I sometimes like to look at the entirety of Not Prime Time rounds to see how fandoms and the stories written for them stack up. NPT has only run for three years, but it makes me sad to see fandoms with only one story written for them, especially if they're from 2012 or 2013. I want everything to have what Captain America (Movies) has (sitting currently at 31 stories) or Firefly at 20 or Hikaru no Go at 16. I want people to be able to read more than just one story in the fandom they like.

I finished bookmarking the rest of the latest Not Prime Time stories I haven't read yet so I can read them later on my phone. I have a few other fandoms left, including Firefly and Captain America movies (I like to save the big ones for last). There are plenty I've enjoyed reading and even a few that I'm going to rec later once I organize my bookmarks.

Barnes & Noble sent me another 15% coupon through my email but I tend to just ignore them as this point. The closest B&N is rather far away since they've closed the two that used to be nearby. The coupon cannot be used for textbooks or NOOK Books (their ebooks) which would be two big things I'd want to use a 15% coupon on. I don't shop at Amazon and I don't want to, but I know they tend to be cheaper. B&N should really figure out how to do better against Amazon because I don't want them to declare bankruptcy. Also I preferred Borders better but what can you do?

Stiles didn't know why Derek and Kira fake dating bothered him so much. He was going to find out though.

As I continue to play Guild Wars 2, I can't help but notice small differences between it and World of Warcraft. First being that while WoW players used the words hots and dots, buffs and debuffs, that's not the case with GW2 players. Boons are the new buffs and condis (for conditions) are the new dots/debuffs.

Also, in our WvW tier, we're currently at second place. Tomorrow is reset so who knows, we might move up again. Or get the same two servers to battle.

Since this year's NPT round is over, I realize it's time to start revising the FAQ like usual. Also spotlighting fics from this round on the NPT tumblr. I'm still working through this year's fics which is due to a) more fics than last year but more importantly b) I have a hard summer course to get through and that takes up my time.

Like last year, I have no plans to sign up for Yuletide (like I didn't sign up for NPT this year) because of a heavy courseload again. I do have plans to write treats though because that's my method of procrastination when I take my study breaks.

I'm in the editing process of a Derek/Stiles fic that starts with fake dating Derek/Kira and I'm currently working on my Derek/Lydia/Stiles threesome fic. The threesome fic begins with Derek/Lydia and Stiles/Malia before morphing into the threesome and it is slow going. Currently, I'm at 9.4k words.

Guess who's taking French 101? ;-)

I had the super-low goal of pronouncing French loan words correctly, and reading Le Petit Prince out loud. Before this course, the only French phrase I knew was “omelette du fromage*” X-D

To remember that hands are feminine and face is masculine, I pictured Uhura's hand caressing Spock’s face.
La main, le visage.

Derek Hale eats his vegetables, bikes every day, has a punishing diet regime and obsessively cleans his house to show that he can provide for his mate. Derek Hale’s arms. Derek Hale’s face.
Le légume, le cyclisme, le régime, le ménage.
Les bras, le visage.

You’re welcome.

* Dexter’s Laboratory. The dictionary tells me it should be “omelette au fromage.” My childhood cartoon show, you have lied to me. All your bases are belong to us.

Two more days (a chapter quiz and final exam) and I'm done. Possibly the last language class I'll ever take at the university. I ran out of money/education award, for one thing... The award didn't even cover 4 credits, hahah, so everything else was out of pocket (building maintenance, campus beautification, etc).

I rented the textbook from Amazon, but was forced to shell out $80~ for the "lab" portion of the course. What’s wrong with good old CDs, people?? College tuition in the U.S. is unreasonably expensive =__= even compared to just a decade ago (which was when I graduated).
