Angel (John)

my head is san fran

After I went to bed last night, I had a sudden, and I'm talking sudden, onset of a sore throat. I couldn't swallow without doing a whiny little whimper each time. I laid there occasionally sipping hot lemon water, nasty stuff by the way. Finally I gave up trying to sleep, and got up and took some asprin because it was starting to develop a headache as well. This was like 5 or 6 AM.

I woke up to the sounds of the kids playing. I got up and saw it was 7, but I thought it was 7 at night and I had slept the entire day. For some reason I started to freaking panic. Then mom told me it was still morning. LOL So my butt went back to bed and didn't get up until almost noon. But my head feels like it's in a damn fog, and it's a bitch.

At least I was able to finally put some thought to what I wanted to tell searose about her snippet she posted for Straight to Video . When I first read it after I woke, all I could come up with was 'Gah!' Which of course it's beyond that. It's hard, dirty and has no smooth edges. Just the way I like it. *g* Added bonus...John's in a dress. Hey! I have certain things I like..and this is one of them.

I've been working my way back through all of Mayaan's stories for the last two days. It's been too long since I read several of the pieces, and I'm rediscovering the love. hehe

Now onto something a little less thought out. I finally put to words 'something' of what I think happened between Promises and Bad Timing and Scorpius' too smug assurances that John would come to him on his own. And of Harvey's upgrade.

Which I know has been discussed to death.

The only way that I can see for Scorpius to successfully upgrade the clone was to install more hardware into John when he removed Harvey. It's the only logical thing that I can think of since he's only as real as John's own personality and thoughts.

ETA: I want ask a favor of one of you who is brave enough to take on the challenge. I want to fix my first story that I wrote 'The New Arrival'. I think it majorly sucks ass, and I want to erase it from existance. But it's my very first, and it shows where I started in my writing compared to how I write now. The thing is, I can't just leave it out like that.

The favor is: Would someone be willing to over it with the heavy beta pen? It seems I mary sue'd the original character, I didn't know what that was until a few months ago by the way. The grammer sucks big time, and the plot is...well the plot is basically 'please shoot me'. Believe it or not, I did have a beta for most of it, but she only pointed out the occasional typo. I really don't think she went through the whole thing. So unless I fix this, I'm killing it from the net.
