I've spent the last two days in a Sherlockian haze, researching poisons and train timetables and Irish law enforcement, only rarely remembering to eat or drink or use the facilities, and listening to Poe's album Haunted on obsessive repeat. I'm about five thousand words in, and I think I might actually collapse before I make it to six thousand.

I'm having so much fucking fun writing this fic, I can't even tell you.

It's almost absurdly dark; probably the most disturbing thing I've ever written. But it's funny how easy it is to forget that while you're writing, to get caught up in the mind of the character who thinks all this is perfectly normal, really, you're just being squeamish and unforgivably bourgeois and then before you know it you're like, hmm, I don't if that murder was graphic enough, maybe I should add some intestines?

So it's been an interesting few days, is what I'm saying. Also: anyone willing to do a read-through and give me a few thoughts? I swear I've kept the intestines to the barest possible minimum.

One of these days I'm going to do a post about my MFA applications and taking the GREs and figuring out what the hell I'm doing with my life, but today is not that day. Today is a day for bloody murder, and occasionally remembering to rehydrate.

JUST FINISHED LISTENING TO EIGHTH DOCTOR AUDIO 'NEVERLAND'. AM NOW INCAPABLE OF REASONABLE THOUGHT. WILL PERHAPS NEVER STOP SPEAKING IN CAPSLOCK. OH MY GOD.

(I APPLAUD MY OWN WISDOM IN BUYING 'NEVERLAND' AND 'ZAGREUS' AT THE SAME TIME. IF I HAD NOT, I BELIEVE I WOULD BE DEAD RIGHT NOW.)


ETA: By the end of the serial, I was so absolutely out of my mind with awesome/horror that I pulled my quilt over my head in an attempt to hide from my computer. As I was still wearing headphones, this effort proved fruitless. OH MY GOD.


ETA 2: There needs to be fic in which Jo, Leela, Charley, and Rose sit around drinking coffee and chatting about Time Lords, fairy tales, and Peter Pan. Maybe in a transtemporal Starbucks? I don't know. I'm losing my mind.
