As an addendum to the previous musings, I remember that on at least two occasions Shredder and/or Krang tricked Baxter into helping them with an evil scheme while promising to turn him human again if he succeeded. So on those instances he believed, even if temporarily, that they had something to help him. I wonder if he then believed that they were lying all along and/or if the fly made him even forget it had happened at all. Either or both is certainly possible, judging by how scrambled his mind was after the cross-fusion. He didn't seem to remember from one episode to the next about the possibility that they had something to help him. He was definitely always interested in being normal again, so it seems likely that the fly made him forget ... unless he thought they were lying and that was another reason to take revenge on them.

Finished the fic I was working with for over a week. It was a lot of fun to write. Now on to the next one; I'm ready to tackle the one now about villains trying to use a Rare Earth magnet on poor Vincent to in essence kill him so he can't tell about seeing their criminal activities on campus. The Rat King is probably also going to be involved, thinking it sounds like a good way to take revenge on Baxter for inventing the Mousers. And the fic opens with Baxter having a very involved dream where he speaks with the him of the past who has the Eye of Sarnoth. He also encounters his fly self buzzing around shrieking about revenge.

I also had the urge to draw a picture based on the scene in Control, Alt, Delete where Vincent and Baxter are kidnapped, and I did so. Vincent is kneeling on the floor of the Technodrome and protectively hugging an unconscious Baxter while glowering hatefully at Shredder and Krang. Debating whether Shredder and Krang will actually be in the picture or if it looks better with them off-screen. Also thinking of drawing something cute with Vincent and Zach, maybe from Evermore, maybe not. I'm not really a fan of Zach, but I definitely don't hate the kid, and I like the friendship he ended up forming with Vincent.

(Sometimes I wonder how the show ended up with two characters who really have the same name, just spelled differently: Zak the Neutrino and Zach the kid. Somebody must have slipped up and forgotten the Neutrino when naming the kid....)

And I was looking through the stuff in my folder and giggling over the Ginger and Lou Halloween comic with the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. I should try to do a fic of that sometime. I don't think I ever considered that before, since it was first going to be a music video and then I decided to make it a comic instead.

Oh dear.

I still haven't bought a new bag. Money's been tight and the red purse has been holding everything I need right now aside from the full-size notebook (and aside from any purchases I might make; I love that the messenger bags hold most purchases that I make so I don't have to carry shopping bags around). And ... I'm still in love with the Chibiusa drawstring bag. It's so impractical to think of getting that one, since I assume it only has the one compartment, and it's so frustrating. It's so happy and cute and it says what I want to say right now better than any of the other bags I've looked at. Dang it, I want it.

I have considered getting it to use as a purchase-holding bag. Or as a bag to take my Ghostbusters board game in when I walk to my friend's house (although I have a tote for that). I just ... really don't need this bag. And it costs most than the messenger bag. How do I make myself not want it....

And I watched Phantom of the Sewers the other day and decided I wanted to do a Five Nights at Freddy's-type fic with the Turtles characters. The episode gave me a perfect set-up for it! I had a rocky start getting it going, but that may have been partially because I wanted to write something squeeful that I also had an idea for. So I wrote a blurb that will go into a future fic. Once I got that out of my system, and figured out exactly how I wanted to work the Freddy's fic, I managed to get the Freddy's fic to flow. First draft is almost done now, aside from the epilogue stuff (and whatever I add in proofreads).

In preparing for the fic, I re-read the Freddy's parody I did with Ginger and Lou. I also ended up reading a couple of other short stories with them. I am honestly still pretty proud of all those fics. And I still think that I wrote them pretty accurately, if they ever were to reform. Ginger is such a wild card. And it was fun sometimes, being opinionated on topics through him that I probably wouldn't dare to be opinionated on as myself. Heh. Someday maybe I can write the rest of that second 100Songs set I was working through. I think I was close to being halfway done with it.

And random thought of the day: I don't think Baxter and Barney in my verse would be able to stand watching The Lion King, for obvious reasons. I think the brother problems would upset them too much, both because Barney was never as horrible as Scar and also because he would still be able to relate to some of Scar's bitterness and anger.

I have several songs that remind me of one or the other or both. I'm considering making a section on my website to list them all. Some were found by ThickerThanLove and some were found by me. I love them. And I've been practicing trying to sing some of them in-character. I already have recordings of a couple of them on my Sta.sh. They're sad ones, though, as they're sung by Baxter in fly form post-Revenge of the Fly, when he's lost Z and the fly has mostly completely eclipsed his humanity.

It's funny that I've been having the most difficult time doing voices for Baxter/Barney and for the Turtles. April/Irma/Vernon and Shredder/Krang/Z are pretty easy for me. But I think I've hit on the best voices I can for Baxter and Barney, so I may try recording some new clips and songs soon. Barney's voice is slightly higher pitched, as that seems to be the case in canon. (Although I imagine that he and Baxter can sound exactly like each other, if they choose.)
