This is a couple days late, but I did manage to get a good chunk of writing done last Saturday. I tend to be a pretty slow writer, so by other people's standards it probably wasn't all that much, but I finished up a scene (that was dialogue-heavy and therefore tons of fun to write) and started on the next one. This was all for the second fic in my Guardians of the Galaxy AU series, and girl!Peter has been a joy to write. I'm still not sure if I've balanced her character quite right; in the first fic I spent a lot of time focusing on her anger, so this time around I'm hoping that her goofy side will show through a little more. 

I also planned on noodling away at a couple of my other fics, but I got tired so that didn't happen. All and all, though, I'm pretty satisfied with how the day turned out. My writing routine has been out of whack for years (since before I started college), so it's nice to finally be making semi-steady progress on my projects.

I finished season 1 a few days ago. This is one of those shows that, in theory, should have really, really work for me, and for the most part it did. The problem is that I only started to get emotionally involved around the last episode; the story was complete by then, but I still wanted more from the characters. On the other hand, I got eight episodes' worth of murder, dysfunctional families, bromance, folk music, and southern Gothic creepiness. I can't complain too much.

Spoilers (?[not sure that they're all that many, but better safe than sorry]) under the cut.

On a scale of one to ten, I'd give this an eight or so. Maybe a seven-and-a-half? Good enough for a rewatch, but not a story I'm head-over-heels in love with.
