit since I did one of these! 10 - Pairings – Have you ever gone outside your comfort zone and written a pairing you liked, but found you couldn't write, or a pairing you didn't like, and found you could?

Umm, well, there was that one time a meme asked for Mal/Granny Weatherwax. I chickened out of that one pretty hard. Otherwise, there was another meme fic that was supposed have Mal and the Doctor kiss. That was a bit tough, as I find it really hard to slash Mal with anyone, it just doesn't work for some reason. Nonetheless, I stapled the plot onto an earlier one-shot I wrote and then poured a bunch of alcohol down the guys' throats, and it worked out fine.

I'm trying to think of a pairing I tried to write but failed. I guess there have been some Plaude fics that turned gen when I didn't specifically mean them to be. But, y'know, it doesn't have to be all about the romance all the time. Sometimes I do feel a bit guilty for being so pairing-focused in my fandom activities. But, even then, I don't go after certain pairings just because I think they're hot together or whatever. I go after them because I like the characters and the way they interact with each other. If that interaction happens to be R-rated sometimes, well, I gotta get my kicks somehow, right?

You know, I keep thinking about those meme fics I used to do... turns out I haven't done one since freaking 2010! And I had such fun with them! Seriously, some of my favorite pieces are little <1000-words meme fics. So, if anyone out there is interested, if you've been playing along the last little while you have a very good idea what fandoms are available...

Give me (at least) two characters from different fandoms that you know I'm familiar with and I'll give you a dialogue happening between the two of them. Without justifying how the crossover would work, how their worlds clashed, or how they could even meet each other. Just a silly crossover conversation with no backstory, for fun.

Contacts? Awesome.

Mostly, I'm just here to comment on your music. Caro Emerald is freaking FANTASTIC and "A Night Like This" is one of my favorite tracks.

Mal/Doctor sounds weird but hot, like it would take me a minute to wrap my head around it, but I could totally get on board with it. Mal/Granny Weatherwax sounds intimidating---I can see why you didn't go through with it.

Not contacts. LASIK.

Hee, yeah, I heard "A Night Like This" on a movie preview and was pretty much like, "YES PLEASE." I've grabbed five other tracks off that album.

They're so similar, Mal and the Doctor. At least, post-Time War!Doctor, with the PTSD and the ironclad survival instinct. And also the tendency to value intelligence over brute strength, and the serious issues with authority. I'm not even going near Mal/Granny again.

LUCKY! You don't have to mess with little lenses. Either way, it's so much easier than glasses---a lot less to clean.

I had a similar thing happen. I found "Absolutely Me" on a Greek mythology-related fanmix, looked it up on iTunes, and added some five other songs, too. I really, really love "Just One Dance" and "The Other Woman". They're just so sultry and retreaux and GAH!

Yeah, they really are similar. I think Mal might fit best with Nine or Eleven, out of the New!Who Doctors at least. Haha! Some pairings aren't meant to be.

I tried contacts once, for a few hours, when I was like thirteen. Didn't work out well.

Oh man, "Just One Dance" gives me all these AU feels I really can't be having right now...

Mal and Nine are pretty much perfect, I think Eleven might be a little too goofy. But Nine and Mal can commiserate on things and the non-smoothness of how they go and whatnot.
