Turning lemons into limes

mini jensen and jensen

i fucking LOVE this fandom so much

We might be complete psychotics and hate each other with a passion, but when it really matters, we pull together…

I hope there’s video of their meeting when it happens.


I’ve been talking about the “Douglas Adams Trilogy” for a while.

And, son of a bitch, wouldn’t you know I actually managed it? Despite really wanting to avoid that and maybe keep it to a real trilogy as planned?

I added a fifth part and had to shoehorn it in between Parts 3 and 4. It was the only thing that made sense.

Five books in an Adams Trilogy. Five parts in the Cabin Pressure fan fic from hell.

I suppose it’s a good thing I’m against a Kevin Smith or Star Wars Trilogy*.


I also discovered there were more lemons in my fic than just the traveling one. I didn’t mean to write them - they just sort of happened. I thought I’d done a good job of not going too far down the citrus route… I’m going to have to turn those lemons into limes because, as it turns out, I have a fully stocked citrus pocket.

(I am completely aware that in several years I’ll look back at this entry and will need Google to decipher what all that means. I won’t think less of you if you need to do that now.)

I’m tempted to throw the stupid thing away and start fresh.


*There WERE five parts in the Kevin Smith trilogy until he fucked it up and added “Clerks 2” to the VA’verse. There was also a heated discussion this morning between J and I about whether or not the two Star Wars Trilogies were actually separate trilogies, or a Kevin Smith Trilogy. I vote that Star Wars is TWO trilogies - the Anakin as pre-Vader trilogy (aka the shitty one) and the Anakin as Vader trilogy (aka the good one).

I’d also like to point out that a Kevin Smith trilogy will now include SEVEN separate bits when he releases “Clerks 3”.

That shit’s just crazy.
