writing goals :'(

At the beginning of June, I made a goal of finishing three bingo cards/prompt tables. Guys, why did I do that??? Family visits + unexpectedly strong feelings about anniversaries this month = not writing nearly as much as I'd expected to. I mean, I've certainly written more than normal and managed to publish three fics this month! But that's not enough for my goals.

So new goal for the rest of this month: finish up my [community profile] fffc June special card. Hopefully if I try to make my fics more bite sized I'll actually manage to finish. ;3;

I don't know what I want to do for next month. Camp NaNo is a thing but I don't know if I really want to participate this year. At least not in any official capacity, haha. Maybe I'll do the same thing as I did this month and just shoot for blacking out a card. I have enough of them!

this is not a fandom post, sorry

Thanks to everyone who commented on the last post.

I'm okay! I actually ended up spending most of the day alone, watching SVU and playing on Pinterest. Mom and my sister went to places but I really resent my sister inviting herself over like she did (and she knew it) so I elected to be alone.

Let's see. I'll get back to fandom soon.

bad things, sad things

I didn't feel well today but I made it through work, then went to pick up some groceries. While I was there, I decided to check my blood pressure. 172/108 with a heart rate of 100. Y i k e s. I came home, took something, and it's okay now. This Thursday is the first anniversary of my dad's death. I'm pretty sure that has something to do with it.

Handel won in the GA 16th district. This is disheartening, even though it's not that surprising. I hate this state. The south would be a great place if weren't for the people.

I'm not doing great right now, haha.

SVU descent - Original fiction - family bullshit

Alright, let me make an actual post instead of just fic and card claims, haha.

I spent all day watching the first half of season 14 of SVU so I could get more familiar with Barba's character (I have not seen most of these episodes! How have I already written fic, this is terrible!) and now I'm watching Fear the Walking Dead (which is actually interesting this season, what a shock!).

For original fiction writers, this showed up on my twitter timeline: JMS is having a submission call for Food of Love (LGBT romance stories). It sounds like a cute and fun call. :3

Facebook continues to be a mistake; one of my half-brothers contacted me. I'm super not interested in talking to this man. For one thing, we haven't spoken for at least 22 years. For another thing, he never reached out to my dad. My mom tried so hard to find dad's kids for him and she couldn't do it, and they certainly never reached out to us, and now dad is gone. I certainly don't have any interest in talking to pretty much anyone on my father's side of the family. Like, thanks but no thanks, you know? I dunno. I will probably just never respond.

Fandom Update

My mom and I watched the first episode of the fourth season of Sherlock and spoilers )

Also so I watch Law and Order: SVU, right? I know, I know, but look, it's my mom's show, it's a thing that has been around and on my tv ever since it started and it's weirdly comforting. Anyway, I've never been interested in its fandom at all. I didn't even know it had a fandom outside of like, older women on message boards or whatever.

But apparently I just need the right ship. Enter Dominick "Sonny" Carisi and Rafael Barba.



I MEAN JUST LOOK AT HOW BARBA LOOKS AT CARISI:





GUYS IT'S WEIRD TO BE READING FIC OF THIS SHOW???? Like, I have never had any interest ever of having anything to do with this and yet, here we are. I'm going to back and watch the 16th and 17th seasons. The 18th season, from what I remember, is basically garbage, but I'll rewatch it when it hits netflix. XD

And of course, I've got fic recs:

In Vino Veritas by [archiveofourown.org profile] etothepii: Also known as: Sonny Carisi's Life, as Told Through Binge Drinking. (Rated E)

breaking the stones in my wall by [archiveofourown.org profile] vlieger: "Get out of my office, detective," snaps Rafael. (Rated E)

in between (there's you and me) by [archiveofourown.org profile] gollumgollum: He doesn't like it when things get messy. He prefers clean breaks, and he deeply appreciates that this is the first moment that Sonny has even tiptoed over the line Rafael had drawn in the sand when he'd ended things between them. He doesn't want to encourage further intrusions, further boundary testing.

Except.

That's not really what this is, tonight. Even Rafael can see that. Sonny's so quiet, so withdrawn. He's hurt and hurting, and he came to Rafael because he didn't know where else to go. (Note Rated)

What the Rain Washed Up and Away by [archiveofourown.org profile] slashy: something small for leslielol, who asked that i write more barisi, and then prompted me both “accidental date” and “shitty weather”. (Rated G)

Treading the Riptide by [archiveofourown.org profile] flyingwide: Barba’s narrowed eyes flashed over him, assessing, and he knew any hope he had that Barba had by some miracle not managed to catch that was futile. “And you’re still interested?” he asked, voice soft and quiet and tripping some alarm in Sonny that blared “deadly.” He’s a danger to you, his mind screamed at him. He’ll eat you alive.

“Definitely.”

No one ever accused Sonny Carisi of being a coward. Or of having a strong sense of self-preservation. (Rated E)

Absolution by [archiveofourown.org profile] Robin: After the latest sins of the Catholic church are revealed, Carisi feels like his faith is shaken. But he finds reassurance in the last person he expected to follow him to a church. Takes place after Season 17, Episode 18: Unholiest Alliance. (Rated Teen and Up)

Also I made the mistake of reading a fic that hasn't been updated in a year and I'm so mad at myself. *___* It's so good but I have little hope of it updating. ;3;

ANYWAY, let's see. I think that's about it right now. :\a I need to find some icons now. XD

(not so brief) update!

