[personal profile] cait
So having finished my reading (which includes books like 'The Encyclopedia of Atrocities,' and 'Crimes of War - The Illustrated Edition') I tried to get started on my John-and-Rodney-are-happy fic.  I am debating this scenario with myself:

Cait's right typing hand: Possibly something about how the Wraith project specters of themself?  That thing we never saw again after the first episode?
Cait's left typing hand:  Uh huh
Cait's right typing hand: Maybe they don't actually project Wraith phantomey things.  Maybe they project what people are most afraid of.
Cait's left typing hand: Which is why JShep often sees vaginas running through the woods.

This is not an easy fic to write :/

School is okay, I'm pretty sure I'm going to flunk all of my classes.  It's good to go in with high expectations.  Once again I have set myself up as 'that girl who knows Canada,' so hopefully no one will ask me any questions about the rest of the world for the rest of the year.  I dropped the Classical Studies class because I think you're supposed to have some sort of background in Classical Studies (it's a third year class)  and I didn't know who Marc Anthony was when asked.  Awkward.  I'm substituting it with a class on History of the Pacific.  The professor actually fought in WW2, which makes him my oldest prof yet.  I have to make sure not to fall in love with him as I think he is married.  There aren't any assigned readings, but every week we have to read two articles of our choice that have something to do with the Pacific (like, any country that touches the Pacific ocean, from Siberia to Australia to Argentina to Alaska) within that week's time period.  I'm not sure if that's going to work very well, but there's no final, just a 20 page paper on our choice of topic.  

War and Society looks pretty interesting.  This week's readings have been all about what kind of person is able to kill people when directed (the article is...a little biased and crazy) and the whole time I kept thinking about how I wanted to sex up most of the military.  The prof showed us videos of people being shot down on the first day, which made me feel 1/2 sad panda and 1/2 psychotic for taking the class.

I've been to two lectures of a Social History of India and I've learned two things: 1) my prof doesn't care if we plagiarize (!?) 2) What it is like being a trans person teaching at UBC.  I don't think she's mentioned India once, which is terrifying, as all I know about India I learned from 'Bride and Prejudice' and I am going to fail the exam if she doesn't start telling me things I should know..

My computer has not yet been returned to me, and I hate HP very much.  I guess here is where I usually make my 'sorry comments are so behind!  I'll answer them soon!' remark, so - I'm so behind in answering comments!  I don't hate you!  I'm just lazy!  They're coming!

Oh is you happyfic for the happyfest perchance? I've got as far as a title and knowing at some point John is going to push Rodney up against a wall and kiss him. I guess I fail too.

Yes, yes it is. This fic is *stressing* me out. I am unable to create any sort of fic without John being in tears at least once :/

I like it when people get pushed against walls. Yesssssss.

She says that if it's a good plagiarized paper, we probably put a lot of effort into it anyways, and that if it is a bad one, we'll still wind up getting a bad mark. Also, turnitin.com is a form of fascism. She suggests we use 'The Widi-pedia' as a resource :/

She also doesn't subtract marks for late papers. Wtf, I'd love this class if the lectures didn't continue to be so incomprehensible.
