So, I've done a few things. One, I've got all my prompts in order, and am about 97% set on what stories I'm going to write to fill them. I think that the hoops I'd have to jump through to include the Shinkenger story I want to write are a strong sign that that prompt is where I can pick up the TF slack, and Zeo never quite gets its own story, but it shares in more stories than any other season, I think, and one of the stories is going to be very Machine Empire focused, so I'm okay with that. (Besides, all the Zeo rangers were in other seasons, so.)

Also: I have come to the conclusion that I am going to write THE WHOLE THING first, and then give you a fic a day for ALMOST A MONTH. A MONTH.

It will be awesome.

Just once, I'd like a writing project I take on to remain the size I originally thought it was, or maybe even wind up shorter than expected.

You guys, I'm not just aiming for a blackout on my Ranger Bingo card. I'm aiming for a 'Verse. I'd like to stay fairly mum about the thing, since god knows I'm going to be jiggering the thing about significantly before I start setting anything to paper (which is why even though I promised a story a week, nothing's been forthcoming yet). All I'm going to say right now is the running theme of the stories is "The thing you're proudest of that you've never told anyone."

There will be pan-season stories, and stories that focus on each of the seasons individually (although right now Time Force gets some of its focus split to SPD. I may have to pull one of the RPM stories over even though I really like both ideas. And I guess Zeo and PRiS are sharing a bit, too. Hm). And if I feel like any of the seasons get shafted in covering the bingo card, I guess I'll consider "FREE SPACE" a prompt, or just write something that fits in. There's going to be a lot of room to insert moments into canon, the way I plan to write this.

(Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] second_batgirl don't worry - you'll get more details, just not here ;D )

ranger_bingo is a go!

post battle routine
knocked unconscious
can't win battle without overcoming fear
secret identities almost blown
villains posing as Rangers
villain internal conflict
after the end
Ranger reunion
outsider POV
Rangers before MMPR
rescue mission
explosion

FREE SPACE
dealing with everyday life
childhood toy/family heirloom/prized possession/town treasure becomes the monster of the week
explain an event you think is ridiculous
party at the youth center
feeling neglected by teammates
evil goatee universe
date night interrupted by monster attack
teamups

base of operations invaded/destroyed
undercover
cool new toys
kidnapped mentor


I have Ideas, you guys. Also, I'm so happy sentai is allowed on this card too - I'm thinking of using a prior-to-the-series team of Shinkenger for pre-MMPR rangers, though I'm not sure yet.

The plan: get at least one fic out a week in order to get in the habit of writing, try shifting to original works after bingo. Here's hoping! :D

Major stuff, short version: Job, breakup, paycut for ex=found a third roommate.

Major stuff, long version: Got a job working nights at the grocery that's like 5 minutes' walk from the apartment. Spent two day shifts learning cashier since they want all of their night people knowing how just in case, which was good because after about a week and a half of night shifts, one of the night cashiers got himself fired for laziness. Before that I was working as a stocker, which left me way sore after the first shift because EIGHT HOURS OF MOVING BOXES, but since then I've been fine. Night cashier is SO GODDAMN BORING, though. And I'm not allowed to read or have music while cashiering either. I get to music while stocking, though. And I make a dollar more per hour for any hours that are on a Sunday. I have no clue why, but it's nice.

CJ and I kind of unintentionally used each other to get out of Sandusky and once that happened I guess we unconsciously stopped working so hard to work out issues? I'm not sure, but after patching things up before that last post, things just got BAD. So we broke up like threeish weeks ago, I got the spare room and we moved the cats in with CJ. It worked fairly well.

Then like a week and a half later he and the head baker at the place that was the whole reason we moved here had personality conflicts enough that the owner was all "seriously you guys can't work together" so now CJ is a cake decorator at the same grocery store I work at. He's gone from salaried + benefits to hourly and none, so rent became OMG MOST OF WHAT WE MAKE, so we decided that a roommate was in our best interests.

The upshot: rent is manageable again, I've seen the guy like three times, once was when we met with him to see if we'd all work as roommates, and I'm sharing a room with my ex. This is... interesting.

But hey, the town is fucking awesome, I'm slowly saving up some money, and I just signed up for ranger_bingo over on Dreamwidth, so I'll have a boatload of prompts up and will hopefully get in the habit of writing once I get the card.

I'm amused. According to my LJ Statistics page, which tracks the most recent 100 logged-in visitors for your last 30 days, I had one person reading something here on the 5th, three on the 13th, and then 77 logged-in LJers have been to my journal since that fic went up. I know at least one has been a repeat visitor, and I've got at least one more bump coming when the story gets linked in the next [livejournal.com profile] spandex_report.

Of course, I'd probably have more visitors if I wrote something every now and again, yeah? But that's silly talk.

In matters of actual import, I really like the apartment (all we've got left are like a couple mid-size boxes of CJ's stuff in the bedroom, and a handful of things that are waiting for shelves to go up out of the cats' reach in the living room. (Okay, out of one of the cats' reach. Athena can't even get up on the futon, because she is like the definition of a Fat Cat. Hades is, unsurprisingly, exceptionally evil, even for a cat.)

We've got a few other items we'd like to get, too. We're going to be getting a DVD/VHS combi, because even though the market no longer has a place for them we, like many other people, don't feel like buying the movies we already have on VHS again. Plus, my high school band state competition performace recordings are on VHS, and I'd like to show those to CJ someday.

We also need colored tape or spray paint for the dining room chairs we picked up, because the gold really stands out in the apartment, and we unintentionally picked up a suble 5-color rainbow theme to the apartment, and the chairs have five bars running up the back.

Also, we discovered that if you tell a designer that they have 5 colors with which to make a rainbow, they always throw out orange. Always. It's like the most mundane conspiracy ever.

I still haven't found a job because, well, college town in the summer. Almost nobody is hiring. Don't mind looking, because we're about 2 miles and lots of hill away from the main commercial area by campus, so I'm getting exercise again. Plus, I got HeartGold, so I get a ton of Watts in the Pokewalker.

There've been some rough moments, because High Stress + Preexisting Issues = Yelling between CJ and I, but we've worked things out (at least for now), which is always nice.

We're having a belated housewarming party (because we're going to need the funds to throw a party first and, um, we don't right now) in mid-July. If any of you on my flist think you can make it to Mid-Pennsylvania on a Saturday, you're more than welcome to get in touch with me and try to come, but I understand that y'all likely can't.

Did I miss anything? I dunno. Ask me stuff!

So, I got a Twitter account (also Revieloutionne). I actually use it to talk about my life and shit, unlike this here LJ that's kind of reserved for my fannishness (which I want to remedy, BTW).

Anyway, I'm turning in an essay to be considered for being a service trainer at work in a bit, and then I head over to my boyfriend's house until he sees me off at the train station when I start my trip to go visit my brother and SEE HAIR OMG for my birthday.

Life is nice right now.

Sometime this summer, I'm going to take the train up to New York, see the Hair revival, and then train it back home. It'd be a three day trip, and looking at Amtrak, the second-cheapest option would give a two-hour stay in DC between trains (barring delays, which, as I understand, are a fact of life on Amtrak since the rail lines belong to the shipping companies) so I could see my brother and sister-in-law, maybe.

Or, if I can get more time off work, I might train up to DC, visit for a bit, then go to New York, see Hair, and come home.

Either way - I'm looking forward to a train ride, Hair is an amazing show, and Amtrak is a bit cheaper and far less stressful, I'm sure, than airlines. Plus I can walk around while travelling without feeling like a total jerkass.

(If anyone really wants to, maybe we could make a trip of this, but I understand if it's just me.)
