I completed three Big Bangs in the last month or two, but I still have four left: [community profile] kinked, [community profile] ladiesbigbang, [community profile] scifibigbang and [community profile] hardmode. They're all due at the same time, at the end of August. I also have four essays to write (1,600 words each) and an exam to sit in Anglo-Saxon, and consequently a shitload of translation work to do, not to mention research.

So. A timetable! My essays are due on the 10th and the 17th of May. Two on each date. I don't remember exactly which is which, so I might have to rearrange this...

[community profile] kinked: Get first draft done by 20th April.
Crime Fiction essay: Get first draft done by 25th April.
Women's Poetry essay: Get first draft done by 30th April.
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight essay: Get first draft done by 5th May.
Myth & Saga essay: Get first draft done by 10th May.
[community profile] ladiesbigbang: Get first draft done by 15th June.
[community profile] hardmode: Get first draft done by 1st July.
[community profile] scifibigbang: Get first draft done by 15th August.

Obstacles: Anglo-Saxon exam, moving out of my flat, driving lessons, a summer job, my twenty-first birthday.

...Cheer me on? Ask questions about what I'm going to do, so I can enthuse at you and get myself enthusiastic? Poke me?

*whips off the mod hat*

Name: Nikki/[personal profile] shanaqui.
Writing journal: [personal profile] edenbound.
Main fandoms: Supernatural, Firefly, Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy X-2, Kingdom Hearts, The Dark is Rising, Merlin...
Favourite characters/pairings: Oh, god, too many to list. Dean is my favourite character in SPN, Simon is my favourite in Firefly, Seifer is probably my favourite in FFVIII, Gippal or Baralai in FFX-2, Axel in Kingdom Hearts, Bran in The Dark is Rising, Merlin in, well, Merlin...
Favourite writing tool: Write or Die desktop edition. It's seriously good at just kicking your ass into writing.

I'm mostly here for support doing Big Bangs. They're my addiction. I do the writing part due to utter lack of artistic skill.

Big Bangs I'm participating in:
-[livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang: First draft complete. Supernatural AU, in which Dean is brought up by Ellen, is mute, and saves the world with hugs.
-[community profile] hardmode: Idea hatched. (Not open yet.) Final Fantasy X-2 cyberpunk AU, focusing on the Crimson Squad.
-[community profile] kinked: Pending idea. (Not signed up yet.) Supernatural Dean/Castiel fic, I think.
-[community profile] ladiesbigbang: Planned. (Not signed up yet.) Supernatural Dean/Cassie fic, in which Cassie kicks a lot of ass, mostly Dean's.
-[community profile] scifibigbang: Planning stage. Firefly apocalyptic fic, in which everything goes wrong.
-[livejournal.com profile] sncross_bigbang: First draft complete. Supernatural AU/The Dark is Rising crossover, in which Will and Bran try to guide Dean, Sam and Castiel into not starting the apocalypse.
-[livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang: Planning stage. Supernatural AU in which, at the end of S4, Dean is blinded.

I've also got claims at [livejournal.com profile] centi_porn, [community profile] overlooked and [community profile] 3x3.

Oh my god, how many tags am I going to need now...
