Thank you for your correspondence.  I acknowledge my love for you.



Pain in my ass - I love him. <3
It has been a while. Life got crazy, Chris and I moved in together, grad school started up again and work is pretty much eating up my life.

Chris and I are going on a cruise in May that I am really looking forward too. When I tell people I'm going to the Caribbean I love how they tell me to watch out for pirates. Hi - all of the pirate encounters have been around Africa. Dumbass. Unless the pirate you are talking about is Jack Sparrow. Then I'm all in - with my pants off, of course.

Work is just a gigantic ulcer generator. I'm really not a fan of my job anymore but since they are paying for my education ($5,000 a year!) I figure I might as well stick it out until I get my MBA. Then I'm getting the fuck out of Doge. I have no idea what I am going to do after that, honestly. I'm going to start networking with people in HR and start learning about what they do. Although I still think of my job as a means to an end there isn't a reason for me not to enjoy it, right?

Which brings me to my writing, or lack there of. I don't think I've written a damn thing for months. Basically I'm just really good at making excuses for not writing. Honestly, I have no idea what to write. As much as I love fan fiction I really want to start doing my own stuff and putting it out there. I have some great gay/lesbian romance fiction ideas I came up with this week that I'm excited to start working on. I have to read more F/F romance. I need to get the logistics of how to write it down - especially the naughty bits.

I'm actually contemplating on doing a cosplay for this years YaoiCon. Ciel Phantomhive from Black Butler. I saw his character and I was like - must cosplay. Then I heard him speak and I was like yesmustcosplaynowthisissofuckingawesome! It is just so expensive the cheap part of me is like "really Kat?" But the big kid in me is like "fucking rock that shit like a 13 year old boy!" I should explain here that the character I want to dress up as is a 13 year old boy. Chris laughs that while all the other girls want to skank it up, I want to dress like a pedophiles' wet dream.  Picture below....

Sexy - right? WAAAY more sexier than a 13 year old boy should be. But that is anime for you. Don't even get me started on the dynamic between him and his butler. :op

So I'm going to try and update this at least once a day to start these little fingers a fluttering over the keys again. Also I'm going to start a writing notebook. For some reason putting pen to page always gets my inner writer at work, much more than typing on the keys. At least for brainstorming. I think I need to practice mapping out plot-points. But that will all come with time, which is running out. I can't put it off any more.

Title: Nightminds

Page/Word count: 101 pages/48,452 words

Author: Spygirl690

Rating/warning: NC-17 for violence, language, drug use, and graphic sex scenes. These are gay sex scenes (guy on guy) if that freaks you out, kindly go read something else.

Characters/Parings: Bruce Wayne, Jack Napier

Summary: This is set before Batman Begins and was inspired by the characters created in Christopher Nolan’s Universe. Bruce goes back to Princeton to figure out to follow in his family’s footsteps but finds someone who shows him a different path.

Disclaimer: I do not own any of the characters. The title comes from the song Nightminds by Missy Higgins – a song I thought fit this story and the paring quite well.

Authors note: There is so much I want to say because this took me so long to write. All I can say is thank you for your patience. Any and all constructive input on my writing is welcomed.

I have uploaded the PDF file to several download sites. Please let me know if one of the links are not working. Feel free to pass this story to anyone via email or whatever but kindly include a link to my journal so they can leave me some feedback.  

Uploaded to Google Docs



Also - I really enjoy creating soundtracks for fanfiction. As I was editing I thought of a few songs that would go well for them.

Sia ~ Breath Me
The Flys ~ I Got You Where I want You
Sarah Mclaughlin ~ Possession

What do you think?

55 out of 107 pages....

ok I know you guys are like OMG KAT WHY U TAKE SO LONG! Well I thought it would be helpful to do a "red pen" edit on paper and then transfer it to the electronic document. It is helpful and it isn't. I'm chipping away on it every day. I can't wait to post it. I'm a little nervous because, honestly, it's not a masterpiece. But it is a stone on the path to me becoming a better writer. I'm looking forward to getting constructive feedback from everyone. Hopefully some *squees* as well. I know there will be outcries for a second part and that may happen - someday. I need to let Bruce and Jack rest for a while. Save for the occasional smutty one-shot. I think my next project is going to be a White Collar Neal/Peter/El fic as well as an original fic of my own.

<3 you guys to pieces.

Going to see DH this week!! Midnight showing baby WOOOOOOO!


Finished. I'm going to start typing the edits into the word doc I have. As soon as I'm finished I'll convert it into a PDF and post for all to enjoy. Hopefully this will take less than 2 weeks....

red pen edit - ch 17

17/26 finished. <3 G'night all.


Red Pen Edit - CH 14 ~the sexy chapter~

Proof I'm editing my balls off for you guys.

I have to admit my writing has a long way to go. Hopefully this will help. I have problems with creating the "surrounding scene". Dialog is definitely one of my strong points - letting you know what's in the room or what the characters are doing.....ummm I got some work to do there.

Also, I <3 putting songs with stories. I have two new ones to go with Nightminds -
The Flys - I got you where I want you
Sara McLaughlin - Posession

I can't wait to hear what songs you think of when you read the finished copy. ^..^

Nightminds edit update 2

I just finished my "red pen" edit of chapter 10/26. Slowly but surely! :o) I love chapter 10! <3

Nightminds edit update

up to chapter 4 on my "red pen edit." Things are going well so far. God I really have to work on keeping my tenses consistent.



NIGHTMINDS IS FINISHED! I just finished the last chapter. Now I'm going to print it out, do a massive edit and then create the PDF for everyone to download.

wow I am treating myself with booze tonight. I actually am going to make a few big changes to what you have already read so it will be a fun re-read for everyone who has already stuck with me for the first 15+ chapters. the final chapter count is 26 (+prologue) with a word count of 78,000 - about 104 pages. This may change slightly after my edit.

I am so happy. I swear this is the turn of a new leaf for me. The next thing I probably will be working on is some original work and a white collar peter/neal fic I've been dreaming about for a while. My boyfriend has offered to make me a web page to post my stuff on so hopefully there will be more and more things for you to read in the near future! <3
