LJ Stuff

I have not actively used LJ for a couple of years now, just cross-posted from DW instead with occasional posts to communities to say I had a new fic, but I haven't even done that for a while. Ever since they moved the servers, I have been slammed with spam comments on posts that are years old (oddly, they all seem to pre-date the DW cross-posts).

Anyway, I'm letting the paid account expire. I think this just means fewer icon choices and ads for me, but let me know if there's extra crap. Not sure if I'll still cross-post or not, to be honest.

If you are thinking that at least some of this is politically inspired, you would not be wrong. I won't preach my views here, others have said things far more elequently than I, but I will leave it as a confirmation that I have some views and follow them.

2016 Writing Roll Call

It's time for the 2016 Roll Call post. Did a fraction of what I used to in the days of old, but whatever - that 85K one totally makes up for it, right? Also only got one bingo over at [community profile] hc_bingo since there is no way I'm finishing one that answers five separate prompts in time.

So, grouping these by fandom, as one does apparently...

Lucifer 1 fic )

Marvel 10 fics )

Merlin 1 fic )

Stargate: Atlantis 1 fic )

Stranger Things 1 fic )


Not too bad.

Now to getting around to finishing that one and posting the one that's pretty much been done for ages but I totally forgot to post.

Avengers - Seriously

Title: Seriously
Pairing: Darcy & Bucky friendship, pre-Darcy/Bucky
Genre: Crossover with the Sentinel Universe
Spoilers: Not CA:CW compliant unless you assume everyone has worked past their differences.
Length: 85,700 words - I don't know either, it just happened.
Synopsis: She takes very little seriously in a life filled with aliens and super heroes, but she might just make an exception for a guy with some serious PTSD issues that reminds her of someone else she knows far too well.
Author's Notes: I have no excuse for this. I also have no idea how something I thought would be maybe 25K words ended up closer to 85K instead. Set very soundly in the Marvel universe with very little of Cascade and its own heroes mentioned. Huge thanks to my loving partner who got the internet working again so I could post this.

Achievement Unlocked

Made myself a silly goal just under one year ago. I decided that, not only was I going to run a 5K after never running before and barely starting an exercise regime, but that I wanted to do 5 of them. Before my birthday next year. Also, just running 5K on the treadmill didn't count.

Completed my 5th 5K yesterday! Didn't quite get the time I wanted with it, but finished it and made my goal!

Whoo to the hoo?

Chocoholic Frolic
Everybody's Irish (benefiting Children's Hospital)
Hot Chocolate (benefiting the Ronald McDonald House)
Heart of the City (benefiting Kids Serving Kids)
Run HOME for Jacob (benefiting the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center)

Might do more. Might give my ankle a bit of a rest first though.

Comments & Such

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.

Mistake

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.

RL Update-like Thing

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.
