Show is over. Apart from Thursday night (opening night), we were sold out each performance. Yay.
I had a costume failure each performance. Boo.
I got rear-ended on the way to the first performance, too! But not too seriously. It was raining, I was at a light, her brakes locked and she slammed me. Her car was FAR more damaged than mine. My trunk will open and close, though it sticks something fierce now. And she tore the shit out of my "Nimbus" sticker, but since I'll probably only be hanging on to the car for another 6 months or so? Not sure about replacing it / putting in a claim / getting anything fixed.
For the last performance, the props people inexplicably struck costumes that were meant to stay on the stage through intermission. Argh. This led to a moment where I lost my concentration and jumped ahead one line (dummy!) and then I got flustered and blundered into both the tripod (which was holding a device we shall not name) and Lois in quick succession in the dark. I also left my "dance bag" downstairs for the end of the show, but that's less critical.
However. Overall the show was very successful. I believe we made money. People liked it a lot. Yay.
Lo, I am a zombie, however. Thank heavens Thanksgiving is this week and I can a. sleep and b. clean.
Sunday morning I had breakfast with the lovely and awesome kitsune13
over in Back Bay and we talked about HP, SPN, and theatre. And fangirled Henry Jenkins, cause Yo.
All this activity does not mean I neglected fic. Two pieces are off with the betas: "The Big 1-0" - Dean has a little trouble getting Sam a 10th birthday present - and "Five Times...Dean Didn't Get There in the Impala" - a fic that needed a one-sentence tweak to bring into canon compliance thanks to Thursday's SQUEETASTIC episode.
I've decided to participate in the fic exchange
over at spn_thur_nights
, but I fear I left a rather vague entry. I really need to do a "Master List" post one of these days.
And I posted Monday Meta
about Sam's speech in "Fresh Blood" because damn. It gave us great information to play with.
I've also decided I need to learn how to cap for a new mood theme. I really want to post a special mood theme for the wee_chesters
community. Any suggestions on how to start this process? Remember I'm a Luddite.
Oh, and I'll be using the hiatus to re-view all seven episodes and update the contact matrix for this season. Heh.
And there will be more fic coming. In addition to the two above, I've got on tap:
BUMP IN THE NIGHT - Dean and Sam learn that there are things to worry about besides ghosts, demons, and witches.
FIVE STATES, FIVE DAYS - "Remember that road trip I went on about eight or nine years ago? While you and Dad were finishing up that banshee thing in Florida?"
FIVE TIMES...DEAN DIDN'T DO WHAT WAS EXPECTED OF HIM - Um...self-explanatory?
THE DATING GAME - Sam discovers that girls are unpredictable.
RESCUE ME - A party doesn't pan out as advertised, and Sam calls Dean to pick him up
EVERY, EVERY MINUTE - Sam tries out for the school play
TEAM SPORTS - Dean and Sam have very different reactions to their gym coaches' attempts to draft them.
UNTITLED - A short scene that arrived full-blown in my head the morning after I'd watched "Fresh Blood": Sam at 4 and Dean at 8, domesticity. At the moment it's just the dialogue I jotted down at 8 in the morning, but has potential to be a little more fleshed out.
There may be another SPN fic in there that I can't think of at the moment (the large folder is at home).
And a non-SPN fic, but I have to finish my short story for the second Bad-Ass Faeries Anthology. Danielle also sent me one to review for consideration.
Now I must eat
lunch before going into three hours of meetings this afternoon. Oy.
