Woooooo!!! So You Think You Can Dance Canada has started again! It actually started a while ago (maybe a week or two?) but it's still the city audtions, so I haven't missed a ton. Stupid Leah Miller is still the host. Ugh. But the amazing dancing makes up for her.

So my last day in London was good. I never did make it to Madame Tussauds, but that's okay. I did see Jersey Boys at night which was AWESOME. I am now officially obsessed with it! I listen to the soundtrack all the time. I only wish the London cast would come out with their own version, they're so much better than the Broadway cast!

I finished all my packing in time and Morgan was super nice and helped me to the airport. I never would have made it without her. My flight home was fine. I drank some, watched Star Trek, tried to sleep, listened to some music. My parents met me at the airport and we went home where my siser, Ryan, and Jeremy were waiting and we ate dinner (Jeremy, the cute bugger) went to bed. The past few days I've been seeing my family and friends. It been awesome! Amanda had her Jack and Jill and I got nice and drunk which was fun! Not to mention seeing her again of course! I saw Erin tonight (we got sushi, yum!) which was also fun. And I got to see her new house and puppies (which are adorable - they're labradoodles and only 3 months old). Tomorrow involves some cleaning, some packing, and some more laundry. And then Thursday I leave for Hilton Head!! Woo! I'm supposed to be seeing Rachel Thursday night in Baltimore. We'll see if she cancels on me. Hopefully not! And then it's two weeks in Hilton Head, the ocean, sun, and sand! Yay!

So I've noticed a lack of new fic lately. Well, there's been fic. But nothing that's grabbed my attention. So if anyone wants to rec me some Kirk/Bones (or I'd take Kirk/Spock or Bones/Spock too, or the three of them together!) that would be great!!

Hope everyone's well!!

I love London theatre. I don't get to go as much as I'd like but Jersey Boys is on my list because I adore oldies music anyway so I know I'd enjoy it.

There is totally a lack of new fic. Activity on [livejournal.com profile] kirk_mccoy seems to have slowed right down. I blame it being the last few weeks of summer (people enjoying what's left while they can? getting ready for school/work? idk) and things like Big Bang, [livejournal.com profile] space_married...

I really hope once Big Bang is out of the way some one shots will get posted again. I thik it's great that people are taking part in and enjoying Big Bang but if you aren't someone who writes or reads longer fics, as a rule, it's quite disheartening to see the quality in the general fic output drop so suddenly and then go on for such a long time. I hate to be selfish but I kind of resent Big Bang's for the way they have come to really dominate the fic output on LJ over the last couple of years. I've seen Big Bang's happen in multipule fandoms and it's horrible watching the output of goodfic just dry up for a couple of months.

Huh, good to know it's not just me then not finding any fics lately. I don't mind long fics, but since they're not going to be posted until October/November for bigbang, it's a long time to wait! I haven't noticed them dominating over the past few years, but I haven't been actively looking for new fic in about two years.

You should go see Jersey Boys as soon as you can! I can't recommend it enough! But make sure you go when Ryan Molloy (he's the lead) is playing Frankie, and not the alternate. I've seen both, and Ryan Molloy is better!

Well, the Supernatural and Doctor Who/Torchwood fandoms have both recently had their Big Bangs. Torchwood is also having another Big Bang event already this year for just Torchwood fic rather than Torchwood and Doctor Who. I know there is also [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang but I read so little Harry Potter fic these days (and when I do, it's almost exclusively Harry/Draco) that one doesn't affect me.

Thanks for the tip, re: Jersey Boys. I'll try and manage it. I don't know when I'll be able to go but hopefully sooner than later.

Jealousy on the So You Think You Can Dance front!! Because it just ended in the US, and none of the dancers I powervoted for all season won :( and I totally agree with you about London vs. Broadway, the London cast is almost always better!!

Also I have been intrigued by your lj presence and am about to friend you :D I hope you don't mind :)

The sad thing is I'm in the US right now for the next two weeks, so I'm going to miss some of it (they're announcing the top 20 on Sunday!) But I'll try to find it somewhere online.

I certainly don't mind you adding me! Yay new friends!

*friends you back*
