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.

Synopsis: Darcy Lewis is a (mostly) self-rescuing princess who really likes her new toy.

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.

Spoilers: Extremely general for Captain America movies
Warnings: Discussions of abuse, torture, self-harm, injuries. Not a happy, but a hopeful ending.

So this little fic gives me my first bingo of the year at [community profile] hc_bingo after more months than strictly needed. The next fic, I started this month, finished this month, and gives me a bingo all on its own. Yep. Sigh.

Title: Head Case
Fandom: Stargate
Rating: PG
Length: ~2,200 words
Spoilers: For SG-1 and SGA as a whole
Synopsis: He knew it was going to take a little more than aspirin to cure this particular headache.
Author's Notes: For the "headaches/migraines" square at [community profile] hc_bingo. Also because I wanted to poke at this particular headcanon of mine.

I can haz a stocking?

Sorry I haven't been around much - RL has been a little beyond stressful and time-consuming as of late. I do have two short stories to post, and have been working on a soul-consuming longer one that I want to at least finish the draft of soon.

Anyway, it's that time of the year again, so here's a a link to my stocking over at [community profile] fandom_stocking. I don't have every single fandom listed, just what struck my fancy when I came across the signup link this time around. There's still time to sign up for one of your own, if you are interested!

And now, back to work...

Ran my first 5K today! It was the Chocoholic Frolic because, really, if you're going to make me run over three miles there sure as hell better be chocolate at the end. :)

Final time of 37:25 - shaving four and a half minutes off of my best time during training!

Yes, this is (partially) what I have been doing instead of writing for the past month or so...

Title: Plead the Belly
Pairing: Bucky Barnes/Darcy Lewis
Rating: Hard R/Light NC-17
Length: 5,600 words
Warnings: Kidnapping, implication of forced pregnancy, discussion of abortion
Summary: Female pirates once tried it in an attempt to save their lives, so it was totally worth a shot, right? Or, a kidnapped Darcy refuses to be Hydra's pawn and maybe kinda freaks out her friends with the truth of it.
Author's Notes: For the "difficult/unexpected pregnancy" entry at [community profile] hc_bingo. Not how I planned breaking into this pairing, but the other fic has grown a life of its own and I have no idea when I'll finish it.

I totally missed that Yuletide signups had started. My fight with the new LJ format issues means I tend not to go there as much anymore. My fight with DW constantly either reloading a page or locking it up entirely means I haven't been there as much either.

Hint: The world uses a lot more mobile devices now, make your damn site compatable.

Anyway, I am honestly thinking of not signing up for Yuletide this year. I'm not seeing as many fandoms that I like to read and/or write for as usual, and don't know if I'd have the time to offer anything either. I obsess about what I'm obsessed with, and right now that includes:
- Avengers fic
- Specifically Bucky/Darcy fic (I don't know, it just works for me)
- Working out
- Training for the upcoming run
- Regretting working out and training when my body protests with far too much pain
- Stressing about work

This may change, possibly soon, but that's where my head is at right now.
