The only good thing that's happened recently is my department recieved new 19" flat screen monitors yesterday. It was a necessity after a system upgrade and the fact that the old monitors were too small to allow us to properly view the programs. The downside of this is that when I'm writing in Word or surfing the net, you'd have to be blind not to see what I'm doing. Yet, I still do it. ;)
I wrote 500 words of a Hornblower fic this morning. I decide to start what I've been mulling over in my head for the past several weeks, get past my fear, and commit something, anything, to the screen. And, I have to say, I think it's a decent start. So much so I wanted to keep writing (I have it all pretty much mapped out in my head), but I had to stop myself. Stoopid job.
And I still need to complete the Lee/Laura epic. I say epic because I somehow managed to cross the 8,000 word mark. Eep! I'm actually quite satisfied with the fic and working with k_julia's comments is going pretty smoothly. With previous fics there always seemed to be a point where I'd get frustrated because I wasn't seeing something or felt I was struggling with my own limitations, but I think I'm starting to get the hang of this. I also remind myself there is a lot of bad fic out there. ;) Now if I only could find time to finish the darn thing.
I was both tired and working on other things while watching, so I'm sure I missed some significant details. Overall, I felt this episode more than any other recently helped to create momentum and push the story forward. The pieces of the puzzle are coming together and we may actually be building to a satisfyling conclusion.
So Eden isn't evil? Huh. That was a bit of a surprise, though she was obviously playing Mohinder and using him to get information.
And Clair's dad doesn't seem to be the bad guy after all. This isn't so much a shock. I've felt the entire time that he cared deeply for his daughter and whatever he was doing was meant to protect her. Do his means justify his ends? That I'm not sure of, but he's trying to save his daughter's life and what parent sho loves their child wouldn't go to extremes for that? And if in fourteen years he's only caused one person to lose their life, it's obvious he's not going out of his way to hurt any of these people. I wonder if after Claire is saved (do we doubt that will happen?), he'll reveal himself and who he's working for and try to help them all.
Mohinder finally had a story line and, I have to say, it bored me. I'm sorry, but having mommy/daddy issues be responsible for all your angst and how you choose to lead your life is getting old.
Hiro has a girlfriend! Maybe. I was a little confused about the photo. He obviously went back in time and met her before that day, but did he save her? Will she come walking through the front door of the diner next week as if nothing happened?
