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.]

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...

Back from CONvergence Con where I spent pretty much every day since last Wednesday doing something for the con.

Full disclaimer: I volunteer at the con and am a member of the convention committee. My views may be biased, but in weird ways.

Anyways, helped with move-in and set-up on Wednesday and then both worked with my department and attended panels and the like from Thursday through Sunday, save for when I was called away for still con-related stuff, but not directly at the con for a few hours.

It was fun, but damn am I tired. So glad that I have figured out to take the following Monday off of work as well so I can try to catch up on some sleep.

Check out the main site for general info about the con and guests and the like. Check out the #cvg2015 tag on Tumblr and Twitter for pics far better than anything I got. I will say that multiple guests to the con have stated publically that they have liked this one better than some of the others around. Maybe it's the Minnesota Nice schtick, or maybe it's because we actually try to pay attention to them as something more than monkeys to perform on command. Whatever it is, we're nice to them, they're nice to us, and it makes it far lower stress all around. :)

There were some awesome costumes and cool panels and beautiful artwork too. That's not to say there weren't some grumpy drunks and assholes along the way as well, but there's going to be that pretty much anywhere.

Anyway, I am rambly, which is a sign of how awake I am. I still need to prep for mom's visit later this week as well, so...

I was wondering when this would come out again and was trying to keep an eye out for it, but totally missed it until I went back through my feed this weekend.

It's time for [community profile] hc_bingo again!

I know some people have qualms about it and whatnot, but I have found it to be a wonderful way of breaking through writer's block by offering prompts that you can take literally, or turn on their head.

Anyway, my card is beneath the cut )

I'm sorry! I'm totally behind on comments yet again. I hope to get to them soon, once life dies down a bit.

Each and every comment is appreciated and adored, please know that. Even if I'm crap at responding.

So we're in line to check out at Target when the following exchange happened with a young cashier:

Him: Is that an Agent Carter shirt?

Me: Yep, it is.

Him: Oh my god! I love that show! I'm, like, behind two episodes though.

Me: Did you know it was renewed?

Him: It was? Excellent!

Me: Yep, Agent Carter, Agents of SHIELD, and Orphan Black were all renewed.

Second Cashier: He's never going to sleep again...

He also complimented E's She Hulk shirt and debated potential casting with her. This is after he assured a little girl that yes, he remembered her Barbie but figured she didn't want it in the same bag as her brother's Ultron doll, "even though Barbie could totally kick his butt."

This was also after hitting the archery range where a blonde man in a Hawkeye purple t-shirt was both shooting beside us and complimenting our shots and shirts.

Some days, people aren't half bad.

I have thoughts and feelings and all that, but will probably work those out via fic. To that end, I have a question:

Due to a confluence on my Tumblr dash, I now want a crossover fic where Peggy Carter (MCU) runs across Mel Pappas and Janice Covington (Xena). Rule 34 means this should exist any minute now, right?

"I need a title..."

"It can't be Berries, not again."

"Oh, please, who's even going to get that reference anymore?"

"Holy shit, you're the Cat that wrote Berries?"


Dude, that was seriously like 15 years ago, I think. How? Like, seriously, how?
