Black dog days  
Mmmph. Wham. God it's been a while since I felt like this. Depression just came back with a thud this morning. I guess it was bound to happen at some point--I've been on a month-long high. When I think back on August I can't quite comprehend that all that happened this month.

I think a preventative day off work is called for. (Minus a couple of admin tasks--phonecalls, mail, etc, maybe. *has an inability to not do any work at all*)

Still in the process of formulating more thinky posts on Vividcon/vidding/community and maybe of finally getting to feedback VVC vids and spend some more time with them.

In the meantime, am I hallucinating or did I see something on my friendslist about a ficathon (or some kind of thon?) about girls saving guys? Can someone point me in that direction. I need some of that.

THANK YOU SO MUCH OMG! BEST FICATHON IDEA EVER.

Oh god it makes me want to be a writer so badly just so I could write it. *camps out at comm*

Isn't it awesome? I'm determined to write *something* for it, I just haven't decided what yet ...

Oh god LOLLIE! I could write LOLLIE! Or... like ... ANYTHING. *thinks of every ship with a chick in it she's ever liked and realises she'd most like to read THIS of it*

Wait... I'm not a writer...

Ooh, Lollie! There needs to be more fic of this ship. *nods*

I love them! I always feel like the world's worst Clois fan for saying that but I'm helpless to the Justin/Erica chemistry. I want her to saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaave him!
svgurl: oliver/lois kisssvgurl on August 31st, 2010 01:44 am (UTC)
It so doesn't make you a bad Clois fan. I adore Clois too but I love Lollie too. Like you said, you can't deny the amazing chemistry that Justin and Erica have! In 'Siren', I was going, 'nooo! don't leeaaveee him! He loves you!' :)

SV is a fandom very conducive to and forgiving off multishipping I think (or it should be forgiving given the crazy the show deals us)! I should probably just stop being embarrassed about how much I shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiip them! Oh god, Siren was gutting. :( And I desperately wanted them to get it back on in Season 9.

I think that depends on who you ship, lol, but it is true.

My sister was like that. She's not in fandom, but if she was, Lollie would be her OTP.

I had signed up for the fest and was planning to do Clois, but now you're making me want to write Lollie! *facepalm*
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Lois smirkbop_radar on August 31st, 2010 02:45 am (UTC)
I always find shipper wars in SV lolarious because everyone gets it on with everyone in that show come ooooooooooooooooooon, people!

now you're making me want to write Lollie!
Think of her picking him up off the ground after the cagefight! Think of her kicking his ass for being all WOE MY EMO MANPAIN about everything! Think of Green Arrow getting hauled up on charges for something and Lois writing a brilliant editorial on why Metropolis NEEDS HIM. *rambles off into AU verse*
svgurl: oliver & loissvgurl on August 31st, 2010 03:23 am (UTC)
*nods* Very true. I think everyone should just ship what they want and let other people do the same.

You're not helping btw! *sighs* It's not like I had a plot for the Clois fic anyway. I'll see where my muses take me. :\

Think of her kicking his ass for being all WOE MY EMO MANPAIN about everything!
LMAO! That's the best description of Ollie's angst that I've ever read.:D

Haha, I want to turn your powers to Lois/Oliver!!! :D :D :D

Tess could kidnap him to make him do something nefarious and Lois could take her in a fight? :p COME ON THAT WOULD BE HOT.

*hangs head* This is a losing battle for me.

*gasp* You even hit my secret Lois/Tess shipping ways! It would be hot.

At least I have a month to figure this all out!

(THANK GOD I'M NOT ALONE IN THIS PAIN! *G*)

Aww, I'm sure you can write fic! It's really easier than it sounds. Besides, you have kickass vidding skills, which is WAY cooler. :D

Under normal circumstances I truly do not care. Just...

*reminds self that there will soon be LOTS of chicks-saving-guys fic to read*

I am seriously contemplating a vid along these lines. I just need a SONG.
svgurl: lois no damselsvgurl on August 31st, 2010 05:27 am (UTC)
I still think that you could totally write fic, but you know yourself best. But if you decide to go into fic writing, I'll totally be your cheerleader! *waves pom-poms*

Have you ever vidded 'Keeps Getting Better' by Christina Aguilera? That's a good song, IMO anyway. :D
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Faithbop_radar on August 31st, 2010 06:34 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you! Keep the pom poms on standby... there's a verrrrrry outside chance.

Although I'm quite smitten with the idea of a multifandom girl-saves-boy vid. Thanks for the song suggestion! I like the added layer of 'when not saving you I'm a bitch BUT YOU LOVE IT'. So pleasing to me. SO PLEASING.

*punches and kicks your depression*

maybe you should really go and punch someone XD
its good for stressrelieving, maybe it also works with depression?

my best friends always telling me, violence isn't a solution, if you just talk about it!

Thank you! I'm 10 years diagnosed, so I'm down with the drill. But the highs of the last month have probably spiked me a leetle over my limit. ;) Still apparently vids and fandom being a happy place again help immensely. I am feeling more cheered already! :)

I'm sorry to hear you're depressed, it's a real soul sucker. I hope the preventative day off helps and that the depression will go away soon.

I had to take some time before coming to comment on this post. We've talked about "black dog" days before, and I don't really know what to say apart from I hope it passes quickly and it's not too bad *hugs*

I'm sorry--yes, it's a hard thing. I appreciate your comment. I am really working proactively to stay on top of it this time. Acknowledging it kind of helped. ;)

Black dog days
I'm sorry it's landed on you again :( I hope that you can shift it quickly. Maybe many walks in a park with an adoring dog in the sunshine would help? Are you back iin the swing of things with your dance and skating classes, as those always seem to give you a lift.

Re: Black dog days
Mostly back into it, yeah. But so unco it's probably not having the same effect it usually does. Actually the sudden increase in the number of hours spent at a desk could VERY well explain the return of the black cloud. SMART YOU ARE.
