Down but looking up  
SGA page updated with the latest episode.

Still somewhat pissed that canon ruined the premise of my epic. Although it was rather likely, writing fic in a fandom when only having seen half of the 1st season, there is a lot we don't know about the characters. There is something to be said for fandoms with a finite canon such as most books, movies and cancelled shows. I don't really feel like writing the epic now since it's a total AU. I mean I have the first and last part written already and a bit of the second part. The last part isn't postable, it has an unhappy ending and you know it from the first paragraph on that this can only end badly.

Homesick and restless. But I have gotten some work done for the next week and gone over some stuff that wasn't so clear in the lectures. It's not much, but quite good for my standards. The extra effort that I put into the work for today's tutorial paid off, I had the feeling that I knew what was being talked about and I identified both crystal models correctly. Small victory, normally I'm the one asking all the stupid questions, like "where did this second variable suddenly come from?"
Today was finally the last lecture of the five hour long course Light, Waves and Fields which was a basic rundown of Electrostatics, Optics and Magnetism. Like many things here, too much material, too little time. Basically, you have to go over everything with the help of a university level physics book to understand the very conscise handouts. I worked my way through the first lecture so far. With a book that actually explaines the formula dump that is the handout; electrostatics don't seem quite that hard. Must do work in the morning and early afternoon, I usually feel rather good then. It usually goes downhill from dinner on.

You're a freshman. What year is it?

What were your three favorite bands?
The only thing I sometimes listened to was Mike Oldfield.

What was your favorite outfit?
School uniform. On weekends I usually dressed in sweatpants and one of my ratty black sweaters. I still have them.

What was up with your hair?
long, wavy, big, mostly pinned up

Who were your best friends?
Ioana, Pia, Eva, Pavla, Marketa, Mikko, Janos - not best friends, but people I did most of my interacting with.

What did you do after school?
Sports, study time, free time, dinner, activity groups, lights out.  Not much choice there.

Where did you work?
We weren't allowed to have a job.

Did you take the bus?
Yes sometimes in order to get from the old campus to the new one.

Who did you have a crush on
Two guys. One turned out to be a bit too on the fringe for my taste. (he founded his own communist party when he was 18. They actually have a few members). I dated to other, but he turned out to be rather lame. He is still working an getting his high school diploma at age 24.

Did you fight with your parents?
No. They were far away after all and didn't see what I was doing all day long.

Who did you have a CELEBRITY crush on?

Did you smoke cigarettes?

Did you lug all of your books around in your backpack all day because you were too nervous to find your locker?
Doesn't apply, we had no lockers since we could go to our rooms between classes.

Did you have a 'clique'?
No, not really, but there was a bunch of people, I usually sat with for meals.

Did you have a "Max" like Zach, Kelly and Slater?
Not really.

Admit it, were you popular?
Cynical loner - I don't think I was popular, but didn't get picked on either.

Who did you want to be just like?
Dr. S.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
A mailman. Of course I knew that would never happen.

I know just from spoilers at gateworld.net that I'd have to do some maneuvering to make my planned SGA fic not be an AU. Sigh. Silly canon. ;)

(For whatever reason, I never got the email you sent with the password and your address. If it's not too much hassle, could you send it again? I feel as if I'm being annoying. :\)

Good to hear that you have a fic in the works.
Fic is good, but good fic is hard to find. It's amazing what trash you can write and still get positive feed back.

I resent the email to your yahoo account.

I have a fic in the works, provided the season finale goes anything at all like it should. If it deviates wildly from what I'm expecting, I'm back at square one. I guess it doesn't matter terribly either way, as my brain's going to insist on some sort of SGA fic-writing between seasons.

And heh. I know, because I used to write trash and get positive feedback. *shrug* It's true of professional media, too.

Thank you. I got it this time. It ended up sorted into my bulk email for some weird reason. Anyway, thank you. :)

I was wondering if you could email me the password for the atlantis archive? We meet through my searching for WaT episodes.
