Age. Fac ut gaudeam

Spring. It’s a time of new beginnings, it’s a time of finalities. Which do you consider the more predominant? On one hand, new life is beginning; on another, more superificial side, television shows are all experiencing season finales!

For example, the House. M.D. finale (watch for spoilers): Such a heartbreaking moment when Amber died and, needless to point out, House and Wilson’s friendship has been irrevocably altered. The whole Cuddy/House thing is rather adorable though, I must admit. It was somewhat unexpected that Amber actually died; personally, I kept expecting them to come up with some sort of miracle cure. Alas, it was an empty hope. And Thirteen has Huntington’s! So much sadness to come. And even worse? A possible Actors’ Strike may be in store, when the Actors’ Guild Contract ends in the near future. Apparently they’ve already started filming season 5 of House though, so it’s not all bad.

Onto even more superficial matters: GOSSIP GIRL. This season finale was… beyond unexpected. Glad to see Georgina get poetic justice though; she undoubtedly deserved it. Although a bit of pathos is generated; the way she was scared of her parents and whatnot. Blair can be so nasty sometimes, but her loyalty as a friend is amazing. Stupid Chuck, just left her hanging, to go after bloody Amelia. Like Dr. Phil says, “Past behaviour predicts future behaviour.”  Some things never change. The originally scripted version of the finale script where Bart Bass dies seems much better; would’ve paved the way nicely for Lilly/Rufus. And as for Dan and Serena… Georgina has really done a number on their relationship, hasn’t she?

Speaking of Gossip Girl, I’ve made some headway recently in terms of writing. Reuni enfin, which was long overdue for an update, has finally received one. It’s been a long nine months, but Chapter Nine is finally up (how fitting, numerically). It can be found at www.fanfiction.net/~frostedteardrops if anyone’s interested, under (no duh!) Reuni Enfin.

But onto the Gossip Girl-related writing news: I’ve expelled a new story, a Harry Potter fanfiction tinged with Gossip Girl. Wait, wait–just hear me out alright? I know it sounds unbelievably cliche, but I’ve tried to twist it into something original. It’s about after the Last Battle, starring Draco, Blaise, Pansy, and quite fittingly, Astoria.

I’m here to document every little misstep you take, every slip that comes out of your mouth, and finally, your very own fall from grace.
Can you handle the pressure, or will you crack long before then?

And who am I? That’s a secret I’ll never tell. Cheers,

xoxo, wondering witch.

Age. Fac ut gaudeam. Go ahead. Make my day!

Time Passes By

Time seems to be passing rather quickly recently. Maybe it’s because I’ve been so busy, maybe because I’ll be turning another year older in a few days, I don’t know. Everything seems sort of trivial now, for some reason. Sort of lost in this big, big world. This big, big universe; where nothing pertaining to such petty matters seems to have any substantial sustenance.

In terms of writing, I’ve finally managed to expel another new story.

http://www.harrypotterfanfiction.com/viewstory.php?psid=246863

It’s a Harry Potter realm fanfic, Oliver Wood/OC. I’m somewhat displeased with it thus far though, although I can’t quite seem to put my finger on one particular section that’s expectionally so. With that being said, any comments, suggestions, and critiques especially, would be greatly appreciated.

On another note, I’m currently in the process of reading Stephenie Meyer’s The Host. It’s pretty good so far, different than the  Twilight series in so many ways, yet in others it seems to slightly echo in terms of Stephenie’s distinctively unique writing style. Like many others of you out there have done I’m sure, I’ve also been Googling the Twilight movie and such, watching the interview videos on Youtube and such. The movie seems to be shaping up pretty nicely; albeit numerous factors were definitely unexpected, but that’s part of the appeal of the movie, is it not? A different take on a story well on its way to becoming a classic.

Spring has sprung though; the weather outside is delightful. (Although it is raining rather fiercely here at the moment.) So, stop wasting time; go have some fun, and enjoy the rapidly passing by time.

‘Til next time, enjoy your Pocketful of Sunshine,

Phew + Twilight Castings

It’s been pretty hectic lately. NaNoWriMo did not go well at all, seeing as how I barely managed to clear the 4,000 word mark. November 4th was actually the last day that I’d managed to do any writing on my NaNoWriMo story anyhow. It must be a conspiracy or some greater, supernatural force must have intervened, but everything got loaded on: homework, extracirriculars, practices, music stuff… On the bright side, however, tomorrow’s the last school day of 2007! Doubt we’ll even do any work at all, which will be nice, especially the holiday break. It’s way overdue and very badly needed. Although it is kind of sad that 2007 is almost over now. 😦

On another note, the casting for the Twilight movie’s leading lady and gent have been released, which is pretty exciting. Robert Pattison (Cedric Diggory, Harry Potter) and Kristen Stewart (In the Land of Women). I’m sure they have more movies, but those are the most recent ones they’re in that I’ve seen. A little too bad that neither Henry Cavill or Danielle Panabaker were casted, but Robert and Kristen will probably still be great. Any thoughts? Which actors/actresses were you originally hoping for?

 Speaking of Twilight, in case anyone’s interested, here’s an excerpt from a fanfic that I wrote last November/December. (Yeah, it’s really old, and therefore by default not very good nor is it indicative of my current writing style, but any feedback is appreciated. Critiques especially! Leave me a review there or drop me a comment here. Whichever.) It’s EmmettxRosalie, titled Love at First Sight. Excuse the extremely cliched title 😉