I don't know how people recuperate from family being over for a week but I'm absolutely exhausted and I gotta go to work in about 30 minutes, so here's a more substantial update, haha.

There's was no drama between the people I thought there would be. There was certainly a great deal of disgust towards my niece (who is also that annoying boss I've mentioned) and her jackass boyfriend making out and shit at the baby's birthday party. This woman is 30 years old and was acting like a horny teenager. But for the family who were actually visiting from out of town, no drama, no arguing, it actually went well.

There are a lot of babies in this family. I held all of them.

It's so weird because okay, C and her daughters were visiting and C has always been my best friend but it's so weird how very much we're not on the same wavelength anymore. It really, really sucks. I mean, we still get along well and laugh and have good times but we're not, like, in each others brains anymore. Which, that's something we've both noticed before but it was so much more evident during this trip. I blame the baby, haha. But seriously, it really just means that our lives are going in different directions (while she's very much still interested in geeky shit, she's also very much into motherhood and being a new mother and it's true that babies tend to...take over everything. And you know, we also live half of the US away from each other which I'm sure has a big part to play. I don't know. The idea of drifting apart is normal, I guess, but it's also awful.

A friend came down from Tennessee and brought me a Tardis toy that lights up and makes sounds. He didn't realize I've not watched any new Who, haha. So I guess I'll have to do that now.

On Monday, we went to the mall! I didn't know there was a ThinkGeek store there. *___* So many Funko Pops. Also, while there we went to Sephora and I picked up the Modern Renaissance palette and some new eyeliner, and then C bought me the Make Believe in Yourself palette. Guys, I adore makeup and while I don't wear it to work (because dog hair floats everywhere) I do wear it quite a lot. :3

More fandom oriented update to come soon-ish, I just don't want this entry to be muddied.

Discord! Also some other stuff.

So yeah, I finally tried out the latest messaging system so if you want to chat sometime, my Discord tag is nanners#7965. :D I really like this app, even though I've only used it with [personal profile] imperion so far. So yeah, if ya want to talk about stuff, hit me up, I guess! I miss chatting with people in fandom. :3

I just want to go back to the coffee shop and write more. ;3; It was so nice last night. Why is work a thing that has to happen now? I'm going to try to post another thing today. That's the only way I'm going to actually meet my June goals, haha. I just have to remember that not everything has to reach 1000 words. Like, that's super not necessary, me, let things be shorter than 500 words for once, dang. NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS EXPLICIT CONTEXT, CONTEXT CAN BE SUGGESTED.

This week starts hell week, with one set of family in town that I want to see and one set of family that I absolutely don't want to see. So I'm going to my best with that balancing act, because I'm not someone who thinks I should tolerate homophobic Trump supporters just because they're family. So I don't. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I'm going to try not to stress about it.

(no subject)

I know people like to drag on old dubs like Gundam Wing and Slayers but I listened to Free! and Yuri on Ice and holy wow. So much cringe. I thought dubs were getting better!*

Writing for a new fandom is kind of nerve wracking; writing porn for a new fandom is more so. But maybe I'll actually have some fic to post today! [personal profile] imperion and I might be going for coffee+writing so we'll see how that goes. I always like writing porn in public. :D


Click to see bigger!

I really couldn't help myself and hearing that the filming is done for season two hyped me up. She's so cute! ♥

*and because I'm not interested in hashing out the dub vs sub debates of old, these are just my opinions and if you dig modern dubs, that's great!

;;;;;

Today is absolutely a mental health day. I was not okay yesterday but I still managed to go to work, pick up my niece from where her car broke down, then accompany my great-niece to the damn airport (the Atlanta airport which is both a hellish drive and a hellish airport, but we ate at IHOP which is always nice). Then I woke up this morning and was like nopenopenope I can't do this today.

The good thing is I absolutely know what's causing and that event isn't coming and going until a couple of weeks so I gotta just. Power through this.

Anyway, I'm poking at fics tonight and seeing what I can write. [personal profile] imperion got me thinking about simblers and Sim storied again and I'm just like hmmm. :\a The Sims 4: Parenthood DLC came out today but I don't have money to buy that and won't have it for a couple of weeks, which is a bummer. :(

random mishmash

I joined [community profile] nanodownunder in an attempt to get some writing done in June! I signed up to get blackouts on a few cards which, if I remind myself that not everything needs to have a complete backstory and context, should be doable. But I'm going to start ahead of time in hopes of actually completing something. I'm just feeling so scattered after the creativity bubble popped. WHICH ALWAYS HAPPENS BUT WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO.

Considering the other comments on the sign up post, I'm in good company. :3

If you're into any of the Fire Emblem fandoms, claiming has started over at [community profile] fe_fest! I'm only a million years late noticing, haha, but I'm not really feeling any of the prompts anyway (except maybe the Pegasus Knights: Robot Unicorn Attack one, hahahaha).

There's a vague secret anon over on [community profile] fandomsecrets and I'm unreasonably annoyed by it, haha.

Tonight has been a night of reading Die Hard fanfiction. I just really love John/Matt. ♥

The local art supply store is having a pretty great sale and I'm reminding myself that self you do not need art supplies, don't do it. XD

[personal profile] imperion and I are going for coffee tomorrow! \o/
