Since I just got a whole bunch (well, five or six) of those "you have been friended" notifications, I figure it might be a good idea to say howdy. So....


I'm Brat. I write, mostly. Some original stuff, some SGA stuff, various fusions/retellings of Greek myths and antique stories. My current project is writing stuff based in a world where magic is simply another branch of science. At the moment, a lot of what I write is about John Sheppard from SGA, for some reason. I'm somewhat obsessed with putting things in order, so every now and then I'll go through and reorganize all my tags and stuff.

I'm fond of fountain pens, bubbles, and things that spin. I tend to be a stickler for proper grammar and spelling and accurate (or at least interesting) characterization. Sometimes I take photographs. I only friend people I'm already friends with.

Feel free to say howdy back. ^_^
Possible starting places
Barr and Buchanan trying to put the program together - disagreeing with each other on the subject of teaching magic, but needing to present a united front to the people who're running things.

The difficulties of teaching magic theory, etc., while not being an adept in it (and I need to write up an entry on how magic and magic usage works - will try to do that this weekend, since I've been putting it off for months), on top of trying to adapt to a completely new philosophy and style of education.

It might be fun to begin with an outsider's POV - a prospective tutor, perhaps, observing classes.

A descriptive list of the various magic-related pranks and disasters that have happened on campus.

Some bizarre new law or theory or something developed by one of the sophomore magic classes, and the process of developing it.

...I could go on a bit, but I'll stop there for the moment. Mostly, I'd start by starting - begin writing, and just see what happens.
