In case my SCC peeps missed it over the weekend, our show is officially renewed for season 2, y'all! And though this article seems unclear, it's been reported over at [livejournal.com profile] the_other_reese that Brian Austin Green has in fact been made a series regular! (Like they could really do anything else?)

Has everyone heard?  It's looking pretty good for a Season 2 of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles!  *dance of joy*

Also, if you're here and reading this by way of recent fic, or you just happened to stumble across this journal while also liking the show and also happen to ship Derek/Sarah, there are perhaps two communities you should know about: [profile] scc_dereksarah is all about Derek/Sarah, but so far I've noticed fic is (occasionally) still showing up in the more general communities, but few things are being posted here yet.  Come!  Join!  Play!  Please.  We so need more fic and things for this pairing.  Also [profile] the_other_reese is all about Derek, and also a newer community that could use people posting and playing.

*sigh* 

This is like back in the days of yore, when I discovered Sarkney and there was literally no fic for the pairing yet.  Sure, by mid-season 2 fandom had developed quite a little sub-following of Sark and Sarkney fans, and fic started popping up everywhere.  But when I was first really really into the fandom and the pairing, there was, uh, Rach's Technicolor Splendor, 14 Days and my Illusions.  That was it, except for some really terrible rape fic on the Pit of- FF.net.  A few more lovely people wrote soon some good stuff, which brought the grand total to like five or six fic.  (No, really!  This is totally not an exaggeraion!)  And it really sucked having nothing new to read!  You ended up either re-reading things a billion times, or reading the most horrible thing imaginable in the HOPE it might have some glimmer of characterization.  

Anyway, this reminds me of that!  Fandom in its wee baby beginning stages!  I want to just skip past all that, find all the people who are going to fall in love with this pairing, and get them to write stuff now!  Maybe there is more stuff out there than I'm currently aware of?  I don't think so, though, because I've been pretty obsessive thorough in my search.  Who knows when we'll get new episodes, and fic is an excellent way to pass the time until then!  I mean, here I am on a Saturday night, the husband is busy with his Xbox, and I could be reading fic.  Instead I am writing this post and sipping a vodka collins and wondering in a sort of depressed way what I should do with myself this evening that counts as 'down time' - meaning no writing, jewelry making, or other things that qualify in any sense as 'work'. 

I suppose I shall have to curl up with a book, which isn't all bad, though nothing in my current "to read" pile is is really a siren call at the moment. 

If you know of some good SCC Sarah or Derek or Sarah/Derek tht hasn't already been linked on [profile] scc_fic, link me, K?

Today I have:

~ actually deleted a few of my icons. I almost never do this. I keep thinking "but I'll probably use that one again some day".
~ added a bunch of Sarah, Derek, and Sarah/Derek icons to the repertoire. I also need at least one good Cameron icon, and some Sarah-John and Derek-John, but I haven't gotten around to finding those yet.
~ contemplated changing my layout for the first time in something like three years! It's time, and what better time to choose than when I'm O/C-ing on my latest fandom show crush?
~ friended various and sundry people for the sole purpose of expanding my f-list with more SCC fandom folks.

See a theme yet? Yeah. I haven't fallen this hard for a show since Alias. I thought for awhile maybe I'd grown out of it - (you know, I'm in my thirties. I'm too mature for all that fandom stuff now. U-huh.) I know, I know. I keep saying variations on the same thing. But you see, this is what happens when Rhien finds something new to obsess about. I warn you in my user profile before you ever friend me.

(So you understand the seriousness - I am even contemplating attending a fan Con if/when one ever takes place, if/when show is renewed/becomes scary popular with a fan following as good SF shows are wont to do. I've thought about getting to meet Summer Glau in the autograph line or whatever and telling her how awesome she was in Firefly, and how I still miss that show even though she is also good in this. I know, my mind is a strange place. But mostly the fan Con thing would be to meet other SCC fans and squee in person together! If, you know, one ever happens that wouldn't cost astronomical amounts of money to attend.)

I am sure this means more fic will be produced in the future, although I am telling myself I am not allowed to write more until I have completed at least three more chapters on space pirates. Or more. Book first, fic later.

Feedback is, of course, appreciated and generally adored.  :-)

If you haven't yet read Part 1, please do so here, or Part 2 won't make much sense.

As usual, this thing is too damn long to fit in a single LJ entry.  I've waffled a bit with how to post it, but for now, I think I'll break it down into two entries. 



On to Part 2.
rhienelleth: (derek/sarah)
Whoo-hoo, finished! And it's off to the beta for review.

It ultimately clocked in at just under 10K - is anyone really surprised? I know I shouldn't be. Me and wordcount estimates always run short.

I gotta say I'm pretty damn pleased with myself on this one. Plenty of angst to open the door for future fics, and since we have no idea when or if the show will be renewed and new episodes will be airing, that was important. Heh. :-)

And the one scene that was troubling me? Really wrapped up nicely. I think I finally found the characters in the right mental/emotional voice for that scene as things stand in the series now. Sure, after this things might change subtly in future fic. Emotions and reactions will be shaped by events in this fic. But for right now, I had to keep them as close as possible to what we've already seen on the show. I think I managed that, but beta response will tell me if I didn't.

Anyway, I'm feeling very accomplished right now. I'm off to go goof off with some jewelry related things. :-)
rhienelleth: (derek/sarah)
4500 words of fic today (in addition to the 1200 or so words already written), and I still have one major scene left.  But it will be finished tomorrow morning at the latest, and off to whosoever I can beg, bribe, or barter into beta reading for it. 

I don't know, guys.  I'm pretty sure Derek Reese has restored my love of fandom and fanfic.  I don't even have the words to express my love for this character.  Sure, I've written things since Alias, but Sark was always still my guy, you know?  I can see myself doing drabble requests for Derek.  I haven't done that, really, since Sark.. 

I need to friend some more SCC people.  Because there have to be more people than [profile] mspooh, [personal profile] morwen_peredhil,
[personal profile] crankylex, [personal profile] fatema, [personal profile] the_grynne and myself who love this show.

I don't know, maybe I'm late to the party and everyone else has already figured this out, but upon repetitive viewing, I've noticed something in the Sarah Connor Chronicles finale. 
See, repeated obsessive viewing is a good thing. :)

And if a bunch of you already know this and are like "Well, duh, Rhien!"  then...I'm just slow. :-)
rhienelleth: (derek/sarah)
Dude, I do not get it.  Where is all the Sarah/Derek?  Where is all the fic, heck, where are the videos, even??  There is more Cameron/Derek out there, which absolutely stuns me!  Okay, far be it from me to dog another ship - I often ship unpopular pairings myself - but really, i makes no sense to me that more C/D is being posted than S/D.  *grumbles*

I have no recourse but to work on my own fic, instead of reading someone else's.  It's Saturday night!  I've been drinking, people!  One should never try to write on three glasses of wine, as ecidenced by the sheer number of typing corrections I've had to make in the last paragraph alone!  Plus, my bluetooth mouse has mysteriously stopped working, leaving me to muddle along with my trackpad.

There is no justice, I tell you.

(On an unrelated note, I made out like a friggin' bandit at the bead show today.  Without realizing it, I slipped past the guards and into the wholesale only section, for which one is supposed to have permission or something.  Seriously, I had no idea until my friend Paula called me becuse she couldn't figure out where I'd disappeared to.  I never even saw the 'guards' posted, and no one said a word to me.  DUDE.  If not for the cat, I'd've spent much more.  Alas.)

Catching up on some of my TV: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Is this renewed yet?

Derek Reese is frelling hot. Sarah/Derek recs, anyone?
