Seven scenes into the plotting of my story, I realize, "Hey, if you make the genius scientist your lead, you're gonna have to do a lot of research to explain what the hell he's doing."

Scrap seven scenes (or, you know, throw in somewhere else later) and make the Steampunk Pirate the lead, since he basically makes up everything as he goes anyway. LOL. 'ts okay, though, I really like the pirate better, anyway.

In other news, really enjoyed KyleXY, even though the lead is a total Marty Stu. I guess I really am a bad ficcer, *shrugs*. But I wouldn't recommend it if you want a show with resolution. Still, it hit all my D.A.R.Y.L. and Dark Angel hot buttons pretty well.

I would also highly recommend a movie called Saint Ralph which I dug up on Netflix. A feel good movie of the highest order, just enough funny and tear jerker moments to make it the kind of movie I'll watch over and over again. Also, another from Starz on Netflix is Teenage Dirtbag. A lot darker, not the best made, kinda bleak and ugly overall, but brought me to tears. The angst whores amongst us will love that one, methinks.

Would not recommend The Celestine Prophesy. Read the book. I was disappointed. I really wanted to be moved by the film, but I couldn't even watch it. I spent most of the time it was on, flipping to other tabs and back again. But it did sorta push me to look for more positive energy and to put out more positive energy. I really just need to admit that SPN sucks my energy and stop reading the discussions, because they make me think and feel things that I hate about myself. :/

Back to steampunk pirates. Also, LOL, was combing Etsy for Steampunk garb to put on my characters and realized why my story kept feeling like Final Fantasy X. Because Final Fantasy X is totally Steampunk. I just never knew the terminology. This would probably explain why I keep turning my hero into Yuna. :/ It's okay, though, because my love interest is totally a Rikku. LOL. But my guys are... guys.

That is all.

Hehee.. aww, your logic to scrap/move those 7 scenes was amusing :)

I remember watching the first season of KyleXY... or something like that. I dunno, I stopped watching after a few episodes of the second one showing up, I think? *shrugs*

The only thing I know about Celestine Prophecy is that it bred a lot of online cults? My dad read it and kept making fun of it...

Where are these energy-sucking discussions? I'm so out of touch with the SPN world, even though I still have my SPN filter and I still comb through it every day. But awww *hugs* if they're no fun, just drop them. Certainly shouldn't bring about things that you hate.

Now I'm really curious about this steampunk pirate + genius scientist thing.. :)

Yeah, I heard so many good things about the Celestine Prophecy. I admit to having bought the book ages ago and never could get into it, but I kept hearing it was amazing. So, I wanted to love the movie, but... no. I think it's a good message, being positive and being open to what's good and beautiful around you instead of focusing on the negativity and violence, but yeah, the way it's presented is ridiculously cheesy.

Erm, KyleXY, also cheesy but in a good way. I actually think the second season was probably the best, although I really liked where the third season was heading right up until the cliffhanger ending that will never be resolved. Yeah, not exactly high quality drama, but entertaining enough for entertainment's sake.

Soul sucking discussions... well, for me, pretty much anything SPN related sucks my soul these days. I have fallen off the wagon big time. Yes, I'm one of those girls. I've grown to dislike every other character except Dean, and I hate the way they treat his story, so I just can't get involved in discussions without either getting enraged or wanting to cry my eyes out. It's best just to stay out of the whole business. But I keep getting sucked in because I watch spoilers in hopes that some morsel of hope might turn up. No such luck, though. But if you're looking to have your soul sucked, just check out most fannish discussions on your go to message boards and comms. If you stick to just fic and art posts, you'll probably be okay, but actual discussion these days always deteriorate quickly.

The steampunk pirate and genius story has been brewing in the back of my mind for about a year or so now. I just haven't sat myself down to try to make it work because I know it will be complicated and require a ton of world-building and research. But lately nothing else is inspiring me, so I'm taking a crack at this one. I think it might just be time for it. And if it is ever finished I'm sure y'all will be the first to know. :D

Even years later, KyleXY's bellybuttonless promos still creep me out.

Yeah, that was a creepy effect. Luckily they only actually show it a handful of times on the show, and there was even a time or two that they forgot the belly button hiding makeup. LOL.
