...but I'm possibly going to download that photo editing software just as soon as I decide whether the free online one my dad recommended is any good.

So, I was so close to finishing the series, I watched eps 9-13 today, but I was like six minutes from the end of the last episode and my dad came home from the pub. Yeah I know that's not a major problem, but it kinda is, for two reasons. Firstly, he's still back on episode 3 and I don't want him to watch the end of the last one yet(!) and secondly I've not mentioned that I've binged the entire series because when TV obsessions hit, he tends to be a bit of an ass about it.

So before I go to bed, I'm going to watch the last six minutes of that episode, but then having watched the full series I'm going to have two urges, The first and strongest will be to write a load of fic, and the second will be to start the series again from the beginning. Though, I might watch it in German or Spanish the second time around, just for the hell of it. I love that feature on Netflix. The re-watching obviously won't happen today, but the fic... well I'm at work tomorrow but I only have so much self control, you know..?

I'm neglecting my Lost Boys fics. And I have new chapters of stories that I haven't read yet. I feel a bit bad about that. Tomorrow I;m definitely going to read and post some reviews of them.

In completely unrelated news, I got my 6th Audible token today. since I downgraded my subscription, that is the most I can have at any one time, so I really need to buy something and I can't find anything right now that sounds interesting because literally all I want to do is read Daredevil fanfic and before that all I was doing was reading and writing Lost Boys fanfic. I'm just gonna have to choose something random I guess.

So I just tried with a picture of the Frog brothers from the original movie, and it said Edgar was 18 and Alan 29. Slightly inaccurate.

I'm going through a bad writing phase. I'm trying to write the Enemy, despite constant interruptions from an as yet unnamed new one-shot, but it just feels so wooden. Even as I write it, and especially when I read it back. I don't know why. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I just keep telling myself first drafts of everything always suck. It'll be better when I edit. Hopefully...

Title: Proxy
Author: Prepare4trouble
Warnings: AU
Characters: Edgar Frog, Alan Frog, Sam Emerson
Spoilers: None
Synopsis: Alan was dying. Edgar had no choice.
Notes: This is an odd little fic, I'll tell you that before you read it. We all know how Alan becomes a vampire in the films and the comics, but this is an alternate Alan turns story. Please let me know what you think, you wouldn't believe how long I've debated over writing this, and then over posting it. I'd love to know people's opinions, good or bad.

My sister and my niece are staying over tonight because her husband is doing some kind of overnight fishing trip. As a result, we ended up watching a film, which upset my brother who wanted to watch Game Of Thrones, and we ended up having a mini argument about it. He lost, because Jen was only here for one night and it wouldn't have been fair. So, we watched Divergent, which wasn't as bad as I expected, and drank a few bottles of wine, which is fine because I'm not at work tomorrow.

Writing is progressing, slowly but surely. I'm going to predict four chapters left, but there may be five or more, or maybe even three, it all depends how it goes. I do feel like I'm kind of getting somewhere now though. What I'm not sure about though is what I've done to Alan. But We'll see how it goes down...

Anyway, exhausted now, so time for bed, I think. I'll try and get a chapter poster tomorrow or the day after. We'll see how that goes...

I've had an evil idea. Should I write it?

It's kind of AU. Like, if Alan still got turned into a vampire, but it happened in a different way. I don't want to give too much away in case I do write it. But lets just say that Edgar is responsible.

Um...I think I'm just going to give it a go and see how it comes out.

The Enemy woes...

I'm getting dangerously close to finishing the Enemy. This is a story that I started writing early in 2011, over four years ago. I've written it over two laptops, three iPhones, an iPad and countless scraps of paper, while in at least three different countries. I've invested a lot of time and love into it, and I really really don't want the ending to be bad.

I think I've got three more chapters to go, maybe four, depending on how it pans out. I know, vaguely, what I want to happen, but it's piecing what I have written over the past four years (and that is literally, I've just pasted an edited version of something I wrote back in 2011 into the chapter I'm working on now) together into a coherent whole, not missing out anything important and finishing well. It's difficult.

I had the same problem with Talented, which was a story of a similar length, though I wrote it in under a year. Ending it was really difficult. I'm happy with what I did though, and hopefully a few years down the line I'll be able to say the same about the Enemy.

Here's hoping...

I took me mission to discover which is the older Frog brother of FaceBook and Twitter. I got one of each opinion on Facebook, and on Twitter Jamison Newlander replied (seriously!) but he doesn't know the answer.

I've always thought Edgar, but now I have this image in my head of Alan suddenly getting all protective big brother when something happens to Edgar. Fic may have to be written.

Look! Reply from Jamison! It's head Frog though, not lead, but close enough! ;)
prepare4trouble: (aaagh)
I've seen it both ways in fic. I can't decide which is better. I've always written Edgar as the older brother, just because he appears to be in charge, and he's Head Frog. But I've seen some where Alan is older, but Edgar's personality places him in the leader role even though he's the younger sibling. I think I like it that way, actually. It adds a new layer of depth to the characters.

I've just had an idea for a Lost Boys fic. I think it's good, but it's been a long time... I think I'll see how I feel about it in the morning. Watch this space.

Also, when talking about good films to a guy at work the other day, he said a film he thought I wouldn't have heard of. It was the Lost Boys. I had to laugh out loud, literally. I've informed him about the sequels. And Reign of Frogs. And the fact that I've written in excess of 30 fics. He was surprised. Also, the fool thought that Michael was the main character and was shocked at the prospect of sequels without him. I laughed again.

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.

The last two days while driving home from work, I've seen this kid on his bike on Chants Ave. He's maybe 14-15 and wears a camouflage jacket and - get this - a beret. Seriously, he's so Alan Frog, and I doubt he's trying to be. Or even if he is, its awesome.

I need to write more Lost Boys fic...
