Had a pretty good day today, sitting in the sun. I don't understand what's going on - the second bank holiday in a row with good weather. Most unlike this country.

Unfortunately, when I spend the day lazing in the sun, I don;t spend it writing, because I can't see me laptop or phone outside and paper writing tends to be a chore to retype - yeah I'm lazy - so instead of writing I read. I'm about 2/3 of the way through The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of Of The Window And Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson, which I picked purely because the title was awesome and I'm really enjoying. But I've still got this Grimm body swap story stuck in my head, so I think I'm definitely going to have to write it. I've got a few ideas. The problem, is, something like that it'd be tough to do a short one and I don't want to risk another unfinished WIP, though I still maintain that I'll finish those Lost Boys fics.

Not now though, for any of them/. I'm practically falling asleep at the keyboard. Bedtime, I think..!

I'm so glad I'm off work this week, not being would have meant staying off of all my usual sites all day until I could watch it this evening. But luckily, I'm free to slob about and watch TV online while eating cold pizza and drinking as much caffeine as I can to counteract the effects of the terrible night's sleep I had last night. Seriously, I was still awake at 3am this morning, and then I woke up at 8.30 and couldn't get back to sleep. Rubbish. But anyway...

Here be spoilers )

Want next season NOW!!!

Okay, random plot bunny attack. Grimm body swap fic! Monroe and Nick preferably. I don't know if I could pull it off though, I wonder if someone else has already done it..!

*Goes off to search...*

Edit
Nope, doesn't appear to exist. I've promoted it in the kinkmeme.

If there is a character in a series who hasn't been given a first name, how do you handle that in fanfic? If, for example you are writing him in a scene where there is a need for someone to use his other name, what do you do? Write around it somehow, which can lead to the story sounding unnatural? Or just use the surname, which may have the same problem? Or is it acceptable to give the character a name? Personally, I don't like that idea, mostly because it doesn't seem right to name somebody else's creation, but also becuase if at some point he gets given a name, your story is going to sound odd.

Maybe the easiest thing to do is not to write it.

If anyone is wondering, I'm talking about Sergeant Wu from Grimm, and I'm not actually writing anything yet, it's just a theoretical question at the moment.

I just got in from a night babysitting my niece. It was a practise shift ready for when my mum's on holiday (she and my dad are going to Hawaii - so unfair!) and I have to do it. Poppy is hilarious. As a delaying tactic so she didn't have to get in the bath, she went through my entire bag, investigated each and every thing, demanded I open my purse so she could count my money, then declared that all the coins were going in her money box. Then she opened my eyeshadow and applied it to her cheeks. And to mine. It's purple and shiny, we looked a bit weird. But she went to bed more easily than I expected, once I'd figured out how to put a nappy on (yeah, I'm genuinely that useless).

I took my computer with me, Hoping to write a bit. I have this idea for a Grimm fic, very silly, where Monroe kind of thinks of Nick as a pet. But I was tired and headachy, so I just watched my Grimm DVDs all night. Got through five episodes, including one I'd missed and one that I must have either not being paying attention too or I fell asleep during, because I only remembered about 25% of it. That or I was drunk the first time. Entirely possible.

Talking of, is it me or does Monroe drink an awful lot? I mean, not for a normal person but for someone in an American prime time show. I think every episode he's offering Nick beer or wine or even eggnog. Or just sitting around drinking at home. It's pretty cool really. Makes him seem more normal, somehow.

I feel a bit bad for jumping fandoms. I really do intend to write more Lost Boys fics, but this Grimm think kind of snuck up in me unexpectedly. But it's nice to have inspiration to write again, because no matter how much I said I wanted to, I found that nothing I wrote for LB worked out, not for months. Maybe a holiday in another fandom will wake the muse up.

Anyway, off work now for two weeks now, which is awesome, as long as my brother stays more or less sane. Fingers crossed.

Alrighty, so, season 1 DVD ordered (Amazon marketplace as actual Amazon was charging an extortionate £26.52 and someone was selling it brand new on Marketplace for £12.17). Icon made (Monroe, because he's awesome), and fic partially written. It's terrible, I'll try to make it better tomorrow. This new obsession is well on the way. It's so strange how they strike unexpectedly from nowhere.

Oh dear, I seem to have a new TV obsession looming. Hello Grimm, it's fic writing, icon making, old episode watching time. Just in time for me two weeks off work too! Off I go to buy the first season DVD...

Funny, I almost gave up watching it about three episodes in.
