The bear lumbers out of its cave after a long hibernation...  
Guess that's me. It's been 3 months so I thought I'd show my face. Otherwise, internet society might get the idea that I was abducted by aliens or something. I wish I had more to show for my absence, like a long story or a whole mess of icons or something, but unfortunately, I have nothing to offer of that kind. My fanfiction is pretty broke right now, so I've been resting up and focusing on coursework. You guys know that I'm in university. I opted to do the express summer session, so I'm not busy per se but there's still work I have to do every day. You may know that I dropped out of the SGA Reversebang. Aww, the first time in three years I had to drop out but with the college situation, my mom's birthday being last month, and my broken fanfiction, I thought it would be best to withdraw rather than turning in a crappy fic. That makes it sound like I think my regular fics are fantastic -- not so!

I've been doing a lot of coursework by day and marathoning The Wire by night. I finished one semester, started another, and finished watching The Wire. Oh, and Orphan Black came back on so that was fun, too.

I'm pretty enamored with Omar Little right now. He's so awesome. I know Omar is everyone's favorite but I think I probably watch the show wrong, because I'm lukewarm about the cops (McNulty -- yawn, Bunk -- 'kay) and I'm waaaay more interested in the dealers (Stringer Bell, Bodie, Michael Lee, Snoop and Chris) and the kids from seasons 4-5 (poor Dukie and Michael and Randy). I'm probably watching Orphan Black wrong, too, because my favorite isn't Cosima (I don't know what's wrong with me), it's Sarah. And I hate, hate, hate Sarah/Paul but so far, I'm pretty good on Sarah/Cal (and Felix/Morgue dude -- who knew Felix cared that much, huh? He was so nervous when he was getting dressed for their date).

What about McShep? I'm wearing my McKay & Sheppard shirt right now as I write this. I haven't forgotten them. I love them and their dorky love. I'll get back to them (soon, probably) but for now, I'm expanding my fictional horizons a bit.

Hey, great to hear from you :D I had been wondering where you were. I'm sorry you had to drop out of the SGA Reverse Bang, but I completely understand why. Good luck with school and everything, bb :)

I keep meaning to watch Orphan Black; it sounds so good, and I have a couple friends who are enthusiastic about it.

I'm super glad you haven't forgotten about John and Rodney and their dorky love though :)

Yeah, I couldn't forget about John and Rodney's dorky love. They're my OTP of OTPs. I'm taking a break from fic for a bit, though. :)

Orphan Black -- it's good. It snuck up on me. I was at the last couple of episodes of season 1 and I had to know what happened

It's okay. I've gotten pretty good grades lately.

Hey, I've had to drop out of fests before too. You have good reasons--you have to put school first.

I'm struggling to find anything to watch that I really enjoy right now. Everything is either limping along on last legs, got cancelled, or is on hiatus. I'm about 2-3 years behind most shows anyways (it's pretty much watch it on Netflix at the BF's house or not at all) and the things I'm hearing about *those* shows are making me weep.

There hasn't been anything like SGA to grab me and get me reading or writing fanfic. I'm starting to think there won't be. melagan mentioned that the 10 year anniversary of when SGA first came on the air is coming up in July and it kind of blew me away. That long??

SGA is special for me, too. It really got me. :)

It's crazy when benchmarks like that come up. I had a moment like that recently when the 20th anniversary of X-Files popped up. It's weird. I grew up, watching that show. SGA? Doesn't seem like it's been that long to me and on the other hand, numbers don't lie. Ha ha.
