Might not be around as much for a while  

Later on today, I'm being relocated to some far away distant corner of the Pegasus galaxy/Pylea/the Delta quadrant/insert appropriate fandom related location here, for about 8 weeks. From previous experience, these places have no TV and very limited internet availability - i don't have a clue what people do for entertainment, although the term "socialise" keeps getting tossed at me *shudders*. At least I'll still have my laptop and a ton of DVDs :D

Anyway this obviously means I won't be around as much. Will hopefully be back home some weekends. And I'm sure the entire weekend will be spent frantically catching up. Thanking the sga_newsletter and the_cortex in advance. *giggles in anticipation*

In order to keep me linked to fandom in some way, I'm trying to find as many fics as I can to save - need something to keep me going. Anyone have any recs? Any fandom is fine, the longer and plottier, the better - i need to use up 8 weeks remember! If you can't think of any recs, feel free to spam me anyway. I need the company today. I'm miserable at the thought of no internet, don't know how I'm gonna cope with it actually not being here!

wikiberry - don't forget about the care packages you so kindly volunteered to do, okay? azicrow feel free to poke her with a big stick if she does. Also, don't have too much fun without me. *cries*

severusslave, hermioneorourke and amadraco feel free to keep sending me any stuff you want beta'd. I think that'll be one of the few things keeping me sane. But I might take a little bit longer to get back to you. So if you need anything quickly, might be better to ask someone else. :(

Also i have a feeling I'll be spamming you all like mad today. I'll apologise now. But I don't think I'm moving too far away from the 'net today come hell or high water Reavers or the Borg armada.

Dammit, it's past midday. I really need to go pack now. *goes off to find more fics*

ETA: Great, new series of ER is starting this week! Poor Ray. I already knew I was missing the behind the scenes SGA thing. There's also Charmed. And I think Smallville usually starts at this time. *cries again* Okay fine, I'm seriously going to go pack now.

ER??? Really?

Or is it not on the proper channel again...?
Maria: McShep??ria_kukalaka on January 2nd, 2006 12:35 pm (UTC)

is that all you care about? Just for that I'm not gonna tell you. *thinks* Okay I will tell you, but only because you have the power to hold SGA hostage. Starts Thurs 21.00 and repeats Sun 20.00 on E4. Starting on Channel 4 next Wednesday. Not sure about the time, think it might be 22.00.

hopefully I'm not too late. Take care, hon, wherever you go. *hugs*
I'd recommend Dr. Jackson's Diary, if you haven't already read it. And even if you have, read it again! I've read it three times now, I think. Huh. Should read it again soon... anyway, just in the unlikely case you haven't heard of it before: http://versaphile.com/anais/January.shtml

Have fun! And hey, socialising isn't that bad, is it? I mean, there are always closet geeks around. Believe me, I know. I've met them. I am one of them! :)
Maria: labcoat!Radekria_kukalaka on January 2nd, 2006 12:59 pm (UTC)
No not to late. Not leaving til about 6ish -putting it off as long as possible ;)

I *love* Dr Jackson's diary and haven't read it in ages. Thanks, that's going in the pile :D

Socialising isn't too bad really, I'll suck it up.

In case you didn't know already, my fic is kept in my memories (mostly; I probably missed one or two). And some of my favorite authors who have websites (but not all) are linked on the links section of my page.

*hugs* Bring a notebook and WRITE?
Maria: rodney&radekria_kukalaka on January 2nd, 2006 01:01 pm (UTC)
I already have most of your fics saved :)

*goes off to check the links* - thanks :D

Oh dear, we are going to miss you! Ugh, I can't bear the thought of no internet, but you know, it may be relaxing (?) and think of all the fics you can catch up on when you do get the time!

Still, I hope you enjoy whatever you are doing and/or get up to and you know, 8 weeks really isn't that long!

Take care... :D


PS Eek, does this mean you won't get to see the rest of SGA???

Maria: j/r/r OT3ria_kukalaka on January 2nd, 2006 01:07 pm (UTC)
It's work related so I'm not sure that i'll be enjoying it but it might be interesting.

Yep, fics will be good. Except I read too much so must of these will be rereads ;)

PS Eek, does this mean you won't get to see the rest of SGA???
*shudders at thought* wikiberry said she'll send them to me, as long as she doesn't forget! If not, it'll be the first thing i dl when I get back.

