Lee/Laura - Hearts On Fire - sdwolfpup

So Very Tired

I only got about three hours sleep last night. And it's all k_julia's fault! She demanded porn fan fiction (which, to be fair, I did sort of promise to get to her this weekend) and the tweaking I was going to do turned into some significant rewrites and pretty soon my Midnight cut off became 3am. But a draft was finished, as finished a first draft as I've ever done, and was sent off to her and it doesn't suck! Not that I thought it did, but I tried some different things with this story and it took me weeks to get Lee and Laura naked so I was a little concerned how it would all read. Now I am on to actual tweaking, adding some relatively small things here and there. I can't begin to say how invaluable a second pair of eyes are to a story because there never fails to be something obvious I missed because I'm so close to the work.

Speaking of BSG, sort of, Comcast On Demand has the perview scene up for this weeks ep. For anyone who watched the online only content after 'Torn' aired it's an extension of the scene that Sci-Fi put up. I have to make one non-spoilery comment - the command situation continues to confuse me.

Now off to sleep (sorry, Julia) because the sleep deprivation and Advil have gotten the best of me.

Podcast for 'Torn'

Sorry for the delay, I had heard that the podcast for ‘Torn’ was painful to listen to so I procrastinated. No, Ron wasn’t being more annoying than usual ;), but the format was different. Ron took the podcast on the road and recorded it on a visit to Cornell University in a class full of students who had just watched the ep with him and were allowed to ask questions. This was both good and bad. The students who were obviously fans of the show asked some questions that I would have asked myself and also made some observations that hadn’t even occurred to Ron. On the downside, you get questions like "Who’s Ellen?" and "Are those all Cylons?"” from people seeing the show for the very first time. I don’t need recaps of the Tigh/Ellen relationship or the Cylon history thus far.

As usual, no spoilers. Honestly I think he may have only said one tiny thing that may or may not be construed as a spoiler. And I did opt to recap a couple statements that vaguely discuss future developments because they directly tie to situations in ‘Torn’ that left some of us confused and I think people will be relieved to know that the plot points will be addressed.

The high point/low point? Ron all but admits he doesn’t know what the hell to do with Lee. :/
