I swear I will get to answering comments soon, for really.

Life got weird, both health- and family-wise, and then I done gone got me a promotion. Little on the frightened side for that last one, but it starts tomorrow so I better suck it up and move on.

I swear I'm not avoiding things by watching every scrap of Olympic coverage I can find. Okay, mostly not. :)

Anyway, will respond soon.

Made the mistake of going to Facebook during an election year. Normally fairly calm people are going apeshit and posting links to so much hate and lies - and it doesn't matter which candidate they are supporting/against, all sides have gone equally nuts. One aunt got a page solely so she can post extreme right-wing posts despite otherwise having no issue with the glbt members of the family. Another is posting any unfounded rumor she may find about anyone remotely on the republican side of the coin.

Very tempted to post something along the lines of: "As a lesbian married to a woman of color and raising our mixed race children together, don't assume I share your views. Also, as someone from a family of hunters who worked their way up from nothing to being able to do more than scape by, don't assume I share your views."

Somehow, I don't think this would go over very well.

Sorry for the lack of posts/stories/etc. I do have a series pretty much ready to go that I might get the chance to post this weekend.

Anyway, an extremely short version of the current real life shenanigans that have been keeping me busy goes as follows:
1) Tons of new stuff to do at work.
2) Helping son with his own real life adventures.
3) Had a cancer scare that sent me into overdrive and less daily panic attacks and more week-long attacks. Turned out benign, which is of the good, but it took a while to get to that point. Now I just have the physical and financial scars, but those are doable (work insurance is not the world's best, but far better than a lot of other places).

Not posting for sympathy, just for updates and such even though I know very few people still read this site.

Thanks.

Cat.

Finished my third 5K on Saturday. Been running and working out and, yes, writing when I can and am horribly behind on replies again. I swear I am not ignoring people!

Also? My coworkers were kind enough to gift me with the cold that has been going around. I don't get sick. I get allergies and sinus infections from those, but not colds. I hate this. I may, possibly, have taken far too much cold meds and really need to stay away from things that will create permanent records right about now. I am breathing though. Lightheaded and goofy and giggly, but breathing.

I promise I will try to respond to things soon!

Thank you, as always, for your patience!

Had the following exchange at the gym when I finished using one of the machines:

Random Father: Excuse me, are you done with that one?
Me: Yep, it's all yours.
Random Father's Son: Aw, man, you couldn't say no, could you?
Me: Sorry, dude.
Father: Tell you what, you only have to do the weight she was doing.
Son: [wary] What weight was it?
Father: 75 lbs
Son: No.
Father: Are you saying that a woman, a girl can do more than you?
Son: Yes. Yes, I am.

I may have laughed out loud.

It might not seem like it right now with the distinct lack of posting, but I really am actually writing. I've got two long fics I'm poking at that are nowhere near done yet, so it'll be a while still.

So, here's the issue: both fics focus on the same characters and I've reached that almost-obsession stage about said characters. I think I need a break? Like, a little distraction so that I can come back to them with the excited "what are they going to do next?" and not just "oh, hey, you guys again..."

Which leads me to: Prompt me? Please?

List two characters and a one to two word prompt. No promises for epic-length results, but you'll get something short and sweet in the very least.

Check out my tags for a list of fandoms I usually write in. I'll also toss in The 100, The Originals, and Galavant though were slightly behind on The Originals right now.

Hit me? Pretty please?

A (very) belated thanks for all the well wishes for the new year.

RL has been interesting in the Irish sense of the word, and all-consuming in pretty much the literal. I've been hiding out, writing self-indulgent fic the few spare moments I have, and hoping for things to calm down enough soon enough.

So, thank you kindly to everyone here and on [community profile] fandom_stocking for the good thoughts and great gifts. They are very much appreciated.

[As a side note for those of you looking for me on Tumblr: the app was annoying the crap out of me by not loading and skipping posts and locking up and the like, so I haven't been there for a bit. Might try it again if they improve the app.]

This is a long, long way from the years where I wrote 70+ fics. Too much stress, too little time, too much RL - it all added up.

To be fair though, I have also spent the vast majority of the year poking at a total self-indulgent fic that currently stands at 51k and wow, I thought it was like at 30k so, um, yeah, there's a reason right there.

Anyway, fic breakdown for 2015:Under the Cut )

Only 12 finished fics. I has a sad.