*hugs* Take care and hope you can survive it :) I'm sure it'll pass quickly :)

*hugs back*

Thank you. 8 weeks is really not all that long, I did say i was being melodramatic... :)
Jo: Carson Beckettjo_zed_pee_em on January 2nd, 2006 01:34 pm (UTC)
Nooooo!! 8 weeks!?! With no internet? OMG!! Why are you being sent to hell???
*Hugs tightly* is gonna miss you!... Don't forget to pack pencils and pads for when inspiration hits... *Sneaks plot bunnies into luggage* ;o)

*prays hard to Our Lord The Rodney that 8 weeks will go by quickly and return you to internet slash land*

Maria: R/R pornria_kukalaka on January 2nd, 2006 01:40 pm (UTC)
See i knew this was what hell would be like. I'm glad to have it confirmed ;)

It's for work so pens and paper - kind of a given. But I haven't even started with all that stuff. At least I've packed clothes now. *gives self cookie*

I solemnly swear that I will pray to Our Lord every night to provide me with slashy, porn-filled dreams.

8 weeks without internet?! That sucks. But on the bright side, you'll be doing cool doctor-y things, right?

Maria: buffy overwhelmedria_kukalaka on January 2nd, 2006 03:18 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but the cool doctory things only last like 9-5 and then I'll be stuck for the rest of the day without TV or internet!

*hugs back*

Oh noes! ~clings~

I just finished the last part of Pieces, last night - it's in beta, but probably won't be posted until after you're gone! :(

Wish I could make some recs for you, but I just haven't had the time to read much at all.

I don't know if you're into CSI:LV at all, but the best I can do is offer you a link to a list of awesome recs someone gave me: here.

Hope that helps!

Maria: i love Radekria_kukalaka on January 2nd, 2006 03:17 pm (UTC)
Yeah I saw your Pieces post last night, already bemoaning the fact that i have to wait forever to read it! *rolls eyes*

Never really got into CSI, but I'm saving some of those links just in case. Not sure how desperate I may get :D

8 weeks without internet or TV!?! Surely that's against the Geneva Conventions? *starts writing to Amnesty International*

Anyway, here are some good fic sites for you:

Mice! http://www.squidge.org/mice/ Especially 'Moments Sacred and Profane'.

Torch's stuff at: http://www.strangeplaces.net/torch/

'Geek Humor' by Xochiquetzl, an SG-1 story, is very funny: http://archive.skyehawke.com/story.php?no=8101

Gila's Cave (various fanfic by James): http://gila.fakingsanity.net/index.html 'Alone in Your Mind' (John/Rodney/Carson) is quite long and plotty, especially with the added snippets and shorts.

Angyl, Orithain & Rina give good fic here: http://www.infinitum3.com/fiction.html Lots of different fandoms.

I hope thet helps. 8 weeks... *shudders* Good luck!
Maria: R/R like you anywayria_kukalaka on January 2nd, 2006 03:38 pm (UTC)
Yeah, such a cruel and inhumane form of torture. Couldn't they just leave me in a room alone with Ronon or something ;)

I love Mice and Jame's stuff. Hope there are too many updates to MSP whilst I'm gone ;)

Thanks for the others, I've added lots more to my saved pile now :D

*looks at time, freaks out, frantically goes back to packing*
not_sally on January 2nd, 2006 03:51 pm (UTC)
no recs, unfortunately, but going to miss you!
Maria: ZMB - loveria_kukalaka on January 2nd, 2006 03:54 pm (UTC)
awwww i'll miss you too and all your crazy icons :D

Sarah: Carson and Pernamorganmuffle on January 2nd, 2006 06:57 pm (UTC)

Enjoy the doctor type stuff! I'd rec you things but I don't seem to actually have read anything in months somehow except various yuletide fics (download the lot of those and they'll probably keep you going for most of the 8 weeks!)
When all else fails crowbar the fucker.caersmane on January 2nd, 2006 08:26 pm (UTC)
What kind of fics do you want? Slash, het, gen... Fandom? lol I'll try to recc some but I have so many links that I need a hint :)
azicrow: Mcbeckazicrow on January 3rd, 2006 12:09 am (UTC)
I was reading these out to her on the phone and she says thank you for the offer, the fics that she reads are usually sga slash, pretty much any pairing, but non mcshep stuff is especially appreciated because its so rare.

GreenKey: sga - zelenkagreen_key on January 2nd, 2006 08:50 pm (UTC)
I have about 200 SGA stories bookmarked in my memories under Stargate Atlantis. Feel free to raid.

Have a safe trip. We'll keep the 'net warm for you while you're gone.
Tonia Barone: Shiva--Goddess of Icetoniabarone on January 2nd, 2006 11:58 pm (UTC)
Hunt through here if ya want. It's my rec folder in my memories. While some are short, most of are decent length and quite a few are longer than average. All are really good 'cause, well, I'm really picky in what I rec. *shrugs and smiles* Hope it helps.
