This is my first time winning, third year playing. 

The downside is that my novel is only about 2/3 through, if that. So my motivation now is to finish. Because I actually want to finish some original fiction for once, dammit!

I'm hoping this will get me in a habit of writing every day. I want to continue with this, but only time (and self-discipline) can tell. Plus I have to take a break to work on my bigbangmixup entry over December/January, PLUS some fanfic I really want to do. I think I'm going to force myself to do that NaNo 2,000-ish twice a week on my original during that time. 4,000/week x 8 weeks = 32,000. I should be well on my way to finishing that point. 

To give a sense of the mood of my novel, here is the "soundtrack" cover I made during my procrastination writing. 


Okay, done squealing. BACK TO WORK. 

Now working on my WriMo novel has become procrastination for working on my finals. Oh, the irony.

Thank you! I saw that you finished, too - really early, actually. SO MUCH CONGRATULATIONS.

Haha, it's my first year winning and I feel so good about it.

It was the first time for me, too! CLEARLY WE TWO ARE VERY AWESOME.
Is it bad that I'm already looking forward to next year? Haha.

YES. It's very bad. It means you're a little insane.

Honestly, I kind of am, too! I don't know if I'll have that magic set of circumstances for winning again, but just knowing I *can* do it feels really good.

Haha, I'm just going to add here, since I'm lazy: I didn't know Rumplestiltskin's actor before Once Upon a Time, but Rumplestiltskin is the biggest reason I gave it a shot, too. It's good to have a character who's just allowed to be ambiguous and creepy in a show that's mostly feel-good.

Yeah, I'm already starting to doubt whether I'll be able to win again, but it's just so much fun!

Oh, if you're not too opposed to Sci-Fi stuff, you should check out Stargate Universe. He's in it, and is character is sneaky and amibguous and just very, very awesome ;D

I'm not a huge sci-fi fan, but I like it when it's well done (the example people tend to cite is Firefly, so). Haha, maybe I could watch it with my mom. She loves stuff like that.

I might check it out! Any show that has sneaky, ambiguous characters is probably up my ally, and I really, really like that actor in Once Upon a Time.

Oh! I just wanted to add: I read somewhere that the underground thing is the remains of Fairyland, and the glass that Regina threw back down the hole was part of Snow's coffin.

This tumblr is mostly picspams, but they also have some interesting speculation on things like this: http://fuckyesonceuponatime.tumblr.com/ .

Ah, yeah, it being her coffin makes sense...

Also, I just watched the episode, and OMG. I never realized that I was such a big fan of happy endings until, well, there weren't any D: Also also, James' father/the king makes me laugh whenever he shows up^^
