For your listening pleasure: my deep tennis thoughts (download from Box, 3.3mb mp3)

I wanted to write a post about why I am so obsessed with tennis these days, but it seemed too dauting and would be lengthy and complicated and I have a bad head, so I put it in a voice post instead. MP3. Whatever. But oh look, I'm going to write about it anyway.

I think one of the reasons I'm drawn to this fandom is that, to me, Roger and Rafa inhabit a world that is as fantastical and strange as anything: professional sports. They are very different people: Roger Federer is super nice, enjoys shopping for designer outfits, owning jets and has one of the most successful tennis careers ever. Rafa Nadal is a simple boy who still lives with his parents, likes fishing, movies and crushing his opponents without mercy.

They have both made each other cry, in various ways. They are excruciatingly kind and thoughtful to each other in interviews. They have dinner together. They giggle. Rafa Nadal has an apparent mancrush the size of China: Roger is one of his heroes and he's happy to say as much. Rafa is having his best ever year, Roger his worst since he became number one four years ago, and now Rafa is number one instead. Whatever they say about that, there must be some awkwardness and weirdness there.

Oh, it's all so compelling! I don't know how many stories there are to tell though. When [livejournal.com profile] emungere and I talk about (constantly) it's hard to come up with story ideas beyond 'oh look! their big gay love'. But I could probably write about that over and over again.

The main reason for this is so I could keep saying dragonwagon. Say it. It's a fine word. In fact it's a name. But! There is also my deep thoughts on Maid Hakkai, Edwardian vampires and my Sweet Charity story (which has a working title of Monsters).

Yes, this means UK now has ways and means of making phone posts.

Greetings! Why do I always post on Sunday nights these days? Is it to do with not wanting the weekend to be over? Brief update on me: tendonitis much much better, back at work, applying for new job.

Have some more recordings of my brain in action:

[livejournal.com profile] crystal_lilly suggested talking about how I write: Places for writing in

and then [livejournal.com profile] daegaer was wondering about my views on: Hakkai and Gojyo and why they should have lots of sex. I am pretty certain I have far more coherent ideas than this, really. Yes. But they just derail me slightly. A lot.

Going back to work tomorrow after a nearly three week break. God I feel stressed about it. The aches in my hands and arms have mostly gone, although I am still having twinges and aches in my back and shoulders. I'll see how it goes tomorrow.

On a funner note, [livejournal.com profile] crystal_lilly wanted me to reupload a couple of Lou podcasts, so here they are, via yousendit: catboys and Hakkai the porn novelist (6.5mb, mp3) and me talking about works in progress and pwps (1.8mb, mp3)

I'd like to do a few more of these, but was wondering if anyone had any requests for things they'd like to hear me talk about? It's hard being faced with a microphone and potentially anything as a subject.

Well, I feel good today-- less fundamentally achy and I am able to type with very little discomfort, so maybe the cod liver oil is helping, and rest. Also, I'm not stressing about it so much.

Still, it's nice to waffle in an untrammelled way in these voice posts. File is mp3, 6.8mb, via yousendit.

Catboys and Hakkai the gay porn novelist

eta: [livejournal.com profile] vom_marlowe drew me a very pretty Gojyo, wearing Hakkai's shirt (unbuttoned!)

Thanks for the comments on the last ones! I will answer them soon, when my tendons are happier. Meanwhile, here are my searing insights into my current works-in-progress and why PWPs aren't. Also, I managed to download a proper podcasting program, go me. File is MP3, 1.8mb, via yousendit.

Seeing as how I can't type much, I recorded some voice posts using my trusty (by which I mean aged) headset. [livejournal.com profile] emungere swears that I do not sound like a chipmunk in these... although when I played them back on my pc they played at double speed. Er, lets see what happens. They're small .wav files, via yousendit:


My Gojyo and Hakkai standie

ps, I say 'erm' too much
